Reviews and empirical analysis
The IPC-IG and the OECD structured the project in four phases: (i) identification of potentially growth-conducive individual behaviours according to the main economic theories of development; (ii) review of the international literature on the impacts of social benefits on individual behaviours that lead to inclusive growth; (iii) definition of countries, databases and analytical models to empirically measure the relationship between social benefits and individual behaviours; and (iv) empirical analysis of the relationship between social benefits and individual behaviours that lead to inclusive growth.
