Thanks, Alex. As I say, with respect to the poverty, inequality and growth issue, it would be interesting to see how far inequality would need to fall to reach the poverty goal for different economic growth forecasts. Then stakeholders would be in a position to have a debate about how much extra inequality-reduction they'd like to see beyond what's necessary to see poverty "ended". I see the issue of which measure we use as a second-order one. As for education and health (and for that matter other non-income goals too), my personal view is that targets should reflect not just how the population as a whole fares but also how different groups (especially the poor) fare compared to the rest of the population. The need for that is pretty clear from my maps. AW.
