Dear Ali
You are correct that what we call shared prosperity, namely significant income or consumption growth for the bottom 40% of the distribution in Turkey was not associated with a decline in income inequality. The reason we nonetheless think economic development has been inclusive is because of the reduction in equality of access to basic services, in particular health care over this period. For a sustained future decline in inequality, the still significant inequalities of in educational outcomes linked to differences in socioeconomic backgrounds need to be tackled.
