Dear Mungai: Thanks for your comment. High GDP growth does not necessarily benefit the entire population usually because of high commodity prices (for commodity exporters). These high prices enable the rich to capture the rents, so the poor don't share in the nation's wealth. My point though was that, if you wanted to achieve high growth through public policies (as opposed to waiting for high commodity prices), those policies are the same as those that help the poor.
