Arief Anshory Yusuf, Kyunghoon Kim - UNU-WIDER, 2022 - Helsinki, Finland

According to the World Bank, Indonesia has reached the upper-middle income status in 2019 after spending almost two decades in the lower-middle income country group. Despite the setback of COVID-19 the Indonesian government aspires to become a ‘developed’ country by 2045, when...

– A new set of estimates for Indonesia by gender, geography, and generation
Diding Sakri, Andy Sumner, Arief Anshory Yusuf - UNU-WIDER, 2022 - Helsinki, Finland

Various scholars have estimated levels of intergenerational mobility in OECD countries. Fewer estimates are available for developing countries, where mobility arguably matters more due to starker differences in living standards. This paper presents new estimates of mobility for a developing...

– The case of Indonesia
Kyunghoon Kim, Andy Sumner - Structural Change and Economic Dynamics, 2021 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Discussions on the developing world's industrial policies have largely neglected the role of state-owned entities. This paper argues that the resurgence of state capitalism has been, in part, the response of developing countries to the recent pattern of structural transformation involving...

Ervin Dervisevic, Maria C. Lo Bue, Elizaveta Perova - UNU-WIDER, 2021 - Helsinki, Finland

Is maternal employment beneficial or harmful for child development? Maternal employment generates income, which is needed to provide core inputs for children’s health and education. However, maternal employment comes at the cost of time spent with children, which is also a critical input...

– The case of Indonesia
Arief Anshory Yusuf, Putri Riswani Halim - UNU-WIDER, 2021 - Helsinki, Finland

This paper analyses the labour market dynamics in Indonesia from 2001 to 2015 and explores the role of the changing nature of occupational employment in explaining the rising earnings inequality during the same period. First, we find evidence of a disproportionate increase in the returns to...

Working Paper pdf
Olivier Bargain, Maria C. Lo Bue, Flaviana Palmisano - UNU-WIDER, 2021 - Helsinki, Finland

We suggest a simple and flexible criterion to assess inter-generational mobility. It accommodates different types of outcomes (continuous outcomes such as potential earnings, or discrete ones such as education groups) and captures dynastic improvements of such outcomes at different points of the...

Niken Kusumawardhani, Rezanti Pramana, Nurmala Saputri, Daniel Suryadarma - UNU-WIDER, 2021 - Helsinki, Finland

Greater female labour market participation has important positive implications not only for women’s empowerment and the well-being of their families but also for the economy they live in. In this paper, we examine the various effects of internet availability on women’s labour market...

Maria C. Lo Bue, Flaviana Palmisano - Oxford Bulletin of Economics And Statistics , 2020

The canonical approach to analyse the poverty impact of growth is based on the comparison of poverty before and after growth. Measurement tools endorsing this approach fail to capture the different experiences of poverty dynamic in the population: there can be groups of the population made...

– Long-term evidence from Indonesia
Mayang Rizky, Daniel Suryadarma, Asep Suryahadi - UNU-WIDER, 2020 - Helsinki, Finland

We use long-spanning individual longitudinal data to examine the long-term labour market outcomes of low-tier informal workers. We investigate their characteristics, calculate the extent of switching, and identify the characteristics of those who have switched. Finally, we estimate the earnings...

– Are factors outside individual responsibility persistent over time?
Rajius Idzalika, Maria C. Lo Bue - Journal of Development Studies, 2020 - London, United KIngdom

Not all sources of inequality in educational achievements are fair. But how strong and persistent is the burden of unequal opportunities that each person carries on in their life? In this paper, we define individual indices of the burden of circumstances, which measure the effect that the...

– Kuznets’ ‘developer’s dilemma’ in Indonesia
Kyunghoon Kim, Arriya Mungsunti, Andy Sumner, Arief Anshory Yusuf - UNU-WIDER, 2020 - Helsinki, Finland

We focus on special characteristics of the manufacturing sector, in terms of employment generation and productivity growth, that enable the rapid, resilient economic catch-up of developing countries. We consider the ‘developer’s dilemma’ and the relationship between...

– The role of shocks and measurement error
Stephan Klasen, Maria C. Lo Bue, Vincenzo Prete - UNU-WIDER, 2020 - Helsinki, Finland

Standard growth incidence curves describe how growth episodes impact on the overall income distribution. However, measuring the pro-poorness of the growth process is complex due to (i) measurement errors and (ii) effect shocks that may hit the percentiles of the income distribution in...

Maria C. Lo Bue - The Conversation UK, 2019

Indonesia is currently in the throes of an environmental emergency. Thousands of hectares of forest are burning across the vast country, causing toxic smoke to be released into the atmosphere. This has led to eerie apocalyptic scenes of deep red skies, deserted streets and people with their faces...
