  • This comment examines the paper titled 'Progress on poverty in Africa: How have growth and inequality mattered?' (Fosu and Gafa, this issue of AREF). Although the authors have made good use of existing data to reveal various issues related to income inequality, economic growth, and poverty in Africa, it is difficult to appreciate how the paper addresses more detailed and fine-grained issues of inequality in Africa. Given earlier contributions on the same area of investigation and the inclusion of such detailed studies in this special issue, my critique can be regarded as a call on African economists to blend the general and the specific in probing complex issues of inequality in Africa.
