Papers discuss the millennium development goals--an assessment; globalization, growth, and distribution--framing the questions; investment efficiency and the distribution of wealth; gender equality, poverty reduction, and growth--a Copernican quest; inequality of opportunity for education--Turkey; the (indispensable) middle class in developing countries; outlining a research agenda on the links between globalization and poverty; global wage inequality and the international flow of migrants; international migration and development; and globalization and a freer movement of labor.
