dc.description.abstract The opening up of both economies to global markets was accompanied by an improved income distribution in Brazil while it worsened in India. Since the middle of the twentieth century, the countries have had similar average rates of growth (between 4 and 5 per cent per annum). Brazil grew rapidly to 1980 while India grew slowly; after 1980 the pattern was reversed. Labour market segregations and segmentations and regional inequality are examined in the paper. Regional differences in wages and employment have widened in India and narrowed in Brazil in the last two decades. The paper compares the economies of India and Brazil. en
