Editorial
The World Bank’s main criterion for classifying economies isgross national income (GNI) per capita, and every economy isclassified as low income, middle income (sub-divided into lowermiddle and upper middle), or high income. There are currently103 middle-income countries (MICs), defined as such by having aper capita GNI between US$1,036 and US$12,615 (2013).Over recent decades, MICs have made a significant contributionto global development through their higher growth rates,accompanied by progress in their social spheres. They are a fast-growing group of countries, both in terms of population and of key economic and human development indicators, with a shareof around a third of global manufactured value added.However, in parallel with some macroeconomic successes,there has been a significant shift in global poverty towards MICs.Some of the world’s most populous countries (India, Indonesiaand Nigeria, for example) have recently joined this category, withthe result that a majority of the world’s poor now live in middle-income countries.Despite being a diverse group by size, population and incomelevel, the MICs share a number of key common challenges todevelopment and some of these are explored by the contributorsto this issue of
