    Reforming benefits in Lithuania to generate a double dividend: Making work pay while better protecting the jobless

    Inequality measures in Lithuania (like in Estonia and Latvia) are high. To an important extent this is related to the high risk of poverty for non-working individuals and to the low rewards to work.
