Blog Examines New Report On Poverty

In Humanosphere, development blogger Tom Murphy discusses findings from a new report (.pdf) released by the Chronic Poverty Advisory Network. In the report, “the authors recommend that the world invest in three things: social assistance, education, and economic growth that reaches the world’s poorest. Not doing so would represent a major slow down in anti-poverty progress that saw historic gains over the past two decades. … [A]s the authors write, ‘Such investment could create a virtuous circle of poverty reduction, national economic growth and expanded individual opportunity. … Put simply, it will not be possible to “get to zero” unless development policies put those living in chronic poverty front and center'” (3/11).
