A bit about poverty

While we’re on the subject of poverty, seeing as we have a tag devoted to the subject, and the current government has so keenly focussed on addressing it, we thought it might be useful to understand the concept of poverty. There’s a pretty solid backgrounder up here: http://www.thesouthasian.org/archives/2009/poverty_backgrounder.html and maybe it will form the basis for future discussions on this blog about how best to address poverty and to critically and knowledgably evaluate the efforts of the UPA government.
