Release Date: 2006-01-01
Genre: Social Science

. . . the volume makes interesting reading. . . The language of the text is indeed lucid and the organization of the materials could not have been better. Arup Mitra, The Developing Economies This is an important book making a convincing case that structural elements are of crucial importance in filtering the impact of growth on poverty. A successful development strategy needs to address these structural elements at the country level and modify them in order to take greater advantage of the potential benefits of globalization in reducing poverty. Erik Thorbecke, Cornell University, US This volume makes an important contribution to our understanding of the complex relationship between economic growth and poverty reduction. The focus on assessing the impact of specific poverty-reduction interventions at the disaggregated, case-study level marks an important and welcome departure from the standard approach to research in this area . . . researchers and practitioners working in the field of poverty reduction and development in Asia and beyond will find much to interest them in this stimulating and informative volume. Colin Kirkpatrick, University of Manchester, UK Poverty Strategies in Asia is an examination of a wide range of measures aimed at reducing poverty in the region. It is widely recognized that while high and sustained economic growth is critical for poverty reduction, there are other policy interventions that may also be significant in a growth plus approach to poverty reduction. This volume brings together a series of case studies on the poverty impact of alternative interventions in a broad range of Asian economies. The measures examined within the book cover trade liberalization both in general and in a specific market, infrastructure investment (particularly in roads), population policies, cash transfers, microfinance, employment guarantee programs and contract farming. The countries covered include the Philippines, Lao PDR, Pakistan, India and Thailand. While the results illustrated by the contributors are mixed, they demonstrate the potential for further progress in poverty reduction. This latest joint publication by the ADBI and Edward Elgar Publishing will be warmly welcomed by scholars and researchers of Asian studies and development. Professional economists within international and bilateral development agencies and policymakers will also find much to engage them.
