The poor and the poorest : some interim findings by Michael Lipton( Book )

11 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many governments in developing countries, donors, and nongovernmental organizations have been trying to use their resources in ways that steer the benefits towards poor people. Sharp discontinuities exist between poor and ultra-poor, but not between poor and non-poor. These differences, especially in regard to labor-market and demographic behaviors and responses, are related to income linked nutritional risks incurred, often lifelong, by ultra-poor households only. This does not prove that policies, aimed at raising productivity among the poor, do not help the ultra-poor, but it does strongly suggest that the ultra-poor may require different policies, in particular "calories and health first, " if they are to be able to raise their productivity

Modern varieties, international agricultural research, and the poor by Michael Lipton( Book )

6 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does the utilization of modern varieties or MVs in plant cultivation really help the poor? This paper takes a look at this issue and examines the evidence on effects of MVs on poor people as producers, laborers and consumers. In many environments, modern varieties (MVs) of plants now produce higher yields of less costly calories and less vulnerability to drought and disease, even without purchased inputs, per ton of food. The bio-economic impact of MVs should be especially favorable to smaller farmers, hired workers, and poor consumers, yet much of this "pro-poor potential" has been lost due to (a) insertion of MVs into social systems favoring urban groups and the big farmers who supply them, (b) demographic dynamics making labor cheaper relative to land, and (c) research structures prioritizing fashionable topics rather than genuine needs of the poor. Consumers' gains, from lower prices due to the extra thirty to seventy million tons of grain produced yearly, thanks to MVs, seem clearest and most pro-poor, as poorer people spend much larger parts of income on cereals. However, in many countries, extra MV-based output has mainly displaced imports, not increased available calories per person, mainly because rather little extra purchasing-power per person reached the poor
