One illness away : why people become poor and how they escape poverty by Anirudh Krishna( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and German and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why does poverty persist? A critical, but so far ignored, part of the answer lies in the fact that poverty is regularly created. Large numbers of people are escaping poverty, but large numbers are concurrently falling into chronic poverty. This book presents the first large-scale examination of the reasons why people fall into poverty and how they escape it in diverse contexts. Drawing upon personal interviews with 35,000 households in different parts of India, Kenya, Uganda, Peru, and the United States, it takes you on an illustrative journey, filled with facts, analyses, and the life stories of people who fell into abject poverty and others who managed to escape their seemingly predetermined fates. Letting a farmhand's son or daughter remain a farmhand, even though she or he is potentially the next Einstein, is a tragedy that poor people witness time after time. Remedying this situation is crucial for making poverty history. This book addresses how equal opportunity can be promoted and how slum-born millionaires can arise in reality. Speaking to Barack Obama's message for more effective health care, One Illness Away feeds directly into current public debates. Learning from thousands of individual experiences, this book presents a clear agenda for action and provides more effective ways of keeping people out of micro poverty traps."--Publisher's description

Poverty, participation, and democracy : a global perspective by Anirudh Krishna( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Evidence from twenty-four diverse countries of Asia, Africa, and Latin America examined in this volume shows that poor people do not value democracy any less than their richer counterparts. Their faith in democracy is as high as that of other citizens, and they participate in democratic activities as much as their richer counterparts. Democracy is not likely to be unstable or unwelcome simply because poverty is widespread. Political attitudes and participation levels are unaffected by relative wealth. Education, rather than income or wealth, makes for more committed and engaged democratic citizens. Investments in education will make a critical difference for stabilizing and strengthening democracy."--Jacket

Experimentally testable noncontextuality inequalities via Fourier-Motzkin elimination by Anirudh Krishna( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Generalized noncontextuality as defined by Spekkens is an attempt to make precise the distinction between classical and quantum theories. It is a restriction on models used to reproduce the predictions of quantum mechanics. There has been considerable progress recently in deriving experimentally robust noncontextuality inequalities. The violation of these inequalities is a sufficient condition for an experiment to not admit a generalized noncontextual model. In this thesis, we present an algorithm to automate the derivation of noncontextuality inequalities. At the heart of this algorithm is a technique called Fourier Motzkin elimination (abbrev. FM elimination). After a brief overview of the generalized notion of contextuality and FM elimination, we proceed to demon- strate how this algorithm works by using it to derive noncontextuality inequalities for a number of examples. Belinfante's construction, presented first for the sake of pedagogy, is based on a simple proof by Belinfante to demonstrate the invalidity of von Neumann's notion of noncontextuality. We provide a quantum realization on a single qubit that can violate this inequality. We then go on to discuss paradigmatic proofs of noncontextuality such as the Peres-Mermin square, Mermin's Star and the 18 vector construction and use them to derive robust noncontextuality inequalities using the algorithm. We also show how one can generalize the noncontextuality inequalities obtained for the Peres-Mermin square to systems with continuous variables

Social capital, collective action, and the state : understanding economic development, community peace, and democratic governance in rural north India by Anirudh Krishna( )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social capital--measured with the help of a locally-relevant scale devised for this purpose--turns out, on the other hand, to be a village characteristic that is significantly associated with economic development as well as communal peace and democratic participation. Agency is required, however, for drawing upon the stock of social capital and for deriving a flow of benefits. Different agency types help to mobilize social capital with respect to different societal objectives
