Just give money to the poor : the development revolution from the global south by Joseph Hanlon( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amidst all the complicated economic theories about the causes and solutions to poverty, one idea is so basic it seems radical: just give money to the poor. Despite its skeptics, researchers have found again and again that cash transfers given to significant portions of the population transform the lives of recipients. Countries from Mexico to South Africa to Indonesia are giving money directly to the poor and discovering that they use it wisely -- to send their children to school, to start a business and to feed their families. Directly challenging an aid industry that thrives on complexity and mystification, with highly paid consultants designing ever more complicated projects, Just Give Money to the Pooroffers the elegant southern alternative ' bypass governments and NGOs and let the poor decide how to use their money. Stressing that cash transfers are not charity or a safety net, the authors draw an outline of effective practices that work precisely because they are regular, guaranteed and fair. This book, the first to report on this quiet revolution in an accessible way, is essential reading for policymakers, students of international development and anyone yearning for an alternative to traditional poverty-alleviation methods. -- Back cover

The chronic poverty report( )

in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ʺThe Chronic Poverty Reports are the flagship policy engagement publications of the Chronic Poverty Research Centre around the world. ... In 2004, the Centre published the first Chronic Poverty Report, the first major international development report to focus on chronic poverty. This report examined the dimensions of chronic poverty - the number of people who suffer it, where they live, who they are and why chronic poverty exists. In 2008, the Centre [has published] the second Chronic Poverty Report, which looks in more depth at possible solutions. It identifies five main traps - insecurity, limited citizenship, spatial disadvantage, social discrimination and poor work opportunities - which create chronic poverty, and sets out key policy responses."
