Selection Criteria for Pro-Poor Economic Growth Policies

Selection Criteria for Pro-Poor Economic Growth Policies

Ratings: (0)|Views: 29 |Likes:
Published by Jason Wolfe
Selection Criteria for Pro-Poor Economic Growth Policies, also written by Albert Berry, discusses both the conceptual and operational challenges of pro-poor policy initiatives. Berry makes a compelling case for pro-poor policies based on concise definitions and rigorous application of cost-benefit analysis. In his treatment of poverty and poverty reduction, he makes a distinction between income poverty and basic needs poverty. The former relies on the standard practice of defining people as income poor if per capita family income falls below a certain level and of taking into account not only the number of such people (the “head count”) but also the gap between income and the poverty line (the “poverty gap”). The basic needs poverty that figures prominently in this study considers people’s access to food, clean water and sanitation, and health and education. The study considers both income and basic needs poverty in complimentary terms as it sets an analytical foundation for the selection of pro-poor policies.
