About the author(s):


In this book the author looks at how the concept of “poverty” has evolved over the years, changes in the criteria for setting the poverty line, and poverty around the world. The discussions pay special attention to methodological issues related to quantitative measurements of poverty, including how income and other determinants of welfare, including wealth distribution, should be factored in and weighted when measuring poverty and wellbeing.
