Poverty: By Chance or By Choice the hidden forces that shape the poor and the poverty

Author Name: Antarjeeta Nayak, Ramakrishna Biswal | Format: Paperback | Genre : Philosophy | Other Details

“Why poor are poor? Who can cure poverty; ‘God’ or the
‘NO POVERTY’ tops the list of Sustainable Development
Goals 2030. Several government and non-government
organizations are working towards ending poverty for a
long time. But, much of their work and several anti-poverty
policies have failed over the years because of a skewed
understanding of poverty. Several theories and approaches,
social scientists, and laureates often miss capturing the
intrinsic cause of poverty. Ending poverty in all its forms
requires an understanding of poverty in all its forms,
including the nucleus of it.

Careful attention has to be shown towards the pieces of
evidence for making thoughtful assessments on what really
impacts the poor and their poverty. The authors delve deep
into the human psyche to understand why the poor are
poor through intriguing case-studies. Poverty: By Chance or
By Choice is a book that can widen the horizons for a better
understanding of the poor and the poverty.
