Understanding Poverty: Is India’s Inclusive Growth Model Flawed?
[yt video = -rtySUhuokM?rel=0]
It is time for the world to reconsider who is dependent on welfare. Poverty is not only the lack of income and wealth but also the poverty of power. A key part of the poverty of power is to be defined as dependent: dependent on charity, handouts, welfare. Yet, it is the wealthy, not the poor, who are dependent on government subsidies. To transform dependency into self-determination is the work of poor people’s movements. To demonstrate the dependency of the wealthy on welfare as well as on the labour of the poor must be our collective work.
The #GlobalPOV Project is a program of the Global Poverty and Practice (GPP) Minor. Based at the Blum centre for Developing Economies, University of California, Berkeley, the GPP Minor creates new ways of thinking about poverty, inequality and undertaking poverty action.
