By drawing on insights from economics, psychology, and sociology, the authors provide readers with a deeper understanding of the complex interplay of factors that perpetuate poverty and the potential pathways to sustainable development and economic empowerment.

Whether you’re a policymaker, development practitioner, or concerned citizen, “Poor Economics” offers valuable insights and actionable strategies for tackling one of the most pressing challenges of our time. Prepare to be inspired and challenged by this groundbreaking book, which offers a fresh perspective on poverty and the potential for meaningful change.
