- Inequality and Poverty
Over the last 30 years, wage inequality in the United States has increased substantially, with the overall level of inequality now approaching the extreme level that prevailed prior to the Great Depression. We find that lower-tail inequality rose sharply in the s and contracted somewhat thereafter, while upper-tail inequality has increased steadily since
The poverty estimates are broadly consistent with independent evidence on per-capita expenditure, state domestic product and real agricultural wages. They show that poverty decline in the s proceeded more or less in line with earlier trends. Regional disparities increased in the s, with the southern and western regions doing much better than the northern and eastern regions. Economic inequality also increased within states, especially within urban areas, and between urban and rural areas.
Inequality, Poverty and Development in India
Poverty is necessary in order for there be to wealth. Every wealthy person takes up vastly more labor than they produce, which cannot be universal — their servants cannot also have servants. Poverty can never, and will never be eliminated under capitalism. In January , at the World Economic Forum at Davos, an Oxfam report on global inequality reiterated, once again, that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. The obverse of this is evident: the poor get poorer because their share of the national wealth is getting smaller and smaller. Despite this, the central government continues to hold the view that a higher rate of economic growth will alleviate poverty. However, macroeconomic indicators like gross domestic product GDP , or per capita income are insufficient to measure growth because they assume that the total national wealth is percolating to the lowest levels.

Majumder, Rajarshi : Removing poverty and inequality in India: the role of infrastructure. Developing countries attach enormous importance to physical infrastructure for poverty reduction. We contend that this association is different across types of infrastructure and regions. The present paper explores the multidimensional association between infrastructure and poverty in India in a regional framework. Infrastructural availability improves average living standards and lowers the incidence of poverty but the relation between infrastructural situation and inequality indicates higher inequality in regions with better infrastructure, especially for rural areas. Various sub-components of infrastructure have different impacts on poverty reduction and policy formulations should focus on such differentiated roles while drawing up programmes.

The present article carries that project forward with some additional results and analyses relating to trends and levels of consumer expenditure in rural India. The outcome, as we shall see, is at least as grim as the findings that have been portended in the Business Standard.. In the wake of the Business Standard reports, the Government of India has decided not to release the draft NSO Report, apparently on grounds of the questionable quality of the data presented in it. First, one can think of no good reason for not releasing the Report, even if the data contained in it are unreliable: the Government is, of course, free to question the quality of the data, and to distance itself from the findings to which the Report lends itself, but why deny the option, indeed the democratic necessity, of allowing it into the public domain? After all, the country is not wanting in economists and statisticians who have a long-standing familiarity with survey methods and protocols, and therefore the competence and expertise needed to form an independent judgement of their own on the merits of the Report! Indeed, the findings of the NSO consumption survey were not particularly complimentary to an assessment of economic performance in that year, and the government of the day predictably expressed reservations regarding the reliability of that survey, but without, for that reason, suppressing it.
As India is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, poverty is on the decline in the country, with close to 18 Indians escaping extreme poverty every minute, as per the World Poverty Clock. India had In May , the World Bank reviewed and proposed revisions to their poverty calculation methodology and purchasing power parity basis for measuring poverty worldwide. As of , the incidence of multidimensional poverty has significantly reduced, declining from Despite the pandemic its economy is healing .
Inequality and Poverty
The student doing a graduate course in the measurement of inequality and poverty is all too often plunged directly into the complexities of Schur-convex functions, dominance conditions, partial orders and the axiomatics of characterization theorems. Inequality and poverty as phenomena with profound social and moral implications for the world we live in tend to get submerged in a treatment of the subject that is more suggestive of applied mathematics than of the material conditions of life. This is in no way to deny that measurement must deal uncompromisingly with measurement, and therefore with the protocols of formal logic and technical rigour.
