Poverty in the Philippines: Income, Assets, and Access
Asian Development Bank, 2005 - 152 pagini
This publication examines official income poverty statistics and trends, but takes a multidimensional approach in exploring questions of access. The report looks at access by the poor to five important assets: human, physical, natural, social, and financial capital. The report identifies seven broad causes of poverty: macroeconomic problems, employment issues, rapid population growth, low agricultural productivity, governance concerns including corruption, armed conflict, and physical disability.
