Economic Growth, Rural Assets and Prosperity. Exploring a twenty year record from Tanzania

February 22, 2016 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

| Free
Tanzania - test

Many measures of poverty suggest that recent economic growth has benefitted a fortunate few, but not many of the worst off, particularly in rural areas. Professor Brockington will present a different picture. His work, based on revisiting households first visited in the early 1990s, suggests that many of the poorest households are now much better off than they were. If so this has important implications for agricultural and anti-poverty policies in rural areas.
