Economists and Poverty: From Adam Smith to Amartya Sen

Neelambar Hatti (Editor) Daniel Rauhut (Editor) Carl-Axel Olsson (Editor)
Synopsis Throughout history the poor have been considered to be some sort of groups on the fringes of the society and for which the society has had to care for. Poverty, and the poor, has been often sometimes by structural factors.
