Co-operatives and Poverty Reduction: Evidence from Sri Lanka and Tanzania

Friday, 16 January 2009

Why are there so many poor people in the world? Why, in a world of food
surpluses are so many people not getting enough to eat? Why, in a world
of enormous medical advances are so many children dying of preventable
diseases? Why, with all the billions of dollars of aid flowing from North
to South, are many countries stagnating, and conditions for their citizens
getting worse? These are simple questions, but the answers seem to be very
complicated, and are explored here through the lens of co-operative development.
