Understanding Conditions in Income Transfer Programmes: A Brief(est) Note

Published on 1 May 2007

‘Are people in poverty more or less like you and me but with less money?’ There is a sense in which the correct answer to this question is ‘Yes’. People in poverty have not dropped in from Venus or Mars; they are not an altogether different species to people who are not in
poverty.

In all probability, measured by studies distinguishing between chronic and transient poverty, some of those who are not currently in poverty will fall into poverty at some stage in their lives.
