Ahmad, Ehtisham, Dreze, Jean, Hills, John


The term "social security" has a very different meaning in underdeveloped countries -- whose populations live in great insecurity -- and is best understood as poverty alleviation. This book attempts to define social security in the Third World and to examine what sort of programs are most suitable for developing countries. The authors review current literature on the subject. Some chapters explore broad themes, others contain case studies describing social security provisions in various regions of Asia, Latin America, and Southern Africa. This illuminating study will be of interst to development economists as well as those working in international organizations concerned with policy-making in the Third World and management of resources.Ahmad, Ehtisham is the author of 'Social Security in Developing Countries', published 1991 under ISBN 9780198233008 and ISBN 0198233000.
