During the s and s most developing countries imposed anti-agricultural policies, while many high-income countries restricted agricultural imports and subsidized their farmers.

Attempts to model the political economy of the developing countries’ transition to high-income democracies proliferate, despite scepticism that the process is too complex and idiosyncratic to. A developing country (or a low and middle income country (LMIC), less developed country, less economically developed country (LEDC), or underdeveloped country) is a country with a less developed industrial base and a low Human Development Index (HDI) relative to other countries.

However, this definition is not universally agreed upon. There is also no clear agreement on which countries fit. The problem of absolute poverty that plagued the Chinese nation for thousands of years is expected to be solved once for all.

China’s miraculous poverty alleviation story shows, that to eradicate poverty, developing countries must have sustained economic growth. Which in essence is China’s “poverty alleviation story”. The contributors to this book capture several of the key dimensions of good governance, as well as what deleterious and negative consequences may arise in its absence.

They draw analysis and solutions from diverse sectors such as economics, public administration, management, and political science, in order to treat some of the most pressing societal issues of our time. Poverty is a social fact of life for billions of people around the world.

Perhaps they wish to pay lip service to the good cause of eliminating either poverty or the poor.Dorothea Meyer is Senior Lecturer in Tourism, and leads the special interest research group ‘Political Economy of Tourism for Development', at Sheffield Hallam University, UK.

She specialises in the political economy of tourism development, and the role of tourism as an agent for poverty reduction in less economically developed countries.During the s and s most developing countries imposed anti-agricultural policies, while many high-income countries restricted agricultural imports and subsidized their farmers.

Both sets of policies inhibited economic growth and poverty alleviation in developing countries, while doing little to assist small farmers in high-income countries.
