The Poverty of Nations

Paul Spicker

Policy Press

Countries are poor, not just because they have many poor people, but because they are less developed than others; development reshapes the economic, social and political relationships in a country. Some accounts treat underdevelopment as something which is pathological or endemic in a country, but there are also strong structural reasons, including domination by other countries and structural dependency.
