В 1979 году американский экономист Теодор Шульц получил премию памяти Альфреда Нобеля по экономике новаторские исследования экономического развития в приложении к проблемам развивающихся стран. Данная публикация представляет собой его нобелевскую лекцию; в ней автор подробно останавливается на различных вариантах решения проблем бедности в современной экономике. Лекция написана простым английским языком. Она находится в открытом доступе на официальном сайте.

"Most of the people in the world are poor, so if we knew the economics of being poor, we would know much of the economics that really matters. Most of the world's poor people earn their living from agriculture, so if we knew the economics of agriculture, we would know much of the economics of being poor.

Economists are no exception, for they too find it difficult to comprehend the preferences and scarcity constraints that determine the choices that poor people make. We all know that most of the world's people are poor, that they earn a pittance for their labor, that half and more of their meager income is spent on food, that they reside predominantly in low income countries and that most of them are earning their livelihood in agriculture. What many economists fail to understand is that poor people are no less concerned about improving their lot and that of their children than rich people are..."
