Summary
About this Podcast: What do we mean when we talk about 'poverty'? Can poverty be measured simply through low wages, or are there a host of issues which accompany this lack of money? Economist Sabina Alkire has worked on crafting a measure of poverty which includes multiple variables. Alongside fellow economist James Foster, Alkire has developed what is known as the Alkire-Foster Method for determining level of poverty. In this podcast Alkire, director of the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative, explains the need to have a consistent and reputable means of measuring poverty over time. This has usually entailed a monetary measurement, either income or consumption. Alkire has favoured a 'more three-dimensional account' of poverty. "I'm not at all against income poverty level measures or consumption poverty measures, but it doesn't tell the whole story," Alkire explains. "A person is also poor if they're malnourished, and if their house is decaying and they don't have a job and they're not educated or their children are not attending school or if they're victims of violence." The Alkire-Foster Method has been used to construct the Global Multidimensional Poverty Index. This index does not include income but does look at living standards across 10 dimensions. If someone is considered 'deprived' in more than a third of those 10 dimensions, they are officially identified as poor. Alkire goes on to explain that knowing people's real situations is important in a policy context. A multidimensional measurement of poverty is able to become an 'official permanent statistic' that will survive changes in government. At a national level, multidimensional poverty indices have proven their worth with state level governors in Mexico competing through poverty alleviation efforts.--
