Psychonomics and Poverty: Towards Governance and a Civil Society

Synopsis

In Psychonomics and Poverty: Towards Governance and a Civil Society, Ramesh Deosaran describes a novel, multidisciplinary approach to the study of poverty. He uses what he terms "photosociology" as a tool for painstaking research, and he presents "profiles of poverty" which effectively match the stark faces of the poor to statistical data.
