Some basic welfare measures for combating poverty: lessons from a formerly poor country
MetadataShow full item record
Poverty alleviation is mainly about redistribution of economic, social and political resources, and all forms of redistribution carry a built-in conflict potential.

Some of these means are discussed through a presentation of the historical development of Norway from a poverty ridden country to a wealthy country where redistributive measures dominate the economic and social life of a modern welfare state.
