Measuring Changes in Poverty: A Methodological Case Study of Indonesia during an Adjustment Period

Article 1, found by Kim

This article describes two techniques which can measure poverty in a country, in this case Indonesia, and compares levels of poverty before and after policy changes. I didn’t read to whole article completely, it’s too long, but I did found the article quite interesting, because I never really thought of methods for measuring poverty in countries. I just never occurred to me that changes in policy have such a huge effect on the people who live in poverty. I know the article contains a lot of mathematics and diagrams, but sometimes I find it necessary to also read about the, so called, boring aspects of something you like.
