Public intervention and poverty alleviation: a study of the declining incidence of rural poverty in Kerala, India



Public intervention and poverty alleviation: a study of the declining incidence of rural poverty in Kerala, India



Development and Change 26(4): 701-727



In the context of the continuing and lively debate on the estimates, trends and determinants of rural poverty in India, the paper examines the sharp decline, since the late 1970s, in the incidence of rural poverty in the state of Kerala, India, well known for its record of social development. It is argued that, given the slow rate of growth of the Kerala economy in general and agriculture in particular since the mid-1970s, the 'trickle down' theory cannot explain the decline in poverty.
