ANTH 320 Notes 2/16/16 - Multiple choice questions mostly taken from slides o Ex. For Paul Farmer, the “neo-Luddite” trap is:  Rejecting considerations of cost-efficiency because of culture  Choosing older medicines for poor people in order to improve cost-effectiveness  Turning to theology instead of economics for structural violence o Disregard Sachs reading for exam! o Making/studying lists and titles from lectures will help for multiple choice - Jeffrey Sachs: development economist o Creator of “shock therapies” in Bolivia and Eastern Europe  Fiscal reforms to protect national currency and credit  Reduce government spending o Researched nation-specific patterns of growth  Used aid to jump start economics of poorest nations/regions  Millennium Villages project o Idea of holistic approach based on Millennium Development Goals  start with basic needs (infrastructure, treat diseases, sanitation)  end with business development to alleviate poverty trap - Rostow views development as stages - Sachs views development as ladder o Class stratification, communities climb ladder into higher standard of living o Look into which nations aren’t climbing and why o Global comparison of growth rates  Different way to analyze each nation depending on specific characteristics - Poverty trap: poverty itself caused economic stagnation because all labor/resources/income goes to mere survival (nothing left to be invested in future) o Economic condition predicts even worse income in future - Causes of poverty traps: o Demographics: large family  less resources per person o Intense farming  soil degradation: decrease of assets, decreased productivity  Land does not produce same amount for next generation o Life devoted to cash-basis (simplified lifestyle)  Make same amount on paper, but quality decreases  Less nutritional diet, for example - Justification to act against poverty traps: o Empirical evidence: some nations experience growth and others do not (are trapped) o Logical reasoning: no saving or means of growth because income only supports survival and slow decrease in capital  Self-generating growth impossible o Moral necessity: poor work hard and aren’t doing anything wrong, but won’t ever be able to escape situation that way - New focus on social justice/equality instead of just growth o 1970’s had similar ideas about development/growth of poor  Priority to human needs instead of only growth o Development from state-centered approach to grassroots - Examples of poverty traps o Salad growers in Spain: migrant workers- many from Africa  Make less than minimum wage  Barely able to afford living in terrible conditions o Congo-Sapeurs: man dresses well, spends excess income on clothing, purchased expensive clothes while migrants in Paris  Bought pair of shoes instead of land - Basic needs: o Tendency to assume materialistic hierarchy and equate survival to physical survival o Important to recognize that different communities have different values and priorities - Humanity more important than biological needs o Suggested idea of development: art/faith/decency  investment savings  basic needs
