Poverty Traps–the end?

One of the first chapters we read in Poor Economics this year was about poverty traps. More has been published recently about this phenomenon and in particular, this blog post talks about how the end of poverty traps–or rather the end of a discussion of structural inequality as a problem that is solvable by only the aid community–might lead to an end to aid as we know it. It’s an interesting read and I think a good way to think about wrapping up the semester.
