Out of Poverty

What Works When Traditional Approaches Fail


Paul Polak explodes the “Three Great Poverty Eradication Myths” and tells how he and the organization he founded, International Development Enterprises, developed an approach that has succeeded in lifting millions out of poverty. Polak tells fascinating and moving stories about the people he and IDE have helped, especially Krishna Bahadur Thapa, a Nepali farmer who went from barely surviving to becoming solidly upper middle class.
