Poverty is one of the longest-standing problems facing governments and populations throughout the world. Whether in prosperous times or during depressions, whether in agricultural, industrial or post-industrial societies, no matter how it is measured and despite anti-poverty programmes and aid to the poor, poverty continues. This work focuses on ten different countries - USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, Malta, the Netherlands, Philippines and Zimbabwe - and the socio-economic and historical context within which poverty exists, the extent and nature of poverty, the causes of poverty, and measures that have been taken to mitigate poverty.
