Attitudes to Chronic Poverty in the 'Global Village'

Armando Barrientos, Daniel Neff

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper explores attitudes to chronic poverty in a cross-section of developed and developing countries contributing data to the World Values Survey Wave Three (1994-1998). The analysis finds a consistent belief among a majority of respondents that poverty is persistent. The paper also explores the factors influencing public attitudes to chronic poverty, and finds that interests, position, knowledge, and shared values relating to social justice, are important. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
