Networks, Group Identity and Poverty
In the past decades, the economic analysis of social networks and groups has rapidly developed. This article discusses a few mechanisms through which social networks and groups affect poverty and social and economic inequality. Social networks and groups can both keep people in poverty or be tools for the emancipation of the poor. An efficient poverty reducing policy should account for these mechanisms or even employ them for the greater good.
