Cultural Theories of Poverty -- Research Starters Sociology

By: Auerbach, Michael P.;

2009 / EBSCO


There are a wide range of factors that can create poverty in a given society, and such contributors are not limited to the political or economic arenas. There are sociological forces at work, many of which may have cultural underpinnings. This paper explores many of these cultural factors within the broader context of the causes of poverty. In doing so, the reader will glean a more comprehensive understanding of the multifarious elements that foster and maintain poverty in the post-industrial international community.
