Bessie (Mrs. John) Van Vorst and her sister-in-law Marie Van Vorst were both from New York's privileged class at the turn of the 20th century.

Why There Are Recessions And Poverty Amid Plenty- And What To Do About It! One of the world’s best-selling books on political economy edited and abridged for modern readers. Many economists and politicians foster the illusion that great fortunes and poverty stem from the presence or absence of individual skill and risk-taking.

Poverty reduction remains a major development challenge in much of Asia and the Pacific. Historically, technology has played a central role in raising living standards across the region, including those of the poor. The Green Revolution and various innovations of modern medicine and public health have been instrumental in improving nutrition, health, and livelihoods of millions of poor people.

In Bolivia more rural people live below the poverty line than in any other country in the world. Five hundred years after the arrival of the Spanish conquistadores, the country's rich natural resources are still controlled and exploited by a privileged minority, while the indigenous majority struggle to subsist on the poorest soils, or migrate to swell the teeming cities. Strangers in their own land for centuries, the indigenous people of Bolivia are now claiming the right to be heard and to be included in the national political process.Marcela Lopez Levy visited Bolivia to learn from miners,
