Jocelyn Spencer Geog 370 Fall 2019 Dr. Mohamed B. Ibrahim Mid-term (2) Why Optimism faded away by the end of the 1970s? Give examples. The 1970s marked the UNDP’s second decade in attempting to develop third world countries. Following their first attempt in the 1960s, poverty rates and an unequal distribution amongst developing countries had increased. In India, the percentage of the population in poverty actually increased marginally from 53% in 1970. With mass poverty, the economic development growth rate went from 4.5% in 1961 to 4% in 1976. Thus was still unattainable. (Ahluwalia, 2009) Development planners sought an alternative path to development, targeting the poorest sector of the society with “Anti-poverty programs”. One program targeting the redistribution of equity. This means there is a heavy concentration on increasing production and income and growth on those parts of an economy with disproportionate numbers of poor people.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
