Q-Squared - Combining Qualitative and Quantitative Approaches  in Poverty Analysis (Paperback): Paul Shaffer Q-Squared - Combining Qualitative and Quantitative Approaches in Poverty Analysis (Paperback)
Paul Shaffer
R849 Discovery Miles 8 490 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This book examines the underlying assumptions and implications of how we conceptualise and investigate poverty. The empirical entry point for such inquiry is a series of research initiatives that have used mixed method, combined qualitative and quantitative, or Q-Squared ( Q(2)) approaches, to poverty analysis. The Q(2) literature highlights the vast range of analytical tools within the social sciences that may be used to understand and explain social phenomena, along with interesting research results. This literature serves as a lens to probe issues about knowledge claims made in poverty debates concerning who are the poor (identification analysis) and why they are poor (causal analysis). Implicitly or explicitly, questions are raised about the reasons for emphasising different dimensions of poverty and favouring different units of knowledge, the basis for distinguishing valid and invalid claims, the meaning of causation, and the nature of causal inference, and so forth. Q(2) provides an entry point to address foundational issues about assumptions underlying approaches to poverty, and applied issues about the strengths and limitations of different research methods and the ways they may be fruitfully combined. Together, the strands of this inquiry make a case for methodological pluralism on the grounds that knowledge is partial, empirical adjudication imperfect, social phenomena complex, and mixed methods add value for understanding and explanation. Ultimately, the goals of understanding and explanation are best served if research questions dictate the choice of methodological approach rather than the other way around.

From having Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones watch in amazement as Jesse's band, the Young Executives, covered the hit song ""Satisfaction,"" to helping arrange and then perform in Stephen Schwartz's hit Broadway show Godspell with the #1 single ""Day by Day,"" to being the premier artist for Faberge's Brut Records label that included Michael Franks and comedian Robert Klein, to recording an album with Academy Award winner Joe Renzetti (The Buddy Holly Story), Jesse had it all. But temptations, seduction and leveraged buyouts of major entertainment conglomerates left him out in the cold.

Immiserizing Growth - When Growth Fails the Poor (Hardcover): Paul Shaffer, Ravi Kanbur, Richard Sandbrook Immiserizing Growth - When Growth Fails the Poor (Hardcover)
Paul Shaffer, Ravi Kanbur, Richard Sandbrook
R2,042 Discovery Miles 20 420 Out of stock

Immiserizing growth occurs when growth fails to benefit, or harms, those at the bottom. It is not a new concept, appearing in some of the towering figures of the classical tradition of political economy including Malthus, Ricardo, and Marx. It is also not empirically insignificant, occurring in between 10% and 35% of cases. In spite of this, it has not received its due attention in the academic literature, dominated by the prevailing narrative that 'growth is good for the poor'. Immiserizing Growth: When Growth Fails the Poor challenges this view to arrive at a better understanding of when, why, and how growth fails the poor. Taking a diverse disciplinary perspective, Immiserizing Growth combines discussion of mechanisms of this troubling economic phenomenon with empirical data on trends in growth, poverty, and related welfare indicators. It draws on political economy, applied social anthropology, and development studies, including contributions from experts in these fields. A number of methodological approaches are represented including statistical analysis of household survey and cross-country data, detailed ethnographic work and case study analysis drawing on secondary data. Geographical coverage is wide including Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria, the People's Republic of China, Singapore, and South Korea, in addition to cross-country analysis. This volume is the first full-length treatment of immiserizing growth, and constitutes an important step in redirecting attention to this major challenge.
