An Inquiry into Well-Being and Destitution

How should economic and social theory accommodate empirical facts about physical destitution, and how should governments respond to famines and hunger? This interdisciplinary book focuses on these and other questions about physical well-being. Partha Dasgupta begins his approach from the perspective of development economics. He then broadens his discussion to include philosophical work and empirical data on resource allocation, nutrition science, and anthropology. Comprehensive in its coverage of poverty, its causes, and remedies, this seminal work is essential to scholars and professionals in moral and political philosophy, anthropology, nutrition science, economic theory, and welfare economics.
