AbstractWays in which poverty can be reduced in both countries and regions through business, entrepreneurship, and government has been a hot issue for researchers and policymakers in recent years. In general, economic growth has allowed large numbers of people to move out of poverty. However, it is increasingly clear that while some countries and regions in Asia, Africa, and South America have seen dramatic improvement in the overall rates of poverty, there are other places with large numbers of people still in poverty. For example, India has over 400 million people, China still has tens of millions of very poor, and many other parts of the world still face extreme poverty. The large number of the severely poor people has increasingly been recognized as an issue for both governments and entrepreneurs. Governments can play an important role in helping these poor people by non-profit organizations and others that help to seed business among the poor. However, businesses increasingly also see the large number of people in severe poverty not only an issue for social concern, but also as a potentially large untapped market of consumers for goods and services.
