EOP follows a (hopefully) clear logical path from cover to cover. Some readers may not want to follow that path. Here is a guide for some (stylized) specialized readers.
Type of reader
|You want an introduction to the economics of poverty. You either know economics to intermediate level or you don’t feel the need for a deeper understanding.||Read the text, largely (or selectively) ignoring the boxes.|
|As above, but you are mainly interested in policy.||As above, but you can safely skip Part 2.|
|You want to learn economics but with a focus on the more “micro” side of poverty analysis, especially measurement and evaluation.||Parts 1 and 2 and Chapter 10 in Part 3 (including boxes).|
|As above, but you only want to learn the “macro” side of poverty analysis.||Parts 1 and 3 (including boxes), but you can skip Chapter 10.|
