Bucur, Benjamin, "Understanding Romania's Poverty: A Historical Overview of Economics and Politics and Their Implications on Poverty Today" (2023). Senior Honors Theses. 1316.
Romania is a country with a high-income economy that is experiencing considerable growth following its economic reforms of earlier decades. With growth, tendencies for an unequal society are prevalent. Therefore, appropriate economic policies that are specifically targeted toward bottlenecks are essential. This thesis seeks to outline the major types of poverty in Romania while also offering actionable entrepreneurial and educational insights that practically combat poverty at its roots.
