True, the government is doing his part. Only the citizens got to participate, which is not happening. But Guyana is improving, since the world cup is being kept here. Must say, the government is doing his best and a well great job.

I must disagree with that statement by Beverly89. This government is not doing enough as a matter of fact, my opinion is since the death of the late Forbes Burnham no other president of Guyana has been able to mange this country effectively. Where the poor is concern i would very much like to know what the government is doing to help the poor. As a matter of fact if any such thing has occured i could only mean Guyana as experience a miracle. afro

I agree with you Rovin Gordon that the late Forbes Burnham did a major and quite impressed job. But do you think that the President of Guyana is not doing a great job? Aren't we developing? I must say that yes, it was wrong that no object was being made by the President with VAT. Vat should never be agreed. It made the poor suffered but what choice do we have? I think the President is doing the best he could, and there is still room for improvement.

i honestly dont know much about the history of guyana's past governments and their contributions towards decreasing the poverty level in guyana but with keeping update with the ongoing situations in Guyana I can say I understand that the present government is doing an excellent job in certain situations but with others they simply do not give their best.

It is surely true that Guyana is developing, but it is also true that the government place their emphasis on only one aspect of Guyana's development(market economy). When a country is truely developing all aspect is taken care of. In Guyana's case the rich is getting richer and the poor poorer and if i should go so far as to talk about other aspect like our defense force, any one can answer this question. Do you think if Venezula decide they want to take peice of Guyana's land now we can stop them? Plus our education system is far from development since our teacher is under paid, most children can't afford a text book or go to lesson on a regular basis. These are just a few problems and what hurt me the most is that Guyana is a rich country in Minerals, Agriculture etc and the people of Guyana still have to go through these situation. For every situation something can be worked out, and if our Government is doing something or even has a plan he sure as hell ain't sharing is with the people who matters the most the Guyanese people. afro

The government isn't doin enough 2 help the poor citizens of this country.
For example some ppl on the east coast of demerara that lives @ the squattin area don't get water, or if some of them do get the water isn't as pure as the ones we've got here. The government spent so much money installin new meters on the ECD, which we had already got meters now they want newer ones 2 be installed n now we've got 2 pay a monthly rate instead of the yearly fixed rate. I wonda where all this money goin confused

Some years ago, the PPP/C Government waged war on poverty. And this war has been sustained. Recently, the Government launched its public consultations on the Interim-Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (I-PRSP). The public consultations guarantee that the poor will not be excluded from inputting subsequent poverty reduction policies, programs, and projects. The I-PRSP represents an attempt to transform the existing social and economic arrangements of Guyana, resulting in poverty reduction. The I-PRSP also suggests that Government recognizes the connection between inequality and poverty.

Through a national poverty strategy incorporated in the I-PRSP, the Government will sustain an improved macroeconomic, trade and investment environment; enhance the business sector; improve the social services, as health, education, water and sanitation, housing, and safety nets; maintain and diversify economic infrastructures; and execute special programs in areas where there is a high incidence of poverty.

In building on the I-PRSP, the Guyana Government in its 2001 Budget has allocated about $2 billion for poverty reduction programs. These include SIMAP - $1.1 billion; the Poverty Program - $500 million; the Poor Rural Communities Program - $188.4 million; the Basic Needs Trust Fund Program - $100 million; and the Presidentís Youth Choice Initiative - $240 million. Clearly, these budgetary allocations are a strong testimony of the Governmentís firm commitment to reducing poverty.

Although many attempts at poverty reduction have tackled the issues of adequacy, employment, and work incentives, there has been limited success with achieving stable, long-term, full employment in the private economy or where capitalism is the economic system of production.

Some have even suggested that the solution to reducing poverty is economic growth and full employment. But as Hurst (1998) points out, this can only mean higher self-sufficiency for all. But this level of self-sufficiency is achievable only at the cost of reducing economic inequality. Capitalism as an economic system of production, historically, has not measured up to the task of combating economic inequality. In fact, it creates greater economic inequality. That being the case, therefore, capitalism as manifested through the private economy, does not have the full capacity to drive poverty-reduction programs. The search for other economic systems to assist capitalism in reducing poverty, therefore, will continue.
