Abstract

In this article we explore the avenue to alleviate pervasive poverty in a small, underdeveloped, and labour abundant dualistic economy. We take the case of Nepal, analyze its income expenditure flows and compare its macroeconomic structure with post-war Korean economy. We conclude that in the given agrarian nature and land distribution pattern in Nepal, the existing flow mechanism can hardly work in favour of the poor. Consequently, raising the labour productivity is the effective strategy left to reduce poverty in Nepal. This effort is urgent as the existing trend of sectoral labour productivities in Nepal are discouraging, which is even far behind the post-war South Korean performance.
