first_img18 March 2015Poverty in a democratic South Africa declined significantly over the 18 years from 1993 to 2010, according to Prof Haroon Bhorat of the Development Policy Research Unit in the University of Cape Town.In a research paper for the Africa Growth Initiative of the Brookings Institution, the American think tank, Bhorat and his colleagues, Ben Stanwix and Derek Yu, found that this held true for virtually all households, regardless of the gender or race of the household head, and whether it was in a rural or urban area.The paper was released on 17 March, and is the 18th in the Africa Growth Initiative Working Paper Series. The series, according to Brookings, “covers a broad range of economic and development challenges facing Africa and provides high-quality, African-led research on solutions that promote the continent’s growth and prosperity”.Bhorat’s paper examined the changing nature of non-income welfare in post- apartheid South Africa, adding to other studies on poverty, which have focused predominantly on changes in income welfare as the most important marker of economic progress.“Our paper is also an extension of the few studies that focus on non-income welfare, which have generally not addressed the role of private assets in the welfare calculation. We include public and private assets as well as educational attainment in our [principal components analysis] approach to derive a non-income welfare index,” the researchers wrote in the conclusion to their paper.Non-income poverty declinesPoverty declines were almost exclusively found for African-headed households, which constituted almost the entire population of households living in poverty in 1993. “We also found that poverty declines were relatively more rapid for female- headed households and in rural areas.”Over the 18 years, non-income poverty fell much more rapidly than income poverty, while the decreases in poverty “were relatively well targeted toward poor households, and it was shown that in terms of both income and non-income poverty, poorer households experienced the largest decreases in non-income poverty”.The results were encouraging, the researchers said, although they pointed out that the socio-economic situation at the end of apartheid must be kept in mind. At the time, the majority of the non-white population lived in extreme poverty, in both income and non-income terms. “The substantial progress that we observe has built on an exceptionally low base of initial non-income welfare, and the levels of poverty in South Africa, however one chooses to measure them, remain high.”A number of wide-ranging economic reforms were introduced in democratic South Africa aimed at macroeconomic stability, economic growth, job creation and poverty reduction. Provision of free basic services to previously disadvantaged people, such as water, electricity, sanitation and housing was a key policy objective, and socio- economic rights such as housing, water and education were included in the Constitution.Most studies into the changes in the welfare of South Africans since 1994 have looked at the private returns to economic growth, with the main focus on income- or expenditure-based measures of well-being.Money-metric measures“Studies focused on these money-metric measures find that income poverty worsened over the period between South Africa’s transition to democracy until about 2000 and 2001, and that since then a continuous but slow downward trend has been observed,” said Bhorat.Very few studies had examined well-being in terms of access to assets and services, yet this was an important component in understanding the extent to which economic growth in South Africa had been inclusive, or pro-poor.The World Bank defines poverty as pronounced deprivation in well-being. It comprises many dimensions, including low incomes and the inability to acquire the basic goods and services necessary for survival with dignity. Poverty also encompasses low levels of health and education, poor access to clean water and sanitation, inadequate physical security, lack of voice, and insufficient capacity and opportunity to better one’s life.Economic aspects of poverty focus on material needs, typically including the necessities of daily living, such as food, clothing, shelter, or safe drinking water. Poverty in this sense is a condition in which a person or community is lacking in the basic needs for a minimum standard of well-being and life, particularly as a result of a persistent lack of income.“While the existing literature reveals increased delivery of basic services by the government since 1994, there has been a fairly narrow focus on so-called public assets, such as the state’s provision of housing, water and electricity,” Bhorat and his colleagues wrote in their paper.“Most studies exclude information on private assets, such as whether a household has a stove, a refrigerator, a television set, a vehicle and so on. We believe that these are relevant indicators of economic welfare. In addition, most of the studies. do not address the contribution that increased access to education makes to overall well-being.”Using information on public and private assets, as well as on education, they created a welfare measure to investigate shifts in non-income poverty between 1993 and 2010.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

(AP Photo/David Zalubowski)DENVER — Nikola Jokic overcame suffocating double teams to become the fourth player in NBA history to record a triple-double in his playoff debut and the first since LeBron James in 2006.What did it mean to him?ADVERTISEMENT Philippine Arena Interchange inaugurated “Every time he put it down, there was somebody right there. They trapped him every time,” Malone said. “So, I think Nikola has a high IQ. He’s going to make the right play. Unfortunately, we didn’t make them pay for double-teaming enough.”The Nuggets made just 42 percent of their shots, 21 percent from 3-point range, and missed eight free throws while failing to score a single fast-break basket.“I think if we’re making shots, it becomes a lot harder to double-team him consistently,” Malone said. “They stayed with it because we couldn’t make a shot. So, that was the tough thing about it. But I love Nikola’s approach. I love his play-making. I love his passing.”The sellout crowd at the Pepsi Center, where the Nuggets went 34-7 for the best home record in the league, certainly wanted Jokic to take more shots. But even those calls quieted after Jokic shot an airball on a 3 at a crucial point in the fourth quarter.White stole the ball at midcourt from Jamal Murray with 1.3 seconds left after Aldridge sank a pair of free throws following his key defensive rebound of Murray’s errant shot that would have given the Nuggets the lead with seven seconds left.Game 2 is Tuesday night in Denver.Making their first playoff appearance in six years, the Nuggets trailed most of the night, but they trimmed a 12-point deficit to one in the final minute.They had the ball with 6.9 seconds left and needed a 3 even though they were just 6 for 28 from the arc. But they never got the chance to tie it because White, a second-year pro who moved into a bigger role when Dejounte Murray got hurt in the preseason, stripped Murray and drew the foul, then sank both shots.“He was spectacular,” Popovich said. “For somebody who got put in that position and to learn that position with a bunch of new players, it’s really remarkable what he’s done. Hopefully, he’ll continue to play that way because it’s going to be a long series.”Asked what adjustments he had in mind for Game 2, Malone said simply, “Make shots.” Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue LATEST STORIES “To be honest, nothing,” Jokic said.It also mattered little to the San Antonio Spurs, who beat the Denver Nuggets 101-96 in Game 1 of their Western Conference playoff series Saturday night.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsJokic’s accomplishment was rendered a footnote by LaMarcus Aldridge’s suffocating defense, DeMar DeRozen’s 18 points, Derrick White’s clinching steal in the closing seconds and all those wide-open shots that just didn’t fall for Denver.Although Jokic pulled down 14 rebounds and dished out 14 assists, he took just nine shots, made four, and was limited to 10 points, less than half his regular season scoring average of 20.1. DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew MOST READ SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles Spurs coach Gregg Popovich called it a wash because Aldridge wasn’t himself, either, going just 6 of 19 for 15 points.“We didn’t let Jokic play as he wanted and they didn’t let LaMarcus play as much as he wanted,” Popovich said. “It is important because they are both great players and they are going to continue to get a lot of attention throughout the series.”Aldridge said this is what everyone can expect this whole series, too.“Both bigs kind of never really got comfortable down there. When you have two bigs that are so big for your team, it’s going to be like that,” Aldridge said. “We did a good job of just trying to mix it up on him. They did the same thing on me.”Nuggets coach Michael Malone said he didn’t wish his All-Star had taken more shots.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

first_imgThe Australian Men’s Open team impressed on day one of the 2016 Trans Tasman Series, with a six touchdown win over New Zealand, 13-7. Both teams started strongly, with Scott Buckley and Reihana Soutar-Finch trading touchdowns in the opening exchanges to lock the game up at 1-all early. Rob Nakhla scored soon after for Australia, before Soutar-Finch hit back for his second touchdown of the game.Australia then went to another level, scoring four touchdowns in five minutes, with touchdowns to Buckley, Matt Prowse, Pete Norman and Lachlan Pierce, to take a 6-2 lead New Zealand hit back soon after through Ngarohi Black, and when Soutar-Finch scored his third touchdown of the half the home side were back within two touchdowns. The Australians went to the half-time break with a two touchdown lead, 6-4. Whatever Australian coach Tony Trad said to the team at half-time must have worked, with his side scoring five of the next six touchdowns to stamp their authority on the game. Captain Nick Good scored in the second minute, before Black scored his second of the match in the next set for the Kiwis.  Nakhla had his second not long after, before Daniel Barton, Ben Moylan and Shaun Francis scored to give Australia a handy 11-6 lead. New Zealand’s Connah Pamatatau was next to score, while Jordan Marshall-King replied one minute later to score his first Men’s Open touchdown against New Zealand. Shanan Tomuri put the Kiwis within five touchdowns, before Buckley continued his strong performance, scoring his hat trick with just minutes remaining. Australia proved too strong on day one with a 13-7 win and will be hopeful of a series win tomorrow when they play at 3.30pm (NZST). The victory gave the Australians three wins on day one following the Mixed and Women’s wins earlier in the day.FINAL SCORE: Australia 13 (Buckley 3, Nakhla 2, Prowse, Norman, Pierce, Good, Barton, Moylan, Francis, Marshall-King) defeated New Zealand 7 (Soutar-Finch 3, Black 2, Pamatatau, Tomuri).
