Chamber of Commerce of the United States, Washington, DC.
Rural Poverty is conceived in this report not as a geographically isolated phenomenon, but rather as a series of interrelated human, social, and economic problems with national scope. Separate sections of the report deal specifically with understanding rural and regional poverty, reclaiming human resources, abandoning outdated policies, and solving problems related to the American Indian. Behaviorally stated recommendations are included in each section of the report to suggest procedures to alleviate problems as they are identified. A series of study papers is also presented in the report, each paper having relevance to some aspect of rural poverty in different regions of the country. Topics of discussion in these study papers include: (1) Rural Poverty in the Southeast; (2) Poverty in Hired Farm Work Force; (3) The Regional Aspects of Poverty; and (4) Poverty Among American Farmers.
