???????????Ethiopia poverty reduction

The above is from World Bank source which is conventional (income based) method of poverty analysis

Ethiopia's Per capita income trend, relative to  Sub-Saharan Afr 001Ethiopia

According to the Economist’s latest (25 June 2015) multidimensional poverty analysis, 9 countries that have registered 80% and above  of their population as multidimensionally poor are all in Africa: Ethiopia, Somalia, Burundi, South Sudan, Guinea, Niger, Burkina Faso  and Chad. 

population in multidimensional poverty

MOST measures of poverty just focus on income. About 1 billion people live on less than $1.25 a day. But a new report from Oxford University looks at poverty levels in 101 developing countries, covering 5.2 billion people, or 75% of the world’s population. The report understands poverty in a different way from how economists usually do.

The economists measure “multidimensional poverty”. This complements measures based on income and reflects the many different problems people can face all at the same time. These include bad health and a lack of education. In all, they identify ten indicators; if people are deprived in at least one-third them, they are multidimensionally poor. The authors estimate that 1.6 billion people fit this description.

In some countries the difference between the conventional and unconventional measures is stark. In Mexico, Pakistan and Egypt, for instance, there are twice as many multidimensionally poor as there are conventionally poor. –

Great observation.
‘Here I saw people living on 1 dollar per day. And they are not beggars. They work and earn their 20-25 birr (around 1 $) per day and they pay 40% taxes to the government.’
……………………………………………
There are also these empty concrete and glass buildings in the capital, built out of prestige while people can’t afford renting the space there. So it is Ethiopia, African country without African fun and joy. The most un-African of all South Saharan African countries.
Just several decades ago they had their emperor and their Eritrea. Haile Selassie lived in a luxury and denied the reality of famine. There were no starving people in his country and live skeletons walking the streets. The emperor was old. The Lion was no longer the lion. He used to be a hero, when his country was liberated from Italian occupation. But not when he was too old to hold power. Rumors say that he was killed in his sleep.
In 1974 the Revolution took place and the Dergue military committee seized the power. Many people were tormented and killed. In mid 80th people were starving again. In 1991 communists were replaced by so called democrats, but you can still buy dollars only on the black market in Ethiopia.

The dynasty claiming its descent from the King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba had thus ceased to exist.

Colonialism of Mind: Deterrent of Social Transformation

 By Begna F. Dugassa, Sociology Mind 2011. Vol.1, No.2, 55-64 Copyright © 2011 SciRes

ABSTRACT

An educational system and its curricula are shaped by the culture and epistemology in which it is embedded. It is influenced by the societal knowledge, but it also instrumental in shaping the knowledge of the society. Culture influences learning style. Based on cultural diversities and social needs, different societies have distinct curricula. As such, Oromo students ought to be taught now to interrogate the colonial epistemology and ideology as well schooled in the ways of dismantling the hegemony. However, in many cases, they are simply taught to reproduce the knowledge, culture, power structure, thinking and the worldview of colonizers. This means that education, which is supposed to be about critical inquiry and social transformation has been used to indoctrinate or brainwash some students. Such colonial educational curricula have invalidated the knowledge of indigenous Oromo people and compromised their needs. This type of education system, instead of empowering the students and their society, has incapacitated them. For the Oromo people, such curricula have distorted their history, image, identity, and damaged their social fabric. In this paper I argue that, colonial knowledge and education system is not in a position to bring about social transformation among Oromo people; on the contrary it disrupts their peace (nagaa), health (fayya) and (tasgabii) social order.
