In 1997, Mexico launched a new incentive-based poverty reduction program to enhance the human capital of those living in extreme poverty.

If your only going to read one book this year. This may be the one to read.
A thought out anti-poverty program that has an end in view, that address,
most issues, and pays for it's self. Well worth your time to read, it's a short book 156 pages.

Levy was the Mexican minister who ran a vital government program, Progress Opportunities. It tackled the endemic problem of poverty in Mexico. Unsurprisingly, Levy's tone is quite upbeat. What else is he likely to say? Think perhaps of books just out by candidates for the US Presidency.

But Levy's book does have a lot of substance. It will never be a best seller. Let's make that clear. It is a dry read, of the ilk that thrills economists. Replete with tables of statistics and much data analysis. To give the man his due, the quantitative results are impressive. Since 97, Mexico has made significant headway in reducing longstanding poverty.

To Levy's credit, he does not claim the job is done. The book does offer the hope that finally, Mexico can start of break out of a cycle of poverty that has afflicted generations of its people.
