Nematollah Mousavi * , Farzaneh Taheri
Abstract:   (21733 Views)
The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of Globalization on poverty indices and welfare of income deciles throughout the rural and urban households. First, the impact of Globalization index on the price of bread and grains is estimated and then the impact of the increase in the said index is examined by the analysis of price changes on the expenditures on bread and grains among a sample of selected rural and urban households. Moreover, the effect of the change in expenditures on the three indices of poverty, i.e., headcount, poverty gap, and poverty severity in urban and rural areas are analyzed. It is shown that the growth in Globalization has decreased the poverty indices particularly among the urban households. It is also shown that the growth in Globalization has lowered expenditures or equivalently has increased the real income through the reduction in the price of consumer commodities and this reduction is more pronounced among the lower income deciles as compared with higher deciles. As a whole, the results indicate that the benefits accrue to urban households resulting from Globalization are higher than that of rural households.
