520    Portrait of the Poor examines poverty as a structural 
       problem caused by the way economic systems operate. It 
       poses a simple question: Why do poor people earn less? 
       Case studies in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa 
       Rica and Peru find the poor caught in a vicious circle. 
       They lack sufficient access to education, credit and other
       means to generate income, so they earn lower wages, which 
       in turn prevents them from accumulating the assets they 
       need to increase future income. The authors analyze the 
       ownership and use of income-generating assets, as well as 
       access to them. Where there are market imperfections, they
       propose policies to ease the constraints faced by the poor
       in accumulating the human, physical and social capital 
       they need to generate greater income.
