Social science study on poverty in Georgia

A social science study from the nation of Georgia finds that 12% of households still live under the poverty line. While poorer households limit their consumption of food and luxury items more than everyone else, all income groups, including the affluent, are more likely to limit beef and chocolate above all other foods. More so than other foods like dairy and vegetables, these foods are seen by locals to have cheaper substitutes.

An usueful case study of how social science can show the nuances of how social forces shape economic behaviour.
