World Press Review Peru and Privatization: 'Just Say No': Toledo's Broken Promises: "According to the National Household Survey on living conditions and poverty carried out last year by the National Statistics and Information Institute (INEI), 24.4 percent of Peruvians live in extreme poverty, surviving on less than $1 a day. The survey found that poverty increased by 1.4 percent between 2000 and last year and by 7.1 percent since 1997, while extreme poverty rose by 4.5 percent in the last two years." The figures speak for themselves. This is a reprint of an article that appeared in Latinamerica Press last month.
