The Impact Of Poverty Level On Economic Development Of South Kalimantan Province

M. Ramadhan


Regional autonomy is a solution to educate the region to be more independent in the economy which in the end can develop the regional economy and the national economy. High-quality economic growth is economic growth that can encourage industrialization, can create the widest possible employment opportunities, and can improve people's incomes to reduce poverty levels. Reducing the number of poor people certainly requires increased economic growth and an even distribution of income. Rapid economic growth that is not balanced with equity will lead to inequality between regions. Several kinds of gaps often hinder a society in its efforts to achieve prosperity, namely: (1) regional disparities, (2) inter-sectoral disparities, 3) inequality in the distribution of people's income.
