Abstract. At last, it is now recognized that mass poverty is not only a humanitarian a problem but also a social and economic one. The principal way of lowering mass poverty is to secure the employment. To combat poverty it is necessary to carry out complex reforms, which in the backward economies can only be accomplished “from the above”, namely by the governments. The state, however, has both to ensure stabilization and to push ahead the modernization projects. This makes it difficult to guarantee a balanced development. Thus, lack of stability remains a permanent feature of non-Western nations.
