In this study I argue that the state must help foster the conditions for the perpetuation of development by addressing more than pure economic growth. As demonstrated in this project, basic needs attainment is a function of social and political structures, as well as state commitment to the well-being of its people and equality of access to educational opportunities to end generational poverty. Efforts to promote growth are insufficient to address the root causes of poverty.
