Self-Employment Training Programs for the Poor

By Steven Balkin

Abstract

 As a strategy to help law income people create their awn jobs, numerous training programs have been developed to assist the poor to start a small business. This effort is becoming widespread in both the U.S. and Europe. While there seems to be a consensus of what a self-employment training program should contain, the appropriateness of the typical program, for low income people with severe educational deficiencies, is questioned. A typology for differentiating self-employment training programs  is generated and their distribution is described from a survey of self-employment training programs for low income people  in the United  States.
