As a starting point, I would like to show that uninsured economic risks for poor people or low-income countries tend to create poverty traps, which in turn severely limit development prospects, both at the micro and macro levels. Of course, it is generally possible to mitigate these risks. However, even though risks can be reduced, risk mitigation itself has a cost and may reduce long-run income. Then, I would like to show that both through poverty traps and the negative effects of risk mitigation, insecurity tends to increase poverty and inequality.

In low-income countries, crisis volatility usually constitutes the core of volatility. While it represented only 12 percent of total volatility in a big country like India in 1960–2000—meaning that the country suffered relatively few big crises—it amounted to 46 percent in Nicaragua during the same period. What explains such volatility? We tend to associate volatility with exogenous shocks such as terms of trade shocks, commodity price fluctuations, natural disasters such as drought or hurricanes, and so forth.
