Possible dissonance between income and achievements of quality of life is noted. Then two alternatives for removing precarious living conditions are explored: growth‐mediated security and support‐led security, with illustrations from the experiences of various countries. The connection between these alternatives is studied. The strategy of growth‐mediated security is distinguished from that of aimless opulence with examples from the experiences of Kuwait and South Korea. The last part is dedicated to the effectiveness of support‐led security strategies.

Keywords:   achievements, equivalent growth, growth‐mediated security, income, Kuwait, persistent undernutrition, public action, South Korea, support‐led security, unaimed opulence
