This chapter evaluates the impact of the 1997 economic crisis on the poor people in Indonesia. The analysis reveals that price increases have affected the cost of living of poor households disproportionally; the effects differ in urban and rural households. This chapter argues that that the notion that the very poor are so poor as to be insulated from international shocks is simply wrong because it was the poor in the Indonesian case that appear to be the most vulnerable.
