The Approaches to Narrowing Urban-Rural Income Gap-From the Perspective of Rural Social Security

From the situations about the incomes and life quality of the urban and rural residents, the thesis briefly introduces the status quo of the urban-rural income gap and explores the impact of the income gap on social economy: firstly, it hampers economic development; secondly, it is detrimental to the social development. Then the thesis analyzes the role of a sound social security in narrowing urban-rural income gap: at first, it broadens the institutional environment of improving the agricultural efficiency; secondly, it eliminates the uncertainties influencing the farmers’ income; thirdly, it improves the farmers’ capacity to increase income; at last, it enhances the farmers’ consciousness of wealth. Next the thesis inquires into the problems existing in the system of rural social security: the first problem is more obviously fragmented system; the second is inadequate security projects and narrower coverage; the third is an obvious lack of equality in urban and rural security; the fourth is even less sound management system; the last is the lagging of legislation. Afterwards the thesis proposes the countermeasures and suggestions to improve the system of rural social security and narrow urban-rural income gap: firstly, to integrate the social security system in rural areas; secondly, to perfect security projects and enhance the security system; thirdly, to integrate the administrative management of social security; at last, to enforce the legal system.
