He argues that this is because restructuring an entire economy from the top down is almost always bound to fail. This is because these methods often lack feedback from the people of poor nations who are actually suffering. According to Easterly, one of the main reasons foreign aid does not efficiently reach those in need is because the organizations’ top down method does not get past the corrupt governments of these poor nations. To fix this, he argues that aid should be given by a more pragmatic, bottom up approach, going directly to those in need. Easterly also says that aid should be given in a more scientific way, using statistical testing to discern which forms of aid work best.
The presence of poor governance structures and inequalities in access and distribution of economic resources, have made some groups of the population to have better opportunities than others. This inevitably alters power relations and in turn leads to the persistence of poverty amongst certain groups with very serious consequences for social
Therefore, there is a connection between poverty and crime. The more the number of people living in poverty, the higher the crime rate, which is obviously bad from a social perspective because it compromises safety and security in the region/country. Furthermore, many people living in poverty are homeless, which forces them to live on the streets, showing the failure of the state to adequately provide for them. 8. LEDC’s point of view It is easy to see why countries with large proportions of their populations living in poverty are interested to reduce that number, both for the good of their people as well as the future development of the country.
The recent literature recognises and encapsulates the fundamentals of multiple deprivations along with economic shortfall. One of the major reasons for severe poverty is multiple deprivation, wherein people lack access to multiple resources coupled with an economic shortfall (Radhakrishna and Ravi,2004). Multiple deprivations include lack of land, credit, education, health, longevity and water along with economic and nutritional support. Being deprived of these resources pushes poor people into a deeper state of impoverishment, which when coupled with financial and health shocks, further aggravates the situation (Shepherd, 2007). The presence of a ‘positive economic shock’ and ‘safety nets’ in the society is imperative to remove chronically people from the adverse state and prevent them from being pushed back into severe
In order to achieve a successful leadership, a leader should possess certain essential skills. People with high affiliation needs work well with others and may be motivated by the interaction (McClleland, 1975). On the other hand, a leader has a passion to his/her work leading in the society. To be able to motivate, a leader must inspire people to respond more openly in times of problems. Leadership is the one who inspires
Inequality is as bad for the rich as it is for the poor. Society is poorer as inequality becomes greater. (Friedman, 2011) The impacts of inequality shows up in poorer health, lower educational attainment, higher crime rates, lower spending of social capital, lower cooperation with and trust of government. (Friedman, 2011) On the other hand, inequality can also mean uneven distribution of wealth, which causes the poor to become even poorer. Poverty, hunger, homelessness, illiteracy, preventable disease, polluted air and water, and most of the other ills that beset humanity, have the same root cause: the inequitable distribution of planet’s wealth and resources.
Furthermore, poverty causes problems to people psychologically. The obvious side of poverty and health is of course, that poverty doesn’t allow you to be healthy physically. But there is more to this; it also changes the way you think. A person living under depression and stress could eventually, do thoughtless actions like killing
To gain community approval, mobilizing the existing resources and skills of the people in need becomes imperative. This means directly involving the people of the community in its rebuilding. This is not solely to gain their approval, but also because low income populations can play a vital role in the development of their families and societies. An example to support this fact can be Selco
