1984 Synthesis Essay Poverty negatively influences how the minds of people work in the world. The fact that poverty exists itself, obstructs people from changing their circumstances in what is known as “the cycle of poverty.” The lower class is incredibly disadvantaged in that it lacks the necessary social and economic resources needed to increase chances of social mobility.

When this happens, the accumulated revenue falls which reduces the country 's GDP. As minimum wage laws push up the costs of hiring labour, businesses prefer moving their headquarters and operations to countries where minimum wage laws are less strict or don’t exist at all.
