In Pakistan life expectancy birth rate is 65 years. As the result of poverty population in slums growing rapidly. People keep on producing children so that they can make them work and earn money to satisfy their basic needs like hunger, shelter etc. Poverty is the result of increased population. As population is increased the per capita income of the people decreased.
Rising income inequality is considered as a global issue. Over the last ten years, median household income has declined in many advanced economies that resulting median household easily trapped in the risk of falling into poverty. Based on the research, we found that the average income of the richest 10% of the population is higher nine times higher than that of the poorest 10%. After 20 years, some countries have developed the advanced technology to improve the productivity of 30% in industries sector. However, there would also 50% worker will encounter the risk of displaced.
Despite China’ rise of GDP per capita it did badly in equality measures. China’s Gina Coefficient (inequality indicator) in 1983 reached 28% which views less inequality like some Western countries like Germany (28%) and was described as an egalitarian society. However, after 1983 the national inequality increased massively in both urban and rural regions, the inequality gap between both was widened to reach about 45% in 2001. This percentage declares that China is one of the most unequal Asian countries as Thailand and Philippines. Unsurprisingly, China’s inequality percentage is transcendent to United State’s inequality percentage of 40%.
A recession mostly goes for six to 18 months. At this period financing costs tumbles to animate the economy by offering shoddy rates to obtain cash. The significant cause of recession is inflation. Inflation is the ascent in the prices of goods and services in a timeframe. The higher the rate of inflation, the smaller the percentage of goods and services that can be purchased with the same amount of money.
POVERTY IN THE COUNTRY About a third of the country’s population lives on less than 1.25USD per day. The GINI index keeps rising slowly over the years, indicating that the inequality in the distribution of wealth in the country is increasing, currently hovering a little close to 33.9. Poverty is considered the greatest threat to peace in the world, and eradication of poverty should be a national goal as important as the eradication of illiteracy. Due to abject poverty, women are exploited as domestic helps and wives whose incomes are usurped by the man of the house. Additionally, sex slaves are a direct outcome of poverty, as unearthed by Davinder Kumar:- Andhra Pradesh accounts for nearly half of all sex trafficking cases in India, the majority involving adolescent girls.
Overall, while the poverty level might have declined due to faster growth in consumer spending, inequality at the same time has been widening. In process of analysing the interclass inequality it is seen that there is a direct relationship between the size classes and the percentage of that class in the total MPCE. The interclass disparity has significantly increased in the urban areas as compared to the rural areas. It could be understood that consumption class is the best indicator as it is reflection of the monthly income of the household and the decile class is a surrogate of the income
In the urban population, IMRs in the five lowest infant mortality states have decreased faster than in five highest infant mortality states, resultantly inter-state inequality in urban infant mortality has increased. However in states with highest infant mortality, between 1981-83, has resulted in a decrease in the inter-state inequality. The median decrease in total infant mortality rate in states having lowest and the highest infant mortality in 1981-83 was 39.92 per cent and 54.16 per cent respectively. Similarly, the median decrease in rural infant mortality rate in states with lowest rural infant mortality and in states with highest infant mortality in 1981-83 was 39.96 and 54.73 per cent respectively; the corresponding figures for the urban infant mortality rate being 46.73 and 41.56 per cent respectively (Chaurasia, 2005). Kerala in India has the lowest infant mortality rates and recorded IMR of 7 against the national average of 34 in 2013(Indian Academy of
Technology has decreased the costs of transportation, improved automation, and communication expressively in since the past four years in this globalization. When new markets come with new opportunities in some countries rich and poor alike was growth or increase and more than hundreds of the millions of people have been raised out of inefficiency. However, income imbalanced has also increase, probably reflecting the fact that growth has been complemented by skill-biased technological. Furthermore, one of the cause income inequality is technological change day by day. According to Stepten Hawking, warns that great technological advances can leave most people "miserably poor."
Poverty and the Working Poor “When the poor or newly poor are asked to define poverty, however, they talk not only about what’s in the wallet but what’s in the mind or the heart” (Shipler 10). The United States of America is a place which has an enormous population filled with foreigners and immigrants. Many enter America to get a better job, a fresh start, and to live the American Dream. In the 21st century, the gap between the rich and the poor has greatly widened even though America’s economy has skyrocketed as the years go by. Poverty has been a major issue due to various occasions but people who are in the middle and higher classes do not know the hardships these poor workers go through just so that they could have a chance to own valuables.
1 billion out of 2.2 billion children in the world are in poverty (Shah). That’s every second child. Shah states that one in four people live without electricity. People living in poverty have less access to education and are more likely to commit crime, and their children are less likely to be successful as adults. This creates low social mobility and poor health standards, which lead to more social spending and a financial strain on the economy.
