(poverties.org, 2011) In my opinion, I think poverty can not be eradicated because there are forty percent of people who are at poverty level, which means 2.8 billion people. In addition, it is difficult to eradicate poverty since we have so many corrupt officials when the governments give the funds to the poor people, those officials will take the money from the funds to do dishonest or illegal things with it. Poverty can not be eradicated unless people educate their children offering them a better life. For example, if a poor family does not send their children to school therefore their children will not get education and a well paid job in the future. With the job that they can get without any education will enable them to get jobs that will only offer them basic living.
Who is to be blamed for this situation? My country India is second in world population and the poverty rate is also very high.. “According to World Bank the head count of poverty ratio in India is the people living on less than $1.25 a day is almost 32.7% in 2010.” It could be due the negligence of the Government departments in promoting farming or small scale industries which provide people with a job to earn for their lives. Educational backwardness (in certain regions of India) is also a reason for increase in informal jobs in which there is no fixed wage and also there can be days many may have to stay back home due to climatic conditions and political disorders which is very common in a multiparty democracy like
Less developed countries are poor because they do not have adedquate capital resources for investment. Professor Nurkse stated that: “The main reason of vicious circle of poverty is the lack of capital formation”. A country which has poor finance is trapped in its own poverty. A country can get rid off from poverty if its rate of capital formation increases than the rate of population growth. Nurkse said: “On both sides of the problem of capital formation in poor countries a vicious circle exists.” So capital formation is the key to economic development by demand and supply of
(Poppendieck 573) Hunger cannot be solved by simply giving the hungry free food, that only continues the cycle of hunger. Poppendieck believes that by solving the issue of inequality the issue of hunger will be solved as well. It is clear that the distribution of resources if uneven, but what does that mean for those with less? In the article Economic Inequality, Food Insecurity, and Erosion of Equality of Capabilities in the United States it states that "Because of increasing economic inequality in the united states, growing segments the U.S. economy have become more food insecure and obese, eating unhealthy food for survival." (Elmes 2) There's no doubt that healthy food is more expensive than processed foods so often times
According to Chamber (2015:173) deprivation trap can be defined as the condition of scarcity where poor people lack necessities to ensure human welfare. Money is a source of everything, so economic scarcities force people to dwell in poverty without way out. Deprivation trap make people to become more dependent because self-help is highly impossible if a person have no job or resources. Swanepoel (2016:5) states that human beings struggle to overcome poverty they find themselves into. Many people trapped in poverty with no way out are in rural areas in homesteads, out of cities where development of infrastructure is less likely to be occur.
They are unwilling to follow standards set by society, and make damaging conscious decisions such as using drugs or committing crimes. Rutger Bregman of “The Correspondent” illustrates more valid examples about the lower class, stating how they are usually the last to sign up for money management training and “when responding to job ads, the poor often write the worst applications and show up at interviews in the least professional attire” (Bregman 1). Although this might be true, the impacting cognitive effects from an impoverished upbringing can explain these behaviors. For the lower class, resting is a luxury and they are often exhausted by how much they have to work in order to pay the bills. The Atlantic states how “poverty 's stress interferes with our ability to make good decisions... because the short-term needs are so great and the long-term gains so implausible” (Thompson 1).
Effects of poverty - Why is poverty a problem? 1. The sheer amount of people living in poverty Whilst it’s probably true that poverty cannot and never will be completely eradicated because of factors such as public services not being able to reach out to the entire global population, people’s unwillingness to receive education or seek employment and so on, it is impossible to ignore the fact that almost half the world’s population today are living beneath the poverty line (set at USD2.50 a day).  Although this data is relatively outdated, recent censuses and investigations show that although the proportion of people living in poverty has declined slightly, numbers remain approximately the same due to a growing global population. Therefore, poverty is a problem that every single person, regardless of their wealth should not take lightly because
However, millions of people, typically in poorer developing countries rely upon staple foods to fill their stomach. These foods do not provide them required micronutrients. Micronutrient malnutrition, also known as “hidden hunger” is one of the major alarming problems in the developing world, affecting an estimated three billion people (Bouis, et al. 2011). Nutritious food is too expensive and/or sometimes unavailable.
Social exclusion refers to processes by which individuals may become cut off from full involvement in the wider society. Social exclusion is a wider term than poverty, and includes a lack of resources and income and exclusion from the labour market, services and social relations. Homelessness is one of the most extreme forms of social exclusion. Homeless people lacking a permanent residence may be shut out of many everyday activities which most people take for granted. Crime and social exclusion go hand and hand,when a person due to insuffcient money or any other cause of poverty is socially excluded,the person finds quick methods to earn a livelihood these quick methods of earning money and make a life style include wrong and ill legal activities.Many children who do not have adults to guide them properly fall into this trap.These activities range from muders to theft.The sole purpose of people to engage in such activities is to earn money so that they are no longer excluded from the
