One of the most perceptible and large-scale global justice problem world is facing today is the issue of the global poverty. Nowadays more than 1 billion people live in extreme poverty - the condition of people who live less than $1.90 per day, which dismisses them to fulfill their basic needs. To contrast, the average citizen of the USA earns around $26 per hour. According to the originator of the modern dialogue on global distributive justice Rawls book «Law of Peoples», we should ensure that all people are meeting their basic needs. Who is the responsible for that?
Clinton says, “In Atlantic City, 60 miles from here, you'll find contractors and small businesses who lost everything because Donald Trump refused to pay his bills.People who did the work and needed the money, and didn't get it – not because he couldn't pay them, but because he wouldn't pay them.That sales pitch he's making to be your president? Put your faith in him – and you'll win big?”Not only does Hillary focus more on her plans, and facts, but Hillary strikes back fewer times that Trump. The factual based evidence and strong points is what puts Hillary Clinton at the more successful speech. After reading both speeches I came to the conclusion that Hillary Clinton had an overall more successful speech than Donald Trump. A successful speech consists of emotion, factual evidence, strong points and plans for
His findings led him to conclude that these people had a certain way of living, complete with their own norms, values and behaviour, which, according to him, was a reaction to their position in a capitalistic society and their overall poverty (Cordasco, 1967). Though Lewis’ theory appears to be a global phenomenon, several improvements and specifications should be made to apply his theory to modern day issues concerning poverty. In this paper, I will evaluate Lewis’ theory by not simply focusing on its meaning and original intention but also by drawing on some of the critique it received. Finally, I will introduce some ideas, which could improve the applicability of the theory in modern society. Oscar Lewis first introduced the culture of poverty theory in 1959 in his book Five Families: Mexican Case Studies in the Culture of Poverty but truly elaborates on his theory in La Vida: A Puerto Rican Family in the Culture of Poverty – San Juan and New York (1965).
There is no determinant of who gets what benefits. Also, there is a broad spectrum of citizens (baby boomers) who have been paying sc for generations, but there generational size and needs pulls more from the system make it not proportionate to what’s coming in (National academy of social insurance). America’s population differences in size have always been different from other generations. By function, social security is set up for payment of future generations (Pew Research). It’s going to be a downhill spiral if one fourth of a population will not get their benefits, in return causing a disaster.
Poverty – the lack of money, need or scarcity. Poverty in America is an on growing problem in America due to many reasons. Although many people currently in poverty resort to the government providing welfare, the government could’ve put them in their position in the first place. As stated by David Brooks of the New York Times, “The problem is not lack of attention, and it’s not mainly lack of money.” He continues by stating how poverty has scarcely changed in the past thirty years, also saying how much money is spent on children in schools per year in Baltimore, $15,483 per child. However, in other states with high immigrant presence, the poverty rates are immensely higher.
But, honestly, the country has almost no relations with those on their own system. In fact, the top countries we trade with are “Canada at 54.75 billion, Mexico at 44.24 billion, and china at 42.09 billion” which are all countries who use the standard metric system (Economics-global GO metric). Although some may say that
According to (“Commentary: Apathy in America is a growing plague”,2013)’’,there only 58 percent of qualified voters to vote in 2012 presidential election, when comparing to the 2004 and 2008, the percentage has dropped from above 60% to 58%. One of the reason that causing this phenomenon can be the social emotionless, because they don’t concern who will be the president and the consequence of effects. On the contrary, they focus on the income and entertainment of
There are some education policies that focus on equity that can help reduce economic downfalls in the future. "OECD research has shown that a more equitable distribution of educational opportunities typically results in a more equitable distribution of labor income in countries. It’s also clear that people with higher levels of education have a large competitive advantage in the labor market, both in good and bad economic periods". This helps secure jobs, and higher earnings for future individuals, helping decrease inequality over time. For example, this graph shows the statistics of income inequality in different parts of the world.
(Johnston, 2015). However, countries that suffered a lot were concerned that if they do not devalue their currency it is impossible to get out of economic crisis. To address this issue, two institutions were established which were international monetary fund and the international bank for reconstruction and development. They were responsible for lending money to countries that face difficulties in reviving their economy and attracting financing g from other sources as well as supporting the growth of less developed and impoverished countries for recovering respectively. At last, the Bretton woods system did not survive because there is overvalue of the US dollar but it created a global
The growing concerns of consumers about sustainable products and services lead to legislative amendments and to new products and services that follow the regulations or have a pre-emptive role (Slavova, 2014). The purpose of legislation is to protect the consumers by set prices for consumer goods. Therefore, there will be better quality products, more choice and innovation, all of that is for consumers own benefits. Consumerism influences people’s characters causing poverty. Effects people’s characters is prime heed for causing poverty.
