Now, it has been proven that mortality affects more children, than adults. To summarize, mortality is a negative consequence caused by different situations. According to some, “Malnourished people are more vulnerable to diseases, take the risk to develop an anthropometric deficiency, in some cases they are apathic and, in general, are less capable of having a healthy life” (Levy 32) A.- Causes 1.- Uneven distribution of wealth Mexico ranks among the top 15 countries because of its economic wealth and yet has high poverty rates. This is due in large part to the unequal distribution of wealth and national production between the populations Most of the time people with more economic resources) benefit from the production of the country, but the correct thing would be that everyone benefits, but the reality is that most of the individuals are excluded from the distribution of goods. This means, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
First, it is harmful to the society due to the reason that if raw materials of a country are taxed, and then the country will raise the cost of production as a result of lack of competitive capacity with other countries. Second, indirect tax is a type of regressive tax. It creates income inequality because whoever a rick man or a poor man who pay for the tax, the price in the market is same. The tax is the percentage of the price; for example, 5 $ is a huge amount for poor people whereas to rich people, it is almost nothing. Hence, rick people and poor pay the same amount which is unfair.
Poverty in LDCs can be associated with the existence of little or no profit generating ventures, most especially in the rural areas, no or little financial support, overpopula-tion and poor infrastructure which lead to low productivity and persistent poverty in LDCs. Augsburg et al. (2012) argue that problems associated with entrepreneurship and economic growth are credit rationings, which eventually result into a greater level of poverty among the affected people. Tang (1995, pg. 846) argues similarly, that the main economic problem confronting developing countries is “financial intermediation”.
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
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
“Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid, it is man-made and can be removed by the actions of human beings.” -Nelson Mandela. In 2014, 46.7 million people were said to be living in poverty. The unsatisfactory rate of 15% of penniless Americans should be decreased. Poverty is defined as the state of being extremely poor.Considering that America is a free, independent, and wealthy nation, the poverty percentage shouldn’t be as high as it is today.
There are several reasons why a lot of countries still suffer from poverty today.One being geographical factors such as climate,landscape and natural resources.For instance,a country like Cyprus which is really dependent on tourism,needs landscape in order to attract tourists and maintain a consistent income for the country otherwise their country will slowly decline.This also explains why most African countries are poor,the climate is extremely dry so many countries are suffering from drought which leads to unfertile land so most food and crops cannot be planted as well as not enough drinking water and source of clean water for everyone.The stages of economy of every country starts from the primary sector which includes extracting natural resources but in this case this cannot be done since deserts occupies most part of Africa causing most poor countries to be trapped in a poverty trap and it makes it harder for them to escape poverty.Therefore,these poor countries cannot develop further and remains poor.Secondly,political factors are also very important as corruption is very common within poor countries.Corruption is caused by poor management and this leads to more social inequality and uneven distribution of wealth meaning the rich is very rich and poor is very poor so if you calculate the average(GDP Per Capita)the country will still be fairly poor.For example,Scandinavian countries and Japan has the most well evenly distributed wealth because the welfare state within
7). Poverty as a result of faulty public policy is another said cause of poverty, in which “jurisdiction’s public policies play an important role in determining poverty levels” (Raphael, 2013, p. 7). The jurisdiction “focus is upon issues of employment security, wages, tax policy, and state provision of resources such as education, childcare, and health care,” and these characteristics interacting together along with public policies are what leads to poverty (Raphael, 2013, p. 8). The last cause of poverty is poverty as reflecting structural inequalities within society, the wealthy population unfairly profit at the expense of others that are financially deprived (Raphael, 2013, p. 8). According to Raphael (2013), the proposed solutions to poverty is to provide people with “greater educational opportunities and opportunities to learn employment skills, and for public policies to equalize the distribution of economic and other resources, and to balance inequalities in power” (p. 7-8).
This also includes the development of the living; the populist system will give chances for the poor people to have voices and to develop their own living as equal as the wealthy one. For the disadvantages are that First; it makes the economics to be come more fragile by increases the public debt by using lots of money to succeed the schemes. Second; the people who gets the benefits are in groups not entire. As the above paragraph has stated that some schemes are only suitable for some groups of people. Third; the system can leads to corruption because of the amount of money that the government use is a very large amount of money.
It started when all rich people began to get richer while people there where getting rich other people were becoming poor and let them to live without human needs. My suggestion is that all those people that are now living in poor situation should not be like this if there could help so people by proving the poor people with places to stay and food this could poverty not exist. The following are the cause of
