Poverty is the scarcity or the lack of a certain amount of a certain material possessions or money. Absolute poverty, extreme poverty, or destitution refers to the complete lack of the means necessary to meet basic personal needs such as food, clothing, and shelter. Poverty is not only about income and poor people do not live only in poor countries. Now how do we end poverty? What are we doing to end poverty? Are we doing enough to end poverty? The simplest solution is this; when someone doesn’t have enough money, give them money. Just actually help people to help themselves. Education. Transportation. Housing. Teach people how to find and take advantage of opportunities. Give them a hand to get up that ladder. Most people that whine about the poor needing to pick themselves up by their bootstraps have never been poor, and have no understanding of how difficult it is to do that with limited resources, particularly when everything in the government system is designed to take what resources you have away from you. The government system isn 't designed for the poor. It 's designed for a middle class that 's getting harder to find. The poor have to work within that, and when it goes to debt, medical, emergencies, the unexpected, they fail...and there 's nothing there to stop that failure. If they are going to be law abiding citizens, they have to accept that their depleted and lose their home, their education, their transportation...their means of supporting themselves.
