“Someday, the capitalist system will disappear in the United States, because no social class system has even eternal. One day, class societies will disappear” - Fidel Castro. Peter Singers’ “A Solution To World Poverty” is viewed as a drastic way to end world poverty. Barbara Lazear Aschers “On Compassion” makes the reader understand that it is okay to help the lower class. Singer and Ascher have contrasting viewpoints on social class, particularly on donating money and the willingness to save a lower class citizen.
Money: the root of most social problems and one of the few matters that almost everyone has an opinion on. Peter Singer’s “The Singer Solution to World Poverty,” a newspaper article, is no exception. Singer argues that one should donate all unnecessary money to the less fortunate because of the morality of the situation. However, though the goal is noble, his commentary is very ineffective due to its condescending tone, lack of hard facts, and overall extremism. The piece is written by Peter Singer, an Australian professor of bioethics at Princeton University.

This idea would, as Singer purpose, is supposedly supposed to solve the World’s poverty issue. However with an issue this complex, a solution is not always going to black and white, thus it is important to weigh the pros and cons before rejecting or endorsing this idea. Singer attempts to close this gap with the age old question of ‘why don’t we give the riches’ money to the poor’.

Module 7 Discussion The Great Depression of the 1930’s created the worst economic / financial crisis the country had to face. Up until FDR won the election in 1932 and throughout his presidency, FDR’s primary focus was on handling and responding to the consequences that the depression had caused. He did this by implementing policies, legislation, reform and laws in order to help the American people and restore confidence in the financial markets.

I believe it can fix a broken system that has hindered the health of Americans for years. The American health system has been controlled by private, all-for-profit companies who couldn’t care less about the health of a human, but are more worried about maximizing their dollars. If the Affordable Care Act is repealed, or “done away with”, tens of millions of Americans will be without adequate health insurance. This is exactly what Americans
Raising money to lower homelessness in America would not necessarily be a problem if people took it seriously. Homelessness is often overlooked due to the outstanding amount of money it would take to help the homeless. Though it would probably take a few years, getting the money to help them is possible. Another problem American may face as we help assist the homeless is that we do not know how to help them in the meantime. For example, we do not want to keep the homeless on the streets as we raise the money to help them, so we need a solution.
