Poverty is reckoned to be the most usual consequence of various factors accounting for it in most countries of the world.
Let's have a candor look at them :
Poverty is caused by a lack of opportunity as well as a lack of developed ability. If there is an unequal chance of a baby growing up with good food, and with parents too tired and unhealthy to provide proper parenting, then that child will have an unequal opportunity for making the most of any education or facility in his or her environment.
If the environment for the poor has less fresh air, play equipment, educational facilities, then those living there have an unequal chance of developing favorable attitudes let alone healthy and well-educated adults. With all these less pleasant aspects, the adults will be less successful in life. Therefore, they are not likely to provide better for their children. Those children will then likely live in unfortunate circumstances. This circularity is the route from inequality to poverty.
Poverty will always have an effect on the economy of the company. First of all, because of poverty, the demand for certain things will be greatly reduced. Items that the company may sell will start not to sell well because people do not have the money to purchase these items anymore.
Second thing, it would require different agencies to provide welfare programs, which means that there is even less money available to the companies who are trying to sell their items. Some of the employees may also get affected by poverty, and they may not have the means anymore to go to work. It can be problematic for everyone because everyone will become affected.
I always ask myself this question, why are some people rich and some people poor? Could it be natural, or is the inequality created so that there would a difference between the poor and the rich, or so that we would have a balanced world. Later I realized everybody cannot be rich lest there would be problem. Nobody will want to be on farm, nobody will want to be under someone else. So, I found out reasons why there are so much inequality.
The first thing I observed about rich people is that, they like taking risks and out of their actions, they finally hit jackpot one day. Poor people do not like to be taking risks, they don't want to lose their money.
Another thing is that, rich people are good readers, if you want to be rich you need to read about things that pertain to the business you are into. Poor people only start their business and leave it at the mercy of luck. Rich people usually leverage or take advantage of situations that will earn them a lot.
The levels of poverty are figured on different levels.The main one, is on a Federal level. The Federal Guideline goes for the contingent United States. Alaska and Hawaii are more expensive so they get an allowance. For one person in a family, $12,490 is the poverty level. That amount or below constitutes poverty.
For each person in the household, you add on $4,420. That is annual wages before taxes are deducted which is the gross income. Medicaid is a program that has been put into place to help those who are within 138 percent of the poverty level.
That causes some to strive to be in that low level but others cannot help it and are just relieved to have help. Some, however, fall between the cracks and make a tad too much but not enough to survive really.
Many diseases have strong roots in poverty. AIDS is actually one of them. Those who are poor end up doing drugs in order to escape the horrible conditions they live in. They often sell drugs too so they can make money which frequently leads to doing drugs too.
They have sex a lot too for lack of anything better to do. Those in poverty are usually not as informed as those who are better off, often because they can't read or write and information is not as accessible to them. All those things add up to being at a higher risk for AIDS. Other diseases, like Malaria, are very common in third world countries where there isn't money for prevention, be it vacines or even mosquito nets.
Tuberculosis is another disease that those in poverty are more apt to get. Again, for reasons of sanitation and for lack of funding for vaccination and lack of funding for the treatment that is necessary to help get rid of it and then others get it too and it can become a widespread disease.
As of 2015, it was estimated that nearly a third of the United Kingdom’s population fell below the poverty line at least once between 2010 and 2013. This comes to a total of around 19.3 million people that lived in poverty for at least a short period in that three-year span. However, only 7.8% were found to be persistently below the poverty line, which was defined as being below the poverty line in the current year, and for at least 2 of the previous 3 years.
This comes to a total of about 4.5 million people. Single-parent families and those on pension seem to be the ones that are most likely to fall in this category. Evidence also suggests that those who have been in poverty in the past are more likely to experience it again in the future.
There are so many poor countries in the world, mostly developing countries and some countries that are crisis or crime ridden. How countries are classified to be poor depends on so many things, starting from the income of a country, cost of living, infrastructures, access to good health and most importantly availability of food.
A country with high cost of living, poor health services, scarcity of food, dilapidated infrastructures, and low job opportunity is a poor country. Though, there are many causes of poverty which can be, conflict, lack of education, lack of infrastructures.
Here are the lists of poor countries: India: India is regarded as one of the poorest countries in the world, this can as a result of their huge population, basic facilities supply is very low in India, and most of them do not live below $1 per day.
Afghanistan: is also a poor country. The country is crime and crisis ridden and this could be their number one cause of poverty. Other poor countries are Malawi, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, and most of Sub Saharan Africa.
There are many ways through which poverty can be prevented. To eliminate poverty is not easy but a sincere and practical approach can solve it. People are regarded as poor because some things caused it, so if we would have a society that is free of poverty, there's is need to reverse what's causing poverty.
Job creation by the government and also private individuals and companies can help eliminate poverty, there's poverty because people don't have a source of living but when jobs are available, people will be ready to work and this will reduce crime rate.
Provision of adequate basic needs like food, shelter, water supply can also help reduce poverty. When there's availability of basics needs at the right proportion it will reduce poverty.
- Whoever wants to be free from poverty should desire to be educated. When you are educated, you will be open to a lot of opportunities. However, government should be ready to provide adequate funding for the education sector.
Embarking on a mission to end poverty in our society is an unrealistic goal, though poverty level can be reduced. Nothing goes until its causes are tackled. Meaning, if we are going to have poverty free society, we must be ready to fight the causes of poverty.
Aside this, any attempt to eliminate poverty will require a lot from us, it must be a cooperate fight. We must start by willing to end the age-long inequality between us. Eliminating poverty throughout the world will require sacrifices from developed countries to assist the underdeveloped and the developing countries by trying to help them not to fall into recession and ensure high economy growth.
You see that all of these is never going to be possible looking at the fact that, it will cost some of the world's biggest businesses many billions of dollars and top world leaders will never agree because any attempt to do that will bring them to the same level with other leaders of the world
