What is World Poverty? Poverty is the state for the majority of the world's people and nation. Besides, poverty is a social illness, and governments the world over are serious on edadicating it. International agencies like United Nations are also involved in programmes to alleviate poverty. Malaysia is an example of a country which has successfull reduced the poverty level. Other countries, however, have not been so successful, and abject poverty continues to be a prominent feature of these society.
Around the world, in rich or poor nations, poverty has always been present. Why is this? It is enough to blame poor people for their predicament? In most nations today, the gap between the rich and poor person is quite high. The are many causes of poverty such as a lack of individual responsibility, bad government policy and exploitation by people.Other people feel that the poor intentionally behave ways that causes their poverty.If people volunteer choose to use drug and thiw will lead them to poverty.However, this case cannot fully leads to poverty.
In addition, the high and standards of living and costs of living also cause a poverty because people in developed nations may have more wealth and resources than those in developing countries, their standard of living is also generally higher.In contrast, in rural areas, people may be accustomed that they do not having plumbing, electricity, or formal health care. Thus,such this living condition are consider as poverty.
Change in labor markets in this modern countries also contributed to the increasing of poverty. The number of relatively high paying jobs has declined, while the demand for workers in service and technology has increased.As these jobs are replaced by service and technology jobs,this jobs that usually require tough skill at the college level will lead people who cannot afford to pay a college education find it difficult to obtain well paying work.The lack of proper education and training also prohibit the poor from entering the well paid sectors of economy.
Futhermore, natural calamities also causes a poverty such as drought and floods destroy crops, and this results is higher suffering and hunger.World hunger is a terrible symptom of world poverty.If efforts are only directed at providing food, then the structural root causes that create hunger, poverty and dependency would still remain. The climate can also be a cause of poverty.The hot climate of India has reduce the capacity of the people to work, and hence, the production cannot be increase in the desired quantity.
Poverty is a social evil which sometimes so acute that threaten human dignity.If we want to uproot poverty, we must check rate of population growth.Once it is controlled, there would be no poverty, no hungers, and no unemployment.Thus,everything will be on the right track.
