The oxford study must not have inclued the USA in this study and redefined what
being poor is. Poverty and poor are inseprable companinons of socialism so how
they deny poverty and poor a way of live is beyound reason or comprrehenstion.
This artilc is lcearly and feel good message for politicians and socialist
government leaders in the US and abroad.Poverty and poor cannot be
abolished, they are perception of one group of individualist over the lives and
rights of others with fewer asset or possession. Poverty, wealth and poor are
defined by the haves that the have nots don't have. Status is being
measured by monetary wealth only. In many cases the less money you have the
richer you are so this concept is very subjective and fake.
I agree with the previous comment, but feel the areas showing improvement are
doing so at the expense of the American poor. Why are we sending money to those
countries instead of taking care of those in need right here in our nation? Some
nations we are sending money and war weapons to are not our friends and the arms
we provide might just be used against us eventually.
