If there is anyone to blame for the way we are today, it is us. We are like this only because of us and we are completely responsible for it. A couple of centuries ago, the British began to suck our wealth, and now we ourselves are doing so. The ever widening economic inequality The economic equality in our nation has doubled in our country in the last two decades. And this has made India the worst performer amongst the developing nations.
Also, because of the lack of employment there is a lot of child poverty. Child poverty is when a household’s income is less than 50% of the national median. In England over 1 million households are affected by child poverty and over 42 million people are affected by unemployment. In Greece approximately 6 million families are influenced by child poverty and just fewer than 9 million families are overwhelmed by unemployment. England and Greece are democracies and choose their Prime Ministers.
Modern Britain a Divided Society Britain a divided society? Definitely! Despite so-called progress in the last 50 years we remain a socially, economically, religiously, educationally and politically divided society. In our attempts to improve the lot of the poorest socially disadvantaged people in our society we have evolved a benefits and support system that has not helped them to become self-sufficient or promoted the values and qualities of determination, hard work and entrepreneurial spirit that exists throughout our population. The rich are penalized for their contribution to the economy through high tax.
Strategies and Suggestions to Reduce Poverty in Egypt Introduction: Poverty has spread into the whole globe, and most nations are suffering from lack of food and basic needs. One out of two children in the world are considered poor, and 3 billion people live with less than $2.50/day (Causes of Poverty, 2012). Sometimes it is easy to blame poor people for their situation because some are accusing them of being lazy, but most of the times the governments in poor countries are the one who blame. However, it is essential for the governments around the world to makeshift and end this problem. Egypt is one of the countries whose people suffer from poverty.
Before China’s communist rule, poor people owned no land, women have no rights, people do not have education. Before Cuba’s communist community, life expectancy is as low as 59 years old (Diaz-Briquets, Sergio) Only under communist rule, things started to change, people did benefit from it but at the same time suffered from it. Back to the days when China was still a nationalist country ruled by Chiang Kai-Shek, life of peasants were miserable, 90% of the populations of China were farmers, and they don’t own any lands. All the farmlands were own by the rich landlord, which have high rental. At the same time, government was corrupted; government takes away 90% of the crops from the farmer as taxes.
The country itself cannot sustain its own economy without the help of the rest of the world. So the low birth rate in this country is a really big problem if the water trade shuts down. With only 7.42 births per 1000 people, the population is still too big for this small country. Especially when its death rate is 6.93 deaths per 1000 people, and even more so when it’s entire population is urbanized? So why would the country want to make and enforce policies to increase its population, Granted they could make policies where the more children you have or adopt, the more tax breaks you get.
In China for example, the adults [ages 20-40 years old] are working to pay their bills, and have no time to care for their kids. And since most of them know this, they do not have kids, which is causing the population of kids to fall. And the population of the elderly is rising while it plummets. But if the government makes the lives of the working class easier, by reducing taxes [making it easier to pay bills], then they will have time to start a family. And if the government builds nursing homes that take care of the elderly when their family cannot, they will not have to worry about work
Status of Children Bangladesh has a total population of 139.2 million, with a fertility rate of 3.2. The population of children in the age group of 0-14 years is almost 50 million. Given such a large child population, coupled with the low productivity of adults and resource constraints, it is inevitable that not all children are cared for and many of them have to work for their livelihood, which deprives them of a healthy childhood that includes access to nutrition, health care, education and recreation. In 2006, Bangladesh was ranked among the world's medium developed countries at number 137 (out of 177 countries). In UNDP's human poverty index (HPI-1),  Bangladesh ranked 85 th among 102 developing countries.
4. Should we be worried about the great disparities between rich and poor, both nationally and internationally? It is clear to say that the gap between rich and poor in the last twenty to forty years has become a disaster both nationally and internationally now than it ever was. This is one thing that we should be very worried about and concerned as with the current economical climate we could see even ourselves to become to a stage where we can’t afford to pay bills and to provide food for our family. It is very worrying now even more than ever that we could see a majority of our country being poor.
Access to assets, services and economic opportunities is profoundly unequal across the population. Larger households are more likely to be poor, particularly those with many children. Access to education, a major driver of relative wealth, is highly inequitable as well. Almost 30 per cent of poor children do not even start primary school, which is free in Malawi. Secondary and higher education is largely confined to non-poor households, mainly due to the required enrolment fees.
