The quick fix is to kill all poor people. No poor people = no poverty. So why not not nuke most of Africa? I emailed David Cameron about this but he said no, something to do with the Geneva convention... :/

if you care as much as you do, just donate to charity, and convince others of your reasoning and encourage them to do as you do

It is an utopia to put the poverty an end. Its only possible, if the people in the whole world are living modest. Modesty by all people is impossible.

Your free market rubbish has destroyed the world enough and continues to grind humanity into the ground, Mr Banker. Trickle down economics is, and always has been, a complete lie. Workers sweat and toil to grow the economic pie, only to have the parasites take most of the gains. Perhaps this is just the kind of world you love.

There is more than enough for everyone, and yet we continue to use and build upon an economic system based on exploitation and obscene inequality. Should humanity be around in 100 years time, historians will view us as absolute morons.

Take a look at the statistics. Ever since the financial industries was de-regulated back in the later mid 1900s there has been an increase in wealth from the richest. This has helped bring a real wealth increase to the poorest in society. Inequality may have increased, although poverty has improved however much you may wish to deny it.

It's easy for those who are envious of the rich to say trickle down economics is a lie, however it has obviously proven to work. I don't argue that the rich have a higher marginal propensity to save, however give them more money they are likely to be the ones doing the major investment spending. What's long-term economic growth without improvements in the supply-side of the economy?

There's a difference between an increase in inequality and poverty. Poverty has declined (relative poverty is defined as below 60% of median income) but then relative poverty would always be inevitable as a gini-coefficient of 0 is near (if not) impossible.

The free-market system creates an incentive function. An economy is built on productivity and once you take a way the basic human desire to work you're left with nothing but a crumbling system of continuous intervention by governments leading to economic decline.

At the end of the day, the CEOs and those who provide enterprise as a factor of production make the gains as they are the risk-takers.. However their risks raise living standards for the rest of the ungrateful population.

Just realised we're talking about world poverty. Yes, it sucks... get rid of the corrupt governments and we can start making improvements. Each economy has to fend for themselves, at the end of the day. The simple approach would be to use the concept of comparative advantage to have a fair export system. Then again, no-one cares about a fair system.. greed is the driving force which rules the corporates.

Our leaders as absolute morons mind, im sure most people would say they are unhappy with how things are and how we expect the future to look like.

The worlds a complex mess, it will never mobilise to end poverty because the structures we entrust to deal with these problems have their sights set on other initiatives like profit, politics and prestige. I wouldn't go as far as branding Capitalism as the reason for the state of the third world, indeed somewhere down the line it holds the keys to alleviate poverty.

Distribution of income after earnings is a complete **** system.. especially when it's 45% for higher income earners. Government were smoking on that Mary J when making these decisions. Atleast they made the sensible decision to drop Corp tax from 28% to 21%, hopefully encourages some FDI into the UK.

Solving absolute poverty in the world is simply a pointless task, if we don't benefit from it. Reality is no-one cares for other countries.

Ending poverty would mean no rich people and life would be boring. There would be no career goal and we would all live the same.

With regards to absolute poverty the third world should simply follow the model set for them by developed nations. That is to say that if the third world can undergoe economic growth and invest prudently in infrastructure and a functioning welfare system then you effectively end absolute poverty as we have done in the UK. Ending relative poverty is much less important since it's not proper poverty and not a bad thing per say.

All we have to do is go to the start of it.
Poverty is a remnant of imperialism. A post-slavery socioeconomic disaster. Globalisation and large corporations and conglomerates in undeveloped countries to further exacerbate poverty by imposing Western ideals these countries naturally cannot keep up with. The dregs of society are low income anchoring down the mobility of economic progress, yet the dregs of society are descendants of slaves of all races. It's imperialism's fault there is poverty. Though I am white it's true that no one in the government wants to devolve power or support progress in these impoverished countries. They just want to keep running them disregarding their people until till they fall. Really sad. As for poverty in like UK or the US or western countries, these people are mainly stuck in western genocide; their parents and foreparents were low income and so the cycle can't be broken because the people in government don't care. Only a few people "make it out" and they don't look back either to help. Poverty is a vicious cycle of many self destructing governments.

What type of poverty do you mean?
Do you mean worldwide poverty?
As in people in rural villages in Africa and Asia?

If so what is the aim, is it for them to **** in porcelain bowls full of clean water or to actually get clean water to drink?

wth, why are people even liking this. This is the highest degree of BS I've heard in my life. MNCs setting up in LEDCs does wonders for the host nation. The opportunity in the west to break free of the poverty cycle is handed down on a plate.. yet individuals don't make smart choices or beneficial career moves.

The lazy are the ones at the bottom society in the UK and they only suffer relative poverty (which isn't even that bad).

As for LEDCs and BRIC nations, without MNCs setting up in their countries they would be in a much worse position.
