Clair Koh's insight:

What i know is that poverty is poor whereas affluence is wealthy. What makes me wonder about this is why is the world so unfair. And why is it so that the poor people have such horrible lives. They go through the same hunger everyday. The people who are wealthy should help out a little as they have plently of cash to spare. And also this leads me to another question. Why isn't the governement or some fiancial assistance help helping them instead of letting them suffer.

Rapidly growing inequality is worsening poverty around the world

Rapidly growing inequality is worsening poverty around the world | Clarissa | Scoop.it

Clair Koh's insight:

What i know is that poverty is poor and it is all over the world. People out there are suffering from hunger and they do not have a proper home and food. They food they eat are leftovers from garbages and dustbins. What if we could help them. Each person could donate $1 yes it is a small amount but there are tons of people living in Singapore. It could add up to more than a million. It could saves the lives of many. But what makes me wonder is why do some people not care or bother to help at all. Maybe some are really poor themsevles but what about the rich? Some do not care. Another thing is why is the rate of poverty not decreasing. Why can they not have a life better than a homeless and starving one.

The world have more and more people growing so the nature resources in the world what be come lesser and lesser. Thus there will soon not be enough nature resources in the world for everyone in the world. So the world needs to control the birth rate in the world.

From my point of view, selfishness that greeds over money around the world causes an unequal distribution of wealth in this world. However, I totally disagree about donating money to them. What they need is skills, not money. You can use the money to make a project on raising skills for people living in poverty.

Yes. i agree with you totally and I believe that the origin of poverty rooted from people's selfishness. This selfishness that greeds over money causes an inequal distribution of wealth in this world. Many rich people have too much money that they spend it anyhow while people that are poor dont even have enough money to support the family. I think the rich should really donate to those that are poor.<br><br> Have everything for yourself that you may enjoy your life while "unfortunate" people pass away everyday because of the lack of money and resources OR use your wealth and donate them to these unfortunate people thus helping in the balancing of wealth in this world so that you and these people in poverty both may live a comfortable life. It's not about choices, it's responsibility.
