I cannot recommend this Bill Moyer episode enough. It will enlighten so many people to what changes took place as a key to cause the economy to be bailed out or most have likely failed a little over four years ago. It is would worth the watch  and a share for even more people to start the new year with their eyes wide open and more fully informed about something as important as our past which if we are not careful also becomes our future again, and again.

 

Please take time to watch thisI cannot recommend this Bill Moyer episode enough.Key players that altered the economic security of all of us, this nation and the world speak out here. The changes discussed here and the Libor scandal have played a huge role in changing the lives of the once strong middle class and harvesting the wealth of nations to the hands of a few.

A Look at Poverty’s Evil Twin | Taking Note

A Look at Poverty’s Evil Twin | Taking Note | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it

Today the U.S. is polarized, yet this post by John Merrow states "I have found something that unites Republicans and Democrats: neither party talks about poverty, despite our current epidemic of child poverty and its consequences for the life chances of millions of children."

Merrow continues to discuss poverty, and what he describes as its "evil twin, greed" stating that "we cannot solve on in isolation."

He provides a number of statistics from the National Center for Children in Poverty, including:

* 31% of white children - 12.1 million - live in low-income families.

* 64% of black children - 6.5 million - live in low-income families.

* 31% of Asian children - 1.0 million - live in low-income families.

* 63% of Hispanic children - 10.7 million - live in low-income families.

When you add in American Indian and children of other races, 30 million children live in poverty.

For more information on this and to learn more about "deep poverty" and "normal poverty" as well as a look at salary differentials between the typical CEO and the typical worker click through to the article. Merrow suggest that "if we backed away from greed, we would be more open to recognize the scourge of poverty and the long term threat it poses to our nation."

In my opinion this article shows the unbalanced percentage of poverty all around the world.From this i can infer that there are a lot of people living in poverty.There are more white children living in poverty than the American Indians, this shows the racial imbalance too ,why are there more non white children living in poverty than the white ,its called racism.It can be infered that the white people think highly of themselves , however the reason of why do they have more poverty children is because of greed!The article suggest on what they should do to solve the problem, "if we backed away from greed, we would be more open to recognize the scourge of poverty and the long term threat it poses to our nation."AND i totally agree with what is written on the article.BUT humans are born GREEDY!

Poverty is increasing all around the world. If the world leaders do not do anything about it then it won't stop increasing. Financial assistance is sometimes not enough to get their daily needs. That is why the world leaders need to get poverty undone.
