Brazil lifts 3.5mn out of poverty in 2012- Report | The BRICS Post | JYZ | Scoop.it
Rousseff had in February this year raised the monthly stipend of 2.5 million people living below the poverty line.
Jiang Yi Zhou's insight:

The Brazilians' life is  very  hard, and the payment is extremely low .They  are getting more poor, I   think that it is very  difficult to find a job there.The government is trying  their best to help poor peope,and change the decision to social  exclusion.They want to  have a nation which are justice and  fair. Recycling the running  water and  garbage, it  improved the quality of life  among the social.I still  do not understand why  there still many poor people in Brazil.

Could Free Money Solve Poverty?

Could Free Money Solve Poverty? | JYZ | Scoop.it

Programs to manage poverty in the United States aren’t cheap either. The combined costs of supplemental food assistance, Earned Income Tax Credit, and Medicaid top a trillion per year, according to the Cato Institute –over $20,610 per year per poor individual, when the minimum poverty threshold was $12,119 in 2013.

•I know that the united states is experienced poverty and the US government is trying their best to help the US citizens and givng them free money. I think that the US government should provide assistant scheme instead of giving them free money as the citizens might any how use it. They should create a CPF  like what we have in  Singapore so  the government can also help manage US citizens money . I don’t get why are there no jobs avaliable.

Free money does not quite solve poverty.sometimes it makes it worse because if the government have to give free money then there won't be enough of it. This will cause the whole state of even the whole country to be in poverty.

Shareezan's curator insight, February 27, 2014 3:42 AM

I can see that it is not easy to solve poverty problems as it can cost or use up a lot of money. As there is a huge percentage of poverty, it is going to use up a lot of finance to help every single one. For Singapore it is a small country so it is not a big issue. For other countries on the other hand, it is the worst problem to counter. I think the government is trying their very best to help as much as possible but they cannot do every single one. I wonder will the people understand what is the government trying to do?

Generically, the problem is how we handle money, not how much money we have (or don't have). When apples cost 5 cents we had poverty, now they cost a dollar and we have poverty. 'More Money' was why we went from gold to paper.

Generically, those with credit or an inheritance have the means to move ahead, and those with help fall behind. They are just trading places, one moves up as another moves down.

To solve the problem of poverty (inequality or concentration), then we need to look at how we handle money, and in particular how things are valued. People scream about wage and price controls destroying the free market, but we have wage and price controls already, set by business owners (like me). The system can't work, because competition makes us grotesquely inefficient, which is really what poverty represents.

Britain faces food poverty ‘national crisis’ because of Government welfare reforms, bishops warn | JYZ | Scoop.it
Failures in the benefits system and a “punitive” set of Government cutbacks to welfare have left Britain with a food poverty “national crisis”, according to a group of church leaders.

Jiang Yi Zhou's insight:

I know the Britain citizens are suffered by the higher costs of food There are huge pressures which the government  have  faced .The food prices have gone up 30 per cent in just five years, and  people using food banks have been cutbacks to and failures in the benefit system,. I think the problem can be solved by supplies from the unit nation.Many countries also can support Britain by  giving  free food to their citizens who needs..At last,I want to know the  real situation of  hunger people in Britain.
