Jia Ling's insight:
As we have already learnt about poverty, this is one article about poverty that have been affecting the European jews and causing a great impact to their lifestyle. In retrospect, I guess poverty will really cause a great impact on others' lifestyle if they have children to feed but there's only one person in the family who can supported all of them. Also, poverty is mainly due to the economic plunging into a crisis and a decreasement in the economic growth rates. By reading this article, I can deduce that the European jobless rate is very high and they are currently facing an increase in the unemployment rate, which is the main factor that causes poverty affecting the European Jews. I feel that the family mentioned in this article is having a quite positive attitude towards poverty as they allowed their children to draw on the wall (they have no wallpaper) to bring hapiness and joy to the house. One question I would like to ask is : Is the government doing anything to bring up the economic growth rates or helping the unemployees to get a job?
This article link to poverty as the people are trying to build an Anti-Poverty movement. What I really like about this article is that the writer is willing to create a movement to stop the poor from suffering, and as well as to lead a better life like the average people in the world. The few points are : Coalition of Immokalee Workers, Center for Community Change, Children's Healthwatch, Half in Ten, Occupy our Homes/Home defenders league. The main action in this text is how people can come together to stop poverty in some countries. This article is also focusing on how the poor and fight for living-wage jobs, stable life and paying for the basic things in life like taxes, utility bills etc. One question I would like to ask is : Are there anymore people who are willing to stand up for the poor?
Three Myths on the World's Poor Wall Street Journal So why do so many people seem to think things are getting worse? Much of the reason is that all too many people are in the grip of three deeply damaging myths about global poverty and development.
Jia Ling's insight:
This article links to poverty in many ways like finance, economic growth rates, families etc. In my opinion, I think the important and ideas that are in this text is mainly about revolution around the world, making things better in the future and myths about poverty. Bill and Melinda Gates estimated that in 2035, there will be almost no poor countries left in the world except for certain countries being held back by war and political issues like North Korea. I guess that diseases are also one main factor that causes poverty in the country. If there is a widespread of a very dangerous disease, the countries's reputation might be greatly affected and people will definitely refrain from visiting those countries. This might cause a decrease in the tourism rate and decrease in the economic growth. I guess the writers have a really great positive attitude towards poverty and trying to change the mindsets of others of what they think about poverty, by considering that as a "myth" which i agree. The writers is also clearing misconceptions of what others think about poverty.
