Can Fairtrade in India help close growing gulf between rich and poor? | Poverty Assignment by _ Fazlur | Scoop.it
Selling Indian Fairtrade-certified products to the middle classes could bolster small farmers and tackle rising inequality, writes Deborah Doane (Can Fairtrade in India help close growing gulf between rich and poor?
Rulzaf RocksGess's insight:

Yes. Fair trade means no cheating of money. Imagine if your money gets cheated and you are not aware that you  got cheated until you suddenly realise that one day that your money is running low and you are not gaining the profit. You will not like it . Thats why you should not cheat as it can destroy the person whom you cheat. The people work hard and all you can do is cheat?! Fair trade is so important that without it the whole country is accused of corruption . So we have to always have a sense of fair trading . For example you pay $.1.50 for a Kit Kat chocolate . Then you realise that old aunty who owns that shop takes the $1.50 and she gives you $1.70 . Will she earn any profit. She is working hard day and night to provide shelter and food for here family.You earn a profit of 20 cents and she loses $1.50 . People if this happens all the time then one day she will become poor. So we should always remember to do trade and buisness fairly

The War on Poverty would have been won if years of gains hadn't gone to those at the top. (Amazing -- if inequality hadn't gone through the roof, we would have ELIMINATED poverty years ago.
Rulzaf RocksGess's insight:

Even though there might be inequality among people , the rich people have to think about those poor people , children without studies , families without home. Some people might be living in Condominium Houses , Very big House , but there are people who sleep in the road side. People with no roof. People who couldn't protect themselves from the rain . You might be wasting your money on Air - conditioning while poor families depend on the breeze. Think through this.If u had stop wasting too much water in the shower , stop wasting food and stop wasting money on unecessary items why would there be poor families. People of the poor would be living on the money you waste. Extremly poor people even eat what you throw into the bin. Think before you waste . See before you do . Wonder what will happen to the wasted item. In Calcutta , People live happily even if they are poor. Thats why it is  know as the City of Joy . Money does not equal to happiness

The candidates agree education is essential to American prosperity. So why aren't they talking more about it?

Rulzaf RocksGess's insight:

The answer is People want to be part of Politition to rule or take control of a state . Education is a minor thing to them . The Government has to take charge on education . They spend so much on political issues . They could have used the money to fund needy students who wanted to learn . These are poor children who can't afford to pay for their education . The Government should step in to take control of this situation. The more educated students the country has the better and faster the country will prosper. They should take it into consideration.
