haziq's insight:

The use of 'present-technology' can help some of those in need to lead a better and safe life. For example, credit cards are being used, for this instance. Credit cards help them to keep their hard-earned money, even though they are notthat much, safey, rather than have those money lying around where they can get lost easily.

Connections

Changes

Challenges

-What makes me thinking is that why didnt the president think of the consequences before doing such things.
