Keith Lee's insight:
after reading this article i thought that since the poor has not much money, what are they going to do with the money they could have. but more importantly what are the fortunate people, who are lucky enough to be in a well-to-do family, doing with their money? In this artcles it says that while some people on the other hand are starving while some of us are feeding ourselves with unhealthy but luxuriis food till a certain extent of wasting them. i feel the least we can do is to not waste our food and appreciate what we have.
Fifty years ago this month, President Lyndon B. Johnson launched the 'war on poverty' an attempt to harness the power of government to help the poor. Here are nine things you should know about poverty in America.
Keith Lee's insight:
one thing i should know is that the official method of measuring poverty in America has remained unchanged since the 1960s. this might suggest thet this method of measuring might be effective to measure poverty in the past but looking at poverty rates now i dont think this method of measuring poverty is relevant. The poverty threshold is based on the average amount of income spent on food in 1955. At that time families spent about 33% of their income on food. Today, Americans spend an average of 6.8% of their income on food, the lowest percentage in the world. i feel very fortunate to be in singapore which poverty rates are not as high as America's
Ending poverty far more than changing the income level of people who are lacking funds and poverty is the result of differences in the power structure of a nation. i feel that in order to eliminate poverty the people must put aside thier inequalities,skin colur and races to work together. this way the power structure of the nation can be changed
