Could Free Money Solve Poverty?

Could Free Money Solve Poverty? | poverty | 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.

It is a very interesting idea and might probably work as it is easier than the other ideas. Not all will agree with the idea

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?

viknesh's curator insight, March 2, 2014 9:40 AM

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.
