A New Way to Measure Poverty in India - Real Time Economics - WSJ | Poverty | Scoop.it

India's Poverty rate is one of the highest and ranked extremely low in terms of well-being in the united nations and it is really sad to have to live in a worn out place without proper sanitation, no access to drinkable water and have to be afraid of contracting weird and deadly diseases. This has to go on and on i wonder why are there so less good samaritan that will donate unwanted but reusable stuffs to them and let them live like normal. How should you measure poverty? It is a question that has generated enormous controversy in India.

Hunger and Poverty in America Documentary

A short documentary about poverty and hunger in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The House of Joseph Ministries: Pastor Bill Mann http://www.thehouseofjoseph.org/ M...
Teck En's insight:

It is a very sad thing for the childrens to live in a small garage that only has a door and no windows for fresh air to enter the garage and Pastor Bill Mann is a really kind and good samaritan, he gave food and some items people may need to those needy people and prayed for them to god to bless them. The childrens has no proper toys to play with and they may not even have education which is a really sad thing.

Obama: 'Nobody who works full-time should have to live in poverty ... | Poverty | Scoop.it
President Obama used his executive authority to raise the minimum wage for federal contract workers on Wednesday, declaring: “In the richest nation on earth, nobody who works full-time should have to live in poverty.”.
Teck En's insight:

It would be better if Obama could bring in the increase in pay for those federal contract workers and they may need the increase in pay to support their family. I think it is a good idea as it every dollar helps in changing a persons or others life. I should cherish what i have and not ask for what i want instead of need when i do not have that extra money to get my wants.
