Which countries is Australia more obligated to help? Why? Where should most of our aid go?

It's amazing how much reduction India has had! But it's sad that Nigeria will be getting a bigger population of poverty..

Is It Crazy to Think We Can Eradicate Poverty?

Is It Crazy to Think We Can Eradicate Poverty? | Would you like difference? | Scoop.it
The end to extreme poverty might very well be within reach. But is the bar too low?

 

The World Bank aims to raise just about everyone on Earth above the $1.25-a-day income threshold. In Zambia, an average person living in such dire poverty might be able to afford, on a given day, two or three plates of cornmeal porridge, a tomato, a mango, a spoonful each of oil and sugar, a bit of chicken or fish, maybe a handful of nuts. But he would have just pocket change to spend on transportation, housing, education and everything else.

Hannah Campbell's insight:

I do not think it is crazy to think we can eridacte poverty, but the world's richest and most developed countries need to support the developing countries.

We Can't stop poverty completly
Jacquie Rintoul's comment, June 20, 2013 10:08 PM
I agree with Sarah. While many people think that poverty can be eradicated, the world's economy simply cannot hold up every single country. Even if it was able to, countries would probably get into debt and end up poorer than before.
JH Tan's curator insight, January 19, 2014 7:52 AM

It is extremely hard to eradicate poverty in the world as most people in the world is still living below the $1.25 a day income.However, if  gorverments from developed countries are willing to support the developing countries,I believe we will be able to hit the target set by the world bank to raise just about everyone on earth above the $1.25 a day income.
