We distinguish an absolute poverty and a relative poverty. Nevertheless, the people in this aspect are not able to afford the basic human needs (e.g. clean water, daily nutrition, health care, education,…;), so they are without a doubt poor.
From a historical point of view the industrial revolution diminished mass poverty; hence there is still a belief in many people´s mind that with appropriated economic growth poverty will disappear immediately.
There exist a few international organizations (World Bank, OECD, UN,…;) which give both recommendations and financial support to countries if necessary. Sometimes there even so big you cannot overlook all the actions in which they are involved.
So the question is, how do all the governments act that some countries are more blessed than others throughout the globalization.
It is obvious that the financial crisis which occurred in the recent time is also part of the problem. And it seems that labour productivity, working poverty is likely to have increased as well as poverty. Families live with less than USD 1.25 a day, what is unbelievable. Many people lost their jobs, but there is also a high percentage of workers were at risk of falling into poverty more easily than a few years ago. The largest potential negative impact is in South Asia, South-East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, where extreme working poverty may have increased by 9 percentage points or more in the worst case scenario. These estimates reflect that the fact that preceding the crisis, many workers were only just above the poverty line in these regions. In the case of Sub-Saharan Africa more than two-thirds of workers were at risk of falling below the extreme poverty line in the worst scenario.
So, how are we going to face this problems?
