In 1990, 35% of the global population lived below the extreme poverty line. After three
decades of poverty reduction, it is estimated that in 2015 less than 10% of the world
lived below this line, calibrated at $1.90 a day.
5 While it is important to celebrate this
progress, we can‟t be complacent. For the world to reach the Sustainable
Development Goal target to have eradicated extreme poverty by 2030, the World
Bank has made it clear that we must see a more equal distribution of growth, with an
associated reduction in inequality.
In order to see a reduction in inequality you need more unequal growth, not more equal growth, you ignorant, ignorant, tosspots.
The incomes of the poor must grow more quickly than those of the rich in order to reduce inequality…..
To end the injustice of extreme poverty, it is clear
that economic inequality must be addressed.
Nope, not at all. to end extreme poverty we need to be creating more wealth, more value add. Because people can only consume value that is created.
