POVERTY, POLITICS AND PROFIT.

Trump’s Cabinet will never NEVER LOOK  at this about POVERTY, POLITICS AND PROFIT. Ben Carson the dithering dupe would never fight for the poor and housing. Neglect of the poor is just what it is NEGLECT.  Why bother attitude—it is not me.

How sick we are to each other–I am better than you–so we don’t want you in our environment.

Poverty, Politics and Profit | FRONTLINE | PBS

May 9, 2017 FRONTLINE and NPR investigate the billions spent on affordable housing, and why so few get the help they need.

If Ben Carson did his job then maybe something would be done but he is a doctor has no idea what each family goes through and bunches them all like a bunch of grapes.

If you care then educate yourself then watch. Why build in an area without jobs, poor people have to get a bus and if there are no buses then what. The tax credit is not working ,cooking the books and investigations where kick backs with an inflated  scheme of 34.000.000 millions taken from poor housing for profit.

POVERTY, POLITICS AND PROFIT.

 

Corruption toward the poor. There is no way that Trump cares about jobs for the poor and housing why should he. After Saudi Arabia the finger was pointed at Qatar, and the business deals of billions was for making war weapons jobs for the poor he said, what rot the next day Al-Qaeda killed in Iran and the Saudi Arabians hate Iran.

What is poverty Ben Carson?

The World Bank Organization describes poverty in this way:

“Poverty is hunger. Poverty is lack of shelter. Poverty is being sick and not being able to see a doctor. Poverty is not having access to school and not knowing how to read. Poverty is not having a job, is fear for the future, living one day at a time.

Poverty has many faces, changing from place to place and across time, and has been described in many ways.  Most often, poverty is a situation people want to escape. So poverty is a call to action — for the poor and the wealthy alike — a call to change the world so that many more may have enough to eat, adequate shelter, access to education and health, protection from violence, and a voice in what happens in their communities.”

In addition to a lack of money, poverty is about not being able to participate in recreational activities; not being able to send children on a day trip with their schoolmates or to a birthday party; not being able to pay for medications for an illness.  These are all costs of being poor. Those people who are barely able to pay for food and shelter simply can’t consider these other expenses.  When people are excluded within a society, when they are not well educated and when they have a higher incidence of illness, there are negative consequences for society.  We all pay the price for poverty.  The increased cost on the health system, the justice system and other systems that provide supports to those living in poverty has an impact on our economy.

While much progress has been made in measuring and analyzing poverty, the World Bank Organization is doing more work to identify indicators for the other dimensions of poverty.  This work includes identifying social indicators to track education, health, access to services, vulnerability, and social exclusion.

There is no one cause of poverty, and the results of it are different in every case. Poverty varies considerably depending on the situation. Feeling poor in Canada is different from living in poverty in Russia or Zimbabwe.  The differences between rich and poor within the borders of a country can also be great.

Despite the many definitions, one thing is certain; poverty is a complex societal issue. No matter how poverty is defined, it can be agreed that it is an issue that requires everyone’s attention.  It is important that all members of our society work together to provide the opportunities for all our members to reach their full potential. It helps all of us to help one another .
