Poverty means, the state of being extremely poor. The poor people are people who can barely keep a living. Poor people have a hard time maintaining a reasonable financial stance in this corrupt system. Being poor is not unusual in low income places. For example i see poor people all the time, most poor people are homeless but, a person doesn't have to be homeless to be poor. Simply by having no money makes you poor.

I agree with you Andrew, there is poor people everywhere because that is what the system has created. Do you think that poverty will one day end or will continue for ever? . Is the help that the government gives to those in need enough? or does it just make it worse?

My personal definition of poverty is scarcity and conditions of having little such as money and support. The word poor to me means worse than is usual, expected, or desirable; of a low standard or quality. Poor and poverty are different in my opinion because being poor is not having sufficient and poverty is no way out its suffering and leading to death .According to The number of people living in poverty in 2012 (46.5 million) is the largest number seen in the 54 years for which poverty estimates have been published. This means many people are suffering from scarcity and many programs help these people it is very sad many mothers and fathers don't have enough money or resources they also die leaving their kids behind.

Poverty is having little to no money to get what you need to survive. Half of the worlds population is living in poverty. There is no age,gender,or ethnicity to being poor. For example in 2003 10.6 million children died from poverty before reaching the age 5 or roughly 29,000 children per day.

A huge amount of the worlds population is living in absolute poverty. The majority of middle class is being affected in poverty because we are living a life of working class. People do not have the minimum requirements for a basic living. For example in shelter: Kids who live in places with more than four people to a room, adults who live in places with more than 3 people to a room , or adults/ children in places with no floors . Another example is education , children and teens have no access to education.

Poverty is when you don't hvae access to many things due to there being very little to share amoung everyone. In a way poverty is an example of scarcity because those who live in poverty lack the resouces of those who don't. For example the quality of education in South Central LA is far worse than those who live in Beverly Hills due to the fact that the kids in places such as Beverly Hills have access tablet and other electronics to help advance their learning experience but those who live in South Central LA have books that are worn out and are lucky if the books are unharmed. Why do who people who live in South Central LA have such a disadvantage? Well mostly due to the reason that South Central LA is a place of poverty.

Poverty means to not have enough opportunities with no support. Poverty is a form of scarcity because there are people who don't have access to supplies needed to survive. Poverty is usually known the people from lower class. These people have low income, which have less opportunities in obtaining any goods. I think there's a difference of the world poverty and being poor because poverty is those who can hardly survive because of their low income. Then there's the poor who can survive by having the supplies needed for example, food water, house, clothes, etc. But still struggle the situation in having a stable job. According to the article Poverty Overview the government helps the people who have a low income by providing welfare, which a form to end poverty. The article states,"In 2011, just over one billion people lived on less than $1.25 a day." Therefore, poverty is a big issue and the government should provide more help to those in need.

My definition of poverty is not being able to afford or not having the things you want. It also means not having enough to live off of. Poverty can also mean scarcity because one can have so many desires/want but have limited access to obtain them. I believe that the poor are the ones that struggle to obtain a good salary, a good living. They are the people that struggle everyday to put food on their table, and afford everything they need.

poverty is the state of being extremely poor. the poor are the people that are barely making a living on a small amount of money that they have. poor people also have a hard time maintaining the small amount of finance that they make.

I agree with you because I also said poverty is not having enough for basic needs. I would also like to add people who live check to check and suddenly loose their jobs may be considered poor because they would not have enough for basic needs.

To me poverty is living in a community where everything that surrounds it is put there specifically for the poor. Poverty is also not being able to afford basic living expenses. For example, fat, cheap food that can be afforded but is unhealthy. Fast food restaurants located in low income communities are there to make money. They know that the poor will buy their food for being all they can afford.

I think free market is better. Becuase the have the free space and they will get rewarded like command the dont get reward for there hard work.So that why i think there better chances for free market. and command is very crual to people becuase the do not get rewarded for hard work.

I believe poverty is not having enough money for basic needs. These basic needs include water, food, and shelter. You can use a specific number like under 20,000 a year but it has to change from place to make sure its not too low. I believe that some people are not making enough money but still arent considered poor because they make too much. The poor are people who do not have enough to afford these basic needs. Moreover, they tend to be more people of color. This was my biggest surprise while researching the poor
