Slums

  1. 1. Planet Of SlumsMike Davis<br />By<br />Alyssa Helmuth <br />
  2. 2. A Growing World of Poverty<br />A majority of our worlds population lives in poverty, oppressed, dispossessed, and starving.<br />78.2 percent of underdeveloped countries cities consist of slums. <br />There are already two hundred thousand slums worldwide, and they will soon be the blue prints for cities. <br />Instead of people living in the ritzy pieces of the cities, they will be living in the slums rotting in their own massive wastes. <br />
  3. 3. The Start of Something Terrible<br />The cities that Davis examines and studies are not the traditional cities that American citizens are use to seeing.<br />These cities consist of dumps of human and their wastes.<br />Child prostitution and child labor are norms in these areas<br />Sanitation and water is a very rare thing for the people of these slums to witness. <br />Gangs are at the top of the class controlling everyone around them.<br />This is just the start, our world has much more to see with the decrease in societies. <br />
  4. 4. Congo<br />One of the areas that Davis studies is the city of Kinshasa in Congo. <br />Formal economy and state institutions have collapsed. <br />Average income has fallen to under a hundred dollars per year. <br />One in five is HIV positive and many people are unable to afford healthcare<br />Due to the low income people are unable to afford healthcare and resort to magic. <br />
  5. 5. Cause of this Dismay<br />The massive population transfer from a country to a large city is one reason. <br />There was a massive transfer of wealth from Third World to the First orchestrated by North American and European states.<br />The inability of cities to provide jobs for the massive populations living within them. <br />“Urbanization without growth”<br />Last but not least the rise of neoliberalism. <br />
