Transcript

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