      • Income level
      • World bank
      • $1 per person
    • Unequal Distribution of wealth
      • The income of richest 10% in the world equals to the income of the bottom 90%.
      • The rich are mostly concentrated on the US, Europe and Japan.
      • The richest 1% own 40% of the world’s wealth

      Distribution of wealth
    • The Cause of Poverty…
      unfair trade agreements, lack of technology and investment
      Work and globalization:
      • lacks communications and transport, factors that leads to a “globalized” economy
      people who live in poverty cannot afford to send their children to school, when they don’t know how to read and write they are disadvantaged.
      War or conflict
      basic services like education are disrupted. People become refugees. Crops are destroyed.
    • Rich Vs. Poor
      Poor People
      Rich People
      Less access to health, education, and other service
      Hunger, starvation, and disease bother the poorest in society
      Have little representation or voice in public and political debates
      Hard to escape poverty
      Benefit from economic or political policies
      Wealthy, financial bailouts, and more open to the public
      Poverty has always been presented
      The gap between rich and poor is quite high and often widening
    • Why Does It Matter?
      Rich-poor gap
      Over 3 billion people —less than $2.50 a day.
      Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names.
      1 billion children live in poverty (1 in 2 children in the world).
      25,000 people die every day of hunger or hunger-related causes (one person every three and a half seconds)
