Possible to eradicate poverty?
From the UN Millennium Development Goals Report 2007 I gathered that while the poorest in the world have become a little less poor, the gap between the rich and poor has increased in many places. The goals are not any different from year to year, but actions and level of awareness change from year to year...
A question is bothering many-- is it possible to eradicate poverty in the world? Many have offered quite plausible theories and proposed pretty good plans. But it seems poverty has become a simple by-product of human existence. Perhaps humans create it by virtue of their very existence... A dim observation to reckon with or to put up with.
