My political viewpoint on global poverty is that political instability and corruption contribute greatly to poverty in many countries.

 For poverty to end, we need companies and other entities to invest in countries.  They will not want to do this when the country’s government is unstable.  They would fear that something like a revolution would destroy the value of their investment.  Therefore, we need political instability to defeat global poverty.

 At the same time, though, we need to end political corruption.  When we have countries’ leaders simply enriching themselves rather than helping their people, we cannot end poverty.  Politically, then, we need stability and good government in order to have a chance to end global poverty.
