How do people view global poverty?

Expert Answers

There is no one way in which people view global poverty. In light of this, let me give you a few pespectives. 

First, some people view poverty as a tragedy, as there is enough to go around to eradicate global poverty. In light of this, they might want the governments of the world to do more. 

Second, people who are undergoing the poverty of which we speak might feel anger that the cards are stacked against them or a feeling of hopelessness, as they might be trying to get ahead with little help. 

Still others might feel that the problem is getting worse in view of the global economic melt down. As you probably know, debt is a huge issue in our world. What makes this even worse is that we are dealing with sovereign debt.
