What causes poverty in Libya?
It is obvious. Poverty in Libya is caused due to the leadership of its Muamaar Khadaffy. Khadaffy was in power for over 40 years to squander the oil wealth of the country. He closed off education, killed political dissenters, consorted with terrorists all over the world, and neglected to think for the welfare of his people. It is uncommon for one person to rule over a country for so many years and still has nothing to show for his leadership.

Understanding global poverty involves stepping back from theinfinite variety of circumstantial misfortune experienced athousehold level. A vantage point of history will observe that mostpoor countries were vassals of the great colonial powers of the19th and 20th centuries. The exit strategies pursue…d in grantingindependence cemented geographical boundaries that were inspiredmore by the politics of empire than the creation of new nationstates. Too many countries found themselves lacking a critical massof resources or population, landlocked, or seething withirreconcilable ethnic division. A significant proportion of globalpoverty exists in war-torn and post-conflict countries. The newlyindependent countries also lacked capacity to punch their weight ininternational negotiations. This has been most apparent in theevolution of global trade rules which have prevented them fromreproducing proven models of industrialization. Agriculture hasbeen similarly impeded by massive subsidies available to US andEuropean farmers. The consequence has been inability to break freeof the shackles of the colonial economic model which dependslargely on the export of natural resources. Control over domesticdevelopment strategies has also been hampered by conditions forconcessionary grants and loans. Designed to create macroeconomicstability, these have cut back state activity and impeded theprovision of education, health, social safety nets andopportunities for work. It has to be said that many governmentshave been the architects of their own misfortunes.Self-perpetuating kleptomaniac governance has drained economicgrowth through corruption politics. Weak democracy perverts theallocation of resources, most apparent in African government'sfailure to meet their own commitment to invest in agriculture, thecore need of the vast majority of their populations. The broaderlack of institutional capacity and infrastructure hinders deliveryof aid programs and business investment alike. Population growthplaces great demands on poverty reduction programs but it is not anunderlying cause of poverty. Rich countries have themselves emergedsuccessfully from periods of high population growth that coincidedwith industrial development. Answer This is a matter of opinion. Here are some, in no particular order: . Unemployment . Poor health . Counterproductive lifestyle choices . Natural disasters . Exploitation of resources . Inefficient and self serving government policies . Insurrection and war . Poor education . Teen parenthood . Lack of opportunities available . Excessive population . Dishonesty . Materialism . Being a child or being elderly Answer Some main causes of poverty are natural disasters, exploitation ofresources, inefficient and self serving government policies, andinsurrection and war. Other important causes of poverty are pooreducation, teen parenthood, lack of opportunities available, andbeing a child or being elderly. Answer The main thing which is causing poverty is money being given outunfairly. Many people who are living in poverty cannot go touniversity and get a job which can pay for things because they haveno money to keep them there at university. Also, how some people(e.g government) are being cruel and giving people interest ontheir bills or mortgage. The world is not a fair place and we haveto try to make it fair for everyone. (MORE)
No, other way around. Poverty causes crime. If you don't have enough, you feel like there's injustice. Why do others have what you cannot? Once people get bitter enough (or desperate enough because they need food and money to feed and clothe themselves/their families), they commit crimes.
Poverty is a "relative" term and commonly referred to the material sense, in the case of Sabah. Sabah is actually rich (culture, raw materials, etc). But, because the distribution of these richness is not efficient, you would have your "poverty". Efficiency is low because the information that is ne…eded to manage those richness has not been understood. Hence, Sabah is in poverty because there is a strong censor on information particularly about property rights. (MORE)
In countrys like Canada we do not have extreme poverty because we have lots of non renuewable resources which other countries will pay a lot for. This means that there are many good jobs to offer.

\nPoverty in South America is primarily perceived as an urban phenomenon as 70% of the population live in cities. But in the rural areas poverty has become a more problematic issue. The indigenous peasants are the poorest people. The poverty is caused due to many reasons mainly unequal distribution …of wealth. \n. \nPoverty in South America is also a result of migration, internal conflicts and structural adjustments. In spite of having most of the natural resources South America is the home of the miserably poor people. Colonialism is not the soul reason behind this poverty. Higher fertility is one of the causes behind the Poverty of South America. \n. \nSouth America Poverty is becoming a threat to social and political stability as well as public security. Drug addiction is a result of this poverty. It is also leading to environmental issues. To solve this problem is one of the major duties of the government, which needs international help n this matter. The food supply capacity is inadequate. This can affect the international economy and environment on a global scale. \n. \nSome of the following measures should be followed to recover Poverty in South America\nThe disparities should be corrected by providing support for poverty control.\nCollaboration with the Japanese descendants, Nikkei communities.\nSolving the environmental problems.\nTrade promotion measures should be taken.\nRegional integration should be given importance.\nIntra-regional cooperation should be address.\nProper management of natural resources are required.\nFood-producing capacity should be maintained and improved.\nTo find a permanent solution to this problem of Poverty in South America Poverty in South America government should take all necessary measures. This problem is not only affecting the countries but the world. So solving this issue has been a great challenge to humanity.\n. \n. \nhttp://www.mapsofworld.com/south-america/information/poverty-in-south-america.html (MORE)

The causes of poverty in the Philippines are varied. One of the main causes is government corruption. Organizations like the Philippine Aid Society (www.philippineaid.org) are always working to reduce poverty in the Philippines. . There are many possible causes for poverty in the Philippines and it…'s hard to speculate. One cause could be the relatively recent industrialization. Climate may even be a factor. About 20 typhoons hit the Philippines each year - so when you spend so many public resources on repairing natural damage, it's hard to build infrastructure. But undoubtedly the number one reason for poverty in the Philippines is government corruption. You see this in every country where corruption is commonplace. I'm more inclined to ask what can be done to fight the poverty in the Philippines rather than what is the cause. My organization, Philippine Aid Society, does just that. -Tim Troutman www.philippineaid.org (MORE)
Draught which causes crop failure on monumental scale. War can also be devastating to the population of a country or geographical area. The hardest hit are the economically challenged. A government or leader that victimizes it's citizens can also be a cause of extreme poverty.
Yes because there current leader is taking the important needs to live and is giving the people of Libya a hard time.
The Philippines is poor because we are poor (we do not have enough resources for infrastructure, for basic social services, and to collect taxes and to spend wisely because of corruption) and because we are not "smart" - we have high transactions costs and we do not know how to industrialize. In ad…dition, the authors claim that we have a Freudian desire to remain poor. They state: "The constraints on economic development are not purely economic. There are other 'deep parameters' that affect economic performance. Lack of social cohesion, spotty entrepreneurship, and the inability to establish a credible and selfless political leadership are among the challenges that the Philippines faces today. There is a degree of inconsistency between how religion affects society and capitalist development in the Philippines. Meanwhile, long-held social values, such as ningas cogon (an old Filipino expression, which literally means 'grass flash-fire', referring to cogon dry grass which blazes furiously when set alight, but only for a few minutes before turning to cold ashes), have adversely affected economic growth in less tangible ways." Somehow, I cannot believe this analysis. It seems too defeatist, even if superficially correct. It plays into the arguments of the aid institutions (ADB, WB) and macro "guardians" (IMF staff) that the Filipino people or their leaders are too dumb or unwilling to know how to take care of themselves. On the economic merits, the analysis of the authors does not take into account the failure of markets (in some areas) and of institutions (in other areas). Although this critique seems a variant of "we're not smart," it at least points to where we can do something about why we are poor. We can promote markets and free entry to break up entrenched quasi-monopolies or quasi-cartels, we can fix the institutional failures in the land and labor markets, and we can harness the deep motivations that cause Filipinos to go "OW." (Why, for example, do OFWs earn well abroad, but not in the country?) I submit that the reason we can't seem to see through our noses stems from the blinders of very simple neoclassical economics that do not take into account the institutional failures that stunt economic growth. In addition, we have taken advice from the international financial institutions at face value or at lip service, without actively questioning the bases for such advice. For example, if you've been inside the World Bank as long as Bill Easterly, you will know that much of advice from Washington simply serves to perpetuate aid and loan dependency, and does little to promote economic development. If we engaged in constructive dialogue with these institutions, we may well realize that, given their entrenched and often ignorant ways (one-size fits all models, for example), we are better off designing home-grown solutions based on a deeper understanding of how economics affects institutions and how the latter affect economic performance.

Poverty in Pakistan. Pakistan is a poor country. Its economy is facing fluctuations now a day.

Due to the hardships which accompany poverty, crime is sometimes a direct result of impoverishment. For example, a family may not be able to purchase groceries because of low income occupations which are not enough for the basic necessities a family requires for survival. Therefore, for the sake of …feeding his or her family, a parent may steal food from a grocery store in desperation. However, while some crimes committed as a result of poverty have understandable reasons behind them, people also commit crimes with selfish intentions. If an individual with an addiction to cigarettes or alcohol is low on money, he or she may resort to holding up a convenient store in order to gain the money he or she "needs" in order to acquire the items that make the person happy. Therefore, crime is definitely linked to poverty. (MORE)

The moral stance of the Society of HumanKind on social difference in human society rests on the Principles of Unity and Peace. Those Principles, and other implications of the Axioms and Dogma, are applied to this aspect of our social lives in the Treatise on the Individual. The Treatise dismisses th…e possibility that social difference is natural to the human condition or inherent in our species. The conclusion must be that such differences as do exist in our societies, whether based on standing, status, power or on any other criterion, are a consequence of our own actions, or of our inability to control all those factors in our environment that have an influence on our social life. The uncertainty of all human knowledge and understanding, set out in the Treatise on Knowledge, reinforces that conclusion. The limit on our ability to understand ourselves, or grasp all that affects us in our environment described in that Treatise is such that it leaves open the possibility that we may never be able to determine fully, or control effectively, the structure and outcome of our relationships with each other. In effect, the Treatise suggests that we may not have the faculties or abilities required to eliminate difference between individuals within our societies. In sum, the first founding book of the Society, the 'Foundations', rejects difference between individuals as an inherent or natural condition of human society while accepting that it may nevertheless be unavoidable. However, 'Foundations' does not then go on to discuss the question raised by that conclusion, i.e. that of the attitude of the Society toward that aspect of our social order where it exists. That issue is examined in this Essay. It is best to begin the discussion by repeating the inference drawn from the Axioms, Dogma and Principles in the Treatise on the Individual. Acceptance of the Axioms and choice of the Dogma removes the possibility of there being any necessary correlation between the social position of an individual and their merit or value. The Society will reject any implicit judgement of the worth of any individual based on their occupation of any particular position in our social hierarchy during life. Final adjudication on that issue must always be deferred to the period beyond the achievement of the Objective of the Dogma. However, as has already been noted, that stance does not address the problem of the attitude the Society of HumanKind and its membership should take toward social difference. In particular, it provides no advice or guidance on whether they should tolerate hierarchical systems of social relationships or willingly accept any social position other than one of their own choosing. To the first of those issues the Principle of Progress applies. It requires adherents of the Society to accept the need for a level of social order which is compatible with the maintenance of the Conditions of the Dogma, a demand also directly derived from an acceptance of the Axioms and choice of the Dogma. When the effect of the Principle of Unity is added to that of Progress it is clear that social difference can properly be tolerated by those who choose the Dogma. The Society and its adherents can therefore accept such distinctions where they can be seen to be necessary to maintain the level of social order required by the Conditions of the Objective of the Dogma and the Aim of the Society. If however, human society ever progresses to the point at which social difference is no longer necessary for those purposes then, at that moment, all followers of the Dogma, and thus every adherent of the Society of HumanKind, will cease to regard difference and disadvantage as justified. They will come to that conclusion even if those features of our society remain unavoidable due to our inability, identified by the Treatise on Knowledge, to effect the changes in our social structures that would finally remove them. That stance of the Society has a consequence for the second issue raised earlier - that of the attitude of members of the Society to their own social position. While social distinctions and disadvantages do remain either necessary or unavoidable to the maintenance of the Conditions of the Dogma, they must be endured by all who choose the Aim of the Society. That requirement on adherents to the Society arises from the Principle 3.2. Every adherent of the Society of HumanKind should therefore be prepared to accept and tolerate whatever social position it falls to them occupy in life. However, that tolerance should not preclude them from striving to change or improve their social standing or advantage, provided always that they do not breach the Principle of Peace in consequence. The Society requires all its adherents to confine any self-serving effort they may make to improve their own lot strictly within the limits set by their overriding obligation to discharge their Responsibility to further its Aim. Which, in simple terms, means that they should not put the stability of our social order at risk by any attempt they may make to change their social, political or economic standing. By an extension of that individual precept it follows that the only acceptable justification for any purposeful effort by the Society as a whole to change a pattern of hierarchical relationships, or the social structures that support such distinctions within any human society, arises from its obligation to pursue its Aim. Only the pursuit of that vital purpose will allow the Society, in rare and unusual circumstances, to seek to use its authority to bring about a change in the degree of difference or disadvantage as between individuals or groups within any community. Even then such action by the Society should only emerge as an incidental adjunct to actions designed and clearly intended to achieve its Aim or discharge its Responsibility to its successors. The negative form of that argument can be set out to reinforce the point being made. None of the exceptions mentioned in this Essay will justify a forceful change in either the position of an individual or the structure of any society when it is undertaken solely for the purpose of increasing, removing or reducing social difference as such. The limitation on the range of choice available to the Society in these matters is set by the Principle of Progress. The Society and its adherents should always tolerate an unjust or unequal social system, or a position of personal disadvantage, rather than risk our future by unnecessarily tampering with the continued stability of the society on which our survival and progress, and hence the achievement of the Aim of the Society, depends. It will be apparent that the privileged in any particular social system will more easily accept these restrictions and requirements than those who may be disadvantaged by them. It is on the poor and dispossessed of our communities, however that disadvantage may be defined, that the weight of the discipline of the Principles will fall most heavily, a burden which will be especially irksome to adherents of the Society who may find themselves amongst the disadvantaged. They will clearly appreciate that their endurance and tolerance will benefit, not simply themselves, but equally those who might seem to be their oppressors. They will know that the whole of humanity will be the beneficiaries if their sufferings contribute to a realisation of the Aim of the Society. What comfort then, can the Society of HumanKind offer the poor? First, the Society can support the disadvantaged by an affirmation and proclamation of the moral credit they gain by their endurance of suffering during life for the benefit of others. The Society will value their patience under an unjust imbalance in human society, recognising and appreciating it as a proper effort to discharge their wider obligation to protect the Conditions of the Dogma. It will acknowledge and proclaim that their tolerance of disadvantage contains an element of altruism and self-sacrifice that justifies a position of moral superiority by the poor over their more fortunate fellows. Secondly, the Society can comfort the disadvantaged by placing a constant injunction on all its more fortunate members to honour and respect the enduring poor, and always have in mind their sacrifice made for us all. The outward expression of that obligation must be an acknowledgement by all adherents that they should give thanks to the poor for their endurance in foregoing all the comforts, benefits and securities available in our present social life in order to allow the whole of humanity to gain the apotheosis which will follow a realisation of the Aim of the Society of HumanKind. However, the Society and its members should not otherwise ignore the suffering of the poor, nor fail to mitigate their privations in ways that do not conflict with the maintenance of a social order permissible under the Principle of Progress. The Principle of Peace imposes a general injunction on the Society that it should foster the full development of every individual as a requirement for the achievement of the Objective of the Dogma, and hence the realisation of its Aim. Accordingly, the Society is under as clear an obligation never to forget the poor, nor ever cease to have their individual welfare, progress and development in mind, as it is to promote and protect the stability of our society. All an application of the Principle of Progress to this question implies is that the concern of the Society for the improvement of the conditions of the poor should always be limited by the need to protect the social stability and continuity on which the survival and progress of our species depend. There are some difficult distinctions to be made here, and much for the Councils and Committees of the Society to ponder. Finally, the poor for their part should draw comfort from the teachings of the Society in the Treatise on Morality and elsewhere, on the subject of our salvation and our life following the realisation of its Aim. From that source will come an understanding that to endure a life of poverty and privation in life is to accumulate wealth and standing in our immortal epoch, when all the moral debts and credits of our mortal era can be fully and finally reconciled.
