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 observ…e that mostpoor countries were vassals of the great colonial powers of the19th and 20th centuries. The exit strategies pursued 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.

I've been to Yemen for a business trip and I was shocked to see the poverty in Yemen. Some people (rich people) in Yemen eat other people's money. Also the government need… A LOT of money to renew 1 city , i can't imagine the whole town
Purely in Economic context, yes, poverty can set off a vicious circle, culminating in even more poverty. It goes something like this : Poverty > Less Income > Less Consumptio…n > Low Consumption Expenditure > Low Revenue for firms > Lesser Production > Lesser Income for Factor Inputs > Poverty Therefore, this vicious circle will keep on incrementing. This can be prevented by suitable injections of capital investment by governments to increase availability of credit in the economy.

Began February 15, 2011: They want a democratic government, they are tired of living under autocratic regimes.
The people of libya are tired of the current president Gadalffi and have gone on strike..
The regime of Moamar Gadhafi (or Kadafi, spellings vary) has been murdering large numbers of people in Libya who have been protesting against his dictatorial rule. Sanctions a…re designed to make it harder for him to continue to do this.
It is quite simple really. The libyans didn't like being bossed around, they saw on TV that all the other countries have more freedom, and they wanted the same.
It wasn't a war, more an uprising. Gaddafi was the dictator of Libya. Many people didn't like him. There was an uprising in Tunisia which overthrew their leader. Many other …countries followed this example and started their own uprising
