Poverty An AnalysisIntroductionEven in this highly advanced world, it is sad to say that for the majority of this worlds people and nations, poverty is still a rampart disease. Poverty is the state of having little to no money and goods or even the means of support. Absolute poverty refers to the state where one is lacking even the basic necessities of life, for example, water, sanitation, food, clothes and shelter. Whereas relative poverty refers to economic inequality, that is a standard that is defined within a society; the difference of living standard between people in the same community. Relative poverty is measured by as a relationship to the overall consumption in a country (Feng & Ngyuen, 2014).The causes of poverty have remained a long term debate. According to some poverty is caused by ones own laziness. That the poor refuse to consider their future and engage in self destructive behavior. While others believe that the poor have just given themselves up to poverty, that they believe it to be their fate. But this is the stereotypic cause of poverty. Some sociologists believe that poverty is caused by minimum wages or lack of education. While others believe that the main cause of poverty is the shifting of the jobs from the cities into the suburbs which in turn limits the job opportunities for the poor people inside the cities. A definite cause has yet to be decided upon.Poverty not only affects the current generation, the effects would last
