The idea that poverty is disappearing is rubbish. Places that were never considered poor are showing signs of increasing poverty within their borders, on the other hand the rich are getting richer, so the divide between the two is growing.

Think the UN is on CRACK. They're on their yachts cruising instead of facing the GRIM reality that poverty is getting worse each year. Thanks Nils

"Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings..."
(Nelson Mandela, who spent 27 years in prison for the right to vote)

Just goes to show you what happens when you don't have "base numbers" or revised them for whatever political reasons you judge important.
