What are we ready to do to eradicate poverty?
Does our comfortable life depend on other people's poverty? A worker in Bangladesh is paid 18 cents per hour so we can have the clothes we need. Of course, retailers' profit margins can be up to 500% or more. Decide to pay more and/or companies to reduce their profits, would definitely help a lot with eradicating poverty, but are we willing to do it?
This is just an examples, of course, A more general question would be: are we ready to make sacrifices to eradicate poverty? If yes, what kind of sacrifices would you make (or maybe you made already)?
