The causes of Poverty

We need to find and change the root causes of poverty rather than simply treating
the symptoms, said Mr Mohan Philip, of the Adarsh Rashtriya Party, at the Geneva Institute of Leadership and Public Policy.

According to him, one part of poverty is due to poor political leadership, or a case of those in power only looking outfor themselves.

Another part of it is simply the nature of organizations – an institution may begin with good intentions, but people with vested interests will soon take over, leading to corruption.

Then, when there is rampant oppression of the poor, they might even become willing to start armed revolution.

That can only be prevented if the leaders provide justice that is equitable, distributive, and restorative. Sphere: Related Content
