I often think about the ways to eliminate poverty. One thing I have noticed that any effort to solve the problem does not work in entireity. Even though production has increased and there is an ability to provide more resources to people it does not seem to solve the problem. There are many reasons for this. Poor distribution, squandering wealth on non essentials but the main thing in my opinion and the thing that eliminates any increase in production is increased population. This is what I believe is the main source of all poverty. Overactive procreation. No matter how much you produce to eliminate poverty it will not help if there are more people. There is a level of personal responsibility to this and that is the main problem. Should all efforts to eliminate poverty be centred around population rates not welfare cheques?
