Should the western world decide the fate of other countries? Are we just so blind to other cultures and ways of living that we can't imagine any other way? The term WELFARE is way too common in our thinking. This film displays the 'law of unintended consequences' all too well, and seeks to show people those unintended effects from the western way of providing aid to poverty stricken areas of the world.

Solving Poverty: Innovative Strategies from Winnipeg’s Inner City

Solving Poverty: Innovative Strategies from Winnipeg’s Inner City by Jim Silver
English | January 10th, 2018 | ISBN: 1552668215 | 287 pages | EPUB | 1.00 MB

Poverty in Canada’s inner cities is deep, complex, racialized and often intergenerational. In this collection of essays published over the past decade, Jim Silver argues that urban poverty today includes not only low incomes, but in all too many cases also poor housing, poor health, low educational achievement, high levels of neighbourhood violence, racism, colonialism and social exclusion.
Poverty Trends in Germany and Great Britain: The Impact of Changes in Labour Markets, Families, and Social Policy

Poverty Trends in Germany and Great Britain: The Impact of Changes in Labour Markets, Families, and Social Policy By Jan Brülle
English | PDF | 2018 | 330 Pages | ISBN : 3658208910 | 2.74 MB

Jan Brülle shows how poverty risks in Germany between 1992 and 2012 increased concentrated on those with low educational levels, in lower occupational positions, and with precarious employment careers, as the country’s welfare state failed to adapt to widening inequalities in households’ market incomes. Contrasting the German experience with Great Britain, where social transfers to low-income families in concert with favourable labour market conditions helped to reduce poverty between 1992 and the global financial crisis, he presents the most comprehensive comparative study on poverty trends in these two countries to date. Moving beyond a cross-sectional perspective on poverty, the author analyses why it became not only more frequent in Germany, but also more persistent in individual life-courses, and why faster exits have driven the decline in poverty in Great Britain.
