3) Poverty is nose-diving
The rich get richer, but the poor do get better. Between 1980 and 2000, the poor doubled their consumption. The Chinese are ten times richer and live about 25 years longer than they did 50 years ago. Nigerians are twice as rich and live nine times longer. The percentage of the world’s people living in absolute poverty has dropped by over half. The United Nations estimates that poverty was reduced more in the last 50 years than in the previous 500. (Readers Digest 04/12 pg.151)
