The paper discusses how poverty in great numbers naturally came with the development of larger communities and has worsened as many have not enjoyed the impact of economic expansion. The paper asserts that poverty cannot be eradicated until there is agreement on the underlying causes of the problem. The paper focuses on the views of John Kenneth Galbraith who believed eliminating poverty required different strategies in an especially diverse community of nations. The paper contends that it is difficult to imagine that poverty could not be eradicated; the question is whether enough people truly want to end poverty. The paper concludes that those individuals who like the status quo must understand that the "status quo" will ultimately destroy everyone--rich and poor alike.
