In this short and to-the-point blog post, David Rudd looks at ‘income equality’ not from the point of bashing those on the top and complaining about how they should give all their resources to those on the bottom.
Rather, he frames the discussion in a way that we probably have not seen enough of. By suggesting three questions and inviting us to dialogue around those questions to hopefully find solutions or at least the beginning of them in the quest to create a fairer world.
1 – How might we enable the poor to improve their lives and earning potential?
2 – How might we protect against those who would gain wealth through fraud, deception or abuse?
3- How might we encourage all people to generously care for those around them?
We would LOVE to hear your thoughts on any one of those, or even all three. In fact, perhaps you are even feeling inspired enough to write a whole blog post answering them [if you do this, please won’t you send on the link to us].
How about it? What practical and realistic [or even totally way out crazy-sounding] ideas do you have to help address the reality of Poverty that we see in the world around us?
