Spreading the Wealth

In Uncategorized on April 25, 2009 at 11:04 pm

I don’t think anyone would disagree with the notion that “poverty is an issue that negatively impacts the entire world”.  For decades, numerous countries come together under various organizations (such as the United Nations) in hope to putting an end to this worldwide dilemma.  I think it is wonderful that the United States, among other countries, aids developing nations in fighting poverty.  While I do not disagree that the United States should globalize its efforts to fight poverty, I do feel that America’s ability to end poverty amongst its “own” is inhibited when it offers so much financial assistance to others.  Let me reiterate—there is absolutely nothing wrong with America aiding other nations in my opinion.  I think it is admirable, not to mention that various countries assist us in other various capacities.  So what do you think…should America continue to “spread the wealth” to other countries…does aiding other countries truly limit America’s ability to end poverty for its own citizens…would it be moral for America to stop providing an abundance of financial resources to nations abroad?
