Which country do you think has highest rate of POVERTY?

poverty - Human development is about much more than the rise or fall of national incomes. It is about creating an environment in which people can develop their full potential and lead productive, creative lives in accord with their needs and interests. People are the real wealth of nations. Development is thus about expanding the choices people have to lead lives that they value. And it is thus about much more than economic growth, which is only a means—if a very important one—of enlarging people’s choices.

The highest poverty rate in the western world is the US believe it or not. http://www.commondreams.org/views04/0705-12.htm Its pretty sad if you ask me. But its true and I think the reason is because of the unequal wealth distribution and politicians siding with big business. Don't forget inflation without the raise of minimum wage and tax breaks for the wealthy. Its really just plain unfair.
