The understanding of poverty is a very essential key in unlocking the core questions that have thrown people into states of confusion, misunderstanding and war. Why would people push back into the waters a whale that is washed ashore in one part of the world while the whale gets butchered in other climes? Why would any refuse to embezzle the money meant for constructing a community health center that will provide essential health services to a people while another will even build more from his personal affluence? What perpetuates poverty?... it's a study like none has done before. I thank the team at Harvard.
