Personally I feel it all comes down to Education, poverty can be eliminated through providing the tools and resources for one to work with in order to generate food and fresh water. Yes it would be excellent if there was a small global tax pool, this would allow a start in further developments of fresh water wells, crop fields to be developed with the people then working on then, markets could then be established as a way to exchange and sell fresh fruit and vegetables. Again I feel people in third world countries truly want and desire and opportunity for a better life and they will work for it if the basic and absolute necessary tools are provided. What we call human nature is in fact human habit, they know no other way unfortunately and have no resources or tools to make change.. Short courses could also be implemented in horticulture once wells and crop fields are developed.. It's a start ;)
