If every working person in the world gave one dollar every week, in no time we could extinguish poverty all over.
It is estimated that around the world an average of 64% is employed (at different pay scales of course) lets say an average of 20% can afford to give $1.00 a week ($4.00 a month). The population is currently at ~7 billion. That would give us about $1,400,000,000.00 per week ..
From there we can figure how much it would take to bring a family out of poverty and into a good economic range we can now calculate how long it would take to eliminate poverty all over.
I would like to see this but managed properly and independently of any Govt or interest groups. Just plain old, we all give a dollar and the people get that dollar.
