Fight To Reduce Poverty And Media
I think, today, the fight to reduce poverty must be extended from the legal level to the attitudinal level.

Author: Kamala B. Sarup

Published in Scoop Media. I think, today, the fight to reduce poverty must be extended from the legal level to the attitudinal level. It will succeed only by elaborate campaigns through Media. Poverty writers will help these campaigns by writing convincingly for the general public. Reducing Poverty through the media is the way to win the war on poverty.

The role of the Media in every sector of the society is more important when system fail, it is the media that plays the lead role and comes forward to lead the society for the better future.

Poverty produces inadequate food, clothing, shelter and medicine. To get more money to poor people, welfare reformists must spend more time and money using the media to change attitudes toward poverty instead of writing about it in obscure academic journals. This switch in emphasis would reduce the reluctance of people to pay more to reduce poverty levels.

So to solutions for reducing the high poverty, welfare reformers prefer to change the behavior of poor rather than give more resources to poor. So it is very important we should advocate the tax reduction for poor. Such support would enable the poor family to go out and find a work.

Still more people from developing countries are falling into deep poverty where incomes are only one-half of the poverty income level. Lifts a far smaller proportion of low-income families out of poverty in comparison to other countries. Other causes of high poverty, are the failure of wages of younger workers.

The low income levels of poor families. Another important aspect of poverty solutions that we should prefer to ignore are the costs associated with social programs.An estimate of the cost-benefit ratios of various poverty reducing plans and policies is convincing people to bear it. So I think media is always needed for leading the social movement because strong media is the foundation of development and creation of a just and equitable society. Media should rally for bigger social transformation.

Media also can help bring about drastic and conceptual changes. So, media will need to organize poverty reduction program. Media also can be organized by external actors such as NGOs, regional or international organizations and understanding.
