How to control the damage or worse situation after the disaster?

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 - 11:22pm

You can't really control the poverty line because there will always people who fall under the majority income. If everyone had the same amount of money, no one is really rich or poor. If everyone was given a million dollars, the poverty standard would increase along with it. Therefore, coming to a solution towards this problem isn't a one way fix. It is very complicated and has multiple different perspectives that go about it.
