Poverty and Human Rights. Our world is today very far from this ideal.
Poverty and Human Rights. Piecing together the current global record, we find that most of the current massive underfulfillment of human rights is more or less directly connected to poverty. The connection is direct in the case of basic social and economic human rights, such as the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of oneself and one’s family, including food, clothing, housing, and medical care.
World Poverty and Human . .has been added to your Cart. Pogge's gift is to recognize as imaginary the boundariesbetween economics and ethics. A striking example is thehistorically derived and currently dysfunctional way we applypatents for medicines. With simplicity and clarity, Pogge offers ananalysis without villains, a remedy without losers and a practicalpath to fundamental reform.

However huge in human terms, the world poverty problem is tiny economically. Thomas Pogge seeks to explain how this belief is sustained
However huge in human terms, the world poverty problem is tiny economically. Just 1 percent of the national incomes of the high-income countries would suffice to end severe poverty worldwide. Thomas Pogge seeks to explain how this belief is sustained.

Thomas Pogge's book seeks to explain how this belief is sustained. Part social science, part philosophy, World Poverty and Human Rights thoroughly outlines why citizens of the developed world have an ethical duty to help the global poor and makes modest policy recommendations to alleviate their maladies.

Pogge, Thomas (2002) World Poverty and Human Rights: Cosmopolitan Responsibilities and Reforms. Cambridge: Polity Press. Pogge, Thomas (2004) ‘The First UN Millennium Development Goal: A Cause for Celebration?’, Journal of Human Development 5 (3): 377-397. This question is distinct from the question I raise in my book-namely, whether present citizens of the affluent countries, in collusion with the ruling elites of most poor countries, are harming the global poor.
This is where Thomas Pogge's extraordinary book on world poverty takes over. We must, Pogge says, stop thinking about global justice solely in terms of helping the poor. The poor need to be helped because of the injustices we inflict upon them. The sick and starving of the world are not merely dying, Pogge says. We are killing them, and we are killing them in huge numbers. Pogge criticizes the subsidies and trade barriers in rich countries that disable the economies of poor countries, and which the rich countries insist on in the WTO by using their vastly superior bargaining power. Nor is he impressed by the "voluntary" nature of the WTO.
