Reward Work, Not Wealth - Oxfam Briefing on Poverty - Jan 2018
In 2017, the wealth of the world's two thousand and forty-three billionaires increased by $762bn, enough to end extreme poverty seven times over. In the period between 2006 and 2015, ordinary workers saw their incomes rise by an average of just 2% a year, while billionaire wealth rose by nearly 13% a year – almost six times faster.

Oxfam's inequality mistake
in a free market individuals can only amass wealth by fulfilling the wants and needs of others. Work and trade does pay out for everyone involved.

siderea | Understanding Why Data on Social Determinants of Health...
"Over at HealthDataManagement, there's an article by Michael Cousins, PhD, titled "Why data on social determinants of health is growing in importance". This is an interesting article because it is about healthcare and public policy, but its intended audience is healthcare IT people. This is what somebody wants the techies working in healthcare to believe about healthcare.

"So I thought I would share it with you... translating as we go. And, of course, with some commentary.


""Value-based care" is class-based care. It means that services are provided to patients when what economic lack keeps them from having (whatever is defined as) a good treatment outcome is as small as possible."

Why Haiti Is So Hopeless; And A Very Modest Proposal | VDARE - premier news outlet for patriotic immigration reform
Haiti`s Malthusian poverty is the default state of mankind. Its rapidly growing population is kept fed by the more than 10,000 foreign charitable organizations active in the country.

Commentators have been competing to come up with ever more complex explanations for “Why Haiti Is So Poor“. The single most important cause is probably that Haiti attained its independence as early as 1805, culminating in a massacre of the remaining whites, before the end of the slave trade. Despite theoretically being a French-speaking, Roman Catholic, Western Hemisphere country, Haiti remains culturally rooted in Africa. Wikipedia`s article on the History of Haiti notes [January 17, 2010]:

Why is liberal California the poverty capital of America? - LA Times
Self-interest in the social-services community may be at fault. As economist William A. Niskanen explained back in 1971, public agencies seek to maximize their budgets, through which they acquire increased power, status, comfort and security. To keep growing its budget, and hence its power, a welfare bureaucracy has an incentive to expand its “customer” base. With 883,000 full-time-equivalent state and local employees in 2014, California has an enormous bureaucracy. Many work in social services, and many would lose their jobs if the typical welfare client were to move off the welfare rolls.
