Educational plays a vital role in life. I think that the main course of poverty is education followed by laziness and fear of failing.

Keneth – I don’t agree with you that education is the cause of poverty. First of all, first make a comparison in poverty levels between the educated and the uneducated. Of course people who are not educated take the day. To me, I’d say that, poor planning or even lack of planning by the government is the major cause for poverty among people.

Poverty isn’t caused by one thing but usually a whole bunch of factor. Things like low pay, not enough jobs, high living costs. Sure poor or lack of education can play a part in some situations but not every one

Lack of education cannot be the main cause of poverty. That should be a minor cause.

In my opinion ,the main cause of poverty is incapable government. Incapable government cannot provide education good and quality to all its citizen’s. Incapable government cannot create many jobs which will lead many of the citizens got job, With proper education and job oppucinity quality of life will improve. More housing projects, transportation system and healthcare needed to support educated earning person.

Obviously, distribution of wealth and resources in the world is not flat. In other words, 2% of people control 98% of wealth. All other reasons for emergence of poverty should be placed within this context.

The root causes of poverty are in the mind of the poor. If people think poorly, they will remain poor unless they change the way they think. They are poor because they let their poor situation dictate their mind to think of poverty and limitations. Then, their life unfolds exactly the same way their thinking goes.

I suppose the situation slaves find themselves in is because of their poor thinking.

There are many factors that cause the poverty. Lack of knowledge, laziness, poor planning, government, lack of opportunity, jobs.
Laziness itself play an important role but can not be considered too enough to cause the poverty. Many Hard working person are poor even though they never give up trying. Most educated person are also poor, ……

Throughout human history people who were dispossessed of their land became poor instantly. They became poor not by choice; not because they were lazy and not because they were uneducated or stupid, but because a more powerful force rendered them landless.
Poor people did not choose to become poor, circumstances beyond their control put them in poverty. Unequal opportunities, dispossessions, scams and natural disasters to name just a few.

I don’t agree that education is the main cause of poverty, although it plays an important role to become rich, or having a good financial situation. It’s not the cause of poverty.
Many people are uneducated but are rich and financially free than some people whom went to school and got higher degrees(Masters, licences, professor,…). I have seen many people who can not write their own name, or how to sign a document but they have lot of money and run great business.

In my opinion there is not specific main cause for everyone. The causes are different from one person to another. What makes me poor might not be the same to you or another person. Many factors can be mentioned, lack of knowledge, lazynees, lack of opportunity, etc. But like i said previously it is different from one another.

There are many factors that cause poverty across the world among those factors we have poor governance, poor education, unequal distribution of resources, climate change, war, discrimination, unemployment etc. The list is endless.

The main cause of poverty in my perspective is laziness and fear. 
For example, In Europe, many people will choose to receive unemployment benefits which is small amounts of money than working for bigger wages.
Those who overcome their enemy called fear by using the new technology known as Bitcoin in 2008 became millionaires in 2017 by risking a token amount of dollars. So I am on the opinion that laziness and fear are the two main reason people are poor.

I think lack of education is clearly the main cause of poverty whether it be by the leaders who should be solving the problem or by people suffering poverty who dont know how to get out of it.

The major cause of poverty especially in my country is poor education system . irrelevant subjects which are taught right from secondary school up to university like political education, philosophy,history,even on sad note people who do sciences in our country are also theoretical.I have never seen  a knife, a razor blade, which is made by our scientists.
