the definition of poor for me is when they are difficult or unable to fulfill their daily needs. daily needs are directly related to money and economic conditions so that poverty will not be separated from the circulation of money

Poor people often make mistakes that they do not dare to change and do not know how to seize the opportunity. Not knowing the opportunities is one of the worst things I've ever known. Because many people are very intelligent but they are always shy about having a breakthrough in life. Their lives do not get good and good finances.

Each country typically has a poverty threshold, in case you're asking for precise numbers. It's determined with cost of living, etc. in mind. This is mostly used in official ecnonomic numbers.

Still, the word itself is largely subjective, as everyone who's struggling is likely to classify themselves as poor. There's no use in trying to draw a line between them.

Exactly, being poor is subjective. Other's might consider themselves poor because they don't have a stable job. But those who have jobs can't even get 3 good meals for their family on the table. So its really hard to draw the line.

And being poor is a choice. If you don't want to live into the poverty then by all means do everything in your control to make your life comfortable.

I couldn't disagree more. People live under different circumstances. If poverty were as easy as telling people to work harder, then it wouldn't be a global problem. Governments are supposed to provide everyone with opportunities. If you were given an opportunity and you squandered it, that's your fault. If you were born poor and the government didn't try to help you in any way, then they share a huge part of that blame.

Case in point: Venezuela. 87% of their population is estimated to be below the poverty line -- how hard should they have to work? Is it still their choice that they were poor? I don't necessarily support getting rid of governments, but I can see why some people push for it.

There are a lot of factors that weigh in before you can classify someone or a family poor. Factors such as cost of living, average income, minimum salary, take home pay are just some of the factors to consider on classifying if your family is poor or not. Some factors not even involve in money is also included like the the literacy rate which also weighs in when you are identifying who is poor or not.

I think the basis of being a poor is the attitude of being lazy. Anyone can have work if he/she is hardworking and would not choose what work he/she must have.

A human need of survival extends to the growth of a family, of the certainty in achieving a prosperous life. Yet what's really the basis of being a poor? Talking about the significance of money comes along with how much a family earned daily, weekly, monthly or even a year. Constant with the changing society is the changes in the field of market factors such that increased in demand grows above rate.

Weighing on how little... is how little do we earned, how little we are as a whole, and how little the world could turn upside down in just a second. Economically, for someone to be called a poor isn't based upon the money itself, but the reality that a person experiences every day such that even how big you are if you're still trying to come forward just a little step is a lot difficult compared to the others is basically the poor one.
Money is what makes you rich or poor and that’s the first thing we all need, that’s the same reason why most of us are here– to make money. Some people usually say that money is not the thing, but what you have like buildings and stocks and whatever, but I say that is a lie. Your house can’t feed, you need money for everything you do and by the way if you don’t have money there is no way you can afford a house. So money is the number one thing and it is what’ says if you’re rich or not.

Being poor is based upon how a person act on the circumstances that life gives to them. Poor people often find it hard to coup up on the ever evolving technology and of course it will include financial aspects as well. I don't argue with you that being poor does not only defined by money but it is mostly the reason why people are called poor because they have less resources than the rich ones.

the concept of rich and poor is rather subjective.  being no money but content life doesnt mean you are poor. riches in material but with a lot of loans and credit does not make you rich.

On the other hand,  I feel the word 'poor' should be eliminated from the dictionary cause I believe no man is 'poor'.  We all has something the other person is wishing it aiming to have no matter how big or small or different we may seems. The word poor mean not being able to have money to live a comfortable life. And being or living comfortable does not necessarily have to attach to having money or being wealthy.

Unfortunately we live in a world where money and material things determine mostly how comfortable your life would be. I mean yeah, anyone can be happy just by being contented with what they have but you can't really get by if you don't have the means to spend.

The definition of poor itself is a condition of a person who is unable to meet the needs of his daily life, be it lacks food, clothing, living, education or health. And IMO the most important factor is that someone is a poor is a lack of education, he cannot think of changing his life in a better direction. He only resigned to what he had received so far. Surely, it will be different if there is someone who has education, at least he has a high school education, he will continue to try to change his life, especially in terms of economics to be better.

Agree to someone who says money is not the most important factor and determines that he is a poor person. It was very useless if he has a lot of money but he cannot manage or use the money cause some time later the money will run out. So, there is no way to avoid being poor, one must be able to manage money wisely.

the lack of employment and the capacity to support their abilities which are said to be poor causes difficulties in earning income for those who are said to be poor. and this is what the government is now thinking about tackling poverty in various ways, but there are still poor people in the country because of the difficulty of finding decent employment.
I think the basis of being poor is the lack of knowledge due to they can't go to school because they don't have any money to sustain their education, mostly those requirements they don't have the money to sustain that. Being lack of knowledge will leads you to lack of employment and you can't find job because you did not go  school.

People who are into stuff, buying things that they don't want, Buy luxury items-Foods that are expensive- I look them as a poor coz they don't have proper investment or mind controlling. The proper mindset which may lead to success is in us. So if you think big you'll get rewarded or gain huge profit. Depends on how patient you are.

If they want to be rich or want to have everything, then it needs hard work, but if they are lazy, poverty will befall them, but there are other factors that cause poverty in their country, one of which is the government must open jobs in their country to reduce unemployment and poverty .

Well for me the basis of being a poor is when we realize that we can't even afford to buy things such as the basic needs per day or I mean the money we have is insufficient for the need of the family. I think earning a monthly salary of $100 below is considered as poor most especially if we have a huge number of family members like those in an extended family. Sometimes what makes people poor is laziness.

The basis of poor is simple he don't have enough savings or investment which can secure him better standard of living...

I do not agree to this allusion because for me, I don't see being poor as not having money in cash or at all, or not having investments. I rather see poor as the lack in every spear of life, example, knowledge, political connection, health, charismatic and influential etc.

Have we not heard or seen rich people who don't know how to use their money to influence people? People would rather dance to the tune of a poor man who is an orator rather than a wealthy man more like a moron?  Roll Eyes

Have we not heard of poor gate attendant who connects people to jobs/employments ?

Have we not heard of poor man whose phone contacts is filled with high and mighty?

In other words, being poor sometimes is not only when you don't have investments but when you can't help yourself or others.
Bill Gates says that “if you born poor it is not your fault but if you die poor it is your fault.” It means that you have guts to become rich. You have no ability to earn money from different income source. Our leader said work, work and work. It means that you will have to work hard to become successful in life. World is full of opportunities but only smart and clever people can benefit from these opportunities.

You are not poor because your parents were poor but because you want to remain poor. There is no doubt that you will become rich if you determine to your work. If you are hard worker definitely you will be successful in your life. Luck is also a factor which can change your life, but it is not everything. You cannot blame your luck if you do not succeed in your life.

I think the basis of being a poor is the attitude of being lazy. Anyone can have work if he/she is hardworking and would not choose what work he/she must have.
Situations can be better and bad depends upon the actions of a person towards financial situations as well as other life activities which are important and should be taken care of. If you are financially challenged then you need to change your situations, you need to start a low scale business where you can make profit easily and then with your savings you can upgrade to crypto trading but the only one thing which will help you out in overall journey is your knowledge.
