Global poverty is an international issue. Other countries are inclined to look to the U.S. with its great wealth to take an active role in assisting poor nations. People here spend money trying to counter baldness while people in other countries are starving to death. On the other hand, foreign aid may be distributed as political favors rather than going to those most in need. Present both sides of the argument on whether the U.S. should work to achieve the Millennium Aid goal for contributions to increase the U.S. contribution to 0.7% of its GDP.For each side of the argument, provide three facts to support the argument. Use at least three of the following concepts in your response:

  • Extreme poverty
  • Severe poverty
  • Persistent poverty
  • Economic growth
  • Human Capital
