    With 10% of what is spent on arms we can end world hunger. Imagine how life would be if the other 90% of the arms budget went toward improving people’s lives!

    there is a good book that was written in the US.  i forget who wrote it but its called "The 2% Solution" which basically argues that by utilizing only 2% of the U.S's total GDP, they could have universal healthcare. 

    Concerning poverty, I suppose stronger international agreements is a stepping-stone, but the real barrier to any true success - is the reality of global discriminatory energy policies.  Povery is used as leverage to justify environmental regulatory policies

    The first step should be how to focus this issue in the minds of those who care. Until it is viewed as a pandemnic to society as a whole, people will not pay attention. Then educate, educate, educate...

    Not saying let other's go hungry, but if you look at all the aid we give to other country's, and take some of those resources and put it back into our own, i think i could help in some kind of a way.

    Since you are not a world leader you cannot do anything about world poverty.

    Since you are not the leader of your country you cannot do anything about poverty in your country.

    But since you live in your neighbourhood you can take the initiative to get engaged locally in the issues you feel strongly about. There will be 2 consequences: 1- You will discover why people end up living in poverty in your area. 2- People will watch your impact and will be encouraged to follow your lead.

    I also wrote a hub page about micro-finance which may give you ideas.

    Promote birth control and abortion. Stop "rescuing" (or trying to) failed families and cultures.  Yeah, this will get a lot of "down" votes, but any other suggestions will not solve (or alleviate) the problems of overpopulation and stupid cultures and religions).  So, go ahead, keep wringing your hands and trying to pee into the wind.
