It is difficult to answer your question when you place an image of a biased theory under it
Radical thesis concerning endangerment to individuals based on bias opinion does not equality create
Anyone can survive in a very poor country if they choose to defend for themselves the right to advance through freedom
It is only when dictators prey on the weak that the individual loses the freedom to survive. For dictators to secure their victims, they must have books like "The Price of Inequality" written and distributed to provide the propaganda that all things will be equal if you just let the government control it for you
The Nazi Party had this same approach - they introduced the National Socialist Program. Under this program they declared
"the people's right to self-determination"
"The activity of individuals is not to counteract the interests of the universality"
"a division of profits of all heavy industries"
"creation of a healthy middle class"
"freedom of religion within the state so long as they do not endanger its existence"
"formation of a strong central power "
Once in power, the Socialists then produced policies for
"immigration of non-citizens is eliminated and non-citizens must be exported"
"All writers and employees of the media must be members of the Socialist Party"
"Publications which are counter to the general good are forbidden"
"Non-Germans are forbidden by law any financial interest in German publications"
Professor Stiglitz promotes this same basic victim theory through his writing. Within his scope of control, the government is to be run by individuals possessing all power to invoke policy for equality. When society places faith in such central control, suppression through deceit rises.
The only true equal society is one based on personal choice, personal hard work, and personal accountability.
Government cannot provide for this when they promote discrimination through policy
Equality demands that prejudice be tolerated due to the uniqueness of each individual human
Equality demands that each individual must recognize that they are the same in all regards except self-expression
Equality demands respect, not intolerance
Equality is individually controlled, no ideological laws or policy required
In a very poor country, one must seek to employ self-sustaining actions that provide the subsistence and shelter required to withstand the climate and pressures of common existence
sometimes this requires depriving oneself of comforts
Actually, it is somewhat easy for a poor person to live and survive in a poor country rather than in a rich country!
If the whole country is poor odds are there is not "keeping up with the Jones mentality" going on. When we see more we want more.
There are some things a person can do to improve their lives. Get a good education, learn a skill or trade others will pay for, stay physically in good shape and avoid the pitfalls of unplanned pregnancy as well as choosing a mate who is not on the same page as you. "He who fails to plan, plans to fail." One plans for success!
In fact I believe it's easier for one person to avoid poverty than it is to try and rescue a large group of people. Life is a personal journey.
“You don’t get what you (wish) for, you get what you (work) for”
If someone is determined to improve their life and they avoid a lot of the (common mistakes) people make they will avoid poverty in a free society. We have no say in the circumstances we are born in however we have the power to build from there. One of the keys is to find someone who in similar circumstances did achieve what you want and follow their "recipe". Success leaves clues.
Our lives are for the most part the end result of the choices and decisions (we) made along the way. No state or government can keep people from making bad choices for themselves. If I only have to feed/clothe/shelter and look out for myself odds are I will live a higher standard than if I had to support a wife and 3 kids on my same salary. If at some point I start earning more money or would have met someone who earns good money that would allow for raising a family then that's when I'd take that step. One has to constantly strive to look for ways to improve their life year over year.

I believe, any citizen who is motivated to survive and acts on it, assists the whole of the citizenry to spiral in a positive direction, manifesting as enthusiasm to survive, succeed and thrive. AND any gov't which squelches the freedom of its citizens, (through excessive taxation,) prevents...
