Abstract

This paper discusses extreme global poverty and what that means for the people living in those conditions. It also discusses the consequences extreme poverty has on the people in a first world nation if nothing is done to help those who live on or below that poverty line. This paper focuses on the ideas of economists, philosophers, and other influential thinkers such as Jeffrey Sachs, William Easterly, Paul Collier, Jacqueline Novogratz, Peter Singer, and Thomas Pogge. It compares and contrasts the different approaches from these scholar's perspectives. It also examines some of the fundamental obstacles in overcoming extreme poverty such as poor governance and anti-capitalist sentiment.
