Note: if you're unsure about any of the options listed above, then before choosing your answer please take the time to click on the applicable link(s) to learn more about the option in question.

My goal is not for everyone to choose the same option, but merely for everyone to make an informed choice (as opposed to an impulsive choice).

A system that uses 2) 3) 4) and 5) to induce 1)

Sorry, I somehow read what contributes MOST, not least.

In this case, it clearly is 1), since it is just a self-feeding loop initiated, among other things, by 2) 3) 4) and 5).

If these factors were reversed, along with some other, we could turn the whole thing around.

That's why I capitalized the word "least."  ;)

Thanks for the clarification.

Geo,

Since you are an expert on this topic. What TWO top things do you feel contributes MOST to poverty? I assume some are in your poll above. Any others?

Who is to blame for poverty in your opinion? How long has it been around? Short on time, need a cliff notes version. THx
Don't believe me. Look it up yourself!

Thanks for the thoughtful question. Rather than repeat what I've already posted elsewhere, I'll simply refer you (and anyone else who has the same question) to the first post of the following thread:

I ticked to enable the change vote option on the poll, because I also got caught out by speed reading. I suspect I'm not the only person to miss read the question.

The poor contribute the biggest percentage while the richer you get the less you get to contribute as a percentage until you reach the Elite who pay no taxes what so ever...

Its just not fair.
Where as Percentages are fair.

Look at the eastern european countries, and how they implemented a no excuse, no avoidance, low flat rate taxation, typically at around 10% of income.

Incidentally, this is one of the biggest fall out issues between the Rothschild Agents and Putin.. Its like this, the Rothschild Agents paid no taxes and left that to population to pay, where as Putin says, no, everyone is going to contribute 10% of income with no exceptions, and no shyster lawyer tricks.

Yet if you understand the "great tax clawback scam," you realize that the Elite still end up paying zero percent in the long run, and that the working poor end up making up the difference:

That's why "what" is taxed is at least as important as the tax rate:

As far as I can tell, option 1.
