What an excellent article. He knows what he is talking about and doesn't revert to left vs right political talking points. If only we could have informed discussions like this instead of the left yelling at us that we need to give people more money for nothing, and the right yelling that it's their own fault that they are poor.

And the fives ways to end poverty were?

Great work! It is certainly true that self-reliance is a major key--the idea that I can do something that will make progress instead of waiting for someone else (govt, relatives, non-profits, etc.) to make progress for me.

Even if your first idea(s) don't work out as planned, the idea that you're trying something means you're much more likely to eventually succeed.

I think you have the right concept. The article isn't slanted left or right, it's about getting people to be productive and hence, working themselves up.

Only one thing: it isn't the people on the right who are blaming the poor for being poor, it's those on the other side of the aisle accusing those on the right of blaming the poor for being poor.
