However, we must remember there are still over 1.2 billion human beings who are trying to survive on less than one dollar per day and thusly are dying from extreme poverty.
The declining economy is affecting them most of all. As the rich countries of the world naturally turn their gaze inward, the billions of people most at risk for disaster are left to fend for themselves. Time, science, and research have taught us that the biggest factor for improving our global economy will be the end of extreme poverty. Even in the darkness we must listen and act.
