Ethics (PHIL 2306)
Poverty in Mexico Poverty in Mexico is a social problem which not only speaks of an economic problem, but from this, many other problems that affect the ethics and morals of our country arise. To judge and understand all of this, we must first identify some of the factors most important to cause it, and hand, the consequences that these have. Inequality in Mexico has been considered as one of the big reasons to grow our poverty every day, where the discrimination is directly reflected. In addition, in our country have a population growth exaggerated, where four of every ten Mexicans are poor, according to the data reflected in the Mexican economy. Still not enough with this, in addition to extreme poverty in our country, should we include what it gives us, as violence caused by having so many different forms of poverty, and also, with this we realize that ignorance in our country, is also a negative result of the shortcomings that are in Mexican society.
In the past 25 years, the real income of households grew a 1. 7% to 10% of the richest Mexicans, but only a 0. 8% for the poorest 10%. It is here where we can see that the inequality in mexico is, without a doubt, a very important trigger for poverty in our country, and it's much more high percentage of poor to the rich at the national level. This is result of that in our country, the salaries for senior people are very high, but for people in low positions, as a laborer, the salary is low while they are people with fewer opportunities and more need. Against the above, we should not forget that Mexico is a country in which most exercise acts of discrimination against different groups of population, whether by age, cultural, ideological reasons, and religious. Due to all these discriminations, disabled people in age of old age, of different race, or simply people of sexual no favorite genre, live limited to having no job, not having the same opportunities of growth than others and be part of a society where poverty reaches a stereotypes.
Between 2010 and 2012 the number of poor Mexicans increased by 500,000 people, going from 52. 8 million to 53. 3. This is due to population growth in mexico is high compared with what the Government of our country can handle, ocacionando that extreme poverty, giving when the population has 3 or more social deprivation, becomes increasingly more large. To increase the population, there is more demand of services and, in the short term, work, and in Mexico it's more the poor class middle and rich, is more the population which poor grows, and so increase many more needs that fail to cover completely. The care of the needs of a rapidly growing population can be a major challenge to the ability of a country to manage its resources efficiently, and because resources are not sufficient for everyone in mexico, this makes it even more complicated to the passage of time, for example, people living in rural areasYou can not have access to drinking water, electricity, food and needs basic to survive. the fact that the population grows is not bad, but that as our country has largest number of unemployed population, only increases the numbers of people in poverty.
Violence occurs when individuals encounter obstacles to their personal and social development, therefore, that in addition to the factors that the occasions, also affect the consequences of poverty throughout the country. In September of this year, the unemployment rate rose to settle at 5. 29% according to the INEGI, and because of all this, the level of violence and crime in our country also increased. While people can get to have a decent job, many times this same can't afford to cover their needs for living, and is here where begins also the poverty of people affect your life ethics and morality, as seen in the need to often leave aside its principles by the necessity of living well, or at least of half live and this is where they begin
