How does poverty happen?/What causes it?

Some of the causes of poverty include changing trends in a country's economy, lack of education, high divorce rate, having a culture of poverty, overpopulation,and diseases such as AIDS and malaria.Poverty is general scarcity or death, or the state of one who lacks a certain amount of material possessions or money.Poverty or destitution refers to basic human needs, which commonly includes food, water, sanitation, clothing, shelter, health care and education.Many seek short-cuts to fame and fortune such as lottery, pools betting and casino. In the process they burn their fingers and even fall deeper down the abyss of poverty. Expecting a financial miracle without working for it is a sure sign of poverty consciousness.
