Description

The Ethics of Global Poverty offers a thorough introduction to the ethical issues surrounding global poverty. It addresses important questions such as:








What is poverty and how is it measured?







What are the causes of poverty?







Do wealthy individuals have a moral duty to reduce global poverty?







Should aid go to those who are most in need, or to those who are easiest to help?







Is it morally wrong to buy from sweatshops?
