One thought on “Blueprint for Poverty Reduction (Kingston)

    Tell me I can’t do math. I’ll believe you. 25 in 5 is a cute slogan. However, how much poverty will be reduced by a 25 % reduction in 5 years with a 50% reduction in 10 yeasr policy. Whose poverty will be reduced? In 5 years, 25 people out of 100 will no longer be living in poverty or 1 poor person out of 4.

    This means 3 people will still be living in poverty. Is that acceptable?

    To me it isn’t: I have a slogan, too: I call it 5, 4, 3. In 5 years, out of 4 people living in poverty, 3 people will still be living in poverty.

    Is that acceptable to you?
