What makes Good People Poor

RICH PEOPLE! with no scruples and an ego that their cranium can not handle. “Mankind always sets itself only such tasks as it can solve; since, looking at the matter more closely, we will always find that the task itself arises only when the material conditions necessary for its solution already exist or are at least in the process of formation.” – Karl Marx

You may be right but yet senile, are you seriously looking into  the past of your present, hence future. Ow Bhagawan.  hehehehe  

Why are people poor?
An assessment:These are not my opinions, but I personally believe that all contributed to poverty one way or another.

  1. A lack of inherited assets - If your parents were poor, there's a strong likelihood that you'll also be as you haven't been given any inherited wealth to cushion your climb up the financial ladder.
  2. A lack of skills - Highly skilled people are rarely poor. This is because they have skills which can earn them wealth. People with few demonstrable skills are often poor for the inverse reason.
  3. A lack of education - If you lack an education, you'll find a number of doors closed to you. Those closed doors represent opportunities to gain wealth which is closed off to you.
  4. An addiction to substances - While there are more than a few people who are wealthy and who are addicted to substances, they have their wealth to cushion them from the effects of substance use/abuse. The poor do not and will often fall victim to circumstances created by their addictions.
  5. Untreated or poorly mental or emotional illnesses - See substance addictions above. If you are mentally and/or emotionally ill, you are likely to also be poor.
  6. Geographic location - If you are located in remote areas or in small towns, you are likely to be poor. The opportunities which exist in larger cities simply don't exist those areas and thus you have to "make do" with whatever exists where you are at.
  7. A lack of motivation - If you aren't motivated to constantly seek out new opportunities or to excel at what you are currently doing, you are likely to remain poor.
  8. Illiteracy - Similar to No. 3, but more extreme. Unless you are an exceptional person, if you cannot read nor write in the language which you speak, you will invariably be poor.
  9. Problems with the legal system - If you enter the legal system you are almost always consigning yourself to a life of poverty. Between court appearances, fines and lost wages due to incarceration, you will be unlikely to save money which in turn means you'll remain poor.
  10. A lack of savings - Most people who are unable to save are doomed to a life of poverty. Because they are unable to create a financial cushion for themselves or their families, they are poor and they will almost certainly remain poor for the majority of their lives.

While not all of the above are present in every case of poverty, at least one element is and that is likely the cause of a person being poor.
 
My personal opinion poverty:
If I am living in a secluded country with barren lands around me with no idea if other countries exist, I would think that's how life is and adapt to my surrounding and live comfortably. My richness would be my state of health with strong limbs. Bush man style.
