Life and Poverty
According to Statistics in the www.worldbank.com the life expectancy of high income countries is 79 years and a population growth rate of .7% annually. In low income countries the life expectancy is 59 years and growth rate of 1.8%. 1 Billion people live in high income countries and 2.3 billion in low income countries. These aren't exactly surprising- but just think what you could do with an extra 20 years of life?
