Myths about the causes of poverty
explanations of the causes of distributive inequality of wealth, are actually
stories, legends, myths, integrating wisdom but lacking unquestionable veracity.
Poverty is a problem for several reasons. One,
perhaps the most important is that we annoy many, we are poor or not. For some
it is not a problem because it seems to them an important phenomenon.
Therefore, poverty is a problem only for those
who felt angry at its existence, we are poor or not.
I say otherwise is not mandatory feel bad that
there are people who have nothing with others who have too, and for many it is
not a problem of the existence of deserts or oceans, countries or territories
with a minimum and others with a vast territory, nor is there super irritating

when we know something invented an explanation. This explanation is similar to
a story, a legend, a myth literary style: it must be credible, consistent,
include proven known data and, above all, should be easy to understand for many
people for it to be included in the wisdom popular.
For example, do not know why the money is
distributed so unequally as population, intelligence, fertility of the land. As
we need to know why that both irritates us a majority, invent stories by which
the rich steal from the poor, assuming they are poorly distributed
opportunities, we think that politicians are corrupt and abuse the weaker (the
poor) to encourage them to deliver substantial bribes (the rich).
This story has all the ingredients: a credible,
consistent, attractive, exciting, it includes some hard data, but it is a
story. If truth and we would have ended with the irritating distributive
