2007 Threat #01 Poverty Top Books

Earth Threat #1: Poverty

A Listmania! list by Robert David STEELE Vivas (Oakton, VA United States)
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)
The list author says: “There are ten threats, twelve policies, and eight players other than the EU and USA that matter if we are to get a grip on our future. Each of these 30 topics is addressed at www.earth-intelligence.net, and in Amazon discussion groups being created to bring together authors and readers to form a global information sharing network that will be superior to what secret intelligence and secret government bureaucracies can put together. This is how we save Humanity and our Earth–by taking back the power over relevant information and the policies that have here-to-fore been dominated by special interests instead of ourselves, the taxpayers and end-users.”
Creating a World Without Poverty: Social Business and the Future of Capitalism
1.  Creating a World Without Poverty: Social Business and the Future of Capitalism by Muhammad Yunus

7.  Pathologies of Power: Health, Human Rights, and the New War on the Poor (California Series in Public Anthropology) by Paul Farmer

“The title sums it up nicely.  What the rich fail to understand–which the elite in NYC understood in the 1920’s–is that poverty breeds infectuous disease, and as Larry Brilliant (Google.org) likes to point out, infectuous disease is indiscriminate–it has killed over twenty Popes, Presidents, Kings, Queens, and Prime Ministers.”

The Working Poor: Invisible in America
8.  The Working Poor: Invisible in America by David K. Shipler
The list author says:
“This book grabbed me.  See my longer review.  The author is correct, is you are working you should not be poor, but the reality is that we are making less now in real dollars than we did in the early 1970’s, CEOs are looting their own corportions while exporting jobs to child and sweatshop labor.  My personal estimate is that the dollar is today (2007) worth half what it wwas in the late 1980’s.”

Earth Threat #3: Environmental Degradation

A Listmania! list by Robert David STEELE Vivas (Oakton, VA United States)
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)
The list author says: “There are ten threats, twelve policies, and eight players other than the EU and USA that matter if we are to get a grip on our future. Each of these 30 topics is addressed at www.earth-intelligence.net, and in Amazon discussion groups being created to bring together authors and readers to form a global information sharing network that will be superior to what secret intelligence and secret government bureaucracies can put together. This is how we save Humanity and our Earth–by taking back the power over relevant information and the policies that have here-to-fore been dominated by special interests instead of ourselves, the taxpayers and end-users.”

Earth Threat #5: Civil War

A Listmania! list by Robert David STEELE Vivas (Oakton, VA United States)
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)
The list author says: “There are ten threats, twelve policies, and eight players other than the EU and USA that matter if we are to get a grip on our future.

This is how we save Humanity and our Earth–by taking back the power over relevant information and the policies that have here-to-fore been dominated by special interests instead of ourselves, the taxpayers and end-users.”

A Listmania! list by Robert David STEELE Vivas (Oakton, VA United States)
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)
The list author says: “There are ten threats, twelve policies, and eight players other than the EU and USA that matter if we are to get a grip on our future. Each of these 30 topics is addressed at www.earth-intelligence.net, and in Amazon discussion groups being created to bring together authors and readers to form a global information sharing network that will be superior to what secret intelligence and secret government bureaucracies can put together. This is how we save Humanity and our Earth–by taking back the power over relevant information and the policies that have here-to-fore been dominated by special interests instead of ourselves, the taxpayers and end-users.”
