Hard working people around the world

Hard working people around the world, earn their wealth through honesty and discipline, but does that mean that they must share their wealth with the poor? In the essay “The Singer Solution to World Poverty” by Peter Singer argues that, everyday we as humans are immorally spending money on ourselves rather than spending that money on reducing the worlds poverty (CITE FROM TEXTBOOK, PAGE 230). Throughout the essay, Singer gives his audience a sequence of interesting examples questioning the decision of people of how they choose to spend their money: “going out to nice restaurants, buying new clothes because the old ones are no longer stylish… so much of people’s income is spent on things not essential to the preservation of our lives and health” (CITE FROM TEXTBOOK, PAGE 231). Singer strongly believes that supressing income is the same as giving a kid a chance to starve to death. Therefore, Singer proposes the moral thing to do to end ‘world poverty’ is to give up regular extravagances – giving a huge amount of money could aid dying and starving children.
