Any comment Fred or Frank?
Forty six million Americans living below the poverty line is equivalent to the whole population of Spain. hahaha this is so funny, and funnier because of this word: Spain, in Spain, the situation is just the same as in the US, so there is two Spains living below the poverty line. To all the jack*sses in the USA, enjoy it pals, you've worked hard for that!!!Sep 14th, 2011 - 04:34 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

Is the USA's poverty line the same as every other nation's poverty line?
Is it a statement of Absolute poverty, or a statement of Relative poverty?
Throughout 'developed Brasil' costs are comparable or higher than in the USA, but salaries (median, mean, mode) , ownership of 'things', etc, are much, much lower.
A Brasilian family with a small house and a car would not consider itself, or be considered, 'poor', even though the family income level may be a fraction of that of a US 'poor family'.
