    Abstract

    The problem of world poverty is always of importance. In the last 20-30 years ideologies that glorified globalization appreciated that from the accentuation of globalization all the countries in the worldwould benefit as much as possible, and in each country as many citizens as possible would benefit. We now realize that poverty reduction not only did not occur at the anticipated level, but also, in some aspects, the problems facing the poor have widened. The differences between the rich and the poor have widened on a global level and Africa, which has been the primary supplier of raw materials for developed countries, currently occupies first place in the world regarding the share of the poor in the total population. The evolution of poverty, its causes and its impact on the population are the main issues that I have tried to capture in this paper.
