Quote:Some of the latest information on poverty in Australia comes from a study conducted by the Australian Council of Social Service in 2012. The report, Poverty In Australia, shows that in 2010, after taking account of housing costs, an estimated 2,265,000 people or 12.5% of all people, including 575,000 children (17.3% of all children), lived in households below the most austere poverty line widely used in international research
I heard about the b side of Australia too, I didn't do a good research on internet though, but i watched somewhere that the situation of Australian aboriginal people is very poor. I admire more the nordic countries like: Denmark, Norway (and Canada too)... ...All countries have poverty, and there might be some inequality in Australia too. But if we compare with Brazil (1) we have a far greater insurmountable abism between poor and rich (2) as inequality breeds criminality and violence (in some cases, I still not sure, anyway I'm poor and not violent
), we pratically have more losses in lifes than a country in war. Some Brazilians would get mad at me for saying this, and I understand, i like my country too I've been a military for a short period of time, and if I could go back in time would still be one (I'm patriotic not because of football, i love my country). In conclusion, we do have good things here too, the case is that i just can't figure out if they can surmount the bad ones.
