Description

The Ethics of Global Poverty offers a thorough introduction to the ethical issues surrounding global poverty. It addresses important questions such as:

  • What is poverty and how is it measured?
  • What are the causes of poverty?
  • Do wealthy individuals have a moral duty to reduce global poverty?
  • Should aid go to those who are most in need, or to those who are easiest to help?
  • Is it morally wrong to buy from sweatshops?
  • Is it morally good to provide micro-finance?

Featuring case studies throughout, this textbook is essential reading for students studying global ethics or global poverty who want an understanding of the moral issues that arise from vast inequalities of wealth and power in a highly interconnected world.
