So it turns out that despite the global financial crisis global poverty rates have consistently fallen over the past few decades; even during the past three years. But wait!!!! I thought capitalism was a failure!!! What happened guys?!?! Please read and discuss.

The world is going to hell as we speak. Life 40 years ago wss wsy better. Cars broke down every 10000 miles and rarely went more than 75000 till they became junk. Now cars go for 300000 miles. I am telling you we kive in a hellish world, where food is so plentiful, we are pretty much all obese.

Life was way better when we beat clothes in a cold creek to clean them and ate only heavily salted food because there wsnt refrigeration.
