Worldwide celebrations: End of extreme poverty declared

I just have one question: The map shows Jordan having less than 5.0% that are living on less than 1 dollar a day, is this true? Or is it because of lack/inaccuracy of statistics from Jordan. If it’s true I am so happy for Jordan.

There is a movement to end extreme poverty globally, please help make a difference.

  1. It’s must read on the economy and corruption.“I don’t think the monarchy enjoys any popularity with the people,” says Toujan Faisal, a former member of Parliament who was jailed for 100 days three years ago after she accused the government of graft. “King Hussein tolerated a margin of corruption, but not the extent to which it exists now.”

  2. “The Hashemites are the fair-haired boys,” says a US government official. “The King is such a sycophant, telling Washington what it wants to hear and bashing people like [Syrian president] Bashar al-Assad, that they get away with everything.”

    Americans got a glimpse at the dark side of their plucky Arab ally early this year, when President Bush was asked at a news conference about Ali Hattar, a Jordanian mechanical engineer who spent a night in jail and was fined after he publicly condemned Jordan’s peace treaty with Israel and called for a boycott of US goods. Bush was unaware of the case, which had been otherwise overlooked by the Western press.

  3. 7aki Fadi, that sounds like good news. Thanks 🙂
