Most government in the world are developing methods to improve on the lives of their citizens. America is no exception. This part of the paper will be looking at how America can reduce its citizens’ poverty.
There are several methods through which the issue of poverty can be addressed. The most important is through creating jobs. The best pathway to avert poverty is through a decent income. America needs about 5.6 million new jobs so that the country can avoid heading deeper into poverty (Sherman, 2011). To create jobs, the federal government should consider investing in strategies such as rebuilding infrastructure, renovating abandoned housing structures, developing non-renewable energy, and so on.
Raising the minimum wage is also another method of combating inequality. Today’s minimum wage is $7.25 which cannot be able to lift a family of three out of poverty. If the minimum wage is raised from that figure to about $10.10, nearly 20 percent of children will see their parents receive a raise which will reduce poverty (Wage & Primer, 2014).
Gender inequality is one of the contributing factors of poverty in most parts of the world. Women usually earn less than their male counterparts even when they are doing the same job and have same level of qualification. If the wage gap is closed, poverty in women will be cut by half and will add almost half a trillion dollars to the US GDP (Seguino, 2009). To bridge this gap, employers should be held accountable if they have any discriminatory salary practices.
The above question required the use of critical thinking to develop not only a logical but also relevant and accurate response. In America, poverty is not as pervasive as it is in countries for instance in Asia or Africa. The process of critical thinking helped in gathering the information presented in Part “1” of the paper. To identify the actual number of people that are in poverty, it is crucial to first understand and define what poverty is, which I

Robert H. Ennis, the author of ‘The Cornell Critical Thinking Tests’, further facilitates our understanding of the concept by defining critical thinking as ‘reasonable, reflective and focused on deciding what to believe and do.’ So we can define critical thinking as the process of vigorously conceptualizing and evaluating information that we have gathered through observing, experiences, reflection or communication.
The system project “Bear wear” involved system approach thinking in that the project integrated legal issues risk awareness and risk management and how they impact on event planning and management. Instead of taking each element separately, the elements were integrated to form an enhanced approach to event planning and ticketing.
Critical thinking is irreplaceable and integral part of the academic field, because this is the basic way in which knowledge is constructed and developed. In the academic battlefield researchers and scholars are seeking explanations and answers to various open questions.
One can think about an event or a person by having thoughts simply passing through one’s mind, without necessarily focusing on any specific idea or trying to make much sense of the thoughts. Critical thinking however requires an attempt to ‘make sense’ of the

Aside from the importance of solving problems, critical
Critical thinking improves an individual’s quality of thought by skillfully imposing intellectual standards and inherent structures.
Critical thinking involves the application of logic and reasoning to new ideas, situations,
competently conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating information gathered from surveillance, understanding, reflection, way of thinking, and a statement as a guide to principle and action. Hence, critical thinking and ethical reasoning directly
In this process, bloodletting is considered inevitable. However, M. K. Gandhi proved this notion entirely wrong and faulty. He employed totally nonviolent ways of protest and ousted a mightiest rule from India by
