Poverty doesn’t need explanation, it’s the natural condition of man who has had to scratch a living out of the ground from time and memorial. The really interesting question is “What causes wealth?”

Wealth is the anomaly and has only been created in certain cultures and relatively recently in the grand sweep of history. So, to be poor, you don’t really have to do anything, you just pretty much stay where you are and you’ll be poor. It takes effort, initiative, creativity to get out of that and so it’s the cause of affluence which we should be focusing on [See: What causes an economy to prosper?].
