Causes of Poverty in Pakistan (PARTI-II)

Division of Agricultural Land:

Pakistan is an agricultural country. Most of people are farmers by profession. One has land which is fulfilling the needs of his family but he has to divide the land into his children when they got young. After division the land is not sufficient to support
a family. Now the families of his children are suffering and spending their lives below poverty line.


In our society social bonding are gradually becomes thinner and thinner. A race of material object has been started even no one tried to understand the problems of others. Everyone is gradually changing from human to a bio man who only knows about his needs
and have no concept about the limitations of others. People are not ready to help each other. At last everyone has lost his trust on others which affect our social and economic system and it is another cause of poverty.

Lack of Education:

The literacy rate of Pakistan is very low. Most of people do not have any concept about the modern earning sources. Most people are unable to adopt technology for their business needs, that’s why business does not meet international standards and results
as decrease in revenue which leads the society to poor financial conditions.

Large Scale Import:

The import of Pakistan is greater than export. Big revenue is consumed in importing good every year, even raw material has to import for industry. If we decrease import and establish own supply chains from our country natural resources the people will have
better opportunities to earn.

Law and Order:

There are lot of problems regarding law and order. Terrorist attacks create uncertainty in stock markets and people earning from stock are getting loss due to which the whole country faces uncertain increase in commodity prices.

Fluctuated Foreign investment:

Foreign investor comes to local markets. They invest millions of dollars in stock markets and stock market gets rise in index. Then the investor withdraws his money with profit and market suddenly collapses. The after math always be faced by poor people.


Government is unable to manage the departments and country has low reserve assets. So the meet the requirements some companies run by government are sold to foreign investors. The commodities or services provided by the companies are becoming costly. For
example if government sold a gas plant then prices for gas in country rises.

Moral Culture:

The main reason for poverty is the social dishonesty and irresponsible behaviour of people. Everyone is trying to get rich by using unfair means. A shop keeper is ready to get whole money from the pocket of customer. People doing jobs are not performing
their duties well. In society the man considered brave or respectful who do not pay taxes or continuously violate the laws. This irresponsible behaviour continuously increases and produces loss for county.
