In the mid-1970s, Sinjay, the then prime minister’s son, Indira Gandhi, wanted to reduce the population density of India. He raised the motto of “a small family is a happy family” and began urging citizens to identify offspring through laws based on large financial incentives. The response to activate this force was slow. At the end of 1976, the result was only a response of 21% of the citizens. When his mother left the government, the rate of reproduction accelerated again.
It was logical that with high rates of poverty, the percentage of citizens using the services of many were just as accessories. The most prominent example is the use of the internet and mobile phones. How to find the basic needs of food and drink to spend on internet and communications bills. The poor did not refrain from luxuries and enjoyed life as much as possible. In the year of 2017, the number of mobile phone lines reached 96 million, an increase of 1 million from the previous year according to the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics. Internet users increased to 7 million in the same year in 2017. The total number was 33.19 million according to the Egyptian Ministry of Communications.
More than 1 billion people in Africa are involved in mobile services by the end of 2015 from the “Kenya-Ethiopia-Mozambique-Ghana” countries, which are developing countries, according to the annual mobile indicators report by Gumia Eygpt. Those figures, which seem illogical, are explained by a citizen living in Morocco. In his story in “The Economy of the Poor: Re-examining the Methods of Fighting the Poor” the researchers asked why the poor had a television yet could not save their day. “Life in the village is so boring that I borrowed for a television and a shower, although I also dream of a better life for my family, ” one person responded.
In the same view, it is impossible to convince the poor not to have a lot of children if it is a true way of life. The poor have another reason that is revealed by the researchers Bhagat Panerji and Ester Duflo in their conversations with citizens in countries such as Tunisia and Algeria about why the poor have their children. Essentially, the rich depend on their money and the insurance systems, which gives them protection in old age. The poor man has only to give birth to find a child who is dependent on him when he grows up and thus nurtures him.
However, a simple look at official figures and statistics shows that in 2017 the number of Syrians living below the poverty line tripled to 83% compared with 28% in 2010, according to the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) report. In a country like Egypt, which is the most populous country in the Arab world, according to the official statistics agency, the poverty rate reached 27.8% compared with 26.3% in 2012. Overall, the UN report estimated that the number of poor people in 10 countries Arab sector reached 38.2 million.
