Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The idea of saying any other measure of poverty  than 1 dollar a day isn't poverty is frankly laughable. The difference in costs of subsistence in different countries shold show that.

it may well be that the relative poverty measures aren't truly effective in showing poverty, but theres got to be some measure better than a dollar a day.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
