India and China both have populations over 1 billion. Porviding jobs and food for this enormous population is un-realistic, and while the government struggles to fiix the economy the percentage of people that do not have a job will be forced into poverty. Southern Asia is like the time square of poverty meaning, more then 1\2 of the 2/3 of the poverty is located in Southern Asia. India and china both have increasing populations. The increasing populations and the fewer jobs are letting poverty consume more and more people. India has failed too use its big population as an asset. A high population means a larger work force. However, a if a Country fails too use the population as an asset, most of the population will be forced into poverty because the lack of jobs. Central Asia economy is circled around agriculture. However many big industrial companies are taking over the land and are forcing the farmers into poverty. In addition, China is slowly cutting down the farm sizes of small farmers. Poverty is a major problem and if action is not taken many people will be forced into poor living conditions.
