Why do some societies tolerate high levels of poverty and how could it be changed

NEED HIGH QUALITY ESSAY, PRICE NEGOTIABLE For the first part of the question, please form the argument around the idea of elitism in the US and UK. – How does elitism propagate(Example: Education) – How does elitism contribute to the toleration of high levels of poverty (Example: – Social segregation – Positive correlation between the rise of elitism and social exclusion — social exclusion = poverty(Peter Townsend 1960s) – People paid differently based on the perceived differences in skills and abilities(Dorling pg27) Acceptance of inequality(Dorling pg29) – Beliefs that elites and their offsprings are different and more capable than most: People are remarkably similar in ability. However, you can find a few people, especially in politics, celebrity (now a field of work) or business, who appear to truly believe they are especially gifted, that they are a gift to others who should be grateful for their talents and that those others should reward them ‘appropriately’. These people are just as much victims of elitism as those who are told they are, in effect, congenitally stupid, fit for little but taking orders and performing menial toil, despite having been required to spend over a decade in school. Under elitism education is less about learning and more about dividing people, sorting out the supposed wheat from the chaff, and conferring high status upon a minority.)
