dc.description.abstract As a result of poverty in the United States, many find themselves homeless amongst other things. There is this unfair assumption that people who are poor or homeless are at fault. Is it not possible that someone could be working and then be laid off of work because budget cuts? Regardless, if one is at fault or not, it is the author’s belief that it is important to have compassion for people as a whole, especially ones who are less fortunate. The purpose of research is to gain knowledge and hopefully a new perspective on the role of business in addressing poverty. In this case, knowledge and perspective on how bad people are living and what causes them to get into such difficult positions. A definition of poverty is going to be established because poverty can differ depending on where you are in the world. From there, knowing how poverty is measured in the United States and gaining some statistical knowledge from respected sources will be important. Understanding how other developed countries address and reduce poverty will come next. Examples of the role of business in other nations in contributing to or alleviating poverty will be presented. Various solutions on poverty alleviation both in the United and other countries will follow from respected sources will be included. The paper concludes with an analysis and discussion section. en
