so rich, yet so poor! September 25, 2008

So the archbish has spoken to a group of bankers and quite forcefully too. My question is, how will it sink in? The amount of monies spoken about in recent months is beyond my comprehension:

£380 billion – USA govt. bale out of banking system
£12 billion – LLoydsTSB pay for bank takeover
£12.5 billion – EDF to pay for British Energy
£6.8 billion – one quarter profit from BP

This amount of money is huge, yet £5billion would save 6 million children from death. Imagine how much poverty could be eradicated, imagine how many people could be provided with fresh drinking water, imagine how many orphans could find a home, imagine, imagine, imagine. In this world we are so rich, yet in this world we are so poor.
