To a degree yes but it often comes down to what laws are in place and how they're interpreted. It's been proven in some parts of the US and Canada that you can pretty much eliminte homelessness by simply changing the law. What's needed are different people making the laws, people who actually have some real world experience and don't just live in toff land. Take Universal Credit for example. It's been a complete disaster, ran billions of pounds over budget and has actually made problems like homelessness worse. The creation of Universal Credit required changes in law. WIthout that, no Universal Credit, less homelessness etc. They could have legislated elsewhere. Why not do what Scotland did and reform the private rented sector instead? The UK government could have ended no fault evictions (one of the leading causes of homelessness in England) by drafting very basic legislation that would have cost barely anything to change. Basically, homelessness is not 'ineveitable because of capitalism', it's clearly preventable. The right political will and the right people in power is all that's really required.
You should have said I am needy -:) maybe that might have done the trick ;)
That's called a charity.... People just don't realise that the nature of capitalism will always result in winners and losers. To have rich people, you need poor people. To have poor people you need homeless. This is pure fact, money is finite therefore wealth is accumulated through exploitation of others below them and the homeless are right at the end. It will never end. This is the sad reality of our existence and it is the only form of economics that works with our competitive human nature. Moving on. There are genuine good people out there and this is a win win for both the business and those it helps but let's not escape the reality of how our society functions.
Sadly it does nothing for my materialistic self who is cynical of such altruistic comments! I demand the Xbox One X, 2 Controllers and 5 top games for under £300! And from a trusted UK seller! NOW!!!
