About this site

This website is a parody in the spirit of Jonathan Swift: rather than arousing anger, it is intended to provoke thought. The theme of this parody is the idea that, from the perspective of our current economic system, poverty is a very good thing. Because it increases profit margins, its existence is beneficial to a global economy. In fact, it is in the best interests of multinational corporations and their shareholders to prolong poverty for as long as possible.

Whether you ultimately agree or disagree with these conclusions is not relevant; the purpose of this site is to provoke thought on the nature of our current economic system and our consumer culture, not to make you think that corporations are evil. My only goal in creating this parody is to make you think more about what is going on in our world.
