hunger, poverty, money, military 

The estimated cost to end world hunger is approximately $30 billion per year. Ending world poverty would cost $175 billion.

In 2018, the world had a collective military budget of $1739 billion.

Hunger and poverty could be eradicated with just 12% of the amount of money spent on "defence".

The USA alone could reduce its military budget enough to end hunger and poverty, and still have the largest military spending in the world.

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed."
