Article Name:‘The global middle class is bigger than we thought’

By: ‘Shimel Se Ali, Uri Dadush’

It states that there is a better way to measure the middle class .i.e. car ownership, as it is a clear indication that people can buy other luxury goods.

Summary:

This article is recommended for this week to come. Interesting is the only way to describe it. Further, yes, middle class is growing bigger and when we measure it with this, results are beyond interesting. We are glad we found this article.

Recommendation 3 from ‘Infinity News Network’

Article Name:‘Women are weak?’

By: ‘Jason Worrell’

The article is talking about a new ad campaign from the house of Obama, which has shown a girl going through various stages of life with the help of only the schemes and benefits given by the Obama administration. It has attracted criticism from various houses including the Republicans, because the woman has been portrayed as if she wouldn’t have been able to make it through life without the Obama administration. So, in a way, article states that women are weak, it is something that is being portrayed by the ad campaign.

Summary:

Well, totally ridiculous, surely, the ad campaign wants to show the benefits really help people get through life wherever necessary. Women are weak is not something that the ad would want to show. We all take advantage of the benefits given to us by the government, does that mean we are weak too?
