ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has raised the Asian Poverty Line from one dollar per person per day to $1.35, while the World Bank has raised its global poverty line to $1.25. It is stated that this has increased the number of Asians estimated to be living in poverty and decreases the likelihood that the United Nations (UN) will be able to achieve its Millennium Development Goals, set for 2015.
