Terrorism and Poverty: What is the Connection?

Maybe none. Check out Gary Becker's analysis (see also article on Associate Professor of Public Policy Alberto Abadie of Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government). He makes a pretty convincing argument that there is very little - if any - connection between poverty and terrorism. This seems to undermine any belief that aid to Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, and other Middle Eastern countires will dry up the source of terrorism. What do you think?
