It's special. What are luxury items? Simply put, it's what people want, but not what people need.

When a person's basic "needs" are met, often in order to enjoy and other different reasons, and "want" to have a lot of things. LVMH this large group under many products, just to meet the needs of many people.

The world's various types of luxury items are incalculable, but the CEO of LVMH alone is worth more than 100 billion Dollars, which shows that the world's consumption of luxury items is very amazing and unimaginable.

How much is it worth $100 billion? For us as a person in general, it's hard to imagine. However, if these people are described as enemies, not too much. According to the International Monetary Fund in 2016, with $100 billion in assets, it ranks 60th out of 224 countries around the world.

Poverty is a global problem, caused by different causes from region to region, is also extremely complex, not one can solve. Poverty is everywhere, not in backward regions or poor countries, even in highly developing countries.

So, whether you and I live in London, New York, Los Angeles, Taipei, Hong Kong, Beijing, or Shanghai, people living in extreme poverty may be around us, but we often turn a blind eye.

As human beings, we understand that we are small, very limited, and cannot solve all kinds of poverty. But that doesn't mean we have to turn a blind eye, or be cold enough to ignore it.

True, we enjoy the hard work in the sun, eat and drink happy, this is a matter of course. Satisfying the inner desire, buying luxury items, whether in pursuit of taste, or for the sake of enjoyment of life, is also understandable.

However, when we enjoy the rich and full food in the "harvest of life", the pursuit of a variety of luxury objects (Luxury Variety, LV), can also have a greater vision of life (Luxury View, LV), willing to enjoy their own, deliberately left "two wheat spikes", To the poor who are extremely vulnerable, and few people are picking up their voices (Little Voice, LV)?
