    Yemen has always been a haven for corruption ,thanks to the previous regime who was admired and appreciated for the services rendered to the U.S. In a society with a high rate of corruption a wide gap of income discrepancies exist which explain the vast low income class under the poverty line. Before this crisis, availability of commodities with uncontrolled prices though, allowed people to satisfy their needs at various levels. Now, with crisis hovering , a total absence of all essential commodities such as gasoline, electricity , and bakeries are running low of flour makes the picture very glooming .Should this condition is allowed to continue, many people of low income class will die of both bombs and hunger.
