It tried in vain to prove that the Berlin manufacturers had held their own only thanks to protection tariffs, with the abolition of which the population would be irremediably impoverished and the factory workers would be completely ruined.
Напрасно доказывает оно, что берлинские фабрики держались до тех пор лишь благодаря покровительственному тарифу, с падением которого население окончательно обнищает, и фабричные рабочие пойдут по миру.

Truly her impoverished life in Luskan had not been an enviable existence. But still, in Luskan Delly Curtie had friends who were as her family, had a warm bed and food to eat.
Конечно, ее нищенской жизни в Лускане никто не позавидовал бы, но там у Делли Керти были друзья, заменявшие семью, теплая постель и еда.

A grown man, a man of wisdom and experience, you are suddenly impotent and terribly impoverished.
Ты взрослый человек, умный и опытный человек, и вдруг ты ощущаешь бессилие и ужасную опустошенность.

How the “clever enterprising peasants” treat their impoverished community associates is seen from the already quoted Mr. Zlatovratsky’s book.

So a new, long-term, economically sustainable solution is urgently needed – one that directly engages with the communities that are suffering most – in order to achieve the support of the deeply impoverished rural population.

The last thing impoverished Moldovans need is an autocratic, unaccountable government that lacks sufficient imagination to find a way to revive the country.
Последнее, что нужно обедневшим молдаванам – это деспотичное, безответственное правительство, у которого недостаточно воображения для того, что найти способ возродить страну.

The ultimate reward of a union with a young woman who was both unattractive and impoverished ought to be connected with immediate disadvantages by some very palpable chain.
Вознаграждение в виде союза с непривлекательной и небогатой молодой особой не может не стать в самом скором времени весьма неприятной обузой.
