Summary of Don’t Panic – How to End Poverty in 15 Years
Gapminder Foundation © 2015
The United Nations’ primary goal is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030. This target may sound ambitious, but it is within reach.
In this hopeful presentation, statistician Hans Rosling aims to “edutain” on the grave topic of eradicating extreme poverty. Rosling delivers a visually stimulating lecture, which, at times, comes across as overly simplistic and frivolous. His message, nonetheless, is a vital one: Humanity can eradicate extreme poverty within a generation. getAbstract recommends Rosling’s engaging briefing to high school students who want to broaden their minds about the world, to students of development studies and to anyone with an interest in reducing global inequality.
In this summary, you will learn
- How the world can eradicate extreme poverty by 2030;
- How extreme poverty is identical across nations and cultures; and
- How a combination of investment in social progress, economic growth and targeted aid can end extreme poverty.
