Poverty, Inc. Documentary and Panel Discussion

Poverty, Inc. poster"The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry — the business of doing good has never been better.

Yet the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change." (www.rocoeducational.com/poverty_inc)
