About the Real Causes of Global Underdevelopment

Global poverty did not just happen. It began with military conquest, slavery and colonization that resulted in the seizure of land, minerals and forced labor. Today, the problem persists because of unfair debt, trade and tax policies—in other words, wealthy countries taking advantage of poor, developing countries.

Consider that 20% of the planet’s population uses 80% of its resources and consumes 30% more than the planet can regenerate.

Martin Sheen narrates this feature-length documentary by award-winning director, Philippe Diaz. Filmed in the slums of Africa and the barrios of Latin America, The End of Poverty? features, among others, Bolivia’s Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera and leaders of social movements in Brazil, Venezuela, Kenya and Tanzania.
