Organizer/Author
A daring, timely and thought-provoking documentary by award-winning filmmaker, Philippe Diaz, revealing that poverty is not an accident. It begins with military conquest, slavery, and colonization that results in the seizure of land and natural resources as well as in forced labor. Today, global poverty has reached new levels because of unfairly imposed debt, and unfair trade and tax policies. Wealthy countries exploit the developing countries. The End of Poverty? asks why today 20% of the world's population uses 80% of its resources and consumes 30% more than the planet can regenerate? Can we really end poverty under our current economic system?
