The End Of Poverty

For my Blog Action Day post, I wanted to draw attention to Philippe Diaz's 2008 documentary The End Of Poverty as a film examining the state of wealth distribution and effects of unbalanced economies.

We know that a lot of people just fail to be able to live lives because they are purely trying to survive. The natural instinct of human beings is to survive and then applying our thinking layers once we have established that being able to survive is not a necessity. It's the millions of people on the planet who can not indulge in this luxury who suffer shorter life spans and lives filled with a lot of pain.

Once poverty sets in then a whole lot of other troublesome issues arise so it is a good idea to see if we can't at some point quash the problem of wide spread poverty.

Below is a quick interview with the director.
