The subject discussed here it's a very inconvenient one, specially for those big corps housed at the developed countries. The Pyramid of the world is shown layer by layer. All the strings of social sciences is explored and contextualized at the light of History. Leaders were murdered and children are still being sold today in order to sustain a questionable way of life. A way that belongs to a few.
though i agree with many of its conclusions, "the end of poverty?" makes an unfocused and oversimplified argument against neoliberalism. a strong premise is bogged down by too many quick anecdotes presented without context. worth a look for the ample interviews with working people, but the moral of the story may be that discussions of "development economics" need more than 90 minutes. watch "the corporation" instead.
Under-thought and under-realized documentary that struggles to make coherence of its history lesson/modern examination of poverty. Amidst the talking heads and figures lacks a voice that says more than consume less and end privatization. Until the day comes when one values a human life more than a bottom line things will only get worse especially when the well begins to run dry. A topic that needs a better voice.
