How Is Poverty Measured?

The World Bank produced this short video as an educational aid explaining how we quantify poverty.  While a really high level simplistic look at measuring a multi-faceted issue, this video reminds us of the disparity in the world and the fact that we have the tools to define the problem. 

More importantly, our world has the resources and know-how to address the problem.  There's a big "IF" though.  We can only properly address the problem, and eliminate poverty, IF we make it a priority to do so.  It starts with recognizing there is a problem and we have the ability to remedy the situation.  Then we must collectively take action.  Each of us has a role to play in raising our voice in support of action being taken.

Hey!!  I'm That Poverty Guy . . . let's make a world of difference together.
