Two Dollars A Day

This video left me both amazed and depressed at the same time. Roy Beck uses Gumballs in this colorful presentation of data from the World Bank and U.S. Census Bureau to discuss World Poverty and Immigration. With over 3 Billion people in the world classified as desperately poor and making less than $2 a day it’s no wonder many view the United States as the ultimate destination. 99.9% of the world’s poor will never make it to a wealthy country so doesn’t it make sense to help them prosper where they already live?
