We are a nation of vast wealth and resources, but sadly, Congress only seems to posture on the issue of hunger. But much more can, and will, be done by concerned American citizens and nonprofits dedicated to lowering the number of those who go to bed at night hungry.
Over the last 20 years, the World Bank Group has helped countries lift 663 million people out of poverty. In the next 20, we believe it is possible to end extreme poverty. This goal is within our grasp. But if we don't confront climate change, we won't end poverty.

The current low interest rates allow government to borrow serious sums to finance these social investments. What's depressing is that the mainstream debates are over here, and the solutions are over there.
