Need to Learn

Where will all the Poverty-Eradicating ideas come from?  Some of them will come from here – University of Manchester.  I’ve signed up for an MSc in International Development starting in September.  Karen spent all day yesterday helping me learn my way: from Oxford Road railway station to University Place, to the other buildings where I’ll be studying, back to the railway station, back to campus, inside the buildings, out again, etc. etc.  Poor Karen.  Thanks & well done.

Karen taught me how to get to the Arthur Lewis Building


Eradicate-Extreme-Poverty Blog: Introduction

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.  Karen and I have this firm belief that in our generation (i.e. those already alive) we (the human race) can eradicate extreme poverty and unfair trade.  Imagine a world where nobody at all lives in extreme poverty.  We’re not mad.  Knowledgeable people in the spheres of global development have the same opinion.  We would like to create popular and political will.  On this blog I will be posting any bright ideas, questions, articles, and seeking your comments.  Please join in.  The more the merrier.  To leave a comment just click on the title or time-stamp of any blog posting.
