Supporting the world’s poor is complicated. Economist and author Jeffery Sachs argues that without monetary investment the poor will stay poor, while Dambisa Moyo suggests the opposite, explaining that aid often does more harm than good. With giving methods ranging from government managed food aid to corporate community involvement, and texting disaster relief to donating bag credits at the grocery store, which support is actually reaching those in need? Join Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times and The Chicago Council for an analysis of the people and ideas making change—for better or for worse—in global development.
This program is followed by a Directors' Circle Dinner, open exclusively to members of The Chicago Council’s Board of Directors, Chairman’s Circle, Directors’ Circle, Corporate Principals, and their guests.
Nicholas Kristof's latest book, A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity, cowritten with his wife Sheryl WuDunn, will be available for purchase and signing following the program.
