Why are so many people still poor, and what--if anything--can be done to help them? The Skeptic's Guide to Global Poverty provides answers to the challenging questions many people have about the poor. Ranging from how poor people feel to ways governments keep their people poor, the book discusses various aspects of poverty and its affects. It also considers various approaches to solving issues relating to poverty, including child labor, malnutrition, sex trafficking, refugees, and national debt. The book looks at institutions such as the World Bank and USAID and explains what they do, how they do it, and why some people criticize them. It redefines current events such as the minimum wage, immigration issues, health insurance, and debt forgiveness. It helps explain many of the issues humanitarian organizations are seeking to address, such as infant mortality, food security, and child development, and will be a useful tool for donor education.
