(Paul Newman)Paul Polak, whose non-profit organization International Development Enterprises (IDE) has helped over 17 million people get out of poverty permanently, exposes the top three myths in our efforts to end the root causes of poverty: You can donate people out of poverty, national economic growth will end poverty, and Big Business will end poverty. He then, through the story of a Nepali farmer, puts forth a framework for ending poverty that has already been proven to work.
