Claiming that education alone can resolve this problem is like saying all a starving person really needs is a fork and spoon. But that won’t help if he has nothing to eat!

FPAN is Nepal’s oldest NGO and a major partner in the government’s national family planning programmes. It started family planning services in 1959, before the ministry of health was even formed. It is a member association of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), which has refused to sign up to the gag rule and lost millions in funding as a result. https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2019/sep/28/nepals-family-planning-clinics-feel-the-force-of-trumps-global-gag-rule #contraception #poverty

In which John looks at the vicious cycles of poverty and poor health in Sierra Leone, including how the ebola crisis happened and why a center of diamond mining has become one of the poorest regions in the world.

For the last year and a half, Hank and I have been working on a big, long-term project with Partners in Health Sierra Leone. Sierra Leone has the highest maternal mortality rate in the world, and one of the highest child mortality rates, and we believe that can change with long-term investments in Sierra Leone's healthcare system. The project will be announced later this month, and this video explores some of the why.

It isn't the moral failings of the Right, or democrats and socialism that are to blame for inequality and poverty, at least not on their own. It’s our broken government, which she plays a large role in these days.

This is why she will never be a successful politician. She can’t preach partisan nonsense and believe she's doing any good when she thinks everything is "their" fault, while, at the same time, believing she's helping by preaching division. Being hell-bent on partisan politics leaves her blind and looking like fool.

At the very least she should be right when casting her terrible stones of rhetoric from within her glass house.
“In 2018, for the first time in 11 years, the official poverty rate was significantly lower than 2007.”

#Damn! This show is great! #TheUncertainHour is a great #Podcast. If you are a fan of the #Clinton's (specifically Bill & #Hillary), you might not like this content. They point out how many #American's lives were negatively impacted by the #Clintons legislative advances. These are some of the types of people who thought giving #Trump a chance would be a good idea. Hopefully, they changed their minds, but let's all be aware of how policy is often a zero-sum game.

Unemployment is Low Only Because 'Involuntary' Part-time Work is High

  • "Involuntary" part-time work is at least 40% higher in both countries (UK & USA) than it was 10 years ago.
  • The structure of the labour market has fundamentally changed, and what we used to think of as "unemployment" has been replaced by mass part-time work, much of it unwanted.
  • "Gig economy" jobs are to blame, according to Rob Valletta of the San Francisco Fed.
