How to Fight Global Poverty

Good news doesn't sell, and it's strange how little we hear about the overall decrease in world poverty that has taken place over the last twenty years.  In this Learn Liberty video, Professor Stephen Davies explains how this has come about through an increase in that much derided concept of free trade.

Probably the majority of references I come across to free trade cast it in a negative light, I'm sure not without reason. But in principal at least, it must be the case that not restricting people from exchanging goods freely by drawing artificial lines in the sand must be a good thing mustn't it?

It's amazing to think that we're only ever about fifty years away from the complete eradication of global poverty, if we choose that path.
