Poverty declining Worldwide

“Because we have moved decisively from what we called “globalization” into a new era of global inter-connectedness, where not just goods but information and ideas flow across borders constantly…”

“poverty is receding at a rate unsurpassed in history; and the power of
the emerging dreamers, thinkers, tinkerers and innovators worldwide
have only just now begun to transform our world.”

From the International Herald Tribune, the global edition of the New York Times.

    Thank you for this. I like to collect statistics on positive change in the world, to counter-balance the “bad” news we are so often served.

    Yes, the ego likes to hear what is wrong to make itself right. The media caters to that. That can give a mighty poor perspective on the world. I see a lot of good news, but one has to pay attention to see it in our culture.
