LW Tel Aviv: Global Poverty: An eye level view

10


Ofir Reich, former Data Scientist at Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA), will be speaking on "Global Poverty, an eye level view."

We meet at Google, 12th floor 98 Yigal Alon Street, Tel Aviv.

Summary:

What do people living in extreme poverty, who make up somewhere between one sixth and half of the world's population (depending on how you count), look like? What houses do they live in? What do they work in? What do they eat? How do they conduct themselves financially, socially and with their families? Why do they have so many children? Is their situation getting better or worse? And how is it actually that some countries are 100 times poorer than others? We'll have experiences and photos, statistics, economic analysis and modern research.
