Ending Poverty: Transforming the Lives of the World’s Bottom Billion

Even as the new millennium brings an extraordinary global conscience to end poverty, a pressing question looms: Can the world’s markets and development institutions transform the lives of the bottom billion, those living on less than $1.25 a day? Debates about microfinance and other means of “bottom billion capitalism” animate the research and teaching of Ananya Roy — one of Berkeley’s most popular professors. Discover Cal offers you a coveted seat in Roy’s class for a provocative talk, a lively discussion, and a chance to learn how Berkeley students are fighting global poverty.
