The Point is to Change Poverty Over Time

Hans Rosling suggests that economic development helps poverty

We enjoy the way that Mr. Rosling shares statistical materials concerning poverty and history. The video is 19-minutes but tells the story of how things that seem impossible have been accomplished over time.

Hans shares a sword trick that is worth the wait…

By sharing the technology developed during the industrial revolution we can raise the quality of life and the sustainability of all the world’s structures. Over an extended period of time, and with the appropriate scale, we will improve the concrete supply systems of the world’s poorest nations, but it will take time.

This statistical presentation graphically demonstrates that things get better for everyone as we focus our efforts on major problems, like sustainable housing.  Patience and a commitment to long-term thinking will yield results that will save more of the world’s resources.

CementTrust suggests that it is possible to cut through poverty using something as dull as concrete, and that the pointy end of economic development is providing opportunities to prosper for everyone on the planet…
