Four Ways to Improve the Lives of the "Bottom Billion”


Paul CollierI’ve been reading a book by Paul Collier called Wars, Guns and Votes which I hope to review shortly. Economics is one of my weaker points which is why I chose to read this book (and which is why it is taking me so long). 

Paul Collier has some pretty incredible views regarding the poorest people on the planet and you can hear him talking in the video above about improving the lot of the bottom billion at the TED Conference in 2008.

He focuses on governance in this video and what governments can do to become accountable and legitimate.
