The chronic poverty of many nations affects more than the citizens and economies of those nations; it threatens global stability as the pressures of immigration become unsustainable and rogue nations seek power and influence through extreme political and terrorist acts.

What isn't working? And how can we fix it? This book provides answers to these questions."@en ;
