THIS IS AMERICA & THE WORLD is a weekly, international affairs television series, which is produced in Washington, New York City, and in countries around the world. The series is broadcast nationally on public television and PBS stations. Whether here in the United States or abroad, DENNIS WHOLEY sets out to explore the cultural, social and political lives of people around the world.
This week Dennis Wholey begins a roundtable discussion with 4 guests of varied backgrounds, all of whom are strongly devoted to confronting poverty throughout the world. The group discusses the definitions of poverty, how it takes shape in various parts of the world and most importantly as one guest stated, “poverty is far more than a lack of stuff” but in fact is often a lack of choices. Guests include World Vision’s Kent Hill, Oxfam America’s Gregory Adams, Brookings Institution’s Amadou Sy and Ambassador of Niger, Prof. Hassana Alidou.
