What a Bargain – I’ll Take Three.

How many million Americans does it take
to screw in a light bulb over their heads?
A real war on poverty
“According to World Bank estimates, $54 billion a year would eliminate starvation and malnutrition globally by 2015, while $30 billion would provide a year of primary education for every child on earth.

At the upper range of those estimates, the $611 billion cost of the war could have fed and educated the world’s poor for seven years.”

(Boston Globe, Nov. 11, 2007)
