Ending Poverty: Multiple Approaches

Brian Wang joins hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon to check in on his concept of basic power — a plan to provide solar energy to the world’s poorest people.

Then the guys review some other potential anti-poverty programs to see how they relate to basic power, including:

Ikea’s plan to lift 200,000 refugees out of poverty via employment.

The new wind turbine that costs aboput the same as an iPhone but that can power a single house — forever.

The new solar-powered device than can draw three liters of water directly from the air each day.

Are these ideas competitive or complementary? Tune in and explore.
