Bono @TED | Extreme Poverty is in Retreat | Let's Not Give Scarcity a Fighting Chance.

Extreme poverty declined from 43% in 1990 to 33% in 2000 to 21% by 2010 — that's a 50% reduction of extreme poverty in two decades. 
If the present trend line continues, we can reach zero before 2030. @Bono talks @TED about not screwing that up.
