Summary
  • Argues that for the first time in history the possibility of eradicating world poverty is within reach and offers a plan that combines personal philanthropy with activism and political awareness to increase the committment to helping the world's poorest people
  • Arguing that our current response to world poverty is not only insufficient but ethically indefensible, philosopher Peter Singer offers a seven-point plan that mixes personal philanthropy (figuring how much to give and how best to give it), local activism (spreading the word in your community), and political awareness (contacting your representatives to ensure that your nation's foreign aid is really directed to the world's poorest people)
