CCS eBaithak with Matt Warner on Poverty & Freedom
Governments and well-meaning philanthropists continue to spend billions of dollars on foreign-led interventions that prop up the traditional model of international development. But real solutions to poverty are worked out by people with a vision of change that is rooted in a local understanding of sustainable growth.
The freedom to grow and develop is enhanced by the crucial knowledge and leadership that only local people can provide—and this is the model that can create a lasting exodus from poverty. Poverty & Freedom, a new book edited by Matt Warner, showcases thirteen case-studies of the inspiring work of local think tanks that are committed to expanding freedom for vulnerable populations by fighting government abuse, making legal markets more inclusive, and removing other barriers to opportunity all over the world.
Join on Zoom for a discussion with Matt, where you explore how making the world more prosperous starts with supporting locally-led initiatives that remove institutional barriers to freedom and give people greater choices over their own future.
Date and Time: Friday, 28th August 2020, 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM IST
Topic: Poverty & Freedom
