Documentary: "Poor Us: An Animated History - Why Poverty?"

What is poverty? What causes poverty? What can we do to eradicate it? 

Directed by Ben Lewis in 2013, this is an informative and animated documentary that guides us through the history of poverty, a phenomenon that has been part of the world society for thousands of years. Lewis travels in time and space throughout different civilisations in which poverty was a determinant component of society. 

Nobel Prize Economics winner Joseph Stiglitz and Jeffrey Sachs, the author of the bestseller "The End of Poverty" share their thoughts on this complex social, economic and political concept.
