Rethinking the Bottom Line: International Business and Poverty

Rethinking the Bottom Line: International Business and Poverty : Lecture @ St. Jerome's University
Speaker:Frederick Bird, PhD

More than two billions humans live in poverty (less than $2/day per capita income). Most live in developing areas. International businesses operate in many of these areas, extracting and harvesting natural resources, sourcing goods and services from local producers, manufacturing, and selling. In what ways have these international businesses acted to reduce and/or aggravate the problems of poverty at the bottom of the global economic pyramid? What can we learn from their experiences -- both their accomplishments and missed opportunities? What differences have they and can they make?
