From poverty to prosperity: A conversation with Bill Gates

March 13, 2014, 12:45 p.m. ET – 1:45 p.m. ET. This event is livestream only. Full video will be posted within 24 hours.


The greatest antipoverty achievement in human history is unfolding before our eyes. The percentage of people living in extreme poverty has plummeted by 80 percent in the past four decades alone. Child mortality has fallen to record lows. Whole societies where deprivation and hopelessness seemed inevitable just a generation ago now rank among the world’s fastest-growing economies.What brought about this remarkable transformation? How can we build on its success?

AEI’s Philanthropic Freedom Project welcomes Bill Gates for an exclusive event at AEI. In a conversation with AEI President Arthur Brooks, Gates will describe philanthropy’s role in reshaping the landscape of global poverty, dispel myths about development that prevent the poor from rising, and discuss his prediction that almost no countries will still be poor by 2035. You can participate by using #AskBillGates or submitting questions through the "make a comment" tab below.
