Here is the GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 14th August at noon SLT: Will there ever be an end to poverty?


 Are the poor always with us?  Will there ever be a time when every human has plenty to eat, clean water to drink, a home to live in and good, reliable health care?

Let’s talk about what causes poverty.  Historically, natural disasters, such as bad harvests and plagues, caused poverty.  Or made poverty worse, because death by starvation was common in the past.  And it continues today, in countries such as North Korea.

In rich countries, poverty and homelessness are caused by drugs, by debt (including credit card debt) and by greedy corporations.  Will our efforts to combat climate change mean that poverty increases?

Are we setting too high a target if we want to get rid of poverty?  Come and discuss the problem if you have ever worried about money, and that means everyone.

GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 27th March at noon SLT: How do the rich live

 


This week we will wonder about the difference between a rich person and a poor person.  Why does one person get richer while another just falls more and more into poverty?  What does the world look like to the rich?  Can you escape poverty and join the ranks of the rich by changing how you think?

Come and find out how to think and live like a rich person.  This might be the most important time of your life so don’t waste it on Netflix.  Come to GeekSpeak and bring all your poor friends!

SLGeekSpeak – how do we fight extreme poverty? Join the discussion June 30th at 12pm SLT



Poverty makes people do terrible things.  They sell their children, they become terrorists or pirates.  They let some of their children starve to save others. 

What is the cause of poverty?  And what is the solution?  Printing more money?  Donating more food?  Free contraception?  An end to child marriage?  Education?  More power and choice for women?

How can we put an end to extreme poverty?  Move your feet and bring your brain to GeekSpeak.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have ideas for future subjects.
