WORLD: we got this


Why does global poverty exist and could we share wealth more evenly?

Season 3, Ep. 8

The latest episode of the ‘WORLD: we got this’ podcast explores how poverty affects people around the world and hears what could be done to distribute wealth more evenly.

In the episode, Dr Eduardo Ortiz-Juarez, Dr Liz Fouksman and Otto Lehto, who are all part of the Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy, share research on what lies behind global poverty including the effects of the pandemic and where it is increasing the fastest.

They also look at the suggestion that every adult should get a guaranteed minimum income, and we hear how fixed and deep-rooted ideas around work could be affecting grassroots support for such schemes and be contributing to poverty around the world.
