Ending poverty by 2030. This is the new goal of the World Bank. Jim Yong Kim, the current president of the Washington based institution, has called the finance ministers and central bankers who set the World Bank’s agenda to sign off on his request to set a deadline: 17 years from now.
The new objective, however, refers to extreme poor people only, namely those who earn less than 1.25 US dollars a day.
Provided the World Bank achieves its goal, should it be considered satisfying?
