Descripción: Discussion of the annual letter from Melinda and Bill Gates, and how it shows that the world is getting dramatically better. Since 1998, global poverty has dropped from 30% to under 10%. Child mortality has been cut nearly in half. And absolute poverty and child mortality should both be extremely rare everywhere on Earth in 20 years. There is a lot of bad news. It is real. It is important. But it is also important to take a step back and look at the human story over time, and each year the Gates letter offers that opportunity.
