MONDAY (March 12, 2012)
The guest on Monday was Katherine Boo, author of Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, death, and hope in a Mumbai undercity. I was struck by one of her comments, which points out how regressive our political culture is when we’re not even trying to get rid of poverty.
I come back here and I think “Oh, if we were really serious about fixing poverty, we could do it in like, half a second.”
