Listen in pop-out player

Can global poverty be wiped out in the next 15 years? The World Bank thinks so. Linda Yueh hears from the president, Jim Yong Kim, who is confident despite the rising numbers of poor in Africa. Tulanana Bohela reports from Tanzania, one of the fastest growing economies in Africa, but where a third of the population still lives on less than $1.25 a day. And, professor Sir Paul Collier from Oxford University, Kevin Watkins from the Overseas Development Institute, and professor Henrietta Moore, director of University College London's Institute for Global Prosperity, discuss how to lift a billion people out of poverty.
