Poverty has become a growing problem in both the States and in the rest of the world. The jury is still out and how best to combat it. But throwing a bunch of money at the problem doesn't seem to be working. That's the premise behind Poverty Inc., a new documentary film about the issue. The film features over 150 interviews shot during a four-period. The film "challenges the notion that systematic foreign aid giving is a solution for development." It screens tonight at 6:30 at John Carroll University's Donahue Auditorium. Admission is free. A discussion will follow the screening. Tickets aren't required.
