How can we best help the poor?

I don't normally watch (or post) longer videos, but it's Saturday and this was worth my 20 minutes. I do love my data, especially when it's tied to making the world a better place. This talk encourages me to think we can make informed choices to reduce poverty and disease. And it may not be in the ways we think, but as the speaker says, "Sometimes ideology has to be trumped by practicality." I'm all for practicality.

And here's the link to Deworm the World.

h/t Andrew Sullivan.
