TED Video: Novogratz on Rethinking Poverty

By Tom Watson on April 30, 2007No Comment

This post is, in some ways, a correction of a review I did on the launch of TED’s new video portal, featuting scores of fascinating lectures from its innovative long-running series. I’d jumped the gun a bit by complaining that the videos couldn’t be embedded in other blogs – that is to say, show here. Turns out that was true for some of the videos at launch and now, it seems all the videos can indeed be embedded elsewhere. My original point was that this is great for stimulating a real conversation, which is what the TED video launch is about. So kudos to the TED team for making it happen.

And what better way to tell you about the TED videos than to show you one – this is a lecture by Acumen Fund founder Jacqueline Novogratz last year about rethinking how the west goes about fighting poverty. I’ve heard bits and pieces of Jacqueline’s presentation at recent conferences, including Skoll and Milken, but this is her full-on argument and it’s well-worth watching.
