We all have experts in our lives. Computer experts, plumbing experts, legal experts -- you name the problem, and there is someone out there who specializes in addressing that problem. Whether it's a broken car, a computer glitch, or even a broken heart - call the expert, they'll fix us right up.

So who do we call when society is broken? Who do we call when over a billion people live in poverty, unable to meet the basic requirements to sustain their lives? Or when the wealthiest 2% of the world owns 50% of the world's assets?

We call experts, of course: poverty experts. But -- who is a poverty expert, and can experts solve poverty?

The #GlobalPOV Project is a program of the Global Poverty and Practice (GPP) Minor. Based at the Blum Center for Developing Economies, University of California, Berkeley, the GPP Minor creates new ways of thinking about poverty, inequality and undertaking poverty action.
