18th May 2018

Believe it or not there has been a huge reduction in extreme poverty in the past 40-odd years. An 80% reduction from 25% to 5% of the world's population - very much helped by China with a  reduction from 700 million down to 100 million. 

The first graph shows the drop in poverty in East Asia and the World and the second is overlaid with the impact of economic freedom in China.
