Reminder of good news: This article was originally published in 2016, but this under-reported good news is worth repeating. “[T]he economic liberalization and globalization that started in the late 1970s and accelerated in the 1980s, has led to a massive and historically unprecedented decline in global poverty.

Last year [2015], it was 9.6 percent. That’s a decline of 78 percent.”
