Global Voices: Why Poverty?--Stealing Africa

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Watch Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 6pm on WORLD.

In an age of global trade, multinational corporations motivated by maximizing profit often end up working against the interests of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. Stealing Africa investigates reports of widespread criminality by well-known multinational companies operating in Africa. Featuring interviews with heads of state, corporate insiders and officials from the major global financial institutions, the nature and extent of the problem begins to emerge. 

Global Voices: Stealing Africa is a part of the series Why Poverty?, which is aimed at raising awareness of poverty around the world.
