2850 Times As Effective

Compassion International just sponsored their one millionth child. They're a great organization, and I commend them for the progress they've made.

The global financial crisis has brought poverty to 100 million people around the world.

Think of the scale: 1 million in 57 years; 100 million in less than two years. That's 2850 times the effect. Three orders of magnitude.

If you could have started a non-profit that would have prevented this crisis, think of the good you would have done.

But even now are your beliefs about this crisis just a collection of convenient myths you've accumulated?
