The End of Poverty?, a 2008 documentary based on the book "The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities for Our Time" by Jeffrey Sachs in which he makes the argument that extreme poverty can be eradicated by 2025.
With narration from American actor, Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now) this documentary examines Sachs' bold idea. What is extreme poverty? It is generally regarded as people who are earning less than $1 dollar per day. Jeffrey believes that with strategic placement of aid, very poor countries could reach the bottom rung of the economic development ladder, thus bringing their population out of the extreme poverty zone.
In the documentary we see how this could actually work and how the developed world can afford to raise the poorest countries out of extreme poverty; he agrees with the MDG's calculation that 0.7 percent of the combined gross national product of first-world countries would be sufficient to achieve that goal.
