What are the Dangers?

[Create an illustration similar to Slide 6 here?]

What happens anywhere affects us everywhere.

Extreme global poverty threatens us, too:

  • Famine not only affects one region. It also increases food prices for everyone around the world.
  • Epidemics spread more easily. Ebola is only one example.
  • Environmental destruction – As people struggle to survive, they’re forced to use resources unsustainably. Pollution endangers everyone.
  • Political chaos can spread. This leads to riots, ruthless dictators and wars. Failed states are safe havens for pirates and terrorists.
  • Refugee crises strain the resources and stability of many nations.

Terrorism – Extreme poverty and gross inequality spur resentment and  encourage acts of terror.

To solve this, we want to avoid big mistakes.
