>EVENT: White Band Day 3

Here’s an excerpt from the Millenium Campaign about economic justice (http://www.millenniumcampaign.org/site/pp.asp?c=grKVL2NLE&b=138312).

International trade carries enormous potential for reducing poverty worldwide. A 1% increase in the developing countries’ share of world exports would lift 128 million people out of poverty. But the current global trading system discriminates against developing countries and hinders poor country participation in the global economy. The two biggest problems are agricultural policies in rich countries and poor countries access to international markets.
