What is the best way to address world poverty?
Ok, well, this seems like a huge topic, but there are a variety of ways to approach this question -- so le'ts start some debate on the issue...
With 10% of what is spent on arms we can end world hunger. Imagine how life would be if the other 90% of the arms budget went toward improving people’s lives!
there is a good book that was written in the US. i forget who wrote it but its called "The 2% Solution" which basically argues that by utilizing only 2% of the U.S's total GDP, they could have universal healthcare.
Concerning poverty, I suppose stronger international agreements is a stepping-stone, but the real barrier to any true success - is the reality of global discriminatory energy policies. Povery is used as leverage to justify environmental regulatory policies

I also wrote a hub page about micro-finance which may give you ideas.
Promote birth control and abortion. Stop "rescuing" (or trying to) failed families and cultures. Yeah, this will get a lot of "down" votes, but any other suggestions will not solve (or alleviate) the problems of overpopulation and stupid cultures and religions). So, go ahead, keep wringing your hands and trying to pee into the wind.
