Extreme Poverty

I recently listened to Dr. Scott Todd talk about how global business was one of the top reasons for the drastic drop in extreme poverty in the world. He quoted that extreme poverty has dropped from 51% of the world's population in 1981 to 26% in 2005 to 9.8% in 2015! I was encouraged to listen as I prepare to teach about the economics of business and personal finance in my AP Microeconomics and Personal Finance classes this coming semester. Please pray that God would not only impact myself and the students that I teach, but that ultimately He would impact many (including those in extreme poverty) in the country of Nicaragua through what we learn together!
