LIVE Debate Tonight

Dambisa Moyo, author of the controversial book, Dead Aid, will be taking part in a debate later tonight about the effectiveness of giving money to fight poverty. Also on her side of the argument will be economist Hernando De Soto. Stephen Lewis and ONE organization's Paul Collier will be on the opposing side of the debate, arguing that foreign aid is, in fact, the solution to poverty. You can watch a live streaming of the debate online here, at 6:45PM EST.
