A Way to Treat Poverty

Great column in the New York Times on conditional cash benefit programs in various countries around the world.  It is helping children stay in school longer and be healthier.  I just love innovations that seek very practical ways to help people.  They may not all be successful, but one learns from failures, too...and it is nice to have something being done.  It is too easy to get overwhelmed with the scale of problems in the world and do nothing.
