By this point, readers will have learned how the poorer half of the world's people work and what has been done in different countries to help the poor earn their way out of poverty. For readers who may be asking themselves “What can I do?” this short chapter talks about some of the possibilities ranging from helping spread information and good ideas to making companies more aware of the situations of the workers they employ to working for better public policies to devoting part of one's time or money to help solve the problems of the poor to making the fight against global poverty one's life's work.
