By the numbers

  • Less that 2%

    of the average person’s online news reading is done on foreign news sites. We may not be as globalized as we think

  • 1 Billion

    people subsist on less than $1 a day. Unfortunately, many have been excluded from Globalisation’s positive impact.

  • 3 Billion

    people live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty, that's less than $1.25 a day.
