Ending Modern Slavery
STATE OF AFFAIRS 03/07/11: Dr. Kevin Bales' blueprint to end modern slavery earned him this year's Grawemeyer Award for Ideas Improving World Order. It's estimated that 27 million people are enslaved; human trafficking and slavery are intertwined with many facets of the global economy. In Dr. Bales' book Ending Slavery: How We Free Today’s Slaves, he outlines a plan under which he believes slavery can be stopped within 30 years at a cost of less than $20 billion. Join us Monday when we talk with Dr. Bales about his work.
