Despite a significant reduction in the proportion of the world population living in extreme poverty in recent decades, billions still lack access to food, shelter, clean water and other basic necessities. And because of this, says investor and UC regent Richard Blum, people of means need to do more to relieve those struggling in developing countries. Blum joins us to discuss his new book, "An Accident of Geography: Compassion, Innovation and the Fight Against Poverty," which tells the stories of dozens of successful approaches used to advance global development and alleviate extreme poverty.
