In April 2005 on World Poverty Day it was estimated that at least 30,000 children were dying each day as a result of the poverty they endured.
On that same day a new Pope was crowned and hundreds of thousands of people came from around the globe to see the event in Rome
Millions saw it on TV.
The cameras did not show any of the 30,000 children that died that day.
How is it that the world can be more interested in seeing a new Pope crowned than it is in the death of 30,000 children, every day?
" Capitalism & Other Kids' Stuff" tries to find answers to questions about why we live the way we do and possible alternatives.
