Reviews about Poverty, Inc.
A very insightful documentary that takes on a difficult issue. It deals with foreign aid, but has many concepts that apply to domestic charity. It will rock your world.
I loved it it was very well documented and expressed.
Very informative and pertinent information. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the 3rd world countries and the continued poverty problem and our failure to alter its course.
Everybody who gives their old clothing to Bono and Bob should see this movie. I've been traveling to Africa almost every year since 2004 and I've seen with my own eyes the piles of clothes and shoes being sold on the roadside in Kenya and Zimbabwe just this year.

Excellent documentary that clearly explains how NGO's feed themselves off of the misery of others.
All is not good in the world and especially in the world where the west is supposedly lifting, supporting and helping the "3rd world" folks.

The real reason destitution persists is that dumping worldly goods on others does not solve their long-term issue that the systems in their own countries persist in keeping the foot on their necks.I ...
A thought provoking movie. But really harsh on Bono. I mean, he's Bono. In seriousness, this is a must watch for anyone thinking of getting involved in charity, NGO, or "mission" work.
Bought this by mistake thinking it was the same as a PBS program of the same name. Not very good.

Poverty Inc.: Finally A Film Exposes A Deeply Flawed Industry
Filmmakers love an industry exposé: Gasland; Super Size Me; Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room; Inside Job; Capitalism: A Love Story. The list of “independent” filmmakers who attack a particular industry -- or sometimes all industries -- is a long one.
