Future of Work

“What we need now, more than anything, is a democratization of opportunity,” says Chuck Slaughter, founder and CEO of the non-profit organization Living Goods in the USA.

In this video, Slaughter explains how something as simple as access to micro-finance has empowered half a billion new entrepreneurs in some of the world’s poorest places. From social media to direct selling, he explores the tools that help to create opportunities and lift people out of poverty in emerging economies.
