Global Poverty Is in Retreat as Poor Countries Catch Up - Bloomberg
But perhaps the biggest flaw in Hickel’s case is that it ignores all the other data corroborating the story that poverty has fallen. Gates didn’t just tweet that one graph -- he tweeted a set of six. Two of the other graphs show dramatic increases in literacy rates and years of education. A third shows a steep fall in infant mortality. Still other graphs that Gates didn’t tweet show declines in hunger and undernourishment. If global poverty had really increased, these improvements would almost certainly not have been possible.

The truth is that the past 25 years have seen dramatic improvements in the lives of the poor in many parts of the world. China has outperformed the field, of course, but India, Bangladesh, Indonesia and other populous developing nations have experienced steady growth in recent years.
