My name is Joel G.K. I am currently working on an education reform PPP project as an English language advisor. While international economics and politics aren't a part of my job as an advisor, my mind invariably wanders off in that direction on a daily basis. This blog is my musing.

Ultimately, I want to know why poverty persists, why the whole world isn't 'developed', what actions can be taken to improve the lives of the poor and how I can help to inspire a transformation in a status quo that has failed to address these problems on a systemic level.

I also easily distracted and curious about many other things, as you may find out.

This blog should ultimately labour to tease out some coherence from certain pockets of global affairs. I hope your curiosity is piqued :)
