The speaker was very engaging and well prepared. My one criticism is that the talk didn't address the title topic "Ending Extreme Poverty without Endangering Ecosystems". Based on the research presented (which was very limited in the field) the connection between poverty alleviation and ecosystem destruction isn't clearly understood. It is known almost inherently but not truly quantified.
Engaging and thoroughly enjoyable. The presentation and then polling using Kahoots was very informative. I thought the film, Die goettliche Ordnung, was super at depicting the 1970's in Switzerland and had a number of moments of humor.
