WITH ALL THE monumental spin surrounding the looming, United States financial crisis, most would be hard-pressed to notice two potent little events taking place this week: The annual meeting of The Clinton Global Initiative and a special, online event from The Tony Blair Faith Foundation.
The Millennium Development Goals, or MDG, are very rarely mentioned by the MSM (mainstream media). The MDG contains 8 stated ‘goals’:
1. Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
2. Achieve universal primary education
3. Promote gender equality and empower women
4. Reduce child mortality
