GiveDirectly is the brainchild of four Harvard and MIT Graduate students. Their idea is pretty damn simple: give poor families in Kenya $1,000, no strings attached. They can buy whatever they want with it; use it however they want! GiveDirectly has no say whatsoever. One of the founders, Paul Niehaus, joins Jason Rantz to discuss whether or not he can solve world poverty.
