Fighting Poverty in Paraguay

Here is an interesting press release by the World Bank about a poverty reduction project in Paraguay.  This project funded at about $1 Billion US dollars is an ambitious effort to increase the incomes of the poorest 40% of the population.  I am not sure of the success of these large scale development projects but it is a worthy goal.  Perhaps we could do something similar in the USA.
