    Aims and Scope

    Nearly one billionpeople worldwide suffer from hunger. This book examines the question of what inhabitants of wealthy counties owe these people. The author focuses less on the question of how a better world can be created and more on the question of what well-off individuals are obligated to do in light of this obvious injustice and immense suffering. The book argues for a common responsibility to eliminate extreme poverty and speaks to individuals in their roles as citizens, consumers, and even moral subjects.

    "Hilde Johnson, eine norwegische Entwicklungspolitikerin hat einmal die Idee formuliert: „When we can put a man on the moon, why can we not eradicate poverty? The answer is – we can. We can, but we must do more, we must want more.” (211). Was es braucht, dieses “Mehr” begrifflich zu machen und zu argumentieren, das findet sich in dem Buch von Barbara Bleisch."
