The Economist continues to mislead, here through blatant falsehood, despite formal complaints through the Press Complaints Commission and further communications to the editors:


"In 2000 the members of the UN agreed to try to cut poverty to half of the 1990 level by 2015."

Fewer, but still with us:
The world has made great progress in eradicating extreme poverty
