Ever wonder why consumer electronics is so expensive in India? One answer may lie in the fact that India is a poor country, and the poor usually have to pay more for everything – housing, access to water, electricity, credit, you name it. This video takes a look at who are the beneficiaries of this system of inequity. Sketching out mind-maps is such an amazing way to explain things – no wonder they have a marker board in every meeting room.

About this video: Based on Prof. Ananya Roy’s popular Global Poverty class at the University of California, Berkeley, The #GlobalPOV Project video series combines critical social theory with improvised art and live-action sketch to explore issues of global poverty, development and foreign aid.
