Bono is deeply aroused by the possibility of zero poverty in 20302/27/2013
World citizens living in extreme poverty will be thrilled to know that — if they can hang on for 17 more years — the poverty rate will be zero. This insightful reckoning comes from the lead singer of U2 and self-proclaimed "factivist" Bono, who spoke at this year's TED conference. "I thought, forget the rock opera, forget the bombast, the only thing I would be singing today is the facts," revealed the multi-millionaire. "For I have truly embraced my inner nerd.” Based on the poverty rate falling from 43 percent in 1990 to 21 percent in 2010, 2030 will be the payoff date. "That's the zero zone," Bono said. "For numbers crunchers like us, that's the erogenous zone. It's fair to say I'm sexually aroused by the collating of data." [Source]
