Directors of the Global Financial Capital of New York
to Present Comprehensive Program to Eliminate Global Poverty


Thursday, July 19 • 11:30 AM
Global Financial Capital of New York
70 Broad Street

Directors of the Global Financial Capital of New York will present their comprehensive plan to eliminate global poverty during the “Global Conference on Poverty Removal” to be held on Thursday, July 19, at the Global Financial Capital of New York, 70 Broad Street.

Keynote speakers will include John Hagelin, world-renowned quantum physicist and executive director of the International Center for Invincible, and Dr. Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace.

“Removal of poverty is a project that is promoted by our deepest sentiment of life—that the nature of life is bliss; but our people in front of us are exposed to scarcity and suffering,” said Dr. Morris, who also serves as President of Maharishi University of Management in Iowa, USA.

“It puts us to pain and shame that half of our dear world family is living in dire poverty. Therefore we are, on our own level, and even from the level of existing wealth in the world, inspired to make efforts to eliminate poverty and raise the standard of living of poor families in our world. The path to be adopted is to give to the poor education and training about the nature of life, and not to give them ‘minimum wages’ but fairly good level of wages, so that they can live in proper homes, have proper clothing and healthy food, and sufficient means for the education of their children—at least corresponding to the middle income bracket.”

Dr. Morris said the Global Financial Capital of New York plans to employ the poor and give them the skills of starting organic agriculture in their own country. “There are more than 40 million hectares of unused, fertile, agricultural land in the world. This gift of God is available on Earth, and by making use of it we can eliminate poverty in our world,” Dr. Morris said.

Dr. Morris said that the Global Financial Capital of New York will offer the RAAM—the global development currency of the Global Country of World Peace—to governments, chambers of commerce, farmers’ associations, and other development agencies as a “catalytic currency,” which will circulate for a limited time to finance agricultural and other startups.

The conference will be webcast live at Members of the press are invited to attend in person.
