    Amartya Sen sets up a trust in India and Bangladesh with his Nobel money.

    He donated 400000$ for trust. It will be used for systemstic efforts to eradicate poverty.

    Thats excellent. I know Sen was good friends with Mahbub ul Haq (Pakistan's once Finance Minister and creator of the UN's Human Development Index). He even delivered his eulogy.

    Is there any particular reason he's only concentrating on India and Bangladesh? Or better yet, any particular reason why you feel it necessary to inform us that he is only concentrating on Bangladesh and India?

      BD is doing some systematic efforts to poverty eradication stuff. Grameen bank is a pointer. I do not know too much about grameen bank. but it is reasonably systematic effort to reduce poverty.

      400000$ is not much money. I am bit surprised that he included BD, but that maybe due to Bengali affinity.
