"Frankie, that G8 idea has really taken off."

"You mean Live 8? Oh, of course, boss, great! ... Makes sense too. Cancelling debt helps poorer countries get ahead."

"Correct. We need more initiatives like that, Frankie!" 

"Well, I'm glad you think so, sir. How about transferring the Live 8 spirit to our staff loans?"


"Hey, how'd the boss take your loans proposal?"

"Erm… He's thinking about it… "

The world can be a complex place. See how Frankie and his colleagues at Global.org grapple with the thorny public policy issues of our time, in this cartoon strip.
