A Good Life: According to Peter Singer


Summary
In this three-part series prominent Australians present their views and ideas on ‘a good life’. Each program features one guest whose argument is then examined in interview with Compass presenter Geraldine Doogue. In Episode 3, Australian philosopher and ethicist Peter Singer talks about alleviating world poverty, the subject of his latest book The Life You Can Save. He argues the affluent West has a moral responsibility to help the world’s extreme poor, and that if we do – we will lead a better life as a result.
