Bob Harris: International Bank of Bob
Rampart Campus Rm W101-102
The International Bank of Bob is Bob’s fast-paced and surprisingly funny live presentation about how microloans can mitigate poverty by empowering individuals and how audience members can feel deeply connected to helping good people all over our incredibly interconnected world. Bob Harris is an author, comedian, TV writer (Bones, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), travel writer, and quiz show champ (Jeopardy!, Greed). Through his work and travels he became overwhelmed by the brutal contrast between the world’s rich and poor. He felt compelled to do something about it and began providing thousands of tiny loans to small entrepreneurs in more than 65 countries. He then followed his money around the globe, from Peru to Bosnia to Rwanda to Cambodia and onward.
