[00:00.10]If you believe that every life has equal value,

如果你认为生命都是平等的,

[00:03.37]it's revolting to learn that some lives are seen as worth saving and others are not.

那么当你发现某些生命被挽救了,而另一些生命被放弃了,你会感到无法接受。

[00:11.13]We said to ourselves: "This can't be true.

我们对自己说:“事情不可能是如此。

[00:14.41]But if it is true, it deserves to be the priority of our giving."

如果这是真的,那么它理应是我们努力的头等大事。”

[00:20.18]So we began our work in the same way anyone here would begin it.

所以,我们俩用在座任何人都会想到的方式开始工作。

[00:27.01]We asked: "How could the world let these children die?"

我们心存疑问:“这个世界怎么可以眼睁睁看着这些孩子死去?”

[00:31.55]The answer is simple, and harsh.

答案很简单,也很残酷。

[00:34.25]The market did not reward saving the lives of these children,

在市场,拯救儿童是一项没有利润的工作,

[00:39.10]and governments did not subsidize it.

政府也不会提供任何补助。

[00:42.26]So the children died because their mothers and their fathers had no power in the market and no voice in the system.

这些儿童之所以会死亡,是因为他们的父母在经济上没有实力,在政治上没有发言权。

[00:51.49]But you and I have both.

但是,你们和我在经济上有实力,在政治上有发言权。

[00:54.21]We can make market forces work better for the poor

那么我们就可以让市场更好地为穷人服务,

[00:59.14]if we can develop a more creative capitalism-

如果我们能够设计出一种更有创新性的资本主义制度——

[01:03.20]if we can stretch the reach of market forces

如果我们可以改变市场,

[01:07.14]so that more people can make a profit, or at least make a living,

让更多的人可以获得利润,或者至少可以维持生活——

[01:12.18]serving people who are suffering from the great inequities.

那么,这就可以帮到那些正在极端不平等的状况中受苦的人们;

[01:17.40]We also can press governmetns around the world

我们还可以向全世界的政府施压,

[01:20.59]to spend taxpayer money in ways that better reflect the values of the people who pay the taxes.

要求他们将纳税人的钱,花到更体现纳税人价值的地方。

[01:29.51]If we can find approaches

如果我们能够找到这样一种方法,

[01:31.52]that meet the needs of the poor in the ways that generate profits for business and votes for politicians,

既可以帮到穷人,又可以为商人带来利润,为政治家带来选票,

[01:39.13]we will have found a sustainable way to reduce inequity in the world.

那么我们就找到了一种减少世界性不平等的可持续的发展道路。

[01:44.24]This task is open-ended.

这个任务是永无止境的。

[01:47.19]It can never be finished.

它不可能全部完成,

[01:49.27]But a conscious effort to answer this challenge can change the world.

但是任何自觉地解决这个问题的尝试,都将会改变这个世界。
