If you watched the final episode of HBO's Entourage last Sunday you know that Vince is getting married to Sophia, Turtle is a millionaire, E and Sloan are trying to reconcile and Ari and Mrs. Ari are starting a new life in Italy -- maybe. If you don't watch Entourage and have no idea what I'm talking about, well, just bear with me.
Yes, Vince is getting married to Sophia, but would Sophia have said "yes" to his proposal if he didn't show a real interest in UCLA Anderson Professor Bhagwan Chowdhry's Financial Access at Birth (FAB) program?
We'll never know for sure, but Chowdhry's appearance on the popular program did help raise FAB's profile. (Learn about FAB here and here.) In a brand new interview he did with Fox Business, show host Shibani Joshi confesses that, while FAB has gotten its share of publicity, she had not heard of the program until Chowdhry's Entourage appearance. When asked about the difficulty of bringing all the necessary entities together to make a FAB work, Chowdhry was straight to the point:
"Poverty needs no time. Poverty is something that needs to be tackled anytime. This is a long-term plan. We are talking about ... it will take a decade or two before this makes a huge impact. So, I think we need to start now. There is no good time or bad time to tackle poverty."
