DAY I ALMOST CHOKED EATING SUSHI WITH FAZLE ABED; he was telling the story- my greatest mistake was spending my life savings on building homes for 100000 refugees. Being an engineer I knew how to do that. But as we were opening the meta-village a young lady came up to me : what education/enterprises do we need to prevent dozens of girls dying every week? So she & I learnt we needed to innovate 5 last mile services for any space girls are born- safe homes, education, health, food, finance; in searching we soon found a billion village mothers wanting to COLLAB. ..mothers 1

2025report.com countdown - part 2 2007 to 20 dec 2019
2025report.com part 1 back from future was told by economist reporters first published in english 1984 last published in swedish 1993; combined with bio of von neuman thrugh the 1990s; and norman macrae's last birthday dinner at the royal automobile club 2008
like many people 9/11 was a wake up call; i try to donate at least a day a week to pro bono stuff that mightgive me a new understanding; i volunteered to host the eu's knowledge board section on emotional itelliegence - the nearest topic they had to auditing trust my mathematical passion that i had spent the 1990s trying to ember =d in worlds lagest advertising and acunting agencies wihou success
knowledgeboard's debates across all eu contries also got observed from other parts of the world - an australian medic asked could i help run the reception at a summit he was hosting inlondon involving experts on globla reconcilation from 50 countries; sure thing and the next year i was presenting at his summit held in delhi near parliament at the indira national cultural centre - much more grassroot tha you can imagine - it was filled withgandhians and iur accomodation was the local ymca - wj=hile i researche asian markets for ubilever since 1982 - i was now opening my eyes to deeper system crises still unreolved by the old english empire...
part 2 aka ABEDMOOC.comour first trip to bangladesh xmas 2007 a year after george soros; unlike soros we met yunus first connected with adam smith scholars who were helping him design nearly free nursing colleges; we made 10000 dvds of all yunus partner celebrating the coming of the nobel prize judges to speak to dhaka youth in 2008; but next summer when we hosted a 69th birthday party for yunus bring the bbc's number 2 green broadcaster things started going politically wrong; from then on we decided the knowhow of fazle abed was deeper
it turns out that abed did not start with microfinance; in 1972 he built 14000 homes for refugees- a community of 100000 of the very poorest in the world; next he observed what happened in this village district far away frtom electricity grids; half the population had no livelihoods; basically women were locked down to village homes where they were expected to breed children- half of whom died before the age of 5 mainly through dehydration or lack of nutrition
so abed designed a microfranchise where a village women could earn a livelihood going door to door to 300 villagers selling non-prescription medicine and giving away the free oral rehydration solution that ends infant death by diarrhea as long as the mother does it in time
it turned out that east of bangladesh poorest village mothers in tropical china needed the same networking microfranchises; over and over bangladesh poorest women and chinese poorest women shared solutions- next cam rice science and vegetable science to end famine -
only when abed had tens of thousands of women earning small positive incomes did he design microfinance
so an abed mooc really needs to catalogue 6 types of solutions- one space peer weekly slot in a 6 week rehearsal of asia end poverty's -aka rural keynesianism the economist 1977- deepest ever compendium of solutions
and one abed did not talk about place branding - the last thing abed wanted to do was be a problem to the government; he always wanted to cooperate but keep womens netwrks transpatent trusted by connecting the deepest life critical data empowering their person to person networks
but in the last 20 years of abed's life 2 things started happening; workdwide tech partners designed experiments in bangla viaages; 3hat couod village women do with mobile or with solar
meanwhile at a private dinner paerty in silicon valley mrs steve jobs asked abed why have you never shared your solutions globally; so abed knew more about how the billion poorest contintal asians ended extreme poverty than anv=yone as he lived with it 1970-2019; before thqat he had been regional ceo for shell oil so he also knew how geographically bangladesh people had got the shortest stick of the colonia area
first england had colonised their region as well as india
in the 19th century asia's biggest port was calcutta mainly connecting bangladesh
then when thr british moved the capital of idia to delhi and gave up trading much through calcutta as they were now ruling trea and sice trade diresctly out of hong kond and the caton areas
then when the englist ithdrew -declaration of indepenence assigned the region of bangladesh as colony of west pakistan
thats where sir fazles 50 year support of his poorest village peoples beigins in 1970- one millionn people killed all around him by cyclone; another million by the war of indepence and the refugee dispalement; another million by dehydration and starvation
so nobody really knew more about what the place we call bangldesh needed to develop from worlds poorest nation and 8th most populous - and as an ngo he aleays sought to advance 2 things- empower the vllage mothers to end poverty; empoer their children to expand a rising middle class
look around the world- does anywhere have a person whosr knowhow mattered more to a billion people; isnt it wrth catalogi=uing the foudations in a mooc before tech and sdg challenges spin so fast that nobody will know the whole story of the place brand of bangladesh and its worldwide collaboration with lives matters communities
