20th century intelligence - ending poverty of half world without electricity -although Keynes 1936 (last capter general theiry money inetrest emplymen) asked Economists to take hipocrati oath as the profession that ended extreme poverty, most economists did the opposite. Whats not understandable is how educatirs failed to catalogue the lessons of the handful who bottom-up empowered vilages to collaboratively end poverty. There are mainly 2 inteligences to understand- Borlaug on food; fazle abed on everything that raised life expectancy in tropical viage asia from low 40s to 60s (about 7 below norm of living with electricity and telecomes). Between 1972 and 2001, Abed's lessons catalogued in this mooc had largelu built the nation of Bangladesh and been replicated with help of Unicef's James Grant acroo most tropical asian areas. What's exciting is the valley's mr ad mrs steve jobs invted Fazle Abed to share inteligences 2001 at his 65th birthday party. The Jobs and frineds promised to integrate abed's inteligence into neighborhod university stanfrd which in any event wanted Jobs next great leap the iphone. The Valley told abed to start a university so that women graduates from poor and rich nations could blend inteligence as Abed's bottom of the pyramid vilage began their journey of leapfrog modles now that gridd infarstructures were ni longer needed for sdiar and mobile. Abed could also help redesign the millennium goals which were being greenwashed into a shared worldwide system coding frame by 2016. There re at Abed's 80th birtday party , the easy bitwas checking this mooc was uptodate. The hard bit - what did Abed mean by his wish to headhunt a taiwanese american to head the university's 3rd decade starting 2020?

 this 2005 interview of abed expresses his founding belief - and the values mindset all 100000 brac cxo-workers celebrate of paulo freire's- abed used to talk of the 3e's of any microfranchise solution for empowering women to combate extre poverty - 

effective -does what you intend

efficient - the most value connecting way fir poorest to do this

expandable -the challenges of extreme poverty for rural women are more analagous than different- why wouldnt you replicate effective/efficient microfranchise anywhere

please note part of a reason for linking you through 30 connected networks is change- when a partner brings you both mobile and solar to a village that previously hasnt even been connected to electrivcity grids- there will emerge better solutions though you will need to support the very pooresat- be very careful -in the whole field of development there is a great risk of leaving out those who are most challenged - international aid organisations often dont even have the relationships to economically find out who the most challenged are- by being with th most challenged within the first year of the new nation kissinger called the worlds basket case - friends of abed always knew who's who in every respect

from 19 dec 2019 its the duty of the 1000 best partners of abed never to fail to empower the billion women at the bottom - even as he also spent his final 20 years preparing a triangularisation- from 1971 to 2020 bangladesh went from 90% rural to 70%- it is expected to be fifty-fifty in 2050 if indeed sustainability is with our species!

end extreme poverty

grow middle class 

go green
