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 recent master's thesis by queen's university canada's Fateh Mohammad goes into remarkable depth as to how the first 10 years of brac embedded culture of paulo freire and impact on all education programs and indeed all partnership initiatives

between 2012-2017 washington dc was a breadth of fresh air thanks to appointment to world bank of jim kim- his life - both studies and work - and pretty much all american health for the poorest leaders are inspired by franciscan values; latin americans i talked to in dc explained while the 1960s world was cheering on ameruca's moon race- latin americans were debating what on earth is it that we admire from the catholic culture that colonised us- it was the franciscan way that many nations chose- while freire was a brazilian applying franciscan views to education of the oppressed kim and others talk of

 pop- preferential option poor being a movement linking many spanish speaking nations including columbia peru and the source connection with the Latin American liberation theology movement of the mid-20th century. As a developed theological principle, the option for the poor was first articulated by Fr. Gustavo GutiérrezO.P. in his landmark work, A Theology of Liberation (1971). Gutiérrez asserts that the principle is rooted in both the Old and New Testaments and claims that a preferential concern for the physical and spiritual welfare of the poor is an essential element of the Gospel.- in turn guterrez references el salvador's oscar romero --https://ndsmcobserver.com/2014/09/gutierrez-highlights-popes-preferential-option-for-the-poor/

its the duty of any franciscan leader to serve by going and living and learning with the poor- as well as bring relevant knowhow such servant leaders observe what systems are broken/ who can they bring in to mend these systems

and first of all every time there are tech advances how to apply the advance to the poorest as a priority- this helps explain how for example brac parters have co-created the worlds largest cashless banking system www.bkash.com in terms of population of customers and trgeted previouslu unbanked with such advantages that unlike money banking all digital transaction costs are practically the same so amouts too small to save when a clerk had to collect and record the saving are now economic to process
