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?

5.4 abed search asia's 100 most collab universities for youth as sdg generation


from 2007-2019 this was one of fazle abed's biggest brainstorming gravities; i was lucky to hear and arrange for young journalists from different hemispheres to listen in during 15 trips i made from washington dc to bangladesh- i have been privileged to work in asia on over 50 journeys since 1983; bangladesh went from zero in 2007to most visited place because for me nobody's alumni will ever be more sustainbly valuable than abed's- nb i like to declare my biasses

abed had dedicated 50 years to a billion village women ending extreme poverty - at birth of bangladesh it was 90% rural; at his death 70% rural; by 2050 the aim is 50%

therefore abed said if my alumni have 3 goals while never deserting women end poverty, grow middle class and go green could be optimal triangularistion as far as my lifetime can see; urgently it will take at least 100 asian universities sharing solutions with 2020s youth if there is ever to be a first sdg generation- some rough ideas on which nations might lead in mapping this collab platform are here
