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?

reviews of 3 books on abed

 3 books sounds remarkably few for someone who advanced lives of quarter of earthlings directly and gives  sustainability networkers access to the deepest learning contexts from the bottom (there's no point actioning UN sdgs leaving out the hardest to reach)

-however the world is fortunate that there are at least 100 chunky abed speeches - sampler coming soon

one of the reasons authors may have been reluctant is parts of brac partnerships doubled in reach every 3 years as demonstrated with bracs field force going from a handful of village coaches to over 100000 ; its quite hard to pitch a publisher a book which at best will tell half the story; this got even more challenging to map as partners doubled in global reach every 3 years of abed's last 15- 

for those interested in brac in bangladesh villages to 2011 this list of teaching resources is a good starting point
