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?

2.1 2.2 2.3 2.4 2.5 2.6

 Bangladesh is 8th most popolous nation and of the 20 most populous the one with the least export markets relate to industrial era and mineral resources. Being at river delta it owns effectively no mineral resources. Actually because of the influence of small island nations, a majority have nor owned resources relevant to industrial exports relying on on nature's other resources. Is worth thinking about this as one more logic of how the non-carbon age wll be more equitable if we ever get there. Bangkadesh's exports are about a third crops; a third "remittances" a third garments which it has done well to be world number 2 historically (albeit at the low end of most submarkets and in a sector with patchy human rights)

Overall BRAC shows us the sort of value markets that need to be designed to the advantage of the poorest - whether in this case by a trust overall owned to be pro-poor or by goverbment

BRAC's overall positive cashflows come from being present in almost all elements of the financial and tech  sector  and by 3 designs

enterprise which it designs as sector market leading business so as to integrste sector as pro-poor (eg agriculture as the biggest livelihood sectir needs to be pro poor)

micro franchises with a natioal sector which deliver positive cash flow within a village of women owned businesses

sometimes consulting or advising on a worldwide scaling of a solution almosr always first designed by brac for bangladeshis
