bottom-up development -20th c greatest innovations

Starting in 1972 around the friends and family of Sir Fazle Abed, Bangladesh's innovation of bottom up disaster relief and development has led to many of huamanity's greatest innovations- ones that give our species hope of sustainability (a 2020s race that makes 1960s space race look like very small beer)

Astronaut Ron Garan poses massive collaboration challenge ( more )
As world war 2 ended more than half the world's nations were still colonies - most of whose people were in miserable undeveloped states (next to no infrastructure, electricity grids and other continent-wide Roads to market had bypassed them as the rich developed nations extracted more and more). The least fortunate of peoples were girls in landlocked states partitioned by the strange maps of the colonisers that had set up neighbors cultures around opposing deities)

With independence, top down aid from rich nations (see the tragedy of the G7) became the norm but spiralling costly and low-trust system designs opposite to those adam smith had first wrote about trust as the cornerstone of markets in 1758 and which freed america's own happy independence in 1776

For more on the how top down aid lost touch with human development reality - see eg a younger jim kim's own attempt to argue that 50 years of world bank aid was enough until he understood that the world bak could do beter if it transformed around bottom-up empowerment approaches

(further references to jim kim- interestingly kim says diffenet nations listen to him on diferent topics- he's glad that china has chosen to use his knowledge on health and in exploring collaboration cities)

top down aid was passed  from foreign government to the new nations's government trickling down to reach some of the peopels need for develoment but often not the poorest. It was designed charities needing endless fund raising instead of models that sustained community's development model. The aid indutry created exterts who visited places and designed projects but didnt go and live with the epopels and pass on their skills

You can make a verly detailed list of aid spins a system of dependencies opposite dto the entrepreneurial freedoms and happiness that usa iteslf celebrated at its own independence

Bottom-up developement empowered gorls as community buildres - the ones whose familioes depended on building vilafes iut of nothing (no electictity, no modern communications, typically few transport routes beond muddy paths and pedal powered  transport like riockshaws.

Through all of this bangladesh became trusted space of long term partners- vilages became labs for the most exciting human developments - building health servoces served by vlage mothers, livelihod education for all, and when new technolgies such as mobile and solar came to the vikage -

extraordinary innovations like cashless banking- the only way the 2 billion poorest and unbanked are likely to buold finacial services

It is really its not clear whether jack ma himself would ever have understood big data small finance in time to win with alipay as china navigate 2008's extraordinary year of change - out of the clutches of a world financial crisis and into fintech that china could ensure never got trapped by big bad banking

formore on vakuing sustainability's greatest innovations see otr join us in  Dhaka (information ) October 1-7, 2018 at the first week long dialogue between the girl empowerment netwrkers of brac/bangladesh and the friends of tech's greatest wizard for sustainability goals jack ma

We have tracked why universities in the west have failed at every opportunity to offer this starting with a meeting at Paris HEC between Muhamamd Yunus and his 3 greatest French fans-frabck riboud ceo of danne
hiw younger directior whose first graduate job was with mother theresa
a hec professor whose first job was in a latin american microcredit where some of her poor clients died byt thanked her for developing a chnace for their children

about 50 of the world's most powerful people joined france's call to develop the greatest partnerships in understanding girls networks sustainability solutions but the yunus' bank was repossesed by government and instead of open sourcing all his knowledge he became a highly paid public speaker not the greatest educator of the sustainability generation- this role is now inherited by jack ma- may all the spirits bless him- may his youngest alumni map back Industrial Revolution 4 in time to green every community risisng round girl power

bangladesh is the world's number 1 economic model (0.0 pre-electricity leap 2.1 mobile digotal) for girls developing one of ten largest nations in populations, starting with almost nothing in 1971.Their families can be argued to be the biggest victim of British Colonisation - being colonised by britain then by Pakistan- the unatural conflict situations Bangladesh is surrounded by offers peaceful testomony to women nowhere else opn the planet begins to emulate from the bottom up . Todays borders prevent its peoples from celebrating the value its coastline could have if banking and belt road mapping is to be aligned with sustaining human race. In May 2018 the 20% partnership of jack ma and brac's biggest yet innovation bkash is gamechanger for bangladesh, China's relationship with south asia and every culture determined to celebrate girls livelihoods as much as boys.

this logic is consisntent with my fathers life work as an exponetntials investigatoive journalist at the post-war Economist and from moon landing onwards being first journalist to search what would 1000 times more commns tech exponentially result in - especially the multipliers of hi-tech futures from 1968 and east rising futures since 1962 - if anyone wants to tell stories of hiuman possibilities anchored by thois valuation belief please do

surely english speaking people need an alternative ideolgy than trump (war mongers and big men rule the wporld)- i believe my fathers friends apply logic entirely consiustent that the one queen victoria commissioned from the first 2 editors of the economist in turning English Constution from trade of slave-making empire to commonwealth- if you wish to question this with brett wilson several time great grandson of founder of the economist and resident of thailand-- lets do that

as keynes predicted in the laat chapter of the general theory of employment interest and money, we live in an age where economic wars are as deadly as physical wars - the same was conformed by adam smith scholars glasgow (2 remembrace parties macrea, japan emnassy in dhaka 2 remembrance partes macrae) mediated by zasheem who spent 4 years examining bangladesh circuloated in over 20000 print run of journal of social businees with new compendium edition released soon by zasheem and glasgow university with potentilal co-sponsors including qatar foundation and gordon brown

if you base valuation ideology is different but nearer normans than trumps tell us what it is

bkash and jack ma- the best news of the century?

Exponential Human Development: jack ma takes up to 20% of bangladesh and world largest cashless bank by sir fazle abed of brac, the quadirs money in motion of mit/dubai legatum and 46 years of girls developing bangaldesh

BING SAYsBAIDU SAYS - MODI & JINPING MEET (nb mobile most used browser in idia is owned bty alibaba)

whether you have been working on poverty in sudan since 1972 like ed, or like bob's group which with neville william president carter's energy czar has been changing the world with microsolar- yesterday the 2 most valuable belief systems in girls hold up half the sky ( the dream back on earth ever since the moon landing came together) with jack ma's fintech company alipay taking 20% shares in sir fazle's abed's fintech compant bkash

depending on language of market segmentation- is known by those whom ITdevelops as the world's largest cashless bank -its full service. whereas alipay started as being china's mobile credit card though has the data capabilities to blockchain banking everywhere if thats what china believes the most trssted sort of financial dsta analysts can do

today there remain 2 opposite sorts of extreme poverty 80% of which traps girls - and so needing preferential apps in most challenged communities whatever of the 17 sustainability goals you want to action learn by solving the challenge to the community facing its most violent challenge to girls, life and human dignity

poverty type 1 china knows the end poverty challenge of extremely isolated commuities its already developing edutech solutions  like a platform that connects 20000 teachers and stidents live- and who's pro bono half does that starting with the 40000 schools in china that still have under 10 children -thats a measure of remoteness- today beijings best high school teachers line up to serve these 20000 live stream classes through all school hours and the world number 1 servant leader university tsinghua is deep at work with jack ma on ai (robot teacher assistants have already passed exams students take to become a doctor -this suggest that practice and teamwork not examining individual memory recall are how to change education)

poverty type 2 bangladesh's extreme poverty (like much of indias) comes from 2 historic crises- the densest populations ever- one sad consquence of british empire's partitioning of india's independence; and starting indepenence from west pakistan in 1972 as a 100 million plus nation with zero finances and in 90% of the poeples case -no electricity - in bangladesh village can be defined asschumacher chapter 13 defined it as a community with none of the grids/ROADS (electricity, telecoms, railroads) that indsutrail revolution brought developed countries

in 1972 when both bangladesh and china started with nothing apart from desire to reform history of girls as an extreme underclass , brac and china partnered on rice science to end famine; and village para-health workers to solve the simplest causes (eg rural dehydration, vaccinations..) of infant or maternal death - but then the chinese diaspora now the 3rd richest finacisl network brought its Belt (superports) and Roads (including bullet trains adapted from japans civil engineers) to the coastlines of China

The game of development as those of us born in 20th century may have observed it comes in three halves -two of which china and bangladesh participated in freely

1 ie moves to indepenence from end of world war 2 to moon landing

2 after moon landing, and accelerating exponentially from 1972 - freedom to the peoples in the whole mainland of south and east eurasia which is primarily between latiuide 40 eg beijing and the latitude 20south eurasia  coastline but with those 2 peculiar landblocks that stretch down to near the equator on either side of bangladesh -
  •  ie the asean one down to singapore that is sandwiched between china's rich coastline and bangladesh poor one
  • the place we now separately call india
3 1996's "tech" games that netrworks like ed (mobile phones) and bob's (microsolar) brought to both bangaldesh andchina

of course in the case of mobiles there were many partners ed can list from his knowledge of satellite investment to telenors knowledge as a mobile operator to soros as the billionnaire who has dared back leapfrog tests to the banagldesh diaspora hubbed out of mit and dubai who invented the ideas of mobile for the poorest women villagers and first asked muhammd yunus to test it with his network

what happened next 1997 is peculiar - people like the clintons and queen sofia started the annual microcreditsummit ;later amplified by clinton global summits goal 165 million dollar library- creadit-summit rocketed as the first western annual event to unite the world in collaborating around millennium goals and later sustainability goals- whats peculiar is instead of studying the coming of technology and bangladesh as the greatest community education networks girls developed -credit summit looked back at manual finance while firwarding the big bang view of globalisation - muhammad yunus was the celebrity spokesman- his 1997 opening speech coined the slogan yes you can later to be obama's campaign slogan- a biography was writen around hims as banker for the poor (foreword prince charles) not community educator of technoloiust for the poor- inconveniently this fundraisers network and the well intention results lobbyists spiralled further and further away from youth learning end poverty's solutions and into the hands of big finances lobbyists-perhaps nothing is sadder than this very new york story

over the decade 1997-2006: yunus was awarded the nobel prize; the french started global socail buisness partnerships with him aimed to change the future consciousness of market sectirs like milk danone, water veolia, banking eg credit agroicole and mba cousres HEC, and eagri intel

instead yunus lost his network to sheikh hasina governments and with the exception of BRAC none of microcredits manual banks fully survived fintech without being taken over in ipo's and other stuff- as the subprime crisis hit -all the knowledge of big bad banking was effectively used in western development's highest social circles to get rid of microcredits including the one in obama's black inner city communit south chicagos shorebank -ironically obama's mother had been co-founder og womens world banking having applied some of bangladesh's spirit to parts of 1980s indonesia; ironically kenya became for a few years the space that pioneered mpesa but never owned entirely by the poorest; so the big data small coders outside of china (from those who had landed in banagldesh in 1996 and those who built mpesa in kenya) converged round sir fazle abed- as a decade of youth underemployment contiunued in the west due to subprime, brac built the world's largest cashless bank - and was also quietly invited to be the benchmark for all jobs creating education laureates

UP a few hundred miles nortth of bangladesh, china with zero non- state owned companiesas recently as 1976 decided as rest of world was being subprimed in 2008 to let youth's technologists like jack ma create eevry kind of "tech" startups - 5 million last year including some that platform big data small the likes of which have never been dreamed let alone done before
so yesterday was the best news three halves of the world (women, youth, poor) all of whom have prebvioiuly had less than 10% voice in the future- 
can we unite these movements somewhere relevant - eg the greatet learning summit every held in new york - wise un general assembly sept 2018 or belt road summits beijing may 2019 or wherever 71 leaders who already see belt road netwirking as empowerring girls and boys to be the sustainability generation bceome 72 (modi's india) and 73 (kims n korea) - maybe there's even a 20% peace divident to invest in Girlstech beyond borders unions like yesterdays as they ground 1000 times more comunicatiosn technolgy than 1946 and hopefully match this worldwide with civile enginneers new belt road mapping

of course pretty much everyone circulated knows far deeper heroines who worked from ground up than I can ecidence - but dont we all need to linking now -to plug and play with the same maps? and if we can just look at the sketches jinping, ma and sir fazle help BGB (BillionGirlsBoys) see - we could all ask how to map the future sustaining our children - inclkuding all those in communitues in usa who havent yet seen any advance in hiuman livelihhod opportunities since 1996 or whicheverother  abused girls networks you know most ...
