breaking the last empire : americans need to vote now are they separate and superior speciesn OR are they like the rest of the 8 billion of us? new summer 2019 : drucker ::::60 years ago dad, norman macrae, started the first of 100 conversations on AI (Artificial Intelligence), He had just surveyed how Japan was rising (lifting potentially Asians everywhere out of colonial era poverty) round brilliant engineers (bullet trains, container superports , microelectronics, the most reliable engines in the world) - from tokyo he brought back a pocket calculator- what would schools and the world be like if everyone had one of these?

Within a few years the world was debating if tech helps man reach the moon is there any mission impossible on earth.
5G 2020s (4 3 2) 1 G 1970s
And Gordon Moore of Intel had just written a paper promising that microelectronic engineers would improve tech 100 fold every G decade to 2020s -that's a trillion fold more powerful microchips in 2030 than man raced to the moon with.

Fazle Abed

Nobody in the 20th century has contributed more to "the curriculum" of ending poverty of the poorest than Sir Fazle Abed. What is amazing is the failure lof western universities to come close to teaching this curriculum

Professors go wrong by totally misdescribing what brac does
Go back to 1972 and you will seeSir Fazle Abed went to live in one of the poorest regions lon earyh with no access to electricity and which was suffering at least 3 crises
cyclone that had lkilled more people locally than any preiously seen
a war of independence that had caused much distruction as well as dis;location of people
a famine that killed a million people

what sir fazle did was search and test solutions the community needed
by 1978 he had about 30 - which could be calssified into 2 types

type 1 could be microfrancied- ie a market could be designed for vilagers who learnt the solution so that the vilagers business would be positive income generating
type 2 had huge value eg teaching every mother how oral hydration could save her infsants life but needed some organisation to fund this

it shouldnt be a suprise that the first type 1 microfranchses were agricultural- fortunatle the green revolutoion linked by crop scientists lile bor;laug was happening- brac coukd work out a way fro vailage mothers to ;produce several times more rice than before
- ruice is a great staple but kit has no votamins - co children needed veggies to be grown as well as rise- fazle abed discovered that less than 10% of the seeds beingh distribiuted to vilagers were working - so brac wlorked out how to correct that and make vegetable farming incvome generating for village housewives

the error academics make is committed every time they describe bracs main purpose as microlending - it wasnt- it was simple that savings and loans were what the vollage mothers needed to implement any of the type 1 solutions

overall brac reinvented the whole developing economics model as well as how international aid is done

we have colected papers by sir fgazle or the main entrepreneur describing how solutions were innovated over 46 years including 25 pre-digital   9* Sir Fazle Abed
