-in the 2010s more data than humans had ever seen before was created by satellites and mobile devices; moreover 10 dollar computer chips had caught up with the number crunching ability of human brains- and unlike us 7.5 billion people could be cloned to operate specific systems in real time- eg soon driving and policing of cars can be done by the artificials but this begs a question what priority help do 7.5 billion people need? why over 15 years were autnonomous cars priortitised over ending viruses/ the answer is people at the top of the biggest organisations do not see natures challenges to us beings at ground level; the challenge of how to prioritise human ai was popular in the economist of the 1970s partly becuase a journalist had been privilieged to be one of the last people to interview von neumann whose legacy has been 60 years of ai labs started up with twins in 1960 facintg the atlantic out of bostons mit and facing the pacific out of stanford- exercise fingd a globe and point to a place where one thousandth of humans mediates a bigger diversity of demands for humanising tech than anywhere else? did you choose singapore: a island at the apex of the 2 coastlines that 70% of humans being asian depend most on for world trade shipping -while you should certainly choose anywhere on the globe you like to do this survey its extraordinary what can be learnt from singaporeans if 2021 is to be the most exciting and loving year after the hopelessyear of covid 2020 ...

Guide to Preferential Option Poor Models -more at KIMuniversity.com 
in this video Clinton  invites you to explore the idea that bangladesh built its nation- and a revolutionary paradigm for development economics - around preferential option poor models.


BRAC now the world's largest NGO started up as a bottom-up disaster relief agency. Infrastructure around Sir Fazle Abed was all that was left standing after a local cyclone killed up to half a million people. Global relief agencies therefore partnered his network . When the immediate relief was over, Abed was reading Paulo Freire and designed every learning network of BRAC around pedagogy of the oppressed; the simplest primary education system being the village montessori design which BRAC was to go on to build 40000 of across rural Bangladesh.By 1980 BRAC was ready to POP the greatest intervention in live saving health care -over one quarter of infants had been dying of diarrhea. The cure Oral rehydration -a mix of boiled ware, salt and sugar in exact proportions- costs next top nothing to make but you need every networking skill of living and learn with the poorest top scale such a knowledge transfer across 50+ million rural and mainly illiterate family members

 Similarly muhammad yunus demanded Listen with Mother of Microcreditwith the poorest as from 1983 he started sending out hundreds of students to go be barefoot bankers and to weekly practice 16 decisions of grameen cultures with 60 circles of 60 village mothers e



So it was that the east's poorest muslim nation spent quarter of a century from 1972 linking the word's number 1 POP partnering networks around every sort of life-shaping service needed to sustain the poorest. A decade later anthroplogy student Paul Farmer, who had studied the catholic  origins of POP in south and central america, was visiting the West's poorest nation Haiti. What could he do to most serve the poorest in haiti? He decided on becoming a doctor designing Preferential Option for poorest. He commuted between Haiti and Boston encouraging more and more of his peer medical friends to do likewise. Hugely energised POP medics attract each other. Soon Farmer was to find Jim Kim to be as all in as he was.

Arguably the greatest new millennium wonder evolved from 1996- pop 2.1 started up as Bangladesh which was funded by George Soros.  Soros was interested in exploring all greatest open society interventions. He had already discovered the Farmer-Kim duo and had observed Pope John Paul 2 give his compatriot Poles the courage to peacefully break free from Russia's top-down and closed society. Soros was the firt major funder not to be interested in separate projects short term wins, but even he may be pleasantly surprised by the coming meta-connectivity opportunities

Thanks to Bangladesh village womens hi-trust social networks, it became  the benchmark nation to massively explore mobile empowerment for the poorest. It turned out that many of the missing infrastructure grids that the industrial age had trapped the rural poor in could now be leapfrogged. 

Mobile (satellite) phones are cheaper to install nationwide if you dont have a wired up system. Solar is cheaper to deliver if you are off traditional electricity grids. Mobile cashless except for last mile banking is more economical than distributing cash everywhere. Moreover trusted local merchants are far more relevant to rural economy than ATMs. In many many professional services mobile apps and virtual knowhow sharing blended with last mile real training empower hi-trust village networks (such as mothers) to race to end poverty and do this in sustainable ways. Fortunately POP banks are so busy making loans which the poorest use for livelihood training, that their financial savings and loans are ring fenced from any global capital madness like that which Wall Street wasted  2000 to 2015 on.
