Against the advice of conventional banks & the government; Dr. Muhammad Yunus business model is being applied in 58 countries

Leave a comment

Against the advice of conventional banks and the government, Dr. Muhammad Yunus implemented the concept of ‘micro-loans’, and formed Grameen Bank, meaning ‘Village Bank’ founded on principles of trust and solidarity upon realizing that there must be something terribly wrong with the economics he was teaching as a professor of economics after conducting a field trip to a poor village with his students.

In Bangladesh today, Grameen has 2,564 branches, with 19,800 staff serving 8.29 million borrowers in 81,367 villages. Of the borrowers, 97% are women and over 97% of the loans are paid back, a recovery rate higher than any other banking system.Grameen methods are applied in projects in 58 countries, including the US, Canada, France, The Netherlands and Norway.

Leave a comment

The United Nations Foundation present the second annual Social Good Summit. Held during UN week, the Summit is where big ideas meet new media to create innovative solutions.

The Summit unites a dynamic community of global leaders to discuss a big idea: the power of innovative thinking and technology to solve our greatest challenges.

The most innovative technologists, influential minds and passionate activists came together last week with one shared goal: to unlock the potential of new media and technology to make the world a better place.

Alec Ross serves as senior advisor for innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, where he is tasked with maximizing the potential of technology and innovation in service of America’s diplomatic goals and stewarding Secretary of State Clinton’s 21st Century Statecraft agenda. Alec Ross is being interviewed in the 2 minute video below after speaking at the Social Good Summit.

You’ll hear how you can have more influence than elites wearing $3,000 suits.

Previously, Ross served as the convener for Obama for America’s Technology, Media & Telecommunications Policy Committee and served on the Obama-Biden Presidential Transition Team.

In 2000, he and three colleagues co-founded the nonprofit organization One Economy and grew it in to the world’s largest digital divide organization, with programs on four continents. He was named the 2010 Middle East/North Africa Technology Person of the Year, cited by the Huffington Post as one of “10 Game Changers in Politics,” named a “game changer” as one of Politico’s “50 Politicos to watch” in 2010, and named one of 40 under 40 leaders in international development. Ross started his career as a sixth grade teacher through Teach for America in inner-city Baltimore where he lives with his wife Felicity and their three young children.

A Whole New Mind “Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future

Leave a comment

A Paradigm Shift requires using your strengths and developing new skills to open up to new perceptions with confidence to make the leap into new world realities in order to thrive and while finding solutions to problems.

I saw Daniel H. Pink in person several years at ago as the keynote speaker at a business function when his first book was released Free Agent Nation:  The Future of Working for Yourself.   A Whole New Mind Why Right-Brainers will Rule the Future is Pink’s second book and expands and builds on the concepts in Free Agent Nation.

To quote Tom Peters author of IN Search of Excellence.  “This book is a miracle.  Completely original and profound”.

In the video; you’ll meet Daniel Pink and find out how he become a best seller author and has other thought leaders like Tom Peters sings his praises regarding Pink’s research and thesis of “Why Right-Brainers will Rule the Future”.  A Whole New Mind – Video

The Goldsmith’s Tale “A Brief & Broadly Allegorical History of Banking”

Leave a comment

Which political party do you think can “Fix” the economy?  Is the answer the Republicans, Democrats, Green Party, Tea Party, Libertarian Party or the Nazi Party?  Sorry the answer is not any of the above parties.

The correct answer is the party called YOU, INC.
It’s time us to stop blaming Congress (even though their despicable behavior warrants it).
>
We must realize that the United States as only one country out of 196 countries.  Greece, Italy, Germany, France, and other countries in the so called “developed world” are having their own financial challenges and we are all linked to one another. What happens in one country affects everyone else.

How the world economy has gotten into this quandary is captured beautifully in the video below titled The Goldsmith’s Tale:  “A Brief & Broadly Allegorical History of Banking”.

Shift Happens! – Are you ready?

Leave a comment

Think of a Paradigm Shift as a change from one way of thinking to another. It’s a revolution, a transformation, a sort of metamorphosis. It just does not happen, but rather it is driven by agents of change.

Reality is distorted by our past perceptions. (see two illustrations below).  View the video link below.  It will literally “ASTOUND”you.

Shift Happens!
