Our interconnected world. . .thinking about consequences. . .valuing the intelligence of the poor

Jacqueline Novogratz works on global poverty.

What she says about our basic interconnectedness as humans needs to be heard.

How she views the capacity and the strength of poor people is extremely instructive.

The struggle against poverty is the same all over the world. The economics differ in terms of scale and net value, but the essential principles Novogratz delineates relative to consequences and how to approach the challenges sound and feel familiar.

Engagement and self-sufficiency are inviolate values in the battle we all share. . .way beyond charity.

Worth your time to listen.

Reactions will be useful.
