Jacqueline Novogratz: A third way to think about aid e technology in the aid of farmers

The debate over foreign aid often pits those who mistrust “charity” against those who mistrust reliance on the markets. Jacqueline Novogratz proposes a middle way she calls patient capital, with promising examples of entrepreneurial innovation driving social change.

  1. @BookofHezekiah About your 1st point – there's no way the US can "shut down for repairs", your economy isn't sustentable, you buy most prime material from abroad. Also, what Novogratz says is that aid is not only charity, but also a great oportunity for revenue in the long run ("patient capital"). Maybe if the US was to use money for that, it would help put you house in order…

    I'm not judging, but the point of the talk is to expose aid as also a profitable investment.

  2. is anyone tired of people useing the word "change"? changechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechangechange geez use something diffrent…

  3. Jacqueline Novogratz is certainly a wonderful person who has dedicated most of her life to helping others. I do appreciate that TED has speakers like her, however, when TED claims to have "the world's leading thinkers" where are Noam Chomsky or Lew Rockwell or anyone from a non-establishment freedom oriented viewpoint? When is someone going to speak about debt based currency or the enslaving nature of the modern economic strucuture? You can't effect change by embracing the established order.

  4. Those imperialist militairy bases also mean that the country is under direct protection of the US. Thats why Poland wanted that missile shield in its country: Russia won't attack US directly But I do agree with you on your points.

  5. The point is I want to help people directly, rather than building a career and giving to charity, both types of help are essential of course.
    You are so right in the last sentence, there are no rules, that is the beauty of it.

  6. Obama "recognizes that there is no longer a single superpower"? How about closing imperialist military bases, starting to acknowledge free and fair elections, and stopping economic hitpeople and defense contractors from building business empires more powerful than some governments?

    THAT would just be the beginning of leaving a single-superpower world.

  7. Hmmm governance is more like management. Ensuring the organisations and bureaucracies are operating efficiently.

    Politics would be more like leadership.

    I think politicians get distracted by leading and they forget about their need to manage the state. Lets face it, the legislature is not all there is to government; there is a huge bureaucracy administering laws and spending budgets and so on. That machinery needs to work, otherwise, the legislature is a waste of time.

  8. In a lot of these really poor countries, children are part of the little capital they have, sometimes they are the only capital. They can be extra hands for those already with a livelihood. In eastern countries especially, children can also be rented out or sold. Without alternatives to these medieval & terrible ways, the poverty is perpetuated & the potential for terrorism has something to feed on.

  9. AFAIK, she wasn't advertising for her company, but instead promoting an idea she hoped would be adopted by similar ventures.

    Each company will have its own figure… and it's something to look into before donating money to any cause.

  10. "I don't think that I heard even once, an iteration of what THEY claim to have asked for."

    I'm curious if you actually listened to the whole talk. This was a major point the speaker made; Investing in entrepreneurs who live in these conditions, and have tried and tested various solutions, with enough insulation to give them an opportunity to adapt.

    Do you honestly think you're making a legitimate point, or are you just spewing this garbage on the first video you found?

  11. I'm not advocating the position that the most expensive and wasteful lifestyle is required of every person. All I'm saying is, if you're living in a place where agriculture is very close to being futile without irrigation and other technologies that aren't available or not affordable, and you can hardly support yourself, don't have 12 kids. It is not helping your situation.

  12. It's very wise for you to establish yourself first if you are planning on spreading generosity on a large scale. If you are not established, then when something happens to you, the generosity flow is going to you instead of originating with you.

  13. An idea has been bothering me for a while. If the choice comes down to working in an office for years, or going out there and volunteering to help, witch should I choose.

  14. If I might paraphrase the language of Craig Newmark (owner of Craiglist), governance is more important than politics. So, while you might debate things like condoms, AIDS and so on, these are not actually critical issues. Ministers have to get their bread and butter governance issues right (say, functioning courts, no corruption especially amongst police, meaningful property rights, consistent taxation, etc). Once there is governance, politicians can debate policy.

  15. What can you do with options? If a comment isn´t shown i click on the reply button to see it.

    I like the rating option, but it sucks if bad rated comments disapear, because i want to see how stupid people are!


  16. I don´t think so. This upperclass is allready theire nomadder if you go to south america or africa. What mircofinancing like this does is to level the ineuality. When there are less poor people, there are lesse people to do illegal shitty jobs. Being criminal is taking a risk, so you do become a criminal after you calculated those risks (even if they are based on wrong assumptions, like an afterlive and 72 virgins). Education and knowlege are theirfore also important as a anticriminal influence

  17. I'm afraid that providing some individuals with this type of aid, will allow the hegemonic rule of the warlords, outsourced corporations and other maffia-esque elements within the thirld world to proliferate. As one person, or some persons gain capital, start businesses, they will soon become the ruling class and be in complete watch-dog control of their employees and neighborhoods. That's to say nothing of the fund and its financiers itself.
