What Makes People Poor? – NYTimes.com

Excellent stuff!

But here's the thing:  if we have any real interest in developing strategies and technologies able to rescue impoverished people 'over there',  what would be wrong with identifying our own marginalized populations as de facto third world nations within, for example, Canada and  the USA.

What would be more interesting that structuring alternative second economies for these marginalized populations - in a sense, rebooting dysfunctional local populations with new operating systems featuring new local currencies and using social media and other technological resources allowing individuals to produce and exchange value outside of the global economy?

These example and resources would be immediately relevant to rescuing marginalized populations 'over there'.

The fact that such repairs have not been occurring begs further questions.
