An idea worth spreading
I would like to spread the idea of efficient and sustainable solutions in 3 core areas initially as they affect 70 % of the global economy. 1) Banking and Finance 2) Energy and Environment 3) Education and Livelyhood. I believe that there is enough in the world to support a population of 10 billion comfortably, if we re-orient our current priorities.1) Recapitalization of Banks andmaking them bigger makes them inefficient. Both Capital efficiency and ROI drops and risk increases because banks get into unrelated areas like commodities and metals to bring in profits. The correct way would be to shrink banks and make them leaner,efficient and sustainable 2) Energy and environment must let go of Kyoto and carbon trading concept and invest directly in only 3 core areas a) Wind energy b) solar energy c) rainforest plantation to bring best returns.3) In Education and Livelyhood the focus must on development of skill for livelyhood which is different in US, India & Congo
I'm passionate about
Efficiency & sustainabilty. Global problems can be solved by efficient & sustainable resource utilisation. Optimum must replace maximum in free market economics
Talk to me about
I would like to talk of 1) Smart Banks 2) Smart Energy 3) Smart Education To start with the concept of Smart Banks instead of Big Banks as global finance is in deep trouble & needs transperancy.
