Mere transfer of approaches and processes from successful enterprises to poverty eradication will not work, and could set back efforts too
True talk ! What i woould like to know is; is there a definite suggestion or approach we can take to deal with this problem of poverty? I am from Africa, where unless you have a heart of stone, you will be moved to tears everyday seeing others suffer around you. even the Presidents can not deny seeing people suffer. They drive on bad roads, they watch televisions. How do we apply this "hybrid approach" to help our people?

Shashi Tharoor: Why nations should pursue soft power
Am appalled at the statements of you and your fellow Indians. Would you have preferred to remain in your past? India has made giant strides whether you or anyone else in any other part of the world likes it. Success is a journey not a destination. It is going to be the job of everyone to build the model society, the government only creates the leadership. So what India TVs are not in the market but the world accepts your movies more than Chinese movies. Your win some and you lose some.
