TedxDar 2010, Ctd

Over at the Mikocheni Report, Elsie comments on Jamie Yang’s presentation. To wit:

What Jamie does is deal with energy issues, bringing light to the poor. Everything costs more when you are poor- more money, more effort, more strategizing, more diverse little income streams, more ingenuity and opportunism. Jamie works in Social Investment, the strange no-man’s land between NGO funding (aka ‘free money that make you lazy’) and venture capital (Evil Capitalism). I can’t say that I understand how it works, exactly, but I will always applaud people who put their thinking caps on to work in poverty alleviation.
