Chapter 2 THE FAILURE OF DEVELOPMENT
Development has failed ... compared to what was possible, the achievements are pathetic. There are many reasons for failure ... none of them acceptable. It is time to make changes. It is time to do things differently so that there is sustainable progress. It is time for a paradigm shift. These are important issues ... this book is a starting point.

Chapter 3. THERE ARE WAYS FORWARD
There are ways forward ... not one, but many. A single silver bullet is not the right approach ... rather there needs to be a use of resources that gets the most value for the society as possible. The way forward has several main components: more meaningful development data and metrics, a focus on community scale initiatives

Chapter 6. INSTITUTIONAL CAPACITY - ENABLING ENVIRONMENT
What is institutional capacity ... the enabling environment? It is a lot more than just governance and government, the law and regulation? It is also the infrastructure and the social services like health and education, and the financial services. Institutional capacity may be a major constraint on the socio-economic progress of the community. What is the underlying productivity of the community. If the community is surplus producing it can go forward and improve its quality of life ... otherwise it cannot. The concept is simple ... and explains the endemic economic and development failure that is pervasive on the planet.

Turning Development Upside Down
Three events make me feel the need to memorialize some of what I had learned during my multiple consulting assignments with the official development assistance (ODA) community over about a quarter of a century. (1) I was in Ghana in West Africa at the turn of the Millennium and made a short trip to Liberia in connection with some thinking about community development. This did not turn out well and Charles Taylor had his army terrorize me and I fled. (2) Three months later I was back in Ghana, again working to think through how better to progress community development, and one of the major financial players in the country had me arrested and jailed. After about 2 weeks I was released, but the experience was thought provol=king. (3) The third event was 9/11 which was a very dramatic wake up call ... but probably ended up causing way more damage and disruption for everyone in the world than it should have.
I am not a writer. Though I am a pretty good analyst, I am not a good story teller and therefore not a very good writer. I have been quite effective at telling a bit of a story to enable decision making in a management setting, but that is very different from writing a book. This manuscript has been a work in progress for almost 20 years ... and still does not feel finished.
