This is from a Facebook thread:
Kathryn Polak shared a memory.One of the things I learned as a small child was that trees grew from the roots up ... not top down. But in my formal education (enginering, economics and accountancy) and in my corporate management experience I learned that most of modern management was top-down. When I got to do consulting work for the World Bank and the United Nations I also learned that international development and humanitarian assistance was also run using 'top down' protocols. There were however, a lot of initiatives like those of Paul Polak and IDE that embraced a bottom up approach and these were successful but not at a sufficient scale to get the attention of world leaders and to change the paradigm. It is late ... but not too late ... and I am still optimistic that common sense and reality will prevail!
