well delighted to be here
i'll talk about some of the things that i've been doing and i
how i got pushed interrupt yeah that that need planning to what
and one of the things that i did in the beginning
jump into
then make money exchange report people
that's the funniest part of my work i do things which i don't know anything about
and i didn't know anything about how to lend money or how does it go about
and i got into it and continued on that and now something else i don't have nothing to do with sports
and now i'm kind of the sports or talk to i was a while at a at a crazy world formation
anyway i'm just i'm trying to tell you how we got happen like that that not knowing something but
uh got involved with it not only got involved with that raising some um very big questions
about the way the world works on uh the way it should work
and i was talking about the creating a world of three zeros
zero poverty zero and one one zero net carbon emissions
so why why say that what does it come from that set briefly i will try to uh go over it
when i was
doing that it's a it's a kind of circumstances which person into what lending money
to what women in the village next door to the diversity campus where stitching
and that that to grow and grow and create a bank out colleague i mean bank or village back
and the work that we do became known as micro credit or micro finance
and then it became worldwide
and then i was raising the question
and insisting at the same time
that credit should be available to every human being and saying could it is a kind of a financial oxygen to people
if you don't have oxygen or we can be
and collapse would become dysfunctional
i said that's what happens to people if you don't get the financial losses
and people can remain active the collapse the become dysfunctional
and we call them for people as it is therefore is not therefore they're as good as any other
human being simply that financial oxygen is missing to them the moment you connect with the financial losses
the become alive they active productive creative and just like everybody else but the four well
if you go down to look at the financial sector you see then car
half the population of the world is not connected with that financial losses yeah so the root cause of poverty
at one point i was insisting by saying credit should be accepted as a human that
so that we don't go into big battle about how who should do and how to do we can all this stuff can it be done
it has to be done and the domain bank the bank that we created kind approved
it could be done as this multi it financially sound way as anybody else
while doing that's saying this service to provide to the people
makes sense to people and they transform their life
and that's what happened in bangladesh we have one nine million borrowers in coming
back along that many other organisations now mostly women ninety seven percent women
so even though they were women in the village illiterate women take money and transform the alive
and being them out of the poverty level and bangladesh's itchy the millennium development goal
to reduce poverty by half by two dozen fifty that was the millennium development go
not only did she did it eighteen bit by two dozen thirteen of joe
so when half years before the un declared date december two doesn't it
so it can be done and now we don't come up
concluding the program continuing their focus and it seemed
that is the g. for sustainable development goal
reduce it reducing poverty to zero by twenty thirty
so what we're saying that yes we can do that and we can do it before printed that is possible
so that's where the problem zero poverty issue comes
and as you see look at people wide group will be imported mention that the
is because of financial loves it is not available in a broader sense
what i've been saying already is not created by the poor people
poverty is created by the system that we built around us that's what the root cause of poverty
once we
the design the system take the see the poverty in the system
this whole reason way body should be pork
now what is it may take the seed of the poverty from this just what is the system anyway
we talk about
of course the system that we all follow in every bit we're all thinking of work our job
the capitalist system
capri system is based
on misinterpretation of human being that's the kind of focus that day to
draw attention to that's what the media zeroes is all about
it looks at human being
and interpret it improperly don't way
it you you you didn't topics human being is someone who's driven by self interest
there's only been people are driven by itself and says that that's absolutely don't care
that means human beings that all selfish base
only thing they work for is for personal interest selfish interest
is it true human being that we see everywhere
it's not about hundred to send selfishness it's about selfishness and self distance
there are two aspects of human being at least
but the economic system the capitalist system doesn't allow that self service part to play
in the camps this it is you want to be self this goal become um surface the women
is it that's fine i'm not no objection would but why can't i use myself less this in the business world
so that's a question that i had it easy
and facing because i already done such a thing to get companies to solve
people's problems rather than make money for our cells or any owners
and that's what the domain banking what i didn't pay the guy mean band to make money for myself
i can get going back to solve the problem of the word people so that they can activate themselves they can do things and get on
i could s. c. d.'s of those companies
companies which work to solve a specific problem with no intention of making personal money out of it
so i kind of move david from the basic interpretation of
human being in the capitalist system bodily new interpreters
new interpretation that human being can be selfless n. even p. itself as presence
selfless business is something that you do i would object evokes all been problem that you see in front of you
having no intention of making personal benefit out but personal profit out of it is a company is a business
but business to solve problems and line the conventional business kept the
one that uh describe to the cup to this theory
with the business is to make money maximise nation a profit that's what you learn the lesson number one about economics
you have to maximise your profit if you look at other people's problems that's
not your problem you focus on making money i said that's not true
but there's reason but the fact that they had done that the world
became selfish because we're supposed to be selfish and we believe
in it would become selfish not only selfish we became really we don't want to look at anybody else's problems i said what
kept the system is done us put on a glass so that all of us
a glass with a dollar sign we see the world without assign nothing else
it's it's not it's that's not the fair thing to interpret human being
all i'm saying in the state of having class at the dollar sign why can't we have bifocals glasses
we'll have that signs the dollar sign but we have also either part of the glass with with a dollar sign we see the whole world
so you choose which one you want to do you want to do the business to make money go ahead
what if you want to do business to solve problems of the well do it in a business way
so what does this is gonna be done so the placing a single
dollar sign glasses with a bi focal that's as transforms everything
everything we do behind it we have the dollar sign
so now we bring the other side we see the t. v. i have the capacity to make changes in the world
so that's a business that we talk about the source of assistance and we
continue to do that we have a business of salt water problem
we have created already solar energy in replacing forces whether or not you as a source of this
is not to make money but to bring bring solar energy in the villages about that age
i have here we can design beautiful health care programs to bring help get to people who have never been to
approach that healthier now you can do that everything that you see of all
the things porting issue you could design things how to adjust the politician
these issues i days and no real in the view all of it i was
invited by i i. o. c. that's what i say stores can also become
so so the audience that it doesn't have to the main business oriented to make money for the big companies and so on
we do that we will not use by forgot you can do that at the same time it could be done in a social way
we talk about how to design the of all them big if
with a sore salary annotation details of everything how to make it all
the way as i was in members became interested in our
work we want to make sure that the that involve so we
created out of that relationship between i received an hour work
we created a sport sports hell of social business how to
encourage young people to come with ideas and in that
so this is the new paint that the sports affected big power
that power can be used for changing the well like for example i was saying that if you're having
your some a lot of them but why don't we have a message for the of them big
no more done in the world
and we can think of that that we as young people want to get away from
the off diagonal forms in the schools in these sports whatever we shall network
and then we bring social business idea how to rehabilitate the jacket
big already put them into nice environment so that they become
normal people so you put the source of business aspect to find the solutions whatever problem you talk about
you put the social does the solutions that's what they become invested in and we'll begin
to see us to control i'm cool but we will get interested in that
any don't becomes a very important role to play in making these three zero seven
that's a power because this young generation that you are the tremendous part
i keep telling began people that you are the most powerful generation that orwell invented history of the world
because we have the technology that technology makes you as powerful as
against them the genie of the other things that you energy
you can do anything you want simply of the figure out yes i have the power and then answer the question
what news and make up this power unless you know what clues you want to make this part would be
wasted away so that's my out the young people figured out what use you want to make that
use of the part that you have
and at the same time maybe mine technology there's a little warning with the technology
that i gave all the time and i want to share with that
technology is a blessing
it can do many things with cannot be done before the technology is also
a class it can destroy life so it's not to all this
so we have to be careful what technology we're talking about are we talking about technology is a blessing
to shore begins all things he a new world for us what technology to kill each other
or technology
unknowingly opening the door which will destroy us
so this is what what have to be careful recently we hear about the artificial intelligence this to give an example
is it a blessing
or is it a curse
we have to figure that out
everybody still this is exciting artificial intelligence is coming so we can do things which could never done before
we could done effect you would use template ten thousand people now with five people we can on the same
the same effect the same production wonderful our cost of production goes down our profit margin goes up
fantastic is it good or is it that should technology make
people who are already employed make the man in black
what is the limit how far it will go that is you don't use
fifty percent of the people
taking out a bit and lyman
and it is that the people taking out of and what what what is the limit and
what we do with the people who are an implied that talk about universal basic income
get the money
i said well sounds good universal basic income
but i have to me it's just extension of the welfare system you're already people on welfare which is wrong
people that creative people energetic but we kind of brought the marked into
but this is the welfare is good but not as a present
well if it should be kind of common got we should be helping people to get out
of was that as soon as possible we don't do that we're busy putting the main
and love them up in the second generation third generation of people that want that
so is this what we have to do now the people who are already implied
i said to where is the limit of this technology of artificial intelligence where
we draw the line should there be a kind of a social guidelines
for the whole world this is kind of this is the kind of technology we can develop this is the technology we cannot develop
what would be the guideline as if if united nations are looking for a guideline i was
the guy then number one no technology should be developed which is harmful to people
this is too much to ask
back then but to no technology should be developed which is harmful to the planet
does it make sense if it makes sense that's set up to have a guideline now
we're told is officially into liz's uh not only will take a way out jobs
artificial intelligence is growing so fast
soon it will become as intelligent as human being
and once we've each day or the next step artificial intelligence will become more intelligent than a human being
imagine a world where artificial intelligence more intelligent than human being
what kind of attitude but i division and the reasons would have looking at us as a human being
human being has a limit it to its intelligence because we're biological a limited
person we cannot go one expanding out into it but they can our visions intelligence is the
limit is intelligence so then look at us as if we're approaches on this planet
should be the first class citizen of this world or should be cockroaches of this planet
that's issue that we have the result because it's moving too fast so
those are the issues we have to address technology is very important
i needed we all needed to change the wallpaper well we we can have everybody sharing wealth
the as the main thing that is happening to the world with the capitalist system
all the wealth of the world is getting concentrate in a few hands
like now only people in the world has more wealth than the bottom fifty percent of
the people tomorrow they'll be less than eight people will have more love than the
bottom fifty percent of the people so all the what is the
one percent of the population of the well bob more well
more than ninety nine percent of the wealth of the world is just the well that we want to be it was for real proud about
now we want to get a system which rewards the system where where could be shared with everybody
that's what the source of business come that's what our involvement as individual
comes we're not just a little problems in some kind of
uh let me shave that to the hat to fit into ourselves we're human being big haiti we
