our selections of good bankers : sir fazle abed , muhmmad yunus (below), jack ma, the quadir brothres, and hopefully everyone who links in girlsbeltroad new deve banking may be biassed by the
84th birthday pesent to Norman Macrae (media's poverty alleviation storyteller)

someone gave norman macrae an advance copy of mushmmmad yunus' social busainess... it told the story of bangladesh's miraculius dvelopment of the 8th largest population by the world's poorest vilage girls

4 months later norman's family had sampled 1050 copies of this book - mainly to studnets but also to a few people who had always ebjoyed norman's work eg the then american head of Japan's JICA, and here was yunus being questioned by a 9 year old new yorker from a crowd of over a thousand on which banks had a future months before americabn bad banking was set to trap millennial youth in a decade of lost sustainability jobs oportunties

as you can see yunus is a great storyteller- like the economist style rule he siplifies and then exagerrates, not the other way round which is the fatal disease of all bad media; in trems of models yunus explained how bangladesh had mapped bottom-up human developmebt by turining most aid into income generating social businebsses and wjere eg secondary scholarships for 12 yera olds gifting not hi-trust loans are appropriate, the process of give dorectly (often known by the coimbersome name of conditional cash transfer); this ensures a donation goes to a specified individual and dor use in aan agrred way - as scholarship for secondary child does
