  • The ability to discuss the issues with the poor and involve them in the planning
  • Sustainable and renewable electric power sources for the poorest and most remote villages
  • Affordable high-speed village Internet connections
  • Microfinance for electricity and Internet
  • A complete rethinking of educational software and textbooks now that computers for children are becoming affordable
  • A new understanding of the economics of poverty and prosperity
  • A new set of fundamental human rights, including information, health care, and access to markets
