What the World Really Needs

I came across this blogpost on HBR and it really hit home.  We live in a world that has too much of what we don't need, and not enough of what we do need.  This applies not only to individuals but to the structures of society and the mindset in which we make critical decisions regarding international aid and development.  



WE NEED LESS:WE NEED MORE:

Imagine how different our world would be if we started to focus on what really matters.
