The "Grand Micro Challenges©" or "Micro Grand Challenges©" to be announced by Carbon Manna Unlimited


Smashing the pumpkins of microfinance

"All progress depends on the unreasonable man" -- or woman

The student surpasses the master, who gives way graciously

The Gates Foundation and other non-profits have issued Grand Challenges for global healthcare or space travel or mathematics, but where are the "Grand Micro Challenges©" or "Micro Grand Challenges©" that will generate New Markets-based Micro Ideas to economically liberate "The Next Billion"?

Where are these novel paradigms ?

The poverty of global imagination traps the "Bottom of the Pyramid" in "a cruel and malignant Fate" that no NGO nor charity nor government agency has ever been able to alter. The Deep Debt Rut from Dhaka shackles Womankind & Mankind in usury and existential penury -- and sycophantic accolades for simplistic ideas continue in the face of the conceptual progress manifested on this digital record of Micro Progress.

Can you too shatter the micro stereotypes and "Think Different" ?

History will judge us, not mere micro women or micro men.

Globally & warmly yours, David Palella
