Mankind in deep Poverty


Poverty is the inability to have a long range view of the future. The intense focus on now, on survival, on making the next bill, the next meal, the next salary; the lack of time for taking in perspective to plan the future is what deep poverty looks like. In this regard our collective civilization is in a state of deep poverty although we lie to ourselves that we are rich using artificial criteria like money & GDP. The question to ask is this: is the wellbeing and happiness of mankind and the planet  better than it was 500 years ago?
We need impact thinkers to rise up to the challenge of creating a new paradigm for measuring human progress for the sake of the wellbeing of our planet and its inhabitants.
Adebayo Alonge made the memorable quote at the recent Techsauce Conference while speaking of using deepTech for deep impact
