4. Cell phone, Radio, Television, and the whole Information and Communication Technology is the fastest to reach at the grass root level. Then, why the idea of Millennium Development Goals (MDG) did not reach at the grass root level around the world. Where exactly UNO and its organizations like WB...are failing to reach grass root level? I've been to many MBA schools and those even MBA students do not know what are MDG, leave others (including governments who do not take MDG seriously) aside, hence, this obvious question. Hope the question is taken positively and UNO and WB will try to find out an innovative solution on this, to make MDG happen.

Is there a universal language for innovation? What defines systems change? Does disruption on crowds matter for scale?
