Quoting Daydreamer:



Has it occurred to you that you attacked other TC users for not posting just 2 hours after starting the thread?



OOps..now who cannot tell a.m. from p.m.?

My mistake, sorry, I've noticed you posted the other one at 1.30 p.m not a.m so that makes it 14 hours (My students should be happy I don't teach maths or geography). The other reasons are still valid, though.

Regards,
shameful DDR

I want to congratulate Muhammad Yunus for his valuable works about women. good stuff...

He's fully deserved that price..



Not to take anything away from Mr. Yunus, I don't have any respect for the Nobel Prize Committee. Gandhi was nominated five times and never received it. Also, worth mentioning the Grameen Bank does receive a profit off of money that is loaned. I don't believe micro-finance is necessarily going to increase the supply-side of the equation in the short term. Not only is not all the money invested recovered, at least some of the money ends up merely supporting consumption. This is not a traditional "let us provide money so people will invest in businesses and we will get it all back" sort of deal.

But I also believe that different places call for different solutions. For its locale, considering for the third year in a row, Bangladesh is THE most corrupt nation on Earth, according to Transparency International. Its remarkable that in such a corrupt society Mohammad Yunus is able to stay clean. I applaud him.

Thanks for your time Teas, much appreciated.

It's a Travesty that Ghandi didn't get the award especially when this award, given to figures eg Kissinger attracted some controversy. I've actually got a piece on Ghandi , which I dug up the otherday when I read Libraladyis post about the possible statue in Leicester. I never got round to posting it, but I will .

Well nothing in this world is perfect Teas, although there's nothing wrong in aiming for something good. I guess Rome wasn't built in a day and progress has to start somewhere, however small it seems as first. Mistakes may be made along the way, but hopefully, lessons are learned. From little acorns . . .
