How to end the extreme poverty: the fastest, most effective, and most unorthodox way
This article is primarily for ending the extreme poverty and is a sequel to To End The Poverty article here. If you haven’t read it, please read To End the Poverty.
The extreme poverty is normally defined for those who earn less than $1.25 per day or $2 per day. This meets the bare minimum to survive, typically for those in the poorest 30-40-50 countries.
The plans are more intricate and comprehensive, but for now, let’s start with this.
There are various scenarios to end the extreme poverty in the world, but here I will use the estimation of Jeffrey Sachs as he has been one of the leaders to initiate the global movement to make it happen. His estimation has been $40-60 Billions of Dollars per year. More conservative estimations go for $100-200 to even $600 Billions per year (very conservative estimation) to end it.
For now, I will focus on ending the extreme poverty using Jeff Sach’s estimation and the mostly on the monetary approaches instead of dealing with the various other factors such as political corruptions, tax issues, legal mayhems, volatility of the regions for the countries in general.
Question: So how will USL be able to make this happen? (much faster, effective, and extremely in an unorthodox way)
Rough blueprints as to how this can be done is given in the following links, but let me give you a quick snapshot.
ANS: Originally, USL was created to make average students learn math/science 10-20 times faster, meaning to make average students learn 12 year math in less than in 1 year with the equal or better proficiency than those who take the regular 12 years of math classes and similarly for physical sciences, but I have faced too much of skepticism and resistance. So, USL Go Global will be scaled down initially significantly just to advance about 1 year of math up to the first 9-10 years, meaning averege students can skip 1 year instead of 10+ years of math, partially to minimize unnecessary conflicts and partially to boost up the global education more or less in manageable levels because otherwise the gaps between the rich and the poor countries can become even more atrocious than before, which I will never allow to happen.
One of the key ingredients is the super-speed and effectiveness of USL. Converting over 90% of saving time in math/science learning in education with the equal or better proficiency of mastering them than before – for any participating country – worths trillions of dollars in terms of the human capital because the value of time and efficiency is the ultimate human capital. The huge gains in human capital will boost the economy of the countries that embrace USL approaches. The surplus gained from this is partially redistributed, in hundreds of billions of dollars, to end the extreme poverty around the globe initially. Later, they will be easily increased more after seeing the initial success.
For the sake of simplicity, let’s suppose that the U.S. participates in boosting the U.S. national math up to 15 year old level (K1-9 or 10) – forgetting about the science or EU or all the other developed countries for now – and USL Go Global can easily boost the national average of math, advancing it say about 1 year, which is about the math level of Canada’s. The human capital gains for this – as it will contribute to the U.S. GDP – is roughly over $1 Trillions annually from that point on. This is what I mean by the human capital. The U.S. has miserably failed in this regard for over 15 years at least, for instance when G.W. Bush tried to do in late 90s, and there is much nope to overcome the current level of math/science in the U.S much. USL can, however, make the U.S.’s human capital advance within a year and beyond.
USL was created so that the 20-30% of the surplus of $billion(s) or $trillions(s) gains, as I call it URF (USL Redistribution Fund), which otherwise would not have been possible, is to be redistributed to the global causes that actually help the mankind. So, for the U.S. example aforementioned, the U.S. surplus GDP profits, say $1 Trillions can give out $200-$300 Billions to the causes that USL Go Global provides in return. One of them is to end the extreme poverty. Out of URF sum, about $50-60 Billions can be used for ending the extreme poverty, particularly in the poorest countries. Although this won’t completely eliminate the extreme poverty, at least economically, this will be able to end it if you use the Jeffrey Sach’s estimation.
The principal USL plans for the world: provides the realistic and effective solutions that make everyone happy by the following strategies:
- STEP 1-1: the trademark record-speed capability of USL (which massively boosts the learning process of STEM subjects in the participating countries) will be the trigger.
- STEP 1-2:To boost the human capitals of the participating countries,
- STEP 2: this will be forward boosting the GDPs of the countries (by Trillions of Dollars) that collaborate with USL programs
- STEP 3: the GDP surplus of the USL-participating countries operate under the constraints that the participating governments should spend 20-30% of the their surplus gains of GDPs for the critical causes that the mankind currently faces (Click Here).
The global causes that USL Go Global will focus primarily are:
- to help end the extreme poverty countries and build their education infrastructure beyond what UN can handle,
- push the resource-based and sustainable science/technology/economy that are simultaneously implemented with the minimal bureacratic bottlenecks, collaborating various new global organizations with the minimum bureaucracies.
- to help the poor and underprivileged communities in the participating countries accordingly,
- to push the reliefs of the massive student loan debts which burden most of the industrialized countries.
- to help narrow the gender gaps (especially by narrowing the math/science gender gaps)
