As you might know from an earlier post, I’ve been doing a course called Subsistence Marketplaces on Coursera. Now I’m by no means a model student of the course, but one thing I have learnt is the need to really understand subsistence marketplaces before delving into them. And that’s something that this post gets to the heart of – “Hip Gadgets for the Developing World Won’t Solve Global Poverty: Stop Making Them”. Word. That’s all.
