I would like to encourage my colleagues on this platform to take some time to review a very exciting event on December 20.  https://www.macfound.org/events/200/

 

The MacArthur Foundation will through its  100&Change competition, award a $100 million grant to fund a single proposal that promises real and measurable progress in solving a critical problem of our time.  This link previews the 4 finalist and their separate visions for using this money.  

 

Is this an idea which the WBG members should consider replicating in countries where the majority of the 'bottom billion' are currently residing?
