Totally pumped and loving capitalism

ideaExchange | opportunity for African farmers

Some years ago in Zambia Stuart Taylor realized business might not always be the enemy of poor people in poor countries. But in the world of international development, that kind of thinking is close to heresy. Stu’s insight and research eventually led him to his current position as Executive Director of International Development Enterprises Canada‚ a Winnipeg-based non-profit that raises the incomes of families living on a dollar a day through design of extremely low-cost technologies and development of markets that work for low-income customers and producers.

In this compelling edition of ideaExchange, Stu explains what happened to him on his road to Emmaus and what that journey looks like today. The presentation is followed by a lively discussion period.
