7) 3 July 2001 : How they grew rich: Contrary to what many believe, the economic lives of our
ancestors is a story of almost unrelieved wretchedness.
Everywhere, a small number lived humanely while the great
majority lived in abysmal squalor. We forget their misery,
in part, by the grace of literature, poetry, and legend,
which celebrate those who lived well and forget those who
lived in the silence of poverty.
The eras of misery have been mythologised and are
remembered as golden ages of pastoral simplicity. They were
not. In truth, survival was the only order of business.
8) HBS Working Knowledge: Leadership, Strategy & Competition: Why Leaders Need Great Books: "Here's this young guy," says Badaracco of Jerry in the
story. "He's smart. He's ambitious. Like the people he's
selling insurance to, he's starting out with nothing in
life. He wants to make something of himself; and ultimately
he does. But he's got to deal very early in his career with
something he thinks is wrong.
"The struggle is partly with his own idealism versus the
circumstances in which he's found himself. And it's partly
against the policies of a large organization."
9) HBS Working Knowledge: Leadership, Strategy & Competition: Harold Bloom On What Bill Gates Should Be Reading This Summer: Every individual—regardless of profession—needs to stretch

12) Encompass Magazine, Charting a Sustainable Course - February / March 2001: Jim : "What an exciting concept! I would love to see this
happen everywhere. Cars are the stinking dinosaur of the
20th century. Leaving the airport yesterday, I remember
thinking to myself, "there's no way you pry the cars away
from these people". And you couldn't take my car away from
me right now. Life totally sucks down here without a car.
The urbanized world will have to be redesigned to
accomodate a car-free lifestyle but I think it would be
more than worth it. I think it's critical for the future
of our planet's environment, the environment our children
and grand-children will have to breathe and play in."

government of India are establishing a one-year exploratory
project to create the Media Laboratory Asia (MLA), which is
conceived as an independent, non-profit organization.
The Indian government has committed $12 million toward this

for MIT's participation. Seed funding will be provided by
the government of India, and the remaining funds will be
raised by MLA from private-sector and other non-
governmental sources. Findings at the end of the program's
first year will form the framework for making decisions
concerning a 10-year MLA project and will determine the
role that MIT would play in its development.
