Dear readers, a while ago I wrote a post on the MaFI-festo, a discussion paper that makes some suggestions on how to make development more effective (Boosting development effectiveness: what would need to change?). The basic assumption of the paper is that if we facilitate the market systems to change from within rather than through a number of direct and distorting interventions, we have better and more sustainable results.
The challenge to unleash the power of markets to end poverty goes on. The MaFI-festo now entered the MIX, the annual Harvard Business Review/McKinsey M-Prize for Management Innovation.
We need your help to push the MaFI-festo up the ranks of this competition!
