Ending poverty begins with creating wealth.

How does a country move from simply making trade-based transactions that support the economy to making superior transactions that increase wealth exponentially?

Daniel Jean-Louis presents a well-researched and tested plan to move countries forward toward wealth. And wealth, he says, is the path to moving citizens and countries out of poverty.

Jean-Louis takes his Opportunity-Based Economic Development plan (OBED), outlined in his first book From Aid to Trade, and develops it via research and examples to create a tested strategy that countries can follow to move forward.

Discover information on five key OBED principles:

  • Wealth acceleration
  • Moving GDP percentages from Agriculture to Manufacturing to Services
  • Diversifying across the economy
  • Avoiding income inequality
  • Pursuing SEVA (superior economic value added)

From Trade to Self-Sustainability offers a sure path toward economic success and reduction of poverty.
