From Trade to Self - Sustainability
Creating Wealth to End Poverty: OBED principles at work
Fresh Strategy Press
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.
