This article discusses the economic and political value of design. How design can be used to create social change and alleviate poverty.
The way in which an increase in industry production and value can decrease phone debt. That this all can be done through intelligent design.
This way of alleviating poverty and helping third world countries is one that I find very impersonal. It also has a chance creating a great divide between rich and poor. It doesn’t look at the strength and knowledge of the local culture. Which I believe is integral to create an equal relationship between East and West. That one culture not valued over the other.
