After 15 years Sam Daley-Harris (transparency I feel I know Sam more as a friend than at a professional level) handed over microcreditsummit leadership to Larry Reed. Sam had convened the inaugural sumit in DC and to end 2011 the Queen Sofia of Spian proved the most loyal opinion leading supporter being the guest host of the final world microcreditsummit out of spain in 2011 as well as encouraging everyone with a southern hemisphere concern to join her at the superb Kenya Summit in 2010 linkedin around Jamii Bora -a microcreidt model I value as simplest to understand
Larry Reed is clearly up for damage limitation. His representaion of the state of the campaign resonates round te word vulnerability. For the first time in the annual num er counting reach of microcredit has gone down worldwide. Actually if you are studying the real microcredit its gone up (but phony microcredit has been slashed by India's government after al the harm done).  But nowhere yet are we going back to actually sharing system replicatuon knowhow that6 I as a mathamaticain would have hoped the purspoe was. Back in 1997 I though the idea was to understand hoiw the original models in bangaldesh work and only ever to celebarte analgous bottom-up replications. The big funds that have taking over microcerdit in the last 15 years have done none of that. It seems that the campaign -and keeping the delegarte price of te summit low- is hooked into sponsors who do not represent the solution the world keem together to understand in 1997 and ceelbrate as pivotal to millennum goals. Unless the open educational quality of microcredit summit rebounds from an intelectually bankrupt bottom, what can the point be. This isnt to say some of the new teams interviews arent interesting but we are talking about futures without fully addressing the learnings about the huge system errors that much of the mfi community transgressed.
