Earlier this week I sat down for an exclusive interview with former President Bill Clinton. That interview will be aired this Sunday at 10 a.m. and 1p.m. ET on CNN. In the meantime, President Clinton had this piece in TIME on the work of the Clinton Global Initiative.
“It's not enough to just talk about solving the world's problems. A core principle behind the Clinton Global Initiative is what we call the Commitment to Action: our members work together to identify specific challenges and opportunities, and then commit to finding local, sustainable solutions with the ultimate goal of working ourselves out of a job,” President Clinton writes. “Because solutions are only effective if they are implemented, this year our special emphasis is on rallying people, organizations, and resources to do that. We're calling it Mobilizing for Impact.”
“To see what this looks like on the ground, consider the Tony Elumelu Foundation, which last year committed to a five-year, $1 million effort to design and implement a technical and vocational training curriculum to tackle the skills gap and unemployment problems in Nigeria. They're helping 1,200 students transition from theory to practice in such skills as masonry, carpentry, plumbing and electrical work. And last year, Injaz Al Maghrib committed to training 26,155 Moroccan students in entrepreneurship over three years.”
“We have not seen the likes of Rouhani in Iranian politics in a long time. He is no freelancing hard-line provocateur, like Ahmadinejad, whose flamboyant self-regard ultimately cost him the establishment’s trust,” writes Laura Secor in the New Yorker.
“Nor is he an embattled reformer, like Mohammad Khatami, the mild-mannered intellectual whose democratizing project ran aground on the implacable opposition of the deeper clerical state. Rather, Rouhani resembles his political patron, the former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, a nimble, pragmatic centrist with deep institutional roots within the Islamic Republic and a relationship of long standing with the Supreme Leader. Like Rafsanjani, Rouhani may not be the most idealistic President Iran has ever had; in the nineteen-nineties, he was hostile to the project of democratic reformers, firing many of them from the think tank he ran. But he is poised to be one of its most effective. By all appearances, he has set the diminishment of hostilities with the West as his No. 1 priority. And he is better placed than any President since Rafsanjani to achieve that goal.”
“Suppose you got no sleep last night and you have to take an intelligence test today. If you’re like most people, you’re not going to do so well on that test. Now suppose you are struggling with poverty and you have to take the same intelligence test. How, if at all, will your test score be affected?” asks Cass Sunstein on Bloomberg.
“Harvard University economist Sendhil Mullainathan and Princeton University psychologist Eldar Shafir offer a clear answer: You will probably do pretty badly. In a series of studies, they found that being poor, and having to manage serious financial problems, can be a lot like going through life with no sleep. The reason is that if you are poor, you are likely to be preoccupied with your economic situation, and your mind has less room for other endeavors. This claim has important implications for how we think about poverty and for how we select policies designed to help poor people.”
