Small Solutions To Big Problems

We live in an odd world. There are solutions to many problems, but increasingly people are ignoring the simple efficient solutions.We have governments throwing more and more money at problems in the hope that they will be solved and while at the lowest levels more resources mean more results, the management layers above tend to consume a larger and larger amount as the project grows. Also any failure in the structure tends to filter down and disrupt anyone below, decreasing the useful work done. These tend to be the major problem with a hierarchical structure.

What we need is a more distributed organisation… where solutions are applied locally and successful solutions are shared with the world.
