Distributed Leadership in the Obama Campaign

The Obama campaign owes its victory not to a single charismatic candidate, but to the efforts of a disciplined and motivated organization whose roots go back to landmark movements of the 1960s. Marshall Ganz describes how the principles and practices he learned around organizing and leadership played out in the most recent presidential election.

What (if Anything) Should Be Done About Improving the System of Electing a President?

Arnold Barnett offers a "pragmatic compromise" between a popular vote and the current Electoral College system, a potential cure for the current "funhouse mirror" of election politics based on weighted averages.

Climate Change: The Economics of and Prospects for a Global Deal

From Nicholas Stern's market perspective, climate change constitutes an "externality" that, like traffic grid lock in a city center, arises when some people's actions affect the welfare of others, at no cost to the perpetrators.

Global and Domestic Imbalances: Why Rural China is the Key

Contrary to popular thinking, China owes its astonishing economic expansion not to far-sighted government policy but to hundreds of millions of entrepreneurial peasants. Yasheng Huang's research reveals not only how small-scale rural businesses created China's miracle but how that nation's recovery from the global recession and righting the massive East-West trade imbalance depend on this same under-acknowledged sector.

Sparks fly for education in India

Sparks fly when entrepreneurial minds collide at MIT, and the repercussions can be felt across the globe. So it is with Spark, an idea incubator run by a number of MIT Sloan alumni and students. The Massachusetts-based organization is working to provide financial support to private schools in India, in the face of the Indian government's unwillingness to invest in its woeful public education system. As part of MIT Sloan's Sustainability Lab this spring, a team of current MIT students developed a model to help Spark determine which private schools to invest in. Correspondent Scott Rolph spoke with team member Ali Wyne on the model the team developed and the growing sense of social responsibility among MIT Sloan students.

Intellectual Capital: Simon Johnson on the Financial Crisis, Part 2: 10/21/08

By now, the global financial crisis is something we're becoming all too familiar with. But knowing about it and knowing what to do about it are two distinctly different things. In this exclusive podcast, MIT Sloan economics expert Professor Simon Johnson provides studied insights on what the government and financial institutions need to do to turn things around. For Johnson, who recently returned to MIT after serving as chief economist at the International Monetary Fund, proper policy is a key step towards setting things right, as is strong, decisive, coordinated action.

Student Stories: Oliseyi Boroffice

Growing up in Nigeria, Seyi witnessed the effects of poverty firsthand. Consequently, the steps he's taken as an adult have been moving toward one goal: alleviating that poverty. As a recent graduate of the MIT Sloan/JFK School of Government dual-degree program, Seyi learned key lessons in how to make business work in the complex, and often insufficient, infrastructure of a developing country. A firm believer that entrepreneurship is essential to creating jobs and eradicating poverty, Seyi is headed back to his native land to put his education and his passion to work. On the eve of his graduation, correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate spoke with Seyi about resisting the lure of big business in the U.S. and his hopes for the future of Nigeria.

Indonesia: The power of inspired social fields — Otto Scharmer

From Huffington Post I’ve just returned from a weeklong deep dive into the frontline of societal renewal in Indonesia. In an earlier blog I shared some of my experiences with a group of Indonesian leaders from government, business, and civil society who came for a weeklong module at MIT in September. They were participants in the MIT IDEAS program that I chair, which takes leaders from society’s three sectors (business, government, civil society) on a 12-month journey of personal, professional, and institutional innovation and renewal. This time we came together again for a weeklong retreat on Wakatobi, a group of remote islands in the Banda Sea, which is in the Coral Triangle region that is part of the earth’s second most important biodiversity region (second only to the Amazon). In 2009 (May 15 2009) six countries (Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Timor Leste, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands) signed the Coral Triangle Initiative … Read More »The post Indonesia: The power of inspired social fields — Otto Scharmer appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.

The arrogance of the disciplinarians — Roberto Rigobon

From The Hill People love to use moral hazard as an excuse to inflict pain on others. So do governments, as we are seeing as the European Union once again threatens Greece with severe measures for that nation’s failure to fully implement the EU’s harsh austerity measures. The argument is extraordinarily simple: if a country cannot discipline itself, then we will teach it discipline through financial lashes. After all, didn’t Greece bring this pain on itself? A similar mindset drove debt restructuring in Argentina in 2001. The U.S. treasury wanted to make Argentina an example for the whole Latin American region: If Argentina did not reduce its fiscal deficit to zero as promised, the argument went, the nation would deserve to suffer and the government would need to go. Indeed, Argentina did not reduce its deficit to zero, but it got it down to 0.6 percent in the third quarter of … Read More »The post The arrogance of the disciplinarians — Roberto Rigobon appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
