Connectivity = Productivity

Iqbal Quadir is an entrepreneur born in Bangladesh who has proven that investing in technology empowers the citizens, even in poor countries. He has achieved to build a mobile telephone network in Bangladesh with private investment. I highlight three quotes from his appearance at TED:

Specialization needs dependability and dependability needs connectivity.

Connectivity leads to dependability that leads to specialization that leads to productivity.

In short:

A telephone is a weapon against poverty.
