I’m a big fan of Wikipedia, it’s my main page and I’ve spent hours and hours reading articles. I was reading about Wikipedia in the article Wikipedia when I read this:
“In a study of Wikipedia as a community, economics Ph.D. student Andrea Ciffolilli argued that the low transaction costs of participating in wiki software create a catalyst for collaborative development, and that a “creative construction” approach encourages participation.”
So that got me thinking, intellectual constructs are a form of wealth, just think of all the intellectual copyrights out there. But how do you measure the wealth and intellectual property generated from a project that’s never been sold? How much richer is the world and each individual when they benefit from an Open-source project?

M i z z M a r i asked:
My grandmother has commercial land up for sale. She recently decided to use her land and start a business. She contacted Mr. B, a local “community development” type of consultant that would aid her in navigating through the system, put together local developers, and contact lenders. He coordinated a group of said people to discuss the plans of her business.
Mr. B had my grandmother sign an office-made contract at the last minute. The contract (in short) states that he would perform the duties of contacting people, providing resources, and dedicating time to putting her business ventures together. The contract stated that he would receive 10% of development sales and property alterations because of his services.
The business project fell through. The lenders couldn’t lend the amount she needed and the developers Mr. B gathered stated she wouldn’t profit (barely break even). She did not continue with the business plan.
Her realtor, outside of Mr. B’s scope, found a prospect buyer of her land. Mr. B states he is still to receive 10% of the sale because my grandmother signed a contract. His services had nothing to do with the buyer the realtor was able to produce. Mr. B’s services did not produce a buyer, lender, or anything.
Is he legally entitled to 10%? My grandmother was pressured into signing (she owed him 2 months of fees). She is not an educated person and was ignorant of the different aspects of the contract. It’s questionable as to if he simply took advantage of her intelligence in order to increase his personal gain.
“World Bank offers PPP financing options”
Recognizing the Philippines Public-Private Partnership (PPP) expansion’s potential to resolve the country’s challenges including infrastructure development and poverty reduction, the World Bank has identified a variety of financing options and strategies that the government can avail of to propel such initiative.
Bert Hofman, World Bank Country Director, said public-private participation in infrastructure development not only fills a critical financing gap for the government, but also improves the delivery of services.
“PPP has clear linkages to the country’s competitiveness and prospects for sustained growth,” Hofman said, after citing business leaders’ sentiments that the overall quality of infrastructure service delivery in the Philippines remains a concern and has emerged as a key impediment to the country’s economic competitiveness.
“We are prepared to work with the government in some important areas for accelerating the PPP program,” Hofman said at the conference organized by the government as a forum with the private sector and development partners in evaluating investment opportunities, profiles of PPP projects, as well as policy, regulatory, and legal issues concerning the infrastructure sector.
Hofman added that the World Bank welcomes the government’s plans presented at the conference, with emphasis on transparency and competitive processes in project selection and bidding. “It’s encouraging to see that the government is putting considerable resources into bringing bankable projects to the market,” he said.
The conference is a follow-up to President Aquino’s recent executive order that created a PPP Center of the Philippines. The new agency is expected to spur the implementation of PPP programs by seeking ways to accelerate the financing, construction, and operation of key infrastructure projects.
Hofman listed a number of World Bank financing products and services that the Philippines could tap to accelerate PPP projects.
For instance, while the bank offers 30-year loans to middle-income countries with repayment schedules that address specific needs of projects, such loans can also be blended with private finance to cut amortization costs and ease pressures to shore up tariffs to make projects viable.
“The use of such hybrid schemes is becoming more and more common in an effort to reduce the total cost of financing for poor communities,” Hofman said.

United Nations: The Chance for Millions
The United Nations (UN), founded in 1945, is a famous international organization that is dedicated to solving the problems that challenge humanity. These problems range on a wide variety of issues. Today, one of the biggest goal on the UN agenda is to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger.
To achieve this goal, the UN has founded the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), World Food Program (WFP), and International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). Each is working to fulfill the World Food Summit’s aim of eradicating global hunger and poverty: WFP with food aid, FAO through its technical expertise in agriculture, and IFAD via international financial assistance. Increasingly, the three agencies are finding joint solutions to dealing with emergencies and promoting recovery and development. #
Of these agencies, the WFP is the UN’s frontline agency in food aid. The WFP is the world’s largest international food aid organization combating hunger in underdeveloped nations with severe food shortages. The operation aims to saving lives in refugee crises and other emergencies, improve nutrition and quality of life of world’s most vulnerable people at critical times in their lives, and enable development by (a) helping people build assets that benefit them directly; (b) promoting the self-reliance of poor people and communities.# The agency also provides the logistics support necessary to get food aid to the right people at the right time and in the right place by land, air, and sea 24/7. The WFP works to put hunger at the center of the international agenda, promoting policies, strategies and operations that directly benefit the poor and hungry.#
The WFP runs emergency and development projects in 78 countries worldwide. In 2006, they distributed food to 87.8 million of the poorest people in the world, including 58.8 million children. Of those, 24.3 million people are in development programs and 63.4 million are beneficiaries in emergency and protracted relief and recovery operations. Since it was founded in 1962, WFP has fed more than 1.4 billion of the world’s poorest people and invested more than $30 billion dollars in development and emergency relief.#
The WFP’s innovative projects not only put food on the tables of the weakest and poorest: jobless mothers, school children, landless farmers and HIV orphans. They also help the hungry to secure food and an income by themselves so they can break out of the poverty trap and build a sustainable future. The WFP school meals encourage hungry children to attend school with their school feeding formula: food attracts hungry children to school. An education broadens their options, helping to lift them out of poverty. With the WFP’s development projects, workers are paid not with money, but with food rations to build vital new infrastructure that will increase the food security of households or communities. The special role of WFP food assistance is to give people the chance to take the first steps out of the hunger trap.#
With the help of the United Nations’ World Food Program, millions of people each year are given hope 365 days a year. They are given a chance to live and re-build their lives to support themselves and their families. Most of all, children are given a chance to change their future.
How do you feel about daylaborers getting stimulus money for training in this economy?
Facts are that over 80% of day laborers are illegal aliens, which the story refers to as immigrants.
Don’t you believe this money should be spent on getting American citizens who have lost their jobs employment?
Do you feel this is an outrage?
$1.2M grant brings day laborers indoors for job training
BY Clare Trapasso
Tuesday, December 22nd 2009, 9:30 AM
They wait on the city’s streetcorners, often shivering in the cold, hoping someone will drive by and offer them a job. Soon, they will be able to come indoors.
Beginning next month, day laborers will be eligible for job training and social service programs in three Queens neighborhoods under a new $1.2 million initiative paid for with federal stimulus dollars.
But advocates say they won’t be satisfied with anything less than full-fledged immigration centers.
“The city is doing a great job trying to create these kinds of services for our community,” said Ligia Guallpa of the Latin American Workers Project, a Jackson Heights-based nonprofit. But, she added, “the city needs to consider creating real, sustainable job centers.”
The new services will be available for low-wage immigrants in Jackson Heights, Woodside and Flushing starting on Jan. 4. The city Department of Youth and Community Development also will launch two similar programs in Brooklyn and one on Staten Island.
But Guallpa said she would rather see the city invest in permanent job centers that can educate and train workers and advocate on behalf of them. She is worried about what will happen to the initiative when the stimulus money runs out in September.
Day laborers routinely contend with intimidation from local residents, merchants and police, she said. And with the poor economy, there’s less work for the immigrants, who often get stiffed on their pay, she added. Her group runs a day-laborer center in Brooklyn that organizes workers and provides job and English-language training.
“We need job centers that…understand the real issues that day laborers are facing in New York City,” said Guallpa, whose group applied to run one of the Brooklyn programs.
Each group participating in the initiative will be required to work with about 80 immigrants, said Youth and Community Development spokesman Ryan Dodge.
Edwin Meléndez, a member of the city’s Temporary Commission on Day Laborer Job Centers, believes job centers can be good for the community too. “You mitigate the conflict between workers and merchants and neighbors who may object to [the day laborers] standing on corners,” he said.
Councilman-elect Daniel Dromm (D-Jackson Heights) said he plans to advocate for permanent centers during his term.
“We need to address the problems that day laborers face holistically, rather than piecemeal,” Dromm said.
