Kofi Annan calls 2005 the year of the Microcredit with the words, “Microcredits are not a donation, they are a way for low-income households to have the same rights as us. This finally acknowledges that the poor of this world are the solution, and not the problem!”

As an asset manager and man, as a commuter between the (still) 1st and 3rd world, I represent why Kofi Annan, specifically about 2008, is right, and why the “global financial crisis is based on a perceptual distortion and why there is no contradiction between being n investor and at the same time doing good”.
