Some "Learning for development" recommendations:
- become quicker at feedback
- from a planner to a surfer mentality
- give more value to people who understand local conditions
- put a capability in place to respond to feedback

The Learn4dev annual meeting was the perfect occasion to exchange with colleagues on new trends and capacity challenges. Below you will find inspiring keynote messages from two of the guest speakers:

Ontology and capital - 
Ontological Design: Capital

Transforming money and credit move from being instruments that reinforce inequality into tools for genuine public service.

"A world after capitalism would transform money and credit from external forces that shape the lives of individual, into instruments that serve people. Two important steps would reduce the power of money:

[ Expanded Public Goods ]

First, there would be expanded public provision of key goods and services, think; housing, education, health, transport, pensions and insurance, making these available to all as a right. 

[ Creation of Information Commons ]

Second, there would be growth of a new commons, through the internet, making; information, the media, music and other goods, practically free at the point of consumption.  

[ Creative Flourishing ]

Creative interpersonal relations would flourish, giving greater depth to the arts, greater fairness and equality would go together with greater popular participation in literature, music, theatre and all the things that add color to human existence. 

[ Reduced Influence of Money ]

Money would become mostly a practical means of keeping accounts and delivering goods and services to people across society. At the same time money would offer the opportunity to exercise choice once basic needs were covered, by obtaining goods such as clothing, food, holidays, and so on, from the private sector.

[ Credit Security ]

Credit could similarly be reduced to practical and subsidiary role in individual life. There would be public banks, offering a secure outlet for saving while public pension schemes could allow choice on the proportion of income set aside for retirement.

[ Suppressing Speculation ]

Modern banks already possess databases and statistical techniques to assess and evaluate the credit worthiness of huge numbers of individuals, but they deploy these to make speculative loans, adopting this model led to the giant crises we're currently going through. An alternative society would take over these methods, using them to smooth consumption according to choice and without speculation. 

[ Post Capital Domination ]

Reducing the power of money and credit, would eliminate the poisonous role they now play in social, political, moral and ethical matters. The intrinsic merits and qualities of individuals, would have more scope to act as true means of distinction. Culture and the arts would be rid of the oppression of monetary wealth. Interpersonal relations would be freed of monetary calculations. The democratic process and the accountability of public office would be improved. With money and credit under control, society would gain a profound freedom.
