Development 2.0 – blend of economic and social objectives

http://psdblog.worldbank.org/psdblog/2008/10/odd-bedfellows.html
Referencing a item that was posted back in March, the PSD blog talks again about “development 2.0” and the opinion that in the future this model may gradually replace the traditional-style development model.  The lead link also mentions a recent report by the US Chamber of Commerce, “Development 2.0: Changing the Way Globalization Works“.  There is much talk of partnerships, crossover planning and role of multinationals in emerging markets.

“Private-sector action is not simply altruistic, but reflects a growing overlap in interests as development challenges are increasingly impacting the ability of firms to operate effectively.”

All this concentration on partnerships and crossover planning will no doubt raise many IP issues!
