Carlos Slim is currently the world's richest man - having made his fortune out of Mexico in mobile telecoms. Soon after the Accion-sponsored crisis caused by IPO of microfinance which happened first in Mexico, Carlos Slim established a fund with Grameen for true bottom-up microcredit


Could Slim help form the desperately needed bottom-up billionaires giving club. The partnership one orchestarted by Bill Gates doesnt lead to the same future. Where friends of Yunus want the poorest to own their own banks, market channels, microentrepreneurs telecnetres , Gates wants microsoft partners to own those


While Yunus sees open source in world's most vital service needs as direction to bring down degrees of separation on life critical information, Gates lives in a world where those that are big charge a toll for each connection.


While Yunus sees boundaries as ever more risky to all youth's futures which need to increasingly align with nature's evolutionary riules of self-organsiing and open, Gates sides with macroeconomic professions whose valuation prioritise separabilioty and one-sideed ownership not the co-creative commons


Who might those helping Yunus to form a giving 2.1 network aim to linkin first with Slim. Mo Ibrahim is another interesting telecoms billionniare. His foundation now aims to prize african leaders who open up the most transparency . Potentially compatible linkins of Mo's board include Mary Robinson - a founding member of friends of Grameen and as ex=president of Ireland - a person with a misison to restore pro-youth economics across Europe as well as a veteran networker of African women and health issues
