President Bill Clinton Speaks About Information Technology

President Bill Clinton spoke at Salesforce.com Dreamforce Conference last Thursday December 8, 2010.  He stated that, “although Information Technology brings the world together”, it will not fully be able to achieve this objective for three reasons:

1. The world is unequal that goes beyond income to diseases like cholera in Haiti.  There are over 100 million children worldwide that do not receive an education..

2. The world is highly unstable.  The world financial crisis brought down economies like Ireland.  The government of Iceland fell.  China has 35 Million people unemployed because the US and Europe could not buy their goods.

3.  The world is unsustainable in the way we use energy.  Even those who do not believe in climate change see that countries collapse.

How do you fix this?  Build systems and institutions that have predictability in good results.
