Business Technology to Hack PoverTy?

herman2141 Present at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank meeting on 8-14 October in Bali, Melinda Gates took time to visit the Go-Jek office there on Wednesday (10/18). The founder of Microsoft's wife talked with Go-Jek drivers, Go-Food partners and Go-Life talent to understand the potential of digital technology in improving welfare and building an inclusive economy. This is part of Melinda's job as a co-Choir of the Pathways for Prosperity Commission on Technology and Inclusive Development (Pathways Commission). The Pathways for Prosperity Commission itself was launched in January 2018 by Melinda Gates, co-Chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Indonesian Finance Minister, Sri Mulyani Indrawati; and Strive Masiyiwa, founder and leader of Econet Wireless, an American telecommunications company. The mission of this commission is to develop technology as a solution to hack global poverty. # How can technology be a solution to hacking global poverty? When spreadsheets were introduced in 1980, experts predicted that losses would occur in the Accounting sector. Since then, America has lost 400 thousand accountants. However, there are some predictions, namely the fact that spreadsheets also create new customer service based jobs with 600 thousand workers. Indeed, technology like two blades, can provide ease but is also addictive. In the end, technology cannot be said to be good or bad, depending on how we use it. That is why the Pathways for Prosperity Commission on Technology and Inclusive Development exists and tries to encourage business owners to join hands with the government. This is especially in developing countries to maximize the use of technology to hack poverty in their country. [This important finding]( of this commission, technological innovation can create opportunities not only for people with low economies to be more prosperous but also for poor countries to grow their economy in a new way. To realize people's welfare so far only through two main roads, namely manufacturing and natural resources. In its findings, the Commission identified several new paths in this modern era, one of which was through the use of technology. Melinda visited Go-Jek, a ride-sharing service whose claims succeeded in increasing its partner's average income by 44%. If true, this is also evidence of the use of technology to hack poverty. It also proves that change is happening throughout the world. # What must be done by entrepreneurs and the government? The first step is to ensure that everyone has access to digital technology, for example on the affordability of internet package prices. The reach of cellular phones has reached 3/4 of the world, but internet access is still limited. Like in Guinea Bissau, Africa, people have to pay USD81 for a 500MB data plan. In addition, there are still many community groups that are discriminated against in accessing technological innovations. Based on the Commission's analysis, in developing countries that still adhere to gender norms, almost 40% of women have lower access than men in internet use. The government certainly must intervene to overcome this. Technology may only be a tool, but it has extraordinary power. Technology can be a tool that can open opportunities to create prosperity and equality. --- --- Whatever type of business and product, in the sales chain there must be sellers and producers.
