Sam Pitroda is an Indian-American innovator, entrepreneur and policy maker who has served as a cabinet minister and advisor to seven different Indian heads of state. He is also author of the consequential book “Redesign the World: A Global Call to Action.” In his presentation to the June 18 – 19 Schiller Institute Conference Mr. Pitroda makes the observation that we live in a society where the purpose of government policy is to benefit power and profit, not planet and people. Economic success is judged not by how many people are lifted out of poverty but by how many billionaires are created and technology is used not for development but for surveillance and war. This type of society is untenable and must change. Using the principle of Gandhian non-violence we must learn to collaborate, cooperate and co-create for the purpose of ushering in a new world architecture which benefits all people.
