Retired Business Executives
IAED needs you!
Get involved! Your knowledge, experience, and wisdom is valuable to IAED and yourself! Don't let them "put you out to pasture." Think charitable, exciting, stimulating challenges; and act on your years of experience.
IAED looks at realistic economic development for developing countries and sees that process as holistic and all encompassing; an over all umbrella of every discipline. Therefore, whatever your life experiences are, you can find a place in IAED, where you can make a meaningful contribution to helping others.
The biggest mistake or crime that businesses and organizations make, is to retire people who have spent their entire life accumulating, experience, knowledge and wisdom. We respect your age and experience, and want you to join us in doing real meaningful activities which will be personally fulfilling to you .
American (U.S.A.) corporations have "dumped" 10's of millions (World Bank's figures) of experienced managers since 1980 in the name of "restructuring" and "re-engineering" their businesses (cutting the fixed costs.) The developing countries needs (your) experience and expertise. See the World Problems & Conditions.
Look at the recent experience in Russia. Poorly managed huge government businesses which were privatized, and still have not been able to effectively manage themselves. Instead of managing their businesses, they took the new money from the stocks and loans and moved it off to tax havens and other places; rather than investing it back into the businesses and growing them. And, you can't fault Russia alone for that strategy. Managerial "effectiveness" and "efficiency" are a long way off for most of the developing countries and new entrants into the new globalization of the "new world economic order."
The least developed countries have an even worst situation. They have been "Structurally Adjusted" by the IMF and World Bank, now with huge debt (e.g. Mozambique* with $1.2 million debt payments every week), then told to privatize their businesses and compete with the markets and business brokers/traders of the well established West dominated, and controlled global markets. Lots of Luck!

* MOZAMBIQUE DEBT PAYMENTS WERE SUSPENDED BY PARIS CLUB OF GOVT DONORS to whom $3.4B (40%) of Mozambique's debt is owed, this week (3/15/2000). Several countries intend to forgive Mozambique's remaining debt. Aside from govts, intl. finance institutions hold another $2.1B (25%) of its debt. Mozambique received some debt relief in June 1999 ($3.7B), which resulted in annual payments dropping from $112M to ~ $73M. It's debt service has been $1.4 million a week, mostly to World Bank & IMF. The World Bank has given Mozambique a $2.5 million emergency loan & intends to give another $15M.
