Watch on YouTube Theo Kocken is a wonderful and extraordinary person. He's an economist, a highly successful entrepreneur, and an incredible, in-kind philanthropist. In-kind philanthropy means using your human talents to devise novel ways to raise and help address intractable problems. This includes focusing Dutch society on intergenerational equity when it comes to their pension system, making a terrific movie, together with Monty Python's Terry Jones, on financial booms and busts, developing a soon-to-be-released movie on global aging and its solutions, and, most importantly, developing new risk-sharing arrangements for Africa. These arrangements are operating on a daily basis with the support of most major international development institutions and making a major difference to the daily lives of a multitude of Africans. Indeed, Theo, who is virtually unknown to those outside the area of development finance, appears to be a one-man World Bank. He's pulling off real economic change that makes one wonder what the development banks have been doing and waiting for all these years.
