The Monfort Plan:

The New Architecture of Capitalism

BY Jaime Pozuelo-Monfort


Adobe E-Book 592 pages March 2010


The Monfort Plan is a five-year, forward looking plan to eradicate extreme poverty from the developing world, and details how microfinance has made a difference to developing countries. This book proposes a new institution based in the developing world with the potential to provide a basic, free, and universal service in the areas of water, sanitation, healthcare, and education to the extreme poor worldwide. The provision will be subject to a certain degree of conditionality in areas ranging from corruption to legal environment. The new institution will be established in a new international territory based within a specific country in Subsaharan Africa and will emerge in 2015.

In The Monfort Plan author Jaime Pozuelo-Monfort engineers and designs a solution to lessen the burden of poverty. In order to do so he relies on the social sciences to bring about innovation and forward looking economic policies and financial instruments in the context of a paradigm shift.

This book presents a multidisciplinary approach to policymaking that combines a range of fields in the social sciences, looking at the history behind the Marshall Plan, the formation of the European Union, and the Bretton Woods Institutions, in order to determine how a Marshall Plan for Africa-and the creation of New Institutions in the developing world-could work. We live a moment of crisis in which creative policymaking might prove useful when proposing outcomes for a revitalized framework for capitalism to thrive and better serve the world.

Walks you through the technicalities of the new architecture of capitalism in a straightforward manner

Provides a holistic view of how microfinance combined with the right economic policies and financial instruments could help change the world for the poor

Contains sweeping and detailed recommendations on how to build a new capitalist paradigm that helps elevate the poor and improve the human condition

Incorporating commentary from some of the top minds in the field of microfinance, this book puts the method of microfinance in perspective.


JAIME POZUELO-MONFORT has earned graduate degrees in engineering, business administration, financial economics, financial engineering, economic development, public administration, international law and government, and public health. He has worked in the technology sector internationally and in the financial industry in New York and London. He is a regular contributor to Roubini Global Economics, The Huffington Post, and Cinco Dias.
