There are at least two reasons to believe that, on the margin at least, an approach to solving big social issues that starts with a foundational "blank page" is worthwhile. First there are so many examples of traditional thinking supported with the mega billions that traditional agents of change (World Bank, UN, IMF) bring that have proven to be simply ineffective. Second if the traditional approaches were effective there still isn't enough money in the world to roll them out universally.
For these two reasons alone the efforts and approach that Insight Labs is bringing to the analysis of Big challenges should be commended and supported by those who see the world as having the potential to be a better place.
