Girls and the Sustainability Generations' Golden Era of Sino-English Economics 

China is now mediating worldwide what Queen Victoria with The Economist's James Wilson and Walter Bagehot started to try and do in 1860!
 Sadly James died of diarrhea nine  months into Calcutta project of his new development bank (charter now called standard-charter); it took another 120 years before Bangladesh girls network freed the oral rehydration cure that could have saved JW.

The first half of millennium two's wonderful win-win trades between med sea countries and China's coastal belt and the overland whole of Eurasia's silk road had been wiped out by the zero-sum Empire networks dominated by the East Indies company. This sad English invention may have been the worst corporate plunderer of all time- see the maps of whom it colonised and how its final insult to the world was drowning Chinese in Opioids reulting in their wirthdrawal of the fifth of the world's most civilised beings from world trade for over a century.

It wasn't until 1946 that  the eastern hempisphere  started to scale post colonial win-win trades - from japan to korea (South) to the China Diaspora superports. Such positive world trade made Japan the second largest economy by 1970 and the Chinese Diaspora the 3rd strongest financial network,

What happened next are the 2 greatest economic and educational stories ever conceived in english or in chinese languages (can you help mooc them)

1 The Rise of China as the laregst nation ever to seek win-win trades (with inward investnent of Diaspora) - see The Economist 1977 article of celebrating this dream   http://www.chinathanks.com/1977



2 The sustained progress of village girls networks in ending extreme poverty out of Bangladesh - the greatest educational innovation humanity will ever have the good fortune to linkin

 Breaking news tragedy of G7 
I understand that some bits of this story will be wrong, and other bits are what china doesnt like to boast about (because there are still, huge co-creativity challenges most of all with education and fintech  - see eg experiments of these people) but its very timely if yuxuan as star tsinghua graduate of her year, rhodes scholar of end poverty, top 1000 graduate alumni of serve china villages, china-qatar wise womens connector, regional young leader of province bordering n korea,  would be able to update shameran on her own version of this following her meeting with him 2 years ago during sir fazle's 80th birthday; 
 
do this now and we can be more effective in making sure alumni of jack ma sir fazle abed and tsinghua make the most of each other as the 3 world movements valuing small and family enterprises most
(Amy has grown up with village life in mao's central province which makes her very sceptical that china can achieve the goals below but of china and s asia dont get girls empowerment working on this now we may as well declare the sustainability generation as dead as a monty python parrot
please note - welcome this viewpoint being constructively debated with colleagues- at the moment any errors are mine alone not china's or anyone elses


IN SEARCH OF THE BEST 21ST C PEOPLES, TECH, EDU, FINANCE AND MEDIA CAN BE

Purpose of Chinese Capitalism (next 5 year phase started nov 2017)

To achieve sustainability goals inside china and to preferentially trade/collaborate with neighbors and others that wish to map how their peoples to achieve sustainability goals

-         All of Guterres Jim Kim and Lagarde have been briefed on this purpose by Xi Jinping during 2016-2017- this has been announced both at China's G20 sept 2016 the first G20 after the UN launched sustainability goals, BRI summit 1 Beijing May 2017 and at all WEF from summer WEF 2016  (nb china is annual host of summer wef); 

See Guterres comments after belt road Beijing 2017, see Lagarde’s remarks: IMF bylaw require us to move to capital of largest economy; see jim kim commitment to be joint leader in 21st c healthcare and supercities

NB half of the world's people live on 10% of the world's land within 3000 miles of beijing; so this means 1 China has to lead green goals collaboratively; 2 china most wants to accelerate end poverty research with the most overpopulated  rural regions among its neighbors (eg bangladesh and parts of india)

 Purpose of Ying Lowrey at Tsinghua – to be leading academic in S<Es before SME became popular

Starting life as one of china’s barefoot doctors, she git scholarship to usa where she became advocate for nation small enterprise associations as well as china-america student friendship exchange hub. She became mentored by the few us economists who love smes including columbia’s nobel economist Edmond Phelps

On returning to Tsinghua in 2010, Ying Lowrey was surprised how little public info existed on SMES. She approached Beijings number 1 billionnaires business leaders club- they said jack ma's technologists collected all sme data. She approached research arm Aliresearch and was told you can use our data to for tsingua sme curriculum and become an aliresearch associate. This happened just as China changed its policy from there being only 3 big internet companies to the internet companies being required to be ecosystem hubs for millions of starts ups. So she wrote the book alibaba way  (I left first 50 pages of book in offices of dr shameran abed and dr islam)

 A note on Chinese Capitalism – from 0 non-state companies in 1975 to 5 million startups in 2017

1975: China first invited billionaire diaspora to bring their inward investments and technologies and infrastructure engineers- chinese Keiretsu capital so to speak. After a decade it was decided all future leaders of the party needed to go to university and most would be expected to do one of two things- change a state enterprise, the responsibility for developing regions of china to include all the peoples. Jinping who had been sent to live in a poor village age 15-22, was in the first tsinghua alumni group of new party leaders and sent to a poorish province neighboring shanghai which happened to include Jack Ma’s town as a nascent tourist area

Over the years 1988-2008 Jinping  integrated poorer provinces with Shanghai and became involved with Shanghai’s three fold goal: biggest port in the world, epicengtre for western HQs  mediator of the region china s asia n asia (ie russia), mid asia ie west of china- see SCO summit in Qingdao now



. By 2007 he was being groomed as likely next president of China. You know had corporate keiretsu incubators of business and regional ones but not youth led ones- and you had the problem of how could china design interent to prevent all the fake sex=obsessed media etc of usa. Jack ma “accidentally” provided the answer at the same time as the subpriome collapse- his sme-led ecommerce and his digital cash alipay for smes kept china's village economy afloat and his love of developing chinese people friendships around world offered a paradigm- for china to embrace worldwide - it was decided that tencent and baidu could also fit that mould. All the while there were close connections with tsinghua which now benchmarked china’s number 1 suburban tech entrepreneur zone outside its gates with particular efforts on sharing economy solutions - and open edutech -that all supercities need to replicate and integrate with villages

 

SUMMARY 
Tsingua is the university of Chinese rejuvenation of party officials and purpose of capitalsm

Outside its door is the supercity prototype of hiubs and engtrepreneiur tech zone

This is also where Jack Ma has been asked tlo host the business club of 50 leaders whose purpose is developing china more than making money

Half an hour down the road is where the ;party hosts its major assembles on the future of serving china and the wish to trade with countries that wish to sustain the planet and rejuvenate youth

 

Chinese broadcaster cgtn has the mandate to investigate academics and thinktanks to make sure that none of them are led by people becoming arrogant gurus - all are involving youth in co-creating the chinese dream

Ying lowrey has gone from barefoot medic to host of tsinghua exchanges of deep girl empowerment

 China has half a billion under 30s. Most are the produce of the one child policy. With relatively little social safety net, each family is most dependent on its youth have access to extraordinary livelihoods. This means the top 60000 students from the 3 beijing universities circled around tsinghua have the most extraordinary alumni responsibility any graduate group has ever been asked to meet. Ying Lowrey helps hosts 500 meetups of these students with leaders like Romano Prodi spending a week briefing them on great conflict challenge and how to translate the world of cultures as well as languages

she said to him: On Jan 18 2014, I am going over from DC to london with a good chance of signing a technology and womens empowerment agreement which will lead to her finding out the interests of many first ladies especially in africa I and ... (female name 2) want to know if you will permit them to wholly organise a hi-trust womens collaboration live subprogram and continuing worldwide process of atlanta. The issue being that if you want top first ladies who care to come to (or in other ways MOOc Massively Open Online Celebrate) atlanta as a future capital of youth , you have to be in their diaries now.

 

(editors note Back In the days (2007) that Bangladeshi expatriates were entrusted to mediate capitals yunus forum, ...male 2  and dad and I had a similar problem before in London in signing up royal families like princess ann or her representative - it takes a long time and for a ,low level person like me it involves earning trust all the way up the line of intermediaries such as the sainsbury billionairess who implement prince charles green and microbanking (he wrote preface to banker for poor ) and princess anne's nursing college agendas as well as bottom-up futures within the editorial teams of The Economist which is due to celebrate its 175th year of being founded to end poverty in 2018 (something some of us are already planning to revolutionise). Lat time the chairwoman of ... (female name 3) offered to help we had run out of Yunus-asks that she could imagine implementing - a very difficult position for me! (no to worry but ...) I believe the proposal of female 1 and 2 ... is also exactly what Top Atlanta female name 4 (...) daughter wants. It is certainly something that makes madison avenue agencies wet themselves as it breakthrough all their greenwashing as female name 2 has already shown to the agency I most trust in new york

And it can be a good parallel model of what black hi-trust leaders circles also want most if I understand what eg rosa parks lawyer said to me and the spirit of the Tuskegee book Up from slavery of Booker Washington (things I (iefemale name 1) ... DC friend male name 2 ...; can explain all round DC better than I But I need to know now what you think of all of this because otherwise her first ladies networks already have huge platforms like UN week etc where they already know that they can present their issues in ways that grow youth collaboration year on year. For example if you look at the maps of the who's who of changing responsibility of the fashion industry you will see that first ladies are the missing links and you can count how many socially network around (female name 1)

The consequence was ... 

 The world said:Sometimes the only sustainable mediation and economic value of the Diaspora nation of Simth's-Scots is to put their foot in every culture the wrong way round while only using bagpipes to defend ourselves- a cheaper and more peacful policy than being ruled by politicians who spend 20% of a peoples lifetime on arms races As you may know the first editor of The Economist died before his time -9 months into trying to set up a microbanking project for queen victoria (James Wilson needing oral rehydration); the second editor Walter Bagehot completed the open systems change of the English Constitution so that queen victoria could chair commonwealth instead of mercnatile slavemaking. I might have thought that Atlanta could do with the bottom-up european royals trusting they can linkin but time to decide is now

Changing education

There has been a sea-change in the traditional ages on man. Compared with 1974 our children in 2024 generally go out to paid work (especially computer programming work) much earlier, maybe starting at nine, maybe at twelve, and we do not exploit them. But young adults of twenty-three to forty-five stay at home to play much more than in 1974; it is quite usual today for one parent (probably now generally the father, although sometimes the mother) to stay at home during the period when young children are growing up. And today adults of forty-three to ninety-three go back to school - via computerised learning - much more than they did in 1974.

In most of the rich countries in 2024 children are not allowed to leave school until they pass their Preliminary Exam. About 5 per cent of American children passed their exam last year before their eight birthday, but the median age for passing it in 2024 is ten-and-a-half, and remedial education is generally needed if a child has not passed it by the age of fifteen.

A child who passes his Prelim can decide whether to tale a job at once, and take up the remainder of his twelve years of free schooling later; or he can pass on to secondary schooling forthwith, and start to study for his Higher Diploma.

The mode of learning for the under-twelves is nowadays generally computer-generated. The child sits at home or with a group of friends or (more rarely) in an actual, traditional school building. She or he will be in touch with a computer program that has discovered , during a preliminary assessment, her or his individual learning pattern. The computer will decide what next questions to ask or task to set after each response from each child.

A school teacher assessor, who may live half a world away, will generally have been hired, via the voucher system by the family for each individual child. A good assessor will probably have vouchers to monitor the progress of twenty-five individual children, although some parents prefer to employ groups of assessors - one following the child's progress in emotional balance, one in mathematics, one in civilized living, and so on - and these groups band together in telecommuting schools.

Many communities and districts also have on-the-spot 'uncles' and 'aunts'. They monitor childrens' educational performance by browsing through the TC and also run play groups where they meet and get to know the children personally...

Some of the parents who have temporarily opted out of employment to be a family educator also put up material on the TC s for other parents to consult. Sometimes the advice is given for free, sometimes as a business. It is a business for Joshua Ginsberg. He puts a parents advice newsletter on the TC , usually monthly. Over 300 million people subscribe to it, nowadays at a 5-cent fee per person, or less. Here's an entry from the current newsletter:

"Now that TCs are universal and can access libraries of books, 3-d video, computer programs, you name it, it is clear that the tasks of both the Educator and the Communicator are far more stimulating that ten years ago.

One of my recent lessons with my ten-year-old daughter Julie was in art appreciation. In the standard art appreciation course the TC shows replicas of famous artists' pictures, and a computer asks the pupil to match the artist to the picture. Julie said to the computer that it would be fun to see Constable's Haywain as Picasso might have drawn it. The computer obliged with its interpretation , and then ten more stylised haywains appeared together with the question 'who might have drawn these?'. I believe we are the first to have prompted the TC along this road, but it may now become a standard question when the computer recognises a child with similar learning patterns to Julie's.

It is sometimes said that today's isolated sort of teaching has robbed children of the capacity to play and interact with other children. This is nonsense. We ensure that Julie and her four year old brother Pharon have lots of time to play with children in our neighbourhood . But in work we do prefer to interact with children who are of mutual advantage to Julie and to each other. The computer is an ace teacher, but so are people. You really learn things if you can teach them to someone else. Our computer has helped us to find a group of four including Julie with common interests, who each have expertise in some particular areas to teach the others.

The TC also makes it easier to play games within the family. My parents used to play draughts, halma, then chess with me. They used to try to be nice to me and let me win. This condescending kindness humiliated me, and I always worked frenetically to beat my younger brother (who therefore always lost and dissolved into tears.) Today Julie, Pharon and I play halma together against the graded computer, and Julie and I play it at chess. The computer knows Pharon's standard of play at halma and Julie's and mine at chess. Its default setting is at that level where each of us can win but only if we play at our best. Thus Pharon sometimes wins his halma game while Julie and I are simultaneously losing our chess game, and this rightly gives Pharon a feeling of achievement. When Julie and I have lost at chess, we usually ask the computer to re-rerun the game, stopping at out nmistakes and giving a commentary. As it is a friendly computer it does a marvelous job of consoling us. Last week it told Julie that the world champion actually once made the same mistake as she had done - would she like to see that game?

I intend to devote the next two letters to the subjects I have discussed here , but retailing the best of your suggestions instead of droning on with mine."

While the computer's role in children's education is mainly that of instructor (discovering a child's learning pattern and responding to it) and learning group matcher, its main role in higher education is as a store of knowledge. Although a computer can only know what Man has taught it, it has this huge advantage. No individual man lives or studies long enough to imbibe within himself all the skills and resources that are the product of the millennia of man's quest for knowledge, all the riches and details from man's inheritance of learning passed on from generation to generation. But any computer today can inherit and call up instantly any skill which exists anywhere in the form of a program.

This is why automatically updated databases are today the principal instruments of higher education and academic research. It is difficult for our generation to conceive that only forty years ago our scientists acted as tortoise-like discoverers of knowledge, confined to small and jealous cliques with random and restricted methods of communicating ideas. Down until the 1980s the world has several hundred sepaate cancer research organisations with no central co-ordinating database.

Macrae: he was an elegant writer of original ideas who delighted in paradoxes

In a list of 20th-century British prophets without honour in their own land, the name of Norman Macrae would surely be in the top half dozen. The lack of recognition was particularly odd as Macrae was a journalist, a profession cluttered with self-promoting egos, and his subjects — economics, politics, technology and several more — were standard fare in pubs and Parliaments. There was hardly an aspect of life that was off-limits for him; through his writing he changed many minds and opened even more; most of his ideas were ahead of their time; and he was incapable of writing a dull sentence. And yet, in Britain at least, his achievements went largely unheralded.

The contrast was not lost on Macrae — his articles delighted in paradoxes of every kind — but it was easily explained. In 1949 he joined The Economist, then as now a publication without bylines, and did not leave it until he retired in 1988. Though he went on to write several books and a column in The Sunday Times, as well as becoming an enthusiastic blogger, his finest phrases and most original ideas appeared in The Economist. He was its deputy editor from 1965-88, and though he hoped to become editor he never let frustrated ambition stunt the enormous role he played in the publication’s success. When he joined the paper in 1949, its circulation was roughly 30,000, on a par with The Spectator and the New Statesman. By the time he left, its circulation had grown to more than 300,000, dwarfing the other two. It had indeed become, in Macrae’s words, the “world’s favourite viewspaper”.

Norman Macrae was born in 1923 and went to Mill Hill School in north London. In 1935 he moved with his parents to Moscow, where his father was British Consul. The memories of Stalin’s purges, and of Hitler’s pogroms during another paternal posting, fuelled Macrae’s passionate belief in freedom — just as his experience in the RAF, as a navigator in bombing raids over Germany, later turned him against the waste of war. In 1945 he went up to Corpus Christi, Cambridge, to read economics. He was not impressed (“Much of Cambridge’s intellectual atmosphere then was of subpolytechnic Marxism”), and it was only when he arrived at The Economist that all the pieces fell into place and his life really began.

Despite its anonymity, The Economist was the perfect pulpit for Macrae. It allowed him to roam, geographically as well as intellectually, and it gave him the time to explore big ideas, many of which appeared in the paper’s surveys — the only occasion when authors had a byline.

Perhaps the most remarkable was “Consider Japan” in 1962; long before Westerners realised there might be something to learn from that defeated and hidebound nation, Macrae predicted Japan would become the world’s greatest manufacturer. One reader wrote to the editor urging that, next time Macrae went travelling, he should take a hat with him so the sun wouldn’t addle his brain.

Macrae’s articles were full of such prescience. In 1973, when oil prices quadrupled, he wrote that they would collapse — which they did, just as spectacularly, two years later. When others were extolling the settled borders of the mixed economy in the 1960s and 1970s, he was predicting a global wave of privatisation. In 1983 he forecast the Berlin Wall would come down in Christmas 1989; he was out by just six weeks. He repeatedly disputed the CIA’s analysis of the size and strength of the Soviet economy, and was in due course proved right. And in 1984 he described not just the coming of the internet but also the effects it would have on how people would work and where:

“Eventually books, files, television programmes, computer information and telecommunications will merge ... There will be cheap terminals around everywhere ... [which] will be used to access databases anywhere in the world, and will become the brainworker’s mobile place of work.”

One of the abiding temptations of futurologists is to predict what they wish for, and Macrae sometimes did just that. He had a deep distrust of politicians and officialdom, so naturally favoured a small state. Hence his words, describing a book he wrote in 1984 called The 2024 Report: “The main event of 1990-2010 was that the world’s 60-year spasm of big government disappeared. We stopped letting politicians spend the absurd 45 per cent of GNP in countries like Britain ... and we all came down to more like the 10 per cent of GNP spent through government in America in 1929.”

That was one of Macrae’s blind spots. The other was most obvious in the 1970s, when he urged the Heath Government on to bigger and bigger fiscal deficits in pursuit of faster growth and lower unemployment. It was one of the few occasions where his thinking was behind events. It took him some years to shed such crude Keynesianism and come to accept that his supply-side crusades were the surer path to faster growth.

Macrae was the most generous of colleagues, a much loved figure who in private struggled to string words into a half coherent sentence — until he picked up his pen. He was also an effective public speaker who for years delighted American audiences with his unique mix of eccentricity and brilliance. He was honoured by the Japanese with the Order of the Rising Sun in 1988. Perhaps that finally stirred the men in Whitehall, as he was appointed CBE later that year.

Macrae had a long and happy marriage to Janet Kemp, who died in 1994. They had a son and a daughter, who died in 1989 when she was 34. It needed a man of great resilience to take such blows, but nobody who knew Macrae could ever doubt that his was indeed a big heart............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Norman Macrae, CBE, journalist, was born on September 10, 1923. He died on June 11, 2010, aged 86

Bio/Description

A British economist, journalist and author, considered by some to have been one of the world's best forecasters when it came to economics and society. These forecasts mapped back to system designs mediated so that readers and entrepreneurial networks could exponentially calibrate shared alternative scenarios. He joined The Economist in 1949 and retired as its deputy chief editor in 1988. He foresaw the Pacific century, the reversal of nationalization of enterprises, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the spread of the internet, which were all published in the newspaper during his time there. Not to get bored, his first ten years in retirement produced the biography of Johnny Von Neumann (the mathematical father of computers and networks), a column for the UK Sunday Times, and a 'Heresy Column' for Fortune. He was the father of mathematician, marketing commentator, and author Chris Macrae. Their joint future history on death of distance in 1984 forecast that 2005-2015 would be humanity's most critical decade irreversibly impacting sustainability. In 1984, he wrote "The 2024 Report: a future history of the next 40 years". It was the first book to: provide readers with a brainstorming journey of what people in an internetworking world might do, and predict that a new economy would emerge with revolutionary new productivity and social benefits enjoyed by all who interacted in a net-connected world. In this book, he wrote: "Eventually books, files, television programmes, computer information and telecommunications will merge. We'll have this portable object which is a television screen with first a typewriter, later a voice activator attached. Afterwards it will be miniaturised so that your personal access instrument can be carried in your buttonhole, but there will be these cheap terminals around everywhere, more widely than telephones of 1984."

These are the most exciting times to be alive. Three generations are determining whether our species will be sustainable. For the first time we are designing technologies that have the same worldwide scale as nature. There is lots of work to be done.

 girlscansaveworld.jpg

 It would be wise to assume that we have to 2030 to ensure all systems are renewing next generations. At some stage, 2030 or soon thereafter. Risks will be compounding irreversibly – whether our species collapses because of climate, plague, or nuclear or other waves of terror.

 Its lovely having 17 sustainbability goals bur hard for the peoples to ensure that public servants are balancing 17 priorities.

 Entrepreneurial Revolution

Let’s consider a simpler model. This one was worked on for 18 years at The Economist between 1968 and 1984 as leaders around the world were interviewed on whether post-industrial revolution could sustain millennials as the first networked generation.

The Economist projected 3.5 billion jobs for youth of which 3 billion would be remew:

Renewing community so that wherever a child was born she had a fair chance of making the most of life

Renewing planet, ending carbon power by going green

Mediating way above zero=sum advantages of investing over 1000 times more in communication technologies 2016 versus 1946.

The Economist refined 4 goals with one early warning sign of whether system transformations were synchronized renewably

Two of these factors came from Keynes life work. He concluded that increasing economist designed what futures were possible for places, and that the Hippocratic oath of economic professionals should be:

End poverty

Continuously improve youth livelihoods out of every community – the goal most people demand as parents

Add in the two big change factors

Going green

Going globally to locally smart in distributing life critical knowhow  jobs and education

The warning signal was health and wellbeing. If we are making optimal use of the new technology, its big data local actionability, basic access to healthcare will be 10 times more affordable. Not health services have many moving parts. By basic The Economist sought to prioritise that which maximized populations working lives. Most health services of that kind are affordable. These are different from

Cost of operations mainly caused by accidents and aggression,

Costs of depressed or dirty society – eg obesity, drug use, some cancers

Prolonging life of elderly at any cost

Navigating all of the above involves mediating cultural and other beliefs that kept people going during the industrial era. Quite frankly the first industrial revolution from 1800 was an era one of extremely uneven progress geographically. At the time The Economist started researching ER one group of humans were racing tpo te moon while over a thir still had no access to electricity grids. This is why The Economist timelines to sustainability included the overarching recommendation- by the strat of the 21st century the majority of people will need to recognise that mans greatest risk is differences in incomes and expectations between rich and poor nations

It is also worth repeating with so much work to be done, any place or region which says it cant design full and good livelihoods for all its youth has a terrifying media/mediation problem. It is spiraling seriously non-sustainable systems which need urgent transformation – benchmark how other places have collaboratively transformed beyond such failed system design

 if you have time to read it i am sure it poses many questions for investigative journalism on who's who -with europes and world financial systems at a tipping point -predicted 40 years ago in the economist survey of the next 40 years - who has the time to dare to value empowering youth's working lives with million times more collaboration - clearly this is the exact opposite of the conversation going on all across europes political corridors of power - unlike japan, gernany (its constitutions if not its people) hasn't cross-culturally learnt anything over last three quarters of a century pro-youth about sustainably leading a continent towards post-industrial economics

A different way to connect 10000 youth -dedicated to way james wilson mediated entrepreneurs and royalty from 1843

To maximise their collaborative productivities in clusters where hi-trust leaders/partnerships are looking after investing patiently in their collaborations with transparent multi-win models

Friends and I have researched most of yunus international youth movements since 2005 and have concluded that accidentally powerbrokers (identify any top 10 people who have most power in representing yunus) are recruiting youth but not to maximise those youth's own productivities and dreams where those youth in wealthier places who can action the most sustainable inpact. What yunus was able to do so brilliantly back in bangladeshhasn't been extended to how investment in youth using today's million times more collaboration technology out of every community could lead to 10 times more productivity and sustainable growth of every economy. If you want to know why you have to collect the stories of all the people who brought grameenphone to bangladeshvillages from 1996. Yunus has accidentally become the least connected of those who have the most resources from developing mobile. Conversely if you interview yunus 20 times you will undoubtedly get to hear of 50 more exciting concepts for youth projecst than any one person will ever tell you about but few if any of these projects actually have an investment structure and worldwide media of their own in place. You cant intergate a top 50 www youth economy without its own virtually free media. Sir Tom Hunter (the scot who originally funded clinton global) was right in demanding different capitals take responsibility for one or two of these projects each but just as he was helping glasgow choose its projects (eg end nurseless villages) he went from being uk's richest entrepreneur to one with least cashflow. Anyone who attended yunus 70th birthday wish weekend in glasgow summer 2010 that my faimly mainly sponsored surely saw this

where 6 generations of my family came from

  • actioning the purpose of economics and mediation as investing in next generation's productivity out of every community; finding ways to diarise the most local cross-cultural viewpoints and urgent systemic needs
  • for example my maternal granddad spent 25 years with gandhi mediating india's independence and my paternal granddad grew up as a spy of what was going most wrong in russia and germanybetween 1914-1945. My father had an itinerant childhood following grandads placements at different british consulars; he spent his last days as a teenager navigating air planes over modern day bangladesh and myanmar; he then was one of last to be mentored by keynes on the hippocratic oath economists need to exercise as the most connected discipline that rules the world

some incidents to reort from my own life

1973 postgraduated from cambridge as a statistician- first project what was action learning value of youth being networks- 3 years of experiements of uk national dev project in computer assisted learminli led to my dads's entreprenurial revolution trilogy in the economist 1976 and 1984 and our 1984 book http://www.erworld.tv/id133.html mapping what can happen tio internet generation if every great chnage is empowered bottom-up and collaboratively; spent 1980s with a french company using mit database to co;lect world's most extensive information of what societies wanted from worlds biggest brands and most resourced decsiion-makers; 90s worked at world's largest ad agency and consulted to many of big 5 accounting firms on what they were wrongly valuing in terms of integrity of youth's futures and how they were failing to help clients understand partnership invitations around millennium goal visions as the most political processes on earth

2001 both 9/11 and debriefing of 10 years of research on every way global professions had wrong valuation metrics for multi-win models -errors include value multipliers of trust/goodwill, valuing transpaarency,valuing intergenerational sustainability using exponentials impact metrics

2001-2005 united with gandhian, conflict resolution, medical networks (eg GRN london03 delhi 04 sarajevo 05 ...) and found they could only empower youth when they found bottom-up ngos; when my main mentor died in 7/7 hosted event at islington hub - only come if you have one sustainability crises issue that you will share all your best networking contacts on

people in london may think they have a mission similar to my own but whilst there are 4 people I still want to know better in terms of do they have enough resources to activate a cluster of youth i havent found anyone whose help has been consitsncy for youth10000

they would need to compare their actions openly with leaders who norman macrae remembrance parties have been the opportunity to search out and celebrate

eg the japanese cluster (asia pacific would nOT be the most exciting net generation rghion if it hadnt been for japan's win-win-win economiccs with youth during 3rd quarter of 20th c - it based world trade on winwins and peaceful sectors unlike the sectoirs that sponsred george bush's first decade of 21st c) , the south african cluster, the inside bangladesh at 41cluster where I am confident they will select 500 youth clubs who can build the collaboration economy are being mapped

of the 4 londoners i cant get to - arguably moibrahimhttp://www.moibrahimfoundation.org/en is the one who might most like to know about the global summit

he made his money will cellphone in africa so knows what mobiles can do; his philanthropy strtaegy is to hunt 40 place leaders to trust africa's develpoment , while a parralel satellite tv station for africa is hunting out 40 industry sector leaders -what the bbc's world service could have been if murdoch hadnt been alowed to bully everyone around the bbc since 1993 as part of his deal with china to be alowed tp do satellite tv sports there

my 9/11 partner networks began with medical and youth supporter paul komesaroff in australia- he introduced me to gandhian ganesh devy and mojtaba sadria whose life has been spent in china, japan and iran; when he came to help unite yunus london networks in 2008 nobody truly partnered with him so he has gone back to iran; the stateslady who most bridges paul's views, mo's views and my dad's views is mary robinson

if people doing stuff out of britain/europe want to know more about youth 10000 i suggest they talk to mostofa and zasheem as alternatives to me

if they want to see more information i put it up messily at (use skype to ask for a guided tour) at http://yunuscity.ning.comwww.yunus10000.com www.erworld.tv www.mandelauni.com http://jobscompetitions.ning.com http://normanmacrae.ning.com  if you have questions about how my family's youth and sustainble economics searches connects with the before and after process of the global summit celebrating what london can do beyond the olympics this summer please make the questions as detailed as possiblechris macrae 1 301 881 1655 skype chrismacraedc facebook linkedin twitter ................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Dear Iqbal

2010s action nets of The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant

I intended The Economist's 1943 centenary bio as a present. It helps map where entrepreneurial economics originated its alumni and leadership. It reveals that historically The Economist was a social action medium designed to question how to entrepreneurially end hunger and champion all youth's productivity, especially youth from poor families.

The Economist founder James Wilson had come down from Scotland and become a Member of Parliament determined to sack those representing vested interests and empiredom. He started The Economist to mediate such public demand. 17 years later, he died of diarrhea in Calcutta trying with his bank (standard chartered - queen victoria's charter to James 1853 ) to reform Raj Economics but his son in law walter bagehot helped royalty to continue revisioning its commonwelath role more peacefully than the french solution to cut off heads of those who monoplised productive assets (where the french meaning of entrepreneur's "between take" originates). Let's hope that yesterday Libya took the best of the french way, but that we can still use the scottish mediation way to liberate bangladesh and others at Arab Spring's crossroads.

As for how we liberate wall street and europe's unemployed youth I tend to think university leaders bear more responsibility on that than they yet know  (except at HEC which Danone's Emmanuel Faber has been working a few decades to help reform). Sam's transition from microcreditsummits to civil society networks is interesting especially if the royal fiamilies who have backed microcredit now turn to question the commons of media and education preferably before London Olympics. Atlanta is an interesting nexus- as centre of 45 georgian colleges brainstorming job creation and the home of the global brand (Coca-Cola) that took the economics of image and sports  too far in wrong direction, but also where Branson emerged his womens school of entreprenurship from and the home of the carpet manufacturer that declared any industry can profitably go zero-carbon if it values this an inter-generational goal.

My dad continiued James Wilson ideology up to The Economist's 145 year in 1988 when he retired mainly to write biography of Von Neuman for Sloan Foundation

Dismally Harvard wrote a 150th year review of The Economist which used top-down erroneous lens destroying all the original microeconomics views of The Economist- perhaps if MIT had done the 150th instead ... 

Norman Macrae Family Founbation wishes to map whose networks most openly connect ending poverty with mobiles. I believe you and Kazi Huque (who I have been chatting to for several years but only met on Monday for first time) need to choose who leads that through 2010s. I would be interested who else you would add to that list - at boston will berners lee and negropronte help?; across china is Jack Ma workable with?  which of those (Ibrahim, Slim etc) who have become worlds richest by setting up mobile phones industry will mobilise their money/legacy the bottom up way (in which telecentres are open and owned by villages) not gates' top down

cheers chris macrae

Further Collaboration Networks Background:

Actually while my father  was a diarist and systemic modeller of future conflicts and opportunities not an action maker - he dreamed back in a 1984 book why the net generation should unite around millennium goal of ending poverty and how internet and mobiles would be integral in vilages to end poverty and understand the most valuable purposes og each life critical market.  He first saw a working internet in 1973 as it was an elearning experiment I was  a junior contributor to as a UK National development project.The Economist's science editor Matt Ridley wrote clearest obit of why my father saw yje elders and youth of the net generation as having defining responsibility for compounding human sustainability as we integrate local and global in 40 short years

http://www.rationaloptimist.com/blog/death-great-optimist 

Dad was happy in his last year to forecast that the openness of world trade around bangladesh's grassroots netwporks was as vital to 2010s as trading with Japan in early 1960s (consider Japan in 1962 being the survey that liberated father to survey almost any future he chose over next 25 years from his viewpoint of what economic maps invests in next generations productivity). At his remembrance party 50 people at The Economist boardroom were surprised to see launch of Consider bangaldesh

I believe that if we start with the right people it is possible to form a club of 100 leaders who want to see 2010s being youths most productive deacde and getting each leader to voice one or two favourite projects and then play a game of snap as who needs who most amongst the 100 and how can networks like your legatum alumni help

If the human race is to navigate transformational maps of the global village economy with youthful joy and entrepreneurial freedom of productivity then we need to know if your capital city has a village like Saint James in
LondonSaint James is dedicated to ending empire: ending everything that spins viciously when people are ruled by top-down vested interests instead of bottom-up community family-context investing culture. Here is how Saint James became London's village for ending empire. Geographically it interfaces the palace village of london, the .gov village of london, and the BBC world service village though the latter often forgets its unique responsibility in questioning what media rules the world. Testimony 1 on BBC. Web 1 of future of beeb.Saint James was the "village" adjacent to that of which English colonizisation and empire began - so its job was to be the village which the countries colonised inside the so-called United Kindgom mediated the end of empire. Here is just part of the timeline: dates are not necessarily correct beyond 3rd decimal1700 English empire takes over scotland1750 Adam Smith starts an alternative discipline to all assets being controlled by few top people ( which was foundation of economics). The urgency of Adam's search for human logic is demonstrated by the fact that over half of Scots had to sail the seven seas between 1700 to 1850 to entrepreneurially survive. It is a matter of familial record that England's accountants imposed a taxation culture that demanded lairds value sheep as worth more each quarter than Scottish peoples. Accidentally the Scots became one of the first nations to be more www networked than geographically landlocked. Something that the productivity of every 21st youth now connects with.Late 18th century: scotland's auld allies the french give birth to the "entrepreneur"; at origin "between take" is prepare to transfer assets by cutting off heads of those who monopolise productive assets preventing peoples form leading productive lives1843 Using the language of let's Social Action Business: Scot James Wilson invites everyone to map out peaceful entrepreneurship and sustainability models of world trade. To do this he becomes a member of parliament with goal of getting 90% of vested interest MPS to resign;  he founds The Economist as the media to get rid of vested interest MPS1860 While trying to reform Raj economics , James dies before his time in Calcutta needing oral rehydration. His son-in-law take up the challenge- within 15 years he has reformed the English Constitution mentoring Queen Victoria's transformation from head of slavemaking empire to centre of commonwealthNonetheless, colonisation by Europe takes another 75 years to die including 2 world wars; (churchill's intelligence was communicated out of st james in ww2) and leaves behind a world of over-government and geo-political dichotomy : communism versus capitalism both of whose extremes become mathematically the same endgame of lose-lose-lose human sustainability. See Einsteain and John von Neumann if you need more maths of that.

The country inheriting the shortest straw from colonisation, Bangladesh innovates the greatest human miracle of our times. In 40 short years the microentrepreneurial networking of the extraordinary people and families and communities of Bangladesh is celebrated in this leaflet which also brings one and two thirds of a century of saint James economics and commonwealth celebrations uptodate. We propose that London's Olympics can unite world youth in celebrating the 10 times more productive knowhow that Bangladeshis are open sourcing round the net generation.

JournalofSocialBusiness.com  You're invited to sustainably update Future History from 2011. Hopefully the BBC , by constitution br\oadcasting most resourced social busiess, will join in activating youth's exciting 2010s too. It can start by understanding the most important project of Mary Robinson's life  - more futures of beeb

 This web unabashedly heroises James, probably the number 1 internationalist scot and entrepreneurial revolutionary of the northern hemispheres. By 1843 James had decided that the future of youth needed 90% of MPs of England's empire booted out of parliament. As well as becoming an MP, he used media to achieve this goal. That's what The Economist's vision was about at least until 1988. James' son-in-law, and second editor, Walter Bagehot changed Queen Victoria's job decription from head of slave-run empire to epicenjtre of commonwealth. That journey arguably reaches its most exciting moments during Lonmdon's Olympics in 2012 if the BBC understands the most exiting news it can generate with youth and cross-cultral world service thru 2010s  - more soon! 

 worldeconomist.net: Over 35 years since my dad published entrepreneurial revolution in The Economist, I have noticed that there is a great danger that professional people  - and academics most notably - forget what stuff is their expert jargon. Although its not up to me, my recommendation will be that the journal of social busienss should encourage a multiplicity of writing styles not just the academic norm

95% of young people -if 2010s is to be exciting - who need to be involved in debate of what microcredit truly does havent got enough framework in mind to even enter the debate (and the same can be said for what yunus means by "social business")

perhaps less than 1% are like us with so much info around us

and quite probably this sort of bbc article below actually published 2 december is where the other 4% start - of course if you think the other 4% start start at some other common text, I am interested in what you think it is

Personally I am comfier asking teachers of young people to re-examine economics from the start rather than the more specific microcredit "brand" because which ever you re-examine is going to be a huge amount of work to get anywhere near a level playing field given the distraced nature of mass media, the top-down bias that all governments have hungover from 20th C geopolitics, and the way young people in developed nations use mobile tech and what I regard as very dismally designed social media. Also I dont think many bankers start from a mindset of way above zero-sum which as per dr yunus last chapter of latest book is the only future worldwide mindset acceptable if net generation is to be exciting, joyful http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html

anyhow this may or may not be relevant to whether youth dilaogues can help save bangladesh's peoples freedom to open source world changung maps in the coming quarter, and so the rest of the 2010s

The history of The Economist http://www.saintjames.tv future shocks a lot of people including its customers. Born in 1843 it was a social action designed to rid big vested interests from London's parliament of superpower, dismantle Empire, and entrepreneurially return job creating assets and sustainble (exponential rising) futures to the people -not just British people as we see from founder James Wilson dying before his time working in Calcutta trying to reform Raj professions and their top-down rule books

My dad http://worldeconomist.net http://globalassembly.tv wrote there for 40 years 1949-1989. In tune with the founding culture of Scot James Wilson, Norman Macrae was a modest man (why should I or anyone want to celebrate me?) but thorougly immodest in raising debates he felt peoples - not goverment or other big systems - needed the freedom (of hi-trust markets) to lead. Late in life he met Dr Muhammad Yunus. By stroke of good timing 1976 was the year that both these trained microeconomists devoted the rest of their lives to entrepreneurial revolution http://erworld.tv What fun their ideas and youth can connect through the 2010s is one of the urgent mapmaking tasks of netgeneration http://www.grameeneconomicslab.com

As Geofrrey Crowther, editor during The Economist's 1943 centenary wrote: It is still possible by social action to create a world of justice, freedom, fraternite and material welfare. In this great caravan, the journal of opinion if it be humble and honest has its place. The Economist has stayed with the caravan for longer than most. It hopes to stay a great while longer..

2008, Valentines Day +1: 1000 people begin a Social Business journey with Dr Yunus : 35 at lunch at the Royal Automobile Club, the remainder at the local church in St James. In paralel we started a virtual book club of 1000 readers- here are some notes for thse interested in catching up to where a new journey starts spring 2010 round the new Yunus1000 bookclub

To sample what has been fast tracked : start where Global Grameen was officially launched  with 100 alumni . This short video plays out of the Volkswagen theme park in Wolfsburg Nov 2009 . Can collaborations worldwide celebrate with Dr Yunus his purpose for global grameen to be everyone's favourite partner in sustainablity? How about deep innovation projects for human progress that rock around the globe and make the 2010s www.202020.tv the most exciting decade to be alive in - -the 1960s were pretty cool for the space race, but the race to end poverty is 100 times more fun once you're @  the games www.yunusolympics.com

 

If you are unsure of the game rules of social busness system design. try out this slide (we welcome views on best ways to clarify what SB is and what it isn't)

 

Mathematically, to study social business system design is to study the most pursposeful organisational systems that can be compounded across generations. Between 1976-2004, Grameen Social Business System designs were primarily about job creation both by the mother of village families and in developing her next generation and so the sustainbailty of local communities.

 

From 2005, Dr Yunus has innovated Global Social Business models -that is partnerships between Grameen as a grassroots network serving life developing needs and some of the world's most resourced organisations such as Danone or Intel Corporations, or HEC university, or increasingly a developed country's youth (France being the lead case). Along with the 1000 bookclub being linked in around BuildingSocialBusiness, we invite you primarily to study the collaborating partnring games that evolve when global social busienss partnershis network around the most vital sustainability goals of the 2010s. These range from:

  •  ending poverty (eg the one in 6 chance that a child born in 2010 will have next to zero chamce to grow up healthily, literate and vocationally skilled for 21st C jobs,  
  • to enjoying co-creation of the first billion jobs that could not have been systemised in history's knowledge-disconnected era.

Dare we suggest that mass media are mistaken when they cover millennium goals as being anything less than uniting participation in what parents wish for all of our childrens futures.

 

But first a bit more grounding from the first 3 decades of Grameen's evolution.  

 

THE BANK THAT WASN'T A BANK

Grameen's birth took 7 years from 4 co-founders start up in 1976 to Bangladesh constitution in a 1983 law of a bank owned by the poorest. Right from the start Grameen was designed to be the developing world's greatest job creation network integrating poorest people's bank, markets owned by communities of 60 villagers and knowledge hubs. And the sustainability (16 decision) investment criteria that members elected became a sprinboard to connect more and more of "the dots" illustrated as community productivity compounded.



Entrepreneurial system mapmakers believe the 2010s are the most exiciting decade because this time will uniquely be that where citizens around the world question collaboration partnering (CP) as the new source of innovation and national advantage - more than that sustainability exponentials for future human generation will be won or lost. Interested? Help us focus each years's greatest challenge rsvp if you vote for a different one (rsvp info @worldcitizen.tv to nominate a CP boardgame or to join our sponsors : 9 year olds, 12 year olds ....

  • 2010 grow citizen debates through decade on how to create billion jobs with mobile and web's tech revolutions
  • 2011 can our global village age design a micro union of nations whose whole truth is that sustaned growth of all their economies depend on collaborating with each other as well as not excluding any nation that newly gets microeconomics collaborative empowerment;
  • 2012 can londoners smarten up the globalisation's mass media photo call of being olympics game hosts and change the bbc to be a citiznen owned social business public broadcaster whose greatest world service is open curiositiy in investigating sustanability agendas -where is social business's first anchor woman and will she get as much freedom of voice as macroeconomics news analysts

In 2010 YunusBook Club1000 intends to host its main party in Saint James as we did in Feb 2008 to celebrate James Wilson's founding 1843 vision of The Economist. Economics  editors have no true purpose in global media -and cannot free global market sectors to value sustainability's exponenentials - unless they are openly and constantly questioned by social business correspondents.

Extract from launch prospectus of The Economist, 1843

We have made such arrangements and under such superintendence, as will secure the accomplishment of all that we propose, in a way which we trust will render our objects and exertions useful to the country: we have no party or class interests or motives; we are of no class, or rather of every class: we are of the landowning class: we are of the commercial class interested in our colonies, in our foreign trade, and in our manufactures: but our opinions are that not one part of these can have any lasting and true success that is not associated and co-existing with the prosperity of all.


And lastly—if we required higher motives than bare utility, to induce that zeal, labour, and perseverance against all the difficulties which we shall have to encounter in this work—we have them. If we look abroad, we see within the range of our commercial intercourse whole islands and continents, on which the light of civilization has scarce yet dawned; and we seriously believe that FREE TRADE, free intercourse, will do more than any other visible agent to extend civilization and morality throughout the world—yes, to extinguish slavery itself. Then, if we look around us at home, we see ignorance, depravity, immorality, irreligion, abounding to an extent disgraceful to a civilized country; and we feel assured that there is little chance of successfully treating this great national disease while want and pauperism so much abound: we can little hope to improve the mental and moral condition of a people while their physical state is so deplorable:—personal experience has shown us in the manufacturing districts that the people want no acts of parliament to coerce education or induce moral improvement when they are in physical comfort—and that, when men are depressed with want and hunger, and agonized by the sufferings of helpless and starving children, no acts of parliament are of the slightest avail. We look far beyond the power of acts of parliament, or even of the efforts of the philanthropist or the charitable, however praiseworthy, to effect a cure for this great national leprosy; we look mainly to an improvement in the condition of the people. And we hope to see the day when it will be as difficult to understand how an act of parliament could have been made to restrict the food and employment of the people, as it is now to conceive how the mild, inoffensive spirit of Christianity could ever have been conceived into the plea of persecution and martyrdom, or how poor old wrinkled women, with a little eccentricity, were burned by

    1 anyone in london developing a barua campaign - eg how to get it shown to virgin planet or nick stern or indeed who are the top 10 influencers in the uk -why doesnt prince charles pick up the video go down to his mothers concert hall and say it should be permanently on display, and what happened to photosyntesis exhibition http://saintjames.tv/

    ...1a has taddy blecher green peer to peers been http://futuresunited.com/ yet -why not send him olasofia video of brixtonhive rtesponses to seeing 100000 green jobs are possible by 2012

    2 august's here:  are you starting wikipedia job,  marriage or what?

    2a what's the tav follow up to kissing lamiya in yunus office - you've set a standard for cheek you beter exponentialise

    3 how about celebrating with a photographic exhibition at the tate or at least squat on The Economist's sculpture square - when did photos of sofia mobbed by village kids go

    3a have alan and sofia followed up on best place on eartnh scoops reporting - and how does that relate to expoentials slide 2- and the 4 year long story launched in delhi 2004 with chief guest minister of ict and broadcasting that we are in the midst of wars betwen goodwill and badwill networks and by 2012 the games will be over

    3b who's going over to paris to video the female matchmaker who connected yunus and danone in the first place- has sofia emailed her and set up the appointment at HEC yet; whoise trust mapping social busienss finds across europe with chris person; whose telling veolia's story of 1000 time cheaper water than any privitization -why not print 10000 postcards of that (what's the image of arsenic-free water on pipe) and send first one to maggie, secnd to obama , 3rd to clinton, ...?

    4 what else is really big enough to be worth celebrating the videos we got from dhaka- do you want to hire the friends house for an evening and do colaboration 1000 as a launch for a 100 person monthly eet at happy computer (the old fats comany)  poverty meets hunger meets whatever is the next big issue tony manwaring is forcing for good

    dont waste a second on small ideas -  when you work with the world's biggest brand -the only one whose partners can save the human race http://brand.blogspot.com/ http://yunuspartners.com/  think the most outrageous optimistic celebration you'd ever like to host and give us part of the script and lets put it on yunus' desk

    get over this risk aversion, and never trying anything less than perfect execution,  and find your optimist flow

    the great think about being marketer is that 9 out of 10 concepts failing is a very good batting average but dont waste time on small ones when playing with the brand humanit most wants ti celebrate with they'll have even less chnace than big ones

    maybe we should get alan sugar to host a special edition of yunus apprentice -let's fix up a meet with m,ark burnett and see if he's up for the erality tv game dad forecast some tv producer would die for right now http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html

    Hi People


    Mostofa - could you and Martin make a visit some time to one of the dhaka bookshops with the 20 or so books on microcredit published in english - and get 5 copies of banker of the poor


    I am interested if our Yunus birthday week club can go back to 1997 when the first microcreditsummit was launched -this happens very near the end of the book (eg end of chapter 39) with the yes we can poverty museum speech that dr yunus made in 1997 at the microcredisummit reproduced. Its worth reading how yes we can was yunus language in 1997, as was the invitation to make poverty museum the space race that united the networking generation.


    It is both extraordinary to understand what sam daley harris , dr yunus , john hatch , queen sofia, a few people have every year led with microcreditsummit and also all the organisations that were founded around them in 1997 which have since wandered off course of which the world bank's CGAP is for me an example but accion the worst, calvert fund ugly- all these folk who design microfinance around foreign shareholders seem to me as a mathematician to turn a system away from what made it heroic and sustainable and worth celebrating.  


    There's an issue about open sourcing a beauiful and hi-trust human system like microcredit which now multiplies through every other application of genuine social business modelling that youth ambassadors 5000 need to be the protectors of. Let's debate that once you have read the book's chapter 39 and, and if there is anyone here not coming to dhaka but happy to make a virtual bookclub debate of this please say so 


    5 stars of Youth Ambassador 5000 -

    Keynes: The world is ruled by little else than the gradual encroachment of economic ideas

    There's also another burning issue- in recent speeches yunus has been quite confident about calling this the greatest crisis year ever - one where we are the crossroads of going back to the old normalcy of wall street or finally going beyond colonial top-down economics - a macroeconomics system which back in 1843 The Economist was founded to dismantle without success. The scot who founded The Economist died before his time 1863? in Calcutta 10 months into trying to reform British raj economics -the killer disease one that BRAC now cures at 10 cents a go. As Keynes is quoted above in a book of my father's that I gave dr yunus last time we met the world is ruled by economics


    long before the baliouts,  economics in our era of globalisation died unless you are intent on studying how to make things 10 times less economical - so just like dr yunus has already proposed that one of the star ratings of 5000 youth amabassadors he most needs to network with comes from having had a life changing experience with microcredit in bangladesh or certified true replication, it seems another STAR needs be those young people who are able to take keynes proposition that economics is the only thing that rules us as the starting point of every conversation or action learning they host in the name of mictrocredit clubs  


    I have been doing a sample survey of shareholders of The Economist since 2005 -its quite interesting to see who thought economics died when

    St James YouTube with Dr Yunus

     

    I am writing to you as celebrator of the Dr Yunus St James Lunch feb 15

     

    We have youtube videomakers over in Dhaka for the first 2 weeks of July – so we invite a competition of questions alumni of the St James lunch most want to ask

     

    Assuming they are simple questions to briefly list, it is 90% likely we will be able to show Dr Yunus the questions so he can choose which pattern together something that is now useful to debate from a 2 minute first cut

     

    Alan Mitchell, friends and I have been asking my father what questions interest him. Since his published curiosity about the future of the net is 25 years strong and about microeconomics from the Bangladeshi perspective 65 years long (he learnt economics in Bangladesh from an Indian correspondence course whilst waiting to navigate RAF planes in RAF) I have put his main questions up at http://saintjames.tv

     

    They do touch on 3 areas:

     

    HUMANITY’S NATION

    1 How do we help communicate or educate the Bangladeshi brand architecture reality that over 100000 community service networkers (including 25000 at BRAC, Grameen Bank and Grameen Mobile many more from ASA and so on) have been experimenting with social business models for 30 years now (as well as open sourcing worldwide in the case of microcredit)- dad was pretty much heartbroken that it has not been obvious to many book reviewers and economists that social business is not some new idea but as Bill Clinton http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jB1tSDXbOzg  says in this video 30 years in the system-proving of how everyone does development economics.

     

    MAPPING COMPOUND ECONOMICS

    2 What global market sectors could exponential economics mapping do a more inclusive job of debating future history’s compound risks ahead of time  (this an issue we are in midst of our 3rd annual survey of shareholders of The Economist on)

     

    UK’S NUMBER 1 WWW SOCIAL (Community-Rising) RESPONSIBILITY

    3 Is the UK’s number 1 Business against poverty gift to future capitalism reforming public sector broadcast sector or something else. http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html

     

    I have absolutely no wish to be involved in deciding which questions get videoed this time round. I will publish all I receive. However if you have a question (that may need to be refined by iteration) the priority circulation list to send them to are mostofa who is already in dhaka, mark our videomaker who will be going over in a week and alexis who mentors me on youth/womens issues that obviously people like dad and I are the wrong demographic to explore

     

    On topics 1 and 2 i believe that Alan Mitchell will have a draft ready of the microeconomist and goodwill auditing mapping book 7 years in the writing. If that interests you, kindly ask him to send you the draft. (see also http://journalistsforhumanity.com )

     

    Collaboration Village webs round london twinned with humanity’s most critical issues

     

    At the stjames.tv cost of $50 nor less, we would happily sponsor anyone who wants to twin a london village network with one of the bottom billion worldwide issues. RSVP to me on that one.
