Until 2012 DC one of globalisation's worst fulure capital pf post 2015 millennials. Then:

 

Leading health servant Jim Kim becomes World Bank leader and:

  • #2030now - millennials are world's most connected educated -post 2015 invest in their goals
  • social movement of value chain transformation - case of health, energy
  • link with Pope and other movements of public/national leaders of ACT - accountability, collaboration, transparency

*Feed the future partnerships- big data mobilised as app so Cambodia small farmers can triple exports; search for parallel best for continent case

*Map twin capital connections of millennial by region or practice - eg Atlanta Nov 2015 Yunus and Nobel Laureate Summit with Carter, King and Turner family 

 

 

Yunus- 100/1 leaders of 2010s -youth's most productive generation - Norman Macrae Family Foundation www.y100club.com

FREEMARKET Role - MILLENNIUM GOALS ACTION LEADER

What would world miss without Yunus

Yunus is globally most recognised as number 1 pro-youth economist and innovator of the most purposeful goals peoples can invest in. Yunus has noticed that western economists excluded society's most vital demands from every performance measure they compute- a very serious error given Keynes finding that increasing the world is ruled only by economics (ie nations and so youth's future sustainability doesn't exist separately from what global economics rules)

Historically Yunus' greatest innovations include:

Creating investment banks around 8 million of the world's poorest village mothers

Making their number 1 investment the ending of digital divides with everything that can be mobilised across 100000 village hubs of microentrepreneurs;

It turns out that the best banks for ending poverty are also the best banks for youth job creation everywhere

Helping Bangladesh youth be a leader in mobile technology's most purposeful uses, and sharing Asia's greatest sustainability solutions every community needs to freely replicate

What youth collaboration challenges is Yunus centre of

After 20 of my own interviews with dr Yunus (and another 20 by people sponsored by NM foundation as we circulated Yunus 2000 bookclub and 10000 dvd club) I have compiled a top 50 challenges that Yunus is looking for particular citizens and youth to originate and then share. He also wants a share in all the value this created to be invested back in his 8 million village mothers next entrepreneurial revolutions

The right hand column shows Norman Macrae foundations next collaboration actions around Yunus top 50chalenges. We compile ideas on what different cities could help Yunus lead at http://yunuscity.ning.com we welcome correspondence if you have ideas on how to help Yunus as one of top 100 leaders connecting net generation as the most productive time for youth to be alive

Please note at least 2 more of NM top 100 are Bangladeshi. However due to hostile politics we don't currently publish their goals.

Also please note more detailed cases are published in Journal of Social Business whose launch with 3000 leaders of Dr Yunus choice we committed to within 3 months of Norman's parting as our family's main commitment at Yunus weekend Scotland 4 July 2010

Butler-Sloss - 100/2 leaders of 2010s -youth's most productive generation

FREEMARKET Role - Philanthropic Knowledge Network Leader

What would world miss without Butler-Sloss http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzEajBQ9gmQ

Connecting the passionate field innovators of solar (eg williams worldwide, bunker roy india, wallis out of OZ) with community financing systems ( eg members owned microcredits) with opinion leaders (royalty, bbc broadcasters nature) needed to revolutionise sustainability infrastructures with youth media (eg green student entrepeneur competitions)

Butler-Sloss leads the Oscars http://ashden.org for microenergy and microgreen networking. She brings her family's resources and trust which are second to none among pro-youth foundations in UK and offer cross-cultural collaboration authority worldwide.

Next collaboration challenges

Green needs to linkin collaboration youth and leadership movements to reform 20th C economics so that sustainability is costed into pricing decisions being made. Worldwide partners (eg out of Japan whose green needs are most urgent among wealthiest nations) are needed with those prepared for the conflicts of helping peoples revolutionaise social infrastructures. Particularly those below concerning solar entrepreneurial revolution

By any pro-youth logic, solar energy is the most economic form of energy wherever there is sun.

Macreconomic mindsets currently ruling the world use 2 main ways to block this whole truth:

1 market pricings of energy are biassed towards forms of energy that are stealing from sustainability of our future generations

2 any energy needs a huge distribution infrastructure and none of these old energy infrastructures prioritises future sustainability over current profiteering

Norman Macrae Foundation

Work below the radar in connecting the various jewels in sustainability's crown. Out of UK these could be Ashden, and BBC. Constitutionally across europe they integrate Royal Hunt of the Sun.

Researching what are other nations/regions similarly collaborative jewels in sustaining youth and global village communities everywhere.

Continuing our netgen search since 1984 of 3 billion new jobs (billion green; billion tech; billion community) Hosting Norman Macrae remembrance parties wherever hi-level connections need celebrating in ways that the world's 10000 most collaborative youth can help generate. http://charter.ning.com and http://grameengreen.com


George Soros Family - 100/3 leaders of 2010s -youth's most productive generation

FREEMARKET Role - Reformed Speculator Pro-Youth Economist

What would world miss without George Soros?

George Soros has been amongst the most pro-active in suggesting what to do with Euro and Wall Street if macroeconomics is not to destroy youth's futures

If we are going to help make the net generation be worldwide youth's most productive time, we can't cut off funding from some youth just because they live in a country whose elders messed up or were manipulated. Especially as we are living in unique time where collaboration models can increase human wealth and health by 10-fold compared with scarcity economic models of consuming up things.

Soros knows how currencies have been perfect gables for specualtirs in the past and what to chnage so that they stop continuing to be speculator heaven and youth hell

Next collaboration challenges

We need a lot more youth and journalists to be trained in analysing wherever countries are debt-ridden , who profited from it. Then viralising chapter and verse across youth twitter networks

Alex Soros http://www.alexandersorosfoundation.org/ convenes opinion-leaders events out of new york and there could be a lot of synergies with the events monica yunus www.singforhope.org hosts in identifying superstars who want to give bank to job creating community

Norman Macrae Foundation next steps

Nick Hughes - 100/4  leaders of 2010s -youth's most productive generation

FREEMARKET  Role - Engineered The Number 1 App Freeing productivity of Net Generation?

 

What would world miss without Nick Hughes?

 

Nick engineered the first successful mobile cashless financial service - mpesa (kenya). It may yet be on the "APP" of cashless banking that freedom of net generation productivity turns because it rewards:

 

What's interesting is that cashless banking is big enough for an association of over 100 national regulators to be benchmarking what works where and what doesn't

Next collaboration challenges

 

Entrepreneurial revolutionaries can gain from watching all of nick's next projects - eg cashless loans for solar in kenya is starting up - also by watching how other mobile innovators including the Quadir family who first commercialised village phones are taking on mobile banking projects

 

Norman Macrae Foundation next steps

 

http://innovations.ning.com Join our readership club of MIT issue 4 2011 innovations on financial inclusion - the most uptodate single source knowledge of where mobile banking's entrepreneurial revolutions are blossoming

 

We'd like to see 5th grade teaching on currency included in alfatoun's 90 country program on financial literacy. We need to get to a world where never again can the double folly of the euro ( letting a few bad bankers and top-down politicians put a nation's youth in permanent debt with no warning signals separated currencies offer). For more technical debates on why people need to take back currencies see norman's review of the first 100 hobarts of the Institute of Economic Affairs. http://www.worldeconomist.net/2010.09.01_arch.html#1284173468667

 


Mo Ibrahim - 100/5  leaders of 2010s -youth's most productive generation

FREEMARKET  Role - Philanthropist of African Transparency

 

What would world miss without Mo Ibrahim?

 

The Mo Ibrahim Foundation offers the largest annual prize - awarded when transparent African leaders retire from national presidency

 

Mo made his money from mobile phone networks in Africa so has unique network connections for judging African leaders. Transparency has never been so vital with so much change mobilising around Africa. Precisely because mobile media can entrepreneurially empower so much bottom-up freedoms, they are also at risk of being closed down by those who power over badwill networks

 

Next collaboration challenges

 

Inspired by Ibrahim a former colleague of Mo Ibrahim is co-founder of www.africa24tv.com which aims to tell the good news stories of hi-trust leaders - both national and leaders who want to help make the content self-sufficient in particular industry sectors.

   

Norman Macrae Foundation next steps

 

Africa24tv being headquartered in Paris uses a similar mechanism The Economist used to host out of London. Any passing leader is welcome to come in for a luncheon and chat on or off record as they choose. We hope to host a Norman Macrae Remembrance party celebrating Africa24 -ts good news service is something we wish the BBC would learn from www.futureofbbc.com We aim to do this during the week Paris hosts its annual 3000 person millennium goals summit www.convergences2015.org

   

 

 


Ingrid Munro - 100/6  leaders of 2010s -youth's most productive generation

FREEMARKET  Role - Investment banker for slum families and youth

 

What would world miss without Ingrid Munro?

 

It wasn't obvious that the community trust that Bangladeshi microcredit is built on can be extended to urban slum contexts and youth including a large population of orphans. But Ingrid Munro's team proved it can be at www.jamiibora.org  

 

She did a lot more too.

Starting in 1999 it was possible to:

Digitalise all the record keeping of the bank's savings and loans

 

Develop the most affordable health insurance policy

 

Invest in an ecovillage (Kaputei) largely built by members, which also shows that world class microcredit doesnt only involve financing small businesses

  

Invite youth to take responsibility for regenerating society including rebuilding the market in Kenya's largest slum after it was destroyed in riots that enveloped Kenya after a row between its leading politicians

Next collaboration challenges

 

Queen Sofia of Spain  -the most consistent european royal to campaign for millennium goals by and for the peoples, and with deep concerns for her own peoples productive futures (Spain/Greece) - wants 50 southern hemisphere countries with need to end slums to benchmark the jamii bora model

 

Meanwhile Ingrid's challenge is to keep Jamii Bora on its Moore's Law of doubling membership every 2 years. During this stage of exponential expansion. finding the right sources of funding remain absolutely critical

 

21st C Africa has some of the greatest youth entrepreneur  opportunities in the world provided beyond aid investments that Obama's revolution in USAID has been calling for are designed the community sustaining way round

  

Norman Macrae Foundation next steps

 

Having arranged for a 4-year free loan to Jamii Bora we look for people who truly want to help Ingrid team's while learning how unique culture of youth responsibility empowers

 

Kenya. S. Africa and Ghana-Nigeria re three of the countries where there is a mass of youth entrepreneur networks and pan-African sector leadership that make us believe that Africa's time has come if people of goodwill and mediators of transparency can make sure that optimal community-led franchises like Jamii Bora are celebrated first

   
 

Ory Okolloh - 100/7 leaders of 2010s -youth's most productive generation

FREEMARKET  Role - One of Africa's Greatest Net Entrepreneur Connectors

 

What would world miss without Ory Okolloh?

 

It is not clear that Kenya would have sustained its position as regional silicon valley by and for Africans without Ory. Her leadership of Ushahidi and crowdmapping came at the right time

 

Before there the Arab Spring' start in Tunisia there were civil and political troubles in Kenya. And it was crowdmapping not twitter nor facebook that was the main indigenous communications system that the people used to reconcile the troubles. Today Ushahidi is a leading export service of Kenya and the IHUB model of a collaboration space for hi-tech youth entrepreneurs has many capital cities trying to emulate it.

 

Next collaboration challenges

 

Ory has moved to be policy manager for google in Africa and to work out of their Johannesburg office. However the connections of what's buzzing between youth entrepreneurs in S.Africa and those of Kenya suggest another timely move by one of the most trusted leaders -and mediators- of her generation.

  

Norman Macrae Foundation next steps

 

Our foundation's goal of demonstrating that 5000 collaboration youth of the net generation can be selected to build global village economies faster than any 5000 zero-sum big bankers' traders can externalise relies on strong twin city and triad structures. We are hoping nairobi and joburg will prove to be one such twin capitals

   
  

Taddy Blecher- 100/8 leaders of 2010s -youth's most productive generation

FREEMARKET  Role - Most connected practitioner of free universities predicted to be the largest export economy of African continent in 2010s

 

What would world miss without Taddy Blecher?

 

The marvelous entrepreneurial idea that university staff can help youth create jobs . Moreover, a nation's investment in education designed round youth entreprenurs leads the way to post-industrial win-win-win models and ten times more productive youth the world over

www.taddyblecher.com

 

Early Mandela and Branson partners linking in round freeing university education for job creating students include:

Google Africa

Kiva worldwide

Next collaboration challenges

 

Help the world debate what revolutionary peer to peer curricula free universities innovate

 

Ensure the most practical connections between the world's most resourced universities offering open educational resources and the free universities that started with the least resources but the most urgent social labs and passionately inspiring youth

Norman Macrae Foundation next steps

 

Our foundation's goal of demonstrating that 5000 collaboration youth of the net generation can be selected to build global village economies faster than any 5000 zero-sum big bankers' traders can externalise relies on strong twin city and triad structures. We are planning nairobi and joburg as one such twin capitals for celebrating youthful collaboration entrepreneurs and welcome information sharing with pan-african good news journalists such as www.africa24tv.com  

   
  

Nelson Mandela - 100/9 leaders of 2010s -youth's most productive generation

FREEMARKET  Role - Youth's sustainability depends of the world's most trusted statesmen more than ever

 

What would world miss without Nelson Mandela?

  

Throughout human history times of great communications change pose huge opportunities and huge risks. Previous eras are dwarfed by today's changes as the most exciting time to be alive

 

As we explore how much pro-youth value Mandela is linked into (however indirectly), Einstein's review of his peer Mahatma Gandhi is important to learn from:

Gandhi invented a completely new and humane means for the liberation war of an oppressed country, and practised it with greatest energy and devotion. The moral influence he had on the consciously thinking human being of the entire civilized world will probably be much more lasting than it seems in our time with its overestimation of brutal violent forces. Because lasting will only be the work of such statesmen who wake up and strengthen the moral power of their people through their example and educational works.  Source Einstein Archive, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Next collaboration challenges

 

Currently the most exciting changes to job-creating education in USA are coming from collaboration between over 100 historically black universities who retain the Martin Luther King yes we can change culture http://jobscompetitions.ning.com  

 

Connecting african youth entrepreneurs all over the world becomes the most important diaspora investment opportunity as well as USA's best chance of getting back to sustainability models of economics and community integrity.

 

Norman Macrae Foundation next steps

 

We search for every opportunity to encourage twinning with Johannesburg youth collaboration entrepreneurs wherever Norman Macrae Foundation helps sponsor student jobs competitions across US capital cities. The two biggest steps forward during academic year 2012-2013 involving what goodwill economics can be linked in round youth in DC and Atlanta

    
 

What Everybody Needs to Know First About Economics

We are shocked how few people know of the main findings of the renowned economist Maynard Keynes- increasingly only economics riles the world and the greatest risk to the future working lives of our children comes from elderly macroeconomists who hire themselves out to the biggest who want to get bigger.



Historically when faulty systems of macroeconomists ruined civilisations they fell one by one. But Einstein took Keynes logic further and hypothesised that the first generation to become more connected than separated by technology would be subject to a final exam. Now if we let erroneous macroeconomists rule whole continents of nations will collapse.



By 1976 my father (Norman macrae) -probably the last student of economics mentored by Keynes- was writing at The Economist why the next half century would see the net generation tested - he called upon the genre of Entrepreneurial Revolution (ER) networkers to sort out the greatest innovation challenge economics - and so the human race - will ever face .

The opportunity of 10 times more productivity for the net generation (with million times more collaboration technology than man's 1960's race to moon)

.The THREAT is preventing the threat of collapsing continent-wide system of value exchange. By 2020 the (exponential track impacting future) sustainanbilyty of every village around the globe will likely be lost or won

..logo3responsibility.jpg...How could we be experiencing record youth unemployent when we are living in a time of a million times more collaboration tech than a generation ago? According to research by Entrepreneur networks started at The Economist in 1976, we are 36 years off track in compounding 2 unustainable systems whose follies multiply each other

Goodwill Economics

Join in making 2010s Youth’s Most Productive Decade

 

Big Hairy Audacious Goals matter , so do forbidden questions. I grew up in the 1960s. Humanity raced to the moon because the goal was set. Today we have many millions times more powerful collaboration technology- the goal of making 2010s youth’s most productive decade is easy to achieve. But we would need to change measurements, media , and any constitutions that currently forbid our children from joining in to being the most entrepreneurially productive their lives can be.

 

All round the world the nightly news is dominated by politicians debating economics. But the all but forbidden issue is the one that Keynes tutored his final students including my father on. Increasingly only economics rules the world so swear a Hippocratic oath to that responsibility- make sure that the economics you build multiplies goodwill and energises human beings most productive purposes. By 1949 dad (also known as the Economist’s Unnacknowledge Giant) started 40 years of diarizing which economists did and didn’t live up to Keynes oath. And he storytold this wherever possible by celebrating the stories of those entrepreneurs who were make more jobs than they take.

 

While my father’s writings coined about 20 catch-phrases including telecommuting and death of distance two which I helped him storytell as my first job involved elearning networks in the early 1970s, much the most fun of his catchphrases was entrepreneurial revolution. Father became engaged increasingly in a war with macroeconomics whom he saw as building disgraceful political chicanery not goodwill economics. He liked to chuckle however many of Adam Smith’s precepts macroeconomics pollute to their own mindsets, they will make fools of themselves if they try to take over the meaning of entrepreneur. The French between take refers to transferring assets back to society’s most audacious goals by being prepared to guillotine the heads of those who are monopolising productive assets as the French royals were in the late 1700s.

 

As a statistician I could write a book on the sorts of hi-trust measurements I would like my child’s life to be productively governed by. But I started trying to raise such debates with what were the Big 5 accountants in 1989 and only got sacked from the one I was working with. I then worked with the largest advertising agency as I have spent my life researching media and I knew that what I valued most in community sustainability the global metrics professions were increasingly misvaluing. Unlike the accountants the ad agencies didn’t sack me. They welcomed the frameworks I provided but then applied them 180 degrees the wrong way round.

 

So here’s a different approach. I invite you to join in playing with 2 gameboards that I find simple enough to play this search game. Identify 100 people who most want to make 2010s youth’s most productive decade. If you agree with this goal why not play the same game and then we can swap notes on who’s who. I will also share my diaries on who and why I invite people, and how and why they help lead the yclub100.com

YCLUB 100 LEADERS INVESTING MOST IN NET GENERATION PRODUCTIVITY THROUGH 2010s

Yclub100.com tel 1-301 881 1655 email chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk 

Dear

 

I was touched by your pro-women leadership speech at Clinton Global and invite you to join  YCLUB of 100 leaders investing most in women and youth’s productivity through the 2010s.

 

I have enjoyed the good fortune in life to have known the 2 greatest pro-youth economists of our generation – my father Norman Macrae worked  through last half of 20th Century on Entrepreneurial Revolution (ER) and net generation challenges (he was first journalist of internet in his 1984 book on next 40 years unprecedented compound opportunities and risks). Before father’s death last year he organized that his remembrance party to debate at The Economist Boardroom why a microeconomist like Muhammad Yunus stands up for places whose economies empower productivity of women and youth in ways that prevailing western macroeconomics fails to begin to value or exponentially grow.

 

With some support from The Economist Intelligence Unit, and similar networks I have worked on conflict-resolution based innovation projects over the last 30 years. It is not the intention of Norman Macrae YCLUB100 to embarrass any of it leaders or their PR. Rather we seek to structure mutual benchmarking space to see what works as many leaders simultaneously have a long way to go through the 2010s if we are to get economics and media back to being integral to the solution of sustainable community and youth’s productivity instead of spinning the collapse of these keys to any place’s development

 

One of the puzzles father and I have spent a lot of time exploring partial solutions was set by Von Neumann whose biography we wrote for Sloan Foundation. How are organizational structures to be designed when leaders are in the middle of 50 or more exciting projects, and computers can speed up innovation searches 1000 fold? We promise not to take up much time of top 100 members mainly needing them to assign a representative who knows what multi-win purpose interconnects through your leadership of 50 most urgent projects. However, we will work to design relationship protocols so that leaders working on parallel contextual challenges have best opportunities to meet and partner ahead of time. For example, Yunus has authorised me to host a technology partners roundtable with him at the same time as his speech (GrameenEconomics.com) to US congress on credit being the lifeblood of every nation, and with recent events in UK there is royal demand for a brainstrust on media and community to be timed both pre- and post- The London Olympics

 

There is no charge for the first 100 leaders to join the club though they do work out how to co-fund any joint benchmarking processes or forums they elect in advancing job creation and sustainability of our children everywhere. An early communal puzzle of Club100 is overleaf.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Chris Macrae

celebrating Taddy Blecher in London -March 26

We would love to see a colleague from Mo Ibrahim Foundation join this party. Also if it would be useful to identify whether there is a joint celebration we could make as part of this series, I would welcome that opportunity. The Taddy Blecher case not only demonstrates how much of a rising exponential African youth productivity can be on but how much we in Europe need to go and action learn from celebrating best cases in Africa. I was briefed on some fabulous possibilities by leaders of www.afica24.tv in Paris and want to help celebrate the good news

 Our club of 100 leaders believes 2010s can be youth's most exciting decade. My father Norman Macrae projected this future over 40 years of writing at The Economist- investing in next generation's productivity out of every community was the pursose of economics that he used in every investigative journalism including 3000 leaders and over 30 surveys for The Economist - view their history here.

Dad helped form clubs interested in optimistic entrpreneurial revolution futures. ER was his number 1 catch phrase and his most exciting wish involved mobilising the new media round the internet to end poveerty which he first made into a book in 1984.

Economics compounds opportunities and risks expoenentially Dad was well aware that the orwellian opposite future could spin round the first net generation- making 2010s the most exciting decade to determine human futures worldwide. Indeed as one of the last students tutored by Keynes he swore Keynes Hippocratic Oath- as economics increasingly rules the world lets action good news futures with the way we mediate curious questions as well as out maths models/maps design how man-made systems value integration of sustainable and growing futures for all future generations
 Here are some of the leaders we admire

Kenya's Ingrid Munro - founded happy families bank so youth's mobile productivity can rebuild Kenya - one of Africa's countries on a rising exponential. People who have certified Ingrid's great work include Queen Sofia of Spain for 15 years royalty's number 1 champion of truly economic banks for the poor

Other exciting investors in youth's productivity in Africa include:
Peter Ryan MicroloanFoundation (Malawi) with African Regional partnership of John Mackey's WholePlanetFoundation

Taddy Blecher (Free Univesrities including first test space of Branson Entrepreneur curricula)  S. Africa

Ory head of google africa (s.africa) formerly founder of crowdmap kenya

Mo Ibrahim - foundation for rewarding most transparent leaders, originally founder of mobile phone company Celnet

Alumni of Nelson Mandela, and Ubuntu Community Building methods. Other extraordinary innovations are M-PESA (digital money) and way Sir Fazle Abed's BRAC has transferred its Bangladeshi magic to various African countries

In memoriam: Nobel Wangari Maathai networker of green movements across Africa
Discuss at http://normanmacrae.ning.com/forum/topics/africa-and-norman-macrae

some more education leaders:
usa: will clement and prof bhuiyan - since 2000, developed course on entrepreneurship for over 100 of us poorest colleges; now organising pan-state 1000youth job creation competitions with business leaders like these- discuss where to stage this next

gandhi family lucknow schooling system www.cmseducation.org  nurturing 40000 children as world citizens annually

new zealand is turning into children into journalits and its teachers as expert witnesses; annual competetion of what next $100 billion market does world need that new zealand youth can best innovate; 10 million chinsese parnets also studying this type of schooling

Microcredit Client Spotlight: Malawi
 
 
It is estimated that only 8% of Malawians connect to a national grid, indicating that alternative energy sources like solar are extremely important. Imagine being totally constrained by nature to read or to undertake certain critical tasks, just because it is after 6 p.m. This is the reality for many women and their families in Africa, with their only source of light being dangerous and expensive kerosene lamps and candles. Enter clean, safe and reliable solar energy. MicroLoan Foundation, Whole Planet Foundation's implementing partner in Malawi, trains and mentors women so they can successfully market and service solar energy products (specifically designed for remote rural settings), as well as manage the stock effectively. Microcredit client Veronica, pictured above, set up her solar business out of her home because her tea shop was failing to generate sufficient income. She is making a huge amount of additional money by renting out fully charged LED lamps each evening to members of the public and charging people’s mobile phones. Veronica has pre-orders for this service for the next month, and a local school already wants to purchase her entire next stock of solar packs. Through the microcredit loan she received, Veronica will have the opportunity to lift herself and her family out of poverty. Learn more about microcredit clients.
 

Partner Spotlight: MicroLoan Foundation
 
 
The MicroLoan Foundation's mission is to significantly reduce poverty and inequality in rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa through small loans, specialized business training and ongoing personal mentoring.  The Foundation also provides saving and financial planning to women who are completely excluded from financial services, the formal economy or employment. Through these services, the microcredit clients develop small businesses that generate profits, furnish their families’ needs and enable them to secure lasting independence from charity. MicroLoan Foundation believes it is a leading example in socially-driven non-profit microfinance. It has a ground-breaking Social Performance Management program that enables the organization to maximize the social and financial outcomes for clients and ensure it actively maintains its mission to help the poorest people.

Hi

 

I will be in Atlanta saturday evening through monday afternoon as a minor sponsor of the 1200 student social business compettion

after everything that has happened these last 12 months (and my 5 most recent visits to dhaka) it seems that we are at a crossroads as to how every knowledge-action network of yunus goes forward; love to swap ideas; additionally the journal of social business (sponsored in memory of my father and job creating economics which first 145 years of The Economist stood for) will publish special issue handed out to the 2000 delegates attending the last microcreditsummit in the 15 year series hosted by my friend sam daley-harris; and my family has been sponsoring some vip gtrips mrs begum has been making to education entrepreneurs


SEARCHES FOR WHO WANTS 2010s be youths most productive decade out of every community

 MIT particulary its open course ware is a jewel in the crown of open extremely affordable innovation so I am commuting monthly from DC to interview MIT people), (always looking to understand who else wants to see )

 

What is most sustainable advice to give friends of noble laureate muhammad yunus?

 

 My 3 main strands (I wish I better understood others are):

 

1 land the knowledge network of any favorite project outside of dhaka - I wish he would plant eg 5 great residence centres - paris being main working example where partners colaborate, 100 mn dollars of funds are mobilised, and probably 100000 youth have got excited about interacting microentrepreneurship; it could have been so easy to help everyone converge on Kenya as Africa's great lab for youth microentrepreneurship http://socialbusiness.crowdmap.com


2 while bangladesh is closed as your partner laboratory accept Jack Ma's (and any other tech partners) invitation to build chinese fieldwork experiments and relationships, but elicit promise from SB partners that whatever they innovate there they will bring to bangladesh once its free again (bangaldesh being the sustainability partners' solutions trader in a trading triad of Bangaldeh , China and India used 2005-2008 to be his most extraordinary national strategy; I dont understand who first caused him to give up on this)

 

3 focus on bringing together massive partnerships around one most valuable knowledge networks connections - eg bottom-up MBA or job-creating economics- and demand that of all partners that part of this equity is given back to his 8 million members who are finding all the value he gave them to own is being nationalised by Hasina

can we meet -from chris dc 301 881 1655

dear tom

not quite sure where we might find a diary slot in next 3 months: I live in dc, commute to boston for fresh innovation air and still linkin with dads friends in london

 

along keynes nightmare scenario, it seems pretty well everything is spinning the wrong economics round from what could be if we are to invest in next generation's productivity and serving the milenniums most exciting goals - the nightmare scenario of dad's last 2 articles in 2008

 

may I ask:  did you read The Economist's own centenary biography in 1943 - that demonstrated how it was founded 100% as a social action media

 

and my dads 1984 book on timelines to change what by if mobilisation of the netgen wasnt to end up being pied pipered along orwell's big brother scenario - dad had a slight headstart on the internet as he saw the one the uk national dev project was working on in 1973! and jolly interesting iot was too for how 500 simultaneously connected people could action learn at a time (not that anything we learnt then has even been used in elearing since with one new zealand exception http://www.thelearningweb.net/ -a story that accidentally 10 million chinese parents have paid to track)

 

one of the few people who keeps me sane in usa is IQ ; would like to swap  ideas on others we can encourage netgen to co-navigate by

In terms of efficent open networking, it really couldnt have been left to me to have to write to all the experts at open source education at MIT, but anyhow below is what I have been forced to write


zasheem- your early journal issue's cover mentions support from harvard university- if you or any of your co-editors know anyone there or rest of boston who might get why I feel open source ed is essential to bangladesh microceconomics universities (grameen, brac or other) please say


if anyone else sees who might want to linkin please say -


hello MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW)

in remembrance of my father who was The Economist internet and entrepreneur storyteller for 40 years (and sponsored by sloan foundation to do biography of john von neumann), my family foundation is aiming to open source a course on everything anyone (youth, entrepreneur ...) who needs to have actionable knowhow about if economics is to invest in next generation's jobs in every place rather than spin the reverse ratings onto more and more communities 

I am confident that your experience in opening content to all who need to action with it is vital- do you have any suggested starting points on what I should do next? I live in washington dc but travel to boston about monthly including tuesday and wednesday this week - one urgent issue among my peer networks is preparing for how to invite delegates in november to the 15th and last annual conference of a microeconomics series www.microcreditsummit.org   linked to helping youth co-produce millennium goals - I dont think we have enough educators or open source practice people at summit in spite of it having been founded by someone who started life as a music teacher, and is one of the most intuitive networkers for youth known to me!

Note on how to end poverty with chickens

NOTES ON ENDING POVERTY WITH CHICKENS

 

By way of context, armed with MIT database technology that emerged in the 1970s, my statistician peers and I have researched the societal value multipliers of markets in 40 countries over a third of a century. My dad’s livelihood of entrepreneurial journalism on what is and isn’t economical about marketing practices goes back to 1949 when he joined The Economist. His curiosity and love of life had helped him to teach himself basic precepts of economics from an Indian correspondence course while working as a teenager to navigate RAF planes in world war 2 out of modern day Bangladesh

 

My family and friends have become ever more concerned as to how markets can be used in 2 opposite ways:

  • Dismally to become ever less economical and less sustainable,
  • Optimistically to free (lively young) peoples’ productivities and communities’ sustainability.
 

Actionably, this dilemma of “questioning how economics would increasingly rule the world” was the final warning which Keynes tutored his last classes of students on including dad (Norman Macrae) at Cambridge in 1948. Any market system gravitated by purpose is a tensely structured exchange of productive and demanding relationships. It is mathematically predictable that it will spin ever more uneconomically when there are too many players with the same me-too-offers. They are at risk of resorting to more and more advertising and addiction, more and more costly channels, uneconomic defensive strategies that professors in ivory towers are hired by the big get bigger to preach, professional monopolies who lose the Hippocratic responsibilities for whole truth which societies entrusted to them,  and the depressing politics of humanly unproductive power games. This increases conflicts at borders like nobody’s business - a terrifying consequence of man’s unnatural temptations to command and control which Hayek termed as macroeconomics’ Fatal Conceit. And, as this compounds exponentially, across generations, educators, children and adults lose quality time and open spaces necessary for common sensing of unique purposes, which innovation could have helped free the human race to integrate, and helped save families to compound sustainability across generations.

 

For an interesting US CEO perspective on purpose and conscious leadership, search youtube.com for Mackey and rainforest alliance, or go to wholeplanetfoundation.org where you will see how every 2 years Whole Foods doubles the number of Bangladeshi-inspired microcredits it is planting across all the hemispheres –and deeply diverse cultures . It freely markets this, as its people interact their uniquely purposeful business of sourcing as much organic foods as American supermarkets can afford.

 

My first experience of the internet was to cut and paste a book which I published openly with The Economist Intelligence Unit with the aim of searching out:  what is the unique multi-win purpose of any market that might have critical impacts on life? This research started in1996, and I was fascinated how increasingly those who worked with the poorest, including the originators of microcreditsummit, came up with more joyfully productive (and sustained value multiplying) definitions of markets than those who worked with the markets of the richest men in the world. Today we can celebrate the knowledge that  banks for the poorest believe the true purpose of credit and savings is served when credit communally identifies the moment in life a person most needs a loan to maximize her income generating entrepreneurship, and wish to develop her family. Whereas the purpose big bankers in rich places believe in is: trapping customers, and communities,  in debt fanned by conspicuous consumption as well as trapping governments in debt so that we end up with the agencies of over-standardised short-term ratings ruling the world. I would prefer my daughter to live in a 21st century where we empower deeply cultural sustainable contexts determining what working lifetimes are available. This energetically and happily renews a model which microeconomists openly began mapping in the 1950s: the search towards a 2 million “global village” networking economy.

ON TO CHICKENS

In Bangladesh, Grameen Bank’s view of ending poverty with chickens is: let’s help communities of the poorest work out how many chicken egg layers each group of 60 poorest village mothers need. That way our country won’t suffer from accumulating any me-too marketing waste; the village will support the optimal number of chicken layers, and there will be practically no costs of marketing thanks to each direct exchange linked in @ village center groups of 60 purposeful maternal producers of services which children and families need most.

 

BRAC’s view of ending poverty with chickens is the traditional scrawny village chicken is inefficient – can we develop a chicken that lays many times more eggs making a better wage for the village chicken keeper? After several years of asking this question it turned out that yes BRAC can,  but 5 different jobs were needed (each of whose producers is microfinanced just-in-time) with the consequence that a whole supply chain is redesigned to be optimally sustainable in helping end poverty.

 

The other 4 jobs, beyond one person keeping a flock of chickens in the village are:

Breeding the superchicken

Para-vets who are needed to regularly inoculate these chickens as they are more prone to disease than the traditional village chicken 

Distributing the surplus eggs of the chickens beyond the village to the cities

Now that we need ten times more chicken feed than ever before, sourcing this from land that couldn’t produce human feeds

 

What is nice from an economical point of view is that Grameen and BRAC offer complementary (nor me-too) competitive ways of ending poverty with chickens. While I am not an expert, I believe you will find that over the years that grassroots entrepreneurial networks have grown,  the similar dual competitive choice of freeing villagers productivities and needs has been extended in Bangladesh to nearly a dozen different agricultural markets, and some crafts and clothing markets.

 

I anticipate that some people’s last question of this note will be : which is better - the Grameen way or the BRAC way? I personally recommend that we can help improve each other’s race to jointly end poverty. Just as me-too competition isn’t economic wherever people aim to end poverty, open collaboration is the innovative new economic model that the net generation’s full employment needs. At least research for the biography of John Von Neumann demonstrated how he saw this as the way above zero sum game to help the first net generation productively innovate using the computers whose collaboration purpose Johnny brought to life. (See Biography, John Von Neumann, Norman Macrae)

 

It is true that those supply chains which BRAC reengineers have an optimal chance to be the most efficient in the world of ending poverty. However Grameen mediates everyday communal trust instead of advancing separated parallel industries. Grameen’s purspose includes deep resolution of cultural conflicts (reference anything written by Mrs Nurjahan Begum). It also creates organic networking space for identifying what is the next big thing – see how it went into mobiles in the villages before BRAC. Joyfully so because the village centre structure of its 8 million membership community is now an extraordinary paradigm for 100000 hubs to experiment with the optimal way villagers can end digital divides empowered by the new freedom to exchange life critical knowhow across villages. In any event, there is so much for the rest of the world to action learn on the hi-trust meaning of free markets from both Grameen and BRAC – as motherly villagers in Bangladesh cross-fertilise this nation’s wonderful 40th year in 2011.

 

Mathematically, I believe its true and fair to say that in the 2010s the more sustained methods of ending poverty in developing worlds are congruent to the methods that promise emergence of the most productive jobs for young people all over developed worlds.

note 2 added 1 dec 2011

dear joyce

wonderful meeting you at EU; as a MA in statistics I have worked for 20 years on exponential maths of social performace -love to share some time' in DC I have only ever found one group who map exponenetials at usaid and world bank - their buzzword is value chain analysis- their local facilitators include Dao in kenya and CARE in Bangladesh

I think we discussed how microcredit networks in your Nordica region MEED URGENLTLY TO continue the prominence of deep microcredit that the Polish chair has celebrated into the Danish chiar- does the diary over the next 6 months suggest any key events- and if so what would be best time to come over either to prepare for them or to be at one of them

Just a long shot - have you by any chance some across swede Borje Wallberg- he's now semi-retired but for much of his life he mentored many of the swedes that worked as missionaries aboard and networked their diverse knowhow; originally his family came from banking so he is a doubly valuable guide to who's who. In 2009 Borje and I spent 2 days in Paris intervieing every Yunus partner we could- at that timje Borje was temporary director of the Yunus partnership with Asian Insitute of Technology in Thailand

I understood your practices connect with tanzania- so I will try and check with brac's former chief of staff who lives near me, who is a contact for BRAC Tanzania

Also I do know Swedish Ingrid Munro leader of Kenya's www.jamiibora.org - which was announced 2 years ago as youth's and south hemispheres most exciting replicationh mdoel bno less than Queen Sofia of Spain, the royal who has helped celebrate all 15 years of microcreditsummit whose coordinator sam daley-harris I also know quite well.

4 Bangladeshi and 2 leaders of 10000 entrepreneurs linked by intercity hubs, and estelle in paris and a Scot :Jeff

Nazrul (who moved to spain from Grameen about 5 years ago) guides me round the wonders of which microcredits in Spain understand the gramen model

Prof Bhuiyan (OFC) runs the most transfornational youth10000 jobs brainstorming competitions it is possible to host in a day

Mostofa is a Bangladeshi vilager who graduated from London university and is now back in Dhaka. He has been involved in most youth projects ever since yunus got the nibel prize

Zasheem you have met

Jeff (also at Economist's remembrance party) and I worked in 1990s on hi-conflict projects at a big 5 management consultants- these included work for pharma companies in sweden and around 1994 full analysis of how unsustainable EU grants to Portugal were going to be

Jonathan founded the www.the-hub.net and Lesley linking in out of s. africa's is the hub africas most connected person- both went on a personal visit to ingrid jamii bora this time last year. I am not sure if anyone at the stockholm hub most deeply shares our urgent interests such as whether the EU will use or abuse microcredit as its last chnace for community revival and youth employment. Estelle and Jonathan have atended most of the entrepreneurial revolution events rememebring my fathers work at The Economist in pursuit of 1843 founders goals to use media and economics to end poverty and end capital abuse of youth. She is a filmaker and journalist linking in French networks, and her father open sources a key component of digital cash. I need to urgently organise 2 days of meetings in Paris. A key reason is the ceo of Africa 24 who operates out of St Cloud and aims to beat off CNN all over afica by providing news africans need. On a good day Paris may be the place to reunite enough of Iqbal Quadirs partners through Africa and Yunus'. There is currently a mortal war between these 2 people who originally partnered in bringing mobiles to the villages in 1996. This is unfortunate as iqbal's networks at MIT map futures that realise my dad and my's 1984 vision of how to prevent macroeconomics from destroying the net generation. http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html This web is maintained by fans of dad in Singapore where a major yunus tech summit happens in february

The 2 countries that specifically took my dads advice are poland in its first 5 years of building economics opposite to communism (say if you want literature on that) ; the new vikings commissioned by the swedish employers association in 1992 as an update on netfuture. Who is the highest tech leader in nordica that we know and who could link in both to quadir and berners lee at MIT and yunus tech in singapore and intel

How Pro-Youth Economists deal with bank failures - we welcome your views: http://normanmacrae.ning.com/forum/topics/how-pro-youth-economists-deal-with-bank-failures

1 don't penalise customers unless they were clearly part of the speculation or fraud

2 penalise shareholders- by all means encourage them to hire lawyers against managers

3 if society has to recapitalise the bank - understand that means you are borrowing from next generation - negotiate the best investment be it phased through privatised or public ownership

4 note clearing banks with the special privilege of starting off loan chains have zero right to claim lack of social responsibility - if they are not governed around investing in next generation's future productivity out of the places whose inter-generational savings they safeguard, they have no right to exist; equally there is no such thing as too big to fial, only too big to have existed in first place

and now for good news media: RSVP info@worldcitizen.tv if you have a top 10 wow

eg wow 1 from Economist Fall11 :  

Last year Luke Geissbühler and his son, who live in Brooklyn, popped a high-definition video camera and an Apple iPhone into a sturdy protective box with a hole for the camera’s lens. They attached the box to a weather balloon, which they released about 50 miles (80km) outside New York City, after getting the approval of the authorities. The balloon soared into the stratosphere and eventually burst. A parachute brought it to the ground. By tracking the iPhone’s inbuilt global positioning system, the Geissbühlers were able to retrieve the box and the video of their “mission”, which shows the curvature of the planet clearly. The results can be seen at www.brooklynspaceprogram.org

comment As The Economist & I forecast in 1984 if you want to get the most useful innovations from this technology, make experimentation with it ubiquitous in primary schools. According to a family http://cmseducation.org that is responsible for schooling 40000 children a year, Pre-adolescents brainstorm more inasanely useful ideas on how to use magic than at any other age; and it does their teachers no harm to help co-explore. A New Zealander visited The Economist in 1984 to doublecheck this recommendation - today new zealand schools and 10 million chinese parents are testing it out http://thelearningweb.net  ...
