Yclub100.com seeks to sustain greatest friendships between chinese youth and global youth. We are looking for 100 youth who can viralise a ;positive movement with potentially millions of chinese and global youth. Our values are based on Scottish Diaspora economists and Keynsians whose value systems mediated The Economist between 1843 and 1993. #TheEconomist


In stage 1 global youth we are focusing on English speaking global youth though we would happily associate with those who wish to replicate our model to other mother tongues (eg Franciscan languages before Argentina G20 2018) as Chinese second languages.

Top 10 alumni networks of Yclub100. Youth help us with top 10 rankings; as of inauguration of Donald Trump here is a charter of the top 10.


1 Celebrate the world’s benchmark diaspora clubs wherever they twin friendships between nations – eg committeeof100 is a leading benchmark


2 Help youth design peer to peer social linguistic networks (and open spaces) so that the cost and time to be confident in second language comes down 10 fold. These and other missing affordability curriculum are a focus of yclub100 subnetwork amychina.net


3 Help promote student exchanges and transformation of education systems so that the cost for youth to gain a world class degree comes down to nearly nothing provided they are aiming to collaboratively design 3 billion new jobs: renew planet, renew community, design Industrial Revolution 4 way above zero sum in every way that IR1 was not (carbon energy, empires, consuming and extracting things as the only trade economists counted and printed currencies paper around)


4 Index a league table of supercities that collaborate around open solutions to the 3 billion new jobs as well as helping young professions change back to Keynsian Hippocratic oath: those whom society looks to monopolise numerical or other rules must transparently do no harm. Connect this valuation of supercities with parallel sustainability investments movement China has proposed eg Xi Jinping’s One Belt One Road and EWTP linked around tech and language (big data small) wizard alumni of Jack Ma. Yclub100 subnetwork worldcitizen.tv searches for connections relevant to this mapping exercise. Ensure that each annual G20 meet celebrates citizen progress in valuing each other cultures and youth 


5 17 S-goals by 2 K-goals by 3 Jobs-goals of the under 30s as the sustainability generation. Our culture hypotheses these are the most exciting times to be alive because 3 generations (half of world aged under 30, their parents and grand parents) are determining by #2030now the future of the human species. In 2015 the majority of nations chartered the 17 S-goals. The 2 keynsian goals are end extreme poverty and optimalaise livelihoods of next generation.


6 Chartering youth’s global worlds possible through qualitative factor analysis. Factor analysis reduces a lot of goals to an actionable handful. Just as Keynes can be seen to offer a 2 goal summary of the 17 goals- what would be the most inclusive set of golas at other numbers between 3 and 17. Bangladesh provides the world’s benchmark case of ending extreme poverty. In the pre-digital age it networked around 6 goals but each with an action twist:

1 end poverty – redesign development financial services

2 end hunger – redesign food value chains so smallest rural are securely included

3  health – segment what basic health services (eg maternal and infant) reqyire minimal training to replicate self-sufficient solutions across villages

4 redesign education to focus on learning for a living

5 redesign youth’s voice in the future around girls and mothers until women were recognized as holding up half the sky ( industrial revolution 1 had reduced voice of poorest girls in Bangladesh to almost nothing)

6 build resilient collaboration cultures capable of coping with the extreme natural challenges that have compounded due to bangladesh’s geography and regional history.

 prioritise women and youth valuations of what borderless livelihoods and sustainable communities are for;  they agree with keynes that uniting the human race to end poverty is the most exciting goal in the world of 2015-2030 ..berners lee on internet at 25


 Population statistics show that Youth's 3A's Asia Africa and Americas (South Central) are where millennials most need to be valued if sustainability and end poverty are to be productive goals of #2030now and #2015now

Unfortunately the segment of old and rich who make most money by extracting and externalising are leaving nothing sustainable for youth, These old rich lurk in all the NW territories which culturally ordered new world citizens mother tongues and faiths

 And doubling today's geopolitical  tragedies, these old rich typically lurk at the top of decision-making power on what used to make sense as democracy and legislature until mass television turned almost every politician into a partisan soundbite instead of a public servant


Across much of the worlds of South and East  1945-1970 saw a long overdue rush by nations' peoples to claim independence and so the development need to empower practices of community-grounded entrepreneurship. 

It is now possible to see that the deepest development thinking on sustainable public servant system design  came in the late 1960s out of South Americas particularly Peru and Columbia. This has been called Preferential Option Poor (POP) : see book In in the company of poor - Google Search- its dna appears to have been a modern rendering of what Saint Francis (Franciscan monks and Order of Clare Nuns) first started to network in 1208 out of Asisi.

Fortunately the Brazilian version of this public service trust creed was applied to teaching by Paulo Freire 

Moreover this (together with neighboring examples of Gandhi Montessori) inspired two Bangladeshi Muslim entrepreneurs of grassroots empowerment (trained out of Glasgow and Van Der Bilt at the time of black american liberation). The compass of their experimental lab for regenerating humanity was the bottom up independence of rural villages that had been excluded from every kind of infrastructure necessary for being productive in industrial age . Their networks which started in 1972 a year after that nation's independence evolved in under a decade around the greatest undervalued communal human resource the world has ever seen - te livelihoods of poorest village mothers. By 1978 Soros, who was later to be first investor in mobilising bangladesh 2,1 from 1996, started investing in South African Black youth - today all of that joyful convergence links in round The Mandela Extranet, Celebrating this among Nobel Peace Laureates was postponed in 2014 due to a riw between china and the Dalai Lama but can yet be staged out of Atlanta Nov 2015 as a pen-ultimate event in 2015 millennilas suatainabililty summit year (Climate being billed as the ultimate celebration Paris December 2015)

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


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.

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

Try to build on links between the three families histories and passion for pro-youth economics

Try to linkin other grassroots superstars foundation http://activeresistance.co.uk/ supermodels

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

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



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


Further reference - ask for our whitepaper on the Future of Universities

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
  • that caused by non-economic media which also distracts us with glossy images and soiundbites instead of future realities and integrated cross-cultural and inter-generational understanding - full briefing here
  • World's biggest maths error compounded by macroeconomists and all global professions with a ruling monopoly - see below

good news 18 Nov 2011: europe bets union on search for 100 greatest social purposes youth can be employed to network 


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

NORMAN MACRAE FOUNDATION 5801 Nicholson Lane, Suite 404, N. Bethesda, MD 20852

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

world class education entrepreneurs: S. Africa, Taddy Blecher

above are selection of papers published at Norman Macrae Foundation sponsored Journal

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  ...
