IS 5 Billion Peoples Elearning Satellite BIGGEST EVER GAMECHANGER OF HEALTH MILLENNIALS? Happy 2015
The most fun 15 years of my working life was an old fashioned marketer for the world's biggest branded companies of the pre-digital era- I had been trained by the first database builders at MIT that when you heard of a new product you debated lots of connecting concepts until enough win-win stakeholders came together to sustain how to change the world with it. Our 1984 book on sustainable futures of the net generation built out of a decade of debates on the breakthrough of digital learning ,made entrepreneurial revolution the most popular topic among global views leaders attracted by The Economist ref 1 2

Virtual community of partners in health to debate whether Yazmi is millennials biggest gamechanger
Join us in rehearsing the sorts of ideas below (however crazy they may make me seem) or if people see ways to join in please do Equally I collaboratively delighted in post millennials goals year of 2015 if anyone will introduce alternatives they propose as millennials biggest gamechanger 

 
The Story So Far  - a fragile concept
 
Poster announcing partners in health virtual debate-competition  -how can we leverage technology to radically increase patient engagement in care
 
My draft entry for millennials to turn dream to reality


E-Learning Satellite Technology 

The idea is to use the existing technology of Yazmi (http://www.yamzi.com), an e-learning satellite-to-tablet content delivery system to share content that explores different topics including top 10 demonstrations of the power of community health care. Other topics include nursing, nutrition, clean energy, mobile life saving applications, cross disciplinary topics on ending poverty and infectious diseases. This technology could also provide a jobs-led curriculum for girls and women. This has been a significant goal of our work in the 
world record game of job creation at: http://unacknowledgedgiant.com/
 
The results could be debriefed to Ted Turner at the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize summit to be held in Atlanta in November 2015.
 
Co-organisers comments. first q&a -conversation between marie and chris on whether above is sufficient context to start discussion
Dear Chris,
 
Wonderful I will share this idea outline, and we will continue ideation in the community—I think you are quite right that there are opportunities for scaling up the work that has been done in Mirabelais and Rwanda. Hopefully others in the community will able to be share insight and suggestions.
 
Very best,
Marie Connelly  Globalhealthdelivery.org

Dear Marie
 
Yes that is the skeleton of the idea
 
Several groups would need to come together to see if this could happen.
 
Probably the one extra context reference would be the 60 minutes pih audio briefing of paul farmer and jim kim last tuesday week. I dont know if the recording of that is yet at a bookmark
 
That audio mentions the need for community healthcare training to be quickly accessible across much of the africa continent. People would have to decide whether an elearning satellite would be a useful channel contributing to such a process.  
 
Back in June 2013 I had a 10 minute chat with Paul Farmer at a conference in Budapest. At that time Mirabelais had quite recently opened. I believe he said that over time what became practice training at Mirabelais would be shared through open learning modes. I am not aware of time lines. Equally I assume that Rwanda is another relevant epicentre of emerging community healthcare knowhow
 
There seem to be pieces that might come together. I guess only a discussion can see whether its nearly possible
 

sincerely chris macrae

The good news is that we now know of 10+ curricula of Global Poverty - the best being free. The bad news is their alumni are mostly siloised by culture and different first challenges before they can get on the same track. The good news is my Ethiopian neighbour owns 5 billion person elearning satellite http://www.yazmi.com . The bad news is he hasnt yet found either best for millennials jobs content or partners in sustainable social business model. May 2015 be all of ours most revolutionary happy year - one capable of transforming every trillion dollar market back to exponentially sustaining all millennials livelihoods. chris.macrae @yahoo.co.uk Partners in Publishing World Record Book of Job Creation 

Who could take which concept to next level
.
 
Nailacould you update sir fazle's wife  in way mostofa can check whether sir fazle abed   wants me to meet him for 30 minutes to update on our june debate of yazmi and distribution of yazmi brochure at fashion4development. If you feel able to say some african leaders may start discussing in january whether it can eg help with global financial inclusion that would make any conversation i can have more relevant. Also if  you can trail the story on your coming west coast weekend please do
 
Tebabu- if you could brief Noah Samara and Tadesse Makela please do. Noah could help immediately if he accepted young africa society at world bank invitation just to debate what dream of pan african/asia elearning satellite could do. He  (with Naila) could also chat to the retiring and incoming African/Chinese heads of ITU to see if this is a concept debate women and youth networks would like ITU to help animate. You (with grameen intel and ifad) can also raise issue whether to make agriculture sexy ethiopian farmers are first to massively invite food for security small producers to develop their childrens jobs-educating curricula- and whether its appropriate for a diaspora association to celebrate such convergences

When you study jim kim and paul farmers life's work, the gift of health millennials leading global social value of health was created out of the field labs of Haiti and Peru with the knowhow of Boston . So americas millennials ought to be the first ted style stage to have people like sir fazle abed and paul farmer debating how can community healthcare training be linked in everywhere -whether or not that region has a helpful   global satellite it already has the best linked in millennials entrepreneurs

 

 
When you study ted turners and george soros life work, millennials could honor that by linking in rome and atlanta as two of the first twin capitals demonstrating that co-hosting jobs summits is more valuable than hosting the olympics. In spite of London 's olympics opening promoting nursing as humanity's greatest profession, the bbc failed to prolong the story. Whats Brazil going to open the olympics with to prolong sustainability's story

 

 
The specific idea that end ebola ought to be the first learning app that yazmi helps distribute is something I'd like to see evolve organically (or at least by boston-based networks) in the debate. If it doesnt appear we can discuss how to kickstart that
5 Favorite things to know about Kim and Farmer -if you have a different favorite please tell us 
5 Farmes started commuting health networks between haiti and boston over 30 years ago; kim joined him from 1988;  after earthquake destroyed haiti's main hospital friends rebuilt new hospital Mirabelais around Farmer (now the greatest global health for the poor teaching hospital anywhere)
4 Until his 5 year term at world bank started summer 2012, Kim said his greatest moment was being discovered by George Soros. Other top 5 discoveries of Soros include funding mobile phones around yunus in 1996, and being BRAC's and PIH's first investor in West Africa. Soros 20th celebrations of open society network co-founded by Gorbachev were staged out of Budapest with Paul Framer and Sir Fazle Abed. (Gorbachev is co-founder with clun of rome of Nobel Peace Laureate Summit whose 2015 millennials edition comes to Atlanta Nov 2015 mainly mediated by Ted Turner family and Yunus , with health care linked in by eg CDC and Emory)
3 At the first world bank tedx, kim explained his mother tutored him in Luther King's maxim of live your life for eternity, while his father a Korean dentist emphasised do practical stuff. For a decade Kim mainly ran Farmer's network out of Boston, but then he went off to fight multi-drug resistant tb in peru. Thus Peru became PIH's 2nd field lab, (Later Rwanda its main African lab) In the process Kim discovered that the MDR TB outbreak in Peru had accidentally been created by the WHO's standard instructions not being context specific enough (Same has been true of preventing ebola)
2 Everywhere they act Kim and Farmer become lead practitioners in infectious diseases. So it is that African and world leaders cant afford not to listen to them if ebola is never to strike again the way it has this year
1 When #2030now Kim says millennials can be most educated, connected, collaborative human race has ever seen- he and farmer have demonstrated how to socially move that with health millennials, He befriends pop start and gets Harvard's Porter to help rewrite global social value chain of health. Who now will do likewise on other sustainability critical issues such as womens empowerment, global financial inclusion, open education  or clean energy networking

As a child I thought the 3 most exciting things in the world were : peace, economics, ending poverty. By the time I went to university in 1969, innovation and computers and learning had taken over my mind.

Over my first 10 years after graduating my father and I wrote a book on the future of the net generation- entrepreneurial revolution, job-directed learning and millennial goals gravitated around ending poverty had returned to the top 3 most exciting social actions around the world .

 

 I was a late starter in many things including being a dad, with the birth of a daughter in 1997 the 3 most exciting things became empowerment of women and of millennials joyfully across cultures and 2030now. These values may impact my selections for the world record job creating game

  •  working at UK National Dev Project for computer assisted learning where dad at The Economist and I first saw students test elearning networks- this led to father developing curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution in The Economist and our 1984 book on how open learning campus maps link  the net generations next 3 billion jobs provided millennials' goals were chosen to be the most human ever raced to and investment in them was valuetrue
  • working with a worldwide partner of MIT professor who had developed early database software- my mission impossible in the 1980s was to research what societies wanted most in over 50 countries and make an open database to inform pro-youth economists and hi-trust designers of media and education

don't you just love economics and media

well no not unless its brac economics or james wilson economics

BRAC Economics -linkedin group and fazleabed.com

.BRAC economics maximises sustained increases in human livelihoods mediating first those who would otherwise have least to produce in life.

 

How many markets has BRAC freed in the original microeconomic sense of adam smith and maynard keynes?

 

PLEASE HELP LIST BRAC FREE MARKETS - what world bank jim kim and his young professional alumni call net generation value chain transformations. Let's do this now- and then..

 (we can then help worldwide students celebrate these curriculum vitae at open learning campus driven by elarung satellites such as http://www.yazmi.com )

 

Case freeing poultry market. Sir Fazle ABED observed that a 1970s Bangladeshi villager couldnt earn a living with the number of eggs the scrawny village chicken used to lay. So BRAC bred a super chicken that lays many times more eggs. But because it does more work the superchicken needs vet attention. Count up the 5 job descriptions that redesign the value chain of the whole poultry market in bangladesh:
breeding superchicks 
vetting superchicks
villagers laying eggs with superchicks 
now that villages have surplus eggs retaining them to cities
producing chicken feed from land not able to support human crops

 

BRAC is Bangladesh's leader of poultry market. It cooperatively frees the market not by taking profit from the village workers every quarter but my maximising income generation across all 5 microfranchise jobs described above. That's employment for over 100000 previously-poorest people that the "chicken microfinance plus bank "mediates and economically sustains. A microcurrency of a bank that is increasing productivity of all ist members sustainably provides a model of safest banking in the world that brac shares with association of like-minded bank leadershttp://gabv.org

MEDIA SEARCH OF GREATEST JOB CREATING BANKS IN THE WORLD
Can you help us make a list other markets BRAC has freed before villagers went digital in 1996 as well as which markets its partnerships are now racing to digitally leapfrog so as to sustain the most jobs starting with those who would otherwise have had the least livelihoods

 

 

 

Keynes: The #1job of the economist is to end poverty; the greatest economic miracle will be ending poverty in developing nation villages (without telecoms, electricity, running water, roads ...) Since 1972 the open education curriculum for achieving that miracle has been mapped by those who partnered millions of poorest Bangladeshi mothers especially those networked by BRAC's Sir Fazle Abed

Norman Macrae's family would like to thank following world record job creatorsfor animating remembrance parties : sir fazle abed and taddy blecher; and the following Japan Ambassador to Bangladesh, Principal of Glasgow University and Adam Smith Scholars, Boardroom of The Economist

  2. sustain optimal livelihoods for all the peoples.
  3. Mediating this was a "crazy" idea started by a Scot in 1843. When Scotland becomes independent again lets hope the Scottish BBC gets back to mediating this on every nightly news.

 Youth Capitalism - By Chris Macrae Inspired by Many Generations of Entrepreneurial Economists and The Economist's Norman Macrae CBE (known to me as dad)

Graduating with MA in mathematical statistics from Cambridge University (Corpus Christi College in summer 1973) I have made my focus market models - how to exponentially sustain future freedom of markets so that they help improve 99% of future generation's livelihoods. This is one of 2 "opposing" schools of economists, ideologists and future system designers - see joyful pro-youth economists such as what eg  Moral Sentiments of Adam Smith, James Wilson , Maynard Keynes (especially last 3 pages of General Theory and last chapter of essays in persuasion), Schumacher, Yunus,  Soros Open Society, Boulding, various Japanese leaders of 1960s  to help children all over the planet design systems they need to communally grow up with and use the www collaboratuvely. Some lucky breaks in improving my understanding of auditing trillion dollar markets (those whose purposes are most life critical ) include:

1973-1976 practicing in the most calue multiplying of all netgeneration markets of future: open education  -uk national develoment project of computer assieted learning - what we learnt in those days of experimenting with thousands of students still hasnt been designed into any digital education or community of practice -tell us who your education heroines and heroes are chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk we try and keep notes at www.bracnet.ning.com (let us send you an invitation if you wish to co-edit notes on job creating educators) 

  • 1976-1980 chief statistician for various companies within National Opinion Polls Group of Associated Newspapers
  • 1980-1989 Asia project director of market modeling database with MIT and Paris headquartered boutique analyst firm of greatest social needs in over 100 countries and thousands of product and service markets
  • 1990 -2000 Author of books and founder of associations (Marketing Electoric Learning NET, World Class Brands , Certifiacte of Brand Chartering and Valuing Trilion Dolar Audit Purposes) on corporate branding as unique organising purpose of learning organsiations and valuetrue multiw-in models of goodwill, transparent conflict revolution and exponential sustainability - senior consultant in several Big 5 consultancy and all top 3 ad agencies
  •  2001-on redeveloping father's pro-youth economic curriculum started at The Economist in 1972 when we first became involved in digital learning experiments, and writen upover 12 years (1984 book on the future's next 40 years) as the genre of Entrepreneurial Revolution and millennium colaboration goals of net generation- keynoting on how to apply this at some of the biggest risk conferences; linking bottom-up multinational models of father's favorite asian economies from consider japan 1962, China 1975, Bangladesh 2008. Helping tell the stories of how twinning future capitals around billion jobs youth summits will become during 2010s far more valuable a youth movement than even the Olympics became during the 20th century

 My family twitters at myunuslabglobalgrameen and obamauni, we ning at normanmacrae and yunuscity and bracnet and jamiibora, we face at microeconomics, we you tube at socialbusiness, globalgrameen, yunuscentre, safebanks - we web out of varioys spaces including yunusgrameen.tv, brac.tv, wholeplanet.tv, microeducationsummit.com you can also skype me at chirsmacraedc , Washingtin DC region number 1 301 881 1655 email chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk 

My family's 6 generations of mediationing community and cross-cultural projects starts with helping majority of Scots to emigrate in early 19th century, connects with 25 yeras or arbitration with mahatma Gandhi, links the last three quarter of a century of the 175th birthday of The Economist to  be celebrated in 2018 - designed round purspoe of ending hunger and ending capitl abuse of youth. Thyere is no logical reason why worldwide youth of 2010s shouldnt be enjoying the most productive and colaboratuive time- wherever that is not so the media and macroeconomic system errors being spun are greatest maths errors the human race has ever been traped in.

back in 1972 my first job helped youth experiment with early digital learning networks ; my dad norman macrae saw this as the greatest entrepreneurial revolution ever- far more significant than steam's industrial revolution -

 

he spent the rest of his life debating Entrepreneurial Revolution in The Economist trying to make the coming of the internet the greatest pro-youth change the world had ever liberated- the exact opposite of the tv age which he rated as the dumbest most bossy and least purposeful communications man had developed- whether tv had to become one of the top 20 anti-youth monopolies is an interesting debate but the way [oliticians and commerce that cheapens every human motivation used tv has brought us to many brand reality crises - see triple issue of journal of arketing management that I guest edited in 1999 as a summary of what whole truth purposes got lost during second half of 20th century - more webs on this www.worldclassbrands.tv www.brandchartering.com - valuation consequences www.trilliondollaraudit.com - what purpose could each global market sustain or destroy youth with; www.valuetrue.com

 

Goog doesnt tell you I come from several generations of maths people interested in how do we design futures our children most need investment in; I have mostly researched media, education and entrepreneurial economics - especially extreme innovation empowered out of every community

 

 

I do not believe that a media platform that shouts its social is very often - so facebook being my number 2 google is ironic -stillI don't want to close down being identified with microeconomics http://www.facebook.com/microeconomics

Norman Macrae
Norman Macrae, Japan Order of Rising Sun with Gold Bars, CBE was a British economist, journalist and first author of internet generation (& 21st C pro-youth economics), considered by some to have been one of the world's best forecasters when it came to economics and society -dad valued youth more than any economist or journalist or mass mediated public servant I have met- what were his methods?

historysfuture30.jpg

 Introduction- my father Norman Macrae at The Economist and I, Chris Macrae ,shared a live changing moment in 1972 when we first saw 500 youth sharing knowledge online around an early digital network. Father coined the genre Entrepreneurial Revolution in The Economist to debate the future leaders' compound consequences of this greatest communictaion revolution ever to connect one generation of the human race. I went to work for 4 years at The UK National Development Project for Computer Assisted Learning. Week 2 looks at lessons from our first 10 years of debating whether the net generation would be the most productive time to be alive. It is based on our book written in 1982 and first published in English in 1984 to provide an alternative tour to the future to Orwell's big brother endgame. My father had been mentored by Keynes immediately afer world war 2 that economists were only capable nof compounding two opposite outcomes - designing or destroying the futures that 99% of parents most want for their next generation. He spent his life optimistically editing pro-youth economic ways of valuing purposes of man-led systems. In particula,r his book on the Net Generation focuses on 7 wonders - markets whose purposes would most be to be freed to sustain invetsment in 21st C youth around heroic collaboration goals and sustainable integration of millions of communities into a globalisation that multiplied hi-trust as well as hi-tech.

 ...............................................................what we learnt at The Economist 1975-1985

Potentiallly planet-shatering risks to the net generation which we chaptered in our book included:

Lack of sufficiently open systems

Failure to prioritise man's greatest risk being the discrepancies between incomes and expectations of rich and poor nations

Seeing web as an extension of advertising instead of an the smartest media opportunity to transform education

Failing to blend emotions of human and machine intelligence in such a way that technolgy is celebarted for creating new more exciting jobs. In particular not transforming from industrial age scarcity of things that ger consumed up to knowledge whose economy has abundance because knowhow can multiply value in use

Not valuing nature's evolutionary invitation to design systems that are bottom-up and open, instead of the way industrial age drifted towards top-down and closed especially as the west's "democracies" started to drown in tv advertsing spots during 3rd quarter of 20th C (the exact opposite of free markets let alne free speech as Adam Smith had intended)

 what we learnt at world class brands 1985-1995

My work during 1980s was mainly with market models developed at MIT. I helped test a wide range of the world;s largest new products as corprations started to go global in their decision-making power. Remember that back in 1980 the fastest way a mulinational company could share written knowledge was on paper ticketape pumped out by telex machines- whereas by 1990 digital info networks were being installed into the bigegst corporates. We discovered ever bigger gaps between ad age's global imaging and the purposes that local societies most wanted market categories to sustain. Thats why we published how to charter the search for greatest organisational purposes - who in the world would uniquely miss what if this organsisation, network or market either didnt exist or wasnt led pursposefully?Recently Whole Foods CEO has revitalised the quest for purpose inviting ceos to join in benchmarking conscious capitalism >Whole Foods wastes next to nothing onh tv advertsising  empowering it to celebrate through communiti9es a trio of whole purposes -kidsfoundationplanetfoundation as well as nutritious foods.

 what we learnt at trillion dollar audit 996-2005

Trillion Doloar markets greatest risks are not systems that are too big to fail but ones that are too big to exist. 

even if you have catalogued the most brilliant methods of faciitating massiive co-innovation, systems get over-trumped by what metrics are audited and rewarded most often. I spent the 1990s in world's largest manageent consultants and ad agencies- shockingly they had no audits of multi-win models needed to transform to a borderless age let alone any whole truth valuations of the greatest purposes that value exchanges of productivities and demands need to exponentially sustain if parents are going to successfully  invest in next generation out of every community

 what we learnt from milennium goal summits 2005-2015

Fater.s 1984 work had predicted 2005 as year when man recognised its greatest risk as discrepancies in incomes and expectations of rich and poor nations even as virtual worlds of productivity make nation's borders the riskiest wherever externalisation economics rules. So this is our decade from learning from the greatest grassroots system designers and mobilising of open tech. Dad's last articles were written in 2008 after 85th birthday celebration guested by Muhammad Yunus. The Consider Bangladesh brochure is one we use to celebrate remembrance parties of dad- 3 so far in different hemisphers since Norman's oarting in 2010

SUMMARY PERSPECTIVE -last update new years day 2013

Since 1972, when dad at The Economist and I first saw hundreds of young people sharking knowhow around a digital network, we have been pssionate about valuing leaders who see 2010s is humanity's most exciting decade - things will go very well if we can massively and openly invest in youth's most exciting (productive and sustaiable) uses of million times more collaboration technology than any previous generation. However as a statistician who has worked on large media projects, I see an increasing gap between the purposes most of 7 billion people need the largest trillon dollar markets to locally serve and what purpsoes world's largest organsaitions are being governed around. Dialogues on this exponential crisis of compound opportunity and risk have been animated since 1972 in The Economist around the genre of Entrepreneurial Revolution. Here is part of my 2013 diary that I can already map -great to join in with your if we can share any youth win-win interests chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

We wanted to go to the moon, so we went there.
We achieve what we want to achieve.
We accept that poverty is part of human destiny. It’s not!
We believe we can create a poverty-free world.
We need to invent ways to change our perspective.
We can reconfigure our world if we can reconfigure our mindset. .
Social business will be a new kind of business, making a difference in the world.
Human beings are a wonderful creation embodied with limitless human qualities and capabilities.
Entrepreneurs are not one-dimensional human beings, dedicated to maximizing profit.
They are multi-dimensional: political, emotional, social, spiritual, environmental.
The desire to do great things for the world can be a powerful driving force
Young people dream about creating a perfect world of their own.
Social business will give them a challenge to make a difference by using their creative talent.
Let us join hands to unleash our energy and creativity.
Collectively, we can create a poverty-free world.”

Back In 1971, on the future of finance, NM wrote:

The rich countries of the world are probably going to go into balance of payments deficits with the poor ones. Most of our international financial mechanisms are prepared for the opposite. Are multinational companies going to be an efficient means of exporting capital around the world? There is a fine old muddle about this arising out of a lack of discrimination between the effects of a) different countries' balances of payments, and b) the mobilisation of savings. The consequences will be important for the future of banking business over the next two to four decades. It may even be that on this unexpected hinge that the fate of the whole interantional economic system will swing.

My exponential purpose in 2010s
To network with leaders like Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus
to see if we can make 2010s most exciting decade - the one in which we sustain the world by changing economics

WHY?

Family tree connects the dots of Adam Smith's economics intended to exponentially sustain growth of every community and place : value multiplying goodwill through win-win-win system exchanges, not extraction economics' lose-lose-lose maths. Compound Risk Paradox forewarned by the team of Gandhi, Einstein, Montessori : to explore how to go way above zero-sum even while all global  professions monoply rule with zero-sum mindsets.

HOW?

2011: selectively make social business loans connecting 3000 leaders and youth through  with knowhow of adam smith, muhammad yunus and everyone who purpose is to grow win-win-wins communally -and since 1984 through collaboration networking ...through projects of worldcitizen.tv focus selectively on collaboration cities (& global villages) that my most trusted interpersonal connections may be able to reach : Dhaka, Glasgow, Paris, Princeton, Africa, New York, DC, (looking next for somewhere in India, China, Japan, Spain) - and worldwide hubs   

2012 ... ???

What productive collaborations am I urgently serching for?

 

What should an optimistic maths and media guy like me do with an obsession that has grown on me since 1976 thanks to 2 people : dad and muhammad yunus with special gifts for microeconomics and entrepreneurial revolution:- the 2010s is the most exciting decade to be on earth because its the time when the net generation will irreversibly design globalisation to compound one of 2 opposite futures –

1 where productive jobs grow and grow as our race unites in ensuring a future where no child is born into a place where their her life is stilted by poverty or wars or families and communities are so mentally or physically sick that there is neither chance of education nor healthy development  ;

2 the other -Orwell's Big Brother scenario also voiced by many system thinkers including Einstein and von neumann-  where good jobs are increasingly destroyed because technology is valued as investment that replaces human beings and what is actually happening is our species has turned against investing in the future of youth-  a compound disaster already emerging in richer world’s walled streets, madoff venues, and collapsing euros as well as well as making the life of the poorest girls in the world even worse than it ws before today’s most wonderful technology existed  

 

STRENGTH 1976-2004 has proven 10 times more economical community models exist for all life critical service needs if we choose to network them sans frontiers

 WEAKNESS - we have not helped youth to use the net and worldwide interactive freedoms to replicate sustainability solutions; and intergenertionally we are not well prepared for - let alone investing in - 2010s defining economics challenge- will we use the new tech to create jobs or destroy jobs at an expoentially acceleraring rate?

 OPPORTUNITY- engaged the world's more resourced organistionl systems and owners of the wondrous technologies- look at what collaboration partnerships can do http://erworld.tv/ http://yunusuni.com/ http://danonecommunities.com/  http://grameenjapan.tv/ http://worldcitizen.tv/

and celebrate http://202020.tv/ http://2012sustainability.com/

 THREAT - transform old 20th century professions that use "separation" rules and who value things as investments not people and who use tv media to dumb down not educate and who make boundaries between countries the greatest compuound risks. The maps we need in 2010s help peoples integrate a world where collabortion can empower people to be 10 times more productive than zero-sum governance and bring down degrees of separation on all life critical knowhow
 

What friends and I can offer is to connect you with these 4 ways to create jobs in communities- ways whose worldwide map need to interconnect people at every local hub of need and productivity  but where you can start with where your experience and goodiwill connections can multiply by knowing how to quest for fellow job creators.

 

Two people’s work since 1976 inspires me most – my dad who until his death in june 2010 challenged me weekly to take the urgency of this challenge seriously with everything I do, and dr muhammad yunus who first invited me to see him and the 8 million female entrepreneurs who own the bank for the poor he founded in bangladesh in an email I received xmas day 2007 . Dr Yunus wanted to know why my dad was sponsoring my friends and i to be at the centre of 1000 yunus book club of social business and economics for youth.

As a MA in Statistics University of Cambridge I have spent my life collecting huge amounts of data and then turning these into mapping games (and models) enabling leaders and communities to make different decision choices than they otherwise would. Some of these time periods ran concurrently : 5 years spent trying to understand Bangladesh Social Business Models... I would try and collaborate with anyone seriously concerned about 2010s being sustainability's decade with all to play for regarding future generations - a decade far more entrepreneurially exciting than the moon race humans united round in the 1960s - see eg http://yunusdiary.com for some scenarios that seem to me minimal goals for us to map and network round now.6 years spent on the behavioural interactions of computer assisted learning; I also worked with my father (microeconomist at The Economist for 40 years) co-authoring The 2024 Report in 1984  (published year later in USA as 2025 Report)- would the net generation sustain or destroy the world's future?- both global sysetm exponential trajectories being possible depending on whether Wall Street macxroeconomics continues to shred the peoples community economics and creative rights to jobs as microentrepreneurs - there is little probability of an in between endgame; mo0re at futurehistorian.tv20 years spent on professional and transparency crises in valuing intangibles and global brand leadership/partnerships; 15 years spent collecting data on deepest social needs of thousands of markets in over 40 countries particularly in Asia, Europe USA;  more at journalofsocialbusiness.com

Here I present my conclusion as well as brief context of 3 generations of system designers who contribute to perspective urgency and requirement for worldwide collaboration .If you as one of the 1000 friends mailed this have a different short reply to the subject and would like it published alongside mine at http://chrismacrae.com – send it me and I will publish it. If you don’t want to publish something but do want to group in this topic please join http://sustainabilityteens.com which I will keep open for a week after which entry will require clarification of what support a person can bring to the group

 Conclusion : Collaboration is the new innovation advantage of nations and other sustainable networks of systems capable of vaue multiplying above zero-sums.  The only person with enough practice and love of solving this problem who also has world stage networking gravity is dr muhammad yunus. Let's all get connecting in sustainability projects around him. 

Although networks around Dr Yunus came up with many micro solutions up to 2005, what changed Yunus as well as his scope of influencing sustainability was becoming world famous with his nobel peace price o 2006. More than that he started testing the value multiplying economics of partnerships the first typology to start connecting with his back of community up social business solutions and the nobel world stage were global corporate brands.

 

 In November 2009 he launched the global grameen collaboration partnering game in sustainability –with 100 alumni at volkswagen’s autostadt conference centre in wolfsburg near Berlin as part of Germany’s week long celebrations of the 20th fall of the wall which . Sustainability’s collaboration partner now appears to have at least 12 interconnectng system typologies. The combinatorial impacts of micro up, collaboration across different system silos and the world stage cannot be over-estimated but you have to rehearse the game in your own mind and with your peer professions or practices to see why http://ww.globalgrameen.com

 

The likelihood that the 2010s would be humanity’s most critical decade for sustainability has been trailed by family’s 3 generations of system designers

 

My maternal grandfather as high court judge in mumbai argued for much of 25 years with Gandhi  -one bar of london barrister to another -and Einstein  before power that be around him agreed it was time to help with the legalese of India’s independence; core to gandhi’s system transformation was the aha! that it was the UK professions (including the law he had himself mastered)  that were compounding under colonial rule the loss of his people’s sustainability. Einstein who refereed a lot of Gandhi’s transformation moves went on record : when the time comes that man’s technology globalises connections between nations, peoples and nature, I hope but do no expect that humanity will succeed in transforming  to a higher order than historic professions separated.

 

My father www.normanmacrae.com  taught himself economics as a teenager while waiting to fly RAF planes out of Bangladesh. After ww2 he went up to cambridge being the last generation to be mentored by Keynes. He wrote up the future history of free market economics from his desk at The Economist for mist of the second half of the 20th century. Famously his 1960 Sunshades in October he explained how economic theory serially compounds greatest system risks from elder economists who has nicely patched system failures in ways that were right for that time but who then spun macroeconomics off in another  direction which would need younger generations to correct it. In his 25 December 1976 survey Entrepreneurial Revolution – he predicted a missing system of microeconomics would need finding –and worldwide celebrating by a NoBel Laureate -  by early in century 21 if sustainability  was not to be lost –the greatest challenge ever to face one generation –our networking generation

My own work integrates transparency of mapping to combat how both media and metrics professions have spiraled globalisation fallibly thus opening up brand and metric solutions – these are congruent to microeconomcs system and collaboration designs of Dr Yunus but clearly not as simple as the sustainability games he now invites us all to urgently collaborate around

Who am I? Accidentally I have spent all my career helping people handle world famous identities. So did my 2 grand fathers (one with Gandhi, the other British embassy consular between the 2 world wars), and my father who worked at The Economist 1950 (4th ranked weekly English newspaper, 1989 one of a kind global magazine). It wasnt until 1984 when I co-authored a book questioning the sustainability exponentials of globalisation's generation 1984-2024, and 1988 when I authored World Class Brands that I realised what my primary working role in life is. The first quality I need to help people handle (systemise) world famous identities is for myself to be unknown ; I also hope it's true that I have little self-ego other than when I have decided that an unique organising purpose is vaut le voyage. more
I started work 36 years ago after a earning a postgraduate diploma in mathematical statistics at the University of Cambridge, Corpus Christi College; prior to that I earned a BA with First Class Honours & Prize at University of York. Here is the subject I have spent more of my time becoming experienced in than any other. To clairfy: I only accept work where people are asking for advice on how not to prevent systemic organisational destruction or how to sustain purpose so that all sides grow health and wealth. On some occasions I do pro bono work for organisations that are best benchmarks for the world but as yet are not known by all the people who could be replicating their value multiplying purpose- something that the networking age can be as huge an opportunity for as it is a risk of replicating purpose destruction systems.

PRESS RELEASE

 Future Capitalism – Entrepreneurship for Life Shaping Innovation & Sustainability InvestmentMicroBrief for The First Youth Dialogue on Future Capitalism with Muhammad Yunus and Bangladesh Microeconomics leaders 29 June 2009. http://yunusforum.net/  

This bottom-up field of leadership practice and microeconomic mapping was grounded since 1971 with Birth of Bangladesh as a nation and the immediate challenge of million person famine. Networks of collaborative innovation pioneered Unique Frameworks of Future Capitalism summarised below.

 Bangladesh Third century of Epicentre of Entrepreneurial Revolution 1976

While the Economist Christmas 1976 Survey of ER mapped why a sustainable world would need a Next Capitalism and entrepreneurial revolution by 2010, Bangladesh became the practice epicentre inviting the world to join in

 

From outset, life changing foci of Future Capitalism included : healthcare, education for job creation, ecologies of water/food/energy, banking, media and channels, professional hippocratic oaths, bottom-up governance and government. First two world changing innovation grassroots networks : BRAC’s oral rehydration village nursing network early 70s , Grameen’s microcredit – banking for poor female and community entrepreneurs project since 1976 (constitution 1983).

 

FC1 Social Business Entrepreneur Networks since 1974

FC2 Social Action Grassroots Networks since 1974

FC0 National to Global Dialogues since 1989

FC3 MicroSummit  Interactive www Networks since 1997

FC4 Global Industry Sector Responsibility 1.0 and millennium goal since 1997

FC5 Global Industry Sector Responsibility  2.0 Partnerships & Trillion Dollar Audit since 2006

First book mapping Bangladesh’s Bottom-Up Third Century of Microeconomics , Microentrepreneurship and Future Capitalism 2007 – Creating a World Without Poverty- Social Business, Future of Capitalism , Muhmmad Yunus

 5 Things FC is systematically evolving round in interacting community-rising maps with www networks

5.1 Our win-win-wing generation’s united space race to end poverty

5.2 Strategy: global industry sector responsibility and leadership partnerships

5.3 Youth School of journalism of microeconomics and social business modeling

5.4 Sustainability Investment and Transparency Trillion Dollar Audit

5.5 Networks open sourcing social business replication designed to integrate localities into win-win-win global and professional transformation of MBA to SMBA

    5 Corrections to Misleading macroeconomic journalism 

January 2008: The Financial Times reviewer who called social business and FC a flimsy new idea had no idea of a third of a century of work which Bill Clinton has called Bangladesh’s new development economy model 

 

Since 1974; Whilst social business entrepreneurship is modeled on Gandhian beliefs it differs from the American view of social entrepreneurship coined in 1978. Social Business entrepreneurs insist on seeing a sustainable cashflow model and ownership by community poorest. Sustainability design and valuation governance turn social businesses into the deepest of all entrepreneurial network challenges at the innovation, practice and replication stages.

 

Based in transparent microeconomics , FC helps everyone return to the original free market language of the entrepreneur as person who makes more jobs than he takes. This is one of the reasons why FC is the only whole system approach to sustainability investment funding. To study this 5 key periods in reporting are commended:

 

· The Speech made to Bangladesh youth by the chair of the Nobel committee summer 2008 in opening the Nobel Museum above the Mirpur slum in Dhaka

· The Millennium Citation of the Gandhi Prize to Muhammad Yunus 2000 for reuniting the Eastern fields of Gandhian Satyagraha and the western field of entrepreneurship

· The Economist 1976 survey on entrepreneurial revolution;

· The founding Scottish prospectus for The Economist in 1843,

· What Adam Smith and his French and Scottish entrepreneurial alumni actually wrote about transparency, free markets and national integration in the second half of the 18th century

 

Today’s global banking meltdown is also about a global market failure to segment basic banking needs from banking for the very rich. In contradistinction, Microcredit’s third of a century has innovated 10 times lower cost banking around basic services of credit for income generation ad deposits for household saving. It offers the safest banking in the world but can only be designed where national laws do not discriminate against its transparency of community-up operations. The latest mobile develops suggest that 100 times lower cost banking is a reasonable goal within a decade http://bankabillion.org

 

However, it is not reasonable to value sustainable designs of microcredit just by narrow banking metrics. This is because hi-trust microcredit networks invest in a bottom-up infrastructure for empowering all life-critical entrepreneurial replications that communities vote as life critical. Not only has internet for the poor become a major enabler in the last 15 years but microentrepreneurial networks now offer world leading contributions to open sourcing solar and other renewable energy franchises.

updating my 2013 diary

2013 is 170th birthday of The Economist mediating end hunger; 41st since i first saw youth online networking
; 4th of make or break decade of youth's greatest prouctive time to be alive

places need more excuses to linkin china, japan dubai as the investment home of legatum ,qatar and wise networks

MOOC - Massive Open Online Courses

  • mooc economics
  • Journal of Social Business
  • microeducationsummit
  • major process of 2013 year of mooc -linkedin debates

    1 making a menu of MOOCs we want to see emerge so youth can job create

    2 making skeleton notes on some contents of particular moocs

     

    bangla knowhow actions: wish to find way to win-win with ullah's cloud sourcing of open tech youth- and still want to know more about updates from eg 1 kazi (china-bangla green farms) 2 quadir (cashless banking) 3 grameen intel bangla and samir 4 japan book and ashir


    as of now my known diary

    jan mainly in dc where naila's new project involves several thousand disadvantaged youth who come for a medical checkup on the same day in april but where we can host stalls while the crowds are there

    jan 17-19 alabama attending last know yunus competition of 012/013 and opportunity to guage whether alabama is serious about a whole new yunus uni of poverty - naila's first competition and zasheem's - zasheem expects to see stiglitz 2 days earlier 


    february mainly debriefing on mit student projects 2 of which I have become involved with as well as seeing how 24 projects have incubated over last 2 months; still aiming with people like naila to be able to give best ever tours of mit if someone like abed has a spare day in boston


    march hope to spend a few days in dhaka when ideally all 3 of sarah, japan ambassador and a day meeting with abed family would converge- zasheem believes that abed family want a day on how to launch microeducation summit, to understand possible first moocs - eg why not do a mooc version of aflatoun-  there is some hope that zasheem will get day known weeks in advance in which case wonder whether eg anyone from lucknow can join in-its got to linin either with mooc production or microeducationsummit or possibly student competitions


    missed in above is japan- its a great pity we havent got one person in tokyo in time for me seeing 12000 competition event and trying to linkin father's debates of japans role in pro-youth econommics as well as its need to lead green moocs


    also missed is taddy blecher- he has been out of contact during 6 weeks trip to india- can be contacted ti mid january


    also missing plan for europe- usuualluy i would attend a dnaone communities event in april but zasheem said he would link in youth of glasgow, paris and with nazrul madrid playing on how he advances stiff with eg stiglitz and abed


    still havent heard from anyone at hub; experiments in breaking down student silos for month of april dont look as if they are going to go well with official yunus networks but still keeping an eye out for when his gold congress medal date is announced; i would guess it will be fall 2013 and that is when I must have something he wants me to host an event about -either start of microeducationsummit planning or some pecimen moocs on youth economics or a catalogue of yunus student projects that6 are alive with mentor networks and merging prctice focused funds


    havent worked out where to celebrate economist at 170 (eg depends if sarah will cooperate)- have reorganised main right hand column of http://normanmacrae.ning.com  around sevral year long themes - one each from 10 webs on back page of happy 2013 card

    hi richard

    I am obsessed about collaboration around jobmaking heroines and heroes

    So I have been wondering for some time how to extend journey for change, leadersquest models to many regions (including bangladesh and since november europe!) as well as whether there are ways to add to existing journeys - www.cmseducation.org at lucknow is one of india's greatest cases but missed out by social entrepreneurs as it doesnt fit their traditional categories

    another case in point is joburg/s.africa where taddy blecher will be talking to londoners about his partners cluster out of s.africa (includes kiva, where branson started his entrepreneur curriculum ,,, ) on evening of march 26 at http://hubwestminster.net founded by indy

    I'll be in london from evening of 25 march to 28 march- be great to discuss this further if we might be able to work out mutual advantages

    12:39 pm est 

    martin - fantastic meeting you yesterday in DC -what extraordinary projects JE Austin has linked in over decades

     

    tell me if this email list gets too much - contextually it has an advantage that I can later debrief you on all of these peoples connections may be relevant - in effect they connect some of the deepest links to africa that my father's entrepreneurial networking friends and I have found in last 10 years especially from the youth entrepreneur/education cluster that taddy links in out of s.afica-eg here is my fan web of www.taddyblecher.com

     

     

    equally one of the questions I am asking myself is if taddy blecher (with such as branson, kiva, google) in joburg and ingrid munro in nairobi www.jamiibora.org and peter ryan who operates subsahran microcredits www.microloanfoundation.org are 3 people whose in-africa collaboration networks to trust activating africa's millennium goal future to, how does this link with type of usaid agriculture work /knowledge you help lead, and indeed does it also link with energetic students networks like alex simons? there is also the issue of will feed the future and B20 http://www.b20businesssummit.com/themes/development-and-food-security networks ever collaborate optimally? (suppose for a moment neither sarkozy or obama gets re-elected - it would be a extremely uneconomical if all the transformations they began towards africa and agricultures did not continue with all their permisisons. I need to find the right moment to host a debate on this issue at the French Embassy in DC with their economics group)

     

     

    as well as people I trust most in midst of the 10000 hub entrepreneur network -indy is the person to advance contact if you are passing through london as http://hubwestminster.net is designed around my father's old strategy at The Economist to be most convenient place for any interesting leader passing through london to drop in , brainstorm, build collaboration network they need economically

     

     

    the other european capital city I can help fix huge collaboration meetings in is paris -

     

     

    1 with founders of www.africa24tv.com is my favourite television news model - 90 journalists hunting out best news by and for african transparency with knowledge links to mo ibrahim - what he is doing at a national leadership level, they are mapping for 50 industries they beleive africa needs to be self-sufficients as well as regionally interconnecting around

     

     

    2 with convenor of http://www.convergences2015.org/en/ - since big banking americans blew up microcreditsummit's 15 year focus- this parisian annual 3000 networking event is in my opinion now the main millennium goal network organised by and for people and youth to colaborate around in line with my dads 1984 scenario of net generation uniting race to end poverty http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html#Anchor-Changin-27687

     

     

    martin - as agreed, I will write customised report after the 2 events I am co-hosting in London and Dhaka in next 3 weeks:

     

    taddy at westminster hub in london

     

    asking japan who awarded my dad their highest internationalhonor how they can help bangladesh and more broadly chnage economics/travsparency paradigms throu asia at meeting their embassy sponsors in dhaka

     

    of course would love to know if there is anything specific your network wants to be better linked to particularly with www.brac.net which remains my number 1 model of bottom-up grassroots networking wherever its transformation of value chains is launched; a huge bit of good fortune for me is that sir fazlle abed's chief of staff (who is trusted by sir fazle to know the whole organigram of brac) had to take an 18 month sabattical because of a family matter - she lives 1 minute away from me in in.bethesda

     

    I also need to try to publish with a select editorial group either an african special issue or a value chain special issue of journal of social business before some hi publicity pan africa tours happen that I know are being planned but dont believe will do more than pr

    intro ireland mulvany macmurray; westminster johar; australia komesaroff'; india devy

    here are my impressions of you all- (I realise its rude to have impressions of people I have only met once or twice or in michael's case skyped for an hour but here goes). I am nearly 20 years old on the internet so while I dont claim any big brain I have been searching for who might want to connect who for longer than most


    clare - I would be surprised if ireland has a more consciencious reporter of worldwide social innovation- I first virtually bumped into clare while the omidyars who founded ebay were still hosting a virtual community on social innovation- clare was using it to plan a worldwide tour of seeing most extremely useful community innovations animated by microentreprenurs relevant to millennium goals; she spent nearly 2 years on her world tour; wrote up a book; aimed (but was let down by a property tycoon) to start a hub in dublin both to educate (link action networks) as influence how media people saw what exciting things young people could be doing; this is clare's blog up to spring 2009 http://www.exceptional-lives.blogspot.com/ unlcrear of her latest diaries


    (incidentally I feel that the omidyars went on to accidentally undermine microcredit putting 100 million into funding the worst sort of academics; whilst ebay's first ceo jeff skoll is an interesting character -he currently finances reality disater moves like inconvenient truth- headhunted larry brilliant to be medical editor of this genre; hosts annual world championships of social entrepreneurs in oxford - a network which in my opinion taddy blecher does most to keep exciting but see bias below)


    michael tells me he works for ireland's ministry of health on the infomation technology side and is a bit frustrated because he has taken irish leaders on some international benchmarking tours to see specific extremely useful advances in healthcare that open source tech can do but when he gets back to ireland conventional wisdom keeps blocking trying out these ideas ( and indeed the usual suspects like microsoft profit from blocking goverment looking at open source)


    Indy has created a space in westminster to debate such issues if you are ever passing through london- this has learnt from challenges the first 40 similar spaces for entrepreneurs around the world discovered in linking in nearly 10000 energised people; one of the 4 main applications of westminster hub http://hubwestminster.net people is smarter use of big data- indy specifically told me uk national health service is due to release a huge set of patient records in anonymous form to see what can be analyses that has never been found before- meanwhile indy and I are trialling whether there is motivation amongs shareholders of The Economist or others to launch The New Economist which gets back to (James Wilson 1843 founder) original purpose of the journal designed to debate how to invest in system that end hunger and end underemployment anywhere -the race to end big brotherhood which james founded economics/media to start ending in 1843 is probably in its final denoument through these 2010s ...


    our first co-production will be to try and unite taddy blecher with the 80 people he most needs to linkin to that happen to be in london around march 26- taddy is founder of free university out of s.africa and his partnership cluster there with kiva, branson, google africa etc has more positive accelerating momentum right now than anyone else I have information on -though of course I am always interested to know who you think at a particular moment in time, place, passion has most window of opprtunity to unite world in entreprenurial revolution that sustains the human lot


    a family friend is the former head of the royal society of medicine but as often with the noisy challenge of trying to connect the deepest action network of yunus with a friend, this hasnt gone well so if I am to approach sir keith peters again it better be on something we really can do; a friend of my fathers but not someone who knows me is mary robinson; in the event she and ireland might like to host a small remembrance party of my dad in the sequence started at The Economist boardroom http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbYo9daNiTY and being continued next month by japanese embassy in dhaka, I can offer 3000 pounds to get some food and drink in but have no idea how the rest of the process out of dublin would need to work; you may know that after 15 years of designing systems to ruin the future of youth in november 2011 the EU http://www.erworld.tv/id105.html suddenly said it has found one last fund of hundreds of billions of euros which is known as the social impact bond network- it is supposed to invest in deepest community solutions worth replicating across europe- I have no faith that the EU has enough local scouts to discover what it has take some of us 20 years to collaboratively search


    writing this I am minded to introduce 2 additional characers paul komesaroff and ganesh devy - they are not often on email so will give longer bios if they reply- paul is the youth (global volunteers) most connecetd professor of medecine in australia who after 9/11 picked up phone and didnt stop until he had formed a global reconcliation network of about 1000 people from 100 cultures including 4 nobel prize winners; their first live meeting was hosted in london 2003 (keynoted mary robinson) then delhi's indira gandhi cross-cultral centre linked in to all of ganesh's gandhian networks on end poverty of nomad people and guested by india's then minister of info tech and media; the week after the tsumani hit; the network later continued its worldwide meets thru such places as sarajevo 2005 ... jordan 2010

    Great seeing to you yesterday

     

    The value chain analysis lady at USAID that I think it would be worth fixing a meeting with between you and me is Jeanne Downing . Her job title says Senior Enterprise Development Adviser. She has been coordinating a whole series of breakfast meetings on value chain analysis. The two cases I most recall were Bangladesh with CARE and Kenya with Dao (I first met Tony Barclay in Bethesda who used to run Dao because of BRAC correpondence - do you still stay in touch). It seems to me that Value Chain analysis is DC-speak for one of the main strategic interventions BRAC has led, as well as ultimately one of the main tools of all involved in transparency maps - 20 years of work on this as the antidote to what Price Waterhouse Coopers taught my peers to do in early 1990s makes me feel I have something that Sir Ronald Cohen needs as well as his technical adviser David Blood who also co-founded a sustainability investors Group with Al Gore. MIT's Berner Lee has also been working in London on community responsibility for social services but I havent found out on what. Back in London it is micro-energy groups we have highest level connections with through being co-activists of Economist shareholders and common interests of prince charles and bbc nature coorespodents and micelha palin (a huge cross-cultural supporter of bangladesh). Another fascinating charcater I need to find an excuse to interview in london is Mo Ibrahim who made his money with cell phones in an africa but sponsors the largest transparent leadership prize in africa, and links in his knowledge with MIT.

     

    . One of my foci in making a diary of what mobile can do to make the world better is what mobile interventions can microcredit networks now use to change the value quality producers get however small they are. The example of milk quality now being a mobile app is one with analogies in many other critical poor-producers markets cooperative certification. I recommend that someone at BRAC needs to get quadirs team updating this catalogue from its centre of practice in this sort of area, and its link into all the student entrepreneur competitions and capital channels that linkin to makiing MIT number 1 job creating university in the world (creating more jobs than all but 10 nations!). Sir Fazle's daughter http://legatum.mit.edu/TamaraAbed (dont understand why she is named as BRAC Diary) already appears at the legatum web as a friend of Legatum, and the link between mastercard as a huge supporter of Iqbal and as BRAC partner in Uganda may be key. The Mastercard foundation http://www.mastercardfdn.org/microfinance.htm is based in Toronto, and I look for an excuse to interview them

     

    I am trying to find out anything I can on CARE and Opportunity as potential the right side, and I abslutely want to demolish Accion's goodwill rankings (I do not accept impoverishing mexico microcredit to build an americal charities funds, and being headquartered in Boston I have serially seen accion trying to fund students to do macro things with micro). Unfortunaetly the former head of Accion went to work for Hilary, and I still havent worked out what damage that did.

     

    (Another interesting way into value chain and producers value is www.makerfaireafrica.com an annual expo of artisns in any core community sector - I know its convenor who also led the hosting of Ted Africa in Tanzania - he is actualy based in New York as much as he is based. To date the 3 maker faires have been strategically convened in Egypt, Ghana, and Kenya. It is interesting to me that the other link to value chain analsys in DC Karen Spainhower (whose paper on BRAC we published in teh special issue) says the 3 countries she is confident her group know how to make progress in are these three. Of course the other very micro intervention in produce markets is wholefoods. I look for any chance to interview mackey and still believe he is a natural sponsor for a Texas youth1000 but the grameen partner who sits on wholeplanet board wont help me (well until I get Monica to be more confident in asking that yunus partners in usa help each other and her)

     

    Technically I was a bit astonished to hear that BRAC might put its name to a brand without demanding that others who invest in that have to recognise the goodwill of BRAC as worth more than eg the money they put in. Maybe that also explains how Yunus first went wrong from his viewpoint with grameen phone. Someone like Branson wouldnt extend Virgin without requiring the brand's value be fully recognised by other investors- and apart from Hasina issue Grameen and BRAC remain the 2 most vital trust brands in deveolping world, and in effect in determining the future goals the net generation is empowered to produce. They are (or if microcreditsummit had been conceived correctly in 1997) as much signature brands of the knowledge networking age as Coca-Cola was of the distribute fast moving consumer goods age. While Sam Daley-Harris is one of the most modestly well-motivated and charming educators I ever expect to meet, his peer group's ignorance of the conflicts in media and economics has been part of the problem withy microcredisummit which could have been the worlds number 1 process of actioning millennium goals the net generation voted for as per my dads 1984 book http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html

    I continue to believe that Sam needs to meet you before he gets too far into shaping his new civil society network. Realistically that probably means offering to go up and down one day on the train to princeton. In the event that your diary can accomodate that please tell me. I wish to take time to do a part 2 of everything microcreditsummit has learnt. In the few weeks available to compile issue 3, Zasheem and I didnt get much help in trying to find the collaborative stories that 15 years of microcreditsummit could have bene networking round - but we thought it was best to put something in every delegates hand in spain and then work out who wanted to be reinterviewed on what they would have wanted to be in a sumary of all that has been action learnt so far. I guess the young leaders at www.mficonnect.com, Ingrid Munro, Peter Ryan of www.microloandfoundation.org are the three who may already agree to be active re-writers of the issue we handed out. At a European level I know most of Paris' movers and shakers of microcredit; I know the one person who went to spain from grameen 5 years ago and knows anoine who is doing good stuff in spain.At least Yunus made sure Queen Sofia knew who he is. I hope to become better linked to the EU's eastern links with microcredit- it is useful that Poland is a major linker in of this as my father was probalbly Polands number 1 international adviser of what economics spins in its first 5 years of separation from USSR. I hope to sponsor an eastern europe christmas happy hour in DC . I will also keep on at sam. Would love any advice you have- I guess this is a project with about a year to run.

     

    Fingers crossed that Sir Fazle's operation is a success. Focusing, I would say Monica Yunus is the one person I wish could be inttroduced to the abed family. Her attempt to unite artists and communities is at www.singforhope.org - her mentors include Placido Domingo. Her story is that until 9/11 she thought that focusing on being the best she could possibly be at opera was enogh; but since that moment she has asked how can the famous people she meet support upcoming artists to support spending any extra time they have cheering up communities - particularly schools and hospitals in new york region. This is a model I have been theoretically working on for 8 years. The West has contructed mass media to make the most artificial of stars so that youth no longer no who the real heroes are. I aslo want to end the extremely uneconomical advertising spot and get corporations with youth brands celebrating things like youth1000 jobs brainstorming - I try and make sure Monica is aware of these other colaboratively most interesting youth projects of yunus. and while she doesnt want it I assume that by 2020 what good ihe world assocaited with Yunus will mainly be linked in round her.

     

    Hoping Sir Fazle makes a good recovery - if you think he would ever want a private facilitaion in dialogue of what is the future connection between the goodiwll of brac and the leadership roles of his diffeernt family members I would gf course be delighted to travel to Dhaka to see if any of the case comparisoons I know of can help facilitate such discuision. And of course from my point of view anyone with the Abed name is most welome to join in being identified with 2010s being youths most productive decade www.yclub100.com if I can ever get that to be a club worth everyones while. The only way I can think of getting economics and media back to what my father thougth teir purose was is to keep on searching out those whose actions are compatible with this clubs mission of 2010s as youths most productive decade

    World’s Greatest Innovation – General Search

     

    It seems to me that if a person  and her or his founding team members are prepared  to commit a lifetime to asking people in most desperate need what they need most, and helping their families create jobs that serve more and more of those communal needs in a sustainable way then it is quite possible that a world’s greatest innovation will emerge during that lifetime pursuit

     

    I realize that there are multiple lens for judging what a world’s greatest innovation is form social to economic, from cultural to what past and future generations can do differently as humanity builds on each last generation’s progress in what may be very patchy ways while mans endeavours were geographically separated. By Grameen Social Business microcredit passes every mathematical test I - or any other mathematician my dad or I have been able to find - can transparently throw at it.

     

    Admittedly part of what has made the world’s first and largest bank owned by the poor sustainable is unique. The poor’s savings were invested in the greatest ever mobile telephone licence deal ever made because Grameen was there when the world’s mobile telephony industry assumed the world’s poorest nation would be the last to need its services while Grameen’s poorest women members demonstrated they were the first to be able to increase productivity with such a tool.  

     

    Does that mean Grameen is a one-off? No if you buy into the topline hypothesis. And no: because at least two other thriving examples exist – another in Bangladesh and one in Kenya.

     

    Equally nobody has a chance in reproducing this world’s greatest innovation unless:

    They mathematically what in its system design cant be changed (eg the ownership model), what you should only change if you can prove you have a different combination of conflicts to innovate through, and what would need to be changed because of a wholly different environment.

     

    The long-term first nature of exponential win-win-win impacts is valued by seeking a founding team which in some way can sustain as much energy as that which has taken Grameen’s founders 35 years of work. The good news here comes from a hypothesis that dad and I forecast 27years ago, . Probably around 2010 the annual doubling which moores law configured around capacity of silicon chips would move on focused knowlwedge network actions ob those life critical needs whose degrees of separation (from global expert to locally most needy) we most needed to reduce

    World’s Greatest Innovation- Person Exploration

     

    By age of 22 I had decided that if I possibly could I would spend my life’s work on some combination of mathematics, media and researching innovation.

     

    Why? Six generations of my family have worked in media or mediation. I had personally found maths what I liked best at school and at6 graduate and postgraduate levels of university. The mathematical part of projects can be quite lonely but seeing that the data applies actual innovations people need is more than sufficient reward.

     

    Also I lucked out: my first full time on turned out to be a project which created an hourly internet between 500 young psychologists. I was helping both to build content and to study how they used new media to learn, and indeed what behavioural responses improved or blocked their learning.

    Linda- I'd happily come up to boston any time if you could arrange 2 collab cafes for me
    1 is with you
    2 is a cafe with some people you are most working with but also with sloan and mit entrepreneurs- sloan sponsored lots of my dads writing and my dad's last big story was 10 times more economical banking is possible - as long as we "the net generation interacting with the poorest" dont call it microcredit but get on with open sourcing the more economical basic banking models of the triple-win models joy of economics for and by people:
    *grameen that is community (global village) based
    *jamii bora which is peer network based
    *brac which redesigns whole markets to be free from the bottom up
     
    we can blend these models and we have barely begun to map what heroic peoples banking china is already innovating - what happens to being economical when  you take an ebay tech for the poor and a banking model for the poor and have every poor person accessing free markets through zero cost mobile telecoms?
     
    THE GEN THAT DOUBLED SOMETHING EVERY YEAR FOR 40 YEARS
    -what will that something be- orwell's and wall street big brotherhood, or adam smith's and yunus'  future herstory of openly free markets? Youths choice: Exciting 2010s phew!
     
    like every crisis of opportunity there are before and after being networked models of the above; dad (and I believe peter drucker) would say once we have understood networking win-wins and digitals death of distance these models can make basic banking not only 10 time but 100 times more economical; thats why reaching out to the berners lees, the $100 laptop, the others in mit who are moibile networking entreprenurs is important - the purpose of basic banking integrates optimalisation of the productivity of every persons life by interfacing sustainable communiuty grounded systems (of health, clean food water energy, action elarning instead of examined stanadrads, amart medi ) around them
     
    basic banking uses the ideas of loans, savings and insurance both to invest in the human's being productive lifelong develoment expoentials , to hub how life-shaping knowledge multiplies in use and to design community grounded markets where the value of all the (net)work stays in the community or the peer network but in such a way that the market's equity is owned or wholly and ecologically participated in by the poorest or (as yet) least employed
     
    mobile operations (when a media is owned by the poorest - the huge innovation of grameen phone) can bring the cost of hosting markets and monitoring of financial transcations down to almost nothing
     
    you can download the first version of celebrate bangladesh which we launched at the economist boardroom at www.macrae.tv  - before yunus testimony in congress I would like to help fcitizens publish future capital celebration of
    1 kenya & s.africa
    2. east coast cities boston through dc
    3 spain
    4 paris
    5 glasgow
     
    of course anywhere else too but 1,4 and 5 like bangladesh are spaces to learn with
    2 and 3 most deperately need to celebrate connecting the actions and constitutions of 10 times more economical banking if europe and usa are to join in net gen's most exciting decade
     
    chris macrae DC:  301 881 1655 Family Foundations skype isabellawm
     
    Especially I copied these people for the following reasons (* means met at dad's party in Economist boardroom)
    *peter microloanfoundation obviously
     
    *jonathan and lesley - their 6000 entrepreneurs www.the-hub.net  in 50 shared city open spaces know most about hubs as a worldwide citizen opportunity to connect global villages and spent the last week seeing what projects lesley can volunteer first around ingrid and jamii bora
     
    *estelle corresponds out of paris whetre global social business partnering of yunus began and her dad open sources the most economical transactiin standard of mobile age
     
    3000 LEADER CLUB OF SB & 2010s MOST EXCITING DECADE
    *Bangladeshi freedom fighter-peacemakers zasheem, and *shafi and Bangladeshi vilage student *mostofa - we need a one pager on the microloanfoundation -mit view on how to make 2010s most exciting ; zasheem is developing the first issue of a journal of social business which includes such vision pledges and which my family is giving a loan to so it will be mailed to 3000 leaders yunus choses; if people have other ideas of leaders peer networks to mail to - of course we will loan for that too

    Bangladesh-home of 10 times more economical economics - 40th birthday 2011
     
    mostofa is spending next month in dhaka improving version 1 of celebrate bangaldesh as sustainability word's trade centre - a brochure we launched at the economist boardroom to celebrate dads life as well as his joy of linking in to the most economical economist in the world dr yunus - the person who can connect the human common sense of this debate across our region without even mention banking words is monica yunus www.singforhope.org  in new york; and sam is the person who is designing people summits so that you can celebrate society with or without the banking if we believe in designing constitutions and media around optimising every youth's lifetime productivity potentials; chris temple and alex are west and east coast students leading mfi connections
     
    alvin-toffler futurist alumn eric meade clarified (for me) in 2 hour collab cafe yesterday how the way to win the microcredit wars is not to mention microcredit just get on with impement banking models that are 10 times more economical/pursposeful- the good thing about inviting the net generation to play this game is that 99% of stuff big banking thinks matters professionally is utterly irrelevant once we innovate death of distance age in which we can all be virtually as well as geographically useful in serving each other
     
    alex is the nearest hub member in dc to me and raj the nearest compass member and charles skuba his professorial mentor who has also distributed 200 yunus books around georgetown mba students; alex 2 and *chris are east coast and west coast student connectors of www.mficonnect.com

    to members of journalistsforhumanity.com and saintjames.tv

    dear ... and ...  please could you choose time & place we can meet ...

    paris branch week of 20 april- I will be at same hotel (rue racine ) where you met sofia and me last time; if you want to come round and pick up photocopy of draft of the book please say- either we can meet for a coffee or i can leave copy of book at reception for you if I know you are coming


    I am trying to map various ways readers can mobilise round the book at http://www.worldcitizen.tv/ ; of course I am happy to post other suggestions; in fact I am most delighted if each city (with one or more alumni fan networks of yunus) has a particular collaboration action approach it wants to post. I am connecting about 400 youth from the 3 leading business schools in dc region to test market lots of different collaboration actions; once  I know some of these , I am more than happy to put youth chapter leaders in direct contact; I dont want to be in the way of anything that might open up do nows of sb collaboration 


    Back in 1993 with gary hamel's and ck prahalad's permission I coined the leadership practice of brand architecture to neighbour their family of strategic architecture tools - how to connect brands, identities, and component parts of marketing mix inside and across organsitions designed to network unique purposes. In any brand architecture one needs to:

    find the epicentre that wll sustain whatever gets cocked up by others

    double check that the epicenhtre can't be spoilt whatever others do


    the budget epicentre of sustainability decade 2010s with all due respect to hero yunus  (and I rate him the greatest media player of all time ) is grameen danone - so let's create  ning of that and map why the whole entrepreneurial world depends on what france collaboration networks - entreprenons, generation solidaire, vive la monde

     proposal for next book of worldclassbrands network (est 1989)

    World Class Brands 2.1 –Mediating 2010s as Sustainability Decade investigates 3 hi-trust and value multiplying leadership questions. Because these may not be popular with the powers that be, they need to be popular with everyone else. Failure to urgently ask and answer them now will have catastrophic consequences for the sustainability of all our children

     

    The three questions are what future world will exponentially compound IF

    1 we fail to search out the most purposeful organisations and fully value the system design that generates them

    2 we fail everywhere to act on the detailed lessons of wall street’s implosion

    3 we fail to see that collaboration is the new innovation advantage – that one which could empower networking technology to create jobs and go way above zero sum, rather than endlessly crash along the opposite direction

     

    What is both good news and bad news is that the person popularly voted as the world’s number 1 entrepreneur of our generation has demonstrated all the answers to the above questions. But even as his 70th birthday is globally celebrated , he is so focused on the extreme local challenges he needs to apply solutions to in order to save lives in his own region that he doesn’t realise the mount of open mass media intervention his alumni need to be helped to champion if the majority of  the world’s people are to know just-in-time that this choice of futures is now urgently at our gates. Or perhaps he does realise this, but assumes that those ambassadors for his work will economically take it to all corners of the globe whereas most of them don’t yet realise the openness and self-esteem required in this massive exercise of bringing down degrees of separation

    The triple whammy we worldwide beings of 2010s now face on behalf of all generations can be mapped like this

    Through my working life I have become more and more passionate about searching out the most purposeful originations in the world and understand  how their systems are designed. It seems to me that purposeful organizations are good for everyone, employee, customer, owner, societies they re in as well as your nation and world. I think that purposeful organizations need be part of education of every age group. Why aren’t they?

     

    I don’t think we need to get too clever about the search for purpose.. Its pretty common sense stuff. Buy yes perhaps it matters most when it comes sustanabolity issues where for example on out of 7 children born to day has almost no chance of  meaningful life- will be ill hungry abused and expected to go to works at 11 with almost no education.

     

    It is evident that the world we live in does not value purposeful organizations truly – and that may either be a measurement issue or  celebration issue. So for example if your wish to argue that there is a whole cluster of purposeful organizations that will be ignores because there is no way they can make high profits, I would argue that these organizations should get positive discrimination when it comes to publicity- and clearly they don’t – not even in the country I come from where  huge share of voice is constitutionally kept in public broadcasting.

     

    As it happens beginning round 1988 I started studying both metric and medic errors partly for my first sole authored book World Class Brands. I now have a huge catalogue of  metrics errors Roughly I will lay tem out according to 3 interconnected system properties that are mot measured properly

     

    Brand trust and goodwill

     

    Transparency

     

    Sustainability s  exponential dynamic whether you model that at a global market level, an individual organization system  or of some network of partners

     

    I was horrified by the invention of brand valuation algorithms in the late 1980s. They were constructed so that the brand's value went up the more it advertised. The reality is that heavily advertised organizations are usually the least purposeful – first because if you are highly purposeful you don’t need a  lot of advertising image. Secondly because the cost of minds has gone up faster than just about anything – to be ad led brand means to know that this company has already damaged the economics of its cost structure

     

    In service and knowledge economies, goodwill is worth more than all the things a company makes; and goodwill depends mainly on peoples relationships and trusts being purposefully kept but we are ruled over by a global accounting standard that decrees people are always costs to cut while things can be booked in as investments. This is probably the greatest maths errors that global accounting numbers make though there are many others. The mindset of global accounting may be the most non-systemic of all professions. For example, it is part of the professions ideology that they are counting up the past to the current second but never beyond. This has weird and sad effects. Firstly any speculative manager can make more profit in its last quarter by cutting something which damages quality but whose  impact on sales is lagged. egg if I make chocolate biscuits and because chocolate is the most expensive ingredient, I halve chocolate input, then my costs will come down and in the current period this consumer probability wont find out. So I make more profit for that period while making it almost certain I lose future sales. In the old days we used to call this milking of a brand, and any marketer who deliberately did this would be fired. But today global accounts spreadsheet do this all the time; its almost as if they re so number focused they don’t even know they are milking.

     

    One of the worst things to do with a brand and its goodwill is to make strong promises which you have no capability to keep. Te gap between brand as image and brand s earning its trust has got greatest every year since the start of brand valuation algorithms and managing by spreadsheet numbers. Its no wonder that surveys how trust is plummeting. This is a vicious spiral ; and yet for 22 year's that I have bee raising it most people shrug their shoulders. So what? Well ultimately we end up min so much untruth that people cant see the woods from the trees- clearly wall street couldn't in its recent meltdown

     Coming soon more on transparency and sustainability’s abuse by major professions

    l;ive futurist coorespodnence sample spring 2010Dear Eric
    Fantastic meeting you today at CGDEV at the memorial talk for Richard Sabot. Alvin Toffler's work - eg Future Shock and Powershift - is a great inspiration to me and all who network optimism's permissions to action. Would it be possible to follow up with a meeting at your office?
    We are starting second Yunus bookclub 1000 in a month. His DC launch booktalk is 14 May -university sponsor Robert H Smith Business School. I believe his networks are actioning the futures we need and Bangladesh has proven  a microeconomics system design that can both restore community sustainability and make the most of collaboration networking - something that hasn't begun to empower the productivities that people like Alvin, Peter Drucker and my father foresaw as possible http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html
    This is a typical extract from Dr Yunus new book
    Dr Yunus 70th Birthday wishes for Sustainbility 2010s 

    End Poverty & Systems that Crash or Trap

    End carbon in our waters, air, food and machine's energies

    End hunger, and poor distribution infrastructures

    End premature death and ever higher cost of health

    End wars and govs that spend 20% of the peoples on arms

    End borders as barriers to webs of people mobilising productivity

    End college-less children and universities without job creating microentrepreneurs

    We have to believe in our wish list if we hope to make it come true. We'll have to create appropriate concepts, institutions, technologies, and policies to achieve our goals. The more impossible the goals look, the more exciting the task becomes. Fortunately, for us we have entered an age when dreams have the best chances to come true. We must organise the present to allow an easy entry into the future of our dreams. We must not let our past stand in our way.

    If you were to ask me who has the best chance of coming closer to the reality of 2030, without pausing for a second I would say that the science fiction writers would be far closer than the expert analysts. The reason is very simple. Experts are paid to make forecasts on the basis of past and present, but events in the real world are driven by dreams of people"

    learning with my maternal grandad
    my maternal grandad sir kenneth kemp was a bar of london barrister who fought, and over 25 years came to work with, another Bar of London barrister - Mahatma Gandhi. Granddad's favourite motto when I was four and he was soon to die; nothing is impossible. What was he mentored on by Gandhi  mainly in the city that was then called Bombay? That most innovative type of system transformation -the human relationship and hi-trust network practices needed when a country's people are being poverty chained by your own profession - in gandhi's and grandads case the colonial laws of Empiredom.

    June 29 Meeting dhaka
    we are trying to invite 2 groups of people
    - those with extraordinary influence for community-rising replications and who can help dr yunus with a breakthrough
    and youth or others who want to network social businesses as a lifelong pursuit;
    we aim to map and identify 7 areas of community sustainability potential compasses for microsummits) around which we catalogue everything and identify who's interested in bridging one or more areas
    1 banking and financial services
    2 health
    3 energy and agriculture
    4 vocational and network-age education to first job
    5 media and channels including internet and mobile and hosting large meeting formats, and also micropublications -eg we have at least 1 publishing house concept we pilot in dhaka before trying to get western publishers to do a glpssy version iof 
    6 SMBA or transparent professions -metrics and system franchising maps of compound sustainability investment and purposeful goodwill multiplication as opposite to quarterly monetary extraction; microeconomics as the opposite and only sustainable way round system to macroeconomics
    7 government that empowers place/peoples 
    both myself and my father who deputy edited The Economist have professional interests in areas 5 and 6 though as future history writers our 1984 book caused us to search out most of the same sustainability compasses http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html
    I am currently 'certain" we will have an influential opinion leader on energy - the BBC broadcaster Paul Rose; and 90% certain we will have someone extraordinary on education - probably one of the founding 4 of India's and the world's largest school http://cmseducation.org an extraordinary social business
    On media we will have someone from Vivian Montaigu De Norris'  YunusMovie in paris - I believe you shared a luncheon table with her at worldcongress -the belief Vivian has in Dr Yunus is unlike anyone I have met
    I am waiting to see if one of TheGreenChildren pop group can come but it sounds as if until their album is released they cant make any appointments. I will be asking heads of various Grameen-related organisations like sam daley harris and vidar jorgensen  to come but expect they will say that they will find out what happens but not directly participate. American subnetworks of Yunus are in my opinion over-competitive so I keep on offereing inviotations to colaborate but am used to being turned down.
    My friends and I will keep trying in other areas. For example my family know the former head of the royal society of medicine and he is looking at a future capitalism partnership but he may come up with a delegate to June 29.
    Among youth I am trying to get a reprsentative from key university cities including Boston New York, DC, LA as well as Europe. A particular focus this year is the USA because of both the banking crisis and the opportunity and threat that every yes we can network that Obama stands for will get distracted.
    We want to ensure that on June 29 that we either have a delegate or at least a leaflet of links on every live youth network Dr Yunus has built. Unlike the searches form social business and future capitalism, the chapter 11 invitations of Dr Yunus book are behind plan, but critical to scaling up and replication strategies. We also invite youth to voice what isnt working for them yet to join in
    Saskia we'd love to have someone from your networks particpating on june 29; if that's not possible let's make sure we have all the lnks to what you are doing in a leaflet we can give all our delegates
    I should say that Mostofa Zaman has been working on youth connections with yunus secretariat almost since the Nobel prize. He was one of the origins of the yunusforum request by citizens in many countries to connect around Dr Yunus. He has been specifically briefed to identify 5000 Youth ambassadors who want to help replicate social business franchises between bangladesh and anywhere in the world; coming from Bangladeshi villages he also knows just about every different business diviision inside grameen and can help match the interests people bring to june 29 with whom in Grameen they should most know of; we hope that simlarly we can help make contacts in BRAC or any of the other Dhaka institutes that match people's deepest concerns.

    12 year olds' ideas on social business innovations
     understanding is that dr yunus wants youth & anyone to pitch any social business idea to him and other microcredit leaders on june 29 http://yunusforum.net http://futurecapitalism.com
    here is an interesting 12 year olds question
    what makes a place successful economically?
    dad and I and scots since adam smith and james wilson (founder of The Economist who died of there being no oral rehydration in calcutta when he was tring to dismatle raj economics in calcuta back in 1863?) have always assumed productive and healthy people, open education, clean natural resources- dr yunus lectre to glasgow university on what adam smith actually said confirms this
    if we microeconomits are right where is a 12 year old's first book on economics? - nowwhere! - why not write one and at the same time make a wiki pedia out of it - decent social business opportunity!
    just one idea worth pitching on june 29 http://yunusforum.net - do come or tell us ideas you want pitched in absentia

    20 april 2009

    Dear Sir Keith

     

    Wonderful speaking to you on telephone today- here’s the dr yunus good news story.

     

    My father and I feel that networks connected with Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus are mapping the most exciting entrepreneurial breakthroughs using the internet. They have already reduced the cost of basic banking by ten fold - making it possible for the poorest to get loans to create work, as well as communally collaborating on ending poverty. Father and I bought 1000 copies of Dr Yunus new book at the start of last year since we felt that it is the only one that truly values the compound impacts of sustainability investment.

     

    Last year we hosted a lunch for dr yunus in London and this year I am arranging for a 69th birthday party for dr yunus in Dhaka http://yunusforum.net  . He particularly wants students around the world to understand that there is an alternative system design forward to the macro way of Wall Street’s big banks. Since he was awarded the Nobel prize he has been challenging most resourced organizations to partner with his deepest grassroots service networks, and celebrate the outcomes with youth. These future capitalism  partnerships guarantee no loss to the corporations involved but any surplus of the joint social business is reinvested in replicating the franchise. For example, with the French water multinational Veolia’s capability to filtrate out arsenic, Grameen has just opened up drinking water sold at 80 times less cost than any commercial water supplier.

     

    In effect Dr Yunus is offering corporations a far better way to global brand than spending money just on advertising.

     

    Health partnerships are the overall top focus of Dr Yunus with about five signed up his first 12 months of launching future capitalism – including GE : imaging, Mayo Clinic: training, Pfeizer: health insurance. I log up new partnerships that I hear of at http://www.yunuspartners.com. The two attachments are talking points which Dr Yunus inspired 2000 delegates with at last weeks http://www.worldcongress.com including details of his progress on $2 health insurance which is at http://www.grameenkalyan.org

     

    It would be fantastic if anyone comes to your mind in Britain who might be interested in exploring the idea of collaborating with Dr Yunus’ health vision and partnerships further.  I can either put them in contact with the most relevant people in Bangladesh or if there are any young researchers of others who would want to join in our day’s brainstorming with dr yunus on June 29, of course they would be most welcome

     

    I have researched innovative organizations all my life and never come across one with people doing so much with so little as grameen. They still treat the internet as a blessing that can change every way that knowledge is connected unlike many organizations in the west.

     

    Sincerely

    You can ask Mostofa any details you like. He has been working directly with dr yunus leadership secretariat on youth outreach on surrounding interview/field visits program for Dhaka june 29 as announced at http://yunusforum.net . This has been exponentially increasing since the Nobel prize when citizens around the world asked dr yunus to develop forum social network spaces with them and where dr yunus prioritised undergraduate city centres as one area to collaborate with. Dr Yunus has spent about 50 days a year connecting with youth since the nobel prize; june 29 is an opportunity to debrief what the future impacts of this are from all hemispheres of interaction and social business networking tools, and content resources eg http://yunus10000.com  (host some good news dialogues) http://bankabillion.org (mobile) http://muhammadyunus.org (leadership choices that adam smith might have expected open business universities or world service media could debate) http://www.grameenkalyan.org (health)  http://www.gshakti.org (energy)


    I am just a mathematician, and both my dad and I have applied our lives mainly to crises in media models. I was fascinated by dr yunus future capitalism book as it is the only open publication with sustainability investment metrics congruent with my dad  http:///www.normanmacrae.com  and my's compound/systemic standards http://erworld.tv  not just in banking but all major areas of sustainability . It shows that after the nations first third of a century, Bangladesh is well on the way to inviting the world to join in 10 times more economical banking * health * education * media * energy ..see also the new publishing genre innovationg collaboration that Bangladeshi networking friends of Dr Yunus launched at start of this year..and  the netfuture scenario of compound opportunity of ending digital divides of dad and my 1984 book summary in future history section of normanmacrae.com -specific 1984  forecast 21st C sustainability would need a reality tv program on poverty museum apprenticeships co-produced by DD and BBC, hosted by a nobel laureate and connected to internet searches for 30000 replicable community rising projects by interactive viewers


    My friends and I are trying to invite as deeply concerned people as possible who either know my family's microeconomic models in these practrice areas or who are leading youth's collaborations bottom-up including eg obama yes we can networks to converge on dhaka at june 29 orv who support the bangladeshi national strategy as scripted by alumini of people like yunus and fazle abed. Unfortunately USA yes we can self-confidence of american youth is being shredded with every falso move or delay in rectifying the corruptions wall street reigned and still reigns over. With George Bush being the 21st C's Kaiser Wilhelm, we are now probably at the last crossroads in the war between microeconomics (sustainability) and macroeconomics (which gandhi/einstein/von neumann to name but 3 all warned would compound a unsustainable planet at local levels. A crossroads impacting a whole generation or probably as Einstein anticipated our whole species survival.


    If we can get the right sort of first reunion, perhaps we can make this an annual day after birthday party for dr yunus (this is his 69th year) and all who agree with his national startegy of bangladesh as number 1 sustainabuility investor/replicator/networker. I am sure far motre capable people than me exist to invite people to collaboration celebrations ensuring we dont return to old wall street's normalcy, but then playing with global branding concepts is what I have done for 20 years since my 1989 book world calss brands. Its quite possible to experiment on big ideas with as low cost as experimenting on small ideas. why wouldnt the next generation want to make poverty museums their collaboration space race if only elders encouraged them not to lurk now 


    I will bcc you on a few mails that show how our homework is developing, or please ask more specific questions


    My maternal grandad was britain's main barrister interfacing with gandhi over the quarter century from the 1920s that removed top-down colonial profwessions- this makes a 6th area of collaboration the social MBA because currently MBAs are destructing worldwide sustainability as fast as the English were destructing Indian communities in the 1920s


    Do you know people like Ganesh and Modjtaba who have had to hear my stories on that topic since 2004 when I gave a Delhi talk (the coming wars between goodwill and badwill networks -what would a brand architecture for peace look like - co-sponsor sunil's company in india) at Indira Gandi Centre as part of the annual celebration of the global reconciliation network.


    cheers

    a response to sir martin at FT's old capitalism blog

    My exponential disagreement with Sir Martin reaches new heights. Everything to do with trust-flow, communal goodwill and transparency of information, of which brands are a pivotal connector, has been misvalued by Global Accounting's Light Brigade who measure how much money they take out every quarter to the exclusion of how much productive and demanding sustainability is being compounded into the future's purpose of the identity (brand) or network identity (worldwide sector and/or brand partnering architecture). Back in 2000 Brookings issued a report "unseen wealth" forecasting that whilst the missing maths of trilliondollaraudit went unaccounted for, risk would compound ever more bubbles - as we saw with dotcoms, andersen, enron, other ponzi schemes, corporations that claimed they could not afford to be the first to lead industry sector responsibility, housing, banking, rating agencies, insurance. Meanwhile what wasn't invested in while these short-term rulers towered down on us includes healthcare, green energy, education, jobs created at community levels. In the midst of this mass media has played a depressing  and distractional role that has often gone way beyond inconvenient truth. Obama has said we have tried top-down global and our lesson is it does not work. The idea that the pendulum will swing back to the old normalcy seems wholly unreasonable -and in these times ungracious - to communicate. ChrisMacrae.com

    part of a 20 year debate on how the maths of brand valuation did not need to value image over reality, speculator value over shareholder integrating value, Andersen-logo campaigns over identifying 21st century responsiblity of the big 5 accounants,...

    thanks Bill, and a new question - are life insurers (MET, PRU, HIG, LNC, GNW, AIG) on the brink


    there's certainly a lot to like about the format of the chrismartenson presentation but thanks too for the heads up of being wary about the motivation


    one of the other pennies that dropped today was people really need to search through not just the immediate barons of wall street who are trying everything they can to influence (I would say pervert) democracy of treating bankrupt organisations as bankrupt by calling what they own too big to fail but the indirect barons


    it wasnt obvious to me until it was mentioned that one of the biggest owners of junk banks is probably warren buffett - so even those who I guess many of us have previously assumed were sensible investors as opposed to speculators may not be worth trusting in this of all risky moments


    I guess I fera for Obama because I am not sure he has anyone in his inner circle capable of searching this independently

    Chris,

    There is a guy named Chris Martenson at www.chrismartenson.com who has something called the Crash Course.  It is about 15 – 16 video chapters that provide an excellent explanation of how the monetary system works and how what is happening was not only predictable but the only possible outcome of our monetary system.  The presentation is well done and as dispassionate as one can be about what is going on.  So I would recommend the Crash Course.

    Unfortunately, I don’t subscribe to the conclusions that Martinson draws from his analysis.  I interviewed him on my radio show and contributed to his website for a while but then discovered that he is into separating the responsible people from the so-called irresponsible people.  I found that thinking reprehensible not only because it is divisive but also because he knows better.  So I recommend the Crash Course but not the content of the rest of the site.  Frank Sinatra could sing but you probably wouldn’t have wanted him as a friend – and so it is with Martenson.

    I recall a conversation that we had several months ago when I was saying to you that I didn’t think the time was right for organizing because there were not enough people who really understand what is going on.  I think that is still the case but I don’t think it will be very long before there are enough folks for there to be critical mass.  The question then becomes – what should we do.

    My sense is that it is more about changing individual behavior than it is about mass rallies and demonstrations.  We are in a debt based monetary system.  If people begin to live within their means and begin to save money that will fundamentally change the system. It’s not dramatic but at the end of the day it is really the only thing that will foster change.

    Geithner’s plans will fail because they don’t make any sense.  The monetary system hasn’t made any sense for some time but there was no transparency.  Now, even if you don’t understand the details of the plan you know it is just more of the same.  So while we are wasting time with this kind of nonsense I’m not that concerned because it isn’t going to work.  The question is whether or not Obama understands in his heart of hearts that it isn’t going to work.  He will have a small window of time to pivot and moved towards a saner system.  To be successful he will have to elevate the art of politics to heights that we have never seen before.  I guess time will tell.

    All the best,

    Bill Sharon
