Humanise AI twitter what can those who value sustainability development generation tdo about biggest missing knowledge curriculum as moore's law connects trillion times moore than moon race 1960s? - join us in creating AI for people at twitter: my father Norman Macrae started hosting 100 AI (Artificial Intelligence) debates 60 years ago first 3 debates on humanising tech: 1) what if everyone had a pocket calculator; 2) if man can get to moon with new tech, is any mission impossible,3)  if gorrdon moore is correct that electronic engineers will deliver trillion timkes moore silicon chip capaioty by 2030 (100 fpld each decade) what are humans greatest gpals to make sure we have used the tech for? here's a rough chronology of what happened as far as our diaries at the Economist and elsewhere shopw- please tell us what we have miossed and how can we turn debates of whats possible with ai into a curriculum every teacher and girl of evgery age joins in- we use rough dating system inspired by moore BG before 1970s; 0G 1970s; 1G 1980s; 2G1990s; 3G 2000s; 4G 2010s;  5G2020s -compare the world record jobsand richest  leadership learning curves wrj Maso Son; wrj jeff bezos

1962 PG1 what if everyone had a pocket calculator

0G work between 1972-1976 at uk national development cehtre of computer based learning concluded any nation that did not put 1% of its budget into oipen sourcing online learning starting with maths practice would seriously disadvantage its youth

by 1G 1984 our book the 2025 report concluded need for sea change in education in which everyone is valued as lifelong learner teacher and ai teacher training contributor 

AI as super statistician- map back what big data and AI can do that humans could never do with slide rulers and logs - 1984 our dreams frorv 2010s included all cancer charities converging their data so ai could analyse patterns at far more details than ever before relevant to cutsomised intyerventions- remember the maths finding of einsteain- when man says his science cannot innovate anything more what he means is he cant discover thigs until he models at a more micro level of dynamics than it has previously possibe

what we got from 4G decade of 2010s: today ai can decision make live on big data for vested interest clients of the world's largest chatbox facebook -extreme nationalism and within that racism are typical vested interests and ironically while obama was the first president to stream live with facebook it seems that facebook grew fastest by selling mostrly to hoghest bidders for its data

from start of 2G decade, around 1990 personal computer netwirking turned multinational corporations into globa- previoulsy every quarter decision-making was made by national leadership teams now by reduing the metric to how much money did we make a global board took over- americans shouldnt blam the chiense for taking ovger manufactiring jobs- the glpbal accou8tning constultants americas global companies used computed labor cots sad redesigned work flows- as john mackey says the big issue - eacg market lost sense of pirpose beyind money making- if you are in a global phrma comapy is ypour forst duty health or money making- if yoi are in food is your first duty nutrotion or mpoey making? - the computer doesnt6 ask about purpose it mines the dt for the goal its been programmed to execute 

understanding intergenerational exponentials versus the shortest term persuasion metrics- whats true media and trust verus fake media acon controling people be fear and negtaove emotions 


 PG2 if we can race to the moon with new tech what cant we doPG3 if moores law is correct what will do with 100 tiems moore tech each decade to 2030 when we have trillion times moore than needed to race to moom when 20 most powerful leaders meet -  do they understand how to debate AI       
 1990 PG12G1 how to help every millennial team up as nstatistically confindent not to be trapped by fake news and vested interest groups- note there is no need for everyone in a ilennial team to be a great statistician of tech wizard - we needed to design connections bteween people in commuity trusted mpost with the wizard of tech and whats the stats humanly for

 1000-1500 the last time west and east sustained win-win trades

MARCO POLO - how east=west traded win-wins - huge relay across Eusraia continent and seas : med , gulf and china' spices and artistic silks (valued around artisan designs) as curencies apprecating further you traded them; economis correlated with population sizes:  one quarter mainly china around East Coastal Belt; one quarter mainly India around South Coastal belt; Chinese leaders intersted in cinsciiusness knowhow that transfred from india and nepal through china to japoan- with local translations by time it reached jaon it became zen; med sea thriving diversity of trade between europe afrrica and asian nations and gateway to silk road; italians wealthies traders learnt to love investing in the arts from china 

SAINT FRANCIS - of all the european networks francis was valued most wherever his misisonary networks went- not so much for strict6 religious worship but becaujse of 3 goals: live and learn with poorest; males value nature; female clares network build last mile helath service particularly for mothers and infant care 

1500-1946 the mercantile-colonisation era whose conflicts climaxed with 2 world wars 2 navigation sicoveries - new world to west of europe, possibility to circumnavigate africa and reach south eurasian coast depended on big ships of war with press-ganged or enslaved crews as journey so long and dangerous- captains needed to dictate trade on arrival and soon it was easier to colponise places- the british against other n eurepans mainly won the battle to do this in south asia - over time colonisation reduced india's quarter of the old world economy to about a twentieth , and later around 1860 China chose to close itself down to worlkd trade for 100 hyeras rather than acceot the British proposition that it accept iopium as curency for trading china's sort after spice, silk and pottery


Lessons Scot Adam Smith 1748-1776 was the furst to clearlypiblish/ map why colonisation was an evil - he also criy=ticised education systems designed around the empire bureaucratic values.Fortunately Ameruica freed itself from colonisation but not so Asia. Indeed as Britain became first to pionner industial age of steam engines the opportunity for a big empire to extract ever more from colonies multiplied Modern innovations of railways, gas, electricity, utilities including telecokm used in Empire's home nations but not in colonies accept where adminstratirs ruled from

Ultimately colonisation was the root cause of the world wars and well as how about 8 major economies had developed by the 1930s.

Gandhi, Through the second part of his 80 year life circa 1860s to 1947 came ti the frealistaion that his progfession Britiesh Empire law was the system trapping his peioples in poverty. He sought to completely redesign vocationl aeducation before chalenging Britian head on for Independence. His Tolstoy Farm in south africa built a sort of early teen agricultural colege where families could also live and work which renewed the ashram model when he retirned to India. In India Marao Montessori helped gandhi designe vilage schools 

Keynes (last chapter general thoery of employment money and interest) also built on Adam's logics and sought to require the economic profession to do no harm by making 2 goals the hioppocrativh oath lof sus=ystem design - end poverty and design communities so families can see their yoyth's ways forward to better livelihoods. 

1-10 times more tech (than 1946) the era of racing to the moon 

The world war had avanced technogies of nuclear and potentially of computing. Von Neumman spent as much time a he could on computing having gtidied up nuclear sceince to keep Americ in the lead os this 

At the conclusion of world war 2,Britain had sued up its finaces and hurredly withdrew from colonies leaving behind chaotic borders it had often used to contain separated faiths (ie not mapped to help the newly independnet nations connect ppositive world gtrade flows). USA did help the defetaed Germans and Japanese reboot (both actually had world class enginners).  British and other ex-euopean colonies got little assiciance in enginnering and relvant sklls,  

Japan became the great hiop for leading world tgrade ebyond colonial hemisphere divisions and through win-wins. Its already great engineerrs were coached by deming- they advanced engine quality, cilvil engineering eg bullet trains and logistics tools fro container ports, and microedlectronics. 

It needed both Japans microelectronics and vion eunammns computers to e]able JFK to set the greatest national cooperation gaol ever - get to the moon in udner a decade.

Dear China, About those Solar Tariffs...

January 26, 2018

by Sarah Ladislaw


This week the Trump administration took a decision to raise tariffs on solar cells and modules imported into the United States. The decision was based on a complaint brought under Section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974. As was discussed in a recent Energy 360 podcast on the topic, make no mistake, this was not a finding that China had conducted unfair trade practices; rather, it was pure protectionism intended for a very narrow domestic constituency

 In an exclusive report by Andrew Quentson at Coin Journal – Ant Financial, the online payments affiliate of Alibaba and the world’s second most valuable private technology company with a market cap of more than $60 billion, have announced they are rolling out Blockchain technology for payments.

The technology will be first applied to Alipay’s donation platform to improve transparency and provide a trust mechanism with each payment and spending of donations recorded on the Blockchain.

Ant Financial and the Microfinance Management arm of China’s Foundation for Poverty Alleviation (CFPA), China’s largest and most influential non-governmental organization that specializes in poverty alleviation, have reached a strategic co-operation agreement to expand a model that takes targeted measures to help people lift themselves out of poverty with the aid of the internet and now blockchain tech to more than 300 national and provincial counties within three years.

These are the most exciting times to be alive- the knowhow and investments of three generations (grandparents, parents, half world under 30 ) are determining the sustainability of the human race- there is so much work to be done now- not in a decade's time, that will be way too late

what we need to do is look at whole markets - energy, health care, education ... - as if they are jigsaws- we know how these were globally designed during the carbonised industrial age, what could they look like in an age where we have to start all over again with clean energy but can give youth the adavantage of thousands of times more computing and communications tech than we had at the end of world war 2

Its a fact that if you want to design beautiful new jigsaw pieces you will gain hugely from makimg friends with eastern youth - from 1946 successful places and generations in the east had to innovate things that the age of western industrial empires had not.

Take one beautuiful example- in bangladesh from 1972 they worked

on the jigsaw of bottom-up health services; start with the idea that health services

have say 20 different parts - 2 of which are very expensive: surgery and the world's newest pharma drug; 

brac in bangladesh started assembling all the other parts - one quarter of infants' lives could be saved by mothers learning oral rehydration; in fact brac and collaboration partners put so many last mile health servant pieces together that they raised the average living age from the low 30s to the 60s by 1996; you should note that brac networked mothers in rural villages without electricity so none of the most expensive western health services were applicable anyhow; 

since 1996 microsolar and  mobile phones have started bringing new possibilities to upgrade the brac village health care system - but the first lesson is that bangladesh grew a 150 million person nation from poorest in the world with a health service that cost 10 times less of a place's budget than rich nations health services ; in the process it created local jobs, it broke through generations of illiteracy -and brains that were underdeveloped due to lack of nutrition-  empowered girl leadership of community services in such a way that bangladesh is now also one of the most innovative creators of digital solutions;

brac owns the largest cashless banking system in the world

so that it can invest in girls ending poverty and leading collaboration around many of sustainability goals deepest experiments 


the second lesson is that everyone linked in by brac from its poorest women 

customers to the village communites they serve to expert professionals including financiers loves learning by doing in the contexts that locally exist; brac's education system is in some ways as remarkable as its health service; its not just 10 times more economic, it delivers intergenerational progress that no classroom only based education systemn ever could - brain science shows that from just before adolescence we are made to experimentally learn .. that at least is how bangladesh girls dreams lifted up way more than half the sky in regenerating the places the industrial age most excluded  

greater bay

watch out for the greater bay area - ie shenzhen-hong kong - joint research interests such as blochchain

Entrepreneurial Revolution's 50th annual celebration for ending poverty goes to china-why?
Together Belt Road infrastructures and ecommerce end the 2 main systemic causes of poverty: 
  • non-transparent value chain
  • being disconnected from trade routes 

good news; this is win-win-win model, the more who benchmark it the more poverty ends all around world; better news

china will soon have 700 million middle class (half young) - they are being celebrated where they demand brands who clarify how they sustain whole value chain

Less than half a century ago a quarter of the world's people decided hiding behind a wall stopped them from worldwide communications with other great entrepreneurs. Today Beijing's rejuvenation of China and allplaces East (eg one belt one road) is ponying up to the responsibility of designing quarter billion brilliant girls livelihoods by 2030- china realises that most sustainability goals are youth collaboration (open education, society. wizard tech) goals; eg chinese women under 30 cant cure the world's climate or health service crises on their own but if global youth friend and translate with them: yes youth and Industrial Revolution 4 can . why else would humans be spending over 1000 times more on communications tech now than in 1946?2 Dhaka empowered bangladeshi (and the world's) poorest village girls to be the greatest social networkers the world has ever seen TWICE - from 1972 for real out of 60 person vilage hubs with no electricity and no telecoms; from 1996 at start of Industrial Revolution 3- universal access to mobile text and talk news update bangladesh have just succeeded in 2012's boldest 5 year plan - building the developing world's largest cashless bank owned by and run for the poorest

 100 ways to value multiply livelihoods oif half of world udner 30:

1 the english language remains the most valuable open source skill ; that learning this second language isnt much more affordable for chinese and global youth to practice is not just a lost opportunity of  worldwide development but a crisis for british/commonwelath networks (eg british council , british aid) -

2 conversely another peer to peer opportunity of conscious inner city hubs- benchmark how to maximise collaboration value at TGoodM === missing any opportunity to learn chinese  as a second language or to develop friendship exchanges with the peoples and place that is 99% likely to determine the big collaboration successes or failures (including extinction) of the human race in 21st C -again inner city hubs of supercities should seize the job creating opportunity of maximising hi-trust communication with Chinese people  ;

3 one challenge of ending extreme poverty is that is that designing a system solution to help people a few rungs up the poverty ladder rather than the very bottom is always more short-term metriceconomical for an individual insitution but note the risk of that logic is always leaving the biggest innovation challenge to someone else; today the one person alive who has always linked down effective efficient and expanadble solutions to the very poorest is Sir Fazle Abed - making sure his replicable solutions prolong beyond this 81 year old's life is getting really urgent; problematically "see The Economist it wasnt microcredit it was brac" over 95% of us professors and other experts have never begn to know how to share the health, food security, banking, and education channel microfrachises bangladesh village womens used to end the most extreme poverty and extreme disadvantages on most sustainbility goals is a huge opportunity for everyone linked in to education summits such as wise and education commission whose leadership know that half of the under 30s world will be unemployable by 2030 unless education is totally transformed;  it is to be hoped that Sir Fazle also becomes china's next international hero since no network can celebrate sir fazle s missing knowledge curriculum with as much true love as China's QuarterBillionGirls ; not only did sir fazle acept the chalenge of extreme poverty solutions but the sequence he chose was that critical to building health and other systems from starting with nothing; so the first solution he scaled across rural vilages was oral rehydration- saviong quarter if infants from death by training (illitetare) vilage  mothers to serve bolied water sugar and salts mixed in the right proportion; this was the lowest cost life saving cure of modern times; having gained a reputation for the #E's and extreme affordability BRAC became the partner of choice for those who wanted to do the greatest good with their funds or skills- 


4 the systems logic of jack ma and sir fazle abed alumni of SME (small medium enterprise inclusion) every global market chain will prove necessary if the human race is to unite around sustainability of all our beings in time -this is a big subject, market by market -one way to POP (Priority Option Poor) is to benchmark successful leapfroging models of universal mobiule access - IR3 universal text mobile, IR4 universal smart mobile as these ended digital divides in a way that Industrial Revolution 2 the web pre-mobile could not do down with the very poorest.

4.1 we know that resilience disaster prevention is a natural leapfrog when enough people in every village have mobile connectivity for first time;

4.2 we know that  cashless banking like mpesa and bkash is the first of a series of financial leapfrogs  -its pretty scary for youth livelihoods of any nation  developing or developed to miss the unique window of opportunity to preferentially apply the new technolgy to teh smalest and most entrepreneurial - nite how doing digital brings down the coist of keepoing financial records by orders of magnitude;

4.3 we know that microsolar, for thise previously not on any electricity grid,  is the first of several go-green energy leapfrogs; and villages ending dependence on kerosene also use boiogas cooking stoves as another early green leapfrog;

5 however china g20 August 2016 (being the first G20 summit after the UN's 2015 launch of sustainability's 17 goals - upgraded many more leapfroging models

5.1 such that those who have studied Jack Ma's big data small system platforms can access - see jim kim's testimony on now the world bank has to rereview every projects its ever done,

6 Additionally Xi Jinping has maped the physical infrastructure models hemispheres need so that 21st C real trades are accessible to everyone in way that Industrial Revilution 1 was not.

7 In addition when you note that half the world's people live on 10% of land within 3000 miles of beijing it becomes clear why China has to be the collaboration epicentre of winning humanity's race to go green. 

In the annual G20 cycle peoples networks do the homework for the celebrations on the 2=day world staga where leaders meet. Already green finaance appears to have emerged as an additional network thanks to China's biiding

8 Mapping back what G20 leaders celebrate at Argentina 2018 offeres great opportunity to benefit from up to a billion Franciscan minds ( the culture that innovated POP Preferential Opition Poor in the late 1960s

9 With teh world converging in India G20 in 2019, the opportunity for celebrating the greatest open tech apps for the poorest must not be missed

11 While China G20 (Hangzhou Consensus) communicated China's message that most sustainability goals are youth collaboration goals it is happy to partner any country's youth in- clearly ecver China-India opportunity to job co-create with the 2 largest youth populations in the world and the majority of growth in worldwide econoies of our era.

When you build on the map above , more meta- opportunities emerge

12 WE expect the legacy of the late great Presodent Kalam to finally get a full celebration at G20 - no leader ever gave ore to belkief that youth are a counytry's future -indde Kalam's last words were on that. For years now wileard technolgist Nilekani (the billioonaire? founder of Infosys) has joined Kalam in debating 2020 visions for India - they sound as if they will snap with where Jack Ma was to help empower small enterprsies futures

13 Blockchain (which gurus like Don Tapscot see as critiical to IR4 as universal smart mobiles)   1  can activate transparency and much better value (cost ofintermediary agents) in any intergeneration smart contract markets subject to some provisions sucj as universal indentification of the poores (india lead); philanthrop and aid and green fiace are exampels of blended markets where blockchain may bring a revolution -note we already value teh ssutainability charity model from bangladesh more than the aid one in many sectirs; alongside this the smartest american student app network we have seen in sustainability goals spoace is give directly with its big data small analyses conditional on poorest dientification;

14 From Fintech to edutech to .. Bransto regularly hosts hi-level summits with about a dozen tech noligies convergence to debate - eg in addition to blockchain, 3-d printing, fablabs, (sensors) e-textiles and e-spectacles -subscribe to MIT media lab newsletter to understand what revolitionary industries of the future may be but a year or two away 

ultimately it is time in a trilaion dolllar market to mediate iopenly the search for what purspoe of this market contributes smost to sustainability- note this is the opposite maths metric to that where top decson amkers are drive by profit to the exclusion of evrything else; this biggest ever maths mistake was reported year 2000 by brookings dc as unseen wealth (ie underestimating compound risk as well as undervaluing trust-flows betrween stakehoilder needed so that makets such  as knowhow multioplying in use can be modelled way abopve zero sum hypotheses. The issue of who's who in the world of conscious leaders and the 50 bigets markets invgolves a tripl crisis : media why has no media scaled round ehroising the wotld's top 50 jobs sustaining market leaders; numbers professions why did they fail to give up monopoly lpractices in the face of uneen wealth; education -failure oto produce a world civics curricula which starts with teh stories of the 50 most conscious market lkeaders (for youth to keep updating) is to fail to emlpoer youth to sdesign sustainability purposes let alone to be the eladers of lifelong sustainability learning and doing whilst also invesnting in huimanity's greatest sustainabiliy chalenge- parenting children. For this who would argue that macropeconomic errors cant have spiralled too near to irreversibly in in the big brother direction. we invite you to debtae the oxfiord union motion - this hoiuse believes that sustainabiligty cant come to communiteis while macroeconomics devalues parneting and requires nightly newcasters to do likewise       

help us catatalogue 100 ways to empower world citizen's generation liveihoods and sustainable communities

missing curicula - eg 80% of world's knowhow is made in english and chinese but less than 5% of humans speak both languages - -- every child needs affordable access to 4 languages: mother tongue english chinese and coding-  this could be done through after school hours peer to peer spaces - update penpals in age of skype and whats app  ---english as second language is quite likely main export in a brexit britian until other countries have blockchained themselves beyond subsidising germany through paper printed euros

other educational transformations needed if half of youth are not to be unemployable by 2030  collaborate around girls empowerment to end the disgraceful chauvinistic and political chicanery that most macroeconomics analyses - eg negative value to motheringo  d

Can you help us issue invitations to world recoird jobs game- example...............................................................................................................................................

Do you have time to play the World Record Jobs game for one hour? This could happen at a breakfast meeting or an evening happy hour if thats how you prefer youths most creative experiments to be appraised.
WRJ is a youth-valuation survey (active learning) game that's as simple as possible to play
rule 1 each player is given 3 minutes to vote for a list of maximum 12 world record job creators
rule 2 the group then negotiates a grid of 3 rows and 4 columns- the process seeks to put world record job creators in the same space if being a socially active alumni of any member in that space has similar kinds of exponential impact
the players then debrief their collaborative view of the world's most joyful job creators with a benchmark friends of my family's foundation (unacknowledged giant of maths and media) update.  Examples for our current benchmark game are footnoted
the game can end there or it can be discussed as an internal survey process or one that seeks to exchange with like-minded institutions valuing youth's sustainability and empowering a borderless race to end  extremes of inequality eg such OAS partners as blum or the youth summit networks at the world bank
if at any future time the group wants to contribute publicly to the search for world record job creation we encourage them to open up a blog or similar platform
our maths and open systems advisers hope to develop an app version of world record jobs game in coming months
It would be great if we could rehearse this game once before late march when Amy's youthful Chinese mediation friends aim to test how youth alumni of vatican  university play this game in Rome as part of the launch celebrations of a worldwide youth empowerment network
chris macrae  240 316 8157
benchmark pope francis:
take a handful of his speeches (eg to US Congress , UN, Mexico, EU Strasbourg ...)  on value of families and sustainability of youth - search for which faith or culture leaders through history have prioritised valuing similar communal actions
understand the various apps of the Americas' 1960s emergence of Preferential Option Poor - -eg how the poorest muslim village women built 100+million nation from this micro-system design; how young professional most valued community health service networks around this model (Partners in Health); how a most vibrant refugees community servant model in usa "la maestra" is sustained and replicated -and has the founding dna of a 13 year old girl's effect
understand how rome is a different epicentre for europe's future worldwide friendships of youth than say brussels- eg club of rome offers a leading green network, the annual nobel peace summit, and the intent to invite superstars to co-launch the new underground colliseum around a worldwide celebration of sustainable youth , ...
benchmark sal khan or some similar open learning platform co-creator:
if the way to unite nations around the biggest change era ever is 17 sustainability goals, why not start up an on-demand curriculum of each - the way sal khan built the world's benchmark maths curriculum illustrates key open learning processes: dashboard, translation into every language, a desire to replace any teaching module if a better short way of presenting this is searched
if the UN does not have the resources or time to launch 17 parallel platforms why not choose one goal first. Goal 11 could be the simplest for spiraling inter-generational goodwill. Since sustainable communities and future capital cities already have hundreds of mayors nominating their own favorite pro-youth collaboration - eg the network of mayors who most want to reduce youth suicides in their places find it natural to include youth-led experiments from every city's mayor concerned with this initiative.  Quito's first year review of goal 11 in october 2016 would be a suitable space for launching such
What seems livelihoods-critical to World Social Trades emerging from goal 11 is that one universally agreed web bookmark provides an updating coding databank of social solutions being demanded by sustainability youth and their intergenerational investors. This needs to be open to people of all ages and geographies to access- if the UN agreed this bookmark could be joyfully linkedin from its home page

    Your editors "systems"  investigative stylke rule is optmistic rationalism - in other words search out the good news (from the blottom uop wherever needed) of improving the human lot and comunally celebrating a place's hi-trust cultures- however some of the simplest inter-generational development lessons are evident in what not to get traped in - so we publish a few stories here of seeemingly rottenplaces to be young or an ordannary person especially family loving parents
    South Sudan: Death spiral
    In the posh restaurants of Juba, the capital, a meal costs a brick-sized bundle of cash. Money-printing and economic collapse have devastated the Sudanese pound. A year ago it took 30 to buy a dollar; now it takes 120. Government salaries, when paid, are now worth almost nothing. Food prices are soaring. With peace, a bail-out might come from foreign donors. But South Sudan’s leaders keep fighting, writes our Africa correspondent  -editors note - we take no pleasure in reporting this- one of the world's great friends of open elarning is also in his 5th decade as an ionternatuional cathloic relief servant with foicus on S Sudan

Here is an idea on how to celebrate this - if you can help rsvp or phone our Washington DC hotline 1 301 881 1655

    Wanted Top 100 Missing 6-week curriculum millions of youth most need to interact in 2013


    Imagine if we could publish something that's style was a bit like a travel brochure- question becomes how does one span all relevant top 100 lifetime interests of youth and how do we profile each course in less than half a page


    Exercise pick a course - try and write a profile - here is one example- of course that ought to matter to anyone who loved my dads pro-youth economics work at The Economist. I hope that its wording can be improved through discussion. After that the hard work of who in the world involves searching the most collaborative educator in this medium and because of practice passion. This is something that I suggest sir fazle can now celebrate better than anyone else I can think of (delighted to hear other nominations in this very speacil who's who of futures of youth)


    Note: 6 weeks are the most compact  online curriculum that offers

    Each week comprise an hour of content to action clear around presented as 5 by 12 minute modules


    Goodwill Business Models


    week 1 introduction to goodwill models- characteristics:

    • multi-win value exchange between all invited to produce or demand
    • free sectors' to compound exponentially sustainable purposes over time
    • zero tolerance for externalisation now we all live on a hyper connected planet
    • fit with 2010s being youth's most productive , sustainable and truly heroic time- because cross-culturally human race can use million times more collaboration tech to realise millennium goals that previous generations could only dream about

    urgent priorities of 2010s - back in 1976 The Economist coined genre Entrepreneurial Revolution (Xmas Day Issue) to search out new organisational typologies stating only thing that is known is that none of 20th century's largest organisational models can sustain first net generation. This course will SWOT  4 of the  lost promising models found by pro-youth economists in weeks 2 through 5 and in week 6 starts up a discussion on urgent do nows and where to collaboratively network. (Jargon SWOT reports 4 classifications of an organised system : from historical and internal Strengths and Weaknesses, to future and environmental compound Opportunities and Threats)


    week 2 multi-win models Japan used in celebrating such revolutionary market purposes as fast moving electronics with world (corresponding to why The Economist consudered Japan best pro-yoth economic model ofr world trade during third quarter of 20th C)


    week 3, 4 models Bangladesh inspires worldwide youth with (what Clinton has decribed as the most heroic new model of developing economies)

    up to to 2000 before village mobile technology

    from 2000 as village mobile technology apps got onto a moores law of access acceleration


    week 5 example of context specific digitally transforming models where market leaders are valued as investing in  youth's next 3 billion productive lifetimes - see out search fir such leaders at


    week 6 how can you and your most trust peers map next actions (and the networks to be linked into) needed to unite world's youth taking into account which conflicts most urgently need reconcilation where ;  what facilitation practices do you need to mentor yourself, peers and globally/locally mediate conflicts?




    FALL 2011 Journal of Social Business Special Issue

    – celebrating 15 years on microcreditsummit knowledge networking

    What are 10 of the most exciting collaboration projects which the 2010s continuously needs Muhammad Yunus to help with rsvp to vote for or nominate 50 races to web towards the worldwide goal of poverty museums

    1 Peoples summits on sustaining communities out of every place: The History of Economics and Politics shows that today’s global crises (eg climate, financial meltdown) cannot be resolved by politicians in the middle of glaring publicity. Microcreditsummit in 1997 started the other way round summit process in which community networks replicated sustainability solutions. Dare we help the net generation to continue to celebrating Yes You Can.

    2 Forty five universities across the state of Georgia proved that it is possible in under a month’s planning to swarm 1200 students and a panel of influential judges around job creation competitions. Why not start up every university year in every place with a regional collaboration competition on job creation?

    3 A corporation, Danone, proved that it is possible to ask shareholders to start up an investment fund that invests in the next generation’s productivity.  Back in 1972, The Economist forecast complete meltdown of the global financial system in the 2010s unless such type 2 stockmarkets – that take people’s intergenerational savings- and invest in the next generation’s productivity evolve and are celebrated with more media than is used to promote your number footballer or your number 1 pop star.

    4 A young Bangladeshi-Russian-American musician had worked night and day to become an emerging opera star. Then 9/11 happened in her city of New York. She asked herself so what difference can arts make in the world? Her peers and she decided helping youth interact an artists peace corps was worthy of every celebrity’s power to empower. Why wouldn’t every future capital want to replicate New York and Monica Yunus’ example of

    5 Can friends of micro empower President Obama to work some miracles in Kenya? In 2008 he committed at Clinton Global Summit to end death by mosquito by 2015. If he was ever to have started on that mission impossible he could have linked in all the goodwill Kenya had for him with a country that also demonstrated youth’s mobile microcredit, bottom-up ecovillage, Nobel Prize for green movements, the first successful crowdmapping tools that helped peoples solve riots that top politicians’ arguments had caused. Why doesn’t American Congress support innovating extreme good where USA already has goodwill relations with “we the peoples” instead of taxing Americans to be the world’s largest employer (US Armed Forces)

    6 Why not credit the brave youth movements of Arab Spring with microcredit banking models worthy of their microentrepreneurial demands? History shows that the freedom and happiness of Declarations of Independence need to be supported by banking systems that are community transparent. In countries where more than half of the workforce is under 30 it is particularly important to stage national conflict resolutions dialogues between youth and elders free of other cultural and geo-political disputes

    7 If ever a nation’s DNA and geology needed a green social business stockmarket instead of nuclear power it is Japan. This country is a poster case for being bullied into disinvesting in youths futures by global financial communities who punished Japan for having the 20th Century’s largest property bubble. Today all the West’s richest nations are facing a decade of slump unless we changeover from macroeconomics to microeconomics.

    8 Over the last several decades , industry innovations that would have called for open replication and community ownership have been blocked. Solar energy is a prime case. Isn’t it time to stop top-down institutions from destroying youths futures just because it suits dirty big industries to pretend that man knows better than nature.

    9 All kinds of microsummit networks are now needed because we have discovered from the 15 years of microcreditsummit that whenever the poorest identify a different purpose of a life critical market its worth youth’s while to action learning from. The more heroic the purpose the greater the opportunity to take economics way above zero-sum. Note credit’s use for investing in income generation not trapping you in consumption debt; or mobile’s use in village to bring down degrees of separation on vital information flow not city slickers chatroom lifestyle

    10 Have you heard of millennium 3’s most affordable innovations emerging from triad partnerships of China, Yunus and radical global corporates? – eg GE’s $2000 mammogram or Danone’s Ying Yang Bao. Never has R&D been so joyful. Never has the potential of the knowledge networking economy been so entrepreneurially exciting.

    Our question at Duflo Poor Economics MOOC week 1. Has MIT's modeling approach ever been used to ap market's freedom for the poorest?  As a Cambridge (UK) MA in statistics in 1970s I was looking for a practice field, chose markets as that interested my father at The Economist as he had an open systems hypothesis that youth futures were being increasingly ignored as tv advertising took over costs of markets, and luckily found MIT's Glen Urban's models which also benefited from an early database software analysis tool (then) called Express. Through the 1980s we did thousands of market modeling tests which provided behavioural benchmarks across tests to complete market mixes. We found some shocking things. Service solutions integrate many more moving parts in what [Levitt][1] used to call the purposeful search for continuous improvement than lifeless products. Knowledge networked service products even more so if you want goodwill to multiply through value exchanges with multi-win models. Value chains designed round what richest need segment in extremely opposite ways from what poorest need to communally sustain. After 9/11 I decided I would spend at least half of rest of my life modeling markets NGOs dominate because I hoped to analyse how to help youth collaboratively open source life critical service solutions. 13 years into this I find the lack of integral understanding needed to replicate service franchises very sad; until usaid recently revisited mapping value chains I found western aid completely failed to design bottom up franchises; I still find greenwashing wastes well over half of money spent on searching for pro-poor solutions that could be replicated by youthful collaboration entrepreneurs through inter-community trust; let's hope enough alumni of this course linkin around a totally deeper approach to chartering and mapping how to open up knowledge networks around microfranchises served by and for the poorest- and investing in their goals for their next generation.

    [The Foundation][2] -and journal edited by Adam Smith scholars out of Glasgow - set up to continue my father's pro-youth economics approach for uniting net generation around open sourcing desperately needed knowhow service solutions believes [MOOCs][3] have a gamechanging role to play. I also have a question for Duflo. Does she value interviewing those who have spent their life passionately experimenting with solutions for the poorest for the heuristics they recommend using? By a heuristic I mean a principle that someone has seen validated so many times that is worth assuming it does spin a system's impacts unless you find proof in a specific context that it doesnt apply, or can identify a gamechanger that has transformed a market into a higher order system of systems. I would say yes the ubiquitous mobile phone in the village now makes it hard to assess what used to be extremely manual srvice franchise models of the most sustainable microcredits and thosands of barefoot banking staff. However practical Bangladeshi microeconomists and engineers have also voiced this precept from the first 42 years of their nation's social laboratory of pro-youth village banking: *Banking is a market where the richer in every role from politician and macroeconomist downwards (often subconsciously or subliminally) always edge out the needs of the poorer unless every quarter you audit the model from the poorest's voice.* When our researchers presented that principle to dad he said : yes I can think of 1000 cases where that has happened (see his thousands of artices in The Economist 1948-1990 ) and none where it hasn't. He spent his last years analysing the 00s crisis in big banking using [that precept][4] . It turns out that uniting net generation youth in the race to poverty museums can solve underemployment challenges everywhere, as well as progress millennium goals but only if post 2015 we do a much better [educational][5] job of mapping connections between goals. Re-reading the last 3 pages of Keynes general theory provides more evidence for being a fan of the Bangaldeshi's microbankers precepts than those underpinning the mindsets current @ Brussels on the Potomac or agents of Mad(ison) avenue.

    Govt to seek registration, foreign investment info from 48 Grameen ...The government is going to formulate a social business law to regulate non-government organisations, especially entities like Grameen Bank, aiming at preventing people from being cheated.
    The Banking Division has already prepared a draft of the law and sent letters to 48 organisations, asking them to provide the division with relevant documents.
    Banking Secretary Shafiqur Rahman Patwary told daily sun last week that the government is formulating a social business law to control NGOs in social business.
    The Banking Division has already asked 48 subsidiary companies of Grameen Bank, including Grameenphone, Grameen Udyog, Grameen Dannon Food Limited, Grameen Kalyan, Grameen Telecom Trust and Grameen Shakti, to provide information about registration and amount of foreign investment since inception.
    Information on these aspects may help prepare the law on operation of these social businesses, said a senior official of the Banking Division.

    ammauni - help celebrate and amrati university

    In 2015, our 44th year since first debating in The Economist whether elders of the pre-digital age would be up to designing education millennials need to be sustainable and to enjoy wonderful livelihoods, we have been led to believe by Women4Empowerment that alumni and partners of amma may be leading the top 10 partnerships of open learning that values millennials across every country 

     if you are an alumni of amma we always like to co-share news of your next actions; lead partners were last reviewed by UNai July 7 2015 - some of our notes on whos amma who are at these bookmarks  1 2

     in 2014 our top new find was the opne learning campus being designed around millenial foolowers of jim kim , paul farmer, poper francis and others (across americas, rome and catholics as the largest socially accountable identity) who help millennials tahe on sustainability transformations through the POP (Preferantial Option Poor) 

    in 2013 our hope was that China, brac and the elarning satellite yazmi would come together in celebrating education as the greatst way to empower development

    in 2012 we were hioping that south african poartnbers of taddy blecher and mandela extranet's million jobs curricukum woulkd linking through every african ihub 

    we continue to believe that education is the only optimistic rational model of economics designed around maximnising ineteractions of 7.25 billion peoples livelihoods 

    we love to hear fro you any time if you are search a similar map to ours

    MOOC NM007 Youth Entrepreneurship

    eg 6 weeks curriculum to youth entrepreneurship


    1 introduction to what is Youth Entrepreneurship and why is it more important in 2010s than ever before


    My fathers life work editing youth economics at The Economist suggests worldwide youth need to understand the following future history challenges of 2010s: (each worth a week's study)


    From keynes pro-youth economists are those who behave as if they know that a place can only grow if capital is structured so that family's savings invest in next generation out of that place- but will global capital be structure that way ahead? or will it be taken over by keynes greatest enemy "the macroeconomist" who hires himself out to richest, most speculative or most political?


    From Entrepreneurial Revolution dialogues hosted in The Economist since 1972 (see first survey The Next Forty Years) we know that the systems war of integrating mass and digtal media introduces these critical issues (each meriting a week's module)


    week 2 challenge 1 will multi-win models be designed  (way above zero-sum) so youth can innovate with million timss more collaboration technology? will we joyfully take economics beyond the industrial era's scarcity models of consuming up things to knowhow models which multiply value in use? what are the compound opportunities and threats of a) going borderless and b) embracing communications death of the cost of distance; how will society license 21st C (bottom up and open) professionals to be experts in preventing externalisation instead of 20th C's experts in externalisation


     Did we learn the right lesson when usa withdrew licence from Andersen to audit due to being worst of big 5 global accountants in ability to transparently audit sustainability exponentials and unseen wealth). andersen partners lived in a zero-sum value added world-  they believed the more billions they were worth to global businesses however much goodwill they lost with cheatin local societies that billions +0= billions; even these hard-nosed managers might have made less badwill decisions if they had correctly model value multiplication. If you zeroise trust of society you will eventually becoe worth billions*0=0. More examples of this maths at and


    weej 3 challenge 2 : explore reasons of norman macrae's first book journalising net generation (published 1984) and its maps of why 30000 microfranchises would need to be searched out- that is community service solutions that are replicable wherever life critically needed and where value is mainly or wholly retained in community of production;; how did this connect with schumacher's 2 million global village world as the only way to design a planet where next baby born anywhere has a fair chance to grow up healthy and productive


    week 4 challenge 3 what millennium goals are only intended as PR and which ones will we invest in youth of net generation achieving? how do you audit whole global and local secors purposes for responsibility of achieving the milennium goal sector is most relevant to?; which millennium goals can unite all 4 hemispheres , different cultures, rich and poor?  - for example how does defintion of purpose of education as "learning a living" fit into celebrating this heroic time


    understanding phases of net generation's first 30 years since 1984 and why we are all now ever more urgently being confronted by irreversible opporunities and threats of 2014-2024

    the open versus the closed tech movements' -what people like joi ito at
    mit media lab mean by saying we've seen moores law apply to silicon capacity but we havent yet seen it viralise the apps all societies most collaboratively need


    the job creating versus job reoplacing movements of what info technology is for


    understanding what organsiitional change is really neeed if net generation is to be responsible for innovating more new knowhow than whole of human history


    searching out top 100 collaboration leaders sho still believe 2010s can be worldwide youth's most productive, sustainble and heroic time 


    searching out a public mass broadcaster who represents the people's good news empowering bottom up community which is where the contextual integration of all sustainability challenges begins or ends


    week 6 what are some of the most exciting experiments liberating 2010s as youth's most productive decade:

    moocs themselves

    youth entrepreneur competitions including those that prize youth re-editing missing schools

    what can we learn form south africa's free university movement animated around mandela partnerships operationally coordnated by the blechers with some economic publicity help from eg branson and some tech help from eg google africa


    peer to peer movements

    maps of educational netwrks that are celebratuing learning a living


    massively debating results from community broadband experiments

    listing gamechangers for norman's other 7 wonders beyond education - eg cashless banking is a game chnager of financial services and it also celebrates the queestion: who can best start a currency chain so that it invests in youth

    contratsing where princuples of pro-youth economics are exactly opposite way round from economics that doesnt value youth's futures

    why norman considered since 1975 asian economics as core to sustaining worldwide youth centry 1976-2075- with particular foci on 3 countries whose economic models he was most curious about: japan, bangladesh, china

    Breaking News - Collaborations sought Yunus Microeconomics Glasgow Summit July 4
    Muhammad Yunus is coming to Glasgow for 48 hours between July 3-5

    we are arranging:
    microcreditsummit with 300 adam smith alumni and other microeconomists - basically since keynes professionals have known

    that only economics rules the world's systems - SO as these 2008 debates of yunus first social business book show, the $64 trillion dollar question is: will globalisation be ruled by

    • macroeconomics of the wall street kind that will ultimately pauper and big brother us peoples everywhere or
    • microeconomics that integrates communities by co-creating 7 billion good jobs that lead to a knowledge networking age of humanly extraordinary productivity and sustain an order of magnitude more health and wealth - provided we unite round ending poverty and solving other potentially worldwide system failures

    70th birthday wiishmaking sessions for Muhammad Yunus

    Launches of platforms aimed at making Glasgow one of the best twin cities with Dhaka (the city en route to all sustainability capiyals)

    THE TIME IS NOW (Last chapter yunus new book Building Social Businenss)
    help charter key dates in the 2010s which yunus calls humanity's most exciting decade - the one where we race to regain sustainabilioty of peoples, communities and planet - compare that with the 1960s which only had a race to the moon - rumor has it that dr yunus sees london olympics 2012 as the greatest stage ever mediated where a fringe expo of social businesses on how our interactions can sustain the earth may be of far more enduring significance and exciting momentum than the spectator sports. Come on BBC discover that you are the peoples world service- potentially the most exciting social business in broadcasting , the jewel in the crown of UK and global sustainability economies. We need you to be proactive before Euro tsunami reigns over us all

    connecting drucker and yunus social business -mpping back yunus social business olympics

    Thursday, 20 May, 2010 13:49
    gladius when are you flying off to claremont- is it possible to see any of the content you have been preparing on connections between drucker and yunus social business?
    you mentioned drucker originally hails from vienna; yunus dropped by jonathans hub there -perhps we need a big picture poster something sofia's frind tom ball is expert at amd which I left my copy with zasheem!
    gladius- have you got yunus new book yet? ; I will be in london my 25 for several days; if you are leaving before that sofia has copies
    michael- are there a few lines you would like gladius to hand out on type of contributions the new journal values from acdemics; equally I am thinking more about  cases and literature review styles ceos can read;
    I also wonder what examples there are of journal styles in revolutionry and interdiscoplinary fields - wonder if action learning friends at bath have some samples
    gladius' campus is near the olympics stadium - so a superb place to run yunus fringe festival out of -hopefully with london-glasgow being the main hosts- want to go and ask tmeout if they would do  special edition like liberation did in paris on the min day youth came from all over france to convene in two by 3500 person entrepreneur summits (main one hsoted by olivier at ; will paul's bbc green networks, and elkington's sustainability networks and british councils and royal society networkers begining to join on the same map london is the make or break citizens platform if biggest badwill capitals nd public broadcsting (eg london NY dc) are ever going to be turned round to value freedom of speech for social business

    To Yunus Peoples in Italy
    Dr Yunus personal mission  for the rest of his life is to meet up with the biggest orgnsitions in the world (or more precisely those that own the most technology or knowledge -please note of these are networks to be formed- eg unite all of a city’s universities caring faculties and students around eg job camps)
    however macrogoverned systems' past has been Yunus wnts to invite them to try to do one good expeiment with their technology in bangaldesh;his idea is then  to give them so much publicity of the value of doing good (with technology whose marginal cost to them is next  nothing) that we start to turn the 1000 least sustainable orgnisatoins to some of the collaborative (abe zero sum) and most sustainable
    I assume that you do understand that the history of poverty and the battle of the sexes are completely intwined. Anyone ( my faimly and I trust) with the slightest understanding of how to change media for the greater good starts there
    the is no point coming to our next Yunus open space unless you can happily contribute to that wish of his;I can see it  clashes with what many of his peoples networks have done  in the past -and my god have my facourite community building peers and I had difficulty in adjusting to this living script of global grameen (or I have anyway though it plays to most of my 30 years of professional relationship building having worke directly on and with leaders of 50 of the world's 100 largest brands)


    Here is the most important stage in your part of the world – what can you tell us about connecting with it that you will allow me to circulate widely (in trying to promote the most open source dynamics around yunus ,I get immensely tired of being told mil re confidential when I cant see what the confidential bit is – we lose the sustainability of the world by getting so boxed in – dont try to censor me with such a culture on me without extremely sensitive and timely reasoning)

    On 10 July 2010 – the first annual Social Business Day – there will be another large scale event promoted by Hans to celebrate the accomplishment of social business. Sponsored by the city of Milan , it will be held in the city centre where some 20000 people are expected to assemble to enjoy the music and festivities that will launch the event; Milan ’s Mayor Letizzia Moratti has become a major ally of social business. She is helping to work with Unicredit to launch Grameen Italia, and will highlight social business to Expo 2015 in Milan

    (If you most want to help – why not printout dad’s attached bio- post it to Romano Prodi and ask whether he wants to join yunus 70th birthday wishes and join in the 34th year of the entrepreneurial revolution  which he was in at the start of when he was translater of my dad’s 1976 storylines on how we needed to embed micro systems into the world’s biggest ones before going irreversibly global) Perhaps you could also get in touch with Monica Yunus to see if she is helping and needs help with Milan –since she is one of the most grounded of ladies I have met in 4 years of this yunus merry go round. I absolutely agree that we need a most grounded womens capitals of yunus network ...

    world premier of yunus booktalk - Building Social Business

    rsvp if you wish to connect your yunus bookclubs with ours

    Thank you for hosting this fantastic start to the only book I know of whose readers' social value interactions can change the world's sustainability. By staging an event at the Ronald Reagan World Trade Centre a few hundred yards from the centre of superpower, University of Maryland has raised the bar for all future booktalks, and your two years of getting social value creation and finance to face off with each other is the best world series DC is ever likely to see.

    As with dr yunus' first social business book, my family and media friends are hosting 1000 yunus bookclub with the intent of open sourcing an optimal sets of maps of where people can connect with yunus on what project

    Would it be appropriate if I brought over to Melissa a stock of 50 books? One idea would be to selectively hand these out to students and faculty -and then after summer - you could extend your weekly Dingman entrepreneur pitch to a parallel social business surgery. If relevant I could attend early surgeries until our mapping databank and its relationship permissions is fully internalised at RHS. My father worked for 40 years at The Economist and believes networks round Yunus are the only way we now have to restore microeconomics before macroeconomics serial crashes (wall street, greek economy ... ) irreversibly harm our childrens futures.

    other 50 + book centres are Yunus Centre Glasgow where cam is the 2nd social business professor in the world - he is charged with statistics of how how microhealth and microcredit impact each other; see more at page 160-163 of Yunus book ; also at glasgow is zasheem a friend of dr yunus since youth who has been working for 20 years to unite students and faculty in re-examining how adam smith and dr yunus are on the same microeconomics track; there will be an extraordinary microeconomics summit on 4th July in Glasgow, which my family is co-sponsoring, where there will also be a 5 days late opportunity to pledge 70th birthday wishes to dr yunus- it would be fantastic on maryland could join this party

    london leader -and yunus 69th birthday host in Dhaka - sofia whose job creation social business and coming "popularised" business models handout melissa knows about

    there is sam's results and microcredit network who have been sampling congressmen and have followed yunus booktalk down to Houston where there will be a particular focus on job creation; sam's microcreditsummit network have been asked by Queen Sofia of Spain to try and spot 100 microcredits in over 50 countries ready to replicate the youth mobile microcredit of  which started in kenya. Queen Sofia will personally be chief host of the world microcreditsummit in spain in november 2011; and in parallel President "Son of Microcredit" Obama and Hilary Clinton have started hosting 60 country entrepreneurship summits (see footnote)

    there is jonathan's 25 intercapital entrepreneur hubs  ; there is alex at GWU who started schools microcredit networks in the boston area at age of 15 with support of his dad's friends at the young presidents network; there is caitlin who as  senior at swarthnmore is a yunus youth ambassador and the first student to sustain a year long social business students club; there is the Royal Society of Arts that picks up your baton as first booktalk in Europe

    win-win-win multipliers of the social value interaction map extend round the world with paris my main field visit space this semester thanks to the extraordinary 3000 youth and 1500 social business training formats coordinated by but I better stop...!


    chris macrae feedback from first 50 book readers
    President Obama
    Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center; Washington, DC; April 26, 2010, Inuagiual President Summit on Entrepreneurship
    Look at the professor who came up with an idea -- micro-credit -- that empowered the rural poor across his country, especially women and children. That’s the powerful example of Dr. Yunus.

    Look what happened when Muhammad shared his idea with a woman from Pakistan, who has since lifted hundreds of thousands of families and children out of poverty through a foundation whose name literally means “miracle.” That’s the example of Roshaneh Zafar. (Applause.)

    Look what happened when that idea spread across the world -- including to people like my own mother, who worked with the rural poor from Pakistan to Indonesia. That simple idea, began with a single person, has now transformed the lives of millions. That’s the spirit of entrepreneurship.

    So, yes, the new beginning we seek is not only possible, it has already begun. It exists within each of you, and millions around the world who believe, like we do, that the future belongs not to those who would divide us, but to those who come together; not to those who would destroy, but those who would build; not those trapped in the past, but those who, like us, believe with confidence and conviction in a future of justice and progress and the dignity of all human beings regardless of their race, regardless of their religion.

    That’s the enormous potential that we’re hoping to unlock during this conference and hoping to continue not only this week but in the months and years ahead- starting with Turkey 2011

    thanks sam - a wonderful jorney you have kindly taken most of us  on

    Formal Embargo Ynus 70th Birthday + 4days

    its a little bit jumping the gun but we are starting to collect papers out of glasgow on connections between adam smith and yunus and everything in between that is micro up, community regenerating, ending poverty and job creating 

    ever since the wrong sort of alpha males worked out that economics rules the world to quote Keynes (democracy etc is subservient to it) there has always been a war between

    ***micro whose heroes started with adam smith (scotland lost ints nationhood to an interntional banking scam in 1700! making scots very impudent when it cmes to whose a prticlar economic model actually spinning for) and collaboratively goes on today with people like yourself yunus ingrid munro fazle abed and queen sofia

    *** and macro which tends to be faceless but is sponsoired by the big gets bigger, the speculative get more speculative, the imagemker and lobbyists spend on media however much is needed to drown out goodwill,  common sense, free speech and free market   ;

    terrifyingly the battle between micro and macro becomes much more intense whenever new media technology comes along; if micro loses out on this worldwide decade we wont ever get back to community common sense - no wonder yunus new book says 2010s is the most exciting decade to be - the 60s only had the moon to race; the 2010s has our whole planet at stake

    which is all to say a case history of results would in my view be a core read in a first issue of glasgow's journal

    Purpose, Poverty, Pitfalls and Redemption

    I want to talk with you today about purpose, poverty, pitfalls and redemption—how committing my life to the end of poverty has given my life purpose, the pitfalls I have faced along the way, especially now, and how seeing redemption in the work I support has returned me to my original vision and commitment.

    Let me begin with two quotes that have guided my life and point to the “purpose and poverty” dimension of my talk.

    The first is from retired Republican Senator Mark Hatfield who said:

    We stand by as children starve by the millions because we lack the will to eliminate hunger.  Yet we have found the will to develop missiles capable of flying over the polar cap and landing within a few hundred feet of their target.  This is not innovation it is a profound distortion of humanity’s purpose on earth. Please let that sink in.  Hatfield said: (repeat quote)
    It’s time for us to consider the question, ‘What is humanity’s purpose on earth?’ 
    Inventor and futurist Buckminster Fuller said:

    The things to do are the things that need doing.  That you see need to be done and that no one else seems to see need to be done.You’ll see Fuller’s words at work when I tell my story and that of one of my heroes Muhammad Yunus.
    Here’s my story.  I went from having degrees in music and playing percussion instruments in the Miami Philharmonic orchestra for 12 years to devoting my life to ending poverty first through founding RESULTS, the citizens lobby on ending global poverty and then founding the Microcredit Summit Campaign.
    That’s quite a shift and I’ve been asked what motivates me.  When I look back through my life, two of the events that stand out are the following.  In 1964, I played tympani in the orchestra at my high school graduation.   
    Before the ceremony started, one of the flute players came back to the percussion section and told me that a high school fraternity brother of mine, one year younger than I, had died the day before in a tractor-trailer accident in Georgia.  I was 17 at the time.  When I was 17 I thought I had forever.  But as I went through my friend’s funeral, the days of mourning, and went with his younger brother after the funeral to pick up his report card from his homeroom teacher, I realized that maybe I had 17 more minutes, or 17 more months, or 17 more years. It was then, at the age of 17, that I began asking myself, “Why am I here?  What am I here to do? What is my purpose?”  No answers, just the questions.

    Four years later, on college graduation day in 1968, Robert Kennedy died.  There were more questions about purpose.  Why am I here, what am I here to do? No real answers, just the questions, more and more clearly.

    Ten years later I went to a presentation on The Hunger Project focused on ending world hunger.  Up until that point I hadn’t thought about world hunger much.  Actually I was oblivious.  But if you lifted up the oblivious--right underneath I felt hopeless.  I was quite sure that hunger was inevitable, mostly because there were no solutions.  It had to be that way, because if there were solutions, somebody would have done something about it by then.

    But at the presentation it became clear that there was no mystery to growing food, or becoming literate or gaining access to clean water or basic health.  When I looked at it honestly, I realized that I wasn’t hopeless about the perceived lack of solutions.  What I felt hopeless about was human nature!  People would just never get around to doing the things that could be done to end hunger.  I also realized that there was one human nature that I had control over - my own—and of course I had these pent-up questions: why am I here—what is my purpose?

    So I got involved.  Between 1978 and 1979 I spoke to 7,000 high school students about ending world hunger—in Miami where I lived and Los Angeles where I moved.  Before I went into the first classroom I read statements from the US National Academy of Sciences and others calling for the “political will” to end hunger.

    So I asked 7,000 high school students for the name of their member of Congress.  I didn’t want to know if they had written them or met them, just the name. Do you want to guess the number of students out of 7,000 who knew the name of their member of Congress?

    200 knew the name of their member of Congress (fewer than 3 percent) and 6,800 didn’t know the name.  RESULTS was started out of that gap—the calls for the political will to end hunger on the one hand and the lack of basic information on who represented us in Washington on the other.

    I moved to Washington, DC in 1985 as the first staff member of RESULTS and we lobbied on behalf of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) a small UN agency based in Rome.  IFAD sent us videos of three groups they had invested in. One was a Dutch documentary of a little bank in    Bangladesh with 42,000 borrowers called the Grameen Bank.  Usually I would say that as we learned more, it took our breath away.  But now I would say that we were touched by the unleashing of the human spirit, by redemption, people’s honor and worth being restored.
    During 1985 the 50 RESULTS chapters in 27 states would watch the video on Grameen Bank and then write their member of Congress.  In 1986 we had legislation introduced supporting microenterprise as it was known then.  Over a one-year period the volunteers in RESULTS generated 100 editorials on the microenterprise legislation.  In 1987 Muhammad Yunus came to our office and spoke by conference phone to editorial writers in 28 cities.  In 1988 Muhammad Yunus joined the RESULTS Board.  Eighteen years later he won the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Meeting Muhammad Yunus, who has become a dear friend, has been a critical part my life and my work for the last 23 years.  Let me tell you the story of how he started Grameen Bank, but in a way I’ve never told it.  Let me tell you with the spiritual transformation at the center.

    After getting a PhD in economics at Vanderbilt in Tennessee, Muhammad Yunus returned to his newly independent country Bangladesh and taught at a university.  There was a famine in the country and here is what I usually stress, ‘Prof. Yunus said the economic theories in my text book are very elegant, but they aren’t working in the village next to my campus.  I am going to go into the village and learn economics from the villagers.

    The piece that I usually leave out is the fact that this young professor of economics was having a spiritual crisis.   With starving people virtually at the doorstep of his university he wondered about the value of all the fancy theories he was teaching.  He said he started to dread his own lectures and their elegant theories. 

    So in 1976 he went into the village next to his campus to see if he could be of use to even one person for one day. In the village of Jobra, Prof. Yunus met Sofia Khartum who made bamboo stools. She became his new teacher.  

    He asked her how much profit she made each day.

    "Two cents" she replied.  

    He was shocked and asked why she only made two pennies profit for such a beautiful stool.  She told him that she didn't have the money to buy the bamboo so she borrowed the money from a trader, a money lender on the condition that she sell the finished product back to him at a price he set.  The moneylender's price barely covered the cost of the bamboo, leaving her with a two-penny return on her hard work.

    "If you could sell the stools to anyone, could you make more?" Prof. Yunus asked.
    "I could," she replied, "but I don't have the money to buy the bamboo so I have to keep borrowing it from the money lender."
    Prof. Yunus had a student go around the village to see who else borrowed from the moneylender. The student found 42 people who needed a grand total of $27 to free themselves from this debt trap, less than $1 each.
    He lent the 42 people $27 from his pocket allowing them to pay off the money-lender, buy their raw materials, make their products and sell them to the highest bidder.  Sofia Khartum’s profits soared from two cents a day to $1.25 a day.  Those 42 people were the first borrowers of what became Grameen Bank, which means village bank.  It now has more than 8 million borrowers, 97 percent of whom are women and it affects the lives of more than 40 million family members.
    Another glimpse of the revolution he promulgated came years later when he would be asked what his strategy was in forming Grameen Bank.  Here’s how he would reply: “I didn’t have a strategy, I just kept doing what was next.  But when I look back, my strategy was, whatever banks did, I did the opposite.  If banks lent to the rich, I lent to the poor.  If banks lent to men, I lent to women.  If banks made large loans, I made small ones.  If banks required collateral, my loans were collateral free.  If banks required a lot of paperwork, my loans were illiterate friendly.  If you had to go to the bank, my bank went to the village.  Yes, that was my strategy.  Whatever banks did, I did the opposite.” [End of quote.]  Do you see the revolution here—the rule breaking?
    This should have been warning of what was to come when microfinance institutions began to run more like commercial banks and what that might do to the soul of microfinance.
    I am fortunate to have been one of the leading advocates for microfinance over the last 25 years.  We have been so successful in our advocacy that the field is out of control and now the profit-maximizers, those who want to make big money from the poor are rushing in.  This leads me from the poverty and purpose part of my talk to the pitfalls and redemption portion.
    What are the problems that have become pitfalls?  There are profit maximizers who charge the poor 85% interest, 100% interest, or more.  As Prof. Yunus says, we started microcredit to free people from the money-lenders, not to become the new money lenders.
    There are some whose very high interest rates lead to very high profits but the profits are not used for the benefit of the clients.  They are not used to lower interest rates, they are not used to bring new products to the clients, they are not used to provide dividends to the clients. 
    The largest initial public stock offering (IPO) of the last few years generated tens of millions of dollars in profits for senior managers.  Institutions that invested $1 million walked away with more than $100 million profit each from the IPO.  What did the clients receive from the IPO?  Zilch!  Nada!  Nothing!
    I had an epiphany at the Africa-Middle East Regional Microcredit Summit that I coordinated in Nairobi, Kenya last month.  I now see that the spiritual dimension of microfinance, the redemptive dimension of microfinance is central to my vision for the field.  The technical issues are important, but only if they serve the transformational dimension.

    Here’s an example of what I mean by microfinance for redemption told to me by another of my heroes, Ingrid Munro of Jamii Bora, a microfinance institution in Kenya. 

    After the post election violence in Kenya, Jamii Bora received funds to rebuild one of the markets that had been destroyed in the rioting.  They decided they had to find the rioters who burned down the market and engage them in rebuilding it. 

    I don’t know of any microfinance organization in the world that, if given funds to rebuild a market destroyed in rioting, would say “We have to find the rioters and engage them in rebuilding it.”  And if they said it, I don’t think they could find them.  And if they found them, I don’t think they could convince the rioters to help rebuild what they had destroyed.

    But Jamii Bora’s staff are all former members of the program, people who were former slum-dwellers, some of them former beggars, prostitutes, and thieves before they joined the program, so they are close to the ground.

    The leader of the gang that destroyed the market was known as “The General.”  Jamii Bora staff talked with him about helping rebuild what they had destroyed.  When the General first met Ingrid he told her he was very upset at her staff when they first talked with him because they didn’t realize how dangerous he was.

    But they convinced the General and his gang to help rebuild the market.  They paid the gang to guard the materials at night and paid them to help rebuild with others during the day. 

    After the market was rebuilt they engaged the General and some of the gang in microfinance.  The general created a business that uses sheet metal to build cases that children use to keep their things in when they go to simple boarding schools. 

    He came to Ingrid last year and told her that he hadn’t gone to his home village for 13 years because his mother was so ashamed of him.  But he had just gone home and his mother cried for three days because she was so happy about how he had turned his life around.

    There are many visions for microfinance including this one: using microfinance for redemption.   The dictionary defines redemption as restoring one’s honor or worth, setting one free.

    The world’s poor need this kind of redemption—redemption that restores their honor and worth and sets them free.  Redemption that Prof. Yunus saw with the $27 he lent to 42 people 34 years ago—redemption he and other microfinance leaders around the world have seen over the years.And here is another kind of transformation the world needs—that we look at people whom we had previously seen as the problem instead as the solution.  The world needs us to change our own thinking rather than writing people off as incapable of transforming their own lives. 

    Let me close with this quote from George Bernard Shaw’s Man and Superman:

    [quote] “This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one, the being a force of nature, instead of a selfish, feverish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me, it is a sort of splendid torch which I've got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

    Let us work together to ensure that we use our lives for a purpose recognized by ourselves as a mighty one, that we use our lives to bring us closer to the end of poverty or a resolution to any of the problems that confront us.

    I thank you.

    Up until London 2005's dismal year of make poverty history, I worked very closely (networks connecting adviser) with john bunzl of simpol party for 2 years who Caroline knows; there is  very hot opportunity to get involved with yunus at Royal Society of Arts may 26 if we could find way to explain mutual interests in time; after that july 4 glasgow which is actually yunus strategy centre for whole of europe on sorts of community gorunded and sustaining things I understand carloline to want to move forward;  sofia , zasheem, paul rose (who works with prince charles and Lord Sainsbury's eldest dughter on green prizes at  all know a lot more about whos' yunus who in london and uk green mircoeconomics than I do; yunus intends to bring an expo of everything he's ever done on green and sustainbility to london olympics- sofia is london peoples leader collecting action info on linking back from that future in ways to communally action now; yunus expects to bring at lest 100 global organisational partners to that event in the inuagural briefing he gave to global grameen alumni (including zasheem, sofia and me) in germany nov 2009 which his new book now celebrates  
    helen worked on research of microcredit for cameron 2 years ago - and may well know which political subgroups understand how this is the microeconomics key to door to green and job cretion agenda;
    president obmaa's and hilary clinton's and 100+ congressmens apprecition of yunus has helped erstore yes we can is towards the end of this transcript; sam daley-harris knows worldwide conectiosn ofthis of which queen sofi in spain is the number 1 opinion leader across Europe, and I would say worldwide
    I am absolutely hopeless at politics but can map sustainability economics of networks of systems if that ever becomes relevant

    Yunus 70-th birthday wish party - well 5 days late also 235th entrepreneurs celebration of DoI

    Hi 69th birhday trekkers, global grameen alumni and recent friends of making yunus biggest wishes become collaboration true, and cirizens worldwide joining sustainability's greatest races

    This year's 70th birthday collaboration wish party for dr yunus is being coordinated by Sofia's and my good friend Sasheem out of glasgow July 4 which intends to be yunus best collaboration city. Zasheem is -a personal friend of dr yunus since youth and who for 20 years has been connecting glasgow's universities in demanding micro-entrepreneurial revolution; glasgow has the 2nd social business professor in the world and may soon have more sb profs than anywhere; after yunus firsl talk here (Glasgow 1 dec 2008) the grameen nursing institute was born with glasgowcal supplying its nursing teachers; 2 floors of grameenhq have already started teaching 40 village girls while nike's 5 million dollars builds a proper teaching hospital centre in dhaka

    if you can promise you can make a SB happen for dr yunus or journalise a world leading case connecting your region or life's pplication area, please write to zasheem who is coordinating invites (cc me if you wish); my family's current social busienss loans include journal of social business and Sofia's london creative labs are in effect minor co-sponsors of this event

    The summit is also more formally called  microeconomics summit partly to celebrate the scottish microeconomics track which began with adam smith and ended with my dad (unless we can find ways of continuing it through yunus, dhaka, and twinned capitsl of sustainability economics)

    congratulations to green party mp
    Dear Caroline
    could I ask - do your views of sustainability system designs and community building linkin with Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus; my friend Zasheem at Glasgow University is 90% likely to be putting on a summit with him on july 4 at Glasgow Caledonian University which will re-examine what Scot Adam Smith actually said about advantages of nations, one of Yunus' 5 partnering universities around the world.
    During 2005's unsuccessful year of make poverty history, I had volunteer role of connecting John's simultaneous policy networks and researching peoples biggest sustainability wishes sans frontieres- I have been mapping networks as what will sustain or break the world since 1984 and dad and my future history on net generation
    Paul Rose BBC broadcaster on polar and solar attended dr yunus 69th birthday wishes dilaogue hosted by London Leader Sofia who is dedicated to experimenting with Yunus inspired community building methods on Job Creation. Next month Yunus is 70 and his 7th decade wishes on making 2010s the most exciting decade have just been published. As he says our generation's race has the earth and peoples to save with extraordinary technology capabilities, whereas the 60s only had the moon race. Yunus aims to swarm all his sustainability project leaders on the London Olympics. Paris has already scaled up at least 50000 youth microentrepreneur networkers of Yunus thanks to such actors as the minister of employent/youth Martin Hirsch, Sarkozi's public celebrations of DR Yunus book ordering the main business school HEC to make curricula around it and extraordinary new media  
    by coincidence Yunus youtubed from number`10 in April 2008 on one of the worst days for British banklng ; Glasgow's main research with Yunus is on healthcare, wellbeing and going beyond welfare systems, and on restoring knowledge of Adam Smith's purpose- though zasheem could explain better than I ; also peter challen friend of John's  was at 2008 lunch in Saint James my father hosted with dr yunus on need for community economics to sustain us all, 
    Not everyone knows that in 1843 The Economist (where dad worked for 40 years advocating microeconomic system design )was founded to make the biggest transformation of parliament history; its founder wanted it closed once corn laws and capital piunishment were repealed
    a couple of weeks ago Obama hosted Presidents Summit on Entrepreneurship - one of his best chances of getting back to yes we can community building agnedas including his pledge to 5 million green jobs; a quarter of his speech was on Muhammad Yunus
    In Bangladesh Yunus' bank for the poor installs more solar units than the whole of the USA.
    Yunus new book on sustainability system design may get an early read by dozens of members of Congress whom Sam has built relationships with over last 20 years. In Europe his main ally is Queen Sofia of Spain - probably the greatest VIP of End Poverty and sustainable communities. In the event that you know anyone who might want a copy, sofia in Brixton has the UK stock of the 1000 my friends and I are distributing around the world. (Or I could deliver copies this weekend to anywhere drivable from london)

    Dear Friends

    Since working at Coopers & Lybrand in 1990 where I had some inane experiences caused by  some professional rules that haven’t changed for 100 years  I have been working on what assumptions global professions make that do not compound sustainable futures. 

    As of 1998 my goodwill audit was sufficient to forecast the implosion of Andersen if it didn’t stop devaluing true and fair; social business maths is the simplest subset of what I map in assessing exponential futures of systems , networks and global markets

    I think this has relevance to the idea of a microcredit course

    either 1 such a course becomes like  a customised  trojan horse empowering different professional lecturers to identify what they no longer teach the way they did before wall street imploded; in other words one needs  group compilation of what theory is no longer safe and then one can frame your interdisciplinary course in microcredit to help with changes in the other courses

    or you view microcredit as  practice change that perhaps isnt taught either by faculty or student but is an action learning space in which both can question each other as project based experiences grow; I dont know how your culture deals with other ideas that have radically changed and needed both students and faculty to explore with each other

    When facilitating how every one is faced with change at same time in an organisation I find the following process minimal
    Needs to have been signed off by top person and that person has committed a co-worker to involve everyone who needs to be involved
    After interviews of what each expert most wants to change a workshop format is developed in which everyone involved is expected to attend and where in this case a few key slides on microcredit are presented as much from  does this way of presenting it let us introduce all the other changes we have agreed on as being  perfect microcredit course (
    One of the beauties of pure microcredit is a 5th grader can get its key rules – the hard part is how to interface it with all the complex stuff that is in situ and whose conflicts with people it would ultimately be replacing )
    I don’t know if RHS faculty might want to pilot this during the summer – perhaps it depends on the book; of course if RHS could do it to themselves they could then consult on doing it to other faculties and indeed to folk like USAID – perhaps become the yunus centre on how to introduce microcredit to reframe what top-down macroeconomic assumptions no longer help anyone 
    I assume at some level HEC does this : I am pretty sure none of the other yunus centres get involved in general theory reframing ; they are set on practice projects yunus wants- that’s  why there are 2 types of yunus university partners – those doing something like changing nursing and health systems; those changing the sustainability of 21st c professional curricula
    In spain I would recommend that microcredisummit fast tracks this by seeing if there could be Queen Sofia University Centres of microcredit in a few universities but then I am just an impudent scot who encourages hi-trust leaders to enjoy branding the future and letting the past fade into history  -
    My father actions  much stronger hypothesis that this is your entrepreneurial revolution duty if you know how failing systems trap peoples

    In Bangladesh they joyfully say DEVELOPMENT is both the instruments and the process through which humans creatively strive for peace and prosperity Depending who you are listening to talking to Dr Yunus or Fazle Abed or Ingrid Munro, I think the problem for economics is the micro up system change flows through so many disciplines and applications

    magic10.gif you'd be welcome to reword the chart attached bur starting with the middle box: I label microbanking and the system change of social business that Bangladesh invented in the 1970s as both 1 and 10 - you can study microbanking at basic level of execution and by the time its flowed its virtuous spiral round all the other interfaces shown it becomes your macro integrator of everything (something demanded back in 1976 in The economist's survey of Entrepreneurial Revolution)  - or in other words microbanking and social business system models need action learning through both  elementary and advanced maps for every age and culture for those interested in sustainability investment in 9 through 2 we hear 9 when dr yunus convenes global grameen clubs of global brand ceos and invited them to partner in innovation designed to test how free their global market is to be sustainable we see 8 when new university curriculum of sustainability are assembled we see 7 when JP Morgan and Ingrid talk to each other, and incidentally single interest foundations are I posit evil for a 21st C world we see 6 when Obama addresses clinton global initiative we see 5 at traditional microcreditsummits when we get to the thorny question of doing real microcredit requires changes in national laws on banks, as well as gandhian perspective on whole truth gov and professions are needed for poorest not richest; incidentally privatization has for many become a dirty word cos it is implemented exactly the opposite way round from that which my father coined it to mean  we see 4 because there is no point on earth in starting a bank unless you can turn up peace and resolve any conflicts that are causing underclasses to use manmohan singhs language, or have the capacity to help if the area is prone to cyclical disasters or endemic health problems we see 3 because rural economies is where all clean water , food, energy and land rights start we see 2 cos children's vocational education is the greatest sustainability investment of all  true cultures of microcredit invest in through a generation no wonder man is breaching the greatest system crisis of all when all these flows are muddled up with the experts boxing in their theories and leaving humanity to take the hindmost chris macrae

    New York's Week Sept 21-28 In Crisis Year /09/10
    To University Youth

    .New York, report from week 1 of Joy of Life Decade

    Share in What Manhattan’s Largest Bank Wants to Action Learn

    JP Morgan Executive introducing founder JB’s Ingrid Munro yesterday said

    Ingrid and Jamii Bora in Kenya is being talked about around the world  for helping to revolutionise microfinance. The thing I love about Ingrid’s model is that she recognises that the notion of charity is not empowering;

    that strategic philanthropy is about developing the undeveloped,

     about providing technical assistance and resources to vast majority of people across the world who need to be empowered to become productive citizens.

    1 Context: Branding 2010s The Joy of Life decade is an invitation from Nobel Dr Yunus  to every being to join in, not the least youth ambassadors and global brand ceos! Whilst giving Nelson Mandela’s birthday speech, he has already set football world cup’s a video on why not co-brand south africa 2010’s football and race to end poverty celebrations. Friends and I are dubbing this New York’s joy of life week in 09/10 since all microcredit leaders are converging on the city with Clinton global climaxing the week To start the week, youth banking’s most exciting movement celebrated a 800 person social business storytelling and Q&A session at Manhattan’s biggest back (more below)

    Next Please tweet  : NYC Tweetup Sept 23, Africa Rally racers fight to end poverty

    This text promotes an east african car rally in November whose funds will go to microcredit summit kenya and Jamii Bora. In particular tomorrow night sees new York ’s celebration launch of this. Links: for microcreditsummit : official web fan club

     jamii bora:   kenya official web fan club  

    3 The rest of this report is mainly on Kenya’s and youth banking’s invitation to the world to link in microcreditsummit in April 2010, AKA as Jamii Bora slum bank tutorial 2 to JP Morgan – Manhattan’s biggest bank. This took place in Manhattan yesterday. I invite peter and jerry who were there to correct any errors or omissions. If you are a club leader why not make some sort of members wiki out of this opening text of yes we can interconnects. If you want a copy of the first official leaflet on kenya microcreditsummit send me your snailmail


    Jamii Bora is now kenya ’s largest microcredit with 110 branches, 200 outlets, 250,000 members (ie serving about 1.5 million people), it’s doubling every two to three years.  Uniquely in the world it is a mobile (members records are fully automated fingerprinted!) and slums youth microcredit as well as a microcredit for all the poorest. Ingrid whose life work had been in Kenya , and who had taken in a few orphans over time was about to retire in 1999 when mothers and orphans said you cant do that mum. So instead Ingrid started a microcredit with one of the simplest design rules. Save for 6 months and then you can have credit of double what you saved. Typically new members save $12 and take a loan out for $24. Those who climb the ladder fast may find that their doubling of loans reached 4100 by about the 7th successful loan completion. This means that whilst the microcredit remains anchored in income generation for the poorest, it also has some members who now employ 20 people or more – a bridge from individual job creation to SME start ups.

    5 All staff are former members, and the positive energies of youth are central to energizing Jamii Bora. One of Ingrid’s earliest converts was a young thief who is now a chief membership recruiter, and in last years troubles the young membership hunted out that gang who burnt down the 1000 stall market of kibera alum and invited them to rebuild it. This he did though the first time he met Ingrid he said he didn’t initially like meeting her staff because they weren’t sufficiently afraid of him. The second time he met Ingrid he said he'd been back home for the first time in 10 years and his mum is so pleased that he has given up being a gangster and become a microbanker. As Ingrid says: have you ever met a child who wants to become a thief or a prostitute? Its a broken system that traps youth in such life-losing pursuits.   Jamii Bora is well on the way to becoming kenya’s most trusted brand, and that means it attracts all the right sorts of sustainability partners in much the same way that Grameen and BRAC do as the most sustainable forces for humanity in developing hemispheres. Jamii Bora also runs alcoholics and glue sniffers anonymous as part of a social program of “there is hope” which it takes to the streets –and literally the sewers - to invite young people to sign into. Just about the only rule for joining the social program is that we are all tribes united. JB is the leading youth micro credit in the world and it is microcreditsummit founder’s sam daley harris to take the good practice news of JB and any other great practices shared in kenya april 2010 on a 50 country road tour designed to search out the 2 deepest microcredits in each country – thus inviting back over 100 extremely sustainable microcredits back to kenya micro up knowhow exchange 2.0. Moreover Queen Sofia of Spain has signed an Africa-Spanish speaking southern hemisphere knowledge exchange agreement, and will be guest hosting world microcreditsummit out of Madrid in 2011.

    6 Other cores of jamii bora program are:

    -health insurance- early on Ingrid found repayments were at risk whenever family members went into hospital – so jamii bora offers the world cheapest health insurance 32 cents a week covers a family. This has been achieved by buying up capacity of missionary hospitals which might otherwise have gone bust.

    -a business school- jamii bora invites world’s social workers to come and help peer to peer youth training out of addiction and into business starting up

    7 specials of jamii bora include

    the largest ecological new town – 2000 houses which members made their own bricks and roof tiles-; which has a world leading water and sewerage treatment facility; which uses solar energy and of course invites continuous ecological networking solutions

    8 things that jamii bora is planting in the hope they will take off

    the first primary school for orphans has already opened and next year will see the first secondary school; as those experienced with Bangladesh microcredit will know the deal of sustainability investment is to make the current generation of poor income generation and to take their next generation’s capabilities and resources way beyond the failed system that trapped their parents

    9 who are you to help?

    I hope it is clear that kenyaapril 2010  intends to be the best ever microcredit summit if you in any community building ca[acity want to sustain africa or youth in particular; JB is only part of africa’s best news for sustainability worlds with BRAC having got to 100000 members in under year 3 in both Uganda and Tanzania, and forming microhealth partenrships with Bill Gates Foundation and social micro media partenrships with Soros Foundation and Mastercard Foundation to name but 3; and with grameen due to announcve social business comeptition funds for africa and other goals that many of us only dream of wheareas Dr Yunus realises. 


    contact alex at GWU in Washington DC if you wish to collaborate in his aim to get 50 university students to africa; contact mostofa or sofia in london – mostofa runs the official yunus citizen and youth collaboration web and sofia who facilitated yunus 69th birthday dialogue is experimenting with how Londoners  can host their own employment services agencies (inspired by similar structure Grameen and BRAC offer) and link this to 2012 promise to make london the sustainability Olympics; if you are American continue to lobby your congressman to sign up yunus for the congressional media of honor – this is bigger than the presidential medal as its prize include a speech to the whole of congress; if you share obama's yes we can spirit, not how what he cant do in USA we can try out in his fatherland of kenya ; in India leaders encourage students to tear up educational curricula that are not sustainable; please do question if you are at a business school whether you are being taught economics of the ever less economic of the sort sponsored by the big get bigger, the walled in get ever more walled on; the good news is that BRAC has a fully fledged university for studying the economics of transparent community building; dr yunus is inviting vice chancellors to contribute to the missing curriculum of sustainability; and Ingrid is simple saying come and help youth peer to peer what they need to regenerate on kenya or any poor place. If your place has a week in 09/10 when everything micro up is coming together, tell us so we can pit it on the calendar – let’s make the 2010s joy of life decade and escape just in time from what the 00s has been spinning as potentially the most uneconomic and depressing start any century has ever had. Incidentally in mapping a curricula of development I do advocate consideration of BRAC’s definition – develop is the instruments and process whereby people strive for peace and prosperity.


    10 For sure, I am just an amateur reporter though 25 years ago my father’s book clarified that by 2024 the difference in compounding a peoples win-win-win global and a big brother’s lose-lose-lose is at least 10 fold on terms of health and wealth  - that’s the exponential downwards we have very few years now to turn round- if you have expert question to ask on microcredit send them in and I will try and relay them to people like sam daley harris .  Why not ruthlessly edit the pieces of this message that matter most to you and start a peer to peer email as if it were a wiki that those in the community of you can invest sustainability in... please do keep in touch with your Micro Up and Yes WE Can progress out of every city!
    Postscript- I also met an extrordinary sister   (Religious Teachers Fillipini) who is at the epicentre of 5000 schools that help orphans with aids especially in Ethiopia ,and who wants to better understand ingrid's model- she is based in morristown new jersey; if anyone is driving through there please say and i can try put you in touch; it turns out that this place is very near where sam daley harris lives and so the most active congressman on micro up side
     I jokingly but seriously chat with dr yunus about dhaka being en route to every sustainability city, maybe we should vote morristown USA as on every sustainability journey too.

    the week climaxes with clinton global initiative   - last years' CGI followed the death of lehman and made great yes we can promises- few have reached the people yet; will leaders get down to ground level now we are enetring the last deacde in which the retiurn to human sustainability expoentials is possible?

    this is how we press released NY week to some of london's worst macroeconomics editors

    Time 10 Q

    which is the most diabolical market sector of them all? how did a paper founded to debate microeconomics get taken over by the disgraceful political chicanery of macroeconomics?

    sunshades in october - did you ever bother to read my dad's classic work on terror caused by economists who cock it up when they become gurus with past theories to defend ? did you ever read founders James Wilson curious purpose of The Economist?

    has ever media cocked up humanity';s sustainability like recent decades?

    in november volkvagen -and other global friends of bangladesh and of the 20th fall of the wall -  will use their stadium at wolfsburg to invite 100 global brand ceos to verify whether their global market is free to value sustainability's exponentials

    in december ministers miliband and alexander have invited bangladesh to lead sane climate debates in copenhagen, and probably the greatest economist of our time manmohan singh has invited Dr Yunus to speak to the Indian parliament and yet The Economist hasnt even invited Yunus to a friday lunch

    I wonder which side the BBC and The Economist will turn out to have been on when the review of sustainability valuation is there for the world to see

    Can you help us issues to play the world Record Jobs Game

    example invitation to Organisation of American States 

     Dear Organisation of American States

    Do you have time to play the World Record Jobs game for one hour? This could happen at a breakfast meeting or an evening happy hour if thats how you prefer youths most creative experiments to be appraised.
    WRJ is a youth-valuation survey (active learning) game that's as simple as possible to play
    rule 1 each player is given 3 minutes to vote for a list of maximum 12 world record job creators
    rule 2 the group then negotiates a grid of 3 rows and 4 columns- the process seeks to put world record job creators in the same space if being a socially active alumni of any member in that space has similar kinds of exponential impact
    the players then debrief their collaborative view of the world's most joyful job creators with a benchmark friends of my family's foundation (unacknowledged giant of maths and media) update.  Examples for our current benchmark game are footnoted
    the game can end there or it can be discussed as an internal survey process or one that seeks to exchange with like-minded institutions valuing youth's sustainability and empowering a borderless race to end  extremes of inequality eg such OAS partners as blum or the youth summit networks at the world bank
    if at any future time the group wants to contribute publicly to the search for world record job creation we encourage them to open up a blog or similar platform
    our maths and open systems advisers hope to develop an app version of world record jobs game in coming months
    It would be great if we could rehearse this game once before late march when Amy's youthful Chinese mediation friends aim to test how youth alumni of vatican  university play this game in Rome as part of the launch celebrations of a worldwide youth empowerment network
    chris macrae  240 316 8157
    benchmark pope francis:
    take a handful of his speeches (eg to US Congress , UN, Mexico, EU Strasbourg ...)  on value of families and sustainability of youth - search for which faith or culture leaders through history have prioritised valuing similar communal actions
    understand the various apps of the Americas' 1960s emergence of Preferential Option Poor - -eg how the poorest muslim village women built 100+million nation from this micro-system design; how young professional most valued community health service networks around this model (Partners in Health); how a most vibrant refugees community servant model in usa "la maestra" is sustained and replicated -and has the founding dna of a 13 year old girl's effect
    understand how rome is a different epicentre for europe's future worldwide friendships of youth than say brussels- eg club of rome offers a leading green network, the annual nobel peace summit, and the intent to invite superstars to co-launch the new underground colliseum around a worldwide celebration of sustainable youth , ...
    benchmark sal khan or some similar open learning platform co-creator:
    if the way to unite nations around the biggest change era ever is 17 sustainability goals, why not start up an on-demand curriculum of each - the way sal khan built the world's benchmark maths curriculum illustrates key open learning processes: dashboard, translation into every language, a desire to replace any teaching module if a better short way of presenting this is searched
    if the UN does not have the resources or time to launch 17 parallel platforms why not choose one goal first. Goal 11 could be the simplest for spiraling inter-generational goodwill. Since sustainable communities and future capital cities already have hundreds of mayors nominating their own favorite pro-youth collaboration - eg the network of mayors who most want to reduce youth suicides in their places find it natural to include youth-led experiments from every city's mayor concerned with this initiative.  Quito's first year review of goal 11 in october 2016 would be a suitable space for launching such
    What seems livelihoods-critical to World Social Trades emerging from goal 11 is that one universally agreed web bookmark provides an updating coding databank of social solutions being demanded by sustainability youth and their intergenerational investors. This needs to be open to people of all ages and geographies to access- if the UN agreed this bookmark could be joyfully linkedin from its home page

    ammauni - help celebrate and amrati university

    In 2015, our 44th year since first debating in The Economist whether elders of the pre-digital age would be up
    to designing education millennials need to be sustainable and to 
    enjoy wonderful livelihoods, we have been led to believe by Women4Empowerment that alumni and partners of amma may be leading
    the top 10 partnerships of open learning that values millennials across every country 

     if you are an alumni of amma we always like to co-share news of your next actions; lead partners were last reviewed by UNai July 7 2015 -

     in 2014 our top new find was the opne learning campus being designed around millenial foolowers of jim kim ,
    paul farmer, poper francis and others (across americas, rome and catholics as the largest socially accountable identity) who help millennials tahe on sustainability transformations through the POP (Preferantial Option Poor) 

    in 2013 our hope was that China, brac and the elearning satellite yazmi would come together
    in celebrating education as the greatst way to empower development

    in 2012 we were hioping that south african poartnbers of taddy blecher and mandela extranet's million jobs curricukum woulkd linking through every african ihub 

    we continue to believe that education is the only rational model of economics designed around maximnising ineteractions of 7.25 billion peoples livelihoods

    The Sustaibability Goal World can no longer afford universities who segregate their alumni- we second jim kim's plea

    that we invest in all 12 to 35 years olds who most want to linkiin and action sustainabilioty movements of 2030now as one meta-generational alumni group

    Which are the top 10 University Partnership Networks valuing millennials collaboration rights to sustainability?

    rsvp here's world record jobs creation book's preliminary research 

     Top 10 University Partnership Networks freeing all sustainability millennials to be collaboration alumni of each otherwhats unique about ways of entreing this partnhership 
     Amma University

     This partnership is supported by UNAI- United Nations Academic Impact newtorkersrk - since the UN is also demading millennaisl celebrate its sustainability goals its logical that any millennial who can passionaetly contribute will be welcomed by this partnership- please report any devaitions from this expectation

    amma, out of South India, is arguably the most trusted woman empowering 2030now; she is energised by the huge errors of separating science from consciousness/spirit

    her university already has world leading foci such as nanotechnolgy and its POP - preferential option Poorest 

    ammalabs invite students to come and do an experiment in a poorest village with mentoring from ammauni and take the results back so as to dhance the way the related curriculum at the students home universiuty is taught 

     POP goes the world banks open elarning campus It all started so fast - jim kiim was contributing his pop curridulum to change the world moocs as a way of inviting all milennaisl to take it on - demonsytrated by how he and framjer had taken on global social partners in helath, and conformed as culturallu heroic by Pope Francis. Then thye world banks's coursera partnership appermtly refused to ley youth MOOC with Kim- we can only suppose that the world bamnki hasnt fully kept up with the culture jim kim asks youth to value. If these disconnects are not remedied by start of world banmk year lima october 2015 it will be one of the most uneconomic failings world bank educator groups have ever been responsible for
     Women4Empwermenmt -while not based at any single university , 20 yeras of  pop of mobiloe applications for worlds pooerst women- puts W4E way ahead on innovation apps and fashion now that first ladies networks get that open elarning can change the world for the better; w4E is one of the first major practice movements to test out yazmi's teach in beaming down knowhow to everyone
     Blecher/Maharishi/ Mandela exraranet partners out of sopith africa-  Over 15 yeras of pionneering the greatest job craetingt curricula previous;ly never taught- ths is curretly yazmi's number 1 sel;ection to ebam everywhere
     IHUBS and borderless entrepreneur competitions

     -pls email chris.macrae@yahoo.cop.u to add your youth linkin

    could dc organisers invite kim's most valued youth publicist to World Children's Festival 2015?

    STORY Filippino Pabsy Assigned to be Sustainability Millennials Publicist inside world bank
    This year jim kim made a twentysomething filipino girl michelle pabalan main youtube reporter of his key headlines for sustainable millennials  (if i recall after indonesia , philippines is a major akira fan nation)PABALAN-see eg this Google or this note of my family linking 50 cities youth with goals as joyful as yunus

    could your dc organisers invite her to World Children's Festival 2015?

    Kim also deploys 2 young women from atlanta cnn to report millennials south- is there someone at atlanta japan consular who could invite them and laura turner to review her family billion dollar spend n putting millennials into the PPP the UN has spent last 15 years on

    if they do organise a meeting to discuss joint goals would be fantastic to include yazmi content producer dr ranga who is in DC too we'd love to be beaming down some of her good news

    by the way Fringe co-branding of olympiad- when I visited rome's priority youth networks in February I was shown Rome's latest  discovery an underground collisseum- goal is to celebrate they Rome Reborn 2.2: A Tour of Ancient Rome in 320 CE where fringe events at the collisseum in culture, POP faith, Open Society and Peace would be celebrated by millennials as much as sports stars -main competitor to rome is boston - how do we make 2024 each way good news -main useful brit would be michael palin - he trued to celebrate brazil in time to integrate olympics- he has been great supporter of dubai and accompanies niala to grameen vilage mobile phone ladies- mostofa can relay him an emial if someone can word a first invitation- palin is the last cutural repirter left on BBC world service- he is also nerd popuar since monty python is timeless on human absurdity without any of the offensive way french humor bites- ustr as anthroplogists needed to found partners in health, guess they are core to all grassroots cultral conflict resolution and professional satygraha

    The United Nations calls 2015: most transformational year in its existence

    If so a bit of future history briefing may be timely
    Back in 1972 Gross World Product of 3.5 billion people was approximately 3.5 trillion dollars (average of $1000 was very unevenly distributed; around 2013 Gross World Product of 7 billion people was approximately 70 trillion dollars ( average of $10000 ) - note figures per working person rise once you adjust for children and those too old to work
    Norman Macrae surveys:
    created net generation curriculum of Entrepreurial Revolution- celebrated primary duty of economists as ending poverty by maxising livelihood opportunies of all peoples- from Norman's 20th C  view the Eastern Hemisphere and wordwide youth collaborations offered huge opportunities to advance the human lot provided market systems were designed around purposeful human livelihoods

    Ways of Exploring YUNUS Social Business Models and Youth Ambassador networks
    50 questions to muhammad yunus and anyone who feels many things spun unsustainably in the 2000s and have not yet been systemically put back on courses for 7 billion wonderful livelihoods to be sustained

    Discuss Global Grameen case launched by DR Yunus for 2010s as a global brand network connecting all of his partners and social business design.

    MAPPING SUSTAINABILITY WORLD -in  death kof distance era that diaries show 2030 will spend 4000 times more spent on worldwide communications than 1946

    What if society is main investor to exponentially sustain in value echanges or free markets?

     individuals livelihoods are main producers to sustain;

    and organisational system anyway need to be responsible partners in a world where no organisation is an island to networks; no borders can afford to compound externalisation of risks

    We invite Q&A on Hundreds of Social Business Cases inspired by the orignal Bangaladesh System design and made world famous by Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus.
    This case bank is compiled by the
     Social Business Action Team since 2007. Our projects yunus dvd 10000Social Business bookclub - now the authorised outreach centre to citizens and youth ambassadors. You can contact us via chris.macrae Washington DC 301 881 1655

    the first law of social business: ownership 0% top-down shareholders. & 100% (owned) in Micro-Up trust for those in longest compound need to be served

    ok there are 2 variants beyond investors in starting up social business being offered their money back
    while there are never any dividends, the issue of who owns the equity of the potentially most purposeful organsiation (defined by its social goal) has been left ambiguous- eg in theh world's largest public social business fund designed by danone communituies out of paris, the fund's equity is owned by the funder

    Help with this CHECK LISTING rsvp
    There are actually a lot of reasons why stick at 0% siphoned out

    • 1 this is the pure system of end poverty –stop big colonist capitals sucking out sustainability of local communities or worse causing them to be their own waste buckets or depressing area 
    • 2 this is the pure maths that is the opposite of Wall Street Spreadsheeters - being ruled by one side rewarded for how much it extracts from every other, every quarter 
    • 3 it is in effect the Bangladeshi invention that both grameen and brac compounded the world’s most purposeful orgs around and ten times more economic local community systems around -(cf prahalad bot of pyramid search for 10 times more economic) 
    • 4 constitutionally as soon as an org has well maybe 1% can go to external shareholders, its always possible when the organization has a difficult time –eg its leader retires- that some lawyer will be hired to turn 1% siphoning to 100% 
    • 5 0% should allow a social business to claim that it be treated in law as not for taxation 
    • 6 0% should be arguable both to charities and to governments as a better model than anything they do to serve the weakest 
    • 7 if every partner in a network is a 0% social business then you are safer than if you have to audit seem that are these hybrid social bus jesses ; in fact the hybrid can bring down the whole network 
    • 8 as far as I know both nature & mathematicians integrate 100% micro up -reasoning compound even 1% conflict with sustainablity into a system and over time whole truth will be zeroised

    question from part of series exploring top 30 future capitals and space of pro-youth economics

     Dear Dr Yunus
     In various events co-hosted with you in Glasgow from 2008 to 2010, you committed to Scottish youth's future livelihoods being one of the top 10 partners with your worldwide development maps in Bangladesh

     we understand you want ScotLand to help with staffing the foundations of Grameen Nursing College

     what else do we have to deliver as partnerships you need so that you help us with our future freedoms which are economically complex given that we are ruled both out of London by UK and out of Brussels by EU?

     like various nations at extreme borders of EU, there is no evidence that Brussels spends a second on the unique sustainability challenge of scotland millennials that we can find; we do however have one safety net in that we are at one end of Europe's geographical space- with no neighbours ever likely to see any purpose in going to war with us co-sponsor of scottish celebrations with muhammad yunus and co-pilot of journal of social business - a 70th birthday wish of MuhamMad Yunus made in glasgow

    2 Global Grameen -open source property asserted by The Social Busienss Action Team - Q&A welcomed by team - chris.macrae

    How might You & Us script sustainability’s return to Global Free Markets of 2010s ?

    If you look at the high trust assumptions built into the community-based construct of Adam Smith’s Free markets, the idea that sustainability should NOT be integral to the valuation of corporations in global free markets is mad and off course from a globalization that my daughter and your grandchildren deserve, let alone the humanity the world owes to the girl power of the seventh of children born into the bottom billion.

    Global Grameen's Good News is Social Business’s leading attempt by every friend of Dr Yunus to end such fallible system designs as Globalization and the macroeconomics of too big too fail have spun into the midst of communities around the world. Why not help humanity counter this by connecting round 2010s as Joy of Life Decade?

    Global Grameen  was launched Nov 2009 out of the Volkswagen Autostadt in Wolfsburg thanks to Grameen Creative Labs ( Autostadt is a themed conference centre to the history and future of cars designed round the original Volkswagen  factory. It turned out that Dr Yunus has a history with Volkswagen. As a teenage boy scout he was one of about 20 who returned from the world Scout Jamboree in Canada overland across Europe. Their calculation was they could substitute for the high cost of an airline ticket in the mid 1950s with a boat trip across the Atlantic and then an overland cross-continental treck back to Bangladesh buying 3 VW vans for the main part of that journey. These they sold for a profit when they reached Bangladesh. Perhaps not quite incidentally it is rumored that Volkswagen is responding to a modern day R&D challenge in which Dr Yunus has asked for the most ecological engine, part car, part boat that could be economical for rural Bangladesh’s trips across land and water.

    With a mixture of such global breakthrough R&D challenges and thoroughly open networking exchanges of existing knowledge of life critical kinds, the aim if Global Grameen is to become the world’s favourite global branding of sustainability partnerships. Grameen Social Business design open sources the world’s number 1 sustainability investment  model. Partners bring local or global markets that may not hitherto have been free to value sustainability’s compound exponential.

    The Grameen ABC started with GND: G Global Grameen, N Nobel and D Danone. This triangle integrates:

    G’s global sustainability investment maps for social business networks

    N’s world stage and desire to see peace and economics connect. Bangladesh has a definition which the senior Nobel judge came to celebrate in opening a museum at Grameen Bank and praising a large crowd of Bangladeshi youth – developing economics is the process, tools and system designs by which people strive for peace and prosperity 

    D links innovation of nutritional dairy goods for poorest infants, to creating one of the first global social business funds that has already sponsored a Chinese microcredit with Grameen. This is a fitting parallel to the first non-financial service of  Grameen Microcredit (carrot seeds reported above)


    What does more of the emerging Grameen Global ABC partnerships in sustainability look like?

    Among other entries into Global Grameen alphabet of social business that we expect to be particularly celebrated in 2010s are:

    A is for Adidas (one dollar shoe protecting against worm and other diseases bare foots can cause) and for Ali Baba, whose founder has challenged yunus and Grameen to join in co-creating 100 million new jobs for China during the 2010s.

    B is for BASF starting with micronutrient sachets and mosquito nets as social businesses

    I is for Grameen Intel which could bridge digital divides like no other brand duo

    V is for Veolia, a French water company who has partnered Grameen to make safe drinking water at a priced at about 80 times less than any commercial business has been able to serve

    Why is the 2010s the most exciting decade to be alive and to change the world?

    2010s is the sustainability challenge decade – will we regain sustainability communally or blow if it for future generations?  Global Grameen bears a great responsibility as do we all for Yes We Can networking solutions around millennium goals whose deadlines the world’s nations agreed for 2015. Sustainability Olympics and other global media events can connect celebrations of the millennium peoples everywhere want to participate in as well as the champions we heroise. what would you like to be a yunus alumni of? which are top 10 curricula to make as nearly free to school as possible if race to poverty museum is to be united with youth by 2030? http://worldcitizen.tv
