- the diary of hope - how can under 30s change edu and sustain the planet

Questioning The Economist - Does a civilisation need to collapse , or can the creative destruction of a political system like washington's happen without damaging next generation's livelihoods?

JOBS for youth - Clinton 0/10 Obama 0/10 Bush 0/10 .- Trump?

Its not as if a clinton, bush or obama has valued the sustsinability genetration's learning economy the way my father mapped Entrepreneurial Revolution 45 yeras ago - so why single out Trump?

question from economistuniversity and worldyouthcommunity to jobs economists and anyone who loves cfreative chioldren and half of the world now under30

for many quarters of a century from 1776 USA was the learning nation of entrepreneurship- of how small medium enterprise were the lifeblood of communitiey sustainbaility and next generation livelihoods

if not when did it stop being the learning nation of SME entrepreneurship

what can parnets, community nd educators do about this situation and integral issues of hoiw usa interfaces with sustainability oif half of the whole world- the under 30s who are now virtually connected by death of cost of distance of the era of the www - and who want livelihoods that both maximise their local service capoaiv=cities abut access life critical info (and action netwirk solutions) from wherever it was searched first


For the first time the planet of the 1% richest and 24% poorest is seamlessly integrated - determining sustainability of all of us in between too!

In 2016 we have entered the most exciting decade - the last one in which the half of the world under 30 can unite humanity in sustainability, Note implications for edu and empowering worldwide youth friendship exchanges of half of youth being geographically situated within 3000 miles of Beijing 





Q  The most exciting time to be alive- what and why?

A Our decade determines human sustainability- what's your life doing for that>  ..check out one young lady's open space concerns worldwide youth with UN 17 sustainability goals.



They are the half of the world's population whose families, lives and livelihoods will be most exponentially impacted if we humans design systems that disrespect nature's evolutionary codes or our elders fail to invest in net generation's livelihoods out of every community, and mess up borderless flows of goodwill



Worldwide youth friendships needs to evolve from a curriculum of mediating sustainability such as:


3 Understand the greatest quick fix that elders spiraled unsustainably out of your country (or faith or ethnic roots or demographic such as female versus male)


2 If your peoples are free to fix it help do so; if not twin up with another country's youth where your understanding can help them open space a solution to their places quick fixes and hopefully vice versa


1 Know that while this is the ultimate goodwill game any generation have ever been asked top web around the world, some youth have more opportunities to kickstart peace and family job creation spirals around the world than others. The half of the world living within 3000 miles of Beijing has been mapped since 1975 by the original diarist of hope as most critical for all sustainability youth to befriend. 


Modernday China is one world's most exciting stories of what the "economically" most underemployed billion people of the third quarter of the 20th century decided to do for humanity as well as themselves as the fourth quarter of the 20th century opened the door to the most exciting development revolution ever spaced by a billion people simultaneously.

In world war, 2 Norman Macrae found himself spending his last days as a teenager navigating RAF planes over modernday Bangladesh and Myanmar. He kept a diary of what it was like to be caught up in this right old mess. More in footnote 1


Surviving the way he went up to Corpus Christi cambridge where Keynes taught him that all economic futures spiral out of rules elders systematically loc next generations into. The only sustainable futures were those designed around uniting the human race to end poverty traps (search Ganbdi's talisman for societal  insight on whole truth). From a nice shabby desk at The Economist in London's Saint James , Norman went on to diarise many of  the biggest decisions made in the third quarter  the 20th century including

first jourmalist at european union

first journalist to understand how the world's biggest public broadcaster was lost to political soundbiting (see  the Donald Trump today for insights)


Diagnosis of how public healths services started up with a nobel purpose but were within a year r two spinning intergenerational loss of sustainability - they would become unaffordable ponzi schemes wherever old non-working people took over  as voting majorities (or vested interests) from the opportunities of parenting youth to enjoy a better opportunity at life

What is economics and who's it for?

Maynard Keynes wrote the most scary non-fiction book (General Theory) I've ever read - actually the denoument in the last 3 pages is what to browse first

Writing in the 1930s - perhaps the scariest decade our human race had so far seen - Keynes was concerned with how economists would increasingly rule the world.

The origins of economics that I have studied from Scots like Adam Smith onwards were well intended. Basically they explored how systems linking our working lifetimes could compound better opportunities for our next generations and whether concepts on how to lead places like nations were safe or risky in systemising futures . More on mapping goodwill economics here ...

However Keynes also raised the what if academic economists ever hire themselves out to the most powerful who pay for systems to be designed round extracting the most from other people in short-term ways regardless of sustaining our next generations' futures. Unfortunately this is precisely the sort of globalisation that has been spun ince 1984 suggesting that Orwell's Big Brother ending of how our human race becomes connected by technology may yet be the most likely outcome. For example the western banking crises that spread out of USA through the 2000s reaching a complete collapse of trust in 2008 have so far been fixed by making young people pay by putting them out of work. Politicians have chosen to make youth pay for old people's debts. Even more absurd is the rating games maths. The future of a nation is not mainly dependent on how much debt elders have run up but in this age when networking techology could make us all 10 times smarter and more collaboratively productive, a place's future depends on how well it invests in the net generation - see ideas from people who believe the net generation can still be worldiwde youth's most productive time at

It isn't only big banks that have been taken over by a collapsing system mindset. After 9/11 I re-read my grandfather;s 25 years of works as a Bar of London Barrister assigned to first imprison Gandhi and then helping him write up the legalese of India's Independence. By 2004 I was presenting a paper at the Indira Gandhi Centre for culture in Delhi on transparency and compound risks of every sort. I called it the coming wars between goodwill and badwilling networks. As a mathematician it is possible to define goodwill in terms of how inclusive a multi-win model is any organssiation being governed around versus how much is it externalising risks onto the weakest in a maddening rush by one most powerful side of a value exchnage to extract from every other side no matter what the loss of future sustainability is. More on mapping value exchnages as the way to answer whether economics is being ruled by and for all the people, or by fewer and fewer big brothers


Keynes conclusion - economists are only capable of expoentially compounding one of two opposite futures- designing or destroying what most people want most for theur chlderns children. This suggests that economics literacy needs to be designe into MOOCs for every age group. Interetsingly the wisest finacial literacy curriculum for ten year olds now shared in over 100 countries emerged out of an Indian orphanage. Perhaps those who work in communities from the bottom-up to link togethersolutions  in the race to end poverty deserve to be the most system designers of the net generation. Norman Macrae, as the first economic journalist of the net generation advanced ways for entrepreneurs to debate this an idea in the 1984 book I happily co-authired with him. We had shared a life-changing moment back in 1972 when we first saw experiments connecting hundreds of youth in sharing knowledge around an early digital network.

 What is MOOC. Massive Open Online Courses are the most affordable and colaborative eer to peer learning curriculum. They are at their simples when they web together 12 minute training modules

 -typically five a week making an hous education, and running for 6 to 8 weeks. They can monitor how much potentially millions of simultaneous learners each learn from the course. But going back to the 12 minute module, the simplest question becomes if we could share 12 minutes of knowhow with millions of youth what would be the most important 12 minute training modules of job creation or of co-producing the most exciting huan goals that collaborat6ively networked youth are capable of co--produccing. In particular asks- can we renew economics to be the study of how to design systems to sustain bettter futures for all our childrens children? Can we get back to the agenda of of structuring capital to invest in the net generation being yout;;s most productive, susttianble, collaborative and heroic time to be alive?

letters sent supporting Norman's Celebration of Dr Yunus' pro-youth economics

 Typical letter to mayors offices



We are helping Muhammad Yunus with his inter-state challenge to invest in youth and create jobs that serve societies greatest needs. I am very excited by your recent speech's referral to <NAME> as a company that wants to help mentor DC's young technology wizards. I am trying to link together an inter-state group of opentech mentors.


Would it be possible to talk to you about this? Two years ago, Dr Yunus specifically granted a group of Norman Macrae associates a privilege when he comes to testify to help convene a special student celebration reprising and linking in all the best teams If we can make that one in which technology is being used most socially by all teams, then <YOUR CAPITAL> will become a favorite future capital of Dr Yunus. At the moment the gold standard is being set by Tokyo which is convening a 12000 student competition in January


The right-side leaflet which was circulated at The Economist boardroom remembrance party to my father illustrates how his lifetime work at The Economist and Dr Yunus' blend as two of the leading pro-youth economists - and joyful entrepreneurial revolutionaries -  of our era.


Yours sincerely

.Future Historian: Celebrating 40 Years Ago

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

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

it looked as if Norman's 1984 story of the net generation's ability to change economics was going to be celebrated all over Bangladesh in this people's extraordinary 40th year of freedom and microentrepreneurship. For those of us including Mary Robinson and myself having breakfast in BRAC cafe on 8 Feb the news was a bit more dismal. Of my dad's 2 greatest heroes of the net generation: Sir Fazle was seriously ill and Noble Yunus has got caught up in an odd legal system where he has to attend the first day of any case brought against him at any locality in the country however strange the case. Look at 3 cases so far: is it wrong to increase scale by selling the poor person's rural yogurt for a profit in the city? Actually I find it the only edible desert and have formally complained to Danone in Paris that they were selling it too cheap in the city compared with everything else in the supermarket I use. Did a villager get an erroneous phone bill? Well on that basis I should be calling the CEO of verizon to dock every 6 months, and incidentally Grameen phone is mainly managed by Norwegians. A few years ago when experimenting as to whether to enter politics, did yunus say something slightly impolite about some other politicians? Gee by that yardstick there would be nobody left in US congress. And yet even the world service of the BBC pumps out headlines that fail every principle that 5 generations of my family's work in media holds dear. Anyhow we were there to launch Friends of Grameen and Journal of Social Business, and with a loan from my dad's estate 3000 leaders will soon be getting their own copy of the new Journal on The Joy of Economics that anyone who has journeyed a few days with Dr Yunus knows to be vaut le voyage.

16 Nov 2010: Peers, friends and family of Norman Macrae packed the boardroom of The Economist in London Saint James. They came to celebrate his life and his invitation, complemented by Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus, to make the 2010s the most exciting decade for youth.

We welcome your action maps and networking collaborations for doing these programs now:

2 We have started research on how to put youth in charge of voting for and corresponding round 20 most exciting goals for 2020 - once we can start to see the goals elders will be invited to help sort out media and investment channels - for example inspired by the likes of DanoneCommunities and SingforHope and we expect the popularity of the 20th C tv spot to be dramatically replaced by future capitals with huge youth festivals where top 20 goals are repersented by market stalls at which open solutions are co-published, exchanged and celebrated (goals will emerge as Gpages of this web)

3 The Journal of Job Creating Economics (aka Journal of Social Business) was announced. Last month family members travelled to Dhaka to sign a memorandum with dr yunus guranetting a social bsuiess loan for covering smpling of the first isseu to 3000 leders of his choice. This will be done in ery 2011 ahed of his testimony on joyful economics to US congreess. Copies of jouranl will also be mde to youth & other networks who wish to connect round job creation (or bending poverty) and can arrange their own distribution

Keynes: increasingly only economics rules the world

Norman Macrae, The Economist, 25 December 1976: the third quarter of 20th century has seen macroeconomists destroy all the hi-trust community assumptions of Adam Smith's free market paradigm. Let's celebrate a new capitalism designed by microeconomists before the net generation of the next half century makes global market system wholly interconnected in what exponentials rise or crash

MicroGuide to 5 collaborations to end poverty and sustain humanity

We hope you enjoy our MicroGuide to 5 Collaboration Games that Dr Muhammad Yunus, his alumni including the extraordinary mother of President Barrack Obama, and Bangladeshi networkers have been helping people communally practise for a third of a century.

1 What is


The most exciting entrepreneurial game people play ...

2 What is MICROCREDIT? Designing the safest banking system so that the poorest are also included in developing the world


Designing human processes around opportunity to gravitate collaborative networking to the most urgent sustainability goals of our worldwide generation


Designing partnerships to innovate the most vital human services that integration of global and local free markets can sustain

5 What is Trillion Dollar Industry Sector Sustainability? Joyfully mediating markets to be free: - engage transparency of leadership in severe contests between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress.

system maps for saving the world from wall street and other global meltdowns to 2024


Macraes have exponentially forecast since 1984 that as a system Globalization can only spin one of 2 ends:

Big Brother Orwellian one where big power causes all sorts of crashes, and its always innocent communities that get in harms way first

sustainable one in which we resolve community up win-win-wins, integrate local to global transparently, end systemic poverty, and network the 21st century to be the best of times for all peoples

Can we map the world's trillion dollar global markets
Related reference : G20 of 2020 RSVP DC bureau (US=1) 301 881 1655

Not surprisingly: many of the world's most life critical needs -in every community - correspond to the largest trillion dollar global markets such as G20.1 financial services , G20.2 healthcare, G20.3 energy and G20.4 education.

There are also segments we need to identify which are trillion dolar markets in their own right. Probably the greatest economics lesson of the 2000s was that G20.1.1 basic banking -needed for any community of people to be sustainable and humn productivity to be free - must be designed as a different global market from what the world's richest people sometimes call G20.1.2 merchant banking.

Thanks to the nation of Bangladesh, celebrating its 40th year of grassroots collaboration entrepreneurship in 2011, basic banking offers the world's simplest benchmark for sustainability investors (further references: microcredit models owned by the poorest; social business models owned by those in most life critical need of being served by the organisation's compound purpose)

We suggest that places including nations are a trillion dollar market G20.0 . Much needed links are sought to Future Capitals twinning with knowhow open sourced out of Dhaka's sustainability world trade capital

Where do funs for Social Business come from
Our 10000 dvd club has been helping research this
6:51 pm est

why we support a goals driven approach
we support the view advocated in the closing section of yunus book Builiding Social Business: - in our networking age we can achieve any sustainability goal provided enough people and organisational resources are urgently connected in this purposeful pursuit

in other words once youth start voting on 20 goals for 2020 we can start serching for partners to each goal

its quite likely that league tables representing different youth groups round the world will contain say 15 common worldwide goals and say 5 local goals; having both types of goals is good to map

we can make a start on scaling the wrldwide goals by developing a monthly newsletter page on each goal including practice correspodents and good news scouts

also where thousands of youth meet yunus we encourage people to set up social business stalls one mathcing each goal; give out links or leaflets on known social businesses relevant to the goal; survey youth for other social business they know- let us collect together a catalogue as a shared resource for celebrating solutions to how the world's most exciting decade is inter-actioned.

Where more research is needed we can appeal to such resources as The Journal of Social Business whose first issue is being sampled to the 3000 leaders who excite Dr Yunus most!

Many generations of my family have worked on media and measurements. Until recently,

Our experience is that Free Markets are the most wonderfully creative

Free markets generate
                           healthy society and thence strong economics. They do this when they empower everyone to have a

As with any beautiful human relationships system there is always

By the time Norman Macrae
                           ( ) started writing leaders for The Economist in 1949 he decided never to look at Press Releases. Instead, he would read lots
                                                                                 of stuff which unknown but passionate local observers of economies posted
                           him. He would surround himself in a lot of data,                                                       mentally delete any
                           number where the process of the analysis was unclear, and look for what simplest human learning needed                   
                                                              future debate with an eye to joyfully celebrating innovative social actions.
This made him one of the few investigative journalists of Free Markets  during
                           a quarter of a century                                                       which was to creep up on the integrity of assumptions
                           that are core to Adam Smith’s work , and indeed all the Scottish                                                   
                              and French  whose auld alliance was central to the core values of generations of entrepreneurial alumni  
                                                                               of Adam. The third quarter of the 20th century was one when the richest
                           nations in NW hemispheres caught two macroeconomic                                                       diseases: the television
                           age’s advertising spots, and the loss of true democracy when governments grow big spending                         
                                                        money on military arms and being lobbied by big get bigger not the free get freer.
Over 40 years the vocabulary of dad’s writings increasingly became anchored
                           round the idea of the entrepreneur.                                                       Dad would say however much macroeconomists
                           might pollute the systemic understanding that other free market concepts had been

                           productive assets. When entrepreneur was coined around 1800,                                                       its meaning
                           revolved round the inter-generational purpose:  exponentially rising sustainability of French               
                                                                  peoples’ liberte , egalite and fraternite. 
Norman Macrae’s                                                       work took on increasing
                           levels of urgency at the start of the fourth quarter of the 20th Century when he started penning his

                           10 times more economic or ten times less economic. Invoking the Kenysian charter that only economics rules the world,

                           a final crossroads. Father’s last article written Christmas Day 2008 mapped where we will

Responded to sunday washington post article That Sinking Feeling reviewing latest books on the how the unnecessary exuberance of macroeconomists chains the world to slump

I love this article because when The Economist was founded in 1843 its purpose was to question leaders before they made big decisions. Economics as mediated for nearly 150 years in The Economist was the systemic subject of what we don't know in enough micro detail to risk claiming certainty about big decisions. My father Norman Macrae wrote over 2000 leaders for The Economist demonstrating that systemic exploration through microeconomics focusing on future's compound exponential view of opportunities and threats. He had learnt people-friendly economics from an Indian correpondence course whilst waiting as a teenager to navigate RAF planes out of Bangladesh in world war 2. I see no coincidence in the fact that Bangladeshi economists and entrepreneurs now offer the simplest collaborative maps to go green, to design banks that invest in people's productivity, and as millennium goal solutions entrepreneurs to community sustainability investment rising out of every locality.

By accident my family's archives also include 25 years of Gandhi tutoring British Raj lawyers on what transformation from superpowering over to superempowerment takes, as well as re-reviews of how the network age requires all nations to unite in ending poverty seconded by Einstein and thirded by Von Neumann. It would be timely if 2009's macroeconomists included these sources in their action learning compass. In fact Broookings economists and Georgetown social lawyers got so close to doing this in 2000 with publication on Unseen Wealth but I was told by the chairlady of this report that the incoming texas administration in 2001 tore it up.

Here's a technical PS for media watchers that I didnt feel WP was quite ready for

Free Market of End Poverty

End Poverty is the same micro-rising system map as go green, as rebuild community jobs and banks inside the community, connect entrepreneurs sans digital frontieres so that we end hi-cost marketing channels and get back to free market ones at least for replicating urgent world service franchises. IF UK's BBC and India's DD could partner in an end poverty apprentice show (instead of trump's real estate) we could get back to networking celebrations of 30000 replicable end poverty projects as deemed economically critical for 25 years now Globalisation integrates a media and and economic set of exponential multipliers (up or down) the like of which no generation has ever played with (and quite frankly macroeconomists are as much out of their gravitational depth as newton would be with einstein's theory of relatvity). So getting back to responsible world service among the 2 largest social businesses in broadcasting is a hobby horse of my family. End poverty's olympics ought be the most relevant games of this generation and for social business broadcasters to deny that world service is terrifyingly irresponsible, and a desecration of free market.

There are various things that I didnt even know existed when I tried to write up the 5 collaboration invitations around the world. If Grameen takes one of their editors to my first effort, it can be 10 times better

first I didnt know over 100 people from congress had written to the world bank asking for 200 million dollars to promote collaboration centres of excellence in MFI world (pdf attached not to be circulated openly until public)

second I didnt have the Q&A of Dr Yunus from his world affairs council talk in california in november

Dr Yunus- because you’re the world’s best problem solver I have ever known , I am going to ask you about some of the things that are in the plate of the next president of the united states. He will come in and he will face

  • poverty including new poverty at home and abroad
  • the employment crisis
  • the need to provide quality education for all
  • the need to provide affordable healthcare
  • post-conflict reconstruction and reconciliation

if were you advising the new president, would you urge him to take an integrated approach or to deal with each independently?

Muhammad Yunus

well I can only tell him of my way at looking at it –first of all if he wants to be serious about poverty – after all, the president of US is de facto the president of the world, so what he does impacts the whole world. So when he talka about poverty he provides the leadership that others take.

Now we have the millennium goals which are a wonderful set of goals which inspire all the world but were unfortunately derailed by other things that came up so first of all restore total support for the millennium development goals and withdraw from other stuff united states got involved in such as war on terror,

so concentrate on the one of making sure we achieve the millennium goals, achieve them 100% this will be a tremendous achievement for the whole world that we have done something its not some of UN goal setting and forgetting, this is a real goal and a realty to celebrate having done it

and then for this president the best thing is to show total commitment of ending poverty set a new date when the world can be at zero poverty – we have 2015 at halve poverty so why don't we set the next goal zero poverty so that we know this is the direction we need to take,

when we set the date everything else will fall into place:

how do you measure, how do you do it there are several things that will play an important part

1 microcredit because it has shown its effectiveness in unleashing the capacity of people

2 technology how to bring technology to the poorest people so that they can change their whole world

3 healthcare

so its nothing separated, its integrated but you cant have one organisation doing everything, you need several organisations but focused so that everything is achieving the same goal to lift the person

and as the president is declaring the date for zero poverty in the whole world at the same time encourage the united states to set their date when their city be zero poverty when their county gets to zero poverty - if someone says well we have no poverty how do you know if you have poverty or not –its very simple the first question I ask is do you have a welfare program, a welfare department? As long as you have a welfare department you have poverty, otherwise why do you have it, poverty means that nobody is on welfare tat is clear sign so you have to close down your welfare department, find something else for those people to do, so all the related things you have to welfare you close down as you have crossed that level and you are never going back- city by city, county by county, state by state, it can be done and it will encourage everyone else –

that state can do it, we can do it

this is the way to go, so poverty will be the challenge –and once you have solved poverty other solutions come right away, environment will come right away- like in the case of bangladesh environment and our survival is an integrated problem, we are the ones on the front line – eliminated by global climate change because of our flat country, so for us its such an important issue

the united states missed the whole leadership on the global warming issue, never got to the Kyoto protocol and as a result the whole world got derailed, now is the chance to go back to preparing for the 2012 UN binding resolution .. that way you n=know where you are

the moment government becomes serious , technology starts going in, its not a question of it cant be done , simply we have to make a serious commitment that we will do it-the moment we make the serious commitment, technologies will come , how do we replace the things that are causing the problem, replacing them with new technology without harming anyone in any way

the present way of living life in a way which might enjoy life today but may be harming someone else’s life somewhere on the planet, its not a good feeling: I am doing something that puts someone else life at stake because of the way I do things – so the basic principle we should all adopt, every child should be taught, every family be taught my way of living should not harm anyone else , and that’s how I would like to live

its possible once you make that commitment all the environmental problems will be solved

third I was not aware that aimed to extend its mobile community accounting partnerships with MFIs in making a market of 250 million zero-carbon households to other millennium goals where rewards could be given to poor communities that innovate replication's way

I expect that the various ways people are building around dr yunus and bangladesh and kenya as a collaboration centres of gravity for sustainability world are far more than those I have accidentally heard about. In 2009's yes we can year, he has become the person my father's 1984 script on the future of human sustainability anticipated cheerleading collaboration economics world

Our 1984 scenario of an internetworking world

Changing communications, and what makes people distant, bossy, etc

Changing national politics

Changing economics

Changing employment

Changing education

My father's lifetime testimony's to economics core truths
My father's lifetime testimony's to economics core truths Truth number 1 is that at all costs we -the whole human race - always owe it to our children and future generations to design measurements so that no large organisational system - communist or capitalist - gets taken over by a small group of people at the top who end up defending their own vested interests in exclusion to all others

dad's learning curve:
early 1930's -dad and peter drucker bumped into each other at the british embassy in stalin's moscow - (my dad led an itinerant childhood as his dad was a british consular - granddad who had originally been told by his parents to join the clergy had been studying religion in Heidelberg when the first world war broke out - with his newly learned German tongue he became a micro-spy for the british- after which embassy work instead of church work was naturally more appealing -it was an extraordinary multi-hemisphere experience from his first assignment in Porto Alegro - that part of Brazil where the world social forum was later born - through moscow through the adriatic port at the end of the 1930s where european jews escaped to israel... monitoring how the world's most entrepreneurial people were chased out of one place to another by big over-powering systems (foot 1) and new media abusively used is in our family's blood so to speak)

that decade as hitler also spawned, influenced all Pete's and Norm's 20th century unmanagement literature don't wish to be managing a big organisation unless you have designed in metrics and overall purpose to keep it entrepreneurially small -later by 1980 wealthy nations were already primarily service economies and it became clear to those who map systems (and networks= system**N) that post-industrial revolution generation1984-2024 would be that one whose responsibility determined whether we would integrate localities in a globally sustainable/exponentials way or one that start compounding the destruction oif every natural and human value as both einstein and gandhi had made their favourite 1930s debate

by 1943 my dad was in his late teens studying an Indian correspondence course in economics whilst waiting to navigate RAF airplanes out of Muslim Bangladesh's airports in world war 2; this flow of economics contexts helped him question milton keynes as the last generation at cambridge to be directly taught by that economist; by 1950 he started nearly half a century at The Economist provoking severe tests of leadership visioning on what global market sectors were they building- with a questioning style of MICRO entrepreneurial journalism that remains unequalled in NW hemispheres unless you can link me to where else it is being mediated washington dc bureau, (Dec 2008), usa tel 301 881 1655

foot 1:(led by people who had become so separated at the top that they were eventually blind, mad or bad by any profiling measures human beings know how to develop)

a few mindset-destabilising introductions before I'd want to discuss the future of infotech

1 When Dr Yunus gave the following speech nov 08 at a glasgow uni - one of the audience was - scotland's wealthiest businessman - he is reputed to have stood up and said the least we can do to honor you muhammad yunus is to start some action projects - the vice chancellor then committed to a micro grameen bank for glaswegians some of whom come from 3 generations of welfare - student exchange schemes and a yunus innovation lab at glasgow university are two of the other early consequences to watch out for- if it wasnt so dismally serious after the meltdown of wall street i'd crack up with laughter whenever I hear the word entrepreneur being used by big corporate people- the whole study of entrepreneurship was designed round open systems questioning begun late 1700s by scots (including the 1843 founder of The Economist) and french who wanted to take down english empire systems so that people and communities could be free and happy to be productive and innovative to their hearts content -true entrepreneurs always map with the transparency and openness of microeconomics -knowing, as my father wrote in 1984 in The Economist, that as the mass media age compounded macroeconomics become apalling political chicanery

2 as a teenager infotech empowered going to the moon - bit for collaboration bit man and computing has never been so collaboratively teamworked and productive since -its very dismal compared with what computer learning networking trials that I worked on 1973-1976 in the UK National Dev program discovered could have been and which dad I wrote up in time for 1984 dad had also surveyed silicon valley at its birth for The Economist- its very sad what compounded compared with what venture capitalism could have been -this intro is needed because the paper you sent me jerry isnt framed (doesnt use the lingo the q&a the anything I can find ) for micro people like me to read. It seems written for big managers speak

So I think this its about a vital area to explore but one where the paper would need rewriting for a different audience; if the controversial review below is ok to start a conversation why not load your paper up at a thread of just as many other professions I have been spun by big gets bigger global , infotech is certainly being spun the wrong way round vis a vis the view of developing people learning and doing not taking them over with machines and nonsense metrics used solely by big brother management

your last paragraph says the purpose of a business organization is to make profit; even if I didn’t try to champion dr yunus work then unlike macro-Big Brother milton friedman those of us media people who transparently map goodwill true compound/impacts of economics expomentials define the purpose of a business has = to get communally better at its unique purpose while entrepreneurially validating that purpose is in demand by sustaining enough positive cashflow to stay independent and reward long-term investors (who may have been the community that first pioneered the service but whomever they are there needs to be transparency around how much they deserve to take out as opposed to how much goes back into the societies most involved in the impacts of the business on people’s working lives, environmental resources, where the knowledge connects other knowledge etc) - i map economics of all free markets aroubnd a 10-win model based around compounding goodwill and there is no free market economics practice as originally defined by adam smith unless people mediate free speech around this model

the topic of what adam smith meant to be free markets is nicely celebrated in last month's glasgow speech. Of course, you can do both types of businesses. Making money through responsible profit-maximizing businesses could be the means, while using that money for social businesses could be the exciting end.

The solutions to many of our world’s pressing problems could be accelerated through the creation of social businesses.

It is up to you to make it happen.

If you choose this path, paying attention to your conscience and to human sympathy as well as to the design for wealth, you will be the true economic person Adam Smith had in mind.

some other things about the tone of your paper which would need stylistic editing but I dont know if they change its content to are I dont believe in what Harvard's MBA monopoly curriculum has conditioned the world to think of management (a word whose origin means how to break in horses); I believe in access to information that empowers learning by doing ; my number 1 measure of productivity is: what % of your lifetime do you spend at the experiential edge of your own most valued competence - if we maximized that across 7 billion people we would sustain 10 times more wealth and health in the knowledge networking age that both drucker and von neumann mapped but which big corporate knowledge management does the very opposite of SCOTT MCNEALY SUNthere is quite a revolutionary as well as dare I say character torn by being at infotech's economics cusp of macro and micro in scott McNealy of sun micro systems; he presents models on open computing; he shows that (e)governments are always the last to adopt new info tech because they do their costings wrong at tendering; they may look at cost of buying and cost of operating but they dont look at cost of exiting the system for a better one; he says he comes to Washington monthly to try to argue this case - presumably we need it to breakthrough if obama is to ever find out how ict can do good in American government

his talks show that 2 opposite info tech sectors are appreoaching fusion- those whose business models are to capture your work so you are dependent on their system eg led by Microsoft Capitalism and those whose model is the opposite; I call McNeally complex to say the least because he is also quite capable of defending pharma by saying we need large investments in breakthrough stuff; I dont disagree with investment paradox but I dont accept big pharma as a good example of rewarding investment

(arguably if 2 people needed to be locked away in a room for a day to see if their life's flows around ICT have a match it would be yunus and mcnealy as far as my limted information on who moves where infotech goes - perhaps others could vote for what odd couple they would dream of connecting so ict did its best for empowering people instead of its worst for powering over us)

the role of technology in all the crises, we who side with microentrepreneurs and yes we can obama networks are living through, seems to me to open up huge areas of debate but ones that the infotech nerds are by themselves least capable of hosting for humanity's sake and their role in big NW corporations has dismally black boxed; I am not sure if we know some peers who might want to make an email action learning group of where it could go

Dear Friends of Micro/Community-Rising

Although its 18 minutes long this audio podast is worth every second imo

It describes April Allderdice system being tested in Uganda with microcredit partner FINCA by This is the sort of example I hoped cgdev's tuesday title of metrics and micro was refering to. Let's map back the future's exponentials to today's community empowerment to see how we get a clean energy market of 250 million clean households carbon credited by whole truth community accounting from the grassroots up.

Most global carbon offset marketmakers like easy plays of monitoring a big facility and all its credits in one observation. So brilliantly MEC gives FINCA a mobile gadget to audit and aggregate individual households which end carbon use with solar and biogas. Energy is the only the first of a series of mobile aggregation credit markets that MEC expects to monitor in proving who is empowering millennium goals and who isn't - community by community which is deeply where all sustainability is won or lost .As Yes We Can trust Obama knows since his mother was a pioneer of microcredit in Indonesia and womens world banking

phew what simple exponentials maths can do! Ironically the previous evening cgdev meeting was all about exponentials. Both Einstein and Von Neumann worked very hard to map why neither accountant nor dev agency let alone economist

is worth a bean if they separate global from being micro grounded.

2009 is probably sustainability's last crossroads for making that turn round as my dad first argued from his desk at The Economist in 1984

We are writing up a brochure mapping the 5 most brilliant end poverty collaboration netwrk invitations that Dhaka's Microeconomists has given the world in the last 30 years which I can post to you (if you like) at the same time as it goes to Dr Y. Ditto I will make a transcript of the above podcast over the weekend. ( -and oh yes the roots of MEC are Dhaka-inspired too.)

Dear yunus friends of economics * peace

16 November 18.30-20.30, The Economist Boardroom , 25 St James's Street

I write on the advice of XXX invite you to the remembrance party of my father Norman Macrae , a lifelong journalist at The Economist whose special editorial foci included : entrepreneurship, the economics of youth & peace, Asia Pacific Century which he first branded in survey of 2 billion people in 1975 and as first journalist of the internet - 1984 book forecast that the internet generation would be the most exciting & productive ever if and only if it changed economics to end poverty Changing economics

In my dad's last years he identified with Dr Yunus as the number 1 economist of peace's community empowerment, value multiplying sustainability exponentials and win-win-win globalisation.

Dad celebrated his 85th birthday in 2008 with dr yunus as guest of honor at the Royal Automobile Club as part of St James' celebrations of dr yunus first social business book tour. Perhaps the best news yet of this decade is that Sam's grassroots network 30 years of work summited last month in getting two thirds of US congress to vote for Dr Yunus as Genius Economist to testify to them. If London's capital whose communications has historically spun so much colonial havoc is also to be changed to celebrate bottom-up sustainablity goals, then economically lets mobilise from one village to the next. The first visible good news from St James is Charles converting his palace to solar.

In trying to multiply goodwill's news, part of my dad's estate will offer social business loans to Zasheem (in the middle of Dr Yunus' partnerships with Glasgow Universities and Adam Smith archivists) to launch the journal of social business and missing economics - sampled to 3000 leaders of Dr Yunus' and his family's choice.


My father's voyage around Asia Pacific century started in editorial terms with Consider Japan in 1962 so we are proposing that a series of leaflets Consider Bangaldesh is now timely as part of celebrating the mediating genius that is urgently needed to change economics from top-down and lose-lose-lsoe speculative to bottom up and win-win-win hi-trust collaborative.

On more practical matter, father's father in law was the barrister Sir Kenneth Kemp who spent his life being mentored by Gandhi (supported by friends Einstein & Montessori) on how to change English colonial law to stimulte India's Independence. From Sir Kenneth, 2 social action editorial beliefs resonate round my family and friends networks:

*Nothing is Impossible

*DO NOW: A circle of perhaps 100 Beyond lose-lose-lose (replacing the professionlas of separtion nd externalisation) now need to hub together so that youth can practice social business system designs, cross-culturl joy and job creation networking to their hearts content

May I leave others' cc'd to pick up the story or offer you more background.
