Norman Macrae -The Economist pro-youth economist -bravo sir fazle abed & jack ma
Who would miss what if Paris never existed as worldwide Social Business Capital?
Who'd Miss What?
Youth would miss chance of 2010s being most exciting and productive decade. Instead as Norman's last articles written in 2008 mapped: USA and EU will lose a generation of youth and jobs to a macroeconomic meltdown characterised by serial slumps and disinvestment in youth's futures
Peoples and hi-trust economists around the world would miss the entrepreneurial revolution of the world's genius microeconomist (Yunus) extending his innovation reforms to freeing sustainability of all life-changing globally mediated markets and not just banking
Better care at one eighth the cost?
Human race would probably miss its last best chance to change half a century of expoenentially flawed investments (eg in nuclear and carbon energy; in making healthcare ever more costly until in USA life expectancy has actually gone down because of how many cant afford it ..) back to valuing sustainability above all other criteria- something mathematicians since Einstein have bet odds against when technology makes a first generation more connected than separated
More specifically the cluster of yunus parners in paris - danone, credit agricole, veolia, etc - all connect genius projects on ending hunger and ending death by lack of clean water. Their microup solutions provide a counter to everywhere that macroeconomic EU policies has inconveniently externalised extra poverty, hunger or scarcity of water. In a second wave of partnership projects, the knowledge to change everything that the MBA-virus has made unsustainable through context-blind macroeconomics or big organisational design valuing externalisation and short-term more than compounding youth's sustainable futures.
Sarkozy and Cameron would never have debated their twin nation's chance of teaming up for youth social business funding through big society banking (funded by unused/dormant accounts) - and the BBC and France 24 would fail to encourage each other to map what social busienss world service could empower youth movements tosocial action and celebrate through exciting 2010s http://www.notimeleft.org Media would have no way of becoming smart and joyfully sustainable again.
Those with the longest reponsibility for their nations youth - including european royal families -wouldnt have an Entrepreneurial Revolution to action learn from at the heart of Europe's United States. Christine Lagarde would not have direct experience of a microeconomic miracle creating record numbers of startups
