Norman Macrae -The Economist pro-youth economist -bravo sir fazle abed & jack ma
In the early 1990s, The Economist's 1972 founder of ER networks - started inviting youth to develop media tools aimed at empowering most purposeful goals to be communicated, directed and managed - be this through projects, individual organisation systems or networks.
For pro-youth economists, networks have interesting dynamic because their productivities play out extreme innovation opportunities both at interpersonal relationship levels of trust and at how transparent borders can be between partnering organisations -both those of civil society and these incorporated around the greatest human technologies ever invented. If the net generation is to make 2010s exciting by advancing productivity of human lifetimes by an order of magnitude then open tech boundaries will need to be the most transparent ever mapped
Both Einstein and Von Neumann (see biography by Norman Macrae) warned that the flip side of networks was that the above zero sum valuation modeling that young professionals of the first generation most needed investment in might be blocked by bold professions. (Note Einstein's experience in this integrated with mentoring Mahatam Gandhi while Von Neumann's life's hope was that open computing would sustain - and overcome- the work he had famously been forced to do on nuclear
The simplest tool involves communicating around questions and answers which can be updated on ever type of net that links people in to a heroic purpose. Research showed the core question to begin and end every chartering performance cycle is : who would uniquely miss what if this did not exist
It turns out that this question has a fundamental impact on business modeling. We will see this as we pursue real cases. Simply speaking is it possible to design in multi-wins around every greatest component of purpose? And if it isnt what exponential consequences will future's value multiplication hold.?
