Economics, according to Keynes, designs what futures are possible.
That responsibility becomes critical for the human race at times of great change -such as the revolution in communications we are the first generation are mediating.
Who's Economics will mediate Post-Industrial Revolution? Can we optimistically learn from whose mediated the industrial revolution? 43 years of researching these questions starts here
The policy of Scot James Wilson who founded The Economist in 1843 was to severely test the biggest decision-makers of the Industrial Revolution ahead of time by mediating 2 valuable aims : end hunger, ending capital abuse of youth. James's success or failure can be assessed from quite an innocent centenary autobiography of The Economist published in 1943-chapter contents include ; The Economist as source of : history, politics, foreign affairs, trade cycles - and practices of money market and stock market.
More recently the first MOOC out of the George Soros ineteconomics. movement for rethinking economics from the ground up claimed to be a contemporary update on James' son-in-law's work on Lombard Street and what English Constitution could transform Victoria from Empiring over slavery to cheering on commonwealth.

OPEN EDUCATION - THE GREATEST VALUE MULTIPLIER OF NET GENERATION After seeing students test early digital learning networks in 1972, father spent 10 years debating curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution through hundreds of leaders in The Economist. By 1984 he was able to publish a handbook Report to 2025 on how net generation could be most productive and sustainable age out of every global village if biggest decision-makers didn't use politics to block this
Moreover , freedom and happiness would depend on every educator of every child needing to know of Keynes conclusion to his General Theory. More than anyone else elderly economists design what futures are going to be possible out of each place. So who are they being sponsored by in coming up with their grand theories - 99% of the people or 1% of the people. Being an internationalist scot, I read Adam Smith alumni as trying to explore how economics improve next generations lot out of every community. My fathers 40 years of archives shows that after world war a branch of macroeconomics spun around the exact opposite purpose became very powerful. How do you all know in any particular training video which type of economist we are being conditioned by? I hope this question will be resolved in time to celebrate The Economist's 175th anniversary in 2018.
