Norman Macrae -The Economist pro-youth economist -bravo sir fazle abed & jack ma
conversational research for a new book on what whole truths can be understood from 170 years of conversations first diarised in the Economist- Keynes was the first to clarify that the compound impacts of what economists rule over can only design or destroy the futures that peoples want most -nowt in-between.
EUROPE & NOBEL BIGGEST ERROR - Believing Economics and Peace are Separate System Designs
Since my father at The Economist joined by Romano Prodi first campaigned for bottom-up Entrepreneurial Revolution in 1976, the design of globalisation and hyperconnectivity has made ever more top-down mistakes such as wall street and Euro economics in West, and aid whose transparent value chain mapping around the bottom-up has not yet begun to be truly valued by the species of political economists monopolising the nightly news.

Interestingly there was a gap of nearly 130 years between The Economist's first use of bottom-up - 1849 discussion DEEP CULTIVATION SUBSOILING the economics of a case that we would today call crop science (food security) , and 1977 Bottom-up is best
when debates of my father's end of 1976 survey of Entrepreneurial Revolution concluded that preparation for the net generation's 21st century would require transformation to bottom-up systems designs. What Schumacher had sensed as sustainability's urgent search for a global village networking map of economics.
CAN NEWTOWNIAN MINDSETS OF ECONOMICS THAT POLITICIANS ARE TRAPPED IN 2012 BE TRANSFORMED TO EINSTEIN"S DEEPER VIEWS TO INVEST IN YOUTH'S NET GENERATION PRODUCTIVITY?
110 more references to understanding bottom-up have since been made as economists try to come to grips with what maths of systems in all sciences knows: integrating complete views of future imapcts depends on sensing the most micro level of details.
Well The Economist was founded (1843) by a statistician who like adam smith and frenchman JB Say (who coined word "entrepreneur") wanted freedom and productivity to be multiplied through all of our children's children, not the "less than 1%" that ruled empire. James Wilson chatted up Queen Victoria who sent him off to India (then Calcutta) to liberate raj economics where he died before his time of diarrhea. It can be valuable -not just to royal families - to make a list of what else a place needs to deliver the ecosystem James aimed to map
Perhaps surprisingly one issue adam smith was passionate about: never let one section of society certify which youth are most educated. Arguably usa universities have become as scary a bubble in that regard as wall street banks especially when it comes to making MBA and macroeconomics the world's most expensive (job-destroying form of) education
But for the net generation there is also the biggest forbidden question of our times: what types of media are liberating individuals to be more productive and what are controling them through fear or other mean?. That's why as a British citizen I still hope that all the sections of society who were in Murdoch's pocket (in spite of recent article on Murdoch's rising stock) come out of the pocket simultaneously, and demand a bbc to be governed by the future of youth not by any of the usual old suspects whom keynes General Theory identified in its concluding pages. (The BBC is potentially the perfect medium for pro-youth economics if all Murdoch partners-in-hacking had not been beating up on the openness of public media as part of a deal murdoch did with china to maintain his satellite broadcasting there)
