Links to Entrepreneurial Revolution Networks since 1976

Today over 100 types of entrepreneurial worldwide networks exist.  Including

  • since 1978 Social Entrepreneurs as mapped by alumni of Ashoka's Bill Drayton
  •  since around 1980 Intrapreneurs (those who take greatest economic advantage of services dynamised by human energies being different from lifeless thing economies) as mapped by alumni of J Gifford Pinchot
  •  since birth of Bangladesh in 1971 grassroots networks who have recently chosen the identity social business entrepreneurs having previously also been known as microebtrepreneurs
  • in 1994 Norman helped edit the EIU book on how entrepreneurs can charter the most purposeful organisations ever invested in over generations - this led to mapping 10-win and 100-win business models necessary if trillion dolar global markets are to value their greatest sustainability purpose as a rising exponential over time; it turns out that yunus social business entrepreneur partnerships use the simpelst subset of Macraes' exponentially rising valuation models; one reason why macrae family is honored to be lead investor in journal of social business and pro-youth economics

Would 100 Entrepreneurial Networks exist if Norman had not published the Entrepreneurial Revolution Challenge in The Economist in 1976?  (and colaborated with many confederate translaors including a young Romano Prodi in Italy)


The unacknowledged giant
The Unacknowledged Giant's ER Nets
. Disaster Movie


Who knows but what is clear is two main things

  •  Norman chose to "brand" entrepreneur to be all the best things of microeconomics and none of the worst things of macroeconomics. He gleefully chuckled: the origin of the French between-take refers to cutting off heads of those who monopolise all the peoples productive assets. So whatever other frameworks macroeconomics are sponsored to counterfeit from the original system mapping constructs of Scots like Adam Smith and James Wilson, they will only make a fool of themselves if they try to fake entrepreneurship

Nobody in the second half of the 20th C was clearer than Noramn on how macroeconomists were becoming the main enemy of the future of youth and of the sustainability of communities. Norman diarised this with both good humor and increasing urgency in over 2000 leaders that he contributed to The Economist as it went from being 3rd ranked UK weekly newpaper to the world's favourite viewspaper. You can read most of his annual surveys at 


Norman died in 2010 but not before being clear that Dr Yunus loved economics of youth with much more practical strengths than Norman had been able to type. Accidentally I (chris macrae) mapped one of norman's biggest stories - how network entrepreneurs emerged. My first job after an MA in Statistics at Cambridge in 1973 was at the UK National Development Project for Computer Asssited Learning where Norman tried out early networks we linked in with 500 students at a time. So while I dont claim to have the economics or geopolitical roots of my father, I did joyfully share in his greatest explorations- and in his belief that the 2010s can yet be youth's most exciting decade provide we can stop investing in macroeconomics and its zero-sum games,  and use new business models that value multiply way above zero-sum while focusing on achieving the most heroic goals youth vote for spending the decade on.





Beliefs of Entrepreneurial Revolutionaries as codified in Norman Macrae’s 1976 Survey in The Economist


Beliefs are grouped into 2 categories: general economics, specific crises that 3rd quarter of 20th Century spun


General Economics beliefs of ER

1 There are 2 opposite types of economics- those designed to develop future productivities of peoples and places, and those that disinvest in our children’s children – Source Reference Keynes General System Theory

2 By definition entrepreneurs are concerned with economics and innovations that advance the productive lot of our children;s children – Source Reference Coining  of the word entrepreneur by French goals of liberte, egalite, fraternite : human right  access to assets of productivity around 1800

3 Joy of Entrepreneurial spirit flourishes when taught and mediated as non-political and cross-cultural. Essentially, investing in children’s children has been the value that has so far made the human race nature’s smartest evolutionary species – Source front cover of The Economist Xmas Issue 1976: Left is Right is Centre.


Crisis Opportunities Arising from Economics 3rd Quarter of 20th Century

A During this quarter century the west's leading nations became accidentally dominated by economists focused on disinvesting in youth’s futures -eg look at how both EU and USA spun far away from the charters of happiness and freedom they were born round

B Every major type of organisational system now (1976) has embedded into it threats to the future sustainability of communities/humanity as well as positive possibilities

C The exciting challenge of the 4th quarter of the 20th C will be a New Capitalism – redesigning partnerships between organisational typologies to value multiply their entrepreneurial positives – Reference: New Capitalism was slogan subtitle of The Economist survey

D Its urgent that we change economics ahead of the greatest change generation – the coming internet generation. Hayek's fatal conceit of macroeconomists is to make noise about loving innovation but not to innovate their own logics to value each generation's unique opportunity. Overall economists  since 1976 has failed to accpet hippocratic responsibility to redesign sustainability of its reasoning.  It is compounding conflicts exactly where youth need to celebrate heroes of borderless death of distance, and financially it is in denial of how all its assumptions are chnaged by bankabillion's 10 times lower cost of mobile transactions 


Many subspecies of entrepreneurial revolution network have emerged around these principles. We are always interested in registering specific goal-oriented subnetworks but here are nine worth young entrepreneurial people –and those wishing to invest in youth’s heroic goals - having a first look at. The three in the right hand columns involve selective changes to economic design that Norman inputted into until 2010

Social Action Entrepreneur – The Economist 1843

Intrapreneur service economy  empowers entrepreneurial productivity thru projects and franchises 1982

Journalists for Humanity Entrepreneurs – relaunched with Norman 1989

Social Business MicroCommunity Entrepreneur - Bangladesh 1976

Net Generation Entrepreneur – debated in 1984 book 2024 report

Valuetrue Entrepreneurs for network economics – calibrated around Unseen Wealth and intangibles crisis researchers 1999

Privatization Entrepreneur – Best practice Bangladesh since birth of nation

Global SB Partnering in Youth Entrepreneurs most heroic goals –paris-dhaka 2005

TrillionDollarAudit Entrepreneurs- response to too big to fail macroeconomists merged through 2000s

how do humans design futures?-in the 2020s decade of the sdgs – this question has never had moore urgency. to be or not t be/ – ref to lessons of deming or keynes, or glasgow university alumni smith and 200 years of hi-trust economics mapmaking later fazle aded - we now know how-a man made system is defined by one goal uniting generations- a system multiplies connected peoples work and demands either accelerating progress to its goal or collapsing - sir fazle abed died dec 2020 - so who are his modt active scholars networks empowering youth with his knohow n- soros with jim kim paul farmer leon botstein and with particular contexts- girls village development and with ba-ki moon global climate adaptability where cop26 november will be a great chance to renuite with 260 years of adam smith and james watts purposes there is no point in connecting with system mentors unless you want to end poverty-specifically we interpret sdg 1 as meaning mext girl or boy born has fair chance at free happy an productive life as we seek to make any community a child is born into a thriving space to grow up between discover of new worlds in 1500 and 1945 systems got worse and worse on the goal eg processes like slavery emerged- and ultimately the world was designed around a handful of big empires and often only the most powerful men in those empires. 4 amazing human-tech systems were invented to start massive use by 1960 borlaug agriculture and related solutions every poorest village (2/3people still had no access to electricity) could action learn person to person- deming engineering whose goal was zero defects by helping workers humanize machines- this could even allowed thousands of small suppliers to be best at one part in machines assembled from all those parts) – although americans invented these solution asia most needed them and joyfully became world class at them- up to 2 billion people were helped to end poverty through sharing this knowhow- unlike consuming up things actionable knowhow multiplies value in use when it links through every community that needs it the other two technologies space and media and satellite telecoms, and digital analytic power looked promising- by 1965 alumni of moore promised to multiply 100 fold efficiency of these core tech each decade to 2030- that would be a trillion tmes moore than was needed to land on the moon in 1960s. you might think this tech could improve race to end poverty- and initially it did but by 1990 it was designed around the long term goal of making 10 men richer than 40% poorest- these men also got involved in complex vested interests so that the vast majority of politicians in brussels and dc backed the big get bigger - often they used fake media to hide what they were doing to climate and other stuff that a world trebling in population size d\from 1945 to 2030 also needed to map. so the good and bad news is we the people need to reapply all techs where they are only serving rich men and politicians od every party who have taken us to the brink of ending our species- these are the most exciting times to be alive - we the 3 generations children parents grandparents have until 2030 to design new system orbits gravitated around goal 1 and navigating the un's other 17 goals do you want to help/ 8 cities we spend most time helping students exchange sustainability solutions 2018-2019 BR0 Beijing Hangzhou: BR6 Geneva, Luxembourg, BR2 Dhaka, Delhi, BR1 Tokyo, Seoul
