2018 welcome to 175 birthday of The Economist founded by James Wilson 1843 - we hope you will enjoy sampling valuetrue media and mapping - up to 1990 The Economist regularly surveyed peoples nations however scary their history to celebrate possible future trading win-wins of people and sustainability worldwide - we hope to see this joyful purpose of media return to BRI.school as every young person joins in asking whether their continents coastal belts and over land Roads/Grids are designed to sustain happy trades and livelihoods or the exact opposite - Little Sister Sustainability or Big Brother climate and human collapse?

update 2020...Shall we design markets for 10 billion, 3 bn or zero people?..
As people concerned by community and global media, this is our fast moving understanding of what partners in UN's great debate on sustainability goals (17 goals is a lot for one screen -more at EconomistRefugees.com) is about? we (eg 6 generations of diaspora scots mediating community health across 4 hemispheres) love to hear what you think the purpose of sustainability goals education is. rsvp firstname.lastname@example.org
Depending what languages and faiths you use, different origins to this debate can be found. The one my scottish diaspora family knows best started 175 years ago in 1843 around James Wilson. His first concern was whether it was possible to design markets so that 2 islands - britain and ireland- grew in peace. He founded The Economist in 1843 to host what became a 17 year debate during his life time. The results were mixed ..continued here

|Help millennials end inconveniences of 20th C politicians & tv?
his greatest debates on youth futures start in 1972 when he saw students experimenting with digital networks:
-what are best ways of learning about such ideas as:
1972: Over the next 2 generations two thirds of humanity should be raised from intolerable indigence to something better than that which a third of us already enjoy. The remaining aim of the political economist should be to support whatever system she thinks could cause this to happen more quickly or more smoothly
3) 1948 diaries reveal the right old muddle around which the NHS started- with hindsight could not most economists map a design that compounded in a 2 times more economical way?
2) the coming mobilisation of information technology could surely double efficiency by sharing life-saving information and connecting remote experts with local emergency interventions
1) there should be courageously mediated choices (however politically incorrect) on what a public system should not cover - if for example father's statistic that over half of national health costs are connected to keeping of people alive for an extra year, then such national mis-spending is at odds with every parent who strives to see their children have a better livelihood opportunity in the future than the past (ultimately the only way a place can wholly develop)
|Norman Macrae last journalist mentored by Keynes, whose General Theory concluded 1) "increasingly economics rules the world" and 2) greatest risk to youth's productivity is elderly macroeconomists. Norman's 40 years of journalism at The Economist aimed to help net generation prevent ruin by economists by collaborating entrepreneurially in 10 times more productivity out of every community. On seeing 50 youth on a digital net in 1972, Norman coined term Entrepreneurial Revolution -2012 being 40th year of debates of www.erworld.tv|
Share optimistic determination of investing in next generation interacted by friends of The Economist’s Unacknowledged Giant with the founding fathers of digital media’s ecology!
ER The French word Entrepreneur "between take" originates in cutting off heads of royalty *the one per cent of late 1700s" for monopolising peoples' productive assets- let's agree more joyful ways of transferring assets for youth to be productive, how do we deal with over-government crisis identified in The Economist since 1978...?

The Economist. Saturday, 22 January 1972. 2011-2012: 40th year: dialogue started with networks of The Economist in 1972: how to prevent macroeconomists collapsing global financial economy in 2012.
Norman Macrae nearly 4000 leaders @ The Economist. By tradition only surveys were signed. 1962, Norman's 14th year of 40 at The Economist saw his first survey "Consider Japan" signed. Next year: he led a team to USSR: survey forecast communism would die within a quarter of a century. Decade later 1972 survey" gave western economists a maximum of 40 years to prevent meltdown of global financial system; whence his joyful surveys on Entrepreneurial Revolutionmapped where leaders were redesigning the net generation's most productive futures - forecasting in 1975 the asian pacific worldwide century and journalising the first book of the internet's economic and social business media significance in 1984.

4 questions of Yes We Can co-create yunus fund as largest investment fund in youth?
hello there is so much to change in the next 11 quarters - by end 2013 we will know how free bangladesh's future is for this decade as well as whether we have helped make "Social Business models Time is Now" for net generation's most exciting goals for 2020
- so I have listed some example contexts that some of you have already done huge amounts of work on- hopefully if you recognise how dr yunus has inspired one of your projects –7 changeworld leadership clusters - you will help explain it better than me to some of us and if you dont see your most urgent actions being represented in the list of prototype funding revolutions you will add one by inspiring us with an approximate way through the 4 questions
q1 with which world leaders -eg sarah butler-sloss (lord sainbury's eldest daughter and a change world leader in micro-energy),
&1.1 emperor of japan and prince charles
& 1.2 skoll, and google africa ; carlos slim? tom hunter?
& 1.3 sarkozi, and prodi? And robinson?
& 1.4 UK Yunus Fund team's triple play up to olympics. & Euro-royals, & current/former national leaders (eg Romano Prodi, Mary Robinson)
& 1.5 jack ma
& 1.6 rich family shareholders of The Economist (eg sainsbury's cadburys rothschilds)
q2 how to fund youth; q3 where/when over next 11 quarters (end 2013 being critical date for sustaining bangladesh as open net generation leader of millennium goals)
2.1 Green social business stockmarket -Japan NOW!
2.2 Giving 2.1, gates has a cluster of billionaires giving half future worrth to macroeconomics- who will help form billionaires giving to microeconomics & youths greatest goals?
2.3 sarkozi has proposed including bangladesh 201os most exciting nations as G21 as G20 is expanded to G25 before end 2013; moreover good news last year france may have overtaken usa in creating most startups ever (650,000+) by a western nation (this was announced french embassy in dc with approval of 24 MIT entrepreneurial hubs and obama's stratups race- a programme begun early 2011)
2.4 reforming youth investment across europe :
(dormant accounts of big society bank, turn unused government properties into youth city-centres and local dragons dens and other reality tv programs (mostly originated by BBC tv producers in UK but made famous elsewhere), make london olympics turning point in celebrating youth entrepreneurship and 2020's greatest networking goals - 5 quarters left to change how the 23 lead global brand sponsors of olympics understand how to honor what queen elizabeth represents if you were to do a mastermind quiz on microeconomics of youth and commonwealth future history 1843-2012
2.5 jack ma is to china youth job creation and e-revolution what yunus is to bangladesh?
2.6 back in 1843 lot more was known about sustainability of economics and good news social action media than is understood today- for example The Economist was founded around 1 main entrepreneurial ideology and 2 goals :
ideology - "experience demonstrates that no joint stock company can do as well as an individual on any purpose that is within reach of individual" p47 of biography of The Economist's first 100 years- the first 2 social action goals of The Economist end hunger caused by Corn Laws; end capital punishment as convenient way old people got rid of youth born into big city poverty
q4 developing what collaboration media
danone communities portal in every mother tongue
sing for hope in every future city
journal of social business to end macroeconomics' irresponsibilities
naila's good news portals to connect first 300 co-journalists of social busienss and actioning exciting youth goals of 2020
collection of 10 Entrepreneurial Bangladesh leaflets on 10 social action dialogues (which norman macrae foundation wants to help search for co-sponsors) most urgent to bangladesh and millennium goals - eg mostofa's leaflet 1 reminds world of shakti's race to solar, leaflet 2 can remind world of greenchildren and caledonian nursing college race to end nurseless villages ,,

recommendation - celebrate research of green world leadership 3000
we have small things we can do like entrepreneurial bangladesh's first leaflet being on green and the possibility to make a green issue of journal of social business an absolute priority
can we recheck the 3000 leaders list yunus centre prepared for journal of social business launch for who are the most trusted green contacts - for example was neville williams on the list? was whomever is in middle of obama's 5 million green jobs program? was john mackey? ns whomever is greenest person at mit after several years of the yunus prize there?
we have big things we can do: given dad's 2 most extraordinary entrepreneurial nations both need open green most - bangladesh so it doesnt sink and japan to clean up food chain and seas
which country's top people including japan both regally and poliitically can dr yunus write to suggesting they might like to join a worldwide effort in 2 first regards:
1 nominate a university within their nation that is prepared to work on open sourcing all technologies of photosynthesis-
2 form the first social business stockmarket of green as part of the yunus fund co-branding
we already have strong friends of yunus in this area with sarah's network, paul and the attenborogh's bbc connections, neville willliams and so forth
one of my father's best friends demonstrated cambridge university gained more by open sourcing the genome than all those who raced to close source it; morever it was von neumann himself who declared that in the connected age of the net generation we should race to end patents of more than 3 months duration since any core group in a highly networked world with a 3 months lead has an extraordinary advantage as long as its still using its epicentre of knowledge primarily for progress of all of humanity
veolia and danone are already strong on water research and presumably can help identify broader networks of open green
to the extent that aid agencis jica, dfid and usaid need a joint rebriefing on various things including how to include youth in public private partnerships and what to do if they wish to continue to reinvest in the sort of bangladesh develop paradigm the first 40 years of bangladesh as a nation is famous for assembling, then the world open panel of green experts is something these 3 aid agtencies could be optimisticaly asked to join in with - if necessary with some nudges from royal families in 2 cases and a president (son of microcredit) in the other case
I imagine that jack ma has some under the radar green contacts
having good news to celebrate on green the week before the olympics will naturally increas prince charles leadership of this fringe social busienss festival
sure there are many more opportunity ideas to multiply-

End of chapter 16:
Sunlight is the fuel which sustains life on earth. The process by which plants extract energy from sunlight, using that energy to build up complex compounds from simper ones and thereby storing the energy which animals, including humans, use to grow and move and see and think is the life-process itself. We (human beings) have always exploited that life-process, but in the past we have only been able to do so by using living plants as our agents. We learned to cultivate them, develop them by selective breeding, and since the 1980s to meddle with their genes, but we have not yet learned to substitute something of our own making for the living plant. We have not found or made a more efficient substitute for chlorophyll itself outside the naturally-occurring factory which is the living cell.
Until we design our own systems which can deploy the energy of sunlight as efficiently as humble algae does, we humans have no real biotechnology of our own. We have many kinds of solar cells which can extract energy from the sunlight and store is as electricity or heat, but such devices are very crude indeed beside the technical sophistication and versatility of living plants.
We are making a determined effort to capture and use a greater fraction of the solar energy which falls upon the face of the earth every day. We are trying to make plants flourish in paces where at present they can only eke out the most precarious of existence. The ideal situation, however, would be one in which we did not need to work so hard to adapt existing plants to more hostile conditions. If we had our own artificial systems of photosynthesis we might exploit the desert sun ourselves, without using other organisms as intermediaries. Our ultimate ambition must be to make artificial photosynthetic systems more efficient than those which have evolved alongside side us throughout the history of life on earth. Then and only then will we be able to claim that we are technologically self-sufficient. In 2024, this looks as if it might be one of our children's tasks.

and I have messed around with computerised learning since 1973 in something oddly called the UK's national dev program in computer assisted learning which had an internet with about 500 students using at same time from 4 univeristies and mainly me as its content programmer; though by 1983 i was in paris using the first database software (express) which MIT created to model global markets
The Entrepreneurial Revolution trilogy begun in The Economist of 25 December 1976 was completed with a 1984 book about the future. It was one of the strangest things I had ever read.
It had boundless optimism --
Over the last decade, I have written many articles in The Economist and delivered lectures in nearly 30 countries across the world saying the future should be much more rosy. This book explores the lovely future people could have if only all democrats made the right decisions.
combined with a weird technological vision --
Eventually books, files, television programmes, computer information and telecommunications will merge. We'll have this portable object which is a television screen with first a typewriter, later a voice activator attached. Afterwards it will be minaturised so that your personal access instrument can be carried in your buttonhole, but there will be these cheap terminals around everywhere, more widely than telephones of 1984. The terminals will be used to access databases anywhere in the globe, and will become the brainworker's mobile place of work. Brainworkers, which will increasingly mean all workers, will be able to live in Tahiti if they want to and telecommute daily to the New York or Tokyo or Hamburg office through which they work. In the satellite age costs of transmission will not depend mainly on distance. And knowledge once digitalised can be replicated for use anywhere almost instantly.
and a startlingly fresh economic perspective --
In the 1890s around half of the workforce in countries like the United States were in three occupations: agriculture, domestic service and jobs to do with horse transport. By the 1970s these three were down to 4 per cent of the workforce. If this had been foretold in the 1890s, there would have been a wail. It would have been said that half the population was fit only to be farmworkers, parlourmaids and sweepers-up of horse manure. Where would this half find jobs? The answer was by the 1970s the majority of them were much more fully employed ( because more married women joined the workforce) doing jobs that would have sounded double-Dutch in the 1890s: extracting oil instead of fish out of the North Sea; working as computer programmers, or as television engineers, or as package-holiday tour operators chartering jet aircraft.

Norman Macrae’s Future Yearbook 2012
Inviting you and yours to participate in the 20 most exciting projects ever networked
Dedicated to Youth and Dr Muhammad Yunus
Norman Macrae's curiosity got him mixed up with more extraordinary future movements than any journalist of the 20th Century. In 1955 he was the only journalist at the birth of the European Union. In 1962, he was the first economist to forecast the return of Japan as a world class innovative force.
Norman’s most famous future history was The Entrepreneurial Revolution Trilogy
Part 1 published by The Economist Xmas day 1976. and translated for Southern Europe by Romano Prodi , foresaw the need for the world to change stockmarkets if people were to prevent a meltdown of the global financial system in 2010s. Joyfully, part 2 "We're All Intrapreneurial Now" in 1982 mapped how productive lives in service economies (or children's schools) were no longer to be bossed about.
By 1984, Norman's team of authors were the first to journalise the extraordinary possibilities of the internet generation 1984-2024. Unlike consuming things, knowledge can multiply value in use and network’s death of distance can bring down degrees of separation on life critical information, and once knowhow is digitally coded the cost to replicate it worldwide comes down to nought.
Norman's 1996 leadership of an Oxford Union debate is reputed to have caused more than one politician to have a heart attack. Be warned before you click to it http://oxbridge.tv
When Norman died in 2010 his obituary in The Economist dubbed him the Unacknowledged Giant and rued the fact that the work needed to prove Norman’s contention that the 2010s would become the most exciting decade was still to be done.
But Norman had been overjoyed early in 2008 to meet the greatest entrepreneuriual revolutionary of his lifetime. He started plotting what he confidently believed would be the 20 most exciting projects ever networked and demanded they start up by 2012 – the 170th year of The Economist which had itself started up with goals of ending hunger and openly investing in youth’s futures all over the world .
This book is dedicated to Youth and their most joyful economic guide Muhammad Yunus. Let us see how many of Norman’s top 20 networking projects light up the world before The Economist is 171 years old.
our story so far: halima who organises MIT entrepreneur galas at embassy of france in dc (in an attempt to get french startups and obama startup leaders to mix) and I have a short luncheon on monday discussing what impossible becomes possible transformation embassy of france would like to celebrate while yunus testifies to US congress fall11 (see last fall's invitations from congress attached)
To: "christopher macrae" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Thanks ! I was happy that we had the opportunity to host MIT gala.
I will come back to you on after having had a chance to read journals of social business.
Jean-François BOITTIN,Ministre conseiller pour les affaires économiques et financières
Service Économique Régional de Washington Ambassade de France aux États-Unis
since at monday June 6 meeting with M Boittin, we are talking to one of france's 3 most influentially connected economists I would like to ask him to help specify what we friends of youth and yunus in america and round-world (and embassy of france) do during yunus congress visit, and before and after
ever since congress last september voted to hear from yunus as youth's genius economist my family and friends have seen his congress visit -fall 2011 - as america's last best chance to change economics - something obama came to power on here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzEajBQ9gmQ and then never did enact, quite possibly because of the fatal error of feeling he owed the clintons healthcare reform before economics (job creation banking) reform
changes to economics that are needed for 2010s to be youths most productive decade all round the world are clear to anyone who has read and truly interacted round my dad's 1984 script at anytime in the last 27 years; only france in developed nation has rediscovered how to invite youth to sustain entrepreneurial revolution while also changing the names og the game such as E-G8 and microeconomic G25
look mathematically at any famous economists' usa discourse and they (their overarching system) are still talking about the politics of disinvesting in youth; my dads's 1962 book "sunshades in october" itself a sequel to "london capital market" warned that the then new breed of macroeconomists was rapidly becoming youth's greatest enemy, something that Keynes general theory had also forewarned as a possibility once powers that be realised that structure of economics systems - not democratic systems per se - ultimately condition everything else that human behaviour stochastically does -including the huge risks it compounds the less critical information top people free in time for all 7 billion of us to make sense of what to innovate as death of distance makes us boudaryless as value exchangers
; wall street 2008 is just one dismal example of 46 years of compounding the same fatal conceit of too-much top-down and behind closed doors need to know, instead of community rsiing and let knowhow openly multiply value in use
the opportunity of service economies - not yet understood by thing-age american strategists (worst of which reside at business schools like harvard) is to empower people not to boss them -norman 1982 http://www.normanmacrae.com/intrapreneur.html
the economic opportunity of knowledge networking age is to open source way above zero sum models (Norman biography of von neumann) - yunus tragedy is that there is no worldwide model for quality certifying an open idea
so maybe the partnering process we urgently need to blend before and after embassy dc yunus roundtable is less about thinking who should attend the roundtable with yunus and more about how to discover and write up a guide to the 20 most exciting new economics projects the world of youth can network in 2010s
example of Boittin connections
Meaning of DSK: Thanks to then Embassy of France to the U.S. Minister-Counselor for Economic Affairs, and now recently returned Embassy Minister of Finance, Jean-Francois Boittin, I met Dominique Strauss-Kahn for a one-on-one meeting in 1998. Boittin, working single-handedly to correct my over-familiarity with Asia by a productive junket to Paris, said "You must experience Strauss-Kahn; there is no one else like him in France, and perhaps the world."
As France's Finance Minister, when I met him, Strauss-Kahn had emerged in the French Socialist party as its leading, sometimes reluctant, sometimes bullish globalist. Europe was hard-charging into deepening its internal arrangements, and Strauss-Kahn had helped engineer technically and politically his nation's forfeiture of the French franc and the embrace of the Euro.
But Strauss-Kahn was never a manic neoliberal nor is he what financier George Soros derisively calls a "market fundamentalist." Strauss-Kahn, even when we discussed his views of the global economy in 1998, was a storm of contradictions that nonetheless made sense.
He could see deeper global economic dependencies growing and simultaneously increasing the speed and scale of financial transactions but in contrast to the U.S. ruling triumvirate of Robert Rubin, Lawrence Summers and Alan Greenspan, Strauss-Kahn believed in healthy and robust regulation and monitoring. Strauss-Kahn has always been concerned about the human and national victims of an amoral global economic order.
In 1998, Strauss-Kahn said that there was much to admire in what was happening in the U.S. with the boom in information technology and the inspirational aspects of what President Clinton was trying to sell as benign U.S.-led globalization, but Strauss-Kahn feared that America was blind to the downsides of economic deepening around the world and needed to be careful of turning globalization into a religion.
In so many ways, Dominique Strauss-Kahn's thoughts were highly prescient about the instabilities being cooked into an evolving global economic system in which manic deregulation and the triumph of markets were going to bring serious challenges.
Strauss-Kahn has long been the living embodiment of an ideological hybrid between Milton Friedman and Joseph Stiglitz, two antagonists profiled in journalist Michael Hirsh's Capital Offense: How Washington's Wise Men Turned America's Future Over to Wall Street. And this is what the highly regulated world of French socialist-capitalism needed, and also what the world needed and got when Strauss-Kahn became Executive Director of the International Monetary Fund.
Given the global financial crisis of 2009 and the many foreshocks of that crisis that have been brewing around the world in earlier years, the IMF -- if to survive -- needed someone who would be able to convince the new growing major economies like Brazil, China, Turkey, South Africa, Saudi Arabia and India that the IMF could partner with their aspirations and regional financial needs rather than be a rival to them. Dominique Strauss-Kahn, during his tenure at the IMF, has largely achieved this and helped steer the institution and the world through the rough currents of large scale financial deleveraging.
At the inaugural meeting of the Institute for New Economic Thinking, co-founded by George Soros, held at King's College in Cambridge, England where John Maynard Keynes used to reign, Strauss-Kahn spoke as one of the keynote speakers. As his remarks began, anti-IMF protesters had broken into the hall and hung a banner over the stage in front of 200 or so surprised economic thinkers and writers. I was in the second row and snapped the picture at the side, which I quickly fed to Arianna Huffington who in turn had it up as the lead on Huffington Post in about three minutes.
What followed was magnificent. Strauss-Kahn showed no fear at all of these protesters whom he engaged in discussion. He asked them to make clear their concerns -- to use his stage to articulate their core fears and demands and make this time that they had taken count. Unfortunately, the folks hanging the banner were not those most intellectually in tune with the protest and they ran off after he asked them to speak. I communicated with the protest leaders later and have no doubt that they would have done well in responding to Strauss-Kahn, but the key then is that he actually did think they should be heard and that the elite who had assembled in Keynes' former halls should not forget the voices of those worried about the impact of global economic policy making. It was a powerful moment, deftly managed by Strauss-Kahn.
Strauss-Kahn's latest IMF patient has been Greece, helping it to work through its debt nightmares. Virtually everyone gives the IMF Director high marks for his ability to keep in mind human faces when sorting through and dealing with the tough disciplines wrought by globalization.
I know nothing of Strauss-Kahn's rumored aggressiveness towards women and think that President Nicolas Sarkozy is right that he should be presumed innocent until the charges against him for sexual battery are sorted out. Nouriel Roubini has publicly speculated that it can't be discounted that this may be some sort of a set up. I won't speculate one way or another as I think at the time of this writing, none of us know the truth of what did or didn't happen.
What is clear is that Strauss-Kahn, who is one of the few major economic gladiators in the world to defend the rights and privileges of people, is human himself. We sometimes forget that.

attached is the 1992 write up from dad's presentation at a major conference. It is on why the net generation would need to transform the processes of governments
Norman’s rehearsals of how youth’s futures need to innovate cheerfully above history’s compound conflicts were not much loved by UK Upper Classes with the odd exception (eg Prince Charles quipped using Norman Macrae's scriptwriting at his first tour of Japan starting Wales partnership with Sony and other goodwill impacts), but were warmly supported by 2 generations of the Imperial Family in Japan and the odd US president and John Von Neuman's family. In John Von Neumann's biography commissioned by Sloan Foundation, Norman Macrae identified Johnny's paradigm shift for designers of net generation economics; : Johnny grabbed other people's ideas, then by his clarity leapt five blocks ahead of them. and helped put them into practical effect. We think this is the social action that smart people exist to mediate - especially when you joyfully adopt Johnny's belief that computers will allow research teams to tackle one hundred times as many projects 100 times more quickly. Before Johnny, the happiest examination of the purpose of media was the 1943 biography of the centenary of The Economist. from which all of Norman's diaries stem join in next at Soros-INETe partner of coursera: money curriculum 1 sept 2013, or
