The first 13 years of The curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution published in The Economist between 1972-1985 raised the future history questions needed for the 2010s to design worldwide youth's exponentially most sustainable inter-generational relay. The vicious systems alternative being the opposite compound consequence of a Big Brothered Planet in which less than a billion people could ever thrive. Why? Because unlike man's biggest egos nature's evolutionary rules are primarily micro-up and collaborative. Einstein's greatest discovery was to rebuke man-made science- whenever it claims there is no more space to innovate, please value modeling dynmaic compound interactions at a more micro level. 


Where did this come from? I know of my father's 3 main adult learning curves. Between 1960 and 1975 he aimed to facilitate west meets east (reference trilogy of consider japan started in 1962, asian pacific www century 1975). He knew that if there needs to be a world reserve currency then the human race needs to collaboratively celebrate the location where system investments are being designed round the most rising livelihoods. The Asia Pacific region would have nearly 2 billion  rising livelihoods compared to the dollars home region of about 10 time less. (The 2013 book Leaderless Economy reprises all of the common sense needed to mediate integrating exponential opportunities and threats- in such a way as to  sustain a global village world valuing open society's youth)


Between 1948 and 1960 (dad's first 12 years at The Economist)  he had been the first journalist to cover how Europe had come up with the most wonderful social-economic visions such as the EU and National health service (see 1984 retrospective on how to design 10 times less costly health services before they trapped youth in old people's debt), Short-term bi-polar politics fanned by tv age is the worst possible way of systemically designing social futures. As leaders like Churchill and Eisenhower knew, the impact of such inconvenient truth is to compound 10 times more cost of the future of youth than could be sustainable by next generations."Eisenhower - every gun that is made, every warship that is launched, every rocket that is fired signifies in a final sense the theft from those who hunger and are not fed who are cold and not clothed".


Back in 1984 two wondrous economic crises of opportunity and risk were valued by Norman's investigative mindset. Number 1:  Orwell, Einstein, Von Neumann, Gandhi and all those 1930s greats had made a timelining mistake in scripting the Big Brother scenario of hyper connected technology one generation too early. Number 2: That the USSR was about to implode, and peace's biggest dividends now needed to be mapped by a worldwide collaboration of hemisphere leaders. That was how this opening scenario of his future history of the net generation became integral to any hi-trust debate of entrepreneurial revolution. Youth futures no longer needed American Congress to budget over one sixth of all taxes and over one half of all discretionary decision-making on military. 


(2013 Reprise CNN with Dr Yunus reprise this in the debate of will the biggest western decision makers please move on from the science fiction of moon race goals to social fiction of ending poverty out of every comunity on earth. Youth are invited to test elders overs the next 2 years on this purpose and host a worldwide debriefing with Nobel peace lauraetes out of Atalanta Nov 2015) 


.As norman was to share with Dr Muhammad Yunus in 2008, for those British teenagers to survive world war2 going up to Cambridge in 1954 was the perfect time to question economics. There was the chief questioner Keynes. The students he mentored between 1945-1948 had adult experiences of war. All 4 monolpolies that education chains youth today to -whao teaches, what subjects, who who examines, who ceritifies -were suspended.. This was a time of raising questions about the biggest system mistakes not of being told your future would be certoified according to how many top-down errprs you repeated in the fashion of a Monty Python parrot. Dr Yunus chickled at that as the BBC's greatest cross-cultural investigator Michael Palin and newest nature correspondents (eg Paul Rose) has just been touring his vilage banking , open technolgy webbing and green energy motghers investment networks in youth. This is how norman's last publication came to be with Muhamad Yu nus at the end of 2008, and was celebrated in the first rememberance party to Norman macra out of The Economist Boardroom Fall 2010.

Entering his late teens father chose to learn economics from an Indian correposndene course while navigating airplanes in world war 2 over modernday bangladesh and Myanmar. There was a lot of down time for questioning between the hectic action missions. Surviving the war father was mentored by Keynes whose general theory is summarised as the futires of youth will be exp[oentially designed or destroeyed by economists and ideolgists who increasingly monoplise hpw the world is ruled. At the same time father had access to the 1943 centenray autobiography of The Economist - the bible on how a scot with the goal of ending hunger became a member of parliament to get rid of vested interest MPS, started up The Economist for that purspoe, befirended Queen Victoria who decided she would rather rule over commonwealth than slave-making empire. Ironically the cost to Britain of the first world war turned its world-impacting position from commonwealth to common-debt, and during the first half of the 20th century it was a good thing that the dollar evolved as the world's reserve currency. Norman helped The Economist turn from 3rd rank weekly UK fournal to first transatlantivc viewspaper. Embedded in all his futuure histories was the need for western midesets to give up the economic batern to the eastern hemishperes but in such a way that integrated southen hemisphers reconciling the problems they had inherited from the days that colnisers extracted their resources. Fortunately the post-indsutial age of service and knowhow networking economies actually multiplies valiue as knoiwhow is used unlike the scarcities caused by consuming up things. So those alive between 1975-2025 would likely determine forexpoentailly  better or for worse all future purspoes of our human race. As al peoples became more worldwide connected than separated boundary problems compounded by differeing expectaions and incolmes of rich and poor nations would compound man's biggest risk. The last thing the world needed was economists and idelogues separated by Nobel prizes of epace and economics as one of the first nobel economic recipients van hayek saoid in hus acceeptance speech

MY Economics for raising every youth's livelihod

Norman's personal learning curves as a young adult between 1943 and 1948 need to become all youth's entrepreneurial learning curves between 2013 and 2018. Two ways to move this forward are open education redesigning economics curricula for every age from kindergarten up and The Economist getting back to its wholeplanet purpose of end hunger and end capital abuse of youth by its 175th birthday in 2018

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
