Norman Macrae -The Economist pro-youth economist -bravo sir fazle abed & jack ma
1972: Norman Macrae starts up Entrepreneurial Revolution debates in The Economist. Will we the peoples be in time to change 20th C largest system designs and make 2010s worldwide youth's most productive time? or will we go global in a way that ends sustainability of ever more villages/communities? Drayton was inspired by this genre to coin social entrepreneur in 1978 ,,continue the futures debate here
During the decade 1872-1982 Norman did not expect the west to lead the way in Entrepreneurial Revolution in spite of the whole genre starting up when he first saw hundreds of youh sharing knowhow around an early digital network in North of England in 1972

Norman's debates in USA were linked through Herman Kahn at Hudson Institute and the technologist Diebold and Giffird Pinchot;s Intrapereneurship. Norman had seen the first quarter of a century of tv age destroy public service and increasingly make tv advertising the least economics and most dsmal media ever spun- so he didn't expect USA to be good at initial open structores of internet
Noramns Xmas day 1976 survey of Entrepereneurial Revolution was soon debated by a young Romano Prodi out of Italy and across Europe. Norman and Romano clarified his firs 5 year reporting of the EU back in the 1950s- good fior peace -disastrous for future generations unless politicians get outv of way..
Published in 1984, Norman and I maped the net gereation futures if everything went well in changing the world's biggest systems - the opposite scenario to that of Einstein and Orwell. We created 6 tests which any of the 4 hempispheres could collaborative empower youth to linkin worldwide as milions times more collaboration technology was accessible than when man raced to moon
If we passed these test in time 3 billion new jobs would make 2010s worldie youth's most productive, collaborative and sustainable time http://wholeplanet.tv
so what we now need to do as moocs are freeing what 12 minute training modules millions of youth interact aroujd is design curriculums that pass this test; that's nt the same as requiring youth to pass old curriculums exams- is it?
