pro-youth methods norman macrae used - and would have loved

since dad's death in 2010, we founded Norman macrae Family Foundation to co-host the sort of pro-youth futures he would have enjoyed most- before and after an actual event we continue online discussions- here's a sample- if your place needs to co-host some of this dialogue pelase email chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk or phone my washington dc hotline 1 301 881 1655

What we need - my pitch to sir fazle and brac university - is founder of a university to be the coursera partner that is on youth's side not perpetuating professors silos and their institutions ivory tower (and systems that are too big to exist) costs. For example, the first million student course on youth entrepreneurship could be  a few slides defining the term openly and bottom-up but mainly updating through a competition for current student year's most replicable social solutions.
This was proposed by The Economist and in my dads 1984 book on net generation where the bbc's world service also joined in by faciliating a dragons den competition of who came up with the most investible millennium goal solutions so that collaborative worldwide youth co-produce these through any community needing particular life-saving service franchises. Father had predicted 2000s as decade mankind would wake up to discrepancy in nations' incomes and expectations being man's greatest risk and if the 2010s did not become the decade we micro-entrepreneurially invested in worldwide youth being 10 times more productive, sustainable and heroic then globalisation would at best collapse or at worst spin towards orwell's end game. Actually back in 1930s the correspondence friends albert einstein and mahatma gandhi were entrepreneurial whole truth bloggers/mapmakers for orwell's plot - one providing the maths and other seeing india (which then included what we now call pakistan and bangaldesh) as one of the last continent-wide test cases.
As only dad could get away with voicing: instead of learning from the beginning of the 20th century: George Bush replicated Kaiser Wilhelm's behaviours -father had been the future historian for Hackett's World War 3. Sadly how to prevent 21st c replaying world wars has not been digested by congresses on either side of the atlantic. Father's old friend Rupert Murdoch has played the most disgraceful role of any media baron in bullying the BBC and 25 years of UK politics just when we needed Aunty to come out on youth economics side.
what is insanely great about coursera is unlike other massive open online collaboration (MOOC) platforms is the basic element of content is 12 minute slide shows (ok with youtube  superimposed on bottom right hand corner of slides guiding you through them). I believe any replicable open source and inter-community solution needs a franchise description of maximum 12 minutes length to go viral round online youth
TADDY - if i can tell sir fazle that you support something like the above future intervention then we need his university and yours to rapidly partner each other and coursera- so that's why I would love to sponsor your trip to meet him at earliest possible mutual diary convenience- 2013 year is supposed to be The Economist's 170th year of mediating end of hunger. So if you and sir fazle could meet before july, I could try and ask lord sainsbury's daughter to reactivate shareholders of The Economist before AGM. She and prince charles already want to help MOOC million youth's most popular microenergy curriculum as way of using prize knowedge ofhttp://www.ashden.org/ and she and princess anne love free nusring colleges. 21st c nursing needs to be mobilised as the most trusted grassroots infomation workers. Probably the most entrepreneurial initiative the combo of obama and clinton planted is community owned broadband nursing in clinton's state (part of a 4 billion do;lar bailout investment where each state was alowed to choose one living app to broadband bottom-up

norman devoured numbers making more sense out of them than most- he knew how to model systems that were already compounding consequences, impact valuation/auditing as some call it today; almost all of his future histories were logical consequences mapping either where goodwill systems were exponentially accelerating, or conversely of crisis compasses people needed to change if they were not to cause mass destruction.


for more on norman's viewpoint- download the attachment metazero.ppt - ask questions to chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk - at the moment it is not self-standing - it is a network document of some content modules we want to insure that MOOCs that value youth most integrate, and to linkin leaders who still wish to colaboratively invest in 2010s as worldwide touth;s most productive decade www.wholeplanet.v


If someone called themselves an economist but did not know how to value exponentials transparently, father would not want to be categorised as in that person's profession- he had been mentored by keynes -as well as a century long tradition of scottish journalism never better recoreded that The Economist's 1943 centenary biography of itself The Economist 1843 - 1943. A Centenary Volume. by Oxford UP (1943) -   that economists either design or destroy the futures that 99% of people want most- he took the hippocratic oath of modeling win-win-win models of the future very seriously however much work, however politically unpopular it was with temporary opinion; he was sad that he aparently lost the battle with the BBC to train their news and economic analysts to represent the questions on futures the peoples most needed -that way the hugest investment ever made in public mass media could have had economic benfits serving the whole world and not just the first net generations of british


norman also knew what more leaders had actually done in more countries through the 20th century than anyone - this was also part of both of his family tree's life expereinces-  helped by his father having been a spy in world war 1 before becoming a british consular and his father-in-law working for quarter of a century in Mumbai to resolve systemic conflicts gandhi had discovered


norman believed in optimism seeing pessimism as a waste of your energy and passion and how goodwill multiplies either slowly grounded  through real communities or speedily viralising through virtual networks


norman loved what the digital networks could do though not much was commonly available during his career at The Economist 1948-1988; he loved opening snailmail from unacknowledged practitioners and throwing press releases in the bin - he used to reply to questions that interested him whomever posted them. Equally, he probably saw more information on decisions that 20th C leaders were making pass over his desk than anyone - he saw this as a privilege of using media to try to improve the human lot


when he wrote an article that powerful people didnt like. he encouraged them to write a letter which he was happy for The Economist to publish as part of an alternative views dialogue- he also knew that the way people write letters in such situations tells you even more about what they are up to

The Economist online library of norman macrae

norman, along with other editorial staff would do one survey a year that would often involve a lot of travel- the rest of the time people would know he was there to be contacted in his office in london- friday (the one day off a week) became the most intersting lunch in london -where world eladers would drop by for off the record debates

when The Economist held an xmas party rn some such - notoriously the guest of glamour at one end would be mobbed by people while in a quiet corner a few people hunted out norman for debates of a sort that stretched the imagination but left people believing in a mission impossible worth adopting as their new year's resolution -

this was how journalists stayed true to entrepreneurial revolution- a term norman took delight in reminding people originated from a time when french peoples liberte egaliet fraternite was achieved by cutting off the heads of the 1% that sought to monopolise all productive assets- norman loved telling stories of how convenient the timing of the french revolution was- across the channel its impact was that Scot James Wilson only needed to launch a newspaper - The Economist - to get Queen Victoria to jump ship from being head of the system design of slavemaking empire to wanting to weave a meta-hub of commonwealth - if The Economist as a Social Action ever failed to be directed at ending hunger and ending capital abuse of youth ,  James wanted it closed without more ado

===============More of part pf a map of who can help linkin youth to what future?
Jeff was at superb 2012 talk you gave commemorating my father ; he as global management consultant partner and I as statistician worked on 2 things at Price Waterhouse Coopers in 1990s - healthcare entrepreneurship and tryng to return common sense to EU. The week after your talk the japan ambassador and sir fazle celebrated my fathers ideas in dhaka. So there is a connecting logic in my madness ... Mark (ex mckinseys and inspired by yunus) is only person i know of wanting to develop a youth investment bank for Egypt. I dont know if his austrian backers would agree with above paradigm . However Shafqat links in bangladesh's most wizard youth open technologists and is discussing with larry brilliant and jeff skoll whether dhaka can be 2nd asian city to hub the risk prevention ILAB. Over next 4 weeks if sir fazle is happy with my open plan, I wil try and massively search mit students as well as re-offer to the 2 retiring students ceos of the mit100k that at least one of them needs go see sir fazle.  Naila runs telecentres and used to be one of the international trailblazers of grameenphone in days when yunus had control over its culture -the vilage phone movement that my dad's great friend george soros was yunus original investor in along with the quadir family who are helping sir fazle design billion youth cashless banking ( the last way for borderless youth to escape macroeconomic death by currency wars and political zero sum gaming). Peter Ryan understands african village curriculum of microcredit better than anyone except sir fazle and my friend Ingrid Munro in Kenya who doesnt use email
window of opporunity - right now on any subject million youth need to online linkin first course on courera will viralise; by next year all the big university partnerships (and gates top-down billions) will be in death spiral of expensive pr trying to claim they are number 1 in each subject millions of youth need- so if bottom up collaborative people do not now make 2013 year of mooc then I expect orwell and einstein were right at least in europe and usa the fastest collasping economies youth have ever been trapped in (which in top down system terme is exactly why and what keynes wrote his general theory to prevent). There is only one american economist who even begins to understand how being the world's reserve currency and  ecologically least sustainable nation are a diabolical reversal of everything that adam smith and declaration of independence meant by freedom
Zasheem edits journal of social business with adam smith scholars out of glssgow university, was first to dream up free nursing collegs. Glasgow is also sir fazle alma mater and the future capital sir tom hunter comes from - he who funded the startup of clinton global
matthew and I first wrote death by branding pr up for The Ecoonomist in 1994 - it would be good if we could write up life by branding unique purpose (which mackey's nurition curriculum friends call conscous capitalism by 2014!) .IF 1990s global-racing acountants properly modelled godwill as multi-win knowledge economy modeling then we would  not be drowning in the greatest maths mistake ever committed. How statistician james Wilson mus be rolling in his Calcutta grave as both the greatest youth economist and transparent mediator of industrial let alone post-industrial revolution system maps
Sunita Gandhi is the most connected person in her father's and the world's largest school at Lucknow http://www.cmseducation.org/ - we became good friends 10 years ago once I had dimly remembered soething dad and I first learnt in 1972 that only education entrepreneurs can be first to save youth when a single generation needs to innovate 10 times more syncchrinised (open) knowhow than history has yet produced. Her family are friends with India's former president Kalam (and chief scientist) authored the book India 2020 which demanded youth tear up all unsustainable curricula before 2020. India's current prime minister was at cambridge a few years after dad - his economics thesis how to design a world so that economics stopped comounding underclasses neith inside a nation nor by externalising onto neighbouring nations. I dont quite know why Manmoham Singh whose economics liberated india seems to have forgotten his own thesis when it comes to whether bangladesh will be spun into civil war or not as elections make it unsafe to visit after summer. http://www.considerbangladesh.com/
paul komesaroff (Melbourne) is the most amazing curriculum leader for australian medical youth who want to be in the places that most desperately need both global disaster relief and local reconciliation -he also studies chinese green/nutritious medical approaches as a hobby
