Saving the World +Youth's and Economists' Last 6 Chances

Chapter 0

Index to other chapters

1 Massive Open Online Education

2 Cashless Banking

3 Mobilising Nurses as number 1 grassroots information networkers of 21st C - any nation that is finding healthcare costs spiraling will probably find this is the last gamechanger back to affordable and accessibility of quality healthcare for all


  • Bangladesh's Free Nursing College model emerged after 14 years of being the first nation to experiment with value of mobile phones in ending digital divides in world's poorest villages
  • Currently the most exciting of Obama's 4 billion dollar program of stateswide experiments in community mobile is taking lace in the Clintons Arkansas and is on all the most economical aspects of telemedicine and mobilizing apps that share knowledge between states greatest medical experts and its grassroots rural medical service workers

4 Reforming professionals as win-win-win modellers across borderless planet -IF professions don't have the goodwill and Hippocratic honor to apply this to mapping system dynamics, who will?

5 Locally abundant clean energy, water and nutrition -to make a unstoppable start to replacing carbon and chemical chains with nature's green abundancy we urgently need to celebrate bottom-up and collaborative modeling as much as her evolutionary principles do

6 Freeing market channels to be job creating; and Mediating youth's greatest heroes to celebrate youth serving peace and community across global village  (1 2) world

lessons from incident - world congress first week april 2013 wash dc


learnings from today's incident with VJ
1 we must try to keep offering mooc to everyone eg yunus abed sarah japan embassy ashir sim ....  anyone who has content millions of youth could train round to create jobs and co-produce millennium goals or start ending cultural conflicts instead of being used to fuel them by very bas mass media of which the bbc's lack of good news leadership is appalling
2 as well as trying to find spaces where they can interconnect - that is why if japan embasy ever holds another dinner i believe it should be on how mooc can restiore all pro-youth economic views including japans as essential to regional development, banagldesh's need to connect with asian gunts fatser than islamitrs or hasina closes down the country, sarahs green energy needs
3 other ways that entrepreneurial educators can contribute including gordon and kim from oz and new zealand, taddy-branson mandela from, the gangdhis for india
4 I believe talking about freeing the market of 12 minute modules that millions of youth can act on is the core idea- from that some will make dedicated 6 hour curriculum of their favorite guru while others will try an criss-cross all the most pro-youth content and
5 others will go into deep practical areas- eg what training curriculu moves free nursing colege on to the vision that the 21st most trusted grassroots information network needs to be nurses- only this curriculum can start to bridge all the cultural ars let alone turn around healthcare to become more economicalk instead of more costly everywhere- only this curriculu can ytesyt who ants to bring down degrees of seapartion on life critical information flows- if someone is a digital wizard but isnt prepared to help map how those making apps in medical areas can get into the same overall collaboration web then they may not be worth spending much time with
will yunus and millions of  youth ever be free to mooc saving the world with replicable global village solutions
one way to light fire under yunus diary is to show him the curriculum that duflo is transmitting to millions of youth on end poverty- read in conjunction with her odd book poor economics it is so far away from what his version would be that he should be ending relationships with partners who don't help him correct this asap

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

We had first participated in computer assisted learning experiments in 1972. Welcome to more than 40 years of linking pro-youth economics networks- debating can the internet be the smartest media our species has ever collaborated around?
