what future purpose (for next generation) is the market I work in aiming to serve?
Most of us have the brains and guts to serve one or two markets all our lives with great skill and passion -whether we run around trying to please customers, actually "maker" a product, or increasingly in the 21st C share that peculiar type of knowhow (studied around friends and Entrepreneurial Revolution networks of Norman Macrae since 1972) which only grow value when we empower someone else to jointly use it.
It is evident to us that schools do not yet help most students even ask this question let alone answer it. If the majority of those growing productively in the first net generation had rehearsed this question we wouldn't be in today's system crisis which is:
TRILLION DOLLAR AUDIT
most of the world's biggest trillion doialr markets are being powered over by biggest organsisations whose purpose is not aligned with sustaining our next generation
If you think you know of even one trillion dollar market whose largest organisations are aligned with youth's greatest sustainable local purposes - we'd love to hear of it, and celebrate all its workers around the world
The crisis (once you are in the know) is obvious but the solution to it is diabolical (or at least devilish in details) - join us in discussing this if yo0u dare!

Dr Yunus is that rare person that only 1 in a billion of us can be celebrated to be - not because of his love of serving the world's poorest people -
but because he's youth world's most famous person for wanting:
he spent 30 years of his live exploring this question with the world's poorest mothers in Bangladesh - his facilitation method turn each circle of 60 women into a creative lab (over 125000 of these women's ILAB exist in Grameen of 2013- and since 1996 they have ended digital divides - dr yunus and george soros saw to it that in Bnagakdesh the poorest women vilagers got the first chnace of seeing what mobile networking can do
- one that sustained its own finacing, ran is own village marketplace, invested all its surplus in its children job creating education
the year before he won the nobel prize was his 9th year of keynoting the worldwide microcredistummit but he found 2 problems with this:
1 it was only really asking about the future purpose of finacoial services in spire of the fact that in bangaldesh microcredit was designed around the future of every worker's lifetime
2 the summit was multiplying knowhow with youth on the most valuable question of their lifetiome
can youth and yunus help each other?
the idea that has taken 10 years to memerg is that to decalare a capital city's leaders are up for committing to co-create a million jobs- linkin yunus and his friends to help multiply knowledge- but first and foremost to change education - eg through khan academy type 9 minure training modules- so no youth ever passes through school again without knowing how to appthe world's most valuabeuestion to her or his lifetome- and all the social networks she or he linksin
