The Economist founded the curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution in 1972.
To study why none of the 3 biggest types of 20th century organisational system - gov, com, charity - could exponentially sustain jobs of the net generation, nor any of humanity's most social purposes!


Questions we are most often asked: What 2 opposite worldwide futures will spin depending on whether we invest in the internet being the greatest job-creating media a generation has ever celebrated? Which professions value knowledge era as improving all human livelihoods by up to 10-fold and which aim to replace human jobs? What can young world citizens do if corporations, governments, charities are destroying your net generation's livelihoods?

2 What was designed into the culture of The Economist to make it most economic at mediating global village future debates of post-industrial revolution?

3 What was the optimistic alternative to Orwellian Big Brother as the world became borderless and the cost of distance marginal for mobile apps and life critical info sharing?

4 Which of the 100 forms of adjectival entrepreneur or future capitalism coined after 1972 value the opportunity and risk of celebrating worldwide youth as 10 times more productive and collaborative than ever before? washington dc 301 881 1655

How would the net generation design systems with the greatest social purposes - where television since world war 2 with its noise and politics was destroying sustainability of markets in the most socially critical of sectors. Cases The Economist tracked included:

IN Western Hemispheres, The Economist sought to learn from the system fixes of such early social experiments as National Health Service
BBC World Service
European Union
Political rulership and peace and security at community levels of empowerment and integration

In Eastern hemispheres- consider japan surveys began in 1962; consider asian pacific worldwide youth began in 1975- population statistics clarified that by the 2010s the majority of youthful net generation would be in the Eastern hemisphere - so all the most above zero sum models of post-industrial revolution - eg knowledge collaboration networking races to poverty museums needed to link celebrations in with Eastern youth

.This survey's global village updates included ...

What started Norman Macrae's genre of Entrepreneurial Revolution was a life-changing moment when he and his son Chris first saw students experimenting with digital learning networks in 1972 at The UK's National Development Project in Computer Assisted Learning.

Job Creating Economics

The Economist founded  the curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution in 1972 to add the left-hand questions to this it had been surveying since 1843 in line with adam smith and keynsian economist (right)


How would the net generation design systems with the greatest social purposes - where television since world war 2 with its noise and politics was destroying sustainability of markets in the most socially critical of sectors. 


In particular, with the coming of the internet what would be the new opportunities and risks of: Death of Distance- both as a almost zero  cost for "apping" coded information once everyone had mobile access and as human exchanged value increasingly through borderless markets (where life critical information  needed to be freed by breaking down degrees of separation)


How would energy cleanly go beyond carbon and nuclear

Keysnian list of future systems design


Core challenge end poverty


Entrepreneurial origin - mediating industrial revolution to:

End hunger

End capital abuse of youth

End empire abuses including slavery  and professions with rules that were over-standardised compared with natures local diversity and human's community cultures




Youth Capitalism- how to give the youngest half of the world more than 10% voice in their futures

Starting Late January: How Entrepreneurial Revolutionary can this MOOC be? Let's brainstorm other reasons for Massive Open Online Collaboration than getting a certificate. 

1 coursera  discussion groups may be better than anywhere including facebook for youth to identify new worldwide friends of actions you most want to linkin, skype etc but beware when hundred of thousands of people are in the same linear virtual box the crowdmapping task is challenging

2 first coursera where the host isnt simply trying to make themselves famous as the most knowledgeable professor in the field  (ok there have been a few professors that have tried to free youth to question a few details but not whole systems)

... help us widen open edu debate


the most job-creating previously unknown curricula can emerge from youth summits -  that segment of partners in mooc and youth leaders and practice revolutiobaries that I am most interested in linking into during 2014-2018 probably the last 5 years that will exponentially define the whole net generation future sustainability -its time to mediate the most colaborative heroes peace and cross-cultral joy and entreprenurial energies have ever seen


Grounded Theory is an innovation process which highlights the most curious thing someone says and then iteratively questions the author. While Norman ceased in 2010 to be able to answer his most curious views on the coming post-industrial revolution and sustainability crises of the net generation, his family will try their best to answer queries to yellow-highlighted texts  click pic below: view all future shocks of 1972

Googledoc on 10 Greatest Crises of Green ER - context 250 years ago some places started to grow health and wealth for 99% of peoples not just the 1% of kings and top-down professions. Human development all depended on access to energy and industrial revolution knowhow with (steam) engines; but this compounded various unfortunate zero-sum consequences . Today, two innovations are pre-requisite if the net generation is to be sustainable let alone to be 10 times more productive -1) green energy and food security will need to replace carbon value chains; 2) collaboration around millennium goals wil need to model systems designed around how knowledge multiplies value in use unlike the consumption of things

update entrepreneurial revolution south Africa 2013 (from 1968)

more on whats interesting about taddy  blecher he has always sought to be highly collaborative (eg wanting dr yunus to be involved as much as he likes); he largely uses real peer to peer methods so there is even  more to go for with the first virtual entrepreneur-job creating courses;

and of course on the Nobel Youth Labs  Road to atlanta sSuth Africa is the intermediary stop -  wouldn't it be useful to see how collaboratively Blecher fits with the networks you most want to converge in 2015-

if anyone reading this can help linkin and would like to join our Skype on dec 30 please tell me

My understanding from our editoral volunteers at MandelaUni is:  cape town black youth in 1978 that inspired the start of Soros becoming a philanthropist; I wish we could find the right way to invite him to cape town nobel summit

 it was also soros loans that funded start up of grameen phone so while I don't know the 18 year history of yunus

Here are some of my fathers views of China published The Economist in 1977 Saturday 31 December 1977 pp 13-15 issue 7009





x Here is a 1996 Update from Norman Macrae Guest Column in a UK Sunday Newspaper

Take a Lesson from a Little Dragon

4th February 1996


The 57m overseas Chinese ­ those living outside the country, hereafter called OCs ­ have become several times richer than us 58m Britons. Since so many of the oldest and richest started as coolies, often under British colonial rule, how did they? What changes do we need in British policy to emulate them?

The recommendations in this article are wholly mine, but I pinch most of the recorded facts from two books just published in America. They are written by two of my friends who have been very successful prophets. The books are Megatrends Asia, by John Naisbitt, and Asia Rising, by Jim Rohwer.

The OCs are spread through 60 countries, but Naisbitt calculates 53m now hover round China, ready to dynamise it. They mass in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore. Only 3% of Thais, Indonesians and Filipinos are ethnic Chinese, but they own 70% of those countries' businesses. Perish the thought that the Chinese are genetically brighter than previously hovering British sahibs, and note that today's OCs have had some luck.

One big advantage is that they have no single country, and thus no ruling politicians. They operate from whichever low-tax area suits their talents best. The richest work mostly within the ASEAN Free Trade area, but it has no horror like a Euro commission. If an Asia commission told them to have a single currency, or compensate terrorists for shock while being arrested, or pay for Neil Kinnock's subsidies to a Spanish airline with Spanish trade-union practices, there would be no ASEAN. The OCs' biggest boon is that they do business in Asia's nascent dragon lair, which stretches from India to Japan, from just below the former Soviet Disunion to Indonesia.

That area has 3 billion of the world's nearly 6 billion folk, half aged under 25. They are growing richer faster than any large group in human history, the luckiest at the 7%-12% annual growth rate that doubles real GDP in 6-10 years. But why is the area thus soaring? What are the lessons for British policy? My main conclusion is that Asia teaches us how urgently we need to privatise our education, by vouchers or other means.

As 10-year-old Koreans or Taiwanese surpass British 13-year-olds at maths, the Paddy Ashdowns (who want to increase income tax to "invest in schools") should note that the Asian dragons spend less on state education than the 4%-plus of GDP spent by more socialist places like black Africa and Britain. The dynamic in Asia is parents paying private tuition fees from ordinary workers' incomes, to get their kids as high as they can into the 40-pupil classes of competing meritocrat schools and into whichever has the best record for leading to high-salary jobs. Out of those, the children obviate the need for welfare states by supporting mummy when she's granny.

Some 70% of Tokyo parents pay tutors to edge their children into the best nursery schools. Naisbitt cites a villager in China who has paid $21,350 up front to send her six-year-old son through a private school in Canton. Although $21K is 25 years of her average worker's wage, she drew on the "six-pocket syndrome". Thanks to birth control, a bright young Chinese can have six income-earning adults ­ two parents and two sets of grandparents ­ buying him every educational opportunity in the hope that he will solve all their futures by becoming one of China's 1m millionaires.

Since English is the language of the Internet, there is vast scope for telecomputed teaching of many subjects on it. It is tragic that Lady Thatcher faltered from her intention to finance our state education via vouchers. That would at last have brought consumer freedom to British education. Some voucher-financed schools would allow parents to choose against submitting their children to the habits of the National Union of Teachers. And bright new grammar schools could have big exports in telecomputing microbiology lessons to India.

India's state universities yearly produce more engineers than America's. Since some lack quality, the OCs think this a mistake. They prefer Japan's tiny state sector of free university education, with strict meritocratic entry that now embraces more of the poor than Oxbridge.

Taiwan and other OCs have sent an incredible 8m people since 1960 as graduate students to America and other countries, and gained in accelerated reverse flow because American taxpayers pay for some of this. "In Hong Kong and Singapore we have high-salary, low-tax economies," one returned OC told Naisbitt. "In America you have low salaries, high tax." That probably sums up their miracle.

Dad (Norman Macrae) created the genre Entrepreneurial Revolution  to debate how to make the net generation the most productive and collaborative . 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?
