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


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 wherever corporations, governments, charities are destroying net generation's livelihoods?

Is there an optimistic alternative to Orwellian Big Brother as the 5G world becomes borderless and the cost of distance marginal for mobile apps and life critical info sharing?

IN Western Hemispheres, The Economist sought to learn from ever more costly system fixes of 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

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

Keynsian 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

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  chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk  click pic below: view all future shocks of 1972

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.

Since 1960 the legacy of von neumann means ever decade multiplies 100 times more micro-technology- an unprecedented time for better or worse of all earthdwellers; 2025 timelined and mapped innovation exponentials - education, health, go green etc - (opportunities threats) to celebrating sustainability generation by 2025; dad parted from earth 2010; since then 2 journals by adam smith scholars out of Glasgow where engines began in 1760- Social Business; New Economics have invited academic worlds and young graduates to question where the human race is going - after 30 business trips to wealthier parts of Asia, through 2010s I have mainly sherpa's young journalist to Bangladesh - we are filing 50 years of cases on women empowerment at these web sites AbedMOOC.com FazleAbed.com EconomistPoor.com EconomistUN.com WorldRecordjobs.com Economistwomen.com Economistyouth.com EconomistDiary.com UNsummitfuture.com - in my view how a billion asian women linked together to end extreme poverty across continental asia is the greatest and happiest miracle anyone can take notes on - I havent had time to re-edit conversations on other parts of the world; that readers of 2025 report have kindly shared with me - so please note the rest of this column does not reflect my current maps of how or where the younger half of the world need to linkin to be the first sdg generation......its more like an old scrap book- something that semed exciting for humasns when I first heard about it but which the rest of the world may have passed by unless you find its still there!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
