Valuing curricula of humanity's most joyful economists and system designers


This catalogue tries to link you to the joyful. We welcome feedback if you have other ways pof assessing who's who. Occasionally it is necessary to illustrtae non-joyful economists to understand the mistakes that the joyful helped prevent

We itemise 5 types of future system designers

1 General Theorist eg Keynes

2 General Mediators or Diarists eg James Wilson founder of The Economist

3 Practice Diarist - concerned mainly with future of one trillion dollar market sector eg nancy Wimmer Diarist of happiest futures of energy

4 Practice Leader  eg Yunus leader of happiest futures of energy

5 Biggest Resource decision maker - eg Soros since his life got taken over mainly by philanthropy since 1978

Note: Keynes split economists into 3 types:

  • the joyful whose purpose was to improve the human lt for 99% of people starting with the poorest and sustaining next generation 's productive lives
  • the dismal who knew they were being hired by less than 1% of people to monopolise productive assets and extract from future siustainability of communities or planet
  • the lost: ultimately their egos believed they were searching out perfection but ultimately this trapped them in the dismal;s futures because they failed to understand innovation is always about valuing uncertainty and removing hsitory's constraints over the future

what to read first about joyful economists: i welcome debate on all references -

chrismacrae e  skype chrismacraedc  phone washington dc 1 301 881 1655

-last 3 pages of Keynes General Theory; last chapter of essays on persuasion -understand timing (1930s) was keynes at his peak and west's 20th century at its most conflicted (1930s with hitler and stalin terrifying humanity)- writings about this time also showed hayek at his most insightful in my opinion; immediate post-war disciples of Keynes appear to have been schumacher and schumpeter -who both saw the extremes of communism and capitalism as the same broken system ultimately ruled by and for a few insiders 

-read 1843 james wilson founder's purpose of The Economist - to mediate an end to hunger and an end to capital abuse of youth- undersrand how queen victoria assigned james the fatal project of starting to end empire  more  ... track james mindset to the origins of entrepreneurial economics: the word is French so the frnech revolution of egalite and liberte; the 1776 freeing of usa from trade ruled by UK; adam smith's notes on moral sentiments and how the internbational banking scam of early 1700s bankrupte scotalnd, caused the hostile takeover of the Uk in which scotland was treated like a colony fom which over half of the next 3 generations of scots had to emigrate to be free to developed their livelihoods around the world  - the 4th Norman Macrae Remembrance party was hosted by the Principal of University of Glasgow to explore these principles and debate whether the Futurelearn MOOC platform wanted University of Glasgow to take the lead in co-editng this entrepreneurial branch of economics (sometimes scaled microeconomics top distinguish its bottom-up and open mapping view of mathematical models from macroeconomics top-down and closed plans) -mathematically recall how einstein shows that whenever man's theory breaks down it is time to model dynamic interactions at a more micro level

more on keynes: (however the terminologies they used doesnt travel through time simply and NW hemisphere politicians and their hired academics in the tv age's half century since 1950 have often quoted it values exactly wrongly -thereby destroying public servant democracy )

more on james wilson: which his son-in-law and sceond editor achieved to her satisfaction - turning her role from top of slave-making "empire" into hoped-for epicentre of commonwealth; unfortunately britain's intent to be the best for humanity investor were ended as winning the first world war made the UK biggest financial loser- the baton for best for world investor appeared to be passed on to USA; in my interpretation of history this the USA did to end of second world war where it unfortunately becane neurotic about arms races but fortunately not until the Marshall Plan had refinaced Europe and brilliance of Emperor Hirohito opened up the door for Japan and then Asia to become explorers of best for youth futures (something the region had previously not participated openly in for half a ,millennium -partly due to very inward looking perspectives of china and japan but also these may have been reactions to the way the west's mercantile empire had divided up control of world trade )

In this post we try to shae info on:  Why have the 4 Norman Ma crae Remembrance Parties so-far priritised celebrating

  1.  Bangladesh at 40 out of The Economist Boardroom (Fall 2010)
  2. South Africa's million youth jobs plan transforming schoiols and apprenticeships around missing curriculum of enhtrepreneurial, finbancial and empowerment literacies - a celebration of Blecher and Branson partnerships woth mandela elders nd Google Africa
  3. Japan embassy in dhka celebration of bangaldesh at 42
  4. Glasgow University celebvration of opportunity to MOOC adame smith curriculum through the massive open online colaboration partners of FutureLearn and others eg Khan, Select coursera partners

How do these parties interconnect with 3 birthday wish parties hosted around Yunus at 68, 69 and entering his 7th decade (the Glasgow Interdependence weekend 4 July 2010)

Norman Macrae was mentored by Keynes that system designers segment into 2 opposite groups - pro-youth's futures, anti-youth's futures; unfortunately unless an economist or system designed is always open to being audited to what rising future for youth livelihoods are we designing, the conseqeunce of academics' rewards for appearing to be perfect instructors (instead of joyful exploers) will be to destroy youth's futiures> Therefor eKeynes argued pro-youth economists most pivotal problem is end poverty - all other micro-system dsigns can be win-win integrated around this human goal

When Norma first saw students tesing early digital learning newtorks he made these value judgements:

this would spin a single generation revolution 10 tiems greater than even the industrial revolution

either very good or very bad consequences would irreversibly spin around teh planet with humanity's denoument talking place between 2015 and 2025 making The Economist 175 anniversary an absolutely critical time for all mediators of pro-youth economics and futures

the 2 great freedoms to design in (because they liberate solutions to other life critical sectors) are

cleaner energy

open education

the asia pacific hemispher wold nee dto be twhe worldwide colaboartion lab beause the majotity of youth and poorest (ie under-fulfiled livelihoods were to be located there during the net generation's defining choices of global vilage nbetworking)

Japan's rise since 1962 was to be continued to be celebrated; China should be encouraged to be the open leader of teh 21st C particularly because by 1975 expatriate chinese had 3rd biggest resoirces of all investors - to the extent that there needed to be global reserve currency in 21st C then it had better be connected to this human growth potential not to a nation with 10 times less livelihoods to grow- but because the knowledge networking economy needed to be mapped around win-win models and boderless flows, the conflicts of separated national boundarues and politicians soundbiting over them would need to be celebrated as the major social and collabortive innovation of the net generation

in reherasing tese futures, the curriculum of Entreprejeurial Revolution was founded in the Economist on 1972; by 1984 it had timelined man's greatest ever risk as becoming apparnet at the turn of the millennium and being the fdiferences in incomes and expectations of rich and poor nations; by 1976 The Economist was demanding prizes for ecomnomists who came up with the most radical models for chnaging big 20th c organsiational typologies; Norman's last chnace to judge this contest was in 2008 - when he gladly celebarted the innovations of Bangaldesh's greatest microeconomic leaders as msot knowedgable in the movement to end poverty

What are the greatest end-poverty achivevements viewed (2004) of bangladesh's first 43 years

It is not just ending individaul poverty- it is breaking the cucle of illiterate generations and achgieving tjhis out of a place which began nationhood with the elast respirces in the world and the most violent natural catastrophes

so bangladesh would not be a success story without the educational systems it invested in bottom-up literally through the saving of the world's poorest mothers and village communities

micro-education,redesigning market value chains bottom-up and microbanking were the three-in-one to study between 1972 and 1996 but these also scaled through huge networking knowhow challenges - one fifth of infants were dying through diarrhea which required tens of thousands of village trainers of infant health by mothers (collaboratinbg around the oral rehydration microfranchise) and bottom-up disaster relief and redevelopment - when half a million people were kil;ed by a cyclone, only a bottom up NGO could redevelop the nation and take on urgent serial chalenges such as famine

In coming up with these brilliant pro-youth and end poverty solutions, the interaction of BRAC (Fazle Abed) and Grameen (Yunus) is essential to learn from. While Yunus is more famous, there would have be no rural schools without BRAC , and no infrastructure to connect massive village services through the pre-mobile age

What happened in 1996 was miraculous and Yunus' fame was sufficient that those who wanted to test life-critical knowhow apps brought mobile phones to his poorest villagers to network round- today wherever the poorest have affordable access to mobile they knowledge share in smarter life-critical ways than anywhere else on our planet. Solar energy turned out to be one of the big logistical solutions that mobile connectivity brought but nest stage last mile banking and last mile health services have become equally urgent races in Bangladesh.

In all of this differentiate between what does not and what does need a lot of bandwidth. Phase 2 mobile solutions - mobilising education and telehealth are community broadband apps that rich and poorest world youth may need most collaboration around in 2010s

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?
