Norman Macrae -The Economist pro-youth economist -bravo sir fazle abed & jack ma
year 30 of mediating debatte started at The Economist will net generation win 10 times greaterv productivity for youth or get trapped in Orwell's Big Brother endgame? - in other words will economics' system rule the world by and for less than 1% of people, or so that 100% of youth can grow up anywhere and enjoy freedom of productive lifetimes?
here we discuss 2 cases - possibly the 2 that will most destroy europe's youth's productive potential in this age of a million times more colaboration tecg than when man raced to the moon- unless they change their systems so as to save it
the bbc and the eu -clearly the british broadcasting corporation is public media. We argue in the post-industrial knowledge economy the main role of the EU needed in tranforming job readiness of young people through education and smart new media replacing dumbing down mass media and political institutions wherever tv media turned the practice of public servant into command and controller. however if you don't wish to include the European Union in the debate even after its Nober ratings a a peace prize mediator/catalyst then focus on the BBC
BBC.(Future Possibility of)
blair censors story of iraq had no chemical weapons even after weapon inspector suicide- at last periodic review of bbc charter many citizens cited this as last straw ... bbc must be freed from political censorship but bbc's own public survey falsely analysed all of this
since 1984 we have explained how only public tv networks can help make smartest use of net generation emdia by debating how communities can solve millennium goal chalenges and open source such solutions interlocally and in a way that sustains youth - instead the bbc has managed to do the opposite of support investment in youth at every decision point deploying a monopoly of economic gurus on its nightly news programming who are exactly the greatest risk that Keynes General theory pleaded we never let rule the world
its sort of inevitable that comkmercail media programs people with misinfromation that prevents innovation society needs most but thats why it is obscene interesting when the bbc ends up programming people in ways that blind them to the greatest future choices any generation has been asked to interact http://charter.ning.com

1 Late 20th Century Forbidden Questions include: What contribution will emerging communication technologies make to ...? Does the myth of interactivity legitimize an unbalanced social relationship, or does it make it possible for the audience to challenge the propagandist? . Are truly interactive tools on the horizon? The important difference between our leadership democracy and a totalitarian state is that we are allowed to raise questions such as these. However, history shows that, in times of political crisis and social dislocation, this freedom is one of the first to disappear. As we approach the end of the twentieth century, finding answers to these questions is more important than ever.
