had spawned and demanded smarter new media correct them:" if the coming global financial system of 2010s was not to collapse". It was in 1972 that dad and I had first seen 500 youth sharing knowhow around an early digital network.
That is also why my father's last project at Norman Macrae Foundation was to launch the Journal of Social Business challenging friends of the pro-youth economist Muhammad Yunus to share what errors in top down mindsets their microcredit summits on millennium goal interactions and their most purposeful community sustaining practices had learnt. The original Bangladeshi microcredits being the greatest youth investment bank designs yet tested on our planet. This is because BRAC and Grameen converged education and technology that poorest village families most economically needed to invest in for their next generation to co-produce the most productive goals our race has ever imagined and could sustain, if we urgently collaborate to get rid of the anti-youth economists -and their endless politics that definitely doesn't serve "we the people" let alone youth.</p><br /> <p>Fortunately, when it comes to the purpose of banking, there is one gamechanger left that will decide winning and losing nations though the point is that gross world product of the post-industrial revolution should never have involving adding up gross national products.

That way all peoples can win-win-win from being more connected than separated with the death of distance as a major cost in communicating and co-working</p><br /> <p>The gamechanger is cashless banking.

icentres of huge political conflicts. This is due to multiple misunderstandings of a brand that can only be simply seen by mapping relationship systems. Specifically the value multipliers between all the coordinates of an economic value exchange in a world of networking information flows and joyfully energised service actions. A world whose economy can be 10 times bigger than an industrial age economy of things whose consumption involves scarcity modeling which is opposite to valuing why and how life critical knowledge multiplies values in use and through trusted connectivity
1 scripting what a brand's unique purpose is to sustain growth for all it connects
2 translating purpose into conscious capitalism other 3 drivers of whether the system is being exponentially designed to sustain growing futures for all or to bubble up and collapse
3 unseen wealth failure to value brand in a transparent way that explain goodwill as connecting with transparency of both the businesses and societal model of leadership
4 therefore a brand becomes a prisoner to change instead of the liberators of people- forces that speculate over this include:
vested interests and their political compatriots
external professions advising the company;
internally different communities of practice of employees each fighting to remain core to the company;
over time such power struggles determine to whether the organisational model of brand leadership is ultimately being governed by an inner group of speculators or for the future development of all that need to trust an exchange if its purspose is to entrepreneurially advance the human lot
5 failure to understand strategic consequences of brand architecture - namely the partnering of brands externally and internally to the organisational system in a way that is fit for 21st century's hyperconnected century whose sustainability demands needs to be modelled bottom -up if any of the net generations greatest collaboration crises and goalls are to be supported by the most valuable resources built through the future history of peoples…
tics or others who pay auditors to measure how to milk an organisation's purpose, rather than improve it through time, then nothing can be more logical than the yunus 100% social business model. This allocates the ownership role of the value exchange to (a trust or the people) in most need of the organisation's services.
While valuing Yunus family friendship as a huge honor, I wouldn't rush to advise young technologists to organsie their lifetime's innovativeness and work around the 100% SB Model. I would argue that the SB51% model may be a hot spot. 51% in trust of those in greatest need of your's organisation's unique goal; 49% so that you can continue to invest in your vision as well as make sure you and yours are provided for. Of course I come from the West where competitors spend huge amounts to try and outmarket you or steal your most talented co-workers especially if they see your weakness as being underesourced.
Over time if you have purposefully built a multi-win value exchange model and are assured that your organsiation's constitution cannot be changed (even if heaven forbid you suddenly dropped dead) there is nothing to stop you putting more of the ownership in trust. It is worth verifying this logic with the CEO campaign to end phony capitalism by celebrating conscious capitalism. cf also radical industrialist and The Economist's recent conclusion that seldom has there been a more economic opportunity than solar
Assuinf you believe it is smart to design the most economic organsiational system from startup - putting 51% in trust is only giving away one doubling in value. And if your brand truly deserves advamcing the most purposeful trust in your sector, can there be a more economical marketing and goodwill multiplying design than one where customers in greatest need of your purpose celebrate your organisation?
When my father's surveys in The Economist of the 1970s first pointed to the Entrepreneurial Revoultion challenge that none of 20th C's largest organsaitional typologies were capable of sustaining the net generation's productivity, once you have reviewed the maths of the exponeetial impacts of the social busienss family of models, you may well wish to award yunus the number 1 pro-youth economics prize in the exciting search for 21st C models capable not just of human sustainability but co-producing any exciting millennium goals that the net generation most wants to celebrate co-producing. You may also wish to look at some other modeling contenders attached or email email@example.com if you have questions or a suggestion for what sort of system you would wish to lead whatever market's service is most critical to your life
Envoi: one technical clue to ponder. Mathematically we have known since 1990 that the big accountants have no valid (multi-win) model of goodwill even thought stockmarkets value this as the vast majority of equity in service or knowledge sectors.

nyone alive and pro-youth in 2013
1 an introduction to humanity's most valuable curriculum- main question if you know an even more valuable curriculum : what is it?
2 why the next 2 months to 1 November 2013 are the most urgent time after spending most of the last 13 years - and particular the subprime era of the last 5 - losing touch with the deep integrated connections that built this curriculum from 1972 (which coincidentally was when The Economist first started the genre of Entrepreneurial Revolution - would we design the next 40 years round making 2010s net generation youth most collaborative and productive time?)
-main question what sorts of movements are left who can make sure the next 60 days doesn't lose touch?
3 more detailed examples of the practical gamechangers that we could be freeing millions of youth to be networking now - which of these do you personally know someone who has an interest in saving -how can we collaborate in linking them in
4 a diary of failed attempts to get usual suspects to do anything more than lobby for funds instead of making sure an open educational curriculum is sustained -question what more evidence do you need for entrepreneurial revolution's simplest value- if you want your place to grow never ever let political systems spend more than 25% of the peoples money let alone youth's futures
ed from future leaders, that the world's organisational brands were totally out of shape- their tv ads were used to positioning product perceptions within different countries languages and cultures. We wrote 2 of the first books on how and why brands would need to partner in all sorts of combinations if they were to have purposeful futures for the coming generation of worldwide youth and open education. Whenever you have such a huge change it makes sense to map how not to sink into threats - system changes towards completely higher order futures don't happen without conscious leadership -gamechanging opportinty - university of stars models - most pivotal us example Monica Yunus's SingforHope - at US Congress, at its own web , at youtube poverty museum race at www.monicayunus.com
.Entrepreneurial Revolution Threat 7 and 6
.. to counter threats 1 to 3 - the corporate network benchmarking purposeful partnerships is conscious capitalism mediated by John Mackeys whose Whole Foods supermarket chain is the only operational big brand sponsor of youth's searches for microcredits sustaining communities - see www.wholeplanetfoundation.org; the open educational networks supporting youth are currently issuing a call for parterships - ask for more info firstname.lastname@example.org - the winner of The Economist's first 40 years of Entrepreneurial Revolution research for total change to organisation design and valuation is the Bottom-UP NGO
THREAT 5 IN 2013 - BANKRUPTING OPEN YOUTH INVESTMENT IN MILLENNIUM GOAL SUMMIT
In other words greenwashing became the biggest threat - big organisations with no unique purpose would pay to take over the missions of organisations that had world chaning pursposes but little finance. Unfortunately 25 years on greenwashing is an epidemic - especially at worldwide summits. Only by daring to ask what does our partnership trasnarently commit to - and want to publish any locally observed failiures - can ummts begin to purge greenwashing. Is there any practical evidence that this understood by conveners of microcreditsummit which now claims to make partenrsjhips one of the man reason for summiting
The 2013 Summit will focus on Partnerships against Poverty: Finance, Government, Business and Civil Society and will feature 5 tracks. Please read below to get a description of each track.
Partnerships Targeting the Vulnerable True financial inclusion for all will require special attention to specific groups of people that remain outside the conventional markets. Groups like the ultra-poor, women, people living in remote areas, people with disabilities, children and youth, the elderly, indigenous populations and others are repeatedly underserved by the traditional banking system and microfinance institutions. To ensure that these vulnerable groups are not left behind, we must extend our reach, develop the appropriate products and services, create safety nets and cultivate a client-centered approach that demonstrates an ability to reach all scopes of the vulnerable. This track will focus on partnerships between entities providing financial products and institutions delivering social services, such as between government agencies and NGOs that are already working in these vulnerable communities and can most effectively reach the poorest.
Partnerships for Serving the Poor in a Digital Age Digital transactions can greatly reduce costs, making it possible to provide a wider array of services to those living in poverty and to reach more remote areas. Successful digital ecosystems—those that reach and support the needs and aspirations of people living in poverty—require partnerships among those providing digital platforms, payment facilities, financial instruments, and cash-in cash-out services as well as with organizations that have already built relationships of trust in low income communities. This track will showcase partnerships that use digital technology to expand options and improve products available to those people who are currently excluded from the formal financial system.
National Partnerships “Full” financial inclusion should also protect clients and provide appropriate products that help those in poverty to mitigate risks and take advantage of opportunities. To achieve, this partnerships must be established at a national level with government agencies, financial regulators, payment processors, and financial service providers. This track will look at such financial inclusion strategies developed in several countries (such as the Philippines and Pakistan) and identify the roles in the financial ecosystem to help bring about that inclusion.
Cross-Sector Partnerships People living in poverty face many challenges. Appropriate financial services help them deal with some, but not all, of these challenges. Pioneering financial institutions focused on helping clients move out of poverty have invented a variety of methods for using the infrastructure they’ve built to deliver other services needed by their clients, including health care, housing, education, and access to markets. This track will look at several good examples of these cross-sector partnerships between a financial service provider and a social service agency, government agency, or social business.
Business Partnerships Microentrepreneurs and small scale producers can expand their income and diversify their risks when they can access markets outside of their own communities. Mass market businesses can access lower-cost inputs if they can source from small scale producers, but they often find the task of organizing those producers prohibitively expensive. This track will look at programs that link microenterprises and small farmers with national market outlets through financial institutions that help organize producers and provide capital for them to expand production, thus building an inclusive value chain.
Glossary -SW - historical strength and weakness of asssets; OT -compound positive and negative impacts
Collaboration - before the internet most associations valued their goodwill/purposes separately- from youth futures viewpoint capability valuing collaboration is the great new freedom
In order to provide context to valuation, it is smart to have a genera discussion of goals youth need most and to clarify if anyone sees how to currently match goal and service network. By anyone we include 1 youth, 2 educators, 3 cirtizens and community groups, 4 sustainability investment networks, 5 others
international cultures eg aiesec
development aid valued sustainably and strategically for youth -doesnt exist but could be linked in around outstanding models such as blessed coffee
community jobs solution replicators - unfortunately no collaboration meta-network exists
transparent investment modellers - eg is kiva one? is gabv.org one
cross-professional purpose auditors- unfortunately doesnt exist but is conscious capitalism intended to be one?
foundations as youth futures most trusted bankers of open source and space facilitators - dont exist but confederation of ilabs could be; potentially open society if philanthropists joined in and also sorted out their often hidden demographic roots
the next great open network innovation (ebay ...google ,, facebook .. twitter..) if its was 51% modelled round purpose and only 49% modelled around financial extraction
who could unite these futures- citizen chapters confederation of open universities? - confederation of foundations and billanthropists
How could we write whitepapers to come top of what searches
of WholePlanetfoundation introduced BRAC like this:
Big Isn’t Bad: How BRAC is Quietly Creating Opportunity for Millions
From humble beginnings in Bangladesh, the global anti-poverty giant BRAC has grown into the world's largest – and some say most effective – nongovernmental organization. BRAC uses a holistic approach to development, with a wide array of tools including microfinance, healthcare, education, legal services, and more. Known as one of the world's best-kept secrets among those fighting to eradicate poverty, BRAC represents a new approach to development. It is one of the few large global nonprofits with origins in the developing world, and today it is spreading solutions born in Bangladesh to 10 other countries.The Economist recently called BRAC "the real magic of Bangladesh." The organization touches the lives of an estimated 126 million people worldwide, including about three-quarters of all Bangladeshis. Today, the shift from aid dependency toward self-sufficiency is spreading. Investments from partners like Whole Planet Foundation are needed to lay the foundations for long-lasting change.(Pictured above: BRAC’s founder, Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.)
initially thought that BRAC would be a short-term effort. But the realities of entrenched poverty soon changed our minds. We began working in a host of areas – agriculture, healthcare, human rights, microfinance, education – wherever the poor faced obstacles.
We found that poverty was so entrenched that only a long-term effort of social and economic transformation would uproot it. And this task became my life’s work.
I have learned much along the way. Perhaps the most important thing I learned was that when you create the right conditions, poor people will do the hard work of defeating poverty themselves.
I learned the importance of having lamps to illuminate your path, even when the precise course is unclear. For me, one of these lamps was Paulo Freire, a Brazilian educator, who wrote a book called Pedagogy of the Oppressed, which had a profound effect on me. Freire's idea of conscientisation, or raising critical consciousness, informed us in our belief that poor people, especially women, can be organised for power, and that with right set of organisational tools, they can become actors in history.
This, to me, is the meaning of an open society – a society where everyone has the freedom to realise their full potential and human rights.
We’ve seen that without scepticism, scientific inquiry, and the constant questioning of one’s assumptions, the highest ideals will falter when tested against reality. In the words of Karl Popper, among the enemies of open society is the notion of “prophetic wisdom,” the type of knowledge that leaves little room for doubt. In contrast to utopian goals, Popper embraced “piecemeal social engineering” – solutions that are effective, even if they are not the most elegant.
There is an element of that in BRAC – in its willingness to adapt, in its constant innovation, and in its willingness to learn from its own mistakes. After more than 40 years, we are still a learning organisation.
The vision of BRAC is a world free from all forms of exploitation and discrimination. I am sometimes asked if such a world is really possible – whether I believe that poverty can be truly eradicated. The truth is, I believe it can be.
Ladies and gentlemen, we can see today that poverty is on the retreat. Recent statistics from the World Bank show that in every region of the world, the number of people living in extreme poverty is dropping for the first time in recent memory.
But to borrow Popper’s phrase, there is no prophetic wisdom in this fact. The eradication of human poverty remains an ongoing and arduous task rather than historical certainty, and much work remains. And I invite you to bring your own creativity and potential to this task.

Keynes quote selected from this wonderful compilation:
"I should... conclude rather differently. I should say that what we want is not no planning, or even less planning, indeed I should say we almost certainly want more. But the planning should take place in a community in which as many people as possible, both leaders and followers wholly share your own moral position. Moderate planning will be safe enough if those carrying it out are rightly oriented in their own minds and hearts to the moral issue. This is in fact already true of some of them. But the curse is that there is also an important section who could be said to want planning not in order to enjoy its fruits but because morally they hold ideas exactly the opposite of yours, and wish to serve not God but the devil."-- John Maynard Keynes, in response to Hayek's criticism of his theory of deficit spending during bad times and payback during good times (Heilbroner, Robert (2000). The Worldly Philosophers, 278–8)
