ng entrepreneuril revolution in schools- a search I started as soon as I became a networked parent.Consider being dad's sub-brand of something the world could gain from knowing about and connecting through next. Its a bit like a really useful tourguide if you wish. As Marrriott HQ is a few hundred yards away I was about to do an all out assault into turning them into a global brand partner of yunus but then someone took over as yunus global ad agency so formally I am no longer allowed to talk to yunus on global brand and have to pretend I can be an economist. The greatest consider will have 99.999% impact virally on webs but I am a believer of the leaflet too. A gandhi leaflet was picked up by reuters in the early 20th century and gained him 4 hemisphere awareness over night; whilst launching consider bangladesh at dads remembrance party at The Economist boardroom may not do the same thing 60 people have a chance at that - eg consider leaflets and journals of social business aim to hub the same leadership connections. I will attend annual sharehlders meetings of The Economist and handout considers; I invited yunus to do likewise but he said he could possibly own a share in a dividend issuing system. The first time that considers need to be ready to jam the net is dr yunus testimony to congress www.grameeneconomics.net www.erworld.tv Jonathan founded www.the-hub.net in 2004. It has the doubling phenonenon and we associate with moores law in various waysDoubling action of particular knowledge foci or replication service sub-franchises it chooses; eg out of africa we can be pretty confident that solutions that sustain african people will be coordinated by lesley provided we give her enough resources and pointers to what to know about and spread first; she has a tireless energy to improve the lot of africans out of s.african and doubles her own histing competence annuallythe hubs also doubles perhaps every 2 years in entrepreneur membership and future capitals where you can share an office; of course this is where we need to help jonathan find more lesleys that the bulk of the-hub.net members want to action learn with other than any other species of entreprenur; I think this is partly why jonathan travelled both to dhaka and nairobi this last quarter to ask yunus and ingrid munro for ideas on how to sustain the system design of hubs, as well as how to help them where my first investment suggestion is to urgently plant a hub (can be one part time correspondent but highly trusted by leadership and polulace) near each of them; I have also prevailed on jonathan to meet as much as he can of sam daley harris can- whose 30 years of developing summits and the lobby that keeps congress in touch with hunger is the most underacknowledged human network feat known to me- gordon and sunita gandhi would certainly merit being in the same league- all 3 have spent lives applied to going beyond teaching - faciliating action learning networks and a bonus meeting with monica yunus www.singforhope.org who I have great faith in mainly because of the character of her soul but also with my bias as for 10 years I have been looking for a star to lead a model I call university of starsthere are of course many intrepretations of hubs as the molecular (open interfacing) component of netowrks- often the real spaces which can keep our virtulal lives productivity grounded; yunus grameen model of 8 million members builds a new village hub for every 60 villagers - this micro market is also their own community market place and open source knowledge sharing space; when yunus acquired mobile telecom for cents in the dollar in 1996 we could say grameen became the most inspired hub network on earth; also a prototype of what the 2 economists beginning with sch talked about as needing a 21st c economy integrated around 2 million global vilages where we ended poverty and any other sustainability crisis from evey community in the very design we banked around - as featured in dads 1984 bookI have also been inspired by an admittedly lost friend to believe every school and university needs a hub; at the boundary of what students are examined on between 9-4 this could be safe space for learning apprenticeship, doing community services, connecting with entreprenurial hubs; it should be there from start iof adolescence so every underprivliged child has a choice of street ganging on developing on income generating creativityI am sure jonathan has infintely more nuanced understanding of hubs; we are believers in sponosring open spaces so that each of the 20 most vital trillion doar markets has a hi-trust map linking into leaders who are freeing that market;'s sustanability exponentials not extracting or externalising ; if we can do that in time the invitation to make the 2010s net gen's most excitind decade when we unite to sustain the earth and show its abundance can support 7 billion co-workers productivities to their hearts content will be more exciting than the 1960s moon race; that is the Game Beyond The Games - it requires economics to be reframed way above zeros-sum and quite frankly the only sectros we most need to downsize are those of the goldman sachs, those of the wpp and those of the mckinseys; professions who make rules or who dominate share of freedom of speech need to be hubbed openly faster than I can write…

who's job creating education revolution might you wish to explore first? Dryden has done the greatest experiments we know of in anticipating how to change schools as the internet appeared -something he started working out of New Zealand on in 1984 after reading my dad's book on the most exciting changes a next generation 1984-2024 have ever faced;
Abed has been working on how to provide primary schools in rural areas that the world's poorest government - Bangladesh of the 1970s couldn't reach- over 40 years he's built the world's largest and most collaborative NGO, and become interested in every stage of education while also sustaining nearly 50000 primary schools in the most affordable high quality way; Sunita is part of the extraordinary Gandhi family who have founded the world's largewt city schooling system (Lucknow); she has also built her own school where montessori students can now study primary curriculum in any order they choose (computers record wht tasks each students has achieved); Negrapronte has taken millions of laptops to the world's poorest regions mapping what extraordinary ideas communities of primary students experiment with from first meeting a wired up computer
out of south africa and with mandela/branson partners taddy blecher has turned universities and is now turning secondary schools into job creating experiences however poor the student; none of our tours will take you to someone who has been working longer on schools than jagdish gandhi- he and his wife started lucknow school with about 4 children over 55 years ago- today it has 50000 children- is the only school to win a UNESCO peace prize; jagdish adds in cross-cultural world citizenry curriculum and almost every week an international competition is going on somewhere linking some of lucknow's 50000 children with international guests; Khan academy is probably the largest secondary online resource that's free for anyone to use; in little more than 2 years, Daphne Kohler and her founding team at Coursera have linked together the fastest growing MOOC for online courses at tertiary level; MIT is the number 1 job creating alumni network in the world; Monica Yunus has vision on how a country could be better off by helping young people be cross-cultural peacemakers in every community through celebrating cultural events with guest appearances from superstar friends she asks to give back
Exercise -study one of these links and add one thing that first impresses you- or write a review of another schooling system if you feel it merits being alongside our choices
compare these new pathways with what western governments have done to schooling where we're only exagerrating a little to say that teens find themselves confronted with one of 3 choices - be examined and examined and examined, or take the chance of making it as a top sports star or if neither of those matches your ability make it out with gangs on the streets- all three of those routes miss the extraordinary opportunity internet transformed education can become to increase most children's future lifetimes to be many times more productive and joyful than ever before www.wholeplanet.tv

THE LAST HUMAN RACE - Open Economics Curriculum for 11 year olds
PTO: to see why the race to MOOC needs to have more impact by and for youth on sustainability than race to atom bomb
The Manhattan Project: Making the Atomic Bomb -
The Einstein Letter http://www.atomicarchive.com/History/mp/introduction.shtml
On October 11, 1939, Alexander Sachs, Wall Street economist and longtime friend and unofficial advisor to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, met with the President to discuss a letter written by Albert Einstein the previous August. Einstein had written to inform Roosevelt that recent research on chain reactions utilizing uranium made it probable that large amounts of power could be produced by a chain reaction and that, by harnessing this power, the construction of "extremely powerful bombs..." 1 was conceivable. Einstein believed the German government was actively supporting research in this area and urged the United States government to do likewise. Sachs read from a cover letter he had prepared and briefed Roosevelt on the main points contained in Einstein's letter. Initially the President was noncommittal and expressed concern over locating the necessary funds, but at a second meeting over breakfast the next morning Roosevelt became convinced of the value of exploring atomic energy.
Einstein drafted his famous letter with the help of the Hungarian émigré physicist Leo Szilard, one of a number of European scientists who had fled to the United States in the 1930s to escape Nazi and Fascist repression. Szilard was among the most vocal of those advocating a program to develop bombs based on recent findings in nuclear physics and chemistry. Those like Szilard and fellow Hungarian refugee physicists Edward Teller and Eugene Wigner regarded it as their responsibility to alert Americans to the possibility that German scientists might win the race to build an atomic bomb and to warn that Hitler would be more than willing to resort to such a weapon. But Roosevelt, preoccupied with events in Europe, took over two months to meet with Sachs after receiving Einstein's letter. Szilard and his colleagues interpreted Roosevelt's inaction as unwelcome evidence that the President did not take the threat of nuclear warfare seriously.
Roosevelt wrote Einstein back on October 19, 1939, informing the physicist that he had setup a committee consisting of Sachs and representatives from the Army and Navy to study uranium.2 Events proved that the President was a man of considerable action once he had chosen a direction. In fact, Roosevelt's approval of uranium research in October 1939, based on his belief that the United States could not take the risk of allowing Hitler to achieve unilateral possession of "extremely powerful bombs," was merely the first decision among many that ultimately led to the establishment of the only atomic bomb effort that succeeded in World War II-the Manhattan Project.
The British, who made significant theoretical contributions early in the war, did not have the resources to pursue a full-fledged atomic bomb research program while fighting for their survival. Consequently, the British acceded, reluctantly, to American leadership and sent scientists to every Manhattan Project facility. The Germans, despite Allied fears that were not dispelled until the ALSOS mission in 1944,3 were little nearer to producing atomic weapons at the end of the war than they had been at the beginning of the war. German scientists pursued research on fission, but the government's attempts to forge a coherent strategy met with little success.4
The Russians built a program that grew increasingly active as the war drew to a conclusion, but the first successful Soviet test was not conducted until 1949. The Japanese managed to build several cyclotrons by war's end, but the atomic bomb research effort could not maintain a high priority in the face of increasing scarcities. Only the Americans, late entrants into World War II and protected by oceans on both sides, managed to take the discovery of fission from the laboratory to the battlefield and gain a shortlived atomic monopoly.

Please help diagnose this problem; then search for whether there remains a solution
1 By happy and free- we value these terms as the organisational declaration of independence in terms of every being have a fair chance to sustain a productive lifetime
2 What would be the profile of such places - either the youth would turn violent - so authorities might imprison them drug them or give them guns to shoot each other; or if they were able the youth go somewhere else leaving old people to quarrel over there being no way to support their pensions, health care, safety
or children would die of ill health or never get enough education to be able to be free/happily productive
REALITY CHECK - how many different sorts of places around the world can you spot where this sort of future is compounding
How could this happen - well it happens when many different organisations -eg governments, economists, banks, corporations, media , teachers - all forgot the purpose of structuring capital around family savings to invest in next generation's communal productivity
Was this happening foreseen as possible for the first quarter of 21st CYES in The Economist from 1972. Entrepreneurial Revolution was coined as the genre of realising that the coming of the internet and a global village connected age could only have one of 2 opposite impactes de[pending on how systems were designed
the most productive and collaborative age for youth everywhere
an age where more and more peace lost happy and free youth - which ultimately would destroy the sustainability for the human race even faster than correlated crises like climate, nutrition, ...
Can the human race pull itself back from the brink
Well recognise the problem -dare to debate it openly through any public or truly social media
There are now at least 20- anti-youth monopolies that Entreprenenurial Revolutionaries can map
4 of these are in education and can be resolved if we design moocs to make youth happy and free again
but in parallel every other type of professional or practitioner will need to review what purpose of their market can sustain happy and free youth…
the futures peoples want most or destroys these futures.
Keynes called this economics, but we are not fussed with what the discipline is called. Keynes did his greatest work at Cambridge University during the second quarter of the 20th Century. He was actually quite shocked by the conclusion of his greatest book "General Theory" that increasingly the world would be ruled by economics. And he advised practical people to be alive with curiosity about the greatest risk to our future generations being elderly economic academic scribblers!
My father was a teenager in world war 2 navigating Royal Air Force airplanes over modern day Bangladesh and Myanmar. He then went up to Cambridge to be the last journalist tutored by Keynes. Dad spent the next 40 years editing every innovation story he could find with a pro-youth lens- would this leadership news be globally and locally valuable to helping make the net generation more productive and sustainable?
2012 Year 40 of Futures Correspondence around The Economist's Entrepreneurial Revolution
In 1972, father saw an early experiment of 500 youth interacting simultaneously around a digital network of computers linking in 4 different universities in the North of England. Dad penned a future history on the next 40 year and soon coined "Entrepreneurial Revolution" as the genre for the most exciting stories on changes to the productive possibilities of the coming internet generation. By 1984, his and my future history "the 2024 Report" mapped the challenges the net generation would face in co-creating 3 billion jobs with technology would offer a million times more collaboration energies than when man used computers to race to the moon in the 1960s.
Dad shared with me 2 different ways of participating in the futures peoples want.
The simple way, mainly used in this book, is to identify a market or service that matters to you because it has life critical impacts. Then help as diverse groups of people as you can reach discuss what future purpose they most want - with particular focus on visioning the next generation's productivity.
A complex way intervenes with the theories - and makes transparent the dynamics and assumptions of the historic systems - that have spread all over the world of man-made value exchanges.
This book is arranged around 10 chapters. Each provides details on hosting a discussion with cases of futures representing trillion dollar global markets and purposes with huge impacts on everyone's lives.
Like my father I try particularly to value sustainability of our children's opportunities and their future generations which the worldwide webbed world is making ever more connected. At the end of each chapter I have added a few questions and notes which ask about making the complexity of economic theory more transparent and contextually practical. However any errors in the endnotes are mine alone and do not change the reason why debating the future purpose of each trillion dollar market needs to be mediated as diversely and as joyfully as 21st century peoples can muster through new interactive media and old broadcast media
10 markets - please help us edit these pro-youth market futures - firstname.lastname@example.org
Futures of Pro-Youth Banking - Purposeful actions
1 Save regularly as early as possible however small amount
2 Credit only for income generation or family safety
3 Invest in (mothers) communal goals for next generation (kenya case mobile youth's regeneration of slums)
a1 banker in community should try any small scalle experime- eg if bank distributing vegetable seeds works to create value and restore infant nutrition great
a2 a core process of community banking is to linkin peer circles as well as community owned market - this maximise match between supply and demand and makes and so sustainable income generation
a3 community owned banks never encourage property or land speculation but they need to be strategically responsible for family's sustainability in community vis a vis exteernal pressures (eg city creep into rural over a generation)
a4 it is not the case that microcredit is only responsible for one person businesses- it takes strategic ccharge of hole value chains from bottum up as well as making the greatest einnovationsfrom point of view of advancing human lot design infrastructure chnages round franchises with community owned equity (telephone ladies oar energy ladies ...) building ecovillages!
4 membership wide insurance - affordable group purchased solutions , disaster protection
5 organise almost free wellness peer to eer action groups
3 generations of microcredit model
3 mature mobile cash is gamechanger
majority of 3 billin new jobs of net generation in all nations can't proceed escept where this banking is free to flourish sustainably
Few changes are more urgent than the exciting roles 21st c foundations can play- both with life critical needs that have been left unmet in some communities and in catalysing patient investments in open infrastructure through partnership networks that 20th century organisations couldn't map how to get collaboratively started on
The 21st c foundation (including what the 20th century called charities, aid and NGO (non governmnet office) could target many of the most exciting millennium goals that the net generation can imagine and invest in youth co-producing these.
An essential innovation is for foundations to want to be the most economical designers of community-owned service franchises.
The franchise is the most basic operational module of the service econmy as The Economist survey on intrapreneurship argued in 1982. It structures a way a local team can provide a solution a community needs in a way that sustains both the emotional joys of local teamwork and access to actioning world class knowhow and facilities.
Aravind is a "foundation" case whose leader explicitly walked this talk. His mission's goal: end unecessary blindness by francising cataract operations so that the poorest could be treated. This video shows him demanding of himself the efficiency of a Mcdonalds but use of positive income model to replicate franchsies and so accelerate achievevemnt of the end blindness goal not to take a profit out.
What makes a specific community-owned service solution most economical to sustain is entrepreneurially contextual. The essons of aravind (some of which may apply to the serving the greatest human goal you can imagine and some which wont) include:
cross-subsidising - those prospective atients who can afford the operation pay for up to 2 people who can't
efficiency with expert's time- the aravind eye surgeon performs 10 times more cataract operations than any other ; that's part of the brilliance of the franchsie which borrowed on all the greatest knowhow of experts in the field which in this case involved all the community of practice of Larry Brilliant (an american with more medical goodwill network contacts than most as eg a friend of the google founders but also the practice networker who helped asians end the very last case of smallpox)
equally over 95% of the patient service time including finding patients can be done by nurses trained only for eye patients and with access to the simplest kinds of mobile technology -it turns out that village girls can be taught how to be para-eye nurses in about eight weeks. At least once a year aravind turns itself into a free college where thousands of new eye nurses are born
Few changes are more urgent than the exciting roles 21st c foundations can play- both with life critical needs that have been left unmet in some communities and in catalysing patient investments in open infrastructure through partnership networks that 20th century organisations couldn't map how to get collaboratively started on.
economic foundations need to celebrate positive income models as this enables their leaders to accelerate the goal of the whole organsaition and stop having ever more of their time spent on fundraising
thr human race's life critical goals are surely where we should expect to celebrate today's millions time more collaboration technology first and through brilliant open network partnering ( collaboration entrepreneurship)
BRINGING DOWN DEGREES OF SEPARATION ON LIFE CRITICAL INFORMATION FLOWS FIRST
Imagine how smart a use of dnew media we humans can make, as Norman Macrae did as first economic journalist of the net generation in 1984. Why not worldwide webs in which pro-youth media is designed to search out where one community has a brilliantly economical service that other communities need. Provided the innovator of this solution wants to open source it to be owned by host communities, foundations can play the role of banking the franchise replication. This is where the sustainable charity models made most famous by Bangladesh provide an opportunity to solve challenges that separated government, non-profits, companies and media could not do. Only positive income models can get on moores law acceleration - today we can apply this not just to annual doubling of the chips compuyting power but service replication. By 2011 Grameen was on a moores law doubling role in installing solar units up to 1 million installed from half a million in all the eyars to 2010
Replicating franchises to be community owned involves surgically choose how to change value chains to be bottom-up and open flowing. This economic interventon that foundations can help youth mediate to end poverty in developing world is congruent in system mapping terms to with will be needed in developed countries to end high youth unemployment . It doesnt make sense to be the generation with the greatest collaboration technologies the human race has ever shared and not to be investing in youth communally making exciting productive uses of this.
In 2 summits involving over 4000 Europeans at end of 2011, the EU recognised that this role of foundations may be the last chance we have of getting European youth back to work. There are hundreds of billions of dollars of dormant capital lying in the hands of european foundations. For sure, there are many cross-cultural and inter-demographic muddles which need tactful conflict resolution as well as constitutional changes so that charities can invest in accelerating their greatest purposes wherever moores laws doubling of achievement are possible. We need to anticipate that some foundations are accidentally anti-youth as may be the cultures of the elder generations that bequeathed them; some laws prevent such social privatizations from being entrepreneured by precisely the peoples who most need to be communally integrated. Sometimes professional monopolies prevent youth from playing para-professional roles that new technology makes practical and which is far better for those communities which will otherwise end up with neither the fully qualified professional working there and with youth hanging around with nothing to do but to lose hope . For example over 100 million jobs can come from investing in girl power if we embrace the franchising mission to end nurseless villages and in the process we can make healthcare for all affordable again. Foundations that get this include nike foundation and mastercard foundation
Leadership teams in 20th century foundations often were not selected for tech or entrepreneurial capabilities. However such a gap explains how large the opportunity can now be if we celebrate open information worlds wherever life critical knowhow-actions has previously been blocked from flowing. One of the missing clues of organisational design comes from the father of computing John Von Neumann. He wondered aloud what sort of new organisational typologies will be invented when those who are both most capable and most socially passionate will be able to handle 50 team projects at the same time each of whose analytical components will be accelerating as computers make pure number crunching a billion times less costly to do. Please note this does not mean that the hi-tech world should be led by numbers; it means as the mathematician Turing was first to celebrate that there should be much smarter jobs designed round what humans can recursively do and no soulless machine ever can.
We should be helping youth vote for the most exciting millennium goals and investing in their co-production. Logically we might expect that some of the most purposeful organisations in the world will come from the foundation mission culture but not the type of model they used in 20th c.
This opportunity often becomes clearer once you think of a particular practice purpose. For example the most exciting social solution in university world is the virtually free university which sees job-creating youth however poor as the greatest investment any place can make. Celebrating jobs competitions of youth entrepreneurs is one of the "new media" -see what wonderful social solutions youth want to work on from emerging celebrations of this kind
Homes, land, family, community

One technical issue comes top. Its understanding compound impacts.
Let's say that you double yor productivity or reachig your goal every 8 years- that means over a lifetime of 40 years you can 2*2*2*2*2*2= 32 times multiply growth or progress your greatest goal. How much growth do you need to attain each year to do that - just 9.1%.
When banks or others responsible for peoples intergenerational savings reward people for aiming at excess of 9% returns they are behaving in ways that are statistically bound to destroy the place you live in. Conversely just because some errant bankers may have bankrupted your place that does not mean that right now youth should be imprisoned from developing the great possibilities of the net generation. If german , swiss , american banking or politicians say youth anywhere should be deprived of this once of thenet generation acess to million times more collaboration productivity than when man raced to moon in the 1960s then they are not only disatrously wrong economically but they havent learnt from history what causes wars between nations. And in this ear of ever increasing human interconnectvity causing such aggression yo spiral will probably end human sustainability even fater than man;s current war with nature
Larry Brilliant- 100/13 leaders of 2010s -youth's most productive generation
FREEMARKET Role - Understanding risk espeially Health and Safety's Most Life Critical Maps of Connectivity
What would world miss without Larry Brilliant?
First consider 2 cases Larry had a huge influence in before mobile connectivity became ubiquitous
He's probably the most trusted medical expert of combating unnecessary blindness. His expert network helped the Indian founder or www.aravind.org - one of the most brilliant examples of a service franchsie designed round purpose instead of profit extraction. Aravind's founder asked why not open source life critical knowhow (his goal being ending unneccessary blindness in india) as a team franchise with the efficiency that Mcdonalds profites from replicating fast food. Aravind is arguably the clearest case of a replicable social business franchise in a medical field
Larry's own most famous moment came in ending the last case of smallpox. Ending a plague takes extraordinary coordination of local mapping information. Ending such a risk depends on how collaboratively bottom-up information flows are shared.
Larry took his practical experience to reducing degrees of separation of life critical information to his job as first head of www.google.org and currently works with Jeff Skoll www.globalthreats.org on popularising the relationship betwen compounding risk and man's accelrating connectivity. The project that begun this whole emerging area for Skoll networks of entrepreneurship seems to have been the filming of Gore's inconveneint truth
Until recently mankind didnt build systems on the same global sacle as nature. Consequently when a disatrous mistake was made it might collapse a civilisation but not the whole human race. Mathematicians as early as Einstein have warned its not obvious that the human race will survive the techbology of extreme connectivity. Ironically Von Neumann -the father of modern day computing- died before his time due to nuclear exposure. The dynamics of nuclear and plagues are 2 heath and safety risks everyone can see. Those who have stuidied expoential impacts most including Larry would add such compasses as poverty's loss of hope among youth, climate and other crises where man scales a global dynamic in opposition to nature;s value selection, and history's record . This show that with every new connectivity media: evil networkers have linked in faster than goodwill networkers. All Hitler needed to spread his evil propaganda fastest was the seemingly small innovation of audio tape recording integrated with radio - his vicious propaganda could be endlessly replayed while people of goodwill had to make each of their speeches live.
Next collaboration challenges
Since the start of the fourth quarter. media entrepreneurial revolutionaries have been focused on the 64 trillion dollar question will the human race use digital media to get collaboratively smarter, or to get dumber and more addicted the way orwell's big brother endgame spins

Is you region's future led by economics of scaling up small is beautiful ,or letting the big get bigger rule over everyone else with systems that are too big to exist
By France's defintion the entrepreneurual school of economics is interested in integrating society's visions of each global markets purspose- which markets do you know of that have enough freedom of speech to value society's view of sustainability's exponential impacts
Discuss does the 21st C have an equivalent of the trio gandhi-montessori-einstein who worked to transform rule over india by british empire? This had accidentally become professionally about command and control ( separation's top-down ivory towers) instead of the mathematically deeper integration skills needed on the ground to value mapping context, diversity, botlom-up and open the way nature rules her world of evolution, -and which webs are humanity's first tool to mimic with! Collaboration is the new competitive advantage andthe good news is its economics thrives on abundancy not manipulating scarcity
Norman Macrae Foundation next steps
Norman Macrae and Peter Drucker first met before Norman reached his teens. The occasion was an informal dinner party while Norman's dad worked at British Consular in Stalin's Moscow. It was from those first observations that peter and norman as avid diarists were to be the 20th's century's most clear advocates of economists bever desigbing system that are too big to exist. By 1984 as the first journalist of the internet generation,Norman wrote by 2005 man recognised that the gap in income and expectations of rich and poor nations became recognised as the human raec's greatest risk.
To date 21st c economists have completely failed to be transpararent about the worldwide dynamics of networkng compound risk. This is spite of Brookings expert report on this phenomenon in 2000 called Unseen Wealth. Unfortunately just as bilpolar usa politics between bush and gore threw out all of the whole truth's debates on climate sustainability they threw out understanding that economists should always value the search for win-win-win purpose not the race by the big to get bigger. The economically sustainable way to advance the human lot is to adopt Sir Fazle Abed's maxim. Small may be beautiful, but in Bangladesh large scale is absolutely essential. This is why understanding aravind type cases of open microfranchising innovations are crucial to the future capacity of economics to design the futures peoples most want. Note this ABC
A) how a service franchise starts with turning one community into a social lab, working for how ever many years it takes to perfect a service franchise that bring's downs degrees of separation of world know to a very local app
B) demand that such life critical apps are primarily open sourced as community-0wned franchises
C) Ensure that every place structures enough of family's savings as cpaital that invest in the productivity of that place's next generation. That's why investment banks for the poor turn out to be the most trusted financial systems for replicating open source franchises round life critical apps. Norman's last articles written in 2008translated this understanding to prevent usa/europe from spinning wall street's subprime folly grandeur into quintuple dip recession through 2010s. His 1984 work on the internet clariiued why the way we integrate every community into globalisation will either produce the most productive time for worldwide youth or destroy this. There is no in-between endgame from being the first generation that is more connected than separated.

did the very opposite to the purpose of developing youth livelihoods which is the only way communal growth is ever sustained- that's why Entrepreneurial Revolution's undercover mission on the road to Atlanta -main sponsors luther king family, turner cnn & UN foundation family, carter rights family) or any Capital with a future is make youth job creating summits more popular as a worldwide intercity movement than the olympics ( this worldwide challenge movement swarms on cape town oct 2014 and atlanta nov 2015 - but will dc black youth be fully linked into it)

UMD English Professor Michael Olmert recreates alumnus and first black ACC football player Darryl Hill in new play Moving the Chains.
By Priya Kumar '09, TERP
Photo by John T. ConsoliWhen Darryl Hill took the football field in 1963 wearing a Terps uniform, he caused a stir before the game even started.
Hill ’65 was known as the Jackie Robinson of Southern college football for his role as the first black football player in the ACC. Emmy award-winning writer and English Professor Michael Olmert ’62, Ph.D. ’80 recreates Hill’s experience in his new play, “Moving the Chains: The Darryl Hill Story.”
“Darryl, he didn’t set out to be a hero of the race problem. He just wanted to be a football player,” Olmert says. Nevertheless, racism propelled Hill to excel on the field and in the classroom.
“Bigotry was my steroids,” reads one of Hill’s lines in the play. “It jacked me up into revenge, got the old juices flowing.”
Olmert, a prolific author of books, plays, films and TV documentaries, set this story on stage instead of in the pages of a book because “a play is a much more intense experience than a nonfiction book.”
Hill attended a table reading of the play in Tawes hall last May. Students questioned him afterward, expressing disbelief at the discrimination he faced. Hotels refused to house the team and he was subjected to death threats and racist taunts.
People are “used to seeing the hoses and demonstrations of the ’60s, but when you switch it over to football, it just doesn’t seem to click in,” Hill says. “I think it’s time that the nation understood that the University of Maryland was on the forefront of integrating sports. The play is as much about me as it is about the [university’s] administration of the time.”
The Lincoln Theatre in Washington, D.C., will hold a staged reading on March 21 as part of its “Backstage at the Lincoln” series. The reading, a cooperation between the Lincoln Theatre and Theatre J, seeks to spur a dialogue about the prejudice blacks and Jews have faced.
“This play is so beautifully written. It’s very poignant,” says Bonnie nelson Schwartz, executive producer of the series. “It has great historical significance, and it’s what this series is all about.”
n mappjng how to value youth and community trust was occasioned by needing to serve in world war 2 as a teenager where he navigated RAF planes out of modern-day Bangladesh. Next, he was just in time to be among last students to study with Keynes at University of Cambridge who revealed the alarming insight that increasingly only economics rules the world - so society needs to choose carefully whether economics powers over you or empowers everyone's lifetime opportunity to make a difference. Norman's maps considered youthful Bangladesh as the most exciting nation of 2010s- passing at 86,; he did not quite get to live his dream to see the BBC and the UK royal family award special pre-Olympics prizes to youth interacting the greatest www game of all: ending poverty!
YOUR FUTURE & ENTREPRENEURIAL REVOLUTION (ER) NETWORKS SINCE 1976Over half a century, we have been living in an extraordinary era where computer power has been doubling every year (Moore’s Law). However the real fun has only just begun as people selectively action learn through networks how to double knowledge serving life critical needs.As one of the world's most optimistic journalists of entrepreneuruial empowerment and mobilising open source movements, my father’s favourite nation for all youth to celebrate with in the 2010s formed its first extraordinary grassroots networking system around 1976. The purpose being to multiply knowledge of every mother around the practice of oral rehydration. As many as one in five infants had been dying of diarrohea until this calling of knowledge-to-action was multiplied through every rural village. Something almost miraculous evolved. Female villagers, in a culture that had dismissed much of the female half of its world as unproductive, became the most economical investors of all time. You can verify how this innovation turned on their community grounded microbanks being designed around the best ever investments in youth and hi-trust's value multiplication.Nothing would have made dad happier than the last news to leak out at his deathbed that a tri-nation collaboration between networking peoples of Bangladesh, China and France was cracking the cheapest product ever designed to ensure that infants weaned from mothers milk to solid foods get enough vitamins for their brains to fully develop. Until this product, those same lives saved by oral rehydration were not guaranteed of full brain development.In economics of networks, and indeed any profession truly intent on helping people map the future, the devil is in the details. My father and I always use one microscopic lens to build up information for everyone with the same vital purpose to linkin round.While it takes some time to communally learn to explore future choices with, we invite you to start mapping now. For example if you want to see better future happenings around your children you analyse the quality and openness of professional advice by starting with how does this sustain as many people’s lifetime maximization of productive knowledge sharing. You do not start by asking how successful are those with the greatest power in the world at extracting from every one else every quarter.
As early as 1962, my father started a diary on how many of the West’s biggest nations had started to lose their microeconomic focus in investing in youth and made what he believed to be the biggest maths errors of all time by rewarding those who used the greatest power to extract the most from everyone else. At stake, as the first generation of humankind goes global is the choice between the famous Big Brother scenario of Orwell or the 1984 future history Norman Macrae published as the first journalist of the internet
Dad was so grateful for Bangladesh to being the antidote to all the biggest mistakes that those who would use macroeconomics to power over people had unwittingly compounded including half-a-century’s over-investment in nuclear and carbon, and an under-investment in solar and photosynthesis.FOOTNOTE ON ENTREPENEURIAL HISTORY : AULD ALLIANCE OF SCOTS & FRENCHSeveral generations of my family as internationalist Scots have helped peoples, organisations and even nations map how to value their future. A focal concern of ours at every audit cycle of system governance and of network navigation is: are you investing or disinvesting in youth’s future?My father died last summer as The Economist’s unacknowledged giant.
Videos by his co-workers describe him as equally modest and tenacious. He did not believe it possible to be both an economic journalisat and a guru. He preferred celebration innovation's next great question rather tnan overr-standardisation of correct answers. The greatest compound risk my dad would caution allcomers on is : any system promoting leaders to behave as being 100% right. Equally nothing made dad feel more respected than being personally thanked by Emperors of Japan for his advice.
We want part of his estate to be used to celebrate the 40th birthday of a young nation. One whose story is remarkable as it started life as poorest in the world but has compounded more trustworthy maps of investing in youth than any other. Moreover it has enjoyed been smartest in connecting the network generation’s optimism and communal links around the empowering idea that if we correctly choose to multiply vital knowledge sharing any heroic goal youth set is achievable. Afore ye go: Bangladesh, with special thanks from we free Scots and microentrepreneurial French youth.…

oblem. Internet linked television channels in sixty-eight countries invited their viewers to participate in a computerised conference about it, in the form of a series of weekly programmes. Recommendations tapped in by viewers were tried out on a computer model of the world economy. If recommendations were shown by the model to be likely to make the world economic situation worse, they were to be discarded. If recommendations were reported by the model to make the economic situation in poor countries better, they were retained for 'ongoing computer analysis' in the next programme.
In 2024 it is easy to see this as a forerunner of the TC conferences which play so large a part in our lives today, both as pastime and principal innovative device in business. But the truth of this 2005 breakthrough tends to irk the highbrow. It succeeded because it was initially a rather downmarket network television programme. About 400 million people watched the first programme, and 3 million individuals or groups tapped in suggestions. Around 99 per cent of these were rejected by the computer as likely to increase the unhappiness of mankind. It became known that the rejects included suggestions submitted by the World Council of Churches and by many other pressure groups. This still left 31,000 suggestions that were accepted by the computer as worthy of ongoing analysis. As these were honed, and details were added to the most interesting, an exciting consensus began to emerge. Later programmes were watched by nearly a billion people as it became recognised that something important was being born.
These audiences were swollen by successful telegimmicks. The presenter of the first part of the first programme was a roly-poly professor who was that year's Nobel laureate in economics, and who proved a natural television personality. He explained that economists now agreed that aid programmes could sometimes help poor countries, but sometimes most definitely made their circumstances worse

..This week we published Social Enterprise UK's letter to the BBC which called for the Beeb to recognise social enterprise in it's programme scheduling, namely through The Apprentice. The 'Social Apprentice' campaign is supported by sector leaders including Big Issue founder John Bird and Divine Chocolate's Sophi Tranchell. It's also been supported by former contestants Tim Campbell and Melody Hossaini – and Melody has written for us explaining why social enterprise should be at the heart of the The Apprentice.
