mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you are concerned to be introduced into any of these conversations
topic 1 world's most trusted job creating educators and bankers
note on africa's blecher and Imunro- and women empowerment tech nailaC
dear I & N -urgent i believe that I introduce you- started up africa's greatest youth microcredit in 1999- her love of orphans made JB"s happy families her retirement project; JB united youth gangs oit just mothers circles; it was also the first electroniic operated-transactions microcredit; it also had a simple idea- show you can earn something and we will offer loan to double that; N's grassroots work more than anyone connected village ladies training with mobile phones; she also runs her own telecentre business for abused women; she finally left dhaks 2 years ago for family reasons; she is signing womens empowerment projects across africa; in kenya she knows the networks behind the technology of mpesa and nanocredit; in south africa I have introduced her to taddy blecher who is introducing youth entrepreneur curricula to 14 million school children a year -whence 1 million jobs will be created in next 5 years- a model any major african capital could twin with if it is prepared ti change its schools; if you read quadirs mit journal innovations vol 6 issue 4 - you will see that kenya's banking regulations that I helped shaped have inspired a network of 100+ national regulators to debate the future of cashless banking which is as much a regulatory issue as an open tech issue- this is where sir fazle and the quadirs experiment with bkash.com may yet determine where bangladesh's youth futures spin
Topic 2 where can youth assemble massive green transforming curricula and collaboration movements 2014-2015
About 12 years ago while volunteering at www.simpol.org and being delegated to attend a year of londons make poverty history ngo summits which for most of my friends collapsed through top-down carelessness at 7/7,
Brazil brilliantly developed a curriculum of bon aqua for hundreds of teachers and well over 100000 under 11s living in the water basins of foz (the world's largest dam intersect 3 nations but on the brazilian side its waterbasins are designed around a living lab of ecoprojects)
- this was just one project which resulted from brazil's catholic churches getting a year of water to be proclaimed - which involved thousands of parishes circulating leaflets on why brazilans should not let their water resources be bought up by foreign multinationals- quite literally commercial tv takes over 99.9% of brazilian airtime- so catholic parishes were the biggest freedom of speech channel left
we -ideally you all in s. america as you are the most lively youth catholic networks) really need to find out who in catholic churches is seriously connecting the new popes recommendation of a wholly new curriculum of public service -and work out how to collaborate with such sustainable community leaders- i interpreted a speech of lech walesa to say that is his number 1 recommendation -anyhow he was absolutely clear that the people of poland would have stood up and freed themselves with out the worldwide support of the then pope john paul
the meta-netaworker of brazils conscious citizens of water was franklin but I dont know if his email remains active -if it is a live email. he probably has catalogue of which green projects are scaling with educators where
brazils success with social networking also caused the then new president bula to travel overnight from porto alegre to davos between world social and world economic forum - without which schwab at world economic forum would never have become interested in social entrepreenurs nor youth
all this is to say while such scale may sound crazy to some, I for one would rather the youth summit -Road to Cape Town and Atlanta and any partnering youth summits - spirit is anything that isnt designed to try to connect such scale is already to late to save youth's most urgent problems- so as to fly on the open education bandwagon we need khan academy type production facilities all over atlanta in nov 2015 - even if we only get a few 9 minute youth audios that khan wants to syndicate to millions that will change the world; which is also to say you have 21 months to prepare the best under 9 minute action training on acrediting zero plastic footprint- no harm to start such competitions anywhere you can
of course there can be other segments of supporters of youth summits, but anyhow keep on scaling clara -and as some of us heard on 30 december south africa's blecher parthers believes full youth employment will take nothing less than a 14 million child curriculum every yera k to 12 on youth entrepreneurship
and of course I still dont know why the above challenge shouldnt be of interest to the club of rome- but as we have already concluded I do not how to tread such hallowed doors
ps sabine still has 12 min film of yunus at his most eloquent in asking green londoners in feb 2008 to unite around him before bangladesh is the first 100 million nation to get meta-flooded
topic 3 south africa 1968 to 2014 -the land where education is changing around youth job creation
Breaking News 2014 - Mandela Student Essay Competition- Thanks To Taddy Blecher- South Africa's Joburg Number 1 Twin City of Job Creating Education curriculum; South Africa's Cape Town Oct 2014 (will Soros join in 36 years after his transformation as world leading philanthropic youth economist began with cape Town Youth Jobs programs). Cape Town is last stop on way to Atlanta staging greatest event ever for future of youth -more searches for youth good news and action networks round Africa
back to The Economist's 1968 survey of south africa
Topic 4 to come the greatest Ilab format ever for youth to innovate microfanchises
topic 4 - purpose of media and youth's purpose of education
mathematically it is quite simple to design an audit that is perfect for destroying the sustainability of youth's future freedoms of purpose; what you do is measure success as the most powerful side in a value exchange taking from every other side every auditing period- (that is what the big 5 global accounting profession programme into spreadsheeting when they only audit that and have not counterbalancing valuation of goodwill) -this is also the prefect maths for compounding unseen risk, bubbling up systems so that they then collapse or are too big to fail, making the most unsustainable locations to be at boundaries between separated systems "professionals" (this is extremely unwise if our generation's main innovation is hyperconnectedness of a borderless world)
once you have faced the perfect maths for exponentially destroying youth's futures, it is simple to design the exact opposite system audit - that is something those who know of dr yunus' work now call his 100% social business model- its the perfect model for visioning the greatest dreams youth could purposefulyl unite round
in trying to transform from a world where top-down biggest systems rule with the least sustainable system design to a better world, we would recommend mediation - in other words it is logical to expect in between models might compound practical opportunity races while preventing risks- one such model we call social business 51% model; instead of all ownership of the system being governed by those in greatest need of its solution purpose, 51% or more could be sustained around that majority voice
take the case of the next youth technology wizard who designs a platform that the majority of youth communicate through; if she or he systemised 51% of ownership from the getgo to be in trust of interact youth's greatest collaboration dreams for the 21st century - she or he would retain 49% of ownership of resources needed in the battle that should be expected from those platforms that are already there and which are not so pro-youth; moreover as founder she or he would only be giiving away one doubling of value; and if she or he has anchored the system in compounding the most valuable futures all youth would vote for then the system will soon grow way beyond the value that investing that first doubling involved
this is only one way of looking at the maps of what system models to use to value sustainability of business and society's most purposeful goals- another valid argument is that a region should form an association of most trusted industry leaders - those who want to make the place self-sufficient or secure through having enough talents and peoples livelihoods to not become dependent on some external region's commands -if these hi-trust leaders representing a region or nation are transparently celebrated by everyone then the issue of exactly which model to use for each industry leaders system design becomes secondary; what comes first is that the peoples are represented by topic 5 hi-trust practical leaders- and that these people's knowhow are designed into apprenticeships and indeed every sort of entrepreneurial literacy children could be questioning through action learning curricula not over-examined ones that assume there is only one perfectly correct answer; we are living in a time when greatest innovation is not only possible but essential for 7 billion peoples' optimal livelihoods; innovating means a world where demanding something is set in stone as even 99% correct is the worst possible educational mindset
topic 6 -open education's most valuable focus?
Several people have mentioned roles in empowering youth to realise their future dreams and livelihoods -eg Jennifer in London. So I just wanted to mention a happening that starts at the end of this week - the first MOOC to be taught around a curriculum never taught before -it claims to have emerged from last september's social good summit in new york http://coursera.org/course/changetheworld - it may also act as a rehearsal for this summers NY youth summit being staged by the UN envoy for youth and the world bank's Jim Kim whose joyful spirit as President of Dartmouth helped viralise Ganjan Style celebrations
The segment of open education that most interests my friends involves leaders who connect missing sustainability curricula which can free the net generation's most heroic collaborations. Where do you all find that ? In my last 7 years of searching I would vote for dr yunus and sir fazle abed and taddy blecher as the 3 educators, whose life knowhow is not yet openly accessible as curriculum, but who activate youth capitalism's most human purposes and urgent value multiplying potential
I work on the open education curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution (ER) that my father http://normanmacrae.ning.com started over 40 years ago at The Economist. Its aim is to make the net generation the most productive, collaborative and sustainable time for worldwide youth's livelihoods. If we need to change how economists value compound systems so as to free net generation then amen.
I have 2 topmost collaboration deadlines in everything I try to map:
Nov 2015 http://youthcreativelab.blogspot.com when Atlanta . together with peace world's most trusted laureates of every culture and media goal, aims to make youth job creation summits more joyfully impactful for net generarion than sporting olympics. To do this Atlanta's most trusted and resourced leaders will invite twin capitals of million job creation to linkin
Sept 2018 The 175th anniversary of The Economist being founded to mediate an end to hunger and capital abuse of youth. By that time I aim to have emerged the most trusted open educational partners around freeing youth capitalsm and ER's curriculum
My next collaboration wish is 30 january. This will be the second year that I have helped the University of DC connect a term of youth entrepreneur events culminating in a student competition which invites 20 colleges across states neighbouring Washington DC. We believe that one day a year the whole of DC could gain from attending to youth's greatest pitches to create jobs and develop communities or scale worldwide open education solutions. Are any of your networks interested in live interaction with us or replicating something similar locally. For example on 30 January we are inviting "King" the Chapter Leader of Conscious Capitalism DC to clarify what student actions CCDC loves to help connect - both generally and among black Diaspora networks. A question to parent:s and teachers: what do we need to do so that the legacy of love of humanity of Nelson Mandela lives on in all of our children
this is part of a city by city shared contacts format we are trying yo develop with the goal of linking in a correspondent netiork ariound citizens who want twin their capitals as top 30 youth job creating capitals
the mail below is one of the most important professional topics in the world from m viewpoint - but finding people who want to discuss from a mathematical viewpoint and not from a defensive viewpoint their own profession requires has proved very difficult over the 25 years I have collected clues on thus crisis which at end of 1999 I paid a journalist to write a book on as world's greatest maths error- unfortunately he went over the publishers time limit and never completed
40 years of The Economist questioning whether the web can be a smarter age for youth than tv advertising is coming to a peak crisis worsened by profesissionals who externalise every valuation metric
Thanks Leif - Human Web Impact Valuation Crisis I would love to find a way to list what we all agree we have learnt about intangibles, purposeful goodwill modeling and exponential sustainability of investments round transparent multi-win models (as well as what are still questionmarks) I wonder if you and Kim have perspectives of how to add in eg Nordica, Germany, France or Japan. Through Kim's connections my one inspirational new find in impacting system change in valuation modelings is the founder of Akira in Japan
OPEN YOUTH MOVEMENTS
We have the double opportunity over the next 21 months to converge both the systemic valuation crisis and youth's greatest community projects in these practice areas through youth summits culminating on Atlanta's goal to show that a youth jobs creating economics expo can have even more impact for the futures of youth than staging an olympics. This will only happen in my mind if all capitals who want to twin with youth job creation feel simultaneously connected - virtually and for real- with Atlanta http://youthcreativelab.blogspot.com
Yusi and Fiona staged the 5th and most recent pan-state youth competition on what entrepreneurial ideas do Muhammad Yunus future dreams inspire in youth.Here are the top 16 winning videos
This entrepreneur competition involved over 50 virtual judges from around the world's capitals - showing that the judging, mentoring and investment networks of youth entrepreneur competitions need continuously connecting as do the student permissions. In addition David Ives was both a judge at New Hampshire and has the most knowledge and permission of any American to connect the youth agenda that have now emerged from 15 Nobel Peace laureate Summits

LONGER REVIEW FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN INTANGIBLES MISVALUATION AS WORLDS BIGGEST MATHS ERROR
Back in the USA : Unseen Wealth's Margaret Blair is someone I interviewed while she was presenting the book . Sadly the incoming Bush Texas administration in 2001 reacted incredibly badly to the news that auditing systems were compounding risk (and may additionally have seen this as part of the Gore mindset though I found Blair's work mathematically pure not political). In any event all funding of this type of work was banned in DC and Blair moved from Georgetown University to Tennessee. When this happened Blair told me that the only open society space left was Brussels Prism project. That's actually why I acted as a volunteer moderator at knowledgeboard. But within 3 years Prism was closed down. Ronald McKay whose job it was in The EU to allocate Prism funds had a final meeting with me- "Chris politicians believe that the public have no interest in intangibles missing valuation. It will take 3 European Enrons in the same year before they review this". Of course with the banking collapse we have now suffered much more than 3 Enron collapses but compared with the open systems transformation potential that prism and knowledgeboard had at their peak we are further away than ever in redesigning the missing link between unseen wealth and a post-industrial world that frees youth livelihoods . We are still systemising/auditing the sectors with the most community impact - health, education, energy, banking, anti-social media - in ways designed around 1% biggest and speculators and in the West destroying youth's futures through with unlimited social debts of past generations drowning our children
So now can be an unique opportunity to linikin the personal networks to connect capitals with youth futures over the next 21 months through Atlanta in a way that grows positive connections between all youth capitals that participate. We need such regions as Nordica, German influence in EU and Japna to see Atlanta as being as much about their youths futures as Black Americans - the core youth network we know we have mass momentum with. And we need Kims down under capitals with a youth future to feel joint ownership too
Love to hear of ideas on how to forwards this massive youth connective and collaboration search for exponentially sustain multi-win model valuation
OPEN EDU ONE LAST CHANCE TO RECOVER NET GENERATION?
Timingwise the change-world lever that interests me most is for 20 years now I have been personally told that what you say may be logical but nobody has any chance of getting funds to research it - eg by harvard professors when I presented my view of brand valuation and a triple issue of journal of marketing management that I guest edited on 20th century biggest media errors- there in late 1990s. Open Education platforms like khan academy's greatest opportunity is to links youth to testing missing curricula in pieces they can build into bottom-up wholes.This isnt what 95% of professors think MOOCs are about but fortunately eg Branson, Blecher and Google out of S Afrrica are redesigning a complete curriculum of entrepreneurship from 7 up with the agreement from government that this must be scaled to reach 14 million youth annually within 5 years.
LAST CALL: So knowing this possibility, how can we find the educators who want youth to have access to the missing jobs creating curricula?
In Western hemispheres, it is probable be that every greatest opportunity of the net generation being youth's most productive time will depend on this quest.. Naila knows how to whisper this story through very influential womens networks as she was dr yunus original trainer of village womens use of mobile telecoms from 1996 - where is open technology connecting bottom-up and collaborative networks instead of replacing jobs the way DC and Brussels has used tech to power over instead of empower. And can the system design that Berners Lee opened up make a whole truth comeback?. IF Atlanta has to destroy the advertising age of Coke imaging over youth with I have a dream of singing in perfect harmony with the new age of promoting I help youth realise job-creating dreams then lets do it before the yes we can generation is as extinct as the dodo.

3) If I can't get to New York myself , can I ask my associate and chartered accountant, whom I have known personally for 7 years, to attend. He was my fathers correspondent in New York for a 1000 book club of Dr Yunus -Social Business; The Future of Capitalism- which the NY publisher Public Affairs kindly sent us a review copy of SBFOC in Q4 2007. We both have over 25 years of experience of mathematics of trust-flow that started at Coopers and Lybrand before it raced to be one of the BIG 5 (Price Waterhouse Coopers) as its Big 5 name was known.
4) My father's foundation is sponsoring several "readers groups" with business students as part of the youth summit process of Atlanta NOV2015 in which 15 Nobel laureates led by Yunus (with a new 501 foundation) and youth will pitch future capitalism "solution franchises" to each other, and develop learning modules in KhanAcademy style formats. Is your document something I can circulate to such youth? Among Youth Summits along the Road to Atlanta: one that most impacts US youth is due to be hosted this summer in New York with the blessing of Jim Kim at the World Bank and the Youth Open Technology Envoy at the UN.
(Father Norman Macrae developed the genre Entrepreneurial Revolution in The Economist from 1976 to question whether the coming net generation could design an alternative system endgame to Orwell's Big Brother -he was delighted that Dr Yunus and his publisher could be chief guests at his 85th and last public birthday party in London St James). Father's last article appeared in a co-publication or Dr Yunus motivated by a talk he was giving to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Adam Smith's theory of moral sentiments in Glasgow. Father's interest in moral theories was stimulated as the son of a British consular who worked in Stalin's Moscow and parts of Europe to be overrun by Hitler, by spending his last days as a teenager navigating RAF planes in world war 2 over out of modern day Bangladesh, and surviving the war to be mentored by Keynes on his theory of how economists bear most systemic responsibility for compounding what futures are children get.
Norman was one of the first to second Dr Yunus's beautiful dream that Cox's Bazaar be redeveloped as a 21st C Singapore and triad trading gateway to Bangladesh, India and China. (ask for copy of Yunus leaflet on Bangla growing up with Asian Giants if you like such concepts) Given the political crisis in Bangladesh/Arab Hemisphere of 2014, I no longer know where Cox's Bazaar concept debates are safe to host -way above my global village conflict resolution paygrade so to speak. http://twitter.com/globalgrameen
Kate I had a look at the wisdom conference -some fascinating speakers. It also gives me an idea of a few more people on email I connect with that may have some common interests- process is a bit hit and miss - tell me if you'd like me to go ahead
I guess what I am most interested in is how to completely transform industries that have lost their purpose in terms of creating jobs and futures youth /next generations need
There are several elements to youth relationships I wish to massively pattern around purposes of markets whose biggest global players are currently the opposite of sustainable or responsible
mathematically from having worked in big5 accountant through 1990s I feel my books and some unpublished valuation algorithms can demonstrate how the maths of goodwill is completely wrong compounding loss of purpose, destroying jobs, multiplying risks at boundaries of what needed to be a win-win partnering world
and it prevents innovating above zero sum models - I guess the above particularly connects 2 of the conscious capitalism quadrants of purpose and modeling transparency though values and drama of leadership have also always been inseparable too (its just at a coaching or facilitation level I find other team partners when that's the core of the project)
I have worked specifically on whats wrong with brand valuation and intangibles for 20 years now (knowing murphy (founder of interbrand) when we were almost in next door offices in london who literally invented an algorithm for brand valuation that ad agencies liked but those like me who believe corporate brands connect what purpose an organisation lives and learns with exactly the worst way of valuing brands
where i first met jack was in late 1990s i hosted pan europe get-together twice a year of media experts who believed we could do a lot more good with media- jack was the sort of southern hemisphere connector of that and we had some quite high powered retreats; I also guest edited a triple issue of journal of marketing management on errors the ad age had made; when I presented it at harvard I was told: chris you may be right but we'd never get any funding to research that - I now have a long list of valuation and media subjects that funders of us academia have literally banned especially during the Bush years- the good news of that is there are also sorts of missing curricula to liberate youth around
which loosely connects with another side of my passion for system mapping albeit a more amateur one- dad and I first saw students testing early digital learning networks in 1972- dad converted his expertise as economics editor of The Economist into future histories of "Next Capitalism" and "Entrepreneurial Revolution" whose 1976 survey inspired Drayton to coin the term social entrepreneur - Dad's logic was much nearer Gifford Pinchot's intrapreneur as dad had been mentored by Keynes that ultimately economist (compound systemic) design of what futures youth are free to build; by 1984 we scripted a future of what would need to go right by when i...- and we particularly detailed ideas on how digital media would need to open up smart education in every way that ad media had dumber down
with moocs and khan academy I see the next 2 years as the biggest urgent opportunity for youth summits (citizen chapters like CC where my friend King in DC is particularly well related to what all African Diaspora networks want to change both inside usa and across many whole trade markets with africa- our next 2 years of youth summits connect with alumni of mandela in Cape Town and alum... giving the DC chapter of CC quoite an edge , and some forms of ILABs/hubs) to strike back with all sorts of job creating edu curriculum which can be 10 times less costly for youth to build with- by accident the one person who has worked continuously on our 1984 dream of what education be in creating an entrepreneurial revolution for the net generation could be is the octagenarian new zealand gordon dryden - his work (i think is marvellous) www.thelearningweb.net
if you would like me to senda an email between gordon and you please say
