grameen bank 10 minutes to save youth's world

here is a 10 minute audio script on how grameen bank was built and sustained in Bangladesh over the 25 years corresponding to the last quarter of the 2oth century and the 5th to 30th year of the birth of bangladesh- starting as world's poorest 100 million plus nation

.examples to see why Muhammad Yunus got so excited about what millions of youth are doing with 10 minute training modules


the complete audio is just over 12 and half minutes - it includes a short introduction to what grameen's impact has been on brining mobile solutions to the villages and in turn this has changed the whole debate of how microcredit networks are designed once mobile connectivity is pervasive even in the poorest villages


this is one of the most exciting of the thousand plus living scripts my father at The Economst and I have diarized since dad launched the genere of Entrepreneurial Revolution in 1972 and the search for 30000 replicable microfranchsies that could sustain the net generation in 1984


we would ask you to debate such issues as:

how grameen empowered village  ,others to regenerate communities primarily around non-monetary exchnages - does this make redundant any belief that ending poverty is as simple as income metrics (above 1 or 2 dollars a day) such as millennium goal 1 set?


30 yrears of work around norman macrae shows that a microfranchise -if it is to be replicable - needs to be mapped as a system of flows (its own model of a value exchange)- it cant be administered by setting some global standards- what was the reason why microcreditsummit has spawned 10 or more stabdards groups


what replication learning can be made from grameen bank pre- and post- the coming of mobile web connectivity to the villages; and in Bangladesh versus other countries - we suggest that 4 way hunt is minimal in deciding what aspects of grameen's first 25 years remain pivotal anywhere that pro-youth economics is stidied


we will try and develop the segway into what dr yunus has been revolutioning since he was the first to bring mobile connecdtivity to the vilage - you can help us discss some of his hgreatest partnership innovations at

I would welcome the opportunity to help make a gallery of 10 minute audios on this unprecedented knowhow challenge - here's my attempt on what really mattered  

Friends and I will try to ensure that the 80 plus people who celebrated my dad's remembrance at The Economist boardroom or across hub world or out of the japan embassy in dhaka know that this collaboration competition to truly understand grameen bank for future generations has begun

I have deliberately focused on what I have observed over 10 visits and 7 years that I have never seen taught by us academics

MOOCYUNUS and skoll first 10 year celebration

Open education's greatest opportunities at the moment are built on 10 minute audios; discuss bottom-up system designs using the most unique concepts they webbed together not  global standards that bureaucrats like to govern. The two most successful scalers of open education Koller at and Sal Khan at khanacademy

build everything up from 10 minute modules -the more audio-led the better (as anyone who has studied rooser reeves vampire video effect will know). If you want to help people study this -we have a linked in group here as it was suggested by the wizard youth technologists who attended my dads rembrance party at the japan embassy in dhaka as the hottest thing Norman Macrae Foundation could help celebrate

The ability to plant an audio lab anywhere that passionate practitioners are innovating the most edgy solutions to end poverty or collaborate around other millennium goals has become very low cost - maximum 300 dollars. The wish to virally exchange 10 minute audios that millions of youth can change teh world for the better has never been greater.. If microcredit wants to have an impact on the pro-youth futures of education and economics, it would make sense if all future millennium goal summits included a stream on 10 minute audios

This is why I hope you will search out people who want to contribute to this 10 minute gallery


chris macrae

ps if you wish to rehost 10 minute audios at a space you content edit - any of the audios we feature can be used in that way unless the originator specifically has opted out of such collaboration

background research for 10 minute audio includes

what 10000 youth we sampled dvds to thought of

the 16 decisions chanted 60 times a week by grameen bank managers with the 60 centres they serve

the question that it is natural to ask for a microfranchise - has it already evidentially scaled nationally or regionally anywhere else? - would be the wrong question to ask for grameen as it is clearly one of the world's most visible meta-microfranchises  Grameen Bank has invested in interfacing at least 20 intercommunity solutions that are worth bencharking for practical outreach and many more in the extreme innovation labs that yunus links in around him


as far as we know (please tell us if we are wrong) no nation has scaled exactly the same progression through microfranchises that were most economic and sustainable for grameen's development pathway through Bangladesh but there are many outstanding examples inspired by yunus and grameen that have borrowed on components of what grameen franchises


note for example from the getgo, one of investment grameen members unanimously voted for was sending their children to primary schools- but this relied in part on the good fortune that brac existed to develop what many people believe to be the most miraculous schools to reach rural and poor communities- at least WISE awarded BRAC's founder Sit Fazle Abed its inaugural global education Oscar. For this reason alone a national scaling of grameen's total impact would not have been exactly replicable in any other nation than Bangladesh

how do humans design futures?-in the 2020s decade of the sdgs – this question has never had moore urgency. to be or not t be/ – ref to lessons of deming or keynes, or glasgow university alumni smith and 200 years of hi-trust economics mapmaking later fazle aded - we now know how-a man made system is defined by one goal uniting generations- a system multiplies connected peoples work and demands either accelerating progress to its goal or collapsing - sir fazle abed died dec 2020 - so who are his modt active scholars networks empowering youth with his knohow n- soros with jim kim paul farmer leon botstein and with particular contexts- girls village development and with ba-ki moon global climate adaptability where cop26 november will be a great chance to renuite with 260 years of adam smith and james watts purposes there is no point in connecting with system mentors unless you want to end poverty-specifically we interpret sdg 1 as meaning mext girl or boy born has fair chance at free happy an productive life as we seek to make any community a child is born into a thriving space to grow up between discover of new worlds in 1500 and 1945 systems got worse and worse on the goal eg processes like slavery emerged- and ultimately the world was designed around a handful of big empires and often only the most powerful men in those empires. 4 amazing human-tech systems were invented to start massive use by 1960 borlaug agriculture and related solutions every poorest village (2/3people still had no access to electricity) could action learn person to person- deming engineering whose goal was zero defects by helping workers humanize machines- this could even allowed thousands of small suppliers to be best at one part in machines assembled from all those parts) – although americans invented these solution asia most needed them and joyfully became world class at them- up to 2 billion people were helped to end poverty through sharing this knowhow- unlike consuming up things actionable knowhow multiplies value in use when it links through every community that needs it the other two technologies space and media and satellite telecoms, and digital analytic power looked promising- by 1965 alumni of moore promised to multiply 100 fold efficiency of these core tech each decade to 2030- that would be a trillion tmes moore than was needed to land on the moon in 1960s. you might think this tech could improve race to end poverty- and initially it did but by 1990 it was designed around the long term goal of making 10 men richer than 40% poorest- these men also got involved in complex vested interests so that the vast majority of politicians in brussels and dc backed the big get bigger - often they used fake media to hide what they were doing to climate and other stuff that a world trebling in population size d\from 1945 to 2030 also needed to map. so the good and bad news is we the people need to reapply all techs where they are only serving rich men and politicians od every party who have taken us to the brink of ending our species- these are the most exciting times to be alive - we the 3 generations children parents grandparents have until 2030 to design new system orbits gravitated around goal 1 and navigating the un's other 17 goals do you want to help/ 8 cities we spend most time helping students exchange sustainability solutions 2018-2019 BR0 Beijing Hangzhou: BR6 Geneva, Luxembourg, BR2 Dhaka, Delhi, BR1 Tokyo, Seoul
