MOOC youth economics and net generation jobs - 41st year of research


Are you interested in the curriculum of investing in worldwide youth collaborating round 10 times more productivity and sustainability than ever before?


Back in 1843, The Economist had been founded with the aim of mediating Britain's lead of the industrial revolution from top-down slavemaking Empire to epicentre of Commonwealth. By 1972, arguably the biggest agenda confronted by our species was coing into view:  the Post-industrial revolution would offer 2 opposite ways of desiging the future- but with a critical difference to humanity's previous decision trees. Historically civilisation declined and fell separately; once our species became intimately interconnected it is logical to anticipate that all our childrens futures will rise or fall together.

System Choice: Big Gets Bigger Versus Micro Gets More Openly Entrepreneurial

The top-down, boxed-in ruling world would pied piper the first net generation towards Big Brother; the bottom-up open systems way ahead would amongst other goodwill dynamics value little sisters rights to be.


After seeing 500 youth sharing knowledge around a digital network in 1972, it took Norman Macrae 10 years 1972-1982 to outline this open systems curriculum, which was published as a concise future history in English in 1984 (other languages later years). The book maps an alternative future for gravitating the world round that Orwell's Big Brother endgame.


Norman's teenage years had been personally influenced by Hitler and Stalin- so he wasn't disagreeing that Orwell's future was a likely outcome of the emerging net generation of worldwide peoples becoming more connected than separated. Logic suggested a choice -at an exponentially accelerating rate, our species would reach a sustainability crossroads. Forewarned was forearmed- that's why Norman hosted Entrepreneurial Revolution dialogues out of The Economist from 1972. That's how the first book on the net generation was written by a pro-youth economist and joyous cross-cultural explorer.


Here is what Baron Joseph Grimmond said in 1984: I am more than willing to accept that were we to use science along the lines Norman Macrae suggests, we could transform the world. A quarter of a century later, The Economist's long-time science editor Viscount Matt Ridley in 2010 wrote this about the Magum Opus of Norman's life as The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant.

Chris Macrae: Those who read dad's 1984 text  -mapping the net generation's 3 billion jobs - will see that Youth Economics converged 7 sub-curriculum - we would love to know where the most trusted updating MOOCs are on each.. Each curriculum involves freeing the purpose of a market mapped as a system that multiplies the most possible value across generations

7 purpose of economics in ruling a borderless world where peoples, professions and borderless public servants need to value compounding the next generation's human lot let alone doing no current evil

6 purpose of healthcare

5 purpose of education and intelligent forms of media and open tech

4 purpose of banking

3 purpose of aid and foundations to be designed -and celebrated joyfully- around goals for a new millennium . That includes investing in youth to co-produce the goals that were not possible before digital networking's death of distance

2 purpose of clean energy - both for machines and food and water that energises humans

1 purpose of peace spreading happiness and safety through communities all over our world


We are behind Norman's exponential deadlines on starting in the most purposeful direction in all 7 of these deep human practices and integral value exchanges. So as well as searching for transparent curriculum so youth can enjoy living these purposes, we need to value what last change gamechanger sall of us alive in the 2010s can find -and collaborate around - to get back on track. Some leaders that encourage us are at http://wholeplanet.tv  but we'd love to hear who empowers you and yours on which combinations of these 7 curriculum vitae


MATT RIDLEY When I joined the Economist in 1983, Norman Macrae was the deputy editor. He died last week at the age of 86. Soon after I joined the staff, a thing called a computer terminal appeared on my desk and my electric typewriter disappeared. Around that time, Norman wrote a long article that became a book about the future. It was one of the strangest things I had ever read.

It had boundless optimism --


Over the last decade, I have written many articles in The Economist and delivered lectures in nearly 30 countries across the world saying the future should be much more rosy. This book explores the lovely future people could have if only all democrats made the right decisions.

combined with a weird technological vision --

Eventually books, files, television programmes, computer information and telecommunications will merge. We'll have this portable object which is a television screen with first a typewriter, later a voice activator attached. Afterwards it will be minaturised so that your personal access instrument can be carried in your buttonhole, but there will be these cheap terminals around everywhere, more widely than telephones of 1984. The terminals will be used to access databases anywhere in the globe, and will become the brainworker's mobile place of work.

Brainworkers, which will increasingly mean all workers, will be able to live in Tahiti if they want to and telecommute daily to the New York or Tokyo or Hamburg office through which they work. In the satellite age costs of transmission will not depend mainly on distance. And knowledge once digitalised can be replicated for use anywhere almost instantly.

and a startlingly fresh economic perspective --

In the 1890s around half of the workforce in countries like the United States were in three occupations: agriculture, domestic service and jobs to do with horse transport. By the 1970s these three were down to 4 per cent of the workforce. If this had been foretold in the 1890s, there would have been a wail. It would have been said that half the population was fit only to be farmworkers, parlourmaids and sweepers-up of horse manure. Where would this half find jobs? The answer was by the 1970s the majority of them were much more fully employed ( because more married women joined the workforce) doing jobs that would have sounded double-Dutch in the 1890s: extracting oil instead of fish out of the North Sea; working as computer programmers, or as television engineers, or as package-holiday tour operators chartering jet aircraft.

When he retired in 1988 he wrote

Some will say [I have] been too optimistic. That is what a 65-year-old like me finds it natural to be. When I joined The Economist in 1949 it seemed unlikely that the world would last long. But here we stand, 40 memory-sodden years on, and what have we done? What we have done - largely because the poorest two-thirds of people are living much longer - is approximately to octuple real gross world product. During the brief civilian working lives of us returning soldiers from the second world war, we have added seven times as much to the world's producing power as was added during all the previous millennia of homo sapien's existence. That may help to explain why some of us sound and write rather tired. It does not explain why anybody in the next generation, to whom we gladly vacate our posts, can dare to sound pessimistic.

He was a rational optimist.

Whither the future of economics? and youth?
From 1972 The Economist's leadership dialogues with the future started up by coining the genre Entrepreneurial Revolution from which virtually all adjectival types of changemaking Entrepreneur are descended. Together we wrote the 1984 alternative future history to Orwell's Big Brother endgame https://normanmacrae.ning.com/forum/topics/mooc-youth-economics-and...

My family's understanding of systems -from Keynes, Einstein and Von Neumann amongst other numerate people, and my grandfather's 25 years of work with Gandhi to mention but one social leader - is that only one of 2 opposite consequences will spin from being the first borderless interconnected generation

For us: if the internet was seen as just a sub-branch of mass media and advertising world then Orwell's command and control endgame will be where PR, politicians and professionals will pied piper us all for all future time. However if the internet is integrated as the greatest economic multiplier education has ever explored then the 21st century can be the happiest, freest, most productive and sustainable time to be alive.
