Walter Bagehot..


 if you have time to read it i am sure it poses many questions for investigative journalism on who's who -with europes and world financial systems at a tipping point -predicted 40 years ago in the economist survey of the next 40 years - who has the time to dare to value empowering youth's working lives with million times more collaboration - clearly this is the exact opposite of the conversation going on all across europes political corridors of power - unlike japan, gernany (its constitutions if not its people) hasn't cross-culturally learnt anything over last three quarters of a century pro-youth about sustainably leading a continent towards post-industrial economics

A different way to connect 10000 youth -dedicated to way james wilson mediated entrepreneurs and royalty from 1843

To maximise their collaborative productivities in clusters where hi-trust leaders/partnerships are looking after investing patiently in their collaborations with transparent multi-win models

Friends and I have researched most of yunus international youth movements since 2005 and have concluded that accidentally powerbrokers (identify any top 10 people who have most power in representing yunus) are recruiting youth but not to maximise those youth's own productivities and dreams where those youth in wealthier places who can action the most sustainable inpact. What yunus was able to do so brilliantly back in bangladeshhasn't been extended to how investment in youth using today's million times more collaboration technology out of every community could lead to 10 times more productivity and sustainable growth of every economy. If you want to know why you have to collect the stories of all the people who brought grameenphone to bangladeshvillages from 1996. Yunus has accidentally become the least connected of those who have the most resources from developing mobile. Conversely if you interview yunus 20 times you will undoubtedly get to hear of 50 more exciting concepts for youth projecst than any one person will ever tell you about but few if any of these projects actually have an investment structure and worldwide media of their own in place. You cant intergate a top 50 www youth economy without its own virtually free media. Sir Tom Hunter (the scot who originally funded clinton global) was right in demanding different capitals take responsibility for one or two of these projects each but just as he was helping glasgow choose its projects (eg end nurseless villages) he went from being uk's richest entrepreneur to one with least cashflow. Anyone who attended yunus 70th birthday wish weekend in glasgow summer 2010 that my faimly mainly sponsored surely saw this

where 6 generations of my family came from

  • actioning the purpose of economics and mediation as investing in next generation's productivity out of every community; finding ways to diarise the most local cross-cultural viewpoints and urgent systemic needs
  • for example my maternal granddad spent 25 years with gandhi mediating india's independence and my paternal granddad grew up as a spy of what was going most wrong in russia and germanybetween 1914-1945. My father had an itinerant childhood following grandads placements at different british consulars; he spent his last days as a teenager navigating air planes over modern day bangladesh and myanmar; he then was one of last to be mentored by keynes on the hippocratic oath economists need to exercise as the most connected discipline that rules the world

some incidents to reort from my own life

1973 postgraduated from cambridge as a statistician- first project what was action learning value of youth being networks- 3 years of experiements of uk national dev project in computer assisted learminli led to my dads's entreprenurial revolution trilogy in the economist 1976 and 1984 and our 1984 book mapping what can happen tio internet generation if every great chnage is empowered bottom-up and collaboratively; spent 1980s with a french company using mit database to co;lect world's most extensive information of what societies wanted from worlds biggest brands and most resourced decsiion-makers; 90s worked at world's largest ad agency and consulted to many of big 5 accounting firms on what they were wrongly valuing in terms of integrity of youth's futures and how they were failing to help clients understand partnership invitations around millennium goal visions as the most political processes on earth

2001 both 9/11 and debriefing of 10 years of research on every way global professions had wrong valuation metrics for multi-win models -errors include value multipliers of trust/goodwill, valuing transpaarency,valuing intergenerational sustainability using exponentials impact metrics

2001-2005 united with gandhian, conflict resolution, medical networks (eg GRN london03 delhi 04 sarajevo 05 ...) and found they could only empower youth when they found bottom-up ngos; when my main mentor died in 7/7 hosted event at islington hub - only come if you have one sustainability crises issue that you will share all your best networking contacts on

people in london may think they have a mission similar to my own but whilst there are 4 people I still want to know better in terms of do they have enough resources to activate a cluster of youth i havent found anyone whose help has been consitsncy for youth10000

they would need to compare their actions openly with leaders who norman macrae remembrance parties have been the opportunity to search out and celebrate

eg the japanese cluster (asia pacific would nOT be the most exciting net generation rghion if it hadnt been for japan's win-win-win economiccs with youth during 3rd quarter of 20th c - it based world trade on winwins and peaceful sectors unlike the sectoirs that sponsred george bush's first decade of 21st c) , the south african cluster, the inside bangladesh at 41cluster where I am confident they will select 500 youth clubs who can build the collaboration economy are being mapped

of the 4 londoners i cant get to - arguably moibrahim is the one who might most like to know about the global summit

he made his money will cellphone in africa so knows what mobiles can do; his philanthropy strtaegy is to hunt 40 place leaders to trust africa's develpoment , while a parralel satellite tv station for africa is hunting out 40 industry sector leaders -what the bbc's world service could have been if murdoch hadnt been alowed to bully everyone around the bbc since 1993 as part of his deal with china to be alowed tp do satellite tv sports there

my 9/11 partner networks began with medical and youth supporter paul komesaroff in australia- he introduced me to gandhian ganesh devy and mojtaba sadria whose life has been spent in china, japan and iran; when he came to help unite yunus london networks in 2008 nobody truly partnered with him so he has gone back to iran; the stateslady who most bridges paul's views, mo's views and my dad's views is mary robinson

if people doing stuff out of britain/europe want to know more about youth 10000 i suggest they talk to mostofa and zasheem as alternatives to me

if they want to see more information i put it up messily at (use skype to ask for a guided tour) at  if you have questions about how my family's youth and sustainble economics searches connects with the before and after process of the global summit celebrating what london can do beyond the olympics this summer please make the questions as detailed as possiblechris macrae 1 301 881 1655 skype chrismacraedc facebook linkedin twitter ................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Dear Iqbal

2010s action nets of The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant

I intended The Economist's 1943 centenary bio as a present. It helps map where entrepreneurial economics originated its alumni and leadership. It reveals that historically The Economist was a social action medium designed to question how to entrepreneurially end hunger and champion all youth's productivity, especially youth from poor families.

The Economist founder James Wilson had come down from Scotland and become a Member of Parliament determined to sack those representing vested interests and empiredom. He started The Economist to mediate such public demand. 17 years later, he died of diarrhea in Calcutta trying with his bank (standard chartered - queen victoria's charter to James 1853 ) to reform Raj Economics but his son in law walter bagehot helped royalty to continue revisioning its commonwelath role more peacefully than the french solution to cut off heads of those who monoplised productive assets (where the french meaning of entrepreneur's "between take" originates). Let's hope that yesterday Libya took the best of the french way, but that we can still use the scottish mediation way to liberate bangladesh and others at Arab Spring's crossroads.

As for how we liberate wall street and europe's unemployed youth I tend to think university leaders bear more responsibility on that than they yet know  (except at HEC which Danone's Emmanuel Faber has been working a few decades to help reform). Sam's transition from microcreditsummits to civil society networks is interesting especially if the royal fiamilies who have backed microcredit now turn to question the commons of media and education preferably before London Olympics. Atlanta is an interesting nexus- as centre of 45 georgian colleges brainstorming job creation and the home of the global brand (Coca-Cola) that took the economics of image and sports  too far in wrong direction, but also where Branson emerged his womens school of entreprenurship from and the home of the carpet manufacturer that declared any industry can profitably go zero-carbon if it values this an inter-generational goal.

My dad continiued James Wilson ideology up to The Economist's 145 year in 1988 when he retired mainly to write biography of Von Neuman for Sloan Foundation

Dismally Harvard wrote a 150th year review of The Economist which used top-down erroneous lens destroying all the original microeconomics views of The Economist- perhaps if MIT had done the 150th instead ... 

Norman Macrae Family Founbation wishes to map whose networks most openly connect ending poverty with mobiles. I believe you and Kazi Huque (who I have been chatting to for several years but only met on Monday for first time) need to choose who leads that through 2010s. I would be interested who else you would add to that list - at boston will berners lee and negropronte help?; across china is Jack Ma workable with?  which of those (Ibrahim, Slim etc) who have become worlds richest by setting up mobile phones industry will mobilise their money/legacy the bottom up way (in which telecentres are open and owned by villages) not gates' top down

cheers chris macrae

Further Collaboration Networks Background:

Actually while my father  was a diarist and systemic modeller of future conflicts and opportunities not an action maker - he dreamed back in a 1984 book why the net generation should unite around millennium goal of ending poverty and how internet and mobiles would be integral in vilages to end poverty and understand the most valuable purposes og each life critical market.  He first saw a working internet in 1973 as it was an elearning experiment I was  a junior contributor to as a UK National development project.The Economist's science editor Matt Ridley wrote clearest obit of why my father saw yje elders and youth of the net generation as having defining responsibility for compounding human sustainability as we integrate local and global in 40 short years 

Dad was happy in his last year to forecast that the openness of world trade around bangladesh's grassroots netwporks was as vital to 2010s as trading with Japan in early 1960s (consider Japan in 1962 being the survey that liberated father to survey almost any future he chose over next 25 years from his viewpoint of what economic maps invests in next generations productivity). At his remembrance party 50 people at The Economist boardroom were surprised to see launch of Consider bangaldesh

I believe that if we start with the right people it is possible to form a club of 100 leaders who want to see 2010s being youths most productive deacde and getting each leader to voice one or two favourite projects and then play a game of snap as who needs who most amongst the 100 and how can networks like your legatum alumni help

If the human race is to navigate transformational maps of the global village economy with youthful joy and entrepreneurial freedom of productivity then we need to know if your capital city has a village like Saint James in
LondonSaint James is dedicated to ending empire: ending everything that spins viciously when people are ruled by top-down vested interests instead of bottom-up community family-context investing culture. Here is how Saint James became London's village for ending empire. Geographically it interfaces the palace village of london, the .gov village of london, and the BBC world service village though the latter often forgets its unique responsibility in questioning what media rules the world. Testimony 1 on BBC. Web 1 of future of beeb.Saint James was the "village" adjacent to that of which English colonizisation and empire began - so its job was to be the village which the countries colonised inside the so-called United Kindgom mediated the end of empire. Here is just part of the timeline: dates are not necessarily correct beyond 3rd decimal1700 English empire takes over scotland1750 Adam Smith starts an alternative discipline to all assets being controlled by few top people ( which was foundation of economics). The urgency of Adam's search for human logic is demonstrated by the fact that over half of Scots had to sail the seven seas between 1700 to 1850 to entrepreneurially survive. It is a matter of familial record that England's accountants imposed a taxation culture that demanded lairds value sheep as worth more each quarter than Scottish peoples. Accidentally the Scots became one of the first nations to be more www networked than geographically landlocked. Something that the productivity of every 21st youth now connects with.Late 18th century: scotland's auld allies the french give birth to the "entrepreneur"; at origin "between take" is prepare to transfer assets by cutting off heads of those who monopolise productive assets preventing peoples form leading productive lives1843 Using the language of let's Social Action Business: Scot James Wilson invites everyone to map out peaceful entrepreneurship and sustainability models of world trade. To do this he becomes a member of parliament with goal of getting 90% of vested interest MPS to resign;  he founds The Economist as the media to get rid of vested interest MPS1860 While trying to reform Raj economics , James dies before his time in Calcutta needing oral rehydration. His son-in-law take up the challenge- within 15 years he has reformed the English Constitution mentoring Queen Victoria's transformation from head of slavemaking empire to centre of commonwealthNonetheless, colonisation by Europe takes another 75 years to die including 2 world wars; (churchill's intelligence was communicated out of st james in ww2) and leaves behind a world of over-government and geo-political dichotomy : communism versus capitalism both of whose extremes become mathematically the same endgame of lose-lose-lose human sustainability. See Einsteain and John von Neumann if you need more maths of that.

The country inheriting the shortest straw from colonisation, Bangladesh innovates the greatest human miracle of our times. In 40 short years the microentrepreneurial networking of the extraordinary people and families and communities of Bangladesh is celebrated in this leaflet which also brings one and two thirds of a century of saint James economics and commonwealth celebrations uptodate. We propose that London's Olympics can unite world youth in celebrating the 10 times more productive knowhow that Bangladeshis are open sourcing round the net generation.  You're invited to sustainably update Future History from 2011. Hopefully the BBC , by constitution br\oadcasting most resourced social busiess, will join in activating youth's exciting 2010s too. It can start by understanding the most important project of Mary Robinson's life  - more futures of beeb

 This web unabashedly heroises James, probably the number 1 internationalist scot and entrepreneurial revolutionary of the northern hemispheres. By 1843 James had decided that the future of youth needed 90% of MPs of England's empire booted out of parliament. As well as becoming an MP, he used media to achieve this goal. That's what The Economist's vision was about at least until 1988. James' son-in-law, and second editor, Walter Bagehot changed Queen Victoria's job decription from head of slave-run empire to epicenjtre of commonwealth. That journey arguably reaches its most exciting moments during Lonmdon's Olympics in 2012 if the BBC understands the most exiting news it can generate with youth and cross-cultral world service thru 2010s  - more soon! Over 35 years since my dad published entrepreneurial revolution in The Economist, I have noticed that there is a great danger that professional people  - and academics most notably - forget what stuff is their expert jargon. Although its not up to me, my recommendation will be that the journal of social busienss should encourage a multiplicity of writing styles not just the academic norm

95% of young people -if 2010s is to be exciting - who need to be involved in debate of what microcredit truly does havent got enough framework in mind to even enter the debate (and the same can be said for what yunus means by "social business")

perhaps less than 1% are like us with so much info around us

and quite probably this sort of bbc article below actually published 2 december is where the other 4% start - of course if you think the other 4% start start at some other common text, I am interested in what you think it is

Personally I am comfier asking teachers of young people to re-examine economics from the start rather than the more specific microcredit "brand" because which ever you re-examine is going to be a huge amount of work to get anywhere near a level playing field given the distraced nature of mass media, the top-down bias that all governments have hungover from 20th C geopolitics, and the way young people in developed nations use mobile tech and what I regard as very dismally designed social media. Also I dont think many bankers start from a mindset of way above zero-sum which as per dr yunus last chapter of latest book is the only future worldwide mindset acceptable if net generation is to be exciting, joyful

anyhow this may or may not be relevant to whether youth dilaogues can help save bangladesh's peoples freedom to open source world changung maps in the coming quarter, and so the rest of the 2010s

The history of The Economist future shocks a lot of people including its customers. Born in 1843 it was a social action designed to rid big vested interests from London's parliament of superpower, dismantle Empire, and entrepreneurially return job creating assets and sustainble (exponential rising) futures to the people -not just British people as we see from founder James Wilson dying before his time working in Calcutta trying to reform Raj professions and their top-down rule books

My dad wrote there for 40 years 1949-1989. In tune with the founding culture of Scot James Wilson, Norman Macrae was a modest man (why should I or anyone want to celebrate me?) but thorougly immodest in raising debates he felt peoples - not goverment or other big systems - needed the freedom (of hi-trust markets) to lead. Late in life he met Dr Muhammad Yunus. By stroke of good timing 1976 was the year that both these trained microeconomists devoted the rest of their lives to entrepreneurial revolution What fun their ideas and youth can connect through the 2010s is one of the urgent mapmaking tasks of netgeneration

As Geofrrey Crowther, editor during The Economist's 1943 centenary wrote: It is still possible by social action to create a world of justice, freedom, fraternite and material welfare. In this great caravan, the journal of opinion if it be humble and honest has its place. The Economist has stayed with the caravan for longer than most. It hopes to stay a great while longer..

2008, Valentines Day +1: 1000 people begin a Social Business journey with Dr Yunus : 35 at lunch at the Royal Automobile Club, the remainder at the local church in St James. In paralel we started a virtual book club of 1000 readers- here are some notes for thse interested in catching up to where a new journey starts spring 2010 round the new Yunus1000 bookclub

To sample what has been fast tracked : start where Global Grameen was officially launched  with 100 alumni . This short video plays out of the Volkswagen theme park in Wolfsburg Nov 2009 . Can collaborations worldwide celebrate with Dr Yunus his purpose for global grameen to be everyone's favourite partner in sustainablity? How about deep innovation projects for human progress that rock around the globe and make the 2010s the most exciting decade to be alive in - -the 1960s were pretty cool for the space race, but the race to end poverty is 100 times more fun once you're @  the games


If you are unsure of the game rules of social busness system design. try out this slide (we welcome views on best ways to clarify what SB is and what it isn't)


Mathematically, to study social business system design is to study the most pursposeful organisational systems that can be compounded across generations. Between 1976-2004, Grameen Social Business System designs were primarily about job creation both by the mother of village families and in developing her next generation and so the sustainbailty of local communities.


From 2005, Dr Yunus has innovated Global Social Business models -that is partnerships between Grameen as a grassroots network serving life developing needs and some of the world's most resourced organisations such as Danone or Intel Corporations, or HEC university, or increasingly a developed country's youth (France being the lead case). Along with the 1000 bookclub being linked in around BuildingSocialBusiness, we invite you primarily to study the collaborating partnring games that evolve when global social busienss partnershis network around the most vital sustainability goals of the 2010s. These range from:

  •  ending poverty (eg the one in 6 chance that a child born in 2010 will have next to zero chamce to grow up healthily, literate and vocationally skilled for 21st C jobs,  
  • to enjoying co-creation of the first billion jobs that could not have been systemised in history's knowledge-disconnected era.

Dare we suggest that mass media are mistaken when they cover millennium goals as being anything less than uniting participation in what parents wish for all of our childrens futures.


But first a bit more grounding from the first 3 decades of Grameen's evolution.  



Grameen's birth took 7 years from 4 co-founders start up in 1976 to Bangladesh constitution in a 1983 law of a bank owned by the poorest. Right from the start Grameen was designed to be the developing world's greatest job creation network integrating poorest people's bank, markets owned by communities of 60 villagers and knowledge hubs. And the sustainability (16 decision) investment criteria that members elected became a sprinboard to connect more and more of "the dots" illustrated as community productivity compounded.

Entrepreneurial system mapmakers believe the 2010s are the most exiciting decade because this time will uniquely be that where citizens around the world question collaboration partnering (CP) as the new source of innovation and national advantage - more than that sustainability exponentials for future human generation will be won or lost. Interested? Help us focus each years's greatest challenge rsvp if you vote for a different one (rsvp info to nominate a CP boardgame or to join our sponsors : 9 year olds, 12 year olds ....

  • 2010 grow citizen debates through decade on how to create billion jobs with mobile and web's tech revolutions
  • 2011 can our global village age design a micro union of nations whose whole truth is that sustaned growth of all their economies depend on collaborating with each other as well as not excluding any nation that newly gets microeconomics collaborative empowerment;
  • 2012 can londoners smarten up the globalisation's mass media photo call of being olympics game hosts and change the bbc to be a citiznen owned social business public broadcaster whose greatest world service is open curiositiy in investigating sustanability agendas -where is social business's first anchor woman and will she get as much freedom of voice as macroeconomics news analysts

In 2010 YunusBook Club1000 intends to host its main party in Saint James as we did in Feb 2008 to celebrate James Wilson's founding 1843 vision of The Economist. Economics  editors have no true purpose in global media -and cannot free global market sectors to value sustainability's exponenentials - unless they are openly and constantly questioned by social business correspondents.

Extract from launch prospectus of The Economist, 1843

We have made such arrangements and under such superintendence, as will secure the accomplishment of all that we propose, in a way which we trust will render our objects and exertions useful to the country: we have no party or class interests or motives; we are of no class, or rather of every class: we are of the landowning class: we are of the commercial class interested in our colonies, in our foreign trade, and in our manufactures: but our opinions are that not one part of these can have any lasting and true success that is not associated and co-existing with the prosperity of all.

And lastly—if we required higher motives than bare utility, to induce that zeal, labour, and perseverance against all the difficulties which we shall have to encounter in this work—we have them. If we look abroad, we see within the range of our commercial intercourse whole islands and continents, on which the light of civilization has scarce yet dawned; and we seriously believe that FREE TRADE, free intercourse, will do more than any other visible agent to extend civilization and morality throughout the world—yes, to extinguish slavery itself. Then, if we look around us at home, we see ignorance, depravity, immorality, irreligion, abounding to an extent disgraceful to a civilized country; and we feel assured that there is little chance of successfully treating this great national disease while want and pauperism so much abound: we can little hope to improve the mental and moral condition of a people while their physical state is so deplorable:—personal experience has shown us in the manufacturing districts that the people want no acts of parliament to coerce education or induce moral improvement when they are in physical comfort—and that, when men are depressed with want and hunger, and agonized by the sufferings of helpless and starving children, no acts of parliament are of the slightest avail. We look far beyond the power of acts of parliament, or even of the efforts of the philanthropist or the charitable, however praiseworthy, to effect a cure for this great national leprosy; we look mainly to an improvement in the condition of the people. And we hope to see the day when it will be as difficult to understand how an act of parliament could have been made to restrict the food and employment of the people, as it is now to conceive how the mild, inoffensive spirit of Christianity could ever have been conceived into the plea of persecution and martyrdom, or how poor old wrinkled women, with a little eccentricity, were burned by

    get over this risk aversion, and never trying anything less than perfect execution,  and find your optimist flow

    the great think about being marketer is that 9 out of 10 concepts failing is a very good batting average but dont waste time on small ones when playing with the brand humanit most wants ti celebrate with they'll have even less chnace than big ones

    Hi Karl

    This is the Unacknowledged Giant's next microeconomics project i would like to get going before Feb 14 - 3 years on from dr yunus kind briefing of 30 londoners and 1 joyful economist at royal automobile club

    Book on Joy of Economics


    Karl any chance of a meeting in next 4 weeks to see if I could pay you take on writing/editing of a first draft


    Version 1.0 may not need to be a book as much as a fun instruction manual to play the missing game of our net geneartion and times; something that can be pdf’d out at time of yunus congress speech is our families' foundations association deadline


    My father’s hypothesis after 65 years of making diaries on economics is that people urgently need local stock (capital raising) markets that linkin either to a global social business stock market or to say 20 pressing needs stock markets some of which would be entirely SB modelled and some (eg in infotech) might be hybrid sb models. They also need enough public mass media to stimulate internet interactivity (ie best of both mass and one-on-one-on-7billion). Ironically only the BBC can save the Euro now but it doesnt know the reality tv game it and idia's DD need to co-produce until this book comes out.


    To illustrate the need the suggestion is to have 10-20 chapters each of which is a dialogue on what purpose can this sector most value to sustain communities and so investment next generation; my idea is to make this look like a dialogue game with 8 chairs where we would mainly develop the dialogue that people like yunus ingrid munro queen sofia adam smith sam daley harris monica yunus fazle abed would have in proposing some best in kind models for each chapter

    1 basic banks

    2 stockmarkets and investment banks

    3 healthcare

    4 primary school

    5 secondary school

    6 mass media

    7 interactive (network media) or info tech

    8 water

    9 agriculture

    10 clean energy

    11 post-secondary school

    12 professions  12.1 that measure 12.2 that police

    13 government

    14 beyond aid - hub the partnhership triad of public, private and net-generation

    15 manufacture (thing market) cases to include zero footprint carpets manufacture ray anderson

    16 service markets (cases to include mackey conscious capitalism retailing)

    17 knowledge networked markets

    18 real estate markets

    19 narcissistic entertainment markets -safety of


    if there is any trillion dollar global market's purpose not linked to above then we should consider including it – since actually the biggest markets are usually the ones that most need freedom of open sourced or locally sustaining ones too


    I am aware that the general version would need links in to how this varies by different cultures or whether a regions main crisis is development or to stop job destruction (undevelopment); so the game encourages great questions as much as it does racing to answers; in fact it should encourage recursiveness which is humanity’s passport to always being smarter than computers


    (we dont have to play all of these categories or we can reshape them


    in the unlikely event that we could eventually see a best-seller I would like to try and structure SB51 model; this means putting 51% of profit to a global social business fund and paying ourselves (and any co-workers) enough to keep our family going and see if the book can eventually become the social business networking game aps destination that facebook never can be


    The game does have 20 years of proven maths underpinning this but we dont need to go on to that a lot ; or if we do need to brief some umpires its basically a game that moves beyond zero sums than valuing how goodwill and nature actually multiplies first and then adds which is the exact opposite of every global profession today that draws borders around their client and so uses addition which the operation assuming separability and lifeless futures. Those who spreadsheet additive models never see what exponential futures they are spinning; and it is thus mindset that current value the unjoyful combo of goldsachs-facebooking as more valuable than anything else in the world.. Based on elementary theory of einstein and jonny von neumann, Dad and my 1984 book covered this as the orwellian scenario of net generation; with yunus in obama's last congress it is sustainability's final calling to use social business modelling to lift ourselves above to higher order win-win-win mapmaking scenario.

    peter can I suggest you and sofia do need to meet sandra (uk "ambassador" of brac) before going to microcredtsummit kenya; I believe that BRAC would discuss very openly with you if there are any synergies for you and them; it would be appropriate , if Sofia and I can help you, to ask tania or sam if you can have 30 minutes with fazle abed in kenya if once you have information on brac such  a meeting matters to you


    as usual on Bangladesh microeconomics since retirement of dad who trained himself in economics in Bangladesh , The Economist has managed to get key bits of the story wrong so as to divide grameen and brac. Even a 12 year old such as my daughter interested in human sustainability ought to know that BRAC’s origins were in disaster relief and in replicating the solution to the disease that killed James Wilson prematurely –in The Economist’s own language was BRAC’s origin not  the most successful privitisation case in development economics. The least The Economist as a responsible media can do now is ask yunus and abed to write a joint letter at any length they choose to correct the article's errors.  

    however of relevance to you as london's main (and MIT's alternative) knowledge practice connections with microcredit, given yunus 2010s is aiming to do to global media what he did to global banking, I think the reason why he wouldnt discuss with peter griffiths whether you would be accredited grameen-style in malawi simply that he cant cope with that size of project -obviously his diary is 100 times overbooked

    Face value

    BRAC in business
    Feb 18th 2010
    From The Economist print edition

    Fazle Hasan Abed has built one of the world’s most commercially-minded and successful NGOs

    Arise, Abed

    SMILING and dapper, Fazle Hasan Abed hardly seems like a revolutionary. A Bangladeshi educated in Britain, an admirer of Shakespeare and Joyce, and a former accountant at Shell, he is the son of a distinguished family: his maternal grandfather was a minister in the colonial government of Bengal; a great-uncle was the first Bengali to serve in the governor of Bengal’s executive council. This week he received a very traditional distinction of his own: a knighthood. Yet the organisation he founded, and for which his knighthood is a gong of respect, has probably done more than any single body to upend the traditions of misery and poverty in Bangladesh. Called BRAC, it is by most measures the largest, fastest-growing non-governmental organisation (NGO) in the world—and one of the most businesslike.

    Although Mohammed Yunus won the Nobel peace prize in 2006 for helping the poor, his Grameen Bank was neither the first nor the largest microfinance lender in his native Bangladesh; BRAC was. Its microfinance operation disburses about $1 billion a year. But this is only part of what it does: it is also an internet-service provider; it has a university; its primary schools educate 11% of Bangladesh’s children. It runs feed mills, chicken farms, tea plantations and packaging factories. BRAC has shown that NGOs do not need to be small and that a little-known institution from a poor country can outgun famous Western charities. In a book on BRAC entitled “Freedom from Want”, Ian Smillie calls it “undoubtedly the largest and most variegated social experiment in the developing world. The spread of its work dwarfs any other private, government or non-profit enterprise in its impact on development.”

    None of this seemed likely in 1970, when Sir Fazle turned Shell’s offices in Chittagong into a refuge for victims of a deadly cyclone. BRAC—which started as an acronym, Bangladesh Rehabilitation Assistance Committee, and became a motto, “building resources across communities”—surmounted its early troubles by combining two things that rarely go together: running an NGO as a business and taking seriously the social context of poverty.

    BRAC earns from its operations about 80% of the money it disburses to the poor (the remainder is aid, mostly from Western donors). It calls a halt to activities that require endless subsidies. At one point, it even tried financing itself from the tiny savings of the poor (ie, no aid at all), though this drastic form of self-help proved a step too far: hardly any lenders or borrowers put themselves forward. From the start, Sir Fazle insisted on brutal honesty about results. BRAC pays far more attention to research and “continuous learning” than do most NGOs. David Korten, author of “When Corporations Rule the World”, called it “as near to a pure example of a learning organisation as one is likely to find.”

    What makes BRAC unique is its combination of business methods with a particular view of poverty. Poverty is often regarded primarily as an economic problem which can be alleviated by sending money. Influenced by three “liberation thinkers” fashionable in the 1960s—Frantz Fanon, Paulo Freire and Ivan Illich—Sir Fazle recognised that poverty in Bangladeshi villages is also a result of rigid social stratification. In these circumstances, “community development” will help the rich more than the poor; to change the poverty, you have to change the society.

    That view might have pointed Sir Fazle towards left-wing politics. Instead, the revolutionary impetus was channelled through BRAC into development. Women became the institution’s focus because they are bottom of the heap and most in need of help: 70% of the children in BRAC schools are girls. Microfinance encourages the poor to save but, unlike the Grameen Bank, BRAC also lends a lot to small companies. Tiny loans may improve the lot of an individual or family but are usually invested in traditional village enterprises, like owning a cow. Sir Fazle’s aim of social change requires not growth (in the sense of more of the same) but development (meaning new and different activities). Only businesses create jobs and new forms of productive enterprise.

    After 30 years in Bangladesh, BRAC has more or less perfected its way of doing things and is spreading its wings round the developing world. It is already the biggest NGO in Afghanistan, Tanzania and Uganda, overtaking British charities which have been in the latter countries for decades. Coming from a poor country—and a Muslim one, to boot—means it is less likely to be resented or called condescending. Its costs are lower, too: it does not buy large white SUVs or employ large white men.

    Its expansion overseas may, however, present BRAC with a new problem. Robert Kaplan, an American writer, says that NGOs fill the void between thousands of villages and a remote, often broken, government. BRAC does this triumphantly in Bangladesh—but it is a Bangladeshi organisation. Whether it can do the same elsewhere remains to be seen.

    James Wilson PC (3 June 1805 – 11 August 1860) was a Scottish hat maker, Liberal politician and economist, as well as the founder of The Economist and the modern Standard Chartered Bank.



    [edit] Early life

    Wilson was born in Hawick in the Borders. A successful disciplined autodidact scholar from a Quaker family, he was destined to be a schoolmaster but hated it so much that he "would rather to be the most menial servant in [his] father's mill". After considering studying for election to the Faculty of Advocates, against his family religion, he decided to be schooled in economics. So at the age of 16, he became an apprentice in a hat factory. Later, his father then bought the business for him and his elder brother, William. They left Scotland and moved to London, England when James was 19, with a gift of £2,000 each (£130,000 in 2005 pounds).[citation needed]

    [edit] Business career in London

    The brothers established a manufacturing factory that they dissolved it in 1831. Wilson continued in the same line of business with much success (his net worth was £25,000 in 1837, or £1,630,000 in 2005 pounds). During the economic crisis of 1837, he lost most of his wealth when the price of indigo fell. By 1839 he sold most of his property and avoided bankruptcy. However, in 1853 he founded The Chartered Bank of India, Australia and China, which later merged with the Standard Bank of British South Africa to form Standard Chartered Bank in 1969.[citation needed]

    [edit] Journalistic career

    Wilson was generally opposed to privileging the Church of England, the secret ballot when it was proposed in 1853, and the Corn Laws. He wrote a pamphlet titled Influences of the Corn Laws, as affection all classes of the comminity, and particularly the landed interests. It slowly received positive feedback and Wilson's fame had grown. He then went on writing on currency, and especially The Revenue; or, What should the Chancellor do?. He started to write for newspapers, including the Manchester Guardian. In 1843 he established The Economist as a newspaper to campaign for free trade, and acted as Chief editor and sole proprietor for sixteen years. The Economist is still published today, now with a weekly circulation of over 1.2 million globally.[citation needed]

    [edit] Political career

    Wilson entered the House of Commons as Liberal Member of Parliament for Westbury, Wiltshire, in 1847.[1] Because of his economic experience prime minister Lord John Russell appointed him Secretary of the Board of Control (which ran the affairs of India) in 1848, a post he held until the government fell in 1852. He then served as Financial Secretary to the Treasury between 1853 and 1858, firstly in Lord Aberdeen's coalition government and secondly in Lord Palmerston's first administration.[citation needed] In 1857 he was returned to Parliament for Devonport.[2] He again briefly held office under Palmerston as Paymaster-General and Vice-President of the Board of Trade between June and August 1859 and was sworn of the Privy Council the same year.[3]

    In August 1859 Wilson resigned these offices and his seat in parliament to sit as the financial member of the Council of India. He was sent to India to establish the tax structure, a new paper currency and remodel the finance system of India after the revolt of 1857. However, he was in office only a year before he died. In 1860 he refused to leave the stifling summer heat of Calcutta, contracted dysentery and died in August of that year, aged 55.[citation needed]

    Strangely even though he contributed greatly to the financial set-up of the British empire in India, he lay buried unknown at a cemetery at Mullick Bazar in Kolkata. His grave was discovered in 2007 by CP Bhatia, an assistant commissioner of Income Tax, while he was researching a book on India's tax history. Due to the efforts of CP Bhatia the tombstone was restored by the Christian Burial Board, thus restoring some dignity to a man that was in a way one of the forefathers of the Indian Tax structure.[4][5]

    [edit] Family

    Wilson married Elizabeth Preston of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in January 1832. They had six daughters, of whom Eliza, the eldest, married Walter Bagehot.[citation needed]

    Hi People

    Mostofa - could you and Martin make a visit some time to one of the dhaka bookshops with the 20 or so books on microcredit published in english - and get 5 copies of banker of the poor

    I am interested if our Yunus birthday week club can go back to 1997 when the first microcreditsummit was launched -this happens very near the end of the book (eg end of chapter 39) with the yes we can poverty museum speech that dr yunus made in 1997 at the microcredisummit reproduced. Its worth reading how yes we can was yunus language in 1997, as was the invitation to make poverty museum the space race that united the networking generation.

    It is both extraordinary to understand what sam daley harris , dr yunus , john hatch , queen sofia, a few people have every year led with microcreditsummit and also all the organisations that were founded around them in 1997 which have since wandered off course of which the world bank's CGAP is for me an example but accion the worst, calvert fund ugly- all these folk who design microfinance around foreign shareholders seem to me as a mathematician to turn a system away from what made it heroic and sustainable and worth celebrating.  

    There's an issue about open sourcing a beauiful and hi-trust human system like microcredit which now multiplies through every other application of genuine social business modelling that youth ambassadors 5000 need to be the protectors of. Let's debate that once you have read the book's chapter 39 and, and if there is anyone here not coming to dhaka but happy to make a virtual bookclub debate of this please say so 

    5 stars of Youth Ambassador 5000 -

    Keynes: The world is ruled by little else than the gradual encroachment of economic ideas

    There's also another burning issue- in recent speeches yunus has been quite confident about calling this the greatest crisis year ever - one where we are the crossroads of going back to the old normalcy of wall street or finally going beyond colonial top-down economics - a macroeconomics system which back in 1843 The Economist was founded to dismantle without success. The scot who founded The Economist died before his time 1863? in Calcutta 10 months into trying to reform British raj economics -the killer disease one that BRAC now cures at 10 cents a go. As Keynes is quoted above in a book of my father's that I gave dr yunus last time we met the world is ruled by economics

    long before the baliouts,  economics in our era of globalisation died unless you are intent on studying how to make things 10 times less economical - so just like dr yunus has already proposed that one of the star ratings of 5000 youth amabassadors he most needs to network with comes from having had a life changing experience with microcredit in bangladesh or certified true replication, it seems another STAR needs be those young people who are able to take keynes proposition that economics is the only thing that rules us as the starting point of every conversation or action learning they host in the name of mictrocredit clubs  

    I have been doing a sample survey of shareholders of The Economist since 2005 -its quite interesting to see who thought economics died when

    3 ways to celebrate first annivesary of last lunch for big banking

    1 You can help 19-24 year old new yorkers to complete their race started at a collaboration cafe with Dr Yunus on 27 Jan 09 of a web linking 1000 social businesses by june 2009 - even one citation of a social business helps us on the way to Dr Yunus' wish to unite us builiding a social business stockmarket;

    Last Lunch 15 feb 08, St James, London

     RAC movie6

    2 you can vote 5th annual world most trusted leader poll- rsvp  by 31 dec 09

     and ask peers to do likewise;

    3 you can help us search out famous professors or VIPS who are prepared to agree that busenss stidents need an other system round curriculum - could be quite popular now that senior economists on both sides of the atlantic are agreed that about half of america's 16 biggest global banks can and must be put in adminstration without harming anyone than shareholders who after all cannot expect anything from owning bankrupt corporations

    Dear Professor Krugman


    Great hearing you speak at think big think forward on Wednesday


    I don’t know if you ever met my dad’s 40 years of entrepreneurial revolution editorials at The Economist 1950-1989 but as per the one-pager enclosed he agrees with the probability that up to half of the biggest banks need to be put into administration


    For 2 years now, my peers and I have been working to understand Muhammad Yunus micro-up baking solutions on this and how to make sure that 18-25 year olds know about this choice. For example, our free DVD with good news youtubes from yunus and his friends is being used to research views of 10000 youth


    So far the number 1 problem fed back by university students is : standard professional curricula are examination time-warped in the old world as if non-transparent big banking will be the new normalcy as well as the old.


    If you know of any professors who would join Dr Muhammad Yunus in a panel whose names or work help accelerate change of curriculum towards sustainable business audited around goodwill multiplication , then I would love to be told whom to contact at any time.

    news embargo to january 26


    Have your team already briefed rick wartzman in california? - he is a former full-time journalist but may know some still mass channelling; he heads the drucker institute; was one of the few people to publicly interview Dr Yunus on his book tour this time last year

    as well as his own interests in waving your fabulous news on millennium goal practice - and mapping who at drucker's school might be most interested because yunus and drucker mean(t) by knowledge working what few others in Knowledge Management on west coast internet mean, Rick may know how to contact jane wales who calls yunus the world's number 1 problem solver and thus the one Obama needs as his counsel and alan webber who wrote in usa today back in march that we need to unite Nobel economics and peace prizes - boy that's the first thing Obama should ask of Nordica region

    Its possible that kevin will know Vivian the partly french lady at huffingtonpost because I think she is connected with the film of yunus that the french have been making for 5 years - I am not sure about that all of that team's media abilities but its clear where Vivian Norris de Montaigu is coming from

    Two people who need a special (ie timeless) brief because they are not going to write anything immediatley but want yunus choice debated are Charlie Rose in NY and David Frost in London. The problem being instead of interviewing yunus live they need some time to reflect the bigger future stories that are connecting around him which its difficult to ask if you havent had a brief first. There is a bigger (much more pessimst's) problem at The Economist and Financial Times becasue unlike Frost and Rose who are at least on the side of questioning choice, their reporters haven't questioned the futures wall street was spinning for at least 8 years and they haven't exponentially questioned their own assumptions of what Free market means in each sector-and frankly economists who dont transparently try to question exponentials arent worth an Enron damn and nor an Orleans levee -at least btaht was the brief of the founder of The Economist in 1843 and it does no harm to inter-action it

    yunus st james lunch feb08 - scene of my biggest mistake- can you help correct it?
    I should have introduced the rac lunch with muhammad yunus and norman macrae with a story on the systemic irresponsibility of man - be that corporate, government, NGO, media, profession .. If I had introduced something like the following, would you have propagated a different conversation and helped intervene before compound wrong economics and errant corporate irresponsibilities of banking blew up wall street? And is there some way to recirculate the stories now in time for obama economic team to make the right system changing decisons of the irresponisbility of man trapped in systems of superpower?
    My father's lifetime testimony's to economics core truths
    Value Multiplying Truth number 1 is that at all costs we - as whole human race -  owe it to our chldren and future generations to design simple measurements so that NO large organisational system - communist or capitalist - gets taken over by a small group of people at the top who end up defending their own vested interests in exclusion to all others

    dad's learning curve:
    early 1930's -dad and peter drucker bumped into each other at the british embassy in stalin's moscow - (my dad led an itinerant childhood as his dad was a british consular - granddad who had originally been told by his parents to join the clergy had been studying religion in Heidelberg when the first world war broke out - with his newly learned German tongue he became a micro-spy for the british- after which embassy work instead of church work was naturally more appealing -it was an extraordinary multi-hemisphere experience from his first assignment in Porto Alegro - that part of Brazil where the world social forum was later born - through moscow through the adriatic port at the end of the 1930s where european jews escaped to israel... monitoring how the world's most entrepreneurial people were chased out of one place to another by big over-powering systems (foot 1)  and
    new media abusively used is in our family's blood so to speak)

    that decade as hitler also spawned, influenced all Pete's and Norm's 20th century unmanagement literature don't wish to be managing a big organisation unless you have designed in metrics and overall purpose to keep it entrepreneurially small -later by 1980 wealthy nations were already primarily service economies and it became clear to those who map systems (and networks= system**N) that post-industrial revolution generation1984-2024 would be that one whose responsibility determined whether we would integrate localities in a globally sustainable/
    exponentials way or one that start compounding the destruction oif every natural and human value as both einstein and gandhi had made their favourite 1930s debate

    by 1943 my dad was in his late teens studying an Indian correspondence course in economics whilst waiting to navigate RAF airplanes out of Muslim Bangladesh's airports in world war 2; this flow of economics contexts helped him question milton keynes as the last generation at cambridge to be directly taught by that economist; by 1950 he started nearly half a century at The Economist provoking severe tests of leadership visioning on what global market sectors were they compoundng- with a questioning style of MICRO entrepreneurial journalism that remains unequalled in NW hemispheres unless you can link me to where else it is being mediated washington dc  bureau, (Dec 2008), usa tel 301 881 1655

    foot 1:(led by people who had become so separated at the top that they were eventually blind, mad or bad by any profiling measures which ordinarily curious human beings know how to develop)

    Is there any to diarise as financial globalisation implodes?

    Today's Economist features a post-mortem on the collapse of global finance which can be read as saying well it was all pretty inevitable that such over-exuberance would happen. I think that it matters that ordinary people play devil's advocate. No over-exuberance among world's most powerful people and professions society has trusted monoploy rule to  terrifies me. Economists' main job needs be to analyse compound consequence scenarios ahead of time and enage in transpoarent dilaogue imo

    so doubtless this post has naiivity as far as expert economists are concerned but I would certainly like to publish more here if they can make points about how to redesign globalisation to compound wealth, health and trust -I absoluetly believe that listing purposes a networked world wants its free markets to prioritise whould be included in this- and on that baises the free market on ending poverty has since 1984 been voted number 1 valuation demand by all the people my clan connects with

    but where is that in The Economist's appraisals of how to reconstruct our futures around the interdependent networked world

    I am not sure that The Economist has gone back to very basic questions- perhaps because these would require it to move beyond its own ideology which at one stage under Bill Emmott was globalisation (as ruled by top of corporations and big organisations) is the best everyone including the poorest will get except for the agricultural policy

    With almost anything other than a bank , with such rotten products as credit and retail bubbles, people as customers and societies would celebrate their death. Of course we have to stand back and say but not while you have our savings in you and not while you are so central to how every other business sector flows, and nations are now often more connected than separated in their decline and fall. All dynamics that required compound risk analysis ahead of time to have much more share of voice in global viewspaper columns.

    However it would seem entirely correct to penalise both the owners and the leaders of these rotten service organisations. To the extent that banks were part-nationalised- why did we offer shareholders more than 10% of the share price quoted on such decision day. In the case of those who rewarded themsleves hundreds of millions each for inventing subprime etc- why not let governments give them a year's amnesty to suggest how much they will return to the state, and then make it clear those who bid mean will have much of the rest of their dismal lives looked into by state lawyers as to whether fraud cases can be made. These would seem minimums that people need so that the rest of this century is free marketed around hi-trust and not just financial grab.

    Some may recall that the origin of the word entrepreneur (asset between taking) referred to the French guillotining royalty and the debate of how the freeing of assets from those who had ruled to chain others's productive freedoms would need news maps of who decided what. Perhaps it no surprise that the number 1 unlearning MBA course is starting up at HEC paris

    Announcing Good Financial/Economics News of the Month

    In this world where finance and economics seems to have been compounding so much dismal news recently, my father and I propose to start a thread on best news of the month. Next month in a parallel development we will be asking  10000 youth to join the search - if you may want to help host a youth event in your region please contact me

    Here is September's benchmark for good news of the month which may take some beating by any month

    GRAMEEN TRUST AND FUNDACIÓN CARLOS SLIM ANNOUNCE JOINT VENTURE TO PROVIDE MICROCREDIT LOANS TO THE POOR IN MEXICO -- Venture will initially deploy $45 million (U.S.) for microcredit loans destined for needy individuals in the poorest regions of  Mexico.

    Grameen Trust is the international outreach affiliate of the Grameen Bank.

    Fundación Carlos Slim A.C. (“Fundación Carlos Slim”), the family charitable foundation of Mexican businessman Carlos Slim Helú

    Using the lending model pioneered by the Grameen Bank of Bangladesh, Grameen Carso will provide small microcredit loans to poor individuals to enable them to create or expand small entrepreneurial initiatives.   These loans will not require collateral and instead will use a system of mutual support among the borrowers to encourage repayment.  Borrowers also will build savings during their loan-based relationship with Grameen Carso.  Based on Grameen Bank’s huge success in Bangladesh, where it serves over 7 million borrowers, and the success of other Grameen initiatives around the world, the joint venture expects that income from entrepreneurial activities will provide borrowers with a path out of poverty and a foundation for development of family health, education and general welfare.   Like the Grameen Bank, Grameen Carso expects to concentrate on loans to women, as experience has shown that women are the most successful and reliable borrowers.

     Grameen Carso reflects the commitment of Fundación Carlos Slim to greatly expand microcredit in Mexico for the benefit of persons who are excluded from the traditional banking system.

    Professor Muhammad Yunus, who founded the Grameen Bank and shared the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize with the bank, said “it is obvious that poverty remains an enormous problem in Mexico and it also is obvious from the history of the Grameen Bank that microcredit provides a direct and efficient means of reducing poverty.  Through the entrepreneurial initiatives of borrowers and the education and financial training that are provided through the Grameen lending model, borrowers build economic foundations for themselves and for their families and they focus on improving their families’ education, health and general well-being.  Grameen Bank has shown that microcredit programs can be an economic success without charging exorbitant interest rates.  I am enormously excited by the opportunity to bring the Grameen model of microcredit to Mexico on a large scale and I am very grateful to Mr. Slim and his foundation for providing the resources necessary to make Grameen Carso a reality.  We welcome ideas and recommendations for improving the lives of the poor in Mexico and elsewhere”.

    Bill Clinton has said this of Carlos Slim:

    Carlos Slim is one of the world’s most important philanthropists and most people have never heard about his humanitarian activities. He owns stock in more than 200 companies that employ more than 200,000 people in Latin America and beyond. He has used his resources to help develop the communities where his businesses are located. In his own country, Mexico, he has personally supported more than 165,000 young people in attending university, paid for numerous surgeries, provided equipment for rural schools and covered surety bonds for 50,000 people who were entitled to their freedom but could not afford. He recently created the Carso Institute for Health, and designed it to provide a new approach to health care in Mexico. He has four billion dollars of investments ready to promote education, health and other great challenges, and has recently announced an additional six billion dollar investment in several programs, including his Telmex Foundation."

    the forbidden question of macroeconomics -when is a global market free?

    I am taking a guess that the reason why people like alan are having difficult translating the congruence of entrepreneurship as studied by my father's Bangladeshi micro lens in 1944 which was written up as the most prolific leadership articles in The Economist (over 2500 editorials) , Dr Yunus's social business model as the maths of sustainability investment’s exponentials and 10-win as the complete game piece is the first picture attached


    if you look at the bottom 6 circles - 3 productivities and 3 demands you are where service economics governance could have got to with intrapreneurship in 1980

    this was not liked for 2 reasons - it asked bosses to stop bossing and it asked tangible accountants to value people as investments instead of costs - this would have required shredding their tangible analysis monopoly- something that the Big 5 when I worked in them in 1990-1995 preferred not to do whatever the ultimate compound cost to society- even when we got rid on andersen as the worst of all these greedy metrics monopolists nobody bothered to change accountants valuation rule born in the industrial age of  machines are capital investments, people are costs particular as no company can own them


    By 1984 it was clear that one generation as they networked every locality into a globalization would end with one of 2 systems - worse than Orwell ultimately ending all human sustainability or the best of cross-cultural times. As father forecast 1984 to achieve human sustainability you would have to shred macroeconomics (eg yesterdays' wall street and white house) and go over to microeconomics (ie Grameen and Mirpur); and you would need to network at least 30000 community rising projects to end poverty


    If we look at the top 2 circles on the left - anyone who tells me societies (with education, natural resources etc) are not the biggest investors of all (far big that corporation investors) is quite a mad raving looney; and anyone who tells me that global markets are free when there is no transparency and new life critical solutions need the same billions of ads to get people to need people to hear of them as non solutions (but ones that some greedy group -eg malaria nets profits from)  or the next new flavor of soda basically doesn’t know the meaning of the words free or true. I am afraid that at system level  few people in America translate their declaration of independence into what they license monopolies of professions to do with the consequence that unchanged usa will at best be the 3rd world continent by 2050 or at worst ended sustainability of all of us. All because of a maths mistake and not being able redraw this picture until you are happy that with dr yunus maps you can deign 10 win social business or 100-win future capitalism and do this I time to replace 100-lose global market networks if you do trillion dollar auditing by monitoring 10-win molecular information from micro up


    so we can go on fiddling while Rome and everywhere is burning or go and talk t whichever profession we know best and tell them no more compound risk of any sector's deepest responsibility is allowed and the bbc better reform itself immediately as its the most disgraceful investigative social media business just when it needed to empower journalist to yunus map. Poetic justice: london started terror of global empire rule by macro; london ought to help yunus end it. I am sure that everyne can find their forte on one of the next 6 microsummits which dr yunus wants to become as good at networking humanity as microcreditsummit has this last decade.

    what are the big debates of year 08/09

    With uni year 08/09 starting and a feeling that we are reaching this generation's seminal moment with globalisation 1.0 crashing through Wall Street, foreign assistance agendas being debated around the next leader of the white house, citizens everywhere having big questions about the future of jobs and vocational education -what do you see as big debates of the year and where can we weave them between ned and web?
    Here are 2 possible ways into looking at content which may help us prioritise the biggest questiions humanity needs to dialogue and trasparently search out solutions to.
    In 3 weeks we are sending out a dvd from Dr Yunus to 10000 youth at university clubs and other places. It contains 25 short video conversation starters. These are some of the questions that pilot research over the last 6 months show to be intersting. I am delighted to hear of others or to plan how to link you in a co-host if one of these issues is going to be vital to you over the next year tel 301 881 1655
  • why are macro banks crashing when community banks are the safest in the world; is it the job of a bank to invest in people's productivity or to fuel consumption chaing them to loans?
  • what are the implications of the prediction that youth themselves will have to create the majority of all future jobs in the networked economy; is education preparing people for what's needed in he post-industrial age where pure manufactoring jobs are disappearing as fast as agricultural jobs during industrial revolution
  • what futures does tioday's young generation wish to sustain, and where do they get real share of voice in ivesting in these futures
  • is going above zero-sum market economics possible?
  • microcredit summit is a benchmark for the most successful metwork for and by peoples of the world; DR Yunus would like to see similar action learning summits in such areas as healthy, education, internet and other media for the poor, clean energy water agriculture - are any of these lifelong interests- how can we plant these summits to connect citizens worldwide
  • Did you know that any sunshine state can have a thriving carbon negative economy with solar energy if it replicates what Bangladesh has discovered?
  • Did you know that 40 million Bangladeshi's use mobiles and are leapfrogging whole new service delivery platforms -bricks versus mobile clicks 2.0?
  • This is part of the Clinton Global Initiative Agenda that kicks into full gear tomorrow. Most is webcast live and CGI has a good record of posting up transcripts within a week or so. What questions merit wider debate that Clinton's 500+ guests?
    PLENARY SESSION: The Global Impact of Rural Innovation
    Friday 9/26/08, 9:00 A.M. – 10:00 A.M.
    Metropolitan Ballroom: In today’s society, where technology enables people to connect with one another instantly, it is hard to understand why poor, rural regions around the world continue to face persistent challenges in isolation. To reconcile these inequalities, many individuals, organizations, and businesses are actively addressing education, economic development, energy opportunities, and other vital needs. From the development of alternative-energy technology to implementation of economic development initiatives, persistently impoverished rural communities are developing in ways that can be scaled to address global challenges. This panel will include leaders who are driving innovations that serve rural communities and can be applied around the world.
    Program Participants:
    Jacques Aigrain, CEO, Swiss Reinsurance Company;Steve Gunderson, President and CEO, Council on Foundations; Wangari Muta Maathai, Founder, Green Belt Movement, Kenya; Elsie Meeks, President and CEO, First Nations Oweesta Corporation; Rick Warren, Pastor, Saddleback Church; Muhammad Yunus, Founder and Managing Director, Grameen Bank

    St James YouTube with Dr Yunus


    I am writing to you as celebrator of the Dr Yunus St James Lunch feb 15


    We have youtube videomakers over in Dhaka for the first 2 weeks of July – so we invite a competition of questions alumni of the St James lunch most want to ask


    Assuming they are simple questions to briefly list, it is 90% likely we will be able to show Dr Yunus the questions so he can choose which pattern together something that is now useful to debate from a 2 minute first cut


    Alan Mitchell, friends and I have been asking my father what questions interest him. Since his published curiosity about the future of the net is 25 years strong and about microeconomics from the Bangladeshi perspective 65 years long (he learnt economics in Bangladesh from an Indian correspondence course whilst waiting to navigate RAF planes in RAF) I have put his main questions up at


    They do touch on 3 areas:



    1 How do we help communicate or educate the Bangladeshi brand architecture reality that over 100000 community service networkers (including 25000 at BRAC, Grameen Bank and Grameen Mobile many more from ASA and so on) have been experimenting with social business models for 30 years now (as well as open sourcing worldwide in the case of microcredit)- dad was pretty much heartbroken that it has not been obvious to many book reviewers and economists that social business is not some new idea but as Bill Clinton  says in this video 30 years in the system-proving of how everyone does development economics.



    2 What global market sectors could exponential economics mapping do a more inclusive job of debating future history’s compound risks ahead of time  (this an issue we are in midst of our 3rd annual survey of shareholders of The Economist on)



    3 Is the UK’s number 1 Business against poverty gift to future capitalism reforming public sector broadcast sector or something else.


    I have absolutely no wish to be involved in deciding which questions get videoed this time round. I will publish all I receive. However if you have a question (that may need to be refined by iteration) the priority circulation list to send them to are mostofa who is already in dhaka, mark our videomaker who will be going over in a week and alexis who mentors me on youth/womens issues that obviously people like dad and I are the wrong demographic to explore


    On topics 1 and 2 i believe that Alan Mitchell will have a draft ready of the microeconomist and goodwill auditing mapping book 7 years in the writing. If that interests you, kindly ask him to send you the draft. (see also )
