Generating the Wealth of Nations

Apr 29th 2013
One of most timely courses of year -Foundation for Pro-Youth economics -one day examiners in separate subjects of history and economics will be told to go back to the drawing board- they could best start here- as our futures live in a boderless world, I feel very sorry for students who pay to be examined in anti-youth economics and history told from perspective of isolated nationhood

I am looking for curriculum that lives up to Obama's "bend the curve" on the affordability of healthcare -we are nowhere near liberating the knowledge the yes we can generation was promised back in 2008 but so far this is as good as I can find John Hopkins     Community Change in Public Health  - we are searching hard for people with 12 minutes insights which wish to collaborate especially as Grameen already hosts a real-space 3 year curriculum of free nursing

Have great expectations for Foundations of Virtual Instruction 30 sept 2013 Cindy Carbajal UC Irvine : Learn what it takes to teach a K-12 course online! Investigate the history of virtual education, explore innovative tools, and examine key issues related to K-12 virtual instruction.

    When Khan stands up and talks about his Khan Academy, or I read about him or listen to his speeches- it always come to my mind: we won't need Oxford any more! - the whole world will be one big Oxford, we need only one global university --- the best!?!

     

    2012's Two pro-youth gamechangers in education

     

    • basic curricula can now be distributed to millions of youth simultaneously , free, online - the www.coursera.org  model
    • youth can individually try out exercises online 365/24/7 - these are  designed by topic clusters as per a text book and are linked to training modules - www.KhanAcademy.org  model

     

    please note exact tools, dynamics of both of these platforms and other platforms are changing very fast - for example khan's impact may vary from its basic free service to  swarming skype tutors by practice area around the content it has put up 365/24/7  . To keep uptodate, we offer a monthly newsletter tracking free online education's gamechangers . We also welcome collaboration around a "youtube tag" we call moocyunus

    diary note week minus 1: prelaunch journal of social business

    Dear Sir Keith 

    (also TO's Dr Yunus and daughter Monica; editor and chairman of The Economist; exremely affordable health program director google, grameen intel mobile health program director ; my mentors in healthcare and gandhian global reconciliation paul komesaroff of Monash University and Modjtaba Sadria ex of Aga Khan Institute)

    In a week we launch an academic looking Journal with main editors adam smith scholars in glasgow and dr muhammad yunus. Its actual first audience is 3000 practice leaders, sustainability investors and those net generation youth uniting round the biggest goals of internet which dad scripted in 1984 and only Bangladesh has really been using internet for

    http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html 


    My daughter's 3 minute obituary to norman http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kT9gp7ORiJE  as a 6th generation internationalist scot deternined to reform the accidental system defects of english empire.

    (6g includes uncle davids father's 25 years of being mentored on legal reforms by Mahatma Gandhi; by 1843 our clan's 1g had seen majority of scots emigrate abroad because being taken over by english empire due to international financial scam around 1700 reduced most scots to poverty and was why James Wilson social actioned what he did and his son-in-law work in London' St James entrepreneurially revolutionises English constitution)

    It would be great if zasheem or mostofa could have your postal address to send you (and indeed anyone on this mail!) copy or copies of our first issue of The Journal which we made 7000 copies of as 2011 is the most critical year to turn economic around before dads predicted meltdown of the global market system in 2012 (first predicted in 1972 - for such simple reasons as we in the west no longer have stockmarkets investing in the future of any nations peoples. When economics stops investing in future of youth in any place all of its inter-related professions are not valuable in my family's eyes)


    I am privileged to go over on my 6th trip to dhaka: to see the net generation's heroes dr yunus twice and sir fazle abed once feb 7-9. I will try and ask them of possibilities to converge on special issues of the journal with healthcare being one of the first special issues. As dad's 1984 front cover depicted healthcare whose costs are systemised to go exponentialy up isnt economic for young people anywhere, nor is what wall street and mad avenue are still compounding


    We are looking both for authors and for people who would like to be on the sub-editorial board. Sir Fazle's Abed's BRAC has just published proceedings on replicating affordable village healthcare from a conference 2 years ago - again mostofa can include a copy on that if you would like


    20 years ago jeff devlin put me on a few healtcare projects at the various global management consultancies he worked on helathcare and european union projects selling and reporting; chris granville is my ex sainsbury's/BUPA brother-in-law who these days advises different NHS authorities on purchasing decisions and whose daughter studies history of medicine and dads writings at cambridge; cam is the yunus professor in glasgow of the connections between microbanking, job creation and community health. They were all at dads remembrance party which John and rupert kindly hosted. Sorry it got so crowded that I did a bad job in connecting people


    healthy 2011 to all, just remerging from 48 hours without power in bethesda next door to national institute of health! I wonder what more one can expect of a nation's future that spends more on arms than on civil infrastructures. I look forward to congress testimony on that thanks to 30 years of sams grassroots networks at www.results.org videos of congress's two thirds majority voting on needing yunus now are at the american teenage fan web http://www.grameeneconomics.com  or at Consider Bangladesh

    Peoples Nations Rising - OZ part 1 of 50

    Hi Folk


    Can I introduce you to Zoe of www.10thousandgirl.com -my newest reason for believing australia can be a leading connector of what dr yunus calls (2010s) humanity's and netgen's most exciting decade


    Existing reasons include australia being one of the 3 hubs for www.microloanfoundation.org


    being a metahub for solar implementation over the world www.barefootpower.com  (recently one of the 10? winners of the G20 prize for a micro-social-franchise )


    Jonathan and lesley the two people I connect with most at www.the-hub.net  who have so far convinced 6000 entrepreneurs to start building hubs all over future capitals and vilages globe


    (I should say that the first people who introduced me to The Hunger project www.thp.org were from OZ but I am not sure where they hub out of; also if your micro thing is medicine then I believe I know oz's greatest peacemaker with medicine who hubs out of monash in melbourne- a person who inspired me to join a 500 person gandhian summit in delhi - probably the single most influential large meet for changing me; his daughter is also a great mobilised or youth actions)


    chris


    Zoe - I am an extreme purist on microcredit in that I believe it only fully works when owned by the poorest at community levels; microloanfoudation is really the only purest network that operates microcredits in poor countries (notably malawi) but was founded out of a big capital city london (with 2 extra funding hubs boston and nsw oz) (some would say finca is the other model of that kind). Its true I am a bit biassed - peter is one of 3 people to have  mentored me (and londoners) most on microcredit   - zoe is an avid user of skype zoe.lamont


    To all - zoe's dream and reality is to connect 10000 oz girls (typically in their first jobs ie 18-27?) to be more (or as) knowledgeable than anyone else in australia both about their own financial plans and about microcredit; and to invite other countrie sto emulate oz's 10000 girls (zoe elase edit if I've mis-trsnalted)


    Mostofa is editor of consider bangladesh - a viral leaflet designed both by youth and yunus-partnering leaders around Bangladesh's 40th year- whether there would be any chance of returning human reason to economics without bangaldesh is extremly doubtful from what I know about economics

    is usa better investor in africa than china? 2011 obama to visit africa - but where? tour of positive democratic models

    does anyone have idea on how to get consider kenya-africa brochure out as companion to consider bangladesh -where are the 5 most positive citizen-villager rising visits and sustainable investment models?


    HONOLULU – President Barack Obama is quietly but strategically stepping up his outreach to Africa, using this year to increase his engagement with a continent that is personally meaningful to him and important to U.S. interests.

    Expectations in Africa spiked after the election of an American president with a Kenyan father. But midway through his term, Obama's agenda for Africa has taken a backseat to other foreign policy goals, such as winding down the Iraq war, fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan and resetting relations with Russia.

    Obama aides believe those issues are now on more solid footing, allowing the president to expand his international agenda. He will focus in Africa on good governance and supporting nations with strong democratic institutions.

    Obama delivered that message on his only trip to Africa since taking office, an overnight stop in Ghana in 2009, where he was mobbed by cheering crowds. In a blunt speech before the Ghanaian parliament, Obama said democracy is the key to Africa's long-term development.

    "That is the ingredient which has been missing in far too many places, for far too long," Obama said. "That is the change that can unlock Africa's potential. And that is a responsibility that can only be met by Africans."

    The White House says Obama will travel to Africa again and the political calendar means the trip will almost certainly happen this year, before Obama has to spend more time on his re-election bid. No decision has been made on which countries Obama will visit, but deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said stops will reflect positive democratic models.

    The administration is monitoring more than 30 elections expected across Africa this year, including critical contests in Nigeria and Zimbabwe.

    "The U.S. is watching and we're weighing in," Rhodes said.

    John Campbell, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and a former U.S. ambassador to Nigeria, said the different elections give the Obama administration the opportunity to establish clear policies.

    The administration "should be less willing to cut slack when those elections are less than free, fair and credible," Campbell said.

    The White House can send that message right now as it deals with the disputed election in Ivory Coast and an upcoming independence referendum in Sudan, which could split Africa's largest country in two.

    Rhodes said the president has invested significant "diplomatic capital" on Sudan, mentioning the referendum in nearly all of his conversations with the presidents of Russia and China, two countries which could wield influence over that Sudan's government.

    When Obama stopped in at a White House meeting last month of his national security advisers and United Nations ambassadors, the first topic he broached was Sudan, not Iran or North Korea. And as lawmakers on Capitol Hill neared the December vote on a new nuclear treaty with Russia, Obama called southern Sudan leader Salva Kiir by telephone to offer support for the referendum.

    White House officials believe the postelection standoff in Ivory Coast could be the model for Obama's stepped-up engagement in Africa.

    The president tried to call incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo twice last month, from Air Force One as Obama returned from Afghanistan and then a week later. Neither call reached Gbagbo; administration officials believe the Ivorian leader sought to avoid contact. So Obama wrote Gbagbo a letter, offering him an international role if he stopped clinging to power and stepped down.

    But Obama also made clear that the longer Gbagbo holds on, and the more complicit he becomes in violence across the country, the more limited his options become, said a senior administration official. The official insisted on anonymity to speak about administration strategy.

    Human rights groups have accused Gbagbo's security forces of abducting and killing hundreds of political opponents. The U.N. says it also has been barred entry from two suspected mass graves.

    Rhodes said the White House understands that U.S. involvement in African politics can be viewed as meddling. But he said Obama can speak to African leaders with a unique level of candor, reflecting his personal connection to Africa and that his father and other family members have been affected by the corruption that plagues many countries there.

    Officials also see increased political stability in Africa as good for long-term U.S. interests — a way to stem the growth of terrorism in east Africa and counterbalance China's growing presence on the continent.

    The U.S. was caught off guard during the 2009 climate summit in Copenhagen when several African countries voted with China and not the U.S., the administration official said. The official said the administration must persuade African nations that their interests are better served by aligning with the U.S.

We can survey whether that’s the case of all economist shareholders or not as we have been since I requested help to do this at be the change 2005 The case for freeing global markets to transparently value sustainability and integrating as maths people do from details up not global standards downyunus puts it like this (red text) in his speech to india parliament earlier this month The social business is a non-loss, non-dividend company dedicated entirely to achieving a social goal.  (If your head knows this system design works it will never be the same again in how it manages or brands or action learn teamworks anything- the world's most purposeful organisational systems can be designed, innovated and collaboration partnered this way) The wonderful promise of social business makes it all the more important that we re-define and broaden our present economic framework.  We need a new way of thinking about economics that is not prone to creating series of crises; instead, it should be capable of ending the crises once for all.  Now is the time for bold and creative thinking—and we need to move fast, because the world is changing fast.  The first piece of this new framework must be to accommodate social business as an integral part of the economic structure.  AND something I realise about you sofia -like many of the greatest open space facilitators -  is unless you feel the game's language is as much you as anyone else (even yunus) you wont use compared with other stuff you are spinning (in other words I might as well spend the next 5 weeks getting on with a book than assuming we will get a gameboard brochure that is yours as much as anyone's in the world) actually one of my biggest problems is the labeling the CP12 and particularly the label that is most you which I am provisionally calling  CP11 DigiYouth Pervasive job creative culture

    the sustainability games opportunity to choose cp11 in language that unites way yunus perceives this value multiplier, the way you identify london creative labs, the way that tech wizards including tav can use technology for the poor as well and the worldwide to collaboratively create a billion jobs the big news of 2008 was the opening of the nobel museum in dhaka which tav you and I saw  - the first use of nobel name outside nordica and the fact that the nobel judge spoke to 1000 bangladeshi youth congratulating them on being in on the epicentre of digiyouth culture -the yellow nobel grameen leaflet Isabella and I have asked you and mostofa to curculate 100s of round london this is where all kazi and yunus stories on the majority of future jobs will have to be created microentrepreneurially by youth not by an education system that says if you come top of some obscure set of historical exams that now cost 250000$ for harvard to administer to you and put you in permanent debt - there will be global-down top jobs waiting for you; as kazi said even those in bangladesh that go to university find there are few jobs for them  -or as yunus says in his speech to indian parliament  LISTEN TO YUNUS IN INDIA AGAIN ON DIGIYOUTH CULTUREGrameen Bank encourages children of Grameen families to go to school.  It offers education loans to them to pursue higher education.  There are more than 42,000 students who are currently pursuing their education in medical schools, engineering schools, and universities financed by education loans from Grameen Bank.  We encourage these young people to take a pledge that they will never enter job market to seek jobs from anybody.  They'll be job-givers, not job seekers.  We explain to them that their mothers own a big bank, Grameen Bank.  It has plenty of money to finance any enterprise they wish to float—so why waste time looking for a job working for someone else?  Instead, be an employer, rather than an employee. Today, Grameen Bank is a nationwide bank serving the poor in every single village of Bangladesh.  It has 8 million borrowers, 97 per cent of whom are women.  The bank is owned by the borrowers.  Nine of the thirteen members of the board of directors are elected by the borrowers as shareholders.  Grameen Bank lends out over $ 100 million a month in collateral-free loans averaging about $ 200.  Poverty Belongs in Museums
    Every human being is born into this world fully equipped not only to take care of himself or herself, but also to contribute to the well being of the world as a whole. Some get the chance to explore their potential, but many others never get the chance to unwrap the wonderful gifts they were born with. They die with those gifts unexplored, and the world remains deprived of their contribution.

    Grameen has given me an unshakeable faith in the creativity of human beings and the firm belief that human beings are not born to suffer the misery of hunger and poverty.
    We can create a poverty-free world if we collectively believe in it—a world in which the only place you would be able to see poverty is in poverty museums. Some day, school children will be taken to visit these poverty museums.  They will be horrified to see the misery and indignity that some human beings had to go through. They will blame their ancestors for tolerating this inhuman condition for so long

    Putting Today’s Powerful Technology to Work
    The world today is in possession of amazingly powerful technology.  That technology is growing very fast, becoming more powerful every day.  Almost all of this technology is owned and controlled by profit-making businesses.  All they use this technology for is to make more money, because that is the mandate given to them by their shareholders.  Imagine what we can achieve if we use of this same technology to solve the problems of the people!

    Technology is a kind of vehicle.  One can drive it to any destination one wants.  Since the present owners of technology want to travel to the peaks of profit-making, technology takes them there.  If somebody else decides to use the existing technology to end poverty, it will take the owner in that direction. If another owner wants to use it to end diseases, technology will go there.  The choice is ours. Present theoretical framework does not give this choice. Inclusion of social business creates this choice.

    One more point to ponder – there will be no need to make an either/or choice.  Using technology for one purpose doesn’t make it less effective for serving a different purpose. Actually, it is the other way around.  The more diverse use we make of technology, the more powerful it gets.  Using technology for solving social problems will not reduce its effectiveness for money-making use, but rather enhance it.

    The owners of social businesses can direct the power of technology to solve our growing list of social and economic problems, and get quick results.
     Social business gives everybody the opportunity to participate in creating the kind of world that we all want to see.  Thanks to the concept of social business, citizens don't have to leave all problems in the hands of the government and then spend their lives criticizing the government for failing to solve them.  Now citizens have a completely new space in which to mobilize their creativity and talent for solving the problem of our time. Seeing the effectiveness of social business governments may decide to create their own social businesses or partner with citizen-run social businesses, and/or incorporate the lessons from the social businesses to improve the effectiveness of their own programmes.

    Governments will have an important role to play in the promotion of social business.  They will need to pass legislation to give legal recognition to social business and create regulatory bodies to ensure that transparency, integrity, and honesty are ensured in the social business sector.  They can also provide tax incentives for investing in social businesses as well as for social businesses themselves.
     During the current financial crisis, the falsity of the old assumption became even more visible. While big conventional banks with all their collateral were collapsing, microcredit programmes, which do not depend on collateral, continued to be as strong as ever.  Will this demonstration make the mainstream financial institutions change their minds ?  Will they finally open their doors to the poor?

    I am quite serious about this question.  When a crisis is at its deepest, it can offer a huge opportunity.  When things fall apart, that creates the opportunity to redesign, recast, and rebuild.  We should not miss this opportunity to redesign our financial institutions.  Let’s convert them into inclusive institutions.  Nobody should be refused access to financial services.  Because these services are so vital for self-realization of people, I strongly feel that credit should be given the status of a human right.
    The more time you spend among poor people, the more you become convinced that poverty is not created by poor people.  It is created by the system we have built, the institutions we have designed, the concepts we have formulated.  Poverty is an artificial, external imposition on a person.  And since it is external, it can be removed. YunusForum Social Action Business team slogan approved by yunus: impossible becomes possible when right people time place action(sofia as first anchor woman of social business ) From micropublishing world citizen collaboration entrepreneur guides since summer2006 I think you and I know darn well that youth epicentres of cp11 are around yunus (begum-islm), around you, lucknow, taddy blecher, new zealand, sanpatrigano, kenya's jamii bora, some harrison owen alumni, Eva Vertes in medicine, hopefully CSUCI LA etc though I am not sureanyone has mapped where the tech-youth epicentres (probably parts of china and bangalore) joyful new decade to you & londoners players of sustainability boardgameschris macrae 301 881 1655 isabellawm family foundation skype isabellawm Entire Education in the world must be concerned with the affairs of the age - luckNOW
