welcome to - celebrating 1000 best for world microfranchises of #2015now #2030now


Happy 2015 - we've reached yunusbook club 2000's 7-year goal : mapping 1000 best for the world social businesses but now we are looking

for co-publishers eg 5 billion person elearning satellite, 4-hemisphere nanocredit partners of women4empowerment, continent wide youth entrepreneur networks eg 1 debriefing leaders panama april 2015

- see eg and and   If you cant find what you are looking for email - what market are you trying to change - please specify type of service, national or cultural issues, plus any other details of what's missing from village infraructure of poorest you are seeking to empower 

While we admire the maths elegance of the strict definition of social business advocated by Muhammad Yunus and MY2.1, we have decided to stick to the broader definition

of microfrnachise in our 1984 book- a life changing service designed for open source replication across poorest or most challenged communities where value

of production is sustained wholly or mainly in the community 

My family would like to thank Muhammad Yunus for making the 7 years since we first met him in dhaka at change of year 2007/2008 the most interesting of our lives.

It never occurred to us back in 1984 that (instead of www collaborations celebrating every optimistoc rationalist of net generation ) one human could out of poorest 100 million person nation twice aim to linkiin 100000+ village markets around 60 poorest mothers per market- first in the pre-digital village with no electricity, no running water, little or no roads or communications- and then in 1996 lead those villagers to linkin parrnerships with the webbed millennials and the most extraordinary technology humans have ever collaborated around . We are extremely glad that the goodwill of poorest village mothers was networked around ehalth and education before it started offering them the lowest cost job training scheme any peoples have ever been credited with. Bravo Dr Yunus For different reasons we would like to thank my dad's longest running dinner host George Soros, Gorbachev, various Japanese ambassadors, Sir Fazle Abed the greatest sustainable franchiser we ever expect to meet, with the exception of those extraordinary young health networkers paul farmer and jim kim without whom we would not in all honesty be able to express happy millennials' year #2015now #2030now

Innocent question in Budapest June 2013 (20th open society laureates celebration) - out of Haiti, will Mirabelais become the gravity of themost collaborative global health -and economical gtraining - network in the world?

Paul Farmer - yes for sure, but when we cant tell you

To see why he ad such faith, look at live reporting from the Ebola fields by his heroic co-workers

 Elizabeth Glaser replied to a discussion in Global Health Nursing & Midwifery:


Hi Maggie, that was from my first blog entry; here is the second entry on the same page, it was written as a result of listening to my colleagues, nurses Audrey Ferguson, Marie Kalal, Farrah Kashfipour, Sandy Sheble-Hall and our physician, Joel Adelson, then integrating our shared experiences into a team report.

Update from Liberia: Chasing the end of an epidemic

December 10, 2014--When our family, friends, and co-workers speak of our presence in Liberia, they tend to believe that we spend all our days swathed in personal protective equipment (PPE), but that is not the case. While it took a leap of faith to come here and face the epidemic that was portrayed in the media, the reality of the situation forces us to shift our expectations; life in Liberia is returning to normal.

People are building roads, discussing elections, and trying to choose a date to reopen the schools. They are focused on the future but remain cognizant that the outbreak is not fully over. Staff posted at buildings in Monrovia still politely ask us to wash our hands with 0.05% chlorine solution while checking our temperatures, as do the guards we encountered along the remote frontiers with Côte d’Ivoire and Guinea in Grand Gedeh, Nimba, and Bong counties; their vigilance will continue until the country, and perhaps the region, is declared Ebola free.

At this stage, our work on the ground in Liberia is less urgent but no less important, as the national Ebola response shifts from an emergency to a methodical effort focused on extinguishing hot spots in order to end the epidemic once and for all.

What, then, is the role of Partners In Health nurses and doctors as we try to chase and capture the tail end of an epidemic?

Our team has worked in conjunction with Last Mile Health (LMH) to train health care workers to respond to cases that may present at remote clinics near recent Ebola hot spots.

The health care workers are supported by the county health teams (CHT), who have set an example of dynamic leadership and support for direct care providers during the epidemic. The public health teams and health care workers that we have met are smart, engaged, and informed, but they simply lack physical resources. In these very rural areas of Liberia, staff need to be capable and creative in the face of tremendous constraints. A CHT member described standing on a neighbor’s roof or any local high point to get a phone signal; others travel by canoe and motorbike to visit isolated clinics, and each health care worker does whatever has to be done to track down potential Ebola cases and their contacts.

LMH understands the unique challenges faced by rural health care staff—Dr. Amy and her crew worked with our PIH team to cover 18 of 19 clinics in one week, during which 100 local staff were trained in personal protection and infection control practices.

Along with the LMH trainings, our team was very fortunate to assist staff from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) in training Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County health care workers and hygienists in infection control and personal protection practices. We were humbled by the comprehensiveness of the course offered by the men and women of the DoD. Over five days, participants who had never worn PPE had progressed to efficient teams delivering care through four Ebola scenarios during a nearly two-hour final practicum.

While training and access to resources slowly improve, change within any health system cannot happen overnight. Long after our team is gone and the epidemic is over, PIH will be working in conjunction with the government of Liberia and Last Mile Health to rebuild the health system and increase the capacity of local staff to meet community needs beyond Ebola.

At first, my clinical colleagues and I wondered about what to say to our co-workers and families back home, as infection control training is not as dramatic a role as delivering care in an Ebola Treatment Unit. But as we prepare to leave, we have come to understand that our work is equally as important, for as the epidemic dwindles, every infection averted brings us one step closer to eliminating the disease.

Liberia is so very close to achieving victory over Ebola; let's hope it can be realized soon and forever.

Elizabeth Glaser, Audrey Ferguson, Joel Adelson, Marie Kalal, Farrah Kashfipour, Sandy Sheble-Hall are Partners In Health-recruited clinicians who have responded to the Ebola outbreak.

I also posted this to the Ebola response community.
Finished class today. Leaving for Liberia on Thursday, arriving Friday night. The CDC instructors did a very interesting training session where we cared for a patient that was tagged with dye only visible under UV light. Of course we did not know that the patient was tagged. After completing the session ( we thought) and spraying down, we were then brought into a dark room; the areas that would have been in contact with the very ill ( and thus highly infectious) patient glowed blue under the UV light. We then doffed our gear and checked again to see if there were any areas that glowed while only in our scrubs. There were splotches while in the gear, but fortunately none on our skin or scrubs. However if I had inadvertently touched the outside of my suit during removal , it could have gone differently. Just one error and we could be exposed. It was a very sobering demonstration.

What a great demonstration. Take care and have an incredible time. It will move you, frustrate you and will change you forever.
Look forward to talking when you get back and giving you a VERY BIG HUG
PS I hope we all disseminate the truth that no matter how good the protective equipment is health care workers are taking a risk to care for highly infectious patients. This needs to be respected and honored. There will always be someone who gets infected - that is simply the way and they should not be blamed but recognized for the risk they took to help others.

Yes, you can appear to do everything according to the protocol and still get exposed , however, adhering closely will greatly reduce one's risk. After we removed our gear, we got a chance to walk another student through doffing . It takes a lot of patience , excellent communication skills and good problem solving to guide a tired overheated person safely through decontamination.Debbie has mentioned that the hygienists have such a huge role role, and our exercises brought that message home. It is very much a team situation where we have to trust in our buddy and the other staff to keep each other safe. 

I want to give a shout out to the teaching staff from the CDC and the Public Health Service. Our teachers included a number of people with direct experience with Ebola. They clearly were very invested in our welfare. They encouraged us to consider signing up as teachers when we return as they want the course to prepare providers for the actual experience as much as is possible. 
 Elizabeth Glaser started a discussion in Global Health Nursing & Midwifery:


Got into Monrovia Friday night. The hotel has wireless, so I though I should post as I am able.

In another thread in the Ebola Response community, Diane mentioned an article in NEJM that came out this week:
"Clinical Care of Two Patients with Ebola Virus Disease in the United States"

Below are suggestions from the NEM article on fluid replacement , whether ORS or IV fluids. The link to the supplement is relevant as it shows the overall I/O for both patients. The take home message is below. Please provide comments or considerations, especially from the field,, do the recommendations jibe with your observations? :

Aggressive hydration is important,but patients must be monitored closely for third spacing - vascular leak syndrome, including pleural effusions.

Accordingly, adjustment of fluid replacement based on patient respiratory status.

There are changes in a number of electrolytes, particularly hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, hypomagnesium and these electrolytes shifts must be taken into consideration when using ORS and IV solutions:

Commercial sports drinks may increase the risk of hypokalemia.

Oral rehydration solution recommended by the WHO contains some potassium.

Most intravenous fluids recommended for rehydration do not have substantial levels of potassium, calcium, or magnesium.

The authors recommend supplementing oral rehydration with oral potassium, calcium, and magnesium, especially in patients with large-volume diarrhea.

Draft extract - what would americas millennials  and the world uniquely miss without last 3 years of social movements round youth entrepreneurs across americas and world class epicenjtres of global social value

MAP What would millennials world uniquely miss without (purpose, solution knowhow, heroes)

NB beauty of collaboration best is see a better (more sustainable case) , lets all linkin through open education channels and eg women4empowerment's networks- if you at yabt/ticamericas were newspaper : best collab news of all americas- correspondents of what from where?


without yabt: Americas continent-wide celebration and nurturing of entrepreneurs of  social progress

-did luis mention top 20 progresses over last 12 years?


how do we at DC's/UN's investment crossroads swap this americas millennials best for world processes with others millennials experiences (eg inside world bank young africa society most networked and Africa has world lead potential in open education (eg Yazmi/Blecher/Kenya Digital Empower) ; however over two thirds of in poverty millennials in Asia whose 4 greatest advances for world in last half century are not openly celebrated -japan quality; bangladesh end poverty- china expat trading supercities; MA and sustainability futures )



how does moreno/blum global poverty curriculum innovations map look like compared with:

moreno-columbia  (blum major san francisco axis to south; kim/farmer - boston axis)


haiti - world class hospital Mirabelais and open curriculum of health services for poorest- potential with brac and pih to integrate health and banking impacts on livelihoods (the bangladeshi empowerment miracle)-


peru -world class experience of end MDR tuberculosis (also origin of revolutions in local health beyond who's governed standards and pharma value chains for the peoples - ie jim kims unique influence on health and world bank millennials, and adeveloped world capable of ending ebola! )


jamaica - branson school of entrepreneur- links to the main missing curricula of 21st C schooling s.african partners of freeing entrepreneurial education (literacies of finance, entrepreneurship, coding, empowerment of loving self) have discovered over last 15 years- also open source tech youth hub linking in around world


brazil - best west coast partner to 500 startups and 500 women

brazil - clearer leadership involvement in education on peoples future of water (other Bula initiatives - BRICS - blending entrepreneurship at world social and economic forums); potential to raise moreno and kim debate why do we celebrate sports more than social heroes- can we twin fame? eg kims pop start for african development is Dbanj- who is americas?


mexico - best future of city by and for citizens lab; conditional cash transfer process (eg now also major world bank mechanisim in tanzania)- historically mexico was Borlaug's crop science lab (father of all western feed the future movements; brac remains east's main source)


argentina- pope leads world vision of public service  ( history's catholic culture imprints across continent and mother languages includes Brazil's Freire inspiring sir fazle abed; liberation theology inspiring paul farmer) -world partner connections through rome nobel peace laureates

Liberation theology is a Christian response  to the conditions of poverty in Roman Catholic theology which interprets the teachings of Jesus Christ in relation to a liberation from unjust economic, political, or social conditions

san fran next where in americas to partner? leverage what puddle and kiva see as next step of digital financial inclusion

where do DC-based pro-youth investment lead decsion-makers come from? peru luis, roby argentina, moreno columbia, Giugale Mexico, Marcel Chile -who else? who's panama's leading pro-youth connector? who else in OAS?






Valuing millennials - which have most economic impact in your nation?


Health- historically greatest impact on a developing economy comes from raising life expectancy from world's low thirties to at least high 50s. Moreover places ith lowest life expectancy are also greatest risk of gestating plague around borderless world

Tech and open education- Keynsians have forecast since 1970 that designing job creating education will make millennials most exciting time (conversely job destroying education will put human race at risk)

Green and local energy/agriculture


History shows that wars are root caused by too fast population movement from rural to city. Consequently every way rural and green entrepreneurship can be locally celebrated is critical

Professionals - in dialogues with Gandhi, Einstein forecast that the greatest risk to future sustainability would come from professionals ruling over lose-lose systems at a time when higher order win-win systems were needed

Budding superstars- tv mass media replaced famous people for doing good with famous entertainers. To remedy this millennials can value superstars to twin with community-sustaining heroes. Budding superstars merit their own education to twin with a life impacting mission. F4D Parallel issue of ending irresponsibility of fashion sector

Bankers of microfranchise models - those which can free global value chains greatest locally sustainable value

 FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE - The Peacemaker's Ultimate Role?

What 21st C youth need to know about UHREP -Uniting Human Race Ending Poverty


FREEING MARKETS & NETGEN Why 98% of human being's networking can action learn more from the market purposes of the 1% poorest than the 1% richest. Rsvp if you can link practical or systemic curricula of Capitalism millennials exponentially value most


The practical proof of this is go observe what the poorest want from banking , health, education, energy, public servants and commons infrastructures. And if you agree with their purposes free knowledge partnership around them -the so-called social business economy that emerged out of the new nation of Bangladesh from 1971 and has since 1996 leaped frogged over pre-digital market constraints through poor's freeing of mobile telecoms, cashless banking and clean energy

OPEN SYSTEMIC UHREP - Uniting Human Race End Poverty

 For over quarter of a millennium UHREP has been valued as greatest systems challenge by:

hi-trust economists -eg adam smith scotland since 1758, Keynes 1930s

ecologists -ie those who recommend our species value natural capital's botom-up and open system rules of sustainability

peace-loving mediators of social action eg Gandhi S.Africa & India since 1906, James Wilson London-Scot since 1843,  Emperor Hirohito since 1946, Bangladesh part 2 since 1976

mathematicians Einstein with Gandhi 1930s, Von Neumann with computers since 1950s

educators -Gandhi with Montessori, Bangladesh part 1 since 1972 

So as world banker and partner in health connector JIm KIm says : the good news is almost everyone can help millennials free markets


However the bad news is that starting after world war 2 the west's use of mass media subliminally declared war on the next generation- instead of capital being structured so that family savings invested in next generation's livelihood, instant gratification became a way in which elder generations extracted more and more from the futures of youth until we now have lost generations with nthing left to generate. This is tragically absurd. Open technology can make millennials livelihoods ten times more productive and collaborative than ever before but anti-social mediation is big brothering us towards futures the one percent of biggest decision-makers choose at the expense of the 99% of the rest of us. The only way I can think of to change this is open eucation of all the missing curriculum and purposes that now need to be freed before the first ever generation to design systems conoeting with nature's planetary scale irreversibly destroys the livliehoods of most of our grandchildren

 Our History could yet invite the most valuable open youth brand architecture in the world if and only if it twins capital cities where leaders and youth co-create millions of jobs and charter how to race to millennium goals such as that proposed in 1984 as ending poverty by Norman macrae which Bangladesh in its first 42 years has innovated more open sourced  more grassroots networking microfranchises than any where else on the planet . The developing world has many million jobs creating cities but Dhaka was unique as a capital where investments of the poorest created most of these jobs. Atlanta is committing to a 2 year collaboration exercise with youth to linkin million job creation -the yunus network concerned with this is the 501 Foundation Yunus Creative Lab. This is nothing to do with the only other social business to officially represent the Yunus name. We look forward to open reporting of this journey by every Capital where youth wish to linkin to job creation and millennium goal collaboration races

Under certain circumstances the 100% Social Business model is optimal for sustaining future purposes of charities, foundation, aid - and potentially citizen contracting to serve communities from tax funds that would otherwise be administered top-down . In the 100% model there are no dividends, no equity appreciation by investors (unless they are the poorest) but retainership of the reputational gain and if a sustainable business model is found retiun of original investment capital This is the only model officially endorse by Muhammad Yunus


In the 51% Social Business model the only change is that up to 49% of the equity (I approximately one doubling of wortjh) may be retained by investors or founders Some digital wizards might find that they can innovate eg more social media by giving away 51% of the equity to be linked into a millennium goal. The 49% can then ensure they have enough capital to buy up talent or partnering digital corporations instead of being underfunded in ever bigger media  or technology battles that may be involved

Next Capitalism- out of the Economist in December 1976 my father Norman macrae launched the quest for next Capitalism- one that 20th century largest organizational systems would be elast competent to compete wherever botto-up and collaborative value neeed to be expoenetially sustained. We love to disuss both social business models and any models that mediate the most pursposeful a sector can be in the future of worldwide youth job creation and planetwide sustainability




Yunus Social Business 100% model aims to compound the most purposeful inter-generational models.

good for -value chain transforming aid, foundations that want to sustain unique goal of their charity, real priviatisation (ie community service takes back tax and nationalised industries

world class cases - the origin grameen bank in bangaldesh, the original grameen energy in bangldesh, potentially the free nursing college - which sees nurses as 21st C most trusted vilage informatuon networker as well as basic health services providers

 Lessons from First 150 Years of The Economist @ Bangladesh

My father Norman Macrae (aka The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant) was probably the last major journalist to be mentored by Keynes. He developed a cluster of pro-youth economic terms over half a century at The Economist and in his 1980s surveys of how the net generation needed to co-create 3 billion jobs that had never been seen  before including : Entrepreneurial Revolution (coined 68, celebrated eg by romano prodi 76 and bill drayton 78 and another 100 leaders of job creating entreprenurship)Bottom-Up Economics, Gross World Product (requiring in a borderless world a very different maths and professional valuation from adding up Gross Nationals Products). When he met Bangladeshis leading pro-youth economists in his last few years he was as overjoyed as when he met Japanese economists in the early 1960s. In his lifetime only the Japanese valued pro-youth economics sufficiently to nominate Norman for the Nobel Prize of Economics.


Social Business modeling merits being Bangaldesh's major world trade in a knowledge betworking 21st century. It is also future history's key to the door to all father's future surveys that started in 1970s and foresaw Asian Pacific Worldwide Century.



In 2010s, we live in a time -that keynes alumni dreamed of as a 2 million global village networked economy -  when any nation can be designed to collaborate in empowering all youth to be at least 10 times more productive than ever before because of the millions time more collaboration technology available to the net generation. But as the 20th C leading mathematicians (Von Neumann, Einstein) had warned only if all peoples simultaneously learn to design multi-win models instead of zero-sum exchanges. New educational technologies and new forms of energy are the only areas in human history that empower such advances of the human lot but the good news is that unlike ever before the human race can now help youth lead abundant innovations in these areas if only we invest in such hi-trust collaboration (open systems) entrepreneurship.


And this all unprecedneted social opportunity starts with whether we are going to free children in our schools (eg see new zealad's first 30 years of collaboration round to innovate the most exciting future purposes that any skill they study could serve as we map what new millennium goals our human ace values most. Do you want a world where a child can be born anywhere and have a fair chance of growing up health and productive. That's the world's my dad's ;life work mapped- and which places empowering youth social business competitions now celebrate.

My journalist friends have been studying job creating ideas/leaders for net generation since 1972 when dad started the genre of Entrepreneurial Revolution in The Economist. We think we know who owns the main webs and journals of social business - but tell you the truth we dont know what to do with them. We had wanted an open portal where business models could be catalogued by youth in terms of trusting their job creation race towards 3 billion new jobs dad first catalogued in 1984.

For two thirds of a century, alumni of The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant have chartered the most purposeful organisations and entrepreneurs - those resolving life cfritical and shaping needs.  We are redesigning this web around 3 main most distonctive models generating extraordinary human progress.

Pure Social Business

This is the model (fully owned by the poor or in trust for the poor) pioneered in Bangladesh since 1976  It brings sustainability where charity alone cannot. It requires the most heroic and selfless types of leadership we have ever encountered. Ir demonstrates how uneconomic western banking models of getting people in debt are when banks could be issuing credit to invest in people's prodyctivity. 

51%+ Social Business 

This model gives away one doubling of a founders equity at the early stages. This is done to anchor the organsiation's heroic purpose, and may in itself compound far more extraordinary wealth over the years than being chained by a majority of owners with no specific purpose. In knowledge markets with plenty of value multiplied in use (unlike the way scarcity comes into consuming up things)

Hi- Trust Business Purpose 

In some regions of the world, we meet people who say trust us- its hard enough (with eg speculative competitors or uneven laws) to building the region's most purposeful sector leader served by and our region's peoples.  Also included here are organisations that inspire us but whose ownership details are not fully known by us.

 Ending underemployment: SB owned microcredit banks - GrameenBRAC. Many of its fastest growing replications are now in Africa - see eg Jamii Bora(Kenya), MicrloanFoundation (Malawi) as well as example of extraordinary corporate responsibility wholeplanetfoundationArguably the greatest innovation of our era- microcredit networks bring income generation to over 100 million mothers in developing nations and ensuring their children break generations of illiteracy and ill health. Ask for list of true microcredits  -warning many falsely governed microfinances exist and spin vicious impacts. Digital cash: MPESA  bkash

rsvp to vote for the worldwide's number 1 application of social business

- here's why a main contender is employment (or income generating) agencies owned by youth and the most underemployed

 looking east ,as part of researching yunus 5000 youth ambassador project and his 69th birthday wish dialogue dhaka june 2009, we discovered that both brac and grameen (and as far as my research shows all microcredits originally to be celebrated at 1997 microcreditsummit) were fundamentally employment agencies owned in trust for those who were most underemployed, and their next generation

in grameen's case the idea was what 60 job clusters can poorest in every village sustain if they also own the financing, community market and knowledge hub

in brac's case the idea was to redesign whole sectors so that every job in the whole sector chain payed more than a living wage and the whole sector channel was owned in trust for the poorest, and sustainable development

some interesting employment social business agencies which mobile tech could now connect:

matching those with grameen secondary scholarships -132537 issued up to May 2011

matching those with grameen university student loans - 48768 issued to may 2011

matching the 3500 world citizens leaving gandhi family's world's favourite schooling system each year

matching any youth who has interned at bangladeshi microcredit over last 3 decades

once these ideas are ready in concept form they should be debated with jack ma as he can whitebox any number of replications of virtual employment agencies, and technologists leading bank a billion's ownership of transactional protocols as owne by the peoples not by big banks or govs

I wouldnt send my daughter to a usa university unless it convinced me it had an employment agency owned in interest of youth and all professors were examinable to it

Probably the most timely valladolid treaty which queen sofia and los indignados could call for can extrapolate on above idea development;  and say that all european countries students should unite through an association of youth owned income generating agencies/portals and withdraw from voting for any political party or using any media that does not listen to their ideas on restructuring european nations which need to be diametrically oposite from moodys rating agencies- as for sacking professors who dont help them in that effort , roll it on- adam smith was very strongly against education certificates being owned by any top-down group especially government or higher ed cliques (clearly the the greatest uneconomic error in higher education and part of western government's pervasive disinvestment in youth and thus quintuple did recession through 2010s unless changed now)

Breaking Newws : Norman Macrae Foundation - Ning   Youth and Yunus   Journal of Social Business

All business models are designed around 3 main factors that explain whether there will be coninued growth or bubbled collapse

Is there a positive cash flow model that can be openly probed for robustness of unique purpose against future scenarios? - without a positive cashflow model , proof of value is missing; we believe that entrepreneurship only exists where transparent positive cashflow models are mapped  what is done with the surplus from each accounting period?- in social business- no dividend is paid out externally ; all is revinvested in the purpose- that is partly because those who funded the social busiess agreed the purpose was that life critical or extraordinarily valuable who owns/stewards the equity? on this question the whole theoretical basis of economics (the subject Keynes' work proved would increasingly rule the world depends) - ie is economics a discipline aimed at investing in youth and leaders developing each place's sustaianability , or is it the tool big brothers (Hayek's Ftal Conceit) use to own and engame the world in ways that conflict with nature's evolutionary code

Aravind’s purpose is ending unnecessary blindness. Its SB model is 10 times more economical for poorest. It has streamlined the way that the laser surgeon and paranurses work so that about 5 times more surgeries are done per surgeon than by any other cataract surgery. The paranurses are trained from girls in the village being a wages win-win for the girls and Aravind. It asks that patients pay what they can afford up to a a maximum which is still two thirds less than cheapest eye surgery. Through this means, up to thirds of patients get their operation for free. Restoring eyesight multiplies both social and economic value. Conceptualisation in India, Aravind “borrowed” world leading advice from Larry Brilliant who was working for neigbouring NGOs. Its franchise has now been open sourced beyond India with Muhammad Yunus making several replications, the first of which were funded by the socially responsible Pop Group The Green Children whose songs brought additional joy to the Nobel Prize ceremony.

Grameen – National

The bank that wasn’t a bank

Sustainability Olympics SB Summit















Grameen’s purpose is ending poverty –  a broken system which up to a third of the world’s children are born into.  Bangladesh was itself born as world’s poorest nation in 1971 after a bloody war of independence with Pakistan which had until 1946 been part of the colonisation of India.  Nowhere have entrepreneurs had such impact in building a nation as Bangladesh. At the epicentre of this is Grameen : the greatest job creation system ever designed. After 7 years of trial, Dr Yunus and his 4 co-founders formalised the first social business , constituted by a Bangladeshi law of 1983,   the Grameen Bank owned by the poorest


The bank that isn't a bank also offers a free market space and a knowledge hub for every 60 villagers – today there are over 125000 of these Village Centres serving the 7+ million members of Grameen. Grameen’s 10-win model needed 7 years of testing to discover such values as : its poor women owners primarily wanted future investment and Grameen’s innovative leadership to be focused on their children’s development. Thus the bank was designed both to be income generating for its female members and to bring health and education to their children who would otherwise have perpetuated illiteracy.  With customers and owners united in investing exponential rising purpose, working for Grameen, as 25000 people now do, is a joy. As Grameen local branch staff come to every Village Centre once a week, they experience first hand the micro ecologies of banking, marketing and knowledge networking interfaced with each other to maximise sustainable use of local and human resources. And this experience generates micro up entrepreneurial dynamics that compound 10 times more economic performance locally than any macroeconomist could begin to plan. For example, consider Grameen’s development of clean energy – since 1996 energy systems have been meticulously interconnected in a natural way that now makes Grameen Shakti a world benchmark installing more solar units than the whole of the USA. Another application showing how micro up and collaboration system design make light of networking age is the 1996 investment that Grameen made in mobile telephone ladies. What the villagers led, the whole of Bangladesh followed – there are now over 40 million mobile networkers with a world epicentre in digital infrastructure and smart media’s job creation for the poor


After a third of a century, Grameen has established the largest case bank of examples where microeconomics is ten time more economic than global top-down can be. It has played a core role in microcreditsummit since its launch in what has become the benchmark for summits that set heroic goals (reach 100 million of the poorest with microcredit in under a decade. Grameen has received prizes from various royalty and Dr Yunus is celebrated as a worldwide hero with the 2006 Nobel Peace prize. More remarkably, Grameen offers a paradigm for freeing the global market of banking to be sustainable.  


Young people see the social business model as the job creation way ahead. Worldwide citizens can now  hub around microentrepreneurial centres and help NGO’s and others change over to the recyclable social business dollar co-creating the most purposeful organisations ever designed and sustained.

200 BRAC BRAC is the largest collaboration network of social businesses in the world. It is reaching 110 million poor people annually. Its grassroots service networks are active in 70,000 villages in all of the 64 districts of Bangladesh, reaching an estimated 75 percent of the entire population. Its health programs serve more than 92 million people, its microfinance programs assist more than 7 million borrowers, and its education programs reach more than 1.5 million children. Today, the organization generates 80 percent of its $485 million budget from its wholly owned social businesses. Case  In recent times it has also been replcating to selected Muslim countries internationally.

BRAC has computerized its entire microfinance program so that it could more closely monitor all of its loans and curtail ineffective practices. At the heart of its banking businesses is one of Bangaldesh’s 3 mainstream rural microcredit programs. It has also IPO'd a city bank that increases BRAC's own funding ( in a similar way that Grameen mobile in cities became a major source of funds)

207 BRAC’s New Program for the Ultra- Poor, which currently serves 132,000 women. The focus group revealed that some of the poorest families in Bangladesh could not participate in BRAC’s microfinance program because they did not have the wherewithal to borrow and repay.“They needed grants rather than loans,” says Abed. And so BRAC designed a program that would “hold the hands” of Bangladesh’s poorest 10 percent by giving them grants and stipends for the first two years of their participation, he says. Then, most of the clients “graduate,” becoming full-fledged microfinance borrowers.

BRAC Integrated dairy Businesses

209 in 1990, BRAC DAIRY.  began making microloans to poor women who wanted to raise milk cattle. But when Abed met with one of the program’s borrowers, she revealed that she was having a hard time getting the milk to market, and that even when she could, she received only one-third of the price that milk sellers received in Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital. So in 1998 BRAC established the BRAC Dairy, which primarily purchases and markets the milk that its microlendees produce. To collect and process the milk for the dairy, BRAC has set up 80 milk chilling centers across Bangladesh. The BRAC Dairy and milk collection centers employ more than 500 people. In 2007, the project generated $1.15 million in surplus cash, which was enough not only to support the workers and dairy farmers, but also to expand operations. The BRAC Dairy is also becoming increasingly competitive with other Bangladeshi dairies: Its market share increased from 20 percent in 2006 to 35 percent in 2007.

210 BRAC created an artificial insemination (AI) program in 1998. BRAC operates one bull station and a network of 70 storage facilities across the country, training more than 1,000 AI workers. These workers not only deliver high-quality semen and inseminate cows, but also provide wrap-around services such as vaccination, pregnancy diagnosis, and calf delivery. BRAC pays the workers a fixed fee per insemination, which means that the more work the AI worker completes, the greater is his income. BRAC’s AI program generated $60,000 in profits in 2007. At the same time, it not only granted job skills and income to people across Bangladesh, but also supported the microentrepreneurs, dairy and chilling-center employees, and consumers—many of whom are also poor—further down the value chain.

211 BRAC Integrate Broiler Processing,InBangladesh, approximately 70% of landless rural women are directly or indirectly involved in poultry rearing activities. The poultry and livestock sector accounts for approximately 3% of the country's GDP . BRAC's poultry programme is composed of several components:  poultry farms and hatcheries, feed mills, feed analysis and poultry disease diagnosis laboratories .The programme was started in the early eighties to protect poultry and livestock from disease by developing skilled village-level poultry and livestock extension workers (paraveterinarians).We produce and distribute good quality day old chicks as well as poultry, cattle and fish feed. To date, 2.1 million people have been involved in this programme.

203 Back in 1974, BRAC’s first social business began in media. It emerged from a printing press that supplied books and other printed materials to the organization’s schools and education programs. Owning a press was a way to cut printing costs and to reclaim the profits that the profit-extracting sector would have taken. It also enables BRAC to open up the future relevance of  schools curricula and cultural evolution. Currnet annual profits from this business wholly reinvested back in BRAC are over $300,000 annually.

Aarong helps 65,000 rural artisans market and sell their handicrafts and has become the most popular handicraft marketing operation in Bangladesh. Its brand is as fashionable as any a for-profit corporation can offer.

BRAC’s Sericulture programme  in 2007 has built up to more than 7,500 silkworm rearers and 5,800 spinners. They  have been engaged in producing a total of 212 metric tonnes of silk worm cocoons and 21 metric tonnes of raw silk.

 5 things Social Business is
  • IS The most exciting entrepreneurial designs and sustainability investments ever played
  • Capable of integrating every child's hope so that there is no impossible gap between I have a dream and if its goodwilled enough to fit my god-given entrepreneurial capability I can network its reality
  • Capable of sustaining an abundant human race through a yes we can transparency of economics and professional oaths that takes societies way beyond zero-sum constraints, shortages and bubbles- how can it be that this new technology has not yet made end poverty this generation's space race on earth?
  • Joyous, hi-trust connecting people's most enthusiastic energies at work in every way that communal pride and individual passion mustered by a purpose wholly worth serving can authorise
  • The best investment in rising exponentials that societies can gravitate round through time and so ensure a better inter-generational lot
  • ...sustainabilityg.jpg5 things Social Business is Not
  • NOT party to compounding any of the risks nor any of the sustainability investment errors that 20th century pre-networked systems compounded -be these charity or corporate, gov or Non-gov, world elite institute or extremist action cell

The good news and the bad news is that all sustainability crises begin and end with this mathematical and governance error.

    True or False : SB Entrepreneurs often aim to invent systems with 10 times more economical impact for communities

    Answer True

    Let's dispel a few potential misunderstaings. My experience of journalism on entrepreneurs since 1976 shows that there's no more demanding/exciting entrepreneurial challenge than that of SB. If a sponsor is going to give you a free loan, it is likely that they are not just expecting you can do it but that they want to be associated with something important. There's lots of life critical need for 10 times more economical models out there - so who's going to do it if not the SB entrepreneur?

    These days technology may be one of the 10 times more economical door openers; historically SB modellers have also needed to solve a conflict as well as provdie a solution. Going ahead with an idea however logical but not knowing what local conflict also needs to be resolved is not smart, and makes failure very likely . However if we can turn an exchange that has been a lose-lose-lose one into a win-win-win one- that alone increases the prospect of celebrating 10 times more economical outcome. For example when dr yunus started allocating microloans it was to village women who were just making a livelihood even though they were financed by loansharks. In other words these were some of the most productive people on the planet and when they free to keep far more of the value of their own productivity they also wanted to invest in their children. So now wonder there was a long rising exponential to develop.

    There are quite a few places you can search to see that sustaining 10 times more value through a generation is possible if you develop the most pursposeful win-win-win systems. Collins & Porras found this in Built to Last; Kay has also found this. And this was in service or industrial economies. Peter Drucker has argued that compared with such 20th century productivities, knowledge networking age economies can lead to 50 times more productivity provided we develop models where the value of human knowhow multplies through the workers experience and to and from from society and customers they serve.

    Grameen is comfy that it cn take 7 years to plant a social and value multiplying revolution before take off is likely. This is how long it took for the bank itself between 1976-1983, and how long it took for another superstar innovation - Grameen's clean energy business. While the start was steady in 1996, Grameen now installs more solar units than the whole of USA.

     I find it absolutely fascinating to look at catalogues of social business models; arrange into a group those with 10 times more economical impact . For each case, work out how they did it. This is some of the most exciting work any analyst can be blessed with doing.

    Q1 TRUE or FALSE: The SB model is the most widely tested model of job creation dynamics in knowledge networking economies

    Answer TRUE

    Of course if you can show us another model we will welcome comparisons - eg Glasgow is launching 2 journals for this reason. 

    There are many pieces of supporting evidence:
    1) the maths of SB is the most win-win-win that large systems have ever been audited by 
    2) Grameen is the number 1 job creating system esign of our net generation not just because it is a bank that makes loans only for productive communal purposes but it is configured around over 100,000 village markets and knowledge hubs owned by those most energised to work for and invest in youth. It is freeing global markets to vlue every most vital sustainability need -and rising exponential- that humnas can wish for.

    Since 1996, Dr Yunus investment in mobile communications has been the compass for the most exciting innovations in knowledge networking economics. Grameen Telephone, centred on village networking economics, grew in under a decade to be not just Bangladesh's largest telecom but its largest corporate tax payer. It is inspring both China nd India to rce to undertand the most life critcal knowledge economies of ange when everyone is mobile connecting where the cost for empowering this is built round my father's lte 1970s futures detailing of Death of Distance in The Economist . 

     Since 2005, when  leading organsitions such as global consumer goods, banks, utilities and universities in France,  asked Dr Yunus if they could partner in such knowledge networking economics experiments, the dynamics that enabled Bangladesh by itself to become a world leader in new industruies such as green energy are now being unleashed in evary global market sector whose elders choose to experiment with integrating the changed professional maps that are needed to exponentially sustain knowledge networking economic models.  Glasgow University, home to Adam Smith archives is taking the lead in open sourcing student curricula of this new economics - as 500 people who attended the July 4 global assembly in 2010 can help you mutiply knowhow round http://grameeneconomicslab.com  

    Further Background
    My father's entrepreneurial revolution trilogy in The Economist 1976-1984 culimnting in our 1984 booki clrified why it is vluble for people to model 3 different prdigms of econoics:
    that where the unique value multipliers are mainly in the physical product - ie industril age

    that where value multiplication is mainly difefrentiated and sustined by people -ie service economy ; by 1976 the mjor deloping ntions hd most of their GDP dependent on service sectiors but professions mngers used hd not been chnged to model this

    that where the value of any organsitional system only grows if the value grows to its external stakehodlers - eg customers, societies - knowedge multuplies value in use;  it is only if we understnd this model that the 2010s will be the decde when humn productivity expoentlly rises - 10 fold within a generation in my father's estmtes nd 50 fild within 2 generations in Peter DRucker's estimates

    Answer -4) all

    Q Which of these do Social Business Networkers aim to do?


    1) Celebrate the most purposefully designed organisations in the world


    2) Make the 2010s the most exciting decade to be alive


    3) Design an economics is best for young people and can accelerate achievement of any sustainability goal that the majority of the world wants


    4 All of the above

    1 Most Purposeful Organisations: Purposeful organisation has been my main search & practice since 1990- I am helping form a club of 100 professionals committed to innovate their own professions in support of stockmarket that only includes built to last companies that are prepared to be exponentially audited for win-win-win purpose  ; there are various ways of making the case for this claim; I am interested in mathematical explanations - email if you are;  you can virtually or actually visit social businesses and make your own mind up - we regularly help people tour Bangladesh the origin of social business entrepreneurship in the early 1970s -in effect the inventor of privatiztion done to sve the futuresof poorest children; we network with people who help arrange leadership quest of SB in other regions; Glasgow is launching 2 journals for understanding impact of social business; Paris, Glasgow, Dhaka nd New York already have youth clubs scaling into the many thousands helping teachers change curricula to be SB inclusive ; DR Yunus's second book on social business focuses on inviting partnerships to design solutions to most pressing needs; I have collected feedback on purposeful design from 1000 readership networks of each of his books on the Social Business genre.     Dr Yunus is dedicating the rest of his live to helping everyone who most wants to make the 2010s most exciting decade- as he says in the 1960s we only had a moon race, today we have a sustainability race for earth and all earth's peoples. My father reported for The Economist for 40 years. As early as 1976 he began a series on entrepreneurial revolutionmapping why 2010 would be the decade or irreversibility regarding how the net generation chooses to globalise. Dad's 85th birthday's wish was to map all microeconomists who can help dr yunus free markets to value sustainability. We re forming Norman Macrae Foundation with Glasgow University in search of that living wish.  
    Dear Andrew
    Father wanted me to try and start up a journal with Glasgow University and Muhammad Yunus on the economics that invests rising exponentials around youth and job creating community and collaboration technology, which seems to have gone missing from the way globalisation is spinning.
    We want to invite the world to make 2010s youth's most exciting decade with Scottish youth taking an entrepreneurial lead ; and Scotland has become the first country with 2 universities signing up partnerships with yunus in continuously staging this invitation
    You delivered a lovely paper on Hayek in 2005
    Would it be possible for us to reprint this in our new journal?
    Of course. Print away. And I hope my Alma mater is being obliging.

    AravindNurses Job Creation***  *         **
    Aravind’s purpose is ending unnecessary blindness. Its SB model is 10 times more economical for poorest. It has streamlined the way that the laser surgeon and paranurses work so that about 5 times more surgeries are done per surgeon than by any other cataract surgery. The paranurses are trained from girls in the village being a wages win-win for the girls and Aravind.

    Additional notes from Entrepreneurial RevolutionJournalists

    The fourth quarter of the 20th century began with 2 amazing simultaneous happenings:

    1. The Economist declared the 21st century would need to be led by a yet unknown system design - the exact opposite of image-led mega-corps. In 1976, it was already clear to economists who value systems' compound exponential futures that too much tv ad spots destroyed all the assumptions of Adam Smith's free markets including transparency of government (who could call 2008's Wall Street and congress transparent players in the market of global banking?), and the uneconomic habit of spending ever more of consumers money on ads designed to nag, addict and image over reality of what is actually being offered.
    2. The missing system of sustainable economics - some call the world's greatest invention, and Dr Yunus modestly calls social business - was emerging in Bangladesh in many many micro applications of which the most famously branded would become known as Grameen. The whole branding truth compounding Grameen onto a global stage as the last quarter of the 20th century ticked by was that over time it took on the global market of banking and demonstrated 10 times more economic banking could be communally sustained in main village - let alone main street. Better still it did this applying the greatest mission a brand has gravitated its purpose around - the human race to end poverty.

    However when Dr Yunus was belatedly awarded the Nobel Prize in 2006, he stunned opinion leaders by giving a speech not about Grameen microcredit banking but social business modelling being the system design solution that is needed to solve every sustainability crisis. It was to take the Danone-Grameen global partnership between a world's most resourced organisation and a most dedicated grassroots network serving life critical needs - to show youth's worldwide networkers that global social business can economically reform the sustainability of global media -just as Grameen microcredit is to this day benchmark for sustainability of 10 times more economics in the global market of banking

    What urgently needs to happen as we enter 2010s if net generation is to renew wholeplanetsustainability is: enough global brand ceo leaders recognise that global co-brand partnering the world's most sustainable knowledge centre (Yunus Centre in Grameen) is the best ever global media ever offered - one which can turn their global brand's valuation into the sustainability leader of its global market. This will finally put to rest the greatest maths mistake ever made in free marketing's good name - that when brand valuation algorithms came from nowhere in the 1980s because 5 global accountants had a goodwill black hole to fill in their balance sheets and ad agencies were delighted to oblige provide the brand valuation went up the more costly its ad budget!

    I am not sure if this host newtork is up to it but the idea sound one with a future

    Dear Group Administrators,

    We have some exciting news we’d like to share with you: 

    Imagine if anyone could access and repurpose the largest directory of environmental and social justice organizations in the world. Recently, members of WiserEarth launched a fundraising campaign to make the rich information on WiserEarth accessible to an even wider audience. Community leaders Leif Utne and Jon Warnow appealed to a broad group of organizations and people to collectively fund the development of WiserEarth’s “API”, which will allow organizations around the world to access and display WiserEarth’s organizations, resources, events, and jobs through their own websites. The “OpenWiser” project hit the ground running, convening an all-star group of organizations and raising over $2,000 in just under a week.

    Yesterday, the organization Civic Actions announced that they will match any donation up to a total of $500 in the next 24 hours towards's goal of raising $10,000 to fund the completion of the Wiser Earth API.  We invite you to join the first fundraising effort led entirely by the WiserEarth community.  

    In their outreach efforts, the organizers invite us to “imagine being able to have the greatest database of social change organizations ever assembled pumping through your group’s site, opening up new opportunities for collaboration. Imagine being able to show your users what organizations and individuals are already active in their area, just waiting to be mobilized.” 

    Visit the fundraising campaign page and join the effort to open WiserEarth’s “digital doors”!

    Turning part of a star's production company into a social buiness and other good news celebrations

    Hugh Jackman reports:
    , I sat down with Muhammad Yunus in Los Angeles. He's now advising us on how a certain portion of our production company can be set up to operate like his bank. He's a bit like the Dalai Lama—he's fighting at the front line of poverty, and you couldn't find a happier guy. But he challenges you: What can you do? Not just send aid, but how can you change people's lives from the inside?

    Well, that one book completely revolutionized my way of thinking and what my company can do

    Muhammad Yunus is the happiest banker i have ever seen because he knows Grameen only grows when its customers grow. Since 1984 we have recommended recognising this win-win interdependence as a defining diffference between knowledge economies and all lower level ones that humans have been to have been chained to in the past. Even so it astonishes us to look at 2 decades of global banking that has spiralled negative-sums onto its customers by chaining them in debt; and whose nonsensical claims to be competitive are exposed by the fact that not even one big bank in the west recognised the  innovation opportunity of going 10 times lower cost by focusing on the basic services main street needed.
    5:47 pm edt 

    In rich cities, many branded categories have got so crowded with competing offers that the customer is paying more for all the advertising noise than any other component. Grameen-Danone the world's first consumer brand to be launched from a future capitalism social business partnership needs no such spends. Its a one of a kind healthier quality lower cost product than any kid's nutritional offer in Bangaldesh village markets or quite likely anywhere.

    Another case is Grameen Shakti's solar energy. Its CEO Dipal Barua told me the last thing we will ever need is television advertising. This product flies by word of mouth and visibility. As soon as one person has a solar cell proudly on top of their roof, everyone wants one. I have to say that I find solar panels quite a miracle wherever I am but if you have never had any electricity before and your only light is some kerosene fire, the magic of solar is in words of villagers to become a participant in the modern world. And over the typical loan period that Grameen structures the cost of solar becomes less than kerosene as well as healthier for all the family and setting a trend the world will need to fiollow if global drowning is carbon is to be averted. Microenergycredits aims to be the first to link up a quarter of a billion zero carbon households and I doubt if any of them will have bought a product that needed tv advertising.

    Social Business Picks, from Ira Jackson, Claremont (Drucker's Business School)

    Whether it's the Grameen Danone Foods, the Transforms Corp. in North CarolinaEthos Water founded by Claremont native Peter Thume, New Leaf Paper (whose paper production plants are the only in the world powered by 100percent renewable energy sources and which is starting to transform a gigantic industry that is also one of the most polluting), Rubicon Industries (which employs homeless people and battered women and others with serious disabilities to work in their for-profit bakery, which sells successfully to outfits like Costco and Williams Sonoma), the Rabobank Group in the Netherlands, Upstream 21 in Oregon or Spain's Mondrag n Corporaci n Cooperative, the day of mission-driven companies has arrived, and these new hybrid alternatives to the old for-profits will one day be as pervasive and successful as the traditional types of companies.

    As Drucker well knew, we will all be better off when principle trumps profit. (Curiously, that's exactly what Henry Ford had in mind when he founded Ford Motor Co. It wasn't his desire to get rich; it was his dream of helping to create a middle class in America that powered his vision. When he raised the daily wage of his workers to $5 a day, in fact, he was called a communist by other capitalists. Why did he do it? Because he wanted his workers to be able to afford the cars they produced - and he wanted them to have pride in the product that they created on the assembly line. As Ford said so simply and wisely: "Business must be run for a profit, else it will die. But when anyone tries to run a business solely for profit, then also it will die, for it no longer has a reason for existence.").

    A BRAC survey found low levels of understanding about anatomy and reproduction, personal hygiene, fertility and pregnancy, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among youth age 10-15.

    In response, in 1995 BRAC developed a reproductive health Rural Service Delivery Program (RSDP) with a special focus on poor youth, ages 10-15, 70% of whom are girls. The RSDP establishes informal schools that provide 3 years of primary schooling to adolescents who have never attended school. After graduation, students can join Grade 5 in the formal schooling system. Monthly reproductive health sessions are integrated into the regular school curriculum and include topics such as adolescence, reproduction and menstruation, marriage and pregnancy, STIs, family planning and contraception, smoking and substance abuse, and gender issues.

    The adolescent program builds on BRAC’s social development approach designed to address the needs of poor rural communities. BRAC’s strategy mobilizes communities to support social change by taking the following steps:

    1. Identifying social groups and mapping existing formal structures or networks. In many rural areas, networks include adult males, religious leaders, teachers, and the parents and extended family of children. BRAC also recruits and trains female volunteers who become the nucleus of a social network of women.

    2. Building trust with the community by providing something to meet their perceived needs. In most communities, BRAC starts a credit program that involves the poorest of the poor in economic activities to alleviate poverty.

    3. Developing fora around social networks to engage in dialogue with the community. Key elements of developing effective community fora include 1) identifying appropriate actors; 2) recognizing and responding to communication patterns and behavioral cues that exist in the community; 3) building cultural beliefs about the authority and reliability of the information provided in the forum; and 4) using fora to strengthen existing positive relationships within the family and community.

    4. Within community fora, exposing members to new ideas, involving them in problem solving, and encouraging "risky innovations." As forum members are taken through this process, they become advocates for the program approach by integrating program objectives into their own lives and value systems.

    It was through the process of community mobilization that BRAC was able to establish the RSDP program for adolescents. We engaged communities in an evolutionary process that introduced new ideas, such as schooling for adolescent girls. Through dialogue, community members could then address more sensitive issues such as adolescent reproductive health. As a result, BRAC has established 175 informal schools in 4 districts. Each school provides free schooling for 30 students, at least 70% of whom are girls; the teacher is recruited and trained from the village where the school is established. Major strengths of the RSDP program include:

    • Emphasis on parental and extended family involvement. Through monthly parent meetings, BRAC has fostered parental support for the program, and in some areas spurred the start of informal adult education for adult family members of adolescents.

    • Influencing community norms. BRAC supports norms that encourage girls’ delayed marriage and continued education through community fora and outreach.

    • Communication between boys and girls. Since reproductive health is built into the regular curriculum, the program allows boys and girls to discuss reproductive health together, and builds communication skills for opposite-sex relationships.

    • Continued programming. The school is used for a library for youth who have graduated, providing a space for young people to gather in an environment with supportive resources.

    BRAC program planners have identified several elements as key to the success of the RSDP program; namely, BRAC has:

    • established "exchange relations" with the community so that people recognize the benefits and opportunities for engaging in programs such as the RSDP; staff are then able to add on program innovations incrementally.

    • introduced a feedback loop so that as the program gains experience, it has the capability to use that experience to reflect on what it has learned and implement innovations in the program. Program staff have been involved in data collection, and are encouraged to reflect on evaluation results.

    • worked in the domestic and the public domain simultaneously. For example, while female staff can effectively engage women in dialogue at the household level, involving male community leaders who interact in the public domain has been crucial for program sustainability.

    • developed simple, correct messages on the new ideas BRAC introduces so that communities are able to understand and integrate them into their own lives.

    Finally, program planners have identified the following future needs for the RSDP program:

    1. An assessment of the reproductive health curriculum found that youth thought the curricula should be focused more on reproductive health and sex education than "family life;" that environment and drug abuse issues should be discussed; and that contraceptive methods should be demonstrated. The evaluation also found that peer networks should be strengthened through the program, that teachers need more support to teach the curricula and that youth wanted interactive teaching methods such as role plays and drama.

    2. Understanding and documenting the dynamics of community involvement, and the shifts from community resistance to social action, is needed. Documentation of how BRAC is able to communicate about sensitive issues would allow replication of the program and further diffusion of social action.

    3. BRAC has anecdotal evidence that people exposed to one aspect of the program become agents of change, and involvement or exposure to several interventions may expedite the changing of social norms. Developing indicators to capture this "snowball" effect would help track the program’s evolution as new innovations are added.

    Prospectus Aug 5th 1843 From The Economist print edition

    Final Clause of Prospectus

    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 (james came from hawick in Scotland where his family of entrepreneurs manufactured top hats) 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 our forefathers for witchcraft.

    Rest of Prospectus
    And now we beg to submit the following detail of the plans which we have thoroughly organised to carry into effect these objects of our ardent desires, in the following
    of a weekly paper, to be published every Saturday, and to be called
    which will contain—
    First.—ORIGINAL LEADING ARTICLES, in which free-trade principles will be most rigidly applied to all the important questions of the day—political events—and parliamentary discussions; and particularly to all such as relate immediately to revenue, commerce, and agriculture; or otherwise affect the material interests of the country.
    Second.—Articles relating more especially to some practical, commercial, agricultural, or foreign topic of passing interest; of the state of the revenue, foreign treaties, &c.
    Third.—An article on the elementary principles of political economy, applied in a familiar and popular manner to practical experience; especially in relation to the laws of price—wages—rent—exchange—revenue—taxes—and the relation between producers and consumers abroad and at home; proved and illustrated by the experience of this and other countries.

    Fourth.—PARLIAMENTARY REPORTS: Giving at greater length all discussions peculiarly interesting to commerce and agriculture, and especially involving the principles of Free Trade.
    Fifth.—POPULAR MOVEMENTS: A report and account of all popular movements throughout the country in favour of Free Trade.
    Sixth.—GENERAL NEWS: A summary of all the news of the week,—the Court—the Metropolis—the Provinces; Scotland and Ireland.
    Seventh.—COMMERCIAL: Under this head a careful and elaborate account will be given of the trade of the week; with special notices of changes in fiscal regulations; state and prospects of the markets, especially indicating the progress of stocks and consumption; of imports and exports; latest Foreign News, likely to influence future supply; the state of the manufacturing districts; notices of important new mechanical improvements; shipping news; an account of the money market, and of the progress of railways and public companies.
    Eighth.—AGRICULTURAL: Under this head we will give frequent articles on improvements in agriculture; on the application of geology and chemistry; on new and improved implements; and in every way, to the utmost of our power, assist that true and independent spirit which is everywhere rising among the best landlords and farmers, to rely on the only safe support agriculture can have—intelligence, ingenuity, and perseverance, instead of deceptive protection. We will give a general detail of incidents, state of crops, markets, prices, foreign markets and prices converted into English money; and we have made an arrangement to communicate, from time to time, in some detail, the plans pursued in Belgium, Switzerland, and other well-cultivated countries.
    Ninth.—COLONIAL AND FOREIGN: In which we will furnish the earliest information respecting the trade, produce, political and fiscal changes, and other matter interesting; and, particularly, we will endeavour to expose the evils of restriction and protection, and the advantages of free intercourse and trade.
    Tenth.—LAW REPORTS: These we will confine chiefly to such as are particularly important to commerce, manufactures, and agriculture.
    Eleventh.—NOTICE OF BOOKS: Confined chiefly, but not so exclusively, to such as treat of the foregoing subjects; including all treatises on political economy, finance, or taxation.
    Twelfth.—COMMERCIAL GAZETTE: Price currents and statistics of the week.
    Thirteenth.—CORRESPONDENCE, INQUIRIES, &c.: Under this head we especially invite every one to apply for information on all the topics herein enumerated, which we do not furnish, or which is not given in such details as may be required. We have made an arrangement by which inquiries shall be replied to in the next number, if received by Thursday morning, on all subjects enumerated in this prospectus:—POLITICAL ECONOMY AND COMMERCE; FOREIGN COMMERCIAL REGULATIONS; TARIFFS, RATES OF DUTIES, AND PORT REGULATIONS; EXISTING COMMERCIAL TREATIES; POINTS OF COMMERCIAL LAW; GENERAL STATISTICS, connected with our trade for the last twenty years, or earlier, when they exist; AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS AND IMPROVEMENTS; and on other practical and economical subjects required.
    EXTRA MONTHLY STATISTICAL AND PARLIAMENTARY PAPER NUMBER:—In each month we will publish an extra number, devoted exclusively to statistics, and the preservation of the statistical parts of documents laid before parliament; many of which, of great value, never at present reach the public eye, or at least in a very limited way. There can be no question that, whether we speak of the economist, the legislator, the merchant, or the trader, statistics must form the most important ground-work of the whole of his reasonings, opinions, and actions; they are, in short, the fundamental facts on which all his opinions and actions must be based to be true; it is difficult to estimate their importance. At the same time we must remark, that however powerful and useful they may be as an instrument, they cannot be used with safety without considerable knowledge of the peculiar subjects, and without the exercise of great discretion in drawing results. This we will endeavour to aid by explanatory notes and observations in the collection and arrangement. Our plan is,—to divide this monthly number into two parts, one for permanent statistics, in which we will commence and collect together in alphabetical order the statistics of our revenue and trade, including exports and imports, navigation, agriculture, and currency for the last twenty years:—the trade with our colonies, and of our colonies with each other, and with this country:—and various interesting statistical statements which we can get relating to the same subjects in foreign countries: the other part we will apply to the statistics of the day: the comparison of our trade, imports, exports, consumption, stocks, &c., of all the leading articles of commerce, between the current year and the corresponding period of the preceding year: and other matters useful and interesting to the material interests of the country.
    And at the end of each year, we will furnish a title-page and general index to the whole paper, including the statistical numbers, so that the whole may form a useful volume of reference to the economist, the politician, the merchant, and manufacturer, the agriculturalist, and the general reader.
    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.

    The Stories

    Bangladesh’s First Third of Century of worldwide Gifts –Part 5 Future Capitalism Stories (aka ABC part 3)

    1 Bill Gates doesn’t get FC yet but he will have to when he is serving epicentre of world's richest foundation

    2 FC goes beyond global aid (white man's accidental top-down burden) by empowering instead of powering over

    3 Unlike charitable dollars that get spent up, FC circulates the social business dollar whose investment is endlessly recyclable

    4 FC partnership strategy is about seeing birth of world's most miraculous innovations- when a world's most resourced organizational system partners an organization that's closest to serving life critical needs on terms designed to sustain lives

    5 Anyone can debate FC since its like a game of win-win-win snap : what if that most powerful producer and that most efficient server connected to sustain the greater purpose they could never reach separately

    6 FC is about goodwill media and freer global marketing than using billon dollar ad campaigns the way that global profession wrongly figured when they first invented brand valuation algorithms (1988 The Economist Year of the Brand) and thus spun away from whole truth until even global banking collapsed

    7 FC's greatest practitioners love making global waves so that local people can freely and happily surf the web from the bottom-up 

    8 FC's language restores the original meaning of "entrepeneur" (s)he who transfers assets to make more jobs than s(he) takes. Unlike the French whose FC1.0 used the Bastille, FC2.0 is economics’ most peacefulentrepreneurial revolution

    9 Scots like Adam Smith (who late 1700s coined the term free market) and James Wilson (who 1843 founded The Economist as an ER medium to end corn laws and capitalism's punishment) will be cheering from their graves. They had wanted to end imperialism not to global bank it. Their hi-trust reasoning was rooted in what happened in 1700. Scotland became the first nation in recorded history to be bankrupted by an international banking scam. The consequence was the hostile takeover by England Euphemistically calledUnited KingdomLondon's early global accountants were dispatched to explain why royalty's taxes would value sheep as more profitable quarterly than people.

    10 A consequence of "United" Kingdom was that by 1850 most Scots had emigrated- Scotland thus evolved as one of the first nations whose majority were www entrepreneurs not geographically tied to any one homeland. You will see that Scots have often figured in media (eg invention of the tv) and “free and happy” governance only to find this the greater purpose their lives had intended to invent got viciously reversed wherever the Master of Business Administration ideology took over from Yes You Can Collaboration Entrepreneurship and love of Micro-Up Communally rising gravity.

    To University of California, Channel Islands

    Please could you pass this message on to Julia Wilson


    I am very interested in your university's news announced by Julia Wilson (reproduced below). In Dec 07, I started a 1000 bookclub around Dr Yunus book on social business models. To date I have met Dr Yunus briefly on 7 occasions and have been helping him link together youth institutes and those developing SMBA curricula. My professional side involves how to scale up good news global brands and collaboration partnerships at next to zero cost by multiplying goodwill.

    we have made 10000 dvds on social business franchises Grameen leaders are developing for free circulation to students

    dr yunus is hosting a special youth and educators dialogue in dhaka on june 23 where we will bring results of various projects such as

    trying collaboratively to assemble 1000 links to social businesses

    coding frame for 5000 youth ambassadors between bangladesh and anywhere needing sustainability franchises -a project that bangladesh villager Mostofa Zaman was asked to develop by Muhammad Yunus at last year's  microcredit summit in Bali

    news of pitching to publishers need for an annual Future Capitalism Yearbook with primary contributions from 3 editorial sections: the world's 10 deepest epicentres of microcredit; youth's 10 most supporting networks of Bangladeshi's replication models; experts on how to debate turn of decade crisis issues to turn them into Yes We San opportunities

    mapping back how to prepare content to socially network youth social action audiences of the blockbuster yunus movie due in about 15 months and the empowerment album of thegreenchildren pop group due in about 3 months

    My father is a microeconomist who was deputy editor of The Economist over 4 decades. Our 1984 book forecast that if globalisation is to develop sustainably, 30000 micro-up replicable franchises would need to be identified through connecting a reality tv program hosted by a nobel laureate and internet searches; we see the next year of yes we can movements and trying to restore community banking as the most urgent crossroads our generation faces

    Please tell us if our networks may be able to connect/collaborate with yours in any way. I live in Washington DC but quite happy to travel over your way if a visit would be relevant

    California State University, which claims itself to be the largest university system of the world, will establish a Social Business Institute (SBI) in its campus in the United States. 

    Modeled on the structure of the Grameen Bank of Nobel laureate Dr Muhammad Yunus, the institute will work for global awareness on sustainable peace, social, cultural and economic cooperation and harmonious relationships. 

    The university authorities will undertake a number of initiatives including producing low cost drugs, quality research, cultural exchange, economic cooperation in the USA and other countries, said Julia Wilson, vice president of the university, at a press conference in Dhaka yesterday. 

    Wilson is now in Dhaka as the leader a delegation of the university on a mission to gather practical experiences on social business and Grameen Bank activities. 

    Like Bangladesh, there are also poor children in the United States who need to be enrolled in schools and SBI will work in this regard, said Wilson. 

    The institute will also organise scholarships and exchange programmes for the students of Bangladesh and USA who will gather experience and work on social business in both the countries, the press conference was told. 

    The university authorities want to raise the fund from the US corporate houses to run the institute.

    Mostofa (re planning green revolution networks; future capitalism year book; youth dialogue june 009; and a collaboration of knowledge around return to safe banking)
    Let's meet at top of south kensington tube unless you actually know a cafe in the area - its actually not that far from bangladesh embassy and imperial college but I cant remember specifically where cafes are. I would like your comments on countdown newsletter 17- what other sections does it need to have and can we translate it into the one page document you need
    I also want to check several ideas so they get simpler to interconnect across youth yes we can and micro up cities
    1.0 management missing genre published: do you have any news on whether the publication on innovations in collaboration networks being printed in dhaka will be ready for you to pick up on your spring break trip over to dhaka
    1.1  In view of yunus girls support networks message from davos on the prmary importance of womens health in future capitalism and two thirds of grameen scholarships, we need to prioritise sorting out that aspect of internship that selects those who are coming cos of interest in social business helathcare instead of traditional ; moreover our dc epicenter of youth at GWU a great teaching hospital as well as where obama launched yes we can; and the wife of boston 1000 meetings host Marriah Star being at Harvard medical school; and with womens networks being the specialty of our new york youth's epicenter that Dr Yunus met at the Sheraton towers meeting you kindly arranged for Alexis Rachel and peter
    10000 GOOD NEWS 4-5
    youth entrepreneurs - the secret of grameen inside 
    mother of microcredit since 1974
    1.2 also regarding dr yunus brief on bangla5000. do I need to phone mrs begum to:
    to ask her as head of training and mother of microcredit for help to get access at least to recent interns emails; we could send them a survey type email where we ask them to report on one page on any project etc they are doing that has been influenced by interning and which they would like bundled up into one collection of projects to be given to dr yunus as part of youth dialogue ; if grameen can start this survey we can ask whether brac and asa want to join in same process since I understood dr yunus instruction you at Bali to start registering 5000 bangla youth ambassadors at the level of his national brand strategy collaborating across all collaboration knowledge your wonderful nation has networked in its first third century of leading micro-up and collaboration economics as well as millennium goal practice and celebrations
     2 do you know which Londoners we are meeting in a collaboration cafe/pub after the geo talk on solar energy revlution sponsored by the sainsbury family's (one of the 3 main families with sharehldings in The Economist) ashden network, and where
    3 It is fortunate and tragic ironical that the entrepreneurial network reality of slumdog millionnaire is a mobile grameencredit replication in kenya.  
    4 I also need to update you on an emerging map of what excites sam daley harris most (beyond slumdog millionaire storytelling being viralised) over coming months on his road to microcreditsummit columbia which mercifully completes 14 days before youth's road to dhaka; he mentioned that next years microcreditsummit is in Africa (cool to know ahead of time -desperately need to find a youth group that want to do a quest to jamii bora and ingrid munro 10000 dvd)
    5.1 another concept I want to rehearse with you is publication of an annual yearbook on future capitalism; since we have missed the connectivity of  a newsletter at the top of from the start of the book launch, I think that the combination of what future capitalism innovations dr yunus partners each year and progress towards safe banking and yes can momentum and millennium goals needs annual reporting as well as becoming a casebook for SMBA
    - if we can work out what way of asking dr yunus about this quickly , i think it would be easy to get a publisher if he loves the idea
    6 I need next week to start phoning any education gurus that we feel could help by being at dialogue - I think you have previously voted for lucknow Gandhis and Taddy Blecher -anyone else-  presume I should phone up Glasgow uni; its a pity that we don’t seem to be have given the name of the main Bangladesh guy I met as he was taking dr yunus off to celebrations he had planned on Sunday night when I got the 15 minutes with dr yunus at the hotel du vin; he had told me that he wanted us to stay in touch but that he had cone without his business card (now so important both because of the glasgow grameen replication experiment and the billionnaire scot sir tom hunter being the linking in entrepreneurial revolutionary glad o see adam smith’s map of free markets being applied wholly to end poverty’s most urgent productivities and demasnds
     6.1 in a saner systems world I really wanted to put a lot more of my time back on education revolution for my 12 year old daughter's sake - we are so far off the revolution the internet could have been in schools that it makes me angry- there is to my knowledge exactly one practice group of teachers etc that have spent the last 25 years exploring the netfuture scenario that could have been - they are hidden away in new zealand - I have their books; one of them is probably what jamii bora would write up as part of its own business school curriculum; I am interested that ingrid munro mentioned 3 obscure universities as helping her - i will have to try and see if I can search my notes on that
    7  I get the impression that there wont be a meeting with dr yunus on this visit but perhaps the opportunity to deliver him a letter - is that how you see it
    8 is there anyone at else I should have another go at on friday or what is it you need next so that london become; have you and peter ryan fixed meeting with laura and and her links up to the PM’s social action committee
     9 what else have I forgotten - commuting between 4 collaboration cities makes me more scatty than usual?
    op-ed  -Perhaps your campus newspaper would be interested in this op-ed I just wrote. Would you pitch it to them?  Best, Sam

    Slumdog Entrepreneur

    When my wife and I slipped into our theater seats to watch Slumdog Millionaire, we braced ourselves for a journey into urban slums, a world inhabited by over one billion people globally.  

    But unlike the movie-goers in the theater that night who pinned their hopes for one chai wallah (tea seller) escaping the horrors of the slums of Mumbai, India, on the long-shot odds of his winning the Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, we knew that right now there is a tool that has helped not just one movie character but more than 100 million of the world’s poorest people actually begin to escape the worst devastations of poverty.  That opportunity is not a game show but microcredit—small loans to start or expand businesses like selling tortillas or cell phone time to your neighbors.  And if there was an Oscar for assisting beggars, thieves, and prostitutes to find a dignified route out of the slums, I’d know where to look for the winner.

    mostofa can you help me develop clauses of this over the next few days (some of these clauses we may not use but they help recall the overall compass of what you and I have promised dr yunus over the last 18 months and 10 meetings, or coversely you have bee asked by dr yunus to pilot) clause 1 : through existing forum, microuni clubs,collaboration cafes , and other community rising movements (eg Boston 1000) before june we will pilot at least 10 things that either dr yunus has mentioned that he wants structured into Bangladesh micro youth forums OR which youth who actively network social business entrepreneurship vote for asking dr yunus and other Bangladeshi microcredit leaders to help connect 1.1 some examples of the ten that are already being worked on*Bangla5000 (since Balimicrocreditsummit specification by Dr Yunus)*develop a web linking 1000 social businesses (since sheraton towers youth meeting with dr yunus)*outline what youth would like to see as content if a future capitalism and smba annual fieldbook is to be published as a sequel on replicable practices of ending poverty (this builds on publication  of the 5 methods of innovating collaboration that Bangladesh's first third century has open sourced worldwide) 1.2 more specifically on bangla5000 , we will try the brand chartering survey of opinions- who in the world would miss what if some of the following systems did not exist*Bangladesh*Microcredit*Social Business as an organizational governance system*Yunus*Youth networks of Yes We Can*Future Capitalism partnerships between the world's most resourced organizations and the grassroots networks responsible for solutions/service of life critical needs since lamiya's team coordinate communications, it would help if they too filled in this brand identifiers survey- they dont have to do it for each of the above- just those that matter passionately to them (back in jan 2008 I left my 1995 book that created the genre of scaling worldwide brands as learning organisations with unique purposes) This survey is relevant because it tells us what to look for in certifying membership of the Bangal5000 network which will happen by june; it is also a step in understanding how to deal with the number 1 challenge we committed to help dr  yunus team with in first week of 2008 - ie that Bangladesh has some replicable open source franchises that are  vital to collaborate around if end poverty is to be the network generation's mission but currently only about 1% of people who want to end poverty both are aware that Bangladesh is at the epicenter of some of these methods or know how to practice them- as discussed at that time this particular challenge involves as many youth qualifying in big cities with SMBAs as MBAs clause 2 - we will review where the world banking crisis stands, and perception that yes we can  Obama  administration is on course to prevent this from diverting millennium goals- we will ask whether there is a menu of segmented banking concepts drawing on all of Bangladesh’s or the deep 10's segmented microcredit services which the whole dialogue group needs to know the existence of and talk about wherever we go that remains in community banking crisis; we will listen to whether Bernanke has facilitated any new laws to make microcredit simple to start up in USA clause 3 - before leaving Dhaka we will write up a declaration/invitation to youth networks signed by both youth representatives and microcredit leaders - this will be one step towards evolving microyouthsummit - eg it might either declare a youth social networking goal for 2015 or agree how to do an opinion poll of what that could be and which youth networks need surveying; we will ask that Bangladesh’s microcredit leaders form a professorial or other opinion leader panel which commits to help celebrate any youth practices (and action plans) that progress this declaration; this clause can review inspirations listed by dr yunus in chapter 11 of future capitalism boom to ensure we have consistency between youth fashions and those that change how leadership responsibility is valued (in mass media worlds, 90% of all branding fashions ultimately are propagated by youth including what leaders communicate) clause 4 - we will have invited those at the forefront of educational change - eg taddy blecher free university movement, the Gandhi's lucknow school - either to attend the dialogue so we can unite progress towards education designed round microentrepreneurial job creation or to be involved in debriefings from the dialogue clause 5 - we will share a map of what social action alumni networks are scaling up around the world such as the Boston 1000 to 10000 meetings; the green children action celebrations of you can hear me now; Vivian’s target date for releasing the blockbuster movie -can we invite someone close to slumdog millionaire to the dialogue and indeed does part of the audience of this 8-oscar winning movie have a social action subnetwork clause 6 - we will look at whether youth wants to develop stories (and maps of lead social action networks) for some more specific bridging networks such asend poverty and go greenend poverty and child healthcare as a right

    end poverty and internet for poor or mobile leapfrogging such as

    mostofa you also need to reinsert at some of the core text like youth ambassadors cos that was how we found some of the most connected undergraduates - taking that down was a backward step

    My father Norman Macrae, Order of The Rising Sun ....  would be delighted if you have time to read this invitation
    London & Transatlantic Leaders Quest to Dhaka, June 2009
    This year instead of an RAC Lunch in Saint James, we plan a day trip to Grameen HQ in the Mirpur Slum in Dhaka to dialogue with Dr Yunus. When with Mostofa kindness I first met Dr Yunus in the new year week of 2008, I gave him my father's 1984 book on the future of yes we can learning networks so it is most likely our dialogue will be anchored around what 19-25 year olds can be helped by elders to change exponentially rising.
    Although if you will resource a social business project you will openly publish with those who go to the dialogue and what collaboration approval to take to the next stage, I am sure there's time to review that the more audacious its micro up replication is. As Sir Tom Hunter said in Glasgow last November- the least we can do Dr Yunus after you have come all this way is to plant some interactions that make you happy. You can bank on Glasgow being a capital city that will be joyous to produce just that. (Historians may know that Glasgow has 308 years of practicising anti-empire economics- dad and I always read the late 1700s Scottish literature on free markets and entrpreneurs with that micro lens first, as indeed were all readers of The Economist intended to do by its 1843 Scottish founder).
    The day before yesterday I was at a world bank meeting listening to how Kenya's Jamii Bora was now the most exciting bank to visit and a guy from USAID muttered smething about replication being the number 1 buzzword in transitioning America's economy and leadership. We invite you to join us in publishing a new genre "innovating collaboration"  -the quest for replication beyond excellence.
    For example ending malaria deaths would be cool to design a community replication franchise around- or even just recall how florida once did that. Notably so as its Obama's most specific 2015 pledge to see what networked people can do - and health partnerships are the type that Dr Yunus most knows Bangladesh cannot invent on its own.
    Banking Bangladesh can invent and share www.  Social Buiness and Sustainability investment in communities Bangladesh can invent and share www.  Learning internet  we can Invent. Solar energy we can invent. As you can see at and help distribute through free dvds intended for 10000 youth particularly to Q&A round.
    If you are in UK you are lucky, you can just talk to mostofa and see if you have something relevant to bring to dhaka around June 23. If you are in USA and want to talk, you are unlucky in that I guess I am the one most trying to collate how ideas for action map together. All we are trying to do is help those either with the greatest resources to partner dhaka or the most lifetime exponentials to network YES while sustainability still can be learnt and done. 
    chris macrae  usa 301 881 1655 where young new yorkers and east coast business school students aim to be the first to openly catalogue 1000 sustainable social businesses any bank with a future would be proud to share in so what courses are 3rd graders better at questioning than wall street was at answering during the first 8 years of this most extraordinary century

    What Everybody Needs to Know First About Economics

    Economics designs peoples futures but this depends on what logics are analysed- here are the logics The Economist used in the early 19080s when it discussed how the net gneration could be the most productive time for youth


    A nation/place cannot sustain growth unless its capital is structured so that family's savings are invested in their next generation's productivity. Norman Macrae's 1954 book on The London Capital Market provides chapter and verse. Historically it was timely as London's industrial revolution had planted most of the developed world's laws and financial instruments. Futurewise this book became a source for Norman's forty years of leadership challenges including 3000 editorials. THese became branded in the 2 genres of entrepreneurial revolution and future history of the net generation genre which he focused on from 1972. They script in practical details most of the changes that economists would need to make to historic rules if globalisation is not to collapse the worldwide financial system of 2010s

    Norman framed his writings on future purposes huan most wanted around the idea that The Net Generation to 2024 would face change on a scale never previously experienced by our human race. To prevent risks and celebrate job creating opportunities Norman proposed in his 1984 book (The 2024 Report) that the world should unite around youth's most exciting millennium goal. He explained why economics would design the most popular futures if the goal was chosen as racing to end poverty everywhere. Reasons included: its possible, its exciting, it creates jobs post-industrial generation will need to design around collaborative technology, it can empower youth to joyfully unite cultures as we become borderless (more connected than separated), it aligns economics principles with nature's exponentially (compounding) rules of evolutionary selection which are community-up and open.

    We are shocked how few people know of the main findings of the renowned economist Maynard Keynes- increasingly only economics riles the world and the greatest risk to the future working lives of our children comes from elderly macroeconomists who hire themselves out to the biggest who want to get bigger.

    Historically when faulty systems of macroeconomists ruined civilisations they fell one by one. But Einstein took Keynes logic further and hypothesised that the first generation to become more connected than separated by technology would be subject to a final exam. Now if we let erroneous macroeconomists rule whole continents of nations will collapse.

    By 1976 my father (Norman macrae) -probably the last student of economics mentored by Keynes-  was writing at The Economist why the next half century would see the net generation tested - he called upon the genre of Entrepreneurial Revolution (ER) networkers to sort out the greatest  innovation challenge economics - and so the human race - will ever face .




    The opportunity of 10 times more productivity for the net generation (with million times more collaboration technology than man's 1960's race to moon)

    .The THREAT is preventing the threat of collapsing continent-wide system of value exchange. By 2020 the (exponential track impacting future) sustainanbilyty of every village around the globe will likely be lost or won

    ..logo3responsibility.jpg...How could we be experiencing record youth unemployent when we are living in a time of a million times more collaboration tech than a generation ago? According to research by Entrepreneur networks started at The Economist in 1976, we are 36 years off track in compounding 2 unustainable systems whose follies multiply each other

    Keynes - because economics will incresingly rule the world, the greatest danger to the futures of youth is elderly macroeconomists where fame maks them compete to superpower over peoples  

     Boulding: ****the historic significance of capitalism is precisely a society in which exchange has become a more important source of power than threat**** in his book economics as science

    Von hayek- given the fatal conceit in my profession, I really think you shouldn't be doing this - awarding me a first Nobel Prize in economics 
    freedom of speech and everything about the future you want, NOW depends on enough people knowing how to play the value exchange game - and why that isnt exactly what the game of monopoly teaches - an exchange is where each side says I wants something from you so let's work out what I can do for you and purposefully improve on this over time through hi-trust communal feedback

    • agree on a picture like that on the right- we have seen cases where one of the 10 coordinates shown felt the system had betrayed their greatest trust, and so zeroised the organsaition or network (even ones that accountants had been reprorting record profits ahd $100 billion equity

    • choose say 12 markets whose future purpose is most vital to sustaining your children - and use media to agree what the greatest human purpose and corresponding mkilennium goals are that need investing in to fee each market and youth's working lives in serving the most valuable purpose
    • get those (including all parents?) who save across generations to throw out speculators from banking systems and capital markets - eg next time there is a bailout (which means taking your childrens money to refinance a bank) wipe out shareholders; let them set lawyers on old managers and any politicians their pr's lobbied; keep savings accounts safe; restructure bank so that it invests in youth productivity and sustaining communities not bubbles, and not trapping people in debt

    Goodwill explains up to 90% of value impacts of any organsaition in a networked economy- yet no nation yet requires that organisations it licences to audit goodwii. 20 years of research has proved the following reciprocal relationship - the purposeful question" who would uniquely miss what if your organsaition did not exist?, has the reciprocal question why let your organisation contnue to exist if it has broken my life-crtiical trust it promised to serve



    valuetrue capitalism maps how each side win-win-win from other sides communal purpose over time -this  goes back over 250 years to the criteria of free markets adam smith demanded freedom of speech questioned - he talked about the transparency of community markets where a rogue trader might fool some of the people but not for long and not for too big to fail! - the journal of social business edited by adam smith scholars at his alma mater Glasgow University advises people of any other tongue how to build up from adam's hi-trust ideas to such constructs as sustainable global vilage networking first mapped by schumacher (another keynes alumni) - we have a library of free articles for you to choose and translate from

    phoney capitalism spins a monopoly, a non-free maket - one side rules by saying I want to take more and more from all of you- esentially this is what rules when global accountants audit only how much one side has profited/extracted withouth how much has it sustains other sides- phoney capitalism can only result in exponentai meltdown becuase so much has been extracetd from system that its unsustainable for human lives or for nature or for both

    Q: Original Purpose of Economics? A The Scotland of the 1750s was at the end of a first generation to have found their country taken over by England's Empire., So Adam Smith was motivated to start writing about how to design systems so that peoples could could look forward to their next generation sustaining more productive lives than they had had ... 7 quarters later keynes general theory issued humanity's greatest challenge- economics as a systems science had reached the state that only economics rules the world ... moreQ: What do the man-made systems that rule the world look like? A Purposeful value exchanges composed round 5 main flows of how productively peoples lives are used and 5 main demands human beings make as co-workers, customers, owners, stewards of the globe, stewards of society at the village level - moreQ: Why can't human race in 21st C be sustained with choice of economics made by 20th C biggest banks and govs etc? A Long Story: ER alumni are in their 37th year of offering debating scripts eg1 on wht some industrial age systems after world war 2 were designed to be too big to exist as the first net generation became more connected than separated by geographical borders ... What is known is that 2010s is most exciting decade to be an entrpreneur because our impacts define what will be possible for all our childrens' children more

    Muhammad Yunus expresses faith in entrepreneurs at G20 summit

    Posted on: November 23, 2011
    Category: News

    Microfinance Focus, November 4, 2011: Professor Muhammad Yunus was invited to deliver a key note speech during the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Summit held in Nice, France. Professor Yunus addressed an audience of more than 400 entrepreneurs from all G20 countries. In his speech, he shared his personal entrepreneurship experiences, his faith in young entrepreneurs to be the pillars of society and the need to include poor countries in the discussion process in making global decisions.

    Professor Yunus being an entrepreneur himself started off creating the Grameen Bank that provides microfinance services to the poor who had little access to financial provisions. From that, he ventured into a wide number of social businesses such as Grameen Nursing College, Grameen Eyecare Hospitals, Grameen Shakti, etc.

    He has always considered young entrepreneurs to be the most effective solution for the future. He said “In my opinion, G20 YES is a fabulous initiative, gathering so much energy and momentum from all over the world. Because of their creativity and leadership, provided that they commit to share the value they create, these 400 young entrepreneurs in this room can change the world.”

    Professor Yunus is also a member of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) Advocacy Group, advising the Secretary General of the United Nations. Hence, he believes that the next generation of youths should be handed over the process of the MDGs as soon as possible. He believes that entrepreneurs will have a key role to play in fulfilling the MDGs, if they are committed to the social value created by their companies, and social business can be part of the solutions.

    In his speech, he added that the G20 needed to broaden its scope to deal with the current world crisis. It can no longer remain a political forum with economic agendas. The G20 needs to create a social agenda as well. Professor Yunus proposes that ‘social business’ should be brought to the agenda of G20, as one of the concrete and effective solutions to be considered for immediate implementation so as to guide capitalistic investment towards social value and jobs creation, rather than sheer profit maximization strategies. A social business is a cause-driven business where profits stay within the company for its sustainability.

    Lastly, Professor Yunus concluded that the G20 should be expanded into the G25, where poor countries from each continent should be included in the global agenda which they are part of. He added that “Their problems are inter-related with others, and their proposals of solutions should be considered by the most economically advanced countries in making global decisions. A G25 would be a big step toward ensuring that global social issues are raised, and MDGs implementation is fully shared on the global agenda. And finally, because fighting poverty together is the only way to bring long lasting peace in this world.”

     Mapping is a process of discovery. Crucially maps are only as usable as updating correctness of bottom up information. Think of your own use of a map. You look for the "you are here arrow". You want to be directed to somewhere/someone you dont know how to get to; you want your return vist to be safe as well as a value multiplying win-win.
    Does anyone remember the simplest findings of einstein and jon von neumann. Einstein proved that to innovate more value you need to go more micro in what you model; von neumann showed that there is more value to be networked by interfacing safe flows across systems instead of ruling over separation of boundaries. There isnt a single global metrics profession that gets these mathematical -and natural - principles right. Unless we change this global markets will cycle through ever greater collapse and more and more communities will lose sustainability. Mapmaking is that critical an idea to what the net genration will achieve in 2010s; but its also one that children from primary age up can action learn. Its simple. Its just that it works the other way round from top-down people's fatal conceit.
    It explores how to make the invisible principles and practices of real wealth creation visible, and therefore useable. Our planet needs case studies underline the search for new win-wins that build ‘system integrity’
    Trust-flow is the unseen wealth to invest sustainability in. Tranpsarently mapped it develops a goodwill gravity  tyhat invites with roleplayer in a community to multiply goodwill while sustaining their own cashflow.. Trust is not some vague, mushy, abstract warm-hearted sentiment. It is an economic powerhouse – probably just as economically and socially important as oil.
    The point is, there are specific things you need to do to get trust flowing, just as there are specific things you need to do to get oil flowing. And like oil trust has a dark side. Right now, the world is awash with the carbon emissions which threaten the stability and sustainability of its ecosystems. Right now, the world is also awash with the ‘carbon emission’ of trust – mistrust. Indeed it may well be that our ability to tackle the one issue – the threat of environmental catastrophe – depends on our ability to tackle the other issue: how to generate, deepen, extend and sustain trust.>br>But what is the best way of doing this? One thing is for sure. You don’t build and sustain trust via some sentimental exercise of goodwill to all and sundry. There are three very simple principles at the heart of effective trust generation. 
    First, trust is generated via win-win relationships. It’s virtually impossible to generate or sustain trust without mutual benefit for those involved. But beneficial outcomes are not enough in themselves. For trust to be built and sustained, both sides need to signal a demonstrable commitment to finding win-win ways forward. Such a  commitment may require real changes to what we say and do. Second, real ‘win-wins’ are hardly ever purely financial or material. You don’t build trust simply by walking away with more cash in your pocket. Trust works at all the dimensions and levels of human exchange. Yes, it’s about financial and material rewards. But it’s also about purpose (what people want to achieve). It’s about politics with a small ‘p’: the use and abuse of power, the crafting and application of rules of fair play. And it’s about emotions: the sometimes overwhelmingly strong emotions, both positive and negative, that are generated when people deal with other peopleWhat’s constitutes a ‘win’ – a sense of real improvement – is therefore highly specific. It depends absolutely on the details of who the parties are, what they are trying to achieve, in what context. Building trus, therefore involves discovering these specifics. Just as oil doesn’t flow out of the ground, get refined and pump its way into motor vehicles automatically and without effort, so identifying and doing what is necessary to get trust flowing requires dedicated, skilled effort. It requires a disciplined, structured process, not a vague sentiment.

    3) Third, even if we do steps 1) and 2) there’s still a good chance it won’t succeed. Why? Because it ignores an invisible third factor. In the real world, purely two way bilateral relationships don’t exist. There is always a third party whose interests or outcomes are affected by what the other two parties do but who is not a party to the contract. The environment is a case in point. Producers and consumers may both benefit from buying and selling to each other – but what happens if, in doing so, they destroy the environment they both depend on?

    This raises a hugely important question. When two parties pursue win-wins and build mutual trust, are they doing so in a way which creates a win and builds trust for the third party at the same time? Or are they simply pushing the problems – and the mistrust – further down the line on to this third party? Building vigorous, healthy networks of trust is a different kettle of fish to ‘you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours’ win-win conspiracies. It requires a Map of all the key relationships plus careful consideration of knock-on consequences. It requires a different perspective.

    These three simple, basic steps do not happen automatically. They need to be worked at. The territory needs to be deliberately Mapped and explored. What’s more, there are obstacles in our way – mental and practical obstacles that need to be cleared. Prevailing economic theories about ‘rational economic man’ for example, deny the need to commit to win-win outcomes. Instead, they promote supposedly ‘rational’ (i.e. narrowly selfish behaviours) which actively undermine trust The same theories insist that the only valid measure of human benefit is money, thereby excluding from consideration many of the biggest opportunities for improvement. Meanwhile many vested interests do not want to extend the circle of trust to third parties and complete networks because their positions of power depend on their ability to take advantage of the weaknesses of these third parties. That’s another job for Mapping: helping to identify and mount such obstacles.
    The potential benefits of doing so are unthinkably huge. They start with a simple negative: the relief that comes from when you stop banging your head against a brick wall. Mistrust breeds wasteful, wealth destroying conflict that tends to feed on itself. Anger and hatred engender anger and hatred. Simply easing or stopping the terrible waste of mistrust would transform prospects for many millions of people. We desperately need to find ways of doing this. Then there are the positive benefits. Understanding the real nature of human wealth – all those dimensions of purpose, ‘politics’ and emotion as well as money and material comfort – means we can start being human again; human in the way we think, and act. What’s more, many of these intangible benefits won’t cost a penny. They’re there for the taking, if only we puts our minds to it.
    But there’s more, because trust is also an economic superpower in its own right. In the pages that follow we will show conclusively that material and financial riches are also dependent on trust. In fact, we will argue the case for going one step further. We will say that material and financial riches are a by-product of trust: the visible fruits of invisible, intangible human exchange. Once you understand that sustainable cash flows are a by-product of sustainable trust flows, your understanding of what makes a successful business is transformed.
    Separately, each of these three fruits – reducing the waste of conflict, unleashing the potential intrinsic benefits of human exchange, and energising the sustainable creation of material wealth – are massive in their own right. Put them together and they represent a vast new continent of opportunity.
    As we said, this book is addressed to entrepreneurs and system  innovation revolutionaries. Wherever you happen to be, whatever the change you want to make is, the principles explored in this book apply. The wish to change and the will to change are not the same as being able to change successfully. For that you need to understand your territory. You will need new Maps


    0.1 Has a continental or worldwide search solutions on job creation that can be replicated across communities been organised before this EU launch of Nov 2011?
    While alumni of entrepreneurial economics have always valued job creation searches- we know of no clear evidence that this has been top of mind in the way that continental-wide government has operated since 1984 even though it was scripted by The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant as the number 1 question the first net generation would need to mediate if sustainable futures and humanity's most needed millennium goals are to be served

    The End of the EU part 1

    TRANSCRIPT: 'The Unthinkable'
    Video above.

    Tom Ashbrook: You're talking about, writing about the end of the EU, the end of the common currency.

    Paul Krugman: it's unthinkable except that continuing down the current path is unthinkable. Spain is actually the epicenter. The Spanish government did nothing wrong. Spain was running a budget surplus before the crisis. It had low levels of debt. But it had a monstrous housing bubble, as did a lot of places, largely financed by the way by German banks which were lending to Spanish banks, which then lent on. And when the housing bubble burst you were left with a severe, extremely severe recession, and so the answer has been government austerity which just makes the slump deeper.

    The alternatives to a breakup of the euro have to be Europe-wide solutions. And so the solution, if there is one, involves accepting a higher rate of inflation for Europe as a whole and that particularly means higher inflation in Germany.
    --Paul Krugman

    What are Spain's alternatives here? Well, if they still had their currency, their own currency, the answer would be devalue, let the peseta drop, Spanish exports would become a lot more competitive, they'd be well on their way to recovery. They don't have their own currency, so people are saying: Well, you have to do all this stuff to stay within the Euro. At some point you say: Well, you know if your answer to our problem is just ever more suffering, ever more you know... 25 percent, 50 percent youth unemployment. If that's your notion of a solution, then maybe although it would be a very terrible thing to have the Euro breakup, maybe that's better than what we're doing. So that's becoming a real possibility now.

    The alternatives to a breakup of the euro have to be Europe-wide solutions. And so the solution, if there is one, involves accepting a higher rate of inflation for Europe as a whole and that particularly means higher inflation in Germany. Talk to the Germans about this and of course they go crazy, but you have to say to them: What is your answer? What you're doing right now is just a path to the collapse of the euro with enormous damage and radicalization and a lot of things that you don't want to see happen in Europe happening.

    TA: If the Germans can't take their foot off the brakes, they're just intrinsically and against history and everything else, Weimar, if they can't do it, what happens?

    PK: Then Europe breaks up and... No, I mean I think it's that stark. It really is, it really is that extreme because you know it's one of those things, you can't be saying that, but then you say: Well, let's talk this through. You know, let's as it said in the original edition of the Godfather - Let us reason together. Right? What are the ways that this can work out? And the current path is not one that can work out.

    It's like an irresistible force hitting an immovable object. On the one hand it's unthinkable that they'll allow the euro to fail because the euro is a terribly important thing, it's not terribly important economically, it would have been better off if they'd, if they had never done it, but now that it has been done, for it to fail is a defeat for the European project, the whole project of bringing peace, democracy, integration to a continent with a terrible history. So it's unthinkable that they'll allow it to fail, but it's also unthinkable that the Germans will accept moderate inflation which is the only solution any of us have been able to come up with. So one of two impossible things is going to happen. Your bet.
