belt road 11 main regions sustaining mother earth, 30 subregions
health education triangle

up to the 1960s here are some of the people whose alumni shaped positive human connections around the world- please tell us who you vite for -

 von neumann

world wr 2 caused acceleration in 2 technolgies: sad one of niclear, potentially happy one of

programable computers and artificial intelligence- von neunamm was the human hub of both-

post war he fathered the programable computer in a life cut short by cancer caused by nucreal

-see biiography of von neumann by macrae- ask big questions like how is it that western education since 1945

has failed to  produce world class mathematicians

 JF Kennedy valued neumann alumni tech advance to believe human and machine intellgence should set goal to race to the moon- nb without corporate or other silos he freed about 10000 brains to achieve this exciting mission- in reality 90% of innovations that have most improved the human lot have nothing to do with big corporate capatalism- see curricula of entrepreneurual revolution in the economist 

Deming was an american consultat who radically improved engineering systems- industrial civil and electronic-  little interest was shown by us corporations so deming mainly worked in japan - by 1962 Japan was a world ahead -this was the start of the rise of 60% of the wporld's people who are Asian- see consider Japan The Economist 1962 and 1969 In the mid 1960s Intel's Gordon Moore committed e;ectronic engineers to multiply capacity of silicon chipa 100 fpld each decade to 2030  %G 4 3 2 1 0- that's a trillion times moore in 2030 than used to race to the moon- what goals can unite 8 billion humans by 2030 to make the most of this unprecdented post industrial revolution- aroind this time Intel's biggets client was a japanese manufacturer of calculators- rather than be too dependent on one client intel invented the programable chip

 from these world record jobs networkers its natural to ask which places in the 1970s leap ahead in valuing human and machines futures: consider 4 mapping 4 places first

the far east islands from japan to singapore which then linked in the s korean insthmus and mainaland china coastal superports

the west coast of usa- in 1972 silicon valley was branded around moores vision, and later west coast cities jopined in ftrom seattle in north to sa diego in south

mit and boston region where mini computers were the fitrst bridge to making computer netwirking personal

bangladesh which in 1972 became s asia's lab of extreme innovation partnerships -how would village women with no electricity grids earn the right to be the parters of great leapfroging experiments 

 japan had been the main eastern colniser of the asian contient; in 1945 the japanese emperor family decalred a cultiral revolution of no more colonisation and trying to make reparation for the world war by assigning its msratest engineering minds to win-win world trades prince charles attended the 1964 japanese olympics- he was amazed by the qualioty of the television instaled in the britih embassy and asked to meet its maker sony's akio morita- charles asked sony to be japans first inward investor in europe through "his country" as Prince of Wales; britain had been the main coloniser of Asia between 1500-1945- it had cultiurally divided and poverty trapped peoples all along the south asian coastal belt- when britannai got to hong kong and china- it demanded the chiense accept opium as a currency - the chiense refused with a result that up to quarter of the world's hardest working people closed themselves from world trade for over a century - by 1972 china was raedy to accept kissinger challenge to return to worldwide entrepreneurship with its new culture of wpmn hold up half the sky, and inward investment from the chiense diaspora bangladesh drew the short straw of indepenence- when independence came to the india subconintent- the west and east were partitioned into 2 pakistans to be ruled by the west- after its war of independnece in 1971, the new nation of bangladesh was poorest and 8th most poulated in the world; rural bangladesh became the lab fror the greatest knowledge partnershisp vilage women needed to buiild a nation from 1972 - understand the alumni of sir fazle abed- how the greatest person to person education networks were buult with no tech gfrom 1972 to 1996, and what happened next so that by 2018 brac was the epiucentre of the largest ngoi [partnerfshisp including the benchmark blash of fintech for the poorest billion 2 kinds of pop- the first kind of pop celebrating an era of imagination was imortalised by Japan's Yoko Ono and Liverpool's John Lennon; the sceond kind of pop emerhed from a continent wide debate in latin america- which kind of catholicsism do we trust most for the futire? the answert franciscan where leader preferentially apply technolgy and knowhow by living and learning with the poorest- see eg alumni of paulo freire in the 1960s or return to why St Francis celebarted ital as the med's gateway hub to the west end of the silk road by requiring his male folowers to love nature and his female fiolowers the calre to practicfe community health servioce 
 Back in 1960 a poor lad in detroit could still train without debt to be a medic- Larry Brilliant's first job was at warners brothers- look after medical needs of their star boy band wavy gravey- after a tough year in usa and europe - the band invited Brilliaint to join them on a fretreta to their favorite guru in the afghan hilss- in those days evn the most isolated villagers were inspired by the moon race; larry stayed on in asia to be the man who ended smallpox and help replicate lowest cost cataract iperations; returning to silicon valey in the 19090s he pitched his dreams that maps suitable for ending plagues and other riosks woiuld be a priority of internet companies- the founders of google liked t6he idea and appointed Larry as firsty ceo of Lee Kuan Yew is the most mazing leader a 6 million person nation has ever seen- he navigated ;peaceful indepence of siknagpre kisle from both brotain and the malaysian minland- his poilcies were alwys ablout peace and jobs- while it may now be locatipnally obbios that singpore is the superport at the crossriads to East Asian coatal belt and from Euepe suez s asia, attracting the investment truist wasnt ovious in 1963. Tioday this islan nation lead sucrriculum of ai for all ages, and has helped asean develop a cross-cultural associoation od nations like no other.  David Atennborogh from the late 1950s and Mkichael Pailn from the late 1960s are the bbc's two world service journalsits who never lost the importannce of gtruth media- attenborough's specialst subject natire, palins originaly part of the finge comic scene incubated by keynes arts theatre, has branched into being the workd's happiest celebratir of other peopels cultures. There are strong links between prince charles passion for green innovation communities, the royal geographical society and these few subjects that the bbc has lived up to world purpose mediation on Gandhi and montessori- arounng 1880 gandhi crowdfuded from his family in mumbai so that he could graduate as a barrister of law in london. On return to India he was overqualified, and found work with the diaspora in slouth africa. His aha moment - his pofoession the em;pire's ;aw was the system gtrapping his people in poverty occured in 1906 when he was thrown out of a train for having the wring color skin. He devoted teh second half of his life - first to a new education system from primaru to gradiate; second to meidating demnds for independnece. Ital's motesorri became his number 1 educational revolutionary extending her system to vilage schooling. Argubaly Gandhi was the first three hemisphere mediator - between 1990-2025 his trinagle of sea trips from mumba to durban from durna to london , from london to mumbai. Accidentally one of his ladings in Lomdom coincided with start of wprd war 1- fpor sevarl months he practised first aid for londoners. His last trip to london 1925 filed the quakers house oppoiste euston starion with thousands curious to hear his next moves on demanding independnece. David Attenborough's brother Richard directed the film Gandhi and until his death chaored london's main club of action learning Gandhi's way. Its fascinating to question whether Gandhi had planted the seeds in south africa that Mandela was to mobilise in ending apartheid. How cn we learn from the way Gandhi viralised positive good back in says that tiday's communnications technolgies were unimaginable 
  for parents and educatirs who value youth's futures- the last chpter of Key7nes Gneral Theory of Employmet, Mpmey and interest is essential readking- keynes explains that incraesing places are locked ito expoentially to the future designed by an economist/ideolgiue- the crtiotica point is that such systems graviate around one goal (not multiple goals)- leynes goes furyer- he ptredicts that economist pose the greatest danger to the futures of generations unless their single goal is ending poverty - to be clear a maths of ensuring that each next girl born has a fair chjance at life is possible but its not what global is yet governed around- factor analysis is a statistical method that reduces multiple goals to ones that require modelling for positivce and negative interacyions- lets hope that the Unite Natuions applies AI to this end -currently there is a network UNAI but the AI stnds fior academic inpact not UN gpoal 1 AI.

 Einstein is valuable when simplified- my preferred @1 fininding - whenever mans science says there is npothingy more to innovate , thye truth is that the science cant invent until it models at a more micro level of dynamic onyteractions than it currently hypothesises

einstein is also fascinating for his correposepondencece with Gandhiu where he notes one day if huimans are to have a future all leaders will need to pass gandhi's design tests : caring for long term sustainability

einstein also questioned how disatrous education ios wherever it fails to empower children to collaborate

i need a summary somewhere between twitter and max one page length of what world would miss without sheikha moza .though i had hoped brac and jack ma's biographer out of tsinghua university would have edited this - so far the opposite process has happened out of dhaka; meanwhile I know javeed has made great headway in india these last 6 months and returns to new york today;I will try and see him soon after my beijing trip

Children are nature’s and humanity’s greatest resource. To spend a lot of time and money making noise about sustainability goals without educating children so that their livelihoods are the solution is literally world ending insanity 

Human beings need to search out both state and non-state solutions to this educational challenge. WISE is a suitable just-in-time search network. Wherever it visits people should celebrate joining in its search

WISE’s known schedule for the next 15 months is

*Accra May 2018
*UN general assembly september 2018 (at united nations adjacent to new york)
*Paris Feb 2019

Currently world record jobs creators research network recommends the 4 most collaborative solutions to benchmarks are

State: China (Xi Jinping- top 7 team; 80 million public servants)

Non-state brac (sir fazle abed bangladesh), special olympics and jack ma’s network of organisations

We welcome other nominations. Especially from student unions everywhere.

If this contention is valid, we can't waste this current college year prepping for wise arriving at the UN. Admittedly I am biassed: I dont want amy to waste her internship time as one of the few young chinese women resident in new york who can open space this search both in chinese and english and who turned up to sir fazle's 80th birthday party: one month over xmas - 3 months at summer

There are 15 eminent people advising UN head Guterres most. These include jack ma; the founder Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser of wise; richard curtis 

 (They also advise Xi Jinping's creation the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank through survey being conducted by Lord Stern of London School of Economics for launch at Franciscan G20 Argentina July. In a Brexit and trump world - UK and english speaking peoples needs to brand all our unique sustainability connections - the bbc and commonwealth being 2 channels that could if nudged by eg prince charles)

The eminent people do not directly include sir fazle abed but wise is inspired by his dna since he was the original education laureate the summit has celebrated since 2011 - both jim kim and gordon brown appear to second and third sir fazle's unique knowledge as do many leading searchers of girl empowerment

Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser has been actively engaged in education and other social reform in Qatar for many years and has played a major role in spearheading national and international development projects. Her Highness has been instrumental in creating the Education Laureates WISE. Originally hosted annually out of Qatar in 2011, they now go on tour in even years with several designated Wise@. We've mapped both summit and Laureate locations across the Belt Road regions. In our view education is as critical an under-investment in human sustainability as infranstructure though the opportunity to synchrinise improvemnts in both should not be lost.

map to come 

She currently serves as Chairperson of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), a private non-profit organization. In addition to her role at QF, Her Highness has launched multiple projects including, the Silatech initiative in 2008 to address the growing challenge of youth employment in the Middle East and North Africa, which followed her appointment by the Secretary General of the UN as an Alliance of Civilizations (AOC) Ambassador. Her Highness has also launched Education Above All (EAA) in 2012, a global initiative that aims to bring new life chances and real hope and opportunities to poor and marginalised children, youth and women in the developing world. EAA is carrying out its objectives through a number of existing programmes such as Educate a Child (EAC), Protecting Education in Insecurity and Conflict (PEIC) and Al-Fakhoora. Her majesty is a UN eminent fellow. Sept 2018 will see a special WISE@UN focusing particularly on refugee education co-hosted by WRJC Antonion Guterres

Today at #WISE17, we extend a warm welcome to our speakers, His Excellency Mr. Nana Akufo-Addo, President of Ghana and Christos Stylianides, European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, as well as our esteemed guest, Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser

Patrick Awuah is the sixth WISE Prize for Education Laureate



Over 2,000 delegates gathered recently at the eighth World Innovation Summit for Education in Doha to share experiences and ideas, and to explore solutions to the challenges of education in times of disruption, political turmoil, and global conflict.

Under the title, Co-Exist, Co-Create: Learning to Live and Work Together, over 100 speakers and moderators led an array of intensive, focused discussions on the implications of constant technological change for teaching and learning, entrepreneurship, reimagining higher education in the connected world, and much more. In this special edition of the Newsletter, we share some highlights.

Qatar Foundation Chairperson Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser presented the WISE Prize for Education to Dr Patrick Awuah, Jr., founder and president of Ashesi University, Accra, Ghana (pictured).

The new WISE Research series, featuring reports on key topics in global education, was presented in meet-the-author sessions, panels, roundtable discussions, and informal conversations in the Majlis. Full texts are available for download online.




WISE partnered with the C2 Lab to create a collaborative, hands-on experiences in the Majlis to envision future schools. Delegates of all ages worked in groups on brainstorming challenges designed to unlock creativity. By the Summit’s end, they produced over 1,000 ideas reflecting the leveraging power of collective intelligence.

The WISE Learners’ Voice program fellows presented their social initiatives addressing refugee education challenges, including early childhood education and integration in local schools. Selected group projects were presented, creating opportunities for feedback and collaboration with WISE delegates and organizations for developing the projects.

WISE launched an intensive pre-summit ‘Doha Learning Week,’ featuring screenings, hackathons, lectures, sport, school tours, and technology showcasing the rich variety of education resources in Qatar.

Voices heard at WISE 2017...



Words from selected speakers at WISE 2017:

“Let us be inspired by this year’s WISE theme of co-existence, and place it at the core of solutions for different challenges –from issues of peace to stability and development. Let us return to education to reinforce this truth.” --Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser.

"The countries that have done well, even without natural resources, are the countries that have invested in education and skills training. It is not natural resources that build nations, it is people who build nations... It is Africans, especially the youth of today, who are going to build Africa." --President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana.

“The only solution [to a post-truth political climate] is education –to insist that there are such things as facts, and something called truth, and that it can be achieved by hard work, evidence, by analysis. These are not simply for the construction of alternate realities; [that] is a path to the decline of civilization. The only thing that can stop it is education.” --commentator Fareed Zakaria.

"One solution for seeking truth... is to create these kinds of multi-civilizational classrooms and multi-civlizational events like WISE, and to say: Hey, there are different pespectives, we can put these together to see the world as a whole." --Dean Kishore Mahbubani, the Lee Kwan Yee School of Public Policy.




"Literature should be an essential part of education because it teaches you empathy, makes you think about living in somebody else's skin. Then I think we are more able to live peacefully with one another. We are more able to understand that people are different and that it’s okay. That’s why I am such a believer in the power of stories and story-telling as an essential part of what it means to be educated."  --Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, author of Half of a Yellow Sun (pictured, right).

"My university was meant to be global, not just geographically, but age global, ethnicity global... to reach everyone. And that is new because the best universities pride themselves on their exclusivity... My university was meant to be the opposite.... Lifelong education should be a basic human right. The revolution is unstoppable... Everybody deserves the right to participate in society, and I believe education is the key."  --Sebastian Thrun, chairman of Udacity.

"Education really isn't about skills versus knowledge, or art versus science. It really should be about both. At the core I think we need scientists who are sentitized to the humanities, and we need humanities scholars who are scientifically literate." --Stavros Yiannouka, CEO, WISE.


Six new WISE Awards projects are models of inspiration



The six WISE Awards winning projects for 2017 were honored during a presentation ceremony at WISE, including screenings of short films about the projects, and remarks from project representatives.

The six project reprentatives are pictured with Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser (l to r): Nisha Ligon of Ubongo Edutainment, Kathy Perkins of PhET Interactive Simulations, Lydia Wilbard



of Camfed Tanzania, Paolo Speller of the Organization of Ibero-American States for Education, Science, and Culture, Caitlin Baron, the Luminos Fund, and Nicolas Sadirac of School 42.

Read full details of the 2017 WISE Awards projects online.The submission period for the 2018 WISE Awards is open until 30 January 2018.

WISE Accelerator project CamBioScience expands its research in new partnership


CamBioScience, a WISE 2017 Accelerator project, is joining 'EDUCATE', an initiative funded by the European Regional Development Fund and coordinated by University College London's Institute of Education. CamBioScience will conduct research on its unique data collection systems and adaptive learning algorithms to better understand their potential for improving engagement, self-efficacy, knowledge acquisition, completion rates, and the ability to perform new technical skills.


WISE introduces WISE Words: the Podcast



This week WISE introduces a new podcast series, called WISE Words, featuring conversations with leading thinkers, innovators, and changemakers of all kinds on education challenges around the globe. We are launching the series with a discussion between Dean Kishore Mahbubani of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, Singapore, and Stavros Yiannouka, CEO, WISE.



Upcoming episodes will include further conversations recorded at WISE 2017 with journalist and commentator Fareed Zakaria, the acclaimed writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, entrepreneur Sebastian Thrun, and others.

Ambitious plans for 2018: Looking to WISE@Accra, in May



With the conclusion of the 2017 Summit and an ambitious calendar of commitments already in place for next year and beyond, the WISE Team is staying excited and busy. Here are a few highlights of our priorities.

At the Summit, WISE launched the Agile Leaders of Learning Innovation Network (ALL IN), which follows earlier research and a capacity-building program for school leadership. WISE is poised to go 'All In' to enable and empower a global network of leaders, ultimately to achieve better student outcomes.

As WISE has contributed to shaping education policy, such as in the Asia-Pacific (APEC) education strategy, Mastercard Foundation's recent launch of research on secondary education in Africa, our reputation as an education think tank continues to grow.

Generous support from Banco Santander has enabled the WISE Accelerator to establish itself as a small but influential actor in



education technology. WISE plans targetedimpact studies on new learning technologies, to ensure the Accelerator supports entrepreneurs and contributes to creating knowledge.

Over the past 18 months WISE has taken its message to Tunis, Beijing, and Madrid. With the success of these regional forums, WISE announced it will travel to Ghana in May 2018 to team up with WISE Prize for Education Laureate, Dr Patrick Awuah, for WISE@Accra.

WISE will also participate in New York for WISE@UNGA in September, and in March 2019 for WISE@Paris, before returning to Doha in November for WISE 2019.

WISE hosts third workshop on strengthening the global 'education ecosystem'


In a pre-summit program, WISE hosted over 80 key education stakeholders for a day-long working session to discuss how to strengthen a global education ecosystem to foster a learning and sharing infrastructure to advance learning outcomes and achieve universal quality education (UN SDG 4). The session was the third gathering on this topic held by the Global Education Ecosystem informal working group created in follow-up to the Education Commission’s Learning Generation Report, and co-led by Teach For All, Center for Global Education (CGE) at the Asia Society, the Center for Universal Education (CUE) at the Brookings Institution, Results for Development, the Boston Consulting Group, and WISE.


Matterfund partners with WISE to launch a visual atlas for global educators



Matterfund has partnered with WISE to launch a new visual atlas for education development. Profiling over 300 organizations globally, the living atlas shows initiatives working toward the UN Sustainable Development Goal for universal quality education.

Matterfund enables initiatives to showcase their best work, attract partners, connect to



funding opportunities, and follow compelling projects and publications in education development. The atlas will continue to grow as Matterfund works alongside WISE, NGOs and regional leaders. Initiatives can register to claim their profiles and showcase their work.

Brookings Institution features WISE as one of its 'Innovation Spotters'



In a new report, Can We Leapfrog? The Potential of Education Innovations to Rapidly Accelerate Progress, researchers at the Brookings Institution chart a new path forward in global education by examining the possibility of leapfrogging—rapidly accelerating educational progress to ensure that all young people develop the skills they need to thrive in a fast-changing world. The report presents an evidence-based, theoretical pathway for leapfrogging in education that can help guide investors, innovators, and governments alike. The Brookings report also introduces a catalog analyzing almost 3,000 global education innovations, the largest such collection to date. To develop this catalog, Brookings has brought together fifteen organizations called 'Education Innovation Spotters'. WISE is proud to be one of these, scanning the landscape of innovative programs, schools, policies, approaches, and tools around the world and making this information publicly available to all, and to our colleagues at Brookings.

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
  • that caused by non-economic media which also distracts us with glossy images and soiundbites instead of future realities and integrated cross-cultural and inter-generational understanding - full briefing here
  • World's biggest maths error compounded by macroeconomists and all global professions with a ruling monopoly - see below
Discuss: what does everyone need to know about the way economists think and behave. Understand 2 opposite segments of E : The Unacknowledged Microeconomist and the Fatally Conceited.MacroEconomist

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
debate difference between true capitalism and phoney capitalism
  • 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
  •  start discussing multi-win models - see our 4 favorites from 36 years of debates with entrepreneuruial revoltionaries
  • 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

    - in the 1990s I was working with big 5 accountants; I argued for a missing audit they needed to do as regularly as their monetisation audit; I called this how goodwill modelling multiplies value around a gravitational purspoe ewhise gials all sides want to progress over time; it turns out that in knowlege scetors over 90% of the future is bayesian predicatbale on quality of goodwill relationships-3 yeras before andersen crashed I usd this model to warn them that if they stoped multiplying conflicts around true and fair they would be zeroised by society- I didnt succeed in getting my advice to be acted on but at that time unseen wealth publications made by brookings and georgetwon had just been banned by the incolimng bush adminsitration - who didnt like to be told that without the second aidt risks would compound unseen- every collapse USA has seen a hand in during 2000s (and viralised to other nations since 2008) can be traced to this mathenatical error

    DO YOU KNOW...
    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 

    World Class Brands are in 25th year (as a subnetwork of Norman Macrae's Entrepreneurial Revolution) of helping sustain the most purposeful organsiations or markets in the world. Core to any charter of purpose is a quiz revolving round this question

    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.
