Transforming Lives

Through Free Tertiary Education

South African Case

Imagine a world in which the most valued professionals are those who help masses of people (from infancy onwards) optimalise productivity and sustainability of their lifetimes. What is known is that the first 145 years of The Economist magazine was an editorial search not for an abstract excellence but the social action of optimalising productivity opportunities of all the peoples. This is also integral to the way the word „entrepreneur‟ was coined in France. And when Keynes tutored his last classes of students at Cambridge it was core to the Hippocratic Oath he required of the professional economist. In his last years, Keynes became concerned with the risky conclusion of his general theory „increasingly only economics will rule the world‟ (see Norman Macrae‟s Sunshades in October 1963).

If the people who had assembled at the first Microcredit Summit 1997 had been asked to vote: once we have identified the handful of most economic microcredit models, do you expect it will be found that the role of educators will have been integral in all of these models? I wonder if the majority would have said yes.

In any event, the family and friends of Norman Macrae are determined that The Foundation that bears his name will value spaces where educators and microeconomists work with each other joys as well as empowering youth‟s millennium goals. We welcome portraits of microeconomists and educators that countries‟ peoples celebrate most.

To open this series Lesley Williams in Johannesburg profiles one of her greatest heroes Dr Taddy Blecher in South Africa. Currently about 10,000 entrepreneurs linkin their own lifes‟ works through 40 cities (www.the-hub.net). It is fortunate that what members of (and visitors to)
African hubs value most is in Lesley‟s charge to facilitate and build - coming as her family tree does from the lands and community cultures of Mandela and Gandhi.

South Africa has a desperate need for education. More than 5 million youth are unemployed and 85% do not have access to education. Only 1 in 100 first year primary school goers are averaged to graduate from college. Tertiary education is not an option due to poverty and any form of entrepreneurship is mostly for subsistence living. JSB Vol 1(3) October 2011/ISSN2045-1083 Page 29

Dr Taddy Blecher1 is considered to be South Africa‟s pioneer in free education. He is co-founder and CEO of Maharishi Institute, offering students conscious-based education where they can access intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth. He believes that every human being is a genius waiting to happen. Inspired by the experience of his own family where his father shifted the course of the family in one generation moving from hardship to seven academic degrees and providing the best education to all his children. He believes that there are brilliant children throughout the country who lack opportunities and mentorship. Free tertiary education was first pioneered in South Africa through setting up the CIDA City Campus. The non-profit, private higher education institution contributes to the social and economic development of the country by providing access to quality higher education and skills development for financially disadvantaged students. Students pay €35 for the first year and €15 a month in the following three years, about 7% of what they would pay at other universities. They also contribute to the running of the university by helping with cleaning, maintaining computers and working in the administration offices. As part of their degree, students are required to return to their communities during the holidays. A pay-it-forward philosophy allows lessons learnt to be shared within their communities of origin. While some teach, others mentor teenage orphans responsible for looking after younger siblings. Often the first members of their families to go to university, graduates then step into a life that was previously out of reach.

1 Dr Taddy Blecher is also the founder or co-founder of Invincible Education Group, Branson School of Entrepreneurship (with Sir Richard Branson), CIDA City Campus, and CIDA Empowerment Fund, all dedicated to empowering the youth of South Africa through education. His model has also inspired the founding of TSIBA (Tertiary School in Business Administration) with campuses in Cape Town and Eden, situated in the heart of the rural village Karatara.

Masharashi Institute‟s response to the desperate need for education is to provide two educational programmes. Students begin with a two-year foundation programme before they can start their business degree. The aim is to bridge unemployable youth into education and entrepreneurship by teaching 25 essential life skills including: maths, English, digital literacy, leadership and self-development. This is followed by a three-year internationally accredited BBA degree. By building a Sustainable Education Loan Fund, the Institute will become a self-sustaining entity which funds the tuitions of degree students by having them participate in a „learn and earn‟ programme; entering in his/her JSB Vol 1(3) October 2011/ISSN2045-1083 Page 30

first year, the student receives a bursary loan from the Institute worth €1,200. The second year is further funded by a €1,700 bursary. In their third to fifth year, when doing their business degree, the students are employed by Invincible Outsourcing, a call centre company that is governed by the Institute and enables the students to pay back their bursaries. The loans paid back fund a new student enrolling in the programme, ensuring its continuity.

By employing the students, they gain valuable work experience that will in turn make them more attractive to the labour market and increases their chances of immediate employment after graduation. Capable students are allowed to take up basic positions in the call centre after training in the requisite skills of a call centre agent. As the students develop their skills set, they will be allowed to take up more challenging positions in the centre. Once they have successfully mastered these skills, junior supervisory experience will be available to students who so desire. Students get real life, practical experience in a closely monitored and trained environment, ensuring a professional facility and passionate-quality service for clients. Students receive part of the revenue as reward for their experience, and the surplus generated from the call centre goes to the schools to finance the tuition of future students. This funding model supports growth of the institute and provides capital to replicate it across Africa and the world.

The future income of the students are dramatically increased as the starting salary of a BBA student is approximately €7.200 per annum in South Africa and €14.400 for an MBA graduate. Life time earnings are therefore expected to mount up to €650.000 per person. Currently Maharashi Institute is educating 200 students, meaning a total of €1.6 million earnings in starting salaries is earned, or €100 million in lifetime earnings altogether. The Institute aims at increasing their student base to 1.800 in the next two years.

Transcendental Meditation (TM) is an integral part within the educational programmes offered by CIDA City Campus and Maharashi Institute. TM is a simple, natural, effortless procedure practised for 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. It is the most widely practised, most researched, and believed the most effective method to reduce stress and develop one‟s full potential. Transcend means „to go beyond‟: beyond thought, to a silent reservoir of energy and creativity within. The meditation will help the students in clearer thinking, improved health and a greater sense of self-awareness.

As Dr Taddy Blecher says, „The economics of greatness is that every person who is great can develop a generation of greatness‟. We need to change JSB Vol 1(3) October 2011/ISSN2045-1083 Page 31

mindsets by creating attitudes of self-belief. This is how we make an economic democracy.

ELA BRAC Uganda

Empowerment and Livelihoods for Adolescents

BRAC only entered Uganda in 2006. With partners like mastercard its adult microfinance programme has been scaling fast. Encouragingly so too has its ELA programme for youth (mainly girls).

The Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) programme started in Uganda in 2008. There are now hundreds clubs for vulnerable Ugandan teenage girls and young women. The programme provides a safe place for them to socialise and take part in group activities as well as a forum for life-skills training.

The programme uses the life-skills course themes offering 10 storybooks for use in the clubs as teaching tools. The stories are based on recent life accounts from the girls themselves which we asked them to share or life experiences of those in their society and write them down. Their writing was later used as interactive stories to discuss at clubs.

The girls are able to freely socialise and share each other‟s experiences, as well as find support for dealing with personal challenges. The clubs act as both social spaces, where girls can win positive recognition from their peers, and training venues for skills development courses. Each club organises daily team sports, such as netball, as well as dancing and other recreational pursuits. JSB Vol 1(3) October 2011/ISSN2045-1083 Page 32

Adolescent Leaders

The clubs and the training courses are run and managed by the adolescents themselves. Two girls from each club are selected and trained by BRAC supervisors to be adolescent leaders. They have to be at least 19 years old. These leaders are responsible for management of all the clubs‟ activities and conducting the training courses. Training for the leaders covers facilitation and life skills and is provided through:

Six days basic training

Six days training on conducting life-skills training

One day refreshers (bi-monthly)

One day orientation

One day refresher for life-skills training

Life Skills Training Course

The life skills training course is offered to all the girls attending the clubs. The goal of the training is to equip adolescents with the necessary knowledge and skills to improve their lives and to prevent early marriage. The objectives of this course are:

To coach adolescent girls to be conscious, conscientious and confident citizens

To raise their awareness of relevant social issues such as gender imbalance, early marriage and drug addiction

To enhance understanding of general health, hygiene, HIV/AIDS and reproductive health

To develop leadership skills

To develop negotiation and conflict resolution skills

Income Generation Skills Training

Older girls, who are out of school, are able to choose a training course in one income generation activity that is of interest to them. As many of the centres are in rural areas, the courses are mostly linked to agriculture. The following types of courses have proven to be beneficial and appropriate for girls entering into microfinance for the first time:

Agriculture training on cultivating local crops

Vegetable cultivation

JSB Vol 1(3) October 2011/ISSN2045-1083 Page 33

Poultry rearing

Tailoring

Hairdressing

Trading services

The courses are designed in the context of the local economies and offer several options to each girl. In our experience, the adolescents are keen observers of market opportunities. They are given training on basic market analysis techniques and are encouraged to select a business that suits them. BRAC has found that a lack of financial literacy is a constraint to adolescent empowerment. So adolescents also receive training in financial literacy before getting a loan. The three-day course includes savings, budgeting, financial services, financial negotiation and earning money.

Appropriately Designed Microfinance

The key differences between ELA and BRAC‟s regular microfinance programme are the targeted age groups and the average loan size. The average loan size of ELA is much lower compared to a comparable loan cycle in the regular microfinance programme.

The unique features of the adolescent microfinance programme are:

Credit officers who are female adolescents

Smaller first loan sizes compared to adults

16 years is the minimum age for borrowers (in compliance with financial regulations).

When a girl applies for a loan, a BRAC loan officer visits her business and determines its worth and her ability to pay back a loan. Upon approval, the loan applicant will typically start with a loan between 50,000 Ush (US$20.83) to 100,000 Ush (US$41.67), depending on her business. The girls who take ELA loans continue to receive support from their fellow ELA members and BRAC mentors, and over time become eligible to borrow larger sums of money. ELA girls are starting food stall businesses selling local Ugandan specialities, others are delving into jewelry, hairdressing or makeup businesses, cooking locally desired fast foods.

When I first met Muhammad Yunus, he inspired me with three action-oriented directions: nothing is impossible, devil's in the contextual details, so often the greatest micro-entrepreneurial revolution involves a macro and micro partnering jigsaw that cannot come together until youth and you search out one missing macro piece.

Here‟s an illustration formed round the intricate partnerships of Grameen Nursing College and its exciting decade-long destination of end nurseless villages. Dr M Yunus had travelled to Glasgow in 2008 because his close associate economist, Dr Zasheem Ahmed had promised him some university partnerships. On arrival, Yunus bantered I hope the Scots are going to come up with an action project not just a lot of theoretical economics even though it is extremely kind to be asked to give a lecture celebrating the quarter of a century since Adam Smith wrote the Theory of Moral Sentiments.

Zasheem had been expecting that question. [Sir] Glasgow Caledonian trains an awful lot of the nurses for the UK National Health Service (NHS). Why not ask the principal to loan you its chief nurse educationist and start up the most practical womens‟ healthcare education and training institution: Grameen Nursing College. You have thousands of secondary girl scholars in the Bangladeshi villages who would love to be trained up as nurses and serve the growing number of Grameen rural health centres, eye hospitals, etc.

Yunus jumped on the partnering opportunity arranging a quick visit to two of the foundations whose global mission is branded "girl effect" – Nike Foundation and the Buffett family‟s Nova. So the Grameen College partnership got assembled and started up in under 12 months with first cohort of 40 girls belonging to Grameen microcredit borrowers‟ families from remote Bangladeshi villages. The relationships in the villages, the partnerships with JSB Vol 1(3) October 2011/ISSN2045-1083 Page 35

universities, and funding from world‟s leading foundations make as near a perfect collaboration partnership jigsaw as can be.

Indeed, Grameen‟s goodwill multiplies through hundreds of thousand village hubs and its direct relationships with youth make it a fast performing partner for „girl effect‟ foundations around the world - witness how Nike Foundation became one of the partners in starting up Grameen Nursing College.

Yet the partnering possibilities are destined to grow and grow from communities up. Yunus‟ number one social business technology partnership - Grameen Intel has a priority focus on what distant village monitoring can nurses, mobiles and world experts link in together relating to life-critical moments in maternal and infant healthcare.

And yet none of this would have been possible without the deep roots in the village. As well as Grameen‟s secondary scholarship programme, BRAC‟s original two rural networks involved informal primary schools and para-retailers of medical knowledge who emerged out of the need to distribute the oral rehydration solution that costs cents to make but needs the mother to know what to do to stop diarrhoea from killing her infant. So yes Bangladeshi rural children grow up more interested in healthcare education practices than many; even so the end nurseless village partnership looks like one that many world class microcredit networks have the grassroots trust multipliers and global partnering action credentials to multiply.

The Grameen Nursing College is the type of initiative that I see as win-win-win in every worthwhile way, though it will not resonate very much with those that worship the capitalist market economy!

As I see it the Grameen Nursing College initiative has win 1 because it improves human capital by training rural girls; win 2 because they can work to improve the health in a society ... huge value; and win 3 is a huge reduction in the cost of doing good health in a village, facilitates early intervention, etc.

poland invites EU to celebrate yunus microcredit

EU supports social business

European Commission president meets Yunus


Strengthening social business and promoting innovative methods of accessible finance are not only a matter of justice but also a concrete way to help the poorest of the poor, European Commission President José Manuel Barroso has said.

He said social business is also “a smart investment in our shared future. The European Commission will therefore continue its substantial aid to microcredit projects across the globe.”

The European Commission president made the remarks after a meeting with Nobel Laureate Prof Muhammad Yunus at his office in Strasbourg in France on Wednesday, said a statement from Yunus Centre yesterday.

They talked about the role of the EU in promoting microcredit and social business across the world. Prof Yunus thanked Barroso for his support for social business that could be a concrete way to solve social problems around the globe.

The two also discussed the introduction of appropriate laws and regulations in the European Parliament that would support social business.

After the meeting, Barroso told the press: "I would like to express the EU's recognition for the successful work of Prof Yunus, whose tireless commitment deserves our profound respect.”

Yunus also attended a session in the European Parliament. The president of the parliament interrupted the parliament proceedings to announce the presence of Yunus as a distinguished guest. The parliament greeted him with a big applause.

Later, he was received by Parliament President Jerzy Buzek in the latter's chamber. In a statement Buzek said: "Microcredit should be supported around the world. I would like to welcome in particular the microcredit facilities in Bangladesh -- the native country of Prof Yunus.”

Buzek, also former Polish prime minister, praised the concept of social business, pioneered by Prof Yunus, and hoped to work on ways to help new partners connect with social business.

He invited the Grameen Bank founder to Poland to introduce social business to the business leaders in his country with an offer to organise the tour.

experts wnated to share in tracking india gov's goal to restore true microcredit

(remember manmohan singh may be he is a world class microeconomist)


India to regulate microfinance

The government’s proposed bill to bring the `22,000-crore microfinance industry under the regulation of a single entity — the Reserve Bank of India — has been widely welcomed, both by the industry and the public at large. In fact, the biggest listed name in the industry welcomed the move and saw its shares jump by 20 per cent on the day the proposed bill was announced. The government has invited comments on the bill from the public and will finalise it after taking these into account. Bringing the industry under one regulator was a long-felt need because if each state has its own rules and regulations, the situation can be pretty chaotic. The Reserve Bank deputy governor, Mr K.C. Chakrabarty, had said a few days earlier: “If we don’t act under a common set of regulations (for the microfinance industry), it won’t be practical to work. Five states having five different laws on the same subject will have practical difficulties for the industry.” Till a Central law is in place, the Andhra-type situation can arise again, and this will nullify whatever the RBI is trying to do to bring some order, he pointed out. AP is a classic example: the state government had passed an ordinance that contained stringent regulations for the industry to follow. Not surprisingly, it was up in arms as it was unable to collect crores of rupees from borrowers. The AP government, however, was not wrong to enact such an ordinance — its move had followed complaints about the use of muscle power against those who had failed to pay back loans, and subsequent suicides by borrowers who could not pay up. There was also a considerable amount of misuse of funds as borrowers in some cases had used the loans to pay back others from whom they had borrowed money, something called “evergreening” in banking terminology. This was far removed from the original concept of microfinance — as developed by its pioneer, Bangladesh’s Nobel Prize-winning Grameen Bank founder Muhammed Yunus, popularly known as the father of microfinance. The industry was accused of borrowing cheap from the banks and lending at exorbitant rates — of between 30 to even 60 per cent. It was not even sure if the borrowers, who were predominantly women, were really made financially independent or were able to have a sustainable business such as vegetable vending, which was the principal objective of microfinancing. It is to be hoped that the new bill will also provide for the independent monitoring of end users of loans — as it is absolutely vital for the borrowers to be made financially stable. Microfinance is in a way the device which can make possible “inclusive growth” — the mantra of both the Reserve Bank and the UPA government. The argument that the microfinance industry had tried to make was that it was being targeted by politically powerful moneylenders, who had a thriving business until the MFI firms came along. There may or may not be any truth in this, and it is for the government to act against usurious moneylenders. But this certainly cannot be used to justify the way some of the microfinance companies have behaved. This bill will hopefully go a long way in regularising the industry and in laying down guidelines so that the industry is able to fulfil its true objective — of helping the urban and rural poor as well as the disadvantaged. It gives the RBI the power to register microfinance companies and set benchmark and performance standards for the entire industry to follow.

 
 

Can microcredit fuel jobs in crisis-hit Europe?

By Timothy Large -- Fri Jul 8, 2011

LONDON (TrustLaw) - Say "microcredit" and many people think of small loans to the rural poor in developing countries -- basket weavers in Bangladesh, or dairy farmers in India.

But advocates say if restrictive regulations were lifted, it could just as easily help the unemployed in Europe, where a sovereign debt crisis and rising interest rates threaten to compound stubbornly high jobless figures?

It could help those with pitiful credit scores and lack of collateral, who don't stand a chance of getting loans from traditional lenders, pull themselves off welfare by starting their own businesses.

"Small credit is not new but it has sort of disappeared in many European countries," said Maria Nowak, founder and former president of Adie International, the biggest micro-finance institution (MFI) in Western Europe.

"And it's important to bring it back again because in fact the economy is changing from an industrial type of economy towards a service-based economy. Of course you can't develop industry in small production units but you can do it for services, and then microcredit becomes really important."

Originally developed by Nobel Prize-winning Bangladeshi economist Muhammad Yunus, who founded his pioneering Grameen Bank in the 1970s, micro-lending has become a global phenomenon.

But it has been slow to take off in Europe where regulations don't favour MFIs.

"Europe has too many barriers, often well intentioned, to the development of small-scale entrepreneurship," said David Syed, a senior partner at law firm Orrick who has advised the United Nations on microcredit.

"I would very much like to see the harmonisation of rules governing microcredit to promote a single and simple regulatory framework which protects the purpose of microcredit as a tool to assist the most challenged layers of our population to come out of poverty through productive means."

That goal is reflected in the work of 20 law firms brought together by TrustLaw (www.trust.org/trustlaw), a legal news service run by Thomson Reuters Foundation, for a major study on the regulatory obstacles to microcredit across the EU's 27 member states.

Led by law firms Orrick and Latham & Watkins, the consortium is working on a country-by-country report to be published by TrustLaw later this year.

Paris-based Adie plans to take the report to the European Commission in November to advocate for sweeping changes to regulations across Europe.

MONOPOLY ON LENDING

The European Commission estimates there are some 18 million micro-enterprises in member states, employing 37.5 million people or about 30 percent of the overall workforce. Micro-enterprises contribute 1.1 trillion euros ($1.6 trillion) to the European economy.

A micro-enterprise is defined as a company employing fewer than 10 people, while microcredit is a loan of less than 25,000 euros ($36,000).

Advocates of regulatory change point to the European Commission's new 10-year plan to boost economic growth and create jobs, known as Europe 2020, as an opportunity to integrate microcredit into EU priorities.

Among the reforms MFI are calling for, Adie's Nowak said it was vital to break monopolies on lending. In Germany, for example, only banks or specific financial institutions can grant loans, meaning MFIs can only act as agents.

"The challenge is not to enter into competition with banks," she said. "It's rather to be a sort of entry point for people who do not have access to banks into the banking sector."

She called for a softening of usury rules capping interest rates on small loans, arguing that existing rates were "too low to make the system sustainable".

Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Sweden all have usury rules.

Nowak said other countries should follow France's example by allowing MFIs to borrow from banks for the purposes of on-lending to micro-enterprises. Throughout much of Europe, MFIs can only lend out of their own equity.

The TrustLaw report details a catalogue of other obstacles facing micro-enterprises including complex registration procedures for the self-employed, few tax breaks and little exemption from social insurance charges.

    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 .

    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

    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
    what's different about nov 2011 is 4 top directorates of the EU have nailed their future reputation to this search -more

    The End of the EU part 1 http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/2012/06/paul-krugman-on-europe-doing-the-unthinkable.html

    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.
