=====INTRODUCTION
 
It is said: when Bangladesh’s poorest village mothers first experimented with mobile connectivity in 1996 they analysed each day whether they could get better prices for their fresh produce in neighbouring farmers markets than their own. When Jack Ma integrated villagers into ecommerce,  they analysed whether they could get better prices  anywhere in China. By 2003 when Taobao platform started up, although chinese villages were the most isolated places in the country, they were served by sufficient roads for trucks to deliver them goods from the city. Jack Ma sorted out logistics so the vans never again returned to the cities empty.
 
TechinAsia.com: Although eBay had the headstart in China through Eachnet back in 2002, Taobao (founded by Alibaba in 2003) still managed to win the battle through its ‘free of charge’ strategy to compete with Eachnet’s listing fee model. By 2008, Taobao owned more than 80 percent of China’s online retail market share while Eachnet owned only 8 percent.
 
This is how a daughter of a villager from Chairman Mao’s home province describes the evolution of this new entrepreneurial freedom:
 
E-commence and Internet are now making a huge revolution in Chinese rural areas.  The rising up of Rural E-commence(Taobao Village), however, starts from the countryside strategy of Alibaba.
 
Chair Mao took over the regime of China through uniting rural areas to encircle the cities. However, Jack Ma used the opposite strategy, making Alibaba the largest retailing trading platform.
 
Rural E-commence, the next tipping point of Chinese economy growth! By 2014 Ali Baba’s rising exponential is  a E-commence system in 1000 counties and 100000 villages. Tsinghua University research 2015 latest analysis of the TaoBao platform is at http://i.aliresearch.com/img/20160126/20160126155201.pdf

2 Jack Ma’s Major Social Enterprises
3 Why some of China ’s biggest business leaders value sustainability goals most
4 What is Village (Poverty System) in China
5 Why Village technologies matters to Yale’s 500 Serve China Postgraduates
 
1.1 Ali Baba’s Jack Ma has started to issue nation by nation invitations to partner in a skills college for conscious coders and small enterprise value chain redesigners linking village poverty youth/girl entrepreneurs . Example invitations include New Zealand and Southern Germany . 

JACK MA APR 2016:"We have Ali Baba University. We would either have courses in New Zealand or invite the entrepreneurs in New Zealand to stay in China for two weeks for training." "The second space is : we're going to open an Ali Baba business embassy next year in New Zealand."
 
1.2 Newsletter 2 aims to report back –how prominent is Ali Baba University Story among future of education solutions being presented UN 18 September by Gordon Brown, Jack Ma and 30 other pro-youth national leaders. We will also aim to feature update on how Ma’s 20 years as an English language teacher impacts his belief in youth languages exchanges as integral to uniting skills needed for realizing sustainability goals sans frontieres
 
2.1 Jack Ma’s primary question on seeing the worldwide web on his first visit to usa in 1995 – was how can www be used out of China to create jobs? Jack is brilliant at timing next massive social enterprise opportunities.   Ali Baba’s quests to grow people’s livelihoods have so far included:
 
2.2 ecommerce platforms including Taobao designed for the smallest village enterprise to be included
 
2.3 Alipay china’s first digital payment system ( while he did IPO of  Ali Baba, Jack decided strategically critical that he retain private ownership of Alipay and its continuing design around poverty alleviation)
Today Alipay process half a trillion dollars of transaction annually – 5 times more that the country’s second biggest system Tenpay and 20 times more than traditional banking’s UnionPay
 
2.4 Ant Financial and Yu’e Bao  –more economical savings and loans for citizens with an increasing philanthropic culture including a fund for poor women entrepreneurs and some extraordinary partnerships geared to the future of china’s poverty alleviation
Ant Financial and the Microfinance Management arm of China’s Foundation for Poverty Alleviation (CFPA), China’s largest and most influential non-governmental organization that specializes in poverty alleviation, have reached a strategic co-operation agreement to expand a model that takes targeted measures to help people lift themselves out of poverty with the aid of the internet and now blockchain tech to more than 300 national and provincial counties within three years.
 

Wall Street Journal April 2016: Ant Financial Raises $4.5 Billion in Largest Private Tech Funding Round

China’s Ant Financial raises fresh funds at a roughly $60 billion valuation.

Ant Financial is one of Ma’s pathways for investing in regional models beyond Chiuna intent on bottom-up financing to end poverty

As China’s richest man, Jack Ma has become one of end poverty’s biggest investors and educators.

 
2.5 On his 50th birthday Jack declared his main wish to spend more of his time accelerating his sustainability goals partnerships – in July, he hosted Chinas first philanthropy summit with 1000 guests including Scotland’s Gordon Brown (whose alma mater like Adam Smith is Glasgow University) – next , New York September 18 Ma participates as a lead commissioner on the UN’s and Gordon’s future of education
 
China Capitalism. 40 years ago all businesses were state owned. Today 75% of economy is led by private entrepreneurs. Most billionaire leaders originally founded their companies to help develop Chinese peoples leap into the 21st century and still regard their sector’s sustainability consequences as their primary purpose. 
 
3.1 It helps of course that Jack Ma introduction of the web to China sets the benchmark of what collaboration entrepreneur networking and experiential learning can do. And that party leader Xi Jinping has chartered his signature decade: continuing to demand hi-trust entrepreneurs lead the country’s development clarifying each market sector’s most sustainable purpose.

sounds great thanks king -and please see BAIDU footnote on  "one of the rock stars who make things happen"


have you ever seen a JUICE event; i am confident we would like to know exactly what needs to come together at a space for jayfus to want to juice'

is it something he would ever do in boston or NY (brooklyn or bronx) with johns choice of co-hosts or targeting of audience


or which of these satellite china cities can we juice up with ali baba's entrepreneur fund http://www.ent-fund.org/en/global/home

chris


am i right in thinking that juice is like a club or hub but without an everyday physical mailbox?

a list of juice projects would be another way to improve understanding; i think jayfus has said makers textiles are one area ; as you know amy and peters friend lee wainright invented the whose category of extextile; i see that mit recently hosted 5 days
 of fablabs one day of which was on textiles

mit has also licensed about 5 cities in the world to be fablab cities and one of them is among the top 3 that amy's and dianne davies network targets namely shenzhen

if i am right about how far ahead china entrepreneurs  are in linking youth to sustainability jobs, tours to go and make the best first us-china sister city connections will become very big business - it would be absolutely tragic if we dont lead that new educational exchange sector

The Greatest Collaboration Game Ever Played by the Human Race

More than anything else connectivity which you are born into by your family determines whether your life will be poor or fulfilling, unsafe or safe

 

 

Poor

Potentially fulfilling

safe

Exponentially at risk of becoming unsafe

Happy and free

unsafe

Miserable and trapped

Not sustainable for children and families

 

 

Between 2016 and 1946 the world invested 1000 times more in being digitally connected.

This introduces 2 changes:

Increasingly livelihoods/communities having one of the two benefits of connectivity don’t exist

 

Old variables that democracies told people they should vote between are of lower order significance to community as well as individual wellbeing than whether your public servants encourage everyone to be curious about how connectivity determines trade. If you read the last chapter of Keynes book on systems you will find that he explains what futures will be possible fir children are exponentially locked in by the “economic” systems that ruled over them.  Paradoxically old quarterly metrics of economic strength conditioned by amount of things produced and consumed do not help young people work on the cultures and trust-flows of being the sustainability generation in the hyper connected world. Fintech and edutech are pivotal. And you could define the race we parents have placed young oeopke in tday means that increasinglt the 2 options for life wont both exist – either nearly everyone will be happy and free or nearly everyone will be miserable and trapped. Actually all of this was first foreseen to be the species defing challenge of the early 21st C at the time of the moon landing

 

If parents were to have invested in the media determinants of sustainability tere would need to be this sea change in education. Most adolescents up would not be trapped in classrooms. Ironically the peoples in the middle of the moon race in the 1960s are not those best positioned to mediate the sustainability goals race.

 

TO BE OR NOT TO BE

Its still the case that everyone and every community needs to linkin. But if your political partiues are arguing over whether you should wall yourself in from the rest of the world that is a sign that your whol epolitical system neither values trust with openness and curiosity. The fifth of the world born Chinese happen to have more experience in evolving with rapidly chnaing connectivity than anyone else. They know they need to share this experience with peoples and cultures everywhere. They know they cannot just free themselves from colonisaion and over-carbonisation.. what every parent need to demand is schools everywhere hosts debates on the futures connected by coastela belts and overland railroads [including the other pipelines such as telcoms cables, celan water, green energy that engineers can straight-line across mother earth’s planet. Privided we are modest enough to listen to the agme rules the chiense have discovered, this is a game every community can play. Its actually more critical than any other game you will see at the Olympics or world cups. Shall we start mapping how to play it? 
 why is it hard to find purposeful investment models in net gen youth - the greatest productivity opportunity ever
well growing youth's productivity takes models on different audit cycles than corporates have spun round modern 90-day extraction spreadsheets - as first proved in norman macrae's 1954 book on the London Capital market- and when it comes to governments they are not elected by youth so i have you ever any 2 leading tv-age political parties ever quarrel over investing in youth? Because bipolar arties have no incentive even to consider such an issue (www.simpol.org  list other issues national politicians are least able to progress  ) 
Conclusion first surveyed in The Economist 1972 from which genre Entrepreneurial Revolution was founded: when people design other economic models than 90-day corporates or bi-polarised government congreses, then you'll joyfully find the greatest investment opportunities ever - we will illustrate this in 10 markets coming soon
what is the greatest mathematical error in the world? Given Keynes findings: increasingly world is ruled only by economics - and so economics either designs or destroys the futures peoples want most - the greatest mathematical error would be if 95% of the world's 10000 biggest organsaitions were governed by metrics and rewards that were not designing futures peoples want most! When you watch the nightly news in countries where tv is edited by views of big corporations or giovernments, analysis is false wherever it implies that the economy is uilt only by corporations and government. A place's future growth is actually far more dependent on whether families/communities are investing in their children's future productivities and whether natural assets are being sustained. Value multiplying principles on how society build economies that are being torn assunder include- finding from London Capital Market -a place can only grow over time if capital is striuctured from family's savings to in invest in that place's next generation's productivity. Other longitudinal factors exaplining growth - the two greatest explainers of a places growth are caused by lengethening people's healthy lifetimes and if historically a place has had a large precenhtage of underemployed people reducing this. It is observable that Asia has grown in last few decades by using these principales and western nations' errant economic models is doing the opposite. The way to cure this error is to map market by market in such a way that societies demand's and productivities are fully integrated with other value exchnage coordinates- and the whole market is assessed around the purpose that peoples most want it to be designing for the future. For more on the 2 branches of economics 1) designing, 2) destroying futures peopels want most - click here 1 2 discuss. Pro-Youth Economics : Change agendas compiled over 40 years of Entrepreneurial Revolution dialogues devined by asking what changes can link together 10 times greater economic potentiual of the net generation from past industrial age potential of separated nations are here.

 Sustsinability as a literacy every child had an education right to be curious about did not start until after world war 2

The main lessons of world war 2 were:

we could not afford another world war: Japan , and West Germany were set up as two of the first nations forbidden from entering an arms race. Their citizens had a lot of work to do to rebuild from nothing but one advantage, unlike other highly edycated nations 20+% of their taxes would not be spent on arms

there would be a need for all nations to go beyond colonisation ( an economic model where trade of colonised nations is designed around wins the empire needs - ie trade is not being designed as win-wins and is not reguated to prirtise assistane to communities previously excluded from electricity grids and other life develoing infrastructures)

in 1946 it was not globally recognised that mother earh would also need humans to go beyind carbonistaion - however it started to be understood that nations should not get bigger by intentionally locking other nations into trades that plundred any nations natural resources)

 The year before the moon landing friends of The Economist's Norman Macrae annouced Entrepreeurial REvolution as a more transparent way of designing 21st c sutsainability goals into how human beings integrtaed every community into worldwide connectvity. The hypothesis of ER was the coming moon landing would cause a doubling of investments oin communications technolgy every 7 yeras - ie a moores law which maintained over 70 years 2016 versus 1946 would mean spending(2**10)  over 1000 times more of peoples monet and time on coms tech. At the time of the moon landing the expoential consequncies of the machine age industrial revolutioin which had begun slowly in 1700sEngland were that extremely uneven in opportunities to innovate. Whilst a few thousnad computer networked peopels raced to the moon, over a thirfd of the world's people still had no access to electricity grids. We can therefore define any real sustainability goal as valuing some kind of collabiration (often eg educational) aheda of competition..........................................................................................   
 collaborations sdg1 requires - ending poverty requires every community to have access to electricity and other utliity grids, jobs-smart education and infrastrucures freeing win-win trades goal 2 end hunger requires every community to have local food and water security, whatever conflocts with nature or man are surrounding that community goal 3 basic health for all should begin with enxuring that no mother or chimd dis before her time; the wporld should agree what last mile health services are basically networked everywhere by ensuring each community has enough capacity to serve or link them in; we need trasparent accounting of the world's most expensive types of health services- we shoiuld accept that some of these are being trialled only by the suoer-rich but with the promise that a worldwide team of experts is constantly able to review where an innovation can or must now be opened up for all. Many diseases inckuding all infectous dseases should not be siloised. For example multi drig resisatnt tubercoluisis once belived to be too expensic=ve to treat everywhere is now known to: 1) be affordable when treates by its own solution networks- so the most affirdable local health servants of MDTR are tose who are immune because they have survived the disease; leaving MDTR untreated anywhere can create conditions that start or multiply other plagues..  Changing education needs to be seen as the key to all sustainabiity goals in particular those that are lagging in local achevement. If we cant design 1000 times more communicatiosn technolgy to share solutions that are ffirdably working somehwhere then both our media and our education and our parnets investment sustems in chldren are flawed. It would be a pity for human race to gothe way of the diodo through failing to chnage education these are the most exciting times to be alivegenfer equality - logically sustainability is not being a real goal anywherethat treats half of its people as having less productive capability than its other half- china and bamgladesh since 1972 have becpoe world benchmatrks for valuing women likft up half the sky- between them educatrs can find replicable community solutions youth need now to become the sustainability generation...................  
      

 

 

 

 

help resolve 100 ways west's big bankers and edu bureaucrats are destroying our childrens futures context these are 3 billion new jobs that the under 30s needed education to help them connect; here is what learning could have been like in 2024 according tothe stiry we have been debating since our 1984 book published with The Economist - if you dont value these opportunituies for our children to be the sustainability generation you probably wont want to help us its important to map what change 3 generation -grandparent parents and children have been spun by- from the moment it was clear that man was gpoing to land on tghe moon our change scenario has involved spending 1000 times more moiney and lifetimes on the technologies of connectyivy 2016 versus 1946 - in other words a wotld where elarning trade are nodrerless and every national leader should remap what nations to win-win trade with on tge assumption that not every big opportunity will be a geographicval neigbor yet equally the grfeaest rsik will be lettingt neiboring countries fail as nations this system chnage is unprfecdented for any 3 generations to cope with - from this 2 systemic truthes follow 1 learning will need to be huge - indeed unlearning by expert teachers wil be as big a problem as what out children need to learn; the first patern rule of system transfoirmation is that previous systems will be broken in the sense that cretain rules a profesisonal used to apply with 100% certianlty will no longer be fit for all - and the harder the professional tries to apply his old logic the more harm he will do

Do you know about Youth and Yunus's extraordinary innovation of 100000+ hubs? Each started up around 60 poor village mothers and cultivated entrepreneurial families now connecting nearly a quarter of Bangaldesh's population. This exciting contribution to our net generation has been integrated by 3 stages of development

  • between 1976 and 1995 the women structured what they wanted from community banking, knowledge sharing and village markets; 
  • to which mobile telecom connections between hubs were added in 1996 making knowledge of market prices and vital information more economics and empowering co-creation of clean energy and healthcare social busineses;
  • from 2005 yunus 3rd dimension linked in partnerships with worldwide youth and leaders shose organjsaitions had the greaest technology resources. Today these hubs and ready to lionkin with hubs anywhere interested in EOWP - our web tries to chronicle the 10 most exciting projects of each year - but if you think we dont know of one why note tell us at chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk
 

Bangladesh has been world's meta-hub of excellence for optimising sustainability economics of communities since birth of nation in 1971, and since 1996 in mobilising youth's heroic goals united by human race to End Poverty. Since 2005 With Paris, Bangladesh has pioneered the most exciting partnerships using Social Business Models. These map Entrepreneurial Revolution networks beyond 20th C privatization structures. BUT today's worldwide financial crisis requires resolution of professions and political constitutions beyond the dismal 20th C dynamics of externalization

Multiplier Dimensions

 Revolutionary

Entrepreneurial Revolution -we have mapped about 100 species of Entrepreneurial networks since Norman Macrae first branded ER in The Economist 1976 see eg http://erworld.tv and http://normanmacrae.ning.com . Or ask chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk skype chrismacraedc for a more personal tour round innovation and hi-trust leadership databases mapped over a thrid of a century

System Innovation as conflict resolution from multi-lose model to multiwin; from need to know to open source ; from separated systems to networks of multiplying systems

Fortunately system transformation designers have codified extremely simple rules for hosting ER meetings- ones that school children from 9 up can be empowered to do if you let them practice.

Entrepreneurship like parenting works by celebrating

Joy of Economics

Joy of Media

Joy of emotional intelligence in service plus economies and networking across boundaries

Joy of cross-cultural diversity and sustaining nature , communities and investing in youth

 Worldwide

what the net generation's unique opportunity is about as death of distance multiplies all our opportunities to lead productive lives: this paper thanks to youth in New Zealand  references www progress 1984-2011- more downloads on co-creating global sustainability are here

10 times increase in prodiuctivity is possible within one generation IF we unite human race by agreeing to identify and invest in most heroic goals for 2010s 

worldwide maps need to be built bottom-up (self-organisiing) and open (co-organising) like nature.  Networking economics needs to integrate global village markets and knowhow hubs around sustainability's risng exponentials and compound investments in heroic purpose over time.

Projects

These are the ER's new value multiplier when they connect partners whose goals are so exciting there are many win-win-win opportunities to openly network with youth locally and globally 

 

 

    

Yunus at inauguration of Schneider as co-sponsor of world's first chair of social business at HEC:  The future will be decided by two key things that we have right now. One is energy – how we bring our energy out to people’s lives – and the other is information technology. If these two things can be combined together, the world would be a completely different place

2011.10

Celebrating Open Technology Roundtables @ Every Youthful City's most exciting moment of 2010s. We welcome ideas on how to do this. In October 2011 associates of Grameen Solutions and BankaBillion are plioting a technology roundtable at the same time as Washington DC's most joyful youth celebration - Yunus testifying on how youth empowering economics works to create jobs to US congress http://grameeneconomics.com/

For Yunus a roundtable is great if new tech partnerships are signed in ways that advance solutions to millennium goals especially in his nation of Bangladesh.

For our expected host location - French Embassy DC, success depends on linking in to why leaders and youth across France have over the last 7 years helped make Yunus the most joyful economist of our generation (indeed France innovated the 3rd stage of the 100000+ hub economy with Yunus). For Results members whose work with congress got two thirds of congress to issue the inviation to Yunus - working out how this roundtable can help the world microcreditsummit near Madid in Nov 2011 is important.

For yunus earliest technology partners like GrameenIntel and Kysushu Tech Lab recognition for what they have collaboratively started is key. For regional potential partners like MIT we want to make the event joyous as well as productive to explore

For the one or two individuals who do the most background work for youthandyunus in inviting technology's most youth empowering partners, we need some way of making a living from documenting the process for future replication or sharing the case study wherever other technology advances depend on meetings' open spaces.

2011.4 For the greatest citizen portals already helping youth and yunus hub, every way we can popularise their network's flows matters ... portals we recommend celebrating include danonecommunities singforhope yytube.net

2011.9 What do you believe purpose of a country'e education curriculum leads up to? Entrepreneur networks and this leadership flow to support job creation, and investing in youth as a place's next generation. In 1843, The Economist as the entrepreneur's medium was founded around this second gaol as well as the more immediate one of ending hunger caused by corn laws.

However as of 2011, the most expensive educational curriucula in the world - the MBA are now sponsored by macroeconomists and a scary breed of global professions whose sepculative power does the exact opposite of creating jobs and sustaining communities as family's and nature's growth spaces . Hence project 9 the Sustainability MBA and education for all ages.

Right now, we are trying to link together the few universities whose top curricula create jobs eg MIT with yunus partnering universirties (eg HEC, Kyushu) with other nations where leaders - eg India's Kalam - are encouraging youth to tear up any curriculum at any age that is not sustainable. We are also interested in peer to peer movements that re-educate each other such as

We also invite parents ,youth and communities to help explore and celebrate three value multiplying aims:

  • far less examination far more empowerment of youth questioning and social action teamwork
  • adam smith's call to end monoply of universities to award qualifications 
  • reranking league tables of business schools until those that are destroying the most jobs come bottom

Hi-level education isnt help majority of youth in any nation as this Ken Robinson video clarifies

Historican note : our old web www.smbaworld.com came to be tangential pause while the war of goodwill versus badwill world futures spins round yunus.

Green & Other Social Business Stockmarkets

As of 2011 stockmarkets are deeply flawed in terms of sustainability investments

1 "Norman Macrae 1972" The global financial systems will meltdown in 2010s unless we fix the problem -stockmarkets are not just about funding corporations, they mobiise intergeneration savings of society and the compound impacts of built to last aneeded to advance any generation's most exciting goals 

2 investments in carbon and nuclear have been over-bidegeted and investments in green underbudgeted for decades- nowhere is a greater opportunity to recify this than Japan and its need to lead green SB stockmarkets

 
2011.7 BankaBillion - 10 times lower cost banking - in terms of transactional recodre - is now ;possible - this ought to mobilise the greatest entrepreneurial stimulus of all time - which partnership cluster is going to lead bankabillion

 2011.6 Trillion Dollar Auditing Since 1995 every media and innovation lab that I have particpated in has come up with the same conclusion - our children will not be sustainable if professions permit the world's largest organisations to externalise the greatst risk tgheir sector knows most about. The way to deal with this is to make risk audits public at the scetor level of every trillion dollar market

When Keynes general system theory concluded that increasingly only economics rules the world, it is simple to deduce that democracy itself has no reality unless it can serve the public in preventing externalisation

 2011.5 Ignoring the need for energy with a zero footprint is just one of the investments that the top-down world has misdirected for a third of century. Oter critical sectors that are more economical community up than tiop down are education, banking, healthcare- what do we need to do to constitutions. professions and media so that the future conversations of sustainability are never again censored

 

 

 
 2011.4 Because Yunus is youth's number 1 economist its also absolutely critical to map say the (50) leaders around the world who most want to partner resources with Yunus and identify commonalities between projects each leader most wants to help youth and yunus with. Invitations to collaborate around these projects should be at most one click away from whatever is the internet's most favourite homepage, 2011.3 Where royal families exist they should encorage youth and public media to celebrate every leader who pledges to end externalsiation. Who Cares Deepest Who in nations without mature royal families may be the make or break constitutional chalenge of the networking age. Creativity is needed to identify how to turn inactive assets and dormant accounts into social business loans creating work for youth matched to most heroic gaiols youth vote for. For example, every developed nation in Europe at risk of collapsing within the Euro has dormant assets that are far greater than its debt if we all help look. 
 Only multi-win models are worth the future of youth - stories of solidarity, goodwill multiplication, transparency mapping and sustainabiliyu's exponentials

....Gandhiji’s vision for sustainability

"Independence begins at the bottom... A society must be built in which every village has to be self sustained and capable of managing its own affairs... It will be a free and voluntary play of mutual forces... In this structure composed of innumerable villages, there will be ever widening, never ascending circles. Life will not be a pyramid with the apex sustained by the bottom. But it will be an oceanic circle whose center will be the individual. Therefore the outermost circumference will not wield power to crush the inner circle but will give strength to all within and derive its own strength from it.”
- Mahatma Gandhi

ABC OF YUNUS POVERTY MUSEUM RACE

 

A)  3 reasons why Nobel Dr Yunus spends 75% of his time living in a suitcase:

 

1) 18-25 year olds as where yes we can community/micro magic will stand or fall

2) fundraising not necessarily for grameen but places that next need a real micro most

3) Engaging leaders of the most resourced organisations in ideas of what a partnership with a world’s poorest grassroots network could invent to reveal that sector’s most critical sustainability responsibility

 

B) 5 Collaboration games that took third of a century for Bangladeshi networks to design

-roughly signed off in attached -

 

C) 7 most wondrous microsummits –what are the 7 most audacious goals linked to all vital areas of community sustainability and ending poverty we can aim for by 2015

.Miracle on 21st Street - Breaking News February 4

 

21st st DC =  GWU 1500 person auditorium- In the first 15 minutes of dr yunus talk today in DC we were treated to breaking news
today he met bernanke and explained what's wrong with the legal system that must be changed before community banking can thrive at 10 times lower cost across usa
he met the IMF -presumably listening after hearing he'd just talked to bernanke
alex took nearly 50 dc undergraduates to hear yunus; hopefully I have got a cheap video that I will put up tomorrow
i also got dr yunus to sign a peer to peer collaboration mba prospectus- see attached
I thought I had done this in glasgow at end of november but the booklet launching this has been stuck in Dhaka for 4 weeks since dr yunus left on his world tour
I will see mostofa on sunday in london and ask if he can fix this by phone or if I have to go to dhaka to clarify this
at the same time we will fix the youth debrief dialogue day at end of june with yunus
I am not confident this day will work well unless at least 3 (but preferably 4) of alex, alexis, rachel and lauren are there. I can find the travel/hotel costs from my father's microeconomics foundation but understand you have to choose how your configure your summer dfaries
let's see how to question each other on this; I actually love instant chat if we can get everyone there at same time

Dear A&R&M

Do you have some undergrad peers or students in New York and Boston area you could try out this speech of Future Capitalism's First 5 months on. I (with Mostofa and Mark in Dhaka) can try to get the most inspired question to this speech asked so that Dr Yunus makes a 2 minute youtube reply to it. Whether that will be practical in the next 4 weeks I cant promise. It seems to me that absolute prime audience for social actions teamworking is undergraduates while they have 3 years to network together not when they are graduating. It costs under $50 a year to put up webs like http://journalistsforhumanity.com so I would be delighted to sponsor one each in an identity you choose such as YunusNYU or Harvardforpoverty or MFIClubsUSA or LehmanUN - at minimum all we would need to put up as content is the speech and the questions it stimulates among your networks.

I realize that R&As are very loyal to ASA. Its my understanding that Future Capitalism is the combined 30 years-in-the-making knowledge of how to design organizations of 100,000+ community public service workers of Bangladesh and their 25+ million female entrepreneur clients. Social Business model 2.0 is where this really gets interesting but it needs youth around the world to demand this in several easy steps not one quantum leap. As with all Rumors of What's Possible http://rowp.tv/  , maybe I am wrong about the urgency of this network experiment, in which case the faults mine alone , lets fail me/it fast and get on to next FC game.

============================ 142nd MIT Commencement address, by Muhammad Yunus, June 6.2008 http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2008/yunus-0606.html .

Good Morning: It as a very special privilege for me to speak at the commencement ceremony of this prestigious institution. What a wonderful feeling to be here today. To be with all of you, some of the brightest minds in the world, right at a moment when you decide the path you will embark on in life. You represent the future of the world. The choices that you will make for yourself will decide the fate of mankind. This is how it has always been. Sometimes we are aware of it, most of the time we are not. I hope you'll remain aware of it and make an effort to be remembered not simply as a creative generation but as a socially-conscious creative generation. Try it.

I had no idea whether my life would someday be relevant to anyone else's. But in the mid-seventies, out of frustration with the terrible economic situation in Bangladesh I decided to see if I could make myself useful to one poor person a day in the village next door to the university campus where I was teaching. I found myself in an unfamiliar situation. Out of necessity I had to find a way out. Since I did not have a road-map, I had to fall back on my basic instinct to do that. At any moment I could have withdrawn myself from my unknown path, but I did not. I stubbornly went on to find my own way. Luckily, at the end, I found it. That was microcredit and Grameen Bank. Now, in hindsight, I can joke about it. When people ask me, "How did you figure out all the rules and procedures that is now known as Grameen system ?" My answer is : "That was very simple and easy. Whenever I needed a rule or a procedure in our work, I just looked at the conventional banks to see what they do in a similar situation. Once I learned what they did, I just did the opposite. That's how I got our rules. Conventional banks go to the rich, we go to the poor; their rule is -- "the more you have, the more you get." So our rule became -- "the less you have higher attention you get. If you have nothing, you get the highest priority." They ask for collateral, we abandoned it, as if we had never heard of it. They need lawyers in their business, we don't. No lawyer is involved in any of our loan transactions. They are owned by the rich, ours is owned by the poorest, the poorest women to boot. I can go on adding more to this list to show how Grameen does things quite the opposite way.

Was it really a systematic policy æ to do it the opposite way ? No, it wasn't. But that's how it turned out ultimately, because our objective was different. I had not even noticed it until a senior banker admonished me by saying : Dr. Yunus, you are trying to put the banking system upside down." I quickly agreed with him. I said : "Yes, because the banking system is standing on its head." I could not miss seeing the ruthlessness of moneylenders in the village. First I lent the money to replace the loan-sharks. Then I went to the local bank to request them to lend money to the poor. They refused. After months of deadlock I persuaded them by offering myself as a guarantor. This is how microcredit was born in 1976. Today Grameen Bank lends money to 7.5 million borrowers, 97 per cent women. They own the bank. The bank has lent out over $ 7.0 billion in Bangladesh over the years. Globally 130 million poor families receive microcredit. Even then banks have not changed much. They do not mind writing off a trillion dollars in a sub-prime crisis, but they still stay away from lending US $ 100 to a poor woman despite the fact such loans have near 100 per cent repayment record globally. While focusing on microcredit we saw the need for other types of interventions to help the rural population, in general, and the poor, in particular. We tried our interventions in the health sector, information technology, renewable energy and on several other fronts. Since we worked with poor women, health issue quickly drew our attention. We introduced health insurance. We succeeded in developing an effective healthcare program based on health insurance, but have not been able to expand this program because of non-availability of doctors. Doctors are reluctant to stay in the villages. (It has become such a big bottleneck that we have now decided to set up a medical college to produce doctors.) Under the program a villager pays about US $ 2.00 a year as health insurance premium, to get health coverage for the entire family. Financially it is sustainable.

I became a strong believer in the power of information technology to change the lives of the poor people. This encouraged me to create a cell-phone company called Grameen Phone. We brought phones to the villages of Bangladesh and gave loans to the poor women to buy themselves cell-phones to sell their service and make money. It became an instant success. Seventy percent of the population of Bangladesh do not have access to electricity. We wanted to address this issue by introducing solar home system in the villages. We created a separate company called Grameen Shakti, or Grameen Energy. It became a very successful company in popularising solar home system, bio-gas, and environment-friendly cooking stoves. It has already reached 155,000 homes with solar home systems, and aims to reach one million homes by 2012. As we started creating a series of companies around renewable energy, information technology, textile, agriculture, livestock, education, health, finance etc, I was wondering why conventional businesses do not see business the way we see it. They have different goals than ours.

We design our businesses one way, they design theirs in another way. Conventional businesses are based on the theoretical framework provided by the designers of capitalist economic system. In this framework 'business' has to be a profit-maximizing entity. The more aggressively a business pursues it, the better the system functions æ we are told. The bigger the profit, the more successful the business is; the more happy investors are. In my work it never occurred to me that I should maximize profit. All my struggle was to take each of my enterprises to a level where it could at least be self-sustaining. I defined the mission of my businesses in a different way than that of the traditional businesses. As I was doing it, obviously I was violating the basic tenet of capitalist system æ profit maximization. Since I was engaged in finding my own solution to reach the mission of my business, I was not looking at any existing road maps. My only concern was to see if my path was taking me where I wanted to go. When it worked I felt very happy. I know maximization of profit makes people happy. I don't maximize profit, but my businesses are a great source of my happiness. If you had done what I have done you would be very happy too! I am convinced that profit maximization is not the only source of happiness in business. 'Business' has been interpreted too narrowly in the existing framework of capitalism. This interpretation is based on the assumption that a human being is a single dimensional being. His business-related happiness is related to the size of the profit he makes. He is presented as a robot-like money-making machine. But we all know that real-life human beings are multi-dimensional beings æ not uni-dimensional like the theory assumes. For a real-life human being money-making is a means, not an end. But for the businessman in the existing theory money-making is both a means and also an end. This narrow interpretation has done us great damage. All business people around the world have been imitating this one-dimensional theoretical businessman as precisely as they can to make sure they get the most from the capitalist system. If you are a businessman you have to wear profit-maximizing glasses all the time. As a result, only thing you see in the world are the profit enhancing opportunities. Important problems that we face in the world cannot be addressed because profit-maximizing eyes cannot see them. We can easily reformulate the concept of a businessman to bring him closer to a real human being.

In order to take into account the multi-dimensionality of real human being we may assume that there are two distinct sources of happiness in the business world æ 1) maximizing profit, and 2) achieving some pre-defined social objective. Since there are clear conflicts between the two objectives, the business world will have to be made up of two different kinds of businesses --1) profit-maximizing business, and 2) social business. Specific type of happiness will come from the specific type of business. Then an investor will have two choices æ he can invest in one or in both. My guess is most people will invest in both in various proportions. This means people will use two sets of eye-glassesæ profit-maximizing glasses, and social business glasses. This will bring a big change in the world. Profit maximizing businessmen will be amazed to see how different the world looks once they take off the profit-maximizing glasses and wear the social business glasses. By looking at the world from two different perspectives business decision-makers will be able to decide better, act better, and these decisions and actions will lead to a dramatically better world.
 
While I was wondering whether the idea of social business would make any sense to the corporate world I had an opportunity to talk to the chairman of Danone Group Mr. Franck Riboud about this subject. It made perfect sense to him right away. Together we created Grameen Danone company as a social business in Bangladesh. This company produces yogurt fortified with micro-nutrients which are missing in the mal-nourished children of Bangladesh. Because it is a social business, Grameen and Danone, will never take any dividend out of the company beyond recouping the initial investment. Bottom line for the company is to see how many children overcome their nutrition deficiency each year. Next initiative came from Credit Agricole of France. We created Grameen Credit Agricole Microfinance Foundation to provide financial support to microfinance organizations and social businesses. We created a small water company to provide good quality drinking water in a cluster of villages of Bangladesh. This is a joint venture with Veolia, a leading water company in the world. Bangladesh has terrible drinking water problem. In a large part of Bangladesh tubewell water is highly arsenic contaminated, surface water is polluted. This social business water company will be a prototype for supplying safe drinking water in a sustainable and affordable way to people who are faced with water crisis. Once it is perfected, it can be replicated in other villages, within Bangladesh and outside. We have already established an eye-care hospital specializing in cataract operation, with a capacity to undertake 10,000 operations per year. This is a joint venture social business with the Green Children Foundation created by two singers in their early twenties, Tom and Milla, from England and Norway. We have signed a joint-venture agreement with Intel Corporation, to create a social business company called Grameen-Intel to bring information technology-based services to the poor in healthcare, marketing, education and remittances. We also signed a social business joint venture agreement with Saudi German Hospital Group to set up a series of hospitals in Bangladesh. Many more companies from around the world are showing interest in such social business joint ventures. A leading shoe company wants to create a social business to make sure that nobody goes without shoes. One leading pharmaceutical company wishes to set up a joint venture social business company to produce nutritional supplements appropriate for Bangladeshi pregnant mothers and young women, at the cheapest possible price. We are also in discussion to launch a social business company to produce chemically treated mosquito-nets to protect people in Bangladesh and Africa from malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases. Your generation can bring a breakthrough in changing the course of the world.

You can be the socially-conscious creative generation that the world is waiting for. You can bring your creativity to design brilliant social businesses to overcome poverty, disease, environmental degradation, food crisis, depletion of non-renewable resources, etc. Each one of you is capable of changing the world. To make a start all that each one of you has to do is to design a business plan for a social business. Each prototype of a social business can be a cute little business. But if it works out, the whole world can be changed by replicating it in thousands of locations. Prototype development is the key. In designing a prototype all we need is a socially-oriented creative mind. That could be each one of you. No matter what you do in your life, make it a point to design or be involved with at least one social business to address one problem that depresses you the most. If you have the design and the money, go ahead and put it into action.

If you have the design but no money, contact your dean -- he will find the money. I never heard that MIT has problem in finding money when it has a hot idea in its hand. MIT can even create a social business development fund in anticipation of your requests.

I can tell you very emphatically that in terms of human capability there is no difference between a poor person and a very privileged person. All human beings are packed with unlimited potential. Poor people are no exception to this rule. But the world around them never gave them the opportunity to know that each of them is carrying a wonderful gift in them. The gift remains unknown and unwrapped. Our challenge is to help the poor unwrap their gift. Poverty is not created by the poor. It is created by the system. Poverty is an artificial imposition on people. Once you fall outside the system, it works against you. It makes it very difficult to return to the system. How do we change this? Where do we begin ? Three basic interventions will make a big difference in the existing system : a) broadening the concept of business by including "social business" into the framework of market place, b) creating inclusive financial and healthcare services which can reach out to every person on the planet, c) designing appropriate information technology devices, and services for the bottom-most people and making them easily available to them. Your generation has the opportunity to make a break with the past and create a beautiful new world.

We see the ever-growing problems created by the individual-centered aggressively accumulative economy. If we let it proceed without serious modifications, we may soon reach the point of no return. Among other things, this type of economy has placed our planet under serious threat through climatic distortions. Single-minded pursuit of profit has made us forget that this planet is our home; that we are supposed to make it safe and beautiful, not make it more unliveable everyday by promoting a life-style which ignores all warnings of safety. At this point let me give you the good news. No matter how daunting the problems look, don't get brow beaten by their size. Big problems are most often just an aggregation of tiny problems. Get to the smallest component of the problem. Then it becomes an innocent bite-size problem, and you can have all the fun dealing with it. You'll be thrilled to see in how many ways you can crack it. You can tame it or make it disappear by various social and economic actions, including social business. Pick out the action which looks most efficient in the given circumstances. Tackling big problems does not always have to be through giant actions, or global initiatives or big businesses. It can start as a tiny little action. If you shape it the right way, it can grow into a global action in no time. Even the biggest problem can be cracked by a small well-designed intervention. That's where you and your creativity come in. These interventions can be so small that each one of you can crack these problems right from your garage. If you have a friend or two to work with you, it is all the more better. It can be fun too.

You are born in the age of ideas. Ideas are something an MIT graduate, I am sure, will not run out of. The question I am raising now -- what use you want to make of them ? Make money by selling or using your ideas ? Or change the world with your ideas? Or do both ? It is upto you to decide. There are two clear tasks in front of you -- 1) to end poverty in the world once for all, and 2) to set the world in the right path to undo all the damage we have done to the environment by our ignorance and selfishness. Time is right. Your initiatives can produce big results, even lead you to achieving these goals. Then yours will be the most successful generation in human history. You will take your grand-children to the poverty museums with tremendous pride that your generation had finally made it happen. Congratulations, for being part of a generation which has exciting possibilities, and advance congratulations to you all for your future successes in creating a new world where everyone on this planet can stand tall as a human being. Thank you.







Mark : DVD Besteller of Bestgift of all time

Can you find out for me what it costs to start by cutting 1000 or 10000 dvds
 
The idea would be to put Dr Yunus latest' s 2 minute youtube with the Prime Minister on as number 1 feature ; backed up with all the footage you have collected to date (and the footage of the Bagladesh grassroots organisation behind the brand and its heroines over 30 years) so that any SMBA group -or PM's tea party - can start doing the editing of the content whichever way they want to dialogue around it cheers chris macrae

Transcript of The Prime Minister and Muhammad Yunus,
speaking from Number 10 Downing Street,
London April 21 http://www.number-10.gov.uk/output/Page15305.asp  

Scene 1 Greetings
Prime Minister Gordon Brown: Hello How are you, what a pleasure
Muhammad Yunus: It’s a pleasure for me
PM : It’s good to see you (They Shake Hands)

Scene 2 Muhammad Yunus Introduces himself to camera from heart of 10 Downing Street
I am Muhammad Yunus from Bangladesh with Grameen bank. We lend money to extremely poor people for income generating activities. I am suggesting that Africa needs a lot of microfinance programs – tiny loans 30 dollar, 45 dollar 100 dollar – and paid back in weekly installments. It doesn’t need any collateral. It doesn’t need any lawyers into it but the repayment rate is very high: 98% or 99%. Microfinance is very important because it allows people to bring out their own initiative, bring out their own capability. And they can move on their own speed to cerate income, to get out of poverty. And people in Africa are very enterprising people, particularly women. Microfinance focuses on women. Today in Bangladesh within Grameen Bank we have 7.5 million borrowers a- 97% of them women. The Prime Minister is very much aware of it; very supportative of it. So we will discuss how to make it happen in Africa

Scene 3 PM and Dr Yunus relaxing round a cup of tea
PM There is so much goodwill to the work you have been doing, and it is so important

Scene 4 After tea: Muhammad Yunus denouement
At the same time, we will be discussing another concept – the social business : business to do good to people - (show copy of Dr Yunus new bestselling book Creating a World Without Poverty- Social Business, The Future of Capitalism ). This is business where you aim at the social objectives, not for making money for yourself. You cover your cost, make profit but the profit doesn’t go to investors or outsiders but stays with the company to achieve the goal that you set out to help achieve or lead.

There are pieces of celebrating humanity's jigsaw up to 2008 that are well documented - about the Muhammad Yunus and 7 million women's lifelong commitment to ending poverty. He has inspired many to visit Bangladesh's and start to see best for the world grassroots organisations led such as  30000 employee strong 30+ years end-poverty system maps of Grameen, BRAC, (you tell us info@worldcitizen.tv) . Increasingly crowds of New Yorkers from 9 and up believe he offers the simplest business school curriculum to lend your brain to.

futcap1.jpgHi My New Years resolution week in Dhaka at the start of 2008 ended with my suggestion to Dr Yunus that I focus on Rumors of What's Possible.

Across the World Class Brands Network which readers of my book strated in 1990, I dont mind being a stalking horse for: what si capitalisms' or economics' truth and nonsense? - as long as the debate includes all sides especially community-up that western global's mass media gives no real voice to. Unlike dad, I have never studied classical economics but as mathematician I can simply map what sustainability probabilities compound forward from goodwill and badwill systems depending on how embedded conflicts are, and how much image-making is taking over from purposeful reality-making

Report from New York April 008: Peter, Rachel - Do either of you have James' address the guy out of Cornell now working for new york city - I find there are various yunus & MFI relevant institutes at Cornell and would like to see if he knows of them - Cornell is precisely the kind of place Dr Yunus would come and talk if they offered him some long term exchange of reputations and experiences. There is also the second round of his book launch in USA that goes after major seats of academia though I dont know when that is thanks again for wonderful evening and 3 hours of debate on deep communities' chances of surviving the globalization we design in the next 5 years -its good to see that New York has at least 20 people who get microeconomics' sustainability investment maps even if one is a repentant Bear Stearns (repentant is good, when you think what peter and I have seen inside coopers & lybrand in 80s and 90s); its also amazing to hear that other Bangladesh grassroots networks are following grameen's example and setting up foundations in america 

Next time we meet : one  more topic  for our roundtable : egrameen.com . Yunus' next community-up maps buimdling on his 68 years as Win-Win-Win exploere in chief connect microhealth, micro-edu, microagri, microgov, micro consumer branded goods. I believe that if we are to get back to sustainability world, Bangladesh's knowledge will have probably done more than any other place to put us back on track; actually I have nearly got my father to write an article of Bangladesh, this decade's exponential up exemplar of japan in 1960. ASK FOR COPY: If you feel this draft of the article will cheer any banglasedhi friends on, feel free to relay it

THE IMPORTANCE OF DR YUNUS By Norman Macrae
The Nobel Peace Prize for 2006 was controversially awarded in Oslo to a "banker for the poor" in once basket case Bangladesh. Since the microcredit system pioneered by this Doctor Muhammad Yunus really has raised record millions of Bangladeshi women from the world’s direst poverty, Yunus was greeted on his recent visit to London largely by the misunderstanding Left. But as an octogenarian Thatcherite, I also had lunch with him and thrill fully to his stated aim to "harness the powers of the free market to solve the problems of poverty", and his brave belief that he can "do exactly that". This apparent appearance of a viable system of banking for the poor has important implications we had better start by examining how microcredit almost accidentally came about.

START IN A STARVING VILLAGE
 During Bangladeshi’s terrible famine year of 1974, Dr Yunus ( who had attained his doctorate in economics in a fairly free market American university) was back at his 1940 birthplace of Chittagong, Professor of Economics at the university there. He took a field party of his students to one of the famine threatened villages. They analysed that all 42 of the village’s small businesses (tiny farm plots and retail market stalls) was indeed going bust unless they could borrow a ridiculously tiny total $27 on reasonable terms. First thought was to give the $27 as charity. But Yunus lectured that a social business dollar that had to be paid back from careful use in an income generating activity, was much more effective than a charity dollar which might be used only once and frittered away. All of those first 42 loans were fully repaid, and lent back, and after 9 years further experiments Yunus in 1983 founded his Grameen (which means Village) Bank. Its priority was to make loans that were desperately needed by the poor instead of the usual banking priority to make the safest loans to the rich who could provide collateral against what they happened to want to borrow.

In the next 23 years, Grameen provided $6 billion of loans to poor people with an astonishing 99% repayment rate. In 2006, it had seven million borrowing customers, 97% of them women (who tend to be the poorer sex in rural Islamic societies) in 73000 villages of Bangladesh. Microcredit had by then reached 80% of Bangladeshi’s poorest rural families and over half of Grameen’s own borrowers had risen above the absolute poverty line. When a Grameen bank manager goes to a new village, he has entrepreneurially to search for poor but viable borrowers . He earns a star if he achieves 100% repayment of loans, and another star if he attains achievement of the 16 guarantees that all customers are asked to pledge, ranging from intensive vegetable growing through attendance of all children at school, to abolition of dowries. A branch with five stars would often transfer to ownership by the poor women themselves. A branch with no stars would be in danger of closing, so borrowers tend to rally round with suggestions, such as which unreliable repayers to exclude.

An early income generator was the profession of telephone ladies. They borrowed enough to buy a cheap mobile phone from a Grameen subsidiary. They would draw fees for phoning to see if more profitable prices for crops were available in a neighbouring village, and from anybody who wanted to hire the phone to contact the outside world. This is a job that could only become important in a microcredit setting; the owner of a mobile phone in richer suburbia would not find many customers to hire her set. Village garment-makers were soon exporting clothes to far countries which made free trade by the importing countries important. One special desire of Yunus was to improve the nutrition of poor children in the villages of Bangladesh, and he formed a social business with the large French food multinational called Danone. Grameen-Danone test marketed to find what sorts of fortified yogurt Bangladeshi children would like. Although Danone at first wanted large plants with refrigerated systems, Grameen won the debate to make then small plants who bought local milk and very cheap local distributors who knew which families had children who might buy the cheap yogurt fresh. Danone had to agree not to pay any dividend from the sales of the yogurt in Bangladesh so as to keep the price cheap at a few US cents per cup, but its $1 million investment remains returnable and it has learnt a lot about sales of a new product in poor countries.

THE FUTURE
 Will such Social Businesses spread as far as Yunus hopes? I doubt this. Great leaps like Microsoft’s invention of good software are often made by small but initially hugely profit making small businesses. But it is easy to see a Grameen-Microsoft social business providing software suitable for poor countries where even adults are often illiterate. My view is that the Grameen experiment may prove to be most important for what might be called its macroeconomic impact. When more formal banking for the rich is intermittently in crisis, this may be happening now. In this 2008, conventional bankers to the rich have trotted in panic behind the American giants who grossly mislent on subprime mortgages, and then sold these loans on in "securitised", and exploding and even "derivitavised" packages to weaker funds and banks who have frantically tried to disguise from their shareholders and from themselves how unmarketable and worthless some of these assets are. If all bank statements in early 2008 had been utterly and appallingly honest, runs by depositors out of them could already have accelerated out of control. Such banking crises are likely to recur before and after next January when a new American president takes office. To judge from the protectionist economic nonsense at least two of the three candidates have talked in the primaries, a tyro president would be quite liable to bumble such a crisis into an even a 1929-1933 type of world slump. Britons should remember that our prime minister in 1929 was our last previous dire right wing Labour Scot, and that he had to coalesce in 1931 with a Baldwin who was as deaf as today’s Cameron to why it is better to widen budget deficits in a slump.

A lesson in how to run village businesses and not to handle bank crises comes also from Japan. When I wrote my first book on Japan’s economy nearly 50 years ago, Japan had about two dozen lightly taxed exporting multinationals who bought their components marvellously cheaply. The car factories bought their ball bearings from tiny village firms, and the banks attached to Toyota etc kept on lending even when some peasant’s first bearings did not past muster but gradually propelled him to work with or under a brighter neighbouring peasant whose products did. That seemed inefficient to American experts and in the early 1960’s I had a translated debate on Tokyo television with an American who said that such slack banking would ruin the country. I rejoiced as Japan then quintupled its living standards in the next twenty years and its banks became temporarily the most powerful and prosperous in the world. The crash came when in the late 1980s American business schools convinced Japanese factories that components must be bought just-in-time. The big banks turned to financing suppliers who could do this (which were not those striving to be cheapest). Banks lent mainly to new firms who could provide collateral which meant to richer ones. Once they were lending mainly to the rich they blew up such a bubble that the nearest golf course to Tokyo was said to have a greater land value than the whole state of California. When this bubble burst, all the banks had bad debts, which the government helped them to hide so Japanese living standards stop rising fast since circa 1989. This is the threat to the whole rich world today.

Macraes' 2008 Diary: Special Events
6 January Dhaka: After the most astonishing days of my business life, in which I heard how DR Yunus and team have a 3 year plan to connect up the half of the world the internet has never served, a relatively easy feat after connecting up the half of the world that banking has never served, my last 5 minutes with Dr Y were spent presenting my commitment to an initiative- Rumors of What's Possible  ... After transforming worldwide banking and the internet which of the 98 other biggest markets do womens networks need to micro-entrepreneurially revolutionise. Lets YUnUS 1000 SMBAs in each city spread the rumors -the communal wishes to celebrate humanity - until they become brand realities. Future Capitalism has never been so interesting around this whole planet of ours.


time to celebrate by opening http://egrameen.com/
YUnUS:  perfect your system and open source it with people who come to benchmark how it works - eg about 15 years of Grameen Dialogues:

You and others write up  books on the most empowering and productive system found on the
planet

People 1 2 3 help you form the most practical global summit network ever designed -it helps remove 100 million people frommpoverty over 7 years

Suddenly all fame breaks loose - you win the Nobel prize- and now 50 times more peole read your book. And you find that people love you to come and talk to them all over the world. There is nobody in business - let alone banking - that is trusted from the grassroots up and cross-culturally as much as you. You have accidentally become a 21st C Business Gandhian.

So you write up a book that generalises the maps you used in banking for the poor so that it could start to be applied in any other global market as well as planted by the young in teams doing community services which everyone apart from the mage-makers at the top of the world is applauding. Your methods are open source; the audiences you meet love your personal stories; but the EMP (Educators, Media-men and Professions) studiously ignore you. As Gandhi found they did when he first discovered Stand-Up-for-Whole-Truth 101 years ago

So how do you who can spare 5 top people while 30000 get on with their grassroots service duties network to 6.5 billion people.

Something like this is a question that Dr Yunus started asking at the end of 2007. We visited him in the fisrt week to listen. One idea - very small - ROWP Rumors Of What's Possible

What positive gossip about your wishes for human sustainability can we plant around the world. How can citizens and youth keep on surrounding those who command EMP?

Most of the web pages beyond this home introduction are being transmitted bimonthly Dr Yunus. If you want to see a particular one, ask us. We have password protected them not because they say anything top secret, but we don't have feedback on them as a whole; we are not claiming they are more than one citizen concept of how 5 people and 6.5 million can enteract in each other's participant productions. Indeed mail us at
info@worldcitizen.tv if you have another idea on how to address this ultimate collaboration challenge of our generation, and if we cock it up of the humanity's last few gens.


Can infrastructure projects be more sustainably run as social businesses? Will a new SMBA be the proof of this pudding as well as the answer to Sir Nick Stern's exponential disaster problems? For nearly 2 decades the implementation of privitization projects has been systematically the exact reverse of the benefits for humanity my dad used to argue for in The Economist. Are Bangladesh's BRAC, Grameen and other grassroots models the respectable face of privitisation?

If you have comments on the success or Grameen Mobile or the wish in Dr Yunus book for Cox's Bazaar -we'll publish 20-liners here as long as they are curious to read - mail info@worldcitizen.tv

??Could world’s people vote for Grameen bank to have earned right as first responsible bank empowered to start credit chains?

ROWP3

*Develop Cox’s Bazaar as world class port with similar exponentials up impact for whole region of national neighbours to Singapore 40 years ago.

*Structure this development project as a type 2 social business by dedicating ownership of port to Bangladesh’s poorest women not national government.

Keep Fit Exercises - no not in the Gym! but of the mindset

1 Maps: When & Why do People kill each other, civilisations, species over maps?
Think treasure maps. Think wild west rushs to gold, property, lawyers- how unfair these are in lands where 99% is desert or only support nomadi communities, and 1% is oil or other african gold. The English Empire made a law- still technically on some accountants and other professonal high priests books which made up their monopoly rules from the same imperialism roots - that 10% of children are born illegal (at nomadic families). Globalisation today is being governed round lose-lose-lose maps- tangible accounting (search unseen wealth research begun 2000 Brookings Economics, Georgetown Law School -epicentre Margaret Blair now at Yunus Alma mater Vanderbilt)  spreadsheets numbers and investment into things, but requires people to be booked as costs. In consequence departmental empires developed boxed-in workers looking after themselves not flowing information. The last time NASA lost a challenger, the post mortem mapped 50 different cases of gung-ho people not being able to flow vital info beyond their box.  We've then been treated to a 5 year and order of magnitude more tragic replay of this with the boxed in US GI in Iraq. PLease feel that I try like you to love ordinary people and our whole planet: Iraqi and soldier's families but not those whose systems govern with boxes and look down from a high so that they never learn from life-critical messes they make on the ground. Cross-Culturally, every would be president should spend a few days in an Italian town San Gimignano - please: we dont need to relay history's high rise mistakes of where not to govern mapmaking from over and over - do we?

Trust maps are as valuable as their depth of local detail, and so contextual and communal zero-conflict flows they empower to exchange the most vital info across borders, compounding core truths into the future. Wherever lose-lose-lose global reigns, Q&A can help you see how the biggest organisational systems have never seen even one family of maps that multiply contextual truth, empower passionate service and communal pride. 

Map Mindset Breakthrough
 Let's collaborate around open sourcing a new set of www win-win-win maps. Tell us if you find a more transparent set of maps, but trust me as a maths guy these maps of YUnUS are sufficient unless you can prove otherwise:


YUNUS THREE-IN-ONE Hi-Trust SYSTEMS MAPPING: The Social ABC of Future Capitalism

1 Social Action is a triangle game (3 people relationship team over one year, interacting relentlessly around one agreed human or communal value sustaining goal) – good for youth to start up their life's first project teamwork around since triangle is the smallest subsystem of productive and demanding human relationship mapping


2 Social Business, which is an organisation system model integrating  all communal coordinates of productive and demanding human relationships, except speculative owners who have been removed. Consequently compound purpose ownership sustains value multiplication around deep context through system maps tuning into service celebrating the whole of humanity and planet


3 Future Capitalism where the genius and goodwill of a social business molecule gravitates the best of both worlds: a 30000 person global down system and a 30000 grassroots up one – eg grameen.
