From 1972 my father norman macrae (nicknamed UnacknowledgedGiant of The Economist, founder of Entrepreneurial Revolution) spent rest of his life debating how and why education and china needed to be the 21st c main economies - not just for educators and chinese but all 21st c youth's livelihoods -by uniting open society systems beyond the highly bordered 20th century -for example celebrating 4 global village languages : chinese, english, mother tongue, coding.
OUR OTHER Youth Valuation CATALOGUE- WORLD RECORD JOB CREATORS
Youth surveys have found 5 dimensions which connect JobsRichNetworking
Which place leaders are uniting JRN - fazle abed, Xi-Trump
Which teachers love youth enough to innovate Jobs Entrepreneurial Revolution (worldwide examples are searched annually milliondollarteacheraward; american examples are shannon may (bridges international) founding tech's most economic village school network and Baltimore's al hathaway uniting inner cities so that poorest youth create livelihoods and redesign urban worldwide?
Who are the greatest storytellers helping we the peoples (youth and parents and communities) mediate this change including diversity's money-poor and learning-rich?
Whose investment models or learningopen maps should be celebrated by the 3 generations determining sustainability: youth te half of us under 30, parents and grandparents
100 JRN - searched by young journalists of Chinathanks.com and Eduthanks.com
WHY HELP THIS SEARCH? Education can be far larger economy than the industrial age consumption of things because knowhow can multiply in use (abundant "mass flourishing" value) instead of being used up ( scarcity value). China's 1.3 billion people could be an unstoppable confucian force for good needed to go from being underemployed to helping all youth find worldwide livelihoods
WHAT ARE JOBS RICH NETWORKS (JRN)? We ask for your help in editing these- we feel youth know and connect when they see these. We aim to map 2 types of examples- those who are meta-hubs for many JRN and specific examples of JRN that are good for youth and leaders of sustaining human livelihoods to be participating in
please tell us of your sightings and if you would like to join bracnet, to help co-edit directly please rsvp email@example.com

the curious news of 2015 is that the world is now spending 1000 times more on communications technologies than 1946; the question is now that the costv of carrying round 2 schools in your pocket is way under the 100 dolar laptop- dare we design a world of eduthanks around these 2 types of devices
the 20 dollar smart phone
the 20 dollar next generation RACHEL
Both of these questions raise 2 sorts of questions- what happens to any place where teachers unions block this revolution in learner centred teaching? how do we bridge the last gaps - today the online service provision for the 20 dollar smart phone is still far more per month than the mobile phone; today rachel which catalogues all open learning so you dont need to be online isnt yet produced in mass scale that would bring down its costs
nonetheless anyone who is an alumni of rachel has extraordinary opoportuniteis- dachel is bow the best service provider for up to 50 stduents at a time wherever there is no internet from refugee camps to prison cells; the core stuents of rachels want to map back jobs skills traiining not get trapped in paper curriculum that made teh 20th centiry both so costly to be a scholar of and one that divirecd education from vocational apprenticeships
we suggest that and regional educational authority that doesnt start massively collaborating with RACHEL alumni is destined to be leading its youth back to the stone age

Entrepreneurial Revolution - an investigation started at The Economist in the 1970s as to whether intergenerational investments in future systems would empower the net generation to be exponentially sustainable. Surveys of the next 40 years asked questions of 2015-2025 such as:
Would the global financial system be designed to sustain or collapse local communities?
Would 2015-2025 be the under 30s most exciting and productive time to be alive as they linked in sustainability of the human race. Would the parts of the Western hemisphere that advanced the industrial revolution's empires demand that its politicians, professions and academics "happily get out of the way of the sustainability generation being led by the half of youth living within 3000 miles of Beijing"?
POP -Preferential Option Poor
Would every community's most trusted practitioners be educator, health servant and banker.
