since 1972 alumni of The Economist's Entrepreneurial Revolution have become convinced that education entrepreneurs models benefit most from collaboration and that open education is the key to the door of the net generation being 10 times more (or if we mess it up in next decade less ) productive and exponentially sustainable

we hope our guided tour of these 11 helps you  help youth celebrate the above conclusion - of course we are delighted to hear of nominations of other education collaboration entrepreneurs -rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk but note our 11 are also chosen to complement each other

 

for example: Sal Khan's online academy demonstrates the most economic way to viralise any action learning that millions of youth could most gain from action networking, while

 

Sir Fazle Abed  has spent the last 43 years developing the ngo network that can claim all of these accolades:

biggest in terms of co-workers having served north of 100 million poorest mothers and children in Bangladesh and in the last decade or so replicating the model to many of the most seriously oppressed peoples on the planet

most collaborative

most educational driven in the action learning and job creating sense

the most value multiplying in terms of human livelihoods

consequently the curriculum of BRAC is worth more than any other curriculum that isnt yet available

BRAC is a curriculum replicator unlike any the real world 1 2 has ever seen. It now operates close to 50000 educational facilities -many no larger than a one room village school. Its metric has been to end generations of illiteracy among 15 million parents and 60 million children in rural Bangladesh. Paulo Freire was the first source Sir Fazle consulted on this part of BRAC's journey. Today BRAC also runs a city university one of whose unique features is every student spend an action learning term interning on a village innovation project

 

can you help norman macrae foundation call for a microeducationsummit before we lose the lifetime knowledge of these great educators (many way over 70) ?

LOVING (SOUTH ) AFRICA - No contest Mandela loved South Africa Most but here's a tale of 2 people who can still help millennials and south africans save the world and achieve #2030now 


15 years ago, Taddy Blecher got bored of being a chartered accountant in the south african office of Porter's Monitor and decided to start a free university for entrepreneurs. We would recommend those who want to reclaim learning freedoms online lok at the curriculum s.africa now uses. They have spread through 5 free university colleges and entrepreneurial literacy- blended with empowering interpersonal self-confidence using the Maharishi curriculum - is becoming prime time for 14 million children a year across the nation's schools- the goal is to make Joburg and Cape Town the world first twin capitals of change educators who co-create million jobs with youth

1 PEACE CURRICULUM Q&APC1 Was it a mistake for a book, whose main economic recommendation was that open education would be the net generation's greatest ever entrepreneurial freedom to start with valuing how to network peace?APC1.1 Timing is everything in mediating transformation in worldwide  system futures. Norman argued that 1984 was the greatest opportunity since world war 2 for citizens to vote against governments spending (through tax) a fifth of all their lives on arms.  How to linkin 2014-2015 as the other greatest youth opportunity to bid for worldwide peace can be informed  by reading Norman's last updates published here with Muhammad Yunus in 2008 APC1.2  None of Norman Macrae's obituary writers at The Economist or elsewhere understood Norman's timeline: spending his youth in parts of Europe ruled over by stalin or hitler, spending his last days as a teenager navigating raf planes over modern day Bangladesh and Myanmar, going up to Cambridge to be mentored by keynes that the number 1 system design job of economist is to end hunger and that youth should never let those in power divorce the future compounding disciplines of economics and peace APC1.3 Ironically all those readers and investors in the entrepreneurail revolution curriclum which Noramn spent 40 yeras editing The Economist from number 3 weekly uk journal to one of a kind global viewspaper understood how the search for peace was embedded in all his major surveys: as the only journalist to be at the founding of the EU, as the journalist who believed the deviation of the BBC fgrom world service was the greatest missed opportunity in mass media, as the journmalist who cheered on Japan as the most value multiplying nation of 1962 and asia pacific worldwide yoyth region liberating china as the turn of the millenniums greatest opportunity for youth to design colaborative millennium goals and action networks around APC1.4 Dismally few of the 21st C most famous economist undersrand the curiculum of economics that Keynes mentored his alumni including Norman on:1 the core job of the economists is to back whatever system designs she or he believes will help the human race unite to end poverty ( see the last Keynes last essay on persuasion); see also last 3 pages of Keynes general throory on why yoth's grearest enemy is a particular type of elderly academic economist who is most prone to pad his pension with funding from big governments on indsutry sectors that have lost that purspoe which has most relevance to producing future livelihoods.

About Curriculum of Global Grameen (Bangla for Village):

Keynes Final Essay in Persuasion  " Ending Poverty is core job of economics"; Schumacher Ending Poverty is a "global village" crisis of empowering network solutions through millions of villages; 1975 Macrae of The Economist starts up the massive collaboration curriculum Pacific Century  : to map why 7 billion beings' whole planet needs  (to celebrate raising 2 billion as yet underproductive people's but potentially rapidly developing livelihoods) - by 1984 human's greatest  opportunity is to co-create open education BUT man's compound risk is announced as "discrepancies in incomes and expectations of rich and poor nations . For the sake of youth economics as well as peace it recommended the world's biggest public broadcasters join early internet designers in ending this risk by searching for over 30000 microfranchises sustaining 3 billion community regenerating jobs; Macrae's last update of this curriculum 2008 Consider Bangladesh- download brochure used by The Economist at his remembrance parties.

Who's Free Edu Who

The world's 2 most collaborative microfranchising networks were founded out of Bangladesh in 1972 as BRAC, and 1976 as The Grameen Project led by Muhammad Yunus. 1978 Soros starts to innovate MIcroentrepreneurialBillanthropy in Cape Town and by 1996 he offers Dr Yunus and MIT technologists a social business loan so that 100000 village labs can test mobile connectivity; in 2008 he founds www.ineteconomics.org  to rethink economics from the ground up

KERRY GLASGOWIS HUMANITY'S LAST BEST CHANCE - Join search for Sustainaabilty's Curricula

Dear Robert - you kindly asked for a short email so that you could see if there is a CGTN anchor in east coast who might confidentially share views with my expectation of how only Asian young women cultural movements (parenting and community depth but amplified by transparent tech in life shaping markets eg health, food, nature..) can return sustainability to all of us
three of my father's main surveys in The Economist 1962-1977 explain imo where future history will take us (and so why younger half of world need friendship/sustainable adaptation with Chinese youth -both on mainland and diaspora)
 1962 consider japan approved by JF Kennedy: argued good news - 2 new economic models were emerging through japan korea south and taiwan relevant to all Asia Rising (nrxt to link the whole trading/supply chains of the far east coast down through hong kong and cross-seas at singapore)
1 rural keynsianism ie 100% productivity in village first of all food security- borlaug alumni ending starvation
2 supercity costal trade models which designed hi-tech borderless sme value chains- to build a 20 million person capital or an 8 million person superport you needed the same advances in engineering - partly why this second economic model was win-win for first time since engines begun Glasgow 1760 ; potentially able to leverage tech giant leaps 100 times ahead; the big opportunity von neumann had gifted us - knowhow action networking multiply value application unlike consuming up things
1976 entrepreneurial revolution -translated into italian by prodi - argued that future globalisation big politics big corporate would need to be triangularised by community scaled sme networks- this was both how innovation advancing human lot begins and also the only way to end poverty in the sense of 21st C being such that next girl born can thrive because every community taps in diversity/safety/ valuing child and health as conditions out of which intergenerational economic growth can spring
in 1977 fathers survey of china - argued that there was now great hope that china had found the system designs that would empower a billion people to escape from extreme poverty but ultimately education of the one child generation (its tech for human capabilities) would be pivotal ( parallel 1977 survey looked at the futures of half the world's people ie east of iran)
best chris macrae + 1 240 316 8157 washington DC
IN MORE DETAIL TECH HUMAN EXPONENTIALS LAST CHANCE DECADE? 
 - we are in midst of unprecedented exponential change (dad from 1960s called death of distance) the  tech legacy of von neumann (dad was his biographer due to luckily meeting him in his final years including neumann's scoping of brain science (ie ai and human i) research which he asked yale to continue in his last lecture series). Exponential risks of extinction track to  mainly western top-down errors at crossroads of tech  over last 60 years (as well as non transparent geonomic mapping of how to reconcile what mainly 10 white empires had monopoly done with machines 1760-1945 and embedded in finance - see eg keynes last chapter of general theory of money); so our 2020s destiny is conditioned by quite simple local time-stamped details but ones that have compounded so that root cause and consequence need exact opposite of academic silos- so I hope there are some simple mapping points we can agree sustainability and chinese anchors in particular are now urgently in the middle of
Both my father www.normanmacrae.net at the economist and I (eg co-authoring 1984 book 2025 report, retranslated to 1993 sweden's new vikings) have argued sustainability in early 21st c will depend mostly on how asians as 65% of humans advance and how von neumann (or moores law) 100 times more tech every decade from 1960s is valued by society and business.
My father (awarded Japan's Order of Rising Sun and one time scriptwriter for Prince Charles trips to Japan) had served as teen allied bomber command burma campaign - he therefore had google maps in his head 50 years ahead of most media people, and also believed the world needed peace (dad was only journalist at messina birth of EU ) ; from 1960 his Asian inclusion arguments were almost coincidental to Ezra Vogel who knew much more about Japan=China last 2000 years ( additionally  cultural consciousness of silk road's eastern dynamics not golden rule of Western Whites) and peter drucker's view of organisational systems
(none of the 10 people at the economist my father had mentored continued his work past 1993- 2 key friends died early; then the web turned against education-journalism when west coast ventures got taken over by advertising/commerce instead of permitting 2 webs - one hi-trust educational; the other blah blah. sell sell .sex sell. viral trivial and hate politicking)
although i had worked mainly in the far east eg with unilever because of family responsibilities I never got to china until i started bumping into chinese female graduates at un launch of sdgs in 2015- I got in 8 visits to beijing -guided by them around tsinghua, china centre of globalisation, a chinese elder Ying Lowrey who had worked on smes in usa for 25 years but was not jack ma's biographer in 2015 just as his fintech models (taobao not alibaba) were empowering villagers integration into supply chains; there was a fantastic global edutech conference dec 2016 in Tsinghua region (also 3 briefings by Romano Prodi to students) that I attended connected with  great womens education hero bangladesh's fazle abed;  Abed spent much of hs last decade hosting events with chinese and other asian ambassadors; unite university graduates around sdg projects the world needed in every community but which had first been massively demonstrated in asia - if you like a version of schwarzman scholars but inclusive of places linking all deepest sustainability goals challenges 
and i personally feel learnt a lot from 3 people broadcasting from cgtn you and the 2 ladies liu xin and  tian wei (they always seemed to do balanced interviews even in the middle of trump's hatred campaigns), through them I also became a fan of father and daughter Jin at AIIB ; i attended korea's annual general meet 2017 of aiib; it was fascinating watching bankers for 60 countries each coming up with excuses as to why they would not lead on infrastructure investments (even though the supercity economic model depends on that)
Being a diaspora scot and a mathematician borders (managers who maximise externalisation of risks) scare me; especially rise of nationalist ones ;   it is pretty clear historically that london trapped most of asia in colomisdation ; then bankrupted by world war 2 rushed to independence without the un or anyone helping redesign top-down systems ; this all crashed into bangladesh the first bottom up collaboration women lab ; ironically on health, food security, education bangladesh and chinese village women empowerment depended on sharing almost every village microfranchise between 1972 and 2000 especially on last mile health networking
in dads editing of 2025 from 1984 he had called for massive human awareness by 2001 of mans biggest risk being discrepancies in incomes and expectations of rich and poor nations; he suggested that eg public broadcast media could host a reality tv end poverty entrepreneur competition just as digital media was scaling to be as impactful as mass media
that didnt happen and pretty much every mess - reactions to 9/11, failure to do ai of epidemics as priority from 2005 instead of autonomous cars, failure to end long-term carbon investments, subprime has been rooted in the west not having either government nor big corporate systems necessary to collaboratively value Asian SDG innovations especially with 5g
I am not smart enough to understand how to thread all the politics now going on but in the event that any cgtn journalist wants to chat especially in dc where we could meet I do not see humans preventing extinction without maximising chinese youth (particularly womens dreams); due to covid we lost plans japan had to relaunch value of female athletes - so this and other ways japan and china and korea might have regained joint consciousness look as if they are being lost- in other words both cultural and education networks (not correctly valued by gdp news headlines) may still be our best chance at asian women empowerment saving us all from extinction but that needs off the record brainstorming as I have no idea what a cgtn journalist is free to cover now that trump has turned 75% of americans into seeing china as the enemy instead of looking at what asian policies of usa hurt humans (eg afghanistan is surely a human wrong caused mostly by usa); a; being a diaspora scot i have this naive idea that we need to celebrate happiness of all peoples an stop using media to spiral hatred across nations but I expect that isnt something an anchor can host generally but for example if an anchor really loves ending covid everywhere then at least in that market she needs to want to help united peoples, transparency of deep data etc
