Boston & Bangladesh #1 Women Empowered Edunomics & AI & Netherlands
|world's biggest questions?||With EconomistLearning.com :|
I wondered if you could give me some advice on whom and how to contact someone like Malloch Brown or Greg Chen or Shameran Abed or anyone concerned with Fazle Abed's biggest idea connecting his life's work and higher education
Soon after my father Norman Macrae died in 2010 the Japan Ambassador to Bangladesh invited me to 2 brainstorming dinners with Fazle Abed. There he told us of his legacy intent to connect brac university with 100 graduate-female scholars networks of sustainability goals generation . I went to Bangladesh 15 times to help file notes blogged at http://www.abedmooc.com
For many reasons - from covid to how Abed's illness accelerated before he could fully brief the new vice chancellor he had chosen, to barriers raised across Asia by Trump etc - the University collaboration idea (and other tech partnerships like that with alipay) are off path even as they remain the most scalable chance for under 35s to leap ahead and support Guterres Summit Future 2023.
On the tech side I am now helping coordinate research for an AI Hall of SDG fame with Von Neumann's family - my dad became his first biographer and this month 30 years later a new Neumann bio is out. I have footnoted a bit more context on how father was The Economist's 3ed half century sub-editor of end Asian poverty (that being what founder and Adam Smith alumni James Wilson started 1843-60)

We can now see that the 5 compasses needed to respond to schumacher's question how to end poverty of a million villages correspond to the 5 core public service markets that a transparent analysis of eSG would value expoentially:
S2 access to human energy - ie security of food, water. clean air
S3 access to last mile health especially basics for infants, children and mothers
S4 With over 60% of humans working informally: Access to livelihood education (community experiential and small enterprise learning) so that villages enjoyed full employment through positive cash flow models
S5 Building (servant leadership) 100000 person lives matter community . Human rights most exciting entrepreneirial revolution has shown that even without tech a dedicated public servant leader (eg adopting franciscan paulo freire values) supporting the world's most entrepreneurial mothers can empower 100,000 person communities where all lives matter. more at abedmooc.com

|You could call my father Norman (teachforsdgs.com, 1 2 4 The Forest Gump of entrepreneurship). He tried to value the borderless knowhow millennials would most urgently need to action as the worldwide sustainability generation. By 1976 his Economist surveys of Entrepreneurial Revolution were advocating that places' services and system maps needed to prep opportunities for 21st c youth to make the best of 2 experiential learning worlds:|
1 world class digital networks
2 lives matter last mile community network where children and families develop
Father had been blessed with multiple good fortunes to get to 1976 from his birth in a British Embassy in Russia's Konisberg of 1923
he had survived being home schooled in british embassies in some of Europe's moat hateful place notably Stalin's Moscow and places where Jews were trying to escape from Hitler
he had survived spending his last days as a teenager as navigator allied bomber command burma campaign
in the first 6 years after world war 2 he was mentored by 3 people whose innovations views most mattered to world class joirnalism: john von neumann, sir geoffrey crowther , maynard keynes (NCK).
**From von neumann dad was given the biggest scoop of worldwide journalism. Ask leaders what will they be doing with 100 time smore tech per decade 1950s to 2020s; that a million times "moore" if they are planning 30 years (half the world's population ahead)
**Geoffrey Crowther had edited The Economist's centenary autobiography in 1943. Because of The Economist's' collegiate instead of individualistic viewpoint, Crowther's work isnt simple to reference academically. The 3 sources I use are the common sense of editorials in The Economist during his editorship, the 1943 autobiography, a published series of lectures he gave at claremont. Additionally Crowther like all those living up The Economist's 1843 founding would start every economist alumni off by studying Adam Smith (which fortunately for Norman had been the only books he had with him in Burma).
**Keynes ; in the final chapter of the general theory of money , interest and employment keynes asks a most valuable question that he was concerned his final graduate classes honored as alumni of his knowhow- practically speaking next generations opportunities and threats are exponentially locked in by a handful of people- do you see wo these people are and how is transparency/human sustainability brought to the consequences of their decision-,making
Dads wartime experiences put google maps in his head a generation ahead of most other intellectuals and place leaders. He was deeply concerned how world war 2's root cause had become the G8 empires (7 white representing about one sixth of the human race's diversity though most of earth north of the tropics. To father permission to sign one annual survey a year from 1962 was a great joy -this came after 15 years of writing about 1000 anonymous editorials published weekly (including only journalist at birth of european union as well as connector of interdependence mindsets which included President Kennedy as well as the 3 aforementioned wizards). Father's chose as his first survey how the rise of japan offered a model around which the two thirds of humans who are Asians could rise- in 1962 the model was already multiplying win-win trades for people surrounded by east asia shipping lanes - japan s korea taiwan hk and singapore (with notable thanks to 1962 of the peace umbrella and engineering foci that usa had actionable freed these peoples to design).

I try my best to live up to my father's (The Economist Norman Macrae 1 2) great good fortunes -if you think I am failing - I am here to learn firstname.lastname@example.org (Washington DC by way of Glasgow & other livesmatter cities)
contents the most exciting market purposes I ever see or hope to see (nb if something you buy , make or serve matters to you (is life changing) its very important you debate what is the purpose of this market that matters for advancing the human lot - especially as in the 2020s parents and children need to unite in helping youth be the sustainability (not the extinction) generation- those are the 2 opposite outcomes- it is the 2020s more than any time that will decide our species future
2 agricultural matkets for human development are most clearly learnt from bangladesh- fazle abed's 50 years of designing vilage microfranchise: (more coming)
NB there are huge markets - fashions, sports stars sports stars and there are huge parallels in communities vibrant with arts , local theatre, local fashion shows and sons - www.wingforhope.com in new york shows one way a city's artists can support each other and every community - the top stars fund raise with high soc; the off broadway stars get paid to build out festivals in every community across the city; the poorest hospitals and community centers get served and the children get a chance to perform; its a model any city6 with a large live performance market can follow
an example at the scale of a university town is the cambridge arts theatre (legacy of keynes) whose students footlights/dramatists became many of the bbc comedians and world tourist - be this travel guides, nature guides ...
priority 1 food security to end starvation (UN goal 2) or infant disease due to lack of vitamins (part of un goal 3)
priority 2 village to city trade - both climate adaptation (eg forestry) and arts eg silks and fashion designs
then after 25 years of all villager networking being face to face, abed connected early tech partners (solar and mobile) in ways that made sure the 14 most important agricultural value chains of bangladesh were designed to include the poorest - in other words a trust representing poorest village women is market leader in poultry in dairy and so on (this on a huge scale but not different in principle to way paul newman used his brand to design mar4kets round various recipes - a profitmaking social business whose profits eith invest in community project or extending the consumer offer) ok some actors like paul newman can build their fame over 50 years but for sporting superstars you probably have much less time and anyway why would older people not want markets their children can design their generation progress for humanity around
acknowledge : my father was lucky:
to survive world war2 - sent as a teen to navigate allied bomber command in burma campaign (now called myanmar)- you could say a generation ahead dad had google maps in his head of the east end of the british empire- go north west of mynmar across china toward his 1944 enemy japan; look east across bay of bengal and see the whole of the subcontinent of india; fly south down the asean peninsular to singapore , or south east asia; almost all of this region (where half the world lived) had not been developed by machines due to the way mainly british empire had been rolled out of london
war had interrupted his good fortune to go to cambridge where he was lucky to be in last class tutored by keynes; keynes requested his last class to take hippocratic oath - to try to design systems that ended poverty -in view of dads mapping experience that would be a lot of work across eurasia;
dad was lucky to get a temporary job at the economist from 1948 which became his lifelong career;; the economist sent him for a years internship in new york where he met Von Neumann in princeton- and was given probably the greatest scoop of any journalist (dad called entrepreneurial revolution); ask leaders (and anyone developing brains - their own or teachers responsible for everyone's development) what they will do with 100 times more tech every decade- please note my father saw extreme challenges in such a question - its scale wasn't optional whole communities of 100,000 people would need to adapt; like any diaspora scot dad was aware that the 180 years of change stimu8lated by first 2 types of engine originat5ed in glasgow 1760 had not ended well (2 world wars)
it is within these guidelines that my work ((some kind reviewers say as one of the most innovative designers of brand purpose) seeks to understand can markets be mediated to solve the sustainability development goals in time for millennials to be the first sdg generation - and if they can't what are we all going to do as you read this from early 2022 onwards?
we believe the world's most sporty, beautiful, artistic young women can take back the purspose of all youth created markets in following way
start with non-white female golds at either olympics who want to create memorabilia and their own coins to represent vissions women want 21st c communities to sustain
we suggest 51% OF THEIR PUBLIC MARKET IS PUT IN LONG TERM TRUST
20% OF COINS ARE SOLD FOR 20 BILLION$
IF SAY 9 OLYMPIAN Golds STARTED UP WOMENSVERSE - THEY COULD EACH TAKE 1% (THEIR OWN COIN INITIAL WORTH 1 BILLION - A HUNICORN)
LEAVING 20% FOR COMMONS PROJECTS- IDEAS HERE :
START WITH 2 billion invested in legacy project of ABED WHO EM[POWERED A BILLION women to end poverty - unite 100 universities graduates who want to scale common sdg solutions-in particular challenge the bbc to do what it should have dfone long a go - help with designing a neraly free nursing college curricula - the tv part is operations which may need tv- nearly free colleges are designed around the opposite of trapping youth in debt; its unclear why an society should want a nurse to get in debt any more than transforming a soldier; but anyhow degrees can be stacked; shills can be segmented - for example if we live in an age of serving last mile mass vaccination and testing the nursing skills needed for that can probably be trained in a month as long as there are back up apps so patients can report any side effect symptoms direct to doctors

2020s paradox: to have such extraordinary technology advances (see 100 rimes more tec perd decade from 1950s as legacy of Neumann's alumni) and to be so close to extinction is ultimately an intergenerational failing. Countries like USA where college debt is now the largest personal debt cannot lead where the younger half of the world need to boldly go without confronting this. Let's hope a city like Boston offers a national bencmark. Meanwhile as this UNESO report showa the rest of the world cannot wait. Here are 4 worldwide education summits that have emerged- it is time to interconnect their innovations.
WISE Qatar launched the Nobels of education thanks to first lady Sheikha Moza; it has blended its national conference center with a women empowered education campus including buildings representing different partnerships such as with Carnegie Melon or with Brookings or for much of the decade as the UN's designate hub partnership on refugee education. By maling its first laureat Dazle Abed it offered space for those who have discovered the disastrous fallacy of those who claimed women empowerment miracles across rural villages of the Asian continent were gravirared by banking mindsets. From 1997 onwards, the first annual micrpcreditsummit out of Washington DC was a misbranding - Bangladesh ended poverty through village women's livelihood decelpment gracitated by education- see abedmooc.com
The lainnch of the SDGs in 2015 saw Wise change from annual Qatar summit to sandwiching one year's road tour with one years Qatar summit. Fortuately the first years roadtour inccluded Africa, China and Spain. Effectively the student year 2016-2017 provided a leap forward that even the geatest sustainability luddites 9eg Mr Teump's world) could not extinguish. Asian technologists woke up and the Yidan prize was born. Hubbed out of Hong Kong but quicly ensuring partnership platfoprms with the likes of Stanford, both Cambridges, Oxford. Within its first 4 years Yidan had chosen to linkin the biggest community-led education revolutions on the continents of Latin America, Africa, India as well as Bangladesh while blending this with tech system desgners out of the world's most developed nation. ..
Varkey had taken a different approach as the only education summit founder who has made his forune out of schools. It was time to give back with the million dollar teacher world. This eas clevely designed sp that each years top 100 cohort were discussed as much for all their ideas as the laureate. Whilst a million dollars sonds a lot it cannot change a national system; knowing that each yeay you can look at vaekey to see obe hubdred of the most innovative and loving teachers is a miracle albeit on the less resourced scales that Qarar's first lady oe rhe Chinese Diaspoara's rech and education can change the world.
And where might you ask are the UN's contributions to education. This is complex for several reasons. The Un and its youth branches are geographically complex- historically with French inputs demanding to lead pedagogies in ways that cant breakthrough top-down bureaucracy. Refugee and playschool education has nonetheless risen as a global movement in spite of this To be fair the french did not lead the crisis in college education caused by the US debt model. And as for k-12 as 30 countries started briefing Gordon Browns education commissions from 2015 broken communities and beonen education sysatems are part of he same last mile service breakdown endemic to all of the primary sdgs failing to have as yet matched the primses all nations made to their younger half on sdgs and on climate. So we can now srudt UNESCE december 2021 admission that instead of 6 years od sdg 4 progress- education worldwide is too broken to dix without total transformation. see alse rewired 2021 and 40 national resimonies that brown has collected by starting up education commions with 2 different breathing spaces : western see ed un hq edy commission summit BY 2016; asian see education commission inaugural summits Korea 20, 21. It turns out that the Asian Development bank is also in its 10th year of hosring skills summits even though these were not ,apped by those who confined their viwpoints to UN organsation
. The second most vital world conference stage by Qatar is the first lady's WISH summit on Health..
In november 2021 the oxford union voted 2 to 1 against the motion that americans will lead the world back to sustainability- this upset the former head of the wilson woodrow center (supposedly america's leading non-partisan thinktank) but actually one that devalues youth futures like there is no tomorrow- washington dc has become the capital of hating young peoples of any skin color; all it represents is the biggest and least sustainable interests and place's people could be mediated by. At about the same time, america's ;argest funds manager dalio published a book - nobody (least of all all the people of america whos elives matter) should want america to lead on every idea cpable of sustaining humans - chnaging world order
what's going on?
this is not intended to be a criticism of the peoples of america, but as for their supreme policy makers they have sadly misunderstood both keynes and adam smith
as keynes and smoth both knew: only humnas most positive emorions (passed through smart parents and community's real skilseducators) eg love can save us at times of world change while hate will destroy us- and as anyone who ever chatted to von njeumann will know we started an era of living with 1000 times more etch chnage every decade at around the same time that the united nations was born and thanls yo the neumanns 12 post war years of the greatest mathematicians who ever lived in the same generation: into the start of age of human and artificial intel
the most important logic keynes advanced : increasing only a handful of economist will rule the world (the few whose acadmic scribblings become laws that monopolise peoples lives; the most important idea of smith - any teacher who a skill communities need to be sustainable can help children be the future
when my father died, a japanese a,bassador invited me to attend 2 brainstoming sessions with the asian who had helped more poorest village women create jobs and develop communities than anyone ever had- he had learnt from his biggest mistake - using his life saving to build homes for 100000 people - no sooner than the homes were built than he found women and chidren dying in the village pathways of starvation and dehydration; he set about designing life critical village business (food to end starvation, last mile health services to end infant and mothers deaths) he didnt need economists he need people prepared to be village trainers
I travelled 16 times from washington dc region (with young jouramlust) to try to make notes from tyhe man who believed 1 billion vilage mothers could learn and then train sustainability's futures
over his 50 years as servant leader (1970-2019) 6 sorts of education focus came togther to create 90% of his countries livelihoods:
===== when fazle abed began serrant learedrship ofd bangladesh rural advancement 90% og bangladeshi's lived in villages with no access to elecrticity and so no telephones or othgr communications engineering- all edication needed to be done person to person (or once enough literacy had been gained) through printing educationa materials group learners could apply; for 25 years every partner of developing villages created value when they designed such human networking /action learning resources; then from 1996 a second networking game came to villages how to use solar and mobile phones; when abed died 3/10 children were being bon in cities not villages -his legacy is to prepare for 2050 when half of bangladesh will live in cities
during the evolution of bangladesh as 8th most populous and at birth poorest nation -abed asked anyone who helped teach to be focused on what they taught's consequences were on village mothers SDgoal 1 ending poverty; in his final years he asked that his alumni start celebrating three lessons in one : what can you teach that needs poverty, expands the middle class and goes green
while only a handful of economists could conceivably impact bangladesh's developing nation, as reacher every mother can as can everyone serving the community in ways youth can apprentice livelihoods (microfranchise businesses)
sustainability begins and ends in every community (global village)

While the half of the world under 30 probably has less than 10% of financial power, they should buy chips companies- up 26% now over half a trillion dollars as a market
as intel used to brand it is the chip inside that has delivered 100 times more economic/analytic advantage per decade since 1965 (alumni of moore/silicon valley) committed to delivering such innovation
the catch 22 : very few of us 8 billion users of apps know whose chip is inside - yet no tech company (probably 90% of the top 100 global corporates ) would exist without chips (vital to mmass consumers and much of IOT)
so who produces chips - intel the birth of the brand silicon valley compudning 100 time "moore" since 1965 ; strangely due to crazy politicians (banning us nvidia's purchase) the uk's arm remains for sale even as japan's softbank parlays it; 3 years ago in a covid free world softbank could have supported youths futures unlike any other corporation and been at the epicentre of all the happiest that japan has given to world trade win-wins since 1962..
taiwan last claim to independence is nothing to do with american politicians and everything to do with its cgi[p capability
there is something very strange about chip production - koreans seem to be better at its extreme innovation than eg china, japan, germany usa or anywhere - quite why depends on deep cultural understandings - what a pity that korea and japan havent yet agreed to completely invest in each other (north korea not withstanding no where on the contient of asia has contributed so much hard working young people per head than korea south -probably the most u8ndervaklued millennials in the mobile world and humanising AI

jerry yang -amazing what yang keeps youth connecting even while curveballs in youth connecting are thrown by so many
Stanford alumnus Jerry Yang, founding partner of AME Cloud Ventures and co-founder of Yahoo!, has been elected chair of the Stanford University Board of Trustees, succeeding Jeff Raikes.\
BY KATE CHESLEY Jerry Yang, a Stanford graduate who co-founded the search engine and web services provider Yahoo! and is currently the founding partner of the venture fund AME Cloud Ventures, has been elected chair of the Stanford University Board of Trustees. His two-year term begins July 1, 2021. “I’m humbled and honored to serve my fellow trustees, and to work with Stanford’s exceptional leadership and faculty members,” Yang said. “Stanford has the opportunity to execute on its Long-Range Vision, to be part of the solution that faces our communities, nation and globe.
”Yang, who earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering in 1990 from Stanford, succeeds Jeff Raikes, co-founder of the Raikes Foundation and former chief executive of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Raikes has served as chair since 2017. He will remain on the board of trustees after his term as chair concludes. Raikes praised Yang as being “uniquely positioned to help lead Stanford as it emerges from these challenging times and continues pursuing its mission of being a purposeful university. His experience in founding and leading several Silicon Valley companies, his knowledge of and commitment to Stanford and his insightful understanding of the issues facing higher education make him an exceptional choice as chair of the board of trustees.” He added, “Jerry and his wife, Akiko, have made inspiring contributions to Stanford that have been as visionary as they are generous. Their interests and areas of expertise are wide-ranging, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the university itself.
