Associates of Norman Macrae Foundation

chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk -over 40 years since our first futures book on the net, these words of dr yunus best hit the spot of future I'd like my daughter to see- how about you?

We Create What We Want.
We wanted to go to the moon, so we went there. 
We achieve what we want to achieve. 
We accept that poverty is part of human destiny. It’s not!
We believe we can create a poverty-free world. 
We need to invent ways to change our perspective.
We can reconfigure our world if we can reconfigure our mindset. . 
Social business will be a new kind of business, making a difference in the world.
Human beings are a wonderful creation embodied with limitless human qualities and capabilities. 
Entrepreneurs are not one-dimensional human beings, dedicated to maximizing profit. 
They are multi-dimensional: political, emotional, social, spiritual, environmental.
The desire to do great things for the world can be a powerful driving force
Young people dream about creating a perfect world of their own.
Social business will give them a challenge to make a difference by using their creative talent. 
Let us join hands to unleash our energy and creativity. 
Collectively, we can create a poverty-free world.”

Legatum change the world conference has been announced for 10 May 
MIT remains the most revolutionary space youth can study in usa- it celebrates open education; it houses the father of the web tim berners lee; a square mile walk from kendall metro is the most futuristic imagination tour I know of in the west (though I would love to join in celebrating any square mile tour you recommend for changing the world) 

and through Legatum it hosts annual conferences by the digital wizards who first brought mobile telecoms to the world poorest village mothers and their communities with the greatest sustainability crises; I guess but I dont know that the most futuristic square mile tour in the middle east is located in Dubai (the twin capital of Legatum with Boston)

3 main action research compasses:

  • pro-youth economics at journal of social business;

click pic to download journal of pro-youth economics

.

 

  • surveys of who's a meta-hub for 50 of youth's most exciting project netwiorks;
  • designing multi-win models and governance structures around this productivity clue Norman found when writing biography of von neumann commissioned by sloan foundation

: Johnny grabbed other people's ideas, then by his clarity leapt five blocks ahead of them. and helped put them into practical effect. We think this is the social action that smart people exist to mediate - especially when you joyfully adopt Johnny's belief that computers will allow research teams to tackle one hundred times as many projects 100 times more quickly.

Esther Duflo and Abhijit Banerjee lead the mit poverty lab aka J-Pal Abdul Latifee Jamel Poverty Action Lab- it appears to host the annual yunus prize competition which is cobbected with the year long entrepreneur prize competitions hosted out of MIT but encouraging boston-wide participation. 

Duflo is resp[ected by many in Paris the world's leading social business capital- her book is POOR ECONOMICS

know that the 4 most officially recognised connectors of grameen and yunsu in usa are:

vidar

monica yunus

sam daley harris

alex counts

 

know that the greatest practice and resoirces partners in usa are:

Grameen Intel

Whole Planet Foundation

in Americas through Vidar - Carlos Slim Mexico; Brazil povert program first assembed by Bula

 

the yunus pop group the green children aloind with france formed the forst suvcessful global social business partnership

 

yunus only official univesristy partner is cal state chanels isles but their community practice projects do not connec t with smba , new economics curricula or many of the 50 most exciting projects- this means that working out where is the first usa yunus-partner univetristy that can linkin with likes of HEC, Kyushu, Sinagpoare National UNi is still an unasnwered question
