  • In our next Book on World Record Job Creators: One reason why I recommend every student to look at the life's work of Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus is that he has proved that poverty is mainly caused by value chains that have been designed -consciously or subconsciously -to exclude livelihoods. In 1974, when he first took his students to study how to end million people famines, he found that Bangladesh's poorest mothers were excluded in every way from making a living. His solution was to invest in each circle of 60 poorest village mothers forming their own market exchange for such vital services as nutrition (carrots, chickens, rice husking), sanitation: pit latrines, ... he offered action learning and small loans to get started but most of all the group empowered by a barefoot banker designed an exchange so that there was neither glut nor scarcity for each of the services that hard working village mothers were able to co-produce

    Around The World of Global Social Value of Health and Preferential Option Poor

    Open letter to friends of catholic university millennials

    I wanted to update you on what I can see and would like to help do

    Co-creating some kind of town wide student and leadership "real space" for exploring  (Preferential Option Poor) cultural connections of faith and net generation world's most valued professions in ending poverty remains by number 1 deadline before and after september 23 and 24 (Pope Francis visits to Obama and Congress). As well as real space Naila particularly has made progress with the yazmi satellite with its potential pan-africa and pan-asia reach. Further if student union clubs of Preferential Option Poor replaced microcredit clubs as Ultra Poorest and womens empowerment main channel into student life across USA that would be no bad thing for millennials sustainability goals because Big Banks can hardly take over POP.

    Research of what ways to help paul farmer and jim kim (whose 30+ years of world class health service for poorest started in haiti and peru continues). The head of Haiti's new teaching hospital (rebuilt round farmer partners after the earthquake demolished the old one ) is speaking in DC 
    Thursday, April 16, 2015, from 6 to 8 pm at Busboys and Poets.

    This gathering is an opportunity to learn more about the work you make possible, ask questions, and engage with other supporters of PIH. 

    The reception will begin at 6 p.m., and drinks and appetizers will be served. Dr. Michelle Morse, PIH's deputy chief medical officer for Haiti, will give an update on PIH's ongoing efforts to strengthen Haiti's health system and share other stories from her work in Haiti.

    Busboys and Poets-14th and V, is located at 2021 14th Street NW, Washington, DC. 

    I dont know if that would be an opportunity to involve someone from the nursing faculty who you mentioned as one of the practice groups at CUA most likely to be interested in POP. Also Naila stages her annual 3000 person free healthcheck day in May so could be another reason for connecting before then. Further Tokyo University (and Toyota's development foundation) have asked Naila to keep an eye on their cohort of medical students who visit the East Coast on exchange in second half of the years- something that fits with trying to develop best for women empowerment relationships with health institutes across east coast. Naila is just back from 2 week of UN events which went very well and go to the next stage of activity at the same time as Pope Francis visit

    I am hoping that Taddy Blecher's summer visit to USA will spare some days in DC. He's the epicentre of the Mandela Extranet empowering million poorest 7th graders and their teachers to be job creators- it would really help me to understand a best reference criss-crossing eg Preferential Option Poor, Mandela, Gandhi. Maharishi -it seems to be to do with finding oneself in hope , optimism, love of community even in the most testing of work experiences or upbringings if I understand this paul farmer video correctly Dr. Paul Farmer on Hope. And of course if a whole organisation networks in this spirit its potential to serve can be gamechanging through every community it linkin

    By september Jim Kim will be 3 years in to his 5 year term at World Bank so POP really needs to get on an exponential curve if this town is ever going to be dominated by other than globalisation's least unsustainable top-down lobbies, and non-hopeful parties

    Rachel Ruto has become the first leader to test how her livelihood and entrepreneurial training of a  million of kenya's poorest women can be accelerated by the african-asian elearning satellite Yazmi led out of Silver Spring by Ethiopian Noah Samara. Last night it was announced that Obama's annual entrepreneur summit will land in Kenya in July. So all of this is positive. When I met Ruto she started off urgent searches on water- an area I was last actively researching when The Catholic Church in the Americas celebrated a Year of Water as a human right with Brazil a particular focal point. Our friend Michael Palin produced his BBC series on Brazil ahead of time with the hope that the Olympics will yet be an environmental celebration too - something Rome 2024 Olympics committee wants to put next 9 years into culturally celebrating with youth

    Unfortunately there have been delays in getting connected across the Americas -so while the youth entrepreneur summit meeting heads of state takes place next week in panama I can't find anything to directly contribute to that this time round. 

    If there is anything I could be doing or connecting, please say

    sincerely

    Energy

    For our kind of citizen its March Energy Madness every day of the rest of this planet!

    Here are some of the most exciting bottom up examinations of energy we have come across, please tell us others:

    Yunus http://gshakti.org /MIT-dlab/Germany's Nancy Wimmer

    Green Energy for a Billion Poor: How Grameen Shakti Created a Winning Model for Social Business by Nancy Wimmer (Feb 7, 2012)


    This can be compared with example presented by German micro-energy network Mobisol at the world bank live spring summit 2014 

    ..AJ Kalam, India's chief scientist and former president asked students to tear up non-sustainable curricula by 2020. Discuss some of these oppsoite way round values of renewable energy:
    clean prevents crisis of climate, poisoning food chains, need for ever more of planet to be used as dump sites of eg plastic..
    abundant
    local security- prevents a nation's (or sub-nation) people being taken hostage by another's nation's ownership of carbon or nuclear energy
    in case of solar proves to be scalable one at a time (unlike massive grid infrastructures )
    Trust Crisis of Public servants and professions- since world war 2 abetted by huge spends on tv advertising, the value chain of public servants has turned against 99% of the people in several ways which the system appears unable to free itself from. eg where governments have raced to spend money on the combination of nuclear arms and energy. It is arguable that if the world's politicians had directed a tenth of money spent on nuclear reearch to photosynthesis we'd be enjoying a wholly different planet. Always remember that nature's evolutionary designs are primarily bottom-up and open- where man designs too big systems around top-down and closed (highly boundarised)  rules. #2030now asks those who come of age in their 21st century to integrate humanity's greatest ever collaboration goals with the defining advantages of post-industrial entrepreneurial revolution :
    *humanly being more connected than separated
    *digital code being replicable anywhere with cost of distance
    *ways knowhow can multiply value in use opposite to consuming up things


    Clean energy collaboration entrepreneurs can be linked with nearly 15 years of annual prizes awarded for microenenergy out of London by the Sainsbury Foundation, Prince Charles, BBC Nature Correspondenst, Royal Geographic Society and others of the network http://ashden.org


    This can be linked to the passion for open education on sustainable energy led by the Turner Family out of Atlanta and seconded by Jimmy Carter Family whose presidency was the first to advance solar photovoltaic cells through the pioneering work of Neville Williams - see eg http://www.self.org 

    Recommended visits if you have time in the southern states:
    THEFT OF OUR CHILDRENS FUTURE
    Atlanta's late great carpet manufacturer Ray Anderson proved that if you were prepared to spend half a generation redesigning supply chains even carpet manufacturing could profitably aim for zero footprint- when ones suffers so much greenwashing CSR one is left to wonders what sectors couldn't emulate InterfaceSustainability if conscious leadership cared as much as youth of the net generation

    Yunus main corporate energy party ( The French company Schneider with its online energy university) has its main us research lab in Tennessee - the state of Al Gore and Inconvenient Truth. The founder of microcreditsummit is tee dyas to be found tutoring climate bottom-up lobbies at http://empoweringcitizens365.org

    Friends of Atalanta and Yunus are also linking in Japan's most urgent clean energy networks - TOMODACHI US-Japan Youth Exchange to rebuild the north of Japan, hit by massive earthquake and tsunami in 2011, led by the US Government and the US-Japan Council. I have been connected with Iren Hirano, President of the US-Japan Council who has a close relationship with the Consulate-General of Japan in Atlanta (please visit: http://www.atlanta.us.emb-japan.go.jp/janetikeda.html). experts supporting this Japanese Initiative include Gunter Pauli who has mapped 100 million blue green jobs

    health service

    while energy may be one of the top 2 opportunity and risk value chains, in many "developed countries" the costs of healthcare are arguably the greatest ponzi scheme elders have ever chained youth to- how do we liberate the great youth medic entrepreneurs is a question we urgently need to rehearse

    here's an extract from a conversation on this
    ANYONE know of Qualcomm Xprize?
    I ask because it seems to link youth to emedicine (a key love of yunus and of grameen intel) ;  the first in the yunus-edited series of youth's viral impossible postcards (attached) is on free nursing colleges

    qualcomm is largest employer in anna's san diego;  also this time last year 30 minute conversation I had with paul farmer at george soros university in budapest blew my mind!

    the competition teams look quite cool http://www.qualcommtricorderxprize.org/teams

    one of them was recognised by white house while being 15 year old marylander

    Jack Andraka is a Maryland high school student who at age 15 created a novel paper sensor that detects pancreatic, ovarian, and lung cancer in 5 minutes for as little as 3 cents. He conducted his research at Johns Hopkins University and is the winner of the Gordon E. Moore award at Intel International Science and Engineering Fair and the Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award and was Mrs. Obama’s guest at the 2013 State of the Union Address. He has spoken at TED Long Beach, over 11 TEDx events including House of Parliament, is the youngest speaker at the Royal Society of Medicine and has been featured on 60 Minutes, World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer, NPR Marketplace, Popular Science, BBC, and Al Jazeera, as well as, in award winning documentaries including “You Don’t know Jack” by Morgan Spurlock. Jack is currently working with a team of teens (Gen Z) on the Qualcomm Foundation Tricorder X Prize and speaks about open access, STEM education and universal Internet availability. He is also on the national junior wildwater kayaking team, and has won awards at multiple national and international math competitions.

    Young Professionals Versus Old Professionals  has become a critical dynamic in analysis every value chain that isnt sustainang youth - so I wonder for which practice areas we can have searched out young professional editorial teams before atlanta- back in 2006 when mostofa and I though that was what yunus wanted youth forums to do - Eva Vertes was willing to help.  Any ideas anyone?

    March Energy Madness

    From chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

    I do thank you. Friends and I are searching for say the top 10 green ideas that youth can most massively and productively replicate but I have no practice expertise other than (30 years of amateur journalism and statistical methods for) searching out who may be who

    GREEN10YOUTH NEED TO KNOW 
    I understand pretty well how the investment and diffusion models worked in bangladesh installing over 1 million solar units invested in by poorest off grid communities with particular thanks to nancy wimmer author of Green Energy for a Billion Poor: How Grameen Shakti Created a Winning Model for Social Business  complimented by the alternative views of paul polak that Jost recently convened at MIT D-lab with sponsorship from Lateef and their relationships across Toyota. I also understand that Yunus started his knowledge quest for solar with Neville Williams who championed solar back in days of carter's presidency

    2 I am travelling to tokyo at end of may and will be chatting to the other Toyota-evolved foundation that is leading green solutions to the nuclear/tsunami disaster region and is bringing in eg gunter pauli's knowhow to help

    3 Both Naila , Mostofa and I know the sainsbury foundation directors who run the green prize network of http://ashden.org whose judges include prince charles and bbc nature correspondents. Their next annual awards coincides which naila will join in celebrating coincides with my tokyo trip

    4 Naila  (the first female director of gramen phone back in 1966) is also in the middle of mobile telecoms empowerment womens networks and of course one of those apps is now microenergy

    5 Taddy out of south africa searches out the most marvellous nearly free job creating curricula - and has various passion partners - in the case of green , one of these would be Branson

    6 Sunita is the daugher of the founder of the world's largest school at Lucknow, and its world citizen sustainability goals have matched eg past president and chief scientist Kalam who famously demand that Indian millennials tear up all unsustainable curricula by 2020.  There are growing relationships between Lucknow, Bangladesh, South Africa and all of us thanks lrgesly to Mostofa continuous efforts

    7 Bernardo has developed the spanish spaking world's most used social business curriculum adopting pedagogic structures he learnt from mit and university of maryland. His native chile has some of the most active networkers of change plastic value chains. Back around 2000before Lula came to power I used to be associated with their embassy's campaign to host the most massive green conferences at the world's largest dam. Mostofa remains reasonable well connected with the British consuls youth climate superstar networkers

    8 alizee advises me what students and future educators think from china- and both anna's university in san diego and melissa's in maryland have huge programs connecting us students- china and other asian economies. The head of Brookings has fantastic connectiosn with green who's who across china but I havent succeeded yet in getting Brookings and Atlanta to find their first twin interest in youth

    9 Similarly friends and I havent yet found the best way to linkiin www.interfacesustainability.com -the loss of Ray Anderson as the only fortune 1000 ceo I wholly believed in green value chain transformation is huge but its just as well interface is atlanta-based

    10 similarly at a regional level we havent yet worked out a plan connecting tenessee's movements for green which naturally include al gore and may fortunately include the main us research lab of yunus main corporate partner in green "schneider;" i am also waiting to see if such as khan academy starts hosting peer to peer green competitions the way he has already done in health; there's also the open question as to whether part 2 of the world bank mooc on climate crisis could get down to the level of celebrating solutions youth and communities could be massively replicating

    we are trying to find a way to sustain a collaboration cluster by november 2015 when at least 4000 youth live and perhaps millions virtually will be looking in and what 's ready for replication as well as pitching their own solutions-there's a self-selection process to this in all possible stakeholders - the youth, the mentors, the educators, the investors ... the change economists and social movement connectors - at last 15 nobel laureates will be joining in - of which the carter and yunus family are extreme green advocates and ted turners family will be providing mediation support

    if there are some sub-programs of presidio that would fit with joining in please say- or question us- equally I expect other people have better questions or contextual remarks than these starters of mine

    The san-francisco region is a must partner if atlanta is to start a realy across twin youth future capitals - anna and jean-claude are early searchers of who in san francisco might want to join in but there's a lot more searching that needs to be done so that youth can connect east coast and west coast in the degree of system change that is needed if we are to help the millennial generation escape carbon chains in time

    many thanks

    volunteer for twinning massive youth jobs summits

    According to my father's first 10 years of research on the net generation's entrepreneurial revolution which also took The Economist to the state of being a global viewspaper- the net generations optimal jobs prospects needed green economics to become unstoppably popular in the 1990s and photosynthesis research needed to replace the government obessession with nuclear. So we are way behind the curve and as they say in the east, public leaders cant change until the peoples do.

    Food security youth projects merit a parallel top 10 according to way youth have voted in 5 state-wide competitions of which Fiona's in New Hampshire is most easily accessible- this also trialled virtual youth entrepreneur competitions showing that this mode can be key to linkingin worldwide judges, mentors and social business investors

    in 3 weeks I travel to tokyo where my father started eastern hemisphere entrepreneur youth debates in 1962 which continued as his life's work on net generation's jobs at The Economist and his last articles published with Muhammad Yunus; in japan the emperor rated father as number 1 international pro-youth economics journalist as signified by award of rising sun with gold bars

    main question to you is what top 5 or 10 green networks knowhow in addition to yours and yunus do you feel would be most valuable to linkin to 20000 youth atlanta nov 2015? (given that main hosts yunus, ted turner family and jimmy carter are burning hot about clean energy's value chain)

    second question- given major schneider research facility is in tennessee (the home state of al gore and inconvenient truth) is there any knowhow flow between atlanta and tennessee we need to be stimulating?

    my main connection in tokyo is now responsible for funneling 60 years of toyota's worldwide development reearch ; in addition he is the gateway to youth solutions to the tsunami-nuclear region where Gunter Pauli of hundred million jobs of blue=green economy is advising; thirdly he is connecting every world youth summit he can search out- these include deep connections in cape town

    thanks chris macrae washington dc 301 881 1655 skype chrismacraedc

    ps in my have a dream world - a prototype premier league of youth energy open education networks would be agreed by all here mailed in such a form that i could drop it on the desk of the ceo of brookings whose current main question is will china get clean energy in time to sustain worldwide youth? 
    I have no practical expertise/investment in energy so I have no conflicting agency/fund issues other than wishing to help youth explore this in every exponentially rising value multiplying way NOW

    February Financial Flotsam

    Big Banking Traps Majority of Us Peoples in Value Chains - This recent compilation of links is worth clicking through- what others books would you review in unison http://newsle.com/article/0/145185854/

    A Multidisciplinary Review. Malcolm S. Salter (HBS):Annals of Crony Capitalism:
    ?/10 Revisiting the AIG Bailout. 


    5/10  This controversial bailout is to be understood as result of impromptu and highly improvised risk management by government officials who had no clear regulatory authority over failing investment banks and insurance companies — like Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers, and AIG — and who were conditioned by their professional training and current responsibilities to focus on the worst-case scenarios following the collapse of large financial institutions holding fast-depreciating real estate assets. Operating under severe time constraints and existential anxiety, mistakes and missteps were made by the New York Fed in its unfamiliar role as the chief restructuring officer of AIG.

     Minimizing a “Key Cause” of the 2008 Financial Crisis: Governance Failure. L. Randall Wray (Missouri): ?/10 Impossible to tell from extract whether this is worth reading- yes of course a problem of our times ins we dont have any professional capabilities for auditing networks whise dynamics are wholly different from eparability assumptions old professions still use to rule over things

    Tom Streithorst on a brief glossary of financial cataclysm. Financialization depends on astandardized product — what happens when it’s applied to people? 
    10/10 while some of this is basic- note the 21st c citizzen can expect his bank to fleece him if he doesnt understand (at level of taking action) just one of these ideas

    The toughest cop on Wall Street you've never heard of: David Dayen on how Benjamin Lawsky's making big banks pay

    How mega-banks destroyed America: Josh Eidelson interviews former Goldman Sachs managing director Nomi Prins, author of All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances That Drive American Power
    6/10 not an interview that offers full solutions but clarifies how much of the mess interpersonal relationship mess of corridors of big banking  is no better than 2008

    Simon Johnson on the end of our financial illusions. Andre Douglas Pond Cummings reviews Lawless Capitalism: The Subprime Crisis and the Case for an Economic Rule of Law by Steven Ramirez. If our food system was regulated the same way our financial system is we would have food poisoning all the time.
