Norman Macrae, having survived teenage navigation of RAF planes bomber command world war 2 over modern-day myanmar/bangladesh, joined The Economist in 1949, and retired as the deputy editor of what he called "the world's favourite viewspaper" in 1988. During that time, he wrote extensively on the future of society and the impact of technology. Norman foresaw species sustainability as being determined by post-colonial and virtual mapmaking- 5G 4G 3G 2G 1G 0G if 60s tech could race to moon and Moore alumni promised 100 times more machine intel every decade TO 2025, let's end poverty mediating/educating a world of loving each others' children- so that wherever the next millennials girl is born she enjoys great chance to thrive.

Soon Norman was celebrating his wartime enemy's rising engineers and win-win sme supply chains across far east and very concerned that tod down constitutions english speaking nations led by political bureaucrats wasn't fit for entrepreneurial revolution-he co-opted a young romani prodi to translate Economist 1976 ER survey into multilingual formats

Amongst some of his more outlandish claims: that governments would not only reverse the nationalisation process and denationalise formerly private industries, but would also sell industries and services that had been state operated for so long that it seemed impossible that they could be run by private companies. A pioneer before the pioneers, Macrae imagined privatised and competing telecommunications and utility companies improving service levels and reducing prices.

When others saw arms build-ups as heralding World War III, Macrae predicted the fall of the Berlin Wall by the end of the 1980's.

questions on norman macrae's last articles, xmas 2008, welcome chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk -in fact remembrance parties started 2010 continue to this day round his extreme concern that subprime could distract from the decade that need to value changing education with a plurality of cultural curiosity not hitherto mediated.

Editors at The Economist discuss entrepreneurial revolution and why Norman Macrae supported Bangladeshi Microfinance 


With so many advances in human knowledge but not necessarily progress in lasting peace and goodwill to all.

 Lets explore a few timezones of millennium 2. Please note even in 2018 there is as yet no common agreement on how to measure the intangibles valuation of human relationship networks (or how to map local to global value chains in way that all costs and risks are transparent to those who will suffer most on the ground whenever professional subprime).

The one thing we should urgently be able to see if we look outside : global connectivity's rapid acceleration now reveals worldwide consequences (eg climate) which play out irreversibly within a generation or two, instead of several centuries.

Between 1748 and 1776, Scot Adam Smith lost the battle to return freedom to the way Britain was the first nation to be pivotal to the way that world trade was to be designed for nearly two and half centuries of Industrial Revolution.

In his 1748 book on moral sentiments - many call the first book on economics - adam explored a local community model. In the world of 1748, unless you lived by water most people didnt travel more than 15 miles from were they were born. Effectively everyone knew of each other. A trader might cheat some of the people some of the time but he would get found out, lose his local reputation. In that way it was communally in his interest to make every trade a win-win one that built trust through every value exchange he connected. Similarly financial services should be designed around multiplying such local goodwill
Adam Smith, Science & Human Nature by Professor Skinner
(To understand smith's ideology of free markets, you do need to read his won words. Many twentieth century academics have been sponsored to reinterpret what he said to match particular vested interests that some may feel bring terms such as freedom of speech and of markets into disrepute. Nonetheless as Keynes clarifies, increasing only economists design what future is possible for peoples and their place - savings have exponential consequences and as parents we take a collective "civilisation" responsibility to mediate how money flows wisely)

Adam's second book discussed a second loop to some extent conflicting with his community rising book- to what extent did a nation's size give it an advantage. Adam knew full well that Scotland had failed as a nation. It had been too small to lose half of its peoples savings in one overseas venture that most of them didnt know had been commissioned until it failed. The result the hostile takeover of Scotland by England (euphemism the United Kingdom). In fact London designed taxation policies so that by 1850 over half of scots could not sustain a livelihood in Scotland. Scots emigrated becoming a majority diaspora nation.

However Adam's main argument in his book was that although england's first move advantage with steam engines had added to its power to colonise it would be best to anticipate that America would become a larger market. Instead of dictating trade in the empire's interest why not negotiate free trade and freedom of America. As history shows, the Brits failed to do this. Henec the declaration of independence as USA fought to free itself of British control and declared every american's right to be a free and happy entrepreneur.

Colonialism, the control of world trade, seems to have emerged as an accident from 1500 as Europeans discovered they were not landlocked- ie there was a new continent to the west which became known as america, and that the far east east including india and china could be reached by sailing round Africa. Before this discovery, the main world trade market was the silk road which reached out  overland connecting Europe Asia all the way to China. Marco Polo was one of the must famous reporters of this chain of local markets. Taes facilitated win-wins across cultures and exchanges as they took up to 7 years to complete a journey from Europe to China. Most of the wealth and civilisation of the world of the first half of the second millennium depended on being linked in to this world trade route. And the end destinations such as venice in europe (surrounded with its own sub-trading routes across the med sea) and typically Hangzhou in China offered evidence of how win-win market trades developed places.

As ships and navies from 1500 started replacing the overland silk road, they tended to arm themselves so that when they reached ports they could dictate trades. Remember too that unless you were a captain, sailing round the world wasnt a popular job, violence was needed to pressgang sailors.  And this pattern spiralled it became colonisation - essnetially where an empire country controlled trade around its own interests. The consequence, whether deliberate or not, was that the colonies lost the ability to self-select trades that developed their peoples. In other words trade became win-lose where once across the silk road it mainly been win-win. And the infrastructure empires built was often only for their controlling needs not the native peoples mobility.

It is possible to argue that the 20th c world wars root causes was that the human race could not be sustained by two exponential structures

the pursuit by big nations to get bigger by extracting more carbon energy than their own country possessed either through colonisation or by going to war. notably a country like Germany which had been landlocked on its south and so not a participant in colonisation had to feed its desired to get bigger by taking the iron and coal from neighboring places needed for building ever more powerful machines.

And as we humans raced towards this dead end,  investing in 1000 times more human connectivity can be questioned as both a huge opportunity and a huge threat- what professional marketers used to SWOT.

Strength and weaknesses openly appraise where your history/culture of human endeavor has brought you to, Opportunities and Threats map back the future shocks of whether you compound hi-trust or low-trust exchanges going forward be these with other people or nature's environment.

The second half of the 20th century needed all the human foresight we could muster to be question against two unprecedented accelerators- investing in tech of communications and going green. Oddly one of these we have all raced into without questioning the media (digital isnt social just because west coast billionnaires claim it so), the other our governments in richest western nations have failed us on with stories that treat mother nature as little more than a game of devil take the hindmost. (Our point is : as far as we know nature controls the rules of which species becomes the next dodo, man doesnt make natures rules but would be wise to legislate ahead of their consequences)

What we therefore argue is that those nations that grew after world war 2  (with the exception of carbon rich territories) are those that  innovated produce that offered win-win trades harnessing connectivity- eg japan's quality systems applied to microelectronics and to engineering supertrans and starting up the east's superports by applying such innovations as containerisation and the advances in construction machines

These economies that have grown developing nations since world war 2 have been designed around innovating win-win trades and increasingly harnessing this to the 1000 times more now being spent on communications/connectivity technologies (2016 versus 1946). However successes have been stalled where they have got caught up in financial bubbles mainly caused by property speculation. 2008's extreme sub-prime bubbles and frauds took on both a new scale and a dimension which for the first tome showed exponential risks to countries savings could be more global than regional or local.

To world record job creatir, belt and roiad mapamkers and those who want to understand where economics is designed "inter-generationally" around trading transparency, trustflows ands winw-ns  friends  of valuing youth economies recommend the wporls of adam smith, JB Say, james wilson, wallter bagehot and the last chpater of keynes on the general theory of money.

The Economists Unacknowledged giant Norman Macrae penned his last leaders for co-publication dhaka and dc students and women4empowermnent networks of open learning dec 2008 -click souvenir brochure celebrated at The Economist boardroom remembrance party 2010

father unfunsihed project- how open learning between suster capitals could sustain millennails -helpus search for emergiing clues as human race rises to 4000 times more spend on global communication tech 2030 versus 1946

yazmi need to stay in top platforms of what is a trillion dollar market or 64 trillion dollars if like my family you see open learning as only orbit bank to millennial sustainability; in my concept yazmi doesnt need to be as big in turnover as say khan but far bigger in mutliplying goodwill and how millennials map way above zero sum direct trades- (ushahidi kenya is developing world leader but it does have some senior staff in dc -basically ushahidi is a gps twitter tool but  only scales projects through youth ihubs that are governed to be all the as happiest of youth tech wizardry) - my understanding is stefanos family is trying to be ethiopia portal into that and is looking for ethiopians biggest crop project that intel could help turn big data to small farmer advantage (which with one pop stars signing invest 10% in agriculture out of Ethiopia last years and performing with jim kim and apple Believe in yourself | D'Banj | TEDxWBG)- could have tested if dc and addis aba truly are sister cities (i realise its a poison chalice ethipains have as being biggest diaspora in the most anti-youth capial but..,maybe only yazmi is worldwide enough to bridge such duets)

happy to be corrected- to date all dc's feed future public-private partenerships leave youth out! in a magical way yazmi learning cant leave youth out of PPP

 trusted most by top 10 curricula designer - eg the kim/farmer/abed trio who knowhow tens of millions of girls could save healthcare- probably 10 hours of radio broadcasting aimed at sorting out which primary school teachers wanted their students to graduate into community health would be what needs to be taped first with farmer and kim 

i think my tokyo friend can navigate japans best

if we work on both side of mit and abdul latif saudi (my friends best ex japan partner) then that can be a second top 10

if we can get one of above 2 then it will be easy to explain yazmi to sir fazle abed especillay as brac is mit in dhaka and now the world largest cashless banking thanks to mit-legatum (dubai) support www.bkash.org

I am desperate to search s.korea now i realise that china is a separate entity- however a new zealander who started applying my dad's mad open elearning logics in 1984 sold 10 million books to chinese parents with surprising impacts in some localities as well as chinese superports like singapore - so maybe i can do better in a few weeks

as testimony to their fathers work the yokoi family are passioante about indonesia
back in 2013 china overtook usa as largest SME direct exporter with 40 billion dollars of direct exprts - its projected to grow 4 times by 2018 with usa less than dounble- but what could chnage the game is if makers markets and womens crafts have one export portal - if he understood his mothers work in indonesia this would be what obama spend post 2016 on

naila given your relations with gates foundation and turner foundation -which one or neither would ever collaborate with open learning- and if neither what is the startyegy og woen empowerment, un and open elarning since sustainability is a load of greenwash when its not action learnt

I can get into any mad avenue agency and confront them on greenwashing but I need partners to scare them out of image and back to reality -sopmething I have edited many journals and books on but now need to make sure The Economist is retrained on in time for 1ts 175th anniversary of emdiuating end poverty in 2018
