keynes - you can design anything with economics and media if enough people want it
as my daughter is 15 i want the next quarer of a century to be the most productive time to be alive anywhere on earth - and since 1984 my friends and family have assumed that will involve co-creating 3 billion jobs with the million times more collaboration technology that the first net generation can now enjoy
so my friends' only challenge isnt the want its who is the we?
10 years of interviews since 9/11 have convinced me that the we is worldwide youth = although most political systems are dreadfully biassed against youth just count the numbers - most media is driven by youth and there is no reason why with the huge amounts universities charge students that students shouldnt tell univesities they want their help in 3 billion jobs creation
so we partner in a jobs comptition format in which students compete with ideas and the prizes are that univesities commit resources to help entreprenurially franchise solutions as openly as they are desperately needed by commubities around the world
we hope to introduce similar economic games all through educational systems but for now if you are a university student or responsible for students and agree with our want of 3 billion jobs please join in at http://jobscompetitions.ning.com or phone pur washington dc hotline 301 881 1655 or email email@example.com
