What happens if combinations of these markets purposes spiral (exponentially) pro-youth or anti-youth? if 1 and 2 go right, youth can help change a borderless world And in Whole Truth's hyperconnected age of first net generation- how much time will human race have before irreversible consequences?
eg if 3 and 4 go wrong there can be no peace and no whole truth public servants
-2 ways to transform back to a worldwide value exchange SYSTEM youth's futures need:
openly celebrate thousands of microfranchises - 3E (effective, efficient, expandable/scalable) service solutions replicable between communities with matching life critical challenges -map a world of rules that empowers these solutions
theoretically lock up economists until every rule has been listed which needs revisiting and ???
2 open education as the most collaborative freedom the human race has ever interacted
1 Organisations with most vital responsibilities -how do we design network systems that are best for world and scale biggest
4 Mass media -can it ever again become happy and good for humanity
3 rule-governing professions- can they be pro-youth and exponentially sustainable iun aa bordereless world where compounding risks at boundaries is not the separation option historical professions assumed

Entrepreneurial Revolution (year 42 since originated by Norman Macrae: The Economist's pro-youth economist 1972) book of collaboration 7 wonders. web-linked page references coming sooon
The first 5 years of dialogues at The Economist on Entrepreneurial Revolution culminated in 25 Dec 1976 survey of Entrepreneurial Revolution.
1) The key debriefing: 20th century's largest oraganisations typologies are not capable of sustaining the net generation
2) What had started the quest of or Entrepreneurial Revolution was involvement from 1972 in early student experiments with digital networks - UK National Development Project Computer Assisted Learning. It was the post-industrial and hypothesis of Norman and Chris Macrae that internetworks would end cost of distance, and introduce million times more collaboration technology as the new innovation advantage. The next question: how to empower worldwide youth's most productive and heroic times - and more generally how to make membership of the first net generation the most enjoyable collaboration challenge the human race ever faces. see leaders we have been tracking at www.wholeplanet.tv
MOOCYUNUS & What are the other Connections Between Norman Macrae's Global Vilage Maps of the Net Generation and DR Muhammad Yunus
As youth, both were moved by personal observations of poverty and conflict across cultures and communities
For Norman , who had joined The Economist soon after its centenary as the journal founded to mediate an end to hunger. That was after he had spent his last days as a teenager in world war 2 navigating airplanes over modern-day Bangladesh and Myanmar, then 3 years off being mentored by Keynes at Cambridge.
ENTREPRENEURIAL REVOLUTIONARIES RETHINK ECONOMICS BOTTOM UP & TO COLLABORATE AROUND LITTLE SISTERDOM
At The Economist, Norman's quarter of a century prior to finding youth experimenting with digital networks had been a dismal one to report. After world war2, Economists at the bequest of politicians made all sorts of short-term fixes which cumulatively meant that 90% of their advice had switched sides from being pro-youth to anti-youth. This was diametrically opposite to the hippocratic oath Keynes demanded of his alumni. Furthermore, many so-called developed nations doubled how much of peoples earnings were spent by politicians with huge increases in spends on arms and the 2 mass media monopolies of the tv age were designed around commanding and controling people - altogether the dumbest media man had ever designed
Although Norman habitually collected core data on compound risks that other economists studying any particular contextm he always believed in scripting how to turn systems round to the most wonderful futures by involving leaders in just ahead of time debates of forthcoming gamechangers. Regarding the coming of the net generation and global interconnectivity Norman was well versed in how the logics of Orwell, Einstein and Von Neuman mapped risks this first era could spiral towards Big Brotherdom, but he branded Entreprenurial Revolution around those who wish to design the opposite futures quite literally of Little Sisterdom. Norman loved Muhammad Yunus bon mots - the entrepreneur is she who makes more jobs than she takes. He could idnetify how many of the assumptions 20th c macroeconomics had subliminally devealued everything that womens lives naturally invest more value multiplication around youth and community than male groupthink is are prone to do
HOSTING 85h birthday party at Royal Automobile Club (St James London) with dr yunus as guest of honor
After 9/11 Norman and Chris Macrae analysed how top-down NGOs and conditional AID had spun as big a problem as top-down everything else. We revisited the family archives on Gandhi (including Norman's fathers in law quarter of a century of work in Mumbai) and global reconciliation network travel to India led us to Bangladesh as a country which had designed remarkable bottom up little sister networks since its independence in 1972. When Norman read Yunus first social business book in 2007 - especially the first chapter on erroneous 20th C organisational design - he sponsored 2000 yunus book club and hosted his last public party around dr yunus. Ever since we have wished that millions of youth could have access to the real training on the hundreds of replicable microfranchises that Bangladesh has innovated across the spectrum of sustainability crises faced by youth born into poverty communities in extreme poverty
Some of the videos of yunus that norman macrae would most value youth interacting now are at http://youtube.com/yunuscenter and http://youtube.com/socialbusiness and http://youtube.com/globalgrameen . Some of the www.globalgrameen.com websites we theme around the joyful global village innovation flows of Norman and Yunus are
Some local correspondent networks we collate impacts (and youth action network opportunties) out are the Auld entrepreneurial allies: www.grameenscotland.com www.grameenfrance.com ; and www.grameenuk.com www.grameenamericas.com www.grameenasia.com and www.grameenafrica.com and www.grameengermany.com and www.grameenaustria.com and www.grameenbelgium.com and www.grameenspain.com as well as http://yunuscity.ning.com
we welcome your queries or comments on bottom-up heroes our collaboration maps haven't yet reached - after 42 years we still love o hear from anyone with a greatest collaboration roject the human race and worldwide youth don't yet know of

What you choose to see in each entrepreneurial revolution wonder will inform what you search for in each next wonder- that's why we have ordered them with 2 wonders where we feel in year 42 of looking we have found maps of the wonder going well for future of youth
next the 2 wonders which we feel are most invisible to most people and for which for reasons to be discussed the experts have become blinded from pro-youth maps
to 3 wonders which we categories as the world now knowing they are problems but which we may not agree to finding good enough pro-youth solutions unless we have searched through pro-youth maps of the first 4 wonders
Of course the process we have just described builds up ideas not just iteratively but recursively. Recursive information building is nigh on impossible for a linear printed book to achieve. So we have a companion site where you can see how people have started with the common information provided this book but helped to make much more diverse maps which is locally essential because every community's risk of losing sustainability depends on a combinatorially different list of priority factors.
THE PUBLICIST, THE ARCHITECT & THE SPONSOR OF OPEN SOCIETY
Yunus is the greatest publicist a youth nation has had in living memory; Bangladesh is doubly blessed in Sir Falze Abed at www.brac.net being the greatest open architect, and at pivotal times in both of these wonderful entrepreneurial revolutionaries progress , George Soros has been there to invest in the greatest bottom-up partnerships economists have ever helped host
