History (if humans exist in century 22) will note that C21 started up in a terrible linguistic mess as regards how leadership and system transparency of business and society and professions need to value peoplepower. In particular, the word entrepreneur had become a political punching bag. Its meanings had been popularised for 40 years 1950-1989  in The Economist by my father Norman Macrae with continuity going back the scottish founder of The Economist in 1843 and the origin of hi-trust economics Adam Smith.
Globalisation's War & Peace of Entrepreneur as Piggy-in-Middle of Macro & Micro Economics
However by 2001 over 90% of Americans including 3rd grade social studies books defined Entrepreneur as man who makes money by taking risks or some 1-dimensional pursuit of profit extraction. As a counter-tide, a bizarre term "social entrepreneur" had been coined to represent saintly local projects but ones 90% of whose founders felt no need to develop sustainable business modelling around. Hi-Trust entrepreneurs have always been concerned to earn positive cashflow so that nothing gets the way in investing in ever deeper purpose benefitting all who are communally connected to the compound consequences that spin expoentially up developing better futures for and by all in an integrated way. Especially as any system that isnt goverened around entrepreneurial win-win-win for all spirals vicious lose-lose-loses, and potentially societal destruction.

LSE Talk

1 MINDSETS : THIS GENERATION’S BIGGEST RISK

I will not go into the details of Grameen bank. We started back in 1976. The only thing I would like to mention is I was not a banker, no training in banking of any kind, ..I was teaching in Chittagong University, teaching economics, but I was gradually drawn into it –without any kind of background in lending money or banking – that was the circumstances which pushed me into it, I never designed it that way, people think about their future in terms of what they would be – as a child we do that we want to become a pilot or a filmstar or a firefighter but not even as a child  did I think I would be a banker, and of course when I grew up that thought never came into my mind.

But this is what I became, people introduced me a banker, so here I am., But what we did could be done because I knew nothing about banking..if I knew about banking probably I wouldn’t have done that. So this is one consolation for people who don’t know things...there is a great future waiting for you.. This is an advantage- sometimes a real advantage not knowing – because if you know things you inherit a  mindset. And once you have that mindset you cant breakthrough that mindset. And this is our biggest problem in life : breaking through the mindsets. And institutions of higher learning where all these mindsets are really formulated; and once you go through it, you thought you received knowledge giving you a very clear vision to see the world; in reality it may be the other way, you lose your vision, the freshness of your vision is lost, because we try to imitate, fall in line with the existing thoughts.

This is the most unfortunate part of the educational process - the way I felt all along :in the process of education we become the mini-professor; the professor who taught us and we follow the professor so closely we turn out to be a tiny image of that professor. That’s we have such a school of thought and such a school of thought – how come in that school of though some other school of thought does not penetrate. Because everybody follows that procedure.  I mention this because the greatest battle I have to fight is mindsets. People tend to think the way they are trained to think- they cannot get away from it. So this is a change for academic systems – how to retain freshness of mind whilst bringing knowledge to students.

2 TALES OF 2 BANKING SYSTEMS – WHITHER SUSTAINABILITY INVESTMENT?

 If you look at Grameen bank for example – if you raise the question how did you decide on the procedures that you gave created in Grameen bank, how did you design these things, where did it come from whatever you have done- my answer would be a simple one – it is not exactly what it is but it describes what it is-  in a lighter vain I can say whenever we need a little procedure in  a specific case of in doing our work in Grameen bank in the early years we just looked at the conventional banks, what  do they do in such a situation, and once we figured out what they do, we just do the opposite. So if you take piece by piece almost you will see the reflection of it. Everything we do - almost the opposite of what the conventional banks do. So sometimes people think that microcredit means giving tiny loans, which is true but they don’t see how the whole system works – then the real microcredit will come out. The basic principle of banking is : the more you have the more you can get. That’s the basic principle. You have to have a lot to get lot. The corrolary of it:  if you have less, you get nothing

And we reversed that basic principle. Our principle sis: the less you have the higher attention you get from us. If you have absolutely nothing then you get the highest priority. So we started from that basic premise and built the system on that.

Conventional banks look at your position/ your wealth and against that they give you new money to accumulate more. We dismissed that on day one: we said that if you want to do business with the poorest people to ask for any position – and design system on base of that – is useless and ridiculous. So we don’t have any collateral in Grameen bank or microcredit programs – so no collateral , no guarantee, no lawyers, we don’t have any lawyers. And these are the basic features of the conventional bank. You cannot go to a conventional bank and do business with them without lawyers looking over everything you do. So we said it would be useless to have all those things – and we designed something that does not depend on that. So basically it is a trust-based banking, and funnily enough it works. And its particularly amazing at this moment when you see the subprime crisis where you have the collateral, the  lawyers, everything but it didnt work – you are now ready to write off some 400 billion dollars.

3 FAMILY IS CULTURAL CORE OF HEALTHY SOCIETY COMPOUNDS STRONG ECONOMY NOT VICE VERSA

And microcredit is going on with us for 31 years, and many more orgs for lesser time, but is a globally operating system. One common thing you hear about MC is a very high repayment rate 98-100% despite the fact that you are doing business with the poorest people. And conventional banks want you to have lots of experience in the business for which you are borrowing money.  You are supposed to be an expert in your business. We go to women to tell her what Grameen bank will do , encourage her to take a loan and get into some income generating activity; and her answer is always please dont give me money I dint know anything; she will repeatedly mention I dont touch money, I never touched money in my life- give it to my husband. But we dont walk away. In the beginning my students, who were working with me were frustrated – why dont you forget about women? – they say they dont know anything , how can you give something to people to do to use money when they say they dont know  anything about what to with the money. So repeatedly i needed to talk to them... that when the women say they no I dont know what to do , dont take it as their answer this is not their voice; this is the voice of the history- the history that generated fear after fear in them and made them believe that they are nobody; they have no capacity to do anything except to take care for the children and the family. So that’s how when you come with the money , they kind of get scared, something terrible will happen to them, so our job is to peel off that fear, layer by layer, so that one day we can build enough courage in them that one or two will say: well let me try. So that’s the day we will be waiting for- so dont give up. We had to work for 6 years to bring the level to 50-50 –because this was our initial decision that half of our borrowers must be women. Because I was complaining against the conventional banks – not only are they wring by rejecting the poor people from their system, they are also wring and unjust to reject women for their system – all kinds of women any levels of income., I pointed out that not even 1% of their borrowers were women. This was mid 1970s when I was complaining. Today in 2008, you can almost repeat same compliant in Bangladesh. The situation has not changed. So when I began I wanted to make sure half the borrowers in my system are women.  So that’s why we try to encourage women for 6 years. Once we achieved that we saw that the money that went through to the family by women brought so much more benefits than the money that went to the family through men. So we started asking the question what is so good about 50:50? Why stick to 50:50, why mot open up and concentrate on women if it is so good with them. So we did –and we started focusing women as a result we moved from 50 to 60 to 70 to 90% .

Today we have 7.5 million borrowers in Bangladesh – 97% women. And they own the bank- this bank is owned by the borrowers themselves.

We encourage the children of Grameen families to go to school. So we came up with a system where we finally succeeded in nearly 100% of children being n school. Then we started giving scholarships because some of these children not only went to school but they were at the top of the class- This is a kind of a thrilling experience to see  - not only for first time in the whole history of their family did someone go to school, but he or she is top of the class.  Every year we have a little ceremony in the village honoring the new recipients of scholarships and recognising their parents and invite all the important people of the village so the family and the child feels tall that they have achieved something. Last year we have given 51000 children scholarships for their performances in the schools.

Notes for The Margin

We're at work absorbing these leads...

Great fan of Toolkit Citizen Particpation which also has intriguing search categories to identify tools with -eg this is what media toolkits it classifies

My father interviewed as many leaders of the broadcast era (1950 to 1990) as just about anyone. You can see many of his country future histories in The Economist- starting with his 1962 predication that Japan was on an upward exponential, which no Western commentator with the exceptions of (help us list : Drucker) believed to be a wise forecast, but my dad knew from deep (ie ask ordinary industrial people not politicians and certainly not PR agents) research to be a megatrend that was already spinning.

When you ask my father so which national leaders' governments helped their peoples to innovate through the next great change that was enveloping the nation he says: none, pause unless we count governments that got out of the way - eg just after world war 2 Japan's and Germany's while the people like Sony's Akio Morita got on with rebuilding future international market capabilities.

When prompted again, my father comes up with some small countries: - eg Singapore had a near perfect government for its rising exponential. Then there are 2 national teams where some leaders have done extraordinarily well over a generation but their partnering institutions in leadership have messily heckled so that the progress has been slow if sustainable. In this category, let's dare mention what's been good and bad about India and the United Kindgom - 2 regions my family trees come fro most

Gandhi as refereed by Einstein was the greatest upturn national leader ever seen. His system for developing India has not always been truly applied but economically Manmohan Singh's economic decisions have been the best ever sustained over 15 years by a central banker or national leader. And the ethics of Sonia Gandhi should be a case for every truth-loving Indian to rejoice.

Turning to Britain; we have had in the royal family Queen Mother and current Queen: the 2 most ethical leaders any country could be blessed with. Given this it is amazing how other constitutional partners have not played the upward exponential the way the Queen and her nations cross-cultural peoples merited. Let's leave out prime ministers from this appraisal - and ask how is it that the world service and largest public broadcaster could have had such a volatile exponential instead of one that constitutionally partnered the people and the queen. Please help us make an incident report over the last 40 years which cut the BBC's purpose from exploring the greatest a public broadcast sector could be in inspiring up a nation to not that much better than any commercial broadcast network's dumbing down and lack of appetite for investigating questions that big powers may not want innovative peoples to hear about.

Example:
During the Wilson Government, the BBC needed its biggest rise in licence fees from each public household as it was transforming from black and white one channel tv, to colour and more channels. Wilson was having a bad time with the Unions and did a get-your-license increase deal with the BBC governor. Your newscasters will not use the word strike but industrial action, and your interviewers will never stage programs on political issues without ensuring there is balance of left and right (as if this one dimension represents the whole of human in query). Normally my father would have had a great time exposing this monopoly on human speech, but his new editor Alastair Burnett also had a night job as tv anchor on commercial tv channels. The one story which Alistair thought it would be unfair for anyone ion The Economist to cover was broadcast tv's public and commercial scorecards. Whilst the BBC has freed itself from the vocabulary of industrial disputes, it has not to this day liberated public discussion on any issue that politicians call political from the absurd notion of one dimensional party political balance. Almost no issue of world crisis relevant to me or my child is resolvable by voting left or right, and certainly none is reconcilable by voting for the 5-year party political interests that are the longest period of time any British Prime Minister cares about. Indeed, in very non-transparent ways such as stealth taxes, recent British Prime Ministers haven't cared about any future time period's truth at all as long as they can disguise inquiries into the truth as was evident in the war between Blair and the BBC which preceded the decisions of whether Britain as a nation thought America's plan for an Iraq war was sustainable or otherwise worth-life in ways that ordinary people would like to be cross-culturally debated at the grassroots and not just by those who can hear Big Ben.

As another example, in the early 1990s, both parties started to get worried that the BBC might gain more respect for truth across the British public than their posturings ever again would in an age of technology's knowledge-flowing networks. So they sent in the worst sort of accountant who redesigned the whole of BBC's organisational system in small boxes. If you can’t justify the worth of your separate type of programming content , out it goes. These blind accountants- who incidentally have now been proven to use maths that compounds destruction of deep purpose and any innovative wealth - ripped BBC radio apart, and rippled fear through the governors of the BBC which is spreadsheet to this day.

I know a 500-strong network of architects who are ready to realise a dream : Qutopia. Unlike Disney’s Epcot, magical good news is actually achieved by each summit or sustainability-hunting network that visits Qutopia. For example, perhaps the first summit is among national leaders who are scared by petroleum shortages. When you get to Qutopia, you find that no carbon energy is used at all - the buildings photosynthesise all the energy they need, and demonstrate how this can be done with all shapes of building in just about any hot country.

Perhaps the next group to go there is a thousand kids from around the world. Maybe the Bill Gates Foundation sponsored a competition to find 1000 children who wanted to meet every culture under the sun and who are so highly trusted in their peer networks that cross-cultural waves of harmony percolate out through youth ; or perhaps a 1000 New Orleans meet to finalise a blueprint that transparently includes every constituency in the regeneration.

And perhaps the BBC has been in voted to be the media broadcaster out of Qutopia. The strict rule : wait until the group have a positive out come to announce, and help them celebrate it. By all means follow the conflict resolution processes that often come first before sides innovate world changemaking, But show the edited highlights after all sides have got it together and even heroise the struggles they went through to make it but don’t stuff a global camera up everyone’s nose while they are opening space to transform a community disaster into a sustainable way forward.

If you think I am teasing about architectural solutions being the only ones likely to steer humanity through global climate's inconvenient truth, drop me a mail at chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk explaining what sort of application you wish to architect if our network’s experts can convince you that in terms of clean energy revolutions, they are one of the 21st Century's real things.

 


we'd like to display your biggest questions - info@worldcitizen.tv

4 FREE MARKETS FREE WOMEN  (or whomever history has discriminated against whereas conditional aid spins white man’s burden)

Then we saw these students gradually moved into higher education -; so we introduced education loans, we have 21000 students on education loans going to medical schools, engineering schools, universities, some of them completed phds some scholarships in international institutions – and now we are offered scholarships from Harvard, York College n NY, MIT is considering offering scholarships to children coming from Grameen families. So this is an amazing kind of thing that you notice. When I go to the villages meeting these women who have been working so hard to make a difference in their life, it is an amazing experience being with them.  And now I see a new phenomenon coming, added to that, when I visiting the daughter from the city comes in having just finished her degree in medicine. She is a doctor practising now- so I see the mother and the daughter standing side by side , one is an illiterate person who joined Grameen bank 15 years ago, took tiny loans started her life, sent her daughter school , now she’s a doctor- so you can not escape the though entering your mind looking at these 2 ladies standing next to each other that her mother could have been a doctor too. But society never gave the chance to her mother – all we have done through Grameen bank allowed her to improve her income and the capacity to send her daughter to school and ... to become a doctor. Our mother must have the same elements in her- there is no reason why she should have less than what her daughter has. ...

5 POVERTY IS A SYNONYM FOR FAILED SYSTEM

The conclusion you come to is that poverty is not in the person, it is created by the system. So if you want to address the issue of poverty, it is not rushing to her but rushing to us – what did we do wrong, where did we go wrong, fix it up – if we can pick up the seeds of poverty that we have put inside all the institutions , policies, concepts we have built, nobody in the world will be a poor person., There is nothing wrong in the human way. We messed it up and them blamed them – ah these are lazy people or whatever!

Sometimes I describe poverty by comparing with the bonsai tree- the little tree that you grow in a flower pot. If you take the best seed of the tallest tree in the forest, and put in a flower pot, it doesnt grow at all , it grows this big. And you wonder what happened to this tree, why doesnt it grow,. There’s nothing wrong with the seed, we picked the best seed. Thing that went wring was the base we allowed that seed: the flower pot; so it couldnt get the nourishment to grow as tall as the tree we saw in the forest.  And I try to explain that the poor people is bonsai people, there is nothing wrong with their seed, only society never allowed them the space to grow. So its not their fault. The fault is not in the seed but the base we provided to the seed. So if we change the base they will be as tall as anyone else. So that’s the challenge : how to change the base so people can grow

6 POVERTY CAN ALSO BE A PLACE WITH MOST TO GAIN FROM LIFE-CRITICAL INFORMATION BEING OPENLY NETWORKED

In Grameen bank. We encourage the children to go into education, to create a completely new second generation because getting out of poverty is just simply crossing the line. In a country like Bangladesh, crossing the line doesnt ensure you remain out f poverty. Because we are a country with all kinds of disaster happening all the time. Flood is a very common phenomenon – last year we had 2 major floods and then on top of it we had a big cyclone at 250 km per hour speed  ; it blew away peoples possessions, then a tidal surge came and washed away - killed people,  eliminated their livelihoods and so on. So that’s the environment where we live. So we thought if we can concentrate on the second generation - to grow into a different kind of persons - so that they will be far far away from the poverty line, so that even if a disaater comes they will not be pushed back into poverty- so that’s our effort to make sure we can do that

7 GRASSROOTS SYSTEMS LIKE GRAMEEN ARE HI-TRUST SERVICE FRANCHISES

Several features that I will quickly mention illustrated by what we practice at Grameen bank. We have 2500 branches all over the country –each branch is graded by a 5* evaluation system,  like hotels. Our branches are always looking at number of stars shows level of accomplishment they have reached. Green star means 100% repayment record for the whole year. Blue star means they have enough surplus of deposits over loans they give.  Each branch has to find its own money , monyt does not come from anywhere else not from head office, not from neighboring branch. When we open a new branch, literally we literally give an address to the branch manager. Here is the place you are supposed to open a branch, go and open the branch. We dont give you any money. He goes to the address, finds it where its suppose to be, his job and colleague who accompany him to start the branch is to mobilise deposits as a bank. He still doesn’t have an office yet, but he starts mobilising deposits. As he starts mobilising deposits his task is to organise poor women in village so he can start lending them money because hen the income starts coming in. So he must rely 100% on the deposits of his branch to lend out money and then create a cushion, a surplus so thgat in emergency situation still he doesnt have to borrow any money. So if branch gets such a surplus it gets another star.  Our basic principle is when you open a new branch, not only you run branch with money you mobilise in locality  you must get to a break even point within 12 months. And they do that within 12 months they come to a break point – and get another star the brown one. The fourth star comes when all the children of Grameen  borrowers are in school.  Not a single child is missed. Then you get a violet star. On average a branch has 4500 borrowers (with 10000 children) so this is quite a tough task, They work very hard to see why anyone is left out, why someone has dropped out and how to get them back in school, its a continuous cycle but when you have ensured that you get the star.  And when you have all these 4500 families out of poverty, not a single family in poverty, you get another star. S when a branch has 5* this is quite a significance achievement for anybody. I tell my colleagues if I ran the country, I would give 5* a state honor because after all helping people get out of poverty is what the state is trying to do but you have done that with no cost to taxpayers, you have done it on your own, the money came for the locality, donors didnt help you out, its all yours. So having a 5* branch – you have solved the problems that you set for yourself

If you ever visit a Grameen branch, first questions to ask are how many stars have you got and what colors. Then you know what they have done – if they say they have 3 stars then most likely they will say we will get our fourth start by April this year because everyone is planning when their next star is . When I meet 100 village staff, the traditional pattern is the 5 stars sit at the front, 4* in the next row back and so on. And those in the front sit with pride- we dont give any financial benefit to 5*. I have always said that financial benefit will take away their pride –its not something you convert in money, you stand tall you have done the work, this is your pride you have contributed to your society. And when I meet someone with no stars, I always hear somebody saying dont worry the next time you come next I will be at the front. He knows he has to earn a lot of stars, he’s assuring he’s working on it. That kinds of energises the whole system that you are doing something you take pride in – important thing that you do

20 Collaboration Entrepreneur Network Priorities in 2008 -info requests welcome info @worldciiozen.tv

To tell you the truth, many of our collaboration teams made a real pigs year of the marketing interfaces of challenges (where correspoding) in 2007; hopefully the lessons and the network actions are ready just in time for changing over to community-up economics and sustainability globalisation in 2008

 Collaboration Entrepreneur Gap in virtual media world: there seems to be a gap in mobilising actionable projects matching urgent community-up development goals and local sustainability crises.  Simply speaking this is to catalogue best benchmark solutions so far known inviting open improvements.

8 ENTREPRENEUR IS THE CREATIVE TALENT UNIQUELY PACKAGED INSIDE US AT BIRTH And in connection with that I will mention something else relating to pride. One of the criticisms often made of microcredit is : one has to be really entrepreneurial person to benefit from microcredit- so only the entrepreneurial poor benefit form microcredit. Whenever I hear that it really burns me up, because I firmly believe all human beings are entrepreneurs. No exception This is a package in which all human beings were born. It is not something that can be taken away still you call a human being. That’s how we came to this planet, survived on this planet, and that’s what we are. Some may have discovered it, others may not have discovered it - the talent inside them – because society never allowed them to discover it – so the wonderful gift of creativity , entrepreneurship and energy and innovativeness that each human being is born with – not every person is lucky enough to unwrap that gift – you got the gift, but nobody introduced you to that gift and ever allowed you to unwrap and have a peep at what you have got, you dont even know you die without ever knowing what you could have been, That is not her fault, not his fault, its the fault of the society that never allowed that opportunity. 9 FEMALE BEGGARS- DEVELOPING WORLD’S NUMBER 1 ENTREPRENEURIAL OPPORTUNITY FOR SOCIAL ACTION So after repeatedly debating this, about 4 years ago we said let’s demonstrate this. Let’s create a separate program where we exclusively lend money to beggars. My argument is you cannot be poorer than beggars and if they can show entrepreneurship, then you have made a point. So we started doing that – go to the beggars sit down with them spend hours talking – our first question: at what point in life did she become a beggar.? Its an important point : society has pushed and pushed and finally brought her to the tipping point –and she couldn’t take it any more and stretched out her hand: please help me I cannot survive anymore, help me to survive and feed my children. By understanding this process you understand the whole society, how ruthless it is to push a person to that level. After we go through this process, we said well : we can do something if you want to. As you go from house to house begging, would you like to carry some merchandise with you – some candy, some cookies, toys for the kids whatever people would like –if you’d like to do that we will be your financing. That will be your business and we will be your financier. And people started liking it, why not? And we encouraged thee and said after all you are going there anyway. This is no extra work for you. So give people option- and they may like to buy something from you or they might t lie to give you charity – and they have 2 options. It became popular with the beggars, but what is amazing it became extremely popular with our staff. I didnt expect that . I thought they would be grumbling we already have enough work. Instead they kept pressuring that they wanted to make more beggars into the program because I had made the rule that nobody can take more than 1 beggar to serve. They became so involved in it that they wanted to take more beggars. I said no just one beggar. My idea was if you have too many beggars with you will probably not pay attention to them ; so if there’s one you will pay attention. This is addition to their regular work – so they will be doing everything, this is additional responsibility, optional responsibility, nobody required to do it. We have 27000 staff and very quickly 27000 beggars were in our program!. And the staff were saying give us 10 beggars, we can handle 10, and I said no way.. The pressure became so unbearable so I finally allowed 2,3 4, step by step. Now we are at the 4 level so we have more than 100000 beggars in program. In the 4 years, amazing thing is that more than 10000 beggars have quitted begging completely – they are door to door salespeople – some are successful personal shoppers- because in Bangladesh like many other countries women cannot go to the market to buy simple things so she has to tell the husband please bring me matches, bring me this and when husband comes home at night ask did you bring it – oh I forgot – so now she has found a way – this person is becoming a go-between the market and the woman. And the remaining 90000 beggars I would say they are part-time beggars; they are mixing begging an selling at the same time but they are still in the process. My impatient colleagues – some of them why cant they get out of begging like the others: I said dont push them , that’s not what the whole idea is- they are in the process of closing down their begging division; and this is their core business-to close down the core business takes a lot of time, and in the mean time they have to build up their sales division so its a restructuring of their business. And when you talk to beggars, these are smart people. They tell which house is good for begging, which is good for selling – I say to myself this is good, they know the market segmentation! Its amazing. We never trained them – all we did was just a loan for things they would like to carry round. They figure out which is a best-seller, shifting into those items. And the loan: that we give- typical loan is 15 dollars. With a 15 dollar loan, if you can help a beggar to change his whole life – why can’t we do more of it? Society is so blind that wouldnt even allow this 15 dollar loan to a beggar who would like change his or her life. Our idea is very simple: this is a loan you have to pay it back whenever you can. But there is no interest on this loam; so it will never grow- so dont worry about it getting big. And there is no time limit, so you’ll never become a defaulter. So you are immune from all those worries. So again coming back, if a beggar can figure out how to run business and change his or her life, how can we say that they are to blamed for their poverty? If the system is at fault, who dont you fix the system. If institutions are at fault, why dont you fix the institution like banking for example which never gave any loan to poor people. Two third of the world population dont have the eligibility criteria to satisfy the conventional banks. So they are not creditworthy in their eyes – so why dont you fix those institutions. 31 years ago they could say they are not creditworthy. Today they cannot say that. The recent subprime crisis proved it again.: the poor are more creditworthy than the borrowers if the conventional banks. So this is the question, and I am raising the question again about institutions, the concept –and one concept I focus on is the concept of business. The concept of business : to maximise profits.. And I look at it: the economist, the theoreticians who built this theory – they assume that human beings are like money making machines, they look like robots, they just maximiae profits. But the real human beings are not robots, are not single dimensional human being of economic theory, real human beings are multidimensional human , that’s what the beauty of the human being, why cant we bring the whole human being into economics. Rather than cut off the real interesting part of human being and leave only the money part of human being. That’s not a fair interpretation of human being. So I am arguing that if you want to justify the totality of human being, you need at least 2 kinds of business: one that we already have making money, the other business is to do good to people , do good to the planet. 10 SOCIAL BUSINESS MODELS- SUSTAINABILITY INVESTMENTS SIMPLEST SYSTEMS I am calling it Social Business. It is a non loss non dividend company with a social objective. So if the traditional business, the one recognised in economics, is all about me -I want to benefit everything that’s why I run business it also has to come to me I am the owner; the other business is all about others nothing about me, just the reversal. Then we can put the two together, that what the human being is ;-the human being wants to make money and be helpful to others. That’s part of human being – you cant deny this. But today you can’t exercise that, if you want to exercise it you have to step outside economics and become a philanthropist involved with charities. Why cant we within the economic world be a fill human being. So that’s the idea of social business. And if we can create a Social Business this can be much more powerful than philanthropy or charity. Because in charity , charity dollar has only one life , you can use it only once. If you want to do it again ,you have to find another dollar to do it. So you are dependent on someone to repeat it because it doesnt go beyond one life. But if we can transform their whole thing into a social business, social business dollar has endless life, it recyles , and it is sustainable , it creates an institution. Charity does not create a permanent institution,. Its a program, you do it, achieve it, that’s the end of it . If you want to repeat it you have to have fresh money to do it again. But not in business, in business it just circulates. One of the examples I give in my book is the Grameen-Danone collaboration in a social business. We created this yogurt company as a social business, both sides agree for a social purpose there are millions of malnourished children in Bangaldesh—and other countries but we have our share – because their diet is so poor , so what we have decided is that we will take all the micronutrients that is missing in children and put these into the yogurt, all the vitamins iron zinc etc, and then sell this yogurt at a very cheap price to the children of poor families, and they will enjoy it because it is a delicious yogurt and they love it. And the company recovers its cost. Its not based on charity or subsidies. But both partners agree that they will never take any dividend out of it, because its a social business. In Social Business you dont take any dividend out , you can take back your investment money, exactly what you invested, but it stops there. Because all the profit made by the company is stays with the company to achieve the goal you have set for it. So here the bottom line is how much impact have you made in the life of people, that’s the bottom line. Unlike the bottom line how much money have you made in your business. By accepting the social business model we have a complete structure so that we can transform all the issues of poverty, healthcare, nutrition, safe drinking water, sanitation by social business models. And make a difference on all the problems we see surrounding ourselves, So then in the business schools that give you MBAs young people to be trained to joined the maximising company, we need another department at school that will be creating social MBAs trained to design social business how to measure impact, how to reduce the cost so you can go to the poorest people and improve the health, improve the social conditions of whatever social goal you have defined because the whole thing will be calculated completely differently.

Macrae & Macrae open source a bank of over 2070 Entrepreneurial Revolution (ER) cases - roughly that's 10 per year since the systemic term entrepreneur was coined by a French alumnus of Adam Smith - preneur "take between" entre 

We offer to guide you through:

  a selection of 2070 cases of the most revolutionary innovation stories seen around the world is to help identify members of the entrepreneurial tree as well as those who are not. There is one huge mistake to avoid first. Entrepreneurs never ever judge their success in monetary terms; always in humanly purposeful systems. Of course the architect of a system that empowers ever larger numbers of people to maximise their productive difference or to demand what human beings and society see as sustaining future progress may indeed earn large fortunes, But it is systemising purpose and innovation that serves the world which compounds goodwill and fortune not vice versa. If you don't understand that please call yourself whatever you like but not an entrepreneur and not an economist.

The cases are not evenly distributed over the centuries. Many were collected by my father while he deputy edited The Economist over 4 decades writing more leaders than any other journalist in this medium's history. A lot more have been searched out through the net - something that has been our passion since writing the first future history on the net and whether it would sustain or end the world back in 1984

In our 1984 future history book on a networking world which completed a trilogy on entrepreneurial revolution (parts 1,2 published in The Economist 1976, 1982) we:

  • observed that the greatest tipping points in the history of human productivity coincided with one of 2 types of communications revolutions: transport's physical communication (eg industrial steam engine's train meant for the first time the average person moved more than 20 miles during their whole life), information communications (eg the invention of the printing press).

    Networks would bring a crisis without precedence because:
  • they connected both type of communications revolution
  • their impact would wave worldwide in under one generation : between 1984-2024
  • if any of the systems we compounded through every global village had a fatal flaw over time, then that connectivity could vause waves of global destruction putting the question of sustainability of our children's children at risk
  • MULTINATIONAL SOCIAL BUSINESS : FUTURE CAPITALISM CASE 1

     So one of the issues that I raised with Grameen Danone, when I was asking what kind of cup do you use in selling yogurt because they sell yogurt all over the world. They showed me the cup I asked is it biodegradable, they said no its not. So I said why cant you make biodegradable cups I dont want to see Bangladesh rural areas littered with plastics just because we sold yogurt. They said well we will have to do some research. I said go out and do the research. So they went out around the world to figure out how to make biodegradable cups

    Finally they come back very excited, we have found it where what. In China, cups made of corn starch –very good material, which satisfies all of our conditions, and they brought some cups made of corn starch. And I said can I eat it. Why should you want to eat it. Because poor people are paying for it, why should they pay for something which they have no use for. Why cant you find a material that kids can eat alongside the yogurt.

    Their money shouldnt be wasted, They said we cant find this thing; I said you’ll find it. I said when I buy ice cream I get a cornet. And I love cornets. Why cant you find something like that. They said no cornets wont work. I said find the one that will work because that cup should also carry nutrition as they are paying for it. So finally they got convinced and said that they would ask their research facility in Paris. We will give the task to our scientist to find it. I said how long will it take. They said a year or so. I said can we make it 6 months. Because otherwise there will be useless expenditure on these cups people will be making but with no nutrition.

    The reason I mention all this is that the moment you design something as  a social business a lot of other issues come up. In the profit maximising business you dont see that because you are busy to make the money, the bigger you make the container the bigger it is the more money you make ,so  you make it bigger unnecessarily, you spend a lot of money on packaging just to lure you are in , you dont get anything out of it but they get the money in the process you waste resources. So if you fix the concepts and the institutions nobody will be a poor person in the world, so we can create a world free of poverty. And then I say the only place we will see poverty will be poverty museums.

    We will build a museum in London where they will show where poor people used to live in this country, and now there is no poor people in this country! And similarly in many other countries. And let’s fix the date on which we will inaugurate the museum in each Future Capital and country.


    Thought for a decade to 2015: In a world where all human sustainability will compound round whether we connect transparency, truth, fairness and love in time : the biggest mistake we can make is to teach our children that the entrepreneur is the successful money grabber. To let anyone make this interpretation is a breach of the hippocratic oath of the economics profession as you can see if you go back to when alumni of Adam Smith economics coined the word in 1800. Put another way, you can be sure that google will remain the most valuable brand in the world whilst it connec`ts more goodwill among people that any other human relations system. To charter a brnad or an industry sector with a sustainable future the top 2 keys are : Just do no evil and sustain investment in your deepest purpose knowing that requires context specific metrics to over-rule any tangible standards accountants may invent. Two mathematical reaons for this guidance are:


    Inside the new media : 1 google video

    Countries assessed for entrepreneurial multi-culture:

     

  • unless you are measurable to your deepest purpose every cycle other metrics will compound deviation from and dilution around your purpose
  • systems that are productive (from a learning human being to an organsiation worth the world valuing and interacting with) systemise tense relationships - any conflict that enters into such a systems soon compounds canerous interactions destroying goodwill and truly purposeful information flows; the way to be certain that this will be any system's fate is not to be transparently and humanly measurable to its greater purpose. As long the people who govern an organisation have flopw maps sufficient for the above systemic understanding,then the maths of sustainability investment is simple - if extraordinarily contextually detailed. If ever you (as a future pensioner, investor in your community or country) hear a boardroom (or any leadership team) moaning how complex truth decision making is, get as far away from the organisation or industry sector as you possibly can because what they mean is that they are being blinded by badwill metrics. And that is the riskiest way to command any living system let alone a network (including our living globe) that interacts system times system time system...
  • Britain rated by ***** Anita Roddick (8 minute video) review: most do better on service entrepreneur, public service entrepreneur, on broadcast media, on real public debates, going beyond being ruled by numbers men;our saving grace is most of our immigrants have highly entrepreneurial cultures - ends with a wonderful protest story from elsewhere - how a corrupt local government colapsed in India because 50000 of its citzens got together and laughed at it for 24 hours!

    What Everybody Needs to Know First About Economics

    Economics designs peoples futures but this depends on what logics are analysed- here are the logics The Economist used in the early 19080s when it discussed how the net gneration could be the most productive time for youth

      

    A nation/place cannot sustain growth unless its capital is structured so that family's savings are invested in their next generation's productivity. Norman Macrae's 1954 book on The London Capital Market provides chapter and verse. Historically it was timely as London's industrial revolution had planted most of the developed world's laws and financial instruments. Futurewise this book became a source for Norman's forty years of leadership challenges including 3000 editorials. THese became branded in the 2 genres of entrepreneurial revolution and future history of the net generation genre which he focused on from 1972. They script in practical details most of the changes that economists would need to make to historic rules if globalisation is not to collapse the worldwide financial system of 2010s

    Norman framed his writings on future purposes huan most wanted around the idea that The Net Generation to 2024 would face change on a scale never previously experienced by our human race. To prevent risks and celebrate job creating opportunities Norman proposed in his 1984 book (The 2024 Report) that the world should unite around youth's most exciting millennium goal. He explained why economics would design the most popular futures if the goal was chosen as racing to end poverty everywhere. Reasons included: its possible, its exciting, it creates jobs post-industrial generation will need to design around collaborative technology, it can empower youth to joyfully unite cultures as we become borderless (more connected than separated), it aligns economics principles with nature's exponentially (compounding) rules of evolutionary selection which are community-up and open.

     download more profiles of 100 collaboration leaders of 2010s = youths most productuive decade 

     

    We are shocked how few people know of the main findings of the renowned economist Maynard Keynes- increasingly only economics riles the world and the greatest risk to the future working lives of our children comes from elderly macroeconomists who hire themselves out to the biggest who want to get bigger.



    Historically when faulty systems of macroeconomists ruined civilisations they fell one by one. But Einstein took Keynes logic further and hypothesised that the first generation to become more connected than separated by technology would be subject to a final exam. Now if we let erroneous macroeconomists rule whole continents of nations will collapse.



    By 1976 my father (Norman macrae) -probably the last student of economics mentored by Keynes-  was writing at The Economist why the next half century would see the net generation tested - he called upon the genre of Entrepreneurial Revolution (ER) networkers to sort out the greatest  innovation challenge economics - and so the human race - will ever face .

     

     

    logo320.jpg.

    The opportunity of 10 times more productivity for the net generation (with million times more collaboration technology than man's 1960's race to moon)

    .The THREAT is preventing the threat of collapsing continent-wide system of value exchange. By 2020 the (exponential track impacting future) sustainanbilyty of every village around the globe will likely be lost or won

    ..logo3responsibility.jpg...How could we be experiencing record youth unemployent when we are living in a time of a million times more collaboration tech than a generation ago? According to research by Entrepreneur networks started at The Economist in 1976, we are 36 years off track in compounding 2 unustainable systems whose follies multiply each other
    • that caused by non-economic media which also distracts us with glossy images and soiundbites instead of future realities and integrated cross-cultural and inter-generational understanding - full briefing here
    • World's biggest maths error compounded by macroeconomists and all global professions with a ruling monopoly - see below
    Discuss: what does everyone need to know about the way economists think and behave. Understand 2 opposite segments of E : The Unacknowledged Microeconomist and the Fatally Conceited.MacroEconomist

    Keynes - because economics will incresingly rule the world, the greatest danger to the futures of youth is elderly macroeconomists where fame maks them compete to superpower over peoples  

     Boulding: ****the historic significance of capitalism is precisely a society in which exchange has become a more important source of power than threat**** in his book economics as science

    Von hayek- given the fatal conceit in my profession, I really think you shouldn't be doing this - awarding me a first Nobel Prize in economics 
    freedom of speech and everything about the future you want, NOW depends on enough people knowing how to play the value exchange game - and why that isnt exactly what the game of monopoly teaches - an exchange is where each side says I wants something from you so let's work out what I can do for you and purposefully improve on this over time through hi-trust communal feedback
    debate difference between true capitalism and phoney capitalism
    • agree on a picture like that on the right- we have seen cases where one of the 10 coordinates shown felt the system had betrayed their greatest trust, and so zeroised the organsaition or network (even ones that accountants had been reprorting record profits ahd $100 billion equity
    •  start discussing multi-win models - see our 4 favorites from 36 years of debates with entrepreneuruial revoltionaries
    • choose say 12 markets whose future purpose is most vital to sustaining your children - and use media to agree what the greatest human purpose and corresponding mkilennium goals are that need investing in to fee each market and youth's working lives in serving the most valuable purpose
    • get those (including all parents?) who save across generations to throw out speculators from banking systems and capital markets - eg next time there is a bailout (which means taking your childrens money to refinance a bank) wipe out shareholders; let them set lawyers on old managers and any politicians their pr's lobbied; keep savings accounts safe; restructure bank so that it invests in youth productivity and sustaining communities not bubbles, and not trapping people in debt

    Goodwill explains up to 90% of value impacts of any organsaition in a networked economy- yet no nation yet requires that organisations it licences to audit goodwii. 20 years of research has proved the following reciprocal relationship - the purposeful question" who would uniquely miss what if your organsaition did not exist?, has the reciprocal question why let your organisation contnue to exist if it has broken my life-crtiical trust it promised to serve

    joyofeconomics.jpg

    .........................................

    valuetrue capitalism maps how each side win-win-win from other sides communal purpose over time -this  goes back over 250 years to the criteria of free markets adam smith demanded freedom of speech questioned - he talked about the transparency of community markets where a rogue trader might fool some of the people but not for long and not for too big to fail! - the journal of social business edited by adam smith scholars at his alma mater Glasgow University advises people of any other tongue how to build up from adam's hi-trust ideas to such constructs as sustainable global vilage networking first mapped by schumacher (another keynes alumni) - we have a library of free articles for you to choose and translate from

    phoney capitalism spins a monopoly, a non-free maket - one side rules by saying I want to take more and more from all of you- esentially this is what rules when global accountants audit only how much one side has profited/extracted withouth how much has it sustains other sides- phoney capitalism can only result in exponentai meltdown becuase so much has been extracetd from system that its unsustainable for human lives or for nature or for both

    DO YOU KNOW...
    Q: Original Purpose of Economics? A The Scotland of the 1750s was at the end of a first generation to have found their country taken over by England's Empire., So Adam Smith was motivated to start writing about how to design systems so that peoples could could look forward to their next generation sustaining more productive lives than they had had ... 7 quarters later keynes general theory issued humanity's greatest challenge- economics as a systems science had reached the state that only economics rules the world ... moreQ: What do the man-made systems that rule the world look like? A Purposeful value exchanges composed round 5 main flows of how productively peoples lives are used and 5 main demands human beings make as co-workers, customers, owners, stewards of the globe, stewards of society at the village level - moreQ: Why can't human race in 21st C be sustained with choice of economics made by 20th C biggest banks and govs etc? A Long Story: ER alumni are in their 37th year of offering debating scripts eg1 on wht some industrial age systems after world war 2 were designed to be too big to exist as the first net generation became more connected than separated by geographical borders ... What is known is that 2010s is most exciting decade to be an entrpreneur because our impacts define what will be possible for all our childrens' children more 

    World Class Brands are in 25th year (as a subnetwork of Norman Macrae's Entrepreneurial Revolution) of helping sustain the most purposeful organsiations or markets in the world. Core to any charter of purpose is a quiz revolving round this question
    - who would uniquely miss what if this didn't exist?. From this Q&A's list of trust-flows, economics maps how to connect producers and demanders of the exchange in multi-win models of purpose. Henceforth, potential conflicts with this goodwill model are audited and resolved at every cycle so that unique purpose is celebrated to lead the future by continuously multiplying the most value and trust. This model provides the simplest benchmark around all exponential impact metrics of sustainability investement can be calculated and the transparency of all multi-win models are webbed around pro-youth economics.

    Muhammad Yunus expresses faith in entrepreneurs at G20 summit

    Posted on: November 23, 2011
    Category: News

    Microfinance Focus, November 4, 2011: Professor Muhammad Yunus was invited to deliver a key note speech during the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Summit held in Nice, France. Professor Yunus addressed an audience of more than 400 entrepreneurs from all G20 countries. In his speech, he shared his personal entrepreneurship experiences, his faith in young entrepreneurs to be the pillars of society and the need to include poor countries in the discussion process in making global decisions.

    Professor Yunus being an entrepreneur himself started off creating the Grameen Bank that provides microfinance services to the poor who had little access to financial provisions. From that, he ventured into a wide number of social businesses such as Grameen Nursing College, Grameen Eyecare Hospitals, Grameen Shakti, etc.

    He has always considered young entrepreneurs to be the most effective solution for the future. He said “In my opinion, G20 YES is a fabulous initiative, gathering so much energy and momentum from all over the world. Because of their creativity and leadership, provided that they commit to share the value they create, these 400 young entrepreneurs in this room can change the world.”

    Professor Yunus is also a member of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) Advocacy Group, advising the Secretary General of the United Nations. Hence, he believes that the next generation of youths should be handed over the process of the MDGs as soon as possible. He believes that entrepreneurs will have a key role to play in fulfilling the MDGs, if they are committed to the social value created by their companies, and social business can be part of the solutions.

    In his speech, he added that the G20 needed to broaden its scope to deal with the current world crisis. It can no longer remain a political forum with economic agendas. The G20 needs to create a social agenda as well. Professor Yunus proposes that ‘social business’ should be brought to the agenda of G20, as one of the concrete and effective solutions to be considered for immediate implementation so as to guide capitalistic investment towards social value and jobs creation, rather than sheer profit maximization strategies. A social business is a cause-driven business where profits stay within the company for its sustainability.

    Lastly, Professor Yunus concluded that the G20 should be expanded into the G25, where poor countries from each continent should be included in the global agenda which they are part of. He added that “Their problems are inter-related with others, and their proposals of solutions should be considered by the most economically advanced countries in making global decisions. A G25 would be a big step toward ensuring that global social issues are raised, and MDGs implementation is fully shared on the global agenda. And finally, because fighting poverty together is the only way to bring long lasting peace in this world.”

     Mapping is a process of discovery. Crucially maps are only as usable as updating correctness of bottom up information. Think of your own use of a map. You look for the "you are here arrow". You want to be directed to somewhere/someone you dont know how to get to; you want your return vist to be safe as well as a value multiplying win-win.
    Does anyone remember the simplest findings of einstein and jon von neumann. Einstein proved that to innovate more value you need to go more micro in what you model; von neumann showed that there is more value to be networked by interfacing safe flows across systems instead of ruling over separation of boundaries. There isnt a single global metrics profession that gets these mathematical -and natural - principles right. Unless we change this global markets will cycle through ever greater collapse and more and more communities will lose sustainability. Mapmaking is that critical an idea to what the net genration will achieve in 2010s; but its also one that children from primary age up can action learn. Its simple. Its just that it works the other way round from top-down people's fatal conceit.
    It explores how to make the invisible principles and practices of real wealth creation visible, and therefore useable. Our planet needs case studies underline the search for new win-wins that build ‘system integrity’
    Trust-flow is the unseen wealth to invest sustainability in. Tranpsarently mapped it develops a goodwill gravity  tyhat invites with roleplayer in a community to multiply goodwill while sustaining their own cashflow.. Trust is not some vague, mushy, abstract warm-hearted sentiment. It is an economic powerhouse – probably just as economically and socially important as oil.
    The point is, there are specific things you need to do to get trust flowing, just as there are specific things you need to do to get oil flowing. And like oil trust has a dark side. Right now, the world is awash with the carbon emissions which threaten the stability and sustainability of its ecosystems. Right now, the world is also awash with the ‘carbon emission’ of trust – mistrust. Indeed it may well be that our ability to tackle the one issue – the threat of environmental catastrophe – depends on our ability to tackle the other issue: how to generate, deepen, extend and sustain trust.>br>But what is the best way of doing this? One thing is for sure. You don’t build and sustain trust via some sentimental exercise of goodwill to all and sundry. There are three very simple principles at the heart of effective trust generation. 
    First, trust is generated via win-win relationships. It’s virtually impossible to generate or sustain trust without mutual benefit for those involved. But beneficial outcomes are not enough in themselves. For trust to be built and sustained, both sides need to signal a demonstrable commitment to finding win-win ways forward. Such a  commitment may require real changes to what we say and do. Second, real ‘win-wins’ are hardly ever purely financial or material. You don’t build trust simply by walking away with more cash in your pocket. Trust works at all the dimensions and levels of human exchange. Yes, it’s about financial and material rewards. But it’s also about purpose (what people want to achieve). It’s about politics with a small ‘p’: the use and abuse of power, the crafting and application of rules of fair play. And it’s about emotions: the sometimes overwhelmingly strong emotions, both positive and negative, that are generated when people deal with other peopleWhat’s constitutes a ‘win’ – a sense of real improvement – is therefore highly specific. It depends absolutely on the details of who the parties are, what they are trying to achieve, in what context. Building trus, therefore involves discovering these specifics. Just as oil doesn’t flow out of the ground, get refined and pump its way into motor vehicles automatically and without effort, so identifying and doing what is necessary to get trust flowing requires dedicated, skilled effort. It requires a disciplined, structured process, not a vague sentiment.

    3) Third, even if we do steps 1) and 2) there’s still a good chance it won’t succeed. Why? Because it ignores an invisible third factor. In the real world, purely two way bilateral relationships don’t exist. There is always a third party whose interests or outcomes are affected by what the other two parties do but who is not a party to the contract. The environment is a case in point. Producers and consumers may both benefit from buying and selling to each other – but what happens if, in doing so, they destroy the environment they both depend on?

    This raises a hugely important question. When two parties pursue win-wins and build mutual trust, are they doing so in a way which creates a win and builds trust for the third party at the same time? Or are they simply pushing the problems – and the mistrust – further down the line on to this third party? Building vigorous, healthy networks of trust is a different kettle of fish to ‘you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours’ win-win conspiracies. It requires a Map of all the key relationships plus careful consideration of knock-on consequences. It requires a different perspective.

    These three simple, basic steps do not happen automatically. They need to be worked at. The territory needs to be deliberately Mapped and explored. What’s more, there are obstacles in our way – mental and practical obstacles that need to be cleared. Prevailing economic theories about ‘rational economic man’ for example, deny the need to commit to win-win outcomes. Instead, they promote supposedly ‘rational’ (i.e. narrowly selfish behaviours) which actively undermine trust The same theories insist that the only valid measure of human benefit is money, thereby excluding from consideration many of the biggest opportunities for improvement. Meanwhile many vested interests do not want to extend the circle of trust to third parties and complete networks because their positions of power depend on their ability to take advantage of the weaknesses of these third parties. That’s another job for Mapping: helping to identify and mount such obstacles.
    The potential benefits of doing so are unthinkably huge. They start with a simple negative: the relief that comes from when you stop banging your head against a brick wall. Mistrust breeds wasteful, wealth destroying conflict that tends to feed on itself. Anger and hatred engender anger and hatred. Simply easing or stopping the terrible waste of mistrust would transform prospects for many millions of people. We desperately need to find ways of doing this. Then there are the positive benefits. Understanding the real nature of human wealth – all those dimensions of purpose, ‘politics’ and emotion as well as money and material comfort – means we can start being human again; human in the way we think, and act. What’s more, many of these intangible benefits won’t cost a penny. They’re there for the taking, if only we puts our minds to it.
    But there’s more, because trust is also an economic superpower in its own right. In the pages that follow we will show conclusively that material and financial riches are also dependent on trust. In fact, we will argue the case for going one step further. We will say that material and financial riches are a by-product of trust: the visible fruits of invisible, intangible human exchange. Once you understand that sustainable cash flows are a by-product of sustainable trust flows, your understanding of what makes a successful business is transformed.
    Separately, each of these three fruits – reducing the waste of conflict, unleashing the potential intrinsic benefits of human exchange, and energising the sustainable creation of material wealth – are massive in their own right. Put them together and they represent a vast new continent of opportunity.
    As we said, this book is addressed to entrepreneurs and system  innovation revolutionaries. Wherever you happen to be, whatever the change you want to make is, the principles explored in this book apply. The wish to change and the will to change are not the same as being able to change successfully. For that you need to understand your territory. You will need new Maps

    0.1 Has a continental or worldwide search solutions on job creation that can be replicated across communities been organised before this EU launch of Nov 2011?
    While alumni of entrepreneurial economics have always valued job creation searches- we know of no clear evidence that this has been top of mind in the way that continental-wide government has operated since 1984 even though it was scripted by The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant as the number 1 question the first net generation would need to mediate if sustainable futures and humanity's most needed millennium goals are to be served
    what's different about nov 2011 is 4 top directorates of the EU have nailed their future reputation to this search -more

    The End of the EU part 1 http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/2012/06/paul-krugman-on-europe-doing-the-unthinkable.html

    TRANSCRIPT: 'The Unthinkable'
    Video above.

    Tom Ashbrook: You're talking about, writing about the end of the EU, the end of the common currency.

    Paul Krugman: it's unthinkable except that continuing down the current path is unthinkable. Spain is actually the epicenter. The Spanish government did nothing wrong. Spain was running a budget surplus before the crisis. It had low levels of debt. But it had a monstrous housing bubble, as did a lot of places, largely financed by the way by German banks which were lending to Spanish banks, which then lent on. And when the housing bubble burst you were left with a severe, extremely severe recession, and so the answer has been government austerity which just makes the slump deeper.

    The alternatives to a breakup of the euro have to be Europe-wide solutions. And so the solution, if there is one, involves accepting a higher rate of inflation for Europe as a whole and that particularly means higher inflation in Germany.
    --Paul Krugman

    What are Spain's alternatives here? Well, if they still had their currency, their own currency, the answer would be devalue, let the peseta drop, Spanish exports would become a lot more competitive, they'd be well on their way to recovery. They don't have their own currency, so people are saying: Well, you have to do all this stuff to stay within the Euro. At some point you say: Well, you know if your answer to our problem is just ever more suffering, ever more you know... 25 percent, 50 percent youth unemployment. If that's your notion of a solution, then maybe although it would be a very terrible thing to have the Euro breakup, maybe that's better than what we're doing. So that's becoming a real possibility now.

    The alternatives to a breakup of the euro have to be Europe-wide solutions. And so the solution, if there is one, involves accepting a higher rate of inflation for Europe as a whole and that particularly means higher inflation in Germany. Talk to the Germans about this and of course they go crazy, but you have to say to them: What is your answer? What you're doing right now is just a path to the collapse of the euro with enormous damage and radicalization and a lot of things that you don't want to see happen in Europe happening.

    TA: If the Germans can't take their foot off the brakes, they're just intrinsically and against history and everything else, Weimar, if they can't do it, what happens?

    PK: Then Europe breaks up and... No, I mean I think it's that stark. It really is, it really is that extreme because you know it's one of those things, you can't be saying that, but then you say: Well, let's talk this through. You know, let's as it said in the original edition of the Godfather - Let us reason together. Right? What are the ways that this can work out? And the current path is not one that can work out.

    It's like an irresistible force hitting an immovable object. On the one hand it's unthinkable that they'll allow the euro to fail because the euro is a terribly important thing, it's not terribly important economically, it would have been better off if they'd, if they had never done it, but now that it has been done, for it to fail is a defeat for the European project, the whole project of bringing peace, democracy, integration to a continent with a terrible history. So it's unthinkable that they'll allow it to fail, but it's also unthinkable that the Germans will accept moderate inflation which is the only solution any of us have been able to come up with. So one of two impossible things is going to happen. Your bet.
