Back in 1972 dad ( Norman Macrae) and I first saw students experimenting with early digital networks. Dad thought this would be the greatest economic freedom ever - even greater than the industrial revolution's world of extracting carbon energy, Critically true knowlege multiplies values in use promising multi-win model of Economic Abundancy IF & ONLY IF we make fit investments in net generation and digital's open societies http://www.scoop.it/t/ineteconomics . Moblise around the rising exponential opportunity to free a borderless world of global villages from info-transmission cost of distance. OPEN everything but micro-up, as nature's system desiigns do. Recall Einstein proved every time man's over standardised science runs out of space, innovate by mapping at a more micro level of interaction.
Dad spent the rest of his life debating Entrepreneuial Revolution - with: readers of The Economist, Muhammad Yunus at dad's last public birthday 2008, and since his death in 2010 at events we co-host to advance the curriculum of pro-youth economics and pro-youth education. Pictured is celebration fromThe Economist boardroom 2010. We'e looking for the top 50 9-minute transcripts of curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution http://normanmacrae.ning.com/forum/topics/open-source-transcripting-of-curriculum-year-42-the-economist-s guided by dad's 7 wonders ER thinkpad - 7 trillion dollar markets whose purposes we need to free the sustainabiliy of youth around first http://www.scoop.it/t/purpose-by-chris-macrae
With almost every idea dad wrote about, some big power sponsored academics to take the idea and reverse its pro-youth meaning. Dad hoped his open eucation & open society fiends would have the last laugh by making Entrepreneur the most celebrated word in the pro-youth economic vocabulary. You know the French origin of the E-word refers to: will society design a better system when it has just been forced to guillotine the heads of the few who are monopolising all productive assets?
By 1984 dad's book on net generation 1984-2024 was one of first to argue for collaboration millennium goal of ending poverty - not just on moral grounds. As father wrote: by 2000s, man's greatest compound risk will be seen to be the discrepancy of incomes and expectations of rich and poor nations. Dad scripted a role for the BBC (and all world service publicly owned media) to help solve the challenge of searchnig for 30000 open microfranchises which we are now dangeously behind mediating.
2013 is 170th year since James Wilson founded The Economist to mediate the end of hunger and the end of capital abuse of youth. Plus ca change ... To Be Or Not To Be
