ALL THE WORLDS A STAGE With due respect to William Shakespeare:
All the world’s a stage, –YES PLEASE ... a poor player that struts and frets his hour and then is heard
no more – NO THANKS
Which are the 2 most important meetings that people will ever convene?
Time will tell. However sustainability’s globe will probably look back for the first most
important meeting ever convened to the city of Oslo towards the end of 2006. Yes We Can choose maps to navigate around
this occasion as marking a magic moment in humanity’s productivity and creativity – the turning point in the way
the overall system design of globalization’s free markets spin from exponentially destroying sustainability to exponentially
Nobel Prizes for peace always make for inspiring celebrations –ones that end years, however dismal, on a note that there is hope.
Are you and us right to dream that one day peace will propose to economics, and a hi-trust marriage will be the familial reconciliation?
The 2006 Nobel Prize award was peculiarly significant for future leadership as it planted a transformation of
its world stage in two ways. First, it was awarded in two halves. Second, both halves believed that the sustainability of
the world’s networking societies and economies could entrepreneurially collaborate in open sourcing future interactions
of knowledge that multiplies value in use.
New media can be defined as composed of the communal kind where celebration
and world famous celebrity-making need no longer be publicly limited to a process of global audiences clapping hands as passive
spectators to history’s solo performances.
A TALE OF 2 CAPITALISMS
One half of the Nobel
prize was awarded to 7 million women. Illiterate as their beginnings had been they demonstrate that every human being is born
with creativity inside. The human capacity that can be income generating and through which people make more jobs than Information
Technology takes. They have invested in a free market exchange sharing knowledge openly across a network of 125000 hubs. This
channels how hundreds of replicable franchises are banked together as “social business system designs” –
transparent mathematical proof that mapping microeconomic models compounds 10 times more economic consequences for communities.
What extraordinary good news for 21st Century humanity to integrate around contrasted with what macroeconomists
has spun around globalization, which started ironically in 1984 the year that George Orwell had made famous in his future
warnings scenario. When technology makes the globe more connected that separated please, don’t fall into the poverty
trap and the compound risks of earth being superpowered over by big brother capitalism. To be, lets collaboratively and naturally
web the whole truth of what a worldwide spins when empowered by little sister capitalism.
In practical terms our
7 million heroines – and world class female investors in sustainability - already offer us benchmarks for freeing 3
global market sectors: banking, clean energy and mobilizing digital media around transparently increasing the productivity
of the poorest communities instead of ramping up consumption bubbles out of the world’s biggest capitals. As we know
from the close of the Zeroes, humanity needs to step back from being valued by wall street’s biggest systems and the
pressures of making individual tigers macroeconomic gods.
MAN WHO DARES US TO MULTIPLY MICRO 1000 TIMES TO SCALE
To Muhammad Yunus, December 2006 was not just a wonderful prize but his lifetime’s
opportunity to transform beyond being seen as only a navigator of micro worlds. He had satred a journy intent on demonstrating
the value multipliers of collaboration partners in sustainability being our generatins greartes innovation advantage. This
much we know he could see by December 2006 thanks to the micro bank of 7 million women’s social business systems, Nobel
and the first Global Grameen branding partnership Grameen Danone.
While 2007-2009 proved to be the bleakest years ever financially recorded in NW Capital Cities, social business networkers
linking in with YUnUS were exploring new freedoms and happinesses. Dr Yunus spent 1997 preparing a book on social business 1.0 and 40 city world your for 2008.
By the summer of 2008, Nobel made a remarkable extension of their world stage endorsing Dhaka and its youth
networkers in particular as en route to every sustainability city. They opened the Nobel museum inside the bank for the poor
and the head judge of the peace panel celebrated this launch with a speech shared by 1000 Bangladeshi youth. Late 2008 was
to see one of the first great boardgames of collaboration entrepreneurs start to unite players – the goal end nurseless
villages – the model partnering form Grameen Nurse Institute
By November 2009, it was time to join 2 celebrations Germany’s 20th
fall of the wall and Global Grameen’s launch of 12 collaboration partnerships. This book is one way to explore the extraordinary
invitations 100 first alumni of Global Grameen at Volkswagen’s Autostadt in Wolfsburg – can we, shall we collaborate
through the 2010s to multiply grameen’s micro social business system 1000 times beyond its current 7 million members
so that 7 billion people know how to play microeconomics sustainability’s games?

HOW DID GANDHI CREATE HIS JOB AS THE 20TH CENTURY NUMBER ! LEADER OF PEACEFUL NATIONAL ECONOMY REVOLUTION
As global village Scots, we report this from the viewpoint of my maternal grandfather - a fellow Bar of London Barrister whose job as chief justoce
of the Mumbai region mainly involved 25 years of arbitration with Mahatma Gandhi. Of course culturally there are many far
more exciting local reports (tell us if you have one to post below email@example.com) Gandhi didnt see anything he
wanted to study in his home region of India or Mumbai its main capital. So he talked his families into funding him to study
law at the Bar of London. When he returned to Mumbai , there was no work for Indians that matched his qualificiations so some
expatriates in South Africa invited him to become their number 1 lawyer. Gandhi began sailing through the triad of Mumbai,
Durban and London. On one occasion he was marooned in London just as World War 1 started- charicteristically the then 45-year
old gandhi devoted himself to months of being a paramedic . On a much earlier home-trip he started leafletting stories of
how few real livelihood opportunities Empire left locals in both South and Eastern hemispheres, and a local newspaper asked
him to write an article. This got seen by the Raj authorities "reutered/telegrammed" back to London and South Africa
- what's this young person up to? That's how Gandhi started to become worldwide networked -linking in his social networks
as a bar of london student, a lawyer in south africa, and a reporter in India. Also his many sailings started to become YouthCreativeLabs
where disciples could enjoy several weeks of tutoring,and pitch entrepreneurial ideas. However, it wasnt until Gandhi was
nearly 40 that he had a system-transforming AHA "whole truth" moment "Satyagraha" - when he was thrown
out of a first class carriage of a south african train for having the wrong color skin. He concluded his profession- ruling
with British Imperial Law - was the main conflict with the future freedoms and happiness of 99% of the peoples (in africa
and india). His plan which he spent the scond half of his life on - was plant a totally new education system from kindergarten
up to university and once a first generation had graduated invite them to peace marches (eg to collect salt fom the sea- something
the British salt manufacturing monopoly banned) and other demonstrations to massively free human interest stories which by
now the EMpire's media and my grandad were being ordered to censor. The ending was happy in 2 ways and sad in another. Maria
Montessori joined in Gandhi's education revolution - which has been sustained in such wonderful schools as Lucknow India and 40000 village schools network in Bangladesh. Also joyfully my grandfathers last job was to write up the legalese of India's Independence. Sadly Gandhi was assasinated
partly before he wanted the whole continent to remain united not to be split into India and what became West and East Pakistan
(the latter finally becomg free as Bangaldesh in 1971).
Is this story relevant today. Why yes! The Mandela
Elders have been supporting what is so far a 15 year effort to free educational systems around missing curricula of youth
entrepreneurship. #2020now aims to help south african youth co-create a million jobs. Could such a curriculum be of massive open online value to the worldwide youth Diaspora and twin capitals of youth jobs summits ?
Prime Minister Gordon Brown: Hello How are you, what
Muhammad Yunus: It’s a pleasure
PM :It’s good to see you
(They Shake Hands)
Scene 2 Muhammad Yunus Introduces himself to the camera from the heart of 10 Downing Street
I am Muhammad Yunus from Bangladesh with Grameen bank. We lend money to extremely
poor people for income generating activities. I am suggesting that Africa needs a lot of microfinance programs
– tiny loans 30 dollar, 45 dollar 100 dollar – and paid back in weekly installments. It doesn’t need any
collateral. It doesn’t need any lawyers into it but the repayment rate is very high: 98% or 99%.
Microfinance is very important because it allows
people to bring out their own initiative, bring out their own capability. And they can move on their own speed to cerate income,
to get out of poverty. And people in Africa are very enterprising people, particularly women. Microfinance
focuses on women. Today in Bangladesh within Grameen Bank we have 7.5 million borrowers a- 97% of them women. The Prime Minister
is very much aware of it; very supportative of it. So we will discuss how to make it happen in Africa
Scene 3 PM and Dr Yunus sitting round a cup of tea
PM There is so much goodwill to the work you have been
doing, and it is so important
Scene 4After tea:
Muhammad Yunus denouement
At the same time, we will be
discussing another concept – the social business :business to do good to people -(show
copy of Dr Yunus new bestselling book Creating a World Without Poverty- Social Business, The Future of Capitalism ).This is business where you aim at the social objectives, not for making money for yourself. You cover your cost, make
profit but the profit doesn’t go to investors or outsiders but stays with the company to achieve the goal that you set
out to help achieve or lead.
Institute Yunus has been described by BusinessWeek as one of the "greatest entrepreneurs of all time."
He received a bachelor's degree and a master's degree from the University of Dhaka and a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University.

What Everybody Needs to Know First About Economics
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
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 .
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)
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
