I have just heard from zasheem that he is finishing copy for issue 2 of journal of social bsuiness. I was wondering if you could contribute a short piece announcing why celebrating millennium goals is so important -as well as social business day 2011 as the network and place to do it with.
If there are any ongoing social actions - perhaps linking to which yunus universities or other partners who have a millennium goals led project.
Having something that puts youth and millennium goals into early issue of the journal is important as its surprising how few people could mention all the goals - let alone map how they are connected by grassroots networks of credit as a human right
Big goals are one of the few startegic approaches I believe in most. I must try some time to get back in touch with British economist James Collins who tried to redesign economics and innovation around Big Hairy Audaciious Goals

Sunday, May 22, 2011what would world of youth & yunus miss if journal of social business did not exist
5:57 am edt
we encourage debates of this sort at www.youthandyunus.com
and wherever a partner has a clear positive future compond benefit to yunus (ie networking progress towards youth and his 2010s goals) it should be able to describe what this is
eg the core reporting questions of any partner like danone, credit agricole, youth employment division of french govrnment are
1 what would yunus uniquely miss connecting with future if this partner did not exist?
related questions are:
2 what does partner get that economically sustains partners realtionship with yunus
both 1 and 2 can also note multiplier impacts of collaborating with other compatible partners of yunus which is what makes france social bus capital iof world
3 also if advantage of this partnership is currently operating in a few parts of the world, does the parner want to be contacted by friends of yunus who would like that partner's impact happening in other places or is up to those friends to find a parallel way to deliver those benefits to the other places?
note : since we are a journal we are not interested in puffery but trabnsparency of actual benefits and win-win-wins being served
if you agree this is the purpose of the journal - how do we accelerate its presence - should we write up a paper on french partners as an illustration - what help do you need to quickly have the best list of the above kind
Wednesday, February 16, 2011identifying 3000 leaders who support 2010s as youths most exciting decade
4:51 pm est
My dad, norman macrae, worked all his life at The Economist to show that the joy of economics invests in advancing youth's opportunities. Moreover, as first journalist of internet in 1984 - as well trademark cheerleader of entrepreneurial revolutIon - he deckared the net generation's purpose to unite economics round ending poverty. He foresaw Moores law of annual doubling moving from silicon capability to what digitally interconnecting people selectively networked to action learn first. Yes We Can vibrantly empower community everywhere. In his final years it was natural that Norman Macrae would see Dr Yunus as the net genration's most connected leader in open soircing 3000 global vilage solutions to humanity's most pressing needs. He declared that his estate would provide social business loans launching the joyous economics of the journal of social business. Specifically, these would provide for 3000 world leaders celebrating the exciting 2010s with dr yunus and the net generation. Help us identify which 3000 leaders should see the journal first and how to unite round leaders that join in goal-oriented economic purposes selected by youth.

hayek is the person dad would link to as one of the most sensible reformers of the awful system of letting governments manage printing of currency http://www.worldeconomist.net/2010.09.01_arch.html#12841734686676:41 pm edt
The late great Cambridge educated Norman Macrae, former Deputy Editor of The Economist reflected on the first 100 “Hobart Papers” published by The Institute of Economic Affairs. Sound Money got his attention:
can we all please hub round the journal in the spirit of the last chapter of dr yunus book; a spirit which must determine not only type of content, but style of content and why academics are not the first audience that a journal of most exciting decade for social action entrepreneurs to free market to
*** for youth this is the journal of their most exciting decade and so their responsibility to change how leaders use media - since the economics as well as social consequences of global media is predominantly driven by youth
***for economists and indeed all the most expensive professionals and professors in the world this is their "microeconomics" pathway to redemption - making economics the practice of the more communally economical not the less as global macroeconomics has vicuously spiraled it
Jul 31, 2007 ... People power in support of the leadership of developing countries. ..... VIDEO AND AUDIO NEWS. Prime Minister Gordon Brown addresses the UN ...
***for dr yunus it is is confirmation that yes we can - as his system designs provide the simplest benchmarks and community empowerment to unite our race to poverty museums, and to make sure technology is microentrepeneurially used everywhere to create more jobs than it takes; of course in every sustainability hub and citizen lab - from 60 villager centres up - SB is people power's core model of privatisation and or what the world's most daring government = "radical britain" now need communties to network innovation and confluct resolution through http://www.youtube.com/safebanks
I am developing an open research process to help us search out which top rank economists and broadcast media anchors deserve their ranking. more soon

Thursday, April 15, 2010Connections with decade's research of Intangibles Crisis Union
Goodwill (along with related critical values including transparency and sustainability) is being everywhere destroyed in large corporations even though its the largest asset in service or knowlege economes. The crisis is caused by goodwill being a systemic dynamic, and thus mathematically one whose correct measurement form would be understanding what exponential leadership trajectory an organisation is spinning (up or down) not a number. It is perfectly possible to know what exponential a corporation is spinning because most of goodwill is built through relationshop quelity and in a bayesian sense is already invested in to what will happen next.2:23 pm edt
we go back to year 2000, margaret blair then at georgetown law school chaired a report on intangibles crisis - published by brookings as "unseen wealth" http://www.brookings.edu/press/Books/2001/unseen_wealth_book.aspx - it concluded that there is a missing audit without which we will compound crashes unseen in every global market
she presented the results to the incoming bush administration in quarter 1 of 2001; had all funds stopped and told me she was going to leave the subject to the European Union
It spent 3 years developing similar research only to find its funds cut - the last time I met the head of intangibles research funds in Brussels he said chris it would need 3 european enrons crashing in
one year before the people get the politcians interested in this again http://yunusforum.net/?p=80
