According to General Theory of Keynes:  increasingly only economics rules the world;

This begs the question which of two opposite ways round do people want globalisation to rule:

  • Top Down: Big gets bigger; speculative get more speculative, bubble economies like that Wall Street ended 2000s with
  • Bottom Up: Empowering purpose, sustaining community, investing in next generation, preventing risk from compounding, multiplying knowhow by bringing down degrees of sepration on life critical issues  

    leaves 2 opposite system round choices : the dismal macroeconomics of wall street, or the joyous microeconomics of sustainability exponentials rising- which future do you wish to globalise around your children's children?

  •   Out of London and around the world help build the largest investment fund investing in the net generation. Currently we are searching for correspondents examining how to empower increased productivity of youth (and most exciting goals for 2020) across partnership maps like:

    Danone Communities
    Huge amount of information at
    To summarise

    this is the one fund (known to us anywhere in teh world)  that public (french) can actually buy
    into in a quasi- unit trust form ; currently by frech law it is structured as 90% fized interest savings and 10% investments in social businesses

    about 10 social business have been invested in

    while there is no dividend, in this fund if there is an equity gain, investirs may share in that.

    The Green Children Fund- as far as we know this is no longer colecting for Yunus. During the 18 months or so after Yunsu Nobel Prize, its issue of the hit single you can hear me now completed what was the most successful funding by 2 young people (emerging pop stars) ...this was assigned to the grameen eye clinic replicationin bangaldesh - the first sustainable social business model led by Yunus in Bangaldesh since 2005 (the time when he started to clarify social business modeling explicitly as opposed to being the way he preffered to launch divusins of graneen) which has successfully opened several branches. The GreenChildren have over 5 million views on youtube.

    Yunus Japan funds seem to have been bequested by one or 2 private philantropists. They have been used to help Kyushu be the one permanent university partner that Yunus has which helps scale significant projects - it works very closely with all Japanese aid networks and converges technological inputs.

    If you believe there are other universities that have scaled and converged projects of the same significance as Kyushu we welcome news

    News from Grameen Scotland: Recently Yunus appointement as Chancellor of Glasgow Caledonian has gravitated more permanence to its impacts resulting in the launch of -although this is mainly a microcredit fund we will track its impacts as a fund that can be monitiored fro scratch

    Glasgow Caledonian is a founding player in one of the most significant new social businesses- the Grameen Nursing College. However as multiple partners supply different contributions this doesn not appear to have a unified fund as such

    for me its joyfully simple mathematicially if not politically

    yunus and his team and 8 million women have since 1976 done more than any other group of people to discover -and open source - 3 of the 4 missing pieces of human sustainability IF that is what we are to locally invest globalisation in -and as all the economists I Know have mainly agreed since 1984 the 2010s is the last decade to make that choice

    3 of 4 maps of economics of human sustainability 

    1) Ten times more economic community models prooftested since 1976 

    2) internet generation use of tech of poor and job creation explored wonderfully since 1996 

    3) Partnerships with the world;s most resourced in potentially greatest purposes their sectors (such as milk banking chemicals water ..) could sustain . These are not just public private sector partnerships but mass mediated by youthful celebrations

    MISSING PIECE 4 -Changing Over-Government 
    change constitutions of government, professions and media from powering over to empowering ; from boundaries rules world to boundaries being mapped as where biggest risks lurk unless higher order of transparency and goodwill multiuplying is coded the way Einstein first noted to be the ultimate change world challenge of Gandhi's end of empire rule over India 

    its this missing system that is a worldwide matter not an internal one- and as disastrous timing would have it: right now there isn't a national congress anywhere that which will help the youth and all of us debate the consequence of spinning the first worldwide generation

    good news decade - 2010s Net Generation

    Every good news medium of joyful economics which we build to celebrate the life time knowledge multipliers of dr yunus and grassroots Bangladesh networking seems to me to involve a collaboration entrepreneur search for purpose-sustaining reporting teams. For example joyful social business energy reporting needs identification of the same worldwide reporting team be its channel focus that of a sub-editorial board of the journal of social business or the reporters that update short good news content reports interactively. This involves a new worldwide reporting system geared to hit googles headlines with exciting news which dr yunus specified last week -and which Naila can tell you more about as Grameen Solutions rapidly prototypes a "white box" that can be globally an locally replicated.

    Hossain Zillur Rahman, centre, former caretaker government adviser, launches the Journal of Social Business at National Press Club in Dhaka yesterday. Baqui Khalily, left, professor of finance at Dhaka University, and Zasheem Ahmed, right, managing editor of the journal, are also seen.

    Out of London,- 50 people met in The Economist boardroom in November - to discuss inter alia how to target europe's dormant bank accounts as potential social business funding of the youths exciting 2010s  and so worldwide as we celebrate yunus, olympics as queen elizabeths greatest celebration and Euroroyal families sustainability passions for their peoples' jobs, youth empowerment and all the best news of sustainability world in the next 18 months-  we invite your ideas on collaborations geared to evolving the Yunus Fund to be the biggest investment fund in the net generation and heroic 2020 goals

    It seems the first structural mediation question entrepreneurial revolutionaries and youth need to ask is : what are the top 10 development streams we need to connect expert social business reporters/analysts on?  Last February 3000 young people in paris -mainly fans of Yunus and Danone Communities - watched the 8 movie -whatif newsrooms like the BBC were competent at Social Business analysis istead of wall street groupthink. This reminded me of a social action commitment 50 of us made at a hub meeting in 2005 to call for the closing of the BBC if it didnt free the voivce of sustainabiloity analysts by summer olumpics 2012. As SB book 2 says The Time is Now.


    example 1 dfid will spend £250m per year for bangladesh until 2015 : I believe we want to ensure that correspondents questioning DFID, JICA and USAID dont just transform towards private-public sector partnerships that inspired by Yunus and led by Obama-Billary  Presidential Summits of E they have announced as their big news of recent months but partnerships in which youth (the colaborative productivity of the net generation)  are the core mediators

    what other 9 examples do you suggest we need to priortise search of reporting teams on?

    It would be great if we could put a team (forming different editorial sections as you would in a worldwide newspaper) on various content dimensions of how only yunus good news can connect net generation's exciting 2010s in urgent multi-win project maps across global villages

    as well as sources reporting advances connecting The Yunus Fund to millennium goals greatest races

    1 its anne duffills job to search out for the first 100 youth franchsies that are needed across europe (starting UK) as way of investing dormant accounts in social business- she already links in a lot of the bbc realtity tv games of entre4preneurship - eg dragons dens, jamie oliver, and soon

    2 we dont yet know zoe well enough in australia but I have a belief that the 10000 girl program - content on what do young women need to know about personal finace to be in control of their lives needs to replicate everywhere

    3,4 we already have the 2 outstanding yunus youth lens of monica's and out of paris -

    5 chris temple and mficonnect founders are starting a viral competition on if you clould show yunus round SB in your capiotal what woiuld you be proudest of guiding him to first

    6 sarah butler-sloss and prince charles are natural searched for "obama's 5 million green jobs" as well as asia pacific century being zero carbon zero nuclear led

    meanwhile the huge philanthropies of sarah's father and uncle are mainly uk youth-community; I would say that queen ez;izabeth's 2 life missions are UK youth-communities and worldwoide sustainability commonwelath

    so all these things are what 21st C world service bnest news can be about - see no reason why this should not become the number 1 good news action portal of exciting 2010s

    what's your wondrous good news foci?7 for icing on the cake google's africa program and lesley johannesburg are befriending each other as well as both inspired by youths number 1 mobile microcredit jamii bora (the main good news story queen sofia of spain and sam of microcreditsummit have been asking to delvelop content news on these last 2 years); and in my meeting with yu8nus last week he said getting funds foir africa is now prime time, as one would hope it6 will be to the future of obamas mission in life

    jamibora and brac are also sharing news on how to develop community radio station which presumably will have their own good news feeds we can select from

    I would like to see a future bbc in which 25% of evey main news cast was on good news and youth exciting 2010s races to goals- indeed I am completeing 7 yeras of arguing the bbc shopuld be closed if it can integrate this into its caharter as number 1 social busienss public broadcaster

    the only thing  could stop all this empowerment would be a character out of a shakespearan tragedy  ascending to superpower destroying yunus freedom of voice --- if we can make sure our "chatham house" event gets elders looking out for all mafia and badwill linkins to any such transparency disaster , we can hopefully collaborate in covering each other's back; on and off I have worked with jeff on huge investment projects where covering each other's back was needed and he and anne duffill are now almost geographic neighbours

    Alibaba founder Jack Ma unveils ambitious plan

    Mission: 100 million new jobs

    By Dana McCauley

    He already runs the world's biggest online shopping company, but Alibaba founder Jack Ma is not satisfied.

    The Chinese billionaire has unveiled an even more ambitious plan to expand the company's reach across the globe, creating 100 million new jobs and transforming the global economy to create a more equitable world.

    It may sound pie-in-the-sky, but the goal forms part of mission statement of the US$261 billion company's visionary executive chairman.

    In a letter to shareholders, Ma outlined Alibaba's achievements of the past financial year - including a gross merchandise turnover of more than $195 billion (1 trillion RMB), an "unprecedented" figure - before looking to the future.

    "We have more than 430 million annual active buyers, which means one out of every three individuals in China has made a purchase on our retail marketplaces," Ma wrote.

    But, he said, while proud of Alibaba's online shopping achievements, "we want to do far more", saying that the benefits of globalisation had not been spread evenly, but that "digital disruption will bring us closer to a level playing field for young people and small businesses".

    "We are not merely trying to shift buy/sell transactions from offline to online, nor are we changing conventional digital marketing models to squeeze out a little additional profit," he wrote.

    "We are working to create the fundamental digital and physical infrastructure for the future of commerce, which includes marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing, big data and a host of other fields."

    The Alibaba group of companies, founded in 1999, accounts for 60 per cent of all Chinese online sales, and this year overtook Walmart as the world's largest retailer.


    It has made Ma the second richest man in Asia, with a net worth of US$28.5 billion.


    It's through cloud computing that Alibaba aims to expand its reach, and the company has been investing in the technology as part of a strategy that sees shoppers' data as the contemporary equivalent of mineral riches.

    "Over the next 30 years, with computing power as the new 'technology breakthrough' and data as the new 'natural resource,' the landscape of retail, financial services, manufacturing and entertainment will be transformed," Ma wrote, forecasting a decades-long period of transformation.

    "The internet revolution is a historical inflection point, much like when electricity was introduced, and it may have an even greater impact," he predicted.

    Alibaba's mission, he said, was to "empower merchants with the ability to transform and upgrade their businesses for the future" and "help companies all over the world to grow".

    "We believe, the commerce infrastructure we have created in China - marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing and big data, all working in concert - can be applied on a global scale to lift up small and medium businesses and ordinary consumers around the world."

    Eight years after launching, Alibaba Cloud hosts 35 per cent of Chinese websites, while delivering cloud computing and big data services.


    Ma said Alibaba was constantly adapting to the changing e-commerce environment, as staying at the forefront of innovation was key to its continued success.

    "In the coming years, we anticipate the birth of a re-imagined retail industry driven by the integration of online, offline, logistics and data across a single value chain," he said.

    "With e-commerce itself rapidly becoming a "traditional business," pure e-commerce players will soon face tremendous challenges."

    A shift to mobile revenue was one such change, he said, with mobile climbing from a single-digit percentage to three-years of total revenue from Alibaba's Chinese retail marketplaces, in the space of two years.

    "This is why we are adapting, and it's why we strive to play a major role in the advancement of this new economic environment," Ma said.

    Innovations like Alibaba's Qianniu app, which helps online businesses to improve sales and marketing while enhancing efficiency, were an example of the type of projects the company aimed to focus on.

    "In 20 years, we hope to serve two billion consumers around the world, empower 10 million profitable businesses and create 100 million jobs," Ma said, adding: "This will be an even more difficult journey than the one behind us."

    LISTEN : Newstalk ZB Political Editor Barry Soper speaks to Andrew Dickens on KPMG Early Edition

    Mr Ma - who's worth around $50 billion - met with John Key in Beijing late yesterday. He made his money through founding the online commerce platform Ali Baba.

    Standing alongside the Prime Minister, he heaped praise on the country, which he says is loved by many Chinese.

    "At least 20 of my colleagues retired from Ali Baba. They're all very young, in their 40s, they all go to New Zealand."

    "I asked what they do apart from the golf and green things and they say it's the people there."

    It wasn't all social, with the Chinese billionaire also talking business.

    Jack Ma told the entrepreneurs luncheon Kiwi businesspeople find it difficult to access the Chinese market.

    Mr Ma said he wants to make that easier with his multi-platform organisation.

    "We have Ali Baba University. We would either have courses in New Zealand or invite the entrepreneurs in New Zealand to stay in China for two weeks for training."

    "The second is that we're going to open an Ali Baba business embassy next year in New Zealand."

    John Key is in China meeting business and political leaders.



    Innovation "Made in China" - The Case of Alibaba and the role of Net-based Small Business

    Innovation is a key driver for economic development and social progress and small business is one of the best ways for people to express their willingness and capability to innovate.  Pervasive business ownership has, therefore, been the foundation in many societies for the continued improvement of people’s economic wellbeing. In the People’ Republic of China, however, private business ownership was prohibited between 1957 and 1978. Productive innovations were extremely restricted and as a consequence, China’s economy was on the verge of collapse by the end of 1978. The Chinese people had suffered a historic setback.

    Alibaba’s growth, driven by unleashing grassroots entrepreneurship, has become an exemplar of China’s innovation in the 21st century.  Started by 18 young people in 1999, Alibaba has grown into a giant global internet platform and has made many invaluable contributions to China’s progress. Highlighting the importance of pervasive small business ownership in unleashing grassroots innovation and improving economic wellbeing, Professor Lowrey will discuss Alibaba’s innovative strategies and explain the economic theory behind its inspiring success.

    Founder of Ali Baba commits his work for Chinese on internet to generate 100 million microentrepreneur jobs in 2010s - who else would you vote at the centre of 100 million job creation leagues?
    =====================update sumer 2016:
    unlike oiher years spent with bangaldeshi inspired youth, i spent 2015-2016 mainly with a class of chinese female students - what brilliant minds and tirelss sources of human energy - i hope this summary of why the whole world can celebrate what jack ma is doing is near to the mark - but as always look forward to editing any errors which are mine alone washington dc text 240 316 8157
    was english language tutoring

    In 1995 he was sent to the usa on an exchange mission and encountered the worldwideweb - then unknown in China. He determined the www would be the biggest job creating innovation of his (or his generations) life and hopefully of every Chinese entrepreneur he could valuably link into.

    Over the next 15 years his wizard coding teams went from something that was little more than an electronic yellow pages for small businesses to conceiving sustainability generation's 2 greatest retailing platforms china or the world may ever have seen..

    the taobao platform is the most valuable job creating concept retailers have ever mediated because it reverses the western trend of globalisiation of retailers, bankers and big corporations squeezing out local and small enterprises from having a market; how taobao did that is an extraordinarily detailed story but note how Ma was concerned to ensure even the most cut-off of Chinese villagers could start up on tao bao (rural ecommerce is one of the innovations that Ma has led the www purpose to linkin)

    His other mall was pitched at the more usual high cost fashions of big global merchandisers. Because of complex property laws in chinese cities, most expensive retailers are not much of a joy to shop in. So ali baba created a lifestyle -eg celebrate singles day 11/11 shopping virtually rather than the physically exhausting interaction in The West's biggest shopping days of the year)

    SO 365/24/7 consumers of ali baba can choose who they value developing most with their purchasing power as well as searching merchandise with global image or local cultural joy

    Alibaba has become china's and probably the word's largest retailing channel. It does this with next to no merchandise but brilliant coding so that every store front on its platforms delivers with equal reliability. Hunting out exactly how Ma forms partnerships so that big data analysis benefits the smallest enterprises and most local consumers ought to be a job of whomever is sustainability goals greatest economist.

    Intriguingly to ensure he could compete with the chinese internet companies that raced to co-create the www that Ma had opened space for in china, Ma IPO'd Alibaba through a process 2010-2015 while developing his secret sustainability weapon under private ownership. AlIpay is china's number 1 financial inclusion delivery system and maybe global youth most humanly productive coding achievement to date.

    Comparing china's top 10 internet properties with the west's is very interesting. Are the consuming behaviours on ali baba more sustainable than those on amazon or ebay or paypal? Are the learnng behaviours on baidu more sustaining of youth than on google or coursera or microsoft's linkedin. Time will tell but note how speaking english, chinese and coding (as well as mother tongue) are probably what educators anywhere on planet earth should NOW be most valuing their global youth's future freedom to thrive entrepreneurially around.
