All branches of my family and friends have been questioning techforgood over 70 years now- by which we mean what dad with Economist audiences of 1970s first coined as entrepreneurial revolution: every next child flourishing because every community being invested in through servant leaders and SME innovators- if that's your kind of collaboration please get in touch chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk MA Stats DAMTP Corpus Christi Cambridge -- currently in Wash DC & Glasgow; as Scots missionaries my parents who served in world war 2 hoped that was the end of tech for the few instead of tech and teach for all.. we're also prepping June 2023 Glasgow as 265th moral sentiments summit on purposes of markets and engineering. WE see 2020s web3 alumni as best chance to cure tragedies of fake media, AND celebrate millennials as first Sustainability Gen -huge thanks to ed3dao.com , SDGmetaverseprize.org, NFTSdgs.com and other benchmarks at worldclassdaos.com - and of course mathematicians like Satoshi since 2008WHY 163? London Scot James Wilson having founded The Economist in 1843, convinced Queen Victoria to launch commonwealth round a bank by and for the quarter of peoples on the India subcontinent. 163 year ago: she told him to go create Charter Bank; arriving in Calcutta 1860 Wilson died within 9 months of diarrhea. Local peoples had to wait another 112+ years until a womens bank was launched by Fazle Abed making end of diarrhea by oral rehydration one of its first educational purposes My father Norman was very lucky. He survived world war 2 as a teenage navigator allied bomber command Burma. Six years later he met V Neuman at Princeton who unluckily only had 6 years left due to cancer from nuclear bombsd. Neuman asked dad will train economist jouranlits to ask the most valuable question in the world: what goods will people do with 100 tukes more etch every decade 1930s to 2020s. Dad and numann had plenty of exambples of bads caused by rapid tech. I was born the same year 1951. To be honest it took me really long time to start to understand dad's next question about what he called peoples entrepreneurial revolution. But he made it clear that community griunded finacing and valuation of tecahers would be make or braeak to 21st c life. So lets start there

back from future history 2025-1951

 When my Dad met Von Neumann in 1951, their experience of first half of 20th c had been quite dismal - dad had spent his last days as a teenage navigator allied bomber command Burma; Neumann and most of the Goats of maths (eg Einstein Turing) had spent their brains on the bad of nuclear arms race (and were in at most last 6 years life) CONSEQUENTLY the system design scoop Neumann asked dad to train his peer economist Journalists- has a lot of depth to unpack:

ask what goods will people connect with 100 times more tech every decade to the 2020s?

-eg taking a generation as 30 years or a million times more tech - would such goods as peace, natural harmony, ending poverty traps colonial era had spun geographically, valuing human development (half of which may depend on child's experience from 0 to 6 even if historically teachers start at 7?)

my fathers attempts to answer that question can be reviewed in two halves 

33 years of work at The Economist 1951-1984 - see eg published surveys mainly free at teachforsdgs.com ; audiences we connected with co-authored book series 2025 report first in English 1984 then other languages before dad turned to complete biography of von neumann)

this book review by viscount ridley suggest we timelined future tech dev of web1, 2 pretty closely through last 15 years of 20th and first 15 of millennials century - but practically speaking none of the societal goods we had timelined as jiyous human opportunities have been selected

in 2022, we invite contributions to an omnibus last edition of 2025 report- I am particularly fascinated by web3 and many // constructs as lat media chance to put investment in education first not least; i am intrigued by a group of rebels at UN ny sept 2016- reviewing year 1 of goal 4 education they said this is hopeless blah unless we connect ny policymakers with digital cooperation out of geneeva where tech health and trade genii connect- what was called by chansge education  heroes "digital cooperation" from 2016 -Now in 2022 Un tech envoy office - here are some 2022 updating links to what this small team is doing / worldwide personally connecting:

which are the best of web community treasuries for which of guterres SDGs

for maths people - related link   https://datawithpurpose.org and https://www.un.org/techenvoy/content/digital-environmental-sustainability  & www.codesmeta.com 

 the world of 2022 and 8 billion beings is extremely fragile

but sunshine seems to be emerging in education daos

start with the simplest https://www.dreamdao.xyz/ do you want your place to have 15 to 20 year olds who have most expereince of how to help with next sustainbvility chalenges and most trusted cooperation ftriends around the world dream dao is as far we can finnd the most productive way of finacing that around late teens workld -please tell us if you see other best in breeds


www.ed3dao.com and transparency note i have 1/6000 stake in its treasury but I trust its female aisn founder to have made connections i could never have imagined- with educatirs of her generation, with those crypto artyists who are fredesigning value chains ot arts sports fashion music in two waysd - to maximise youth's ownership of teh value chainsd of these markets; to redesesign who youth celebrated - we need to twin entertainent cekebrities with action heroinesd in communitie and education systems need to know who is who- i see up to 30 education sub-traasuriesd need asap - in fact each of goal 2 food/agriculture - goal 6 water; goal 3 health goal 5 needs at least one netwirk which mergesd educatirs and last mile jobs in those practices


from 2008 glasgow trued to launch the virtually free nursing colege - with tiodays tech we would certainly have tried designing it asd a dao - as it was muhammad yunus was lead partnre in borrowing scoltands lead trainers of nbusres but he lost his main liecent to oeprate in the polutical troubles he got into from his 69th birthday (acce=identally my family had helped spo=posor taht eg getting the bbc number 2 green briadcatser paul rose and at that time the brit embassys main education guru DR to attend - then glasgoiw hosted yunus 70th burthday wish party and created 2 journallsd soecial busienss and new economics to help report the smissing sdg finacial models


we aslo expect beingai.com to celebarte the number 1 femele consciousnesds including mental courage/helath empotion intelligence and curate this to where places also have outstanding sdg sdolutions to go tour- whats fascinating about metaverse is virtual ecotourism can be 100 fold more thah real ecotourism- while we would suggest one person from you=r community goes check out reality and makes local twin friendships with your community- more and more climate adaptation can be trained through virtula reality modes and if you look at zbee's heritage in curating knowledge few teams have more expereince in contexts celebrating worldwide un accomplihments than team zbee


so one of the questions is if since 2008 subprime you were part of a really deep sdg cooperation movement - would it have scaled more if 2022s understanding of daos had been available - happy to discuss this with anyone or any top 10 web3 city - in my searches top 10 web cities currently include hong kong singapore bangkok parts of new york miami  (its real hard to know whats going on in mainland chima but wherever I have visted communities like those close to chirman maos home town! the desire for community cooepration treasuries has been there -and there is a reason for women empowerment being as strong on china mainland as anywhere - thats the one child policy which operate over 30 years - this meant half of all fiamlies were ever more dependednt on their education 20-something daughters- i thinks its a great pity to let national politicians stop you from learning from human development wherever it leapt in the past (thats a different subject than what next or sued to be unitil it became clear that only youth cooperation can now save our species) - see hundreds of un tesimonies on that or ask me for the files

how can you help fund what your community is missing most? nurses, teachers ...? new world of NFT, DAO ...

 Suppose the community you are in is:  missing 10 or more nurses or teachers or green food/water designers or even arts cafe hosts for joy of teenagers -or playschools for staring up community...

in web2: you could try go fund me a typical web 2010s solution 

or in 2022 or from reading this onwards if you think there are hundreds of communities needing missing  essential last mile jobs servants you could start a DAO and NFT-

i am not smart enough to know why such a beautiful innovation as dao has such a gobligook name as Decentralised Autonomous Organisation (but hey i suppose tech geeks are now more peculair than botanists that named everying in latin). You can play a game - what are the 5 most gobligook words - if you know what they mean eg non-fungible- you probaly dont need this novice's crib sheet!

-related a check on what people (and their biggest organsiations) did to each other in different tech worlds; web 3, 2, 1 mass tv, before mass tv

- we are not suggesting you should be a crypto saver let alone an NFT founding team chasing investment-:  unless you really care about a community skill and maybe have already connected dozens of likeminded people in other communities; maybe these people all have the same ethnicity or gender or maybe its just as in case of water that across a contient there are now hundreds of communities with different water problems - back in 2003 i tried to found waterangels on a virtual community officially designed to unite all european countries- footnote 1 

maybe its my age but i have found much aboyt 20=1st C weird; one thing to watch is theres a very large number or crypto enthusiats who forst met playing games; they have stories how some games asked them to create beautiful things - maybe a virtual necklace fir a girl heroine you met virtually but then found the game owner had the copyright to the design- if you do ptrepare to launch an nft you will probaly need to chat with gamers - they all hang out at an app called discord- and indeed concept nfts are often discussed in discord before investirs are found for them - in this lesson I dont want to tak=lk about art nfts - they are defintely the most visible nfts in 2022 - and given people liv=ke vinvent van gogh died penniless i am very happy for artists who start up humnderd million dolar connections in web 3 worlds but if most late 2020s humns are spending time in the emtaverse -we must be serbing each other in other ways than spectaor art

what else do you need to think about before even considering if  NFT is something you or someone you know wants to start up both as an oragsnaition with positive casg flpows but one that everyone celebrates for making life better


know a little about crypto currencies

know a littele about whether you need friends in artistic or gaming world

be sure you think about who may flame or otherwise attack you- once you launch an nft things often need to go either very fast scale to large aduience or very deep (small team your starup lives or dies with) in who you connect first; and it may be best to think whats caused the shortage in your community - if everybody really wants these missing skilled peoples then you've got a fair chance but if eg someone is making money from shortages or the power of deciding who gets what --- i honestly dont know what to advise you to do- talk to others - see who you trust; is there a school or community centre who will help you check out your roadmap

==============================================================

Footnote 1 Scots have been discussing moral stsyem design since our friend adam smith's publication in 1758. My father at the Economist first wrote a book on expoenetial risks to losing sustainability in 1984 called 2025 report. 9/11 conformed our most pessimistic scanaris - what if by 2000 media has not united most peoplesin awareness of mans biggest risk being discrepancies in income s and expectaions of rich and poor nations 9what un calls end povery goal 1. So i volunterred to moderate emotional intel on EU's knowledgeboard. Consequence Brussels threw me off the space for starting up a practical network called water angels - the risks of not mapping how humans share water worldwide- (apparently I had created too big a conversational topic (esdpecially with 2004 tsunmai) - for months our chat drowned out top page  academics screen pace in publishing long paper- anyhow if you  are in Europe today you certainly need to be way smarter than me to lead a DAO but I am still very interested to search out who is succeeding (ironically another part of brusssels asked me to contribute to 5 manual summits (eg emotional intelligence of first responder cooperation) even as I was thrown out of virtual space). One of my faults as a maths guy is I audit compound risks at the same time as profit accounting - i dont beleive its motral to do one without the other (i have spent half of my last 30 years debating that with the biggest accountants and ad agencies and we dont agree - people concerned with search for sustaining purose link in with me at eg friends20.com 

Fortunately in 2008, scots invited a Bangladeshi servanl leader to give 250th moral sentiments keynote.I spent 2010s looking at 30 of the most putrposeful network collaborations ever designedf - see what 1 billion vilage woemn did www.abedmooc.com  To celebrate what may be relevant  in these qyite scary 2020s Glasgow has agreed to co-share 265th moral sentiments lectire with the launch of microeducationsummit.com - what if its educators more than even ecoomists whoi can save youths world now/

Little about crypto currencies

in banking world,  Perhaps nothing man made is changing as much as crypto currencies - so i expect this aug 2022 little to know will need to look very different in a few months  (arguably when media chnages finance is first to change - what did finance do to you - web3 web2 web1 tv before web; before tv) before electricity ... 

I suggest novices on currencies (including me -footnote i studied maths and dont like spending time on zero sum games but now i realise i should have a bit more) start at asking themselves what is bitcoin and what is one other currency - currently I find it fun to ask what is ethereum

IF you are young, might want to live anywhere in the world or feel youyr country needs rebuilding (i studied how girls took on this challenge in bangaldesh when the nation was new) you might want to have some savings balanced by what your own nations currency does. Historically thats not been possible or legal. But today if you place permits cryto wallets then you can do that. 

TO get started yiu will need a cryptowallet . You have to go through a specific coding sequence. Google will quickly send you to what to do - meta mask is a typical wallet app for your mobile . Please note tgere is a lot more on crypto which I havent triedf to intro at eg https://www.khanacademy.org/economics-finance-domain/core-finance/money-and-banking/bitcoin/v/bitcoin-what-is-it

Probably the best first crypto currency to have a little saving in is bitcoin. It was the first. It is filled a gap in global money markets that it is hard to see being closed down. Its not being used to try out most of the exctraodinary community building eperiments. This actiually means its tech is simpler to provide (or should be the most secure).

If blockchain is the most conservative cryptocurreny, which can you have most fun with - in 2022 probably ethereum. Please note once you have eg bitcoin savings you can easily chnage into the other cryptos. 

There is a catch 22. which you can see - how prices have varied over last month 12 montehs longers

Bitcoin  https://www.google.com/finance/quote/BTC-USD

Ethereum https://www.google.com/finance/quote/ETH-USD

As far as i can see of all cryptos bitocin will rise stadily but from now on not spectacularly whwreas one of the currecies to play with may leap far higer. But currently all krytos vary a lot - bo9th bitcoin and ethereruem have varied 3 fold in the last 12 months. So if your reason for being in cryoto is long term also make sure you take advice as towhen to begin.


As at August 2022 if you want to do somthing with NFTs (even launch your own) you probablky dont need to know an awful lot about how the people who run ethereum itself do their job. What you need to excplore is all the NFTs that you can alreadt become a member of with etheruem minting as well as how people craete a new nft


What I want to do by second week of spetember is to discuss some dao cases I like eg www.ed3dao.com - i'd really like to hear from people who say my favorite is .. 

I hope to learn a lot more in new york 13 spet to 17 sept - perhaps we can zoom in or meet www.economistdiary.com - i am trying to understand how all this impacts millennails (under 30s and their teachers) as the first generation who mo=ust see the sustainability development goal achieved out of every communituy

This is a huge exploration - so yeah tell me what i have got wrong chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk or better links or if there is a big question you want to share with explotrers what is it


Below i wantt to add in some topics that I think need to be explored at the same time as crypt cyrrency

How are you all going to design or use web3 or the metaverse. Fu=ortunately hear the united nations and the world's largest proze host xprize have teamed up - 22-23 sees the first yera round competition www.sdgmetaverseprize.org - 2-6 people regsiterd by decemeber- chose 1 of 17 sustainability goals that matters most to you and yours- whats a viral story you can share on why ythisd matters (the last part of the sompetition is how to web 3 youyr story- but dont worry if you have a stury that billiinsd want - do it in whatever version scales an audience and web 3 mnetors can heklp you; whasts mots important is by may 2023 there are 17 networks each coop0erating around the sdg stiry that moves their world


The other Un topic is the number 1 chnage gutrerres is leading Un around 2017-2026 - he wants a dugital un2.0; there are 9 playing piesces

4 are tech; 4 are faith/consience based ie rights, inclusion public goods, trust/safety

the 34 tech piesces

digotal cooperation - this is everything educatirs can blend digoitally

ai for good- this is the question my father journalised since 1951 insoired by v neumann - ask what pepoples will do with 100 times more tech - so vereything aboove fits ai for good

there is digital capaity building which really means how will elder people have to unlearn at elast as fast as young people work

and there is global connectiviyty- there is a tech part of the un taht was founded in szuterland 1865 - the first global connectivuity chalenge was how woul organsitions get together "worldwide" to supply telegraps - soon alosmt any public goog beginning with tele or rad ...

You can see how the Un updates its playing pieces at

https://www.un.org/techenvoy/ if you are not starting yiyr sustainability year in ny - there's a un zoom out of mongolia spet 5, 6 - all joyful expoersr welcome via the envoy office

There is a 9th piece CODES about adasptation of green from ground up

Because the Un is sort of woed by nations as well as peoples its not alowed to brainstorm crypto until you show how tos cale sdgs with crypto - at ;least thats the gos i have heard so far - if I am wrong show me which parts of the UN are launching NFTS! or celebrating crypo1

from 2008 I was privileged to accompany muhammad yunus on USA tours from Tuskegee to Oregon from Atlanta to Greensborough ND; from UDC to UNH - we interviewed over 100 leaders of historically black universities helped judge a thousand student entrepreneur pitches- but at the end of it all I found a community in Baltimore where Thurgood Marshall grew up- their massive open collaboration (social action learning) could be turned into a test for licence for english-language teaching let alone public sector journalism or reality tv apprenticeships! imo -why has western public service got almost no examples of smart bot knowhow hotlines empowering community self-sufficiency? - new york's 15th annual graduate collaboration cafe focused on this problem march 22 and has found leading solution out of hong kong and various asian chapters of the UN metaverse - do you need to know about this? (see eg Beeings.app chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk writes - whilst I have lived near Bethesda Natronal Health Palace for 25 years my favorite community visit is where Thurgood grew up in Baltimore- if you have time to tour why , let's just do it. Hopkins & Armor can be included in visit if you like.
To our inspirational black american TGM - who's yours?SUMMARY DO CHILDREN HAVE A FUTURE: Back in 1951 my family and friends were given the most curious gift of all - dad was briefed by Princeton's Father of Intelligent Machines. Von Neumann. that journalists and teachers should practice asking big decision makers what will you gov with 100 times more tech per decade? or million times "moore" per 30 year inter-generation? Q&A explains last chance deadlines for Uniting Peoples or Nations or any other game/ people play on earth
BEEINGs.app & AbedPlay 50 million teachers asks for help - imagine designing 2025 LIBRARY - section 1 moral stories of people without engines from 1750s Glasgow to 90% of Bangladesh's 20th Century; 2 collaboration stories where love of each others children safely blended 2 crises posed by machines the energy inputs humans and machines each need; the intel that humans and machines can blend if we are to continue as nature's smartest specie, .what do you feel needs to be in section 3 - perhaps some arts and verses and music every community can celebrate as girls and boys come out to play?;

NFT & UN2.0 libraries

 Back in 2018 we were told july un ny that those responsible for 300 trillion (yes trilion) dolasr of pension funds did not see sdg projects as asset grade

in other words parental generations have given up on sustainability of youinger half of the world whether they consciously understand that or have been misled by bad media etc

anyhow tyhe two main ways I aim to search are giv2.0 if/when government last mile services get back to funcung best intercommunity solutions - see UN2.0 which ofefgrs benchmark any gov can connect with- i have a library of about 30 files -i will try and index this in a logical curation odrer soon but if urgent ask chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk - if you have a particular region or sdg in mind then that can help me pick ouyt file you brobaly need forst - see also www.edunomist.com and www.economistdiary.com where we review some files in depth

daos and defi- at the moment I am very picky who's information i9 trust on -in fact I always start with vritie's newletters and see where they ;ead me to (transparency note currentluy I own one unit of her ed3 minting)

who did waht first with web3 web2 web1 tv age pre-tv pre-electricity

 rougly speaking web3 began after covid in 2022-some say web3 starts fully when people put virtual reality sets on instead of web 2 accessing world through mobile smart device; web 1 access worldwid through personal computer

web1 personal comourer newtorking began eg in usa massively in 1990 with berners lee worldwide web though already with email access america on lines 

its arguable that the majority of the world leaped into web 2 with mobile smart devices witjout exoereincing web1  for example the largest populatiin in the world chuna never really had fixed line telephones as a massive tool - they leap staright to mobile; and indeed we chat (not email) was how most chinese webbed

however there are somewhat hidden difernces - if web 1 worlsd was accessed mainly by sitting with a personal compuyter- ofetn that gps location was not recorded of not much interest - but with mobile gs=psd was part of the fdata big platforms collected


all of web 3 2 1 and mass tv and before that explain how industru=y sectirs eveolved - and did they get better for every human being or did the big get bigger making more money for ever fewer people

looking at finace is an interesting case- and we are oversimplifying - but letsd say americans got the first chnace to nationwide advance finace and tech- what they chose to do during the tv age was automatic cash dispensers and credit cards- whilst conveneint thesde ended communityt banking in a race to be the chnain with the most atms or the most credit cards; this saved the bank as advised=r on saving to a making money from putting most people in debt with credit cards- in other worders fintech usa even in the televison age:

put most people in more debt while credit cards offered pinoints advantafes to the richest

took up to 6% of comerce transcations throuigh charges to both customers and trade- when webs came along there is little evidence of the big fiancail players in us passing on value to majority of americans even though digital ended paper record keeping and ulytinately if a world goes all cashless the marginal tracsction cost of reocrd keeping woukd in throry make it possiblke to bank for people whose trasnactiosn are so smal that previously banks did not serve them

perhaps we exagerate but interesting to see what happened ece=ven in web 1.5 world of the first mobbile phones that also shared text- now text could start cashless systems like kenya's mpesa - in oartoicular wjen a young kenyan remiited earning is nairobi to poorest rural family mpesa now offered an economical way of transfering money where previously he world have had to find a trusted transporterd (eg a friend who was bussing back to same vilage region)

so its not obvious that the most advanced peoples will use each leap in tech to benefot all theoir peopels starting with communities which face the most sustainable risdks; equally if we look around the wprld we can see extyraordinary examples; i visited bangladesh 16 times - there much of the nation was built by poorest vilage motehrs; there each leap frowrd in finamnce and tech was designed to include benefits for the very poorest or the elast connected to hekath care or the oethers most divided from what the un calls sdgs


-all of this is worth discussing as post covid we also design web 3 - metaverse potentially DAOs and NFTs or all sors of other ways of connecting see the forst year round comoetition www.sdgmetverprize.org

 EconomistBank.com Can one Royal Dutch Engineer & Billion Poorest Women design 3 economic miracles in time to prevent extinction:?

1-2-3 of Human Development Mission Impossible?
  • 25 years human development without any engines
  • 25 human development with leapfrog models partnering solar and mobile
  •  100 new universities across asia where women graduates main purpose is to design solutions offering 50 million sdg jobs per solution -examples playschools of the world , ultra poor graduation - 3 billion new jobs - green, community , teach by/for lives matter

advisory - if you are an  economics miracle co-searcher - dont expect collaboration entrepreneurship at the western business schools that have designed student debt as the biggest form of  debt 

- if possible chat to son shameran abed while he's celebrating Brac worldwide office at the hague alongside climate collab epicentre GCA.org

WHEN FRIENDS ASK ABED CAN WE MOOC YOU?, ABED SAID ONLY IF C=COLLABORATION
--or help improve these links which took 16 trips to bangladesh to assemble following leads provided by sir fazle and his main tech partner in  designing the world's largest cashless bank and the japanese ambassador

intergeneration economic miracles are difficult to map because like architecting anything from the foundation up there is a need to understand sequentially even if today you are only interested in the most recent 7 collaboration wonders which showed how new universities could respond to the question mrs steve jobs is reported to have asked sir fazle to at a millennium goals party in the valley circa 1999

BACK TO STARTUP OF BILLION WOMENS WEB- THE MISTAKE THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING
This happened when the former number 1 young asian engineer of oil company royal dutch shell spent his life savings on rebuilding 15000 village homes that the war of liberation had demolished in a far north east corner of what had been the british raj's administration of quarter of the world's people
It was a mistake because although his co-sponsor oxfam affirmed these were the best value village houses ever built by disaster relief networkers , no sooner that the this had been done by dozens of village mothers and scores of village infants were dying weekly of starvation or dehydration

Possibly the greatest idea oh modern human development happened when abe d took on responsibility for the 100000 village livelihoods whose metavilage he had just built- it occurred to him design small business microfranchsiesd for village mothers to operate - unlike fast food chain macrofranchises the microG is designed so the value produced compound round the producer and her community - it is not sucked out by some rich old masters of extraction 

 no worries how small  a microfranchsie is as long as ot achieves positive cash flow and is trusted locally as prioritising life shaping needs: eg end starvation  by designing agricultural microfranchises - in the tropics where half of humans live  local rice  production and one veggie is essential to human energy; end unnecessary deaths by designing a last mile health service ; within 3 years BRA-Collab had tested solutions one 100000 person metavillage needed and was being asked by other metavillages to spread the knowhow (this educational networking happened another 10000 times until a billion village mothers were person to person networking the end to extreme rural poverty by 1999...)

what's utterly remarkable (I admit unbelievable to me until I went to see it over and over) about economic miracle one: over 25 years - effectively to the end of the 20th century is it needed to be performed with no access to engines- making it both the quietest and greenest entrepreneurial revolution and collaboration uniting human intel

 (being without any of the applications of engines b1760-1990s is what rural meant in 20th C Asia); Abed had needed to empower a mainly illiterate population but one whose mothers love of children had no equal in the rest of late 20th c earthling ; culturally the metavillage was still prevalent because  mothers were left with large families to tend while men could always leave the village to search for work or self-gratification

so you might thini that  the first 11.5 microfranchise solutions composing economic miracle 1 would be accurately celebrated the world ever but not by american business schools, not by western g8 aid, not yet by the biggest o9rgansiational governance systems, not even by Public Private Partnerships unless their leaders have spent time injn the vilages that 20th century progress had forgot -

 this economic miracle was after all too local for people sitting in ivory towers or supreme courts to imagine- and it c certainly did not fit the  soap operas of western commercial tv or the junk we surround pre-adolesence kids with feeling they need
 
for those investment funds concerned with the Social Purpose of ESDG there are 5 dimensions to this miraculous economic intervention ; designing platforms for sustaining 100000 villagers communities at startup in 1970s 5.1 5.2
adult and child education 4.1 4.2 -adult livelihood training - primary both literacy, livelihood and happiness training of village girls as both lifelong practice in learning doing and teaching 
3 last mile health service interventions -10 most basic medicines doordash ; nationwide mothers of oral rehydration ; nationwide infant vaccination
2 two and a half agricultural - human energy solution - rice to end starvation ; veggies because without vitamins body and brain deform ; a trading channel with the city - crafts, silk clothes and their design, climate adaptation eg forestry (I call this half as while it was designed into brac from the getgo it was probably the last of the solutions to scale but without any village city trade - the evolution form 90% rural to 70% rural during bangladesh's first 50 years would probably have not permitted rural women to build the nation)
1 financial solution- abed would say - as he is both the most modest and determined human superstar i'll ever meet - that he didnt design these - they sort of emerged; er didnt go telling charitable dutch or british people that we need to design village capitalism - he simply said if we microfranchise we can scale in time to save most lives
2 he didnt ask to be the world's number 1 epicentre  of microfinance- once thousands of mother positive cash flows were up and running  in 1976 they needed banking - he asked the government for provision; the reply : sorry we are too busy (with our small tax base) developing citizens services; it was only a decade after BRA-C had started ip that the government passed a national ordinance for yunus to run a government bank for the poor; please note the entrepreneurial revolution's core was not financing it was the microfranchising (the  womens business actions) and the massive collaboration

Un report how much of finance is destroying sustainability of generations

https://www.un.org/development/desa/financing/post-news/financing-sustainable-development-report-2022  Guterres As we release this report on financing for sustainable development, the world is under enormous and

growing stress. And we, the international community, are failing to respond adequately. The COVID-19

pandemic is still raging, now in its third year. The climate crisis continues unabated and largely

unaddressed, pollution and biodiversity loss continue to threaten the health of the planet, and multiple

geopolitical conflicts are devastating untold lives.

The war in Ukraine is the latest in a cascade of crises for developing countries that continue to struggle to make

development progress, achieve vaccine equity and achieve a just and safe recovery. The cost of energy, food and

other commodities is rising, further intensifying volatility in global financial markets. There is a great danger that,

as our collective attention shifts to the conflict, we neglect other crises that will not go away.

It would be a tragedy if donors increased their military expenditure at the expense of Official Development Assistance and climate

action. It would also be self-defeating. Without more international support and a strengthened multilateralism, the world will diverge

further, inequality will soar, and prospects for an inclusive and prosperous future will be further undermined.

We must not lose sight of the commitment of the 2030 Agenda to leave no one behind, especially at this perilous moment. Developed

countries have been able to finance a rapid economic recovery from the pandemic, through massive fiscal support and aggressive

monetary policy responses. But most developing countries can afford neither, despite international support. Instead, they continue to

face increasingly high costs of lending and have had to cut their education and health budgets and other SDG investments, undermining

not only their recovery, but also their medium and long-term development prospects.

Finance is both a contributor to the divergence we are seeing between developed and developing countries and a key to overcoming

it. In my report, Our Common Agenda, I have identified key deficiencies in our global financial system that exacerbate inequalities and

drive risk. This year’s report on financing for sustainable development spells out actions designed to overcome the current paralysis of

international policy-making and build a better multilateralism that can address the multiple crises we face.

We must close the financing gaps that prevent so many countries from investing in recovery, climate action and the SDGs. Developed

countries must meet their ODA commitments, particularly to Least Developed Countries. We must take full advantage of our public

development banks to scale up long-term financing. And we must immediately and fully finance the Access to COVID-19 Tools

Accelerator so that vaccines can reach 70 per cent of the world’s population during the first half of 2022.

To build a more sustainable, inclusive and resilient global economy that works for all, we must also reform the international financial

architecture with rules that are inclusive, effective and fair. Our inability to address debt challenges in many countries speaks to the

glaring inequities that continue to characterize our global economic order.

As well as addressing the weaknesses of the Common Framework for Debt Treatment, we must urgently work toward a more

comprehensive solution to sovereign debt challenges. The United Nations can provide a neutral and inclusive venue to bring together

all countries, major creditors, debtors and other relevant stakeholders to discuss how to reform the international debt architecture. This

report provides the basis for such discussions.

It is time to abandon short-term profit maximization for the few and move towards a long-term outlook that integrates economic, social

and environmental justice and opportunity for all. To that end, we must align all financing policies with SDG and climate priorities—

government budgets, tax systems, investments, regulatory frameworks and corporate reporting requirements. And we must change

how we measure, and ultimately think of progress. In a world of interlinked and systemic risk, GDP is no longer an appropriate metric

of how we measure wealth and shared prosperity. We must find ways to take vulnerabilities into account more systematically in the

allocation of concessional financing and actions on debt.

I commend this report’s recommendations on how to close financing gaps and create a better international financing architecture. It is

time to change course.
