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

 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.
