michael thanks for reaching out to my friends and I

i noticed one of your videos mentioned trying to create 1 million jobs in somalia- that alone stimulates me to buy a copy of your book

actually you may have gathered my media friends and I collaborate with young people in many countries around a simple survey 
who do you search as the top 10 job creators connected with sustainability goals livelihoods?
i am sure our young people would love to hear your view -collaboration surveys never have a single perfect answer instead we keep on action learning 

people like jack ma and sir fazle abed head our current rankings -and for that reason we invest in youth intelligence/ hubs/leaders qyests in china and bangladesh - perhaps the 2 most opposite success stories of  end poverty 2000-15 but where we find jobs leaders want to learn from each other especially where they share common need for wizard coders

i would love to share diaries in case there is a chance either for us to meet or you to meet some youth
basically i am dc-based - will always travel to new york or boston - and probably any us city if someone like you is flying through

i get to china or bangladesh or both about once every 6 weeks

happy to travel to europe to my home space but need some help in understanding what collaboration focus can be achieved- for 3 years i helped volunteer edit the european union knowkledgeboard on csr , intangibles valuation and ngo issues but was then thrown out for demanding youth ask questions at various parts of the EU that seemed to me around 2004 to be part of the problem not the solution

i feel the next 10 years are when sustainability will be won or lost by the 3 generations including under 30s alive today- so if there are urgent ways to help youth collaborate and change education in this regard i try my hardest as do all my most linkedin friends

probably the biggest event in a long while from my view is un education summit on september 18- please tell me if vou or any associates are there  

since chinese  yuxuan and amy,  bangladeshi mostofa and canadian-african-new yorker stephanie are the 4 youth who connect the most around the job creating sustainable world we hope to see i have copied them in case they have any more practical queries than I have

Dear Chris Macrae
For the European summer months I thought you may like to look at some videos on a number of topics that kept me in front of the camera the past 12 months - do check out https://www.csrfi.com/publications 
Happily, my Sustainability/CSR Online course goes from strength to strength and my CSR/Sustainability Text Book is in high demand:
CSR and Sustainability `
 
On a flight back to North America from Ghana (August 2016) and had a chance to take a quick look at your book. Impressive.  Seems well organized.  Good content and rationale support.  Covers a range of areas. What I’ve read is a practical and pragmatic blend of theory, practice and research. I look at a lot of CSR books.  Few of them are ones that I would really recommend.  Yours is different.  Congratulations. Wayne Dunn, President & Founder, CSR Training Institute Professor of Practice in Corporate Social Responsibility, McGill University / ISID

Enjoy!

Against the general picture of massive destruction of youth's jobs and loss of hope in goodwill economies around the world including recent folies like british exit from europe and the bipolar choice of next us presidents, and ever crazier problems to europe's south and east whose risks brissels have been totally blind to ober last 30 years ... 

youth i am connected with in china, rome, dubai, and bangladesh have made some progress ready to combat economistdiary.com of global youth tipping points - and I have made my first two visits to china
we also are blessed by friends in new york as an epicentre of debating whether any of the UN goals can be taken back by youth to work on (and a parallel cluster emrging around city of london) - linked to the approxuiamtely 3 billion jobs of the net generatuion my father first mapped in The Economist from 1972 -
 approximately 1 bilion renew planet,
 1 billion renew every community and sustain bordeless peace and wellbeing through open elarning and microframchising of community empower social services, 
1 billion jobs where coders co-ctreate way above zero-sum infratrsuctiures by valuing how  mobile apps/networks of knowhow can multiply value in use unlike consuming up things
ever crazier problems to europe's sout
in beijing last week we met professor lowrey - a superstar of explaining how Jack Ma and ali baba is regenerating small business everywhere in china and especially in villages -its platform offers a ;post-indsutrial economy to plug and play everywhere thet Small Enterprises have previously been scarificed by politicians of big gets bigger and short-term greed takes over from any trustworthy forms of inetrgenerational investment; a week earlier we were being briefed in bangaldesh by Sir Fazle Abed on what he needs to know about ali baba to take the world's largest end poverty NGO BRAC to the next stage (over the last 4 years BRAC itself entered as a world elader of the digital economy by buildig the develoing world's largest cashless bank www.bkash.com with support of MIT and other technolgy wizards; on september 18 at start of un week the education commission on the future of education will leapfrog beyond other UN summits opening ist year 2016-2017

PIERO QUESTION 1
so my forst question is do you knoiw anyone at Rome's annual Villa series where she conytrobuted in 2014 -whats particularlu ingteresting is as well as directly running youth programs to understand Jack Ma -see her coordination of aliresearch.com she is mentored by columbia university nobel economics winner ;professor phelps who seems toi have branded the term "mass flourishing" to connect with the system designs you and me tried to search across euroepan union and knowledge management networks in early 2000s but were largely told off by brussels and luxembourg wherever we connected 

XXVI Villa Mondragone International Economic Seminar Tor Vergata Economics Foundation - FUET University of Rome Tor Vergata 1-3 July 2014 “Anaemic Europe : How to Achieve Dynamism and Mass Flourishing"

PIERO QUESTION 2
My treciolection is those days os taht you did have som china connectiosn poarticula on sustainability assets such as water.
Wityh maurice in Rome and Yuxuan and Amy in China connecting {Professor Lowrey now would be a great time to reconnect any economists of friendsd who argue that the net generation jobs are absolutely critical to where the human race will be led over the last 15v yeras that tregaining sustainabiloity is possible

any other questions we could be asking ecah other and linking in the world's most energetic youth around? (eg QuiarterBilionGorks movement founded in Changsha last week to poomote livelihoods of the quarter os billion chiense girls under 30 - the most critical segment of the next decade according to father's curriculum of how to prevent losing himanity to Big Brother's systemic endgame

all the best chris macrae washington dc 240 316 8157
i would happily come over to rome or other places in italy if we can linkin those who want to dismantle top-down brussels while there is anything peaceful left for youth to work on

debate the economist http://www.economist.com/comment/3167018

from new economics institute


Several days ago, we woke up to a new world. Britain had voted to leave the European Union. Some were pleased, many were deeply concerned. What is likely is that many will be affected. Some wonder if the EU will survive. It will take months if not years to fully understand the ramifications.

why the brexit is every european family's and community's last tipping point back to sustainability provided we linkin quarter of billion chinese girls to #2030now

Three generations will detrmine whether humanity wins or loses sustainabliity.

THE GRAND & SUPERPOWER SCARED
Those whose youth was spent impacted by world war 2 (stalin , hitler, nuclear) and who in the 1950s dreamed up the most wonderful social concepts (but with no income sustaining model).
In effect this generatoon (see pope francis Strasbourg admonition of systems dsigned for infertle haggard granmothers) was planting the seeds of exponentially crashing ponzi schemes

THE YOUTH
 Urgent question: Will these ponzi schemes destroy the livelihoods of youth as 21st C comes of age? -NB this is the generation who most needed  sustainability investments designed into expoential futures to crack the code of 3 billion new jobs- billion renewing planet, billion renewing family and community linked through every global vilage, billlion coding way above zero-sum mobile open source solutions and leapfroging infrastrustures which hostory had so partually disributed through empire and thing extraction age

THE CORPORATELY & POLITICALLY UNCONSCIOUS PARENTS
the middle geenration to design globalisation . The opportunity could have been to open society in ways that minimised intergenerational threats and took future way above the zero sum games of currency and consuming up scarce things. Instead this generation designed big bangs, bubbles of dotoms, fraudulently audited utilitoes and sub-prime banking. Their trap was particularly dismal in developing  big capital cities. Much of this generation's main income didnt depend on creativity of hard work but benefiting from property bubbles - caused by by the  tv age's double whammy oif politicians not taxiing property so as prevent such citizen bubbles, while not regulating banks form mathematically fraudelnt aaa ratings

bbc.avi whiat's unique broadast purpose of world civics service


Here are ten of the least expoentialy economic things that systems such as the European Union did ,and which Britons now should invite every citizen group -and global youth - to exit from

10 Free trade can be a positive intergenerational dynamic provided you dont muddle it with a common currency and you dont compound top down mountains of stuff that causes particular harm to those on the excluded side of the borders to your free trade. The Berlin-Brussels deigned the worst policy for ukraine as piggy in middle with old USSR. The worst policy at borders of turkey (the land bridge between euro and eastern cultures)  , and left greece and italy with the  msot ignorant immigrant policies due to not learning from the cultural crisis of toppling saddam hussein before toppling  gaddafi. Note the particular role of germany versus ukraine. Instead of caring about this geographically most dsiadvantaged of nations between east and west europe (the one who had suffered most from ussr ineffiucieny to keep nuclear safe) Germany became so dependent on cheap energy from russia that the EU that Germany ordered wasnt going to lift a protective finger to prevent russian invasion of ukraine

9 Note the euro was a peculair ponzi scheme mainly designed by germany to keep its hi international perfomances rigged by artifiacially low currency and a ponzi scheme of brussels bureaucrats who loved to rule over grang continent-wide projects, with the french the other dominat uneconomic policy making force believing it was Europe's top dog over germany and every nation < In reality France was actually  in the worst social contracts with its workers and least competent in understanding germany's financial and psycholgical takeover of the contienent

8 if you are going to unite places in win-wins then funds allocated to disadvantaged places  need to design in relative marketing advanatages. However the early 1990s EU funds to countries like portugal were given to manufactiring companies to produce more stuff but gave no advice on market differentiation. So portugal produced more things mountans but with no export markets for relatively low quality and generic (non-brand segmented) items. If there was a single huge giveaway scheme between richer and poorer nations that was designed to give one of the pooerst countries in the union its own advantage (whiule being locked into a common currency) I would love to know where it was and how that scheme was designed with a sustainable nation bradning edge that eg PEDIP so thoughtlessly failed to design

7 Around 1999 Europe got one of the doubly worst millennial bugs. This was a political dream of aiming to be the knowledge economy continent leading the world and celebrating millennial projects as beacons of intergenerational hope. Probably the worst white elephant projects was watching greece being awarded olympics for 2004. Note how the sporting non-profits were hugely uneconomic and a trap for greece , for what supersar heroes youth follow, for where the profit of the non -profit went. As we know from FIFA parallel house of frauds big profits largely go into adminstrators swiss bank accounts. Europe's most scary countries in secret banking were swizterland with its strange arrangemt of not being in the EU but prime tax haven for every big poliutician or corporate. Inside the union Luxembourg

6 Luxembourg was also to play several key roles in destroying the peoples knowledge economy. Unlike the knowledge co-working views of eg peter dricker , luxemnbourg's pride and joy was every advance in technology that replaced workers. Why? because ulptimately it was the home for the boigest individual dynasties and their hedge funds. The kinds that believed 20% return could be the norm if you backed  digital startups. In fact the built to flip model of dotcoms was the first of bubble waves of Low-Trust professionals .  The 2000s followed with fraudulently audited ulities or genertic producers (from usa enron to europe's parmalat)  and then subprimes.Note there is a guaranteed way to make a killing on the stockmarket which is to bubble up something then sell short before you prick the bubble In the year 2000 Brookings published unseen wealth explaining how the big 5 auditors had raced to maintain their tangible auditing monopoly by creating algorithms for intangilbes valuation that they had no audit competence at -and so which compounded unseen risks. Bush closed down this US movement with the main author of unseen wealth being despatched to ameruca's coventry -ie from her positiion at georgetown law school to tenessee. Remember US in 1999- if the voting count had been equitable gore might have actually supported sustainable global accounting. For 3 more years the EU accidentally permitted gutsy research on intangibles which in Knowledge speak was given the name : intellectual capital. I remember the day when i was having lunch in brissels with the head of eu resarch funds for intagibles- chris this research has been closed down. Politicians feel this is an issue the public dont care about - and wont be important until 3 Eueropan Enrons all occur in the same year. As it tiurned out when far more collapsed  in the worldwide subprime year of 2008, research into unseen was remained ignored. The banks were bailed out at the cost of youth. And to this day big bankking still  does not audit compound risks of unseen wealth

5 Back in 1972, The Economist survey of Next 40 years explained why paper printed currencies the world over would cause a global financial meltdown in 2010s unless mactroeconomic short-fixes made by the oldest of the 3 generations were redesigned. By 1976 the ER genre was clarifying that the 3 major western organisational constitutions - corporate , government and charity were incapable of expoenetialy systemising millennials  markets with the most life critical social impacts - would the greatest of all economic system design innovations be taken on? The answer by 2009 was not yet in the West.

4 Oddly the west with its old rich nations was never going to be the most innovative lab of sustainability goals experiments. The half of the world's youth living on 1% of planet earth within 3000  miles of beijong were gong to be where open system designs rose capable of unting humanity in sustainabiluty goals.  Here the european union got exactly the wrong end of the stick of  1.0 bangaldesh's great economic mkiracle of  vilages without infrastricure of the pre-digital age; and 2.1 from 1996 greatest coding models to leapfrog over the partial infratucture allocations of empire and industrial age. Within the space of a week of 2011 Muhamad Yunus was celebrated as chief guru at the only global microcredits summit to have been convened in europe  (in spain with queen sofia idealistic champion) and a global social business partnerships conference in Brussels. Problem was by this time Yunus had lost his bank to politicians in Bangladesh. What youth needed was: a mass celebration of open source socilal startups that could be replicated across . This proved to be the last thing EU had any intent of staging. In effect private and public partnerships again left youth out of triangularising what youth as the last "yes we can" generation could have mediated so that western communities were saved from macroecoomic self-detruction

3 So today Chinese youth will be key if the great youth in development -private youth public - partnerships are to wave optimistic trationalsim around a borderless world. Will they go stiudy sistainability soltions from BRAC University in Bangladesh instead of any of the big business schools in USA?. And will languages (eg chinese, english, mother tongue, coding and emotional trust) empowered by peer to peer learning unite global youth . Their opportunity is to collaborate around social world trades across the very natons that elders wars ( physical and macroeconomic) had divided and conquered

2 So if the BREXIT is to help save social world trade the conscious purpose of the  BBC could  be : number 1 in broadcasting good news jobs . Those that need knowledge acted on to celebate  open source microfranchise solutions. And Britain could ;lead the way in helping chinese and english speaking youth linkin above zero sum trades

1 Ultimately the learning economy (if designed around above zero sum value exchanges) can be 10 times bigger becasue action knowhow multiplies in use and can leverage "death of distance" mobile networks linking all of humanity. In contrast,  zero sum speculative models implode bringing ever more risk to the least connecetd. The European Union needs to be seen as being as dead as a dodo to youth's next 3 billion jobs. Global youth can bring back cross-cultural joy and microeconomic sustainability -let all local to global cirizens exit brussels and berlins big brother continent. Its youth's time to lead and be led by investment models that value little sisters instead of Orwellian Big Brothers.


Can yunus solar for a billon model be saved by East-West from his righteous war over subprime banking
