This book connects 3 value multiplying practices of human endeavour. Each practice frees a kind of knowhow needed to be productive in a networking age. So, we recommend both educators and families empower young people with rehearsals of these practices in as many creative ways as possible.


Prepare to be joyful wherever innovation of curious learning processes increasingly replaces over-examination of 20th C subjects ones where some powerful man declared that there was only one way to be right. We are living in a generation of such extraordinary change that conventional wisdom is often a mindset jail. Parents who want to help their children avoid this are recommended linking in to –a centre of gravity for pioneering this freedom over a quarter if a century. As befits a worldwide action learning lab, these new skills were piloted with youth in the geographically isolated New Zealand but have identified passionate ambassadors in many other cultures including over 10 million Chinese parents.


Practice 1 is the search for entrepreneurial cases openly demonstrating the most exciting solutions to life critical needs experienced at local community (or village) levels. Equally these solutions often provide exciting new jobs that young people’s peer to peer networks could do in ways that parents did not have the technology to dream of organizing. Obituaries to my father Norman Macrae have dubbed him the Unacknowledged Giant of The Economist. This was partly because of the hundreds of interviews on entrepreneurial revolution that he wrote up at The Economist during the third quarter of the twentieth century. His readers have continuously helped to celebrate transparent mediation of such searches as integral to the innovative impacts of global village networking economics.


Practice 2 considers mapping and other tools that help make searches both collaboratively entrepreneurial and as deeply contextual as may truly be needed for microeconomic modeling. For example, please join us in confronting the whole truth of why at time of writing about one third of the communities of this world give babies born into them little or no chance to develop full lives. The reasons for such under-nourishing communities are all partly analogous but are also combinatorially different. Culturally they may stretch far back into local histories or may just represent a nexus of impacts from relatively recent misfortunes. If there is a war going on all around that is a different challenge for developing a child of a peaceful place but one like parts of 2010s Japan that have become ecologically contaminated –whether you view this as due to man’s scientific folly or nature’s apparently capricious outbursts. 


To know if a solution to a life critical challenge is replicable to another community we all need to be able to match community profiles in a detailed microscopic way that wasn’t possible to update before we all became internetworked. This is such a new practice that our greatest risk may be not realizing how simply yes we can all help to just do it now. Actionably, clarify what is needed for any map to be usable by everyone who wants to make connections. We ask you to celebrate mapping as one of the interdisciplinary topics that merits its own curriculum from every grade through kindergarten to 12th grade. More than that each worldwide class born in a particular year could help improve this peer to peer inquiry building on the past years experience. Back in the day of the very first work on computers it was proved that humans would always be more intelligent than machines provided educators valued empowering this unique capacity of human being to practise recursion.


The naturally simple idea of how to collaborate around linking in to the most exciting maps worth spending a lifetime’s work on can help to fill a gap in knowledge of media, system and network design. It may be one of the greatest under-practised skills needed to generate a sustainable planet. (Of course, we at the Norman Macrae Family Foundation are always delighted to hear of all nominations of under-practised skills:  rsvp


Practice 3 is the most controversial of our tasks. It may be dangerously so wherever command and control power rules over people. It involves “Puzzles of Fatal Conceit”. Why is that we human beings are often seduced into believing in the safety of numbers even though history shows serial evidence that a desire to get bigger and bigger is not a sustainable and safe way of advancing the human lot.


Without further ado , lets try out a puzzle of fatal conceit. Imagine if in 1984, the world’s people had been democratically told they had 2 opposite choices. One would mean that the net generation 1984-2024 would share in at least 10 times more productivity gained by sustaining rising exponentials such as those shown. Conversely the opposite way ahead shows that more and more communities will lose their sustainability.


Which way would worldwide people choose given the puzzle’s catch 22 stated that if they left 20th C constitutions unchanged the collapsing world would be the outcome?


It may surprise you to know that this puzzle was published in 1984. And updating information shows almost all over the world we are now at collapsing exponential tipping points shown


Why has this happened? You could blame those who originally knew about this problem – why weren’t they better at publishing it? Well as the person still alive who has experienced this challenge for over 27 years now, I agree with you. But as we journey through this book let’s also look at how often media and measurement dynamics of fatal conceit have blocked entrepreneurial revolutionaries’ attempts to help youth make thios the most productive time to be alive. Let's turn to a practical case whose epicenter is Bangladesh – a nation that was destined to celebrate being 40 years young in 2011. Let's storytell the case of how the greatest job-creating innovation on the planet emerged from this extraordinary country....   more coming soon

100 stories on creating jobs

#1 World entrepreneur Steve Jobs didn't just transform 7 market sectors - he changed how they openly interfaced. If you want to create jobs, how many industry sectors can you combinatorially change and why, for what social benefit? And can you guess which national culture Steve's father came from? Syria, proving, we suggest, that genes from anywhere in the world can be equally entrepreneurial. If we could maximise cross-cultural advantages of being a contributor to the first net generation, how many times more productive could our children be than our parents were? Jobs matches the number 1 profile "passion of unique purpose" that 60 years of journalising entrepreneurship confirms. His extraordinarily focused flow energising every co-worker and everyone who win-win-wins with Apple (what would world have missed if Apple or Jobs hadn't existed") is demonstrated by the second time he took charge of Apple. He grew it from near bankruptcy to joint equal most valued corporation in the world- and much of that time he was suffering from a terminal illness

#2 Did you know that the autistic children are making the most entrepreneurial use of the ipad? For others good news in autism communities - see MIT Media Lab notes and discussion at It seems that the ipad is as liberating to communicating the genius of autism as the once thousand times more expensive technology that helped empower the voice of steven hawkins - which other groups of people that the world previously classified as productively disabled can technology now socially transform?

#3 100 million job creation movement number 1: Have you heard of the professor who got tired of teaching elegant theories of economics and took his students out into the field to look for real world problems and job creating solutions? That adventure started in 1976, the year my dad (The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant) published part 1 of a trilogy on Entrepreneurial Revolution - on the need to transform all of the biggest 20th C organisations so that the first generation to go global and locally networked could maximise productive outcomes. Professor Yunus discovered in Bangladesh villages that endemic poverty is a systemic trap. The only financial services the poorest had were controlled by loan sharks. By building a community bank that only issued credit matched to each person's greatest opportunity to be income generating, economics' most marvelous invention -and the safest banking ever designed - could grow. In Professor Yunus' village bank, ownership was also entrusted to the poorest members, so recycling the banks profits into investment that poorest village mothers chose. Their 16 decision culture , which took 7 years to research before the bank was formally opened around its own constitutional law in 1983,  prioritised education and health of their children. Note 3 productive results of Nobel Laureate Yunus' model : 1 increasing the productive lives of village mothers, 2 reinvesting all the profit from serving them in developing inter-generation sustainability of the village, 3 breaking the cycle of illiteracy so that the next generation could have the chance to be as productive as youth anywhere around the world. The hi-trust Bangladeshi model of banking for the poor has since 1976 stimulated self-employment for about 100 million village parents around the world, developed hundreds of thousands of villages beyond poverty, and advanced the next generation's skills by a quantum leap.

#4 Economics of village banking used to be challenged by a particular cost problem. Manual book-keeping of banking transactions becomes relatively more costly the smaller the loan. However in 1996 Yunus started to lead the end of digital divides by ensuring a national mobile telephone system was designed round village economies not just city economies.
By 1996 the savings of the village (grameen) bank were sufficient to invest in the mobile telecom sector. Yunus had designed banking membership round 60 mothers per village centre where they not only met to bank once a week but formed their own community market and knowledge sharing circles. These were perfect hubs to link together with one shared mobile phone per centre  - co-producing a 50000 hub network corresponding to the bank's several millions of members.  And the new job of being the village phone lady became the greatest entrepreneurial income generator villages had then seen. The potential of the mobile phone has as remarkable future impacts in 21st C banks for the poor started from scratch once ubiquitous mobile phones are affordable - eg watch Kenya's Jamii Bora from 1999. Here every transactional record is electronically registered bringing the cost of keeping secure transactional records down by an order of magnitude, freeing the smallest loans ever to be affordable. Unlike the Bangladeshi village model, Jamii Bora also works with city youth who would otherwise have formed slum gangs. The new sorts of jobs youth are mobilising in redeveloping Kenya are extraordinary to celebrate - Jamii Bora has even financed the construction of a complete ecovillage, Kaputei, with almost all the jobs done by microfinanced youth. History note: while Tunisia is widely regarded as the start of the Arab Spring, it was Kenya's youth who first used mobile technology to resolve riots that elder politicians had spiraled -turning a potential national disaster into a creating jobs opportunity, More 

#5 NW hemispheres' ability to generate jobs for our next generation suffers from many fatal conceits of macroeconomists that have compounded since the speadsheet became the killer application of the age of being networked. A major problem in many sectors is the way technology has been used to replace jobs rather than create smarter jobs. However banking is an exception. In banking, technology has been used to trap customers in debt, and speculate with savings people wanted to be safest across generations. Peculiarly the reason for this seems to spin round protecting clerical jobs in a sector whose basic operational cost - recording transactions- technology reduced by 99%. Don't lets infer the wrong lesson. With thousands of times smarter and more collaborative technology than when man raced to the moon in 1960s, the 2010s can yet be youth's most productive decade as long as we celebrate youth who vote for such goals as sustainability of every community on planet earth, 

#6 Well over 30 extraordinary job creation ideas circulate around social networks linked in to or inspired by yunus. Many are as relevant to ending underemployment for youth in developed nations and ending poverty in developing nations. Here is a most startling finding. In more and more countries, most jobs are not going to be there waiting for which every youth pass the most exams in schools and universities. They will need to be co-created by youth during their years of education. This idea finally got publicly tested in America in Fall 2011 when 1000 youth together with their principals across the 45 colleges of the Georgia state system met in Atlanta to brainstorm - examples of the top 40 entries included designing a business to bring solar energy to the hundreds of thousands of movble homes across the state and forming e-trash facilities that not only recycle computer and electronic waste but used the resulting products to offer digital access to those youth who otherwise would have been left out of this productive competence. In other words, its not just economics professors with a future who will need to take their students out to the field to look for needs that correspond to creating jobs but every type of discipline capable of contributing to an educational institute's job-building purpose. Discuss more

#7 You may have noticed a pattern developing here. Full employment of the net generation will depend on youth from richer places action learning from and with youth from poorer places as much as vice versa. To some this may sound startling. To my father this mapped as sound economics as early as his 1984 book Doubtless this is partly because The Economist had been founded back in 1843 to help end hunger and capital abuse of youth. Founding editor James Wilson aimed to quiz decision-makers ahead of time on what investment purpose of each free market most sustained productive lifetimes out of the communities whose people would spending their lifetimes working in the sector or otherwise connected to its consequences (eg environmental ones). Trained as a statistician at Corpus Christ College Cambridge, I started research in 1976 of what societies wanted most from hundreds of different markets in over 40 countries. By the late 1980s in a database software partnership with MIT, we had collected the largest information base of its kind. Two findings were most startling (to me).
  1.  if poorest and richest societies had different views of what they needed most from a particular market sector, there was more economic value to multiply around the purpose of the poorest societies.
  2. the costs of marketing prior to the age of the net had become exactly the opposite of economic (eg the cost of tv advertising has increaed 10 times in real terms in under 2 decades)  ; if our childrens' children are to be fully employed we would need to transform all the waste that 20th C marketing (and other professions advising the largest organisations' boardrooms) have accumulated

#8  We can also ask, which institutions designed by the rich happily value the core purpose of a particular market sector in a similar way to the poorest. Take universities for example. The poorest would value a university the more it helps produce valuable lifetime employment for its alumni. Which university in the Western world does that and how? The answer to which university is MIT in Boston. We know this as MIT's impact report shows that if MIT was a nation , it would rank 11th in generating jobs, health and wealth way above any other university. How does MIT do it? Obviously that's a big question which is deeply embedded in heritage as well as current behaviours. But clues include : almost every disciplinary school (which MIT tends to call Labs) runs an annual entrepreneurial competition. And great care is taken so that winning entrepreneurs have access to 360 degrees of capital - from the most short-term to that which may be the most purposeful if the student and her peer network wants to spend a working lifetime in the field of practice she has already helped to pioneer.    discuss further at

#9 Everything that connects people to the internet combines to represent the biggest change in productivity that one generation of humanity has ever experienced. In effect our opportunities to become productive are now both borderless as well as with the man next door, whereas the vast majority of previous generations were constrained to generate income where they were geographically located. The reality we should be mapping the future back from is that 90% of enjoyable jobs in 2020 wont have existed in 1995. This means that the elder generation should avoid planning much for the next generation and certainly should put the next generation in debt because of the supposed excellence of a plan that made sense in the nationally separated world before 'the death of distance" became the greetest innovator to economics that the discipline had ever been impacted by.  Again the good news comes for observing what is being entrepreneurially co-created when the world's most resourced hi-tech organisations commit to hi-trust partnerships with societies in most desperate need of a market's solution, Really interesting webs include rsvp to add one




This net is dedicated to making the question – how do we create jobs?  one of the most important questions peoples, society, educational systems and worldwide netizens enjoy communicating everywhere that society flourishes. My family is in our 34th year of co-hosting this question.

All the free market assumptions of Adam Smith that Scots and French had historically helped  microeconomic understanding of the value multipliers of human productivity had been shredded > this was mainly by through the accidental but viciously spinning combination of big government and big television spots. These dynamics grew like topsy  in developed nations resulting as the two most extraordinary non-economic changes that creeped up on peoples and main street in q3. Those who experienced in exponential analysis of systems will recognize the familiar pattern of creeping up until a tipping point of accelerating collapse is breached. So much of human conflict and destruction of value has resulted because few if any societies in our modern world include this compass in education’s 4R’s  



What we need to do with all the urgency we can muster and celebrate is:  explore every way that families, youth and communities can be encouraged to innovate jobs and how these ways can be interfaced to win-win-win. Dad’s spent much of his next 15 years (1976-1991) of writing on exploring ideas of how the coming of the internet would double or nothing the job creating opportunities and threats to the future of youth. His 1984 report on this primary challenge of integrating every society into a globalization designed for young people and communities to flourish was translated into 4 languages and customized for different countries- Sweden commissioned its own report and Nordica has become one of the microeoconomic champions of our age of mobile networking and death of distance (the disappearing of geographical separation as a cost inhibiting human productivity). Next dad did the biography of John Von Neumann and was fascinated by the sorts of questions on job creation that the father of computing had planted.


Our family tradition as internationalist scots has always reveled in the way that Scots and French helped cheerlead job creating economics since the late 18th century branding the word entrepreneur for celebrations of such purpose. Family history made it natural that my dad’s  four decades of work at The Economist connected this with eastern productivity movements from beginning with 25 years of direct knowledge my maternal grandfather experienced of how Gandhi –encouraged by the practices of Maria Montessori and Einstein’s theoretical love of system designs that leaders employ to sustain next generations) used education to overthrow the poverty chains of ,local job destruction exponentialised over centuries of English colonization.


Next his reporting out of The Economist helped a world focus on how Japan of the 1960s exponentialised on of the most innovative half-generations ever seen – social action and free market reporting that was appraised as worthy of the Japanese Emperor’s award of the rising sun.


 In dad’s final years he found bangladesh to be the most inspiring case of all in raising questions on how digital technology and job creating youth empower each other. More that that the emergence of this new nation in the 1970s made it the first 100+ million [population to solve the 64 trillion $ puzzle of how to sustain microeconomics system designs of the way we choose to network globalization.



Most of the social innovation methods that create jobs do not fit with conventional disciplines nor the language that 20trh C macroeconomists used. So we need your help in linking ideas on job creation that are often much more similar than jargon and media hype makes them appear. We find it useful to classify 5 human sources of productivity; then to ask how these sources can multiply each other sustainably ; then interface these subsystems of how to design a job creating globalisation with the 5 main value demands. The sort of structure any transparent free market needs to integrate is illustrated in this 10 win table. We can use hyperlinking to drill down to concepts featured and compare similar ideologies that communities around the world have been experimenting with. Ultimately job creation is central to the economics of youth and investment in our next generation is the unique value of our human species. So we welcome everyone’s help in what is becoming the most urgent and exciting peoples exploration of the 2010s : creating jobs networks

 melanie I recall gunter was one of the speakers at the global summit in 2008- do any of your network connect around him; I gather from sofia he has started publishing weekly notes that will accumulate to potential creation of 100 milion jobs (blue economy)

love to find a way we could all learn from this and see if there is an intersection beween pauli and yunus nd other 100 millin job creators - eg ceo of ali baba


where does he live these days? I wonder if there is any way we can offer to help promote his ideas so the whole web accesses them; one small idea is that we will be distributing 1000 copies iof yunus new book; if we could get a small leaflet from gunter we could hand that out at same time



this seems to be where his wekly publicatiosn are going though it may require free login

in Hungry 2010s its not labour isnt working. its that job creation for we the people isn't working in any top-down parliament - help if you can: we need intercity job creation franchises

 social business of job creation - case write up by chris.macrae   washington DC tel 301 881 1655 (transparency note my family and I have invested a bit in this social business)

Which citizens franchises can be shared across cities to create jobs?

Sofia Bustamante created this social business after hosting dr yunus 69th birthday dialogue June 2009; she is a facilitator keen to maximise the contributions facilitators can make in cities by helping people understand social business models as a system design that empowers people and communities to create jobs; at the tme of the Nobel prize various Bangladeshi expatriates were encouraged by Dr Yunus to convene regular meetings on his methods; sofia and I both got to know the london rep of this process Mostofa Zaman – over the nearly 3 years that we have known him, he has become Dr Yunus lead coordinator of citizen and youth dialogues around social business

I don’t know of any social business franchises quite as simply to the point of encouraging citizens to take job creation into their own hands as Sofia’s though I am sure she would say she is there to learn and collaborate with any like minded facilitators across cities; for many years now she has accumulated intercity connections with hosts of hubs or other sustainability agendas, so we are hoping that something similar to londoncreativelabs will have local representation in about 50 cities within 12 months; ideas on how to strengthen job creation networks by citizens most welcome

Our washington dc bureau of journalists - tel usa 301 881 1655 loves to hear and help action you ideas

coming soon - please help us add to 09/10 projects

dear paul -you wouldn't mind would you?

I believe you mentioned that the uk has a billion dollar of funds for regenerating communities and with impact you are aiming to propose microcredit-type experiements in this regard

firstly if this is correct , how soon could you, zasheem, sofia, someone from impact and I meet -perhaps with lord kinnock or someone from british council and nazrul from spain?

secondly, can we start an experienced email discussion group on this subject around you

third - just as a conversatiion starter : it seems to me that there is a model worth debating; it connects microcredit, mrs begum almost free vocational training centres and microcredit employment agency services with a few twists

twist 1 I assume that a vocational centre could be designed around either what jobs a community has not enough applicants of (eg informal nursing in many places) or a very specific skill that place had but which it is in danger of losing

twist 2 alongside this an exchange scheme could be set in motion so that nearly free lodging could be found for a young person if there was a real reason why she or he had to go to another community for traiming because her or his own didnt offer it

twist 3 entry to vocational training schemes could be offered first to those whose afmily long-standing are members of a community bank

twist 4 - if I recall , there's a new law coming in to force in the Uk within a few years that goves any young person who chooses the irght to education until 18 inmstead of 16; better get vocation edu centres erady in time 

-twist 5 : when it comes to true microcredit banking there's a branded idea of how goodwill multiplies thatg we are missing in not getting microcredit banks started in developed nations; this is that with grameen bangladesh's favourite brand,  whenever it launches a new branch the better off section of the community are happy to put their own deposits in the bank because it has both a great reputation for regenerating community and a good safe depeosit rate and is the nation's most trusted brand - guess I need to know more about yunus movie vocabulary and identifiers before the global brand name becomes clear; in the UK Elizabetha bank has a fine mobile capital heritage to it

Here are some ideas world apprentices & collaboration researchers have seen working inter-locally  

What else can youth -and everyone who loves community and sustaining decent work - help spread through every city hive, hub, or center (as microcredit calls its 125000 hubs in bangladesh). Help me make a more inviting script out of them

1 Banking that invests in Productivity. Banking that invests and is owned by the community; by those who most need work in the community; by those who want to invest in the community's next generation

2 Valuing Green. Solar is a perfect local & labour intensive model but one where no profit extraction is going ot a big city above the community and where local people help each other out with after-service. Vlaluing green also demands citiznen debates on what is the market not costing what future sustainbility needs it to be compounding- ie if the cost of carbon was fully taxed we would have moved over to solar by now and be both socilaly and economically thriving instead of drowing in more and more dirt

3 Value as much as possible service- in the community governance. First ask yourself in what is this a different system round than local government then national government, thyen continental government. Ultimately local government isnt afraid of serving people. It doesnt erect false standards. Nowhere is this more obvious than education. Today our schools educate only on "knowns" they can examine whereas the future is changing so fast that action learning unkowns is more valuable to youth and next generation than being in a glut of history known rules; and self-confidence to micro-entrepreneur create is more valuable than sitting inside classrooms ivory towers being ordered by one old person who probably doesnt clich online as curiously as teenagers could if they first knew how to search how to praticipate bin production instead of buying other cenelbrity's images.

Help us undesrtand views from all over the world. The places that most need to study other system round job creation are those where superpower has taken over from by the people for the people

 Can we prepare for a new year's resolution 2009 of futuresunited ? Let's celebrate The End of The White House - and revel in The Begining of Rainbow House. If Obama wins, his number 1 campaign promise uniting citizens is: to create 5 million green jobs. National government can't actually do that but it can provide the evolutionary conditions which alow microeconomics to bloom.

Cheer on community facilitated markets investing in local productivity and the diversity instead of lowest common denominator global standards. Interestingly, Obama has spemt his working life in america's primary region of microcredit networks and his mother founded microcredit institutes in Indonesia before that was fashionable. Shhh - don't mention micrcoredit on the campaign trail as something as fioreing as that would be the kiss of death in american media. But just as in Jan 2001 every globalisation oilman installed their own people in washington dc for 8 years; it is possible to imagine Jan 2009 being the opportunity for every microcredit woman and green energeising youth to hlep joyously change the white house.

current correspondence july 09:

sylvain- I am in washington dc and have not been able to match your real time agenda; however I know several people across cities and countries who are very interested in job-creating questions as they apply to their city or community and can be resolved by bangladeshi micrpcredit methods which are the exact opposite community banking - and bottom-up investment in jobs - the exact opposite system from wall street's rule ;

understanding how to change this will be one of the core quiestions we aim to animate round 5000 youth ambassadors during the college year 09/10; do you or peers share an interest in this approach; if so let start introducing each other

Dear Sofia (To anyone else concerned with exploring following please phone world citizen jobs creation bureau washington dc 301 881 1655 )


Please hit reply button to indicate you have read this, and assuming some of it is worth questioning make a specifically timed skype or other appointment to discuss it  you and I need to sit down for a day an map out what we know about job destruction that is similar in terms of system failures; I am sure there is a lot more that we can explicitly agree on once we have sketched maps than we disagree on; I hope we have mutual care of each other that you trust we can do this a deux but if eg you need Judy to make it a threesome lets do that 

there are 2 "forbidden lines" on inquiry I want to brainstorm with you urgently so they inform and replicates across cities


life in day of child growing up to maximise job flow- I have been thinking a lot about this since my daughter was 8 now 12 and it blended a lot with what we were learning from world citizen guides on education; I first started research how learning happens on internet in mid 1970s; which is also written up in the 1984/5 stories of dad and my book I gave you ; my own guinea pigs at Leeds University were female university psychology students who were only 3 years younger than me;

very strange too what I learnt about the errors in psychology literature/theory –largely American dominated to this day and which start with top down generalization (judy's tick box stuff) not interfacing bottom up cultural diversity the way nature does and incidentally the way Einstein and Gandhi and Montessori as team-mates said the maths of innovation flows by to creating more grounded (theory) space whenever conventional wisdom is too crowded for all to work with let alone be examined by; whenever job-edu space is crowded go mire micro to innovate; once you have found a low cost micro solution open source macro (ie scale up using worldwide tech of webs and mobiles) the extreme hot nature of interactive learning and doing by computer; and what happens as often did when a class of liberated women rioted – ie stopped using the computer until I told a few stories that got them started again (my role was to sit in a corner and only intervene if a woman was bout to throw a book through the terminal screen – something early trials had shown can happen) however more recently what you and I learnt from our year of editing world citizen guides while I was also thinking of my 10-12 year olds schooling experiences included: before 12 or start of adolescence ie when youth start going round in what could be teams but will otherwise be gangs or being isolated from any group behaviors 

Montessori shows that it helps if every child is experienced to "teaching" youngers; there is a lot more in action learning literature which I have friends at bath university who have been inquiring on this for 20 years - Alan rayner and whitehead being 2 people who if you have many years of my emails in your inbox you can search; as far back as 1997 I spent a year moderating by hand a 200 person group on organizing creativity -eg there work on communities of practice was newly emerging and some of the people there went on to create software like blogs and other stuff when was a 3000 person live discussion group; as so often only about 1% of the human ideas that were emerging ever got built on;  if you like this could have been an early version of tav's 24 dynamics the www could have been designed round if collaboration was the big new advantage but wasn’t;

somehow we need to make a large laboratory of school kids back to this – lucknow and New Zealand

are the 2 places we could do this and if we could get yunus and mrs begum experiencing a day of this I am sure it would turn the banker for the poor back into being the world’s number 1 open educator instead of being the world’s number 1 hans; after all it has always been the interaction between yunus and mrs begum that made job creation investment in both illiterate women and their children united as a double loop; no mrs begum no grameen now with hundred of thousands of job creating alumni  accepting the challenge as yunus says in his Indian talk that their duty is to create jobs not to accept jobs that other people have made; that is an extraordinary potential alumni group though oddly just like grameen doesn’t connect interns it doesn’t put enough connections in between its own village alumni presumably cos poor old mrs begum running the inside culture of grameen literally doesn’t have a second not any tech people to help her design that 

Back in 1997 Organising Creativity Network - an egroup before egroups - it went through a lot of these things from youth education to places worth working at to whether digital would make workplaces better or worse (one of the 10 largest brand companies in the world (still the number 1 textbook paradigm n usa) assumed afer surveying 15 peer companies around 1996  it would make innovation many times easier and more fun for all workers - 7 years later they hired me to interview everyone of how it went worse) , and in those days of no spam very experienced people had time to join in;

this is also why I value yunus flow belief that we are all born with creativity inside but most of us don’t get time or mentoring focus to unpack it and understand its job creating relevance; we never will in schooling systems designed around the colonial model that assume that 1% need to be trained to reach the top to rule over others and 99% should be discarded along the way for failing examinations n spurious facts that no longer have anything to much ado with job creating in a web collaboration age sunita finds that what cross-cultural-demo awareness/confidence you have at 12 you take with you through life so this needs embedding as the 5th r in curriculum Harrison Owen has proved kids are quite able do pen  space on what do we need to know next about life development, and I see collaboration cafes as a format that could be hosted by 11 year olds up at school breaks; especially if there was an intranet that 11 year olds could use to match who wanted to discuss what (as you may recall when I spent 3 hours interviewing Harrison Owen in 2004 – his stories included as early as 1984 trying to discuss with those who run mbas that they needed to open space how mbas learn , and that even then 95% they were taught to top-down administration  was wrong for the coming knowledge age  people to self-organize and collaborate around); remember too that Harrison evolved open space out of being a world wide conference organizer for 3 years of annual summits of organizational transformation system design people of the early 1980s –if only what they had started to explore through systems even had equal voice to what universities management schools have been compounding the other way round all through globalization; or if you like all through the period since 1983 that the first social business design was formally instituted by law (as grameen bank Bangladesh statute ); if only Harrison and yunus and mrs begum had know each other, where coo jobcreating edu could be now; where might yunus centres be collaborating instead of competing to hans education (Harrison trained in the quaker tradition had himself learnt circle style action learning observing people in local communities in Africa while in the us peace corps; after complaints from the first 2 worldwide conferences that the coffee breaks were better than the podium speeches- he startled the 500 who came to the 3rd annual org transformation meeting for around the world by saying there are no speaker, only pen space with its one rule of 2 feet – I doubt that any facilitator in the world has unperformed such a daring stage which is why I also do not sponsor facilitation tools that are ultimately complex not see through simple to map or charter) in new  zealand the one place that has experimented with dad and my learning views since 1984 (though recently china has bought 10 million books based n new zealand transformation if education), and mine arose from 3 years of testing in the 1970s for the uk national dev project where we effectively put 4000 students on a live interactive experience, they have turned the typical classroom by age 12 into youtube reporters; questioners of every issue instead of learning by heart dummies of lazy teaching unions; what's more exciting is that when you have the new Zealand system in place, once you reach teens there is a country wide competition on what are the next jobs that youth need to create we know from what we were mapping in world citizen guides that you would have vocational hubs and employment agencies owned by youth; in effect the last 2-3 years of any schooling should focus around peer to peer apprenticeships; this segments as a particular need for those not going to higher education, while this that are should be practising how to use yunus type social action business models when they have 3 years together at university there could also be virtually moderated worldwide classes of 12s, 13s ,14s each age up - where children in places that were doing well in job creation were quizzed by children in communities that were not doing well I am sure that if you sat back for 30 minutes and wrote up your own life in a day of it world have different words be much more human and meaningful than my words above  have commonalities in it; investing a lot in your process as I am surely it make senses to share what knowledge and passion we have that is common about job creation TACIT PROCESS STREAM NUMBER 2

INCONVENIENT TRUTH OF BEING GOVERNED OVERBefore world war 2 uk and usa governments had less than 25% money from taxes; after world war 2 this went up to 45% and has stayed there; the 2 main extra costs investing in arms races; controlling people by television (it was extremely bad timing (ask of you need dad’s youtube on this or his1964  book sunshades in October on the next danger once the people lose public servants is that these former servants start hiring economists to make numbers prove they should be governing over that I gave both zasheem and yunus ) that Britain invented broadcasting and was keeping it social business public before the war but then had no money after the war to keep it public so in uk it got governed over whilst usa sold out the commons t rampant commercialism and in that one decision started to compound the opposite of every freedom and happiness that being the opposite of English colonialists had won through declaring independence – the joy of being free to job create is what that charter is about and also why the French coined the word entrepreneur at the same time and why a scot started The Economist in 1843 in what became the transformation of vested interest parliament and a monarchy only interested in the sustainability of upper classes) which in various ways is what happens when tv and lobbies take over making public servants one dimensional gurus who cant afford to turn round on one dimension issue views stated even as ruling the world by one dimensions (particularly that of how much money did a system extract each quarter) is the perfect system design for compounding the end of substantiality of every living system SO the scale of the intervention needed before we can get back to job creating communities is roughly take back 20% of the 45% spent by government and have it spent on social business designs; to do that you (or whomever is yunus chief connector in London) will need relationships in ever source of power; if you like we can map the plan this way Work out yunus 12 global collaboration partners game –test this with him particularly as the model used in turning Olympics into a fringe festival of social business happenings; in parallel start seeing what the big city equivalent of the 12 collaboration partner windows are if communities n that city are to lead job creation futures and connect the rough tacit understanding that your and my life’s work on how to use markets to job create  At you age if you are ever to bring up a family and have enough precious time to connect all you know you should do what fazle abed does; you should believe absolutely in small is beautiful but large scale replication is absolutely essential ; you should be at the epicentre of thousands of small is beautiful experiments in job creation; visiting a few , knowing how facilitators collected data but not spending 90% of your time doing that; you are needed to storytell which experiments match which collaboration partners who have resources and could create jobs if they empowered each other to turn their own system bottom up and interfacing rather than top down and separated You get one shot at this by becoming someone yunus trust as much as he trusts anyone in any city; I don’t understand that ultimate element bof modesty in you that seems to keep on avoiding that is the you to be now; if you think that the real you is another character help me understand what that other character is – I am hear to learn who you are just like I try and learn who yunus is , who begum is , who dipal is , who kazi is, who latifee is – all of you are people worth being inside each others heads of- for which I thank you 

And if the deal you want to make with me is that in terms of all being inside each others heads, tav needs to be too- I can understand that, I would be delighted (assuming you would be delighted) if you have children with him as long as your family has positive cash flow; either the two of you come to oars for 3 days while I am over there or tag on an extra 3 days in la over above that needed to celebrate csuci, understand holly and Melanie, and if possible start interviewing enough silicon valley firms that they want us to host a yunus open space with them- tell me what it is you really want and then I can start mapping better than if you are too shy to tell me what your life’s whole purpose is

the greatest boost to productivity a place can generate
P1 -  

Children are the greatest investment people and  nations make. Looked at from 1984, the internet could have been an opportunity to reform the job-creating productivity of children’s education

Here are a few places where this is happening (New Zealand) (Lucknow India) - further ref

 (mail to help improve our list 

In most developed nations education isn’t designed for children’s future job creation, and is reducing their productive potential. Which of these crises applies to where you live


Governments are interested in avoiding blame by setting standards- ones which assume like the days of top-down empire that most schooling systems are time warped in -  only one correct way of being smart


children are being examined to death just when accelerating pace of change needs them to be experts at being curious


the last thing I want my daughter to be is a know it all; today the smart thing is to know what you don’t know and where relevant develop networking peers whose knowhow you can win-win with


loss of family and community structures makes it ever more vital that children work in groups with each other so that all are cross-culturally confident before becoming teenagers; but this practice time has next to zero per cent allocated to it in school timetables

Entrepreneurship Party & Priviatization
My understanding (from 30 years of observation and research of the world's most famous brand companies) is that the most purposeful -and job creating - organisational systems need sustained and deep context rich leadership

I cant imagine why anyone would think that a national government (if in doubt see dad's oxford union debate with michael foot ) would have the time or competence to make consistent entrepreneurial leadership decisions of lots of different businesses. How much work can one cabinet of a dozen men cope with?

Worse research of change -including that I did in co-authoring the benchmark 1984 work on why the internet was the greatest chnage ever to hit a single generation worldwide  confirms the bon mots: much less change happens in 3 years than media punidits and the twittering classes expect, much more compounds in 7 years.

This exponential dynamic should make us extremely wary of trusting business leadership decisions - on which a nation's future prosperity and job creation depends - to governments that need to curry re-election favours every 4 or 5 years.

The precediung remarks leave with me with the fun of a paradox. Absolutely excited to discover where great privatization system designs are developed; know from my work at a global management consulatncy at the start of the 1990s these system transfromations cannot come from professions who see privitization as an excuse to jump out of the fat of government run business into the lean of the most manic of quarterly numbers driven business men

By great good fortune, Bangladesh's most entrepreneurial spirits at the time of the country's birth did not trust big post-colonial government. So they innovated The Entrepreneurship Prty as a non-political grassroots movement and have empowered the greatest privatization busienss model (Social Business) designs that I have been able to find in 34 years of searching. Sustainability investment's magic trick was to put ownership in trust of those of most long-term and lifecritical need of a system's purpose and leadership in charge of those who want to empower the productive ability of every person and every youth to discover the creativity and microentrepreneurial service capabilities they were born with.

In 2010 thgs recognition of The ENTREPRENEURSHIP Party as the most inspiring dynamic we have for job creation has spread across 60 countries with the first annual presidential summit on Entrepreneurship

Productivity Revolutions : Agricultural; Industrial; Service; Knowledge Collab
Governments and other top down social instututions in developed countries haven't changed systemicly for hundreds of years regarding microeconomic and smart two-way communications impacts on communities, family and youth- this has distastrous compound conseqeuences not least on the macroeconomic theories of experts they hire to justify their continuation to power over people. It spawns non-economic professional rule and destroys possibilities of new job creation

Changing communications, and what makes people distant, bossy, etc

Changing national politics

Changing economics

Changing employment

Changing education

During the thing revolutions of agriculutural and industrial machinery, there was some justification in safety and other machine things needing top down command and control, with huge ca;pital costs of investment planning

by the fourth quarter of the 20th century developed nations were mainly service econmomies- but bigt systems and professional rules stuill havent changer to truly empower service teamwork energies and joy of service

when it comes to knowledge economies - where value is multiplied in use through collaboration and the chance to go way above history's zero sum consumption and scarcity models we need economics to dare to innovate istelf by inviting youth to mediate it; we have been slow off the ground in the first 20 years of the www; this makes the 2010s the most exciting decade when we map how to design integartion of every locality productivity into a win-win-win global. Do that and an order of magnitude increase in human productivity can help us communally resolve all the most chalengingh sustainbility goals. Fail to do that and we will expeontially hasten the Orweellin Big Brother age in which less than 1% of youth are entrepreneurially free to make the most productivity of their own greatrest competences.

Social Startup Labs

Social Startup Lab is a practical day for people who want to make a lasting social impact in their communities. For those who think they can do something to make it real, and want to do it in a way that connects up with what others are doing and what is already happening. 

During the day we will give you a toolkit for turning your ideas for improving your community into action and, potentially, a new startup that makes social change and has market impact 

We will offer an opportunity to share ideas for action to create the communities we want to live in and a chance to learn more about your own ability to make social change for you and others. 

There won't be work left for us unless we create it.


What are the benefits in coming along? 

  • Learn by doing! Learn how urgent unmet social needs can create opportunities for new and/or existing social ventures that meet these needs, using the resources we already have. 
  • Get a sense of the bigger picture of how the opportunities connect up with each other 
  • Learn how to exploit those opportunities by applying techniques from "Lean Startups" to create low risk, low cost "Social Startups" with robust business models for delivering inclusive products and services. We will use the simple but powerful Business Model Canvas outline. 
  • Learn how to test the market for your prospective Social Startup by performing a Social Action together with a group within a week of attendance. 
  • Discover your Inner Entrepreneur
  • Meet people from different backgrounds who are up for making a difference. Get support in forming a team or join one on the day. 
  • Take away practical tools for turning collaboration up to the max both in your workplace and in your communities.

Do we really do all of the above in one day? 

Yes.  Come and see it to believe it. This is not about talking. It is about acting together, as individuals, but in a connected way so that we make the most of what we have as a whole. It will be  fun and focused. We see this as the future design approach to our communities. Rock up and make your mark! 

Who Will be there

A diverse mix of committed local people plus some of the best doers and thinkers from the wider London networks

Jargon Buster 

Social Action       get something done together in a week 

Social Startup      a startup that has a social purpose 

Social Business   a business that is designed to achieve a social purpose 

What do you mean by Lab?

Simple Description: a bunch of people with different skill sets come together to fix something!

This is easy to understand for a physical thing like mending a wall. But for social things it can get a lot more tricky as some of what is broken is difficult to see. Social problems are connected with financial ones and also with our physical locations. In our communities a lot goes to waste because we cannot see how to things are connected up. 

In the Labs we get to see how things connect up, so that our solutions can be much stronger. We get to come up with solutions and get them in motion there and then.

Labs are not a completely new idea. London Creative Labs is pioneering in taking these labs deep into the heart of local communities and maximising participation from the local community in designing their own solutions to common problems. 

Why bother solving problems at all? Well mainly because we think massive opportunities come out of doing this. Opportunities at all levels: from work, to play, to connection, to community. What we need now is to see the opportunity that things like funding cuts, and recession bring. We can make better use of what we have, for a start. The Labs are where we do this and work out how together how we can all benefit in the process.

This is a London Creative Labs production!

why not develop some shared presentation formats. An example of a perspective I think is being missed in case analysis of social business system designs, ie by jobs created

Of course the big one is :

microcredit 100 million directly www (ie microcreditsummit goal) , many more million indirectly because of impact microcredit has at local community level, plus next generation -eg village children now growing up literate

microenergy - we know grameen shakti aims to create 100000 green jobs for villagers -incidentally anyone know what happened to obama's 5 million community green jobs; we're not reviewing clean energy from community up perspective - our media virtually bans it

grameen nurse institute - I reckon this could generate 100,000+ nurse jobs in bangladesh, and perhaps the model can extend to any developing country with not enough nurses

Grameen Danone - it is claimed that each village danone factory ceates 1000 jobs and an admittedly optimistic forecast is 50 village franchises over the decade;  that could be 50,000 but wait is this a model fore local food production rather than the absurd ecology of manufactiuing food in one national factory and then having to distribute product back to localities

Otto factory the future ..

perhaps the biggest is mobile/internet for the poor - here its china CEO of ali baba (china's ebay) whose set down the gauntley of 100 million social business jobs for china; I think we are missing the fact that once someone has a virtual market like ebay, they can replicate the software for any number of micromarkets designed round free market exchanges in the community and around the poorest -- very interested in any particular interpretations you make of your brochures's headline quote - what if you could harness power of free market to solve the problems of poverty, hunger, inequality

Obama job summit countdown day minus 10
blog from ABC news
-With the Obama Administration set to convene a job summit next week, further indications that the jobs problem may be with us for awhile. The Fed released the minutes from their last central bank meeting-held Nov. 3 and 4-and Dan Arnall reports: “During the discussion, Bernanke & Co. heard from their staff economists who predicted a ‘strengthening of the recovery,’ which would be supported by improving financial markets, household wealth and continued improvement in confidence. But the gradual nature of the recovery wouldn’t lead to a quick recovery of the more than 7 million jobs lost during the downturn. Most of the policymakers held that it could take 5-6 years to get the economy and job market back on a track to consistent growth.”

download value multiplication brief on how to interview the way the economist's unacknowledged giant did?

Norman Macrae (CBE, Japan Order of Rising Sun with Gold B ars) wrote for The Economist for 40 years mainly as economics editor and deputy editor. His last article was written December 2008 in celebration of the microeconomist Dr Muhammad Yunus, and the formal publication of this op-ed was circulated among alumni of the launch of Global Grameen - this aims to be the world's number 1 partnership brand on the primary economics & sustainability crises of 2010s starting with 2010 year of Job Creation. Chris Macrae Washington DC bureau of WorldClassBrands 301 881 1655

Norman Macrae’s last article - an op-ed celebrating Dr Yunus How to Avert A Great Depression Through the Hungry 2010s? 

Answer, By Making All Banking Very Much Cheaper

 If banks in rich democracies had been truly competitive institutions, at least one of them somewhere would have seized the main opportunity created by the computer. This main opportunity was to make all deposit-banking vastly cheaper than ever before. By this cheapening it should make such banking hugely more profitable. Then further competition would search for the cheapest ways to guide all the world’s saving into the most profitable (or otherwise most desirable) forms of capital investment, thus enriching all mankind. Instead, during 2008 the total losses of banks in rich democracies – in North America, West Europe and Japan – soared into tens of trillions of dollars. Fearful for their solvency, these banks virtually stopped lending. The issuance of corporate bonds, commercial paper, and many other financial products largely ceased. Hedge and insurance firms also crashed. Mankind is thus threatened in the 2010s with its longest great depression since the hungry 1930s. Why? The strange answer seems to be that other happy consequences of modern technology promised to make this cheapening even faster. Call centres in Bangalore vastly undercut the middle class salaries of Midland bank clerk who until the 1950s expensively answered clients’ questions in their branches in the City of London. Cheap mobile phones kept village ladies in once miserable Bangladesh as fully in touch with market prices as is the chief research officer of the First National Bank of Somewhere in California. His weekly salary is still 1000 times greater than the previous annual earnings of that village lady. The cost-effective way of running the old Midland or First National then seemed to be to cut its total salary cost by something like 99%. This did not please Western welfare governments, or the decent chief executives of the old Midland or First National bank.

Awaiting the sensation of a short sharp shock

From a cheap and chippy chopper on a big black block – WS Gilbert in The Mikado - why it is uncomfortable to work in an industry which needs 99% redundancies.
 Western welfare governments have long preferred to run their banks in high cost cartels, and even invented reasons why this seems to be moral.  Their deposit-banks have usually kept in cash only 10% of the total amount deposited with them. If 11% of depositors suddenly feared that their banks might go bust, this could accelerate a run that would send them bust indeed. Governments therefore thought that depositors would be less fearful if they were assured that the banks were officially and tightly regulated. Actually, this mainly meant that the banks had to hire ever more expensive lawyers so as to escape any crippling consequences from this regulation. The attached quote shows that Samuel Pepys understood this fact of life in his Diaries of July 21, 1662.

I see it is impossible for the King to have things done so cheaply as do other men

 – Samuel Pepys on discovering an important commercial fact of life in his Diary, 21 July, 1662
The decent bosses of the deposit banks felt that the best way of avoiding sacking nine tenths of their staffs was by competing with a very different sort of financing called merchant banking whose earnings and bonuses were far more generous than those given to their own staff. These merchant banks were of peculiarly differing pedigree. In London, it was assumed that they could best be run by families like Barings who had done the job for over 200 years. In the 1990s, Barings went totally bust because one of its hired traders bet much of its money on a hunch that a bad earthquake in Japan meant that the shares of Japanese banks and insurance companies would become more profitable. In Zurich, merchant banks felt it most moral to keep the accounts of their depositors totally secret, especially if these accounts were being used to defraud their own countries’ tax authorities. In 2008 those secretive banks were then defrauded. In Wall Street, Goldman Sachs and Lehman Bros bid up their annual bonuses to millions of dollars for each partner. In 2008 even Goldman Sachs made a loss and Lehman Bros went bust. A former chairman of the Federal Reserve argues that “fearful investors clearly require a far larger capital cushion to lend unsecured to any financial intermediary now”. He therefore thinks that taxpayers money should be ladled into them to make those investors less fearful. This seems far more likely to make depositors intermittently more terrified and cause any depression into the 2010s to linger on and on.

In the 1930s, the chief economic adviser to the government of Siam was called Prince Damrong. I try always to remember it

– quote from former director of International Monetary Fund.
 Large banks mislending to the rich have run into losses that have created the slump. Politicians, thinking they are saving the world, are mislending huge sums to these mislenders and will eventually make the slump worst. One of the few big banks to make a profit in 2008 was the Grameen Bank (which means Village Bank) in that once basket-case country called Bangladesh. The sole staff in a branch serving several villages was once a woman student. It is now more usually someone who has learnt to use the computer in the right way.  How to create cost-cutting banks?  START IN A STARVING VILLAGEThe Nobel peace prize for 2006 was controversially awarded, in Oslo, to a “banker for the poor” in usually unfashionable Bangladesh. Since the microcredit system pioneered by this Dr Muhammad Yunus really has lifted record millions of Bangladeshi women from the world’s direst poverty, some of the world’s toughest tycoons have thrilled to his stated aim to “harness the powers of the free market to solve the problems of poverty”. 

To his fans’ delight and astonishment, he is achieving exactly that. In the past quarter of a century, his Grameen Bank has lent (without collateral or lawyers) increasing billions of dollars to millions of poor women in the previously starving villages of Bangladesh, and got an extraordinary 99% repayment back. His often illiterate customers have started millions of successful small businesses in unimagined fields like mobile telephone ladies and saleswomen of the world’s cheapest yogurt. All these successes have been won by keeping costs incredibly low. A banking operation that would cost Goldman Sachs $100 in New York or London would cost Grameen in Bangladesh well under 100 cents.

This is a huge development in human history. Money can now be directly channeled into productive use by the world’s poorest people, while unsuccessful lending to the rich has caused a world slump. How do we switch custom to cost-cutting banks?

 During Bangladeshi’s terrible famine year of 1974, Dr Yunus ( who had won his doctorate in economics in a free market American university, which most founders of banks have not done)  came back to his 1940 birthplace of Chittagong, as professor of economics at the university there. He started lecturing on his republic’s 5 year plan, which like most 5 year plans was economic nonsense. In search of reality he took a field party of his students to one of the nearby famine threatened villages. His group analysed that all 42 of the village’s small businesses (such as tiny farm plots and market stalls) were  indeed going bust unless they could borrow a tiny total $27 on reasonable terms. The first thought was to give the $27 as charity. But Yunus lectured that a social business dollar, which had to be paid back after careful use in an income generating activity was much more effective than a charity dollar, which might be used only once and frittered away.  The careful use of loans in very small quantities, says Yunus “means that you bring in a business model, you become concerned about the costs, the revenue, how to bring more efficiency, new technology, how to redesign, every year you review the whole thing. Charity doesn’t bring that whole package”. Mercifully, all those first 42 tiny loans were fully repaid, and lent back. After 9 years of further experiments, Yunus in 1983 founded his Grameen Bank. Its priority was to make loans that were desperately needed by those of the poor that did repay them. Indeed, he argues that “access to credit is a human right so long as that credit is repaid”. This is the reverse of the usual banking priority, which is first (and in credit crunches only) to make the safest loans those to the rich that can provide collateral. In these last 25 years, Grameen has provided increasing $billions of loans to poor people with that astonishing 99% repayment rate. In 2006, it had 7 million borrowing customers, 97% of them women, in 140,000 villages of Bangladesh. Microcredit had by then reached 80% of Bangladesh’s poorest rural families. Over half of  Grameen’s own borrowers had successful small businesses. The women borrowers predominated because they usually are the poorest people in rural Islam and proved best in paying back. When a Grameen bank manager goes to a new village, he has entrepreneurially to seek for poor but viable borrowers. He earns a star if he achieves 100% repayment of loans, and other stars if his customers are fulfilling most of the 16 guarantees that all customers are asked to pledge, ranging from intensive vegetable growing, through sending all their children to school, to renouncing dowries. A branch with no stars would be in danger of closing, so borrowers rally round with suggestions, such as which unreliable repayers to exclude. Borrowers from the bank who do repay are called owners of the bank and receive incentives such as opportunities for insurance, and for winning university scholarships for their children. 

Microcredit will play a part in solving some problems that statesmen won’t yet believe. Having demonstrated how to free the global market of banking to value sustainability,  watch out for Dr Yunus’ idea of global social business partnerships designed round freeing other global sectors’ sustainability.
