|Oral Rehydration: knowledge sharing recipe for saving millions of infant lives -the most impactful of all pre-digital microfranchises?|
Oral Rehydration empowers parent to save an infant who will otherwise die of diarrhea - free cure depends on mixing boiled water, salt and sugar in correct proportion in time to rehydrate
Help us map who would have missed what if oral rehydration microfranchsie had not been found and openly networked
About one in 4 infants would still die of diarrhea in poor rural humid nations
Cultures would have persisted in expecting mothers to bear 6 plus children (sometimes as many as 15) leaving village women neither the respect of developing their own livelihood nor the personal and social networking joy of saving their infants' lifes
|.Consequences - the grassroots networks structures emerged from oral rehydration networking empowered 15 million poorest village mothers (and their children)to develop the nation of Bangladesh. -see stories of BRAC and Grameen|

Cases of other lowest cost solutions: orphan drugs, survivors of infectious diseases (eg Tuberculosis) get hired as last mile healthworkers- mobile connectivity and smarter schools curricula could now end nurseless villages creating at least 10 million dream jobs for poorest village girls- but NB how all these life-saving services has so little money in it compared to Big Health that many macroeconomists negatively value all this- more
BRAC and Grameen Bangladesh's first quarter century ( and world's last pre-digital quarter) wouldnt have invented development's bottom-up and new economic paradigm (Clinton Interview on PBS) triangularising the development of 3 services for people who started with no resources:
rural health service out of nothing
village education out of nothing
financing livelihood apprenticeships (around village mothers and by redesigning markets value chains to celebrate their rising productivity and communal group-power as goodwill and sustainability activists)
The UN (and trillion dollars invested by Turner family in opening up UN to engaging citizens) wouldnt have seen its first example of subnetwork being empowered bottom -up (UNICEF James Grant) and today BRAC University's most proud school wouldnt be named James Grant School of Public Health
Soros (and his open society and ineteconomics alumni) wouldnt have learnt frm PIH, BRAC and the start of partnering in mobile empowerment; its unlikely that eg pih and ghdonline would have developed the capacity by 2014 to fill in the missing links of end ebola
millennials would not have been able to question economists about their awareness of Oral Rehydration to see which of Keynes 3 segments (reference last 5 pages of Keynes General Theory - discuss at www.mathsclubs.cm )
1 goodwillE: designers of futures that compound end of poverty and celebrate investing in youth sustainability
2 badwill E- hire themselves out to who pays most to design externalisition and extraction systems in such a way that society (and its public servants) dont understand sustainability's local deadlines
3 blindwillE- since any purposeful value exchange is tensely deigned around win-win trustflows -mapping back a Big Hairy Audacious Goal that unites the trusts in above zero-sum mapping by all stakeholders- ahead of time risk of change auditing is needed ; over time the dynamic consequences are that blindwill economist unknowingly get linked in to badwill economists

blog co-editors wanted http://yunuscity.blogspot.com In a world record event staged by the Principal of Glasgow University and coordinated by the extraordinry Zsheem Ahmed to whom a billion thanks are surely due - nearly 30 social business collaborators made 7 minute presentations to Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus. In the 5 hour marrathon interaction aka the inaugural microeconomics summit, Dr Yunus graciously summed up by asking everyone to come back next year having first tried one hour social action sessions to develop the seed of taking 10 people off welfare.
On July 5 the news had reached Gordon Brown that Yunus was in town who asked for a 30 mimiute audience at Glasgow Caledonian his first employer. Glasgow Cal launched the extraordinry social business professorship focused on micro health care system designs and micro credit with Cam Donaldson’s Chair and thanks to Principal Pamela Gillies made further headlines as Glasgow become the main European Lab for launching Grameen Style microcredit banking. Glasgow is now way up the premier league of future twin capitals of Dhaka’s sustainability games decade emulated perhaps only by Paris who delegted the strongest of international contingents.

GLASGOW MAKES IT OFFICIAL
In search of 2010s as most exciting decade to be alive: Major collaboration platforms launched at GlobalAssembly with Dr Yunus at 7th Decade wishmaking day – 4 July 2010, Glsgow Uni.
1 Yunus Memorandum of agreement in which Principal of Glasgow University signs up to become the first major university to commit to review every course module and add in social business modeling wherever salient. We are optimistic this process will confirm that if Adam Smith had been alive today he would of wished to be Dr Yunus and vice versa.
2 Journal of Social Business to be edited out of glasgow and majority owned as social business by centre for dev scotland –next action we wish to survey through this mail: what would ceos and yunus see as the perfect 7 papers in a showcase first issue
3 Norman Macrae foundation will hub out of Glsgow Uni s home centre: linking in wherever social business or other clubs want to offer small essay prizes on forbidbidden questions (ones conventional mindsets censor). Sinec 1976 (The economist 25 Dec) dad’s 10 green bottle survey has recorded the 10 most urgent conventional mindsets to breakthrough as entrepreneurial revolutionaries unite their social action callings
we thank Glasgow University for offering to be the future’s centre of archives of such competitions and look forward to student social business clubs and hubs nominating potential essay prize titles; we would love to see the essay and the social action prizes yunus youth ambassadors need become one and the same competition -= see the annual MIT ideas model but www.journalistsforhumanity.com www.saintjames.com can only start with the practice competences they know how to host.

The Swedish Employers Confederation asked me to write this naughty little book in 1992-3, because in 1982-1983 my son and I were writing a wider and naughtier one that was first published in Britian 1984 as The 2024 Re4port - a concise history of the future http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html
In this previous future history there was one main event of the 1980s. Communism disappeared. We forecast the fall of the Berlin Wall as happening Heilige Nacht, Christma Eve, 1989. Since in real life it came down six weeks earlier, I hope that this cheerful future history of Sweden is also six weeeks too pesimistic.
|The main event of 1990-2010 in the previous book was that the world's 60 year spasm of big government disappeared. We stopped letting politicians spend the absurd 45% of GNP in countries like Britain, and the even absurder 69% of GNP which you Swedes at one stage in the 1980s allowed. We all came down to more like the 10% of GNP spent through government in America in 1929. In this book I may let you Swedes spend about 15% of your money though ;politicians in 2015, but you will be much wiser no to.|
In 2000-2020 the main event in the other book was that braninworkers (which in educated countries came to mean almost all workers) turned into telecomm\uters, with huisband and wife often working through screens in their own home, and even children (as in farming days) having useful chores to do. This led back to a more sturdily individualisty rather than dreamily communal Folkhemmet, to the reversal of what Hans Zetterberg called the post-1968 trend when "being young began to be thought better than being a mature adult - a dangerous situation for any civilisation", to a transfer back of many caring services from socialist state bureaucracies to conservative family love, to the desirable (anyway much more efficient) commercuialisation instead of politiciasation of local government, wonderful choices of worldwide lifestyles, all; sorts of marvellous things like that. I dare to hope you Swedes will be fierecly Viking-like in grasping at this freer post-industrial society, just as you were probaly the wisest and gentlest in creating the most decent and fair industrial society 1870-1970. At any rate, in this future history of 1995-2015 you begin to cope very well.
|THE MIDDLE CLASSES (II)|
by Charles Handy, Norman Macrae, William Bridges
"Our careers used to be something that happened to us; they were developed for us by the organisation for which we worked. In the future it will be very different. Governments may not want to say it but 'independents'--those outside the organisation in self-employment, part-time work or unemployed--now amount to over 40 per cent in every advanced country, and the proportion is growing."
From an article by Charles Handy, in The World in 1995
"Computers are about to cut a swathe through the protected ranks of professional people. Software will start replacing them. Human skills will still be needed and well paid, but only for such truly skilled occupations such as gardening, the problem is that the professional classes have not begun to understand this."
From an article by Norman Macrae in The Sunday Times, 4 December 1994
"The job as a way of compartmentalising work in a continuous way is going to disappear. Pursuing the concept of job creation is a waste of time and effort. By the year 2020, our job chase will look like fighting over the deck chairs on the Titanic. Before the Industrial Revolution, the word "job" meant doing a task, not a post or position that would keep on lasting forever. We're now returning to the previous meaning of the word. In the post-job society, most company middle managers will go, hierarchies will disappear and many top managers will also go when their particular project target has been realised. They will have to devise new projects and offer them around. One of the reasons I like working for myself is that nobody is going to retire me."
From the book, Jobshift by William Bridges, 1995)
|Chapter 1 Retrospect from 2015|
In these marvellous years 1995-2015, Sweden has again made itself into the fortunate country. It has held that role before. From 1870 to 1970 this small and cold northern land had a faster increase in real income per head than any country except Japan. As Sweden has civilisedly kept out of war since 1814 while Japan in the single lifetime of any eventually octogenerian Japanese born 1970 has crashed through three agressions into Hiroshima, the greatest increase in material happiness clearly went to the Swedes. By 1945 Sweden was far the richest country in Europe -with twice the income per head of what were to become the first 12 member countries of the European Community.
In the 25 years after 1945, Sweden found it easy to propser because of this happy 1945 start, its can-do capabilities and its neighbours' boom. It no longer outpaced thiose neighbours in economic growth, especially West Germany after 1848, but this seemed not to matter. In 1945-70 Sweden was engaged in a proud experiement that won admiration from progressive people round the world. It became the first countrty to virtually abolish real poverty among any of its folk, to care for the most unfortunate of its citizens in an egalitarian way, with a lack of civil strife at home and peace keeping honours in United Nation missions abroad that made the "Swedish model" the hope of much of the decent majority of mankind. Until 1970, Sweden was quite generally listed the "most admired country" in international opinion polls, usually followed by Canada or Switzerland. Then , in 1970-1990, so much of this went wrong....
