i value transparency of family trees a lot - no need to read remainder of this post unless you love swapping family trees - i am at linkedin UNWOMENS -we offer economist co-blogs on 30 purposes from UN to Green to Health to Black to AI to future to Japan to ,,,
welcome to my (friends & family) networks on yuth-centric learning on human nature worldwide- as diaspora scots i can trace some of my family's biggest concerns back to 1843- at that time my many times great grandfather was the isle of arran's missionary- an island which is today 40 minutes ferry ride from mainland scotland, and another 40 mins train ride from glasgow - see economistdiary.com ecop26.com xglasgow.com sdgscotland.com
the island probably consisted of 1000 servants 1 priest 1 lord's family; 20000 sheep- like the rest of scotland capitalists from london were ordering scottish lords- you make more money quarterly by raising sheep- thin the scottish people- my family's solution on sundays debate in one large village circle which family wanted to emigrate next and send a message to the lord that he could thin another 5 people if he paid their shipping usually to usa - this happened all over scotland until 80% of scots live worldwide
down in london, my hero london-scot james wilson thought empire thinning of people was just one of many human wrongs of white empire alongside slavetrading, genocide, colonising, and controling agricultural markets price so that neighbors such as the irish starved; he started a newspaper, the economist in 1843 as a weekly gossip letter he circulated in londons royal societies
at that time quuen victoria with albert was still young in heart and strong in mind- she liked the idea of reigning over commonwealth instead of slavemaking
so she gave james a bank licence- charter bank- to go develop financial services by and for the peoples of india out of the then capital calcutta - there in 1860 james died of diarrhea within 9 months of landing -it was to take 83 and 120 years before my family's intelligence directly converged with james wilson legacy
lets skip trough my family tree to my father norman macrae after just mentioning that my mothers farher was a 4th generation scot in bombay who had mainly been pharmacists (landmark: kemps corner) but sir ken qualified as a barrister about 20 years after gandhi but found humself as britains chief justice mediating gandhi for 25 years before ken's last job writing up all india's independence- he had been told to assume all india was one nation not the partition into unequal thirds it became; at around the same time gradad was typing up independence dad norman macrae was spending his last days a a teen navigating planes in bomber command stationed in burma; from burma you can look west across bay of bengal to india including kamala harris maternal homeland chennai and central asia, or fly south to singapore and asean , or look to your north to china and where the then enemy japan were ruling the skies
thanks to americans dad and so i existed- after being in keynes last class dad got a job at the economist where he was well positioned to take up james wilsons baton; within 15 years dad concluded japan had transformed in the most joyful way- it was developing around 2 new economic models one rural, one supercity which all asia could win-win trade with - thats over 60% of humans most of whom had never seen electricity let alone win-win trading maps for centuries due to colonisation mainly by london- in 1962 president kennedy within a week of dads publication consider japan was cheering on this new future sustaining everyone -kennedy started declaring american interdence as the future of von neumann's legacy- but within a year both kennedy and medgar evers were assassinated- and quite frankly i cant really understand america's asian policy ever since- fine that not my business- but it most certainly was the business of anyone supporting billion womens empowerment around fazle abed;
|... in the 1950s the teenage fazle abed travelled to glasgow to study naval engineering; this was about 65 years after gandhi had gone from indua's north west coast to london to study to be a barrister; fazle abed travelled from what had been india's far north east (recolonised as east pakistan his homeland was to regain independence as bangladesh 1971) : abed graduated from glasgow, went to london , mastered charter accountancy and by the early 1960s he had landed a job at royal dutch shell oil corporation; and by 1970 was his home regions ceo for shell; there a million people died all around him in a cyclone; this changed his life: for half a century he became a collaborative networker of villagers ending poverty -he redesigned disaster relief to be bottom up and aid around microfranchising women village entrepreneurs; - he was thus bringing what james wilson had left off 110 years earlier but in abeds case his bank blocked from serving calcutta reached out to provide the rural keynesianism investmemts and the village microfranchise solutions that up to a billion village mothers used bth to build bangladesh and rural china; how that was done can be learnt or co-created at www.abedmooc.com through 2020s if we want all our children to be the sustainability generation|

what would humanity miss if XXX did not exist? I published this new economics/valuation genre "Chartering" with The Economist Intel Unit while working at the globalisation consultancy of one of the big 5 accountants 1995. Of all the leaders purposes journalists and researchers have chartered in last quarter of century, I value that of Fazle Abed most.
As discussed here, Fazle's purpose devoted 5 decades 1970s through 010s - helping a billion poorest women map up to 30 collaboration networks resolving life critical challenges .
If lives are falling apart in your community I can try and help you search which 4 of 30 abed networks you need. At its simplest communities need hi-trust actionable advice/societal action networking on health, education, finance, engineering. They need this advice to have intergenerational consistency for at least 25 years. That's HERSTORY now evidenced by a billion village women!.
FUTURE Now: if my friends maths models since 1984 are correct -we somehow need to apply tech to deep community data everywhere that children are born and co-create first sustainability generation by 2030.
chris macrae short bio- the future of university became an amateur passion after my first job at uk national dev project computer assisted learning university of leeds; i never earned more than a masters in statistics from cambridge's' DAMTP 1973; from 1976 i helped the worlds biggest western companies collect data needed for innovation but from 1990 i became more interested in unique purpose of leaders- co-research with my father (The Economist's Norman Macrae) on 2 books including biography of john von neumann has made our main scientific hypothesis since 1984 that the human race's extinction battle with nature must be collaboratively resolved in 2020s - the most exciting time to be alive and celebrate fellow human beings
