Abed ..ed3envoyun.com.- Abed had ideas to prevent extinction -here are the top 10 he discussed with us during 16 trips to bangladesh in his last decade The world would need cooperation between 60 new universities; their undergrad programs would be largely shared online but with local tutrs helping students do fieldtests replicating global village sdg solution -more
Abed had many comments on MOOCs these had not tried to design c for cooperation freeing youth to network across borders be these national , functional silos, or due to colleges certification monopolies he would have maximised new learning from world leaders zooms and ai curation as the metaevrse became main experiential learning platform ..more
Abed had revolutionised aid2.0 direct investment in microfranchsies and aid3.0 cashless banking and a banking for poorest enetry at ever stage of fincial value chain - eg city banking for smes particularly of daughters of village mothers;; ultra poverty graduation - a program that became the case on which nobek economis prize 2019 appears to have been centred; how would have expected his alumni to lead search for worldclassdaos - community building treasuries abed ideas motivated 2016 start of digital cooperation subsequently UN2 - guterres egov digital roadpmaking.abed would have wanted to help nominate membership of those daos to do with SHELFF - that goals 5 women building 100K person communities; goalf 3 health; goal 4 educaton goal 17&1 leadership ppartenr pkatofms and economics; goa2 food;

My father norman macrae was lucky in his 20s – he had survived being teenage navigator bomber command in world war 2 and while sub-editing the economist he met von neumann (father of computing) who told him there would be 100 times more tech every decade from 1955. So dad’s life's work tried to edit sustainability exponentials at the economist. From 1984 he and I wrote 2025 report that gamechanging education would probably determine sustainability or extinction. 2010 When dad died Japan ambassador to Bangladesh invited me to meet sir Ma href="http://www.fazleabed.com">fazle abed who had helped a billion women with education they needed to collaboratively end village poverty across asia. I said I wanted to understand how he had designed education partnerships and he said you can also help me with a challenge after I am gone. If I am right sustainability will depend on how much we support 20 year old graduates of 2020s collaborate in replicating community solutions needed to be the first sustainability generation economistwomen.com. -chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk washington DC +1 240 316 8157.

at valuetrue.com we started mapping value exchanges as network
2 out of 3 humans are asian so sustainability wont happen without mapping asian solutions; what amazes us is how many billion dollar value exchanges existed before mobile technologies; as tech goes everywhere deep data may often be doublechecked with manual maps

dynamics harvard & every us business school got reong about bttom billion womens human devdelpment

My father's carrer invokved writing 2000+ articles for  The economist.

 His 2 favorute subjects spred optimism

 - how people could be locally and communally kinder to each other so ther children could grow up thruving and confiednt in co-creating hauman advancement

how tech would chage worldwide relationships; celebrating 1964 worldwide connections of satellite tele father was one if te first to regeras telecommuting lives; you could live in a place that you naturally loved and work vurtally with people who inspred you most across all hemisphers

Dad focusded on optimistic meiation whilst being aware that dismal stuff can spin round peoples lives and times. His dad had seen his education interrupred by world war 1. dad;s ws iterrutedf by world war 2- he spent his last dasys as atenager navigating olanes in allied bomber comand burma.

Forunatelt dad survuved, complete his degree at cabridge where keynes las calses discussed hw incresingly a few economst would lock in edpeniatila sof wjat was possible. Dad was hired by The Economist's editt who hs just comletes teh cenetenary autobiography oif The Economsit purpsoe - trying to chnage roya famuly dromruling slavemeajing emire to designing in common ealth> but what made father's searches ynuque was being socended ti new yorl and princetion for the year of 1951 ti understand john von neuman. neumann warned that if the communiactiosns techbogies started in centrl europe 1865 had resulted in 2 world warsm what would their multiplcation by 100 tiems more compouringa dnartifivial intel tech er decade result in. Neumann told Noram to start with 3 concerns

-the future of stalin's ussr - stalin was the one elader who comletely diagreed with acions the united natioons was born to map

neumann saud tyhe enregy projects he and his peers were working on would make scientists noth teh most hated and the mst wanted peaople

and he siad his computing and artificial intel projects would one day compund even mor threats and oportunity than the energy projects

You could say that father's stiries were inspired by 3 leading entrepreneurs- techs who von neuman mould have admired; end poverty designers so that where ever next child is born she has a good chnace at life

practice leaders open sourcing basis knowhow we need so nobody starves or dies through lack of last mile heath services, or is deprived of uniting how tdays 8 billion peopel advance humanity becasue their skin or sex is un a minoruty.

Dad's work can be read as questuoning next decades of what will those wit first acess to 00 tiems more tech unite as goods. For father kennedy was a star leader as he chalenged yoth of te 1960s around 2 futures - moon raccing and celebrtaing interdepence of peopels acriss hemisphres. Within 10 years of meeting vn neuman father had started mapping 5 corridors where people were first to be experimenting wit 100 tiems more tech

Whilst fathers main co-worlers were at the economist, i joined father in 1984 half way through neuman's 80 yeras to co-author teh 2025 report. I added in media and digital sxenaris which are sumarise in this revew by the economust's former science editir viscount nat rudley


2025 report - final coperation edition provides updates thans to many peop,e who hsited remebrace parties to dad and intrcuces a game he had satrted with students during his last 2 year - world record jobs. If the way you look at the world is most influend by 2 people plus searches for new thirds - who's alumni re you linking in at any one time and whts the hauman advancemet coopertion they can helo you map.

Ky father's 2 main luminaries were fazle abe and the most pivotal pesson linking in the economic miracle of 1 billion asian women empowerment. 6 years after father death a year one review of the un's 17 goals sgopping list for sustainabilit development mapped a framework that fitted bot von neouman and women ending poverty of being dsiconnescetd from erst of teh worl

audit how humans rights and inclusion are rising the world over

 Between 2000 and 1970 a billion village mothers developed the foundations of ending asian village poverty - caused by geohistory's unique curveballs - eg  tropical diseases and continental locations that empires had left out of electricity and other infrastructure grids, and illiteracy

action:  go to abedmooc.com and after that yunusmooc.com

 what can be learnt from 1 billion village mothers now applies wherever tech is making big bigger rather than local community more diverse and empowered to enjoy real life  - note the paradox your skills may be improved by networking with people on the other side of the world but if you have family they  need real spaces - green or happy or full of  active participation  - human beings are not designed to spend 24 hours a day squinting at screens-


 people like the clintons spent 15 years celebrating muhammad yunus in annual summuts called microcreditsummut - while there is a lot to learn from Yunus too it cant be learnt until you understood what abed did first- yunus admitted as much in his obit to abed

1 abed always designed business solutions that women could use wherever possible= he saw charity distorting sustainable development and indeed he had experienced how western relief agencies are often funded to do something and go  not to train local people to be self-sufficient 

2 abed's rural advancement committee was not primarily about banking it was about livelihoods, last mile heath services, education and ending starvation; this matters because abed's village public servants which totalled 100000 at their peak were practice trainers not bankers nor administrators; when they did the book-keeping this was aside from their passion ; so unlike eg western financial service systems when technology started replacing manual records the staff were only too glad to get back to coaching full time - unlike western bankers who turned those who sued to book-keep for savings into people aiming to maximise credit card debt

3 because abed had previously been regional ceo shell oil , he had the connections to know where best practices had already been used in development-he  imported these ; he wanted the best replicable solutions;  cooperation was a 2-way street- where his networks developed a best solution they joyfully shared this

4 abed started within one year of the nation's birth unlike yunus whose  gramren ordinance didnt start to 11 years afrer brac; at time of birth, 90% of bangladesh wss rural needing bottom up solutions; the government barely had the taxes to look after citizens and national security; abed's networks builr the basics which all other development work depended on

5 even becoming a banker was not abed's intent; once he had  thousands of village mothers making  profits from growing rice and other veggies he went to the government but was told they did not have the ability to bank for these people;  later abed evolved the philosophy; he'd design solutions but where it later became obvious that they were better funded by taxes he would transfer them to governmemt provided the transparent franchise replication resulted; 

6 abed was always building solutions relevant to 100000 person community building not one person at a time; the result was partnership platforms where even the world most sophisticated aid agencies could come and learn - for example : oral rehydration a cure to save a third of infants from dying made up of mixing boiling water sugar and salts in correct proportions that may sound easy to make a nationwide lesson for every village mother; it nearly didn't happen twice; abed tested learning concepts before massive replication; problems he had to overcome turned out to be 3-fold illiteracy; the trainers didnt believe in the solution; the males in the village needed to be informed why this intervention would save their kids lives

 bangladesh had  twice been colonised ,it had been partitioned out of access to the the bay's superport calcutta; a land of river deltas it has almost no mineral resources- its 3 main world trades could only be developed as agricultural ; garments; remittances with perhaps the fourth of being a learning lab which the world  designs the solution millennials graduates most need to replicate to be the first sustainbility generation; there was a game of two halves ; through to the late 1990s all of abed's work was with villagers with no access to electricity grids; when partners brought mobile and solar bangladesh could become the world's number 1 leapfrog lab- how to design solutions when you missed out the whole rea of fixed line phones and elecrticity grids;

brac communities was maximise cooperation ; indeed abed's reason for leaving his job with shell was a cyclone that killed half a million people around him ; he wanted to design communities that had their own resiliency in facing natures challenges

all 3 of the main empires to have historically trapped asian people - ie britain netherlands and in 50 years leading to the 2 world wars the japanese have had the most to learn and support 1 billion women empowerment ;it seems americans neither understood the coastline maps nor the cultures nor the massive intergenerational cooperations  that women empowerrnent has involved .its a pity but needs to be understood very clearly - in the era of deeply diverse data we cant expect artificial intelligences to design human values support systems with the sort or myopia american mba professors had been prone to spin

I started playshool's nextdoor group, MD, for 2 reasons. My daughter wants to advance as a 20-play school something educator and linguist- hopefully breathing good energy into this for 40+ more years.. Meanwhile, 40 years ago I-co-authored the start of a genre www.2025report.com which explored the idea that how education and digital grew up with each other would explain life's community ups and downs far more than any economist's or policy making algorithms or Justice's supreme overlords.

My dad was an economist www.economistdiary.com who had met von neumann in princeton in 1951 and been told to quiz leaders -what goods can peoples unite with 100 times more tech per decade? Not everyone would get equal ops to be first explorers of virtual worlds and non human intellects. For example, since 1965 those lucky to be near enough intel's silicon valley have enjoyed 100 times more chips (blending real and artificial intel), One of the first readers to contact us in 1984 surprised us out of new zealand- he said he wanted to map learning from cradle to grave- and make sure that families understood half of human development happened before the age of 6. Now this included the fact that in poor humid places cut off from communications - half of infants may die of diarrhea or have their brain stunted unless their chief nurturer knows what to do. But its also about how much play versus violence surrounds a kid up to age 6, and indeed whether a kid gets a chance at double linguistic literacy or some other special skill of her family's tree. His book sold a few thousand copies in NZ and 10 million in....
