James Wilson and Norman Macrae were agreed the only reason they spent their lives mediating economics was ending poverty -the happiness and freedom search to empower every livelihood. Picking up their leadership pens, 105 years apart Wilson 1843 tried to celebrate goodwill of leaders as impacts of industrial revolution multiplied; Norman(1948) as the worldwide started an odyssey of doubling spends on communications every 7 years for 70 years- that's a 1000 fold increase of 2015now.

How the last quarter of 2015 determines whether elders invest in sustainability of youth and humanity  economistyouth.com economistwomen.com

It may be helpful to review what man knew about exponentials system designs in 2015, 1864 and 1930s

1930s Keynes last chapter of general theory clarified how the monopoly rules locked in by of elderly academic economists explained decline and fall of nations. Einstein and Von Neumann soon added that the 20th century's investment in borderless communications and computing networks would put value of all 21st century peoples lifetimes in the same lifeboat

In 1984, The Economist published how Orwell's ultimate world war between big brotherdom and little sisterdom had been timelined about 30 years too early. Time enough you might thin to design/mediate a sustainable bottom-up globalisation. However beware, cold war western economic theories of developing nations since world war 2 had proved to spin terrifying systems failure. Would the inflated egos of the west biggest decision makers fueled by neurotic media learn in time from the East's most promising development actions and the south's courageous exploration of faith - POP1.0 from 1960s, mobilised POP2.1 to emerge at the turn of the millennium

fall 2015 No mortal has ever delivered a 3 day curriculum of what human sustainability would take quite like Pope Francis travels up and down east cast USA september 2015. This dateline also saw the UN launch of what von neuman's  game theory of mobile networks had shown to be the 90 days when sustainability goals would be won or lost --depending how much elders empowered youth ownership of making sustainability development goals grounded in every community.

-what i really wanted from 4 september is

-amma collaboration and women empowerment networks to accelerate through prita and naila knowing each other
ultimately to know if yazmi is amma's and so UNAI's favorite satellite learning channel or not

-there's also a lot of gaps between athgo and what youth inside world bank need to hub and network if they are to linkin jim kims lifes work, and by serendipity Prita found someone on the 13th floor who is certainly one of youth's missing links, and if she can also help us connect pabsy live and yazmi that is the sort of soft landing iside world bank noah also needs

ultimately to get naila to make sure that navneet lives up to his diary commitment and accepts Prita's kind offer to meet in Kerala sometime in November; also november is last possible date for me to understand whether amma and dubai leaders have a lot in common- the youth summits we are building in dubai desperately need an empowerment curriculum and a world leading summit on nanotechnology is staged in dubai early december- dubas's yazmi partner when I met him seemed young and open minded on what curricula millennials youth need most if their jobs and sustainability goals are to be win-win; his company i was told is a yazmi lead partner on languages - an area of critical concern to my chinese creative children networks; and dr ramga has more recently indicated that dubai may be yazmi's first way back to linking back satellites reaching china

two questions
ranga - is 8.30 1 september at yazmi still on?

prita -assuming naila does chose 11am on friday - is there somewhere on north east side of washington dc
that i can drive to- i forget where you live; i can some to pretty well any location but dont particularly want 
to drive into the end of the rushhour by going all way into town starting from my bethesda origin

my understanding remains that naila is all out during the last week of september new york connecting womens networks around amma - eg amma is videocasting to the first ladies luncheon Fashion for Development and accepting their laureate of the year on 28 september; i have included peter burgess on this email; dr ranga has met him in new york; basically since late 2007 when i first started sampling 2000 of muhammad yunus books and so got to know naila peter has staged events in new york when i have not been able to

the rest of this year is classic diary nightmare - i need to be in ,london on 22 september - shareholders meeting where The Economist is being sold off to the wrong networks; new york til night of 28 september; back in dc on 29 september for the main latin american west coast east coast youth summit before jim kim takes world bank start of year meetings to lima peru where i hope to be the week after and where my co-worker bernardo  is still trying to get chile's president bachelet to work with yazmi on reconnecting a southern american satellite so pope francis identification with 1.2 billion peoples maximise preferential option poor invitations across all goodwill faiths

before a big summit of nailas in san diego (inequality and end traficking of women and borders migrant disasters) the week after where the pope is sending a cardinal on ammas request and where hiro from japan who ranga amy naila and i started icaf week off with back on 29 june -somewhere at start of 2016 i need to be in rome at my annual debriefing of what dc promised and then failed to do in time for millennials to move along pope's requests-as you can imagine 2016 will be a year of vacuum among us political leaders - also prime time for satellite learning channels to laepafrog past them on behalf of bottom up peoples networks

so yes diaries are getting exponentially more complicated- and if thats true for a small player like me i can imagine its true for big players- and i still guess that lack of process around noah's dairy ,may yet be yazmi's biggest risk

speakers at tomorrows women capitalism webinar stanford

Join us tomorrow:
Global corporations are creating programs designed to empower women economically to improve the quality of their supply chains, enhance their access to talent and increase the productivity of their workforce. Yet, for these programs to create sustainable change in women's lives, they must address underlying issues that prevent women from realizing their full potential. One effective way to do this is to work with a group of NGOs that corporations often overlook: grassroots women's organizations (GWOs).
Drawing on a number of examples of corporate-GWO partnerships in different parts of the world—many based on a shared value model—Dina Dublon, Daniel Lee, Muadi Mukenge and Marissa Wesely will explore strategies for, and challenges in:
  • Finding the right partner, including the role of women's funds and others as "connectors" to the grassroots
  • Building effective partnerships, including issues of common language, alignment of goals, and fee-for-service models for engagement
  • Evaluating the social and business impacts of these programs
This webinar is for corporate leaders seeking innovative ways to make their women's empowerment programs more impactful, GWO leaders exploring paths to engage with the corporate sector, and others interested in effective models of cross-sector collaboration and/or women's rights and empowerment issues globally.
Price: $49, which includes access to the live webinar; unlimited access to the webinar as many times as you'd like for twelve months; and downloadable slides.
Advancing Women Webinar Package: Purchase this webinar along with a video recording of "The Rise of Gender Capitalism" for the discounted price of $69. Register for both webinars here.

lancet and women health commission

Jim Kim Until and unless our development investments value, compensate, count—and are accountable to—half the world’s population, we will fail in our eff orts to end extreme poverty and build peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable societies. Women—and their families— deserve no less.

Women and Health: the key for sustainable  

development   -full report published june 2015

Executive Summary

Girls' and women's health is in transition and, although some aspects of it have improved substantially in the past few decades, there are still important unmet needs. Population ageing and transformations in the social determinants of health have increased the coexistence of disease burdens related to reproductive health, nutrition, and infections, and the emerging epidemic of chronic and non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Simultaneously, worldwide priorities in women's health have themselves been changing from a narrow focus on maternal and child health to the broader framework of sexual and reproductive health and to the encompassing concept of women's health, which is founded on a life-course approach. This expanded vision incorporates health challenges that affect women beyond their reproductive years and those that they share with men, but with manifestations and results that affect women disproportionally owing to biological, gender, and other social determinants.

Update on nearly 70 years of mapping of how worldwide generation develops sustainable exponentials -started by my father The Economist's end poverty economist in 1948

Publishers of world record book of job creation
 -join our friends and families round the world collaboration blogs Economistwomen.com  EconomistYouth.com EconomistAfrica.com EconomistAmerica.com EconomistAsia.net EconomistChina.net www.youthmarkets.com

our hypothesis is doubling time and money spent on worldwide communications every 7 years (4000+ times more in 203 than 1946) will end up very well, or very badly for all 7 billion people-

 ultimately the goodwill outcome depends ion designing trade (and eg governance) to end poverty

in our maps preparing the new millennium world, the japanese started something (quality electronics, modern cities, fresh community agriculture) from 1946 which korea was an early second follower to in mid 1950s

then came the superports like hong kong, taiwan, singapore- these made money for diaspora chinese ready and waiting to inward invest in china mainland- by mid 1970s they were 3rd wealthiest on earth, and the far east became the least worrisome space on our planet for sustainable millennials-

even better for uniting human race was the 3rd force for millennial empowerment and worldwide sustainability was the grassroots village mother networks out of bangladesh whose first  quarter century version was without any tech at all-these were the highest trust local human networks ever designed- just waiting to leapfrog the development world when they were partnered with mobile connectivity -see eg our notes on BRAC worldrecordhealthtable.doc worldrecordhealthtable.doc, 87 KB   worldrecordhealth.doc worldrecordhealth.doc, 36 KB 

if these are 3 of the most valuable sustainability networks coming from far east - what comes as a win-win from your region and how can we help women and youth empower the most sustainable markets and livelihoods of 2030now

we hope our maps will be openly celebrated by all job creating youth in 2018-  the175th anniversary of James Wilson's mediation to end capital abuse of youth and celebrate families and society as the greatest investors in youth future livelihhopds

Competition, Collaboration & Creativity: Reflections on the Global Innovation Week 2015

Earlier this month, we announced the winners of the Global Innovation Competition 2015, chosen from hundreds of innovators across the globe who are using innovation to support good governance.
GIC Winners
In this blog, Programme Officers Melissa Mbuga, Monica Nthiga and Hyshyama Hamin reflect on the unique Global Innovation Competition Week in Jakarta, which brought the ten teams of finalists together for four days of work with expert mentors ahead of the final night of competition.
Hosting finalists from Indonesia, Bangladesh, Kenya, Mozambique, Ghana, Pakistan, Philippines, Nigeria and South Africa, the final week of the Global Innovation Competition was a reminder of the need to explore new ways to support and learn from these diverse teams applying innovation and technology to governance issues.
During the week, the finalists worked with mentors, pitched their ideas to each other and guest judges, and took part in Jakarta government meetings. Each of these activities gave the finalists something new to think about, and they also provided the Making All Voices Count team with insights into how we can work more innovatively ourselves, and perhaps provide lessons to other global competitions supporting development.
The power of mentoring
Mentoring Global Innovation Competition
Finalists at the Global Innovation Competition were matched with mentors who discussed their technology tools, plans for engagement with government, research, communications and the inclusion of minority groups.
The aim of the mentoring was not only to ensure projects are more likely to win a grant – it was not an opportunity to impress the competition jury – but also help them to achieve the greatest impact possible.
Mentoring Global Innovation Competition 2015
We believe that mentoring supports collaborative learning and the honest hashing out of doubts and questions that are too often hidden in a process that is entirely competitive – and we asked the finalists to share their thoughts on their experience of it:
“It’s really important to peek into the minds of experts and find out how they think and how do they evaluate ideas” – Fayyaz Bhidal
“Other competitions only want to hear about success – so when you have a competition like this that cares to learn more about your weaknesses and the honesty that goes into your projects, this helps improve it exponentially” – Di Luong
Take every opportunity to learn
A popular phrase during the week was that ‘no-one has a monopoly on good ideas’ – and holding the competition in Jakarta was an opportunity to learn first-hand what might be possible for our finalists.
 We attended Jakarta’s public city planning meeting, and spoke with the Governor and his team about the online Smart City platform, which allows anyone to log issues onto a public map and track when and whether issues are solved.
Jakarta Mayor
We got an insight into a government agency proactively using innovation to address the problems of ordinary people – and all left discussing whether this could be adapted, scaled and adopted in any of the other countries we work in.
And this, all from what might have seemed, at the outset, like a long and boring planning meeting…
Feedback is important for everyone, including us
During the closing conversation with the finalists, there were many learning points for our programme on how to keep improving the Global Innovation Competition.
Finalists asked for more formal opportunities to talk through and critique each other’s ideas – a lesson us to structure this into the next competition and not assume these naturally arise.
This year, having learned lessons from the first Global Innovation Competition, we tried to make the application process simpler, but our finalists urged us to go further. We discussed ways to make applying easier, balancing our desire to get the best ideas with the willingness to be open to unusual suspects, who may have poor access to internet or limited English.
