triple-a nations -curriculum on nations futures

the good and the bad news is that economist design futures now 10 times faster

nations we should go to bed each night thanking for their existence

this is the latest rating table devise by simon anholt - around about 1988 he and I first raised questions on valuing nation brands- well actually I believe 99% of all brand valuations use unsustainable algorithm which leads their decision-makers astray but doing this to a whole nation;s peple seems to us to be one of sustainability's greatest crises

below are some leagues of nations different sources thank for existing good of and then in lower posts the opposite - reasons for being terrified for people chained to particular nations that make chances of 99% of the peoples earning a decent living next to zero unless something changes

I have a feeling that simons list is desperately in need of veto criteria - eg in developing rating across standard metrics he hasnt got the analytic capability to throw out a country because of something specifically ungood that it does - eg switzerland and its money laundering

from wall street 24 worst 10 nations - whats worth studying is what metrics any listing does and does not use

worst rating guinea

1. Guinea
> GCI score (1-7):?2.79
> GDP per capita:?$1,178 (5th lowest)
> Debt as a pct. of GDP:?37.8% (57th lowest)
> Pct. of residents using Internet: 1.6% (4th lowest)
> Biggest problem in doing business: Access to financing

Guinea was rated by the WEF as the world’s least competitive economy. No country was awarded a worse rating for the provision of basic requirements. The lack of infrastructure is especially problematic for the country, which had some of the world’s lowest quality roads and poorest electricity supply. A macroeconomic environment characterized by a lack of savings and high inflation also limits Guinea’s competitiveness. The country, which is rich in metals resource, derives much of its export revenue from bauxite — used in making aluminum. However, Guinea’s weak?economic?development makes attracting investment to its mining sector difficult. Access to financing was cited as the greatest problem for doing business in Guinea.

worst 10







sierra leone


timor leste

burkina faso

some questions- this listing seems to ignore whether a country is in middle of war zone- if that means that other things be equal these cpuntries are even worse off structirally than ones in war zones- that's quite sad isnt it? how did the 21st get to this geopolitically? and even if you dont have time to feel morally upset about vit , are there other plagues of connectivity beyond ebola that may yet destroy outr whole species if we cant raise support for peoples at bottom of world's structural supports?

worst ten in terms of internal inequality


1. Chile
> Gini index – post tax & transfer: 0.501
> Social spending, pct. of GDP: 10.2% (3rd lowest)
> Chg. in Gini after tax & transfer: 0.025 (the smallest)
> Job growth, 2013: n/a

Chile was the least equitable country in the OECD, with a Gini index score of 0.501, even after accounting for taxes and transfers. The?history?of Chile’s economy has been shaped largely by Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship. While the Chilean government has been relatively stable since returning to democracy in 1990, and residents have among the highest standards of living in Latin America, social services were still a relatively small expense in the country. Total social spending amounted to just $1,733 per capita in 2010, less than in every country reviewed except for Mexico. Chile’s?GDP?growth?has actually been fairly strong in recent years. GDP grew 4.2% in 2013 from the year before, the highest growth rate among OECD countries.

10 worst











i do wonder whether we are comoparing like with like - eg residency issues complicate this -eg are some of china's and russia;s richest domiciled elsewhere making their country's gini look better and another places worse; are some statistics less transparent than others - that no middle east country appears in this list surprises me

still its an eyeopening list

welcome to most valuable missing curricula OPEN SOCIETY world has ever needed to cross-culturally search for

Joint Home with The Economist since 1972 of The Job Creating curricula of Entrepreneurial Revolution


  • Practical Curricula of 7 global market sectors whose locally sustainable purposes need to be most urgently searched by 7 billion people and collaboratively empowered by hi-trust communal investments in worldwide youth
  • 10 green bottles curricula mapping massive open change to economic abundancy of million times more collaboration of post-industrial networking- annual summary of greatest differences between past ad future that it ought to be a democratic economists number 1 responsibility to - eg by 1976 a young Romano Prodi was celebrating this as critically important to mediate all over Southern Europe


How did Norman Macrae become pro-youth economist? After spending last days as teenager navigating planes in ww2 over modern day Bangladesh and Myanmar, Norman was tutored in Cambridge Corpus Christi by Keynes: increasingly only economists will design or destroy futures youth need most .Fast forward one quarter after 25 years of editing leaders for The Economist

;1972: Norman Macrae starts up Entrepreneurial Revolution debates in The Economist. Will we the peoples be in time to change 20th C largest system designs and make 2010s worldwide youth's most productive time? or will we go global in a way that ends sustainability of ever more villages/communities? Drayton was inspired by this genre to coin social entrepreneur in 1978 ,,continue the futures debate here

is any computer science major (or any parent) interested in affordable education also interested in MOOC ?

my dad () first became The Economist's net generation future correspondent in 1972 when we saw 500 youth sharing knowledge on an early digital network

capital abuse of youth

Number 1 debate of yunus 2050 bookclub

MILLENNIUM OF BRAND PART 2 to 1988 survey year of brand
Let us suppose as people experienced in branding or in mediating hi-trust open search we can identify the brand which can sustain the most people's productive lifetimes round achieving millennium goals voted for by the net generation
before we get to the thorny question of is the worldwide's favorite brand the leaders of superstars give back to communities, or telecentres owned by the poorest or other youth networks needing to job create, or free tertiary education or MIT or ashden.org or www.brac.net or africa24tv.com in conjunction with mo ibrahim transparency awards as prototype world service model for every continent, or Japan-borderless-economics or was it what The Economist was founded in 1843 and backed by queen victoria to do in helping her transition raj economics from empire to commonwealth? admittedly a project she commanded too fast with james wilson losing his life to diarrhea 9 months after being relocated to calcutta ( whose free healthcare network solution of oral rehydration grew the reputation of brac in bangladesh and obama's candidate for next world bank partners in health of Haiti)
what if currency in the future isnt planned by a few noisy politicians trying to re-elect themselves but is exchanged by the organisations that are most collaborating in 7 billion peoples improvement of the human lot and full lifetime if productivity - an idea that my father first called maximising gross world product as distinguished from gross national product
(long ago states became a minority of the top 100 economies judged in terms of separated systems)
will digital cash systems make this easy to brand provided the world's most trusted brand is chosen first - one which by definition will need to be owned in trust by everyone but arguably with more voting power to the next generation or those that have been compound excluded by the way political systems got mass mediated since world war 2
anyone else interested in co-editing this discussion doc or am I talking to myself? timing japanese embassy as guardians of happiest economics for asian pacific century are discussing such issues with sir fazle abed and friends of my father tomorrow night

Hot Discussion October:

Economics Millennium Challenge

Sample some hot discussions in july



Chartering is an open Question & Answer method of mapping which we invite all most passionately interested in an unique purpose and heroic goal to linkin. . It was developed by a NM ER microeconomics network and published by the Economist Intelligence Unit in early 1990s. Our chartering network aims to focus first on the world's most unique value multiplying purposes.


Since 1982 Norman argued that service economies are sustained by interfacing great open projects- he then clarified how in true knowledge networking economics, people would quickly need to map why separated organisational structures often compound least economic impacts. At this community we will demonstrate how chartering works with a few small projects whose purposes we founded

  • Journal of Social Business
  • YouthandYunus.com
  • Opentech Parnter roundtables convened at places magic moments in 2010s race ton pro-youth economics


as well as a few giant projects we have tracked for a long time and believe to be absolutely critical to 2010s sustaining youth's most exciting decade

  • Paris as Social Business Capital of world ; DanoneCommunities
  • Social Business Chairs with a capital's multiple seats
  • SingforHope
  • Micro TechLab at Fukuoma Social Business City and Kyushu University
  • Yang Yin Bao
  • BankaBillion
  • Jamii Bora
  • Wholeplanetfoundation
  • Interface
  • Crowdmapping

This is our 35th year of helping Entrepreneurial Revolutionaries and networkers connect round the most heroic goals all are children want. It has been the greatest editorial privilege> Until Norman's passing in 2010 it was possible for 3 Macraes to meet and discuss detailed social experiences of work with youth in over half of the world's nations. As Internationalist Scots we build on 6 generations of our families's practical experiences across hemispheres and love of transparent maps of empowering productive lifetimes for and by all.

Main ER interests of this community are:

organisational stories


Mapping Greatest Purposes ever sustained across generations especially at times of extraordinary change- we invite future correspondents to this for the 16 most life-critical global markets


networks which seemed to be the defining change of productive lifetimes of anyone born after 1950


value multiplication which happens in hi-trust relationship architectires where everyone's best effors are trasparently linked in to win-win-win business modelsand sustainably rising exponentials - this can only happen in places and cultures where long-term investors are heroised more than speculators

More specific entrepreneurial revolutionary maps are linked in by our associate nings:

  • YunusCity: Increasing productivity of youth and poorest as Asia Pacific century leads


  • Jamii Bora - increasing productivity of youth and families in Africa and South

The unacknowledged giant

The unacknowledged giantAdd to PlaylistNorman Macrae is remembered as the Unacknowledged Giant of The Economist. Actually he acted as the world's favourite hub for economics of entrepreneurs before there were hubs for enrepreneurs to collaboratethrough.
Economics is joyous when it helps peoples advance the human lot or when parents can see their investments in children and community are developing opportunities and lives that they could barely have dreamt of.

We suggest the term baddest bank be used to identify those from which freedom of peoples and nations may not be quite the same again. As an internationalist Scot, this sub-editor has a special interest- a banking scam at the start of the 1700s! led to the failure of Scotland as an independent nation, the hostile takeover of Scotland  by England, the need for more that half of Scots to emigrate to make a living in other parts of the world making Scotland one of the first diaspora nations. While worldwide entrepreneurial networking may have gained from this local banking fraud, its amazing that peoples all over the world haven't yet required economists to be transparent about the exponential consequences of bad banking -any parent owes it to their children of the net generation to sort this out now so that we get back to the 2010s being the most productive time for worldwide youth
