We exist to try and answer questions about what people like The Economist's Norman Macrae. Walter Bagehot, James Wilson, as well as Adam Smith and Maynard Keynes knew about that subdiscipline of economics -Norman called Entrepreneurial Revolution as he started to journalise from 1976 whether net generation would be sustainable.
WHOS SUSTAINABILITY GOALS IF NOT YOUTHS?
We are concerned with system designs which lock in what youth futures are possible out of different communities at exponential rates that system dynamics spin. This scope of economics was most clearly articulated in the last chapter of Keynes General Theory -since Norman who had been a teenager in world war 2 navigating RAF planes over modernday Bangladesh and Myanmar then became one of Keynes last students. So it was that Norman brought this frame of economics to interviews of both great servant leaders and ordinary but passionately purposeful young citizens of the 20th Century's second half.
Ever the peacemaking economist, by the start of the 1960s, dad was celebrating Japan as starting up The East's growth of peoples livelihoods whence by mid 1975 he foresaw China as the joyous human epicentre of potential sustainability of our species.online library of norman macrae-- In so doing Norman helped turn The Economist from 3rd ranked british news journal in 1948 to the most playfully curious global viewspaper

We certainly dont know all the answers - as practical (arts and skills-loving) people and mathematicians we post our replies as a recursive process where we hope humanity will continuously improve any Q&A that youth (the half of the world's populace aged under 30 in 2016) decide is sustainability goal critical.
Educationally, to share the whole truth as we currently perceive it- we believe standardised tests are killing off the diversity of sustainability mindsets that the half of the world under 30 most needed if the 21st century is to turn out to be massively the most joyful and free one - in the sense those words meant in 1776 but which have been shredded by macroeconomics top down folie grandeurs spun by over-commercial tv and vested interests politicians and big bankers - that have so dominated the west's 21st C to date

|MOST EXCITING IDEA UNITING 100 UNIVERSITIES STUDENT UNIONS TO SUSTAIN HUMANS MACHINES & MOTHER NATURE Fortunately the worlds great educator sir fazle abed was already making 100 open universities of sustainable his 5th and final decade long mega-project in an extraordinary attempt to marry the women economics maps of ending povert with expanding middle clases with leapfrog tech partnerships that most empower worldwide youth to advance humanity.In 1984 co-authors of The 2025 Report included The Economist's Deputy Editor Norman Macrae. Our purpose to explore the Keynesian logic of why millennials with a trillion times moore tech than the moonshot generation - and urgently needing to be the first sustainability generation - would need a transformation in which education not economics is valued by all as the communal system which advances humanity.In the intervening 37 years, our friends have seen this view become exponentially more urgent - with covid just the most recent signal that humans have not yet applied remarkable technology leaps by von neumann and others in a way that values all lives matter. We do not see the UN's 2020s sdgs decade as just another media game but humanity's last call. Who's purposes with education give us hope in the 2020s of living up to neumanns (to 1957) and kennedy's (to 1963) valuation of youth.
