Does anyone agree or disgaree with this story about brand leading humanity back to millennium goals and safety- the next 6 months will determine how much obama is able to change micro up - this is arguably the most exciting 6 months of our generation cos if he doesnt change enough so that we never have another wall street, we dont ever delay solar again, we prevent wars about cultures we don't locally have abilities to connect with etc (suggest edgy ideasideally UK could take a lead & cut its arms budget 20% a year and early avoid slump) then its hard to believe we ever will
we need believers of this story both to collaborate telling it everywhere and explain what they sell that can help the story and their own work sustainability
I have prepared a best of the year of future capitalism and social business stuff yunus has shared with me at http://smbaworld.com/id42.html if you do click to it my hope would be that it makes the above both more urgent and more actionable to connect around .. we are also continuing

eived an odd mail or two -not from you I should hasten to say - that claims I work closely with Dr Yunus. I would like to correct any such assertion. I am a very strong supporter of Dr Yunus- as a mathematician, I find his ways of valuing organsitions much saner than Wall Street. My father and I since 1984 have forecast that globalisation will compound ever more risk onto communities everywhere unless we map microeconomics and collaborative approaches ending poverty that I believe bangladesh has about 34 years experience of developing, and many other big nations haven't yet started from ground up system support. So I am as strong a fan of Yunus and the 100000 grassroots sustainability investment faciliators of Bangladesh but it would be utterly wrong to say that I contribute to any of his people's innovative work. It is communally important to me that anyone who hosts yunus10000 dvd parties with youth does not make exaggerated claims of my or indeed anyone's relationship with Dr Yunus, Grameen, or others who do a lot more for ending poverty than I have ever done.…
museum so that one day our children will visit it and ask how we could have allowed such a terrible thing to go on for so long'. This work is a fundamental rethink on the economic relationship between the rich and the poor, their rights and their obligations. The World Bank recently acknowledged that 'this business approach to the alleviation of poverty has allowed millions of individuals to work their way out of poverty with dignity'.
Credit is the last hope left to those faced with absolute poverty. That is why Muhammad Yunus believes that the right to credit should be recognized as a fundamental human right. It is this struggle and the unique and extraordinary methods he invented to combat human despair that Muhammad Yunus recounts here with humility and conviction. It is also the view of a man familiar with both Eastern and Western cultures — on the failures and potential for good of industrial countries. It is an appeal for action: we must concentrate on promoting the will to survive and the courage to build in the first and most essential element of the economic cycle…

nity to meet with Muhammad Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank. Yunus’ efforts in microcredit and poverty reduction earned him the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006.
Starting the bank in 1976 in Bangladesh, Yunus saw credit as a human right and sought to expand this right by offering small loans to start sustainable businesses. Today, the bank has helped 7.5 million people. Of those who have been a part of the program, 64 percent have been able to lift themselves out of poverty.
What is remarkable is that the bank gives loans based on trust, not collateral. This ideology goes against the practices of Western financial institutions but remarkably, 98 percent of the loans are repaid. The vast majority of the loans are given to women because their earnings are more likely going to directly support their families.
Banks modeling the Grameen Bank have spread to all parts of the world including Arkansas. Yunus came in 1986 at the request of then governor Bill Clinton to establish microcredit. What resulted was the Good Faith Fund which is still in existence today.
Places like Africa, where more than 400 million people live on less than a dollar a day, are in dire need of more institutions like the Grameen Bank. Africa lacks the business capital and investors to get the economy going. The World Bank’s 2008 report on Doing Business ranks countries on how easy it would be to establish a business. The report ranked Ghana and Kenya, among other African countries, at number 27, meaning investment is possible in Africa. Unfortunately, many investors and creditors are reluctant to invest in Africa because of rampant corruption and lack of credit. As a result, investment is more likely to come in the form of small, private enterprises and not large, global investment measures. “Africa’s prosperity and stability will not come from dependency on foreign aid but from sustained, productive private investment,” said Shirti Vadera, parliamentary under secretary of state for the UK’s Department of International Development. Yunus’ approach is one successful alternative to large amounts of foreign aid.
“All human beings have unlimited creative potential,” Yunus said. “Once that is unleashed, no one has to be a poor person.” People have the ideas within themselves to bring an end to poverty. We simply must give them the means. This is at the heart of the Grameen Bank. From Bangladesh, to Africa, to Arkansas, we should not be afraid to invest in small acts that can lead to so much.…
Kwong. I was asking whether it would be possible to leave a free dvd on audience’s chairs at your Thursday afternoon event. The dvd is an exclusive made with Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus and his 10 leading poverty entrepreneurs in Dhaka including all 4 original co-founders of Microcredit in 1976. I am not aware of any resource that connects all their 34 years of entrepreneurship including the 25000 people who work at Grameen and the 100000 that President Clinton has identified as being primarily responsible for Bangladesh’s thriving rural and mobile economies. Roy said I should leave a dvd for you on Wednesday night and I will bring a box just in case you are happy with distribution.
My father, Norman Macrae, worked at The Economist for 40 years and was a reviewer of the Atlas Book Prize. In 1984, dad & my future history to 2024 forecast that the 00s would be the riskiest decade; that ending poverty would be the generational challenge that reduced risk and advanced sustainability; that this would need a Nobel Laureate to inspire the worldwide generation to hunt out 30000 replicable community rising projects. Having read Dr Yunus’ book (2008: Creating a World without Poverty - Social Business, Future of Capitalism) on the system designs that Dr Yunus and Grameen Bank have used to collaboratively end poverty, my father commends Dr Yunus as the the number 1 entrepreneur of the free market of ending poverty.
Through 2009, we aim primarily to connect 10000 university students and alumni of Yunus, and Obama through hosting dvd parties with the 10000 dvds we have printed for free distribution across collaboration networks with a microeconomics lens. As we only just receive the dvds a fortnight ago, documentation on potential uses is still in progress. Rough maps of the 7 microsummits that 68 year old Dr Yunus believes are essential to empower by 2015 to achieve millennium goals are indicated.
Sincerely, Chris Macrae
