what we knew about global viruses in 2005
we welcome ideas on zooms june 2020 -10th remembrance of dad norman macrae - chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk
June marks the 10 anniversary of death of my father Norman Macrae The Economist's entrepreneurial revolution and end poverty sub-editor. We are organising a zoom calendar. I have appended a short excerpt of The Economist's remembrance party.
Favorite events after his death-
the Japan Embassy in Dhaka and Open Society Laureate Sir Fazle Abed organised 2 dinner roundtables on the future of university and future of fintech -transforming education and health by 2025 was the core idea of my father and my 2025 report published in 1984 as timelines to sustainability opposite to orwell's end game

Adam Smith scholars held an event at Glasgow U aiming to celebrate bottom up entrepreneurs 250th year of man and machines started by smith and james watt in 1760 - an online catalogue of papers helped me learn a lot!

Dad had survived war as teen navigating raf planes over modernday myanmar- not to every politician's liking, he was always trying to roll back the traps across the old world continent caused primarily by britannia and japan's colonial era- father saw people like Soros and Gorbachev as huge heroes- one of dad's main retirement projects was the biography of John Von Neumann

Optimistic Rationalism is as vital in 2020 as any time in my memory.
sincerely, chris macrae washington dc +1 240 316 8157

debate of the year - virus who pays

where is this debate opening across societies and borders
now that every person is onlin how do we map a global beyond borders
chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk
can boston make a come back with kimuniversity.com
will osun make this curriculum of the year across its 20 plus worldwide scholars webs
will jack ma's second year returning to being youth full time educator turn from olympics of sports celebrities to olympics of local heroes- does community health ai exist as a field if so why dont bezon and ma's beb services unite to show us how ro rock
ater 10 dusastrous statistical mistakes will governors take back escape from the virus world wherever americans most despeately need community action not washigon grandstanding
send us your question on the debate of a lifetime
?
I once asked who will pay for the COVID? From what I have seen, here are some possibilities
1. Individual taxpayer (no surprise, what else?)
2. Corporate taxpayer (especially those who have made a lot of money during this period)
3. Petro taxes: keeping the retail price constant, the government can cash in on the low petrol prices.
4. Insurance companies (this is what they do).
5. Governments could take debt (so finally taxpayer but spread over the years to our children and grandchildren).
6. Shareholders take risk and should bear risk as far as bankruptcy is concerned. This includes pension funds who took the risk... can't just have gains.
7. Charity.
8. Issue new money (see Milford Bateman's comment below).
9 China pays (can't understand why, wonder which country is going to be charged for Ebola or AIDS or any other illness). Of course, China may say US pays... lets make US great again?
10. Germany pays! This is a new one, in the name of European solidarity. Not so new if one remembers my paper on Greece: the price of access to markets must be social security subsidies for weaker countries. (At that time I hadn't thought of "weak" meaning those more susceptible to a virus, though).

goal 2

Drones can reduce the cost of fertiliser in agriculture (eg rice paddy japan) by 90% as well serve organic systems https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michinoku_Bank this rural bank in japan has revised its business model - it no longer only finances separate businesses-itis financing the training a
and development of drone farming- see nhkworld 1/20  earlier in the week nhkworld reported that japan is investing in agricultural drones - globally a sector 70% led by china

the  sustainability of half a billion women owned family businesses by brac emerged from a similar system mapping- one of the great models of rural keynesianism hubbed across continental asia (the majority of the worlds people) in the 1970s

the rural community recovery network brac started focusing on training that built
3 rural economies in one
village health workers - see parallel chinese network barefoot doctors
nutrition - see alumni o borlaug which became irri asian rice science
women - in bangladesh women are the resident family and so community builders but they had previously been excluded from finance

faced with tens of thousands of village microfranchises - family owned positive cash flow models in the villages) microfinance of brac was innovated to be the banking system in trust for what compounded as millions of women owned sustainable village business

end poverty goal 1

sustainable humans  cannot end poverty unless banking prioritises financial services for replicating 30000 community solutions- we have known this since 1984 or earlier - those who regulate train or invest in banking that fails this should be removed from every place

- those needing to see solutions

primarily because of the island empires of uk and japan-over half of the worlds people living on the continent of asia had been trapped in poverty
it makes sense to understand how 100 million girls ended poverty with solutions pioneered in bangladesh - study at brac university if there are no investors in world casds infrastructure-

if your place is fortunate enough to have a rich diaspora or other long-term investors study how chinese rural families started by sharing bangla solutions in the 1970s then added infrastructure solutions all the time checking in on what leapfrog solutions bangladesh girl power used henever given a chance at entreprenurial revolution eg mobile finance bkash, microsolarpower
