By 1945 USA had saved the (old) world (3 subcontinents (Asia, Africa, Europe) in one land mass together with 270 dgeree arc of islands from UK to Japan) from wars and trading monopolies ruled by mainly 8 empires:
2 islands UK and Japan
2 continental roofs : Canada and Russia
3 West Euro Empires : France Italy & Germany.- the dollar economy replaced the pound economy. How might an economy uniting nations be integrated from mother earth's diversity?

here is yunus perspective and wishes to collaborate round healthcare from his book Building Social Business:
In many countries the rich pay for any healthcare they want, while the mass public service is inefficient, failing to reach people who need it most. The big empty space between the two can be filled by social business.
In Bangladesh Grameen Healthcare is prototyping health management centres in the villages that will keep healthy people healthy by concentrating on prevention and offering diagnostic and health check-up services, health insurance, educating in health practices and nutrition , and so on. GH seeks to take advantage of the near universal use of mobile phones an is working with leading manufacturers to design diagnostic equipment that can transmit images and data in real time to city-based health experts. Technologies amazing new efficiencies can drive cost of health care down so low at GH that the poorest village can be served while achieving the goal of economic self-sufficiency witch is at the heart of social business
Social Business can also play a role in improving the healthcare infrastructure. GH s already in the process of setting up nursing colleges top train girls from Grameen Bank families . Bangladesh has an enormous shortage of nursing professionals. There is no reason why vast numbers of girls should be sitting around in the villages while these attractive job opportunities go unfilled. Nursing colleges run as social businesses can bridge this void.
Many other segments of healthcare are appropriate for building successful social businesses : nutrition, water , energy, health insurance, health education and training, eye care, mother and child care, diagnostic services and so on.
Social Business is a way of putting the most powerful technologies to work. Our world is in possession of amazing technologies that are growing fast and more powerful every day. All this technology is owned and controlled by profit-making businesses. All they use this technology for is to make more money, because that is the shareholders mandate. Imagine what we can achieve if e use this same technology to solve the problems of the people!
Viewed more broadly, technology is simply a kind of vehicle. One can drive it to any desired destination. Since the present owners want to travel to the peaks of profit-making, technology takes them there. If somebody else decides to use the existing technology to end poverty, it will take the owner in that direction. If another owner wants to use it to end diseases, the technology will go there. The choice is ours. The only problem is that the present theoretical framework under which capitalism operates does not give this choice. The inclusion of social business creates this choice.
One more point to ponder: there is actually no need to choose. using technology for new purpose doesn’t make it less effective for serving a different purposes. Actually, it is the other way round. The more diverse uses we make of technology, the more powerful it gets. Using technology for solving social problems will not reduce its effectiveness for making money, but rather enhance it.
The owners of social business can direct the power of technology to solve the growing list of social and economic problems, and get quick results. And in the process. they will generate even more technological idea for future generations of scientists and engineers to develop. The world of social business will benefit not only the poor but all of humanity.
Once the concept of social business becomes widely known, creative people will come forward with attractive designs for social business. Young people will develop business pans to address the most difficult social problems through social business. The wonderful promise of social business makes it all the more important we redefine and broaden our present economic framework. We need a new way of thinking about economics that is mot prone t creating series of crosses; instead it should be capable of ending the crises once and for all. Now is the time for bold and creative thinking - we need to move fast, as the world is changing fast.

Glasgow Yunus Centre May visit to Prepare for July Microeconomics Yunus summit and congratulate world's 2nd social business professor
dear tav and sofia
as team members of the usmmer 2008 journey to Dhaka Yunus10000 dvd project -you are both invited to this deep action learning trip
6th may evening main with Dr Z to discuss july microeconomics summit with Muhammad Yunus - part 2 of the Royal Automobile Club theme that every once in a generation microeconomist need to unite to collaboratively overthrow macroeconomists, renew sustainability of community economy - however the 2010s is the world's most exciting decade beause this is the last call for microeconomist networking - previously it was only separate civilisations tht microeconomists crashed into and set back for many generatins, this time its the worldwide
7th may morning meeting to discss concept of Journal of Social Business; afternoon meting to discuss whetehr Glasgow caledobian would host the microeconomics archives on Norman macre due to lask of apparent interest of The Economist (subject to one more leter being sent round shareholders)
10th may celebrate with worlod's second socil business professor
my twice great grandfather hosted weekly job camps on the isle of arran in 1840s; will visiit during weekend; after banking fraud in 1700 the english took over scotland and by 1850 half of all jobs were lost- infamously english accountants were sent up to scottish landlords wth taxation schedules based on you make more profit quarterly with sheep than humans; I guess this was trivial stuff compared with the slavetrading industry english empire was spinning; poor scotland which in 1700 had led europe in investing in schools and youth become a backwater; this is why adam smith studied what he did, and why his alumni in france coined the word entrepreneur; (literally the "between take" they were celebrating was having cut off heads of royalty who were monopolising productive assets wht social economy will france develop) ;,more ... if you look back through history of economics as far back as adam smith you find that once in a generation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cquLPtZ3tkA microeconomists need to collaborate -and invent new media to free markets - to overthrow macroeconomiats; where they dont civiilsations fall or wars spread; the only difference in 2010s is if we cock up microeconomics networking all civlisation will globally fall simulltaneously; as yunus new book sys 2010s is truly the most exciting decade to network for the human race

there is a lot on peter drucker studying what french meant by entrepreneurship if you look; of course druckers system maps on knowledge worker are pivotal as they provide pathways to 50 times more productive knowledge working but only if tech is used to help humans crete jobs
my twice great grand-dad's main innovation was to negotiate small sustainbility gifts from those owning land so that rural scots families could emigrate to usa and start lives of entrepreneurship over there
will aim to tell story of job camps (ancient and modern) to glasgow caledonin yunus centre at 2 meetings may 5 nd 9; also in the isle of aran is my aunt who got an OBE for community building; arran is the kind of plce wher a 5000 pound start up fund might do a jamii bora for all the unemployed youth including those from the mainlnd which the ayr council now ships in to some sort of borstl it has built
of course most famously in 1843 another scot came down from hawick ; became an MP determined to boot out 90% of maps sponsored by landlords; founded The Economist with the wish that it be closed down once 2 system transformations had been achieved - repeal of the corn laws (which were achieved but not before irelanss's potato famine- a story mary robinson told at 2003 Glbal Reconciliation Netork meeting in London, at which I became its london branch newsleter editor - and start of 150 years of troubles between ireland and england); and repeal of capital pubnishment - it was james view that it was not civilised to kill off those youth who in big city slums resorting to crime - he would have loved jamii bora
also poor james took on economics reform of the English in india; 10 months into this project in calcutta he died prematurely - what would have saved him was knowledge of oral rehydration ( the cure for infnt diarrhea that scaled BRAC from disaster relief privatisation agency to regeneration privitisation agency )
on may 9: 2 hour meeting with world's 2nd social business professor - his remit is to show how microcredit and health in the community connect in galsgow and bangladesh; the expectations yunus has written up in book (as you can see ) are immense
on may 5 I will talk to the fundraising arm of glasgow caledonian to see if sir tom hunter still has money to sponsor job camps ; to see if Iceland's mgnus magnusson daughter at BBC radio is going to be an activist of book 2
during weekend there is also possibility to meet my (what do you call an uncle once removed) - he was a misisonary in africa all his life; its interesting to meet him as his son callum is a bbc war reporter and very social in north london; he tends to host monthly dinners of extremely socal activists; his wife works for channel 4 or 5
as often there are many relations to be bulit before and after ; will try to tell yunus sb professor the stories of modjtaba and paul komesaroff and ganesh (who yunus met in bomby in march -probably the greatest gandhian activist of end poverty mobilising rights of nomads)- in 2004 I open sourced the system exponentials white paper to 500 gandhians in delhi at the conference co-hosted by these three on the coming wars between goodwill and badwil networks;
