|. What clues from your family tree match adam smith's lessons on preventing human extinction?|
Adam Smith was in the right time and space to question how the age of machines and humans would be the most exciting time to be alive- for better or worse machines could change everything. Adam tried to map how every perosns life could have equal accees to applying machines
We can divide adam's exciting times into 3 urgent future reviews:
the next 10 years sustainability goals- eg economistdiary.com come to adam smiths glasgow uni cop 26 to mediate that
the first 75 years of the birth of the united nations 1945-2020
the first 165 years of humans and machines which climaxed in world war 2
I come from 5 generations of diaspora scots - so my family tree's cluetrain is quite long- in particular my father trained hundreds of journalists for humanity that most history is bunk - its written by the rich and famous not by we the peoples family tree.Lets' suppose you are american - your family tree's most urgent lessons for preventing extinction wont be the same as mine but can we find some snaps. if you are an american woman you have different lessons than american man; if you are a native american you have different lessons than if you are an immigrant; if you are an american white, what white empire crisis in rurope did you family flee from to help unite the american dream; if you are american black or brown, what is the most unique lesson to prevent extinction of our children or their childrens childrens. these are the most exciting times to list clues to how 7.5 billion beings can help save each other..
norman helped audiences of The Economist coin and debate telecommuting in the 1960s- his purpose was to argue for change in lifelong education ahead of time for every millennial to grow up as a brainworker or performer or last mile community celebrator of all lives matter --most jobs known in the 1960s would have gone just like most jobs changed whenever the motor car replaced the horse and cart- but that did not mean there would be any less work to do to ensure any community a child was born into offered a great chance to thrive norman's arguments weren't different from adam smth's at the start of the first age of humans and machines that was all about the energy machines could bring beyond the power of man or horse- with one big exception- this time the revolution would take 60 years at most- in other words within 3 living generations- youth , parents, grandparents what you needed to learn to have a great life and livelihhod would be wholly different- the risk of education systems examining old stuff instead of empowering teachers and students to exploe the new new world of community engagement, physical and digital classrooms would be all or nothing in terms of sustaining homo sapinens; some now define the 2020s as the age og industrial revolution 4- that fits normans model 1 was macine energy, 2 was machines assisting communications, 3 was what humans did with machines that could compute far more than 1960s as last decade of the slide-ruler, fourth everything would have converged so that operational platforms would be hosted with data crunched in real time -this would co-create public services the likes of which governments could barely imagine unless led by enginneers not lawyers of rules written in stone

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.
