Social Business Companies

Social business, as the term had once been commonly used, was first defined by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Prof. Muhammad Yunus and is described in his books Creating a world without poverty—Social Business and the future of capitalism and Building Social Business—The new kind of capitalism that serves humanity's most pressing needs.

Grameen Companies – Precursor to Social Business

Professor Yunus started developing different businesses of Grameen group besides the Grameen Bank in late 1980s. The venture in those businesses gradually resulted in most recent social business. Therefore, those businesses could be seen as sort of precursor of the present day social businesses of Grameen.

motivations of Yunus' 5 biggest publicists- USA's sam, vidar, alex; Euro's Hans and Saskia


Motivations of 5 publicists of Yunus - rough notes- your corrections welcome - skype chrismacraedc ; we particularly welcome linkedin attributions for The World Record Book of Job Creatorsin which we map Yunus top 10 role as the good news broadcaster of the net generation-the only man in the middle of 1000 life critical concepts (at war with the ad agency world who spend half a trillion dollars a year on concepts targetted at making the world more expensive and big brothered). A tricky game unless you have back up friends collecting info on the risks of who's greenwashing who



In the beginning there was sam. Early in 1980s he founded results a grassroots network for citizens to lobby us congress - he had been inspired the goals of the US Hunger Project.In the late 1980s both the Clinton's and Sam discovered stories of Yunus progress out of Bangladesh ; separately the mother pf Obama had started replicating grameen type models in Indonesia (see Anne Durham film ); and Alex Counts went to work as a journalist in Dhaka. Soon he helped Yunus structiue a newsletter Grameen Dialogue. Several hings happened in 1996 that were remarkable:

A compatriot of Yunus brought him a partnership which established Grameen Phone

Yunus chatted to America's veteran source of solar knowledge Neville Williams and started up Grameen Energy (Shakti)

The Americans invited the great and the good around the world to celebrate microcreditsummitas an annual millennial goals event staging Yunus as chief cheerleader. The first summit in 1997 was accompanied by Alex Counts coming back to USA to start the fundraising Grameen Foundation. Yunus was soon seeking another fundraising agent Vidar Jorgenssen (a commercial organiser of US's larges healthcare conferences). Sam continued to lobby - helping get yunus the nobel prize and presidents and congress gold medal awards. Alex continued to raise up to 25 million dollar a year for various non-Bangladeshi projects he ran. Vidar became the  person Yunus placed on boardroom partnerships with people like Carlos Slim in Mexico and John Mackey at his Wholeplanet Foundation aligned as the conscious vision of the Whole Foods supermarket chain.

Yunus spent more and more of his time searching out technology partnerships to form project labs in the bangladesh villages. By the time of his Nobel Prize his speech mentioned the social business model through which he wished to connect hundreds of microfranchise solutions in every life critical service area. The Germans Hans & Saskia became his world publicists in 2009 ...

Questions to German Economists from families and worldwide youth interested in Gross World Product

1 how can any place grow if its capital structures are blocked from investing in next generation's productivity?

2 do you know this about economics- world trade as such doesnt grow the human race- through history only new energy sources and new collaboration technologues have. ,,2012 is 40th year of The Economist's Entrepreneurial Revolution debate- how youth of the net generation 1984-2024 have more growth stimuli to play with than any time in history provided older people don't destroy capital flows to them

 3 how is it that the world of millennium goal year 2015 will also look back 70 years and see such joyful/dismal differences between japan economics across its region and german economics across its region

we welcome any answer for mass viralisation  FacebookSocialBusiness


Watch out for Merkelitis; its a virus that conflicts with the 2 greatest findings of keynes and is quite likely to consign a generation of youth across europe to underemployment just when the net generation can be the most productive time to be alive thanks to a million times more collaboration technology that when merkel grew up

 Regarding Keynes 1 Nobody provides a clearer economic analysis of the Merkelitis than Paul Krugman - april 2012 book end depression now-from chapter 1 : Disasters happen -history is replete with floods and famines, earthquakes and tsunamis. What makes this disaster so terrible - what should make you angry - is that none of this need be happening. There has been no plague of locusts; we have not lost our technological knowhow, America and Europe should be richer, not poorer , than they were five years ago.

Nor is the nature of the disaster mysterious. In the Great Depression leaders had an excuse; nobody really understood what was happening or how to fix it. Today's leaders dont have that excuse; we have both the knowledge and the tools to end this suffering

 Keynes 2 reminds us that every value exchange is an economic system - support youth designing their own especially where they linkin to millennium goals youth most want to celebrate the net generation; the beauty about bottom-up entrepreneurial systems is that unsustainable ones fail quickly and so at little cost; this can't be said for errant macroconomic systems which can cost countries their freedoms (eg scotland 1700s; Greece 2012) - and which become too big for any economist to understand the consequences of unless exponential metrics are audited to constantly resolve conflicts,  99% of the world's largest organisations fail to govern compound rsk wholly -Brookings found this out in 2000: risk will compound every year while goodwill, transparency, trust and modeling of above zero-sum purpose are misvalued - see unseen wealth

Any nation whose people and government wanted Dr Yunus as their chief economist would be most fortunate during 2010s - the exciting net generation decade.That one at the most critical juncture of sustaining Asia Pacific www century – Norman Macrae, The Economist’s Unacknowledged Giant

chris macrae 1-301 881 1655 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              1-301 881 1655      

Norman Macrae, The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant, believed wars were the not only the most uneconomic of actions but root caused by some wrong turning made through the abuse of media or in the name of macroeconomics where an erroneous system fix had been made and then spun conflicts which compounded until peoples warred.

Norman was the first journalist of the European Union, of the internet, of the Global "Consider" views that advancing the sustainability of the world could best be linked in by trading openly with Japan in 1962 and ... and Bangladesh 2008. Various Grameen Nations across Europe are sponsored by friends of Norman Macrae and Dr Yunus and the goal of making the 2010s the net generation's most exciting decade - not the decade lost to wars conducted by big banks on communities and youth's futures.
