we first started publishing the good hub guide in 2007 -our model was a bit like the consumers association good food guide - we wanted potential customers to report how collaborative hubs really were - the difference was -we didnt know then and dont know now - whether most economic hubs are virtual or real- it also seems that it depends how many you aim to collaboratively scale . For example if you can afford to plant 100000 like Mhammad Yunus achieved with TheGrameenBank in Bangladesh then you start with real places - the poorest villages in the world to be your social labs- then you invite all the most massively resourced technologists to come visit and linkin to solving one of human sustainability's biggest challenges

What would world miss without Jean-Daniel Muller?

JDM is founder of www.SielBleu.org . He acts as open network coordinator of how sportsmen who didn't quite become superstars  can co-create jobs for themselves and turn youth's passion for sports into community impacts worldwide. See www.sielbleu.com for news of up to 27 international extensions of network's French origin. View[i] video from 2011 EU social business summit -fellow speakers include : Yunus and the connections he sees with celebrating youthful stars born at social business competitions

Part of JDM video

Thank you Commissioner Barnier for asking us to be an example of European Social Business. Siel Bleu started 14 years ago in Strasbourg - my friends and I were finishing our studies - our problem we were going to become sports teachers - but there were 45000 students who wanted to teach sports but only 5% who end up doing soSo we decided to look at how to involve elderly in sports training whom nobody else seemed interested in - things require structure so we formed an association to make service available to everyone both hi and low income. At start everybody though us mad- getting people in retirement homes involved in sports impossible - so we decided we would do itWe were helped at local level by regional council 6 months funding for 12 retirement homes after which we'd need to be sustainable with our customers. -6 months down road: 11 establishments said must continue; in the other that had a budget problem, the old people went on strike demanding we continue! Fast forward: today we've created 300 jobs in France for sports for elderly reaching about 70000 peopleAnd we have passed on franchise to other European countries. We're getting services to the people so physical activity is part of everyday life of the elderly in Ireland, Spain, Belgium-. Yes each country has had to have a different association structure - limited liability company in Ireland - foundation in Spain etc. But important thing is to get same service to same target group. We have built a database on 3000 exercises that can help with particular illnesses, More and more customer networks for sports coaching are evolving as our demands to share networks in 27 countries::cancer : working with Marie Curie - all kinds of scientific studies show you can reduce cancer recurrence by up to 50% if you get involved in exercise. 60 billion Euro Opportunity across EU: crisis/funding cases - study conducted recently across 4 European countries on diabetes and prevention of fractures - shows that if you do regular physical activities - you can save 60 billion euros from annual health budgets we now have

Important to find people who share our values and see the end beneficiary as most important, Commitment is our main reward . We celebrate the service view that the best kind of person is one who can be of use to maximum number of people

Norman Macrae Foundation: relevant next actions http://jobscompetitions.ning.com   Since Lord Seb Coe made his Singapore Promise in 2005, we have wanted to see consequence of London Olympics as freeing BBC (and any public media) to celebrate what youth superstars can inspire all the way down to communities and not just at moments of Olympic glory. The role of the BBC as the world's largest social business - can be freed if opinion leaders at www.wholeplanet.tv like Chris Patten, Danny Boyle and Seb Coe act now to help youth fully value the future of heroines and heroes.

if you want to design new structure , an idea is: young people and education and reorienting system so entrepreneurship is central to the system, Help students to see they can be job givers as social business entrepreneurs, not just job seekers from businessesMore specifically why couldn't all schools explain 2 kinds of entrepreneurship -to make money, OR to change the world ... and you can also do both but only if youth know its ok to celebrate entrepreneurs who change the world---more specifically why dont we have 2 kinds of business school curricula:MBA that specialise in extracting profits, making money in short-termSocialMBA preparing for how to solve problems through businesses. Study Social Business - all technicalities and measuring impact of social business- where the ceo will be asked how much impact made this year made, and how much more impact next year on the specific goal the SB is designed aroundAnother way to energise youth is through Social Business competitions design. Why not an EU championship: each country will identify their own champion designers and eu can help transfer and service franchises knowhow between country championsOnce you can design then you can implement- designing is most important issue; here we are not seeking money from EU. its recognition youth need. And encouragement by removal of legal barriers so citizens can come up with their own innovations. The issue is how convinced are citizens by EU that its OK for they the citizens -and the communities - to find ways to solve problems. Does the EU agree that government is not only entity involved in creating solutions to life-shaping service problemsThe student SB competition is the vehicle, then once you have seen winning designs - and the passionate commitment of youth - you can create funds .If somebody has great idea its funding can be local, private, created by foundation, or gov. There is also so much Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) money that goes out promoting something - why not encourage companies to put some of their CSR money into funds- eg Credit Agricole is in process of establishing SB fund.

 . Getting real  in 2012 about segmenting countries jobs: Germany needs to understand the advantages of being different from the rest of Europe not force what makes it economical on others; it also needs to get real about inviting other europeean nations to reduce their spends on defence while increasing its. UK needs to demand that those who help promote the olympics reduce spends on ads (the least economical media and collaborate in job creating media); it also needs to take Sir Ronald Cohen's lead in demonstrating how 100 billion dolars of charitable assets can actionably invest in youth now instead of maintain ivory towers. Spain needs to be led by Queen Sofia's love of youth job creation not politicians cutting investments in youth; Belgium as epicentre of the drive to www.entrepreneurialunion.com m needs to join in partnerships which involve youth in searching out which social solutions to produce in which communities; France (with europe's portals to how microcredit and global partnering in sustainability) and scotland (with a love of nurses and girl power and journals search to renew community through celebrating social action: service by the people for the people ) can help belgium> Moreover, the dna of entrepreneurial revolution began with these auld allies in late 18th century and has been joyously renewed by these countries partnerships with dr yunus over the last 7 years. Austria can be an interesting mediator of potential conflicts between all of the above .

sam I am trying to work out what little help we (2000 readers of dr yunus books) can be to the world changing agendas you are in midst of now that banks and nations are collapsing all over europe and the world

 

idea 1 zasheem's and yunus eldest microeconomics friends and compatriots summit in glasgow with dr yunus on july 4 will assemble every adam smithian in scotland and beyond- so who could you best nominate to give us 10 minute slide show on queen sofia's research agendas up to her world microcredist summit - is the number 1 agenda search for 50 countries to start replicating jamii bora http://londoncreativelabs.com/blog/ , or is it how to stop spain collapsing as biggest country at wrong compound exponential end of euro (scotland was of course the fiurs modern day nation to lose its independence to a banking scam circa 1700 and preventing that is why adam smith mapped the hi-trust community rising free marklet designs that he did)

 

as well as 10 minute slides to 300 audinece in glasgow's university's most historic speakers corner, a few pages for publication of proceedings is welcomed; also zasheem's network has previously hosted a meeting around paul krugman so I assume paul (a,long with a nine year old http://www.youtube.com/caplinski#p/a/u/1/FKXXsINFoHQ the only other nobel prize winner to call teh subprim crsis before it burst) would be happy to get a copy of your presentaion and at teh same time we could try and revitalise a component of the princeton students microfinance club in time for next years aintake; both caitlin and lucas are intrepriod graduating economist conecrned with bailout whom I spent many hours with alst summer when I thought dr yunus 69th boirthday doalogue of sofia's was supoosed to help youth ambassadors of 09/10 start anto bailout student clubs;  obvioiusly I got the timing wrong; IO gather 2010/11 is scale up time fopr youth ambassadors to be planted acros us colleges

 

idea 1 a- is some part of results also connected to the 60 country entrepreneur summit process of obama; if so how do we get someone to do a 10 minute talk on that

 

idea 2 my understanding is jonathan has a vibrant hub in madrid; I am sure that if we knew what queen sofia's resarch agenda is we could both make sure that there is at least one hot desk in madrid trying to be like a newspaper correspondent to what news and info is being gravitated around queen sofia as she both gtries to end poverty and end meltdlown of spanish peoples financial services around the world; and equally across jonathans hubs we can identify spanish speaking people interested in being linked in

Women in Bangladesh
Millions of women in Bangladesh have benefited from Grameen Bank

A radical form of banking pioneered in Bangladesh could be brought to Scotland to help people out of poverty. But legal uncertainty may scupper the plans by Professor Muhammad Yunus to offer small business loans to people without collateral. The Nobel Peace Prize-winning economist fears the benefits system could stop the Grameen Bank coming to Glasgow.

A documentary, Scotland's Brand New Bank will be broadcast on BBC One on Tuesday 7 July at 2235 BST.

The Department of Work and Pensions has not been able to say what would happen to claimants' welfare payments if they took out a loan.

Mr Yunus started the micro-finance revolution in Bangladesh with a loan of $27 in 1976 - since then his Grameen Bank expanded to 38 countries and become a global success story. Run entirely for the benefit of its customers and with executives that neither own shares nor earn bonuses, the Grameen Bank claims to be able to serve the unbankable and offer real hope to the needy. Mr Yunus said: "We lend money to the poorest people, poorest women in Bangladesh. No collateral, no guarantee, no lawyers, and it works." Poverty has been cut in Bangladesh with these tiny business loans to millions of poor women who support each other in groups of five. Repayment rates are more than 98% and bankers visit borrowers every single week - by bicycle.

Grameen Glasgow will be based in a community-run centre in the Sighthill area of the city, where more than 59% of children live in workless households with up to four generations unemployed. There are plenty of ideas there already from women keen to take out loans. For example, Maureen McBain wants to start a café. She said: "I'd need my pots, my pans, my dishes. Also I'd have to take a food hygiene course which I'm quite looking forward to."

But the biggest hurdle for Grameen Glasgow could prove to be the welfare system, which Frank Field MP said is designed to stop people striking out on their own.

Professor Muhammad Yunus
Professor Yunus is worried the benefits system may cause problems

The former Minister of Welfare Reform told BBC Scotland: "We're not supporting people who are trying to succeed, we only reward people if they don't try. That's a wicked, wicked system." Nobody at the Department of Work and Pensions has been able to explain what flexibility - if any - might be available for Grameen borrowers.

Mr Yunus said: "The problem we try to avoid is welfare and I don't think we can avoid it in Glasgow. We are not worried about the cultural part of it, because we always create a counter culture. "Our problem is the legal issue. Does the law also allow someone to take a loan when you are still in welfare?" He added: "If it works in every single country, why can't it work in Glasgow, why can't it work in Scotland?"

The professor is a founding member of the Magnus Magnusson Fellowship, set up by Glasgow Caledonian University in honour the writer and broadcaster to award scholarships for students or researchers.

Pamela Gillies, principal and vice-chancellor of Glasgow Caledonian University, is working with Grameen and interested Sighthill residents on the launch of the bank in Scotland. She said: "We have some of the worst health inequalities in the developed world. "A large number of people on disability allowance, we have a very large proportion of the population who are unemployed and are seeking work and so all of these things coming together means that we have a huge amount of talent and resource." She added: "This model is an opportunity to give them practically real cash and real hope."

Social Investment Scotland Chairman Ray Perman said it was considering channelling substantial amounts of Scottish government money into the new bank as start-up capital. "I think if we can somehow enthuse people with the vision of getting over this terrible problem we've had for three decades now, of eradicating poverty and under-achievement in Glasgow we could make it work," he said. "People would come to that cause and try it and let's face it, until now things have not worked, so trying something new, even something new coming from Bangladesh, has to be worth a shot."

Grameen networks I know to exist : Grameen Creative Lab Berlin, Grameen Creative Lab Glasgow. It is yet unclear how the orioginal HEC-SNBA of paris fits in though all 3 got the licence to educate by first matchmaking a duture capitalism partner for Yunus

Youth partnerships: Norway - Grameen-Nobel

MicroGreen networks I know to exist : ashden awards (london) run by Lord John Sainsbury's elder daugter, patron Prince Charles, Grameen-level media relations BBC broadcaster and Polar Explorer: Paul Rose

British Council: I have met staff of BC vibrantly supporting DR Yunus celebrations in both London and Dhaka and am hopeful that BC's brilliant work in education may cross-fertilsie with Grameen and BRAC's briliant works in these areas. Leading UK youth mentor Sofia B and I started publishing world citizen gudies in education before Dr Yunus' Nobel prize - we still rank education projects at Lucknow India and out of New Zealand to China and beyond as being in the same premier league of investing in children as greatest sustainaility investment of them all

Social Business Funds I hear likely to open in 2010 link out of paris and monaco; there is also http://www.danonecommunities.com and I have visited in Dhaka the future capitalism partnerships of Paris's Danone and Veolia- they are two of the most extraordinarly lively businesses I have seen in 35 years of working on global branding.

Dont forget a swedish lass and english guy (and their 6.1 million twitter followers) whose pop music fundraised for 2 bangaldeshi replications so far or India's Aravind ten times lower cost Eye Care hospital 

There is likelihood of even more exciting German partnerships of Grameen launching in 2010- watch this space for mosquito nets breaking through the patent cost that UN charities have to pay per net, childrens nutritional pills, no shoeless child world cup -some will happen given the 100% track record so far of Grameen's chief concept implementer. 

Looking forwasd to 2011, Queen Sofia in Spain has already commited madrid as the world microcredit host and is personally involved in souther hemisphere acceleration of true microcredit knowledge having invited Ingrid Munro of Kenya's Jamii Bora and kenya microcreditsummit to meet in Madrid may 2009. I count nobody as a friend more committed to accelerating replication of true Bangaldeshi micro franchises than Vivian Norris De Montaigu whose goal of a billion person yunusmovie is still possible for 2011.

    How Spain is collaborating in 2010s - youths most exciting decade

    Spain is becoming  very important area for dr yunus and all youth's social business networks connecting round his vision to make 2010s most exciting decade whether your decade's main race is to poverty museums or job creation for your children; rsvp info@worldcitizen.tv if you have collaboration networking news on spains connections


    WHERE THE PEOPLES CAPITALISM BLOSSOMING

    one reason why spain is so influential is queen sofia has always been the number 1 royal supporter of dr yunus; spanish speaking countries and africa have a southern hemisphere alliance personally brokered by queen sofia who celebrated the extraoridnary advance for world banks for youth that kenya has mobilised www.jamiibora.org through this year's www.microcreditsummit.org  


    moreover if my (dad's www.worldeconomist.net ) analysis of the collapsing Euro is correct, spain is now the biggest country in Europe most desperately needing yunus-type economics; it should be a great place to sign up the sorts of global partners and job creation networks yunus is looking for www.worldcitizen.tv - queen sofia has already helped host one Barcelona meeting of yunus and corporations and universities; she is also guest host of the world microcreditsummit in spain towards end of 2011


    one of my interests is to map the league of countries round europe and beyond that is best to be a young person in for connecting the 2010s s most excitong decade - the ones where we return sustainability and job creation to everyone including mindsets of the investment world - ie the core purpose economics ought to be systemised around if I understand why free market followers of Adam Smith have worked tirelessly and joyfully for 250 years-


    2011 sees a new journal celebrating that with its editorial centre close to the principal of Glasgow University -which has a world trade interest in defining the networking economics course young people most want to study and action worldwide - as with adam smith's diffusion the entrepreneurial bonds of the auld alliaace of france and scotland have leadership roles cross Europe to play which we welome reciprocating with Free Spain  


    I cant offer much funds but I am now looking for people in spain who want to  report monthly any events for the next month (or major mjot happenings) relevant to collborating round social business world. The idea would be as good news correspondents they linkin action-news circulation with Zasheem - dr yunus and Free Bangaldesh compatriot -  who has helped make scotland one of the top 3 yunus partnering nations, and lesley in s.africa a core animator of jonathans hub network (now famous on cnn and studied as  a benchmark case on the white house's attempt to exchange microentrprenuship community grounded actions between 60 nations) http://www.youtube.com/caplinski#p/u/14/idn4vCtJ0Hs here is context of my understanding of why we started this project with dr yunus new york 2008


    meanwhile, dad's view always was the 2010s would be the decade where the compound opportunities and threats of integrating localities into  globally networked world got played out with irreversible conseqeunces for all future genertions; I think this is a story everyone growing up today should be excited peer to peer network so they know the choice that is being made by what economics rules us; back at the start of the 2000s I tried to develop hi-trust networks as a volunteer editor of the EU's www.knowledgeboard.com  ; it emerged that the top of the EU wasnt helping but some cities were trying to use knowledge and tech to collaborate humanly and create jobs; top of that capitals league was barcelona; I still have quite a  lot of stuff on the 3 day event that the worlds leading knowledge management gurus conveged on barcelona to study irs supoerb examples of world citizenry

    16.0 Housing For the Poor
      Grameen Bank introduced housing loan in 1984. It became a very attractive programme for the borrowers. This programme was awarded Aga Khan International Award for Architecture in 1989. Maximum amount given for housing loan is Tk 15,000 (US $ 218) to be repaid over a period of 5 years in weekly instalments. Interest rate is 8 per cent. 673,573 houses have been constructed with the housing loans averaging Tk 13,097 (US $ 190). A total amount of Tk 8.82 billion (US $ 208.48 million) has been disbursed for housing loans. During the past 12 months (from July'08 to June09) 16,678 houses have been built with housing loans amounting to Tk 193.24 million (US $2.80 million).
    The State of the Microcredit Summit Campaign Report 2009 reports that by December 31, 2007, 3,552 MFIs reported of reaching 154,825,825 clients with a current loan. Of these borrowers, 106,584,679 were among the poorest when they started with the microcredit program. This achievement is the fulfillment of a goal set a decade ago. Approximately 90.6%of the poorest clients reported are in Asia, a continent that is home to approximately 63.5% of the world's people
    living on less than US$ 1 a day

    hi


    decided that temporarily a blog might be the best way to make a directory to grameen (and then brac and jamii bora) transoparent - say if you would like to iccasionally edit it http://mapgrameen.blogspot.com


    mostofa- are there any editings to the text below in terms of who have I left out at a primary level inside grameen?

    ============================

    Back in 1976, 4 people founded a project which became constituted by Bangladesh law as Grameen rural bank for the poor in 1983 to be owned by the poorest. The founding four are at Grameen Today

  • Muhammad Yunus
  • Professor Latifee- responsible for Grameen Trust: international replications of microcredit
  • Dipal Barua -number 2 in Grameen Bank Bangladesh and entrepreneurial leader of the hugely signifcant Grameen Shakti (Energy)
  • Mrs Nurjahan Begum, responsible for staff, 16 decisions culture and training, and entrepreneur of vocational education -Shikkha, and sooon Grameen Employment Agency
  • Kazi Islam is the only person at a top entrepreneurial position to have come from outside - he leads the hugely influential mobile projects for the poor division - Grameen Solutions (This is different from Grameen Phone -Bangladesh's largest company - which is mainly an outside venture)
  • Lamiya Morshed is coordinator of Yunus Centre and so in charge of how Dr Yunus' diary worldwide fits together
    There are many other significant rural businesses that developed between 1983 and 2006 including housing, fisheries and agriculture, knitwear, telephone ladies, and Grameen Kalyan. Om winning the Nobel Prize in 2006, Dr Yunus challenged worldwide CEOs to invent a more economic global marketing than advertising by innovating the most responsible partnerships their highly resourced organisations could connect with a grassroots provider of life critical services. This has resulted in a CEO benchmarking club that is growing by 10-20 members a year - whilst exploring all vital services, grameen's ability to connect healthcare together is the first newly rising area
  • Mr Sultan leads Grameen Health and also ensures that many of the new social business partnerships sustain at least 10 times more economic systems than has ever been developed before. In the case of Grameen Veolia, it appears that clean drinking water is now being offered at 80 times lower cost than has previously been commercially been sustained. Yes We Can confidently look forward to new social business records being set as the free market of ending poverty is connected around the world.

Can I meet you to discuss how to party this good news with brand gurus uSA?
    7:53 pm edt 

    Hi Zasheem


    Trust Grameen Creative Lab Glasgow and Social Businesss catalogung Epicentre, and Adam Smith whole truth maps reborn,  are going well .Posting today dad's copy of sunshades on october - his 1960s book on how big power within every elder generation pays academics to cock up economics the next generation's youth and poorer needs-  looks as if dr yunus didnt read the copy I gave him on British Council and lord kinnock day; I will also send our dialogue report which gave lots of entries in to discussing the war between macroeconomics and microeconomics, the yes we can challenge to prevent going back to wall st; 2009 the year of humanity's greatest sustaianbility crisis or opportunity


    belatedly, just being a simple maths guy,  I understood why the royal automobile club launch in feb 08 turned out not to be a great open space for micro economics to flourish; I hadnt previously known how far The Economist had slipped since the days my father mentored folk to question every systemic thing indluding then youngsters - rupert pennant rea - now chairman of the Economist and former deputy head of bank of engalnd; Baroness Hogg chairwoman of 3i; marjorie scardino chairman of pearson including financial tuimes; Viscount Matt Ridley - science editor at The Economist; Andrew Neil BBC and scottish broadcaster


    but in this greatest economics crisis year of all time, I do start to wonder what sort of inquiry space one needs to create to get the fully skinny on economics grounded in practicve demonstartions from dr yunus


    chris macrae  http://groups.google.com/group/bestmicro


    one of my dad's favourite stories involves british council's lord knnock


    -After 50 years of reporting on parliament, let me end with my favourite story which shows it just as an elephant's joke. The story is denied by the two self-credulous politicians concerned, but confirmed by the Americans who observed it. One day in the mid-80s, a party of American tourists was as usual being shown reverently around the palace of Westminster. The Lord Chancellor of England appeared in full gig on a staircase above them, and he needed to talk, on some matter of altering a timetable, to the Right Hon gent's successor as Labour leader who was disappearing down a corridor the other way. so Lord Chancellor Hailsham, in full-bottomed wig and black and gold robe, called to the other by his Christian name. Over the heads of the American tourists, he bellowed "Neil".


    Instantly, and without hesitation, all the American tourists in the middle fell fully to their knees. A similar obsequiousness is not required to all the forecasts I have shouted at you this evening. A small genuflection will suffice to the simple rule by which your generation could octuple Britain's real national income during the 40 years of marvellously increasing computer technology which will be your working lives. That rule, sir, is never, never, allow politicians to pinch and spend more than a quarter of GDP. Everything will be so easy for the poorest of your contemporaries if only you understand that."


    Growth depends on never letting politicians spend more than one quarter of GDP

    FC- Future Capitalism is defined by Dr Yunus as a partnership between one of the world's most resourced organisations and a grassroots network serving life critical needs of which BRAC and Grameen in Bangladesh are world leaders from perspectives of microeconomics and sustainability investment's exponential futures. Such a partnership is governed by social business metrics and valuation multipliers ensuring that a postive cashflow is reinvested in example of the greatest sustainability that the global sector can offer..How's your Exponentials IQ? For most people its the lowest of their IQs. This explains addictions to many products so-designed to as well as compound impoversishment of customers and societies.


    The world's first Future Capitalism partnership is recognised as Grameen Danone. In the first 18 months of active worldlwide searches about 25 Future Capitalism partnerships appear to have been signed up by Dr Yunus. Soon the mass of CEOs involved in this benchmarking club will reach critical mass with the conseqeunce that the reputation of big corporate brands that are slow to join in will be downgraded. In effect, Future Capitalism reaches a higher order of goodwill multiplication than Corporate Social Responsibility could ever do. FC's Reality Marketing with the greatest responsibility your sector can lead is far wiser use of marketing budgets that ads image-making.

    As Future Capitalism partnerships mark their card of which trillion dollar global markets feature at least one FC benchmark- laggard sectors should be questioned by the public & youth networks in particular.

    .Can you survey 3 friends on the creativity of 10 times more economic?

    This is a survey that needs celebrating wherever people socialy network but most urgently by European friends of Grameen and Bangladesh as that country's export of creative labs blossoms across European cities. The sustainability citizens duty to network around questions was launched nearly 3 years ago with Yunus Forum network movement whose first European agents of this dialogue across cities were Mostofa Zaman and Sofia Bustamante. The next debrief of connecting this to the brilliant innovations in economics that Bangladesh has compounded over a third of a century focuses on youth ambassadors - june 29 Dhaka 

    Proof of the Yogurt: This extract from Yunus recent talk at wharton shows and hot news in Shanghai: factor 1 of social business being 10 times more economical is no need to spend 5 times more money on advertising your product than making it. With most of US tv media being propped up by 15 minutes of ads per hour, that nation isnt going to be where creativity labs start 

     SKIP THE RAZZLE DAZZLE: BRAND VALUE: Once you are in social business, lots of costs go down because you don't need to incur them. For example, you don't do any elaborate or fancy marketing because people know what you are doing and they are interested in it. So you don't have to go on television and be in the newspaper. We are here.

    "Life is meaningless without eating Shakti Doi?" We don't say that. We explain what it is as the people come, and gradually this spreads. And that's it.

    In our design, we made sure that extra costs are cut off. For example, we made it a very small plant so that you don't produce too much.

    Around our own plant, there are enough consumers to buy (the product so that we don't have) to move it long distances.

    EVERYBODY CAN CREATE SEEDS OF SOCIAL BUSINESS BRAND 

    ...So development of the seed is the most important thing in social business.

    We have already been approached by India. We have been approached by China. They would like to have Grameen Danone in (these countries) because they have the same problem.
    Our idea is to have many, many, many small plants all around the country so that you reach out to everybody. We want to have about 50 plants to cover all the children in Bangladesh. Each one is self-contained. Each one makes money.

     

     

    .Revisiting why brand seeding was marketing's best kept secret back in 1992.

    Seeding approach to brand communications

    Contributor - Chris Macrae

    This conference presentation was first developed in the early 1990s by Chris Mole and Chris Macrae. It subsequently became one of the skeleton outlines used to form the BBC2 television programme : The Ice Cream Wars.

    We have left this classic presentation in its 1992 form.

    1. What is brand seeding?

    Process: refraining from mass marketing expense (until the essence of a great brand image has been planted)

    Background : back in 1992, I was the first and last brand consultant coopers & lybrand management consultancy hired. Even in the context of commercial brands, seeding was the most economical way to launch new brands. With hindisght I was naiive in not anticipating how the advertising industry would destroy any forum attempting free speech on this issue, but I still dont understand why economists wouldn't come out on the side of seeding. I had a few years earl;ier briefed the joiurnalist who did The Economist's survey "THe Year of the Brand". That was the last time The Economist actually asked about the economy of what sort of marketing is systemised even though its founders origin in 1843 was exactly that duty. Suggestion- we need to launch The MicroEconomist in Bangladesh and European Creative Labs need to help viralise celebrating subscription to 10 times more economical. 10 Times more economical marketing is Bangladesh's unique gift to the world that has compounded sice the nation's birth in the early 1970's. I dare suggest that the sustainability of every future child depends on getting the profession of economics back to mapping 10 times more economical instead of 10 times less.

    Grameen CL Germany has come up with a wonderful idea. Let's make a future diary of all of Europe's greatest anniversaries in histiory, and the day before each celebrate the best news for the world of 10 times more economical. Example : do this the day before the 20th anniversary of the wall's fall. Better yet if Nov 09 could be the fall of wall street too! Old Wall Street's normalcy is as broke now as dad and my 1984 forecast's that communism was a broke system. Did we really need to spend 25 years proving that:

    extreme capitalism and extreme communism are one and the same system failure spun entirely for a few people at the top and the speculators that hire professions to rule over numbers of the big get bigger

    the 21st century need to grow up with a celebration of the end of the age of overgovernment

    UK MP Expenses debate May 2009: Whichever way are faced with a party whose members are not worthy of our trust. None of them is worth my vote. It's time we became far less governed by anyone - we don't need the politicians to run our services when we could administer them so much better ourselves. This is the beginning of the end of overgovernment and a good thing too. (Please see Norman Macrae's The 2024 Report
