abedMOOC.com started from a brainstorming dinner convened by Japan Ambassador to Dhaka who noticed my father's surveys of Asia Rising begun with Japan 1962 (endorsed by JF Kennedy) had not completely detailed Bangladesh Rural Advancement's  contributions to sustaining humanity and celebrating nation building through women empowerment . Dad's last public birthday party had celebrated launch of Muhammad Yunus Global Social Business Book February 2008 with 40 guests at Royal Automobile Club, St James, London. Father had also paid for sampling 2000 of Yunus books, 10000 dvds (youtube style interviews with all grameen directors during summer 2008 when the Nobel judges opened Yunus Museum in Mirpur, as well as part of launch of 2 Journals by Adam Smith Scholars in Glasgow that had emerged from Yunus making the 250th keynote speech on Adam Smith Moral Sentiments Dec 2008. But Fazle Abed whom my father never got the chance to meet had started 11 years before Yunus Grameen Bank 1983 Ordinance , built health and agricultural foundations, and then schooling -altogether a 5 dimensions approach that was not possible to appreciate from onee dimensional microcreditsummit yunus the clintons, queen Sofia staged annually from 1997. Abed said we could do a Mooc if it was laid out round C for collaborations. He was keen to map how 6  Collabs per the 5 primary sdgs had been integrated through 2 quarters of a century 1972-1995 when rural meant no electricity grids or phones; 1995 when partnering platforms afforded extraordinary leapfrog models that could be designed with mobile networks and solar. It took 16 trips while Abed was alive (and the curiosity og many graduate journalists _ to get this mooc started, and we still try to update it even as Abed left the world in Dec 2019. We welcome corrections and omissions. We have attempted here to map the deepest economic miracle

changing aid to humanity's 3 most exciting cooperations

 Bagladesh was born after  inheriting the double shortest straw of colonisation : Colonised by the british, then partitioning took away access to the region's superport calcutta and made Bengali's a colony of (West Pakistan); by independence in 1971, 90% of the peoples were in villages without electricity; the government barely had resource base to organsiae the 10% of citizens

Fazle Abed had just becose Asia's leading young oil company ma- royal dutch shell's CEO for his homeland- when a cyclone in 1970 killed a million people around him - several months working on disaster relief changed his life; he finished his contract with shell; sold his putney flat; with about 15000 pounds started up Bangladesh Rural Advanacent Cooperation

The cooperation platforms he designed through 25 years serving women villagers without electricity changed aid; wherever possible Abed sought to design business microfranchise business for village mothers not accept (endless) charity; wherein BRAC did grants it designed something world class that others came to benchmark

There was an accident that business schools have never properly taught. Because Abed spent all his funds inititally rebuilding 15000 homes that had been flattened by the war of independence - he was always designing micorfranchises needed to serve meat-villages of 100000 people. This meant that when BRA-C researched eg the most effective lo]cal rice science- it was a significant R&D partner among all Borlaug's green revolution alumni. Bty the 1970s The Economist was publishing that rice was so adaptable that 1000% more pee local community was growable between best and worst adapatation. When the village health's service was iintially built round women doordashing 10 basic medicines (vilage nothers carried thise on foot- each had a weekly map of 300 homes to serve). BRAC became a national wholesaler of basic medicines at the lowest price but good quality. 

Markets that abed designed womens business in were this designed with  accompaniedvalue chains that always integrated their efforts. Historically culture had not expected women to be productive. When a nation wastes half its potential workforce, that's neither social nor economic. Ironically tropical contimenta china was going tyhrough its own version of needing women to bne a sproductive as men. Duie to the one child law half ogf familie's prof=gress depended on the enetrpreneurship oif 20 simeything women. Open souring of solutions that ended vilage poverty was just plain human 1970-1999 - and notably UNICEF leader , an immunologist called James Grant, celebrated such a twinning of female empowered nation building (never leaving out the poorest or most isolated)

25 years after starting brac some partners brought fiurst solar and mobile opportunities. At teh same time silicon valley millennium goal cheerleaders asked Abed to go international. His reposnse was to design a second meta-collaboration platform - a university which he intended to design solutions uniting sustainability graduates the world over.

Its from that perspective we have aimed to curate the 30 most extraordinary cooperations in human development economics. Of course Abed hoped taht his friends and alumni would leap forward with them through what at his death in 2019 was the end of the web 2 era and the last decade of sdgs being possible which millennials see as web3 or year round competitions such as www.sdgmetaverseprize.org . How would abed's 30 cooperations that empowered billion poorest Asian women continue to celebrate heroic entrepreneurial revolution. Abed was very clear - what he had designed was over 100000 global village trainers - educators can change community building bottom up and openly in line with natute. This is not what west top businenss schools teach as financial administration. What it does do is celebrate way above zero-sum networks such as how life critical knowhow multiplies value in application unlike consuming up things. Until we know whether millennials are the first sustainability of the first extinction generation - we hope you will find spending time in Abed and 1 billion womens cooperation platforms joyful as well as productive.


Of course any errors are my reporting chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk ; any imprivements are welcomed; when we first started traveling to bangladesh in 2007 we started playing an annual game with students - if they could choose a pack of 52 worldrecordjobs.com - who'd the other 51 most relevant to abed and billion womens empowerment be.With the 15th annual edition for 2022-2023 we welcome the world's first year round sdg youth competition - www.sdgmetaverseprize.org 



Glasgow Adam Smith scholars who had helped launch out interest with the 250 adam smith moral sentiments lecture have built 2 journals - social busnenss and new economics and have announced that june 2023will celebrate 265th adam smith anniversary with the launch of microeducatiosummit. Abed was always saying value education and cooperation. It took me much longer thatn it should to realsie how closely abed's values aligned with von neumann who my father met in 1951 and was given economics journalists most valuable scoop - what goods will people do with 100 times more tech every decade 1930s through 2020s.



 Lik Abed neumann and dad had seen a lot of bad before they could mediate good. In fact most of the lives of the greatest mathematican netwrk ever was spent on the nuclear bomb race; my dad emmpathised , he spent his last fays as a teenage navigaor allied bomber command , burma campaign. Imagine if the brightest or most energetic young brains got an opportunity to focus on something other than the fisrt half of 20th century' wars. 



Of course there are those who may read did from early 2022 who may say Europe in incapable of ending wars. Well, we have one last leap of 100 times more tech to meta- and mathematically if most peoples nations are not graviated the sustaiability way round each goal, its hard to see 8 billion pesosns will get another better chacce. Its certain what women empowered economics aims to map.

a 90% socil business model is as entrepreneurial as any model you will ever find biut 90% of value is retained to keep serving purpose unique in the world of sustainability- only 10% is taken out; we belive that there is no more valuable entrepreneurial talent than a leadership team that succeeds with 90% sb model; of course their families should enjoy sufficient wealth, health, lifetime security- they should be ceelbrated as teachers/mentors wherever they want that role too

are you interested in mapping 10**5 metavillages

 A metavillage is an economic gravity sustaining 100000 peoples lives. Brac was designed around metavilage back in 1972 typically 15000 village homes- mothers as community builders (of the nation -bangladesh was 90% rural withoutbelectricity grids) operating microfrachsies abed designed - eg rice vilahge enetrprise, local health service/basic medicine distribution microfranchise. Peiority was given to raising life expectancy which bhad begun as 25 yeras below world average as up to a third of infants were dying and maternal health was wretched(mothers were living close to starvation and culturally expecetd to raise large families until at least 2 sons survived) 

three things to note about the scale of the original brac metaviilage

focused on triple e micrifranchsies effective, efficient, expanadable- positive cashflow however small the business- essential (life saving) purposes; once a concept was iteratively tested so that scaled across one metavillage, it was likely to scale across other metavillages

the scale of a metavilage meant that brac was wholesaling one or more key product per microfranchise  - sometimes it also did the product  eg a rice seed it had designed or open sourced (borlaug) to maximise local diversity (up to 1000% production depends on locl adadtpation - see economist article 1977) or in the case of the para health service - initially 10 most basic medicines; in this way as brac scaled nationally it led wholesaler value chains integrated around development of the poorest

clearly if a metavillage meant 15000 business (however small) with positive cash flow- banking would be needed - this was the origin of miucrofinance for good- in effect brac guaranteed a vilage mother would be profitable provided she worked hard and applied the microfranchise (sadly media like the BBC and the famous clinton originated microcreditsummit have condemned microbanking because their producers failed to understand that end poverty microfinace entrepreneurially leads value chains in trust for the poorest by being scaled to integrate human development/ family susdtainability)- see also Economist's Entrepreneurialk Revolution 1976 -would any of 2020s greatest crisies be spinning if education had specified microfrnacises as transparently as what became brac's 100000 training field force united around paulo freire culture

--------------you could look around the world - even to bi cities- where is there an artisan skill that is gravitated by one place even oif most of the livelihoods networked dont reside there; why wouldnt community colleges or universities concerned primarily with sustaining a locality, become alumni NFT identified by the village place name


there are of course lots of ways in our hyperconnected (soon to be web3 metaverse) world to go virtual too with metavilage's goal of sustaining 100000 peoples lives around a creative focus that matches eg zero footprint or provides win-wins by revolving around the sort of action learning that multiplies value in use unlike consuming things; but until the world of places is more peaceful our (WorldRecordJobs) purpose with first metavillage map is to identify gps that are where those connected see as home for the co-creative skill they celebrate bringing to the world so that families grow up

5.5 help assess bottom up view on whats to like on world's biggest climate movements

while we welcome renewed interest in climate among billionnaires and big city exchanges -please help us compare maps of those who edit "bottom billion persons) world from perspective 10000 metavillages of 100000 each- this collab platform began over 30 years ago eg with social forestry (1988) designed by and with the production of the 100000-person women  led metavillages of brac bangladesh

technical note - we include in metavillages when whole islands commit to green and award entrepreneur visas to such an effort

we are also interested where a media platform has a dedicated platform eg

ps we are still looking for on-demand mooc- where there's no linear course just cases rabked by student level off community actions-please say if you have found a contender

notes you don'y need to have artificial intel assistant6 to ask a ceo whos esg commitments include plating a billion trees- is there an app or map to where and what theu are - it turns out that up to half of plant a tree programs are not designed to local exponential sustenance just where its easu to plant trees!! this takes greenwashing and corporate brand purpose to a new level of ignorance

1.5 bkash 3 years starting up bkash.com number 1 cashless bank in population served

 bkash lessons learned 2012-14 (video of Gates review of cashless banking for a billion unbanked) - special thanks to the brothers quadir who are in their 25th year of leapfroging (partnerships in mobile technology to end poverty)  

bkash origins like kenya's mpesa (whose original coder is a director of the holding company of coders of bkash) is the text phone; you pay a mercant money for bkash points; those points can be redeemed with any other merchant- bkash chose many of the most trusted small merchants in vilagesd all over the nation; the application that bkash is used for first is remittances back to the vilage by family members working in teh city or even aboraod (about a third of bangaldesh's freign exchage comes from remittances)
all of teh above explains why bkash is relevant to any poor nation but there remaisn the question why didnt fin tech serve poorest within richer nations

xx my father's last article during subrpime year 2008 asked why no western bank competed to velue poor or even community sustainining finance-
you may call how tech enetered western banking with atms instead of needing to get cash from a bank clerk; the problem with that was banks stoped being community based - as a few national abnkis raced to deliver the atm tech ; worse banks needed a new model to keep their sdtall- issuing credit cards that put most customers in debt was the answer - those who are rich enough never to need credit get freebies from credit cards but in usa most people now have debts at 25% interest (the credit card rate); all the while the basisc costof physical paper records has gone down 10 folds
-so you can see the idea of fintech for community sdg goals is exactly the opposite of teh quasi monoply of western banking -
it turns out that from 1995 finytech and ecommerce multiplied each others impacts (with odd consequences - the web taht had been a space for sharing knowhow now got overtaken by trabscation webs)  - in 1995 there was teh choice amazon made to be worlds largest stockist-delivery leader; asians chose a different rour=te for ecommerce to own the delivery alhgorith to maximsie livelihoods /sme supply chain connectivity ; it was thus natural for 4g sysetms up in china from 2008 to scale taobao/alipay as well as alibaba - potentially models maximiming livelihoods;alipay leapt ahead usig mobile camera to end the need for cards ; and in so doing it chose to amximis value between cistomers ad suppliersd (thus the 3% or so tav that bank cards charge in every digital transcation was redistributed mainly to the peoples) 

however bkash
