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

bkash 1.5 :: asian100 university collab 5.4 - 2012-1972 can fintech support village entrepreneurs end poverty

After my father The Economist's Norman Macrae died, the Japan Ambassador to Bangladesh was kind enough to host 2 remembrance dinner roundtables on the future of sustaining peoples chaired by sir fazle abed - we heard about bkash (see this brochure published by brac explaining the system fazle abed so bkash as leapfroging) and the collaboration of Asian 100 Universities.
To Abed who had spent 40 years asking his staff to maintain meticulous records which could go as low as 5 cents saving and 1 dollar loans , how organisational and customer record keeping went digital needed to be integral to future of how billion women empowerment designs the first sustainability generation. 
 These two inter-generational networking opportunities (10 times lower cost banking for the very poorest; uniting asian graduatesd around leapfrog model old siloised professors were unlikely to be the first to entrepreneur!) were as far as I can see:  the most exciting updates to my father's life diaries of entrepreneurial human/community endeavour- from being a teenage navigator in allied bomber command stationed in myanmar to charring to any leader off the record who had time for a lunch in St James on Friday's (the main day journalists of the weekly newspaper brainstormed news worthy of leadership mediation)    -more in footnote
Banking for a billion unbanked was the main concept Muhammad Yunus debated at dad's last public lunch roundtable with 40 young entrepreneurial minnds Royal Automobile Club Februrary 2008 during Dr Yunus book tour ( my family smapled 2000 of his books to university students and 10000 dvds with short interviews of grameen leaders the week the Nobel judges came to celebrate the future of Bnagaldesh youth summer 2008)- see brochure. In 2009 we staged the first interntaional birthday party for Dr Ynunus. The BBC's number 2 nature broadcaster (Paul Rose) attended as did the then education ead at British Embassy, and two invited from BRAC - the founder of Brac Bank and a lady who worked with abed on Brac;s corporate identity. Choosing the mauve color became very timely once bkask mauve bird logo becaome the nation's most visible icon. 





Footnote-
Before the computer Adam Smithian economists questioned what future system designs economists compound and whether they fit with nature's system including health and cultural ways local peoples mediate diversity of local resources and trading flows. My father was old school - he sought to mediate future histories not how much can one side extract from everyone else every quarter, 

Dad's first markets' future history survey The Next 40 years was published in 1972. After his 15rh year at The Economist he was permitted one signed survey a year - his first series were mainly of the future of nations sdtarting with his old enemy Japan 1962. He was deleighted (as was President Kennedy) to find that Jpana was netowrking 2 Asia Rising modles one for sdgs of vilages; one for technology multi-wind trades and designs of supercities around small enterprise supply chains.

 

Dad first started debating futures of Asian Village sustainable development (Rural Keynesianism) in The Economist 1962 - consider models Japan (Taiwan, Korea) were applying particularly thanks to Borlaugs gift of up to 10 times more productive local agricultures (especially in rice)> Dad was one of last journalist to meet Von Neumann (whose biographer he became). The question of what 100 times more tech every decade would do to every human being became the greatest human interest story of Norman Macrae's work and The Economist's founding purpose -sdgs 1 & 2: end hunger (eg end corn laws mid 19th century), end poverty (eg design banking by and for indian people out of calcutta- see pilot project queen victoria/James Wilson  

Footnote- James died  in calcutta of diarrhea 9 months after arriving with charter bank) but his son-in-law as second editor helped Queen Victoria morph the english constitution (london capitaliusm) from slave trading empire to commonwealth, This didnt happen fast enough to prvent the world trade of 7 white empiresd ending in 2 world wars but it was in line with Adam Smith's moral mapmaking of hi-trust markets by and for all peoples
