Hello I am the surviving son of the family of Norman Macrae - arguably the 20th Century's most purposeful future historian (see footnote). I am writing as we are aiming to rebrand all my father's frameworks as www.2025report.com : these include "entrerpreneurial revolution" and 2 Asia Rising models first approved by President Kennedy in 1962. While these have various names my father would term these miraculous development models for billions of people as 1 women empowered rural keynsianism and 2 multi-win coastal hi-tech supercity. We also have 2 journals edited with Adam Smith Scholars out of Glasgow University which is where I mainly relocated dad's library after his death in 2010..Two of dad's scoops in the 1950s were meeting Von Neumann whom he became biographer of and being only journalist at Messina's birth of European Union. Later it was Romano Prodi who mainly translated Entrepreneurial Revolution into Latin languages. I am writing to ask if our work might be convergent with any of your projects including the forbidden curricula I note you may be piloting out of UAustin.org.
Most of Dad's prodigies at The Economist died early and from my viewpoint after its first 150 years it lost its founder James Wilson's purpose which had been SDGs 1 and 2 in the context of changing the English Constitution towards Commonwealth and/or Adam Smithian future purpose. Among partnering contemporaries Giffoird Pinchot and the Naisbitts are still inspiring people and while he won't remember father helped Klaus Schwab in the early days when Davos was about skiing in the morning and hosted roundtables in the evening.
My father's preference to be identified as a future historian evolved first from being a teenage navigator in allied bomber command Burma campaign - and hoping for better futures for next generations. Being in the last class of Keynes by which time Keynes final chapter of General Theory was declaring that the world would be increasingly locked in by the handful of Economists whose theories became constitutional law. Alost as soon as analytic power started increasing 100-fold per decade father got alarmed by an ever increasing takeover of the profession by short-term number crunchers hiring themselves out to vested interests. While I am a statistician DAMPT Corpus Christi- I dont have my father's intellectual capacity. Nonetheless having lived through the exponential timelines we started debating in 1984 I do feel that the 2020s is last chance decade for youth to ever be the sustainability generation.
