Future of University - Ning

JOSB is home for valuetrue microcredit ratings inspired by scottish microeconomists- papers relating to our 3 primary criteria:

  • a) is microcredit owned by or in trust for poorest? - journalise why is impact of this vital apart from ensuring value of productivity is sustained (not sucked out);
  • b) every service of the microcredit aims to redesign value chain around the microentrepreneur in ways that minimise risk of being an individual income generator provided you are a hard worker; such microfranchising is arguably the biggest source of 3 billion new jobs that the net generation can co-create if you value the login of our 1984 future history on the net generation
  • every opportunity to integrate technology and energy is attended to since history shows these are the only stimuli that can exponentially advance communities wealth and health
