all the best to you


Freeing all peoples to maximize opportunities of life/livelihoods;
sustaining this across generations

While economists have built complex tools like currencies, and written up a lot of principles starting with adam smith 1748, we argue that 3 turning points in human progress should be open spaced first wherever students and especially girls learn economics- especially when graduates of big colleges first learn economics

1 Keynes lessons from 1930s
2 The Economist’s lessons from Moon Landing (quarter century after end of world war 2)
3 2008
1 Keynes lessons are simplest –read last chapter of The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money .
If you know this chapter then you can assess whether nay teacher of economics is worth .listening to

Keynes demonstrates that increasingly only economist design system rules that determine what will be possible for a next generation out of places. He therefore concludes- economists are youth’s greatest enemy except where everything they deign has 2 overarching goals:
Better livelihood opportunities for next generation
End poverty (ie end there being places in world which if you are born into you have little chance of making most of life)

Keynes who tutored my father also knew (though it may not be in final chapter) that

Industrial Revolution 1 begun by steam engine had caused some people to progress 200 fold beyond subsistence but other not at all. Also by early 1900s it was clear to get bigger as an industrial nation you needed ever more carbon and iron and other resources- when your country ran out you took it from colonies if you were an empire, or you went to war if you were not a neighbor. In other words although industrial revolution explained huge leaps in human progress, we needed a post-industrial revolution, Actually Jack Ma- particularly his speeches world economic forum 2017 when he announced ali baba Olympics is very clear on all of this

1969 landing on moon
No time could more clearly demonstrate uneven opportunity of IR1- part of world racing to moon, another third of humans still having no electricity grids
Additionally moon landing demonstrated that computing's communications technologies were to be an even greater revolution than industrial revolution- so in 1969 the question was will we now design systems to improve youth livelihoods across generation and end poverty

In 1969, it was evident parts of east were doing well:
Japan korea, superports like hong hong TaiwanSingapore (all led by chiense diaspora)
Father envisioned asian pacific century led by china and which the whole world’s youth could link in celebrating. After all china is one fifth of the world’s people- in 1969 almost all of those people were underemployed but changes (perhaps moon landing being final inspiration) were under way.

In 1969 it was evident that:
Tv mass media was destroying the west’s ability to celebrate local communities; also a frightening thing had happened to social markets like health- in Europe most governments had launched “free” national health services- while this is wonderful idea there was no testing the way anything needs to be to sustain a market; in america the opposite mistake was made- people would get health depending how much they could afford to pay. The other western disaster evident by 1969, countries like usa were spending an additional 20% of everything their people earned on arms – nominally to protect world from nuclear etc. In other words ion every way that usa had been the nation designed to free livelihoods up to 1930s it was spinning away from leading the industrial revolution humans need. Finally note moon landing (ie the success of satellite communications) meant that doubling of how much money and time people spend on communications technologies would continue every 7 years from 1946 to past 2016. That revolution is over 1000 times (2**10) more being spent on communications. That connectivity changes the economics of everything –father called it death of cost of distance; youth of early 21st would need to sustain happjness and livelihoods across borders not just inside nations walls

what happened in 2008 is all major western banks were bankrupted by subprime
its amazing how few economist have owned up to the mistake and changed their rules let alone their teaching
sadly in America and most of Europe (exception iceland- Michael moore movie) the same big banks have been refinanced with the same owners- youth pays for this particularly poorest youth whether this is inner city boys with guns in usa or girls and family builders in many other societies – in other words youth in western nations have been locked into ever less livelihood opportunities just as post industrial revolution co-creation opportunities could be wonderful- they can only get out of this problem if they learn economics (develop peer friendships) from the 2 extremely  innovative livelihood places since 1969 – china and Bangladesh; in addition blockchain was born in 2008; so was alipay and the opportunity that peoples digital currencies would take pack everything lost when west politicians printed paper currencies- to be absolutely clear in the west since world war 2 not only have economists been youth greatest enemy they have designed systems round bad big gets bigger and bipolar political quarrels over social needs but where television has hidden the big problem is find solutions with all this new innovation and by linking in brilliant coders of big data small- and clarifying what purpose of every markets serves future livelihoods and sustainability

not mentioned in above is systems are by definition measured by exponential consequences up sustainably or down towards collapse – nothing could be a less sustainable metric than only ruling a big organisation bu how much profit did it extract over last quarter; in 2000 metrics of unseen wealth were debated at brookings but then president bush banned such research (the maths is pretty simple except its use would end big banking as usual! something aiib will do if its project like 2500 governors of green big bang are linked in by youth searchers now)  – to this day trust and goodwill are not mentioned by western economists though they now explain over 90% of what futures a places is connecting

EIR Reports: Heritage Foundation Holds Event on Globalization with Chinese Characteristics

A number of interesting Chinese scholars were invited to the Heritage Foundation for a forum titled “China's Emerging Role in the World and U.S.-Chinese Relations.” The first panel was led off by Justin Yifu Lin, a former senior economist at the World Bank and presently the director of the Center for New Structural Economics at Peking University. He went through the development of the Chinese economy since the 1970s, when China was one of the poorest countries of the world, giving the comparative figures with the African countries, which were much better off. In those days, he said, 91% of China's production was consumed domestically, while today trade is 50% of GDP. He underlined that China had not accepted the usual shock- therapy/privatization recipes of the so-called “development economics,” but had adopted a gradualist, pragmatic approach to reform. China prohibits the free flow of capital in the capital accounts, Lin said, but has initiated a series of free trade zones, first in Shanghai, and now in Shenzhen, Tianjin, Guangzhou and Fujian. “But it still prohibits foreign investment in the state-owned enterprises.” China initiated the Belt and Road, Lin said, because, as a rising nation, it felt it had a responsibility to the rest of the world, and instead of extending “gifts,” it decided to extend development cooperation. “China now produces half the infrastructure that is built in the world and is shifting much of its holdings in Treasury bills into infrastructure loans,” he said. As most of the BRI recipients are poor countries, he noted, they will achieve very high growth rates initially, thus securing the loans.
Lin was followed by the Cato Institute's James Dorn, who went on about how private property is necessary for development and the institution of the “rule of law”. Dorn also quoted from some Daoist writings to prove that the laissez-faire principle of Adam Smith also existed in Chinese culture. Ironically, free- market enthusiast Dorn also publishes articles by Justin Lin.
The next panelist was Wen Yi, the Assistant Vice President and senior economist at the Federal Reserve in St. Louis. He effectively refuted Dorn's free-market analysis with the real history of the growth of commerce and capitalism, starting from the Renaissance, during which the monarchs (or the magnates) promoted the development of trade. He also pointed to the function of infrastructure investment as a spur to commerce, in this instance, through the construction of canals. Later on this was pushed further into a second industrialization through the government-supported construction of railroads. Wan Yi had earlier contrasted China's development with the attempt to achieve development “take-off” by other development countries who, unlike China, had adopted the “free market model” — with catastrophic results. He also went through the long process to achieve “human rights” here in the United States, through the 100 years' fight to eliminate slavery, the struggle of women's right to vote, up until the recent Congressional legislation that apologized for the treatment meted out to Native Americans, just to underline that such processes don't always occur overnight. While no one on either panel went after China on the human rights issue, this may have been an attempt on his part to parry any such moves.
During the Q&A, when EIR talked about the development of the BRI going forward, underlining the perspective of it becoming the centerpiece of US-China relations, all the panelists got very excited, underlining how important they considered it, in spite of their somewhat diverse viewpoints.
The second session dealt with the foreign policy perspective as China looks forward to the upcoming 19th Party Congress in the fall. Professor Jia Qingguo, the head of the School of International Relations at Peking University, gave a sober estimate of the foreign policy perspective. Since the founding of the PRC, he said, there have been two periods in China's policy. Between 1949 and 1970, it went from competition to integration. Prior to the 1970s China tried to destroy the Western-based world order, which it considered unjust. After the PRC received UN membership and after the Nixon visit to China, China decided to integrate into the world system and shape it to its benefit. As the 21st century developed, it began to establish itself as an active player in that system.
“With China's rise as a major power it also developed global interests,” Jia said. “And yet China today is not the China of the past, but not yet quite the China of the future,” he said. “China is a rich country and a poor country at the same time, a confident country and a wary country at the same time.” “Everyone wants to know what China wants,” he said, “but China doesn't know itself what it wants. Therefore, its foreign policy is sometimes incoherent and inconsistent.” He continued, “Recent experience shows China becoming more proactive. It has stepped up its efforts to contribute to the international order. And Chinese leaders have been assessing the situation,” Jia said.
Professor Jia noted that China's recent attempts to cool down the problems in the South China Sea and to underline the importance of the BRI were attempts to stabilize the world international order.
“China will make greater efforts to promote US-China relations. This reflects the need for a stable environment before the Party Congress,” he said. After the Congress, he said, “China will become more active than passive. They will work to preserve the world order and their policy will become more consistent and coherent. They will work for more security cooperation and better relations with the U.S.” “China will not strive to become a global leader,” Jia said, “but it will exert leadership in those particular areas where it feels more at home.”
congratulations on placing your 600th painted piano and year round support in ny's poorest hospitals and community centers - a long and winding riad since 9/11 first inspired monica to netwirk this

i want to discuss whether we can despatch a painted piano to 4 places pivotal to china's 80 nations belt and road partnerships - so that ultimately we can plant  in every hemeisphere with chiense and franciscan as well as english speaking support- in these times when we dont know what gulf trump may create next,  youth artists sans frontieres are the most urgent antidote

1 vatican:: maurice international youth ambassador at vatican university can explain what we can do if we have one singforhope piano over there

2 buenos aires :: they are hosting the last great franciscan leaders summits of the 2010s - g20 argentina in july - so this is the student  class year to converge every solution influenced by eg paulo freire as originally monica's father muhamad yunus was

3 tokyo- because the 2020 olympics is intended to be the greatest bottom-up community stars celebration ever- - i know various people from tokyo working on that since my dad's only major recognition was from japans' emperor and jack ma is taking over sponsorship of the olympics so that it becomes everything it could never be under coke-

4 shanghai or hangzhou or beijing - ultimately this would depend where  we could find a wealthiest chiense sponsor from the 30 leaders club jack ma chairs wanting to bring back the arts to every youth community

i guess we also have a friend who would ;place a ;piano in windsor castle if you would like that too

i ask for the specific dates as that is why our chinese  girl  uber storyteller amy starts her postgraduate course at columbia with the likes of jeffrey sachs;;  and my friend camilo who structures walls street main latin america funds for ending poverty may have time to meet on the same day
