Even as the 1960s moon race inspired the world, we need to understand how unequal the opporttunity to innovate had been - even in the 1960s as many as half the world's people had no access to electricity grids so they got their news of the moon race by word of mouth.

Consider 1000-1500- until the last few years of this period , the known world was Europe-Asia and NE Africa; #BR8 the med sea was the main world trade waterway; places facing this sea increasingly developed win-win trades; moreover #BR7 the west asian border to med sea was the start of an amazing overland relay of traders which stretched all the way to china (the silk road was the greatest overland world trade route ever and to sustain its interfacing markets required positive cross-cultural bridging all along its route. Silks and spices from the Chinese end acted like a positive currency- there was much demand for them whose value naturally went up the further they were merchanted back to Europe. Everyone gained for this trading route- you can read marco polo's diaries- perhaps nowhere invested more in artistic celebrations of being a major hub of positive trade than his hometown venice in europe and the town he was asked to govern for 2 years in china Hangzhou which marco described as the great town of markets in the world.)

What happened towards 1500 that 2 long shipping routes were discovered by north europeans- the new world of the ameriucas to the west (#BR6 N, #BR10 what we now call Latin America), and a way of reaching the @BR2 South Asian coastal Belt (starting with the indian subcontinent) by sailing around africa. A ship captain couldnt affird such a long return voyage unless he goit what trade he wanted- soon this big ships were equipped with gun power and crews were pressganged or even enslaved. Next in the process was colonising. So it was that nations became big by pludering economies of other peoples places. Back in 1500 places economic size was corelated with population. Soon Britain grew at the expense particularly of the Indian subcontiuent. Mainly Britain and France colonised Africa too, Spain andPotrtugal colonised Latin America. North America was settled by a mixyure of Europeans whose declaration of Indendence in 1776 ended any attempt by Britain to colonise America, But we should note that the USA was built on a sort of internal colonisation - natives had theor places taken over and slaves were used to do most of the hard labour. In effect the old war's colonial ways casued the 2 world wars of the fkirst half of the 20th C. From 1946 most of the world's countries regained their independence but starting from (mainly undeveloped states - poverty that the colonia era had gtraped them in).

Ironically whule the UDA came to tghe resuce of the old workld and from 1946 helped relaunch the two biggest losers of world war 2 Germsny and Japan, american (not withstandiong thair family trees origins) had previously had little modern of knowledge of Eurasia but were pulled into peacekeeping and the cold war with russia through the sceond half of the 20th C. Whilst there was some understanding of the extraoerdinary progress japanese enginers made with electornics, civil and other enginnering, the rise and rise of the east and the often difficult bodrers that had been caused by British and Jpoanese colonisation of the region are not deeply studied by most Americans or their media. It should be the best news the world has ever seen that the fifth of the world in chjna tghat closed itself to the world for more than a centiry after Brfits has offered opium as a gtrading currency in 1860 is now as entrepreneurial as anywhere. With over half of tghe world's ;people facikng either the sout asia or east asia coastal belts, the opportunity the east is cfreating to win0pwin gtrade oin line with moore's ever increasing technology should make sustainable youth worlwdie the gfreatesty positive curency-invetsment the human race has ever mapped. But this is not how USA or the block of coungtriues ruled by the Euro have marketed transapfrently. Instead we are caught in the Keynsian crisis of economist not valuing the hippocratic oathes he had published as tghe final chapter of the ngeneral throy of employment money and interest. The 2020s are likely to make the system designs our tech spreads irreversible- will the end game be big brother extinction or little sister sustainability?

Statesecretary at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, Matthias Machnig, launched today the digital conference entitled “Key Issues for Digital Transformation in the G20” which is jointly being hosted by the German G20 presidency and the OECD. The conference will kick off the G20 digital ministers’ process launched by Federal Minister Gabriel, which will culminate in a meeting of G20 digital ministers in Düsseldorf on 6-7 April.
Gabriela Ramos, G20-Sherpa and Chief of Staff of the OECD, presented the key findings of the "Key Issues for Digital Transformation in the G20" report prepared by the OECD on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. She stressed the need for policies that bolster fair competition, trust and confidence in the digital economy and widely ensure access to the technologies as well as the know-how to use them. These issues will be key themes for a 2-year, OECD-wide project – "Going Digital: Making the Transformation Work for Growth and Well-being" – which was also launched at the conference.
On the occasion of the conference Minister Gabriel underlined: “We must seize the opportunities that digital technologies offer for sustainable economic growth. The G20 is the right forum to set the international stage for this to happen so that everyone can reap the fruits from the digital progress. Digitisation has to take everyone on board and benefit all. We therefore need to see digitisation as an opportunity and establish the right ecosystem for it. The crucial factors in this regard are access to high-performance infrastructure for all, digital education, international harmonisation of standards, especially in areas that are important for our globally interlinked production industries, and the creation of transparency and trust in the digital world.”
“In a context of stubbornly slow global growth, the digital transformation of our economies and society holds huge promise for innovation, productivity and growth, as well as prosperity and wellbeing. We look forward to working with the G20 to help countries, workers and citizens position themselves to seize the benefits of this pivotal shift, while also finding ways to manage any disruption to markets, jobs and skills. The digitalisation of our economies and societies needs to be a truly inclusive process. Given the speed and breadth of the transformation underway, and its ramifications for the global economy, I congratulate the German Presidency for highlighting it as a key G20 issue”, said OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría on the occasion of the conference.
On the basis of the report, some 300 participants from the G20 countries will develop and discuss policy recommendations and measures with a view to ensuring that all people benefit from the opportunities held by digitisation. High-level representatives from other G20 governments, international organisations, companies, associations, academia and civil society will participate in the event.
Following the public conference, the first meeting of the new G20 “Digital Economy” task force will be held on 13 January. The aim is to adopt common principles and policies and a work program for the G20 group at the meeting of the digital ministers in Düsseldorf on 6-7 April.
