Main reason for optimism is leapfrogging - thats when a society/place that was excluded from industrial age networks leapfrogs an old system to a new one thanks to 1000 times more COMstech than 1946; about a third of the world never had wired telephone lines, now almost all have mobile (text version); more than a quarter of the world never had electricity grids, now microsolar is linking in;.

|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?

THE NEW UNITED NATIONS OF GIRLS AND YOUTH
I dont have any inside tracks on (below) the latest global youth invitation from alibaba following on 48 hours ago from announcement that detroit will host alibabas first summit on helping one million us small enterprises in june-
https://www.forbes.com/sites/.../04/.../gateway-17-the-road-to-china-is-through-detroit...2 days ago - China is a challenge for many U.S. businesses. They want the opportunity to sell into this massive and fast-growing market, but they lack China ...
-- but i do urgently wonder if we can learn from these most extraordinary place collaborations for youth entreprises (see also unctad geneva's eccomerce week just ending)
Trade and Development week dedicated to electronic commerce will take place. ... and several fora are discussing ecommerce-related issues, including UNCTAD, ...
================ series of ali baba 3 million dollar youth entrepreneur pitches out of hong kong - newest pitch series announcement below
- for example last years challenge appears to have co-created
--eg Cyberport is a a 900-strong community of digital entities in Hong Kong. The management company is wholly owned by the Hong Kong government. The mission is to develop the digital technology sector into a key economic driver for Hong Kong.
IF HK can do this why not any collaboration supercity
- how could we linking in american and global youth for development out of baltimore find out if there is a way to partner cyberport if the idea of launching a cluster of 20 smarthome labs in baltimore accelerates as a way of being a crossroads for all tech for urgent inner city apps
i met king today and will meet rev al and king on tuesday afternoon at UBC in baltimore before prayers to update on last weeks visit to beijing and next 3 summits: beijing, kissingers c100 DC, and AliBaba gateway Detroit
i strongly recommend making one minute video pitches on what could be linkedin out of a space of 20 labs - baltimore (as the east coast's new silicon valley - see also alex ross book) have the chance to distribute this videos via rachel including various student networks (eg peking university) which other delegations (especially franciscan values ones with high level leaders ambassadors eg romano prodi) representing place partnerships have made into an ecosystem of place partnerships-
REALITY OF THE UNITED NATIONS OF GIRLS & YOUTH
let me be clear even though the chinese are too polite to put it like this- the chinese believe there is a far more active way to involve youth in jobs and sustainability futures than relying on the UN in new york; instead they are uniting year round youth entrepreneur competitions and landing them in front of national leaders such as the g20- for those most concerned with improving youth opportunities in Industrial Revolution 4's disadvantaged youth cities and villages (particularly girls)
argentina g20 summer 2018 is the meta-market-
NB it was chairman mao himself who changed 1.3 billion people's valuation of girls livelihoods by promoting the ideology "women hold up half the sky" - we are but one student class year to unite incubation of tech projects that particularly advance girls or youth social justice- many of the timelines of this are already being drawn- jim kim will be in beijing may and xi jinping's biggest (BELT FORUM) summit May 14 connecting places -while its about investment pitched for place infrastructures, people like jack ma make it absolutely linked in to every opportunity youth and transformed education can advance if you are one of the places that china sees is actively collaborating by for and with the sustainability generation -of course the stakes for those of us who are in place close enough to influence all the decisions america capital makes over the next 1361 days have a window of opportunity whose consequence for american youth may never come again -certainly not in my lifetime
intelligence needed to begin to understand this opportunity would not have happened without amy and qian
