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?

GREEN BIG BANG GOVERNORS CLUB
As i mentioned one of my (friends) curent projects is to catalogue green service small enterprises that may be of interested to green big bang club - which aims to unite over 1000 governors of places with under 1 million people who want to share solutions on how to go carbon zero by 2030 - this was announced by the korean governor who hosted china's 2nd annual board of governors meeting of www.aiib.org the asian infsastructure bank that emerged as one of the expert networks xi jinping has formed - in this case withy 80 member countries
if you feel able to write a shirt note on your company services with bookmark or contact point that you are happy for me to share that would be great
could i introduce amy she's be connecting chinese and english speaking student networks for loger than anyone i know- while her research and mine overlap she's often way ahead as i cant search chinese- the second time she came over to the states coincided with un launch of sustainability goals in 2015 - therefore she has been able to track both american and chiense connectiosn of these from the outset
in my view china is leading where the world needs to go because its leaders know that most of its half a billion under 30s need jobs connected with sustainability and the sorts of thing jack ma talks about - but better than that almost all young cheinse livelihoods will be win-win with global youth sustainability solutions
if you have any ideas on connections or knowledge we can help each other build please discuss with amy or me any time
Yinyin - regarding countries publishing their climate goals - i am still looking for one best source but some examples are here France Submits Long-Term National Climate Plan to UNFCCC the fact that nations are publishing what they are prepared to do on climate was one of the major discussions between the 80 nations bankers who attended the AIIB . I exchanged business cards with the shanghai corporate accountant who publishes the annual report for aiib and made quite a lot of good connections. I will report back if they elad somewhere practical
i would love to be be sent any news on ma's hupan university in hangzhou - here is some brief notes i made so far
Hupan University was started in Hangzhou by Jack Ma with other leading entrepreneurs including Shanghai's founder of Fosun.
http://english.cri.cn/12394/2015/03/25/4021s871579.htm since launching this university, Jack has become chair of China Entrepreneur Club, hosted the first 1000 person philanthropy summit at ali baba campus, Hangzhou hosted China's G20 andSME collaboration the EWTP Electronic World Trade Platform for small enterprises
Amy's home city Changsha is where china's leading green building entrepreneur lives Zhang Yue- one of sustainability's top 10 job creators
Because of trump's withdrawal from climate the good news is that bloomberg is assembling a list of place governors who will commit to climate - i will be trying to get friends to ratify whether detrtoit's governor is one of these as well as seeing if a leading green governor will approach jack ma to stage gateway2018 - of course anyone who with better ideas on how to do this -please just do it
health networks are one of the areas i do a lot of research on -please say if you would like a mail on that
