|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?

if both of you have time before your next college year why not visit WISES' stavros together in qatar- everything wise ever connected is at risk do this is the time he most needs youth help
both of you are beyond the age of just studying - to have impact matching your extraordinary lives to date you must connect with those leaders you trust at times where opening hapen
this seems such an obvious opportunity as was connecting china and sir fazle abed
I dont have a lot of money but would try to cover your travel costs
i am sure that between the 3 of us stavros will want this - todays news is saudi and others are demanding qatar shut down al jazeera - this is ridiculous it was one of the ways the whole world could discuss the region - admittedly i only know the english language part of it but its pretty clear that qatar is 10 times moire entrepreneurial on communications and education than others in the region and is being beaten up for trying so hard
of course people like professor ying are far wiser than me if there is anything wrong with above ideas then i am here to learn from you all- equally 3000 american youth just learnt from jack ma at Gateway '17 earlier this week - its about the only sane aluni group of youth in america at the moment for some unaccountable reason c100 did not attend so i now realise Yma100 in each country needs to be built by students who love 2 or more countries not even by such eminent elders as chinese americans c100
please note other huge opportunities now:
jeju wants to build a college education system uniting 2500 places of half a million people racing to be carbon neutral by 2030- this has become a key friendship project between south korea and china and is supported by all the top people at the asian infrastructure investment bank - fortunately there are 2 brits at top of management there (this is one of few opportunities left fro brexit britain), one of who my family knows well as senior guru at LSE after 10 years of trying to serve gordon browns green research- he was operating uk-india main thinktank for a while so its great that he is now main person in london connecting uk-china - so i would recommend being proactive- wrote a letter to aiib and explain why you are going to your chosen college and ask if there is any survey you can start out of that college relevant top students linking in aiib and one belt -this is the future of youth investment banking if china rejuvenation is ever to happen the way xi jinping hopes
take care yuxuan and amy - i am sorry to be so demanding ---if you two are not in middle of lifting up half the sky --- which women of your age ever will?
