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
