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?

Dear Ab
Wonderful that you are moderating more girls/youth movement at un on 16 august
Are there some bookmarks etc or other any way that amy and i can catch up on your work since you and i met at the un wikipedia event that stephanie first told me to attend

john kiehl knows all of you particularly amy- he shuttles between his alma mater mit and ny - owning music studios in both towns

if i recall correctly you grew up in indian villages - started journalising womens health were spotted by india and then mit media labs- are researching everything exciting for womens empowerment out of boston

in 2007 my father last youth journalism project sent about 20 young people to study muhammad yunus in bangladesh - this transferred to any womens empowerment village model we could find for a journal we tried to launch with adam smith scholars out of glasgow

in the process it became clear to me that only china will invites leaders and students  change the word of bottom up women empowerment with the technolgy and green goals in time

amy became the chinese student who has connected most news of china though now she wants to specialise out of columbia university for 2 years while i continue to develop beijing connections

it would be great if you and amy could meet or skype

regarding india versus china friendships (or war) i am aware of 3 urgent timelines
1 aiib 2018 - last month i attended aiib in korea - mumbai host 80 nations discussing banking next june - by then there will be lot more projects and first year of green big bang club

i know the top 2 brits connected with all of this network and accidentally have business card of the shanghai part of PWC that audits aiib

then in 2019 india host the g20 after argentina in 2018

amy has good relations with a guy in bangalore charged with finding all the coding wizards who may help connect ethiopia as epicentre of satellite learning- both of us also know a lady who  owns a conferenec centre in the nearest town to - amma has huge partnerships with UN on all nanotechnolgy academics

Ultimately it would be jolly good in my view if we could reduce degrees of separation around many of these influential people so that youth like you and amy could make most use of them -maybe kiehl or stephanie or others will have ideas; last time amy was up in boston fady showed her round; i first met him when were judging part of the mit100k- for many years he ran one of the students events newsletters while advancing his own deep knowhow in robotics

ed resor first knew the people who run the legatum lab at mit around 1996 when they started grameen phone with yunus; after rows with yunus they regrouped around sir fazle abed and built the biggest cashless bank with text mobile  - amy and mostofa try to understand what sir fazle would want next - things between china belt road to bangladesh, india and pakistan are now in absolutely critical stages = how can all 3 win with china is the only sensible question for an outsider like me to ask

naila and tania are huge advocates/connectors of girl empowerment out of bangladesh and i expect they know whether there are any possible ways to reconnect girls empowerment across all 3 countries; last night cgtn made one point extremely simple; the future of fashion sectors will turn on which nations have megaports because traders in megaports settle in each others countries and thats where trade moves in something as fast as fashions - there is now no way of stopping pakistan become huge supplier of garments - so this sector has suddenly become the one that may determine whether the whole subcontinent gets back together or remains accidentally petitioned- since my grandfather sir kenneth kemp wrote up the legalese of india's independence i would like to see mistakes of british empires boundaries finally resolved 

i understand there are some big conflicts all across the region though the basic solution of mobile leapfroging seems to me to work wherever girls are wholly empowered - i did attend a ford foundation event in mayon goal 11 where  unhabitat actually presented that girls voices on safety of a place were the key metric to all sustainability goals

there were several un people there who promised to come back to a 15 minute q&a conversation i started with them - if anyone wants the transcript of that i will try and make it

cheers chris
it turns out that by mapping where doyouth friendships link anything china is helping 80 national leaders redevelop one can go beyond the usual pr sponsors and find the true action projects help map 21st "friends" guide to #learninggeneration
