|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?

TITLE:Benchmarking leaders of sustainability generation’s ground-up economies
ABSTRACT IN UNDER 300 words
My father, Norman Macrae, was The Economist's end-poverty Keynsian, and from 1972 his signature curriculum Entrepreneurial Revolution asked whether sustainability of the net generation would depend on maximising bottom-up market models and celebrating 4 hemisphere cultural harmony. Alarmed by the systemic follies of sub-prime, my father's last project funded over a dozen student journalists (European, American, African and Chinese) from 2007 to go and explore how Bangladesh had empowered village women: to design what Bill Clinton in his book Giving was calling a new hi-trust model for a developing nation.
Father died in June 2010 two weeks before Glasgow University Adam Smith scholars and Muhammad Yunus celebrated the launch of the Journal of Social Business. Would Adam Smith have celebrated the Franciscan Preferential Option Poor modeling around which Bangladesh 's development of rural villages’ value exchanges have been systemized? Various remembrance parties to my father including at The Economist’s boardroom have given under 30s opportunities to feed forward the stories of girls empowerment and mobile leapfrogging that have moved them most.
Bangladesh's Sir Fazle Abed is one of three benchmark leaders of bottom-up livelihood economies which this paper presents after a decade of linking in student journalism search for bottom up transformations of economics and links to missing practice curricula if sustainability goals are to be the signature achievement of the net generation. Our other two benchmarks are Jack Ma and Xi Jinping who have been joyfully designing Capitalism with Chinese Characteristics (see eg documentation of the Hangzhou Consensus at China ’s G20 and the call for 11 regions of the world to share their Belt Road mapping of projects and investment partnerships in world trade routes for sustainability).
Jack is a centre of gravity for digital economic empowerment and valuing SME. We hypothesise that if nations are to be united round sustainability exponentials by 2030, we now need a global mediation focus even more intense than racing to the moon in the 1960s. Xi Jinping, seconded by UN head Antonio Guterres, appears to be the epicentre of a media revolution inviting such a celebration connecting China's dream of its own rejuvenation with youth's livelihood needs to rejuvenate value exchanges of global2.0 using Big Data Small mapping. The new triangularisation integrates urgent drivers of local to global innovations driven by infrastructure, digital and green investment funding and freeing sustainable purposes of market sectors.
