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?

where did 17 years of hi-trust auditing and american societal lawers networks go?
margaret this looks wonderfuil event- so sorry i am in oman this week otherwise i would love to attend

i desperately want to catch up on whether valuation big corporates can ever help youth lead trust and sustainability instead of the opposite

do you come to dc or new york regularly, or can i arrange a meeting at vanderbilt


my provisional answer to the question is american global corporates (with all the un and wall street greenwashing) wont lead mediation of youth to sustainability but those partnering china (possibly even the accidental china hi-society tourist donald trump family) can - china is in the middle of about 5 movements connecting youth (their half billion under 30) with the future of global2.0 - the most famous of which -wonderfully recorded in huge leadership detail by cheng li at brookings-
 his publications provide back-from future details (eg china's 7 leaders for next 5 years just confoimred at 19th cpc)  xi jinpings BELT ROAD movement to unite nation brands and country leaders with 21st C world trade infrastructure that included small enterprises as those whose locations were excluded from both development and sustainability by industrial revolution 1; the partnership networks xi jinping forms are all about hi-trust and intangibles audits, and whether any economists eg edmund phelps mass thriving at columbia are congruent with belt road mapping uniting youth and sustainability everywhere; the biggest 4 hemisphere trust meet of the next 12 months is the franciscan g20 july 2018 with Argentina hosting; however aiib india may be biggest uniting futures of the third of the world living in India or China

My view of Brookings is colored by when Bill Antholis led it. I kept attending events asking what had happened to unseen wealth networks, and only the chiense events that Bill organised seemed interested and then in specific markets such as green technolgy; during Antholis time at brookings (with his publication inside china and india) their partnership at tsinghua was set up and the head of beijing green thinktank was appointed to lead brookings- back in dc its bob freling and neville wiliams networks that have shared microsolar knowhow everywhere including yunus bangladesh 1996 and before that rural china; back in lse lord stern connects green and china's aims to change development banking for sustainability; his research on the 15 most emninent people to help with this will be published at chinas main leadership event in 2018 including asian infrastrure development bank mumbia june 2018- if indian and chinese leaders understood unseen wealth that would be world changing! there is a hope that there will be enough indian and chinese blockchain to end poverty connectors to change big finance and big data eveything - ckgsb's professor huining cao bridges that as well as henry kissingers advice to friend china in every application network of human sustainability and win-win trade

margaret do you have one person you know at tsinghua- after 8 trips to beijing i can report that tsinghua is the gateway to all the chinese youth on missions of the chiense dream

both ian who has been researching whether global brands can do good with media with my world class brands valuation friends over 25 years and amy as young chinese translator of every story her generation are committed to connecting are helping with the practical side of what we discussed when you published unseen wealth with brookings in 2000

amy has just started at columbia university at jeffreys sachs earth institute - unfortunatlely of those famous western academics of sustainability i still havent found an english-speaking one who connects with leaders of intangibles valuation of trust's exponential impacts- you would think eg elkington of sustainabiliity and triple botom line (with his friend wef's schwab) would get it but over at least 15 years now my occasional chats to see if he will talk intangibles has led nowhere

dear margaret: unlike bush who tore up unseen wealth in 2001, i believe that there is a way wherever trump makes friends or enemies with a national leader's rejuventaion dreams (eg most of asean this week) to put unseen wealth back on the agenda with china's extraordinary facilitation processes and maps- ultimately jack ma is technology's big data small key to this as he proved when Xi Jinping entgrusted hangzhou to host China G20 in 2016

 this can change parterships across corporate brandig world and the  purpose of global2.0 markets the half the world under 30 spend thri lives on

Subject: You're Invited - The Relationship Between Corporations and American Democracy

Join us Nov. 15 for a discussion of the role of corporations in American democracy.
Brookings Event Invitation                                  

The relationship between corporations and American democracy

Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W. Washington, DC 20036
RSVP to attend in person
The Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission has provoked passionate debate about the proper role of corporations in American democracy among academics, policymakers, and the public alike. From judicial opinions to news commentary, many have opined on the nature of corporate rights and responsibilities. However, many people have made assertions about the history of the corporation in the United States that are outdated at best, and all too often lack scholarly foundation. The historical background missing from these debates is outlined in a recent book by fourteen leading historians. “Corporations and American Democracy” (Harvard University Press, 2017) explores the complicated story of the corporation’s place in American society from the founding era to the present and traces how corporations have both created and addressed the problems of democracy over time.

On Wednesday, November 15, Brookings will convene several of the book’s editors and contributors for a conversation about the relationship between corporations and American democracy. What is the corporation’s place in American society? What are the risks and opportunities corporations pose to democracy?

After the session, panelists will take audience questions. Join the conversation on Twitter using #CorpsInUs.
