|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?

I want to summarise a few named links in case digital browsable details help
regarding China's Tsinghua as benchmark public servant university of SDG generation and girls:one person attended qatar nov namely
Professor Weihe Xie
Director of the Institute of Education
I should say that the route of chinese female graduates inspired by the honor to attend sir fazles 80th birthday through tsinghua has a different starting place so i dont immediately know best way to contact prof xie
yuxuan (now rhodes scholar oxford both a tsinghua graduate and intern with Stavros) and amy (now columbia uni new york) started with ying lowrey in Tsinghua - this extraordinary lady gets her students to write up the exploits of jack ma; scouts for alibaba at aliresearch.com; started working life as one of china's barefoot doctors; spent about 20 years in usa on small enterprises and regards her chief mentor in usa as the nobel economist at columbia edmund phelps "mass flourishing";
through ying we also know how to connect with the chinese organisers of wise@beijing and because of going to chinese debates in washington dc i know the main amerina biographer cheng Li of jinpings diary and of china's top 50 thinktanks; cheng leads china research at brookings DC and their instituite at tsinghua is headed by the former head on china's main green thinktank
I am reasonably confident that if requests are made to amy or yuxuan they can multiply fast through above contacts and many of the exciting ones at wise that i left you a printed sample of but full china delegate listing at wise qtara is here ; nest week in new york i am due to swap notes with an india equivalent of me who has spent 3 months following up wise with a survey of india's main education foundations - he will be in new york next week to brief amy and me and mostofa by skype
when we look at connections the UN already has with wise the main starting point is here -of course i dont understand why sir fazle abed is not on this global sdg council but here you will see sheikha,moza, jack ma, the president of Ghana who co-chairs UN eminents as well as running wise accra in may, and erna solberg who co-chairs both UN eminents and education commission with gordon brown- it is the education commission that has accepted that half of all youth will be unemployable unless we take education beyond the classroom -of course brac adolesecent girls clubs offer one massive beyond classroom paradigm especially if they can marry into technology hubs; in china this year all supercities are designing hubs to match an expected 5 million startups ! my experience is that as soon as you go out of tsinghua main gate you find yourself in the entrepreneur suburb of being a square mile of hub connections one needs a tsinghua travel guide to explore with- when jack ma is in beijing he chairs chinas top 50 entrepreneur club out of this suburb
AFRICA WISE TIMELY YEAR
in the earlier mp3 world, africa of around 2005 also started the best youth tech hub movement ihub in kenya about the same time as mpesa began there; since the quadir brothers who lead Bkash headhunted mpesa"s main designer nick hughes to connect with their reserach hubs at MIT and Legatum Dubai, they can map tech kenya better than I _however with BRICS hosted out of s.africa in september and zuma gone mostofa and my 10 year friendship with taddy blecher founder of the free university in south africa can be timely - some sample videos of taddy and amy are at http://myeconomics.ning.com
my guess is that as jack ma will continue to be epicentre of edutech - changes the world of participation of youth in communities at tokyo olympics and already investing over 15 billion dollars in the damo academy for humanising artificial intelligence and blockchaining social services
- while xi jinping host meeting to linkin the 100 most trusted national bankers of girls sustainability beyond borders; I know the auditor of asian infrastrucuire investment bank as well as Brits in Beijing and LSE who connect this annual summit with priority on aiiib mumbai june 2018 - fortunately the same un eminent council strongly represented by educatoirs is also being expert surveyed in time for major reports at aiib june 2018 and franscican g20 argentina july 2018
some of the above detail explain why i recommend youth to study connecting sir fazle, jinping guterres, pope francis, and jack ma this year before any other futures jobsstudy; i will try and add more GirlSilkRoad connections to that in a blog by this weekend
shanghai and the maps of mr fu at hujiang offer another space for girls4 sustainability to rapidly explore- fortunately the new development banking analysis os done out of shanghai ...
thank you chris macrae
