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?

12 years of research of sir fazle abed (and yunus) in bangladesh and 10 years of research of jack ma which became 5 years of research of eg xi jinping shows that old western/g7 people do not yet have a sustainable clue for these sustainability-critical markets let alone others
clean energy distribution
i will try to write up this in a smoother way at economistafrica.com by end of weekend
for now it matters a lot if young chinese ladies could sign sir fazle abed brac.tv - a guide to collaboration's best for the world organisations birthday card - you can do this with mostofa
here's very rough story on western cluelessness - by the way if you have never read 1999's essy on cluelessness you can find it at The Cluetrain Manifesto (anyine here know hero of open doc searls0
STORY OF NEXT 1000 DAYS
Do you agree we have a problem: nations don’t yet have a clue about sustanaible models/purposes of markets of 1 health 2 banking 3 education 4 energy distribution ...
Ok there are a few clues but they are not even being linked in because of rotten media and western politicians who prefer to fight each other than build things for their peoples
Clue 1 in some small wealthy countries – probably nordica, singapore, new Zealand the clue is love your professionals so much that first they act on a Hippocratic oath, second every subprofessional decides they value serving their peoples more than just becoming individually rich
Clue 2 tech can – each of edutech, fintech, healthtech and energytech could map back a future (that’s exponentially sustainable instead of still about to crash) valuing 1000 times more connected tech than 1946… but the problem is simply illustrated by fintech- while the solution could be blockchain , its also potentially a trap of speculators bit coins instead of credit for the future big data small needs to give every community the capacity to be secure so that children can flousish growing up there
Clue 3 not only does each market need a purpose beyond making money- each market must-needs be an open systems gamechanger the other markets need – so for example education would also need to unlearn eg all sciences that still value too much carbon and let young people peer to peer mooc missing curriculum – the last reward structure likely to innovate the education needed is one where every teacher is guaranteed lifelong pensions for not changing the system
Clue 4 ironically America has two future in 1000 days time (start of 2021) – either no other country will want to partner it on innovating any of the above 4 markets, or whomever leads next wont just say trump got the wrong end of the stick – they will say he was a mover and shaker that showed that no politician since the birth of the worldwide web has helped the peoples see how to sustain communities all across america
clue 5 valuing girls in economic models can - if you find a western economic guru who says girls are already included in western economic models i am sorry to say this but he is at best delusional, and worst hired by speculatirs to big broither this world
(the 1000days.world good news for worldwide youth is mentally emigrate from usa now- connect your regions belt road winwiin trade maps and future sustainability goals of tehse 4 markets collaboratively with the world's 100 most trusted leaders - president xi and antonio guterres are jointly seraching whose this first 100 elders of sustainability are - and regarding youth-led education wise can search what belt road alone cant it we get youth embedded in wise@UNGA ny sept 2018 - more clues on that economistdiary.com 43weeks.com
