Sir Fazle Abed -top 70 alumni networks & 5 scots curious about hi-trust hi-tech

history of worldwide transformation of economics typologies

smithian/scottish economists make some simplifications in trying to map how 7.5 billion humans got to 2020 only to discover their greatest collaboration challenge yet - homo sapiens versus what gordon browbn calls a virus that inflitrates the air we breathe by being one thousandth the size of a pinch of salt (an example of einstein's prophetic findibng- man's is contrianed by approximating measurements at system levels that are far more macro than the most micro ones nature integrates- when sithians meetat glasgow cop26 260 years afrere glagow ubinvented the engine, it would be wise to frame climatechallenges around every valuation dynamic human intel hasnot yet mapped as deeplyas nature - see also references to deep learning/#aifirggod

to smithian alumni :the 2 most transformational knowhow-operational system changes in the first 1945 years of the christian calendar

around 1500 - discovery world was round and could be navigated -operationally led by italians including those who hired themselves out to portugal, spain and the uk

1760 the discovery of (steam) engines started up at glasgow university around 2 men first engineer james watt, and adam smith first correspondent of two kinds of market systems- ones sustaining community trust, ones proagating world trade in the macine (industrial era)

we seek to differentiate 4 exciting economic models as well as question whether 2020s will be just-in-ytime for sustainability generation's fifth one - some call this society5.0 leaping beyond 4 industrial revolutions - intriguingly for every community on earth to be a thriving poace to be born we need to revisit smith's moral sentiments- his deeply human intel definition of transparent community economies prior to the machine age


rural keynsianism -eg billion people saved from starvation with borlaug's green revolution - in terms of number of lives developed this is the biggest model but it includes work not counted by monetary economis eg patenting children and prepping earth to be as diverse for next generations as it was for yours- in many historical village cultures almost all of this unpaid work was deemed as womens work

east asia rising roadster economy first gravitated by japan but soon win-win connecting with chinese diaspora- networking win-wins of new and better quality engines, bullet trains and container shipping evolving small-middle enterprise tech networks down the coast - south korea and taiwan; hong kong and singapore

the pound economy through which britannia's less than 1% of humans living on one island - actually mainly the capital london-  first using machines and big ships once extracted up to 15% of world trade and were the first global reserve currency

the dollar economy- which evolved when what became 5% of the world's people -eg english, scottist, irish, french, dutch, geman - emigrated to north america; ended colonisation by britannia; started applying engines on a continental scale - ie to be 10% of earth's resources instead of the 0.01% of britain's land

while they interact they have different purposes to 2020- the language, in bold font, for all these models was diarised inter alia in the economist-

key references include 1943' centenary autobiography of the economist, a 1960 series consider japan, and a post moon race series includin 1877 on rural keynesianism and 1976 where entrepreneurial revolution argued that sme value startup chains posed 2 systemic challenges to economist:

1 ending poverty

2 going beyond the west 3 biggest legal constitution - the corporate, the national government, and other which in the world of developing economies had include billionnaire's foundations and from 1945 new forms of transnational - example 1 being the united nations birthed at end of world war 2 by a meeting of nations at san francisco opera house

in 1945 2 things seemed to be agreed by most nationsecept stalin's russia; the first 185 years of machines had become the root cause of the world wars- could 2 things be achieved- rebooting the largest empire economies, freeing independent nation economies as part of the reconciliation of all the errors caused by slavery, colonising and generally not designing lives matter economies (smith's greatest but los innovation had been the idea of celebrating lives matter wherever mavhines opened thriving society) 

which was started by james wilso- a smithian as a newsletter stimulating transfornatyive debates in london's royal society of 1843- over the next 16 years wilso raised a debate which reached the mind of queen victoria-would she rather preside over a coonwealth empire rather that one driven by slavemaking and land owne monoplists starving neighbors like ireland-smith was only partly successful in both debates- he did influence enough of londons great and good to end the corn laws; in 1899 quen victoria gave him the permission "charter bank" to sail to calcutta to start reforming the colonial system then operated by one of the most vicious corporations east indies company

the least known but biggest in terms of child/human development we call rural keysianism- schumacher an alumni of keynes is known for 2 systemic patter rules

small is beautiful which also echoes einstein maths

the worlds biggest post-war challenge - ending poverty is mainly a challenge of human development in millions of villages

for our purposes we define villages as continetal inland places with no access to electricity grids- (this usually means no moder infrastrucure and no communications other than word of mnouth and if villagers are literate :printed communcation)

athough all rising asian economies have used at least one of rural keynsianism and roadster economies - both need to be connected if a nation is both to end poverty and to see all next generations lives improve which is differentnt that the middle income trap in which the richest always take more and more

for reasons which go back to geo-history- bangladesh became the purest lab for vilage womens emp0wewrmen by rural keynes but until 1996 no access to electricity grids nor telecoomunications

  - the nation had emerged in 1971 from double coloniation- by the brits to 1948 by '(west) pakistan- further more most of its neigbors were hostile- what we now call myanmar on its west- how india had been allocated the port of calcutta which the whole bay of bengal depended on during a century when it had been the most critical of the 3 ocean regions to british empire trade- exercise get out a map; pinpoit durban the vaval operation gateway of britain to all of asia- note 3 regions the seas and coasts to the west of the sea route duran to bomba, the route from burban to calcutta, what happens if you sail to singapore and start colonising the fear east coast of asia- the pound economy at its height administered all 3 of these world trade maps

fortunately for the world one of the most exciting stident journeys ever made was by the teenbage fazleabed inthe mid 1950s about 70 years after gandhi as teenage student. gandhi was from thenorth west coat of india with bombay his nearest port; he went to london to study law; he triangularised debates about thev20th century future of britian south africa and india

fazleabed went to glasgow unbiversity to study adam smith and shipping ebngineribng; then he studied accountancu and in less than 12 years rose inb the royal durch shell corporation to become the regional cewo od his homeland still called eat pakista. in 1970 abed was to be in the middle of the first of three million-death forces/: the mnost severe cuyclone; then came the war on idepenence; the the million bangladeshi famine. never had a revolutioary economic model been more urgently needed; and as it turned out the idea of abed to be the most collaborative partner in development solutions suited british dutch and japanese conscienes as the 3 empires that had most sprung colonial traps on asian women- and souther chinese villages who needed coomon knowhow soutiobns starting with oral rehydration, vaccibnations, ricxe science to end famine, village models of scalin businees beyond non-sustainabvle charity

if smith would have loved celebrating thegreat anerican ope source innovators - borlaug - crop science for billin vilagers food security and deming machines for new purposes, the tjhird great americanbinnovation that blossomed 1945-1960 connects with 12 extraordinay years of work by john von neumann i who died in 1957, neumannhad emigrated from budapest to princeton in 1931 joining elders like einstein. he was soon asigbed to fathering the nucklear bomb; after the war he wanted his life to cintribute to win-win economic games- he fathewred the programable computer - his immediate legacy- the moon race abnd to many more importantly the evolution of satellite telecoms, 2 artifucial intel labs facing the atlantic out of mit bostoj and the pacific out of stanford; 5 yearsafter theformation of the stanford lab- intel' and gordon moore gotthe largest known order for silicon chips from afapanese manufactrer of electrobic calculators; rather tha be behonden to one client intel innovated theproramable chip- and alumni of gordon more promised the most extreme innovation expoential ever heard of- 100 times more computing and communicating capability every decade to the2020s when 5 dollar chips would have latent switching capacity beyond anyhuman brain. the space on earth for investing in this extraordinary cmmtent was revranded siliconvalley.

KERRY GLASGOWIS HUMANITY'S LAST BEST CHANCE - Join search for Sustainaabilty's Curricula

Dear Robert - you kindly asked for a short email so that you could see if there is a CGTN anchor in east coast who might confidentially share views with my expectation of how only Asian young women cultural movements (parenting and community depth but amplified by transparent tech in life shaping markets eg health, food, nature..) can return sustainability to all of us
three of my father's main surveys in The Economist 1962-1977 explain imo where future history will take us (and so why younger half of world need friendship/sustainable adaptation with Chinese youth -both on mainland and diaspora)
 1962 consider japan approved by JF Kennedy: argued good news - 2 new economic models were emerging through japan korea south and taiwan relevant to all Asia Rising (nrxt to link the whole trading/supply chains of the far east coast down through hong kong and cross-seas at singapore)
1 rural keynsianism ie 100% productivity in village first of all food security- borlaug alumni ending starvation
2 supercity costal trade models which designed hi-tech borderless sme value chains- to build a 20 million person capital or an 8 million person superport you needed the same advances in engineering - partly why this second economic model was win-win for first time since engines begun Glasgow 1760 ; potentially able to leverage tech giant leaps 100 times ahead; the big opportunity von neumann had gifted us - knowhow action networking multiply value application unlike consuming up things
1976 entrepreneurial revolution -translated into italian by prodi - argued that future globalisation big politics big corporate would need to be triangularised by community scaled sme networks- this was both how innovation advancing human lot begins and also the only way to end poverty in the sense of 21st C being such that next girl born can thrive because every community taps in diversity/safety/ valuing child and health as conditions out of which intergenerational economic growth can spring
in 1977 fathers survey of china - argued that there was now great hope that china had found the system designs that would empower a billion people to escape from extreme poverty but ultimately education of the one child generation (its tech for human capabilities) would be pivotal ( parallel 1977 survey looked at the futures of half the world's people ie east of iran)
best chris macrae + 1 240 316 8157 washington DC
 - we are in midst of unprecedented exponential change (dad from 1960s called death of distance) the  tech legacy of von neumann (dad was his biographer due to luckily meeting him in his final years including neumann's scoping of brain science (ie ai and human i) research which he asked yale to continue in his last lecture series). Exponential risks of extinction track to  mainly western top-down errors at crossroads of tech  over last 60 years (as well as non transparent geonomic mapping of how to reconcile what mainly 10 white empires had monopoly done with machines 1760-1945 and embedded in finance - see eg keynes last chapter of general theory of money); so our 2020s destiny is conditioned by quite simple local time-stamped details but ones that have compounded so that root cause and consequence need exact opposite of academic silos- so I hope there are some simple mapping points we can agree sustainability and chinese anchors in particular are now urgently in the middle of
Both my father at the economist and I (eg co-authoring 1984 book 2025 report, retranslated to 1993 sweden's new vikings) have argued sustainability in early 21st c will depend mostly on how asians as 65% of humans advance and how von neumann (or moores law) 100 times more tech every decade from 1960s is valued by society and business.
My father (awarded Japan's Order of Rising Sun and one time scriptwriter for Prince Charles trips to Japan) had served as teen allied bomber command burma campaign - he therefore had google maps in his head 50 years ahead of most media people, and also believed the world needed peace (dad was only journalist at messina birth of EU ) ; from 1960 his Asian inclusion arguments were almost coincidental to Ezra Vogel who knew much more about Japan=China last 2000 years ( additionally  cultural consciousness of silk road's eastern dynamics not golden rule of Western Whites) and peter drucker's view of organisational systems
(none of the 10 people at the economist my father had mentored continued his work past 1993- 2 key friends died early; then the web turned against education-journalism when west coast ventures got taken over by advertising/commerce instead of permitting 2 webs - one hi-trust educational; the other blah blah. sell sell .sex sell. viral trivial and hate politicking)
although i had worked mainly in the far east eg with unilever because of family responsibilities I never got to china until i started bumping into chinese female graduates at un launch of sdgs in 2015- I got in 8 visits to beijing -guided by them around tsinghua, china centre of globalisation, a chinese elder Ying Lowrey who had worked on smes in usa for 25 years but was not jack ma's biographer in 2015 just as his fintech models (taobao not alibaba) were empowering villagers integration into supply chains; there was a fantastic global edutech conference dec 2016 in Tsinghua region (also 3 briefings by Romano Prodi to students) that I attended connected with  great womens education hero bangladesh's fazle abed;  Abed spent much of hs last decade hosting events with chinese and other asian ambassadors; unite university graduates around sdg projects the world needed in every community but which had first been massively demonstrated in asia - if you like a version of schwarzman scholars but inclusive of places linking all deepest sustainability goals challenges 
and i personally feel learnt a lot from 3 people broadcasting from cgtn you and the 2 ladies liu xin and  tian wei (they always seemed to do balanced interviews even in the middle of trump's hatred campaigns), through them I also became a fan of father and daughter Jin at AIIB ; i attended korea's annual general meet 2017 of aiib; it was fascinating watching bankers for 60 countries each coming up with excuses as to why they would not lead on infrastructure investments (even though the supercity economic model depends on that)
Being a diaspora scot and a mathematician borders (managers who maximise externalisation of risks) scare me; especially rise of nationalist ones ;   it is pretty clear historically that london trapped most of asia in colomisdation ; then bankrupted by world war 2 rushed to independence without the un or anyone helping redesign top-down systems ; this all crashed into bangladesh the first bottom up collaboration women lab ; ironically on health, food security, education bangladesh and chinese village women empowerment depended on sharing almost every village microfranchise between 1972 and 2000 especially on last mile health networking
in dads editing of 2025 from 1984 he had called for massive human awareness by 2001 of mans biggest risk being discrepancies in incomes and expectations of rich and poor nations; he suggested that eg public broadcast media could host a reality tv end poverty entrepreneur competition just as digital media was scaling to be as impactful as mass media
that didnt happen and pretty much every mess - reactions to 9/11, failure to do ai of epidemics as priority from 2005 instead of autonomous cars, failure to end long-term carbon investments, subprime has been rooted in the west not having either government nor big corporate systems necessary to collaboratively value Asian SDG innovations especially with 5g
I am not smart enough to understand how to thread all the politics now going on but in the event that any cgtn journalist wants to chat especially in dc where we could meet I do not see humans preventing extinction without maximising chinese youth (particularly womens dreams); due to covid we lost plans japan had to relaunch value of female athletes - so this and other ways japan and china and korea might have regained joint consciousness look as if they are being lost- in other words both cultural and education networks (not correctly valued by gdp news headlines) may still be our best chance at asian women empowerment saving us all from extinction but that needs off the record brainstorming as I have no idea what a cgtn journalist is free to cover now that trump has turned 75% of americans into seeing china as the enemy instead of looking at what asian policies of usa hurt humans (eg afghanistan is surely a human wrong caused mostly by usa); a; being a diaspora scot i have this naive idea that we need to celebrate happiness of all peoples an stop using media to spiral hatred across nations but I expect that isnt something an anchor can host generally but for example if an anchor really loves ending covid everywhere then at least in that market she needs to want to help united peoples, transparency of deep data etc
