pre-g to 4 G Peter Drucker- When Norman Macrae aged 10 first met Peter Drucker in British Embassy of Stalin's Moscow , Drucker was about 10 years ahead in journalising the world and all the worst big systems in history that had spiralled into world wars and great depressions let alone big brother tyrants like stalin and hitler. Norman served his last days as a teenager in world war 2 navigating airplanes over modrenday myanmar and Bangladesh which slowed down his journalist career but may have grounded his edge in Asian realities. Norman started writing for the Economist in 1947 and by 1956 both men were writing books questioning old world colonial systems- normans' first book on the idiosyncracies of the london capital market and peter druckers classic on the practice of management were published in almost thew same year 1956.
Both writers PD, NM 1 2 had largely similar questions about system changes needed if humanity was ever to go :
They coined new terms without knowing who was first eg telecommuting, privatisation "knowledge worker". Its important to note they almost completely agreed on ideas- though later most of the vocabulary they coined was deliberately mis-sponsored to mean the opposite. This happens a lot wherever big management systems (and the politcians they sponsor) seldom like small enterprises being fully valued let alone families as the microeconomic unit we could all be celebrating if sustainability of human and Ai is the game peoples play in the 2020s

Within a few years the world was debating if tech helps man reach the moon is there any mission impossible on earth.
5G 2020s (4 3 2) 1 G 1970s
And Gordon Moore of Intel had just written a paper promising that microelectronic engineers would improve tech 100 fold every G decade to 2020s -that's a trillion fold more powerful microchips in 2030 than man raced to the moon with. So who's knowledge should teachers and everyone linkin to now if millennials are to be the first sustainability generations and THE UN 17 sdgs are to be celebrated as possible wherever the next girl is born.
