Lee Kuan Yew #BR1 Singapore

Miraculously Japan went from post-war rubble to 2nd largest economy in about 20 years; less well valued is that
the Chinese's Diaspora's superports became the world's 3rd largest financial network by 1975- ready to invest in
China's return to the world stage - in time for human sustainability? thanks to extraordinary foundation of
Singapore place branding and WorldRecordJobs creator Lee Kuan Yew 
singapore.jpg

. Now that the UN's 17 sustainability goals imagine an age where half of the most valuable ideas needs tio be new to the world every 5 years, old academia's processes and ageist and sexist heirarchoies are neither economic nor social nor sustainable...Instead ..
Why not: linkin as an explorer (SWOT) of something that you are passionate about and feels right, search out its leadership centre of gravity in linking productive and demanding realtsionships of worlers and owners, customers and societies, local and worldwide sustainability goals,  collaboration partners as much as competotors' try and become trusted by alumni of the leadership team provided they still know the relevance of celebrating the founding dna. Singapore shows the advantage of a small nation in this era ...  
The idea of place branding itself was to many a challenge to faith and other cultural drivers when i first published why singa;pore was a benchmark place brand in 1987. There are so many choices that Singapore needed to get right which fortunately can be studied in iterative details in the writings and most tristed counsels of leader (nation builder) Lee Kuan Yew. Again if I get one of these details wrong dont give up, singapore is vaut le voyage to learn everything you can from its thriving people's endeavours to link safe and joyful worls with all they connect.
Start with the fact that this nation didnt want independence from Britain or certainly not the rushed independence firced onto it - of course you know you are safe a a British protectorate one day, of course we (the peopes of britaon) cant afford to protect you the next day.

That was Lee's first chalenge- could Sinagpore (then 3 ?million people) naviigate going independent both of UK and Malaysia at same time? The twin crises of failing as a nation were top of his mind- could leadership keep singpapore safe for all cultures; could leadership create always enough jobs (almost every job specification chnaged as the British disconnecetd).
Across 5 decades unlike any other leader i can find Lee kept this questions top of mind (above any party debate) and designed a constitution and internal collabiration between peoples that never failed to value these questions. The results being that often times Singpoare has also helped held the whole of asean cultures togther whereas other regions of the world got into teriifying cultural messes. And Singapore evolved within 3 generations (grandparent parnet kids) as one of the wealthiest per head of population as well as the most exciting learning isle on the planet.
Now lets celebrate that Singapoae is a valuation benchmark of small nation branding. it is not big in population under 6 million; it is not in top 100 in amount of land. It has no underised land- it cannot expect to grow a population bugger than today's. THese are opposite chalenges to a nation such as eg Russia that has the natural reources of the least crowded place on the pkanet but the most opposite of infrastructure chalenges imaginable to singapore's. Sinagpore could be 100% a gtrading place not a making one as far as indsutrail things go. But it could be the world's most open source knowhow connectoir of life critical info, of smart apps, of education experiments every safe-for-girls community needs.
Neither its small population or its small land base matter provided singpaore can be a most collabirative place in the world for those whose sustainbility it can most help multipoly while truly doing no harm to any other nations. I don't want to push this proposition too far but in 2018 it is noteable that few nations support china's youth's dreams more than singpaore but at the same time its the place donald trump feels comfort in meeting Nirth Korea's leader
Geographically Sinagpore has devleoped a charmed existence - well its worked extremely hard to make that the case. I first viisted singpoare in 1983- that was a decade i did a lot of traveling as a major contributor to a 50 country and 1000 market databse on branding what societioes most valued ; this had started up around express database technolgy created out of harvard and MIT. Singapore was the dirst time i actually enjoyed being at an airport. Later in a small way i helped Sinagpore Airlines celebrate with the BBC (videos of branding the marketing advantage) how Singpaore had changed all airline passneger for the better. Tiny things like the global industry monopoly IATA had regulations for how much meat there should be in a sandwich io economy class. We thought meat sandwiches should taste good if economy passnegers wanted that during 12 hour flights. On ant issues other than safety we tore up IATA's rule book.
As it happened I had half a day off. Back in 1983 it was the first time I had seen an Asian city in the middle of a complete makeover achieved in under a decade. There were gleaming new skyscrapers and air conditioned malls. Ther were arcades of older street shops. On one I was surprised to see a prominent notice on the door. Dear tourist - be advised that this establishment cheated a customer 8 months ago - so sorry. Apparently particularly if you were a small service business and cheated a customer you had to advertise that for the next year. Singapore and tourists wanted to become the worlds favorite shopping hub as well as well as the workd's vaforite airport and shipping suoerport.
Of courseabove all Singapore is where maritime geography matters. As Japan, Korea, all the Chinese Diaspora superports (Taiwan, Hong Kong ...) then the whole of China / East Asia's coastal belt grew shipping's world trade, the whole of that Eastern world has to pass by singpaore to trade with the west. Singapore quite literally depended on multiplying goodwill beteen eastern and western people- if it could earn the trust and help every person thrive who traded freely between east and west why not.
Some would say singapore had a dark side. But if you think executing drug smugglers is uncivilised, you havent really acounted for histiry. Around 1860, one fifth of the world's people living in China closed themsleves to world trade rather than accept the British Empire's ulimatum that opium should be used as a curency in exhcange for the sort after chiense silks and spices. Other extreme local ;aws involved a culture of tidiness- chewing gum is also a banned substance in Singapore- and if a man went tp a a post office and his hair was judged too long he was told to wait at the back of the queue. Much more importantly, Sinapore develoepd the smartest housing policy I have ever seen. Affordable city skyscrapers for all but only assuming you play 2 roles- celebrate ciultural fusion, value the community spaces that all tower blocks depend on to make them family-friendly.
Notes:
Singapore never let rival political parties interfere with progress the future of its youth as well as theuir health contribution to the whpole of society
Singapore was always asking what would the world miss next if we dont deliver it
Sinagpore is a small nation but potentially a perfect partner with we the peoples of any size of nation
Originally one thing singapore kept wss british commercial law- it didnt do much rewriting of the rules of the game. It may even j\have asked Britsh Queen's Councillors to arbitrate over disputes with global companies etc rarher than run risk of ever more expensive courtroom games
Sinagpore is a benchmark superport- up tp half the world's peoples depend on mapping how their coastal ports and continental roads configure with singapore's hub (yes it is true that probably only panama and places responsible for the suez canal have quite such a geographical uniqueness to value). Maybe American people cannt learn directly ftom singapore or maube they could start asking is the way our 40 plus states and federal investment budgets designed reklevant to a owrld of 4000 time smore communicatyuons technolgies where the virtal and real waves of trade need to be intergated naturally - not so much by a legal constitution wriiten in the stone oif amendments and ruled over by nine of the supreme elders of the nation  






Back in 1976 the new curicula of Entrepreneuria Revolution clarified that major legal constitutions of weestrn organsiation would need mashup:

yes the corpiorate is the only form that scales-(positove income model permiting reinvestment) that does nkot mean that quarterly profit-taking is sustainable or purposeful as a sole audit o leadership
yes if a government has unbiassed back from future staffing may be able to preventy a nation's or a world's people from being traped by vetsed interst monoploies and historically tazes have been how society funds its love for all its peoples driven by empowering youth to improve the human lot- but governments histiorically are not leaders of innovation actual engineering 
yes if a charity lives and elarns with an extremely disadvanatged group it may know more than experts particularly those who eg may have priovilieged infrastructire whuich the duadvantaged dont have- but the ris is to keep funding istelf leaders if the ngo spend time on advicating in top circles not ubderstanding thos at their bottiom 
Big natiosn were mist likely to suffer from failing to adapt to ER as 4000 times more communstaions etchnolgu linked us in. IN small comoact island natiobns people interact naturally- silo-busting is relatiuvely easy as long as the poeple keep celebrating that

masa-son

4. Masa Son sees more Vision Funds ahead
Softbank chief Masayoshi Son tells Bloomberg Businessweek he plans to raise a fresh $100 billion fund every two to three years and to spend around $50 billion a year.
By way of comparison, the Bloomberg article points out that the entire U.S. venture capital industry invested around $75 billion in 2106, per the National Venture Capital Association.
Other revelations:
  • Son initially was going to pitch the first Vision fund as a $30 billion entity, but decided to up the stakes at the last minute. "Life’s too short to think small,” he told a lieutenant.
  • When Son made his first pitch with the $100 billion figure, the potential client laughed, but Son kept going, raising nearly $100 billion, including $45 billion from Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund.
Why it matters: Softbank's Vision Fund has already reshaped the tech industry, inspiring other investors to up their aspirations and fueling a wave of ever more cash-hungry startups.

Mahbubani #BR1 Singapore

Mahbubani Past dean of lee yuan school of public service singapore- author of the twin book series - has the west lost it? can asians think?- mentor to the wise summit of education laureates founded by sheikha moza of qatar round the inaugural livelhoods-education laureate sir fazle abed of brac (who revolutionised how asia's poorest nation bangladesh was rebuilt by poor village women)

reference see 1977 survey China and more surveys of The Economist's end poverty editor at  normanmacrae.net on celebrating each others nations
Why should the two thirds of the human race who live in the eastern hemisphere be modest about demanding their children lead collaborations of the sustainability generation? Has the west's media been lying to its youth for decades about purposeful livelihoods and how 4000 fold more communications technology changes the world if education in which everyone needs to value every opportunity in their communities of belng both a lifelong learner and teacher?

===========================
National U Singapore Dean   Kishore Mahbubani
We are not aware of a 20th C national leader who relentlessly questioned the future jobs implications of developing a nation with more goodwill than the late great Lee Kuan Yew (father of Singapore as an Independent Nation)
When we  recommend worldwide youth (and parents, educators) to study miracles of post-colonial win-win trade fro the East - we recommend studying a cultural fusion: japan, south korea, the china disapora superports, China mainland and Asean, and Bangladesh and notably the India of Gandhi's dreams
Singapore seems to us to be at the crossroads of 2 great human interest stories- the superports which not only provided the initial inward investment into the Chinese mainland but which are now part of belt road mapping as a curriculum students and teachers should be rehearsing everywhere. When it comes to inter-hemisphere trade. it bridged the far east superports like Taiwan, Hong Kong, then those blossoming on China's East Coast with what has become the UAE's transformation beyond being a mix of desert and oil wells started by Dubai. Of course, the question that 5 million people superports on their own can't answer is what nations with huge lands and from 100 million to one billion people need to do to join new technology's death of distance age.
One of the soft clues we may visibly celebrate a degree of multicultural harmony - prcacticed  wherever Asean spirit has blossomed healthily and naturally. Moreoiver, The medical anthropologists Jim Kim and Paul Farmer have show the franciscan way not only builds last mile healths services for all but lives up to the continent wide debate that Latin America hosted in the 1960s. While North America was racing to the moon, the half of the continent to its south still largely without electricty grids was rehearsing what if new technolgies are preferentially app'd to the poor.  Due to cold war and assasinations of Kennedies, Latin America never widely answered its own beautiful question but miracluously girls across Bangladesh villagsd did. This happy story is discovered when the microeducation systems of Sir Fazle Abed and Muhammad Yunus are truly mapped from the bottom-up –see how the WISE education laureates were founded so that the world’s most trusted first ladies could share this good news woirkdwide
Professors Mahbuban's book on Asean is a treasure in showing how to expolore culture and value goodwill faiths. He clarifies how the Asean club of nations has in many ways sustained more trust across peoples than any regional pact. Frankly speaking the european union looks dismally bossed over compared to what Asean has empowered at its most 
There are also more spoecific lessons from singapore such as:
eg how public housing was deliberately built to mix up diverse cultures and as a community platform taking pride in your building and neigborhood; it would seem that
Singapore's housing policy is one every supercity should understand (where we defeine a supercity as one designed so that all families thrive and are sceure that we are investing in job craeting education
Then again Singapore se4ld=-examines iteself as what can the smartest learning isle be for its people and for everyone it trades with
What is remarkable is the start of Singapore's independence came pretty suddenly. As reports show, the British rather suddenty informed singapore that there was no longer defence budget to support it and in those early years  cultural relations with malaysia were complex as were the extraordinary micro questions of who to build hi-trust trading relatiosnhips with? The answer emerged with the world's firts superairline and superport- become the shopping-torist stopevrt space of the world. Display every kind of future quality and value good. Suddenly Sinagpore was living up to some modern-day Kipling's paradise the way Hangzhou has lived up to Marco Polo's most beacutiful city of markets in the late 1200s.
Today singapore is a strong supporter of every belt road the continent can map -and why wouldnt every hemisphere want to play the mapping game of how belt roads can maximised each youth's entrepreneur inside?
-In particular trying to help china and india see how much their emerguing friendship could add to the region. It also helps that malaysia has commiitted fully to testing with jack ma the EWTP idea that ecommerce can bring free sme world trading. Few people make a stronger case than mahbuban on how natural it can be if china and india retake the position that eixtsted up to 1800 of countries being the largest fair (value chian) traders in line with their population size. Mahbuban makes a wise facilitator of how much the west needs to adjust id peace and millennials sustainAble world trade are to be won for all our children. Singapore as a small and great nation can help make this case that especially to those who somrimes fear china- the sustainabilit generation requires many collaboration ideas that it is best for the world's 21st C centre of gravity open sources with supercities and milennial tech wizards and girl power everywhere (not patented as only invented here)
Mahbubani is very clear how western media and leaders havent prepared their peoples to see the opportunites of the 1000 times more  tech connected woirld (2016 vs 1946) ; and if this is the investment that has chnaged the wprld's possibilities as man designs structures on the same global scale as natuire's we need the most urgent climate leadership to blossom even faster than the superport learning isle model did over the last half century

Over 45 years ago in The Economist, we srarted hosting 20 years of debates on why the west needed to prepare for a 21ts C learning economy in which all people thrive. By failing to map this,
we risk losing sustainabiliity of our species, as well as missing the opportunity of the best of times: whenever a girl or boy is born she has a fair chance at living a brilliaint life. As a pure population numbers game, this means that all parents and educators should have been helping kids celebrate:

Mahbubani not only makes this case but explains why all asean peoples should now be mediating positive relationships between chinese and india youth especially on :

1 economies built round goirls education,
2 media that celebrates tech wizards of big data small and borderless sme-markets world (see how Jack Ma faciliated this at China G20 in 2016) -

trudeau saviour of english and french speaking race

as you may know the french and english were the main colonisers of africa and asia and slave traders - from 1500 they destroyed sustainable community trades all over the world with mercantile colonialism until north america declared freedom  of entrepreunrship from colonisation in 1776 - immigrants did pretty good job of global free trade up to moon landing (though not internal community buolding in which buses were still segr\egated to mid 1960s and blood was spilt over 2 kennedies and one king)l sadly late 20th c mass media embedded fear across the nation, vietnam proved one war of generosity too many, oil shocks started to muddle why wars were being fought- and congress toitally failed to celebrate the fall io the berlin wall welcoming the people of russia into a fre world

this left it to canada- to wait to ask is the world of mobile millennials sans fromtieres really being run for the big brother club of 7 nations or 20 nations or for 195 nations

the first chance came in 2008 when america and its EU G7 buddies destroyed youths futures yet again with the most monsttrous of banking frauds (subprime)- and a total absence of judges able to do anything about it- heck knows what a supreme court full of geriatrics is for -

 so canada  helped celebrate the g7 being replaced by the g20, and agendas being set by the homework of citizens group  -none with more gusto that the year 2015-2016 first of the sustainability gpoals era- each time a g7 baton hosted the g20 it didnt understand the process at all all until trump finally declared the g7 itself worthless in 2018 leaving the g20 with a heck of a lot of space to open- meanwhile for this not in the G20 China has opened up G195 meetings which start by asking are the world's ports inclusively mapped given that 90% of world trade is shipped -and particularly given the old world's crises with landlocked nations- have Roads (of rail and cable and green energy) been designed so that no community is left out of 21st c connectivity -more at valuetrue.com

toronto is overwhelming favorite as all america favorite youth city -its got some wats to go in living up to blockchain by a great source of mentoring in the Tapscots; it responded to jack ma's offer to help create a million jobs with extraordinary gusto as you can see at Gateway17.com - well done Justin Trudeau- youth democracy in the west hasnt sustained such goodwill leadership for 500 years- the next trick is for canada to lead the way in 8 arctic circle nation empowerment of the sustainability generation - probably mother nature will be the judge of success or failure across #BR11 Acrtic Belt Road
