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

Astronaut Ron Garan poses massive collaboration challenge ( more http://spaceappschallenge.org/challenges/ ) at Yunus Centre  
further referneces -WESTERN POLITICIANS/MEDIA FAILURE


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) - 
which summits going
forward 2018-9 can help the world unite
around these valuation logics howver much they take away the western poltician's power to boss.
