2 views of what happened between 1500 and 1946:

It was good that some people (about a fifth of the human race) found ways to be up to 200 times more productive than ever before

It is tragic that the fifth did this in ways (slavery, colonization, seizing others natural resources) that excluded the four fifths

Common sense as well as natures evolutionary laws Both ways unite round one urgent vision- we must celebrate every way of changing value chains that includes the four fifths

World Record Jobs Researchers feature known way of changing value chains to maximise youth livelihoods and sustainability generation

1 Bangladesh shows us the elast controversial celebration of all – it changes disaster relief, development, ais and charity so the poorest village mothers built their own community services- they did this between 1972 and 1996 with no electricity and solely with trust in girl power; from 1996 tech partners including mobile and solar have helped them design the most extraordinary leapfrog models

celebrate technologists applying big-data-small wizardry to celebrate enterprise sustaining those with the least (or facing the most severe climate or other sustainability crises) – eg alumni circles of jack ma

World Record Book of Jobs Creation - chapter 1 version 7.18

Thank you to the world's greatest job creators Sir Fazle and Jma- and the greatest conflict resolution mapmakers Xi Jinping, Antonio Guterres and Pope Francis
For the quarter of the world's population living in s asia, job creating independence has been a long time coming.

In 1860 , James Wilson's intervention laster less than a year - the founder of the economist dying from lack of oralk reydratiion; gandhi's 40 year attempt 1906-1946 ended with his assassination

Bangladesh' 46 year progress now depends mainly on friends and alumni of Sir Fazle Abed- the greatest livelihood creator for the world's poorest women; fortunately brac's story is an exponential rising game of two halves- to 1996 having no electricity or anything other than person to person community building to 1996; selectively choosing the best digital partners from 1996 as brac became understood as the world's most collaborative ngo provided you really wanted to innovate solutions that integrated the ultra poorest or indeed those at ultra risk from personal or nature's safety

Over the same period China has also seen corresponding exponential development. But with the huge difference- as early as 1972 the chinese diaspora were the 3rd strongest financial network in the world; they were delighted to inward invest by replicating the win-win trading ways they had already proven across superport islands like HK
singapore, taiwan

1966 Bangladesh sort of became a leapfrog pilot test for China which quickly offered order of magnitude m,ore funding to mobile telecoms and mirosolar. But still it wasnt until 2008 that China fully trusted 3 mega internet ecosystems the BAT (story 2008 - story 2018 china and bangla marry their greatest human tech innovators of girl end poverty)

Up to moon landing, opportunities to innovate were unvenly distributed geographically- eg up to half of the world's peoples had no access to electricity grids
Practical Innovators : value train trasnsformation empowering small eneterprises and community Jobs Creation
In 2018 Jack Ma first took 20% share of Sir Fazle's Bkash part of the world's largest NGO BRAC
Sir Fazle Abed had been job creating for the poorest villagers in Bangladesh (without electricity or other grids : roads, water, telecoms) since 1972 redesigning such markets as finance, agricultural produce, health, education, crafts ; from 1996 he had slowly started to attract some of the greatest tech partners bringing digital connectivity through combination of mobile telecoms and micro solarpower. 1999 brought a university and the start of strategic partners in selected nations worldwide

How education is designed fascinates me. You can see that the most exciting examples of education free girls and boys to believe in each other’s capabilities to make the most of life for each other

Nature ( a cyclone that killed half a million people) caused Fazle Abed to devote his life designing the most exciting livelihoods education girls have ever networked. A geography teacher caused Jack Ma to become the greatest livelihoods educator boys and all technologists for the community have ever seen. We will review hundreds of educational connections you can help them linkin in through every community if youth are to co-create the first sustainability generation 
I am fascinated by the purpose of markets (eg health food banking water energy waste homes transportation mobile space arts sports internet nations (supercities, global villages)  worldwide trading routes …). Why? Because Keynes explained the way we the people design markets will determine whether the human race is sustainable or not.

Being responsible for five fifths of humanity is a big challenge. Instead of the scary foci of false media we wish the world celebrated its good fortune of current quality of leadership of xi jinping representing how china’s fifty of  the world’s people win-wins with the rest of the human race, ;pope francis navigation of a fifth of the worlds as fransciscans , guterres integration of five fifths of the world’s people. All three also have the curiosity to help mediate the intelligences of humans and artificials. Something started changing after world war 2. We humans started doubling investments in M-technologies every 7 years. By 2015 we were spending over 1000 times moore. This is why we recommend viewing 2016-2030 is the most exciting time to be alive. As we face the acceleration through 1000 to 4000 times moore we need to innovate systems addressing all 17 sustainability goals. 

You can help us map the search for world record jobs creator.  Please forget nationalism and other ism – who do you  know who is locally helping youth translate and replicate similar sorts of action networking solutions to Abed-Francis-Guterres-Ma-Xi. Which are the top 13 world trade routes to mediate if mother nature and humankind are to urgently win-win out of every community?

The 4 m’s interest me- mother media mediation, meditation.

TO BE OR NOT TO BE- ENTREPRENEURIAL REVOLUTIONS LAST CALL
The main purpose of our book is to invite you to join the search for jobs creators between 1946 and 2030. We aim to show this is an exceptional era with communications and computing technology doubling every 7 yeras. Thats a moore's law of 2""12- over 4000 times moore. Inspired by the coming moon landing, friends and alumni of The Economists's end poverty sub=-editor started debating Entrepreiurial Revolution's post-industrial innovation in 1968. On this expoenetial time scale- moon landing occurred at around 10 times moore

4000+ times more  acceleration of innovation over as short a period as 84 years -ie one primarily involving mutual responsibilities of 3 generations -grandparent, parents, and the youth half of the wprld aged under 30 - for each other)-is unprecedented. It will lead to the best or worst of times.

 Best means sustaining 10 billion brilliant livelihoods by 2100. Worst means the extinction of our species will become unstoppable. 2030 is not a precise date for the irreversibility of the connectivity of human trading relations to be so deeply webbed that our impacts on mother earth as well as on each other;s communities and families. Maybe we have to 2037 but we now feel  it is msartre to take 2030 deadline for humanity's final examination as to whether we are linking ever more sustainably or towards the 22nd century seeing the last birth of our species. Nor is this a sudden assesment of expoentual opportyunitry and threat. Our 1984 book The 2025 Report celebrated proable timelines to 2025 if sustainability was to be achievable. In 2018 we are way behind the timelines we had hoped elders would be investing -and empowering through education - in youth by now. But as Nations only united around 17 sustainability goals in 2015, we suggest that the era of 1000 to 4000 times moore gives one good last chnace to work on celebrating sustainability out of every place on the planet.

Sadly it seems to us, historians have largely failed to record job creation as their main story. So let's begin with some jobs creators from before 1946. We welcome your views of whose stories we have missed out - we will feature those we learn from thanls to you at www.EconomistRefigee.com where the 17 sustainability goals are also celebrated as stars to navigate round.

From pre 1946 history we have chosen for started to discuss how these job creators impa ted their alumni.
Mahatma Gandhi - who started the 20th century by calling on his peoples on the south asia coastal belt to free themselves from colonisation. We will discuss gandhi's life as a period of four quarters. Interestingly the third quatyer involved his attempts to redesign a total education system before amplifying his people's call for independence

More than a centtury before Gmadhi's birth Scot Adam Smith had started publishing ideas that mapped transparent explorations of ,markets as a better idea that empire and colonisation. Adam's argument was never really understood in his lifetime. By 1843 another Scot James Wilson had started debating Adam Smith with Queen Victoria with the consequence that she decided ruling over a commonwealth constitution was a smarter idea than slave-making Empire - Walter Bagehot took up Victoria's baton as James died before his time in Calcutta 1860. We would argue that female member so the British Royal family have set the benchmark for empowering women hold up half the sky at the extreme heights of social classes around the world. However for royals to turn a juggernaut like British Empire takes a long time- as wise Eastern anthropologists say the king cant chnage until the people change.

Marco Polo remains to this day one the most extraordinary journalist of exploration. Thanks to hiom we know how old world markets reached a peak of sustainability with an extraordinary overland relay between hundreds of neighbouring regions- the marvelous silk road. Never have grade and cultural interdependence been so well webbed. The Western terminal of the silk road was the ed sea coastal belt and included the birth place of golden rule religions. We would point out Francis and the Clares with their love of networking last mile nature and health as benchmarks. Meanwhile the eastern end of the silk road thrived around spiritual movements -there are a lot of ying and yangs to study if you dare to let you mind roam the confucian way

We encourage the main author of each world record jobs creator profile to weave in any family experiences.We believe families are the core dynamic of building both sustainable communities and win-win world trade.

For example our main editor of valuing gandhi is a diaspora scot whose grandfarter was justice in mumbai for 25 years of mediating Gandhi. His grand parents were pharmacists and nurses -eg kemps corner is still a nighborhood in mumbai.

    E-Commerce News & Commentary from the Alibaba Group

    RWANDA FIRST IN AFRICA TO JOIN ALIBABA-LED EWTP

    Alibaba Group and the government of Rwanda have agreed to multiple bilateral initiatives to promote the African country’s economy through increased cross-border trade, capacity building and tourism.
    The signing of three memoranda of understanding, witnessed by Rwandan President Paul Kagame and Alibaba Group Executive Chairman Jack Ma, took place on Wednesday in the capital city of Kigali.
    First eWTP Hub in Africa
    A major tenet of the agreements is Rwanda’s admission to the Electronic World Trade Platform, the first in Africa so far.  The eWTP provides small and medium-sized enterprises with operational infrastructure, such as commerce logistics, cloud computing, mobile payments and skills training. By doing so, the eWTP allows SMEs the chance to participate in the global economy when that opportunity might otherwise be available only to multinational companies.
    This is Ma’s second trip to Rwanda after his initial visit to Africa in 2017. During those visits, Ma had said he was impressed by the country’s young entrepreneurs and local businesses and pledged to support the growth of the digital economy in Africa. The partnership is a step toward fulfilling that pledge.

    We've been busy running Bridge nurseries and schools plus supporting government schools and teachers over the last month. Hear about some of the highlights: 
    • A new UK Government DFID report makes landmark findings that parents' income is not related to strong learning in Bridge schools in Lagos
    • Nigerian government teachers celebrate as 7,000 of them graduate from Bridge training
    • The IFC show their support for Bridge at the World Bank's annual meetings
    • We meet Everline, a top pupil sitting her end of school exams in Kenya
    • A London think tank looks at the evidence of our outcomes and praises Bridge's work
                                                                       
    A new UK Government DFID report ‘Learning in Lagos’  revealed that in our schools in Nigeria family background was not correlated to children’s high learning outcomes. The DFID report makes a landmark finding that in Bridge schools children enjoy equal learning benefits. Parents' income, education, and speaking English at home had no link to their children's academic performance in Bridge. The report states: “Students from better socioeconomic backgrounds have higher learning achievement in private and public schools, but not at Bridge schools.” 
                                   
    A London think tank, Centre for Policy Studies, supports Bridge's work tackling the global learning crisis. The author says the global education shortage is a combination of children out of school and children in school not learning. The think tank outlines how Bridge is working to improve the situation: "Bridge schools in Lagos are delivering an education that is both of a higher standard and more equitable than the alternatives."  The author, Oliver Wiseman, goes on to say that "Bridge looks a lot like a good news story: not just more schools in parts of the world that need them, but an approach that appears to be working where others have failed."

    In Benin City, Nigeria, seven thousand government teachers have been celebrating their graduation into the local government's new education improvement programme called EdoBEST. These teachers in over 600 schools are now educating around 150,000 children across Edo state. The aim of EdoBEST is to improve the state’s 1,500 public primary and junior secondary schools; develop the skills of 15,000 government teachers and impact 300,000 pupils over a 4 year programme. Bridge is proud to be the technical partner on the teacher development and instructional design element of the programme. We are focused on supporting the Government to enhance teacher capacity and capability through a training programme that leverages technology and empowers teachers to improve learning outcomes. 
    Read the full story about EdoBEST here
                                   
    Philippe Le Houérou, CEO of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) was interviewed at the World Bank’s annual meetings in Bali. Houérou outlined why investments in private sector actors are key to the success of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. He expressed his support for Bridge's work saying “I grew up in Africa. It’s a situation of very bad public services in health and education. Repeating the same old recipe and expecting a better outcome is weird. Same cause, same consequences. We owe it to the kids, to the next generation, to try new things. We try with Bridge. I do believe that experimenting is good and we’re using economists to do evaluations."

    The World Economic Forum published an opinion editorial by Adesuwa Ifedi, Bridge Vice President of Policy and Partnerships for Africa. She writes about education reform in Nigeria highlighting the Edo government initiative and the UK DFID report. Adesuwa Ifedi says that what’s underway in the country is a huge boost for children. She highlights how innovative models, strong leadership and higher levels of learning attainment are transforming state schools across the region. Ifedi adds: “Strong political leadership and a clear vision demonstrate that state schools in Nigeria can be high quality, today. A generation of children can receive transformational learning opportunities enabling growth and prosperity in a state where 60% live below the poverty line.”
