bloomberg dalio schwarzman ,fink

now we know what sdgs are supposed to unite nations- we need to rate those who control global investments by how far ahead of time they dare be in empowering youth as the sdg generation - this is the opositetrachk to quarterly profiteering - which have the trust of their funders to be there for exponentials across generations not maximising how much each separate generation extracts from mother earth

these may be new yorks biggest movers and shakers- desperately seek help for corresponding whos who by finaciers capitals across hemispheres - chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk washington dc economistfuture.com

joi ito

mit in boston is the most interesting square mile walk in the world of human innovation

other places in sa eg silicon valley dont do walks- you would have to spend  day in a car getting to 3 labs if you were lucky where in mit you can arrange as many as your connections permit

media lab is arguably the most open space both to see range of human enginnering aps that could be mobilised next and to have your card marked of labs to visit

you could start elsewhere eg berners lee's lab - where access to worldwideweb has been kept freer than speech and other things you do with e-

in 2020s you could find out where schwarzman alumni humanise artifucial intelligence and doubke check with oxfrd both the morality and health consequebce of ai- and triangularise with tsinghua how one fifth of worlds people most urgentky need machine intel humanised

or you could go to legatum lab - ironically the worlds poorest vilage women inspited mobile design of banking for a billion unbanked www.bkash.om- today the main billioonaires helping replicate this are gates and ma- however the code is supported by legatum as well as caring backers in dubai and across toyotas foundation of middle eas franchises- a coalition linked in by abdul latif who sponsors some of mit's goal specific sdg lab collaborations

joi ito was headhunted out of japan by the cofounder of media lab negrpronte- in between one of the other lab coordinators wrote the sorceres apprentice- if you werent practically able to do a square mile walk around 2010- sorceres app was one great guide- a journal called innovatins edited by the same family quadirs that scaled digital banking for billion unbanked is also fun to imaginer with 2010 through 2015 though it connects global south with mit wizards not as far as we can search east asia'scoastal belts and digital worlds

mahbubani - singapore human developments essential curricula

x update feb 2021 i almost completely agree with this national university of singapore - Kishore Mahbubani course
-if you know anyone who might enjoy it please pass it on-
-if you know someone who wants to constructively criticise it, sure i am here to learn too
chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk
if we could rewind the world to december 2016 this course seems to me to be exactly in line with kissinger's interview with cheng li at ckgsb/committee10 event- again if i have misunderstood i am here to learn

also my understanding is these logics are similar to why schwarzman wanted to help share worldwide studies of china starting with engineers at mit and tsinghua and moral mediators at oxford; or similar to what the late great ezra vogel celebrated

the course is free to audit at edx to the end of february  https://courses.edx.org/courses/course-v1:NUS+UCR101x+3T2020/course/

its main recommendation is as follows-ask chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk if you want a copy of syllabus outline
======================

While there are 1.4 billion people living iChina and 330 in America, there are still 6 billion people

 living outsideIn the ColWar that America launched against the SovieUnion, many countries

 around the world joined Americas side, including the West Europeans and major Third World

 countries, like Turkey, Iran, Egypt, Pakistan, Thailand, Indonesia and China. This time around, ithe

 contest against China, virtually no countrhas explicitljoined America’s side. Blooking acase

 studies of countries like Australia and Europe, India & Japan, this week explain America

 will find it difficult tmarshal a strong coalition against ChinaInstead, most countries of the world

 are likely to develop closer trade and investment links witChina and not take sides in the US-China                                                                                                                                                                                           geopoliticacontest.

Bearing imind all the points made above an in earlier weeks, this course will conclude by

recommending that a wiser course of action for America to take would be to realise that fundamen-

tally there are five non-contradictions between America and China. The term non-contradiction is not

often useiWestern discourse. The Western mind is useto black-and-white distinctionsOne side

is right; one side is wrong. The Chinese mind is different. Both blacand white can be rightas 

spelled out ithe philosophy of yin and yang.

 

Hence, for example, if the primary goal of America is timprove the well-being of its people and if

China has a similar goafor its people, both sides can cooperate and fulfil their goals. Similarly, both sides share a common goain overcoming globachallenges, like global warming and Covid-19. Eveithe area of valueand civilizational differences, both sidecan adopt a philosophy of live and lelive.

The strategic goal of this course therefore is tenable the students tengage in deereflection on this

major geopoliticacontest thahas broken out. Deeper reflection will show that a wiser course of

action for both sidewould be to avoid an outright zero-sum geopoliticacontest and thereby improve

the well-being of their own people and the six billion who live outsideIn short, huge stakeare at

play in this contest. A course like this is absolutely criticaand vital now.
