From 16 young journalist trips t bangladesh 2007-2018 we discovered it took 100000 person community building by women to change aid1.0 to 2.0; by raising a billion asian village mothers productivity from next to zero to global village networkers of deepest sdg replications
we can all celebrate the greatest economic miracle of the last quarter of the 20th century or any time where peopels had no access to elctricity grids
LAST BEST CHANCE - HALF TIME SDGS 2015-30
as we dash into aid 4.0 with what is called UN2.0 in New York and Geneva, my guess: humanising AI for youth as first sustainability generation will take 10 million being sdg-cities (ie mapped as 100 by 100,000 womens kindness community builders) to leap beyond such messes as climate, putin and FTX destruction - anyone else any guesses - communitycapitalism.xyz

adam smith friends in glasgow have been messaging my circles of friends since 2008 -the 250th celebration summit of adam smith moral sentiments book celebrated human development economics greatest miracle
performed by the networks of a billion asian village mothers 2008-1972 ( a story the clintons first hooked into before bill's presidency but whose education lessons got lost by US media and vested interests to the extent that by 2008 obama did not even know how his mom's real contributions to sustainability (as you can read between the lines in this 2012 freakonomics testimony);
tik tok - by the 2020scovid destroyed youth's opportunity to progress university of stars at Glasgow cop26- so in 2023 june I am told 265th celebration of adam smith will be called microeducationsummit - will you join in? i can put you in touch if you need - email@example.com
my parsing of existential crisis we now face is: if the elder half of the world continues to extinguish youth, then i see that as an education & cooperation problem - needing extraodinary changes in education - Guterres timetable 2021-2022 as year nations presented solutions to that problem - but if thos did emerge in september NY at UN old media has not had time to share them ( while crypto media is mmm fantasy or reality - join search worldclassdaos.com - eg look at www.ed3dao.com a really courageous attempt but??? )
other people probably smarter than me see extinction's risk as a money problem
or perhaps its a maths problem
or a media problem www.sdgmetaverseprize.org (whose story is your life about anyhow?) or even a cultural kindness crisis of why do couples parent? (if you are not aware ( or your public servants are not aware) this is the defining challenge of anyone living in the exciting decade of 2020s or any time)
if you have any positive ideas on whose lifetime stories (& cooperation alumni networks) worldrecordjobs can 2020s celebrate please tell me firstname.lastname@example.org - many thanks (like 4 generations of my clan: I am just a diaspora scot; back in 1980s i helped mit/harvard collect first worldwide database on what societies wanted from the world's biggest marketers).

keynes -learning from his own experiences - system innovation means adapting your own logical advice
Few, if any, people offer more vital lessons from controversial moments in development of humankind : search out where Keynes stood up against conventional wisdom or may even have appeared to change his own advice.
Economics needs to adapt to context as does human intelligence . There is no one standard theory correct for all times, all places. Rule monopolies spin exponential impacts -take an invention like plastic as one example. Extremely convenient (healthy and cheap to use individually) in my lifetime from 1951 has gone from vital convenience to huge danger. By not requiring peoples to pay for the cost of waste disposal- we are are suffocating ocean life with plastic, we are destroying dynamics of mother nature. When species do that they usually end up going the way of the do do.
Or soon after I was born conclusive evidence showed how costly to health and health systems cigarette smoking was. What the world needed was to compensate growers of tobacco for changing what crop they grew. Parallel lessons were needed on drugs such as opium-grown or synthesised compounds. Anglo-Sino hostory impacting at least a quarter of all humans shows a century of wrongs were compounded when in 1860 Britain's world trade rules required the Chinese to accept opium as a currency. The Chinese courageously closed their lands and peoples to world trade for over a century rather than develop generations around such a bodily destroying substance.
We the wealthiest peoples of mid 20th C did not need was the study of how mass media tv could use public servants into lying. see eg the evil playbook of Ernest Dichter Democracy does not exist as societally tenable, let alone be proud of nationally, when its integrity at the top is drowning in vested interests.
Back in 1843 this challenge to the English constitution (indeed the mindset of anyone speaking English as their lingua franca) was why London scots founded the Economist and engaged Queen Victoria in commonwealth mapping opposite to such colonial bads as incorporating slave making
LEGISLATION BY MONOPOLY THEORIES IS NEVER INTERGENERATIONALLY CORRECT
Hi-Trust (let alone hi-tech, hi-touch) mathematicians design systems which help us map closer to nature's own dynamics which always models at more micro levels of data interactions than we human can measure. Coincidentally the year I was born, 1951, mathematicians started a life determining interrogation with economic journalists. This centred round Von Neumann's challenge shared with Economist journalists -what goods will humans interact with 100 times more tech per decade?
By turning this question into “a severe contest with leadership” The Economist’s third half century evolved from third ranked English newspaper to one of a kind “world’s favorite viewspaper”.
Nuances of Von Neumann’s question
First, Neumann and his peer “Goats” of mathematics had spent most of their life on bads such as the nuclear arms race. Einstein’s correspondence with Gandhi is particularly compelling and insiders to Einstein’s logics knew why he was fatalistic about whether professions would ever leap beyond the quasi monopolies they rule over. You could define professions as networks who enjoy monopolistic contracts to rule licensed on the assumption that they value the Hippocratic Oath of do no harm. Dad had spent his last days as a teenage navigator, allied bomber command, Burma Campaign. So, he too knew about forced employment around bads, and a fortunate survivor believed economists and journalists had a duty to curiosity and valuing rational optimism.
Second, Von Neumann did not expect access to 100 times more tech to be distributed equally. Would those such as the forthcoming beneficiaries of Moore’s Law (associated with one of the twin labs celebrating Neumann’s AI legacy) open source to all societies innovations they were privileged to pilot worldwide? Norman’s 1982 Economist survey: why not Silicon Valleys everywhere is on point.
After 33 years of mainly anonymous journalism within The Economist’s collegiate culture, father and I started publishing 2025 Reports in different languages from 1984. We were aware that Orwell’s Big Brother endgame was one systems of systems outcome, but was there an optimistic way out. You can see from the retrospective review of 2025 Report by The Economists former Science Editor Viscount Ridley that we timelined the coming of webs 1 and 2 in relevant systemic detail but few of societal interventions we valued most have yet happened. 2010 Remembrance by Viscount Ridley, Science Editor
When I joined the Economist in 1983, Norman Macrae was the deputy editor. He died last week at the age of 86. Soon after I joined the staff, a thing called a computer terminal appeared on my desk and my electric typewriter disappeared. Around that time, Norman wrote a long article that became a book about the future. It was one of the strangest things I had ever read.
It had boundless optimism --
Over the last decade, I have written many articles in The Economist and delivered lectures in nearly 30 countries across the world saying the future should be much more rosy. This book explores the lovely future people could have if only all democrats made the right decisions.
combined with a weird technological vision --
Eventually books, files, television programmes, computer information and telecommunications will merge. We'll have this portable object which is a television screen with first a typewriter, later a voice activator attached. Afterwards it will be minaturised so that your personal access instrument can be carried in your buttonhole, but there will be these cheap terminals around everywhere, more widely than telephones of 1984. The terminals will be used to access databases anywhere in the globe, and will become the brainworker's mobile place of work. Brainworkers, which will increasingly mean all workers, will be able to live in Tahiti if they want to and telecommute daily to the New York or Tokyo or Hamburg office through which they work. In the satellite age costs of transmission will not depend mainly on distance. And knowledge once digitalised can be replicated for use anywhere almost instantly.
and a startlingly fresh economic perspective --
In the 1890s around half of the workforce in countries like the United States were in three occupations: agriculture, domestic service and jobs to do with horse transport. By the 1970s these three were down to 4 per cent of the workforce. If this had been foretold in the 1890s, there would have been a wail. ..
-From the 1920s we earthlings have been rocketing into an era of unprecdented change where we needed to land consequences for inhabiting erath not juts play games in space-
The game of playing with 100 times more tech per decade is one which the GOATS (Greatests) of maths including neumann, einstein turing saw as terminating our species unless we all cooperated in adaptations synchronised with nature's evolutionary rules. We humans have been very late in accepting this but in 2016 at year 1 review of the UN's 17 systainability goals- a group of educators rebelled. It was no longer appropriate to conclue education needs far more fund raising to achieev humanity's goal for developing children. Total change of gov and education needed;
keynes last chapter of general theory explains every global market from health down will become its own exponential sustaining or collapsing economy- so if we want millennials to be the first sdg generation we need to know who is the top sdg economist of markets like
health, safety, communities of homes
food water and human energy security
space and mobile mediation tech
deming engineers tech including world local trade infrastructures - ie place economists
supercomputing/analysis big social platforms
as discussed 1948-1993 by keynsians at the economist - and elsewhere-
the way to vote for each markets sustainability world class economist is the moral purpose they value the segment around not how much money is being extracted each quarter
99% of western economists have completely trashed keynes advice and hired themselves out to big vested interests- by fasiling to jail suc people from 2008 we have started to drown in nature's revenge be that virus or climactic- those alive today will make the 2020s the most exciting time to be alive - the last call for our species to thrive out of evry community on earth

EconomistDiary.com Peoples Log 2 oct 2022
EconomistHongKong.com World Class Citizen Entrepreneurship. Wanted to chat to HK people on 40th year of research Asia. En route positive surprises; Air China's Kind Staff, Taiwan Transfer Efficiency second to none.
40 tears ago my luckiest break in my working life was to start 60 trips to Asia (from US and Euro) doing reserach for Unilever creating their first national brand in Indonesia.
When I was asked to design survey on potential of Maya Sutra then new brand of Unilever in Asia, I didnt know that it would start my good furtune chatting to Asian peoples particularly about their development in a region whose world trade maps had in Colonial Days been designed to compound London Capitalism by extracting from peoples of every Asian coastline. Elsewhere eg Econo,istAsia.net go into herstory of how warboats and the engines controlled almost every Asian's working lives and families' human development. We should note that regarding Indonesia, having one of 2 pre-eminent Royal Dutch companies as a client opened up pamdora box of historical zigs and Zags. Could you imagine that the perceived value of nutmeg was so great to the colonia dutch that they swapped owning new york for Britannia keeping out of designing how to control Indonesia. Timing was of cousre everything in how maps of human develelopment ahppened. IF Americans had not thrown Britain out in 1776's Independence, doubling and redoubling of Colonising Asia and shutting down world trade of those on Chian mainland for over 100 yeras would not have happened. Of course all this is well known to those who study wht happened when founder of Economist Jmaes Wislo was too successfl in debating commonwealth as a happier mapping system with queen victoria. She said to him go start Charter bank by and for the quarter of humans 1860 of India subcontinemt; he did only to die month 9 of his attemptred entrepreneurial revolution of diarrhea in Calcutta. More on all that at EconomistDiary and TeachforSdgs including all may da'ds surveys of Asia Rising since 1962. A great personal joy to him as his first job as a teenager was navigator allied bomber command stationed out of Burma
WHAT I WANT TO REPORT
At a people level citoze small entrepreneurship is alive and well on every street conrener of the metroplis of Hong Kong, and as far as I can see sets the benchmark for every other Chinese city where the people keep developing their children as if taht's life's main prpose and at that level government services support every day life like no other space. The Chinese Diapora mindset at least in the 40 years I have had the chnace to observe it is driven by materna conscience, kindness at local level no matter what. Back in 1982, Indonesia had been fascinating as Maya Sutra was about energising the hopes of the poorest muslim mothers even as what was becomingg the supercity of Jakarta depended on Chiense world trade drive
Anyway back to ocrober 2022. My first surprise routing from Dc via snafrancisco and taiwan to HK was the staff of air china were kinder thatn even Singapore airlines at its peak (see my 1995 case study retrospective on that co-produced with BBC - branding the market advantage). I had expected ttranist through Taiwan might had posed covid and other bureaucratic difficulties. Instead it was the smoothest transfer I havever experienced (and I have been through hundres0. Moreover there was an army of women mostly 50plus keeping every nook and cranny of the airport clean. So Tiaawan is acting as superhub for Air China, and when you land in the centre of hong kong city the hustle and busltle of smes working around every days trails to serve the people is specyacular. And so are the bck up egov services in hong kong for minimising the future of covid. What an endl;ess surprise Asia is ; and have any 1/000 of humans done more in progress win-win trading and family development than hong kong. Lets see what day 2 is to bring - so far the local launderette prefers butcoin, there is an aliba minimart which I rather suspect ios an Indian Hong Kong entrepreneurs knowpckoff as he liked the story of Ali baba - old and new. No bother to read this if stories of human spirit are not your cup of tean...
Thank you hong kong and tak you transporation peoples of Chian and Taiwab

Thank you Mitchell - i am interested in debating lessons from hong kong that any 8 million people (approx 1/1000 co-identified human network) can gain from now. 2 questions: is there anyone you suggest I should try to see while I am in hong kong. when back in washington dc could we arrange a zoom with some of our common connections. Being a diaspora scot I really dont understand 2 party politics anywhere and want to get back to uniting younger half around solutions to prevent them being the first extinction generation. Obviously this needs more polite mediation/framing depending on audience . If I am just a 71 year old stalking horse I hope others will pick up constructive ways forward (for 21 years now I have loved the idea of new universsities graviaiated by billion asian rural womens goal1-6 human development that share their sdg alumni rather than branding them as separate elites) especially as web 3 takes over in the next few years (concluding the 40 year future dad at the economist and i first shared in 1984's 2025 report). That is why currently within my known world of human connections with designing DAOs I value www.beingai.com and am tracking many crossroads NY's www.ed3dao.com is at as well as searching youtube for humanistic metaverse festivals- Beingai.com led by jeanne lim exoerience is 3 fold out of hong kong, out of berkeley, out of UN - and is woman kindness led. I would like it to be a benchmark NFT or Dao www.worldclassdaos.com but want to establish a premier league of daos so that people have a choice as to where dao helps them value un digital cooperation even if the Un is currently allowed to talk about celebrating www.sdgmetaverseprize.org and egov but not allowed to talk about crypto or Daos. Whats your most urgent action the world needs to cooperatively map- whether it aligns or varies from my brain's limited understanding of whats last chnaces are at stake for humanity?
