.
my father norman and lifelong journalist at the economist was last journalist to interview von neumann- whose biography of industrial revolutions IR3 and IR4 he later wrote- our core belief :

we 7.5 human beings have all the tech and abundance of nature to design good life opportunities for all if we unite/collaborate in doing so

BUT unlike IR1 sharing machine energy which rolled out slowly and partially, IR2-4 completely changed human potential in under a generation; we made a mess of ir2 communications tech, and the UN was born to resolve, and by 1957's death of von neumann kennedy and others were uniting the world in hope of soon no mission impossible
round any dynamics unique to human being

.transparency questions we seek to mediate in 21-22 our 37th year of updating 2025 report's countdown to sustainability generations-
  • what is the most entrepreneurial way teachers need to explore 4 industrial revolutions if today's younger half of the world especially poorest or colored halves are to celebrate their communal contributions to sustainability?
  • can leaders of entrepreneurial revolution learn systematically from what chances have we so far missed between 2021 and 1945 and 1760 when the machine age started to be webbed around the world out of Glasgow University thanks to brothers James and Adam ie through systems connecting alumni of engineering and social-economic mapmaking

    Friday, December 31, 1971

     

     welcome to miracles of human development - in silicon valley they celebrate startup networks which exit after creating a billion dollars of networking worth- we propose hunicorns 100 are massively more exciting- they map grassroots networking around purposeful-solutions such as ending famine that everyone involved wants to share and continue developing- to my scottish diaspora friends this search is also very personal- the age of humans and machines started at glagow university in 1760s; instead of the benefits of machines being shared equally all over the world , clearly by 1945 end of world war 2 and birth of united nations- the sahring had been very unevens- amongst the larest ethnicity asians about 65% of humans hardly any had been linked in to electricity grids or other machine-essential infrastructure

     my own diaries on the search for networks start in 1984 with the 2025 report but my specific   search for hunicorns only began in 2007 with my first visit to bangladesh-  dhaka xmas2007 -soon our family foundation helped 2000 youth get free copies of social business books; 

    personally i was excited to realise that my diaries connected with my father norman macrae's from the economist- as early as 1962 he discovered japan had found solutions to human development that all 65% of the world -asians - might want to study - within a week of publishing consider japan- president kennedy seconded the view that there was a lot to learn; the model of the 1962 survey was soon connecting infrastructure of sme value chain win-wins down the far east coast and sepercitis -eg tokyo, seoul where over 25 million people grow safely with each other as well as celebrate high quality rural connections - specifically the 60s coastal belt linked in south korea, taiwan, hong kong, singapore- it doesnt matter what we call this model though some simply described it as coastal belt capitalists- in 1977 my fathers asian surveys had discovered an even more exciting model rural keynesianism -together these 2 models could empower asia's poorest billion women to end extreme poverty

    after 15 years - i realise in 2021 that the dozens of young journalists who also joined our family on trips to dhaka have helped their generation search hunicorns - unlike silicon valley these never exit their purpose - in jim kims franciscan terminology they pop tech partnership - prefentisl option poor - leapfroging- so if you are villager without electricity grids you do far more economically with solar- and if you never had a landphone as a billion chinese and bangladeshis never did- you design mote life saving collaborations than if telecoms seems to be a yuppie toy or old hat

    of most interest to me personally in 2020s are hunicorns hu1 and hu100 empowered by billion pooest asian women

    although these started in east pakistan 1970 reborn as bangladesh 1971- i have only been traveling to dhaka since 2007 so please help me filling the gaps


    hu1 began as partnership with what 100000 poorest bangladesh refugees wanted to develop starting with 16000 homes at cost of $5 per home-  having kept village men busy building the homes and resilient community infrastucture 16000 village mothers asked fazle abed how coulf they play an equal part in resilient community building - the solutions and partnerships they found turned out to be needed in rural nation building across bangladesh and much of china's humid continent- so hu1 partners include 1 billion pootrest village womne, the royal families of uk, japan and netherlands; james grant as first chief partner in health followed 20 years later by bill gates jim kim and georg soros; 

    hu2 back in early 1970s the nations cholera lab invented oral rehydration which the chinese needed and swapped with theit barefoot medic networks; 

    all of the continent needed borlaugs hu3  rice and other crop science which japan had been asian leader of since the 1950s building a philippines and bangladesh irri network- so effectively anyone who sustined partnership with sir fazle abed connected hu1; 

    from 2011 sir fazle abed asked japanese and chinese ambassadors to start his legacy hunicorn hu100 - a collaboration of new university alumni - as well as most asian ambassadors- soros asked his university partners starting with central euro and brad new york to linkin

    much more coming soon- if you can help map a hunicorn in transparent and one detail we need you urgently in 2021 rsvp chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk ecop26.com- on the roads to and from abed's alma mater glasgow u cop 26; on transparency of AI VACCINE MAPS the world 2020s vaccination platforms - hu98

    ---back during the first decade of abed-brac action learning curves empowering billion women to end poverty in their communities

    hu4 started by abed and james grant circa 1980- in parallel in india led by larry brilliant; 

    today hu98 likely to depend on how india scales astra zeneca, and who uses chinas vaccines- of course if everyone used taiwans apps we might not have relied on annual vaccinations as best shot at surviving viruses; if you find news that any vaccine lasts many years - well we imagine gates notes will tell you

    ===================

    more general diary notes on the birth of the 8th most populous nation where life has been on the balance every day since birth of the nation:

    60 years from 1970 have witnessed the greatest human development miracle ever and may yet spiral the greatest human disaster

     

    The miracle I refer to is solution to schumacher’s keynian challenge – ending poverty is mainly a challenge of developing millions of villages

    This miracle was due to extraordinary hard work and collaboration by the world’s billion poorest mothers

     

    In this context , village refers to a big continemts inland community with no access to electricity grids

    Even as https://aiforgood.itu.int/united-nations/wfp/was racing to the moon a majority of humans especially on the continent of asia where two thirds of people live still had no access to electricity grid; in turn this meant communications networks were wholly person to person or via printed documents which most villagers could not read

    The simplest way to understand this human development miracle is to chronicle solutions scaled through each decade 1970 1980 1990 2000 2010

    While the knowledge came initially from America via japan and other far east islands; Bangladesh became the deepest end poverty partnership lab. 1970 had started badly in the region with 3 by one million-killing events

    The most local cyclone ever

    Civilian/refugee dislocation during war of indepence of banglash

    A famine that killed a million people

    Curriculm 1 - Before we start this tour we should say that while Bangladesh was the 9th most populous nation, village mothers of southern china were an even bigger population. Both invented and shared with each other solutions to ending extreme poverty; both changed local rural cultures from women are for breeding children to women’s productivity is even more relevant to nation building than men. Both had to overcome tropical climates posing infants and mothers killer diseases that much of the rest of the world had long since defeated or so it seemed. Even though village mothers in both countries worked equally hard- china was soon to see huge inward investment from what was becoming the third wealthiest financial network- the diaspora Chinese. Bangladesh had no such advantage – its diapora did help with large remittance flows but they had no trading wealth. The bay of Bengal had gone from the busies world trade bay in asia to middle of 19th century to a bay that most interhemisphere shipping bypassed.

     

    How the world got to this stage of inequality in sharing machines is explained by how London (qnd engish language) became the dominant capital over more than 3 centuries from mid 1500s to mod 1800s.

    Curriculum 3Why might 2020s turn out to be human development’s  terminaly disatrus decade

    to understand each decade of miracles from the viewpoint of the poorest but biggest parenting network -asoan village women, you need to check in with what your family ree observed locally from any of these historic periods

    0-1500 before old world discovered new world

    1500-1760 before humans discovered machines

    1760-1945  before humans gave birth to united nations as an opportunity to transform beyond world wars as the compound consequence of mercantile industrial empires not valuing most lives as mattering

    1945-1970 where new technologues seemed to offer hope- eg if man could land on moon would any mission on earth be impossible?

    in assessing what your family brings to human development learning curves, if you only speak english or a western language you need to ask what does my cultural world have difficulty in seeing that asians as two thirds of the world may see another way round

    the strange story of scots and irish- one of the simplest ways of exploring asians sustainability needs is to ask what if anything did the rise of the british empire 1500-1875 change where you lived - scots/irish have one insight as they were colonised by london from early 1700s, and it was into this conext that adam smith wrote 2 books- attemping to map the world before machines -1758 moral setiments; the world wherever machines reshaped nations; the first lifelong diary from an asian viewpoint is gandhi's ; born 1869 near the most westerly coastline of today's map of india, he traveled to london spending his last days as a teenager as a first year student at the bar of london- he was trying to learn what no college in india could teach; it took another 18 years of lifes experience to realise that british empire laws were the cause not the solution of all his peoples poverty traps; he spent the secong half of his life doing 3 things: reinventing education in india from the ground up round skills learning with montessori wherever opposite to being examined on thee being only one correct theory; he used his fame built from 3 hemispheres of engaging peoples - india, south africa, britain to argue for changing the very rules of justice; he created the movements that made britain who had become the biggest financial loser of world war rush into legaslating the independence of the indian sub continent; 

    if understanding how tp free peoples by changing legal constitutions and how childrens time is spent were lessons gandhi alumni help the human race understand, fazle abeds travels 70 years laer as a teenager from the far east corner of the old british empire in india  to study engineering glasgow turned out to be inteegral economically and for deepest innovations in human development 

    if gandgi and abed make core guides to advancing lives of the quarter of people born on the indian subcontibent; it seems vital to understand emergent human freedoms at least two other asian stories of going beyond world wars were vital from 1945-1960; the far east inslands eg japan taiwan hk, singapore to which the south korean penisular was also positioned to leap forward thanks to american support 1950-3 ; the desires of the chinese people from the time of moon landing- from that moment on this fifth of the worlds population wanted to come out to the world closed to them for over a century due to british empires opium war of 1860, and to be free of the dismal paradigm tha stain's russia had been trying to force on its biggest neighbor

    its in this melting pot that a billion asian mothers 1970 to 2020 innovaed the greatest miracle of partnering sustaind human development -oe that goes so deep in loving last mile community service that it offers something for every community building network of the 2020s to be inspired by

    To Be or Not To Be – that is the question -Shakespeare Hamlet Act 3 Scene 1 SDGsU.com[i]

    JFK & MACRAE -J1

    As you can see Irish American President Kennedy liked my Father Scottish Brit's 1962 survey in The Economist of the good news that not only was Japan rising from the ashes of nuclear war but had a win-win economic model around which the whole of Asia could rise. It seemed that the first 5 years of von neumann's legacy was going well:

    JFK kennedy had challenged youth to an amzing goal- land on the moon - if technology could do that what might each next decade of youth deliver


    an artificial intel lab had been set up on both us coasts - facing the pacific out of stanford and the atlantic  - intel had recieved such a huge order from a japanese calculator company that it invented the prograable chip so as not to be beholden to one clint; and gordon moore had challenged networks around him to increase 100 fold every decade this new kind of engineering power- soon the whole region from santa clara to san francisco had rebranded itself silicon valley- there was a new nrew world to co-create far different from the mess that the first two industrial revolutions had produced through the conflicts of the 7 white empires britain france germany italy russia canada and america

    back in 1962 my father norman macrae was celebratig, in his optimistic manner that he believed journalists must value- the permission to publish one named survey after 15 years sub-editing the economist- he chose japan. As a teenage scot serving in allied bomber command stationed in myanmar, father and so i would not have survived without american help. But father grew up in european embassies where his dad was trying to prevent both stalin and hitler from ever greater media and human abuse. So father thought of wars as systemically spiraled  by historic mistakes- none more than slavemaking as a currency flow of empire (along with opium) which sadly london had accelerated with firstcomers access to smith and watt's engines. By 1939 continental Asians nearly two thirds of human beings had all but been left out of 185 years of access to machines let alone electricity grids; so dad was overjoyed to see japan was scaling solutions -mainly open sourced by american agricultural hero borlaug and engineering hero deming. not just for its peoples growth but potentially all over asia.As you can see jfk thought it would be great to learn from japan but when he was assassinated a year later all sorts of dismal things overwhelmed americans at home with failure to achieve black and white harmony; across nearby latin american borders where ussr an usa raced to sponsor rival ictators none of whom valued their peoples.

    INTRODUCTION  SCOTTISH MINDSETS- AFORE YE GO TO OR FROM GLASGOW COP26

    Although less than a four hundredth of our human race[ii], Scots' like the Irish, enjoy a reputation for being one of the most impudent[iii], collaborative and innovative of peoples. We seek to ask questions other so-called democracies forbid as politically incorrect. For example: what’s wrong with sustainably seeking to unite public servants instead of paying for fake media’s bipolar nationalist parties? 

    Where can innovation networks be audited to exponentially improve the human lot? As of summer 2019, why had 300 trillion dollars of western pension funds not valued any UN sdg networks as asset grade[iv]

    Why was JFK’s moon race 1960s the last time USA trusted 50000 youthful brains to actioning one goal as a network rather than a corporation or a government? If the younger half of the world linkin nearly 4 billion human brains, is it actually beyond our species and artificial intelligence to be celebrating global village survival of our species by 2030?

    Back in 1984, I co-authored The 2025 Report[v] with my father The Economist’s Norman Macrae. We rehearsed the hypothesis - and mapped mathematically likely exponential timelines - that sustainability of our species would depend on transforming education so that children’s natural curiosity flourishes joyfully wherever the next wee lassie or laddie[vi] is born. queries welcome chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

    special dedication Sir Fazle Abed 20 dec 2019 and Duke of Edinburgh 10 april 2021- in 1995 i donated a few days pro bono work to the Duke's award scheme office in Windsor- at that time I didn't realise what an unique role to human sustainability the royals of UK-Netherlands-Japan would play -sorry!  visiTing Bangladesh 15 times from 2007,  sir fazle abed helped me see how ignorant i had been - i hope in some small way to atone by helping publish  the catalogue of 100 human unicorn networks co-created by the billion poorest Asian women  

    Consider today's urgent mismatch - 100 million plus  last mile health assistants desperately sought. A top 100 humanity unicorn and  education solution would revolve around celebrating the innovation of virtually free nursing colleges. Surely there is no reason why any hard working young girl should have to pay to qualify to serve. This is an objective Glasgow’s journal of 21st c Adam Smith scholars[vii] and Glasgow University’s Zasheem Ahmed have assisted South Asian friends with since 2008 when Muhammad Yunus was invited to Glasgow University to give the 250th commemorative talk of Adam Smith’s publication on Moral Sentiments. Furthermore, Britain’s senior medical journal  The Lancet[viii] has been debating a parallel motion for a decade now – why not design education systems which value peer to peer health training pre-adolescence for girls, and separately wherever valued by boys. 

    On the minus side, we are disappointed with loss of youthful purpose at the BBC[ix] – at the margins of expensive entertainment, why not create digital channel with eg khan’s academy? For example, training on how to vaccinate people needs televisual support needs 24/7 fredom of access but not hi-cost production. With smart content, BBC could have virally inspired teachers to smoothly blend real and virtual learning instead of waiting for a pandemic. I can’t believe J Logey Baird[x] saw the sole purpose of tv as commercial entertainment, nor as instrument of politics. Please note from birth, the BBC was invested in by the peoples of Britain who paid the licence fee. By failing to represent people separately from government the BBC has done a worldwide dis-service. With www Tim Berners Lee, the BBC could have partnered in evolving 21st C English speakers’ antidote to drowning in fake media.

    SDGSU.com : 2021 is the 37th year that our friends  have done at least a small probono survey aimed at discovering problems with demanding that the older half of the world -parents and grandparents - value the younger half of the world’s collaborative[xi] opportunity to be the first sustainability generation

     Bottom line: Why have some countries found it so hard to retrain teachers from standard examiners of industrial revolution’s “consumption is everything” to healthy experiential knowhow blenders/APPS of classroom, virtual and community building apprenticeships?

    OPTIMISTIC RATIONALISM

    Five generations of my family’s number 1 belief : never mediate system problems pessimistically. Those who use government service to big brother over people destroy that nation’s credibility to adance human rights let alone survival of our species.

     Here is a simple idea geared to making truth convenient[xiii] again. We invite you to help optimistically design The GAMES. Check out Worldrecordjobs.com – join in searches for players whose alumni will help celebrate 3 billion new jobs co-created by leaping ahead as technology  converges 4 ways of humanizing machines : energy, satellite-telecoms, two kinds of computing revolutions. The latter have accelerated impacts since the 1950s when Euro-American maths geniuses coordinated by John Von Neumann, and soon to be popularised by JFK’s moon race, started up computational revolutions during the first 12 years of the United Nations?

As communities around the world cheer on each other’s last-mile teachers and health servants in ending covid can we celebrate collaborations[xiv] networked to sustain lives matter everywhere?  If not now, when will there ever be a year more urgent than 2021 for Uniting Nations through every family and community?  Even if a wee bit of impudence is called for in papers like this - and in determinedly valuing youth as our species’ first sustainability generation.

     

    DIASPORA NATIONS AS GLOBAL VILLAGE NETWORKERS

     

    Xglasgow.com EconomistRefugee.com. May I clarify a paradox which applies to Scots and many geographically isolated nations:  80% of us Scots have lived worldwide since the middle of the 19th century.

     

    We became a mainly Diaspora nation seeking to love each others’ peoples partly because we were colonised by London from early 1700s. This was when our nation was bankrupted by a dumb investment in the Panama Canal, which most of our 1700s clans-folk did not even know had happened. Scots at Glasgow U also invented engines in 1760s – the birth of humans and machines. Industrial Revolutions seemed to our first entrepreneurial brothers Smith and Watt- far too big for one small island not to share equally with the rest of the world.

     

    Scots therefore welcome all to Cop26 who want to take on the third and last best chance[xv] to sustain humanity – come ye -or zoom in[xvi] to- Glasgow November 2021. And we welcome the younger half of the world to continuing a relay of leap forward summits mapped at EconomistDiary.com including Asia’s hosting in December 2021 of the 3 most exciting summits education has ever conceived : Dubai’s Rewired[xvii], Qatar’s WISE twinned brilliantly by the first lady of Qatar with WISH[xviii], Hong Kong’s Yidan Prize hosted by TenCent’s former co-founder Charles Yidan[xix].

     

    Economistsports.net: we also want to help celebrate the decade long marathon that edutech wizards like Jack Ma seek to EdTech bring to 2020s Olympics[xx] and the late great Kobe Bryant aimed to turn into exciting goals wherever lives matter to communities. In valuing sustainable developmet: we cherish systems mapped round valuing  goal 3 health and goal 4 education grow economies across generations not vice versa.

     

     

    Humanity’s second best chance of sustaining our species was born with the United Nations in 1945 - a stage in human development which we will revisit as a main focus of this paper.

     

    But first consider, in a bit more detail, the first best chance : valuing exponential opportunity and threats to human development the way Glaswegian Adam Smith journalised around 1760, and another Scottish brother mediated round London’s Royal Societies of the mid 19th century. We pay homage to Diaspora Scot James Wilson who gave birth to The Economist in 1843 as the first media whose editors aimed to celebrate transforming nations around sustainability development goals 1 end poverty, 2 end hunger.

     

    Wilson was purposefully an alumni of his fellow Scot Adam Smith and probably a follower of Frenchman JB Say who had coined the term entrepreneur to debate how to empower the future of a nation that has just taken back productive assets from monopoly rule by all the King’s men.  Those who read Adam Smith[xxi] contextually distinguish between his text Moral Sentiments written before the start of the machine age and his work on nations which became Smith’s pre-occupation once he had seen his Glasgow University co-worker James Watt had started up the age of humans and machines.

     

    Smith thought in terms of systems: man-made markets and their interaction with machines were new systems he was trying to map to constructively interface with nature’s systems as well as local cultural and global health systems. As already mentioned, Scotland was 50 years into being colonised by London. Smith advocated that machines should be shared all over the world and that London capitalists as then epicentre of slave-making empire were not to be trusted to lead this. Indeed, Smith sought to unite Scots and Irish engineers with the United States. His only plea: as machines reached a new state, regional leaders should not just repeal slavery but buy out at a fair price owners of business models depending on slave labour and redesign the business model so that all lives matter. Imagine the consequences of applying the Smithian Proposition. Imagine if everywhere the Louisiana Purchase extended the States had developed along Smith’s lives-matter states of being. Imagine if the far west coast of USA had extended the same values. And next when Americans started sailing west to Hawaii and Japan, what if these inter-hemisphere mapmakers had extended win-win greetings of trade not the colonial empire’s smash and grab?

     

    Smith made one more plea that was way ahead of his time. He sought to rid the world of the Colonial Empire’s system of higher education which he observed at oxford of the 1760s as being designed for the convenience of professors and bureaucratic masters of administration not of valuing youth.[xxii] Smith’s transformation of education was to be designed around empowering life-long learning opportunities- particularly for factory workers – to the extent that their work involves drudgery they most of all need support in artistic and other education geared to enjoying their free time. When Scots share readings of Smith we celebrate that joyful school of economics mapped round valuing all lives matter especially ahead of times of unprecedented innovation,170 years after Smith and 70 years after Wilson you can also read the same argument being made in the last chapter of Keynes – general theory – of employment, money and interest

     

    In turn, Wilson’s success in applying Smithian ideology to mediating transformation was less than his life had hoped for but kept alumni of The Economist one of the globe’s most curious networks at least for its first 150 years. Over its first decade, The Economist went viral among London’s Royal Society of the mid 19th century. Wilson succeeded in repealing The Corn Laws but not before they had contributed to starvation of many in Ireland leading to a hundred and fifty years of troubles with the Irish. Queen Victoria took a shine to the idea of ruling over commonwealth instead of slave-making. She sent Wilson to charter a bank in India aimed at transforming India peoples lives. Wilson died of diarrhea 9 months after reaching Calcutta. Instead of ending British control of Asia the British sailed on to the south China coast where they demanded the Chinese accept opium as a currency for the much desired Chinese teas and silks. The Chinese refused, and their trade with the rest of the world was effectively closed for 110 years confining the once wealthiest and most consciously civilised[xxiii] fifth of the world to poverty[xxiv]. Wilson’s son-in-law Walter Bagehot took on as second editor- he is credited with changing the English constitution towards commonwealth.

     

    We can see how The Economist tried to maintain Wilson’s purpose at the autobiography of its first centenary published in 1943[xxv].To the extent that the root cause of the world wars was the way white empires plus Japan had colonised the world, clearly The Economist still had a lot more to mediate to start its second century of journalism for humanity. Today around the SE borders of the EU it has ever more now questions to air such as how did the med sea become a sea of refugees?

     

    Section 2

    I was asked by Adam Smith scholars and the editor of journal of social business to compile a section on what my father as a follower of Smith and Wilson contributed to the 3rd half century of The Economist 1943-1993.

     

     Norman’s joy of reporting peoples who are freeing themselves from history’s fault-lines has a lot to do with both his father’s and his student days were interrupted by world wars.

     

    His father Duncan Macrae had been doing post-graduate studies at Heidelberg when world war 1 started -as a relatively rare Brit speaking German grandad became a spy for Britain and then a British consular instead of the family business as a Scottish missionary! In Norman’s case after an adolescence spent in places like British embassy in Moscow,  he spent his last days as a teenager as a navigator in allied bomber command stationed in modern-day Myanmar. Norman’s log book diaries have an almost weekly entry – another right old mess today: another young crew failing to return from that day’s mission.

     

    Having the good fortune to survive the war, Norman was determined never to publicly show pessimism on anything else. He saw the systemic challenges of the 1945’s birth on UN like this:

    1)    Unite the leading empires (eg 7 of the G8 with exception of Stalin’s) to reboot their advanced economies

    AND

    2)    Reconcile wherever they- mainly the white race representing 13% of our species= had done damage to colonies or native people- in total about 70% of the world’s population in 1945

    AND

          3) Outlast Stalin

     

     

    .Surviving the war made Norman Macrae optimistic but realistic about the challenges facing the world which he tried to help mediate over the next 40 years through 3000 anonymous Economist articles (in line with the paper’s collegiate culture) and 30 named surveys- Typically one Norman Macrae[xxvi] survey per year from 1962. His start as a temporary intern at The Economist in 1949 was good timing- he had enough breathing space as a still young curious man to have enjoyed being in Cambridge’s last class mentored by Keynes in Cambridge and doing enough research to launch 2 definitive practitioner books London Capital Market, Sunshades in October[xxvii]

     

    His experience of an itinerant childhood as the son of a British Embassy man assigned to projects collecting intel on the evils of Hitler and Stalin, Norman never made the assumption that worlds biggest organisations were good ones. Purposeful gets more purposeful is good; big gets bigger isn’t the way nature’s evolutionary systems work. Like Peter Drucker , Norman chronicled hundreds of cases on how managing big organisations was less entrepreneurially beneficial for the human lot than small medium enterprises or community-deep service franchises.

     

    At his 1950s desk at The Economist Norman relentlessly debated how to escape the Orwellian big brother scenario that  the human race  -its constitutions and political strategy got stuck in the first two eras of Adam smith machine revolutions From an agricultural age: to that which energetic machines add to human power: To that with machines for telecommunications and space interconnect locally to globally

    Fortunately clues to tech-transformational systems challenges came from an interview with John von Neumann whose legacy Norman later became the biographer of. Thus Norman kept on inter-generating back from the future ideas of humans and machines – how might these bring peace and sustainable generation to

    EUROPE 1955-1962

    Norman was the only journalist at the Messina birth in 1955 of the European Union. You can hear how well he got on from the founding Frenchman Jean Monnet, Italian and German at this video[xxviii]. However any hope that the EU would lead the freedom of former colonies -especially med sea facing - was dashed by the protective common agricultural policy in 1962. Norman never gave up with Europe- for example he celebrated when a young Romano Prodi translated 1976’s Entrepreneurial Revolution into Italian but top-down bureaucratics were in conflict with mapping small-enterprise networks as the way to community-built sustainability. As can indeed be seen by Norman’s 1982 survey of silicon valley[xxix] in the days when it built rather than exited from future-youthful purposes

     

    WHAT ABOUT THE TRIAD : USA & THE 2 pesky island empires

    Norman’s 1962 survey of Japan celebrated breakthroughs exactly opposite to the wall the EU had run into. Japan had found the two American post-War innovations that all of Asia needed most:

    ·          Borlaug’s village agriculture revolution – this offered at least 5 times more rice food security wherever rice is grown in Asian provided Borlaug’s solutions  are microfranchised- ie knowhow adapted how Borlaug alumni recommended the value stayed with the local producer

    ·         Deming improvement in engineering . If you were going to use bullet trans or container shipping or build cities where 25 million people thrive or depend on electronics to calculate, or measure time or to machine tool you needed absolute reliability. For reasons that remain murky, America’s biggest engineering companies didn’t believe in Deming and so Asia got first chance in how industrial revolution’s smart manufacturing bridges to IR2, IR3, IR4. By 1962 when Macrae published his first named survey “consider japan” in the economist this roadster capital model was already spreading in SME just-in-time value chains which South Korea and Taiwan  wanted to join and which traders/financiers in Hong Kong and Singapore were happy to merge into world class trade. When Price Charles saw this happy leap forward at 1964 Olympics he asked Sony CEO  Akio Morita  and  Japan Emperor to inward invest in wales as Japan’s first European entry; sadly the assassination of JFK in 1993 prevented him from uniting USA UK and Japan.

     

    Unexpectedly just as the EU began to stumble,  Macrae’s 1962 survey consider japan went globally viral with JFK writing this review -from then on Norman in his 13th year of sub-editing The Economist was permitted to sign one annual survey

     

    What happened next? As far as I can find out American Intelligence never followed up the idea that Japanese Korean and Chinese diaspora were growing win-win economies. This lost momentum may have been personally due to the sad assassination of Kennedy, but  more systemically it appears that while the world was cheering on Americans right stuff for the space race- USA social fabric was being torn asunder with assassinations of black and white leaders and ever more sensationalist tv media. My diaspora Scottish and Irish friends so wish Kennedy had survived to be off camera at the 1964 Olympics where Prince Charles picked up the baton of east-west reconciliation by asking Sony to come be one of japans first inward investors in Europe in his country wales. This year also started to bridge the 3 old-world empires Britain , Japan and Netherlands whose colonial orbits had most trapped half of all humans (living inland on the continent of Asia) in next to zero modern infrastructure

     

    Norman’s Economist surveys continued mediating how to design a sustainable world celebrating where the biggest youth populations were to be developed - particularly Asia where two thirds of millennials live. Norman sought out Good news stories of Asians escaping the walls of poverty that the British empire’s colonial age had spiraled  . Here’s a review of his survey of Asia 15 years after Kennedy’s appraisal.
