last best chance to design world where next girl born -or child of any skin color has nature's greatest chance of a good life
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

    the difference is to be found in a purposeful and transparent model that is multiwin including society's need that the business is preventing the greatest risks it sectors experts know most about versus a short-term model where owners are taking from every other stakeholder every quarter
    even more interesting is a partnership network of business models; unfortunately if even one core partner is not sustainable the whole network may collapse on society

     upd 4/4/23 ...  

    as you may know new yorkers are hosting an alternative spring meetings apr 11-12 to world bank  -- is the following a relevant meeting topic- please send in other ideas if you are able to join in for real or by zoom

    37 angels is a brooklyn mainly asian female  investors network formed about 7 years ago- it claims to review at least 2500 startups a year around the criteria (pretrained values) which it inducts prospective investors  or partners in through bootcamps and community assemnloes

    during un launch of sdgs in 2015 somebody told me that ny suburbs were one of few places in us likely to double its under 30s population by 2030 - if thats true then it seems to me that revolution in teens education and in intergenerational investors is much needed for the region let alone if the un is to discover new yorkers with a deeper commitment to sdgs than wall streets esg stuff (please note one of the angels spent 10 years leading deutche bank's esg loans audits)

    so i senf this mail to you as I know you either do a lot of work with inner city community youth or on whether tech can even deeply empower community change- it may be that only parts of angels 37 are integral but is there something here several of us want to take further?

           For some engineers, building 16000 homes at 5 dollars each housing total of 100000 people might have been miracle enough but then abed saw 16000 village mothers and 60000 kids starving or dying of diseases like diarrhea- so he designed microfranchise businesses for women to be the village food security and basic health servants - and two american chinese missioaries said can we swap some of your village micrfranchises (we need oral rehydration) with those in village china;

     and then james grant of unicef said why not replicate your village solutions all across bangladesh, and is there something extra unicef can do for you - abed said can you arrange for the government to vaccinate half of bangadesh while our village networks do the other half. and so a blend of bottom up disater relief and sustainable micrfranchises became the world's largest ngo partnership- and all the while bottom up hunicorns networks had no taxes or traditional top down aid- empowerment is a very different way of nation building- and across the two thirds of humans who are asians - women just did it whereve extreme poverty was ended

    hu01 - resilient community   hu02 oral rehydration -nation wide moters training
    huo3 -last mile hrlth service franchise - one village women weekly door t door 300 homes selling basic non-prescrition drugs and being mothers source of  health news

     Over 40 years at the economist 1948-1988, dad norman macrae, wrote over 3000 leaders at The Economist. of which only 25 were signed - one per year from 1962

    his debates turned the economist into a global viewspaper; there were 2 most popular topics

    entrepreneurial revolution or future history in which norman typically chose to debate the consequences of 40 years of 1000 times more tech per decade -including the loss of human species if we failed to prepare for 2020s as the most exciting and collaborative decade ever- the last one when parents could realistically expect their millennial children rise as the first sustainability generatin

    futures of regions- particularly asia where two thirds of humans live and the continent which was most trapped by the era of colonial empire and the first 185 years of humnas and machines started up in glasgow of 1760s- 

    all of these topics may have unique sinificance n 2021 both with glasgow ghosting cop26 in november- covid having become probably the first warning through which every human being is simultaneously what else ha everyone failed to prep in this 21st c

    20 DEC 2019 DEATH OF SIR FAZLE ABED - Asia's rural health services builder and much more

    1984 for globalisation tech to be a good idea lets bring down costs of vital healthcare worldwide
    I FIRST MET ABED IN DHAKA 11 YEARS AGO; BY THEN HE HAD DONE 40 YEARS OF HARD WORK; as probably the most effective ever public servant in living memory - the first 30 years had focused on people to people networking in villages without electricity- how he and in parallel barefoot medics in humid chinese villages built rural health capacity is as near to a miracle as i will see 

     i am not medically qualified but ever since my father norman macrae's 1984 survey in The Economist on would the west ever turn round from disastrously designed health systems -

     health seems the most urgent search we can all collaborate on as citizens of the smartest age ever- if we dont what will be the point of moores law delivering trillion times more tech by the 2020s than needed in 1960s coding of moon landing
    here is a copy of our story in 1984- huge apologies to abed, barefoot chinese medics and james grant for not knowing how much the east had already grassroot networked -other than dad's 1977 survey on celebrating the rise of the fifth of humans who live on the chinese mainland 

    personal computer networking was conceived around 1984- see eg the famous apple ad, understand gates takeoff with microsoft as a worldwide language, by 1989 berners lee was launching the worldwide web


    stories why 2020s was only going to be the most exciting decade to be alive if eevryone saw themsels as a life long coach and student

    if we could make one wish for eople who spend their lives trying to unite nations (year75 curriculum since nations met operahouse san fran 1945)


    before you try amd communicate17 sustainability goals at a time simplify one goal- humans dont repember 17 dimemnsions- when you look atsilos of experts they often dont match even one goal

    i prefer my father's economic goal to anyone else which he said came to him as a teenger readig adam smith while waiting to naviagte airplanes  in world war 2 over modernday bangladesh/myanmar

    sustainbility depends on designing a hyperconnected world in which each  next gorl or boyborn has a fairchmace at a good live and a great livelihood

    just as dads 1984 survey can be read as saying we need enough people everywhere to love each others health gto map health data in ways that big separated corporations nor higly lobbed govermenets never see at community level, everyone needs to be celebrated for waht they can locally coach as well as what they study next 

    health and education generate strong economies across generation not voice versa - as gov cuoo of new york values new yorkers be both tough and loving- we need to stop saying a few people are qualified teachers and hearl-connectirs=we all have to be if digital world is to be sustainable- this is what the worldrecordjobs.com; search your favorite- if she or he isnt there i - chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk - would love to know so we can linkin the solutions kids and tecahers need to communalize

    larry brilliants story begins in the afghan hills of early 1960s-

    in those days even in those most isolated village regions wuth no electricity grids or running water, people were gossiping - if americans can land people on the moon soon no mission will be impossible back on earth

    larry was a relatively poor white youth in detroit when one day he popped into a teacging hospital feeling giddy- it had been very hot and probably he had become dehydrated by bicycling for too long- instead of curing him for free, the admissions officer akso offerered a virtually free way for larry to gtrain as a doctor


    provided he gave back with his knowhow- larry had found himself in afghanistan as his first employer warner borothers told him to accompany their boy band wavy gravy on a year long worldwide tour- which had just ended with the band recuperating with their favorite consciousness guru- so what did larry do next- he became america's number 1 expert in infectious diseases in asia- he was the man who ended the last case of smallpox on the continent- in those days you had to track and trace manually- larry contributed to some other miracles; eg he joined a network who aimed to end uneccsary blindness by making cataract operations affordable even if you lived in the least conected vilage on the aisna continent-

    lets fast forward it was about 2005- a time when tedx conferences promised a prize to the speakers with the most exciting colaboration challenge; the prize was not money it was asking every member of tedx to linkin if they could help with thelaureate's chalenge- larry wanted to mobilise tracing maps to end infectious diseases- you may remember that while sevral sad thongs hapened on presdient bush watch- he too led the 2005 challenge to save the world from infectious diuseases


    Pres. George W. Bush in 2005: "If we wait for a pandemic to appear, it will be too late to prepare." "A pandemic is a lot like a forest ...

    google invited larry to be the head of google.org- what happened  from 2006 on is very confusing- google was to open source the android mobile operating system ; it knew before anyone other hugely fianced network that how big data became mapped as huan behavior tracked through mobile gps could be make or break to worldiwde human goals; but politicians had not been watching what big banks and their fake fratings agencies were up to- so the world enetered years of subprime fimacial crises instead of an era of smart design of health data; by 2019 larry was in his 80s;-it is apparntly a fact that trump dismantled infectious disease prevention networks as not providing a quick retorn on wall street - lok at what happened in dec 2019- taiwan by no menas happily related to beijing sent its top infectious disease expert to beijing- reported the big [problem is this is a disease where the vast majoority of youth it ifects are symptomless- close our bordres - this is what natiosn did who had transparently samrt infectioys disease experts- those who didnt do this in time but located in the far east had been practicsing track and trace for 17 yeras due to the saars outbreak; whence smart nations contain the virus by making sure blood tests cost less than 5 dollars per person and can be scaled as easily as buying a coca-cola in usa (the brand that invented service within arms reach of desire before usa had interstate rioads)

    some of the above may be  disputed- honestly i am  not the slightest bit interested in which politician in usa was on the peopels side against the virus- it is clear the total suystem failed usa but if the lifelong learning of larry brillains had been know k-12 - eg kindergarters how to wash your hands-  we could have celebrated peer to  peer adolescent health as one of the most valuable curricula of 21st c education something the lancet has been at the epicentre of demanding for a decade now 


     when i was 9 years old a classmate was michael attenborough the some of actor/producer lotrd richard attenborough and the nephew of dadid attenborough= all of the attenborough family are fasciknagtimg to wiki[edia with to understand how for example richard bename obsessed wth gandhi and davuid became the smartest world service broadcastre i have ever seen. david's life chnaging learning moment did nit happen in school - it came when he attended a talk by a guy who committed his life to saving badgers from urbasiation. so it was that david became from theera lof black and white televisoion onwards the storyteeler of animals and natire like no other. i caught up with the head of gthe bbc studio reponsible for attennborough's work in geneva at an uncrad debate on how could trade help with great thornberg generations climate survival goals. over a billion aisna had eidted a 60 second extract of davids blie planet 2 where fish were cholking om plastic. that one minute viral moment did more for the movement of transfirm beyond live domintaed by plastic and other carbon-ruled value chains than all other research and teaching to date. there isa huge amount to learn from having enough tv media owned by the public that even when a program is entretaining enough to briadcast to billions - ome miniute of its can be mobilised as a viral story that youth app to chnage tghe world- why not spend one hour a week of every schoolchilds live searching for what issues to viralise- actually one cluster of schools in new zealand read our 1984 book and createdwww.thelearningweb.net - every child  of that schooling sytem is trained to be frree to debate stories they want to invetsigatively journalise; in that district of new zealnd the school went on the radio during the winter break- whats the  next billion bopar industry didgital new zealad needs to bfring to the world because west coast amerucans never will in time; thats not because we are smarter than americans but we do have a diferent part of the paegt's diversoty and connectiveity to celebate with a world of education - if milennials ar to be the first sustainability generation when it comes to loving each others peoples, i takes courage to reflect on what hapen to a,erican peoples; i wouldnt exist without the way americans twice save europe and asia from world wars- but having iknvented the idea of assigning 50000 youngish brains to a great goal like moon landing- why didnt american elders value youth enough to mobilse youth around any great gols on mother earth? there may be many reasons if you are free to braiknstorm them with a diverse enough group of people- looking with a 12 year olds eyes out of london , kit doesnt seem to me that americans have ever been deeply served by their ;politicians since the death of jf kennedy. But i also realised increasingly after the birth of my daughter in wsshington dc region in 1997 that ter is a total failure of intehfration bith by skin color, faith, and date i say it woman and man. I do not have enough ime in live to argue with educatirs and others whose job paid by government is to argue its nit that bad. what i want to do is help communities look for solutions- we know fpr example how to build dual langiage k-12 education system; i dont think we yet know how to build schools for 2 diferent skins unless we can do that through langiages. Itonically because of the american constitution you cant begin to build dual faith schools. whether its is possible to build dual sex schools in usa where girls feel as safe as boys is something i doubt but hope to be shown i simply havent searched in the right place in usa yet- my maternal grandfrather's sir ken  last job 1945 was to write up the legalese of india's indpendence- after 3 generations of scottish missionaries in mjumbi who had started up pharmacy (kep's corner) and nursed in ways florence had inspired- sir ken's view of 25 yeras in mumbai mediating gandhi was NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE- those were his last words to me as he Died when i was 5 - so if its possible to design schools for gils and boys it would be fitting if some poorest part of the asian continent adadpted what gandhi and montessori had pioneered sa vocational education- in sny event that would be why dad would vote for sir fazle abed as the most exciting collabortaion movement in valuing education and gorls lives and health and saety wholly - who do you vote for as frineds in veinna design the hapinest civically engaged curricula children and etachers have ever been free to co-create ? chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

    Changing education

    There has been a sea-change in the traditional ages on man. Compared with 1974 our children in 2024 generally go out to paid work (especially computer programming work) much earlier, maybe starting at nine, maybe at twelve, and we do not exploit them. But young adults of twenty-three to forty-five stay at home to play much more than in 1974; it is quite usual today for one parent (probably now generally the father, although sometimes the mother) to stay at home during the period when young children are growing up. And today adults of forty-three to ninety-three go back to school - via computerised learning - much more than they did in 1974.

    In most of the rich countries in 2024 children are not allowed to leave school until they pass their Preliminary Exam. About 5 per cent of American children passed their exam last year before their eight birthday, but the median age for passing it in 2024 is ten-and-a-half, and remedial education is generally needed if a child has not passed it by the age of fifteen.

    A child who passes his Prelim can decide whether to tale a job at once, and take up the remainder of his twelve years of free schooling later; or he can pass on to secondary schooling forthwith, and start to study for his Higher Diploma.

    The mode of learning for the under-twelves is nowadays generally computer-generated. The child sits at home or with a group of friends or (more rarely) in an actual, traditional school building. She or he will be in touch with a computer program that has discovered , during a preliminary assessment, her or his individual learning pattern. The computer will decide what next questions to ask or task to set after each response from each child.

    A school teacher assessor, who may live half a world away, will generally have been hired, via the voucher system by the family for each individual child. A good assessor will probably have vouchers to monitor the progress of twenty-five individual children, although some parents prefer to employ groups of assessors - one following the child's progress in emotional balance, one in mathematics, one in civilized living, and so on - and these groups band together in telecommuting schools.

     rural keynsianism - by 1962 my father had acived his own biggest goal making peace wuth his 2 biggest wartime enemies - germans and japanese- daad was the only journalsit at messiona where the borth of the eu was conceived; dad was the fifrst english sdpeaking journalist to celebrate in 1962 not inly tghe frise of japan but how to systems solutions americans had taught the jkapenasese in gthe 1950s could now chage tghe l.kives of all asian- that's two thords of humanit could gainn from most urgent vilage solutions - eg borlaugs risc sceice could end starvation, and smarter engineers could change infrastructure-ijn gthe 1960s japan shared win-win engineering with all the kislands of the east asian coaastaal belt - Taiwan hong kong singapore - as well as the american freed part of the korean ;penisular. REally great news started up in 1968 if you knew where tgo monitor it. The Chiense had found out that mao's purcase of nuclear technolgy from rusia had been at the expense of 50 million dying of starrvation. From that moment russian style communism was the last system the world's biggets population- one fifth of humanity- wanted. The cultural revolution may have seemd very brutal as it ridded intellectual theorists with two huge movemengt- women vilagers were told they must build half of china by finding vilage solutions wuth other conteetal asians; meanwhile china sent out nevoys to usa, germany, japn- who will teach loutr blooys world class engineering. Why japan agteed and usa/germany failed to join in is hotly disputed. You have to gpo back and sdee who linked in with whom to start the most amzing human development story ever seen - from 1970 china with probably 95% in subsisyence poverty with no access to the first 2010 years of glasgow u's marjets and machines started 1760 to the only nation with the wherewithal to humanise big data on all sustainability collapisig foirnts should youth and teachers in you country be free to zoom and vipkid now. here's normanmacade's story on how to invetsigate china and asia apcific riosing reported in teh economist in 1977- and here's the evil as well as happy reactions to this story.

     keynes last chapter general theory of money, interest and employment- increasing economists rule the world locking in expoentially what a place's pepple can spend their lives producing-this will put youth- sustaiability of next generations at ever greater risk unless---

    we search out economsts who value youth without borders

    for those who wish to explore this conern its simplest to begin with adam smith - he was a systems connector of nature language cultyres newtonial maths faiths or morals of community arkets- then he saw his co-worker at glasgow u james watt invent engines - to decide if you need to study more of smith here are his top 10 concerns

    he liked community markets where costs and quality were so transparent that it was in everyone's interest to multiply trust

    he disliked what lodon had done betwe 1500-1760 - in taking over much of asia london had built the biggest warships, it had used slaved trde and colonised other peoples places, it had dictated what curencies could be used -smth wanted machines to improve the human lot the world over- he looked west to usa- he implored brits to propse a united states of english speaking world- the capital parliament should be on usa east coast but there was one proviso-end slavery and racism shouldnt just be a law- the north should support change of business models in south in plantations and othersectors which relied on cheap labor- imagine how different the world would have been if smiths idea agented by irish and scots in boston and united east coast states and britain then south east states then southers states louisana purchase up thrugh th heartland to the great lakes and then in every innovation west coast states were to bring as they increasingly understood that two thirds of the worlds people linked in asia pacific, while the old world of transatlantic nations represented about 15%

    7 Economies - Goal : to have one pager reading lists on 7 distinctive economies by cop26 glasgow late november so adam smith scholars and indeed the future of europe and the world  under 46th president can be mediated- great if people like bbc's david attenborough could join in too

    to include brac and glasgow universities as two of the 7 sdg scholars hubs at least where women hold up half the sky and green digital finance leapfrogs peacefully ahead of carbon consumption

    No matter: if 7 becomes larger and where i use the word economy i am talking about whatever system-mapping design keynes talked about in last chapter of general theory of  money interest employment - overarching systems which increasingly rule the world by exponentially locking in the life-possibilities of places' next generations
    - this isn't the professional terminology that 90 days mass media macroeconomists talk about  nor pr lobbyists etc use to adjudicate their supreme leaders -it isnt freedom of markets the way any scot with a mission reads adam smith

    roughly speaking the 7th economic model is the one that is needed if nations are urgently to be united around sdgs -orbiting at least in good enough directions by 2030- the other 6 have discrete case studies from history/herstory though of course their valuation needs win-wins: to interface and the 7th economy needs to converge them for every community-they are also  crashing into 2020s which by moores law in particular senses offers us trillion times more tech than app's to race to the moon in te 1960s

    I am delighted if people change the names of these economies- roughly these are names "anonymously" evident in the first 150 years of The Economist 1843-1993 Published since September 1843 to take part in “a severe contest between intelligence, which presses forward, and an unworthy, timid ignorance obstructing our progress.”

    1 pound economy - british empire colonisation of old world eventually by 2 islands uk and japan - root cause of world wars

    2 dollar (first continent-wide) economy - usa- saved the old world from 2 world wars- at foundation of un in 1945 core to plan of rebooting G7 (outlasting stalin's russia 8th empire) inventing futures of 200 nations especially the majority of people living on asia continent most of whom even at time of moon landing had no access to electricity grids/infrastructure

    models 3-6 seem to be based on 4 extraordinary post war innovations planted in 1950s
    3 of deming which vogel book japan as number 1 explains- as did deng's desire to build china's first capitalism around engineers not administrators as place leaders

    4 of borlaug - the core crop science of rural keynesianism- making communities self sufficient on food round village women holding up half the sly linked to barefoot medic models - eg james grant/brac- its simplest to call this the deepest knowledge of brac university though interestingly it was the other of the 2 models with deming model that china first used to go beyond zero private companies- a difference between bangladesh and china is bangladesh depended on aid being transformed around rural capitalism while by 1976 inward investment into china by diaspora chinese turned deming model from japan island of taiwan hk singapore, peninsular s korea - into continental scale from which asia's two thirds of human species could potentially gain happiness and freedom - rising suns everywhere?

    5 is computing/digital model started by eg von neumann and moore's law 1965 (branded silicon valley from 1972) and maybe commercialised by bezos and jack ma from 1995- my father argued this should be designed around small enterprise and open education networking as did von neumann - so i do not feel we have yet searched out this model in a fit way- see also biography of von neumann particularly liis lectures on language/brain science bequested to yale

    6 model  is probably even more off course - its everything to do with space, satellite telecoms, death of distance by and for the peoples sharing of life saving apps- its not space wars of big governments- it needs to ground big data small in community governed platforms- some say that half of all human data has been collected since mobile gps etc- and that this depends on how the tipping points of AI*5G*IOT*blockchain make the 2020s the most exciting decade to be alive 

    as you can see models 5.6 are disputed locally and globally but if we are ever to go green beyond carbon and to value sdgs - we will need to celebrate youth mapping of exponential intangibles valuation models we dont yet have as well as what nye calls coalitions beyond borders 
    -it seems to me preparing how to map this is what needs readying by nov 2020

    oddly the two then young men who inherited my fathers work at the economist now include john micklethwait now editing bloombergs business news and launching bloomberg green yesterday at the world economic forum - people like soros and gorbachev did try and prepare way from my dad's 1984 book to bringing russia in from the cold but clearly that didnt work- nonetheless positive drone economies are needed to green agriculture, blue water and  for large iced up lands and may yet be what determines whether the arctic circle is transformed back to sustainability

    a far deeper cultural dialogue than i am capable of is needed to improve on all of the above - i think cultural belt road mapping is needed as much from south to north as east to west and needs to eg celebrate the arts like bostons silk road ensemble- I see new scholarships like schwarzman's being a youthful space to unite cultures as well as sustainability capitalism mapping

    question 1 vincent ezra is this worth discussing in boston
    question 2 anyone else? - where can we discuss this -eg trying to find how to debate this across adam smith scholars and maybe scholars of fazle abed and smit can launch this as adamsmith.app or whomever you see as questioning the 260 ear future since 1760 of makjets and engines the way alumni of glasgow U's smith and watt tried to identify including sir fazle's 200th yer review which he took from glasgow u of the 1950s to shell oil of the 1960s and then 50 years of village women networking

    my father norman macrae explored the future of asian  capitalism in  east between 1962 consider japan and 1977 consider china-this review of consider 2 billion people summarises: 

    .Donald S. Zagoria  review "TWO BILLION PEOPLE: A SURVEY OF ASIA." By Norman Macrae. London: The Economist, May 7, 1977. The deputy editor of The Economist has written a stunning tour de force on Asian economic development. Its major theme is that, in the past decade and a half, after many centuries during which the real problem of poverty in Asia has been rural underemployment, two different sorts of societies have begun to break through to creating full employment in the countryside. One of them is communist China, which has been following a policy which Macrae calls "rural Keynesianism." The others are "capitalist roaders" such as South Korea and Taiwan, following the trail blazed by Japan. On the mostly authoritarian governments in Asia, Macrae has some heretical conclusions that will pain Western liberals and conservatives alike. Of the 16 non-communist governments in the area, he says, there are only two for which he could in no circumstance vote. Of the seven communist countries in the area, only two have a really rotten ruling system. Most Asian leaders, opines Macrae, are in politics because they have a genuine desire to see their peoples advance in income and happiness. Although such a broad scope and such sweeping conclusions may bring upon him scholarly wrath, Macrae has done what desperately needed to be done ?to look upon East Asia as a whole, to identify the major problems and the most successful responses, and to put it all into an historical and cultural framework. No one could fail to profit from this essay

    More specifically dad's 1977 Economist  survey of china recordedThe Chinese say that they have made education to 17 universal in their cities and claim they will advance to full education for rural 17 year olds in the 980s now that the dramatic drop in birth rate is allowing teachers ti switch from primary schools to secondary. Every aspect of world economics and politics will be transformed if these educated new chinese in the 1990s attain a level of productivity and income even approximately in accord with their ability, and hell knows what will happen if they don't

    Father's 1976 survey of future capitalism (dubbed Entrepreneurial Revolution and later Intrapreneur) had explained his hypothesis that the future needed to replace big organisations by small enterprises

    Dad's work was subjected to hatred in us congress 1978 -  
    Apr 20, 1978 - Macrae, deputy editor of The Economist, call'> China's present-day rural Keynesianism are expressions of that compulsion. Washington and ...

    nonetheless he stood his ground

    Macrae, N. (1977). China on Its Way to Becoming Japan, via Sweden. Worldview, 20(5), 19-20. doi:10.1017/S008425590002341Xwww.cambridge.org/core/journals/worldview/article/china-on-its-way-to-becoming-japan-via-sweden/F6BBA5F190595DCFE73A7E98EFC09682

    As a journalist whose job it is to check facts against politicians' promises and public servants' continuing prejudices, I doubt whether modern history is moved much by slogans. Interdependence versus self-reliance, the supposed conflicts of the Chinese Way (egalitarianism, autarchy, underconsumption) versus the Japanese Way (growth, trade, investment)— all give way, I suspect, to changing precepts that bring successes.
