You could call my father Norman (teachforsdgs.com, povertyuni.com 2025report.com. entrepreneurialrevolution.city , economistdiary.com) the Forest Gump of entrepreneurship and borderless knowhow millennials urgently need to action as the worldwide sustainability generation.
By 1976 his Economist surveys of Entrepreneurial Revolution were advocating that places' services and system maps needed to prepare to maximise opportunities for 21st c youth to make the best of 2 experiential learning worlds:
- world class digital networks
- lives matter last mile community network where children and families develop
Father had been blessed with multiple good fortunes to get to 1976 from his birth in a British Embassy in Russia's Konisberg of 1923
he had survived being home schooled in british embassies in some of Europe's moat hateful place notably Stalin's Moscow and places where jews were trying to escape from hitler
he had survived spending his last days as a teenager as navigator allied bomber command burma campaign
in the first 6 years after world war 2 he was mentored by 3 people whose innovations views most mattered to world class joirnalism: john von neumann, sir geoffrey crowther , maynard keynes (NCK).
- From von neumann dad was given the biggest scoop of worldwide journalism. Ask leaders what will they be doing with 100 time smore tech per decade 1950s to 2020s; that a million times "moore" if they are planning 30 years (half the world's population ahead)
- Geoffrey Crowther had edited The Economist's centenary autobiography in 1943. Because of The Economist's' collegiate instead of individualistic viewpoint, Crowther's work isnt simple to reference academically. The 3 sources I use are the common sense of editorials in the economist during his editorship, the 1943 autobiography, a published series of lectures he gave at claremont. Additionally Crowther like all those living up The Economist's 1843 founding would start every economist alumni off by studying Adam Smith (which fortunately for Norman had been the only books he had with him in Burma).
- Keynes ; in the final chapter of the general theory of money , interest and employment keynes asks a most valuable question that he was concerned his final graduate classes honored as alumni of his knowhow- practically speaking next generations opportunities and threats are exponentially locked in by a handful of people- do you see wo these people are and how is transparency/human sustainability brought to the consequences of their decision-,making
Dads wartime experiences put google maps in his head a generation ahead of most other intellectuals and place leaders. He was deeply concerned how world war 2's root cause had become the G* empires (7 white representing about one sixth of the human race's diversity though most of earth north of the tropics. To father permission to sign one annual survey a year from 1962 was a great joy -this came after 15 years of writing about 1000 anonymous editorials published weekly (including only journalist at birth of european union as well as connector of interdependence mindsets which included President Kennedy as well as the 3 aforementioned wizards). Farher's chose as his first survey how the rise of japan offered a model around which the two thirds of humans who are Asians could rise- in 1962 the model was already multiplying win-win trades for people surrounded by east asia shipping lanes - japan s korea taiwan hk and singapore (with notable thanks to 1962 of the peace umbrella and engineering foci that usa had actionable freed these peoples to design). If the united states of asia was to be a lab for post colonial entrepreneurial freedoms as well as the systemic curiousity7 of NCK then the big questions (already voiced by keynes alumni schumacher- how would keynesianism come to rural people - inland on the continent of Asia also all of whom had not had any access to the first 2000 years of machines (ie no electricity or other grids)/By 1977, both China and Bangladesh had found solutions- while different in terms of financial source they replicated similar innovation Societal foci:access to human energy - ie security of food, water. clean air
access to basic health especially infants, children and mothers
Access to livelihood education (community experiential and small enterprise learning) so that villages enjoyed full employment through positive cash flow models
Building (servant leadership) 100000 person lives matter community . (Whilst this may sound a contradiction of rural if you study what went on in bangladesh or tropical rural china from the 1970s you will find this breakthrough in bottom-up governance (which mimics natures' evolutionary rules) is an integral dynamic everyone and everywhere needs to prevent millennials being the extinction generation . more at abedmooc.com
