History's curveballs continued: 1945-1760 to new world 1500 to )AD and before

 



the process used not to share engines included slavetrading , genocide, colonisation (designing mainly other peopels coastal belts so that theor natural resources benefits those who organsiaed a few whita capital cities) whilst impoversihing/ ruining locals natural opportunities; as well as fame currencies eg the british proposition to china - opium as a currency or be exclded from world trade for 112 years)

back in 1962 tyhe economist put together a lot of good news :
the sixties wasnt hust teh start of the moon race decade but every decade thanks tp von neumann would bring 100 tiem smore tech to invent with
over in the east 2 asia rising models were evuidenced by japan-korea-taiwan (soon hong kong singapore) 100% fully empoted vilagers (rural keynsiansim) ; supercities designing win-win tarder around small eneterprise supply chains leveraging technology adaptation in ever smarter ways ; there was however a chalenge - to enter the supercity game you needed to value 10 times more efficient ports (eg containiersiation) 10 times more efficient design of traisn (both supercity undergrounds) and unless you were a one city state - bulet trains so that people could commute 100 miles as easily as drive in through an american city's rush hour and suburban sprawl

so while the asia rising models gave the majority of the human race (60%+ are Asiam) the chnace to be included in world trade for teh first time - they offered everywhere entrepreneurial revolution value start up enterprsies and community scaled productivity as well as opportumities to leapfrog ahead of eacg 1g to 5g decade not get socially conflicted in the past; and in turn if tital transformation eg green otr educatioj were needed - that was the pen sourec gifto of valueing youth/families/communities as integral to world trade the way Asia's compiunde development maps around




who's valuing mathematicians who?

dad norman macrae never had time to srudy maths; he was sent to war as a teenager; surviving he chose economics at cambridge because this subject to the extent it existed systemically in 1940s wanst something you did before university; dad doubly lucked out in keynes last classes; then meeting von neumann during first of 4 decades sub-editing the economist; while its fashionable these days to talk about 4 industrial revolutions at the world economic forums 1 davos     2 qatar,, von neumann had his own view of IR3 and IR4

lets assume eveyone agrees from 1760 ir1 started up in glasgow around the power/energy machines could bring beyond what man and horse could do - be that steam trains electricity building cities...previously unless you lived near water and traded through boating almost all life wsa rural; now engines made ,ost of lifes opportunities in cities provided enough infrastructure 

ir2 - communication machines chanfe the world from the telegram to  bells phone to the radio - although bid deals like tv ocean cables, satellite were to come after world war 2 hitler demonstrated how fast propaganda could be used to multiply hate

======================
ir3 was really about what would happen when instead of slide ruler number-maths could be infintely supported by computers; and instead of strategies being typed up one at a time on paper they could be digitally updated; the most valuable assumption was thar 90% of livelihoods would change during ir3 and with 100 times more tech every decade one more revolution would hit humans in the 2020s - our 1984 book the 2025 report timelined how each decade might best or worst change through the eras of 0g to 5g


-there would come a time when 1 dollar computer brains -abundantly cloneable and 5g connectable through every gps on earth - could manage real time data flow- and so replace human government on things that once needed manual control  www.neumann.ning.com
if you'd like to form an alumni club of what neumann  hoped his alumni would sustain please browse ny father's biography in english or japanese and then chat to me chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk 

- we've been reconnecting adam smith scholars for 13 years now at glasgow university but where else is neumann for sustainability valued? at worldrecordjobs and youthmarkets we profile some of the innovators who may have wanted millennials to be the first sdg generation and so prevent extinction- when for example was the last chance decade to go green? or the last chance decade to stop national institutes of health playing with pandemic viruses or poisons like anthrax?

========================================
peviously when was usa the most joyful nation to grow up in?

the rise and fall of america's joy to the world
up to 1500 america unknown to od world
first discovered by italian navigators who'd hired services out to portugal, spain , britain

whilst glasgo university first discovered machines, those in usa soon made most exciting use of machines- thus 5% of people created most weath of carbon industrial age across a continent and saved the old world - its 3 continents and a few islands - from 2 world wars

in trying to unite nations from 1945 - five extraordinary spheres of innovation were liberating world from 1960:
1-2-3 leapt forward around 12 years of work by john von neumann - compuing, space and communicatins, nuclear
4 village solutions-where people had no access to electricity - started with ending hunger- alumni or 5 american borlaug- urgent solutios applying to half the worlds people
valuing enginneers as place leaders and quality jobs - particularly japanese alumni of american deming


while the whole world wasinspired by america's possiblities of the 1960s with the exception of stalin-american seem to have lost joy to the world from the  death of kennedy with all sorts of crises as well as the internal one that equality of lives matter wasn't truly integrated into the american constitution

crises included:
more assassinations of black and white leaders
mass tv started covering bad news nore than good
vietnam became the first unwinnable war
nixon hated youth so much that he stared making college educatin exponentially more costly
russians started sonsring dictators on amerrica's doorstep - cuba and some s american nations
oil became a eason for war gaming

as the world leaps forward from covid can those who are parents around the world love each others children so that 2020s youth become the sustainability generation out of every community


calendar of leap forward summits starting 4th quarter 2021

glasgow nov 6 ivites every connector of sustainability youth - mid saturday cop 26 - 6th november glasgow university union - rsvp via chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

is there a joy to the world event you want the world to linkin ?
