 the 2025 report (first drafted in 1984 but updated with different nationalities until sweden 1993) dbeated how could 10 human nd tech lelment go right or wrong

5 keys - education finance health nature/agriculture 100 female empowered/productive communities crossed disciplines - ultimatley we beleived 100 times more tech chnage per decade needed educators to be the main exploerers with youth (in other words this was how artificial intel could serve millennials as first sdg generation) giving a different celebration of huamn potential than if you assume finance drives everything

as we go forward from covid, question whether we can apat to climate in time, have expereinced 2 yeras of bloending education as a sudden shock instead of 40 yera smooth transition - everything is still to play for wherever educators are trusted to help youth be their own 2020s space racers in a way that kenendy seemed in the last 1950s to challenge teenns of the 1960s but which with his assassination in 1963 we never saw the whole games play out

as we rush into decemeber after month of climate there are at least 3 extraordinary global-local education summits - here are some questions we are asking about one of tehse www.yodanprize.otg whose next world debief out of hong kong is decmber 5

this particular scenesetting of yidan is from the viewpoint of what can the quarter of the people on the india subcintanent connect with yidan and the future of education; we have 11 other parts of the world including br7 usa (I write from washington dc where parents communities and educators could be asking their own uique ways of celebarting under 30s as first sustainability generations thrpugh tehse 2020s)

 3 questions come first to my mind and it would be useful if vicky colbert and you can discuss - 1 i think yidan and all his advisers know most key places education approaches apart from india - so is expecting over next 12 months to linking in education india; 2 the nomination process is specific -someone on your side needs to lead all its elements -eg i recall you can have 3 nominees - one may be whomever wrote up the last version but the other 2 can be "famous" educators who know you or you could get a nominee to be in the voice of your parents and their lifelong contributions eg to unesco and across cultures; 3rd yidan has taken abed's advice by beginning at early childhood you can re-examine the whole of education purpose/bridges between grades in eye of child (human development) and values from age 3 playschools up - they have a lot of psychological experts (of the pro-kid sort not america's who are behoden to lawyers) on need for child to believe in self and teams with other children as well as how to help kids whose minds may be in shock of refugee/ etc; however I havent seen them include literacy as holistically  as a central skill before age of 6; when I say yidan is everywhere his main partner director is at stanford; he is one of china's top 10 tech billionnaires but left for hong kong 2016 for his foundtion to uniquely connect education; he listened to fazle abed - his debriefing of the year's laureates will likely host events out of oxford cambridge harvard over next 12 months ; at his website someone in your team needs to go through 3 lists - the laureates, the lumnaries, thr judges - this will help you see what he already connects and what he maybe most wants to add next 12 months- by the way is there anyone in your team who speaks chinese ; while yidans main relationships are worldwide and in english - I assume he briefs 20 years of edutech relationships inside

 As recently as 1981, 88 percent of the Chinese population was living in extreme poverty; today it is less than one percent. How was this possible?

Never in the history of the world have so many hundreds of millions of people risen from abject poverty to the middle class in such a short time. China’s development shows that rising economic growth – even accompanied by rising inequality – benefits the vast majority of people. Inequality in China has risen, but no one would choose to go back to the time of Mao, when the Chinese were more equal but, above all, poorer.

if you know of leadership webs that permit freedom of speech on letting yoinger half of your nation fried asians and chinese - please say - eg here's 2025's post at the IEA - for decades my father's favorite mini thinktank in UK if not the world; he used to review its annual prize recipients - 

my understanding is iea was first funded/founded by the fisher family who lost a son in world war father served as teen navigating airplanes in allied bomber command stationed in burma;;; it was his hop that humans could be smart enough between 1945 and 2030 to reduce budgets spent on wars- to love next generations ;;; is that too ideal a piurpose for professions to hold?

  Neither economic growth nor sustainability will be possible in any place that minimises the curiosity of the younger half of its population about how this greatest economic miracle ever was achieved and its continuing exponential impacts. Almost two thirds of people are Asian as my father lifelong stories at The Economist sought to integrate beyond the way that until world war 2 mainly white empires had engineered the world.  There is a deep irony that Glasgow has staged both the first and last chance to apply engines to prevent extinction but apparently not one of the 100 most powerful english-speaking decision-makers at Glasgow aligns his reputation to mapping the basic constructs of Adam Smith. Remarkably Smith (175 years ahead of Einstein and Von Neumann) saw man-made market systems as interfacing with nature and health systems - he would fail all those who design global market sector to take over from nature's purposes. Back in 1984 , out book tried to offer the debating constructs needed to include every community in how global tech and local cultural morals were integrated and valued b every teacher & student. Clearly, we did an inadequate job but if there is any residual purpose of the economics profession it should do the maths on why extinction irreversibility kicks in from 2030. But do it believing 20 something graduates have the technology to do this if we make the 2020s earth races as pivotal to youth's belief in human endeavour as 1960s space race.

asia became hub of my professional work from 1983 - first visit Indonesia work with Unilever

 I didnt not know it then but it would be teh forst pover 50 trips to asia from the west mainly paris, london or washington dc

until then :I hadnt fully understood my fathers life time work at teh economiston wanting to see the two thirds of humans who are asian develop; nor that the economists's passion turned to asia when tehpaper's 1843 founder was sent on mission by queen visctoria to calcutta to start a charter bank by and for india's peoples

many updayes from asia are streaming in from adam smoith friends and my year long prep for cop26

here is part of a conversation with a philippine climate fimace banker now in london

Jennifer I looked up the regional female leader who spoke at world bank in 2017 - governor revil  (masbate ) -have you come across her?- basically she seemed to want to create exchanges with young professionals at the world bank particularly agriculture/cattle ;  I don't think she had any particular fintech solutions  - are there any philippines friends of yours in the washington dc region? - under jim yong kim the world bank was fun space to meet asian entrepreneurs; in fact almost his last act was to host the world bank annual meetings in indonesia 2017- i note that g20 comes to indonesia in 2022 ; one of my neighbors is one of the top asian professors at american university-  ;; when it comes to fintech in the past I have often tried to catch up with friends in singapore; also on linkedin I made admittedly (only basic) contact with the lady who chairs world economic forum events on Artificial Intelligence and seems to connect their industrial revolution 4 hub out of san francisco - I try to keep up with everything out of geneva where I believe the tech experts of the United Nations tend to meet - the ITU does a continual series on #aiforgood and its 4 year world planning circle is currently happening over 8 weeks with vietnam  - also guterred headed 3 years reporting on digital faunace which concluded with a good report in 2020 -please say if you wpould like me to dig that out

flowing water and learning

when  2001-i was special interest group editing european union virtual community KM & emotional intelligence  and conintent wide collaoration cirties lculturally/green mediated by barcelona and rome- we formed water angels as the most open netowrk of natures flows; I have ben trying to understand human's corresponding most open elarning network since co-auothpring 2025 repitrt in 1984 - expect some crazy concepts below (until a few become common sense) 

which is sdg generations most transparently linkedin community ----- please tell our co-editors at if you see an even real virtual or blended between now and guterres 2023

for example we are mintoring the 3 months transformation of the next 4 yeasrs of itu digtal world currently beaming down daily fprm vietnam- which are the lesson modules if iyu summits were also a mooc and how do the connect with other new moocs like the worlds laregst ngo partenrship

Is linkedin's withdrawal from china the greatest opportunity for singularity and sdg generation partners? It could be the right time to design a linked in valuing those graduates who aim to humanise ai (eg connectors of networks like #aiforgood run by ITU but part sponsored by singularity) - pilot the community in chiense as linkedin withdraws ; but time when to relink worldwide sustainability and singularity entrepreneurs?

 my dream first debated in 1984 book i co-authored is one day students will own their skills digital dashboards - meanwhile breaking through with refugee learning passports as unicef has promised to advance dubai december seems step in right direction - wonderful if hope and geneva institute have faster way to stack qualifications for service learning graduates/refugee hotspots  etc

Monday, October 11, 2021 started debating millennials goals in 1984- for example we believed that to prevent the rise of fake media the bbc as world service broadcaster would need to time when to blend with digital media in the form of a reality tv show- exactly the opposite of trumps' apprentice we hoped that in year 2000 the debate of the world's biggest risk being discrepancies in incomes and expectation os of rich and poor nations would be the entrepreneurial purpose of mobilising the internet- today we come to a different but related question demonstrating how different freedom of education is from freedom of speech

One thing to know before you participate is that the word's largest school which happens to be in Lucknow India has invented how to end illiteracy within 30 hours of learnee-centric education - details of this extraordinarily happy news can be found at

A debate worthy of education revolution's most testing 18 months (Dec 2021 to Summer break 2023) from the uae expo www.rewired2021 via 2022 to and in 2023 . With hindsight (or foresight in case of friends of 1984's did the UN phrase the new millennium world's first education goal ineffectively? - if it had been 30 hours of nurturing literacy of every child instead of attendance of primary school ,,,sustainability consequences for ending poverty may have been different? Freedom of education is to Adam Smithian Scots a very different worldwide purpose than freedom of speech. Assuming linkedin permits such a debate my articles will try to explain further and with (thanks to Egypt for being 27's relay) map where people can joyfully discuss this - november glasgow & ny, december uae, japan and hong kong and Egypt; where else in 2022 as we peoples do our best with chief navigator Gordon Brown to roll out freedom to vaccinate. As my mentor Fazle Abed once presented to - westerners proved very capable of getting a can of cola within arms reach of desire all over the world, but vaccination less so. Any errors in reporting are mine alone washington dc region & glasgow. Transparency note- since 80% of Scots are Diaspora we know of more diverse forms of early childhood to 5th grade schools. Take my father The Ecconomist's Norman Macrae- he was home schooled while his dad served in the British Embassy in Stalins Moscow. Wherever you are its worth knowing that illiteracy can be cured with 30 hours of learner-centric education. I think it my be terminally sad if artificials are included but not all humans in Sunita's freedom of education. But how say you?

 at 2025 report frineds/alumni of future history (system transformation mapping including 150 years of journalism at the economist and 264 years by moral adam smith (ethics) scholars) aim to map how to help families/communities share solutions locally needed on finance health food jobs-rich education, 100% inclusive/resilient community partnership platforms - we offer this one page catalogue to what a billion women have networked across communities over 50 years to make progress on all deepest sdgs

download one page guide to 36 COLLABs  in remembernace of the greatest entrepreneurial revolutionary thrugh both quarters of the chnage of millenniul FAZLE ABED -play the games of WorldRecordJobs - intel from which 52 players cards do 22-23 graduates need to know existed

whilst these 36 COLLAB platforms seek out long term humanitarian/sd-goal partnerships which villagers turn into family entereprise/positive income microfranchises - empowerment of the world's poorest women out of bangladesh  was surrounded by hostile neighbors (and lack of access to the bay's one world trade superport calcutta) and have had no access to supercity infrastructure; countries like japan and korea south, taiwan various segements of diaspora chinese have since late 1950s multiplied both asia rising models of 100% productive rural life and supercity world trading in areas where 100 times more tech per decade could expand good for  everywhere - (my father wrote extensively on peaceful wsy forward after worldwar 2 at the economist from 1948 until kennedy's death 1963 when usa and eu (common ag policy)n turned inwards; he tried again from 1983 as new tech offered solutions ad did his exact prediction of when the berlin wall would fall; unfortunately his views on that (right or wrong) fort 5 chapters of 2025 report never got an massive outing

while we love to see more peace -or other mass collaborations eg climate, end pandemics , value the younger half of the world's to be the sustainability generation -  spread across the world we dont feel competent apart from identifying a few people we always try to learn from eg romano prodi, several friends in japan;  the late great ezra vogel and before him peter drucker, parts of gordon browns intel around the work especially as it connects to his 2 UN-wide roles on education and vaccination for everyone 

in my life's view (statistics of auditing transparency- this assumes borders of every sort are the most risky locations for evil to gravitate and arms markets to flourish) every conflict needs such a deeply local analysis for families to start resolving that it needs to be done privately - on all other subjects i try to share ideasd as openly as possible- in the event you want to share local conflict resolution views please mark mail conflict or private; i believe in community facilitation tools like harrison owen's practice of peace but this is completely neutral other than valuing families- eg harrison owen naiively assumes that if you invite a 1000 brains to a global village meeting it is possible to find a higher order system for action which moves everyone through conflict barriers simultaneously - this requires cultural and historical reparation between peoples at the deepest levels of consciousness

moore's last chance schools year 21/22

 if you are concerned about last chance schools years - our economistdiary (linkedin version) offers 100 sustainability summits and zooms that samples of teachers and under 30s as sustainability generation need to monitor and interconnect eg with apps!

here are opening details on why gordon moore has for many years been a top 50 pick for world record jobs teachers

#br6 gordon moore

MOORES LAW - a japanese client stimulated american intel to invent programable chips - from 1965 gordon moore promised any alumni around him or silicon valley (branded from 1972  to unite 100 times moore explorers and to live up to stanfords (CA 5th governor's) founding purpose- health of all california kids) would get chance to apply 100 times more chip power every decade until intel of machines in the 2020s when a trillion times moore would probably result in humans turning over governance of real time data platforms streaming in from every gps on earth wherever a human smart device on eg a drone one was beaming in - moore's company intel has gravitated purpose of chip production relentlessly; 

through the 2010s we have seen commercial platforms take over real time ops - eg amazon/bezos almost anything americans want to buy and delivered; facebook anything americans want to chat about- it is not at all clear when commerce data monopoly results in sustainability; many asian countries lead in blending public and commercial ai algorithms -if the worlds under 30s are to be the sustainable generation this ai platforms issue must be made transparent by 2020s- this is not a new need - neumann/moore and other exponential tech innovators alumni have debated it since 1984 at 2025report 

related to moore is john von neumann; in 12 post war years before is death his work fathered computing in ever way- by 1961twin (AI) labs of von neumann alumni were planted at stanford and mit boston - one network wgich debates where ae we in the 2020s is probably the main stimulus for the un taking up responsibility of aifoor good or ai for sustainability - transparency note my father who edited economics for good for 50 years used his first years of not writing weekly leaders to do biography of von neumann published in english and japanese 

Sunday, September 5, 2021

when i 1984 dad (norman macrae of the economist) and I ( published the first report on could humans race sustainably by 2025, we were most concerned with sharing john von neumanns exponential consequences (see bio); never hace 3 generations todays younger half of world, parents and grans faced a trillion times more tech change 1955-2025 but that is neumanns legacy- and it means we need to get tech for eveyonne on life changing markets health, education, finance - father published a companion survey in the economist 1984 -the idea if you dont see better health/safety every decade for all from 1984 the know digital is being falsely designed for most people (eg by a few ever richer men); 

the problem of mediating community challenges like health, education, water and going green is that they would take more tech than fixing finance for all- so if we dont find models making small saving/loans/community enrterprises 10 times less costly by 2000 - again we are going in the wrong direction- in chapter 6 you will see the biggest headline warning of the book- all 7.5 billion beings will be in a terrible mess unless most people afree by 2000 that the biggest risk to humans is discepancies in incomes and expectations of rich and ooor nations and start mobilsing solutions</span><div style="color: black; text-align: left;"><br />while there seemed to be a lot of chat about this millennium goal clearly it was not understood in washington dc or london or any g7 seat of power as evidenced by everything that has so far happeneed in the 21st c bringing us ro 21-22 the last best chance to precent extinction - we gave the tech to solve this - we have experienes of a billion women who have solved this in their communities; are we able to zoom sdgs acyions everywhere or will a very few superpowerful people continue to block humans from uniting<

extinction games - 3rd and final chance - un sdgs decade starting 21-22 glasgow cop 26

1984 prediction why media needed to help unite world around sdgoal 1 by 2000

here is a summary of worldwide end games - if you see anyway of constructively sharing it please mail 

extinction games - glasgow nov 2021 - kerry humanity's last best chance

our first chance to share machines inclusively worldwide began in 1760s when glasgow university's james watt invented engines and smith wrote about moral sentiments of sharing machines equally

instead mainly 7 white empires /slave traded/genocided/colonised other peoples lands ending in world wars -as far as asa goes london was the far the worst; it is estimated  by economists advising gandhi that trade around the quarter of people living on the indian subcontinent was 80% taxed by london over centuries- compound consequences of that trapped most asians in poverty without access to electricity grids

in other words the world up to world war 2 was designed to benefit approximately 15% of peoples of white ethnicity at the expense of over 60% asians abou 13% africans 7% latin americans and 5% others 

1945 saw second lasr chance to end extinction - arguably united nations and human relations up to 1962 but assassinations of kennedy and medgar evers in states seem to have caused us optimism- so wondrous from 1890-1960 - to be replaced by negative media as well as loss of progress on  progressing racial equity- and eu common agriclultural policy ended any chance of progressing development of med sea connected developing nations; as did misperception of strength of ussr- and failure of transparency of aid to former dev countries

in more detail from the far east, japan copied the awful habits of white empires between 1850-1945 but after world war 2 gave back with 2 models around which all asians could rising staring with korea south taiwan, hk, singapore, diaspora chinese - see economist surveys on asia between 1962-1977 at

ps of course the roles of 200 nations interacting have more complexity than this overview but the legacy of john von neumann waa 100 tmes more connectivity/interdependence of peoples every decade from 1960s onwards moon race decade

in our 1984 2025 report- we timelined safest dates for change- eg by 2000 everyone in the world needed to recognise and action the value that mans greatest risk was discrepancies in incomes and expectations between rich and poor nations

download this chapter

what went wrong? 

well 9/11 can be interpreted as there being almost 0 awareness of this risk instead of 100%

somewhere in the 1990s the worldwide web as the smartest way of mediating concerns of people got lost to advertising - when amazon in 1994 started commercial web transactions they drowned out ant chance of knowledge webs sharing top place - could there have been some kind of ways of keeping ad-led webs and life-critical knowhow webs searchable separately; because this wasnt done (nor mobilised when apps could have offered a second chance at segmentation, nor so far segmented when ai offered a final chance) education itself never seriously started using virtual modes until covid shut real modes down - instead of our books plea that educators smoothly experimented with virtual over the 30 years of worldwide web, we humans have very low trust nd love of each other compared with 2020s sustainability needed to be

is there a solution - go look at what a billion poorest asian women have done 1970-2020

2020s - greatest age of unlearning

 i grew up in 1950s london - in that time and place water seemed to be free- there was no cost to how much a home consumed; i am not even sure water was separated from a combined local tax - i do not think water was ever discussed at schools i went to - the text books on geography certainly didnt have anything relevant to interests that suddenly grabbed me 50 years later -r which grap me as a diaspora scot ahead od glasgow nov 2021; i am ashamed to say that even when aged 9 i shared a class with david attenboriughs so i saw no connection between briodcasting on animals lives and the idea that water might become a warground

2001-2005 i volunteered among 20 people to host knowledgeboard across all eu countries- i was supposed to host debates on knowledge and emotional intel- trusting/loving each other across borders aa well as in communities; like many people 9/11 upset me; not least because i was working in london on what 9/11 made an absolutely meaningless project spending d a billion dollars on advertising while my 4 year old daughter was in washington dc- for my sins i have 45 years experience of applying statistis to all sorts of media projects - professional record

at the eu's blended space, i started a sub-club water angels -i wanted to connect both experts in water with those who cared- to make a map of 100 different problems people experience differently on water-at the time a lot of friends were also contributing to a water debate at both soCIAL AND ECONOMIC WORLD FORUMS- I MAY HAVE KNOWN NOTHING ABOUT WATER BUT AT LEAST I THOUGHT I COULD SEARCH WHO'S WHO AND WHY- it seemed to me we could list biggest diffeenccs between countries or even states on what is assumed free and whats very expensive; in the middle east water is vey expensive; moreover though some countries have innovated how to desalinate the ocean if they border it most havent not in any massive way; other ater troubles occur when a big river stars at the top of a mountain but flows through multiple nations ; the moutin nation can play water politcs with wheher ny clean water gets to neigborng countries; conversely if a country is landlocked, unless it has friends nations all the way to the sea it cant effectively jin ij world trDE WHICH IS 90% SHIPPED

Welcome christopher to the World Economic Forum’s weekly Strategic Intelligence update. This week, we're taking a look at Water.

Spotlight on Water

Agriculture and Water Impact

In the next 40 years, the world’s farmers need to produce more food than they managed to produce in the previous 10,000. Efforts to feed a growing and increasingly affluent global population will inevitably result in increasing demand for water and energy - at a time when worsening climate change...
