2017 updates - we will be asking subnetworks of norman macrae foundation's economistiniversity to nominate 2017's new jobs curriculum of the greatest #learinggeneration-

first up the tireless inspiration chinese network QuarterBillionGirls

 Collaboration's Most Valuable Youth Networks from our understanding of China's Declaration of Youth Development Interdependence

what a wonderful Sino-Us treasure trove bob's life's work surrounds us with
can we bounce some ideas on who cpould helpo celebrate who and empower youth and educators to spready joy and jobs around the world?
I have 2 and a half ideas to start bouncing

idea 1 QUE SERA  (Tinnitus Tinnitus)
in beijing and us I work with 3 young female chinese graduates - - a Norman Macrae Foundation Youth Economists Project we naughtily research what will the future of a quarter billion girls (ie china's under 30s women) be from 2030 to 2016; a subnetwork includes bangladeshi girls as the other greatest race united to end poverty thanks to a decade of exploring who empowers who there - a guide to collaboration's best for the world organisations 

joyful urgency
we try to help technologists, educators and spiritual facilitators spread good news actions even to depressed young americans (dare i say many rootcampers )- TRANSITION youth why not retrain trump's administration if we collaborate around good purposes and using the technology that all social investments will be designed round ( Investing in Millennials Goals and Collaboration Networks )  a blockchain of bob would start by openly publishing everyone bob has ever licensed his work to including full contracts, performance achieved or not so that future licensees can connect the dots - we're probably starting a similar ledger of everything elearning satellites have been contracted around ...eventually every student should own their certification not have to get into 100000$ debt to have a bit of paper from a university that isnt even job related anymore. I am confident china will pop this university bubble while i breathe but then i am an optimist 

In the process these three ladies have convinced me that huge spaces for good youth webs in china are:
*tsinghua university that one of them is an alumni as are most of china's leaders (in the case of an outsider like jack ma he has been elected head of the business and tech club of tsinghua)
*the yale inspired serve china villages which 500 smartest chinese graduates are spending a year linking in what they observe around village elders and what new tech could solve

*c100 which seems to be a diaspora group in west coast america concerned with friendships and celebrating whatever jack ma connects next

*21st C education which co-host global teachers summits in beijing (last months was with WISE of United Arab Emirates a region where the best people are hungry to revolutionise education especial;y for refugees) ; 21st C gets china's broadcasters to cross-examine what will future consequences of education be-odd no other big nation uses mass media socially in that regard- want to change one english speaking nation in that respect even if its only my poor scotland (alas John Logie Baird) !

*various research networks of blockchain

our hope is for youth to be arranging guided tours from usa leaders to these beijing epicentres before trump's first meeting with jinping - well hope springs eternal is a good (even a tao?) thing!

idea 1
so friends and I try and cheer on these young people to survey their peers and these institutions on how to use the greatest news source on china since 1957 that has almost never been seen by anyone under 75
idea 2 open space and boulder
amy (alizee) is the one of these three who has spent her first 15 months outside china in america during america's worst of all media times from UN launching sustainability goals (still mainly a corporate greenwashers paradise) to the election of trump- in the process i introduced amy to harrison owen who lives in MD Welcome to Open Space and  also in his 80s - in 1984 he invented open space on which rootcamp is based (actually rootcamp broke 2 cardinal rules - unless they contract out every delegate is supposed to have contact point of each other and every actionable project discussed during the 3 days is supposed to be recorded for everyone to take away and continue to network positively around); over 300000  open spaces in 100 countries and pretty well every culture have been hosted; but arguably harrison is proudest of his work in china which he took amy over to see; in my opinion the most savvy open space facilitator in america lives in boulder david firth The CoQuora Project  ; i dont know how near your addresses are buts lets check out the possibilities

idea 2 and a half - if its ok with Dawn Li i will continue conversations - i am interested in how tao spirit is the universal one waving trust. goodwill , humanity- being a maths guy i will probably be the last to understand it; amy among the first

 my fathers 1997 survey of china was in some ways simpler for numbers people to be optimistic about

40 Years at The Economist - 3000 leaders on East meets West and old must value youth exponentially/sustainably across generations included:

1977 china survey
dad (who was last to be trained by keynes in cambridge after surviving world war 2 as a teenage navigating bomber command over modernday myanmar and bangladesh) believed economists should celebrate wherever people lives transformed into making the most of themselves and this could be win-win everywhere as the good news of going beyond the industrial age and empire was that extraction trading isnt the future- growing people with all the education tech we have is- and knowhow multiplies value in use unlike consuming up things
 - having decided that 1 billion people were just being freed by inward investment from a wealthy diaspora of rich smart chinese traders and technologists (from such superports as taiwan, hong hong, singapore), father thought it important to celebrate chinese as the epicente of all good innovation in early 21st century being well aware that americans would need to get rid of their fear of communism which china had anyhow vanquished by 1975
so hopefully some of our life stories can help each other and all youth navigate the next decade that 30 education leaders now call the greatest #learninggeneration


i would like to find a few very short slides (or meeting notes when interviewing people in china) we can all present


please tell me if any of these make sense (ie can you translate them into something you would use in chinese)



we linkin youth intelligence on education for jobs from leading summits

*worldwide: education commission (30 leaders including jack ma jim kim) -goal next decade greatest #learninggeneration

*UAE WISE and million dollars teachers prize

*China: 21stC Education

*English-speaking - brookings whats scaling summit, british council general summit, various MIT entrepreneur competitions

*Vatican Premio Sciacca and so franciscan models of heroic professions - see eg world bank Jim Kim transcripts (first circulated at change the world moo)


we link in knowhow for best girls education collaborations and sme valuation channels

*eg brac and sir fazle abed family and africa's leading adolescent girls clubs

*intel world possible, yazmi, half a million poor african children




Our channel connections (ask for demonstration of rachel) enable us to offer nearly free advertising and viral scaling for links to who is innovating greatest jobs curricula

we want to prioritise wherever that is happening in china for half a billion under 30s:


we have urgent demand for curricula on coding for all ages , and blockchains for senior audiences

cultural and language appreciation for all one belt one road connected countries


content relevant to youth research of g20 agendas (from china 016 to germany 017 to india 018 ) of which a lot seems to be linked into jack ma and small enterprise celebrations and platforms and with special focus on green finance and massive understanding of climate risks


history's future agenda 


- eg we have access to the only source of real china stories americans had between 1957-1975 - american youth want to redesign elders attitudes including many around trump so we can unite futures sustainability goals wherever world possible-- interestingly this resource was built because worldwide youth collaborated at moscow summit 1957


we have access to The Economist's original archives on entrepreneurial revolution focusing on:

1 how european public services of 1950s were born as wonderful dreams but no sustainable design across generation

2 how the west increasingly needed to learn from eastern quality and innovation staryinhg with japan from early 1960s and =continuously from china of mid 1970s

3  how next 40 yeras seen from 1972 onwards technology would cause greatest ever intergenerational changeeover - would first borderless net generations be sustainable? Tracking how curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution evolved since 1972




nb please note that politics of the tv age has massively misunderstood history's future of entrepreneurship including intergenerational sustainability of any place


whether you start in 1776 with independence declaration of happiness and freedom

or when this french word was coined a little latest , this entrepreneurial context is about how can people network when they are starved of resources needed to make a living by a few who disproportionately own everything


any successful big business leader who doesnt include in his purpose developing peoples (ending systemic poverty) may call himself anything but an entrepreneur


small entreprises are the locus of where over 90% of innovation that has improved the human lot has come from 


any lecturers who say otherwise are part of a mass tv age misinformation process


the last chapter of keynes general theory explains this compound conflict in ways that should be core to any transparent economics course, and can be resigned into how blockchain restores trust's value to any market

6th World Festival of Youth and Students - Wikipedia
The 6th World Festival of Youth and Students was opened on 28 July 1957, in Moscow, Soviet Union. The festival attracted 34,000 people from 130 countries.


thing is i would like to interview both  the conference organiser lady we met and where practical to someone representing each main sponsor- if its likely we can get one or 2 main interview in a weeks time its worth doing now- otherwise looking at my diary i dont seem t have free time for about 5 weeks; i dont want to get behind in understanding what china's summit wants to do next and ditto wise- also i am aware next big summit march is probably dubai's million dollar teacher prize organised by the billionnaire educator varkey  BBC: Sunny Varkey - The Man Behind the Million Dollar Teacher - Sunny Varkey



(there are 2 references i cant find quickly - apparently there is one china group in top 5 of mooc providers but i want to understand its goals ; china should have very different reasons to mooc than usa;  and there is a shanghai for profit organsiation which is largest in world for online content - i think it was one of the sponsors)

conversational openers

do you want to link to 30 national leaders of greatest learning generation -their web is Home | the Education Commission  at the moment only the summary is in english but actually china leads the part we are most interested in - jack ma's network is exploring hypothesis that without transformation education will faul half of all youth to get jobs

are you intesreted in demonatration of rachel (the gadget from intel world possible i was varrying around with me) -it will be part of a massive virtual learning launch in kenya on 9 december where amy knows the leaders involved and their connections which massively connect india's greatest advances in online learning out of bangalore

we have ways of conducting massive surveys up to 300000 children and teachers  at a time in africa on curricula (many acordoing to ma non-classroom based) most wanted but not yet teachable

we aim to make a worldwide calendar of which events want to interface with each other as well as which processes like G20 which have been revolutionised in educational importance thanks to china and open technologists (next bridge germany g20 017 india g20 018)

or research is led by a mixture of young chinese students and media and other elders who have lifetime observation on financial and other system changes that new technology will need to address - again in many cases china is leading this

we have spent a decade studying bangaldesh since it was the poorest greatest race to end poverty over last 40 years whereas china's even greater race was partly invested in by its wealthy diaspora

apart from valuing small enterprises and youth as greatest asset, we just want to help connect good news which is provable useful for youth to try out as livelihood opportunities; we have no political or cultural aim though obviously individuals bring their own definition of most urgent sustainability goals

Alibaba founder Jack Ma unveils ambitious plan

Mission: 100 million new jobs

By Dana McCauley

He already runs the world's biggest online shopping company, but Alibaba founder Jack Ma is not satisfied.

The Chinese billionaire has unveiled an even more ambitious plan to expand the company's reach across the globe, creating 100 million new jobs and transforming the global economy to create a more equitable world.

It may sound pie-in-the-sky, but the goal forms part of mission statement of the US$261 billion company's visionary executive chairman.

In a letter to shareholders, Ma outlined Alibaba's achievements of the past financial year - including a gross merchandise turnover of more than $195 billion (1 trillion RMB), an "unprecedented" figure - before looking to the future.

"We have more than 430 million annual active buyers, which means one out of every three individuals in China has made a purchase on our retail marketplaces," Ma wrote.

But, he said, while proud of Alibaba's online shopping achievements, "we want to do far more", saying that the benefits of globalisation had not been spread evenly, but that "digital disruption will bring us closer to a level playing field for young people and small businesses".

"We are not merely trying to shift buy/sell transactions from offline to online, nor are we changing conventional digital marketing models to squeeze out a little additional profit," he wrote.

"We are working to create the fundamental digital and physical infrastructure for the future of commerce, which includes marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing, big data and a host of other fields."

The Alibaba group of companies, founded in 1999, accounts for 60 per cent of all Chinese online sales, and this year overtook Walmart as the world's largest retailer.


It has made Ma the second richest man in Asia, with a net worth of US$28.5 billion.


It's through cloud computing that Alibaba aims to expand its reach, and the company has been investing in the technology as part of a strategy that sees shoppers' data as the contemporary equivalent of mineral riches.

"Over the next 30 years, with computing power as the new 'technology breakthrough' and data as the new 'natural resource,' the landscape of retail, financial services, manufacturing and entertainment will be transformed," Ma wrote, forecasting a decades-long period of transformation.

"The internet revolution is a historical inflection point, much like when electricity was introduced, and it may have an even greater impact," he predicted.

Alibaba's mission, he said, was to "empower merchants with the ability to transform and upgrade their businesses for the future" and "help companies all over the world to grow".

"We believe, the commerce infrastructure we have created in China - marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing and big data, all working in concert - can be applied on a global scale to lift up small and medium businesses and ordinary consumers around the world."

Eight years after launching, Alibaba Cloud hosts 35 per cent of Chinese websites, while delivering cloud computing and big data services.


Ma said Alibaba was constantly adapting to the changing e-commerce environment, as staying at the forefront of innovation was key to its continued success.

"In the coming years, we anticipate the birth of a re-imagined retail industry driven by the integration of online, offline, logistics and data across a single value chain," he said.

"With e-commerce itself rapidly becoming a "traditional business," pure e-commerce players will soon face tremendous challenges."

A shift to mobile revenue was one such change, he said, with mobile climbing from a single-digit percentage to three-years of total revenue from Alibaba's Chinese retail marketplaces, in the space of two years.

"This is why we are adapting, and it's why we strive to play a major role in the advancement of this new economic environment," Ma said.

Innovations like Alibaba's Qianniu app, which helps online businesses to improve sales and marketing while enhancing efficiency, were an example of the type of projects the company aimed to focus on.

"In 20 years, we hope to serve two billion consumers around the world, empower 10 million profitable businesses and create 100 million jobs," Ma said, adding: "This will be an even more difficult journey than the one behind us."

LISTEN : Newstalk ZB Political Editor Barry Soper speaks to Andrew Dickens on KPMG Early Edition

Mr Ma - who's worth around $50 billion - met with John Key in Beijing late yesterday. He made his money through founding the online commerce platform Ali Baba.

Standing alongside the Prime Minister, he heaped praise on the country, which he says is loved by many Chinese.

"At least 20 of my colleagues retired from Ali Baba. They're all very young, in their 40s, they all go to New Zealand."

"I asked what they do apart from the golf and green things and they say it's the people there."

It wasn't all social, with the Chinese billionaire also talking business.

Jack Ma told the entrepreneurs luncheon Kiwi businesspeople find it difficult to access the Chinese market.

Mr Ma said he wants to make that easier with his multi-platform organisation.

"We have Ali Baba University. We would either have courses in New Zealand or invite the entrepreneurs in New Zealand to stay in China for two weeks for training."

"The second is that we're going to open an Ali Baba business embassy next year in New Zealand."

John Key is in China meeting business and political leaders.



Innovation "Made in China" - The Case of Alibaba and the role of Net-based Small Business

Innovation is a key driver for economic development and social progress and small business is one of the best ways for people to express their willingness and capability to innovate.  Pervasive business ownership has, therefore, been the foundation in many societies for the continued improvement of people’s economic wellbeing. In the People’ Republic of China, however, private business ownership was prohibited between 1957 and 1978. Productive innovations were extremely restricted and as a consequence, China’s economy was on the verge of collapse by the end of 1978. The Chinese people had suffered a historic setback.

Alibaba’s growth, driven by unleashing grassroots entrepreneurship, has become an exemplar of China’s innovation in the 21st century.  Started by 18 young people in 1999, Alibaba has grown into a giant global internet platform and has made many invaluable contributions to China’s progress. Highlighting the importance of pervasive small business ownership in unleashing grassroots innovation and improving economic wellbeing, Professor Lowrey will discuss Alibaba’s innovative strategies and explain the economic theory behind its inspiring success.




Dr. Ying Lowrey is Professor of Economics at Tsinghua University and Deputy Director of the Tsinghua Research Center for Chinese Entrepreneurs, and a member of the Academic Committee for Alibaba Group Research Institute. Her teaching and research interests include economics of innovation and entrepreneurship in the internet and platform economy, the modern microfinance market, business demographics, characteristics of business owners, and the role of free enterprise and competition in the macroeconomy. 

She received her economics Ph.D. from Duke University, economics MA from Yale University and mathematics BS from Wuhan University. Before joining Tsinghua University in 2012, she served as senior economist at the Office of Advocacy, U.S. Small Business Administration and has taught economics at George Washington University and San Diego State University.

Founder of Ali Baba commits his work for Chinese on internet to generate 100 million microentrepreneur jobs in 2010s - who else would you vote at the centre of 100 million job creation leagues?
=====================update sumer 2016:
unlike oiher years spent with bangaldeshi inspired youth, i spent 2015-2016 mainly with a class of chinese female students - what brilliant minds and tirelss sources of human energy - i hope this summary of why the whole world can celebrate what jack ma is doing is near to the mark - but as always look forward to editing any errors which are mine alone washington dc text 240 316 8157
was english language tutoring

In 1995 he was sent to the usa on an exchange mission and encountered the worldwideweb - then unknown in China. He determined the www would be the biggest job creating innovation of his (or his generations) life and hopefully of every Chinese entrepreneur he could valuably link into.

Over the next 15 years his wizard coding teams went from something that was little more than an electronic yellow pages for small businesses to conceiving sustainability generation's 2 greatest retailing platforms china or the world may ever have seen..

the taobao platform is the most valuable job creating concept retailers have ever mediated because it reverses the western trend of globalisiation of retailers, bankers and big corporations squeezing out local and small enterprises from having a market; how taobao did that is an extraordinarily detailed story but note how Ma was concerned to ensure even the most cut-off of Chinese villagers could start up on tao bao (rural ecommerce is one of the innovations that Ma has led the www purpose to linkin)

His other mall was pitched at the more usual high cost fashions of big global merchandisers. Because of complex property laws in chinese cities, most expensive retailers are not much of a joy to shop in. So ali baba created a lifestyle -eg celebrate singles day 11/11 shopping virtually rather than the physically exhausting interaction in The West's biggest shopping days of the year)

SO 365/24/7 consumers of ali baba can choose who they value developing most with their purchasing power as well as searching merchandise with global image or local cultural joy

Alibaba has become china's and probably the word's largest retailing channel. It does this with next to no merchandise but brilliant coding so that every store front on its platforms delivers with equal reliability. Hunting out exactly how Ma forms partnerships so that big data analysis benefits the smallest enterprises and most local consumers ought to be a job of whomever is sustainability goals greatest economist.

Intriguingly to ensure he could compete with the chinese internet companies that raced to co-create the www that Ma had opened space for in china, Ma IPO'd Alibaba through a process 2010-2015 while developing his secret sustainability weapon under private ownership.
