thank you for your questions on curriculum of Tao and WHO IS AMY? -see below

parallel exercise please nominate paralle cultural, peopels spiritual and civic movements eg zen, maharishi; also resources where you can learn from futures which emerged in spite of current propaganda that a particuolar genetration lived through -eg storiees duriung the time of china's cultural revolution such as learn from lei feng (an unknown soldier who became fabled as promising to be the best that every red army soldier could be) 

 "Why I love The Maharishi Institute"story of one of the first 150000 alumni of maharishi institute - also known as mandela extranet partnerships formed by taddy blecher s.a frica since 19992:

 - there are quarter of a billion amy  an story  as well as a particular one who coaches this web's editors on how different china's human inteligence is from america's rush to artificial intelligence

i first met now 24 year old amy Alizee <> 18 months ago - it was her first time outside china- she was over celebrating the 20th creative youth olympiads which was staged on the ellipse outside the white house for 4 days - the chinese were the biggest international youth group--

she comes from mao's province, and has a relatively disadvantaged background as her father dared to have more than one child including her- most of the - a Norman Macrae Foundation Youth Economists Project (china's under 30s women) come from an opposite dynamic in the sense of being the only youth responsible for the whole family tree's future- this makes enough of this demographic network the most trusted-empowerment movement with massive scaling hope youth has of creating sustainability's 3 billion new jobs and training programs

since july 4th 2015 amy has been commuting between usa and china building connections with people who want us and china youth's goals to love each others most sustainable skills for the future

i have helped introduce her to about 10 tech, social and other human facilitation geniuses (or luminaries of at least as much passion as bob, or people who have worked with deepest of all female poverty challenges in bangladesh) but she still has no collaboration base/resources to connect all her work apart from a small family firm that organises student exchanges

if for example we could have found a small part of bobs pictorial treasure trove of china since 1957 and trained youth on both sides to virally tell good news stories about that at student unions or wherever they connect that could have been a way to build student exchanges or peer to peer education hubs both of which she is researching


- eg on december 9 our african friends start producing jobs curricula for 300000 african children and teachers at the same time - the first network being rural catholic kenyan children; this network is of huge interest to amy's youth partners in rome and vatican (franciscan alumni) university such as maurice, ' whilst i personally dont think obama helped empower youth the way he originally campaigned- presumably if there is any positive legacy of his development agenda its known by jim kim and its base is in kenya which also has world class models of youth hubs and financial inclusion- at least i assume sam founder of the results network would testify to that; anyhow if kim and obama legacy fail to build kenya-china connections the redoubtable shannon may of bridges international will - she is the darling of chinese broadcast media having explained her 5 years teaching in chinese village school led her to designing the fastest growing rural africa schools content program its based on changing the roles of 98% of teachers something the chinese are up for as much as americans teachers unions and big universities are against-

 assuming that 300000 children jobs curricula works out well approaching bob to give us even 10 minutes of videos so africans love china would be a strategic fit - there is no longer an african nation i can think of that isnt better off with long term chinese inward investment than us or uk- boulder could be a space to open up as has world class tao facilitator david firth doing this with schools and large community gatherings; and it is home for america's greatest end poverty practitioner paul polak (who is about the same age as bob)

at the same time one of amy's great value innovations is peer to peer language teaching - so teaching english remains the one area of "aid" that every nation including china still does want from the old top-down world of english thinking

but i didnt get the feel that bob wanted to open source even 10% of his stuff or perhaps the issue is that he doesnt yet know which parts of his stuff commercial partners want or who they are- its a pity because give tsinghua and yale university part of bobs archives to get their alumni celebrating how tao travels across borders and that would be a joyful dynamic all over youth's world- among the 30 ;leaders of the greatest #learninggeneration it was tokyo's mayor that asked for the curriculum of tao to become a locally sensitive/civics 5th grade curricula for the simple reason that its was the first time in her own school life that she had been told it was ok to create things yourself ; there is plenty of research which shows that if you dont help children co-create before adolescence you kill off their entrepreneurial and their collaborative capacities - not a good idea in the worldwide webbed world

during amy's second week abroad she was briefed on the importance of that by the founder of mande;a's extranet and connector of gandhi/maharishi self-empowernent values which are to do with the same energy of BEING that you explained tao to me as celebrating

ultimately uniting all those who in some way facilitate local or global tao is probably something amy aims to do through life - but ask her..

Dawn maybe you and amy are able to speak to bob and his chinese-american fans in ways i cant ; it does seem that c100 are the chinese in america network we all needed to get connected with but i havent found the way- oddly the first chinese person amy met was part of how stanford-based chinese american youth exchanges had been built since 1990 but he's over 80 going a bit deaf and while he likes amy doesnt seem to have the tech wizard contacts that even 5 years ago he was in the middle of 

again maybe i misunderstand the deepest interpersonal trust permissions- in a world where american media is so anti-china its really difficult to get trusted to be wanting to help youth viralise sino friendships- i am not sure that even bob really understands that challenge...
also of amy's work gets much more complicated when we suddenly find that while jack ma is the greatest jobs connector of youth across all countries we need tio be able to speak blockchain to get close to helping him

nonetheless while i havent read all of it yet - china's story of what development is could be used to be the tao view of development wherever local ways to practise tao and small enterprise world trades flourish as 18 of G20 leaders readily signed up to do at China G20 in Hangzhou - in other words uniting youth and leaders around China's new declaration of development interdependence is probably what entrepreneurship in usa and all sustainability youth's jobs needs to be empowered by from this day on rather than legislators or media spending one more second arguing over first to 20th amendments of PA's 1776 declaration of independence

Dawn its this development mindset that i am trying to help chinese and american youth build -do you know anyone at Committee of 100 they seem to be the pivotal chinese american network - i wonder if bob has already connected with them

After graduating in 2015 Amy came over to usa from launch of sustainability goals to try and connect youth exchanges - its been a real up and down 15 months with trump appearing to double or nothing everything- we're always looking for positive ideas to link american and chinese youth exchanges around

Chris  -- I am for wise development. J  Development without balancing or battling against overt materialism and preserving and protecting the natural environment for the health of the inhabitants would result in tragic destruction of resources that would never be reversed.  Sharing best practices and lessons learned between nations on development would help narrow the gaps.

this is quite an amazing document imo - any ideas on how we can narrow gaps between americans, others  and chinese welcome any time
Development is a universal human theme, providing for people's basic needs and giving them hope of better life. The right to development is an inalienable human right, symbolizing dignity and honor. Only through development can we address global challenges; only through development can we protect basic civil rights of the people; only through development can we promote the progress of human society.
China, with a population of over 1.3 billion, is the largest developing country in the world. Development is the top priority of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in governance and national revitalization, and the key to resolving all other problems. Based on its prevailing conditions, China adheres to the Chinese socialist path and to the philosophy that development is of paramount importance. China integrates the principle of universal application of human rights with the country's reality. While striving to enhance the people's wellbeing through development and materialize their right to development, China endeavors to achieve higher-level development by protecting their right to development. In this regard, China has made notable progress and blazed a path in protecting human rights during the development of human civilization.
Since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, the CPC Central Committee with Xi Jinping as its core has highlighted the idea of people-centered development. In the course of realizing the Two Centenary Goals [Note: The two goals are to complete the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects by the centenary of the CPC (founded in 1921) and to build China into a modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, and harmonious by the centenary of the People's Republic of China (founded in 1949).] and the Chinese Dream of revitalizing the Chinese nation, it has focused on safeguarding and improving people's wellbeing, advancing all social programs, and protecting people's rights to equal participation and development. The aim is to share development benefits and achieve common prosperity among all people of the country.
On the 30th anniversary of the publication of the "Declaration on the Right to Development by the United Nations," China, dedicated to advocating, practicing and promoting the right to development, is willing to join the international community to share its philosophy and experience in this regard and to boost sound development of global human rights.
I.The Philosophy of the Right to Development Abreast with the Times
Equal access to development opportunities and development benefits are the ideals of human society wherein each and every citizen can achieve well-rounded development and enjoy full right to development.
The Chinese people are diligent, wise, innovative and progressive. In traditional Chinese culture, concepts such as "moderate prosperity" (xiao-kang), "great harmony" (datong), "having ample food and clothing" (fengyi zushi) and "living and working in peace and contentment" (anju leye) fully reflect the Chinese people's aspiration for and pursuit of a better, happier life. In the long course of history, the Chinese people have always striven for better and shared development opportunities, conditions and benefits. In ancient times, China was for long the world leader in agriculture, and contributed to human progress with extraordinary development achievements. Studies reveal that until the mid-19th century, China's GDP and per capita GDP were the world's highest. Before the 16th century, China contributed 173 of the world's top 300 innovations and discoveries.
After the Industrial Revolution started in the 18th century, China began losing its leadership. Foreign aggression and expansion by Western colonialists completely destroyed conditions for development in China. Repeated invasions by foreign powers, particularly from the West, from 1840 to 1949, and China's corrupt ruling class and backward social system reduced China to a semi-colonial and semi-feudal society. There was constant warfare, an unstable society, economic depression, no security of livelihood, and extreme poverty. The Cambridge History of China: Republican China 1912-1949 describes China's situation in the first half of 20th century as follows: "...the great majority of Chinese merely sustained and reproduced themselves at the subsistence level ... the standard of life for many fell short even of that customary level." [Note: The Cambridge History of China (Volume 12): Republican China 1912-1949 Part I, Cambridge University Press, 1983, p. 28.] "As a system, China's economy which was 'pre-modern' even in the mid-twentieth century ceased to be viable only after 1949..." [Note: Ibid. p. 29.] In these 110 years, the Chinese people struggled arduously for their right to development and equal access to development opportunity. The Chinese people are fully aware of the value of development and of their right to development

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. AlIpay is china's number 1 financial inclusion delivery system and maybe global youth most humanly productive coding achievement to date.

Comparing china's top 10 internet properties with the west's is very interesting. Are the consuming behaviours on ali baba more sustainable than those on amazon or ebay or paypal? Are the learnng behaviours on baidu more sustaining of youth than on google or coursera or microsoft's linkedin. Time will tell but note how speaking english, chinese and coding (as well as mother tongue) are probably what educators anywhere on planet earth should NOW be most valuing their global youth's future freedom to thrive entrepreneurially around.
