pls thank all involved for the great zoom update of legatum scholars 2019-20 last week-
you may recall professor edward roberts -introduced to me by professor joanne yates -whose research on world's number 1 job creating unis fascinated me, first introduced us , i helped referee mit100k accelerator dev stage around 2011, as well as attended legatum convergences- i have cc'd some of the people i had dinner with and try to keep track of
as a cambridge ma in statistics, i was very interested in the maths keynote zoomed to legatum scholars- and its debate of will bottom 3 billion entrepreneurs be most impacted if not by corona immediately, then exponentially by interlocking value chains such as rise in food prices hitting the poorest and/or other health service mothers and infants need most being disrupted
would it be possible to book a telephone call or whats app with you ?
- i am +1 240 316 8157 for anyone mapping the following. i line near the national institutes of health at border of dc/md
ASIAN GIRLS SAVED THE WORLD HEALTH, SMITHIAN-ECONOMICS AND 'MOORE"
the main emphasis of my family foundation since dad norman macrae the economist's sub editor of entrepreneurial revolution ie whether tech would value sdgs empowerment through every poorest community especially from east to west has been the last 10 years of the work and alumni of http://www.fazleabed.com
- in our view the benchmark of rural keynes since my fathers coining of that start up genre 1977 the economist
2020 MOTHER OF ALL NATURAL CRISES
i believe that if we can map how BRAC as the worlds largest ngo partnership needs to sustain its 4 main moving parts that will also inform many of the toughest questions asked by legatum graduates
when dad died the japan embassy in dhaka kindly hosted 2 evening roundtables - one on future of global university of poverty which fazle chaired and one on fintech bkash.com chaired by kamal quadir who represents the bangladesh learning curve that soros and iqbal and legatum began with bangladesh
villagers in 1994
in this sense the 4 prime orbits around brac worlds number 1 partnership of ngos are
B1 all 50 years work of in-village services which until iqbal brough village phones to bangladesh was all of brac's services
B2 the fintech revolution which the quadir family know and now partnered by gates and jack ma
B3 the international brac office- this handles all 12 international sections of brac including africa where soros-brc investments in sIerra leone and liberia fortunately prcded ebola and helped jim kim lead what were otherwise missing parts of ending ebola- netherlands also handles international remittances- in a normal year up to a third of foreign exchange earnings of the whole of bangladesh are remittances hence need to transparently value remittances for poorest supply chain
B4 the university partners- this is a pece i would love to discuss with you further after 8 years of tracking the good news is that the legacy of university partnering is being leg by george soros, leon botstein, and accidentally partners of ban-ki moon- i say accidentally as soros 30 year long uni CEU had to move from budapest to vienna at end of last year- 2 years ahead of that the former president o austria had invited ban ki moon to be the residEnt for 2 worldwide curricula - climate adaptability and youth as global frontline citizens

so a lot is at the crossroads now- i have no interest in any single party but would like to see win-wins between al- my fathers work was first recognised abroad by japan emperor family and as i expect you know mits other bir middle east supporters include abdul latif which i know of as the toyota franchise of the middle east - in these next 6 months of elections of the g8 leaders i can understand the consistency of japans support for sdgs - to that extent i have a bias towards seeing japan and village women entrepreneurs lead anything washington dc whee i live will not do in 2020- but then lik you i am a diaspora scot- we had been planning huge fringe festival to cop 26 on 260th year of man-machine learning celebrating alumni of adam smith and james watt but like the olympics all that is up in the air
best to all- chris macrae +1 240316 8157
ps one of the co-judges of mit100k was a grad of cairo university who has gone on to connect robotics out of boston - that could be very exciting not least because the female mayor of tokyo responsible for health and olympics operations is also a graduate of cairo and on gordon browns commision of 2 national leaders who believe in hg ewell bon mots civlisation is race between education and catastrophe

according to moores law- families on earth between 1965 and 2020 needed to plan for when your mobile device or any thing linked by 5G has more analytic brainpower than individual humans- each G decade 0G 1970s to 5G 2020s would multiply 100 more tech around engineering alumni of moore -his networking hubs were branded as silicon valley on us west coast in 1972
it is worth noting that even with 1960s tech kennedy could set 10000 youth networking goal of landing on the moon - so what other collaborations mission impossible can we the peoples map across nations of our children are to sustain generations- the four new application economies that emerged after world war 2 linked in around
digital computing von neumann - coding for the moon landing was done by MIT where mini computers were led by olnen until people like gates jobs case torvaulds and berners lee who moved from geneva to mit
satellite and telecoms economies leading to mobile devices in 3G 200s but started a s race between russia and america in 1950s
engienering infsrastructire and microe;lectronics economies started around deming alumn in japan and across asian east coastal belt island down toi singapore acroiss to s korea and from 1978 china mainland -these were where portable devies were made as well as where the infrastyructiures of a global economy where 90% is shiped, trained as well as partjnered through hundreds of just in tiem supply chains evolved
and the world's poorest mothers who grounded networks around life critical servoces - first with no access to electricity grids- this is where chinese and bangladesh women invented 10 times less costly health services round community services that raised life expectancy from 40 to 65 - while this remained 10 years below the most advanced west economies - it made markets for basic universal mother and children health 10 times more economic than the west- local food secirity and personal safety were all part of the miracle of womens rural keynes up to 1996 when these village mothers were able to enjoy the first partnership innovations with solar and mobile- anyone who doesnt know how this extraordinary economic transformation mapped form 1972 to 1996 isnt likely to be able to help youth be the sustainability generation
world leaders in 5g are huawei and nordica- if your place place is not alowed to experiment at community level with these real time sharing tech it wont lead innovation - it should howver keep searcing what green innovations are possible is supercities or global vilages that are sharing world lead in #digital cooperation
