100 greatest friends of china and sustainable youth worldwide

Imagine your job description involves 2 innovations that nobody (other than you) has ever spent 50 years thinking about:


  • creating half a billion jobs over next 15 years with your country’s young people
  • valuing how new technology requires youth to create a sustainability job for a young person outside your country for every job you create inside your country


Before we review the maps you shared with 19 countries, which as of 2016 were best resourced to invest in your collaboration plan, lets review 2 muddles that most of the world’s historians and the future’s exponential system designers haven’t openly explained to the peoples living around planet earth, and may if Keynes General Theory is correct not consciously understand themselves!



Just over 300 years ago, there were a few kings and queens (or priests) and their armies and small cities built to serve them.  They had quite a good life and almost everyone else merely subsisted. In this old world, Henry Eighth’s 6 wives was quite a modest show of chauvinism. Across the channel, a few generations later : the peoples first tool of entrepreneurial transfer of assets to the social dream of liberte egalite fraterite was the guillotine.


 Pretty much the only way to trade was by boat or horse. Unless you had access to one of these your life on earth usually didn’t move more than 20 miles away from where you were born.  Over the next 200 years boats and then trains created trades so that slowly some mases of people started to grow up to 200 times more wealth and health (life expectancy) than ever before.    For about a century more people in great britian enjoyed this growth than anywhere else because : 1) hardly anywhere in britain is more than 100 miles away from the ocean, 2) Britain led in inventing steam engine and trains and early engineering sciences. One consequence of ruling the waves was that Britain (or more accurately London) was the greatest colonizer.


In the early 1700s a banking fraud caused Scotland to fail as a nation, and the hostile takeover euphemistically called United Kingdom spiraled. By 1748,  Scot Adam Smith was writing prescient books on what sorts of value chains could empower entrepreneurially smart colonial relationships. He advised that Britain should celebrate when America became a bigger market than Britain in such a way that encouraged America to design positive world trades with Britain’s inclusion and anywhere else ready to go beyond constituting top-down Empires.


London did not adopt his moral sentiment logics in time. The somewhat paradoxical result. America declared independence 1776, however adopted English as its main language and joint partnership in the new scientific ways of thinking, but largely withdrew within its massive continent for over a 100 years. (Not a long time as generations of millennium 2 counted things – China withdrew inwardly for three quarters of a millennium when it transpired that Hangzhou being the epicenter of world trade attracted too many barbarians requiring a great wall to make the nation safe)


Meanwhile London continued to lead European colonization of East Hemisphere and South  – to huge subcontinents such as most of what was called India, and strategic parts of Africa (East and South). It also quasi-colonised Adam Smith’s country Scotland : by 1843 taxation and other laws out of London’s parliament had created a regime where the majority of all Scottish peoples were required to sale the seven seas to make a living. Scots had become one of the first diaspora nation with majority of their people and wealth no longer living in Scotland. A Scottish businessman set out to reverse this process. He came down to London and became a member of parliament with the purpose of throwing out the majority of MPS from all parties who had by now become sponsor by the vested  interests of the big landowners (eg corn laws) not equal opportunity connectors of all the peoples.


Over the next 17 years, James Wilson’s writings (he had launched The Economist to mediate his goals through London’s Royal Societies and trading houses) influenced Queen Victoria. Probably she preferred the legacy of Commonwealth than chief of slave-trading. In 1860, she sent James to Calcutta to start transforming how Britain ruled over India. Within 9 months James died of diarrhea. It was to take a century before oral rehydration was discovered as a cure to that biggest killing disease, and to be the open source kickstarter of grassroots village women networks building Bangladesh.


The inconvenient truth of British Empire was:  here was a small island governing massive continental spaces half a hemisphere away in an age of very little communication channels . As this age brought grids such as trains, then electricity , sewerage, and learing other civil engineering solutions, it only brought these to places involved in the trade reached by boats and then trains. It left the mast majority of a continent of eg India as rural spaces with no electricity no railroads no running water, no access to studying let alone teaching modern science .


By start of the 20th century a most inconvenient reality across Europe was that countries surrounded by sea had  become colonisers. Other landlocked countries that started growing more than their own deposits of carbon and iron permitted could only power their  peoples by going to war. As well as a few arrogant individuals, this was the systemic cause of 2 world wars. For sure, the first half of the 20th century also saw the transport innovations of cars and roads, and of planes. But these trading vehicles are for expensive premium goods  and urgent personal knowledge industries not for sustaining the massive world trades of the industrial or agricultural markets.



Consequently at the end of world war 2, the industrial (and empire) era of zero sum world trade depending on designing nations around carbon and steel and things consumption had peaked. The greatest wealth production of the next quarter of a century moved to the East with Japan  (the S Korea) starting post-industrial revolution of quality production in engineering architectures and digital micro-electronics. This was the backbone for accelerating digital age personal computing , satellite telecommunications, human and technology networks. What  microeconomically started up  in 1946 was a doubling of spends in Learning Communications Technologies that doesn’t look like stopping before 2030. From 1972, questioning wherher the net generation consequences of this became The Economist’s new microeconomics leadership curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution and a 12 year debate with leaders surveyed in all hemispheres written up in the 1984 book The 2025 Report.  While some declared 1976-2075 as America’s 3rd Century, The Economist explained why humanity would depend on this evolving as Asia Pacific Collaboration  Century led increasing by growth in livelihoods of over a billion Chinese People



 By 2030 global villagers will be mobilising over 4000 fold more money being spent on everyone’s  lives being mobile interconnected than geographically separated. Unlike the industrial age where the grids of wealth never reached rural, priority during te coming of age of 21st Century must be given to village inclusivity . 2016 sees the last 15 year call to  all parents and grandparents who truly want youth’s (half of the world aged under 30) to be the new millennium’s first sustainability generation


In this mapping of future history that started to grow exponentially from hopes of peace in 1946, the superport metahub became the most valuable innovation of the third quarter of the 20th century. Initally the transportation infrastructure  innovations of Japan including bullet trains connecting cities, and Tokyo’s underground and innovations of crate containership all came happily together. But soon superports as micronations started  being distributed geographically in such spaces as Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore . By 1975 the Chinese Diaspora as supertraders were the 3rd richest identity in the world but the mainland billion Chinese were only just reforming the massive  rural continent enough to feed the nation. Culturally the great good fortune of the human race revolves round the Taoist culture that makes the Chinese move social constraints that other societies would likely find immovable



Once every 10 years or so the Chinese have navigated 5 extraordinary leap forwards:

  • The mid 1960s ended the sort of communism that caused 30 million starvation by prioritizing rural Keynsianms
  • In 1976 non-stated businesses were permitted for first time in half a milennium but only if as a Chinese diaspora you brought huge inward investment
  • By the late 1980s some trusted party members were ordered tob privatize utility businessed
  • In 1994 one Chinese man traveled to USA saw the worldwide web and wnt back to china with the question- how to design china’s www to be the greatest job creation stimulus ever seen- it seems that Chian’s politicians authorised 3 big coding wizard experiments from 1999 to 2008 called alibaba, baidu  and tencent
  • 2008 was to prove the most peculiar year- Americans had destroyed the stability of  property currency financial  systems;  smartphones were appearing; unlike the west dotcom battle between clicks and bricks, china had decided that the worldwideweb was at least as important as physical assets to the future of any market capable of sustaining human growth; and bitcoin/blockchain technology emerged as the transparent way to include local however global mediation of a a global market’s channel becomes



Its swimming all of these tidal waves that what some Chinese call the 4th industrial revolution and opportunities for uniting races to a generation of globally sustainable youth needs to be appraised. So in Fall 2016 Jinping invited the G20 countries to the stage the Hangzhou Consensus brainstorming round 1 of the challenge of creating the next half billion jobs in china and the next half billion jobs of youth beyond china. Joyfully China took care to plant radical enterpreneurs like jack ma and Richard Branson (B-Company movement) in the homework subnetworks of future G20s ( Youth20 Women20 GreenBusiness20 Civics20) with back from the future reporting demanded by all G20 leaders  from Germany in 2017, India 2018, Argentina 2019.


Here are the submaps that appear to have emerged so far wherever Hangzhou Consensus Alumni “hack” or “block” or elearning satlellite sustainable value chains


  • How many green jobs can we all co-create if we take the idea of transforming beyond carbon energy by 2030 as a worldwide trading commitment
  • If china demonstrates (ONE BELT ONE ROAD) of how half a hemisphere can collaboratively  upgrade railroad and maritime all the way west of China through to the continent of Africa, who wants to join in? –either in that infsraructure investment or other hemisphere upgrades
  • If  BigData Analsysis SME Valuation by Jack Ma  and the top 50 businessmen conscious of helping develop a nation at  China Entrepreneur Club can help design a worldwide Ecommerce platform for worldwide small enterprises to freely trade without any national protective policies, who wants to join in  
  • If  real jobs are going to be at heart of celebrating this generation youth, education (notably girls-led) needs total transformation beyond the class room.  Mass media needs to positively investigate that in ways that Western journalism haven’t practiced in the Keynsian way for over half a century – who wants to join in chartering the smartest #learninggeneration and valuing World Record Job Creators?
  • And if worldwide investment ledgers of maasive collaboration in smart contracts can usher in sustainability’s need total new order of transnparency,  how do  we blockchain that in every way far beyond the global professions that lost the belief in Hippocratic Oath wherever they bubbled up globalization systems of systems that were too big to mathematically exist.


And oh yeah – for all of these to start being youth’s next billion jobs fear will need to be replaced by what Jack ma calls loveq;  money will need to be spent on personal safety but ever more bottom-up nout of every community;  – there can be a peace dividend emulation John Lennon’s imagination across nations- nuclear should be taken out of  planet earth - or in any event a totally different world will be needed where more is spent on education and collaboration races, rather than unilateral arms races and bipolar politicking

I am not joking in saying I know of no harder question- look at the combined wight of american brainpower who spent most of their time and media of 2015-2016 on this question - all i can do is report a small person's conversation - mine in budapest in 2013

I was first in line to listen to a speaker- by accident he was second in line - we had gotten to room early- so his idea: greatest public servant is excellent practicaly at her or his profesisons and prepared to live a lot of lifetime with the poorest she or he can possible not just serve but action learn from

so if you think children should hear from that kind of health servant try Paul Farmer , Jim Kim , Sir Fazle Abed, one of the survising barefoot chiense doctors who helped mao end the kind of communism that starved 30 million peoples around 1962 -this tip doesnt explain how to use some of their time to distriburte lessons but thats what i always thought web technolgy was for so maybe we need help of thise whoinvented the www eg berners lee and mit friends, or those who valued web to free small enterprises eg jack ma or if don taspscott is right that the web had one missing piece as far as open government concerned- they who pilot blockchain with the poorest

you can APP this exercise to any public servant

- eg lawyers - well the dead lawyers i would have liked my child to learn from include gandhi ( alumni here), mandela (alumni ??) thurgood marshall (alumni here) 

-eg teachers - well ok I spent 3 hours with this lady watching her teach 100 chiense teachers - her bridges school system acriss africa for parents living on under 2 dolars a day has the mlost exytraordinary way of preparing and delivering lessons - but since the hunt for the teacher worth valuing most is the greatest of all colaboiration traasure hunts i Cna ever imagine I dont want to bring any diaspora scottish biases to your hunt for the teacher you'd love your childtren to closely encounter first

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
chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk 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.
