100 greatest friends of china and sustainable youth worldwide

  • 1977 survey China - from archives The Economist- Open Source Rights Asserted Norman Macrae Foudation -chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk china wiki


can you help us co-create the most valuable curriculum of the 21st C - with thanks to associates blockchaincity.net and ChinaThanks.com and EconomistUniversity.com


 Curriculum us-china goodwill relationships appearing tomorrow at www.amychina.net
Why study?
Most valuable curriculum any under 30 can study if she/he wants to contribute to sustainability generation
Why? because sustainability's small enterprise networking depends on mass community collaboration without borders- if conflicts arise between china and usa as 2 biggest nations to trade with 
then other nations will be forced to choose sides – just when youth empowermernt most need to share positive knowhow
How do you study and build lifelong goodwill – at foundation level you probably need 4 languages- mother tongue, English .chiense. coding – the good news is it shouldn’t be expensive to study these languages – find virtual friends and start teaching each other's languages- jack ma became the world’s wealthiest busineesman by studing english- back in 1976 he had to use pre-gfigital means- befriend tourists to his town in china- network with those  he liked through pen pal leters
where did this curriculum start?
Henry Kissinger visit to china in 1971- at that time it was a taboo for a top American to visit china- moreover it was weird as usa exported more to honduras than china!
In late 1970s Kissinger met some Chinese who were becoming community and business leaders in America- he advised them to set up the C100 – 100 diaspora chinese in America network  continuing to promote goodwill between china and America
  ted For that reason in 2016 the 3 people groups Kissinger updain early december 2016 on this curriculum were xi jinping in Beijing , donald trump and 200 young and old friends of C100 in ny  14 dec 2016

what innovation frameworks are friends of US-China discussing after Kissinger mediation of Trump-Jinping Dec 2016

 the national systems are set up so trump will either be the greatest (best of) or worst of presidents- nothing in between; in fact 2017-2025 is due to be best or worst of time of humanity anyhow -- so mediation would have been not dis-similar in appraising future consequence of any of the candidates of 016- however trump has an advantage of going beyond the monoploy of the washington insider mindset that has spun since the first clinton admin in 1992

NOW; youth's future sustainabiliuty everywhere depends on mass collaboration between leading nations (this is the unique lavue of digital learning apps) the Hangzhou g20 consensus was the best ever economic and social systems use of 20 biggest nations leaders time- let hope germany g20 2017 and argentina 2018 continues this most critical of local to global colabiration platforms (and the various peopels processes eg women20 business20 youth20 that do the yera round homework)

Warinng - any reporting errors are mine alone- chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk ::  Is this the most economically and socially valuable 3 hour agenda New York has ever freed 200 people to listen to? While I would happily hear other "agenda" nominations (and where they can be replayed for youth to intergenetaionally learn) I will be asking as many of the 200 people who attended as I can for ideas on how to replay this agenda

 China's coming out to trade with the world since 1976 is the greatest ever human interest story. It links in economically and socially of over a billion peopels livelihoods. The series of transformations (past and soon to come) involved are unprecedented. Speed of change has been such that few people in China (let alone worldwide youth and teachers) have been given the chance to understand this whole. 

University Club Keynote 1 Dec 14,2016, Bing Xiang - CKGSB: - I have chosen 4 things I wish were appreciated by American (or anywhere's) policy to China now:

1 Focus on how many common interests China and US have - on what outcomes can you think of that the world of nations needs unified leadership by its 2 strongest nations 

2 In more details: how do each nation's strengths compliment each other?, and how does preventing risks to our peoples intergenerational futures also compliment each other 

3 Politics of China. Every political leader including Jinping has to attend relentlessly to his peoples culture-its future history. Our Confucian culture is thousands of years old.  It deeply values sustainability, nature and long-term system design as well as deep community respect. Why would any peoples be afraid of that? For example, we are the only large nation to spend more on internal security/personal safety than external. We have a history of valuing external peace. Since 1976, you could argue China has become more capitalist than anyone but Jinping's number 1 internal demand is now to deal with inequality

4 Multiple systemic disruptions ("tipping points")- that's what the next few years holds systemically for all peoples everywhere. Technology, Infrastructure, world trading systems ... whats needed is mass collaboration. No country can naviagte these transformations on its own - certainly not china imo

Points based on recall of presentation by Dean Bing Xiang of CKGSB (founded 1989). Subject to correction when powerpoint is shared. Any errors in reporting solely due to chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk 

That over a billion people have co-organised such progress is a remarkable testimony to Confucianism or the self-meditation practice of Tao - or something that people experiencing rapid change anywhere on the planet can joyfully co-learn (references on learner centred education and open space to come) 


.......................................................................................  By analysing what problems china and america need to help each other solve we can then ask : how can there be 3-way solution of problems incluing europe as 3rd biggest market? Of course we need to ask the same question for every nation's potential win-win but if China and USA and Europe are all designed to confliuct with progressing what their peoples most need then there is litle chaince that foreign assiatnce from these 3 big players will turn out well, and there is little chance that a peace dividend will ever connect with the education commission's gola of designing the next decade to be the greatest #learing generation everywhere

China has many growth opportunities:

still many sectors to derugulate including sports! 

china doesnt need to build worldwide brands slowly when it can buy them out - eg buting lout volvo or club med

when people say currency engineering is  main reason for china success they are wrong- china makes eg mobile phones that west marks up by 100 fold...

Comments on Extreme Importance of US-China Appreciation from Alumni of Entrepreneurual Revolutions

Hopefuly its clear that the signifance to thise alive today ofu-schina frjendships becomes more tramsparent oif you are aware of ER> 


ER is an editoirial lens my father started in The Economost in 1972, and sustained for the second half of his 40 years at The Economist

ER is based on theise inconveneint truth drawing on Keynes


System rules economits design lock in what future is possible for a place's next generation  (see last chapter of Keyne's Gneral Theoiry where he explianed why this expoenetial system role of economists makes them both the grreatest threat and greatest opportunity to sustaining the human lot of next generations)

 Q3 of C20 saw huge risks to next generations being designed into wester systems:

Fear due to world war 2 and nuclear chnaged what politicians spent most of their time and increasing budgets on


Markets of most social significance (eg health, education, pensions) had been designed in the west as intergenerational ponzi schemes

-take euriope's national health services- wonderful purposes but launched with no model of intergenerational affordability- while the demogtraphic population

bubble of more people of working age than pension age was  in play taxes bankrolled the market's services- not inconvenient dynamics:

 the system requitres youth to bail lout olders; the system isnt designed aroung beter value- customers and pharma manufactires behiave extravagantly. 


Keynes clarified that economoics legislates rules as monopolies (which numbers professions enforce) that are extremely inconvenenient in valuing revolutions in innovation

ER is based on noticing that between 2030 and 1946 the world due to sopend 4000 times more on communications connectivity

Human susttsianibility would be lost if we failed to realie that old economist rules would be the most perfectly wrong way of designing this revolution

Henry Kissinger and CKGSB Dean Xiang Bing Discuss US-China Relations in Trump-Xi Era

2016-12-15 · New York

Former US Secretary of State features at CKGSB Knowledge Series Event in New York just days after meeting Chinese President in Beijing


New York, NYThe Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business, China’s leading business school, hosted a special edition of its Knowledge Series events in New York City this week, featuring an impressive line-up of speakers, including former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. In the context of the ongoing US presidential transition and Kissinger’s recent meeting with China’s President Xi Jinping, CKGSB’s event served as a timely and pertinent platform to shed light on this critical moment in history.


The world renowned diplomat, who laid much of the groundwork for President Nixon’s historic visit to China in 1972, offered his views on the state of US-China relations, which are at something of a crossroads amid uncertainties over US President-elect Donald Trump’s China policy. Kissinger, who has briefed the incoming President on China policy, struck an optimistic note on the future of this important bilateral relationship.  He argued that the sometimes tough rhetoric that candidate Trump used during the campaign was likely just talk aimed at “satisfying domestic constituencies”.


President-elect Trump has yet to take office, Kissinger pointed out, arguing that “in the beginning of an administration, it’s possible that many different points of view are expressed.”  Dr. Kissinger said he believes, however, that when President-elect Trump does take office and thoroughly examines US national interests with respect to China, that “the cooperative way will prevail”. “If China and America are in conflict,” he said, “the whole world will be divided.”  


Dr. Henry Kissinger at CKGSB’s Special Knowledge Series event


Kissinger also broached the subject of the One-China policy, just days after President-elect Trump questioned US commitment to it on national television.  “I was a participant in the establishment of that policy,” he said, referring to his secret diplomacy with Premier Zhou Enlai, which set the stage for Nixon’s visit and the subsequent Shanghai Communiqué that stressed both countries commitment to a unified China. “[China-policy] has been conducted the same way for eight administrations over 50 years,” he continued, arguing that the American embrace of the rise of China, and the importance of the US recognizing the validity of Beijing’s One-China policy, have been two of the truly bipartisan policy stances to stand the test of time.


Echoing Kissinger’s confidence, CKGSB Founding Dean and Professor of China Business and Globalization, Xiang Bing, emphasized the opportunities and responsibilities that lie ahead for the US and China. “There are ongoing disruptions in economic development models, technology, social changes, global trade and investment systems, global governance, geopolitics, as well as climate change and sustainable development,” said Dean Xiang. “As a result of these transformations, this may be the best of times or the worst of times. China and the US have a joint responsibility to make it the best of times for humanity.” 


CKGSB Founding Dean Xiang Bing delivering keynote remarks at the event


Dean Xiang also stressed the idea that both the US and China face similar challenges—such as combating income inequality and supporting the middle class—and that these complimentary challenges can be addressed through bilateral collaboration.


Dr. Xiang used the example of the iPhone to illustrate his point. While Apple employs many Chinese workers in the construction of the phone, China’s economy captures less than 2%, or $5, of the final sales value. Workers and investors in the US, meanwhile, capture close to 60% of the final sales price tag through high-value tasks like product design.


China’s challenge is to create Apple-like innovation at home, so that it can also benefit from these high-value processes, while the US’s challenge is to find a way to spread the wealth of its already innovative economy more evenly among its citizens. But neither goal, Dr. Xiang said, will be achieved through trade barriers, which will only prevent the flow of ideas and hinder necessary collaboration.


In the final analysis, both Kissinger and Xiang were very optimistic about the future of the US-China bilateral relationship because both nations have so much to gain by working together. “I believe there is an unusual opportunity for synchronizing the actions of the two countries,” Kissinger said, “primarily because it is so clearly in their national interests.”  


Seated from Left to Right: Bing Xiang, Founding Dean of CKGSB; Dr. Henry Kissinger, Former US Secretary of State; Ambassador Carla Hills, Chairman and CEO of Hills & Company;


Joining Dr. Kissinger and Dean Xiang at this unique CKGSB event were a line-up of other distinguished speakers, including Cheng Li, Director of Brookings Thornton China Center; Ambassador Carla Hills, Chairman and CEO of Hills & Company; Frank Wu, Chairman of the Committee of 100; and Mary Darby, Chief Representative of CKGSB Americas. These opinion leaders drew on their historical experiences and personal anecdotes to shed light on this critical moment in US-China relations.  


CKGSB’s event, which convened over 150 American and Chinese government, business and opinion leaders, as well as global media, was particularly timely. Earlier this month, Dr. Kissinger met with President Xi Jinping to discuss US-China relations. During the visit, President Xi expressed his hope for relations to “move ahead in a sustainable and stable manner” during this time of transition. On this, Kissinger confirmed his confidence in future relations between the two countries. 


US and Chinese leaders from both the public and private sectors attended this special event


As a global business school from China, CKGSB aims to foster dialogue on important issues, such as US-China relations, by convening thought leaders from the East and West to share their experiences and insights for a better mutual understanding. The school will continue to do so by partnering with influential institutions in the field, such as the Committee of 100, to bring in different perspectives and connect networks.

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."

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

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.
