Real-time learning from history is difficult. In fact, western classroom systems of education make such learning all but impossible. That’s because teachers who report to rich nations governments are required to examine the child not to help her explore what social innovations are multiplying all around her. Let’s time travel through a few cases

 

London 1960

As a 5th grader, history and geography were compulsory subjects but history stopped with Queen Victoria ascending to the throne, and geography didn’t try to map such living flows such as languages and cultures and immigration. That’s because it would have been impossible for a mid 20th C history teacher to examine facts out of the UK. Questions about consequences on the power of England’s Industrial Revolution  would have been even more frowned upon by the establishment.

 

Questions with Exponential Consequences

In 1900, England had led the world into the 20th : so had its systems been the root cause of half a century of world wars?

 

English had become the majority language for doing trade and publishing science- was that something that peoples around the world were happy about?

 

What are the advantages and disadvantages of being an island nation looking into massive continents

 

I remember one classroom exercise which was presumably designed to give us children self-confidence. We were asked to prepare a ten minute presentation on some good news. I waded in – my father has just come back from Japan and reported in The Economist that Japan is the fastest growing (island) nation in the world. He thinks that is good news because the worldwide trading patterns Japan is growing are win-win quite unlike industrial revolution’s trade that the UK administered around the world.

My teacher stood up and said: Sit down! It was not thinkable at the school level of analyzing black and white facts that Japan could now be leading peoples world happiness because it had just 15 years ago been doing the opposite as the allies’ enemy in world war 2. Yet those who were first to accept trading friendships with Japan were to advance electronics and infrastructure systems. Even the extraordinary exponential rise of the programmable silicon chip was Intel’s innovative response to a large order from a Japanese electronics firm. Intel didn’t want too much of its trade dependent on one firm’s static specification of a chip so it invented programmable chips which doubled in computing-connections power every 18 months or so for the rest of the century. That’s millions times more energy to compute and connect with.

 

Worldwide 2016 UN HQ

 I don't usually fall off my chair whilst in the UN public gallery. But here were 30 national leaders (the education commission, #learning generation) and two - Jack Ma and Jim Kim - were saying half of youth would be unemployable by 2030 unless we took education beyond the classroom and leaprfrogged with edutech as much as with Fintech; and the female governor from japan had sent a video saying the only curriclulum that hagd got her to fall off her classroom seat as a child was zen.

 

Worldwide 1968

It was becoming clear that the fusion of computing power with a few ten thousand minds was sufficient to reach the moon. My father started spending the rest of his life’s work at The Economist facilitating on a quiz which he christened Entrepreneurial Revolution (ER). Would generations and geographies of people collaborate so that the first universally linkedin generation of the 21st century would be sustainable. In UK universities, I couldn’t find a discipline interested in exploring ER, so I studied maths and then an MA in statistics.

 

 In one sense I lucked out. My first employer was the UK National Development Project for Computer Assisted Learning. Our task was to develop online programs so that geography and psychology students could learn statistics- a subject which most did not like but was practically required if they were to progress to writing up “scientific” reports. Only much later did I learn that the most exciting ER post-moon landing debates wre happening in far away nations among those who had not yet benefited from IR’s electricity grids. From China to Bangladesh, Brazil to Peru hope was stirring among peoples: if a few tens of thousand of people can use computers to race to the moon, what can we do to end poverty and develop our peoples human lot on earth.

 

LONDON 1843

James Wilson was Scottish. He was self-taught apprenticing age 13 in  his family business in Hawick. The family business and its human way of celebrating employees became so successful as a small enterprise making hats that James relocated to London. There he made a fortune which he then lost through speculating in indigo. He had learnt success and failure the hard way. He was relentless believer in small enterprises create positive world wide trade and too many top-down rules sponsored by big vested interest do the opposite. He started The Economist to be a severe test of London (and at that time the world’s) biggest businessmen. Curiously Queen Victoria decided James view of free markets and commonwealth might be happier to lead than the old empire’s slavemaking. She chartered a bank for James to start up and ordered him to go and make India entrepreneurial with it. Thus James sailed off to Calcutta, where he died 9 months into te project of diarrhea. A disease whose cure – oral rehydration -learning to mix boiled water sugar and salts in exact proportions- took another century to find but was successfully used to empower girls to build the 8th most populous nation : Bangladesh. Children would gain a lot if small business entrepreneurship was on te curriculum and dared start with James’s story because its certainly not yet understood by western mass media nor famous western MBA professors. (For those who like people-centric economics stories, James son-in-law Walter Bagehot continued to help Victoria reform the British Constitution.

 

1700+ Scotland

Scots lose more than half their savings in an international banking scam. As a failed nation, they are taken over by England. Londoners like eating sheep which become valued by London as worth more quarterly than Scottish people. The result is by 1843, in the search for livelihoods,  more than half of scots have joined James in emigrating. In other words, as a mainly diaspora natiosn Scots become one of the first nationalities whose people live around the world instead of on their own land. James Wilsson was an ardent reader of Adam Smith whose books on trust-flows and free markets should always be translated from the Scottish questioning of where do we need to connect with to sustain livelihoods and family. As 21st centiry comes of age , most youth will grow livelihhods from worldwide networking as much if not more than where they live locally. We the 8 billion peoples of mother earth should want that at the same time as demanding they give back to any sustainability chalenged locality their family tree has grown through

 

SUMMARY

History, the love of peoples past and future,  is one of those curricula that should never be examined, it should be an exploration of what futures are possible to innovate next to improve the human lot and sustain mother earth

 

When is it more important that educators free children to search maps within guided patterns? This is a very different pedagogy from examining facts. If we can face up to this we can question why today is the most excitoing time to be alive. We can recoginise that 3 generation – grandparent parents and youth – are determining whetehre our species will be sustainable. Tgis will need some collaborative creativity the like of which the wold ///modern media tells us the world has not seen very often.

 

 

In compiling this first edition of world record job creators we confess a  value bias to the perspective of English and Chinese speaking youth we will dare to search out possibilities. We also offer at least 20 companion Economist co-blogs so that parents and youth can join in te search for sustainability possibilities from every hemisphere and culture.

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.

THE NEW 'NATURAL RESOURCE'

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.

'100 MILLION NEW JOBS'

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.

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.
