100 greatest friends of china and sustainable youth worldwide

You havent lived if you havent tried open space - a way of organisiing meetings so that everyone produces however many people turn up. Good news is open space is proven for 9 year olds up-(like any core human process there may be grades of experience though like the net this is one of those ways to action learn that peeks in youth not in elder age. Collaboration Cafe http://collaborationcafe.tv  is the simplest 1 hour version of open space - rsvp if you are a facilitator and want to know what we cut out of a process that is most fun when people come from around the world to share an annual 3 day networking reunion or to innovate a solution in a people summit that world leaders cant from ordinary meeting processes
In a place (youth or adult) where you have a 1 hour break - cc is easy peasy at the invitation process stage. So teachers can just let children use a notceboard (or a screen saver and internal email ) to announce this circular discussion topic will happen- please come only if the topic interests you; kids who already do something on this topic will provide examples, then everyone can joyfully question how to join in. Best circles have no teachers in them though what you can do in large spaces in a school is runj many circle discussions at the same time place - and teachers could just be there to observe much like they might in a crowded playground
if you are going to use CC's to mobilise a capital century to join in sme extraordinary opportunity like doubling knowledge every year on how to nhelp nmake this African century - the part that becoems difficult is the invitation - below's an example if how I ntry and invite washingtin Dc to join up - of course I am delighted to get advice opn how to improve such an invite (or indeed join a school lunch hour of collaboration cafes so that young folk including my early-teen daughter www.isabellawm.com can show me how much better they are at this than I am)

Hi Nii -if only we could linkin mutual friends  AN EK GA HG JR JT KJ LHT LW MG NM PP SV TR

 

AC - DC

 

How about starting series of http://collaborationcafe.tv in DC ..   to energise optimistic connecting people as knowledge-action  workers who want to be collaboration entrepreneurs (a species my dad http://www.worldeconomist.net/  diarised over 40 years at The Economist.   Back in 1984 as first journalists of the internet, dad and I mapped how exciting 2010s can be as worldentrepreneur networks double focused knowledge-sharing annually around life-shaping goals

 

I am a system researcher and designer which means I am not a practice expert in any of the most vital human goals (whose determination by 2020 can make 2010s netgens "most exciting decade"  Yunus 2050 person bookclub ) Here are a few ideas (and people) in case some of these are a best first focus for a coffee debate (love to start with what you want to do, but these are new year action contexts my mind is mapping and which $300000 of social business loans from my father's  estate has started to structure with some advice fro muhammad yunus and microcreditsummit and social business summit leaders and http://www.the-hub.net/

 

0 Leadership Quests : eg by writing cheeky letters round DC to whomever I hear to have new funds (eg shareout of G20's half billion fund) to social (busieness ) entrpreneurs :  ask to partner in sharing open knowledge with deep practice networks my friends or I have inspected on the ground 

 

1 Are you an Editorial Guides to African Century

I would like to see a sub-editorial board  "African Century" of the new journal of social business (more in footnote) my dad's estate has started with a social busiess loan under the expert stewardship of muhammad yunus 3 partners in scotland - 2 univesrities and the centre for development scotland a charity that a 30 year long frind and compatriot of dr yunus started about 15 years ago. My last full year in Lodon was 2005 where I was delegated to atend the main make poverty history meetings and the African commission report was one of the main suposed contexts. I discovered to my chagrin that this was a movement dominated by top-down NGOs and that they were part of the problem. Ever since I have been trying to invest in bottom-up connections and open spaces. For example I made loans to 24 weeks of open space in london summer 2007 where I thought africa networks would linkin. Instead I learnt from Lesley Williams that grassroots African networks wanted to make a fresh start and would not trust people like me directly. Net-Net:  the 2 people who are already invited to form the African Century sub-board are Lesley Williams and Ingrid Munro. I suggest they might also choose someone from

  •  http://www.microloanfoundation.org/  - mainly a malawi-leading microcredit funded as a SB out of london but with links into MIT, and which has sent delegates both to my dad's life remebrance partsy at The Economist and yunus 69th borthdyday wishes dialogue.
  • The montfort plan - a trilogy of books of a Georgetown-Spaniard whose serach began with 100 interview of microfinance economists on ideas to move part of the world bank's headquarters to sub-saharan africa.

If 1 interests you its mainly a case of checking that what you want to connect with african century has enough win-wins with Lesley and more widely her connections with other hub leaders of which the two I know are: wordlwide founder Jonathan and DC mobiliser Alex

 

2 PUBLISHER OF CONSIDER BANGLADESH, KENYA AND ...

A pattern i want to explore is what the net generation can learn from the first 40 years of the grassroots economics nation of Bangladesh - see consider bangladesh attached; and what African world in particular can learn from Kenya. To advance this pattern I wish to invest in publication of a Consider Kenya leaflet similar to the consider Bangaldesh one ; and then twin leaflets between any other african country and kenya. Ultimately I will try to get out of teh way of such a publication series (so that it is led out of africa with eg Leseyian values) but I do want to hit certain magic moments when these consider african century elaflets can be viralised

 

2A when yunus testifies to us congress as genius economist - something (as announced in consider bangladesh) that will happen in 2011 peobaly late spring ; 2b microcreditsummmit nov 2011 with queen sofia continuing her africa and s.hemisphere focus on knowledge-doubling annually (dare britain join in summer 2012 as swansong to our dear queen of commonwealth.. )

 

2B its my belief that the best thing out of usa for the world : when post-presidency obama turns worldwide presidential summit of entrepreneurship to something much more grassrooted than the clinton global initiative; demonstrate kenya as a grassroots partners laboratory to everything hi-tech partners can mobilise the same way yunus is forming sustainability world trades with bangladesh-  I am interested in connecting below the radar any networks that might empower obama towards such a future; and see the publishing genre of Consider African nations racing to join in African Century as a catalytic mecahnism integrated by the-hub and sub-networks and emerging partners in peoples tv  

 Nearly Done : I am old enough to remember the marketing profession when the prime duty of te marketer was to throw up several concepts that entrepreneurs could test small and see which one many different constituencies grabbed at the same time as a multi-win way of progressing the biggest goals we could dream of realising with all tye urgency that individual lifetime missions can focus

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.

 

 

 

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.
