consider the world of 1945 at war's end. the dismal -poverty controling- fact was that up to 80% of people had been excluded from the benefits of the age of humans and machines. this era had started out of glasgow 1760 by first engineer james watt and first moral world trade mapmaker adam smith. primarily two types of industrial revolution powers had been played out by men - the energy and communication powers of machines. unfortunately the 8 biggest empires -7 western and white, and Japan - had colonised other peoples through a mix of slavery, gunpower, genocide and controling other peoples lands and natural assets. Colonisers economic models were geared to advance the empire's home capitalists not sustain earth's global villages. In terms of ethnicities roughly speaking whites comprised 13% of peoples, Asians 65%, Africans 13% - to which could be added say 5% Latin Americans and 3% others.
Clearly? new economic models needed to be found but at the same time from 1945 humans needed the major economies to be rebooted. By 1962 The Economist reported an extraordinary possibility:
Japan had found two new economic models which thanks to American efforts South Korea and Taiwan were also using. There were win-win opportunities which might free all Asians who had been left out of productivity. Rural Keynesianism offered priority innovation networks for rural people connecting alumni of borlaug. Thanks to new engineers like Deming's fusion with oriental consciousness, there was a different way of celebrating engineers and infrastructures capable of building the biggest win-win trading ports ever imagined- map the capital belt road japan-korea-taiwan-hk-singapore and onwards You could say these offered systemic transformations of IR0*IR1*IR2 -agriculture, powers of energy and communications. One of The Economist Journalists had met John Von Neumann and became the biographer of a legacy which involved questioning the future apps of 100 times more analytic technology every decade through 1960s to 2020s planted around TWIN AI labs in stanford and MIT Boston. Soon Stanford alumni were proclaiming Moore Laws and the world's first regional lab of back from the future silicon valley.
In 1962 President Kennedy recognised the possibilities of Japan's new economic model for Asia Rising - couls America promote interdependence and help youth celebrate extraordinary change goals every decade the way the space race had branded the 1960s. Then Kennedy and Medgar Evers were assassinated. What happened next needs open questioning from every national viewpoing and since scots who have the longest worldwide action learning curve with machines are not recogbised as a nation - can we help to be true and fair mediators. The Economist became the world's first viewspaper by continuing to severely examine big-leaders everywhere - could these new economic models be pathways to helping every next child born thrive in the most remarkable era of human transformation , and how do we prevent the other systems possibility social-sci storytellers such as hg wells and george orwell warned as probable.
