In my life time i dont expect there to be more heroic stories than those on how Babgladesh and China have developed- and now offer colaboration invitations to milennials as the sustainability generation. C&B started their huge leaps early in 1970s , both changed their valuation of women, but China's story includes inward investment (by 1970s the wporld's 3rd richest financial netwpok) while Bangaldesh was developed starting with less resources than any 100 million person nation,,,,

You could say the adult life of my father , The Economist's Norman Macrae, came full circle at Bay Of Bengal's nations. He had spent his last day as a teenager navigating airplanes allied bomber command Burma. His last public birthday party was with Muhammad Yunus in 2008. There we launched sampling of 2000 of Yunus books on Social Busienss and that summer another 10000 youtube dvds made with Yunus and all his founders- at their peak celebration- Nobel Judges were in Dhaka (as was the larget single gathering I have ever seen of major corporate CEOs partnerining one civil society network. They were all there to celebrate open Yunus museum (and extension of the library Yunus kept at Grameen banks with about 30 global awards hung up on a wall of celebration. The Nobel Judges also hosted a seminar to make the point thattheye were also to celebrate the resileinece of bnagladesh girls and boys as well as women empowered nation buildin. Bangla was then in its 37th year from 1971 startup as 8th largest and number 1 poorest population. The subcontinet of India ruled by British Empire being home to quarter of the world's population. This was something my maternal grandfather sir ken kemp knew a lot about - as chief justice mumbai he dialogued with Gandhi for 25 years before writing up the elgalese of Independence. Sir Ken had no idea that the partitioning was about to be ruled.
Father knew Bangladeshi's as extremely hardworking - they had got the shirt sr=traw of every dynamic of british empire. Suddenly at 1947 Britain partitioned independence with West Pakistan colonising the muslims in the Bay of Bengal in spite of 1000+ miles of india in between. Worse hat had been Asia's greatest superport was nw India's - esentialy Bangaldesh was cut off from ocean world trade routes and surrounded by hostile land neigbors.
Dad died about 2 yeras after hosting Yunsu and 40 guests at Royal Automonbile Club but Glasgiw University took up the baton connecting archives of 3 peoples works - adma smith scholars, dad's and yunus. I went on ti visit Bamgaldesh 16 time ofuen with young journalists. These were my 35 to 50th trips to Asia having first worked on market redearch projects fro Unilevel Indonesia 1982 and much of SE Asia through the rest of the 20th C. I was to find that it wasdn't Yunus that first chnaged wedtern aid but Fazle Abed -www.abedmooc.com . Nonethe lesd ans someone who has spent my life trying to get the most joyful stories into media, Ilearnt a hot- and i became ever more urgetly convinced that if we fail to help mil;lennails end poverty then our species will fail all of sustainabiloty's test before the end of the 21st C.
Oddly all of my father's resaerch and work at The Economist can be read as escaping exrtinction. He had personally escaped in world war 2, and soon after being hired by tyhe Economist he met von neumann in princeton. Neumann asked dad to teach economic journalists probaly the greatest survey question of all- what goods will peoples unite with 100 ties moire technolgy per decade. Both neuman and father were too well awarre that fast accelerating tech can only have one of 2 opposite end games - orwell had already written up the negative secnario- join us in humaniyty's greatest leaps beoynd extinction - now the 2020s is proving to be ultimate test of huan intel and love.
Bangladesh drew one of the shortest straws of colonisation after being colonised by brits to 1946; another 25 years being colonised by (west) pakistan - colonial world trade wasn't organised to the colonies benefits-
if a martian orbited round earth, he would be shocked how illogical many locations (or lack thereof) of ports and railways are. The good bews is China's XI Jinping is inviting peoples across hemispheres to pay the most valuable trading game ever sustaining BELT ROAD IMAGINATION- help change learning all about this at BRI.school
perhaps its no surprise that one of the greatest superport opportunities in the world today is the coastal belt bangladesh occupies- a superport at cox's bazaar could if designed with china india and myanmar give bangladesh peoples a huge leap forward and benefit the peoples of the border areas with myanmar; china's belt road is already restoring win-win trades across the europe (med sea) suez djibouti-uae - pakistan coast at Gwadar -where would india like to join in; sri lanka is alread a big part of Belt Road Imagination
if you go east of china on a similar latitude to bangaldesh's coastline you would reach mexico, which could soon have the largest ports in the americas- psst dont tell trump but nobody could be doing a better job of marketing china and mexicos mutual win-wins

xWho are the world's top 10 job creators and what distinctive roles do they play so that all their alumni can win-win? My assumption since first meeting Dr Yunus in 2007 is he is a top 10 job creator and at any one time he links in hundreds of concepts that most excite youth with particular sustainability impact on girls, mothers, families in world's poorest villages (ie without infrastructure like energy, running water, etc). Note the world bank launches open education campus next month- its is urgent we identify top 10 job creators and ensure their knowhow and alumni networks linkin. Search MOOCYUNUS for dr yunus advocacy of this idea spriing 2013 at skoll world championships chris https://yunusasia.ning.com/
Bangladesh has been world's meta-hub of excellence for optimising sustainability economics of communities since birth of nation in 1971, and since 1996 in mobilising youth's heroic goals united by human race to End Poverty. Since 2005 With Paris, Bangladesh has pioneered the most exciting partnerships using Social Business Models. These map Entrepreneurial Revolution networks beyond 20th C privatization structures. BUT today's worldwide financial crisis requires resolution of professions and political constitutions beyond the dismal 20th C dynamics of externalization
Biggest superport opportunities to 2025 could be:South Asia Cox's Bazaar - needed to help half a millennum of poverty compounded by empire colonisation all along the south coast of Eurasia…Continue
