OH wxyZ -WE MAY NEVER GET DOWN AGAIN: what we knew about global viruses in 2005
we welcome ideas on zooms june 2020 -10th remembrance of dad norman macrae - chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk
June marks the 10 anniversary of death of my father Norman Macrae The Economist's entrepreneurial revolution and end poverty sub-editor. We are organising a zoom calendar. I have appended a short excerpt of The Economist's remembrance party.
Favorite events after his death-
the Japan Embassy in Dhaka and Open Society Laureate Sir Fazle Abed organised 2 dinner roundtables on the future of university and future of fintech -transforming education and health by 2025 was the core idea of my father and my 2025 report published in 1984 as timelines to sustainability opposite to orwell's end game

Adam Smith scholars held an event at Glasgow U aiming to celebrate bottom up entrepreneurs 250th year of man and machines started by smith and james watt in 1760 - an online catalogue of papers helped me learn a lot!

Dad had survived war as teen navigating raf planes over modernday myanmar- not to every politician's liking, he was always trying to roll back the traps across the old world continent caused primarily by britannia and japan's colonial era- father saw people like Soros and Gorbachev as huge heroes- one of dad's main retirement projects was the biography of John Von Neumann

Optimistic Rationalism is as vital in 2020 as any time in my memory.
sincerely, chris macrae washington dc +1 240 316 8157

2020s sdgs most exciting decade -
according to adam smith school of economics and humanities started 1760, at least 4 of sdg world's top 10 economists abed ma gandhi and brilliant have a lot in common- they all valued education and health as building economies not vice versa-all needed alumni to study borlaug app'd to rice science to end billion people famines across all of rural asia- furthermore, ma and abed - however much their life work focused on financing health and village markets value chains -wanted their legacy to include arts/sports for all- kobe.mba recommends you start up with cindy mi to make this connection- or global classroom twitter listings

17 sdgs first tour
Basic 6:
development of 8 billion humans begins and ends with 
how you design 
finance explains goal 1 poverty 
livelihood education goal 4

the 4 most basic community-grounding apps of your worldwide design of finance and  livelihood education are
health and safety goal 3
end hunger/famine- goal 2 - local food security

sanitation and water goal 6 

gender equality 5 - historically human strength impacted agricultural and industrial market  efficiency- cultures and history often made women underclasses - ie 4 billion people were less valued for their life's productive possibilities; this is one of the market (vale chain design) changes the age of trillion tomes moore tech (5G 2020s 4G 2010s 3G 2G 1G 1980s 0G 1970s)  than moon race (as breakthrough use of machine ai) needed to leapfrog with the way humans collaborated around machine intel and not juts machine power

they also explain the 2 meta-chinges drover of 1960-2030 tech how humans use artificial intelligence, and how we go beyond carbon chains in markets including energy and packaging eg reducing plastic

7 Energy (eg in industrial age markets of coal and steel as well as other natural resources); primarily G8 nations grew bigger and bigger empires designed to extract these resources from everywhere else- in so doing some of their people advanced at least 100 fold beyond subsistence- opportunity to innovate was also very unevenly distributed- even as some men landed on the moon in 1969 more than half of people had no access to electricity grids so eg only person to person communications- moores law timelined 1 trillion times more coms tech by 2030- sustainability would depend on how digital cooperation preferentially applied poorest

Goal 16 Peace/Justice it was known that the world wars were a single that 200 nations needed to mediate beyond the G8 world to value diversity and end inequalities- no peace could link places around the world including the bbc's Attenborough's 7 planets one world without redesigning the legislatures of 200 places and ending externalisation across borders the main driver of big get bigger emperors

Over 50 nations (small island developing nations) have huge water estates and small land to produce with - they depend on goal 14 knowledge.markets of life below water eg fish a product nature has always distributed in boundariless ways through oceans - remaps the 7 worlds ; precursor blue planet shows eg ending plastic essential

Over 25 nations have the opposite challenge- only knowledge of land markets  (goal 15) no ocean access- this accelerates many conflicts - eg 90% of world trade depends on shipping so these nations need infrastructure belt roads shared with neighboring nations if they are to participate in globalisation-some nations like the congo have the unfairest history of all- empires have exploited their natural resources while leaving their peoples no trading infrastructures other than those that the world's biggest corporations design for their extractive economic models including 90 day profiteering

Are the other goals actually jigsaw pieces in system integration of 5G to -0G world
goal 17 private and public partners fails to triangularise ngos etc who value the younger half of the world as every place's win-win currency 

11 Sustainable cities and communities
10 Reduced inequalities
9 Infrastructure, Innovation/Industry
8 Decent world and economic growth
12 responsible production and consu,ption - market media and
13 climate action - market governanace &

hoping to help connect every UNGA event ny sept 22-27

tell us connections you would like to share

here's an indicator of some of my family's and journalistsforhumanity most trusted friends work
I am in new york to try help make connections between 22 and 27 sept

0 we are benchmarking the world's number 1 investment partnerships in artificial intelligence (AI) - a debate my father mediated at The Economist from 1962- eg how does japan's 2nd richest man maso son connect the sdg generation with the world's leading investment partnerships in ai

one urgent thing: does mack have a lunchtime free that i can offer to the professor i know from CKGSB ny branch- this is the college system founded by hong kong's richest man- among key peoples ideas it represents are kissinger's- and as i have mentioned kissinger 30 year old chinese american practice network committee100 is led by yo yo ma the cellist who also organises silk road musician events out of harvard

2 are you staging or attending any events that I can join in? 

3 i have quite a lot of sdg news- it might be best if we all met briefly as early as possible to understand what different countries are bringing- for example in geneva UN this well i found out that through the bbc britain is leading the end plastic component of the ocean-climate goals  (David Attenborough blue planet stories including fisk being killed by plastic and corals being bleached reached 1 billion people -although intended as broadcast series- it went viral on youth mobiles including quarter billion chinese) - there is a new series on how sustainable will natore be on each of earth's 7 major continents launching october; I am working with the studio producer on a leaflet making davd attenborough one of millennials top 20 heroes; i went to the same school as david attenborough son) and a lot of the UNGA reasons for emphasis on the climate goals including the needs of the 50 plus small island developing nations whose large ocean fronts has made them vulnerable like the bahamas- at the moment these states are also being punished by global finance (after 9/11 it was decided that derisking policies started withdrawing island states from full integration in electronic systems as a way to counter money laundering)- i have also been given the name of the person heading british un missions in new york- i wonder if there is a way to connect her with japan's corresponding person  - as you see from my earlier reporting japan richest ma founder of uniqlo has started to join ILO and other efforts to change value chain of fashion garment workers- this is the most pivotal of all changes connecting the olympics and how artistic celebrities impact  fashion markets  - i met the editor of global-geneva a glossy magazine asking how will geneva hub change partnerships around the world- should i be connecting this editor with mack- is music for sdgs a story geneva needs to partner with

4 i would be interested in whether we should be asking the sherpa of japan g20 or of ticad for a meeting to understand what they want to connect at the un and through continuing events -eg what did mack see as apec opportunity and does mack see any particular connections with vincent changs work- i know the latin american who organises wall streets main fund for poverty in latin america and is in columbia's engineering department- do any of you wish to meet camilo of http://www.imperativefund.com 

5 i will be arranging boston visit october to ezra vogel - america's number 1 academic on why the world needs china and japan to trust each other; this monday i have lunch with amitav acharya who asked me to get a signed copy of vogels book- their ideas on supporting asian youth connect futures are similar and amitav helps schwarmans 3 colleges - mit tsinghua oxford do this  (nyu has a 100 mn dollar partnership with shanghai - i wonder if this is one of the areas aya could be building)

5a i have a new contact with india networks leading corporate change- their main european hub is vienna which is where vincent chang's and world bank jim kim's friend ban ki moon is hq'd

6 i welcome hearing any of your news - any way of communicating you suggest- 

thanks chris +1 240 316 8157
