Dear Friends of Love Washington DC and Hong Kong -references csis japan g20 sherpa debrief and us ambassador to hong kong after action debrief July 2019 - media questions firstname.lastname@example.org washington dc +1 240 316 8157 NormanMacrae foundation of journalistsforhumanity
I hugely enjoyed the diversity of what i thought both of these speakers said- especially "love hong kong"
My father's (Norman Macrae) life work at The Economist was about loving each others nations (their peoples next decade through each of the 0G to 5G decades set up by 1960 moon race and alumni Gordon Moores 100 fold AI promise multiplying exponentially over decades)
Would you have time for a quick meeting?
I realise the attached one-pager breaks every design law under the sun but in 2019's English speaking world its hard to summarise 100 optimistic ways into mapping how to love each others nations
If there is an explanation for my fathers work in globalising The Economist it is because as the son of a british embassy consular from a missionary scottish clan, he was home schooled as were maths and coding wizards like von neumann until his early teens -dad was also taught to write up a diary of the place he was in - if you think about how slow diplomatic communications were as a british consular in moscow of 1932 the diary approach (once a year returning to london to share it) had advantages of mediating depth compared with today's digital discourse
I understand story of The Economist's 2nd half of 20th C is incongruent with Mr Trump's washington 2019- Notwithstanding this, 2020 is the 10th anniversary of dad's parting so my family and friends will be bring out a game of cards - each with an extraordinary job creator like sir fazle abed at the epicentre of the billion poorest womens lives- i understand this search game is like valuing moral sentiments little more than a scottish dream of what death-of-distance economic mapmaking and multi-win trade and humanising AI can be all about. If privately you know anyone who might want to review my family's archives to see if there is any way to plant a little good with them please feel free to relay this mail
all errors are mine- not dad's not the people who's billion jobs creating stories i value most
PS as embassies & emperors celebrate: there is a reason why the score of ever tennis game starts at love all
norman macrae a few further bio details
Dad found himself age 19 navigating airplanes over burma, surviving ww2 being tutored by keynes, marrying daughter of sir kenneth kemp who wrote up the legalese of India's Independence after 20 years dialogue with gandhi in in mumbai , surveying in 1962 that his old enemy Japan was now helping far east islands rise with superb engineering (including better trains and microelectronic calculators) advances very much the opposite of the bureaucrats out of the EU- dad was the only journalist at messina in 1955, so he knew the founding fathers of Europe 2.0 personally- as far as the UK's good fortune went prince charles was at the british embassy in tokyo watching the olympics with the tev being personally installed by akio morita- would he please come and inward invest in Wales (it seems goodwill trade deals depend on emotionally happy circumstances in which leaders meet, at least i think that is what Japans G20 sherpa mentioned)
For someone determined to suggest good news futures, Japans rising suns mattered because two thirds of people are asians- and if technology if trillion times more ai is to go well the number 1 economic and united nations goal should be making every baby girl born great again (in terms of having a chance out of her community to thrive)
The history of paper money is quite a dismal one if you read all about it waiting for your next sortie in bomber command (fortunately the economist in 1943 had just published it centenary diary on related topics) - fast forward 40 years and this is one reason why out 1984 book the 2025 report hoped cryptocurrencies would be timed to maximum human good as indeed they have in one forgotten corner of the world - bangladesh brac bKash | Home - village women with no electricity grids and humid climates as men raced to the moos networked much more grounded solutions -whether they were south china or bangladeshi they needed Borlaugs localised rice science and oral rehydration to be action learned in primary schools. Fortunately founder of brac fazle abed was on his 3rd career in 1972- previously national ceo of shell oil and graduate of ship architecture out of adam smith's glasgow university- so he could linkin poorest villagers queries to the then top of Anglo-Dutch Industrial leadership
major partners of bkash are bill gates jack ma mit legatum and all the ngos that make BRAC the world's largest NGO and the first network in the world to sustain goals of the billion poorest women
Experiential learning is also discovered to be the key to nurturing tech genii like von neumann as well as to intergenerational family growth- and of course we have the tech to bring learning races round mother earth now if we could unite nations (or some cluster of the g20) in such a choice
