we welcome other nominations of (human values) intelligent media; here I try to recall ups and downs of the purpose of The Economist begun by my Diaspora Scot brother James Wilson. Here's Chatgpt opening summary of first 100 years of reporters living up to founders James Wilson Purpose. Soon after world war 2 my father Norman started corresponding with John Von Neumann who asked The Economist to continue his legacy - how could artificial intel support human intel. see also Einstein's parallel interviews with Gandhi and Freud.
My family's diaries offer a bit more nuance to chatgpt's additional note:
JAMES' VISIONS OF BIGGEST QUESTIONS TO MEDIATE OUT OF LONDON THEN EMPIRE WORLD's EPICENTRE -could a weekly newspaper help to end poverty and end hunger? - see centenary autobiography The Economist 1943-1843
did the young queen victoria want to help- for example would she stop English Empire starving the Irish even if this meant helping James remove half of parliamentarians who by 1843 were mainly supporting big land owners vested interests - see corn law
whilst there was sucess in ending the corn la- it was too late to prevent troubles between english and Irish that became some of the first micro-terrorist tragedies from 1970s onwards
victoria offered James a bigger challenge - to start a bank by and for the quarter of humans who live on the sub-continent of India - charter bank later standard chartered bank - this story is partly recalled here https://www.business-standard.com/article/current-affairs/from-hawick-to-hawick-the-story-of-the-economist-founder-james-wilson-121012001578_1.html
lets fast foeward back from the future of such worldwide tipping points as 2025-1993-1984-1963-1951-1945-1865=-1860-1843
I'll try and get chatgp4 to fill in some of this intergenerational jigsaw across mother earth - here are pieces of the economist's journey that interest me - for transparency sake please note my dad worked at The economist full time for 1958-1988- eg see this obit by the economist's long time science edutoir viscount matt ridley https://www.mattridley.co.uk/blog/death-of-a-great-optimist/
One of The economist's slogans is a severe "chat" contest with leaders: I find 7 wonders as integral to father's 40 teays of interviewing. They come from an unique experience from hus last year as teen - navigator allied bomber command burma world war 2 to being seconded by The Economust for a year to ny 1951 where dad became Von Neumann's main quizmaster of "what goods can humans unite wherever they have first access to 100 times more tech per decade?
