jack ma- when i first studied (e)commerce in states i was surprised to find that each market was dominated by 2 or 3 manufacturers- i decided to design china ecommerce to maxise small enterprise suppliers and local jobs

.ying lowrey is tsinghua's professor of small enterprises- her book alibaba way is eyeopening:

foreword by nobel economist edmund phelps, columbia....Alibaba uses information technology to enable mass innovation to flourish.and to improve the lives of the people

the wicked problem of missing curricula youth most need- as jack says this is a huge problem; correspondenmce case posted may 2018: moreover we have atended many world bank youth summits where missing curricula have been pitched and everyone cheered the value but getiing each different nation to newly cetrtify suc new learning is a fools erand
-here part of a specific example- do you know a missing peer to peer curricula that needs similar linking in

I am staying at brac in bangaldesh my favorite girls education network in the world as well as largest ngo in wortld and partnership networkwe will see dean of james grant school of public health at brac university tomorrow- do you still have any message you wanted passed to brac about the peer to peer adolescent health program you and lancet have been building? we are mainly working with brac's overall education director as specified directly by sir fazle abed when i met him in qatar 2017 - sir fazle kindly gave a lot of his time to remembrance parties of my dad norman macrae at the japan embassy in dhaka in 2012more generally brac and jack ma started fin tech partnership earlier this month with brac's BkashSMS in bangladesh but for s asia (the whole 2 billion of china's neigbors particularly poorest girls on china south and south westren borders), for sustainabiliuty generation to scale and gain from these 2 superstars we believe partnering relations will broaden into looking at skills education ; we will be trying to form team both on bangladesh and china side to monitor this however fast or slow it goesmostofa has been working on bangladesh side for very long time- he also worked with modjtabia sadria then at aga khan in london while they were in london at time muhammad yunus was at his social business peak ; i believe modjtabia is now back in iran after some years with paul at monash? ( i didnt get to pauls grn summit in jordan 2006; i believe sadria did; i note that jack ma just made donation to queen of jordans education fund)

we are trying to invite any university student to form a club to see where is the nexus between what students most want to study practically and training that sir fazle and jack ma could mooc or otherwise maximally distribute to benefit livelihoods- togther the names of jack ma and sir fazle can be a top 100 web and top 1 web for open action learning- in branding terms this is easy as long as we quickly get all best friends of ma and abed signed up at one launch summit blessed by china and on the road to ma's sponsorship of huge expo at tokyo olympics

after 8 visits to beijing i am reasonably confident that we can get as much additional support as we want from tsinghua university in beijing (over there they know thgere are half a billion undre 30s and that china cant afford any youth left legless by mismatch between jobs and what colleges like examining-- ) additionally tsinghua with aiib is heavily into belt road pitches to india this year so education can be 2 for 1 so to speak
as long as both jack ma and sir fazle have approved a subject area as being one that needs development in this type 2 pee to peer or apprentice mode i believe we can help scale missing curricula

as you think you know i first met pauil komesdroff in 2004- i love everything he was trying to create volunteer expereinces abroad around monash and medics and cultural/arts translators;I hope we can find the right way to linkin monash as this idea gains momentum

ALIBABA BACKS NEW RESEARCH PROGRAM TO ADDRESS DIGITAL CHALLENGES
JENNY W. HSU | JUNE 27, 2018

SHARE THIS ARTICLE
Alibaba Group this week formed the Luohan Academy, a global research program that aims to address the emerging economic consequences and social disruptions of a digital economy.
“Luohan” is a Buddhist term for “perfected beings,” or “those who have achieved nirvana.” In the Chinese language, it is often used to describe “those with extraordinary skills and talent.”
True to its moniker, the academy has attracted a lineup of 15 of the world’s leading thinkers and researchers. They include six Nobel Laureates, as well as renowned economists, social scientists, tech pioneers and professors from prestigious higher learning institutes, such as Harvard University, Princeton University, the University of California, Berkeley, Columbia University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York University and China’s Tsinghua University.
At the academy’s launch event, Alibaba Executive Chairman and founder Jack Ma said Alibaba has the “responsibility to use our resources, technology, people and everything we have to help the world embrace the change and solve the challenges.”
“If we don’t pay attention to the technology revolution, it will cause a social revolution, especially that this technology is coming in a such huge wave that is changing every aspect of human lives,” he said to the researchers at a private meeting held at Alibaba’s global headquarters in Hangzhou.
Ma, an English teacher turned entrepreneur, has maintained a lifelong passion for education, innovation, problem solving and working with individuals who share the same passion. In fact, the 18 original partners who created Alibaba with Ma nearly 19 years ago are known as the 18 luohans.

The launch of the Academy follows the establishment of another global research program—the DAMO Academy—in October last year.  While DAMO focuses on the developing the most cutting-edge technologies such as machine learning, robotics, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence to fulfill Alibaba’s commitment to serve two billion customers and create 100 million jobs in 20 years, Luohan’s purpose is to study the implications of such technology advancement and “build an inclusive community for systemic and in-depth research,” the company said.
The academy also seeks to discuss questions such as how societies can harness the power of technology while ensuring a fair distribution of power, what the future of work and leisure are, what the appropriate regulations and politics to foster fair competition without impeding innovation are and how digital technology can contribute to a greener planet.
“We are living through a big watershed moment. We see big technological changes happening. We have to think about how our society will deal with these changes…how to use insights from tech and social science in order to achieve better outcome for humanity,” said Markus Brunnermeier, an economics professor at Princeton University.
The academy, headed by former head of strategy at Alibaba’s fintech arm, Ant Financial, Dr. Chen Long, will hold regular meetings and recruit additional researchers with different backgrounds to expand the academy’s scope.
During a two-day workshop, the academy’s committee discussed the potential negative impacts that digital technology has on the economy, job replacements, platform governance, the future financial infrastructure, as well as hot topics, such as privacy protection and how to keep the use of data in check. The Academy will produce an annual white paper to present its findings.
“New technologies are revolutionizing economic growth. New platforms keep emerging with innovative operating models. This completely overhauls our understanding on corporations,” said Wei Xiong, a professor of finance at Princeton University.
“As many platform companies are cross-industry, which is a challenge for regulations and laws to keep up, this makes it a long-standing issue in the future,” he added.
