NYT: International trade with Russia boomed this year

Updated: 2 months, 21 days, 22 hours, 25 minutes, 40 seconds ago

Unless we are bold enough to face harsh realities and seek collaborative solutions; the lollipopians can hide under blankets of political correctness, while ‘seek and destroy’ doctrine gets ready for a diaper-change. The Western Economies are struggling to save themselves from imploding from inside or exploding from outside, the restless citizenry now slightly smarter and becoming a challenging threat to local leaderships. Across the G20, old thinking is being thrown out of the window while social crises are on the rise. Study deeply the root cause.

The 4B factor; asFour Billion on the march; a billion displaced due to pandemic, a billion replaced due to technology, a billion misplaced in wrong jobs now a billion on starvation-watch. Today, digitally connected this is now the biggest force of global opinion ever assembled in the history of civilization. Imagine the power and energy behind.

Economy is now a number one issue: However, there is no political power unless there is a parallel economic power; after all, there cannot be any economic power without entrepreneurial job-creator-mindset power. Proof of performance is now mandatory, entrepreneurial skill sets a necessity and time running out. Get ready for evaluations.

Fact: No other time in the history of humankind, today, the largest ever combined populace, and ever so interconnected global opinion will hold responsible, the so few ever so disconnected with truth and for bringing humankind so close to a nuclear dystopia.

Fact: So long there is NO clear agenda and active-mechanism on recognizing the sum total of all the small medium business economies of the G20 nations as the largest contributor of taxes all the G20 nations combined and hence lack of such understanding causing local grassroots prosperity disruptions amongst all free economies of G20.

Fact: Today, Mobilization of national SME economies in free economy within G20 still an out of reach science for the leading economic development teams and therefore national level up-skilling of exporters and re-skilling of manufacturers to embrace global exportability still missing as top agenda from G20

Fact: If elections of UK, Brazil and USA already represent mega-shifts of minds today; the global imbalances already point to new thinking, while the lingering silence and absence of hardcore programs to adjust will only further strangle economic survival. Where is the new narrative to directly face the crisis; when answers are not hidden in the wars but open dialogues?

The Difficult Questions: Why are nations intoxicated in joy over the success and popularity of their own “national opinion”, while having just an opposite “global opinion” on the world stage? Which nation is capable of mobilizing its hidden national entrepreneurialism and providing a future for the next generation? When Political science starts morphing into becoming economic science, when the power of a nation NOT measured by their hard or soft power but by their levels of skilled citizenry capable of standing up to global age competitiveness, where are the skills tests?  Why it will not be the sudden arrival of the long awaited Fourth Industrial Revolution; but the surprised arrival of the First Industrial Revolution of the Mind. Study deeply how the mind is opening up and responding to creative entrepreneurial issues, the old concept already dead, now replaced with new thinking. Why SME economies and national mobilization of entrepreneurialism both will provide a wider base to immediately stabilize local citizenry, but how and why?

A world of too many SME studies: There are dozens of laboriously detailed studies on economic numbers on SME affairs around the free world conducted during the last few years. Like watching a movie on Tarzan; where the filming is all about precise measurements of his bow, arrow, knife and underwear, but nothing about who he is, where he came from, how he became Tarzan, why loved by animals, and why is Jane chasing him and why he is called, the King of the Jungle?

Notice how these studies do not refer to any such triangulations on entrepreneurialism. Is it because of the lack of entrepreneurialism amongst the developing teams on SME studies? However here, this narrative is an advanced level entrepreneurial response. Mostly, SME studies conducted are purely academic, critically lacking entrepreneurial job creator mindsets, hence different and disconnected narratives. Without reference on why entrepreneurialism can create new SME economic powers, efficiencies with new global-age ideas with digital platforms, or how SME sectors will grow and be guided by entrepreneurial job creator mindsets. Unless such narratives are not clearly understood by the ruling economic intelligentsia little or nothing will be achieved. Check out the last 100 such studies during the last decade.

Myopic localization must reconnect with nouveau-globalization: Unless, global-age centricity is defined as critically essential, economic development, now demanding special global-age skills to solve issues of our new digitalized world of future, trades in harmony for common good and mutual prosperity. The traffic jams of inflations; recessions and depressions only demand realistic value creation economies, needed are uplifts of small medium business economies, entrepreneurialism of men and women and emerging youth, massive disruption of education to contain already economic damage by academic mindset and create bold pragmatic curriculum to create new global-age business minded job creator mindset to develop the future, to create real commerce with real jobs.

Behold the new revolution, new elections and new leaderships, the new assemblies of  “Work + Office + Health + Money + Politics + Future “clash with “AI + AR + VR + Remote + Zoom” prepare for the big surprises within the next hundred days. Meritocracies must arise and face truth; bureaucracies must step aside and apologize. The populace of the world, awakened; now seeking smarter minds for the smarter future, collaborative synthesizing needed for a diverse tolerant society, over seek and destroy doctrine.

The 50/50 Factor: Unless there is a balance between job seeker mindset and job creator mindsets economic development is just a children’s game of numbers and colorful post-it-notes. Unless there is full acceptance that 50% office workers are not coming back and 50% talent is now gone remote, the global HR movements will never recover. Unless there is acceptance of ‘population-rich-nations’ currently leading charge, and that ‘knowledge-rich-nations’ try to collaborate, otherwise 50% of Western economies will remain dark. Unless national mobilization of entrepreneurialism deployed as constant learning, constant disruption, constant advancements, constant dialogues silence will strangle economies

The G20 Test Alert: How long does it take to test local economic development teams; what does it take to build hard core capability on creating, building, fostering small medium business economies? LinkedIn can instantly assist as each person working on any economic development programs in various Ministries, Trade Groups, Chambers across the world, already have their individual profiles detailed. When nations are sinking, economic leadership must be super skilled and trained as specialists but not as novice observers. Just check profiles on LinkedIn, anywhere across the world.

What a difference a week makes? Assessing how long it will take to fill in the missing blanks, up-skilling of national economic development teams to become sharper developers is critically essential. What will a weeklong of testing achieve proving all of the above? How long does it take to decipher a national program and place 10K to 100K SME on digital platforms to start up skilling and re-skilling vertical sectors? Normally, an up-skilled team can achieve all this within 100 days, so what is stopping and who is blocking? 

National Mobilization of Entrepreneurialism: How to uplift small medium business economy and start a greening and entrepreneurial journey. The Qualification Criteria: The difficult questions for national leadership on economic development

Are there qualifiers: Are there 10K or 1000K SME within a nation qualified for up-skilling for exportability? Are vertical sectors ready for mobilization of entrepreneurialism on digital platforms? Are chambers and associations skilled enough on such SME uplifts and exportability? Are there harmonious efforts to uplift women entrepreneurs on the national stage? Are the frontline economic development teams up-skilled enough for such programs?

Are there special needs: Most nations already have enough innovations, but lacking commercialization, most overqualified in their crafts but seriously lacking the image and right business directions, most incubators cannot help and eventually exhausted like real estate projects, most economical development programs are paper-flow issues without entrepreneurial touch

Are there wings of economies: Fact: The world can easily absorb unlimited exportable ideas in unlimited vertical markets. Fact: The well-designed innovative ideas are worthy of such additional quadrupled volumes. Fact: The entrepreneurial and dormant talents of a nation are capable of such tasks. Fact: The new global age skills, knowledge and execution are now the missing links

The transformation timelines: It takes 10 days to firm-up policies to start a SME sector digitization program. It takes 100 days to mobilize and place 1000 to 100,000 SME on digital platforms. It takes 1000 days to have a bouncing economic development and global activities.

The mental preparedness timelines: It takes 1000 days to become a top class economic development game player. It takes 100 days for deep immersion to become champion on digital transformations. It takes 10 days of intense workshops to articulate of such senior level discussions

The economic effect timelines: It takes 1000 days to quadruple their exportability and up-skilling as a new game changer. It takes 100 days to uplift 10K to 100K SME and profile them on digital platforms. It takes 10 days to structure digital formats for SME sectors in desired regions.

Portability of Industrial Plants; brought nations to their knees, will they ever stand up again? Exportability of Democracy; brought tribalism to its own streets. Will it ever fix the local-social-crisis? Adaptability to swim within the future; will there be a rise to catch-up with global speed, trends for rapid growth? Will new global age thinking arrive at Cabinets to save national productivity?

Power of invisible algorithms; when national leadership simply is not skilled enough to question anything on mystery of economic numbers, is there any need to become master crypto-coder or what is required is new realization on how economies are already high-jacked in daylight. Which financial, academic or institutional body is ready to engage to solve such challenges of basic math? Why is there silence on balanced budgets and economic expenditures?

Broomsticks Flying: When people gather, work appears, and people need state; state needs ruler, and ruler needs laws, because laws govern equally and grassroots prosperity appears. Sometimes, rulers become their own state, the state ignores laws and people are treated as enemies. Work disappears and chaos emerges. Witchcrafts and broomsticks appear.

Missing from action is really the African continent: The Group of Twenty (G20) is an informal forum in which the world’s major economies discuss global financial and development issues. The G20 is made up of 19 countries and the European Union. The 19 countries are Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Since December 1st, 2021, Indonesia holds the Presidency of the G20, which is annually rotated amongst its members. A great effort indeed, however, global goals must be for global common good. In time soon, Africa will play a big role in such circles. Observe how developing nations are adjusting fast. Study Expothon on Google and how special events will fold in the coming months.

Conclusion: A brighter future awaits; Dive deep into futurism but not like an AI Sniper-Dog Robot, but like a common human being searching for common good and solutions for humankind. The issues of climate change and environment are only solved when grassroots prosperity provides full stomach to figure out the working of minds and acquire truthful clarity of common good, otherwise such notions are just expensive global advertising campaigns of smoke and mirrors. National mobilization of entrepreneurialism will fix 50% of the problem on a fast track-basis. The rest is easy
