** following his father who worked for british diplomatic services around embassies in midst of conflict - eg mostow of stalin 1934, last adriatic port jews used to escape hitler 1938 )-during this quarter dad concluded that world wars root cause was the history of empires like britain and japan which had trapped most peoples in poverty, to end war he wanted to mediated loving each other's places, ;peoples and especially children

Before we get to the list of miracles look at what has happened to japan in the fisrt year(s) of its new reiwa emperor era- planned was 40 million tourists with olympics ganes as peace-loving centrepiece ; apart from the olympic most tourism celebrated comunity hosts sme busienesses- all being decimated by the virus; japan is uniquely interesting as a nation as unlike other places run by a majority of elders its recruiting youth from other countries to deliver many of its frontline logistics services- this pan asean development plan has also been shattered; since japan loves sports for the right reason - community building not just big corporate noise - gthe ebst outcome would be the olympics beged asians to tale a majoity share of running futire olympics- this would be good for all four of the next hosts if the mayors of tokyo beijing milan and paris chatted about it- and it would be a great opportutity for womens lives matter to exorciose all the sexual predators - and ban ki-moon who is in the middle of 3 world chnaing movement cliate adatoability, curriculum of worldwide youth and teachers civic engagement , ethics dorectirate of teh olympocs could appoint a supersgtar panel of lives matter - eg the wike of kobe (mo0re at www.kobe.mba), manny pacquaio, and since tennis has always been the emeperor family's facoriote sport as well some uk royals, why not let japan and wimbledon select which tennis superstars can bridge retoremengt with linking in youth as the sddg generation.....

Norman Macrae, having survived teenage navigation of RAF planes bomber command world war 2 over modern-day myanmar/bangladesh, joined The Economist in 1949, and retired as the deputy editor of what he called "the world's favourite viewspaper" in 1988. During that time, he wrote extensively on the future of society and the impact of technology. Norman foresaw species sustainability as being determined by post-colonial and virtual mapmaking- 5G 4G 3G 2G 1G 0G if 60s tech could race to moon and Moore alumni promised 100 times more machine intel every decade TO 2025, let's end poverty mediating/educating a world of loving each others' children- so that wherever the next millennials girl is born she enjoys great chance to thrive.

Soon Norman was celebrating his wartime enemy's rising engineers and win-win sme supply chains across far east and very concerned that tod down constitutions english speaking nations led by political bureaucrats wasn't fit for entrepreneurial revolution-he co-opted a young romani prodi to translate Economist 1976 ER survey into multilingual formats

Amongst some of his more outlandish claims: that governments would not only reverse the nationalisation process and denationalise formerly private industries, but would also sell industries and services that had been state operated for so long that it seemed impossible that they could be run by private companies. A pioneer before the pioneers, Macrae imagined privatised and competing telecommunications and utility companies improving service levels and reducing prices.

When others saw arms build-ups as heralding World War III, Macrae predicted the fall of the Berlin Wall by the end of the 1980's.

normanmacrae.net - my father norman macrae order of the rising sun.  signed library in the economist was limited to one survey a year and then only from his 17th year at the journal- it began with consider japan 1962 and continued to review how to reverse across asia's two thirds of humanity how to reverse the old world colonial mess led by the world's worst ever corporation the east india company, evil capitalism out of london that insisted the far east accept opium as a currency- from 1964 prince charles was europe's first leader to celebrate relations with japan both at royal family levels and in inviting sony to inward invest

if the west had helped japan rebuild trust across those people it hurt up to 1945, adam smiths dream that the best of humans and machines could go west of scotland through usa and asia as an opposite world trade model to the east india company could have restarted at the same tine as the world leapt forward with 100 times moore tech each decade after the moon race decade to these 2020s

those who have spent time reading smith will know that as soon as he saw james watt first engines in the world he spent the rest of his life mediating the united states of english speakers; in his time scotland, ireland, and english royalty if they did not want to go the way of french royalty should all want to be states of a union led out of philadelphia- there was only one condition- the unions constitution should not only repeal slavery but recompense every owner of a business model -eg plantations- which depended on slavery or low cost labor- imagine smithian economics linking in scots irish new england boston new amsterdam/york philadelphia- continuing down us east coastal belt across georgia, to southern belt, alabama and french purchase louisana up the heartland to the great lakes across to west coast usa to hawaii and then to japan and through to asians two thirds of humans at the mid east landbridge through to africa as well as west asia bridge at turkey to south est and central europe- at some stage the northern roof of the old world ie russia could have become much more like canada because of a united asia as well as a united america- united around all lives matter- interestingly the conscious natural movements of the east have far less problems with skin color; and unlike golden rule religions are grounded in community/natural observation

from my sample of 1 being among 7.5 billion.   asians have inspired me to celebrate all lives matter far more than any western movement i have been able to search as a diaspora scottish child growing up in the london of the 1950s
of course i would love to hear what cultures help you translate all lives matte everywhere you connect chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk -scots as a majority diaspora nation are eternally optimistic some would say naive- why not celebrate the best of all peoples skins languages genders homeland duversities not the least common denominator

thank you abe and  i expect i had much more to learn than my any english report of mine can convey

  1. thank you abe, from csis economist goodman - Assessing Abe’s Economic Statecraft

    Read Online
    SIMON SAYS, AUGUST 2020
    By Matthew P. Goodman

    Just days after setting the record for longest consecutive term as Japan’s prime minister, Shinzo Abe announced on August 28 that he was resigning on grounds of poor health. Beyond its durability, Abe’s term may be remembered mainly for its disappointments: his failure to pull the Japanese economy out of its decades-long torpor, to achieve his dream of amending Japan’s constitution, to resolve tensions with neighbors in Northeast Asia. But in one area Abe deserves better marks from historians: his economic statecraft in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

    Abe came back into office in late 2012 determined to avoid the mistakes of his first, aborted term as prime minister in 2006-2007. In that earlier stint, Abe had shown virtually no interest in economics, putting his own constitutional-reform ambitions over the bread-and-butter concerns of most Japanese citizens. Abe 2.0 would not make the same mistake, announcing a three-point economic revitalization plan dubbed “Abenomics” by Japanese commentators.

    Abenomics was well conceived but unevenly implemented. It consisted of “three arrows” aimed at prodding Japanese growth and productivity: aggressive monetary easing, accommodative fiscal policy, and structural reform. Abe did well on the first arrow, appointing a new governor of the Bank of Japan, Haruhiko Kuroda, who made clear he would keep the monetary taps open until deflation was defeated. The fiscal policy record was more mixed, as repeated stimulus packages were undermined by two poorly handled consumption tax hikes. Most disappointing was the third arrow, as many of Abe’s promising structural reform initiatives, from “womenomics” to corporate governance reform, got bogged down by entrenched interests. part 2...continued

  2. To be fair, Abe’s domestic economic program faced massive headwinds caused by Japan’s daunting “3D” challenges: deflation, debt, and—most intractable of all—demographics. With the country’s aging population set to drop from 128 million at its peak in 2010 to 87 million by 2060, it would take a miracle of enhanced productivity for Japan to generate more than mediocre growth.

    But even with a weak hand at home, Abe understood that Japan’s economic weight as the world’s third-largest economy and a commercial powerhouse in the Asia-Pacific region gave him a trump card in foreign policy. And over his eight years in office, Abe played the economic statecraft card well. He used it to advance two enduring and interrelated goals of Japanese foreign policy: keeping the United States engaged in the Asia-Pacific region and managing the risks of a rising China.

    One of the first things Abe did upon returning to office was to lean into the Obama administration’s “rebalancing” strategy toward Asia. In early 2013, he traveled to Washington and declared in a seminal speech (at CSIS) that “Japan is back.” He made clear his interest in Japan’s joining the U.S.-led Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade negotiations then underway. Despite the stiff resistance he expected from Japanese farmers and other vested interests at home, Abe saw TPP membership as a multifaceted strategic ploy to strengthen the U.S.-Japan alliance, keep the United States embedded in the region, deepen ties with Japan’s Southeast Asian partners, and—not least—send a message to Beijing about Tokyo’s throw weight in regional rulemaking and norm-setting.

  3. The election of Donald Trump halfway into his term forced Abe to sharply shift tactics while attempting to preserve the basic goals of his strategy. He quickly tried to ingratiate himself with Trump (famously flying to New York just weeks after the November 2016 election bearing a gift of a golden golf driver) in an effort to deflect the bilateral trade pressure that Abe knew was coming. While not entirely successful in these efforts, and paying a heavy price for what domestic critics saw as slavish behavior, Abe managed to avoid the worst of Trump’s tariffs on allies—most significant, threatened duties against the crown jewels of Japanese industry, automobiles.

    Trump’s decision to withdraw from TPP on his third day in office was a major inflection point for Abe. Where other Japanese prime ministers would likely have resigned themselves to collapse of the regional trade initiative without its principal sponsor at the table, Abe made one of his boldest moves: he took up the chairman’s gavel and persuaded the other 10 TPP members to carry on with the negotiations. Historians are likely to point to Abe’s stewardship of those talks to a successful conclusion—salvaging most of TPP in an eventual Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP)—as one of the singular achievements of his term.

    Again, part of Abe’s strategic calculation about CPTPP was that it would plant a stake in the ground in the intensifying competition between Japan and China for regional leadership. As I have written elsewhere, while geographic proximity and commercial interdependence necessitate that Tokyo engage constructively with its large neighbor to the west, no Japanese leader can accept a Sinocentric order in the Asia-Pacific based on Beijing’s preferred rules and norms. Abe thus focused much of his economic statecraft on trying to offer alternatives to partners in the region.

  4. In addition to CPTPP, other noteworthy efforts in this regard included his campaign to promote “quality infrastructure.” Launched in 2015 as a thinly veiled response to China’s ambitious Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), Abe’s Partnership for Quality Infrastructure initially offered regional partners $110 billion (a number suspiciously close to the initial $100 billion capitalization of Beijing’s Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank) of Japanese investment in railways and ports with high standards of transparency and social, environmental, and fiscal sustainability. Abe then used his 2019 chairmanship of the Group of 20 (G20) to get his fellow economic leaders—including President Xi Jinping of China—to endorse a set of six “Principles for Quality Infrastructure Investment.”

    Data governance was another area in which Abe tried to make a statement about Japan’s preferred rules and norms. Often described as the “new oil,” data flow throughout the modern economy, yet there are few internationally agreed rules to govern the collection, storage, transfer, or privacy of data. Europe and China are staking out their own preferences in this area, but neither approach rests comfortably with Japan. Again, Abe used his role as host of the G20 in 2019 to win agreement to his concept of “data free flow with trust,” with the aim of starting a global conversation on this topic—along Japan’s preferred lines.

    Toward the end of his term, Abe worked more quietly to sharpen Japan’s domestic tools of "economic security." He won passage of legislation to tighten the country’s foreign investment screening mechanism, authorized stronger enforcement of export controls, and set up a new economics office in his National Security Secretariat. Most recently, Abe’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party has been considering proposals to strengthen intelligence agencies’ tools against commercial espionage.

    Balance—between offensive and defensive tools, between soliciting Washington’s favor and protecting Japan’s commercial interests, between engaging with and hedging against China—has been the hallmark of Shinzo Abe’s economic statecraft. His successor would do well to carry on this important dimension of the outgoing prime minister’s legacy.
