since 1960 most of the world's population mapping sdg development - eg asians as over 60% of humans have traded round a japanese translation of global system- compounding solutions americans like deming and borlaug open sourced -more than any other single system dynamic friends have been able to map- brookings update 2020- 5/15 how taipei, seoul, hk, saved their peoples, and hanoi

back to middle of 20th c-perhaps it shouldn't be that much of a surprise that it took one of the 2 island nations that most colonised borders up to world war 2 to culturally rollback a higher purpose for uniting peoples

EntrepreneurialRevolution.city July 2020..If you care about two out of 3 lives mattering who are Asian, nearly 60 years of miracles mapping around worldwide decision-makers considering Japan from 1962 are worth replaying -that's when my father Norman Macrae aged 39 was privileged to write his first signed survey in The Economist -the first 2 quarters of dad's 80+ years of life had been spent
**writing unsigned leaders in The Economist (eg as only journalist at Messina's birth of EU) after serving as teenager in world war 2 navigating air places uk bomber command region modern day bangladesh/myanmar -
** 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.

Our Father – Akira Yokoi
“The person to act on the Level 5 leadership”
Our Roots
Naming our program after our late father captures his many characteristics, which our program vision and mission embody. During his remarkable life, Akira nurtured and empowered us, and even now, he continues to inspire us. Our program stands as a fitting tribute to him and his lasting impact. Indeed, the roots he provided us serve to support us while allowing us to grow.
History of the Name “Akira”
“Akira” is a Japanese word that means something enlightening, visionary and forward-looking. Other words commonly associated with its translation include: to bring out, to clarify, to demonstrate, to develop, to define, emerging, manifest, and visible. There are also overtones of human nature to this word: bright, clean, extravert, illuminative, shining, splendorous, vibrant, and wise.
Life of “Akira”
Our father left behind much more than just his name and its meanings. His life exceeded the very meanings of his name. He acted on “Level 5 leadership,” as Jim Collins stressed in his best-selling book, “Good to Great.” One of his hallmark feats, “the Kijan Project”[1] in Indonesia (in 1970’s at Toyota Motor Corporation), presented his most personal challenge. But it also demonstrated what one person could do to advance interweaving societal values with economic development in an emerging part of our world.
The Essence of “Akira”
Akira Yokoi’s life blended “personal humility” and “professional will”. This combination positively affected many people and societies well beyond the business world. An outpouring of his courage, determination, empathy, and generosity is still alive in our veins. “Akira Foundation” symbolizes his legacy and our will to harmonize our being with others.
“Man is only a privileged listener and respondent to existence. … We are trying to listen to the voice of Being. It is, or ought to be, a relation of existence, responsibility, custodianship, answerability to and for.”
- Heidegger
