A1 Gandhi studied at the Bar of London becoming a barrister. He had grown up on the West Coast of India, north of Bombay (today’s Mumbai). In 1888, he perceived Indian universities as second rate and wanted to network into the epicentre of world knowledge that London was still perceived to be. Academically, he was somewhat disappointed describing many of his peers and teachers as drunk by teatime. However, he relished hosting a cross cultural student club in the world’s capital – his start in becoming one of the most extraordinary international networkers of his era. London’s lawyers are situated between the journalistic Fleet Street and the City which is both trading and financial hub of London. One of Gandhi’s key abilities became journalising and attracting storytellers of his emerging influence as mediator of change across the old world’s three continents

A2 On his return to India as a fully qualified barrister, Gandhi could not find high level work. He became employed by an Indian merchant connecting South Africa which is where Gandhi’s professional work as a barrister took place. Although the Suez Canal had opened in 1869, circumnavigating Africa was still the dominant route for empires of Northern Europe to colonise the far east. If you take out a map and draw 3 straight lines from the South African port of Durban to 1) Bombay, 2) 2) Calcutta (todays Kolkata), 3) Singapore- you see 3 ocean routes which British Empire sought to control. The coastline west of Bombay covers the whole of the middle east and the East African coast. Until 1912 Calcutta was the capital of India with its situation in the Bay of Bengal the prime operating space for the most powerful business monopoly: the East India company. Further East,  Singapore’s significance being where Asia’s south coastal belt ends and far east coast begins, including the sea route to China. With Asians being over two thirds of the world’s population, the southern and eastern coastal belts of asia explain where most of the human race depend on for world trade.

A3 In 1906, Gandhi was thrown out of a first class train carriage for having the wrong color skin. This became a life changing moment – Gandhi suddenly saw his profession as Bar of London barrister as the systemic problem constraining his peoples livelihoods. He started planning how to call for independence of India but first he wanted to design a totally new education system building vocation skills Indians would need and freedom from the English mindset- a  peaceful whole truth  consciousness “satyagraha”

A4 Gandhi travelled five times to London. The first time as student; the other 4 times to plant coalitions for freedom and independence. His fifth visit drew thousands to the Quakers Hall in London – unlike noisy politicians of a television age, Gandhi dramatizes sitting silently to listen to supporters’ co-creative suggestions- among other good fortunes London’s rountable served to connect the extraordinary educational revolutionary Maria Montessori. Gandhi never seems to have sought fame for himself but he certainly multiplied storytellers of positive actions all around him. For example, by chance one of his landings in England accidentally coincided with the start of world war 1. Unable to continue his trip to India, he linked in first aid workers in London.

some bonus questions on south africa

true or false

1) africa's largest technology company is in south africa

2) soros first philanthropy was in south africa

3) nelson mandela was inspired by gandhi


all three are true

africa's largest tech company is naspers- around 2003 it bought about 30% of tencent -making naspers largest investor in tencent; track what naspers invests in - eg thestudenthubmay help bring digftal curricula africa-wide

2025report.com aims to celebrate first 75 years that followers of Adam Smith , Commonwealth begun by Queen Victoria, James Wilson and dozens of Royal Societies, Keynes saw from being briefed 1951 by NET (Neumann Einstein Turing). Please contacts us if you have a positive contribution - we will log these at www.economistdiary.com/1976 www.economistdiary.com/2001 and www.economistdiary.com/2023 (admittedly a preview!!)

First a summary of what the NET asked to be meidiated to integrate trust during what they foresaw as a chaotic period.

Roughly they foresaw population growth quadrupling from 2 billion to 8 billion

They were most concerned that some people would access million times moore tech by 1995 another million times moore by 2015 another million times moore by 2025. Would those with such access unite good for all. If we go back to 1760s first decade that scots invented engines around Glash=gow University James Wat and diarist Adam Smith we can note this happened just over a quarter of millennium into age of empire. WE welcome corrections be this age appears to have been a hectic race between Portugal, Spain, France Britain Netherlands as probbly the first 5 to set the system pattern. I still dont understand was it ineviatble when say the Porttuguese king bet his nations shirt on navigation that this would involve agressive trades with guns forcing the terms of trade and colonisation often being a 2nd step and then a 3rd steb being taking slaves to do the work of building on a newly conquered land. I put this way because the NET were clear almost every place in 1951 needed to complete both independence and then interdependence of above zero sum trading games. Whils traidning things runs into zero sums (eg when there is overall scarcity) life critical knowhow or apps can multiplu=y value in use. Thats was a defining value in meidting how the neyt's new engineering was mapped. Of course this problem was from 1945 occuring in a world where war had typiclly done of the following to your place:

your capital cities had been flattened by bombing - necessitating architecture rebuild as well as perhaps an all chnage in land ownership

your peoples had gone through up to 6 years of barbaric occupation -how would this be mediated (public served) particularly if you were a nation moving from radio to television

yiu mifgt eb britain have been on winning side but if huge debt to arms you had bought

primarily you might be usa now expected by most outside USSR to lead every advance'

in population terms you might be inland rural (more than half of humans) where you had much the least knowledge on what had hapened because you had been left out of the era of connecting electricity and communications grids

The NETts overall summary : beware experts in energy will be the most hated but wanted by national leaders; and then far greater will be exponential risk is the most brilliant of connectors of our new engines will become even more hated and wanted. We should remember that the NET did not begin with lets design computers. They began with Einstein's 1905 publications; newtonian science is at the deepest limits systemically wrong for living with nature's rules.

WE can thrash through more understanding of how the NET mapped the challenges from 1951 at http://neumann.ning.com/ Unfortunatnely nobody knew that within 6 years of going massively public in 1951 with their new engineering visions, all of the net would be dead. One of the most amzaing documents I have ever seen is the last month's diary of von neumann roughly October 1955 before he became bedridden with cancer. All over usa engineering projects were receiving his last genius inputs. And yet more amazing for those interested in intelligence machines is his last curriculum the computer and the brain scribbled from his bedroom in bethesda and presented posthumously by his 2nd wife Klara at Yale 1957 before she took her own life about a year later. A great loss because while neumann had architected computers she had arguably been the chief coder. Just to be clear Turing also left behind a chief coder Jane who continued to work for Britain's defence planning at cheltenham for a couple of decades. Economistwomen.com  I like to believe that the founders of brainworking machines foresaw not only that women coders would be as produytive as men but that they would linking sustainability from bottom up of every community. At least that is a valid way of looking at how primarily 1billion asian women batted the systemic poverty of being disconnected from the outside world even as coastal places leapt ahead with in some cases (G Silicon Valley, whatever you call Japan-Korea south-Taiwan-HK-Singapore access to all of 10**18 times moore

my father The Economist's norman macrae was privileged to meet von neumann- his legacy of 100 times more tech per decade informed much of dad's dialogues with world leaders at The Economist - in active retirement dad's first project to be von neumanns official biographer - english edition ; recently published japanese edition - queries welcomed; in 1984 i co-authored 2025report.com - this was celebrating 12 th year that dad( from 1972, also year silicon valley was born) argued for entrepreneurial revolution (ie humanity to be sustainable would need to value on sme networks not big corporate nor big gov); final edition of 2025report is being updated - 1984's timelines foresaw need to prep for fall of brlin wall within a few months; purspoes of the 5 primary sdg markets were seen to be pivotal as they blended real and digital - ie efinance e-agri e-health e-learning and 100%lives matter community; the report charged public broadcasters starting with BBC with most vital challenge- by year 2000 ensure billions of people were debating man's biggest risk as discrepancy in incomes and expectations of rich & poor nations; mediated at the right time everyone could linkin ideas as first main use of digital webs--- the failure to do this has led to fake media, failures to encourage younger half of the world to maxinise borderless friendships and sdg collabs - see eg economistwomen.com abedmooc.com teachforsdgs.com ecop26.com as 2020s becomes last chance for youth to be teh sustainability generation
