It wasn' until the end of world war 2 that the dolar was reconised as the worlds reerve currency. The united nations ws convened and 7 of the biggest G8 empires seemed to agree a new map which recognised that a root cause of the world wars that orgnising world trade just to the benefit of peoples in 8 place resprent aboyt a quarter of the world's population was snot sustainable. The plan: the USA would help the G7 economies reboot but once this was growing support for fomrer colonises independence would be maximised. Three opportunities emerged from 1950s innovations: satellite and space, digital computing, much more reliable proceses of engineering and linking in supply chain networks.In additior crop science geared to local diversity emerged. All of these appeared to offer win-win opportunities across nations but 3 problems seem to have overtaken the rate at which the UN could adapt. kennedy was assisinated-the U lost continuity both internationally and at home as the publics confindence wass rockedby other assinations, and vietnam -the first time americans had entered an unwinnable war? Increased Russian mischief all over the newly indepetend nations world including latin america , and a geonomic trick nature had played on te old world. A place which the ebnglish had named the middle east is actually a land bridge between 3 suncintents: Afrca m Euripe and Asa. But this landbridge is mainly desert and oil welss. It became the epicentre of all sorts of conflicts (see more detail). Neither the eurpean union or post-kennedy america had prepared enough for what happened net

To the extemy that global trade existed and needed to be accounted for by currency. the pound played this role until the start of world war 1 at which time it abandoned the promise of exchangeability with gold.Access to engineering changed the size of economies from being mainly correlated with where populations had settled- eg 2 out of 3 on the asian continent. The fact that small island of britain (less than 1% of people, much less than that as per cent of land andnaural resources) couldat its peak recah nearly 10% of woirkd trade reflects how its mercantile power ahd won out comaped with other Europeans in 18th C and its first mover adavantages with engines. In particular the 19th C was to see The Uk wmpire take over adminstration of most of the nations around the INsian ocean. Americans who were fast to insutrialise after decalaring independence in 1776, focused on saling engineering on their own continent. It wasn't until world war 1 that this nation became recongined as tahgest world power
Could it be that there are 2 types of world trade
zero sum ones that need regulating so that a country get overdependent on anothers products
social world trades go way above zero sum- eg where knowledge is multiplied in use by eg mentoring-
notably consider microfranchises which we define as offer open sourcing of a social solution designed to give a community capacity to serve an important need where the value of the service stays with the producers--could it be that this second type of world trade needs open society celebration not inter-country regulation? in a knowledge economy might social world trade be 10 times bigger than zero-sum particularly in markets where knowhow critically impacting millennials' sustainability goals.

Rethinking Investment in Africa

Investment flows into sub-Saharan Africa contracted in 2020 and before that, in 2019, as the pandemic spread. If private investment inflows don't return to pre-pandemic levels, the region faces a financing gap of up to $290 billion, and that could prolong economic difficulty. Mohammed Dewji discusses investment continuity in Africa.
