ardent desires, in the following PROSPECTUS of a weekly paper, to be published every Saturday, and to be called Related items From the archive: Preliminary number and prospectusAug 5th 1843 Coffee and sugarAug 5th 1843 SugarAug 5th 1843 Wool, &c.Aug 5th 1843 WheatAug 5th 1843 Related topics Europe Free trade Western Europe Trade Business THE ECONOMIST, which will contain— First.—ORIGINAL LEADING ARTICLES, in which free-trade principles will be most rigidly applied to all the important questions of the day—political events—and parliamentary discussions; and particularly to all such as relate immediately to revenue, commerce, and agriculture; or otherwise affect the material interests of the country. Second.—Articles relating more especially to some practical, commercial, agricultural, or foreign topic of passing interest; of the state of the revenue, foreign treaties, &c. Third.—An article on the elementary principles of political economy, applied in a familiar and popular manner to practical experience; especially in relation to the laws of price—wages—rent—exchange—revenue—taxes—and the relation between producers and consumers abroad and at home; proved and illustrated by the experience of this and other countries. Fourth.—PARLIAMENTARY REPORTS: Giving at greater length all discussions peculiarly interesting to commerce and agriculture, and especially involving the principles of Free Trade. Fifth.—POPULAR MOVEMENTS: A report and account of all popular movements throughout the country in favour of Free Trade. Sixth.—GENERAL NEWS: A summary of all the news of the week,—the Court—the Metropolis—the Provinces; Scotland and Ireland. Seventh.—COMMERCIAL: Under this head a careful and elaborate account will be given of the trade of the week; with special notices of changes in fiscal regulations; state and prospects of the markets, especially indicating the progress of stocks and consumption; of imports and exports; latest Foreign News, likely to influence future supply; the state of the manufacturing districts; notices of important new mechanical improvements; shipping news; an account of the money market, and of the progress of railways and public companies. Eighth.—AGRICULTURAL: Under this head we will give frequent articles on improvements in agriculture; on the application of geology and chemistry; on new and improved implements; and in every way, to the utmost of our power, assist that true and independent spirit which is everywhere rising among the best landlords and farmers, to rely on the only safe support agriculture can have—intelligence, ingenuity, and perseverance, instead of deceptive protection. We will give a general detail of incidents, state of crops, markets, prices, foreign markets and prices converted into English money; and we have made an arrangement to communicate, from time to time, in some detail, the plans pursued in Belgium, Switzerland, and other well-cultivated countries. Ninth.—COLONIAL AND FOREIGN: In which we will furnish the earliest information respecting the trade, produce, political and fiscal changes, and other matter interesting; and, particularly, we will endeavour to expose the evils of restriction and protection, and the advantages of free intercourse and trade. Tenth.—LAW REPORTS: These we will confine chiefly to such as are particularly important to commerce, manufactures, and agriculture. Eleventh.—NOTICE OF BOOKS: Confined chiefly, but not so exclusively, to such as treat of the foregoing subjects; including all treatises on political economy, finance, or taxation. Twelfth.—COMMERCIAL GAZETTE: Price currents and statistics of the week. Thirteenth.—CORRESPONDENCE, INQUIRIES, &c.: Under this head we especially invite every one to apply for information on all the topics herein enumerated, which we do not furnish, or which is not given in such details as may be required. We have made an arrangement by which inquiries shall be replied to in the next number, if received by Thursday morning, on all subjects enumerated in this prospectus:—POLITICAL ECONOMY AND COMMERCE; FOREIGN COMMERCIAL REGULATIONS; TARIFFS, RATES OF DUTIES, AND PORT REGULATIONS; EXISTING COMMERCIAL TREATIES; POINTS OF COMMERCIAL LAW; GENERAL STATISTICS, connected with our trade for the last twenty years, or earlier, when they exist; AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS AND IMPROVEMENTS; and on other practical and economical subjects required. EXTRA MONTHLY STATISTICAL AND PARLIAMENTARY PAPER NUMBER:—In each month we will publish an extra number, devoted exclusively to statistics, and the preservation of the statistical parts of documents laid before parliament; many of which, of great value, never at present reach the public eye, or at least in a very limited way. There can be no question that, whether we speak of the economist, the legislator, the merchant, or the trader, statistics must form the most important ground-work of the whole of his reasonings, opinions, and actions; they are, in short, the fundamental facts on which all his opinions and actions must be based to be true; it is difficult to estimate their importance. At the same time we must remark, that however powerful and useful they may be as an instrument, they cannot be used with safety without considerable knowledge of the peculiar subjects, and without the exercise of great discretion in drawing results. This we will endeavour to aid by explanatory notes and observations in the collection and arrangement. Our plan is,—to divide this monthly number into two parts, one for permanent statistics, in which we will commence and collect together in alphabetical order the statistics of our revenue and trade, including exports and imports, navigation, agriculture, and currency for the last twenty years:—the trade with our colonies, and of our colonies with each other, and with this country:—and various interesting statistical statements which we can get relating to the same subjects in foreign countries: the other part we will apply to the statistics of the day: the comparison of our trade, imports, exports, consumption, stocks, &c., of all the leading articles of commerce, between the current year and the corresponding period of the preceding year: and other matters useful and interesting to the material interests of the country. And at the end of each year, we will furnish a title-page and general index to the whole paper, including the statistical numbers, so that the whole may form a useful volume of reference to the economist, the politician, the merchant, and manufacturer, the agriculturalist, and the general reader. We have made such arrangements and under such superintendence, as will secure the accomplishment of all that we propose, in a way which we trust will render our objects and exertions useful to the country: we have no party or class interests or motives; we are of no class, or rather of every class: we are of the landowning class: we are of the commercial class interested in our colonies, in our foreign trade, and in our manufactures: but our opinions are that not one part of these can have any lasting and true success that is not associated and co-existing with the prosperity of all. And lastly—if we required higher motives than bare utility, to induce that zeal, labour, and perseverance against all the difficulties which we shall have to encounter in this work—we have them. If we look abroad, we see within the range of our commercial intercourse whole islands and continents, on which the light of civilization has scarce yet dawned; and we seriously believe that FREE TRADE, free intercourse, will do more than any other visible agent to extend civilization and morality throughout the world—yes, to extinguish slavery itself. Then, if we look around us at home, we see ignorance, depravity, immorality, irreligion, abounding to an extent disgraceful to a civilized country; and we feel assured that there is little chance of successfully treating this great national disease while want and pauperism so much abound: we can little hope to improve the mental and moral condition of a people while their physical state is so deplorable:—personal experience has shown us in the manufacturing districts that the people want no acts of parliament to coerce education or induce moral improvement when they are in physical comfort—and that, when men are depressed with want and hunger, and agonized by the sufferings of helpless and starving children, no acts of parliament are of the slightest avail. We look far beyond the power of acts of parliament, or even of the efforts of the philanthropist or the charitable, however praiseworthy, to effect a cure for this great national leprosy; we look mainly to an improvement in the condition of the people. And we hope to see the day when it will be as difficult to understand how an act of parliament could have been made to restrict the food and employment of the people, as it is now to conceive how the mild, inoffensive spirit of Christianity could ever have been conceived into the plea of persecution and martyrdom, or how poor old wrinkled women, with a little eccentricity, were burned by our forefathers for witchcraft.…
To those like von neumann who value the higher purspose of maths as logical languages of open systems, the idea that every university should have a world class roster of professors that it charge students for was absurd as far back as the 1950s - read his biography. Today when the basic curricula content could be 24/7 free online and practised peer to peer on platforms lie khan academy and maharishi institute the model of the university is over 10 times too costly and will end youth employment in any place that hangs on to it as a way of chaining their future's investments to the needs of old professors and need-to-know silos
6 Nature has never valued the law of the dinosaur. The dna of the least innovative adminsitrations in the world are those that dictate that because a system cant prove to be broken yet (or isnt known by the majority of the populace to be trapping them) it shouldnt be questioned (as drucker said every year) for not what can we keep the same but what must we joyfully change ahead of time. Here the great mindset problem is legal professions who advise ceos at a sector level never to own up to their system no longer being the safest even if it was at the time the company became biggest in its market. So you have all sectors value chains like energy that have never innovated beyond carbon, and who spend more an more of societies monies lobbying for there being no risk to continuing the future as if it w history
5 For every human being to have maximum opportunity to live productively free and sustainably happy (across generations of their families) we needed freedom of voice - ie almost no cost broadcast media where an invention improved the human lot to high cost when it was already dead wood however largest its organisation had become
4 And aligning that we need public servants to want to lead the charge towards ending people being born into inequality in all its facets including war-torn regions and places where 1% of land was a private gold-mine and 99% was a public desert. Additionally we need to end calling a system democratic even as it give 3 halves of the world less that 10% voice - women, youth ,poorest; additionally the opportunity of a borderless world was to urgently value 5 tpoes of trade until national bordered trade was the least valuable of the 5 - the other 4 being webbed direct person to person; intercommunity - what The Economist by 1984 was chartering humanity's most urgent quest for 30000 microfranchises that could be open sourced across a global village networked planet so productivity and service knowledge was valued in the community; clusters of trading nations that were designed to complement each others weakness not to empire over the weaker; trades that dint need any borders at all aas they were world class and contextually relevant for every locality to race collaboratively towards (eg such living apps as green microenergy especially photosynthesis and solar) - for more see The Book of World Record Job Creators of the net generation
3 If we had economically valued clean energy and open educations as the net generation's 2 great new possibiloities we could also have ended designing banks and health systems in ways that trapped youth in bailing out elders excesses
2 n all this wherever young professionals have the presence to imagine a coherently different set of rules as being more responsible (transparent, win-win-, exponentialy sustainable) than their elders these laws should have been fast tested -and the last thing in the world that was needed was that one prime minister blocked continuous voting for such constitutional changes buffered by bipolar parties and the 1% vested interest lobbies that have all but destroyed planetwide sustainability
1 this leaves how to transform "death of distance age infrastiuctures in ways that value commons and the longest models- this is exactly the opposite sort of privatatisation model that eg macroeconomist jeffrey sachs delivered to the USSR. Such networks as Open Society need to be celebrated for seeing the end of nobel prizes being awarded to economists and pacemakers as separate expertises. They are not. And unless we end the post-world war 2 phenolmenon of biggest governments adding a 15% tax on every hujans work so that they vcan play with arms and wargames- its not mathematically likely that more than a billion of our children will reach century 22 and even that is probably unsustainable if Orwell's big borother endgame is to be thye way of the world…

Man has just landed on the moon but back on planet earth imagine hundreds of square miles where communities of people have next to nothing. They have been flattened by a cyclone that killed half a million people and a war of independence. Their new nation is the poorest but one of the ten most populous in the world. During the region’s history of colonization, electricity grids never reached these people – they were not part of what the empire wanted from the trade it designed.
WHERE GOAL 1 IS POVERTY ALLEVIATION
In such communities, what adults as well as children can directly train each other in is life critical. Education networks of this sort are anchored in practical skills much of which are far removed from sitting all day in a classroom. In the 2010s when a job creating genius like Jack Ma says that over half of youth will be unemployable if they are just confounded to classroom education, we suggest that the world is extremely fortunate that there remains one 100 million person alumni network with community-based learning origins: BRAC@Bangladesh
Help edit leaflet celebrating an exploration of the value multipliers of community-based education empowered by the fairer sex. Due to colonial and other consequences BRAC @ Bangladesh is mother earth’s deepest (global-for-local) hub for innovating solutions to many of the most pressing challenges of the 17 sustainability goalsthat the United Nations has prioritized as collaboratively urgent by 2030.. If you are a parent we invite you to promote joyful awareness of this collective experience as a critical success factor for the half of the world aged under 30 if they are to be the sustainability goals generation.
This publication is part of a 50 year media retrospective of friends and family of The Economist’s Norman Macrae who was inspired in 1968 by the imminent moon landing to launch fiercely optimistic debates on technology’s coming “Entrepreneurial Revolution” around mother earth.- a movement that became dad’s life work until his parting in 2010. email@example.com

General Theory; last chapter of essays on persuasion -understand timing (1930s) was keynes at his peak and west's 20th century at its most conflicted (1930s with hitler and stalin terrifying humanity)- writings about this time also showed hayek at his most insightful in my opinion; immediate post-war disciples of Keynes appear to have been schumacher and schumpeter -who both saw the extremes of communism and capitalism as the same broken system ultimately ruled by and for a few insiders

MATTHEW BOULTON, James Watt’s partner in the development of the steam engine and one of the 18th century’s greatest industrialists, was in no doubt about the importance of Britain’s first embassy to the court of the Chinese emperor. “I conceive”, he wrote to James Cobb, secretary of the East India Company, “the present occasion to be the most favourable that ever occurred for the introduction of our manufactures into the most extensive market in the world.”
In light of this great opportunity, he argued, George Macartney’s 1793 mission to Beijing should take a “very extensive selection of specimens of all the articles we make both for ornament and use.” By displaying such a selection to the emperor, court and people, Macartney’s embassy would learn what the Chinese wanted. Boulton’s Birmingham factories, along with those of his friends in other industries, would then set about producing those desiderata in unheard-of bulk, to everybody’s benefit.
That is not how things turned out. The emperor accepted Macartney’s gifts, and quite liked some of them—a model of the Royal Sovereign, a first-rate man o’ war, seemed particularly to catch his fancy—but understood the whole transaction as one of tribute, not trade. The court saw a visit from the representatives of King George as something similar in kind to the opportunities the emperor’s Ministry of Rituals provided for envoys from Korea and Vietnam to express their respect and devotion to the Ruler of All Under Heaven. (Dealings with the less sophisticated foreigners from inner Asia were the responsibility of the Office of Barbarian Affairs.)
"We have never valued ingenious articles, nor do we have the slightest need of your country’s manufactures"
The emperor was thus having none of Macartney’s scandalous suggestion that the Son of Heaven and King George should be perceived as equals. He professed himself happy that Britain’s tribute, though admittedly commonplace, should have come from supplicants so far away. But he did not see it as the beginning of a new trading relationship: “We have never valued ingenious articles, nor do we have the slightest need of your country’s manufactures…Curios and the boasted ingenuity of their devices I prize not.” Macartney’s request that more ports in China be opened to trade (the East India Company was limited to Guangzhou, then known as Canton) and that a warehouse be set up in Beijing itself was flatly refused. China at that time did not reject the outside world, as Japan did. It was engaged with barbarians on all fronts. It just failed to see that they had very much to offer.
In retrospect, a more active interest in extramural matters might have been advisable. China was unaware that an economic, technological and cultural revolution was taking place in Europe and being felt throughout the rest of the world. The subsequent rise of colonialist capitalism would prove the greatest challenge it would ever face. The Chinese empire Macartney visited had been (a few periods of collapse and invasion notwithstanding) the planet’s most populous political entity and richest economy for most of two millennia. In the following two centuries all of that would be reversed. China would be semi-colonised, humiliated, pauperised and torn by civil war and revolution.
Now, though, the country has become what Macartney was looking for: a relatively open market that very much wants to trade. To appropriate Boulton, the past two decades have seen the most favourable conditions that have ever occurred for the introduction of China’s manufactures into the most extensive markets in the world. That has brought China remarkable prosperity. In terms of purchasing power it is poised to retake its place as the biggest economy in the world. Still home to hundreds of millions mired in poverty, it is also a 21st-century nation of Norman Foster airports and shining solar farms. It has rolled a rover across the face of the moon, and it hopes to send people to follow it.
An embassy to China
And now it is a nation that wants some things very much. In general, it knows what these things are. At home its people want continued growth, its leaders the stability that growth can buy. On the international stage people and Communist Party want a new deference and the influence that befits their nation’s stature. Thus China wants the current dispensation to stay the same—it wants the conditions that have helped it grow to endure—but at the same time it wants it turned into something else.
Finessing this need for things to change yet stay the same would be a tricky task in any circumstances. It is made harder by the fact that China’s Leninist leadership is already managing a huge contradiction between change and stasis at home as it tries to keep its grip on a society which has transformed itself socially almost as fast as it has grown economically. And it is made more dangerous by the fact that China is steeped in a belligerent form of nationalism and ruled over by men who respond to every perceived threat and slight with disproportionate self-assertion.
The post-perestroika collapse of the Soviet Union taught China’s leaders not just the dangers of political reform but also a profound distrust of America: would it undermine them next? Xi Jinping, the president, has since been spooked by the chaos unleashed in the Arab spring. It seems he wants to try to cleanse the party from within so it can continue to rule while refusing any notions of political plurality or an independent judiciary. That consolidation is influencing China’s foreign policy.
China is building airstrips on disputed islands in the South China Sea, moving oil rigs into disputed waters and redefining its airspace without any clear programme for turning such assertion into the acknowledged status it sees as its due. This troubles its neighbours, and it troubles America. Put together China’s desire to re-establish itself (without being fully clear about what that might entail) and America’s determination not to let that desire disrupt its interests and those of its allies (without being clear about how to respond) and you have the sort of ill-defined rivalry that can be very dangerous indeed. Shi Yinhong, of Renmin University in Beijing, one of China’s most eminent foreign-policy commentators, says that, five years ago, he was sure that China could rise peacefully, as it says it wants to. Now, he says, he is not so sure.

dominate the news, and our paper, this week. We take issue with those who hold that the West should accept Russia's behaviour as the inevitable consequence of its sway in the region. Ukraine has demonstrated its desire for stronger links with the EU, and the West has plenty of ways of putting economic pressure on Russia to stop bullying its neighbour John Micklethwait, Editor-in-Chief
the trouble is each nation has different interests and is unlikely to lead intervention with russia where trade leverage could innovate most
so london/uk and presumably switzerland does much of the banking for russian oligarchs
germany does much of the non-energy trade with russia and ukraine
various eu countries do energy trade with ussr
help us improve this list -who's responsible who for continuing the growth of russia's power however much it destroys the freedoms of youth in its neighbouring nations…
