Headline April 17, 2016/ ''' THE WORLD OF ORDER versus THE WORLD OF DISORDER '''




!WOW!   -the World Students Society, at this very moment, is at the very first level of making and composing-

And, !WOW!  is an organization,  that is totally and exclusively owned by students of the entire planet. But for now, it is being positioned, for  *the reconciliation of the total optima*,...and the steep ascent of its growth-

Into the greatest organization ever, that mankind has known. In the years ahead,  very few organizations in the world, can and could ever boast of greater assets than the World Students Society : *The World Students*.
*UBER,  -the world's largest taxi company, owns no vehicles. Facebook, the world's most popular media owner, creates no content.

Alibaba, the most valuable retailer, has no inventory.

And Airbnb, the world's largest accommodation provider, owns no real-estate. Something truly interesting is happening.

THE WORLD   -for sure, is in the middle of some huge disruptive inflections in technology, the labor market and geopolitics-

That will raise fundamental questions about the future of work and the social contracts between governments and their people and employers and employees.

This is a result of the exponential growth in computing power, storage, networking, sensors and software generation and  interoperability, which is allowing us to both gather massive amounts of data and apply software to that data-

To see patterns at a speed and scope unknown before. And it is taking friction out of so many things at once : from hailing a cab to reserving the a room in someone's home in Timbuktu-

To buying groceries to learning from anyone anywhere to designing an airplane part on a 3-D printer in a week instead of six months.

*Complexity is becoming free*. 

ON GEOPOLITICS, -we still have great powerful rivalries, but the most relevant divide in the world will no longer be-

East-West, capitalist-communist.  *It will be The World Of Order versus The World Of Disorder*- enumerates the author.

As environmental, sectarian and economic pressures are pulverizing weak and failed states.

*Every day now you read about people fleeing  The World of  Disorder for the World of Order*.

Rohingyas, a mostly Muslim group, from Myanmar and Bangladesh are trying to get into Thailand and Malaysia. Africans, Arabs and Afghans are trying to cross the Mediterranean to Europe.

Central American parents have sent thousands by thousands of their kids to the United States.

Israel's government has started sending letters to to the 45,000 Eritrean Sudanese refugees  -who walked. rode and sailed to Israel in search of order and work-

Telling them they have  30 days to accept  $3,500 in cash, and a one way ticket to home or to an unnamed third country in Africa or face prison, The Washington Post reported recently.

Last year, the UN's refugee agency said  that are more displaced persons in the world  -some 50 million- than anytime since World War II.      

A RECENT STUDY by the Oxford Martin School concluded that 47% U.S. jobs are at high risk of being taken by smart machines and software in the next two decades.

And what is interesting, notes James Manyika, a director at the McKinsey Global Institute and coauthor of  ''No ordinary Disruption,'' is that, contrary to expectations-

''Knowledge Workers at the middle and the top'' may be more threatened than those doing physical work. For example, The Associated Press now uses computers, not reporters, to generate more than 3,000 financial reports per quarter.

This can free up workers to do more creative work, but they have to be really trained for it.

But here's the rub: We don't know what to do. We used to rely on empires, colonizers and dictators to control a lot of these projects, but we're now in a post imperial, post-colonial and, in many places, post-autocratic age.

No one wants to touch these disorderly zones because, says the author, all you win is a bill. And most are incapable of democratic self-governance. Who will control these areas?

What if the answer is nobody? It will be one of the big leadership challenges of the next decade.

*So, to paraphrase Trotsky: The World Students may not be interested in talking seriously about the future yet-

But the future will be interested in talking to them*

See Yah all on !WOW!.

With respectful dedication to the Leaders, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world. See Yah all on !WOW!  -the World Students Society and the Ecosystem 2011:
