July 2017 china us economic dialogue – interview CGTN Tian Wei, Brookings Cheng Li (author Jinping diary to 2020 &china thinktanks)

TW What do you make of this china-usa dialogue? CL This is 2nd most important meeting after Florida summit of Jinping and Trump

We basically want to implement what top leaders agree; Economic field is most important in bilateral relationships: China is 2nd largest economy, usa the largest - TRADE is not just about the beef chicken agricultural markets...But also natural gas huge market, the service sector eg financial services in china..But at same time openness should be mutual

TW there has been imbalance but some say the imbalance has been due to the political limits on each side to push forward for a real change in the trade structure =CL the fundamental issue is whether china and usa still compliment each other in terms of economic front- my answer is yes:

…basically media does not present balanced view of china, its important for media people and think tanks to explore the areas of cooperation, we should educate public on te whys of mutually beneficial cooperation being goal of what we inspire and search for instead of cynicism and dogmatism as intellectual excuse – we should look at the data for market exchange opportunities… we need a friendly environment in terms of economic and diplomatic relationship without which both countries will make each other vulnerable…more

GlobalYouth partnership office in beijing

if the rather ugly 20th c practices of branding were cancelled and all brands reputation had to start from scratch in terms of leadership trustmarks there is little doubt that smart youth would quickly link round brac as the most valuable brand partner with  their sustainability goals world - so obviouisly we need to seed its presence in beijing now 

but then i cant speak chinese

it would make sense for brac to have a learning hub in beijing (not a full time office but one that could answer questions when leaders or sincere youth asked them, and one that organise leadsers quests to and from brac) -it has something similar in the netherlands

lets suppose someone is going to start that good news office up so that when chinese need brac knowledge its readily accessible - the question becomes do you two (A & Y) believe in brac enough to want to ask for that- what more experience of brac do you need to answer that question

 long term brac should be more important to chinese foreign relations and mutual trade than most of the nations in the region- its just we live in an in-between era when people are muddled as to what a leading national identity is for- if its not about youths future livelihoods what is the purpose of place leadership that global youth should trust?

it could be that if we ask sir fazle abed's son to join the boardroom structure of amy's global community of youth networks proposed by nancy and kevin then one of the first youth projects is working out what the virtual and real aspects of a brac partnerships office in china needs to involve and finding which is the fisrt corporate funding partner of that - why wouldnt one ask ali baba if they wanted to be the first chinese corporate partner of brac 

now there is something i am missing- what i dont know is whether eg Y has a mentor from tsinghua that she feels she needs ; i dont really think we need any such strategist because we are talking about youth-led ngos of the future and we have buckets of advisers around you two if you need them but not chinese ones

there is a very clear synergy between brac's stepping stone in beijing and the one the british council wants - since by far the largest investor over time in brac is british aid; whether or not britain exits europe, britain actually wants chiense relationships now- i cant believe i would have any visa problems in making this case out of london - so lets hope nancy's and kevins usa visa research goes well in next 10 days otherwise lets take the same type of model and do it out of london unless amys friends in usa have some other card to play

面带微笑、衣冠楚楚的法佐·哈桑·阿比德怎么看也不像是一个革命者。这个在英国受的教育的孟加拉人是莎士比亚和乔伊斯的粉丝,曾在壳牌公司作过会计,家族显赫:外祖父是孟加拉殖民政府的一位部长;一位叔祖父是第一个为孟加拉行政会议长官做事的孟加拉人。本周,阿比德得到了加在自己头上的荣誉——一个很有传统的称号:爵士头衔。然而,他创建的这个组织——他被授予爵士头衔也是对这个组织的一种敬意——却颠覆了传统,改变了孟加拉一直以来的贫穷和困苦,而且在这方面作出的贡献可能比任何一个单一团体都要多。这个组织叫作BRAC(孟加拉国农村发展委员会),用绝大多数标准衡量都是世界上最大的、成长最迅速的非政府组织(NGO)——而且是最像企业的NGO之一。
Although Mohammed Yunus won the Nobel peace prize in 2006 for helping the poorhisGrameen Bank was neither the first nor the largest microfinance lender in his nativeBangladeshBRAC wasIts microfinance operation disburses about $1 billion a yearBut this isonly part of what it doesit is also an internet-service providerit has a universityits primaryschools educate 11% of Bangladesh's childrenIt runs feed millschicken farmstea plantationsand packaging factoriesBRAC has shown that NGOs do not need to be small and that a little-known institution from a poor country can outgun famous Western charitiesIn a book onBRAC entitled “Freedom from Want”, Ian Smillie calls it “undoubtedly the largest and mostvariegated social experiment in the developing worldThe spread of its work dwarfs anyother privategovernment or non-profit enterprise in its impact on development.”
虽然2006年获得诺贝尔和平奖的是穆罕默德·尤努斯,但是他的格莱珉银行既不是孟加拉第一家也不是最大一家小额贷款银行;包揽这两个第一的是BRAC。它的小额贷款业务每年要发放10亿美元的贷款。但是这仅仅是它的部分业务:它还是互联网服务的供应商;它拥有一所大学;它办的小学解决了孟加拉11%孩子的受教育问题。它还经营饲料加工厂、养鸡场、茶叶种植场,还有包装厂。BRAC的成功表明NGO组织不一定要非常小,而且一个来自穷国、不为人知的机构可以干过西方著名的慈善机构。伊恩·斯迈利在他专门写BRAC的书《彻底走出饥饿》中将这称作“在发展中国家中无疑是最大规模且最为斑斓的社会实验。其社会工程的散播广度让其它任何私有的、政府的或是非盈利的企业都相形见拙,为社会发展带来的影响无人能及。
None of this seemed likely in 1970, when Sir Fazle turned Shell's offices in Chittagong into arefuge for victims of a deadly cycloneBRACwhich started as an acronymBangladeshRehabilitation Assistance Committeeand became a motto, “building resources acrosscommunities”—surmounted its early troubles by combining two things that rarely go together:running an NGO as a business and taking seriously the social context of poverty.
但在1970年却看不出这些,当时的法佐把壳牌公司在吉大港的办公址变成了避难所,接纳在一次恐怖龙卷风中的受害者。BRAC——分别是“孟加拉,康复,援助,委员会”四个英文单词的首字母,并且演变成一句口号,“建立跨社区资源”——克服了早期遇到的困难,办法是将两件很少能并置的东西结合到了一起:1.像做生意一样运作一个NGO;2.认真对待贫穷的社会环境。
BRAC earns from its operations about 80% of the money it disburses to the poor (theremainder is aidmostly from Western donors). It calls a halt to activities that require endlesssubsidiesAt one pointit even tried financing itself from the tiny savings of the poor (ienoaid at all), though this drastic form of self-help proved a step too farhardly any lenders orborrowers put themselves forwardFrom the startSir Fazle insisted on brutal honesty aboutresultsBRAC pays far more attention to research and “continuous learning” than do mostNGOsDavid Kortenauthor of “When Corporations Rule the World”, called it “as near to a pureexample of a learning organisation as one is likely to find.”
BRAC向穷人发放的钱款中有80%来自其自主经营(剩下的来自捐助,大多是西方的捐助者)。它会叫停那些无休止依赖捐助的项目,甚至还曾一度试着通过穷人的点滴存款来为自己融资(换种说法就是不依赖丁点捐助),尽管这种极端的自助形式后被证明走的太远:几乎没有人主动来存钱或贷款。从一开始,法佐就坚持公开透明,对于经营业绩毫不隐瞒——即使是很坏的业绩。BRAC对于调研和“持续学习”的注重要远胜于大多NGO组织。《当企业统治世界》的作者大卫·科尔顿把BRAC称作“可能是能够找到的最为纯粹的学习型组织”。
What makes BRAC unique is its combination of business methods with a particular view ofpovertyPoverty is often regarded primarily as an economic problem which can be alleviated bysending moneyInfluenced by three “liberation thinkers” fashionable in the 1960sFrantzFanonPaulo Freire and Ivan IllichSir Fazle recognised that poverty in Bangladeshi villages isalso a result of rigid social stratificationIn these circumstances, “community developmentwill help the rich more than the poorto change the povertyyou have to change the society.
BRAC之所以能够独树一帜,在于它的经营手法是与其看待贫穷的独特观点相结合的。贫穷在多数时候被首先看作是经济问题,可以通过发放金钱得到缓解。因为受到在1960年代很流行的三位“解放式的思想家”——弗朗兹·法农、保罗弗·莱雷和伊凡·伊里奇——的影响,法佐认识到孟加拉国农村的贫穷问题是源于严格的社会层级。在这样的环境下,“社区发展”对于富人的帮助要胜于对穷人的帮助;为了改变贫穷状态,你必须改变社会。
That view might have pointed Sir Fazle towards left-wing politicsInsteadthe revolutionaryimpetus was channelled through BRAC into developmentWomen became the institution's focusbecause they are bottom of the heap and most in need of help: 70% of the children in BRACschools are girlsMicrofinance encourages the poor to save butunlike the Grameen BankBRACalso lends a lot to small companiesTiny loans may improve the lot of an individual or familybut are usually invested in traditional village enterpriseslike owning a cowSir Fazle's aim ofsocial change requires not growth (in the sense of more of the samebut development(meaning new and different activities). Only businesses create jobs and new forms ofproductive enterprise.
这样的观点本来可能会指引法佐走向左翼政治。而实际情况是,这种革命动力经BRAC的催化转换成了实实在在的发展。妇女成为了这个机构的主要关注对象,因为她们身处最底层,且最需要帮助:BRAC办的小学里70%是女生。小额贷款鼓励穷人存钱,但是和格莱珉银行不同之处在于,BRAC也把钱借给小公司。小额贷款可能会改变一个人或是一个家庭的命运,但是这些钱通常都被投资在传统的农村致富项目上,比如养牛。法佐改变社会的目标靠的不是增长(是指“同类项目越来越多”),而是发展(意思是“新的不同的生意”)。只有生意才能创造就业就会,才能产生新形式的、生产力强的企业。
After 30 years in BangladeshBRAC has more or less perfected its way of doing things and isspreading its wings round the developing worldIt is already the biggest NGO in Afghanistan,Tanzania and Ugandaovertaking British charities which have been in the latter countries fordecadesComing from a poor countryand a Muslim oneto bootmeans it is less likely to beresented or called condescendingIts costs are lowertooit does not buy large white SUVs oremploy large white men.
经过在孟加拉30年的发展,BRAC对于自己这套业务之道已多少达到完善,并且正在将触角伸向其它第三世界国家。它已经超过英国的慈善机构,成为阿富汗、坦桑尼亚、乌干达这几个国家中最大的NGO组织,而后者已经在这些国家经营了几十载。因为是来自穷国——还是一个穆斯林国家,这意味着BRAC不大可能遭人反感,或被形容为“居高临下的恩施”。它的花销也同样很低:没有大型的白色越野车,也没雇佣高大的白人。
