We are diamond in rough cuts.
7 billion of us. The stats show the costs of raising a child in the US at roughly $200,000. With educational score cards showing flat line, while other countries are on the up tick (albeit Shanghai focused on rote learning and test preparation), policy makers might have to offshore some departments i.e. sending students to India for math tutoring, for instance. This should reduce school loan a bit.
It might do us some good to have a generation of young people who are globally intelligent (Ask not what the world can do for you…), and know how to exercise and exert soft power . The FT puts the x-President of Brazil and Turkey on the list of top influencers.
Economic standing aside, these leaders know how to position themselves in world affairs. They know the time is now (for the rest to rise).
