Win the elections and save the economies
Around the world, skills upgrading, lifelong learning and critical thinking are needed for frontline economic development teams and government leaders.
Elections darken global economic landscapes, with some 100 nations rushing to vote in the next 500 days, seeking a post-pandemic recovery, panicking to find their mark of economic revolutions with new mindsets. Election cycles have only repeated themselves. Change always postponed. Regularly recycled promises. Cabinet always remodeled. Citizenship wanders and drifts.
Now missing the bold new post-pandemic narratives for the collaborative amalgamation of talent and resources to adapt to the new world. No nation can do it alone; therefore, a holistic view is needed. No leadership can deny meritocracy, as alignment with global levels of performance and productivity is required. What are the options on the table?
The Hidden Notion of “Unskilling of Old Mindset” Now Becomes a Necessary Potion to allow a new reset of the mind. Across the globe, skills enhancement, lifelong learning and critical thinking are needed for frontline economic development teams and the leadership of government agencies and business groups.
A whole new and transformed world exists while governments and institutions lacking in “entrepreneurship” still lack digital platforms and cannot understand the new call for midsize economic performance. Years after years, countries witnessing their own high potential clusters wasted in stagnation on old broken models. After all, in the months and years to come, the world is moving from the cyber age to a new one with no paper, no cash, no office and no work. Where are the specific economic solutions? Where are the stories about mobilization strategies? And where is the real live mobilization when the days of multi-year feasibility are dead now? The singing themes, the elections, the promises and recycling of the old state of mind cabinets won’t work, so where are the covers going?

To dream of great economic successes inside political rotundas is a great art, but the national mobilization of pragmatic and visible progress outside political decorum and across the nation is a new science of the day. Understanding the future is essential, because today, like a revenge of the Julian calendar, time is like a tsunami that drowns us in our own depths of performance, challenging our lifelong learning and exposing our critical thinking but only forcing us to understand the pace of change, swim or drown.
Unless a new vision emerges, midsize economies get stuck in deep mud, although recognized as the greatest mortar of economic productivity, but still deprived of simultaneous synchronization on the digital platform economies, where the expansion of skills without borders limits less the standards of commerce and productivity worthy of an advantage globally competitive. The tragedy is visible at the local level.
Visible mainly to business minds, driving a triangulation of the world age supported by new skills and replacing old models of thinking is one way. Such a reflection always seeks collaborative assemblies of all the different talents and skills necessary to mobilize national programs in order to advance these transformations for the common good.
Study the Olympics; medalists are athletes, not Sunday joggers. Pandemic recovery pressing for superior performance, therefore, economic development is no longer a diploma with embossed business cards. It now demands proof of real tactical battlefield experiences, a global understanding of platform economies with entrepreneurial mindsets and mobilization expertise and if not, these are just Tik hobbies. Tok.
The now visibly visible global economic damage is mainly caused by the lack of digitization, which takes seconds in the digital age, others take weeks and months, the extent of the loss of opportunities in certain geographical points is 1000 times greater than the replacement costs of a brand new economic development agency.

However, from we drop the trees into the forest, no matter how critical the tactical needs of progress or the urgency of needed responses, each aspect calling for multi-layered virtual events on a global scale to deliver solutions, here is three bold suggestions.
The challenge is to find the right frame of mind; therefore, avoiding policies of scratching and sniffing old dysfunctional case studies and insecure-based academic feasibility will only take another decade before the next pandemic. Start debating the options available and creating smarter plans.
The rest is easy.
The rest is easy.
