Like the creation of Ministry of Innovation or Ministry of Happiness,soon, added as new classification to the national wealth measurement charts amongst the 200 nations “The Ministry of Critical Thinking; mandated to measure its national ‘rate’ of human-transformation into futurism and creating skilled-citizenry with innovative performance based on critical thinking” This powerful value add to national capability on economic development fronts while discovering hidden human assets of productivity and attracting foreign direct investments. National leaderships hard pressed to demonstrate such scaling will have to make new policies on critical thinking across the nation. In the 80s highest numbers of MBA within a nation were such attractive measurements. Starting 2020 uplifting citizens to superior and productive performances to cope with future or have restless citizenry turn into mob and chaos.
Counting and mounting steps is what education can teach you, swinging on ropes what practice will train you, but somersaults without the net, demands critical thinking; running businesses are the flying acts of trapeze, deeply hidden inside in search of key on self-discovery journey, waiting to get liberated and dazzling performances. After a lost decade on such talent-advancement fronts deeper understanding such topic urgently needed. The world is changing fast is no longer a cliché, it’ now a warning. Smart counties focused in helping citizenry against onslaught of AI robotization.
Elements of Critical Thinker: In order to form a judgment about anything some analysis of facts are critically necessary in that pursuit. It is complex and difficult, demands rationality, unbiased analysis and study of facts.

Such thinking also leads to command and clarity of communication and narratives of higher order with standards of excellence.
Historically speaking, this 2500 year topic dating back to Socrates ironically needed as a survival strategy for today when artificial intelligence finally starts overtaking our artificially structured economic models challenging national leaderships. In broad strokes how comfortable are we about our advancements as mankind and what measures should we apply to get even much higher.

Why Critical thinking and Entrepreneurialism; on the superior front of economic growth, the art of turning minimum resources and into maximum output, backbone of entrepreneurialism, called out of box for being unheard ideas with unseen execution, labeled as crazy for being persistent against all odds and sometimes nonsensical for being mysterious-cause-driven and not typical greed displayed as outlandish success. Observe the difference and study last 100 great entrepreneurs.
Why Reset the Future: Perhaps no need to blame, time to efficiently reset the future; critical thinking an extremely essential trajectory and necessary to allow the last lost decade teach us some real valuable transformation models.
Caution: As the term ‘critical thinking’ becomes a popular academic therapy with a portable couch and painless remedy for HR teams, on the economic fronts, let’s isolate and declare real entrepreneurialism as safety net of the future economic models and required thinking to pursue such advancements. National agenda to mobilize working citizenry must come about to create transformation; avoid mental health and depressions issues out of fear of artificial intelligence. AI will play a very powerful role in the future but limited or unskilled over time are the most fearful. Identify the difference and study why artificial intelligence is artificial ignorance
Understanding the transformation of human performance: Like an unstoppable tidal wave, all over the world, massive robotization and artificial intelligence driving forces will replace a billion once high value middle and senior level white collar workers. This happened when factory floors automated. This time the targets are shinny office towers and downtown cores. Any mishap may turn into chaos, as these once highly skilled workers will be far more difficult unlike the old manufacturing workers lost in the crowd. Study the rise and fall of WeWork
Imagine; National economies having deployment ready mobilization to transform masses to higher levels of performance on entrepreneurial learning grounds. When such deployments are self-generating imagine the impact across 50-100 countries.
Imagine; Midsize business economy of the nation transformed with new thinking, independent and confident to maximize the free flow of new technologies, robotization, and artificial intelligence, creating grassroots prosperity via their own enterprises of sorts, with local or exportable models balancing local growth and prosperity.
Imagine; Nations that already missed the Third Industrial Revolution would leap-frog, by-passing all and energize its working citizenry to superior performance fitting highly automated and digital platform world.
Imagine; There are 11,000 Chamber with combined 45 million members across the world, how big an impact will they make on digital platforms and bounce on global markets. The future of Chambers of Commerce is a hot topic and new technologies are going to transform them. What’s required are institutional dialogue and answers on role of major national trading blocks and gate keepers of midsize business economy to come full circle on these new thinking? Authoritative, bold national scale Round-table discussions a good start. Study very closely as massive transformation already underway.
Three key areas digitization and advanced strategies; how digital advancements balanced with humanization will uplift common citizen to better performers. How simultaneous digital transformation will make its impact in synchronized fashion. How entire nation mobilized in a highly motivated style creating harmonious environments with parallel responses to entrepreneurial movements. Study platform economies and entrepreneurialism.
Understanding National Entrepreneurialism: the most neglected are the national entrepreneurial talents scattered across the unknown regions within national boundaries, their earlier dreams and spirits stolen later blocked at every stage but now opened as only resort to uplift such talents and combine their ideas with technologies and global access on platform economies.
Caution: Just as if wearing a lab-coat does not make a doctor similar rule MUST apply to entrepreneurialism, academic institutions needs massive adjustments to differentiate new thinking as outdated MBA mounts. Find truth and study deeply Fake Entrepreneurialism.
Understanding Exportability: Without exports nations are doomed; without the export promotion bureaus and agencies local exporters are doomed; without exporting there is no foreign exchange. Without foreign exchange national economy slips, restless citizenry starts growing. Unless ultra-modern global-age savvy and platform economy centric the export promotions bureaus of the world become the lingering exports will become troublesome, nation by nation, country by country, mostly damaging their own national image and economies, hurting their own local exporters and equally creating a poor image for themselves becoming irrelevant. Observe the difference and study trade-wars and skills-wars
Understanding Grassroots prosperity: Imagine abundance of local grassroots prosperity now waiting national mobilization of hidden talents of entrepreneurialism on platform economies. This is the new frontier; this requires all elements of critical thinking on one side massive transformation to uplift citizenry and parallel mobilization of entrepreneurialism on other to create innovative excellence and exportability all in simultaneous synchronization. Mastery of such topics is easier via critical thinking.
Beneficiaries: The new and emerging talents are hidden and untapped amongst workforces and national entrepreneurial energies trapped in outdated policies ready for global challenges, making working citizenry the top beneficiaries. Political leadership ready to shine with such advances
Enemies: The same forces that gripped the last decade, the same silence that ignored opportunities will play the same wait and see game. Unchanged they remain comfortable.
Adjustments: Use master blueprints on how to manage and systematically advance large number of once qualified people to higher ground of critical thinking, global-age skills, lifelong learning and entrepreneurialism on platform economies; such national mobilization are execution starved and not necessarily funding dependent. 2020 debates and discussions must acquire consensus before human endurance and performance issues become new crisis of sorts entangled with artificial intelligence and massive automation of senior level office work.
