USL1 Short Introduction

USL-5UEs-URF solutions to the challenge by the  UN Seceretary-General

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
Buckminster Fuller ―

USL1 is a first humble offering and yet a major step forward to provide the first handful of snow to create snowballs and then the sequence of cascades of snow to resolve not only the top 5 global crises, but to push the future of mankind to the entirely new levels.

The central pieces of USL1 premises are these three: (the rest will be left to URF1 with the UN and governments)

USL can make the average students learn 12 years of school math in less than 1 year, but the ordinary people have been too skeptical as most cannot handle this kind of massive potential.

  1. So we currently push only USL1 (1.0 which will push forward the two of our quasi-Moore´s Law for Economy and Population growths), but it still has the cosmological economic and population consequences.
  2. USL1 alone will induce the biggest global GDP (per capita) growth changes in history over the next 20-30 years alone because USL1 will more than halve the doubling time for the GDP growths (or GDP per capita) roughly speaking for the majority of countries.
  3. USL1 can also roughly double the population doubling time, which means that we can reduce the pulation growth rates to roughly to half for most countries.

To resolve our toughest top 5 global crises is like an inevitable love story. USL1 and URF1 together can make this happen. USL1 alone can change the history the way it is, but without its partner, it is like a Pandora´s box only to be tamed by URF1 for which we desperately need your help and hope to raise the awareness of the USL1-5UE-URF1 proposals we are making.

The rest of the magic happens from this point on (at least for the national governments that will embrace the USL1 proposals.)

USL1 is designed to trigger major global transformations. It was created to trigger its induced human capital aided rapid solutions to the top 5 toughest global crises that will cost 4-10x larger than the entire annual world economic size, e.g. the total world (nominal) GDP, which will cost about 300-750 Trillion USD (and the transition to 95% Renewable Energy alone is expected to cost 100-220 Trillion USD that is 1.5-3x larger than the current entire world GDP) which means the average earthlings – us – need to pay the average 7-20% of the national economy (GDP) for over more than half a century. No country on earth can handle this right now, possibly except China in 10 years.

 

USL1 will be like a traditionally super-rich husband who magically can make not just hundreds of trilions of dollars or but quadrillions of dollars using his magic wand, which can

  1. revolutionize the entire math-science education,
  2. cosmologically boost the global economy, (and its rises in GDP per capita will do another magic trick)
  3. reduce the future population by 1-1.4 Billion less by 2050 & assure that the human population doesn´t exceed 10 Billions within next 100 years compared to without USL 1 (as people in the UN know that the fast-growing population is arguably the most serious pressures to not only to the social or economical issues, but also to the consumptions of energy, resources, and environment and all.)

But USL1 alone can shake up only education, economy, and the population growth, but this urgently needs his counter-part, his spiritual wife, called URF1.

URF1 is to use a portion of the cosmological surplus gains of the annual GDPs to resolve the environmental, energy, and resource as well as the social crises. URF1 cannot exist without the efficiency of USL1. USL1 alone cannot take care of the rest of the environmental and social issues So it urgently tries to find his spiritual wives from every country, NGOs, and the UN.

USL starts as a set of the biggest breakthroughs in Math & Science Education, but as a human capital, its potential economic impacts will be far larger than anyone has suspected. USL1 – although using only 20% of the full capacity of USL (Unified Super Learning) – can literally induce the cumulative surplus world (nominal) GDP of 2.5x larger than the current world economic size in 10 years, 10x larger in 20 years, and 40x in 30 years as a colossal human capital booster after 2-4 years of reforms to go globally (starting with the willing governments first and then the UN).

First our 2.5 minute quick bite for the USL1-URF1 plans.

High pitch: USL1-URF1 are designed to resolve the Top 5 global unsustainable challenges/crises which will cost $400-850 Trillion USD, which will require 8-20% of the average world GDP annually for the next over a half a century (but with the USL1-URF1, they can be resolved within 15-25 years after 5 year reforms, using only a fraction of the global surplus GDP that USL1 can trigger.) USL 1.0 alone will reduce the annual costs (as a fraction of GDP) to only half (if to resolve all for the first 15-25 years) to less than 1/4  (if to resolve  them all in about 25-40 years).

These are all essentially to resolve the conflicts between the economic progress vs. the environmental protections sustainability (as well as the social consequences), both extremely rapidly and far more effectively than the conventional modus operandi of the governments and the UN so far (hoping not to offend anyone).

  1. ENERGY: 95% transition to Renewable Energy & Resource depletion [UNEP, UNDESA, Circular Economy, MacArthur Foundation]
  2. ECONOMY: Sovereign Debt crisis [for EU, etc], Extreme Poverty [Millennium Development Goals (POST-2015)], and Poverty altogether [beyond the near future mode of the UN]
  3. Environmental crises: Ecosystem threats, Climate anomalies, non-Biodegradables, Deforestations, etc [UNEP, Greenpeace, etc]
  4. Empowerment: Overpopulation growth [UNDESA], Poverty [UNDP], Gender disparity (by empowering girls with the USL1-induced eduacation) [UN in general]
  5. Education: especially the STEM education stagnation (because they impact the GDP per capita growth more than any other factor, focusing especially on the girl education in the least developed countries first to speed up the current UN operations 2-3 times faster over the next 10 years. [UNDP, UNESCO, etc]

To resolve them all:

  • Time necessary to overcome them: the minimum of 50 years with the business as usual, including the plans from the UN´s (No offense intended).
  • Total Cost (more conservative): costing roughly 4x-10x of the entire current world economic size with the conventional approaches, averaging about 300-750 Trillion Dollars (US$ at the value of 2015)
  • Total Cost (to be more realistic, if the sovereign debts increase more rapidly and if the natural key resources deplete with the oil peak, etc): costing roughly 8x-20x of the entire current world economic size with the conventional approaches, averaging about 0.6-1.5 Quadrillion Dollars (US$ at the value of 2015)
  • Instead, we propose USL1-URF1 for resolving them exponentially more efficiently. These are economic and environmental crises (with the social consequences).
  • The current annual operation costs of each of the UN and World Bank (for its delivering loans, etc) is roughly about 0.1% of the world GDP. The annual operation cost for the Millenium Development Goals of the UN has been about 0.3% of the OECD GDP, meaning about 0.2% of the world GDP  in recent years (although originally supposed to be 0.7% of the OECD GNI). With the USL1-induced reforms as the world GDP will rapidly increase, we try to double-triple the operation costs of the UN and World Bank by 2030. So the two of the mega projects of the UN (POST-2015 and SE4All) can not only meet their targets, but also achieve 2x, 3x more than currently planning.

We are currently compling a working paper series called BOEC (Back Of the Envelope Calculations) Working Paper series which presents with the concise and easy-to-digest approaches primarily targeted for the policy-makers & shapers and the general public so that they can understand the logic and evidences without advanced math or economics (so that anyone with the 10th grade math can understand and at times if integrations or Differential Equations are needed, they are referred to the Appendices and still tried to minimize the complex logic or calculations as much as possible.) You can click it here as we are frequently adding and updating them since January 2015.

The Fundamental Premises Of USL1 And USL

USL will use the colossal human capital potentials of STEM education (especially Math at the moment), because USL can make the learning 10-20 times faster and more effective usually, to trigger the equally colossal gains in the economy in exchange of the willingness of the governments - under a new UN-led treay - to commit a reasonable ratios of the expected surplus gains in their economies to resolve the top 5 global crises. Each of the governments will mostly focus on resolving their crises, but they have to contribute to the world communities to prosper with the sustainable growths together not at the exclusion of half of the world that is poverty-stricken. USL is the fastest, easiest, and cheapest way to redistribute the effectively gained, USL1.0-induced surplus economy (in a sustainable manner) to solve the top 5 most serious global crises (for all governments and the UN) based on the 5UE principles: to transition towards the resource-based, rewable energy-based, sustainable global environment and the circular economy, to help end the poverty much faster than without, while making the average people learn math and science faster and easier than prodigies. As the original USL is too fast and too disruptive (as it can literally make average people learn math and science 1,000%-50,000% times faster) to transform and people are too skeptical, we are currently focusing on only the 20% of its capacity called USL1 (USL 1.0) for the UN and the national governments.

USL-5UE-URF Trio´S Environmental Implications

The total costs to transition to at least 95% Renewable Energy worldwide will cost about 3-6% of GDPs over the next 30-50 years, which is about 7-10 times moer than the annual investments that most countries of the world are currently putting in. And the progress will be exceedingly slow. Instead with USL1-induced international treaty with the UN, this will be resolved breezily because the USL1-induced GDP growths during this time will be extra surplus of the 7-12 times of the entire current world economic size. 1) to accelerate the progress towards the resource-based, sustainable communities, environments, and the circular economy which is otherwise difficult to be achieved very quickly... 2) to transition to the at least 95% renewable energy in 15-30 years not longer 3) as such, carbon issues are automatically resolved and there will be no hassle after the first few decades 4) the current SE4All objectives of the UN can achieve their future versions of 2, 3 goals with USL 1.0 alone. 5) the various other environmental crises such as the Amazon deforestations, plastics, the Fukushima radiation crises, etc, can be all resolved to the extents that the economic infusions are necessary.

USL1 Global Movements With Governments: 3 Steps & 3-Tier Economic Gains

STEP 1) Math Education Reform USL 0.25 at the city and state government levels (advancing their regional average math skill levels by half a year, which normally takes 1-2-3 decades to most of the OECD countries, in just 1-2 years). STEP 2) Math Education Reform USL 0.5 at the state government levels (advancing their regional average math skill levels by 1 year, which normally takes 3-5 decades to most of the OECD countries, in just a few years). STEP 3) Math Education Reform USL 1 at the national government & the UN treaty levels (advancing their regional average math skill levels by 2 years, which (almost) never happened to virtuallly all of the OECD member countries, in just 2-5 years). For each of the following step, we will try to create local, regional, or national Social Enterprise for each government - if they are willing as the gains are tremendous potentially - to share the profits together. So the governments will have the 3-layered benefits: ... 1) USL 0.x will enrich not only the math education that helps each USL x participating regions, 2) but also to prosper together as Social Enterprise board members of the corresponding regions. 3) once the UN gets involved, then the certain portions of the massive surpluses to their local or regional economies will be properly redistributed for the global social, energy, environmental, equality and poverty causes.
