Across today’s faltering world, often two key questions; who will come first, the next financial crisis or the next election. With some 100 national general elections slated for the next 500 days, at least in Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is now calling the next general election on September 20, 2021. Bravo, Prime Minister
Winning elections during pandemics It’s like adding up the list of obstacles faced by the last Olympics in Japan, but Justin Trudeau will win for the following three reasons. Understanding the future, because unemployment causes unrest, therefore taking care of citizens and their sanity will create a smooth transition, understanding world affairs, the refugee crisis in a way, the climate and social justice in somehow and understand women and minorities.
The triangulations of the above earned Trudeau popularity across the world, which also bounced off Canada’s immigrant population as positive messages from overseas. Canada is the number one brand in the world and Trudeau has what it takes to play in this space. Other factors, like the dispersed opposition still inventing anti-campaigns without real content and myopic illusions still have a way to go. Of course, there have been mistakes and excuses, but the experiences and daily battles on the frontlines in front of the cameras sum up a new majority. The next toughest frontier is the mid-sized business economy and through meritocracy Canada has unlimited potential. (Author’s disclosure; liberal for 50 years, harsh criticism of policies affecting small and medium-sized enterprises and lack of entrepreneurial mobilization and exportability)
Overall, however, post-pandemic economies are testing new narratives, as the certainty of an exotic disruption keeps leadership awake and citizens on edge. The world demands great changes; therefore, it is no longer important where you sit but rather where you stand.
Two new challenges, mask on the face and pockets with holes, when billions wander through shattered economies where the lack of real value creation has crashed into value manipulations shaking national foundations. Will the jungle of speculative finance provide the ultimate answers to hide behind bushes or Robin Hood sorts saving so bravely, or just mock humanity? Pandemic needling has already kicked world public opinion in the wrong place; Running out of drops, the world’s economies already crunching on stress tests, black-masked awaiting financial collapse, appear to be kicking humanity in the wrong place, once again. The choppy but unshaken cocktail of “Remote + Occupation + Living + Health + Trust + Economy + Business + Skills + Future” now shows its lingering power and hangover.
Ignoring the “unemployment” of futurism is less an economic issue than an entrepreneurial challenge. As the survival of billions of displaced, replaced and misplaced workers advances towards a new “jobless” of futurism, haunting like a mysterious case study for the academic mind, there is an urgent need for an entrepreneurial mindset and real attitudes of value creation. The silence is deep; the confused murmur only obscures the clarity of vision. Excessive manipulation of economic data by most countries to fit their own national agenda and unlimited printing of currencies, continuous or delayed masking will no longer silence the world’s population.
Shout they go
Two new options; The post-pandemic recovery is pushing all nations towards new thinking. The future of the global diversity of micro-commerce, micro-manufacturing and micro-exports is hidden to save national economies and restless citizens from populism. The rise of the medium-sized economy, nation by nation, yet so feared by the main players in the national economy and their subjugated policies.
No nation without development will stay in the race, no leadership without meritocracy and mobilization skills will survive. Decipherable only through global supply chain mindsets, visible only through digitized economies of entrepreneurial mindsets, and actionable only through entrepreneurial initiatives, such deployments are starving meritocratic administrations and starving world era leaders. This is where the mastery of the national mobilization of entrepreneurship on digital platforms of innovative excellence and exportability finds the key words. This is also where a new understanding explores the revival of global trade in harmony and the blending of improved skills with entrepreneurship to cement progress.
Two new adjustments, the evolutionary secrets hidden in the elimination of “economic myopia” when everything focused only on the local and internal economy. Too much focus only on local boundaries, while ignoring the mobilization of the global era and entrepreneurial advances and not exploring collaborative synthesis involving extremely populated worlds are just pitfalls. Exploring globalization and purchasing power in a way, so we need new mindsets with less newspaper reading and more looking at the world atlas. Binoculars are not used to look at the feet but to look beyond the horizon. The digital divide is a mental divide; rejection of change and progress is fear of competition and fear of entrepreneurship is fear of exposing skill levels, therefore, post-covid savings are not about numbers, and they are all motivated by the entrepreneurial spirit, a deep immersion necessary to differentiate the new powers and “the world without borders – competitiveness”
The search for fearless warriors, identify the front-line teams on national economic developments and differentiate on the lack of understanding on the national mobilization of entrepreneurship, now the absence of such a handicap to national economic survival. While there are some 200 nations competing and some 10,000 cities involved, there are around 100,000 trade unions, there are around 11,000 chambers and they alone have 45 million members. Why are such numbers important, when most of the trade groups and national ministries of trade and commerce, export promotion agencies, despite decades of existence, have seriously missed digitization, not by their fault, but rather too focused on arbitration and the mindset of trade facilitation? What would it take to create a new state of mind? ready to uplift the small and medium economy on digital platforms, when these institutions are already halfway there?
The four players in small business economies: One: The founders are the real entrepreneurial risk takers, the job creators and the grassroots prosperity fertilizers. Two: Trade groups and national chambers are the umbrella where these founders come together to improve trade flows. Three: National governments collecting taxes from founders are policy makers to improve trades. Four: Customers are the buyers who prove the validity of the existence of this small and medium business, study more on Google
Facts from around the world; normally, founders of small and medium-sized businesses are excluded as quirky thinkers, risk-takers and under-contributors on the photo-op tracks. Trade associations and chambers treat them as being too small to pay what big companies pay in dues. National economic developments just prefer lip service to the way they serve big business. Small and medium business customers are grateful and loyal to companies ONLY with superior performance, quality of goods and services of real value.

Why is this so important? These are the four groups making up four pillars, each with special characters, each in need of special treatment and not just lumped together as a sort of “SME crisis” swept under the rug repeatedly over the past decades. It is also not a flag raising ceremony at the local town hall; gala-plastic-award-dinner-night or declaring a flag-covered SME week, none of this will work in the post-pandemic recovery. National mobilization of entrepreneurship will boost the economies of medium-sized enterprises and create much-needed growth.
The rest is easy
