AP Photo Top News States are being upended by the market Mother Nature and Moore’s law Inthe 1960s there was a popular sitcom — “Get Smart” — about a hapless secret agent named Maxwell Smart played by Don Adams Smart went by the code name “Agent 86” “Get Smart” famously introduced the shoe phone to American audiences but the show also introduced something else: its own version of the bipolar world Do you remember the name of the intelligence agency Maxwell Smart worked for It was called “Control” And do you remember the name of Control’s global opponent It was called “Kaos” — “an international organisation of evil” The creators of “Get Smart” were ahead of their time Because it increasingly appears that the post-post-Cold War world is cleaving into the world of “order” and the world of “disorder” — or into the world of “Control” and the world of “Kaos” How so First we said goodbye to imperialism and colonialism and all their methods of controlling territory Then we said goodbye to the Cold War alliance system which propped up many weak and newly independent states with money to build infrastructure and to buy weapons to control their borders and people — because the stability of every square in the global chessboard mattered to Washington and Moscow And lately we’ve been saying goodbye to top-down iron-fisted monarchies and autocracies which have been challenged by massively urbanised technologically empowered citizens So today you have three basic systems: order provided by democratic inclusive governments; order imposed by autocratic exclusivist governments; and ungoverned or chaotically governed spaces where rickety failed states militias tribes pirates and gangs contest one another for control but there is no single power center to answer the phone — or if they do it falls off the wall Look around: Boko Haram in Nigeria kidnaps 250 schoolgirls and then disappears into a dark corner of that country The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria or ISIS a ragtag jihadist militia carves out a caliphate inside Syria and Iraq and boasts on Twitter of beheading opponents NATO decapitates Libya’s regime and sets loose a tribal-militia war of all against all which when combined with the crackup of Chad spills arms and refugees across African borders threatening Tunisia and Morocco Israel has been flooded with more than 50000 Eritreans and Sudanese refugees who crossed the Sinai Desert by foot bus or car looking for work and security in Israel’s “island of order” And just since October the US has been flooded with more than 50000 unaccompanied children from Guatemala El Salvador and Honduras “They’re fleeing from threats and violence in their home countries” noted Voxcom “where things have gotten so bad that many families believe that they have no choice but to send their children on the long dangerous journey north” Why is this happening now Well just as I’ve argued that “average is over” for workers now “average is over for states” too Without the Cold War system to prop them up it is not so easy anymore for weak states to provide the minimums of security jobs health and welfare And thanks to rapid advances in the market (globalisation) Mother Nature (climate change plus ecological destruction) and Moore’s Law (computing power) some states are just blowing up under the pressure Yes we blew up Iraq but you can’t understand the uprising in Syria unless you understand how a horrendous four-year drought there coupled with a demographic explosion undermined its economy You can’t understand Egypt’s uprising without linking it to the 2010 global wheat crisis and soaring bread prices which inspired the anti-Hosni Mubarak chant: “Bread Freedom Dignity” You also can’t understand Egypt’s stress without understanding the challenge that China’s huge labour pool poses in a globalised world to every other low-wage country Go into a souvenir shop in Cairo buy a Pyramids ashtray and turn it over I’ll bet it says “Made in China” Today’s globalisation system rewards countries that make their workers and markets efficient enough to take part in global supply chains of goods and services faster than ever — and punishes those who don’t more harshly than ever You can’t understand the spread of ISIS or the Arab Spring without the relentless advance in computing and telecom — Moore’s Law — creating so many cheap command-and-control Internet tools that superempower small groups to recruit adherents challenge existing states and erase borders In a flat world people can see faster than ever how far behind they are and organise faster than ever to protest When technology penetrates more quickly than wealth and opportunity watch out The combined pressures of the market Mother Nature and Moore’s Law are creating the geopolitical equivalent of climate change argues Michael Mandelbaum author of “The Road to Global Prosperity” and “some familiar species of government can’t survive the stress” So please spare me the

8:28 am Another question we do not ask is why no former Minister of Human Resource Development has ever managed to end the licence raj Related News The most eloquent comment on the crisis in Indian higher education comes in the form of the long lines of anxious students outside colleges at this time of year Students who have worked hard to get marks in the nineties fear they may not get admission to the colleges of their choice because there are ‘cut-off’ rates that can even be 100 per cent The very idea of ‘cut-offs’ is peculiar to India as are these queues outside colleges But this is so normal for us that the media paid more attention to the ugly spat between the UGC (University Grants Commission) and the Vice-Chancellor of Delhi University The UGC should not have interfered in the university’s right to devise its own courses but the academics activists and political commentators who supported the Vice-Chancellor failed to ask why there should not be autonomy all the way down the line They never asked why the licence quota raj that controls the building of more colleges and universities should not be ended It is because nobody asks the right questions that standards of higher education are so low today that Indian universities and colleges never rank among the best in the world Another question we do not ask is why no former Minister of Human Resource Development has ever managed to end the licence raj Why has it been allowed to breed corruption poor standards of learning and education mafias Since new colleges and universities are built by quota under the licence raj it is usually senior political leaders who end up getting the licences This enables them to grab expensive urban land in the name of building a college or an institute of technical training It was this licence raj that prevented Kapil Sibal from allowing 1500 new universities to be built The former HRD Minister told me in 2009 that India needed 1500 new universities to be built urgently to cope with the rapidly increasing numbers of students who now choose to go to college Ironically those who do not manage to find admission in Indian colleges find it quite easy to find a place in foreign universities So it is not the lack of ability that cuts short their learning but lack of opportunity All this has happened in the name of making college education affordable for students from financially backward communities In fact what the leftist thinkers who control academia did was restrict learning and lower standards The only solution now is to disband the UGC and its technical cousin the AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) People who run private technical colleges say that the powers of the AICTE to micromanage technical education are limitless So technically you can be fined for helping your son do his science homework The new Minister of HRD has the chance to do for higher education what Dr Manmohan Singh did for Indian industry in the Nineties: abolish the licence raj When she makes her new education policy she needs to begin by stating that she wants 1500 new universities to be built over the next five years and anyone who wants to build them will need no licences The UGC can be restricted to setting standards for accreditation And providing financial assistance to needy students instead of to institutions as it currently does Student loans and scholarships should become its main endeavour instead of interference in academic courses and salaries Experts estimate that Indian universities face a shortage of more than 5 lakh faculty members and that one big reason for this is the low salaries on offer So the best Indian professors prefer to teach in foreign universities The crisis in higher learning is so daunting that instead of worrying about Smriti Irani’s educational qualifications what we should worry about is whether she has the guts to make a real difference She has the choice of just tinkering as her predecessors have done or of going down in history as a liberator If she makes the second choice she will need immense courage because of the vested interests lined up against her What might help persuade her to dismantle the licence raj is if she keeps in mind that unless she does this there is not the smallest chance of the Prime Minister’s dream of a shining new India coming true This dream can turn into a real nightmare as the Prime Minister himself often points out if the Indian economy is unable to create jobs for the 15 million young Indians who come into the workforce every year These jobs can only be created if these young Indians are educated enough to be employable How can they if we leave higher learning in the hands of officials whose main aim is to keep their own jobs
