THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS: TOMORROW WE LAUNCH
WE'LL SHOW YOU WON WON AND WHO LOST THE LAST THIRTY YEARS BATTLE IN THE WAR OF THE WORLD
We're revealing a snapshot of history: which countries won and lost the battle for power during the Golden Age since the end of the Cold War?
Starting with the last large reshuffle of the world order from the 1991, or the fall of USSR we have channeled annual data from sources that best calculate and visualise national strength to influence the world in the seven key power apps: economy, military, people, energy, state, culture and diplomacy.
Here's where they start in 1991. How will they finish 2020?
Every week after that there'll be more, much more.
Watch this space!
And, we want to invite everyone to join us and develop the League of Nations.
Our ideas are open to all and we want you to build this with us. Statisticians, historians and political scientists as well as Brexitbuffs and politicos.
So that - in a world of spin - we can all make facts speak louder than words.
And live history.
This is what we will do over the next year ending up in winter 2021 with you helping us to award the League of Nations 2021 winner at our Power Conference.
From now to then we'll do this for (and with) you:
First, the World Cup: we're going to track countries weekly like championship teams or top share prices
Second, the Leaders' Cup: we're going to track countries' strategies like who has the most powerful economy, military, government, diplomacy, people, resources, culture.
Third: the Policy Cup: we're going to track countries policies like who has the best healthcare, the best schooling.
Fourth: the winning Solution: change the manager, the striker, the sponsor - whatever it is - we can propose a smart power solution to identify the best global answers to our specific problem.
Why is this important?
The League of Nations harvests insights that should help countries make informed decisions about whether they are succeeding or failing in the court of best-practice policy and public opinion.
The League of Nations will:
- Help countries build better smart power grand strategy
- Help countries take advantage of others’ weaknesses and their strengths
- Allow countries to make informed decisions about their tactics and ensure they know where to focus
Yeah, it’s complicated, but trust us: we’ve done a lot of testing and data-science wonkery over the years to tweak how we weight results, and we're confident that the League of Nations is about as accurate a picture of countries’ clout as anyone can get.
But that's not all... I'll be back tomorrow.
