What do y’all think about the philosophy of self defense through training in T’ai Chi or or styles of Martial Arts in public schools? Or allowing Martial Arts practitioners the ability to live a comfortable wage?

Questions: When I ask these questions about USA military training options that will provide centers for training and sharing of technology internationally, using people TRAINED by our USA Military but who are no longer serving in our Armed Services. USA has military bases in many nations that could be used as Centers for training and technology. These should be a safe space for learning and sharing technology and health or other training. Should US Military Budget go for these Centers and move away from military use?

Question for Mr. Manzi- How does land use and land ownership impact economies of many previously colonized African nations? Would plans for redistribution of land into grassroots population-owned farms as viable resources for farming, food supply and borrowing and taxing for social protections on a community basis? Should land access again be the basis of wealth in Africa as it is in most of the world?

A comment for all of you. Days ago we were able to hear President Biden's speech in front of the US Congress. Beyond the political limits that a speech has, do you think that his consideration of social protection policies can influence the G20 and G7 to leave the fiscal austerity policies ?

We will open up for questions after Adriana's presentation. Please put any questions in the chat.

Other Question for the panelists. Do you think that continuing to use the indicator "middle-income countries" is misleading when considering social protection needs? Debt crises, devaluation impositions make the situation change very quickly in our countries
Karen, you are right about the land issue and the challenges inherited from colonial era in terms of sharing, what I know is that most countries are reforming land policy and a big part will be use more in agriculture.Africa Union has set up a continental policy on investment in agriculture, Almost all the countries are aligned on it.The land is not only a question of sovereignty but currently also an economic issue, the fact that situation that a big part of population of rural areas they will benefits and can contribute on economic growth and sustain social protection system.
