How an Average Family in Tokyo Can Buy a New Home
 
11:57
Coming to Japan from Canada (and the crazy housing market that is Vancouver), I was surprised to find out that the average family could afford a brand new house, even in the city of Tokyo. In this video I explore how this is possible. CORRECTION: The stats I gave for median annual household incomes in the United States and Canada are not quite right. I explain why in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61FnnmvFhHY.

It’s been that way for so long -- over a hundred years -- that we take it for granted. But how did it happen? There are many answers, of course. One is that the United States values the free market over government control of the economy. But here’s a point that is seldom made: It didn’t begin that way Before the country placed its trust in the free market, it trusted the government to make important business decisions. Or to put it another way, only after the government failed repeatedly to promote economic growth and only after private enterprise succeeded where the government failed did the United States start to develop a world beating economy. Let’s look at three telling examples: In 1808 John Jacob Astor formed the American Fur Company and marketed American furs around the world. Europeans adored beaver hats for their peerless warmth and durability. Astor gave them what they wanted. Instead of leaving the fur business to capable entrepreneurs like Astor, the government decided it wanted to be in on the action. So, it subsidized its own fur company run by a self-promoting government official named Thomas McKenney. McKenney should have won the competition. After all, he had the federal government backing him. But while Astor employed hundreds of people and still made a tidy profit, McKenney’s company lost money every year. Finally, Congress in 1822, came to its senses and ended the subsidies for McKenney and his associates. A similar situation developed in the 1840’s around the telegraph. The telegraph was the first step toward the instant communication we have today. Invented by Samuel Morse, the telegraph transmitted sound – as dots and dashes representing letters of the alphabet. Morse built his first telegraph wire between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore with the help of a government grant. Morse, more of an idealist than businessman, agreed to let the government own and operate the telegraph “in the national interest.” But the government steadily lost money each month it operated the telegraph. During 1845, expenditures for the telegraph exceeded revenue by six-to-one and sometimes by ten-to-one. Seeing no value in the invention, Congress turned the money-loser over to private enterprise. In the hands of entrepreneurs, the business took off. Telegraph promoters showed the press how it could instantly report stories occurring hundreds of miles away. Bankers, stock brokers and insurance companies saw how they could instantly monitor investments near and far. And dozens of other valuable uses were soon discovered. As the quality of service improved, telegraph lines were strung across the country – from 40 miles of wire in 1846 to 23,000 miles in 1852. By the 1860s, the U.S. had a transcontinental telegraph wire. And by the end of that decade entrepreneurs had strung a telegraph cable across the Atlantic Ocean. Why didn’t the US government profitably use what Morse had invented? Part of the answer is that the incentives for bureaucrats differ sharply from those of entrepreneurs. When government operated the telegraph, Washington bureaucrats received no profits from the messages they sent, and the cash they lost was the taxpayers’, not their own. So government officials had no incentive to improve service, to find new customers, or to expand to more cities. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/why-america-so-rich

Top 5 Smart Cities in Asia | Asian Smart Cities | (2019)

Top 5 Smart Cities in Asia | Asian Smart Cities | (2019) About this Video : In this video there are the top 5 smart cities in Asia. A smart city is an urban area that uses different types of electronic data collectionsensors to supply information which is used to manage assets and resources efficiently. This includes data collected from citizens, devices, and assets that is processed and analyzed to monitor and manage traffic and transportation systems, power plants, water supply networks, waste management, law enforcement, information systems, schools, libraries, hospitals, and other community services. The smart city concept integrates information and communication technology (ICT), and various physical devices connected to the network (the Internet of things or IoT) to optimize the efficiency of city operations and services and connect to citizens. Smart city technology allows city officials to interact directly with both community and city infrastructure and to monitor what is happening in the city and how the city is evolving. ICT is used to enhance quality, performance and interactivity of urban services, to reduce costs and resource consumption and to increase contact between citizens and government. Smart city applications are developed to manage urban flows and allow for real-time responses. A smart city may therefore be more prepared to respond to challenges than one with a simple "transactional" relationship with its citizens. Yet, the term itself remains unclear to its specifics and therefore, open to many interpretations. Other terms that have been used for similar concepts include cyberville, digital city, electronic communities, flexicity, information city, intelligent city, knowledge-based city, MESH city, telecity, teletopia, Ubiquitous city, wired city. Major technological, economic and environmental changes have generated interest in smart cities, including climate change, economic restructuring, the move to online retail and entertainment, ageing populations, urban population growth and pressures on public finances. The European Union (EU) has devoted constant efforts to devising a strategy for achieving 'smart' urban growth for its metropolitan city-regions. The EU has developed a range of programmes under 'Europe's Digital Agenda". In 2010, it highlighted its focus on strengthening innovation and investment in ICT services for the purpose of improving public services and quality of life. Arupestimates that the global market for smart urban services will be $400 billion per annum by 2020.

Mark Matson on Investor Mindsets
 
02:36
Amid headlines that could have the power to induce panic for some investors, I spoke with Liz Claman about the "investor prediction theory" and why that mindset could be detrimental to their portfolio performance. I noted that investors should try to avoid fear by diversifying globally and keep their sights set on the long-term, despite headline news causing concern.

Urbanisation is happening faster than at any time in human history. Globally, 900 million people are living in slums. Cities can’t add housing fast enough. Today, an estimated one billion vehicles are already bringing urban areas to a standstill. Cities consume three-quarters of the world’s energy each year and are responsible for around 50% of greenhouse gas emissions. These are challenges our cities have been facing for decades. But now some city leaders, businesses, and even citizens, are taking new approaches to tackling these old problems. They’re transforming their cities with technology. In Seoul, the use of data is seen as the key to tackling some of the big challenges of city life - like moving its people around. City workers here use sophisticated technology to understand and transform how the city - and its metro - can be run. The subway system transports 7 million people every day. It’s widely regarded as one of the best in the world. And the entire network from wheels to workers is driven by data. The speed and frequency of the trains can be constantly adjusted to keep everything running smoothly. “Smart” cameras measure how many passengers are boarding - and how quickly and sensors on the trains and tracks monitor every last component to provide early warnings when maintenance is required and prevent a costly breakdown. They use smartphone apps, social media and the web to give citizens real-time alerts and alternative routes - and keep this megacity running smoothly. Transport is just the start. Seoul’s city planners are using data to better understand more of the big challenges this fast-growing city faces, from air pollution to affordable housing. There are an estimated 30,000 start-ups in South Korea - many of which are offering innovative solutions to challenges like the city’s housing shortages. One company uses this open-source data to pair up young people looking for accommodation with older citizens who have rooms to spare. It’s a tiny offshoot of an industry that is growing rapidly in cities across the world. By 2020, this so-called “smart city” industry will be worth an estimated $1.5 trillion dollars. There’ll be investment in everything from networks and sensors to new apps and services, from the world’s biggest technology firms, to innovative new startups working from someone’s front room. This is the headquarters of FLARE, a start-up based in Kenya. Its young entrepreneurs are working with real-time data sourced from that most ubiquitous of modern innovations: the smartphone. Kenya’s capital, Nairobi is emerging as a vibrant tech hub. It is also one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Home to 4.2 million people, it’s more than doubled its population in the last 20 years. As in many cities in developing countries the ageing, inadequate infrastructure is struggling to cope. The problem isn't a shortage of ambulances - Nairobi has 150 of them - double the number needed in an average city. But the city has no centralized emergency service to coordinate them. Residents here are faced with 50 different numbers to call for help - and no guarantee when - or whether - their ambulance will arrive. The app aims to do the job of a centralized emergency service, compiling real-time data to coordinate and connect patients in need, available ambulances and the right hospitals or healthcare providers. Across the developing world, innovators are increasingly exploiting existing technology to help citizens cope with their cities’ overstretched infrastructure. In America, innovators are also looking ahead to the next wave - anticipating data-driven technologies that could help predict problems before they even happen. Boston, Massachusetts, is the 10th largest metropolitan area in America. It’s home to 4.8 million residents. And while Boston may be one of the oldest urban settlements in this country it’s fast developing world leading technology that could help shape the cities of the future. This is the mission of MIT’s Senseable City Lab - to anticipate the impact of technology on urban life and use it to transform the way cities are run.

Economic Engagement with Myanmar – the road ahead.
 
01:39:55
“Economic Engagement with Myanmar – the road ahead” After decades of military rule, Myanmar emerged onto the global scene with high profile visits of US President Obama and other global heads of state during the tenure of President Thein Sein, a former military general who to his credit undertook the first economic and democratic reforms that captured the imagination of global stakeholders & Myanmar citizens alike. The optimism of the acceleration of economic liberalization and an emergence of a vibrant middle class under the democratic transition to a new civilian government lead by Opposition leader and Nobel peace prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi was seen as a golden opportunity for Myanmar to capitalize on the global goodwill created that could have potentially resulted in significant foreign direct investment (FDI) for economic benefit for all stakeholders involved. Unfortunately, the events in Rakhine in August 2017 brought an end to the potential economic miracle opportunity. The aftermath of the Rohingya exodus without any prosecution to the perpetrators of the crimes or the absence of any leadership to a national healing process has created a significant reputational risk for most large Western businesses which has acted to date as natural hurdle rate for any sizeable investment. As such the optimism and dreams of an entire generation and a country seem to have dissipated quite rapidly with no end in sight. It is against this backdrop, the questions that we keep asking ourselves at the Myanmar Economic Forum, how does the West economically engage effectively with Myanmar & what does the term “engage effectively” mean or what are the outcomes that can be targeted? A panel conversation with: Dr. Thet Thet Khine, Member of Parliament Pyithu Hluttaw, Dagon Township; Dr. Saw Nay Nwe, Deputy Managing Director AA Medical Products Ltd.; and Kyawt Kay Khaing, Deputy CEO United Amara Bank Limited.

2018 Global Development Forum, Opening Keynote and Plenary Panel
 
01:39:42
The Project on U.S. Leadership in Development at CSIS will host the fourth annual Global Development Forum in spring of 2018 as a flagship event for the Chevron Forum series. The GDF serves as a complement to CSIS’ annual Global Security Forum. The 2018 Global Development Forum seeks to examine the role and purpose of official development assistance against a backdrop of rising incomes, economic growth, youth unemployment, and other continued complex challenges in many parts of the world. To address these challenges, the new U.S. administration will need to apply new approaches and remain highly flexible in a rapidly changing development landscape. This conference will explore ways in which the next few years will shape the role of the United States in international development, and how the United States can work with official donors and key partners, including the private sector, civil society, and multilateral institutions. The third annual Global Development Monitor, a publication that draws on CSIS’ diverse regional and thematic expertise, will be published around the conference. Opening Remarks Daniel F. Runde, William A. Schreyer Chair in Global Analysis, Director of the Project on U.S. Leadership in Development, CSIS Welcoming Remarks Dr. John J. Hamre, President & CEO, CSIS Opening Keynote Senator Christopher Coons, U.S. Senator from Delaware Getting from Billions to Trillions (9:45 a.m. – 10:45 a.m.) Register Here For many years, international development focused on increasing the amount of foreign aid to help solve global challenges.

What is SMART CITY? What does SMART CITY mean? SMART CITY meaning, definition & explanation
 
04:06
What is SMART CITY? What does SMART CITY mean? SMART CITY meaning - SMART CITY definition - SMART CITY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A smart city is an urban development vision to integrate multiple information and communication technology (ICT) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in a secure fashion to manage a city's assets – the city's assets include, but are not limited to, local departments' information systems, schools, libraries, transportation systems, hospitals, power plants, water supply networks, waste management, law enforcement, and other community services. The goal of building a smart city is to improve quality of life by using urban informatics and technology to improve the efficiency of services and meet residents' needs. ICT allows city officials to interact directly with the community and the city infrastructure and to monitor what is happening in the city, how the city is evolving, and how to enable a better quality of life. Through the use of sensors integrated with real-time monitoring systems, data are collected from citizens and devices – then processed and analyzed. The information and knowledge gathered are keys to tackling inefficiency. Information and communication technology (ICT) is used to enhance quality, performance and interactivity of urban services, to reduce costs and resource consumption and to improve contact between citizens and government. Smart city applications are developed with the goal of improving the management of urban flows and allowing for real time responses to challenges. A smart city may therefore be more prepared to respond to challenges than one with a simple 'transactional' relationship with its citizens. Yet, the term itself remains unclear to its specifics and therefore, open to many interpretations and subject. Other terms that have been used for similar concepts include cyberville, digital city, electronic communities, flexicity, information city, intelligent city, knowledge-based city, MESH city, telecity, teletopia, Ubiquitous city, wired city. Sectors that have been developing smart city technology include government services, transport and traffic management, energy, health care, water, innovative urban agriculture and waste management. Major technological, economic and environmental changes have generated interest in smart cities, including climate change, economic restructuring, the move to online retail and entertainment, ageing populations, urban population growth and pressures on public finances. The European Union (EU) has devoted constant efforts to devising a strategy for achieving 'smart' urban growth for its metropolitan city-regions. The EU has developed a range of programmes under 'Europe's Digital Agenda". In 2010, it highlighted its focus on strengthening innovation and investment in ICT services for the purpose of improving public services and quality of life. Arup estimates that the global market for smart urban services will be $400 billion per annum by 2020. Examples of Smart City technologies and programs have been implemented in Milton Keynes, Southampton, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Madrid and Stockholm. An important cluster of Smart City technological companies exists in Israel with Tel Aviv being awarded the World Smart City Award in 2014. Israeli companies are implementing Smart City solutions worldwide.

China's Second and Third Tier Cities Cease Mortgage Loans: Are Money Shortages Worsening?
 
03:41
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Since June this year, money shortages have occurred in Chinese banks. News has repeatedly indicated that banks in certain cities had stopped mortgage services. Recently, four banks in Shenzhen announced they would no longer provide mortgage loans. Several state-owned banks and banks in second and third tier cities also made the same decision. Analysts said that money shortages are spreading to the local banks. On September 10, China Real Estate Business reported that four banks in Shenzhen stopped mortgage services. On September 9, Chongqing Economic Times reported that several banks in Chongqing have stopped offering mortgages to second hand home buyers due to tightening credit limits. On the same day, anhuinews.com claimed that four banks in Hefei had stopped mortgage loan from second home buyers. State-owned banks, including Agriculture Bank, Bank of Communications, and Industrial & Commercial Bank, have made the same move. It has been reported that this phenomenon will likely continue. Xie Tian, Professor at the University of South Carolina Aiken Business School: "We saw money shortages one month ago. In fact, it is the state-owned central banks and major banks that were short of money. The Chinese regime had to inject several hundred billions Yuan to temporarily solve the problem. Now money shortages have spread to local banks. It is indeed spreading." Sources said that since the money shortages occurred, some banks began to limit mortgage loans. They have stopped second-hand home loan services. If the banks hadn't stopped second-hand loan services, it would increased their interest rates. At the end of August, banks in Beijing cancelled discount deals on interest rates for mortgages. Instead, some banks increased 20% on the standard interest rate. China's National Business Daily has reported that many banks have ceased mortgage services in Guangzhou. They have run out credit. Jie Sen, NTD special economic commentator, said that in second and third tier cities, mortgage loans have slowed down and have stagnated. It is the CCP's measures to protect the banking system. Jie Sen: "The CCP realized its failure of it's measures on real estate control. Instead, the housing bubble has grown larger. Properties are always demanded in first-tier cities, yet risks in second and third tier cities are increasing. In order to protect the banking system, they need to control credit limits, which is a method of self-protection." According to ftchinese.com on September 6, China's Central Banks injected several hundreds billion Yuan. This was via non-public reverse repo agreements into the banking system in June and July. These funds are due in the near future. Xie Tian believes that the authorities adjusting policies didn't completely solve the problem of money shortages. Maybe the new leadership does not really want to take the economic burden from the previous regime. Thus, Li Keqiang deliberately let the money shortage break out, to get rid of the burden. Recently, Li Ka-shing, Asia's richest person, has been pulling his property out of China. On September 3, Bank of American sold two billion H-shares of China Construction Bank for over HK$11.7 billion (US$1.47 billion). Soon, other foreign banks sold all their shares in China's four major state-owned banks. Does the foreign investors' exit from China have a link to the Chinese banks money shortages? Xie Tian: "The two don't have any direct links. It is because state-owned banks internally are tight on cash. Foreign investors are not optimistic about China, and in addition, the Chinese economy is declining. Thus, it is not directly linked with money shortages, but both certainly have influenced each other." Xie Tian said that foreign investors' leaving would undermine the CCP's and investors' confidence. It could trigger housing and stock market bubbles to burst. 《神韵》2013世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

En juillet dernier, la mairie pouvait senorgueillir de voir Paris se classer à la 3e place des villes les plus attractives du monde auprès des dirigeants de grands groupes, selon la dernière édition du Global Cities Investment Monitor, un observatoire réalisé par OpinionWay pour Paris-Ile de France Capitale Economique et KPMG. Les données de recensement de la population que vient de publier lInsee ce mercredi 27 décembre inviteront les édiles parisiens, avec Anne Hidalgo en porte-étendard, à moins denthousiasme. Entre 2010 et 2015, la population parisienne a en effet fortement diminué, passant de 2.243.833 à 2.206.488 habitants. Soit 37.345 résidents en moins dans la capitale en seulement 5 ans (-1,66% sur la période). Cest léquivalent de la population dune ville comme Montélimar qui a plié bagages ! Si le XIIIe (+0,92%) et le XIVe arrondissement (+1,22%) gagnent des habitants, les arrondissements centraux de la capitale se vident à un rythme soutenu : -11,1% sur la période dans le VIIIe, -9,61% dans le IIe et -6,62% dans le VIIe, daprès les données compilées par Le Parisien. Comment expliquer ce phénomène ? Dans une étude publiée ce même jour sur "les mouvements naturels et migratoires" entre départements, lInsee indique que le solde naturel de la capitale est pourtant positif. Autrement dit, il y a plus de naissances à Paris que de décès sur la période 2010-2015. Lorganisme comptabilise très exactement 15.882 naissances de plus que de décès chaque année entre 2010 et 2015. Le problème, cest que chaque année au cours de la même période, 23.351 habitants ont quitté Paris pour sinstaller dans un autre département ou à létranger (soit un solde migratoire entre arrivées et départs négatif). Le bilan entrées-sorties parisien (solde naturel plus solde migratoire) sest même détérioré par rapport à la tendance observée entre 1990 et 2010 (-0,6 point).Les difficultés à se loger sont un premier élément dexplication. Comme lindiquait Challenges en octobre dernier, le parc locatif privé a perdu 65.419 logements entre 2001 et 2016. Mais dans le même temps, le parc HLM progressait de 75.971 unités. Sur la période, le parc de résidences principales (HLM et privé) restait en hausse de 10.552 unités. Loffre de logements a donc plutôt eu tendance à augmenter au cours des précédentes années, même sil devient de plus en plus ardu de trouver un bien dans le parc privé. Dailleurs, dans ce dernier, les loyers de marché à la relocation ont progressé de 11,3% de 2010 à 2015, selon lindice Clameur. Sans parler des prix de limmobilier à lachat qui ont aussi explosé : +18% en 5 ans, selon les notaires. Lengouement de certains propriétaires pour la location saisonnière de type Airbnb, qui vide certains quartiers de Paris comme Le Marais, pèse aussi dans la balance. Toutefois, dautres éléments peuvent expliquer ces départs, comme la pollution, le stress, la propreté, le manque dinfrastructures pour les familles ou les problèmes récurrents de transport. Ce nest pas un hasard si 60% des cadres franciliens souhaitaient quitter la région parisienne pour aller vivre ailleurs, selon un sondage de Cadremploi publié en août dernier. Paris fait ainsi partie des rares grandes villes à perdre des habitants. Parmi les 20 plus grandes agglomérations, seulement trois autres sont dans ce cas : Le Havre : -3.131 habitants entre 2010 et 2015 (soit -1,78%) Nice : -782 habitants (-0,23%) Saint-Etienne : -203 habitants (-0,12%)Inversement, les villes les plus attractives en termes de cadre de vie et demploi gagnent des habitants. La palme revient à Toulouse (+30.139 habitants), suivie de Lyon (+28.931 habitants) et Montpellier (+20.288 habitants). Dans le classement des villes par population, Montpellier gagne dailleurs une place entre 2010 et 2015 et dépasse désormais Strasbourg. De même, Nîmes passe de la 20e à la 19e position au détriment de Villeurbanne.

Study Predicts New Economic Superpower By 2030
 
01:12
By 2030, a new study predicts future economic superpower. A study on the global economic power structure predicts that by the year 2030, China will pass the United States as the world's economic super power. The United States will remain a top global power, but no longer number one. The report states: "China alone will probably have the largest economy in the world, surpassing that of the United States a few years before 2030 ... Asia will have surpassed North America and Europe combined in terms of global power, based upon GDP, population size, military spending, and technological investment." After four years of intelligence gathering and analysis of global trends by the National Intelligence Council, the new report predicts markets for countries worldwide, including a list of countries that are at a "high risk of state failure," like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Rwanda, Yemen, Somalia, Burundi and Uganda. Another prediction made by the report is that the majority of the world's population will not be living in poverty for the first time in history, but the balance of this upward mobility is delicate and can be threatened by a lack of access to natural resources. Do you think that China will have the largest and most powerful economy in the coming years?

China: facial recognition and state control | The Economist
 
05:42
China is the world leader in facial recognition technology. Discover how the country is using it to develop a vast hyper-surveillance system able to monitor and target its ethnic minorities, including the Muslim Uighur population. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy Improving lives, increasing connectivity across the world, that's the great promise offered by data-driven technology - but in China it also promises greater state control and abuse of power. This is the next groundbreaking development in data-driven technology, facial recognition. And in China you can already withdraw cash, check in at airports, and pay for goods using just your face. The country is the world's leader in the use of this emerging technology, and China's many artificial intelligence startups are determined to keep it that way in the future. Companies like Yitu. Yitu is creating the building blocks for a smart city of the future, where facial recognition is part of everyday life. This could even extend to detecting what people are thinking. But the Chinese government has plans to use this new biometric technology to cement its authoritarian rule. The country has ambitious plans to develop a vast national surveillance system based on facial recognition. It'll be used to monitor it's 1.4 billion citizens in unprecedented ways. With the capability of tracking everything from their emotions to their sexuality. The primary means will be a vast network of CCTV cameras. 170 million are already in place and an estimated 400 million new ones will be installed over the next three years. The authorities insist this program will allow them to improve security for citizens, and if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear. But not everyone is convinced. Hong Zhenkuai is a former magazine editor who was ousted by the government. He feels like he's under constant surveillance. Already the authorities are using facial recognition to name and shame citizens, even for minor offenses like jaywalking. In Beijing they're using the technology to prevent people stealing rolls of loo paper from public toilets, and across China police officers are now trialing sunglasses and body cameras loaded with facial and gesture recognition technology - it's helping them to identify wanted suspects in real-time. What worries some people here is that as the technology develops, so too does the capacity for it to be abused. Some of those most at risk in this hyper surveillance future are the ethnic minorities in China. In Xinjiang province, the Chinese government is wary of the separatist threat posed by the Muslim Uighur population. According to local NGOs, an estimated 1 million Uighurs are being detained indefinitely in secretive internment camps, where some are being subject to abuse. It's been called the largest mass incarceration of a minority population in the world today. The authorities are using facial recognition cameras to scan people's faces before they enter markets. The system alerts authorities if targeted individuals stray 300 meters beyond their home. In the future the government plans to aggregate even more data and build a predictive policing program that imposes even tighter controls here. Without checks and balances, China will keep finding new ways to violate the human rights of its citizens. What's already happening in Xinjiang is a warning the rest of the world must heed. What are the forces shaping how people live and work and how power is wielded in the modern age? NOW AND NEXT reveals the pressures, the plans and the likely tipping points for enduring global change. Understand what is really transforming the world today – and discover what may lie in store tomorrow.
