Tommy Douglas CCF 50th Anniversary Speech on Health Care
 
01:16
Tommy Douglas speech 3 years before his death at the 50th anniversary of the founding of the CCF. From Democracy Now (http://www.democracynow.org) When you go back to your constituency and you run into somebody who says, Oh, its a good idea for you soft-hearted humanitarians, but we cant afford it, let me give you a simple statistic, which you can put down on a piece of paper and carry in your hand. And that is that our friends in the United States are spending nine percent of their gross national product—and they get a higher per capita gross national product than we do—they spend nine percent of their gross national product on healthcare, and 34 million of their people have no healthcare coverage. And in Canada, we spend seven percent of our gross national product, and every man, woman and child in Canada is covered under Medicare. If you want a two-tiered health program, then just continue the way were going. And I remind you that in this movement, we pledged ourselves fifty years ago that we would provide healthcare for every man, woman and child, irrespective of their color, their race or their financial status, and, by God, were going to do it!

Beyond GDP: How to Measure Progress
 
03:04
The European Commission published today a Communication on how to measure progress in a changing world. It proposes to go beyond the best known measure of economic activity, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and to develop more inclusive indicators that provide a more reliable knowledge base for better public debate and policy-making. Stavros Dimas, Commissioner in charge of Environment, explained in a press conference that GDP was not intended to be a measure of wellbeing and does not pick-up on issue that are vitally important to the quality of lifes such as a clean environment, social cohesion or even how happy people are. The Communication outlines five actions and among them it proposes a pilot of an environmental index that will assess progress in the main fields of environmental policy and protection. The index will cover areas such as greenhouse gas emissions, loss of natural landscapes, air pollution, water use and waste generation. 00:00:00 Title 00:00:05 General view of the press conference room 00:00:10 SOUNDBITE (English) Stavros Dimas, EC Member in charge of Environment: GDP is a rigorous indicator for economic purposes and it will continue to play a role in political decision making. But GDP is no more than an indicator of economic activity. It was not intended to be a measure of wellbeing, it does not pick-up on issue that are vitally important to the quality of our lifes such as a clean environment, social cohesion or even how happy people are. 00:00:45 Cutaway journalist attending the press conference 00:00:50 SOUNDBITE (English) Stavros Dimas: A pilot of an environmental index will be proposed in 2010 that will assess progress in the main fields of environmental policy and protection. The index will cover areas such as greenhouse gas emissions, loss of natural landscapes, air pollution, water use and waste generation. 00:01:12 Cutaway 00:01:18 SOUNDBITE (English) Elisabet Falemo, State Secretary to Andreas Carlgren, Swedish Minister for the Environment: The transformation to an eco-efficient economy requires other national indicators and tools in addition to GDP that provides better signals for policy makers regarding the path towards an eco-efficient economy. 00:01:35 Cutaway 00:01:42 SOUNDBITE (English) Stavros Dimas: An example: if a country cuts down its forest and sells its timber, this will increase its GDP, but in the medium to long term, destroying the natural capital which is not measured will not be beneficial for the country, for the environment or for the wellbeing of the people. 00:02:09 Cutaway 00:02:15 SOUNDBITE (English) Elisabet Falemo: I think that GDP is established rather well for what it stands for, but we need complementary systems. What it is important to know is that quality of life and welfare is not only material. And we need to put figures on even other qualities of life. In that way the GDP will not be the only way to measure the welfare. 00:02:52 Cutaway 00:02:58 End

Singapores health system saves money and lives

The U.S. spends nearly 17 percent of its gross domestic product on health care, while Singapore spends about 4 percent of its own GDP. According to the World Health Organization, Singapore has one of the best health care systems. The countrys 4 million people are required to save a portion of each paycheck, which then goes into an interest-bearing savings account used to pay future medical bills. Worldfocus special correspondent Daljit Dahliwal and producers Mary Lockhart and Ara Ayer report from Singapores hospitals.

Rebalancing the World Economy
 
04:01
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report. In September, the Group of 20 met in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was the third Group of 20 summit in less than a year. Leaders of the major developed and developing economies discussed ways to fix the world financial system. In April they had agreed to do everything necessary to prevent a collapse. This time they noted their success, but warned that the "process of recovery and repair remains incomplete." The presidents and prime ministers launched what they called a Framework for Strong, Sustainable and Balanced Growth. At the same time, they agreed to make the G20 the main group to guide international economic cooperation. For years that has been a job for the Group of 8: Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and the United States. But the world's economic power structure has changed. The G8 leaves out developing nations with big populations and growing economies like China, India and Brazil. In Pittsburgh, rich nations agreed to also give up some of their representation in the International Monetary Fund. And they called for more voting power for developing nations in the World Bank. Ghiyath Nakshbendi is a professor of international business at American University in Washington, D.C. He said the decision to cooperate on economic policy is important, given how much Gross Domestic Product the G20 represents. He said that when you talk about the G20, you are talking about nineteen countries plus the European Union that produce ninety-five percent of the G.D.P. in the world. Martin Edwards is an assistant professor at Seton Hall University in New Jersey who has written about the I.M.F. He says increasing the influence of developing nations will increase the standing of the fund and the World Bank. But he notes that having more players at the table could also mean more disputes. In terms of financial reforms, experts say there is widespread support for some proposals to control risks. But others are unpopular in America and Britain. These include linking the pay of bankers to their bank's long-term performance. G20 leaders plan to meet next in Canada in June and in South Korea next November. They face many hard choices in the coming months. Professor Nakshbendi says the biggest question is to what extent are they willing to follow their own advice. And that's the VOA Special English Economics Report. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 09Oct2009)

The militarisation of Sri Lanka society and Western PC election
 
08:06
A STUDY by a Mumbai based think-tank, Strategic Foresight Group (SFG), has confirmed what many long feared: Sri Lanka has emerged as the most militarised society in South Asia. More worrying is the conclusion that it could get worse unless urgent action is initiated towards ending the 23-year-old conflict. The study, "Cost of conflict in Sri Lanka," says the island nation has 8,000 military personnel per one million population. Even Pakistan — of which it is said that while every country has an army the Pakistan army has a country — has only half that number, 4,000 military personnel per one million population. The figures for other South Asian countries are: Nepal 2,700; India 1,300; and Bangladesh 1,000. In terms of military expenditure as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP), too, Sri Lanka spent the most — 4.1 per cent. In the case of Pakistan it is 3.5 per cent; 2.5 per cent in the case of India and Nepal; and 1.5 per cent in the case of Bangladesh. The figure cannot be expected to be an accurate representation of the actualities as there is very little information and knowledge about the military expenditure by the LTTE. "Sri Lanka's defence expenditure as a percentage of its GDP is the largest not only in South Asia but is also higher than other conflict-ridden countries such as Colombia, Myanmar, Sierra Leone, Sudan, the Philippines, and Uganda to name a few," the researchers of the study, Semu Bhatt and Devika Mistry, note. In other words, even among the conflict-afflicted countries there could be very few that have witnessed the level of militarisation seen in Sri Lanka, variously described as "paradise on earth" and "pearl of the Indian Ocean." The study has established a direct linkage between the ongoing ethnic conflict and the steep rise in defence spending. "Sri Lanka witnessed one of the most dramatic increase in military expenditure from an allocation of 0.5 per cent of the GDP in the 1970s to as high as 6.3 per cent in 2000," the study said. It is supposed to have declined to 4 per cent of the GDP after the 2002 Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) brokered by Norway. The figures cited in the study pertain to the 2004-05 period. The CFA, which began to come under strain in mid-2003, has now been almost reduced to a piece of paper; the Sri Lankan forces and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam have been engaged in an intense "undeclared war" in the latest phase for over four months now. It is unlikely that the defence expenditure as a percentage of the GDP for 2005-06 can be contained at the level seen in the period after the CFA. The strength of the Sri Lankan Army, 15,000 in the early 1970s, is now 1.5 lakh. Its arsenal includes multi-barrel rocket launchers, long range artillery, mortars, battle tanks, and armoured personnel carriers. The Navy is much smaller; it has 20,000 personnel and uses fast attack craft with 23 mm guns, inshore and offshore patrol vessels, landing craft, etc. The Air Force uses Kfir supersonic fighter-bombers, MiG-23s, and choppers, including MI-24s.

What Is the Genuine Progress Index
 
07:30
What is the Genuine Progress Index (GPI)? The GPI is a holistic measurement tool that government and communities can use to account for the real costs and benefits of economic activity. It counts beneficial activities as positive, and harmful activities as negative, and it provides a systematic way to integrate economic issues with environmental and social concerns. Why is the GPI important to Nova Scotians? •Using the GPI will enable us to make better decisions now and for the future. Properly valuing economic, social, environmental, human, and cultural assets means decisions will be made with our wellbeing in mind and in a way that leaves a better world for our children and grandchildren. •Using the GPI puts a value on things we say are most important, such as health, education, a clean environment, decent living standards, economic security, spending time with our family, feeling connected to our community, and our overall quality of life. The GPI also reports on how income is distributed and counts and puts a value on reducing the gap between rich and poor. •The GPI also measures the real costs of pollution, environmental degradation, crime, sickness, and risk factors like smoking, obesity, and physical activity—costs that are hidden in our conventional economic accounts. •The GPI is fully aligned with existing Nova Scotian government priorities and key policy documents, such as Opportunities for Sustainable Prosperity (an economic development strategy), Weaving the Threads (a social policy framework) and the Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act (2007).

Stockholm is the capital and the largest city of Sweden. It is the site of the national Swedish government, the Riksdag (parliament), and the official residence of the Swedish monarch as well as the prime minister. Since 1980, the monarch has resided at Drottningholm Palace outside of Stockholm and uses the Royal Palace of Stockholm as his workplace and official residence. As of 2009, the Stockholm metropolitan area is home to approximately 22% of Sweden's population, and contributes to 28% of Sweden's gross domestic product[citation needed]. Stockholm is the most populous city in Sweden with a population of 825,057 in the municipality (2009), 1.25 million in the urban area (2005), and 2 million in the metropolitan area (2009). Founded circa 1250, Stockholm has long been one of Sweden's cultural, media, political, and economic centres. Its strategic location on 14 islands on the south-central east coast of Sweden at the mouth of Lake Mälaren, by the Stockholm archipelago, has been historically important. Stockholm has been nominated by GaWC as a global city, with a ranking of Alpha-. In The 2008 Global Cities Index, Stockholm ranked 24th in the world, 10th in Europe, and first in Scandinavia. Stockholm is known for its beauty, its buildings and architecture, its abundant open water and many parks. It is sometimes referred to as Venice of the North. Stockholm is the second most visited city in the Nordic countries, with around one million visitors in 2006. ( source Wikipedia )

Australian Market Report of October 9: Upbeat US Job Data and Consumer Spending
 
03:47
Overnight the US stocks closed higher on the positive Alcoa earnings and better-than-expected weekly jobless claims and consumer spending. Investors were also encouraged by the US retailers' first same-store sales gains in more than a year. Yesterday the encouraging job data pushed the local market to its highest in a year. The benchmark S&P/ASX200 index was 1.6 per cent higher, or 72.9 points, to 4768.6 points; the broader All Ordinaries index gained 67.5 points, or 1.4 per cent, to 4763.3. Meanwhile, the Australian dollar hit a fresh 14 month high of 90.15 US cents in the minutes after the ABS data was published. Key Economic Facts and Figures The Australian Bureau of Statistics said the unemployment rate in September fell to 5.7 per cent from 5.8 per cent in previous month. The better-than-expected result, as a sign of economy recovery, could give the Australian central bank stronger confidence to further raise its official interest rate in November. Treasury Secretary Ken Henry has warned there could be a further reduction of 100,000 jobs and a further detraction of 1.5 per cent from GDP if the Federal Government's stimulus scheduled to impact in 2010/11 was cancelled. Government's next forecast will likely include stronger forecasts for gross domestic product growth and a peak unemployment rate lower than the 8.5 per cent forecast in the time of the budget. M&A News Australian iron ore explorer United Minerals Corp (ASX:UMC) is expected to announce that it has received a takeover offer from BHP Billiton (ASX:BHP), which is tipped as a potential suitor. The expected offer comes after the A$27.7 million deal with China Railways Materials Commercial Corp to acquire 11.4 per cent stake in United Minerals. United Minerals on Friday requested a suspension in trade of its shares pending an announcement on a potential change of control transaction. Polaris Metals NL (ASX:POL) said in a statement on Friday neither of the takeover offers proposed by Lion-Asia Resources and Mineral Resources (ASX:MIN) is "clearly superior". Polaris shares are currently trading on ASX at or slightly above the A$0.60 per share offered by Lion-Asia. Babcock & Brown Infrastructure (ASX:BBI) yesterday launched a A$1.8 billion recapitalisation plan aimed at addressing the company's A$1.2 billion of debt. Canada based asset management specialist Brookfield will emerge with a cornerstone shareholding up to 40 per cent. Brookfield will take 100 per cent of PD Ports in the UK, and BBI will also spin off Australian Energy Transmission and Distribution and Cross Sound Cable. Consumer goods company GUD Holdings Limited (ASX:GUD) said it intends to make an off-market takeover offer for all the shares it does not already own in Breville Group (ASX:BRG). GUD is offering all Breville shareholders one GUD share for every 4 Breville shares. The offer values Breville at A$322 million. Important Corporate News The big four banks have raised their standard variable mortgage rates by the same amount as the Reserve Bank's 25 basis points increase on Tuesday. The ANZ (ASX:ANZ) and Westpac (ASX:WBC) will increase the rate to 6.06 per cent while NAB (ASX:NAB) and Commonwealth Bank's (ASX:CBA) rate will rise to 5.99 per cent. Elders Limited (ASX:ELD) said it will not participate in the Forest Enterprises Australia (ASX:FEA) capital raising. Elders holds a 31.1 per cent equity interest in FEA through its wholly owned subsidiary. As a result, Elders' FEA interest will be diluted from 31.1 per cent to approximately 13.5 per cent

This is one of the greatest revenue centers on the globe. Globalization and privatization of numerous industries led to a lot of foreign investment for India real estate property. AS of now, NRIs began to invest in real estate back home. There are NRIs in almost every country in the world, with USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia some European countries, and the Gulf countries having the largest number of Indians. This is a big gain for our country. The US single-handedly has over 3 million Indians, most of who are doctors, scientists, engineers, and other professionals who can pump into the Indian economy. This is how we can hold on the process in a systematic way to generate the revenue from Investment in Indian commercial and residential property

THE WHY Of Obama's Massive Debt-Spending .::. FOREIGN TROOPS ON U.S. SOIL (because they'll own it)!!
 
08:57
WAKE UP AMERICA! Why is Congress spending MULTIPLE TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS we don't have for things we don't need or want? Because marxist communists have infiltrated all levels of government in Washington DC and they are COLLAPSING THE U.S. ECONOMY from within!! Only Fox News (branded as "the enemy of the state" by Obama's White House henchmen) REPORT the news that all the Liberal co-conspirator, propaganda media refuse to air! Glenn Beck boldly shows up these TRAITORS and their TREASON PLANS against America: GLENN BECK: "Our GDP [Gross Domestic Product] now, what we make as a country, is 15 trillion dollars. Our actual debt, as you've seen many times on this show, show it here, is 105 trillion. This [11 trillion on the chart] is our national debt. But our actual debt is 105 trillion. Seven times our GDP. ... Did you just see the number that I just showed you? It said 11 trillion? That's the games we play. Our government is playing accounting games right now. Do you realize we have 4 separate accounting books? Yeah, you try that with the IRS." ... GLENN BECK: "There's no way to pay that off. So, conjecture on my part, how about we just print enough money to pay off the debt over time? Sure, I mean it'll be worthless, but we'll be able to honor our agreement. We'll be able to give the Chinese their money back and the rest of our debtors. The people that we'd owed get their money. And if we sold some stuff to them, well, they could come and take those assets. But then what's left? Because, see, there has got to be somebody who's thought this through. How do you restart the country? You've got to have something left. You've got to have something to back the currency." ... GLENN BECK: "Well, if you have to have money, you've got to base it on something. So, let's go back in history and look at the people and what they taught us last century. When there's out of control money supply problems, who do you turn to? Well, the people who did it last time [were] the Weimar Republic in Germany. What did they do? How did they get their economy back on their feet? Well, after their currency had become so worthless, that hey had printed 2 trillion Mark bank notes, their economy collapsed. They dumped the Mark. They got rid of it. They just printed it up, paid off their debts, and then they switched to the Rentenmark. Now, what did they back it up with? Not enough gold. Look here, answer is right here. The answer is right here. They can back it with real estate. Land. That's what they did in Germany. and there is certainly enough land and resources in America that we can back our [new] currency with." ... GLENN BECK: "Gosh, if you took all of that, I'd bet you can base a new currency off of that. Oh, and I bet China could come and help, because you'd probably wouldn't be happy with a system like that, taking over all the land, because that's one of our real rights that we had in our Constitution." ... GLENN BECK: "They say 'let the government fix it'; 'let the world fix it'. There's a better idea, let the world fix it. They're already saying these things now! And when you watch Friday's show on 'global warming', you will see how they are laying the groundwork for this. Don't fool yourself. Read American history. Read any history. Both the American revolution and the Civil War, we needed allies. We needed people who would fight and supply money. Our government is [today] making those allies. Russia. China. Venezuela. But don't you think China would be willing to come over here and protect this [new] government? Help this government out from it's own radical people who just won't sit down, recognize the new reality? Under these circumstances for [a] piece of our coal, oil, mineral reserves, land? To be a part of one big happy global family? You bet they will." EDUCATE YOURSELF ON WHO'S DOING THIS and prepare yourself ... to water the Tree Of Liberty.

Somali Pirate Attacks Point To Need For Somalia Aid
 
02:28
#Zennie62 http://zennie2005.blogspot.com -- http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/abraham/index?blogid=95 -- Today, Easter Sunday, an after an affair that lasted for several days, American sea Captain Richard Phillips was rescued after NAVY Seal Snipers took three precision shots and killed three pirates from Somalia. In what can be described as a "growth industry" pirating in Somalia is a function of the country's lack of a government, weak economy, little military funding, and lack of financial aid from the World. In order to stop these attacks, the people of Somalia themselves must be helped. Conservative blogs and websites like "HotAir" have unintelligently called for us to "bomb" the pirates, but such saber-rattling will only kill innocent women and children. In other words, "American Machismo" worked to rescue the captain, but it will not work for the resolution of this problem. What will work is increasing aide to Somalia and helping them establish a central government but from a distance, not via invasion. Somalia has been without a true central government since 1991, and that country's civil war. (And the United States doesn't need another incursion into that country, or for that matter another situation where American solidiers are killed, which were the events captured in a movie called Black Hawk Down.) We can't afford to take on the task now. But we can work with the United Nations and other countries impacted by piracy to improve the Somali economy. Somalia is poor. According to the CIA, its' Gross Domestic Product is just over $2 billion, and the average life expectancy is just 47 years old. That's right: 47 years old. So when the average Somalian hears that a pirate's making as much as a share of $22 million for a heist, that's attractive. Indeed, the BBC reports that Somalian pirates are "living the high life" becoming very wealthy even by American standards in a country that's very poor by the World's standards. So much so is the economy a problem and piracy attractive that recruiting participants has become easier over the years. The monetary spigot has to be s... - vlog produced by Zennie Abraham Zennie62 Blog http://www.zennie62blog.com - youtube video A Zennie Abraham YouTube Vlog Zennie62, Oakland's 1st YouTube Partner Channel, covers San Diego Comic Con, NFL Draft, Oakland Raiders, CES Las Vegas, The Academy Awards - CBS SF Bay Area Follow @Zennie62 on Twitter https://twitter.com/zennie62 オークランドの襲撃者 - (Zennie62 YouTube vlog) http://oaklandnewsnow.com/ Maria Ayerdi Kaplan - http://oaklandnewsnow.com/index.php/2018/08/26/maria-ayerdi-kaplan-developer-of-salesforce-transit-center-part-one-of-her-story/ Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-dZt3rPjnk
Obama in 03 (Uncut): Id Like to See a Single Payer Health Care Plan
 
00:54
I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And thats what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And thats what Id like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.

MaximsNewsNetwork: UN DRUG TRAFFICKING & CRIME IN AFRICA: UNTV - UNODC
 
03:00
MaximsNewsNetwork: 08 December 2009 - UNTV - United Nations: Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says drug traffickers undermine the rule of law and in some countries the huge profits generated through drug trafficking can rival their Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The Security Council today called for greater international cooperation in fighting drug trafficking, with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon terming it a leading threat to global peace and security. So far, cooperation between governments is lagging behind cooperation between organized crime networks, he told the 15-member body at the start of a day-long debate. He said that drug trafficking is fuelling brutal insurgencies in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Myanmar, spreading violence in West Africa, Central Asia, Central America and the Caribbean and threatening to reverse UN peacebuilding efforts in Afghanistan, Haiti, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Sierra Leone and elsewhere. Drug trafficking is evolving into an ever graver threat that is affecting all regions of the world, Ban warned, calling for sustained political will and significant resources to counter the trade, which in some countries generates huge profits that can rival their Gross Domestic Product ( GDP ). Ban said that the, trans-national nature of the threat meant that no country could face this problem alone and that the fight required a comprehensive international approach based on a strong sense of shared responsibility. The United Nations Drugs and Crime (UNODC) chief Antonio Maria Costa underscored the, new worrying development in West and East Africa and across the Sahara . He said the recent discovery of seven laboratories in Guinea showed that West Africa was also becoming a producer of synthetic drugs and crystal cocaine refined from pasta basica or base paste. Costa said cocaine was pouring into the west and tons of Afghan heroin was trafficked annually into the east, and that this was causing a dramatic increase in drug addiction, mainly heroin injections. This was spreading HIV, he said, and urged donors to help with badly needed drug facilities. And because of the dramatic situation in Somalia , the region was becoming a, free economic zone for all sorts of trafficking.

Former Mexican pres. talks immigration at UNM

former mexican president vicente fox has some new ideas about reducing the flow of illegal immigrants across the border - and he shared them today with an audience at unm. stuart dyson was there. he's here now with what fox had to say. stu? fox says he's not in favor of open borders - but he does believe that higher wages for mexican workers would minute thumbnail 05:05 pm keep more of them in mexico - who's gonna pay for it? - hang on to your wallet! fox was president of mexico for the firssix years of the century - now advocating a sort of european union deal for mexico - the u.s. - and canada - each nation chips in two percent of its gross national product to help out the poorest partner - that's mexico by a long shot. fox says it would help keep mexican workers and their families at home instead of risking everything to cross the border into the u.s. " they are only coming to look for a job - to look for better income - to make money - and better living for their family - it is not easy for them to take that decision." the former coca cola executive also says mexico is changing its tune when it comes to the role of women in society. " in latin america we lost a lot during the 20th century by relegating women back to the kitchen - this is then the century of minute thumbnail 05:06 pm women." fox's talk was part of unm's lobo reading experience program. " he was really a realist - one thing i got from vicente fox - in layman's terms he just cut to the chase - he didn't sugarcoat it - he was like a ross perot." not everybody was happy with the vicente fox show at unm - coming up at six - who's upset and why - back to you.

Obama Does it With A Flair - from iOwnTheWorld.com
 
00:39
From an idea by Personal Litmus and Mr. Pinko comes " Do It With A Flair," from Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Ty to the creator of the original Joker animation. On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787 billion economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession.[139] The act includes increased federal spending for health care, infrastructure, education, various tax breaks and incentives, and direct assistance to individuals,[140] which is being distributed over the course of several years. President Barack Obama signs the ARRA into law on February 17, 2009 in Denver, Colorado. Vice President Joe Biden stands behind him. In March, Obama's Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, took further steps to manage the financial crisis, including introducing the Public-Private Investment Program for Legacy Assets, which contains provisions for buying up to $2 trillion in depreciated real estate assets.[141] Obama intervened in the troubled automotive industry[142] in March 2009, renewing loans for General Motors and Chrysler to continue operations while reorganizing. Over the following months the White House set terms for both firms' bankruptcies, including the sale of Chrysler to Italian automaker Fiat[143] and a reorganization of GM giving the U.S. government a temporary 60% equity stake in the company, with the Canadian government shouldering a 12% stake.[144] In June 2009, dissatisfied with the pace of economic stimulus, Obama called on his cabinet to accelerate the investment.[145] He signed into law the Car Allowance Rebate System, known colloquially as "Cash for Clunkers", that had mixed results.[146][147][148] Although spending and loan guarantees from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department authorized by the Bush and Obama administrations totaled about $11.5 trillion, only $3 trillion had actually been spent by the end of November 2009.[149] However, Obama and the Congressional Budget Office predict that the 2010 budget deficit will be $1.5 trillion or 10.6% of the nation's gross domestic product (GDP) compared to the 2009 deficit of $1.4 trillion or 9.9% of GDP.[150][151] For 2011, the administration predicted the deficit will slightly shrink to $1.34, while the 10-year deficit will increase to $8.53 trillion or 80% of GDP.[152] Unemployment numbers rose briefly to as high as 10.1% in October 2009 (the highest since 1983)[153] before decreasing to 9.5% in June 2010.[154] In the first quarter of 2010, the U.S. economy expanded at a 2.7% pace[155] after growing at its fastest rate in six years in the fourth quarter, 5.7%.[156] In July 2010, the Federal Reserve expressed that although economic activity continued to increase, its pace had slowed and its Chairman, Ben Bernanke, stated that the economic outlook was "unusually uncertain."[157] The Congressional Budget Office and a broad range of economists credit Obama's stimulus plan for economic growth.[158][159] The CBO released a report stating that the stimulus bill increased employment by 1--2.1 million,[159][160][161][162] while conceding that "It is impossible to determine how many of the reported jobs would have existed in the absence of the stimulus package."[163] Although an April 2010 survey of members of the National Association for Business Economics showed an increase in job creation (over a similar January survey) for the first time in two years, 73% of the 68 respondents believed that the stimulus bill has had no impact on employment.[164] Within a month of the 2010 midterm elections, Obama announced a compromise deal with the Congressional Republican leadership that included a temporary, two-year extension of the 2001 and 2003 income tax rates, a one-year payroll tax reduction, continuation of unemployment benefits, and a new rate and exemption amount for estate taxes.[165] The compromise overcome opposition from some in both parties, and the resulting $858 billion Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 passed with bipartisan majorities in both houses of Congress before Obama signed it on December 17, 2010

Electronic Countries - Michael Cassette present Finland
 
11:00
Hi,my friends. The next country is Finland. Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a Nordic country situated in the Fennoscandian region of northern Europe. It borders Sweden on the west, Russia on the east, and Norway on the north, while Estonia lies to its south across the Gulf of Finland. The capital city is Helsinki. Around 5.3 million people reside in Finland, with the majority concentrated in the southern part of the country. It is the eighth largest country in Europe in terms of area and the most sparsely populated country in the European Union. The native language for most of the population is Finnish, a member of the Finno-Ugric language family most closely related to Estonian, and is one of only four official EU languages not of Indo-European origin. The other official language of Finland, Swedish, is the mother tongue of 5.5 percent of the population. Finland is a democratic, parliamentary republic with a mostly Helsinki-based central government and local governments in 348 municipalities. A total of a million residents live in Greater Helsinki area (including Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa) and a third of the country's GDP is produced there. Other major cities include Tampere, Turku, Oulu, Jyväskylä, Kuopio and Lahti. Finland was historically a part of Sweden and from 1809 an autonomous Grand Duchy within the Russian Empire. Finland's declaration of independence from Russia in 1917 was followed by a civil war, wars against the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and a period of official neutrality during the Cold War. Finland joined the United Nations in 1955, the OECD in 1969, and the European Union in 1995 and participates in the Eurozone. Finland has been ranked the second most stable country in the world, in a survey based on social, economic, political, and military indicators. Finland has good results in many international comparisons of national performance such as the share of high-technology manufacturing, public education, health care, the rate of gross domestic product growth, and the protection of civil liberties.

OBAMA STIMULUS - THE END OF NEANDERTHAL ECONOMICS?
 
09:25
I hate to say this: the Beginning of the New Year seemed like a continuation in part of the 2008 disaster news. Businesses consider bankruptcy, states are out of money and cut back on law enforcement and education, car makers cant sell their products. In short: the lay-offs have it. --- While the picture gets dimmer and dimmer, the Neanderthal Economists in Area 51, Washington, announce that they will do anything to delay the passing of a stimulus package. Indeed, instead of concentrating on securing immediate stimulation, a core fundamental in Recession Economics 101, they rather concentrate on not seating a Senator who has been appointed by a Governor who has not been impeached, who has not been indicted, and where the prosecutor does not even have a case to obtain an indictment but hopes he will so in 3 months - maybe. Their argument: the Secretary of State has the power to rescind the action of a properly sitting Governor. Harry Reid initially went along with that argument. --- Harry, I found a piece of ancient Chinese advice: If you put a match between your legs your chestnuts will be roasted. --- Same with Obama. Obviously puzzled by Patrick Fitzgerald, the quick mouth prosecutor, Obama said in a press conference: Obama-son sorry that was Japanese here is another piece of ancient Chinese wisdom: If you tempt a squirrel with a nut, be prepared to be bitten. I dont make this up. It is from fortune cookies. Sure enough, Blago Goldfinger appointed Ronald Burris as the Senator from Illinois. Which got everybody upset. --- Let me say this again: The fact remains that Blago Goldfinger has neither been impeached nor even indicted. --- Back to the Neanderthal Economists objection to Obamas stimulus. Their argument: You, the tax payer, will have to pay for the stimulus. Not quite entirely. What these enemies of the public do not tell you is what you will have to pay if no stimulus passes. And that may include homelessness. If you think I am kidding, you do so at your own risk. --- Not only are states laying off public employees, cutting back on law enforcement as well as on teachers, they have no money for welfare. --- I agree with Paul Krugman, the 2008 Nobel price winner for economics: In a recession government action has to be taken swiftly and to the extent needed. I also agree with Krugman that Obamas plan may not be bold enough. --- Allow me to call the Myth Busters in to explain again and maybe in more detail why we need to take swift action, what the macro-economic relationships are, and why as much as you may hate them taxes are needed, not only to pay for essential services like security, education and health, but to pay for measures that are needed to prevent a true economic disaster. The gross domestic product is the measure currently in use to judge the economic health of a nation. --- Next, you remember the donut which is the essence of macro-economy as much as this may make the cave age economists cringe. The donut describes not only the relationship between the players - but nicely depicts the monetary flow. As well as in a recession, depression, and on a global level. Not to forget the Government which is a major contributor to the economic health. Lets forget for a moment the Governments contribution to the economy via its employees and come right to the point of economic stimulus here one given to corporations. Macro-Economists say that this will increase employment which in turn will increase purchase power which in turn will increase buying and added tax revenues. Except that if it comes to increase the purchase power of consumers - there is a delay caused by the corporate go-between. --- Unless there are compelling reasons, for example to save car makers, much more efficient would be to apply the stimulus directly to the consumer. Of course, that is only true if the consumer actually spends the money he gets and does not use it to pay off debt. Lets look for a moment at the Governments contribution to the economy typically overlooked by the Neanderthalers. Indeed, if you look closer you will see that the government does not put the money in its savings account that would be the day but actually spends it by paying it to public servants, like firemen, police etc. --- So the next time some cave age economists the Hoover crowd comes and gives you stories, give them the bleeper. One more point though. Any stimulus plan would have a greater chance of success if it is combined with a bold plan to encourage innovation. That of course would require that we get our credit house in order and make credit available to venture capitalists. It would also require that we change the patent laws to exclude patents that are being used to restrain the trade. Such inventions do NOT contribute to the economy to the contrary.

Electronic Cities - Eric Prydz & Pryda present Stockholm (Sweden)
 
10:57
Hi,my friends The next city is Stockholm, Sweden Stockholm is the capital and largest city of Sweden. It is the site of the national Swedish government, the parliament, and the official residence of the Swedish monarch. As of 2008, the Stockholm metropolitan area is home to around 21% of Sweden's population and contributes 35% of Sweden's gross domestic product. Stockholm is the most populous city in Sweden with a population of 810,120 in the city, 1.3 million in the urban area and around 2 million in the metropolitan area. Stockholm has been the cultural, media, political, and economic centre of Sweden since the 13th century. Its strategic location on fourteen islands on the south-central east coast of Sweden at the mouth of Lake Mälaren, by the Stockholm archipelago, has been historically important. Since the city is built on islands and known for its beauty, tourist interests have tried to popularize the appellation "Venice of the North". The city is known for its beauty, its buildings, its water and parks. According to Euromonitor, Stockholm is the second most visited city of the Nordic Countries in terms of international visitors, with around 1 million international tourists every year. More info of Stockholm in: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm From this city, come Eric Prydz Eric Prydz is on a roll at the moment, without doubt leading the way.

Eric is now in charge of three highly respected labels whose releases are in feverish demand, consistently selling huge quantities of vinyl which is truly incredible in the markets current climate. The labels are arguably proving to be the most successful and forward thinking imprints currently existing. Each label was strictly developed to give Eric a platform to release his own productions without outside interference, simply his music on his terms. It was important for Eric to step back after his previous successes and release music without schedules and pressure. Ultimately he wanted to control his own image and destiny, something extremely important to him and his career. The ethos behind the labels was truly underground, scarcely any promotion, no press intrusion and true label design/identity... a formula which has proven massively successful. Releases on his more hard edge Mouseville records under the pseudonym Cirez D have been tough and powerful a throwback to the underground techno roots his native Sweden have become famous for. The huge demand for this label have become nothing short of amazing with his massive 'Knockout EP' selling over 18,000 copies on vinyl alone. The more melodic based Pryda imprint showcases his early house influences with harmonies, melodies and hooks fused with his trademark powerful basslines. Pryda and Mouseville are solely for Eric's own productions. vehicles to develop his sound, a sound that has become so influential, constantly imitated and copied but yet to be bettered...

Hi,my friends. ;D The next country is ISRAEL. Israel, officially the State of Israel, is a country in the Middle East located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan in the east, and Egypt on the southwest, and contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Also adjacent are the West Bank to the east and Gaza Strip to the southwest. Israel is the world's only predominantly Jewish state with a population of about 7.37 million people, of which approximately 5.57 million belong to the majority Jewish ethnoreligious group. The largest ethnic minority group is the segment denominated as Arab citizens of Israel, while minority religious groups include Muslims, Christians, Druze, Samaritans and others, most of which are found within the Arab segment. Israel is a representative democracy with a parliamentary system and universal suffrage. The Prime Minister serves as head of government and the Knesset serves as Israel's legislative body. In terms of nominal gross domestic product, the nation's economy is estimated as being the 44th-largest in the world. Israel ranks highest among Middle Eastern countries on the bases of human development, freedom of the press, and economic competitiveness. Jerusalem is the country's capital, seat of government, and largest city, while Israel's main financial center is Tel Aviv.

At the tender age of just 17 and after already releasing a track under the Pillow One alias on the Future Heroes 2 compilation via Lost Language, he now joines forces with Anjunabeats hot new label, Anjunadeep. Producing since the age of 11 and inspired by the Tiesto Magik series, he took his unique style of trance on the internet. Garnering many reactions and taking onboard all the resources he could find, with the help of fruityloops he honed his skills to the point where labels started taking him seriously. Even though he's still relatively new, his name has already become well known in the trance community with his distinctive sound. The first release Lital in January 2006 helps opens up the Anjunadeep world with a rich atmospheric dark stutter-vocal fuelled trancer thats being supported by the likes of Markus Schulz and Armin Van Buuren.
