Start the Conversation! An introduction to the Canadian Index of Wellbeing
 
04:15
Canada is at the threshold of a defining moment, a defining moment of change, a moment of innovation, and of clarity. This is the Canadian Index of Wellbeing, a new way of focusing on how we're doing in Canada: not just how much our economy is growing, but how well we live. But let's start at the beginning. There are times in history when destabilizing world events turn into defining moments for change and innovation. In the twentieth century, two global events destabilized entire nations: the Great Depression and World War II. Then, gross domestic product, or GDP, became the standard way to assess economic prosperity. GDP is a composite index based on a complicated formula that tells us whether an economy is growing or shrinking. Worldwide, GDP has become the most popular way to measure the economic status of a nation; but GDP has its limits. It reveals the dollars and cents of a nation but it can't tell us if economic growth is translating into a better quality of life. Now we have a true partner to the GDP: the Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW). It isn't just a number; it reflects real life. It tells us how we're really doing, where we're making progress, and where we're falling behind. Some of Canada's leading thinkers answered the call to create a new way of measuring our quality of life, in all its dimensions. After extensive public consultation, the CIW chose 64 indicators rooted in Canadian values. These indicators make up the core of the CIW's 8 main categories, what we call domains. Starting with our base year of 1994, the CIW offers a composite index that's more comprehensive and realistic than GDP alone. It's something that can guide us on questions that run deeper than economic growth. The CIW tells us whether our health is getting better, or worse; whether housing is becoming more affordable or out of reach; whether we have enough time for leisure, culture, and quality family time. It helps spot troubling trends that policy makers can address. Things like the growing gap between rich and poor, a drop in the number of years lived in good health, or soaring greenhouse gases that jeopardize our health and economy. It also tells us where we're improving; for example, fewer teenagers smoking and more connected communities. Add up all of the 64 indicators in 8 domains and what you get is a reflection of how Canadians are really doing in life. Until now we've never had a way of measuring whether economic growth equals a better quality of life. Clearly, a healthy economy is important but can we really call it progress if it comes at the expense of our personal time, a more stressful life, and a planet left in peril for our children and grandchildren? The CIW shows us that as a nation we have choices. We can have a thriving economy, and raise the quality of life for all Canadians. By twinning GDP with the CIW, Canadians can see how close we're coming to creating the kind of country we want for ourselves and future generations. And governments of all levels can use the information to guide them towards smarter, more time sensitive decision making. It's why the CIW is more than just a number; it's a reflection of how we live, regardless of whether GDP is growing or shrinking. It's a made-in-Canada innovation and we're proud to launch it into the world during such a defining moment. What choices would you make? We challenge each of you to start the conversation!

Bell Canada - Why we should stop junkmails?   www.BelljunkMailPollution.com
 
01:16
http://BelljunkMailPollution.com The Environmental Effects of Junk Mail Studies of junk mail (excluding catalogues and phonebooks) have shown that the average household receives a meager 1.5 personal letters per week compared to approximately 16 pieces of junk mail. If you add-up the weight of the junk mail, using a conservative estimated average weight of 2oz per letter, each household receives an incredible 41 pounds of junk mail per year! The 2001 Canadian Census reported there to be 11.5 million households, which works out to just under one BILLION pounds of junk mail per year in Canada alone. Put another way, that's approximately 18 times the weight of the Titanic! Assuming an average mailing cost of 10 cents per letter, it works out to about $250 million per year for these useless mailings, 40% of which go directly to landfill unread and only 2% of which are responded to. The sad fact about junk mail is that the nuisance of receiving it is not its worst attribute. The negative environmental impact of junk mail is mind-boggling: the destruction of forests to make pulp, the toxic chemicals used in printing, the huge burden on landfill space, and the high cost of disposal are just some of the issues. As one can see, junk mail is not just an annoyance; it's a serious environmental concern. The negative effects of logging to create the paper used for junk mail are widespread. Deforestation destroys the balance of forest ecosystems, which can result in soil erosion, habitat destruction, damage to water tables, and other serious environmental impacts. Loss of forests creates atmospheric instability, by removing trees that would otherwise eliminate carbon dioxide (the primary greenhouse gas) from the atmosphere. Deforestation can damage water tables, drying otherwise fertile soil, which then becomes highly prone to erosion and further soil damage. Erosion due to deforestation can affect waterways by increasing the risk of drought or flooding. Soil damage is not just limited to erosion. Messing with ground water can result in leeching of important nutrients from the topsoil into the water table. Changes in forest cover, water supply, and soil content have a direct impact on forest ecosystems. Deforestation, especially in tropical rainforests, results in the extinction of tens of thousands of animal and insect species every year. Production of pulp to create junk mail creates almost 2 billion tons of carbon emissions annually: equal to the pollution of roughly 9 million cars. Unfortunately, producing the junk mail is not the end of the environmental damage. Once mailed and subsequently tossed in the trash, our junk mail still needs to be disposed of. Given that almost 40% of a typical landfill mass is paper and cardboard, junk mail contributes hugely to already serious garbage problems. Junk mail generates approximately 1 million tons of trash each year, much of which cannot be recycled. Many of the inks used to print junk mail are loaded with toxic heavy metals, which can eventually leech from landfills into ground water. And if that isn't enough, picture all of the junk mail distributed in Canada in one year placed end to end. It would wrap AROUND THE WORLD MORE THAN 10 TIMES! The final major concern with junk mail is its cost. With annual mailing costs of around a quarter of a billion dollars, and disposal costs in the same ballpark, it means that in Canada alone a half a billion dollars per year is spent on junk mail. That's a lot of money to spend on something that almost nobody even wants. To put that in perspective, it's worth more than the Gross Domestic Product of Prince Edward Island! So if the environmental impact of junk mail doesn't convince you to get yourself removed from mass mailing lists, consider how else that money could be used. A half a billion dollars would go a long way to improve healthcare, fund research, support public works, create jobs, maintain schools, hire teachers, or benefit so many other worthwhile uses. Dear reader, air pollution is a major global issue. Clean air is so important to those with asthma, respiratory problems in general and numerous other health problems. It's vital for adults and children alike, in Canada, the US, Europe, in fact for people in all countries around the globe. Our ultimate goal in reducing junk mail is to have clean air, clean water and generally reduce environmental damage. Your support is needed to reduce the volume of junk mail and thereby improve our environment. You can support this worthy cause by simply e-mailing this article www.belljunkmailpollution.com to your family, friends, coworkers, TV stations, newspapers, magazines, schools, community organizations and companies such as Bell Canada, both locally and around the globe. The result will be cleaner air and a healthier environment for us all.

If an average mailing costs 10 cents per letter, it sums up to about $250 million per year for these useless mailings, 40% of which go directly to the garbage bin unread and only 2% of which are responded to. The worse thing about junk mail is not just the fact that we receive it. Its negative environmental impact is astounding: forests are destroyed to make pulp, toxic chemicals are used to print them, landfills are clogged, and to dispose of them is pricey, among other issues. As one can visibly understand, junk mail is not just a nuisance to us; it's to the environment as well. The negative effects of logging to build the paper used for junk mail are everywhere. Deforestation destroys the equilibrium of forest ecosystems, which can erode the soil, destroy habitats, damage water tables, and impact on the environment in many other ways. Disappearance of forests renders the atmosphere unstable by taking away trees that would otherwise eliminate carbon dioxide (the primary greenhouse gas) from the air. The damage to the water tables that can be caused by deforestation dries drying otherwise fertile soil, which then becomes highly prone to erosion and further soil damage.

Each year, deforestation, especially in tropical rainforests, results in the extinction of tens of thousands of animal and insect species. Also each year, production of pulp to create junk mail creates almost 2 billion tons of carbon emissions: equal to the pollution of about 9 million automobiles. Unfortunately, the damages does not end with those created by the production of junk mail. Once mailed and later tossed in the garbage, it still needs to be disposed of. Since almost 40% of a typical landfill is contained of paper and cardboard, junk mail becomes a huge part of an already serious waste problem. Junk mail produces approximately 1 million tons of trash each year, most of it cannot be recycled. Many of the inks used to for printing are loaded with toxic heavy metals, which can eventually leak from landfills into ground water. And if that isn't enough, imagine all of the junk mail distributed in Canada in a given year placed end to end. It would circle THE PLANET MORE THAN 10 TIMES! Last but not least, the primary concern with junk mail is the cost. With annual mailing fees of around a quarter of a billion dollars, and disposal costs of the same amount, it means that only in Canada a half a billion dollars per year is spent on junk mail. That's a huge amount of money to waste on something that almost nobody even wants. As a comparison, it's worth more than the Gross Domestic Product of Prince Edward Island! So if the environmental impact of junk mail doesn't convince you to ask your name to be deleted from mass mailing lists, think of other ways that money could be used.

Here's How You Can Educate Yourself In The Toronto, Canada, Real Estate Market February 2011.
 
06:08
Click Here: http://www.torontopowerofsalehomes.ca. Toronto, Canada, Real Estate Market. February 2011. At its January 2011 meeting, the Bank of Canada announced that it is maintaining its target for the overnight rate at one per cent, citing "elevated risks" to an economy that is growing slightly faster than predicted last October. The Bank gave no indication of when rate hikes might resume, instead noting that "any further reduction in monetary policy stimulus [i.e. interest rate hikes] would need to be carefully considered." Canada's Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) increased 0.3 percent in the third quarter for an annualized growth rate of 1.0 per cent. On a monthly basis, GDP declined in September -- the second decline in three months. Manufacturing and retail sales were among the positive contributors to the third quarter figure, while exports and housing investment (both down 1.3 per cent) proved to be the largest drags on growth. In December, the Canadian economy added 22,000 jobs, with a 38,000 position gain in full-time positions offsetting losses in part-time jobs. The unemployment rate remained steady at 7.6 per cent. Manufacturing added 66,000 jobs, mostly in Quebec and Ontario, after little overall change in the preceding 18 months. In the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area (CMA), the number of people employed increased and the unemployment rate continued to trend lower. Canada's Consumer Price Index (CPI), the key measure of price growth for consumer goods and services, jumped 2.4 per cent in October following a 1.9 per cent increase in September. Once again, the rise in prices was driven largely by energy costs, which advanced 9.1 per cent compared to October of last year. With energy prices and other volatile products stripped out, the Bank of Canada's Core CPI rose by 1.8 per cent. In December, Canadian housing starts fell 13 per cent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 171,500 units from an upwardly revised November figure of 198,200 units. The drop was driven by a decline in the volatile multiple-family component, especially within Ontario, where the overall decline was 45 per cent. In Toronto, the annual rate of starts fell by 65 per cent to 17,800. In November, Canadian retail sales jumped 1.3 per cent in both dollar and volume terms for the largest increase since March of 2010. While sales rose in 8 sub-sectors, the strongest increases came at motor vehicle and parts dealers, where the dollar value of sales increased by 2.7 per cent. Also notable was a 1.4 per cent increase in the dollar value of sales at gasoline stations, reflecting higher costs at the pump.

Canada welcomes China Southern Airlines inaugural flight
 
01:12
The Honourable Maxime Bernier, Minister of State (Small Business and Tourism), British Columbia Premier Christy Clark, and Vancouver Airport Authority president and CEO Larry Berg welcomed the inaugural China Southern Airlines flight between Guangzhou, China, and Vancouver. The China Southern Airlines service will run three times weekly between Vancouver and Guangzhou, the capital of China's most populous province, Guangdong. This is Canada's first and only non-stop flight to Guangzhou. This new service further strengthens Canada's Asia-Pacific Gateway and will afford Canadians living in British Columbia and nationally more choices for international travel to China. The service, along with Canada's Approved Destination Status from China, will contribute to the national economy and create more opportunities for the Chinese to visit Canada. "Our government received a strong mandate to strengthen our economy and create jobs. This new service will provide economic growth and more convenience to travellers and companies alike, from our two countries," Minister Bernier said. "Having Approved Destination Status allows us to share our unique business and travel experiences with China." "This announcement will benefit Canadians by providing greater choice for travel between both countries and has the potential to have significant economic impact for tourism in Canada, given the size of the Guangzhou market," added Minister Bernier. China Southern Airlines is the largest airline in Asia, and Guangzhou Airport, located in Guangdong province on the Pearl River Delta, serves more than 330 million people. Guangdong province's foreign trade accounts for more than a quarter of China's total, and it enjoys the country's highest provincial per capita gross domestic product. The new service is not only a new airline for Vancouver International Airport, but will also benefit tourism in Canada. "The addition of China Southern's new service is another sign of the importance of travel, tourism, trade and cultural connections between B.C. and Asia," said Premier Christy Clark. "British Columbia is Canada's Pacific Gateway and now global companies such as China Southern are connecting to the world through B.C. The new air service means more jobs for B.C. families not only at YVR but also through our province as new business opportunities are created." China Southern Airlines' service three times a week is estimated to generate significant employment, producing $2.2 million in wages and contributing $3.5 million to British Columbia's gross domestic product annually. With more than 23,600 people working on Sea Island, Vancouver International Airport is one of British Columbia's key economic and employment generators. As the closest major North American airport to Asia, it has more frequencies to China than any other airport on the continent. "I commend China Southern on its choice to expand its international network to Canada, and to capitalize on the trade and travel opportunities available here in B.C.," said Mr. Berg. "Offering expanded air service to China is a key objective for the Airport Authority as we continue to develop YVR as a premier global gateway to Asia." This announcement reflects the priorities of the partners in Canada's Pacific Gateway that are aimed at making it the best transportation network between North America and Asia. To date, the Government of Canada has partnered with all four western provinces, as well as with municipalities and the private sector, to announce strategic infrastructure projects worth over $3.5 billion, including federal contributions of over $1.4 billion.

Here's How You Can Educate Yourself In The Toronto, Canada, Real Estate Market March 2011.
 
06:08
Click Here: http://www.torontopowerofsalehomes.ca. Toronto, Canada, Real Estate Market. March 2011. At its January 2011 meeting, the Bank of Canada announced that it is maintaining its target for the overnight rate at one per cent, citing "elevated risks" to an economy that is growing slightly faster than predicted last October. The Bank gave no indication of when rate hikes might resume, instead noting that "any further reduction in monetary policy stimulus [i.e. interest rate hikes] would need to be carefully considered." Driven by higher exports and stronger consumer spending, Canada's Real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew 0.8 per cent in the fourth quarter (or 3.2 per cent annualized) from an upwardly revised 0.4 per cent gain in the previous three month period. All major industrial sectors increased their output in 4th quarter 2010 but for manufacturing, which saw a decline after five consecutive quarterly increases. For December, GDP rose 0.5 per cent. For 2010 as a whole, GDP rose by 3.1 per cent, following a 2.5 per cent decline in 2009. In January, another 69,000 jobs were created in Canada, representing the second consecutive monthly increase in employment. Most of new jobs were in the service sector, which experienced a 49,400 job increase. The manufacturing sector created 4,000 jobs following a large increase (66,000 jobs) in December. Ontario led the way with the addition of 36,000 total positions. Within the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area (CMA), the employment level rose by 12,000 (reported on the basis of a three-month moving average). The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 8.3 per cent. In January, the Canadian Consumer Price Index (CPI), which measures price growth (inflation) for consumer goods and services, increased by 2.3 per cent compared to January 2010 following a 2.4 per cent rise in December. A nine per cent increase in energy costs, and more particularly a 13 per cent rise in gasoline prices, was the key driver of price growth. The Bank of Canada's Core CPI, which strips out volatile items like gasoline and some food items, rose by a lesser 1.4 per cent. Canadian housing starts increased by almost one per cent in January to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 170,400 from the downwardly revised figure of 169,000 for December. The increase was due to a 20 per cent jump in rural starts. Urban starts, for both single detached and multiple-family starts, were down by two per cent. The GTA bucked the downward trend in urban starts, with the seasonally adjusted annual rate of starts up 37 per cent to 25,400. The dollar value of Canadian retail sales edged down 0.2 per cent after six consecutive monthly gains. The small decline was based on a 2.7 per cent decline in sales at new car dealerships. The value of sales in most other retail categories was up. The value of sales at gasoline stations experienced the largest increase, up 7.6 per cent on higher per liter prices. The value of retail sales in Ontario was unchanged in December. In November, Canadian retail sales jumped 1.3 per cent in both dollar and volume terms for the largest increase since March of 2010. While sales rose in 8 sub-sectors, the strongest increases came at motor vehicle and parts dealers, where the dollar value of sales increased by 2.7 per cent. Also notable was a 1.4 per cent increase in the dollar value of sales at gasoline stations, reflecting higher costs at the pump.

Debt Servicing - How to Calculate GDS and TDS Ratios
 
04:49
http://mortgagelocator.ca/ Hi everybody, it's Rowan Smith with The Mortgage Center. We're going to try something a little different this week, and we're going to cover something that's very commonly requested of me, which is details on debt servicing, what is it, and how to calculate it. So there's two main ratios that the lenders use when they're calculating debt servicing. The first is GDS for gross debt service, and the second is TDS for total debt service. Gross debt service or GDS, which is the first ratio we look at includes your principal, interest, taxes and heat, and what we're trying to do is a find a percentage of your gross income that this equals. So principal and interest is effectively your payment, so whatever your payment is plus taxes and heat. A good rule of thumb is that GDS should not exceed 35%. I mean, yes, there's exceptions to this, but that's a good base-line if you're trying to figure a rough equivalent of what you can afford. Total debt service on the other hand includes not only principal interest, taxes and heat, but also any other debt payments or obligations. Now not everything is included in there, and we'll get to that later, but all debt payments. A good rule of thumb is that TDS should not exceed 42%. So let's go through GDS, we'll actually look at how to calculate it. This is a scenario, the common scenario that you see. Someone has an e-mortgage payment that'll work out to $2,500 a month, and that couple makes $120, 000 a year, combined, both of their jobs, so $10,000 a month. Property taxes are $3, 600 per year, that works out to $300 per month, and heat is $100 at most lenders. There's a few that'll use $85, some of that will use less, that's conned over. It's not a big difference, $100 should be used for roundness. Strata fees on the townhouse they're buying are $330 per month. Now currently, banks only use 50% of the strata fees to count towards GDS and TDS, you have to remember that when you're working through it. If it is a strata property, meaning an apartment, townhouse, condo, something like that, and there are fees, then only 50% of those are used. So here's the calculation. You make $2,500 payment, plus $300 taxes, plus $100 heat and $165 strata fees equals $3,065. $3,065 divided by the $10,000 monthly income, as expressed as a percentage, is 30.65% gross debt service, or GDS, which is within my 35% guideline I gave you. So based on GDS, yes this would be approved. TDS is a little bit different, similar but different. Same scenario, same payments and all that. The only difference is that last line there, since the client has a $300 per month car payment, and those $8,000 in credit card debt. So here's the calculation, and I want to note here, for credit cards, most banks use 3% of the amount owing to determine what we're payment will be. So in this case, $8,000, 3%, $240 will count towards TDS per month. You notice I like to convert everything to monthly numbers, because that tends to be how most people run their budgets, so it's how I do that. $2,500 mortgage payment, plus $300 taxes, $100 heat, $165 strata fees, plus the $300 car payment and $240 equals $3,605 per month counted towards their $10,000 income. $3,605 divided by $10, 000 equals 36.05% TDS, total debt service. Again, it's within my range of 42% that I gave you. So the two ratios to keep in mind are GDS and TDS, 35, 42 respectively. There are exceptions, but for now those are important. A couple of notes on TDS. People often say to me, "Well wait, if I've got monthly bills, what about my cable bill and my cell phone bill?" No. Cable bills, cell phone bills, telephone or Internet bill are not included. Other things not included in monthly RSP contributions, but the loans are; car insurance, house insurance, repairs and maintenance to property and income taxes. Now you may say, "Well wait, a lot of those are really important expenses, things that I have to pay for" but that's why we only use 42% or 44% of the TDS calculations. The other 56% to 58% are for those other expenses that everybody else pays. Some things that must be included in TDS and that often people wish were not: child support payments, alimony or spousal support payments, any other loan, credit card, line of credit or monthly debt obligation, car lease payments. If you're making another year on account, then a year of payment may count towards TDS. Now it's a lot of numbers. If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call. I'm happy to run through your situation for free. Everybody's is different, and it takes some experience to know what numbers actually have to be included, what are not included. So again, for The Mortgage Center, I'm Rowan Smith.

How to Follow Proper Business Etiquette in India
 
01:58
Watch more Business Etiquette videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/432380-How-to-Follow-Proper-Business-Etiquette-in-India Learn a few Indian customs with these tips to avoid any unintentional rudeness. Step 1: Use titles Use the titles of your Indian counterparts, or address them as "Mr.," "Mrs.," or "Miss." Exchange business cards at the beginning of a meeting, which is standard Indian business etiquette. Tip The western habit of whistling to get someone's attention is considered impolite in India. Winking may also be interpreted as offensive, and even sexual. Step 2: Conduct with respect Conduct yourself with respect that reassures Indian businesspeople that your intentions are trustworthy and sincere. This includes reining in the western tendency to be aggressive, which, in India, can be taken for disrespect. Step 3: Give gifts attention Decline expensive gifts if you can. When you can't, accept the gift with both hands. Set aside a wrapped gift until the giver leaves, which is considered proper etiquette. Tip Avoid motioning to someone with a palm up or by wagging one finger, which is an insult. Standing with your hands on your hips is also considered an aggressive posture. Step 4: Be sensitive to culture Accept all food and drink during business meetings, even if you elect only to nibble at it. Step 5: Know what they eat Remember that Hindus don't eat beef, and Muslims don't eat pork. Many Indians are entirely vegetarian. Be sensitive to a predominant cultural and religious inclination toward vegetarianism and a general abstention from alcohol or cigarettes. Indians prefer business lunches to business dinners, by and large. Step 6: Go along to get along Go along with a general disregard for punctuality. Relax and be flexible with them and business will go swimmingly. Did You Know? The Indian Gross Domestic Product grew at 6.7 percent in 2008 to 2009, one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

Canada Real Estate Crisis www.Paulhatfield.ca
 
01:41
What happened to Canada's real estate crisis? Canadian home sales outlook upgraded despite continued uncertainties. There was no shortage of headline news in October about global financial market volatility and economic uncertainty. But it doesn't appear to have dampened homebuyers' spirits," notes Gary Morse, president of the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). "Interest rates are at low levels and are likely to stay that way for some time to come, [and] homebuyers clearly see opportunities." CREA itself was one of those experts fooled. Earlier this month the organization was forced to boost its forecast for home sales activity, via its Multiple Listing Service, for both this year and next. CREA now expects that 453,300 homes will be sold this year, up from its earlier prediction of 446,915 units. That would bring the increase in home sales up from 0.9 per cent to 1.4 per cent. Continued strength in residential real estate data The Canadian housing industry seems to be performing well all around. Home sales edged up again in October to their highest level since January. In addition, the average price of homes sold in October (actual, not seasonally adjusted) came in at $362,899, a 5.5 per cent increase since the same month last year. While this was the smallest increase this year, the momentum is in the right direction, far better than in the United States where the housing market has yet to show convincing signs of bottoming out. With continued strong resale activity and pricing, it should come as no surprise that homebuilders have also been active. According to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, housing starts came in at 207,600 units last month on a seasonally adjusted annualized basis. While that total is down slightly from the 208,800 units started in September, the number is unusually high. That's true compared to other western economies where construction has been seeing hard times relative to historical averages and with regard to traditional demographic trends, such as immigration and new household formation, which create annual demand for about 175,000 new units, far below current construction levels. Affordability remains strong As CREA's Morse noted, part of the reason for continued demand stems from housing affordability trends, which remain positive. Just how positive was confirmed by RBC Economics earlier this month when it released its quarterly "Housing Trends and Affordability Study," which concludes that uncertainty overseas might actually have had somewhat of a positive effect in Canada. "Developments related to the [European sovereign debt] crisis likely provided some benefits in the form of lower interest rates," concludes Craig Wright, the financial group's chief economist. "For instance, fixed mortgage rates [on a five-year, posted basis] eased to 5.3 per cent during the third quarter of 2011, from an average of 5.6 per cent in the second quarter." In addition, the Canadian economy continues to perform well relative to other western economies. Despite a drop last month, job growth remains positive, inflation is under control and gross domestic product remains on an upwards trajectory. Yet despite the Canadian residential real estate sector's continued strength, homeowners and shoppers would do well to remain vigilant, says one expert. "The combination of Europe debt crisis and the U.S. Super Committee failure [to reach a budget cut deal] has spiked financial and economic uncertainty," notes Sherry Cooper, chief economist at BMO Capital Markets. "All businesses and households are impacted by these developments, even in stable, prudent Canada." Those concerns were echoed in late November by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, or OECD, which significantly weakened its economic outlook for the country, due in part to slower household spending and moderating demand for Canadian exports. However, judging from continued strong home prices and sales, that message does not seem to be fully getting through. For now, in Canada it seems like business as usual, with housing sector stakeholders asking themselves, "Crisis? What crisis?" Peter Diekmeyer is Bankrate.ca's economics columnist.

Turkey /Türkiye/ - ĺstanbul  Part 68
 
12:50
Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Istanbul, historically known as Constantinople and Byzantium, is the most populous city in Turkey and the country's economic, cultural, and historic center. Istanbul is a transcontinental city in Eurasia, straddling the Bosphorus strait (which separates Europe and Asia) between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea. Its commercial and historical center lies on the European side and about a third of its population lives on the Asian side. The city is the administrative center of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (coterminous with Istanbul Province), both hosting a population of around 14.7 million residents.Istanbul is one of the world's most populous cities and ranks as the world's 7th-largest city proper and the largest European city. Founded under the name of Byzantium on the Sarayburnu promontory around 660 BCE, the city developed to become one of the most significant in history. After its reestablishment as Constantinople in 330 CE, it served as an imperial capital for almost 16 centuries, during the Roman and Byzantine (330–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin (1204–1261), and the Ottoman (1453–1922) empires. It was instrumental in the advancement of Christianity during Roman and Byzantine times, before the Ottomans conquered the city in 1453 and transformed it into an Islamic stronghold and the seat of the Ottoman Caliphate. Istanbul's strategic position on the historic Silk Road, rail networks to Europe and the Middle East, and the only sea route between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean have produced a cosmopolitan populace, although less so since the establishment of the Turkish Republic in 1923. Overlooked for the new capital Ankara during the interwar period, the city has since regained much of its prominence. The population of the city has increased tenfold since the 1950s, as migrants from across Anatolia have moved in and city limits have expanded to accommodate them. Arts, music, film, and cultural festivals were established at the end of the 20th century and continue to be hosted by the city today. Infrastructure improvements have produced a complex transportation network. Approximately 12.56 million foreign visitors arrived in Istanbul in 2015, five years after it was named a European Capital of Culture, making the city the world's fifth most popular tourist destination. The city's biggest attraction is its historic center, partially listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its cultural and entertainment hub can be found across the city's natural harbor, the Golden Horn, in the Beyoğlu district. Considered a global city, Istanbul has one of the fastest-growing metropolitan economies in the world. It hosts the headquarters of many Turkish companies and media outlets and accounts for more than a quarter of the country's gross domestic product. Hoping to capitalize on its revitalization and rapid expansion, Istanbul has bid for the Summer Olympics five times in twenty years.Wikipedia Türkiye/Turkey/ĺstanbul Kardeş şehirler:Sisters cities Alma-Ata (Kazachstan) Amman (Jordanië) Amsterdam (Nederland) Athene (Griekenland) Barcelona (Spanje) Berlijn (Duitsland) Beiroet (Libanon) Boedapest (Hongarije) Boekarest (Roemenië) Buenos Aires (Argentinië) Busan (Zuid-Korea) Casablanca (Marokko) Caïro (Egypte) Constanţa (Roemenië) Constantine (Algerije) Djedda (Saoedi-Arabië) Dubai (Verenigde Arabische Emiraten) Florence (Italië) Havana (Cuba) Ho Chi Minhstad (Vietnam) Houston (Verenigde Staten) Jakarta (Indonesië) Johor Bahru (Maleisië) Kaboel (Afghanistan) Kazan (Tatarije, Rusland) Keulen (Duitsland) Khartoem (Soedan) Lahore (Pakistan) Merv (Turkmenistan) Mexico-Stad (Mexico) Nagasaki (Japan) Odessa (Oekraïne) Osj (Kirgizië) Parijs (Frankrijk) Plovdiv (Bulgarije) Praag (Tsjechië) Rabat (Marokko) Rio de Janeiro (Brazilië) Rotterdam (Nederland) Sarajevo (Bosnië en Herzegovina) Shanghai (China) Sint-Petersburg (Rusland) Stockholm (Zweden) Straatsburg (Frankrijk) Skopje (Macedonië) Tilburg (Nederland) Tirana (Albanië) Toronto (Canada) Venetië (Italië) Warschau (Polen) Xi'an (China Kaynak:Vikipedia

Hanover MA Business Succession

Hanover MA Business Succession Attorney Pat Kelleher on Business Succession... http://www.myfamilylifeplan.com It would be an understatement to say that family businesses are the backbone of the American economy. Some 90 percent of all businesses in this country are either family-owned or family-controlled. They come in all shapes, sizes and colors, representing all sectors of our economy. From agriculture to services, technology and manufacturing, family businesses generate an estimated one-half of the U.S. Gross National Product and pay half of all wages earned in this country. Not all family businesses are traditional small businesses either. In fact, about one-third of all businesses included in the Fortune 500 are family businesses. But not all of the family business statistics are rosy. Family businesses tend not to outlive their founders. At any given moment, 40 percent of family businesses are in the process of transferring their ownership. Unfortunately, two-thirds of all initial transfers fail. Of the one-third that survives an initial transfer, only one-half will survive a second transfer. Why such a dismal success rate? The reasons are as varied and unique as the businesses and business owners themselves. Nevertheless, many of the failed transfers can be traced to three causes: people, taxes and cash. The family element in every family business can mean the difference between its success or failure during the transfer process. The retirement, disability or death of the business owner are all common events that can trigger a business transfer. Tough questions must be asked and answered. Otherwise, a business that took decades to build can be destroyed overnight. For example, who will run the business after you? Will it be your spouse, one of your children or a non-family member key employee? If your spouse will not run the business, will he or she still be financially dependent on it... or can you make arrangements to ensure they are financially independent of it? What arrangements have you made for the inheritance of your children who are not active in the business? Have you in-law proofed your estate? Thinking ahead to the second-generation transfer of your business, what provisions have you made to encourage thrift and industry among your grandchildren?

China's State Owned Enterprises
 
04:33
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, which was established by the U.S. Congress, recently published a report stating that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is doing everything in its power to ensure that state-owned enterprises dominate the Chinese economy. This strategy has caused increased friction between China's major trading partners. China's state-owned overseas enterprises' expansion has attracted the concern of the political and business community in the U.S., as well as China's dominating state-owned enterprises' policies. In addition, it has stirred up the ire of a number of people in China, with some saying that these CCP policies are "national forward but people backward." That is, the Party always gains at the people's expense. On October 26, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission delivered a report titled China's State-Owned Enterprises And State Capitalism Analysis, which comprehensively analyzed the CCP's control and influence with regards to Chinese companies. The report indicated that the CCP owned and controlled about 50 percent of the gross domestic product. China's state-owned enterprises receive preferential treatment from the regime and enjoy an unfair competitive advantage. Independent expert on China, Gong Shengli, said: "The U.S. report goes right to the heart of the matter, reflecting the true polarization of Chinese enterprises, today." Gong Shengli: "Especially in the last decade, we can clearly see that state-owned enterprises such as China Mobile, China Industrial and Commercial Bank, China Bank, as well as other Chinese banks, went from being small banks to being the vanguard of the global industry. This is evidence of China's state-owned business monopolies gradually expanding around the world." The report also pointed out that China's state-owned enterprises receive benefits from the CCP, thus they have a strong competitive advantage. On the other hand, for other emerging or strategic industries which concern the Chinese regime, the Chinese market are not so tolerant to those American companies. U.S. regulatory information shows that Chinese state-owned enterprises enjoy below market interest rates and preferential tax treatment. The report said during China's accession to the World Trade Organization 10 years ago, it promised not to directly or indirectly affect the business decisions of state-owned enterprises. China has not complied with this commitment, but instead intensified its expansion of state-owned enterprises in order to achieve its national economic goals. The CCP's approach is causing trade disputes with the United States and other countries, leading U.S. officials to scrutinize the CCP's trade practices more and more.

Spain's Worst Quake Since 1954 Precedes EU Nuclear Decision - 4.4 and 5.2
 
00:20
Spain's Worst Quake Since 1954 Precedes EU Nuclear Decision - 4.4 and 5.2 May 12 (Bloomberg) -- Spain's biggest earthquake in 57 years damaged a town and killed eight people, a day before European officials decide on safety checks for atomic plants in response to Japan's quake-related nuclear disaster. Temblors measuring 4.4 and 5.2 yesterday injured 167 people, three seriously, the prime minister's office said in a statement on its website. They were centered in Lorca, a town in the Mediterranean coastal province of Murcia, and caused a "large amount" of damage to property, the government said. European nuclear officials today are set to decide on parameters for safety inspections on atomic power plants in response to the Japanese nuclear crisis caused by a March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Spain's Cofrentes reactor, about 180 kilometers (112 miles) south of Lorca, was undamaged and operating normally, a spokeswoman at the plant said today. The earthquake was the strongest since 1954 when a temblor of about magnitude 6 struck near Granada, southern Spain, according to Pedro Jauregui, a seismologist at the Seismic Registry Unit at the University of Alicante in Spain. That measurement is approximate, he said in a telephone interview. The U.S. Geological Survey reports the Spanish earthquake in that year at 7.9 and lists it as the country's biggest on record. The USGS reported yesterday's second temblor at 5.1. Europe has suffered fewer major earthquakes that nations including Japan that lie on the so-called Ring of Fire, an arc of volcanoes and fault times surrounding the Pacific Basin. Campaign Suspended Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero suspended the campaign today for regional elections in 13 of Spain's 17 states, including Murcia, in response to the disaster and sent 225 members of the military emergency unit to the site, his office said in a statement. Deputy Prime Minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba today will visit the area, where Zapatero said that 140 emergency vehicles are helping in the rescue. The quakes caused "significant" damage to infrastructure, heritage sites and housing, and the government has sent 800 soldiers and policemen to the area, Zapatero said. The government will "spare no expense" in the reconstruction of the town, he told a televised news conference in Madrid today. The quake in Lorca, whose medieval-era castle sits on a ridge where Christians and Muslims battled in the Reconquest, now threatens Murcia's efforts to reorder its public finances as Spain tries to rein in the euro region's third-largest budget deficit and shield its economy from the sovereign debt crisis. Poorest Region Murcia is one of Spain's poorest regions in terms of gross domestic product per capita, according to the National Statistics Institute. The state had the second-largest budget deficit last year at 5 percent of its economic output. Spanish public television showed images of cars crushed under debris and chunks of stone fallen from the facade of the church in Lorca. A field hospital was set up in the town of more than 85,000 people as officials evacuated about 270 patients from a hospital after the building was damaged during the quakes, the Associated Press reported. An alignment of planets yesterday provoked speculation in Italy that a major earthquake would hit Rome. The talk was fed by discussions of the work of the late Raffaele Bendandi, a self-taught seismologist who believed that quakes could be predicted by observing the combined movements of the planets, the sun and the moon. More than 24,000 people were killed or left missing after Japan was struck by the magnitude-9 earthquake and resulting tsunami on March 11. New Zealand's southern city of Christchurch was hit by earthquakes in September and February. The 6.3- magnitude temblor in February killed more than 170 people.

Baucus Continues Push for Job-Creating Trade Deals ahead of Final Vote
 
02:06
October 12, 2011 ***For Immediate Release*** Baucus Continues Push For Job-Creating Trade Deals Ahead Of Final Votes Colombia, Korea, Panama Deals Expected to Clear Final Hurdles in Congress Today, Become Law this Week (Washington, D.C.) -- Montana's senior U.S. Senator Max Baucus took to the Senate floor This afternoon to urge support for job-creating trade deals expected to clear a final vote in the House and Senate today. Baucus passed the Free Trade Agreements with Colombia, Panama and Korea out of his Senate Finance Committee yesterday. "These agreements will increase exports of U.S. goods and services. They'll create tens of thousands of good-paying American jobs. They'll bind us even more closely to three important allies," Baucus said on the floor. "Now more than ever we need to expand commerce and improve our economic fate. Clearly, with unemployment at 9.1 percent, our economy is growing too slowly, consumer demand is weak, American workers, farmers, and ranchers are desperately seeking new customers for their products. The Colombia, Panama, and South Korea trade agreements will help us in three lucrative and fast-growing markets. They will increase exports up to $13 billion each year. They'll boost our gross domestic product by more than $15 billion and they'll support tens of thousands of urgently needed American jobs." Baucus also recognized Montana Stockgrowers Vice President Errol Rice, who testified before Baucus' committee in support of the Korea agreement in May. Baucus has consistently led the fight to pass the FTAs along with the worker retraining assistance he ushered through the Senate in September. The worker retraining program is expected to be signed into law this week along with the FTAs. Colombia The Colombia FTA will provide particular benefits to Montana farmers and ranchers by immediately eliminating Colombia's duties on high-quality Montana beef, wheat and barley. Colombian tariffs currently render Montana malt barley non-competitive and make Montana wheat less competitive than wheat from other countries that have trade agreements with Colombia. The Colombia FTA would also benefit Montana manufacturing firms by immediately eliminating duties on 80 percent of exports to Colombia, with the remainder eliminated over time. Colombian businesses can already sell the vast majority of their products in the United States without paying import duties under U.S. trade preference programs. The U.S.-Colombia FTA would level the playing field and give Montana businesses the same duty-free access to sell their goods in Colombia -- including Montana businesses that participated in Baucus' trade mission in February. Korea The Korea FTA will phase out Korea's 40 percent tariff on U.S. beef imports over 15 years. But, as chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, which oversees trade, Baucus insisted that the United States also take steps to expand beef market access in Korea for American farmers and ranchers. The commitment Baucus secured from the White House regarding beef includes two key elements: 1. The United States Department of Agriculture committed to increase funding that will be used to promote U.S. beef sales in Korea by $1 million in 2011 and to favorably review a request from the beef industry for an additional $10 million over the next five years. This additional support would come from USDA's existing budget and will not add a dime to the deficit. 2. The United States Trade Representative, Ron Kirk, sent Baucus a letter committing to continue working toward the goal of full market access for American beef and hold discussions with Korea once the FTA is implemented. Panama U.S. agricultural exports to Panama have doubled over the last five years. The Panama agreement will improve Montana's market access by immediately eliminating tariffs on Montana's high-quality beef and wheat. It will also ensure Montana exporters do not lose ground to their competitors from Canada and Europe, which have signed their own deals with Panama. ###
