Forbes 400 List Worth $2 Trillion
 
01:05
Forbes magazine recently reported that the 400 richest Americans have a combined worth of around 2 trillion dollars, which breaks the record for the Forbes list, and beats the total from last year by 300 billion dollars. Forbes magazine recently reported that the 400 richest Americans have a combined worth of around 2 trillion dollars, which breaks the record for the Forbes list, and beats the total from last year by 300 billion dollars. A CNBC report published some comparison statistics including that the 2 trillion dollars is more than the combined net worth of half the people in America. The amount is also higher than the separate gross domestic product, or GDP of Italy, Mexico and Canada, and is equal to the estimated size of the underground economy, or black market in the US. Forbes 400 members have an average net worth of 5 billion dollars, which is also higher than ever before. The average age of people in the Forbes 400 list is 66, with only 32 of the people at age 48 or younger. At the top of the list is Bill Gates, who is worth a reported 72 billion dollars, followed by Warren Buffet, at 58 and a half billion. What do you think about the Forbes 400 list?

The green road is the plausible path towards a sustainable future. It's a winding road with a lot of dead end branches, but there is a new kind of social order at the end of the right branch that values basic human needs more than the gross national product.

GDP Propaganda Exposed

A point I neglected to make is that while private sector compensation is not included in the GDP calculation, government compensation is. So if an engineer loses his job at IBM but gets hired as a janitor at the Pentagon, the GDP will go up by the amount of his government salary. WIth this new change, now the GDP will also go up if he get hired to pick up trash on a movie set!

US GDP revised slightly lower as austerity bites - economy
 
00:55
http://www.euronews.com/ Economic growth in the United States was slightly weaker than originally thought in the first three months of the year. Revised figures from the Commerce Department show GDP was up by 2.4 percent. The initial estimate was 2.5 percent. Consumer spending rose, but businesses stocked their shelves at a slower pace and austerity moves by national, state and local government, meant an almost five percent drop in their spending. Still the Federal Reserve's low interest rate policies and stimulus have kept economic growth surprisingly resilient. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke just told the US Congress the central bank would keep that up until policy makers see signs that a sustainable recovery is taking hold. Still Washington's austerity drive is having an effect and most economists expect growth will slow in coming months as further government budget cuts come into effect.

Estimated tax payments are due 4 times a year on April 15, June 15, September 15, and January 15. Tip Pay self-employment tax if your annual net earnings will be $400 or more. Step 2: File a tax return File an annual income tax return. The form you use will depend on how your business is organized -- whether it is a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, or limited liability corporation. Tip Keep tax-related documents for a minimum of 7 years. Step 3: Pay excise tax Pay excise tax if your business engages in qualified activities. For example, excise taxes are levied on certain trucks and buses used on public highways. Step 4: Withhold employment taxes Withhold employment taxes from the salaries of your employees. Employment taxes include withholding, employer matching, and unemployment taxes. Depending on the size of your payroll, employment taxes are due weekly, monthly, or quarterly. Step 5: Pay sales tax Register with your state's tax department and pay sales tax if your business makes a taxable product. Sales taxes are due quarterly or monthly, depending on the rules in your state. Most services are exempt from paying sales taxes. Step 6: Pay additional state and local taxes Pay additional state and local taxes that are applicable to your business. Consult your local government offices or a tax attorney to determine whether you are responsible for additional taxes. Did You Know? In 2008, tax revenues in the United States represented 26.9 percent of the total gross domestic product.

The Responsibility for Developed Countries to Help Developing Countries: Bill Gates (2008)
 
55:13
The development of a country is measured with statistical indexes such as income per capita (per person) (gross domestic product), life expectancy, the rate of literacy, et cetera. The UN has developed the Human Development Index (HDI), a compound indicator of the above statistics, to gauge the level of human development for countries where data is available. Developing countries are, in general, countries that have not achieved a significant degree of industrialization relative to their populations, and have, in most cases, a medium to low standard of living. There is a strong correlation between low income and high population growth. The terms utilized when discussing developing countries refer to the intent and to the constructs of those who utilize these terms. Other terms sometimes used are less developed countries (LDCs), least economically developed countries (LEDCs), "underdeveloped nations" or Third World nations, and "non-industrialized nations". Conversely, developed countries, most economically developed countries (MEDCs), First World nations and "industrialized nations" are the opposite end of the spectrum. To moderate the euphemistic aspect of the word developing, international organizations have started to use the term less economically developed country (LEDCs) for the poorest nations—which can, in no sense, be regarded as developing. That is, LEDCs are the poorest subset of LDCs. This may moderate against a belief that the standard of living across the entire developing world is the same. The concept of the developing nation is found, under one term or another, in numerous theoretical systems having diverse orientations — for example, theories of decolonization, liberation theology, Marxism, anti-imperialism, and political economy. Another important indicator is the sectoral changes that have occurred since the stage of development of the country. On an average, countries with a 50% contribution from the Secondary sector of Manufacturing have grown substantially. Similarly countries with a tertiary Sector stronghold also see greater rate of Economic Development. The "BRIC" countries, Brazil, Russia, India, and China are difficult to categorize because of their rapid economic development in recent years. However, they are still not developed countries. There is criticism of the use of the term 'developing country'. The term implies inferiority of a 'developing country' or 'undeveloped country' compared to a developed country, which many countries dislike. It assumes a desire to 'develop' along the traditional 'Western' model of economic development, which a few countries, such as Cuba and Bhutan, choose not to follow.[12] The term 'developing' implies mobility and does not acknowledge that development may be in decline or static in some countries, particularly in southern African states worst affected by HIV/AIDS. In such cases, the term developing country may be considered a euphemism. The term implies homogeneity between such countries, which vary widely. The term also implies homogeneity within such countries when wealth (and health) of the most and least affluent groups varies widely. Similarly, the term 'developed country' incorrectly implies a lack of continuing economic development/growth in more-developed countries. In general, development entails a modern infrastructure (both physical and institutional), and a move away from low value added sectors such as agriculture and natural resource extraction. Developed countries, in comparison, usually have economic systems based on continuous, self-sustaining economic growth in the tertiary sector of the economy and quaternary sector of the economy and high material standards of living. However, there are notable exceptions, as some countries considered developed have a significant component of primary industries in their national economies, e.g., Norway, Canada, Australia. The USA and Western Europe have a very important agricultural sector, and are major players in international agricultural markets. Also, natural resource extraction can be a very profitable industry (high value added), e.g., oil extraction. An alternative measurement that has been suggested is that of Gross national happiness, measuring the actual satisfaction of people as opposed to how money-oriented a country is. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Developing_country

INDONESIA THE LARGEST ECONOMY IN SOUTHEAST ASIA - G20 MEMBER
 
03:23
INDONESIA THE LARGEST ECONOMY IN SOUTHEAST ASIA - G20 MEMBER With a population of over 242.3 million, Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and represents a sizable consumer market. In 2012, Indonesia had a gross domestic product (GDP) of $894.9 billion, making it the 16th largest economy in the world. (International Monetary Fund) The Indonesian government plays a significant role in Indonesia's market economy in which it owns over 160 enterprises and sets prices for several goods such as electricity, rice and fuel. Indonesia has the largest economy in Southeast Asia and is a member of both the G20 and APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation). According to the IMF, Indonesia is the third fastest growing economy in the G20 after India and China. The country's main economic industries include petroleum and natural gas, apparel, textiles, apparel, mining, tourism and rubber. Indonesia has endured the recent global financial crisis through its reliance on domestic consumption to drive continual economic growth. In addition, investment from both foreign and domestic sources has supported the Indonesian economy. Due to its recent economic growth and sound fiscal policies, Indonesia's debt to GDP ratio has steadily declined. Trade was been expanding swiftly between the United States and Indonesia in the last several years. Since 2005, U.S. exports to Indonesia have more than doubled from $3.1 million to $8 million in 2012. The main export categories are transportation equipment, agricultural products, chemicals, and machinery. Indonesia is actively involved with Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). APEC was formed in 1989. It serves as a multilateral forum in which Asian and Pacific economies can solve economic problems and cooperate in developing key economic sectors. Collectively, the 21 economies of APEC, which touch the Pacific Ocean, represent a large consumer market— nearly half the world's population, nearly half of all world trade and more than $31 trillion in economic output. The APEC economies are: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Republic of the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, United States and Vietnam. Association of SouthEast Asian Nations (ASEAN) On October 7, 2003, 10 Southeast Asian nations signed an agreement to become an economic union by 2020. The agreement sets deadlines for lowering travel restrictions and tariffs in the region of 500 million people. Trade in this ASEAN Economic Community totals more than $720 billion a year. ASEAN includes Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Laos, Vietnam, Brunei and Myanmar. Indonesia will host the 25th Annual APEC meetings in 2013

Canada's Beer Industry Creates 1 Out of 100 Jobs

Canada's economy is supported by the country's domestic beer industry, and a recent report claims that one out of every hundred Canadian jobs is created by something beer related. Canada's economy is supported by the country's domestic beer industry, and a recent report claims that one out of every one hundred jobs is in the beer industry. 85 percent of the beer consumed in Canada was brewed there, and the brewing industry makes up around one percent of the country's gross domestic product. It contributes 5 point 8 billion dollars in tax revenue, and it is reportedly bigger than the dairy farming industry and three and a half times bigger than the market for wine and spirits. According to a report from the Conference Board of Canada, adults drink an average of 80 liters of beer annually, and beer makes up 45 percent of all alcoholic beverage sales in the country. John Sleeman, the founder of Sleeman Breweries Ltd. and chair of the industry lobby group Beer Canada, said "Certainly as the baby boomers age, our drinking patterns change. But one of the things industry needs to do, as you may change your consumption patterns we need to make ourselves attractive and interesting to new consumers who are coming into the segment." It's important to keep the industry going because it reportedly employs over 160 thousand Canadians.

economics: National income(gdp,ndp,gnp,nnp,etc) in hindi
 
58:06
basis of economics ... national incone ,GDP,GNP,etc poverty measurement What is economics? Why are some countries rich and some countries poor? Why do women earn less than men? How can data help us understand the world? Why do we ignore information that could help us make better decisions? What causes recessions? Economics can help us answer these questions. Below, we’ve provided links to short articles that illustrate what economics is and how it connects to our everyday lives. Economics can be defined in a few different ways. It’s the study of scarcity, the study of how people use resources and respond to incentives, or the study of decision-making. It often involves topics like wealth and finance, but it’s not all about money. Economics is a broad discipline that helps us understand historical trends, interpret today’s headlines, and make predictions about the coming years. Economics ranges from the very small to the very large. The study of individual decisions is called microeconomics. The study of the economy as a whole is called macroeconomics. A microeconomist might focus on families’ medical debt, whereas a macroeconomist might focus on sovereign debt. What do economists do? Economists have all kinds of jobs, such as professors, government advisors, consultants, and private sector employees. Using theoretical models or empirical data, they evaluate programs, study human behavior, and explain social phenomena. And, their contributions inform everything from public policy to household decisions. Economics intersects many disciplines. Its applications include health, gender, the environment, education, and immigration. You can check out the field’s classification system (called JEL codes) for more topics that economists study. Why should I care about economics? Economics affects everyone’s lives. Learning about economic concepts can help you to understand the news, make financial decisions, shape public policy, and see the world in a new way. If you are a student, you might be wondering about how much economists earn or how to apply to graduate school in economics. We have resources on everything from learning more about economics to preparing for a career in economics. If you are a journalist, you might want research summaries and complimentary access to our journal publications — both reliable sources of current economic information. If you are an educator, you might be looking for ways to make economics more exciting in the classroom, get complimentary journal access for high school students, or incorporate real-world examples of economics concepts into lesson plans. Or, you might just want to learn more; our Research Highlight series is a great place to start. Economists can study a wide variety of topics. The following videos highlight some of the ways economists use data to explore everything. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Gate -thermodynamics 1-7(system,boundary ,surrounding,process,cycle,graph drawing)" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OySQw4Qim9Y -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Why Are American Health Care Costs So High?

In which John discusses the complicated reasons why the United States spends so much more on health care than any other country in the world, and along the way reveals some surprising information, including that Americans spend more of their tax dollars on public health care than people in Canada, the UK, or Australia. Who's at fault? Insurance companies? Drug companies? Malpractice lawyers? Hospitals? Or is it more complicated than a simple blame game? (Hint: It's that one.) For a much more thorough examination of health care expenses in America, I recommend this series at The Incidental Economist: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/what-makes-the-us-health-care-system-so-expensive-introduction/ The Commonwealth Fund's Study of Health Care Prices in the US: http://www.commonwealthfund.org/~/media/Files/Publications/Issue%20Brief/2012/May/1595_Squires_explaining_high_hlt_care_spending_intl_brief.pdf Some of the stats in this video also come from this New York Times story: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/02/health/colonoscopies-explain-why-us-leads-the-world-in-health-expenditures.html?pagewanted=all This is the first part in what will be a periodic series on health care costs and reforms leading up to the introduction of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, in 2014.

Easing is the Name of the Game | Market Wrap 28-05-13 | Vantage FX UK
 
02:38
Vantage FX UK (www.vantagefx.co.uk) look back at the key data from the last week, with the spotlight on sterling, and look forward to the news expected in the coming week. Easing is the Name of the Game In the early half of the week the pound floundered -- we saw cable drop on Tuesday morning after UK CPI data was released. The data showed that inflation in the UK retreated more than expected. Last month consumer prices increased by 2.4%, versus the projected 2.6% figure. It is hardly surprising that all members of the MPC concurred that economic stimulus could help the UK on its road to recovery. The minutes from the latest MPC meeting, released on Wednesday, gave the pound a further pounding, on the back of speculation that the Bank of England will employ further monetary easing. However sterling did recoup some of its losses against the dollar on Thursday as the UK economy expanded by 0.3% in the first quarter. Also on Thursday, Eurozone PMI figures showed that businesses in the EU are declining more slowly than in previous months. Figures for the service sector in Germany and France came in slightly lower than analysts' predictions, but slightly higher than last month's results. On Friday German GDP was on a par with the projected figures, while the German Consumer Confidence Survey came in much higher than expected. This gave the euro some much-needed relief, and some analysts predict that the euro will break out of its downward spiral. Over in the US, Bernanke took a turn on Wednesday by announcing that reining in the current QE programme would jeopardize the economic recovery. He had previously said that the Fed may wind down easing before the year end, but if his most recent statement is anything to go by, that now looks unlikely. On Friday the dollar strengthened as Durable Goods orders came in significantly higher than expected at 3.3%, against the predicted increase of 1.5%. Now here's what this week has in store. Tomorrow we have German unemployment figures for May followed by German CPI, and the Canadian rate decision in the afternoon. Thursday is a data packed day with Swiss GDP and Eurozone Confidence Reports, followed by US GDP and Japanese CPI to round off the day. Then on Friday we have Eurozone CPI, Eurozone unemployment and Canadian GDP. Thanks for watching and see you next week!

Making of epic 'Cotton Candy' - Durga Puja carnival
 
01:03
Bright stalls with cotton candy like this one are a common sight in the carnival in Kolkata which is Durga Puja. Cotton candy (U.S., India, Canada), candy floss, or candyfloss (UK, Ireland, New Zealand, India and South Africa), or fairy floss (Australia) is a form of spun sugar. Since it comprises mostly air, a small initial quantity of sugar generates a tremendously greater final volume, causing servings to be physically large and voluminous. A typical serving on a stick is approximately 1 ounce/30 grams. It is sometimes sold in bags containing several servings. Cotton candy is often served at carnivals or circuses. Durga Puja, also referred to as Durgotsava or Sharadotsav is an annual Hindu festival in South Asia that celebrates worship of the Hindu goddess Durga. It refers to all the six days observed as Mahalaya, Shashthi, Maha Saptami, Maha Ashtami, Maha Navami and Vijayadashami. The dates of Durga Puja celebrations are set according to the traditional Hindu calendar and the fortnight corresponding to the festival is called Devi Paksha, 'Fortnight of the Goddess'). Devi Paksha is preceded by Mahalaya, the last day of the previous fortnight Pitri Paksha, 'Fortnight of the Forefathers'), and is ended on Kojagori Lokkhi Puja ('Worship of Goddess Lakshmi on Kojagori Full Moon Night'). Durga Puja festival marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the evil buffalo demon Mahishasura. Thus, Durga Puja festival epitomises the victory of Good over Evil. In Kolkata alone more than two thousand pandals are set up, all clamouring for the admiration and praise of the populace. The city is adorned with lights. People from all over the country visit the city at this time, and every night is one mad carnival where thousands of people go 'pandal-hopping' with their friends and family. Traffic comes to a standstill, and indeed, most people abandon their vehicles to travel by foot after a point. A special task force is deployed to control law and order. Durga Puja in Kolkata is often referred to as the Rio Carnival of the Eastern Hemisphere. Kolkata is the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal. Located on the east bank of the Hooghly river, it is the principal commercial, cultural, and educational centre of East India, while the Port of Kolkata is India's oldest operating port as well as its sole major riverine port. As of 2011, the city had 4.5 million residents; the urban agglomeration, which comprises the city and its suburbs, was home to approximately 14.1 million, making it the third-most populous metropolitan area in India. As of 2008, its economic output as measured by gross domestic product ranked third among South Asian cities, behind Mumbai and Delhi.

Slovenia on meeting aid target: 'It's tough'
 
03:19
Becoming a donor in 2004, Slovenia has promised to bring its aid spending to 0.33 percent of the gross domestic product by 2015. How is it progressing? The country is not yet on target, Božo Cerar acknowledged during his talk with Devex President Raj Kumar at the 2012 European Development Days. The Slovenian state secretary and acting minister for development cooperation and humanitarian aid expects the country's foreign aid to reach 0.13 percent of GDP this year, citing the lingering eurozone crisis for being off track. Cerar, like other aid ministers who spoke with Devex at EDD12, supports the European Commission's proposal to invest some €100 billion ($130 million) in development cooperation from 2014 to 2020. In this conversation, the state secretary also affirmed the unique and crucial roles of Slovenian nongovernmental organizations and the private sector in the country's foreign aid program. An official media partner of EDD12, Devex was in Brussels to talk with the movers and shakers in international development. We video-taped conversations with more than 50 decision makers and thought leaders from the private, nonprofit and public sectors on hot-button issues in humanitarian relief, global health, social responsibility and international development.

Feeding 9 Billion People: Does Canada Have the Science and Innovation Framework?
 
34:58
Dr. John Kennelly describes the success of agriculture in feeding a world population that has quadrupled in the last 80 years. Canada's agricultural land base, though small, is significant in that success story because much of Canada's primary food production (grain, oilseeds and meat) is exported. But can Canada's agriculture continue to be a major player in feeding 9 billion people? Dr. Kennelly makes the case that we are making decisions about what kind of future we want for our children. Self sufficiency in food production is essential for developing countries but so is the capacity of a small number of countries to export food, the safety buffer when food production risks increase with climate change. Canada's problem: we are reducing investment in food production research and development. He discusses Canada's social licence in food production and our record around food safety, environmental sustainability, and cattle-grassland production systems. He makes the case that we need to talk about nutritional security and food for health in Canada. He concludes by describing where Canada's agricultural faculties sit in the state of the world's food research and education. And he makes the case for his faculty's impact in research, education and product development. Dr. John Kennelly is Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Alberta. His keynote presentation was part of the Alberta Institute of Agrologists' Banff Conference, March 26-28, 2013.

Spanish unemployment edges down - economy
 
01:01
http://www.euronews.com/ There is a glimmer of good news for the Spanish government as the number of people registered as unemployed there edged down in March. It is the first time in five years that the total has fallen in that month. But the decline - by just under 5,000 - still means that there are more than five million people looking for work. The Labour Ministry said the figures show the government's policies are working. But jobseekers remain cautious. One man said: "Let's see if it's true, that unemployment is going down and we can make some progress." A woman outside a Madrid job centre longed for a jobless total below the current 26 percent saying: "Unemployment is still increasing anyway. I sure hope it does decrease, even if it's only to 15 or 20 percent, but it needs to go down because the situation in this country is very bad." The unemployment figures illustrate the massive job the Madrid government faces in digging the country out of recession. Reportedly Spain is about to revise down its growth forecast for 2013. A government source told the Reuters news agency that Spain's gross domestic product (GDP) will be forecast to shrink by 1.0 percent, rather than 0.5 percent But a European Commission spokesman has denied rumours that it is in talks with Madrid over giving it more time to cut its budget deficit. Spain reported a deficit of 6.98 percent of GDP in 2012, excluding the cost of propping up its ailing banks, missing its EU-agreed target, of 6.3 percent, for the second year in a row. By 2014 it is supposed to cut the deficit to 3.0 percent of GDP. Find us on: Youtube http://bit.ly/zr3upY Facebook http://www.facebook.com/euronews.fans Twitter http://twitter.com/euronews

In this digital age, the screen-based industry is rapidly changing to meet the demands of an increasingly competitive and global marketplace. Statistics Canada reported operating revenues of $3.3 billion in 2010 for the Canadian film and television industries. A 2011 study by the Canadian Media Production Association (CMPA) found that film and television production in Canada generated GDP of $7.46 billion for the Canadian economy, including $3.07 billion in production-industry GDP and $4.39 billion in spin-off GDP. Despite the 2008 economic recession, Canada's screen-based industry continues to flourish. However, media industries are not only key economic drivers, they are also one of the most important influencers of our national culture, and of our identities.

The Global Economy & European Debt Crisis: U.S. Fiscal Policy - Austerity and Stimulus (2012)
 
57:54
In economics, austerity describes policies used by governments to reduce budget deficits during adverse economic conditions. These policies may include spending cuts, tax increases, or a mixture of the two. Austerity policies may be attempts to demonstrate governments' liquidity to their creditors and credit rating agencies by bringing fiscal incomes closer to expenditures. In macroeconomics, reducing government deficits generally increases unemployment in the short run. This increases safety net spending and reduces tax revenues, to some extent. Government spending contributes to gross domestic product (GDP), so the debt-to-GDP ratio, an index of liquidity, may not immediately improve. Short-term deficit spending contributes to GDP growth particularly when consumers and businesses are unwilling or unable to spend. Under the controversial theory of expansionary fiscal contraction (EFC), a major reduction in government spending can change future expectations about taxes and government spending, encouraging private consumption and resulting in overall economic expansion. Initial austerity results in Europe have been as predicted by macroeconomics, with unemployment rising to record levels and debt-to-GDP ratios rising, despite reductions in budget deficits relative to GDP. Eurostat reported that unemployment in the 17 Euro area countries (EA17) reached record levels in March 2013, at 12.1%,[8] up from 11.0% in March 2012 and 10.3% in March 2011;[9] and that the overall debt-to-GDP ratio for the EA17 was 70.1% in 2008, 80.0% in 2009, 85.4% in 2010, 87.3% in 2011, and 90.6% in 2012.[10][11][12] Further, real GDP in the EA17 declined for six straight quarters from Q4 2011 to Q1 2013.[13] The U.S. Congressional Budget Office estimated in August 2012 that if the U.S. implemented moderate austerity measures, the unemployment rate would rise by over 1% and economic growth would be significantly reduced in 2013.[14] The U.S. partially avoided the "fiscal cliff" through the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. U.S. unemployment has fallen steadily from a peak of 10% in early 2010 to 7.6% by March 2013. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austerity

Dudley - Prospects for the Economy and Monetary Policy
 
13:58
Remarks by William C. Dudley, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Federal Reserve Bank of New York at New York University's Stern School of Business, New York City on February 28, 2011. It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to speak here today. My remarks will focus primarily on two areas. First, what is the outlook for economic activity, employment and inflation? In particular, what are the areas of vulnerability that we should be most concerned about? Second, what does the outlook imply for monetary policy? As always, what I will say reflects my own views and opinions, not necessarily those of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) or the Federal Reserve System. In my talk, I'll argue that the economic outlook has improved considerably. Despite this, we are still very far away from achieving our dual mandate of maximum sustainable employment and price stability. Faster progress toward these objectives would be very welcome and need not require an early change in the stance of monetary policy. However, I'll also focus on some issues with respect to inflation that will merit careful monitoring. In particular, we need to keep a close watch on how households and businesses respond to commodity price pressures. The key issue here is whether the rise in commodity prices will unduly push up inflation expectations. Inflation expectations are well-anchored today and we intend to keep it that way. A sustained rise in medium-term inflation expectations would represent a threat to our price stability mandate and would not be tolerated. Turning first to the economic outlook, the situation looks considerably brighter than six months ago. On the activity side, a wide range of indicators show a broadening and strengthening of demand and production. For example, on the demand side, real personal consumption expenditures rose at a 4.1 percent annual rate during the fourth quarter. This compares with only a 2.2 percent annual rate during the first three quarters of 2010 (Chart 1). Orders and production are following suit. For example, the Institute of Supply Management index of new orders for manufacturers climbed to 67.8 in January, the highest level since January of 2004 (Chart 2). The revival in activity, in turn, has been accompanied by improving consumer and business confidence. For example, the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index rose to 77.5 in February, up from 68.9 six months earlier (Chart 3). Indeed, the 2.8 percent annualized growth rate of real gross domestic product (GDP) in the fourth quarter may understate the economy's forward momentum. That is because real GDP growth in the quarter was held back by a sharp slowing in the pace of inventory accumulation. The revival in demand, production and confidence strongly suggests that we may be much closer to establishing a virtuous circle in which rising demand generates more rapid income and employment growth, which in turn bolsters confidence and leads to further increases in spending. The only major missing piece of the puzzle is the absence of strong payroll employment growth. We will need to see sustained strong employment growth in order to be certain that this virtuous circle has become firmly established. ...

Barbados role model for Brazil improvement
 
10:53
Barbados has an estimated population of 284,000 people, with around 80,000 living in or around Bridgetown, the largest city and the country's capital. In 1966, Barbados became an independent state and Commonwealth realm, retaining Queen Elizabeth II as Head of State. Barbados is one of the Caribbean's leading tourist destinations and is one of the most developed islands in the region, despite it actually being classed as an Atlantic Island. In 2011 Barbados ranked 2nd in the Americas (16th globally) on Transparency International's Corruption Perception Index, behind Canada. Barbados is an original Member (1995) of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), and participates actively in its work. As of December 2007, Barbados is linked by an Economic Partnership Agreement with the European Commission. The European Union is presently assisting Barbados with a €10 million program of modernization of the country's International Business and Financial Services Sector. Barbados maintains the third largest stock exchange in the Caribbean region. At present, officials at the stock exchange are investigating the possibility of augmenting the local exchange with an International Securities Market (ISM) venture. Barbados is the 51st richest country in the world in terms of GDP (Gross Domestic Product) per capita, has a well-developed mixed economy, and a moderately high standard of living. According to the World Bank, Barbados is classified as being in its 66 top high income economies of the world. Political, economic and social stability have given it one of the highest standards of living in the developing world. It is a centre for financial services and has offshore reserves of oil and natural gas. A shortage of jobs has prompted many Barbadians - more often known as Bajans - to find work abroad. The money that they send home is an important source of income. Most Barbadians are the descendants of African slaves who were brought to the island from the 17th century to work the sugar cane plantations. Recently Barbados has seen tourism overtake the export of sugar as its main revenue earner, plus the ocean front real estate values have set world records, plus one of the most exclusive and prestigious resorts in the world, called; "Sandy Lane" see: http://www.sandylane.com/ Known for its beaches and cricket - its national sport - the former British colony has a dual heritage: English - evident in its stone-built Anglican churches and Saturday race meetings - and African, reflected in its music and dance.

Kyrgyzstan: Gold mine protesters torch vehicles in clashes
 
00:58
Kyrgyzstan authorities have announced a state of emergency in the country's Issyk-Kul region following a fifth day with more than 2,000 protesters blocking a road leading to the Kumtor Gold Mine, owned by Canadian mining company Centerra Gold. Demonstrators threw stones at police and set fire to vehicles. Army troops have been deployed to the scene as clashes between police and local residents broke out early Friday. At least 55 people have been injured, and 92 arrested. According to preliminary information the cost of the damage caused by the clashes is around $1.4m (€1m). Protests started when more than 2,000 residents from nearby villages cut the road several days ago. They claim Centerra Gold's operations at the Kumtor Gold Mine harm the environment, and are demanding compensation and nationalisation of the mine. During the evening on May 30, a group of demonstrators entered a power transformer unit and cut the electricity going to the mine. Centerra Gold says they are now using a backup diesel generator to manage ice and waste operations at the mine, which began operating in 1997 and was linked to an environmental incident in 1998 when a truck carrying 1,762 kilograms of sodium cyanide, a chemical used to dissolve gold from granulated ore, fell into the Barskaun River. Kyrgyzstan's Economics Minister Temir Sariyev, the governor of Issyk-Kul, and the Minister of Youth, Labour and Employment, Aliasbek Alymkulov, are at the scene. Authorities have attempted to find a peaceful solution to the situation, but so far an agreement has not been reached. Demonstrators are also demanding that Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev come to the scene. Located in the Tian Shan mountains at more than 4,000 metres (14,000 feet) above sea level, Kumtor is the second-highest gold mining operation in the world after the Yanacocha gold mine in Peru. The mine alone accounts for about 12 percent of Kyrgyzstan's annual Gross Domestic Product.
