The corridor stretches along the length of Pakistan and the combined value of all the projects equals all the foreign direct investment in the country since 1970. The megaproject also marks as China’s biggest overseas investment. Yet, a plan of this magnitude is not without its geo-economic challenges.

The project, known as the Belt and Road initiative, spans 68 countries through several land corridors and maritime routes. It covers about 65 percent of the world's population, which equals 40 percent of the global GDP. It is nothing less than the most ambitious geo-economic project in recent history, and it seeks to revive the ancient Silk Road.

Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Tariffs can be used as a useful tool to protect domestic industry or to serve as a punitive measure against another country. But President Trump’s bluster and threats of imposing tariffs on foreign imports to the US have raised the specter of a trade war with China, and more recently, Mexico. The “weapons” used in a trade war are the stuff we use everyday — the food we eat, the cars we drive to work and the computers we use. If a trade war can have such a pervasive impact on our daily lives, why would a country choose to engage in one? And what even is a trade war anyway?

China is slated to open wider to foreign investment in multiple fields including electric cars, as international companies like Tesla set their eyes on the growing opportunities in the country. US electric carmaker Tesla on Monday broke new ground with its Shanghai factory, becoming the first to benefit from a new policy allowing foreign carmakers to set up wholly-owned subsidiaries in China, Xinhua reported. “The market is very big for electric vehicles. And still, even in China, electric cars are still a small percentage of the total number of cars sold, so we think the opportunity is very significant for all companies,” Elon Musk, CEO of US electric carmaker Tesla, said in an interview with China Central Television. China set a milestone record of selling 1 million new energy vehicles (NEVs) in 2018. The country aims to double the sales to 2 million in 2020. China has unveiled a shortened negative list for foreign investment, cutting the number of items down to 48 at the moment from 63 in June 2018, which has widened market access for foreign investment in primary, secondary, and tertiary sectors, according to Xinhua. Ning Jizhe, deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission, stressed that China will implement the second batch of major foreign investment projects in China, including NEVs and new energy batteries. Ning introduced that there will be two more catalogues to be issued this year: an industrial catalogue for foreign investment the catalogue of advantageous industries for foreign investment in the central and western regions. “These two catalogues are meant to expand the fields that are encouraged to host foreign investment and to increase foreign investment into the country,” Ning said. “We feel very optimistic about the long-term future. We think the direction has been great,” Musk noted, giving a thumbs-up to China’s reform and opening-up measures.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Ning Jizhe, the deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission expressed their views on the Chinese automobile market and policy. Musk said electric cars account for a small percentage of the total number of cars sold in China, so the opportunity in the Chinese market is still big. Ning stressed that China will implement the second round of foreign investment projects this year, which includes new-energy vehicles and batteries.

In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history, and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine. In his new book "Principles", Dalio shares what he’s learned over the course of his remarkable career, arguing that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules, and understood like machines. The book’s hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of “radical truth” and “radical transparency,” offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they’re seeking to achieve. Moderated by Jordan Thibodeau.

China has one of the most restrictive internet environments in the world. Online censorship and content manipulation are increasing, and reports of physical attacks on domestic human rights defenders and cyberattacks on overseas human rights groups are growing. Communist Party General Secretary Xi Jinping has made control of the internet and media one of his top priorities, viewing it as paramount to internal stability and the Party’s long-term survival. In recent months, the Chinese government and Communist Party have shut down popular domestic social media apps containing a range of content, including jokes, that does not meet its standards of “core socialist values.” The Chinese government has also sought to export its vision of “internet sovereignty” and censorship. The hearing will explore these issues and their impact on the interests of the U.S. and our allies. It will also look at U.S. policies to promote internet freedom and firewall circumvention in China’s increasingly restrictive environment, and the impact of Chinese government censorship globally.

There is good reason to think China's rise might be the most important development in world politics during the 21st century. America is now the dominant great power in the Asia-Pacific region, and it is often a jealous god. That raises the question: is a powerful China likely to clash with the United States? Moreover, can a rising China live peacefully with its neighbors, including Japan, India, and Vietnam? Mearsheimer will argue that, if China's economic growth continues, it will build much more powerful military forces than it now has and attempt to dominate Asia the way the United States dominates the Western Hemisphere. However, the US and China's neighbors will go to great lengths to contain China and prevent it from becoming a regional hegemon--leading to an intense security competition in the Asia-Pacific region, with the ever-present danger of war. John J. Mearsheimer is the R. Wendell Harrison distinguished service professor of political science and codirector of the Program on International Security Policy at the University of Chicago, where he has taught since 1982. He graduated from West Point in 1970 and served five years as an officer in the US Air Force before receiving his PhD from Cornell in 1980. Winner of the 1985 Quantrell Award for distinguished teaching, Mearsheimer has written extensively about security issues and international politics, publishing numerous journal articles and five books, including the 2011 Why Leaders Lie: The Truth about Lying in International Politics, which has been translated into ten different languages.

Although leaders in Asia, Europe and the Americas are struggling to figure out what are the implications of Donald J. Trump's election to the U.S. presidency. At least in those regions, the president-elect made passing references during the campaign to Japan’s future security status, or whether Washington should continue to support NATO and, of course, his desire to build that great wall along the U.S.-Mexican border. Africa, by contrast, was barely discussed, if at all, during the seemingly never-ending 18-month duel between Trump and his former rival Hillary Clinton. Now, with the election settled, African policy makers are struggling to figure out what it will mean for their countries when a potentially-isolationist U.S. president assumes power next January. There are early indications that some African countries may lean further in to China’s embrace to compensate for what they expect could be a retrenchment in U.S. trade, investment and overall engagement on the continent. For Beijing, this could be a huge opportunity to strengthen its diplomatic positioning in Africa as the Chinese continue their massive aid, infrastructure and investment drive across the continent. All that Chinese money is also now paying dividends in the form of improved public opinion towards the Chinese in Africa which, according to a 2016 Afrobarometer survey, has been steadily rising. So if Washington either falters or retreats from constructive engagement in Africa, China may in fact be a major beneficiary. South Africa, in particular, has been steadily shifting its foreign policy away from the West towards China for the past five years. Now, with the election of Donald Trump, Pretoria "should no longer count on Washington in the international community as its done in the past" warns University of the Witswatersrand international relations professor John Stremlau. Dr. Stremlau joins Eric & Cobus to discuss why he thinks president-elect Trump is such a threat to African stability and how this new direction in U.S. foreign policy could re-shape Africa’s international relations. Join the discussion. Do you think it’s premature to be worried about president-elect Trump’s foreign policy in Africa and how it might damage relations with Africa while helping China’s engagement on the continent?

“2018 has been very different from 2008 or 2000,” says Chief Investment Officer Yves Bonzon in his video outlook. Instead, he draws parallels with the situation in 1987, when markets recovered rapidly after a sudden correction. Lesson #1: An unusual year As 2018 is drawing to a close, before planning for 2019, it is important to reflect on what happened. What are the lessons learned from 2018? This was in many ways a very particular year. One of the main developments was unlike previous market episodes when bond markets were leading equities. This year, equity markets led credit and treasury markets – an unusual pattern investors are not familiar with. Lesson #2: Market drivers in 2018 What were the actual drivers in markets this year? Below the surface, the main market driver was the policy shift towards monetary normalisation and fiscal stimulus in the US. That led to a significant adjustment in the cost of capital, with yields rising. But this phenomenon was actually unique to the United States. In other parts of the world – in Europe in particular, but in China as well – interest rates came down. The tightening of liquidity by the US Federal Reserve though, triggered a broad increase in asset yields. At the same time, that endogenous driver was very difficult to read because we had the extra factor of the China-US trade tensions. This is sort of a permanent external shock that further complicated the market reading for investors. Lesson #3: 2018 is not a repeat of 2008 Going into 2019, we think the most crucial aspect for investors to understand is that what they experienced this year in the markets is not a repeat of 2000 or 2008. Circumstances are different. We would rather draw parallels with a year like 1987, when rates went up from 7 to 10 per cent in the US, markets peaked in August, then started a correction that turned into a market crash driven by portfolio insurance, finally bottomed out in October and slowly recovered in the subsequent year.

How do major historical events change the lives of everyday people? When Scott Tong moved to Shanghai to open Marketplace’s first bureau in China, he took the opportunity to reconnect with branches of his family that stayed in China after his parents fled mainland China to live in the United States. What he found were rich accounts of his relatives’ lives during Chinese social and political changes spanning the fall of the Qing dynasty, the occupation by the Japanese during World War II, the early years of the People’s Republic and the opening up to the West under Deng Xiaoping. In his new book, “A Village with My Name: A Family History of China’s Opening to the World,” Tong recounts the stories of his relatives and ancestors, and explores questions about globalization, collective memory and the connections between nations. Join us as Scott Tong guides us through China’s defining historical moments from a different perspective.

The total investment necessary to begin operation of a single new GNC franchise store ranges from approximately $180,504 to $347,270. To convert a single company-owned store to a franchise store ranges from$145,050 to $855,550. You will need to have at least $130,000 in liquid assets to qualify for your own GNC. Royalty is 6% of gross sales, ad fee is 3% of gross sales. Once your contract is up with GNC you have options for renewal by paying an amount equal to 37 1/2% of the original franchise fee. You will possibly be awarded a protected territory which will vary depending on if you are situated in a mall or standalone location. If you are off put by lawsuits GNC may not be your best choice for a franchise. Class action lawsuits against GNC include complaints of "Unlawful Business Practices" and "Consumer Fraud" relating to how GNC offers discounts on alleged "regular priced" items. The plaintiffs claiming the regular prices are illusory and overstated and this led buyers to believe they were receiving a substantial discount when they were in fact not. There are several lawsuits related to this pricing scheme. There were also a lawsuits seeking class action certification relating to their Gold Card program which was discontinued and members allegedly were not compensated. Lawsuits relating to deceptive advertising and allegedly misleading benefit claims of products, lawsuits concerning GNC's policy of calculating minimum wage and overtime. There have been of course many lawsuits related to negative health effects allegedly caused by products sold at GNC stores. In fact the GNC franchise FDD reveals almost 30 pages of lawsuits both ongoing and concluded. So how much does an average GNC store make? In their 2017 FDD GNC includes a financial representation that included revenues from 1021 stores that had been in business the entire 1 year reporting period of 2016. Average gross sales for that period were $487,358 with 421 stores exceeding that amount, and of course many stores not making that amount. Now what you should know when we go back to the 2014 FDD we have on file, average earnings back then were $535,901 for the year 2013, and $513,260 for 2014. We see a very clear trend of year over year declining revenues Now if you are thinking $480,000 in gross revenue is still not that bad let's explore that thought. Don't forget you have to pay almost 10% right off the top to corporate for royalties and ad fees. Then back out your rent, payroll, taxes, cost of goods sold, insurance, licensing, etc what are you left with? Well that number will be highly variable based on the size of your store, number of employees, what state you are in etc. Fortunately we did find an approximation in the GNC FDD of what your rent and maintenance might be based on what other stores have experienced and I'll post that chart on the screen, pause the video if you want to take a closer look. Now to give you all a point of reference, and this really is an apples to oranges comparison so take it for what its worth, but the 2nd lowest earnings franchise on the QSR50, which is a list of the top 50 fast food stores, shows Subway stores earning $422,000. Thats the second lowest amount you can earn out of all 50 franchises with only Baskin-Robbins lower and they are often seasonal. If we reverse the sort from highest to lowest we see Chick-fil-A franchises earning 10 times that amount at 4.4 million per store. But Chick-Fil-A is a different story altogether and I'll put a link at the end of this piece to our Chick-fil-A video for anyone that is interested. So to wrap up there has been a definite decline in overall store revenue which GNC holdings attributes to decline in sales, pressure to slash prices on expiring products, and challenges within the sector. Most analysts and we would wholeheartedly agree, suggest the market is over saturated with brick and mortar options, and competing with online retailers with much lower expenses will become increasingly difficult. How many people will drive to a store when they can get same or similar products online for a lower cost delivered right to their door? And we all know the trend of people making purchases online. If you didn't already know GNC has plans to divest themselves of over 1000 company owned stores over the next few years that they will sell to franchisees. Can I ask you a question, when you have highly profitable stores with an amazing future is your first thought to sell them? You can make your own decision. https://www.gncfranchising.com/ https://www.bizjournals.com/pittsburgh/news/2016/04/28/gnc-ceo-selling-off-of-company-stores-only.html https://www.qsrmagazine.com/content/qsr50-2017-top-50-chart http://www.franchise.city

In 2007 when China's Exim Bank unveiled a massive $6 billion mining deal in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, it completely rocked the normally-staid world of international development finance. The agreement, known as "The China Deal" or Sicomines, was among the first of these huge Chinese infrastructure-for-resources deals that are now commonplace across Africa. Ten years ago, though, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund were pretty much the only players that threw around that kind of cash in countries like the DRC. So when the Chinese came along with the Sicomines deal, many observers saw it as a direct challenge to the IMF's once unrivaled dominance of international development finance in places like the Congo. While a feared Chinese-IMF rivalry did not ultimately materialize, "The China Deal" did create a lot of problems. The IMF responded defensively, according to new research from Sino-Congolese scholar Dr. Johanna Malm at Roskilde University in Denmark. Fearing they might be pushed aside by the Chinese, the IMF opted to make it easier for the Congolese government to borrow yet more money, adding to Kinshasa's already dangerously-high debt load. Dr. Malm joins Eric & Cobus to discuss "The China Deal" and why the IMF's missteps in the Congo produced costly-consequences for an already financially-distressed government.

David Goldman: Will China overtake the U.S. as the world's leading superpower? David Goldman is an American economist, music critic, and author, best known for his series of online essays in the Asia Times under the pseudonym Spengler. He is the Wax Family Fellow at the Middle East Forum, a Senior Fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, and a member of the Board of Advisors of Sino-Israel Government Network and Academic Leadership (SIGNAL). According to the Claremont Review of Books, the "Spengler" columns in the Asia Times have attracted readership in the millions. His analyses of global events have become highly regarded. Former C.I.A. National Intelligence Council Vice Chairman Herbert E. Meyer said, "Ask anyone in the intelligence business to name the world's most brilliant intelligence service, and we'll all give the same answer: Spengler. David P. Goldman's 'Spengler' columns provide more insight than the CIA, MI6, and the Mossad combined." Goldman concealed his identity under the "Spengler" pseudonym until 2009, when he revealed his identity in the Asia Times article, "And Spengler is..." and the First Things article "Confessions of a Coward". Goldman regularly appears as a guest on CNBC's Larry Kudlow Program, where he has been an outspoken critic of Federal Reserve efforts to resuscitate the American economy. He is the author of How Civilizations Die: (And Why Islam is Dying Too) and It's Not the End of the World, It's Just the End of You: The Great Extinction of the Nations.
