Brazil's Perspective on the Global Economy
After emerging from the 2008 financial crisis relatively unscathed, Brazil's inevitable entrance into the club of major global powers is increasingly accepted. Stewart M. Patrick, senior fellow and director of the International Institutions and Global Governance program at the Council on Foreign Relations, and Carlos Simonsen Leal of the Brazilian Getulio Vargas Foundation discuss Brazil's perspective on global finance and international security. Simonsen says: 1. "Every sensible Brazilian" is worried about the actions of the U.S. Federal Reserve and European Central Bank. Brazil, having suffered through hyperinflation, believes their injection of liquidity into markets is "dangerous." 2. The exchange rates of the Chinese renminbi and the overvaluation of the real relative to the dollar are sources of concern for Brazil. "We are not protectionist at heart," argues Simonsen, "but if everyone is playing a game where they don't mind about liquidity and they want to devalue their currencies, we are not going to risk inflation." 3. Brazil is opening many new embassies and consulates. It is motivated not only by commercial diplomacy (cultivating broader markets for Brazilian exports), but also by a desire to have a benign influence on relations among countries. "After all, Brazil is a country that hasn't had a war in 150 years. Not many countries can say that." 4. Brazil is a strong supporter of democracy, and has many common interests with democracies. "We'd like to see democracy everywhere," says Simonsen. 5. Brazilians are divided about joining the United Nations Security Council. Opponents worry that it may be too costly, or that it's too early--or perhaps that if the time comes for Brazil to join the body, it will be because the Security Council is no longer powerful. For now, the Group of Twenty's elevation to the premier forum for global economic coordination has satisfied some Brazilian aspirations to flex its muscles around the world.

The Economics Behind the Second Hillary Clinton - Donald Trump Debate Explained in One Minute
Be sure to check out the video about the first Clinton - Trump debate before watching this one if you haven't by now, as I didn't want to waste time and only included NEW arguments/topics in today's video. The second debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump didn't start very well because they've discussed tabloid-ish topics rather than economics/policy. However, as the debate progressed, both candidates ended up telling us a thing or two about their economic perspective. Let's find out what the second Clinton - Trump debate put on the table in terms of economics arguments! Please like, comment and subscribe if you've enjoyed the video.

The Economics of Money, Banking, and Financial Markets: U.S. Finance (2008)
Frederic Stanley "Rick" Mishkin (born January 11, 1951) is an American economist and professor at the Columbia Business School. He was a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System from 2006 to 2008. Mishkin was born in New York City to Sidney Mishkin (b. 1913, d. 1991) and Jeanne Silverstein. His late father endowed the Sidney Mishkin Gallery at Baruch College of the City University of New York. He attended Fieldston School and received a B.S. (1973) and Ph.D. (1976), both in economics, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1999, he received an honorary professorship from the People's (Renmin) University of China. He is married to Sally Hammond, a landscape designer. They have a son, Matthew, and a daughter, Laura. Mishkin has been a full professor at Columbia Business School since 1983. He held the A. Barton Hepburn Professorship of Economics from 1991 to 1999, when he was appointed Alfred Lerner Professor of Banking and Financial Institutions. He was also a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research (1980 to 2006) and a senior fellow at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's Center for Banking Research (2003 to 2006). Dr. Mishkin was also a professor at the University of Chicago (1976-1983), a visiting professor at Northwestern University (1982-1983), and visiting professor at Princeton University (1990-1991).[2] From 1994 to 1997 Mishkin was Executive Vice President and Director of Research at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and an Associate Economist of the Federal Open Market Committee of the Federal Reserve System. Dr. Mishkin was the editor of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's Economic Policy Review and later served on that journal's editorial board. From 1997 to 2006, he also was an academic consultant to and served on the Economic Advisory Panel of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Mishkin has been an academic consultant to the Board of Governors and a visiting scholar at the Board's Division of International Finance.[2] Mishkin has been a consultant to the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the International Monetary Fund, as well as to numerous central banks throughout the world. He was also a member of the International Advisory Board to the Financial Supervisory Service of South Korea and an adviser to the Institute for Monetary and Economic Research at the Bank of Korea.[2] In 2006 Mishkin co-authored a report called Financial Stability in Iceland.[3] The report maintained that Iceland's economic fundamentals were strong. The report was commissioned by the Icelandic Chamber of Commerce in response to critical coverage of the Icelandic economy and certain Icelandic companies in the international business media.[2] Mishkin was paid $124,000 to co-author the report.[4] Two and a half years later, Iceland experienced a spectacular financial collapse. According to the documentary film Inside Job, the title of the report was changed to Financial Instability in Iceland on Mishkin's curriculum vitae (CV). Mishkin's CV was later corrected to list the report with its original title.[5] Mishkin wrote a note published on October 6, 2010 at the Financial Times' blog [6] explaining his participation in the documentary Inside Job. The director of Inside Job, Charles Ferguson, responded to Mishkin's note at the same blog.[7] Mishkin was confirmed as a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve on September 5, 2006 to fill an unexpired term ending January 31, 2014.[2] On May 28, 2008, he submitted his resignation from the Board of Governors, effective August 31, 2008, in order to revise his textbook and resume his teaching duties at Columbia Business School. Mishkin's research focuses on monetary policy and its impact on financial markets and the aggregate economy. He is the author of more than fifteen books and has published numerous articles in professional journals and books. Mishkin has served on the editorial board of the American Economic Review and has been an associate editor at the Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, the Journal of Applied Econometrics, and the Journal of Economic Perspectives. He is currently an associate editor (member of the editorial board) at the Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, Macroeconomics and Monetary Economics Abstracts, Journal of International Money and Finance, International Finance, and Finance India.[9] Mishkin is the author of the textbook Economics of Money, Banking, and Financial Markets. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederic_Mishkin

Racism: In Business or Government? Seven Years Later
Seven years ago, I showed that, while businesses were easily shown to have equal representation among the races, that's seldom the case with government. I decided to redo the video with up-to-date statistics. Things haven't changed much. I also demonstrate how the Progressive era was born out of racism and eugenics, and how they haven't changed their policies in that regard, just the rhetoric used to sell them to the people.

"JOSS" an art intervention at the "Cultures of Economics", Berlin 2010
A three-part event series by the German Federal Cultural Foundation in cooperation with the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich. http://epub.ub.uni-muenchen.de/12118/1/index.html In light of the current financial crisis, it has become more urgent than ever before to change and improve the way we do business. Economic practice is also a form of cultural practice -- and one of particular interest. How has the relationship between economics and culture evolved historically? How does economic practice function in other contemporary cultures? And most importantly, what kind of economic world can and should we strive for in the future? These are some of the questions which leading economists, scholars and cultural artists discussed at the event series "Cultures of Economics" held on three days in May and June 2010. The artist Karina Smigla-Bobinski has developed a changing installation for each conference in the event series. Her work plays on the motif of "joss paper" which is burned at traditional Chinese ancestor worship ceremonies and New Year celebrations. Originally used as paper money, many people nowadays use joss paper to make life-size papier-mâché models of Western brand-name products. The artist has acquired copies of Western consumer goods from the Asian market and will present them here in a new context. The film curator Florian Wüst will present three short film programmes, each of which is based on the theme of the corresponding conference. The programme, comprised of historical and contemporary experimental, documentary, advertising and corporate promotional films, contrasts the thematic content of the conferences from an analytical or artistic-ironic perspective. The film programmes blend both the past and present, and fiction and reality, as they examine the economic reconstruction of post-war Europe, the industrial automation processes of the 20th century, changing ethical standards among managers, global labour conditions and the vision of a carbon-free future. The first conference "Insights -- Marvellous Markets" investigated the facets of changing economic forms. The second event "Shifting Perspectives -- Economics in Spite of Ourselves" illustrated the relationship between economy and culture. The third conference "New Vistas -- Desire to Win!" encouraged participants to develop utopias for a new culture of economics. 1) Insights -- Marvellous Markets Economic historians differentiate between ancient and modern views of economic activity. Since the end of the Middle Ages, business has become an increasingly integral part of our way of life. This event examined the cultural conditions of current economic forms and their socio-historic transformations. 2) Shifting Perspectives -- Economics in Spite of Ourselves Most of us agree that the economy plays a dominant role in almost every area of life. What exactly is the relationship between culture and economics? To what degree do economic factors influence us, and how do religion, politics and human images influence economic forms? This event focused on the interaction between capitalism and cultural ways of life. 3) New Vistas -- Desire to Win! If we have indeed come to a crossroads today, then we should venture beyond analysis and set our sights on innovative forms and cultures of economics. What might a viable and sustainable global economic system look like in the future? Do we need a change of paradigm in order to reflect on and shape the future? This event aimed to counter the widespread perplexity with utopian possibilities.

By car, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf region's largest economy and the world's largest oil producter, is less than an hour’s drive away via the 25-Kilometer King Fahad Causeway; and Riyadh, its business hub, is a four hour drive. Bahrain is the hub of Gulf Air, which has the largest regional network in the Gulf. From our world-class Bahrain International Airport, there are daily flights to major GCC cities. Kuwait, Riyadh, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Muscat are less than an hour flight time away and Qatar is just 25-minute flight time away. In addition, following the opening of the Khalifa Bin Salman Port in April 2009, Bahrain is becoming a major regional trans-shipment centre. The port is operated by one of the largest post operators in the world: APM Terminals. LIBERAL BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT Legal Framework We are committed to maintaining the region’s most liberal business environment, with no corporate income tax, no presonal income tax, no wealth tax on capital gain, no withholding tax, few indirect taxes e.g. 10% municipal tax on tents, and free repatriation of capital, profits or dividends. We are also the only country in the region that has no 'free zone' restrictions as the whole of Bahrain is considered a free zone. We are also the only country in the region that is offering 100% foreign ownership of business assets and real estate in most sectors. Additionally, the Bahrain Chamber of Dispute Resolution (in partnership with the American Arbitration Association) provides commercial and governmental users contracting in the Gulf and beyond with solutions for rapid and effective resolution of economic, financial and investment disputes. Bahrain has also introduced supportive new visa policies (find more here). These policies are an important development that places Bahrain among the countries with the most flexible visa policies in the region, and which will provide easier and quicker access for businesses with operations in Bahrain as well as helping to attract more tourists to the Kingdom. Unlike any other Gulf country, Bahrain has a fully liberalised telecommunications sector. As a result, Bahrain is ranked the 18th freest economy worldwide, and the freest economy in the MENA region, by 2015 Index of Economic Freedom published by The Wall Street Journal and The Heritage Foundation. TRACK RECORD OF PIONEERING Track Record Bahrain has a track record as a modern international business economy stretching back several decades. It has been a regional pioneer, with a constant drive for further imporvements. It was the first in the Gulf region: Cost Competitive The cost of doing business in Bahrain is relatively low, approx. 40% lower than Dubai and Qatar*. Basic costs such as rents for offices and industrial land are lower than elsewhere in the region. The combination of subsidies and privatization in the utilities sectors, mean that electricity, gas and water costs are highly competitive. And with low living costs, wages are also highly competitive. Educated and Skilled local workforce Our workforce is bi-lingual, highly skilled and educated workforce at costs competitive with other countries in the GCC region. This means you can minimise spending on expatriate packages and build a long-term, sustainable local workforce. Additionally, backed by Tamkeen's continued support of human resources development in all sectors, the quality of Bahrain's workforce is one of the best in the region. Tamkeen provides salary subsidies, training and financing grants.
My Finance Research
ZACH DE GREGORIO, CPA www.WolvesAndFinance.com In this video I talk about my finance research. There is a paradox in business today that deals with financial equations. Finance is based on a simple economic idea that the best business decisions are made by evaluating different alternatives and selecting the option that generates the highest utility. This is the definition of selfishness, because it is one person selecting options with the best outcome for themselves. This is not to say selfishness is bad, it just is how Finance works. This creates a paradox, because we know that selfish decisions do not always create the best economic outcomes. That is why leadership classes teach things like ethics, integrity, corporate governance, community service, etc. An example of this is the famous economics example the "Tragedy of the Commons." This deals with situations with limited resources like grazing rights or fishing rights. This is an example where the selfish decision would be the wrong business decision because it results in the worst economic outcome. The problem is that the entire global financial system is based on financial equations that rely on selfishness. Now there is nothing wrong with the global financial system or financial equations. But a paradox does exist. I believe there is a missing financial equation, that resolves the paradox of selfishness. The problem with financial equations is they describe economic transactions from the perspective of one person. The reality is that every transaction occurs with at least two different people. The new equation looks at a transaction from two perspectives instead of just one. The great thing about this approach is you don't have to change any of the existing equations. You are simply overlaying an equation on top. This is important because we all exist within a social network of relationships. Transactions are occurring between these relationships. If financial equations better represent the complexity of multiple perspectives within your social network, you will get better results, which enables you to make better business decisions, which results in better financial outcomes for everyone. I have found the missing equation. I call it the "Theory of Credit Markets." I have written a summary in my book "On Wolves and Finance." I wrote this book because I believe this equation can have a positive impact on the financial world. Neither Zach De Gregorio or Wolves and Finance Inc. shall be liable for any damages related to information in this video. It is recommended you contact a CPA in your area for business advice.

Occupy Chicago Bites the "Invisible Hand" of Market Economics - Occupy the AEA
Chicago Police ordered Occupy to move the table - w/"Rahm-en noodle" cooker. Volunteers are seen keeping the table in motion during the hour and a half demonstration. Concurrent with these demonstrations, the American Economics Association issued this press release at their Chicago meeting. PRESS RELEASE January 5, 2012 American Economic Association Adopts Extensions to Principles for Author Disclosure of Conflict of Interest At its meeting today, the Executive Committee of the American Economic Association adopted extensions to its principles for authors' disclosures of potential conflicts of interest in the AEA's publications. The added principles are: (1) Every submitted article should state the sources of financial support for the particular research it describes. If none, that fact should be stated. (2) Each author of a submitted article should identify each interested party from whom he or she has received significant financial support, summing to at least $10,000 in the past three years, in the form of consultant fees, retainers, grants and the like. The disclosure requirement also includes in-kind support, such as providing access to data. If the support in question comes with a non-disclosure obligation, that fact should be stated, along with as much information as the obligation permits. If there are no such sources of funds, that fact should be stated explicitly. An "interested" party is any individual, group, or organization that has a financial, ideological, or political stake related to the article. (3) Each author should disclose any paid or unpaid positions as officer, director, or board member of relevant non-profit advocacy organizations or profit-making entities. A "relevant" organization is one whose policy positions, goals, or financial interests relate to the article. (4) The disclosures required above apply to any close relative or partner of any author. (5) Each author must disclose if another party had the right to review the paper prior to its circulation. (6) For published articles, information on relevant potential conflicts of interest will be made available to the public. (7) The AEA urges its members and other economists to apply the above principles in other publications: scholarly journals, op-ed pieces, newspaper and magazine columns, radio and television commentaries, as well as in testimony before federal and state legislative committees and other agencies. About the American Economic Association The American Economic Association (AEA) encourages economic research, issues publications on economic subjects, and encourages freedom of economic discussion. With more than 17,000 members, the Association publishes the American Economic Review (AER), Journal of Economic Literature (JEL), Journal of Economic Perspectives (JEP), and the American Economic Journals: Applied Economics, Economic Policy, Macroeconomics, and Microeconomics.

An economist’s take on climate change: the Paris agreement and the post-2020 world
What is environmental economics? Is it just a contradiction in terms, or is it much more than that? Harvard Kennedy School Professor Robert Stavins explains that the causes of environmental problems are economic, and the consequences of environmental problems have important economic dimensions. Therefore, an economic perspective is essential for a full understanding of environmental threats, and can be exceptionally helpful for the design of solutions—public policies—that will be effective, economically sensible, and politically pragmatic. Such economic thinking is particularly important for the formulation of effective, sensible, and politically feasible climate change policies. The scientific nature of the problem leads to the economic dimensions of the problem, which in turn leads to the global geopolitics of climate change—underscoring the necessity of international cooperation to address this great challenge. In this talk, Stavins provided an economic perspective as he assessed the Paris Agreement, reached in December of 2015. He reviewed the previous 20 years of climate negotiations in order to place the Paris Agreement in its proper context. Drawing on research carried out by the Harvard Project on Climate Agreements, he provided a detailed assessment of the new approach now being taken, looking both at the significant accomplishments of the Agreement, as well as the key challenges that remain. Particular attention was given to the potential role of carbon pricing at the regional (EU), national, and sub-national levels, and the importance of international linkage among heterogeneous policies. Stavins concluded with an examination of the institutional path ahead, both within the United Nations and outside of it. This talk was presented on May 5, 2016 as part of the IHS Markit Seminar Series. About the speaker: Robert Stavins is the Albert Pratt Professor of Business and Government at the Harvard Kennedy School; Director of the Harvard Environmental Economics Program; and Director of the Harvard Project on Climate Agreements. He is a University Fellow at Resources for the Future; Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research; elected Fellow at the Association of Environmental and Resource Economics; Member of the Board of Directors at Resources for the Future; and Editor of the Journal of Wine Economics. He was Chairman of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Environmental Economics Advisory Board. He was a lead author of the Second and Third Assessment Reports, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; and coordinating lead author of the Fifth Assessment Report. His research has examined diverse areas of environmental economics and policy, and appeared in more than a hundred articles in academic journals and popular periodicals, plus a dozen books. He holds a B.A. in philosophy from Northwestern University, an M.S. in agricultural economics from Cornell, and a Ph.D. in economics from Harvard. ___ The MIT Energy Initiative is MIT’s hub for energy research, education, and outreach.

Corruption in India: When Preaching Piety is not Enough
http://southasia.berkeley.edu/ Everyone is exercised about the pervasive corruption in India, but different people take different approaches to understanding and tackling it. There is the 'moralist' approach: unless and until the moral values of people change, very little can be done. There is the 'fatalist' approach: things are so rotten, nothing can be done at this stage. The economist usually takes an intermediate approach: how to tweak the system of incentives and punishments to reduce corruption. The lecture will start with some conceptual and definitional issues, and then go on to discuss the feasibility and desirability of the various policies suggested (including those by the recent vigorous anti-corruption movement in India). About the Speaker Pranab Bardhan has been a Professor at Berkeley since 1977, and currently is Professor of Graduate School at the Department of Economics. Educated in Presidency College, Kolkata and Cambridge University, England, he had been on the faculty of MIT, Delhi School of Economics, and Indian Statistical Institute, before joining Berkeley. He has been Visiting Professor/ Fellow at London School of Economics, Trinity College, Cambridge, St Catherine's College, Oxford, and University of Siena, Italy. He has done theoretical and field studies research on rural institutions in poor countries, on political economy of development policies, and on international trade and globalization. A part of his work is in the interdisciplinary area of economics, political science, and social anthropology. Bardhan has been on the editorial board of a number of economics journals, including The American Economic Review (1978–81), the Journal of Economic Perspectives (1989–94), the International Economic Review (Associate Editor, 1971–1985), and the Journal of Development Economics (Chief Editor, 1985 to 2003). He won a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1981 and the Mohalanobis Gold Medal of the Indian Econometric Society in 1980. He is the author of 12 books, more than 120 journal articles, and the editor of 12 other books.
