Liberal promises, liberal delusions - Emergence of new global powers | Danny Quah | TEDxNTU
Our world runs on rules of engagement drawn from past success. This holds for nations dealing with other nations, the same way it does for people engaging with one another and for citizens with their governments. What happens, however, when those who won previously no longer win now? Are we looking into a new set of global powers soon in the future who are not a part of the western world? Danny Quah is Li Ka Shing Professor of Economics at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. Quah served as LSE’s Head of Department for Economics (2006-2009), and Council Member on Malaysia’s National Economic Advisory Council (2009-2011). Quah’s research interests include income inequality, economic growth, and international economic relations. His current long-term research project is on an economic approach to world order, with focus on global power shift and the rise of the east, and models of global power relations. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

The Economic Impact of Chronic Disease
The Economic Impact of Chronic Disease: The Case for Prevention, Early Detection and Better Management Moderator Ross DeVol, Chief Research Officer, Milken Institute Speakers Nancy Brown, CEO, American Heart Association Neal Kaufman, Chief Medical Officer, Canary Health; Adjunct Professor of Medicine and Public Health, University of California, Los Angeles Kristen Miranda, Senior Vice President, Strategic Partnerships and Innovation, Blue Shield of California Hugh Waters, Health Economist and Associate Professor, University of North Carolina Schools of Nursing and Public Health Otis Webb Brawley, Chief Medical and Scientific Officer, Executive Vice President, American Cancer Society The growing burden of chronic disease is a costly threat to patients, their families and the economy. One in two adult Americans lives with at least one chronic condition such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease or dementia. Further, one in three live with two or more. The medical costs are staggering, but the drag on long-term economic growth and productivity losses associated with absenteeism and "presenteeism" for patients and informal caregivers are many times greater. Many chronic diseases are preventable. How much could we save in treatment costs and economic loss by modifying unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and drug abuse? How about the obesity epidemic? How much could we save by simply eating better and exercising more? Can the movement toward a value-based care delivery system--in which payers pay providers based not on procedures--but on health and cost-related outcomes, make a difference?

🇦🇺 Australia's Binge-drinking Culture | Unquenchable Thirst | 101 East
Drinking alcohol has long been a part of Australian culture. But today, the country is suffering huge social and economic costs from its love for the drink. A recent report estimated that the tangible cost for alcohol misuse is $25bn a year, including medical expenses, lost wages and productivity. Ten million Australians experience negative effects from other people's drinking, and 70,000 fall victim to alcohol-related assaults. With an increasing number of young people binge-drinking, children as young as 10 are seeking treatment for alcohol addiction. Police and hospital authorities are urging Australians to sober up but face formidable challenges from a powerful alcohol industry and an entrenched drinking culture. Despite new laws to curb risky drinking behaviour, anti-alcohol campaigners are fighting for stronger restrictions on the industry; and for people to change drinking habits, starting at home. 101 East explores the real cost of alcohol in Australia.

🇨🇳 China in the Middle East: Behind Xi's economic charm offensive | Counting the Cost
China, the world's second-largest consumer of crude, has stepped up its investment in the oil-rich Middle East with a pledge of more than $23bn in loans and millions more in aid. President Xi Jinping also wants talks on free trade areas and is putting forward an "oil and gas plus" investment model to representatives of 21 Arab nations at a forum in Beijing. He believes it's a model that can create jobs and helps safeguard China's future energy requirements. Xi told Arab leaders that China would like to form a strategic partnership to become "the keeper of peace and stability in the Middle East ... and good friends that learn from each other." The Middle East plays a vital role in the billion-dollar One Belt One Road Initiative, a megaproject that aims to link people in Asia, Africa and Europe via an ultramodern trade route. It is a reinvention of the ancient Silk Road for the modern age. Middle East countries currently provide more than half of China's crude oil imports and China is the largest trading partner with the region. Its goal is to double its Middle East trade to $600bn by 2020. So what is behind Xi's latest economic charm offensive in the Middle East? "This is part of a long-term plan of China to secure its resources for the future," says Reuben Mondejar, professor for Asian initiatives at the IESE Business School at University of Navarra, Barcelona. "Oil is very important, energy resources for China will be more and more crucial in the coming 10 years, 20 years, 30 years. So they have already invested in other places like Africa and South America for other resources. But for the oil the Middle East is the primary area, and the platform that they are conveniently using now is the Belt and Road." Mondejar believes that "because of the current situation with the trade war and all of this isolationism, protectionism ... China needs friends. And this is good timing to make friends by announcing $23bn in economic largesse." But according to Mondejar, an economic partnership with the "Middle East is more problematic than [with] South America, for example. The Middle East is probably the most volatile region in the world at the moment, so China is stepping into a very difficult area." Also on this episode of Counting the Cost: Ethiopia-Eritrea peace: We examine how the economic landscape in the Horn of Africa is changing as a new era of peace looms. Mohammed Adow reports from Addis Ababa on the state of Ethiopia's economy. And Charles Robertson, chief economist at Renaissance Capital, looks at the challenges that lie ahead. From quantum computing to 3D printing: We look at the world's best innovators in 2018 and what it means if you live in a country that didn't make the top 10. Francis Gurry, director general of the World Intellectual Property Organization, discusses the economics of innovation. Safe or cancer causing?

Breast Cancer Patient Arrested for Protesting TPP: "This is Price Gouging at the Cost of Lives"
The United States and 11 other Pacific Rim nations reached an agreement Monday on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the largest regional trade accord in history. The agreement has been negotiated for eight years in secret and will encompass 40 percent of the global economy. Vermont senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders issued a statement calling TPP “disastrous” and vowed to fight it in Congress. One sticking point on the TPP had been the so-called death sentence clause, extending drug company monopolies on medicines. The United States and drug companies had pressed for longer monopolies on new biotech drugs, while multiple countries opposed the push, saying it could deny life-saving medicines to patients who cannot afford high prices. The compromise reportedly includes monopolies of between five and eight years. Last week in Atlanta, Zahara Heckscher, a cancer patient, disrupted TPP negotiations and was arrested as she demanded access to the secret text to see whether it includes a "death sentence clause." Heckscher joins us to talk about her arrest and why she says “it would actually condemn women to death.” Democracynow.org - Democracy Now!, is an independent global news hour that airs weekdays on 1,300+ TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

Those in the industry say that Trump is to blame, and global surveys of attitudes towards the United States appear to confirm that information. If Trump is serious about creating jobs in the US, the best thing he could do is resign from office, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.

STUDY: Antimicrobial Resistance Deadlier Than Cancer
Scientists in Britain are sounding the alarm on a potential public health crisis. They say by 2050, antimicrobial resistance could be more deadly than cancer. John Iadarola, Kim Horcher (Nerd Alert), and Cara Santa Maria, hosts of The Young Turks discuss. Are you worried about antimicrobial resistance? Let us know in the comments below. Read more here: http://www.theguardian.com/society/2016/apr/14/antimicrobial-resistance-greater-threat-cancer-2050-george-osborne?CMP=twt_gu “Antimicrobial resistance to antibiotics will present a greater danger to humankind than cancer by the middle of the century unless world leaders agree international action to tackle the threat, according to George Osborne. The British chancellor will tell a panel of experts at an IMF meeting in Washington that 10 million people a year could die across the world by 2050 – more than the number of people lost to cancer every year – without radical action. Osborne will warn of an enormous economic cost, which could cut global GDP by 3.5%, a cumulative cost of $100bn (£70bn). The chancellor will say: “Unless we take global action, antimicrobial resistance will become an even greater threat to mankind than cancer currently is.” *** Download audio and video of the full two hour show on-demand + the members-only post game show by becoming a member at http://www.tytnetwork.com/join/.

Nuclear Energy Explained: Risk or Opportunity
Please Read Below For More Information Anything with the word nuclear next to it usually comes with a fair bit of misunderstanding. Hopefully this video demystifies the process of how nuclear fuels are turned into electricity and how we can use them in combination with renewables in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the effects on the climate that come with high levels of them. Of course, there are many things that have been left out this video as nuclear energy, just as with any other source, has many different factors that need to be taken into account when making decisions. In order to fully understand the situation and make decisions, I highly recommend that you do some research of your own on the topic, rather than simply base your opinion on a four-minute YouTube video. It should also be noted that this video has been made from the perspective of the United States in general. Every area on Earth has different natural resources and environments that determine what works best there.

Investing in NCDs prevention and control saves lives and money
Countries can reduce the staggering burden of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), and save and generate resources for health and other services, by investing in measures to prevent and treat conditions like heart and lung disease, cancer and diabetes. The UN Interagency Task Force on NCDs, co-led by WHO and UNDP, is conducting investment cases in countries to demonstrate the massive costs associated with NCDs and cost-effective measures that can be taken to promote health and reduce human suffering and economic losses from these diseases.

Monsanto Cancer Milk: FOX NEWS Kills Story and Fires Reporters!
http://www.HealthWars.co - Exposing the global corrupt and dangerous 'system' regarding our health! FOX NEWS Reporters (Reporters Steve Wilson & Jane Akre) uncover that most of the Milk in the USA, and across some parts of the world is unfit to drink due to Monsanto Corporation's POSILAC®, which has been proven to be a cancer-causing growth hormone (known in short as "BGH" "BST" or "rBGH"), but they were fired for trying to tell people the truth. (Important note: After a long court battle, the Court dismissed the whistle blowers protection for the reporters because the Court stated that there was no law, to force that the NEWS state the truth! FACT! Going on to say the NEWS was no different than other TV shows/reality shows!!) But the FDA has turned a blind eye once again! If you consumed or fed regular milk to your family today (8/21/08), there is more than a 90% chance that it was from a cow injected with BGH (Bovine somatotropin developed by using recombinant DNA technology). You could be killing or harming your child every time you pour them a glass of milk, the same as pouring them a glass of slow acting poison. Please take action to ensure our children's safety, for they can not protect themselves. What first alarmed farmers was the massive amount of pus in the milk, but Monsanto and the FDA still had no concerns by stating that the pus was not harmful to be ingested by consumers! If you have little children, at least feed them certified BGH free Milk, Organic Milk or Organic/BGM free milk equivalent like Organic soy milk. - FAIR USE NOTICE: These pages/video may contain copyrighted (© ) material the use of which has not always been specifically authorized by the copyright owner.

Global Economic Outlook Still Glum Even With Cheaper Oil: IMF
A sharp drop in oil prices and a stronger U.S. economy probably won't be enough to brighten the prospects for global economic growth this year, the head of the International Monetary Fund said on Thursday. IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said cheaper oil would help consumption across much of the world, but that the United States would likely be the only major economy this year to buck a trend of weakness in investment and consumption. "A shot in the arm (from lower oil prices) is good, but if the global economy is weak on its knees, it's not going to help," Lagarde said in a speech. http://news.yahoo.com/global-economic-outlook-still-glum-even-cheaper-oil-162431366--business.html http://www.wochit.com

Trump’s Climate Change Denial To Cost Us $100 Trillion
Republicans love to cite the costs of addressing climate change as a major reason to ignore the problem. But the reality is that the costs of ignoring the problem are staggering. According to new research, the climate change denial from the Trump administration could potentially cost us about $100 trillion due to the collapse of the carbon bubble and natural disasters. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – http://www.thedailybeast.com/trumps-climate-change-denial-could-cost-us-dollar100-trillion?source=twitter&via=desktop Ring of Fire needs your help!

LIKE and SHARE this video or leave a comment to help direct attention to the stories that matter. And SUBSCRIBE to stay connected with Ring of Fire's video content! Among the very few Republicans in this country who actually accept that climate change is happening and that human beings are making it worse, they tell us that we still can't act on it because it's just going to cost too darn much money. There's nothing we can do about it because that's a big cost, and we don't want corporations to have to pay it. We don't want taxpayers to have to foot the bill to keep this country safe from rising sea levels and monster storms that are coming at an alarming rate. No. Well, guess what, Republicans? A new study has come out and it said that the cost of Donald Trump's climate change denial ... His refusal to do anything about the problem ... Is going to end up costing us about $100 trillion, and that total $100 trillion is going to come from several different areas. The first and most obvious is from direct damage caused by climate related events, such as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Hurricane Jose is still kicking around out there in the Atlantic ocean, and we have no idea what that one's going to do, where it's going go to go, or if it's even going to make landfall. But things like that cost money. The wildfires in the west right now, those are going to cost federal dollars. We have to fix it. We have to negate it. We have to prevent it, and we have to stop it, more importantly. So that's where a large chunk of the money is going to come from. But the second part mentioned in a new Daily Beast article is something that very few people have discussed, and that is the carbon bubble. In case you're not familiar with it, basically what that is, what a bubble is is when the price of a good grossly exceeds its actual market value, which is what's happening right now around the globe with fossil fuels. Eventually that bubble bursts. Doesn't seem like such a big deal. The price goes down, right? Well, when you consider the fact that one third of global assets are invested in fossil fuel companies, fossil fuel stocks, that bubble amounts to worldwide economic devastation with close to one third of the entire wealth of the planet completely wiped out overnight. A lot of billionaires suddenly become broke. Millionaires lose everything. Fossil fuel companies shut their doors, and while, yeah, for the most part that doesn't matter to most of us, we need fossil fuel companies shut down. I have no sympathy for millionaires and billionaires who have been coddled by our government for too long. It will have obvious ripple effects throughout the global economy, sending countless people, hundreds of millions most likely, into a deep depression. The reason this is even happening is again ... Goes back to Donald Trump's climate change denial and his refusal to allow the federal government to fully invest in renewable energy, and away from fossil fuels. Trump has made it clear that he wants to double down on fossil fuels here in the United States. He wants to revamp the coal industry and open up new coal mines, even though nobody around the planet is buying coal anymore. The renewable energy sector here in the United States is growing faster than any other energy sector in the world, and yet Trump doesn't want to invest in it. Republicans don't want to invest in it. They think it's a waste of time, effort, and money. Well, you know what's going to be a waste of money? When you cost us $100 trillion because you refused to take the advice of scientists and experts basically because you refused to listen to people who are smarter than you. Because you're so damn arrogant and smug that you can't stand the thought that somebody out there knows more than you do.

Stanford Health Policy Forum: Controlling the Cost of Healthcare
The United States health care system is a $3 trillion enterprise, the largest in the developed world. Yet Americans often experience more severe access and quality problems, and spend much more for the same procedures and medications, than patients in other countries. Projections of the future cost of health care are unsustainable, yet many well-intended cost-control efforts have been ineffective. This forum features two renowned experts who will discuss the causes of and potential solutions to the extraordinary cost of American health care. Physician, journalist and Stanford alum Elisabeth Rosenthal has drawn national attention to the issue through her widely praised “Paying Till It Hurts” series in the New York Times. She will be joined by Professor Doug Owens, the director of Stanford’s Center for Health Policy and an expert in health care cost-effectiveness research.

Panel 1: Innovative Models Addressing the Evolving Challenges in Cancer Research and Care
Research progress in recent years comes at a time of great social and economic turbulence, when the population is aging, cancer is becoming more prevalent, and healthcare costs are rising. At the same time, changes within the cancer ecosystem are dramatically challenging the status quo; new technologies such as personalized medicine, changing delivery models, the business environment, and patient engagement have important implications for the way cancer is treated. This panel explores the changing ecosystem and emerging models of cancer care and research and the implications for policymakers and the cancer community as they work to build and sustain progress against cancer. Speakers: Ramsey Baghdadi (Editor, The RPM Report) [moderator], Laura Esserman, M.D., M.B.A. (Professor of Surgery and Radiology, University of California, San Francisco; Director, Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center; Co-Leader, Breast Oncology Program, UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center), Kathy Giusti, M.B.A. (Founder and CEO, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and Multiple Myeloma Research Consortium), J.

How China's Pollution Became A National Emergency (2012)
Cancer Villages (2012): This report reveals shocking impact the toxic waste has on health of Chinese rural population. With the huge amounts of waste accumulated in the country, Chinese authorities struggle to find a place for toxic waste, leaving significant proportion of the population to die from cancer. For similar stories, see: China's Pollution Busters - China https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OR8WInWv5eQ Black River - China https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgPfOmv8Lm4 The Heavy Toll of China's Economic Modernization https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQaiJxK-qZY Subscribe to journeyman for daily uploads: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures For downloads and more information visit: https://www.journeyman.tv/film/5527/cancer-villages Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/journeymanpictures Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/JourneymanVOD https://twitter.com/JourneymanNews Follow us on Instagram: https://instagram.com/journeymanpictures The Chinese government claims it's making serious efforts to clean up pollution. But as this horrifying report shows, much of their 'success' has involved simply moving their toxic industries out of sight. "It's risky, but we have no other choice: We only have this river," Wu Zhuliang tell us from his remote farm in South Western China. For Wu and his family their reliance on the river, which runs yellow with pollution, has had terrible consequences. They buried his son just over a month ago. He had been diagnosed with two types of cancer, Leukaemia and Thymoma, and had been in so much pain he said to his mother, "open the window and I'll jump out". The water from Wu's river was found to have levels of chromium, a known carcinogen, "200 times higher than the national standard". Ma Tianjie from Greenpeace tells us it's so toxic that, "simply touching the water, it could make your skin itchy. It's a very, very serious problem." All across rural China the same stories abound. The government is cleaning up the cities, but often the most toxic industries are simply moved to rural areas where regulations are lax. Chinese farmers are now four times more likely to die from liver cancer than the global average. "The government is trying to find a way to get rid of this huge pile of historically accumulated waste but they are struggling."

Remembering Bob Chapman: Defender of Life
It is with great sadness that we learned today of the passing of Bob Chapman, a true patriot and a frequent guest on the Alex Jones Show whose insight on the global economy was second to none. We knew that Bob had been ill for some time and this is why his media appearances were curtailed, although it is noteworthy that even as recently as just a few days ago, Bob was still writing articles for his powerhouse financial newsletter The International Forecaster. This shows the dedication and commitment that Bob provided his readers in trying to guide Americans through uncertain economic times. Bob's fantastic research will leave a gaping hole in the iron curtain of globalist lies. He was a true economic infowarrior -- but most of all his warm, friendly and engaging personality will be our greatest loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bob's family and friends at this difficult time. Robert "Bob" John Chapman, age 76, of Winter Haven, FL (formally of Mexico) died Monday, June 4, 2012 due to pancreatic cancer. He was born October 16, 1935 in Boston, MA the son of John Chapman and Ruth Donley Chapman. Bob was a veteran of the US Army, a writer of a news letter discussing finances and economics and a regular radio commentator discussing politics as well as economics and finances. Most of his working life he served as a stock broker. Bob is survived by his wife, of 47 years, Judith "Judy" Dabrowski Chapman, son: Robert Michael Chapman, daughter: Jenifer Gillotti and her husband Matt, sisters: Dorothy Trecker and Joan Lotz and 4 grandchildren. Committal services are Wednesday, June 6, 2012 at 1:00pm at Glen Abbey Memorial Gardens, Auburndale, FL. http://www.infowars.com/in-memory-bob-chapman-passes-away/ by Paul Joseph Watson http://obits.dignitymemorial.com/dignity-memorial/obituary.aspx?n=Robert-Chapman&lc=4345&pid=157941281&mid=5127734&locale=en_US http://www.prisonplanet.tv/ http://www.infowars.com/
