24 & ready to die | The Economist
 
21:24
Emily is 24 years old and physically healthy. But she wants her doctors to end her life. Subscribe NOW to The Economist: http://econ.st/1Fsu2Vj 24 & ready to die is the tragic case of Emily, a young Belgian woman granted the right to a doctor’s help to end her own life because of her persistent, severe depression. Belgium and the Netherlands are the only countries which permit doctor-assisted dying for those experiencing unbearable mental suffering. Several American states allow doctor-assisted dying for the terminally ill, including, from next year, California. Majorities in 13 of the 15 countries polled by The Economist and IPSOS MORI in June support doctor-assisted dying. The Economist has championed doctor-assisted dying in articles and editorials since the 1990s, including most recently a cover story in June this year. The Economist ran a video advert in London in September and Berlin asking: “Could you live a life like this?” to encourage people to start talking about the right to die. Support for doctor-assisted dying is growing globally. Bills have recently been debated in Britain and Germany, and a ruling in Canada’s Supreme Court means that country will soon have legal doctor-assisted dying too. California’s governor signed an assisted-dying bill into law in October. A recent poll by Ipsos-MORI for The Economist found majorities in support of doctor-assisted dying laws in 13 out of 15 countries surveyed—including the United States, Britain, Australia, Canada and Germany. But only in Belgium and the Netherlands were majorities in favour of allowing doctor-assisted dying in cases of unbearable suffering that is mental, rather than physical. The Economist supports the introduction of legalised doctor-assisted dying around the world. Zanny Minton Beddoes, editor-in-chief of The Economist, says: “For The Economist, the case for allowing doctor-assisted dying relies on personal choice and individual autonomy. Our liberal values and respect for human dignity mean that for this paper, doctor-assisted dying is a cause worth championing.” To watch more visit http://www.economist.com/films Economist Films expresses The Economist’s globally curious outlook in the form of short, mind-stretching documentaries.

English Vocabulary: How to talk about the economy
 
09:40
http://www.engvid.com Let's talk business! Today you'll learn vocabulary that will help you to read and speak about the economy. We will look at common words used to discuss economic matters, such as GDP, stagnation, fiscal, and more. These words and expressions will help you read financial news articles and follow economic reports on television and online. After the lesson, take the quiz and try to practice these words by discussing economic matters in English with your co-workers and friends. Feel free to ask me questions in the comments section on engVid. http://www.engvid.com/english-vocabulary-how-to-talk-about-the-economy/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. Welcome back to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson, we're going to look at business English. We're going to talk about the economy. Now, we're not going to get into too much detail. We're not going to get into economic theories, etc. What we're going to look at is some vocabulary that will help you read financial articles and newspapers, or online, or watch financial broadcasts on TV; CNN, Money Matters, etc., things like that. So, we're going to look at all these words. We're going to start with "GDP" because everything somehow relates to "GDP - gross domestic product". What is this? This is the total value, the total monetary value of goods and services produced within a country. So everything that the country produces from toilet paper to airplanes, and services from massage to heart surgery, all the money that's made from these goods and services together adds up to the GDP. So, when we're talking about GDP, we're going to refer back to this expression when we're talking about some of these other words. So, first, let's look at "fiscal". "Fiscal" basically means anything to do with money, anything to do with financial matters, especially when we're talking about taxes. Okay? So, when... The most common thing you'll hear is "fiscal year". So when we're talking about a company's fiscal year, we're talking about it's the beginning of its tax year to the end of its tax year. In some countries, everybody matches this to January to December; in other countries, you're allowed... Your fiscal year starts when you start your business, and then one year later is the end of your fiscal year. It's easier to match it to the calendar year, but... A "quarter". Now, you're going to always hear about prices, and stocks, and values going up or down over the last quarter or over the last two quarters. What is a "quarter"? It's basically three months. So if you're talking about the first quarter of the year, you're talking about January, February, March. That's your first quarter. Your next three months, second quarter. Four quarters makes one year. "Currency". I think everybody knows this word, but just in case, this is the money that is used in a country or a region. This is the monetary value that is used for exchanges, trades, investments, etc. In Canada, we use the Canadian dollar. In the U.S., they use the American dollar. Euro in Europe, etc. A "budget". A "budget" or "to budget", it can be a noun or a verb, means to make a plan on how to spend a certain amount of money. So, for example, a government has this much money that they need to spend, or they have a plan that they want to spend this much money. Now, they want to spend a million dollars. I'm being very simple, here; I'm not going to get into big numbers. They need to spend a million dollars to provide all the services that they need and to buy all the materials that they need to import, etc. If they are running on a deficit, that means that they need to spend more money than they have. They have to spend on things to bring in or to run the country, but they don't have. So if I need to spend a million dollars but I only make the revenues of the country are only $900,000, then they will run on $100,000 deficit. Okay? "Surplus" is the opposite. "Surplus" is when the government or any company, you don't have to apply this to a government, when you have more money than you need for the budget. So if I need to spend a million dollars over the next year, but I have a million and a half, then I have half a million dollar surplus, which is always a good thing. "Inflation/deflation". "Inflation" is when prices of goods and services go up, but wages stay the same. So, basically, the purchase power of the individual goes down. You have the same amount of money, but you can buy fewer things or you can hire fewer people to do to have services for you. "Deflation" is the opposite. That's when prices go down, and the value of your dollar or your currency goes up. Both situations are not good.

"The economics of 1.5°C climate change" with Prof Simon Dietz
 
01:00:05
The economic case for limiting warming to 1.5°C is unclear, due to manifold uncertainties. However, it cannot be ruled out that the 1.5°C target passes a cost-benefit test. Costs are almost certainly high: the median global carbon price in 1.5°C scenarios implemented by various energy models is more than US$100 per metric ton of CO2 in 2020, for example. Benefits estimates range from much lower than this to much higher. Some of these uncertainties may reduce in the future, raising the question of how to hedge in the near term. Maintaining an option on limiting warming to 1.5°C means targeting it now. Setting off with higher emissions will make 1.5°C unattainable quickly without recourse to expensive large-scale carbon dioxide removal (CDR), or solar radiation management (SRM), which can be cheap but poses ambiguous risks society seems unwilling to take. Carbon pricing could reduce mitigation costs substantially compared with ramping up the current patchwork of regulatory instruments. Nonetheless, a mix of policies is justified and technology-specific approaches may be required. It is particularly important to step up mitigation finance to developing countries, where emissions abatement is relatively cheap. Simon Dietz is an environmental economist with particular interests in climate change and sustainable development. He has published dozens of research articles on a wide range of issues, and he also works with governments, businesses and NGOs on topics of shared interest, such as carbon pricing, insurance and institutional investment. Simon is based at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), where he is Professor of Environmental Policy in the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, and the Department of Geography and Environment. He is also an Oxford Martin Visiting Fellow and Research Associate of the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at Oxford University, a Principal consultant at Vivid Economics, and is co-editor of the Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists.

Close up of Berlusconi''s face on poster 7. Economist publication reading "Basta, Time for Italy to sack Berlusconi" 8. Close up of The Economist publication 9. Close up of Italian newspaper 9, Professor Lawrence Gray looking at a copy of The Economist 10. Cutaway of The Economist 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Professor Lawrence Gray, political analyst "The timing is typical Economist, they always come out with these publications, these articles, and it''s what they have done in the past. I think that it is clearly an attempt to condition the Italian voter, again from the English point of view. I am not sure it is going to be very successful because Italians don''t particularly care for moral or political lessons taught by the English." 12. Italian piazza 13. SOUNDBITE: (Italian) Voxpop: "It is not correct (referring to The Economist''s headline), just before the elections, but I think there is a lot of incorrect behaviour, especially in this election where everyone is fighting, and everyone is saying things they should not say. I guess we can also put up with this kind of behaviour." 14. News stand 15. The Economist publication on news stand 16. Italian flag pan down to police in front of Berlusconi''s residence in Rome STORYLINE Britain''s weekly news publication The Economist launched an attack on Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi in the closing hours of his bid for re-election. Italy''s premier was headed to a rally in Naples on Friday, prior to Sunday''s elections, when The Economist published the headline "BASTA. Time for Italy to sack Berlusconi" alongside a picture of him with an irritated expression on his face. The lead editorial in the latest issue of the magazine criticises Berlusconi for his conflict of interest, noting his ownership of the three main private television channels in Italy, and the series of legal cases against him for everything from false accounting, money laundering and bribing of judges. Its critical approach is nothing new, the Economist has a long-standing anti-Berlusconi position. Five years ago the magazine ran a cover story on him with the headline "Unfit to Lead." When Italy goes to the polls this Sunday and Monday it will choose between Berlusconi''s centre-right coalition and a centre-left coalition led by Romano Prodi. Although the magazine suggests that voters should chose Romano Prodi, they have fallen short of actually endorsing his candidature. In the title to the editorial, the magazine declared, "Italians have a rotten choice to make, but it is time to sack Berlusconi." Political analyst Professor Lawrence Gray said; "The timing is typical Economist, they always come out with these publications, these articles, and it''s what they have done in the past. I think that it is clearly an attempt to condition the Italian voter, again from the English point of view." Italians on the street reacted with some scepticism to The Economist''s headline. One voter noted that he thought it was "incorrect" of The Economist to put out such a cover story on the eve of elections. Some 47 (m) million Italians are eligible to vote as well as some 2.6 (m) million Italians living abroad. Italy''s stagnant economy has figured as a key campaign issue.

This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: The Economist Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= The Economist is an English-language weekly magazine-format newspaper owned by the Economist Group and edited at offices in London. Continuous publication began under its founder, James Wilson, in September 1843. In 2015 its average weekly circulation was a little over 1.5 million, about half of which were sold in the United States. Pearson PLC held a 50% shareholding via The Financial Times Limited until August 2015; at that time Pearson sold their share in the Economist. The Agnelli family's Exor paid £287m to raise their stake from 4.7% to 43.4%, while the Economist paid £182m for the balance of 5.04m shares which will be distributed to current shareholders. Aside from the Agnelli family, smaller shareholders in the company include Cadbury, Rothschild, Schroder, Layton and other family interests as well as a number of staff and former staff shareholders.A board of trustees formally appoints the editor, who cannot be removed without its permission. Although The Economist has a global emphasis and scope, about two-thirds of the 75 staff journalists are based in the London borough of Westminster. For the year to March 2016 the Economist Group declared operating profit of £61m. Previous major shareholders include Pearson PLC.The Economist takes an editorial stance of classical and economic liberalism that supports free trade, globalisation, free immigration, and cultural liberalism (such as supporting legal recognition for same-sex marriage or drug liberalisation). The publication has described itself as "...a product of the Caledonian liberalism of Adam Smith and David Hume". It targets highly educated, cultured readers and claims an audience containing many influential executives and policy-makers. The publication's CEO described this recent global change, which was first noticed in the 1990s and accelerated in the beginning of the 21st century, as a "new age of Mass Intelligence".

In the book, Hall argued that inequalities in wealth and the production of luxuries led to the exploitation of the poor, and their suffering. Hall famously claimed that the exploitation of the poor was so severe that they "retained only the product of one hour's work out of eight".As a remedy for the problems in society, Hall proposed land reform and progressive taxation. His views and economic theory, particularly his views on severe exploitation of the poor, were important to the development of Marxism, and have led many to consider him one of the earliest socialists.

A Neuroscientist and an Economist Explore How Our Brains Seek Out Information
 
03:49
How much is a piece of information worth to you? How much are you willing to pay for today’s news or to discover more about your ancestry? It’s a question that gets to the core of how we learn about the world and make decisions every day: a question that has now brought together the fields of neuroscience and economics. Professor and neuroscientist Jacqueline Gottlieb, a principal investigator at the Zuckerman Institute, and Professor Michael Woodford in Columbia University’s Department of Economics are working together on a project that seeks to understand what motivates us to pay attention to certain pieces of information and invest in acquiring them. They describe the initial results of this work — revealing the diversity of motives that guide human curiosity — in the latest issue of Nature Human Behavior. Neuroscience tells us that there are limits to our attention, says Dr. Gottlieb. Our brains bias us towards certain sources of information by releasing chemicals that reward us for focusing on certain things. Economics, says Dr. Woodford, has traditionally ignored such biases, assuming instead that everyone sees the same information when making decisions. By combining the mathematical models of economics and brain-monitoring techniques of neuroscience, the professors hope to gain greater insights into both of their fields. Their interdisciplinary research could lead to a more sophisticated perspective on questions ranging from how informational choices affect brain diseases to how they shape economic markets.

Principles of economics, translated
 
05:21
"Mankiw's 10 principles of economics, translated for the uninitiated", by Yoram Bauman, http://www.standupeconomist.com . Presented at the AAAS humor session, February 16, 2007. For the record, the talk contains two unattributed quotes ("9 out of 5" is adapted from a line attributed to Paul Samuelson---although apparently he said it about Wall Street indices, not macroeconomists---and "wrong about things" is paraphrased from P.J. O'Rourke's Eat the Rich) and, of course, the Einstein "simple" quote is an intentional misquote. The talk is based on a published article in Annals of Improbable Research (see http://www.improb.com/airchives/paperair/volume9/v9i2/mankiw.html ), which sponsored my talk and to which you should subscribe (http://improb.com/subscribe/ ). In the paper you can see the "constructive example" of how trade can make everyone worse off (or you can just wait 50 years to see what happens with climate change).

The collapse of Venezuela, explained
 
07:31
Venezuela is in chaos. How did we get here? Correction at 1:58: The Supreme Court tried to strip the country’s National Assembly of its powers in March 2017 and not 2016. We regret the error. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Venezuela was once the richest country in Latin America. It has the largest known oil reserves in the world and its democratic government was once praised world wide. But today, Venezuela’s democratic institutions and its economy are in shambles.The country has the highest inflation in the world, making food and medicine inaccessible to most Venezuelans. Over the last four years, its GDP has fallen 35%, which is a sharper drop than the one seen during the Great Depression in the US. The country’s murder rate has surpassed that of the most dangerous cities in the world. These conditions have sparked months of protests against the president, Nicolas Maduro.

An economist’s take on climate change: the Paris agreement and the post-2020 world
 
59:58
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.

DECIPHERED!!! THE ECONOMIST MAGAZINE'S 2017 TRUMP WORLD TAROT COVER DECIPHERED!!! - The M A P - Ep 9
 
41:06
Greetings Alchemists! In this episode of The M.A.P. we explore the recent cover found on The Economist Magazine, wherein a Tarot layout is displayed as predictive of significant events or tides to be encountered under the Trump administration in 2017. Since this was a rather extensive and detailed analysis, I have provided a transcript of the podcast so that you may consult it further over the coming year, should that be your desire. Until then, grab your beverage of preference (given the subject matter a shot of malt whiskey seems appropriate), sit back, and relax as we work through they symbols provided and attempt to divine what those in "The Know" have in store for us in 2017. Enjoy!
