Emerging Markets

These are the 10 emerging markets of the future.

 Emerging MarketsA new report from BMI Research has identified the ´10 emerging markets of the future´ ” the countries that are set to become new drivers of economic growth over the next 10 years.

BMI estimates that these countries will cumulatively add $4.3 trillion to global GDP by 2025 ” roughly the equivalent of Japan´s current economy.

In general, manufacturing and construction are the sectors that will drive the economies. BMI reports that new manufacturing hubs are set to emerge in Bangladesh, Myanmar, and Pakistan, and that these countries will see particularly strong growth in exporting manufacturing industries. And construction growth is going to be widespread throughout all the countries ” partly to facilitate increases in urban populations and partly to help develop the manufacturing sector.

Currency Theory

Modern Money Theory and New Currency Theory

 Currency TheoryAbstract
This paper discusses Modern Money Theory (MMT) from the perspective of a New Currency Theory (NCT) as represented by proponents of monetary reform. In the paradigmatic framework of currency teachings versus banking teachings, MMT, in contrast to its self-image as a chartal theory of money, represents banking theory much more than currency teaching. Its understanding of fractional reserve banking and monetary sovereignty is misleadingly incomplete. Thus, NCT's analyses appear to be a more adequate foundation for modern sovereign money

IMF euro Greece

IMF admits disastrous love affair with the euro and apologises for the immolation of Greece

 IMF euro GreeceIn an astonishing admission, the report said its own investigators were unable to obtain key records or penetrate the activities of secretive "ad-hoc task forces". Mrs Lagarde herself is not accused of obstruction.

"Many documents were prepared outside the regular established channels; written documentation on some sensitive matters could not be located. The IEO in some instances has not been able to determine who made certain decisions or what information was available, nor has it been able to assess the relative roles of management and staff," it said.
The report said the whole approach to the eurozone was characterised by "groupthink" and intellectual capture. They had no fall-back plans on how to tackle a systemic crisis in the eurozone “ or how to deal with the politics of a multinational currency union“ because they had ruled out any possibility that it could happen.

"Before the launch of the euro, the IMF´s public statements tended to emphasise the advantages of the common currency," it said. Some staff members warned that the design of the euro was fundamentally flawed but they were overruled

Bitcoin finance

Experts think bitcoin is the future technology of finance

 Bitcoin financeEven if bitcoin fades into obscurity, finance experts believe that the technology behind it will live on and even change how financial services work. According to a study conducted by Swiss non-profit World Economic Forum, the blockchain, which is the public ledger that makes bitcoin transactions possible without a central infrastructure overseeing them, has the potential to "reshape financial services." The forum is known for holding an annual conference that brings business and finance experts together.

Weforum's report says large central banks have already begun looking at how the blockchain can transform the way they move money, especially between countries. It will allow them to do more secure and faster transactions that also cost less than they do today.

Should You Learn To Code To Build A Mobile-first Startup?

 CodingShould non-technical founders learn to code? The answer depends on whether the question is asked within the confines of Silicon Valley or outside it.
Most Silicon Valley pundits will have you believe that you can’t build a software business if you cannot code. In fact, most VCs make it tough on non-technical entrepreneurs that run software businesses, and even tougher for those that don’t have a technical cofounder.

How Talking Too Much Can Hurt You by @RosatoDonna

 CareerWhen you’ve got the floor in a meeting, do you notice people looking at the clock or their phones?

When you’re chatting over the water cooler, do you find yourself chiming in before your colleagues finish their sentences?

Do you typically go off on tangents when you tell a story?

Do people nod blankly and say “uh huh” a lot when you’re speaking?

Do you notice that people at work prefer to communicate with you via email?

You may be an overtalker.

Most people who talk too much don’t realize they do it, says Annie Stevens, managing partner for ClearRock, a leadership development and executive coaching firm. No matter whether it’s fueled by insecurity or overconfidence, however, this quality can be deadly to one’s career—especially these days.

Looking for the ideal job? There's an equation for that

 LaboralYou’re looking for your dream job, and you receive an offer, but how do you know if this one is the one? Maths.

Brian Christian, co-author of Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions has examined the science behind decision making and come up with the answer to when you should stop holding out for a better offer and just commit.

It all comes down to one equation: your best option is the one you find 37% of the way through your search period.

This is ‘optimal stopping’ theory, and it is a formula that can be applied to more than just hunting for your ideal job.

It can also be of use to people on the other side of the table who are hiring new employees. The secretary problem, as shown in the graph below, is a well-known example of the dilemma faced by employers.

DIC-2016 Twitter just lost two more of its senior executives. By @alexeheath

 TwitterTwitter has lost two more of its senior executives as it faces mounting pressure to increase its revenue and grow its user base.

The company's chief technology officer, Adam Messinger, and VP of product, Josh McFarland, both announced that they are leaving the company on Tuesday.

Messinger has been Twitter's CTO since 2013, and joined the company in 2011 from Oracle. McFarland joined Twitter in 2015 through its $532 million acquisition of his ad tech startup TellApart.

Both departures come shortly after longtime Twitter COO Adam Bain abruptly stepped down in early November. Twitter also lost its vice president of ad sales, Richard Alfonsi, to Stripe in early December.

Making decisions

How Elon Musk Uses a Crucial Lesson From Aristotle to Make His Decisions

 Making decisionsHe picked up a little philosophy in the two days before he dropped out of Stanford University from the world’s first great scientist, Aristotle of Lysippus.

It’s called “first principles thinking,” which Musk learned from his very short time as an applied physics Ph.D hopeful, and it deals with solving problems from their foundation rather than by analogy, which most of us fall for.

In an interview with Kevin Rose, Musk explained, “I think it’s important to reason from first principles rather than by analogy.”

“The normal way we conduct our lives is we reason by analogy … [With analogy] we are doing this because it’s like something else that was done, or it is like what other people are doing. [With first principles] you boil things down to the most fundamental truths … and then reason up from there.”

Regarded as the father of science, Aristotle laid the groundwork for measurement and observation, where first principle thinking would start by observing anything from its most basic foundation. Musk reveals that going back to the root of anything “takes a lot more mental energy,” but that’s how all the most groundbreaking discoveries happen — and it’s saved Musk a lot of money in building his companies.

The changing face of business - and the part artificial intelligence has to play

 WEFArtificial Intelligence (AI) may be the single most disruptive technology the world has seen since the Industrial Revolution. Granted, there is a lot of hype out there on AI, along with doomsday headlines and scary movies. But the reality is that it will positively and materially change how we engage with the world around us. It’s going to improve not only how business is done, but the kind of work we do – and unleash new levels of creativity and ingenuity.

In fact, research from Accenture estimates that artificial intelligence could double annual economic growth rates of many developed countries by 2035, transforming work and fostering a new relationship between humans and machines. The report projects that AI technologies in business will boost labor productivity by up to 40 percent. Rather than undermining people, we believe AI will reinforce their role in driving business growth. As AI matures, it will potentially serve as a powerful antidote for the stagnant productivity and shortages in skilled labor of recent decades.
