"Priority for more canadian voters. I think the tension has grown polling is showing that climate is one of three. Maybe four top of mind issues for canadians. Kathryn harrison is a professor of political science at the university of british columbia focused on environmental policy. Canada's green party hasn't got a lot of support but harrison says all the major political parties have proposed relatively embellishing climate policies for the first time this election cycle even the conservative party which draws a lot of support from oil producing provinces the conservatives have included some real policy more regulation but. I'm very skeptical. That they would follow through with the level of ambition that it would take to meet their own target. The conservatives proposal is to cut emissions thirty percent by twenty thirty which isn't enough to me candidates commitments under the un climate accord. Proposals from the other. Major parties would get their prime minister. Justin trudeau's liberal party has set a target of forty plus percent. The new democrats smaller party target fifty percent the greens sixty percent climate advocate. Seth klein would like to see more ambition but says the range of plans do show progress. This debate has shifted to the point. That every major party feels they need to present a platform that they hope people will find. Credible chain will be hard practically and politically for any party. Canada's oil and gas actor has made up about five percent of gdp in recent years it's energy intensive work just production not the burning of the fuel represents a quarter of canada's carbon emissions on the campaign trail this month. Prime minister trudeau talked about investing in helping oil dependent regions transition. We will continue to work with workers across the country in the construction sector in the energy industry to transition to pivot to to improve the opportunities for them in their workplaces but also for their kids in their communities. Still in the same remarks. True talked about the oil industry like it's going to be around at least until twenty fifty even note. That's when the paris agreement dictates global emissions need to be brought down to net zero supporters of canada's oil industry. Argue that while oil demand continues better. The last barrels come from canada which tries to limit emissions from production than somewhere else. Trudeau's government argues. The proceeds will fund canada's own clean energy transition again environmental policy professor kathryn harrison standing line That the liberals have used. I think it is becoming more difficult to say. Because global ambitions increasing and because canada zone ambitions increasing ambition will have to transcend any political party for canada to reach targets set for dates. Twenty thirty or twenty fifty. Because it's unlikely one politician or even one party will remain in charge that entire time for the world. I'm jacobs in montreal. God spawned.

"Their bunk account. No matter how much they have on there and only once a week and the queues are like kilometer long. How about your afghan colleagues male or female. Do they feel safe coming to work. While all asking man anti mel stats are coming. Back to work in the office in kabul we may have a who are staying at home because their families are not comfortable but like ninety eight percent are back in the office and we have reopened our field officers in the kabul informal settlements. Meaning where all the it piece are living in the outskirts of the city and are internally displaced persons. We have been able to real ben schools in some areas and there are still areas where taliban is not allowing our female staff to resume work. I'm without our female staff. He refused to open officers. Refused to resume activities. We've heard that. The offices of some international ngos have been broken into and trash and their supplies stolen. How concerned are you about that. Well that is very concerning. However is reassuring the ngo community that these are criminal elements and that they are in process of getting their functions in place. The taliban police are even saying to us that even for them this quick takeover was a surprise that we're expecting a more. Orderly handover so they have needed a few weeks to get sorted things out yesterday. The chief of the taliban police told ngos he was meeting. Got even have repossessed. Some vehicles that criminal elements had stolen and that they realize belong to ngos and they have ngos that missing of equal. Call this number and we will sort it out and return the only two year. So there's mixed messages. You mentioned taliban police. Do you and your staffers interact with taliban officials and footsoldiers on a daily basis. We see the foot soldiers at driving through town. Yes i do drive through town. And i go to and from the office and even go to see locations in kabul where we have services for internally displaced people but yesterday we had a meeting with the chief of the taliban police and the message was we wanted to look after you. We want to make sure your says. Tell us what you need. We want ngos to feed safety. Want to stay under. Never what is the level of need in afghanistan right now and what is able to be met by the few groups that are still on the ground there first of all. I believe that most of the ngos who left will soon return the un has its airbridge up and running and unexpecting a lot of Ngos resuming work in the weeks to come but the needs are staggering. It is a catastrophe. Somebody say that it's on the brink of catastrophe we are full head into it. More than one. Million children are at risk of dying. This winter from starvation eighteen million people are in need of humanitarian assistance. Veep public sector is about to collapse. Who will pay the salaries four public teachers or health workers in clinics and hospitals. These are questions that needs to be answered may needs to be answered fast. The situation is dire enough going afghanistan. What are the most dire needs in terms of humanitarian relief for afghanistan. Right now even now. Money doesn't help because the market is dwindling due to the famine crops. I mean forty percent of the crops is failing due to the drugs. There's not enough food in country needs to come either by airplanes or by land from neighboring countries. If food does not reach afghanistan people are going to stop to desk and in high numbers. In addition in a couple of months the winter will come and their minds degrees in kabul on in the northern part of the country people need shelter. people need blankets. People need winter clothes to themselves and to their children. They need firewood. They need wintry station assistance and they needed before the winter comes astroid. You described the situation in afghanistan as dire. What's an image that kind of lives with you in terms of what the dire situation really looks like every time the snow comes in november december. I travelled out to the cobble informal settlements. Because i then see children running around barefoot or in plastic slippers in slush in frozen water and snow. People are living under a tarpaulin or with makeshift walls made of cloth etcetera. And it's a good reminder for me why. I'm in this line of work and why i continue to work in afghanistan despite the somewhat cumbersome situation i was gonna ask why are you staying put in kabul. It's my duty. It's my job. I was actually out of the country when kabul fell on. I managed to get back on. I have no intention of leaving. The askins behind afghanistan needs says more than ever astronauts. Slayton is in kabul. She's the country director for the norwegian refugee council. Thank you very much for speaking with us. Thank you the small baltic nation. Lithuania doesn't usually receive many asylum seekers last year. Barely one hundred crossover over the country's eastern border to apply for asylum this summer more than four thousand have arrived. European leaders blamed neighboring belarus for orchestrating a refugee crisis in revenge for the eu slapping sanctions on the authoritarian leadership of russian.

On the one hand, there's a concern around clamp down on so called vice stocks in China that's weighing on the Hong Kong market. There's also concern about the spread of the delta variance in China, and we know the reaction function that that then could prompt from Chinese authorities. So there's concern about growth in China. All of that sounds pretty negative, but that rubs up against what's been a fairly solid earnings season. Four European corporate in a number of European companies upgrading their guidance. And even those in the sectors where they're concerned around Chip supply shortage the messages that they want to be able to produce more so there's a lot of positive narratives coming out of the earnings season.

Why Asia Is So Important to Crypto

"Recently wrote a report on asia's crypto landscape. Can you give us a broad overview of wyan. How asia is such an important geography in crypto. Yeah absolutely actually. My background is Traditional finance and i spent maybe about fifteen years Focus on equities in terms of all. The companies are all the countries in asia pacific. So i was always very well. Acquainted with the cultures and also the different politics than macro economic structures of the different countries. There was sometimes what. I take for granted in terms of understanding the market. I find that a lot of my colleagues or a lot of my friends in the us or europe might not necessarily know what's happening in asia. And so i think a couple of interesting pointers is that for example like you know by december last year. Forty two percent of the market cap of the top twenty tokens that actually had a headquarters. Basically was from asia. Think now says also said that forty three percent global transactions are from asia and then also a lot of all a lot of asian companies basically dominate. The future space so ninety. Eight percent of futures is based in asia. I think people don't understand that tether is based in asia. Polkadot has a lot of supporters in asia. And so a lot of tokens might have Yeah a lot of tournaments might see a lot of funding from asian investors in asian companies. Although i think the media mostly picks up you know. Us in europe and so this this report tries to cover some of the stuff that we might miss asia

We Finally Know Exactly How Bad The Pandemic Has Been for Airline Pilots

We Finally Know Exactly How Bad The Pandemic Has Been for Airline Pilots

"We see in plane and pilot magazine. We finally know exactly how bad the pandemic has been for. Airline pilots and the numbers here are pretty staggering and eliminating max indeed. I was really quite stunned to take a look and see. Just how bad things are. I mean we all know that the airlines have been hit disproportionately hard here during the pandemic that know some pilots have been out of work. This was a survey done by goose. Which is a pilot. Recruitment firm not for birds but for a and they found that nearly half of all pilots worldwide. Either looking for work or on furlough which was shocking to me. They said that thirty percent of the people surveyed were out of work and looking and other seventeen percents that they were furloughed awaiting further news and additional. Six percents said they were still employed with their airline. But we're doing non-flying works pretty stunning. Half half the pilots Basically out of work or looking for work in this comes from a survey of two thousand five hundred ninety eight pilots. This survey was open for four weeks just to kind of set. The timeframe in it closed october thirtieth twenty twenty and it was anonymous survey thirty questions and the survey was designed for pilots of all ranks. First officers second officers and cadets in some of the data in this is just really really fascinating and we'll have a link to the survey report which was done in conjunction with flake global. And a you just peruse some of this and find some really really interesting interesting things but By way of demographics of those almost twenty six hundred pilots forty-three percent of the respondents were in europe. Nineteen percent from the middle east and africa eighteen from asia pacific Twelve percent from north. America six percent from south america and two percent from china. So it's pretty Pretty global in the survey touches on things like pilot retention pilot job security employee engagement even Stress mental health wellbeing things like that so Some really really interesting statistics Couple of the ones that i like. Maybe if you guys saw some things that piqued your interest but one of the questions was when do you think aviation will make a full recovery to pre covid levels and not. Surprisingly only ten percent said up to one year the biggest spike was up to two years. Thirty four percent of the pilots thought up to two years but twenty eight percent up to three years and longer than that twelve percent four years. Ten percent five years and six percent said they thought it would never never be the same So that's the pilot's perspective. No one was. Do you think your mental health has been affected by the pandemic and here there is a direct correlation between the age of the pilot and the pursuit pilots that group in In how many of them thought that their mental health had been a acted for those pilots. Fifty five to sixty four years old thirty. Two percent thought their mental health had been affected for pilots forty five to fifty four years old but younger thirty six percent when we go down to thirty five to forty four year olds forty four percent of them thought. Their mental health has affected in the twenty five to thirty four year old group forty-nine percent and pilots under twenty four years old fifty eight percent of them thought their mental health had been affected by the pandemic so. I thought that was a really interesting result. I wasn't totally surprised by the The differences once. You mentioned the difference. I thought okay but it's the younger folks are having a tougher time. Think about someone who's twenty four years old this may be the first In a bad thing that's happened to them in their in their career folks are in their mid fifty s have probably gone through multiple things in the past and probably a better able to to ride through a downturn whereas you know young folks just not have that cushion of You know savings built up to right through. Its doesn't surprise me but still it's a large large number folks nearly six percent under a twenty-four saying mental health. Been impacted the the demographics of the respondents in terms of gender. Was you know the numbers are kind like the same numbers we've seen for a long time. Almost all male four percent female in one percent preferred not to say. I'm not sure why they would prefer not to say in. An anonymous survey but four percent identified themselves as female Which really kind of hope that that number would be coming up. Ron wouldn't when you're looking at programs With youth today. do you see more. young girls. Becoming interested involve is that number higher than four percent. I hope well Here were making a concerted effort to make sure it's higher than four percent Right now we're preparing for Air venture and we've got A program within the air venture program called girl venture We've also got One for adults named Women's sore And between those two we really want to invite women to get more involved and engaged in aviation and so We see a higher than i would say. Four percent level here

That rose is in today and your role as the president of south east asia pacific and south korea at rose rice. Well has been rooted in engineering since we established in eighteen. Eighty four and this expertise has evolved the business to become one of the world's leading industrial technology company that we today and as the president for the region covering southeast asia pacific and south korea. I'm responsible for the regional strategy our external relations and governance of all our operations across the three businesses that we have civil aerospace is one of them manufactures of ever engines for large commercial aircraft on our regional jets and business aviation and we have decades of engineering expertise to take us through life through life. Service and support solutions for customers in the defense were market-leading aero-engines for military transferring control labor's including combat helicopter applications. I'm needles and power systems. Where leading provider of high speed reciprocating engines providing complete propulsion systems distributed energy solutions. So you can say that we. We have a diverse but volume that includes civil defense and power system and it is because w that our activities have tremendous impact on the world today and tomorrow we have always pursued clean safe and competitive solutions and we believe our technology will be fundamental in helping society transition to the low carbon future.

You touch on engine. That paolo many other products across the road strikes businesses. And i believe including aircraft of course and i imagine that you have been collecting analyzing the performance data of your engines for that case and in fact i see from one of your rolls royce presentation that you have been collecting data for some seventy trillion data points across twenty-sixth dimensions on your engines. So i think our listeners will be interested to know how you been. Harnessing that power data to make sense of this of information and into insight and action. And i believe in many ways is supplying the data to a machine learning throughout the life cycle of the engine from the initial stage of designed to manufacturing to maintenance repair.

We partner them up with some of the leading strategic and providers and other people in our industry as mentors and advisors and we run this program that we typically do. We've been doing now for six years as a virtual accelerator but we depend on a lot of big in person events as well so that one february is one of the last ones that we got to do this year in person and we had to do everything else virtually but when incredibly well we selected fifty companies in our main program who were part of the primary toward and then we had another twelve companies on top of that that were just part of pediatric. Track for fifteen companies total that were part of the pediatric program and we had another twenty companies in asia pacific so Running a lot of stuff A lot of programs. And it's literally nonstop. Since i you in bed worry. Having taken a break there's the notifications has been no arrest. I haven't been reorganized and finally get vacation though. I mean it's over right or well. No i Was the first weekend actually kind of rest. A little bit still running that asia-pacific program that runs for another month until it's finals and we saw value competition coming up value word during midtech strategist conference in november. So we had a lot more to do still an. We're opening up applications for mid second beater. But i guess the last thing. I'll say when and we can dig into some more details that we've managed to pull it all off we slough some radical companies. Who just blew us away this year. Not only as they always do with their technology in their teams more passion and the way in which they're coming things being able to do that during a pandemic was kind of clean boggling. At how well these dumpings are executing you know no one is like hanging up their shingle and saying well and to go Go to start a farm or something. During the pandemic everybody is just executing and finding creative ways to do that and some have been accelerated as a result. So it's been tremendous were thrilled. I wish i could say it was time for vacation but i'll get one eventually. That's awesome man. I mean to work through the pandemic and in february i mean none of this pandemic was even in sight. I mean at least for me. I was like we were running. We were having a great time over there. Shaking hands and hugging. It wasn't until right. It was only a couple of weeks later that it's right like looking getting a little wider. What we're staying here and starting to look at each other going to keep doing this stuff you know in person. I remember the very beginning of march. We had another event at ucla and And people were that event. We're gonna look around going like. Is this totally separate. One of our partners didn't come to that event because they said that their corporate headquarters at stop travel and we thought that was really strange. Where like you can't fly from san jose to l. a. This is crazy by a week later. Like i was doing so the big one was when hams cancelled. Yeah oh wow. That was the real.

What Will the World Look Like When Crytpo Is Fully Adopted?

Unconfirmed: Insights and Analysis From the Top Minds in Crypto

07:14 min | 10 months ago

What Will the World Look Like When Crytpo Is Fully Adopted?

"What do you think the world will look like. Once crypto has been adopted. There's there's two sort of visions. I think i don't maybe we can just be honest ourselves. Sometimes i worry about the vision. We have for currency so aware. I started and i have a lot of respect for jeremy in the team at circle. Because back when i was in grad slow boston actually used circle to violate quinlan. So kudos huge you. Jeremy you saved me from my days for buying the clan on craigslist in using fan. So i could do how well yeah. So you obsolete neat stack my my sats. The early days of the coin The i think they're sort of two visions and they're two very different visions the vision. I've always had for bitcoin that i think. Really compelling one is the separation for the first time of money and state. Money has been object of the state since julius caesar stamped his face on a gold coin and i think really the experiment. We're attempting here like the world is no longer defined by physical orders. We live in a very digital world. Anyone could be anyone on. The internet has many different identities many different communities where part of sometimes as our default reality south. Sometimes where donnas you know there are a lot of eggs anonymous individuals citing. We live in this really interesting world that is truly becoming borderless antony. Bitcoin really represents the evolution of money transfer value in that world. But in the same time. I think governments are looking at bitcoin Right now we're living in a world where governments are trying to ban math. They're literally encryption. We done this time and time again. For the last twenty five years since incriptions existed but the advent of central bank digital currencies. In certainly what. We've seen in the asia pacific region in particular the advent of dc p. and Sort of national quote unquote digital currencies. You do have a lot of concerns around the ability for people to have financial privacy. Privacy transactions privacy communications so we have these two very different paths down which we're heading. I don't know if they're gonna coexist. Don't know if it's going to be an ethic collision and i know jeremy also you know than working a lot on uscc which which arguably has replay here. But i think the future of joe currencies in our society is sort of at this. Very interesting impasse. I want bitcoin to exist. Ideally people have the right to privacy that people have the right to sue committee in their transactions. But i think governments certainly do not like that and are advocating now for the antithesis of that which is central bank digital currencies and monetary systems that. Give them complete control the ability to exert financial censorship at every level of society. Driving up tacit. Tiv know early. There's so much there. I i guess i it just as a technologist The to the question of you know. When will this be mainstream or however you wanna call that my view is that you know. Things are mainstream in terms of technology when they disappear when they're invisible people and and when when essentially like people just take take them for granted right and said depending on your age and depending on where you are like. You might take for granted social media. But obviously that wasn't something that existed Wherever x. number of years ago you might take for granted that you have this amazing you know Supercomputer that just like that is reality. That is what the world was but obviously that had changed so at. What point is the use of crypto so ubiquitous and so embedded in so many things that we just take it for granted so were were. We have credited ago on that. But i think we're making really really strong progress. I think when. I also think about that question. I really think about Crypto and blockchain Is is. It's a pretty broad surface area right. You can be narrowly focused and sort of say there's non-sovereign stores value that use of blockchain infrastructure. You know bitcoin cash you know cetera et cetera which i completely agree with melting right. There's this this is this new form of borderless internet money and it will continue to grow and scale. And i'm i'm quite quite optimistic about that. But then there's the the fundamentals of the broader technology right so you know public chain infrastructure as effectively a new operating system layer on the internet. A new set of systems for storing data conducting transactions and executing code. That's what operates systems can help. Do these new operating system layers are very very general purpose in many respects there well suited to what i call fiduciary trust applications but can also be you know i. I was in a hackathon panel with melting the other day and we are looking at someone who built a decentralized messaging application on top of salona. The point being anti-centralized fantasy football fans in so digital games. You know messaging applications all these things on decentralized infrastructure web three cetera. Like that part of this is also a very very important part of this and so and you know something like stable coins like regulated stable coins like a us dc or potentially libra like these. These are also like apps that run on this new operating systems and could be quite popular. And so i think in terms of the question of when does that become mainstream. I think we're really close there. I think in the next twelve to twenty four months many of the most popular digital wallet products in the world that are used that we think of unused like as peer payments. And things like that. They're gonna turn on these protocols they're gonna turn these on and you're going to have you know all of a sudden hundreds of millions of people that can make interoperable payments at each other and that will kind of be in the background. That will be invisible. You'll you'll just you won't be trapped in making payments to people who then mo you'll be able to make payments between van mo and square cash and pay pal and swish in sweden and vips in norway. And you know go around the world to all these different apps. They're all going to speak. These common protocols in i think that's a a mainstream phase in digital currency. That's that's coming. I think ultimately that same number of people who might feel okay like i'm using euros or dollars or whatnot feeling comfortable using bitcoin that will grow to and eventually i would expect billions of people will will wanna use bitcoin to

RCEP: What's the Deal?

"Who has spent much time around. Soldiers will be aware that for the purposes of saving time and door baffling civilians. They communicate to a large extent in three letter acronyms. So an armored fighting vehicle is an a an improvised. Explosive device is an and a three letter. Acronym is itself a t. l. a. There are many more some formal some colloquial some veils for cheerful obscenity if journalists employed a similar vernacular one such t. La would certainly be bb. I to denote a story which is boring but important which brings us. And we think we've just about stuck the landing here to a four letter acronym asset and that seems to be the consensus on pronunciation which is going to catch up a few news. Readers or it could be are kept or chip or recap whichever way you say it. The letters stand for regional comprehensive economic partnership. Stop come back at cetera. Sip is a trade deal all seriously this will only take a few minutes also is a mighty big trade deal indeed arguably the biggest ever don. It includes japan. South korea new zealand and the ten members of asean from tiny brunei to immense indonesia at which the unwieldy asset name does make a certain amount of sense comprehensive regional asian partnership being an obvious non runner. This will seem hilarious in about ten seconds. You'll get that. There is a lot going on with all set as is to be expected from any agreement which fifteen countries many of whom don't get terrifically will have been nearly a decade negotiating but it will be significant given that the signatories of set between them account for nearly a third of global gdp. Some oftens have already estimated. That are sept. Could add two hundred billion dollars to the global economy this decade which given how much of this decade is likely to be spent catching up from this year is no small change. The economic headlines are approximately as follows. Many tariffs on imports. Among member states will be eliminated. Some immediately of his more gradually they will be new unified rules of origin which might encourage companies in asset nations to build more of their supply chains with each other and hopefully do lots of what all free trade agreements is supposed to increase production and opportunity reduced prices on bureaucracy and contribute to a climate of cooperation as opposed to competition which is where our sep looks almost as significant diplomatically. As it does economically it is the first time that china has signed up to a multilateral. Free trade deal. China's premier li ka chiang himself an economist by trade has indeed hailed it as a great victory for multi-lateralism and free trade. Fine talk it may be muttered for the second ranked member of the politburo standing committee of the central political bureau of the communist party of china. And it's at least worth wondering. Is this really where china sees the real value of asset because just as notable is who is in our set is who isn't specifically india and the united states india pulled of the talks last year for fear that eliminating tariffs would threaten indian manufacturers and producers however as the leaders have stressed that the door remains open the us flounced from a different asia pacific trade arrangement in two thousand seventeen. I'm going to issue our notification of intent to withdraw from the trans-pacific partnership a potential disaster for our country. The trans-pacific partnership was one of the first victims of a donald trump tantrum. So there is little doubt about which of assets members will be the dominant partner but it does appear to have been the middle powers of that drove the deal possibly recognizing that it would be preferable for all of them to have china japan and south korea coming to terms rather than blows an optimist a class of pundit who is having a testing kind of you might suggest that this also indicates that china recognizes that submitting to rules-based trade is the next step in its journey to modernity and that it cannot prosper in the long term purely by bullying and menacing a pessimist. Might that this is exactly what china proposes to use this new block for that asset is a means for to keep its friends close and its enemies closer and whether or not that quote is correctly attributable to sun.

The History Of Edo Japan

"The last episode i covered the beginning of the eto period it was known for its 'isolation strict societal classes and hierarchy and order but it started to see unravel beginning the second half of the era and by eighteen hundred internal issues with the merchant class rising an economic stature above the samurai and all the other classes were casting doubts about the practicality in future of the class hierarchy in japan also outside nations were beginning to by the early nineteenth century seek out any gauge japan regarding diplomatic relations and trade this would endanger. It's latest policy in this episode. I'll continue with the period a continuation of those same internal and external pressures issues. It will culminate in the arrival of commodore perry and the eventual fall of the tokugawa shogunate. And i will provide an analysis of these events and compare these events with what was going on in china during the same period internally in japan the issues of samurai impoverishment continued lower lower level samurais increasingly became frustrated that high-ranking government positions went to privileged families with no chance of advancement compounding this were bad crop harvests in the eighteen thirties resulting in famine disease and death japanese officials failed to provide relief leading to some peasant protests and riots outside pressures were also continuing to mount in eighteen forty four king william the second of the netherlands sent a letter to the show gun urging japan to end its isolation policy or it would be ended by force from foreign countries as already stated. The japanese. Were aware of the humiliation of the. The chinese suffered at the hands of the english in the first opium war. Japan had almost immediately after that began. Its modernisation western. Books were translated into japanese. The japanese began studying western military strategies. Those that could afford it sent their sons to foreign schools. Japanese envoys visited foreign countries japan with slowly preparing for the eventual encounter with these western powers about the same time. The americans were becoming more concerned that if they did not act quickly. Other nations particularly european nations would gain a foothold in japan. The us head already been beaten to the punch so to speak by the europeans. In the exploitation of china plus the americans wanted a refuge in japan for its steamships to recall on their way to china. There were also many reports and concerns over the japanese treatment of shipwrecked shipwrecked american sailors and their desire to do something about that. The us got to the point where it wanted to send to japan. An expedition seeking relations and to avoid being left out of the asia pacific region and development and discussion.

Netflix Misses Q3 Subscriber Forecast, Stock Falls

"In the past twelve months shares of Netflix are up more than two hundred percent so. Forgive me for not wringing my hands over the fact that shares of Netflix are down about six percent. This morning third quarter profits came in lower than expected. That said. Weakest. Subscriber growth in four years. That's I don't know. It doesn't seem like something to worry a lot about, but it certainly is noteworthy. Actually, think it's something that's kind of to be expected. So there's something called the pull forward effect, which is there's rapid growth in the first half of the year. So then the dot com steals, the subscribers would have happened in the back half of the year. So they added two point, two, million new subscribers, which is less than the three point three, million predicted. By. In total for the year, they added over twenty six million customers, which is more than they did of all of last year. So through the first nine months of twenty, twenty they've. got a point, one million members and they're on pace to add thirty, four, million users in two, thousand twenty, which will be their strongest year of growth. Aber so even though this quarter is the lowest number. Since two thousand fifteen if you kind of zoom out look at the big picture, they're going to to almost two hundred million customers in total, which if you're going to compare it to Disney sixty point, five, million subscribers who has about thirty million. So it's still by and large the most popular. Streaming site. Did Not get a chance to listen to the conference call. Do you know the extent to which management game guidance on production schedule because that's certainly we certainly seen that in the traditional movie? Industry, of Television as well to a lesser degree, but we've seen a lot of movies just stopped production altogether. Did they give any guidance on their own pipeline? They did. So they finish fifty projects since the initial shutdown and they will release more programs next year in twenty twenty, one minute didn't twenty twenty. They are returning to production mainly in Europe and in Asia not as much. So in the US, they're currently filming season for of Stranger things they're filming red notice which I don't know if that's based on the book by Bill. Browder. But if it is, I'm excited to watch it. They're filming season two of the witcher. So they seem that they are both finishing filming finishing production and filming and re ramping filming outside of the US. One of the things I did know Yeah. The headline is a subscriber growth in four years their subscriber growth in the Asia Pacific region was really strong this last quarter. Yeah, it was the largest contributor to paid membership growth. So it was forty six percent of the global paid net ads. So I think that that's an interesting kind of problem or gift that they have is they now have such a global subscriber base. So you have to see shows that are in English, and then you have to see shows that are in different languages and you have to see show that widely appeal like I don't know if you watched Indian matchmaking but that was an interesting show that appealed to. I think you know I'm not watching a match making show I heard a plus reviews my sister really liked it. But I think that that's an interesting kind of experiment and you see that it was very popular in India but it was also super popular in the US trying to figure out how they can get shows and movies that have that wide appeal while also focusing on those knee shows as well that do really well like the umbrella academy or the Social Dilemma the documentary that came out.

It's a situation where information tech is leading the decline. And really, that goes back to what happened in the U. S session. We had a sizeable adjustment in equity prices, particularly were a tech was concerned, the S and P and the NASDAQ each retreated from record highs. The catalyst was likely. First word from our source is that China is planning a sweeping set of new policies to develop its own domestic semiconductor industry.

"Very much Asia Pacific. Equities are on the up again this morning with the benchmark heading for its highest close since October. That's after stocks strengthened across the globe yesterday following better-than-expected manufacturing data art of the was to just colonies the signs of stabilization off to a rocky few months. Have investors breathing a sigh of relief? Let's bring in Muhammed upper by he is head of Asia trading strategy at CitiGroup global markets, and he joins us from our Hong Kong studio and the good to see you this morning. We've got this joy of manufacturing from China to the US retail sales in the US. We're a little bit more quirky. I started with a ten year government bond markets. Have we seen one of those Damascene moments of where we overprice the dine side, and that's reflected in the move in the bombs. I think the market is certainly breathing a very big sigh of relief that the news hasn't got worse. There was a debate. Remember, this is really just one one number one set of numbers that we're seeing from China maybe slightly distorted from the Chinese New Year effect in various other things as well. But I think certainly it's enough to cause the market to have some sort of relief. Me and the equity market, which is pricing in now. The idea there is no recession happening in the short term the bond market. The continues to remain unsure you're looking this morning. Just that the probability of the next move in in rates by the by the fed and still there's about a thirty or forty percent move that the probability that the next move will actually be a cut in in the USO, basically, no rate hike being priced for the for the US. And that's basically all of you as well. But really this rate hike and cycle. The markets are really telling us is over. We we think that may be a bit of a pullback in bonds. We remain quite bullish on bonds. We do think that eventually US two year. Yields will go down to two oh five. Yields that low though that means that you get evaluation lift with some of the dividend stocks in particular, we put together a chart clients and get this extra perspective GT goal on their terminal a story of those dividend plays coming into focus is that something you're getting on board with as well. Are you looking to rotate into place? Very much. So think of you is that towards the middle of this year yields will go. There is already a very significant hunt for Kerry and hunt for yield that is going on in in in markets. So we are seeing equity implied volatilities being subdued as people are taking advantage of that. And we're starting to see some of the names, especially in Australia in Taiwan. And in Hong Kong, we're paying out significant dividend yields looking quite well bid, the resource sector in Australia in particular for other reasons as well. But it does offer a very attractive yield the one place. We're not seeing a yield a bid coming yet is really in the Chinese banks investors still very warm towards those even though they have been paying out good. Good dividend yields over over five percent. We always gotta make decisions about where we apportion portfolios between Asia, China, Japan and the United States by the earning season. I mean, everybody I think pretty much accepts that the first quarter is going to be tough. But we had a lovely line this morning, apocalypse has been postponed. In other words, we accept that. There will be a rough drop in sales in the first quarter. But then where is this recovery? And the view is that the prophet prognosis gets better as the year goes on do you concur with that? And does not skew the asset allocation to the US. Well, my view is that actually the end of Q E is still premature the rate hikes have been premature. We haven't really reached escape velocity on a global basis. So for example, the what you notice is that in two thousand seven sixteen and seventeen when they were pumping in record amounts of QE the equivalent of six QE ones in that two year period. The economy was growing and inflation was back the movement, you take that away in two thousand eighteen what you find is the reality dawns on the markets again. But there is no inflation and actually sub trend growth. So I think the markets basically became bit too pessimistic about the growth outlook. It's basically sub trend. Inflation continues to remain under pressure, which will lead the bond. Markets to remain supported in that environment. I think that the US equity market will continue to outperform emerging markets, which is probably going to remain rangebound. My view is that if you go away now for three months. Holiday you'll probably find that many of these emerging markets. Probably almost exactly where they are. Right now if not slightly lower. We don't think the dole is going to happen anytime soon. I wanted to pick up on exactly the greenback's lost some of its luster, and we put together another chart at our clients have been pull up this is a story of a fourth quarter. That was quite tough central banks held sixty one point seven percent of allocated currency reserves in the US dollar at the end of December Perry back from a third straight quarter. We now close to five year lows. Are we at an inflection point globally? How exposed are you to the US dole? Well, the dollar is always very key. When you're when you're looking at risk. But I think the point is still this that when you've got over ten trillion dollars of bonds in the world, which are effectively yielding a negative rate when you've got your if you look in the three Germany and Japan also giving you a very low yields negative yields at least out ten years and China, although this bond rebalance is happening. What really a an alternative to the large US bond market. US yields are still remember the fallen, but they're still close to two and a half percent. And so really what this means is that there is no alternative even for Japanese pension funds. What we're seeing is actually the because of the way that the basis traits that actually selling Gaby's and buying US treasuries. So the idea that the dollar will weaken, we think. May take a lot longer than what the market is expecting. So it's likely that people who've rushed into emerging markets may actually run out of patience before that trade actually works. Okay. Let me phrase there. There is no alternative you got to buy the bonds. Mohammed. Thank you very much Mohammed up about it. You stay with us. We've got a lot more to get through still ahead on the show. The.

"For the United States was focused on the Middle East and south West Asia, predominantly Iraq, and Afghanistan and Pakistan to a certain extent. So you know, what was going on in China in in Europe, particularly in the North Atlantic where the Russians are particularly active that was sort of put on the backburner now during the the second Obama administration. You had a lot of talk of the the Asia-Pacific shift, which is you know, what the the previous administration had wanted to do is move away from what we're doing now but move away from the wars in the Middle East to focus on China's growing military presence in the Pacific, namely, the South China Sea that never really got off the ground with the Islamic state kind of, you know, gaining grounding in Syria and kind of what that's become now. However, you know, with with those four sort of winding down as much as they can. Never really wind down.

"Henry Kissinger distinguished professor at Johns Hopkins University, and a Bloomberg opinion columnist has an answer that may surprise you. And he's here to tell us more. So who is the most important and disruptive leader in the world today. Well, I think most Americans would probably instinctively say that the answer is Donald Trump or whatever Putin. But you could also make the case that the real answer is China Xi Jinping since taking power about six years ago. He has had a profound influence on China's internal governance and also on how China interacts with the world and under his leadership that we've gone from thinking about China as a potential responsible day colder and the US led global order to a country that seems set to rival the United States for influence for primacy, not just in the Asia Pacific. Perhaps globally how much personal power does? He have compared to other Chinese leaders. He has more personal power than any Chinese leader since Mao. After a mouse rule, and some of the catastrophes that came with it like the great leap forward, the next generation of Chinese leaders enshrined collective leadership model in which you would have. Essentially, a leader who was first among equals, but was still largely responsible to a group of of several high ranking official than the most important decisions were essentially made on a collective consensus basis. She has done two things he has first constricted room for open debate within the Chinese political system, and so censorship, repression of political the sense have have increased and he's all simultaneously centralized decision making power in his own person. And so he has succeeded in putting himself on a par with earlier Chinese leaders like now like Deng Xiaoping and really enshrining himself as a throwback to an earlier era of more personalized Chinese rule. Now as far as relations with other countries. Let's talk the military well in some ways, she's rain has been a continuation of of longer term trends in the sense that China has been undertaking. A massive military build-up over the course of a little bit more than two decades now to give it the ability to project power and its region and beyond and to hold it risk the app that the United States would use to project power into the western Pacific. But what's changed? More recently is that China has become increasingly global in its military outlook, and so Chinese forces have deployed as far away as the Arctic in the Indian Ocean. There have been efforts to establish overseas bases within the first Chinese overseas base in Djibouti. There are rumors that others are in train and China has been acquiring access to ports and other logistical facilities. That could help help would expand its military footprint over time. And so what's happened over the past five or six years American strategists have had to go from thinking about China as a country that would only be a regional wretch American influence to a country that sometime in the future. A couple of decades down the line might can. Contest American global military influence as well. President Trump says that he has a great relationship with g is g testing the president. The long tradition of Chinese leaders testing new American presidents. There's almost always some sort of crisis in US China relations around the time a new president comes into office because Chinese leaders do like to take the measure of new US president. I think the Chinese are a little bit baffled by the Trump administration in the sense that President Trump gives every indication that he would like to cut a deal with the Chinese, but he doesn't really care about them traditional American security interests in the Asia Pacific independence that he appears to have a decent personal relationship with with Xi Jinping. But at the same time, the actual policies that have come out of this administration, particularly on trade have been more hard line than anything we've seen in a number of years. And so I think the Chinese made the bet early on that they could use the relationship between she and Trump to get better terms in these negotiations, but but so far they actually have. Have been able to make that work. Do you see he caving to Trump at some point in the trade negotiations or just remaining firm? I don't think the Chinese will cave. I think what will happen is that at some point a deal of some sort will be struck, but it will be more superficial than the Chinese really are quite good negotiating tactic of appearing to give concessions that will satisfy the other side. I think that the China's strategy is to come to some sort of agreement that will allow Trump to personally claimed victory in the negotiations without altering the structural dynamics relationship tell thanks so much. That's how brands the Henry Kissinger distinguished professor at Johns Hopkins University, and a Bloomberg opinion columnist twenty nine thousand nine is set to be a consequential year for the heads of some of the most iconic American companies from digesting mega-mergers to managing me related scandals lucky for us, Bloomberg opinion. Columnist. Tara Lachapelle has scammed the Astra logical stars. And is here to highlight. Bloomberg opinions third annual compilation of CEO horoscopes. So I'm a Taurus. So let's start with the Taurus, Randal, Stevenson, chairman and CEO of AT and T what's ahead in twenty thousand nine with a new video streaming service. Randall Stevenson is interesting because they have a really difficult year ahead of AT and T, but it's also kind of exciting too. So I think as we look ahead. It's gonna come down to what happens with AT and T new streaming app. It's going to be a three tiered service that tries to compete with net flicks. And this other service that Disney is launching and they're in a difficult situation because they just completed the Time Warner acquisition from last year that was about one hundred and two billion dollars the direct TV deal that they did a few years ago. I hasn't gone very well. So they've spent a lot of money with not a whole lot to show for it yet and investors have a lot of doubt in the strategy. So I think they want to see this vision finally come together. And whether it can and if they can't and if there's some unforeseen setbacks or economic disruptions along the way there is concerned that the dividend which is beloved by telecommunication shareholders could be the sort of sacrificial lamb, so his heart skips a little bit tricky. We'll have to see what happens next year. We'll let since we're talking streaming. Let's go over to net flicks. That's retail earnings chairman and CEO of net flicks. And he's a libra a libra, which tend to be people pleasers, and that actually makes a lot of sense because. He has done in disrupting the streaming world is giving consumers just about everything. They want a pretty affordable price and without advertisements. So they've really spoiled us. And what that means is it's made it kind of impossible for these other companies to offer what Netflix does because doing so would be unprofitable for them. So it's come to a point where not flexed has attracted all these users and everyone really likes to service, but the test is going to be in two thousand nineteen as these rival companies Disney AT and T start launching their own services to users defects and go to those or do they stay with net flicks. So let's then go to the CEO of Disney. Bob Iger who's an Aquarius, he's an Aquarius, which is the visionary of zodiac. I'm told. And it makes a lot of sense too. Because you know, by biker has done a lot of really smart acquisitions over the years. I mean, there's a reason that whenever his retirement gets pushed back investors cheer. But I think now with this FOX deal the size of the transaction, and this sort of uncertainty around what is it going to mean for the Disney empire for his succession and the streaming strategy. It's less clear, what has vision is in this case. And I think people really want to see him show where is he setting the company up for when he is ready to retire. So once a year that really seems to fit his sign is Elon Musk CEO of tesla because cancers can be a bit impulsive. And that's certainly true. And in case, I think this year, you know, it's going to be another year that is anything. But uneventful, you know, there's a lot that Tusla needs to prove they're going to have these lower spec model three cars coming out. And you know, there's the question that my colleague Liam dining on the Bloomberg opinion team has written about is, you know, an equity raise is that something you must should be looking toward again, just because of where the stock valuation is. And you know, obviously, they need money to go at the strategy. So we'll see hopefully, he gets into fewer Twitter fights issues with the SEC. Eventful in that way. But you know, he's really fitting with his side. And I think it's gonna be an exciting year. What about Mary Barra who is the chairman and CEO of General Motors, and is a Capricorn. So copper coins are known to be pragmatic, and you know, it makes a lot of this case because we saw Mary Barra come under a lot of criticism from President Trump and others because of her decision to close some plants in the US and Canada as they start to kind of wean down their line of cars because Americans just aren't buying as many sedans anymore. They're looking to pick up trucks SUV's, they're more profitable. And also GM know looking at competition from Tusla, and where the industry is heading they really need to start investing in electric vehicles with an eye towards Thomas vehicles, and to do that they need to start saving money and tightening their purse strings, and I think, you know, this was a really prudent step toward that does savings. They get from these decisions probably aren't enough on their own. So there's going to have to be more. And the future is not dependent on this outdated image of GM as a. Carmaker they need to think about the electric vehicle future. And that means for the US and China around the world. Speaking of electric, we'll go from GM to GE, Larry Culpepper chairman and CEO of GE who's a Pisces Larry cope, you know, obviously, a very difficult situation that GE's bending all year, and as we head into twenty nineteen I think that you know, what my colleague Brooks has written as she's covered him is that.

"However, if you look at developing countries, particularly the emerging markets, they're hugely benefited from the trading with with other countries, major countries and the power to have, you know, poor people have been lifted out of power t in mass numbers. So that's why I think in those countries the resistance to free trade is much lower and the willingness of improving an upgrading free trade deals with other countries is much higher that include China.

Just like, Dr lamb has already pointed out and also some other countries would move further to have higher standards in higher degree of integration. But overall, I think from this meeting what we can see is that not only China and Alcyone countries, but other countries in this in the region and also from the recent visit from Shinzo Ave. We've already mentioned that before from Japan and also European countries will saying this all over the world.

"Let's look now at some of the stories making headlines across Asia, my guest in the studio whose research fellow at the Asia Pacific program at the think tank Chatham house, let's begin with the midterm elections in the US because we talked a lot about it at the beginning of the program. There's been a lot of work in China trying to figure out what the results mean for China's specifically for the trade will well, I think the Chinese leadership have perhaps over deep prepared a worst to come. Because what we're facing this narrow now is even if we have Democrats which take as a majority for the house and overall of the both parties, so this seems to be bipartisan consensus, this is the opportunity for President Trump to contend China's unstoppable rise and also given a fact that to cut worse doesn't really have much control over foreign policies for his and for people who are really in charge. I don't Trump himself and the magnificent seven boys of Rome him in Toronto street policy so day. No matter how hard China tried to watch out this time election. I think the result was going to be the same US Tono Twitter will continue so. Yeah. The for for all of the speculation actually this because the control of foreign policy restaurants in the White House. Exactly, exactly. Meanwhile, though, China's vice president turned up at an economic form in Singapore. That's been interpreted as a as a message to to Washington. Well, that's a very significant olive branch offered by the Chinese side won't Sean is a figure most likely a very much liked their popular among Wall Street bankers and also senior policy makers in previous US administration, and he's counting as currently the number of eighth the most powerful men in China, and he's presence in this new economic forum realism. How show how important is the US China relations in the years to come. But on the other hand is also show. Some kind of reassurance Xi Jinping Steve are much hope the the room for negotiation will open between Beijing and Washington DC.

Don't get yourself into trouble into confrontations Russian because the difference between you and the Russian hooligans. It's the Russian hooligans trading. The gym six hundred guy on you, go to the pub, and so you will come off really badly. These guys get military training. And there was a fair how this was going to go did. But I think the stakes were so high and the Russians need that the world was watching. Them. They were able to to rain all of any. Well, Russia somehow project is soft power in here..

"That's reports by our security correspondent Gordon Carreira now to China, where hundreds of people have taken to the streets to protest. Against the demolition of a new mosque. Asia Pacific editor. Michael Bristow told me more. This is taking place in a region of China, cold Ning show, which is home to the way Muslim minority. And over the last couple of years, they've rebuilt a mosque is quite grand. It's got minarets and domes who's completed last year and everything seems to be fine. Then they received an order from the local government to say that it was going to be demolished. They had to demolish by Friday, and if they didn't demolish it by Friday and the authorities would move in local people saw this notice and decided to essentially camp outside the most to prevent the abilities getting anywhere near it. So there's been a standoff negotiations are taking place in the the reports that perhaps the demolition is being delayed, but there's been no clear conclusion to that yet. How unusual are protests on the scale in China will there lots of religious protests across China? I think the difficulty with this particular case. Is that the thirty say they wanted to knock it down because it hadn't really got the permission that it ought to have, but others the same. Well, you saw it being built. Why on earth did you not say something earlier? I think what's happened here is that the thirties have seen the scale and the style of a Middle Eastern style and got slight slightly would what they try to do is allow religion, but keep a foreign influences out of religion. And so the style might have with you thought is we see in eastern China when when religious communities have put a grand churches with crosses on the Trump that seems to annoy the authorities as much as the fact that these communities exist in the first place. I think the style is a big reason for the dispute. In fact, there have been suggestions are the authorities say, look, if you just tone it down a little bit will allow you the most to continue standing how to the Chinese authorities in general, feel about Islam, quite wary, really, particularly developments across the rest of the world. They fear that Graddick Liz extreme. Some will will slip across its borders and add fuel to a lot of donning independence movement serve. People want more autonomy, particularly in the west of China, weather in lots of Muslim minority. So the very, very wary. And that's why they want to try and keep a, not a leading religion but control it. So for example, there's prescriptions on how long you can wear your beard or whether you can wear reveal or trying to stop school children, not eating during Ramadan to really controlling how people react and how people treat religion and to try to make it more less extreme. So that's probably why they're quite wary about this particular case when they see the grand scale and the style of this mosque, Michael Bristow. Every weekend. You can hear a review of the weeks may new stories and why they matter. That's in the world.

"If we, if we compare photos from now to photos from from about a month ago, yes, it's clear that there has been increased activity at the site trucks going in and out containers going in and out that kind of thing. This simply underlines really just sort of tensions that are that are going on as to whether North Korea is amplifying its nuclear activity, or whether it's actually starting to really dial down its program. So last week we had evidence that they had dismantled a key satellite missile launching facility. But then again, we've also seen that they've made improvements at their only known nuclear reactor. So it's a little bit of both. And of course they never actually made any concrete commitments at that summit. So this could be part of ongoing negotiations. Absolutely. North Korea's, not breaking any promises. It hasn't said it. It's in fact it's followed through on the promises that it that it did make it did promise to to stop missile testing, and we see that it's it's dismantled a key launching facility, and also it's it's promised to return the remains of of US soldiers and it's gone through on that. So it could be accused of violating the spirit of the agreement, but it hasn't actually made any promises to immediately shut down all of its nuclear program. So it hasn't done anything wrong. I think really what today's stories shows us is that there's unhappiness within the US military over what the Trump administration it. It's dealings with North Korea. I think it's key that today's source was a military source, giving information to the Washington Post. And to Reuters in the past, we've really relied on commercial satellite imagery to show us what's going on at those sources. So if the military sources are telling the Washington Post that they think that work is underway on one or two intercontinental ballistic missiles, that really shows that there's a bit of of unhappiness within the US military Celia Hatano, Asia Pacific editor.
