WFH From Barbados
"Global tourism as you might expect, has been way down this year the number of people going overseas on vacation declined by a massive sixty, five percent in the first half of the air. But this hit was especially bad for Barbados the Caribbean island nation has built its economy around tourism, and normally this is a really great business more than a million tourists typically visit. Barbados. And they're all these businesses that depend on these tourist hotels and restaurants and local farms that supply the restaurants and all of these people count on the tourism sector. It makes about a third of Barbados's GDP as people started to halt their plans for trips to places like Barbados those jobs and businesses, they took a huge hit. So the country's Prime Minister Mia Motley. She had an idea and I spoke to UC skeet about this. He's the US director at the organization that promotes tourism to Barbados Prime Minister Recognize that we have an opportunity to welcome these individuals who are working. Remotely to come to Barbados enjoy all that the Allen has to offer and stole be able to work. So what it did is it allowed us to look beyond short-term visitor and create lungs. The visitor is on the island and the government developed a special new visa twelve months long, and they're just a few conditions you have to work for your employer back home ending at least fifty thousand dollars a year that is, you know you're not getting a job in Barbados also, you pay two thousand dollars application fee and you need your own health insurance which travel insurance can typically cover. Application is approved Bam. You can sit up let up in a hammock overlooking the Caribbean on horseback. Emiko horseback take your pick and you know probably not very surprisingly daring after having seen this ad over two thousand people like, Sean. Have applied for the welcome stamp visa and it doesn't sound like a ton but using explained why this is actually a really important economic boost, they have to find a place to live. They have to eat this hurtling going to participate in a lot of the attractions and activities in addition to that. Then no become because I can guarantee you want to come into the welcome stamping Barbados they're not gonNA WANNA leave. So they're also become a part of the voice that tells their friends and families at that. You must visit Barbados and I think that then has even longer term benefits and I. Think that's certainly a win win. But of course, this question comes up in my head, right like, could it really be this easy I? mean if it is maybe the entire population of the world is going to end up in the Caribbean. But to check this out, we went to talk to Tim Burgess. He's the CO founder of an international workforce company called Shield Jimbo he's working internationally is not always so simple. There's there's a whole lot of compliance and I guess I. Sort of administrative issues that people don't think about in this context. Tim says, there are two main obstacles to international working from home. So first of all, if you're going for a long length of time like at least six months, you have to start thinking about taxes. If you're for example going to Mexico you might become tax resident in Mexico, your employment say hold on now where liable for having employees Mexico, and of course, this is not just income tax right? Example, Hanshin State health insurance. Yeah. All the different components of social security a few moved from the US. To Franz the employees accost goes from about fifteen percent on top of the salary to forty seven to fifty percent on top of the summer. So it's not as easy as just going to a we work in Paris. It's a very gray area. Barbados got around this particular snag. They said, you do not need to pay taxes in Barbados with this particular visa just keep paying your taxes and social security to home country but Tim. Raises a second issue, which is if you'll say working for an American company but want to work overseas the company you work for start to need to comply with your new countries, regulations and labor laws like say, maybe you'll be forced to take the minimum twenty four vacation days required by Jim. Laurie. If you relate to Berlin, which would be sad. Yeah. I mean that would be a struggle, but I would be up for tackling that. So Barbados, really turned this gray area into a very simple and clear invitation to remote worker. They saw this. And so Darian you know we started talking about this and we were wondering like, is this the wave of the future? I really hope and my hope is that people take it up. It would be a really wonderful initiative and a great model that people could follow and a lot of other countries have realize there is a huge opportunity here Estonia has launched its own visa. So has Bermuda and so Shaun the business intelligence analyst from Charlotte she's a tastes case company said, yes, and to visa was approved and the horses in hammocks wait exactly excited I I couldn't believe it. I was like Oh my God he's actually going to happen. I'm excited to Sean paid her two thousand dollars visa fee, and she now has her flights booked for just a couple of weeks from now what are you looking forward to most about? Barbados the food. The food tasting. Some new flavors there flying fish is like their. Go to national dish it's something called flying fish, which I have no idea

"For the first time will also be recording this for video on our Youtube Channel so today we're here to talk about Crowell food an extreme file is a microbe that can survive in extreme conditions one star up in Chicago has found a way of turning these microbes rapa creatures into an edible protein part of a growing trend towards a microbial revolution in Food and agriculture could microbes hold the key to feeding a growing relation here with me in the studio to discuss this is Emiko Tarazona commodities correspondent and Clive Cookson science editor thanks for joining today Emiko to start with tell us a bit about this company and what it is trying to do so sustainable biproduct is a start up in the US yes and it's turning and micro that discovered in yellowstone national park into protein so they are going to use precision fermentation and they again A to turn this protein into alternative dairy and meat products like burgers and microbial base cheese wow has it garnered much first from investor's overall the search for alternative proteins is such a hot topic in Food and agriculture these days and comes as increasing income uh-huh in developing countries and when populations become more rich they moved from carbohydrates to prestige products I meet but people can't continue easing me because of the environmental is also health concerns as well so we've had the plant based meat products impossible Burger and beyond meat and the search is on for alternative sources of protein among entrepreneurs and scientists and so yes investors are we interested sustainable by products is raised she three million early this year from companies including France's Danone and Archer Daniels Midland which is an agricultural trade we've got some really serious money behind them what to these products actually tastes like have you tried any yourself when you talk about protein means you'll have a protein which is a source of the product by the vehicle for the taste so I think the idea there is to reduce the taste of the channel whatever you using it sauce itself like pre protein which is used in beyond meat you don't want it tastes like peas yeah so you want the protein to be pures possible with Mike I have not tasted was actually not on the market so I have not tasted volcanic microbial burgers but the other uses with proteins is as food ingredient to enhance the taste of a certain product or change the way the product tastes for instance impossible foods I uses a protein called him which is made from soy and that is made from precision fermentation and it adds the meaty taste gene. The bugah wow so how optimistic are you I mean is this pine sky or do you think this is genuinely changing the way that we wing to source proteins in our food well I didn't think it's Pine Sky Tool because you already have corn for instance that is more not not C. O. R. A. But exactly due to you O. R. N. and that is made from a micro protein which is a sort of fungus and that's been around forever clive you know better than me in Qu'une dates back to the nineteen eighties and it's a good thing to think of anyone has headcorn it is as you said a vehicle for taste quarter is growing out of single celled fungus which you can define `as Microbe F- Initiative Mike Grove is somewhat stretchy incubators any organism that you can't see with the naked eye as the individual cells and you have to onto microscope to identify them that's so interesting I mean microbe seem to be having a bit of a moment recently why have they come into the spotlight now I guess spotlight might be the wrong where maybe under the telescope from yes what's the wider scientific picture here well when it comes to food one of the most important changes as of the twenty first century in in nutrition and even I would say in medicine is understanding that the billions of microbes the bacteria that live in our what's play a gigantic role in our health not just how we digest food that's the most important thing but even welby being psychologically the microbes within our body of vital and therefore there's a big and growing industry you're trying to produce microbes not say much as food but to populate guts with friendly bacteria so that's a very big growth area Another is that might cribs used to ferment foods of being extended a lot everything from Kim Chae to sauerkraut route to the molds are cheeses to bear in wine they depend on microbes one sort or another and so using microbes to produce protein I mean could this be scaled up used worldwide I mean are there inhibiting factors will I think we have to remember uh-huh like all new foods microbial food stamp grow on thin air they will need a lot of input of water nutrients at that try so from the environmental point of view that are not going to be completely benign now they're probably going to be more sustainable and growing card which spends a lot of its energy wondering around fields and belching and burping and emitting methane which is a very powerful greenhouse gas but I think those environmental questions need to be answered and they haven't yet been answered by the new foods companies that are making not only microbial foods CACO's talking about earlier but also sell based meat and fish products web rather than growing a cow will catching a fish you'll grow the proteins and the muscle the fibers hopefully trying to capture the texture and taste in the lab and where does this fit into other types of new food technologies I think they're going to be seen alongside these other cell taste foods a lot of progress is being made in taking for example stem cells from cowes Castle and getting them to develop essentially and to meet and if you combine that with Three D. Printing you can get something that's good texture I mean that's one possibility abass meat but I guess this whole microbial fungus bacterial activity I mean how will consume is really react to it is the uh-huh because it's cruel to animals and I didn't think cruelty to microbes is going to enter the picture remains to be seen sustainable but biproduct CEO has told me that he wants is to get a product out into the market either on a trial basis or onto the shelves at least in about eighteen months in the US so it'll be interesting to see what sort of marketing strategy he takes a certified next Winter Christmas twenty twenty we could be having microbial something on the shelf test smoke it I think probably not in London yeah yeah as a final question I wanted to ask you both do you think there's an argument that time and money would be better spent encouraging food and agricultural offices that are more sustainable rather than creating new products that sort of enable everyone to keep consuming in the same way I think that's a really interesting question but I suspect that the horses kind of left the stable that consumers want convenient food that they crave and also the newly rid sh developing country population they also want that as well they expect that and on the other hand you'd companies and fast food companies won't all that so can we continue killing life is to have diversity I think from a sustainability and health point of view giving consumers as rich and diverse mixture of foods as

That might be a little bit of surprise to anyone who didn't listen to the opening go on on we're at college in richmond indiana where dan and stewart i met as we leads to tiny. Little guys was two two years less tiny now. I believe the story. Is that dan you were the president of the nerd frat and stewart. You're the president of the party frat and i wasn't the president so much as like the guy that kept chained in the basement and pulled out only for special events.

Farming and climate change
"Growing focus on environmentally friendly farming methods with Leslie hook an Emiko terrorism. I'm a co can you tell us a bit about into goes initiative to pay farmers to store, carbon, so I'm plots absorb carbon dioxide from the Ariza grow, and then they release it back to the air and soil as they decompose? What indigo is saying is bomb as we want you to restore so health and increase its ability to store, carbon, and we'll pay for it so farming practices, like, minimal tilling of the soil planting cover crops in between main crops and crop rotation. Having livestock Rome in the fields that can all help the soil capturing carbon is this different than what farmers normally do? Well, traditionally these were what bombers have been doing, but one day intensive bombing practices, like using chemical pesticides, and fertilizers have a rare disloyal health and scientists estimate the across cropland soils as carbon concentration about one percent in this compared to about three percent for naturally. Consistence like forests, I guess, when I'm struggling understand, is how much carbon this is going to save in how they're going to measure it. Leslie. What do you think it is very hard to measure, how long the carbon stays in the soil and to measure each individual plot? And that's always been one of the challenges with this approach. We know that globally. There is a lot of carbon stored in the soil. The top two meters of soil around the earth, contain about three times as much carbon as the atmosphere. So there is a huge store of carbon, they're already and as Emiko says a lot of it has been lost. Scientists I've spoken to have often pointed this figure of four hundred and fifty billion tons of CO, two essentially lost from the soil because of modern farming practices. So that's about a decade's worth of global emissions, and that's going into the atmosphere. So it has had a huge impact, and there's a huge sort of opportunity. Here, but one it is quite difficult to quantify, and I think indigo correct me if I'm wrong, they are planning to use satellite, imagery, and a very novel approach to sort of measure, what the farmers are doing. So indigo says that it will use remote sensing technology from satellites, and satellites, these days, come measure, everything from radiation to see a two levels, so that's what they're going to rely on. And the companies also part of a study with tens of thousands of farms looking at how carbon is stored in soil. But they've also launched a competition calling on innovators and entrepreneurs to come up with scaling up measurement for carbon, so it's a bit of a moving target. It's a cool to arms. But it's you know, I think it's opened a little people's eyes into the potential there. Can you explain a little bit more about the business model and how exactly this is going to be financed? So indigo is going to use its own money to pay them as initially and then settled on the. The so-called common credits to feed companies and other cultural companies what's in it for indigo? I know they've invested in authors of environmental initiatives. And that's kind of their main thing, but how are they going to benefit from this? So one of indigo businesses is selling my Kirby -als to form. So coating seeds with microbials, which is essentially what Sinaga as well, but using those microbials to help bombs reduce chemicals, Passat specializes, so that hoping is farmers turn to traditional soil-friendly methods that they can increase sales. The but also, if arm as have more organic and less pass tied less fertilizer used crops that increases the premium the famous can get and indigo also of his like an EBay for grains. But they offer this marketplace, where palm is combined sell that premium get grains to buzz so they hoping. It will kind of ties together. But I don't think we've said immediately in this scheme, how much to farmers stand to make because they're effectively being subsidised paid to do this. We'll exactly so indigo in two thousand nineteen says the pharmacies lineup this year. They'll pay fifteen dollars for every tonne of carbon. They've managed to store in the soil and this year, the hoping to sign up more than three thousand growers covering more than one million acres, and then eventually going to take these carbon credits and sell them onto company. Exactly Leslie, what do you think about that idea? Is it something that's just a novel need idea? Does it actually have the potential for a bigger impact? Why I think it's interesting because it's one of many efforts that we're starting to see to store more carbon as global emissions hit a record high last year. The gap between what the world should be doing to limit. The worst impacts of global warming and the reality of what's going up in the atmosphere is just growing, and so more people are thinking about what's called negative emissions acknowledges, and these are just ways to. Store carbon in the soil. Underground in the ocean in trees. It kind of covers any way that you're pulling CO two out of the air, and storing it or sequestering it in a place where it won't be released and soil has really been one of the most interesting areas for this sort of negative emissions technology because that's nature's own way of storing a lot of carbon. So in a way it's sort of a low hanging fruit. There's not some technological mystery about how this works so have been a lot of really interesting efforts to try and replenish, the carbon that stored in soil, which can be good for the fertility of the soil and for the crops, as well as good for the atmosphere and from agricultural point of view, the debate about how much bombing and agriculture contribute to emissions is also been growing, and I think policymakers, quite aware. Of the debate around that. And I think they're more actively wanting to find ways to help reduce negate emissions out of agricultural, farming and this is potentially one of the ways have you seen that, as well as yeah, there's a lot of emissions from the cultural sector a lot of greenhouse gas emissions. There's methane emissions from cows. There's emissions from easel trucks, there is a Monja emissions that arise when you fertilize the fields. There's a lot of different types of environmental impacts from farming that are coming under more of a focus. I mean here in the UK there's a lot of discussion over payments to farmers that would reflect sustainable farming practices and reflect the positive environmental impact of what farmers are doing mostly it'd be great to understand just how much of an impact farming has on greenhouse gas emissions as maybe compared to other sources. Well, most people don't instantly think of the farm, as a huge source think of sort of the coal power play. Belching black smoke. But in many countries agriculture is the second largest source of emissions after the power sector globally. It accounts around thirteen percent of greenhouse, gas, emissions now, different farms have different types of environmental impact so cattle farms dairy farms, have a larger impact on greenhouse gas emissions because of the methane that's emitted by cows and farming practices can also have a big impact on emissions and previously. This was overlooked, a lot of the efforts on decarbonisation have really focused on getting rid of coal and cleaning up the power sector, more renewable energy and farming is a very difficult sector to introduce change into because you have so many farmers so many different types of crops, but it's an area where a lot more companies and policymakers are increasingly focusing and how optimistic are people in the sector that initiatives like the indigo one, maybe two? Taken in aggregate are actually going to make a difference. I think there's going to be a lot more research and a lot more funding going into programs like this, we've seen researchers looking at what type of plants can help store more carbon in the soil. We've seen companies like indigo starting to pay farmers. So I think this is an area that's going to see a lot of growth. That was Lauren Fito took into Leslie hook environment correspondent, and Emiko tear is owner or commodities. Correspondent, thanks for listening.

Freedom Party, Europe And Austria discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"Just a few weeks ago. Things were looking rosy for Austrian politician, Heinz, Christian stock. Mr. struck has hard, right. Freedom Party had been ruling in a governing coalition and he was the country's vice chancellor and heads. The his- at a campaign event for the upcoming European elections. He spoke from a beer tent about some of his favorite themes must see fit into human, and I'm. With a beer glass in front of him. He railed against immigration saying it causes massive development failures. He said, natives or ancestral, people becoming a minority in Austria, that the country, did not want is limitation. Now his career has taken a nosedive. He was seen in video. It was a sting was filmed covertly in twenty seventeen and it's all happening beef or so. It's become known as the beef scandal. He's discussing the possibility of illegal donations from woman who claims to be the niece of a Russian oligarch Emiko Voy is a senior editor of the economist, and was recently reporting in Austria. And there was also some of the rubber dunk stuff about controlling the media in this being part of a deal in return, the state contracts in the wake of the scandal. The Austrian chancellor Sebastian coots dissolved the coalition government by calling for elections in September. The government has fallen apart effectively. It has. Collapsed because the Freedom Party was the minority party propping up the conservative party in government in Austria. So the Israeli government that is now having to go forward to hold new elections. And we'll see what happens then. So this, right. Wing party. That was propping up. The coalition government has now got itself into some very visible trouble what happens now. The interesting thing about story is that you had is very charismatic young leaders best in courts, taking over one of those traditional parties Austrian conservatives, typically, these are the kind of policies having difficulty at the moment and having these populist challenges across Europe. Would he did reach out to the Freedom Party, which is pretty hard core is much better to bring these guys into government? We can sort out things to the satisfaction of the broad centre-right and further. Right. The problem now is that has been up Salih torn asunder to presumably in the forthcoming. Elections than the Freedom Party this far right? Party will do extremely poorly, and perhaps, the, the conservative party will get an outright majority. I think it's quite difficult for conservatives to get that, right. Majority struggled for years, but was needed coalition partners, the Freedom Party. We simply don't know you would say, wouldn't you, this is one of the great pratfalls of political drama, in Europe, but let's not forget, they do have a very strong base very strong in certain parts of Austria, and also Australia, bit defiant, and often when they find that they've got a leader, whatever their political taste, the basal leader under pressure as often stood very firm. It's not absolutely clear that being hugely embarrassed once figure is gone destroys your vote Sebastian could However, I think, will not want to go back into a coalition with these guys really has had his fingers bird. And what about beyond Austria as we head into the European parliamentary elections, will this story have resonance for all of those people thinking? About other populist right-wing hard line parties. I think the kind of nuanced populism that's to in courts represents still has a lotta vote here across Europe. And don't think it's on the way, the European elections of probably getting to suggest that what does it mean it means coming up with solutions of possible solutions to immigration and asylum crises, which you, usually about keeping the people who want to come quite a long way from Europe's borders, and particularly the borders of its inner state. So it can mean trying to do deals to keep them just at the edge of the broader e you. But I think that way of taking some of the language of hatred and stripping away, leaving that to the fall reut was same time, you preach pragmatism, but you really try to clamp down on the numbers coming in. I do think that is the politics. The is gaining in salience across Europe. That election to the European parliament begins tomorrow with all twenty eight European countries. Voting over three days. In the five years since the last elections, nationalist parties like Austria's, Freedom, Party have seen their fortunes rise. But one feature of the last few years in Europe has been the growth of extreme parties on the right. And, and on the left particularly on the right. I suppose Chris Lockwood is economists Europe editor you see in Italy, the Northern League Lega becoming a much more powerful force in politics, you see in Spain, the rise of this small new, vox party in Poland shift to the conservative party of law, and Justice, and so on, and so forth. So it's to be expected in these elections that you will see a bit of a tilt in the European parliament towards the far. Right. Does that mean that the sort of overall tilt of the parliament itself will we'll be to the right? Do you think I think this has been rather exaggerated? If you take the combined forces of what you could call the nationalist right if you define those parties as being one. That are outside of the mainstream existing parties. I wouldn't expect them to gain more than forty or fifty or maybe sixty seats which is a sizable number. But remember that the European parliament is seven hundred fifty one strong. You say this rise in the sort of extreme parties, isn't quite so worrisome as, as some might think. But I mean, do you think it's election kind of takes the temperature of the, the you as a whole? Well, that's a very interesting question. I don't want to underestimate what's going on here, you are seeing forces that previously were not in mainstream politics, taking bigger rose in national parliaments, and bigger roles in the European parliament. So that does matter because it also requires the parties, particularly on the center right shifting a bit to the right in order to fend off that challenge. So, so there is an impact, and it's a response to a number of things one, the continued depression of wages and the hangover from the European Europe. Crisis of two thousand and ten to eleven and before that the worldwide credit crunch of two thousand eight hundred words the fact that Europe did receive an enormous number of migrants coming out of the Middle East, and that's led to a tremendous backlash in quite a number of countries. So these are genuine things that are genuinely happening in their, they're shifting politics to certain extent in a right with direction. So does it seem to you, then that people are kind of losing faith in the EU as an institution? No. It didn't think so actually, if you look at all the polling, it suggests that support for the EU is rather high levels. Of course, it went down during the economic crises pass those not the economies are in a fantastic state, but economic growth is returned unemployment has come down. And of course, you have the experiment of Britain Britain vertically leave the EU and has got himself into a tremendous mess ever since not able to decide quite what the mechanism for leaving would be. Be not being able to form a consensus on when and how to do it. And as a result every other country where there have been. Exit type movements of old hundred around. Maybe it isn't such a great idea. So the fascinating thing is that despite all of the problems that Europe's been through maybe even because of them because it was seemed to have just about survived them.

Yeah. And it's actually kind of ironic because often is often hailed as every health high-standard company for. For health and environmental issues, but they use these chemicals which can cause liver damage and cancer.

It was used in the forty s or resistant in manufacturing and used today and like fire retardant dating, but they did respond.
