Queensland Floods To Cut Australia's GDP by $2.5B
The massive flooding encompassing much of eastern Australia that has displaced more than 1,200 residents could cut the country's gross domestic product by as much as $2.5 billion, reports The Australian. Inflation may rise just as Queensland water levels have--the flood could remain at 8.5 meters (28 feet) well into next week--but an interest rate increase will likely be delayed given the circumstances. JPMorgan Australia chief economist Stephen Walters said yesterday that the flood damage would see a sharp uptick in fruit and vegetable prices, but that "the RBA is likely to look through those numbers and we believe will hold off raising the official interest rate in February." Walters cited the inability of railways and ports to work at full capacity as one of the biggest problems for Queensland exporters, namely those exporting coal. Goldman Sachs analyst Andrew Boak noted that Queensland usually exports around $7.5 billion worth of coal each quarter, so a month of zero exports would shave off $2.5 billion, or 0.2%, from the country's annual GDP. JPMorgan is projecting that the flood will push global coking coal prices up by more than a third to US$300 from early December levels of US$225. Australia's GDP will also be hit with delays in major projects, including planned coal-seam gas projects. However, Boak noted that, on the bright side, clean-up and repairs will add to GDP, while higher fruit and vegetable prices "will boost incomes for those in unaffected areas."

COPPER AND IRON ORE WILL TRADE HIGHER AS CHINA'S ECONOMY CONTINUES TO RECOVER. THE NATION IS ALSO SET TO OVERTAKE INDIA AS THE BIGGEST CONSUMER OF GOLD, SAYS JONATHAN BARRATT OF BARRATSBULLETIN.COM SHOWS: SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (JANUARY 15, 2013) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) JONATHAN BARRATT, CEO, BARRATTSBULLETIN.COM 1. REPORTER OFF CAMERA SAYING: "China's GDP data comes out on Friday. What assumptions do you have of China's growth pace this year? And which commodities will benefit most from it?" 2. JONATHAN BARRATT SAYING: "I think when I look at the GDP numbers, I think that coming around that 7.8 is I think where the market really wants. Remember, I think China's expansion has to have a rate of close to that 7.5/7.8 in order to placate the expansion and of course the population. So I think we will see it come in at around that clip. I think it will be very supportive and I think I'd certainly be disappointed if it came anywhere below because early indications are that the economy is recovering. And I think the markets are certainly looking for those expectations to be fulfilled. I guess as a result of that, we look to the forms of stimulus programs which they put into play and they've already echoed the market exactly what they tried to achieve. So when I look at that, it's got to be that demand for infrastructure materials. So I got to look at the iron ore as a continued demand. And remember we're coming up to a round of price negotiations there, so we've got to be keenly watching what happens there. And also copper because if I look at the copper market, and in the absence of I guess a global economy slowing, we will go very quickly I think into a deficit in terms of supply. So I think that deficit that supply issues for copper I think will be a major concern for the metal and as a result of that I'll see it trading higher." 3. REPORTER OFF CAMERA SAYING: "Where do you see gold prices headed in 2013?" 4. JONATHAN BARRATT SAYING: "I think we're in a range for gold prices. I would like to see them test through that 17.50 and maybe up through that 18.50 level. But I think it will come in around that quarter 2. At the moment we're seeing gold I think pretty much happy to be in a range. Perhaps we'll test the topside but I don't see gold really taking off this quarter." 5. REPORTER OFF CAMERA SAYING: "When will China outpace India as the world's biggest consumer of gold?" 6. JONATHAN BARRATT SAYING: "Yeah, I think when you look at between India and China as to who will tops the consumption, look, I think it's going to be sometime this year. We already saw a little glimmers of it last couple of quarters where they're certainly catching up. And I think if we start to get this expansion program, maybe linked with a little bit more of inflationary fears which we saw a little while ago in China, you'll probably see people sort of invest in the precious metal. So it's not going to be too long, but I think China will overtake India."

Festival of Dangerous Ideas 2013: Vandana Shiva - Growth = Poverty
When natural resources like timber, water and mineral deposits can be extracted from ecosystems, they become assets with dollar values that can be bought and sold internationally and enable developing countries to grow and participate in the global economy. If growth is the key to emerging from poverty, then this might seem like a good thing. But what if these same resources being sold to richer nations come from an ecosystem that people depend on for their livelihood? What if new growth is actually proportional to the creation of new poverty? The cult of 'growth' has dictated policy for decades. But if well-being, not growth, is our goal, selling resources that bring long term wellbeing to communities for short term gain is a very bad deal. Hard as it may be for the West to understand, protecting the ecological resources of communities might be more important than GDP figures. Vandana Shiva holds a PhD in physics, but is best known as an environmental, and anti-globalisation activist and as a leading figure of 'ecofeminism.' Shiva is based in India and is the author of over twenty books, including Staying Alive and Biopiracy. She is a former recipient of the Sydney Peace Prize. Chair: Simran Sethi is an award-winning Indian American journalist. She is currently undergoing a research fellowship at the University of Melbourne in Australia on the loss of agricultural biodiversity in our food system. http://sydneyoperahouse.com/ideas Subscribe and find more videos from Ideas at the House: http://www.youtube.com/ideasatthehouse Get a new talk every week on our podcast: Audio - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640445035 Video - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640444896 Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/IdeasAtTheHouse Twitter - https://twitter.com/ideasatthehouse

Five charts that show why Australia is facing financial MELTDOWN
Five charts that show why Australia is facing financial MELTDOWN UNEMPLOYMENT in Australia is rising and economic growth is slowing with experts fearing the country is about to go through a significant downturn. Resource-rich Australia has benefited hugely from the exponential growth in China's economy in recent years, by supplying the raw materials that has powered the Asian boom. In line with the rise in supplying China, Australia switched from an economy making its own goods to one that digs materials out of the ground. Mining as a percentage of Australian GDP has jumped to 8.6 per cent, while manufacturing has steadily dropped. But now the colossal Chinese economy is slowing down and, as Australia's top export destination, the abating is expected to have a big impact. http://www.express.co.uk/finance/city/596839/Charts-that-show-Australian-economy-is-in-financial-trouble

ABN Newswire: Clifford Bennett Market Overview Jan 21, 2011
The Dow Jones and US markets have been very firm over last couple of trading sessions as well as the economic data overnight and existing home sales were better than expected. US jobless claims dropped down approximately 400,000, with a lower sustainable trend showing the US economy is looking better. The Chinese GDP data quite a strong number at 9.8% for 2010, looking to grow to 10.6% for 2011. Resource stocks a little weak on the basis China is growing too quickly and they'll have to slow their economy, a twisted logic, to sell commodites because China will try to slow a booming economy, that booming economy will continue to demand our commodities. The move down in BHP was overdone, to much focus on coal and floods. Situation of coal is prices are elavated because of the floods. After the floods and supply comes back online, the coal prices will stabalise with potential for continued elavation which is positive outlook for coal mining companies. Shanghai omposite index start to recover, Dow Jones and ASXSP looking very healthy. The Australian market has held reasonably well, and wouldnt be surprised if we start to take off and continue what is still a bullish week.

Welcome to the Anthropocene (HD)
http://www.facebook.com/liberascienza A 3-minute journey through the last 250 years of our history, from the start of the Industrial Revolution to the Rio+20 Summit. The film charts the growth of humanity into a global force on an equivalent scale to major geological processes. "The Anthropocene changes our relationship with the planet. We have a new responsibility and we need to determine how to meet that responsibility." Conference Chief Scientific Advisor, Nobel Laureate Professor Elinor Ostrom, Indiana University. Welcome to the Anthropocene provides a data visualization of the state of the planet. It opens at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. As the camera swoops over Earth, viewers watch the planetary impact of humanity: cities, roads, railways, pipelines, cables and shipping lanes until finally the world's planes spin a fine web around the planet. The film is produced as part of the world's first educational portal on the Anthropocene. In the 3-minute film, the graph's y-axis title rotates like an airline departure board providing latest information on key parameters: population, energy use, GDP, urbanization, fertilizer use, deforestation, biodiversity loss, and others. The graph overlay is an artist's interpretation of the great acceleration in human activity.

Rural communities have often been affected adversely in historic economic systems based on centralized power and food production. The loss of environmental and human wealth has been costly, particularly in Native American communities, but other rural communities are similarly affected. This historic pattern has buttressed an unsustainable way of life. The future must be sustainable in terms of environment, economics and social relations. Relocalizing food and energy systems as core elements of a rural economy indeed national and international economies has the potential to transform world social, economic and political relations. Our work at a local, national and international level describes how communities make change and the implications for larger society.

Market Outlook May 2011 [Part of 20:20 Investor series]
Welcome to another update from Martin Place securities, on the resources market here in Australia. Without a doubt we can say we've got a lot of volatility in these markets and looking back at the broad indices it's clear that the Australian market's the same level it was two years ago with a lot of internal volatility as the market moves up to around that 5,000 level on the all ords. Each time it gets up there, there seems to be some international event which undermines everything. But as we look back over the past decade there's been a lot of volatility, a lot of international issues, a lot of natural disasters, and it's been extremely difficult to make money and to see any trend , it's been very, very difficult indeed. But as we go through all of this, we do see that the markets are still maintaining a certain pessimism, which I think is healthy, in one sense, as it does not appear to be reflecting the true fundamentals that we see. What I would like to confirm to people; there are three things that we really define and recognize in the market place. The first thing is the demand side issue that we have through, what we call, the non-OECD countries, China, the BRIIC, India, whatever you want to call it. It means that those non-OECD emerging countries and economies have been very robust, and they've had this very strong demand for raw materials; consequently we see it most clearly in the steel industry. The steel numbers in china for April showed a record level of just over 715million tonnes annualized production, it's a very good sign of the underlying demand within the economy. People are concerned about Chinese growth, but they've been concerned about Chinese growth probably for about the last 5 or 6 years, but I think it will remain quite robust as we see the economy broadening and increasing in its level of complexity and sophistication which I think will only strengthen the economy. The second thing that we always look at is supply side. As far as the resource sector is concerned we've got real tightness in the iron ore market, tightness in the coal market, tightness in the oil market, the copper market, and gold and silver. Then we can look at the smaller metals, and look at the rare earths that have really got supply side issues that are going to keep commodities on the boil I think for quite some years to come. And the third thing is that the debasement of western currencies, as we've seen, particularly in the united states, and also parts of Europe, but really interesting to see the strength of the Australian Dollar against all those currencies. The volatility, again, reflects the various things from European debts, US debt and natural disasters, but overall I think this thing is going to resolved to the upside. One of the really important things we see is BHP with its views. Everyone should look at the presentations that BHP puts out because they are really at the leading edge, and at the coal face, if I can use that term, of what is happening in the real markets, and they're the ones that are saying that the iron ore market is undersupplied; they're the ones that are saying the copper market is tight. We also like to focus on all those increased commodity volumes mean at high prices. It means much higher revenues in the Australian dollar as we've pointed out in presentations and you'll see in the slide here the first five years of the 2000 decade, we saw Australian exports from the resource sector being around 50billion, they got up to 160 billion in 09 and they're down a bit in 2010, although they should be up a bit this year, but by the time we get to 2015 we're looking about around 250 billion dollars, another 100 billion dollars of export revenues. And even that's based on Iron Ore prices that aren't as high as we want at the moment, and also $1.20 on the currency against the US dollar, so that will have a big impact on what goes on in Australia. So when we look at those fundamentals, the markets, the commodities, the commodity prices, I think gold and silver, oil and copper, have probably bottomed just in the last week and I think we're going to see much higher prices on those going forward, and I think we'll see some catalyst to send out market higher into 2012. Finally, I want to talk about the cash levels. There's been very large about the amount of cash that's gone in the banking systems, the CMT systems, and superannuation funds, as far as we can work out, have probably got around 25-18% cash overall, now that's a lot of cash on the sidelines, superannuation funds are about 1.3trillion dollars and that's bigger than GDP and it really means that 25% of GDP is cash. That cash will be redeployed and I think it's going to be a pretty interesting twelve months ahead of us.

Economy of Syria
The economy of Syria is based on agriculture, oil, industry and services. Its GDP per capita expanded 80% in the 1960s reaching a peak of 336% of total growth during the 1970s. This proved unsustainable for Syria and the economy shrank by 33% during the 1980s. However the GDP per capita registered a very modest total growth of 12% during the 1990s due to successful diversification. More recently, the International Monetary Fund projected real GDP growth at 3.9% in 2009 from close to 6% in 2008. The two main pillars of the Syrian economy used to be agriculture and oil, which together accounted for about one-half of GDP. Agriculture, for instance, accounted for about 25% of GDP and employed 25% of the total labor force. However, poor climatic conditions and severe drought badly affected the agricultural sector, thus reducing its share in the economy to about 17% of 2008 GDP, down from 20.4% in 2007, according to preliminary data from the Central Bureau of Statistics. On the other hand, higher crude oil prices countered declining oil production and led to higher budgetary and export receipts. Since the out break of the Syrian civil war, the Syrian economy has been hit by massive economic sanctions restricting trade with the Arab League, Australia, Canada, the European Union, Georgia, Japan, Turkey, and the United States. These sanctions and the instability associated with the civil war have reversed previous growth in the Syrian economy to a state of decline for the years 2011 and 2012. According to the UN, total economic damages of the Syrian civil war are estimated at $143 billion as of late 2013. This video is targeted to blind users.

The Role of Coal in a New Energy Age
The Role of Coal in a New Energy Age - Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming - 2010-04-14 - For the first time in recent memory, the CEOs of America's top two coal mining companies, and a leading international company, came to Capitol Hill to answer questions on their positions on climate change, clean energy policy, and the challenges that face their industry. "Just as our national energy policy is at a crossroads, so, too, is the coal industry," said Rep. Edward J. Markey, who chairs the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, the committee that hosted the CEOs. "Whether it's climate science, the viability of 'clean coal,' or safety concerns, I believe Congress requires answers from the coal industry on their ability to be a part of our clean energy future." As Congress continues to push for a comprehensive clean energy and climate bill, questions remain regarding the coal industry's position on the essential science of climate change and their potential to provide cleaner, lower-carbon fuel in the decades to come. The House-passed Waxman-Markey bill offered a pathway for coal to transition to carbon capture and sequestration technologies. The coal mining industry has seen significant developments over the last two weeks. A mining accident in West Virginia has renewed questions about the safety of coal extraction, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has offered new rules on the environmental and health impacts of mountaintop mining. TESTIMONY: Gregory Boyce, President and Chief Executive Officer, Peabody Energy Corporation; Steven F. Leer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Arch Coal, Inc.; Preston Chiaro, Chief Executive for Energy and Minerals, Rio Tinto; Michael Carey, President, Ohio Coal Association.

Rep. Chris Collins: Hillary Clinton Represents A Third Obama Term Of Stagnation
Fox Business News’ Ashley Webster quoting Donald Trump Tweet: “Crooked Hillary equals Obama’s third term, which would be terrible news for our economic growth - seen below.” I would imagine you agree with Mr. Trump that Hillary Clinton just adds four more years on what we’ve had with Mr. Obama?” Rep Chris Collins (R-NY) “Oh, I certainly do, Ashley. In fact, she’s campaigning with Barack Obama. She’s effectively saying that. She’s not even trying to hide it. In fact, she is suggesting our economy’s just fine. There’s no problems that she can see. You know, I have a saying in my office: ‘In God We Trust, All Others Bring Data.’ And the data says more people living in poverty today than when Obama took office. Wages have been stagnant. Our growth has been anemic, at best. You can go on and on, you know. We know that kids getting out of college are struggling. They are either under-employed or unemployed. So, when they say the economy’s fine, America, or at least 80 percent of America are shaking their heads and go, ‘I’m not sure what world they’re living in.’ But there certainly, Donald Trump is correct and I think Hillary would agree. She does represent, effectively, a third Obama term of stagnation. She won’t use these words, but stagnation, no wage growth, no true GDP growth and just the continued anemic economy that robs our children of the opportunity to live the American Dream.”

The Spanish Empire, Silver, & Runaway Inflation: Crash Course World History #25
In which John Green explores how Spain went from being a middling European power to one of the most powerful empires on Earth, thanks to their plunder of the New World in the 16th and 17th centuries. Learn how Spain managed to destroy the two biggest pre-Columbian civilizations, mine a mountain made of silver, mishandle their economy, and lose it all by the mid-1700s. Come along for the roller coaster ride with Charles I (he was also Charles V), Philip II, Atahualpa, Moctezuma, Hernán Cortés, and Francisco Pizarro as Spain rises and falls, and takes two empires and China down with them.

As economy reaches zenith, leading economist warns next recession already in view
As economy reaches zenith, leading economist warns next recession already in view: . Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPLbW-HoiBuA8yepLypwA6g?sub_confirmation=1 Next recession in view despite best GDP growth in years, economists warn RN Breakfast By David Taylor As the economy reaches its economic zenith, a leading economist warns the next recession is already in view.Today marks the day after a well-deserved GDP party.Like any enthusiastic celebration though, there's the inevitable hangover.The latest economic growth figures show the Coalition's "jobs and growth" tagline is now very much a reality.Since forming government, more than a million jobs have been created and the economy's growth rate — at 3.1 per cent — is the envy of the world, sitting at the top of the G7 economic leader board.The chief economist of the Bureau of Statistics, Bruce Hockman, points out, "Growth in exports accounted for half the growth in GDP, and reflected strength in exports of mining commodities".The data show strong contributions from the production of coal, iron ore and liquefied natural gas.And earlier this week the Reserve Bank noted businesses and government spending were supporting the economy.It's all worthy of popping the champagne corks.But any buzz soon gives rise to feelings of nausea if the latest warnings from some of the country's leading economists are to be believed.Economy warning bells soundStephen Walters from the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), and AMP Capital's Shane Oliver fear this is as good as it's going to get. US could drive Aussie rate rise Australian home loan interest rates could be pushed higher by climbing US interest rates, explains Ian Verrender. They also warn the economy's now vulnerable to an extremely sharp downturn.You see, roughly 60 per cent of Australia's economic output comes from households, or the consumer.Yet in yesterday's figures, consumer spending contributed just 0.18 percentage points to the 1 per cent quarterly growth figure.That's less than a fifth.The data show shoppers are gradually spending less and less at the stores, and the concern is that will continue.The governor said as much following Tuesday's interest rate decision.The statement read: "One continuing source of uncertainty is the outlook for household consumption.Concern over household debtThe Australian Institute of Company Directors points out that, over the next few years, it's the enormous amount of debt households are carrying that's concerning. Why the RBA can't move Some economists see the Reserve Bank hiking interest rates before the end of the year. Ian Verrender reckons they're dreaming. Especially, it warns, with the looming threat of rising interest rates, and falling property prices."It's quite a complicated narrative," Mr Walters says."Remember, the Aussie banks don't just fund themselves domestically, but they're active in offshore markets, including short-term money markets in the US."So, as the Reserve Bank has made clear, those interest rates in the US are going up, so that means the funding costs for Australian banks are also going up."The problem with that is that #economy, #reaches, #zenith, #leading, #economist, #warns, #next, #recession, #already, #view

The Rise of the West and Historical Methodology: Crash Course World History #212
In which John Green talks about the methods of writing history by looking at some of the ways that history has been written about the rise of the West. But first he has to tell you what the West is. And then he has to explain the Rise of the West. And then he gets down to talking about the different ways that historians and other academics have explained how the West became dominant in the world. He'll look at explanations from Acemoglu and Robinson's "Why Nations Fail," Francis Fukuyama's "The Origins of Political Order," and Ian Morris's "Why the West Rules, for Now."

JCIPP Forum: Saul Eslake - Australia's Productivity Challenge
http://www.jcipp.curtin.edu.au Presented on 14th April, 2011, by the John Curtin Institute of Public Policy, Curtin University. The one big blemish on Australia's otherwise remarkably good economic performance over the past decade has been the dramatic deterioration in our productivity performance. Relative to the United States, all of the gains we accrued in the 1990s, and more, have since been reversed. The consequences of the dramatic deterioration in Australia's productivity performance over the past decade have been masked, as they were in the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s, by the combination of rapid population growth and a substantial improvement in the terms on which we trade with the rest of the world. But if we don't recognize, and reverse, the slide in our productivity performance, then when the current resources boom comes to an end (whenever that might be), Australia's economic future might look a lot more like the mid-1970s through the early 1990s than any of us would wish for.
