Sverige behöver massor av ny elkraft, och om vi snabbt ska bygga ut produktionen av fossilfri el så är det vindkraft som gäller. Men få vill ha turbinerna där de bor. Så vad gör man? Programmet är en repris från 2 maj 2022.Argumenten som förs fram mot vindkraftparkerna är många, som att tornen förstör utsikten och för med sig störande ljud, att de dödar fåglar och sänker huspriserna. Många kommuner använder därför sin rätt att säga nej till vindturbinerna med sitt veto, ofta med stöd från lokala protestgrupper. Under 2021 blev det nej till nästan 80 procent av de kraftverk som det ansöktes om.Men vi behöver ju elen. Så var ska då vindsnurrorna byggas, och hur mycket ligger det i farhågorna som framförs? Är ljuden verkligen hälsofarliga? Och hur många fåglar dör av rotorbladen? Vi pratar med forskare, vindkraftföretag och protesterande husägare.Medverkande: Nils Ringborg, talesperson Holmen Energi; Per Olof Strandberg, ordförande Rättvisa vindar norra Östergötland; Martin Green, forskare inom biodiversitet Lunds Universitet; Stephen Jarvis, miljöekonom London School of Economics; Karl Bolin, lektor ljud och akustik KTH; Ingela Lindqvist, miljöjurist Energiföretagen.Reporter: Tomas LindbladProducent: Björn Gunér bjorn.guner@sr.se

Wachstumskiller Inflation: Vier Gründe für das Versagen von EZB und Fed / Türkische Lira stürzt ab

Die Notenbanken haben offenbar zu spät auf die Probleme der Weltwirtschaft reagiert. Das ergab eine Studie eines bekannten Ökonomen. Er kommt unter anderem zu dem Schluss: Die Banker hätten genauer hinschauen müssen. In ihrer letzten Ratssitzung hat die Europäische Zentralbank (EZB) nach elf Jahren die Ära der ultralockeren Geldpolitik beendet und den Leitzins stärker als erwartet um 0,5 Prozentpunkte angehoben. Der Beschluss fand in Reaktion auf die stark erhöhte Inflation im Euro-Raum statt, welche im Juni auf 8,6 Prozent gestiegen ist. Doch als Hüter der europäischen Geldwertstabilität, kommt die Reaktion auf den erhöhten Preisdruck in Europa aber auch den USA spät, kritisieren nun einige Ökonomen. Eine Studie der London School of Economics, welche unter der Leitung des prominenten Ökonomen Ricardo Reis durchgeführt wurde, bestätigt dies. „Neben der falsch eingeschätzten Auswirkungen der Covid-Pandemie, haben die Notenbanken laut Reis unter anderem auch die Rolle der Inflationserwartungen unterschätzt, die eigene Glaubwürdigkeit überschätzt und den für die Geldpolitik entscheidenden Gleichgewichtszins zu niedrig eingeschätzt“, erklärt Handelsblatt Finanzredakteur Frank Wiebe. Im Podcast Handelsblatt Today bespricht Wiebe mit Host Ina Karabasz die Ergebnisse der Studie und inwieweit die Notenbanken anders hätten reagieren können. Außerdem: Bei ihrem ersten Staatsbesuch als Bundesaußenministerin in der Türkei und Griechenland hat Grünen-Politikerin Annalena Baerbock mit ihren klaren Worten den Tonus ihrer Vorgänger: Kontroversen mit den Gesprächspartnern wurden nicht nur im Vier-Augen-Gespräch ausgetragen, sondern öffentlich während der Konferenz angesprochen. Vor allem der Insel-Streit zwischen Griechenland und Türkei war ein Teil der Konfrontation. Während des vorangegangenen Besuchs in Athen hatte sich Baerbock klar auf die Seite Griechenlands gestellt. Die angespannte Situation in der Türkei könnte sich demnächst sogar noch verschärfen: Seit Kriegsbeginn nutzt Moskau die bestehende Energieabhängigkeit des Landes als politischen Hebel. Der Hebel wirkt zunehmend stärker, weil die Inflation in der Türkei mittlerweile bei knapp 80 Prozent liegt und die türkische Lira immer mehr an Wert verliert. Im Podcast spricht Handelsblatt Türkei-Korrespondent Ozan Demircan über die Zukunft der türkischen Lira und wie das Land nun zunehmend versucht eigene Quellen zu erschließen. *** Exklusives Angebot für Handelsblatt-Today-Hörer: Testen Sie Handelsblatt Premium 6 Wochen für 1 € und bleiben Sie immer informiert, was die Finanzmärkte bewegt.

Entrevista a José Mauricio Domingues | 49no. episodio Dentro de las diversas corrientes del pensamiento político moderno que han conseguido terreno fértil en América Latina, podríamos decir que las ideas de izquierda han estado presente en prácticamente todas sus formas políticas en la historia contemporánea del continente. Desde su formato guerrillero rural, hasta en sus formas mas burocratizadas y citadinas. Desde estar fuera del sistema político hasta haber sido gobierno. Desde la socialdemocracia y el socialismo, hasta el comunismo, en mayor o menor medida, ha estado presentes en la cultura popular, en la formación académica de nuestras universidades, en los movimientos gremiales y hasta en la formación de cuadros de los partidos políticos de nuestras naciones. Sin embargo, a pesar de tener una referencia tan fuerte en la opinión pública ¿sabríamos definir las características centrales de su acervo teórico? ¿Todo planteamiento de resistencia a un mal gobierno, necesariamente es de izquierda? ¿Podríamos identificar y definir a los liderazgos de izquierda con un concepto que sea aplicable y reconocible desde Guatemala hasta Argentina? Ciertamente, en nuestra región esta porción del espectro ideológico ha adoptado también elementos propios de la dinámica política de la región, así como también cambiando con el paso de las décadas. Lo cual incluye también muy diversas formas de gestión pública que van desde gobiernos socialdemócratas hasta otros abiertamente dictatoriales. Este programa forma parte de un seriado de tres episodios consecutivos, en los que buscamos abarcar a groso modo los principales planteamientos ideológicos en los que se maneja la política contemporánea de nuestra región. Con lo cual, enriquecer el debate público con aproximaciones teóricas que sean cercanas a las referencias cotidianas de nuestra audiencia. En este sentido nos preguntamos, nos preguntamos ¿cuáles son los orígenes del pensamiento política de izquierda en nuestra región? ¿Cuáles han sido los aspectos auténticamente latinoamericanos que se han ido incluyendo en las últimas décadas? ¿Estamos viviendo un segundo viraje a la izquierda en la región?

We have to build a better world for the next generation, and that requires great leadership. This requires leaders who are not afraid to highlight what is good now, and who can ensure sustainability. These leaders will create strong organizational cultures by demonstrating creativity, empathy and innovation.   In today's episode of Fifth Dimensional Leadership, I interview Francesca Cornelli. She talks about leading a dynamic academic landscape and immortalizing key values and principles. Francesca is the  Dean of Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management. She is also a Professor of Finance and holds the Donald P. Jacobs Chair of Finance.    Previously, Dean Cornelli was a Professor of Finance and Deputy Dean at London Business School. She directed and advanced the highly regarded Private Equity Institute of London Business School, building a bridge between academia and practice by partnering with private equity leaders in London, alumni, and top academics in the field.   Dean Cornelli is widely respected as an accomplished academic and a leader in business education. She has extensive international experience and has taught at some of the world's top schools, including the Wharton School, Duke University's Fuqua School of Business, the London School of Economics, the Indian School of Business in Hyderabad and the New Economic School in Moscow.    Things you will also learn in this episode:   What makes an institution of higher education excellent How to improve the continuity of culture Why good discussions don't have to have consensus  Learn about “Authentic Evolution” and “Enlightened Disagreement” Clarify what "Empathy" really means The role of trust, communication, and transparency in strong leadership. Quotes:   “A great institution is an institution that values research and intellectual effort and believes that it eventually will change the world.” - Francesca Cornelli   “Disruption is an opportunity as interesting as a space for being creative.” - Francesca Cornelli   “The [Kellogg] culture just self-perpetuates without people planning and thinking about it.” - Francesca Cornelli   “Communication is important, and we have to keep innovating how we communicate.” - Francesca Cornelli   “We are programmed to think a good decision will get consensus; we have to let that thinking go.” - Francesca Cornelli   “Empathy is treating others the way they want to be treated.” - Francesca Cornelli   “Becoming international is less about knowing some facts about behaviors in different countries, but more about having the sensitivity on how people will interpret things differently.” - Francesca Cornelli   “Not taking sides is still a point of view.” - Francesca Cornelli   “Even if you don't change the point of view of where you should eventually land, it's going to be very important to understand where people are coming from to work with them.” - Francesca Cornelli

OK snap back to the present and there is still something we can do about that last one. A report by the World Health Organization warns that obesity has already reached “epidemic proportions” in Europe, causing 200,000 cancer cases and 1.2 million deaths a year. The UK is currently 4th in its European rankings and in ten years is predicted to top the charts. The question is: How is this possible in a country where the Government has an obesity strategy, and where at least a dozen policies or white papers have been announced on the topic since 1997? In this episode of the Food Matters Live Podcast, we are going to look at the possible solutions and ask what the food industry can do, to help solve the crisis. We will also ask: Given this situation, why has the Government decided to delay the ban on the promotion of foods high in fat salt and sugar (HFSS)?

Ep. 77: Concentrating President Biden’s mind wonderfully

A version of this essay has been published by firstpost.com at https://www.firstpost.com/opinion/from-caatsa-waiver-for-india-to-chastened-visit-to-saudi-arabia-why-biden-is-making-conciliatory-noises-10961801.htmlSamuel Johnson once said: “When a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully”. Going by POTUS Biden’s recent hyperactivity, it seems that the prospect of imminent electoral catastrophe has the same effect. For, the hitherto imperious Democrats have been backpedaling so furiously that it is a wonder to watch.Consider just a few events: the importunate, chastened visit to Saudi Arabia (after having trashed it for the Jamal Khashoggi murder); the CAATSA waiver for India (after blood-curdling threats by the sorely missed Daleep Singh et al regarding Ukraine); and the noises being made by several parties about bringing hostilities to an end in Ukraine. Behind all these is the realization that pandemic management has been royally screwed up (the much-vaccinated and Pfizer-oral-vaccine-medicated Biden himself caught the Wuhan virus), and that Anthony Fauci, Peter Daszak et al surreptitiously funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan was a major mistake. To be fair, even formerly lionized New Zealand now has significant numbers of covid deaths, but that is hardly comforting to Americans. Printing trillions of dollars as the panacea for covid was an even greater mistake, because the blowback has been raging inflation at 9.1%, hitting the average voter in the pocketbook. I personally endured the previous bout of high US inflation in the late 70s, but as a poor student it didn’t affect me much; as a family man I am sure I would have been pinched badly if I were a US resident and voter now. I remember petrol at $1-2, not $5 as it is now. This does not bode well for the Biden Democrats in the November midterm elections.Inflation is not fun, as the Turkish voter is also finding out. Someone will take the blame.I don’t think blaming Vladimir Putin for inflation is quite working; nor is blaming Donald Trump, who, after all, was the only recent POTUS who didn’t go to war. Biden’s ratings may continue on a downward trajectory. The abortion rights issue roused some of the faithful, but I don’t think this has staying power till November. Thus the U-turns, amusing to the impartial observer. The energy squeeze (and related inflation) explains the Saudi visit. The European Union, in particular Germany, is in bad shape, as is evident from the Euro dropping to a historical low of parity to the dollar. Germany’s GDP shrank for the first time in, well… a long time. If there is no renewed supply of Russian gas, Europe is going to freeze this winter. So it is imperative for NATO to beg or cajole or threaten OPEC, especially the Saudis, into increasing production.There had earlier been the unedifying spectacle of Biden seeking help from Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and even Iran, all of whom his staff had demonized earlier. If I am not mistaken, the Saudis and the Venezuelans literally refused to take his phone call, which is humiliating. There is a more subtle reason the Saudis are important to Biden: petrodollars. Who outside the US is going to want all those trillions printed by the US Fed other than to buy petroleum products? The fact is that, having been lured by the siren-song of the Chinese, the US has de-industrialized to such an extent that there's not much global demand for dollars to buy American goods, except for armaments and high technology. If petroleum were to be traded in any other currency than the US dollar, it would depreciate, maybe even collapse. That is a scary prospect, which could trigger a serious global recession. Saudis have to be mollified and/or terrified so they don't even think of accepting other currencies in payment. Both Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein talked about accepting payment in Euros etc, and we all know what happened to them. Besides, there is an interesting little trick: the ‘Tipu Technique’. I believe the British tacitly encouraged Tipu to invade and loot the temples of Kerala, which had grown rich through centuries of lucrative spice trading. The British saw this opportunity, and allowed Tipu to haul the loot to Srirangapatnam. Then they killed him, and took all the riches in one fell swoop instead of piecemeal. And the clever British came out smelling of roses, as the good guys.They also charged the entire cost of their war with Tipu to Travancore, paupering the latter, while maintaining the fiction that they were ‘protecting’ Kerala. Absolutely brilliant tactics. Nice transfer of wealth from India to Britain. This is similar to the American playbook in 1973, when OPEC suddenly tripled oil prices. The US didn’t invade, which is a surprise. Why? The reason is that though the US also had to pay higher prices (consumers and industry felt the pain), the Deep State (and the US economy) made most of it back by selling weapons aplenty to OPEC. It was, and is, a zero-sum dollar-recycling game for them. But it was, and is, also a massive transfer of wealth to OPEC from developing countries who could least afford it. The Third World took it on the chin. Once again, brilliantly done. Thus it is imperative for the US to maintain good relations with Saudi Arabia. Moral grandstanding by the Democrats has reached a point of seriously diminishing returns. Onwards to the CAATSA (Countering American Adversaries Through Sanctions Act). It is intended to deter other countries from doing things the US administration of the day doesn’t like, as in the fashionable ‘social-justice warrior’ tropes of the day, although sanctions are clearly a blunt instrument. India was threatened with these because it is buying Russian SA-400 anti-missile defense systems, instead of US analogs like THAAD and Patriot.As Gautam Sen of the London School of Economics said in a penetrating commentary on Why the West is so uncomfortable with a rising India and happy to sponsor its enemies, India is important to American plans for continued world dominance, unfortunately in a negative way as a permanent vassal, a low-caste neo-feudal flunky that exports raw materials and labor and imports manufactured goods. And weapons, especially weapons. There has been a full-court press on India to buy increasing amounts of US armaments, and the Ukraine war provided a good excuse to bully India (which is easily shamed by the West chiding it) into dumping perfectly good Russian weapons like the SA-400 (and presumably the Indo-Russian joint venture, BrahMos). India becoming a minor exporter of weapons (not just a big consumer) is not part of the plan. India has been the third-biggest weapons buyer in the world, accounting for 11% of global purchases in the recent past. Reversing itself on bullying India to buy nothing but American weapons is another tactical U-turn by the US.Evidently Atlanticist-minded Biden is not serious about the Indo-Pacific, as seen in his evisceration of the Quad. But it must have dawned on his foreign policy types that India and Japan are the cornerstones of any possible response to China’s rampant imperialism in the region. Besides, India has endured American sanctions and technology denials before (supercomputers, cryogenic engines) without collapsing; and probably will do so again. On balance, better not to piss India off totally. But Biden has no love lost for India: it was his Biden Amendment that messed up India’s cryogenic engine deal with Russia, which is the central theme of the movie Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. I wrote long ago about this in Who killed the ISRO’s cryogenic engine?, as it happened in my hometown. It ruined eminent aerospace engineer Nambi Narayanan’s career and delayed India’s heavy rocket GSLV by 19 years. As far as the Ukraine war is concerned, even the war-mongering Deep State mouthpiece The Economist, which was gung-ho in the beginning, is now making conciliatory noises. Foreign Affairs, a notably optimistic outlet, had a story titled Ukraine’s Implausible Theories of Victory: The Fantasy of Russian Defeat and the Case for Diplomacy.The fact is that Russia has (certainly in the short run) weathered the vaunted sanctions rather well, and the rouble is the best-performing currency against the dollar. The unintended consequence of the war has been widespread pain, especially in the ‘First World’, that is, Western Europe and North America. It would be better, as India has been saying all along, for there to be a negotiated settlement. A stalemate is still a win for Russia, as it has captured the disputed Russian-speaking parts of eastern Ukraine, created a land bridge to Crimea, and now controls the ports on the Sea of Azov. That is the most likely outcome, as Europeans tire of the war, and Biden’s plans to fight Russia to the last Ukrainian seem to have unraveled. It is time for the Great Reset. And that may not help the wokes; they are being consigned to the trash-heap of history at a record pace. It is the end of the Woke Century, after just a year and a half. And deservedly so. 1500 words, 25 July 2022 This is a public episode. If you would like to discuss this with other subscribers or get access to bonus episodes, visit rajeevsrinivasan.substack.com

It is another strike day and more travel chaos on railway services.Once more there's commuter misery as main lines into and around London are hobbled on the fourth day of nationwide rail strikes, with just a fifth of the usual services expected to run.Industrial action has left many services grinding to a halt, and freight's being given priority over passengers.More than 40,000 RMT union members working for Network Rail and 14 of England's 15 rail companies walked out for 24 hours until midnight tonight.There's more industrial action to come by the Aslef union on the railways on Saturday, while a Tube strike hitting Transport for London-run services is planned for next month.Meanwhile, London has the highest proportion of travel complaints to the Ombudsman.So, do rail strikes ever achieve their aim, and at what cost to passengers?The latest row is over eight per cent pay rises - or the lack thereof - pensions and working conditions, but have these kinds of strikes ever achieved anything for its participants - are they effective?To discuss why unions use strikes as a strategy, we're joined by one of Britain's leading transport experts, Tony Travers, professor at the School of Public Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science.We discuss the complexities of the negotiating process, Mayor Sadiq Khan's fabled “zero days of strikes” pledge back in 2016, government proposals to crack down on industrial action and what the future holds for passengers fares.

Skyscrapers! We can't help but find them fascinating. Some cities are full of skyscrapers, and others have none. Developers built a 70-story tower on that parcel, but the proposed building just down the street is only 30 stories. How do developers decide where to build skyscrapers and how tall they should be? And are they really a profitable investment, or simply a monument to individual power and ego? Gabriel Ahlfeldt joins us from the London School of Economics to talk about his research on skyscrapers, a comprehensive analysis that catalogs nearly every 150-meter-plus building in the world. We discuss how skyscrapers influence the built form of cities, far beyond their typical boundaries within the central business district, and what the data can tell us about their profitability, their appeal to residents and workers, and the role that planners play in shaping where they're found and how tall they go. Skyscrapers!

The Ottoman sultans reigned for more than 600 years. In that time, they conquered almost all of what we consider to be the Middle East today, as well as North Africa, parts of East Africa and Southeastern Europe. But over the course of the 19th century, their power waned, and the beleaguered empire finally collapsed after a bitter defeat in World War I. Their fall created the Middle East as we know it today: It opened the region to European colonialism, invigorated nationalism and ended the spiritual leadership of the caliphate. But one cannot understand why the empire's fall was so consequential — why an Ottomanless Middle East was such a big deal — without understanding how the Ottomans made their mark in the first place. Professor Marc David Baer is a historian at the London School of Economics and the author of “The Ottomans: Khans, Caesars, and Caliphs.” For this third installment of our series on the empire's fall, he joins New Lines's Faisal Al Yafai to explore the Ottoman world that was lost, for better or for worse, 100 years ago.

The markets toy with traders' emotions and their sense of self-worth, as they come to terms with just how much skill and ability is needed to succeed over the long-term in a challenge that people vastly underestimate.  In this episode AlphaMind co-host Mark Randall interviews fellow co-host Steven Goldstein about the lessons he has learned in over 35 years in Financial Markets, working as a professional trader and coaching traders, both professional and retail.Mark asks Steven about his journey from assistant on the trading desk of a Japanese bank in the 1980s. to working on the Proprietary desk of the Swiss Investment Bank Credit Suisse in the 1990s, and his time as a trader at the banking arm of American Express in the 2000s. They also discuss his subsequent decision to starting to work as a coach who helps traders develop their psychological abilities. Steven, who coaches some of the world's leading professional traders at some of the world's biggest Hedge Funds, as well as many smaller private and retail traders across all markets and trading styles, shares fascinating insights which listeners will learn so much from.
