Aflevering 161: Sanne de Boer. Vlak nadat journaliste Sanne de Boer naar een idyllisch dorp in Zuid-Italië verhuist wordt er in de buurt een man doodgeschoten. Het slachtoffer blijkt lid van de ‘Ndrangheta, de maffia uit Calabrië. De moord is het begin van een jarenlange zoektocht naar de mysterieuze ‘Ndrangheta. Hoe kon er in een sprookjesachtige uithoek van Italië zo'n onstuitbare criminele multinational ontstaan? Wat maakt deze maffia zo ouderwets en provinciaals en tegelijkertijd zo modern en werelds? In 'Mafiopoli' spreekt Sanne de Boer met dorpsgenoten, ondernemers, openbaar aanklagers en kroongetuigen. Ze schetst een onthullend en huiveringwekkend beeld van de uiterst geraffineerde maffia die ook in Nederland een stevige voet aan de grond heeft gekregen.

Multinational mining and mineral processing equipment manufacturer Sandvik launched its new high-tech head office facility, workshop and manufacturing complex today in Kempton Park, east of Johannesburg, on September 9. The facility was officially opened by President Cyril Ramaphosa. The launch of Sandvik's Khomanani facility is a fulfillment of the industrial giant's investment pledge of R350-million, made at the fourth South African Investment Conference six months ago. “Government is hard at work to create the conditions that will enable businesses – both big and small – to emerge, to grow, to access new markets, to create new products and to hire more employees. The establishment of this facility is testament to that commitment,” Ramaphosa said. The Khomanani manufacturing site is one of Sandvik's biggest and most advanced facilities globally, consolidating operations previously undertaken at five separate sites and accommodating 550 employees. For the first time ever, the company now has its soft rock, hard rock and surface businesses all under one roof. Khomanani, which occupies a 62 000 m2 site, can produce underground loaders with over 60% local content, allowing them to be designated as ‘Proudly South African'. Acting VP of Sandvik Southern Africa's sales area Reinhard Reinartz said Sandvik's mining divisions supply the industry's needs with equipment, parts and services, with the aim to fuel growth in a sustainable way. “Our role is not only as an original-equipment manufacturer (OEM) to our customers, but also to be good corporate citizens. Hence, we are investing in localisation, and this new assembly facility relocates activities from China and Finland to South Africa,” he stated. Localisation is a cornerstone of Sandvik's operations, which supports government's aim to build domestic production capacity to supply local and foreign markets, to support broader economic development and to create more jobs. The investment by Sandvik in local manufacturing capacity is an important vote of confidence in South Africa and its mining sector, the President noted. “With industrialisation and manufacturing being essential pillars of South Africa's Economic Reconstruction and Recovery Plan, it is gratifying to see this commitment turned into reality here in Gauteng,” he said. Reinartz said the decision to invest in South Africa was a simple one. “South Africa is still one of the biggest mining markets in the world, with resources including coal, platinum group metals, gold and iron-ore. With both surface and underground mining, there is no question about investing here,” he enthused. The expansion of local production will make South Africa's economy more inclusive and create more opportunities for new entrants into the industrial sector. Greater investment in mining, localisation and beneficiation all contribute to extending mine life, to increasing mining exports, to skills development and to the creation of employment. The President pointed out that the mining machinery and equipment sector also has significant linkages into other parts of the economy. The companies supplying equipment to the mining industry have important backward linkages to major assembly suppliers, sub-assembly and parts suppliers, specialist component suppliers and raw material suppliers. “Increasing local production will contribute significantly to the revival of South Africa's manufacturing industry,” he said. The machines being assembled at Khomanani are the 12 t LS312 flameproof loader for underground coal operations, as well as the LH115 and LH208 loaders, respectively of 5.5 t and 7.7 t capacity, for underground hard rock mining. Not only are these machines being supplied to the Southern African market but Sandvik can also export them. They are produced to the exact same quality standards as Sandvik machines manufactured at its overseas factories. Moreover, the company is able to produce them at a cost which is very competitive by global standa...

Straight out of college, Joseph Landes landed a job at Microsoft and stayed for 23 years, growing into many roles and living in many countries throughout his time at the company. Upon meeting his current CEO, Vadim Vladimirskiy, he left Microsoft to start a very different journey. Joseph became the chief revenue officer of Nerdio, a technology firm that helps MSPs build cloud environments using Microsoft Azure. “Drop the dinosaur and get the goat!” he says, referring to when clients leave larger competitors for Nerdio because the company offers a better product at a lower cost. In this episode, we dive into what made Joseph stay with Microsoft for so long, and the adjustments he had to make moving from a massive organization to a startup. He talks about the even-keel mindset that one must have when running a startup and the importance of the entire company sharing that mindset. Carol and Joseph also discuss a challenge facing Nerdio: competition with other technology companies for talent. Joseph likes to use the concept of drivers and passengers when deciding who to hire; “drivers” refer to talent who constantly strive to get work done and are proactive in nature, no matter their role, and “passengers” refer to those who clock in and clock out. They talk about how to identify drivers from the very first interview and look for something Joseph calls the generosity gene.

When a multi-national technology company needs to manage cyber risk on a global scale while not losing sight of the regional and local aspects of the business, one way to accomplish this is through regional and global committees comprised of multiple business functions.A mixed global and regional view can help to determine budgetary needs to ensure security management and operations function in support of the business in a way that remains focused on minimizing the threat and impact of a cyber incident. Doing so also encourages a culture of security maturity where the business recognizes the value that the security function brings to the table as the company defines, architects, and builds its business, operations, and technology stack that makes everything possible.Join us for an in-depth conversation with the Chief Security Officer (CSO) at Huawei Technologies USA, Andy Purdy, as we explore how an organization can better prepare its security teams, operations, and committees to ensure each is poised to be resilient and sustainable for the bigger picture and the long term.____________________________GuestAndy PurdyChief Security Officer (CSO) at Huawei Technologies USA [@Huawei]On LinkedIn | https://www.linkedin.com/in/andy-purdy-9b1b554/On Twitter | https://twitter.com/andy_purdy____________________________This Episode's SponsorsPentera | https://itspm.ag/pentera-tyuwEdgescan | https://itspm.ag/itspegwebAre you interested in sponsoring an ITSPmagazine Channel?

In this HCI Podcast episode, Dr. Jonathan H. Westover talks with Raj Grover about acquiring and retaining key, top talented, team members and managing a multinational team. See the video here: https://youtu.be/kSc7M1NocuA. Since starting his first company at the age of 22, Raj ( https://ca.linkedin.com/in/raj-grover-86a182185 ) has established himself as one of Canada's foremost business strategists and deal makers. He is the founder of High Tide and its subsidiary companies of Valiant Distribution and Canna Cabana, while also being the co-founder of High Tide's subsidiary, Famous Brandz. Through organic growth and strategic acquisitions, Raj has grown High Tide from one small shop of 2 employees in 2009, into one of Canada's largest cannabis retailers with over 1,000 amazing team members and business interests spanning North America and Europe.

During the summer of 2020, tens of millions of people took to the streets to participate in the largest uprising in this country's history. From the smallest towns to the biggest cities, working people across races, genders and ages joined together to demand justice for all victims of police terror. The national spotlight was primarily on Black victims of police terror like George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and many more. But the righteous anger did not only stem from Black people. The rebellion of Black people brought millions of working class people from every racial background in the streets, shaking the racist foundation of this country. And when a racist, sexist, anti-Asian massacre in Atlanta took the lives of 8 of our working-class siblings, it wasn't just Asian people in the streets. The crowds, standing shoulder to shoulder with each other in the face of racist hate were multinational. The solidarity demonstrated throughout the summer of 2020 and beyond remains an undeniably powerful force, that achieved concessions previously thought to be impossible. For many, the heated struggle in the streets demonstrated not only the possibility, but the necessity of solidarity in fighting for our liberation. For the ruling class — which benefits from keeping our class divided — that solidarity was a threat to the status quo. The ruling class has long attempted to thwart working-class solidarity by pitting racial groups against one another, a history that includes dividing Black and Asian people.

India Policy Watch #1: To Catch A Falling Rupee Insights on burning policy issues in India— RSJThe Indian rupee this week declined to an all-time low as it went beyond 80 per dollar. For reasons that aren’t always clear to me, this kind of thing makes a lot of news in India. I mean, it was 79.9 the week before. There isn’t a yawning gap between that and 80. Yet opinion pieces are written, cartoons sketched, and old tweets of macroeconomic theorists like Akshay Kumar, Juhi Chawla and Sri Sri (Sri?) Ravishankar are dug out to contrast their current reactions to this phenomenon with their past asides. The WhatsApp factory also rolls out their new models that suggest how a strong dollar is bad for the US economy and how this is some kind of a switch and bait move that we are making on them. Somewhere in many of our heads, the strength of the Indian rupee is no longer subject to the dynamics of the currency market. Like many things these days, it too is anchored to our self-respect. And since our national clarion call is desh nahin jhukne doonga (won’t let the country down), we then start working on the narrative that shows all of this in a warm, positive glow. All in a day in the life of India.Anyway, I thought it would be useful to take this moment to appreciate the winds that are buffeting it, the long-term view of what will actually strengthen the rupee and then zoom out a bit to appreciate what’s happening to the US economy and what it could mean for India. The Safety Of Dollar We will start with why has the rupee gone to 80 a dollar? The simple answer is the US dollar has been more in demand since the start of the Ukraine war than before. This is true for all currencies, not just the rupee, as the chart below shows.There are reasons for this. The 40-year high inflation print that the US is witnessing month over month has turned the Fed hawkish. It is likely to raise rates by another 75 bps in its meeting next week, and the consensus suggests the benchmark rates will be around 3.4 per cent by the end of the year. These rate hikes make storing money in dollars more attractive. This potent cocktail of uncertainty around the Ukraine war, the high oil and commodity prices that make emerging markets more vulnerable and the prospect of a global recession is starting to give global fund managers a massive hangover. Their most obvious response: flight to the safety of the US dollar. The dollar demand has gone up as foreign portfolio investors have checked out of domestic equities across the world. In India, we have had over ₹2.3 trillion of outflow from the equity market so far this year. Things would have been worse had it not been for the domestic investors (mutual funds and insurers) who invested about ₹1.4 trillion during this period. The price of oil—averaging over US$ 120 or so during this year—has made things worse because we import over 90 per cent of our requirements. The across-the-board rise in commodity prices has further increased our import bill. Almost simultaneously, the high rate of inflation, the rise in interest rates and a prospect of a recession have meant our exports are beginning to soften. The commentary from our software services giants suggests the demand pipeline isn’t what it used to be. This might also show up in other export-dominated sectors as the steep rise in interest rates starts to kill off growth in developed markets. This has meant the consensus forecast among analysts for the current account deficit has inched up to 3 per cent for the year-end. We will need more dollars to support that kind of deficit. That apart, our own inflation numbers have remained high, and we are running a negative real interest rate (the difference between interest rate and rate of inflation). This will continue to support riskier assets and reward consumption that will feed back into inflation. So, expect further interest rate hikes, and that will impact growth. All of this indicates the dollar strengthening against the rupee is here to stay.Propping Up The RupeeWhat can be done to address this? This is market dynamics at play. There are too many interlinked factors here. Beyond a point, there are only tweaks that you can do in the short term to support the currency. The RBI has tried to ensure that the depreciation is orderly and gradual, which is the best it can do now. It has increased dollar inflows by loosening norms in multiple areas, helping curb volatility. The raft of measures taken here shows how many short term levers are available with a central bank to manage currency volatility. These included removing the interest rate restrictions on banks for foreign currency and non-resident deposits. Such deposits have also been exempted from the statutory liquidity requirements that Banks need to carry for their deposits. This has allowed banks to hike their savings rates for such deposits by almost 75 bps. This will attract dollar deposits from non-resident Indians. The RBI has also relaxed foreign investments in debt instruments and allowed the use of overseas foreign currency borrowing for lending domestically in foreign currency. Even the amount of external commercial borrowing businesses can do through the automatic route has been doubled to US$ 1.5 billion. These immediate measures will smoothen the flow and increase the supply of dollars. The idea here is to weather through the Fed interest rate hike storm for the next two quarters and then take stock. The RBI also made an interesting move last week that was reported as the ‘internationalisation’ of the rupee. It allowed special accounts (rupee Vostro accounts) to pay and settle exports and imports in rupees. Further, the surplus in these accounts could be invested in government T-bills and securities. What does this mean? Simply put, if Indian firms can find counterparties who are willing to trade with them in rupees, they can do so more easily than before. On the face of it, this means very little. Because there aren’t many global firms who would want to settle their trade in a currency like the rupee that will depreciate in the long-term and which isn’t useful for trade with non-Indian partners. But it allows us to trade with Russia without getting the dollar involved. In fact, it is both an economic move and a geopolitical one. We run a trade deficit with Russia. We can now pay for Russian oil in rupees. Russia can use those rupees to buy our exports. The surplus in these accounts can be used to buy government bonds. So we save on buying more dollars to settle this trade, and we create demand for government bonds because the surplus in this account will be invested there. Seems like a neat solution, and I guess the US and the west won’t mind because we have pointed out their hypocrisy on Russian gas and Saudi oil more than a few times now. Apart from this, the government has done its usual quota of excise duty tweaks to manage the situation. We have increased duties on the export of petroleum products and limited sugar and wheat exports. And we have cut import duties on key raw materials and on cooking oils to manage inflation. These won’t add to much, but it gives an impression that something’s been done to address inflation. When inflation stabilises, we will take ages to dismantle these duties. That is an old and different story. That takes care of the short term. In the long run, the rupee's strength depends on the fundamentals of our economy. We must run a current account shortfall below 2 per cent, bring down the fiscal deficit and debt to GDP ratio that have gone up significantly in the past two years and keep inflation in the four per cent range, which was the RBI mandate. All of this is hard work and will need the government to translate its words into action. Structural reforms in labour and capital have been pending for ages, the infrastructure push promised in the last budget is still in the works, and fiscal discipline is a tad out of fashion. If we continue to insist on pegging our self-respect to the rupee, then we must know what to demand from the government. Where Next?Lastly, where does the global economy go from here? Well, it is clear that the Fed and other central banks were wrong in their assessment in 2021 that the inflation was transitory. They could have raised rates then, and we wouldn’t have seen the serious inflationary pressure we have now seen for the last six months. This isn’t hindsight. There were more than a handful of sceptics about the notion of transitory inflation. So, the question is, now that the Fed has gone into the territory of whatever it takes to control inflation, what kind of a landing will we have? Will it be a short and mildly painful recession, or are we going to be in for a hard landing? As some are saying, it is possible that we will see the peak of inflation in the next few months, and then the rate hike impact will start to bring it down quickly to more comfortable levels within a year. We could then have a rate reversion cycle begin as early as the end of 2023. That is what the optimists are seeing today. However, it is possible that there’s a hard landing. That is not just inflation taking longer to tame, but the sustained high-interest environment kills growth and puts the financial system under enormous stress. There’s a possibility that a perfect storm of decline in investment, reduction in consumption and a recession could hurt incomes around the world. The pandemic saw a significant rise in debt levels for both firms and households. A scenario where interest rates stay high and incomes start coming under stress would spell bad news for the ability of these entities to service their debt. A cycle of default could then start and put the entire financial system under stress. We might not have a GFC (2008) like moment, but we could be in that vicinity in future. We have been so used to quantitative easing, low inflation and low-interest rate scenario in the last decade that it is difficult to envisage an alternative where things are radically different. Yet, as history has shown, you ignore long-tail risks at your own peril. As a parting shot, the then finance minister Manmohan Singh’s response in the Rajya Sabha addressing the fears of devaluation of the rupee needs a revisit:Let me say that in this country there seems to be a strange conspiracy between the extreme left and extreme right that there is something immoral or dishonourable about changing the exchange rate. But that is not the tradition. If you look at the whole history of India’s independence struggle before 1947 all our national leaders were fighting against the British against keeping the exchange rate of the Rupee unduly high. Why did the British keep the exchange rate of the Rupee unduly high? It was because they wanted this country to remain backward and they did not want this country to industrialise. They wanted the country to be an exporter of primary products against which all Indian economists protested. If you look at Indian history right from 1900 onwards to 1947, this was a recurrent plea of all Indian economists—not to have an exchange rate which is so high that Indian cannot export, that India cannot industrialise. But I am really surprised that something which is meant to increase the country’s exports and encourage its industrialisation is now considered as something anti-national.India Policy Watch #2: Q.E.D.Insights on burning policy issues in India— Pranay KotasthaneNowadays, it seems like just one government agency is burning the midnight oil: the Enforcement Directorate (ED). It’s never out of the headlines.There’s data to back this claim too. Responding to a Lok Sabha question earlier this year, the Minister of State (Finance) revealed that while during 2004-14, 112 searches were carried out by the ED, this number stands at 2974 in the eight years since 2014, a twenty-six-fold increase! Forget for a moment that the conviction rate of ED in raids conducted under the Foreign Exchange Management Act is merely 0.5 per cent.Whether it is political parties in the opposition, Chinese companies, fugitive economic offenders, or non-profits, the ED has become the de-facto brahmastra.Structurally, ED is a law enforcement body deriving powers from a wide range of laws. It was constituted as the “Enforcement Unit” way back in 1956. And since foreign exchange control was a big obsession back then, it primarily investigated cases arising from the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act (FERA), 1947. Then came the Foreign Exchange Management Act in 1999, the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in 2005, and the Fugitive Economic Offenders Act in 2018. A wide remit backed by labyrinthine economic laws made it easily weaponisable. Now, it is well-known that many law enforcement agencies in India are politicised. Neither is ED the first one nor the last. In the naughties, the “CBI raids” served the same purpose. Exploring the pervasive politicisation of the ED, Pratap Bhanu Mehta writes:The use of the ED has three purposes. The first is intimidation. The second is to keep the narrative of the old corrupt regime boiling. This is not a difficult proposition to sell to the public. But the third is to reveal the sheer self-absorption of the Opposition. “For my friends, everything; for my enemies, the law.” said a former Peruvian Field Marshal Óscar Benavides. That is precisely what seems to be happening here.Domestic politics aside, two Chinese mobile phone companies have recently come under ED investigation. In response, China’s foreign ministry spokesperson had this to say:The frequent investigations by the Indian side into Chinese enterprises not only disrupt the enterprises’ normal business activities and damage the goodwill of the enterprises, but also impedes the improvement of business environment in India and chills the confidence and willingness of market entities from other countries, including Chinese enterprises to invest and operate in India.Keeping aside the hypocrisy of China’s moralising, the spokesperson makes an important point. If the narrative goes out that economic crime investigations are being used for political purposes, India will pay a big price. Retrospective taxation was the poster child for India’s economic mismanagement last decade. We don’t need another deterrent puncturing investment dreams this decade.What could bring law enforcement agencies under control? Are there structural checks and balances that prevent political misuse? I don’t know. But an essential component of strengthening India’s Republic has to be to make investigative agencies truly autonomous from executive control. Not(PolicyWTF): The Question of ChoiceThis section looks at egregious public policies. Policies that make you go: WTF, Did that really happen? - Pranay Kotasthane"Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." This Forrest Gump quote is equally applicable to the Indian judiciary. On most days, it comes out with verdicts that just follow the prevailing social trend. But, there are also those rare moments when the judiciary stands up to defend the Republic from the Democracy. Take what happened last week. In 2019, the Central Consumer Protection Authority (CCPA) —a new regulatory body—was formed to protect consumer rights. Earlier this month, the CCPA, in its infinite wisdom, issued guidelines that prevent hotels and restaurants from levying service charges. The guidelines thundered:No collection of service charge shall be done by any other name. No hotel or restaurant shall force a consumer to pay service charge and shall clearly inform the consumer that service charge is voluntary, optional and at consumer’s discretion… No restriction on entry or provision of services based on collection of service charge shall be imposed on consumers. Service charge shall not be collected by adding it along with the food bill and levying GST on the total amount.Why would the Indian State want to invest resources and time in changing these small matters is an always-relevant confounding question. But this time, the courts came to a partial rescue. The Delhi High Court stayed the guidelines. The judge even had a libertarian statement to go with the ruling. He said:If you don't want to pay, don't enter the restaurant. It is ultimately a question of choice.Music to my ears. Information asymmetry is not a problem as long as the service charges are known to the consumer beforehand. There is no market failure. The State can move on. How I wish the courts applied this new-found virtue of choice to other areas such as:If you don't want to get offended, don't read the book. It is ultimately a question of choice. No need to ban the book. If you don't want to pay, don't enter the movie theatre. It is ultimately a question of choice. No need to cap movie tickets.If you don’t like what others say about you, don’t talk to them. It is ultimately a question of choice. No need for defamation laws.You get the drift. Don’t make the State a tool to address your pet grievance. It has bigger fish to fry. (And let it apply service charges for the fried fish.)Global Policy Watch: The Three InternetsInsights on policy issues making news around the world— Pranay KotasthaneMany editions ago, I linked to one of Yiqin Fu’s articles on the Chinese internet. There’s so much about it that’s different beyond the fact that the State tightly controls the information flow there. For instance, Fu explains that the Chinese internet is different from the Western internet in these respects:One, search engines (and not just Google) are hardly used. People read primarily through social media feeds. And two, the complete dominance of super-apps:Take WeChat as an example. It is home to the vast majority of China’s original writing, and yet: 1. It doesn’t allow any external links; 2. Its posts are not indexed by search engines such as Google or Baidu, and its own search engine is practically useless; 3. You can’t check the author’s other posts if you open the page outside of the WeChat app. In other words, each WeChat article is an orphan, not linked to anything else on the Internet, not even the author’s previous work.The result of a lack of rediscovery means that knowledge creation, reflection, and historical context-setting are disincentivised. This resembles some parts of the Indian internet but is not quite the same. This architecture also means that people are pushed towards tracking the latest social media trend, with little or no incentive to create and read time-invariant content, such as blogs, articles, and papers without news pegs.So, there are three broad internet prototypes:The Western one: primary access is through desktop/laptop, not super-app based, search-engine driven, high discoverability of older articles, and email-based.The Chinese one: primary access is through the mobile phone, super-app driven, low discoverability, and instant-messaging based.The Indian one: The elites see an internet that’s a mix of the Western one and the Chinese one minus the censorship, while the non-elites are experiencing something much closer to the Chinese one. Forget geopolitics for a moment. And consider the impact of these three internet prototypes on their respective users. Will their cognitive effects be different? If yes, in what way? This is a fascinating question to which I have no good answers yet. What do you think? Another downside to skipping desktop is that weak ties built around emails are never formed. I don’t have data on Chinese employees’ modes of communication, but I wouldn’t be surprised if 90% of work communication is done over instant messaging. Multinational firms still use email, although when I asked on Chinese social media, my readers complained that emails often went unread. It seems like in the Chinese workplace, instant messaging still reigns supreme.Fu argues that the result is that weak ties through cold emails are seldom formed. Again, not very different from the case in India where we need to have a phone number in order to form a weak link now.

The US dollar index hit a 20-year high of 109 this week. This is creating increasing pain for other countries, especially those with Eurodollar loans, as servicing those is becoming more expensive — at the same time that import costs are rising. Multinational companies are also feeling the squeeze, as their overseas revenue declines due to weakening demand and increasingly unfavorable exchange rates. Somewhat ironically, this is happening at the same time when US inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index, is spiking to a 41-year high of 9.1%. Financial advisor Lance Roberts doesn't see much reason for the dollar strength to abate anytime soon. So what will be the most likely repercussions from this? For everything that mattered to markets this week, watch this week's Market Recap featuring Lance Roberts. https://youtu.be/IqK_D3rRV7o

1) Dr. Busler gives his insight on how we got here. Have we reached peak Inflation as commodity prices have fallen significantly? 1A) Consumers expect Inflation of 6.8% one year from now and 3.6% in three years. 2) We have an Inverted Yield Curve with a 2 year / 10 year spread at - .177 basis points with the 2 year note at 3.122 and the 10 year Note at 2.945. the spread doubled today from .085 yesterday. We'll discuss the implications and what it means. 2A The dollar continues strengthening as rates rise. Will the Euro go lower against the dollar now that we are at parity? Multinational companies most effected. 3) Oil is below $98 per barrel. Why? Producers are producing near capacity and there is a slowdown in demand primarily through China. 4) Builders are slashing home prices and slowing construction as buyers pull back. Home price increases slowed slightly in April year over year to 20.4% and further slowed in May. June may be the first month post peak with prices actually dip month over month. June actual sales of homes are down 31% year over year. Cancellations have jumped and in some areas 'sales have fallen off a cliff" according to local Realtors. 5) Small business sentiment has plunged to a 48 year low as Inflation is the biggest concern by far. 6) Giant tech companies Alphabet and Microsoft and slowing hiring or marginally reducing staff. 7) Why do we still have 11M job openings? 8) Why is Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen in Asia ginning up support for a cap on Russian oil prices? Aren't the risks much greater than the potential reward? How would this work in theory? Sanctions on Russia have had only nominal success. 9) What effect is the Crypto collapse having on the over all economy. Founders of Crypto firm 3AC are missing and the company is in bankruptcy. They had $10B in Assets under management in March.

Sean: And now I'm wondering, what am I missing when it comes to your leadership? How do you lead all the way from Singapore? You're leading a multinational team from different places, mostly from the Philippines, but from different places. How do people see you as a leader? How do you build on that? Wouter: That's a very difficult question to answer because that's going to evolve throughout, right? I've led teams for a long time. I'm sure my style has changed quite a bit over time. Also, I feel a little bit uncomfortable, you know, kind of talking about my own style and, you know, let me just give it a go without trying to be too pretentious, maybe a couple of things that matter to me. I do believe a lot and lead by example, I do think that what I don't like in people is when they boss people around. I don't believe in that whatsoever. I don't believe in massive structures in companies. I like people that just work together. I've always been part of a football team, for instance. Right. And I was a captain of the team. But that doesn't mean people report to me necessarily. That just means like, you know, they probably listen to you a bit more and you have to earn that right to be listened to. You still have to sell, right? People forget this. I have a very different view on sales for instance, like, am I into sales? 100%. I'm selling every day. I'm selling to my co-founder new ideas that I need to align with. I don't believe in basically telling people what to do. I want them to buy into it because then they're all in, right? You listen to people's ideas and make sure you consider everyone, give everybody a chance to speak just to staff in general, to clients, to vendors. You're always selling. And I think that's an important part. I think people forget that buy-in is very crucial. That's one thing I believe in, at least. As I said, there's a cultural component to it that matters to me. But I think also one thing is fairness is important. Like, you know, it's not my way or the highway. You know, let everyone have a chance to prove themselves and convince me of doing anything else, right? But backed up with data, I will trust my gut more than yours unless you back it up. That's something I always tell people, right? Why would I trust your opinion more than mine if it we're both an opinion, but come with a convincing argument, I will listen for sure. But don't debate with me on whatever its feelings. Right. So, I'm quite black and white, so yeah, I don't look - I am very unstructured on my answer, I'm just showing things that come to mind because I don't really - I kind of go with the flow a little bit. One thing I also realized I would say is, that you have to adjust your style to the people that you have. Don't think that you can be a person and follow a certain method and rules and expect everyone to just accept it. And that would just work for everyone. You have to say things differently to different people. You have to understand how people think and then make sure you do things the right way to achieve your ultimate objectives. And that just takes time a little bit. You'll mature and you'll also build more chemistry with people, and you'll adapt to that. - - - Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/leadershipstack Join our community and ask questions here: from.sean.si/discord Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/leadershipstack Leadership Stack Merch: https://leadershipstack.com/shop/- - - Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/leadershipstack Join our community and ask questions here: from.sean.si/discord Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/leadershipstack Leadership Stack Merch: https://leadershipstack.com/shop/

Our forests are being stolen! One tree at a time! And it can all be blamed on poverty. After logging towns are surrounded by protected areas and all of the industry has stopped, what are the people who have created a life there for generations supposed to do? It is their identity, who they are, it is all they know, logging, and it has been taken away. Some of those desperate people continue to do what they know, and it is costing the rest of society dearly.

For an old growth to be stolen has quite an impact on the environment and a forest's ability to adapt.”TakeawaysTree sleuthing (8.43)The first time Lyndsie heard about tree poaching was when one of the largest red cedars in Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park on Vancouver Island was poached in 2012. Following the trails (17.21)On Vancouver Island, Lyndsie shadowed natural resource officers and discovered that old growth douglas fir and cedar are the most poached there. Drugs and poaching (21.33)There is widespread drug use in the poaching community, so the poacher takes the wood directly to the drug dealer. The damage (29.24)In the USA, poaching of forest service land is valued at 20 million dollars a year, accounting for 1 in 10 felled trees being poached, which has reduced the amount of old growth left. The person, the poacher (34.15)The poachers shared the challenges of living in a community that never recovered from stopping industrial logging in their interviews with LyndsieLumber families (37.49)Lyndsie shares that one of the towns she went to had families who had moved there for logging and saw it as a part of their lineage and identity. Revenge poaching (50.25)In the pacific northwest, logging towns that were once stable economies degenerated into hubs of unemployment, homelessness and drug use after logging was stopped. Million missteps (56.05)Lyndsie believes that the poachers need to be listened to and systems changed since many mistakes have been made over the history of conservation to lead to this place. Multinational economy (1.01.01)Lyndsie found some similarities in her research in Peru and BC. Immediate financial security from poaching has taken away from the consequences of reducing old growth. Whose land? (1.05.29)Hiring people in desperate poverty to poach a tree on a foreign land who may not question what they are being asked to do, damages the Indigenous people's ancestral property. Trees changing hands (1.09.39)Lyndsie outlines the many places a tree goes when it is poached, and how difficult it is for investigators to intercept the process, due to its transport process and proving the source. Community (1.19.01)There is a community forest right outside Lyndsie's door and she sees community forests as providing a way to conserve that also incorporates use. A perfect storm (1.25.58)A poacher acknowledged that the history of clearing land in North America is associated with disenfranchising Indigenous peoples.

Karina is an independent director of the Italian multinational energy company, Eni. She also chairs the Governing Board of the Climate Governance Initiative and is a Governor of the CFA Institute where she chairs the ESG Working Group of the Investment Sub-Committee and serves on the Governance Committee. She is best known as a corporate governance expert but not many corporate governance experts become an independent director of a major multinational energy company. She's a climate activist but not many climate activists serve on the board of an oil and gas company and succeed in changing its culture. On this episode of Outside In she talks with Jon Lukomnik about these achievements, having her freedom threatened by a corrupt prosecutor, spending her intellectual focus on the existential crisis of climate risk and giving emotional support to refugees fleeing conflicts in broken states.
In the modern age the United States rarely ever enters a conflict alone. Fighting alongside an ally or as part of a coalition magnifies capabilities and lethality and often more importantly brings legitimacy and access. But the coordination and communication necessary for successful multi-domain operations is intense. Add multiple different languages, disparate communication and networking systems and simple deconfliction can become a herculean task or result in a simple but drastic reduction of interaction and interoperability. A BETTER PEACE welcomes Aaron Dixon to the studio to explain how many of the network issues of coalition operations in the MDO can be resolved, without breaking the bank. Aaron joins podcast editor Ron Granieri to discuss why the solution to the problem doesn't involve newer, better, faster technology, at least not in the immediate future. He argues for more disciplined, targeted training and refusing to ignore issues in the exercise environment. EDITOR'S CORRECTION: When introducing our guest Ron states that he commanded the 3rd Security Force Assistance BRIGADE. He actually commanded 3rd Squadron, 3rd Security Force Assistance Brigade (SFAB).
According to CybeReady, during such turbulent times, one should regard all emails with extra caution and double-check the sender's address carefully. Beware of requests that ask for technical assistance such as running software or helping to take down websites. These might not only be illegal but may also be used to hack systems on the corporate network. Try to remember that during times of crisis, there is an increase in phishing attempts of all kinds as hackers take advantage of the situation. In this circumstance, employees need to stay updated from both a news and computing perspective. To be proactive in the defense of computing environments, our security experts recommend: 1. Personal computer and phones: Install the latest operating system and security updates. 2. Implement 2FA/MFA: Use a phone number or authentication app as the second factor of authentication to all important applications, social media accounts (Facebook/Meta, Linkedin, Twitter, etc.), and personal email accounts. Backup email and ensure it is recoverable. 3. Change Passwords: If you are reusing a password in sites that hold your personal information, it is a good time to change your passwords. 4. Support a Culture of Security: Train your employees continuously, advise friends and family to do the same, and take an active role in creating a safer internet. 5. Defend Work from Home Environments: Install the operating system and security updates. If these are available you should see a notification on your computer or phone. Especially important to business continuity in these times of uncertainty is the need for automated cybersecurity training that adapts to employee educational needs and accelerates the learning process.

Putin has to be one of the worst nationalists ever. When his critics and supporters call him an "ultranationalist", what they really mean is that he's a "multinationalist." According to Putin, Arabs and Muslims are an inseparable part of the Russian cultural code and identity, without whom the "multinational Russian people" would be worse off. Sounds like something Joe Biden would say about America being a melting pot, doesn't it? Let's take a look at the role of Muslims in the modern day Russia... This is EPISODE 866 of So to Speak w/ Jared Howe!
BIO: Nattaphol Vimolchalao is the Chief Executive Officer of Siam Rajathanee Public Company Limited, an outsourcing service. STORY: Nattaphol thought that hiring an executive from a world-class medical device company to run his startup was the way to make it succeed. However, though experienced, the executive had zero experience running a startup. The company went under within no time. LEARNING: You need more than experience to run a startup. Just because someone has experience managing a multinational company doesn't mean they'll be good at running a startup. “You may be successful in managing one type of business, but that doesn't mean that you will be successful at managing another.”Nattaphol Vimolchalao Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/nattaphol/ (Nattaphol Vimolchalao) is the Chief Executive Officer of https://www.siamrajathanee.com/th (Siam Rajathanee Public Company Limited), an outsourcing service. The company started as an agricultural business and later expanded to outsourcing services. Now, it is the leading outsourcing service company in Thailand. Nattaphol has a Bachelor's degree in Physics from the University of Manchester. He finished his Master's degree in Technology Policy Micro and Nanotechnology Enterprise from the University of Cambridge. Worst investment everAfter university, Nattaphol started a medical device trading firm and invested 10 million baht. He didn't have experience running a business, but he thought he would be able to make it because he went to one of the best schools in the world. Nattaphol did everything from marketing, sales, and even hiring the first employee who happened to be an executive from a world-class medical device company. The employee had never worked in a small startup, and the way she went about running Nattaphol's business was wrong. She spent a lot of resources hiring unnecessary employees, not understanding that the startup didn't have a substantial human resource budget as a big company would. Cash flow was a problem from the beginning, and because Nattaphol didn't keep track of the finances, the business was out of money within no time. Lessons learnedManaging a startup, a midsized company, a listed company, or a multinational company is different. You may be successful in managing one type of business, but that doesn't mean that you'll succeed at managing another. Andrew's takeawaysWhen setting up a business, be careful about partnering with people who have experience running a big company because they may not be suitable for running a startup. It would help if you had more than brains and expertise to succeed in business. It's a combination of how you work with people, the products you choose, how you build out a sales team, etc. No.1 goal for the next 12 monthsNattaphol's goal for the next 12 months is to scale his company's technology divisions to have a sizable income. Parting words “Don't give up. To be honest, like, my worst failure is the thing that drives me forward now.”Nattaphol Vimolchalao [spp-transcript] Connect with Nattaphol Vimolchalaohttps://www.linkedin.com/in/nattaphol/ (LinkedIn) https://www.siamrajathanee.com/th (Website) Andrew's bookshttps://amzn.to/3qrfHjX (How to Start Building Your Wealth Investing in the Stock Market) https://amzn.to/2PDApAo (My Worst Investment Ever) https://amzn.to/3v6ip1Y (9 Valuation Mistakes and How to Avoid Them) https://amzn.to/3emBO8M (Transform Your Business with Dr.Deming's 14 Points) Andrew's online programshttps://valuationmasterclass.com/ (Valuation Master Class) https://academy.astotz.com/courses/how-to-start-building-your-wealth-investing-in-the-stock-market (How to Start Building Your Wealth Investing in the Stock Market) https://academy.astotz.com/courses/finance-made-ridiculously-simple (Finance Made Ridiculously Simple) https://academy.astotz.com/courses/gp (Become a Great Presenter and Increase Your Influence)...
