    Obesity is a global problem, but more people are getting fatter in developing countries than anywhere else. If current trends continue, obese children will soon outnumber those who are undernourished. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.st/2rAAQPL People are fatter than ever. Obesity has more than doubled since 1980. But the biggest rise is in the developing world. Anyone with a body mass index, or BMI, over 30 is considered obese. The higher your BMI, the greater your risk of developing weight-related diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Nearly half of the world’s overweight and obese children under five years old, live in Asia. And in Africa, the number of overweight children under five has increased by nearly 50% since 2000.

  • The Geo-Graphics Mini Mac Index Deep Fries The Economist's Big Mac Index

    The Economist magazine’s famous Big Mac Index uses the price of McDonald’s Big Macs around the world, expressed in a common currency (U.S. dollars), to estimate the extent to which currencies are over- or under-valued. But you can’t buy a cheap burger in Beijing and eat it in New York, so it's less likely that global burger prices would converge. That's why Benn Steil, Senior Fellow and Director of International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations, created the Mini Mac Index, which compares the price of iPad minis across countries. iPad minis are a global product that, unlike Big Macs, can move quickly and cheaply around the world, which helps equalize prices.

Human development is about the real freedom ordinary people have to decide who to be, what to do, and how to live. The human development concept was developed by economist Mahbub ul Haq. He believed that the commonly used measure of Gross Domestic Product failed to adequately measure well-being. Working with Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen and other economists, in 1990 Dr. Haq published the first Human Development Report, which was commissioned by the United Nations Development Programme. The Human Development Index (HDI) is a composite statistic of life expectancy, education, and per capita income indicators, which are used to rank countries human de...

It does this by measuring the competitiveness of tax systems in the OECD’s 34 countries based on over 40 tax policy variables in five categories: corporate income taxes, individual taxes, consumption taxes, property taxes, and the treatment of foreign earnings. The United States has the 3rd least competitive tax code in the OECD, trailed only by Portugal and France. Estonia, New Zealand, and Switzerland have the most competitive tax codes among developed nations.

    In which Adriene and Jacob teach you about how and why prices rise. Sometimes prices rise as a result of inflation, which is a pretty normal thing for economies to do. We'll talk about how across the board prices rise over time, and how economists track inflation. Bubbles are a pretty normal thing for humans to do. One item, like tulips or beanie babies or houses or tech startups experience a rapid rise in prices. This is often accompanied by speculation, a bunch of outrageous profits, and then a nasty crash when the bubble bursts. People get excited about rising prices, and next thing you know, people are trading their life savings for a tulip bulb. Crash Course is on Patreon!

    A lot of wealth is gone, and there is no reason for it to come back. That was the summation of Robert C. Merton, one of three Nobel Prizewinning economists who joined intellectual forces last week at the School of Managements three-day Future of Life Cycle Saving and Investing Conference. Merton, along with Robert Solow and Paul Samuelson, took questions about the impending retirement savings crisis from PBS NewsHour correspondent Paul Solman at an October 23 after-dinner panel discussion, What Retirement Means to Me, that will be aired in part on the public television program. I believe this is a permanent decline, said Merton. I do not think this is a liquidity event.

If current trends continue, obese children will soon outnumber those who are undernourished. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.st/2rAAQPL People are fatter than ever. Obesity has more than doubled since 1980. But the biggest rise is in the developing world. Anyone with a body mass index, or BMI, over 30 is considered obese. The higher your BMI, the greater your risk of developing weight-related diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Nearly half of the world’s overweight and obese children under five years old, live in Asia. And in Africa, the number of overweight children under five has increased by nearly 50% since 2000. Hunger still blights many parts of the world. But the share of people who do not have enough to eat is in decline. Globally one in nine people in the world suffer from chronic undernourishment. One in ten are obese. If current trends continue, the share of obese children in the world will surpass the number of undernourished by 2022. Africa has the fastest-growing middle class in the world. A move from traditional foods to high-calorie fast food and a more sedentary lifestyle is driving the rise in obesity. Fast food outlets like KFC and McDonalds have seen rapid growth on the continent. Women appear to be most affected. More than half of women in Botswana are overweight. Ethiopia known for its terrible famine, has seen obesity rates in women rise by 600% since 1984. Health systems in Africa, more focused on treating malnourishment and diseases like malaria and HIV, are ill equipped to deal with obesity-related illnesses like heart disease and diabetes. Pacific islands have the highest obesity rates in the world, thanks to the spread of western fast food. Diets which a generation ago consisted of fish and coconuts are now dominated by processed meat. Nauru is top of the list. 61% of the population are obese, making this tiny paradise island the world’s fattest nation. Cook Islands take second place, with an obesity rate of 56% and Marshall Islands come in third, with 53%. The Middle East is also in the grip of an obesity crisis. In the Saudi Arabia and Qatar and Kuwait more than a third of the population is obese. Obesity is already a global epidemic and is rapidly spreading from the rich world to the poor.

Been flattened by a falling market? Or wondered what took the bend out of Phillips' curve? David Mitchell helps reveal some of the great dilemmas faced by governments trying to run an economy - whether to save or spend, control inflation, regulate trade, fix exchange rates, or just leave everyone to get on with it and not intervene. You'll learn why Adam Smith put such a high price on free markets, how Keynes found a bold new way to reduce unemployment, and what economists went on to discover about the impact of policy on people's and businesses' behaviour - which may not always be entirely rational.

The Economist magazine’s famous Big Mac Index uses the price of McDonald’s Big Macs around the world, expressed in a common currency (U.S. dollars), to estimate the extent to which currencies are over- or under-valued. But you can’t buy a cheap burger in Beijing and eat it in New York, so it's less likely that global burger prices would converge. That's why Benn Steil, Senior Fellow and Director of International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations, created the Mini Mac Index, which compares the price of iPad minis across countries. iPad minis are a global product that, unlike Big Macs, can move quickly and cheaply around the world, which helps equalize prices.

Human Development Human Development is defined as the process of enlarging people’s freedoms and opportunities and improving their well-being. Human development is about the real freedom ordinary people have to decide who to be, what to do, and how to live. The human development concept was developed by economist Mahbub ul Haq. He believed that the commonly used measure of Gross Domestic Product failed to adequately measure well-being. Working with Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen and other economists, in 1990 Dr. Haq published the first Human Development Report, which was commissioned by the United Nations Development Programme. The Human Development Index (HDI) is a composite statistic of life expectancy, education, and per capita income indicators, which are used to rank countries human development. A country scores higher HDI when the lifespan is higher, the education level is higher, and the GDP per capita is higher Calculation Old method (before 2010 Index) New method (2010 Index onwards) The 2010 Human Development Index (HDI) combines three dimensions Life expectancy Education Standard of living 1. Life Expectancy Index (LEI) =(𝐿𝐸−20)/(85−20) LEI is 1 when Life expectancy at birth is 85 and 0 when Life expectancy at birth is 20 2. Education Index (EI) =(𝑀𝑌𝑆𝐼+𝐸𝑌𝑆𝐼)/2  Mean Years of Schooling Index (MYSI) =𝑀𝑌𝑆/25 Average number of years of education received by people ages 25 and older, converted from education attainment levels using official durations of each level. Expected Years of Schooling Index (EYSI) =𝐸𝑌𝑆/18 Number of years of schooling that a child of school entrance age can expect to receive if prevailing patterns of age-specific enrolment rates persist throughout the child's life. 3. Income Index (II) =(I𝑛⁡(𝐺𝑁𝐼𝑝𝑐)−I𝑛⁡(100))/(I𝑛⁡(75.000)−I𝑛⁡(100) ) Income Index is 1 when GNI per capita is $75,000 and 0 when GNI per capita is $100 HDI is the Geometric mean of the previous three normalized indices: HDI=∛(𝐿𝐸𝐼∗𝐸𝐼∗𝐼𝐼)

Today, the Tax Foundation released its first annual International Tax Competitiveness Index that attempts to determine which countries provide the best tax environment for investment and business growth and development. It does this by measuring the competitiveness of tax systems in the OECD’s 34 countries based on over 40 tax policy variables in five categories: corporate income taxes, individual taxes, consumption taxes, property taxes, and the treatment of foreign earnings. The United States has the 3rd least competitive tax code in the OECD, trailed only by Portugal and France. Estonia, New Zealand, and Switzerland have the most competitive tax codes among developed nations.

In which Adriene and Jacob teach you about how and why prices rise. Sometimes prices rise as a result of inflation, which is a pretty normal thing for economies to do. We'll talk about how across the board prices rise over time, and how economists track inflation. Bubbles are a pretty normal thing for humans to do. One item, like tulips or beanie babies or houses or tech startups experience a rapid rise in prices. This is often accompanied by speculation, a bunch of outrageous profits, and then a nasty crash when the bubble bursts. People get excited about rising prices, and next thing you know, people are trading their life savings for a tulip bulb. Crash Course is on Patreon!

A lot of wealth is gone, and there is no reason for it to come back. That was the summation of Robert C. Merton, one of three Nobel Prizewinning economists who joined intellectual forces last week at the School of Managements three-day Future of Life Cycle Saving and Investing Conference. Merton, along with Robert Solow and Paul Samuelson, took questions about the impending retirement savings crisis from PBS NewsHour correspondent Paul Solman at an October 23 after-dinner panel discussion, What Retirement Means to Me, that will be aired in part on the public television program. I believe this is a permanent decline, said Merton. I do not think this is a liquidity event. He told the audience, which included faculty from business schools around the world, that $4 trillion has been lost in real estate, and another $8 trillion to $9 trillion has been lost in the stock market. Asked by Solman if the current down market makes this a good time to invest, Samuelson, perhaps the preeminent American economist of the 20th century and the sole winner of the 1970 Nobel, expressed uncertainty. History teaches no lessons, he said. You dont know when to get back in. Speaking to a packed house in SMGs fourth-floor dining room, the Nobel laureates several times digressed with teasing banter. Asked when he planned to retire, the 93-year-old Samuelson explained that he would have to grow up before he considered retirement. Solow, who at 84 is the Foundation Fellow at the Russell Sage Foundation (where he succeeded Mertons father, sociologist Robert K. Merton), said he believed that he had retired several years earlier when he gave up his teaching salary at MIT. Both Samuelson and Solow taught economics for many years at MIT; Merton is the John and Natty McArthur University Professor at Harvard Business School. When Solman questioned the experts about the distribution of their own investments, they returned some surprising answers. Solow, who won the Nobel in 1987, said he had no idea what was in his portfolio. I just never paid any attention, he said. Thats because I dont care. And Im lucky to have a wife who doesnt care. Merton described his portfolio as almost perfect — you just have to get short. The Harvard economist, who won the Nobel Prize in economics in 1997 for his study of stock options, later revealed that the bulk of his portfolio was in a Global Index Fund, Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities, and one hedge fund. He said he had been invested in a commercial real estate fund until recently, but dropped that when its value rose too quickly for his comfort. Searching for a more optimistic note, Merton pointed out that most people are still living in the houses theyve been used to living in. But, he reminded the audience, the value of those houses is considerably less than it used to be. In the coming years, he said, the people who will fare best are those who enjoy their work. If you happen to be doing what you like, he said, thats a pretty good deal. Asked what advice he had for young people today, Solow offered three short words: Earn and save.

Why are some countries rich? Why are some countries poor? In the end it comes down to Productivity. This week on Crash Course Econ, Adriene and Jacob investigate just why some economies are more productive than others, and what happens when an economy is mor productive. We'll look at how things like per capita GDP translate to the lifestyle of normal people. And, there's a mystery. Crash Course is on Patreon!
