Business Briefs

Business Briefs

(May 2014) Couples in the world's five biggest developed economies — the United States, Japan, Germany, France and the United Kingdom — had 350,000 fewer babies in 2012 than in 2008, a drop of nearly 5%. The United Nations forecasts that women in those countries will have an average 1.7 children in their lifetimes. Demographers estimate that the fertility rate needs to reach 2.1 just to replace people dying and keep populations constant.
(April 2014) New revenue streams arising from recent and upcoming crude oil and natural gas production would be channeled into investments in roads, railways, ports, and power, according to African finance officials.
(April 2014) An online tool that is designed to tally the bill from cyberattacks has been launched. Incidents of cybercrime are reported in the media almost every day, yet reliable estimates of their financial impact on companies are few and far between.
(April 2014) Dubai’s successful bid to host the World Expo 2020 and Qatar the FIFA World Cup 2022 are adding to that attention that Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC; Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates) are receiving from investors, as growth in more developed regions slows. A further incentive has been the substantial regulatory reform efforts of GCC countries over the last decade. Nonetheless, the region presents risks to investors, particularly since its shift from oil-based to more balanced growth has proved uneven.
(March 2014) How the Doppler Effect helped locate the likely remains of MH370, why thorium will not be the fuel of tomorrow and how Turkey (tried to) shut Twitter down.
(March 2014) News about Bitcoin seems to be everywhere. So what is it? The short answer is that Bitcoin with a capital “B” is a peer-to-peer network that allows for the proof and transfer of ownership without the need for a trusted third party.
(March 2014) The estimated potential impact on trading costs for developing countries of the WTO trade facilitation agreement concluded in Bali in December 2013, has been published.
(February 2014) Presentation on Germany's economy and property markets in 2014.
(February 2014) As the global economy continues its recovery, Credit Suisse's top investment ideas focus on carefully selected themes which aim to help you generate more bang for your buck in 2014 – from China to cash-rich companies. Giles Keating, head of Private Banking Research, explains the rationale behind the ideas and the investment implications.
(February 2014) Africa hasn't left behind enduring problems of violence and kleptocracy but its prospects are brighter and in the BP Energy Outlook 2035, Africa will remain an important producer of oil and natural gas, accounting for 10% of global oil and 9% of natural gas production in 2035. Dani Rodrik, the Princeton economist who specialises on globalization, has noted that long viewed as an economic basket case, Sub-Saharan Africa countries are experiencing its best growth performance since the immediate post-independence years. Natural-resource windfalls have helped, but the good news extends beyond resource-rich countries. Countries such as Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Uganda, among others, have grown at East Asian rates since the mid-1990’s. And Africa’s business and political leaders are teeming with optimism about the continent’s future. However, it has not yet been able to emulate East Asia by turning farmers into manufacturing workers.
