What is INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW? What does INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW mean? INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW meaning - INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW definition - INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. International Trade Law includes the appropriate rules and customs for handling trade between countries. However, it is also used in legal writings as trade between private sectors, which is not right. This branch of law is now an independent field of study as most governments have become part of the world trade, as members of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Since the transaction between private sectors of different countries is an important part of the WTO activities, this latter branch of law is now a very important part of the academic works and is under study in many universities across the world. International trade law should be distinguished from the broader field of international economic law. The latter could be said to encompass not only WTO law, but also law governing the international monetary system and currency regulation, as well as the law of international development. The body of rules for transnational trade in the 21st century derives from medieval commercial laws called the lex mercatoria and lex maritima — respectively, "the law for merchants on land" and "the law for merchants on sea." Modern trade law (extending beyond bilateral treaties) began shortly after the Second World War, with the negotiation of a multilateral treaty to deal with trade in goods: the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). International trade law is based on theories of economic liberalism developed in Europe and later the United States from the 18th century onwards. International Trade Law is an aggregate of legal rules of “international legislation” and new lex mercatoria, regulating relations in international trade. “International legislation” – international treaties and acts of international intergovernmental organizations regulating relations in international trade. lex mercatoria - "the law for merchants on land". Alok Narayan defines "lex mercatoria" as "any law relating to businesses" which was criticised by Professor Julius Stone. and lex maritima - "the law for merchants on sea. Alok in his recent article criticised this definition to be "too narrow" and "merely-creative". Professor Dodd and Professor Malcolm Shaw of Leeds University supported this proposition. In 1995, the World Trade Organization, a formal international organization to regulate trade, was established. It is the most important development in the history of international trade law. The purposes and structure of the organization is governed by the Agreement Establishing The World Trade Organization, also known as the "Marrakesh Agreement". It does not specify the actual rules that govern international trade in specific areas. These are found in separate treaties, annexed to the Marrakesh Agreement. Scope of WTO : (a) provide framework for administration and implementation of agreements; (b) forum for further negotiations; (c) trade policy review mechanism;and (d) promote greater coherence among members economics policies Principles of the WTO: (a) principle of non-discrimination (most-favoured-nation treatment obligation and the national treatment obligation) (b) market access (reduction of tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade) (c) balancing trade liberalisation and other societal interests (d) harmonisation of national regulation (TRIPS agreement, TBT agreement, SPS agreement) The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade(GATT) has been the backbone of international trade law since 1948 after the charter for international trade had been agreed upon in Havana. It contains rules relating to "unfair" trading practices — dumping and subsidies. Many things impacted GATT like the Uruguay Round and the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Rock Center | National Security Regulation: Another Source of Enterprise Risk for Tech Companies
The U.S. Government administers certain laws regulating “international” business activities to advance priority U.S. national security objectives. These legal regimes, such as the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, economic sanctions, and export controls, have been substantially enhanced in the last decade as U.S. policymakers have revisited the salience of regulation as an instrument of national security statecraft. Technology innovation and operating models implicate these legal regimes in non-obvious (and, sometimes, counter-intuitive) ways. And, non-compliance with these rules can adversely impact business strategy and investment decisions, lead to significant individual and corporate civil and criminal penalties, and may even result in imprisonment for responsible persons. This session, the Third Annual Kirkland & Ellis Law Forum, reviews how these legal requirements represent not merely a compliance challenge for tech companies, but an enterprise risk vector for their boards and management teams. Speakers: Mario Mancuso Partner and Head of International Trade and National Security Practice, Kirkland & Ellis LLP Mario Mancuso, P.C., a partner in Kirkland’s Washington, D.C., and New York offices, leads the Firm’s International Trade and National Security practice. A former member of the President’s national security team, Mario represents corporations, boards, financial sponsors, financial institutions, and principal investors on a wide variety of corporate, investigative and enforcement-related matters worldwide. Danya Perry Chief of Litigation and Deputy General Counsel, MacAndrews & Forbes A. Douglas Melamed (moderator) Professor of the Practice of Law, Stanford Law School; Former Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Intel Corporation Doug Melamed practiced law for 43 years before spending the 2014-15 academic year at the Law School as the Herman Phleger Visiting Professor of Law.

Cultural difference in business | Valerie Hoeks | TEDxHaarlem
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. One of the elements of the cultural difference between Europe and China is the importance that is given to relationships. In the West you would assume the importance to be the same, but there is a significant distinction. In China connections with the right people help you to get things done, to survive and to succeed. Whereas in the West content is predominant, in China the way people interact with each other strongly influences the working environment. 'Face' and long-term effects are taken into consideration. Valérie Hoeks (1982) studied Sinology at the Leiden University and has been active in China for over a decade as a traveller, a student and later as an entrepreneur. As soon as she set foot on Chinese soil she knew she would come back many times. In 2010 Valérie co-founded China Inroads in collaboration with with her Dutch and Chinese business partner. China Inroads provides a strong foothold for innovative companies that want to expand their business to the Chinese market. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

The Business Case for Fighting Corruption
In the 1970s, the United States led a global movement to fight corruption and promote the rule of law. Over the years, the movement gained traction around the world, and various indices, such as the World Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Index, Heritage Foundation's Index of Economic Freedom, and World Justice Project's Rule of Law Index were developed. These indices were able to highlight corruption as a widespread problem and consistent barrier to economic growth and wealth creation. Corruption often leads to higher transaction costs, which lead to less productivity and misallocated resources that, among other issues, dampens investment critical to economic growth. Promoting a culture of compliance and supporting civil society engagement (e.g., antitrust laws and whistleblowers) is essential for combating global corruption. A return to a focus on good governance - in particular, a leveling up of the global playing field for businesses to operate overseas while complying with international standards and U.S. regulations - will help companies maintain their competitiveness and facilitate investment and capital where it is needed the most. Given a number of initiatives led by the private sector and civil society, corruption continues to get attention; but it is worth exploring additional ways that the U.S. government might lead global anti-corruption efforts and, in doing so, promote an expansion of the rule of law. Join us for a timely discussion with an expert panel about the business case for U.S. government involvement in combating corruption and supporting the rule of law.

Air Law & Space Law: spatial delimitation between airspace & outer space | Dr Gbenga Oduntan
THINK KENT – INTERNATIONAL THINKERS | GLOBAL IMPACT There is no universally agreed precise legal, technical or political definition of either the boundaries separating airspace from outer space or of the term ‘outer space’ itself. Yet two separate legal regimes exist for the regulation of these two environments. Whilst states have complete and exclusive sovereignty of their airspace, there can be no exercise of sovereignty in outer space other than jurisdiction over space flight vehicles and objects such as space stations. In this lecture, Dr Gbenga Oduntan, Senior Lecturer in International Commercial Law at the University of Kent, critiques the leading theories that have been postulated to solve this problem, and proposes an original solution regarding the spatial demarcation boundary point issue in air and space law. ► SEARCH for a course at the University of Kent: http://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/?utm_source=YouTube&utm_medium=OduntanSearch&utm_campaign=ThinkKent1516 ► Research at Kent: https://www.kent.ac.uk/research/?utm_source=YouTube&utm_medium=OduntanResearch&utm_campaign=ThinkKent1516 ► SUBSCRIBE for more Think Kent lectures: http://www.youtube.com/user/UniversityofKent?sub_confirmation=1 ABOUT DR GBENGA ODUNTAN Dr Oduntan is Senior Lecturer in International Commercial Law at Kent Law School.

International Law Explained
The depth and breadth of international law. Kal Raustiala: I think international law is one of these things that's a little bit like the air where it's everywhere. We don't really notice it so when you get on a plane and you fly to Europe the ability to get on that plane, cross over the air space of other countries, sometimes you see the little map when you're in the plane that shows you're crossing over Greenland or whatever, all of that is governed by international law in different ways. Different treaties are in place to take care of all the questions that might arise about aviation. So that's a really mundane example and then at the other extreme we've got much more contentious examples like--  Let's take the war in Iraq. So as most of us remember in the run up to the war the Bush administration went to the security council at the United Nations and tried to get a second resolution, and they're doing that because there is a legal framework in place that governs the ability of countries to enter in to armed conflict. So between those two bookends a zillion other examples but I think the thing to recognize about international law is in a globalized world, in an integrated world, you are constantly dealing with things that are crossing borders or you're crossing borders and international law is usually playing some role in shaping that. Question: What dictates international law?the most common thing are treaties and most of us are familiar with--  I mentioned aviation. There are treaties governing that. The UN itself was created by a treaty. So treaties are kind of the backbone a little bit like we think of statutes in the domestic context, but we do have something like common law. We call it customary law so a good example would be the law of the sea. There's all kinds of rules about ships and their ability to go on the high seas and who can board and where they can cross. Most of that is governed by custom and the idea is this custom kind of a cruise over time like the common law becomes entrenched and accepted as law, and then there is also courts. Right. So we have--  The International Court of Justice sits in The Hague and we've got a series of other courts. Right. The World Trade Organization has a court and so forth. So there is a set of judicial institutions much like in our domestic system so in a lot of ways it's a very similar system. There isn't I suppose a constitutional equivalent. There isn't a kind of grand governing thing but there are literally tens of thousands of treaties so a surprising amount of topics are covered.Question: Who are the governing bodies?There are a whole set of international organizations so from the United Nations being the most broad, the most elaborated, probably the most famous. The World Trade Organization is a little more specialized and then you've got dozens and dozens and dozens, thousands probably, of these subsidiary international organizations, international maritime organization dealing with law of the sea questions and so on down the line. And these have been created over the years. Some of them date back to the nineteenth century but for the most part that's a kind of twentieth-century phenomenon so one of the things we see in the last century or so has been one, the rise of these international organizations, the UN being the paramount example, and two, the use of treaties. Treaties existed in the past but when we talked about custom and common law that was much more common. Now we tend to codify that in to treaty. So those two things are sort of two major trends of the last century.Question: How will globalization affect international law?in the sense that you can have a treaty for example in which every country is a member of that treaty and so would be governed by that, and in fact we have lots of treaties that are pretty close to what you've got in virtually every single country. The Convention on the Rights of the Child I think is a good example where only the United States and Somalia when I last checked were not parties to that treaty. The United Nations Charter comes pretty close. Right. So virtually every country--  Switzerland for a long time was a holdout. Virtually every country is part of the UN system and so governed by the rules of the UN Charter so there is no barrier to that and we do see it.

Risk, Regulation and International Cooperation - Session 4.4
Risk regulation in an interconnected world http://www.irr-network.org Our increasingly interconnected world presents new challenges and opportunities for the regulation of risks. Global trade brings product risks across borders, such as unsafe foods or toys, while it also poses competitiveness constraints on national regulatory bodies. Now globalization is facilitating the propagation of risks across borders, such as pollution, pandemics and terrorist networks. On the other hand, increasing globalization also offers opportunities for regulators to improve their policies, through learning and borrowing of ideas across borders. Meanwhile, in a complex world, precautionary policies may reduce some risks, but could create other risks, and may spur rather than calm public anxiety. How can countries learn from each other about the best approaches to the regulation of health, safety, security, and environmental risks? How should countries organize the oversight of their regulatory systems? What are the pressures and opportunities of engagement in global networks?
Anti-Money-Laundering, Counterterrorism Financing and Financial Crime
Anti-Money-Laundering, Counterterrorism Financing and Financial Crime: The Critical Role of Financial Institutions and How It Affects You Talk by Hue Dang ’92, Head of Asia for the Association of Certified Anti-Money-Laundering Specialists. Media coverage in the last several years of financial penalties against global banks such as BNP Paribas ($8.9 billion) or HSBC ($1.92 billion) for money-laundering and sanctions violations—to name just a few examples—highlights the increasing risks to banks as they conduct their normal business. We now live in an era of international money-laundering controls. The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, revolutionized the anti-money-laundering (AML) field and brought into stark relief the threat of the movement and disguising of funds destined for the support of terrorism throughout the world, introducing a whole new effort to combat the financing of terrorism (CFT). As a result of the governmental reaction in virtually all countries, banks, non-bank financial institutions and nonfinancial businesses face tougher national and international legal requirements and harsher penalties than ever before. By the same token, the regulators of those businesses, law-enforcement agents and prosecutors also face greater challenges and responsibilities in their work. The discussion of what this means to you will include the economic and social consequences of money laundering; the latest regulatory developments in the U.S., Asia and Europe; challenges in effective AML/CFT implementation; and key lessons learned from recent cases. Presented by the Class of 1992.

Global Business in Practice | GeorgetownX on edX | Course About Video
Get an overall view of the increasingly complex challenges of global business from the insights, perspectives and experience of Georgetown faculty and senior executives currently working in multinational companies. Take this course free on edX: https://www.edx.org/course/global-business-practice-georgetownx-gbex-650-01x#! ABOUT THIS COURSE Global Business in Practice helps you understand the impact globalization has on global trade and how companies need to react. Business schools are very good at compiling theories; we add value by combining those theories with the practical realities faced by top executives and exploring the management of global business from their perspectives. Leading industry experts will be featured throughout the course, including: Joseph P. Baratta, Global Head of Private Equity at Blackstone; Maximo J. Blandon, Managing Director at Stephens Inc.; Mark G. Del Rosso, Executive Vice President & COO of Audi of America; Thomas J. DeRosa, CEO and Director of Welltower; Fabrizio Freda, President & CEO of The Estée Lauder Companies; Franck J. Moison, Vice Chairman at Colgate-Palmolive; Roxana Pierce, Of Counsel at Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP; Monica Vidal, Partner at MVS Global Consulting Services; Stephanie von Friedeburg, CIO and VP for Information and Technology Solutions at the World Bank Group. You will understand the horizontal nature of practical problem solving rather than the vertical work and learning that traditionally happens in functional silos. Our goal is that, through this course, you will come to explicitly understand that globalization affects every country regardless of its economic, political or social situation. In this context, as countries endeavor to adapt their policies to new demands, companies deploy strategies to attain an increasingly globally integrated production system. The globalized world forces us to seek and develop appropriate ways to undergo this process. Today, discussions about the advantages and disadvantages of globalization are insignificant and unimportant in the face of the great need to determine the essential conditions for countries, companies and individuals to really benefit from it. A fundamental knowledge of core business disciplines is clearly a “must” for aspiring global leaders, but the complexity of the global world requires us to push the envelope and extend the limits of what is possible. Join us as we explore the future of global business leadership. WHAT YOU'LL LEARN You will come away from this course with the foundational knowledge of what it takes to be a “Global Ready Leader” and will be able to use key findings about the workings of globalization to make more informed decisions in a business context: You will be able to understand the practical complexities of what globalization is and how it affects the business environment regardless of its economic, political or social situation. You will be able to articulate how global challenges are becoming increasingly complex by gaining insights from executives at different multinational corporations. You will be able to conceptualize the differences in global business orientations and apply them in specific situations (i.e., multinational, global, glocal) using academic frameworks. You will be able to explain how regulations and geopolitical forces shape global business environments and create both tensions and opportunities in the context of global business. You will be able to articulate how the global environment is changing and forcing companies to develop sustainability practices based on creating economic value by creating societal value. You will appreciate how global supply chains are the response to the increasing integration of international markets as firms try to remain competitive.

Global Research Business Network Launch
The new Global Research Business Network was launched at the 2012 MRS annual conference on 21 March 2012. The Global Research Business Network connects 25 research associations and over 2500 research businesses on five continents, who collectively represent more than US$24.6 billion (€18.54 billion) in annual research revenues (turnover). Its mission is to promote and advance the business of research by developing and supporting strong autonomous national research associations by: •Sharing information and expertise to strengthen and develop national associations to deliver value to their members •Promoting development of research technologies and insights through creating additional opportunities for cross-border exchanges among research associations, communities and businesses •Promoting international ethical and quality standards •Promoting effective self regulation at the national level and developing solutions to resolve complaints about multi-country and cross-border projects •Developing guidance on cross-border trade issues such as outsourcing and sub-contracting •Identifying needs and potential partnerships between national associations. EFAMRO, the European Federation of Associations of Market Research Organisations of which MRS is a member, joined forces with APRC, the Asia Pacific Research Committee and ARIA, and the Americas Research Industry Alliance, to create the Global Research Business Network. The Network is guided by five principles: AUTONOMY: The Network acknowledges the role of each national association in representing and promoting the interests of their national membership. COLLABORATION: The Network will enhance member value of each national association by strengthening the relevance of the association in a global environment. The strength of the Network is dependent on vibrant, healthy and relevant national associations. COMMON STANDARDS: The Network will compile and publish a set of global standards and guidelines to provide a common framework for the development of the business of research, while acknowledging national and regional variations. RESPECT: The Network respects the desire of each national association to direct its own efforts to promote self-regulation while advancing the business of research. National associations are in the best position to address changes in the legal environment that might impact research. DEVELOPMENT: The Network will sponsor conferences and events and encourage participation in national association events to promote the growth of members, who are all concerned with the business of research. The Global Research Business Network is co-directed by Peter Harris of APRC, Alex Garnica of ARIA and Barry Ryan of EFAMRO.

Data Protection and Privacy
Increasingly, an ever-wider range of economic, political and social activities are moving online, encompassing various kinds of information and communications technologies (ICTs). The evolving ICT use is having a transformational impact on the way business is done, and the way people interact among themselves, as well as with government, enterprises and other stakeholders. This new landscape gives rise to new business models and a wider scope for innovation. At the same time, it facilitates undesirable activities online, including cybercrime. Against this background, world leaders in 2015 underscored the importance of adopting relevant policy responses to harness the potential of ICTs for all seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Creating trust online is a fundamental challenge to ensuring that the opportunities emerging in the information economy can be fully leveraged. The handling of data is a central component in this context. In today's digital world, personal data are the fuel that drives much commercial activity online, raising concerns of privacy and security of information. The present regulatory situation is far from ideal. Some countries lack rules altogether. Some national pieces of legislation are incompatible with each other. UNCTAD provides legal advise and build capacity of policy and law makers. It also serves as a valuable forum for a much-needed global dialogue geared to building consensus in a very important policy field such as data protection.

Michel Barnier: "Future of EU is much more important than Brexit, UK closes doors on itself"
The United Kingdom is "closing the doors on itself" - and the only possible model left is a free trade agreement, EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has said today at an international business conference in Brussels. The EU's chief negotiator said it was time to "tell the truth" about making "difficult but necessary choices". If the UK elects to leave the Single Market that will mean "strict rules" on areas such as data protection - insisting there will be no mutual recognition on this matter. "In the absence of a common discipline, in the absence of EU law that can override national law, in the absence of common supervision and a common court, there can be no mutual recognition of standards," he said. In choosing to leave the customs union, Barnier echoed his colleague Donald Tusk's words from earlier today, noting that necessarily would result in the end of frictionless trade. And thirdly, he noted that the UK's choice of whether to move away from the European regulatory model or not would go to the heart of "our social market economy, food safety, effective financial regulation, and a precautionary approach to environmental and public health risks". "For an ambitious economic partnership, we will need to find common ground on the rules that apply to social and environmental matters, to consumer protection and to competition," he said, pointing to aviation as an example where numerous issues could arise. It is understood that the UK government's current thinking is to accept alignment on areas such as Open Skies, however. Barnier pressed the UK government to make clear what it is seeking to "enable us to begin building an ambitious future partnership based on a foundation of realism and in the interest of our citizens and our businesses". "It should be our common goal to make such a free trade agreement ambitious," he added. "All of the models remain available, as long as the UK is willing to accept the balance between rights and obligations." Speaking a day after his controversial draft treaty was published, the EU's chief negotiator stressed that he was open to "better" alternatives on the Irish border question from the UK. Barnier also urged European businesses to "analyse their exposure to the UK and [make sure they] are ready to adapt their logistics, supply chains and contracts". He reiterated his previous warning that transition was still not guaranteed and would not be until the end of the process "with the ratification of the withdrawal agreement by both sides –probably early next year".

Since February 20102 he has been appointed President of the Upper Tribunal Immigration and Asylum Chamber that determines appeals from decisions of the First tier. This seminar will examine the inter-relationship between the common law interpretation of the Refugee Convention 1951 and the case law from the European Courts on Article 3 ECHR and EU Qualification Directive 2004. It will focus on the practical aspects of asylum determination: credibility assessment, information on country of origin, risks from non state actors, sufficiency of protection and then assessment problems created by intense but short lived periods of violence. It will consider the UK system of country guidance, the challenges it faces and how it links to the work of the international courts.

Energetic Armament VOX
Some notes from the owners of EA! Company Background Steve Piche and Karl Edminster are both degreed engineers (S- Manufacturing Engineering, K- Electromechanical Engineering) and have operated a successful engineering business, Electromechanica, Inc. (EMI), since 2003. That business provides design, engineering & prototyping services to a wide range of commercial and government clients. EMI holds a Type 10 FFL (Mfg. of DD’s) and Type 20 FEL (Fed. Explosives Lisc.) and has done a wide range of military system & weapons development work. Karl & Steve formed a new separate company, Energetic Armament LLC, in 2017 to focus on the development & manufacture of weapons systems and components including suppressors. We ae joined by fellow engineer, Andrew DeMedeiros (electromechanical engineer) who has developed the custom CNC welding system we use to weld our cans. Vox Development Following the successful launch of the Nyx and Nyx Mod2 rimfire silencer in August 2017, we began development on the Vox centerfire silencer. Vox is Latin for Voice- the voice of your firearm. We recognized a capabilities gap in the industry- You could have a tough, high temp capable silencer but it was heavy or you could have a lightweight titanium silencer but it could not handle harsh, high temperature use. There was no offering optimized to offer a solution that was light, tough and could withstand harsh, high temperature firing. The first step was using materials science to identify a material that would meet these requirements. After assessing hundreds of potential candidate materials, that material turned out to be C300 Maraging Steel (Martensitic Aging). This nickel-cobalt-iron alloy was developed in the 50’s for military and aerospace applications. One specific application caught our attention- NASA uses this material for rocket motor casings- casings that are subjected to extreme temperatures & pressures but must be light! Further research showed that this alloy was reasonably machinable in the annealed state, easily weldable and could be heat treated to achieve extraordinary strength. After heat treat this material has a room temperature tensile strength of approximately 285ksi (thousand pounds per square inch). What’s more, this alloy maintains more strength at 1,000°F than the 17-4PH stainless, typically used in other suppressors, has a room temp. EA is the first company to ever bring this high performance material to the silencer market. C300 Maraging steel is such a high performance alloy that it is ITAR (International Traffick in Arms Regulations) controlled and is closely monitored by the US State Department and DoD as it is used in uranium centrifuges and other sought after weapons components. The ultra-high strength of this material allowed us to develop a silencer design that was incredibly light but did not sacrifice capability. The walls and baffles were engineered to optimize strength-to-weight allowing rating up to 300RUM and no barrel length restriction. Further, thinner walls give the Vox nearly 10% more internal volume than similar competitor’s silencers. Added volume and surface area allow better heat transfer and internal gas expansion- this means a quieter can! Thanks for all the support! Now it's time for you to win!

18. Monetary Policy
Financial Markets (2011) (ECON 252) To begin the lecture, Professor Shiller explores the origins of central banking, from the goldsmith bankers in the United Kingdom to the founding of the Bank of England in 1694, which was a private institution that created stability in the U.K. financial system by requiring other banks to have deposits in it. Turning his attention to the U.S., Professor Shiller outlines the evolution of its banking system from the Suffolk System, via the National Banking era, to the founding of the Federal Reserve System in 1913. After presenting approaches to central banking in the European Union and in Japan, he emphasizes the federal funds rate, targeted by the Federal Open Market Committee, as well as the recent change to pay interest on reserve balances at the Federal Reserve, enacted by the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act from 2008, as important tools of U.S. monetary policy. After elaborating on reserve requirements, which are liability-based restrictions, and capital requirements, which are asset-based, he provides a simple, illustrative example that delivers an important intuition about the difficulties that banks have faced during the recent crisis from 2007-2008. This leads to Professor Shiller's concluding remarks about regulatory approaches to the prevention of future banking crises. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

The real reason American health care is so expensive
Hint: single-payer won’t fix America’s health care spending. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Americans don't drive up the price by consuming more health care. They don't visit the doctor more than other developed countries: http://international.commonwealthfund.org/stats/annual_physician_visits/ But the price we pay for that visit - for a procedure - it costs way more: http://static1.squarespace.com/static/518a3cfee4b0a77d03a62c98/t/57d3ca9529687f1a257e9e26/1473497751062/2015+Comparative+Price+Report+09.09.16.pdf The price you pay for the same procedure, at the same hospital, may vary enormously depending on what kind of health insurance you have in the US. That's because of bargaining power. Government programs, like Medicare and Medicaid, can ask for a lower price from health service providers because they have the numbers: the hospital has to comply or else risk losing the business of millions of Americans. There are dozens of private health insurance providers in the United States and they each need to bargain for prices with hospitals and doctors. The numbers of people private insurances represent are much less than the government programs. That means a higher price when you go to the doctor or fill a prescription. Uninsured individuals have the least bargaining power. Without any insurance, you will pay the highest price.

The FDA and the Pharmaceutical Industry
Carpenter, author of Reputation and Power:Organizational Image and Pharmaceutical Regulation at the FDA will join us to discuss the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is the most powerful regulatory agency in the world. How did the FDA become so influential? And how exactly does it wield its extraordinary power? Carpenter traces the history of FDA regulation of pharmaceuticals, revealing how the agency's organizational reputation has been the primary source of its power, yet also one of its ultimate constraints. Sponsored by the USC Bedrosian Center as part of it's on-going Governance Salons. Daniel Carpenter is Allie S. Freed Professor of Government and Director of the Center for American Political Studies in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University. For the 2011-2012 academic year, he is a Walter Channing Cabot Faculty Fellow at Harvard, and a visiting researcher at the Institut d'Études Politiques at the Université de Strasbourg in France. He graduated from Georgetown University in 1989 with distinction in Honors Government and received his doctorate in political science from the University of Chicago in 1996. He taught previously at Princeton University (1995-1998) and the University of Michigan (1998-2002). He joined the Harvard University faculty in 2002. Dr. Carpenter mixes theoretical, historical, statistical and mathematical analyses to examine the development of political institutions, particularly in the United States. He focuses upon public bureaucracies and government regulation, particularly regulation of health and financial products. His dissertation received the 1998 Harold D. Lasswell Award from the American Political Science Association and as a book - The Forging of Bureaucratic Autonomy: Reputations, Networks and Policy Innovation in Executive Agencies, 1862-1928 (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2001) - was awarded the APSA's Gladys Kammerer Prize as well as the Charles Levine Prize of the International Political Science Association. His recently published book on pharmaceutical regulation in the United States is entitled Reputation and Power: Organizational Image and Pharmaceutical Regulation at the FDA (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2010), and has received the 2011 Allan Sharlin Memorial Award from the Social Science History Association. Professor Carpenter has held fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, the Brookings Institution and the Santa Fe Institute. He has received grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Science Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (Scholars in Health Policy 1998-2000, Investigator Award in Health Policy Research 2004-2007), the Alfred Sloan Foundation, the Russell Sage Foundation and the Safra Center for Ethics. In the past few years, Professor Carpenter is the winner of both the 2011 Herbert Simon Award of the Midwest Political Science Association for a scholar "who has made a significant career contribution to the scientific study of bureaucracy", as well as the 2011 David Collier Award of the American Political Science Association for career contributions to qualitative and multi-method research. In addition to his ongoing teaching and scholarship on the political economy of government regulation and health, Professor Carpenter has recently launched a long-term project on petitioning in North American political development, examining comparisons and connections to petitioning histories in Europe and India. He hopes to draw upon the millions of petitions in local, state and federal archives to create an educational, genealogical and scholarly resource for citizens, students and scholars.

Market Failures, Taxes, and Subsidies: Crash Course Economics #21
This week on Crash Course Econ, Jacob and Adriene are talking about failure. Specifically, we're talking about market failures. When markets don't provide a good or service efficiently, that's a market failure. When markets fail, often governments step in to provide those services. Stuff like public education or military protection are good examples of market failures. So, what are some of the ways governments address, market failures? Well, it's funny you should ask, as we also talk about that in this episode. We'll get into taxes and subsidies and externalities and a bunch of other important stuff this week on Crash Course Econ.

Who Is In Charge of the Internet? The Role of International Institutions
The Honorable Meredith Broadbent, United States International Trade Commission Laura DeNardis, American University Wolfgang Kopf, Deutsche Telekom The Honorable Michael O'Rielly, Federal Communications Commission Will Hudson, Google David Gross (moderator), Wiley Rein LLP The TPI Aspen Forum event gathers leaders from business, government and academia to discuss and debate key public policy issues affecting innovation, technology, and communications. ​ Since 2010, more than 850 policymakers and thought leaders have convened at the St. Regis resort for provocative discussions and riveting keynotes on topics including U.S. competitiveness and innovation, broadband penetration, and entertainment distribution models, to name a few. Each year’s agenda touches on timely themes and pertinent issues driving public policy and regulatory decisions and how they may affect tech, communications and content industries. The depth of discussions, featuring both industry leaders and academic experts, makes the event a unique experience. ​ The new administration and Congress are reconsidering longstanding regulatory, tax, and international policies, among others, with potentially far-reaching consequences. These potential policy shifts could affect the landscape for the technology and communications sectors as well as the broader U.S. and global business environment. How will these changes influence emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and investment in new communications networks like 5G? More broadly, what will be the effect on innovation and economic growth? ​ Panels and speakers will discuss these and other related issues at the Technology Policy Institute’s Aspen Forum.
