Full Coverage: ET Global Business Summit 2017 The Trump administration has a two-part strategy for stimulating stronger growth in the future. A key part is to reduce government regulations that discourage business activity, including regulations of labour markets and of financial institutions. The primary pro-growth strategy is to reform the tax system to encourage business investment. It is too soon to be confident about the success of the Trump administration in achieving its tax reform goals. Although the Republican party now controls not only the White House but also both houses of Congress, there are factions within the Republican party that make it difficult to agree on the details of legislation. But the basic outlines of the pro-growth tax legislation were developed in the House of Representatives and are largely favoured by the Trump administration.

Among other things, this includes investment cooperation. Russia has already invested about 1 billion euro in the development of the railway network in Iran, and serious financial injections into our common projects are yet to come. This issue will also be discussed. Russia's capabilities are not unlimited, but there are several areas in which Russia is able to compete very effectively with other countries on the Iranian market, including investment. In this regard, Hassan Rouhani's visit to Moscow will give the necessary impetus to the development and acceleration of the Russian-Iranian relations. In your estimation, are there any differences or unresolved issues in the Russian-Iranian relations today? In politics, this is a certain misunderstanding between Moscow and Tehran on the Syrian issue, and in the economy these are financial problems.

Though many more years of research and investment are required to figure out how to map the human brain, at least this video will give you a better understanding of what it's all about. I'm impressed that when you talk to people about something that seems kind of crazy and outlandish, and perhaps [something] they hadn't been talking about before, it doesn't take them long to come a kind of considered opinion, Kasthuri says.

And the latter, in turn, should generate new jobs in the service sectors. Fence-sitting PwC sits on the fence at this point, claiming that the net long-term impact of all this automation on UK employment levels could be either positive or negative; its not willing to make the call at this point. But what the consultancy firm does say is that average incomes should rise due to the productivity gains driven by this tech, but those increases may not be spread evenly across income groups. So the lower-paid may be likely to suffer more, and thats something the government should guard against. In the report, PwC observes : There is a strong case for increased investment in lifelong vocational education and training to help people adapt to increased automation. Universal basic income schemes may also be considered, but suffer from potential problems in terms of affordability and adverse effects on work incentives.

Why GLD Is Not the Same as Gold SPDR Gold Trust (GLD), the largest, most popular gold ETF , is an investment fund that holds physical gold to back its shares. The share price tracks the price of gold, and it trades like a stock, but the vast majority of investors dont have a claim on the underlying gold. The reason for this is that you can only request physical delivery of metal if you own a minimum of 100,000 GLD shares (most investors dont: at $1,000 gold, 100,000 shares is more than a million dollars). Even if you do own enough shares, the GLD ETF reserves the right to settle your delivery request in cash. So why is GLD appealing to investors if you never actually own any gold?

(AP/Geert Vanden Wijngaert) Greece’s financial woes began back in the early 2000s, when its government sought to adopt the euro and gain entrance to the EU. Though Greece did not meet the financial requirements necessary to become a full member of the EU at the time, they were granted membership anyway – largely thanks to “creative accountingcarried out by none other than the infamous U.S. investment bank Goldman Sachs. In 2002, U.S. bankers helped Greece cover up its fiscal deficits, which were unacceptable by EU standards, by issuing Greek government debt in dollars and yen . This debt was then swapped for debt priced in euros for a certain period. This “cross-currencyswap, thanks to its use of a fictional exchange rate, was essentially a giant chunk of credit that obfuscated the actual levels of Greek government debt. However, like all credit and loans, that “swappedmoney would eventually have to be exchanged back into its original currency – a ticking time bomb that would engulf the nation in a mountain of unsustainable debt upon its maturation.

Adding a premium membership scheme with audience growing features that are relevant to businesses and social media influencers could give Twitter a way to hold on to a good chunk of its users and add a new stream of income outside of advertising revenue. Nothing has been confirmed just yet but Twitter is apparently surveying a small number of its users to gauge their interest in the move, stating: We regularly conduct user research to gather feedback about peoples Twitter experience and to better inform our product investment decisions, and we're exploring several ways to make Tweetdeck even more valuable for professionals. If Twitter does decide to go ahead with its plan itll be going up against third party services like HootSuite which have been doing similar things for years already. Its surprising that Twitter didnt decide to do this when these third party services started to crop up, though it does perhaps go some way towards explaining why the services user base has stagnated in recent months.
