      • Alan Garber: A brief introduction to competition

        07:31

        from Nuffield Trust / Added

        In this video, Professor Alan Garber, Henry J. Kaiser Jr. Professor at Stanford University, introduces the Nuffield Trust’s Annual Health Strategy Summit 2011 session on competition and the NHS, with a few reflections on the meaning and scope of competition for NHS policy makers to consider. Professor Garber talks about some of the dilemmas that the NHS will need to resolve if competition is to be used to benefit health services: - Competition for what kinds of service?; - Competition over price or should prices be fixed?; - How can regulators and policymakers set rules to avoid perverse incentives without choking off technological innovation?

        • Conservation International / TEEB para o Setor de Negócios Brasileiro - The economics of ecosystems and Biodiversity

          A Conservação Internacional (CI-Brasil), o Programa das Nações Unidas para o Meio Ambiente (PNUMA) e o UNEP - World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) têm o prazer de convidá-lo para o lançamento do projeto. The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) study is a major international initiative to draw attention to the global economic benefits of biodiversity, to highlight the growing costs of biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation, and to draw together expertise from the fields of science, economics and policy to enable practical actions moving forward. There are both serious risks to business, as well as significant opportunities, associated with biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation. There is also a need for business to quantify and value its impacts on bio- diversity and ecosystems, in order to manage these risks and opportunities and enable a better future for all. Evaluations of any kind are a powerful ‘feedback mechanism’ for a society which has distanced itself from the biosphere, upon which its very health and survival depends. Economic valuations, in particular, communicate the value of ecosystems and biodiver- sity and their largely unpriced flows of public goods and services in the language of the world’s dominant economic and political model. Mainstreaming this thinking and bringing it to the attention of policy- makers, administrators, businesses and citizens is in essence the central purpose of TEEB, and this summary report on TEEB for Business is an important contribution towards that objective. Modern society’s predominant focus on market- delivered components of well-being, and our almost total dependence on market prices to indicate value, means that we generally do not measure or manage economic values exchanged other than through mar- kets. This is especially true of the public goods and services that comprise a large part of the benefits that nature provides humanity. Society generally also ignores third-party effects of private exchanges (so-called ‘externalities’) unless they are actually declared illegal. TEEB has assem- bled much evidence that the economic invisibility of nature’s flows into the economy is a significant contributor to the degradation of ecosystems and the loss of biodiversity. This in turn leads to serious human and economic costs which are being felt now, have been felt for much of the last half-century, and will be felt at an accelerating pace if we continue ‘business as usual’.

              Agriculture Counsellor, Permanent Mission of Mexico to the WTO, Enrique Domínguez Lucero first recalled his long association with IFAP as a farmer leader. Mexico joined the WTO at the opening of the Uruguay Round of negotiations in 1986. The resulting Marrakesh Agreement of 1994 caused severe social problems for 22 percent of the population that live in villages of less than 2000 people, as import duties were reduced. Many people went to the USA and remittances became the second source of income after oil. The only true investment went to the well-established and efficient exporting sector.

                    In 2007, ADB launched the Asian Water Development Outlook to promote consideration of water in development scenarios for the Asian and Pacific region. It is now recognized that water will likely be a major critical resource issue and that the social, economic, and environmental future of Asia will depend on how efficiently and equitably this resource is managed in coming years. A second edition of the outlook was published in 2013.

                      Criminology draws knowledge and perspectives from a range of disciplines such as law, sociology, psychology, psychiatry and history. Initially, criminology had a strong practical focus: its role was to advise governments on issues such as policing, the management of prisons, sentencing and offender treatment. Concern with policy and practice remains, but criminologists now work in a much wider range of fields including crime prevention, corporate and white-collar crime, business regulation, drug policy and consumer and environmental protection. Criminology doesn’t take crime and criminal law for granted. As an academic discipline it continually questions why different societies define and respond to crime in different ways, and why approaches to punishment and other forms of social control have varied so much from era to era. Increasingly criminologists also study the ways cultures depict crime, whether in newspapers, television and other mass media or in films, novels and art.
