European companies can do better in R&D, Brussels report says
 
01:01
European Commissioner Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, Member of the EC in charge of Research, Innovation and Science, on Tuesday presented the EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard, saying that European companies are 'doing well' but that they 'can be doing better'. The EU scoreboard shows that R&D investment by top EU companies recovered strongly in 2010, with a 6.1% rise following a 2.6% decrease in 2009. But data for the world's top 1400 companies show EU companies as a whole lagging behind major competitors from the US and some Asian economies on R&D growth. There was a general positive trend in 2010, as global R&D investment increased by 4%, a robust up-turn after the 1.9% drop observed in 2009. The global top 50 in terms of total R&D investment includes 15 EU companies, 18 US firms and 13 from Japan, according to the European Commission. Two pharmaceutical companies occupied the top spots: Roche from Switzerland (€7.2bn) followed by Pfizer from the US (€7bn). Volkswagen (€6.3bn), in sixth place, is the biggest EU investor in R&D, followed by Nokia (11th with €4.9bn), Daimler (13th with €4.8bn) and Sanofi-Aventis (14th with €4.4bn).

Connectivity: The key to growth in Europe
 
02:31
Europe needs a Digital Revolution to ensure strong and steady economic growth. This is why ETNO asked the Boston Consulting Group to study how policy reforms can help achieve this objective. Their study shows that the internet economy will grow 13 times faster than the economy as a whole in Europe if it is underpinned by powerful digital networks for all, across the whole continent. This means that connectivity is the main pillar for growth in Europe and that the digitalisation of the EU economy represents a huge growth opportunity that cannot - and must not be missed. Massive investment in superfast broadband deployment is essential for this to happen. Despite the fact that European telecom operators are investing heavily, Boston Consulting Group estimates that an investment gap of 106 billion euros will persist unless action is taken to fundamentally reform current regulation. For this to happen, we believe that the Telecoms rules should become market-based and technology-agnostic and should be streamlined towards fostering investment in networks. Also, it is vital that consistent and fair rules be applied when it comes to protecting users’ data. In today’s modern society users are increasingly choosing between services that operate under different regulatory regimes – sending a message via whatsapp or SMS for example. We need to adapt the rules so that they are applied consistently across the digital value chain and that they stimulate more innovation We at ETNO support the European Commission in its review of the Telecom Framework and encourage a swift and broad re-think of the policy and regulatory tools that exist today. We are living in exciting times in which more and more is possible thanks to digital networks. Everything will change – from cars to health to the way we communicate. Rules and regulation must keep up with the changes and reflect the amazing opportunity of the digital society.

Western Balkans Connectivity [Long Version]
 
03:56
The European Commission announced a new package of measures which will boost connectivity within the Western Balkans region and with the EU, notably through the Western Balkans Investment Framework. The EU will provide grants for additional 11 high-priority transport projects (road, rail, ports) worth €190 million. This investment can leverage up to €1 billion in loans from international financing institutions. In order to develop the new Digital Agenda for the Western Balkans, the EU has earmarked €30 million for investments in broadband rollouts across the region. Partners agreed to extend the region's arrangements to reduce roaming costs to all six partners, while at the same time the EU will develop a roadmap to lower the cost of roaming between the Western Balkans and the EU. Moreover, the EU will support the region's energy transition through promoting renewable energy sources, including a sustainable use of hydropower.

Juice giant Citrosuco (Brazil) brings sunshine to Europe via Flanders
 
03:32
https://www.flandersinvestmentandtrade.com - Fantastic infrastructure, a highly-skilled, multilingual workforce, and the support of government agency Flanders Investment and Trade: these are the ingredients for Citrosuco’s success in Europe. The Brazilian company had already set up shop at the port of Ghent by 1980. Today, it is responsible for one in every four glasses of orange juice poured in Europe. Citrosuco juices up its European business from Flanders Brazilian food company Citrosuco is the largest producer of orange juice concentrate in the world. Its logistics hub in Ghent, Flanders was established in 1980. Today, via Citrosuco, one in every four glasses of orange juice poured in Europe passes through the ports of Ghent and Zeebrugge in Flanders. The terminal for the bulk storage of orange juice and concentrates in Ghent is the second-largestof its kind worldwide, after the one in Brazil. “Since the very beginning, the company has worked closely with the Ghent Port Authority,” explains Katrien Van Den Bossche, managing director of Citrosuco Europe. “Brazil has since become the most important trade partner for the Port of Ghent.” Ghent is a city in Flanders, a truly unique location for setting up a distribution center or logistics hub. Flanders is the ideal gateway to Europe. The region has four seaports and three airports. Its road, railway and waterway networks are among the densest in the world. “Flanders has many other assets as well,” Katrien Van Den Bossche continues. “The people of Flanders have the intellectual skills it takes to develop innovative processes and provide logistics companies with the strong support they need. In addition, they are very motivated, highly educated, multilingual and extremely productive.” “Flanders Investment and Trade is dedicated to the connection between Flanders and Brazil. The organization has an unprecedented network that enables it to help companies around the world invest and obtain subsidies. Crucial to our success is the fact that they have a local office in São Paulo. From this convenient location, they guide us through the process of developing new markets and set up many diverse initiatives,” she concludes. Food companies are going places in Flanders. Connect with Flanders Investment & Trade and find out how your business can benefit.

Evans (EU) 2007 Nobel Prize in Literature: Doris Lessing (EU) 2007 Nobel Prize in Economics: Leonid Hurwicz (USA) Eric S. Maskin (USA) Roger B. Myerson (USA) Europe is gaining ground on the US in the field of innovation thanks mainly to Nordic countries leading the way. The EU-US innovation gap has been decreasing year-on-year since 2003, according to a 2006 report . The latest version of the EU's "innovation scoreboard" reveals it was the Danes, Finns, Germans and Swedes who were ahead of the pack, establishing themselves as world leaders in the field. The report also highlighted outstanding performance in life-long learning, with participation levels highest among the Swedish population at 35%, compared to Europe's overall 11%. Published by a Maastricht research institute, the scoreboard ranks the economies of 34 countries on the basis of 25 indicators, including education, investment in modern technologies, R&D expenditure and numbers of patents granted. The countries under the microscope are the US, Japan and the EU, as well as Croatia, Turkey, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland. The report identifies four main groups: Innovation leaders: Sweden, Switzerland, Finland, Denmark, Germany and Japan Innovation followers: UK, Iceland, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Ireland, US Countries catching-up: Slovenia, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Portugal, Poland, Latvia, Greece, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Romania Trailing countries: Estonia, Spain, Italy, Malta, Hungary, Croatia and Slovakia The "trailing countries" have scored well below the innovation average for the EU as a whole and require substantial investment to catch up. Luxembourg, Norway and Turkey would not fit in any of these categories. A survey by the EU's statistical office Eurostat reveals that over 40% of European companies are actively innovating, more frequently in collaboration with customers and suppliers than with universities and public research institutes.

💵 How corrupt is your country? | Counting the Cost
 
24:51
Despite efforts to tackle corruption around the world, progress is still frustratingly slow, according to the latest report from Transparency International. Its annual Corruption Perception index reveals some alarming trends. It shows public service corruption is still a huge problem for two-thirds of the world's economies. The report uses a scale of zero to 100 to rank countries: zero is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean. Syria, South Sudan and Somalia rank lowest with scores of 14, 12 and 9 respectively. New Zealand comes out on top but with a score of 89. The best performing region is western Europe with an average score of 66, while the worst performing regions are Sub-Saharan Africa and eastern Europe and Central Asia. Max Heywood, a money laundering expert at Transparency International, says "the index we published shows that out of 180 countries around the world, two-thirds of them are below the midpoint of the scale, so scoring below 50 points. This means that they have severe to quite considerable corruption risks in these countries. What this means is that the promises the government's have been making in the last years - signing up to different commitments, signing up to international agreements - are not really being put into place yet." Explaining why the US is ranked 18th on the corruption index, Heywood says, "What we see happening in the US is the growing awareness of the influence of money and politics, of the capacity of powerful interests to influence politics through campaign donations, through supporting different types of political advertising through lobbying. So there's growing awareness about the influence and the negative effect that this has on politics and through that on the lives of everyday people - so this is definitely one of the reasons of concern in the US right now." The index also shows that one journalist is killed every week in a highly corrupt country. One of the issues Heywood's organisation is looking at across the board is "the link between growing corruption or growing perceptions of corruption is the lack of civil liberties, the lack of a free press. We see this in several countries around the world where there's been a back slide because free press and free media are essential to hold governments to account. And without journalists asking questions and looking at data and informing the public about what governments are doing on their behalf, it's very difficult to get control of corruption." With regards to the Middle East, "This is a region out of the 21 countries that we've covered, 19 are below the 50 point midscale, so well below other countries in other regions in the rankings. This is again linked to the capacity of elites and powerful interests to take decisions which are not in the interest of the general population. And at the same time crack down or lack of freedom for the press, for civil society to actually ask question of those in power." "So when you look at those two things combined, it's not surprising the perceptions of public corruption in the region have not improved at all and in some cases, have actually gone backwards," says Heywood. Touching on the impact of the Panama Papers and the Paradise Papers, "For us, the Panama Papers and the Paradise Papers were actually really positive developments because it showed the power of the media and large data to illustrate at a very high scale what is going on and how corruption is actually working. It is no longer something that is seen as abstract or people are powerless to do something about this. There has been hundreds of investigations that came out of the Panama Papers and people who are on trial right now, so again, thanks to the power of the media, and the power of civil society, we're seeing how this could actually help turn the tide...We really hope journalists will continue to do their jobs, and be allowed to do their jobs, and to work with the data that's becoming increasingly available to hold governments and the powerful to account."

Scores of international election observers monitor progress of ballot in Libya
 
01:41
(7 Jul 2012) International election observers monitoring the progress of the ballot in Libya on Saturday praised the organisation of the election and voter behaviour. Libyans are voting in their first free election in nearly 60 years and observers from the European Union and the Carter Centre so far appear impressed by the way the ballot has been run. German lawmaker Alexander Graf Lambsdorff, who is heading an EU delegation of 21 observers, called the elections 'a historic day for Libya.' "The polling stations that we have been able to visit were well organised, procedures were implemented according to the law. Voters have been disciplined. There is an atmosphere of joy across the country," he said. The Carter Centre, founded by former US president Jimmy Carter, has 32 observers stationed across Libya. Team leader John Stremlau said it was "remarkable" what the Libyan government had achieved in just 11 months. "It should be a source of pride to the Libyan people, they have come so far, so quickly," he said. But the situation is not so encouraging in the east of the country where Lambsdorff said his team was "analysing and assessing" events in the town of Ajdabiya. On Saturday, protesters torched ballot boxes in 14 out of 19 polling centres in the the town, according to a former rebel commander in the area. In the oil-rich east, where there is a thriving autonomy movement, calls for a boycott and pre-election violence have cast a shadow over the vote. But in Tripoli, voters celebrated. One man urged voters to make their ballot count. "Put your life, your vote in the box. Don't neglect this opportunity. God is great!' he shouted. Saturday's vote is a key milestone in a nine-month transition toward democracy for the country after a bitter civil war that ended Gadhafi's four-decade-long rule. Many Libyans had hoped the oil-rich nation of six (m) million would quickly thrive and become a magnet for investment, but the country has suffered a virtual collapse in authority that has left formidable challenges. Armed militias still operate independently, and deepening regional and tribal divisions erupt into violence with alarming frequency. On the eve of the vote, gunmen shot down a helicopter carrying polling materials near the eastern city of Benghazi, the birthplace of the revolution, killing one election worker, said Saleh Darhoub, a spokesman for the ruling National Transitional Council. The crew survived after a crash landing. Prime Minister Abdurrahim el-Keib vowed the government would ensure a safe vote Saturday, and condemned the election worker's killing and those who seek to derail the vote.

Mark To Market Accounting  and other Q&As With ITM Trading's Lynette Zang
 
13:56
Video = Q&A With Our Chief Market Analyst Lynette Zang Flash r22flyfly -So when they massively paper short silver and gold, do they ever have to buy those shorts back? Pat Kaiser - Does the IMF own actual physical gold or is it pledged gold? James - [email protected] Hi, Lynette. I listen to your YouTube channel 2-3 times a week to help stay up to date on what's happening. What you're saying seems to be in agreement with what James Richards is saying. I heard a TedTalk from Brian Wesbury (an investment bank economist) where he asserted that the 2008 crisis was caused by reinstating "mark to market" account in 2007 and that because "mark to market" accounting was ended in 2009 by Barney Frank the recovery we've seen is legitimate and built on the backs of entrepreneurs. Would you explain your thoughts on "mark to market" accounting and its role in all the financial insanity that's occurred over the past decade?

How to Teach the 87 Phonogram Sounds
 
03:06
You can order the complete Phonograms Sounds DVD at: http://spalding.org/store/instructional.php What makes our teaching of the phonograms stand out? Many programs only teach the first sounds of the vowel, however, Spalding teaches all sounds that the letters make. By teaching all of the sounds, children have the advantage of using those immediately in all types of words with short or long vowel sounds. This is one of the reasons Spalding-taught students learn to read so quickly. They're not restricted to learning words like hat, mat, sat, fat. Instead, students learn high-frequency words that occur most often in reading and writing. That's why more and more educators are endorsing our curriculum for teaching students how to spell, write and read. One of the keys to its success is the phonogram sounds. This video contains excerpts from The Writing Road to Reading Phonograms Sounds DVD. This recently updated DVD contains 87 phonograms plus additional practice phonograms. Spalding Education International's (SEI) mission is to increase literacy for all children and adults by using The Spalding Method to develop skilled readers, critical listeners, and accomplished writers and spellers. The organization was founded in 1986 by Romalda B. Spalding, author of "The Writing Road to Reading" — a comprehensive K-6 total language arts curriculum that incorporates the teaching philosophy of The Spalding Method. SEI's program is approved by the International Dyslexia Association. Our courses are accredited by the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC) for its literacy instructional programs for teachers and Spalding teacher trainers. Classroom and resource room teachers, adult educators, as well as home educators in the United States, Canada, Australia, Central America, Europe, Singapore and Taiwan are currently using The Spalding Method. SEI is a nonprofit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) corporation based in Phoenix, Ariz. How can you achieve success with The Spalding Method? Simple. Success is achieved by those who invest in the authorized curriculum (including "The Writing Road to Reading" and Spalding's Teacher's Guides) and commit to learning how to teach the curriculum with fidelity by enrolling in Spalding's Writing Road to Reading courses. Beware of unauthorized Spalding curriculum and training. "The Writing Road to Reading" textbook, now in its 6th revised edition, has stood the test of time because IT WORKS. "The Writing Road to Reading" helps children develop essential critical thinking skills and instills a love of learning and reading that will last a lifetime. Instead of starting with minimal vocabulary basal readers, first, second and third grade students are able to read such books as Where the Wild Things Are, The Velveteen Rabbit and Charlotte's Web, respectively. Whatever their socio-economic group, ethnicity or native language (even those at Title 1 schools or those in ESL/ELL programs), this method helps all students succeed in learning how to spell, write and read. Plus, a four-year research study by Arizona State University shows it helps students achieve significantly higher achievement test scores when compared to those using mainstream reading programs. The Spalding Method is a method of teaching children how to spell, write and read that every educator and home educator needs to know about.

Stability and Progress in the Western Balkans:  Threats, Predictions, Solutions
 
02:27:09
Event Info: http://www.ned.org/events/stability-and-progress-in-the-western-balkans-threats-predictions-solutions/ Decades of international presence and investment in promoting stability and progress in the Western Balkans seem to have paid some dividends. But the full democratic consolidation of most former Yugoslav countries seems like an elusive goal. Political institutions remain weak and dominated by nationalist and populist strongmen who are polarizing societies. Endemic corruption, captured media, and public frustration plague transitions across the region. These challenges also make regional governments vulnerable to malign foreign influences. Russia, which has been expanding its geopolitical influence across the Balkans and neighboring regions, has already begun to exploit these vulnerabilities. Meanwhile, foreign fighter recruitment remains a threat in the region. Scores of veteran fighters have returned home to Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo, raising even greater security and radicalization risks, not just to these fragile states, but to the peace and stability of Europe as a whole. 2016 was particularly challenging, witnessing an escalation of domestic crises in key countries such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Serbia, and even Croatia. Neighborly relations have suffered as well. Two decades after the signing of the Dayton Peace Accords, rhetoric at both the political and grassroots levels increasingly resembles that of the early 1990s. Featuring some of the region’s leading practitioners and analysts, this event explored new threats to stability and progress in the Western Balkans, assessed upcoming challenges and opportunities, and proposed ways forward.

ADDICTED To DEBT: Global Re-Calibration of The CURRENCY Markets. INVEST IN BITCOIN / LITECOIN
 
01:48
ADDICTED To DEBT: Global Re-Calibration of The CURRENCY Markets. INVEST IN BITCOIN / LITECOIN Alex and Max Keiser continue on the topic of rigged global markets and fiat currency vs bitcoin Patrick Byrne enabled bitcoin purchases on Overstock.com earlier than planned as he wanted first mover advantage. It turned out to increase sales far more than he had expected. Silver might take 10 months to peak and 2 months or less to retrace much of its price increase. It might be a $100 billion market in the US. The market will be completely overrun and choked with silver, yielding an inventory that might not bleed off for years. The price rise will be fast; the drop will be fast was well. That's the way this always happens when smart money gets in first and dumb money comes in last. Getting out at that inflection point will be a doozy; the ride heady. Nearly everyone will be sucked in with dreams of becoming silver millionaires. Those who bought at $30-40 will be vindicated. We discuss whether or not 2014 will be one of economic and financial fallout from the 2013 Year of Bitcoin and Snowden. They look at Paul Krugman's claim that Bitcoin is evil because it's not backed by men with guns and the latest in the financial fallout from Snowden's NSA revelations in terms of contractual demands that data never enter the US. In the second half, Max interviews Barb Jacobson of basicincome2013.eu about the European Citizens Initiative for Unconditional Basic Income. Max compares it to the basic income provided to bankers through policies like quantitative easing. The Department of Justice said Robert Faiella -- known as "BTCKing" -- and Charlie Shrem from BitInstant have both been charged with money laundering. The authorities said the pair were engaged in a scheme to sell more than $1m (£603,000) in bitcoins to users of online drug marketplace the Silk Road. With over 1,000 new merchants adopting Bitcoin every week, it is perhaps not surprising that, as NY Post reports, the first Bitcoin ATM is about to debut in New York City. Following success inCanada and Europe, Brooklyn native Willard Ling, 30, is set to introduce the first bitcoin ATM to New York City at the East Village bubble tea shop 'Just Sweet'. State regulators with the Department of Financial Services are expected to hold hearings later this month to discuss how the digital currency should be regulated; and until then, Ling's bitcoin ATM will sit in his apartment. Users first download a bitcoin wallet mobile app — such as BlockChain or Mycelium — and set a password. A black-and-white QR code appears. They press the phone against the ATM's glass window so it can scan the code, then feed in cash. bitcoin litecoin "accept bitcoin" "bitcoin mining" "litecoin mining" cryptocurrency debt salary "interest rate" finite global currency markets future wages job income employment data "gold price" "sell gold" "gold coin" "silver eagle" "silver bullion" "gold bullion" "gold trading" "forex exchange" "forex trading" exchange uk u.s.

Limitations on the amount that could be mined, and on how much growth could be borrowed from the future (all debt is, is future consumption denied), is why eventually the world's central bankers moved from money backed by precious metals, to "money" backed by "faith and credit", in the process diluting both. It was the unprecedented explosion in credit money creation that resulted once money could be "printed" out of thin air that nearly destroyed the western financial system. Which brings us to Bitcoin, where currency "mining" takes place not in the earth's crust, or in the basement of the Federal Reserve, but inside supercomputers. Instead of swinging pickaxes, these custom-built machines, which are running an open-source Bitcoin program, perform complex algorithms 24 hours a day. If they come up with the right answers before competitors around the world do, they win a block of 25 new Bitcoins from the virtual currency's decentralized network. Imagine a world in which you can buy anything in secret. No banks. No fees. No worries inflation will make today's money worth less tomorrow. "There will be alternatives to the dollar, and this might be one of them," said former U.S. congressman Ron Paul. If people start using bitcoins en masse, "it'll go down in history as the destroyer of the dollar," Paul added.

Half of US Jobs Now Held by Women
 
04:00
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com Women are on their way to holding more than half of all American jobs. The latest government report shows that their share of nonfarm jobs nearly reached fifty percent in September. Not only have more and more women entered the labor market over the years, but the recession has been harder on men. In October, the unemployment rate for men was almost eleven percent, compared to eight percent for women. Industries that traditionally use lots of men have suffered deep cuts. For example, manufacturing and building lost more jobs in October. But health care and temporary employment services have had job growth. Both of those industries employ high percentages of women. Thirty years ago, women earned sixty-two cents for every dollar that men earned. Now, for those who usually work full time, women earn about eighty percent of what men earn. And women hold fifty-one percent of good-paying management and professional jobs. Yet a study released in November said men still hold about nine out of every ten top positions at the four hundred largest companies in California. The results have remained largely unchanged in five years of studies from the University of California, Davis. Also, a new research paper in the journal Sex Roles looks at the experiences of women who are the main earners in their family. Rebecca Meisenbach at the University of Missouri in Columbia interviewed fifteen women. She found they all valued their independence and many enjoyed having the power of control, though not all wanted it. But they also felt pressure, worry and guilt. That was partly because of cultural expectations that working women will still take care of the children. Also, men who are not the main earners may feel threatened. The job market continues to suffer the effects of last year's financial crash. Now, a judgment has been reached in the first case involving charges of criminal wrongdoing on Wall Street. The government lost its case against two managers at Bear Stearns, the first investment bank to fail last year. A jury found Ralph Cioffi and Matthew Tannin not guilty of lying to investors. The hedge funds they supervised lost their value in two thousand seven. But jurors said there was no clear evidence that they meant to mislead investors. The Justice Department continues to investigate other companies. And that's the VOA Special English Economics Report. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 20Nov2009)

What investors can learn from Norway
 
02:51
Hebden Consulting -- Independent Financial Consultants www.hebdenconsulting.com -- Connect with us -- LinkedIn: https://goo.gl/nV3Avx Twitter: https://goo.gl/WvuFu1 Facebook: https://goo.gl/33EQbC -- Transcript -- What investors can learn from Norway RP: Some investors like to copy the investment strategy of well-known fund managers. Others try to emulate the endowments of top American universities. But ordinary investors are probably better off learning from what the Norwegian government has done with its national pension fund. Elroy Dimson was one of the architects of what’s become known as the Norway Model. ED: Well the “Norway Model” is the name that we gave to the Norwegian way of looking after its national wealth. So they’re quite new and they’ve grown a great deal because of the oil wealth in the Sea around Norway. And, they perceive that wealth belonging to future generations. Everybody in Norway, when results come out, sees on the front of their daily paper how much wealthier they are or how much poorer they are. It’s a very transparent process and is one that has ensured that the fund is perceived by the population as really being there. Because it is theirs, for individual Norwegians and for their grandchildren and great-grandchildren when they are eventually born. RP: Transparency is hugely important. Investors need to know what they’re investing in and how much they’re paying. But there are other lessons that they can learn from the Norway Model. ED: Well, the Norwegian approach is one of going for the maximum of diversification for the minimum of cost. And, individuals can do the same thing for themselves. Norway has about 8000 different equities in their portfolio. But, an individual who puts their money into a low-cost managed fund from one of the major providers of index funds, will also have about 8000 equities in their portfolio. The individual will pay a little bit more, but it can still be remarkably inexpensive compared to alternatives. And so they can emulate what Norway does in a way which they simply couldn’t do if they wanted to emulate Yale or Harvard or Abu Dhabi. Because those are all entities that have direct investments and private equity and so forth, which isn’t open to individuals. RP: And that, in a nutshell, is how to invest like the Norwegian government. Diversify, keep your costs low and insist on absolute transparency. Governments and other institutional investors around the world are following Norway’s lead — and you can too.

Are exams the best way to test our teens? - learning world
 
10:08
Do final exam results really matter? Is a disappointing mark truly the end of the world? Obviously... euronews, the most watched news channel in Europe Subscribe for your daily dose of international news, curated and explained:http://eurone.ws/10ZCK4a Euronews is available in 13 other languages: http://eurone.ws/17moBCU http://www.euronews.com/2013/06/28/are-exams-the-best-way-to-test-our-teens Do final exam results really matter? Is a disappointing mark truly the end of the world? Obviously it is not, so what is the point? For many families the exams season brings huge stress and worry. So could we do without them altogether or are they an important evaluation of students' progress? In which case, how can people cope with the stress? This edition of Learning World examines exams. *Chinese torture* Every year millions of Chinese students sit marathon nine-hour university entrance exams, some of the toughest in the world. In an effort to revise and prepare for the exams some students will go to any lengths, including private tutors and dietary supplements. The Gaokao, China's university entrance exams, are dreaded for their ferocity, but they open a magic door to opportunity, and have become a national obsession. Last year, a set of photographs of students from Hubei collectively receiving intravenous drips to replace energy while studying for the Gaokao attracted attention all over the world. Despite its many flaws and difficulties, the Gaokao gives all bright teenagers the opportunity to become engineers or surgeons. No matter if they are poor or rich, if they come from the city or the countryside, if the students pass this exam they can become what they want. *English patience* In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, 15 and 16 year olds take GCSEs - General Certificates of Secondary Education in anything up to 10-11 subjects. Obviously the more subjects you take, the more you have to work, and it is often said that the stress can be debilitating - or do some students overstate the case? All 16-year-old students in England, Wales and Northern Ireland go to school to take exams for their GCSE. Even if two years later these students will have to take other exams to get their A levels, GCSE results can affect their future. But, surprisingly, success at university, it seems, depends more on your results at 16 than 18. *Exams, what are they good for?* Ready or not, stressed or not, final exams remain a fact of life. But are disappointing results really the death knell for career success? And are exams the best way of testing achievement anyway? Could we not just abolish them and chill out? OECD education analyst Eric Charbonnier, (educationdechifree.blog.lemonde.fr) notes that many countries copied the French "baccalaureate" model, created by Napoleon in 1808, by introducing final exams at the end of the secondary cycle. But some include continuous assessment and many different systems exist side by side, so is it still relevant to keep the baccalaureate as an international reference? The OECD experts think so. There are 34 OECD member states : Germany, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Korea, Denmark, Spain, Estonia, United States, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Noway, New-Zealand, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, and Turkey. According to OECD reports on education, the cost to individuals and society of young people leaving school without a qualification keeps rising. The OECD calls for "all means" to be taken to "avoid the risk of a lost generation". Across the 21 EU countries covered by the OECD report, an average of 75 per cent of the population aged 25-64 has at least an upper secondary education, compared to an OECD-wide average of 73 per cent. The best-performing EU countries were Finland, Ireland, Portugal, Slovenia and the UK, where secondary-school graduation rates all equal or exceed 90 per cent. Young women are more likely to complete upper secondary education than young men in all EU members of the OECD except Germany. Based on current graduation trends, 82 per cent of young people in the OECD today will complete upper secondary education, but those who fail to do so will face ever-greater challenges in entering and remaining in the job market. For instance, unemployment rose much more dramatically during the crisis among those without upper secondary qualifications than it did among degree holders. OECD researchers conclude that government budgets benefit from investment in education in the long term because the better-educated are less likely to need unemployment benefits or welfare assistance, and pay more taxes when employed.
