From education, recruitment, training and product development, Jordan is going full steam ahead with new plans to better appeal and cater to more markets around the world, especially in emerging markets including China, India and South America. Speaking at the 2012 International Conference on ‘Seizing Tourism Market Opportunities in Times of Rapid Change’, a panel of industry experts discussed new ways that would focus on enhancing the four pillars of tourism in Jordan including regulatory development bodies, product chains, enhancements of sites and marketing efforts of tour operators selling Jordan.One of the key developments for Jordan is the education and training processes. With tourism contributing to the highest employment of people in Jordan, the industry is aiming to directly employ 52,000 people in tourism by 2015. And to do that, the ministry of tourism has implemented a few strategies including rolling out tourism campaigns to provide better brand visibility, while offering tourism programs and vocational apprenticeships to students. To complement that, tour guides are encouraged to learn a new language to help them better communicate with their guests from the likes of China, Japan, India, Russia, South America and other new markets.In the larger picture, the tourism board is looking to moving away from combined packages with other regional countries, and partnering with other countries including those in Europe and Asia instead, to help recover tourism numbers lost as a result of civil unrests in the region over the last two years. The board is also planning to better position itself as a stand-alone destination as more and more people are staying longer during their visit to Jordan (up to two weeks per visit).Recognising niche markets and interests including cycling, voluntourism, eco-tourism and adventure, new products and activities are also being developed to help better position the country in the eyes of the different niche travel markets. Another large focus in the ongoing tourism development for these new markets is medical and wellness tourism. With the highest number of doctors per capita in the world, 12,000 beds and ranking 5th in the world for international guests, the country is looking at more effectively promoting its natural assets – the dead sea and it’s high concentration of Oxygen (10% higher than anywhere else in the world) to attract women, spa seekers and those looking to treat skin diseases such as psoriasis. In terms of giving interested travellers a glimpse of Jordan, a number of live webcams will be installed at key sites to provide interested travellers real-time images of the sites and the activities taking place. This is particularly aimed at instilling confidence in the travellers of the security and stability in Jordan. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: L.T read more

food stamps Medicaid and public housing to survive" Sanders tweeted earlier this month "That is what a rigged economy looks like" On Twitter Thursday Bezos said he would create a "Families Fund" that would "issue annual leadership awards to organizations and civic groups doing compassionate needle-moving work to provide shelter and hunger support to address the immediate needs of young families"A separate "Academies Fund" would open and operate "a network of high-quality full-scholarship Montessori-inspired preschools in underserved communities" he wroteBezos’ announcement comes on the heels of a number of high-profile philanthropic efforts by the country’s tech billionaires In 2010 Buffett and Gates created the Giving Pledge which calls on billionaires to pledge the majority of their wealth to charity Nearly 200 people from 22 countries have signed on including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg Tesla’s Elon Musk Carl Icahn T Boone Pickens and Ted Turner (Noticeably absent from the list: Bezos whose fortune has already increased by more than $60 billion in the last year according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index)Zuckerberg who founded Facebook a decade after Bezos created Amazon said three years ago that he and his wife Priscilla Chan would eventually give away 99 percent of their Facebook shares — worth $45 billion at the time — to efforts including eliminating "all disease in our children’s lifetime"Charitable giving has become particularly important experts say amid rising income inequality in the United States"We live in an age in which the winners have done incredibly well and perhaps the majority of working Americans haven’t" said Anand Giridharadas author of "Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World" "So when someone like Jeff Bezos admirably steps into the area of giving it’s helpful but we also have systematic problems in wages and labor healthcare and education that need to be addressed at the root"Last year Bezos took to Twitter to request ideas for how he use his vast fortune for good He wrote that he wanted to help "people in the here and now – short term – at the intersection of urgent need and lasting impact"In coming to his decision on what areas to pursue he said on Twitter Thursday that he wanted to continue finding ways to improve society from one generation to the next "Where’s the good in the world and how can we spread it" he wrote "Where are the opportunities to make things better These are exciting questions"He cited his work at his space company Blue Origin and his investment estimated now at $1 billion a year "in the future of our planet and civilization through the development of foundational space infrastructure" He said he was supporting "American democracy through stewardship of the Washington Post" and pointed to the contributions he has given to cancer research marriage equality and college scholarships for immigrant studentsAt the Economic Club discussion Thursday night in response to a question from moderator David Rubenstein about President Trump’s critical statements about The Post Bezos said public officials shouldn’t lash out at the news media"If you’re the president of the United States you don’t take that job thinking you’re not going to be scrutinized" Bezos said adding that he’d had "a couple of conversations" with Donald Trump though he declined to elaborate "You’re going to get scrutinized and it’s healthy What the president should say is ‘This is right this is good I’m glad I’m being scrutinized’ That would be so secure and confident But it’s really dangerous to demonize the media It’s dangerous to call the media low-lifes It’s dangerous to say they’re the enemy of the people"Discussing the preschools he would be funding Bezos said he would focus on children the way Amazon does its customers"The customer is going to be the child" Bezos said "The secret sauce of Amazon — the number one thing that has made us successful has by far is obsessive compulsive focus on the customer We’re going to be obsessively compulsively focused on the child We’re going to be scientific when we can be and we’re going to use heart and intuition when we have to"Philanthropy experts called Bezos’ approach direct and pragmatic but said its success would depend largely on how the money was allocated and how willing the billionaire was to make changes along the way"There’s been a movement away from band-aid solutions" said Ray Madoff director of the Boston College Law School Forum on Philanthropy and the Public Good "Bezos’ response reflects the reality that people feel which is that there are a lot of real problems not being addressed"Avo Makdessian a vice president at the Silicon Valley Community Foundation a non-profit that manages donations for philanthropists including many tech billionaires said he hoped Bezos’ pledge would help inspire other wealthy Americans — as well as the government — to take similar action"We’re hoping that local state and federal governments see this as a call to invest more in preschool and childcare" he said "Frankly philanthropy can’t fund all of society’s challenges"This article was written by

Sabharwal | Published: March 2 2015 12:24 am It is critical to celebrate the budget’s announcement of the most impactful labour reform since Independence — a radical revamp of India’s dysfunctional employee benefits regime which currently murders formal employment Related News Dadabhai Naoroji’s speech on poverty in 1893 to the Indian National Congress session in Lahore laid the foundations of Indian nationalism by articulating his “drain” narrative which exposed the colonial system as being not only unable to improve the conditions of the poor but also instrumental in keeping Indians poor Over the past decade we had forgotten that politics is all about narratives In the last few days the budget speech the Economic Survey and the prime minister’s speech in Parliament have articulated three narratives that represent radical ruptures: policy will pray at the altar of jobs; technology-enabled cash transfers as income are more effective than price subsidies; and the Central government will partner with the states to create a strong nation These contrast sharply with the three narratives of the previous government: poverty would be reduced through subsidies rather than jobs; subsidies would be used to lower prices despite leaky delivery systems; and strong states lead to a weak nation which converted India’s high-growth low-inflation economy into a low-growth high-inflation economy The three new political and policy narratives lay the foundation of employing India Before examining employment initiatives it is critical to celebrate the budget’s announcement of the most impactful labour reform since Independence — a radical revamp of India’s dysfunctional employee benefits regime which currently murders formal employment America’s pension fund market traces its growth to the passing of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (Erisa) The finance minister may have just passed the Indian equivalent of the Erisa by his radical surgery to the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) and the Employee State Insurance (ESI) One hundred per cent of net job creation in the last 20 years has happened in informal jobs because our mandatory benefits regime requires employers to deduct 45 per cent of salary for employees with salaries upto Rs 15000 per month for programmes that “don’t have clients but have hostages” This regime breeds informal employment because employees can’t live on half their salary The EPFO not only operates the world’s most expensive government securities mutual fund (440 basis points) but its 45 million dormant accounts are the children of an architecture that does not offer backpack benefits that are easily portable between employers The ESI not only offers India’s health insurance programme with the worst claims ratio (45 per cent) but sits on cash reserves of Rs 32000 crore This budget proposes to make the employee provident fund voluntary for low-wage employees (it is already voluntary for high-wage employees) and creates competition for the EPFO and the ESI by allowing employees the choice of paying their contribution to the National Pension Scheme and any IRDA-regulated health insurance programme This choice for employees in how they allocate invest or spend their salaries will lead to the creation of a modern benefits market and a massive increase in formal employment because the regulatory arbitrage of benefitswill become less attractive necessary or practical India is a hostile habitat for entrepreneurship; the budget has much to do to make it a fertile habitat for job creation The fiscal discipline roadmap will bring down the cost of capital for entrepreneurs and reduce the painful divergence between real and nominal wages caused by inflation that is killing labour migration The reduced corporate tax rate and the phasing out of exemptions will reduce litigation corruption and ambiguity The new bankruptcy code will increase the velocity of asset recirculation and make entrepreneurial failure less of the perpetual coma sentence it is today There is no such thing as India’s land and labour markets and giving the states more money (62 per cent of total tax receipts) should be accompanied by giving them more power and encouragement to amend their land and labour laws The disappointment with the lack of labour law reform is misplaced — touching hire and fire in Delhi invites an antibiotic reaction — and the states should use the constitutional route opened up by Rajasthan Small entrepreneurs cannot substitute for the state so the focus on roads and power will substantially expand productivity and impact our firm-size distribution by producing more babies (firms that are small but will grow) rather than dwarfs (firms that are small and will stay small) Budget-makers will get many duas from job creators if they implement the ease of doing business plans but it must be acknowledged that these are trickier because they involve migration from flick-of-pen legislative reforms to building state capacity The most magnificent part of this budget was the speech The narrative structure and superb style make it clear that the speechwriter was substantially more skilled than last year’s because of the fine balance between poetry (aspiration and ideals) and prose (specific plans) The previous government tried to govern in poetry; a member of the National Advisory Council once told me “Your focus on plumbing is a lack of ambition” The budget’s changes to the benefits regime are the biggest labour law reform since Independence and arein the realm of plumbing Despite their humble origins theywill have more impact than the Rs 2 lakh crore already spenton the MGNREGA India has always deserved and needed a more adventurous and execution-oriented state but has not often had one A 13th Finance Commission member recently wrote about the boldness of the 14th Finance Commission implying that earlier finance commissions knew what to do but didn’t because of the lack of courage The political retirement of former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda a few days ago was accompanied by his urging “the prime minister to implement the initiatives taken by me when I was prime minister” With all due respect to a seasoned politician the notion that somebody should get credit for “initiating” things 20 years ago

comments made by the Minister of Defence Mr Manohar Parrikar and his counterpart Mr Ashton Carter Top News Last week India and the United States quietly signed the Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA) The agreement had been under discussion since 2002 NDA I and the UPA government especially the Ministry of Defence under Mr A K Antony were not in favour The Congress party too had reservations The Left parties stoutly opposed the proposal The discussions dragged on The US laid stress on the fact that it had signed the Logistics Support Agreement (LSA) with a hundred countries What has been signed between India and the US is not LSA but a modified version called LEMOA Obviously both sides have yielded to each other’s concerns The agreement has not been made public We only have a press release and some comments made by the Minister of Defence Mr Manohar Parrikar and his counterpart Mr Ashton Carter Both were at pains to emphasise that the agreement was not a ‘military pact’ Who Needs Whom More At present we can draw our conclusions preliminary of course only on the basis of the press release The agreement is in two parts: one part deals with obligations that have been agreed upon and the other part deals with obligations that may be undertaken on a case-by-case basis There are five situations in which both sides are obliged to provide logistics support They are: * authorised port visits; * joint exercises; * joint training; * humanitarian assistance; and * disaster relief The question is how likely is it that India will call upon the US to provide logistics support How often is an Indian long-range vessel (we have one aircraft carrier) likely to visit a US port How often is an IAF aircraft likely to operate far beyond Indian bases and why would they do so As far as humanitarian assistance or disaster relief is concerned are Indian personnel likely to be deployed in the Americas or Europe In my view Indian defence forces are not likely to be deployed in any theatre even in peace time beyond our borders with Pakistan China Nepal Bangladesh and Myanmar — at best they may go near Sri Lanka or Maldives In any of those situations there is little or nothing that the US can offer in terms of logistics support under the agreement On the other hand the US is more likely to need India’s port services and logistics support The US’s theatres of operation are all over the world including the Middle East Asia-Pacific region and the South China Sea US vessels and aircraft are routinely deployed in these theatres for reconnaissance surveillance and sometimes even as a deterrent operation Only time will tell which side calls upon the other side to provide logistics support and how often That the US has entered into one hundred such agreements and India has signed its first such agreement is sufficient indication of who needs it more A Significant Shift The definition of logistics support is unexceptionable but it is the unexceptionable that sometimes becomes the unthinkable ‘Logistics Support Supplies and Services’ is defined to include food water billeting transportation petroleum oils lubricants clothing communication services medical services storage services training services spare parts and components repair and maintenance services calibration services and port services On the face of it there is nothing wrong with that list How will it be applied in practice is the million dollar question Take for example ‘billeting’ The dictionary meaning of the word is “a place where troops are lodged” Then there are services like communication services storage services training services repair and maintenance services and calibration services Will US troops be lodged in India Is it likely that the logistics services will be allowed to be provided by Indians to US defence services such as warships combat aircraft US Marines or Navy Seals Will not the US demand that Americans (usually defence personnel) be allowed to enter India to provide these services to their men and equipment If that happens will it not be the first time that India would have allowed foreign defence personnel to be stationed on Indian soil (maybe temporarily) The other part of the agreement is the ‘may be undertaken’ part According to the press release “logistics support for any other cooperative efforts shall only be provided on a case-by-case basis” So far so good but the two countries appear to have tacitly agreed to enlarge the cooperation between the defence forces of the two countries More Then Handshake Sure LEMOA is not a military pact Nevertheless it is a fair conclusion that it is more than a handshake between the two countries they have embraced each other The world is watching especially Russia which has been our main supplier so far and China LEMOA will certainly be seen as an Indian endorsement of the US policy of ‘pivot to Asia’ That is why editorials and commentators have cautioned that enhanced defence cooperation — following the designation of India by the US as a ‘major defence partner’ — should not affect India’s strategic military neutrality or ability to pursue an independent foreign policy The exhortations are valid because the US is keen to sign two more ‘foundational agreements’ — the Communications Interoperability & Security Memorandum of Agreement and the Basic Exchange & Cooperation Agreement If the government believes that LEMOA is indeed reciprocal — not merely in its words but in the benefits that will accrue to both countries — it should make the document public and invite a public debate Website: pchidambaramin @Pchidambaram_IN For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Benita Chacko | Mumbai | Published: May 28 2017 3:30 am Top News With the Bombay High Court refusing to restrain the Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC) from cutting trees across the city for the construction of Metro 3 on Friday activists said they had run out of options While hearing a plea by a Worli resident Kunal Birwadkar the court observed that there was no need for a stay and the MMRC should carry on with the work “We have exhausted all our options to save the city’s trees If only the chief minister had kept his word and insisted that the MMRC does more to save the trees But now it is too late” said Nina Verma the petitioner who had first approached the high court Verma along with other activists had approached the high court in February and managed to obtain a stay on all tree cutting activities along the Metro 3 lines However three months later the court vacated the stay on May 5 giving the petitioners 10 days to approach the Supreme Court The matter was soon disposed of by the apex court that allowed petitioners to approach a committee of two high court judges with grievances But before the Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court could set up the committee the metro implementing body began cutting trees The activists have pinned all hopes on the committee to save the remaining trees “It should be set up by Monday The MMRC has already cut many trees but we hope that the committee will help us save whatever is left We just want them to ensure that only those trees are cut that are absolutely necessary” said Zoru Bhatena a tree activist While the court has posted the matter for the next hearing on June 5 Bhatena has little hope that it will yield to anything further Birwadkar is optimistic that the committee will address their issues “I approached the court after I noticed that the contractors were cutting trees that had been marked for transplantation Once the matter was before the court they rubbed off the tree numbers making it difficult for us to know which tree was to be cut and which had to be transplanted” he said “These issues could have been addressed by the committee if it had been set up Hopefully they will take action to save the remaining trees” he added However the activists fear that the MMRC will cut most of the trees even before the committee is set up to avoid further trouble “If you look at the way they are cutting trees at Churchgate there seems to be no plan The only agenda seems to be to hack as many trees as possible so that the need to save trees doesn’t arise at all They are out with a vengeance now” says Ashwin Nagpal a Churchgate resident In a public appeal published in the newspapers on Saturday the MMRC has sought public co-operation for the project and stated that the stay has been vacated by the Bombay High Court and Supreme Court after satisfying themselves that the metro implementing body has all the needed permissions to cut the trees They have further stated that they would be transplanting 1727 trees and cutting 1074 trees To compensate they will be planting 3222 trees and after completing the construction they will plant more trees on the same sites from where they were chopped off All trees will be maintained for a period of three years However these figures do not include trees to be cut in Aarey Colony for construction of the car depot Owing to the public demand to save the trees the MMRC had decided to rework the design of the car depot saving 5 hectare area It is yet to complete the survey to find out how many trees will be lost in the remaining 25 hectare

Humiliation from the World War II defeat accompanied by atomic devastation made them determined to beat the West Rising from wartime ashes the Japanese performed the post-war economic “miracle” from 1950 to 1960 to become the world’s second-most powerful economy in less than a decade It was a collective national willingness to change the quality perception and reality of Japanese products They understood then that claiming to be inventors may not be their route Instead they paid attention on how to adapt European and American invention in a different scale of aspiration to surpass the global customer’s expectation From being fancy but tacky and of flimsy quality Japanese products have since become the world’s benchmark in quality In one of my several visits to Japan on work I got hungry seeing a Yakitori restaurant signboard in the heart of Tokyo’s commercial district I followed its directional arrow through a narrow staircase to the first floor The restaurant chef was cooking healthy delicious hot food surrounded on three sides by customers sitting on bar stools Behind them were small tables stuck to the wall filled with people but nothing looked overcrowded The condiments the chef needed were in a glass case behind him and neatly arranged below that were raw ingredients frequently replenished Even if you don’t speak Japanese it’s not a problem Every dish was communicated with beautiful detailed pictures The Japanese menu was translated into English in small letters Between two persons sitting at the bar or at small tables is a set of interconnected sauce and spice bottles that fit into a wedged carrier Every tiny bottle has puzzle designs on it When I asked the chef about these designs he explained how they serve functionality You can’t place the bottles anywhere you wantas the design integrates them into their carrier It’s the best time space and convenience management crockery I’ve seen Guests get attracted to it play with it and arrange it correctly They never keep any bottle outside the carrier That saves the waiter’s time and looks neat From procurement of raw products to servicing crockery sealed wet napkins to multiple usage of the arranged sauce carrier there’s no wastage of time or space in the 700 sq ft that’s considered among the best Yakitori restaurants in Tokyo This is unique miniaturisation in gastronomy Having experienced the elaborate regal way the French come up with delicious food served in a sophisticated manner this miniaturisation was incredible The comparison with gigantic American restaurants and serving portions also instantly hit me head on Do you know the 1957 Toyopet story Japan war-torn and labelled “bad” quality had the guts to enter the US challenging its gigantic car culture by offering a small car The Toyopet name which connoted toys and pets was dropped But the Japanese managed to impose the mini-car culture of low-cost maintenance where of course the 1973 global petrol crises helped a lot Apart from Volkswagen Beetle no small car could market in America the way the Japanese did High awareness of hygiene and sanitary conditions is another aspect that makes Japanese design so clean When industries there took the challenge to improve product quality they somehow neglected safety Improper handling of industrial waste resulted in Japan’s “four big pollution diseases” like itai-itai (earlier in 1912) which caused bone fractures and kidney disorders minamata (1956) and niigata minamata (1965) that afflicted the central nervous system making patients insane and yokkaichi asthma (1961) that caused chronic bronchitis From here Japan became aware that chasing extreme economic growth could harm them harshly that Mother Nature would get her own back That’s when corporations started CSR to preserve and protect the environment Researching on how to sell French luxury alcohol Remy Martin’s armangnac in Japan my friends there suggested I learn about the Japanese art of drinking by visiting their special bars frequented by top corporate managers after work These bars were small but outstandingly well embellished not glitzy They serve high-end European drinks although the local sake comprised 80 per cent of the market in the 1990s Sophistication in this small space from the barman to the crockery to ice cubes shaped in a special mould was unforgettable As armangnac was an ancient drink of the French monks I had designed a glass bottle with the hammered effect and shape of a Middle Ages Catholic temple The transparent plastic cap is elaborate like a chandelier Interacting with people at the bar they immediately liked the glass bottle but said the intricate cap made it lose its Middle Ages authenticity To make it classy they advised it had to be changed to glass Because of the iPod it seems like miniaturisation started in the US In reality when European or American tape recorders were still large Japan had begun

possessed a famously calm demeanor and remained almost emotionless for better parts of matches Bjorg was also the superstar of his time and is widely credited with increasing the popularity of the sport Their contrasting personalities and public image meant that the rivalry was often described as “Fire and Ice” The most famous match-up between the two was the men’s singles final at the 1980 Wimbledon widely rated as the greatest Tennis match of all time McEnroe came into the match as the heel and was booed by the crowd mainly due to the heated exchanges he had with the officials during his semi-finals against Jimmy Connors The match was played accross five sets with the fourth set tie breaker lasting 20 minutes McEnroe was the man who won at the end of the 20 minutes but he was

Warriors achieved what many thought was impossible: they won 73 of the 82 regular season games trumping even the 72-10 record of Michael Jordan’s mighty 1995-96 Chicago Bulls Coming off the 2015 championship win the 2015-16 Warriors team was historically great on both ends of the floor featured the league’s first and only unanimous MVP (Stephen Curry) two of the greatest shooters of all-time (Curry and Klay Thompson) a superstar defender and playmaker (Draymond Green) and a deep pool of role players to aid them in their success Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers players in action during the 4th quarter in game five of the 2017 NBA Finals Reuters Alas like every true NBA fan knows regular season success is just that: regular 73 and nine didn’t mean a thing without that ring After stuttering throughout the play-offs the Warriors collapsed in incredible fashion in the 2016 NBA Finals squandering a 3-1 series lead to lose 3-4 to LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers The greatness of the regular season the records the race for immortality – all of them were blocked in spectacular fashion by James The Warriors known until then for their culture of joyful carefree basketball headed into an off-season of serious soul-searching That particular mourning period didn’t last long Exactly two weeks after the heart-breaking game seven loss in the Finals the Warriors received a gift of their wildest imaginations On 4 July Kevin Durant – a former league MVP an all-time great scorer and 2016’s hottest free agent target – left Oklahoma City Thunder to join Golden State Within minutes the death knell for the entire upcoming season for the other teams was rung: on paper at least Durant in the Warriors spelled trouble for the rest of the NBA Basketball games however aren’t won on paper and the Warriors had to prove that their newly-formed dream team of Durant Curry Thompson Green and more could actually work on court Expectations were high and the price of failure was always going to be humiliation way more drastic than the “3-1” memes Eleven-and-a-half months later consider those expectations met and then some No these Warriors didn’t win 73 regular season games like last year’s squad; they merely “settled” for 67 still the best record in the league and one of the most impressive regular season outings in history What the regular season did show was that it was laughably easy for coach Steve Kerr to incorporate Durant into a team that specialised in passing shooting and small-ball defence Despite missing 19 games to injury Durant showcased enough of his brilliance to put all doubts of his fit in Golden State to rest While Curry didn’t have another MVP season he once again was the true heartbeat of the team running the show from the point guard position All four of their core players made the Western Conference All Star squad But the real higher gear of this Warriors ensemble was saved for the play-offs Golden State swept the first three rounds winning every game except one by double digits (shed a tear for Kawhi Leonard) before meeting their old nemesis the Cavaliers in the Finals again This time there were no more mistakes: the Cavs had been on a historically great play-off run themselves but Golden State made them look like just another team winning the Finals 4-1 and capping off their play-off run with an all-time best 16-1 record Some could argue that the Warriors faced considerably weaker competition in their earlier rounds: Trail Blazers Jazz and Spurs mostly without Leonard But it was the ease with which they handled Cleveland – the defending champions featuring a historically great talent in James All Stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love and a deep bench of offensive firepower – that elevates this Golden State team into the territory of the greatest NBA teams ever While they are chiefly known for their long-range shooting the true genius of these Warriors lies in their ability to share the ball to always find the most efficient scoring option This is the reason why they once again led the league in assists per game in both the regular season and the play-offs Finding the open man helped them shoot at the highest efficiency of any team in the post season (494 percent) while also leading all play-off teams in scoring and steals and finishing second in rebounds to Chicago Bulls (who only played six play-off games) Their eventual point differential over the 17-game post season run was a scintillating +1353 second only in history to Milwaukee Bucks in 1971 And it was at the biggest stage in pro basketball – the NBA Finals – that the Warriors showcased the embarrassment of riches in their arsenal Averaging a series-high 352 points to go with 84 rebounds shooting over 55 percent from the floor and playing stellar defence Durant ended up as the Finals MVP Not far behind was Curry who played some of the best basketball of his career and averaged 268 points 94 assists and 80 rebounds over the series Thompson pitched in 164 points while Green averaged a triple-double (110 points 102 rebounds) and both of them were at the top of their defensive game throughout most of the series The Cavaliers were built to score but failed to stop Golden State on the defensive end The Warriors’ clinching advantage in this series thus became their own defence: over the past three years Golden State have been at a historic pace offensively but have also been one of the NBA’s finest teams in terms of defensive efficiency The ability of players like Green and Durant to switch and play elite defence while going big or small allowed the Warriors to keep this balance on both ends of the court Of course there were invaluable role players supporting the star power throughout the season and in the Finals for the Warriors too Former Finals MVP Andre Iguodala Shaun Livingston Zaza Pachulia David West and Ian Clark all stepped up to support Golden State’s play-off motto of “strength in numbers” At the very top in Durant and Curry the 2016-17 Warriors featured one of the greatest duos in NBA history two MVP calibre players playing and succeeding together at the peak of their powers with skills that complemented each other’s greatness They can add their name to legendary on-court pairs like Jordan and Pippen Russell and Cousy Shaq and Kobe Magic and Kareem and LeBron and Wade The 2016-17 Warriors were so good that they sparked a legitimate debate to be counted among the greatest teams of all time It takes perspective to rank how the greatness of certain teams stand over time but the Warriors have done enough to prove that they could stand in the company of the other great NBA units through history like the 1960s Celtics the 1971 Bucks the 1983 76ers the 1996 Bulls the mid-80s Celtics and Lakers the early 2000 Lakers and the 2012-2013 Heat For the longest time I held the 1996 Bulls – with Jordan Pippen Rodman Kukoc Harper and others – in reverence as the greatest team of all time But the 2017 Warriors have shown me enough to commit basketball blasphemy and admit that they may be even better The Cavaliers were a great team for 2017; the Warriors were a great team for all of basketball history And that essentially was the difference in these Finals The scariest part The core talent behind Golden State’s success are all under 30 all in their prime all confident in their success together and all likely to improve on-court team chemistry as time passes Yes one of the greatest teams ever is probably going to be even better next season Enjoy the show

prior to thatthe euro crisis was presentbut of considerably lower magnitude The second explanation is everyones favourite anti-growth and pro-inflation policies meted out by the socialist welfare state at the Centre The third explanation has to do with the anti-growth policies of RBI It is this last explanation that is the focus of this article The question to be examined is whether the 225 basis point hike in repo rates engineered by RBI was warranted As a backgroundit is appropriate to note that the Technical Advisory Committee of the RBI advocated a grand total of only 45 basis points (weighted average of all the recommendations) in the entire year RBI exceeded this advice by 180 basis points Did such an increase in interest rates have no effect on growth If it didwas any inflation slowdown achieved to compensate for the sharp fall in growth These are the questions that deserve an explanation There are two concerns a good central bank (GCB) should have growth and inflation Furtherit is recommended that a GCB should act in a pro-cyclical manner In other wordswhen growth is uncomfortably lowit should lower rates to increase demand; when inflation is uncomfortably highit should raise rates to counter this excess A GCB spends a lot of time and effort to determine the nature of inflation; in particularwhether it is cost-push or demand-pull It pays to know in order to understand the potency of interest rates Rate changes are most effective in a demand world; they are impotent in a cost-push world At the beginning of 2011RBI was faced with an economy with inflation higher than warrantedand growth at trend Expectations were that GDP and industrial growth would stay in the 85 per cent-plus rangeand WPI inflation would trend downwards from the 94 per cent inflation observed in December 2010 Core inflation (WPI manufacturing non-food) was also high at 62 per centsome 2 per cent above its long-term trend rate The repo rate in January 2011 was at 625 per centvery close to its average of 67 per cent Soall things consideredRBI could raise rates by about 50 basis points; this would bring the repo rate close to the long-term averagewould help bring inflation downand would not hurt growth too much The table lists the decisions of RBI on a quarterly basisalong with associated data on GDP growthindustrial productionWPI and core inflation Data are presented for both year-on-year as well as a six-month moving average of six-month seasonally adjusted data The latter computation incorporates information for one whole yearbut gives higher weight to more recent observations Between January and end-October 2011RBI raised rates a cumulative 225 basis points Throughout this periodyear-on-year industrial production growth precipitously declined from 8 per cent to 5 per cent Overall WPI inflation stayed steady at around 96 per centwhile core inflation stayed in a narrow range of +/- 06 percentage points around 76 per cent At the time of the last rate hike in Octoberthe last available observation to the RBI mandarinsIIP growth at 4 per cent was less than half its trend valueand WPIand core inflationwere at the pre-January 2011 levels Two hundred and twenty five basis points and RBI achieved precious little in terms of lower inflation but did achieve a lot in terms of lower growth It is also informative to look at the supporting reasoning of the serial rate hiking spree RBI indulged in 2011 On September 162011RBI raised rates by 25 basis points from a large 8 per cent level to an even larger 825 per cent level This is what RBI said in its monetary policy statement justifying the hike: The index of industrial production (IIP) slowed from 88 per cent year-on-year in June to 33 per cent in July Howeverexcluding capital goodsthe growth of IIP was higher at 67 per cent in July as compared with 44 per cent in June?

| Washington | Published: April 15 2017 11:11 am US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping shake hands during a dinner at Mar-a-Lago Thursday April 6 2017 in Palm Beach Fla (AP/ PTI) Top News The Trump administration has officially declined to brand China a currency manipulator in another major U-turn for the US president who had repeatedly pledged during his campaign to do so soon after taking office The reversal by the Treasury department was one of the almost half-a-dozen instances when Donald Trump or his administration have gone back on his poll campaign promises On the campaign trail Trump had called NATO “obsolete” But this week he said NATO was no longer obsolete His stance on Russia and Syrian President Bashar-al Assad has also done a 180 Yesterday the Treasury department in its six-monthly report to the Congress placed China Germany Japan Korea Switzerland and Taiwan in the “monitoring list” of countries that needed close attention for their currency practices The move was expected as Trump earlier this week had said that China was not a currency manipulator The department however said that both China and Germany should do more to reduce their large trade surpluses with the US In a statement the Treasury department said the findings and recommendations of the report are intended to combat “potentially unfair currency practices” and support the growth of free and fair trade “The US cannot and will not bear the burden of an international trading system that unfairly disadvantages our exports and unfairly advantages the exports of our trading partners through artificially distorted exchange rates” it said “Expanding trade in a way that is freer and fairer for all Americans requires that other economies avoid unfair currency practices and we will continue to monitor this carefully” said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin The opposition Democratic Party leaders slammed Trump administration for going back on its poll promise “Unfortunately the president’s failure to name China a currency manipulator is symptomatic of a lack of real tough action on trade against China China steals our intellectual property doesn’t let American companies compete in China and has manipulated their currency causing the loss of millions of jobs” said Senate Minority Leader Charles E Schumer He said China may not be manipulating their currency “at the moment because it doesn’t suit their economic needs” but “make no mistake about it as soon as the tide turns they will” he said adding that the Trump has given them a “green light to steal our jobs” Schumer also said that the best way to get China to cooperate on North Korea was to be tough on them with trade which is first thing the Chinese government “cares about” During the campaign Trump had often claimed that China was manipulating its currency to boost exports costing the United States manufacturing jobs He had promised to label the country a currency manipulator on ‘Day One’ of his presidency But the reversal could also mean that Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping may have figured a way to fix the trade imbalance and the tension in the Korean peninsula during their meeting earlier this month in Florida The two leaders also had a telephonic call on Wednesday when they discussed the situations in North Korea and Syria The Treasury department however alleged that China has a long track record of engaging in persistent large-scale one-way foreign exchange intervention doing so for roughly a decade to resist renminbi (RMB) appreciation even as its trade and current account surpluses soared “China continues to pursue a wide array of policies that limit market access for imported goods and services and maintains a restrictive investment regime which adversely affects foreign investors” it said It said it will scrutinise China’s trade and currency practices very closely especially in light of the extremely sizable bilateral trade surplus that China has with the US “China will need to demonstrate that its lack of intervention to resist appreciation over the last three years represents a durable policy shift by letting the RMB rise with market forces once appreciation pressures resume” it said For all the latest World News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Express News Service | Kolkata | Published: June 24 2010
