Welcome - publicdata.eu Oxford University study suggests world poverty is rapidly shrinking Poverty levels in Nepal, Rwanda and Bangladesh have dropped Report predicts some of the poorest countries in the world could see acute poverty eradicated within 20 years By Daily Mail Reporter Published: 17:47 GMT, 17 March 2013 | Updated: 08:26 GMT, 18 March 2013 World poverty is shrinking and developing countries are becoming less poor according to a new study by Oxford University. Nepal, Rwanda and Bangladesh were the 'star performers' of the 22-country study carried out by the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI), followed by Ghana, Tanzania, Cambodia and Bolivia. The report predicts that some of the poorest countries in the world could see acute poverty eradicated within 20 years. The department measured poverty by using a new term called the Multidimensional Poverty Index, or MPI. It measures the intensity of different deprivations that poor people face including nutrition, education and sanitation and not just income.

perspective.usherbrooke.ca De Lille à Marseille, les prix de l’immobilier dans 15 grandes villes de France -Nantes : Le prix du mètre carré est revenu à son niveau de 2008 La crise n’est plus qu’un souvenir. Les prix ont encore grimpé de 9% en un an, remettant le mètre carré à son niveau de 2008 (2 500 euros). Il est vrai que la demande a bondi, poussant les propriétaires à gonfler la valeur de leur bien. «Certains affichent même des surcotes de 30% par rapport au marché. Ils ne sont pas près de trouver preneur», note Nicolas Martinez, de Guy Hoquet l’Immobilier. C’est au cœur de la ville que les tarifs sont les plus fous : de 3 000 à 3 500 euros le mètre carré pour les vastes appartements haussmanniens. Les maisons avec jardin sont rares.

Trade years of life to make the whole world healthier - opinion - 08 April 2013 Read full article Continue reading page |1|2 To solve the tragedy of child mortality we need to set up an international market in ill health ABOUT 6 million children under 5 die from infectious diseases each year. This tragedy is a result of two fundamental problems in global health: money and support from richer countries are insufficient; and the available funds are often not used efficiently. Why does this happen? At present, global health investment is voluntary and few countries make sizeable donations. Is there a way to improve the situation? Battling climate change is also a public good that is vulnerable to free riding. In a typical carbon market, countries have their emissions capped and are issued tradeable permits. Likewise, it is much cheaper to save a life in a poor country than it is in a rich country. For such a market to work, we need something to be traded. How many DALYs would donors need to buy? Here's how. How many? New Scientist Not just a website! More from the web

Cost of cuts: Austerity's toxic genetic legacy - health - 10 April 2013 Editorial: "The hidden costs of austerity" FROM financial breakdown in Portugal to the UK's so-called bedroom tax, the harsh effects of austerity measures are hitting people in ways unseen in decades. Many are focused on the most imminent challenges to their well-being – increased costs of living and job security, for example. But new insights into how genes linked with disease are triggered in times of stress suggest that we should be paying just as much attention to the long-term effects of austerity on our health. The more immediate health impacts of economic cuts were documented last month in The Lancet (doi.org/k4c), revealing that suicides in Europe have soared since the financial crash in 2008, with 1000 extra deaths in England alone by 2010. Likewise, the incidence of mental health disorders has increased in countries worst hit by debt crises, such as Greece and Spain. ...

Three things you urgently need to learn about the crisis of scale A key result of what we’ve worked on for the last year has been understanding that technological development has reduced the optimum scale of production continuously since the end of WWII, and that the way financial capital has defended itself to maintain its place in the economic system has gutted the better part of the productive community and brought on the current financial crisis. This underlying economic and historical movement points, over the medium and long term, towards two possible outomes (decomposition — that is, the simultaneous destruction of state, market and social cohesion — on the one hand, and the transition towards a P2P mode of production on the other). But having a medium and long-term perspective doesn’t free us up from fighting today’s battle. And today, in every difficulty local industry has, in every challenge faced by those faced with keeping production and jobs around, the crisis of scale appears again… and we need to learn from it.
