Analysis: Asia's economic history foretells Chinese slowdown

(Reuters) - The past is not an infallible guide to the future, but a reading of how East Asia's economies developed suggests China needs to get ready for an appreciable slowdown in growth in the years ahead.

And that same history lesson must have Beijing praying that it can follow in the footsteps of vibrant South Korea, not stagnant Japan.

Last weekend's gathering of the Group of 20 major economies was aimed at securing short-term growth and currency stability.

But the opulence of the lake resort where G20 finance ministers met was a vivid illustration of how South Korea has avoided the so-called middle-income trap and continued to push living standards closer to those of advanced countries.

For decades, many countries in Latin America and the Middle East have failed in this task. In Asia, the Philippines is a prominent example.

"Many countries make it from low-income to middle-income, but very few actually make that second leap to high-income. They seem to get stuck in a trap where your costs are escalating and you lose competitiveness," said Ardo Hansson, a World Bank economist in Beijing.

Not so South Korea. When war on the divided peninsula ended in 1953, the south was poorer than the north.

By 1997, though, South Korean per capita GDP (at purchasing power parity exchange rates) had reached 57 percent of the average of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, a forum of industrial democracies that Seoul joined a year earlier.

The 1997/98 Asian financial meltdown set back many middle-income countries across the region. Investment, vital to sustain medium-term growth, has still not recovered to pre-crisis levels in Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

South Korea, though, after nearly defaulting on its debts at the end of 1997, pulled itself together and resumed its march up the value chain.


The key reason is that Seoul embarked on far-reaching market reforms. In particular, the government reduced the power of the chaebol, sprawling debt-heavy conglomerates whose links to the state created the impression that they were too big to fail.

But many did fail as South Korea injected more competition into the economy, liberalized imports and deregulated the financial sector that was a captive source of funding for the chaebol.

"They really changed the rules of the game for the large corporations. It became clear that being big and being close to government was not enough to keep you alive," said Randall Jones, who heads the OECD's South Korea desk.

Since the crisis, the country has grown more than twice as fast as the OECD norm, propelling per capita GDP to 83 percent of the group average by 2008.

FBI busted tracking student, demands GPS spy gear return

updated 1 hour 56 minutes ago 2010-10-08T22:36:11
Share Print Font: +-Several days ago a 20-year-old student discovered a GPS tracking device hidden on his car. After his friend posted a picture of it online, speculating about its ties to a secret FBI investigation, the feds themselves came a-knockin', according to They wanted their toy back.

Based on the discussion with the six FBI agents who arrived at his doorstep, Yassir Afifi believes he'd been under surveillance for three to six months. When Wired asked an FBI spokesman about the case, he did not acknowledge ownership of the device, but said that there was an "ongoing investigation."

Afifi says that he cooperated with the FBI and, according to Wired, "did nothing to merit attention from authorities." He is a U.S. citizen who lives in Santa Clara, Calif., where he attends Mission College.

Afifi's father, an Islamic-American activist, died a year ago in Egypt. It is not clear what the circumstances of his death were, or if this was the reason for the FBI's investigation of Afifi.

The gadget itself — a GPS receiver identified as a police-issue-only Cobham Orion Guardian ST820 tracking system, connected to a battery pack and radio transmitter — was magnetically attached to the car. A shot of it made its way around the blogosphere on Monday, after appearing on the community news site Reddit. After Afifi spotted an antenna sticking out during an oil change, the garage owner offered to yank it out. It apparently popped off quite easily.

The question of whether or not sticking a GPS on a car is legal is actually in the middle of a hot debate right now. One federal court recently said that it was legal, while another said that tracking for an "extended period of time" would in fact require a warrant. (For more on this, here's a great piece in Time written by lawyer and tech journalist Adam Cohen.)

Legality aside, the tactic itself might have been carried out with something less than precision. Simply put, tracking devices shouldn't be so easy to find. Wired talked to an agent who said that not only is the tracking device out of date, but state-of-the-art snoops hardwire the stuff directly to the car's electrical system, avoiding the need for a battery.

What's impressive is how quickly Afifi got an identification of the gadget by crowdsourcing it on the Web. On the flipside, that kind of exposure isn't good PR for the FBI. Surely the revelation of the magnetic tracker will cause many people to check under their own cars. Like many noble efforts to keep us safe from terrorism, this one may be turning out to not be so effective. After all, those who already know they're involved in illegal activity probably check their cars every day, rain or shine.

Analysis: Rebound in M&A won't help U.S. lower unemployment

(Reuters) - Corporate America has opened its wallet again, with companies launching a wave of takeovers in recent weeks, but the surge in spending may be bad news for the economy as it signals more job cuts ahead.

Two trends have held back the U.S. economy's recovery from the longest recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s this year: With unemployment holding high at 9.6 percent, consumers have been unable to spend as they once did, and big companies, while flush with cash, were afraid to part with it.

Their recent wave of deal-making -- including General Electric Co's (GE.N) $3 billion buy of privately held Dresser Inc, France's Sanofi-Aventis (SASY.PA)' hostile bid for U.S. biotech company Genzyme Corp (GENZ.O) and the merger of two top U.S. airlines into a new entity called United Continental Holdings Inc (UAL.N) -- shows they are ready to spend again.

But that will do nothing to lower unemployment.

Review: A better Apple TV doesn't beat competition

Peter Svensson, AP Technology Writer, On Wednesday October 6, 2010, 4:56 pm EDT
NEW YORK (AP) -- Apple is a pioneer in many fields, but in the race to connect our TV sets to the Internet, it's been lagging badly.

Three years ago, the company put out a small box called the Apple TV that brought iTunes movies to the TV set, but it was too cumbersome and expensive to be a success. Now, there's a new, revamped and cheaper Apple TV, costing $99. It mainly represents Apple Inc. catching up to what competitors have been doing in the intervening years. However, with Apple being Apple, it also has some nifty features that set it apart.

So what is the Apple TV? Every time I write about it, I feel compelled to point out that despite the name, it's not a TV set. It's a black box that comes with a small remote. You connect it to your TV set either directly or through a receiver. It shows a computer-like interface on the TV screen, which you navigate using the remote's buttons.

To connect the Apple TV to the Internet, you enter the password for your Wi-Fi hotspot, or connect the box to your router with an Ethernet cable. Once online, you can start renting TV shows and movies from Apple. You can also watch Internet movies from Netflix, if you have an account.

In setup and operation, the new Apple TV is simpler than the old, which was more like a small computer, with a hard drive of its own. It was designed to download shows from iTunes or your computer, then play them back. By contrast, the new one has no hard drive, which makes it smaller and cheaper, and it is designed to play video as it "streams" from the Internet rather than storing them. That means you don't have to worry about the hard drive filling up, either.

So far, so good. But my main problem with the Apple TV business model is still very much a problem. When you rent a movie -- usually for $4.99 if it's in high definition -- and hit the "Play" button, you have 24 hours to watch it. If you can't finish it in one evening, you're going to have to cough up another $4.99 to finish it. Watching a movie in one sitting is a distant memory from my pre-parenthood days, so this model simply doesn't work for me, and I'm sure I'm not alone.

There's nothing about the Apple TV itself that dictates a 24-hour movie lifespan. It's all Hollywood's fault. The only progress on this issue in the last three years is that we now have 48 hours to watch rented TV shows. So we have twice as long to watch shows that are a quarter of the length of full movies. Thank you, thank you, dear studios.

The Apple TV, does, however, offer a cheaper way to watch movies. If you pay at least $9 per month for a Netflix subscription, you can watch as much as you want of Netflix Inc.'s streaming movies through the Apple TV. The image quality isn't quite as good as the rentals, the movies aren't as fresh and there's no surround sound, but this is good value for money.

Streaming Netflix movies on the TV is old hat, though. Two years ago, a small company called Roku brought out a small box very reminiscent of today's Apple TV. It cost just $100 and did a good job. Since then, Netflix service has been extended to game consoles and DVD players. Some TV sets can even play Netflix movies by themselves, with no accessories of any kind.

I took a look at the Roku HD, an updated model of the original box. It costs $70 and plays Netflix just as well as the Apple TV, though it's a bit bigger and the interface is not as polished. For $100, you can get version that can connect to older TV sets that don't take digital inputs; Apple TV can't do that.

The Roku boxes don't play Apple or iTunes content, but can play rented and purchased movies and TV shows from Inc., under similar terms. It also offers baseball from and streams from less-known providers. In the next few months, it's also adding Hulu Plus, which provides ABC, Fox and NBC shows for $10 per month.

So why get an Apple TV instead? Well, it does play well with other Apple products. If you have a computer running iTunes at home, the Apple TV can reach into it to play movies and music from your hard drive, including purchases from the iTunes Store that you wouldn't be able to buy and store with just the Apple TV. Instead of the tiny and eminently losable remote, you can control the Apple TV from the touch screen of an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.

Apple promises an even cooler feature in November, called AirPlay. A software update will let Apple's handheld gadgets stream photos, audio and video to the TV through the Apple TV, using Wi-Fi. That will be an easy way to get movies and photos you've shot yourself on to the big screen.

Like the Roku boxes, the Apple TV has the potential to save a lot of money for people who like watching movies and a few TV shows, but don't care much about news or sports and can put up with the 24-hour limit on rentals. If you're in that category, you can get rid of cable or satellite service in favor of a TV antenna and a Netflix subscription. Forget "100 channels and nothing on" -- you'll have 15 channels and something always on, online.

It's a fine stop-gap solution for the problem of bridging the distance between the TV and the Internet. In the longer term, standalone boxes like this will go away, and TVs will come with Internet connections as standard. It will be interesting to see if Apple has a place in that future.

What is it with these UFO reports from China?

Alan Boyle writes: What is it with these UFO reports from China? Even though sightings of unidentified flying objects were initially reported weeks or months ago, the stories just keep generating headlines — for example, this week in The Sun, a notorious British tabloid. That report apparently related to a Sept. 11 sighting that led to the diversion of airline flights to Baotou in Inner Mongolia, as reported a couple of days later by People's Daily Online. (The Sun refers to the city as "Bootee.")

A purported YouTube video of the sighting has been viewed more than 200,000 times in the past three days, even though it doesn't show much more than a few flashes on a black screen. "I believe this is called darkness, not a mysterious object," one commenter wrote.

People's Daily has been passing along quite a few UFO reports in recent months, including the one about the Hong Kong UFOs that were later ascribed to reflections in camera lenses. In July, the publication said a hovering UFO caused air-traffic disruptions at Hangzhou's Xiaoshan Airport. (People's Daily later blamed the UFO buzz on aircraft that were flying within radar "blind spots" and flashing lights that were captured on streaky photos.)

The Sun and USA Today take note of the fact that UFO reports are becoming almost routine in China. But that doesn't necessarily mean the aliens have decided to go East. It's more likely that the initial UFO reports have left folks sensitized to spotting anything strange in the skies. (After all, anything can be an unidentified flying object if you don't exactly know that it's an airplane, or an unusual atmospheric disturbance, or a missile stage re-entry.)

Sorting out the cause of a particular sighting is much harder than reporting it. As China's summer of sightings illustrates, the truth may be out there, but it's not easy to track down. That's why it's important to take a picture ... take a reading ... and take a meeting before you blame the alien conspiracy.

Here are other developments on the alien front:

• Last year, a spectacular glowing spiral in the sky sparked UFO reports in Scandinavia, but Russian officials later said the phenomenon was caused by an unsuccessful missile test. Today the Russians conducted a successful test of the same type of missile, the Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile. The Bulava was launched from a nuclear sub in the White Sea, and the test warheads successfully hit a target area on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East. Two more tests are scheduled later this year.

• Last week, some British news reports suggested that Malaysian astrophysicist Mazlan Othman was angling to become Earth's ambassador to alien civilizations, in her capacity as the head of the U.N. Office for Outer Space Affairs. Othman quickly denied that she was after such an appointment, and expanded upon that denial this week in an Associated Press interview. "I think it's cool, but no, I am not about to be appointed the ambassador to aliens," she said.

Othman told AP that she didn't know who should be in charge in the event that extraterrestrials make contact, but thinks a protocol should be put in place. "All I have been saying is that there are many forums for such discussions, and the U.N. is, of course, one of those forums that can be used. I am not saying that the U.N. must be used," she said.

AP also quotes British UFO investigator Nick Pope as saying there was no clear legal procedure in place for handling alien contact. "My view is that it will be events-led," he said.

However, as we noted earlier this week, scientists have indeed worked out protocols for dealing with alien contact — protocols that would include a role for Othman's boss, U.N. Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon. Now the hard part begins: getting people like Moon and Othman and Pope to read the fracking manual.
