As we all know, this year’s financial and political events are already moving quickly. I started 2016 by shifting my online news source from The New York Times to The Wall Street Journal, trying to learn about the world through a difference lens and gain a new perspective on business, politics and money.
Politics are omnipresent this year, from the surprisingly intolerant Left (where free speech isn’t always free) to the ever-righteous Right (where liberal values are seldom welcome).
For many years, there has been no lack of alternative means of transport with which to travel through the city faster than by car, while at the same time doing your bit to relieve traffic congestion and protect the environment. But something vital was still lacking for the next chapter in the success story of intermodality to be opened: a convenient way to plan and book those trips from the first to the last mile with just one click.
Imagine a world where driverless cars rule the road, navigating their way across an integrated network of connected cities, while sharing data with infrastructure in real time.
Truly “smart cities,” in which transportation systems all communicate with each other (think cars with traffic signals, for example), may seem far off, but futurists and economists alike say it will happen sooner than you think.
In fact, autonomous technology already exists, and its proliferation will have profound implications on the built environment.
Industry is “poised for rapid growth,” especially in emerging markets
January 29, 2016 /3BL Media/ - To reach the level of investment in new renewable power generation needed to avert dangerous climate change, $12.1 trillion of investment will be needed over the next 25 years, which is $5.2 trillion above business-as-usual projections, a new report by Ceres and Bloomberg New Energy Finance concludes.
OSLO, NORWAY, January 26, 2016 /3BL Media/ - From all corners of the world, business leaders echo the same message: societal risks need urgent action. However, some of the most pressing risks – such as youth unemployment and the global food crisis – are also where leaders see the greatest business opportunities. Business also increasingly sees itself as a key global activist and is calling on governments to increase political will to address world risks.
WASHINGTON, October 26, 2015 /3BL Media/ – Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT) today reiterated its commitment to Indonesia at the US-Indonesia Investment Summit.
