P 7440 中国沿岸部は労働力不足

NYTimes, 2010.11.29

Two of China’s main export manufacturing areas are suffering from an acute shortage of migrant workers, giving laborers more leverage over wages and curtailing the expansion plans of some companies, according to a report published Monday in China Daily, an official English-language newspaper.

The shortfall of workers is especially severe in the service and manufacturing industries. The regions most affected are the Pearl River Delta, which is in the southern boom province of Guangdong, and in the Yangtze River Delta, near Shanghai. The Pearl River Delta could be short by as many as 900,000 workers, China Daily reported, citing a recent survey by the human resources department of Guangdong.

P 7439 スウェーデン経済は好調

The Local, 2010.11.29

Sweden's economy easily beat expectations to post record growth in the third quarter, driven by strong domestic demand, as the government warned against over-confidence.

Sweden, which emerged from recession in the second quarter of 2009 and saw growth quickly pick up in the first quarter of 2010, now has one of Europe's strongest growth rates.

Like Reinfeldt, Finance Minister Anders Borg, who has been largely credited with the Scandinavian country's dramatic turn-around, also cautioned Monday against allowing the strong growth figures to lead to "hubris."

"We must remember that when countries explode, as we have seen in Iceland and Ireland, this has usually been preceded by extreme confidence. Things have looked good and one has been afflicted by hubris. But we will not let that happen to us," he told reporters in Stockholm.

"It is extremely important that we keep our public finances in order," he added.

P 7438 メキシコでの国連温暖化防止会議

France24, 2010.11.29

Some 15,000 delegates gather at the Mexican resort of Cancun on Monday for an annual UN conference on climate change. Scientists say emissions should be cut 25-40 percent below 1990 levels by 2020 to prevent a dangerous rise in global temperatures.

The disruption may already have begun.

Researchers point to this summer’s historic heat wave in Russia and nationwide floods in Pakistan as portents of things to come. In the Arctic Ocean, the summer melt of the ice cap has reached unprecedented proportions in recent years, and studies suggest the summer ocean may be ice-free as early as this decade.

Here in Mexico, research points to a drying out and shrinking of farm output in some regions, which might lead to a greater exodus of Mexican migrants to the U.S.

P 7437 ギリシャとの別れ

英語オンラインAljazeeraのギリシャ支局が閉鎖された。

2010.11.29

It's not an easy time to leave Greece. Firstly, as a journalist because "the story" has not yet run its course.

The economic pain is bound to deepen over the coming months, and it's difficult to predict whether Greece will pull through, or whether it will eventually have to default on its enormous debts, with uncertain consequences for Europe and beyond in this febrile economic climate.

And, secondly, as a friend of Greece, it's a bad time to say goodbye, for the simple reason that the country is now an unhappy place.

Old people are anxious, young people want out. There's a widespread perception that things are going to get worse. I hope that perception is wrong, and I can come back in happier times.

P 7436 池田信夫のイタリア論

2010.11.28

「・・・しかし最大の違いは、イタリア人はそういう現状に満足しているのに、日本人は悲観しているという点だ。自殺率を比較すると、日本は10万人あたり24.4人で主要国でトップなのに比べて、イタリアは6.3人で最低。これはカトリックなので自殺の禁忌が強く、自殺を事故として申告するバイアスもあるが、なんといってもベルルスコーニ首相に代表される脳天気な国民性が大きい。・・・」

「・・・最近の実証研究によれば、日本やドイツの戦後復興は「奇蹟」ではないという。それは戦争で国土が壊滅的な打撃を受け、分母が小さくなったために戦前と同じレベルに復旧するのが「高度成長」に見えただけで、70年代以降の両国の成長率は平凡なものだ。だから今の低成長が普通のペースだと思ったほうがいい。イタリア人のいい加減さを見習って、貧しくても楽しく暮らす習慣を身につけるのが、日本人の最大の課題だろう。・・」
