  • Made in the World

    http://www.wto.org/ 19.09.2011 Why is it crucial to measure trade flows in value-added terms in the 21st century? Today, companies divide their operations across the world, from the design of the product and manufacturing of components to assembly and marketing, creating international production chains. More and more products are "Made in the World" rather than "Made in the UK" or "Made in France". The statistical bias created by attributing the full commercial value to the last country of origin can pervert the political debate on the origin of the imbalances and lead to misguided, and hence counter-productive, decisions. The challenge is to find the right statistical bridges between the different statistical frameworks and national accounting systems to ensure that international inter...

What is WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION? What does WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION mean? WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION meaning - WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION definition - WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The World Trade Organization (WTO) is an intergovernmental organization which regulates international trade. The WTO officially commenced on 1 January 1995 under the Marrakesh Agreement, signed by 123 nations on 15 April 1994, replacing the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), which commenced in 1948. The WTO deals with regulation of trade between participating countries by providing a framework for negotiating trade agreements and a dispute resolution process aimed at enforcing participants' adherence to WTO agreements, which are signed by representatives of member governments:fol.9–10 and ratified by their parliaments. Most of the issues that the WTO focuses on derive from previous trade negotiations, especially from the Uruguay Round (19861994). The WTO is attempting to complete negotiations on the Doha Development Round, which was launched in 2001 with an explicit focus on developing countries. As of June 2012, the future of the Doha Round remained uncertain: the work programme lists 21 subjects in which the original deadline of 1 January 2005 was missed, and the round is still incomplete. The conflict between free trade on industrial goods and services but retention of protectionism on farm subsidies to domestic agricultural sector (requested by developed countries) and the substantiation of fair trade on agricultural products (requested by developing countries) remain the major obstacles. This impasse has made it impossible to launch new WTO negotiations beyond the Doha Development Round. As a result, there have been an increasing number of bilateral free trade agreements between governments. As of July 2012, there were various negotiation groups in the WTO system for the current agricultural trade negotiation which is in the condition of stalemate. The WTO's current Director-General is Roberto Azevedo, who leads a staff of over 600 people in Geneva, Switzerland. A trade facilitation agreement known as the Bali Package was reached by all members on 7 December 2013, the first comprehensive agreement in the organization's history.

The construction of the World Trade Center was conceived as an urban renewal project, spearheaded by David Rockefeller, to help revitalize Lower Manhattan. The project was developed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which hired architect Minoru Yamasaki who came up with the specific idea for twin towers. After extensive negotiations, the New Jersey and New York State governments, which oversee the Port Authority, agreed to support the World Trade Center project at the Radio Row site on the lower-west side of Manhattan. To make the agreement acceptable to New Jersey, the Port Authority agreed to take over the bankrupt Hudson & Manhattan Railroad (renamed as PATH), which brought commuters from New Jersey to the Lower Manhattan site. The towers were designed as framed tube structures, which provided tenants with open floor plans, uninterrupted by columns or walls. This was accomplished using numerous closely spaced perimeter columns to provide much of the strength to the structure, along with gravity load shared with the core columns. The elevator system, which made use of sky lobbies and a system of express and local elevators, allowed substantial floor space to be freed up for use as office space by making the structural core smaller. The design and construction of the World Trade Center twin towers involved many other innovative techniques, such as the slurry wall for digging the foundation, and wind tunnel experiments. Construction of the World Trade Center's North Tower began in August 1968, and the South Tower in 1969. Extensive use of prefabricated components helped to speed up the construction process. The first tenants moved into the North Tower in December 1970 and into the South Tower in January 1972. Four other low-level buildings were constructed as part of the World Trade Center in the 1970s, and a seventh building was constructed in the mid-1980s.

The World Trade Report 2017 examines how technology and trade – two of the most powerful drivers of global economic progress – affect employment and wages. It looks in particular into the part played by technology and trade in the shift of employment from manufacturing to services, in the decreasing proportion of middle-skilled jobs, and in the growing value placed on skills within the jobs market. It also analyses the challenges for workers and firms in adjusting to changes in labour markets and how governments can facilitate such adjustment to ensure that trade and technology are inclusive. Panel discussion: Pankaj Ghemawat, Anselmo Rubiralta Professor of Global Strategy, IESE Business School and Global Professor of Management and Strategy and Director, Center for the Globalization of Education and Management, Stern School of Business, New York University Robert Koopman, Chief Economist and Director, Economic Research and Statistics Division, WTO Anne Krueger, Senior Research Professor, Johns Hopkins University SAIS Professor Dennis Snower, President, Kiel Institute for the World Economy Moderator: Roberto Azevêdo, Director-General, World Trade Organization Learn more at wto.org

http://stj911.org/members/index.html About Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice (Scholars) is a non-partisan organization consisting of independent researchers and activists engaged in uncovering the true nature of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Scholars emphasizes a scholarly and civil approach to inquiry. While researchers affiliated with universities comprise a portion of the group, membership is not limited to individuals with academic affiliations. We welcome all who are interested in helping to achieve a full understanding of the events of that tragic day. Scholars was founded in 2006 following a successful series of conferences and events examining the attack of September 11, 2001 using the scientific method and stressing the analysis based on large bodies of evidence -- particularly relating to the destruction of the World Trade Center. Scholars and its website are currently governed by an ad hoc committee, which formed following a general consensus reached among the membership of the original Scholars for 9/11 Truth regarding governance, website content, and civility. In the near future, an election will be held to select a steering committee. Administrative positions will last for one year. Who We Are Scholars is a group of independent investigators working towards exposing the truth behind the 9/11/2001 attacks. Currently, our membership is comprised of more than 600 individuals, from around the world, including scientists, engineers, architects, psychologists, emergency workers, and educators. http://stj911.org http://INFOWARS.COM http://WEARECHANGE.ORG http://PRISONPLANET.COM

Walking tour around Downtown Manhattan - known to be the financial district of New York. It has also been known to be the location of the World Trade Center. To commemorate the unforgettable 9/11, the place was converted to National September 11 Memorial & Museum or 9/11 Memorial. The location of the Twin Towers, where it once stood, was converted into pools or waterfalls. Just a few blocks walk will lead to the financial capital of the country - Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. ►►►Support me on Patreon◄◄◄ If you enjoy watching my videos and want to support my future projects, please visit my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/windwalktravelvideos Let's Connect: ►Subscribe: https://goo.gl/sS5fQZ ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/WindWalkTravelVideos ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/WindWalkTravelVideos ►Twitter: https://twitter.com/WindWalkTravels ►Instagram: https://instagram.com/WindWalkTravelVideos ►Reddit: https://reddit.com/r/WindWalkTravelVideos ►Tumblr: https://windwalktravelvideos.tumblr.com #WorldTradeCenter #OneWorldTradeCenter #Oculus #DowntownManhattan #WallStreet #NewYorkStockExchange #911Memorial #NewYorkCity #NewYork #BigApple #FreedomTower #OneWorldObservatory
