Why Private Investment Works & Govt. Investment Doesn't
From transportation to energy, and everything in between, should the government invest money in as many promising projects as possible? Or would that actually doom many of those ventures to failure? Burt Folsom, historian and professor at Hillsdale College, answers those questions by drawing on the fascinating history of the race to build America's railroads and airplanes.

A company going bankrupt is not news. But Solyndra was not just any company. Its biggest “investor” was the federal government which had given it $500 million dollars. That was news. But, really, it shouldn’t have been. If history is any guide, it was quite predictable. The government is a very poor investor. And always has been. There are countless examples, but two should serve our purpose here. After the Civil War, American leaders were anxious to bind the country’s North, South, East, and West regions together with transcontinental railroads. Congress therefore gave massive federal aid to build the Union Pacific, the Central Pacific, and later the Northern Pacific Railroads. But all three of these roads had huge financial problems. The Union Pacific, for example, was mired in financial scandal from its inception, went bankrupt several times, and had to rebuild large sections of track thanks to shoddy construction practices. At that same time, James J. Hill, with no federal aid whatsoever, built a railroad from St. Paul to Seattle -- the Great Northern. How was Hill able to do with private funds what the Union Pacific failed to do with a gift of tens of millions of federal dollars? The starting point is incentives. The Union Pacific was paid by the government for each mile of road it built. It was in the railroad’s interest not to build the road straight. The more miles it took the UP to cross Nebraska, for example, the more money it made. Hill, by contrast, used his own capital. To make a profit, he had to build his Great Northern Railroad sturdy and straight. Hill’s company remained in business for almost a hundred years until 1970 when it merged with other railroads. The original Union Pacific, riddled with corruption and numerous other financial misdeeds, including the wholesale bribery of public officials, went broke within ten years. The story of the airplane is even more stark. By the opening of the twentieth century, the major nations of Europe and America were frantically at work trying to invent a flying machine. The first nation to do so would have a huge military and commercial advantage. In fact, leading American politicians of the day, such as Teddy Roosevelt, President William McKinley, and others argued that building an airplane was a national emergency. There was no time, they argued, to wait for private industry to get the job done. The government needed to pick the best aeronautics expert and give him the money he needed. That expert was Samuel Langley, the president of the prestigious Smithsonian Institution and holder of honorary degrees from Harvard, Yale, Oxford, and Cambridge. Langley was already an accomplished inventor and he had written a highly praised book Experiments in Aerodynamics. Federal officials gave Langley funds for two trial flights. He immediately set to work. His theory was that his plane needed to be thrust into the air from a houseboat on the Potomac River. The big engine on the plane would then propel it through air for several minutes. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/why-private-investment-works-govt-investment-doesnt

Private Equity: South America - Octavio Lopes, GP Investments
Brazil is a big country that is getting bigger -- its middle class grew by about 20 million from 2002 through 2008. GP Investments, the country's largest private equity firm, hopes to grow in tandem. The firm believes the problems of Brazil's past -- hyperinflation and political turmoil -- have been tamed. A stable democracy has been in place for about 20 years, inflation is way down, interest rates are relatively low and government debt levels are relatively healthy. GP Investments believes the formula is right for Brazil to combine the growth rate of an emerging market with the stability of a more developed country.

Private Investment in the Developing World - Investigating International Finance - Episode 4
This final episode in our Investigating International Finance series explores the controversial ways in which global finance interacts with the developing world. Western financial firms can buy, restructure, and then sell off companies, often leaving them saddled with debt. We also look at 'land grabbing', the widespread selling and leasing of land in Africa to corporations, which can result in governments evicting local people from their land. This is the fourth in a series of four videos investigating different areas of the international finance system. Each is a short introduction to a major challenge we face if we want to reform global finance and make it work for people and the planet. _______________________________ Operational in Uganda since 2005, the New Forest Company operates three pine and eucalyptus plantations - in the Mubende, Kiboga and Bugiri districts respectively. In December 2011, four affected community representatives, Oxfam International, Oxfam Great Britain, and the Uganda Land Alliance (a national consortium of organizations advocating on land issues) submitted a complaint to the Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) on behalf of people living around the plantation in Mubende. The complainants raise concerns about forced evictions and displacement in the plantation area. They contend that the evictions have negatively impacted their communities by displacing them from land, destroying their private property, and forcing them to forgo health, education, and livelihood opportunities.The complaint also voices broader concerns about the due diligence surrounding the project. The CAO's final Assessment Report, along with International Finance Corporation's formal response, can be found here: http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/cases/case_detail.aspx?id=181 The case is still on-going.

What Is A Private Placement?
A private placement is the sale of securities to a small group of select investors as a way of raising capital while avoiding key disclosure requirements. The target investor audience for private placement deals are accredited investors who earn at least $200,000 annually or whose net worth exceeds $1 million and institutional buyers like large banks, mutual funds, insurance companies, and pension funds. Both public and private companies can either sell equity shares or bonds through the private placement while taking advantage of some key benefits; - The company does not have to pay high underwriting fees - The business is dealing with sophisticated investors that can help structure a more complex deal - The company does not have to disclose as much about its business to the SEC compared to an IPO - For privately placed bonds, no credit rating is required thus saving the company time and money There are many questions that will be answered in this video; - What are private placements? - How can public companies use private placements? - How can private companies use private placements? - What advantages do investors receive when investing in private placements? - What is Rule 144A? - What are the filing and holding requirements for privately placed securities in Canada & US?

SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, former presidential candidate and opposition leader: "Because of this, we have become the world's largest exporter of manual labour, the world's largest expeller of people to other countries." 15. Wide of Obrador on stage STORYLINE: Thousands of followers of a former leftist presidential candidate vowed on Sunday to close highways, airports and government buildings across Mexico, if the legislature opens the country's state oil industry to private investment. Chanting: "The country should be defended, not sold," the demonstrators raised their hands and bellowed "Yes!" when asked if they would participate in blockades and a possible general strike against reforms to open the industry. "The neo-liberal governments, instead of turning Mexico into a powerful energy-supplying nation, have stopped investing in exploration, in refining, in technological research, and our country has become an exporter of crude oil and an importer of finished goods," former presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador told a crowd of thousands. He accused foreign governments of ignoring Mexico's interests. Obrador also said that the privatisation of other industries had led to a stagnation of the economy. "Because of this, we have become the world's largest exporter of manual labour, the world's largest expeller of people to other countries," he argued. Any government proposal for strategic alliances or investment in state-owned Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex, would be considered privatisation and trigger massive protests, he said. No such proposal has yet been submitted, but the administration of conservative President Felipe Calderon has suggested legal reforms are needed, because private capital and technical expertise could help Mexico explore deep-water oil fields and reverse the current decline in production. But according to Lopez Obrador, it is a lie that Mexico lacked the money or technology to modernise its oil industry. He argued that Mexican experts were capable of exploring deep waters in the Gulf of Mexico, where more oil is thought to lie, without foreign or private assistance. Lopez Obrador blamed fraud for his narrow loss to Calderon in Mexico's July 2006 presidential elections and has refused to recognise Calderon's government. He suggested cutting government waste to give Pemex more money for exploration. Mexico's Constitution bans most private and foreign involvement in the industry, although Pemex subcontracts some work to private firms. Mexico nationalised its oil industry on 18 March 1938, and the 70th anniversary of that event, to be marked this year, may become a flashpoint for protests.

Harnessing private investment capital to accelerate and expand land conservation
Over the past century, the public sector was the predominant funder of land conservation projects, creating national parks, national forests and wildlife refuges in countries around the world. More recently, inventive conservation finance practitioners have discovered myriad ways to bring private capital to the effort – for example, funding for-profit mitigation banks and providing impact capital to fund the acquisition and stewardship of working forests and farmlands. The webinar explores several of these private and civic funding methods in depth.

Attracting Private Investment in Bangladesh: Challenges for the year 2017
Dr. Selim Raihan, Professor of Economics at Dhaka University and the Executive Director of SANEM has pointed out three major challenges with respect to attracting more Private Investment in Bangladesh. 1. Infrastructural issue: Quality of electricity is the main concern rather than the price of it. Investors may also be willing to pay a bit high price if they get uninterrupted and quality electricity supply.Other than this, Bangladesh will have to focus on reducing the cost of doing business in the coming years. 2. Institutional Efficiency: Investment flow in the coming years will highly depend on how the country will be able to enforce the contracts, settle property rights issue (especially related to land), control corruption and improve the bureaucratic quality. 3. Political stability: Political scenario has remained, in general, stable over the past two years and political uncertainties have reduced. It is expected that, the situation will improve further which will in turn help improve the business confidence thus attracting both domestic and foreign investments. Other than these, proper implementation of proposed special economic zones (SEZs) will be a big step towards attracting private investment both from home and abroad.

Sophie de Caen (UNDP): Private investment in Haiti needed both internally and externally
Sophie de Caen, the United Nations Development Programme’s senior country director for Haiti, is looking forward. For two years after the earthquake that devastated Haiti in 2010, long-term development planning took a back seat to recovery, reconstruction and relief. Now, the fragile island nation is looking ahead to presidential elections next year, a plan to achieve emerging market status by 2030, and a post-2015 development agenda that can link Haiti’s development efforts with a global movement’s momentum and visibility. We spoke with de Caen in our Washington DC studio to learn how the country, with UNDP’s support, is grappling with the challenge of long term planning when the aftereffects of natural disaster - and the specter of others to come - still loom so large in conversations about Haiti’s future. Here is an excerpt from our conversation with de Caen.

The Narendra Modi government is also in talks with Washington, Tokyo, Abu Dhabi and Riyadh to join hands for third country projects in Maldives, where in the past five years, China has made huge inroads. While the USA has shown interest to assist Maldives to handle its debt crisis, Japan, which opened an embassy in Male two years back, can partner India in the backdrop of their partnership to ensure free & open Indo-Pacific region. UAE & Saudi Arabia, two rich nations with warm ties with Maldives and India, are also considering partnering for projects in civilian sectors in the archipelago. While India and the UAE have decided to undertake projects in third countries beginning with Africa, Riyadh and Delhi may also join hands for third country projects given the growing warmth in bilateral partnership. India and Maldives are hoping to conclude a bilateral investment treaty allowing private investments from here to the neighbouring country. Delhi will extend support to Solih for infrastructure development in far flung islands of Maldives as Solih eyes reducing dependence on China, indicated one of the persons quoted above.
