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

If you were mailing an extremely important package, you'd probably trust FedEx more than the U.S. Postal Service. But why?

For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: If you had something really important to mail, would you head to the Post Office, which is run by the government and considered part of the public sector, or would you go to a place like UPS or FedEx, which are private businesses. Politicians in the media often talk about the private and public sectors of our economy but what's the difference? And which one is more effective? The private sector is made up of businesses or corporations owned by people. The private sector includes malls, grocery stores, and your local diner. To make a profit in the private sector, businesses must earn our money by offering us products and services that we want or need. When businesses have to compete for the same dollars, prices go down because no one wants to pay twice as much for shoes at one store if you can get the same pair cheaper at another place. On the other hand, the public sector is not supported by profits. It doesn't have to compete for our dollars. Instead, the public sector uses our tax dollars to fund its services. So we pay for these programs no matter how much or how little we use them. The government decides how our tax dollars should be spent in the public sector. This makes sense for some things. For example, you probably wouldn't want firefighters or police officers competing with one another for your business. In other cases though, this means things cost more or service is worse. The U.S. Post Office has $100 billion in debt and is regularly bailed out with taxpayer money. And the Department of Motor Vehicles isn't usually known for fast, friendly service. In contrast, private companies know that if they offer poor customer service and don't make money, they'll go out of business. When comparing the private sector with the public sector, it's clear that the market-driven private sector is more efficient. When you don't have to be profitable or accountable, things tend to be more expensive and the service is worse. So when there's a choice between a private sector or a government service, think about that package you really need delivered.

The time is now for increased investment to rebuild aging bridges and tunnels and to fund new projects, from renewable energy to smart cities technology. Communities, developers, and government leaders alike are searching for methods to increase private investment while making public sector funding more effective. As lawmakers draft bills, investors are also looking for ways to connect bankable projects with capital. Can the government come together for a bipartisan solution?

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.

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?

Why are some countries rich and some countries poor? Is it access to natural resources? Is it tax policy? A motivated work force? These are important, but not determinative. The answer is deceptively simple – it’s what’s in our heads: knowledge. Thus, the surest way to promote economic growth is to cultivate an environment that encourages the spread of knowledge. Such an environment requires freedom, which is why the freest societies are the most prosperous. In five minutes, economist George Gilder explains why.

Almost everyone would answer: Money. Or having a lot of natural resources. But the real answer is . . . knowledge. It's easy to prove. What is the difference between us and a cave man? The only difference is that we know a lot more. Biologically we're the same. The neurons in our brains are the same. The physical world is the same. But our lives are infinitely better. Why? Because of knowledge. You don't have to go back to the cave man to prove this point. You could go back fifty years. New knowledge , say the discovery of penicillin or new algorithms that leads to a better search engines -- always comes as a surprise. We call these surprises innovation because they are inherently unpredictable. New products burst on the scene seemingly out of nowhere. Suddenly, there's electric light or an automobile or an iPhone. Now, of course, these products didn't come from nowhere; they came from the synthesis of accumulated knowledge which led to these innovations, these surprises. By definition, then, innovation can't be planned, it involves dislocation. The makers of buggy whips did not have a great future when Henry Ford introduced the first Model T and it always points to the future. Innovation -- new knowledge -- leads to not only new products but new companies, and whole new industries. And innovation creates wealth; wealth that is ultimately distributed all through an economy. Here's how it works. More freedom, more knowledge, more innovation. And more innovation leads to dynamic economic growth. Less freedom, less knowledge, less innovation, -- less economic growth. So, if freedom promotes knowledge and innovation, which leads to economic growth, why don't all people and governments embrace it? To understand that we have to return to what I said earlier about innovation being a surprise, being unpredictable. This unpredictability makes many people uncomfortable. Their goal is to eliminate surprise. One finds this is in all utopian visions from communism to socialism to the belief that through complex insurance packages bankers could protect themselves from a catastrophic mortgage meltdown. In Europe with its failing welfare states and more and more in the U.S., we see this desire to eliminate surprise in the ever expanding role played by government, bigger bureaucracies, more rules, more regulations. Every new crisis, real or imagined, brings ever more laws. A corrupt energy conglomerate, Enron, implodes in 2001. A year later the Sarbanes-Oxley Act is passed, adding thousands of new pages of regulations to the federal registry. In 2011, the 2,300-page Dodd-Frank Act is written in response to the 2008 financial crises. It has since grown to more than 8,000 pages.

http://www.pwc.nl/nl/private-equity.html A Private Equity firm is an organisation run by a group of professionals who are specialised in managing capital: the capital of pension funds, insurers, banks, family offices and private individuals with assets.Within PwC Europe, we have a Private Equity (PE) team that consists of colleagues from all line of services to help our clients, the PE houses, solving complex business issues at the fund level, the deal level and at the portfolio level. Establishing the PE Group as a part of PwC Europe allows us to share our resources, capacities and most importantly our expertise, market knowledge and networks. PE houses often do not limit their opportunities by operating within only one country – they look for investment ideas across borders. Our business needs to follow suit by offering services that can match this pace and ideally even exceed our clients’ expectations. By engaging with our European colleagues we can handle more complex transactions with experts from all involved jurisdictions. Although PE is a separate markets industry it does touch all sorts of clients in many different industries, meaning yours as well…... so help us to help you!

In partnership with the Danish Embassy in the United States, the Project on Prosperity and Development will be publishing a report entitled Blended Finance and Aligning Private Investment with Global Development. Over the past few decades, the composition of development finance has flipped from being primarily funded through public-sector resources to intensified interest and investment from the private sector. Blended finance is one method to unlock private capital for development, referring to structuring global development investment deals with a mixed portfolio of public and private funds to spread and smooth risk-reward profiles, “crowd in” catalytic private investment in sustainable financing, and create markets in developing and new contexts.

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.

State and local governments all around the country have failed to set aside enough money to pay for the pensions they have promised to workers in the public sector. They’re also making unrealistic assumptions about their future investment returns, further risking their budgets and the ability to pay for promised pension benefits.
