    Gates urges China to avoid Japan's errors in innovation

    South China Morning Post
    China should learn from Japan and the US when it comes to state-led artificial intelligence research, Microsoft founder Bill Gates says. Gates was commenting on the "China Brain" project put forward by Baidu chief Li Yanhong, who suggested that Beijing should help make China a world leader in artifical intelligence by adopting a market-based mechanism for innovation. Gates says that care is needed in how you structure the government's relationship with innovation. In Japan, the Ministry of International Trade picked specific goals and approaches for a computer initiative in the 1980s. But the project was not successful and the architecture was surpassed in speed by hardware made by Intel.

    China's magic number - 23 - makes or breaks flotations

    Bloomberg
    It’s the magic number in China, a figure that conjures up public companies and private fortunes. The number is 23 - and it’s one of the most powerful forces in China’s $6.4 trillion equity market today. As the Shanghai benchmark index posts the world’s biggest rally, 23 has become a ceiling for firms trying to tap into it. Even though market valuations have climbed, virtually no companies have gone public at prices of more than 23 times their earnings per share. That’s no coincidence, bankers say. Chinese authorities have quietly quashed attempts to take businesses public at richer prices. By hewing to the multiple 23, regulators are handing investors an almost guaranteed profit when new shares start trading. Companies, on the other hand, get shortchanged with smaller cash infusions than investors are ready to commit.

    ABN Amro IPO hoves into view after pay disputes

    Reuters
    The Dutch government will reconsider selling off ABN Amro, Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem said, after senior managers agreed to give up a controversial pay rise that had stalled progress on the bank's proposed share listing. In the face of a widespread public outcry, the managers said they would give up raises of EUR 100,000 euros ($110,000) each, which had been approved by the supervisory board for six members of the managing board, all but chief executive Gerrit Zalm. Dijsselbloem said on Friday he would delay privatisation until questions over the increase were resolved. Thousands of bank employees lost their jobs after the bank's 2008 nationalisation, which cost taxpayers billions of euros. Last year the union representing workers at the bank agreed to a two-year freeze on salaries.

    New Zealand smashes Australia, except at cricket

    Business Spectator
    A year of outperformance in New Zealand culminated in annual GDP growth of 3.5% in the December quarter versus just 2.5% in Australia. The divergence in growth in the antipodean economies that has lifted the kiwi dollar close to parity with the Aussie for the first time. The key difference is in confidence. Business confidence in New Zealand is high, and fostered solid investment in both capital and employment. As unemployment has fallen, consumer sentiment has risen. By contrast, no amount of RBA easing has been able to convince Australian businesses to take advantage of the lowest borrowing costs on record and invest in growth.
