    India soon to have world's largest tertiary-age population

    The Conversation
    India’s demographic trend will soon see it overtake China as the world’s most populous country. Amit Dasgupta writes that currently, over 50% of India’s population, or around 600 million people, are under 25 years. Within the next five years, India will have the largest tertiary-age population in the world. The middle class – those best able to pay for a quality education – is expected to swell to around 500 million. With GDP growth rates set to cross 8%, the demand for higher education can only grow.

    Do your homework before embarking on an options journey

    Do your homework before embarking on an options journey
    Puts, calls, strike price, in the money and out of the money ... there's plenty of jargon in the trading of options. Just as sailors make sure that everything is shipshape before they set out, smart traders do their homework first before venturing into options trading.

    Get ready for offbeat ideas amid sensible policy talk in Beijing

    South China Morning Post
    The Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference started its sessions on Thursday, while the National People’s Congress opens on Saturday. Here are some unusual ideas suggested by delegates this year: China should limit the number of Disney theme parks as they groom children to love western culture and shun their own. Boys should start school two years later that girls, because it is tough for them to compete with bright girls at a young age. Children should learn calligraphy, traditional characters and Peking Opera, to help them embrace traditional culture. And China should make the Double Ninth Festival, when families visit ancestors' graves, a public holiday that could be the Chinese version of Thanksgiving.

    Time to trim consumption and boost learning, Indonesia

    The Jakarta Globe
    Last month, tobacco company H.M. Sampoerna made its debut as part of the Indonesian benchmark index, LQ45. Only rarely is a benchmark index of a nation topped by a tobacco company. Indonesia’s middle-class has been following the model of “eat, smoke, drink and drive” for far too long. The four sectors account for 28% of the entire market capitalization of the JCI. At some point, all these sectors will feel the pinch of an economy showing subdued growth. Indonesia desperately needs a push in soft-infrastructure that pushes labour to meet global standards in training and productivity. Government expenditure in education remains inadequate, and lower than in Thailand, Vietnam and most of Latin America in GDP perentage terms.

    China targets foreign elites through scholarship push

    Business Spectator
    Beijing is keen to build its soft power through scholarship programs. President Xi Jinping says that China will award 10,000 scholarships to students from countries included in the ambitious ‘One Belt and One Road’ initiative, which aims to connect China with Southeast and Central Asia through a vast infrastructure program. China is already attracting elites to its campuses. You can spot offspring of North Korean senior cadres at Peking University. Some African kleptocrats send their kids to Beijing to study. Even Singapore’s official class is taking a shining to Beijing — some Singaporean scholars with degrees from Oxbridge are going to Peking University instead of Harvard for further education.

    Beijing's five-year plan .... pensions, electric bikes and much more

    South China Morning Post
    Beijing has released the detail of its social and economic policies for the next five years, following a meeting last week of senior Communist Party members to discuss the plan. It covers everything from financial reform to pensions and electric bicycles. The proposals include yuan convertibility, yuan membership of the IMF’s basket of reserve currencies, cleaning up the internet and modernisation of the armed forces. Other goals include taking steps to reduce poverty in the countryside, the setting up of a strict water resource management system, logging bans in natural forests, and encouraging universities to be pragmatic and career-oriented. And Beijing plans to roll out medical insurance for urban and rural households.

    Abe eyes business opportunities on Central Asia tour

    Nikkei Asian Review
    Japan hopes to create more than 3 trillion yen ($24.6 bn) in business opportunities by aiding Central Asian development through engineering education and other steps, says Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. “The [Japanese] public and private sectors will work together to support the development of Central Asia,” Abe said, speaking at Nazarbayev University in Kazakhstan. His tour of the region kicked off last week. Japan will promote private-sector investments to develop infrastructure and nurture talent in Cental Asia. “Japan will utilize its high-quality engineering education to help train people for advanced industries”, and, in so doing, help the economies overcome their dependence on resources, he added.

    Beijing must move fast to dodge middle-income trap

    South China Morning Post
    China could easily fall into the middle-income trap after 30 years of reform. When a country attains a certain income, its labour-intensive export sectors – the growth drivers – lose competitiveness because of rising labour costs. It must transform its growth model and build four pillars for an innovative economy – competition and "creative destruction"; top-notch universities; a dynamic labour market; and, a financial system comprising venture capital, private equity and securities markets. That's easier said than done. China's population is ageing before getting richer, while the labour force is shrinking. Other countries have had two or three decades to evolve; China has only five to 10 years.
