Artisan Business Group hosts EB-5 Alternative Finance Seminar in Washington DC October 15, 2012

Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 25, 2012

Artisan Business Group Inc., is hosting an EB-5 investment seminar where EB-5 regional centers, commercial real estate developers and capital-seeking businesses won’t want to miss, in Washington, DC, October 15, 2012. The EB-5 workshop at Courtyard Arlington Crystal City Hotel/Reagan National Airport will exclusively focus on EB-5 regional center activities, project marketing and investor procurement in China and Korea.

The one day event will feature an honorary guest and speaker Mr. Charles Wang, Co-founder and CEO of GreenTech Automotive. The GTA has recently opened its manufacturing facility in Mississippi. GTA successfully raised EB-5 funding in China and other foreign countries. The GTA project is one of the very few manufacturing-related EB-5 programs that has successfully utilized EB-5 finance and created hundreds of American jobs in the U.S. Mr. Wang will share his personal story and insights of raising EB-5 capital for an All-American manufacturing plant in the state of Mississippi. Angelique Brunner, President of EB-5 Capital, will also be speaking at the event. Ms. Brunner is responsible for sourcing and structuring all projects for EB-5 Capital, including the Marriott Convention Center hotels and City Market at O Street Market in Washington, D.C, as well as the Sugarbush Ski Resort in Vermont.

Other VIP speakers include Brian Su, Artisan Business Group, Inc.; Jeff Carr, Economic & Policy Resources, Inc.; Kate Kalmykov & Steve Anpoell, Greenberg Traurig; Victor Shum, JMBM; Hong Yu, Wailian Overseas Group; Michael Gibson, USAdvisors.org; John Jiang, Micon International, John Li, EB5Supermarket, and David Hirson, Fragomen.

The EB-5 program— on which Mr. Su’s consultations are centered– creates potential for U.S. businesses and project developers to tap into foreign capital sources that would otherwise be difficult to come by. The program, which is also referred to as the “Immigrant Investor Program,” is a 1990 initiative of Congress that seeks to stimulate the U.S. economy and job market through foreign investment. In return, foreign investors with high net worth are rewarded with a desirable green card alternative. Throughout the life of the program, billions of dollars of foreign investment have flowed into the U.S., much of which has come from China. With its growing economy and increasing wealth, China continues to provide a reliable source of foreign capital for U.S. developers. “China’s Private Wealth Report 2011,” published by China Merchants Bank, shows that Chinese interests in oversea immigration and real estate are growing. The publication also notes that approximately 27% of Chinese billionaires have been involved in emigration investment. The interest wealthy Chinese show in investing abroad, combined with the EB-5 program, provide a win-win solution that connects high net-worth Chinese individuals with U.S. businesses and developers needing financial backing. Individuals or business seeking funding specifically for real estate development projects are great candidates for the program.

Introduction to the Money Market

Macroeconomics policymakers have two general tools in their kit to manage the level of aggregate demand in an economy. The first is fiscal policy, which involves government changing the levels of taxes and government spending to manage demand. Central banks engage in the second type of demand-management, known as monetary policy. By changing the supply of money available in a nation, central banks can raise and lower interest rates and thereby stimulate or contract the level of aggregate demand in the nation. This video lesson introduces the money market, a model essential to understanding the workings of monetary policy. The supply and demand for money are introduced, and the basic effect of monetary policies are modeled in the simple money market diagram. In later videos, the various tools available to monetary policy makers will be explained and evaluated using the money market model.

The President speaks at the Millennium Development Goals Conference at the United Nations Building on his plan for global development.

Will Obama loose his mind before the end of his term in Office?

Question by Toadhead: Will Obama loose his mind before the end of his term in Office?
There are clearly issues developing in even the democratic party surrounding Obama master plan. The public is beginning to become wary of the insane spending, congress men and women in moderate districts are getting worried about upcoming elections.
As Obama’s plans begin to fall apart and the international development continues to demonstrate his inept foreign policy skills, what will happen to Obama’s mental state. As the utopia he envisioned while sitting in Rev Wright’s church for 20 year and hanging out with Bill Aires, crumbles, will he go insane?

New Memoir Recalls Fights to Save Ocean Resources

New Memoir Recalls Fights to Save Ocean Resources

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 29, 2012

The world’s oceans have the potential to be the bootstrap that propels the planet into the next millennium. Whether it’s as a food source or a power source or living space, the oceans will be important. It is with an awareness of that importance that Doctor Dayton Lee Alverson offers his new book “Race to the Sea” (published by iUniverse), a memoir of his lifetime’s efforts to preserve this vital natural resource.

Alverson’s story covers his early life experiences, through high school, World War II, his education and his involvement in state, federal and international fishery science and management. His career and story cover the period from 1950 to 2000, when world fisheries exploded from small-boat coastal activities to distant water fleets of large vessels. World catches increased over 300% after World War II, and most of the world’s oceans and seas were heavily exploited. Overfishing and impacts on coastal fisheries led the world community to seek new laws for the harvest of ocean fisheries and resulted in unilateral extensions of national jurisdictions over ocean space.

The growth of the environmental movement in the later half of the 20th century would lead to conflicts between fishing and conservation groups that resulted in changes in national and international fish policies. “Race to the Sea” tracks many of these developments, and Alverson’s personal involvements and experiences during this traumatic period of world fishery expansion.

During the course of his life, marine fishery resources would be seen as a great source of protein to feed the world’s hungry, and later as an overfished and polluted wasteland.

Help!Help! Which class should I take? Chinese Media or International Affairs? Which is the most useless?

Question by Monica: Help!Help! Which class should I take? Chinese Media or International Affairs? Which is the most useless?
So I’ve recently received a full scholarship to study at Fudan University in Shanghai for a month this summer. We have to choose two content courses. I am a freshman in college; Politics major, double minor in Economics and Chinese. I am interested in pursuing a graduate degree in International Relations. I intend on becoming a journalist, specifically a foreign correspondent, specializing in China. I am ethnically half Chinese half white and I speak Mandarin fluently.

Here are my loosely paraphrased course descriptions. I am equally interested in all, however, what is more beneficial to me? Which one is MOST beneficial?

This course requires students to propose a plan for researching one topic or case that he/she is interested. It also involves field trips and watching a documentary about the Media and the Revolution. Topics include media and international relations, media controls, media industry, media and the revolution, and media reforms.

This course is mostly lecture and reading, but we are supposed to keep updated on current events and watch a documentary about China’s foreign policy This covers China’s diplomatic history since 1949, as well as China’s CURRENT international relations with the United States, European Union, Africa, Middle East, Russia, and Latin America.



I am already taking a Chinese language course as well as an economics course, which is:

This course involves writing a 1000-word paper and group presentation. It involves a lot of reading, mostly articles written by experts, scholars, and professors. It covers China’s foreign trade regime reform, RMB exchange, China’s freogin trade and economic performance, the political economy of China’s trade policy, and China’s overall economic performance.

Which would be most compatible with this class? Chinese media or international relations?

Water and sanitation: a partnership for change

This video shows the International Federation Global Water and Sanitation Initiative (GWSI) in action at the Zambia Red Cross Society “Rural Water Supply Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion Project” In our world today: • more than one billion people do not have access to clean water; • over two billion people do not have adequate sanitation facilities; • some four million people die each year from diseases associated with the lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene • 4000 children under five years old die every day from those same associated diseases. Added to this, in times of disaster and crises, the urgency to meet basic water and sanitation needs saves lives, reduces diseases and restores dignity. The overall water and sanitation challenge is best expressed in the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), in particular goals 2, 3, 4 and 7, which have water and sanitation components. Our response is therefore to set our targets as a contribution to meeting those goals. The Global Water and Sanitation Initiative (GWSI) Over the last ten years, the International Federation has established and consolidated a water and sanitation vision, policy and capacity to better address two principle global challenges. 1. Acute water and sanitation challenges, mostly related to crises and disasters, where there is the urgency to provide basic needs to save lives, contain or reduce health threats and restore dignity. 2. Chronic water and sanitation

The essential question is whether these four countries could be the new engines of growth for the world economy.
