Washington is rich not because it makes valuable things, but because it is powerful. With virtually everything subject to regulation, it pays to spend money influencing the regulators. As P.J. O'Rourke famously observed: "When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators." But it's not just bags-of-cash style corruption. Most of the D.C. boom is from lobbyists and PR people, and others who are retained to influence what the government does. It's a cold calculation: You're likely to get a much better return from an investment of $1 million on lobbying than on a similar investment in, say, a new factory or better worker training.
The Copenhagen Consensus is a think tank that ranks the economically smartest approaches to a variety of issues. In 2009, we asked 27 of the world's top climate economists to identify the costs and benefits of the top climate solutions. A group of eminent economists, including three Nobel laureates, ranked the smartest ways to fix the climate. Their answer was: Don't continue to expand current policies. Trying to make fossil fuels so costly that no one wants them is bad economics, in addition to being bad politics.
The Australasian Joint Research Centre for Building Information Modelling is a collaboration between Curtin University and Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) in Wuhan, China.
It will focus on developing the capability of Building Information Modelling (BIM), an advanced approach that enables the physical and functional characteristics of a building to be digitally generated and assessed.
President of China’s Northeastern University Professor Lieyun Ding visited Curtin last month with a five-person senior delegation to open the Joint Research Centre for BIM, which will enable the latest BIM knowledge to be shared among researchers, engineers and innovators in the energy, mineral, infrastructure and construction industries across Australia and China.
