Climate impacts ‘to cost world $7.9 trillion’ by 2050

Angola, one of Africa's largest economies, is predicted to lose 6.1 percent of GDP from climate change impacts Angola, one of Africa’s largest economies, is predicted to lose 6.1 percent of GDP from climate change impacts

Climate change could directly cost the world economy $7.9 trillion by mid-century as increased drought, flooding and crop failures hamper growth and threaten infrastructure, new analysis showed Wednesday.

The Economist Intelligence Unit’s (EIU) Climate Change Resilience Index measured the preparedness of the world’s 82 largest economies and found that based on current trends the fallout of warming temperatures would shave off three percent of global GDP by 2050.

Its analysis, which assesses each country’s direct exposure to loss as climate change brings more frequent extreme weather events, found Africa was most at-risk, with 4.7 percent of its GDP in the balance.

In general, developing nations faired poorer in terms of resiliency than richer ones.

“Being rich matters,” John Ferguson, EIU country analysis director, told AFP.

“Richer nations are really able to be more resilient towards the impacts of climate change, so this really threatens growth trajectories of the developing world as they try to catch up with the developed world.”

“When we are already dealing with global inequality, for the impacts of climate change the developing world’s challenges are much greater,” he added.

Of the countries evaluated, Angola stood to lose the most—as much as 6.1 percent of gross domestic product.

The study put this down to a mixture of a lack of quality infrastructure, as well as its geographical exposure to severe drought, soil erosion and rising sea levels.

Land degradation in Angola would prove a “significant” economic hindrance, the report said, given that agriculture is its largest employer.

Nigeria (5.9 percent negative GDP), Egypt (5.5 percent), Bangladesh (5.4 percent) and Venezuela (5.1 percent) were the next most climate vulnerable nations identified in the analysis.

Act now, and later

The analysis said rising temperatures meant the global economy was projected to hit $250 trillion by 2050, as opposed to $258 trillion with no climate impact.

While the United States—still the world’s largest economy at market rates—is forecast to be one of the least impacted, the EIU noted that President Donald Trump’s policies represented a “temporary setback” in the climate fight.

Russia was predicted to lose five percent of GDP by 2050 and will “suffer more than most other countries in the world from the negative effects of climate change”, it said. This held true even when potential benefits in increased agriculture were taken into account.

Melting permafrost—threatening infrastructure such as hydrocarbon pipelines—was forecast to be among the biggest drags on Russia’s economy in the coming decades.

Nations agreed in Paris in 2015 to work to limit temperature rises to “well below” two degrees Celsius, and 1.5-C if possible.

To do so, the global economy must rapidly decrease its greenhouse gas emissions—a source of controversy in developing nations which say their economic growth shouldn’t suffer after decades of fossil fuel use by wealthier countries.

“The global economy is going to suffer so it’s not really a case of act now or act later. We need to do both,” said Ferguson.

“Developing countries can’t do this on their own. There needs to be a coordinated global effort to deal with the impacts we are talking about.”

A Trillion-Dollar Boost: Salesforce Releases New Research on the Economic Impact of Artificial Intelligence on CRM

By 2021, AI-powered CRM activities could increase global business revenues by $1.1 trillion and create 800,000 net-new jobs, according to predictions in new study

Salesforce customers are estimated to account for $293 billion of this revenue and more than 155,000 of the net-new jobs by 2021

The global market for AI in CRM is estimated to jump from $7.9 billion in 2016 to $46.3 billion by 2021

SAN FRANCISCO, June 14, 2017—Salesforce [NYSE: CRM], the global leader in CRM, today announced new research from IDC detailing the economic impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on CRM. AI-powered CRM activities will drive new efficiencies in how companies sell, service, and market, ultimately expected to create more than $1.1 trillion in new GDP impact worldwide and 800,000 net-new jobs by 2021—surpassing those lost to automation.

AI has impacted nearly every aspect of our consumer lives, redefining how we engage with technology and each other. With the convergence of increased computing power, big data and breakthroughs in machine learning, AI is also poised to transform how people work. While some researchers predict automation driven by AI could impact 49 percent of job activities and eliminate around 5 percent of jobs, new data from IDC suggests AI could also augment and increase the productivity of employees, specifically in CRM-related fields. From predictive sales lead scoring to service chatbots to personalized marketing campaigns, AI could provide every employee with tools to be more productive and provide smarter, more personalized customer experiences.

According to the new IDC White Paper, commissioned by Salesforce, 2018 will be a landmark year for AI adoption. More than 40 percent of companies said they will adopt AI within the next two years. In fact, by 2018, IDC forecasts that 75 percent of enterprise and ISV development will include AI or machine-learning functionality in at least one application. AI-powered CRM activities will cover a large spectrum of use cases and touch almost all facets of an enterprise, including accelerating sales cycles, improving lead generation and qualification, personalizing marketing campaigns and lowering costs of support calls.

“AI is impacting all sectors of the economy and every business. For the CRM market—the fastest-growing category in enterprise software—the impact of AI will be profound, ushering in new levels of productivity for employees and empowering companies to drive even better experiences for their customers,” said Keith Block, vice chairman, president and COO, Salesforce. “For companies embracing AI, it’s critical that they create new workforce development programs to ensure employees are prepared for this next wave of innovation.”

Beyond the Hype: Companies Turn to AI to Work Smarter
Key findings from the IDC White Paper on the economic impact of AI on CRM include:
AI associated with CRM could boost global business revenues by $1.1 trillion from the beginning of 2017 to the end of 2021.
This global business revenue boost is predicted to be led primarily by increased productivity ($121 billion) and lowered expenses due to automation ($265 billion).
The types of AI companies are planning to use, or exploring, range from machine learning (25%) and voice/speech recognition (30%), to text analysis (27%) and advanced numerical analysis (31%).
New jobs associated with the boost in global business revenues could reach more than 800,000 by 2021, surpassing those jobs lost to automation from AI.
Underpinning the adoption of AI, 46 percent of AI adopters report that more than 50 percent of their CRM activities are executed using the public cloud.
The United States is predicted to lead the way in new business revenue growth due to the economic impact of AI ($596 billion), followed by Japan ($91 billion), Germany ($62 billion), the U.K. ($55 billion) and France ($50 billion).

Salesforce Leads the Way in Delivering AI to CRM
With Einstein, Salesforce is removing the complexity of AI and empowering every Salesforce customer and business user with AI embedded across the company’s leading apps for sales, service, marketing, commerce and more. Salesforce is leading the democratization of AI for CRM, and its customers are among the early adopters who are driving this economic impact. In fact, Salesforce customers are expected to account for $293 billion of the $1.1 trillion GDP impact and more than 150,000 of those direct jobs by the year 2021.

Salesforce Trailhead Empowers Everyone to Skill-Up on AI
As with past technology revolutions, the rise of AI will change the employment landscape as more tasks are automated and new opportunities are created. AI for CRM will soon become a global economic engine for new innovation, business models and jobs. With more than 800,000 net-new jobs expected by 2021 as a result of new global business revenues, it is imperative that job seekers skill-up on AI. Trailhead is Salesforce’s free, interactive, guided and gamified learning platform, where anyone can develop skills that empower them to land a job in the workplace of the future. With the AI Basics trail, as well as Einstein trails, anyone can learn the AI and advance their skillsets. Since launching in 2014, Trailblazers have earned 2.5 million badges, which directly relate to in-demand job skills.

IDC Methodology
Findings from the report are based on IDC’s Economic Impact Model (EIM), which has been maintained since 2002 and takes inputs from IDC’s market research on IT spending, exchange rates, and vendor market share, along with public inputs such as GDP, tax rates, and overall labor force from other sources. The output of the EIM is IT company and employee counts by geographic region. In 2009, IDC added inputs for spending on cloud computing, percentage of IT resources available for innovation (the rest used on legacy system support and upgrades), and business revenue as a multiplier of GDP per country.

To develop an estimate of the economic impact AI will have on CRM activities, IDC analyzed business revenues from 2016 forecasted to 2021, third-party GDP, gross outputs and employment estimates from enterprises in 54 countries. IDC also surveyed more than one thousand enterprises from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and United States on how much AI could improve CRM activities in the first year of AI implementation, the timeline for adoption and what this improvement could mean in terms of efficiencies for a company in cost savings and new potential revenues.

EDITORIAL: Trillion-dollar coronavirus bailout justified, but put working people first

The magic number so far — the amount of federal money necessary to protect our nation from COVID-19’s economic devastation — is $1 trillion or more.

That would be among the biggest spending packages in U.S. history. And it would be as justified. Our nation has spent like that in wartime, such as after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and we are at war — this time against a virus — again.

But unlike in the recent past, we had better spend it right.

That means getting most of that money straight into the hands of the working people and small businesses who have been hardest hit by the spread of the coronvirus. It means helping first the small restaurants, hardware stores, auto shops and storefront hair salons — and their employees — before running to the aid of Wall Street and the big corporations.

Unanswered questions

As it stands now, the Trump administration has proposed to make $250 billion in near-immediate direct payments to U.S. households, with another $250 billion going out months later if the economy does not improve. Small businesses would receive another $250 billion.

There are so many unanswered questions. In a nation of some 130 million households, how much money would each family or individual receive? Would the payments be income-based? Or would a North Shore corporate lawyer be treated the same as a short-order cook?

The Trump administration proposal is separate from a proposed $100 billion aid package — for emergency food aid, free virus testing, and sick pay — approved by the U.S. House.

The Trump administration also proposes to set aside $250 billion for hotels and casinos, which have been hammered by the coronavirus pandemic as Americans hunker down at home. And the airline industry, which has been slammed, could be in for at least $50 billion in federal funds.

These are major industries that employee millions of Americans, directly and indirectly. They should not be allowed to fail.

“This is tough for airlines and cruise lines,” Steven N. Kaplan, a professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, told us. “You want them to be able to keep operating.”

Workers first in line

But we’ve been through this before. We’ve learned. Any federal bailout or economic stimulus package now cannot be allowed to repeat the mistakes of 12 years ago, when CEOs and shareholders stood first in line.

“The aid has to be workers first if we’re going to help these industries,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a news conference Tuesday. “Not what happened in 2008, where the big boys got helped and the workers and everybody else were left by the wayside.”

American workers were anything but first in line when the Bush and Obama administrations ladled out $830 billion to save the banking and auto industries. The cash rained on Wall Street bankers and their pals, with much of it fortunately paid back over time.

A huge cash infusion by the federal government has the potential to help millions of Americans while steadying the economy, preferably from the ground up. But we’d like to see additional measures taken, such as a moratorium on home foreclosures and evictions and extending the federal income tax deadline from April 15 to July or even later.

Economic hit will go on

As President Trump now acknowledges, this coronavirus pandemic could stretch through summer. The economic impact will continue as well.

Moody’s Analytics estimates that almost 80 million American jobs are at risk in some way — a reduction in pay, a furlough, a cut in hours or simply eliminated — from the coronavirus. That’s more than half of the 153 million jobs in this country.

Begin the bailout. Structure it from the ground up, and get it done now.

American workers were anything but first in line when the Bush and Obama administrations ladled out $830 billion to save the banking and auto industries. The cash rained on Wall Street bankers and their pals, with much of it fortunately paid back over time.

A huge cash infusion by the federal government has the potential to help millions of Americans while steadying the economy, preferably from the ground up. But we’d like to see additional measures taken, such as a moratorium on home foreclosures and evictions and extending the federal income tax deadline from April 15 to July or even later.

Economic hit will go on

As President Trump now acknowledges, this coronavirus pandemic could stretch through summer. The economic impact will continue as well.

Moody’s Analytics estimates that almost 80 million American jobs are at risk in some way — a reduction in pay, a furlough, a cut in hours or simply eliminated — from the coronavirus. That’s more than half of the 153 million jobs in this country.

Begin the bailout. Structure it from the ground up, and get it done now.
