apps that trap more cosumption

seen at mashable
I started using the Starbucks app . So far, the major consequence has been that I spend a lot more money on Starbucks, even when I don't want to. It's good for Starbucks and bad for me — or any consumer who uses the app to order their drinks before setting foot in one of the chain's stores. Things start to go wrong when you have to pay for the experience. For whatever reason — Starbucks PR would not tell, though I asked twice — you are forced to "reload" your app's cash reserves in $5 increments, with a minimum of $10 each time. Of course, your Starbucks purchases will rarely if ever end in 0, so you will always have some irritating, not-quite-enough amount of money on your app when you are forced to add $10. For example, I typically buy either a medium coffee or a "Nitro Cold Brew" ($2.89 and $4.84 respectively). This morning, I had $2.59 on my card, and I needed to add $10 to order a $2.89 drink in advance — a major overspend just to use the Starbucks app:

Director's Desk Update

U.S. Canada Relationship at the Crossroads

Commentary by David Jacobson and Gary Doer, Advisory Co-Chairs of the Canada Institute at The Wilson Center

This summer we have seen the imposition of billions of dollars in tariffs by the United States on Canadian steel and aluminum and billions in reciprocal tariffs by Canada on steel, aluminum, whiskey, yogurt, and other products.And with the recent announcement that Canada will further retaliate in the United States follows through on its threat to impose 25-percent tariffs on the automotive sector, it seems that escalation is imminent.
All this takes place while the cornerstone of our economic relationship, NAFTA, is at risk – an outcome that would have been inconceivable even a few years ago. While we are not yet in a full-on trade dispute, there does seem to be a gathering storm. And these disputes are much easier to lose than to win.

For several years as the Ambassadors from opposite sides of the 49th parallel, we were responsible for maintaining and enhancing a relationship which most people believe is unlike any other in the world – a relationship that served the economic, political, and moral interests of both countries. If there was one word that summed up that relationship it was “respect.” Respect for each other’s leaders, citizens, and values. We didn’t act this way out of generosity, we did it because it benefited both countries.

There has been a lot of loose talk surrounding the trading relationship between the United States and Canada. Here are a few facts to keep in mind. Canada and the United States enjoy the largest bilateral trade and investment relationship in the world. Every day, about 400,000 people and more than $1.7 billion in goods and services move back and forth across our border. That’s more than $1 million a minute and it’s balanced in both directions.

Canada Institute Events

  • On September 7, we will host a strategic policy dialogue Over the Horizon: A New Era for Canada-U.S. Space Cooperation? to discuss how the governments and industries of Canada and the United States can join forces to develop a comprehensive policy that will strengthen the countries’ presence in outer space at a time when the Trump Administration continues to move forward with an ambitious space agenda. We are excited to welcome experts, policymakers, and members of the private sector from Canada and the U.S., including NASA Administrator, Jim Bridenstine, President of the Canadian Space Agency, Sylvain Laporte, and Executive Director of the U.S. National Space Council Dr. Scott Pace. This dialogue aims to identify and evaluate areas of opportunity that strengthen the leadership of both countries in the new space era as the region grapples with mitigating the world’s increasing presence in space. RSVP here to attend the event or watch the live webcast to learn more about the future of Canada-U.S. cooperation in space.

help us co-edit good news at BeltRoadTech.com

and EconomistDiary.com where we look at summits debating win-wins for youth livelihoods

 from my experiences in beijing may 2017: i would be surprised if less than 100 national and large-state leaders fail to attend belt road summit beijing may 2019 but worry that media who cover may not turn news into action learning students need to linkin

fortunately tech interclity ecosystems with EconomistDiary  may help move this agenda on
examples
fablab cities include boston shenzehen connect round makers and design technolgie- for example until recemtly all engineering (like sculpture - ) shaped designs by cutting things out - today additive engineerins (some call 3d printing) permits makers with comueters to engineer additively ; another fab lab technology is sensors; a blind person can now wear the same sort of sensors that give robot sight and so forth

now dont worry about countries if you could add one or two ports or railway lines so that hard working communities you care about could trade their produce what would you add, and which regional governors could help mark your idea-  try to choose a governor who already knows a world class ecommerce leader - we like jack ma because when he sees a region playing this game he comes and organsaies 3000 people celebrations but provided your place leaders have their own team of tech wizards they can choose who they prefer to partner to ensure that small enterprises are celebrated in and local competitions like shark tank or dragons den start coming to your communities

Some more on Jack Ma. Up to age 30 Jack's great passions was teaching english to thousands of his own age group which he learnt as he guided tourists round his hometown of hangzhou and explored the world with maps they drew for him. On jack's first visit to usa around 1994, he saw the worldwide web-something not then in China. His passion became how to create jobs with the web. Unlike fast venture capital in USA, China required what became its big 3 internet companies to experiment for over a decade only fully celebrating them in 2008 when ecommerce and alipay digital cash helped save china from the depression that americas subprime banks trapped the rest of the world in. In 2016 recognition of Jack's socia purposes came with hangzhou being awarded the hosting of chibna's g20. This was the first time that the world's 20 biiggest leaders had a chnace to claruify how they would help youth innovate the UN's new ssutainability gaols.
