Paul Piff: Does money make you mean?
Talking about money is interesting. I am just wondering if a similar research or study has been conducted in other places or countries as well. Research results may vary perhaps by country or nationality, I wonder.

Michael Porter: Why business can be good at solving social problems
An interesting talk. Thanks. There are many stakeholders surrounding our society, and business company is one of the important players. In order for us to solve social problems, people including business persons have to commuicate with other stakeholders. An idea or a solution coming from business sector is one of the ideas or solutions.

Benjamin Barber: Why mayors should rule the world
Enjoyed a good presentation. Understand in general his talk. How to act to realize the concept is rather tough when we look the real world. I have an interest in "city-state" such as Singapore and perhaps Hong Kong. I am using the word, "city-state" loosely here.

Pico Iyer: Where is home?
Enjoyed his speech. Particularly, the concepts such as sense of home and sense of community are interesting. The world is interesting since it is full of many different people.

Peter Attia: Is the obesity crisis hiding a bigger problem?
Thanks for the valuable speech. It is good to know that medical professionals have such thoughts and compassion described in Peter's speech, when doing medical practices. Medical front must be very busy indeed in developing everyday activities, and everyday practices tend to move to such activities as medical testing based drug administration. To be able to think about fundamental thing is very precious.

Eric X. Li: A tale of two political systems
I would like to add some viewpoints to the comments I made yesterday. 1. We are fortunate to see the world capitalist economy, including China's "Socilalist Market Economy", is full of diversities in different places. 2. How governments build relationships with economy varies according to country, and country itself appears to undergo a relativization process in a certain way perhaps due to relative ability or inability to repond to economc and social problems. 3. When we come to China issue, to what extent China government can weave a democratic element into their five-year plans can be worth watching, even though this element at this stage is somehow pseud and still in its infancy.

Eric X. Li: A tale of two political systems
A good speech. It seems that no political system is perfect. We all know that China has conitued to send a political message on how the nation can be organized and governed. At the same time, we can clearly see the civil society in China has historically evolved, and this development in China can lead us to see a different path towards a society baed on "rule of law" with perhaps with a Chinese character in the initial stages, and we may recognize that this can be a starting point. Cultural rally or value rally perhaps enhance the communications on an international scale. We think that China can challenge the West, and such challenges can enhance the values that the West historically generated.
