The Columbian Exchange: Crash Course World History #23
 
12:09
In which John Green teaches you about the changes wrought by contact between the Old World and the New. John does this by exploring the totally awesome history book "The Columbian Exchange" by Alfred Cosby, Jr. After Columbus "discovered" the Americas, European conquerors, traders, and settlers brought all manner of changes to the formerly isolated continents. Disease and invasive plant and animal species remade the New World, usually in negative ways. While native people, plants, and animals were being displaced in the Americas, the rest of the world was benefitting from American imports, especially foods like maize, tomatoes, potatoes, pineapple, blueberries, sweet potatoes, and manioc. Was the Columbian Exchange a net positive? It's debatable. So debate.

The Silk Road and Ancient Trade: In which John Green teaches you about the so-called Silk Road, a network of trade routes where goods such as ivory, silver, iron, wine, and yes, silk were exchanged across the ancient world, from China to the West. Along with all these consumer goods, things like disease and ideas made the trip as well. As is his custom, John ties the Silk Road to modern life, and the ways that we get our stuff today.

The Atlantic Slave Trade: Crash Course World History #24
 
11:08
In which John Green teaches you about one of the least funny subjects in history: slavery. John investigates when and where slavery originated, how it changed over the centuries, and how Europeans and colonists in the Americas arrived at the idea that people could own other people based on skin color. Slavery has existed as long as humans have had civilization, but the Atlantic Slave Trade was the height, or depth, of dehumanizing, brutal, chattel slavery. American slavery ended less than 150 years ago. In some parts of the world, it is still going on. So how do we reconcile that with modern life? In a desperate attempt at comic relief, Boba Fett makes an appearance.

The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of The World by Niall Ferguson Epsd  1 5 Full Documentary
 
04:00:15
Professor Niall Ferguson examines the origins of the pillars of the world's financial system, and how behind every great historical phenomenon -- empires and republics, wars and revolutions -- there lies a financial secret. Episode 1: Dreams of Avarice. From Shylock's pound of flesh to the loan sharks of Glasgow, from the 'promises to pay' on Babylonian clay tablets to the Medici banking system, Professor Ferguson explains the origins of credit and debt and why credit networks are indispensable to any civilization. Episode 2: Human Bondage. How did finance become the realm of the masters of the universe? Through the rise of the bond market in Renaissance Italy. With the advent of bonds, war finance was transformed and spread to north-west Europe and across the Atlantic. It was the bond market that made the Rothschilds the richest and most powerful family of the 19th century. And today governments are asking it to bail them out. Episode 3: Blowing Bubbles. Why do stock markets produce bubbles and busts? Professor Ferguson goes back to the origins of the joint stock company in Amsterdam and Paris. He draws telling parallels between the current stock market crash and the 18th-century Mississippi Bubble of Scottish financier John Law and the 2001 Enron bankruptcy. He shows why humans have a herd instinct when it comes to investment, and why no one can accurately predict when the bulls might stampede. Episode 4: Risky Business. Life is a risky business -- which is why people take out insurance. But faced with an unexpected disaster, the state has to step in. Professor Ferguson travels to post-Katrina New Orleans to ask why the free market can't provide adequate protection against catastrophe. His quest for an answer takes him to the origins of modern insurance in the early 19th century and to the birth of the welfare state in post-war Japan. Episode 5: Safe As Houses. It sounded so simple: give state-owned assets to the people. After all, what better foundation for a property-owning democracy than a campaign of privatisation encompassing housing? An economic theory says that markets can't function without mortgages, because it's only by borrowing against their assets that entrepreneurs can get their businesses off the ground. But what if mortgages are bundled together and sold off to the highest bidder? Episode 6: Chimerica. Since the 1990s, once risky markets in Asia, Latin America and eastern Europe have become better investments than the UK or US stock market. The explanation is the rise of 'Chimerica', the economic marriage of China and the United States. But does it make sense for poor Chinese savers to lend to rich American spenders? http://www.RebelMystic.com

Prior to the US-DPRK summit the DPRK and South Korea also held an inter-Korean Summit in April 2018. Since those meetings, the DPRK has thawed some of its diplomatic and cultural relationships in Asia and with the United States, and began a new round of public diplomacy.

Significance of inter-Korean cultural exchanges and prospects for future
 
03:23
'봄이 온다',... 13년만에 열리는 공연 의미와 앞으로의 문화교류 전망은? The South Korean art troupe to North Korea have completed their four-day trip to Pyongyang,... returning to Seoul early this morning. The first such concerts held in 13 years held great significance and opened doors for more inter-Korean exchanges in the future. Lee Ji-won has more. Inter-Korean cultural exchanges stretch back to 1985, when Seoul and Pyongyang held performances on the sidelines of the first reunion of war-torn families. Since then, the two Koreas engaged in several cultural and sport exchanges, until the early 2000s, either to pave the way for a major diplomatic breakthrough that led to the thawing of ties or to further underscore and celebrate the peaceful mood in the region. After several years of increasingly frosty relations, the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in South Korea provided the optimal backdrop to resume exchanges. And, according to experts, the latest South Korean performance in Pyongyang holds even more meaning, not only because it was the first in 13 years,... but from the way it was arranged. "This time, it all happened very swiftly, without the South Korean artists having to change their lyrics or anything. It shows how much both sides are trying to understand each other and be considerate." The resumption of inter-Korean cultural exchanges is expected to bring about a ripple-effect in other cultural aspects as well. South Korea's culture minister Do Jong-whan, who led the South Korean art troupe to the North, said he hopes to resume numerous joint-projects, including the excavation of the ancient-Korean dynasty's Manwoldae Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage site, in the North's Kaesong city, and the compilation of unified Korean language for the dictionary, Gyeoremal-keunsajun. Both projects had been running for about ten years, until they were halted in 2015. "Previously, there have been various ministerial level meetings following the inter-Korean summit, discussing specific ways to develop the relationship. So hopefully after April's summit, these cultural exchanges and joint-projects could be part of their talks." Experts say the South Korean government should work with North Korea to set up an environment to make these exchanges more stable so they are not merely a way to breakthrough tense situations but a genuine opportunity for Koreans on both sides of the border to understand each other better. But some experts say the South Korean government must careful not to overwhelm the public with too much North Korean culture. "The differences are still so huge. Simply pouring in each side's culture could backfire and make people feel more distant from one another. Thus, along with carrying out cultural exchanges, the government should also help people understand North Korea and its culture." After more than a decade of escalating tensions and a widening gulf between the two sides, Seoul and Pyongyang are once again utilizing inter-Korean cultural exchanges to narrow differences and work toward mutual understanding and harmony.

Chinese President Urges China, Egypt to Enhance Cultural Exchanges
 
00:39
China and Egypt, two ancient countries with glorious civilization, can enhance cultural exchanges, Chinese President Xi Jinping said when he visited the ruins of temple complexes in the Arab country's southern city of Luxor on Friday. Xi, accompanied by Egyptian Antiquities Minister Mamdouh Damati, paid a visit to the ruins of the temple complexes at Luxor. Xi pointed out the cultural relics are symbols of ancient Egypt's civilization and offer a large volume of archives for researchers to study the country's history, culture, society and science. Xi said China and Egypt are two ancient civilized countries with long history and should enhance cultural exchanges. Xi continued his visit to Egypt in Luxor after his stay in Cairo, during which he met with a number of Egyptian and Arab League (AL) leaders, and delivered a speech at the AL headquarters. Xi is paying his first state visit to the most populous Arab nation. Before Egypt, he paid a state visit to Saudi Arabia. His Middle East tour, his first overseas visit in 2016, will also take him to Iran. As the site of the Ancient Egyptian city of Thebes, Luxor has frequently been characterized as the "world's greatest open-air museum", as the ruins of the temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor stand within the modern city. Immediately opposite, across the River Nile, lie the monuments, temples and tombs of the West Bank Necropolis, which includes the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens.
