Why Is China Investing Billions in Africa? | NowThis World
 
06:39
China has invested billions of dollars into the continent of Africa to build massive infrastructure projects in African countries. Much of this infrastructure is part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, an estimated 1 trillion dollar plan to connect the country to trade routes all over the world. » Subscribe to NowThis World: http://go.nowth.is/World_Subscribe » Watch the Previous Episode: https://go.nowth.is/2LhNmtv While China’s Belt and Road Initiative was only proposed in 2013, the country’s first infrastructure project on the African continent was built decades ago. The TazaHra railway, completed in 1976, was built to connect copper mines in Zambia to Dar EH Salaam, Tanzania’s former capital. The TazHara railway was the first infrastructure project built on a pan-African scale. China’s Belt and Road projects will be designed to create new trade routes within and between African countries. In 2017, a Chinese firm opened a railway network in Kenya, connecting its capital Nairobi to the port city of Mombasa. There are already plans to extend this network into South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. Many observers worry that African countries won’t be able to pay back these debts, placing them in what’s been called a quote “debt trap.” But others think that as African countries rise economically, they could actually have the upper hand by the time they negotiate payments back to China. This explains why African leaders have been so confident in calling Chinese investment a “win-win.” But is China’s investment in the continent actually a “win-win” as some African and Chinese leaders have said? OR is it just a new form of colonialism on a continent that’s experienced so much of it? In this episode, we’re examining China’s Belt and Road Initiative and what it might mean for Africa.

Reporting on IMPACT : why? how? where?
 
02:03
Since inception, impact has not only been at the core of everything responsAbility does, it accounts for literally 100% of our investment activities. That means that each and every one of our portfolio companies provides a positive impact for low income households, SMEs and the broader community in developing countries, all while delivering attractive returns. These same investments also directly and indirectly benefit the staff and clients of SME banks, smallholder cooperatives, microfinance institutions, solar home system providers, developers of hydropower plants and countless other inclusive businesses. MAKING THE SDGS POSSIBLE The only way to reach the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is by mobilizing the private sector and striving for both efficiency and scale on all levels. As the number of investable markets has jumped over the last decade since many countries sought to attract more capital, it is increasingly imperative that all stakeholders, including governments, civil society, non-governmental organizations and the international community, continue to build an enabling environment. We take our role as a pioneer in the field very seriously, and always search for how potential partnerships could benefit both investors and the movement of the SDGs to create a better world.

It spans over 60 countries and will cost over a trillion dollars. The plan is to make it easier for the world to trade with China, by funding roads, railways, pipelines, and other infrastructure projects in Asia and Africa. China is loaning trillions of dollars to any country that's willing to participate and it's been a big hit with the less democratic countries in the region. This makes the BRI a risky plan as well. But China is pushing forward because its goals are not strictly economic, they're also geopolitical.

Due Diligence - Real Estate Investing with Grant Cardone
 
01:05:18
Due Diligence - Real Estate Investing with Grant Cardone. When you buy a property, what should you do first? You do your due diligence. What is due diligence? Reasonable steps taken by a person in order to satisfy a legal requirement, especially in buying or selling something. Due diligence gives you, the bank, and investors the confidence about whether you want to do the deal. That is the most important part of due diligence, the simple question of asking yourself “do I want to be in the deal?” 1.Do you want to be in the game? Whether office, single family home, or multi-family…what game do you want to be in? 2.Do you want to be in that deal? Getting more specific, do you want those tenants, that location, that building? Remember that you need a bank on your side. They are your partner. Grant takes 20 days usually with due diligence. What does he look at from the seller? Inspections, rent rolls, T12, rehab information, and income statements. There are 3 kinds of income statements. Real ones, fake ones, and mom and pop ones. The mom and pop statements end in all 0’s. Nothing ends in zero. Due diligence will find the real numbers. There is still time to get in on Grant’s latest deal. Go to ormondinvestment.com to learn more.

Investing in Urban Resilience: Protecting and Promoting Development in a Changing World
 
02:31
Home to 55 percent of the world’s population, cities contribute an astounding 80 percent of global GDP. So it’s good news for the global economy that cities are exploding in size. Each year, urban areas are growing by an average of more than 75 million people – greater than the population of the world’s 85 smallest countries combined. But their high density of people and assets – precisely the characteristic that drives their economic productivity – also makes cities extremely vulnerable to disasters. By 2030, without significant investment to improve the resilience of cities around the world, climate change may push up to 77 million urban residents into poverty.

How to Get the Best Financing - Real Estate Investing Made Simple with Grant Cardone
 
55:28
** Investing in the right finances for your real estate deals is one of the most important things you’ll do. Creating the right amount of debt, getting the best rates and determining cash flow on your deal is incredibly important. A house isn’t considered an investment in this discussion. A house doesn’t produce cash flow and is another way for the bank to hold your money hostage. On a house, you’ll have a down payment, mortgage insurance and interest rate based on your credit score and other factors. You have to prove that you can afford the debt because the bank doesn’t consider it an income producing investment. The opposite occurs when you invest to buy an income producing property. In any real estate deal, your most important partner isn’t your agent or the person you are working with on the deal. Your biggest partner on the deal is the bank. When investing in commercial real estate, you should look for a multi-family investment with a minimum of 16 units. That’s because it produces enough income to protect the investment. Many times a bank will offer an interest-only loan at a certain percentage above Treasury rates when financing these types of deals. You’ll need to compare rates to find the best one and length of term for your situation. Financing is extremely important. You need to know financing because it costs you money. A difference of a quarter of a percentage point in interest rates on a large deal can mean paying hundreds of thousands of dollars more a year. Another difference you’ll want to pay attention to is your down payment. Unlike buying a house, you won’t want to pay your principle down after the initial down payment. The deal becomes about how much money you can make from it. As the land value continues to appreciate and rents continue to increase cash keeps flowing. This flow covers the debt payment and gives you passive income. There is no value in paying more to bring the debt down. Because financing is so important in these types of deals, you should spend more time negotiating financing than the price. As a small investor, the deck is stacked against you to keep you there. Don’t fall for these money myths: -Buy a house. In reality, this ties up your money. -Invest in a retirement plan. You’re giving your money to someone else and have no control over it. -Buy Stocks. Gambling with your money. -Savings Account. A bank gives you no return on your money by having it sit in your account. -Small real estate investments. These types of investments aren’t big enough to create real money that can become indestructible. Break out and invest. Do the Deal: -Find the right deal -Negotiate the right price and win the deal -Finance the deal Take the time to study and learn.

How to Get a Loan - Real Estate Investing Made Simple
 
01:02:12
I want to give you my new Real Estate book for FREE! Just follow this link: https://10x.grantcardone.com/real-estate-made-simple-book How to Get a Loan-Real Estate Investing Made Simple: The easier a loan is to get, the less money you will make, the more trapped you are, and the fewer buyers will be there to buy your deal on your exit. There are different types of loans, and the easiest to get is a residential loan, which is 4 units or less and you must live in one of them. This is better than a home loan. This loan is not just based on your credit, it’s based on income. Commercial loans are more difficult to get. Here’s what they’re going to look for: 1. They’re going to look at your net worth first. 2. Next, they’ll look at your credit. 3. Finally, they’ll look at your track record, what kind of experience you have. The most important thing to have is #1. You need net worth to get started. Watch as I take callers today and review their deals so that you too can educate yourself on this business. Check out https://cardonecapital.com/ for more on how you can invest with me and not worry about securing your own loan. ---- ►Where to follow and listen to Uncle G: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/grantcardone Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/grantcardonefan SnapChat: https://www.snapchat.com/add/grantcardone.
