London summit ends with panel, keynote speech

first_imgLegal scholars and world-renowned economists gathered in London as part of the inaugural USC Global Conversation on Monday and Tuesday.The two-day event titled “The Future of the Global Economy” began Monday evening in London with an opening reception hosted by Elizabeth Garrett, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs.Thinkers · Panelists Sir David King (left) and Hashem Pesaran, USC professor of economics, discuss the global financial crisis along with other panel members at a conference Tuesday. – Photo courtesy of USC NewsGarrett highlighted USC’s commitment to recruiting students overseas. USC currently enrolls more international students than any other university in the United States, she said.“Our scholarly community — faculty, students, alumni and supporters -— extends to every continent, and we rely on this community to represent our institutional values across the world,” Garrett said in a statement. “We believe that rigorous discussion of issues that are important to governments around the world help us form meaningful connections.”Attendees included members of the USC Alumni Club of London and various deans from the university’s schools. Also in attendance was swimmer and Trojan Gold Medalist Rebecca Soni, who spoke following a panel discussion.Tuesday’s events began with a keynote address from British Labour Party politician Jack Straw. Following the keynote presentation was a panel discussion moderated by Lord John Eatwell, who holds several academic posts at the University of Cambridge. The panel was made up of a combination of London-based experts on the global economy and USC faculty who are also experts on the same topic. The panelists included M. Hashem Pesaran, a USC economics professor; Sir David King, director of the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at the University of Oxford; Pip McCrostie, a vice chair at Ernst & Young; Manuel Castells, a USC professor in the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism; and Straw.Eatwell began the discussion by questioning the state of the global economy during a time of technological prosperity.“Given all this remarkable technological change going on around us, why are we doing so badly? If things are so good, why are they so bad?” Eatwell asked the panelists.In addition to the discussion of prosperity in certain fields and depression in others, Castells explained how the entire economy is interconnected.“What this crisis has shown is that we are not simply a global economy, we are not simply an interdependent economy,” said Castells. “We are a network economy where everything is connected in real time through digital communication networks and therefore everything expands immediately.”Another issue McCrostie highlighted was the lack of confidence in the financial industry.“Probably one of the points we haven’t discussed this morning is the lack of confidence — the lack of global confidence — that the business community is feeling right now,” McCrostie said.McCrostie said he sees growth in the global economy, though it is at low and stagnant levels.“We’ve got to focus on what we can do to stimulate growth in a disciplined, measured way, learning the lessons of the last four years,” McCrostie said.Pesaran also emphasized the imbalance between the financial market developments in the emerging world and the real development.“There is no financial market in China,” Pesaran said. “The Chinese currency is not convertible. Indian currency is not convertible. There is no long-term bond market in China. There is no longterm bond market in India. You need to develop financial sectors in India and other imaginary markets.”King, a former chief scientific adviser of the British government who currently holds posts at Oxford, Cambridge and other universities, focused the conversation on the underlying resource challenges posed by the financial crisis, citing oil production as an example.“Oil production increased from 67 million barrels a day to 74 million barrels a day over the period from 1999 to 2005 and the price increased from $15 to $40 a barrel,” King said. “From 2005 to 2011, the price has been oscillating between $60 and $140 a barrel and that oscillation is a factor in this relatively poor attempt we’re having in regrowing our economy.”King attributed the resource challenges to technological and behavioral inertia.“We are damaging the global commons at an enormous rate,” King said. “Our economic system at the moment means that scarcity pushes up price and therefore we push things into nonexistence by that process.”Eatwell ended the discussion on a more optimistic note, highlighting humankind’s ability to “bounce back” and the optimistic spirit of universities, such as USC.“The program which USC has defined for itself, looking towards the future, points toward that fundamental optimism,” said Eatwell. “It’s an optimism that all universities fundamentally have in their DNA.”last_img read more

 

Syracuse needs to get Ervin Philips the ball

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 11, 2017 at 10:02 pm UPDATED: Sept. 12, 2017 at 1:23 a.m.Ervin Philips ran off the field toward the sideline as freshman fullback Chris Elmore came on to replace Syracuse’s speedy slot receiver. The Orange, at that point, faced a third-and-two midway through the second quarter and struggling on offense.The tactic worked on that particular play, because Eric Dungey called for the ball while Middle Tennessee State was trying to counter SU’s switch and drew an illegal substitution penalty.But that play aside, the Syracuse (1-1) offense was not effective in Saturday’s 30-23 loss to MTSU (1-1). The pressure brought on by former SU head coach Scott Shafer’s MTSU defense clearly disrupted whatever Syracuse was trying to do. But the most concerning aspect from Saturday is Philips’s lack of involvement in the game. Philips was making the plays, but his number just wasn’t called enough.The senior finished with seven catches for 36 yards and a pair of rushes for 15 yards. SU had five possessions in the first quarter and, while one ended in a field goal, it lost yardage on each one. Philips was not targeted once during the period. Yet for the Orange to succeed moving forward, it will need to ensure that its primary playmaker is more involved.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We were just trying to do some other things,” head coach Dino Babers said about Philips’ lack of early looks. “Obviously if you watch some of the plays we were doing earlier, we had some of those plays there. We just weren’t making the plays.”Todd Michalek | Contributing PhotographerPhilips faced several double-teams early, which forced SU to look elsewhere, Babers said. Philips noted that through two games, he has noticed a difference in the way he’s being guarded.Last year, when the Orange almost exclusively ran four-wide receiver sets, Philips said he would regularly get matched up with a linebacker. This year, he has faced more coverage from nickel cornerbacks. Still, he rightfully isn’t using that as an excuse, saying that the plays are still there to be made, and that he has to work harder to make them. He also attributed his slow start to game flow.“Whatever the coaches see out there. They call out the play whatever they see,” Philips said. “So it just happened that I wasn’t really in the mix until so far in the game.”It was clear, though, that Syracuse’s offense was most effective when Philips was in the mix. His first target and catch, which came third-and-three in the second quarter, went for 11 yards.Philips also turned out to be the Orange’s most effective rushing threat, while the traditional running game struggled mightily for the second straight week. Moe Neal and Dontae Strickland struggled to find many running lanes, combining for 42 yards on 17 carries, good for a paltry 2.5 yards per carry. Junior quarterback Eric Dungey has found success running, but he was also battered for much of the game and left one series after taking a shot to the head that was ruled targeting.Although Philips was officially credited with the seven catches, most of them weren’t typical receptions. Three of them — two with Dungey and one with backup quarterback Zack Mahoney — were quasi-handoffs in which Philips would run a sweep play from his position in the slot. The quarterback took the snap and underhand shoveled it to Philips, who cut across the field looking for blockers. Those passing plays were basically runs, and they proved effective as Philips racked up 19 yards on the three attempts.“When Erv has his number called, he makes the most out of his plays,” senior wide receiver Steve Ishmael said. “You don’t really get caught up into who’s getting the ball. It’s just whenever your number is called, you’ve got to make the play.”Andy Mendes | Digital Design Editor PhotoRemove those three sweep plays and Philips ended the day with only four catches. This isn’t to say that SU should stop getting creative with Philips and letting him run the ball, but he needs to get more opportunities overall.The Orange ran 93 plays on Saturday. Dungey dropped back to pass 42 times, 40 minus the two times he pitched the ball to Philips. And Philips, who did have one drop, was targeted only five times outside of sweep plays. That’s simply not enough.In fairness, Philips accounted for only 16 yards on four catches. Credit should be given to the Blue Raiders defense, but without a consistent deep threat to take the cover off the defense, Philips is Syracuse’s most dynamic playmaker. He will need to be the one making plays to keep this offense moving.“He’s one of those guys you always want to try to get the ball to,” Babers said Saturday.SU needs to get the ball in Philips’ hands more. It’s not a matter of trying.Tomer Langer is an asst. digital editor at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.

European League Preview: Manchester City, Liverpool Set For Etihad Stadium Cracker, Mbappe Poised For…

first_imgAction returns in the top European leagues following the international break as a result of the FIFA World Cup qualification matches.The stage is set for intriguing matches in England, Italy, Germany and France, the weekend preceding the commencement of the UEFA Champions League.ENGLANDManchester City and Liverpool are involved in an early kick off at the Etihad Stadium, a cracking game which surely will set the tone for the rest of the weekend games in England.Pep Guardiola has seen his team fail to convince in all departments this season after a record breaking summer expenditure.Kyle Walker is available after serving a one-match suspension, while Raheem Sterling misses out due to a one-match ban.Philippe Coutinho and new signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are available for Liverpool selection and it will be interesting to see just how the duo fit into Jurgen Klopp’s selection on game day. Whatever you doing on Saturday, you can’t afford to miss this cracker!Champions Chelsea are guests of Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, in a game of little importance on paper at this stage of the season, but could go a long way in determining Chelsea’s fate in retaining the title at the end of the campaign.Eden Hazard should make his return from an injury layoff after coming through the international games for Belgium, while Danny Drinkwater could bizarrely make his Chelsea debut against a team he departed a week ago. Considering Leicester City’s superb home form since February, this tie should be a close call.League leaders Manchester United are away to Stoke City, in their bid to make it four successive wins and clean sheet this season. Bet365 Stadium hasn’t been the easiest ground for any visiting team, Arsenal the latest side to find out three-weeks-ago.Jose Mourinho has often made his displeasure known about the international break in the past, and his Red Devils side should avoid complacency against the Potters, otherwise, the outcome could be stories that touch the hearts. GERMANYHamburg appears reborn this season and will be put to test against seventh-place RB Leipzig; last terms surprise package.Hamburg struggled in the bottom end of the table for much of the past two campaigns, but have started brightly with successive wins this term, rising as high as third-place on the log. They should take advantage of their form and midweek European commitment for Leipzig when they clash on Friday night.Hoffenheim are home to Bayern Munich on Saturday evening, a game of massive importance to both teams.Bayern Munich with all their superiority must be wary of a deceptively good Hoffenheim team, who are aware a result improves their fourth-place.We keep our fingers crossed as regards the outcome of the game, but we can expect goals at both ends. ITALYThe biggest game in the Italian Serie A this weekend takes place at the Stadio Olimpico between Lazio and AC Milan. TheThe visiting Rossoneri have revamped the old guard and are looking a completely different team, more like what the Milan fans were accustomed to seeing in the past three decades.Lazio surprisingly failed to win at home against newly promoted SPAL but redeemed themselves with an away win at Chievo.This could be the first massive test for AC Milan’s expensively assembled squad, but we expect them to pass with flying colours.center_img FRANCETable topping Paris Saint-Germain are away to bottom side, Metz on Friday night, as French Ligue 1 action following a two-week international break.The major attraction for the capital club and global audience should be the potential attacking partnership of the trio of Neymar, Edison Cavani, and Kylian Mbappe, in a game Mbappe expectedly should make his PSG bow.Metz are clearly unfortunate to be the side that Unai Emery’s men take-on, and we should expect their four games losing streak to be extended by a number.Champions Monaco are in a neck-neck battle with Nouveau Riche PSG for the title this season. Both teams are level on 12 points and 14 goals scored, second-place Monaco only trailing by an inferior goal difference.Monaco are away at 17th-place Nice and should expectedly do the needful against the home team who lost at home to newly promoted Troyes.RelatedStat Attack (Weekend Preview)December 22, 2017In “England”Premier League 2020-21 Fixtures: Battle of Nigerians On Opening WeekendAugust 20, 2020In “England”UEFA Charge Liverpool Over Manchester City Bus AttackApril 5, 2018In “England”last_img read more
