What Creates Wealth?

a lecture in English

Why are some countries rich and some countries poor? Is it access to natural resources? Is it tax policy? A motivated work force? These are important, but not determinative. The answer is deceptively simple – it’s what’s in our heads: knowledge. Thus, the surest way to promote economic growth is to cultivate an environment that encourages the spread of knowledge. Such an environment requires freedom, which is why the freest societies are the most prosperous. In five minutes, economist George Gilder explains why.

Hadley TK-421

a narrative film in English

The Hadley TK-421 is here to revolutionize the work place. A black comedy set in 1960s London, it’s the kind of short you don’t see often. More than just a punchline, and with a particular sensibility on a very low budget, you’ll wonder where you can get your hands on a Hadley once you’ve seen one in action.

The Worst Internship Ever: Japan’s Labor Pains

a report in English

Japan is facing a serious labor shortage, a problem that can be traced back to an aging population and a prevailing fear that immigrants will dilute the country’s pure gene pool. In order to keep the world’s third-largest economy afloat, the Japanese government offers an internship program that attracts foreign workers from China, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The program, which allows workers to stay for three years, is advertised as providing laborers with transferrable new skills for when they return home.

VICE News recently traveled to Japan to investigate the internship program. We found that many interns are underpaid, saddled with insurmountable debt, and forced into a form of indentured servitude. Many are illegally placed as oyster shuckers, construction workers, and other unskilled positions. And, despite international condemnation, Japan plans to use thousands of new foreign interns to build the infrastructure for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Die Insel AVCHD high+ color+

a narrative film in German

A Man spends his holidays in a village on Corfu. He is around 50, single, one, who makes love today with one woman and tomorrow with another. He stays in a seaside village, picks up pretty women, like usual. One morning he encounters a blind teen-girl from the village. He comes to a cafe at the sea, sits down at a table - from here he can see a beautiful island in the distance – the waitress asks him to move to some other table, please. She says that the table is reserved. It comes out, the table is reserved for a blind girl who comes in the cafe every day and occupies this table. The villagers have much compassion for her - her mother died one year ago, her father she never knew - the mother was with a foreigner, who had disappeared as soon as the woman got pregnant. The girl is not quite right, she believes in an island, one she can see from here. She believs, that one day someone comes from there and takes her away. A fairtale, told her by her mother. Maybe the fairtale comes true and someone comes from there, - says the Man. From where? – asks the waitress. From the island, - replies the man and points to the island in the sea. But there is no island, no one, you can see from here, - mentions the waitress confused. As it turns out, the two of them can see an island, which no one else can see...

Der Kurzfilm heißt „Die Insel“. Es geht um einen Mann, der seinen Urlaub in einem Ort auf Korfu verbringt. Er ist um die 50, Single, eine junge Seele, der immer noch heute mit einer Frau und morgen mit einer anderer im Bett schlafen darf. Also, er ist in einem Dorf am Meer, lernt eine Frau in einer Bar kennen, alles – wie üblich. Bis er eines morgens einem blinden einheimischen Mädchen begegnet. Er kommt in ein Cafe am Meer, setzt sich an einen Tisch – von hier sieht man eine schöne Insel in der Entfernung - er wird aber gleich von der Kellnerin angesprochen. Sie sagt, der Tisch sei reserviert. Wie er es später erkennt, der Tisch ist für ein blindes Mädchen reserviert, das täglich hierher kommt und diesen Tisch besetzt, keinen anderen. Die Dorfbewohner haben viel Mitleid mit ihr – ihre Mutter ist gestorben, den Vater gibt es nicht – die Mutter war mit einem Ausländer zusammen, der verschwunden ist, sobald die Frau schwanger geworden ist. Das Mädchen ist nicht ganz in Ordnung, sie glaubt an eine Insel, die man von hier sehen kann, dass jemand von der Insel kommt und sie von hier holt. Ein Märchen, das ihre Mutter ihr erzählt hat. Vielleicht kommt doch jemand von der Insel, meint der Mann. Es gibt aber keine Insel, keine, die man von hier sehen kann, erwähnt die Kellnerin verwirrt. So stellt es sich heraus, dass der Mann die Insel sieht, an die das blinde Mädchen glaubt.
