COVID-19: Implications for business


Our latest perspectives on the coronavirus outbreak, the twin threats to lives and livelihoods, and how organizations can prepare for the next normal.

Despite ongoing public-health concerns, the desire to spend and shop is palpable. This week, McKinsey published new surveys of consumers in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Central America, and the United States, detailing the strength of the consumer urge in each country. The outlook is brighter. Consumers are less anxious and depressed about health concerns. Business executives are a bit more optimistic this month than last. And our new surveys of global B2B buyers and those in Asia and Europe suggest that confidence is holding firm. 

That said, the picture these surveys paint is complex. In a sense, the world is turning from “resilience” to “return”—the third of the five pandemic elements we sketched out in late March. To get back to business, many companies are running spreadsheets to see how many people spaced six feet apart will fit in an office, planning one-way paths through the workplace, and figuring out adaptations to restrooms, lunchrooms, and entrances. All of those are critical tasks, but they are not enough. What’s needed is a return “muscle”: an enterprise-wide ability to absorb uncertainty and incorporate lessons into the operating model quickly.

Could Data Transform The Lives Of 500 Million Smallholder Farmers Worldwide?


There are 34 million farmers in Indonesia, who make approximately $100 USD per season. They live in complete poverty. The average age of a famer is 54 and they each own about 0.28 hectares of land. There are at least 9 layers of traders (middlemen), including loan-sharks, between farmers and the end consumer. The traders make pretty good money, while farmers are stuck in the poverty cycle. The problem is: nobody in Indonesia has production data, land data or farming data. 

So, I built a simple application at the time to collect the data on the ground: measuring the land and some demographic data about each farmer. We went to banks and suggested they start using land size as a proxy for credit scores. They could start giving loans without any collateral since land size is a major predictor of farmers’ income. They saw the opportunity this represented and agreed.

Now we empower local, young people in rural areas who have smart phones to become data collectors (field agents). These young people collect the data and if a farmer gets a loan from the bank the field agents get a payment as well. Today we have 33,000 farmers onboard with us and we engage 1,800 field agents to do this data gathering. We work with three different banks who give loans to farmers with very low interest rates compared to loan sharks. This means a huge boost for farmers’ livelihoods.

Surely the link between abusing animals and the world’s health is now clear


China is a viral petri dish because the Communist party silences voices that warn of danger, as the heroic doctor Li Wenliang found. Centuries of imperial and socialist dictatorship have taught people to respect the adage “The shot hits the bird that pokes its head out”. Repression combines with folk beliefs in the medicinal power of animal carcasses, a deadly quackery that the world’s fastest growing middle class has the money to indulge. Bats, which may be the original source of coronavirus as well as Sars, are meant to restore eyesight. The palm civet is devoured as a sham cure for insomnia.

Precision Fermentation: What It Is, and How It Could Make Farming Obsolete


Concerns around the environmental impact of modern farming are causing us to reassess our relationship with food. But are claims that lab-grown food will replace agriculture in the coming decades realistic?

British journalist and environmental activist George Monbiot made a stir last week with the release of his documentary Apocalypse Cow, in which he claims that a technology called “precision fermentation” could make traditional farming obsolete in just a few decades.

Corruption eats up 15-35% ‍of construction firms’ budget


Construction companies allot up to 35 percent of their budgets for infrastructure projects to pay off government officials and employees and prevent them from causing any further delays, a think tank said, citing confidential interviews with industry players.

In some cases, companies have had to compromise other parts of the construction— such as the quality of raw materials—in order to accommodate the additional cost and to keep the projects moving.

The natural life of a pig


Pigs are known to be very similar to dogs. They enjoy to play in a very similar way to them and are actually more intelligent than them. In fact. they’re the 5th most intelligent animal in the world. 

If domesticated, pigs can live till they’re around 15 – 20 years old and weigh around 110 – 170lbs. This isn’t the case when raised for meat or breeding. 

Due to the intelligence of pigs, it’s a legal requirement that farmers who do house them must have a form of enrichment available. This can be anything from a football to play with to straw to root through (after all, it’s what their snouts are for).

Heartbreaking Footage of Orangutan Trying to Fight off Excavator that is Destroying his Home


As an excavator crashed down on a pile of cut trees, a desperate orangutan leaped down a large trunk, trying to stop the machine with his hands.

He tried clinging onto the cold metal but slipped and fell into the stack of trees which used to be his home once. The rain poured down as, shaking, he struggled to climb back up again.

The whole forest around him had been destroyed.

The heartbreaking scene was captured on camera in West Kalimantan, Indonesia, as a construction crew demolished a section of the Sungai Putri Forest, a habitat of critically endangered Bornean orangutans.

Agriculture Must Replace Small Science with Big Science


It’s time for agricultural researchers to take better advantage of the massive amount of data they produce and move into an era of “big science.” Open data—data that are publicly available and have been intentionally prepared for reuse and innovation by others—is the path to the research breakthroughs of the future. But to make that move, agricultural science must change in significant ways. That’s what our seven-person task force concluded in a report published March 11 for the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology.

Philippines beats China as world’s biggest rice importer


The Philippines has topped China in terms of buying rice in the global market, making it the world’s biggest rice importer for 2019.
In the latest report of the United States Department of Agriculture-Foreign Agricultural Service (USDA-FAS), the Philippines has emerged as the top global importer of rice. Last month, the Philippines and China just nearly tied at 3.1 million MT.

Rice imports of the country have nearly quadrupled, from just 800,000 MT three years ago to three million MT anticipated for 2019, representing seven percent of total global rice imports.
