How China Got Rich | ENDEVR Documentary
 

How China Got Rich | Business Documentary from 2019

 

Over 40 years China has been transformed out of all recognition, the scale of its growth and the sheer speed of change has been astonishing. The country has seen the largest lifting of people out of poverty that has ever taken place in human history, and today China is a global force, predicted to become the world’s biggest economy in a couple of decades. So how did an impoverished and backward communist country become an engine of global capitalism? What actually happened 40 years ago to set China on the road to prosperity? Michael Wood talks to the people who were there; the men and women who had been sent to be ‘re-educated ‘on farms and in factories; the farmers who defied the government and broke with communism; the woman has given the very first private business certificate; and the US technical advisor sent to China by the UN to kickstart the change. He travels across the country to meet China’s highest-ranking female diplomat and the people who worked with Premier Deng Xiaoping. The film mixes these testimonies with a fascinating archive of the Chinese leader meeting President Carter in Washington and on fact-finding missions in Japan and Singapore. Interviews too with Deng’s biographer, Professor Ezra Vogel from Harvard University and Ambassador James Stapleton-Roy who lifts the lid on the intensive work behind the scenes which led to the US recognizing the People’s Republic of China in 1979. The second part of the film looks at the results of those initiatives in today’s China, visiting high-tech global giants Tencent and Alibaba and China’s top universities Tsinghua and SUStech. We visit a high-speed rail workshop and the world’s fastest-growing container port; we interview the American lawyer who set up the first Chinese deals for multinationals including Exon Mobile and Roche Pharmaceuticals. Finally, we ask Robert Daly the Director of the Kissinger Institute on China and Ambassador Roy where they think China is heading, and if political reform will be on the agenda any time soon. China’s decision to open up to the world 40 years ago has been called ‘the most important event of modern world history’, and it is one in which America played a crucial role. Today China is a major player, flexing its muscles on the global stage. In this film, Michael Wood tracks the beginning of their meteoric rise, looks at the extraordinary scale of present-day developments and asks both Chinese and US experts for clues to the future. With extraordinary access to key witnesses, this timely and important film tells the story of How China Got Rich. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Subscribe ENDEVR for free: https://bit.ly/3e9YRRG Join the club and become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/freedocumentary Facebook: https://bit.ly/2QfRxbG Twitter: https://bit.ly/2QlwRiI ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ #FreeDocumentary #ENDEVR #China ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ENDEVR explains the world we live in through high-class documentaries, special investigations, explainers videos and animations.

Tesla News – Phone and Daimler/Mercedes/AMG Acquisition?
 

With all the rumors and news swirling around Tesla we are now hearing about Tesla releasing a phone, apparently much more advanced than the Apple iPhone or Samsung Galaxy of today.
There are videos of prototypes anticipated on YouTube, whether these are accurate or not is to be seen.

In addition we are also hearing rumors that Tesla is in talks to acquire Daimler/Mercedes. While it was anticipated that Tesla would acquire or at the very least partner with a car company, this is appears to be a good target for Tesla. Daimler with their advanced design and manufacturing and AMG division can bring a lot of benefit to Tesla. Again while yet to be seen this will be welcome news, and could catapult Tesla ahead of the other players in the space.
While there is also speculation that Tesla will form an alliance of sorts with Toyota anything could happen.

Meanwhile Apple is not sitting idle and there are rumors of Apple accelerating development of their vehicle.

LA Auto Show 2021 EV Electric Vehicles
 

The LA Auto Show taking place from November 22 to December 1 2021 is a good place to see the latest auto announcements.
This year we see numerous EV electric announcements.

Here’s just a few:

1. Tesla – while Tesla did not have an official booth, on the floor in the EV space for awards, included a Model 3, S Y, one can only assume that Tesla is preparing for the tooling of the Cybertruck followed shortly thereafter by the sub $30k EV. A cross between the 3 and Y. There have been rendering of what it may look like. Tesla is way ahead with their battery development and manufacturing. Other EVs have to rely on others for battery components.

2. Imperium EV – this company with a location in Fairfield CA, has a slew of EV vehicles. Expect Imperium to have vehicles available in the first quarter of 2022. Impressive design. The ETS SUC and Terra-E(pickup truck). You can reserve yours today with a $100 deposit. Sandy Monroe is

3. canoo
Canoo
19951 Mariner Ave
Torrance, CA 90503-1672
With manufacturing in Tulsa, Oklahoma, makes another entry for a US auto maker.

4. KIA – 2022 EV6 – impressive up to 300 mile range on the RWD, coming 1st quarter of 2022. GT – Line
2022 Niron EV, starting at $39.990.

5. Hyundai – IONIC 5 – Impressive with a couple of all electric models keeping Hyundai one of the players in the EV space.

6. Subaru – A full EV is slated for release June 2022. A few pre-production models at the show, impressive, range appears on the lower end, but a good entry.

7. INDI EV – based in Vernon, California, about 100 employees. Showroom/offices in Beverly Hills.

8. MULLEN – from La Brea , Orange County, full EV vehicles. Impressive.
Mullen Automotive, 1405 Pioneer St., Brea, CA 92821, United States, +1 714-613-1900
Southern California based company, working to create sustainable & scalable energy solutions. Coming Soon: the revolutionary Mullen FIVE, electric-SUV crossover

9. Fisker – Debut of the Ocean. Southern California Fasker makes a splash at the LA Auto Show. A lot of buzz.

10. VinFast – car company from Vietnam – at the show offering coffee, but they had run out on Friday afternoon. They had two models on display. VF e35 and VF e36

10. Ford Electric Pickup truck, retro F100, looks great. Ford Mustang Mach E. Keeps Ford in the running.

11. GM- Chevy – Bolt not present, an embarrassment to those would would have loved to see GM – Chevy come out with something new and revolutionary.

12. VW- The ID 4, a strong contender, with sales appearing to be strong. The Electrify America charging network which came about after the dieselgate debacle. Leaving VW group with billions in debt.

13. Audi – With the e-Tron it will be interesting to see what Audi backed by the VW Group does next.

14. Nissan – Ariya – which is technically not a replacement for the LEAF, at least that is what Nissan says. Up to 300 mile range. It will have the CCS charging adapter, and supposedly the LEAF will receive some sort of adapter or conversion for Chademo to CCS, it wasn’t clear as the reps for Nissan had two stories. As a initial Nissan LEAF owner and the frustrations in dealing with Nissan and their poor battery design, I would be very leary of a Nissan product, and in particular a Nissan EV product.
