intense through the night. palestinians say roughly around 10:00 p.m. there were power cuts across the territory. reporters lives near the beach and he said you could hear the bombardment from the land, air, and sea. you talk to any israeli and they are just gob smacked. they cannot believe in the middle of the afternoon, you will hear the air raid sirens. they will go into a stairwell and the bomb shelters are open in neighborhoods and 10 minutes later, the all clear signal goes out and everyone is back at the cafés at the beach. >> in the back of all of these geopolitical tensions, energy prices rising to a swell and david will have a look at how much they are up.

>> coming to you live from her central studios in hong kong streaming on bloomberg.com as well as your mobile device, this is "on the move." story, shooting down of the malaysian airline in ukraine. here is what we do know. the selling 777 flying from amsterdam to kuala lumpur -- the boeing 777. shot down bywas pro-russian rebels, something that is denied by them. all 298 on board were killed. the malaysian prime minister says that there was no distress call and he cannot say what
10:15 pm
caused the crash. via skype by a specialist and defense studies at the australian national university. for joining much us. if it is proved to be pro-russian rebels who downed the aircraft, what does -- how does that change the geopolitical game? where does that leave the russian president and russia itself? certainly change the geopolitical dynamics significantly because we have a demonstration of a very careful approach to managing russia militia. you would think that this would have required high-level management. you do not deploy this kind of surface to air missile system without checks and balances and you do not deploy them in the middle of an internationally recognized civilian airline flight route and expect that it managed by some half
10:16 pm
trained member of a militia. it is a serious and egregious briefer responsibility by whoever is responsible. the question there is who is responsible? >> i need to get to the reports we've had of a telephone call from the rebels to moscow saying aat they thought it was military aircraft and there were some tweets made to the same effect. >> what we got here is ukraine and the russian rebels are operating. this could well be a ploy. if it is verified, if the , thecript is verified
10:17 pm
militia that are reporting back to russia and then getting direction from russians, then this is a damning act of international terrorism, and effect. this is something the international community will react very strongly to. will germany, france, italy joined the eu and get a backbone and opposing with some sanctions what the russians have done? the question beyond that, it's hard to say yet. to be fair, we do need to wait to verify exactly what happened and we are in the context where people are trying to deceive each other and there is layer upon layer of complexity in this campaign because the stakes are
10:18 pm
really high. gowe have about 12 hours to before the un security council is meeting. what can they do on top of the sanctions already on russia should they determined that they were behind it? >> that's the thing. a stronger act in support of the ukraine may very well be called for. there are a number of matters that could probably be implemented but it could include deployment of american military equipment particularly patriots-related equipment that they have not been given so far but it could be a bit of a game changer in the equation. pretty delicate balancing act because putin really does want to up the ante on this. he has the numbers. he has the forces. they are along the border and they can completely change the equation.
10:19 pm
it's only in the eastern part of ukraine where the russian people dominate. the majority of ukraine is not russian ukrainian. they are quite culturally distinct and separate. i don't think that's what he high to do, but there are stakes here. emotions are high. there's the russian reputation is being extremely silly this this is verified. or do youh harder back down? here's hoping that president putin will recognize that this is something that requires a significant that down. the fact that he has put flowers on the malaysian embassy grounds , the fact they had the minute to an attemptaks at contrition, a recognition by the russians that they've really blown it here. they've taken this a step too
10:20 pm
far and essentially by leading the militia operate without sufficient control and restraint by the russian benefactors, they have really brought upon themselves the empathy of many countries around the world. like inky so much for joining us and for your candid thoughts from the australian national university joining us there on skype from canberra. the effect this is having on the market, we go over to beijing with the details right after this. ♪

>> time for a look. we need a large communication group. he is an advocate of what is called behavioral economics and a social policy advertiser. thank you for joining us. let's start off with a simple question.
10:47 pm
what is behavioral economics and how does it relate? is what it should be. a theory of human economic behavior that is based on actual than ad reality, rather mathematically elegant theory. the important part is simple. conventional economic theory assumes that people act on the basis of perfect information is not friendly to marketing. that would not need marketing to exist. behavioral economics deals with how people make decisions and it is important. bookadvances include the knowledge and have enormous implications for policymakers and businesses. that is why i am here.
10:48 pm
a new office. we have an organization that specializes in behavioral science. >> you talk about nudging. advertisingper than campaigns. aren't you putting the main thrust out of business? >> you are not the first person to suggest that. our job is to work to make sure that every aspect of the marketing activity works as well as it could. cases, it is important to understand that the way in which consumer choices mixed in is in line with our psychology. if you design choice or your product range badly, the best advertising in the world may be ineffective. it is important for us to get
10:49 pm
every aspect of the decision-making journey optimized and efficient. not just cost the most money. >> we are going to run a bit of video now. pickpocketsheard of . a lot of advertising is counterproductive. tell us how this works. >> it is a way to dramatize the risk of pickpocketing. they came from a behavioral inside. signs are dangerous and ineffective. the reason that pickpockets hang instinctively,s, they pat the pocket where their valuable possession is. pickpockets use besides as a crappy jewel to reveal where the wallet or money is kept. we realized the problem inherent
10:50 pm
.n that and took the process we did it in reverse. >> you put things in their pocket. somebodyalized that had put something into their pocket and that means that the but he could take something out. let's move onto the next thing. crime-riddenairly area of town. taking baby pictures. >> be interesting things says kind orgery of that anything large tends to reduce violence. we had huge evolved mechanisms in our psychology that causes to respond unconsciously to choose and our environment. you probably already know about the broken window theory. a color ofthere is
10:51 pm
paint that reduces violence. , andok shop shutters unconscious to that this is an unsafe area. they tend to encourage, implicitly, the risk of violence. we reverse the process by getting local graffiti artists to paint them with pictures of children. we noticed a drop in crime in the area. what is equally interesting is that we set aside a budget to repair the shutters because we graffitieey would be d. once you did this, nobody graffitied them at all.
