7:21 am
team here in london there is more news coming up from doha in twenty five minutes time off to counting the cost which starts now. getting to the heart of the matter if the turkish cypriot people calls you today and says let's have towards would you accept realities what do you think reunification of look like there are two people think the peaceful unification is the only option for prosperity of south korea hear their story on talk to al jazeera. hello i'm sam is there than this is counting the cost an al-jazeera your weekly look at the world of business and economics this week why a stronger dollar is becoming a headache for developing market economies. also this week digital addicks we look at how the tech industry uses psychology to design products we can't put down.
7:22 am
plus a major setback for libya's oil industry is finding of the all crossing future production risks. the prospect of a trade war slowing down the world's economy means investors have been reassessing where to put their money in recent weeks developing market currencies like the turkish lira and argentina's passo have fallen to their weakest levels in months against the us dollar for the first time the fed is the only major central bank raising interest rates that's lending support to the dollar but the central bank conference in portugal this week the us federal reserve chairman said the case remains strong for more u.s. rate hikes and that means trouble ahead for those countries borrowing in dollars after the end of the global financial crisis rockhold low interest rates in the u.s. meant many developing nations borrowed in dollars now as the dollar rises it's costing
7:23 am
those developing countries a lot more to repay their debts for economists it's raising alarm bells. joining us from london is timothy ash timothy is a senior emerging markets sovereign strategist with london based blue bay asset management good to have you with us so whether it's because of a trade war or because of the interest rate hikes in the u.s. is the dollar now set to strengthen fervor was a big question and certainly has been hurting emerging markets against the backdrop of a fed tightening and tighter global liquidity i think the consensus is beginning to emerge that basically the trade wars the dollar probably will end up being a winner from that i mean that's been the view over the last couple of weeks i think helped also by this sumption of weakness in euro zone and obviously europe has been a bit of downward pressure not helped by politics in in italy and then obviously
7:24 am
ongoing in the moments for all the immigration concerns or immigration battles in europe as well but it does look like the dollar is on an appreciating trend does that mean then that debt stress for developing economies which borrowed in dollars that's more of that is now inevitable. well it means more pressuring we you know we enter the year in a goldilocks scenario for emerging markets or appeared that way with d.m. central banks tightening but moderately but the assumption was that global growth would stay pretty robust and as long as global growth stayed fine then on the revenue side emerging market countries will be more than able to cope with higher d.m. and u.s. rates i think what's changed in terms of perceptions has been the dollar rally that's one thing that obviously increases debt service costs in hard currency dollars for many emerging markets and i think the other one has been concerned
7:25 am
about trade wars and what it means for global growth and i think there is a sense that the global growth is just coming off the pace and the bias probably now is towards downside so you put all those together you put fed tightening dollars strength trade wars prospects for global growth we can embed i'm actually also fairly difficult bottom up stories in many big emerging market countries you've got elections looming this weekend in turkey but you've also got elections in in brazil mexico argentina also looming as well south africa next year possibly ukraine pakistan i mean many many countries the election india. and of those countries i mean there are some significant reform challenges brazil pension reform he's got an overheating story that needs addressing mexico obviously concerns around after you know and south africa you know we have a new administration under cyril ramaphosa but still lots of inherited problems
7:26 am
from jake it's there were to be resolved so you know a very challenging environment i think at the moment for emerging markets and on that point i mean particularly some of the last points you mentioned the sort of domestic economic problems coupled with the global growth rate no longer generating the sort of revenue for developing economies that would help them to manage a higher dollar repaying. debt cost does that mean you know we think about the there was several countries that borrowed heavily when interest rates were low how global a problem could we see is this potentially going to become a domino effect unlike the mid ninety's all our own ninety seven ninety eight crises in asia you know we don't have that many countries other less countries now with fixed exchange rates and less countries are trying to defend them that's positive the scary new environment thank you so much to miss the ash. my pleasure still to come on counting the cars electronic waste recycling to thailand it's
7:27 am
a booming industry but if it isn't handled correctly it could be an environmental disaster in the making. but first more than one and a half million russians have signed an online petition against the government's pension reforms the proposal aims to raise the pension age from fifty five to sixty three for women and from sixty to sixty five for men the bill was submitted to parliament last thursday or in chalons reports from moscow while pension reform is something the ready made putin's various governments been putting off for years and years and years in fact in two thousand and five putin said this pension ages would never be raised while he was president currently russia's retirement ages are below sixty for men and just fifty five women those are a legacy of the soviet years we come up with him nine hundred thirty two when life expectancy in the country was just thirty five for men and forty for women it's
7:28 am
still pretty low by european standards but it has doubled since those times so now there's unsustainable pressure on the state pension funds and the government obviously feels a thing that now the time is rights for some reform presidential elections in march are safely out of the way but they still chose the first day. of the world cup to sneak this this plan out they know that it's a very unpopular thing to do in fact in a recent poll ninety two percent of russians said they were against it the plan is for retirement ages to be raised to sixty five for men and sixty three for when for women that will be done over the next decade and a half the problem is why is the saying that vladimir putin is not actually involved in this pension reform is a government thing they will be watching very very closely for public reaction and if there is any sign that this is going to bring big crowds out onto the streets
7:29 am
then perhaps they might roll some of this back. fighting has erupted in libya's oil crescent it's damaged the country's main oil exporting terminals located in the northeast of the country oil exports are a vital source of revenue for the country the fighting has suspended those exports though the political situation in libya is fragmented but up until this month oil was being produced libyan oil is sold internationally through the national oil company which is under the control of the un backed government in tripoli libya also has a rival government in top iraq where the fighting is between two armed groups it's taking place in northeastern libya ras lanuf and the cigarette terminals libya has africa's largest proven crude oil reserves the ninth largest globally for opec member libya the worry is that a protracted battle will damage the old fields themselves and the impact even future production and national oil corporation is looking at options to divert some

all exports to alternative terminals as output is impacted the world health organization has listed addiction to electronic and video games as a mental health disorder the controversial decision has left the gaming industry at odds with scientists paul china japan reports. in this virtual universe made up of zeros and ones dense purple storm clouds the planet ninety eight percent of the world's population is disappeared and zombies rise to attack remaining humans. it's very fast paced it keeps the story. so much fun that the mass online phenomenon called fortnight is consuming hundreds of millions of players around the world while the goal of the game is to battle for the survival of humanity some people's fragile psyche may not survive this all consuming digital games. we have been reviewing evidence
7:31 am
for the gaming behavior. several years. the world health organization's decision to label addiction to digital and video games as a mental health disorder puts it at odds with gaming industry organizations its reference guide of recognized and diagnosable diseases describes the addiction as a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior that becomes so extensive it takes precedence over other life interests the question whose is truer over the gaming and ignore other distinction activities like sleep like eating like. education or and and that harms the person and why did the harm that wasn't continues. terrence i've been concerned about the endless hours their children have spent in front of their console's since the advent of
7:32 am
atari and pong now they have science as their weapon to limit the time their children spend gaming the w.h.o. says only a small number of people who play digital and video games would develop a mental health disorder but early warning signs can help prevent it and while the makers of fortnight are expected to earn more than four billion dollars this year addiction to gaming screeding nice gaming addiction treatment programmes which may even be more lucrative for insurance companies and health care providers now that gaming addiction is considered a mental health disorder. why this smartphone social media and computer games keep os hoax well designed to the tech industry uses human psychology and calls it behavior design all persuasive tech companies don't conceal this apple readily admits its products are addictive it's even designing an app to

help you use your phone unless the average person checks their phone one hundred fifty times a day psychologists though are beginning to describe the deliberate engine. airing of addiction as an unethical practice and some within the tech industry want higher standards too but in the meantime for a tech company in the attention economy the more time a user spends online equals more money from ad revenue that revenue hit a record eighty eight billion dollars in two thousand and seventeen well joining me now from london is dr jamie woodcock jamie is a research or at the oxford internet institute good to have you with us so first of all how is human psychology used in digital design. well i think what we've seen is many attempts to introduce ways as you as you mentioned to capture people's attention and i think it's no surprise really that these kind of psychological aspects of being included but i think one of the ones we have to point to as being
