6:35 am
its sovereign waters. but china is extending its reach into other territories to protect what it considers its maritime sell court, which is part of its multi $1000000000.00 spending package, better known as the belt enrolled initiative. that resorts in shanghai call is the in that port. stay in hong kong, thailand, singapore and malaysia. and crucially, it's paying billions of dollars to build poor se myanmar, to ensure lanka, and pakistan as you can see, it completely in circles. india raising concerns in new delhi about its influence and china is expansive foreign policy and navy, which is many times bigger than its own fleet. and with good reason, sri lanka, lost control of a strategic $1400000000.00 hamburger total port to a chinese company after he couldn't keep up with debt we payments, which has become known as china is debt trap policy. china is also developing the only d c port in south asia in august capital colombo. that's the problem for new delhi
6:36 am
because 40 percent of container congo are offloaded to a smaller ships for the short trip to india. and then there is the quad, our port in pakistan built a spot of china's belton road initiative called the china pakistan, economic court, or a $60000000000.00 project linking the arabian sea to china's land lock west and beach and access to the indian ocean cbo, see is critical to beijing as today. china is the world's top oil importer for existing 542000000 tons of crude oil in 2020 last year. 53 percent of china's crude oil imports came from the middle east and passed through the indian ocean. well, let's get some analysis with collin co, a research fellow at the asked roger raton. i'm school of international studies. he's joining us on skype from singapore. thank you. very much calling for being on counting the cost. china has been very strategic in the way to expanding
6:37 am
a switch and in the indian ocean. what is it and game ultimately, i know want to ensure that is on national interest are being met. and i think in this sense, that continue express who the lines of communications that will guarantee and i interrupted excess energy supplies that he gets from the middle east and not a rico and lunch, expending it the mummy. each press in the region, especially even the investment and the bank will initiate the at the, i know also was the good that you trust a property in the long. right? beijing is coming, of course, to be protecting its trade rules. but it's also very clearly in circling india. it's biggest regional rival. well, i mean 2 or the and so much might be and all the state when, while china might be able to master code the trends along the border.
6:38 am
and so far, the only reliable lemme base the neighbor who will be pakistan. whereas, you know, we would talk about the c bought. i don't think that is one a real which i know clean to and india beyond the building of puerto restructure. because given the dynamic between india and it's, you know, solve asia, the coral neighbors in the region. i don't think that is and possible. and so called new dally, right. but efforts by india to, to county china have been less successful. for example, new delhi and tokyo japan have offered to build a port in sri lanka, but there is times seem to be less successful. why? why do you think that is? we have a few factors to consider a one star that has to do with effect that i know dos, you know, make it easier for what they receive in countries such as sri lanka,
6:39 am
to excess investment, what we call no fuel strings attached on those fees. but more importantly is to do with the requirements that you need in order to receive those. by contrast, you know, we talk about japan is more tv in a way. i mean it and still be more on the way comes to, you know, the film and our requirements. we talk about environmental impact assessment for returns and are the requirements and some form of job environment, the sustainability, but also more important disco sustainably deep. and for india, i think when it comes to you for shocked in, there has never been a leading actor compared to i know in japan in the sense, so we talk about and india. and i know foss blanca example
6:40 am
more to pen play, a bigger role than india. i do think democratic countries, collin, or those that say they want to protective all space consensus. do you think they can collectively counter china when you look at the long term strategy? well pushed was democratic, so sorry, these uri, maybe of all booked by the rest of us. all, you know, transparency and accountability that i have to address. we do have an answer to multiple stakeholders, not to say that you know, less democratic. all different countries have the yes, christy endo. but you know, the thing is that for democratic country, these very often constitute a structural impediment when i'm still responding to you know, what will be c s a m. so under my order, whether you're talking about no or breeze or approach law firm where exam book is
6:41 am
possible to come together for this and why it is also important to be realistic about, you know, the prospect of having, you know, a concert approach all the time. due to what i will see as not just about the omen political interest or just the but what to do is, you know, report the, you know, the spring each bus has a queen size ultimately. and you know, each democratic and b will mastered their own resources and their own people believe these based on got a constant. so i think the, the heard those that i believe in or what have to be overcome. you want no more approach you with, i know, do you think finally, call in that china's asian neighbors are convinced that the us will stick with them? or is it better for them to stay neutral? but the need there has always been a sense of, of when we talk about western pacific region means east asia. right.
6:42 am
there has been a long standing concern about you as you will get, the wind comes to the region. but that being said, wow, that has to be what we will call. busy within the, at the doctor that we will, we will see any topic we comes to ongoing in the us where the know me or in terms of the better security. but it's quite clear that, you know, there is some hedging that in place when countries around china are exploring options you on the us by deepening the ice. we are the huge press, the like, my, the power such as for reasons india and, you know, runs germany. you worries, but i think that you know, approach the right to your it, you more than one basket is going to be the approach that is going to be undertaken
6:43 am
in our context of uncertainty, calling co. thank you so much for your analysis. thank you for joining us on counting the cost. thank you so much for having the recipe. she's a firefly found in the for a half test color in federal mexico dying out. unsurprisingly, humans are to blame for the destruction of the force due to logging and agriculture, and even tourists who come to see the so called forest of lights contributing to the extension of the firefly, algiers, john home and reports a symphony of light in the force of plus gala central mexico. these 5 flies pulse and cease in unison. great groups participating in a joint courtship ritual that coordinated displays. what makes this species for penis plus your c special? and in the last few years, they've had never increasing audience. this is
6:44 am
a present for guy l from his girlfriend, erica, that come all the way from france. they thought it was a nice idea for his where they already no idea and different it was a surprise until today. so i'm here for the state authorities say the number of visitors to see the 5 flies doubled in the 6 years before the pandemic. that's a cause for celebration, but also worry the scientists like carlos called darrow phill as almost have it in a moment or relevant a critical this is we're going to see them in a critical moment in their lives. and we disturbed that we disturbed the relationship between them and therefore their reproduction and torchlight phones both distract them sound too if tour is straight from the path, they can also tremble the females who can't fly the concern is that if tourism or prices here don't take care they might lose what attracts their clients in the 1st place. we had an up to see the fall flies right now, right?
6:45 am
you have quite smooth tool group. and each tour operator has a number of people that they're allowed to take up to see the fire flies each night . what we're being told is that the problem can be, is that to operate, to sometimes exceed that number, or people that haven't got a license to just take people up anyway, inclined to sign tools. it's a problem in a region with a lot of economic necessity. 92 months a year to make money from the luminous b $2.00. but many are aware. i'm regulating themselves in one follow guessing collapse like i like in. a lot of the education we give to people is about what not to bring repellant white clothing to be silent for a waiver to begin, let's just begun. hopefully go. i'm paying recycling local materials to reduce the environmental impact study mass. so on the, on the names of these platforms are from an industrial part of tuscola. there is
6:46 am
wood not only for the platform, but also for the bed bases. we use this wood that was in place for these quite rustic tape. all the while he's trying to reuse would others, the chopping down trees all over the forest. it's perhaps the biggest threat for the fireflies logging which squeezes their living space the now every june through august, the visual symphony continues. the challenge for the future is to keep the lights from going out. john holman out, is it a plus gala mix co? now the housing market has been on a bit of a tear in many developed nations. there are many reasons the cost of borrowing has been held down by central banks, tax cars, and a desire to move out of cities. but home buyers are also having to compete for homes. again, some of the world's biggest financial institutions, j. p. morgan leonard and p s. p. investments are pouring money in,
6:47 am
just not being up family homes. financial jain, blackstone is buying whole partners of america for $6000000000.00. the company owns 17000 homes, not interestingly. the company allows tenants to buy their rentals in the u. k noise banking group plans to buy 50000 homes over the next 10 years. and retailer john lewis brand to build $10000.00 rental homes. but there is some pushback against giant landlords. berlin will be holding a referendum in september that would allow the local government to buy 240000 properties from germany's biggest publicly listed residential landlord. while let's talk to one of those campaign is dr. joanna kusha, who is a research fellow in urban studies at kings college, the university of cambridge, and she's joining us 5 kite from berlin. thank you so much for being on the show with us. so why has the city decided to vote on seizing these properties from the company that owns them, but little beside or can use that power. they happen to demographic system and
6:48 am
organize this referendum to end domination of financial markets over our housing system. so what the initiative is trying to do is actually not so much for the city to buy that department, but actually to expropriate them to see this property from the financial corporation and be privatized to take it back to the city with compensation. so have the people been evicted from their homes because they haven't been able to pay the rent. but these are relatively strong rental protection laws. so often eviction is not directly to be, but it's been and pictures of people have been priced out of the apartment or evicted under the guise of modernization. so despite the strong me got protection, but tenants is building this corporations, they have their own legal department and they have been very good in finding new coal in tenant protection laws. busy give us an idea, juliana of the rental prices in berlin. has there been an increase?
6:49 am
oh, does that be unprecedented in pre that especially some accounts really attractive of the city like prospect of meta we've been de la? well, yes, we could see the price of quadrupling so the price of the renting an apartment would be no $4.00 times bigger than 12 years ago. so our investors wealthy investors, you think adding to the crisis by, by buying buildings and leaving them empty. absolutely, the corporation could be created with this referendum operate on the financial markets and they are loyal to their shareholders and not to the tenants in 1000000000. structurally logic go back to housing markets in the city. but john, at the question also of why the city would be a better landlord than a stock market listed company. well, so many reasons being that the city politically must be loyal, good citizen, and not the shareholders who are based locally abroad and up in tax haven. so
6:50 am
the city could also use the income from the rent to build more apartments. and also in this way to, to set it over come to housing prices. and lastly 1000000000 has a huge experience in public landlord. they exist already and all the, all the polls show the tenants tend to be more happy in public housing than then in private. the corporate housing, you talked about john an increase and unprecedented. and for unpredicted increase, you said in rental prices. to what extent did the pandemic contribute to that? not just in berlin, but also in the rest of germany is, is there an increase in the number of renters? well, germany, it's important to remember that in comparison to the world and launch gemini, and 1000000000 in particular, it's very high number of rooms. it's belinda, 85 percent rental. so seeing if the system for all levels of the society. i
6:51 am
mean, almost everyone is a tenant in bill and what the content and what the global pandemic shown, of course, is how important housing is for so many kind of products, including health policy, including economic policy, supporting people who are the fund damage. so definitely, pandemic was attracted building political mobilization because it, it made me even more dire. not the expropriation initiative is based on article 15 of the german constitution which says land, natural resources and means of production can be reclaimed for public ownership in exchange for compensation. it's never been tested in practice. so what are the chances of success? yes, that they citing because it's one of the baby cloth of the german. so you should actually have never read historically been tried. so legally,
6:52 am
we have to speak what weapon, potential new precedents. at the same time, all the legal opinions show that legally speaking it would be possible and if it be possible, we'll see you in the upcoming gra her. and the latest paula show, the bas life majority is for propagation. so it is, there, it is a very exciting political moment. it seems that it's possible, but wouldn't the money required to buy all these properties drawn? i would need be better used to build new homes. well, this would, this would be much less money available for the, for the new home because the city is not going to bind the apartment. expropriation with compensation and compensation, legally speaking, has to be below market prices because the actual temperature for what we're trying to do is socialization is about intriguing. the common who are using to you for common destiny. the compensation based corporation must be below market prices,
6:53 am
right? rental price is extremely high, as you said, how easy or difficult would it be to stop speculation and rising rental prices in germany? well, if they're not random and successful, we can expect that this back to the financial speculation unbelief, housing market could be thought in a way that the lobby unprecedented. it would be the fair case in the world of a locker graphic initiative, managing to break the domination of global financial capitalism. and that's make the political so exciting, not just willing but for the whole world. but the cities attempt to impose a rental cap was struck down by germany's highest court on what ground the problem was not, not with the law itself, which was not faulty. the problem was competent. so within the federal system, it should have been the federal state imposing such low as it was done in berlin on
6:54 am
the locker level, which in this case could be as you would not possible. this is not going to happen with the expropriation, and with the referendum precisely because there's no the president, the federal space, has never attempted anything like that. and therefore, legally speaking, berlin, which is also land in federal state, has the right to right. and the post will be certainly very interesting to see how the spans out. thank you so much for talking to us, john shak jonah, joining us there from 1000000000. thank you for being on the show. thank you. romania has become a dumping ground for most of europe. c, leave a waste. government officials have told arduous era, criminal organizations within the country have made it a big business. and simmons report from bucharest, this site was registered as a recycling center. yet it became a mountain of waste mixed with building rubble ignored by local authorities for
6:55 am
more than 10 years. until now. i think a lot of plastic domestic waste may be induced to other ways in that part. the new head of romania is national environment agency, octavian, but china knew nothing about it until sewage pipes beneath the tip collapsed. a few weeks ago, flooding a suburb of bucharest, aside from the acrid stench and the coal, lawful scale of its tip and others like it. romanian now has an even bigger problem with illegal waste. go east to the black sea port of cassandra and rubbish is a criminal commodity worth millions of dollars. and a determined prosecutor here is taking on the cartels. the amount of the problem of illegal waste trafficking is comparable with drug trafficking to doing its faces. an overwhelming challenge, but he did smash warner de should plan to import
6:56 am
a shipment of toxic waste from italy, so called business men were involved and they attempted to bribe local officials, way bills from other european consignments, like these sho, recycling centers as destinations. but instead they go to basic consideration sites all landfill dumps, pollution on a big scale. this is part of one consignment from the u. k. host of cop 26, the u. n. global warming summit due in november, needs to says the u. k is incorporating enough on getting prosecutions. i was to have a more collaboration of, of, of, from the part of the, the chart or it is where fighting against and be crimes. and then the crimes regards, not romania and not beaten. in my opinion. it's a huge problem for all the product, october on, but sean, who says his investigation team is poorly paid and it faces intimidation from
6:57 am
criminals, exposing your family. busy your life, it's a problem to be put on the mound, but john, who stands beside, symbolizes a different era of ways. crime now dwarf by matthew cocktails, bribery, corruption here and overseas. and there's pollution never seen before, coupled with inaction and apparent indifference in other european states. andrew simmons al jazeera, bucharest, and that is our show for this week. get in touch with us, my tweeting me actually by a g and don't get to the hash tag a j c t c. when you can, or drop us an e mail counting the cost that al jazeera dot net is address. but is more for you on line at all. is there a dot com slash ctc? that will take you straight to our page. we trust individual reports named an entire episode for you to catch up and that's it for this edition of counting the cost. i'm fully basketball from the whole team here and go hi,
