On Thursday's Backchat, drug abuse among young people, and world’s most expensive cities.
The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups says a study suggests the number of young people using marijuana has increased by nearly 80 percent in the past two years.
It said that among the 114 people aged between 10 and 35 who are receiving anti-drug support from the group, the number of cannabis abusers has grown from nine cases in 2019 to 16 cases this year.
Marijuana is shown to be the most popular drug, with 37 percent taking it in the past three years, followed by cocaine and methamphetamine hydrochloride, known as ice.
From 9:15am, we’re talking about Hong Kong losing its top ranking as the world's most expensive city in the latest index from the Economist Intelligence Unit.
Activity in China’s private manufacturing sector unexpectedly contracted in November. The Caixin manufacturing PMI fell to 49.9 last month, compared to the previous month’s reading of 50.6 and economists’ forecasts of 50.5. A reading below 50 indicates the sector is in contraction, while above 50 signifies expansion. Inflationary pressures also eased “markedly”, with the slowest rate of price increases in more than a year, Caixin said.
On Thursday’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Personal Wealth Adviser Enzio Von Pfeil and Sunil Kayshap, Director at FinMet. Looking into the oil markets is Vandana Hari, Founder of Vanda Insights.
It is with the greatest sadness that we at Radio 3 have to inform you of the peaceful passing of our friend and former colleague Harvey Stockwin, on November 9, 2021, aged 88. He had been living with cancer since 2015, when he left Hong Kong to relocate to Cebu, in the Philippines. For eighteen years he was the voice of Radio 3's award-winning weekly radio programme "Reflections from Asia", in which he would analyze major political developments around the region, drawing parallels from his vast historical knowledge and experience, and weaving compelling narrative threads in his unforgettable baritone. It was a true pleasure working with, and listening to this supremely skilled, eminently informed, journalistic legend. Vale Harvey.
