on depends on your age, where you l ive, how bigyour family is, and how much money you earn. Buthave you ever thought about how people changetheir spending when a whole ci ty starts to getr icher?

Shenzen, in China, has attracted lots oftalented professionals in the last few years, andthe average man or woman there now earns morethan in any other medium-sized ci ty in China. Sowhat do these Shenzen residents tend to spendthe i r money on?

The f i rst thing is educat ion. This is veryexpensive in China, and professionaI peoptegeneral ly spend more than rooo yuan each oneducat ion. This is one and a half t imes moremoney than they spent in 1995. They also spendfour t imes as much on communica t ions andtetephones. In every roo households there arenow 93 mobi le phones and 54 home computers.People have started to buy bigger houses. Theynow usua[ty have an average f ive square metresmore space in their apartments, and some haveeven bought second houses too.

The biggest change, however, has been in thenumber of people buying cars. In 1995 only fouror five families in every roo owned a car. Now thisnumber has r isen to seven in every roo, and i t iscont inuing to r ise.

Earning more money also means that thepeople of Shenzen can enjoy their le isure t imemore. Tourism is up by t8%. During the lastSpring fest ivaI more than 2oo,ooo Shenzenpeopte travel led abroad. Perhaps this is wherethey started to eat out in restaurants, becausefor many people in Shenzen, and part icular ly foryounger people, not cool<ing at home is anothernew trend.

b Cities with a university do especially well. Theyhave plenty to do, nice city centnes, pleasantsunroundings and usually they aren't toocrowded. The strength in higher educationtends to affect all levels of education and mosthave excellent health care facilities. Then theneane the state capitals, which tend to be clean,have a good economic situation and lots ofcultunal facilities - these are also good.

c Yes, quite a few. For instance, highly r.ankedcities ane found all acnoss the countny, notlust on the sunny coastlines like ever-ybodythinks. Thene are a few inter.esting cities thatwe call the 'Big City Bangains'. These ar.e bigcities with a low cost of living, like Pittsburghand Indianapol is.

d Areas at the bottom typically have high levelsof unemployment and cr ime and a high costof living combined with low levels of education,few facilities and not much to do. However,most of these cities necognise that theneane problems and they are actively wor.kingto tmonove.

2020 - how technologywil l rule our l ives

When Thomas Watson, the founder of lBM,was asked in 1943 how he viewed the futureof technology, he famously repl ied that one daythere might be a worldwide market ' for maybef ive computers' . H G Wells, on the other hand,predicted in 1901 that the publ ic transport ofthe future would probably consist of a system ofmoving wdlkways, where people would step fromwalkway to walkway to get to their dest inat ion.Neither of these technological predict ions hasbeen very accurate, so what do we think wi l l real lychange? The answer is probably not that we wi l lhave lots of new invent ions, but that informationtechnology wi l l t ransform our day-to-day l ives. Thebig trend that is gorng to change things is the waywe transmit information. In other words. by 2020everythrng large enough to carry a microchip wi l lprobably have one, and from there the possibi l i t iesare endless.We could have fridges that can read the use-by date on the mi lk. and order more when youneed i t . We could be sent gas bi l ls that includean electronic reminder to pay them. We couldwash our clothes in washing machines that contactservice engineers when there is a problem. Themachine would then automatical ly arrange at ime for the engineer to come after f inding a freeday in your electronic diary. Even br icks could befitted with electronic identifiers. so that whenan architect walks round a half- f in ished schoolor hospital an image of the bui lding appearsautomatical ly on his laptop.We may use, other devices which automaticallychange your mobi le phone to di f ferent sett ings,depending on whether you are in your work orcasual c lothing. No more work cal ls in the pub,and no more footbal l text messages in the middleof business meetings. Does this al l sound a bi tf r ightening? Well , don' t worry. Just remember thateven H G Wells got the future wrong!

l: Melissa, you've travetled to over sixty countries,pubt ished e ighteen books of t raveI iournal ism, gottost in deserts, swum in five seas, been attacked bywi ld animals, but in a recent in terv iew you say thatyour journey has only just begun.

M: I feel that way, yes. I think, as you see more, youreatise there's more to see. You visit, say, East India,and then you reat ise you don' t know much about thearea. And then you want to go to Nepal and Tibet .So, yes, I do feel I 'm just starting.

l: How many years have you been a traveI writer?M: A long time, more than thirty years.l: What changes have you seen in travel and tourism?M: Well, many. I think these new airl ines that offer

cheap fl ights all over the world have made a bigdifference. People - not necessarity rich peopte -can now see more of the wor ld, and I th ink that 'sa good thing.

l: And there's a bad side too?M: Of course. I th ink, wet t , just as an example: Mount

Everest. Mount Everest used to be probabty thegreatest chatlenge for any traveller. Well, now it 'sfut l o f tour is ts . Tour guides can take you up themountain and you don' t need any t ra in ing becausethe guides do everything for you. There was the caseof Sandy Hi t t P i tman in ry96. Her guides carr ied hertaptop computer, coffee machine and Iuxury food upEverest. She even had fashion magazines deliveredto the mounta in. Now, for me, that 's the bad s ide ofmodern tourism. You tose some of the mystery.

l: Melissa, is there any advice you woutd give to youngpeople who want to be traveI writers?

M: Yes, I think the first thing is that you have to maketime to write. Wherever you are - in a desert, ona boat, at the top of a mountain. You have to findthe time. And if you do it every day, it becomes ahabi t . The second th ing is deta i ls . You must [oor<for deta i ts . l t 's no good wr i t ing 'The sunset wasbeautifut'. You have to say exactly what coloursyou saw, how the colours were reflected in thetrees and water. How the sun fett on your face.You have to be very detaited and look moredeeply than most people.

Do you remember the first time you touched acomputer? You didn't want people to watch youas you started to touch the keys. you worriedthat if you touched the wrong button, you woulddelete all the important files. Children aren't likethat. They experiment with all the buttons, justto see what will happen. And they arelearningfrom every move they make. The fear of failureseems to develop as we go through school. Welearn to become afraid of our mistakes, to beafuaid of having the wrong answer, or to drawoutside the lines.

The fear of success comes later, andwe cansee this often in successful professionals andleaders. So they start to worry, and decide notto take risks.

Don't let this happen to you. See whatopportunities can arise from the mistakes youmake, and soon you'll feel happier about yourself.

TA,pESe RtpyI was born on the 4 November r956. I think I alwaysthought that I would spend my whole l i fe iust being achi ld , and l iv ing at home wi th my parents. Somet imesmy mother woutd ment ion something cat ted .school ' ,but she always said that I didn't need to worry. I didn'tunderstand th is , as whatever .schoo[ 'was, I d idn ' t p lanto go there. Then, one morning, she woke me up earryand said, 'Today you go to school, Roger.' I was terrif ied,and thought to myself, ,This is the end of mv life.'

That f irst day at Elementary School I quickty came rounderstand the most important th ing about educat ion- i t was a l l about keeping st i l t . As I entered the hat t , alarge hand took me away from my mother, and put mein a l ine wi th some other smai l ch i ldren. And then a [oudvoice commanded 'KEEp STILL! ' l s tood very, very s t i l t ,thinking that if I even moved one sma[[ part of my body,I would get some terrible punishment. I checked mybody - feet and [egs - keeping sti[, body and arms- keeping st i t l , head and eyes - oh no - what abour mveyes? Were they moving?

lnside the classroom, there were the same rutes. I wasput behind a desk and a l l I can remember was th is tat t .thin tady - Miss Bradshaw, our teacher - who keotshout ing at us to 'Keep st i t t ! ,whi le she was ta lk ing.'How can I wr i te and keep st i l l? ' I thought . ,Can I openmy book?'Af ter a month the s i tuat ion was the same,and instead of concentrating on unimportant thingstike learning numbers and letters, I spent alt my timepractising very hard the art of keeping stitt.

I was rewarded, as one day the headteacher came intothe classroom. 'Stand up for the Headmistressl'shoutedMiss Bradshaw. 'Who are the naughty children?'askedthe headteacher. 'What about you, Roger?'l stood verystit l and tried to look serious. Miss Bradshaw replied,'No, not any more. Roger is much less t rouble than heused to be, 'and I smi led a long, warm smi le.

lnterviewer: Paul, you were a votunteer in Uganda.Tell me, why did the time you spent theremake such a difference to your l i fe?

Paul: I had l ived a very quiet i i fe in Engtand.I had never left the country, never been ona p lane even. And suddenty there I was ona ptane, tanding at Entebbe Airpor t in 4odegrees. I was met by an otd priest, andthen taken into the bush. l t was qui te anamazing change - not l ike anyth ing I hadever exper ienced in England.In fact, at the beginning I was veryhomesick and I just wanted to go backto England, to my f r iends and fami ly andthe tife I knew so wel[.

z Phonezyou employees wear suitslwhat thevwant to the office.

3 Some psychologists think that wearing casualclothes will mean that worl<ers are moref lesspolite, and wi[[come to work eorlierllater.

4 Phonezyou started to let employees weartheir own clothes to work a few years agollastyear, and they found that sales decreasedlincreased.

5 Simon bel ieves that wearing casuaI clothes atwork means that workers are more stressed Irelaxed, they socialise moref less, and thevleave work e arli e r I late r.

5 He says he thinks i t makes relat ionshipsbetween worlcers and their bosses betterlworse.Simon says some of his cl ients doldon' texpect employees to wear sui ts.He always I occasionolly I neyer wears a suitto meetings.He believes that workers shoutd do what theboss decides ldecide for themselves.He says that nowadays important Americanand European sportsmen lpoliticians andbusinessmen wear cosualf formal clothes.


Interviewer: Today we're going to tatk about casuarFridays. Many businesses nowadays,inc luding some of the b ig c i ty banks, te ttheir workers wear their own casuaI clothesto work on a Friday. So, are casual Fridays agood idea? Or are employees who come rowork in suits actually more productive thanthose who come in jeans? Here to ta lk to ustoday is Simon Hobbs, who is the managingdirector of phonezyou, a mobi le phonecompany which won the Best Employer ofthe Year award. Simon, what do you th ink?How does what you wear affect peopreat work?

Simon: Wett , I th ink one of the most importanrdecis ions we made as a company was toa[[ow employees to wear their own clothesto the office. There are a lot of people whoth ink that i f you don' t wear a sui t a t worK,you' l l be tess product ive, and that youwon't work as hard. Some psychotogistssay that i fyour c lothes are re laxed, thenyour manners wi l l be re laxed, and so wi t tyour productivity. They think that peoprewon't respect their bosses, and that thev'i lcome to work late.But we found the opposite. lt 's true thatthe way you look affects the way you think,feel and act , but we th ink that i f peopleare wearing their own clothes, then they'remore relaxed, less stressed, and that they,ltfeel more involved in their work.

Interviewer: I 'm sure that's true. So when did yourcompany change i ts pot icy on th is?

Simon: Quite a few years ago. We started withcasual Fridays, and we found that theatmosphere in the office reaily changed onthose days, and sates actual ly increased.So last year we introduced the ideafor every day. I think it helps improvecommunicat ions between workers anotheir bosses, and between the workersthemselves. you see more young workerslaughing and jok ing, and they actual ly tendto stay at work later and go out sociatryafterwards too.

Interviewer: Do some of your customers sti i l expect tosee your s taf f in uni forms or in sui ts?

Simon: Yes, I th ink they do. And I do wear a sui tsomet imes. l t 's important for people towear what they feel comfortable in. Soif I go to a big business meeting, withimportant c t ients, I might wear a sui t then. Imean, powerful decision-makers in Americaand Europe, and in most of the wor ld _ theyall sti l l dress very conservatively, so thereis stitt a place for that, but I think it 's niceto give your emptoyees a choice, and tetthem decide, rather than make them dosomething that they are not happy wi th.
