Grab faces scrutiny over reports of higher fares after Uber merger

CK TAN, Nikkei staff writer

KUALA LUMPUR -- TheMalaysian government onWednesday said ride-hailing companieswill be subjectto stricter regulations, in a movedesigned to create a "level playing field" fortraditional taxi services.

Starting on Thursday, drivers working withride-hailing services such as Grab will haveto obtain public service vehicle licenses. This is supposed to promote professionalism and ensure drivers do not have criminal records.

Vehiclesthat are more than 3 years old will also be required toundergo yearly inspections. Drivers willhave up to a year to comply with the new terms.

Theregulations, including wider insurance coverage, alreadyapply to the traditional taxi industry.

Malaysia last year became one of the first Southeast Asian countries to legalize ride-hailing services, by amending existing legislation. As a result, operators likeSingapore-based Grab were able toexpand.

Anthony Loke, Malaysia's transport minister, said ride-hailing services have been rapidly corralling customers, with the number of monthly rides hitting 18 million in 2018 -- up threefold from two years ago.

"We want to make it a level playing field for all," Loke said.

Some chalk up the rise of ride-hailing to poor service offered by regular taxis.Authorities have been less inclined to take actionagainst taxi drivers for running afoul ofregulations, assuming they belong to the low-income demographic. The arrival of more competition, in turn, has forced many taxi drivers out of their jobs and fueled other problems, including overcharging.

Grab, which does businessin other regional markets as well,emerged as Malaysia's main ride-hailing player after its merger with U.S.-based Uber's Southeast Asian business in March.

The government,Loke said, has received complaints of higher fares since the deal and is studying the risk of monopoly.

In a response, Grab said it will assist its drivers through the transition while working with the government to improve the standardof local public transportation.

"We are committed to working with our government to promote and encourage a balanced policy framework that levels out the playing field,” said Sean Goh, country head for the ride-hailing operator in Malaysia.

Malaysia has about 200,000 registered, active ride-hailing drivers --a quarter of them working full-time. In comparison, there are about 67,000 taxis in the country.

Globalization. Globalization is blurring the lines between what constitutes an investment in a certain country. SP 500 companies get more than 40% of their sales from overseas customers. Honda is a Japanese country but it manufactures the Accord at a factory in Ohio. The Odyssey minivan my wife and I haul our 3 little ones around in was made in Alabama.

Globalization.

Owning stocks is one way to take part in the innovation of people, businesses and ideas. Investing in foreign markets is a bet that people in other parts of the world wake up every morning wanting to improve their standing in life as well, no matter where their products are purchased.

Currencies matter. The EAFE return numbers I’m showing here are from the perspective of a U.S. investor which takes into account currency fluctuations from other countries back into the dollar. Here’s a look at how the dollar can impact these returns from a floral print dress Multicolour Saint Laurent Buy Cheap Fake CI1Xmdx9

Currencies matter.

Currencies can add additional sources of volatility, diversification, and gains or losses depending on the environment. You can hedge currency exposure but it’s best for most investors to not overthink this decision. Trying to time currency cycles can lead to performance chasing if you’re not careful.

I prefer an approach that picks either hedged or unhedged and stick with it come hell or high water as these things have a way of balancing themselves out over the very long-term.

Factors abroad. Investing globally isn’t the only strategy investors have become wary of during this cycle. Buy Cheap Deals Antonio Berardi Woman Layered Draped Crepe Top Red Size 42 Antonio Berardi 2018 Unisex For Sale RH6vlj
has been going through an annual funeral for years now. But if you look at the numbers, value has been holding up well overseas:

Factors abroad.

Fama-French data only goes back to 1975 so I’ve tried to recreate the same cycles I showed above from that starting point. Of course, these are all indexes I’m showing here with no costs involved but you can see from a fundamental standpoint that there could be additional diversification benefits by looking at factor investing abroad, as well.

Even if the outperformance doesn’t show up in the future there should be a positive impact from rebalancing and mean reversion assuming a disciplined approach to asset allocation.

No one knows what’s going to happen. I find myself coming back to this chart from the Credit Suisse Global Investment Returns Yearbook on a regular basis an exercise in remaining humble:

No one knows what’s going to happen.

Some may cite this data as a reason to invest solely in the U.S. but I see it as the opposite. No one had a clue at the turn of the last century that the U.S. would be the clear winner among the world’s largest economies.

You could make a pretty strong case that the U.S. will continue to dominate the economic landscape for the remainder of this century as well but nothing is guaranteed. And even if the economic ranking for the U.S. remains strong, that says nothing about the returns investors will receive.

There was no significant association of unprocessed red meats and diabetes risk ( Table 3 ). Sensitivity models that further adjusted for saturated fat, percentage of calories from carbohydrate, percentage of calories from protein, fruit and vegetable intake, sugar-sweetened beverage intake, diet quality (Alternative Healthy Eating Index), or other processed meats or unprocessed red meats, as appropriate, did not materially alter ORs. There were also no significant interactions between dietary factors and age, sex, site, BMI, or pedometer-determined steps/d when assessing diabetes risk. In addition, restricting analyses to participants <60 y of age produced similar results.

The results from this analysis indicate that intake of processed meats, particularly spam, is associated with a higher risk of developing diabetes. In contrast, unprocessed red meat intake was not associated with diabetes development. These data support the hypothesis that the health effects of meat intake on diabetes risk may differ by type of meat (ie, processed meat or unprocessed red meat).

Intermarker distances and orders were estimated using the family data and ILINK ( 24 ) and are shown in Table 3 . Parametric two point maximum lod scores (MLS) were then calculated for all 50 pedigrees assuming either autosomal recessive or autosomal dominant models of transmission respectively ( Table 3 ). An MLS of 21.27 was found for D16S500 at θ = 0.045 assuming the recessive model and an MLS of 14.53 for the same marker at θ = 0.011 under an assumption of dominant inheritance. Model-based multipoint linkage analysis results using GENEHUNTER ( 25 ) are shown in Figure 1 . Under the recessive model ( Fig. 1 , graph AR ) an MLS of 21.8 was observed between D16S3079 and D16S3103. Allowing for heterogeneity, this lod score increased to 23.7 with an estimated 88% of families linked. The MLS obtained under the dominant model ( Fig. 1 , graph AD) was 16.9. Non-parametric multipoint linkage analysis using GENEHUNTER NPL revealed similarly significant results ( Fig. 1 , graph NPL), with a maximum NPL score of 9.81 (P = 2.47 × 10 −25 ) close to D16S405. The information content of the map of chromosome 16 markers was ≥80% across the entire region. Thus both the model-based and model-free analyses provide highly significant evidence of linkage between PXE and markers in this region on chromosome 16.

To address the issue of heterogeneity across the sample in an unbiased fashion, we conducted a number of analyses using the program HOMOG ( 26 ) on multipoint lod scores obtained with VITESSE ( 27 ). These analyses were designed to evaluate the relative likelihood of: (i) the presence of linkage heterogeneity with a fraction of the families displaying genetic linkage of the disease to chromosome 16 and the remaining families not showing linkage; (ii) the possibility of distinct loci coding for the disease in different families; (iii) the presence of different modes of inheritance at the same locus.
