I'll be completely honest, I think I said it actually on the radio. Right? Yeah. I didn't trust him to tell us the truth when he stands there and says anybody that wants a test can get a test. Remember that It was a lie. It was a bold faced lie. And so I understand why the now vice president was saying that It comes down to trust. Who do you trust? And then? As things were happening, I was like, you know what? I'm not gonna listen to try going to listen to Dr Fauci. He obviously studies this. That's where I'm going to get my information, okay?

"Companies and the government are trying to combat together. Tell me a little bit about what you learned during the summit that took place at the White House. I mean, top leaders from all over the country. What Google is doing is saying it will invest $10 billion over the next five years. To expand zero trust programs, help secure the software supply chain and enhance open source security. For most Americans, that means blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. So tell us what that means. $10 billion is a lot of money. Sure. So the summit um it was it was an important event to bring together leaders across various different industries, including tech and the government to share perspectives. It is a lot of money, so zero trust is getting beyond the notion that you can have this trusted inside network. We don't trust anything. And so we have a lot of technologies that we've built in pioneered over the last decade plus to create a world where I as a Google employee, I can go into sit at any network. I can connect. I can securely access whatever tool or application I need to do. But there's all that security and safety built in So a lot of people may have heard of solar winds and some of these other attacks where you have now a very complicated software supply chain, if you will and what we're doing, and what we have done is identified ways to, um reduce significantly the ability for an actor to disrupt that so you can trust your software, and the last part is open source for those who don't sort of understand the difference. You have either proprietary technology and technology that is owned by companies. There's also open source, which is a community of people globally that are really contributing to this open source code. And what we're doing is investing in this public good if you will to improve the security of those open source tools. What is the most vulnerable part that you see of, you know, like the nation's I T systems. It's oftentimes less about the data being stolen and more about the ability to disrupt functions. Think about electric systems, financial systems, all of these systems in our country and globally that are very dependent on technology and an actor's ability to disrupt or to somehow undermined the integrity of those systems.

And this will be a delicate task that bipartisan group of negotiators will have to keep at least 10 Republicans on board. This to clear the Senate, and it does face some challenges ahead. Those senators are optimistic that they have the votes that they will pass this by the end of the week. Over in the House lawmakers are already on recess. Democrats hold a very slim majority there, and progressives have already made it clear that they want to see a much bigger and larger package passed first and the House try to force a vote to try and extend the eviction moratorium before they left on that Greece s that field.

This could be serious, esteemed Mona Lisa, But this one is really the most important And I read this in detailed vice. Yes, Jeff Bezos could buy and eat the Mona Lisa if he wanted to. The New York Times. The New York Times actually did a deep dive on that, And yet there's not really anything that would stop him from happening. The only thing that stops him from doing it is the the assured death of the result. The willingness of the of the French to sell the Mona Lisa to him. But he was going to ask is the Louvre gotta the for sale? Sign out front or what? But it was mostly the only thing that would stop him is that no, it's that it's ludicrous. What's the matter with you? The most recent valuation of the Mona Lisa comes from its sale in the early nineties. I think it's sold for about $100 million, even with all kinds of adjusting for whatever Call it a billion the guys 10 billion guys got $160 billion. So whatever you want to put the value on it, he can afford it. And you know if it were to say $10 billion, the French might think you know what it's one piece of art. I mean, think of what we could do for the museum for the For the kids for the space program, for our moustache is whatever they want to put it into, um, and decided to sell him the Mona Lisa.

This is a bad example. Yeah, support comparison. My point is, you could run a number of ludicrous ideas of the flagpole and say he could do that. And there's really nothing to stop him. No, except for complete lack of interest he might have in eating a masterwork be the most famous person who ever lived. By eating the Mona Lena. He would be infamous.

If you get five in a row. Five. If you get five in a row, wanted to revive sons. In five You get five in a row will give you the tickets. You go to tonight's game Simple. It's easy. That simple. Okay, It's all coming up. They don't pay their fair share yesterday. I don't like that Fear. Propublica released tax information for several years and 25 richest folks in this here country investigative group. Propublica says it obtained the returns of thousands of wealthy people. It says Amazon founder Jeff Bastos paid $0 in federal income taxes in 2000 and seven even though he made $3.8 billion that year. And in 2018 Tesla founder Elon Musk also paid no federal income tax. According to Propublica. Calculations from 2014 to 2018 Musk had a true tax rate of 3.27% Michael Bloomberg 1.3%. Yeah, and they didn't do anything wrong. Everything they did was legal, And here's the thing. Don't confuse net worth with income would be OK. So net worth if you bought a house two years ago for 100 grand, and it's worth $500,000 right now. That's your you've added to your net worth, but that's not your income. You're not making money off your house. Unless you sold it. Then you would realize it all of these guys and and some gals. Their money is based on mostly stock. They pay themselves very little. Or they get really clever. Uh, Mr Allison. Larry else has got a lot of money. He's got tons of stock. Guess what he does. He borrows against his stock, so he takes out a a low interest rate loan his loan by the way, his credit line is $10 billion. So They haven't done anything wrong. And I think people confuse. You know the Oh, this guy's net worth is worth. You know it was a billion last year. It's 10 billion. He should pay tax on nine billion. It doesn't work that way. Because if you pay tax on $9 billion that's not realized income. He isn't spend that money. Does it go pay pay? You know his bills with the stock he have to. He'd have to Exit out of that. And so it really blows up. But you could see Yeah. Do they pay their fair share? From what I understand, Uh, not only enough would be enough for some people. But this is where you also come into where it gives somebody like, you know Elizabeth Warren. She wants a a wealth tax. It's not going to work. It hasn't worked really anywhere else and it's going to struggle, but I think we confuse somebody's net worth. With their actual income. And a lot of times these guys pay themselves virtually nothing they don't have to. They don't have to. They don't have. But I think if if we were all being honest, wouldn't you do the same thing If you could figure out a way, of course you would. You know, you go to your tax card. How do you How can you figure out how I pay the least amount exactly? Everybody, whether you make 50 grand a year 100 grand a year, whatever it is, And the other thing is, they don't earn income like Most people they don't get a paycheck with their you know, they they have income sources coming in from several different places, and there is no just stat. Every two weeks he gets deposited. But are these the uber rich uber? Well, Okay, so the uber wealthy Figure out a way. It's almost not pay anything in taxes. And as as you said, it is all legal. Okay. Should it be Well, that's the question, though. You know, a lot of people say you need to revisit those things. But how do you do that without going, all right. Here's the deal. So we're going to go in and we're going to get rid of quote unquote. What some people call them loopholes. But we're going to take away some of these deductions you can do. And we're going to start taxing investment like ordinary income. Well, investment, you're not going to put tons of money and risk it. If you think that you're going to end up having to pay, uh, you know regular income because what's going to happen? Is everyone going to pull their money out and put it elsewhere? But here's the other side of it to all these companies that you just mentioned the huge companies. They employ. Thousands of people. Yeah, so if you nail them if you change the law, if you try and stick it to them, what's going to happen? They may have to cut down and who they hire. I mean, this is a possibility. Yeah, I mean, totally. What I mean to me. It feels weird. You're making like a trillion dollars a year, And you didn't pay anything in taxes Mean to me? That's weird. Okay, but but you but you know this because you you've invested for a long time. You don't you know you don't Pay until you actually realize that money. I just feel they're smarter than the rest of us. They figured out a way to do it. It's the It's the best thing. Every one of us does it right. Every one of us goes in the person's like how many miles did drive last year? I'm like You're like, uh, you know, 3000 or 7000. You really okay? Yeah, it's they just are doing it in a different way. They all have paid money in taxes. When they've realized those income, But they also have tons of write offs because many of these guys and some of these girls who put together cos guess what they did before they became billionaires. They threw a lot of money and stuff and lost it and they're able to take that money and roll it over and write it off against future income because that's what normal people do. They just do it with monopoly money, and a lot of these companies, the uber rich They give a lot of money to charity. That's the one thing Michael Bloomberg does. Michael Bloomberg. They say he gives about 75% of his money away to charity. That's huge. I mean, you know, so you're going to write that off. Chad. Yeah, let's open up. No. Are you kidding? Are we time to mug the nug muck? We'll get to that. Because that later, But we're gonna do pop quiz. We're going to play Pop quiz. 2775827. We're going to give you sons tickets.

Now the Brazilian beef company that has interest in America being hacked, hacking big hacking ransomware. This isn't an unusual occurrence. Is it? David? No, it's unfortunately it's far from unusual and it's it's currently exploding estimates. Of the cost. The global cost of ransomware attacks in 2020 range from 40 billion up to $170 billion. And the FBI has reported that nearly 2400 U. S companies local governments, healthcare facilities in schools were victims of ransomware last year. And one of the ones that I find most frightening that a former senior FBI official explained to me is the rampant ransomware not just ransomware, but the theft of data and then holding it captive. That is done by targeting big hospitals across America. They go in. They infiltrate the data systems. And they say we're going to release the information of your of your patients on the Web, and as you give us $50 million This is frightening, frightening stuff. So where are the biggest threats from?

"Billionaire Peter tell an island Howard back New 10 billion Crypto exchange so that I would have. I can't buy gasoline in Northern Virginia. What's up, Brian? This does not look good. Yeah. I mean, there are so you mean you're right. Those headlines air You put them all together and you go. What the heck is going on out there? We? Um when? When government Is as big as it is. Right now. I believe you get all kinds of most indigestible things happening. You know, people think are many people think the government can run everything but all it really does is create major problems. So for for for Example. Last Friday. We had unemployment report everyone thought That the number was going to come in huge over a million jobs. I'm sure you talked about it for the month and we only had about 250,000 jobs. And the reason is unemployment benefits are so generous that you know, did workers are employers are having a hard time bringing workers into the workforce. And so one of the things that happened is people thought. Well, maybe the economy has slow and it and it is Um, but we're going to eventually get those jobs anyway. It's just all about a timing issue. On Ben, You end up with states on one hand cutting these benefits off like Montana, North Carolina, on other hand in California, with Governor Newsome, uh, adding more to these benefits with an election coming up. I think people start to get confused about what's really going on and who can survive. And so you know, one of the when, when I look at the economy today way Have better news on the virus on hospitalizations, Death cases. The Fed is printing money like crazy on and we're spending money like crazy. And so will we will have one month things where people analyze that data. Come to the conclusion that something's going wrong. But in the end the economy this year is going to boom. Now we're running out of gas in Virginia because of pipeline Had it was a sight was cyber attacked and one of the things that happens when government gets involved. In an economy is you actually become more vulnerable? One of the first things that Biden administration did was cut. It was in the Keystone Pipeline. Well, That makes us more vulnerable to this other pipeline. And so when governments managing the economy you're going to get headlines that sound you know the and that in fact, details things that aren't good. But in my belief of eventually the market figures out a way to get those goods to us to get those jobs in people's hands to get people back to work. Brian, I am for disclosure of the audience. I'm long on Amazon and I'm about as long as long can be on Amazon. Yesterday. Amazon did a bond offering two days ago. Now there was the lowest differential between the U. S treasury of the same period and a private company ever. Is Amazon becoming the new reserve currency? I mean, that was astonishing. What happened? Yeah, yeah, that's where you know right now you when I'm when I'm doing a speech these days, this is the line. I start with. On one hand. This is the easiest time I have ever had to forecast. Now. I heard all the headlines that you you know, you mentioned I tried at least make sense of some of them. But the it's easiest because we're printing all this money shoving, you know, government spending and borrowing from the future into people's hands that they get to spend. And and that means the economy is gonna boom on. Plus, we're reopening after a pandemic, these air all unprecedented things. Amazon winds. In every way possible. I mean, if you think about being people to sit on the couch instead of get a job Well, that makes it really hard for mom and pop retailers to open up. And Amazon just keeps winning.

We had talked about Amazon and the problem they have with fraudulent products being marketed on their website, and it's been going on for years. Well, Amazon announcing that they had stopped, I think was 10 billion listings in their counterfeit crackdown. That's good news it because we don't know about you guys, but I've received things from Amazon. That I purchased on Amazon and it had questionable quality. Now with this, it sounds like they're trying to clean up their sight. Yeah, I mean, you know, we had the expose and the Wall Street Journal. I think it was last year about the rip offs that had put a put a bird feeder company out of business. I think they were based out of Delaware or something like that. Just all these knockoffs that are getting pushed on to the website and Amazon was really doing just about nothing. Okay, Ted, you go look at that stuff. And Yeah, they started to do a lot more now. They like you said they blocked 10 billion products. Remember going on there? Again. I don't want to point to Amazon is being altruistic here. I mean, this was a significant threat to their own business. I just think of it. I mean, Tucker you ever used eBay in the past? Way back in the day. Maybe wait a decade ago, and the feeling that I had went searching on eBay was Men. I just don't know if I can trust this. Like I'm going to get stuck. I'm going to pay a whole bunch of money for something and it's gonna end up being a knockoff because that was the story. I heard over and over, and I think it's eBay has had a lot of success in some areas they developed. What was the payment platform? That thing about PayPal? PayPal, which has been hugely successful. I was Elon Musk, by the way, but, you know, eBay is a sight as a whole. Has lost out in popularity and demand because of the problems that they had with people ripping other people off and so counterfeiters and all sorts of stuff really, I think knocked down a peg or two and Amazons trying to combat that. I do applaud what they're doing here. They destroyed two million counterfeit products that were sent to its warehouse last year before they could be sold. And they did say that fewer than 0.1%. All items that are sold on the site received counterfeit complaints from shoppers. Other things I'd like to see Amazon do I mean, I'm not even to talk about the all the problems that they have from an antitrust perspective, like I would love to see them stop ripping off of their products that go on to their website and competing with everybody that sells their stuff on their market place, But I think that's a story for another day. Low hanging fruit. How about all the fake reviews? Yeah, it would be pretty easy to clean that up. Uh, you know, there's so many out there and you know what? Just on, Lee show reviews from people that you've verified the purchase on How easy with that. Like whenever I see something that has like over 6000 reviews or something stupid, like I'm like, all right, well, my red flag is now off, Get rid of them and just say, Look, you know, you can only write a review on a product if you actually bought it. And I don drama and then, like the actual reviews if you go on, actually read them, they're like it's perfect spelling. Perfect. Rammer is like, Come on, please. It's Yeah, it's hot garbage. We all know there are sites that you can go to personally and go. Say, Hey, I'd like to buy 500 Amazon reviews for this life. Yeah. She's absolutely it's not. There's not happening in some really super shady quarter of the Internet. It is pretty public out there would be pretty easy. Don't trust the reviews on Amazon products, although I will say if you're looking for like 15 minutes of a good read, Go search out some of the funniest reviews on Amazon. They are pretty excellent. Go look it like they have watches on Amazon for like $700,000 go read some of the reviews of those products. There are just really some good comedy gold that people have spent a lot of time thinking about there, so I would recommend some of that stuff. Much. Wait. Did you guys gain during the pandemic?

And these videos of people like drinking some drink and just shed. Oh, yeah, all those through the roof right now. They are their way through the roof. Right now. They're always there.

We have a great opportunity ahead of us, which is the expansion of our addressable market into the units that were with Huawei and high silicon and you know, and the ability to Saying that that market share, especially in the premium, high, teary in it in the market like this smartphone, which is mature it Zen. Incredible. I think driver for business not into the future. You don't have that often. But there you have $10 billion of addressable market becoming available all of a sudden in a mature market. That's one. The other one is. We continue to diversify the company and we have an incredible story in automotive In IRA T segments and two consecutive quarters of a billion dollar in I A T and now guiding 1.3 billion for next quarter. That is the reason or so excited by the company. Staying on smartphones for a moment. As you say it is a mature market. So what is your strategy aside from while way to continue to grow in the smartphone market? Okay, um In five g. It's It's becoming crystal clear to us that the strategy which is really working well for the company is basically provide the premium and high Teer android experience with snapdragon and attaching our ref remit. And we have got ourselves in a situation of the really when you think about premium android.

Oprah Show me, including honor. In that put coke and a very good position. So that is really being the key driver on the strategy. We are seeing that 1.5 multiplier we talked about. You know what the beginning of five g from 14 to 5 Day We saved 1.5 times the revenue because of our chips That and our Ephron and And we're just the beginning of that, as outlined in there in the skull.

There's really more demand for products that we can supply and, uh, you know, in in one hand is a good position to be in It shows that it really There's a lot of the man for technology, but we have utilize her scale and put a lot of actions in place to get out of this capacity crunch. You know, we have the unique ability to multi source products. Even if they are at the leading semiconductor technology node. We have ability to leverage movies, forcing. We also put a lot of capacity planning. In place and we have the scale to make capacity, demand commitments and get the capacity in return. And that's why even in the middle off this very difficult supply chain situation we continue to generate growth have a very good guide, and we have Linus sight's off material improvements and supply for us towards the end of the calendar year. So what exactly does that mean? At the end of the calendar year? What do you expect to happen?

You can even think about you. Have you have a traditional car company? You end the technology Qualcomm that could be equal to what a company like Tesla can do. And we see that reflected in the numbers. We we added another bilion and our pipeline off, you know off automotive revenues is now in excess off nine billion Including A number of technologies they're required by this digital chassis. And the new segment. I think we're talking about it, and we have a lot of growth opportunity because it's highly diversified. Is Ri OT excitement and within that segment, there are few things worth highlighted. That could be very big bets for us one If the conversions of computers and phones you know, the computer became a communicator device, I'm sure when you go to your computer right now number one years case Doing Zoom, you know, calls and it Zraly changed the use case into computer more to where the phone looks like. It's connected as cameras, Yes, Multimedia and with the acquisition of new Via we expected that we're gonna be a very good provider of what the future of PCs look like. And the other big bet it's augmented reality. We're just the beginning of that. I think we have great progress where companies like Facebook for Oculus Microsoft for the Enterprise or holo lens, and it could be the next fall. So we we are excited about the tea segment. And we'll keep going at it. Interesting now, so many changes happening in the chip business Right now.

K-Pop band BTS scores huge hit on South Korea stock market in management firm's IPO
"And girl groups have been a huge force the music industry for decades Now, some came together organically childhood friends who met in church You're harmonizing street corners. Then there were those who were manufactured. Take, for example, Menudo or the Spice Girls. But in recent years no one has dominated the space quite like the mostly prefab pop bands coming out of South Korea. K pop, as it's known in the West is South Korea's biggest export worth about $5 billion and is expected to rake in more than 10 billion for the country over the next decade. At the moment. The biggest fan of them all is a seven person group known as BTS, who are enormous global superstars, and they flooded the American pop music scene in the past few years. And 2017 BTS was the first group from Korea ever to win a Billboard award. And just this past summer, BTS became the first all Korean actor hit number one on USS Top Billboard chart Top 100. With its first all English track called Dynamite. Shoes on remarkable mill. That's right. Get trump not unknown like a rotten things. When a market jump up to the cabin, the throne, think down coming on my phone. Nice piano, gamma pain. This'll be like money. And just yesterday they became the first K pop group to land on billboards. Rap albums chart. Okay, That's the music side. But perhaps the most interesting development in the bands. Cultural dominance recently is BTS and its label offered an AIPO on the stock market in Seoul. Those are the eye popping fax about K pop, But they're so are the reports of how these groups come to be, including how many are groomed from a young age, their lives dictated by managers and coaches who monitor their diets and they're dating lives. Joining us Now it examines the business of K Pop is writer and self described K pop columnist at Billboard. Jeff Benjamin, Jeff, Thanks for being with US Hello. Thank you for having me So just to be clear this AIPO is not an investment literally in this one band. So what did investors actually buy into Yeah, I think you know, really great metaphor when we're talking about the music industry in South Korea is kind of going back to that time of Motown or even the old Hollywood studios where it's not just one label that only distributes their music, but rather, it's sort of buying into the larger vision GTs is under a big hit entertainment. Which is ah, larger label talent agency that not only houses BTS to distribute their music but manages them handles. Their outside projects are the ones that are kind of developing more acts putting out their music videos. Working on their endorsement deals is kind of an all in one system where it's not just about the music per se, but rather sort of The larger entertainment aspects of all their artists, and that's kind of what the that's why you hear them called big Kid Entertainment versus Say, You know our Republic records or universal music. So people are buying into big hit entertainment. Exactly, And you know, that's just not even that's not even just BTS.

"All wonder at a time when they're talking about borrowing almost $10 billion to spare state workers being laid off. Haven't we always wondered how much how much fat is there with tens of thousands of state workers? You know how many jobs or just patronage jobs? How many jobs are well, They're really doing 10 hours of work, and they're getting paid for 40 And I know this is sounding very insulting. If your state worker I don't mean for it to be. I understand many of you are doing great work and important work and the jobs that you can't cut, all right? If it's to protect Children say you need that. But here's here's an example of what they could have done. Look at the nightmare that motor vehicles is now we're still having these ridiculous and long lines. What do they solve it with a well put Porta Johns out there since we can't get her act together, And if you had wanted to save a little bit of money Um some of those state workers at you, you Furlow them And you just say, Guess what? Your registrations. Your license is if they're still in good standing There indefinitely in good standing. You don't have to renew anything. They are indefinitely in good standing right there. So much of the work for motor vehicles. You don't need a lot of the workers just things like that. Lawns need to be mowed sides of highways need to be mowed. But let him go until it's a problem with where rodents are going to be there. Don't don't don't do everything like normal because nothing is normal right now, but they're not willing to look at cuts. So they're going to be doing this to you today, almost $10 billion borrowed. Is this the right move? Sam and Somerset? You're on New Jersey, one of 1.5 Hey, thank you for taking my call. Absolutely not. I'm not in support of this. $10 billion. You're going to raise our taxes. They're going to kick us out of New Jersey. Um There's just so much waste. In the government they're looking at. Equipped for long. People's $2020 reduced the hours some of those things to save some money and then East.

I understand. There are a lot of great workers and all those things. But now we're paying the retirement fund, the medical, dental pension and all those other things, which is unsustainable. It can't go on, and it still hasn't been fully addressed. And you're totally right. So many things. And, like Donna Murphy is all Some of the programme saying that is so is ready to sign the bill and and stuff like that. It could. I do not know how long we can continue, I think is gonna happen by tonight. And you know, this ought to be pointed out to we don't even know what the budget is yet. It is because the whole process got pushed off because of this pandemic. And so we don't even know yet.

Small Business Rescue Earned Banks $10 Billion In Fees
"Right now small businesses are desperate for loans. Congress allocated three hundred and forty nine billion dollars for small businesses. That money was gone in less than two weeks but not all of it went to small businesses around. Ten billion dollars went to banks to cover processing fees. Npr's Laura Sullivan has been looking into financial records. Good Morning Laura. Good morning at ten billion dollars is a lot of money. What are banks doing to to earn that money? So banks like J. P. Morgan Chase Bank of America. Pnc and dozens of others are processing the loans. They're essentially the middlemen. They take the applications from their small business clients and they funnel those requests up to the Small Business Administration which approves the loan and what's important to note here. Is that the money the banks are getting for? Their clients isn't their money. I mean this isn't bank money. This is taxpayer money. Taxpayers are funding loans for small businesses to cover things like payroll rent and utilities during the crisis. Okay something for taxpayers to think about. Let me ask you. What's the incentives for the banks to process all these small business loans so fees? We took a deep dive into the public financial records of companies and banks and we found the banks are making billions of dollars in fees. According to the programs rules banks can take anywhere from one to five percent of the entire loan and keep it as a fee depending on how much the loan is worth so any loan up to three hundred fifty thousand dollars. The banks get five percent of that money alone between two million ten million dollars. The banks get one percent of that money so for example the parent company of. Ruth's Chris Steak House. Got A ten million dollar loan from the program J. P. Morgan Chase which according to financial records process that loan thought one hundred thousand dollar fee for this one time transaction and remember these loans. Carry no risk for J. P. Morgan or the other banks. It's taxpayer. Money guaranteed by the small business administration and the loans require less work. The government is required unless vetting compared to WANNA bank lending its own money now banks do normally get fees for processing. Sba loans but not in this volume with these dollar amounts were over a two week period. And you've been looking into it in the dollar amount that you've found as I said is a ten billion dollars have gone to bank so far. Yes bring you break down. The value of the loans and use the formula government established is adds up to more than ten billion dollars in fees that went to the banks just in the past two weeks. So what are the banks saying banks saying? Well look. We're doing our job. We're supposed to get paid. So we reached out to some of the biggest banks involved in the program including PNC JP P. Morgan Bank of America. Some said they have to pay for thousands of employees that are working twelve eighteen hour days to get the loans push through and are now preparing or hoping for Congress to authorize another round. They said while betting might not be as thorough as it would be a regular bank loan. There is still significant document take like document. Collection Review Wells. Fargo says it's going to donate its money to charity but it was required to do that. As part of a government agreement falling problems bank had in two thousand eighteen. None of the other banks have said they intend to follow suit. So there's a really interesting question here. Which is that you know. Thousands of small businesses said. They were shut out. They couldn't get loans. Is there a reason to think that they didn't get loans? Because the banks knew they could make more in fees if they just worked with clients with really really large loans there are currently five class action lawsuits in California and New York alleging. Just that and the data does suggest more large loans were process before smaller loans but bank say that is simply not true. J. P. Morgan for one says they had different offices handling different loan sizes and there were simply fewer large loans so they were able to get through more them.
Whats behind Jeff Bezos $10 billion climate plan?
"Jeff as pledges ten billion dollars toward climate solutions. We have questions from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying digital economy. I'm Ali would. We don't have many details yet on the basis Earth Fund the ten billion dollars that Jeff Bezos pledged last week to address climate change but it is by far the largest philanthropic commitment that isn't from government and other investors in climate tech and solutions will tell you that while we need. Climate policies will and unity. We also need a whole lot of money. Jayco is managing director of the private equity firm. The Light Smith Group which focuses on adaptation technology and. I asked him where this ten billion dollars fits in the landscape of climate investment. Yeah so ten. Billion IS A big number. How you apply. Ten billion can dramatically change the scale capital. That actually is moved As a result. So there's a few initiatives like the Rockefeller Foundation's and Macarthur Foundation's focus on something. Catalytic capital where small amounts of concessional investment or even grant funding Can reduce the potential or perceived risk for commercial investors and encourage them in much larger scale to come in two different new investment strategies. They're this announcement was met with a lot of skepticism. And a lot of you know sort of Monday morning quarterbacking other things that Jeff bezos could do or should be doing. Do you think that's fair? I'm an all of kind of guy and so I think right now. If you really take the climate change problem seriously and I think we all should we face an enormous and potentially existential challenge to The way that life Operates here so I applaud this commitment and the scale of it is something is designed to signal that kind of seriousness. Would I think would be great? Would be to use it not simply just to double down on everything that we have now but to be thoughtful about how could mobilize even more funding. How could actually support targeted kinds of innovation? How could actually particularly support? I think The disadvantaged populations in developing countries out to. They're really going to be to the chin. Here I WANNA ask you about priority setting. What I'm curious about is whether this amount of money by it's sort of Sheer Hampton weight has the potential to create almost like a Softbank Effects. And so what? If as I said I'm going to use this fund for cricket meal would then a bunch of other things get neglected and cricket meal would take off if I could wave a magic one with ten billion? I would say that it should be done over a number of different years and then you should pick a variety of strategies where maybe half of it you double down on everything. That's working best right now just accelerated and then I would take a bunch of it and try to think about exactly what you're talking about. Which are are there one or two really important? Longshot ideas or longshot areas or areas of really important focus where this could have a dramatically important effect. Jayco is managing director of the Private Equity Investment Firm. The Light Smith Group BEZOS and Amazon. Haven't given any more information about how the Earth Fund will work but Bazo said on Instagram. That he expects to start making donations this
Climate activist's award money used to create foundation
"How much is ten billion dollars to? Bezos depends on the Matthew I mean. Jeff Bezos with a net worth of one hundred thirty billion dollars is making one of the largest charitable gifts ever ten billion dollars to combat climate. Change SOUNDS PRETTY GOOD. But it's about eight percent of his net worth which obviously raises the possibility that he could be doing a lot more. Okay so why is this news? So it's news because it's GonNa make tremendous impact in the world of climate change for good or for evil you know suddenly Jeff Bezos. Who is an unelected for? Largely unaccountable to the public person with a ton of money is giving the world is money and also means. He's giving the rolled his thoughts on how to address climate. Change that the scientists and activists that Jeff bezos decides to fund will have enormous influence on the countries in the world response to climate change. Maybe that's good. Maybe that's bad but ultimately be living in the world that Jeff bezos wants to design. If we aren't already that's a really interesting idea which kind of makes me wonder. Do we actually know to what kind of projects this money is going. Is he going to have an active hand? In deciding what science experiment gets funded. And what doesn't I think it's a great question. Details are still pretty scarce. He said he's funding scientists activists. And NGOs this was basically a two paragraph post on instagram. So that should give you a sense of the amount of detail that we've had Listener Shannon O. S. Amazon for more information and they've been very stingy about giving more information at this time. Is there anything in his donation? History that can help us digest. This money will be used. So Jeff bezos has done this before about two years ago year and a half ago. He said he was a bunch of money. Tech anti-homelessness initiatives and he set up a board of experts. People were pretty well regarded in the homelessness work. And bezos basically took the recommendations and actually we recorded story about visas unusual approach to grant making where rather than putting strict rules on how the money's spent and requiring applicants to jump through tons of hoops. Jeff bezos basically gave the money instead do want with it and was pretty extraordinary no-strings-attached approach to philanthropy and if passes prologue. That should be here. That's interesting because when it comes to science grants there are huge amounts of restrictions. Right they also tend to have to release plan out exactly how they're going to use the money and I could imagine that being quite liberating for some scientists and some NGOs to not have those kinds of restrictions then again I can also imagine that money being misused in a number of ways without those kinds of restrictions. It's certainly a risk in the philanthropy world. There's been this trend toward more strings. Attached which probably is exemplified by DIFFERENT SEATTLE BILLIONAIRE BILL GATES. And there's been a backlash brewing in the big world for a couple years about. Why are these donors making us fill? All these forms and these different quarterly reports in one donor wants this metric and other donor wants that metric. I talked with a lot of these non-profit heads that received money from basis late last year and they describe it as liberating but you're right. The risk is if there is massive abuse. Which does happen in some isolated instances lampy world will? Jeff bezos. Notice that the other. Nice thing about this. Is that often times smaller? Ngos or smaller labs. Don't really have the resources to provide the kind of information that these larger grants need even though they might be doing amazing science or amazing work in climate change world. If that kind of information is no longer required I could also imagine a world where different groups are getting the money instead of having the same groups. Get the money over and over and over again because they have the ability to provide this information exactly but again we have details on. Who's on this advisory board? If one leaving exist I've asked Amazon. Who's head of the program? They say we have no details to share at this current time details here are very scarce and it makes you kind of question. If the details aren't ready to be announced why even announced that commitment in the first place right which brings me to my next big question which is why is he making this announcement now doing no. We don't I mean basis has been under significant pressure from Amazon employees to do more about the climate crisis and more broadly basis personally is under significant pressure to be a bigger philanthropist. Someone who is the world's wealthiest person he's not signed the giving pledge which is a popular promise by many of the world's wealthiest people to give away half their money before they die and basis for a long time as made very very small charitable gifts. You sort of described.
