Today that company is called ever granted. investors are betting china's government wouldn't bail it out in the first twenty minutes of trading here. The dow is down four hundred seventeen points one point two percent. The s&p is down one point. Four percent the nasdaq is down. One point six percent just checked london. It's down one point three percent. Now let's check in live with economist. Julia coronado at macropolicy perspectives. Hi there good morning it to bring it up but when wall street giant lehman brothers did not get bailed out in two thousand eight. It changed the world. Is this shaping up to be china's version of that. I don't think that lehman brothers is the right comparison. Most of the investors are in china. So it's not a global event It is very contained within china. And we know that. The chinese government has the wherewithal to step in. It's just trying to decide to draw the line. A little further from where it usually does to discourage speculation in the real estate industry and there's also a game of chicken in washington over whether to prevent a us default by raising the upper limit on government borrowing. Yes that's definitely adding to the concerns and not just the debt limit issue but also. The fiscal packages are in peril. This morning And so there's a real possibility that we could end up with nothing and a debt ceiling crisis not the base case but a meaningful likelihood. That's probably adding to the mix of worries this morning right one of those mondays. Julia coronado economists. She's the founder of macropolicy perspectives. Thank you so much.

Recruitment school districts nationwide are offering more pay and bonuses. Still talk says last week. Her district was short hundred. Fourteen substitutes and front desk staff even security guards have been asked to fill in. We're pretty desperate some skulls. She says the labor shortage doesn't help even if school districts can offer substitutes more pay. There are many many other job options out there. I'm amanda feature for marketplace.

"Bambi dot com slash market. We are now on the third round of the advanced child tax credit. These are the monthly payments of up to three hundred dollars per child. The government started paying out in july. The most recent round just hit bank accounts this week and the program is set to expire in december but a new national survey suggests that some low income families may not actually be receiving this money. Marketplace's amanda peach has more low income families might not get the advance child tax credit. If they're not required to submit a tax return jacob golden is an economist and law professor at stanford. Generally people have to file a tax return for the irs. To know their information the center on budget and policy priorities says roughly four million children and their families might be missing out on the payments for that reason families can still get the credit by signing up online. Ashley burnside with the center for law and social policy says the number of households getting payments each month is going up which means that herons are signing up on more. Parents are getting reached as time goes on. There might be an easier way going forward. Jacob golden says the irs could use information from other safety net programs and use that data to automatically enroll people in the child tax credit. Looks like they're eligible to get it. Congress is currently taking that up in the budget bill as well as the future of the child tax credit more. Broadly i'm amanda feature for marketplace. Today marks forty three years since the signing of the camp david accords when egypt and israel agreed to a framework for peace. That piece though has been a cold one. Economic relations between the two countries exist but are limited economic relations with the us on the other hand have grown. The us agreed to provide billions of dollars in aid to both egypt and israel as part of the agreement and that continues today for more on the legacy of these accords were joined by ambassador. Martin indyk distinguished fellow at the council on foreign relations. He also served as the us special envoy for israeli palestinian negotiations. Good morning ambassador could morning. As part of the camp david accords the us agreed to pay both israel and egypt billions in aid each year. How important was that. I mean did the. Us have to purchase piece in a sense. And is that going to be part of the formula. Israel and palestinians ever reached agreement that Looked at from one lens Could be seen as buying the pace but it was a critical way of underwriting. The risks that israel egypt Taking at it's now become kind of standard. Israeli economy is has really Ground to the point where it could probably pay for itself but it's become so intertwined That you have a situation in which all of that three point. Eight billion dollars is spent in the united states on acquiring The weapons of that Is the united states. Provides israel is proud of maintaining the to power in the region. It's in a sense. Buying pace in subsidizing the american military industrial complex but the overall effect. And i think this is what people should bear in mind is that it has stabilized a very volatile region palestinian representatives. Were not at camp. David and jimmy carter later wrote the peace with egypt. Essentially removed an incentive for peace between israel and the palestinians. How do you see the legacy of camp david. And other agreements that did not include palestinians as they relate to statehood and economic independence for palestinians. Yes well that's the very disappointing part of the peace process that it didn't elite in the end to comprehensive peace between israel and all of its arab neighbors including the palestinians but significant progress was made with the palestinians not originally as a result of camp david but over time and with egypt help that produced the oslo accords which provided for palestinian self rule in forty percent of the west bank and then israel withdraw from gaza. Hamas have taken it over but the economic story has been a pretty dismal one. United states has been providing aid with the exception of the trump years to the palestinian authority. And that has essentially been helping to keep the palestinian economy on on life. Support the economic Relationship necessarily depends on ending the conflict. Ambassador martin indyk thank you so much. You're very welcome. Thanks for having me besser. Nick also has a new book coming out next month. Master of the game henry kissinger in the art middle east diplomacy in new york. I'm sabrina sure.

Toyota had managed to avoid the fate of its rivals who've cut production off and on due to a lack of auto grade semiconductor chips that's been caused by pandemic disruptions and a fire at a chip-making factory earlier this year but toyota had a stockpile of chips thanks to a continuity plan created after the big twenty eleven earthquake in japan. Now the company says it starting to feel the chip shortage to it will cut september production at more than a dozen factories in all the cut will total about three hundred sixty thousand vehicles.

"And a whole new season is out. Now million zillion dollars make more sense. Check it out. Well well well. Compromise is possible. We'll look at what that trillion dollar infrastructure bill means for coping with climate change from american public media. This is marketplace in avon colorado. I made me scott in kai ryssdal. It is tuesday the tenth of august. Good to have you with us. The bipartisan infrastructure package. The senate passed today. Now goes to the house in its current form. The bill directs billions of dollars to address. Climate change including wildfire prevention and resilience. Last year was a record setting year for fires in the us today. More than a hundred large. Active fires are burning mostly in the west with months left to go of peak fire season and as that. Un climate report confirmed yesterday and even hotter future is all but certain marketplaces samantha fields reports. Almost every year now it seems wildfires or setting records just the other day. The dixie fire became the second largest in california history. And the cost of gonna. Just go up over time. A more talking about billions of dollars of lost property and economic activity. Amy myers jaffey is with the climate policy lab at tufts university. She says the actual dollar amounts in the infrastructure bill specifically for wildfire mitigation are relatively small. But it's an important acknowledgement that. This is a major challenge for the united states and we need to address it in a multifaceted way. If the bill passes the house as is the national oceanic and atmospheric administration would get millions of dollars to put toward better fire forecasting. The bill would significantly increase funding for the department of the interior and forest service or a range of activities that can decrease communities risks to wildfires. Laura brush at the nonprofit center for climate and energy solutions says that includes things like restoration prescribed burns and better planning michelman atmospheric scientist at penn state university.

I'm samantha fields for marketplace up next in the senate is the three and a half trillion dollar budget resolution. Democrats unveiled yesterday which unlike the infrastructure bill looks likely to face solid republican opposition. The resolution includes a big expansion of safety net programs including help for families with kids in daycare and universal pre kindergarten for three and four year olds. Most states have some form of publicly funded pre k. but as marketplace's amanda peach or reports universal access would be a big lift for taxpayers for many three or four year olds pre k.

Amanda peach is a reporter with the mountain west news bureau based in Boise. She's twice tried to castrate herself in prison.

We'll good morning to you and to know where we are on this. Now, there was a lot of fighting over whether raping and says, should be included in this, and I believe they are. No, they are no exceptions for rape, incest, and the Bill that an attempt to amend that legislation to allow exemptions were those cases sailed with only four Republicans joining Democrats and seeking that exemption. So this is mainly Republican heralded and move forward, Republican legislatures for the most part that we're talking. Yes. It is sponsored by a publican, while make artillery Collins educator, and the Alabama legislature is overwhelmingly. Republican Democrats, hold only eight seats in the thirty five member Senate, and those on the democrat side with the they were the ones mainly who wanted to include exclusions for rape insist. Correct. They Democrats argue that perhaps, this Bill goes too far even conservative leaning state, like Alabama, so we have the Republicans who are supposed to be against government intrusion going into the private lives of women and choice of but that. We've got mothers as exception those who had died possibly because childbirth, that's the only exception, correct. Right. There's an exception of forward, help health risks to the mother, as well as the smaller exception for, like a lethal, fetal anomalies when it's very clear that India would not survive, then there's still go to governor Kay Ivey. Who is a Republican woman, but is pretty much in favor of this legislation. Her wreck that should at the land on protests today. She said this morning, she will with the Bill, but it should be clear that she is has been consistently on piebald. There's a political career she was asked this morning, about the pencil, legal fees, and she said that those should not think the cost of defending something should not the are protecting the unborn is heard that, quote, getting him Chandler, joining us from Montgomery, Alabama, Alabama based reporter with Associated Press. One more question for you. Can there's a sense in all of this, that, well, they want us to go to the supreme court, and this is true for many states, now that have moved forward on the heartbeat laws, and we'll talk with professor Mary? Ziegler about this in more detail. But is that pretty much the plan that you get the sense of Alabama? Yes. The Bill sponsor is pretty for that. Is that her goal to launch something that may one day, get justices to revisit Roby way should be often? They clear that even if it's into law, this isn't taking fact anytime soon, there's a six month delay, and people on both sides of the issue. Expect it to go to port and be blocked from taking effect as they like legal challenge upward with an ultimate, I on the supreme court. They're going to be a lot of court battles in this and Kim. Chan thank you so much for joining us. Good to have you with us on the foreign program this morning. Compiler an Alabama reporter with the Associated Press and Mary's English professor at Florida State University college of law and author of a number of books, including beyond abortion, Roe v. Wade. And the battle for privacy. And after the lost history of the abortion debate welcome professors, thanks for hunting whether to be. Quite a movement, orchestrated. A footer affect Justice briar just said something about justices have to realize how important precedents is, and that seems to be at least kind of clarion, call about the concern where all this is headed. Let's talk about actually what may be on the court's docket sooner than Alabama or Ohio. Whereas we heard over the news. The ACLU Planned Parenthood is going against his heartbeat law, that was passed and, and has been passed in a number of other states. The court can hear actually Indiana case about family planning that's going to go could go at least pretty soon, couldn't it professors. England smell that out for us. Sure on. So this is a law that dates from Mike Pence's as governor of Indiana, and it has two parts, one part mandates. Lawmakers there called the, the humane disposal of fetal remains so like cremation or burial, another part band of worship for reasons of either the race sex disability of the fetus, and the court has had that law in conference. So, in other words, has been considering hearing that case since January and hasn't really come down either four against hearing it. So we can learn about that relief soon. Another possible candidate is a Alesana law that the court has already blocked from going into effect, and that law bears striking resemblance to one that the court struck down in twenty sixteen. It's Louisiana law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a hospital within thirty miles of their practice. Well, of course, of course, also blocked, restrictive law, and Florida and one in Iowa passed last year. But. These heartbeat laws are going to move forward in a number of Stacey already have in six, and they, there seems to be a fairly well, orchestrated plan here by the pro-life people. Sure. And I think it's worth noting here that there are multiple well, orchestrated plans. And there's actually kind of a strategic division within the anti-abortion movement about the best way to proceed when it comes to the supreme court so hurt. Be bills began in twenty eleven with a group called face to action on led by women Janet full reporter who played a prominent role in ROY Moore's Senate campaign and those laws reflect, I think the point of view of worship Ponant to believe the court is ready to overrule Roe, very quickly, and who also believe that it's worth in their view doing the right thing. Even if the court strikes down a Bill, there's more kind of pragmatist wing of the movement that still believes the court might take a matter of years to be comfortable overturning Roe and would prefer to do it over a series of cases. Probably starting with laws involving later. Portions rather than something like an Alabama Georgia laws, which begin with fertilization, this all in the face of what may be a potential disaster. Particularly in states like, Alabama ninety nine years possibly for physicians who perform an abortion and disaster, as far as healthcare is concerned talk about that. Would you. Yeah. Access to Washington. Alabama is already pretty limited. And they're very few abortions that happen in Alabama, as it is one of the sort of on known health impacts of laws like this is that it abortion pills are now available for women online. And if women take those pills, and suffered complications, they may be afraid to go to the hospital. I think that's true. Even though Alabama legislators have said clearly that they don't think that they're going to punish women. I don't think women are necessarily gonna understand that..
