"A pandering diversion from all of that So let's wrap up this week with a couple of quick ripped from the headlines One of them is cryptocurrencies and stablecoins The prices of those certainly didn't go up this week In fact I saw something like $270 billion worth of market value taken away Do we know anything at the end of the week about cryptocurrency stablecoin that we didn't know at the beginning of the week We've been reminded of something we should have known which is that fear and greed drive financial markets all financial markets and cryptos not immune from that and bank run phenomena whether it's banks whether it's money market funds whether it's repo or whether it's crypto when you don't have backing and you lose confidence you get a big mess And finally Larry at the very end of the week on Friday Elon Musk tweeted on the one hand that he was having some second thoughts about Twitter and then he came back and said no no he's still committed to It's not clear The stock certainly went down came back a little bit but it certainly went down substantially Does this say something larger about what's going with tech right now We saw that the value of so many big tech companies has come down It's possible this is actually having some buyers remorse Elon is I think Elon Musk is I think in some ways the Andrew Carnegie of our time A Titanic innovative driving extraordinarily wealthy figure who when he has leverage uses it and with the changes that Twitter.

"The bill and places it under martial law. What a nightmare. Politicians are concerned republicans. Fear the actions of the carnegie steel company reflect poorly on the party and come back to bite them in the upcoming election but politicians of all stripes realize they have a real problem if workers corporations are literally forming armies to wage battle against each other. What does that say of the government's power or lack thereof. This must be addressed that said the strike fails clean freak plays an odd role in this.

"A war. It's now early. Eighteen ninety two roughly two and a half years since the johnstown flood. Andy is the largest steel producer in the united states his size he's looking to reorganize again and bring all his businesses. Save for it coke under a new umbrella. The carnegie steel company. We're talking about an enterprise with the value of twenty five million seeing profits of five million per year yeah not too shabby. Meanwhile andy's increasingly enjoying being a philanthropist. In new york alone. He's throwing millions into a glamorous new music hall as well as teamed up with the famous banker. J pierpont morgan to create a botanical garden and a massive arena called madison square garden. Okay these aren't straight up charity. But there are some charitable aspects in there and he's playing those up that set he's also doing some straight up charitable stuff like building libraries. Oh does any love gifting. The public libraries. It's part of why many on both sides of the atlantic would be happy to tell you the andy carnegie. Isn't one of those immoral robber barons rather. He's an enlightened industrialist. But it's amazing. How fast perceptions can change about sixty miles west of johnstown pennsylvania just a few miles outside. Pittsburgh is a town of ten thousand called homestead any employees three thousand eight hundred workers in his steel mill here. Seven hundred eighty of whom are skilled workers represented by the most labor union in the steel industry. The amalgamated association. The amalgamated current. three year. Contract is about up and its representatives are feeling good about the upcoming negotiations. It's no secret. How well carnegie steel doing an andy has gone on public record as we well know stating his support for collective bargaining so surely figure this will go smoothly but it doesn't the ascendant chairman under the newly organized company h. Clay frick is digging in his heels. On three items i he says these employees whose pay reflects a sliding scale related to the cost of steel need to accept a new minimum rate of twenty three dollars per tonne rather than their current twenty five dollars. There's no maximum payout and so clarke's if they are open to the benefits of highs they can share more of the burden that comes with the lows second. This contract expiration date needs to move from june thirtieth to december thirty first to better line with the calendar year. Finally a third point with another aspect of pay determined by the mill's output. He says the amalgamated needs to accept a reduction here as well because it's the new technology they've invested in not the workers the has significantly increased output. Well the union reps aren't standing for this. They think this is ridiculous. They're willing to come down to twenty four dollars on the sliding scale but no less as for changing the day they know it has nothing to do with the counter and everything to do with steel sales dropping in the winter. They are moving to the years weakest point just to give carnegie steel the upper hand in the next sit down and ask for output click hitting. These men worked themselves to the bone. He risked their lives in dangerous mills. That's productions up not his new tack so now we are two perspectives. But here's the real kicker fight only relates to three hundred. Twenty five of the amalgamated seven hundred eighty men at the three thousand eight hundred employees homestead mill in other words. It's a small group but things get heated fast. Clay has a three mile fence built to encircle the mill. It has holes supposedly for a lookout but the kind of look more like a pork for rifles. And it's topped with barbed wire. He also rex guard towers equipped with searchlights. What on earth well. The thing is clay's overreacting because a strike a few months ago at the edgar thomson. Mill has spooked. Also wants to show andy he can handle things. Scotsman is a little checked out right now playing in his native homeland. Let's not mince words for all his progressive talk. Andy's given klay pretty much full latitude in these negotiations. But you know if you want the skilled and unskilled workers to set aside their differences which they most definitely have as the first group significantly out earns the ladder turning the mill into some sort of prison slash military. Outpost is a solid way to do it. The impasse negotiations folds right through the contract's expiration. On june thirtieth. Meanwhile clay orders the mill. Closed starts looking to bringing in strikebreakers in response an army of skilled and unskilled steelworker sees the mill but the moustachioed carnegie chairman isn't backing down. Play will build his own army. Just past two a m july sixth eighteen ninety two three hundred pinkerton men clamber into two large barges along the ohio river. Just north of pittsburgh between them. They have three hundred pistols two hundred fifty winchester rifles and more than enough ammo on food to lay siege the soon heading southeast travelling via the local river systems toward the homestead. But as they move in the dark of night labor union century notices them. He telegraphs the mill. Watch the river. Steamer with barges left here an hour and a half later at four. Am the three hundred well-armed pinkerton derive their greeted by an army of five thousand steel men and their families. Some of the workers take shots tugboats pulls the largest toward the dots. But you delete her. Hugh o'donnell tries to avoid a firefight with the boats shouting distance. He calls out on behalf of five thousand men. I beg of you to lead here. At once we the workers in these mills are peaceably inclined. We have not damaged any property. And we do not intend to if you will send a committee with us we will take them through the works and promise them a safe return to their boats but in the name of god and humanity. Don't attend to enter. These works by force. A pinkerton captain jumps onto the dock. He answers we were sent here to take possession of this property. We don't wish blood. But few men don't withdraw. We will note every one of you down and enter in spite of you. You'd better disperse for land. We will but follows. God details all the time isn't it. Who's in a different place. Different time and different people. But i've told you the story before more than once. Further words exchanged there's more posturing and then it happens to guns discharge and yeah you guessed it. We don't know which side fired for. All we do know is the battle has commenced to armies both of whom have more guns than experienced soldiers fire at each other until five pm nine evening. Perhaps we can think they're inexperienced for the relatively low death. Count seven strikers and at least three pinkerton the strikers take the pinkerton prisoners doesn't last long though days later.

"It's dark cloudy morning. may thirty first. Eighteen eighty nine and torrential rainfall is pounding the city of johnstown pennsylvania it began as a drizzle the night before but started coming down hard eleven pm. Still none of this is to unusual for this iron working city of thirty thousand nestled right by the confluence of the little connemara in stoney creek rivers which merged to form the larger conham river. Flooding is a part of life. Johnstown some are getting a bit more nervous about this current storm though as we approach twelve noon water at the corner of main and market streets is about five feet deep yet others still consider this business as usual townsfolk simply. Roll up their carpets. Put their pianos up on chairs to prevent water damage and carry on with their day but if the less concerned are changing their tune. By two o'clock folks start retreating to their homes as all of johnstown not just the lower districts is under at least two and as many as ten feet of water. Unfortunately their houses won't protect many from what is about to come fourteen miles upstream. The southwark dam is about to break here it before they see it. Words failed to do justice but it's terrible indescribable roar and then it hits a wall of water surges through the town. Reverend david beal knows the high ground is their only family bible in hand the white haired clean-shaven man of the cloth urges children in neighbors the lloyd's to get up to the second floor upstairs. Upstairs waters rising around as you climb. Staircase is waist deep in water as reaches the top ignoring the furniture clothing around them. The deals in the lloyd's move up higher still to the attic. David's about to join them gets another surprise. A man on a piece of wood crashes through a second story window shocked. reverend asks. Who are you. Where did you come from the poor disoriented man crooks out one word woodvale. David connect some dots. He realizes the flood carried his unexpected visitor more than a mile upon reaching the attic. The reverend leads the group and prayer and reciting scripture twelve year. Old son looks to him. And says surely papa god will take care of us for. We are his children. The bible of him boy recites from the twenty-third saul. Though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I will fear no evil power with me they rod staff. They comfort me amen. As his son looks to god. The reverend looks out an attic window. The debris of hundreds of homes railroad cars businesses and trees are floating in a sixteen to forty foot deep river worse. David co only watch in horror as waves carry both the living and the dead. The waters hurl. People he knows friends and children right past his attic window and all he can do is sit helplessly hoping his households together words fail to describe the impact of the johnstown flood on the community and the nation the twenty million tons of water became crashing down on the steelmaking town swept away far more than buildings and railroads it ended. Two thousand two hundred and nine lives clara barton aka the angel of the battlefield springs into action. You may remember her from episode sixty three. This former civil war nurse is now the sixty seven year old founder and president of the american red cross setting up in a railroad car site. She directs hundreds of volunteers as they treat the physically mentally wounded distribute food and clothing and even build six two story temporary shelters for the many whose homes the flood carried away. Such relief efforts after a natural disaster are as unprecedented as the floods damage. Clara and her red cross volunteer's or heroes but as the days and weeks pass we don't just have heroes villains. The storm was an active nature. Sure but the damn have held though originally built for a canal. Quickly put out of use. By the railroad's the south fork fishing and hunting club now owns the dam and its company reservoir club and its grounds are getaway for pittsburgh superwealthy to fish boat. Otherwise relax have he been responsible stewards though or did the clubs negligence. Just kill over. Two thousand americans and destroy the future of countless thousands more turns out it's the latter heavily steelworking community of johnstown is enraged to realize this clubs. Carelessness has cost them. The lives of their friends and loved ones. Andrew carnegie is in europe at the time but horrified upon hearing what's happened. He donates sixty five thousand dollars to rebuild the library and more but even a gift equal to more than a million dollars in twenty-first-century currency won't absolve him andy and his partner clay frick number among the club's sixty one members. This puts a stain on the scotsman's reputation. As an industrialist who hasn't lost touch with his humble beginnings cares about the people but if anything can exacerbate this damage to his reputation it's.

Eighteen fifty nine in altoona pennsylvania. While we know. Tom scott will get crushed in later years. Going toe to toe with. John rockefeller today. He still an up and coming employee of the pennsylvania railroad. he's just returned home from philadelphia where his interview. With the pennsylvania's president j edgar thomson resulted in a promotion. Indeed thomas moving up from a railroad general superintendent to vice president this does mean however. The sideburn wearing thick haired. Tom has to move to philadelphia. That leaves a lingering question. What will happen to andy. Carnegie born the son of a struggling handloom weaver and scotland. Andrew carnegie or andy to those close to him immigrated with his penniless family to pittsburgh back in eighteen forty eight when he was twelve years old. It was so broke and he had to get right to work but he quickly moved up from his father's world of textiles into the telegraph game. He excelled here so much. So that when. Tom scott decided he needed his own telegraph and assistant in eighteen fifty three. He offered the gig to the fair featured. Strong job seventeen year. Andy proved more than capable in the years. The followed in fact one time. When tom wasn't around and things got hectic andy even took it upon himself to issue orders in his boss's name in short andrew carnegie has more than shown his worth in after six years of working together. It'll be a real shame for tom. To part with his right hand man in understandably andy's quite nervous what will happen to him and his career if his mentor. Tom has to philly well. Tom's invited young scotsman over to talk about that very thing. Now a barrel chested barely over five foot tall twenty-four-year-old and enters and takes a seat across from tom in the latter's home. Tom tells him about his interview and impending promotion. That will require moving to philadelphia. There will be other changes to tom. Explains that mr. Ethnic lewis will be promoted to replace him. General superintendent of the railroad here. Now tuna andy realizes. His future is up in the air. You listened eagerly as tom continues now about yourself. Do you think you could manage the pittsburgh division. Is he kidding. Pittsburgh is a major division of the railroad. A boomtown with plenty of business. That was tom's job. When the two i met some pretty big shoes to fill. Then andy answers. I think icon. Well mr potts's is to be promoted to the transportation department in philadelphia. And i recommended you to the president as his successor. He agreed to give you a trial. What salary do you think you should have salary. What do i care for salary. I do not want. The salary i walked position is going to go back to the pittsburgh division in your former place you can make my salary just what you please any not. Give me any more than what. I'm getting now. You know. I received fifteen hundred dollars a year. When i was there. Mr potts is receiving eighteen. Hundred i think it would be right to start you at fifteen hundred dollars and after a while if you succeed you'll get the eighteen hundred. Would that be satisfactory. Oh it will. Tom just doubled andy salary. On december first. Eighteen fifty nine young scotsman is officially appointed superintendent of the pennsylvania. Railroad's pittsburgh division not bad for an immigrant whose family has struggled at the bottom of increasingly industrialized textile economy bands. Not done yet. In fact he's just getting started. Unbeknownst to andy his move to pittsburgh is going to put him in exactly the right place.

Eighteen year old. John becomes a co owner of clark. Rockefeller in eighteen fifty-eight the duo's cleveland-based merchant business is enormous success. The nation's coming civil war only make their services all the more necessary as a new york. Born ohio transplant john. A northerner through and through votes republican supports abraham lincoln the union and even abolition. That last one is so important to him. He's even helped. Purchase the freedom to enslaved souls. John claims he wants to fight. Lady report that quote. I wanted to go into the army and do my part close quote. But he doesn't dare risk because newly established business thus the rising business star send substitutes soldiers instead as the war rages however john and his partner are growing interested in a product that seems to be on the rise. It's called oil see. The american civil war is changing the entire landscape of the country. Even the lighting industry. Still well over a decade away from thomas alva- edison's electric light. The nature relies on the north whale oil in the south turpentine to light their lamps and the cost of both has skyrocketed. So americans are turning to new source for lighting their homes at night kerosene he product of refined oil. That burns long and bright. These wartime realities are making kerosene catch on fast. Meanwhile oil itself is also pretty useful to loop up other industrial booms including the railroad hence in eighteen. Sixty five the congressman and future darkhorse president. James garfield rights to a former staffer. I have conversed on the general question of oil with a number of members who are in the business for you know. The fever has assailed. Congress had no mild form oil. Not cotton is king now in the world of commerce. And wouldn't you know it. The oilfields just happen to be booming. Very state this future president in. John d rockefeller call home ohio so as a civil war carries on john and his partner. Maurice take on the ladders brothers. And a chemist named sam andrews to form a new company into the oil business but the moustachioed tall and gangly ohio and isn't worried so much about drilling ever a shrewd businessman. John knows that the real money is found. In refining oil indicator seen petroleum jelly gasoline and other by products the partners set up their own refinery called excelsior oil works. Maurice clark's ill-tempered brothers prove a problem. However and when they claim to want to break up the partnership jack catches them off guard but taking them at their word using an auction to settle the disillusion. The company in march eighteen sixty five recently married john. Gladly outfits. the clark's and with the chemists. Sammy ngos standing by his side. Well john is nothing but ascendant. by december. eighteen sixty five owns to refineries in cleveland. More will soon follow. Is john acquires more and more refineries and with them more and more power over the industry. Others begin to worry. He's creating a monopoly over oil in the united states and with the incorporation of his new company standard oil in eighteen. Seventy well. John is poised to do just that. It's a snowy afternoon. December eighteen seventy one in cleveland. Ohio colonel overpainted sitting in waiting in one of the city's preeminent banks. The colonel has a well to do big shot in the oil industry. Frankly his firm. Clark painting company is only second to john. Rockefellers and the competition has sewn of emnity between them so the only thing more surprising than john asking for a sit down with him. Is that the civil war vet has agreed to it. John walks into the bank if they agreed upon time three. Pm gangly standard oil founder. Explains that he wants to see. The cleveland area oil refineries merge john contends that there are far too many refiners and that's causing overproduction by small-time hacks with inferior product. It's damaging the industry he asserts. Submerging merging is necessary if they are to survive naturally. He has suggested banner for this grand unification his standard oil. There's another element here to the newly formed southern improvement company whilst name makes the southern improvement companies sound noble. It's really an umbrella under which the new york central erie pennsylvania railroad's for ending their squabbles over shipping prices on oil this will set uniform rates on all lines meanwhile the sicu will also jack shipping costs up then provide rebates to select refineries in other words. Yes i see will undercut free market principles by making sure refiners. Not in the club are stuck paying double ship in short. This is an oil slash railroad cartel and john. Rockefeller is armenian inside. Good god big clark. Painting company is does a really wanna go up against this machine asks the colonel if we can agree upon values in terms. Do you want in. The union. Veteran contemplates the situation. He gives a tentative. Yes contingent upon examining john's standard oil ledger books when he sees them later that day. The colonel's jaw drops to the floor standard. Oil's numbers are stunning. He concedes john acquires clark painting company for four hundred thousand dollars. Valuation is quite a stretch. But money isn't the concern. Winning is he gladly agrees and in doing so thirty one year old john rockefeller just became the world's biggest oil refiner nor is john donne between february seventeenth march twenty eighth of the following year eighteen. Seventy two standard oil buys out twenty two cleveland's other twenty six oil companies. This means the world's largest oil refiner also controls over one fourth of all refineries in the united states. now is john picking up distressed companies with generous offers. That's how he tells it. The devout baptists claims to be an angel of mercy for refiners. That would go under anyway. Because of standard oil superiority he overpays then brings the seller on as a standard.

"It's time for us to me. Some of the most powerful figures in the history of the united states and no they are not politicians. Having power through a military or political career is just so passe in the gilded age powers having your own economic kingdom or at least a five-time hence the term. these semi royals. Don't appreciate very much. I'm talking about the robber barons now. We can't meet them all. So i'm choosing to introduce you to two of the most fascinating to tycoons whose wealth could buy all the guild dorning the guilded age john d. rockefeller andrew carnegie will follow their rags-to-riches stories as they takeover entire industries oil and steel respectively and forever changed the american economy and while will save most of the backlash for the episode after this one while also get a taste of that as we recall the great railroad strike of eighteen. Seventy seven and experience up. Close the homestead strike of eighteen ninety two. So let's get started by meeting the man behind standard oil. John d. rockefeller his story begins in the mid nineteenth century. So you know what we have to do rewind. It's the eighteen fifties anytown. Usa probably somewhere in ohio. But i can't see exactly historical records of what's about to happen. Speak in generalities president specifics. But i can't tell you though. Is that a roughly six foot tall. Handsome broad chested blue eyed man is about to make this community his next mark the traveling salesman or herbal doctor as he prefers to call himself as many interesting wears but he really loves to hawk hills and he looks irs he even claims his quote unquote. Madison can cure cancer. I know the irony is especially disturbing given this episode's opening anyhow. He sometimes reels in his victims Customers by making up warning about the potency of his products you might think scares people off. But it's actually quite effective.

Sorry not salesman. He bills himself as dr. William rockefeller the celebrated cancer. Specialist william aka. Big bill or better yet devil. Bill is the quintessential nineteenth century snake. Oil salesmen. what he's doing is perfectly legal in the nineteenth century united states. But the legality of it doesn't make him moral not the bill cares. he's not one for integrity. The man cheats regularly on his devout baptist wife aliza and in eighteen fifty five. The forty two year old salesman becomes a bigamist with his illegal marriage to canadian teenager margaret allen. Neither lies nor margaret. No they are sharing their travelling husband with the other in short. Bill is a confidence man. A con artist and a proud when at that in his mind. This is how the world works and the sooner his children realize that the better case in point a decade back the handsome charismatic con would open his arms to his toddler son. In order to entice the boy forward once the child committed daddy would step away and let the little one face plant on the floor. Basically it was an antitrust fall. The message was don't trust anyone as the child grew bill. Reinforce that explicitly telling him never trust anyone completely. Not even me back child. Is john davison. Rockefeller bills dishonest ways. Place quite a burden on. John to say he comes from an impoverished. Background is a slight overstatement but it is true that his mother never knew how much money her conman husband would or wouldn't provide means you liza. Six kids see lean times and john will be somewhat of a rags-to-riches story thus as the oldest child john helps to carry the household through odd jobs and selling candy.

He tells one of his boyhood friends someday sometime when i'm a man i want to be worth a hundred thousand dollars an going to be to sunday.

It seems his father can't afford to let him finish the last two months of high school. Is this because devil bills. Second secret marriage is tightening up his finances. John's biographer rancher.

"Today we're talking about four hundred percent over four years of coaching with none other than clay clark. And let's just be honest klay because fire nation likes success but they love super success breakdown. What you think the first step to achieving super successes. Well i think the first thing we have to recognize is the the harsh reality that ninety. Six percent of businesses fail according to inc magazine. That's not my opinion. That's magazine will tell you if you look up other statistics you're gonna find eight hundred. Ten small businesses failed forbes. Eight at ten nine hundred ten businesses. Fail dear research tonight folks. Look that up but the first you have to recognize that most people are going to fail by default. So you have to become an intentional person so step one you have to define what success looks like. I mean what does success look like for your faith your family finances your fitness your friendship and your fun and napoleon hill once wrote that a goal is a dream with a deadline napoleon hill the bestselling author of thinking grow rich. You know the personal printers for andrew carnegie. He said that he's a goal is a dream with a deadline. So ask yourself right now. You know i. I have in removing to a forty acre property. Moving to a new building. Moving there i have to ask ourselves what does a successful man cave look like. What does it look like. I'm being serious. I'm telling the listeners out there. This is true a successful man cape books like this three quarters of my beautiful house. My wife has to approve. Of which means that. I will not like it. Because it's going to be boozy transitional and whatever that is but if she's happy i'm happy but then we go to the man cave. This is my family. My man cave has to feel like a dive bar. I have to have rustic. Beat up floors. I've got to have live edge. Would i gotta have a urinal. These are things. That i need jail. These things. i have to have a forty seven foot waterslide but did extends from my waterfall in my backyard. What kind of a successful entrepreneur could possibly do life without a urinal a urinal it's an incredible By the way without having his own forty seven foot waterslide. I'm i'm a forty year old man. I need a forty seven foot waterslide. So but if by default i just met with builders and said well do whatever you think i probably would not have a forty-seven i probably would not have a urinal in my bathroom. My wife would probably not have the existence that she wants. And i would probably not have enough land that i can buy all the yaks llamas and chickens that i want but i want you accent llamas and somebody else listening to says you're sick. You're crazy. well. I might be crazy. I might be a modern billy madison. But the point is ladies and gentlemen you have to define.

"You heard of the book? And his connection. Tio Andrew Carnegie. What is it about? These extraordinary men. That make us Look back and and And see how Mindset how we think Has such Power. In what we do in life and joining us today is the editor. Of No hope Napoleon Hill's think and grow rich. James Whitaker. And James. It is such a pleasure. You know, The story of Napoleon Hill is so fascinating and I just love this story. Welcome to the program. Yeah, thank you so much for having me It's an incredible story. And I think in the time that we're in now we're experiencing so much division and so much negativity that it's more important than ever to have these inspiring stories that remind us that we have everything we need to succeed already within us. Absolutely. And you talk about self discipline. You talk about learning from defeat and the golden rule and explained to everybody. What makes Napoleon Hill so amazing in his life if you could just give us a real quick thumbnail sketch. All the polling Hill and Andrew Carnegie's lives were inextricably linked while they were alive and their legacies inextricably linked as well. Napoleon Hill with the young reporter there was tasked with interviewing Andrew Carnegie who arrived in the US with nothing and basically became one of the wealthiest people in the history of the world, but also one of the biggest philanthropists of old Tong. So Andrew Carnegie's money Has created more than 6000 libraries around the world and on a whole host of other things, And the reason Kana G and Hill is so iconic because none of the wealth they were able to accumulate individually or even their philanthropic activities. It was Maura around the gift that they gave people with the ability to help themselves and I have done that through. Obviously, through the books like thinking Guy Rich, which was published in 1937, My book thinking Driving the Legacy continues these lessons that one came out in 28 teams, and I knew one Andrew Carnegie's mental Donna Ma hot off the presses. That one continues his legacy, too. Wonderful, you know. John Napoleon Hill. Tells many stories. He was a storyteller. And what I love about the stories. I said, you know, people go from having nothing. To all of a sudden. Having it all. Absolutely. I mean these these stories and and lessons of through the believe yeah, and perseverance and You know absolutely yeah, Some of the people that we mentioned in this book people like Jessica Cox, who was the world's first armless pilot, she was born without arms and ended up becoming a pilot. I mean, Incredible story. We've got people like Jim Stovall, who at the age of 18 went totally and permanently blind, and he went on to become the author of 30 best selling books. And the founder of the narrative television network. I mean, the examples included within this book proves that whatever success you want to achieve is absolutely possible. You just need the right plan and the ability to put 1 ft in front of the other. I think that I've been saying right along during this pandemic that this is an opportunity for everyone. To reinvent themselves to find a new voice, too. You look at what's really inside you that has been calling you and you put it on Hold. Now is the time to go out and grab it. Oh, that's such a good It's such a good lesson. I think when the pandemic hit earlier in the year, a lot of people were caught on the back foot, and it was easy to sit there and and complain about what they had or what they didn't have. And if we took that exact same amount of energy that we used to complain about our present circumstances, literally the exact same amount of energy and redirect that towards constructively creating the circumstances that we want. We would stand ourselves with how quickly we would get their companies that have been created in the lost seven months. And individuals who have done some amazing things because I have being proactive. They've got on the front foot and I've thought about one of the opportunities that are created out of this situation and what is in the situation, which is one of the best lessons in learning from defeat. One of the women in our neighborhood. Was making the sweet little bows and she kind of semi retired. And then she said, G. You know, you can't find any decent masks around. So she started making masks and one of the girls in the post office. She gave her the mask and G. Where'd you get that Mass? Cheryl and you know Well, Theresa mated, and that's how it kind of grew and grew and grew. I'm not kidding. It is true. It's a great little story. Yeah, in Los Angeles. Where are they Might. My accent is from Australia originally, But in l A where I live. There's a lot of the street vendors who rather than selling fruit. Now they're selling mosques. And I think they're doing pretty well. So being resourceful enough. Because essentially everyone's worried about job security at the moment, But if you are very clear on audience who you like to help and you're clear on the problems they face and the urgent problems, then all you need to do is get good at creating solutions that solved their most urgent problems, and then you never need to worry about an employer ever again. No, Never. I thinkit's a great time to be an entrepreneur. It's a great time to go out and grab what it is that you want And when you're thinking about how am I going to do it? This is exactly where James Whitaker comes in. Because your your take on the masters of Carnegie and Napoleon are as brilliant and you can pick Pick up any of the books. Your Your new book is out. And, of course, if you want the real story of Napoleon Hill thinking, grow rich, the legacy that's wonderful. That's a wonderful book. I loved that book. By the way, James But.

The Fate of Refugees After World War II

"David NASA joins us. Now from New, York is the author of many books including several biographies, notably, a Pulitzer Prize, finalist Andrew Carnegie as well as the Patriarch, his new book is called the last million Europe's displaced persons from World War Two Cold War David thanks for being here delighted to be with you. So you've written primarily biographies. This is very different book I mean I guess you could say it's a million biographies. Some of them were clearly outlined individual late than others what made you decide to make that transition I. Suppose it historian. What we try to do is correct the record give voice to the voiceless fill in the gaps in our history. And one of the largest gaps I thought was the immediate postwar period after World War Two. You. Know we Americans have come to believe that when the war was over the celebrations began the sun came out to shine and sailor kiss the beautiful woman in Times Square and everybody celebrated got on with their lives to get. That was not the truth as I learned certainly for the millions of refugees who were displaced by the war had no homes to return to after the war or were unwilling to return to their homelands when the war was over, there were millions of. Refugees. Prisoners of war political prisoners concentration camp victims left behind in Germany. On the day in May of Nineteen forty-five. Within weeks those who were able. To walk home to get on a truck to take a plane some road bicycles back to France five to six million had returned but a last million, this subject of my book and the title of my book were left behind in Germany. And he's their story that I tell. I mean, it really is not just a single story obviously and not just a story of all of these individuals but there were so many different kinds of displaced people, different groups, not just in terms of country of origin whether they were from the Baltic states or from Ukraine or were Jews from other parts of Europe were from Germany itself. But also you had this incredible and very confusing mix of collaborators deserters. Survivors of the Holocaust how can you tell that story when there are so many stories even within that last million one of the challenges of this book was to tell the story of individuals tell the story of groups and tell the story of the debate that went on in the united. Nations elsewhere between the nations of the world as to what to do. With these last million were left behind in Germany they came from there there were. Three groups, we can divide them into. The Germans. Understood the to fight the war with six to seven million. Soldiers they were GONNA have to replace those soldiers with laborers with forced labor slave labors from eastern. Europe? Who Work in the minds who work in the factories who work in the fields to replace the soldiers on the eastern? Front. And from the very beginning of the war the Germans literally kidnapped. Millions of eastern Europeans the largest number from Poland and Ukraine. and. They were brought into Germany and remained there when the war was over many of them because they were afraid to go home again, they didn't know what they were GonNa find some were convinced that. The Soviets have been taken over Poland and Ukraine there would be no way for them to resume their lives those the second group they came into Germany. And these from the Baltic states from Latvia Lithuania. Estonia. Many of them came into Germany in nineteen, forty, four, hundred, forty, five at the end of the war because they had collaborated in one way or the other. With the Nazi authorities

"Down the road from the show room not normally the thing that comes in is the long shot the thing nobody ever paid any attention to Andrew Carnegie built one of the greatest railroad systems in America but Andrew Carnegie was no sure thing you started out in the telegraph room worked in a cotton mill impressed enough people to give them enough money and then worked his hands to the bone fingers actually bleeding as he got on the rails to work with his workers at least for a while he built the sure thing but he was a long shot a woman named Debbie fields was a ball girl for the Oakland A.'s and she dabbled on the siding cooking nobody paid any attention to her because frankly her baking wasn't all that good till she stumbled on a recipe that was absolutely fantastic absolutely delicious somebody gave her money and Debbie fields no longer became a ball girl for the Oakland A.'s she became Mrs fields in the cookie business no sure things in life and as we look ahead to Thursday around one of the NFL draft everybody wants to castigate Joe Berle before he's even drafted because he's quarter quote not the sure thing what is the sure thing in life long shot quarterbacks you can find many many many you can find Joe Theismann taken in the fourth round of the seventy one draft by the Notre Dame fighting by the Washington Redskins great career with the Notre Dame fighting Irish spent three years in the Canadian Football League sat on the bench for a while with the Redskins three four years well up in the hall of fame wound up taking the Redskins to a couple of super bowls winning one of them four star was a seventeenth round pick our own Roger Staubach around ten pick by the cowboys in nineteen sixty four after he spent time in the navy even Tom Brady the most oft cited long shot in the history of football round six the one hundred and ninety ninth picks on his draft day Tom Brady may be the goat number one overall quarterbacks have done well they've done poorly for every jamarcus Russell and Sam Bradford and Tim couch it Jeff Georgian Vinny Testaverde you get you lie manning and Troy Aikman and Terry Bradshaw and Peyton manning and John Elway by the way don't put Vinny Testaverde down too much cheese top ten career in the NFL in passing yards so along comes young Joe burrow from Athens county outreach about two and a half hours couldn't make it at Ohio state they really weren't all that interested in what he left well they were a little disappointed but not crushed want to L. issue and of course in the calendar year twenty nineteen absolutely blossom yet there are those that look at Joe burrow and say he's no sure thing Joe burrow number one overall pick what it what is he done besides like twenty nineteen that's a narrative out there and it's a strong narrative and it's a narrative that's reverberating a lot of different places some of which is educated opinion others just come flapping to fill time calling hours not a big Joe burrow fan never has banned only carries not a big Cincinnati Bengals band never has banned don't know if calling cal would you ever been to Cincinnati but I do know he said this on our show Thursday about Berlin the bangles this effect so you know how I think Joe burrows gonna get drafted number one I think he's got I think is a B. plus prospect that he's Tony Romo I I don't think he's as great as everybody saying but I think it's good and I think he would be a very good player if you went to the right organization I don't think you can overcome Cincinnati is that divisions gotten scary good Baltimore's better Pittsburgh's get Big Bang back Cleveland appears to have the right coach and that roster stacked Cincinnati is a total up hill battle and I don't think he's talented enough to overcome dysfunction but but a scout came out and said I thought if he ends up Joe burrow with a pro coach like Joe Brady with a good system and good players he'd be good I mean he has a lot of things I'd want my quarterback but he's not a natural thrower he can't recall but down the field you know you can throw a back shoulder and an unknown covered he's got some anticipation but the ball's wobbling I I really like it but I love it but but I think he's a high risk guide number one in so here's the two things to think about this is what I think about a lot with quarterbacks coming out of college to pros who are they throwing to and what kind of throws are they making someone Vince young who's probably the best high school football player I've ever seen Gola W. to binge on high school he looks like an NFL star in the eighth grade it's absurd he goes to taxes he's unbelievable and it Texas he throws his last year at Texas three thousand yards in twenty six touchdown passes but I go to the U. S. C. Texas game and I said to a friend next to me Chad Scott we were talking about it and a member of one point saying he's not making a full throws the scramble around dumping it off in a tight end he loved you know you've thrown lolly pops down the sideline and I'm like there's no seam routes thirty two there's no over the shoulder corner froze these are not NFL throws he loves his tight end but he wasn't look left look right swivel keep move and make a big deal none of it and I was never a big fan of the college of in shell and then there's Tim Tebow who comes out later I didn't like him table I saw Tim table play live I thought ten people Tim TiVo his numbers all all let me read these last two years of Florida fifty six hundred yards fifty one touchdowns in nine picks I watched him play he wasn't making NFL throws a lot of drag route urban Meyer's as coach they're scheming guys open lolly pop deep throws to wide open guys it's not that he wasn't good but he wasn't making NFL throws Joe burrow is drawing two unbelievable players and he's not making in a muddy pocket these over the top thirty four yard sideline throws over this guy under that guy I don't see that lives your line who is one of the smartest guys who talked about players his dad coached in the NFL is a former NFL scout Gil Brandt by the way yesterday who's worked in the NFL or or alongside the NFL forever said he's a souped up Andy Dalton I don't think that's inaccurate and this is what lancer line says about him every player has flaws right now I think the one thing with the world that you want to take a look at this is throws that he had troubles with in two thousand eighteen that's why you got a look at that eighteen tape no it's really not good but when you look at nineteen I found an issue and I was looking at the quadrants of the field to see where it's a super accurate quarterback where does he have any flaws and what I found was when you look at intermediate throws outside the numbers he was twenty one of forty three with five touchdowns and four interceptions when you go back and look at the same throws in two thousand eighteen it was the same issue and what happens is he's a quarterback that the pros with tremendous anticipation and accuracy much better this year than last year but it's the same issue he has a below average arm by NFL standards that's my knock you didn't have a gun I think Jared Goff got a better arm I think it's I'm not sure it's as good as Matt Ryan I'm really not and I think he's athletic and a good kid but to go to Cincinnati and overcome that each inmate dysfunction inside the franchise I don't think you can do it in a dysfunction inside the franchise the narrative that's out there they ruined quarterbacks here the narrative that's out there although I ask you a quarterbacks were ruined here at Kelly Smith could play anywhere it was a bad draft picks David Klingler same thing they never really gave Clinger chance input people around to help him win and with regards to Smith you're old enough to remember this you've been around guy wasn't a leader Klingler wasn't a leader they ruin Palmer Palmer blew his knee out unfortunately in that playoff game against the Steelers and they just after that just kinda wallowed Pittsburgh became the definitive team in that division Baltimore got better Cincinnati drafting good players but not good enough to compete in that division so I suppose you could look at Palmer and the way it disintegrated here towards the end and say okay well there is the example of rowing a quarterback I happen to believe that Palmer did a pretty good job of it himself are we forgetting all of those picks six passes he threw late in his time here in Cincinnati they didn't ruin Dalton Dalton's career wasn't really dear dog to play for a lot of teams teams are trading for Andy Dalton because they still believe the bagels are simply going to release him not knowing of course that Mike brown doesn't work that way didn't work that way with Palmer held out for trade that turned out to be pretty darn good for a trade for Cincinnati but the narrative goes on and on and on look at the history of bangles in drafting first round quarterbacks it's not great they had great cook great cook could have been the greatest quarterback of his generation but he blew his shoulder out and blew it out at a time when medicine wasn't quite up to where it is right now and because of that his shoulder wasn't healed was it operated on wasn't healed as quickly and as good as it could be in this day and age Jack Thompson was the overthrow and Simone Clinger came in here is a run and shoot quarterback in the Bengals tried to make a pocket passer didn't work a Kelly Smith as I said was just a bus in a quarterback class that had three quarterbacks he was number three and he couldn't play anywhere else but here and then of course there was Palmer so along comes borough to this in a dysfunctional Bengals organization as you just heard described well again that's a narrative that's out there here's another narrative that's out there this is Mel Kuiper teeing off this week on ESPN about those who want to tee off on the Cincinnati Bengals listen I'm disgusted by a grainy it makes me sick and I've been screaming about this for months I hear this garbage all over everyone with this view about the bangles and it's a horrible place to go at all for you got no chance for a quarterback that success what do you dream and you'll just throw out inaccurate information five but it it makes me sick the eighty one eighty eight may be too long ago but they wanted eighty one with Kenny Anderson eighty eight with boomer size that's too before.

T-Mobile-Sprint merger gains Justice Department OK thanks to Dish

"Think the big story of the week was the t. mobile sprint merger is mostly okay i'll say fully full speed ahead it's not a go yet but the f._c._c. <hes> said okay the department of justice us department of justice said okay now all that remains is some couple dozen states attorneys general who had been suing to prevent the merger saying oh man we need for cell phone companies i you know i kind of liked what the d._o._j. did i feel like i would bet that the attorneys general drop their suits if not this is is going to really drag out because the trials not till september could even be december because of these new information that might get the lay and this could go on and on what we have is one phone company sprint that's just dying just really struggling another company t mobile that has through better marketing i think in a and just clever strategy thanks to their c._e._o. john ledger and and others i guess <hes> put together a darn fine cell phone company and i'm a customer of course i'm a customer of all of them but i liked him mobile i think they've done a good job sprint recently got backing from japan's softbank that means at least have some money money t. mobile's backed by deutsche telekom the german telecommunications company but with the merger they will become a pretty much the same size as horizon a._t. and t. you know within a hair's breadth each other we'll have three very big it companies and of course the problem is when you're small you know when you have ten million customers you just do it everything again to get eleven million customers when you have one hundred million customers you just try to hold on let's just keep those customers and i'm quoting here a guy named charlie ergen chai i have a lot of respect for charlie ergen and interesting fellow who is a big part of this deal he doesn't work at t. mobile he doesn't work at sprint he was for a long time a professional poker player who was an analyst and <hes> for frito lay counting potato chips in nineteen eighty he actually was such a good poker player he was ben and blackjack was he was banned by some las vegas casinos said you can't you can't come here count our cards how dare you charlie sm- in other words it's smart guy and also go-getter right you know you gotta have some ambition mission to do that in nineteen eighty he <hes> he left his job at frito lay the tip of chip manufacturer got together with his buddy pulled together about sixty thousand dollars and <hes> <hes> his buddy his buddy i've also met met both of them <hes> jim di franco another poker player by the way they pooled their money sixty thousand dollars and and started a business selling the the ten ten foot satellite the satellite dishes in denver this is nineteen eighty eventually he built a company that sold the littler dishes the you know the hubcap sized dishes and took on cable tv create a little company you might know as dish the dish network twelve million customers he is now worth his sixty thousand dollar investment in nineteen eddie now worth nine billion dollars nine billion dollars so he's done all right he also owns echostar satellite company and <hes> he has been over the last decade collecting <hes> something that's very valuable almost as good as poker chips or gold he's been collecting wireless spectrum frequencies sometimes to the dismay of the federal communications nations commission and the other carriers because he's not using them he's sitting on him he's been a smart like a fox collecting these frequencies when t. mobile was told by the department of justice look this merger is not going to happen unless you somehow do something to create a fourth carrier you divest yourself of boost mobile your other your other <hes> little mobile companies and do something to make a big carrier metro p._c._s. yes so when that happened john ledger the c._e._o. of t. mobile place to call to charlie ergen the c._e._o. of dish said we should talk and that's how the dish became a big player in all of this in fact the f._c._c. is demanding that they start a fourth cellular company in the united states and they get it up and running fast but here's where charlie was smart he got all those frequencies some really juicy ones didn't do anything still hasn't done anything with them he was waiting he said why build a lt networker four g. network when you're just gonna have to scrap everything and build a five g. network a few years later he was waiting waiting for five g. the next generation of cell phone communications and you know sometimes it's better not to have existing infrastructure to start from scratch sometimes you get an advantage doing that so it's gonna be interesting testing he will be dish the new dish i don't know if they'll call it dish but i hope they don't because it's a terrible name it's fine if you have a satellite dish but it doesn't make any sense for his cell phone carrier we'll be <hes> one hundred percent five g. they're not i can do l. t. e. or three g or even old style phone service or text it'll be a self service company in that sense you know that you can use your cell phone with it but it will all be on the five g. network he this is he's all in in poker terms he's pushed his chips to the center of the table and said because it's going to cost him big ten billion dollars at least to roll out this network at least and you know how that is when they say numbers like like that you know it goes up this will initially use t. mobile's towers and so forth that was part of the deal to they will <hes> they're kind of start off that way charlie says dish can offer on demand pricing something to sell carriers don't charging less in the middle of the night he's gonna target businesses like auto makers who are putting sell connections in their cars right all the new cars they have sell connections they'll have five g connections charlie says we're going to get someplace in three years it took the other guys ten i think this is exciting and interesting and it could charlie's known man this guy's a character i was <hes> years ago i did he he has a show on dish called charlie chat met the guy went out to a studio in denver did charlie chen was was impressed by he's he's which call a maverick he's one of those guys and we are in a way blessed i think we're surrounded by interesting creative business types maybe in the you know the robber barons of the turn of the last century the john d rockefeller's the andrew carnegie's are kinda like that i'm thinking elon musk jeff bezos and now charlie ergen these guys who are willing to risk it all on a crazy idea to do something amazing ilan's risk plan besides tesla but he also has space x he wants to go to mars but the thing i think he's doing this the most interesting is his thing starlink they're going to launch more than ten i think twelve thousand satellites low-earth orbit satellites to provide high speed gigabit internet access to every square inch of the planet in five years wow it's kind of that's the kind of big thinking i think that could change the world i i think charlie has something like that in mind to fascinating to watch you know and it's his chips he's risking not ours

"Yeah. You ever listen to zig Ziglar I used to listen to all the time. Did you do the Andrew Carnegie court? I did you do all those win friends and influence people. Yeah. It was great. I think it's the number two. Number one bestselling paperback of all time, I did tell matches years ago. That's how I learned to be public speaker. Is that right? Yeah. What year? Did you do that way back in the before I moved to Houston seventy nine hundred eighty how many how often do you have your entire sales team in a meeting? About once every four or five months. That's it. Yeah. And so how that meeting go? We talk about what's good. What's bad how to improve? And how to listen better to the customers. And you know, we talk more about merchandising. Now, you know, we're we're trying to become the only furniture store in the country. That's hundred percent made an American that's top trick. You're trying to make furniture there on site. We are trying to make a solid wood furniture there on site. How hard is that? It's been difficult. We haven't found a good. Woodworkers yet. But we will my voice is fading out as I have pneumonia here. But do you have an estimation of how many fingers are acceptable to lose per year? Zero really zero. It's at robotic machines had to have somebody programming put the French cuts it up. Really? Yeah. And people are going to have to watch it. Yeah. It'd be a wash they love they watch it. Now, they love watching the furniture being made a Benchley we'd like to have half the store being manufacturing where they can watch the furniture being made right in front of him. Where'd you can choose on that? What's that? You can't Amazon that right? Weren't you doing has has ended on affected your business? Oh, yeah. Really? Yeah. What way? People by a lot lot. Lot of inexpensive furniture on Amazon Wayfair. They do a good job. They're convenient. You know, they pushed the button at home in their underwear and they get delivered. So. Us is brick and mortar retailers have to make it exciting experience for the customers. Otherwise, they won't come out. You still have the blimpy. Nom. We don't I'm going to have the Michael berry barbecue restaurant. That'd be a nice idea. It would be you know, what I think might be better though, to be completely honest. I love to do barbecue. There is tacos. I think taco because you want something people can walk around with barbecue. You gotta sit down you really want them to keep looking. So we'll bring in the the greatest minds in tacos. Russell Bara dominate Lorenzo. We'll bring them in in little handheld tacos street taco don't you like a street? Top of sounds good to me put it out front. That'd be good. Get that smell going people driving by that'd be nice. Mcginn sell tacos all the way up to midnight. How many delivery guys you have about one hundred really we have our own delivery guys. One of the big complaints. People have is that they get a contract delivery service delivering their furniture in the driver's. Okay. But they pick up the other guy, the Home Depot parking lot. And it's a little scary. Really? Yeah. So we have our own employees because you wanna be able to stand behind Brumby a stand behind. We don't want the employees using the customers bathroom going in the kitchen and grabbing a beer in the refrigerator, those type of things happen all the time. Ooh. Gosh. And that's a reflection on you are the drivers inside the house. He's learning at eighteen year old daughter, not good. Ooh. Better than if he's leaving at the fourteen year old daughter. Football player. Yes, not good. How many salesman d how about sixty sixty five hundred drivers underdrive operations guys in the warehouse. Probably another seventy or eighty so you got two hundred fifty employees. That's a lotta mouths to feed. It is a lot of responsibility. And then nothing like making payroll makes you want to get out of bed in the morning. Let me tell you something we have. We are very small operation compared to you. I think we have fifty three people. And when I look at payroll. I mean, that's just about the time. We get more than zero in the Bank account. And then bookkeeper says now, look you're gonna have to put some money from your account in there because on Thursday payroll, his, oh, man, I hadn't even thought about that. Well, thing it feels like, you know, I'm an employee here. So every two weeks, I get my check. I can't wait to go on there. And see what my check is. Because it fluctuates, right? I go online. Check was deposited. I'm so thrilled and in two more weeks, and it comes again, but the exact opposite for the RTC is like man, we just got our head above water. And boom here comes to get knocked back down. Again, payrolls do again need to have Pat green concert every week. That would be a good deal. How big is your back office? I know your son runs that. Right. He runs the internet opposites. It's about twice the size your office. Here is that good or bad? It's not a bad studio. You've been in this very nice now we want we want to have people out front with the customer. So we have a few guys guys and ladies doing internet stuff in phone room in the back. But most everybody else in front of the customers all the time. That's we're at the end of the day. We're in the custom business. We don't wanna bureaucracy. We won't we wanna company that's facing the customers and the customers this frog. We don't say jump. We say how high. Do you? When you look back at furniture, if instead of doing furniture, you had gone into our mattresses if you'd gone into retail in another field looking back what you know. Now. What would it have been radio? Yes, sir. I like the medium. I'm I'm old school. I could medium, and then, you know, the the new medium that come out the internet and YouTube, and all these other things that are exciting to it's a whole new world out there it is. And it's very exciting. You know, there's people that do what I do that are scared to death of these podcasts because now anybody can have a radio show. And my point is if you're good at what you do. They will always be a market for your product. If you're not good at what you do. You should be frightened. Because if the only reason you have an audience is because you get to be on that big fifty thousand watt stick then you don't deserve an audience right now. It's it's leveled it's like anybody can publish a book anybody do a radio show. It's the content that matters. It is the content content is king. And that is true. And I don't care what it is. If it's on Netflix, Amazon, the radio local TV cable you've name it gave a good product. They'll find you. And that's what we we pound on all the time with that made in America, South of finding better quality products that are in now, more and more. We're trying to find products that are made in Houston. So.

The the very beginning of the industrial revolution. And who built or titans of their industries at the time. And you there you gain a lot of insights into how capitalism worked back then versus how it works now. And what these men did in order to maintain maintain superiority in their in their niches using both government and private sector means. And then also some of the things that they were wrongly accused of doing that as history shines a light on it. You realize they really weren't as bad as everybody made them out to be so one of the things that JD Rockefeller started doing when he started his oil empire was that he would go around, and he would sell oil cheaper than anybody else because he figured out that if he owned everything the tire distribution line, he could cut his costs down. He would do things like go to the barrel makers, and he would say, okay, you're putting this barrel of oil together. How many? Drops of metal of what do you call drops of when you what was solder. Do you put around the ring of the barrel, and the guy would say, well, we use fourteen you know, solder drops to seal this barrel up he said, well, what have you used thirteen? And so they would go around they try with thirteen the barrel held together. And he said, well, what if you use twelve and he just had them keep doing that until the barrel stopped functioning it started leaking? And then he said, okay, I think the thing was like seven or eight drops of of solder was what held this barrel together. Well, when you're shipping tens of thousands or.
