Michael Eric Dyson Explains Why 'Economic Recovery Should Be Targeted Toward Have Nots'

"Talk about wealth and income inequality disproportionately affecting people of color and should the economic recovery measures be targeted therefore to these people and if so, how can that be the tough one? Yeah. Well, yeah, they definitely need to be targeted toward the less, you know fortunate and the Have Nots versus to have God's they're all kind of see but dead. You know, you got to get beyond the obsession with those socialism doctor King said we got socialism for the rich and free enterprise for the poor, right the ones who are really getting socialism and communism that goes up at the top who are Distributing their cash among themselves. There are many redistributive mechanisms to those who are beneath. Look at our housing policies. If if housing is the entree in the middle class, that's a huge mechanism of economic wealth that can be measured and we can do stuff about opening up housing markets making them more Ecuador standing with the Supreme Court saying that certain practices is not just a the consequence of it used to be I mean the intent like if you had intent to harm somebody with housing or be prejudiced thoughts, okay, you were wrong, but if the consequence was that they were still harmed. So what the Supreme Court said? No, you gotta look at consequences. Well, so outcomes are as just important just as important job. As intent that's one way another way of these educational disparities. If there is a correlation roughly hewn between what kind of education you have and what kind of money you make then it would behoove us to enforce certain educational practices that pay attention to the least of these and if the tax base is the determinant for education and so many Iraq owes then the government which has been a beneficiary of and it you know of a kind of you know, Jim Crow approach an apartheid racially speaking in the law passed to you know, fill its coffers for white education vs. Black one then we owe some money toward those people who are at the bottom of the totem pole and then figuring out what kind of jobs and job-training could help black and Indigenous and Latin X people to get higher up on the totem pole. Those are a few things that can be done and stop the voter suppression. That would be Huge thing that now those things get fought in courts, but they can also the Attorney General can have engagement with these issues on local municipalities and finally in terms of leasing, you know, under Obama Eric Holder and then Loretta Lynch, but especially Eric Holder was talking about these consent decrees and looking at these police departments and it's another thing to be done again. So look at them cuz police departments are extracting all kinds of monies. Look at Ferguson, Missouri all kind of money from the local people making their coffers fill while depleting resources for people on the ground. Those are a few ways and few things we can do to make sure that we can Target those monies toward the most vulnerable.

"Are a few things that you look for when you're trying to identify a successful start-up read. So it's generally speaking it can be different patterns, but the simple stuff is all my gosh. This could be a industry transforming company where the time is now sometimes cuz of Technology change sometime cuz the market change other kinds of things that the founder has the enough of the raw knowledge to get moving and as a learner and has that raw kind of grit and adaptability to go through all of the different phases of that these startups go through like for example in my last booklet scaling I kind of described it was five phases of size and the rules change at each phase of Summer. Like how you run the company what management looks like, you know, are you multi-threaded single-threaded and then you can do all of that and then where do you look at relative the competition because one of the really fundamental things off which I just did in my most recent, you know, kind of gray matter podcast and I say was that competition like what is the competition look like is really Central talking to it that that's the sweet and what you look at home then and then that sweet you kind of go. Okay, and then it's Art and Science. You can't just kind of pencil the numbers. It isn't just do a DCS analysis. It's like yeah, I think so.

Emmanuel Acho Expresses Optimism About Systemic Change

"How optimistic are you about this systemic change that we're trying to undertake optimistic and not because I've finally realized that parts are ready to change and that's not so much that I finally realized the hearts are finally ready to change after the murder of George Floyd Andy off. Was as though our white brothers and sisters were like wait a second. Maybe black people haven't been lying this whole time. Maybe there is a problem maybe like this racial Injustice wage and racially-motivated incidents. Maybe it's not just the coincidence. And so I think that the harshness of that tragedy of George Floyd it woke everyone up and now it's just a matter of now that people are awake and now that the intentions are there is there directed C&E intention without direction is meaningless.

Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat Addresses Bank's Risk Management Deficiencies

"Was fined four hundred million dollars earlier this month for lacking adequate risk controls and entered into a consent order with a Federal Reserve should investors be concerned about that. Well, I would say first, you know, we are disappointed that we fall short of our Regulators expectations and as we've said very publicly as an institution, we are fully committed to thoroughly addressing the issues identified in those consent words as part of that. There are four main areas of focus in there around risk management data governance controls and compliance and I think what important what ties these together is, you know, the the the need or desire to continue the modernization of our infrastructure our governance in our process dead. And we have had remediation programs in place. And while we've been making progress against those we're simply not where we need to be and and we acknowledge that and and I would say wow. This is is disappointing. We are committed to addressing the issues and you know continuing to kind of push forward in those areas that we've described. You know, we've already begun making structural changes celebrating our programs and Investments and you know as a firm, I think we're absolutely laser focused on automating processes ensuring accurate data can be assessed quickly and and we're I you know is reproducing management regulatory reports it again, nine months into the crisis, you know, those systems have served us well, but we can certainly make them better.

"If twenty twenty is a year. I the massive movement for racial justice doesn't quite count while perhaps unprecedented in size and scope it owes to a movement that for centuries has sought to write one of our country's foundational wrongs.

"Hello everyone and welcome to influencers. I'm andy serwer and welcome to our guest emmanuel acho who is a former nfl player host of box for one. Speak for yourself and author of the new book uncomfortable conversations with a black man emmanuel great to see you andy eager to be seen. It'd be talking to you my grant. Thank you so You started this off. Conversations uncomfortable conversations with a black man as a youtube show and the mass more than sixty five views from when you started than in june. What were you hoping to achieve when you started that. And why do you think has resonated so widely man question and i was hoping to act as a bridge for racial reconciliation and the went to win a fluent white school from grades. Five through twelve. And i was merced in white culture. But then andy. I got offered a scholarship to play football at the university of texas. And then i go to the nfl. So now i'm immersed in black culture. And he. What i've realized is there's a communication difference between white people white culture and black people black culture because i've been immersed in both cultures. I understand andy. There is a difference and that communication barrier is playing a factor in our racial tension. Right now a huge factor. Sure we all speak english but make no mistake about it. There are differences in ways we communicate and interpret things. But i said you know what andy. I'm going to preemptively answer questions. That i know my white brothers and sisters have but either or too afraid to ask or don't have a black person to ask or black people to ask such is wait a second. How come white people can't say the n. Word but black people can wait a manual but what about black on black crime in chicago. Okay what's this concept of white privilege. But amanda what about reverse racism. Black people get a black history month. White people don't get a white history month okay but isn't affirmative action. Just the same thing like the jim crow laws so i preemptively said you know what andy. Let me answer so many of these questions that are leaving my white brothers and sisters in ignorance and then you turn into this book right here which has been really resonating with people as well and i've been i'm in the midst of it right now and i love the question map because you're right so many people white people are asking those questions right now manual and so. Are you getting the of responses that you hope to people saying. Oh you know now. I do understand an hour now at communicated to you i love that i really am andy. And in the best response got was week. One into the episode was a sweet woman named lin. Seventy three old white woman. She said a man. Dear manual grew up in the south in rural alabama in the forties and fifties. I didn't go to school with any need growth. She said but after watching your episode. I realized my heart's still needs to change. Please don't give up on me yet. I love you my brother and my son. And andy. After i got that email i said wait a second. The hearts are changing. Hearts are turning. This isn't about clicks. this isn't about likes talking about shares this is about influencing this generation and the next generation. So let's write a book which can be passed down from generation to generation and affect the true meaningful change. I don't just want the spoken word. Which sizzle i need the written word which is substantive. That's what will really make a change so the appetite andy has been insatiable. It seems like the more i give people. The more they want emmanuel make the episodes longer. I wish you could expand on this. And so that's how we're going right now. You don't want him seeing white and black people come together but unfortunately it's on one side of political aisle. You're seeing a lot of white people at black lives. Matters protests more than a lot of people anticipated you know in connecticut and michigan and pennsylvania on the other hand you have the proud boys a lot of trump supporters. Who might not see i. I would this still. How can we bring this country together. I would say the first thing. Andy as we. We all have to collectively get out of denial. I said this before to oprah in her. And i were talking. Denial spell d. e. n. i a. l. Don't even know. I am lying and you can't fix the problem. Andy that you don't know exists. So how can we all collectively move. Forward acknowledged problem exists. You mentioned it at the top of this. I'm a sports guy. Let me talk sports with y'all real quick and the nfl the reason that so many people can be of different races. Different religions different backgrounds. Andy and still come together is because they're fighting a common enemy. When i walk out onto the field which is fifty three and a third wide one hundred yards long. I i remember that. Wait a second me and my to my left and my right or fighting a common enemy. So i don't care what my brother looks like. I don't care who my brother worships. Because we're on a goal to beat the opponent in america. Andy we haven't yet realized we're fighting a common enemy of oppression. We're fighting a common enemy of racism. We're fighting a common enemy of systemic injustice and as a result we're bickering with our brothers and sisters to our left in our right instead of realizing. No it's us versus oppression. It's not black versus white. it's not white versus black. It's good versus evil. It's love vs hate you. We can get there. I mean let me let me hold that one percent social media. I mean a lot of people are suggesting that's making the situation. The divisiveness worse. What's your take on that. Social media does two things it can make the divisiveness worse because it gives everyone a platform and they can also hot and so it gives people a platform that but they can also maintain anonymity. And that's the worst part like everyone on social media had put their actual first and last name it'd be a completely different agenda But social media also has some pros again. My my show my concept my book. It wouldn't have occurred without social media. And i know that that has done plenty of good so with social media you have to understand. There's bad but there is also some good in ball. Let's get back to the other question manual. How optimistic are you about this. Systemic change that we're trying to undertake. I'm optimistic andy. Because i finally realized that heart ready to change. And that's not so much that i finally realized the hearts are finally ready to change after the murder of george floyd andy. It was as though our white brothers and sisters were like wait a second. Maybe black people haven't been lying this whole time. Maybe there is a problem. Maybe like this. Racial injustice and racially motivated incidents. Maybe it's not just a coincidence. And so i think the harshness of that tragedy of george floyd it woke everyone up and now it's just a matter of now that people are awake and now that the intentions are there. Is there direction. The andy intention without direction is meaningless. So there's no intention with this book and with my series. I'm trying to get people direction there throughout his presidency. Donald trump has criticized. nfl players. Do you think the perception of the league and his players will shift after donald trump lease office. So good question.

The normal thing is probably not that useful in this time of covid. It is very useful right because but people are sitting watching screens all the time. It's like okay watching another video so record a little video about like. Why are you interested in this job. You know who you're on. Here's my to lincoln profile.

Listen I feel like that's a hard thing for a lot of a lot of young people to feel that that you know whether it's mentors or people look up to results that they really are listening to them and hearing them. and. Then just encouraging them to to believe in themselves, and that's like an obvious on but to to understand the power of their voices. To understand the power of being an individual I think especially in this day and age. With, social media that everyone just wants to fit in and be the same look like the person next to them and get the most followers in lakes in it and something constantly. Saying that it's so much more beautiful and unique to be an individual and into just own that power I mean I feel like it's everything that I've stood for. Entering. Into a world, I was seen as not right just not the right fit not the right body lot. The right skin color in that I've succeeded. I go to Lincoln Center into the Opera Symphony and the Ballet Carnegie Hall as well and the audiences lot me misty. Older people and we've all talked for so many decades about trying to crack through in and make it more appealing. All these art forms appealing to younger people. Have we made any inroads and what can be done there and you think. I mean I guess it was Gosh on how maybe like eight years ago seven eight years ago now that I saw a huge shift at least in the audiences are coming to American ballet theatre's performances near the first performance. I ever did of the firebird at the Metropolitan Opera House New York City was the first time I. Think ever that we had seen the Metropolitan Opera House more than half full of black and Brown people and young people like babies little lay you know three and four year olds are sitting through an entire evening so. I think once you open the door and show people that they can be a part of that. that you start to change the obvious when you make them feel welcome and you feel they feel represented but I think we we have a responsibility to keep it out. It's not just one person that can be does that in it it you know it's something that you have to continue to nurture but I do have faith that it's it's possible but you know it takes more than one person to do.

"A I. Don't think we really think about it. I think my. My sister and I get along extremely well. The reason is pretty simple. You know when you share a room with your siblings till you go to college. You either get along really well. You hate each other thoughts. I'm really that complicated and I. I think for Sonia and I. We have very different skill sets and because of that those skill sets worked very well together and the fact that obviously 'cause we're brother and sister. We trust each other implicitly. But I don't think I could do what she does so I think for me having her as my partner and you know the fact that we started the firm together. As been a godsend I don't think we could have done it without her, so it's been great for me. Hopefully she says the same thing. We'll have to check on. What have you been doing during the quarantine to stay sane to keep yourself going? What patterns of Behavior Changed? What are you doing differently? I think the only big difference is I think you know we. We have a house here in west, so we all came to our house You're sort of working. You'll start your day to eight in the morning and you'll finish. With all the calls you know usually around sort of five try to play tennis every day for a couple of hours. so that's sort of my workout as I look forward to that. We've got a great thing for us is we've got our whole family together? So I? Think that's actually been really nice I think it's time we. I don't think we would have been able to spend. So having everybody together for three months. I think is exceptionally positive There's some negatives, but you gotta bid on each other's nerves. because. You can't really go away, but I think all in all. It's been are extremely positive. And last question mark. This show is called the influencers and I'm wondering if you considered how you'd like to use your influence on the world. I think at the end of the day. Really what we all try to do. You know I know it sounds a little trite, but we you try to make it a better place. I think for me. What I would love to do is. To let people know. This is a great country, and if you work really hard, and that there are a lot of opportunities for you so I know at times, it's really difficult and things look really bleak but you know my views, perseverance and hard work usually wins out, so that would sort of be my message.

"Hello, everyone welcome to influencers I'm Andy Serwer, and welcome to our guest Mark Lazarie. Who is the CEO of Avenue capital and also the CO owner of the Milwaukee Bucks and a member of the national? Finance Committee for Joe Biden Mark Nice to see you. Pleasure, thank you for having me. First of all for those of us who aren't so familiar with avenue. Wanted you talk a little bit about what you guys do there. Sure mainly were global investment firm and we invest Throughout the whole world we manage approximately about ten billion dollars and what we try to do, is you stay at the top of the capital structure and try to invest solely in senior debt or do bilateral deals where we're lending people money on a secure basis so that we end up having all the assets of that company. You guys are known for being. Specialists in distressed opportunities and Wow I'm wondering what the environment is like right now. Can you talk about that a little bit? Sure, the environment, actually pretty good. You've got a lot of companies that are in trouble. part of that is because what you really have in the world today. Is Sort of the has and the have nots what I mean by that that has are the companies who have liquidity who've been able to borrow money and so for them. They they've got the ability to wait this virus out until people come back, the have nots are companies like JC Penney like Kurt a couple days ago, chucky cheese filed for bankruptcy today. Chesapeake energy filed companies that don't have the liquidity so therefore they've got end up filing so that they can end up having a stay and they don't have to pay their debts while they're working out a restructuring so for us today huge amounts of opportunities because of what's going on. And I think even subsequent to Chesapeake. I just saw cirque. Du Soleil across the tape. You see that one. Didn't see that. Company well take a look right after the call. Well thank you so. Of course it's you know a sad thing for for the employees, often cases and you know other investors as well it's it can be a difficult period. I know you said that this might actually be a more interesting time than the great recession, two, thousand, eight, two, thousand nine..

"Her teachers right so he's asked us to come together just as part of a coalition. Because we've been working in the state to think about. What might we do now with education? You know some kids are successfully going online and are keeping up their learning gains. Many many are not in are falling behind and so we need to look out. You know where our teachers in the public school system who are being effective. How're they doing it? How can we help them? Spread their lessons to public school teachers. How can we help? Low income kids have access to broadband to a computer and then to great teaching. There are many great teachers out there but not everybody does go online. I have to say even I struggle some days with all the different platforms right that we're using online these days and so we need to support teachers and they can support one another your husband bill. recently tweeted win. President trump announced. He was freezing funding for. Who does it really rise to the level where you feel? You guys need to respond. Maybe not I shouldn't be asking YOU TO SPEAK FOR BILL. But but does it rise to the level where you guys feel compelled to respond like that bill and I both came out strongly with our voices on purpose in favor of the. Who We know the World Health Organization. It's not perfect but we have worked with them for over twenty years they are the organization that was set up by the after the world word last World War by the United Nations to deal with health around the world and so it makes no sense in the time in a time of crisis to say you're going to pull back on a partner. Yes the would be time later for a post mortem and for some changes and to make things even better but that is the institution we rely on. So we feel that when you're in a crisis and you know a partner is good and robust you stand up for what's right and you stand up for your partners and guess what. Who it has a whole. It's whole member set of the United Nation country. But they stand up for everybody else in the world so of course we're going to stand up for them. That's what's right you mentioned. You founded the foundation twenty years ago and focuses primarily on healthcare which looks prescient. Now I mean you could have done climate change or something else. What made you decide to focus on healthcare? Linda yes so when bill and I founded the foundation we really have this belief we realized as a couple that all lives have equal value all lives and yet the world doesn't treat all lives as equal people. Don't all get to grow up in live that healthy and productive life. So we've always been about the most vulnerable and when we looked at where where people most having trouble around the world living a healthy life so they could go on and educate kids. It is places where there is a lot of poverty and a lot of death because of diseases and so over twenty years. We've built up a knowledge base with many many many partners and scientists inside and outside the foundation of. How do you deal with malaria outside the United States how do you deal with HIV AIDS in these low income settings? How do you look for a vaccine and so that knowledge is now coming to bear? And the many partners we work with and that we have relationship with whether it's industry or academia or scientists in different labs Luckily that is coming to bear now during this time of Covert Action Endeavour. You have as the giving pledge with Warren Buffet. Have you guys look to change the direction? Maybe of that during Corona virus or is that still just ongoing right now well. The point of the giving pledge is to really send a societal message that if you have the type of wealth that has created that you've become a billionaire it really has to do with because of where you've grown up yes and some luck and some skill and so it was getting a billionaires together to sign up and say we're going to give away half our wealth and not a specific 'cause everybody works on their own pieces but to learn and to accelerate our giving we've had several calls now with that group and believe me people are pivoting and changing in their communities. They are making their funding flexible. They're supporting their partners in the community. They're saying we have to fill gaps before the federal money showed up what it shows up and doesn't show up in quite the right ways and then they're starting to think about okay. What else might we do and I've been really impressed with the giving pledge community with how much they are being thoughtful with their partners and saying we have to help our partners and we have to help the most vulnerable in our communities. And we've had numerous ones of them call us and say hey we don't know anything about vaccines but should we be contributing more to vaccines or therapeutic or diagnostics. And so we have ways to help one another do that so they are responding. That's good that's good -solutely they're responding. So let me ask you a little bit about your book and you talk about women leaders and I guess I need to ask you or WanNa ask you which ones impacted you. The most I've had so many women leaders Impact me over the years but I can tell you one that I see right now and that I have worked with Now for many years and that's Chancellor Merckel when I see her consistent leadership over time when I see and you talk to her about how she was underestimated originally in Germany and yet she's a physicist. She grew up in East Germany and she has risen to this role but she has been consistently who she is and when we bill and I talk with her on the phone a couple of weeks ago she is asking all the right questions. She's listening to science. She's listening to her advisors. She's saying what should we do for the world not just for Germany? We're watching her systematically give guidance in Germany and the country back up in a very wise way That is the kind of leadership that to me is smart and is consistent and is compassionate and she is a leader that completely and totally inspires me. Let me ask you a few personal questions as we wrap things up here Melinda what are you and bill and your kids talking about around the dinner table during this time. Well of course every night. We're talking about the news not surprisingly we're talking about the latest Cova data or what we know the kids are bringing points of view but we always are coming around to every night the most vulnerable particularly in our own community You know the kids are kids. Understand that we're lucky that we're not struggling to put a meal on the table. It may not be the best meal right now because mom heats. She doesn't Cook Very Well? But we're not struggling to eat right. And we're not having to get up every morning and think about Who's GonNa Take Care of the kids? And how do I go in and work in the hospital today? So we're talking about stories. We're hearing that. They're hearing from their friends whose families might struggling. We're talking about What we're learning from Africa. And what seeing what? We don't know where we're confused. So those are very robust ongoing conversations every single day and then we're also just trying to have some humor at night too right. Yeah and what about staying active or you guys working out doing yoga together as a family or anything like that. I wish we were doing yoga together. As a family. We seem to be a family that likes to exercise in each of our own ways and own time but luckily it's turned to spring here in Seattle. So it's beautiful to get out and walk. You know our sons in gym lifting weights. So we're all kind of doing our own thing and then we're coming together to do puzzles or play cards at night or sometimes watch a Syria show on TV or a silly show on TV right. Yeah I I know that feeling and and finally last question Melinda what lessons on achieving success and happiness Have you learned that you share with your kids in maybe people from younger generations? I talked to my kids. A lot about The fact that we are all put here to make manifest in the world are wants and how we can what we can contribute to the world but it all comes down to values and so I'm always talking to my kid about who do you WanNa be. How do you show up in the world? And how do you stay true to those values and I think for younger generations to think a bit about their values and who they want to be in the world and how they want to act and I think we all have to have safe places that when we don't act our best or we say something to somebody even our family that we wished we hadn't that we learned to repair and to say no? I wasn't my best self today. And so I talk a lot to our kids about living living into their values and and there's still quite honestly developing their talents and their values and that's great and we're Harris parents to try and support and nurture that Melinda Gates Co Chair of the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Thank you so much your time. Stay safe be will talk to you sin. You've been watching influencers. I'm Andy Serwer will see next time..
