Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author, Scientist, and Renowned Polymath Jared Diamond Discusses the Derisive Term 'Finlandization'
"Is the first country that you discuss in the book. Outsiders uses derisive term called finlandisation to describe the nation's relationship with the soviet union. Now russia you confess to being a little bit guilty of this yourself during. I think it was one of your earlier first visits to that country. Why defense take offense at the term finlandisation. And what is it. That non-finn seem to misunderstand. Sure finlandisation is a a nasty word. It's a blaming word that non-finns particularly germans and other europeans and americans applied to finland after world war tooth in world war. Two finland got attacked by the soviet union whose population is about forty times that of finland. The finns fought fiercely. Lots of them got killed. But finland managed to retain its independence but finns learned a lesson from the war against russia. Which is. let's make sure we're not going to get into that mess again. And what we'll do is. We'll talk constantly with the russians at every level from the president downwards so that the russians are not suspicious of us. will they'll know what we're thinking The russians will know that the anoc can be surprised by making an alliance with some other country attacking finland by the back door. Finland's learned learned and they were very careful not to offend the soviet union when the soviet union vade hungry. The finns kept their mouth shot. Okay germans and american set that is that's a lack of courage should speak out against the soviet invasion of hungary and finish. His response was if we speak out. That's gonna have no effect on the soviet union but we learned that we cannot offend the soviet union. Because hundred thousand dollars got killed from making that mistake. That's finlandisation namely a small country being very careful about large country when i first went to finland. I'm embarrassed to say that that one my my best friend in finland who was a veteran of the winter war. I told him so. Why being so careful about russia because if you get into trouble the united states and britain france will protect you. Oh god there's nothing worse i could say. Because the finns had been deserted by all their allies and the finns learned that awesome viable is going to depend upon ourselves. That's finlandisation it worked finland. It's not gonna work for the united states and so there was a sense that they couldn't afford to be brave and speak out against the soviet union as much as others would have liked because they were realistic and they knew that no one else may come to our aid. If we do. Why do we want to get one. Hundred thousand people killed again. Eighty thousand about children driven into exile. No big and be. We're not gonna be stupid again. We can be careful. We will talk constantly with the russians will remain a liberal. Democracy will remain a rich country investing heavily in education. All the we're going to do differently is we're going to talk constantly with the russians. So that they will trust arson and interestingly the united states after the fall of the soviet union sadly in the nineteen nineties while the soviet union was there in a big threat. The united states was talking constantly with the soviet union but with the fall of the soviet union we began to take russia less
How the Indian Act continues to impact the lives of First Nation people
"In two, thousand and Fifteen Bob Joseph member of the Guohua Anoc nation wrote an article about the many ways. The Indian act was destructive, first nation, communities and culture. The article went viral. He has since expanded that article, and in two thousand eighteen released the book twenty one things. You may not know about the Indian Act. He's guest today. Think of him as our INDIANAP- tour guide to help us better understand the impact of this historic legislation. Welcome Bob Thank you, thank you. It's great to be here. So? Your original article on the Indian Act went viral. What kinds of responses were? Were you getting from the article lots of? Wow I didn't know that and you know sort of the moments, and we're still getting responses today you know on twitter and facebook where people are still saying you gotta read this book every Canadian Street this book and you don't know what you don't know. He'd be three times. You hear that you know we do our training workshops as well I do training for on sort of indigenous awareness. And one of the exercises that we have people do at the start of every session that they think of Dayton history and come up with a short sentence to describe it, and it's got to be specific Vo. To indigenous peoples and have a flip chart at the front and say you know we're going to put all of the old dates, the top the flip chart in the more recent ones at the bottom, and usually draw a line, know eighteen, sixty seven and another line when we pay treated the constitution that section, thirty, five and nineteen eighty two. And we get people to start putting their dates, and so what we find is shucks, Cartier and Columbus, discovering the new world and Vikings and things like that and you see a lot of recent date for two thousand ten winter Olympics things that are more. Recent oriented Ohka and those kinds of things, but always saw this gap in the middle, and it was usually between eighteen and sixty, seven, nine, hundred, eighty two. And it really just highlights what people don't know. There's a period of history there and a lot of those beats Indian. Activate fall right in that time line I would venture to say they don't know too much about the Indian Act. Most people have never even read that legislation. What is one element of it? That always surprises people for for a lot of people they think that people living on reserves and under the Indian Act live in some kind of Shangrila. Free housing free education, and they don't pay taxes. Those seem to be some of the bigger issues, but. When we when talk about things like, yes, they don't pay taxes. Section eighty. Seven of the Indian Act was put into place to protect their property from the erosion of taxes. Well, they were simulating. So that's what the Indian Act is post confederation assimilation policy tool, so we're going to protect their property from near Ocean of taxes on the face of it sounds really helpful, but you know we look at it, not more current context. It really just holds the Venetians back if If I wanted to go buy a truck for my car dealership, and if I had it delivered to the reserve, because I'm a status Indian I. Don't pay transactional taxes on that vehicle. If it's delivered to the reserve, that definitely is a benefit that people see, but what they don't see that as soon as I, declared the exemption reserves are also not subject to seizure under legal process, and so as soon as I declare the exemption, the financial services people no okay. Okay? He's a status India. Fife Thelma's the truck and he stops paying for it I can't go and take it back from him. If refuses to pay for very often, see the benefits, but they don't see some of the restrictions and some of the other things that are problematic with the Indian Act now, the Indianapolis passing mentioned in Eighteen, seventy six, and it impacts the lives of first nations people every day in almost every way it defines who has Indian status outlines chief. Chief and council systems influences the development of residential schools as a first nations person. What is one surprising way? The act influences your life. Today was just starting out my career working for a big firm here in British Columbia by then I'd had a post secondary education I was working for a really reputable solid organization, and we'll look at it from Capitol Lender perspective I I met the four CS of credit I was married had a job at a post secondary education. If I was a lender. I was the perfect candidate, but. They refused to loan me the money and wanted my wife who's not indigenous to cosign for the vehicle, which was quite interesting, just in terms of that whole understanding the impacts of you know trying to make way in the economic mainstream. Now I. WanNa get into one of the most long lasting impacts of the Indian act of the Canadian reserve system, many first nations across the country still live on reserves. Why did the government create the reserve system? The reserve system was really created as part of the old philosophy by the time we can federate Canada believed that the Indians as they're called in the Internet where a dying race of people that they're not going to be here for much longer They were going very rapid depopulation because of to the the that they didn't have immunity to, and they weren't fitting in economically info set the stage for this dine. Race people the best thing we can do to help them to assimilate and become like everybody else, and the feeling was that we would put them onto these reserves in the context of assimilation of reserves, really a holding pen. It's the place where we're going to put them until they. Didn't if simulated, that meant obviously that they were gonNA leave the reserves and go be like all other people in. Canada And they are reserves. People live on them. Don't actually own the land they live on. You can ask people hate the audio nuthouse. Legally technically speaking, the property is that of the federal government and the band is sort of the administrator of that in which people don't know right that they don't know that this is crown land actually, and it's held entrust as the term goes. Goes, and even though the government set aside this, you know this land to first nations, there are many instances where they went back on their word, and took acres away from communities. In your book, you outline how parts of Vancouver and the surrounding area were taken back by government to create the city as it is today. Can you explain how that happened? Yeah, so there was a lot of that. Initially, we put them onto reserves often for the most part left them where they were situated, which is maybe different from the US for they relocated people, thousands of miles sometimes from. From but they put them onto these reserves I think about a place like Vancouver today there's lots and lots of people and urban sprawl, but in those days there wasn't much there, and so they put up Nice generous reserves with good allotment, but then we went back and took it away because they weren't being enterprising people's. You know they're supposed to use those lands and put them to their highest and best youth. It's Kinda this really weird argument, right? We want them to assimilate, but we don't want to compete with them in the markets and so. So, we take away, their one of the things is their ability to sell off her, or they can't sell without written permission from the Indian agent or the Department of Indian Affairs and
Kevin Rudd on anarchy in the post COVID-19 world order, and could stable democracy be a reality in Iraq?
"Former Prime Minister Kevin right on the geopolitical consequences of the pandemic. He predicts the coming post covered. Anneke plus Iraq believe it or not. It's future looks brought today than it has an any point in the past Dick. I'd stay with us for my chat with Linda Robinson from the Rand Corporation. She'll tell us while we should not give up on Baghdad's fragile. Democracy Corona virus continues to take a toll on the health of nations around the world. One thing has become clear the winners and losers not who we might have expected a year ago. The virus is taking an uneven and unpredictable. Course through the world defying. I usual assumptions about power and resilience. Some small poor countries being left relatively unscathed all powerful prosperous nations. I've been ravaged. So what does this mean for global order and for the strategic robbery between China and the United States? Will everything change or is the virus? Mealy accelerating trends that were already in place. Former prime minister of Australia. Kevin Rudd is the President of the Society Policy Institute in New York. He's written an essay in the most recent issue of Foreign Affairs magazine in New York. It's called the coming postcode Enki and he joins me now. From Queensland's Sunshine Coast Kevin Rudd. Welcome back to between the lawns. Good to be with you on between the lines. Now you'll recent essays titled The coming Postcode Anneke Y Anneke. You're good real turns color of international relations you would know that realists assume that. Anneke is in fact the natural state All the International Society of states rent was Headley Bull who wrote about this crowd along time ago and Australian realist and Australian realist. Ten within the real documents that order actually represents the exception rather than the rule So why do I argue this I argue it because the current order as we've done since forty five is underpinned by and large by US geopolitical pound Gio economic power secondly That's become challenge at least by China Thirdly the Cova crisis has turbo charge The hit on American real and perceived power. But there's a full factor as well. Which is the impact which the Cova crisis has on China's Powell not least the damage to its economy the flow through effect to its ability to spend on the amounts of money on its military and on the belt and road initiative example but more importantly international perceptions of China in the developed in the developing world. So where do we end up? We end up not with The same old order as in the past but a slow and steady drift towards more anoc order. We're both China and the US damaged and the institutions of global governance with the UN. The will bank the National Monetary Fund the G. Twenty etc become increasingly the terrain for geopolitical battle. Between these two wounded POWs a K. Sunday the country's the victory he but some analysts say that China's heavy handed approach eccentric lockdowns violence. That's been a political win for Xi Jinping in Matt strengthened the Central Authority of the communist regime. How would you respond to them? Well let's look at That argument within China itself. There's been a huge hit on the accompany And as a result of that China will have its worst gross numbers twenty twenty the Ted in over half a century since the end of the Cultural Revolution almost That is huge. It undermines She Jinping's China Drain which was One pillar of which was for China to quadruple. Its G. D. DP by twenty twenty measured against two thousand levels this single year of itself. Economic non-performance blows a hole amidships in that and then secondly on top of that. Tom You've got the problem which arises in terms of internal political debates within China so and I think some growing levels of resistance to Xi Jinping's on leadership and finally as I mentioned before The blowback around the world in terms of the economic damage To economize both developed and developing causing a big question mark to a rise in terms whether China has in fact being the risk to the world's best friend because of the outbreak of this virus. So these factors I think. Qualify the overall argument you hear from some the China's authoritarian model in managing the crisis domestically translates into a geopolitical win the China internationally. I don't think that necessarily holes walk conversations. Do you think heaven. I going on right now in Beijing over China's place in the world I mean is the division division over this so-called Wolf Warrior this is the and diplomacy we often hear about a division between that Wolf Warrior. Diplomacy versus say China's desire to promote soft power. Chinese politics in some respects is not dissimilar to elements of politics. We and other countries. That is you find nationalist. Ten internationalists you find a local ists globalists' you find audio logs versus as it were reformers and pregnant at this and so the as political system while it's Control by Xi Jinping's leadership still has all these tensions and personalities within it so the debates now I think are of a twofold. How do we allow this to happen? In the first place what failed in terms of the processes insistence China put in place after the Saas Crisis of two thousand and three to prevent a pandemic or epidemic as it was then from happening again. The second debate is how the Hillary you get the economy back together again given the China a economy with forty percent of Gdp comes from the traded six or the economy and International. Trade is being blend. Bits by this crosses and the other debate again between nationalists internationalised is the one. You've just touched on the Tom. Which is China's wolf worried diplomats out there launching attacks against any critique of China's performance On the one hand defend the party's legitimacy and on the other hand older more seasoned diplomat saying this isn't actually contributing much to the improvement of China's global image those discussions and debates underway. At the moment we're talking about this wolf warrior diplomacy. What do you make of China's recent boycotts threats of boycotts of Australian Exports Bali? Beef what what's going on well as I've said in other recent interviews since those public statements by the China's ambassador Australia it's unacceptable in my view for any ambassador accredited to any country to receive public threats against the host country In City five years of more dealing with the Australian China relationship I don't recall previous Chinese ambassadors of having done that not by any Australian diplomat ever having done that irrespective of the crisis of the day with was ten on all the things that I went through when I was in office etc so I think as a matter of shall we say diplomatic practice. What occurred then was regrettable as as being some of the hotline commentary. Which emanated from the Chinese nationalist media? the bottom line is however the Chinese nationalists have seen The effectiveness All the some of these sorts of measures when applaud various countries in the past sorts of economic leverage which China replied to no way out to no way through the Nobel Prize Committee Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to a famous Chinese dissident And I've also seen how those Economic Leverage points of work with various of the Europeans. So this is not alien to the Chinese playbook my argument about China's Australia's management of The relationship in prison is that if the Australian government's of the view and a view I in general support that there needs to be an independent international inquiry as to the origins the virus transmission of the virus notifications to the WHO and threw them to the world community etc. Then again to put that Ford isn't as trade in government and then do some work on it. I get a few other governments to come along with you an advance that through the multilateral machinery which rather than just blow it out as a thought bubble That's the way which you do. Real things in the international community rather than I. Fear sometimes pitching a diplomatic initiative primarily for domestic political leverage into straighter. What complicates matters? Further is president trump's theory that the virus was leaked from a lab in Wuhan and raises the question. Why would China agree to enquiry without losing this between the lines on? Abc Radio National. The familiar voice. You're hearing is former prominence to Kevin. Rudd is now president of the Asia Society Policy Institute in New York. We've been talking about his article in the current issue of Foreign Affairs magazine. Kevin we'll talking about China and how it's paid a price as a result of this current ivars. Let's turn to the United States. How badly damaged is the use in your judgement? I mean we'll recover reasonably quickly With a change of administration in November or does the damage go deep. Perhaps too deep for recovery has been deep damage politically. The the. The House is a divided house within the United States. Those of us who have followed. Us politics of the many years have rarely seen it This divisive and that actually is a real factor in terms of constructing a post presidential election national consensus on how America engages the World. And the future. American politics has become so binary including on America's own future will view on the economic damage. It's huge. This is the biggest hit on newest economy at least since nineteen forty-six and the recovery from the war and probably since the depression the end of the depression and thirty three So this takes a while to recover But the American economy know a history of resilience. Look what happened after the global financial crisis? But well I was going to make the point to is enormous capacity for change and renewal. I mean you think about its recovery from the civil war that oppression in Vietnam. You being a bit too pessimistic. Kevin. Well I live in the United States and I actually listened to the debate on back in Australia now and when my American interlocutors Republican and Democrat Friends of mine over twenty years who A positive let's call it. The Foreign Policy National Security Policy Machinery signed that it's become increasingly hard to forge consensus these days across the aisle on America's behavior in the world That is a real issue. Then it's not just my external analysis it's part of the internal analysis within the US itself. Do I think the United States can come through the domestic political Malays and the Economic Destruction? Which has occurred? Yes I do. Because it's remarkably resilient country But I think a precondition is that We see a Democrat. Win this November it's not that. I am a A cheerleader for Joe Biden. Personally I barely know the man Bought he's lucky to put together a mainstream Competent Foreign Policy and National Security Policy Tame as opposed to Frankly the chaotic nature of the trump administration on most foreign and national security policy questions. And that I think is necessary for America to rebuild. Its alliances abroad rebuild. Its credibility in the eyes of the risks of the will and to overcome what has been an extraordinary period where America rather than taking the lead in the global recovery From the virus both in public health systems and economic terms as simply being missing in action and in fact the unable to contain it's the damage domestically

Going in the right direction that's great. There's so many Italian players now like of all ages doing really well. What makes Italian tennis player? So special today you know when when when fairies start to play well pay stock to believe more they are trying more and I think it's also surreal Neatly in the last ten years there are lots of challenges of the future so the young player can play a lot of comment. And don't talk too much so that's really important. That makes a huge difference just having tournament on your doorstep and the cost a pretty low. Yeah yeah that's important. You know when a young player as to travel a lot. A lot of expense soy's School to have a lot of tournaments. You can go by car anoc of time. So it's it's good. It's good to have a lot of tournaments in our country and our Muslim Clay-court. Yes mostly on clay cool by the Easter also. On awkward there is future Lange asking care have five six challenger on our court and I think are on future Soit. Okay tell me used to be that hundred sixteen the world.

Three hundred so it was good works together great and just come back before you start working with him so we just mentioned briefly. Italian Tennessee student so well but apart from all the challenges that run initially every week every two weeks is a futures on all the time. What else has changed and Italian structure from the time? When you play tha now. I feel like I was coaching Michael Owen when they reached the semi final in various sets. And the think diesel Morris The Star of other player.

Mixing Business with Personal Matters
"Can A business owner or business leader determine whether hiring a friend or a family member is a good fit. I see why you think that's the big question. Yeah I I agree with you. It's It's definitely a sensitive topic But but the answer is you know. Just like you'd have to look at it just like any other higher and that's on the merits You know having a friend or family member work for you you know. I've always looked at that as a bonus. So all of you know in if you know Much about my firm. You'll know that there's a lot of my very close friends and family Working my my sister-in-law my wife works in Property Management One of my childhood friends chief of Staff So for us. It's it's worked very very well but the reason I believe it's worked. Well is because each one of those individuals is highly skilled and highly competent In that job role without being my friends or being my family so having that extra piece just heighten the experience and really solidifies. The culture That we've worked very hard to cultivate a RASTA Gar Which is this familial experience whether it's directly with our end user clients at the at the real estate level whether it's with our investors But that that's the that's the main point for us is is the is the requisite level competency to effectively execute. Those jobs yeah Excuse me I I love an answer and I really appreciate that out because I think too many times. People think it's going to be great and it's GonNa be a lot of fun and then it actually works against work life balance when it isn't a good fit because it just creates all sorts of stress and anxiety and and bad relationships if you don't hire for merit you if you hire for relationship I'm GonNa Kinda you know step in for a second and see how this notion of work like that work life balance for all right great There is never going to be worked as an entrepreneur and quite frankly to achieve anything of massive success whether it's GonNa be Athletics whether it's education there is going to be specialty and a massive teetering towards one thing. I'll give you an example. You know if you have the sun is you know over your head on a on a hot sunny day in Texas and you have You know a couple Sticks together in a few shreds of paper. You're not going to catch this thing on fire. What's GonNa make it catch on fire taking a magnifying glass and focusing those rays of sun and they to a focal point that would cause a tremendous amount of heat? That can then start a fire Entrepreneurship and businesses. No different if you are going to become a professional or become a licensed individual any vocation you decide to become a doctor example. What you're really saying is I'm not going to be an accountant lawyer. Anoc going to be a thousand other things. I'm going to be this one thing so by doing that. It takes a tremendous amount of focus. And saying no to a tremendous amount of things that take you off kilter to be wildly focused in one thing. You know the Jack of all trades master of none so I think that the the challenge Or or the opportunity is not to create the balance it's to be able to teeter to one direction of the spectrum dramatically in have the ability to strengthen the agility to pull yourself back to the other side of the spectrum and be able to play within that spectrum and create that dance so to speak to me. That's where the magic happens. Because at balancer at Homeo- stasis nothing tremendous value ever happens that's really interesting. I totally agree with you. That balance is not really a thing. I've heard people say it's more like harmony. You know the the the you're where you should be when you should be there and our pardon me heart harm as is a beautiful word. That's a beautiful beautiful word You know to to describe it and you know if you look at even in the orchestra and you have all these different instruments playing You know at these different notes and these different speeds and tempos if the Pearson so chaotic but once you hit that syncopated beat and you find that harmony. All of a sudden you have this profound amount of energy profound amount of grace that that occurs within what is seemingly chaos. You know which is what you know. What the job of an entrepreneur actually is which is managing chaos I read you know many years ago. A great definition of entrepreneurship. Which is you know. One that jumps off the side of a mountain and builds a plane on the way down so true. I'm feeling that actually Okay so if someone is really thinking about Hiring family or friends are there. Can you give us an idea of? What some of the qualities are that. They should look for in someone to make sure that they're gonNA provide value. I mean I guess. I'm curious like beyond thing. They're gonNA do absolutely. I mean it it. All revolves around. Trust you 'cause you find that. There's many of her friends or family that we're we're in. We're in a stressful situation last people that want to tell what's going on because you know even you know out of love. Sometimes love can be pretty sharp. Daggers so so it's about being Being able to have the trust with those individuals that when the inevitable stressful situations arise They can be you know a source of solution and being able to have you know beyond just the simple workmanship right because a lot of times. You're working you're going through things and You know sometimes the impetus is to keep it to yourself And you know that burden yourself whether it's you know in a department whether it's a CEO But having that you know unbelievable trust with those folks that to me is really the x factor and even more how well they know you for example you know my chief of Staff Major Miller. We've been friends for I WanNa say almost twenty five years and he he knows by a simple you know. Look on my face from you. Know from fifty yards away of whether or not at the right time to have a certain discussion and has the discernment to know when to schedule meetings. Or if you know. A certain meeting takes priority Over another one is is really powerful. Say My sister-in-law you know Kim lingers who's our VP operation's Rastegar. You know she she has that same ability she can very easily and different situations. Be Able to speak on my behalf. You know knowing by ninety nine percent what I'm gonNA say or how I feel about a certain situation and by having those intangibles productivity skyrockets And I think that you know. That's the main crux And beyond that. You know it's it's integrity you know which again falls under the merits of any type of hiring but when when people really know you and they really understand you. it's incredible. How much productivity can exist.
The Bubble That Broke Kuwait
"And we've got got a doozy for you today. I'm joined by. Dr Is Rafi on Darius I cardiff Yes today I've got a story for you about one of the greatest stock bubbles of all time which occurred in of all places Kuwait Kuwait. Yes and the story begins in the late. Nineteen seventies during what is known as Kuwait's golden era so Kuwait had been this kind of sleepy desert outpost and then due to the massive influx of oil money. It became this bustling metropolis list. And I actually talked to a man named Saba Araya's who was a prominent businessman in Kuwait around this time and he talks about what Kuwait looked like when he was a kid. Growing growing up like Trinity. We have running water up happening structure The there was no air conditioning for looks up over elevators. And by the late nineteen seventies Kuwait had become this modern metropolis and it also become the financial center of the Middle East because they region was rocked by turmoil. At this point in Kuwait with its really well regulated financial sector and it's relatively stable political. Climate became came this magnet for all of this money that was fleeing turmoil. Elsewhere in the region is a pretty classic emerging markets story starts doing some things right and then all this money he starts coming in from other places And obviously that drove up prices in Kuwait's official stock market but it was very very tightly. Regulated it you know. There are lots of regulations about what kinds of companies could be listed there who was allowed to invest. How are they allowed to invest and made it very stable but it also made it kind of a boring place to invest all this money? That wants to invest in Kuwaiti companies. And if it can't do their maybe it will find some other way to invest invest in them. Well it did find another way. Basically right across the street from the official Kuwaiti stock market. A sort of love informal unofficial stock market developed it was known as the soup ALMANAC and it was literally in a air conditioned parking garage on the site eight of the old camel market and sugamo knock literally translates to the market at the place where the camels rest traders started gathering there and trading trading stocks amongst each other. And I spoke to Ben Craig who is a economic policy adviser for the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. And he's written a lot about the suit GALMOC Manakh And I have to clarify here. That everything he said in our interview only represents his personal views. He doesn't represent the views of the Federal Reserve. But I talked to him about this sort of informal formal market that developed. It was seen as an area where you could have fun but what Claes stays in the soup. I don't think I've heard that one before for we'll basically the government said hey. We like having this innovative kind of risky market with big returns. But we don't want the risk to infect the rest has to the economy so they put all these rules in place that said banks are not allowed to touch the super. They can't lend money to people who are investing there. It's got to be completely cut off from the financial sector her but of course traders don't like this because they don't want to just trade with the money they have in their pocket they WANNA borrow money in and you know potentially get even higher returns turns and so the system developed between the traders in the soup that I think was a little bit ingenious. The couldn't borrow money from the bank. So what they did is they had this system of writing post dated checks so basically card if I want to buy a stock for meal. It's worth one hundred dollars now and I think it's going to go up in the future. All right you a check I I say one hundred ten dollars and date it for a year from now you know like if your rent is due on the first you don't get paid till the third. Yeah date your check on the third. That's right that's what they were doing but they would do it for a year and in that situation. It's like you just lent me money for a year but then this sort of interesting thing happened with check check itself became a little bit like cash so suppose that maybe I want to buy some of that stock. I don't have any cash but I have that posted hosted shack and so I just passed that posted check onto a nar trader. It was essentially a way for these traders to print their own money and then Craig cautions against drawing any comparison to other markets. But in my opinion it's not all that different from what happened. In the run-up to the financial central crisis where mortgage-backed securities became much bigger than mortgages in this case the checks that were backed by stocks became much bigger than the stocks themselves selves. And thanks to this. System of kind of endless unregulated credit the Kuwaiti stock market skyrocketed. It became the third heard largest stock market in the world. Bigger even than London and Sobowale riotous says that this was turning people into instant millionaires. He recounted the story to me of going to his friend's apartment and I saw this huge big plate full with the new caveat. You know they by the House and then it was.

Well, it popped up on Twitter yesterday. Saw three house capital management's feed, one of their money managers, you'll have Sharon put in a chart together, and I basically duplicate it now, rather than taking the broadest measure of inflation. The consumer price index, he focused on what's called the core CPI. So you take food out of the equation. And when you add that together to jobless rate, your five point six percent that's the lowest readings since nineteen sixty six so at the fed decides the cut interest rates next week, it's not because consumers are miserable.

Yeah. Maybe your next social influence persona. Yeah. I'd like to see the guy that you got me on onto dangles. Yeah. You could beat him that would be fun to do to start messing with my social media in a more abrupt way. I don't care wants to do it. But yeah, it'd be fun to make a little persona that was me big anyway, so, but with with a model, for example, they don't give you much of their subjectivity what they think about various things because that would take away from the illusion like, okay? So actually the ultimate fantasy for many people as a key of mine having sex with a Barbie doll. Yeah. So a key of mom think of is somebody who just how sacks that that body there the primitive person who just how sex and they don't care. They do want the subjective who brute alpha. Yeah. And then the Barbie dole is the one he is someone who has completely subtracted their subjectivity from their physicality to become an object onto for many people. This is kind of basic structure pharmacy. The key of mine on the Barbie doll all just comes dying to for for many people. You're either the necrophiliac or the corpse this isn't necessarily a healthy thing. But it made me go. Oh, yeah. Shocker. Not necessarily best case scenario. But it was like, oh, yeah. We can learn something about necrophilia in the biological. Honorable kingdom that speaks to something in our subjectivity. Yeah. Wow. Man. Yeah. I mean, I get it. It's you're right. That's all correct. I one hundred percent get it. There's a there's a thing in this is going to not shed anybody in the best light. But there's a certain element to like objectification that is like not necessary. Guess but it it times. It's like if your goal oriented sex person than it seems like you're gonna have a tougher time. Sometimes when you start getting into the inter because, you know, then you get to know the person, and then it becomes like thing. And then it's like, you're they see you to give to like, I think if my guess would be if the caveman felt like the Barbie doll salt caveman for who he really was. He wouldn't be. Yeah. He'd have a tougher time. I guess let's that that's the problems of the fantasy can be bought into by booth booth parties.

"Now, it's very easy to think the other side is just full of basically. Mr. So that's the social media counters few other aspects of it. I think are really important 'gate-keeping the ability to share it false information. But I'll leave that for another discussion. What I to about today is the history of traditional media and something that I think there's been you could Anoc going to make a strong argument here for causal relationship. But I do think that it's suggestive that these two things polarization, and it sort of intensity of politics and the form in which we consume media. They probably do have a pretty tight relationship with each other. So I'll just point out that partisan partisanship and media information kind of have three at least clear phases that you can see looking through American history. Now at a lot of people don't realize about the American newspaper system is that you don't get the modern newspaper where you know, it's a newspaper of record. And you know, you're expected to be covering everything that's happening. And you're sitting in this like very like. Let's inform. The public kind of way that's a creature of the twentieth century early. Twentieth century, you get the New York Times. It goes back quite a ways. But for the most part, there's not a lot of these newspapers that are really functioning that way. Newspapers. Eighteen hundred nineteen hundred were almost always partisan tools. They were run by partisans. They were often explicitly run by members of one of the major political parties, the democratic Republicans of the Whigs wherever you had at the time, but these were party people running explicitly partisan messages and the purpose of these newspapers for the most part was to push propaganda into the public regarding the party system. So if you were a subscriber to a newspaper, you almost certainly an active member of that political party. And so the the information that you would get is essentially an echo chamber. You get a one party read of everything that's going on. And there's a very low chance that you would ever be. Exposed to any outside information. It's you know, I don't think a totally unconnected coincidence that from eighteen hundred to nineteen hundred for large chunks of this period. It's highly associated with very bitter, very strong partisan differences. Now, you hit nineteen hundred you have a natural change to this system. So what happens in one thousand nine hundred or around? There is you've got literacy rates have been shooting up over the past few decades, really after the civil war literacy rates skyrocket. And you get up to the point where most people you can expect are people to whom you can sell a newspaper before that it's hard to even create a non-partisan newspaper because it's hard to get a script subscription base. Melot people can't read and you can't build a newspaper that you can't sell advertising. If people can't read the advertisements. I mean, this is a period of time in the eighteen hundreds where if you wanted to persuade someone even on a political bit of. Propaganda for the most part in Jacksonian politics, and beyond you actually had to hire. People to go out on a city street and read from your propaganda shouted at them because they're not gonna be able to read it so round the nineteen hundreds people can start reading William Randolph. I two people probably have heard that name very very powerful racist horrible newspaper magnate, basically decided to popularize the newspaper and say everyone can read. Now, I'm going to turn this into a non-partisan thing to attract as many is like into the paper, and we're gonna mostly talk about nonpartisanship. We're gonna talk about sports and fashion and advertising and all sorts of ton of advertising. And so the news business and. Yeah. If you're going to do business press once you get to that part. So now, you can't do partisan business press because you won't have a paper because it's about people making money not affirming their political police. Exactly, exactly. So the incentives very rapidly in this period shift pretty dramatically away from let's try to get the party base riled up to let sell advertisements to fifty year olds that like reading about the baseball in the sports section and all the sudden, you get this rapid shift in society away from news as politics and towards news is kind of light entertainment, consumer stuff and for the most part these partisan presses shut down. If you read about politics, maybe read about in a newspaper..

"The latest is a bombshell report from our friend. John psalm was just on the last segment of our broadcast talking about his headline is a a shocker DOJ fish warned Steele. Dossier was connected to Clinton might be biased. And here's the interesting thing about this. So supposedly, Bruce or told FBI officials DOJ officials, including two not with a special counsel's office that this dossier which was based on how they got the FIS warrants is was politically biased because it came from the Clinton campaign that's funded it anyways. And he also says he told them that his wife was working. For fusion GPS yet. They fire Christopher Steele. Because he leaked information to the media and appropriately. But then as soon as James Comey's fired. They try to rehire him that one still to me Andy, you're smiling. But that one still to me kind of sums up the whole case. I mean, I'm smiling because it's so incredible. Th that the government is doing something like this. You know, you've got a guy Steele who is determined to see the Donald Trump is not elected president of the United States. He's got this dossier. This piece of trash that he puts out funded by the Democrats funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign, and you're talking about putting him and the people that he has briefed on on mother's team. Who have that information Wiseman Anoc mod, and what kind of a neutral and detached team can that possibly be Jay I like, the no, let's call it. It's not now the question is in the wa- in Washington DC is this going to play with the Senate oversight. Well, it it's going to have to Jay that's the only way that we're going to restore confidence. Because look I mean, I think it's pretty clear what a great piece from John kind of putting together some of the pieces that we've uncovered in foia. Looking at the IDC report Jay is pretty clear that a sacred trust with the FBI and the DOJ has been broken. And in my view, the only way you can restore that sacred trust. And by the way that sacred trust is needed. If that lawn for those law enforcement agencies are going to be effective. The only way you can restore Jordan is to replace the people that are in charge of it. Now, I do think half of that equation is already in play. But I would say to Senator Graham of the Senate Judiciary committee. I would say to probably the next attorney general Bill bars, he's confirmed by the United States Senate. These are two things that they need to be really really focused on because when you look back everyone inside this bureau Jordan knew that they were using faulty information from a contact that could not be trusted and yet they decided to do it anyway. And they didn't just do it on some willy nilly case, Jordan, they used it to surveillance an American citizen. That is a sacred trust that has been fatally broken, and it must be restored by replacing the people who are in charge. All right, folks..

"And so I'm talking about let the behaviorally the way and let the beliefs follow like do something small and easy. Even if it's only five push-ups, and then let the belief that I'm a fit person come naturally once you've shown up in cast enough votes. And so I think in that sense, I guess to use the the Aerostat will kind of angle with it the way to be virtuous person has to act with virtue in by doing that even in small ways. His you eventually come to see yourself in that light. And I imagine this identity insight. Right. Can also go to bad habits. I think part of the process of changing your identities might be accepting. I'm the kind of person who who drinks allow you to accept like, maybe I'm gonna alcoholic or mayhem smoking. I think a lot of people might not want to do that. Because it's uncomfortable. And it makes you feel bad, but maybe have to do that too. So you can begin that identity changed where like Anoc an I'm I want to be the person type of person who's not a drinker or smoker or whatever. Yeah. That's I mean, it's a deep point and an important one identity, and this is true for all things related to habits, everything that we're talking about here is a double edged sword, it can work habits can work for you or against you. You can get one percent better. One percent worse. And in the sense of identity. There are all kinds of identities that people adopt that hold them back. You know, things like I have a sweet tooth or I'm bad at math, or I'm terrible remembering directions, or you know. I never remember people's names parties or things like that. And as soon as you start to. Opt that identity, and we often do it blindly non consciously. We don't even realize that we're identifying in that way. Like people say, I have a sweet tooth all the time. I've heard it so much as late since I've published the book at starting to notice it, and we all they often just use it as an excuse. They'll say things like, oh, yeah. You know, like eating chocolate by such a sweet tooth or you're out to dinner in. They're like, oh, yeah. We have to get some cake. Like, I have a sweet tooth. I love dessert. And they don't think like I am identifying is the kind of person who you know, like has a sweet tooth. It's not. It's not that kind of like script going on your mind. But I think that you are correct in that once it stated once it become once you become aware that you have this identity, which can be a painful process or something that we'd like to avoid then though, you have the chance to change it that I think that's the power in realizing that you're identifying a particular way recap that there's a lot of useful information there. So basically, we want one of the more effective ways to instill. New habits in yourself is start from an identity. Think APAC I wanna be a runner that type of person who's a runner the type of persons a weightlifter. And then you make that decision. And then every day, you do little small things to reinforce that new identity. That's right. Okay. Well, let's dig in to a little deeper this you talk about the force of habit building that Charles duhig made famous in his book the power of habits. Can you summarize that in how did you build off of that? So do Higgs approach is a three step model where he's got Q routine reward. And I could give you a very long explanation to why change it, but I'll keep it short. Which is basically that model is backed up by a lot of behavioral psychology research, which shows that are behaviors are kind of dependent on the rewards that they give us and when we get a reward for doing something when an action makes us feel good. We start to associate the cue that came before it with the feeling that comes after. So simple example is like you walk into a kitchen..

"He's never been Many's never been lost by decision. So he's technically undefeated when it comes to every aspect of how usually fights end up. So who do I see in this fight? Well, if Jones does his classic stick out his fingers and keep the guy that distanced I poke said he's very common doing especially in last five with gourmet. And he did it with gusts in in the first fight. I still gotta go with Jones on this one. I think see it's really hard to tell. But I think the striking has to go and John Jones's favor. And of course, I just I think he's just overall is better talent than Gus in is, and I think most would agree, but I'm not I'm not leaving him out Gus in that is. I'm just putting in aspects of Jones did win by unanimous decision last time they fought in. I think that's going to be maybe a repeat I don't see a knockout or maybe maybe a submission by Jones. I mean Jones has those long limbs any can catch Gaza Saint if he goes to the ground takes him to the ground. But honestly, I see this as a fight that's going to stand up, but overall I'll take Jones winning by decision probably unanimous decision if that's the case, but I would love to see Anoc at obviously not at submission victory. But usually with Jones's fights it to me, they just usually end in decisions, and he just likes to take the early advantages. The first couple of rounds and win he knows he's winning the fight. He likes to lean back a little bit and play defense. But that that's for me a Ettelaat fighters to so put banning. Iteration. But if I had to make the choice like I said, I'm going John Jones by decision if I pick unanimous or split, I say unanimous split decisions are so rare nowadays that I've seen. I don't remember the last time I remember title fight that went to a split decision. So. But yeah, this Jones got us into fight is big. And I'm excited to watch it. But there's also another fight that I'm really looking forward to in. That's the featherweight the women's featherweight title fight between cyborg in Nunez. And this is a big fight union. As is the bent bantamweight women's champion right now. And so it's be once again another champion versus champion fight dislike McGregor won his title, his double title. And how Korea won his double title is. Well, this could be a third fight that a double champion will be crowned or possibly be crowned. I guess I could say if unions wins this fight she will be double champion the third one in history. But the last time cyborg lost the fight was her debut fight. And of course, she has lost since I mean, she's twenty and one in UNESCO. Sixteen four but all of those high Borg's fights end in either a decision or knockout, so no submission. Advantage for cyborg. So I get the I get the ground game to Nunez on this one. And I think the unions wants to win this fight. She cannot stand up with cyborg. I think that's a Lou, obviously, I think that's a losing battle just. Which is a whole 'nother end, she's awake class above news. Obviously, she has the power advantage. But again, I think unions just needs to take her to the ground in work unsubdued sue, but again, this is going to be very introduced fight. I mean, this is who well, I would say she has the knockout Toronto Rowzee. But again, Rhonda was not the same as she used to be before that fight. So I won't really say that it's an advantage. Of course, we all wanted to see a rousing versus cyborg fight. But that of course, this never happened rouses down the WWE as the actually the women's champion at the time the raw woman's champion to be more specific. But anyways, overall, I would say this Denia cyborg fight is going to be little more competitive in my opinion than Jones and gusts, and I just think Jones's little more. A hands hands off like like, I said he's likes to leave his fingers on have the guy. Get poked in the L A little bit, which I think is going to be a big factor in that fight to be honest. But I do like this cyborg Nunez fight..

But we often because the science fiction think when we're talking artificial intelligence, we're thinking RoboCop, we're thinking, you know, human thinking machines. It's not what we're talking about really machine. Learning is the human set the the criteria and the standards and the and the training sets. And and so what we have to do is do that. Right. And then let the machines. And if you look at something like gerrymandering is a good example of where you go shouldn't the machine do that a machine should definitely do that. And we set the rules. We say here's what we want. We want equitable distribution of votes, or whatever it is it mostly that we want. We want to start at the bottom corner. We wanna go this way. We wanna don't wanna find it. Equally machine would do a better job machines. Do a better job. Driving cars machines, though, it's early days. So Watson didn't do. So. Well in medicine, but that doesn't mean it won't in time. Right humans will determine what are the outcomes we want, and then let the machine to armistic is humans determine what are the outcomes we want, and then we try to do it. And we screw it up. Every freaking time. We're a bunch of idiots and then cleansing. That's the old rogue, they're not smart. That's not the issue. It's machine learning human rules. But they're going to do it. Rationally they're going to drive a car rationally they're gonna gerrymander rationally they're gonna make rash on my iphone will have more text entry month. Leave it even not to turn this into another forty five minute Brad hole on something. That's that's painfully interesting. But not macro not apple related. But yeah, I mean, so it's always going to be about what instructions do the machines. And so when it comes to gerrymandering, it's what do what if if you want to make sure that every community within a group has a political voice. Do you arrange the district? So that I vote alongside the five thousand people who live closest to me, or is it because here is we have figured we have determined that. Here is Andy Anoc goes political thought we are going to give him sort of a virtual conju congressional district that represents people who think like him. So that their congressperson we they will elect a congressperson who reflects their ideals their beliefs. It's the only the only problem is when you when you when you gerrymander based on a result that you that you want to create or basically when you wanted disenfranchise people, but on the other spot. When even when you're trying to do it. Honestly, there is no one great solution. And it's always going to be pretty pretty flaw ful. Right. But that's where the debate should happen rather than right? Let believe California's largely driven computer driven for the for look as an example, the truth is we're going there. It doesn't matter. What you and I say it's going to happen. But it's just a hand Handbasket angry. No, it's right that letting humans run the show has been a vast horrible.

"It's not terrible getting to New York in either direction as some degree of felt like a wash to me. I could have done either. It depends on your mood. It depends in your class service. Do you like having that break to get up and walk around in a real place where you can go more than what three hundred feet neither direction. I could potentially see that as a wash depending on your preference where really catches up is if you're making those onward connections past that. And now you're doing another five hour flight say, you know, down to South America or Latin America or cross doing trance con to the western coast of the US taking that connecting flight up to circus. It's been delayed five hours, for example, not that that ever happens often 'cause totally does. But that's what really starts catching up, and where you really kinda wish you had saved those eight hours in just getting there and getting it over with right? I'm still struggling personally to get excited about this flight when Singapore operated the eighth forty five hundred it was unique it was really set apart from all the other one haul flights. But now it isn't there? There are so many other ultra ultra long haul flights that I see this on just like. It's a long flight doesn't have economy. It's cool. But it's not that long compared to the next nearest flights. And it's great that people are super excited about it. But how much of this is installed versus realism. Yeah. I mean, it was it was definitely a class of its own when it was first launched back in again, two thousand eight three whatever the year was there was no one even competing with it. But now both the Qantas flying cutter flight or within five hundred miles of it. You can't even break the top ten without being over sixteen hours. If I'm remembering correctly, please write letters if I'm wrong, but I might be a little off the top five or at least seventeen hours. So do that. Because I know for sure yet that I can guarantee his well you'd Kenny break the top five without being seventeen. Plus, and when Singapore even retired it there was nothing even competing. I think the next closest was a couple hours shy of that. And again, I think that demonstrates airlines wouldn't be running. These alter along how ultra-long-haul routes if they weren't at least breaking even over time. And I think Singapore might do approve the prestige Anoc convinced that Qantas and other airlines would they might run like project sunrise, route just for the hell of it. But I don't think most airlines are going to do that requires four airplanes to do it successfully that's not a small commitment of metal. That's a lot of money and a lot of staff and a lot of fuel going in both directions at all times to make like these worth worth doing. So I'd be hard pressed to think that in the economies that the way they are the airlines are gonna do those routes if they're not at least for turning a break, even value, Germany. I think that we should leave it there and let you get back to sleep or at least get a little more sleep. But I want to thank you very much for.

It's so much bigger and much of the way a Turkey words is that man will give us this ability. They won't give us infrastructure. And I think that what I started to really think you're in my life.

I'm really struggling with, which is very painful. If lack of acceptance for my own community, which is something I haven't really spoken about that much. I think that when you're an oppressed group, you try to underplay the internal dynamics to have a strong unified fraught. So we often say like, you know, oh, translates matter like this is amazing, but we never actually unpacked the higher keys within the trans community. And I think what's really important to understand is like I'm one of the few public facing transpeople with the platform that I have access to who has chosen not to be on hormones, and that was a personal decision for me because I felt like who I was was consistent with what I want it. And I didn't feel like I should have to take a month in order of people believe why Ardy was. But then what I often experience within my own community, it's trans people saying you're not really frowns, or you would be really transitioned pursued medical transition. And I understand where that comes from a comes from their own feelings, invalidation from people telling them they're not real. That I think part of what I've also been coming into myself is like I am not repository for other people's chain. I'm not a placeholder for other people's insight. I can empathize that does not mean I have a hold and there's a difference between empathizing whole day. I can sit and bear witness and say, I'm so sorry that these things are happening to, but that does not give permission to take that on me. He's at hurts. And so I think I've really been struggling with the pain of being hurt by your own, you know, because I feel like it's so easy these days to say, you know, it's like it's white man were doing all that. We don't have the more difficult conversations. Like what happens in the experience from other women or other transient or other people. Clearly, you don't have that language to be like, what happens in experience from France, notches like romantic are..
"anoc" Discussed on Pantsuit Politics
"I've had more and more people saying like, I think that everyone should get out, but what's really interesting to me, especially as this legislature in Michigan, both the Democrats and Republicans, they've worked so well together and they've been able to accomplish a lot for Michigan like they've have a plan to pay down our debt. They've put two billion dollars back in education, like there's a lot that's happened on bipartisan initiatives. So it's interesting to me that people are so concerned with boating incumbents out, and it kinda shows me that they're not super aware what's been going on because this current legislature of incumbents has done a really good job on both sides of the aisle. So that has been interesting for sure that makes me nervous that mean that's why everybody was so nice to me last time because I was template, I gotta go knock on doors. I know they're doing a terrible job right. That way with the idea that it's becoming harder and harder to sort of have longer answers to alum questions. And I think that gets to what you are saying about about people just thinking you have to vote out all the incumbents is they're not like he said, they're not super paying attention in. It's getting harder. I think on the campaign side to have anything more than a sound bite of information. Well, the thing is true. I mean, here's the reality that I think I learned and I hope that I can channel when Anoc doors again is so much of what happens when you not gonna door in your in your knocking on doors for a campaign is people don't wanna hear your answers. They want you to listen to. Hormones get defensive and not to all you're talking points, not try defend instead of being like you really sound really upset about that. So glad I'm thinking for sharing that with me. I'm so glad I heard that will definitely pass that along like, you know, but it's hard. It's hard. You wanna give him an answer and you want to be like, you're wrong. This. Right? When really they just want someone to listen to them because for better for worse, part of our political climate is people feeling like they, they're powerless and I don't. There are, yeah, Lutely that we what's what we could tell. These campaigns are an excellent way to have your voice be heard. I wish that's what people understood. Yeah, absolutely. I had someone call her office once and it was just one of organizers in i-in day. I answered the phone and it was right when Trump was coming to his Johnson to do groundbreaking on Foxconn, and this guy was like, what is Senator Baldwin doing to like, prevent to what is she doing in response to this? She's not doing anything. You guys aren't doing anything. He's like, I had already called the other campaign office in her her office in the capital two. Now I'm calling you and I was like, okay, you know, I just listen to him talk, but in the end he's like people aren't doing anything like, would you like to come volunteer and like do something and he's like, no. Want to in like hung up on me. You had it on speaker in the organizing are listening. And at one point I was like, I have to get back to work. I've no, no listen here sweetheart, and I was like, oh man. He was like triple my age, and I was like real interesting. But I mean, people want they want someone to listen to them. But then as soon as you're like, would you like to come help? So you can make your voice, your voice heard better and they're like, no, I don't want to. That's really frustrating because it's like they'd be the ones that would really make connection with people because like they have strong opinions too, and. It was just an interesting experience. Think that's tight rope of campaigns. They alternate between incredibly empowering and incredibly frustrating. So they got really nice way to wrap up would just be for everyone to go round share, like sort of motivating factor why they got involved in campaigns and why they felt the need to just take that first action oriented step and some of the positive repercussions are opportunities they had as a result. So have you once you go first? So growing up, my dad always got me really interested and involved in campaigns. No other, it was just going between different candidates offices and learning about stuff..
