Kelly Warrick. Listen, I can't figure it out. Kelly Ward wants to work for. I think she's just whatever side she thinks is going to win whatever is going to serve her the most, because I don't know if she is really part of the establishment. And maybe she is, But then she claims she's part of Donald Trump. I think she does whatever it is needed to survive. Which again I just don't understand. I'll never understand it. Um, but that that's what she is doing. You know there again, There's there's all kinds of speculation that shady stuff happen. And she won't allow an audit to see if she actually won the reelection to be the state chairman and again. Listen, the guy that does challenging Lizzie's He's like heart backed by the establishment.

Well, I remember when Kelly Ward was running against John McCain and how he used to call her Kim Trail Kelly and label her as a conspiracy kick about there's now Of course, we know from John Brennan and Bill Gates. You know, they do want to spray stuff in the atmosphere to dim the sun or whatever. But so the woman who's running against McCain gets lambasted by him A painted as and not. So what does she do? She gets the Into the GOP, and she carries the water for the McCain's, and you know she's their lapdog.

What you're taking this personally, these Republicans that have run away the Republican Party because it's failed. And it continues to fail, right? Continues to fail. Right? She's a chameleon. I don't know who she worked for what she does, but it just When we need better, right?

The innovations we need to avoid a climate disaster with Bill Gates

"Would like to start where you start from the title of the book how to avoid climate disaster. Which of course presumes that. You're heading towards the climate disaster if we don't act differently. So what is the single. Most important thing we must do. So via caster the greenhouse gases we put into the atmosphere particularly ceo to stay there for thousands of years in. So it's really the sum of all those emissions are forcing temperature higher and higher which will have disastrous effects and so we have to take these emissions which are presently Over fifty one billion tons per year and drive those all the way down to zero and that's when the temperature will stop increasing and the disastrous weather events. won't get worse and worse so you know it's pretty demanding. It's not a fifty percent reduction. It's a all the way down to zero now. Fifty one billion is is a big number is difficult to register so understand that help us. Visualize the scale of the scale of the problem. Well the key is to understand all the different sources and People are mostly aware of the production of electricity with natural gas and coal is being big source. That's about twenty seven percent and there's some aware of transportation including passenger cars. Passenger cars are seven percent and transportation. Brawl is sixteen percent. They have far less awareness of the other three segments agriculture Which is nineteen percent heating and cooling buildings including using natural gas or seven percent and then sadly the biggest segment of all manufacturing including steel and cement People are least aware about one and in fact that one is the most difficult for us to solve the size of the all steel plants cement plants paper plastic. The industrial economy is gigantic. And we're asking now to be changed over in this thirty year period. We don't even know how to make that change right now. So you're correct momentum. Really here i'm simplifying. Is that basically. We need to clean up all of this the way we make things we grow things. We got around economy and so to do that. We need to get to a point where green energy is as cheap as fossil fuels and new materials materials cheap as materials and do ducal eliminating the green premium. So start tell us what you mean by green premium so the premium berries from emission sources. It's the cost to buy that product where there's been no emissions versus the cost. We have today and so for an electric car. The green premium is reasonably moss. Do pay a little more upfront. You save a bit on the maintenance and gasoline you give up some range. You have a longer charging time but over the next fifteen years because the volume is there and the aren't dis being done. We can expect that. The electric car will be preferable. It won't cost more will have a much higher range. And so that green premium that. Today's about fifteen percent is headed to be zero even without any government subsidies and so that's magic. That's exactly what we need to do for every other category now an area like cement where we haven't really gotten started yet. The green premium today is almost double the price that is you pay one hundred twenty five dollars per tonne of cement today but it would be almost double that if you insisted that it be green cement and so the way i think of this is in twenty fifty will be talking to indian same to them. Please use the green products is you're building basic shelter. You know simple air conditioning which they'll need because of the heat increase in lighting at night for students and unless we're willing to subsidize it or the price is very low They'll say no. This is a problem that the rich countries Created that india suffering from. And you need to Take care of it So only by bringing that green premium down very dramatically about ninety five percent across all categories. Will that conversation go well. So that india can make that shift and so the the key thing here is that the us has responsibility is not just two zero out its emissions. That's very hard thing. But we're only fifteen percent unless we through our power innovation make it so cheap for all countries to switch all categories. Then we simply aren't going to get there and so the. Us really has to step up and use all of this innovative capacity every year for the next thirty years what what needs to happen in order to for this breakthroughs to actually occur with kind of whatever the players need to come together well innovation usually happens at a piece of its own here. We have this deadline twenty fifty and so we have to do everything we can to accelerate it. We need to raise The rnd budgets in these areas in two thousand fifteen. I organized along with president lawn and obama. Aside event to the paris climate talks where what prime minister mode labeled mission innovation was a commitment to double rnd budgets over a five year period in all the the big countries came in and made that pledge. Then we need lots of smart people who instead of working out of the problems are encouraged to work on these problems. So coming up with funding for them is very very important. I'm doing through what. I call to energy fellows. We need high risk capital to invest in these companies. Even though the risks are very very high. And that's There is now a break in energy ventures as one group doing that and drawing lots of other people in But then the most difficult thing is we actually need markets for these products even when they start out being more expensive. And that's what. I call catalyst organizing the buying power of consumers and companies and governments so that we get on the learning curve. Get the scale going up like we did with solar wind across all these categories so it's both supplied innovation and demand for the the green products. It that's the combination that can start us to make this change to the physical in the infrastructure of the entire physical economy

"Naked self portrait in the science and the humanities of their cosmos so people who see patterns across nature because of their curiosity tend to be the most creative. that's great. that's fantastic. Answer i'm gonna ask one more questions about jennifer herself when you're when you're thinking about of character like jennifer donahue won the Nobel prize this year. My cameras her. She said. I didn't get to have a ceremony and then i said well you get one next year and she goes no we don't we. Don't get any go to sweden and do the whole modding but one of the things is what is she focused in on now is it is it. Is it pandemic stuff. 'cause we talked a little bit about it. So how looking out at what's happened over the last year we've been taken down digital and advanced. We are eight editing jeans. This and that we've been taken down by a virus essentially just like that because we're so physical but what. What is her outlet on that. Almost the exactly a year ago early march of last year she sent her son andy to fresno by train to be in one a dean caymans you know him first. Robotics robot building competition and at two. Am jennifer wakes up nudges. Her husband jamie and says we gotta go pick up andy because this pandemic seems to be sweating closing book so andy's an only child so when they arrive you can imagine. He's not happy but they convince him to come along and justice as leaving the parking lot they get attacked saying well bought competition cancel and so general when she gets back to berkeley at about seven am summoned scientists fifty of them to meeting as partly in person partly by zoom to say. How are we going to pivot and repurpose what we're doing to fight the corona virus over the past year. She's been using crisper to make home detection kits which you'll get in a few months. Tell me there have been emergency authorized but not yet manufactured where you can just sorta like a pregnancy test have saliva put it in the machine. Do i have covert do. Have my kid have strep throat. Is that tomorrow resurfacing. People will be like steve jobs as i funk it'll be a platform people build their own. Yeah yeah and the platform society. I can use this machine to study your gut microbiome to see if you're reading the wrong yogurt or something so this will bring biology into our homes. The way the first personal computers in the nineteen seventies but microchips and our home and so she's working on these home detection tools. She's working on a very advanced way of looking at just using christopher to kill viruses rather than stimulate our immune system and. She's working on testing technologies. She's also doing what scott asked about which is all right. We've used christopher to cure sickle cell. It costs more than a million dollars that we get it down to at least ten thousand dollars or maybe insurance companies and medicare can medicaid can afford it scott last question so you have your limited to one more person. You can do a biography on will have to consult with. Y'all i actually you know if i don't go back in the way back machine the three or four people around today that have that curiosity across disciplines. Obviously bazo says very interesting milan. Mosque is interesting. But perhaps we're still in the middle of the story. I wanna see how old enough to know you know how this movie. And what's the next real of this movie. I am deeply fascinated by bill gates. And somebody i admire and in. Some ways has been a subject of controversies. That are on there but he has that interest across so many different fields. He bought leonardo's scientific notebook when kodak's last star. Because you know he. You know understands the beauty of leonardo interested in that so with bill gates whether it's climate change of vaccines but also Creating personal computers. Being one of the people did but now doing nuclear energy. It gives me a chance to look many different things. I haven't decided yet gone too far. You know it's a joke but bad. Her son singer songwriter donate fast. Weaning mr mardi gras here because it was closed down so instead of having floats. People decorated their homes as float and people drove by them and my favorite on saint charles avenue was a shrine flow home float to dali with all of music and a big big picture of her and the vaccine. She had helped to find tally. It shows that the human species even times of a pandemic crisis can rise to this challenge is a creator and you know you know the best selling pills the of you know. I doubt best selling songs of all time. People don't realize corroborating really like i will always love you. Yeah that's why she's so rich to be able to give all that money to madeira scott. Any last questions. Which one of those. What do you think of those three. Are you asking me. Yeah hands down. Bill gates right scott hanson. That means that. If i do this you will have me back okay. He is so good as he said. Sharma okay all right. yeah. I truly agree with you. I can get into in lima change. Yeah you got it over. Could we could be in for the howard hughes portion of howard us.

European Scientists Create First Light-Up Tattoos For You and Your Avocado

"A team of scientists in europe have created what they say is the first light emitting tattoo using oh led based technology which is like the kind used in newer televisions and smartphones especially the folding kind. And well of course. This sounds totally awesome. If a bit frightening the team mostly propose practical uses like alerting an athlete when they're dehydrated or indicating when someone should get out of the sun to avoid getting a sunburn and tattoos for medical use are not unprecedented. I know a couple of people who have replaced their medical bracelets for conditions like diabetes with permanent tattoos on their wrists and radiation therapy often tattoos. Small black on cancer patients skin to use as reference marks for the machines and a handful of in the us tattooed kids with their blood types. During the cold war thinking it could facilitate blood transfusions in the case of a nuclear attack. And that's a real thing that happened. I'll put a link in the show notes if you want to read more about it and sort of grim as that sounds to our modern ears. There are still proposals around to people including children with their medical information. A team from rice university. A couple years ago developed fluorescent quantum dot tattoos that would only be visible through a custom smartphone app. At which time they would show a person's vaccination history something particularly crucial in hard hit rural areas. Where people sometimes don't have paper or digital vaccination records then no one's actually a pretty good idea even if it sounds a little big brother that the offset and unfortunately because of that. It's gotten pulled into a lot of covid nineteen vaccine conspiracy theories even though it's a tattoo not in any way an implant a microchip and not in any way related to the covid nineteen vaccines. It's being cited by conspiracy theorists as evidence that the covid nineteen vaccines are implanting tracking microchips into people. It doesn't help that. The original study was proposed by the bill and melinda gates foundation a lot of conspiracy theorists love to say that bill gates engineered the corona virus. Or something. I only bring all of that up in case you hear about it in relation to this vaccine history. Quantum dot tattoo study. So now you can. Debunk anyone spouting that false claim but anyways back to the light up. Oled tattoos in addition to some practical wellness related uses. The team also expects that they could be used for fashion purposes. Like having a light up tattoo or even fingernails and they could even go beyond humans to be used on produce. The tattoos could go on packaging or on the fruit or vegetable itself to identify when it's gone bad now. If you're imagining how impractical it would be to take a tattoo gun to a tomato. I should clarify that. These tattoos are applied more like a temporary tattoo is quoting university. College london the oled's are fabricated onto temporary tattoo paper and transferred to a new surface by being pressed onto it and dab with water and quotes now as gizmodo notes. Quote the idea of personally augmenting. One skin with glowing. Art isn't new either. But previously this has involved bio hackers implanting technologies like led's beneath the skin and the results don't have much practical use besides attention grabbing or inviting questions about why someone would do that to themselves. This new approach to light emitting. Tattoos is easier to apply more practical and temporary without requiring surgery to have it removed and quotes. So how does this one work well. The flexibility of the oled display is key so that it can move and bend along with the human or fruit skin beyond that quoting again from gizmodo. The electronics of the light emitting tattoos made from an extremely thin layer of electro luminescent polymer that glows when a charges applied measure in at just two point three micrometres thick which according to the researchers is about one third the diameter. A red blood cell. The polymer layer is then sandwiched between a pair of electrodes and sits atop insulating layer which is bonded to temporary tattoo paper printing process. That isn't prohibitively expensive. The tattoos can be easily washed off when no longer needed or wanted using soap and water with a current applied the led tattoos in their current form simply glue green but eventually could produce any color using the same rgb approach that oled screens. Us and quote won't professor franken says saline lead author on the study notes that they've demonstrated a proof of concept that d- tattoos can be made cheaply and at scale. There's still a number of kinks to work out. Like normal temporary tattoos these ones degrade pretty quickly especially when more on a moving human and they still need figure out how to integrate them with a battery or super capacitor in the lab. They're currently hooked up to an external power source so oily tattoos might not become into the public too quickly but the technology is there and it will probably happen before

Did Bill Gates Seriously Short TSLA Stock

"Robbed our here and today we're going to be talking about bill gates response to on musk's claims the oregon podcast a couple of weeks. Back that get heard. That bill gates had been shorting stock. We've also got some news on the broader electric vehicle automotive market an interesting response from yvonne on an article from the washington post. And of course. We've gotta talk about tesla stock. It's about wild couple of days. We had the interview yesterday with alex rotter so we didn't get a chance to talk about it. But of course yesterday. Tuesday february twenty. Third tesla dropped to a low of six hundred nineteen dollars per share. That was down more than thirteen percent from the prior. Close then of course. We saw us swift recovery in the market. And from tesla tesla finishing down just two percent yesterday on the biggest volume day that we've seen in over a month and a half with sixty six million shares trading hands yesterday. So i talked about on monday and we briefly talked about yesterday in the interview as well. A lot of this is tied to expectation on interest rates. So yesterday fed chairman. Jerome powell made comments to congress. Indicating the current monetary policy is expected to continue for some time as economic uncertainty remains so not to get too deep into that. We've talked about that. Of course in the past but as far as tussles yesterday certainly was not isolated to tesla. Those sort of concerns were broadly extended to high growth. Stocks tussle obviously falls in that category. And i think the volatility there serves as a nice quarterly reminder that you have to be very very careful with stop losses on a volatile stock like tussle as for today tesla continue to rebound finishing up six point two percent to seven hundred and forty dollars two cents. That compared to the nasdaq up one percent. All right so i up today. I want to continue a conversation that we began a couple of weeks back after yvonne. Musk went on joe. Rogan's podcast for the third time and said that he had heard from people he believes would know that bill gates had shorted tesla. Yvonne brought that up in response to a question from joe rogan on the tesla semi citing that bill gates in a blog. Post a few months back had said that eighteen wheel electric semi is probably would never work so allen's claim here understand. We drawing a lot of attention not the first time something like this has happened between musk and gates last year. He did by his first electric vehicle. The porsche ticon. Which at the time. Maybe it wasn't so clear why he didn't by ordering vehicle up until that point. Well now we might have a better answer for that. But he talked about the decision in an interview with marquez brownlee and it seemed to be a relatively tepid endorsement of electric vehicles gatesville right up ranging anxiety as a problem and elon. Musk responded to that interview. Not necessarily gives purchase of tycoon but those comments in general by saying that quote my conversations with gates have been underwhelming to be honest and so that catches us up to today and then we have launched claiming that he heard gates which tesla now in the last week. We've had both cnbc and bloomberg asked gates directly about that claim. I think gates tone is important these responses so i will play the actual clip. The i wanna hear from andrew. Ross sorkin cnbc asking gates so so you're not sure tesla's stock were clear. Yeah i'm not. I don't talk about my investment. But i think he should be very proud of what he's done. Okay so technically there. He did say yeah. I'm not but it sounded like he was more starting a sentence of saying yeah. I'm not going to talk about my investments not yet. I'm not sure tesla because he interrupts himself and says i don't want to talk about my investments so to me. That's a no comment. Rather than a denial. What's interesting here is his reason saying he doesn't wanna talk about his investments but in the exact same interview. He talks about his investments multiple times. He says quote when i invested in impossible foods or beyond me or quantum scape. I was doing that just to help their own climate. Now it looks like those three will be very successful companies. And so i'll have more money to put into the tough areas a climate like cement and steel and quote. Okay so he says he doesn't want to talk about his investments but then he in response to another question talks about his investments in impossible foods beyond me quantum scape and then how does investments are doing and that i'll have more money to then go on an invest in other stuff. I mean how much more could you talk about your investments. And he uses the first person tense. You're saying i invested. He's asked about bitcoin and he says quote. I don't own bitcoin. I'm not short bitcoin. So i've taken a neutral view and quote so for bitcoin. Perfectly fine to say i'm not short bitcoin. Same question for tesla. oh. I don't want to talk about my investments that we just spent a bunch of time talking about. If you're not going to answer the question at least come up with a better non answer. That doesn't immediately contradict yourself. He has to have known that he'll be asked about that and yet seems completely content guard answer so that was last week if there was any doubt left after that because he did start off. By saying yeah. I'm not before interrupting himself as we said. Here's gates on bloomberg yesterday so we had five days to think about this answering the same question from emily. Chang yuan has in the past claimed you shorted tesla and i wonder if there's any truth to that Well you know i think. Test us on amazed seen company I wish you know own. Been more on the long side. But i it's it's great And you know i have. Lots of relatives won't tassels Helped by for them. So you know nothing. But positive thoughts about tesla role. Okay so if the answer to the cnbc question was a bit of a flood. There was a clear opportunity to just say. Hey i'm not sure. Tesla was jor tesla and again gates passes and he sure doesn't look comfortable to me answering the question. Belief is that it looks pretty clear. That bill gates was short. Tesla who knows if he's still is it'd be surprised but come on. How are you going to be all about climate change and then short the one company that's doing more than any other company on earth to combat it. If you don't think it's a good investment you think it's overvalued you can just not invest in it. No one has any problem with that but too short it push the stock price down. Make it more difficult for tesla to raise capital. That's something else entirely.

Bill Gates & How to Avoid a Climate Disaster

"It's great to have you on the program again. This extraordinary book. And i want to start here. I want to start in two thousand six because you talk in the book about having an almost eureka moment in terms of realization and. I think that there's still some people in this country that haven't had that realization. I wanted to understand what brought you to this place in two thousand funded. The gates foundation and started traveling to africa in seen only the lack of electricity but how the weather is getting tougher for the farmers there and that led me to learn about climate. I haven't spent time on it. But i was kind of horrified to learn that over time. It's just going to get worse. And worse. and the sources of the missions are are very very broad and so that in a brought me in to think about actually do a ted talk in two thousand ten five years before. I did the pandemic talk in the book. You warn that. The economic damage caused by climate change will likely be as bad as having a covert sized pandemic every decade. What do you think the role of business should be in solving this business you know. Businesses are paid to think ahead and They consumers will be looking at the carbon footprint of the companies. They buy from They will be looking for business to be part of the dialogue about shifting these systems around and so climate climate is big the younger generation. I think their energy already very high. But i see that going up Even in a bipartisan way and so measuring Footprint being open about that and being willing to devote resources to getting those numbers down over time i think no matter what business you're in that that will deserve a lot of attention but can the problem be solved if big businesses and microsoft and apple and google and others have have announced very ambitious plans. But they are all idiosyncratic mean. They're doing it on their own. Can it work. Everybody's doing it on their own or does it effectively require regulation and laws over time. You'll you'll have regulations that will drive the market for green products

So don't forget to look but who is elon. Musk and how does he lawns story began. Well he is a visionary entrepreneur and the co founder of paypal and tesla motors as well as the founder of the new space x program which is very popular to day his astounding success has given rise to comparisons to the uniqueness of howard hughes and the tenacity of a henry ford but he did have an often difficult childhood like most of us kids his own age made fun of him from his own descriptions the years were lonely and brutal alon is quoted as saying they got my best friend to lure me out of hiding so they could beat me up and that hurt. That's when i realized that they were going to go after me non stop. That's what made growing up difficult for a number of years. There was no respite. You get chased around by gangs. These gangs tried to beat the insert. Swearword here out of me. And then i'd come home and it would just be awful there as well but not all was wasted. This difficulty cultivated itself into a relentless work ethic a never ending tenacious vision of the future. You see enron was born and raised in south africa and he spent some time in canada before finally moving to the united states thin and the united states. He was educated at the university of pennsylvania. A very good school majoring in physics. That's when ilan started to excel and experiment to soon. Become a serial tech entrepreneur with early successes like zip to an x dot com. He took on two majors at the university of pennsylvania but his time there wasn't all work with a fellow student. He bought a tin bedroom fraternity house which they used as an ad hoc nightclub will. Musk graduated with a bachelor of science and physics at all as a bachelor of arts in economics from the wharton school for ilan. Physics made the deepest impression. He is again quoted as saying and somewhat giving directions to boiling things down to their fundamental truths and reason up from their. Musk was twenty four years old when he moved to california to pursue at phd in applied physics at stanford university with the internet. Exploding in silicon valley booming. Musk had entrepreneurial visions on his mind and dropped out of the physics program just after two days but in two thousand and four. Musk joined to engineers to help. Run tesla motors. You've all heard of tesla motors right. Well this is where. Musk was integral and designing the first electric car. There's no doubt the electric car is the car of the future. But his first car the he designed was the tesla roadster as we are all aware of the tesla has become one of the world's most popular and coveted car brands and is still growing in popularity in the united states and in many different countries tesla and the electric car are taking over but we must never forget about musk's early interest in reading philosophy science fiction and fantasy novels and how that played a big role. I mean a huge role in the inventor that he is today. It is reflected in his sense of idealism and concern with human progress. He aims to work in the areas he has identified as crucial to our future specifically the internet. The transition to renewable energy sources and space colonization and. Ilan has been all over the media. Making three podcast episodes on the joe rogan experience while the first one in which he smoked. Marijuana was pretty funny but in a maximum article. I found this elon. Musk's third appearance on the joe rogan. Experience podcast the genius. Tesla and spacex. Ceo did reveal intriguing plans for a floating tesla. Musk revealed that the long awaited second generation tesla roadster could have a space x package that would allow it to hover at a limited altitude above the ground. Something that we have never seen before with all these new inventions floating around. Is it any wonder why everyone is watching. And curious about ilan's next big thing. Well at tesla fans are awaiting the cyber truck which will make an appearance at the end of twenty twenty one and the exciting numbers are in for ilan's wealth elon. Musk started twenty twenty with a worth of about twenty seven billion dollars and was barely in the top fifty richest people then in july of twenty twenty. Musk past warren buffett. The great billionaire to become the seventh richest person in november. Musk raced past bill gates to become the second richest person. Musk has gained more wealth over the past twelve months then gates his entire net worth of one hundred and thirty two billion dollars and according to cnbc elon. Musk just became the richest person in the world. With a net worth of more than one hundred and eighty five billion dollars alone recently had a new marker for his wealth and that is so cool because of all his inventions and his time spent caring and wanting the united states and the world to move ahead has made a name for himself. There is no doubt an increase in tesla's share price pushed. Musk past jeff bezos of amazon. Who had been the richest person since two thousand seventeen. You see musk's wealth surge over. The past year marks the fastest rise to the top of the rich list and history but why because he is investing in the future. It marks a dramatic financial turnaround for the famed entrepreneur. Because he cares about what happens in our future so with all his wealth experimentation and knowledge elon. Musk is our future and for those. That are young enough to dream about being an elon. Musk it must start with your curiosity with reading and learning more and more about new and different things and that i want for you and your children now and in the future.

While going to plant base isn't a viable option for the poorest 80 countries, Gates said. I do think all the rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You'll get used to the taste. I love this How these people are just telling us what we're going to get used to, and we're going to like You'll get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they're going to make it taste even better over time.

Is the Inflation Trade Back in the Market?

"We start off tonight with the reflation trade. The ten year yield hitting a one that year high one point three percent does that mean the economy is staging a healthy recovery or that inflation is making a comeback sooner than we all thought. What could that mean for the markets guy. Why don't you open it for us tonight. First of all. I mean bit whereas bitcoin say fifty thousand becase technology problems. He better technology than bill gates. At this point. I mean he gets no pass from me. I offer him no quarter number one number two. It means sit. The market is clearly anticipating this economy opening up in a major way in the second half of the year and that's a great thing for the economy. It might not be such a great thing for the stock market and although the market seemingly likes rates rising right now where to get point and curve where it does and my senses. It's about that one and a half percent and listen. You've talked about a ten year. Yield that went from fifty three basis points in august two north of one and a quarter now and it seemingly short period of time. That's a tremendous move. And i just think it's getting started. Banks are going to like resource trades going to like it but inflation is here mel. Make no mistake. You heard it from kraft heinz. You're seeing it in soft commodities.

Bill Gates Discusses COVID-19 Vaccines and Where We're at Right Now in the Pandemic

"I know you've talked a lot in the past couple of months about cova. But i'd love to get your ideas of where we are right now at this point. Besides you being attacked. I assume that you just try to ignore that. The mets information could hold us back at certainly reduced mask wearing and it might affect people's willingness to take vaccines. The good news. Is that even these variants. The rich countries by the end of this year should be able to achieve vaccination levels including probably a slight change to the vaccine to target the variants. But this thing should be over in rich countries by the end of the year. And if we care about equity and don't want the disease coming back will also help developing countries. That's an area. The the gates foundation has been very involved like setting up factories in india that are dedicated to making these vaccines for developing countries. So we're going to have another tough two or three months although the numbers will come down somewhat the seasonal effect will be in our favour. Because i'm sixty five of already. Have my first dose. On the only time. I've ever been glad to be so old me to not yet for me. But yeah and meanwhile people are impatient and making trade offs about okay. Can we put school. Which in most cases we should be able to do that. This is you know it's been a disaster more for the poor countries them for the rich country. That has been a disaster here too. I would say absolutely if you were running a post product meeting on the launch of a vaccine product. What needs to change in order to right now. I was talking to someone who's trying to get my mom. She's eighty five to get a vaccine. It was really hard. I don't want to jump lines of ously And it was sort of like it shouldn't be like trying to get your kid a playstation or something it just this this just distribution seems beyond screwed up What would you do in a product meeting. If you're bill gates running a product meeting here well there should be a cdc website that federally run and the government chose not to do that where you would enter your information like your age and co morbidity and your work and your availability and location and it would direct you to where you go to get the vaccine and ideally. That's stomach out any paperwork now. You need a foam center for people who don't have internet connections or are comfortable with that but israel. You know they did it right. Microsoft worked with uk on the back end software. That's actually gone quite well. So the logistics in the next month or two the some very good biden people come into this and states look at the states or countries. That did it well. The logistics won't be limiting will be either supply limited or demand limited in the. Jj vaccine single does particularly good against severe disease it still has some significant efficacy against the south african variant or even the variant of the uk. So thank god. We have j. and j. coming into the arsenal to complement pfizer moderna. And then in the right way we will target astra zeneca and we'll have nova backs in those five at least in terms of use. Fda approval will be pretty much the whole

How to Grow Your Business by Replacing Yourself

"Today we're gonna have a little bit of a conversation about Taking things to the next level right so if any of you have experienced a something just some level of growth inside of your personal life or career or business you start to realize you get to this point that you can't do it all right like there's there's a million different things going on every single day whether you're a manager at you know where you work or ura you're actually business owner or you run a family with five different kids or you run a local group or a team or anything like that. Like there's there's a nine jillian different things you have going on at all points of the day the week the month year like planning things like it's just it's it's too much it's a lot right and the thing to remember. Is that whether you have your own small business or a job or your oprah winfrey or whoever the hell you are you have the same amount of time as i do like. We all have one hundred and sixty eight hours in a week. Like bill gates the president. Like the bump down the street like we all have the same amount of time right. So how is it that we all like. There's certain people that achieve that seemed to achieve so much more like you're just standing there and all of them like how do you get so much done right. And then there's people that are just seemed to be in the same position day after day week after week year after year and just like just kind of tread water like how right you know you know probably different people along the spectrum but there's there's ways there's just so many different examples i can think of that. There's it's it's you can either go down this path of super productivity and be burn out as hell or you can go down this path of not doing anything and hating your life right. But there's a third option that not a lot of people think of and there's this option of actually doing the productive ineffective things well not burning out while not actually making yourself feel more stress and anxiety while actually living a happier in. I don't wanna say carefree life but just a less stressful existence right and that's kind of where the title of this show comes in into this concept in this procedure of finding ways to replace yourself right finding ways to systematize yourself. Now there are many of you have a business or you have a high level job or whatever it might be like. You're familiar with system. You're familiar with the processes in place that needs be consistent to achieve a similar outcome for every person every time every time a sale comes through every time a fulfilment task needs handled like whatever the case might be. But have you ever stop to think about how you can make that happen in your own life in your day to day existence. Right i was actually. I've been reading a book For the second time again called high-performance habits by brennan bouchart. highly highly. recommend this book It's it's a life changing book and we got it for like seven bucks on like it was super cheap to But burnham short. He's he's like man he's the personal development guru. He's like i would love to have him on the show one day. If you ever listen to this brendan like hit me up. Let let's make this happen. It'd be it'd be awesome But just to kind of synthesize. What kind of taking away. From that. As i go through the second time. Is this idea that you as a person or a system right you as a being not only inside of your Physical being but inside of your business inside of your career inside of your relationships right like the more you can become a system and become consistent. The better things are going to get for you right now. When we take this conversation. I really want to apply it into production inside of business careers making money that type of conversation right because one one thing i noticed I went through my journey right with building the the runway wage app with building. The run. your day podcast here with building. Run your day app with with doing other client apps for other people in clients that i brought on in my in my other business like there are so many menial repetitive tasks that come in with stuff whether it comes down to sales whether it comes down to lead generation when it comes down to social media posting content like there's so many things and then people start this business is oh i thought it was gonna be so easy and you're like but i have all these different things to do and now i gotta get sales now. I gotta do all this and it's like dude. You understand that like you're you don't have time for all this stuff like you don't have time for all this stuff. When it finally came to that realization my life changed forever right in in in in tandem with the performance habits. You know philosophy in book. I started to realize okay like if i can figure out ways to replace myself or systematize myself i can then take that menial task that takes me ten minutes to do every single day and get rid of that ten minutes in offloaded onto something else or a bought or a machine or an automated process in that ten minutes every single day right and this is hard like this is. This is a really hard concept mentally to grasp especially for people like me. Maybe like you. If you have your own business you started your own business because you want control of everything right like you i. I used to always think that i would. I would let control like release control of things. But i find myself being that typical type of entrepreneur mindset of like. I can't let this go like. I need to do everything i need to make. It's my baby right and it. It's hard it's hard especially maybe it might be easier if if you're in like a career type job or your manager or something like that where it's not really your your ass on the line right but when you find ways to automate things when you find ways to systematize things. I'm telling you like there are. There's such of level of freedom and efficiency that comes into your life and not only that but like your mental wellbeing right and a couple of examples. I'll share with you. Here are a couple of pieces of software that i use in my own personal life. That have really really helped me one is called. You might be familiar with this or or you might not be. But it's called. If this then that right i f t t t If this then that in it's an app that you can actually download in. I'm telling you like it. It is really really cool. You can get automated Spreadsheet entries you can do you know. Save money automatically you can do like. There's a whole bunch of things that i don't even know it can do that. It can do right. I do think like it used to be mostly free. I think now they have a paid subscription where you can only get so many of these things free but like basically right like if you get a response in g mail from a new person. It automatically saves their contact information. A spreadsheet or. There's like things to just help. You live easier in actually save those menial tasks that suck up your day all day every day right because it kind of goes back to that i matrix. I've talked about before. On the show. With stephen covey being sucked into that black hole of the knot important. Not urgent stuff right. The facebook stuff. The email filtering Scrolling through social media just like all this different shit right and another piece of software. That i've actually really really started to use in like is called zap ear It's pretty popular one. You probably are familiar with if you do any kind of online business or anything like that Maybe you're not so really if you're not familiar with zap here it's kind of the same type of thing if this then that But man even that like it is. It saves me so much time in my business for automation and sending automatic emails and collecting lead information. Letting letting me know. When i got a sale you know through The various channels my businesses and Just automating stuff like it really It really comes down to because like you gotta think like okay okay so some of these are paid subscriptions right like you pay. I think if this that's like five dollars a month and you get so many tasks to be able to do this right and you see you be sitting there like well. Is that really worth. You know the one thing. I use it for whatever but you got also think like is the five dollars or ten dollars a month whatever. It might be worth the time that you are sacrificing. Doing those things

Jeff Bezoss second act

"Now. That jeff bezos is leaving his role as amazon ceo. Everyone's wondering what the future holds for one of the wealthiest people in the world. In fact this doesn't mean bazo stepping out of the spotlight at all. It's actually more likely that his spotlight will just be getting larger joining me to discuss. This is recode teddy cypher. Hey so does this. News about basil's mean less pressure on him overall. Or any less scrutiny. I think you can make a good argument. That scrutiny on basis himself is actually going to increase even though he's no longer. Ceo of amazon. You know this is somebody who has become a symbol in some ways of of one extreme in american capitalism He's now the second wealthiest person. I don't think that's going to mean that much less scrutiny. But obviously you know he's gonna fade right. When amazon is called a testify on capitol hill. it probably won't be jeff bezos. Who's gonna be there it'll be successor. Andy jazzy but bezos is going to be under a lot of pressure to do good for the world with this money. Which is something. That basis is going to have to navigate so i don't think he's fading from from public eye. He's going to be executive chairman of the company. And now he's going to have to answer questions about him as a person in a way that he has only really begun to over the last couple of years. Basil's actually has reputation for not sharing his money. He hasn't signed the giving pledge he hasn't promised to give away all of his money in his lifetime. Do you think that he'll finally start stepping up and becoming a big time. Philanthropist like some of beers bill gates and otherwise so basis over the last few years has started to part with more and more of his fortune as scrutiny has been increasing on him. You know the biggest commitment in charity last year from anybody was ten billion dollars that basis set aside for climate change research which is a huge amount of money. He also a couple of years ago. Set aside two billion dollars for a homelessness initiatives and for a series of montessori preschools. He's developing so. I think you could definitely say five years ago. That he was not on the scene but now he he's emerging on it and look. I mean there's still a lot more money to go. I mean two hundred billion dollars is hard get rid of it really is but he is As becoming more and more famous. I think you see him starting to understand that you can't really get away with being so parsimonious just as a lot of pressure rummy whether whether that's Motivating him or you know. His belief in the causes motivating him. There is indisputable public pressure. When you're the richest person not just one of many which people now. What about his space boundary. Gms bezos has said in the past that he wants to spend the majority or could spend the majority of his money on blue origin. He founded the company a long time ago. Can you remind us what the company is. What has been doing sure so. Basis has been selling a billion dollars a year of amazon shares to finance blue origin and blue origin is actually two decades old. I think we forget that this has been around for way longer than his philanthropic projects Blue origin is Spacecraft company that's trying to commercialize private speech travel It's frequently said in the same breath as spacex. Which is the private space travel company financed by a different tack. Billionaire the only person who's in the same stratosphere wealth as him Hummus elon musk. So musk in. Bezos are two billionaires who are at the forefront of private investment in space now. I'm not an expert on everything Space related but generally blue origin is seen as lagging spacex. Now is that because betas an financing and enough orient spend enough time on it if that is the case then you gotta feel good about Future given that basis has a lot of money leftovers. We just talked about and that he is going to be spending more time on his hands to to maybe dig into this. So you've got the philanthropist bezos the star man and potentially base the media mogul any insight into what he wants to do at the washington post. Yeah those are the three Three doors jeff as is gonna walk through over the next couple of decades. He's only h fifty seven so he's got a long time to go. Basil's bought the post. I guess now seven eight years ago in what is now seen as as a bargain deal. Probably you know he gets high marks for overseeing the post. It's you know he's given it a lot of runway. It is now profitable You know it's obviously facing uncertain. Future like all big media. Companies are after the trump era can the heap subscriptions coming At a same clip can the key public interest in their work. As high as it's been over the last few years oppose searching for new editor which is going to be a process that i imagine basis will be involved with in some capacity and look he. He has said that this is part of his work to defend kind of american democracy so I don't know if he's an invest more money in the post now profitable. It's privately held but he will probably be more available for phone calls if anyone has a neon complaints about washington post stories

Jeff Bezos to step down as Amazon CEO, Andy Jassy to take over in Q3

"He have probably heard by now that jeff bezos is stepping down from his role. As ceo of amazon will be transitioning to the role of executive chairman. This will happen in q. Three of this year at which point. Aws ceo andy. Jesse will become the new ceo of amazon bezos. Wants everyone to know. This is not a retirement in a letter to employees basis. Wrote quote as much as i still tap dance into the office. I am excited about this transition. Millions of customers depend on us for our services and more than a million employees depend on us for their livelihoods. Being the ceo of amazon is a deep responsibility and it's consuming when you have a responsibility like that it's hard to put attention on anything else as exact chair. I will stay engaged in important amazon initiatives but also have the time and energy. I need to focus on the day. One fund the basis earth fund blue origin. The washington post and my other passions. I've never had more energy and this isn't about retiring. I'm super passionate about the impact. I think these organizations can have amazon. Couldn't be better positioned for the future. We are firing on all cylinders. Just as the world needs us to we have things in the pipeline that will continue to astonish. we serve individuals and enterprises and we've pioneered to complete industries and a whole new class of devices.

Yes the pr message from across the board is that basil's is still going to be involved with cool things at amazon things like new projects. New products strategic initiatives. that's very common for founders of these big companies. Say twenty years into them. Eventually you only want to do the fun stuff. Not the dirty stuff of running a huge operation day to day. Same thing happened. To larry and sergei at google they transitioned to their moon shots and other baths before drifting out the door entirely. I'll point out. That bill gates stepped down as ceo of microsoft. Thirty three years after the founding of that company amazon is only twenty six years old by comparison and yet gates was only fifty three when he retired bays fifty seven. I'm not saying fifty seven old by any means. But i didn't know that that was his age. All's i'm saying is if you're the richest man on earth depending on the day the sort of thing makes sense around this stage of life right. I also think it's worth pointing out as several people have been pointing out and as you'll hear again in a second that if we define the tech oligarchy as apple google amazon microsoft and facebook facebook is the only one of the big five to still be run by its founder.

"Jeff bezos is stepping back. Twenty seven years ago. He founded a company called amazon which proposed then to become a bookstore on the internet than wild idea. Was that you would shop for books without actually going somewhere to look for them. It was so new. That news articles had to explain how this giant bomb for would even work of course amazon sales just about everything now and this summer as will transition to executive chairman to focus on. The long-term amazon is an npr sponsor which we cover like any other company and npr. Business correspondent. alina saliou because here to do just that good morning good morning. Were you surprised by this decision i was. We're in the middle of a pandemic. it's not a thing you expect to hear in this moment basis. Less to say how. It's always day. One at amazon says line meaning always act like a startup and we were joking yesterday with a colleague like ten. We say. now it's date to amazon in many ways. Basil's has already been axing kind of like an executive chairman kinda less running shop day today. More thinking big visionary thoughts years into the future. He says he wants to do more with all his other. Major investments like the space company blue origin.

Business over the years has become more elusive as a public speaker. So we will be interesting to see if jesse style changes as he become.

Corwin take when covert 19 arrived in the U. S. A year ago, Bill Gates had already been warning about a global pandemic for years. We're not ready for the next epidemic. He sounded the alarm and a now famous 2015 10 talk queen to do simulations. Term games, not war games. Now in its newly released annual letter, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is urging the world to prepare for the next global health threat as though it were going to war. The gates is say stopping the next pandemic will require military style readiness costing tens of billions of dollars a year. But they say that's a minor expanse compared to the current pandemics. Global cost, which they say is already $28 trillion.

Melinda Gates discusses annual letter from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

"Bill Gates predicted the current pandemic. Now he and Melinda Gates are calling for a global effort costing billions of dollars a year to prepare for the next one. Let's learn more about that from Cuomo's Corwin Hate in the newly released annual letter from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation the gates and say it is not too soon to start thinking about the next pandemic. And how to mobilize the world's resource is against it. Bill Gates has more than a little credibility on this point, thanks to his Ted talk more than five years ago that warned a pandemic was coming and that the world was unprepared. He then called for the creation of military style strike forces to mobilize against any nation health threats. We need a medic reserve Corps. Lots of people have got the training and background who are ready to go with the expertise and then we need to pair those medical people with the military. Taking advantage of the military's ability to move fast to logistics and secure areas. Now the Gateses are renewing the call for this kind of preparedness, noting it will likely cost billions of dollars a year. The gates is say they like everyone want to return to normal, But one thing they hope never returns is quote our complacency about

Refounder: The Essential Longevity Plan for Every Small Business

"What we've all heard the term founder and many of us our founders of small businesses. But what is a re founder and can you be one of them. Help us with that. Is patrick colletti. Who's a leadership at organizational cultural expert champion for founders and author of the upcoming leadership leadership. Book rebounder patrick. Welcome to the show. Thank you invite me here so been surviving during this pandemic. We've been making lots shifts Founder should you know finding the opportunities and being candid and honest about what needs to change. And as emily it's been It's been terrific so we all know. When a founder isn't a lot of us are founders. What's a refunder. Well refound herships the same john as founders though is expressed in different ways so let founders visa visionaries they take a different approach But they're the turnaround artists. These men and women who reimagine existing but broken structures and aimed to improve them. So i like to think of them. In a way as very practical magicians taking the raw materials of the company a culture or even life and transforming them into something more meaningful so put more simply be founders used their magic to create something better from something broken and founders typically start and founders two to draw a parallel but a difference they really start with nothing a create something so refunders. Really take something that's broken and make it better so our refound. There's always someone from the outside or kenny founder. become a refunder or they can't because as they say you can't read the label when you're inside the jar. I absolutely believe that people can change. So i would say while it is not that typical that founders then become a founder. I say they are where when given the right stimulus whether it's a crisis Something with their business with their family. Something dramatic happens in other book point to the fact that he to change that they change in history shown that that absolutely can happen so give us give us some examples of history where outside persons coming been rebounder and actually found gold in something that perhaps the founder had given up on shirt yet. This is it's actually quite common. You know there's a. There's a life cycle for those enterprises. That are fortunate enough to grow passed. A few million dollars inevitably after a few years. Some form of entropy occurs and so whether it's the founder that gets them stimulus that recognizes something needs to change more likely somebody within the business typically visit trigger now as you know with small businesses Most of them don't crush that two three four five our they do the need for change. Change die becomes pretty critical and so virtually any business today. That is over. Ten million dollars in revenue has had to make some pivots that all would point to having founder in the business. Now that may be a middle manager. That's pointed out that the product line needs to change that could be a co founder Or it may be found as well. Yeah it's interesting because you see very few businesses. They're able to go from nothing to billions of dollars. I mean the michael dell's of the world. The bill gates the world's although bill gates had partners to typically the skills that you need to actually get something started are not the same skills to grow it past at least in my case past ten million dollars it also indicates that there are not a lot of one companies right and so while you know what what gets you to. The party isn't the thing that will necessarily keep you there. It speaks to the fact that you know you may be one trick Business and you may have one. Particular product speaks to an audience. But that doesn't necessarily create a real thriving. Enterprise that's just a product you know. It's it's interesting to me because what you're saying is the refounded necessarily a partner or owner in the business. It's just some kind of person that works with you. That's a catalyst absolutely so founder doesn't need to be an owner in the business. In fact when. I speak to college students or young professionals one of my encouragements to them is every employer wants this. Every employer may not provide a fertile ground for but once they once you share on these your founder characteristics. They want you there. You're gonna be the future of the business and there's go ahead. Yeah there's really four steps in so one could argue. There's four kinds of founders instead of behavioral models that are that are linked to this. But i think the easiest way to think about it is every founder follows four typical patterns in the first one is a refunder. Isn't afraid to take silver. Look at hard reality and when you think about those folks that are on the front lines and maybe do in hand to hand combat in sales part of that has to do with ignoring problems sometimes and ignoring the knows that you get to keep going another day and so that may not fit well with somebody who is focused and taking a sober look at a hard reality. And that's not. Take a shot at salespeople at all Salespeople are very important. i'm a salesperson. We all need to sell. We're going to be successful but that particular behavior taking a sober look at hard realities. Takes a very special kind of person in personality. The second step is identifying. What's broken and you think about that. In terms of your strength finders. The level of conscientiousness that takes imprecision to find what's actually broken. And then to to take a phrase from the book which is taken from william faulkner to kill your darlings because candidly most of us to have too many options and it's difficult to close doors and so if you can be wise enough to kill your darlings and selectively focus then you go to the third step of of being founder. And that's where you imagine a davis in bold new possibilities and even if those possibilities seem remote it just for a moment juxtaposed that with step one which is not being afraid to take a sober. Look hard realities those people in particular. Think about your conscious. Cfo or an accountant that may fit into that category than imagining audacious bold new possibilities. And so that's the third step and then the fourth is refunders spring to action and the key here is execution and so we all of her execution is key. But there's there's an important asterik here. And that is that they have to execute by creating better realities for people those in their communities in the world large because just executing to get it done that may work for a short period of time. But unless there's a just cause a real purpose that re founding effort walton fail in. I don't really want to sell short. How difficult this is really for. A founder because founders are used to doing it themselves right so have you found that founders may not want to refound your because they say i can do it. I can turn around or they don't wanna work with someone because they don't want to miss something's wrong absolutely image part of the human condition and so therefore it's just a reflection of the organizations institutions that we run whether they're not for profits for profits. So yes i mean i think this is part of the the human condition and and really i think the bigger question is how large of an impact do you wanna have. Do you want to have a comfortable life with a very small business. That teeters on the edge or do you want to run. The kind of enterprise that has global impact or create flourishing for hundreds of thousands of people. We're talking with patrick colletti. He's the author. A book called founder. I think it's difficult for a lot of founders. Patrick because there's so much ego tied up in their business that change is difficult. I'm running my next book. Is called change masters and how hard it is for people to actually change. Unless they're in incredible pain and they have no choice. I'd found that sometimes the best opportunities arise during a moment of crisis and it might be a giant burden on your heart broken relationship or just a corporate hot mess. But it's in those moments that i think you can trigger a great refounding

"The poor countries. We've only made factories just for ourselves and so hopefully in the next week or two will get. Four billion to by those vaccine. So that's my hot topic right now is that even though ninety nine percent of this money should go to help the US if we set aside that one percent from a humanitarian point of view strategic point of view and just southeast point of view of the disease not coming back. That one percent will be phenomenally well spent. Well, let's add national security into their which. People really underestimate how much of this stuff is preventative that causes so much more money down the road if we have to go to war with somebody but these acts of goodwill are hugely instrumental in keeping US safe aren't they and the I'm driving stability in these countries, which is a win win making sure that there's factories outside the US as well as inside the US apps the part that we're missing right now, and that can be done just by setting aside a modest amount of money. Is there any fear of that tack getting exported? Let's say that you could make it in China for ten cents on the dollar will that be a roadblock? Well, actually the factories in India not so much in China. Will be part of this global coalition because they have very high volume factories there, and so the Pharma companies are for the first time allowing something day invented to be made another companies factories and I'm very happy with that cooperation they keep saying to me well, we'll the US fund the procurement and I say, Yeah Yeah we'll take care of that but. This may be our last chance until into sometime next year because the election will get everybody distracted. So this bill, we're going to try our best to get into this this bill. Okay. My last question, and it's totally self serving is I love that the dock starts with you getting arrested for speeding. Do you still let going fast? Yes but not to the same degree I have this Porsche tight can now all you have one it can accelerate like nothing else. So it's a little tempting I. Do you like cars. Do you collect any I'm not an expert like a lot of people in my very first car was a porsche nine lobban. We in our family has. Overly Nice cars but this tight can you know as soon as I get it because I'm very big on climate change it's electric. The Tesla's fantastic car, but this one is kind of a special deal for me. Yeah they're incredible. I've only seen pictures of it, but I'm a host of top gear. So I think I'm going to get to drive it soon and I'm really looking forward to me like adding the porsche racing history racing field the handling if that gets made with what this insane acceleration of Tesla has produced a sign me up I'm in. Yeah. They do a good job on the synthetic sound effects so. It doesn't sound like a Porsche but they make a sound like the Porsche did you keep that first nine eleven because you know those things have skyrocketed in value?.

They're very odd drawings very. They're not very realistic the giving pledge, which is so incredible is it hard for you to ask people for their money or is that come easy to you? Well, the giving pledge you're not giving me any money. You're just committing that over your lifetime you'll give the maturity way which if you have massive amounts, it shouldn't be too hard so. Some people turn me down in terms of joining the group. It's a group that we're learning together. Encouraging each other to do more to do it earlier. You know particularly in the pandemic, there's been a lot of talk about, okay. What is the government not doing? Well, how do we step up and fill those holes you know? Income inequality is incredibly real. It's a big concern of mine but at the same time, I'm not on board with objecting to billionaires and especially with what you've done and what Rockefeller did you know there's a freedom that you have that is so valuable. Again, you don't have to do something that's popular. You don't have to do something that you need political support for your free to tackle. Any problem you want. Would you agree to? There's great value in billionaire so long as there is generous as you in buffet and he's other people who've signed up that, I, it is of great value to us. Absolutely and there's lots of room to collect more taxes from very rich people and still have enough that philanthropists can go out pursue things that government's not risk oriented or doesn't know how to assemble the right kind of team. So philanthropy, even though it's a small part of society's resources, I do think it's quite valuable. But I do separate that from the idea that he they should make people like me pay a lot more taxes not. One hundred percent maybe I'm outfits to say that but. What's the number because I think I'm pretty open to more taxes, but there's certainly a number when I heard seventy percent is like, no let's do for me I. Don't want to go thirty cents on the dollar number for you well, somewhere between fifty percent and seventy percent tissue get to very high levels even a very high levels something like seventy percent is doable and we've had historically the US actually had these very high taxes so. You could push to far, but there's a lot of room to collect more. Would you say that? Are you a centrist? Very much yeah. Yeah. Me Too I feel like we're UNICORNS at this point in fact anytime I say something both sides hates me and I'm like, Oh, I see why people are disincentivize to be a centre as both sides eight you not. So Lonely Center when you think you know we're going to over-regulate underregulated over-regulate. Regulate but you know democracy has been self-correcting. So just making sure there's enough technical skill to help the well-meaning people is the part that I can help with. So as you've been more and more immersed in in covert and and trying to stay abreast and it's almost impossible, right? Because it's hourly that the something's completely negated we were working upon. So it you got to be flexible to be as immersed in it as you are. But as this vaccine becomes available. What should our role be as a country? Is the richest country in the world? Well, the US historically on health things like this like smallpox around occasion or polio or a type Larry. Has Been Phenomenal, and you know President Bush started a thing called pep far, which is got eighteen million people alive on HIV medicine. That's very bipartisan. This situation weirdly were so domestic focused that we're doing a good job funding the research development to create a vaccine, but we haven't stepped up to help fund that back scene for.

So the youngest probably has a much different experience as your child than the oldest yet she got more time at the younger age. Of course, you're less interested because it's your third, right?

This is something that you bought at some point. Yeah. That's right is at one book or is there many? Well, he has several all of them except for this one are in European museums and don't travel. This is the only one that gets out and students around the world have a chance to engage with also you loan it, it travels nine months a year, and then it sits. In darkness the other three months. First of all, why did you want it? Well, it's kind of weird that somebody can own a Davinci I. mean he was the renaissance man he figured out things that nobody ever figured out his breadth of understanding was incredible. There's a great Walter Isaacson Book about him. Oh, I'll read that is a great writer on all the stuff. His Steve Jobs Book is probably the most popular it's just called jobs exactly. Yeah. That's one I read. Yeah. So I told Linda I'm going to buy a notebook could choose like. Notebook. Like. not this notebook so it's it's weird to own it but it it's just so brilliant is he if you had to list or rank the people that you were most enamored with as far as being intellectuals whereas he in that list well I did he pushed himself to understand things and the Broadway he did that he's up there. You know maybe twenty people who self motivated asking themselves constructive questions not giving up. That's inspirational. Do you need an Ip -S for did he write was some piece that inverted? It flipped it and did something else to it he wrote upside down and backwards but now the. Is that he did. I`Ma left hander and silence have ink on my hand and if you write like Davinci did then you'd never get inc on your hand because you're Monica Okay you're GonNa love this. So I requested for Monica.

So with that said. You have worked at this point for years on this project to my understanding. You know you get all of this. You put so much time into the relations and getting the permission in an years in you get a phone call this as trump is ended one second ago I assume very little knowledge of what the hell he just ended. In your reaction to me says, everything about you I least read on your face which was like, okay that's the next Erdal. Yeah. Well, we have a new strategy. We're going to build it here in the United States even in the best case, it's about a three or setback, but I've been spending time with the Department of Energy in the Congress about how we get it built. mean. Basically clean energy. There's three. Ways could get salt we cut up a miracle and storage. So you you can store all that renewable energy that may not happen. You've got vision, which is this tear power nuclear plant, and then you have a fusion which is even harder but one of those three at least one has to work or else this whole clean energy thing will be nearly impossible. So we should put tons of money behind all three to give ourselves the best chance. I have such limited knowledge on it, but I guess I had always heard that the kind of fusion model is just science fiction or is that not science fiction? Well, they always say it's it's been fifty years away for the last fifty years. So the technical difficulty of solving the problems of vision is probably the easiest of the three. It's almost just engineering and societal acceptance for the Fisher path to work the other two paths require breakthroughs. But there's lots of crazy optimistic people who are working on the storage miracle or the fusion miracle. We should get behind those people in parallel. Let's nerd out for one second. Why is the storage issue in in your estimation harder to mount? What is the hurdle there? Well, every battery ever built in the history of the world couldn't store a month the power for Tokyo, and so it's unnatural to be able to store that much energy and the physics constance about how. You improve that are very daunting. I've lost a lot of money in battery companies. And The batteries for electric cars, the amount of storage, just like fifty times less than for this grid storage. So we'll solve the electric car problem. There are people like..

Maybe even at times, which is such an asset to have in the moment I would say it's most detailed is for people who haven't seen it or don't understand you know I think you bravely I think you're isolated enough protected enough to be able to be one of the few people who can do this you say look wind and solar is awesome. It's great. It should be exploited as much as we can. But we are GONNA have to have a source of energy that is on demand when we want it. That's just a fact. We cannot build enough batteries to run Tokyo, right? It couldn't be done, and so what are the other options in sadly its nuclear right and then but you have the this crazy again, I think kind of Naievety to go what do people hate about it? Well, the hate nuclear waste and they hate that they meltdown. So let's build one that doesn't meltdown in that runs on previously created. Nuclear waste. It's awesome. I am so grateful to you. I'm not fluffing your pillows. We do this three blessings thing in the morning with the kids I tried to get them to list three things. They're grateful for you make my gratitude list once a week I literally like I'm so grateful that that Bill Gates Chap is up there in Washington, figuring out how to give us nuclear energy. So with that said. You have worked at this point for years on this project to my understanding. You know you get all of this. You put so much time into the relations and getting the permission in an years in you get a phone call this as trump is ended one second ago I assume very little knowledge of what the hell he just ended. In your reaction to me says everything about you. I. Least read on your face which was like, okay that's the next Erdal. Yeah. Well, we have a new strategy. We're going to build it here in the United States even in the best case, it's about a three or setback, but I've been spending time with the Department of Energy in the Congress about how we get it built mean basically clean energy there's three. Ways could get salt..

"Yeah. Now I do not have the intention or objective to blame you for anything. I'm literally curious about your feelings about having started tech revolution. There's no one to point two more than you in. Now we're I don't know what do we thirty years into it were thirty five years into it. You know there's social media and I'm sure you have opinions on social media and this is just crushing like Oh man well, without the thing I did that doesn't exist and is this getting out of hand? Well, certainly, anything that dramatically changes society is going to be used for bad things. You Know Henry Ford has to say, yeah, we're running over a few people. You know. This is good. and kind of netted out. So there definitely are things like. People use encrypted communications to do criminal acts and the falsehoods are there. Leading that certain feed based architectures make people spend more attention to false things than to the boring true things and you know I'm an optimist. So I think, okay, let's be creative because overall it's so positive. Let's figure out how to at least minimize some of these negative. So they don't get out of control while and again I would imagine all of you are incentivized to handle it before some bureaucracy decides to handle it for you and doesn't really understand what they're doing. It's tricky. For car safety the US have to figure out. Okay. Seatbelts and I really regulate it. There will be some things about how these tools are used politically. Should you be able to do micro targeting I actually don't think so you know as far as ads yeah. I don't think certainly when anything is political though yeah, it's really not that visible what you're saying to this person versus what you're saying to this other person. And, the idea that the government should be able to see what's being sad under the right circumstances people fight against that. But I'm someone who thinks that eventually the law should be able to see some of these bad acts like they used to do with wiretapping..

"Was His financial wisdom clearly, you knew you were going to have to have a big understanding of economics and market and all that stuff or was there something else about him that? Attracted you to him well, it's reputation that he bought stocks that were undervalued and I didn't think of that. Is that relevant to me? The fact that the way he did that was to have this broad framework for economic value. And how competition worked so that when I first meet him. He asks me about why can't IBM wipe you out? Well, that's a brilliant question because IBM has all these resources they can see that I'm I'm better than them at this one thing why can't they just go hire people and nobody had ever asked me that in the right way before. And so I He's getting me to explain. What it is that makes us special and why it's so hard for somebody to come after that. And then I get to ask him. Okay. How do you see A had for different companies? What is it? You're looking for and it's not some silly volume chart thing. It's the fundamentals of their future profit stream. You know he wanted to buy undervalued stocks and I wanted to revolutionized personal computers and empowerment but our view of the world in terms of WHO's talented, who flawed, how do you mix people together even now we're talking every week because the world is so askew in this interesting way that it's predicting. Okay. What's going on is more interesting than ever. So it was very profound and. We were lucky that we ran into each other. He's five years older than me, but you know he's so much fun. Yes I do think it's really interesting what you just said you can learn about yourself by answering a question that someone asks right that maybe you haven't asked yourself. So it's like you may not have prior to that been able to define your strength. But when he ask you why can't IBM do this then in answering at, discover your strength and know what to double down on Yep being forced to teach something you can really tell do I understand this thing or not. Right, I got to teach Warren about Microsoft. Yes. So it clarifies you're thinking the watt is there any father figure element to it or was it way more appear ship? Like did you enjoy the approval from someone like him? Absolutely. So we're kind of peers and he's kind of like a father figure and it's got both wonderful aspects like we go golfing we're both terrible. So that's a here. We, we have a dollar bet on the first person to get a par and. Special rules if you go eighteen holes with no par who gets the dollar bills. So that's Right. But. Then again, when something's complicated and troubling than the depth of his experiences so valuable to me..

"Then you have vaccines also sanitation understanding that getting human waste away. Those are the three things that have allowed the population to grow. Now fortunately when we get wealthy enough the growth comes to a plateau. But Yeah, vaccines are miraculously here's a guy like you dedicating all your wealth asking all your friends, the dedicate, all their wealth. To help on one side of the equation. Aren't we responsible for anything like recipients of all this? It's the Asna your country can do for you part it's like come on guys that makes sense in Nigeria, but that does not make Santana's the country. This is unacceptable to have this viewpoint. We see with measles this pandemic. Commencing people that the vaccine once it's really been approved to save, it will benefit other people. The same way mask wearing does and yet there's this pushback that in the US, some of these things shouldn't be political have become political. Well, if you happen to see someone did a they mapped the highest levels of anti vaccine. Against whole foods locations in it's it's it's perfectly correlated. No I'm not gonNA say a whole foods causes anti vaccine, but it is ironic that it is a part of this natural lifestyle. That people are to some degree romanticizing if they think that. Are. No. Good. And you get that anti GMO, which is another. Yes. Holds back our foundations ability to make improve seeds for the developing countries because even though it doesn't matter for the US or Europe for these countries, it can solve the starvation that still a problem there. Well, one thing about the anti vaccine that I found interesting is it's often in pockets of very affluent areas and that just goes to show again, privilege luxury the luxury of thinking this isn't it. We have the luxury of growing up and going to school where three of the students didn't have crutches from polio. We're not seeing that because that vaccine were Zach. That's the irony of health is that you're very success breeds, complacency. Yeah and. They. Canary in the coal mine that comes back. It's either measles pertussis where you'll get a small community that all the parents of talk to each other and then if measles comes in, it can spread because you have a bunch of kids who aren't vaccinated.
