"Radio app. It is time for us to go behind enemy lines. Talk a little bit about the Carolina Panthers, former NFL db and host of Believe in the Carolina Panthers on the belief podcast network. Tyrone Poole is our guest. And Tyrone. We appreciate you joining us here on K Away news radio. How are you? I'm doing great, Joe. Joe. Thank you. And Effort for allowing me to be on your show being back home. Actually in Denver. You know, I played the Denver Broncos when my Shanahan was there, and Ray Bob Ray. Bob Rose was D coordinator and, um, actually, it was when I left the Denver Broncos that they're doing. The Patriots picked me up and we had a I had a great, uh Season with the Broncos lot of man to man and be a better shake felt like I'd come in help the wind. Back to back Super Bowls, which we did 38 39, but it's great to build you guys show appreciating hellos all of the Denver Bronco faithful. Hey, I gotta ask you some man when when you are when you are watching the game nowadays and you see something that is out of place. It must hit you quickly that it's wrong. And you must. You must immediately go. Oh, my goodness. They gotta fix this when I when I talk about this one thing What is it for? The Carolina Panthers. But, you know, football's football. Always tell people stars with the old line. It starts with the D line. So whenever your team is not winning, always say, Hey, you know what? We gotta fix it in the trenches, and if we could fix it in the trenches, then this is Officer line. You're gonna get your quarterback time to throw the ball. You don't get your receivers an opportunity to get open. If it's the D line, and they're not playing well. And of course, your secondary were always good at that front step. We're only good at the front four, actually. So if you start seeing problems on the backing, and you probably want to go all the way up to the D line is almost like a link in your feeling where the leak and where you find the water dropping is not where the problem is because water travels. So if you look, you'll probably find it somewhere else. So that's where that's why sakes. If you haven't problems offensively, check office in line If you have a problem defensively, check the D line. So with the Panthers, you know whether if they can't throw the ball to the Bridgewater is having a bad day. Then I'm gonna think about the office and lie. They need to fix that. They've got to give him more time to throw the ball. If if they can't run the ball, the old line they gotta block. They got a Open up. The holes are still there blocked longer. Same thing with a deep defensive lines. So that's what I see when I watch the game when you talk about the Carolina Panthers this season, obviously, uh, you know, Christian McCaffrey, a local kid here in Denver, played played high school football here and that obviously went on and had a great run at Stanford before he came to the NFL and has had tremendous upside. This is the first time he's been injured in his career. Yeah, he is again. I get shut out to a dance. Uh, admit, Kathleen, you know I played with, uh, rocks near. You know, we have Brian greasy a quarterback Shannon Sharpe out there. So, uh, L Wilson at linebacker. So, you know, Christmas, Kathie, Um you know his dad a lot of knowledge, something sure Christian McCaffrey has been around football. He knows how to handle injuries, and I'm pretty sure it has done a great job with Helping him navigate his injuries from high school to college and now being in the pros, So you know Christian, he's It's a game of injuries. There's a game of you were not Finish this game never left in. It's a season like you started meaning healthy, so it's just all about how to handle and get yourself recovery. Why? So you can go back out there and try try try to play at 100%. You know, I actually have DJ more on my fantasy football team and I have been watching his production this year after 12 games. This guy has nearly 1000 yards, but then Robbie Anderson is right behind them with 9 12. This is quietly for check down Charlie and Teddy Bridgewater. This has been a breakout year for this receiving crew over here and then you know, you still look at what they're able to do with Curtis Samuel still getting him involved? This passing attack is a lot more dangerous, and I thought it was You know, I don't think they actually have reached their potential. Um, I think coming out in this year in the 2020 season, they were ranked probably in the top. Six of top five is one of the most explosive possible explosive offenses. Uh, again got, uh, DJ war. He was supposed to be the number one gal course. He's their number one draft pick and the body Anderson that comes in and he doesn't phenomenal job looks like he's the number one receiver, and then you have Curtis annual. You know, it's a speed guy, and I don't think these guys have actually played a complete game when I see a complete game where You see either D day more scoring, or you see, Robbie Anderson scored are using Curtis Fanuel school. And so if you can, if the Panthers can ever get those three guys to play At the same time. Oh, man. Come on, man. I'll tell you too much. I'm watching these guys and I'm telling you, it, Z You know you're right. They never really click at the same time. But if they did, that could be dangerous. But you know, you watch the running back position, and Mike Davis man. He's looked really good..

"Now i'm your host telling scanlon. Thank you for joining us. We're talking business now with bob. Fish the author of fish tails the making of a millennial baby boomer. He's recognized as a pioneer in value. Priced fast fashion retailing. Bob rose to the rank of president at casual corner and he's the former ceo of route. Twenty one a retailer of women's casual apparel and accessories. Ceo route rue21. Bob took it from bankruptcy to a fast track winning streak that included a hot stock. Ipo building a national network of twelve hundred stores and a billion dollar plus valuation. Bob earned the reputation as disruptor in the retail industry. And he's added again as he works to expand what he calls the millennial baby-boomer brand and mindset in this episode of talking business. Now bob talks with us about his new book and what baby boomers still don't understand about their millennial co workers welcome bob. Hey welcome kelly. Great to be on your show i am dying to know what is a millennial baby boomer. Everybody always likes to at that. And i'll be happy to tell you. I saw millennial. Boomer i have now the registration and the intellectual property from millennial baby boomer and to no one else can use it. I own it and i'm certainly going to enjoy using it. Yeah it's a rate brand. Yeah so to me. I was really looking forward to getting that a couple months ago and really. I'm really technically the first of many. Because it's not like i'm the only one that really is there because it's really blending of the millennial and baby boomer pattern mentality and life style and it's not what you are who you are as a person and so to me. It's really something that i've only been able to. Whether early in my career or life relate to people older than Just remember we were all twenty five years old once. Oh yes yes a long time ago so but the point is that you know so so to me. Baby boomers were twenty three twenty five and you you know you keep that title. You know even if you get older. And the thing is going to happen with millennials generation leaks though to me though it's really the blending of different generations and some of their characteristics. And i really relate well to people that are younger than me by a lot and even and people my own age and so to me. I looked at it and felt that when we talk about you know going further talking about bridging the gap and mutual entering it was all like millennial baby boomer is really i can be relating vote. What you're basically saying is that a lot of times. We apply labels to things and they really get in the way. You know in this instance. You're not defining millennials or baby boomers by their age. it's really more about the mindset to talk about how when you put those labels baby-boomer in the millennial labels on people. How do they get in the way of how people view each other and how they interact in the workplace right. Now is the bit crease shaping. Happening out there. Kelly about okay boomers and there's t-shirt okay bouma. Have a terrible day actually did a blog a month ago with four and i did not just okay boomer i did okay millennial of have a terrible day t shirt and it. Neither of that is what i want is having a terrible day. Try not to think stereotype with people are but everybody has characteristics. I mean you know to me that you relate to different generations and it's really the blending of it and so to me what i look at. Your millennial are people that i see are very creative and have some great new vision. And they don't always know how to take the vision to fruition and make it happen and that's where the baby boomer comes in and so you know there's stereotypes where millennials or take like the baby boomers getting in the way of their jobs and they can't get ahead play. That was never how i looked at. People is whether you twenty-five or whether you were forty five doing the best job and really understand the company and understands what we're at but it's getting people to understand that and so so that would i see as a millennial you know and now the baby boomer gets worried saying will the millennials gonna take my job and i said no. I think you have to be open. To changing things up getting out of your comfort zone i formed a millennial advisory board kelly and you know not only for the book originally started out to help me. Put the book together but it's also building. My brand millennial age boomer and and going after that and so i have a group of people that are millennial generation x. Them baby boomers together. And it's great. Somebody's young people. Get me out of my comfort zone and and help me reinvent the recreate yourself. You know so to me. So it's how you get millennials which will talk about the do think but it's also baby boomers and to me. Look i see something happening out there and the wheel wave right now going on this because you know when i started i made my decision to go with forbes with if four and adam witty who is the president of forbes book they saw a big white space opportunity of millennials and baby boomers working together and he didn't realize to thinking that t took the baby boomer's just you know a mentor mo from lenny. Continue baby boomers things. And that's what i find every day. And i i find that it's great to have people getting me out of my comfort zone and reinventing myself and one other thing. Is that the people today. Who at twenty five or thirty kelly. I'm going to live to a hundred. Oh yes and the people people who are just born going to be spry eighties working and they're gonna lift hundred ten. That means you're going to be working eighty years of your life. Potentially you know. Maybe i'm not going to be other. People are and so. You might have a couple of professions and people could say to me when i left route. Twenty one if the building it into the largest specialty store retailer in store count in america. I guess you're retired. No i was looking to do other things. I always want to be around. People and i thought mentoring people would be great and building. Relationships would be great but people are gonna be living a long time so so they need to understand that from the in how to work together. You actually took the next question. I had right out of my mouth. Which was you or the successful retailer. A rue21 you a totally. Reinvented after taking it over. Really recreated it to where you're pretty much the founder of the reincarnation of the store you could have written your ticket after you exited was by. Did you really besides the reasons that you just said Go a little deeper with that. Why did you decide that this was where you were going to make your next mark. Why this.

A VA campus, The Veterans Administration campus if you're not familiar with it that is a huge gated property just west of the 405 federally owned healthcare compound for military vets. Run by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Many of La's homeless veterans receive services there. To some folks actually stay on the sidewalk near by This eye catching encampment only popped up in the last few months. It's a road, 30 tents and all the tents were supposed to be a line. There also have flags on the left hand side. Dean leave is an army veteran. I served 86 through 89 under Ronald Reagan Problem. Five tonight Field artillery in Fort Carson, Colorado. Says PTSD from a sexual assault by another soldier led him to substance abuse and eventually homelessness. It's chaotic is living on the streets is, Dean says, This encampment has some military style order. We have a standard operating procedures. We have fire guard. We have security watches. A lot of veterans have a lot of different stories. Each one has their own individual. Sorry. One thing that many share is the feeling that being a veteran and being homeless is Well, you know, the saying adding insult to injury. Yeah, really gets you down your spirituality after serving the country and I'm not complaining, but by all means I haven't had a gratitude this long and water in the complaint list. The end of the day. You know, I didn't serve this country It hurts, And for some of the veterans here that hurt his coalesced around to cause what they see is decades of negligence when it comes to housing homeless vets. On the west L A. V, a campus. And in that respect, this encampment is meant to draw attention. We're standing our ground as a peaceful protest. Against what? Exactly, And why now? That story, it turns out is only the latest development in a much bigger saga, one that involves a prime piece of real estate, a corruption scandal a pandemic in the plan to pick up the pieces. KCR W's Anna Scott takes it from here. The story really begins. 133 years ago in 18 87. Hey, we told you it was a saga that year, a wealthy family donated the land That's now the campus with the stipulation that it had to serve as a home for military veterans. And for a long time it did at one point after the Korean War between four and 5000 veterans lived there. But by the 19 seventies, Thie started leasing out the property for all kinds of things. They maintained a hospital and other veterans services but brought in a dog Park Baseball stadium, even a parrot sanctuary at one point Meanwhile, many veterans lived on the streets. You know, in the military, you never leave a fallen comrade behind on the battlefield. Why would we leave them behind here on American soil? Bob Rose Brock is an Army veteran who lives in Brentwood. And every week for the past 12 years he's protested outside the gates of the West via dei. I met him there earlier this month. Today is our 648 consecutive Sunday and that's what we're trying to do is to get housing for our veterans. On the other side of that fence, where they belong. It was legally deeded. And we've got veteran sleeping on the sidewalk here. Now. Bob is not the only person to take on this issue. A decade ago, some homeless veteran sued VA. Officials over how the West campus was being used. Some of those non veteran related leases were deemed illegal and cancelled. The parrot Sanctuary has gone, for example. Leader. It turned out there was a bribery scheme going on at the campus, Another VA official and a guy who ran private parking lots there were sentenced to prison. In short, It was a big, ugly mess. But from the fallout came a new vision for the property. Four years ago, the unveiled a proposal to bring the campus back to its original mission and transform it into a community with more than 1600 new apartments for homeless veterans. So happy ending right?

"Who will be without this lifesaving service that your dad needed and he said Okay Hasten Oh see what you I'll see what we can do breath and that was it and so with that I went back to my hotel Flew back to California the next the next morning and at that point I really didn't know what to make. I mean hearing someone in DC. Saying I'll see what I can do was leaving to go on going away on vacation and to you to his credit he By the time I had arrived at SFO next morning. I had a letter under of apology from the head. Medic year saying We have approved three and a half million dollar a three hundred billion dollars wire transfer. It will be in your bank tonight. They realize they made a mistake and they said the other remaining payment would be made in the coming days after we got a chance to to process them so we we had actually scheduled So this is a Tuesday morning Wednesday morning. We had schedules. It's Wednesday before Thanksgiving this thanksgiving So the next morning schedules a town hall meeting with all of our employees who didn't know what was going on. I think they might have had some sense but they understand how dire the situation was and so we had townhall meeting that I would do periodically to give the updates on the company and the plan was to use that townhall meeting to explain how Medicare would put us out of business and and So we had to tell him. Meeting people were waiting anxiously and we were able to fortunately go in and say we are. uh-huh I just gave kind of standard update we had. We purchased the Bunches Turkeys. Three dollars. That we had had TREADED COSCO so we got a good exactly and so we weren't often able to do you even like you know gestures like that for employees of hit them. Seventy Five Turkeys for employees is a big deal and in the other thing it did. In retrospect was calm that they understood that we were position to to buy Turkeys for employees. All of a sudden certain things couldn't be that bad. How bad could they be? We couldn't be going out of business unless we were buying the Turkey so It was sir that was the turning point and then after that Medicare reactivated our numbers and and things were fine but that led to the decision. This was four years after tweet started the company so we had a great run. That then was the really the catalyst for us to say you know what what we've dodged the bullet when we've got new you know those four well-funded publicly traded companies were still competitors and they were still hungry and ready to take over our little private this market that we created the FDA had still launched. These is drugs that had the potential to eventually replace warfare so our long term prognosis was still uncertain And we were sort of from the business perspective at our highest point at that point so it was at that point. We said it's time for us to to sell signed us to exit the business. How cain so? And how did you go about doing that. So we We engaged in investment banker And we considered several different options. There the one set of options was to sell to one of the large Zhou publicly traded companies who were just getting into the business and relooking for you to acquire market share. We considered the gold standard. If I can say that Amongst the different of the companies that were competing partly because we were in the longest I was most intimately involved with working with Medicare to establish the national policy so I understood the policy as well as any of the companies are we did and and so we considered all of the current competitors in the market is number one we looked at other companies. That might be considering entering the market and then we also looked at some private equity firms. That might be interested in buying. The business is four for cash flow purposes. which would have given us an opportunity to sell part of the company and still remain in the company and then sell it or do an IPO a few years later so and so how? How did you ended up being acquired? So we We spoke to the top two or three candidates including largest competitor and and they had the most interest to acquire us of for several reasons. One was opportunity for them to become overnight. The market leader us to they were having some operational problems at the time that we were not fully aware of and so they were very interested in our management team. I was really fortunate to have. In addition to the woman who was co founder A team of individuals that had grown up in the business Rose was instrumental in keeping that group of individuals Intact during the period of uncertainty rose grows in many cases was kind of the face of certainly of the nor family to to these Mo- most of them were women. Yeah we had a large. A female workforce headed. You do that rose. I'm curious about that. I was just too I think I was the calming presence in the office because I didn't yeah I had a job as the office manager. Okay so you were working in the business. I was working in the business but I wasn't doing anything that ever required hired a deadline or To run a meeting or anything like that but I would go around and check with all the ladies. How are you doing today? What's new with your family? How are your children children so for them? I think it was. Oh I'm sorry him it was. Wow the boss. His wife will talk to May a for me it was just an if she's not. I mean if you had been real anxious and worried. Yeah exactly stirring things up it. It could have created created much more uncertainty caress. Yeah correct but I made friends with a lot of the women in the office. You know some of them are neighbors. Some of them were our children's friends moms so it was an even wonderful responsibility. You guys must have felt when you were forty eight hours away from this Nuclear implosion implosion. What a great story? So so you sold at some point. How long did it take for that process to go through the vetting and you just just about a year out by a there were the companies? were very interested in acquiring so we spend in probably five or six months vetting the different types of companies so doing a road show talking to the interested parties parties Our investment banker started to solicit bids and we considered I guess we had three three three offers for the business. Four offers courses including a private equity firm. So we opportunity to to do some. You know sort of Auction action earring or the investment. That's the role. The thank investment banker did and for the reasons I was referring to earlier are our our largest competitor which was a publicly traded company was in the best position to pay the greatest premium and in and also afforded us an opportunity to stay on board for a couple of years afterwards to to run. The companies actually merged two companies emerge ourselves with our competitors. There's I was named. CEO The two companies and we were given some incentives to stay on board before you completely completely exited. It was about two and a half or year and a half and then they kept me on board as a strategic advisor for the two or three years after that but at that point it was I was pretty much I was British down after about eighteen months we had done what we set out to do. demerge the two companies turn the turn. The other company Arkham former competitor around in terms of their operating practices and put them on a straight path and And did well I mean the company that acquired US dwell in acquiring us and I think we did well in being acquired so it was one of those winds for for everyone and what year was the acquisition completed late. Two thousand nine and and You know because of the contingency payments that extended into two thousand ten and NKOHSE eleven. I found you on the ink. Yes thousand nine your number eight fourteen in the inc.. Five thousand. Yeah that was that was the following year the way the ink Inc Five thousand works is. You're you're not eligible trouble if you're acquired during the year so the year that if you were to look at Enforcing we're not listen. Two thousand dozen ten which is based on two thousand nine.

Two thousand eight baby came in and a direct threat to our business because because to the extent that people were no longer using warfighter Kumaon. They didn't leave. They would need our service so that was a that was kind of longer tune. The longer term have existential threat that we were facing but still a very real. That was the second third threaten in really the most serious. This one was as we were as we were expanding our business we move to a brand new facility. We got beautiful new facility. Forty Thousand Square feet beat the other side of town and in the process of moving from a smaller facility to a new facility. Medicare There's Initi- straight straight of snafu I'll say a with Medicare and that that caused them to stop paying us they lost our our our change of address notice and it seems like a trivial matter but it wasn't trivial matter huge. It's your primary or was it the only it will i. It was the primary source of it was ninety percent of our cash flow is tied up with Medicare ninety percent. And so Medicare they were. There was another changes. Going on at Medicare etiquette. Time and Medicare said okay. We've gotTA stop paying you because we don't recognize this new address we've end so until we can come out making make an inspection. We're going to turn off the cash flow and they said it's GonNa take a six nine months to come out and do an inspection folks and so at that time again at our business was growing one hundred percent a month among Year in year and and every new patient costs us another thousand dollars so are the the more successful we were the more cash we needed. And so our cash demands hands were ever increasing. Our competition in the short term was increasing because we had large public companies coming in to compete against us and our primary primary source of ninety percent of cash flow disappears. And all the shortly after we mortgage both homes and put other primates Ason. Yeah and then all of this happened. Actually I It happened the first week of September. Two thousand eight the second week of September two thousand eight financial crisis really the meltdown began with her brothers and start Bear stearns et CETERA. Era and so the idea of going out and getting other financing the hold us over it was not to be had. I mentioned the credit cards that we had At that point three hundred. Seventy five thousand dollars of Credit on the credit card which by the way we paid off every single month in fact sometimes he paid off if multiple times per month in order to keep the cash. Coming so We weren't we didn't overextend ourselves from a credit card perspective but overnight American Express US limited reduced our credit limit from three hundred seventy five thousand dollars to fifteen thousand dollars holy cow and so over night that just disappears and so for the period between mid-september until the middle of November We didn't I know what was going to happen. Things got very very very serious. We got our members of Congress. Involved keep in mind. This was also in the middle of the two two thousand eight presidential election so the sort of individuals we might have been able to lean on with the former Bush administration. Frankly they were. They were on their way out. You'll bomb administration at that point. Hadn't yet taken shape the so. There was a lot of uncertainty Jones who who to go to within Washington side from that Rosie UNICORNS and rainbows. Leabeau's so so what did you do. How did you get over that Was it a hump. was eight years sweat. What did that trajectory passes story involving the The Medicare part of it hung one of one and she sheer what you were thinking about that time and you know the time bureaus around November of two thousand eight after the presidential election but before Thanksgiving Up On that. Yeah well all I am. I had planned a trip to Israel with our church. They were doing a trip and I think I signed up in the spring so April or may today. The trip was in October. Had already paid for it. I was like but should I go. Shouldn't I go think we made the decision that I should go. Oh you know because I should go and it was. It was Israel everyone always needs to go to Israel but things were bothering me and I knew we could lose both of our houses. I knew we could lose everything but I wasn't Sinn afraid for some reason I really wasn't afraid I just knew. Somehow everything would work out. I didn't know how it was going to work out. I just knew that we were always protected. Because the you know the free credit that allowed the financial crisis to happen was the free credit. We were kind of floating on all those years. So that was that was good for us. You know we had gone down to the bare minimum of expenses ince's so we would be okay there all right if we had to sell our house okay. You know that's what would happen. But I think Bob knew more of the details. Maybe and I know. Maybe I shouldn't say that I knew the details but I also knew in going through there. Were a lot of other little things that happened with the business that he didn't share that when he was faced with some things like oh my goodness tennis. Here's a dead end. He would sit in his office and he would think any would think any would think and he would come up with the most ingenious way to get over that add hump that that barrier was there for a reason right it was like Oh okay and it would turn out that yet. The barrier that caused him to stop and come up with a creative solution to fix that problem which seemed like a dead end in front of you on both sides. IOD's was because we really needed to go in another direction and the direction was better than we could have imagined. Couldn't see that at the time exactly not at all all because when he started it he wanted the or the I think the beginning of the business was. Let's get the device paid for and then we're good good we're golden but the better model was to get a service model where we had to place the device and you get the ongoing annuity stream you pay for the device vice over time but then as long as the people were testing and we could keep them healthy you know. It was a much better models ongoing income ongoing income so there were are four or five things like that. That happened to us with the meters with the competition and there was always a bigger better solution so I didn't know how this was is going to turn out. I think I was just I was okay. I don't know how I can say other than I was. Okay and I knew we would be okay and were you aware. I mean he had to be under a lot of stress at that time. Yeah Yeah had a lot of stress. How did that play out in your marriage? I always felt supported. I really did and I think I think I I'm I don't recall any ever holding anything back. Not I mean not anything material and if I held the things back it was just like it was a trivial detail. You need to know right but it was and it was. Yeah I never I never felt what say is I never felt Out at the need to Shield rose from bad news or risk. Because as I knew that I needed her support when we were making these critical decisions. Sounds like you know. I think it's important to realize we didn't wake up in the middle of two thousand eight and say Gosh Rush. How did we get several million dollars in debt? Feel million yet through through through through the loan so the SBA loans ought to be personally guaranteed and collateralized with our home saying funds and retirement funds.

"On. We're halfway through the opening round of this intelligence squared US debate. I'm John donvan. We have four debaters two teams of two fighting it out over this resolution ten years after the global financial crisis. The system is safer. You've heard from the first two debaters and now onto the third arguing for the resolution Jason Furman, former chairman of the council of economic advisers under President Obama, Jason Furman. Take something like derivatives. I'm ten years ago. They were the wild west you could invent them. You could customize them you could just do them between any two people. Are there too many of them are they too risky now? Yeah. But they're much more standardized. Most of them have moved to what's called central clearing houses where all of them go through a place, much more transparent. We used to look really carefully at community banks to make sure they had enough capital. Some of the places we didn't used to look at Lehman Brothers. I don't know if any of you remember that it hasn't been around for a bit. But we'd barely examined g and we're looking at all of those places in the financial system. Now, maybe not enough maybe not as much as we should. But now systemically important institutions get designated as such they fall under the Federal Reserve Neil gave you three arguments. I want to now talk about two more. The first is international when I was in the White House once. We got through the worst of our part of the crisis. I spent the last six years of the administration losing far more sleep over. What was happening overseas? The euro zone crisis China, I'm not losing sleep anymore. Mostly that's because I'm not in the White House anymore. Some of that's a little bit better Europe a lot of reforms Neil talked about here of happened there. So their banks are also holding more capital Europe, also regulated banks each country had separate regulation. But now across the euro zone. There is a single supervisor. They've also created the European stability mechanism seven hundred billion euro in addition to Europe, the IMF has more resources than it had going into the crisis and something we used to worry a lot about and we've forgotten entirely as oil the United States is now the world's biggest oil producer, we produce the majority of the oil, we use something like the types of recessions, we had in one thousand nine hundred seventy three nine thousand nine hundred seventy nine aren't on anyone's top worry list states has a lot more debt than it had a decade ago. I wish we had less debt. I don't think that debt is going to constrain us in fighting. A crisis in some ways. Our fiscal situation has actually improved expected health spending has gone down the deficit in Medicare has gone down. The measure of how serious or fiscal situation is what your interest rates are like an interest rates now are much lower than they were before the crisis financial markets. Expect them to be more likely to fall then to rise, and that will give us a substantial amount of space to do fiscal stimulus. If we need it. Our banking system is safer are nonfinancial system is safer. Our international system is safer monetary and fiscal policy have just about as much room as they had before the crisis. So overall the system as a whole is safer. Thank you. Thank you. Jason. That motion again ten years after the global financial crisis. The system is safer and here making his opening statement against the motion Kenneth Rogoff economist and professor at Harvard. Kenneth rogoff. When you have financial crises, the next wars usually pretty different than the last were they don't always come from the same place. It's certainly important to prepare for what happened last time. But I think a really critical element of the system is the leadership. It's when we had the financial crisis most famously Hank Paulson, Ben Bernanke, Tim Geithner a very strong team. And and they had support President Bush, even though he was a conservative and wanted kept tight budgets. Well, except when he cut taxes he said he wanted to have tight budget, but he got up and said, we're going to do something like a four hundred fifty billion dollars stimulus Obama later increase that that was very painful, but the point is they had his support we have excellent central banks now, but you need more than that. When you have a financial crisis. You need the support of the president you needed the support of congress tarp which was. Very important part of dealing with the national crisis. That was really something. Congress struggled through. Mario is a central banker was famous. You may have heard this in Europe. We will do whatever it takes. And believe me it will be enough. When he said those words, it was considered absolutely watershed in the European financial crisis. I simply don't think that we have safe pair of hands at the moment, not just at the highest level. But the team I'm sorry to appeal to this. But it's the world that we actually live in even if we had competent technocrats, I'm not sure they'd be less than two. If you go across the pond, the UK's the other big financial system there like committing suicide right now in the UK, and they're not even facing a real problem. I think it's I think it's clear that you know, in general the problems deeper than just the person's it's something having to do with populism. Our ability to do fiscal policy is limited fiscal. Policies actually, not the sterile thing. A textbook not just whether you cut taxes you raised government spending whose taxes what do you spend on? I don't have the impression even in the United States much. Lots of other countries, we're going to do this in a very nuanced way. That's going to work well as far as monetary policy. Goes the tools are very limited. And we have learned something we have learned that a lot of these creative tools. Don't really work. Very well. I do concede that the banking system narrowly defined is safer, but the financial system is not necessarily safer financial system as a hold. It gets gotten bigger. The IMF reports two hundred trillion dollars in debt and using Bob's analogy of a car on a hill. Your brakes may have gotten better, but you're a much higher hill than you were in terms of our financial system. Interest rates are very low. But what if they're not what if global interest rates? Why not we are not tuned to deal with that? At the moment. There's so many things that would blow up if you feel safer about anything right now, you're juryman. Thank you, Ken Rogoff. And that includes round one of this intelligence squared US debate. Now, we move onto round two and round two is where the debaters address one another directly, and they also take questions from me. And from you our live audience here in New York City. Our resolution is ten years after the global financial crisis. The system is safer. We have heard Neil coach, Gary and Jason Furman. Make the argument that the biggest banks are safer their capital requirements are higher and encouraging and rational that we have learned things as a result of what happened in two thousand eight in the aftermath how to use tools, then they look overseas and they look at Europe. And they say the Europe has learned a lot that we have partners who we can work with you know, what they're doing the team arguing against the motion. But Rosencrantz and Ken Rogoff, they say, it's not just about the banking system. It's one of their most important arguments that there are several other financial markets. Those markets are getting bigger they are essentially black boxes as they have always been computers running the system that lack of human hand on the throttle. Big banks, which are now. Now forbidden from trading for their own accounts. They say that banks are so intertwined that. If one of them goes the rest of them are right for falling down like dominoes. Do you trust those in charge these days, they ask? And finally, they look at China, and they say that China is a much bigger player and is not such a cooperative partner. What if it starts what if that fire starts, do we have the tools to respond to a global financial crisis? So to the arguing for the resolution because you lead so strongly with the notion that the banking system is safer, they conceded that that that's not the whole story. It's much bigger than that. You spoke first. So if you could take that on if you look at many elements of the financial system outside of the banks, it's also safer derivatives, many derivatives now go through a house where it's not just in the shadows one Bank to another Bank. But they're centrally located. There's a lot of transparency securitization is way down money markets are much safer than they were fifteen years ago. So you're right, there are still risks out there. But if you look at the whole financial system outside of the banking sector on most dimensions, it is substantially safer than it was ten or fifteen years ago. Now, we're not arguing that nothing can go wrong on almost every dimension. It is safer Rosencrantz to respond. I think what our opponents are addressing is the last war. Well, if the same crisis unfolded again today, we'd be better equipped to deal with it generals are great at fighting the last war. Nobody predicted the financial crisis last time. And I don't think anybody's predicting or can predict. What might trigger it next time? It could be a political event that could be something in Iran could be something in China. I don't find very satisfying the argument that we're better at fighting the last war still the failure of one big Bank can bring the system down. We haven't really addressed the interdependence of financial institution. Okay. Let me let Jason Furman jump in on that. So what Bob rose, and Chris I'm hearing him saying, no matter where the next crisis comes from the tools that were developed at the last time may not be relevant. Yeah. I mean, we've fought hundreds of wars. This isn't some random little footnote that's been the source of a lot of the financial crises throughout history, and whatever goes wrong anywhere in the system for banking system has a lot more resources than it had. I feel better about it. No matter what the problem your response to their point that the banking system is now a small part of the overall sector is actually no it's still pretty. Central its central to the financial system, the banks borrow money, very short term, and they lend it long term and that mismatch can create a problem because it's a wonderful life type Bank run. We've reduced the risk of that in the banking system. But you had that throughout the financial system with lots of institutions, borrowing and things like overnight repo Tri party repo, they were putting up these securities that were terrible and junk, and then all of that collapsed. All of those parts of the financial systems the way we manufactured derivatives all of that. We've changed quite a lot. We don't know where it's coming next. That's why we're looking in a lot more places now than we were a decade ago. Ken Rogoff, another example in addition to what Bod setup the next war, cyber war. Cybersecurity is just we just got. No what happens as you put constraints on the banking system the stuff flows. Elsewhere interest rates are very low people are looking for rest form.

Congress wreck Wessels. This isn't a talk show host. This is a congresswoman who says this last night and this morning, and you can't respond to that. It is so ridiculous. You can't respond to it. I mean, if somebody's just spouts nonsense like that and refuses to acknowledge, what's what's? Plain as day on these videos. You can't you know, there's nothing you can respond to that with the the other nonsense is that this. We'll drummer boys I called him. I is is saying that he was trying to. Escalate some type of situation. First of all, there's nothing really escalated. There was the comments they were making back and forth. The Cup CAF kids at the time or in their during the C c h here you can see him in the background. And I don't know where this guy comes to deescalate something that's not in need of the escalating and his method of doing that is coming in banging, a drum chanting something nobody understands and getting up in the face of a sixteen year old kid. So you know, who who believes that? That's what he was trying to do. Of course, I sixty three year old man with an agenda who is a long history of almost violent protests who tried to break in a Catholic church Saturday night who four years ago did documentaries on attacking police officers that same guy Nathan Phillips is the one that was the escalating by pounding a drama in the face of a sixteen year old boy who did not respond to him at all if somebody walks up to you or me. It starts counting drum. I would say at some point. They're the ones harassing me. The only harassment going on was by Phillips and the only racial epithets being yelled, whereby the black. Hebrew nationals. Who who are confused? That's the only harassment. Exactly, I mean, nobody sees that as the escalating banging a drum. And you know, that's that takes a lot. A lot of bravery on his part to bang that drum in the face of a kid whose only crime is standing there with a look on his face. I think it's like a nervous smile right now. Trying not respond doesn't know what to do. And you know, he does that do a grown, man. He's going to be wearing that dramas the necklace probably in. But that kid that kid the ground and and did nothing. What do you say to the Bishop I've been somewhat harsh on? Now the words it was ready shoot aim ready suit aim now is the Bishop cleaning this thing up. A personally, I think. I think with this third party investigator. They're making it worse. You what what what is it about a third party investigator? And why do you need? You're the leader of the diets just saying I made a mistake. I want to say, look, I jumped the gun. I made a mistake. I'm defending my kids that is his school. He's like the head of the school. I'm defending my customers in my kids who did nothing wrong. We're getting back to school. No, more interviews. We're going back to class and let it go and needs to apologize. He doesn't need to apologize and just come out and say, I was wrong. Should have made that statement. There's there's tons of local politicians and other people who have made similar statements, not all of them have come out and said anything either. But this is different the bishops leader the diocese. You know, he's the leader of this of these kids school in the end. And I really think like I said, I think if if the administration was was left to it. They would have already done would've they would defended their school in.

So high you're saying they should have opened the Mansfield dam. Gates, more more of them, and sooner. When they started flooding upstream. Absolutely. They should have had that they should've had it flowing all along. They try is really because of the development around the perimeter of it now to never get about six ninety five. Because once it starts getting seven hundred grains, like it is now it's getting the areas that I mean, you wait till you see the debris and everything is coming down. And there's only there's only one area for it to go. It's going down to you know, through Mansfield dam to lake Austin, right? And then from lake Austin it's coming to town lake and then from town lake it's going like bastrop and then down the field and like fan, no visually. It ends up down at the rice farmers, which I'm sure it's going to be, you know, a really nice flavor stranded rice coming out of there.

You saying that maybe they should have lowered. I mean like Travis was already probably seventy five feet low. Ahead of the reins go ahead and lowered even more in anticipation. It's gonna rise more than anything else starts slowly getting those gates open like LBJ LBJ went up, and that's a confident level lake everything I kept hearing at the beginning of this flooding was like Travis will be okay lake Travis can handle it.

And they've migrated legally, and that's honorable, but you know, what we're seeing on the border and the last couple of weeks we've seen as many as seven thousand people per week being apprehended, which is up, unfortunately, and they're coming from countries all over the world. But what are the aspects about with President Trump's doing which is different from what we saw under President Obama is he's using the full spectrum of his presidential power. Because you can't just you can't just change. The law. That's one thing. You've got to you've got to use your full diplomatic power. He said to the other countries, I need you to do something different. He's talking he's using informational power. You know, using the power of his presidency in the platform. He has tell people not to come and tell people to enforce the law and all this kind of stuff. He's talking about using the military and and using economic pressures. Well, they know the country say look if you keep doing this. We're not gonna give you money anymore. That's called the dime. Principal diplomatic informational military economic. If you don't do all these things together and have interior enforcement against employers who would hire people, then you're you're just going to continue to have these kind of unrestricted flows. You know, who knows state rep? Tony del you've served the country in the military. You're still a guardsman. Correct. Are you in the state guard? I'm yes, I'm in the Texas State guard. What would the rules of engagement be? If we send troops to the border would they have guns would they shoot would they arrest were they apprehend? What would they do? I think what we've seen in the past is that we don't know what the rules of engagement beat up. I'll be a federal decision. But in the past really the military has been used to. To facilitate the border patrol and ice for doing their job. Making sure that particular areas are essentially blocked here. There is an obstacle to channel people to wear the border patrol might be. Because really we're talking about is between the bridges between the ports of entry to prevent the illegal crossings. So they can do observation. They can do surveillance and they can help. You know, bring the border patrol and local law enforcement in on people. That are breaking the law from the updates. You get from homeland security. How did these caravans get organized? There's an estimated four thousand who's behind this. Really, it's it's mainly done by international criminal organizations and the drug cartels where they use this as a source of revenue they advertise that they're going to be doing this. They have people that collect the money. They have people that facilitate the transportation and logistics all along the way, but unfortunately, and tragically for the people that do this not only do they end up losing their life savings they jeopardize themselves because they're so dicta terrible crimes along the way and some estimates as many as eighty percent of the women almost regardless of age are raped resulted along the way, and so it's a real human tragedy as well. And unfortunately, when people are attracted to come here because of because of a lack of enforcement they're injured and somebody's injuries are lifelong or even life threatening. They killed I want to give you a chance to correct yourself because you said a number just a minute ago. That sounds outrageous. I don't know how it could be true. Are you are you correct on seven thousand a week? Well, that's just what we've been catching. So we don't we don't know. Why don't we don't know? You don't know. How many you miss, but? Yeah. The numbers in the past few weeks have been in the range of seven thousand apprehend, and that's in Texas alone. And that includes the entire US sports thirty thousand a month. I mean, that's three hundred thousand a half a million a year. That's amazing. That's that's tremendous. Well, it's it's been even worse back when governor Perry sent the national guard to the border, and the national guard still there governor habits has been there since the day, he became governor different numbers based on the need. But there were fourteen thousand a week being apprehended in June of twenty fourteen coming across the text again from all countries is they're not mostly not from Mexico. What do you what do you mean? What do you mean from other countries? We certainly see a large number of people that come from Central America, Nicaragua, El Salvador, but we catch dozens every week from China. We catch people from the most concerning really are the countries that have a nexus to terrorism we catch people from Jordan, Iran, Iraq, Libya. You name it. If it's got Saudi Arabia boils catch people from Africa. We catch people from Europe as well. Which is stunning if you're coming from Europe, and you sneak in through the southern border, you're probably somebody that's hiding something. Right. You're probably somebody. We want to question, right? 'cause I'm talking about people that are crossing between the bridges between the ports of entry over the river. You don't have to do that. If you come from a country that has sort of reciprocal these agreements like the United Kingdom where we do catch people from you've heard me talk about Canada. We've caught Canadians before that's a bad idea, man. That's right. So it's concerning. But but really when you catch people from from countries where you know, there's an excess terrorism that that's very concerning. Yeah. Absolutely state rep Tony thank you so much for being on the show. Appreciate it. Thank you. There you go. He's one of the good guys out there nine twenty one here on the tiny, Don show, and we're so glad you joined us got a lot to get to here on this on the show.
