"Well. I think that here's what i'd say. We've seen bipartisan activity. Principally over the last couple of weeks. We've seen that in the house And we're encouraged by that work. Because i think that it is. It is raising appropriately The authorities necessary to go at Some of these concerns that we've talked about there's similar work going on in the senate. And i anticipate that that you know will will progress. It's always one of the things i've found in this job is. It's both not a good idea on and very difficult to really predict with accuracy. Exactly what the us congress Is going to do So i won't. I won't try to do that in this context. But i would say if you look at the work that's going on. There's a lot of thought behind it. There's been a lot of energy building on this issue across time. It is bipartisan in nature. And so it's complex. It's a complicate substantive issue and it's complicated politically as well. But certainly we are encouraged by Because i think you know at the end of the day the president does believe that we really need to focus. On these sets of issues we cannot just allow the status quo to continue the actions that we are taking and the executive order are big step in that direction But we're going to keep working with congress and hopefully we will will be able to progress on the legislative front as well. And i have to just quickly ask you about net neutrality. That was undone by the last administration. What are the plans in this administration. We could restore net neutrality so that certain consolidated companies they might own the pipes and the content can't give their own materials preference over the rest of the internet so the the presence of you on this is pretty clear. I tell this in the campaign. he believes that net neutrality. Rules are necessary and appropriate steps that the prior administration Took were in the wrong direction and then and in the executive order encourages the fcc to restore those rules And so that's why we are And we're we. That's one of the key steps that was embedded in this executive order The fcc operates independently the presence got a clear view and is encouraging the fcc to take action on that. And i see. I only have time for one more question so let me make it a big one. Let's look back from four years in the future at at this council. How will you be able to tell if this council was successful or not at the end of the day. This is about improving economic outcomes for people whether that's in higher wages lower prices or the impact of more innovation in their lives and in the communities in which they operate so at core if we look back successful be because across the economy.

"Up prices leading states. import safely from canada. There's also some steps we're going to need to work with congress to do as well though and that's one of the things that we're working on White now in fact is to try to finally give Medicare the ability to negotiate as the largest purchaser of prescription drugs In the market Give medicare the ability used that Market position to actually negotiate for lower prices Which would not only increase reduced prices for The end participants in medicare but also it would have downward pressure on prices across the industry because medicare is sort of the benchmark rate in In many cases. So you know we just we. You're right it's the kind of thing that it's also the kind of thing that so many americans know and In understand and actually feel in their daily lives and they know that it just doesn't make a lot of sense. Why is it that we're paying so much But at the same time it's hard to pinpoint well. How can we fix that. We're trying to break down and say there's some really concrete practical things we could do and in doing so Where this is. This is about government eliminating rules eliminating regulations. That just don't make a lot of sense Using market power to actually bargain for Better prices these are the kinds of things that we make a lot of sense and and kind of make intuitive sense to the american people as well i want to talk about big tech and net neutrality but before i moved to that space which i know. I'm gonna take a lot of time. I have to talk about farmers a little bit i. Why can't farmers repair their own tractors. This is the most insane thing. I can imagine someone who likes to tinker and do some of my own repairs. If you're if you're a farmer why can't you take your john deere tractor and fix it yourself when it breaks. Well you know look i. It's your your keying in on a lot of these pragmatic. Things are focused on as well. It's hard to. It's hard to prosecute and argument. Why that makes a lotta sense and part of the reason why we are where we are is because of a set of rules that have been put in place that ended up favoring the incumbent right if you are the incumbent and you Shell contractor and you restrict The where somebody can get it fixed. Then it makes it easier for you to keep you know to maintain control of the customer base But the question that you're appropriately raising is what's the what's the broader consumer benefiting. What's the rationale behind it And we think that's the kind of thing that we need to You know we need to fundamentally rethink it's true across the across the economy. Very these sort of right to repair Provisions that again are rules in place that we need to take a hard look at to make sure that if they're in place they are actually serving some important safety safety rationale or otherwise and not just there to to favor or four or keep out new entrance into market in that particular case. We're quite excited about the idea that you know if you open up And give and. That's why the courage the ftc to look at saying give you know give farmer threat to repair their own equipment. How they like without having to rely on any particular expensive manufacturer and in doing so. That will also you know again. It's the same thing you know that should make life easier for farmers It should make it should bring prices down but also encourage innovation. because if you're you know a if you're a pair shop and independent repair shop that works on Some other you know small Small mechanical issues. And you open this up. Well then you have the market to enter into you can learn how to extractors efficiently and cheaply and then you can grow grow as a result And i i think that that's the point i would. I would emphasize if this is not about keeping businesses the us from growing gaining market share And doing what businesses need to do to be successful which is enter new markets innovate grow and as a result get bigger. That's that's part of the goal of effective capitalist. This is not about stifling dot. It's more about looking at those areas. Where a rule actually keeps incumbents from being able enter into the market and really ask the question. Is there a legitimate economic rationale to that other than rent Or other than stifling competition and it's not just factors. It's it cell phones mike. My apple iphone is dying. And i can either swap the battery out and then causes all sorts of problems. Because i'm not allowed to change the battery. Or i could go buy a brand new phone but again before we get to technology. Let me stay with farmers. There are some pretty surprising restrictions on seeds including liability for some farmers for seeds. They never even used. What's going on in that area. I've read some pretty horrible stories. About farmers being sued by by big ag for lack of a better phrase what can be done to allows foreigners to take more control of their own crops of their own planting and their own harvests. Well this is a really good example of when you see consolidation in the market. That should raise a question. A legitimate question of is that consolidation. encouraging healthy competition or consistent with all the competition. Or is it actually.

"In business with berry renolds on bloomberg radio this week. I have an extra special guest. His name is brian. He is the director of the national economic council at the white house and essentially the chief economic advisor to president biden previously. He was the global head of sustainable investing at black rock. And he was president obama's senior adviser for climate and energy policy. Brian deese welcome back to masters in business. Thanks very it's great to be here. So so let's start with your role. In this new administration you are the thirteenth director of the national economic council. I think most people are more familiar with the council of economic advisers. Tell us a little bit about this group. What it does and how it differs from the ca. So the key. The national council was created by executive order in the early nineteen nineties with the goal of having a white house entity that could coordinate economic policy on behalf of the president the Some people think about the way. But i think the more natural analogue is the national security council so the national security council existed in the white house as a way of coordinating policy on national security and foreign policy issues. The national economic council was modeled to do the same for For both domestic and international economic priorities. So if you go back and you read the executive order that was created in the early nineteen nineties if holds pretty true today. So what does that mean number. One how they see Effective way to coordinate and aggregates abuse of all of the key economic policy principals. The secretary of the treasury the chair. The council economic advisers are commerce secretary labor secretary And down the line create common table around which we can debate and discuss and provide the president queer policy recommendations and clear economic advice and at the same time have a coordinated way to take direction from the president about his views at his His direction on the economy and drive across a broad interagency of the executive branch. You to your question. About the council of economic advisers the council's economic advisers is designed as a mostly an internal think tank of economists and experts. Many of whom come out of academia and spend one or two years at the council and provide a an analytical base and economic base to think through issues do provide analysis And really kind of a thought center like counselors really designed to coordinate bringing those views to the table but also Connecting them to the legislative and political realities that we're operating in to try to get the best outcomes possible and services the presence goals so so let's talk a little bit about Your boss the president and some of his goals last week. He signed an executive order to quote promote competition in the american economy. We've kind of become used to these sort of one. Pager photo ops for executive orders but that was not what this was it. It's a seven thousand word. Seventy two bullet point document and and it's very serious policy initiative. Tell us what was the thinking behind rolling out this new policy this way. Well i appreciate you counting words and actions that because we we're certainly focused On that as well. We're really excited about this executive order and it's based on a kind of very simple but important intuition which is that having fair and open. Competition is a fundable fundamental ingredient of a healthy capitalist economy. It's what actually drives better outcomes. Lower prices higher wages more innovation more economic growth and so the core goal of this executive order is to reset across the entire executive branch of focus on wearing in. What ways can we encourage healthy competition in service of achieving those outcomes lower prices higher wages more innovation. And what we've seen across time is that Our economy has gotten less competitive We have a larger number of our industries that are now more concentrated than they were. Twenty or thirty years ago we've seen the rate of new business formation particularly small business fall formation fall by almost fifty percent Since the nineteen seventies. and if you look across industries whether it's you know in in meat-packing or in broadband internet Consumers choices have been constrained. And we haven't seen that kind of the follow through benefit that at least has been argued by folks who say you know. More consolidation will actually generate lower prices for consumers. We haven't seen that either. In fact if you aggregate up the impact of consolidation to an american household in terms of prices and wages And other attendant costs you know. The best estimates are that it's costing about five thousand dollars a year for the typical household so the goal of this executive orders to say. How can we start to get at that. And fundamentally this is this is this is not about being pro business or any businesses about being pro competition. A lot of the ideas in this executive order are actually deregulatory in nature trying to remove some barriers to entry that actually keep workers For more effectively moving and competing for jobs or new businesses to enter into new markets and grow and gain market share a assault. So that's the that's that's the high level that's our goal but you're right We wanted to take a really serious effort to go agency by agency and look where where the challenges. What are the tools that we have. And how can we advance the ball. It looks different in different agencies. There's a lot To unpack here. But that's the goal to tell you. That's shocking number. The lack of competition caused by industry. Consolidation and concentration cost the average american family. Five thousand dollars a year that that's a giant number when you when you just down you know. That's that's a if you you know. But i also would say embedded in that is a big opportunity because if we can actually break down some of those barriers and we can encourage competition. What that means is that we have a way of Actually boosting economic outcomes for the typical family in a significant way. But that sounds pretty esoteric. But you break it down into very practical things Something like hearing today. You need to get a prescription. Do you need to go to a.

We think there is a bipartisan compromise that would be durable and lasting on critical infrastructure. And there are ways to pay for that don't require this big tax increases such a pivotal time and I thought, What you were just talking about on capital gains is scary, right? And the idea that we're gonna punish people for investing in the economy right now just seems outrageous. I don't think that that could be Asked Congress and we're gonna make real sure it doesn't It doesn't matter. I wonder how how forceful you find the argument that capital gains really targets if you believe some of the data are some of the iris filings, one third of 1% of the population E think the data that concerns us is what it does to investment in public companies. What that does to middle class pensions and middle class for one case what it does to people deciding to go public the impacts on the markets and that data is what really concerns us. Is the chamber ever actually crunched the numbers? Is there data that exists that shows a correlation between a higher cap gains tax rate and entrepreneurship, business creation, etcetera. You know, there is Morgan. I don't have the numbers off the top of my head. But the data is out there that when you punish people for investing in the economy when you make it harder for people to do that you make irrational investment decisions and unsound market decisions, and we know that that's bad for the economy, and we know it's bad for companies, which means it's not the job creators.
