What happens if online advertising is just a big, fat bubble?
"So. Big Tech monopolies are in the news this week the Department of Justice sued Google over how it maintains its search dominance and it search dominance is the key to its business model, which is that it makes eighty percent of its revenue from digital advertising facebook by the makes ninety, nine percent of its revenue from advertising and the profitability of targeted ads is also a big reason why tech companies are constantly collecting so much data about us and there's a multibillion dollar ad tech industry that exists because all of this makes so much money. But what these ads didn't actually work all that. Well, Tim Wong is a former public policy executive Google where he worked on artificial intelligence and machine learning and he's of the new book subprime attention crisis I. Think this is an interesting important distinction right? which is it's not necessarily to make the argument that advertising never works categorically right? We have examples of it working. The question is whether or not the market as a whole really lives up to the promises that it's made and the promises made is that data driven. Automated form of what's known as programmatic advertising is a kind of advertising that's way better than billboards or magazines or the kind of madman style of advertising and I think ultimately, it may be that we are exactly where we were decades ago. Right? which is we actually don't know which half of the money spent advertising works in which one is wasted. We just very difficult to tell. Is, there an awareness of this? I mean I know that you know after for example, Cambridge Politica, there was a lot of conversation about how there are lots of promises related to micro targeting and that it just might not be. Realistic. Like do advertisers are they starting to understand this? Well, I, think there's a lot of willful blindness in the Advertising Space you know so this book that I just wrote, it opens on a really strange experience that I had going to a marketing conference where a professor laid out all of the evidence right? You know sixty percent of people never see ads ad blocking up all around the world it was just dead space the. Advertisers kind of refuse to engage with it, and you know it's one of the things I've been thinking a lot about because it's similar to patterns that we see and other market bubbles right where there's these deep structural problems with the industry. But a lot of the people involved either don't want to hear it or they don't believe it I mean listen I'm very familiar with the idea of the belief that technology must be working even. All. Evidence to the contrary. But I do want to ask you about targeting specifically because it seems like there's a lot of technical reasons it doesn't work. But what about this idea that there's a massive amount of data collection that ads can be so specific and personalized that you literally cannot resist them are you saying that's also not true Yeah I. Mean You brought up Cambridge Analytical earlier? I mean there's a fascinating report that just came out from the UK privacy regulator that was basically their research to say look there's all of this kind of. Metric advertising does it make a difference and the conclusion? There was no there actually was not any significant difference and there's two reasons for that. One of them is a lot of researchers find that a lot of the data being used as faulty and messy and doesn't work and I think the other one is whether or not. This data actually helps you to target a message better is really unclear. There's a great researcher by the name of Allesandro. Who's been doing some work on if you have targeted ads versus non targeted ads, does it actually make a difference and conclusion is it does but really only by a small margin, much less than you think. Could it also expose the fact that a lot of these companies no longer want the data for advertising like they want it for machine learning. Yeah I. think that's ultimately you know I think one of the great questions and responses I've had to the book is people say so why have we built this enormous surveillance infrastructure? This thing just doesn't work I. Think people have traditionally thought. Oh, well, it's because Mark Zuckerberg wants to build a mind control ray that's his advertising system. You know the reality is that it has been collected for other reasons and for sure I think things like the promise of machine learning is is one of the reasons that people collect this data. What Can. Be Done. Do you think I mean? This is a big complicated technology question. You've got companies spending a ton of money and companies that rely on this for their whole business model. Like what could solutions even look like? One of my worries about this is that again, if you study the history of market bubbles, a lot of what we see is very reminiscent right to the say the subprime mortgage crisis of two, thousand, seven, two, thousand, eight, and there is a momentum here in the problem with bubbles is that. While, it may look great in two, thousand, seven, I think we were saying how great economy is doing. At some point they pop and I think the human costs will be great. It's really not just a matter of whether or not you know Mark Zuckerberg has less. Fewer billion dollars right I think you gotta think about all the media that's relying on this ecosystem that journalism that relies on it and many other places that advertising touches online, and so I I tend to believe in the idea that we have to find ways of deflating this bubble and so I'm really interested in kind of the ability to both spread the public word about some of the problems in this marketplace. But also I think there's room for regulation I. think There's room to enforce transparency in the marketplace to try to make sure that you know expectations about this match up with reality. There's been just as a regulatory matter there been a lot of questions about banning targeted advertising. Should that happen? Yeah I I do think. So and I think in some ways you know in may be the thing that pops the bubble right because for the longest time, advertisers have been basically holding to the position that we need all this data order to do our business to target our ads and what we're seeing as things. GDP are the European privacy law and CPA to California privacy law rollout is in many cases the market just keep chugging along even though our advertisers have a lot less access to data and I do think that that kind of realization that all this data might actually not have been very. Meaningful might actually 'cause you know sort of expectations or perceptions about how great this stuff is to kind of crash to Earth, and so you think these privacy laws have these two effects. One of them is to protect privacy, which of course is important but I think the other side of it is actually in May of like you know strip the veil off this market that I think has been kinda shrouded for so long Tim. Wong is the author of the new book subprime attention crisis. How big a bubble are we talking here? Digital advertisers will spend over one hundred and forty billion dollars in the US in twenty twenty.

By the time. The data was expunged and and gotten rid of from Facebook Trump didn't benefit from it at all. But that's it. If you want to know, if you wanna know why the media, and if you've ever encountered tech media tech, blogs, if you wanna know why they hate Zuckerberg. It's Cambridge analytical all the other reasons burger just human nature has more money than they do he's younger than they are smarter than they are Facebook's biggest thing in the world, and they are and Zuckerberg launches wealth by buying whole islands in the Hawaiian chain all kinds of really sticks them off. The Cambridge analytic. It's it's so obvious this so transparent and Cambridge analytic what they did pales in comparison to the way the left and the Democrats are using Facebook for the exact same reasons. I mean, it's Cambridge Olympic versus the Facebook newsfeed for crying out loud. It just like they have this irrational hatred of Fox News. They've got ninety eight percent of drive-by media is left wing everything except for talk radio and Fox News. And they fuck all day. They hate talk radio. All they ate it. Just because we are here. Make no mistake. Cambridge look before we get back to the phones. We move on. We had a caller. It was either earlier this week or late last week who said rush did you notice that Rosenstein was standing behind Bill Barr. When bar said that the mullahs report found, no collusion. No obstruction. I said, yeah, I saw Rosenstein. Well, I think I think bar have kept Rosenstein on because I think the callers I think Rosenstein is on loading on all these Rosenstein knows what struck strokes Merck and paved in McKinney knows what all these BI Schill's. Did he knows what everybody was doing to try to run this co and I'll betcha he's on the loading. I'll bet bar is given him all kinds of grace periods and exonerations and promises that nothing will happen to an if he's just hangs around unloads. And I said that the caller well. I hadn't thought of that. But you may be right. Well, guess what Rosenstein made a speech at the Arden menial lawyers association or some such thing if. Was the army-in. Federalist where was it was that the Armenian bar sociation? He in his speech. Mid to this bunch of the the members of the Armenian Marsal. They quote previous administration didn't tell us the whole truth. And then he said don't get me started on Komi. We have a couple of audio soundbites number seventeen and eighteen last night, the Armenian bar association, public servants dinner. This is where the Armenian bar association. Annual dinner for waiters and bartenders and the servants. I'm kidding. It's not definitely public servants. Our government workers right here is to somebody roses. I'm gonna have to add to these bites. But here's the first of the two some critical decisions about that. Russia investigation were made before I got there. The previous administration shows not to publicize the full story about Russian computer, hackers and social media trolls. And how they relate to Russia's broader strategy to undermine America. Our our caller may have a point here here's roses days. So many people thought dean was in on this co. But here he is unloading on Obama and all of these FBI types of the intelligence people in the Obama administration some critical decisions about the Russia investigation remained before I got there. Remember Trump appointed him the previous administration will be Obama chose not. To publicize the full story about Russian computer, hackers and social media trolls. And how they relate to Russia's broader strategy to undermine America. Need I translate this? He's suggesting meal. Bob administration knew full well what the Russians are doing.

"cambridge analytical" Discussed on Monocle 24: Midori House
"We were all probably much more Inam word of what computers could do what big data could do. And and so, you know, this was like just a great opportunity that campaigns were able to take advantage of and now in the kind of post Cambridge analytical world, it's a little less less that but not not as much as you might think it's feels as though Cambridge nigga hers coincided with a massive change in how we've you be daughter and technology companies and the internet generally, but suspicions about how private information is being used and captured have been around for much longer. Of course, I think that in general people in this country, at least we're not really paying attention to what was going on in campaign. Certainly, you know, there were various data breaches over the last, you know, five six years where people would kind of for a moment. Wake up to the idea that their personal information was not just being collected for. Advertising purposes, but for more nefarious purposes, and each time, there would be this kind of moment of recognition, and then everyone go back to using Facebook, or Twitter, whatever they were using. And so I don't think there was a moment. But what happened when Christopher Wiley came forth from the depths of having talked to the amazing reporter from the guardian and observer had Waller widely had been the architect of the Cambridge Analytica algorithms that were using basically purloined Facebook data, and when he came out of the shadows and told us that there was something like eighty six eighty seven at least eighty seven million Facebook profiles that had been basically appropriated in a kind of underhanded way and used for these political ads that. I think was the moment. When people woke up to the connection between what they were doing on Facebook, and what was going on in the political world. And I think it was shocking to people even though it had been going on for quite a long time. And one of the things that I found out in my research was that the Obama campaign, which you know, which we all were, you know, very happy about their use of of technology. They had themselves a time ago used Facebook data in the same not in the same way. But they had taken Facebook data from the friends of friends. So you might say it's fine for you to have my data. But your friends didn't say it was fine for them to have your data. But it was totally within the rules a Facebook that that was okay. And so the Obama campaign did that in two thousand twelve. And no one looked scans at that. Because because no-one looked guests at that. But then when Wiley shows up and tells us that this happened to eighty seven million people that was just shocking the numbers were shocking, and that I think what kind of turn the tide against a lot of the stuff in the public imagination. But as I say, not necessarily in in terms of what candidates and their consultants are doing now when we look at this from from the outside. I it certainly it has the appearance of some sort of dark and evil plan from some sort of science fiction film or an episode of black mirror. But of course, political campaigns have been using much longer than you, and I have been walking this planet. Do you think Assad from all of the outrage that we see about now and suspicions is really what we're seeing in the game of collection simply a natural progression from how it used to work before the days. Of the internet. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, I think one of the things interesting about what's happening with campaigns. Is that basically they follow the lead of what's happening in marketing. So because at this point campaigning is marketing, it's just that, you know, you don't have to sell lots and lots of blenders or, you know, shoes or something like that you have to sell a candidate. And you've got a one day sale, but you still have to still a sale. So the way to think about what is it going to happen? What's you know? What's in the future really is to start looking at what they're doing in terms of marketing in the commercials on and and understanding that that will soon be adapted to campaigning sue help?

Months for Facebook and, CEO Mark Zuckerberg in July the company's valuation dropped one hundred twenty four billion dollars the largest single. Day plunge in US history this in the wake of, a cascade of disturbing revelations as, we first reported in April we now know that during, years of, essentially policing itself Facebook alab Russian trolls, to by US election ads, advertisers to, discriminate by race hate. Groups to spread fake news and because Facebook shirked privacy concerns a company called Cambridge Analytica was, able to syrup tissue sleep gain access to personal data mined. From as many as eighty seven million Facebook users The, man who mind that data for Cambridge Analytica is a, scientist named, Alexander Kogan he's at the center of, the Facebook controversy because he, developed an, app that harvested data. From tens of millions of unwitting Facebook users the main infraction the main charge is that you, sold the data so at the time I thought we're doing. Everything that was correct I was kind of, acting honestly quite naively thought we. Were doing everything okay. Facebook says that you lie to them that's frustrating to hear to be honest if I had any inkling that what we. Were gonna do was gonna destroy a relationship with Facebook I? Would have never done it if I had any inkling that I was going to cause people to be upset I would. Have never done it this is the blind we have back that for someone implicated. In the biggest privacy scandal on earth Cogan seems incongruously guileless before all this happened what was your job and what was your field.

A university lecturer at the university of Cambridge in England and England And I ran this lab that studied happiness and kindness and happiness and kindness Yeah. That's a far cry. From the adjectives lobbed at him now sinister in unethical here's what he did he ask Facebook users to take a. Survey he designed from which he built psychological profiles meant, to predict their behavior He failed. To disclose one that. What he was really after was access to their friends tens of millions of people he could not otherwise reach easily And to that he was doing the survey for Cambridge Analytica a political consulting firm that use the material to influence people, on how to vote the companies then CEO bragged about their prediction models on stage by having hundreds and hundreds of. Thousands of Americans undertake the survey we were able to form a mobile to predict the, personality of every single adult. In the United States of America Did you get to the point where you were predicting personalities And you gave that to Cambridge analytic? Contract what did you think they were gonna, use it for I knew it was gonna be for elections and I had a understanding or feeling that. Was going to be for the Republican side as political consultants Cambridge analytical was. Hired by campaigns to analyze voters and target them with ads
"cambridge analytical" Discussed on The Economist Radio
"In London. This is the economist you're listening to tasting menu, bite size, selection of the most intriguing stories from across the week. I'm macelroy head of a communist radio. And on your menu today, the Cambridge analytical whistle blower Christopher Wiley on how big data has changed the political game, the mystery of the Scottish enclave deep in the hills of Tuscany, and we pay our ESP CT to the Queen of so. But I, it's easy to lose perspective in the investigation swirling around President, Donald Trump. But last week, something significant changed a cover story, react to the news that Michael Cohen. Mr. Trump's former fixer pleaded, guilty to taxation fraud and breaking campaign finance laws. Mr. Coen's plea was striking because he was not just Mr. Trump's lawyer. He was the guy who made his problems go away. This included making payments during the twenty sixteen campaign to buy the silence of two women who appear to have had a fares with Mr. Trump. But Mr. Cohen told a court under oath that the money was paid at the direction of a candidate for federal office. In other words, that Mr. Trump told mister co into break the law, then lied to cover it up. If that's true, we rate Americans will soon have to confront a simple question, isn't it? Trump above the law mister Coen's plea has made the press. Student of the United States an unindicted co conspirator in a pair of federal crimes that the convention since president Nixon's day his being the decision president will not be indicted despite an attempt to do so under Bill Clinton. The constitutional problem that America is heading towards is that the Justice Department's protocol not to prosecute sitting presidents dates from another age when a president could be expected to resign with a modicum of owner before any charges were drawn up as Nixon Dade that gnome no longer applies. The unwritten convention now says in effect that if his skin is taken off a president is indeed above the law. The question of whether to remove a president is therefore a matter of politics bass, far Republicans in congress, have stood by the president. The only thing to change that is a performance in the term so bad. That enough of them come to see the president as an electoral liability. Although Democrats may well win a majority in the house, a two thirds majority in the Senate, the threshold required to remove a president looks on achievable. We argued this is a sad moment for America, but it is a shameful one for the Republican party whose members remain more dedicated to minimizing Mr. Trump's malfeasance than to the ideal that nobody not even the president is above the law. Let's tune into the best of the week's podcast. Now, all latest episode of the economist asks our chat show also addressed the limits of the law.

"Otas so the Wall Street Journal who helped break this story is here with a scoop, Anna, Maria who did Facebook approach about this idea Past here Facebook has reached. Out to a number of large banks including j. p. Morgan Wells Fargo CitiGroup in US, Bank asking for detailed information about, the bank's customers including things like card transactions credit card debit card. Transactions, and. Checking account balances we're banks receptive to this what do they get out, of it so there are some serious concerns. At the bang about data privacy especially in the wake of Cambridge analytical scandal so this, is a very big sticking point for the banks in their conversations with Facebook and in at, least one case one. Large Bank pulled away from talks due to those privacy concerns Anna Maria what does Facebook, want, to do with this information to Facebook Says, that it, would like the additional information in order, to basically entice Facebook users spend more time on Facebook so they believe that having with additional. Information will result in more people spending more time there that's in large part one of, the, appeals in trying, to get this data it's also I'm interested, in launching new products and, services and, what Facebook says is that it would. Not be using the Bank. Data for ad targeting purposes or sharing? It with third parties we're speaking with Anna Maria entry out of, the Wall Street Journal do we believe Facebook. They've been in so much trouble this year why would customers think that they wouldn't use, this data to sell their information, well you know we stick with what the company says and the. Company, has. Been adamant that doesn't have intention to use it for ads There, are, concerns among the banks about this is. Very sensitive information and this is information that banks largely considered to be their own data so this brings up the question of who was data is it right. I mean it's the customers actions that result in the customer data but the banks believe very. Strongly better stairs and. It's their responsibility to hold onto it and protect it. At the same time they're at a technology companies Facebook. Certainly being one of the most high profile that do want to get this data and think that they would be able to do. Some pretty useful things with it so at this stage though given. Everything that's been playing out with Facebook what has caused alarm among? The banks is concerns around data privacy and skepticism about whether in many cases?

Facebook Just Shut Down Dozens of Fake Pages
"Weather center I'm meteorologist Shannon O'Donnell This past week Facebook shut down dozens of accounts for what it. Called coordinated inauthentic behaviour the move once again prompts the question how, is. Social media influencing our democracy this week ABC's Aaron. Katersky sat down with? The network's chief business economics and technology, correspondent Rebecca Jarvis, today. Further. Into the. Topic they discuss what Facebook is doing to try to get rid of these accounts Facebook has removed thirty two pages and accounts that were part of a coordinated. Politically subversive campaign potentially meant to mess with the midterm elections now just three months away so we want to get into how social media is influencing our. Democracy and to do that want to begin with, ABC's senior business and technology correspondent Rebecca Jarvis Rebecca these accounts had rather provocative names in some, cases what were they doing the resistors, was one of. The names so, it's It's amazing that these accounts lasted for the extent of. Time. That they did number of them were created in March of two. Thousand seventeen, they continuously were developed, until, may of this year they put out a number of, posts in, over ninety five hundred, posts took out, over one hundred and fifty ads were? Followed by two hundred ninety thousand people in one of the reasons that we learned that these accounts were. Being taken down by, Facebook is that one of the accounts was advertising an event in Washington DC. And very real people had responded to the event saying I will be there six hundred people responded instead they'd be there twenty six hundred others, were following that account. In that event real people nail people attending a real event that's right and Facebook has been. Reaching out to let them know what really happened that this was, being. Promoted by a bunch of trolls exactly fake accounts. Fake accounts that Facebook? Says aren't allowed on their site so, Facebook especially Because of the fact that these were a. Coordinated attack that's what what Facebook believes that this wasn't just one account all. Thirty two Facebook pages and accounts were working in concert with. Each other to do something now what that something. Is was it meddling or is it attempted meddling in. The midterm elections in November there's a suspicion that yes that very likely given the timing of the creation of the accounts has to do with why they were created at this point Facebook is still in the investigative face and they have been in an investigative phase throughout the platform for months now really since the Cambridge analytical, scandal came to light since Mark Zuckerberg the CEO and founder was on Capitol Hill earlier this year was called on lawmakers to, do more you're hearing more of those calls. Again to. Be clear Rebecca even though Facebook sort of gestured in the general direction of Russia they didn't point a decisive finger at Russia. For. These thirty two fake accounts yeah they said there were things that. Look similar, to To what they saw with. Russian IRA influence in the two thousand sixteen election because there, was that influence on Facebook Ben they said there were similarities and. Connections but at this point there are no Russian IP addresses associated with these. Particular. Accounts they went to great lengths to conceal the Even more so and that, was some interesting point that Facebook, maters that, the bad actors are getting better and better and that they are a determined well-funded and a constantly changing, of their tactics bunch which is what makes it more complicated business Facebook's argument. That. Makes it far more, complicated for Facebook to do anything but to your point about congress I mean if you look back, at, the questions that Facebook fielded when they were on. The hill earlier this year it doesn't really feel like congress has really gotten its head around this question either I say be skeptical don't believe everything that you read and today it's Russia tomorrow who knows what could be that's ABC's Aaron Katersky and.

Facebook, Keith Alverson and Bryan Donkin discussed on Marketplace
"Not exactly an economic indicator but, it, does offer perhaps a, hint of some of the changes coming in this economy changes in the way that. We relate to our, technology and the way technology relates to people the number is eighteen point nine six. It's measured in percent and it's the drop that Facebook shares took today after an ozo- disappointing earnings call after the bell yesterday investors were caught off, guard, to say the very least by. How. Big a deal the Cambridge analytical data sharing. Scandal has turned out to be among Facebook users and how much it might cost the company to regain that trust marketplace's Nancy. Marshall genzer gets, us going Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Was blunt in yesterday's earnings call we're investing so much insecurity that it will significantly impact. Our profitability We're starting to see that this quarter Facebook says. It's spending more than a, billion dollars a year to improve security and how it. Handles private data analyst Richard greenfield says the, money will, be used to verify content that's, posted to make sure that advertisers are who they say they are and where those ads are coming from there wasn't backlash from Facebook users after they learned that Cambridge analytic got hold. Of their private data to sell, to, political campaigns but users, aren't abandoning Facebook on mass it's just too big a part of their lives Michael. Premium is a digital, ad consultant he says we use Facebook for more than just staying in touch with. Our friends to log in and actually interact with either making other purchases or to verify our identity so Facebook probably won't be doing a face plant, but, internet security and data privacy those. Are. Sticky problems if you're a drug maker facing. Trust issues you can just change your packaging to make your medications More secure Raymond James managing director Aaron Kessler says Facebook's, fixes aren't so easy there's bad actors. That trying to stay one step ahead of the. Terms of safety and security issues as. Well it's, kind of a game back and forth a very expensive game that never ends I'm Nancy Marshall genzer for marketplace we are getting an actual economic indicator tomorrow gross. Domestic product growth for the April to June quarter, best guesses are then it's going, to be pretty good. Somewhere above four percent maybe even touching five, that's as compared to first quarter growth of two percent And as I said that's pretty nice jump but well just but here's marketplace's Kimberly, Adams the economy has been growing steadily over the past, decade but during the second quarter. Of this year there were some drastic changes that sped up growth Miami mcginnis president of the committee for. A, responsible federal budget I threw big tax cuts then threw big. Spending increases and they're also some changes, things, to do, with trade that, may bump up those numbers. Even further in particular tariffs and concerns about them may have changed business behavior in the last few months Erica. In a senior scholar at Cornell and former, head of the bureau of labor statistics. Says those changes will likely show. Up in the GDP numbers but not over, the long term you might see the stockpiling of goods. Where people might think that the price was going up sometime soon well we'll. Also show up is the result of the tax cuts some corporations increased spending Seth carpenter is chief economist, for UBS the boost to the economy from the tax cuts is going to be real. It's going to be measurable however it's also going to be temporary and start to Peter out after next. Year carpenter says it's never a good idea to base a long term view of the economy, on one quarter GDP in Washington I'm Kimberly Adams for, marketplace on Wall Street today quick. Could somebody remind me which of the major indices includes Facebook and which one doesn't because that's kind of. A, hint as to how things went we'll have the details when. We do the numbers President Trump's been in the mid west. This, afternoon celebrating the expansion of a steel plant in Illinois he was in Iowa this? Morning celebrating the agreement to start talking about reaching a trade. Deal with the European Union that he announced yesterday We've got a, couple of farmers we check in with from time to time when. News like, this comes up Keith alverson grows, corn and, soybeans in South Dakota. Bryan Duncan does hogs and soybeans in Illinois I threw Keith the first question when we talked which basically boiled down to how he's feeling about the. President's announcement you know it's it's a positive step still you know the year pin union, so I've been markets about seven times smaller than that. Of China. And sold the the. Bigger, thing is the negotiations with, China in regards to that and so while it's a positive, step in a, in a movement in the right direction the, is still on the prize for the US farmer Bryan Donkin same question to you yeah I. Echo what keeps says but I think also if we can forge alliances with Europe Mexico with, Canada and then turn as one to face China. I think that's also a benefit, to us as we seek to resolve these differences on trade you have it Brian Lamey the odds right Because up until. Yesterday nobody hit even blinked in, this. Thing and so far we have nothing from the Chinese which is a huge market for American hogs it's a, huge market for, American soybeans Brian nobody seems to. Be backing down in that relationship and that's. That's obviously of concern but that being said I, guess we in the country act to sit here and hope there's. Things going, on behind the scenes and continue, to urge, the administration to get. To the table and and get to work to resolve these issues Keith alverson what's your level of hope man what's your level of optimism boy you. Know we real similar situation things aren't looking to optimistic right now we were promised bilateral, trade deals and we're open some of those come to. Fruition and. So you know it's. Just, it's tough to see the, light at the end of the tunnel point so the light, at the end, of the tunnel could be for both of, you a slice of the twelve billion dollars in aid that the Trump administration the other day. Promised he was going to grant Bryan sir Secretary of agriculture. The secretary of commerce I'm not, sure actually who has the physical money they come. To you and say, here is part of twelve billion dollars is that going to do it for you. I think it's important to recognize that we're grateful for the acknowledgement of the economic damage that's been done but unfortunately sadly twelve billion is gonna fall short and yes that money. Will help meet some short term needs But I think is Keith says. We've gotta talk about the longer, term price too because I'm afraid the. Damage could mount quickly into hundreds of billions? Of dollars you know and and so there's not a band aid for that injury Keith what's the sense. Of of, what it would take to you know with soybean, prices where they are and corn and all that What would your slice of this. Twelve billion dollars make, you whole I guess is, the question No really unlikely, we're we're looking at. Just what the market, dropped that we've seen, you know in this production, year somewhere around fifty to one hundred dollars. An acre in lost revenue potential you know a lot of times that's easily the, profit margin that farmers have figured in the beginning of the year and so, you know, we're back to the break even prices or below break even, in, some circumstances and so you know we want more markets, not less, and you know rather have trade than eight acknowledging that farmers Are are subject, to a whole lot, of variables, right from weather, to market prices to to take your pick How big a blip is this. For you Bryan Donkin, in your economic future it could it could dramatically change the look. Of rural America guy I mean this this. We've seen the six big commodities dropping value on an annualized basis twenty billion dollars since the trade war began that's twenty. Billion with a b a year that. We were forecast in agriculture to have a net income of sixty billion so you see what, that that means and so if this, continues on this is not, just potentially, damaging to my own? Personal economy but to the, economy of rural America Brian duck and, throws Hogson I guess what do you do you raise hogs. I, suppose and. And you grow. Soybeans in Illinois and Keith alverson are corn and soybean farmer, in South Dakota thanks you too appreciate your time thank God There was an economic report out from.

Whose shares have fallen off fifth in after hours. Trading joining us now is Bloomberg opinion tech columnist Alex Webb, Alex what in the heck happened everybody's doing, invest everybody invested in Facebook invested as a gross story it's the company which is valued at. Six hundred thirty billion or at least it was this time yesterday and now they be valued my basis even though it had forty eight billion in annual. Revenue, guess what station was that revenue would continue to grow a pace that's sort of forty fifty percent a year apps that incredibly healthy forty percent, net margin, now what. Facebook is saying that that growth will slow and the margin itself will decrease because they are having to invest more in human curation here human moderation better security that is something. That maybe they, should have done a long time ago and tempered expectations then is their ability to automate so, much, is, what drove Incredible. Profit margins and I think that's probably what there's a tacit admission that they over automated investors also seen spooked after the CFO David Wayner said that revenue. Growth, rates would decline also in the third and fourth quarters is that the same story regulations sort of weighing weighing on the bottom line look is, an element, of of. Regulation but there's also huge element of just the appetite for Facebook is waiting in North America engage in rates declining uses are actually declining as well That was one really telling move under. Sort of the financial massaging to extent them. No longer breaking out how many users Facebook versus Instagram versus WhatsApp has they're pooling them all in the same bucket. That is the read of that is that Facebook. Uses all gonna be fooling and therefore, showing the growth on the Instagram, and WhatsApp side and kind of merging waters a bit helps tell helps they think, probably tell us about a story that's awesome so if the data's week they just decided. Not to publish. It anymore exactly anyone to do that Well what investors. Can kind. Of vote on that kind, of policy with their feet can't they absolutely. And they have this is It was interesting to look at the stock grazing Facebook versus Google Facebook let's let's say. One caveat actually we don't know for sure that this twenty four twenty five percent, Trump will continue, into the actual trading day but if it does, not a wipe out. All of the gains from this year and then some if you look at Google who's before the earnings they'd grown fourteen percent the stock could grind fourteen percent this year that was less than the other sort of buying stocks that being a certain amount. For, calcitrate trans about Google because of the fear of regulation and the. Amount that they would have to spend. To quad traffic now Facebook didn't have those concerns you despite, the, dip around Cambridge analytical they were still well up this year and I think maybe this correction was only, if all, right yeah apparently if indeed this drop is.
