Dwayne The Rock Johnson is Buying an Entire Football League
"For many of us, Monday nights sieve Longman, Monday, night football. So today's a good day to consider a shakeup in the football world. The potential revival of a would be competitor to the National Football League last week actor and former pro wrestler Dwayne the Rock Johnson with other investors bought a start-up Football League called the xfl this take some explanation especially to those who aren't avid sports fans. Let's start with the xfl contrary to popular belief. The NFL doesn't football is just had a monopoly for the most part for so long that most. Most people consider it an institution for the last couple of decades though rivals have attempted to build new leagues to compete with the. NFL. The XFL is one of those its roots began way back in the year two, thousand when World Wrestling Federation chairman. Vince. McMahon decided to build a league that could compete with the NFL NBC Cohen the League and planned to carry its games the XFL plan to extend the football season by playing games from just after the Super Bowl in February. Until late April. Now, at the time league owners, hopes were high that the Saturday night games could Wu and elusive audience TV. Teenage boys according to CNN. Vince McMahon. WWF had been almost magical in its ability to appeal to twelve to twenty four year. Old Males who typically don't stay home watching TV on Saturday nights. The xfl hoped McMahon could bring that WWF formula to football and win that desirable TV audience, and for one brief moment, it looked like their hopes were within reach the first game in two thousand, one drew more than fifteen million viewers a massive audience. That gold ring looked close and yet it turned out to be so far away as the season wore on audiences spell like a botched handoff after that single season, the xfl shutdown. Sometimes in life timing really is everything, and so it goes for Vince McMahon who decided that twenty twenty would be the right time to revive the xfl it launched in February, pitching the Seattle dragons against the DC defenders teams played five games among both players and owners. Optimism rained TV audiences varied by geography, but were decent enough that by March believe was well into planning the twenty twenty, one season. And then Kobe came along the League canceled the season March twentieth less than a month. Later, the XFL filed for bankruptcy sports writers added the xfl lists of other WanNa, NFL competitors who'd also tried to make a go of it over the years. The XFL seemed to be just another failed startup, but perhaps they declared the league's death too soon. Let's get back to Dwayne Johnson better known as the Rock Johnson actually started his career as a football player, but never made it to the NFL instead, he joined Vince McMahon's wwf where he quickly rose to superstardom before retiring to become an actor, he's now the highest paid actor in the world according to Forbes. With his business partner Danny Garcia who also happens to be his ex wife, the rock led the fifteen million dollar purchase of the. xfl. Out of Bankruptcy Sports Management Company redbird capital as a third partner. Johnson says the purchase was actually Garcia's idea she loves football and when the XFL declared bankruptcy, she saw their chance to own not just a team but an entire league not to get too grand about this. Consider that the salary of a single NFL football star say. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak. Prescott is thirty, one million dollars. That's more than double what the partners paid for the xfl which has eight teams. Still, the deal made headlines. Perhaps it's a bit of hopeful light entertainment amidst the onslaught of grim. News in two thousand, twenty, Garcia. Johnson. Say They plan to produce multimedia content for fans year round, not just during the active spring season at production time, they hadn't yet said when the League will start to play again.

I. Just, cut and paste that out of wikipedia. So who knows how true it is, but it's probably in the Ballpark, right? So much success. No, no rose just shaking his at now. So much success, but Smith largely shunned the spotlight he was so reclusive in fact that his company didn't even have his photo on the website for fear that seeing a black man at the helm might deter people and as I mentioned earlier if you Google, Robert Smith anything written before two thousand and sixteen is either about the cure or is titled some variation of WHO is this guy? But all that changed a few years ago. As he said in an interview when I look at the folks that inspired me growing up people like Frederick Douglass, they had to stand up and take positions in public or to make a difference part of the responsibility I have because of the opportunities I've been granted is to take leadership positions and help expand access for others.

Tackling Systemic Racism in the Fashion Industry
"I everybody and welcome to today's be O. F. Live event. I'm Lauren Chairman Be Offs Executive Editor and I'm joined today by Brandis Daniel Chief Executive of Harlem's fashioned row Sandrine Charles founder of Sandrine. Charles. Consulting Henrietta Galina Brandon creative consultant, and today we're GONNA be talking about a really important topic always but you know especially in the last few months, how to tackle system racism in fashion it's a really big question I'm sure we'll only. Get Two to one or two points here. But but we want to do as much as we can, and in this hour that we have what I wanted to do I is for each of you to introduce yourselves and what you do in your own activists as well. So maybe talk a bit about what you've been working on in the last couple months as the civil rights movement has really come to the forefront in the US, Henrietta maybe we can start with you. I, everyone I'm Lena. I am a direct up by way of saying have been in the fashion industry for. About fifteen years now. What can range of. Brands. DIFFERENCE CASS grades. and. So. My wife is always been rooted increase efficiency inclusions I've asked. My wife tens of mocks stories. An image making and I would say, miss recently I WANNA be. confounds the cut initiative which Let's have a appoint Yucky. Great. Thank you brandis. What about you? I am the. Founder Pearl Fashion Row and icon sixty Harlem's fashion row has been doing this work thirteen years we on started really kinda focusing on designers of color in creating opportunities for them, connecting them with brands, press, and with consumers as well. we've also done several brand collaborations have been a great way to really bring diversity to brands who who may not have had. It were win couvert hit on the pandemic. We started a nonprofit icon sixty, which is basically a fine or designers of collar and We've been able to raise thanks to the NBA took over a million dollars in donations for designers of. Car. It sandrine last but not least I am. Sandrine. Charles of I have been working in the industry for thirteen years. Now, I own Sandrine Charles Salting, which is a week. Calms and Everything encompassing that agency her fashion and lifestyle brands. In addition, I'm the founder alongside Lindsay People's or the black and fashion council. Thank you offer for sharing that so. I think to start. This is a really big question, but obviously, the civil rights movement that's happening right now has been. Very prominent in the news in the last month, it's obviously never not existed but it suddenly. You know the fifteen percent pledge. Protest every single day. Brands are really saying I. WanNa make a difference they're publicly. Saying I'm going to do all these things to be more diverse, etc, etc. Now, a lot of their ex employees or or. You know. Consumers are calling them out for not practicing what what they are are pre chain and I'm curious to know from you all your all veterans in this industry you've you've witnessed this the systemic racism that is particular to fashion. What what do you think? The biggest issue is Ashen and that we can start working on or You know people are already working on but what is the? Biggest point that we need to tackle in order to start fixing all the little problems that have come out of this. Don't know if one of you wants to start. I'll. Brand half. Start I think on what Sandrine Lindsay is doing is asking with the Black Fashion Council asking brands to actually put a quantitative solution in place it's the same thing that Aurora Jane tasked with a fifteen percent pledge i. think the brands have to fully commit and the way that they can fully commit being you know here's exactly what we're going to do. So when you say I want my sales to get better you don't say go out to your. Team and say, you know what we want better cells next year what you do is you say WanNa ten percent increase we want to fifteen percent increase you know right so you create very clear goals so that you know if you're successful in meeting those goals or not successful meeting notes and if you're not successful, there are things you put in place to make sure you overcome that in me that all it's the same thing with this rain so I think. The first thing that Branston do is say, what is our commitment? What is our our firm commitment? Let's start with a very clear commitment and work our way back because my fear is that if we just start having conversations in conversation is a really key piece to this in having with lack people in non black people ruling to have honest dialogue. But my fear is that if we're only talking is the passion Unin die down in another. Year and I. think that's Oliver Fear Rate. But if you put a very clear plan in place and you say, this is what these are the numbers. We're GONNA hit across our organization that means in our leadership and on our boards because let's talk about boards and how they're barely any black people boards. There's only one black. CEO in the entire fashion industry. So that's just say what are we gonNa do across the Board in our organization? And then you work backwards from the air and doing what you have to do to to meet that goal.

Okay whatever my parents said I did yet so. I thought that. That would be it but later on in life I, was able to work. Cartoon animation stuff into some computer work that I did you know for doing the weather but you know everything happens for a reason because of that going to Xavier High School, we had a closed circuit. Television, station where we did the news in the morning and that got me interested in TV otherwise not quite sure what I would have done. Yeah. I mean I I, know Unite share another parallel, which is both AV crew nerds. There you go. Yeah I mean and that was the thing. I mean it was it was sad. Really Looking back in it that we thought we were cool and we were the antithesis of cool here we are wheeling around projectors and slide units and tape recorders on a rolling cart you know. We thought we were in I. Mean we had our little gang's on you know a it was I was in perhaps every uncool activity in highschool again because it was a military I was on the Supply Corps where we supplied the uniforms and and rifles and things like that I I was on newspaper I was in a yearbook May.

Has China Won? With Prof. Kishore Mahbubani
"Professor Shore Mahbubani welcome to the Model Majority podcast today my pleasure rejoin you. All right. So to get a conversation started, you know the focus of our interview today is your New Book Has China one, and there are a lot of things over to dive deep into with you on this book. The first thing I wanNA chat about is this notion of the Chinese civilization party as you know, very well, the as an acronym is sort around quite. Casually, in the media in foreign policy circle to describe China as a whole right the Chinese Communist Party and you believe that this is actually quite an inadequate framing to understand China as a country as a people and you believe that by thinking of the CCP as the Chinese civilization party is perhaps a better way to think about it. Why do you think this kind of change in terminology is helpful in helping the United States in particular understand China. I think it would make a huge difference. If the American people came to realize the truth. which is the main mission of the Chinese Communist Party. Is Not export communism to the rest of the world. which was the mission of the Soviet Union's Communist Party. But to try and reform I've and strengthen China's civilization. I what I told you is is a basic of. But most Americans, do not know this basic truth. Because, when they hear the what Chinese Communist, party. The what communists in the American imagination. is by definition somebody WHO's evil and doing bad things. That good a good communist continent, an oxymoron. In America, in American linguistic discourse. So when you when you tell them that they're dealing with the Chinese Communist, party the by definition, they believe they dealing with an evil party that is out to undermine America out to oppose the American values out to diminish. America's standing in the world without realizing. That the core mission of the Chinese Communist, party is is to make China's strong and what's interesting. And to understand how deeply rooted this mission is remember remember the send the words that Chairman Mao us. When the People's Republic of China was established in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, nine, he did not say, Hey, today we celebrate the victory of communism over capitalism and said that he said that she that the keyboards used that China has stood up he said it twice. China has to. So, even chairman mouse goal and he was much more of a communist clearly than the current leaders are in many ways was still China's strong. Too. That's why I think that the communist is. Creates a form of intellectual. Laziness in American minds because they cannot look behind that what the see what is really the purpose and mission. Of the Chinese Communist Party that's why I think that thinking of it as a Chinese civilization party, then they'll begin to realize the most important thing that America in China and live in peace because Chinese civilization is not opposed to American civilization American civilization and not oppose the Chinese civilization and both can live together in peace. Right right. What do you think the US not just a public but really even the foreign policy circle. Right. The folks in DC. The people who are supposed to understand the stuff for living because it's their job. To kind of display, this laziness intellectually speaking, is it just because the Cold War was still such a recent memory I guess for the United States generally positive memory. 'cause we won that we just kind of put the Communist label back to where it was just because it was something that we think we understand. You ask them very difficult question because this is the great. Paradox. About the United States in the United States spent more money. On strategic, think-tanks than any other country in the world I think he spends hundreds of millions of dollars. You not billions of dollars on tragic thing. And yet America the America is the best digit think-tank were. America has the worst thinking in the. And and is shocking for example, though any comes to understanding China? More strategic think tanks very Lisi and using all the conception tariff Nelia the Cold War in the Soviet Union. And then applying it to China, when is clearly not relevant? China. So. The inability. Of the strategic think tanks in in the United States to understand the real nature. Of China. Is actually quite a frightening. Thing to watch today,

Columbia Sportswear's Gert Boyle Faced Down Sexism and Ageism
"Boyle. Grew. Columbia sportswear into a downfield powerhouse is the third Nar five-part series on the origin stories of iconic companies. We originally aired this episode about boils legacy after she died last. November, let's listen back. She was one tough mother and proud of it. Gert Boyle, the ninety five year old Chairman of Columbia Sportswear died earlier this month since then accolades poured in for boil, she was a formidable funny icon of the outdoor apparel world notorious for her resilience and her toughness qualities that empowered her to guide Columbia from near bankruptcy in the early seventies to what the New York.

Gert Boyle was born gertrude lamb from in Germany in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, four, when she was thirteen, the family fled Nazi Germany moving to Portland Oregon there her father lamb from bought the Rosenfeld hat company worried about antisemitism. He changed the name to the Columbia hat company. Columbia evolved from hats to outdoor year including a fishing vest that Gert than a homemaker raising three kids designed. Gertz husband Neil Boyle eventually became CEO of the family business. But in nineteen seventy, the forty seven year, old leader suffered a fatal heart attack. Suddenly Gert found herself at the helm of an eight. Hundred Thousand Dollar Company. She had no idea how Neil had run it nor how she and her son twenty, one year old, Timothy would manage. As CEO of Columbia Gert frequently encountered sexism, but she always had an acerbic comeback as the new. York Times reported Gert recalled that a businessman upon learning. She was the president exclaimed, but you're a woman her answer. You know I noticed that when I got up this morning. Still, the combination of rampant sexism in her inexperience almost killed the company by Nineteen seventy-one. Gert. Agreed to entertain an offer to purchase it. But when the buyer a man offered, only fourteen hundred dollars she custom out and slammed the door in his face wrote Doug Schnitt span who profiled her for outside magazine. Gert said for fourteen hundred dollars. I would just as soon run this business into the ground myself that encounter galvanized Gruden Tim with a combination of unconventional strategies including being the first to use the waterproof fabric.

A string of TV ads showed Gert using her son Tim as a product Tester to prove that they're outerwear was both warm and waterproof. In the first. She had tim dressed in Columbia's famous three layer system. Walk through a car wash. Her favorite one was one in which she drove a Zamboni on a hockey rink. Right over her long suffering son dressed in Columbia gear. Of course, he was lying the ice breathing through a straw.

Mother ads are credited with transforming a little known business into a household name inside the company. Her wit was also on display. She summed up her guidance for other leaders. This way early to bed early to rise work like hell and advertise. She might have added and work like hell. Until the day you die, she made it to the office on her ninety fifth birthday in March and was still having business discussions shortly before her death on November third according to outsides Schmidt's Pon. Gert Boyle will be remembered for many things among them, her belief which she shared often with younger women that a woman could do anything and also her conviction that older workers are assets in the workplace. Indeed, in her nineties, she wrote perhaps my presence in the office offers a message that managers liked to put older workers out to pasture. Out. To lunch.
Betty Ford's Healing Legacy: A Conversation with Susan Ford Bales
"Today, we're joined by Susan Ford Welcome. Susan. You are aid author, photo journalist. The youngest of four children to President and Mrs Ford. We are appropriately here at the Betty Ford Center, where you're also on the board of trustees of the Hazel Betty. Ford Foundation. Your mother's legacy. was as a breast cancer survivor and advocate, and as a woman in recovery, and as an advocate for being a woman in recovery. How has the legacy of your mother? Affected your role here at the Betty, Ford? Center. Wow Her shoes were really big to fill your So when she stepped down from the board and I became chairman. I. Think it was harder than living in the White House actually because. We mother and I come from two different parts of recovery. She is a patient and the family member. So we have very different opinions of things than and what's important to us One of the things that she made me do, which was extremely painful with sit on every city every single committee. And participate on my witness finance. Finance. But I learned it. Sure. And so I feel like she did a great job of preparing me to be chairman. So it's it's just we come at it from a different angle in a different perspective family and children's services is extremely important to me because that's how I was affected by this disease. Did you come to the the role of being the chair here at Betty? Ford, did you come to that reluctantly? No because I had been on the board for cheese, probably fifteen years I'm it had just been a long process Mother was gracious and allowed me to raise my children before I came on the board because I was pregnant when the. Betty. Ford. Center open. So. I don't think I came on the board until my youngest was first grade or second grade, and so she gave me some time to get my children raised in at least in school because it required several days travel and all of that in childcare and all the complications that we go through to participate in something like that. Let's go back a little bit and talk about the history of the Betty, Ford Center there's a lot of people who think that when your mother found her own recovery in the late seventy s, she went to the Betty Ford Center. It wasn't even here now was, how did the Betty Ford Center come to be. Johnson from Eisenhower Medical Center decided that. They wanted to have a treatment and it had been in the plan at Eisenhower for some time, they wanted to have an alcoholic treatment center on the campus. and. So Leonard firestone mother's dear, friend was also on the board of Eisenhower. And so Johnson Leonard. Kinda. Tag. Team. Durham. and. She was really in a recovery about four years. But she agreed and I and I thought that was a very courageous step to be so early recovery. So she came to all of us children and she said. When I'm long gone. You're the ones that are going to have to live with the fact that your mother had A. Drug and alcohol treatment. Centre, named after you. How do you feel about that? Wow, and we also we don't care. I mean. It's what a great Lexi you know. She was one of the first to step out and and share her story So once we got past that it was just a matter of mother and Leonard Raising the money. To get this place started and of course. Way? Back, then in the early nineteen, Eighty S. The Hazel and foundation played a role also in the birthplace. Can you share just a little bit about that? Well, mother spent quite a bit a time when to Hazelton, because Hazelton had done it. So well, they were probably the leaders in the in the sense that they had been around the longest And it was successful There's lots of treatment centers that haven't been successful. Some other went back and spent probably close to a week there visiting with counselors visiting with a staff talking, how do you do this? What did you do? Right? What did you do on? Why? What makes Hazelton successful because we basically wanted to copy what they had done, but in a different location sure who would have ever imagined decades later. The two organizations would come together and I WANNA to come back to that in just a minute. But First Susan I want to address an issue that. Always bothers me and then set the the Betty Ford. Center is seen as a place for. The rich and famous for the exclusive for those who can pay out of pocket. But that's not at all what's happening here is no and less than one percent of the patients here are what we would think of as celebrities. Yes. We've had some celebrities, but so was Hazelton I mean. So as other places everybody needs treatment, it doesn't matter what you do that determines you need treatment. So, and they don't get treated any different than. My Mother didn't get treated any different Long Beach. The women, she shared a room with. So it's the same.

Trump fires TVA chair, cites hiring of foreign workers
"The president today, firing the chair of the Tennessee Valley Authority, the TV a criticizing the federally owned corporation for hiring foreign Workers. President Trump telling reporters at the White House that he was formally removing the chair Skip Thompson and another member of the board, and he threatened to remove other board members if they continue to hire foreign labor. By the way, Thompson was appointed by President Trump as background. The TV A is a federally owned corporation created back in 1933 to provide flood control, electricity and economic development to the Tennessee Valley. That was a region it was hit especially hard during the Great Depression. It covers not only most of Tennessee but also parts of Alabama, Mississippi in Kentucky, as well. A small sections of Georgia, North Carolina and even parts of Virginia. The president is also calling on the CEO to be fired, claiming his $8 million your salary should be closer to $500,000. Informally removing the chairman of the board James Thompson and board member Richard Hold. If the TV a does not move swiftly to reverse their decision to re hire their workers, then more board members will be relieved. We have the absolute right to remove board members on the board makes a decision. I don't make that decision I saw there was an ad on television talking about the amount of money that the chairman makes, and it's a ridiculous amount of money, but we have the right Replace the board and the board is the one the only ones that get the right to then hire a new person. Furthermore, the board must immediately hired that new CEO who puts the interests of American workers. First, the current CEO Jeff Li, Ash is ridiculously overpaid. He earns $8 million a year. Did you know that he's the highest paid government official of any country anywhere in the world? I don't know that Gollum officially a government. It might be a public private. Maybe something is a long time ago, It was established Tennessee Valley, but he gets $8 million a year. So that was just a succession of deep swap things happening on DH. It's a disgrace, but he gets $8 million per year on DH. I can think of about almost 100% of the people I know would take that job and not a very hard job. Not a lot of debt, not a lot of anything, right public services just at those who take these jobs must be focused on the public. Good not on personal profit. He would have taken the job for millions and millions of dollars less. But nobody asked him to do that. Okay, would have gone for less. You could have had him for forming in 15,000,001 million, probably 500,000 year. The new CEO must be paid no more than $500,000 a year, which is still a significant amount more than the president of the United States makes That from the president on the Tennessee Valley Authority again, which was first organized back in 1933 at the start of the FDR
Coronavirus Impact on the Food Industry: Cameron Mitchell Restaurants CEO
"Joining us right now on the topic of small business and what he's seeing is Cameron Mitchell. He's the founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which owns nearly sixty establishments across the United States and Cameron. It's great to see you. It's been a while since we've spoken good morning break plagiary back with you today. So. The first time we talked to you was in the midst of the shutdown when all of your restaurants had been closed down and you laid out a plan for what you were hoping to see. Two weeks ago on March third, I was in Washington DC to meet with my bankers and I expressed them what a great start year we had were up seven percent same store sales record profitability for the first two months of the year. This was March third tomorrow I believe March Eighteenth we will be completely shut down I laid off forty, two hundred people on Monday. The last time we talked to you things we're looking pretty good business was was back and was booming. I think we're going to survive, but it's going to be a while before we get to the hospital we expect to be open in hopefully back to full employment by the end of June or into or end of July somewhere in that neighborhood. So what's happening right now? The best way equate it to is we're in a hurricane in the first. Landfall, the hurricane was back in March fifteenth and. It was is detrimental as it was terrible. It's was We end up getting the money and we're able to get out and get open and it was a lifeline. We would not be here today if it wasn't for the original P P P loan and June came and sales, we're doing pretty good. We're about seventy five percent of last year sales were feeling very optimistic and and when I came to realize is we are really just in the eye of the storm and then July the beginning July head and and the case counts rising. Across the country and met, metropolitan. Areas Rolling back opening guidelines and in further restrictions on our business and sales fell down to now fifty percent of last year and that is just not sustainable. So here we are today you know August second and I feel just as nervous about the future as I did back in the beginning of March when Corona virus was coming over the horizon. So we're looking for a second round of P P P to help us get through the other side and and help us sustain for the future so. And the thing that we're hearing mostly Congress is about the stimulus checks, the unemployment but there are thousands and thousands of businesses like ours out there in the country they're hurting terribly at fifty percent decline a forty percent decline sales we cannot survive. We're losing between five, hundred thousand and a million dollars a month, and we need the additional P P P dolorous in a in a terrible way and you know the the curb puzzle is for a two million dollar cap on that which. last time was ten million dollars and so for a company like ours and many others that reduction of eight million dollars just when we need it, the most is is very difficult for us. Camera now is the decline in your business coming mostly because states or local municipalities have have forced you to not open as much into close things down or much of the decline is coming from people who Are, afraid to go out what and how would you measure that a difference while it's both clearly when you have a reduction in capacity from use spell. Example Beverly Hills we were closed all restaurants California closed for indoor. New York City we were not allowed to open our whole restaurant that was just for the Patio Philadelphia. We're not allowed to open that was got rolled back from August I now to September first. So some of our businesses are not even open yet So but the main driver of that reduction of sales is the increase case cow corona virus around the country and people becoming more and more nervous about going to restaurants even though there's no science dates that that says inherently restaurants, Kobe case outbreaks, her Dr Been Driven by restaurants seating. Indoor and outdoor see. Cameron. What? What are you doing in terms of your relationship with your landlords? particularly in some of those places, the restaurants haven't even reopened yet. Are you getting any forgiveness or any easing of things from them? Well, that's the thing becky you know we had almost all of our landlords help out in some way or another not all but some or most they should say, but that money is just a simple deferral that's So we have an additional three, million dollars we got deferred in. April May and June but that money has to be paid back over various schedules over the next two years. That's just additional debt on the balance sheet, and we come out of this without P P p. one of the things cameras restaurants we built three or four restaurants a year, and if we're saddled with millions of dollars debt if and when we get out of this I don't see a building an aiding the economic rebound in the country in Twenty One and twenty two point further were saddled with all this debt. What have you heard from the the senators you've spoken with on this? I've spoken. Personally to both are centers in the state of Ohio and. They understand our plate and and but I, think they're. All. The negotiation right now over the six hundred, a week stimulus for unemployment benefits. So I don't think it's getting much attention that it needs right now and I hope by the time we get this bill and some sort of agreement between both parties on this bill that we can get this P P P round two stimulus, which has one hundred and ninety billion dollars earmarked for it, which should be more than enough for these companies passed the stress test that show they actually needed. To keep with the original PCP levels P P one camera I want to thank you for the update We we have to check in with you again soon, but we appreciate your time and wish you good

The great broadband divide: Living without high-speed internet access
"Austin, Texas, So many kids weren't online last semester, but the school system had to print and male 40,000 homework packets a week. They resorted to fill in school buses with portable WiFi hot spots and parking them near apartment complexes where a lot of people have no broadband service. Now, you might say Austin shining star of high Tech American cities. According to geese own Austin illustrates the biggest broadband problem of all the vast majority of Americans who don't have broadband Internet access is because they can't afford it because the price is too high. And sure enough, the U. S. Has the third most expensive broadband Internet in the developed world. Mostly because there's not much competition. It's just a money problem and not a problem of putting wires in the ground. We should be complaining about both the lack of actual network infrastructure. In many places, but also the cost. The thing is, we fix problems like this before. In 1930 for only 11% of rural Americans had electricity. President Franklin Roosevelt created the rural Electrification Administration. New lines going up almost everywhere. At the rate of 500 miles a day, and within 20 years, 90% of those homes had cheap, reliable electricity. Now. Over the years, the government has come up with a basket of programs designed to help with Internet affordability and accessibility. Unfortunately, sewn says they haven't always worked as designed. The FCC has now for well over a decade paid out tens of billions of dollars to rule broadband companies to build Internet access. In places where there isn't any And the fact of the matter is is that the government has gotten a very, very poor return on its investment. This FCC and I'll even say you know, the FCC that I work for has not done a very good job of demanding that these companies tell us what they've actually built with the money they've gotten. This is not making the FCC looked too good. I don't think it's incompetence. I think part of it is resource is you know the the FCC staff has shrunk enormously. In the last decade or so, where to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the FCC chairman a Jeep. I declined our request for an interview. But in a written response, the FCC says We ensure efficient cost effective spending on subsidies for rural broadband. Earlier this year, Congress passed a law requiring the FCC to improve the way it measures Internet access. But the FCC says that nothing will happen unless Congress also pays for it. The FCC simply does not have the $65 million we need to start the process and implement that law through its first year. Meanwhile, the agency is promoting new technologies like five g, cellular and low earth orbit satellites that might address our broadband problems someday. But for now, most seem to agree on one thing. Especially these days, the Internet should be considered a necessity.

"And it's been such A. It's such an interesting challenge to say the least I there's. You know historians GonNa be writing about this period of our history. I think for a long long time. There's no way to. There's no one word that sort of sums it up, but you know. Something I I know.

"Is the process? They undertook to make the decisions and ultimately surfacing that flawed assumption and anyway it was sort of clearinghouse clearly. Noah's hiding anything. It was a set of engineering decisions that ended up being wrong and our job now is to make sure that whatever processes we have whatever prices are regulator has that those processes never allow for this to happen again that that assumption just because history suggested it was a great assumption just because history and the record suggested that turned out. It wasn't right and we have to test that every day. But you know representative defies. You'll last week. You were watching the hearings. He said look. There was an email that was sent from a Boeing chief technical pilot that Dennis Muilenburg and some of the executives were aware of that essentially brought to to light this question of whether or not executives were aware of concerns. With 'em CASS. I've talked to a lot of pissed off pilots. They said we were the backup system. Can we be backup. We don't know something's going to take over our plane they are There's quite a bit of discontent out the aviation community about that. Was the board aware of that. Before Ethiopia crash separate the first of all the I am was discover covered and turned over to the authorities that we were meant to turn it over to the question you're asking is when it was written was it surfaced then as a concern was at fleshed out. Is there a broad culture question. The answer is it wasn't do we wish I should had. Yes what did have resulted in something different around that assumption. That went wrong. I'm not so sure that I would hope hoped that it would. But none of that happened so our job is to make sure that it will happen. I do not believe that. Instance that isolated instance is indicative indicative of a cultural problem. I have not seen that in the many touches that I have had because you know they yesterday. Representatives Representative Larson. They sent a letter to the rest committee and they essentially said there's a culture of concealment of not being one hundred percent up front when it comes to safety and I just don't I just don't see that I don't I believe it. I have many touch points inside Boeing. I always have that question of culture and anybody's willingness to trade safety against anything else. Never seen it never touched it. Don't believe now. Don't confuse that our culture on this subject can get better. We can do more with visibility. Everybody knows that we can strengthen all the independent arms that are meant to put judgment against every decision in favor of safety we can strengthen those we can increase sort of authority across the company and those are the steps that we are going to take Joe in your view. What's the right right balanced between the company and its employees and the cooperation with regulators in the the FAA? Obviously the I can't imagine and the FAA trying to certify something without a close working relationship with the company and yet if it's too close then figure bigger than maybe the FAA is doing Boeing's bidding Ford. So how do you get that balance right from here on out because that's going to be something that people look at closely honestly I. That's a great question that definitely came up in the hearings. I just don't want anybody to be confused. Reform will happen. Form has to happen the system. Let everybody down. I totally understand that delegation of authority over a fairly lengthy period of time has delivered incredibly strong results that safety record demonstrates that and the involvement of the most technical of the team at Boeing and their involvement in that process good one if a rebalancing has to happen by way of reform so be it so be it. I get that I think both both the FAA and ourselves will look hard at these La Carte at all of these a practices we will attempt to improve on our own and we will encourage reform four at every at every.

You're listening to squawk pot with more from our exclusive interview with David Calvin Boeing's chairman of the board. Here's becky quick Dave we we've had people analysts and others who have come on the show and defended Boeing saying look if they think a big part of the problem with this was a lack of pilot training and some of these incidents. Do you think that this was a situation. Where pilot training wasn't up to snuff or was this an actual problem with the system and the design? Becky there were a a lot of contributing causes. My our job is to fix. Fix 'em gas and make sure whatever inputs ultimately come about in that cockpit at that moment do not create a pin known him. There is no question. The fundamental assumption we designed around was flawed with respect to how a pilot would react. And that's our job is to fix that assumption and work with that man machine interface with all of our customers and all of the regulatory authorities around on the world. If you ask me that is the that is the center of the issue that has to be addressed as we go forward and develop every next new airplane. The the sensors were you had to put trust in at the end caps was reading. There have been people that said that pilot tournament flying planes anymore. More is too much automation at this. Point is if a pilot and was actually more involved with the takeoff than just relying on software elsewhere in an automated systems. Would the same thing have happened to these guys. Fly planes anymore. Cancer the second part. Because it's speculative live in nature pilots to fly airplanes less and less in terms of controlling them up in flight. But I do think we're past a sort. SORTA that that moment we are going to have to deploy automation. We are GONNA have to ultimately almost almost make these airplanes planes fly their own. Make no mistake. I wouldn't want to get on an airplane without fat pilot their judgment their behavior at moments of critical local importance is. That's why get on an airplane. So forget my life at Boeing. A and so we're going to do everything in our power to make their job easier and it will likely increase the level automation in the cockpit. What spellings relationship with the new head of the FAA he? He seemed like he was irritated with with the company at least in recent weeks a- based on some of the release of information that had gone to the criminal investigation but not necessarily to the FAA. Can you tell us what the latest development is in that and your latest conversations. Well Dennis appropriately apologized for that situation in. None of us are. Nobody's happy about that. He's exercising his independent. Says the regulator. So I don't even want to suggest gest. There is a relationship our respect for the role. He is in and our respect for the judgments he has to make over the next Next month or two I don't again I don't Wanna I don't WanNa suggest we have one. He's doing his work. He's doing it the right way. And he's going to listen to everybody inside his regulate Regulatory Authority and make sure that everyone is comfortable. This airplane is in fact as safe as we believe it has dave let me ask you about the airlines. Your customers customers Gary Kelly. CEO of southwest was on our air not long ago. And he's very upset. I mean he came out and said I'm not happy with Boeing it all and they are going to consider looking at Airbus as a possibility to find a future. I've been very clear. We're not happy where we go from here is a question. I've also made clear that will address next year as to whether or not the strategy that we've deployed for forty eight years is the one that we want for the next like forty eight years but you guys have been to in a pod. Since they started in nineteen sixty seven he said that. What did you think? I said sort of good for that Gary Gary. Rei I've known for a very long time he is. He's a fantastic.

"I think that would be a good part of the package and then finally i wanted to point out that many democrats and not just those on the quote far left have been talking more and more more about unions right they <hes> <hes> better work as come out in favor of ouija boards buddha judge who may or may not be a moderate but he's he came came up with very strong union package and this is about helping to ensure better distributed growth obviously vice president biden is also a big labor supporter quarter and is supported by labor so i think going back to the union argument in china to wages is something that i'm seeing across the <hes> you know the rain democrats rich which aside from the the one very obvious suggestion for republicans in congress to make which is stop the trade war. Stop causing unnecessary disruptions in the global trading system. What what is there for republicans. Who aren't the president's proposal because i feel like this is this is always a problem for ideological conservatives at a time when the economy is starting to look weak that they have this idea that you know the government's government's not supposed to manage the economy <hes> they periodically indicate skepticism about the idea that fiscal stimulus even works to support the economy so what what should republicans be saying. We should do if people are nervous. Besides don't cause more problems with china. I think in general you should advocate policies good for economic growth in the long term rather going for a sugar high <hes> in a downturn in real crisis situation which we were an o._a. And oh nine but obviously the the trade war is the the major problem here and problem is the presence not going to back down from it anytime soon and <hes> the chinese are sensing weakness which which is why the what would have been seen by some points views conciliatory move and putting off these <hes> consumer oriented tariffs that we're gonna come on. I was read by the chinese not illegitimately as a sign of weakness an assigned that trump realized that the tariffs is supposed to be hurting china also hurting here at a time when our economy may be slowing down so he lost leverage in the chinese are exploiting that at the moment i still think there is chance of some minimalist deal <hes> what kind of paper over these differences going into twenty twenty <hes> but maybe it's just gonna be contention all the way through. There's another big economic story that i want to address. It's also an environmental policy story which the trump administration has proposed to partly rollback auto emissions rules that had been imposed under the obama administration. Those rules were set to require automakers to gradually but very significantly unle increase fuel economy through two thousand twenty five ultimately they were supposed to reach an average of fifty seven and a half miles to the gallon across car and truck fleets instead the trump says they will freeze the guideline at just thirty seven miles to the gallon and they're proposing to take away states power to impose their own more stringent rules which california has done for decades. Now california says stripping stripping them of that power is illegal. They're fighting trump's rule in court and there's a coalition of automakers. That's really upset about the uncertainty. This creates about what regulations they're going to operate under whether they're gonna have to sell vehicles for two different internal markets in the u._s. So they've reached an agreement with california to essentially follow the rolled back obama rule even though trump says they don't have have to that's honda ford volkswagen b._m._w. Mercedes benz is also about to sign up to this coalition. According to the new york times on the times also reports. The president is outraged about this he. I believe this plan is going to grow the economy. Although consumer reports estimates that his approach with lower fuel economy would actually cost consumers thousands of dollars over the life of their cars due to higher fuel consumption and <hes> tony..

"But for businesses who are making planning decisions on hiring investing and <hes> you know the the idea that they that companies can just sort out the new supply chains that have been built up over decades <hes> that they can do that in in a short period of time is not at all realistic and so it it is <hes> causing <hes> adjust adjustments and very likely <hes> you know source of instability for <hes> for <hes> for the economy so so on q. after chairman's powell speech <hes> president was out with strong criticism of power and adding to that uncertainty once again in <music> <hes> in ways that now. I suppose we should expect it now. I think you know we we treat trade. Even pow in his speech today talked about trade need a variable factor things that will go up and down and change and i think we should maybe rethink that that <hes> uncertainty <hes> in the trade situation should now be considered a constant and probably should be considered a constant by the the f._o._m._c. felicia. Is there an opportunity here for democrats to sort of seize the narrative on on the the economy. I don't i don't mean the sort of long-term restructuring the economy stuff. I mean to come out right now and say yes. The economy is at risk of recession because of irresponsible things. The president santa's doing here is our package of things that we believe will help stabilize the economy. Let's do it infrastructure package now. They could propose some sort of tax rebate which i assume they would prefer over a payroll tax cut that would be a rehashing the fight that we had ten years ago in the last rescue basically being out there and saying here we have a short term plan for what we're going to do to stop trump recession from happening happening and you get one of two things either the president would ignore them and then they can go out on the campaign trail and say we have a plan even though he doesn't have a plan or he gets desperate. Maybe maybe he actually takes them up on it and they can work out. You know can finally be infrastructure week. It seems like either way that goes that would be a win for democrats right and i do think that <hes> democrats are actually really moving in that direction. Let me just point out one thing about the fundamentals before we think about what democrats might do in the short-to-medium term. We say a lot that wage growth is up especially ashley at the bottom of the incandescent island that is actually true and that is good but that basically has only gotten us back to neutral given where we would have been without the two thousand eight two thousand has nine financial crisis and i think you can't overestimate that when you look at our our larger politics with respect to what you know democrats could proposed oppose now. I do think some kind of tax rebate. <hes> would be popular in the medium term ultimately though i think the democrats are already on board award with higher taxes especially relative to the two thousand seventeen law so i do think that is and that obviously tate's legislation but that is where <hes> i think the entire party hardy is going to go. I do think that with respect to public spending on some kind of infrastructure that could get us some way towards you know <hes> green a a green new deal..

"The corporate forms should have pro growth effect over time all things being equal. All things are equal a little hard to <hes> <hes> determine the specific effect of that and at the same time. There's this big tax cut. Their tax increases is in the form of tariffs and the effect of the tariff seems to be <hes> pretty severe and the options here aren't great.

What did you make of what happened on friday. We're basically the the federal reserve has its annual conference out in jackson hole where people get together and they talk about monetary policy and other other things. The fed is up to in jay. Powell chairman gave this anticipated speech that i basically went as expected where he described things that are similar to what he said. After the last fed meeting that we're the notes from that meeting that there are various things that are weakening the global economic outlook including the increased tensions about trade globally and those are factors is that sort of pushed toward <hes> a a reason for the fed to think about maybe accommodating some more doing what he keeps describing as a mid cycle adjustment <hes> they did this a couple of times in the nineteen ninety s where were they cut rates three times even though the economy wasn't going into recession so that seemed like about as expected la things in line with what he said in the past and the president freaked out and said said well. You know who's our bigger enemy. Is it jay powell or is it chairman she and then the president announced another round of retaliation towards china knocking hundreds of points off the stock market. We started the segment talking about well. The president has control over trade. He wants economic outlook to look better. The best thing he can do is try to back off on the trade war but it looks like when when he gets upset his instinct instinct to escalate their yeah that seems to be the direction that he'll <hes> just instinctively go and and <hes> i don't know who <hes> <hes> set expectations for the president which powell speech but it seemed the from his tweets before <hes> pile speech that he had some anticipation that maybe powell's gonna announced some kind of <hes> <hes> plan to <hes> to accelerate the <hes> the the mid cycle adjustment and even you know indicate <hes> <hes> <hes> <music> <hes> bigger cuts to come in in the future so i don't know if that was his own expectations or if one of his economic advisors led him to believe that powell is going to be there but his reaction was was was pretty volatile clearly did not read <hes> you know what what palestine and was was trying to say when you know one very clear quote in powell speech speech was where he notes that there are no recent precedents to guide any policy response to the current <hes> situation he's referring to the the uncertainty and volatility in the trade situation and how that that is a drag on the economy is creating enormous uncertainty for not just for investors offers.

"About. There have been these public comments events about you know maybe a cut in payroll taxes and the president keeps changing his mind about whether that's something he's interested in or not <hes> other ideas. The post says have been floated inside. The white house are further reduction. The corporate income tax rate to fifteen percent of the tax law from from the end of two thousand seventeen cut that rate from thirty five down to twenty one. They've been talking about somehow having a rotating instructor for board members on the federal reserve so that they wouldn't <hes> all get to vote on rates every time which is not a thing the president can just do and i can think of some reasons why you wouldn't do that through legislation. They've been talking about a tax on currency transactions that would aim to weaken the u._s. dollar so it's sort of you know. It seems like the the white house perceives it. There's a problem here they. They're not even to the point of figuring out what kind of policies they want. Let alone a legislative strategy but a lot of these ideas especially the corporate tax rate cut. It's like they haven't. They haven't rocked the idea that there's a democratic majority in the house of representatives. It seems completely different from the policy conversation. She might have if you thought you know we might need a fiscal stimulus stimulus soon. What can we come up with an zone of agreement between democrats and republicans to get that done right exactly with respect to the corporate tax they clearly have not learned their lessons either either politically or with respect to policy. You know you just mentioned this. Josh we already saw a cut from the mid thirties to twenty one and while we've seen some kind of sugar high most of that money has been actually used to finance share buybacks. We haven't done anything real in corporate taxes which would include taking measures to bring some money money that is currently <hes> offshore back to the united states some some corporate tax revenues but i also wanted to add something further. Which is that a lot of the conversation number season right. Now in the media suggests that you know the economy's fundamentals are actually strong but it's both it's just trump's erratic international behavior and or the trade trade war driving these recession fears but i would argue that that's not quite right. The economic fundamentals seem strong but there's actually a lot of reason to worry. I mean growth is weaker than anyone on in either party might like second quarter growth plummeted to close to two percent. We would argue at the roosevelt institute. Did that's because of weak demand. <hes> you know average hours worked in manufacturing in july. Were at the lowest level since twenty eleven monopoly concentration is up business investment is down. There is a lot of reason to really worry about this economy and you're right josh that i think you could get a lot of bipartisan agreement on some kind of stimulus. I just don't think you're gonna see leadership on that. From this white house i mean rich to fleece point one problem with for the president going out there and talking about the need for policy property economy is that we just had this tax cut and one of the arguments the tax cut was supposed to be there was going to boost the economy and even even the sugar high that felicia references we got a a revision in statistics from the bureau of labor statistics which sounds like a walkie dolphin l. thing but basically knocking about thirty thousand jobs a month off job growth for the last couple of years so that's still shows significantly positive job growth but it no longer looks like job growth even necessarily got any better in the aftermath of the tax cut so if they're going to go back and say we have to cut taxes again. It's basically an admission that this thing we said would boost growth hasn't done anything for growth. I think a lot of the the tax cut at least the on personal side doesn't really have a big growth effect..

"And you know the the conundrum for <hes> <hes> spokespeople at the white house at treasury in even the fed is to not <hes> you know inspire <hes> market participants to pull back in and not make economic decisions because you could could be self-fulfilling so i've bhai sympathies with having to answer the question of you know do you are you concerned about a recession coming and if <hes> if the white house answers that question of course we're concerned about a recession and we're we're paying attention to it. That's the headline all across the country if not the world and <hes> if they say wh-what recession we're not you know there's no recession on the horizon then they just look aloof and they have a hard time making the case for maybe the kinds of policy changes they would need to try to mitigate <hes> an economic downturn. So what should they be proposing to do right now. I mean you have the president <hes> out there. Just on friday escalating the trade war china announced new tariffs. The president said that he would be announcing a response to it. He said he's ordering u._s. Companies to find alternatives to china china. The market fell hundreds of points on that statement from the president. It seems like the one policy area most directly in his control is trade policy <hes> where the signals from the the market or negative and the comments from fed chairman jay powell or that the global trading situation is a drag on the economy <hes>. It seems like he would start there. It is the trade is the is the one area where he can make a have a real policy impact and you know he's he's taken to mostly job owning the fed into being looser on <hes> on on <hes> monetary policy although we should put this in historical perspective the fed has been you know the the interest rates are incredibly low. <hes> historically really speaking they still are accommodative relatively relative to where the economy is right now <hes> but he'd like to see more action from <hes> from the fed <hes> <hes> it is entirely in his hands to do more on the trade front in fact actually even just encouraging words. We've seen over the past few months if he indicates a a <hes> <hes> a softening with <hes> with the chinese or the willingness to meet and talk the market reacts in a very positive way so it is very much in his hands to to do that <hes> and to come to some kind of process movement with <hes> with the chinese i think would be very welcome by <hes> by <hes> financial markets and businesses also who have been holding back investment decisions the other thing is you can do actually other policy changes can propose policies <hes>. He's tried to do some of that in the past last week but it's clearly these are clearly things that have not been very well thought out things like the payroll tax or indexing capital gains <hes> they're very long legislative trains on on those possibilities and it's congress's probably not <hes> in a mind to move tax legislation right now. The one great great irony in this of course is that before the midterm elections. The president announced that we know it wasn't really true at the time but he announced that they were working on a ten percent tax cuts. If if they had actually been working on a ten percent middle class tax cut as he as he announced they might have something ready to go right now that they could <hes> that they could move forward but that's sort of evaporated raided yeah felicia to tony's point about sort of half baked policy brainstorming in the white house the the the washington post had an interesting story this week about what they're talking about..

"They've had this this group that was going to bring the omar and retreated to leave on that trip to to the west bank. <hes> isn't this isn't that something that we're now seeing on the republican side as well as the president buys into a lot of these things things that you're really not supposed to think or say i think our guest characterize him as kind of filo semitic stereotypes so they're not meant maliciously but if you follow follow the the string down they take you to a bad place and first of all obviously president should not be talking about in these terms about anyone any group in any circumstance and and it was just his way of saying the democrat party is swinging the wrong way on these issues that toledo in omar away out there which they are but he put it in a disturbing terms fleischer. Well you know i think he's also trying to the president is also trying to use this as a wedge issue. You and i think it's fundamentally misguided. I mean the idea that american jews don't have a range of interest in addition to israel climate may many any jews i know are concerned about rising white nationalism anti-semitism so the whole effort seems ludicrous and i'd also point out that american jews voted seventy one percent for hillary rick linton and in the midterms that number went up almost ten points. It was closer to eighty percent so if what trump thinks he's doing here is trying to peel off jewish voters. I think it's going to be really tough sledding. It reminds me of the way the president talks about black voters which is to say it's it's making a judgment about what a particular voter group ought to care about ought to vote on when he talked about black voters was he goes out and talks about you. Know unemployment is so low at so low for african americans. I've done all these things for you.

They're not even going to produce a communique at the end of the conference saying what they agree on but now french president has an annual mccoll says he wants to at least talk about the damaging fires in the brazilian amazon as a key focus which means the president will again be fighting with foreign leaders over climate change later in today's show will discuss that and also the disjointed white house response to increasing concerns over the state of the global economy.

"Governor, Jerry Brown has not indicated whether he will sign or veto the net neutrality Bill sitting on his desk, but the chairman of the FCC is now weighing in with his opinion. Larry. What is he saying? Well, he's claiming that if feel legal with the pie who the chairman appointed Republican chairman and of course, you know, the FCC repealed the network neutrality Bill that with our like they rule that with path by the laughed FC where the Democrats were in charge. Phil, California, along with a few other states have taken upon themselves to create their own network neutrality Bill within the state, and that have been passed by the legislature. It's waiting the governor's signature. I'm assuming the governor will find it, although I'm not certain about that, but the bottom line is at the FCC chairman claiming that this should all be done on a national basis on a federal basis that you can't break up the internet into little state that it all has to be done in a coordinated way. However, another argument it's been made by Scott Weiner legislator who with behind what are the. Behind this Bill is at the FCC essentially abandoned its control over the internet or lethal. I should say not of the internet over over of network trout net neutrality and this nation because they have essentially repealed it. Also, the other argument could be made that internet service providers operate within states. I mean, yes, com, ca, Comcast, and others maybe national, but they're operating within California. So they could very well create a law that only applied California as Weiner points out to pied did not weigh in on the whole debate over Verizon throttling data for firefighters during that big wildfire. That's right. And this has become very polite or know why that would be political. But certainly the entire net neutrality debate has become very political, but the fact that the FCC has basically said, hey, we're not going to get involved. You know, we're, we're just basically going to allow it to happen and I don't know anything. You know, this is something I guess could be tested in court, but certainly the state of California had the vested interest to try to protect it's own citizens and we'll have to see whether a court might rule.
