"Chief legal officer at spotify. So let's talk about the us eu. We are living through. What a handful of very smart people have told me is like a natural ab test in regulatory policy. The united states has a very deregulatory approach are interest policy is based on something called consumer welfare. Which is very focused on pricing effects. That means we've done. Virtually no regulation at all. The eu has an interest policy based on ensuring competition which means those regulators are very active in insuring competition. They do a lot of things all of the time. How do you see those approaches playing out right now and you worry that you know. One of the promises of the internet is kind of immediate global market access. Do you worry that as those approaches splinter that the power of the internet market is going to shrink over time. Listen when i think of antitrust policy in the us. I i really think you have to take a broad lance and look at the long history of antitrust enforcement people say well you know we have a we have a more darwinian mindset when it comes to competition and so it's a more or less a fair thing with the reality. Is you know anti trust. Law was created in this country. And at sometimes that. Us has been at the forefront of that and in some You know there's a kind of a pendulum swing that it goes to the appetite of governments to take certain cases on the you see the microsoft case was the last one that went through the appeals process. But now you see the doj even during the last administration file cases against other other technology companies. You know you likewise astride a number of things and it's developed their own set of cases and they're all line of things but in many respects the while you could say the sources of the legal philosophy in the legal history of the two systems as has been slightly different. They're more similar than they're different. And you know. I think right now. What we're reacting to is the fact that over the last decade or so there has been little enforcement in the. Us are when it comes to this. Unilateral conduc cases which in europe are called abusive dominance part of that is there's a series of case law that has really created a very deferential sort of approach which is super hard for the department of justice or the ftc or somebody else to bring cases. But that's just a moment in history if you listen to the policy debates that that's happening right now on capitol hill in universities. If you look at the people who are leading this work in the ftc and the doj you can tell there is a we are witnessing another step in the evolution of our policy when it comes to these things which is normal considering that we're facing this unprecedented technological revolution with with mobile computing and these platforms achieving a level of success. An influence over every aspect of the economy that not even standard oil. At and t. Hat of their time. These platforms affect every aspect over lax to extend that. Not even the windows. Operating system did twenty years ago or at&t or any of these other companies so these are unprecedented challenges that requires thoughtful thinking through and by the way we are not advocates. Some radical set of rules. We are super sensitive to the fact that the incentive to continue to innovate to continue to improve the quality including incentive for apple to continue to improve their products needs to be protected. A needs to be there but it isn't an either or thing it is an all or nothing we're talking about surgical things that go. After specific decisions apple made for self serving purposes that we think can and should be reversed. We're not talking about taking away. Apple will earn right to enjoy the fruits of their labor and their innovation of the great products that they've created. We had senator amy klobuchar show of ago. She gave me the long history of american antitrust law and certainly europe import a lot of that and then the us diverged. I take that point. But i look at the eu approach. Over the past. ten years. And i see a lot of direct intervention in how products work in an effort to introduce competition. They introduced browser ballot on windows. They broke apart chrome in search from android. There's now a search ballot and android the eu has been chasing after google for a decade and they have not managed great conditions for there to be meaningful competitor. Search is is any of this working like that. That's the question. I have in the united states. We've done nothing in google's dominant search engine in europe. They've done a lot of things in google's dominant search engine. Is there another way forward to actually creates competition. I think you're right. They're they're being sort of A little bit of trial and error especially when it comes to remedies. I think when you look at the cases in in europe you may think that the particular approach that they took to try to remedy the anticompetitive behaviour and try to restore market conditions. In some cases were not effective in other cases they were somewhat effective. In some cases they might have been effective especially when you're talking about mergers and some structural remedies and things like that. But do you know trying to balance an effective remedy that doesn't overshoot. The mark and create more harm is is very hard so there is a learning process. There is a trial and error process. And sometimes this case has stayed long because the rights of defense of the companies involved want to be respected so if they were shooting from the hip and they were imposing draconian remedies. You and i would have been completely different conversation today. I think what you're what you're seeing is. A result of regulators are trying to grapple with the economic implications of these things and trying to tailor remedies that solve the core of the problem without creating all over the collateral damage. That that we would decry decried. Yeah but the problem. In europe is a google has ninety percent market share and then like eight companies have a slice of ten percent one of those companies is microsoft which is not hurting for money in their interventions have not changed that number in ten years so it might be targeted remedy. But i i think it's fair. Asked remedy is effective at all. Yeah i mean that's a legitimate question. And i'm sure depending on who you ask them will give you a different answer. I think google thinks it's been very effective. But i also think that sometimes the problem you're trying to solve the evidence of being solved is not necessarily going to be market share. You know there's many reasons why a company my might have reached a a high market share based on completely legitimate pro-competitive reasons because they have a really good. I'm not saying i'm not talking about a particular case. So the measure cannot be you know has the market share come down. That is the wrong way to judge these cases. The measure needs to be. Are you creating space for competition. Are you creating space for market to to compete. But it's coming up on. The competitor still have products. That are good enough. Innovated enough an economically attractive enough to actually go and challenge for market share a particular product. And i don't know that you can burden one or a set of address decisions with creating that outcome but you have to do is create the environment for competition and then see if the market the sides and you know again. These companies are very innovative and a lot of what they do is legitimate and frankly the more competition there is the more they will invest in innovation on the better. There will be that is the virtuous cycle that you want to read. You mentioned the word gatekeepers earlier. Which i'm guessing is a reference to propose digital markets act in europe that law would basically had a set of rules by which dominic platforms will be classified as gatekeepers. And then they would have to do a bunch of interoperability. There'd be prohibitions against self preferencing their own services a lot of the themes. I've talked about the last big. E regulation was the gdp are the general data protection regulation. I have a vantage point united states. I don't see it..

"We're saying is they actually prevent competitors from coming in and offering tournament payment systems and therefore there is no market there is a monopoly and payment systems which is why they can afford to impose the thirty percent. Let the market decide enable pay paypal mastercard and other new payment systems to come in and then let let users decide vote with their dollars on whether apple's technologies so superior when it comes to payment and all these other things that they're willing to pay thirty percent more but the market is really complicated because the market for payment processing service is not consumers. It's app developers. But the market for privacy and security is consumers right. So how do you connect those two markets such that you're saying to regular people. We're investing all of this stuff in keeping you safe. Which is apple. And you're saying to spotify and epoch and whoever else our technology solution is better such that. It's worth more money than pal. Well iraq developers had their choice of offering more than one payment system. They would decide which one is better for their products and then users ultimately would decide whether they want to use those services or or not so. Yeah the decision. On which payments systems to incorporate would be left to the apps and users will decide which apps they trust. That's the way it has always worked. That's the way it works on most other platforms outside of the mobile operating system device. That is actually the way that it that it should work. So that there's real competition but developers don't have that choice developers can't even tell you even if you had a system in which you said what you have to offer apple payment systems as a as a choice but you can tell users there others by the way. Here's a price difference. You can go with the apple. Inap- purchasing system that your product will be thirty percent more expensive or you could use this one that has paypal. Technology provider will be thirty percent. Cheaper let users aside..

"So there's a lot of very interesting internal communications. That really reveal the way apple executives worth thinking about the app store and the imposition of the apple's payment system and their intend to lock in users and things like that so obvious in that sense. The trial has been very revealing. the other thing is you know. it's remarkable how little we learned about apple's explanation for these things. They continue to go back to the same protect jewel explanations for why they do what they do. They continue to say. Well we have to protect the privacy and security of our users and that's why we have to charge thirty percent and have all these other restrictions. But how can it be indispensable for them to do all those things in order to protect privacy and security when they don't even apply those rules to you know a number of other apps that are on the app store with that essentially. There's really a disconnect between the explanations that they're trying to give and the reality the oldest struck me is how disingenuous it is that they would say that nobody's ever looked at the economics of the app store. Nobody's even ask the question. How much money does the app store make. I mean you're talking about tens of billions of dollars of revenue based on the estimates. That are out there. This is not like the budget line for your printer. Toner at apple. This is a huge sum of revenue. And i think it defies tradition for apple to say they're not doing this for the money and don't even they haven't even asked how much money they're making their so there's a number of these that have come out that are quite telling about the way that apple has thought about these things internally and there's a clear anti-competitive pattern behind their actions so let me push you on this a little bit one. There were multiple sealed documents in sessions. That obviously you. And i didn't get to see but as far as the public discovery epic wasn't able to find anything any charts presentations or graphs or financial results. That would prove apple was actually keeping track of pino profit and loss. So you think epic would be laser focused on trying to find that and as far as we are aware in the public record. They were not able to but second. I do. Take apple's point that they're exertion of control over. The platform is required to keep people safe from the massive number of threats that everyday users of internet services face. So if you don't want to see a massive amount of extended credit card fraud it is better for apple is hold on the credit cards. If you don't wanna see a massive amount of social engineering it is better for apple to more tightly control in a facebook has a lot of thoughts about that. But i i take that point. I think that the question is how does it relate to thirty percent is the rate right. That's exactly the point that i was trying to make the connection between the need to charge thirty percent of all revenues generated by apps that compete with apple's for the most part in perpetuity thirty percent forever of the subscription revenue that is generated. How does that in any way. Connect to the desire to keep users data protected and to keep them secure if there is a connection why then they only charge the thirty percent mostly to digital content and and gaming applications and not to walmart or know facebook or uber or other things like that. It's a complete completely arbitrary construct and it is not justified by privacy security. Let me say by the way apple should have enough of a parceling saint that in the billions of dollars that they generate from selling devices like iphones and ipads to keep user. Say that's where the bulk of the revenue comes. Having users data be protected and users be secure for is one of the selling point of those devices notion that all of a sudden they would stop investing in privacy and security protections if they didn't have the thirty percent tax imposed on the acts absolute is just ridiculous and it really defies could do so the rate in the negotiation around the rate or the lack of negotiation. The rate feels like the issue. If i could wave a magic wand and set that rate of fifteen percent would you be happy. Yeah well let me take issue with your premise. That the issue is not whether the rate is thirty or fifteen or ten. The issue is that the rate is arbitrary and they get to set it unilaterally because they've insulated themselves competition. What should happen if apple should be able to charge thirty or fifty percent if they can convince users in a market economy that value that they provide justifies the thirty percent or the fifteen percent of the fifty percent..

But it's all part of a trend if you've been listening to decoder diverge just following tech news recently you probably know. There's a lot of government interest around the world in managing the size and power of big tech companies.

There's a trial between epic games which makes fortnight and apple epochs suit apple nine months ago claiming that the iphone maker unfairly restricts competition for app distribution inept payments and requested sweeping remedies from the court including allowing other app stores on apple devices. That trial took three weeks that involve testimony from both apple. Ceo tim cook and epoch.

But if you were able to buy a kindle book in the kindle app for ten dollars three of those taller would go to apple amazon. Doesn't wanna pay money. Which is why you cannot buy books in the kindle app on the iphone. It is a weird situation now. Epa claimed at all of this is anti-competitive. We had a trial. We're not expecting a decision from that trial for weeks. If not months but i wanted to understand what all of this legal maneuvering means. We've and how involving courts and politicians in the workings of our phones would actually make them better. There's some fuzziness there right. I don't think it's obvious to most people that having politicians redesign our phones is a good idea. So i really wanted to push her.

Because if you can't make that case then we just moving money around. I also asked if he sees a connection between how he perceives apple and how musicians perceive spotify. They're both huge companies that most working creatives. Don't get to negotiate. With an spotify buying up big chunks of the podcasting ecosystem giving a dominant position in fast growing industry cross unsurprisingly push-back on these comparisons a range of from spotify loud and clear website that lays out. Exactly how how much pays artists around the world. But as all of these companies get bigger the dynamics supplant between platforms and creators feel eerily similar.

Arkansas AG On Google Antitrust Suit: 'I Don't Want What Google Says Is Best'

"The Department of Justice is suing Google accusing it of being quote a monopoly gatekeeper for the Internet Google's worth about a trillion dollars, which is very big and the DOJ says it's abusing its dominance over smaller rival companies Google's chief legal officer Kent Walker Calls Lawsuit Deeply. Flawed in a statement eleven republican state attorneys general join that suit including Arkansas AG. Leslie Rutledge who's with me now, and before we start talking I, want to note that Google is a financial sponsor of NPR Good Morning Ms Rutledge. We're good morning. Thanks so much for having me on today of course state attorneys General I should say were investigating Google what is the most compelling evidence that investigation uncovered that says to you what Google is doing is illegal and we should sue the company. Look correct when people google something they believe that it's free to Google and that they're going to get the best products I Brought up to them on that search engine. But what we have found through those investigations is that Google has manipulated those search engines. They have a exclusivity contract essentially when you buy an apple product and automatically defaults to Google, and when you type something into noodle and populate, you may not be getting the the best products or the best services to you. Rather you're getting what Google you to she, and that's what is so concerning is that they control ninety plus percent of the market space in the search engine world. I'm going to get to the point you're making about default in just a moment but the. Thing that I am very curious about have you gotten specific complaints from your constituents in Arkansas saying Google is making it hard for me to do X. Y. and Z in a way that illegal. But we received thousands of complaints every single week I some about search engine, some about robocalls, and so I don't have those in front of me unfortunately right now. But yes, we receive complaints about people not being able to find perhaps their products not being populated your winds, my product my services can't on page ten of a Google search when it clearly most popular product and it should be on page one. Okay. Let's move to the question of it being the default search engine. So one of the main arguments in favor of Google, the argument that Google would make is it is free in the sense that I am not paying anything when I, you know Google my name, for example, which I try not to do it it is the best. That's Google's argument. And if you want to change your search engine Google says, here's how you do it. In fact, in their statement, responding to the lawsuit actually have instructions on how to change a search engine from Google to say Beng why don't you buy that? It is bad but fault and the reason why we don't produce because again, they control ninety percent plus of beat the market space in this area and so it's not hard to shut out competition when you've already shut out competition and people go has now become a verb it's not simply a noun, it's not simply a suburban so people use it to describe even if they were using being or some other search and they will say, well, let me Google that and they might go to blame. They're not going to say let me bring that and it has. To, be a verb I I get what you're saying, but that's not a leak. That's not illegal but the deceptive trade practices and that's why we're bringing this antitrust lawsuit. Stating that. and. Pushing out the competition where there can be no competition is illegal and that's why we've worked with the Department of Justice Attorney General Bar in these other ten states to bring this suit against Google we want Americans to have the best products. The Best Services I know if my two year old daughter gets sick at night and I'm searching, I'm googling if you will to find a pediatrician or how to help her I, want the back Stalker and the best medication I don't want what doodle says as best I want the actual best and that's what every American wants. When they look for something, we don't want something three just because. We want the best it's free. The lawsuit talks about the need for quote, structural remedies but then it doesn't offer any details. What are the structural remedies that you envision? Are you talking about breaking apart parts of this business? Not, necessarily, no not at all I think it's allowing more competition to come in. There are so many new and innovative models for research emerging. But in order for those models to have a chance, we need google to break it stranglehold over the Internet. So it doesn't mean breaking apart the company it means you're breaking apart the stranglehold breaking apart that ninety plus percent and the market place. You Google doing something voluntarily which many businesses would argue. that. It is not in their interest and they shouldn't do it. Let me ask you. About something about who's joined this suit. So it's eleven republican state Attorney General No Democrats just yet as I understand it historically Republicans. Have not been in favor of many types of government regulation of private business. The trump administration often is not what makes this particular case different but we would. Strongly encourage our democratic colleagues from across the country to join these efforts I know that we've been conversations with him. So this doesn't necessarily have to be partisan effort. We would love to be a bipartisan effort a and yes, we're Publicans we are not. Fond of over regulation by government, how you have a companies or big tech companies. Are Shutting out competition or who are impacting individual some free speech rights and yes, we will step in and that's our job as the chief law enforcement and the chief legal officers of our respective states and working with the Department of Justice. Are you considering signing onto any similar lawsuits against other tech giants? So facebook apple and Amazon Spring to mind. Well, it has making starting in recent weeks months with what we're seeing from big tech companies who are blocking speech on their platforms speech that it's not necessarily violent or destructive, but rather speech if they do not agree with and so we want all Americans whatever plant they're using the of the exercise, their free speech, and to be able to use these platforms and to not be shut out simply for political reasons. As you know in right now we're approaching the number thirty election. Many people are already voting absentee or early voting state and. Signs some big tech companies blocking speeches become very concerning. It is something that we were talking about on a national level. I. Will say that we would need to look a bit further for evidence for that as our tech correspondent Shannon bond has pointed out Leslie. Rutledge Attorney General for Arkansas. Thank you so much. Thank, you have a great day.

General is investigating the trump organization for allegedly inflating the value of its assets to get loans state AJ Latisha James wants a judge to order the trump or to provide documents and compel testimony from the president's son Eric. As executive vice president. Now, according to this filing the younger trump abruptly cancelled and interview with the office. Last month, we should note this civil investigation, not a criminal case in a statement today their chief legal officer said, the company has done quote nothing wrong to that end, we welcome back to our broadcast Barbara, mcquade, veteran federal prosecutor, former US attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan. Counselor. It's good to see you I'd love your read on how much. Legal jeopardy how much real trouble the trump team could be in on this front Well, it depends on the facts Brian, but it could be very serious. We know that Michael Cohen testified before Congress about the trump organization propensity to deflate the value of assets and revenue when it came to filing tax returns, but inflating revenue and assets when it came time to seek loans, and so that is what Latisha James is exploring here and what's interesting about it is. Eric. Trump. Cancelling at the last minute and refusing to appear not wanting to invoke his fifth amendment rights but actually doing so. And so it does appear that they're concerned and have something to hide and when someone has something to hide, it makes prosecutors all the more eager to find out what's inside. What are the odds that we will see him go into testify? Can you just walk around and say now I'm not gonna I'm not gonNA come in there. No you can't. I think the odds are really quite high that he will have to show up. I think this is a stall tactic. We see this time and again I think it is the trump way. The way that he has built the real estate empire is to play hard ball and to assert frivolous legal claims. But everybody has a duty to show up and answer the questions. Now, that doesn't mean he can't assert his fifth amendment rights when asked particular questions but he can't do it in a blanket fashion. He can't say I'm not coming at all. He has to show up I mean she might ask questions like what's your name that's not protected by the Fifth Amendment Privilege but if there are particular questions then at that moment, he has to assert his right then but I think that is the the visual the Specter that he may be trying to avoid because that's when it looks politically perhaps to some like an assertion of the fifth, the Fifth Amendment might be an admission of guilt. And Barb we mentioned civil versus criminal. Is this a potential advantage to him and his dad that this is a civil not criminal matter. Well sometimes, yes. I mean, civil means that the penalties will be money damages and not sending someone to prison. So in that way I suppose civil makes people a little less fearful but in many ways when you are the prosecuting entity thinking about whether you want to proceed civilly or criminally can bring with it advantages and disadvantages. One of the great advantages of proceeding civilly is the burden of proof is much lower. It's only preponderance of the evidence as opposed to the higher guilt beyond a reasonable doubt that's necessary criminal case, and so in some ways, it could be more dangerous for the trump's to be facing a civil investigation because of different legal standard. Final question because Americans love being able to pick it things, they're not supposed to see. Can you manage expectations? There is no expectation correct that at the end of this case, or during this case, people get to take a look at the president's tax returns. It depends you're right. I don't know that we'll see the whole tax returns on display but if the attorney general is able to get her hands on the records, you may see allegations that come out of them in a complaint to civil complaint that would be filed here. So we may see excerpts, and if the case ever went to trial, those textures could end up being exhibits in court in. So in that way, they could be used in the day may come when we actually get to see them.

"Back Scott. I really WanNa talk about trump saying that his reason for taking out Sola Mani was was because he had planned attacks on four. US embassies which which is his people who worked for him can't make any claims to see such intelligence? Meanwhile L. The Democrats are racing to limit Trump's war powers the house approved resolution restrict trump's authority do striking around the Senate voting on that resolution. This week there's a lot of unhappy people in the Senate include Klute lots of Republicans so we reached out to a friend of pivot at New York magazine. Reporter Olivia nause. She of the Rudy Giuliani texting fame as she writes. Amazing work actually is amazing. We should a great Joe Biden. He's recently to for insights. And how might actually affect the trump presidency. Let's go to tape any attempt to check on Donald Trump's towers broad it's going to be faithful somewhat by the fact that he just tweets. Whatever it is he's planning on doing or whatever it is that he's done and and that then ultimately become the United States policy that is how he's making policy probably thinking policy domestically until he bay foreign policy in the past? It's it's how the Military and the national security management as White House staff has learned about visions that he's made. I'm very skeptical. That any action in Congress to rein him in will really be effective when he had access that enabled him to to declare policy push button. Okay well this is a maverick about forces obviously clear who has more power to rain trump in twitter or congress in January a two thousand eighteen for those who do not remember twitter declare that quote blocking world leaders from twitter or removing their controversial tweets would hide important information who is more power voters I. I've talked about this what you can't you can't I don't think I don't think you can take president off twitter but this has he has more power using it. I wouldn't take them off. You know that. I don't think that I think paid advertising is a very different. I like what they did around paid advertising but because of the abuses but I think you don't take them up. I don't know what you do. I don't know what he has an incredible tool in twitter. He's he's using it as a governing vehicle he will go down as the guy that earned the most or gain them. No individual has gained more That isn't a shareholder From social media than the President President is the one hundred forty character president. But it just so strange. Can you imagine she communicating dictating and governing by. Tick Tock I I mean it just. It's just so strange when you somewhat effective it actually is. It makes things happen. Which is amazing and Congress doesn't seem to you know they're sort of in this we're going to restrict the world powers GONNA stop him and it just doesn't like even when he wasn't correct about these four embassies even his own people will get it doesn't matter like he can say it and he's Gone Eh? Repeats it on social media or whether he's on Fox News wherever you. That's another basic error though of communication strategy and that is it's never the action that gets in trouble. It's the cover. If if the administration administration had just come out and said well why why did you kill me like well. He's been the strategists in the sport behind a bunch of proxy battles killed Americans. When you do that eventually when we get an opportunity we take your ass out? I think and then and then that's stop talking stop talking and instead they're like well we had evidence of imminent attacks. That's what they blow it. It's like did they blow it. Does it matter that he lies and then they say don't say anything. One hundred percent of phages said bad guy. We had our shot. We took it end of story next taxed and instead they came out and felt like they had to justify it by lying and saying there. I'm GonNa talk imminent attacks now. We're all and now we're all dissecting what it means the term imminent. They should've should've just said America's memory as long are reaches far. So guess what you kill. American soldiers anywhere sleep. Well boss. We're coming at some point I and then it should have been and as you said seen should've said nothing else need to justify unsteady amount started lying. Yeah I do think the interesting thing is that they are having a hard time knowing what to do with them. It's sort of like a toddler that goes and does everything you can't you try to use all these reasonable ways to deal with them. An old ways running Paul Ryan I was like I was talking to someone. In the way down Eric Eric Anderson and the thing and I was like the reason is is because he was doing it the way it was done. He thought he could handle it. This is the way we did it. And trump ran circles around him in that regard fifteen year eldest. Taking control of the House I can I can handle it and then you know that was I think it was one of his quotes. SUPPO- allegedly said he couldn't and the same thing with twitter. They can't they don't know what to do in. It's very good for them now. You can literally if you look at twitter stock price. It's a smile and a troughed. When trump was elected and it's gone straight or it's recovered substantially attended debt but it's recovered substantially all right trump wins and fails? I'M GONNA go with This Leaving of David Drummond from Google reporting on what kind of give us a little bit of time early days. Well you know he's been there a long time. Let's have one but he was also leaving the company with no exit package. Fine in Sexual misconduct allegations he had been going at. It was a long and complicated story. And he has his point of view and the person who went out with he was with someone someone who worked for him and then he had a kid whether it was a super complicated you know and then she was alleging that he had gone out with more employees. There's now a investigation. He's he's at the center of it. Internal that's reaching all over Google by the way around him. And then the ninety billion dollar exit package given to android Co founder Andy Rubin who was found bound to credible allegations of sexual misconduct. The company led to the Google walkouts in two thousand eighteen. and Larry Page was running the show during all this time right or Eric Schmidt and and Sergei had his own thing around. Somebody went out with work. Who was going out with another person who ran android or you know it just? It's sort of like the the chief legal officer was in charge of WHO probably should have been policy anything you know these startups complicated. A lot of people do go out with each other. So it's it's kind of a you know Larry's to go out with Mercer Mayer a long time ago so you see it's very common starters but I think what it is is that as they got more powerful they didn't put stuff into place. That was very clear later on there and then there was another person over Uber. It just went on and on and on. And there's now these investigations going on around all of that in the management you know. I think what's happening is sooner Pichai whose has been the one to move in and clean some of this up. You could see his sort of invisible hand everywhere. I know his way I think he's cleaning up quietly and I don't know if it's going to be cleaned up quietly quietly. I think this report is probably going to get out in some fashion. Or maybe there's some litigation and and and what he's trying to do is clean it up quietly because he's a good guy and he's actually actually you know and move it away and move Google into the next year but there definitely was very loose management around this particular. They've done a great job in lots of things interesting culture culture interesting way to do business in mazing business itself but in this particular aspect about their personal lives which were very messy within the company in in some ways that were okay Others weren't okay but it was certainly was messy and some of it true sexual harassment. It's just a question of whether sooner can clean this this up quietly. Do you know what I mean. He's like cleaner. I don't know I'm going to talk to him about a little bit about this. When he comes to code soon is definitely? There's gotTa be a new era uh of Google and I think they had to. I move the founder's out and it's linked a little bit to this investigation. Even though they touted as if it's time to move on like why now they've got the Him Moving on David. Who's been there forever? So now all the Eric's gone they moved him out so the question is you know there's no now it's the new era consensually. Yeah and I hope the battery or so. Unfortunately because a lot of this is titillating it makes for Great Click Bait. The conversation here is more around outrage age and and a lot of hyperbole and what I think is Nita. I am hopeful. Doesn't win or not. I think we're moving into the air of what I call the calibration allegation or nuance around this. And that is an important conversation but hopefully a cadillac is is some calibration so some examples. I I'm when I've been in on on media and they can use the term sexual misconduct. They use it as an umbrella to encapsulate CEOS who've had consensual relationships with vendors and people who have attacked women in their office. And there's a difference. Some of these people should be in prison. Some should be fired and I think some of the other calibration that's required here and I think this is where I would move a two or where we're moving to is As someone who serves as a fiduciary for Cheryl's boards of directors and that is when you have a large group of people in a confined space and they're sharing intense experiences and specifically if they're young they're supposed to establish relationships have sex and have children. They're supposed to do that. They're not supposed to abuse their power. You take a risk if you ever do anything with some junior to you. You are opening yourself to liability. But what I've had several marriages catalyzing fomented and start and kids and economic security and people who love each other at work and the notion that at the beginning they all had their lawyers get together and decide to go have coffees just a little unrealistic young people when a share intense experiences in close proximity are going to have sex. And I think that there's a difference in the differences that once you get to a certain executive level there's an there's some outstanding benefits about being an executive at a place like Google Ama tens of millions of dollars be people. Laugh your stupid fucking jokes all the time. See you get restaurant. Reservations and mediocre restaurants restaurants in San Jose E. You get to come on and speak to interesting people like Cara Swisher. What else you got to do you get to have your fly up and fucking locked boss? There's just no when you reach a certain and level in a company full stop you take your sex and your personal relationships off campus. So I I think we need to calibrate. I think there's a difference between young people. Who are we're trying to find mates who don't cambering accompanied down who aren't in a position to leverage crazy power to abuse other people once you get to a certain level and you? I think we're GONNA need it once he hit VP. We don't want to hear from you that you take this shit. I'll see you WANNA thinks it's interesting. Is I think the tonality of not dealing Ling with serious allegations of sexual harassment and the way it was done at the company and I think you know you're right. The companies are messy and lots of things are messy by. Mating is mostly Yes yes but the but there is A. I think it was led to an idea within the company of not seriousness. When this was going on with the with the chief legal officer you know one of the founders top executives and so there is a difference in the behaviors but it just marshes all onto a thing when in these exact when it seems like there's a lack of and it did bleed down into other parts? Which is why you led to the Google walkout? Because it did there wasn't a rigorous idea you behind it or discussion of it because they couldn't talk about it you know because some again some things were fine some things that were not fine and it just was it was it was they. They didn't and create clarity and I think that was it and then when serious allegations came they were covered up or pushed away or people didn't think you could say something or you know the same thing that happened at Uber. The this book by Susan Fowler's coming out you know this this guy who was the high performer tolerated more. That kind of stuff. Some like words words the way people talk to each other anyway it just creates it creates a messy situation at the at the very end there were not just one.

Uber: 3,000 sexual assaults reported in U.S. rides in 2018

"We're NBC. News exclusive tonight on ridesharing giant Uber. After years of being dogged by safety concerns and sexual assault assault allegations against some of the drivers. The company is going public here tonight with what it calls a comprehensive report addressing those concerns in vowing new action. Here's Stephanie Uber. Up ended how we get from point A. TO POINT B. But as the rideshare company has grown so to have accounts slaked this. I was basically taken for two and a half hours in an uber. Car with the next day had defensive wounds I told my mom and my sister and they were just like no that sexual assault tonight. For the first time UBER is publicly releasing its own data on sexual assaults over the course of twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen. The company received nearly six thousand reports of incidents during or after Uber Rides ranging from groping to rape roughly four reported rapes every every week one in every five million rides. That's a hard number but I'm not surprised and I'm not surprised because sexual. Violence is just much more pervasive in in society than I think most people realize Tony. West is Uber's chief legal officer spearheading. This study released today together with input from sexual violence. Land's advocate I was surprised to read that about half of the victims are riders and the other half are driver right and so this is not just a one sided problem. We have to keep in mind that both drivers and riders victims according to the study. Uber's aware of law enforcement involvement in thirty seven percent of the reported reported rape cases. That number seems Kinda low to me just thirty seven percent. I'll tell you one of the facts about sexual assault is that it is a very underreported. Offense Uber shouldn't make that choice for survivors survivors should make that choice for themselves. It also opens up the possibility that Uber is aware of someone someone who potentially raped someone else. WHO's out in the public without involving law enforcement as someone who is a former law enforcement official chill? I understand the tension. We have lots of information about an incident that we will share with law enforcement if we get the consent of the victim Uber Study reveals that more than forty thousand drivers were banned in the US and the last two years as part of continuous background checks for a variety of reasons including sexual misconduct. Conduct Uber announcing tonight. They plan to share those names with other rideshare companies. What do you hope to show what these numbers over the years? We hope to see see and hope to learn a number of things I think i. We want to raise awareness. Other thing we want to show is that we're developing best practices among new safety features. Uber is adding the ability to text nine. One one from the APP unique pin codes for rides and on trip reporting were there ever any internal conversations stations where people said. This could hurt our business. These numbers sure sure there were. It was hard but it's important for us to push through do that. Discomfort and to talk about these issues and Uber couldn't simply ignore what was happening on its platform and most importantly we have to address it Stephanie. I know this study addresses issues beyond the sexual assault safety. What else look at the world fatalities as well Lester? They found one hundred seven deaths because of crashes over this two year period according to their own comparison. They also tell us that they're going to do a study. Just like this every two years to compare the

How Young Is Too Young to Face Arrest?

"Criminals come in in all shapes and sizes though it may strain definition that we can count a six-year-old throwing a temper tantrum in an elementary school among them yet welcome to America in late. September two thousand nineteen a Florida cop arrested to grade schoolers slapped a pair of handcuffs on at least one of them and sent them off to be booked fingerprinted and have their mugshots taken taken both children again six year olds who misbehaved at school were charged with misdemeanor battery a bad day for Harried police officer well yeah maybe a bad day for schools and the juvenile justice system absolutely we spoke with Marsha Levick the chief legal officer for the Juvenile Law all center which bills itself as the country's first nonprofit public interest law firm for children she said does it get more ridiculous. It's absurd. It's it's a ridiculous abusive law enforcement power authority but it's also really unnecessary but all too common abdication on the part of schools and school districts teachers just defer their management of school misconduct to police the pure legality of charging a juvenile as young as six with crime varies across the United States to be clear a juvenile in forty five states plus the district of Columbia is anyone younger than seventeen in Georgia Michigan Missouri Texas and Wisconsin. It's anyone anyone younger than sixteen juvenile offender normally doesn't move through the criminal courts but through the juvenile justice system which has guided according to the office of Juvenile Justice some delinquency prevention quote by the concept of rehabilitation through individualized justice for more serious offenses though juveniles may be tried in criminal court wear if found guilty the court focuses on punishment not rehab of fifty one jurisdictions. That's the fifty states plus the District of Columbia thirty. The three have no lower level limit on holding a young person criminally accountable that excess that includes Florida in effect that means that an overzealous cop legally Wrigley can arrest even an unruly two year old of those eighteen other jurisdictions most put the lower level that a kid can be charged with a crime at ten years years old in those locations six-year-old like the two in Florida simply could not be arrested or charged with a crime levick said obviously it begs eggs the question how can that be. How can we possibly have created juvenile court system that allows for the possibility that six and seven year olds can be arrested. I think they never envisioned and six or seven year old would be hauled into court. I think that's a fair assumption. That's not who designed the system for so what happened in Florida a police Lisa Officer with Orlando's reserve unit arrested the two six year olds on separate misdemeanor battery charges on September nineteenth of two thousand nineteen one was a girl who lashed out in a Tantrum Trim that was brought on by a sleep disorder. The girl's family told The New York Times on Monday September twenty third the Orlando Police Department fired the officer who made the arrests for not following in protocol that required he'd get approval from his supervisor to arrest any minor younger than age twelve. No charges were filed against the two children. Cops in schools rules of course are not new. Florida is one of many states that has bumped up. Its police presence in schools over the years. The Florida legislature mandated it after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman when Douglas high school in Parkland claimed seventeen lives in February of two thousand eighteen the buildup of police in schools understandable in some ways. It's been more in twenty years since two students killed thirteen people and injured twenty one others at Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado since columbine up until April of this year America it has been through two hundred and thirty eight other school shootings according to a year long investigation by the Washington Post this increased show of force though does come with problems plums for one as the Orlando Sentinel points out citing report by the Education Week Resource Center black students are arrested at school at disproportionately high hi rate at least one of the children arrested in Orlando was black and as the recent news out of Orlando Shows Police School kids even elementary school kids just sometimes sometimes don't mix levick said we know where this is coming from. This fear of what happens when a child acts out in school. There's going to be some catastrophic consequence I am I need from Columbine for twenty years. We've been overreacting. I'm not aiming to trivialize schools being so quick. Call Law enforcement there obviously many situations nations in which that's appropriate but this is one that defies common sense most would agree that slapping cuffs on first graders probably is crossing the line zero-tolerance. Your tolerance certainly has its costs eleven said initially the thought was that there would be some rationality some reasonableness injected into the school environment would curb those extreme and absurd responses but it may be that trusting in waiting for commonsense to kick in isn't going to work it may be that it does require a legislative response. It's some movements across the nation aim to raise the minimum age that a child can be charged with a crime to twelve years old in some of those thirty three jurisdictions actions where no minimum ages set their calls to set something until then though school police officers may have to lean on something much less complicated than legislative action should when faced with a prepubescent troublemaker a deep breath. Maybe a countdown from ten and a little common sense.

An authority that address is modern day use of technology. And that enables, the ability to collect an analyze metadata Pfizer. Pfizer is a statute that is specifically intended for the domestic collection of foreign intelligence. That's purpose and specifically authorizes the targeting of US persons because US persons can engage in terrorist acts against the homeland, they can engage in espionage and act as foreign agents for, for hostile governments. And so the notion, I think it's important to dispel that myth a little bit about the role of FIFA and the potential that we can have members of our own citizenry that want to do harm to our national security whether whether that's solution lies in expanding seventy-two with authorities. Versus modifying, or even replacing CDR with something that more properly fits modern-day communication techniques. I would think is an important aspect for the board to explore.

Brexit vote: UK Parliament rejects leaving EU without a deal

"Prime Minister Theresa may was defeated in parliament yesterday. After trying for second time to get him Ps to approve a plan to leave the European Union VR to the right two hundred forty two the nose to the left three hundred ninety one. Ojos prime minister expressed disappointment at the deadlock voting against leaving without a deal and for an extension to not solve the problems. We face. Nearly a quarter of the members of her own party voted against her deal alongside opposition parties. Some politicians want to harder Brexit with the UK fully out of European institutions such as the single market and the customs union, the fate of the vote was sealed when the chief legal officer to the government. Geoffrey Cox indicated that the UK could have difficulties leaving the temporary backstop arrangement put in place to avoid a heart booed with island. Risk as I said in my letter of the thirteenth of November remains on changed. Many feel MRs may hasn't provided a good enough ons to the issue of how to do with the UK's border between the Republican island, which is in the EU a northern island, which is part of the UK and would leave the EU if Brexit went ahead this morning. The government sought to defuse panic about the prospect of a new deal Brexit by declaring it would temporarily suspend tariffs on many traded goods if that came about but the outlook remains turbulent leader. Jeremy Corbyn way out of the past the prime minister's run down the clock on the caucus Ren run out on her. Maybe it's time. Instead, we had a general election in the people. Should bait. See what happens next on the choppy road to Brexit. I'm what does it mean for the leadership of an embattled MRs may? Well, I think it was expected that you might lose again. But it was not expected that you would lose by another three margin in this case one hundred and forty-nine aids joining us to help make sense of all the latest twists and turns and has Kalman's is Joan Pete are Brexit editor through the biggest feats anybody government history is quite a bad performance for Theresa May. And that's to eighteen succession that she hasn't been able to get through on her deal. What does it mean for the Brexit process? And what happens now? Well, at least in theory Brexit space to happen in in two weeks time, but as the prime minister said after yesterday's defeat today parliament will vote on whether men B's want to leave the EU with no deal, and they're expected to say, no, they do not want to leave with new deal and tomorrow, they're going to vote on whether since they don't want to leave with deal, and they failed pass the deal the British government should ask for an extension of the timetable beyond March twenty nine, but new Brexit would also be very disruptive for the EU. And it's a Britain takes that post ability off the table trees as Isla is saying that drastically damages her negotiating power in. What is clearly very sticky end game with the EU. Yes. I mean, the argument about new deal is going on more or less than prices began. When Theresa May herself famously said new deal is better than a bad deal. I think the problem with that was that new deal has always look very damaging for the UK and potentially damaging all safer, the European Union securely for for our land on the the the problem that has led to is it nobody on either side really has taken seriously the risk that they would be a new DO Brexit. So it hasn't really worked as a bargaining tactic. I mean, many NPR said you have to be willing to walk away from the table. If you're gonna get a good deal out of the European Union. But actually, the EU never took the seriously as threat, and I think the fact that envy's are about debate not to leave. They deal demonstrates their right? Not to take seriously the threat it could still happen by accident. But nobody actually wants to leave with no deal. Well, let's look at another way in which pain is extended that is this idea of extending the negotiating period to enable the government to carry on having this tussles with the EU without a deal yet in place, assuming this motion passes, and it comes before the house of comes on Thursday. How easy is that to achieve? The signs from the you are that they don't want to be too big to be responsible for a crash out Brexit, so in a sense once orig- government puts requests for an extension. The us is always done to grunt, but they will be quite they will do. So with some reluctance, and I think they will say we don't want it to be a long extension. We want to know what is to be used for we want some assurance from you that you have some plan for rectifying some form of Brexit deal. But at the end of the day, I do think when they meet next week. They will say yes, you can have maybe two months, maybe three months. There is going to be some discussion about whether actually should make the extension a lot longer. But I think it's much easier to do it. At least this stage on the base of any two or three months and way, does this leave British politics and the fragmentation it was seeing a lot of longstanding political groupings as a small third force. That's. Emerged in parliament pro e u discontent with the existing leaderships. Do you think this is a sign that something is changing in our politics? Politics is certainly in considerable turmoil. I mean, the traditional sort of British stability has been built Burr run, the two main parties labor in the conservatives who actually increase that share the vision, the twenty seventeen election, but the Brexit is sort of cost across that stability because the bigger divide now is between those sport remain in those support leave and both main parties a completely divided split from top to bottom on this issue. New the new grouping, the independent group is also a very strong remain or ended group, and I think almost anything could happen in British politics within either party over the next year.

Let's be clear if Mary Barra CEO of General Motors had tweeted something about production in twenty nineteen. She probably or maybe not she. But certainly the -versities tweeting as very the legal department of General Motors would get a phone call from the SEC. Hey by. The way don't, but as you said because of must history because and especially because of the settlement agreement last year. That's right. And the in some ways when you're just looking at the stock it's a little. I'm surprised maybe I shouldn't be you. Tell me if you're surprised I'm a little surprised that this is a stock that over the last two years has traded in a relatively tight range. This is stock that has basically been in the range of two hundred fifty dollars a share to three hundred fifty share up in doubt, it's visited many places in between those two points, but pretty quickly. But for the last two years, it's really been in that range. It would be amazing to go back to early twenty seventeen twenty seventeen Chris. Hey, Chris, by the way, not much is going to happen with tesla over the next two years stock the stock or. Yeah. I mean, you would. It is amazing that it has not moved that much. Now it moves so quickly under so many, you know, it has huge expectations built into the stock price now and maybe those expectations. Haven't haven't changed that much based on Ilan mosquee, they're speaking or not speaking on Twitter, but I can't think of another company that is more dependent upon it's CEO or seemingly more dependent upon it CEO than tesla is with Alon mosque, particularly since no other executive seems to stay there. Very long. Right. I think the last time we were talking about tesla. It was because the chief legal officer had left after just two months. Yeah. And I wanna go back to something you said regarding musk and his importance to this business and therefore to the stock because I don't think anyone really thinks that the. Board of directors is going to show him the door. I don't I don't think anyone thinks that's going to happen. Now that said do you think in three years two to three years he still CEO because I don't see the board showing him the door. But I could see him at some point saying, you know, what I don't need this. I got other things I'm interested in and I'm gonna go run my space. It's not going to be up to the board. I think you're exactly right. It will either be up to the SEC or it will be up to Alon musk and both of those. I mean, I think it's unfortunate to say are going to be based on how he chooses to comport himself. In the meantime. It's going to be one to watch

Offering a key step that keeps the ride hailing firm on pace to hit the public market early next year lifts planned IPO is one of the most anticipated Silicon Valley debuts in recent years the filing which was expected which suggest lift remains a step ahead of rival Uber as both work toward IPO's in twenty nineteen. And according to the latest report in the journal lift is aiming to debut in March or April of next year coming up booking a hotel. Why not try parasailing while you're at it? Travel websites are pushing experience now it's a thing. How airbnb? Expedia looked to make your online travel booking a little easier. More and more booking and hotel companies are trying to sell travelers more online than just a place to stay these web based firms. Also want customers to purchase experiences like sailing, excursions food tours and even aquarium adventures the growing trend seems to be working for all parties involved. Let's talk more about it. With the Wall Street Journal's I shall Muslim who joins us in the podcast studio. Welcome. Thank you. I remember hitting upon this for the podcast when I think it was Airbnb that I started to roll out their experiences seems like the concepts made some traction since then. Yeah. More and more people are turning to online travel companies like expedient provider even Airbnb to book their experiences. I mean, they're looking for unique things to do when they're out of town instead of going to a travel agent they're turning to online like many people have in their phones to find things out. Fun things to do. And the good news for, you know, these big hotel entities is that there's a big pot to dip into right? There's huge potential for money. They could stand to benefit from some extra revenue here as well. Right. I mean, all of these companies are in the travel industry, and they just trying to get a biggest share. I mean at some point you have to figure out like how you can make more money, and that's really what they're doing. So there joining this experiences industry as to make sure that they can make more money in, you know, give back to shareholders really how good are things going are traditional travel agents concern, just yet about this rising digital competition. So whatever untold is that travel agents are really concerned that much obviously they've been affected into pass. But they they feel that they're really more travel advisers now than agents, so they're not just booking and selling you a trip or something to do. But they're really catering to you personally. Is the an experience really driving your tin. So they're trying to offer those services a so way to stand out from OT as that may just give you a listing, but not necessarily put an Tinder together for you. You see the adoption of it clearly more people are utilizing it more entities are utilizing as service. I guess the big selling point though is the ease of use. Right. It's convenient, you know, having everything right on our smartphone. It seems like why wouldn't it all work together? Why wouldn't you just have, you know, book something and then book and experience and have it all in one sort of compartment? I think that's probably what's driven people to this. Right. I mean, that's part of what the these companies that are involved in the top of bookings are trying to do people already book, you know, our place to stay with them. Right. So if they book place to stay, and perhaps they book fly, and perhaps a book a car. Well, they want to find things to do. Right. They want to become essentially a one stop shop for most customers. And so I mean right now. About eighty percent of those type of experiences are offline so they're very small, mama. Pop medium kind of companies that are offering these experiences. So these are online travel agencies and hotels a hoping that they can provide that service directly through online and at the same time have all these experiences listed so that people can book everything through them. And then that way, they get more of a person's a spending dollars right for someone who is maybe trying to get a feel of how this might work and their options out there. Where's a good place to start? What kinds of companies have a good footing with this where it's a little user friendly. If someone's looking to book and experience while they travel what's out there. So I mean, I I love the companies are really moving into this. I mean Expedia has been around and has been doing it for awhile typifies has been doing the same. But now they're offering a way for people to book more directly through them. Also, you have eater dot com. That's another big. One and then booking dot com is known for like booking hotels. But now you can book experiences through them too. And they're expanding more worldwide. So some of those are some of the big like online travel agencies that are really moving into space, obviously hotels, always provided some type of service of experiences usually you had to go to your front desk or something when now you can do it online. You can book dose experience in some cases, like even with Marya. You don't even have to be staying at one of the hotels will be able to book an experience. Right. These are all good things to know. Especially now is a holiday season approaches. People are going to be doing their vacation things. So good to get a little bit more organized with maybe I should think so much. Thank you for your time for more details. Head to wsJcom we can find more podcast like this one including our latest from personal Tacoma. Stated Pierce instant message. There is a brand new episode out Friday. That's it for the tech news briefing reporting from the newsroom in New York. I'm telling you Bruce does thanks for listening.

Crypto rout drags bitcoin toward 14-month low

"A turnaround. He discussed his confidence with Bloomberg's Stephen Engle. Take a listen. Economies work where if there's enough miners going out of business that equilibrium is near. And would you look at how markets overshoot both up and down. You can probably say close to the bottom. So where do you see prices in the short term going? So it's very difficult to tell. Initially. I thought towards the end of the year they were always a run up. You could see that last year. See that. A year ago from a lot of people predicted that it would go back again later this year starting from November and December obviously November came in passing. And it was one of the worst months for bitcoin and December right now, there's nothing new. There's no catalysts that will potentially shoot it up. So I will look at it kind of flat. And then started from new year. That's when I think with a new sentiment and momentum. Okay. What is going to be though, the catalyst in two thousand nineteen because in twenty eighteen you had a number of high profile hacks here in Japan, especially coin check in earlier this year. You had a exposed Ponzi scheme a number of different issues and potentially new regulation coming down the pike. One thing in Japan is the Japanese regulators are starting to open up again. So they're starting to approve new exchanges. They're also going to approve new listing. All of these things will start from the new year. Now would also the FSA recently gave oversight. And regulatory oversight to the operators themselves. Yes. How is that going to change? Yeah. So almost every exchange. Registered in licensed in Japan received an improvement order from governance compliance security customer assets secretary's day, these are all to protect the end retail consumer and all of the exchanges are almost complete with their improvement order. So starting new era is going to be a new beginning. How does it really work with the FAA giving you more regulatory oversight? Does that kind of close the door a new entrance though? Yes. And no. So I. A lot of the exchanges. The people who start for the garage or a startup. That's very difficult to do. Now. New entrance is extremely difficult at the same time you need to keep up with what's happening. Global and innovation is key. Especially in this industry is started from cryptocurrencies it went to ICAO's. And now it's going to security token offerings like STO's all of these things. Innovation is an evolution died. You need to continue on and you need to have that. Right. Balance isn't the Versi as well. Looking at regulation on security, tokens, exactly. So the FCC Japan was the first global economic powerhouse to regulate cryptocurrency. Now, they're looking into security token offerings, and they will probably be the first nation to specifically look at security token offerings and put legislation in particular trends, are you looking at from your clients and your customers on your exchange liquid. Are you seeing more increase in institutional participation or retail, and what side shot to that question would be the implementation of high frequency trading? What impact is that having so liquid? We're open to casual traders too, sophisticated institutional investors as well, but our sweet spot are these professional traders, and these are all high frequency traders as in any any financial product from equities fixed income. The global trend is to accommodate these high frequency traders. And obviously we provide full API's for that. So our main customer base are these professional traders and November was our biggest month in our history. In terms of transaction volume in bitcoin and also US dollars does bitcoin of a chance of getting back to the record levels nineteen thousand five hundred and change. I think you will surprise surpass it by at least. Well, that's very difficult. But I would say by end of next year. I think it will surpass the all time high.
