"We know how this virus behaves in human beings, which we didn't back in early March, and we also now have great therapeutics and vaccines literally right around the corner Within the space of a couple of weeks here, we're going to start vaccinations. So our lockdown lockdown are no longer the pressing kind of issue. That they were back in the early spring. Hey, what are we gonna do here in New York City? Monica Crowley. You know, I think like 500,000 people have left when we get to next year. We're not gonna have enough tax revenue. What do you think federal bailout of some kind? Well, you know, the Democratic governors and mayors off these blue cities and states have been begging the federal government for bill out, and it's not just because of covert related expenses that have been ah, huge draw down on these thieves, state and local budgets. By the way in the original care, sacked mark, we had $150 billion in there. For state and local governments for covert related expenses. Democrats in Congress came back and wanted a trillion more to bail out all these states, their pension plans and everything else Non Co vered related, and president Trump said. Absolutely not. We're not going to be in the business of doing that. If you physically mismanaged yourselves for decades, we're not gonna Bill Yeah, we're not gonna have taxpayers and Arkansas and Oklahoma bailout New York state Because Governor Cuomo and his predecessor screwed up the state. That is absolutely the correct policy prescription for that, But you are correct that was high taxes and lockdown and an unbelievable regulations. People are leaving blue cities and blue states in droves. And that means that the large part of the tax base is going with them. I just hope that they don't take their politics into red states and continue to vote for for the disaster that they just fled. Well, that's a good point, and it should be pointed out any time is a bailout. Even what they're talking about now, Annie Bail out any stimulus bill. That's the problem because you're talking about Congress, men and women, and they've all got somebody need to do a favor for somebody's got to be included on. That's the problem, right? They pad the bill with all kinds of pork in there. So what we did, but that's been the problem since time immemorial that did not start with this Congress. Although it continues with this Congress. Sure, you know your elected to office, You're elected to delivery for your constituents, and you know it's easy to spend money. That's not yours. Right. It's easy to spend other people's money. But this is why you get massive deficits. And yet you get into two big holes. And, of course, once you start programs, very difficulty. Oh, take them back as President Nixon used to say so, we you know where President Trump has tried valiantly over the last four years to rein in certain parts of the government and make it Um it make it easier to fire people in the federal government who are not performing and things he is really tried, and he's done a good job. But when it came to the coup vid War. He said. Look, we're in a war. We've got to spend whatever it will take tea. Be victorious in this war, and we've seen the operation. Warp speed with viral with the vaccine for the virus is Which has been extraordinary. He's taken a whole private sector approach to the presidency for the last four years and has done an incredible job. I could tell you mark being in the federal government trying to move the federal government on anything is like trying to move a warship in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It takes a long time and a lot of effort. This president came in with a private sector approach and was able to respond to this crisis in the whole area in in a whole bunch of areas in record time. That is a huge accomplishment in the Corona virus. We're at the end. Now The vaccine is coming with the beginning of the end, and Monica Crowley great work.

"This is all of it on WNYC. I'm Alison Stewart New Yorkers sometimes we like to think of our city of the only one in the world, if not the only one that the best one sometimes the worst one either way New York likes to see itself, as an exception. But a new book shows how much the world cities really we all have in common not just with each other. But also with our ancient predecessors Monica l Smith is an archaeologist and professor anthropology at UCLA. And now, the author of cities the first six thousand years, the book shows how much we can learn about today's society's from considering where they all came from right now more than half, the world's population lives in cities and just over a decade. Smith writes, quote, more than fifty percent of African sixty percent of Chinese eighty seven percent of Americans and ninety two percent of the residents of the UK will live in cities Monica. Welcome to all of it. Thanks very much. It's a pleasure to be here. So the question you posed to us the reader is right. The question I would pose to you as a reader. Is why cities are the natural step in human habitations evolution or a response to something else? So the way we can think about cities is not just the way that they encompass practically half of the world's population now, but where the came from in the first place because cities are not the natural. Habitat of our species are natural habitat is living in small villages of fifty to one hundred people. And that's the way our ancestors had lived for one hundred thousand years or more. And yet there was something about those villages that just wasn't quite enough to galvanize people into larger groups at it wasn't enough to satisfy people when they wanted something different. It's interesting you should say we are wired to be in small villages because you know, in any big city like this one we break ourselves down into areas Greenwich Village Chelsea Upper West side, upper east side, we break ourselves down into villages. Is that historically has that been the case with these big cities. Yes, absolutely. I mean, you can think of even your own apartment building as a little bit like the size of a village. And even in archaeological terms people break down their cities into smaller more manageable units. I have a colleague of stone who works on methamphetamine cities. And she's noted that the neighborhoods in Mesopotamia and cities are about the same size as a message tame village. And so this kind of cellular idea of living in a smaller zone within a larger urban settlement is something that has been with us right from the very beginning. We should probably define our terms. When you say city, what do you mean in the modern context, and what you mean, the ancient context? So the scale of cities is quite different in the modern in the ancient period. Of course, if we think about places like Mexico City is twenty one million or Tokyo is about thirty nine million people that's clearly much larger than any ancient city would've been, but the definition of a city as a place is the same for both those urban beginnings of five to ten thousand people as they are for the mega. Cities of today, and that is a concentrated population in a small area people who have specialized occupations, not just farmers and herders, but a whole variety of middle management jobs and production jobs, and even jobs doing things like transportation and carrying things around and you have different kinds of buildings. We have spatial structures in modern cities that are very much like ancient cities. You have a downtown where you have concentrated architecture, maybe some special purpose administrative buildings. You have roads or canals bridges tidal together. And then you've got big empty spaces that can be repurpose over and over again for a fair or a festival or maybe even for a demonstration a parade. Or even riot. I'm interested in a couple of follow ups. One. Can you make what is the distinction between a mega city a city in terms of modern context? Sure. So many of the cities that we have today are growing into these. Larger urban conglomerations. So we think about the New York Boston corridor, for example. Or if we think about cities in around Beijing, or we think about cities in northern India that are all sort of growing into one another that again is a question of scale that is bigger than ancient times. But is still quite similar if we think about ancient Mesopotamia cities, for example, they were all within an easy day's sale of each other up and down the Tigers in the U Fridays or Roman cities that were packed all around the Mediterranean, and you had the same kinds of things in every single city. Whether it was in downtown Rome itself or in North Africa or in Turkey or anywhere else. Have these large? I mean, the populations of some of these mega cities that we have. Now have they altered the idea of a city not for the people who live in cities are still the places where people want to come because there is an opportunity for employment. There's an opportunity for education. There's even an opportunity for entertainment that doesn't exist in smaller places. Think about where the big museums are think about where the big sports stadiums are and the sports franchises. They're all in cities. It was also interesting to hear you described. So the characteristic of city there's a municipal area there's area for large gatherings. There's an area for housing. The question. I guess I'm trying to get to did people create that or to have people adapted to that. Both of those things are true. When cities I started their precursors were only blueprinting by the fact that people had occasionally come into ritual settlements beforehand in all of those little villages. There was only one way that people could get together into larger groups that was ritual spaces spaces like Beckley Teppei in Turkey or a place that might be more familiar to us like Stonehenge, and the idea was that you came together with a number of strangers you had to learn to get along. There was a fair or a festival or ritual occasion. But the difference was that after the festival is over. You were supposed to go home. There was no way to make that a kind of permanent festival atmosphere until people started living in cities. And so it I city might be just a collection of houses traders that had stayed on a little bit longer people who were hanging around. They put up a shock, and then somebody else put up a shock, and then after a couple of years, it was recognized that nobody was going anywhere. So more people came more work started to be available some of those shocks torn down, and then remade into somewhat better housing, and we can actually see this in the archaeological record this process of beginnings that then become transformed into a permanent festival atmosphere. My guess is professor Monica Smith and him for his cities the first six thousand years. So take me back six thousand years. What's the for city? So there are many claimants of for the first city. Archaeologists are just like any other scientists they want the biggest the first earliest. But there are at least a couple of candidates in. Petya of one of them is Iraq in southern mashed potato what's now, southern Iraq. And then a site called tell Brak which is now in Syria, and they're the two poles of a long chain of urbanism that started up and down the Tigris in the frady's. They were places that were a little bit difficult to live in which actually means that the beginning of urbanism is slightly puzzling. The places that people lived in the first cities were challenging they were hot as they were often suffering drought. They were places where people had to bring in a lot of resources. They were not easy places to live. And actually, maybe that's why they became successful. Because people had to be more entrepreneurial in order to make it work at all. So the first cities you've mentioned the Tigers river, did they have to be sneer some sort of natural source of food energy anything like that. Yes. Absolutely. Because cities always draw on their surrounding Rio. Sources people are not keeping goats in the city. People are not keeping a year supply of grain in the city. And so the way that they get provisions and the way that we get provision now is through a network of transportation that often would go along water bodies, like lakes or rivers or oceans. And so we also make use of those same shipping technologies. It's still easier and cheaper to ship things by water than it is over land. What happened in cities that failed? What causes historically caused the city to fail? So we know that there are some cities that are now purely archaeological, including places like tell Brak they were places that were very successful for hundreds of years. And then afterwards, the populations either dissipated slowly or there was some kind of catastrophic event, but catastrophic events are actually relatively rare most often it's because there are slight changes over time. That mean? And that within a few generations city just isn't as popular as the other cities in the networks. There's rarely a case where an entire network of urbanism goes down. It's usually one or two people then moved to some other urban locale much as they do today. And then they pick up the threads as migrants and insert themselves into a new urban center. What's been the role of leadership historically in city success or failure? Leadership is critical because there are many things that happened in cities that can only be done at a centralized level. And one of the most important is infrastructure. Nobody builds their own street, nobody digs their own canal to their house. Nobody lose their own sewer line. Those are things that all have to be done at a centralized locale and with an odd towards Lincoln people together through this shared infrastructure. So when we think about the role of governments both in the past in the present, we have some wonderful examples from ancient historical documents that talk about how leaders are making canals how they build roads and bridges the exact same kinds of things that we see today with historical or commemorative markers foundation stones or brass plaques. Those are things that we also see in the archaeological record leaders liked claim their development of infrastructure. My guess is professor Monica Smith and him for his cities the first six. Thousand years you name four building blocks that were essential precursors for development of cities. When are they? So one of them is language, and that's something that our species has had for at least the last hundred thousand years or so and language is an important part of what eventually made urbanism possible because language does not just describe what actually happens. It also describes what could happen. We can imagine thanks through language. We can say if we build this structure than we will have more people living here if we build this metro extension. We'll be able to provide jobs to more people if we construct something new then we can make something new happen. So that's one of the important building blocks another building block is that our species has always been migratory. And most cities still grow by populations coming in you know, that kids are expensive, especially in cities, so city birth rates tend to be relatively low compared to the countryside, and all of our cities are growing all. All over the world. Because people migrate in another thing is the way in which humans. Love objects and objects turn into trash we can see that happening every ancient city. So that trash is not a modern phenomenon it's an urban one. And finally, we have architecture the times that people I started to build something like a Stonehenge, for example turned into times where people were constantly changing their built environments by building themselves residences and special purpose architecture in cities. It was so interesting to hear you describe building things. And of course, my brain went straight to if they build it if we build it, they will come. So that the line from a movie, very famous hackneyed line. But it sounds like it's true. That's exactly true about Hudson yards. For example..

"What Amazon would have done. They would have gone into New York. They were gone there. And they would not talk to anybody, and they would have just done it and they wouldn't have cared. So the fact that they are now hearing an interacting and some people are going to hate this. But it speaks to day two at Amazon. Oh, oh my God. Hey, welcome to geekwire. I'm Bigler editor Todd Bishop editor Monica, Nicole sprig, and I'm John Cook co-founder of geekwire. Alright. So some big news to talk about today. Amazon in a stunning reversal announced that it will not be building half of HQ two in New York City after facing opposition from the community there certain elements of the political leadership did not want Amazon to go to New York City. Monica you've been covering this. What does it mean this story man, I've I've been doing this for more than a year, and every time something breaks, it's more wild than the thing before it. I I don't know. What's gonna be next? They're going to build it on the moon or something. Yes. So Amazon pulled out of its New York plans. This was going to be at twenty five thousand to forty thousand person office in queens, and in New York, Amazon has been facing a lot of opposition very vocal opposition from elected officials and labor leaders and. Some community activists that they just didn't want to contend with anymore, especially when compared to northern Virginia where they've been welcomed, very warmly. So Monica you went to northern Virginia and to queens right before the Q to announcement. We sent you there and got you there before him. Could you tell a difference in the mood and style of northern Virginia versus New York just on your observations when you were there. Absolutely. Yes. When I was in northern Virginia. I mean, it's really Washington DC. It's right across the Potomac and the reception was either ambivalent or excited. Most people I talked to you had kind of heard of it. They thought it would be good to bring those jobs. They didn't have very strong opinions. And then the folks in public policy elected officials and economic development folks were very bullish about Amazon, they were stoked about it in New York. The second I arrived. I stepped into a massive protest that had been organized by state Senator Michael generous who will probably talk about later as a very key figure here. And people from queens were out there expressing a lot of concern. A lot of frustration. There was already some anti Amazon graffiti on the ground, which is something that we've come to see a lot here in Seattle, Amazon's first home. But yes, there was a a noticeable difference between the two locations that now seems very ominous of things to come. Shoe in that way, though. Would you have expected this? There was a report I in I believe the Washington Post and the New York Times signalling this. I'm getting those two right? I believe so absent that would you have expected Amazon to not go forward with the plans in such dramatic fashion. I mean, this it seems like it's out of nowhere. Yes. And no, I mean, this is it did come as a shock today. Certainly even after those reports there was a lot of speculation that Amazon was just floating this idea that it might pull out of New York because it wanted to add some pressure to the officials who are fighting it. But it reminded me of something that happened in Seattle. That was actually when you think about it as a pattern. It's very in character for Amazon. So last summer, we spent a lot of time covering the head tax in Seattle, which is going to be a tax on businesses to fund affordable housing, and a lot of people actually just called it the Amazon tax Amazon as you might expect was. Up in arms about this. And we started to hear some rumblings that they might actually slow their growth down in Seattle in response to this proposed tax now on the one hand that felt like something that of course, Amazon would say because they want to add pressure to the political situation..

A motorist navigating the alleyways co and lanes of central London can expect to tear along at it invigorating, average speed of seven point, four miles per hour given polls by yet.

In response, they drew up an infrastructure plan Soviet in its proportions. The London ring ways network was a system of four concentric motorway, ring roads. They were to encircle the capital at varying distances from the city centre. The aim was to speed up traffic circulation and ease congestion. In spite of opposition from academics, the treasury and the department of transport the Greater London council or the g. l. c. pushed ahead with the plans construction of the innermost road called Ringway. One began in nineteen sixty four. Constructing the motorway caused massive and immediate disruption to the residential areas that lay in its path.
