Bond Voyage

"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason

She intended to slip out unseen and meet her husband outside the shelby center but was intercepted by police outside. The building bishop was then arrested and taken into custody. The shooting critically wounded six of bishops colleagues. Killing three it was a senseless as it was ruthless and many wondered what prompted the usually reserved scientists to turn violent. It didn't take investigators long to uncover a vital clue according to the new yorker a police chief from the boston suburb of braintree. Where bishop had grown up called huntsville's sheriff's department the morning after the shooting. His warning was grave. The woman you have in custody. I thought you'd wanna know. She shot and killed her brother back in. Nineteen eighty six according to amy's mother. Judy bishop when amy was twenty one. She accidentally shot her younger brother. Seth as judy told.

Even physically assaulting a stranger pancake restaurant whose family was seated before hers bishop was also known to dismiss graduate students in her lab that she was supposed to be advising some acquaintances believed she was growing arrogant and resentful this increasingly erratic behavior coupled with reports that bishop had grown bitter and isolated after being denied tenure led investigators to believe the shooting was a demonstration of retaliation and anchor as bishop awaited trial in prison.

How the Virtual Office Could Replace the Physical One

"It's another monday in the world of remote work depending on. When you're listening to this you might be going up for another day of sitting in front of your computer in your zoom sweater. Trying to get stuff done by video conference. We're of course familiar with the challenges of remote work already. Big recalls can be awkward and inefficient in. Its part to replace the serendipity of running into someone in the break room but lately some new services have been trying to solve those issues with virtual office. Spaces are columnist. Christopher mims visited one himself and he joins me now to talk about what he saw. Hey christopher thanks for being here. Thank you for having me. So you've visited the virtual offices of id corporate. They were using space through a service called gather. Can you talk about what that experience like. I visited a number of corporate offices in my time so it was strange to visit of virtual office reminded me of real world ones. Which are you know. Kind of whimsical lake airbnb. They have all their conference rooms. Which are modeled after various apartments on airbnb so being in a virtual office where there were desks and conference rooms and you know stage for people to give talks and a cafeteria and a bar and the office is actually in a castle and there's a beach it was really funny. How even though. I'm walking around with my avatar. I felt in some sense. Like i was there. And maybe that's you know decades of playing video games. But i also think that there is a lot to be said for the way that video games. They're designed over. Decades has been refined to really tap into innate abilities that we have so for example in our brains we have place cells which are physical analogues. It's an individual neuron lights up when you go to a place and you can see this on the brain of a rat when it's traveling through maze for example or if you talk to people who win the annual world memory championship a lot of them. What called memory palaces. You imagine a house and you walk through and you place the object. You wanna memories in the house that works so well because we have this huge section of our brain which is devoted to place and geography and navigating in three dimensional space. We just don't use it with our existing interfaces communicating remotely. So when i went into a virtual tutti office and started walking around the thing that really struck me was like oh my god. I'm using more of brain and it feels more natural so when i'm in a virtual h. A hosted on for example gather. It's very easy. I just use my arrow keys. And i'm moving in two dimensions link in legend zelda and at the same time they have incorporated sort of the minimum requirements for communicating in that space as we would in a real one and one of the spatial audio of my avatar is next somebody else's avatar. We can talk freely in these little bubbles just like we went through video chat you know if we walk away from each other the sound fades and dies complete so you can create these clusters of conversation or you can walk up to somebody in the hallway and have chat with them. That's private or you go into a room. Only people in the room can hear each other. So this allows you know based on my interviews with the people who are working in this these types of spaces this kind of more spontaneous collaboration link. We're used to in an office at the same time because you can make yourself more or less available you can turn off your camera. You can say i'm away. You're not tethered to your desk. As he would be in a physical space going to this office it just it really struck me how quickly i was able to interview a lot of people just by walking up to them and that just doesn't work with the friction of you know. Zoom call words like. Oh where's the link. Okay here logging in. I'm waiting for you to log in. is everybody here. Oh you're muted just all of that. Extra friction really gets in the way of spontaneous communication. I think and gather is one of a number of companies offering similar services. Just how widespread are these types of platforms and how are companies using them. There are a lot of companies using them. I mean one of the biggest ones which is called remo remote dot co. they're used a lot for events. They told me that they have multiple hundreds of thousands of monthly active users. Spatial chat claims similar figures. You know they have people using them. From every big chunk of money you could imagine plus boeing and a bunch of other fortune five hundred companies. Not all of which are paying members because of course they all have a freemium tier so it is. Nasa sent hundreds of thousands of monthly active users. But if you're having a few big events that could only be a few dozens or hundreds of individual companies but has impressed me that the biggest ones by just traffic are bootstrapped. And they're like look. We already making revenue. We don't need investment because we are just were able to pay our server bills from people signing up that is of course a very powerful signal that something is sticky. And it's working if you can get to revenue if you can go from nothing to a product that is making money in nine months. That's a very compelling space generally sounds like a lot of users and how all these companies using these types of platforms. It sounds like it might just be more about special events than it is about you know putting in your full nine to five from the virtual office. I think rate now. The initial use case for most companies and organizations is events because partly that allows them to dip their toe. It's low commitment. I mean if you're going to have a holiday party. In one of these people have to adapt their work style to spend a couple of hours walking around some virtual space so companies using it to work in. I think are in the minority. I've also heard interesting. Use cases lake people holding scientific meetings. And the they build out this big hall. And then everybody's standing in front of their scientific poster and anybody who's ever been to a science meeting or a medical meeting knows that that is the central ritual for disseminating new data and information also just like meeting people in your field and it's the science fair for adults but it's really important in in academia so it's been interesting that so many universities and other institutions seem to be using it for those kind of events others are using it for parties summer using it just to replace what people the old the stuff that we all used to go to in convention centers. Where you'd go to a talk but the real substance of it is having coffee or drink with somebody over chris. I can put on my cynical hat for a second. During the pandemic i feel like workers are struggling with zoom fatigue and with the sort of always on mentality that comes with being full remote. These services seem to require more presents out of employees and and that seems like a potential challenge. I think as with zoom as with slack where we were promised. This is the future. Remember where it can then once you once you're kind of forced to use like really high doses of these things you really run into their limitations and you get zoom fatigue or slack on or whatever you wanna call it. I think that the same could be true for these on the other hand. I think that there is the potential for them to be the next evolution. That makes it a little bit more. Sustainable i remote work experts. I talked to cautioned against companies saying. Oh this tool is gonna solve our problem for us at base. I think the real challenge with remote work is companies need to establish a bunch of new norms in some ways. Very different from what we are used to in an in person office where norms can be established by as moses have to be more deliberate and you know whether or not you're using a virtual each q. Being forced to everyone share what they're working on in some kind of document that can be accessed a synchronous all those little nuances of what it takes to make a really functional. Remote workforce work. That doesn't go away. The tool doesn't solve for that automatically. But maybe it makes it a little bit easier so it sounds like you think this is something that might be here to stay as we move into at least a more heavily remote workforce in the future absolutely. I also think that ultimately we're building toward kind of a more complete fusion of the internet and real life through the mediums like augmented reality in some ways. I think we're laying the tracks now for that so the more we get used to collaborating remotely through all these tools the more natural it will seem to toggle between what we're doing in the real world what we're doing on the internet via other things like our glasses are vr. Headsets are ever more mobile. Devices are risk based whatever aren't. That's our tech columnist. Christopher mims thanks so much for joining me. Thank you for having me.

Now we're gonna start like we're gonna we're gonna get surprised by google's announcement that android twelve developer in a preview or something is going to be rolling out And leading up to that you can expect that we're going to start seeing more and more hints. As far as what's going to be part of android twelve a couple of things that i noticed this week and twelve may include an app hibernation feature so this is added to pee in a commit. It said quote system service that manages app hibernation state. A state apps can enter. That means they are not being actively used and can be optimized for storage So friend of the show michelle remond from. Xda tweeted if an app in his for a single user the system at least as far as can be gleaned so far the system will clear the cash so this might be a function that if this app is is actively hibernated by the user. I don't know maybe it's done automatically. I'm i'm not really quite sure The user can hibernate an app. It doesn't necessarily remove it but it flushes out the cash to free up storage space Maybe this allows you on a low storage device to fit more apps on there in a more dynamic way and manage the cash that they all that space that it takes up so that you can have more absence stalled even if you aren't using them all all the time instead of having like uninstall it and then reinstalled later that's just a guest though. Which is i mean. yeah. I mean that's it's funny because this happened to my wife the other day because she had Has this auto kind of removed from the phone and put up into the cloud function if you don't use the app and she google maps actually hibernated.

Microsoft envisions 'scoring' meetings based on body language

"Microsoft has applied for a patent called meeting insight computing system. That would use a system of cameras and sensors to record data in conference rooms. Things like body language facial expressions. The amount of time participants contribute to a meeting your speech pattern quote consistent with boredom and fatigue. They'll tell of your board. Then they'll add that to whether attendants were texting or browsing the internet and that will combine with factors like was the meeting. Efficient was the room temperature. Really hot and uncomfortable and overall quality score will be created for those meetings. The system could eventually predict the likelihood of holding a high-quality meeting based on time of day who's involved etc and flag potential challenges ahead of time. Maybe suggesting alternative time or a different venue a or maybe different people different length of time. I don't know the system could be used for in person. Virtual or hybrid meetings microsoft has been working on the system since two thousand eighteen and told the bbc. The application of patent does not necessarily indicate that the technology described will be implemented in a product. This is especially interesting because microsoft is taking a bunch of heat over a productivity score that it includes in microsoft three sixty five now. This is a different thing. This is the thing. That's actually in microsoft. Three sixty five. It's not a patent. it's an opt. In feature that aggregates information. About email us network connectivity et cetera. Similar but not the same thing and security and privacy advocates this week were pointing out that one of the default settings let managers check data on individual employees which would let them see who sent the least emails who collaborated the least documents other individualized metrics organizations choose who can see that individual data with an option to anonymous. Remove it entirely but they don't have that option. User data is aggregated over a twenty. Eight day period microsoft. Rich say like well. The point of the productivity score was not to spy on people but we. I guess leave that up to the companies because they might want to bear on for a benign reason look at individual scores and compare them.

'We Are Shipping To The U.S.': Inside China's Online Synthetic Drug Networks

"One of the things that outgoing president trump did during his term was pressured. China over the drug kills tens of thousands of americans each year and much of it does come from china so more than a year ago. China banned all types of feno related compounds. Now we have learned that it sellers have adapted. They are selling the individual chemicals that can be used to make the drug and they. You're selling those ingredients more or less openly online. Our beijing correspondent. Emily fang looked into this with help from data collected by the center for advanced defense studies analyst. Michael low muller worked together that data. We spoke with both of them. What exactly to china. Due in may two thousand nineteen they decided to ban any synthetic that resembled sentinel which was a big departure from what they did. Before of banning only specific at a time a few months after this band there was a big drug bust of drug trafficking ring in china. One person was sentenced to death other people sentenced to life in prison but then there was quiet and i was curious as to wear all these people who had been selling earlier had gone and what that world look like now with this span in place how do you go about trying to find that seemingly underground world. Well that's where michael comes in. We're interested in seeing how the supply chains were operating from the point of production through sale to us and when we're looking at The salen of things we found that a lot of this activity was occurring on the open normal internet so we were looking into various advertisements that go up on these different marketplaces platforms like alibaba and other chemical and pharmaceutical marketplaces that companies reposted for in advertisements for that no one other related substances so we saw that. It was a very much out in the open. You're telling me that you could just go to a normal website Maybe not exactly amazon but alibaba's a pretty big platform mean you could go and find these things. Yes we observe that. The bulk of federal related sales activity appeared to be occurring on the clear web on ecommerce websites such as alibaba but there are also other websites that vendors use a little maintain independent websites on also using social media to facebook. It's all current very much on the open. Was it easy for you to begin. Finding the exact locations even of people who were selling ingredients offended all vendors will rarely use the actual name for drugs. So you're not going to necessarily see an advertisement that says fennel for sale. But if you know that any no holly substances are being advertise. It's very easy to find even via a simple google search. Many of these company names that are listed alongside of these advertisements are real companies. You can look them up and the chinese registry and find identifying information for them including addresses. Emily thing in beijing. What did you do with that information. Because michael had found all of these vendors with addresses. I then went to see whether these people really existed in the places. They said they were on me. Found that many of them in fact were operating in clear daylight. Many of them had offices to do sales in the middle of quite large cities in apartment buildings in shopping malls in cubicle office buildings and it speaks to how difficult it is to stop factional compounds that are cheap to make you can ship thousands of doses at a time undetected sometimes and because of the internet. These people can directly reach clients in the us and mexico and europe from an apartment building and industrial china. Would you describe your visit to one of these places. One of the main vendors that i visited calls himself. Benjamin chen line and he was one of the more active anders that see for eighty s and npr. Were able to identify. I was able to find him in remote region which is in china's northwest and during the day he worked as a salesperson selling legitimate products used in steelmaking process out there but in addition to his regular job he was also selling sentinel precursors so the type of chemical ingredients used to make fennel as well as other synthetic drugs when i met chen and his employers office. He was very nervous. He ushered me into a conference room so his colleagues couldn't hear our conversation on when i confronted him as a person who secretly dealing deadly synthetic drugs on the internet. He denied everything you know. He said he himself was not involved in any of this however headshots of him linked to fennel precursor advertisements. Do match the man that i met the phone number provided on these advertisements matches the one that chen answered and that i texted him on as did the address that he listed for some of his websites so a bottom line question then has the flow of fentanyl from china to the united states been significantly interrupted in any way by china's law enforcement. I think when it comes to finish fennel reach in the united states from china. I would speculate that. There has been a decrease in that is tough to know for sure. Though we reached out to china for comment we reached out to the national narcotics control commission which is in charge of enforcing this ban. They said that they had not seen any legal sales of sentinel class. Chemicals online within chinese borders since the ban but due to the openness and cross-border nature of the internet. Any country would have a difficult time completely eradicated illegal information. So they're saying that they have not seen illegal activity but they cannot rule out that it's not happening what we've seen in china though. Is that some kind of online activity to sell. Fennel ingredients is still happening. The us drug enforcement administration does say that. Mail shipments attentional from china to the. Us have dropped dramatically since the ban but the also says that more and more of the essential ingredients are being shipped from china to mexico where the ingredients are made into finished venture capital and then sold again into the us so the flow has not stopped but the manner by which it's reaching. The us has changed realistically synthetic drugs. Vendors are finding ways to work around the spin and some ways that are technically legal even if the effect is to be selling deadly poisonous medic drugs to people outside of

We were over ninety percent difference is tens of thousands of lives lost every year. Unnecessarily one of the things that I loved was a program that actually I stumbled upon it didn't invent it. But I can tell you. I definitely spread it. I saw one medical I walked this medical center, and there is a conference room typical conference room. In most hospitals. Stay the front is the chief of up the Malla Judy. I look around all the doctors and their greens, and nurses, and their greens and other people sitting there, no white coats. And is this woman sitting there all dressed up with flowers men sitting next to her two little kids next to him. And she walks to the stage in the chief of that up. The Molly says Sally saved a life has Sally stable life. She looked inside the comprehensive electronic health record noticed that a woman had not gotten mammogram. She needed and made sure she had done. And of course, the maverick found a cancer. Imagine how that changes perception of everyone in the room rather than do what we do at hospitals today. We give everyone data and test. We can all score one hundred on knowing that see the seals the most common bacterium. It has carried on the hands should wash ahead. We know all those things right? It's changed the context bring summer in the room who spouse died from hostile quired infection. Because someone wash their hands. And now you start to achieve change those are the kinds of experiences, and I believe leaders have to do tell everyone. See what is possible? See what is happening today and make a difference of it? This is a fantastic point that you're making here. Robert. I mean, the creation of context a lot of the leaders listening today are probably grappling with their own issues. You know, the issues within their own hospitals within their own companies. And this idea of of changing the context, you know, the different examples you provided building experiences. I mean, these are some valuable tips that you've provided a love to hear from you a time when maybe something didn't work out a setback, and what you learned from it. And maybe maybe how you built a context experience of that. So he's tough question. We always liked to think about successes willing failures. We'll give you one. Call it a personal failure more than an organizational one because I didn't do what I need to do at the particular time, I was in new leader. And I was sitting in a quality meeting. We were looking at the frequency with which we were successful of doing screening for breast cancer mammograms at the time. We were probably number one in the nation. So it was not that was bad quality. And I'll say on number was eighty percent of the appropriate women were screened and the person stubbing Fode recommended we moved to eighty two percent. So many of the people in the room who then be accountable for this thought that it was not not only was not possible. We should actually lower down to seventy eight percent and had lots of different reasons. Everyone of which was true following up of tension, abnormal. Studies more important than doing new diagnostic screening the problem is that it's tough to get women to come on in. And it's not a question of nothing. Good offer. The everyone had the reasons..

"So actually being in the conference room, I was like, oh, this is kind of like flashbacks like all the TV's, the feeling which I love, and I really did enjoy it. You in a conference room before the podcast. Okay. Sorry. No, not at all. It was great. I've been here because I travel, so no swine, like I said, it brought back actually like good memories. So for me, I was doing that and I was a crazy job. My life was a little insane. I was about to kind of go through divorce and I woke up one morning and was just like, I think Anita, meditate. I don't know why, and it wasn't even it was before the time article came out. It was before like everybody was talking about it and something just made me say it, typical males like, all right. Let me get into that. Let me research it and that day at. Which I was telling a friend of mine and I was like, I feel like I wanna meditate, you know anyone. I need a teacher. I need something. I don't even know where to begin like I knew nothing. She's like, oh, that's so funny here. I know these two great girls were actually on NBC at the time who just did it to get their name of the teacher free. Perfect on. Yeah, they were too like actors. And so I went to go take out my phone to text. One of my best friends who worked with me at undersea to say, hey, would you wanna do this with him about to get this number? And I'm not joking. When I took out my phone, she just text me and say, hey, I just got hooked up with this teacher to learn a meditate. Would you have any interest? I mean, it was Dr and so we did. It was me my friend Renat our head of casting and the three of us learn TM from a teacher. Meditation and it was great, and it was kind of hilarious because we were doing it. We would literally do it in the con- like in our conference room where one of our rooms. And since I ran the department, I could carve it out in our schedule. So so my friend and I every day at x. time for twenty minutes like they knew not to interrupt us. That's what we were doing it. Anyone else who wanted to join and to be honest like, that's how I got into it. And the reason I ended up starting doing what I do was because I was looking to keep my practice regular and I couldn't do it like I'm such the average human being where actually getting up and doing it and doing it at home was difficult for me. So I was trying to do it twice a day. And I kept saying, where can I team? They tell you do twenty minutes at that time I've heard now they've done on at ten minutes is what I heard, because I think they're like, yeah, people are really struggling with twenty. But yeah, they tell you twenty minutes twice a day in a perfect world. And so I was struggling with that second twenty minutes. So I kept saying, oh, no big deal.
