David Drucker on the Creation of the Ronna McDaniel Storyline
"M drucker on Twitter is now with the dispatch where he writes their weekly dispatch on American politics. David, good morning to you. How are you? Great. Good morning. Ronna mcdaniel won easily. I was at the convention. The Republican National Committee winner meaning she won by 70% of the ballots on the first ballot. This was a non story that became a story because harmony was very verbal and very loud and she had a lot of good friends and I salute her running and Mike lindell was there and my colleagues create some media attention. But why does the media create storylines when there is no storyline, David? Well, because we have to cover something even if we don't have to cover it and it's much more interesting to cover if there's a storyline and we're likely to have more readers if there's a storyline. Now I will say you and that's just by the way, that's the journalism answer. I know I've sounded a little glib there. So we always look for a way to make it look more interesting. I will say that Hermes had a lot of grassroots outside activist support. There are different. As you know, factions within the Republican Party and outside of the voting members, she had a lot of local support. Of course, the way you win that race is to run an inside game, catering to the 168, you don't bring outside pressure to bear, even though she is one of the voting 168 RNC members. She really relied on outside pressure that's just not the way you win a race like that.

Doug Welcomes Former Democratic NY State Senator David Carlucci
"Everybody, welcome back to the college podcast. Good show today for you got a good friend coming back home. One in which we disagree on things. We're often found on Fox News being pitted against each other. It's pretty funny. But considering we do agree on a lot of things, but we do disagree for a political perspective. David Carlos is back with me, a former democratic state senator from New York. And we're going to have this conversation on what's going on. The recent elections, just some right left takes if you would, and see who we can find some agreement to go. But David's good to have you back. Yeah, thanks for having me. It's always great to be with you. That's fun. I mean, you and I sort of funny because you and I always, especially with Harris and Harris, in particular, fault in our own fault and folks, you and I get put on opposite sides of different things. And I'll be honest, here recently, especially with some of the topics, I was on my side than your side on a couple of those. Well, it's been fun. I think, yeah, they've had us on a bunch and last time, they said, hey, thanks for the spirited debate. And it's like, okay, you know, it was almost like a conversation that we were having. But, you know, I think that's important, right? And that's why it's an honor for me to be on your show. I've been able to listen to your show and disagree with you on most things, right? But that's good. You know, I wanted to learn more. And where you're coming from on these issues. And you're open to hearing about my experience. And I think that's what we need to do,

Republicans Discuss How to Move Away From Trump
"Welcome back, America two here at David and drucker. I didn't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan either because he is from California, but he was in Las Vegas last week for the first Republican candidate walk. It sort of like a fashion show and all the Republican candidates show up and this time it was the Republican Jewish coalition headed up by our old friend norm Coleman. David good, Thanksgiving week to you. What did you learn in Las Vegas? I tweeted out your article, but you tell us. It was very interesting weekend. I think what struck me the most is that there is a lot of consideration now and very open public consideration of whether or not they want, whether or not Republican activists and donors, but not just donors, but activists, people who knock on doors, all of that stuff. Want Donald Trump to continue to be the titular head of the party. He's obviously the FrontRunner for the 2024 nomination having announced he's a former president. He's got a very strong relationship with the Republican base. But after three consecutive electoral defeats, particularly this last one stinging because of how it unfolded and the opportunities that were there for Republicans, there was just a lot of talk about wanting fresh leadership continue the former president's policies by and large, but somebody fresh. I got that. Not just Rome Republicans who want to take his place, like Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence, Chris Christie, Nikki Haley. I talked to a number of Republicans, not Haley, but a number of the names that I just listed. But also just talking to the activists that were there. And I think people need to keep in mind the Republican Jewish coalition initially skeptical of Trump in the 2016 campaign really warm to him quite immensely because his record in the Middle East and as it relates to Israel and Iran and everything else in that region of the world was stellar from their point of view and very accomplished from their point of view. So it's not like, well, they never really liked them anyway. If you became a fan favorite.

The GOP Whip Race in the House
"Beltway has many, many competitions within it right now. One is underway to become the minority whip and a new House Republican majority should that come to pass. Kevin McCarthy, the speaker, Steve scalise, the majority leader who would be the whip. Many people think it will be at least, but I think Elise Stefanik wants to be chairman of education and labor and razor national profile. Whip is an inside game. Jim banks of Indiana is my favorite candidate for that and it turns out David drucker was doing some reporting and he finds out Jim banks campaigning for it. What do you say, David, good morning? Morning hill. Yeah, I was in Iowa over the weekend and Jim banks was just outside of Cedar Rapids. Speaking at an event, we're actually Henson, a freshman representative from that part of the country. And he's traveling all over the place. And of course, this is what you do when you want to try and build a majority, win in November, but also when you want to try and collect chips and votes for a leadership election that will occur after election day. And of course, Republicans need to win the majority for this slot to open up, but I spent a little time with banks. And he talked about how he's used the job. What do you think is Kevin McCarthy as a potential speaker? And how he thinks a Republican majority will function if they can win and remember again, it's the problem you want, but winning these majorities, especially when they're still going to be a Democrat in The White House and the Senate, even if Republicans win the majority without 60 votes, it can be very challenging.

"Pellet Fed chair Jay Powell last week told us that supply chain problems were leading to inflation but they also appear to be keeping us from buying some things at any price inflated or otherwise As stores have trouble stocking some goods to lay out the problem now just anchored Vice president for supply chain at the retail industry leaders association just thanks so much for being with us Let's start with what the problem is because you are on the ground level you know what it is What is the problem with the supply chain when it comes to retailers Yes Thank you David Good to be here Really what it is is just kind of a confluence of circumstances surrounding holiday and omicron surge We've seen throughout the pandemic kind of a baseline level of workforce constraints and supply chain disruptions and largely retailers and the broader supply chain ecosystem have gotten to point they have the playbook to deal with these issues that we've been seeing for the past 20 some months What we see around the holiday period is an increase from the impact of absenteeism both on the production side and in stores and distribution facilities and so forth production constraints on the production side in terms of caused by some of that absenteeism tight capacity in terms of trucking and transportation mode And then also increased demand from the holidays more people may be staying home not going out as much because winter and holidays having people over increased demand on food So we are thinking in some areas you're seeing pockets of these temporary product outages Again but temporary and often it's driven by the ability to restock those shelves So largely that product is in the supply chain It's just taking a minute for the supply chain to catch up from a lot of these impacts that we're seeing over the past handful of weeks Jesse you mentioned the holiday period and going into it We were concerned about what that would mean for people buying gifts and buying other things for the holidays We're past the holidays now Are we seeing it ease Because some people thought there might be a glut of supply after we got past the holidays Holiday is a great example We saw a lot of heading into the holidays of the shells going to be there People are going to be able to buy things for the holiday period and largely retailers delivered and we saw a really great season for holiday purchases very strong for the retail industry So you saw those full shelves and that illustrates how well retailers and again the broader ecosystem have been able to work past or work through the challenges that we've seen throughout the pandemic Even in spite of the widespread supply chain congestion and disruption which again we'll continue to see congestion and disruptions Again if that kind of what we now think of to be normal levels after 20 some months that's what the thing is expected to continue into and through largely in 2022 But that baseline level of the disruption is something that the industry is largely been able to deal with They have that playbook of how to navigate that What we saw is impact from the holidays of this kind of additional incremental circumstances that are causing some of the product outages in grocery that we're seeing now But as that begins to dissipate and we've already seen that dissipate to some degree really those are temporary isolated pockets of product outages And as we get further away from that and see those impacts dissipate in the supply chain Has a chance to catch up you'll see less and less of that Back at the end of November you was when your colleagues at RI LA wrote the president suggesting some very specific things that could be done with the supply chain which I think go to some of the congestion you just referred to Could you give us a sense of whether those things have been done are being done have they helped alleviate the problem Yeah It's a complex system of systems So there are a lot of levers that play And there's no single bullet there's not a couple of single silver bullets that will address the issue Some of the things that we highlighted and that the administration has been working on as well as again the broader ecosystem reports other shippers other stakeholders have been trying to work together on But I think what we're seeing improvement and certainly in terms of the fluidity in Southern California and the port there But there's still a lot of work to be done and again we'll see congestion continue in 2022 but there are still the systemic underlying issues that existed before the pandemic that we're really just exacerbated by the pandemic So a lot of the things that we recommended in other stakeholders of recommended in terms of certainly the infrastructure investment and the physical piece is very important but also the visibility piece and the data standards and interoperability for better communication and data around that And then also just addressing some of the operational issues regarding return of empty containers and the flow of things through major ports and the returning containers into that working with all of these stakeholders to include the ocean carriers The shipping lines and the terminal operators in the ports bringing everybody to together to address some of these issues and increase the visibility and the data sharing One of the things I was going to ask you about was actually the container problem which we've heard a fair amount about now A lot of empty containers that aren't getting offloaded chassis You can't put them on Is that situation better now And have they facilitated some of the regulatory relief that you would suggest it Well I think it kind of ebbs and flows but it's still a significant problem particularly looking at the numbers of empty containers and just the challenges really in returning those and particularly looking at Southern California and some of the challenges there There again a lot of it goes to the kind of data sharing and the communication and the visibility piece to that where there's more understanding and communication of where it's possible to return the empties make that an easier system So it's not such a burden on those frontline truckers who are really the ones comparing the brunt of this in terms of just trying to return an empty free up the wheels with chassis in order to pick up and loaded container and get it out And that's what's driving the congestion So the more we can increase the communication the transparency around that and reduce some of those restrictions and restrictive appointment requirements the.

"This is morning edition from NPR news I'm Debbie Elliott in orange beach Alabama And I'm Stevens keep in Washington D.C. President Biden's choice to be a top banking regulator withdrew her nomination Sally Amaro faced opposition from Republicans and skepticism from some Democrats Some lawmakers had sincere disagreements with their academic research and a few went right on to suggest that she's a communist because this U.S. citizen was born in the former Soviet Union And pierce David gera is here David good morning Morning Steve why was Saleh amarok and nominated in the first place Well she's a Cornell University law professor and expert on financial regulation and she's also been a pretty prolific academic researcher President Biden picked a to be the next comptroller of the currency which is an important job the office of the comptroller of the currency overseas about a thousand banks nationwide including some of the big ones but also many smaller community banks Roof has had the support of progressives because in her research Steve she's proposed some pretty bold ideas to remake the U.S. financial system and she's always been an advocate for a tougher approach to regulating banks but many other lawmakers saw those views as quote too radical The weeks wore on Amarillo's path to confirmation seemed to get more and more difficult especially some Democrats expressed hesitation So she decided to call it quits She wrote a letter of The White House that was released on Tuesday in which she wrote quote it is no longer tenable for me to continue as a presidential nominee What exactly did she write about that seemed too radical for some senators Yeah let's dig into that academic research Some of what Sally Amaro has proposed is pretty provocative She's characterized one controversial paper of hers as quote a blueprint for a comprehensive restructuring of the core architecture of modern finance She suggests the Federal Reserve could get into the business of retail banking The Americans could open bank accounts with the Federal Reserve partly to reduce the number of people who don't have bank accounts Now Republican lawmakers along with several banking groups suggested that by advancing that argument I'm arova is someone who wants to nationalize the U.S. banking sector She denied that during a contentious confirmation hearing a few weeks ago if it tried to make a distinction between arguments she's made as an academic and what she would do if she were making policy by emphasizing she would always follow the letter of the law Here's what omarosa said to senator Patrick to me the ranking member of the banking committee I just want to clarify my job as an academic was to expand the boundaries of the academic debate and outline potential options for Congress to consider This is entirely up to Congress whether or not to go that Sure of course ultimately That's several lawmakers Steve including senator toomey didn't seem to think that distinction that omarova was making made much of a difference Well some of these are classic debates does a public servant follow the law and do their job or follow their personal beliefs for example and what kind of banking sector do you really want That seems like a legitimate subject of debate but it seems to me the confirmation battle went beyond that Yeah it got pretty ugly at times Steve salama is a U.S. citizen as you mentioned she was born in the former Soviet Union and what's now Kazakhstan she got her undergraduate degree from Moscow state university And in a dramatic exchange during that confirmation hearing Republican senator John Kennedy asked omarova about her upbringing and her beliefs I don't mean any disrespect I don't know whether to call you professor or comrade Oh my goodness Senator I'm not a communist I do not subscribe to that ideology I could not choose where I was born President Biden and his statement said Amarillo was quote subjected to inappropriate personal attacks that were far beyond the pale the chairman of the banking committee echoed that democratic senator sherrod Brown of Ohio Saddam arova was the subject of a relentless smear campaign reminiscent of red scare mccarthyism Steve and powerful interests as he put it shamefully attacked her family her heritage and her commitment to American ideals I'm just dwelling on the first words by senator Kennedy there I don't mean any disrespect he said and then went on to say what he said So what happens now We'll press and bind to continue to work to find a nominee for this position Look the administration's ideal candidate is someone who could help advance its regulatory agenda who could try to rein in banks who could reduce the number of Americans who are unbanked who don't have bank accounts basically Steve they're looking for someone who has these progressive bona fides but can also get confirmed by the Congress David thanks for the update Really appreciate it Thank you Steve The NPR's David giraffe For many families in Vermont it wouldn't be the holidays without a trip to white's Christmas tree farm

Rectangles is to try and share content. That we feel deserves more. Attention doesn't necessarily need to be from smaller creator or medium-sized channel. Someone just getting started. We can highlight work from much larger publications and organizations but the goal isn't just hype train. Something that's already popular. It's to share something that we feel deserve. more attention. say there was a really great nuts and bolts.

I dunno just spitballing some ideas. But i wanna hear from everyone in the chat and then also hit me up if you're catching this on the replay crew. What should we do. I want celebrate this. I missed one thousand subscribers. One thousand members wanna do something fun for two thousand and we're only twenty two subscriptions away so if you're out there sharing we could probably make up twenty two members really fast like if you're supporting this idea in this initiative and you're you're you're trying to promote people that you care about the content that you liked to watch so anyway i had a good. I had a good week my amp video. My headphone amphibia was the number one. And how techies get camera reviews wrong was number two. My view was number four.

He brings them into that. Video are going to be familiar. Because they're the kinds of editorials that i've written about how rigged the review space is currently for popularity is the stuff that gets me mocked on our android why. Everyone seems to think that i'm some kind of hater. I was schill. Lg because let me tell you being a chauffeur lg makes you know money like none when we're talking about producing videos but that's must be what it is. Because of reasons increasingly i have found the color and the tone of the conversation coming from a number of larger creators and reviewers is starting to get a little defensive. It is not because of me. I really do feel it is because of the ongoing eb and flow of tech enthusiasts who leaving the tech conversation space because the quality of the conversation is dropping. The quality of the conversation is becoming very shallow is focusing more on writing the hype train and is sort of leaning into the preference of pretty video production over more insightful commentary you can give me really juicy crispy b roll and you just read the specs off at me and you sort of validate the p- bias of an audience. Then that's all you need to do to be successful. And i feel like that's worked for a really long time. But it's sort of driven out the nuts and bolts techies and it really hasn't brought new consumers into our ranks in fact it increasingly drives out the average consumers. Because they're not. They're not getting anything insightful. They're not being educated. They're not being informed and they're increasingly being shown ridiculously expensive consumer electronics talked about as if they are the foregone conclusion options for average consumers as soon as you hear folding phone and well what average people are going to do on it. You've lost the plot. You are so far off the pulse bad metaphor about trying to find the pulse. You're actually manhandling a cantaloupe. How to make that joke land so old.

I don't believe it was the airplane fuel because it does not burn hot enough. I believe it was the same principle by which a microwave oven operates. Which is to stimulate And accelerate the vibration of water in the microwave oven if you had a resonant frequency generator And it would have to be very powerful, very intense and focused. You could actually do the same thing with the molecular structure of steel. And simultaneously you would evaporate the water in the building, too, and it would cause a freefall collapse. Stand it. Technology that's been theorized in science fiction for years. It's the same technology in Star Trek that was called disruptor technology that was used by the Quinones. All right. Any thoughts on that, David? I think if you're going to propose something like that, You need to show if feasibility, and, uh, you know, it would be incumbent at your if you're the one who's putting this idea forward. You have to come up with some sort of evidence or some sort of mechanism, some sort of a way to make it a plausible hypothesis. Um, I work on the basis of science and the evidence that we have We do have concrete evidence of the fact that Nano thermite was used. An ordinary thermite was apparently also used. But there is also probably Explosives. The Marmite is easier to detect because it leaves a residue that we're able to identify. So that's what we've identified. We're not saying that's the only thing that was used. But the idea that it was brought down by some novel means well, you can wave your hands and say anything you want, but you need to somehow Show that If you think that's a plausible mechanism, you sort of need to do a demonstration of the plausibility somehow. Terry. Thank you for the call. Once you demonstrate that the free fall was caused by some outside power. Energy source. Does it really? I mean, does it really matter at that point, then it becomes almost like you're counting blades of grass on the grassy knoll. You know what I mean? Like the details. Once you've demonstrated that it had to have been controlled demolition does it really matter? What the actual agent was right. That's I mean, that's all become secondary. It's important to establish, uh what it is in terms of what does the evidence show actually happened? Because of establishing, uh plausibility. If you base list the same idea to say that it was explosives or whatever. You know, something had to clear it out. Um, you can see evidence that it was explosives. And so that helps to established that For something was used to clear out the Building underneath where it was falling. So By the way, I did my analysis not only of building seven but of the North Tower That's the wonderful mouth on club and track the roof roof line of the North tower. It came down not at free fall, but it came down at two thirds of free fall, but it was accelerating the entire time. That reflection was visible, which it means there is a little more math in the background, but it has the same exact implications. That it could not possibly be the falling material that's doing the crushing It was something clearing the way ahead of the falling chunk of the building. So in any case, all of the buildings were there, set up in slightly different ways because of the geometry of the buildings were different, but all of them is very clear indication that there was The use of demolition technology. And why. Just two thirds freefall speed. Why didn't well, I'm not sure why I accepted the fact that you can measure that That's what it did. I'm just I'm using my tracking software again and you measure it. The thing is it, uh, it was not completely cut free to just drop. It was mostly cut free, so there's remnant amounts of support that it was having to Buckle from stuff that came down but they took out the they literally had to take out the calculation. I did as they had to take out about 90%. Of the support in order for it to fall at the rate that you observe. Okay, that's sort of what's going on there. All right, Let's say hi to, um Michael is in Virginia Beach, Michael. Welcome to coast. Uh, thank you so much. Rickard. You've done a great service for America tonight and for the whole world. And, uh, in that regard, I don't think anybody does it as well as you. I appreciate that. Thank you together the really critical issues, uh, breaking down the details. But there's something missing.

I think we can, uh, let's see Ralph is in Sunbury, Pennsylvania, Ralph welcome. Yes. I have a couple questions here regarding building number seven. I remember hearing on the media. That there were reports that building number seven was damaged by the towers. I don't know if metal was falling on top of it or whatever, but it was a hazard to the workers there, so they intentionally destroyed it. Uh, I don't know.

"The hostess toast he'll be back will re establish that all right. So, in addition to that, I still want to get my thoughts in on Manny Pacquiao sometime this hour. I want to share my thoughts there. Your phone number is told for its wide open, You can hit me up on social media at Jim Rome. It also works on Instagram at Jim Rome. Haven't even finished my thoughts on the NFL weekend. I give you a complete recap, but I have more thoughts about what's going on with the Bears quarterback situation. And I am looking for your telephone calls. NFL season right around the corner. And I found my guy. He is the head football coach at Stanford. He is in his 11th season as head coach. He's led the cardinal to three Pac 12 titles, three Rose Bowl appearances. He has been a national coach of the year. A four time conference coach of the year. Stanford's going to open up against Kansas State. September 4th. It's right around the corner. Interestingly That's a nine AM game so we can get into that to David Shaw is my guest. David. Good to have you back. How are you? I'm great room. How you doing? Good. Do good. Always good to have you on. So let me start right here. We are less than two weeks away from your season opener against K State, the country still dealing with Covid and covid protocols. But from where you're sitting, Does it feel like there's a return to normalcy this season was something close to it. How does it feel to you? It really does. We're really close to normal. We're still masking indoors here. We're still operating in such a way that keeps our guys safe. We have some guys that are unvaccinated. We have a lot of our guys that are vaccinated, so we're just operating with caution. But we're still meeting. We're still going out there Practicing. Our guys are still living relatively normal lives, although trying to be safe, Um it's really, really close to normal. So there really quickly like in terms of guys were unvaccinated. Obviously, it's a very personal choice. And I know you've got a great deal of respect for that. How do you process that? Like what kind of conversations do you have? A guys were unvaccinated or maybe, don't you? The first thing I talked to them all the same and talk to them all together and say, Look, this is a private choice that you're making. Here's the information that we're giving you but the bottom line is we came together to Stanford to do something great. You came to do something great on the field. Do something great off the field. We're on the same page. We are together and we support each other's choices. So beyond that, whatever you choose, do that's great, uh and we will come together and play this great sport and hopefully all of our guys graduate and do something special. Be on Stanford. David Shaw is joining us, You know, because of what you went through. Last year, there was this notion of a quote band of brothers feeling that came because of all the challenges that went with the covid related situation. You never want to go through something like that. But how valuable is it to be able to take An experience like that and create those kinds of bonds and relationships out of it. Oh, well, The bonds are stronger. Sometimes when we go through things that are difficult, Um, so I tell these guys all the time anybody who's successful in anything They usually have a couple of scars right? Because sometimes that's what propels you for difficult things and we lost our starting quarterback before the the game first game against Oregon with a bad test. We had a lot of things we got kicked out of our county. But every week we got better. We get closer. We get tighter, and hopefully we can that continues on this season. There's no doubt like I don't want to recap the entire year and I know you're looking ahead. But I mean, you start off and two and then you win four straight, and it's not just that You won four straight at the end. David's like we were just talking about you guys were holding practices at different high schools. You had to walk through in a public park. You launched your quarterback. I mean, what was that whole experience like for you and the program? It makes you realize that you're not in control. And you know you've talked to a lot of football coaches. That is the one thing that drives football coaches crazy more than anything is not being in control of your environment that begin to hold your team in your situation, but It made us nimble. Hey, we have to adjust. Hey, we started to smile and laugh when things went quite difficult. Right. So the thing is when we got in the middle of a game that was really tight and and and maybe the other team starts tighten up a little bit are guys like? Hey, we've been living this for eight months. Right, They'll throw something in our face. Okay, Great. We get tired that we played better. We're going to find a way to win. And that's what happened last year. I like it. Stanford head football coach David Shaw, My guest. All right. So in terms of the quarterback Davis Mills goes to the NFL this year, So there is an opening to address at that position overall, though, let me ask about the offense. When you look at the talent you have on the offense. Does this feel like this might be one of the more if not most balanced groups. You've had in a while there. It really does feel that way. I think by the end of the year people are going to see we may have one of the best running back groups in America. We have multiple guys that better. That could be starters. Uh, they have to have some versatility. We've got a great group of tight ends that we feel great about. We've got a great group of receivers, so I think we're going to be able to get to our big people packages. And throw those big offensive lineup linemen out there and run the power play. But we're also people spread people out with five receivers and then throw it that way. So and everything in between. So that's what I'm excited about. We have an opportunity present the defense with a lot of different problems. We're talking to David Shaw. So when it comes to finding the guy that you want to have understand, or you said something I thought very interesting Recently, when you were talking to the athletic. You talked about authentic leadership at the quarterback position. What do you mean by that? How would you define authentic leadership? And what are you looking for? From that guy? I I always look at it this way. Like People put me and Jim Harbaugh kind of against each other for a bunch of different reasons, which someone don't make any sense. But it's because our personalities are so different. But it deals that Jim is who he is. And I am who I am, and they both work. So leadership to me has a lot to do with being yourself and being open and being honest. And your teammates. You write your coaches of the people around you. They can trust who you're going to be. So it's okay if guys are differently different ways as long as there themselves and they come open and aggressive. And being themselves in those environments. They get the proper response from the guys that they're leading. We're talking to David Shaw. All right, then. So you mentioned the defense. Thomas Booker is one of the best deal alignment in the country. And if that's all he was, that would be pretty impressive in and of itself..

Tcl is known as a relatively affordable tv and in our reviews we. We've given us a pretty good picture. Quality the higher end models are some of the best picture quality for the money and so they said this year that they're finally gonna come out with k. Tv they're gonna be joining samsung l. g. Sony in the eight k. Race all those brands are a lot more expensive than this. Tci also sixty five inches. The smallest You can get this. Tv in its twenty two hundred dollars and the cheapest You know. Non ak tv out there. Sixty five inches is about three grand. So that's a big discount He seattle is being very aggressive with the price. And just so. I think it's good context around that. It's like a sixty five inch four k. A very nice sixty five inch four k. tv. How much is that going to cost you about Twenty two twenty three hundred bucks. the best metric is a. Lg's a lead tv's and those are four k. resolution of the affordable ones or four k. resolution and Their series which is their mainstream series. Which is a spectacular television Right now caused by twenty two hundred bucks twenty three hundred bucks so about one hundred dollars slightly more expensive than the tcl but it's an old lead. You know based on everything. I've seen i'll say this upfront. Haven't seen this. Tcl eight k tv at in person. So i don't know for sure. What is fish qualities like but just based on underlying technology led versus you know the q. Lead lcd technology that uses. I think the g. lead will have a better overall picture despite having lower resolution.

Who Wins Or Loses If There's An Increase In The Federal Minimum Wage?
"The covid relief bill moving through congress includes a higher minimum wage for someone like lisa harris. Who works grocery store outside richmond. Virginia that make a big difference able to afford the things that i need to get by day to day without having to ask one ability to feel that i am a contributing member to byatti. I mean they say thank you and that were essential. That were heroes. But we can't feed our families off of being heroes scaling up from seven. Twenty five an hour to fifteen dollars. An hour is still running into resistance though and testing democratic unity in congress. David wessel is following. The debate is of the hutchins center at the brookings institution. David good morning. Good morning steve. So there's always case made against raising the minimum wage. We're told that if you raise the minimum wage employers are just going to hire fewer people. What's the evidence here. Well textbook economic says if you raise the price of something there's going to be less demand for it. In this case less demand from employers for low wage essential workers now the question is how many winners and how many losers one influential estimate comes from the congressional budget office. They estimate that by twenty twenty five which is when the wages supposed to get to fifteen dollars. It would mean twenty. Seven million people would be getting a raise. Nine hundred thousand fewer people would be in poverty but one point four million fewer people would be working or not having got hired on the other hand economist. Aaron debate at the university of massachusetts at amherst has been looking at what happens when states raise minimum wages and he argues that the latest evidence suggests that. Cbo is overestimating the ill effects of raising the wage. A fifteen bucks okay. So a lot of people benefit. Some people may be hurt. But there's an argument over how many people are actually hurt. That's the point of view of the employees. What about the employer. business owners objected. Here well it would raise their payroll costs for sure now. Some employers would may discover that they have better workers or less turnover so it might not hurt them that much some would suck it up in the form of lower profits somewhat. Pass it onto their consumers in the form of higher prices and some would get by with fewer workers are cut the hours of their workers they would clearly be very painful for some businesses and particularly for some businesses like those in the fast food industry that already been hit hard by the covid pandemic but really interesting new academic paper that looked at ten thousand mcdonald's outlets many of them in states or cities that have raised. The minimum wage found that nearly all of them raise prices to cover the extra costs and interestingly it found that despite higher labor costs they didn't more of them didn't install high-tech touch screen ordering that potentially saves labor which suggests that consumers would pay but workers would benefit as well. David you've referred a couple of times here to the fact that some states have already raised the minimum wage. Well above what the federal minimum is. When you look at this debate does it. Matter what part of the country we're looking at it matters a lot. Twenty nine states and the district of columbia have set their minimum wages above the federal seven. Twenty five and hour minimum and so have several cities raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. An hour across the country would have a huge impact on some states in the south that are paying seven two thousand five hundred minimum wage or state like west virginia where the minimum wage is now. Eight dollars and seventy five cents an hour. That's of course politically important. Because democrat senator joe manchin has indicated. He's against a fifteen hour wage and his opposition could be fatal to the proposal but a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage would have much less impact in states. Like california where it's already set to go to fifteen dollars. It's thirteen dollars now. And in florida voters in november approved a referendum that takes their minimum wage to fifteen bucks over the next few years no matter what congress does anything special about going up to exactly fifteen an hour. Not really it's politically important. The fact is that the minimum wage has been stuck at seven twenty five since two thousand nine. It would be close to nine dollars. An hour fifty kept up with inflation since

We are having some technical difficulties here, but we're making do with the modification. The equipment. Were to continue the program, obviously talking and paying tribute to deputy Adam Gibson, who was laid to rest today. Also looking at a greater context of the That then the nature of attitude towards public safety and law enforcement in the 21st century. It looks as though we are in a period of time in which Politicians and policymakers are not taking this obligation. As seriously as 1 may think, have evidence by a rather poor showing for people, especially one with a particular political ideology. At at the occasion of Ah Memorial service for a fallen law enforcement officer that significant, it's palpable. I understand it's covert times.

But the greater concern I have is, it seems as though this is just this is one part of it is the emotional. The The moral support for the cause is one thing, but it looks as though the substantive support is waning as well. And what does that portend for the future? I think bad times, frankly. If you look at the city of Portland Once upon a time that was rated as the best US city and wish to live and invest, and it dropped the number two, then went back to one. Well, it has plummeted now real estate values or dropping. Nobody wants to do business there because they have lost their capacity to come to terms with the The impact of lawlessness on the quality of life in a community smart, both question. 40 days just simply that you believe that the politicians air making a big mistake. By failing to recognize the importance of public safety and well that well, that cause problems down the road mice. My answer and my mind, it is pretty clear. I think that is very much the case. On. I'm very, very concerned about where we go from here at the did the palpable resistance to the idea of supporting the effort to keep people safe and understanding the and respecting the time honored traditions. That are necessary to continue that effort. Ah, I think is something that can have a tremendous adverse impact on society. Your thoughts 808 34 15 30. Let's get your calls. Was checking with David in Sacramento. David Good afternoon. Welcome to the conversation. Thank you for holding on. Thank you, Sheriff. This is a very sad day. I will be concise Drive Two questions for you Draw with the Officer Gibson slain was that person involved that felon a product of prop 47 release. Number one. Honestly. No, I don't. I honestly don't know that he was may have been prop 47. They have been prop 57. But I'm reasonably certain that 81 on nine played a part and he was a parolee. He did have a criminal history, Felonious criminal history and by the way, significant mental health problems in two states now that in California Somebody who was predictably going to cause problems for the future. You should have never been on the street. Second question of all, and this is this is this is what I want to ask you about so needed the governor the attorney general attended, Nor did they send a representative to this officer's funeral. Not that I saw. Not that I saw. You know what? You know what, John? Probably I probably speak for a lot of citizens here in the city and county. We're sick of this stuff. These guys absolutely do not care and the leadership from the top to the bottom. Have made this state broken. We're stuck just like this. You don't have the common courtesy of or decent seek to come and express your remorse over the loss. The police officer's life. The sheriff's deputy Yeah, all right. I think it's an important part of society together. The tradition has always been On. There are exceptions, when for legitimate reasons, as one of them can't make it. That's understood. But I certainly notice their absence today, and I noticed the absence of others that would typically be there. But I am grateful for those who were and but it has really honestly I want to extend my support my compassion for the members of law enforcement community and in this region as well as the Gibson family, which, by the way, I'd never have met them. But I certainly got a very, very positive feeling about who they are today. Very, very, very nice, decent people. It was painfully obvious. And they're dealing with this. I think in an extraordinary fashion, but my bigger concern. Frankly, David is what this says about the prioritizing of Public safety for you and for the rest of society and fight point. Honestly, this is the this become a political hot potato. Nobody wants to touch it. It seems as though public safety is radioactive. There's a period in time in which Politicians across the spectrum wanted desperately to be seen as supportive of law enforcement in the rule of law that has changed dramatically in the last several years. And we're living in the period time in which you see Significant efforts to unseat law and justice, Prosecutors, Law and Justice Sheriff's Ah City Council members and mayors who may be inclined to be supportive of Of law enforcement in the rule of law had become extraordinarily unpopular. Look what happens in jurisdictions where that becomes reality. You can see the adverse consequences that play out and how it hurts communities significantly. So, Yeah, I think you're onto something. And I My strong suspicion is that you're not alone. By the way, I have to give a shout out the people who were along the procession route just extraordinarily. Um, just just very, very nice people and abundance of them. And they all seem to be very, very respectful. Flying flags, the blue line flags. Holding signs and and being a very, very supportive and I think that that shows where many in the community see this situation and they respect and appreciate the fact. That there are people and a system that are willing and present and capable of protecting them. And, frankly, I think we're losing a part of the political group. That's that's not understanding that I appreciate you call very much. We gotta take care of some other business here. We're coming back with more calls right after this. Don't go away. There's something to say. Thanks.

Right now There's lots of different Ports of entry with with information We want to make sure that's all aligned because it is and this is, by the way again, nothing unique to the state of Indiana. Um, but this is a very And it goes back decades very complex and slow system that's built. Currently, We want to make sure that again we're more nimble and able to react. But they emphasis again on quality of care. Now comes you said you had a second question. Yeah, it wasn't talked a little bit more about local health departments. You know, we're one of the lowest funded in terms of public health. We want to talk about public health outcomes. Overdoses are spiking in conjunction with our public nature in crisis. And it's always easy for in terms of that the comprehensive assessor of local health departments. What exactly does that mean? And should public health departments get more funding if it was available? Well, that's part that's going to be part of the conversation that we're gonna have and that we are having right now, but we want to formalize it and organize those conversations and where we need to make legislative and where we can make legislative Gain or that's necessary will strike while they aren't hot, But this is a This is a long term conversation that we want to make sure that Aziz you say. Um, that there is hand in glove relationship between the local health departments and the state health departments, and by the way That's that's also been one thing that's been Really highlighted throughout. This all is regional approach to this as well because so many of our Larger health departments or are bigger cities are rightly reaching out and are smaller communities are rightly reaching out because we're all kind of one big family, and there's a lot of committing that goes on whether you live in Evansville or Princeton or Or Petersburg on so that Regional connection. Is as important especially during a public health emergency, that regional awareness is just as important as the state and local relationship. David Williams with wish TV. Morning, David Good morning governor and its head governor. We need two part question for you, Governor going back to teacher compensation. I know you said you're going to be with you and consider the recommendations in that report. Could you dive into what That means? Specifically, Then the second part. Could you talk directly to who's your teachers who have pushed so hard for change? And are still waiting. Well, um, yeah, I can talk to teachers directly, and I hear from teachers directly, um We have had a very constructive and productive relationship. Over the last four years, we've seen record increases. Um, on top of Over 50% of our budget going toward education, and yet we still have Of increased at the last budget. We increased by about 190 million, and we found other ways too. Get dollars. To local school corporations and and, uh More than suggesting, but recommending strongly recommending that that those dollars obviously are locally bargain, but that those dollars would then get into teacher paychecks. And so I think that our Record. Doesn't just suggest it shows that we're committed to this goal. We set a couple years ago that we knew that we had further to go. And we wanted this to be very comprehensive fact based on band. What I've said in the past is, I think that there Um Needs to be an average you know, beginning and in an average teacher salary in the state of Indiana that is equal to or better than all of our competition in the in the Midwest. And so will continue to. That's what this report. The commission's report is all about. It lays out a lot of different alternative some of which would be a lot more digestible by some than others. I read One account that said, there's there's a lot to like in it, and there's a lot not to like, you know. Well, they probably did their job. Great job, by the way, putting together of a spectrum of options and so we'll look at them and we'll try to make as much gain as we can. Every single year that we're here, and that's what we've done in the past, and that's what we'll continue to do. And this and this commission's report is a Wonderful blueprint on ways different ways to do that. Now. The other thing that's very important about this is the local communities. Obviously local school corporations, the taxpayers, the citizens that live in these communities. Have a lot teachers included, by the way principals. Superintendents have a lot to say about what goes on locally and so as we continue to put more And prioritizing increasing dollars to the top of that funnel. We want to make sure it gets into teacher paychecks, and we'll have to continue to partner as we have with superintendents with principles with teachers.

It's official: U.S. recession began in February
"It is official the recession began in February that's according to the national bureau of economic research which studies such things but for federal reserve officials gathering this week the question is when will this recession end and what will the economic recovery look like David Wessel is director of the Hutchins center at the Brookings Institution and he joins us with some answers hi David good morning so the recession is now four months old which is nice to know I guess we've been in this for awhile and hopefully what that means we'll get out but when when will that happen when is it gonna end David it's a good question you know this is a really unique recession that was triggered by the government ordering a shut down of the economy it was very abrupt it was very deep the April may June quarter will be one of the worst on record technically the recessional be over when the economy stops contracting it starts growing again the best gas of forecasters that'll occur sometime this summer doesn't mean the economy is going to be healthy or that unemployment will go back below four percent only the things will start getting better rather than worse sometime this summer so getting better is better thing worse but when the forecasters at the fed and in the private sector look into their crystal balls that aren't so crystal what kind of recovery do they say well we're gonna learn from the fed on tomorrow on Wednesday what they see for the economy when they give us their new forecast but it's even harder than usual because this is such a situation we've never seen before analysts have developed a kind of shorthand alphabet shorthand to describe the passive possible scenarios the economy was chugging along nicely tell the pandemic cat then it took this abrupt downturn the optimistic scenario is that the economy will be shaped like a V. sharp down sharp up as people go back to work and shopping and stuff last Friday's jobs report that we added jobs in may has encouraged the optimists that includes the people in the White House and at least yesterday the stock market which is recovered as of yesterday all the games all the losses that occur it took us since the beginning of the year all right so so that's the the sunny scenario what are the others well one of them resembles the Nike swoosh we get a burst of euphoria as businesses open up and we go back to work but it's a slow us a long slow climb out of the ditch restaurants are only serving half as many people people are reluctant to get on airplanes I'm so that by that scenario it takes maybe years before we get back to the path we were on and there's an even less pleasant scenario the dreaded W. that's where things get better but we have surgeon covert cases and another round or shut downs later in the fall okay so we could have a V. that would be good if we could have a swish and not so great the W. please tell me that's the worst case scenario or does it possibly get worse I'm I'm afraid it's not the worst the worst case looks like an al the economy does grow but we never get back to the path we are on before the pandemic some laid off workers never find jobs lots of business go bankrupt malls and restaurants remain empty for a long time you know there's lots of vacancies business is to S. R. and D. so we have fewer innovations that sounds really bleak but that's what the economy look like for several years after the last recession two thousand and eight and two

Boeing Will Temporarily Stop Making Its 737 Max Jetliners
"Boeing is going to temporarily stop making. It's seven thirty seven Max airplanes. This decision comes nine months. After regulators around the world banned the jets from flying lying following two crashes that killed nearly three hundred and fifty people. Despite being grounded Boeing had continued cranking the planes out of its factory near Seattle anyway but that is going to a change next month Dave shaper covers aviation for. NPR He joins us from Chicago. Hi David Good Morning David. So why this decision from Boeing. And why now. Well you know Boeing. Hiring is facing a couple of how hard realities one is at the head of the FAA last week told Boeing CEO. Dennis Muilenburg in no uncertain terms to just stop predicting that the F. A. A. Approve the return of the Max to service imminently. It's it's not happening. And maybe it's an effort to show an independent streak that the agency After the agency was accused of being too cozy with the company but FAA administrator. Steve Addiction told Wallenberg F the FAA sets the timeline not bowing in agency safety. Experts will take all the time they need to get its analysis and testing of Boeing's fixes for the plane done right and won't rush the plane into a return to service. I'm hearing that means that the plane will likely remain grounded until at least February or March and it now appears Boeing's getting got the message. Well how much of it also might be the company just realizing how much money they were losing. They were continuing to make these planes and not selling them. Yeah that's the second hard reality Boeing is facing you. Could they're burning through cash. Etta significant rate according to some estimates commits about two billion dollars a month the company did slow production a little bit back in April reducing the number of planes produced from fifty two a month to forty two but now it has about four four hundred finished Max jets just sitting in storage at cannot deliver them to customers and cannot get final payment. Richard Lafayette is an aerospace industry analyst for the Teal Group. It's been really painful for Boeing. They've been maintaining production paying suppliers to build fifty two per month while they build at forty two per month and not bringing in revenue. This is very painful From a balance sheet perspective. You know it's important to note David. Just how big of a deal. This is for Boeing seven thirty-seven Max is the best selling commercial airline in airliner in the company's history it had five thousand orders for the planes before it was grounded and it's a very profitable was anyway a very profitable profitable part rob product in a huge part of the company's future tied to this plane. Okay painful for Boeing. What about the people who were there? David I mean. This plane is assembled at a plant in Renton Washington outside Seattle. Twelve thousand people work there. How are they going to be hit by this well? Boeing is saying that there will be no furloughs and no employee layoffs at at least at this time. statement announcing the decision to suspend production says the company plans to have affected workers. Continue either seven thirty-seven related worker. Be temporarily temporary assigned to other Boeing factories in the area but there still is a fair amount of anxiety in and around the plant. We had Ashley Gross of Member Station K.. And ask around about about the impact. She talked with Veronica Medina whose family owns a Mexican restaurant called Toreros it a strip mall called the landing right across the street. From the huge Boeing plant. Well obviously being right here at the landing. It's very significant. We get a lot of lunch. Crowds we get you know. Renton General Very dependent on Boeing's wellbeing Medina says even if the employees aren't laid off if they aren't going in and out of that factory across the street her business may suffer. Well obviously it's going to be a head I don't know how big but I think as a city as a business owner. I think we will feel let David. What about the economy? The economy is gonNA feel here. I mean you've got to have the supply chain that that feeds this big factory. There could be a lot of sectors. Let a companies that could be it could be affected. Yeah I mean there's a lot of companies that could feel this more deeply not so much in Seattle but in places like Wichita Kansas where supplier spirit aerosystems zero systems makes the fuselage and other parts 737 Max and scattered out just around the country. But around the world suppliers Boeing may do something to help. Soften the blow for them. But many of these companies may be forced to to furlough or layoff workers themselves. It's not clear how significant that impact may be N._p._R.'s. David Schaper in Chicago. Thanks

K. which looks very likely it's theoretically if it isn't in stone yet because it has to go to the house of lords of which will go later this week but it's pretty definite that will have an election December twelfth and does the hopefully this will come out with some kind of definitive answer however I think the odds are probably slim that will get anything definitive then we may have a repeat of what we have right now yeah I I remember Boris Johnson prime minister Johnson saying we are leaving October thirty first no matter what do or die yeah right do or die I'd rather be dead in a ditch right of I guess he hasn't found the ditch and I guess the word not not going to do he is you know kind of blaming parliament because in in reality did bring a deal the lab the withdrawal withdrawal agreement bill that was passed to the second stage which is really just something that allows parliament start looking at it the problem that parliament had was that the time period that there was a lot to discuss this bill was actually get day shorter than the time given to the wild animal and circus bill which covered nineteen animals in the U. K. that was given four days of parliamentary reading the web was given three and you know because of time constraints so people are very concerned thought of something of this momentous importance you don't need a little bit longer than you know how do we deal with Tigers in zoos what's the level of uncertainty of not only in the U. K. from a business standpoint but how is it impacting the rest of the world as well well I think in the European Union it's a little less so in that if you look at country clubs the Great Britain and did well the United Kingdom represents about twenty percent of trade flows of the new European Union it's people have become I think much more prepared for no deal breaks it now the last nine months for the European Union has been one where people have been preparing and they're generating kind of alternative plans certainly investments are going to be you know certainly in Ireland for example which will be probably the second most of affected country you can see that those I'm just back from there you can see that there is kind of a general kind of wait and see certain things are slowing a little bit northern Ireland's has seen complete nearly complete stop and overseas investment of because we the people don't know what's going on they've been a couple of large industry sort of actually closed short plus for example of closest last week which the big boss manufacture of in Europe so I think for them you know we're sync issues the car companies for example in Britain both Nissan and Toyota have signaled that they're waiting and seeing before they make any big investments and which is a signal that maybe they're gonna make this investment if brakes it goes the wrong way so I think that's pretty significant so you know when you look at certainly io growth of like GDP is kind of running in this kind of one point three one point five percent you know it's people are kind of just it's motoring along with a very low pace and certainly at a lesser pay some probably would be normally no they're also you know questions about the turf wars between the potential to in the US the U. and that kind of stuff as well floating around so this is more than just breaks up yeah I mean U. S. GDP came in at one point nine percent sort of too far away from the U. K. at all no and that's down you know when you think about like first quarter GDP was look closer three so you know we're seeing kind of I which may be part of the trade war as well you know turf wars generally nobody wins and we're saying I did we could six six we've seen a consistent decline in GDP this year for the last three consumer confidence numbers that came out each one was lower than the next I think you know there is a certain amount of apprehension globally by consumers you know when we look at stock market here it's you know all the main and say it's a done really well but they have with the exception the S. and P. make em up high earlier this week most of the insights haven't really changed much since July and I think there is this kind of general global kind of slowed sing we're on this morning with David Fowler is as VP of capital markets at associated bank our conversation focusing on world markets in

Other things are fast like xfinity x. by get get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make wifi simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply. There has been a lot of economic news over the past few days late last week. Central bankers got together for their annual meeting in jackson hole leaders of the wealthy g. Seven countries are meeting in france as we speak china and the u._s. Threatened to raise tariffs on each other through the weekend and president trump has confounded markets with his tweeting about trade and china david wessel of the hutchins center at the brookings institution is with us to talk about what this means for american workers and consumers good morning david good morning so david things are changing uh sometimes by the hour over the past few days president trump said this morning from the g. seven summit that china wants to make a deal john trade right so i think what we've seen over the last couple of days. Is this kind of on again off again. We're going to go to a trade war with china. We're trying to have a truce and today today. The chinese are making noises about wanting to resume talk so that's one thing is going on second things going on. The federal reserve is saying that it's trying. It's having a hard time. Protecting the economy from the damage of thinks the president's trade war is going to do but it's going to try by continuing to cut interest rates and then there's this slowdown on the world economy in europe as well as china and that's clearly of concern to the leaders of the g seven but there's been no consensus at their summit of how best to respond to that <hes> and there's little apparent will among the seven to work together to get the economy moving faster so it is very chaotic and yet and we've talked to you about this a lot by many indications the u._s. economy is still doing really well. So what is all of this net messy nece mean for the typical american family. Well you're right. The economy enemy is doing reasonably well so far despite some weakness in manufacturing some weakness in exports in some communities that are still been left behind. We're we're adding jobs but growth is slowing inflation seems to be under control. Gas prices are actually coming down but the price of some experts are going up. Interest rates are coming down and that's good for home buyers than people refinancing mortgages and for the u._s. Government that's good if you're trying to save money and a certificate of deposit money money market fund so we could keep going like this. I think we can all relax. The big worry is that this is basically as good as going to get and that's the signal we're getting from financial financial markets that there is trouble ahead yeah. The financial markets seemed to shudder every time president trump tweets or makes off handed comments after all all of this time with him in the office of president. Why are they still doing that. You know that's a great question. I think that the president has less impact when he attacks an individual individual company these days people have disregarded that but he's still the president of the united states. I you know it's often said that markson business abhor uncertainty but we're well well beyond uncertainty now. It's more like chaos and so i think people are having a hard time figuring out which way we're going. We're going to pull back from china or are we going to cut a deal. You know it's it's really interesting to me is usually a president going into an election year does everything he can to boost the economy but the president and he seems to recognize is the economies of political risk but so far he hasn't figured out what to do about it except beat up on the fed. Let me ask you know a lot of people have been talking about a recession on the horizon and it is almost it is impossible to predict recessions. I'm not gonna ask you to take a guess but let me ask you this. If we do have a recession david governments around the world and central banks around the world ready to respond no. I don't think they are. I think that <hes> interest rates already low. It's hard for central banks to cut them and government have a lot of debt so it's gonna find it hard to cut taxes and increased spending so i think that's one of the big things that we have to worry about now.

CBO Predicts Budget Deficit Will Reach Nearly $1 Trillion This Year
"One trillion dollars that is where the federal budget deficit will be next fiscal year according to the congressional budget office this growing gap between what the government government takes in and what it spends has been fueled by the 2017 tax cuts also the recent budget deal that increased domestic and military spending and also also the chilling economic effects of tariffs phillips waigel director of the congressional budget office delivered this news yesterday and he joins me this morning. Thanks for coming on the program. Thanks david good morning good morning so when you put out the statement yesterday you use the word challenging to describe our country's fiscal outlook. You said the federal debt is on an unsustainable ainable course. Tell me more about why you're so concerned we the the congressional budget office project what's going to happen with federal spending and federal revenue and the result is you sit as the deficit and that leads to debt accumulating over time at some point the debt burden on the united states will be difficult tickled to sustain the financing that it will be difficult the effects of that debt on financial markets and therefore on the economy will be undesirable right will have higher higher interest rates that affect consumption affect investment. That's what we mean by unsustainable. I mean the economy seems so strong right now. By a lot of measures i mean the the interest rates are low the stock market with some you know some movement and still resilient the jobs numbers despite a downward correction seem pretty strong. I mean is is the deficit that much of a worry for you know a generally strong economy. <hes> you know that's the challenge in the sense of addressing the fiscal situation that as you said today the economy is strong we have low unemployment and we have very strong wage. Growth and importantly wage growth is especially strong for people at the bottom of the wage distribution and interest rates are low so the there's no pressure to address the fiscal situation. This is a long term challenge. There's no simple solution. There's there's no quick solution but that's our job is to highlight what the challenges facing the nation including the long-term challenges are. I know there are economists to always make make the argument like stop worrying so much about the deficit and that that actually it can be like worrying can be inherently bad for the economy. I mean is there some truth to that and what your argument against that okay. No there absolutely is truth to that that when there's a financial crisis and recession that countries that respond with with a expansionary policy do better and it looks like the united states has the fiscal space to do that. Interest rates are low. The federal government is able to borrow oh so this is not an immediate crisis and a record yesterday does not say this is a crisis is a long term challenge so so if it's a long term challenge how much belt tightening should should the administration and lawmakers be considering in terms of getting to a place where you're comfortable that that the country is back on a good fiscal course <hes> so the congressional budget office supports the congress we provide the congress with analysis. We don't provide policy recommendations and that's our role. We say how much things cost how to address. It is is up to the members of congress and and the administration asian but in in terms of i know just your number crunching role i mean without any belt tightening is is there a risk that the situation could get much worse <hes> there. There is an instance. That's what we're trying to point out is that the fiscal changes involved are quite large that we will have to change spending or change revenues or some mixed the two by more than ten percent so imagine if it's all on the spending side federal government spending including everything all the transfers serves all the the discretionary spending everything would have to go down but a more than ten percent in on the revenue side is the same thing it'd be have to be more than a ten percent increase in the revenue that the federal government collects. It's a very large change. It doesn't have to be done all at once but that's the challenge of a fiscal adjustment. Yes meant an election. Cycle is not normally the time that that a president and lawmakers will make really hard decisions about belt-tightening but you seem to be saying that even if it had to wait like another year. Let's say for an election. It doesn't sound like it's urgent. As is that fair you know this is not an immediate crisis and again we see that in financial market interest rates are low in in fact the forecast that we just put out acknowledges that we marked down our projection of interest rates going forward and that has a large savings for for the federal government in terms of smaller interest payments even with a lower interest rates. The fiscal situation is still challenging. It's still unsustainable. Phillips waigel is director of the congressional budget office. <hes> thanks so much for your time. Now thank

Why the Fed Wants 2 Percent Inflation
"Morning. The Federal Reserve yesterday decided not to cut interest rates. That's a disappointment for President Trump who's been calling loudly for lower interest rates. But the fed did send a signal that it expects to cut rates later this year. Why? Well, fed fed chair, Jay Powell cited cross-currents in the economy. One of those cross-currents is this, the fed things prices are rising too slowly at once more inflation David Wessel is online with now. He's director of the Hutchins center at the Brookings Institution. David. Good morning. So we usually think David that the whole point of the Federal Reserve is to resist inflation. Why would it want more? Well, this is really a big change. The feds mandate is maximum sustainable employment and price stability. And it defines that as you said a two percent inflation, but it's been unable to get it up to that level for some time and it had been expecting inflation to pick up, but it hasn't it's only running about one point seven one point eight percent. This is causing concern at the fed, and Jay Powell, the fed chairman, talked about this press conference yesterday wages are rising as noted above, but not at a pace that would provide much of impetus to inflation. Moreover weaker global growth may continue to hold inflation down around the world. We are firmly committed to are symmetric two percent inflation objective. I think we haven't think of inflation is inherently bad. So why worry if it's running below the two percent target at one point seven point eight percent. Well, there are a few reasons for that one of them is that the fed believes that its credibility with the public, and the financial markets depends on delivering its on its objective of two percent flation, if it fails that it could concern that people might overreact, when something unusual happens say a weather related, spike in oil prices, or food prices, or big swing down prices or something second, too much inflation is a problem, but too little as a problem to in part because it brings the economy. To close uncomfortably close to what they call deflation, falling prices, and once that happened as we learned from Japan. The economy can really struggle, and particularly borrowers can have a hard time paying back their loans and third. If inflation gets too low than interest late gets awfully close to zero and that limits, the offense ability to cut interest rates, we have a recession, and that's very much on their mind at the moment. Yeah, it is. And let me ask you why the US economy has been growing for nearly ten years now. It's about to set a record for the longest expansion in recorded US history. Why aren't prices and wages rising faster? Why this concern about a recession? Well, I think there's concern about a recession for a number of reasons some signs of weakening in the economy and the prospect of the president's trade war on the inflation front. There's a lot of concern a lot of debate among communists about why inflation hasn't been behaving as expected there. Lots of explanations out there perhaps globalization is making it harder for anyone to raise prices. Or maybe it's technology know the fact that we can all shop around online makes it harder for businesses to raise prices, or maybe the economy isn't as close to full employment as we used to think when we got a low unemployment rate. So there's no need to raise wages. Or maybe it's connected to the waning cloud of unions and the power of employers, one thing, that's really interesting. And important is this is not only happening in the US inflation in Japan. And in the European euro-zone has also been stubbornly below the feds target that was a staggering amount of maybe maybe statement. I guess that's what you get when you talk economics.
