The Mind Financing The Future

"When powerful people use their advantage to engage in new involuntary transfers of wealth safety or freedom from those too weak to defend themselves. The winners are almost always forced to create an idealism as a cover for their siphoning in simpler terms. These idealisms are actually cover stories or bespoke fig leaves which almost exactly fit. The extraction are taking that they are tailored mask once. This is understood. We realized that to test this theory. Each wave of idealism would have to be matched to a highly specific effective confession for an injustice that pervaded the era in which it was found. This concept of idealism as disguising theft is of course an upsetting cognitive shift get is therefore naturally initially difficult to come to see the waves of idealism that characterized each era that we have lived through not as the best of our aspirations for a better world but rather as the photographic negative of the greed of our own ruling classes for example. The idealism of United States competitiveness was everywhere in the nineteen eighties and early to mid Nineteen Ninety S. At that time it seemed to be about the need for all Americans to pull together and get back into fighting shape as a country looking below the surface however it was not really about the need of managers owners and workers to pull together through shared austerity to reinvigorate American industry. Rather it was a false idealism. That instructed organized American Labor to give up hard won gains that were then not matched by comparable sacrifices from the other groups. Once the United States Labor had been sufficiently humbled in attenuated in its power by the Mid Nineteen Ninety S. The drumbeat of patriotic competitiveness gave way to the post National Davos idealism of a world without borders singing the praises of Financial Inclusion Trade Immigration and philanthropy with the Maudlin sediments of nine hundred eighty five. We are the world as its anthem. The purpose of the Post National Movement was not to include those overseas but instead to allow the wealthy of the industrialized world to break the bonds with their fellow citizens of the working class and to access cheaper labor. Pools abroad using far-flung supply chance likewise the idealism of so-called constructive engagement with governments like communist China's would be seen through this lens as the rationalization for ignoring issues of human rights and strategic risk in such a way as to benefit economically in the short-term selling out American interests in the long-term meanwhile back home in the states the techno Utopian perspective that arose dominate. The Bay area of California held. That information just wants to be free and that now. Transparency is king because privacy is dead perversely as you would expect in this theory. This hippie dippy sounding digital vision is exactly what ushered in the surveillance economy as the platforms became not windows but half silvered mirror through which the social media barons learned every intimate detail about their users. These startups turn techno behemoths. Turned the most intimate personal details of our private lives into their proprietary business. Data which was as far from free or transparent as one could possibly imagine the idealism of gender and identity to fits the exact pattern second wave feminism seemed to be about recognizing the intrinsic worth of women in the workforce but it may also be seen as an employer dream to push out the labor supply curve in such a way as to make the previous single breadwinner household require a second income just to keep pace the politics of identity which caught fire in the wake of the twenty ten. Colorado Senate upset are explained largely by economists. Pm Alana's theory. That identity is the cheapest substitute for the Labor Voting Block which demanded far more significant economic concessions. More bizarrely the strange media ritual of pointing the finger of Islamaphobia at anyone who dares ask about a mass murderer in which the killer triumphantly shouts of the hawk. Bar Emits. Bloody and sadistic mayhem may well be about protecting transfer. Payments from oil-rich monarchies while the official admonition to see the Niqab hit job burqa and clitoridectomy predominantly ethnic differences or symbols of female. Liberation is so absurd to go along way towards establishing the need for some theory. Is this to fill the space. The left-leaning idealism of making housing affordable for all that too many bad loans inflated the housing bubble while the right-leaning Ayn Rand Ian Idealism of self regulating markets practiced by Alan Greenspan allowed the banks to privatize gains while socializing the risks losses. The giving pledge to May well be an attempt to keep governments from clawing back unpaid taxes from carefully sheltered fortunes or establishing wealth and asset taxes in a period of radical inequality. In this sense it can be seen as something of a bargain if I promise to screw over my own children for charity. I hope that you will leave me alone and unquestioned to enjoy my vast and carefully sheltered wealth while I'm alive and as we have just seen with the Biden endorsements from Speaker Nancy Pelosi Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and former Senator Hillary Clinton. The metoo movement appears to be less about sexual assault and more about adding a tool for extra-judicial vigilantism which can be wielded selectively or kept sheath according to taste suffice it to say that. Hashtag believe all women has now given way to hash tag believe convenient women so you may ask. Why bring this up now? Well in my opinion what we need now is someone who is not part of any of the official idealisms. Of course that would have sounded quite weird in isolation if I had simply said that we need an anti Utopian to lead us. Wouldn't we want someone envision a dreamer doer hybrid two point the way? No we want someone who is not signed on for any of these horrible anti patriotic charades from either party. Someone who never believed in free trade free markets nationalism housing for all deregulation competitiveness etcetera etcetera. We need someone who is not closed with Jeffrey Epstein who does not possess significant financial relationships abroad. Additionally someone alienated by both the hardline pro-life pro-choice perspectives. Would be perfect for where most Americans are today since the time of Nixon. We've been in an era of predatory idealism with our best impulses used against us from both right and left. It is now time to get back to the hard work of cleaning up from two disastrous generations of failed business people politicians reporters in professors and perhaps most importantly we need to flush our dependence on near totalitarian communist China out of our system before it is too late

Hospitals Facing Coronavirus Are Running Out of Masks, Other Key Equipment

"Are dealing with very critical shortage. Shortage is not just a protective equipment. They're also facing another huge obstacle. There are simply not enough supplies like cotton swabs to conduct the Coruna virus tests themselves. Cnn's Drew Griffin reports. How did the United States end up in this position with a desperate shortage of corona virus tests a shortage of supplies to administer these tests even a shortage of protective equipment for medical workers? The US government knew the virus was coming back in the beginning of January on January eighth when the CDC published an emergency health advisory on a reported cluster of pneumonia of unknown origin in Wuhan China. Medical experts tells CNN. The trump administration failed to act at this critical time. What we see is the lack of preparation over the last two months has now put us in a terrible position in late. January the first. Us case of Corona virus was identified in Washington state but while Chinese officials began locking down the city of Wuhan. President trump was in Davos Switzerland telling the world that China's problem would not be the world's pandemic we have a totally under control trump barred most non US citizens from flights coming in from China but behind the scenes. Mistakes were already being made as the numbers climbed a thirty five thousand cases worldwide the CDC was creating its own corona virus tests a slower process that included sending the test of public health. Labs to make sure the test would work those public labs found out the test was flawed so they immediately reported that and CDC began an investigation very quickly but more and more labs as they were verifying this through. The coming days also found the same problem but three crucial weeks testing was at a near standstill while the CDC tried to fix the problem and the US health system was flying blind the virus spreading across America and US. Health officials had no way to test for it that kept us from having visibility on domestic transmission of the virus for weeks and weeks and weeks when the CDC's new test was finally fixed ready. There weren't enough to fill demand. This letter shows public health laboratories begging the FDA relaxed restrictions and allow them to create their own tests. It happened within days but in a race to contain it the virus was well ahead by March. Six there are a hundred thousand cases worldwide and more confusion from the administration. Anybody that wants to test can attest. When the president said these words across the country shortages were everywhere today the shortages of tests include just about everything needed to administer the test there are shortages on many pieces of it. Public health officials. Say it just didn't need to be this bad two years earlier. The White House made another potentially dangerous mistake laying aside the pandemic response unit within the National Security Council though the White House says the same rose exist just under different titles. The team President Obama had bolstered to combat global pandemics after. Abol outbreak was gone. Critics say that trump administration decision hampered efforts with corona virus. I think he made a slower and it made us more prone to mistakes. Jeremy Conine Dyke who used to run foreign disaster assistance for. Us aid says all the shortages from testing to swabs to masks can in part be traced back to that one decision. Beth Cameron who under Barack Obama ran the pandemic response unit says. There is no doubt that well we have gotten more out of this at the office had still been intact. I think absolutely the president who alternately said he didn't know anything about disbanding the pandemic team and also defended it now denies his corona virus. Responsible has been anything but perfect. We were very prepared The only thing we weren't prepared for was the The Media Drew Griffin CNN. Atlanta healthcare workers deal with a shortage of testing supplies. The FDA announced today it has approved a new corn corona virus tests that can deliver results in forty five minutes the company that manufactured the test says it will begin shipping out the task next week. I'm joined now by Dr Meghan Ranting. She's an emergency physician at lifespan which is affiliated with Brown University. Dr Anne. Thank you so much for joining us. How significant development is this new test? This new test is honestly a potential game changer for us. My emergency department like hospitals across the country are increasingly filled with patients with symptoms. That seem like corona virus. But we can't test so the best we can say is we think you have covert nineteen and we're either going to admit you to the hospital or send you home and tell you to self quarantine it will be so transformative to be able to actually test patients the same way that we do for flu or other illnesses to able to tell people if they actually need to quarantine and then to make decisions that can help us see equipment for the patients that we do have to hospitalize generally very very significant to the largest cities impacted by corona virus. Dr Ready we're talking New York in Los Angeles now say doctors should prioritize testing for healthcare workers and the severely ill besides that they won't test unless it would significantly change the course of treatment. Does this new strategy makes sense to you. So it's tough. We simply don't have enough tests so it's just like we're doing with masks and gowns. We have to conserve tests to that. We make sure that we have them for the very sickest people. It's not just New York in Los Angeles that are doing this. It's actually the practice it almost every hospital in almost every state across the country right now. It is far from ideal. It is not the way we should practice medicine. But just like we're using masks right now. We have to ration are testing which really incredible so if large numbers of people still aren't being tested. How do we know how bad the situation is? Because presumably there could be thousands hundreds of thousands maybe even more of a lot of people walking around with Corona virus absolutely. I suspect that in my state as in most other states the numbers that are being reported are orders of magnitude lower than the actual number of people who are infected. We are sending most patients home from the hospital or doctor's offices without tests. Were getting the test on those really sick patients but if you are I came into the hospital. We most likely would not get tested again unless we needed to be hospitalized so we are absolutely under counting the magnitude of this epidemic. Zoo interesting story here. A New York surgeon and mother of two whose husband is also a doctor made a plea for more protective equipment on twitter writing. This don't make an orphan out of our two toddlers so bottom line Dr Rini. How dire are these shortages at hospitals all around the country right now? It is truly dire. That is a perfect word for what's going on. Listen we're all used to using isolation gowns? There's something that we use to take care of variety of patients who come into the hospital but never I've been physician for almost twenty years now. I'm never have we been told to reuse this equipment? It is puts us at a huge risk potentially puts patients at risk. It is exhausting and terrifying. I mean the number of steps that we have to go through every time we go in and out of a room with putting on a mask putting on a face shield putting on a gown putting on gloves seeing the patient stepping back out and then doing each of those steps again in every time you take something off. You're in danger of contaminating yourself and then instead of just throwing out the mask or throwing out the face shield. We're being told clean off the mask. Clean off the shield and it in a paper bag and then put it back on again before you go see the next patient there these series of steps where we could get infected? Which then puts us at risk. I have well over a dozen colleagues across the country who have already tested positive for cove nineteen fellow emergency physicians and nurses. And it's simply because we do not have adequate access to protective equipment and we're being told to reuse the equipment that we do have. So how worried are you about your own wellbeing Dr Rini so I am concerned? I'm hopeful that I'm relatively young and healthy and I'll be okay but I've had discussions with my family about if and when I should separate from them. I have friends who have sent their kids to limit our houses. And I'm personally told my parents that I'm not going to see them again until this outbreak is over because I don't want to risk infecting them. I think it's a matter of time in less. We increase the number of masks and gowns available. It is a matter of time until most frontline healthcare workers are infected. We

Winter Is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be Stopped

"As we discussed before the break one belief that came from that House Intelligence Committee meeting is that Putin has if not actively aided the president's reelection schone preference for him today in response to the reports in that briefing. The White House told CNN that quote no one has been tougher on Russia than this administration. Joining me Gary Kasparov Former World Chess Champion. Russian for Democracy leader and Chairman of the Human Rights Foundation. He's also the author of the book. Winter is coming by Vladimir Putin in the enemies of the free world must be stopped so senior. Fbi officials saying today that Russia's goals essentially to to watch US tear ourselves apart. Do Sound absolutely accuracy. Absolutely spreading chaos. That was Putin's goal not only in America it's it's across Europe. You could seem equally supporting far far left. Making shoot center is decimated and again every country looks like a house divided. So that's what he's looking for because he's afraid that was American leadership The free world united against US aggression in in in Europe And it's especially stupid. Neither Putin trump to be reelected because putting himself standing next to trumpet Helsinki so he made no secret that he wanted to in two thousand sixteen and he made no secret that he wanted. He wanted to see once trump to be re-elected. Because it's still just for what trump does but it's probably more for what from doesn't do so he doesn't talk about rights doesn't what democracy he doesn't forced to the alliance's a Whiz with traditional America. Exactly that's makes no free will. It's interesting though the idea of the idea that you could be through disinformation or whatever it may be or election interference pushing trump but also pushing Bernie sanders. Your the idea of the center is the enemy that he's he basically trying to support the various sides of the spectrum. Coordinating the efforts. Because if you see this this what's happening now on conservative media it somewhat reflection. What's happened in two thousand six liberal media ignoring trump because many people believe that trump would be ideal opponent for Hillary bit? Now Fox just has a moratorium on summers. It's amazing it's self declared socialist and he's just not on the radar but at the same time if you followed from speeches like in Davos at welcoming four or his State of the Union while he brought wider. It's it's the President Obama's well so I so it's clearly shows that he's prepared he's competing shaping it against some there's so and of course. Putin beliefs share these beliefs trump. That sounds could be ideal candidate to go after. Don't forget some. Those made many statements supporting Soviet Union here in America. Imagine what send the sounders that time Mayor Saunders could have set in the Soviet Union bag there when he was just wanted to please his hosts and I have no doubt that if he said something incriminating Lattimore Putin hesitant files. I mean the statement that he made publicly about youth programs in the former here. But it's not the eating and drinking their union he could be more open about praising Soviet Union and I have no doubt that it's really just you know piled in the White House ready to go when or if it is remarkable that we now talk out of the White House having purges of officials who are not toeing the line again it is reminiscent of you know you think of the word purges you think. Soviet Union I hate telling you a said so many times. Now it's it's it's it's not just you know solve one problem at the time. I mean firing the head of these. These agency said legend. Let's understand at the hearings that Russia was interfering. It's not just simply no putting trump's man on top of the trump's lackey on top of organization but ascending message across the board the entire or exactly. You go gas me. That's going to happen. Same happened with Alexander Whitman. Everybody talked about him being fired. But it's more important. What trump did to his twin brother? He was removed. That's a message you if you do something. I will go off the family. That's that's that's that's from classical books you know that's reporter. Godfather dictatorships and mafia bosses do to protect their interests. They go off to the family. They're making less now reporting about today to of potentially anybody who they think is disloyal to be purged out it's weakening they would call the deep state but exactly because less people are just in powerful positions. More power is concentrated in hand in a circle and and it will be dictatorship himself. And let's imagine prompted has been doing it now in election year if he got forbid his reelected he will have no more constraints. And that's what Putin Putin is betting on its remember. Maria Vich the former American Basseterre to Ukraine. Who who was removed she talked about the State Department being hollowed out from the inside which is a terrifying idea. It's sort of you don't even notice it from the outside but inside it's been record number of positions in these in the state in in defense in many other ages intelligence agencies that are not being field because again less people are just miss positions. More Powell concentrated in the hands of children view. The Trump nominated Gary Kasparov appreciative. Thank you very much

Sustainable Travel: The Hard Truth with Lucy Siegle

"Twenty nineteen year in which the travel industry found itself in the spotlight over its role in contributing to climate change tourists now more aware than ever before the environmental cost of air travel. Tourism contributes around five percent of greenhouse gases according to the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership at travel alone contributes to two point five percent of global emissions and these predictions suggest that these stats likely to triple by twenty fifty. If important changes are not maids however the tourism industry is responding in many diverse ways. For example the Guardian Travel Section now primarily focuses on destinations. That can be reached without the use of planes. Easyjet will carbon offset all flights by the end of twenty twenty initiatives such as green tourism? Have seen a leap in membership and provide hoteliers with a green check meter to promote more responsible tourism practices and global travel as a certainly more environmentally aware. Now environmental issues. I have to admit their uncomfortable truths for us in the travel industry so today we're taking the bull by the horns as it were and we're asking. Chiyo hey to tell us just how bad it is and also what we can do about it so environment environmental impact on travel. I think it's very good but the travel industry is trying to tackle this head on but I think we've also got some uncomfortable truths to face and in facing those uncomfortable truths. Hopefully we can make some headway into doing some stuff about it. But how in your opinion how? How bad is the travel industry for the world? How bad is the travel industry? Well if you look at some who just start with the elephant in the room so we look aviation you can say that aviation has a small part of the climate change pie in the comes in four percent. Something like that four percent. You might say well you know. In fact I've heard it said well PSA quivalent to say the fashion industry or something like that but we're in a very serious situation. Everyone's mentioned this to you. We all have to decarbonised really rapidly. So it doesn't matter. What your slice of the Pie is he needs to be getting it to zero. Unfortunately and aviation is one of the ones that's increasing and increasing exponentially so we could be seeing like a quarter of the world's carbon budget used by aviation in the very near future and that's not acceptable. Because you look at the amount of people that fly so I think in the UK. It's something like fifteen percent of the population tastes seventy five percent of the flights. Something like that. Probably most of them by me mainly you. Yes exactly so. It's not fair. Is it that all of that. Carbon budget should be used in that way so that that is the really really big existential and the media issue for the travel and tourism industry is that it's predicated on flights which have become cheaper and all the rest of it and then you get into a very interesting territory about offsetting and where we are now. How much needs to help and is by so? You really can't get very far. Ironically when we're talking about travel without coming across a very difficult brick wall I know this is the lady bird version of environmental issues but reminded y need to decarbonised. Oh so yeah so we are in. The era of climate crisis is not the only crisis that's affecting the bias fairs. We call the planet We also in the age of extinction. loss say rapid extinction loss of species. And we've got lots of different pressures. So the oceans absorbed ninety percent of of heat and a report came out a couple of weeks ago so that was in January February and it was irreputable evidence that the planet is is is warming because you can test the atmosphere will time. There's lots of different factors which might account for the heating when it comes to the oceans that is a controlled experiment ladies and gentlemen and we had the hottest oceans on record since records began and it is equivalent to exploding thousands of Hiroshima bombs in the ocean. That's the amount of energy and he is now in the ocean and this affects all sorts of things so for people in the UK who only really like one sort of fish which is called it means that if the oceans warm around the UK the COD will swim off to colder climes. And they all go to the Baltic states and we can't get any cards so it has a knock-on effects like that but it is proof incontrovertible evidence that the world is warming and a warming world brings with it a lot of problems including higher incidences of diseases oceans rising icecaps melting fires that burn hotter and are more widespread as we've seen in Australia etc etc etc so Greta Thambo says this so I'm GonNa say it but but if you were saying it I by the way she seems to have a wide for you have a great plot has exploded but you you were saying say funny because it's almost anniversary of me-meeting Greta Thornburg in Davos upper mountain and I said to my friend. This is absolutely legendary this point while. I don't think she's going to catch them did you. My friend resigned. I don't know I think she might anyway like two days later. Thirty two thousand kids marched in Belgium for Friday's for the future though is already regretting. Why statement and she just seems so as literally. Mitch Leigh Small. Once more young men conscious actually small. She's actually small and she's very softly spoken very unassuming and yeah. I mean what a presence will an accident force and I really care myself. I squandered that did you. Did you feel something around are no? That sounds ridiculous but people that I've got that power to to have an impact on so many people often do when they walk into the room. Yeah think so. I think I was just being very defensive about what this kid you know. I've been doing this for. Aj's join the queue. Hello but I also now you'll court so you were just about to court for a minute. Yes she's incredibly powerful force and she. I remember her face and her being rather than another thing. That's quite disarming if you spend time around High Profile people with this charisma that quite jazz Hans. She's not just handsome toll so I think I just took a while to understand what she was bringing But she's very very good and what I was going to save it. She says a lot of people. Ask Me and when is the climate crisis going to be over? It's not a moment. It is an era. This is the reality so once you accept that of the reality the climate era. What are you going to do about it? But we can't we can't. We're not GONNA stop traveling. People are not going to stop traveling for fun for work. The world is a very a much smaller place. You might say well people might have to but look what's happened this week. The Corona virus so. This plane's not taking off from China China is basically closed. Which is so. They'll be kind of carbon win for that in a way because they'll be some fear emissions. We're in a numbers game now. So you go to you. Go to look at these things but you know there's an example very very recently where we might say. We're not going to travel. But actually you're not gonNA travel so there's a number scenarios that might happen where you went to travel so what's difficult. The moment is that it's just all on us making the decision not to travel and you may have children who are very inspired by Greta. You might be parents. Have I inspired by Greta? Making a decision to take a train journey instead of Dumping on the plane and these are really interesting. Personal kind of points of maneuver and negotiation at the moment within families and stuff like that and it will be very interesting to see how the travel industry which. I'm sure I shouldn't talk about as if it's a big homogenized thing 'cause I know it's very nuanced different parts of it but they've got to kind of surf this weird moment with us really and we have got to come up with more inventive products. We've got to come up with more different ways of doing things we've got to look at some tough

Trump rule could lead to big Medicaid cuts, governors warn

"Tell folks what has happened in terms of Medicaid in particular. I guess let's start way the way you did. What are the proposed cuts to Medicare that the trump administration the station has been talking about the proposed cuts to Medicare You know I think it started with their rollout of increased privatization of Medicare with increasing Medicare advantage. uh-huh Plans Kober last year in the lakes and Florida Trump you know reported in Vanity Fair that he said it would be fun. Second Term Project to cut Medicare and then in a couple of weeks ago now in Davos Switzerland he was talking. NCNB CNBC and he said Yesterday the fact that would be on the table cutting cutting Medicare in those social security and he said that would be the easiest thing to do very strange choice of words. So that's kind of the Medicare and that's what I started with. That's why I was in Des Moines that day with the committee to protect Medicare talking about these possible Medicare cuts with you know doctors from Iowa that join me for a press conference One Press When one member of the press showed up at that press conference now you know a little bit more of the presses is listening to the line that we're calling out at my committee about these proposed cuts it's And then you know because of the news of the day. Last Thursday was Davis encounter occurred in that was the day that Seema Verma the cms administrator for trump mm rolled out these Block grant Waiver proposal. That you know everyone I can see. That is talking about this. In an honest this way tells us this will cut folks from Medicaid. Okay and so tell us. CMS The centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services when they roll out this proposal are they actually just basically introducing. They're they're basically announcing that you can you as a state Can apply for a waiver. Is that right right. Apply for a waiver. Currently Medicaid is funded by the federal government on a kind of a per person per need basis. So you know. For instance when there's a recession and more people lose jobs and more people qualify for Medicaid. The federal share of spending on healthcare for those folks will go up because of course they need that you know people with diabetes if they have a job or they lose their jobs to no fault of their own still. Have they still need three hundred dollars a month insulin slim so with block grant States could say listen Why don't you just give us a lump sum of money? And then let us in the where he used was innovate let us innovate. Ah figure out how to cover anyone cover everyone but you know if the needs go up in our state. We still get that that pot of money that you're giving us it doesn't change and yet our needs go up so more people lose out the other thing they can do is choose to cut certain services they can you know cut certain drugs that are that are. Currently they covered up a prescription drug benefit under Medicaid. So I mean I mean it is just cut. There's no way around it. And there's no way that pence didn't understand that Seema. Burma used to be his Medicaid Administrator in the state of Indiana when he was governor there so this has been a conservative dream for for ages decades thirty years. They've been trying Graham. They've been trying to block grant and and so. There's there's like you say there's multiple problems that come with the block. Granting one is that it does not act as that economic stabiliser in other words doesn't doesn't Basically expand as the the need gets greater in crises. It also does not a increase along with the cost of medicine and And like you say the states can get sort of clever because the federal government has basically said I mean this is the difference between just sort of you know me me giving ten bucks to my kid and saying you know do whatever you want with it as opposed to making sure that she spends it on you know not on on junk food or whatever it is and and she can then go out and basically spend five bucks on the. I want to keep this metaphor too much but the idea is that they can use this money in other ways that I really don't have anything to do with providing health insurance for people right and my governor is Governor Gretchen. Whitmer who gave you know. I thought an amazing response to the state of the Union last night and I was there and we talked beforehand. And she's she helped. Uh sure in expanded Medicaid under the affordable care act when she was the minority leader of the State Senate here in Michigan and got a Republican governor to expand Medicaid. And we've had you know. Nearly three three quarters of million folks in Michigan Benefit from that Their study I think Carter. Kaiser family reported recently specifically Michigan showing the economic economic benefits of expanded Medicaid. The fear was that the federal government was going to give them a hundred percent in the first year and then scaled back to I think ninety percent of eventually by next year and the reality is even though the federal share has scaled back because people are healthier because they can afford treating their chronic illnesses. They can work more they. The actual tax base has increased. I think thirty thousand jobs in Michigan created directly resulted expanded Medicaid. So I you know this is. It just doesn't make sense to me that they try and and I think that's why he dodged the question and tried to revert back to things he did. And and then eventually just said agree to disagree because He knows what it is they. They held him what it is and they know if they say what it is. People won't like it you know. It's an election year. They're trying to get reelected so they just say whatever they want they lie will and state of the Union almost solely healthcare allies again about every other aspect of healthcare. And you know I think they just say what they want they get away with it. He just wasn't expecting to meet up with a guy in tyner who you know. I mean again. I don't know this issue like a policy. Wonk I mean I just I have a biology degree in a medical degree and I work clinically as a doc but I read you know and I and I try to learn as much as I can and so you know with my limited understanding of these policies he just. He wasn't ready for that one briefed them known gave them talking points. And I think that's. That's that's what we saw unfold. Yeah he did look like a deer in the headlights and we did try to dance around it quite a bit. You were pretty easy. Road brought in on them pretty quickly I think as he tried to sort of pretend like he didn't understand what you said the first thing. It just didn't that first exchange where you said. You're going to get cuts and Medicaid. 'cause I don't think we're GONNA do cuts in Medicare and so we'll give us. I mean So you know firsthand. The implications of this expanded Medicaid and and and I WANNA get into that as just your experiences as as an emergency doctor but I also get the sense. You're on this You're you're you're you're executive director of this committee you're in Iowa so you're aware at at least some of the you know the broader politics involved in this. Where would you anticipate what states or at least you know if not specific ones than the profile of the states eight? That are going to be applying for this waiver. I mean presumably the thirteen states. Now that did not expand Medicaid under the affordable. Care Act. I would imagine would be a prime targets or prime applicants to get this waiver. Because they're going to continue you. Say we're going to expand medicaid. They certainly are interested in dismantling it as much as they can right. I think that and I think you know anywhere that there is a Republican And I guess I have to. I don't know the nuances of the directive if it's if it's an executive decision at the state level or if it requires you know something passing through their houses so we have enough house majority Republican state legislatures plus governorships. In this country that I I mean I think that would be the profile. You know certainly because those will be the places where you know folks are more likely to be in charge that share vice president pence views on you know on Medicaid in general in a and and whether or not we should be helping out poor people when it comes to healthcare That that is that's the fear now. And why should we in Michigan you you know. Why should we in Michigan? Have a different set of. I mean the whole healthcare system. So Patchwork in Hodgepodge if you WANNA call it a system a series of systems. But it's so patrick work anyways I mean I guess why should this be any different. Let's let certain states do one thing and others do the other. And if you just happen to be born in Michigan versus Alabama. Well you know good on you right Well there's so much in our society today that's determined that way it's all just a coin toss and met. I guess maybe a bunch of coins get tossed in the air. What now? There's a vote tomorrow in the house. I Don I imagine you're familiar with it. And what the what the vote is is it's under the The CRA which has been used in the past to see the Congressional Review Act. It's been used in the past undo executive the actions that have been done within a certain timeframe and the Republicans did this with a bunch of executive actions by Obama and then once they do that once they pass that to reinstitute any type of rule like that Congress has to has to authorize it with a two thirds vote right so this is like this is a this is a real this is a sledgehammer as it were and they're going to. They're going to vote on this in the house and they will probably pass yes it which would not allow the president to block grant but then it goes to the Senate and the Republicans are sure to shoot it down. How do you think this plays as has a An issue in the fall when you have a half dozen or so Republican senators running in sort of purple states on their refuse their essential like voting to allow for cuts and Medicaid right. Yeah and I and I kind of anxious to see what folks looks like Like Collins I mean she seems the only one in the purple state that I think might make along with this I think you know tell us and and MC sally the and who is a gardener I think is already toast You know maybe Joni Ernst I don't know Yeah I mean I think at least I mean the thing is having having gone record. I mean that's That's I think that's all that's what we're trying to do as a committee. I mean what we're what we're rolling out over. The next. Several months is is an accountability campaign.

Proposed federal law seeks to limit skyrocketing salaries of college coaches

"Well anyway. I I call one of your stories. He's just week. We're talking about salaries and congress trying to put a cap on things and you. Did I think a an amazing. I don't know how you doug all this up. A deep dive live into the evolution of coaching salaries. Take us through that process. Yeah I one of the one of the most interesting thing about college. Football is how in twenty twenty I guess in our in our myopic nature point twenty we think that we all have these like little arguments novel discussion Russia. We've been doing this thing for one hundred fifty years at this point in time there are quite a bit of things that just are not new and some of that is complaining about too many bowl games but another one of those things is talking about how coaching salaries are way too high. I mean it's it's it has quite literally almost almost always been like this. I mean Amos Alonzo Stagg at Chicago making six thousand dollars in eighteen eighteen ninety two now I went back and use the consumer price report and price some of these salaries out in you know twenty eighteen at the time buying power. And you know. That's six thousand dollars. Amazon does stag was making then was worth like a hundred and sixty thousand dollars back in eighteen. Ninety two there has always been this separation between what highly paid college. Football coaches made Versus what the Common Man Colombian mix. You know I'll I'll bring it to your audience and hit them home like bear Bryant when he's doing. Brian show that that famous Sunday highlight show That that became formative so formative for a lot of Alabama fans. He wasn't doing that just out of the good report he was because he was getting paid there Bryan getting in pay. That's why I thought he. I thought you said he was a benevolent. So I believe you remember this because you weren't born but he also had to Eat the potato chips and drink cocoa which by the way had bourbon in it. Yes absolutely I mean like bear. Bryant was Bear Bryant was cheering the back right now. Yeah so I find it amazing we we. We had a professor on earlier who who was very much a part of the Donna? Shalala Team Wanting to limit coaching Ching salaries so When did they make the big turn? When did they start going? I mean as as some of the critics say out of control to me. It really doesn't matter what any of these guys make but TAKE A. When was the big turn? I think they really and truly exploded in the nineteen eighties because in the nineteen eighties. That's when that Supreme Court hate happened with like Georgia Oklahoma and you know they got. TV rights You know they divorced the TV rights from the NCAA and schools colleges then became able to go. She ate television rights As entertaining defended themselves. Obviously than we get into the CFO era and BCS. And what we have now where the SEC. Disperse what was it. Six hundred and fifty some odd the million dollars yesterday give or take a few million yeah To all fourteen member schools. I mean look. The bedrock of this cannot be overstated. The bedrock bedrock of this is this when you as an Athletic Department at Florida Alabama at Lsu is Florida state when you do not have to pay your labor force when you do not have to compensate you or athletes. That money has to go somewhere now. That money goes to beyond coaching salaries. I mean that's the facilities race that is everything. Everything that makes these college will programs at opulent as they can be obviously a really really big part of the PIE now. Is Coaching salaries. Now Coaching coaching salaries the early eighties. That's stuff starts to get reported. That's my really really starts coming into Coming into the sport in a way that it had really really before that By the time you get through the mid nineties Florida's paying Steve Spurrier the one of the first billion dollar contracts so that he doesn't jump to the NFL at that time honestly the NFL itself explodes. You've got that competition. So it's it's the competition that that spurs in any industry the street Salaries and money and will lose those things but the early eighties. I think is where we can really pinpoint when college athletics kind of started growing up from a from a fiscal standpoint talking to Richard Johnson from a better society in now we all know what is going on. I'm interested where were you. Were you sit on this. Because the the so called Donna. Shalala proposal We heard Professor Ridpath on this would would curtail a lot of things I find find. It somewhat amusing chancellors and presidents at Private Schools More so than public schools making. I'm five six million dollars a year We have an offensive and defensive coordinator is making major seven figure salaries I know is a highly paid journalists. Where we're we're are you on what Shola is is attempting to to do at least down one lane in Congress right. I think you have a good point. the the facilities boom and the salary boom of coaches collect directors and the things that we coach Sports Mirror. That of what we see on the institutional side at a lot of these verses and I think that is one thing thing that really gets lost you know like you said like g Foreign President of like West Virginia. Like these guys make guys and girls make six figures seven figures. There is a lot of money in higher education in the United States at the highest levels. college athletics is it is not an outlander But like studies have shown time and time again going back thirty forty fifty years that when your football all team is good when your basketball team is good It becomes you know they always say that is the front porch of the university. Admissions skyrocket when athletics. Do well and that is. Why a lot of these University of course than anything else I think? Put Up with and we'll pay out the nose for Nick Sabin or Jim Harbaugh or a Davos. We or whatever I think the dirty secret is is the weight from Ro a lot of these endowments in some of these very popular. Schools would shrink a lot more than people wanNA realize. No I mean just look around. I mean boone pickens. She died recently. I mean the the amount of money that he put into Oklahoma state and I don't I don't mean to disparage Oklahoma state in stillwater Oklahoma. Oh my been there. And if you haven't Richard Make sure that you put that on your bucket list. Wouldn't it wouldn't have had that type of money And and a lot of these Jerry Jones. He's given to the University of Arkansas. You can go down the list And I mean and it's because of one thing we're trying to win in in in college football or basketball depending on on on where you live and what part of the country you're in. Yeah absolutely I saw a stew. MANDL's works in the for pretty athletic. He He has a college pat column and somebody asked him Ten million dollars. What would you do with it to build a staff? And I look the question and I was like look man if you WANNA compete with Alabama Lsu Clemson Oklahoma Ohio state. You need more your salary. You Pool has to be bigger than ten million dollars. I mean on on its face. You'RE GONNA have to pay a coach at that level. Five five and a half six six billion dollars. You'RE GONNA have to pay your coordinators eight hundred nine hundred thousand dollars because Dave Aranda was was pulling such a salaried Lsu a few atmosphere necessarily because he was such town defensive coordinator which he is but it was because one opinions coordinator so that the only job job they'll leave for is a G. Five or or power five kids coaching job. It's got bulletproof coordinators. I WANNA lose them. I don't want to take collateral. If they leave me they gotta take step up so okay. You're paying both your coordinators Like one point eight billion dollars between the two. That's like eight million dollars. Just gone to the head coach in coordinators. Now you're in another like five million dollars higher director staff your eight assistant coaches which is all right. That's your ten assistant coaches You want to compete with Georgia Alabama. All right we'll have a party because you have to fill out the rest of those staffs with analysts. We assist tense You know you gotTa have a staff of three saw guys kind of the shadow. Coaching staff that that Alabama kind of those famous or infamous. No matter how how are depending on which by the fence you went on but You know it takes money to keep up with the Joneses and it takes a lot of line really want we national championship. Always great to have you on Richard other than chicken. What's the what's the second most favorite food that you'll be serving the super bowl party Sunday lady a friend is bringing some guacamole? She'll be homemade guacamole. I'm not a big block fan but you know you know how this you gotta try say like it. So that'll that'll it'll be my My side dish. I cannot wait I if I'm in the neighborhood I'll just drop Bil- bring some bring bring a some some fruit cake leftover from Christmas. I couldn't give away Gringa fruitcake. Brings some cold ones man.

You did on dedicated just to his relationship with G.

He died doing what he loved. The most which is being an easing. Yep and if you gotta go let it be doing something you love with the people that you love and the fact that he was with his daughter being a coach and a father other supporting her supporting her friends. Yeah exactly and I have to say To all the amazing black fathers out there any amazing father's period. Yeah you know we see you. Thank you and this conversation.

It's been a rough week very sad Um as you know and as our listeners know we're all dealing with the sudden passing of the Great Kobe Bryant and and his daughter plus seven other passengers that died in a helicopter crash on Sunday But as you and I we've been deep the weeds covering it And the thing that I thought was most beautiful and this is not about social following social traffic. You did a story just on on the fact that when it was confirmed that his daughter was in the playing with him and they're behind and their bonds. And everyone's you know start talking about that and we sorry thinking like we've got to talk to a dad how they feel dad of daughters and how they feel about that and last night we would like Ritu Dennis the essence ventures founder and chair.

I had the pleasure of getting to know some of your daughters here. They have their own podcast. Girls United shout out there with a walk into the shower at. We'll thank you thanks for. Thanks for thinking man inviting me me. You know it's Having having daughters In the world that we live in and the challenges that we go through the community but more specifically the challenges at Women go through in this society and raising women to not be afraid of what they face to not to not feel overwhelmed by what they faced. Raced to to actually be empowered by what they face and to and to be able to Look beyond the challenge in C- Eh See how you conquer that challenge has been has been an incredible motivating factor for me in my life in the things that I do. And so The Girl Dad thing Israel Israel that how did you feel. Oh when you heard this news. We're you you know what happened when I heard this news I was actually on a plane. ooh Move I was on a plane back from From Davos and and all. I wanted to do to hug my daughters. All I wanted to do was to hug them. And as soon as I got off the plane I made a beeline aligned to them. And that's that's what I did and And in that moment All the emotions emotions go through you right and all the emotions around what they mean to you what you mean to them but then also so what you must fight together and how and how much stronger you are because you have daughters and how much stronger they are. Because they they have a father that is focused on them overcoming and becoming in conquering and celebrating with them. I'm and living with them. And and seeing them go from infants to now young women and how they flourish in how they grow and the things that they're doing all all of that comes through you and there's there's nothing there's no greater satisfaction in life I can tell you like Kobe You know what's been surfacing now as the clip with the ESPN reporter L.. Dunkin where she asked him wants to. Do you ever want boys so so. Did you ever want boys. You know that I haven't seen that clip but I can tell you I've never wanted for a boy MHM Right I've never I've never wanted for a boy. I think that when you're when you're when you're a I have a sister right. And so you know I thought I would have a a son and a daughter right And then had my first daughter and then I had my second daughter and then had my third daughter and then I had my fourth daughter and I can tell you that there was never a time where where I thought. I hope. This time is a boy or I wish it was a boy or or any of those things right. And there's just something thing when you and I I mean I've never had a son so I don't know but there was something really magical each time. I held one of those babies in my hand. Right right when those young young girls in my hand one of those baby girls in my hand and all the responsibility that I felt right and all the all the commitment commitment that I felt in all the drive that I felt another motivation that I felt because I knew that I'd have partners throughout life in them and that they would have a partner in me throughout life and and that has just driven relationship which is just an amazing? I mean I I I think I have the greatest daughters on the planet as does every other but their minds claiming I think I have the greatest daughters on the planet.

Trump Talks National Populism in Davos, Switzerland

"Addressing the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland this week president trump double down on his guiding principle of national populism nations rather than global architectures are best placed to sub human interest trump said many others at the summit disagree they say the concerns such as climate change can only be addressed by global action an editor I should clarify that that video with the music was a White House but you're not not mine but do you see how do you see double sometimes of the truck nationalist populism buses this sort of more global stock well New York times one of the headlines was the Davos solar guards flocked to trump calling and the cold and the Davos man me two years ago he I think he was there and he was you know widely disdained he seemed to come across like a bit of an ignorant fool in their eyes well now they like the economy they like power they think he might be reelected and so again just as the impeachment trial is all about raw power so is Davos and so the president knows how to play that game he invited a number of the Davos elitist to his signing of the reason outside of the of the trade agreement with China and he's kind of loving the fact that the markets are doing well and says you know give my best to Jamie diamond but there's a big cleavage there in terms of of climate in particular Jim do you have how serious do you think president trump is about shaping a legacy narrative all of you know a return to the nation state on on how much of this is trumps effort to mobilize a domestic base that that likes that idea I mean if you go back in and watch interviews with Donald Trump the date back to the nineteen eighties the most consistent theme of his political flight which is involved in a in a lot of different ways in other areas is the idea that the United States is being screwed over taken advantage of by foreign countries by foreign governments and that there needed to be some powerful figure elected who would put a stop to that and trump's election coincided with the trend of of national populism throughout the western world to varying degrees different political parties having different degrees of success of pushing that message and and I think the visors and aids close to trump of tried to own that political instincts that basic instinct and connect it to an over arching populist philosophy and so I think there is an element of of one is a legacy and show market is quite strong that sentence sounded as from the Democratic Left and very opposed to free trade is skeptical of some of this globalist architecture is actually quite close to president trump well he certainly is and I think his message of it populism is is not a ideologically specific term it's a term that could arise on the ideological left as it has on the ideological right now I think that's why you seem sustenance I was senator Sanders and look I I think it's not just the doors in the Midwest I think if you talk about African Americans in the south who have seen global legislation impact their communities a loss of jobs as manufacturers have either moved or have decided to hire a cheaper labor south of the border and so this is an issue that I regardless of race impact people's so I think Sanders message of social economics which is very similar to president trump's early on it

"davos" Discussed on Squawk Pod

"Look everybody who Knows me personally like you know. Said I've been a card carrying progressive my whole life. My family is progressive. I have a degree in what amounts to progressive thought. Obviously there are many things I would do differently. Apparently and I've I've never stopped being critical this administration. I'm not planning to vote for this administration. Dr Things I'd do differently. The core issue though is who decides and let me to the people who want to reduce the complexity it's commonly known that are softwares Houston operational context at work. Do you really think the war fighter is going to trust a software company that pulls the plug because something becomes controversial with their life. Currently when you're a warfighter your life depends on your software. They will never trust you if you pull the plug just because you're unpopular decisions about which government allies to work with if if they are in the West defined and if the rule of law has a check and balance system system we work within the context of law. If if it's other countries they have to either be allied with America or we give them a special way of deciding what we're GONNA do concrete. If you're Germany France America Sweden Japan. It's a very quick process. If you're a country say that's not one of them. We want to know what are leading the software. How're you doing it? And we made it very clear. Their checks and balance. I'll make it more complicated. Saudi Arabia clearly Considered an ally of this country. The administration's made that very very clear and yet just over the past forty eight hours. There's been a huge question about whether the leader of that country was using malware in Jeff bezos closes. Well first of all we. We've always made the decision not to mean volcan intrusive software so offensive attacks inside in the cyber kindness precisely this contest because the cyber contest intrusive infiltrations are are are are questionable often and a done almost ubiquitously But we in that if we were involved in that country in in the things that this would be a very serious cussin' it happens. We're not involved. And so it's not a serious discussion but we we do. We do talk very seriously and with consequences just with our non western ally. It's plausible that he that he sent my where I don't I don't I don't know the details. I do know that it's plausible. That a nation mistake can hack your phone fairly quickly. Let me ask you a separate question. You have reportedly taken over project Nathan from from Google which was a very controversial program in Silicon Valley. Well I can't discuss the specifics of a classified program but I can't say if this were true I'd be very proud and I I have to say now. Many people have criticized Google. My version of it is a military military. I will determine in our lives the lives of your kid this zero something the country with the most important. Ai Most powerful way. I will determine the rules that country should be either either us or a Western country. That doesn't mean you're anti our adversaries it just means would you rather have them with the equivalent of tech nuclear arms or US if the company decides it's not to work with the US government. On this I think we all need to understand why they need to guarantee. They're not implicitly. Or tacitly transmitting on this program. AM will quite literally determine who is standing here and what they're saying in five years and were we to be involved with. It would be enormously proud when you look at the capabilities of China and what they're doing technologically relative to where we are and where you are and you see them. What is the thing? If America cricket brings IT'S A game and software. What is America? The world's best at what are we so good at that it scares everybody. What is it? What is the community that there is their second and on in the world software so if we bring our game we will win if we bring our D. plus game because most people in the valley live on an island where this seems like a questionable the project they will win our game winds are seeking leases? We've had conversations about privacy over the years There is a new debate about apples And whether that phone should be opened in the context of terrorism pretty stint well first of all the government we should. I believe that the government should decide things in in with the checks and Balances Volvo Court. Government needs to provide clear rules tech companies. Need to obey those rules. If there's a problem with those rules we should go to court and I think all companies should should basically part of the problem is we need a clear codex of what you're allowed to do. Under what context when data can be encrypted and when it shouldn't I think we're going to reach a consensus around this but quite we frankly partly for the wrong reason and the consumer Internet companies. This is not apple but the other ones have basically decided. We're living on an island and the island is so far removed removed from what's called the United States in every way culturally linguistically and normative ways that we'd rather be regulated as a foreign island then be part of the United States proper and and that's the core problem you are part of the United States. Proper regulation is part of the problem. Part of the problem is there are you are part of a larger hole that major company possible that just protecting you against tariffs. That's protecting you against regulation that is allowing you to build your company. You cannot create an island called Palo Alto island that is only only subject to regulation much like a can't system which silicon valley really wants. Is the Canton Palo Alto. We don't have a tunnel system in America. We've United States of America now at the United States canton one of which is Paolo Alto. That must change. Let me pivot real quick. There has been so much speculation for so many years right here in Davos elsewhere about when your company may go public. How do you think about it now especially in the context of the success or failures of some of the the? IPO's abuse took place over the last year. Well what I can tell you is in the past we talked about it externally and internally we said look we're going to defer now we've told the company we are going to IPO and we are preparing internally IPO. I think we will. We will do very well in that context and when you look at some of the other offerings. Well they're just saying you can basically look at this last ten years as a way of looking at tech is that it was a bull market the way we look at it. Look at it for the last ten years is it's a bull market for monopolistic listed companies in a bear market. For everyone else if you look at it that way. You don't finance growth with the this sweet vapors of of foreign venture funds you. Focus on broke with high-quality revenue. That's only done for the last ten years we've told people internally that IPO will happen and you'll see the results take. They are doing next coming up on todd and two three four five six seven hundred ten really know all right the team behind this week's CNBC coverage of Davos twenty twenty. We'll be right back. Welcome back to Squawk Todd Our TV show squawk box has been covering the Davos World Economic Forum for years. My first sure I think was two thousand and six before you know show. No that's right you were here when did when did the show. We came here in two thousand fourteen. I think was our first year as long as being here. This is so seven years. CNBC on the whole a little longer than that. But I would say about twenty years. We've been covering. We have teams here from Europe and Asia as well as from our partnerships in Italy in the Middle East in South Africa but predominantly our coverage is driven by our US team With our squawk box crew with our eyes and all of that coverage would not be possible without our tireless expert. Stage crew. Working on the technical side they're undergone tireless team of pros working on the editorial side. Hi this is Katie Kramer from the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland. My my name is nick. Don I help run sees aditorial coverage of the World Economic Forum in Davos A A. We just saw colleague fall into a snowbank and that's kind of the way life works here in Davos. We are on the rooftop of the Congress Center here in the town of Davos which is nestled among the Swiss Alps and the Broadcast Facility for. CNBC is on the roof in a series of tense and newsrooms with to broadcast units one ten for us. One ten four Europe and the newsroom that houses about twenty producers anchors reporters all preparing each day's contact. And when when we do squawk box live from here Joe Becky and Andrew are sort of you know passengers on a crazy train. I think they sort of sit behind the desk while we bring saying what a dozen plus gas each day. We have the great benefit of having the busiest green room that we ever could possibly have with folks like Goldman and sacks CEO the Treasury Secretary of the United States pay pal CIO Chevron CEO all hanging out together integral at the same time and then one by one we bring them out to the set for an informative and thoughtful discussion about what's going on in the world and then we say thank you very much. They go onto the back to the Congress Center and the next guest comes up. So Joe Becky Andrew Have to stay on their toes. Do About As you said twelve different interviews on tall different companies with twelve different kind of possibilities for questions and the answers. So it's a calling it. A crazy train is probably a good good Phrase good good does this year it was what was the big takeaway for me if we come here. And if the president's here I hope. CNBC gets gets talk to him by a big surprise. Big All of the chatter chatter chatter about all these other issues this group which often heats trump for his style loves trump whereas economy and that although coming here I was was once again trying to steal myself for all of the the woke comments Andrews Column in The New York Times are we.

Tear the Tech Company provides software and data services for well a a lot of groups as you'll hear but it's probably best known for its relationship with the US government also quite controversial Given the company's role full working with the government in defense on ice with our allies with corporations there's always been view. It's a very secretive company in two thousand nineteen gene alone. The company signed one and a half billion dollars in. US government contracts one of those contracts in eight hundred million dollar deal with the Army Peletier beat out fortune. Five hundred company Raytheon for that one marking the first time that a venture backed firms received that caliber of recognition from the Pentagon and possibly more than anything else though. It's the company's Partnership With Immigration and Customs Enforcement that's created a stir until valley as well as internally Turnley at Peletier Alex Carp founded the company alongside a few other entrepreneurs including famed venture capitalist. Peter Thiel he co-founded Pay Powell and founders fund and invested in facebook anyway. Alex is he is one of the most unique interesting people in the world of business. He rarely does interviews but luckily for us. He's speaks Andrew. I gotTa tell you it's every time I have an opportunity to speak with him and really we've been able to do it now and you'll hear Davos you're just sort of blown away by the things that he says so here. It is Andrew. Ross sorkin annual interview with outs carp mark. CEO of talent here in the Alpine ski town of Davos Switzerland. Arc's thank you for doing this. Thank you so this was a very big year for you. We have a number of contracts. This is true we did very well so what happened. Well the long version is about five years ago we looked at our product offering and decide to rebuild our core offering for the government start with a commercial product which can be used to commercial and government and revitalize tragic going to market and and we saw the results Last year but dramatically this year and so that ended up with two very very large contracts that are public number of contracts that are not public and commissioner impact. That we're very proud of just so we're clear that's released publicly. One point five billion dollars in new contracts with that's true to you speak about those contracts. Let's well two of them are public. One of them is essentially. Give the DOD glow operating system in software with a on a timeline that otherwise I wouldn't be realistic so transformed the way. Decisions are made inside what amounts through the largest data organization in the world in timeline. That is very very aggressive. Another there is a little more classified and And we're we're just pouncing forward. The Core Mission of our company always was to make the West especially America the strongest longest in the world. The strongest ever been And for the sake of global peace and prosperity and we feel like this year we really showed what that would mean visit today. Do you believe is being driven by the government work versus the corporate. Well in the last couple of years most of our revenue has been commercial. Most of our clients have been government the the government government work inside and outside America's so strong Because of how it compounds that it's gone from being sixty forty commercial government to probably probably fifty fifty the impact of government. Work is the thing we are obviously the most proud of and is the past year. This sort of larger geopolitical Nicole conversation around. What does that into the business? Well you know decoupling. And and and strict regulation is a bonanza for pounder when we looked at what what did what should be done with data fifteen years ago. Most people aren't thinking about it and instead of thinking of this simplistic problem with aggregation of data. We thought about data's how can you aggregate and disaggregated this aggregate disaggregation meaning. How can you have silos while at the same time being able to call up at a granular level of what you're allowed to see in that silo? And what does that mean at a political level as Countries and states both need to have a horizontal view but want to have a more vertical view. They need Assad for platform that can allow a two countries to work together without sharing all all the information or to jurisdictions to work or to companies that for example a global company will have data stores in America data stores in Europe. Where only a subset can be shared in our architecture is is quite frankly built to deal with that and was built fifteen years ago to deal with that and revitalize five years ago so this decouple these these this decoupling world combined with Regulation quite frankly also combined with deep skepticism towards consumer in the valley is very much helping us. WanNa get to the sketches of the valley and just a moment but I wanted to ask you specifically about the protests this year about your work for ice and that ice this contract and what it's meant for your business we as everyone who's followed our company knows we take what amounts to strong but often Controversial positions the position of our company from the beginning was we're GONNA make America and the West Song and safer by integrating world class software into what amounts to legacy I see do systems one of our contracts at ice and there's an we started this contract under Obama and obviously there's a lot of concern legitimate concern about what happens on employer how it happens and what is the enforcement. Look like certainly diminish part of our work Finding people in our country who are undocumented. But it's a legitimate intimate complex issue. My personal position is We acknowledged a complexity people protesting whom I respect also dogs complexity is an issue that that is controversial and complex enough that the small island in Silicon Valley. That would love to decide what you eat. How you eat and monetize all your data should also decide who lives and your country and on what your conditions? There are elections. There are rules. They should be enforced. A transfer of one presidency and other and the the view of Silicon Valley that we get to the decide should not be the way the site of course this led to protests. My House has been protested for many months almost every day. Our officers protested many Palestinians who do not just follow what I say but are critical people. protested against internally.

Employees Toyota is customers communities and yes shareholders. But it's not just for CEOS previous attendees have included His Royal Highness Prince William Bonneau now President Donald Trump and Jane Goodall. Who's conversation with Andrew? Ross Sorkin is in Monday. sparkplug shameless this year. President Trump delivered the opening address. The trump taking the stage for special congratulations on your fiftieth year hosting the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum truly amazing achievement. And he's just one of around three thousand people at this conference. An elite three thousand. It's a star studded crowd and a breathtaking backdrop. But what goes on behind the Glamour while I'm here at CNBC's headquarters which is a New Jersey if y Katie creamer. You're usual. Host is in Switzerland and with the anchors and a very special production. She will be taking us behind the scenes and sounds of Davos twenty twenty this whole week. Hi this is Katie Kramer from the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland just to tell you a little bit about. What squawk box does when we're on site here in Davos? We're on the roof of the Congress Center which is where all the action happens of the forty nine year old World Economic Forum every day and we broadcast our live. US morning show here in the middle of the day between gene about noon and three PM. Beautiful Setting in Davos we have snow. Capped out behind US evergreen trees. It's freezing and we're doing it all outside so I will bring you a little bit of context and a little bit of information from Becky. Quick and Joe Kernan who had had a long day a long day in the Alpine Colt speaking of that long day when the broadcast ended the team wasn't even finished. They stayed late for this podcast. Which means four plus hours without a break longer than your average commercial and yup no bathroom earnings Joe Becky and Katie debriefed conversation with Carlisle? Group CO founder. David Rubenstein if you listen closely you can hear the Alpine wind behind them mm-hmm but you won't hear Andrew. He left the show mid broadcast to host a panel and deliver even more once in a year content for CNBC's viewers you you podcast listeners. And his near times deal book readers. I think what's actually funny is the themes that the World Economic Forum puts out is is being the important themes for the week are not the things that people actually end up talking about when they're not sitting on the panels in front of the stage in front of the group here Corporate Responsibility. I feel like we've touched etched on that in some places today but really so much of what we ended up talking about is the global economy. How that's going and how things probably are going to improve this year? Just just based on the idea that the top two economies in the world China and the United States in reverse order are are are now seeming to get along much better than that creates less friction among so how many of the other countries that are each of their spheres. which are so reliant on how those two countries do in terms of their own growth if China and the United States can get along the little better and clear up the outlook not only for other countries but other companies as well that could portend a much better for the year ahead came in this morning? First thing I said to everyone one in the tenth was it's my fervent. Wish that this entire form here could get back to being what it's supposed to be an and economic forum. I want to talk about business. I WanNa talk about innovation. I WanNA talk about technology. I WanNa talk about competition. I WanNa talk about all these things that get lost in the woke. Es Sustainability sort of obsession that millennials or whomever you WANNA blame it on. I mean that Davos has always always been whatever the flavor Du jour is it was in an income inequality from all the guys come bringing their corporate jets here. So they've always been tone deaf and always been high-minded minded in sanctimonious and once again. I thought that's what I was pleasantly surprised right from the get-go that everyone wanted to talk about the United States economy and what the global economy economy might be able to learn from the way we've differentiated in distinguish ourselves and in the United States. So I was pleasantly surprised and it didn't even mind for hours today. Today and president trump addressed the did and was well received and it's a far cry from two years ago when he still had the star power. But but I think I think there are a lot of question marks about whether it was going to work in an even Andrew acknowledged that in hindsight now it was a pretty good reception because it just is what it is. The United United States is the strongest economy in the envy of the world. Right right one question David Rubenstein just because we had him on for a few minutes and he's obviously a global investor and works with companies all over for the world who is in a unique position to understand how the American economy is being perceived globally. Did you get any messages from him. Particularly about optimism from global companies or concerns in global companies. He isn't willing to draw a line between trump and what's happening in the United States is for whatever reason season the. US economy is where it is right now whether it's trump or whether it was set up from said that some of them I don't WanNA trumpet. I'M NOT GONNA trumpet. Trump the actually said that but he also said look a lot of president. Trump's policies are responsible. Yes that we have are in David. I know him and grudgingly he. He's saying those things but it has to be acknowledged that he did and and the one thing he did acknowledge businesses good for for From Carlisle and for others. Now no we heard about riding a horse. Just you got to know window. Slow it down and get off and I mean I think that's in the back of everyone's mind because it just seems like it seems like it's too good to be true right now at this expanse of which worries me too because generally generally when we come to Davos and we hear a lot of people saying great things in quick succession after that there's always some sort of the economy or stock market that takes place around. There's IT gets right. Usually account or enter indicator can. There's a lot of optimism that we've heard here so here so far But they're they're there are real reasons for it and kind of Po Point back to corporate profits to plans that economies have to the removal of some big overhangs. That have been with us For the last year or longer you're those are the type of things that people are feeling pretty good about right now here. Here's Joe kicking off. The conversation with David Rubenstein the Carlisle Group Co founder and Co Executive Kim Chairman. You're a journalist in an interviewer. I want you to interview or being becky here now. What okay now? The only problem is you have real world experience a lot of things. Do you have to totally forget everything you know in the real world to be effective journalists because I have to no. I don't think so you just have to use your common sense. Good judgment little kidding. None of us. I know of ever done anything but this anyway is the state of the king. We're going to interview you again. But we can. It can be a free happy happy interview. It can be a free exchange. Let's do it that way. So we've had Paul Tudor Jones and Ray Dally. Oh with the Plethora of issues that they say with the future whether it's debt or whether it's income inequality where are we really think objectively well as dizzy dean. The famous pitcher said you know. It's it's not really bragging if you actually deliver and so yes. There's some bragging about the economy but the economy's in really good shape so people who aren't happy with the president. They may not agree that some some of his policies work but some of these policies seem to be working. So I'm not saying I'm a supporter or detractor it is. I'm just saying that the policy seem to be working the US economies in reasonably good shape. Who who would have predicted a year ago that we'd be where we are today? Nobody would have probably so the economy's doing pretty well. They never stay strong for a long time. You never know but right now i. I don't see any prospect of a recession in twenty twenty and I also think unemployment's GonNa stay low. Interest.

"Let's move onto the take what are the possible ways to get out of this and have a good solution because it is worth talking about the dynamic that love it was because that dynamic in the house which has been and under covered much to Paul Ryan and his staff's amusement is the central dynamic to the whole thing which is as much as we don't Republicans in the Senate and don't agree with them and a lot of the factors it is possible on certain issues to get bills out of the Senate to have at least by agreement in the Senate the problem is as it has been throughout the Obama years and now throughout the trump years the dynamic in the house which is I mean you're talking about government shutdown is dysfunctional what is dysfunctional is the fucking hastert rule in that the House of Representatives I talked to my dad about this yesterday because he was like I don't understand the an Amex and and I explain and he was like Oh my God like the House of the US House of Representatives does not work on a majority basis it doesn't even work on like a sixty vote Senate majority basis now the House of Representatives only works if a majority of Republicans are four something basically saying that we won't leave it doesn't matter of Democrats for something we will only put legislation on the floor of a majority of Republicans are for even proceeds Obama this is the same dynamic that was plate when Hank fucking Paulson got down on his knees and Beg Nancy Pelosi for votes to save the financial system right because they do not have control over the majority of the House Republican Caucus they have no idea these are the people that came out of the Fox News machine they are loyal to the tea party they are loyal to Fox News they are loyal to Breitbart they are not loyal to Paul Ryan and Paul Ryan was it which is why that he's been walking around pretending that he's not doing something because trump is is all over the place when that is pretend Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have been pretending that what they're doing waiting for guidance from trump they know that trump will sign what they send him or he won't but it's pretend to wait for him because really what they're doing is avoiding Jordy Meaning Democrats and some Republicans then the Freedom Caucus tea party asshole optima speaker and they might and then Paul Ryan's argument so now that we've identified this dynamic what is the path to possibly getting a fix on Daca and protecting the dreamers if we now know that the ultimate obstacle is the house so I think best case scenario here a scenario in which we were wrong chuck Schumer made the right and the Democrats made the right move today that scenario would be that in February sometime or before February you do get a bill much like the Graham Durban build it has fifty six votes out of the Senate now the Senate the United States Senate has passed a piece of bipartisan legislation to protect the dreamers increase board security do whatever else somehow you get Donald Trump in one of his fits of wanting a deal wanting to be liked whatever else to say I like that Senate deal it's but like I don't know how any of US could have any faith in I'm just I'm just trying to play it out I'm just trying ta so what happens is then so then trump so then it goes out of the Senate trump approves it and then four and now if we have another shutdown now it's on Paul Ryan now as Paul Ryan shut down because he is the only thing standing between the dreamers being now if nothing comes out of that process then there was no hope to begin right we can't get any to let's say there's an agreement that comes out of the Senate and Mitch McConnell wants to get it change this dynamic in the house no probably not but shut down in that we are advocating for position that everybody supports but one thing it does have in common is that Democrats are in the minority we are doing the best we can with very little leverage or one.
