"Going on. Here comes one of our editors. Hi, John. Yeah, his office was always a little messy, not fabulously messy, but it had stacks of good things around. He had posters of musicians I admire. There was a John Coltrane poster. There was a Bob Dylan poster. He was calm, which was a wonderful thing anywhere. He never raised his voice, even if he was displeased with someone else. He was quiet. He was funny. He had a very rise sense of humor. It just was really nice being with him, working with him. From the very, very first words we ever exchanged, he was communicating to me that it was, it was John and Evan against the world. And the enemy was the writing. It was the work. It was about how can I help you achieve what you might be able to do on the page. If we just give you a few tools, let's hum a few bars together and see where you go. In my experience, he was like a minimalist editor. He wasn't like, let's go in and rework this piece. So I have very vivid memories of the few times that I overrule John and he was right in retrospect in all of them and they were always things that I thought were cute to be honest and he always thought were cliched and he was right. I called John from the field and say the guys I thought were the good guys were actually massacring whole villages and he'd say, well, for a new take on them and he had that ability to hold contradictions in his mind what keats called negative capability. And I kind of learned from him to roll with these complete reversals of fortune where the whole thing is kind of thrown up in the air because I was covering conflicts sometimes like U.S. policy toward the conflict. We discover something that really ran against the current of the conventional understanding and so we had to consider what the impact of telling the story that way would be and John just was a fantastic interlocutor for that.

"When I think about that, Vis-à-vis John, it sort of all fits together and it was also the way he edited. After a few years and his trial run with George rial, the horse racing columnist who went by the byline odd acts minor, John was given the chance to edit a piece. It was the story of the most articulate schizophrenic person anyone ever had the good fortune to find. And it was willing to cooperate for all that time. Susan Sheehan. Writer. I did not know of Jim, his first 5 years at The New Yorker. These island in Washington and was only in New York to do research, and I little kids, so I hurried home to write and was little in the office because when I was in New York, I was in a maximum security prison and welfare islama metal institution, not at The New Yorker. So the piece had gone to an editor, I'd worked with before. And I was discouraged by the way he received it because I was wrung out after three years of being hit and abused. We have to expect a middle institution, but he said it's on my desk. And then we started working on it. He started making a couple of really weird cuts, and I never went running to Sean in my life, till then, and I said, I don't like these cuts. And the next thing I knew, Sean, had given me to John Bennett, the good luck of my life, and I was lucky to be his one of his writers. I read the whole thing through skimmed it. And I thought it was amazing. The subject was a patient at creedmoor psychiatric center. She spoke in Shakespearean, soliloquies that were crazy. Also poetry somewhere. We had to divide it up into four parts. Soon after the piece appeared in the magazine, Susan published the story as a book called, is there no place on earth for me? And it won the Pulitzer Prize. I asked Susan if she remembered John's reaction to that news. Yes. He looked pleased and said nothing. What was it, William Shawn's reaction? He thought you couldn't stop reading it. He thought it was great. Was he, what was his reaction with you? He just said that, mister Bennett, she and shrubs spoke very highly of your work on this piece. Really highly. John had the same approach that was wonderful whether it was Papua New Guinea or old age or anything I wrote. Nothing in particular. He was very good at it. He was good at everything. John

"And hit glow and behold The New Yorker in 1964, which is early for Dylan. And an article I'm doing called cracking, shaking, breaking sounds. Which was a weird title. I know it was Sean's. And I thought it was terrible. In fact, it describes exactly what Dylan sounds alike. In high school, John started drinking a lot. He worked two or three jobs because he needed the money, and he managed to graduate early at the age of 17. I wanted to, you know, have a tweed jacket and be an English professor. But it's also this Cadillac. Gary Snyder, whole world of the road stuff in my head. John and his girlfriend went to the University of Texas. And when the fall came, I was doing a paper where William marriage matter. If you went to one of his classes, you would immediately go to the library and get out 6 dusty Greek tragedies and try to read them all at once. It was so inspiring. So I wrote a paper on the antiquity. And I guess I involved in the paper that I just dropped everything else. Didn't go to any exams, turned in the paper, got an a on it, and so that was my academic career was washed up. John spent that summer working at the post office. Then he and his girlfriend saved up $800 and got on a bus, headed for New York. We all know that there's a beginning and a middle and an end

"And this was some new strange literary form that I couldn't quite grasp. And my first day at the copy desk. William Shawn put through the talk session, talking to town. And so in the stories we find, he edited them. One story was fine, but it had a terrible ending. And he just shopped the ending off and left the story as it was. We had no intake. Then I discovered the secret of The New Yorker talk style. It was just a bad ending, so you got it. And had no ending. At some point along the way, mister Shawn knocked on your door. Yes. And said what to you? Mister Bennett. George ryle is very ill that he hasn't expected to live without the weak. I wonder if you can do the magazine in favor because you come in on Sunday and let him dictate a race to you. He's blind. He not really aware of anything. That's going on. But just as a favor to us to him, could you pretend to take his coffee over? And then read it back to him on Monday or just tell him it's good. Would that be? All right. I know it's a very strange assignment, but he's been with the magazine for nearly 50 years. And we owe him this. And I said, of course. So I came in on Sunday. Called him up. He dictated a race to me about a hundred words. Do you remember the details? I remember that he conflated secretariat and men of war. And other famous thoroughbreds. All in one race. From different eras. Yes. I took it down. And thank you. And then the next day I called him up and told him that everything went well. And thanks for the peace. Well, the next Wednesday. Mister Sean came in again, someone sheepishly said, mister peanut, mister ryle, to have great fortune survived. The week I'm wondering if you could do the same favor for us again this weekend. That is sure. I did this for four or 5 weeks before he finally died. Now, a lot of people's reaction to this is to companies really do this for their employees. And the other reaction is I can't believe I'm working in an institution. There would do this. How lucky can you be? What did that experience teach you about editing? Well, I like to say that showed mister Sean that I had a good bedside manner, which every editor needs. Bill thin again. Writer. I think I first met John when I was freelancing and trying to sell stuff to the magazine and came to visit and I knew one of his writers who introduced me and I was surprised I had an idea of The New Yorker editor being this kind of straight laced new englander or something. And here was John, you know, straight out of Texas as it were. Very unpretentious and didn't kind of wear his education on his sleeve and talk down to you at

"The voice you're hearing belong to a man named John Bennett. He worked at The New Yorker for more than 40 years. First, on the copy desk, then as an editor. But I added my instinct. A lot of editors overanalyze a piece. Tetris doesn't work for me. It's like a skating on thin ice and if you stop to think about it, you fall through. It just keeps going. So it's something a very instinctive editor. Unlike most, I think. John was unlike most in almost every way. The path he took to becoming a distinguished editor and beloved mentor to so many myself included was especially unusual. So a few months ago, when John was diagnosed with cancer, we decided to make this recording about his life and career. He got very sick, very fast. By the time we got to it, he was in the hospital. And he likes vanilla insure and he likes a little orange juice. We have the phone right there. We'll get it for you. You can order. Okay. Okay. An orange orange. Orange juice. And coffee in the morning. Not deny that. Tonight, that's about it. I did bring an insurance. Okay. That's Dana, John's wife. She got us situated, then left. So it was just John and me. He was in his bed wearing a hospital gown. But describing John in this circumstance seems undignified and certainly doesn't give you a picture of who he was in his element. Here's Nick palm garden who is one of John's writers. He was sort of stylishly slovenly, I guess. You know, he had either khakis or jeans really baggy sort of slung low, you know, an untucked button down shirt, usually blue, I mean, for all I know he had two of each and some old tennis sneakers, you know, he had this sort of laid back laconic aspect about him that once you got to know it a little better, it was extremely welcoming. It was that office being in his space, getting his attention. It was sort of a warm embrace. And I sort of increasingly over time, especially once he was my editor, I spent a lot of time in that office, and he had this chair. I think the chair I would sit in was an old, it was really deep. I mean, just sink into it. So, and then he'd be in his desk chair, and he'd spin around and happily just pass the time. Okay, so when did you start working at The New Yorker? On January of 1975. And what was your first position there? At the copy desk. The editor buys the piece. I bought the piece. And it went to the copy desk. And you weren't allowed to make any substitute changes. You're only allowed to do style changes in New Yorker style was very eccentric, every introductory clause has a comma. I just thought that weird 20 style. It took me 6 months with the style book to learn style. It was amazing. So I did that for a year or so. I remember being very surprised before I worked at The New Yorker hours of intense New York and creepy. And some of the talk stories I couldn't understand what was going on because they were just going along and suddenly stopping properly.

"Surface also warning dust from Africa's Saharan desert will drape itself across Houston and east Texas turning skies a milky gray keeping temperatures high and making allergies worse Companies 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than a 120 countries I'm working up This is Bloomberg David Thank you so much rittich Well we had those CPI numbers this morning and certainly the markets were surprised by how hot they were And so now we turn to someone who really is responsible for explaining them to the president of the United States She's doctor safiya rausch She's chair of the president's council of economic advisers Doctor Ross thank you so much for being with us Let me start with the most basic question here The market certainly were surprised Were you surprised by how hot these numbers were Well look we understand that inflation is a global challenge right now as we knit our economy's back together after this pandemic and given the war Russia's war against Ukraine So we expected them to be elevated you know forecasting is really difficult At this time and what we could see is in the month on month increase in headline which was about 1% about 50% of that was due to food and energy And my understanding is really difficult to forecast price increases You know changes in prices and that's really what was challenging for forecasters But look the president understands that prices are a challenge which is why he's focused on it every day So doctor Russell as you say it's really hard to forecast I certainly wouldn't want to try to do that I would be no good at it whatsoever But as you look forward as you advise the president do you see any prospect of a significant cooling of inflation before November and I picked that date perhaps at random perhaps because they're midterms So what we understand is that again as we just pointed out especially month on month the headline inflation which includes fuel and food is our biggest challenge We understand that even core inflation was broad based and some of that is actually due to energy costs which bleed into many other factors And the fact that we are coming out of a global pandemic I do see I am optimistic that we will see some cooling inflation I am not going to forecast exactly what the numbers will be and how fast but we see supply chains getting better We see the throughput getting better We see consumption patterns renormalizing which will put some pressure on services but nonetheless we see a rebalancing which I think will be healthy for price stability as well Importantly the fed is also focused on inflation That's part of their dual mandate price stability full employment the president is giving them the space to do what they need to do And we can you know part of the market's reaction is they're expecting the fed to actually take that charge seriously which will also generate some cooling We all have to have faith in the fed after all because as you suggest the president has said it's really their responsibility At the same time the fed has been off and some feather fairly substantial ways I talked earlier today with somebody you know well a former colleague Larry summers of Harvard And he had some harsh words for the fed's projections so far This is part of what he had to say I think the fed's forecast from March saying that inflation would be coming down to the twos by the end of the year was frankly delusional when issued and looks even more ridiculous today So doctor Ross is that a fair characterization and perhaps beyond what happened in the past Does it raise questions about how confident we can be going forward that the fed has their arms around this problem Look I am not going to I'm going to respect the independence of the fed and not comment on their policy making I will say that they are focused on it and I do have confidence in the team It's great that the nominees have been confirmed We need Michael Barr to get through as well But we know that they are focused on it Importantly the president is doing what he can to compliment those efforts So for example he really encourages Congress to pass the bill that would address shipping costs because we know again shipping costs raise the process of bringing goods in particular overseas or across the country And it's important that we reduce those costs of shipping He encourages Congress to work with him to reduce the cost for families for prescription drugs for child care for energy costs And importantly deficit reduction is also deflationary and helps with inflation And the president urges Congress to work with him to raise taxes for the various wealthiest Americans for our biggest corporations because again that will help to ease pressures on prices as well Doctor Ross we've heard some talk about corporate profit making driving the inflation problem And yesterday we heard the treasury secretary Janet Yellen at a New York Times event actually addressed this question although she allowed us how there might be increased profits That was not fundamentally what was driving It was supply and demand Do you agree with that I do agree that what is generating the inflationary pressure right now is a mismatch between demand and supply Again this goes back to the pandemic when we had to power down the world economy but our government supported people so they could buy food pay rent continue supporting their lifestyles but our supply could not match that So that's why we see inflation around the world And even in the U they're seeing inflation at historic levels The war in Ukraine has only exacerbated those efforts So as supply and demand starts to normalize I am optimistic We will get back to price stability and get back to an economy that is building in a more sustainable steady way I'm curious about what target The White House has for inflation We know the fed's target is 2% Some people think that might be a little unrealistic at the moment at least Do you have a target for inflation So having an inflation for target is really in the domain of monetary policy and that is squarely in the domain of the Federal Reserve which is why it's so important that they be given the independence and the latitude to do what they need to do to address inflation which has not been the case with every administration There have been presidents that have wanted to get in the way of the fed for political reasons But this president understands that that is what the fed needs to do And he wants to be pursuing fiscal policies that are complimentary to that Everyone is very concerned with inflation The president has been very explicit I think he called it the bane of our existence earlier this week No question but are there some benefits actually from some inflation We talked with doctor Paul romer you know him He's the Nobel laureate in economics yesterday And he suggested that actually there may be some benefits This is part of what he had to say Yeah this is the hidden unnoticed true success of Biden's policy because we've got wages growing faster in dollar terms for the people at the bottom end of the skill distribution One of the benefits of this period of higher inflation is going to be that we can start to close some of the wage gap and help the people at the bottom catch up And doctor Roman came complete with the chart as you expect him to the broke out of the wage increases by quartile showing that the lowest quartile is going by far the fastest of the four different quartiles Is this part of White House policy So the president has always been very clear that his economic policy making is geared towards building this economy from the bottom up and middle out And so the fact that wages are growing for those who have not seen significant wage increases for the past several decades is part of his economic plan What's important is it going forward that those wage increases are built on a growing economy that they be sustainable that they be steady and so the president understands that that involves bringing down the cost for households but it also means getting inflation out of control But absolutely the president's whole economic policy making is designed to generate greater sustainable economic growth that is more widely shared So I wonder we've heard from you and from others at The White House we want sustainable stable growth What does that look like Do you have a definition for that Do you have a target there for what that would look like A way to GP growth or job growth whatever What.

Winter Storm Leaves Many In Texas Without Power And Water
"Texas is paying the price. But the rest of us. We are learning something about the oil market in this economy from american public media this is marketplace in los angeles. I'm kai ryssdal. It is wednesday today the seventeenth day of february. Good as always to have you along everybody. We talked yesterday. For a bit about the vagaries of the texas energy market which along with the cold and the snow and the ice has left millions of people. Three at least more than that probably. That's millions of course without power and the thing is that even after the weather starts improving eventually the effects of this now three day long crisis are likely to linger and to be felt far beyond the lone star state. That's partly because of how the oil market works or in. Some cases doesn't marketplace adjusted. Ho gets going when the oil supply chain for as it should oil gets pumped out of the ground truck door pipe to a refinery and transformed into products including gasoline diesel and jet fuel. All of these your experience some type of disruption because of the weather. That's matt smith. Director of commodity. Research clipper data which tracks the oil supply chain. He says right now. Oil just isn't getting pumped out of the ground refineries or shutdown and companies aren't exporting barrels. Out of the gulf coast. We're seeing a number that he's different pull such is houston coppola's christie being closed the gulf coast handles roughly half of the country's oil refining capacity. That means the effects of the extreme cold will ripple even further down the supply chain throughout the us says michael weber and energy professor at the university of texas in jet fuel. Atlanta depends on a refinery in east texas which depends on oil production in west texas when it comes to gasoline refineries have a certain amount stored up that trucks can deliver to retail gas stations. For now that's because earlier this month. Gasoline supplies relatively normal levels but energy. Professor tom sang at the university of tulsa says if they're not replenished the question becomes okay along with these refineries to be shut down and how much how many days it supplied is. This actually represents in the meantime prices of oil and gas futures have started rising. Sang says that means all of us could soon start paying more to. I would expect that. Certainly electric bills and natural gas bills are gonna see. Spikes sang says that might be further down the line for the rest of the country.
