Grubhub Accused of Overcharging Restaurants Amid COVID Pandemic in New Lawsuits

"Ingram hub in new york city a lot of restaurants. We're finding that they were getting charged for phone calls. Now you think about that. And you're like that's kind of weird. How could grub charge a restaurant for a phone call. The way they do that is when you go to the grub up pitch for your favorite restaurant they generate a number that route routes through grub hub. I so you're actually calling the restaurant but not before grab the mafia daughter for you right. But like this is why they feel like it's mafia. They opened the door for you. They're not providing any service besides discovery. Personally i've done this. I i wanna call the restaurant directly order from them and reduced that mission costs so i go and they don't like maybe have a website or maybe grow is the first thing that shows up so i clicked on crop up. Call that phone number now. I know they are not getting a benefit from that. They're still being charged. And what's weird about it is. They can't determine the order that you've done so they do like an average so like they between like for this restaurant the hampel noodle the ex-pat in in harlem charging like five to eight dollars five to seven dollars about like approximately per order so like if i'm ordering like an eleven dollar noodles myself and now they're being charged five to seven dollars for that like that's a crazy amount of money. In a lot of cases it's an algorithm that was determining how charge because there's nobody on the phone listening. Actually i listening to the calls so the algorithm says this call last thirty seconds. It's an order but sometimes it wasn't an order. The person was like hey like do you have this dish like and they were like no and i actually hung up and drop hub was actually chart charging for that. Oh this is. there's a lawsuit actually a couple of lawsuits. That have happened outside of new york city or people have sued for group. Says like you're right. We should only charge for orders on the phone that resulted order so they still believe that like it should be able to get money also phone call orders but they basically saying there are a lot of fraudulent charge. There are some fraudulent charges that

Timothy Dexter: Was He Brilliant, Lucky, or Bonkers?

"Timothy. Dexter started his life with very humble beginnings he was born into the town of maldon in the massachusetts bay colony. In seventeen forty seven. He didn't receive much of an education growing up when he was eight years old. He dropped out of school to work on a farm at the age of sixteen. He became an apprentice to a. Tanner was a fine trade to be in back in the day. But nothing that would make you significantly wealthy when he finished his apprenticeship. He was given a set of clothes. By the tanner who he worked for. It was called a freedom suit. He sold his freedom suit for eight dollars and twenty cents and use that money to relocate to newburyport massachusetts. This was where his good luck started. While in newburyport he met the woman he would marry. Elizabeth frosting ham. Elizabeth was a widow ten years older than dexter. She had four children in a very nice house in He set up shop aching gloves and selling other leather goods. As well as reselling blubber from whalers by the end of the revolutionary war. He had saved up several thousand dollars which was quite a bit of money back then so far. His story is nothing special. You as a middle aged man living in newburyport who had to find business but it was at this point that he began he string of insanely successful yet at face. Incredibly stupid investments. The first investment was in continental dollars during the revolutionary war. The continental congress issued the first american currency and it quickly became worthless. The phrase not worth a continental came from this currency almost. No one accepted the currency by the end of the war. Yet many people especially poor people were paid in this currency and could do nothing with it. After the war many of the wealthy citizens in newburyport began buying continentals mostly as a charity gesture. Dexter however wanted to earn the respect of the local elite who never quite respected him and went all in he purchased the worthless currency just to give people something in return any purchase the currency for less than a penny to the dollar later when the federal government was formed they agreed to purchase all of the outstanding continental dollars at one percent of face value.

Elon Musk Teases Tesla AI Day for Summer 2021

"Now we're here today. We're gonna be talking about some recent. Us tweets about tests a day. Looks like we may have a tentative date for when that maybe scheduled we'll talk about what to expect for that event we've also got a little bit of an update on the model s. next refresh and a couple of other stories as well. Quick look at the stock tesla today finished up nine tenths of a percent to seven hundred and thirty eight dollars five cents that did trail slightly behind the nasdaq up. One point three percent and volume really fell off today for tusla about twenty seven and a half million shares traded today versus the pretty high volumes. We had yesterday and the day prior yesterday. Of course we did have that coin based direct listing. So i know a lot of people like to take a look at what is doing what they're trading. They did sell off some tesla yesterday. That always seems to get a little bit of attention on social media but definitely a normal process for arc. Tesla's diller top holding in many funds it has risen above ten percent in some of those funds and generally when that happens arc tends to sell down a little bit and on the coin based point arctic initiate positions there across funds at about zero point seven five percent weight so selling tesla would help provide liquidity for that new position. So nothing too surprising there. I just wanted to point out because again it gets talked about. And that may have been a little bit of pressure on tussle in general yesterday as tesla had a tougher day arc. Probably not the only one to make a move like that all right with that being said let's get into ai elon. Musk caddy number of tweets yesterday about tesla and their progress in artificial intelligence. He kicked it off by noting. That quote tesla ai. Slash autopilot engine team is making excellent progress solving real world. Ai and quote he followed that up with a number of tweets some of which related to full self. Self-driving the beta button. We'll get to those in a second but he also responded to a question asking. When can we expect a day. Yulon said probably late july so first thing there anytime we have a timeline from and we got to be cautious on that he saying probably here so be a little bit more cautious. Even this is an event so it is a little bit more up to tesla when they hold this. But i would assume they wouldn't want to hold an event like this until the fd beta is broadly released.

Interview with Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky

"Talk to me about going forward and connecting people and the focus. You're putting on experiences but also on the lives you can create for your host. Who in part. I think are taking equity and becoming quite important for the brand. We've just heard in london here this week. That uber has said its drivers will become workers with benefits and minimum wage. So they're getting brought into the companies. So how do you sort of to advance the experience of your host but also the people that are using the platform to rent yet to great questions. Maybe i'll start with the second question host. And then i'll go to the first one the different like let's just take us versus uber. One difference in us an uber is the founders of uber created uber because they wanted to be writers another words they said it would be awesome if i could summon a black car so they started on the buyer side. We were totally opposite. My roommate and i weren't desiring to have a service like airbnb to travel because we were too broke to even want such a service. I mean we would have loved it but we were so broke. We just wanted to way to make money so we really started as host. So in that sense. I think this is a company of hosts by host for host and even if we have veered from that in the past. We're back there. And so i'm very proud of the fact that number one host have made one hundred and ten billion dollars on our platform since we started. That's pretty cool. The next thing. I'm saying i think it's cooler. Fifty five percent of that income has gone to women most ecommerce platforms. The vast majority economics. They're not evenly distributed on airbnb. The vast majority of income is outside the united states and more than half of it goes to women. it's a pretty diverse audience. We have four million host on airbnb. Ninety percent of our hosts are individual people so there is a question. How many of these are professionals. The answer is ten percent ninety percent of individuals. The most common careers are healthcare workers schoolteachers. In students these are the three most common professions that we've seen so these are truly everyday people like my parents. My parents are social workers. And it would make sense that people who need supplemental income would be everyday people for the most part one of the things we did before it went public. Is i got a piece of advice from somebody. They said. institutionalize your intentions. So that even as a public company you can minimize conflicts. Your vision and what they really meant was wants to go public. The cement of your company gets a little harden. What do you want to bake into the company before you go public. And i said one of the things i want to bake in is to create a host endowment. I want to set aside equity for host and so one of the things we did is we took nine point. Two million shares of airbnb equity and we put it into is essentially a airbnb host endowment kind of like a college endowment where it would grow every year but then some of the appreciation would get distributed into the host each year. So that was the idea that endowment is nearly two billion dollars today and growing. I hope it's one day. Larger than most college endowments and we created a host advisory board of seventeen host from fourteen countries to advise us on how to spend that money and reinvest it back to the host community. We also allowed host to invest in our ipo. And we had. I think it was fifteen thousand host. If i'm not mistaken who invested. They bought stock at sixty eight dollars. A share as you know the stock prices at the time of this recording around triple so those hosts have done really well and if i could allowed winning more host to invest in the whatever but we had some sec regulations that limited us and so these are just some of the many things we tried to do. But i just want to say like our commitment to host just beginning. Because i've committed to putting more than one hundred million dollars in my own equity into the host endowment and we're gonna continue to invest in our host because we are nothing without our host and in the end the day everybody's more of a community anything else i mean. Yeah we are a technology company in a sense but with people are buying isn't technology and they're not buying real estate we're not like zillow wh- senator of our company our host and our people and so that leads to the second question. What is airbnb about in. Where's it going when we started airbnb. Our first tagline was travel like a human. The idea was that you were like kind of treated for who you are. And you're seen for who you are valued for who you are and that was kind of the idea. I mean it was idealistic. But i can tell you. We definitely believed it in the early days and we realized that i had these two crazy ideas when we start airbnb. These crazy beliefs and people thought i was absurd. The first idea was we thought people were fundamentally good. That sounds kind of crazy because if you open any newspaper you wouldn't think they're good. People are good wise every headline about the worst of humanity. I think there was a famous quote by a former chief justice. The united states. You said i don't read the front page of the newspaper. I read the sports section. The front pages filled the man's failures. The sports pages. Filled man successes. I kind of feel like despite what we read in the news. People are funny. Good and i can tell you that we have the data to prove it. We probably more than anyone to prove what happens. When a hundred million people live together. Mostly good things sometimes bad things but statistically people are good and the second thing is true is that people are ninety nine point nine percent the same and you would never think that today given that we are so divided and yeah we spent a lot of time energy celebrating that point one percent. That makes us different. We call that culture in other things but let's not forget that we're mostly the same deep down and if you think people are good and their most the same then you'd believe that it's better to bring them together than divide them in separate them. That was the idea behind airbnb and so real estate and housing is just the beginning. We launched a few years ago. Airbnb experiences air experiences are essentially just three hour activities where you can have a host host. One other passions. You can go to tuscany. And make pasta with grandma grandma. Non an arena. Who's like an eighty plus year old grandmother who grew up during world war. Two and tells you about living in italy during the rise of fascism and then kind of what happened after and she tells you about her famous recipe and you make pasta in her house with and then you eat around the table this alternative to going to restaurants a pretty cool alternative so we have these like really interesting experiences and i think experiences is going to be a really really big product. I thought last year was going to break out year. But of course social distancing met we put on pause but we're looking at many new ways to try just connect people again. I think this is one of the loneliest times in human history right now. I think most people listening would probably say they felt some type of loneliness in the last year. We've been so separated. And i think in life we sometimes appreciate things when they're taken away from us and human connection and travels been taken away from us and i hope that makes us value at more than ever before and i'm pretty concerned about the amount of isolation happening and i don't think that social media and digital connections are fully nourishing. We actually do need real connection with real people. And i actually think it's good. Connect people are different than you. If you wanna like bridge the divide in any country. The best answer. I've heard is to just walk in other people's shoes don't argue over the internet. No one's ever changed. Someone's mind on a youtube comment section to my knowledge. But how could you not change your mind when you walk in someone. Just home live in their home walk. In their shoes do their activities. You may not agree with them but you will find that. Most of them are good and they're mostly just like you deep

Walmart+ tweaks to compete with Amazon Prime

"So walmart has been for the last two years trying to figure out its competitive response to the enormous success of amazon prime and walmart has walmart plus which they keep tweaking. And now i think it's tweak worthy of mentioning and considering signing up for walmart charges ninety eight dollars a year for plus and what you get. Is you get unlimited free delivery of groceries in a hurry and you get free delivery of non food items in the store or many that are available at walmart dot com. They can't be from third party. Sellers walmart would you get those delivered. Free no minimum order in one to two days although you know. I told the story recently about placing an order and i was so embarrassed because as a special toothpaste my hygienist wants me to us and it showed up two hours later at the house i thought. How much money did. I cost walmart for two tubes toothpaste that they delivered in two hours. But that's not the design. The design is really for the non-food to come in one to two days. The advantage of walmart over amazon is the prices are generally a lot cheaper from walmart than they are from amazon. But what you don't get well. Let's talk about what you do. Get you get the groceries. You know amazon's grocery thing is not robust. it's a very limited selection and generally very high prices just think of the whole paycheck influence on that. And that's why amazon is trying to morph their groceries into amazon's own grocery brand separate from whole paycheck with more competitive prices. But it's a work in progress. Where with walmart being pretty much in close proximity to ninety something percent of americans. I guess it is. The grocery prices are much cheaper than you're gonna have amazon and much cheaper from the local traditional supermarkets figure unit. Save about twenty percent on your grocery bill ordering through walmart plus you with the walmart grocery delivery tipping is expected with walmart nonfood items tipping is not part of the system so there there are nuances with it the big advantage of walmart plus over shipped and what's the other Something instacart and the other grocery delivery things is generally with those. You pay an above market price for the groceries. You're getting when you order them through one of those apps one of the participating grocery stores you're paying a different price a higher price than somebody walks in the door. The store at those grocery stores plus the delivery fees. Now you can join a membership with those but you're still paying the higher prices for the groceries then the gap between getting groceries from walmart plus and getting groceries through instacart or any of its competitors like shipped which is actually owned by target. The price gap is even larger in that case As far as what amazon offers that walmart plus does not have is the great amazon prime video streaming service the amazon music service. There's a basic music service that's included in your prime and then there's a fancy music service you have to pay for a lot of people who are Just casual music. Listeners are thrilled and happy with the amazon music service. That comes with prime. So those are achilles heels for walmart that even though it's cheaper than prime you're not getting the video or audio content. But i can't emphasize enough that day. In and day out amazon can be from moderately too much more expensive than buying from walmart. So if you are both convenience oriented and price oriented that's where walmart plus really can shine

Should Biden raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour?

Should Biden raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour?

"And why are you against the minimum wage. Well because it sets a precedent that says if anybody's willing to work for less than that they cannot. Right i mean it's the federal government inserting itself into a business arrangement between two people and the idea that somehow the minimum wage in new york city or on an alaskan Fishing boat needs to be the same as somebody working at a mcdonald's in rural mississippi I know that mississippi is the poorest eight right now. So i mean this is a big country and the federal government doesn't really have any business Getting involved in people's individual deals but if it does it at the very least should do ones that doesn't get people fired at the I think it's the government accounting office I believe is the organization they have done a nonpartisan look at this and yes the people who retained their jobs would have a better life after the minimum wage was raised however some people would lose their jobs over the course of the period of time after the minimum wage was instituted. Well and think about what it does to the people who are earning currently. So you've got the eight dollar an hour worker. You've got the ten dollars an hour worker. You got the fifteen dollars an hour worker. All of a sudden they all make fifteen bucks an hour but the one guy who is making the fifteen worked hard to get more than the eight in the ten but worked hard for ten years to get there and now he's just

Who Wins Or Loses If There's An Increase In The Federal Minimum Wage?

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

Now south park being south park but at the same time our free things fun and is free really free. I remember back in radio. We had a rule. We never did free concerts. We always charged at least five dollars. The reason being we found that if somebody put five dollars down they were a little bit more respectful. They enjoyed themselves a little bit more. They weren't as well obnoxious as if it were a free show how. He's noticed that when things were free and people were getting stuff they were always wanting more they were never satisfied now. I don't know if the figures five dollars or eight dollars ten dollars and with the way of the world now who knows if that figures twenty dollars is anything really free. Is that the first fix.

Has the Reddit brigade found a new target?

"Wines. Have the read it. Traders found a new target guidance. This is certainly an interesting space to target. It is very complicated. it is very technical. And in many instances not very liquid. And it's very binary and there are a number of these names that have huge short interests as to add so it's oil it's all of those are sort of the all the things that i think people on this platform the read it platform would be looking for then. You mentioned cassava so quickly you talked about the volume traded. I think over the last three days today obviously included trade about one hundred and eighty million or show shares. I mean it's just amount of volume over three day period given its historical norm. And you've seen the stock go from about eight dollars a share. I think it traded at one seventeen today and reverse and reverse in a meaningful way. But this isn't just the red it crowd. I mean they actually had data come out a couple of days ago in terms of the alzheimer study. There was pretty positive. I think that field this as well. The concern i would have here and i'm not endorsing. I'm i'm not making procon statement of any of these names. We're going to talk about. But they did a secondary back in november from that mistake in november thirteenth. About eight million or nine million shares secondary around eight dollars a share. Be aware that for a lot of these companies given the stock price move. This is an opportunity for these companies to do secondaries. I would imagine you'll see one here in another name that you didn't mention but is a big enough market cap that talk about not necessarily a biotech company but falls under those parameters as named like vera site which is at another ridiculous move. You can pull that one up as well. i think. it's v. C. y. t. If i'm not mistaken and there's talk that maybe a secondary might becoming there so just be aware that a lot of these stocks have had tremendous runs but you know secondaries are looming out there. Potentially you can obviously see what could happen to the stocks in the midst of one very binary a lot of these names. Just be aware of what. You're getting yourself into again quickly.

Fisher Vs. Keynes: Investing Tragedy And Triumph

"Irving fisher was born in eighteen sixty seven in the town of saugerties. New york got his phd economics from yale in eighteen ninety one and for most of his adult life he enjoyed this almost unparalleled streak of success. Yeah not just as a great economist but also as an entrepreneur and investor. Tim harford is the author of the data detective. A new book that includes a chapter about irving fisher. He was the basically the inventor of what we now call the rolodex card filing system. That made him a multimillionaire. He was a diet and fitness expert. He published a book called how to live which was the freakonomics of its day. Only sold five hundred thousand copies. He set up the life extension institute. He was a campaigner on prohibition. He was a vegetarian. Assist an astonishing a prolific campaigner and thinker and he made a lot of money in the markets for a while as the stock market in the nineteen twenties was going up and up fisher was investing more and more money into it in fact even though he was already investing a ton of his own money he was also borrowing even more money to invest in stocks so that he could boost his returns fisher was just supremely confident about his forecast that the market would keep going up confident both in his own intelligence and also in the possibility of using data and statistics to predict the future. So that's where irving fisher was right before the crash of nineteen twenty. Nine john maynard. Keynes the other. Great economists of the era got there a little differently. Canes was definitely already considered one of the great economic minds of the time and just like irving fischer canes knew. He was the smartest guy in every room. He walked into same. Yeah me too something. We all share with gains right. But unlike irving fisher john maynard. Keynes had gotten some things wrong. By that point he had been humbled by the market before he had an early investment fund immediately after the first world war that just went went bankrupt and it was fine canes raise more money went back into the market. Got everyone's cashback. Everyone lived happily ever after but he had that experience going. Oh yeah. I thought i was smart on the market. Maybe i'm not smart on the market when the crash of one thousand nine hundred nine arrive. The stock market collapsed more than twenty percent in two days and within three years it had fallen more than eighty nine percent from where it was before the crash. Both and john maynard. Keynes lost a lot of money on their investments in the crash but there is a huge difference in how they responded so after the crash fisher kept doubling down on the same investments. He even kept borrowing money to invest in the same. Losing stocks for example fisher owned stock in a company called remington rand and right before the crash remington rand stock was at fifty eight dollars share but after the crash of two three months it was twenty eight dollars. A share and fisher was borrowing money and buying more shares at twenty eight dollars for years into the crash. It was one dollars a share. That is how to be a millionaire. Lose everything maybe fisher believed that his precious data just could not be wrong or that he could not be wrong or that. His self worth was tied up in this idea that he was right. Whatever the case he couldn't change his mind and he lost everything. Canes was different kane street at his failures as a chance to learn a chance to improve his process up to the crash he'd been investing based on his ability to predict the ups and downs of the whole economy. But after the crash he decided that that was just too hard to unknowable so he changed his strategy to investing in companies that he believed had good management and he thought would go up over time no matter what the overall economy was doing. Canes made a fortune for himself and for the endowment of king's college us money he was managing one of the things he said when he was trying to raise money from his own father was win or lose. This high stakes gaming amuses me. That's that's just an amazing linked to say when you're trying to persuade someone to give you money and yet in the end it helps because he just didn't take it so personally for the past few decades. A psychologist named philip tat. Lock has studied the behaviors that lead to better forecasting being very precise predictions constantly. Checking to see if your forecasts or proving true and updating your forecast if they are not true all of these make you a better forecaster. But tim says if he had to summarize. All of this research on a bumper sticker. Full cost is better when they recognized. They might be wrong and they are asking themselves. What am i missing. What perspective having tie considered. Who haven't i talked to that sort of almost paranoid suspicion that you might have messed up. And the willingness to change your mind that leads to much better forecasting you know it sounds so obvious. Just be able to change your mind and yet in practice. People really struggle to change their minds especially about their deeply held beliefs. That irving fisher could not change his mind and john maynard. Keynes could ended up making all the difference in how they lived the rest of their lives a few months after the second world war at fissuring canes both died fisher was alone and nearly bankrupt hitting bailed out by his millionaire sister-in-law and he'd completely lost his reputation as a result of his failed forecast. It's such a tragic end to a great career. Canes died a millionaire the most famous and celebrated economists on the planet and there is a quote that sometimes gets attributed to canes that. Tim also likes to remember him by. He probably never said it but he lifted which is when the facts change. I change my

GameStop and the Short Squeeze

"Okay stacey so when you imagine that we are squirrels okay okay. An through the fall you being very responsible squirrel have been squirreling away loads of nuts for the winter. Okay all right now. I have to but i've also been keeping an eye on the weather and i'm pretty convinced that there's gonna be a nut surplus this winter and there's gonna be a lot of nuts on the market this would be the squirrel nut market precisely. Okay okay not all the other. Squirrels are responsible as you and me a lot of them. Leave it to the last minute to stock up and you end up with these shortages and consequently these very long lines at the nut highs. I think we're definitely already there. I think there are long lines at the house batting bludger with me like i say i think there's going to be a surplus of nuts this year right for whatever reason and that means i think prices are going to fall and i want to bet on that price movement which means that i won't to short the market so you're going to bet against the market for nuts as a squirrel that is exactly right. That literally sounds nets me all right so right now mixed fancy unsalted nuts. Ten bucks can't squirrels. Net of choice. Fancy unsalted nuts. Okay and i think the price of the of that collection of nuts is going to go lower and so to set up my short. The first thing that i do is go to someone who's got a load of nuts and is willing to lend me a pint or two and that person is you okay so now you are wanting to borrow my nuts that i saved. That's right and as a little fee to sweetened things. I'll give you an acorn all right okay. I'm in. I'm in so let's start with a one point bag just to see. Okay all right all right all right now. I take that point of nuts and i go to the market and sell it for ten dollars right which leaves me with a nice crisp ten dollar note and then we wait for a day or two and we wait look at that. The prices fallen Not sir eight dollars a pint okay. So you sold a pound of nuts for ten bucks and now they're worth eight bucks. That's right so i'm going to buy them back at that rate right but by them for eight dollars and of course it means i get some change from my ten dollar note. Yes you're two dollars in the black. That's exactly right so now. I've got that pint of knots which i returned to you as promised excellence and i've got two dollars of my own which i get to keep okay. So that is a successful short. That is a successful short. Okay that is great but what happens if the price goes in the other direction. Let's say you are wrong about the value of nuts this winter. Maybe there's a supply shortage price of nuts goes through the roof and suddenly like let's say all of a sudden it's like twelve dollars a pound of nuts if gustav twelve dollars out of luck right because i have to. I've got to get those nuts back to give them back to you. So i'm going to dig in my own pockets for those two dollars to make twelve dollars to get your nuts back and that means i'm going to take a two dollar loss at the whim of supply and demand except the sometimes it's not the law of supply and demand that drives the market. I mean take. This company game celebrate. This is a company that has a bunch of brick and mortar stores that sells video and computer games. It's like it's been it's under a lot of pressure like a lot of other retailers are right now which is probably why you know. Analysts have been a little skeptical about the price of its stock. Exactly supply and demand was not what drove that price up. What happened was he had a bunch of people who got together in chatrooms and these are like a lot of the day. Traders now the traditional short-selling squirrels but like another group. No or even the regular trading. So we don't know who these people are. They hang out and chat rooms and they call themselves. Things spelt pants and proto molecular. I mean we don't know who they are they could be chipmunks so basically there is sort of the traders and you can kind of rely on what they're doing and why they're trying to anticipate the prices of stocks and other things going down and then you have this other group and we're not sure who they are or what they want. Well i think a lot of them wanna make money right. And i think a lot of them. Want to put the screws to shortsellers. They just hate shortsellers. They hate and shortsellers have been betting for some time. That game stop. Stock will drop. But there's also kind of a populist thing happening here with a lot of these traitors judging by the reddit threads that they just wanna poke in middle finger at wall street. They're not the first. They're not the first and then of course all these other people who are just trading for kicks right. I mean they see the price of the stocks go up and in many cases they wanna be part of that and some of them even want to buy it the high take they want those bragging rights and what they do is to start this kind of frenzy. They spread rumors in these chatrooms. They get all fired up. And then they wait till the stock pumps and then they're also chasing it upwards and onwards and upwards which brings us to the short squeeze yes the short squeeze. What is the short squeeze. Yeah you see so when the price surges like this it means for shortsellers like me because we remember have to buy back the stalker nuts or whatever it is that we've sold in order to return them to the people who lead them to us to you me right so when we start to see prices going up and up and up frankly we start to panic right because you are going further and further into the red exactly right. Nah we're all rushing into the market to buy stock around not so whatever before the price gets too high and wipes a site and we're all doing it at the same time. Which of course drives the price even higher. All these people buying your literally being squeezed. You are literally being squeezed. I mean imagine this like a hole in a trunk and you call one hundred short-selling squirrels rushing to get through the whole stale at the same time. While the whole is getting smaller bloodbath.

go to the Braves Dodgers game NLCS review today you could get in to SunTrust park for less than ten dollars a person I know that because I got the app on my phone okay so like what I don't think baseball has lost bands because they priced people out I mean I guess in a couple of rare places that might be true not many teams played a sell out every night especially during the week so I don't think baseball's problem is that it's a game that has lost its middle income or lower income fan because it's too expensive to watch here's Brian in North Carolina he's on CBS sports radio hi Brian I'm pretty good good I got a quick question well I definitely agree with the motion role I I am part all kind of baseball softball all levels and everybody has a like you said before but I condition one universal its return runs after seven the trailing team it could be said to have to continue to buy time our games work after three into the twelve run rule in Seoul I got one quick question for you do I look like to do I want it or what what what do you mean you greet you believe in a vehicle you like or not and only reason why I bring that up is because you said a little little yonder station four times what he gets what they all have their to the deity H. yeah yeah right I mean I I I prefer baseball with a pitcher heading because I believe that all that every position just because somebody's bad at it we shouldn't just give them an out like we shouldn't have a rule in basketball or if a guy's a bit free throw shooter somebody should be allowed to replace them in one guy is designated to do that so I don't really like the promise of the rule but if it happened I wouldn't scream bloody murder if it was reversal real quick I let you go to street two reasons why I like it personally said you don't like him a lot he'll come in and pitch well liked in the picture in a real says that the light could be a bit better the pitcher hit it because it's a lot more strategy for the manager in the home run close this year mostly the fourteen turn it nine eight nine three two anymore yeah like small balls dead you're right about that Brian I appreciate your comments in your full pony CBS sports radio if you missed it Aaron Boone we play that back Brian for people that are just finding us is Aaron Boone on it bringing a mercy rule to Major League Baseball I think there would be a lot of benefits to that I think you'd probably eliminate a lot of the unwritten rules of people running there swinging at three OO pitches in in the quote unquote wrong scores have just be like Hey if you get to this point after seven innings or whatever there might be something to that some merit to that in war and worth exploring Aaron Boone Yankees manager doesn't think it's apostasy or in the front to baseball to Major League Baseball to implement a mercy rule and I agree with them I don't think he made all the best points there but its bottom line point to use one I think a spot on what do you think eight five five two one two for CBS here's Jeff in South Carolina he's on the Pony Express I Jeff Burnaby tell you what you all shoulder mortgages board lord that mercy rule which is still works for baseball baseball is great for years all we need to speed or cable all we need to build their daughter daughter daughter wearable body we're not over yet this is what we should do to change the date rape drugs so many changes reporter out and also user agents for this is not a baby boomer world anymore this is not generation X. with a shorter lifespan which was very darkness double linear world it state by our world what if you hear from it that roll restaurant at a moderate or you're just dropped out yeah let's go to the majors with it but I don't like that rule in the playoffs I mean I I I'd be okay with that I mean they don't I I've said previously in this conversation if you're just finding me that the NC double a that division one baseball has a mercy rule but they don't use it in the NC double a tournament okay so play out a wild card game or a championship series or will World Series the full nine innings if that's the compromise the you would need to get a mercy rule in play so be it I think that's where you want to like give a team in the playoffs a chance when the odds of them coming back is less than one percent because it's the end of the year okay I'm good with that here is in Pennsylvania he's on CBS sports radio a man love the show thank you yeah I I am part baseball like where your previous caller said and yeah it's it's kind of like whenever I saw the score I think it was Asher's an Orioles is like twenty yeah three is coming up feeling like what are we doing here and without a couple weeks ago as well that the cubs are playing I forget who they're playing against but you had a position player pitching and then are you guys came up about news item at the end it it just feels like kind of a clown show at that point you know it was growing up baseball was like you know great to me because no matter what you always had a chance to win and there was never a time on that so there is that that argument as well but like you said the person part of that sweet and the only game they could find was from two thousand one yeah and if people are just finding me in two thousand one the Indians were down fourteen to three to Seattle going into the seventh inning and they won the game fifteen fourteen so if the mercy rule is six innings ten runs or more I guess the Indians would've won that game if it's seven innings ten runs or more they would have they would have coming up next hour now I'm not the shy away from topics because their controversial I'm not going to shy away from topics because you know I want to be different

"My my question pertains to investing in either a raw for one K. or traditional four oh one K. this is this is the first time in my career that I've had the opportunity to choose which one you invest in right I'm sixty two years young so I can invest the maximum which I believe is about what twenty four thousand five hundred and if it's confusing to me because if I can invest post tax in the raw persist in the pre tax it seems to me that post tax investment is actually more dollars so would make more sense to invest in the raw then in the traditional for one K. so can you shed some light on that for me sure additionally when you have a four one K. it your employer those contributions generally have been pre tax meaning you get a tax deduction for the money you put into the four oh one K. plan now a days many employers are offering a Ralph option within the plan which says that when you put money in the plan there's no tax deduction for the contribution but later in retirement the withdrawals are tax free at least under current tax law so it raises the question which should you do should you put money in and get a tax deduction now or should you get a tax deduction later it doesn't matter in other words investing ten dollars now and paying the taxes later for investing eight dollars now and not paying taxes later it's the same math doesn't make any difference and that is why Congress allows you to do either one because it's not neutral from a tax perspective now we're assuming that there's no change in tax rates between now the future if that changes then so will the math but or use some showing that the today's tax rate is the same as the future tax rate it doesn't make any difference whether you pay the tax now or what do you pay the tax later the net value of your account is going to be remaining unchanged okay okay very good well I appreciate you bring clarity to the to the question so here's the way you answer it then do you believe that your tax rate in the future will be lower than your tax rate today based on the current situation I think tax rates will probably be a little bit higher in the future if that's true then you would much rather pay the tax today at today's lower rates that are used for the duck double account not the rough okay no notice I'm not saying whether I agree or disagree with you I'm simply saying based on what you said that's what you should do right right okay well again I appreciate it it's been very helpful my pleasure thanks so much for calling Frank a really appreciate it thank you very much for taking a look at that need to you can do it Frank didn't call us to triple H. planned Rick if you can call while we're doing the show no problem you can just send me your audio clip use your smartphone to record your voice and send it via email to ask Rick Rick OpenDoc com that's what did here's his question well Rick my name's herb and thank you for taking this question recently you said that social security should be no more than thirty to forty percent of someone's expenses in retirement I am now retired in my social security is about forty five percent of our expenses when my wife retires within about two years our combined social security will be about seventy percent of our expenses seems to me that the more that so security covers our expenses the list we need to draw from our investments please clarify thank you yes we're talking about two different things there's a difference between how much of your expenses social security will cover and how much of your expenses you are dependent on for social security to be able to allow you to pay for there's a difference there so yeah it's great that you don't have to touch your investments because you're getting income from social security that's very different from saying without social security wouldn't be able to afford it in other words you're the poster child you have a lot of money in investments that sounds like an a relatively small amount of need lifestyle wise you're doing a good job of it not spending a lot of money relative to your investments that's great so the fact that your expenses are largely being covered by social security is fine but that's not the way it is meant to be for most folks knows what we discover is that according to the national statistics for more than sixty percent of American retirees they get most of their money from social security meaning without social security they would be in poverty that's what you want to avoid so you're doing it correctly and die wish everybody else was as well so look at your own situation you know how much money you need on a monthly basis to support your lifestyle where is that money going to come from now prior to retirement the money come from your job board jobs so that paycheck were all the paychecks that you're collecting between you and your spouse is what you use to pay your bills what happens when the paychecks stop how we use them pay your bills we are going to turn to three other sources one is a pension you're probably not getting a pension only seventeen percent of companies offer them these days so the musher working for the state or local or federal government you're not going to qualify for a pension most likely social security which pretty much everybody is qualifying for and that provides a certain amount of income the very most is around twenty five hundred a month for the.

"Sixty eight dollars give a try old habits die hard. Sometimes. Yes, they do. So two weeks ago, you had the three hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Mclaren going this week you've been driving a Mercedes SUV as fast or faster than a corvette. What's coming up next week back Terrell D next week got the twenty nineteen should be equinoxes SUV. Back in twenty seventeen when I changed over. But they've changed it again since then some so it's a vehicle that I recommend often. And so I really want to get behind the wheel and spend a week with it and see what's changing and see because there's new SUV's coming up all the time to compete with it just had the. Subaru forced or not too long ago. And I think it's gonna stack up pretty nicely against this equinoxes. So we'll see I'll spend a week with it. And then we'll take it from there is that mid size or compact, it's officially compact. But it's one of the bigger Compaq's out there period. It's it's good size. It had. I mean, it's not a third row seat SUV. But it had a lot of room in the second row seat. I recall, and so we'll see what changes they've made. And and I can tell you it selling really well. So it must be okay. But I'll give you an update on that. We'll have it out a week from Tuesday this week. We've got the Mercedes coming up in the newsletter and on the website charleen. Cleveland, Ohio, welcome. You bet my friend. How can I help you? So we are expecting our second. And I currently have a thirteen legacy. With about sixty thousand miles on it. And we're looking at. Up to an outback. So so far I either faced with the decision of buying a twenty nineteen. I'll bet around thirty five thousand dollars or I found a twenty eight teams with about twenty thousand miles on it or about twenty seven. And I'm just trying to decide you know, is it worth it? The extra money for the brand new one or. Just bite the bullet and go for it. I mean, saving the money would be nice. How long have you think you're going to keep this thing? Charlie. A while. And. The nineteen when you say thirty five is that in the Goshi aided processors at the window sticker price. No, I haven't started. I haven't gone unnoticed Dessel window sticker price on both of those were sticker prices. I haven't done any talking yet. Okay. Chances are the used one is probably that process. They're going to stick to that. Most people are these day dealers are pricing used cars, and I've seen this really come into play in the last few years, but dealers repressed and rock bottom prices. I starting hind and income and down. And and the reason for it is because it's so easy to shop on the internet nowadays, if they if they put a big price out there and start to you know. When people shop, and they pull up all the twenty eighteen super outback's in the area near the highest price gets what's going to happen. Nothing's what's going to happen. They're not going to get any calls. Emails. Nobody's coming in on it. So that's a trend that I'm seeing more and more. If you will talk to Tom flory he is the general manager at Sarah Subaru used to be park Subaru. He is one of the greatest guys that I've ever known and loves people I sent to him. He he runs four large dealerships in Akron, and yet everybody that comes in with a car pro priority pass in her hand drops what he's doing and helps them if he can get that thirty five thousand dollar went down to say thirty three. And then that twenty seven is is you're you're in that doesn't move for five thousand more. I would get the one. One that I want to get to the color that I want interior color that I want the options that you want in two thousand nineteen twenty nineteen the outback comes standard with the eyesight system in two thousand eighteen it was an option. So you're going to get that on the twenty nineteen. And if I had my family in an SUV, that's exactly what I would pick actually to be totally honest with you. I've go with Forrester. I just had the Forrester. I thought about this. Because I like how they how they are the back end opened up more me to the the problem. I have with the forester, and I'm not wearing a hat, but the problem I have with the forester is a spacial recognition business that they're using for the for the memory seats and keep your attention on the road just off. Nobody can answer my questions on where that data stored. If the car has the ability to transmit it who owns that data. And then that's one of the things that bugged me about it. Well, you know, what that might be a great question for Tom. I wish I had the answer. I don't. But if he knows he'll tell you the truth because this guy did that's all he does is tell the truth. So give him a try. Let's see if you can get that. If you can get the difference between the two down to let's say five grand or less. I definitely do it. But we don't know what's going to happen. She. You you've got one on the way. Is there a possibility that there's going to be another one following that? This is the second one. And and probably okay. So. But right now, so another one comes along and next time, it's twins. So we need to trade this thing for if you love as you'd go up to the ascent. So what one thing to consider when you're your age, and your family's growing is resale value. So the resale value on the nineteenth going to be better than the eighteen down the road. So you spend a little more front. You get it back down the road. If you need to trade within the next three to four years, and I know you don't think you will. But I learned one thing longtime ago never say never because things happen it, you know, life happens. So ask Tom, I I will tell you. If you look at the review in video did with the forester. I really liked it. Now, I haven't admitted buys towards Subaru just because they're so good the hell devalue, so well, they drop so good, and because of the safety, and and so I talked Subaru a lot, and I wouldn't want to talk you out of the out of the outback. I just happened to back hadn't changed in a few years, the Forster's fresh and brand new, and that's one of the reasons I could trust me when I tell you, Tom flory will be a guy that will be he will help you so much and he'll spend so much time with you. And he's just fantastic. So thank you for calling. Good luck with that. And and by the way, your legacy is going to have great values heart. It's it seldom you find a twenty thirteen legacy with just sixty thousand miles usually they're well over one hundred eight hundred nine to six seventy seven seventy seven eight hundred nine to six seventy seven seventy seven car pro USA dot com.
