Pre-election economy in the US compared to Europe

"The American economy with the last jobs report before the election of November of this year. The jobs report right now is James slow as more layoffs become permanent, writes The Wall Street Journal Subhead hiring gain slowed sharply headed into the fall as more layoffs turned permanent. Adding two signs that the U. S economy faces a long slog to fully recover from the pandemic. The number were given by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is 7.9. Why That's significant is at the beginning of the summer, the wags observing the artificial recession caused by the virus in the pandemic. We're saying that it was going to be a great positive for the president and the Trump Administration if that number could get under eight by election Day, but nobody believed it was possible. Well, we're under aged 7.9. However, that's a rhetorical point. And when I want to go to with Chris Is an article in the economist. This's the London based magazine. Which I recommend highly to everybody. These are the smart ones from the English school system over many decades, very smart, keen with a good sense of wit. When they write about politics, and the column asks. Why is America's economy beating forecasts, a retreat of the virus, a big stimulus and a flexible labor market? Causing faster growth compared to what compared to Europe. Compared to Latin America. Compared to Asia. Question. Mark Crests of very good evening to you. Are you surprised that London surprised at how well we're recovering from a blow that has left the See you in tatters. Good evening to you. Good evening, John not surprised at all. It's very common in travel into business in Europe that you hear the Europeans lament the US style system of fewer worker protections and other things. But you see within the U. S economy much more elasticity and resiliency because of that more lays a fair approach in Europe because of the much heavier regulation. Can the inability to said jobs or change jobs or quit it quickly. Many of the large corporations are burdened with employees or employment commitment that they cannot keep in it. Some of that large yes, it is hurting Europe specifically as well as what looks to be a second wave of the virus. The economist author. They do not sign these columns. But this is the wisdom of the Whole team is to admire our flexible labor market. What do they mean by that? Chris flexible. So in the end the European system once you have an employee in at various country by country, But if I take France's example once you have that employees if you hire them, and they finished there. Prohibition period. It's a very, very tough, very expensive to get rid of that employees. Should they not be able to perform the job, or should economic conditions change? You don't need that employee anymore. Very, very inflexible and very, very expensive labor laws in the US In many states, you have much more agility to be able to downsize the right size the business in the face of Ah business change or on issues such as the pandemic. The U. S. Employers are much more able to adjust the market conditions quickly. We're in Europe. You're stuck for months, if not years of paying off employees that may no longer be necessary. I learned from the economists that the European governments assume the payroll costs for furloughed workers. Not so here. We know this. In contrast, the people's incomes with unemployment benefits are supported by the states. There are laws you pay unemployment. Insurance ahead of time in case of layoffs. And the as the Economist writes, the reallocation of labor from dying industries to up incoming ones happens at speed that would describe your work. Exactly Chris of the workers that you have around the world. The recruits that you are come to you come from industries that are other, struggling or have been displaced or no longer have a Ah, high growth period at this moment, and they moved to where the jobs look better. Did they not have that ability in Europe to move from the slow older industries to the new ones? They have the ability to move as an employee from job to job. But the industry's if you look at what's used, as Ah example, France many of the industries whether it be Manufacturing or physical infrastructure or others. It can be very difficult, very costly. So many of these nations in Europe have built such a cost of doing business. That even California, New York would wink at and say, Maybe that's a little bit too much have gone so far that smart companies tend to navigate around those and try to have operations and more agile countries. If you look at Europe, specifically the differences in doing business between the UK and Ireland being much more like the US versus the rest of Europe. Being muchmore socialist in nature. It's very, very difficult to grow businesses and parts of Europe because they're very, very high cost of doing business. I puzzled too. They make much to do about the Sunbelt states having the spread of Corona virus, which is slowing. According to the Economist, reporting,

Across Europe, Reopening Borders in Time for Summer

"And now let's move on to professor mark van rast who is our largest and he's also a member of a group of experts is working on the exit strategy from the virus here in Belgium I'm very happy that you're joining us I see every day on TV I'm not sure how you're finding your new fame at but I but I do have a lot of questions for you and and the obvious one B. and look Europe is opening up now we seen those restrictions to be lifted how worried are you I mean do you think that the situation is better now than it was two weeks ago actually you know we're flying blind from I think every viable to Libby for rebel fired and more we are worried because we're doing things and we're counting on both the common sense for people to follow the guidelines and that most people over interpret them in their own interpretation the feeling of flying blind because we're monitoring well of course we're only going to see the impact of the allocation of the measures in while I would get then they anything happening also so it would be a little bit of I'm not looking at these numbers however always optimistic mold you think but the way we look at it and M. professor just to pick up on that you're you're socially saying in ten days and Europe will be able to know with actual data whether we could be in for round two of coronavirus in ten days that would be something we could predict an estimate it is going to be different in in every country we're not the United States of Europe yet so every country have taken their own measures and also have their own exit strategy plans so this will be probably different in the different countries and you know where an inmate you know very well Europeans are really desperate to book a holiday people want to know whether they'll be able to travel or not in your mind in your view I know the European Commission these situations are saying it could be safe don't worry just give it some time what do you think of that do you think it's a good idea to actually get on a plane to go somewhere else in July it's going to happen in July I I think for multiple reasons first of all in order to go to a country of your own borders have to be open on the borders of the other countries ask us to be open so that's not that easy we're we've been living in our own national bubble while we're a couple of months already M. as in that's not going to change the the very back of the I know that some of the countries were to be important that they're pushing through up to open the border I think that the people will be a little bit afraid to fly I think they're afraid to fly they're not going to fly with with airplanes that are going to be completely filled to capacity so that's probably going to result in an airline is locked up in the flight of more applying many of the the airlines are are pretty desperate right now many of these are some of the airline companies might not reach you can love to life without being bankrupt so it's not looking good since you're saying essentially here there's there's two different tensions you know there is the companies that are desperate to get back up and running and the want to fly but also the the virus itself that contagious if or how continues it can get but also people and you do believe that the psyche of people at this point in Europe is a we're not past that said people are still concerned and that ultimately will mean no summer you stay at home and you still take those precautions that's probably going to be the end result is flying with with a couple hundred people in the same cabin without the this the thing that people are are are used to now that's not going to that's not going to be looked upon with great enthusiasm on the other hand flying with one and a half meters distance in between is not going to be commercially possible so we're we're a little bit of a fine pair up on the other hand I don't remember thank you cations in my own country all my life only thing back all of the situations that we didn't really necessarily that we're flying all over the planet it's fun but is it necessary mole and professor I wanna get your thoughts on the exit strategy I know you're working very closely with the Belgian government I'm sure you're working with European authorities true but what do you make of it because you do see a lot of countries are saying look we're not going to ask anyone to self isolate when they come into our country others are saying you will have to because we're still worried and in terms of just how quickly everyone is doing this differently it does feel that Europe is not very coordinated and the we were exiting the peak of the crisis what do you make of it we'll just look at the United States their motor coordinated either in the different struggles and we're not even the United States of Europe so it's bound to be well the Mets as normal yes and the and just very quickly you know we're still kind of thinking ultimately and we'll talk about the economic impact will talk about the implications of that has some people you know these measures have been very tough on people to be locked up at home for weeks what do you think there could be a scenario where we come to September fall kicks and we could see another pick up in the number of cases and we could be back potentially to a lockdown because that is a question the European governments are asking themselves can this happen again in two months well we have decades of experience where respiratory infections or back at it the second of September and then that gets progressively worse until you get the flu season and then it's a complete disaster if this would coincide with covert nineteen being present that would not be until on the other hand it is a bit different because now we will have more testing and compact racing and hopefully if we do that in in electric that is available hopefully we can we can slow down and that the Democrats third then we could in round one so the risk really is still there but we are betting on is that at this point we know the virus better we know how it works but we've also taken the social distancing measures the masks and everything that comes around and that's that's essentially what would change in around two of the virus which you're arguing it's still likely or could happen it is it is definitely likely we'd we would wish not to have an influence of fetal every year and we vaccinate people leaving and and yet every year there is an excellent season so it's two two weeks completely avoid the second of the second round of wealth will be playing teams that might be a tall order and just very quickly as the final question in terms of you know the vaccine that is still the biggest question mark I know there's almost a global competition China and the US Europe to try to get to the facts and quickly with the knowledge that you have the European institutions in the research that's being done how likely is it that we get this and the next year the global competition the global collaboration and competition that's a little bit in the past of course people are competing but still the more collaborating not competing yes we will give that up but it won't be that that early some people have hoped that by the end of two thousand twenty that would be a vaccine yeah that would be candidates faxing but they will not be enough production to colleagues and even part of the world so that is a liability Canary all it all will be twenty twenty one before we have the vaccine that can be that can be deployed just tell your what professor thank you very much for joining us and saying Brady Dr we hope to have you on the show many more times with hopefully better

Europe Is Burning U.S. Wood As Climate-Friendly Fuel, But Green Groups Protest

"World leaders are gathering at a U. N. climate summit in Madrid this week to talk about how to reduce greenhouse emissions in the search for alternatives to fossil fuel. Some some countries have now turned to one of the oldest energy sources around would some are importing from the United States calling it clean and renewable but some environmentalists. Say this makes no oh sense. NPR's Dan Charles has the story on a soggy field in eastern North Carolina. Jason Too and his crew loggers cutting trees threes and sorting the logs into piles depending on their size. And what kind of would they are poplar. Sweet Gum Elm right there. Some piles will go into plywood. Some will become puffy absorbent fiber in baby diapers and then there's the least valuable pile the small limbs tops of hardwood trees. It's basically a trash. Should we would've normally hauled that back out in the woods and just left it. But now there's a new market for that Wood Pellet Mills they've expanded across the southeast over the past decade. They'll take this would crush it and pressed into little pellets. Ready for burning fuel the landowners. Getting some by we're getting some production is just an all around good deal do most of these pellets. Millions of tons each year. We'll get shipped to Europe where burned in power plants because some European governments are offering financial subsidies cities to burn these pellets. Instead of say coal it's supposed to help fight climate change. Here's Seth Ginther. Executive Director of the industry group that represents Wood Pellett companies. The carbon benefits are tremendous burning. Would also biomass does release lots of carbon dioxide the greenhouse gas. But the idea behind had the subsidies is you can let farce grow back. And as they do they'll recapture the carbon dioxide from the air and stored in their branches and roots again so it's considered renewable lable just like wind or solar the European Union literally just pass something known as the Renewable Energy Directive to and biomass sustainable biomass ass was unequivocally included as part of what can meet renewable energy goals but environmental groups are challenging that decision in court. They say the idea that large scale. wood-burning is carbon neutral is based on bad math and to explain exactly why Adam collect from the environmental group Dogwood Alliance takes me to another patch of land North Carolina near the town of Williamson. I know it doesn't look like much but we're gonNA take a walk. It's covered with bushes and little trees as maybe ten feet tall. In the south. We call it a briar patch but yet on paper this is a forest for years ago really was a forest with big trees rees then it was locked some of it went to make wood pellets. So let's count the carbon emissions accurately. Colette says when the big trees were cut they stopped opt capturing carbon dioxide from the air that benefit was lost at least temporarily and some of the carbon they'd previously stored was released into the air when the wood pellets were burned and as tree roots decomposed. But you won't see any of that in the official calculations of greenhouse emissions. He says none of it's ever been counted in any of our like emissions counting in the US or in Europe that's because the forest eventually will grow back and recapture that lost carbon but it could take a century for that to happen now. Seth Ginther from the US Industrial Pellet Association says his industry should not be blamed for those carbon emissions because wood pellets are not the reason forests wrists are cleared. These are lands that are being harvested for Sawed Timber for housing for paper and for other things what we're taking is is the the byproduct of that in facto independent forestry experts. Say That's not completely true. Their data shows that the wood pellet industry is competing for some of the same. Would that might go for making paper or diapers and it's pushing up prices for that. Would Adam Collette from Dogwood. Alliance thinks it's persuading some small landowners to harvest their trees. You have have more knocks on those doors. More telephone calls saying hey I'll give you X.. Number of dollars for your trees. What Colette wants is for officials to knock on those doors with a different different message encouraging landowners to maintain forests expand them? Our forests are young. They're degraded and what that means. Is that the potential Henschel to suck carbon out of the atmosphere of force in the U._S.. South is enormous. Those forests are some of the best climate solutions. We have he says if they keep growing Dan. Charles N._p._R.

K. can cut a deal to avoid a messy brexit there even stories in Germany that the thought that they might increase government spending both the fight a climate change and to fight a recession I don't think any these are sure things and I'm not overly optimistic but what politicians do in the next couple of months could determine whether the slowdown degrades into recession or not and in particular it sounds like what you're saying what politicians outside of this country to exactly there's a lot that happens inside the U.

"So hopefully, this will be enough to convince the Iranian leadership to stay in the deal, and and to wait out the Trump administration, but Bora, you know, there's no denying Iran's Revolutionary Guards are involved in these stabilizing activities across the mid east and Iranian agents have even been busted trying to assassinate dissidents in Europe itself. So why are these European governments trying to? Help iran. Well, I don't think they want Iran getting a nuclear weapon on top of all the activity that you just mentioned. Let's remember what this deal was about. It was never about changing everything about Iran. You know, there was a hope that it could be a foundation for more negotiations for other changes in Iranian activities. But it was a nuclear deal any Ron has been abiding by that deal as our intelligence community just announced yet again this week. Even though the president doesn't seem to want to believe it, do you think the US might retaliate against countries and companies that use this new insects marketplace? I don't think so because initially are the trade will be confined to things like food and medicine, which are not sanctionable. But you know, this is a precedent that the US has to worry about because if it works it will diminish the power of the United States to really control what goes on in the international financial system. The power of the dollar will be diminished and others will be looking for ways to get around. Round US sanctions, Barbara Slaven Iran expert at the think tank.

"We've seen reporting recently about certain bangs, actually being given permission to will being requested by European governments to continue relationships with Iran and be a vehicle. So we may not see the growth of special purpose vehicles with with Iran. And to me, I, that is the only where I can really see the Europeans can honor their agreement with around, provide access to financial market. So in a bizarre way that is potential. This could be better for ran in in in a strange way from access to banking because they were finding very difficult to move funds. Anyway, they were finding the international banks were not at the table. They weren't. They weren't coming back in the way that they had envisaged and that poor Bley would have remained the case anyway. But now what we now, what we're seeing is what we were seeing during the period days is that the European governments were still very much. Trying to encourage the international banks to come to European banks to come back to the table. I think what they're now recognizing those things come back to the table, so they need to back fill. So Iran may potentially. I mean, who knows? But the maze potentially have some new avenues created for them because the European governments and indeed, number of the other international governments have to find a way of managing their own foreign policy decisions which are separate to the US. So that's an option or scenario potentially, whether that comes forward. So no, I don't know. I know there is a lot of thinking being given in European capitals on is, is there any viable way that you could do that? What type of sectors would be particularly important? The pharmaceutical sector is a prime warning to that's a very big sector in Iran, and there's a lot of EU, Iranian pharmaceutical trae. Now. Now, some of that would be carved out under humanitarian type of provision, but you still need to pay find payment gateways for that. You know, it's still complex even if there are some provisions. So. So that is a scenario. So you have to basically you have the scenario that Iran does something and the deal falls away because of a rans behavior. So the e you have to impose bay reluctantly sanctions. You have the scenario where the Iranian somehow keep into the deal and the EU twined find some payment corridors you. You've then have a scenario where you the the international community and other international governments do not play ball with the US and then the US dot sanctioning, those those companies, etcetera. And and we are starting to see the growth of countersanctions here. So that's a really someone out there should do a dissertation on counter sanctions because I think that's an area that's going to become so much bigger in the future yet. I mean, we're seeing. We're seeing that now we sing a lot of governments think about, you know. How do they protect themselves, you know, and the the blocking regulations type of counter sanction Cantu sanction. It's just wherever that would get used. So you know, I, there was so many variables in the security in the region. I think Syria will impact what happens around Iran as well. I think the Russia of rainy in Syria dynamic is another factor play. I think also it depends practically what happens with career as well, because governments only have so much bandwidth to sign should do things. So if you get distracted by Nova major crisis, then you move onto to to that one again with Russia, what happens there. So I think from geopolitical sort of stance, you can't look around in isolation, entwined predict what will happen of Iran. Solely as that's how will move forwards. I think they'll just be too many other factors at play here, which is what is making it so difficult for everyone just in.

Little before for ninety five million in two thousand less than four years after President Trump. Paid forty one million so he more. Than double this money Donald Trump junior in two thousand eight stated at a real estate, conference in New York, and I quote here Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross section of a lot of, our assets and quote Donald Trump tried. To build a Trump Tower, in Moscow for thirty years even tweeted in 2013 Trump Tower Moscow is next that send quotes in. Twenty fifteen answering a. Question from indicted Russian operative and alleged spy Maria Putina candidate Trump made clear as desires with Russia's stating I would get along well. With Putin and that I don't think we need the sanctions now the Russian ambassador to. The United States has said the president. Made in, this is his quote in portent verbal agreements with President Putin and he seems. To know more about More about Helsinki and what happened there than the Senate Foreign Relations committee as we saw in Helsinki and throughout his presidency and. The campaign this president extremely sympathetic to the very Russian government that attacked and continues to, attack our democracy and those of our allies it's a fact of political. Life today that many Americans are. Concerned about the unthinkable that a US president could have compromised compromising relationship with a foreign power president clear. This all up in three simple ways releasing his tax returns, and those of the Trump organization and the taxes from the various family businesses some of. Which, we don't even know about after Helsinki do you think that the American people deserve to know what's in President Trump's tax returns and, business interests that are intertwined with Russia I'm going to try to stay out of the same. Political circus that you and I ended up and last time I was sitting here and simply respond by saying this same president with which you seem to express such deep concern is engaged in a massive defense buildup which threatens, Vladimir Putin's regime he instructed us to put together a nuclear posture review that, has said Vladimir Putin on his ear because of its. Robust and the recapitalization of our nuclear program he's kicked sixty spies we've been Kaspersky eleven billion dollars in the sense secretary you've already I haven't even begun to scratch but you've already you have an answer my question so let me try it a little different way wouldn't you want to know as secretary of state I mean I I'm taking you in, your sincerity here's secretary of. State whether all these Russian financial interest guards and others are part of the decision making of the president I mean wouldn't you want that out in the open. And understand what went. On its Helsinki it sits in easy kinda yes or. No question I don't need secondhand understandings what President Trump. Is instructing, his administration to do to push back against rest I have first hand understanding well? And and directed I'll let me ask the question Post stream to we've got four by thirty out of NATO the that also is a. Big setback for rush I mean, I'm happy to. Continue the list I'm I'm happy But. I I will I will submit the entirety of this ministrations, actions against Russia for the record if I might. Please to, back a truck up and get. On in here Trump. Has failed to keep his promise to disclose his tax returns every presidential candidate since. Richard Nixon has disclosed Jimmy, Carter even sold his peanut farm. To avoid a conflict of interest the situation with President Trump's. Potential foreign policy conflicts of interest is unprecedented, and unacceptable, and under. The emoluments clause I think it's unconstitutional as well but let me just ask. A couple of questions about Helsinki you talked about what you were tasked with The director of national intelligence coach stated that at the Aspen. Security. Forum, that he did not know what happened during the one on one meeting in Helsinki to the president personally debrief you on this conversation are you one hundred percent confident that you know everything that President Trump discussed with President Putin that's very Risi yes or no if you don't want an answer at all move, onto the next one yes or no I'm very confident that I received. A comprehensive debriefing from President Trump could okay now do you know for a fact. Whether President Trump or President, Putin discussed any investments and Trump. Properties or any Trump projects such as the previous attempt to. Build a Trump real estate project in Moscow Senator again I'm going to try and stay out of the political circus snow but where were you were? You tasked with that she gave us a, list here to talk about, American foreign policy. Today I've attempted to articulate president trouble all business interests are entwined sir. With. Our, foreign policy yes a foreign policy has led to a massive defense build up a nuclear posture review that has frightened Vlad Putin sixty spies I mean two hundred nine thousand nine hundred and thirteenth sanctions Let me also ask you about an an?

We also talked about what would you. Believe it's the most urgent national security threat I. Do but but, but having, said that I don't recall the precise.

I think the country would be well equipped to deal with one or two or even ten, but this is said twenty two large fires. The have already cost losses of nine hundred million kroner that's a seventy five billion euros are seventy five billion pounds rather. So it's it's an extremely serious situation and there is no relief inside from for mother nature. There is no sustained rainfall expected at the moment. So really Sweden is dependent on on its neighbors to help. Indeed, Sweden has help from a number of European governments in order to guess a group of these devastating failures. What has the response been like for this is the amazing thing, and I think one can have a diversity of opinions about the u.. But in this case, the u. has really come. Through. So there's something called the civil protection mechanism within the use. So if a country's affected by some sort of natural disaster can go to the USA we need help and then the court and coordinates that response.

Denmark ascent fight, fifty five until have trucks. It's it's amazing. Really this this response, very generous response from US allies and Sweden. We'll have to reimburse him, but without that in no money in the world could buy that sort of. Equipment and and obviously manpower to deal with the fires. So it's really an incredible response exactly unto how often has this year you civil protection mechanism. How often has it been used? But it's it's regularly as by this is the largest mission has ever accomplished, and it's still working on it, of course. And by the way, if I could add, that's the Perenco satellite, which isn't a use athlete is providing the Swedish government's with with updated assessment maps of of the of the fire. So that's an additional service. You get this in a you member. And so it's the largest mission as I said so far for for this. Crisis management center, and I think we'll see more of it. I mean, you've heard there are serious fires in in Greece, and as climate change continues, we'll see more of that and and you members will have to come to the rescue of their allies even more often than they have until now told us this collaboration between all these firefighters from different countries were how experienced is the European Union organizing something like this? Well, that's very good question. So it's it's one thing sending firefights, but then how do they integrate themselves into the existing response by the local firefighters and so far it seems to have gone well. But one has to remember that, for example, the polish firefighters had to bring their own tents and quick movement and food and and worked to simply not to be burdened to this. We just call so you can't derive just attract to save, gave us water and.

"European government of emmanuel macron in france seems highly unlikely but finally i think the crucial thing in the longer term for paneuropean banking consolidation general is when you talked to the bank bosses what they say is really an essential ingredient to allow those kind of deals to have the benefits they would need is the completion of yours banking union in particular the creation of a common deposit guarantee scheme which would allow for the free flow of bank liquidity and capital across borders within the euro zone and the election of frayed of populist government in italy just puts that back and stymies that prospect for the foreseeable future so i think those negative factors weighing against such deal happening anytime soon let me bring rachel sanderson now from milan rachel thanks so much for joining us what's your perspective what's interesting if we look at the timing and the speed of change we've seen with the political situation big for sports deals in the past initially historic taking place during a government into 'regnum so at least been between governments and let's say this time last week is still looks like there was a possibility we might be between governments for a period of time if you recall about this time law sweet discussions whether we were going to get another technocratic government that stage i think he looked to bankers in milan and also bankers in france let's say bank in germany that they was a possibility of europe is going to get one of these windows where we've seen deals attempts in the post atlantia which then without a throttle with a baptist in spain right one of years ago which was eventually blocked by left wing governments so.

"Well i travelled to ethiopia which is a particularly interesting case study for this project i think in that it is the country perhaps most synonymous in the western mind with african famine now i was not even alive during the famines of the 1980s and yet one of the first things i remember knowing about antioqia is that this is a place that had terrible famine that needed massive outside intervention from the west just in order to survive and now the story is almost a complete one eighty in ethiopia the european government manages more of its own drought relief then i think any other in the region possibly with the exception of kenya and it has an extraordinary early warning system it has an extraordinary drought management program and just has become a massive massive regional success so wall ethiopia was and has been experiencing the exact same weather as its neighbours south sudan somalia it has not risen to the same level of crisis there as it has in in its neighboring countries in large part because of a very muscular very smart government led intervention in its of course it's not an uncomplicated one because as we know ethiopia is not a democratic country it has a quite repressive government and so we can chat more at some point about the effects that might have on on drought relief but we really wanted to look for this series at at what's going rights and ethiopia has been a major success story in the region.
