'Eurotrash' Author David Harsanyi Shares His Thoughts on Brexit
"Welcome back to one on one with mitigated columnist David harsanyi. Well, let's grasp the nettle by the thorn Brexit. What does Brexit mean? Is it the last saving grace? Is it the Hail Mary? Or is it irrelevant in terms of the Euro trash ideas of the continent? Because at the end of the day, it's not the continent. It's the UK and it's the UK rejecting the bad ideas. Well, what is the geo strategic or historic import of those 17 million breaths saying thanks, but no thanks. Now, as you know, the British have always been a poor fit I think in the European Union or fit, the French didn't really even want them to be part of it initially. They are far more far less controlled than ever took on the currency. They're more free market oriented in general. The British are my favorite my favorite people in Europe because we come from them. We are their spawn. We have there. It's their ideas that made America great. I think they manifested in more better ways here in the long run and the British sort of abandoned many of them, but in general I'm a fan and I'm a fan of Brexit. But does it really change much? I don't think so. I mean, the so called conservatives in Britain are just in Europe, there is no real ideological right. There is a nationalistic right, perhaps. There is sort of a status right. But there aren't very many classical liberals on the right. There are some, I'm not saying, but when you have these governments, it's usually just once status party against another, which is what's happening now, probably in Britain for the most part. So I don't think it changes much in the trajectory of Europe itself. Obviously, it's different. I'm a bigger fan of Britain than Germany, but in the end, neither cold a torch to hold a candle to the United
'Eurotrash' Author David Harsanyi and the Joke That Is European 'Tolerance'
"Welcome back to the author of Euro trash, David her son. Let's talk about tolerance. The leftists or the elitists in D.C. and the bike coastal areas in the United States seem to have this never ending love affair with Europe. They see themselves as tolerant. How tolerant is Europe today. I'll just tell one story that may flabbergast the listeners, but I'm sure you can give other ones from across the continent where the British police are actually policing hate speech to the extent that if you say something that is not politically correct, you may find police officers knocking on your door because of something you put on Facebook. Not inciting a crime, but simply because some groups of minority felt disenfranchised by your words. David, talk to us about just how tolerant Europe has lately become. Well, I have stories in that in that regard too, but I think first, I'll just talk about the insanity of anyone believing that Europe is more tolerant than us. It's simply an incredible thought to even grasp on to because there is literally not one ethnic minority that is properly assimilated into European cultures. I mean, there is generational poverty and high unemployment in Germany from Turkish immigrants that have been there for since the 1950s. It just goes from generation to generation. In France outside of major cities like Paris, there are just huge ghettos of North African immigrants. We have never been assimilated into society. In America, I live near D.C. here. I have neighbors from all over the world in all kinds of situations in fact from situations that they would be killing each other if they were in Pakistani is living next to Indians, et cetera. I mean, the idea that America is not tolerant is absurd. We are, of course, imperfect, of course, we have things to fix. We're human beings and all of that. But as a system goes, there has been no place more welcoming to other people. We all know this because we're all different people in a way. And we all accept a certain set of ideals that allow us to live together in peace. That is not really the case in most European
What Is 'Eurotrash'? Author David Harsanyi Tells Us
"But he is now the author of Euro trash. Why America must reject the failed ideas of a dying continent. David harsany welcome to one on one here on America first. Thank you so much for having me. Appreciate it. All right, so we're gonna dive deep into why you wrote this book and what you have to tell Americans. But let's start with, you know, the taxonomy. You've got to start with the definitions. What is Euro trash? Well, it's many things. I think it has a layered a granular meaning. The first, of course, is the book concentrates on Euro files here in America who believe that Europeans are elites academics, pundits, newspaper editors who believe that Europe does things better than we do. I think that I'm calling those policy trash. And maybe the people who love Europe, you know, in that way as well. Obviously, it's not about the average European person, but rather the people who run Europe, the people, the ideas that propel modern Europe right now and just generally the idea that we have to be more like them, which I think is severely

"Hello everyone, and thank you for tuning into the weekly report Europeans are waking up to government covid tyranny. Why are we still asleep tens of thousands of Germans marched through Berlin on Saturday proclaiming day of freedom and demanding an end to government mandated facemask and social distancing. The UK and Netherlands also saw a huge protest against their governments to radical actions in response to the coronavirus outbreak according to media accounts, Berlin protesters held signs reading we are being forced to wear a muzzle. Natural defense instead of vaccination and we are making noise because you are stealing our freedom. Good for them the New York Times tweeted that the masses of Berlin demonstrators we're all Nazis and conspiracy theories because the paper of record really want us to believe there were perhaps a million Nazis active in the streets of Berlin. Wouldn't that be alarming? The fact is, Europeans, are realizing that our government mandated lockdowns did little or nothing to protect them from the virus while causing economic catastrophe and untold human suffering. They likely looked around and noticed Sweden which never locked down its economy rejected face mass and kept us restaurants and other places of business open. A fair any worse than the countries that have been turned into air prisons for much of the year in fact, Sweden lower death rate from the virus. Then strict lockdown states like the UK and France. No wonder people are starting to get angry. Unfortunately while the Europeans are waking up, Americans are still asleep as our freedoms continue to be trampled while Europeans demand and then to government tyranny here we see states miniscule new deaths returning to lockdown it is as if all the wannabe tyrants from mayors, governors are finally realizing their secret dreams ruling by decree their dreams are nightmares, New Jersey, governor feel Murphy puts citizens on notice that he will lock the stain down if people dare to go outside without a face mask or even to have guests inside their own houses. What. kind of politician puts his own constituents on notice? It is not as if the experts even looking into treatments for the viral infection doctors who report their own successful experience treating ovid patients with hydrocare Quinn, for example, are ridiculed, censored and even fired from their jobs. The rush to silence America's frontline doctors last week, and to disappear there video down the memory hole should terrify anybody still believes in free speech. No, they say we must keep lockdown and mask. Until we have a vaccine, the US government is dumping billions of dollars into a vaccine that may be less than sixty percent effective to prevent a virus that has something like, Hey, ninety nine, point eight, percent survival rate. What kind of math is that how many may be harmed more by the vaccine than help? We probably will never know because the US government has just granted big Pharma immunity from liability claims. If the vaccine produces damaging side effects, they keep moving the goalposts posts to keep us terrified and isolated I. It was body counts and then cases the numbers have been so widely off that is hard to trust any reporting. People are getting angry they are confused. They are facing an economic depression of historic proportions. The, worst of all, the air watching, as Leviathan, government snatches every last bit of freedom. Three cheers for the Europeans that's hope America wakes up soon. Thanks for listening..

"Is similar to what you may know from paypal or other payment options. And this account can also hold money when there is a refund. Meaning the merchant initiates by our interphase refund. Call to US wants to. Customer has informed emergent at. He doesn't like to shoes or shoes. Don't fit. And we will then just credit the amount to to customers pay cash account. And from there he can either transferred to a bank account or use it for consecutive pay cash payments in the future, and is there actually an upper limit to how much I can spend with pace cash? Yes so do very close. Look of the regulatory bodies and Law Enforcement Institution on cash in general, and even worse out of their perspective for cash online. We comply with all the AML. Requirements so. What we have currently in our product is maximum transaction volume of one thousand euro per transaction, and also we have cumulated volume of customer in timeframe, so the monthly or annually, which depends on how good we already know the customer, so how well the KYC processes advanced meaning when you first do your first transactions and we have dated your email address and phone number you can spend. Spend up to two thousand five hundred euros in a year, and if you WANNA spend more with pay cash, and we actually want to know you a little bit better, so you have to make four Kyc so-called full due-diligence, and once we have insurance. Did you are the one who you claim you are You can spend up to two thousand five hundred euros every month with pay cash, okay? In Europe and North America where pay cash is available. There isn't such developed market for online cash payments. How large do you guys figure? The market is for this kind of payment. Get a lot of people ask me a lot about the Latin. America Asia Africa I. Totally. Get the cash part of things but why Europe and North America. And actually the target group we face. Your is bigger than many of us may think. So I already mentioned, shoppers did are really concerned about security as well as people with insufficient access to banking services and the letter alone account for more than one hundred, thirty million in continental Europe, but there's also a use case where even you and me could become the target group for pay cash. Just imagine if we leave now. The ECOMMERCE part for a second and imagine you have a bank account with a one of the new challenge banks like. Bank or revolution, and these business models are by default ninety five percents online only, but there's one thing all of these revolutionary banking systems cannot ignore which is cash and the amount of cash in circulation in the euro-zone increases by almost eight percent every year, since two thousand and two, so it's far from getting relevant and these businesses while the withdrawal side. Side is mainly covered with any kind of cards to issue. There's still the question of how do we actually handled the posits a? How do you get cash money onto your bank account and with our solution with pay cash, we actually offer also those customers and their end customers, a truly international solution to load cash onto for example online bank accounts without the. The need of walking into a competitive bank branch, so for these kind of use cases, not only security secrets, or on the banked people are into target group of paces cash, but you and me could be. That's basically also one reason why we concentrate on on European and North America. That's really interesting. Actually hadn't heard about that feature of cash. See you can. Can actually go to shop hand over money, and then it would be transferred to your pay. Save Cash Account. Would you get then transfer to a bank account well, not quite so for example if we would work with challenge bank, and they have their customer relationship why they're banking APP on their phone, and the offer an option, which says deposit cash and. The customer would press deposit cash. You most likely be ask okay. How much do you want a deposit? And then we would for this customer of this particular bank generators bar code the cash barcode, which tend the dean consumer could used to go to one of our payment. Points present the Barcode pay the money, and like you would pay for your pair of shoes from the earlier example, you would actually credit this or deposit dead money on your bank account so Robert How exactly would this cash deposit service work with pay cash? Do I have to have a certain bank? No actually it all starts at the merchant side so similar to the retail example. We had to video. When you check out. You presented with all the options. It would work similar. Leave for for any kind of bank or challenge bank, so you would have your APP. You would select the option I want to deposit. Cash would eventually define an amount. You would like to load and in the next step we would generate for this particular customer and Amount Barcode, which he didn't can take to one of our payment points have it scanned? They're paid via amount cash and soon as that's. That's done. It's going to be debited or credited to his bank account. I can fast that using pay cash with the bank is an interesting idea. It's that I had actually thought of before. What other kind of industries are you guys looking at targeting with basic? Jeffrey tried to either create benefit for a merchant or Silva problem. So while there's pretty clear value proposition towards financial services. It's just described accessing the huge amount of cash out there and digital. Is it the other industries such as for example utilities where we would solve the problem because a lot of utilities in the European? Economic area have an obligation to accept cash in order to not discriminate people who, for whatever reason do not have the ability to pay their bills with any other mean like bank transfer a credit card. So they have to have a cash option and currently solvent with having their own outlets, and we would enable them to use pay cash to decentralize their cash collection network outsource the cost factor of it and make it more convenient, forty and consumer so there we would solve. A problem entered US operational costs, the utility area, and the third pillar we look at is the one we also had before is typical e-commerce market where? Where we would offer merchants D only payment option which addresses one hundred percent of the target group independently of any kind of other payment options they may have. Everyone has access to cash. And now we enabled also ecommerce merchants to address everyone with a cash payment option, and who are the people using pay cash? Do you have any information about if it's male female? What aged skews towards and what? They're actually buying with cash? So in contrast to pace as card, which is a payment option, which is very popular in younger generations, and where we address a lot of the Gamer and Gambler community, the people who use pay safe cash, and also was one of the intention we had in. Mind is much broader in terms of H. in terms of social background and I think as the as the examples we discussed already show the typical pay save cash user is hardly to pin down because it strongly relates to. The merchants offer pay safe cash while with the. We may address to security seekers which are. Like on the the older side of the spectrum and people who don't have any other choice to pay with it on the financial services in challenge, our bankside, we may address their customers, which are rather younger tech Savvier, but still have access to cash obviously. And with the Utility case, we actually address everyone who needs.

Countries that are under banked like in Latin America, but how does it the actual technical side of it? Work is from a user experience point of view. It's quite similar to the process. You're already familiar with, so you go online. Select the products and goods. You would like to purchase, and eventually you are asked how you would like to pay, and you are presented with all the payment options you have and merchant who offers pace save cash. Cash will just be one additional option at this point in time, so you will see an option to to ask you how you want to pay cash for your purchase and wants to customers select that option. we generate a barcode for this particular purchase and amount. And this Barcode, this customer can then take to one of our payment partners or payment points where we provide a very dense network off around. Fifteen thousand payment points in currently twenty four countries predominantly in Europe, and a customer just simply presents the bar code in the payment point for scanning it is scanned by determined like any other products like a box of milk, and the customer will be asked for g amount, and that's it. It's done once. You successfully paid this scan barcode at the off line. Shop your online. Online purchase has just been successfully paid with cash now. Does someone have to just run down to the corner marketing immediately after clicking the Bible or is there a little bit of a gap there? There's of course gap, and this gap is actually manageable by the merge, or the shop offers pay safe cash, so the Barcode has a certain validity time the time between the. The creation, and when it needs to be paid and the merchant Kansas side how long this should be, and the requirements vary depending on the nature of the product, so you retail shops prefer more shorter time for payment as they need to reserve the product in the back end, while other customers like for example, charities offer cash as a donation for him or want their customers. Customers to be able to pay the Bar chords over over days and weeks, and maybe even month so the time is manageable and flexible, based on the merged entity transactions and more, we see currently on average for all over customers, and when I say customers I mean merchants, the average time between creation and payment over Baracuda is around four and a half hours so rather short. Once the cash is handed over at the shop. Does the merchant automatically have a warning that it's been paid, or is there also a little bit of a delay there? Well, we will informed emergent in almost real time of successful payment, so we we have a short period of time which we call the grace period of a couple of minutes on more than five minutes at the point of sale, where may happen something for some reason to transaction needs to be cancelled because customer changes, mind or not enough money in his pocket, or for whatever reason so we have this little security buffer at the US, and after that we will inform the merchant at turns. Action has been successfully done. or perform, and he can ship the product so really. It's almost the exact same time frame as it would be. If someone was purchasing with credit card online correct and the beauty of it is from that moment on when we get the notification from the US that the money has been paid. We also guarantee one hundred percent of that payment to the merchant. So then we are actually liable for all the money arriving at the merchant switching a little bit security here you'd mentioned already that for consumers security online purchases is a massive and pay cash is a really good means of controlling the information that they. For merchants, it's a little bit trickier right so how merchants protected with pay, said Gosh there's one important aspect when you pay with cash and not credit card for example or with bank transfer. There's absolutely no risk of chargebacks. So once is money is paid. There's no or when you pay transaction with cash. There's no option to use fraudulent financial data or stolen financial data, so the merchant with this payment method is one hundred percent protected again any kind of chargebacks, plus we guarantee all the money which we collected for emerging and is this provides an extra security layer for the merchant in terms of fraud. and also we will monitor on our systems, the each and every transaction for suspicious behavior. Therefore we! We can be pretty short at the transactions we have, and we conduct with pay cash with the learnings. We generated from Pay Save Card. Are Almost for free, so let's say that I went. Online and I go to Amazon. I bought a new pair of shoes I tried to shoes on at home. They don't actually fit I. paid with pay cash. How do I return my goods and giving back so? So, returns and refunds are handled also via pacers cash. That's one of the advantages over other cash payment options like cash on delivery, for example, because with pay safe cash upon the first payment, a customer does with pay cash. We create an account for him, so he just needs to enter some personal information, and we create an account which.

"Hello everybody and thank you for tuning into the liberator report with me today. Daniel McAdams. But he's not into studio and we are connected but he will participating being Daniel. Welcome to our program. Good morning our you very well and we're ready to talk about something going going on in the news right day dealing with With Iran as as so often happens and that has to do with how the Europeans have been dancing around this whole issue. You of the JCP When we got out of course we blame the the the Iranians for it which was You know fake news and the Europeans hinted well we shouldn't get out of. This is a pretty good deal. We should be training. You know trading with Iran and they made their arguments for this in which sounded like well maybe there will be some dissension but There was not a lot of optimism on our part that that would be that would happen because the announcement now is. Guess what they're capitulating. They are yielding trump. Trump says his idea strong American nationalism is is that we use sanctions wholeheartedly in teach people lessons and it can be almost anybody now Europeans. He's threatening if you guys don't come with us. We're going to put sanctions on you to even if you are our European allies so That meant that the Europeans had to make the decision and yesterday they made that decision and that is elicited. It'll a lot of chaos in this relationship On what will come next. Yeah it's remarkable Dr Paul for how the European leaders like Murkland macron. Pretend that they can't stand trump they can't stand doing business with them They always bow the always dance. When told the dance by the US and as you point out when unilaterally pulled out of the deal negated the deal The European said well. We're not gonNA renege on our on our deal we're going to. We're going to find a way we're going to continue in the whole deal is you know was simply too Provides an extra safeguards because of all the claims False of course Iran was pursuing a nuclear weapon not even our CIA believing that they were but this this was just an additional safeguards that were built into the deal I and when the US pulled out the European said well we're not gonNA pull out as well so we'll we'll continue to trade. We'll continue to. Oh by the deal. And we'll try to David but in fact it was a lot of empty talk because they did nothing you know the. US In post-secondary sanctions on Iran. which which says that any country because we're putting our sanctions back on any country? Trade with Iran is going to be subject to our sanctions and when that happened essentially you told it like a house of cards. Yes and it's changed a little bit more in lining up the country's if four and against each other even know that existed before the treaty was not an ideal libertarian treaty but it was a move in trying to control around developing developing nuclear weapons and to me our institute. It was foolish for us to just to get out of it. One thing that is done In a up in a realistic manner is this has pushed pushed the three countries that Together Iran and Iran Iran Russia and China. They're alive their alliance is stronger than ever. Yeah but you know what happened yesterday rested and you pointed it out to the French and German triggered the dispute resolution mechanism within the JCP away agreement and essentially honestly what this is This will kill the deal And that's why it is go traumatic capitulation to trump trump trump and Netanyahu donahue but this mechanism joke into the deal essentially. What it says it if if if the STARNER'S JCP disputed that they're not able to get over and then what? The Europeans claim is that the Iranians are violating the deal. Because as you know every two months since the US arrest pulled out of the Iranians and this is within some clauses of the agreement thirty six and thirty seven article JCP away. They have the right to back off of some of their obligations. And so that's exactly what they did. They say hey we will go back and we will review of the Gatien's if the US honors the the deal. The Europeans honor the deal and and start trading with us and intentions. The Europeans never did so the Iranians kept backing off every two months on schedule And nothing happened so now all of a sudden the European slipped out and said hey uranian violating the deal when in fact they were within their rights. But the the big Talker Paul and this is why the deal will be dead is it. Here's a mechanism once it's invoked which it has been yesterday the signers of the do have fifteen days chart funding solution Russian if they fail the four ministers of those countries have another fifteen days to find a solution if they don't find it any signer of the. JCP Oh hey can kick it up to the UN Security Council and this is where it gets tricky because the way that it's built into the agreement the UN Security George Council month for of Iran which off because the US would block any vote in favor of your one if they don't vote in favor of your run all the actions automatically snap on Iran from the UN and that's it it's binding on all call on all countries in the UN including Russia and China. So that would bring a real question as to what happens but this is put into motion as if yesterday so you can. Today's goodbye to the deal in hollow to the parts of an increased possibility of war with Iran. Which of course the neo cons and? That's an Yahu. I'm sure thrilled about about you. Know the the tree is Harley a clear example of globalism but it does show you know diplomacy and talking with each other an and maybe diminishing the threat of nuclear war and moving in the right direction but you know Some of the people see this though. These international the national agreements whether their trade agreements are or military agreements as as a form of globalism. But I'll tell you. What if we undermined tonight? I if the European Union which never deserved to be put together I if it gets under by which it is. That doesn't necessarily solve the problem. Because who's GonNa who's GonNa set the orders and that is of course America first and we have a powerful leader in America first movement and it just it just changes Who's doing the dictating? And how are they sharing this so I see a very dangerous situation here. Because then what that what does it forces the military confrontation with the various groups and It looks like the Europeans decided. Well we don't want to go on on our own you know we we have to do. What the American government says and what The American President say so they of course they capitulated so so and I think you're absolutely right Dan they're not gonNA put this back together again. But this is one of the reasons why I was always a bit skeptical. Typical of those kinds of agreements. You know yes I want. Diplomacy I want some agreements. I WANNA move away from conflict but these types of conflicts You know don't don't seem to work very well. I my attitude has generally been. We have riding obligation to defend our country country. But that doesn't mean we have to be involved internationally like NATO United Nations and all these things thinking that this type of approach is going to make it work better. I I never believed that. And that's why you know that We can have a strong national defense and you can have friends and allies is and you can have trading partners but you don't have to have these Agreements where so-called multilateral agreements. No no matter who they are and what happens to them. We have committed our troops and our money. And all these things. So this is not a surprise to me. but I'm not optimistic. That all of a sudden something More Libertarian non interventionist will evolve. Yeah and if in fact there's the attack now de facto. There will be no more deals because who in the right mind would make you deal with the. US backs out whenever it wants. And now even the Europeans the French French and the Germans will back out at the behest of the US who who would make a deal. It's ironic because by by the US and the EU behaving in mismanaged toward their obligations under this treaty. Under this deal. They're actually as you point out in the opening of the show. They're pushing Iran closer into the arms of Russia and China. And maybe that's what they what they want. But if it's a war.

"Southern Europeans were not only not only was all of oil sort of functioning the way that butter functioned in different areas of Europe but all of oil was considered superior and southern some southern Europeans actually a prejudice sees against blotter really really strange stuff there was this belief that you know but was a disease vector that the reason people got leprosy was because of their water consumption and soon southern Europeans were traveling abroad some would even bring their own supply of oil you know like I don't want to come back to Rome with leprosy so pack a back in mule full of olive oil and put bags on the mule don't put the oil and the mule and less of me now starting to rest yes Sir chemical meals I'm talking all of this I don't leave it and it's fine we're just having a conversation here so southern Europeans all about olive oil olive oil maybe fish will these are the superior flavor ingredients right these are this is the Superior products in comparison to butter but in parts of Europe where there were a dairy farm in countries like France or where Martin Luther live Germany cutting butter from the diet was a huge deal it was dangerous I was tantamount to some form of forced starvation essentially because think about it if they can't consume any need to work then also cheese right she's would be out then they could rely on butter things were getting really really skimpy in the pantry in the larder end this rule was applied in a very corrupt way this is where indulgences come in and did you read about these when you were a kid in school totally man this sounds like the most crooked disturbing practice would be isn't as you know religious equivalent of like Paulie walnuts from the sopranos knocking on your door and you know expecting his collections for protection you know but this is like spiritual protection basically say you know you grease my palm a little bit and I'll give you a pass in other words I won't break your legs or you know put you in the stocks when we find out that you have a broken fast by eating you know something that was prohibited like butter yeah it's it's crazy so if you are well connected Catholic royalty or if you were a wealthy merchant for instance and you're saying that the common people may be overwhelming goal three days out of the week without but have but I am of of different stock I have to have a talk every single one they all sound like Winston Churchill including the children yes No Way Out it's terrifying I forgot where they're actually right now still we we haven't come back from our time traveling region watch yourselves we really should figure out what day of the week it is so we don't get in trouble because you know this is a spiritual institution we are talking about a religious rule and this means that in addition to physical penalties that might exist you know if their physical penalties for breaking religious rule the ultimate threat is that you couldn't you are spiritually committing a transgression against the will of god in the thing too is in these regions where they didn't have ready access to the alternatives to butter there were merchants that would capitalize on that and would provide or import I guess really really really poor quality coils and is actually a quote from a book by the name of fast and feast from a a priest from fifteen twenty that goes as such in Rome they make a mockery of fasting while forcing us to eat an oil they themselves would not use to Greece their shoes then they sell us the right to eat the foods for bidden on fast days but they have stolen that same liberty from us with their ecclesiastical laws eating butter they say is a greater send them to lie blaspheme or indulge in impurity which is just when you think about it you know that that list of priorities could be so messed up and it's it's not just a matter of controlling the population right it's a matter of economic import for the for the Catholic Church because they're taking this money that people are paying for dispensations right any day at different rates and then sometimes they're groups paying like a community paying for a dispensation they're using the cash these folks are paying them to construct bigger buildings you know men to fund the crusades and there are even there is there even things that the local population still recognizes about this practice right there was a special collection box infringe parishes to collect what was called Bader money right so the entire communities were told you can eat butter do that sounds like a a mafia term yeah I get that but our money Hey a little bit of but of money you know forget about it that's not my best it's okay that now everybody's looking around at that terrible accident and we apologize to any Italian Americans out there that lived and is deeply offended no that was the Italian American what was it it was just a it was yeah Brooklyn thing yeah like legal you know forget about IT Brooklyn Jersey okay that's fair hello boy well who knew the voter's usual controversy who knew who knew we we we knew we we we read we read up on the screen you earlier at forty going so in this case it's not somebody saying okay I know that butter is banned on Wednesdays but we're having a big wedding at my castle and I'd like to serve butter too you know the people attending a wedding this case the these entire regions who just continue to pay an extra tax for the right to conveniently ignore rule your even like like you said royalty or you know very privileged members of society could pay the tax for like their entire household yeah yeah they could they could do it as a you know like a group rate I wonder if they get a price break you know I wonder if it if members of the church would say well for you by yourself it's X. amount of stuff but you get a couple a couple units offer every family member you at they probably didn't do price breaks are like buying group passes to like Disneyland or some long like cell phone plan this is almost like a cell phone plan because you have to keep paying for cable bundle or cable bundle basically the Roman Catholic Church was like the Comcast of the medieval you know what that is accurate to frightening degree in in this case officially ended locals been today would call certain buildings like but towers you know the the money was used to build these gigantic religious what will to add expansions on were to build these gigantic religious structures this struck Martin Luther along with all the other problems yeah destructiveness tremendously insulting because you know no we're walking around in the past our clothes would probably really cool I would hope although our hat game is nowhere near as of all as the Middle Ages hacked game but we we don't have any money in this area of time so if we're in this community of William Blake sat down and lived here and we didn't have money to pay for that dispensation then we're getting swindled by people selling garbage oil right that might not even be edible there's no way around this but her band for us so what what are we what are we supposed to do you know yeah and just just to backtrack just lightly I found an example of one of these kind of blanket dispensations in fourteen ninety one and this is from the the better book a rich history queen and use the Duchess of Brittany got Rome to give her a dispensation for not only herself but the entire household including all her servants and and family members and Britney did not produce any cooking oil at all it was a he was a broader based economy I guess the lack of a better it's interesting because the this dispensation was ultimately extended to all of Britney and this kind of started the V. undoing of some of this gradually but it didn't come for free because they had to still give to the church and they were even special prayers that they had to do yes a contrite confession right it's not it's technically it's not enough to just give them the money and say let me let me know if my butter in peace technically they have to make a contrite confession where they are legitimately apologizing confessing to receive the absolution from sin and that's where those but boxes came from the we were talking about in churches where you would pay this spiritual tax I in some of these French parishes and they actually paid for the construction of like these ornate cathedrals and one of them and row and and borders was dubbed the tower the butter tower or then toured Europe where yes to do with so we can see we can see how this becomes a active segments of the regional economies frame and this whether or not I mean obviously and we see we look back we see the process of granting indulgences as corrupt right but if it is the practice of the Catholic Church in the Catholic Church is making the rules then they're the ones who decide or something is corrupt it would logically follow however loser in an open letter to the Christian nobility of the German nation said that this was an enormous problem that these clergymen should not be traveling around Germany telling people to pay money and say they're sorry before they can heat the butter that they already made they already may be paid for right they already turned themselves the religious institution was not involved in the creation of the butter we just had to pay the end this practice which was soon as selling forgiveness became very very widespread and I I loved this I love this freeze and we talked about a little bit off air professor of Lutheran history and theology at Pacific Lutheran theological seminary cold at this that's doctor QC sterner an economy of grace yeah it's pretty pretty great image there's a quote from professor stern and says today we buy life insurance and health insurance to secure our possessions in the Middle Ages the only security came through church these indulgences were the people's insurance policies tangible pieces of paper that said Hey I'm good get out of hell free accolades but as we've been saying for Luther these clergy's selling indulgences represented just kind of totally exposed what he saw as kind of the rock with in the Roman Catholic Church that I'm convinced poor peasants that they could be forgiven for price and in Luther's particular theology forgiveness was free and that you could be saved by faith alone and grace alone and it did not have to follow this you know bizarre pyramid scheme of like paying for forgiveness which now I mean it's totally cheapens it if you're thinking about it like objectively right mu especially room consider different hearts the different passages of the Bible which talk about the dangers of the dangers of counted on well right gone are.

"That we can you know get supplies and people to the areas where they're needed. yeah there's no doubt that the European die I think if you talk to a lot of people in the weather forecasting community the first thing they go to look for for a lot of different weather events is looking at that European model solution because not only does it tend to be the most accurate but it also tends to be the most consistent with time as well but what forecasters don't like it they don't like a forecast to say you know storms gonna move way to the east one one day and then the next day it moves it's showing it way to the west they like consistency in the forecast as well and another thing the Europeans model tends to do. I suppose I have as a follow up here which would be along the lines of what's wrong with our people. well that. I don't think it's as much as it is that the what's wrong with our people it's there's a lot of technology development that the Europeans put into this over a very long period of time we're talking thirty years of development and so there's a lot of really smart people really hard working people would within Noah who are trying to catch up with that but the Europeans are also getting better as well so it's a it's a bit of a race we are trying to were you trying to catch somebody who's already out ahead of you this is ironic though I mean if you the fact that that for Europeans a hurricane forecasting it is pretty much a at an academic exercise for us it's it's a real life and and death type of exercise yeah well it it what it what it what I'll say is that the Europeans are not necessarily focus their model development on hurricanes they try to make a model that simulate the weather on earth everywhere on earth as well as they can. and so in doing that they tended to make very good hurricane forecast very good forecasted east coast winter storms that we often see even just looking at what the large scale pattern whether it's just gonna be warmer colder bringing your dry Europeans can do as well the it's just this focus on understanding what the atmosphere looks like when you start a model as well as you can has really paid dividends for them in terms of how their ability to do forecasting to working hard if we're working hard to close that gap but it's gonna take time good.

"Gotta read that blog every single day. Good morning to you. Good morning shit. You coming on here. President Trump last week threatened impose a five percent tariff shorting, this month, a Mexican goods unless Mexico Mexico stuff still flow of illegal immigrants into the US for the next five months could be at twenty five percent tariff. At some point. What do you say? Oh, this is a big deal because Mexico is actually our largest trading partner right now, a kind of catapulted above China after we impose those tariffs on China, and it's wide ranging when you think about what it means to put a car together. For example, we imported ninety three billion dollars worth of cars in into the United States last year from Mexico and car parts. But because of the way the supply chain is set up after the original NAFTA means that items go back and forth across the southern border many times. And so you could see things like your car parts that you just said, oh, I had to go to the dealership and buy something that could go up in price. The card self could go up at price fruits and vegetables, strawberries and raspberries, tomatoes. Avocados beer, liquor even crude oil, which is really interesting because we actually import seven hundred thousand barrels a day from Mexico and. Then we refine that, that crude oil and send it back to Mexico in and natural gas. So all these areas of our lives, we could see price increases, very, very different than what we would see with China where we've seen very specific items. This would be a lot of rain, big range of items, and it would impact consumers pretty quickly. We're hearing that as specially because, as you mentioned, just this in and out kind of working business relation, particularly with states like Texas in Arizona and Mexico in particular. And I've already talked to some folks understand the car manufacturing. They say look you're going to be paying more car. And this is in the face of already expected three percent downturn in car buying a new car buying this year. Yeah, I mean, I spent a little bit of time on cars, because an auto analyst came out and tried to crunch. The numbers said, on average if these tariffs were at twenty five percent so that would only occur. If everything state went into effect on June tenth and then stayed into effect until October. But if we got to twenty five percent we would see an average increase on a car, fifteen hundred dollars, maybe as much as twenty five hundred dollars for some makes that's pretty startling. I mean, that will really sort of catch you by surprise, if you're walking the dealership. So again, this is not. In effect, right, this second, where you have a week to go. And even if they were to go into effect, and they just then quickly all got reverser that's fine. But boy, it's real interesting because here we have the president invoking the use of tariffs for something that is not economic related. And that's a real difference. We haven't seen that yet in this whole process. What do you mean by not economic related? I thought China was kind of economic related in this. So Regina is economic. But when you look at Mexico, the rationale is we're talking about immigration. Well, that's true. Right. So, you know what we're seeing in the mex- case of Mexico. Is that now invoking tariffs about something that's not related to trade or the economy? And that's really spooked investors last week. I think that, that was the thing that most people were talking about over the weekend. Like, wow, if he can do it for this, then it could be almost any conflict that you might invoke terrace. It might be. I'm mad at the Europeans. You know, the president was talking a lot about Brexit and who might lead the u k next he's in Great Britain right now. So if all the sudden you're talking about issues that don't necessarily have an economic conflict underneath them, but we're using tariffs to resolve them that is very different than what we've seen in the past, and many economists and more of the market folks are very worried that, that kind of uncertainty would stop businesses from investing and could cause some pain for consumers, and we're the ones that are getting taxed yes,.

"By far now, Ian Bremmer is founder of the political risk consultancy Eurasia group. You heard that in discuss we are right now, certainly outspending mostly out innovating non certainly talk about conventional military capabilities. But the transatlantic relationship is getting a lot weaker, and when you talk about unwinding the INS agreement which looks almost certain to happen, and I don't see us renegotiating a new one anytime soon, the countries that are going to experience the brunt of that are going to be on the European continent. And you're gonna increasingly go their own way, you're gonna week in that relationship their commitment to NATO it so will be lower and that obviously makes life a little bit more challenging the president did use this phrase last night in this regard calling for all bold new diplomacy, maybe that could help fix that. With europe. Well, there is a bold new diplomacy with North Korea. Right. And I mean, it's certainly true that the United States in the North Koreans have broken through in terms of diplomatic engagement while. We don't think they're gonna get rid of their nukes. Certainly that means they're less of a hermit kingdom. They're engaging with the South Koreans economically because of that great through their engage with the Chinese more. And you know, I think the likelihood of wars a consequence of dangerous has gone down. But bold new diplomacy with the Europeans. Just means. Transactional ISM amid means that there's less trust. There's less loyalty, and that becomes more expensive more expensive when you have to work to convince countries to do what you want every single time on every issue because they're either getting something from you for it or because they're going to get hurt. As a consequence. Ian Bremmer is founder of the Eurasia group global risk consultancy in. Thank you. My pleasure. David. Checking financial markets. The Dow is down forty points.

"All the risk of no, Brexit all. That's the domestic view. But some of us have definitely been roll baffled by the apparent lack of noise from continental Europe. Over Britain's decision to leave the Ube after all who and a fifty year personal relationship with at least without at least attempting measures like say reflection counseling third party intervention. The certainly been the ALDE appeal most recently a letter from one hundred EMMY as calling on Britain to hit the abort button on leaving. But largely it's been all quiet on the repeal in front. So does anyone care or they all Bob says well Stephanie bolts is the London correspondent for the German daily developed as Stephanie ton to fess up. Are you a Bob which is a board of Brexit? I think honestly, I shouldn't be because I should try to neutrally observe and report back to Germany, what is happening in the UK. But but on a series, also non another serious point. The the fact that Europe was rather quiet in the referendum campaign, and and also after 'words as because Europeans all European governments. And also in Brussels, the commission and other institutions have very aware that actually put become counter-productive if that tried to intervene in what is a completely British question. You can be distinctly rubbish promoting its own virtues though, saying this to the European Union busted Serbia originally Serbia wants to join the the doesn't spend very much time in Serbia saying exactly why it's great once thinks it's a Member States are great and white once new members to join it's it's pathetic. It's its own pay. All. Doesn't actually need to be much better. If you if you go to Brussels in I spent four years of my career in Brussels, you you will see that. There are hundreds of people working in communications. And in the press departments of the European Union trying to promote the European Union. I think the problem is that widely. You has done amazing work and amazing piece work and it has brought prosperity to Europe. It has brought democracy to countries that would have never seen democratic systems working on. I'm talking about eastern Europe after the Soviet Union collapsed. They are also very very big problems. And we saw especially in recent years with the crisis of the euro, the common currency also with the refugees. So it's it's it's a pretty difficult balance. Because people at the end of the day, they like Europe they like to work. But if they talk about the identity, I think most of them will always say, it's my country first. And then it's euro, so your reporting back to develop which of course, one of the biggest newspapers in your country is a great deal of appetite among your readers and also to consumers of other media that to hear about what's going on with Britain. Or are they have they checked out? No, they haven't actually they're still quite a lot of interest. I can see that whenever especially when I ride editorials. There are hundreds of comments online. It is a very. Well controversial issue in the beginning, actually after the referendum result in two thousand sixteen there were far more people among our readers and users who were actually supporting Brexit. Have in mind that there's a lot of euroscepticism in Germany as well. But as things have info unfolded, and the Brexit negotiations have been so Celtic, and so difficult more and more people are looking at Britain as an example of how you should not leave. The European Union strikes me when I talk to a you leaders, whether that's heads of government from individually you countries or fficials at the Commissioner. What have you is amiss goes prior to the vote on Britain, leaving the we've go back to say Croatia? Joining in two thousand thirteen at that time, the kind of people I was meeting people, I call built, for example, would be saying it's terribly important that we remember the EU at its haunt is a peace project, and I think people feel that much more on the on continental Europe than they do in Britain..

"And I'll have a better answer to that one. Because what is happening is we are being asked by the builders, we work with to have more technologically advanced systems in the house, particularly when it comes to heating and cooling and water and electricity all of that sort of stuff they want to raise the game. That's what I'm hearing from our contractors. So I'm in the middle of doing research on all that stuff now to see. What new things are out there. I always thought we were pretty advanced with what we were doing. But they are asking for us to be even more advanced, which is interesting. Well, it is an and you've pointed out before that often. Europeans will have technologies that are a little bit better than what we have. Or are really are new and different. And sometimes contractor learn about that. And they turn to those systems. That's true. That's true. Maybe discovering that in thirty days from now will be asking the same question after your research is done and I'll hopefully have an answer for you. We'll pushing up another thirty day going to March big project while I mean, the thing is that also too. I would imagine that maybe some of that desire for higher technology is actually driven by home construction homebuilders clients, it is it is. The the issue is to have technology that is user friendly and. We are doing a lot of projects where the technology and the control of that technology is a little bit too sophisticated for most of our clients as we get into the. Higher levels of control for these systems. While we can control most of them with our iphone anymore. They can be a little scary to to people who are may not be as technologically savvy as the younger generation coming up. And so it's not only a concern for the present users. But it's a concern about who they sell it to in the future as well. And whether or not that is a. Something that adds value to the house. From the selling standpoint or not as a as a realtor. You know, there are sometimes things that are off putting it used to be the swimming pool. Sure. And now, it's the technology in the house. Indeed. And it really is varying very ovarian very much between the age of the client their sophistication. And in fact, in some cases, where they're coming from. I mean, not this location wise, but also the kind of business that they're in. You know, if they come from a technology background, there's a much higher expectation that all those gizmos and doodads and think of a Jags that fall into that category are going to be available to them. They want him. That's right. That's very true. And we do have some some clients who are very involved in the technology world, and they want all those things. One of the funny stories is that we have a client who has a very advanced house that way. They live in California. His wife was visiting here at the house and Santa Fe, and he was in New Zealand and notice that all the lights in the house were on. And he turns off all the lights in the house. Not knowing that his wife was there. So she's in in in darkness, and she doesn't know how to control the lights. She doesn't know how to turn them back you, call a rot roll moment. So that must have been an interesting phone call. She had with somebody. Sure, I know who those people do. Anyway, they figured it out. Now, she knows she does. Yeah. Well, anyway, let's take a break here in studio with me as Mr. Craig hoops, the renowned architect here in Santa Fe. We're talking about two thousand nine nineteen architectural issues.
