Trump claims he, not governors, has authority on opening state economies
"Donald trump just tweeted for the purpose of creating conflict and confusion some of the fake news media are saying that it is the governor's decision to open up the state's not that of the president the United States and the federal government let it be fully understood that this is incorrect no no that's not incorrect it is not the president's place out what I think what he's doing here is you notice he's not he's not flexing the muscle of the presidency to close down the country he's leading the governor's very close it down he's he's fighting now for the ability to open it back up because he thinks that governors are going to fight him democratic governors are going to fight him for political reasons I think that is just wrong and you know this is wrong but he hasn't been he hasn't taken that authority to close it down why is he taking that authority to open it back up because he thinks that these governors are going to you know some of these governors little one and in Virginia not willing to open up until the middle of June now maybe that's right but I doubt it yeah I know they are and I know they've closed now the schools in New York all the way toward I think G. June twenty six or something was the end of their school calendar in hand which is not a surprise in New York I mean it's gonna go on for a while there but I think Cuomo said something the effect of looking for closing the schools down that means we're closing everything down the economy's closed down until then so they're looking they are the most extreme part of this different case yeah that's a different that's a different case but you're right it's a big New York is New York yes it's gonna be it's gonna be different you know I I hope hopefully this is just a it seems like he's been holding on to this power for a while in this idea that it's kind of like threat almost ready saying if you don't handle this rationally I'm gonna step in I don't know that he has any power to step in in this situation you know certainly would be challenged and I don't know that it would be constitutional to say you have to be I don't know you overrule the states like that I don't know but he has the power to that he's obviously trying to claim it I don't know if he has I think one of the one of the best parts of the way he's handled this so far is that he's been restrained we were just praising him earlier in the show from for his restraint in trying to grapple sorts of national power hopefully he's not going down that road I don't know how you would do it you can order people to go back to work I don't even without the function of that would work you know you can say I guess you could try to threaten us a good state by saying don't punish people if they do go back to work but I don't know how you I mean I don't think our system would allow for none of this no no none of that would be checks and balances would kick in the president couldn't do that if the governor says Hey we're in a national emergency and the governor has the right their state emergency the governor has a right to declare a state emergency now that could screw with their federal funding you know but I don't think the president would do that unless it was really obvious like he's not gonna screw with the federal funding of New York why would you screw the federal funding of New York unless it was like you know we're keeping it close for the next eighteen months well okay really you're gonna keep the entire state of New York close for the next eighteen months and there are those people that are talking that way I don't think Cuomo is and I don't know any governors that are but I've heard people say you know we should be close for the next eighteen months you know we are talking about rolling blackouts for the next eighteen to twenty four and that might be why he's you know it might be if there's if Dallas all of a sudden starts to have really bad cases to close Dallas down for a little while everybody in this area stay in place you know that that's theirs I don't think there's anything wrong with rolling blackouts as long as we know what the metrics are yeah look there are certain situations that get too bad and you and you you have to do things though I just it's it's going to be interesting to see how long people can take that we keep using this eighteen months I mean you did the corona virus update there's no there's no definitive end of S. right like no not the the idea that we're gonna have a vaccine in twelve to eighteen months doctors are calling it a miracle they've never done it that fast ever they also told us very clearly that we're gonna have an HIV vaccine without all started up we never got one you know it another corona viruses the common cold you have exceeded that I know we don't these are not sure things that will ever get a vaccine I mean probably the better possibility which could provide a shorter term solution of this and is is it realistic that we can hopefully depend on would be a treatment right if one of these things like Haider hydroxy Cork what is obviously been the one talked about the most but there's lots of them there's been some positives about another one that trump is mentioned that I won't one of the anti viral things they had initially designed for HIV wound up being you know having some promising more these clinical studies as well all we need is to find something that will back it off from you know if you're in the hospital with a ten out of ten it can bring it back to an eight out of ten that's really all we need and that sort of thing I think with the with the full power of not only the United States N. you know capitalism and innovation all everybody trying to find the same thing it's really happening around the world as well I'm optimistic we'll get there eventually but it is a you know until we have that people are we can talk all we want about opening up the economy we is that if we look at these numbers like crazy all the numbers are coming out before any government bans were instituted and you saw fifty sixty seventy percent drop offs in traffic to restaurants because people didn't want to die right and until you can convince them they're not going to die it doesn't matter if you quote unquote open up the economy people don't want to go outside right now this is like you know you're not just government since doing this right you're you're gonna it's gonna take a massive and the best ad campaign of probably American history to get us to go back quickly to normal life going to restaurants going in the crowds having parties everything else it'll take a long time some people will do it but I think there's gonna be a lot of people that will stay out of the restaurants for a very very long time unless they they you know cut the you know cut the number of people in there by half or whatever and still then I'm not I don't know I'm not that comfortable I don't know you know I don't know all the people in there and I don't know who's sick and who's who's not say consider it set for a minute until you can come up with a vaccine that we won't be comfortable if you don't come up with a vaccine at least have some sort of way of understanding you've been tested and you don't currently have it or you have the antibodies when that happens then we'll start to normalize again but without those things it's not gonna be normal but we can open the economy back up more than it already is there is a great article on medium and and it was the I don't know six or seven reasons why we should open the economy first one we've already flattened the curve we've now gone from predictions of millions of deaths to hundreds of thousands and now we're predicting about sixty thousand deaths the next one is economic collapse and unemployment is destroying families this one is really really true we'll be lucky if the job losses are not twenty five million and to put that into perspective twenty five million is about the population of the great state of Texas and the great state of Texas is the size of half of the continental US and that's not I mean it's obvious going to be worse than that merry at sixteen it's it's the obviously going to be worse than so and that is that's only the ones that we're counting there are so many problems that come with unemployment the the the fact that you'll have suicides you'll have health problems you won't be able to see doctors as much all of these things that causes massive suicidal tendencies the next one we have not saturated the healthcare system in New York we came close but the rest is pretty good and the reason why we're having problems is because of PP is in and things like that if we can get the mask situation under control if you know we with the federal government ordered five hundred million masks if we can get the mask shortage under control and we can get all of the gallons and everything else that we need for the hospitals if we get the medicine that we need for the hospitals as long as we don't burn our doctors and patients out we we're doing good will be set for the next wave if we're not set for the next wave there is a problem we should be we should be working on that right now a suicide will kill almost as many people as covert aid this year and twenty eighteen there were forty eight thousand recorded suicides for but economic ruin results in a wide range of health problems suicide mental health issues loss of health insurance reluctance to visit doctors in light of the financial hardship increases in a in the substance abuse blah blah blah that is on top of the delay in nod to non covalent care SO forty eight thousand deaths in twenty eighteen how many suicides will it be this year the P. P. limited but now becoming more available and this one is the last point and I this is one I've been ringing the bell on from the beginning of this authority should show clear evidence regarding the benefits of indefinite lockdown we need to see what the parameters are what are you what are you looking for what are you looking at to make these decisions right now we know that the states have been looking at cove it now this this website that was started by a group of progressive activists who were leading a charge against Donald Trump most of the states were using that it's unbelievably flawed the numbers on cove it now are are way way way off children million dead in Texas alone ridiculous kinds of numbers the states were using that website to predict what was going on that stuff is got to stop we need to know what are the parameters what are you looking for in numbers what are the what are the things in the hospitals that you're looking for what what is the number of new infections that says okay we're probably pretty safe I'd like to have a discussion of those things in public I'd like to know what those things are that are open that are keeping us from opening or telling us we should open what are those things and are they saying are they rational and are they scientifically provable this is too big to go off of just somebody's got yeah no it's definitely true and and hopefully were at least a little bit past the top of this right I mean it the deaths dropped yesterday pretty significantly there's part of that is just record brick you know recording in that for whatever reason you know Sundays especially Easter Sunday there's you know people aren't working and don't necessarily read a report every single death if we can get past this week without two thousand over two thousand again because we've been over two thousand a couple times once or twice we get through this week without two thousand it may show that we are past the peak of this which would be really encouraging but really encouraging you know like the trade was great sample which are someone earlier from Detroit about how bad this was I mean Detroit is really in the middle of it New Orleans is in the middle of it there's several cities that are breaking out that I can be is as bad as New York obviously population wise but they are you know on the wrong side of this and it's increasing are getting worse in some cases so hopefully we can at least get past this peak and then week once we get past the like panic of this first moment there's going to be a touch of the period here coming I think to the end of the month where this sort of like organized hopefully rollout of people being able to go back and feeling that they're not going to you know get sick just by going out and doing the basic things they want to do with life hopefully that's

"The less of them the value of your stock of your the value of the profit, put replaced or earnings just people confuse it. So the profits start moving up because there's less shares to spread your profits on or around, if you're spreading your profits on a million shares as of ten million shares your profits are going to look a lot better, your earnings better. That's going to push up your earnings that creates value in your stock, so people look at a stock that's, that's eighty dollars and they look at the PE ratio. They look at the earnings this, while the earnings justified this, this hundred dollar stock will say, well, remember how the Ernie's got there. It doesn't justify it earnings got there because they were manipulated their financial engineered their, their hair, the CEO got money free, and he has less. Cheers, he bought less shares. So manipulate, so, yes, the earnings profits look better because they're spreading earnings. Over many less shares. Now the stock price goes up, so a lot of stocks, your proposal right now are fifty sixty seventy percent over. Why do you think the smart might the big money is bailing all the market? But here's how they do because the stock buybacks they can have the market still go up still be eleven percent for the year. You think you're fine. You have no clue. It's imploding, the market you have no clue. And you're going to just sit there and all of a sudden it's too late. If you would me it's not gonna be too late. Because we're head of it. So these the values of stocks you're buying or in your folio are fake. Totally thing because they use QE a confidence game and stock, buybacks and accounting trickery to move the value of your stocks up by moving the earnings up. By buying these outstanding share, so there's less outstanding shares. This is crazy. So again, investors are worried. If Powell stopped right now, it doesn't do Q, four, if he pulls out of QE, because remember, they're still selling treasury trying to get the four trillion dollars four trillion and treasures. They have they're trying to sell them off to get him down. So the interest rates will come down if he stops doing that, then he stopped QE, and that would kill the market. And Trump is Vega him, do Q, E four, let's even do more of this. Let's get the stock market really blown up. Let's go to sixty eight that's fine with me. Let's do it. But remember for the last eight months, they have not been able to break the market out. Nobody's talking about that CNBC. Nobody's talking about that on facts as they bring Larry cudlow in right to tell you this low unemployment low appointments great. Yeah. They got low unemployment. And then you got pain comes in. This guy, everything is wonderful. He should be in that movie. Name. But now or do she's dancing around on a mountaintop. Yes, she should be. They should dress him up the gallows in south and they should have some mountain somewhere with his dress singing. 'cause that's all I can think of when I hear pain. And then today he turns around and says this I think it's intriguing. We have big lows. Twenty eight eleven on the twenty five three to four on the Dow, and they have held up to me took they haven't health. They have held up. We went through twenty eight hundred the SNP what you got to watch, and I'm watching this for my members is the Bank stocks XL app. That's the let me tell you what's going to happen. If XL Aleph breakthrough twenty six bucks and stays below then you're gonna see this market tank a minimum of ten percent, a minimum the plunger teens been able to hold the banks up above this. What they call fifty day moving average finally broke now the last average, they got the last day Shen the they got a hope that they can keep it up. But the problem is, there's not enough bids to keep it up money. Because the money is leaving the market,.

"Or two thousand eight financial crisis in sold there equity positions at the absolute worst time would feel anticipated regret if they were to think about reinvesting in the stock market again, this is yet another big one. And don't tell me that you don't have it. If you actually sold out and missed out on the big run up. It's why it's next to impossible once the market drops twenty thirty forty fifty percent like it did an eight. To get back in especially after the market comes back seventy eighty ninety percent, which it normally does people say now, I don't want to get in now because I might regret losing again only to find out that the market went up fifty sixty seventy percent and kept going up and it's hovering between three hundred and four hundred percent right now, and those that are still on the sidelines because of regret of version are probably regretting their regret aversion next confirmation bias, have you ever thought of an investing idea, then googled it to find out more reasons why. You use your believe yourself. This is confirmation bias. We see this all the time in politics. Democrats watch MSNBC Republicans watch FOX and most of the time they are confirmed in their bias sees either for or against a candidate. Isn't it? True. Yeah. That's true. Come on. Yeah. Admit these guys finally admitted it confirmation bias is a dangerous one because psychologically, we look to get confirmation for what our beliefs are instead of looking at all of the facts, whether it's your politics or your money confirmation bias is dangerous. Next hindsight bias this one. We all have and it's hard to get rid of hindsight bias occurs. When we look at the past and convince ourselves it was more predictable than it really was quote. I knew that would happen. Who hasn't said or heard that probably many times, certainly I've said it you have to I knew that was going to happen. But I didn't respond ahead of time. Having known that it was going to happen. Isn't that crazy? While they know it all reminds people of their forecasting prowess, hindsight bias can have detrimental effects on one's finances or investment strategy. We tend to over estimate the accuracy of our past predictions, which leads to a false sense of security, in fact, when we recall stuff from our past. I mean, I recall being a pretty good quarterback when I was in college. But you know, what? Now that I'm in my sixties. I'm a heck of.

"We're going to get a little bounce here before it goes lower. But here's the thing. What I'm seeing on social media? Now, a lot of the posts are like people like oh man rea-, you'll will you know, really depends on when you bought in. But I do feel bad for all those people who bought, you know, the at the height of the bubble and put it wasn't a bubble at the time. No, it wasn't a bubble. Then it was just the fact it was just where we were going. It's not going to go lower. It's gonna go higher, and I tried to tell everybody, and I tried to say don't listen to these guys. They don't know what they're talking about. You're gonna lose all of your money. This thing is going to collapse. Like the tulip craze. And nobody wanted to listen to me and all you out.

And everyone of you clowns out there who talk trash, and who talk this thing up like it was going to be fifty thousand dollars a coin and that anyway. Naysayers out there needed to have to be spanked down. You're all responsible. I hold you all culpable for people who lost money at this. It's your fault because you added to the hype you added the hysteria. You got sucked into the drama. You started drinking your own Kool-Aid? And now you've all lost money and some of the people who bought into this thing have lost fifty sixty seventy percent of what they put in there. You are responsible for that you bear responsibility for it. Because of the things that you said and the surely with which you spoke, I just I've no respect for any of you. And I I'm still waiting for my emails. All you naysayers who emailed me and told me how wrong I was the eight pages that you would Email me telling me the fifty different reasons why I'm wrong at why it's going to go higher.

"We're not gonna focus so much on the metrics just yet because those numbers aren't out the q four version of two thousand seventeen. We focused on metrics and data and allocation of capital by percentage, which funding rounds receiving capital, which kinds of companies receiving capital. That's what we'll do is we progress later on in the year, the q. one St. of venture capitals going gonna focus on a lot of the non technical information that we're gathering here at a lot of the intangible information and a lot of deductions from headlines and stories that we come across on our day to day research and how that's going to affect venture capital for this coming year and folks. The reason this episode is so important is if you're in a traditional startup, I e if you're not running a tech business, this may not be the most important show for you. But if. Your business at all, has any tech side to it, whether it's a piece of software or an app or some data that you're trying to scale in your business model. There's a good chance that down the line you're going to require at least some kind of venture capital, some kind of money because software often times if you wanna compete in the big leagues requires that kind of capital. Now we've discussed many times on this show that there are ways to do it without that capital, but because the majority of entrepreneurs are still going out and looking for angel seed and venture capital. We know that this is one of the most important episodes we can put out. It's something that we want to get into the habit of putting out because it is going to help so many entrepreneurs. And so again on this q. one version of the state of enter capital for twenty eight teen. We're going to be discussing probably the single most important trend that we are predicting for twenty teen, and we're going to start there. Folks first and foremost. We are seeing. Venture capital shaken up like never before the venture capitalists will tight. That's not the case that everything is rosy that everything is going well. But folks again without getting too technical and without getting into the metrics, the majority of the big venture capital firms and even a majority of what used to be the early stage firms. Are allocating capital more than ever before to companies that they've already made investments in. Now you might be asking yourself wise that such a bad thing, isn't that what they're supposed to do? Yes, to a certain extent. But when it comes to a point. That a fund. Is allocating more than forty fifty sixty seventy percent of its capital. And a lot of these firms are eighty percent or more allocation of capital too late stage companies that they've already funded one, two, three, four, and five times. That's where you see companies getting funded and series dean e. rounds when it comes to that stage or venture capital money's going into those rounds. What ends up happening because those rounds are at such high and ridiculously stupid. Overvalued valuations. Is you get this massive allocation of capital, it's call it three hundred million. From one particular fund, I e SoftBank that's going into a. Company that doesn't necessarily need that capital, but that's going to help them to corner the market. So what does that do? Well for the venture capital firm that makes that investment, we're going to look at it to his first, the positive and the negative. The positive thing that happens is if you make a good bet on a company that can corner the market. You're basically you're going to get to be the bully that pushes everybody else out of that space. So if you as the venture capitalists of the person rightness fund, believe in a certain space and you back a company because they're founding team or because they're, you know, the ex, Google IRS, the have the right connections, if you back them with enough money, like SoftBank likes to do sure you're going to corner the market and all the companies that have only raised one, two, three or five million are either going to get knocked out of business or going to get acquired by that company that raised three hundred million. So that's the positive view for venture capitalist. That's the positive you for why they do things like that. The negative behind that is somebody that we've talked about all the time, which is that this is an ecosystem. Entrepreneurship is an ecosystem. We all support each other..

"Comes down to gosh are there any other cases that you're worried about that that would maybe we forgotten because those those were the two in my mind i think that's probably enough yeah we wanna have some listeners who haven't driven cliff i guess yeah i don't know again this will be a very very conservative court for a very very long time and you know one of the things that is apparent when you look through history is the supreme court the lochner era in which the supreme court struck down every law virtually every law that was designed to deal with working conditions or fairness that lasted forty years right you know the the the the moral arc of the universe may may bend towards justice but that's over the long run right like when you're on the downward swing of that arc it matters for those people for forty years and this could be a very lengthy period in which you know we we look back at the supreme court and see you a tremendous amount of conservative judicial activism that that looks like it's it's it's poised to go on for decades i can't wait i'm going to see my one of my friends who's married to a man today right just can't i just don't know what to say i'm sorry so yeah i had to pause collect myself sorry listeners but these these things really matter to me and i think they should matter to you too i hope i mean i i i wanna i want our listeners to know you know we try very very hard to present these stories everything we do on the show accurately and to call out irrational exuberance or anger or liberal out on our side but but but this really is something for for for for both of us you know where this affects this affects real people at affects friends of ours and and you know this is it's hard to do an objective assessment and and say things are going to get worse that's that's a tough message to say so you know i think what what i want to try and leave our listeners with is to the continuation of what we've been trying to do since trump took office right if you if you find this disturbing and depressing the locus of activism has and will continue to shift away from the federal government and to the states and to localities and and it means being out there and and starting to lay the groundwork now so that an an an and here i'm talking we are talking to our friends our listeners in red states right california is not going to provide the test can be running as usual i'll be fine maryland is not going to do that but but i find it difficult to believe that even in the red states when i talked to people who are oury when i talked to people who are not a part of a sizeable but a distinct minority of of the religious right in this country i do not find people whether they're from alabama or south carolina or tennessee or alaska idaho i do not find people outside of that minority of the extreme religious writes who who want to go back to treating lgbtq individuals as second class citizens and in my view that's where the battle lines are are being fought when you look at the polls on reproductive health rights that again the the kinds of positions that are coming down the pike are not physicians that resonate with fifty sixty seventy percent of the public they are a minority position and and it means it sucks to fight holding actions it it it sucks to say you know we wanna work locally we want to be involved in in state organizations but but that's in my view that's what we need to do that's those are where the battle lines will be drawn and you know i i wanna i wanna give a shout out and i'm springing this on thomas announced but there was a threat up in the in the opening arguments facebook community as to charities that that are doing good work in these areas who need our help and need our support and and i would encourage go check out that list and thomas and i are going to are going to make a an oa donation definitely and and and we're gonna continue you know to to to do what we can with with our voice with our platform and and with our dollars and and heard you to do likewise yeah yeah definitely we gotta do what we can we.
