"I might listen to the first track or maybe a little bit of the second track and if it didn't grabbed me right away i would kind of go onto something else. I was more really more on the business side anyhow but can felt maybe duty-bound or just i mean it paid off in a case like this. This was a fifth track of a cassette. He heard allison's voice in it was a bluegrass band but she didn't sing under i four songs and when it got to the fifth track there she wasn't he just instantly. I said wow you know. Who's that and made a few phone calls and so forth. And she was fourteen years old at the time you know ended up talking to her mother and the agreed to do an album. You know parents had to sign it instead of burke. She was a minor who couldn't be violating child labor laws although they were probably doesn't artists that resigned when they were teenagers. Bela fleck mark o'connor males signs. People that were eighty years old traditional banjo players and stuff you know it takes a lot of guts and fortitude. I'm sure nobody thought that. This fourteen year old fiddle prodigy would win twenty seven grammy awards. Right i mean this is just this year. Say finally sir pastor for the most grammys by a female artist. Amazing allison has had that distinction for ten years whereas now and she's doesn't quite as much as you do. Maybe it's pretty well known. I've heard yeah you know. Another person i've heard of is robert plant. Who was the former lead singer of led zeppelin and alison would recorded two at album with him. How did that project come about. I think that i was there at the first genesis abbott. There was this show at the rock and roll hall of fame in cleveland to honor lead belly. They invited robert platt. Who had recorded some the deli or liability ish music at one point but also alison. I'm not actually sure why. Alison got invited. But the two of them met during the show and then i can remember getting on the bus going back to the hotel and the two of them starting to talk to each other a little more and i think that's where it came from his certainly the first time they met. I had no idea whether we're talking about i was wasn't involved in that. The first album raisings hand came out in two thousand eight and that sold lots of copies won the grammy for record of the year and album of the year. And it's extremely rare that the same artist or artists would win. Both grammys in the same year. But that happened that very year. And i think if memory serves there are five grammies associated with that record. Weren't there yeah. There's more than those two. But those yes of course of course and i'm proud to work on that record. And i distinctly remember conference calls with robert plant alison krauss and the photographer. Pamela springsteen who has a famous musician brother and you know. I'm seeing that in this conference coffee. This is a good day at work and you probably met robert when he came over. Dude you around your warehouse at one point. The offices a delightful guy. And i remember going to fenway park with allison when she sang the national anthem. Or two is in overalls and couldn't have been more at ease and just a a wonderful person. We're speaking with bill nowlin the author of vinyl ventures my fifty years at rounder records. Let's talk a little bit about business..

"Steve j. Today's guest is bill nowlin. Who wrote a book called vinyl ventures my fifty years at rounder records. Welcome bill it'd be here so to roots music enthusiasts meet at tufts university in the sixties they share record collections. They see live music. Together and rounded records is born was at that easy in a way. I guess it was because we didn't set out to start a business. It was just something we put out a couple records and grew one might say organically high from their not having any particular ambitions not having any business plan anything could go wrong but more things went right than wrong and it evolved with a lot of help from a lot of people a lot of hard work. So what exactly was the early rounder. In your view. It wasn't a business obviously. And you mentioned that a few times in your book is more of a collective. I guess but how did you guys see this. I call it a hobby that got out of control. We were all graduate. Students pursuing other things marianne was a graduate student in history cannon early childhood education and myself in political science. You know it was early on so what we envisioned. Our ultimate careers might be mindless teaching. I actually started as a professor of political science. What's now the university of massachusetts at lowell. The very month. Before i records came out but You know what we would have done. Otherwise i don't know we might have started off on those careers and we might have stayed there or something else might have happened but who put a to record step first year october. Nineteen seventy then. We put out three the following year. But this wasn't a large number of records. It was kind of a hobby in some ways the third year that we put out nineteen albums that was beginning to become something very different definitely and it was strictly an on the job. Learning experience printing invoicing especially distribution the record industry independently. Ables was very very different in those days. It was kind of the wild wild west. Wasn't they would hit come before us. There were four or five other smaller independent labels that we kind of modeled ourselves after it was sizeable was vo- quays records. Another was our hooley that maybe had. I dunno forty or fifty albums out that time. I'm not really sure. They both was four digit numbering systems. So that's why we started with rounder. Zero zero zero one. It wasn't that we knew we would ultimately put out over a thousand albums though we did it just a numbering system that we adopted because we have.

"Five thousand dollars or more of gold and given how low our markups are fifty dollars off on a five thousand dollar. Purchase is a sizable reduction in the markup that that we charge. So if you want to get this deal. Fifty dollars off on a five thousand dollar purchase contacts shift gold and give them the promotion code nixon but also if i am right on how big this gold move is going to be the move. In the gold mining stocks is going to be even bigger because as much as gold itself is currently undervalued. The gold mining stocks are even more undervalued and so when this market turns those stocks have even more room to run in fact. I think the final bubble is going to be the bubble in gold stocks. And there's an old saying there's no rush like a gold rush especially when that rush is into gold mining stocks. So you want to make sure that you're positioned in these stocks before they heard finally wakes up to what we know and again i think the best way to position yourself for the coming. Boom in mining stocks is to invest in either the euro pacific goal fund. Which you can buy through the wraps your pacific capital europe civic asset management or you can even buy it at your local discount broker or to open up a separately managed account here at your pacific asset management for adrian day to manage a customized portfolio of mining stocks so in remembrance of what happened fifty years ago.

You know the way remember pearl harbor except fifty years ago the. Us government bombed our monetary system and our and those who do not remember history are doomed to repeat it. If you don't remember the decade of the nineteen seventies that followed this decision then you are going to repeat the losses that millions of americans endured throughout that decade because they had no idea the significance of what. Nixon did well fifty years ago. Nixon took the us off the gold standard soon. The world is going to go off the dollar standard.

"The can down the road and we've been kicking it for the last fifty years because just like nixon. No presidents want to make those decisions now of course once. We went off the gold. Standard inflation accelerated even further because instead of putting an end to those policies which staying on the gold standard would have required by leaving the gold standard those policies were accelerated and we had the stagflation of the nineteen seventies. And you know it's interesting to point out that both the secretary of the treasury and the federal reserve in hearings in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight before the us senate banking committee on the potential for going off the gold standard. Both of those guys testified that going off the gold standard would be good for the dollar. The dollar would gain value and gold would sink. They argued that gold was overvalued. And it was linked to the dollar. That was the reason it was overvalued. And if we severed the link the gold would sink. The dollar would soar when it was no longer way down by gold and inflation would be brought under control. The only person really that testified the opposite was my father who was an insurance agent who also testified and he testified correctly. That dollar backed by nothing would be worth a lot less than a dollar backed by gold. He warned that if we went off the gold. Standard inflation would soar. The price of gold would soar. And my father's testimony is the only testimony that stood the test of time and in fact one of the big problems we had in the one thousand nine hundred seventies was the arab oil embargo and a lot of people like to blame the high inflation of the nineteen seventies on opec for jacking up. The price of oil but opec didn't jack up the price of oil. We jacked down the value of the dollar that we were using to buy oil in nineteen seventy a barrel of oil costs just under three dollars. That was it by nineteen eighty at its peak. We were paying thirty nine dollars for a barrel of oil so thirteen fold increase in the price of oil in one decade. Now a lot of people think you're seeing the arabs. They really stuck into us. They jacked up the price of oil. Well that really isn't the story because what did we do. We reduced value of what we were giving opec in exchange for their oil because in one thousand nine hundred seventy. We were paying for oil with goal in eighty. We were paying for it in paper. There's a big difference. So in nineteen seventy when gold was thirty five dollars. An ounce and oil was just under three dollars a barrel..

"I mean why the twenty two cents. I've got no idea but forty two twenty. Two was the price i mean. I don't know maybe it was maybe room to twenty two which was a popular tv series. I think back then. Maybe the president was a fan. Who knows but forty two twenty two was the new official gold price. The reason that nixon was doing this is he was hoping to find a price. At which the market could stabilize and there would not be a loss of gold and we could go back on the gold standard but this devaluation was far too small and nixon realized it which is why there were no future devaluations and the window that was temporarily closed has remained shut for the last fifty years. Because if you think about it. There was a lot of inflation during the nineteen seventies imagine. How much higher depressive gold would have had to have risen to keep pace. In fact there was a lot of inflation in the nineteen sixties. There had been a lot of inflation in the united states since the introduction of the federal reserve in nineteen thirteen yet the price of gold had remained the same from nineteen thirty four so clearly gold was underpriced and it was even more underpriced in one thousand nine hundred seventy one given the big increase in inflation that we had during the nineteen sixties so nixon really had two choices he could have devalued the dollar far more substantially than what he did he could have really brought the gold price up to what it needed to be given how much inflation had been created. I'm sure that gold price would have had to have been north of one hundred dollars. An ounce even in one thousand nine hundred seventy one. But that was not something that nixon wanted to do. That would have been very embarrassing to admit that the us dollar had lost that much of its value relative to goal. Now the other alternative. Which would have been an alternative that i would have preferred would have been to have deflated. The bubble meaning massive cuts to government spending a contraction in the money. Supply tight money. That would have deflated. Bubbles would have caused prices to come back down consistent with our goal so either the price of gold had to go way up or the price of everything else had come way down but that would have been the only way to stay on the gold standard without an official devaluation and stopping the flow of gold at the united states. But neither of those choices was politically popular. So nixon did the expedient thing and just suspended the goal ceiling and just suspended convertibility of federal reserve notes to gold closed the window and that was what he thought was to get out of jail free card because now he didn't have to make either of those difficult choices they just kick.

"And then the fed had to reverse course they started cutting rates. If you recall they said it was a midcourt correction. They pretended that after the mid course correction they would resume the rate hikes on the road to normalization. I was the only one at the time again who said no. It's not a mid course. Correction that tightening cycle is over the next stop zero and of course that is exactly what happened and not only did they go back to zero but they reversed the quantitative tightening and they went back to quantitative easing and the balance sheet quickly soared beyond the previous peak. And now it's more than double that peak. Well i think this tightening cycle is going to be even shorter and the fed is going to accomplish. Even less i think that they will never even complete the taper. They may start it but they won't complete it. Meaning they'll never get to a point where they stop expanding the balance sheet and at some point they will ramp back up again with a new. Qe program and the rate at which the fed is monetize. The balance sheet in the future will exceed the rate at which kids monetize it now and when it comes to rate hikes. They're never going to happen. I think we're stuck at zero because right now the fed is claiming that the first rate hike is gonna come maybe at the end of two thousand twenty two and they're going to start the normalization process in two thousand twenty three well. The problem is before we get to the end. The twenty twenty two or twenty twenty three. The economy will either already be back in recession or teetering on the verge of recession. Which means those rate hikes aren't going to happen. They're going to be called off by the economic data and so the fed is pretending we're going to get to some kind of promised land that were never going to reach because on the journey something is going to happen and the fed's going to be back at zero or still at zero and increasing quantitative easing to try to fight off the recession or prop up a sagging stock market. Because that's the other thing that can happen between now and the end of twenty twenty two early twenty twenty three is the stock market starts to fall threatening to fall in a bear market territory. The fed can't allow that to happen. They can allow a reverse wealth effect. They've already built a recovery on the foundation of an asset bubble. So they can't let the acid bubble deflate without the recovery deflating. Along with it the key is when are the market's going to figure that out and start ignoring this inflation data and assuming that it's going to force the fed into a tightening mode sooner than later when the data is actually irrelevant. Defend is not going to fight inflation and in reality even tried to fight inflation inflation would win and so increasing and inflation inflation numbers..

"Dot com slash gold once again we got the perverse reaction in the markets both in the foreign exchange market and in the gold market. You saw a surge in the us dollar you saw a drop in the price of gold following these numbers because again these numbers were worse than expected on inflation and so traders the minute they see that the algorithms kick into their trading programs higher inflation that means the fed is going to be incentivized to accelerate the tightening process interest rate hikes are gonna come somewhat sooner the taper is gonna start earlier and therefore we need to sell gold and we need to buy the dollar. All of this of course completely misses the point that the fed isn't going to really tighten at all in fact. I think this is going to be the first tightening cycle that doesn't involve a single rate hike. The whole of this tightening cycle is going to be talk. None of it is going to be action. Now we may in fact start to taper. That may be the only thing that the fed does is reduce for a while. It's monthly purchases of us treasuries and mortgage backed securities. But they're not gonna stop buying treasuries and mortgage backed securities. Qe is never going to end what they may be able to do if they can pull off this which is not even a certainty but what they may be able to do is reduce the rate at which they are monetize government debt for a number of months so that qe get smaller but never stops and they will never get to the point where they actually can reduce their balance sheet so in other words the fed's balance sheet will continue to grow. We're not gonna have a temporary period of time like we did under the trump administration where the fed was actually able to reduce its four and a half trillion dollar balance sheet below four trillion. I mean it's now above eight and a quarter trillion and it's going to continue to go up forever. The only thing the fed may be able to do is for a short period of time slightly. Reduce the monthly rate of increase. But just like the tightening cycle that happened prior to cove it. This one is going to get cut short. Remember janet yellen always promised that rates were going to be normalized following that long period of zero percent interest rates and. I always said that that was never going to happen. That even if the fed started the rate normalization journey it would never complete it. And in fact i still think would have been one in done meaning the first quarter point rate hike. That yellen was able to pull off after years and years of procrastination that would have also been the last rate hike because remember we never got the second quarter point rate hike until after donald trump won the presidential election and shocked everybody and once trump won we had a rip roaring stock market and we had all sorts of optimism among small businesses. And it was in that environment of this potentially booming economy with fiscal stimulus and a soaring stock market that enabled yellen and then powell to slip through a few more rate hikes until they finally had to stop the process when we got to two and a half percent because under the weight of such a heavy increase the economy buckle the stock market tanked. We had the worst december since the great depression..

"We are so far beyond the feds target. Now i know a lot of people might say well who cares because again these are the prices of the stuff. Were exporting americans. Don't pay these prices. Foreigners pay these prices while that's true and foreigners may decide to buy less from us given the fact that we're raising prices so much but think about this logically. These numbers reflect domestic production costs. It's costing american companies a lot more to make stuff and so they're passing on their higher costs to their customers. It's not like american companies now have windfall profits. That were just jacking up. Prices and all the increases is dropping to the bottom line. It's not. They're trying to offset. The increases in production costs well if. Us companies are spending a lot more money to produce stuff that they export. Doesn't it stand to reason that. Us companies are experiencing similar. Cost pressures on the stuff. They don't export member. It's the same companies they're making some stuff and exporting it. And they're making some stuff and they're selling it domestically so if the cost of producing for exports is soaring wouldn't cost for producing for domestic consumption also be soaring sure. It's the same companies. It's the same workers that are making stuff to export. that are making stuff not to export. It's the same raw materials that go into the production process so this is a better indication of what's actually happening to production costs and prices in the united states then. Cpi now of course the compilation of what we export is different than what we don't export and in fact if you look at these numbers especially the numbers early in the year like january. What was really driving. The gains was increases in raw materials industrial metals agricultural products and so the percentage that those products make of our exports is a larger percentage of overall domestic consumption. So i think that the cost for what is being produced and not exported are probably up a bit less than the cost for exports. But i think this number this twenty three percent. Annualized number which is how hot numbers are coming in this year. I think that number is probably closer to the reality of the increase in the cost of living in the united states then is the cpi which on a year over year basis. What in the five five and a half percent range. I forget the exact number but also what should trouble a lot of people you know when you look over the compilation of our exports and see just what we're exporting versus. What we're importing. We export a lot of stuff that we just pull out of the ground or that we grow from the ground. We export raw materials stuff. That's here naturally in the land and we import a lot of finished products. I mean really. If you just look through the list we look like a third world nation. Once upon a time in america we were the big manufacturing powerhouse. We made all this stuff that we now import what we do now is. We export the raw materials so that we can import to finish goods that we no longer have the industrial capacity to produce ourselves. This is a huge sign of a decline in the power of the american economy. The productivity of the american economy and ultimately it is going to usher in a tremendous decline in the standard of living of americans. I know from experience. When you're running is small business is those. Hr issues that can really kill. You've got everything from wrongful termination lawsuits discrimination sexual harassment. Minimum wage requirements all sorts of labor regulations. And you know those. Hr manager salaries. They ain't cheap an average of seventy thousand dollars a year. That's where bambi comes in.

"Trade deficit is still going up. That's because the increases in import prices apply to a much larger dollar amount then. The increases in export prices do so the net effect is that we still have a rising trade deficit. That is going to keep going up but look at the year year increase in export prices in june that year over year increase was sixteen point eight that was revised up to sixteen point nine. The consensus was for a drop to sixteen point six instead. We have an increase of seventeen point two percent year-over-year increase in the cost of goods. That we are exporting. That is an all time record high in fact if you look at the export numbers for all of twenty twenty one thus far export prices are already up by thirteen and a half percent so far this year in seven months. If you annualize that out it comes to twenty three percent so if we keep up this pace for the entirety of the year our export prices will have risen by twenty three percent now. I don't think we're actually going to keep up this pace so my expectation is for the year to come in slightly below twenty percent. But still be. I think in all time record high. As far as the increase in the cost of our exports in fact here are the numbers thus far for twenty twenty one. Starting in january prices grows by two boys seven percent in one month. That's gotta be it all time record for a single month increase but two point seven percent january followed by one point six percent february two point five percent gain in march one point two percent in april two point three percent in may one point two percent in june and now one point three percent in july every single month prices gained by more than one percent and in two months. They gained more than two percent. In fact in january. We came close to three percents. These are monthly increases. Remember according to the fed its target is two percent. Inflation or slightly above prices are rising by two percent every two months there twelve months of the year..

"They consensus for. July was four point. Six percent increase in import prices again. That's a big jump in a single month but we only saw a point. Three percent rise in import prices so not nearly as bad as we thought and in fact the year over year increase in import prices was ten point two percent. That was a reduction of the eleven point. Three percent year-over-year increase. That consumers were paying as of last month and below the ten point seven percent year over year increase. That was expected but again. If you compare this number q the year-over-year increase in consumer prices. The import price number is almost twice. What the is now. Of course the cpi includes more services and these import prices are mainly dealing with goods. But even if you strip out the services. The goods component of the cpi is not nearly as high as the import prices. And that's because the import prices aren't adjusted. The government is actually reporting the price of the stuff that we're importing and those prices are up ten point two percent your rear that is double digit inflation. That is an honest number. Because they're just taking the prices and seeing how much higher they are. They're not adjusting. they're not using substitution. or he donna. That stuff like that that goes into the cpi now. Why does the government manipulate to cpi but not the import prices. Well because the fed is not making policy based on import prices the government is not reporting this as some indication of our hoste living social security colas capital. Gains taxes are not indexed to import prices. So the government doesn't have a vested interest. You rig this plus. They're looking for accurate information to try to measure the price of what we're importing and so they use the actual numbers and so these numbers are a much better indicator of what's actually happening to prices than what the government is. Pretending is happening to prices when you look at the official measures like the consumer price index. But where the numbers are really bad is when it comes to our export prices now of course when it comes to trade it is in theory a good thing that our export prices are going up. Because that's the suffer. Exporting so we want to get more but the real way to win on your exports is not when the price of your exports is going up. It's when the quantity of your exports are going up. Because if the price of your exports are going up your exports may become uncompetitive and you may actually see a reduction. So it's really good is if you can export a lot more. And maybe even cutting prices the unit prices because you're more efficient but then make it up on volume and have bigger exports. The consensus was for a point. Eight percent gain in export prices following the one point two percent jump in june. Well instead we got a one point. Three percent increase in export prices for july again. These are the prices that farmers are paying for what we're exporting. So we're earning those higher prices which again in the short run is good but in the long run it may not be if farmers end up substituting other goods because maybe prices are not going up as fast on goods that are being produced in other countries and certainly today's numbers indicate that because our import prices only went up point three while our export prices went up one point three that suggests that inflation inside. The united states is worse than it is outside the united states. But it also means that we're becoming less competitive but because we currently import so much more than we export..

"That's sixty six thousand eight hundred dollar increase over the prior year but despite the fact that mortgage interest rates are at all time record lows affordability thanks to rising. Prices is also at an all time record low and another thing. That's at an all time record. Low is the premium that people pay for new homes relative to what they pay for. Existing homes meaning. Buying a used house is very close to the same price as buying a new house. It's as close as ever been and ask because we're not getting new homes being built because the economy doesn't have the resources to construct them the raw material. Prices are now so high. The labor costs are so high that it's very expensive to build. So they're not doing it. And so if you wanna buy a house chances are you're going to have to buy a house that already exists now. Obviously this is very good for people who have a home that they want to sell because they can get a great price. They don't have a lot of competition. But it's not good for somebody who's in the market to buy a home particularly if it's your first home so a lot of people who might like to buy a home but can't afford it even with rock bottom interest rates are renting instead which is why rents are also surging at a record pace yet despite double digit your over your rent increases in reality and despite that twenty three percent year over year increase in home prices according to the government when they calculate the cpi which supposedly includes thirty three percent rent the government is saying that your rent is just is up just two and a half percent well. How does the government manufacturer this. I mean how did they do this. Magic trick of converting twenty three percent increases in home prices. And i don't know eleven. Twelve percent increases in rance. How do they make all that disappear and instead make two and a half percent increase. Replace that wealth through the magic of owners equivalent rant again. I've talked about it and it's just another way that the government rigs the cpi so that we don't actually see just how bad inflation actually is but one place where you can see how bad inflation is is import export prices. We got those numbers for july on friday and it was a mixed bag because import prices came in with a smaller than expected increase and that followed a pretty big increase in the prior month in june import prices rose one percent and in fact friday. They revise that increase to one point one percent so a little bit higher..

"A lot of them are citing big increases in their cost as a reason that they're not earning as much as analysts had expected and that is because the producers have been dragging their feet when it comes to passing on. The price increases to their customers. One of the reasons is because the producers also believed all the propaganda coming out of the government. The fed that inflation was transitory. And so the producers. Figured you know what they'll just wait it out. They'll eat the higher costs for a little while because its transitory. So why reprise. All our products risk upsetting our customers when we just have to grin and bear it for a few months of transitory inflation and then the prices will come back down and everything will be fine well as time goes by and this narrative is not playing out inflation instead of being transitory and getting better is persistent and getting worse. What you're going to see. And this is what i'm saying from. The beginning is the producers are gonna throw in the towel on holding back on passing down. The full cost increase to their customers. And so the consumer price index is going to catch up to the producer price index. Now if you believe it doesn't right. If producers are just going to absorb these higher costs indefinitely that's very bad for corporate profits. The reality is the stock market is ignoring all of this data. The dow jones. The s&p finished the week in record territory on friday. Both of those indexes closed at record highs ignoring the margin pressures that are being put on companies by rising costs that are not being passed on now of course if the rising costs ultimately are passed on which i believe they will will then that is gonna mean. Consumer prices are going to be rising much faster which will accelerate in theory anyway. The feds tightening cycle. So however you want to look at increases in producer prices if they don't pass them on to consumers it's bearish for stocks because margins go down and earnings go down if they do pass on the increases it should also be bearish for stocks because that means higher inflation at the consumer level which means the fed is going to be tightening more which is also going to be buried for stocks so either way..

"fifty year" Discussed on The Peter Schiff Show Podcast

"I'm my last podcast. I went over the consumer price index. Which for the first time. This year didn't beat expectations. It actually matched expectations and certain aspects of the report came in slightly cooler than what the markets expected. I also discussed the perverse reaction in the gold market. Which of course is now par for this bizarro. Course that we've been playing on. Gold rallied on the relief that the inflation numbers weren't worse-than-expected than expected because from the traders perspective. That might have meant that. The fed would delay its tightening cycle. And so anything. That delays tightening is interpreted as being bullish for gold and of course the reverse is also true if something makes tightening slightly more eminent. Well that's automatically a negative for gold. And that's exactly what happened on thursday when we got the release of producer prices and unlike consumer prices that p p i did not break streak of exceeding expectations because for the seventh month in a row the ppi came out hotter than expected and in june. The ppi shot up a full one percent during the month which was more than the markets expected. The expectations for july were further gain to only be point six now. Of course point six is still a huge gain. Remember this is just one month but the markets thought that we couldn't possibly have another number as high as the number after all right it's transitory inflation so at some point the rate has to come down. Well we ended up getting another one percent gain in july not only exceeding expectations but once again exceeding the upper bound of the range of expectations which went from a low of point three to a high of point nine on a year over year basis. They were expecting the producer price index to go up by seven point three percent instead it rose by seven point eight percent also looking at the other numbers the month over month core taking out food and energy again last month the core was up one percent. They were looking for a point five percent increase in july instead. Another one percent increase in the core that means the year-over-year core which was expected to be five point. Six came out at six point two percent. Also if you dig down deeper and takeout food energy and trade services that was supposed to come in at point five and instead it came in at point nine so beats across the board when it comes to the ppi in fact if you look at the year to date increase in producer prices just so far in twenty twenty one. they're producer. Prices have risen by seven point eight percent in seven months if you look at the increase year to date. That's the first seven months of the year producer. Prices are already up by six point. Four percent in just seven months so if you analyze those gains and extrapolate it for the entire twenty one producer. Prices will rise eleven percent in this year. it's already a record increase since they began tracking which doesn't include in one thousand nine hundred seventy s. Apparently this particular series does not go back to the seventies but as far as it goes back the year over year increase of seven point. Eight is already a record but clearly we're going to beat that record certainly by the end of twenty twenty one in fact look at the numbers that we've seen so far for the first seven months of the year we got one point. Two was the increase in january followed by point seven and february point eight in march point seven in april point eight in may one percent in june one percent in july. Does anything about that. String of numbers suggest transitory. Does anything suggest that the trend is reversing and that we're seeing a reduction in the rate of increase of producer prices. Not at all. And what does this portend for consumer prices because year to date consumer prices are lagging producer prices. And you get a lot of these companies that are coming out with earnings..

"Seven conclusion the coolest greater equality. Greg greater rights for lgbt bt. People like many others is served by having a white white area of free speech and any limits on listen quite extreme cases. Free speech means nothing if it doesn't include the rise of people with whom i disagree so i'm open to people criticizing me. That's their right like even do so in quite strong robust language providing the inside bottom so make false damaging allegations. That's why are a number of occasions. I have defended christian street preaches who have spoken out against homosexuality but they haven't been threatening or abusive just expressed the point of view. And i believe their right but he quickly. i don't believe they should be prosecuted as criminals. We have to challenge them protest against them. Show why they're wrong but criminalization is a step too far. Which side of the line would would you put insulting. There is no right in human rights law to not be insulted or not be offended the right to make strong rebuffs criticisms to ridicule sata other points of view that is perfectly just must in a free society. I've is involved with the national second society in a campaign to remove the insult close from the public order. Act nineteen ninety-six. We argued that insult was too low threshold to justify a criminal offense. We got together with a very broad coalition including seven. Pays like admittedly. David davis with whom i do not normally agree and successfully persuaded the government to repeal the insult close from the public order. Act now that was a very significant victory for free speech. We followed up that success with a further success. A short time afterwards against a government bill that sought to penalize causing nuisance or annoyance. We said these were vague. Subjective terms that could be open to very wide abuse an- again we persuaded the government to drop those clauses and finally pizza. What would you say. The main obstacles that remain to achieving full. Lgbt plus collapsed in britain. Today we have made great progress here in britain but we should never forget that right up until nineteen ninety. Nine britain had by volume the largest number of anti lgbt plus laws of any country in the world. Some of them dating back centuries yet. Fourteen years later with the legalization of same sex marriage and twenty thirteen britain had some of the best lows. That is a phenomenally successful lower phone campaign but there are still issues five win. We're still battling to secure a ban on l. gb plus conversion therapy to reform agenda vacation. Act to give trans people right to self. Ide- buys touched declaration which exist in many other countries and of course to secure lgbt plus inclusive education in schools with no exemptions opt-outs for faith organizations. And all these three issues. It is religious organizations that are kicking back trying to block progress. The number one focus of resistance to lgbt plus rights in britain and around the world is organized religion. The good news is that religion.
