Stablecoins in the Hot Seat: Powell Calls Bitcoin a Substitute for Gold

"There was an absolute flurry of content and commentary yesterday around the place of bitcoin. Stable coins defy and the digital asset industry as a whole vis-a-vis. Us government regulation as well as how a digital dollar might shake that all up before we get into it. Let's at the terms of the debate. One of the competitors for this cycles top fudd is the government will ban it if it gets sufficiently threatening now to be clear banning depending on your sister could mean anything from an outright ban of use in holding too forceful seizure too limiting access to on and off ramps to the more benign from a commercial standpoint but no less threatening from a privacy standpoint integration of the full crypto infrastructure into the am l. kyc. Money surveillance apparatus. I've spent some time on this show looking into global versions where this fudd seems to be playing out in particular. We've been watching the evolving situation in india and nigeria india which seems gearing up for a bill that would have some sort of outright ban although at least one finance minister says that that's not the case and nigeria. Where the central bank of nigeria. I reiterated that banks should not be working with crypto users which they've then subsequently rolled back just a little bit either way however really what everyone has been focused on is the us particularly in the context of a new administration. The last administration had friends and foes alike when it came to bitcoin and crypto trump. Famously tweeted that he did not like bitcoin or crypto. But we didn't really take that seriously as a threat because it was so clearly about zuckerberg and libra mnuchin was a much bigger enemy. Probably wrote that text for trump's tweet even and clearly wanted to tighten the reins in his final act. He was trying to require exchanges to collect more information. When users transferred crypto to their own wallets on the flip side however there was brian brooks who was absolutely revolutionary at the office of the comptroller of the currency. The changes he oversaw are a huge reason. Why so many big institutions are now playing in this space. Why so many big traditional banks feel like they have to race to catch up to allow people to offer their customers crypto services however as we know from physics every action has a reaction and to some extent one reason why observers are so keenly watching the biden administration is to see how much they're going to respond or try to walk back with brooks in the occ changed on top of that. As the biden administration has come to power the price and volume around bitcoin stable coins and the rest of the digital asset industries have made them much more on ignore -able last time joe biden was in office. Bitcoin is about four hundred and thirty bucks. Now it's been over fifty thousand dollars for sixteen days in a row tether was barely out of diapers now. It has a market supply above forty billion in his doing upwards of one hundred billion dollars in volume per day combined with us dc. And you've got over. Fifty billion dollars of usd approximates there so lot more is at stake with that. People have been watching. Two things has come in and what they're saying on the who has come inside. Janet yellen is back for another round although this time is treasury secretary rather than as he chair gary genzer to is back. Although this time is as he c- chair. Instead of cftc chair of these two there is much more optimism around gessler who has done a pretty fair bit of work to understand where the crypto industry is coming from even teaching a course at mit about bitcoin and blockchain. And of course we have someone who still around in the form. Of jay powell. The federal reserve chairman. His ex factor. And all these discussions is the potential of a central bank digital currency a digital dollar. That could potentially shift the us's relationship with these projects now in terms of what we've seen these actors say so far over the last few months up until now it's been pretty standard fare one part. There's a lot of exciting potential here. One part we have to protect investors though and one part but it's also used by criminals over the last couple of days however we've gotten both comments and news that could shift as into our next phase of understanding what the us is relationship with. Bitcoin stable coins and other digital assets is going to look going forward. So let's talk about powell speaking about cdc's and cryptos at a bank for international settlements panel yesterday. Let's talk about the announcement of digital dollar prototypes coming this summer. And let's talk about new draft fat. If guidelines around cryptocurrencies. I up powell. Did a session yesterday with leaders from the bank for international settlements including augustine carstens. We talked about last week. He was asked about crypto currencies. And whether he saw them as a threat. And here's what he said. We call them crypto assets. You know. they're they're highly volatile. See bitcoin and therefore not real useful as a store of value in there not backed by anything. They're more of an asset for speculation. So they're also not particularly in use as a means of payment. It's more speculative asset. That's it's essentially a substitute for gold rather than for the dollar. And i think with crypto acids the the the public needs to understand the risks. The principle thing is there's the volatility there's also the outsized energy requirements requirement for for mining. And the fact that they're not backed by anything so let's break out these three reasons that he wasn't particularly impressed by cryptos. I this idea of volatility or that. It's just an asset for speculation. Basically he's dismissing bitcoin and any other crypto as something that he does not have to stress about or really factor into his consideration around global monetary competition while many. Bitcoin is grabbed onto the essentially a substitute for gold piece as a great tweet and knocked to the gold bugs. Who they're trying to convert or at least undermined powell was saying this more. Like a giant shooing away. A fly gold is to him clearly. Irrelevant an unimportant antiquated part of the fiat system that he sits at the helm of in that way a substitute for that thing does not present a threat

6 essential lessons for women leaders

"And goes ten years ago. When i became prime minister of australia i assume that at the start they would be a strong reaction to me. Being the first woman about it would obeyed over time. And then i would be treated the same. As savory out. The prime minister head bain was so wrong. That didn't happen the longer. I governed the more visible the sexism became. I don't want any other woman to be blindsided like that. That's why i'm so excited about working with you to help. Women get ready to lead in what is still a sexist world. I share that sense of excitement. After i was finance minister of nigeria was overwhelmed by the number of women who wanted me to be the mental. It is terrific that aspiring young women are keen to learn from those who have gone before. But they're still too few female role models especially women of color now. As a result of the work we have done together. I can offer everyone. Class standout lessons. That tabbies just of my own experience. What on the global research on women and leadership and the candidate sites of leading women one of the things to share. Is that this joy in being a leader in having the opportunity to put your values into action emphasizing. The positive makes a real difference to the power of role modeling if we only focus on the sexist negative experiences. Women may decide that being a latest. Sound so grim. They don't want to do it on the other hand if we pretend it so rosy and easy women and girls can be put off because they decide. Leadership is only for super women who never have any problems. We all have to get the balance right but in ghozi. It's impossible to talk about role models right now without asking you. How does it make you feel to see. Camera harris elected as vice president. I'm delighted it's important to the association of girls and women that they see role models. They can relate to vice president-elect terrace exactly that kind of role model particularly for girls and women of color and every woman who steps forward makes small space for the women will come next of course both of us know from and experiences that even win women get to the top unfortunately too much time and attention will be spent on what they looked like rather than what they do and say and ghozi for women. Is it still all about the head. Certainly julia. I laughed when hillary clinton said she envied by dress style and particularly my signature scuff. So i don't need to worry about my hair. Like many of women leaders have effectively adopted a uniform. a colorful one. it's african. it's me. I have developed my own style that i wear every dan. I don't vary from it. That has helped protect me from endless discussion of my appearance. It's helped me to get people to listen to my words not look at my clothes. Hillary told us she lost the equivalent of twenty four four days of campaign time in the two thousand sixteen election getting her hair and makeup done every day but actually contemporary problems for women leaders go far deeper than anything to do with looks at better. Warn now about to use the would. Many people would find rude. My favorite funny moment. He now travels was discussing resting bitch. Face with prime minister earner solberg of norway. the global research shows that if a man comes across strong and bishops. Even so faking. That's fine but if a woman does it in the reactions against her can be as visceral as revulsion or contain. They pretty mind bogglingly. Strong words happy. They certainly are women. Lee does talk about intuitively understanding that to be viewed as acceptable as a leader. They have to stay balanced on a tightrope between strength an empathy if they come across as too tough there viewed as hard unlikable but if they come across as too soft there seemed to be lacking the backbone needed to lead the problem. Is we still all have sexist stereotypes wearing in the back of our brains. I was portrayed as out of touch. Because i don't have children as even compared to a barren cow in the bush. Distant to be killed for hamburger means. That's horrible at you. Face that stereotype. While i was worried that people will think i couldn't do my job. My family was young. I enjoyed token to new zealand's prime minister justin that dan about experience as its second woman ever to have a child while being national leader. I was very taken by. Has saying she doesn't think she gets the work life balance right

Lost in twenty twenty so far it's the steepest fall in employment since records began in Nineteen ninety-five Simon French is chief economist at Pamela. Gordon will the current UK unemployment rate is four point one percent, and that has stayed remarkably low in the first few months of the pandemic partly because of the Sports Games, that job retention scheme in particular which its height supported the jobs of more than eight million workers. But a spike up to double digit unemployment right is nothing conceivable I don't think it actually will go that high. I think it's more likely to be high single digits but that's still as spike of numbers terms probably a million, two, million half additional people who are either unemployed or underemployed, and now will be a real headwind to growth not just in twenty twenty one. But I think for a couple of years thereafter and the quandary.

That's the BBC news. This is discovery from the BBC. I'm Jim Al Khalili. And in today's program, I'm in conversation with a leading scientist about their life and research. Welcome to the life Scientific My guest today has done everything he can to tackle a problem that is not going to go away air pollution. Frank Kelly was one of the first scientists to prove the toxic particles in the air. Put there by cars, Busses, trains, planes, power plants, factories can damage our lungs long before most of us gave their pollution of second thoughts. He set up an extensive network of monitoring stations to measure air quality in London on developed ways of modeling air pollution in the capital that have been adopted around the world. When the UK government was encouraging us all to buy diesel cars to help reduce the 02 emissions. He warned that emission from diesel engines will be worse for our lungs but to no avail. The past 10 years. He's chaired the government committee on the medical effects of air pollution Professor Frank Kenny from Imperial College. London. Welcome to the life Scientific. Thankyou, Jim. Well, Frank, I don't know what the air is like where you are. But one of the upsides of the current Corona virus locked down does seem to be that there is less air pollution. That's definitely true. You just need to look at the blue skies above your most day since the lock tightness developed and you can see much less traffic on the roads, and that means that we've got a lot fewer emissions has the reduction in traffic made a real difference. It has. It has made this enormous difference about 50% reduction in this gas nights and dark side. However, it's not totally good news. They're pollutants fall into different categories, and the biggest fall has been associated with this guy inspection, Darkseid. Which is produced in large quantities from diesel vehicles. The other pollutants deceased tiny particles, which have been associated with a lot of health effects on these tiny particles haven't really changed that much. And that's because people still have to heat their homes. They still have to cook and they're still other activities going on. I guess in a way, this is the perfect natural experiment for you. What you went. Lock down is over. We will you be able to analyze the data and work out what are the worst offenders when it comes to air pollution? Well it It's a fantastic natural experiment on one we could never have afforded a front. So yes, we really must use this opportunity to understand what the implications of our certain sources, while Frank Kelly will certainly come back to talking about air pollution of it later. But first of all, to find out a bit more about you. You grew up in Belfast during the troubles went to grammar school and then onto Queen's University in Belfast, where you studied physiology. Were you a keen student? To be honest, Probably not to my to my friends and to my lecturers. I remember not being that excited. I think during the 1st 3 years of my degree However, in the fourth year, which was totally dedicated to undertaking a research project. I actually really became interested in the workings of the body, and that really Turned me on to science, and the project I undertook was was really an eye opener for me. So what did you do when you graduated, Frank? You know, I had worked hard for four years and I promised myself a good vacation after that, and I ended up traveling to the U. S on that was really a fantastic experience that that somewhere of 1979 And while I was in America, having a fantastic time playing rugby and meeting lots of new people, I had a phone call one day from one of the other lecturers in the physiology Department of Queens, and he had applied for on one funding for.

S. dollars so far the only usually that means that they are able to import from and you're going to be a hundred countries at the same time tool is easy arguments for both package that has been approved today by the ministers and governors to fifty twenty ensure that is sufficient equities available to both countries to imagine economies in addition to obviously that's what the lions and the blues that are available for the central bank said packages that that be acknowledged the talking with about this remarkable move by the G. twenty earlier today try supports of the economies around the world Mr Mr let's come back and go to a little bit more specifics as I understand it important part of this was to suspend the payments on Saturday is this a restructuring do you anticipate a longer term restructuring a some of the data from these countries of course of course I think the idea is widely selection in may take time for bilateral agreements to be put in place we wanted to make sure that we didn't waste time two twenty and the soldiers who have committed to a swift and significant actions immediately so the suspension will give us time will give you a good countries and to consider rescheduling that even at a leave from some of the debt the next three to six months that we think would be needed to ensure that we close that chapter so we have a question from a viewer a Bloomberg view here they like to ask you I find it interesting that if you ask is is it possible this crisis might be an opportunity to consider further opening of the Saudi capital markets to foreign capital is that possibly on the table absolutely I mean so the capital markets have slipped into LAX significantly over the last three years no we received significant and with investment from international investors and PS up salute please we will do whatever it takes to ensure that you have access to internet services into the Saudi market and finally Mister minister I can't talk to the official I talk about oil obviously it's been having a very tough time we had the put plus actual global agreement try to curtail production at this point do you anticipate more is going to need to be done to really get some floor under oil because that is affecting the global economy almost as much as the crown of ours at the moment I think it could be a significant agreement accepting deeds has outlined literally through the OPEC and non OPEC plus agreement but also participation from producing countries from outside they'll become the club's signifies that the rules and it is six one two six we need to ensure that markets as balanced as we have been doing for decades the fact that the G. twenty energy ministers had an extraordinary meeting a couple of days back we can dedicate Evenson and committed to ensuring that the market stability is key to face covered nineteen we would continue considering whatever action is needed to ensure that the markets well incident with them but also that and the world is is impacted in a lot of sexism and we were watching the six of the ten most impacted and designing solutions that within six the IMF now expects Saudi Arabia's economy to shrink by two point three percent to twenty twenty in the United Arab Emirates real GDP growth is seen falling to negative three point five percent compared to growth of a one point three percent last year but the fund does expect economies to bounce back to growth in twenty twenty one we have always very Salem head of institutions at the month security it's not surprising that it's coming in late it'll be mentioning it come off and I believe that most investors have already tries to only laws situation and it's not going to be easy for everyone to actually cope with the changes now the good thing about the reported that the chill some sort of gross back in twenty twenty one assuming that the whole situation is contained in the coming year future saying six or six months or until the end of the year and Saudi Arabia they are racing to contain the epidemic especially at some of the busier holiest sites in the west of Saudi Arabia are you concerned that the timeline in Saudi Arabia is going to be very different from what we could see in United Arab Emirates in terms of return to a semi normal way of functioning no more each and every country uses the same strategy to actually contain the spread of the virus or even coming back to a normal life even here in the UAE if we are to talk about the plan we just hoping that as soon and as soon as they are actually discussing but nothing seems to be clear until the number of cases toward decreasing and you start seeing a recent payment on the whole situation boxing actually believe that the economy is going to start to covering our issues are going to get back to our normal live starting going back to work and actually the whole economy be boosting already covering accused have you re calibrated any of your calls when it comes to Saudi assets yeah the moment be reading actually the new balance and be considered despondent about the Saudi actors it's about the hold portfolios if we gonna be discussing dots we're not seeing any more any sort of long term investments in the portfolio that we are all looking out on the country people are just looking at the opportunities and these are coming on a daily basis and the stock markets in particular if we are to discuss the it's very difficult at the moment to actually S. salsa and you for the long term investment or even medium to long term investment because as long as the other situation the panoramic is not contained is not clear where it's heading or where it's starting to shrink it's gonna be very difficult to look at fundamentals on the truck or bodies of companies that invest in in terms of what the finances are doing in the United Arab Emirates demi they're getting hit from every angle here be at lower rates or the NMC's scandal or the corona virus but you might you might be seeing some green shoots here's well evaluation now I mentioned Dr hold secure region of the U. each finance is not just strictly connected to the corona virus out in the end and she found the locks on the house that had given the huge votes for the financial sector and the banking sector in particular in the UAE but we still cannot actually how they clear view on how they're heading towards booking their provisions and accounting for the long term we actually look at the results of the negotiations happening between the new management hi Nancy Dillinger's where else are you seeing opportunities very and in the wider Gulf even if it is in other assets in the United Arab Emirates maybe looking at equities your play is a bit misleading given that you are so cost is what where else should capital be the ploy not at all what we see in the real estate sector in the local market and probably in the region as well prices have gone extremely little transaction increases so probably somewhere around real estate maybe another part so far six income the bond markets or any of those could be also interesting aspects to look out if we're looking at something longer than on the easy short term stating that the investors are used to could be a scenario where the United Arab Emirates actually leads other country in terms of a potential re opening a gradual normalization because they were a little bit late coming to the game but then now with very strict measures you could argue if they contain it correctly they might be able to step ahead of others I mean is there a rebound scenario that you see is likely to to play out and now I'm with the UAE rescinded that and having a lot of plans in place and even the timeline that make a more or less put in place to actually start three opening and getting back to normal life is that sooner than any of the other countries that are around us and we do will definitely to get back to that because I believe it's not about the outcome of the current situation doctor you'd consider we'd start climbing how did the cover is going to take place because that's the most critical seasons of the whole situation is UP next we look at how the region's mining industry is adapting to the restrictions around the corona virus we are from the new CEO of the Saudi Arabian mining company next this is the number.

upheaval upheaval for many months that is in a lesbian who believe is an Algerian reception at the American University of Beirut and a contributor to the Washington institute for Near East policy and he joins us now welcome to the program said not much change in the new cabinet then what do you make of it I said I think the shape of the government was not that was not surprising it's in a typical governments the with the the basically the Croats to manage the economic and social crisis crises of the point the only surprising facts for me is that it's going to it's it's has thirty nine ministers while in the midst of the come across is that so that's love that's the that's the that's a big number of ministers do you go by the five female ministers as well including exactly exactly which makes me which makes me think or even expect the change in the government's within this year I think it's just the caretaker government from now to do we we have a review of the constitution and then we have the early sets of elections and then we will have a political government right other other other than that nothing surprising about this guy sure Algeria still mass protests last February which led to the unseating of President Bush Flicka this cabinet could be seen as a signal couldn't it of continuity in it may just state policies what do you think the protesters might make of this I think the producers are gonna are gonna continue to pressure the in the in the system on the government to get more concessions well I think for the protesters this government doesn't really matter what matters for them is the freedom of expression the freedom of assembly gets in more on the more concessions from the system gets in their political prisoners out the file to out of prison other than that the they they the within three to care about this government's because for them they have retrieved public spaces and good pressure this government at any point they want well you get the talent isn't this than a a possibly a good gesture roaches and reporting that seventy protesters who would detain during those prayed protests that they've been released it is this could be a significant right exactly however not all political prisoners were released we're expecting more prisoners to be released on Sunday and Monday so the the priority for Audrey ought to serve as a right right now at this point is to get all of their old all of their parts good prisoners out for example today there they're gonna they're gonna process the gun and unexpected also large protest to demand the release of the remaining political prisoners and then we would we would be seeing what Jerry and processors demented more freedom of expression more for more freedom of the press and freedom of assembly slammed then we may see some changes within the political system itself because of four I think I think that the political system is has reached a point where it's so weak that the it is given as many concessions as it code so that it could to put an end to the poor that too the proudest moments okay so the new president has often dialogue as well to the protest is would they welcome that and if and because this is what the new government has been saying now since coming into a pile of wood they welcome that and when will that opportunity present itself do you think I think the protesters would would welcome that as soon as all political prisoners that out on this one as there are other there are there other route the ski conditions such as freedom others at the freedoms assurance freedoms of the Algerians are guaranteed at once that happens I think most of the most of the political and social actors would welcome this dialogue initiative okay I don't I don't think there's governments would be responsible for the dialogue a think we are gonna we're we're about to see another entity for the dialogue because this government is basically just a matter of the social and economic crises and to avoid the total collapse right the the dialogue to fix the political aspect of this crisis the would come from other neutral parties right thank you very much that says a

"New York group of twenty finance ministers in Japan this weekend. With many worrying allow the trade tensions are hindering global economic growth. A dissenting voice, the US finance minister Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who said, quote, I don't think in any way that the slowdowns you're seeing in parts of the world are the result of trade tensions at the moment. Let's consider this more by turning to the BBC's veteran economics correspondent Andrew Walker in London. Good morning, Andrew. Hello. David. Is there a strong case that slowing growth round the world might be due to the US taking this hard line on trade? I'll state my neck out David, I'm normally one has to be as a BBC correspondent, you have to be awfully ballots about these things. But yes, my view is the tariffs are at the very least a significant drag on economic growth, the war expansion of the global economy. We've had was accompanied by and many would say to a significant extent dribble. By the removal of trade barriers in the expansion of international comas. And so, yes, situation where business decisions of being influenced either by the fact of tariffs, all by the possibility that, that might be more in the future means decisions about where to produce things, what to produce how much perhaps note going to be the best they could be. Of course, it's not just trade tensions causing slowdowns hither and yon. No, it's not just about trade. That suddenly true, but I find it hogged to resist the conclusion that the slowing global growth is not at least partly due to that injury Walker's the BBC's economics correspondent Andrew. Thank you. My pleasure. David checking markets. Dow futures.
