"The biden administration has shrunk its infrastructure proposal in a bid to find common ground with republicans but as npr's windsor johnston reports. The two sides remain far apart. The biden administration has presented congressional republicans with point seven. Trillion dollar counterproposal. About five hundred billion dollars. Less than its original offer. White house press secretary. Jen psaki says the proposal exhibits the administration's willingness to come down in size. It does so largely by cutting from areas where there is bipartisan.

"five hundred billion dollars" Discussed on Ron Paul Liberty Report
"Pain you could just have moderate to high inflation and that we believe the fed has for sure set into motion. That is absolutely right. And i think what we're going to see though in this transition we can't predict because i don't think we've ever been at this spot. We're in right now because You know when when they'd run into a problem. The economy is turning down. They need something. They kept lowering industries and for longtime They got away with that. And then they'd bump it up and have have a mini recession. Got bigger and bigger and then when work and finally in the year two thousand with the conclusion of the housing bobble they were. It was in a lot of trouble so that was when the qe started and at the time The global death at that time you know the sovereign debt when you add it up. It was huge. It was eighty seven trillion dollars. And they worried about that and how to do it. But but They had it on the books and long as the dollar was strong and they would. The dollar managers could take care of it. That was fine. But now there's another problem in the imf yellen just announced. You know what they're what they're after. Want the imf to do in. That is to monetize that they want the imf to start getting the special drawing rights which sit around there and there is absolutely international and some people they think they can make an international currency out of which they can. That's that's not going to happen. Even though the fed wholesome gold and a few other thing that can't happen but the problem is is they're going to exchange str's for sovereign debt. We're countries are bankrupt and no argument is. Oh we're going to do this. Because there's a lot of poor countries of live beyond their me and we're going to help the indigent in third world nation which is a bunch of baloney. They're going to have they. Were gonna try to prevent some of us from becoming third world countries by bailing them out with s. The are the global debt now went from eighty seven trillion dollars to two hundred and eighty one trillion dollars and here. They're saying that We're we're going to start off with a five hundred billion dollars a year of creating these. Str's out of thin air where they can exchange for sovereign debt and pretend that the str's representing more wealth than some of the sovereign debt. And there'll be a time when You know people even with dollars would rather have something of that. And i think that's why they're looking for alternate currencies around the world and this. This is something that its way out of control and won't work..
Think a coronavirus economic package is just around the corner? Not so fast.
"Headlines coming out of capitol hill. This week might have you think. Another round of much-needed coronavirus relief is just a few details away. After months of stalemate since the last relief significant bill was passed back in march. It looks like there is finally some momentum peel back the veneer just a little however and the reality reveals itself to be far more complicated. Let's go through the three options that have captured the imagination of lawmakers and advocates alike. Even more may eventually be thrown onto the negotiating table and elements of each of these may bleed into the others but let's not make this too messy at least not at first one. A bi partisan group of senators on tuesday unveiled a nine hundred and eight billion dollars proposal that looked to split the difference between house. Democrats two point four trillion dollar offer and senate republicans six hundred and fifty billion dollar offer. Part of the total cost would come from some of the five hundred billion dollars in unspent money from the last round of relief so the price tag is a little misleading. It's a stopgap measure that has growing support from rank and file lawmakers who are finding it more and more difficult to justify inaction in pursuit of the perfect. This proposal would stretch through the first fiscal quarter of calendar year. Twenty twenty one or until the end of march and cobble together one hundred and sixty billion dollars to fund a state and local governments that are running on fumes as tax revenue has dried up with the economic downturn. The measure also has more than three hundred billion dollars in loans and grants for small businesses. Twenty five billion dollars in relief for renters an extra three hundred dollars per week for unemployed americans it does not however include an extra twelve hundred dollar stimulus payment. That house speaker. Nancy pelosi and president. Donald trump both backed treasury secretary. Steven mnuchin said. He was reviewing the bipartisan proposal. The white house called it a nonstarter saying it. Plan to work with senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell and house minority leader kevin mccarthy on targeted covid relief plan to pelosi and senate minority leader. Chuck schumer have their own democrats only outlined for a new offer. They haven't released details but it was sent over to mcconnell in a private letter on monday. The draft was meant to restart negotiations which have been on hold for weeks in most unhelpful. Move mcconnell announced the offers existence and further frustrated democrats who say republicans aren't negotiating in good faith. Democrats have insisted cash be included for state and local governments a major point of dispute for many republicans. Who say it's not washington's problem to fix local budgets. No total cost was attached. Three mcconnell circulated to republicans a new version of the gop plan that would presumably meet with white house approval notably it to did not include a cost meaning to was meant as a negotiating document. The latest incarnation includes small business. Cash a one month extension of base-level unemployment benefits that are set to end at the end of this month. For twelve million americans and legal protections against lawsuits for businesses that are open during the pandemic it notably lacks money for state and local governments. The latest also a plus up unemployment benefits that had been demanded by the white house in earlier drafts in short. Each of these is negotiating. Starting point not a workable idea even lawmakers were at the table for the creation of these ideas acknowledged. they're nowhere near final version. And when you're talking about deals that have perhaps twelve zeros at the end. There's a lot of wrangling left to be done. Meanwhile at least some officials are starting to talk again pelosi. Mnuchin had their first call since election day this week. The pair were the principal negotiators on a follow up deals through the summer until trump abruptly called off negotiations via tweet in october. He later demanded they return. But pelosi wasn't keen to once again. Be set up for failure by amir curiel president in the finals ros of campaign and decided to hold out for the election results. It turns out. Her hand is now weaker as house. Democrats lost seats. President elect joe biden has been in full contact with pelosi and schumer speaking to reporters in delaware on tuesday biden. Said he wants congress to act now. As a first step toward efforts he'd pick up when he takes office on january twentieth but he mcconnell have yet to speak since election day he added for his part. Mcconnell has yet to explicitly say biden is one although he has in roundabout ways suggested he understands who will be in the white house. Come january twenty first. that suggests talks aren't really as far along as some would hope as if this weren't tough enough the. Us government faces a do-or-die moment at the end of next week. The united states is set to run out of cash as the clock ticks past midnight on december eleventh and into december twelve that hard deadline ads and urgency to congress to do something. There is zero political appetite to shut down government in the middle of a pandemic heading into the end of year holiday season. Some lawmakers have talked about attaching corona virus. Relief package to the must pass spending bill in may be a way to get some forward movement but it also gives mcconnell added leverage to limit the size of the tacked on bill. Mcconnell controls the senate floor with an iron grip and ultimately has veto power over the entire agenda in the upper chamber if he says a limited pandemic relief measure is going on the omnibus. it's omnibus arrest for all practical purposes. So we're left with a string of calculations will progressives such a scaled back relief package until they can badger biden in the new year can conservatives stomach any of the red ink and if it does pass will trump sign perhaps the last significant piece of legislation of his one term presidency. The answer to each of those is at best a shruggy emoji without government funding forcing a vote. There's no guarantee mcconnell would bring another round of biden backed relief to the floor. In the new year conservatives will not be eager to give biden early win especially if it carries cash for struggling states and cities and trump seemingly has yet to accept. The movers are showing up at his door next month. It's the perfect cliffhanger for our president who spent so long as a reality show producer hence while the optimism coming off capitol hill. That a solution is in sight is perhaps misdirected.
Bill Gates looks back at ‘The Road Ahead’ after 25 years and some hit-and-miss tech predictions
"Is sometimes cop to the criticism that on this show. We tend to focus on the horse race between the big tech companies. Who's up who's down. Who like roadblocks might be a godzilla of the future and who like maybe intel seems to be sliding towards being an irrelevant dinosaur of the past. The way i like to think about it is that we're covering the evolution and creative destruction of capitalism in real time keeping score of who's the richest person in the world is probably less relevant to that task but only obliquely so for what it's worth. It's worth noting that elon. Musk has overtaken bill gates to become the world's second richest person behind. jeff bezos. Quoting the verge. The tesla ceo net worth now sits at around one hundred twenty eight billion dollars after increasing by one hundred billion dollars this year alone. There is a sizable gap between. Musk and the number one spot which is currently held by amazon ceo. Jeff bezos who has reported net worth of around one hundred and eighty two billion dollars in january. Musk ranked thirty fifth on the list. Bloomberg reports musk's rapid ascent up. The list has mainly been driven by tesla share price. The car company currently has a market cap of almost five hundred billion dollars after starting the year at under one hundred billion dollars. The guardian reports that tesla has the highest market cap of any car company in the world despite producing a fraction of the cars of more established automakers. This year it expects lose. Five hundred thousand cars compared to around ten million for a company like toyota around three quarters of musk's net worth consists of tesla shares according to bloomberg but musk's other major venture space x has also seen recent success last week the company transported for astronauts to the international space station aboard. It's crew dragon spacecraft that follows the company's first crewed flight to space in may of this year bill gates sat atop the billionaires index for years until he was overtaken by jeff bezos in two thousand seventeen bloomberg notes. That gates would probably have a higher net wealth right now if he hadn't given so much money to charity including the over twenty seven billion dollars. He's donated through the bill and melinda gates foundation since two thousand six gates. Moscow have had some high profile disagreements this year in september. Musk said gateshead quote no clue about the viability of electric trucks after the microsoft co-founder said that electric semi trucks along with electric cargo ships and passenger jets will probably never be practical earlier. This year gates told cnbc that musk should avoid making big predictions about areas. He's not familiar. After the tesla's ceo downplayed the risk of the covid nineteen pandemic. Musk overtook facebook. Ceo mark zuckerberg last week when he became the third richest person on. The billionaires index zuckerberg has since fallen to fifth in the rankings.

Using Big Data to Solve Economic and Social Problems
"Fake data tends to get a bad rap and it often deserves it from facebook's tools being used to abuse privacy to amazon knowing everything you buy two apps tracking all of your movements kids data minefield for consumers these days but in the hands of the right person big data can actually be a force for good or at least one hopes a force for good policy and raj. Chetty is trying to do just that. He's ahead of harvard based opportunity insights research institute. That's working solve america's inequality problem one data set at a time chetty has been tracking millions of people doesn't of years and tens of thousands of american neighborhoods in the process. He's learned that the country could be losing out on millions of inventors and that a move of just two miles might alter the trajectory of a third grader. But jetties research isn't just sitting in long excel. She's on dusty shells. It's helping drive. Bill gates spends his billions of dollars of philanthropy or how president elect joe biden crafts his pandemic economic recovery plant. But one thing he does best was all his piles of facts and figures is to make it easy for even the nandi to rock and there's an explosive term for that you do. Things apparently called chetty bombs. I'm not sure you love that name do like that. you mind. i guess. I guess they're unique insights where you can visually see something to do. Visualization of. What's happening. And i think some of the ones that i thought were much more effective was around covid. Which is where spending is happening or not happening so talk a little bit about what you're doing around cove it so in kobe. We're using data from a bunch of different private companies to track. What's happening to various key outcomes spending employment levels business activity and so forth in in a nutshell. What we basically find happened in the past six months is that high income folks started to spend a lot less like thirty percent less billions of dollars less per day primarily because of health concerns so lots of folks have the capacity to work remotely to self isolate and as a result they started to basically go outside their houses less and spent much less in person services. Local restaurants shops and so forth. Those businesses particularly small businesses then lost an enormous amount of revenue and in particular business located in affluent areas to think about for example the upper east side of manhattan or the highest income places in san francisco. They lost something like seventy or eighty percent of their revenues so just a massive impact in contrast in some of the less affluent places. Like if you think about the bronx or parts of queens you see more like twenty or thirty percent declines in revenue so much less than what you're seeing and appetizers and so then you got all these businesses that have lost a ton of money so what you can do with these data has asked. Okay how do they balance their books. Like what are you gonna do when you have much less money. Well naturally you see these businesses start to lay off lots of their workers and in particular. They lay off their low wage workers. If you look at some of these crops you can see very clearly this pattern where for low income workers people making less than say twenty or thirty thousand dollars a year. Somebody who works in a sandwich shop in downtown area of san francisco for example exactly seventy eighty percent of those workers have lost their jobs whereas that same worker if they weren't even at the same chain so you're working at a report layers something like that and you happen to be working at a branch that was in a less affluent area. You were much less likely to lose your job. Just because spending happened to fall less in those areas perhaps because essential workers are still out in about behalf to be outside their house because of the nature of their jobs were as time can folks can typically self isolate and so what's ended up happening is basically because of this production spending by the rich. It's lower income people who born the incidence of chuck and losing their jobs and finding now is we've had essentially a v shaped recovery for high income. Folks were their employment levels are back to where they were pre covid where it's lower income folks. You're still twenty percent below six million jobs below where you were where they've gone the brunt of the economic distress which i think anecdotally people get which is interesting one of the things that someone was talking about the statistics around the trump voters that wealthier people did vote for trump and mike while they're doing okay more than you think and their income is the same so they're not upset about this issue particularly jibe. That's right karen. I think what's more though as you can see. It's not trust lower income folks in general but in very particular areas right so in the past in previous recessions but you tend to see is that it's lower income folks in less affluent cities who took the hardest head turns out in this recession. It's actually flipped so silicon valley. For example has some of the highest rates for low income. People serfs there exactly because it's the opposite of what you might have thought because of the mechanism you just talked about. So this is one example of i think what you can see in these data but importantly as you touched upon you can basically have folksy this for themselves by just plotting the data in a very simple. I'm just finishing on covid with the cares act. Does the stimulus. Bill have an impact. Then you have this data now that you're showing this. They still haven't passed one. Maybe that's a good thing because they didn't get to see this data yet and they were just sort of shooting in the dark. Essentially isn't going to be a wakeup call or are they going to change their behaviors of where the money is going to be seeing the stated. How does that translate. Well i mean. That's the aspiration so what we're hoping going forward and i've been talking with a bunch of folks and the president elect and folks the biden team. I think there's a lot of interest both among those folks and on the other side of the isles who have been speaking with in trying to understand how we can do better invite of having these sorts of data. Because you know of course. They're always political debates about what we should focus on. But i don't think anyone is in favor of just spending lots of money and ineffective ways so talk a little bit about that concept of understanding effect understanding results in action take in the context of the current crisis the important paycheck protection program about five hundred billion dollars of loans to small businesses to try to keep people on zero again in the context of kobe to try to keep the economy going to stop businesses from laying people off so the way that program was designed. Lots of businesses were eligible in particular businesses with fewer than five hundred employees. And as you said you know there was kind of a hope that maybe giving these firms this money is going to keep lots of workers on the payroll and will make the recession. Not as bad. So what we did is using data from payroll companies which are cutting paychecks for millions of workers. We basically compare trends and employment for firms that had fewer than five hundred employees and hence were eligible for the paycheck protection program versus firms. That more than five hundred employees and ends were not eligible. So you can make an analogy there to sort of a science experiment. You've got a treatment group. The firms that have fewer than five hundred employees that got this extra assistance and the ones that up more than five hundred employees service kind of a control group. They tell you what would have happened if you didn't get this ski enough and so what you end up. Seeing the data is you can follow employment levels week by week and you can see very precisely that after april third that when when this program went into effect employment did start to go up a little bit at the smaller firms relative to the larger firms by about two percentage points. But the problem is it's only a two percentage point impact of fortune for every cost five hundred billion dollars so it it cost about three hundred thousand dollars per job that we saved as a result. Some of these are low wage. Jobs jobs that are paying about forty thousand dollars a year typically. So you know. You're spending an enormous amount of money to save these jobs now. I think people started to figure out over time that lots of firms might be taking up this program who weren't gonna lay off any workers anyway and as a result it wasn't super cost effective but we figured that out only several months afterward and so the kind of vision. We add some of this big data. Work that we're doing. And this is why i think it can be a moral force for social good as in agean. You could see as you're gonna steering the economy to three weeks later while this is kind of working but maybe we need to target it at firms that lost a lot of revenue or redesign it a bit so that it's more effective or in specific geographies like this area doesn't need any money. This area does exactly what specific sectors right. there are certain sectors particularly hard. You can take a really data driven approach and in private companies. This would be second nature right. I try to sell this product. I figure out within a couple of months people are clicking on this. They're not buying us. I'm going to then tweak it. In some way and i think we could do that from a social perspective for for policy with in my view much larger stakes.
McConnell rejects Dem demand for big Covid relief package, stands by push for 'highly targeted' bill
"Just heard from mitchell about the income. Cliff coming up at the end of the year right. Still though senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell said again today there is not going to be another big corona virus. Relief bill at a congress if it happens at all. It's going to be closer what he was talking about before the election. Something near five hundred billion dollars a skinny package if you will but with unemployment still high and the virus on the rise will that skinny. Bill helped the people who need it most. No it won't bang. Adler is a senior economist at the center for american progress. He writes about this kind of thing. Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me As you just heard. Senator mcconnell said once again day He does not see the need for a large relief. Package for this economy What do you think it is very surprising to hear that given where we are in terms of the pandemic but also given what happened earlier this year. If you think about what happened at margin april and cares act and how that help out the economy. We should want more of that. Given numbers you've said Repeatedly said it on twitter the other day and you've said in a piece online Within the past week or so our economic policies are basically geared toward white men. If white men are doing fine then we get the economic policy that white men need. That is correct because if you look at the numbers you look at what happened in april. When we had the peak of unemployment general employment was at fourteen point. Seven percent white men had an unemployment rate of twelve point four percent. That's when we saw the cares act. That's where we saw all the other things and p p and a lot of Spending to help out this economy. Since then the rate for white man has dropped down now to five point eight percent. And so you can. Look at these policymakers all while things are looking good but if you look at it for other groups so for example black men are at eleven point. Five percent so black men had a similar unemployment rate that whiteman had an april. And then you also even look at what's happening with women women last month. Eight hundred sixty five thousand dropped out of the labor force that they're not even counted in unemployment and the only got half that back. But if you look only at white men with five point eight percent on perpetrate then you can say oh we only skinny bill but white men are not the economy everybody's economy and we have to focus on that. Let me ask you one more thing and And i guess it it makes sense given the state of play right now but you wrote the other day As this pandemic has hit home. Lawmakers cannot be counted on to respond to the magnitude of this crisis or any future economic crisis that is fairly bleak that we can't count on on washington to fix this economy when it so desperately needed. But that's the truth. We lost a lot of unemployment. Pete that almost fifty percent and we put in three four trillion dollars into the economy. And the thing is it worked and instead of putting more money back in continuing these things like direct checks or expanded you. Why which people that you know said eight million people. Out of poverty policymakers that on the hands and let it expire and all the way through the election. It didn't happen shocking. Pretty much everybody so of course you know we can't. We can't expect politics because in a position where he would have done it when he's should've done it. We didn't see it so we can't trust him anymore.
Could you handle a surprise $250 expense right now?
"Everybody a lot of big numbers with which to begin the program today, and then a much much smaller number, and arguably it's the smaller one that is more of a problem. One is definitive about the political machinations surrounding the American economy right now, those negotiations over a relief bill one is definitive at one's peril but we seem to have arrived today at the proverbial line in the sand by way of Refresher Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats want to spend two point two, trillion dollars on relief bill the White House, the president of the United States Treasury Secretary Steven. MNUCHIN. They say they are good with one point eight trillion dollars. Senate Republican, Leader Mitch McConnell Today in Kentucky Though said this you're correct were discussions going on between the Speaker about an hour now. That's not what I'm. GonNa put on. McConnell. Is going to put on the floor. He said a five hundred billion dollar package that'll be next week sometime. So those are the big numbers. The smaller number is two, hundred, fifty dollars just to fifty no extra zeros and it's one of the key data points from the latest addition of the marketplace. At research poll, we're going to be digging into it for the next couple of days and today as well. But the upshot is that all is not well once you get past the economic headlines One of the questions we asked people was if you had an unexpected expense of two hundred and fifty dollars, two, hundred, fifty bucks, would you be able to pay it forty seven percent of people almost half of Americans said it would be somewhat or very difficult to come up with cash. Since. The pandemic it's Ben We haven't really had much expendable income. That's Ashley. Since she's twenty seven, she's a first grade teacher in Monterey California at the beginning of the pandemic my boyfriend was laid off from his cooking job and so now it's kind of just. My salary and then the little bit of benefits that he gets, which covers blake rent food. But only barely like there's there's not much else one reason why there's not much else those expanded unemployment benefits the extra six, hundred dollars a week we told you so much about they ran out almost three months ago. See also negotiations over those big numbers that we started with. When he had the federal benefits at least we had like a little bit of wiggle room where it was like okay. If something happened wouldn't be like the end of the world right then. But now that that's gone, that's also kind of not there. Anymore Ashley's ends one of the respondents to the tenth addition of the marketplace. Edison Research poll out as I think I've said, today we through some new questions in the bowl this time cuz pandemic and some of those questions were about kids and parents and working and schooling from home. Those are among the biggest challenges millions of people in this economy you're facing and as marketplace's Megan McCarthy Carino reports it is mostly women who are facing it. Normally Emily Smith supplements her job as an heirloom vegetable farmer in Ohio with a part time winter job. But this year she's got a lot going on at home her nine year old son is doing on again off again, remote school. It changes week by week according to infection rates in our county I have to be here. He's not really old enough for me to. Go anywhere one time while he was in class, she left to run a quick errand down the street I come Rahm, and it's like he's sitting in front of the TV with his computer Smith's husband works fulltime outside the home. So she's in charge of schooltime our marketplace. Edison. Research poll found a stark gender disparity in WHO's primarily responsible for supervising remote learning sixty three percent of mothers said they were compared with just twenty eight percent of fathers. These disparities have kind of already been there but they're really getting exaggerated by how the pandemic has kind of taken away a lot of the scaffolding that makes working families tick. Darby Saxby directs the Center for the changing family USC. She says before the pandemic women in heterosexual dual income households were already doing more household labor despite the fact that dads have tripled the amount of time. They. Spend taking care of kids over the last fifty years. Now with childcare hard to find an extracurriculars canceled its mothers who are mostly picking up the slack. You know women are generally socialized to kind of be more the managers of of their kids, development and education in our poll. Roughly equal shares of men and women did say they had made career sacrifices to care for family during the pandemic or had cut hours at work to deal with remote school like Fain Young in Philadelphia who's juggling his it job with studying his BA and helping his five kids at home to definitely taken away from anything else that I would have otherwise done. And that time otherwise would be consumed either with my career or my own education. Dan. Carlson at the University of Utah has found well, moms are more likely to be in charge of remote schooling. DADS have stepped up to take more equal share of routine housework and childcare during the pandemic Manhattan stepped up the way they did it would have been even worse so it was not enough to stem the tide. You know as like a finger in the dam, the latest jobs report from the federal government found more than eight hundred thousand women had dropped out of the labor force four times more than men.

A global movement to solve global problems
"For years I have been working on a simple idea for humanity to tickets. Next leap ahead, we need to work together across borders to so global issues. In, the modern world new water bora can protect us from crisis. We have no other choice but to unite. And we need to do it fast in two thousand, sixteen I was devastated by the UK's decision to leave the European Union. I'm French for me. The EU is more open and global. Society. But sudden, these be shuttered and I wasn't feeling this way. My partner Andrea who's Italian and Damian a German friend also called the shock of seeing the world turning inward. We realized that despite being from three different countries, we witnessed the same challenges migration fluids being dealt with an inhuman. Mana. Climate Change. Well, how you employment And we also had the same hopes and dreams in everyday lives. We also realized that to SUV European issues the outdated model of always national interests I had to go. So we decided to act for a few months we west on the idea of launching votes, the first pan-european political movements, and then naturally we told facebook friends. And a lot of them responded saying that were up the challenge and wanted to help. People started holding small community meetings in parks, universities, and pubs to discuss common future and shed their solutions to the continent's biggest problems. We mobilized tens of thousands of people across twenty eight European countries, two years in. Damian was elected to the European Parliament on the campaign run by volunteers across borders on the idea that we just from together. We should that by collaborating across borders by nineteen and acting as one, we could start changing how people think. With the first ones to attempt something of this scale and to succeed despite this after the European elections in May two thousand and nineteen on drown I looked into, which is an asked that frank question that you never want to ask. Once you have what two years would something that actually worked out is this enough? No it wasn't. We knew that today's urgent challenges and not just your but global. We also knew that we couldn't even attempt to solve them by only focusing on Europe. A continent that represents less than ten percents of the world's population John Lying issue is that the way we see the world and the way the world works who mentally wrong. In. The span of two generations to what has changed more than in the previous twenty thousand years we can lend on the moon. We can wake up and Shane Guy in Gutu better in New York, we have access to a huge amount of information all the time every way. But we still see the world as I meet Ceti but issues like covid nineteen, climate, change migration, fiscal justice, human rights mean that we need to think and united beyond national borders. A global approach is needed to solve them. Countries need to collaborate share resources, information and solutions. It's not just the right thing to do, but it's also the smart one. So in the weeks following dungeons election on brand I decided that we would create a global movement to unite people beyond borders and so those issues that concern us all. We, call it now because we're not very creative and because it needs to happen now. So I know that going beyond national borders is not the easiest thing too. So here's the framework that has been guiding our work. I could think unites and it forward I. We need to change the way we think about the world whether we like it or not already live in a globalised world we need to stop thinking within national frameworks and start thinking globally take, for example, how we think about taxation. Multinational companies like facebook or Amazon or radio operate across borders but they pay very little taxes in very few countries because we think of them within national frameworks and as a result, we lack a global tax system due to this country's are deprived of at least five, hundred, billion dollars annually. Five hundred billion dollars to put it in perspective half of amount of money we could put an end to global hunger for one year, but we don't. Because of the way, we think about the world. At now, we want to change this. We connect people from all across the world who discuss work together and understand that global is the new normal and that they have more in common than what separates them. We host wiki events in which we discussed topics such as lgbt rights, pandemics, fiscal justice, or mental health. We've breakdown. This book challenges to see how they impact people in various parts of the world and I met this have already shown a global thinking actively rallying governments to solve those issues like ensuring a fetish abuse of vaccines across the. World.

Hello to both of you hither. And Becky, let's put this first question to you. We know that climate change makes a year like this one more likely to occur. That's because hotter temperatures helped drive bigger more damaging wildfires and hurricanes. But what do we know about the economic toll that takes? Well, you know unfortunately, this isn't the first year that the US has had this kind of back to back situation with fires and storms, and that's kind of thing as you said, global warming helps fuel and the federal government and actually tracks the status. So we have some idea of how expensive. These things are and the cost is just huge. So in the last five years, the US has experienced more than five hundred billion with a B., dollars in losses directly from climate fueled weather disasters, and that's not including twenty twenty s disasters that will likely be in the tens of billions five, hundred, billion dollars in the last five years enormous amount of money nate outside Eugene Oregon near one of the major fires burning give us some sense of what those fires mean for the local economy there. Well, they've just been devastating businesses here in Eugene. Up. and down the state that it had to close just because of the smoke and a lot of these businesses were already just hanging on by a thread because of the pandemic then you've got the direct damages from the fires lost homes timber buildings lost infrastructure I talked to a telecom worker the other day at the incident command post with a firearm near, and he had just gotten back from being in the burnt area His name is Rob Robertson and he described the scene where like a ghost forest he said they lost something. Like sixty miles worth at telephone poles, it had been built and he says each of those poll costs about ten thousand dollars we're looking at you know multimillions worth of infrastructure to replace I. Mean it's just there's so much infrastructure out there that that's been destroyed now, and that's just in one valley from one fire in a state that's got fires in. You know basically from north to south and Robinson was frustrated because he said, he felt like there were things that we could do right now decrease risked infrastructure, but we haven't because it costs money. On that point when it comes to wildfires, for example, what can be done to decrease their long-term costs. So it's going to take a big change in the status quo right now, we spend billions of dollars just about every year fighting fires, you know trying to put him out and fire colleges, land managers even firefighters will tell you that money would be way better spent on the front end. Here's Sara ultimate pope, a former smoke jumper who now runs a force collaborative in southern Oregon we do have a lot of work that we need to do on our forest to get them back to. A more healthy state where they're going to be resilient in the face of climate change and resilient to disturbance, and to do that, we're going to have to invest in them. So she says, we're going to need more prescribed fire thinning more management of these places, and that is going to cost a lot of money. You know billions of dollars. So that's wildfires. Then there's hurricanes and Rebecca as we mentioned, you just got back from the Gulf Hurricane Sally is dumping rain on the Gulf Coast and Hurricane Laura destroyed towns along the Louisiana Texas border. Late last month gives sense about the hurricane cost. Well. You know hurricanes are consistently the most expensive disasters that we see especially hurricanes that caused a lot of flooding like sally and that's really bad news because that's exactly the kind of storm that's more common as the earth gets hotter this year has been really bad. There have already been ten climate driven disasters that cost more than a billion dollars each that was as of July. One thing to remember is that where people live really matters you know the number of homes in flood prone areas, it's skyrocketed in las three decades. So the seam disaster today is going to cause more damage hurt more homes than if it had happened previously. So zoning laws building codes, they are really important and climbing experts say that there are economic benefits to be had if we build in more resilient ways. Rebecca innate. We've been talking about the overall economic costs of climate fueled disasters, but let's go to a more personal level. How does this affect families and what do we know about how surviving a fire or flood affects people financially Well. The effects are really dramatic for a lot of people especially poor people if you don't have savings to fall back on or gave can't afford adequate insurance, a disaster can totally derail a family's finances for decades people whose home is their only source of wealth. For example, they're more likely to end up renting even years later, bankruptcy is more likely there. are other costs to like for example, research suggests that young people who survive a hurricane, they're less likely to enter college. It takes longer to graduate if they do go and survivors also have long term mental and physical health problems often, and that can interfere with work that obviously hits income or create new costs of their own. These are extreme weather disasters. We've been focusing on, but what about the financial hit from less dramatic or less immediately noticeable climate impacts like the gradual rise of temperatures. So yeah, I mean rising temperatures and heat waves hurt agriculture health certainly electrical bills. You know you have warmer waters affecting fisheries and then there's just the down the road impacts ecological decline you know are in extinction crisis. Right. Now that climate change is only going to make worse and we depend on ecosystems for everything from clean water and air or two places to go where we can just escape from it all and I don't really know how you put a price tag on something like that. That's NPR's climate team nate rot and Rebecca. Hersher. Thank you both of you. So. Much. To be here.
U.S. National Debt on Track to Surpass Size of Economy
"The US has spent trillions of dollars fighting the coronavirus pandemic. All of that spending is pushing the nation towards a new milestone next fiscal year the Congressional Budget Office. Says US government debt is expected to exceed the size of the economy for the first time since World War. Two K. Davidson covers economic policy for the Wall Street Journal Hi Kate thanks for joining me Hi emery. Thanks for having me. So put this in context for us the last time the national debt was this high was World War Two, very different times in our history but these periods actually have a lot in common when it comes to national debt. That's right. The debt has been rising this spring in part because policymakers have even said, they view this moment as as a battle as almost a war against US global pandemic, they've spent trillions to try to cushion the economy from the negative effects who has businesses have closed down. Millions of people are out of work. They've approved a ton of money to get people enhanced unemployment. Benefits stimulus checks, emergency loans, and then also, of course, things like vaccine research and aid for hospitals. So all of that is going towards fighting would they do as this threat that's on on par with what we experienced during wartime. So the vast majority of this spending was, as you say to combat the coronavirus, can you detail some of the largest expenditures under those efforts? So the the? Biggest factors were, yes. All these stimulus measures I would say in the big ones were the the stimulus checks that went out. Remember most Americans got a twelve hundred dollars per person checks and and five hundred dollars for dependent children that was several hundred billion dollars. Congress also devoted a ton of money to the paycheck protection program. Those are those emergency loans for small businesses. That was another huge component between two bills. It was over five, hundred, billion dollars I think about six, hundred, billion actually, and then the third one is enhanced unemployment benefits. Stra six hundred dollar weekly checks that people have been getting on top of regular unemployment benefits. Those of course expired at end of July so that spending is coming down a little bit but all of those were. Big, pieces of this overall efforts to help the economy right now. Now, Congress is still debating whether to provide additional stimulus relief. How does the nation's debt load now play into these discussions among lawmakers? Well, I think it's it seems to be an important. Although both sides will sort of point fingers over whether these concerns are genuine Republicans have cited rising debt certainly is a big concern. A reason to be cautious about borrowing more Democrats are saying you know we we need to borrow now to protect the economy and it's worth it to take on more debt. If you're making sure that you're protecting economic growth on because leaving millions of people out of work at they're losing their homes businesses or closing can have long term negative effects on the economy. So they're saying it's worth it right. Now, and some of them are also pointing out that you know Republicans approved a very large tax cut a couple years ago that has constrained revenues and definitely both sides have approved big spending increases in recent years. So there's plenty of blame to go around but I think right now most people in most economists are saying debt should not be the top concern. So some some Republicans have acknowledged even some in the administration are saying look we we can't afford this right now especially, because interest rates are so low and we should do more. Right, and you spoke to some economists who said that despite the big economic contraction in the second quarter, this could have been much worse without some of the fiscal support detailed. That's right and we can see that in the data there are some some groups that break this down they look at the contributions of federal spending to overall GDP and right there was a a big drop off in the second quarter but we saw that fiscal stimulus spending by the federal government actually contributed but had a very positive effect in in other words supported supported economic output and made sure that it wasn't even worse. So you know just because of the way that. GDP is calculated and that's that's fairly typical during a recession. We see governments come in and do it the question right now as well. How much more support is the economy really need and I, think some people are worried that there. We could see because of these debt concerns we could see a situation where what we saw after the last recession where some people argue Congress pulled back on this support to quickly they pulled back too soon and that just really slowed the recovery. So so some folks are saying look don't make that mistake this time around yes. Debt is very high but we we can afford it. There's still big demand for US

"Okay so I usually would have been fortune opted to fly in a private Mr millionaire dollar I don't call the tester millionaire Michael real in the morning we get the point there you go let's check in now with ABC news correspondent Erin get thirsty who is in Detroit for last night's debate and for tonight's debate good morning to you Erin Michael good morning real clash of of ideas in the Democratic Party moderates versus progressive says the the they Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren faction fought it out with some of the moderate lesser knowns like John Delaney and Tim Ryan and John Hickenlooper and Steve bullock who accused Warren and Sanders of pushing wishlist economics fairy tale economics possible plans and and there was a real split that that I think the makes the Republicans happy certainly but but also you know gave voters a sense that all right there there's some real of ideas here and some real differences but no clear consensus moving forward so where are you were you were there on the ground but my sense watching it last night was that the energy the energy in the room was behind the progressives Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders that's always been true I mean just think back to the last cycle of the energy was always with Bernie Sanders even though the Ellery Clinton ended up prevailing it really seems to be a heart verses head kind of debate as Democrats struggle to figure out who can best take on president trump and Elizabeth Warren said look why do you bother to run for president if you can't think about big bold ideas and and you're willing to defend the aren here's the line I thought this is a great line from our I don't understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can't do and shouldn't fight for us does pretty good line it was I think the line of the night for sure from Elizabeth Warren and and I think of a real sense of of how she views the the the best way to take on president trump she believes that you know the system is broken he's a symptom of that and and you know you got a kind of burn it all down and and start over with it a whole different set of of big ideas where is the the more moderate crowds sees you know trump is just a problem and and that you don't have to start from scratch and and take away people's private health insurance and and you know go for a big you know government run of health care for all type plan instead you know do some things that that are a little more concrete but also won't risk alienating voters in the general election and I think that divide on strategy was evident in that of and in the first night of the debate we're on with our in see ABC news covering the base in Detroit okay you're a bright guy and I want you to translate this for me the we're having here tonight if you think it is walking this is going to deal with this dark side could force okay one Guinness and dark side could force go the most the Google moment I think of the of of the debate what what what exactly was she talking about I I very good point to to understand the dark psyche for although Marian Williams and I have to say I think did deliver of much later in the debate went when the conversation shifted toward race it with it's an all white stage of what it'll be different tonight but it all white stage in Merion Williamson made the the the a clear concise and and rather powerful argument for paying reparations to descendants of slaves you propose two hundred to five hundred billion dollars she was unabashed about it she said it would you know correct what you know she called this lingering injustice in American life that that has never been fully reconciled and I think made clear that even though she is not a traditional politician she may be in this race longer than anyone expected Hey so Erin when does the Colleen from the field last night again I mean I think that Beto o'rourke stays have got to be numbered except he has a bunch of money from his you know initial has initial splash not you know maybe enough but probably enough to stick around for awhile longer but it was interesting that the the that middle tier of democratic candidates judge bed o'rourke the AV club ashore while each of them had a moment or two none really catapulted themselves it felt like the arm and and left the bulk of the debating to the the the Warren and Sanders crowd and and and then these kind of moderates on the fridge that were just fighting to stay in the race but probably making a last stand all right so who won this thing last night in your estimation Joe Biden because he wasn't mentioned once and he's the front runner and and that'll certainly be different tonight when he's on stage flanked by camel harassing Cory Booker who have publicly challenged him on issues of race I think Donald Trump is a is a winner yeah because he has to love that that they did it the Democrats are are taking up part of their own policies you know but as the moderates in the progressives fight it out but if you're talking about those on stage look Elizabeth Warren I think fought hard and coherently and cogent way for for ideas that she believes in she did have that line of the night that you played line and and I think more articulately than that Bernie Sanders was able to defend some of the progressive ideas although Sanders still showed how he can command the stage well I just think there seem to be playing into what trumps playbook if he cast this election between as a battle between socialism and capitalism that's where the Democrats seem to be headed to me on and compete put a judge said Michael but the the with the Democrats have to stop kind of worrying what Republicans are gonna call him because he he said you know if we embrace of Medicare for all the calls a bunch of crazy socialist if they embrace they fully embrace a conservative agenda they call him a bunch of crazy socialists of the the the Democrats know they can't win the rhetoric that's it all right ABC news correspondent Erin could Turkey will probably checking the MRO accidentally tonight yeah look for two okay thanks take it easy so when we get back now a playboy model she got into our Lamborghini S. and and she wound up well let's just say she

presidency if and only if we beat Donald Trump Tim Ryan all of the plans are going to be looking at this debate example who captured the left lane and who captured the center lane and who's the captured the moderate lane I hope tonight at some level I captured your imagination your imagination about what this country could be like if we United if we put together real policies that work left to right but new and better I'm I'm trying I'm I'm trying to be diplomatic her here's any club which are I think you have to leave open the possibility of meeting with anyone at any place what I don't like is how this president is handled it you've heard of the Truman doctrine the Monroe doctrine he's done the go it alone doctrine with the rest of the world John Hickenlooper I've done the things that most deserve you were just talking about and I know I can get results and I can lead the people of this country toward a stronger healthier and more secure future and defeat Donald Trump and return this country to its glory let me see that I that I played John Delaney I don't believe I did right here's your let let me let me play John going here Democrats win when we run on real solutions not impossible promises when we run on things that are workable not fairy tale economics look at the story of Detroit this amazing city that were in this city is turning around because the government and the private sector or working well together that has to be our model going forward and finally better work there are huge mistake they constitute the largest tax increase on the American consumer hitting the middle class and the working poor especially hard and farmers in Iowa and across the country are bearing the brunt of the consequences and just think everybody listening out there you're never going to get that last three minutes back then battle Rourke's never gonna get the money he spent on running for president back yeah well I'm you and I together listen to like the first forty five minutes that almost all was on healthcare yeah we listen that together writer in our in our pre show meeting so that really you know in immigration you know if you want to bring the the the if you want it this one of those days were I'm ready to go on the air and I have a million thoughts and it's trying to get it it's trying to you know put out one thought at the time you and I were both the there when a list with warm was specifically asked the question about you know what the cure would be for the chaos on the border and she said decriminalization and so you have the the candidate who is probably closest to eight you know not being Bernie or not bean I have NO Biden who is seems to be adored by the left gets the biggest cheers I viewed as one of the winners last night if you'd heard biting by the way is the winners because they really they really weren't challenged and when they were and made their liberal statements they were cheered wildly for yeah chrysalis over CNN dot com actually listed Donald Trump is one of the winners did he really an extended conversation about eliminating all private insurance a top tier candidate born fully embracing decriminalization yep of immigration of illegal I'm sorry wait a minute solicit used the words illegal immigration what to be clear at CNN dot com but he's got to be fired fire him we need to call CNN and see if he's still there he knows your man is illegal yeah right exactly right in that to chant yeah okay and and so that is again plays to the president's space is the point that solicitors making here and again not a conservative by any stretch former Washington post now it's in an and you then look at the one of the the first loser that he lists on on on on this page is best so Rourke but you really didn't have to go very far you did need chrysalis or anybody else the tell you Betul Rourke it's pretty much over I don't know where did you recover from this you know the Williamson thing has been going around and that was that was pretty much the the social media vote for who won because I think it really came down to the fact that people learn who Williamson wise well she didn't win no she didn't win the debate I I don't Bernie didn't win the debate everybody was saying about you know his little his little snaps you know with your wrong one what I wrote the damn bill it down you can you can shower but it doesn't make you a winner when when I say that Bernie and Warren were the big winners I'm talking about what could have happened what that did not Bernie actually said I'm as big a union guys you can possibly get be when talking about taking away healthcare from union members and nobody challenged him and said how dare you talk about unions with what's going on in your campaign right now nobody took that shot nobody took the shot to try to take down Sanders that's why I say again Bernie is always going to be Bernie so there's no surprises there but because there was an opportunity to take him down and nobody nobody was up to doing it he won and I believe that that warning also remember this the this is one of the toughest things that any of us are ever going to do we have to put ourselves and and this is the by the way this is why anything we say can be completely and totally flawed we have to put ourselves in the mind of a Democrat the whole world a little Democrat which is right there as as Eric said a long time ago if the premise is wrong but he ever sells everything that follows in the mind of a Democrat and everything else bass sound right but could be completely and totally rock yeah well you know and then if you look at governor balik and good trying to really really trying hard to play the moderate and trying to beat the Claire McCaskill on the stage and not one of those crazy Democrats that is I I think the only place that you could get from from book that was that was going to be the only play and why is that because he's not going to get the nomination he's not going to last till the next debate which means he's got to go back to his home state then he has to have in Montana a viable career going forward so it was not just about the hail Mary of trying to appear as the moderate like a Joe Biden might be doing but it is also trying to do that re introduction that handshake if you will with his home state and a state that is you know you clearly kinda goes down the line I think the I think the winner here is MSNBC seeing him in such a weird actually wasn't weird display it it just seemed it's the nature of the debate it really has nothing to do with CNN that has nothing to do with any channel this going to air any of these debates it's a weird nature of the debates and that is the fault of the party itself balik just sounded like a guy who was delusional compared to the people who are actually delusional on that stage you're not during the primary you're not going to get anywhere by trying to become the moderate well you know Delaney was doing the same thing you're right I was reading the article in National Review that was Jim Charites Ptolemy's talked about you know Delaney invalid can Hickenlooper and Tim Ryan there were really trying to push by the way I think that they were the ones who paid attention to what Ron Emmanuel wrote a in in the memo dated right right right right which said look you these these positions are so radical there even too radical for eighty eighty eight a debate stage in a you know in in in a primary way over in Texas who wrote about that a couple weeks ago it's impossible to move back to the the the the center honest right so I think you know that you know that they took that to heart but I think what you saw was the last gasp what we saw last night in maybe tonight also if you have any of the other candidates and temp to become moderate again because right look we did to you when I when when I when I heard the Laney and and I heard Tim Ryan and and they were pounding on the fact that you're going to be taking a wait excellent health care from union members that that earned it and worked for and negotiated of for it and they're losing their jobs and the one thing that they have is some of the best health care in the world and you're trying to take it away from them and the crowd was silent and what happens Warren comes back and says those are Republican talking points think about that defending the union health care that has been negotiated and and as Democrats will tell you fall for that used to be the core of the Democratic Party warning comes out and says those are Republican talking points and we're not taking anything away from anybody which of course they are you know she would and so she lies and then said that the Republican talking point and she gets scared like crazy yeah right and at that point I'm thinking to myself well there you go this is really the last what you're seeing is the last gasp of any attempt to be moderate and it came out last night I think because of the warning that this is the last chance but as Jim Garrity of of national you pointed out you've got you know those those for candidates that have a combined five per second and so it it really it really doesn't matter I think it is and I still believe that that somebody should have done this and somebody should have went when Bernie Sanders open himself up and said nobody's a union person like I am my gosh you had you are it's almost as if that point when nobody responded said what are you talking about the nobody attempted to take him down you've got nothing to lose yeah unless they're thinking we can't attack Bernie Sanders no matter what because it could it could hurt our political future I had no chance of being president and if I use that it's not going to work and I still wish to be a part of the Democrat party and be part of the gravy train of politics of of of of a you know being a Democrat because if I truly wanted to win and I'm a Democrat again I'm talking going into this bizarre world of the promises ridiculous but if I was I would've attack birdie at that point I would have attacked him in the in the opening remarks on the fact that he's it because that's what you do you're not going to win by being a moderate no right only way I think that if you're one of those candidates that is down there with the one two or three percent is to go after it and you tried to peel off the obvious hypocrites of socialism and you look at Bernie Sanders and all you gotta do is say Bernie talking about being a union man and defending union union workers he would take healthcare away because he doesn't care look what he's doing in his own campaign to the unions there would be a gas that would be the thing that would be talked about yeah and you'd say he doesn't he doesn't care about that they got a federal labor relations board thing he's got three homes you know it a bit himself he's written the gravy train of Washington you make those points as a Democrat and nobody dares to do it that's why I say Bernie one because there was a huge opportunity to take him down to put him before the entire Democrat world and say he's a hypocrite and the reason it's so easy for us to think that way is because we've done it and conservatives have done it and Republicans have done it so many times but it's the obvious response if you wish to take him down and six days after the fiasco that was the Mauler hearings nothing Muller was not mentioned once and neither were the Russians except for regarding the nuclear agreement that's telling it is now that that child to you right now they're too because if if last week had any impact what so I mean anything where they could take it from the ashes and trying to rebuild it as an impact you would have heard it nothing nothing at all more wasn't mentioned in the Russians were only mention in fact it was one time about the nuclear agreement and that was it Mahler zero point zero

I mean, if you're a Republican, the news media, would crucify you over things like this. But when you're a democrat, you say, well, he's involved, he's evolved, like Brock Obama.

It was in autom- wa Iowa autom-, what who what television characters from autumn, wa Iowa, anyone anyone, nobody knows they don't know, well, radar O'Reilly in mesh, which really in retrospect is a terrible show and wasn't really very funny at all lunch bucket, Joe his big speech.

This is really dangerous stuff. Yeah, your rhetoric. It's not easy. He's a threat in my view. A threat to our core values value, folks. The fact of the matter is that for years of Donald Trump will be viewed as an aberration in American history. Eight years, eight years fundamentally change, who we are a nation and Howard, you'd around the world. I think didn't Barack Obama premise, the fundamental transformation of America. Is that what he promised in the image of like Joseph Stalin or hokey manner, something like that? But the fundamental transformation of America what was promised.

Now, I am very proud to introduce Representative Frankel one of the co chairs of our Democratic Women's working group. She puts working families and working women at the heart of everything she does congresswoman Frankel.
