"Hello i'm steve forbes. And this is what's ahead. Where you get the insights you need to better navigate. These turbulent times one reason for the sour mood of people. These days is the counterproductive behavior of our political and public health officials when it comes to the pandemic announcements are confusing contradictory and too often of an unjustified sweeping nature instead of being nuanced healthcare bureaucracies stubbornly remained attached to their bureaucratic protocols instead of responding with alacrity and common sense to the needs of the moment and washington is now playing a nasty game politics against certain republican states here four examples of these deadly. Tendencies i start with president. Biden's diktat regarding vaccines. The decree was issued in the spirit of anger and finger-wagging persuasive messaging instead of public shaming would have been more productive. A more focused approach would also have helped for example for historic reasons. Many in the african american community have a deep suspicion of vaccinations. A calm patient and sustained campaign in the beginning might have achieved greater success than the blunderbuss tactics employed. The president also ignored the fact that people who had the disease had acquired immunity that is likely to be far more effective than vaccines. Why should they be forced to take the jab. The most vulnerable part of the population for death remains people above the age of sixty five and the vaccination rate there is over ninety percent moreover a study from the national institutes of health conclude that in twenty twenty probably one hundred million americans were infected. Not the twenty million reported such with the lack of symptoms or their mildness that eighty million people didn't know they have the disease that was in twenty twenty today. The number of infected people is probably around one hundred and fifty million the second example of government blundering is the brouhaha over a booster shot the bureaucratic mindset of the fda was on display when an advisory panel came out against people under sixty five getting this jab unless they are high risk real life evidence from israel and elsewhere demonstrates that the efficacy of the shots goes down over time for every age group so why not let people and their doctors decide for themselves whether to get the booster here the biden administrations more inclusive approach was the correct one. Third real world. Experience has shown the monoclonal antibodies like. Regeneration are extraordinarily effective in treating the disease yet deadly arbitrary restrictions are still in place and fourth. The biden administration has just decided to play lethal form of politics by cutting back supplies of monoclonal antibody treatments to red states. Like florida texas. Where the most needed. The unstated reason undercut republican governors really ugly stuff. I'm steve forbes is what's ahead thanks for listening. Do send in your comments and suggestions.

The sec's move sketchy and quote intimidation tactics. Behind closed doors and to quote the technical issues what qualifies as a security. The broader issue is whether governments and central banks can smother crypto movement with rules and decrees that severely restrict their uses regulators fear. The cryptos can become alternatives to the traditional banking and financial system and worse in their minds provide viable substitutes for government currencies coined based proposed a program called coin base lend that would permit its customers to earn interest by lending their holdings of a stable coin called usd c. to coin base which then lend the crypto to other institutions. Usd is crypto tied to the dollar at a one to one ratio. The virtue of a stable coin crypto is that it avoids. The manic volatility of traditional cryptos like bitcoin which makes their uses the money that can easily be used for everyday commercial transactions and for long term contracts. Highly problematic if not impossible. What coin based proposes is waving red cape to those who want no challenges to the status quo. Yes the claims that offering interest makes what coined base wants to offer a security and the springs. It under the agency's purview. What worries the. Sec is that other outfits are already offering such lending programs and wants to block this growth before reaches a critical mass. It wants a precedent to stop it or at least drastically. Slow it down the sec. Here is out for blood. The conflict between governments and the crypto world will take many turns regulators and congress are just waiting for a huge market correction to move far more aggressively to rein in crypto currencies. And of course this new world has its share a bad actors and scamsters ultimately however governments at least in democratic countries will have to make peace other governments.

Accompany that provides critical. It software to numerous large companies and government agencies president biden promised full retaliatory measures with future attacks unfortunately russia china iran and north korea are not impressed. A cyber attacks continue. Obviously there are a number of defensive measures that must be taken at both the private and government levels starting with more information sharing but one thing we must do rather than just talk about. It is to go on offense. We must do more to respond to these attacks. Washington should undertake offensive and preemptive cyber attacks. We have the capabilities to do. So such moves would remind these rogues that their activities are not cost-free. A handful of such costly attacks would put our enemies in a frame of mind to adapt an actually adhere to agreements to cease such activities. Russia for instance is heavily dependent on the revenues. It gets from its large. Oil and gas operations. Any kind of disruption of its pipelines would get instant tension in the kremlin. These bad actors would how let them but they would soon realize that a betting cyber attacks is now a no win game for them. Diplomacy would then bear real fruit. The biden administration doesn't get fully grasp that diplomacy not backed up with credible strength is ultimately futile. Congress could do its part by immediately passing the cyber diplomacy act which among other steps would established in the state department bureau of international cyberspace policy to push cybersecurity internet access and freedom and stopping international cyber threats. Our allies in french would gladly cooperate with a credible approach.

"There's a law enacted more than one hundred years ago that is costing our economy over one hundred billion dollars a year in los growth and making gasoline unnecessarily expensive. It's time to sink it. hello. I'm steve forbes. And this is what's ahead. We get the insights you need to better navigate. This turbulent world back in nineteen twenty congress passed the protectionist jones act which stipulated that any cargo transported between two american. Ports must be carried in ships. That are american building owned and crewed by americans trouble is. Us made big ships. These days costs more than four times. The vessels made by foreign competitors. The result of the jones act is significantly higher costs for consumers and businesses. The law has distorted shipping patterns all across north america. It particularly hurts. Hawaii alaska puerto rico guam which are more dependent on waterborne products than the continental us the most pronounced perversions. The act aren't energy. For example it would be logical for puerto rico to get liquefied natural gas ellen g from georgia or louisiana but since there are no. Us made ellen g tankers. The island imports gas from russia and other foreign sources the same phenomenon. I'm gonna distortion holds true for the. Us mainland it is cheaper for new england to get natural guests from trinidad and tobago or even siberia than from our gulf coast. We have the absurdity of refineries on the east and west coast finding it less expensive to import oil from abroad rather than from other parts of the us. California can get gas more easily. From singapore than from the gulf coast. Refined petroleum products from gulf coast. Refiners are also sold a latin america rather than here in the us because of joan zach perversions. But the jones ex distortions go beyond energy wonder. why so. Many retail products in alaska and hawaii could be so much more costly than on the american mainland huge factor. Is the jones act deep. Six in the jones act would lower the cost of shipping cargo by watering the us by fifty percent a study from the oecd declared that. Torpedoing this low at one hundred and thirty five billion dollars to america's economic output. An old cousin to the jones act is the passenger vessel services act of eighteen eighty six which similarly stipulates that only american made own staff ships could take passengers from one american port to another. That's why if you go on a cruise to alaska from san francisco the vessel. I make a stop at vancouver before going on to alaska a direct san francisco alaska route is illegal the. Us hasn't made a large cruise vessel. Since nineteen fifty-eight both laws deserve to be sent to the bottom of the sea. I'm steve forbes. Thanks for listening.

Over uncle sam's finances the federal debt ceiling needs to be raised otherwise our government can't sell bonds to raise the money for its expenses including interest on the national debt payments for social security medicare and medicaid as we all know washington spending far more than is taking in from revenue back in twenty nineteen. The limit on the national debt was suspended for two years that suspension expired on july. Thirty first this year and congress hasn't renewed the suspension since then the government has been running on the cash it has already on hand at the federal reserve revenues coming in from normal stream such as taxes and employing various gimmicks including not making payments to various retirement funds. But at some point the treasury department will run out expedience and the government's checking account will find itself on empty. Democrats have made it clear that they intend to pass. President biden's monumental budget plan without any republican votes. The extensible price tag is three point five trillion dollars. But the real cost when you strip out. All the accounting gimmicks is at least six trillion dollars legislation would make controlling future spending extremely difficult and the company tax increases will do do immense harm to the economy so in response the republicans have told the democrats. You wanna pass this damaging bill with its blow at expenditures that you raise the debt ceiling limit on your own. That is without any gop support democrat. Congressional leaders are howling. They know voters are increasingly leery of washington's unrestrained spending and that's why having to raise the debt ceiling with no republican cover is making some democrats hesitant in other words getting the necessary republican votes to resolve the debt limit. Crisis could help either. Scuttle the democrats grandiose ambitions or sharply curtail them which in turn would infuriate bernie sanders alexandria. Cossio cortez and other members of the party's influential far left in that event or casio. Cortez may finally decide to primary senate leader chuck schumer next year given the way raising or the debt limit has been played out in the past probably means the issue won't be dealt with until the government is about to default on its debt the repercussions of a default especially. If it wasn't immediately cured would royal seriously the markets. The us came close to doing that during the debt limit.

This is true a successful man cape books like this three quarters of my beautiful house. My wife has to approve. Of which means that. I will not like it.

They can't help themselves. Democrats in the senate and house our scarring about looking for money to finance their spending extravaganzas one idea is to tax retirement accounts. Democrats believe have grown too large reportedly their guests that some thirty thousand people have. Ira's worth more than five million dollars. So democrats are mulling ways to get their paws on that money perhaps with what would be outright confiscation of assets above a certain level or a certain percentage that must be paid out to beneficiaries as taxable income. And don't be loved that these rates would affect only the super rich several years ago president obama and several administration officials mused. That people didn't really need more than two million dollars or so on their accounts to fund a perfectly adequate retirement with inflation. That number won't be out of reach for tens of millions of people a decade or so hence another coming target could be roth. Ira's people fund these accounts with after tax income on the basis that future payouts would be exempt from income tax. That's the law traditionally raise of course the opposite contributions. these are tax deductible but payouts are taxable no surprise greedy washington politicians and their tax loving staffs and looking at ways to get their mitts on roth. Ira's by brazenly changing the law to tax or portion of these payouts or they might cap the size. These accounts are allowed to reach anything over that ceiling would be seized such looting of ira's or even allegedly bloated 401k's would be a forerunner of a wealth tax.

These turbulent times it hasn't had much publicity but the federal reserve has been using a seemingly esoteric device. Big time a gimmick really to try to prevent a future outburst of inflation far worse than what we've been experiencing investors had better hope for two big things one that the fed is thought through what it is doing and it's not simply grasping at a short term expedient defend off an inflationary disaster and to the congress does not pass president biden's humongous spending bills that in reality exceed a mind numbing incomprehensible six trillion dollars the device referring to is called a reverse repurchase agreement or reverse repo for short. It simply means that the fed ineffective borrows money from financial institutions for a very short period of time and use us government securities that is treasuries as collateral. Technically the fed sells the security agrees to bide back at a slightly higher price later. The difference between the higher price and the original price constitutes the interest payment now a few months ago the feds holding of these instruments was zero. Now they're around a trillion dollars. What gives why would the fed be barring so much short term money the main reason to soak up the mammoth amounts of money. That has been creating money. That if not neutralized could fuel a forest fire future inflation the rising prices were now experiencing have two causes one of course is the enormous supply chain disruptions from the pandemic the second is the excess money printing the fed engaged in twenty one thousand nine hundred twenty twenty which was reflected by fifty percent increase in the price of gold and unwelcome rising interest rates now. The fed is trying to curb its ongoing money. Printing thereby avoiding a big burst of inflation and twenty twenty two an election year for congress not raise interest rates hence these reverse repos in essence the fed manufacturers the money by buying bonds and paying for them by creating money out of thin air then pulls the money back by borrowing. It's short term. It's like pouring a bucket of water and went under the poll that removing a bucket of order at the other end. Investors need to know. How long can this game go on. That's where those proposed spending bills come in. If passed the deficit already huge will explode and the federal have to buy cartloads of bonds to finance it which means a flood of new money and eventually a new worse round of inflation if thwarted and the crisis for now will be far less acute. Let's hope congress. Does this one right. I'm steve forbes. Thanks for listening to send your comments and suggestions. And i look forward to being with you soon.

"forbes" Discussed on Steve Forbes: What's Ahead
"When it comes to some regulations president biden should take a cold shower. Hello i'm steve forbes. And this is what's ahead. We get the information you need to better navigate. These turbulent times so many government regulations are insulting intrusive and unnecessary. Here's a recent example. The biden administration is reimposing obnoxious. Regulation concerning showerheads yes showerheads years ago government nannies decreed that the flow of water from a shower had should be week making it a crime for manufacturers so you devices to experience if you wish an invigorating stream of water hitting you in the shower in the waning days of the trump administration they substantially ease this wet rule but the biden crowd is restoring the old regulation the rationale or running out of water. That's nonsense of course. California for instance routinely flushes almost half of its annual rainfall into the pacific ocean only ten percent of its rainfall goes residential and commercial use most hotels and developed and indeed many developing countries have showerheads with realistic flows of water. This piece of bird braid. Buffoonery is not an isolated example of making life unnecessarily knowing an unpleasant regulations forced. Today's dishwashers to be more costly and less efficient than their forebears extensively to save energy perversely. They do the opposite as you end up using more electricity before to get the job done the same idiot. Rules at work with washing. Machines did or refrigerators. The size of the tank. Fear toilets restricted half the size. It should be no need to go here into the crappy results of that and talking about expensive destruction. Unenlightened government diktats. Take the case of light bulbs years ago no it. All regulators concluded that the age-old incandescent bulb is a menace to the planet because of its carbon dioxide emissions and so governments banned. The bulb created by thomas. Edison and decreed that henceforth. We must use compact fluorescent bulbs. Instead manufacturing thomas edison's creation became a crime. Trouble was these new. Things were expensive than what they're replacing took too long to warm up or highly hazardous to dispose of. It did not last as long as we were. Promised consumers aided them. If these dimple bureaucrats had just let free markets work their magic immense amounts of money would have been saved and we'd been spared a lot of life shortening aggravation what these lesser lights ignored was. The development of light emitting diodes are. Led's as happens in free markets. They're evolving from expensive specialized lights into mass market. Incredibly energy-efficient things we happily us today no coercion necessary. It's high time that these rude uncalled-for rules ba- flushed away forever. I'm steve forbes. Thanks for listening.

Trump bought the hotel for $390 million but ended up selling it a few years later at a loss but listen to how Tom Barrack described that transaction at the Republican National Convention in 2016, he says it was Trump who got the better of the deal. Barrack said Trump told him You just tell me the things that I should know? And how to fix it, and I'll do this deal. He played me like a Steinway piano. Mm. So the two men became friends. Baruch became one of the few major business leaders to endorse Trump early in 2016, and that's the point in time where this indictment picks up, Okay. And so what do prosecutors say?

"forbes" Discussed on Steve Forbes: What's Ahead
"Forbes. And this is what's ahead. We get the insights you need to better navigate. These turbulent times auto sales are booming here in europe and elsewhere shortages abound. Thanks not only the greater demand but also to insufficient supplies of semiconductor chips buyers or even paying above sticker prices instead of the ones customary bargaining used cars prices been rubbing up there as well what gives the pandemic has given a lot of people in new appreciation for the mobility the auto provides instead of relying on uber taxes public transportation or catching lifts from friends another factor the mismanagement of many major american cities driving to the suburbs or otas are more of a necessity. A number of zuma's in even millennials. Who never bothered to get. A driver's license are now doing so. Of course the shortages will abate supply increases and the oh romance surrounding cars will not return thanks to fuel. Efficiency mandates automakers now feel constrained and how to design cars which is why most models look like jelly beans and are hard to tell apart but the casual indifference of recent times is gone the growing use of cars and trucks or also underscore something that a lot of manufacturers politicians and observers won't wanna hear most people are going to stick with vehicles using the internal combustion engine the basic reason it takes a few minutes to fill them up with gas or diesel fuel. It takes hours to recharge electric vehicle. That's why governments here and abroad resorting to big subsidies and outright mandates to get more people inside vs president biden wants to spend billions here for recharging stations in the like washington never had to subsidize the building of gas stations. Another obstacle to. Evt's is the current state of technology regarding the generation of electricity. He vs replacing legacy vehicles would require construction of numerous new electric plants. That would need fossil fuels. Alternatives to fossil fuels are incapable of meeting all such future needs without immense environmental damage from mining the necessary minerals for wind farms and solar panels. But while the current state of technology means use of fossil fuels will grow specially in countries like indian china. There surely quite a few individuals we've never heard of working and experimenting on creating or mobilizing other sources of energy such as molten salt nuclear power or thermal heat or something. the rest of us can't conceive of.

A Meditation to Help you Embrace Your Confidence
"As you get ready to settle yourself down. Now i want to share with you some ways you might notice. You're becoming more confident. So i did a little research. And i found an article on forbes dot com written by travis bradberry. It's titled twelve things. Truly confident people do differently and the very first thing that was mentioned is confident people get their happiness from within people who are confident derive a sense of pleasure and satisfaction from their own accomplishments as opposed to what other people think of their accomplishments. They know that no matter what anyone says. You're never as good or bad as people see. You are another thing they do is they. Don't pass judgement confident. People don't pass judgement on others because they know that everyone has something to offer and they don't need to compare other people to themselves or take other people down a notch and feel good about themselves. Comparing yourself to other people is limiting. So don't waste your time sizing people up and worrying about whether or not you measure up to what they think of you.

Murders and Disappearances: Can Psychics Solve the Crimes?
"Now like i said i don't think it's outside the realm of possibility that a person can have psychic abilities. I do think that sylvia brown did not have psychic abilities. But i wanted to present you with some cases where psychics got it right. it turns out. Those cases are very hard to find. Even if you pop over to reader's digest dot com which i don't recommend and read articles with headlines like twenty times psychics. Got it right once. You barely scratched the surface on those cases. You find out. It's a little more complicated. It's super hard to get good. Statistics on police use psychics and investigations. Police don't really like to talk about how much they rely on psychics and in some cases get older. The information on them changes drastically if you read five articles about a case from fifty years ago. Each written in subsequent decade. You'll find the reporting goes from police. Credit so-and-so psychic for pointing them in the right direction to initially police admitted to using a psychic helped but later retracted the statement to eventually police adamantly deny using psychic and the case and claim that any information a psychic may have given was patently wrong. So it's a little hard to keep track of but according to an article in forbes. The cia conducted a study and found that eight out of eleven police officers. Polled said. they used psychics to help them solve crimes. Eight out of eleven. Oddly enough. I couldn't gain access to the cia report even though it was supposed to be declassified the link was broken i think someone high up read the report and was like fuck. Now burn that shit but eight out of eleven is a lot. I don't even think eight out of eleven people believe in psychics. Generally eight out of eleven even if those numbers are inflated and it's more like five out of eleven. Don't you think there must be something we don't know and look there could be many reasons caught. Might turn to a psychic desperation. Laziness appeasing distraught loved ones and even if afterward they try to back pedal and make it. Look like the psychic wasn't helpful. It does make you wonder why. So many police officers who aren't generally known for their hippy. Dippy reported using psychics to help them solve cases.

"Hello I'm Steve Forbes and this is what's ahead. We give you the insights you need for this ever changing turbulent world well, baseball, fans and sports fans are wondering. Are we going to get baseball this year? Well, hockey got its act together in the post. Covert World Basketball got its act together. Both of those leagues are resuming play. Yes, truncated season empty arenas, but the games will go on, but baseball. The granddaddy of the mall play was supposed to resume dry fourth ain't gonNA happen why because players and owners are locked in a bitter dispute. They're debating. How many games should there be? How should salaries be determined in this? This, truncated season, after all stadiums are GONNA be empty, a huge source of revenue in a traditional season. Well I think fans have a message for both sides. Get Your Act together. Everyone knows this is a terrible time. Compromises have to be made player should realize with people unemployed. There's not much sympathy. Oh my salary, Mike, go down a COUPLA million dollars. boohoo owners are not blameless, either. They've been practicing some of them. Bad things in recent years like tanking deliberately tanking their teams making them play badly for several years. They've also been playing. Thanks to Arcane Rules Games with calling up players from the minor leagues to lay it. It, a couple of weeks at hurts their future earnings. All of these things are legitimate issues, but now is the time for compromise. People want at least for two or three hours a day to be able to leave this troubled world, and going to the world of sports and Baseball and root for their favorite team. Unfortunately Major League Baseball has had a terrible history of labor relations twenty five years ago. They wiped out an entire season because they couldn't come to an agreement now. They have a major negotiation coming up next year. This sank going to help this dispute now, so put aside their big disputes. This is not just. Just about baseball. This is about the country. Baseball is called America's pastime while if baseball doesn't watch out, baseball's time is going to be passed when a team or a player doesn't do something that's considered right. Fans mentally put an asterisk next to that player or team. Baseball had better watch out because this whole season's going to be an Asterisk, and the way address is going to be spelled as with two S.'s not one. Get Your Act together. Guys America needs you and you need us. I'm Steve Forbes. Thank you for being with us. Give me your views on this dispute. I look forward to seeing you next time..
