How failure can led to massive success

"Hey, their freedom fighters, Miami's Andrew Warner and the founder Mixer g where I interview entrepreneurs about how they built their businesses. You know one of the big hesitations that we entrepreneurs get in our heads before we start something is. Going to be a lot of time a lot of work. Some of our money maybe a lot of our money and Risking all of it along with our credibility on an idea on a business that I was gonna say could fail but let's say is likely to. And it causes hesitation it keeps us from starting keeps us from building on. Well, joining me is an entrepreneur who? Entrepreneurs hate it when I say failed but I'm going to say you tell me Charles. If you're uncomfortable with me saying he created this product called T. L. Dr Dot co he his goal was to summarize the interesting content on the Internet. I failed invested a lot of time into it. Put a lot of themselves into it. It's still. Closed. Upset with me saying the word failed you don't seem to be. because. I like to say that the the failure. To stock the more winning business. That's the point I was getting exactly what Charles just said that he because of this business because is bad experience ended up learning how to create businesses learning, what to create went to create it how to figure out what customers are willing to pay for how to get customers. And it's. This was not a bad experience you said. It. was a very good experience is not because you fail that it's a bad experience. You're. Always to to see the the good ways of things and the see that's a a an experience is experience and you have to take the most. It's an thing is what we did we geology are is that we look back at what we did and What we did great. What did he do? Wrong. And how we could make it. The next run. And you did the new company that Charles, whose voice you just heard that's Charles Micheletti he is the founder of to Ken. What they do is they help companies take the data that we're all building up and make it easier to express to other people find the meaning of the data, make it actionable. By making the data more visual in- it's especially helpful for CEOS and product Product managers who are building his software into their own platforms, but many other companies in addition to software creators, and by the Charles talk about how well he's doing with his business and we could talk about it. Thanks to to phenomenal sponsors the I. If you're trying to get your ideas off the ground, you gotta check out host dater. And I'll convince you later to go to hostgator dot com slash mixer to do it and the second if you're at the stage where you're kicking around idea for business for a product, I want you to check out my friends over at launch pier where they will build out that first version for you and their launch pure dot com slash mixer g, but I charles the hardest in most awkward and maybe the one that you're most proud of is What's your revenue? So. Our revenue approaching like millions of recurring revenue. Doors ten yet even more than we had an arnold since last time we talked. Yeah, you'd. For I would say approaching. Growing fast and. WHERE WE WILL BE A. Big inning for twenty twenty one in the few just of Schumann's and up until recently, you were bootstrapped about a year ago you took on how much funding? We took twelve million funding. To boost? The growth and to Elvis. A. Meanwhile. Though you hit what four million dollars in revenue by then by the time that you took on more than that, we we it's a six million dollars. Why'd you take on funding? Because it was the right thing to do it. Because you wanted to take a little bit of your money off the table. No it was the right time because we want to skate and we want you to. Higher more senior people. Because you you know that the right time when you see. Will hit some. Glass ceiling. When and if you don't have. Money to invest you you will lose opportunity to. take the market and to. Go Faster. So we knew what were you going to do with the money? What was the vision for it? So we the plan which is still the gun to to invest money in a few different areas of the company from is the product because issue onto leader of the growth. Strategy you need a Marie strong and differentiated products. So I would say that nearly a third of the offending.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Unveils "Pandemic Budget"

"Lightfoot the budget proposal includes a ninety four, million dollar property tax hike gas tax hike and layoffs as well as eliminating unfilled positions carol it seems like there are not that many maybe just a few good choices to turn to when you've got a one point two, billion dollar deficit. Brandis I think you don't even want to say good choices. Because, there are none. And you could route around for crop corporate head tax for transaction tax neither of which is going to pass muster of for most of the city council, a a number of other remedies that would need state legislative approval. There are no good choices, and then you say, do we go deeper into the rainy day fund immediately in the answer probably is no not right now because the pandemic is going to bring us maybe third wave of emergencies. So there's nothing cheerful about this only bad options. The mayor also stressed quote. Congress do your job to urge funding for cities towns. People are going to be receiving layoff notices on March first heather city employees. I would imagine between now and then a pretty anxious wondering whether or not they're going to be on the chopping block when that happens. That's right. It's a really a between a rock and a hard place and I think the mayor said, well, at least we can. We can. We have enough money in the bank to sort of put off this pain in the hopes that it something does pass the Senate and get signed either by a press, a president trump or future president biden and potentially But that's that's really hard on families and we heard mayor like talk. About that saying she knew she grew up in a family that lived paycheck to paycheck and that had to rely on food thinks giveaways when her father lost her job and I think that wears on her but it will not blunt criticism from progressive groups and others who say that this budget will really land hardest on the poorest chicagoans because of course, if you're living paycheck to paycheck and you might not have a job come. March. Second. That's very difficult place to be especially at a time were really high unemployment and the mayor also emphasized that there would be no reduction of service despite requiring furlough days for Non Union employees. Here's what she said sees and layoffs. We are also seeking five furlough days from all non union workers and I will lead by example and take those five furlough days myself. And we have worked with every city department to make sure that these personnel reductions will not result an immaterial decrease in the delivery of services to our residents. Amanda isn't going to be hard for residents and taxpayers to believe that services will remain the same under these difficult circumstances if you if you don't have some influence on the job some days. Well. There are rules around what can and can't be done in somebody is on furlough I'm going to guess that Mayor Lori lightfoot leading by example will still be working as mayor. There is no time off. So many of these are high level positions I don't think that you're going to see a dramatic cut or of the many things that we're going to worry about in the in the budget that that is going to be, and I will add that it's sort of difficult to measure these. Days, anyways, some departments presumably have a little bit less going on because of COVID nineteen end less demand for those services. Others are needed more than ever because residents are dependent on that but you're also giving services to residents in different ways again, because many people are staying at home. So it's all just going to be difficult to measure, but I think a choice that the mayor had to make particularly issues looking to these other choices of layoffs and raising property taxes she had to do some furloughed. Parents the mayor also says that she does not support so-called defunding the police, but she does support. Changing which first responders answer calls? How big is changing the first responder model while she's talking about a pilot program, which we don't know the specifics of yet. But this is something that is united people on both sides of this quote unquote defunding police battle. I've had so many police, officers and first responders tell me over the years that they don't want to be responding to. These certain types of calls, domestic issues, mental health people having a breakdown equipped to do it. They want to do police work, and they believe that work should be left up to mental health providers. So there is a program in Los, Angeles they've been doing this in Los Angeles where those calls go to there's a psychiatric mobile unit that runs around the city and offers services. And I've had first responders here. Tell me we need to do what L. A. is doing. So maybe this is what the mayor's talking about and it's it's so strange that you know defunding police engender so many emotions on both sides and yet this is actually something that police officers and activists actually agree on something. Yeah. Community agrees on this as well. Heather what's next? We're going to see a very tough battle in city. Council. I think we are So I think the biggest sticking point is going to be not only the ninety four, million dollar total property tax side but the mayor also wants to change the way the city levies property tax every year by changing it to an automatic increase, which is tied to the increase, the cost of living which is set by the federal government every year, and she says that that will avoid big property tax hike sort of on it every so often basis but I think that there are going to be some older minute we're GONNA have to. Sort of take a deep breath before they decide whether to vote for that because, of course, the municipal elections are just around the river bend at in two thousand and twenty three, and that could make winning reelection and more difficult. I. WanNa follow up here because I'm confused, we've got the one point two billion dollar budget gap, but there's also hundred million dollar budget gap this year because a revenues came in so much lower than what intimidated obviously because of covid how is that? Does that money just get sweeped into the next year I don't understand how that works. For the stint as might what I do right now. Is being filled by refinancing city data. So essentially, they're taking debt that it is at a higher interest rate. They're sort of refinancing it hoping to get a lower interest rate and they're taking those savings and then using that to cover the

Political Ad Nauseam

"As much as campaigns want to keep spending secret federal law actually requires TV stations around the country to disclose all the political ads, the campaigns by and those TV ads account for something in the ballpark of sixty percent of campaign ads. Spending a lot of the rest is stuff like Google and facebook ads at those companies actually don't have to disclose as much information about the ads. So today we're going to focus on. TV. Spending the majority of the spending. So think of the United States as a giant game board to campaigns walk around the board they put some of their ad money down this part. Of the country a little bit more over here, and the way they put that money down tells us what places they think are most important for winning the election. If you're looking just at the state level, the bronze medal goes to Wisconsin Sixty, four, million dollars, worth of TV ads they're not surprising. Wisconsin was one of those states that trump flipped from the democratic column back in Two Thousand Sixteen Silver Medal Pennsylvania with one hundred, seven, million dollars worth of TV ads also not surprising Purple State with twenty electoral votes and in first place with one. Hundred thirty, three, million dollars America's favorite election meltdown waiting. Oh Florida, my beloved Florida. Now, this is just are beginning calculation. We're going to dig in more, but there are lessons to learn just looking at the big picture the big campaign game board. Yes. So so take Florida this is not a monolithic place. You're going to have super republican areas like the panhandle and then big democratic areas around places like Miami and you might imagine that the most. Cost effective thing is for the Republicans to completely pull out of the democratic strongholds and vice versa. But in fact, neither political party is doing that the whole state is getting bombarded with ads from both sides Daniel. Butterfield. From the Super PAC PRIORITIES USA she says it can start to turn into something like an arms race. So when you see your opponent spending money in a market, it really raises The question of should I be spending money there to to keep up area competitive and if you want to understand why political spending just keeps going up, it's at least partly because of his arms race if your opponents bins more in, Tampa you have to spend more in Tampa which in turn makes the cost of ads in. Tampa that much more expensive. Next thing you know you blue one. Hundred thirty, three, million dollars in Florida. Danielle says, the arms race thing is not just irrational fear. There's a real electoral cost to waving the white flag in a particular area. If you're in an ad market and your opponent clears out, that is great news for you. You have the airwaves to yourself. Your advertising goes a lot further in terms of impact than if you have to opponents that are. Driving opposite messages is there like a particular tipping point to that that sort of campaign folks like you gotTa. Spend the twenty percent otherwise. Like what counts as as not being drowned out. Good? Yeah. There is actually a lot of areas some data behind like what is the particular percentage that is required? It's I'd say that's probably more of a secret sauce that I wouldn't necessarily WanNa name on this podcast for you know that numbers, you're just tell me. I I. Know. Roughly what percentage I think is useful is, is it twenty three percent? You got it. But okay. So fine lots of money being spent in Florida but this is not a very specific answer to our question who is the most expensive voter we want to be more granular, which is why we got her hands on a more precise data set. Thank you advertising analytics. This data set is GonNa let zoom in on every single television market in the entire country. So for example, we know that forty million dollars has been spent in the Orlando Daytona. Beach Melbourne market. Compare that to the grand rapids, Kalamazoo Battle Creek Michigan market where it's twelve million dollars and sure there's more people in Orlando but still, how are the campaigns arriving at exactly forty million and exactly twelve million to help answer that we brought in some help Michael Beach. CEO. Crushing Media Michael Runs an advertising analytics company now, but he has worked in the past for the presidential campaigns of George W Bush John McCain Mitt Romney, and the reason we wanted to talk to Michael is his whole job. is to figure out where companies or sometimes political campaigns should place millions of dollars. Worth of ads Michael has all this fancy proprietary software. If you're an advertiser, he can tell you whether you should be focusing your ads on like Republicans, with Minivans are Democrats ride motorcycles or neither. He's got all these different attributes in his computer thousands of attributes for. Anything from certain partisanship to likelihood to buy a Ford truck into those do those specific categories correlate. Yes and no it like it's pretty geographic if you're looking at northeast, Ohio or you're you know. You're in Alabama in the Senate race. that. Wouldn't be a probably a good signal. Reich is like. As owner everyone drive structure. Now, the reason we went to Michael is because we thought it might be interesting to look at how many dollars were being spent on any given swing voter swing voters in theory are people who might be influenced by a political ad. The problem is it is very hard to pin down exactly how many of these people are out there but Michael Software can at least take a stab at it what is GonNa do is go through all these data sets to first identify how many likely voters there are in a particular TV market and then identify which of those has even the tiniest probability of changing their vote and a lot of this calculation is just sifting out the diehards. If you are somebody who voted in the last five, Democratic primaries were every year you donate to the R. N. C. You are out. But maybe your party affiliation switched a couple of times. Maybe you're a first time voter that may put you in this bucket the basically using generic party model and generic it's party not not candidate. Driven in other words, we're estimating voters chances to swing between Democrat and Republican as opposed to trump and biden specifically. But there's still does give us a way to compare across TV markets and when you re ranked the country based on dollars spent per swing voter the markets are not in Florida. In fact, the top five ad markets are all in Pennsylvania and number one on that list where campaigns are spending around ninety dollars per likely swing voter. Is My home television market the region in western Pennsylvania in and around Erie Pennsylvania. Okay. So Kenny you grew up there like what is it? What is the what are we talking about just to be clear I grew up in Meadville which is south of Erie, but it's in the market and like yeah, this is a region with a lot of manufacturing jobs these jobs have been leaving. It's predominantly white its having the. Same kind of brain drain problem that a lot of the other parts of the so-called rust belt are having. But look like I don't know anything about who a potential swing voter would be in the Erie television market. This is why we have Michael's fancy software. It can help us understand who that is. What can we know about the Eerie Market area? How does it compare to the rest of the country? Like who's there? It opened up my magic machine here. Michael Punches Eerie plugs in a few numbers so it's running. Then he opens up a tab that lets us compare the Erie population as a whole to just the likely swing voters. So now I look at in. Eerie. For instance, the average adult is fifty three years old if you just take the whole population in the market. Target, audience if you said. swing likely to turn out is forty seven other words. Michael's machine is telling us that the average swing voter is is six years younger than the average, their forty, seven years old, and the other incredible thing about Michael's machine is that it's also able to spit out this whole media plan for how to reach those people. The machine can name the single TV show watched by the most swing voters. Each week that show in the Eerie area is the OT on Fox football shows or wrap up of the day's games. That'd be fair. that is one of the most watched shows in the entire country. But the numbers do show that in terms of efficiency like sports would be a pretty good way to get your ad in front of a decent chunk of swing voters in Erie Pennsylvania Espn you can reach sixty percent on eerie and a week. Again, this target in this market if the secret to understanding what the campaigns are thinking is to learn where the most money is being spent per swing voter. That place

Delaying COVID-19 relief could do lasting damage

"We are not going to hazard a guess here about what is going to happen with negotiations on an economic relief bill the negotiations that the president shutdown yesterday afternoon, and then tried to restart piecemeal. Last night what we are going to do is deal the facts as we have them now, which is that there are no negotiations and as far as anybody knows, there is no help coming for this economy till after the election and maybe longer. So that being case two stories today on that topic, and then a political insight marketplace's Mitchell Hartman gets going with story number one the. Big Picture. Back, in March Washington sent three trillion dollars coursing through the economy's veins. One of the biggest infusions was six hundred dollars a week in extra unemployment payments to more than twenty million jobless Americans that expired midsummer and George Washington University economist J Shamba says the amount of cash going out to laid off workers cratered it fell from one hundred, ten, July two, thirty, four, million dollars in September. So there's this massive drop off to the economy and also to the most vulnerable households those twelve hundred dollar relief checks from the spring have been spent with most of the federal pandemic relief now gone.

Trump's tax revelation, what are the highlights?

Trump's tax revelation, what are the highlights?

"Donald J trump paid seven hundred and fifty dollars in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency in his first year in the White House he paid another seven hundred and fifty dollars. He had paid no income taxes at all in ten of the previous fifteen years largely because he reported losing much more money than he made. So that's the lead. In this is in reporting from New York Times Sunday afternoon by investigative reporters Russ Butner Suzanne Craig, and Mike Macintyre now Russell Suzanne incidentally or two of the three that dropped the huge story on trump's finances in October of two thousand, eighteen ahead of the midterm elections. and that was fueled by the financial documents provided by Mary trump who is now suing the president and his siblings by the way for defrauding her out of millions of dollars. But back to today's story from the New York Times quote. The New York Times has obtained tax return data extending over more than two decades for Mr Trump and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization including detailed information from his first two years in office. It does not include his personal returns for two, thousand, eighteen or twenty nineteen. This article offers an overview of times findings. Additional articles will be published in the coming weeks. So this one, hundred and ninety two paragraph long story is an overview of the times findings. this is the sparks notes the abridged version the Reader's digest abridged story. And I'm GonNa go over the key highlights with you. Hundred Ninety two paragraphs is the overview of what they found. And they're going to be releasing multiple stories in coming weeks for details about what they've uncovered an important caveat here by their very nature, the filings will leave many questions on answered. These tax returns that they got many questions will be unfulfilled. They comprise information that Mr. Trump has disclosed to the irs not the findings of an independent financial examination they report the trump owns hundreds of millions of dollars in valuable assets, but they do not reveal his true wealth nor do they reveal any previously on reported connection to Russia? This kind of makes sense why Sivan's needs the documents, right These data simply report revenue not profit in two, thousand eighteen for example, trump announced his disclosure in his disclosure that he had made at least four, hundred, thirty, four, point, nine, million dollars. The tax records deliver a very different portrait of his bottom line forty seven point four, million dollars in losses. So he announced his disclosure, he made four hundred and thirty, five million. In here it says he lost forty seven point four million. To that's what he filed his taxes as. All of the information that times obtain was provided by sources with legal access to it. So we can. Try to guess. WHO This to the New York Times prior to the election maybe somebody on the case who knew that the case wouldn't be Sort of we wouldn't see any fruits of that until after the election. I don't know I'd be guessing. These tax data examined. by The Times, provide a roadmap of revelations from write offs for the cost of criminal defense lawyer a mansion used by the family retreat to a full accounting of the millions of dollars that the president received from the twenty thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow. So that's kind of a Russian dealing. The apprentice may trump a total of four, hundred, twenty, seven, point, four, million, which he then invested in a collection of businesses that we're failing mostly golf courses. They steadily devour cash much as the money he secretly received from his father the and how that financed spree of quixotic overspending that led to his collapse in the ninety. the picture that perhaps emerges most starkly from the mountain of figures and tax schedules prepared by Mr Trump's accountants accountants. MAZAAR. Clue. Probably got this from the Manhattan Da Somebody there. This is the picture that emerges starkly is of a businessman president in a tightening financial vice. Most of trump's core enterprises from his constellation of golf courses to conservative magnet. Hotel in Washington I guess it draws conservatives. They all report losing millions if not tens of millions of dollars year after year. His revenue from the apprentice and from licensing deals drying up and several years ago he sold nearly all the stocks that now might have helped him plug holes in his struggling properties and tax looms. And within the next four years more than three, hundred, million in loans and obligations for which he's personally responsible personally will come do. Over the next four years. And these records show the actual and potential conflicts of interest created by trump's refusal to divest himself of his business interest. While in the White House his properties have become havens for collecting money directly from lobbyists, foreign officials, and others seeking facetime access or favors. The record for the first time, put precise dollar figures on these transactions. Here's some examples at the Mar, a Lago Club, a flood of new members starting in two thousand fifteen allowed him to pocket an additional five, million a year from the business people paying for access at his Durrell Golf Course in Miami. The roofing materials manufacturer GIF spent at least one point, five, million in two, thousand, eighteen even has as its industry was lobbying the trump administration to rollback egregious federal regulations conflict. In two thousand Seventeen Billy Graham vandalistic association paid about four hundred thousand dollars to the Washington Hotel where the group held at least one event during its four day World Summit in defense of persecuted Christians. Then when he took office Mr Trump said he would pursue no new foreign deals as president. Even. So in his first two years in the White House is revenue from abroad till seventy three, million dollars. And while much of that money was from his golf properties in Scotland and Ireland some came from licensing deals in countries with authoritarian leaning leaders or thorny geopolitics. For example, three million from Deteriora- from the Philippines two point three, million from India and one million from Turkey. Now the data also contains. Revelations about the one hundred, thirty, thousand dollars payment to Stephanie Clifford Stormy Daniels. The, which is one of the focuses of the Manhattan da Subpoena for trump's tax returns. Another financial information another clue that that might be where they got this. However. They say that it has no new revelations, but there is kind of a revelation because trump has acknowledged reimbursing cohen. Who made the? Payoff. But the materials obtained by The Times did not include any itemize payments to Cohen. The amount however could have been improperly included in legal fees written off as a business expense which are not required to be itemized tax returns that says to me. That trump. Didn't make the payoff where he would have had to have itemize it. Which says to me. It was improperly recorded. As a business transaction. At for legal fees, which is another thing to Manhattan as looking at. Business fraud. Falsifying business documents. Now, no subject has provoked more intense speculation about trump's finances than his connections to Russia while the tax records revealed no previously unknown financial connection and for the most part lack specificity required to do. So they did shed light on the money behind the two thousand thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow at the subject of Enduring Intrigue Because of subsequent investigations into Russia's interference in two thousand sixteen. So basically what the time saying here is that there's nothing itemized here about Russia, but there wouldn't be because it's not required to be in tax returns but boy, did we see something interesting about the? Miss Universe Pageant in twenty thirteen. The records show that the pageant was the most profitable Miss Universe during trump's time is co owner and that generated a personal payday of two point three million dollars made possible by the Aguilara F- family at least in part who would later help set up the infamous twenty sixteen trump tower meeting. For. Officials seeking dirt on Clinton with Veselnitskaya who is now we know connected directly to the Kremlin. The record show that in two thousand thirteen to paget reported thirty one point six, million in gross receipts. That's the highest since at least the nineties allowing trump and his co owner NBC's split the profits of four point seven million by comparison trump and NBC lost two million on the deal the year before. Moscow and made three point eight million from the one the year after. So it appears the Russia one. Made money and made a lot of money a lot more money than it ever has before. So did. Russia overpaid trump for this event. Wonder why? In Two thousand, thirteen?

Conviction politics: Floridas disenfranchised felons

"Joe Biden took to the campaign trail in Florida, this week. As a rally for Hispanic voters Mr. Biden emphasized seemed like a eight point. Getting people out to vote. So please. This election. Make your vote her. Through your vote, your voices her. Make a plan to vote has been pointed out. Make your plan to help your community for. But the very act of voting in this year's election has become contentious. President trump has been railing against mailing voting is having little evidence of fraud this whole ballot system where you can send it in. and. It's not even requested. We're not talking about it solicited. They're unsolicited ballots and they're sent in is very dangerous or our country and in Florida a fight over voting rights for former felons could see hundreds of thousands of people disenfranchised. So. In Two thousand eighteen voters in Florida approved a constitutional amendment allowing felons who had served their time except for murderers at certain sex related offenders to vote in elections. After that amendment passed Florida's Republican legislature passed a law saying, that's fine. They can vote but they have to pay back all the fines, fees and restitution costs of their incarceration. John Facile is economists. Washington correspondent. So that's the sort of thing that sounds quite reasonable. Right if you stole one hundred bucks from someone, you gotta pay back what you stole before you can vote but Florida's criminal justice system is unusually reliant on fines and fees from offenders. So you have people who had been convicted of felonies poor people who had to pay fifty dollars to get a public defender or one hundred bucks for some sort of fee to file a complaint. then. You also had fines levied on them that were quite heavy. So I spoke to one woman who was convicted of her part in a fraud scheme that she says was unwitting, but she was ordered to pay back fifty, nine, million dollars and no. One's ever going to be able to do that. I spent time with another young man who was convicted of a felony while he was basically just out of school and it turns out that when he went to registered to vote, he owed four thousand dollars to the county where he was arrested nobody had ever told him. That and other courts allowing this law to stand the courts have let it stand on Friday the last court in Florida weighed in and they've let the stand the court said the fines and fees were part of the criminal sentence. So they couldn't be said to a fully completed their full sentence until they had paid off everything they were told to pay off. So it looks as though almost eight hundred thousand people who thought they would be able to vote may not be able to vote and so is the supreme court likely to weigh in at this point now again? It's probably not going to go to the supreme. Court again, they declined to hear it in July, before that last appeal they declined over the strong objections of Justice Sotomayor who accused her colleagues of continuing trend of condoning disenfranchisement that's in Florida is this happening else? Well, the rules regarding where and how felons can vote changed dramatically from state to state you have some states like for mountain main where people can vote while in. Prison and you have some states like Florida used to be where if you've been convicted of a felony anytime, you never have the right to vote. So it's a Patchwork of laws regarding felony and franchise, but the trend has been over the past decade or so to loosen restrictions rather than strengthen them. But as we've seen in Florida sometimes that involves bats lighting sometimes the loosening isn't as loosened practice as it appears it should be. Felons aside, how easy or hard is it in general for people who exercise their right to vote in America? It's harder than I think it should be it's harder than most people think it should be it used to be the case that the Voting Rights Act which was passed in nineteen sixty five required jurisdictions with a history of voter discrimination. To submit any changes to how they conduct elections to the Justice Department in two, thousand, thirteen, the supreme court basically gutted it. The Voting Rights Act they said that requirements should no longer apply since then around seventeen hundred polling places have closed and previously covered jurisdictions, the largest numbers were in Texas Arizona and and most of those places are in heavily minority district. There's also the problem of long lines often what I found that I was recovering Super Tuesday in Texas before everything shutdown is that in suburban precincts. White it was much easier to vote than in inner city precincts, which were which were heavily African American of the Tino. In two, thousand, sixteen around half a million voters failed to cast ballots at their polling places because of problems at those polling locations. So I think people tend to think of voter suppression as as physically keeping people away from the polls that really doesn't happen. What does happen is that the exercise the franchise is likely to be much more onerous if you're a non white than if you're white, are we seeing any of those problems this round this time round for the election that's coming up. Yeah. We saw them in full force in Wisconsin in their primary earlier this spring in April. Shortage of poll workers as much of America does as result, they're only five precincts total in the city of Milwaukee, which is the state's biggest city in which had one hundred, eighty precincts in two, thousand sixteen. There are a lot of places that are really concerned about having enough poll workers to have all the polling place that should be open poll workers tend to be retirees, which puts them at high risk of Covid, and so a lot of them understandably don't WanNa come out and and sit in the crowded place for long hours. But there's a fear that this shortage of poll workers is GONNA lead to a lot fewer polling places in there should be. Perhaps. It's a naive question but why would anyone want to make harder for people to vote? So there are those who say that because Republicans are so dependent on older white voters who tend to be the most reliable voters that is in their interest to make it harder for non white and young voters to vote. Donald Trump. When he was talking about expanding postal voting essentially gave the game away. He said they had things levels of voting that if you ever agree to it, you'd never have a republican elected in this country again. So it seems as though Republicans rather than trying to appeal to as many voters as possible regardless of race color creed or. Are really trying to tailor the electric to best suit themselves. What about voting by mail something that would seem obvious into pandemic but that's been hugely divisive. This round hasn't it. Yeah Donald Trump has been inveighing against it, which is odd because there's a ton of research that shows that voting by mail tends to improve turnout but not for any particular political party more recently, he has been encouraging his supporters to vote by mail I. Think he has got nervous that if Democrats vote by mail and huge numbers and Republicans don't vote by mail at all then this may lead to an imbalance in the results that doesn't favor him. There have been polls that have showed that as many as fifty percent of Democrats, more plan to vote by mail whereas only one in five Republicans do you can imagine it sort of pandemic situation in red states where Republicans don't want to go to the polls but think that voting by mail is corrupt is now trying to walk back some of the damage you may have caused. How do all these trends impact the election this year? Do you think John? I think that between the president inveighing against the election warning that it's going to be rigged concerns about foreign interference. There is an alarming number of Americans people on both sides of the aisle who thinks that this year's election won't be free and fair I. Think there are concerns that people may be less likely to vote and that once they vote, they'll be less likely. To accept the results of the elections that is going to lead people to lose faith in democracy itself for those who do want get the vote out what are they doing about it? Well, people can check their registration status early, they could make sure that their friends and neighbors are all registered. I think there's a lot of worry among Democrats because traditional touch points that. They use to register voters you know the DMV or college voter registration drives those aren't happening now because of the pandemic and there are fears that young people are not registering at the numbers they should be. But for Florida's felons, there have been organizations that are working to pay off fines and fees almost four million dollars have been raised so far. Bloomberg who had been. Running for president said, he will spend one hundred million dollars of his own money to help Joe Biden win in. Florida. I think there's there's a hope that some of that will go to paying off fines and fees, but unfortunately, it looks like whatever happens not everyone who thought that they would be eligible to vote will, in fact, be eligible to vote this fall in Florida.

Why No One Is Entirely A Buy And Hold Investor

"I got an email last week from a member of money for the rest of US plus. He has been listening to my show for over four years and loves it. You continue to like the way you explain financial strategies and how you occasionally cover the more personal aspects of life as well as investing. This gentleman retired three years ago when he turned fifty six, he has four million dollars in investable assets half, which is in cash and bonds. He follows one of the adaptive model portfolios on the website and converted over ten percent of his assets out of stocks in March based on the monthly investment conditions strategy report, we do on money for the rest of. US. Plus. He wrote to be honest decision I now heartily, regret. He could generate I really liked the sound logic. The analysis based approach you promote to help, decide how to dial up or down allocations to different asset classes in acknowledge your modifications have resulted in some investment success that said, I've typically been a classic buy and hold investor writing out the dips but this time in March I followed the logic to reduce the allocation stocks and wait for conditions to improve we all know how that turned down. How did it turn out? We have had the fastest bear market recovery ever in the US and around the world. His concern is that by the time investment conditions deteriorate or improve is already being reflected in market prices. Is there even a reason to make any adjustments to our asset mix? He I also know this was a very unusually fast drop and recovery. But as I plan to stick around as a plus member and take some level of guidance from the investment conditions, it seems like a fair question ask about what level back testing is available to see how this method works as an alternative to my old approach to just buy hold. I also recognize your approach covers asset classes, versus just stocks versus bonds and types of bonds such as real estate looks good or bad high yield looks good or bad etc.. Now, this monthly investment condition and strategy record has commentary and metrics to help individuals stick to the portfolio plan or perhaps to make adjustments as risk changed. Focuses on valuations, economic trends and investors sentiment. It relies on my over two decades of investment experience but also draws on data provided by institutional investment and Economic Research Services that we pay tens of thousand dollars per year to access. Now, I'm not trying to sell you on plus membership in this episode, but to be frank is email kind of bothered me a little bit not that he wrote it I think there's a absolutely fair questions and deserve a fair response. What bothered me was the challenges I've had in trying explain what portfolio management is. This member feels regret for a decision. He made one decision, but portfolio management involves many many decisions. I saw a tweet last week that also kind of bothered me not because there was anything wrong with the tweet, but it raises the question is better to trade buying individual stocks or to use options. Her view was better to use options because they're less expensive. That might be true. Again deciding to buy individual stocks with options that's just one decision. Wealth is not built preserved by buying individual options following the latest hot stock tip. Trading Foreign Exchange or following the guidance of Investment Newsletters that sometimes have doomsday scare tactics. My background is in institutional portfolio management. I worked with major universities like Texas, a, and m university. I was their investment advisor for thirteen years. They have over a billion dollars in assets. I've worked with other universities in private foundation. We often met with investment committees to tackle all the decisions involved a managing a portfolio the same decisions that individuals have to make in fact, individuals have to make even more decisions when it comes to managing an investment portfolio. What I have found is institutional investors and serious individual investors. They follow a disciplined portfolio approach. They focus on global multi asset class portfolios. They rely on reasonable expect to return and risk assumptions to make asset allocation decisions. Their focus is on a Chievo real net of inflation growth.

The GREATEST Wealth Strategy of All Time with Reshveen Rajendran

"The greatest wealth strategy of all time who is not going to press play on this I mean fire nation if you're listening to this right now you obviously did I'm excited chat about this because there's a lot we're going to be covering and you have quite the story forest US brothers. So let's dive right into the story because I want to know how does a person go for making a million dollars a year to a million dollars a week break down for This year collected to combat a once and what happened was Tony Robbins became speaking been. Talked about how to dominate me say there's one Gorby said if you give more than every other person to give more Salvia yourself more than every other person in your industry, then you dominate and you win. Any. Seat John I think sometimes you know. Sometimes gets in your body in your soul. So like did quarter really really sunk in men how do you? How do I give more than everybody else and then really really stood something thinking my spirit is this something in my soul. Came back. Entrepreneur on file. Also, fire on fire to give money every single person all day in my industry and dude, you know like if you seen my actions like the action that. Are Given so much a neural. Brunton did something you said give your best stuff for free? I need this things man I need this do things I get my best offer free contrary what entrepreneurs beliefs And I. meet. Sure that I guess more than everybody else out there that nobody would even catch up what else doing this Halloween four million dollars in a year to generating a million dollars in a single week in the month of June I mean fire nation. This is one of those lessons you just have to really absorb just like rush Wien absorbed at Tony Robbins quote so. Eloquently it is critical to recognize the fact that when people don't know you when they don't necessarily have the opportunity to trust you yet they're not just going to lay down their hard earned money to invest in a product or a service or coaching from you like whatever that might look like you need to earn that trust and what better way than what rush Wien. Is talking about by giving the best of yourself for free to completely out serving your competition to such a level that you absolutely dominate and rush, and you're talking to fire nation. It's it's a massive audience around the world and a lot of people right now are saying, well, how do we even get started like I'd love to make a million dollars a week heck. I'd love to make a million dollars a year mean I'd love to make a million dollars over the next five years. That's a lot of money. But what would you say is the best way for somebody listening right now who has very little to get started generating income for themselves. Good. I. Love This. I. Love Your Question Man I love Christian and Syed. I have. I run my company Eramet Company. DEEM RUSH DOT COM check me out and stuff but ironic company in John. I wanted to share with you that I have this vision sue big in my vision is to create the largest community of givers in the would. That's my vision. That's what I've actually set my mind to do. In you know, it's very interesting that you asked me the question because just yesterday somebody actually asked me the same question, right? He is like. So again, a swimming bullock following me and yesterday somebody actually means wishing. He's like rush. Why don't you reply? Why don't you reply to messages right. So again, let me read you this exact messages crazy man, right so You to play I know you told me give more or you didn't know this but I have nothing to give men I will surely stop giving once not growing. Right see the problem is is in many people always see I will give I get rich I will give what I have the knowledge I will you know I will do whatever it takes but. When heavy but he meant you give when you have nothing. I don't know if it makes sense like what I'm seeing. Make sense but you know it's like. Women people tell me that. I was giving when I started growing I'll stop the meeting when I actually make money doesn't make sense. To me is like telling me like he made, I'll stop eating right excising. When I get expect right? Like Dude, you get the six pack because you're eating right and because you are

Evofem To Launch On-Demand Contraceptive

"Today we're GonNa talk about a company that is trying to commercialize a female contraceptive and the company's called Yvo FEM and their product is called sexy and it's going to be launched actually in the next few days. So I wanNA talk about them as the main story, and then we're going to start with some updates from Gilead O'Donnell as well as bio Merrin and actually we got some news from Amarin today that I'm GonNa touch on just very very briefly because I haven't. Totally incorporated it into my portfolio yet, but we did see some dramatic news from them. So with that, let's get going and the first thing I want to talk about is the Gilead, news that we heard and what we found out is that they were issued a complete response letter for the approval of Phil God's Nib, which was their treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. So, this is a bit of a surprise I would say and Phil God was going to be something that replaces revenue streams that are slowly starting to fall off a patent for Gilliat and they're gonNA start to feel that in the form of loss of revenue and forgotten it was kind of shoe into get approved by the FDA issued them this complete response letter saying that they will not approve the drug unless certain conditions are met and usually when companies receive Sierra L. either it's unconditional in the sense that they don't have any recourse or it has conditions on it and hear what we. Found out that the FDA wanted more data from their face, three Manta and Manta Ray studies before completing its reviewed, the NBA and they're specifically concerned about issues in male sex organs. So Gilead is going to have to provide this data, the FDA before they will approve it, and it looks like from what I looked very briefly on the clinical trials dot Gov site is that the primary completion date isn't until early twenty, twenty one where they final completion date of twenty, twenty four. Now Juliette is pre savvy. So I feel like they'll be able to eventually overcome these hurdles once they provide some data. So I. don't see it being long long-term hindrance of the company, but we've seen the stock get hammered pretty hard since the glory days of remedy severe and in general has been kind of slow to adopt new therapies to their pipeline in order to maintain that growth that people expect. So hopefully, with the approval of Fil gone, they'll be able to replace those drugs that are falling off of patent and be able to maintain their value that way. But personally no position for me from Gilead but I thought it was interesting to point this APP. Nasr Company. I WanNa talk about is by Merrin, and they are trading at a fourteen billion dollar market cap now, and they were also issued a complete response letter for Rock Avian and this was their hemophilia, a gene therapy and I've touched on Hemophilia A and. A number of different videos but I haven't touched the topic in a while. I did notice the CRO though and it's interesting because the conditions that the FDA wanted in order to approve the drug was evidence from two years of data for its ongoing phase three trial to support the durability of the gene therapy. So this is obviously kind of rough for the company because the bar is rarely set this high for other companies that two year window of therapy is going to be maintained. This has me questioning the gene therapy space as a whole that you know other companies that have invested in say route Jenex bio if they're going to have to show two years of data to show that it is a Gerbil effect, this obviously plays into the models and delays the time at which it's GonNa take for them to get revenue. So kind of. makes. Me Nervous about the gene therapy space but you know different diseases seem to have different thresholds for what the FDA wants and it's tough to predict. So thought it was worth bringing up and just for those who are actually following by man, their last phase three patient will complete two years of follow up in November twenty, twenty, one, serve you're expecting revenue from this drug. Now you're GonNa have to wait until twenty, twenty two proudly see any revenue. So that's a disappointment even though the drug does help us significant number of patients. All right. Moving on I WANNA touch on otani therapeutics ticker symbol od T, and they're trading now at around five hundred, seventy, four, million dollar market cap for those that don't remember I, touched on this a while ago they were short candidate that I had once I seemed like they had a run up in the stock for no obvious reason, and then I sold it off in anticipation of run up to this event that we just saw news to, and they're commercializing a tax seen that is given orally. So right now has to be given IV in a lot of complications surrounding that a lot of hurdles that patients he'd go through to get this. Treatment and it's Kinda tedious. So if he can come up with an oral version, it would be much better for patients and that's what Oh Donald Trump do here. So what we heard is that their face three contessa trial achieved primary endpoint and what they were looking at is test attacks will their drug plus bean compared to just capital being alone, and the results showed that the progression free survival was significantly better in the tax will plus Kapustin group rather than just cap aside to being alone nine point eight months versus six point nine months with a hazard ratio of zero point seven to just pretty good and value point zero, zero three.

This $4.6 Million Tournament Got DDOSD

"Much like the Overwatch League. The call of duty league continued its inaugural season online despite the cove nineteen outbreak. This past weekend marked its first ever playoff matches. We're talking like the biggest event, the biggest prize pool in cody history. On the ultimate driven grounds co look duties delete convert. Dead moment stares you in the face join no one. Rolling isn't. Skipping. Over is easy. is taking. But as things got underway while the some issues, the cod community had to deal with something. They're actually not that unfamiliar with going back to the days of advanced warfare, pro play online de Dos, attacks, and mid match booting of pro players basically because the games were being played on locking hackers would go in Diaz attack and boot Appro player from a live game at the highest level of play out there. This was pretty crazy and in the optic versus Ellie guerrillas it actually got so bad that optic at the sub in a different player because Kenny had been booted multiple times already in the match. Yeah. They all I, it looks like Kenny no longer in the in the server. So something happened there. So they're trying to do this four versus five right now. When did he try? It's been about over a minute and as you might imagine, the pro community was pissed obviously the competitive integrity of the Games are being called into question and pros were asking for things like postponing the event or boycotting entirely a really long time ago in a land when dinosaur a whirlwind when dinosaurs roamed the earth advanced warfare was a game and in that, there was an online lead and hitting people off line was an issue so much. So to the point where the league had to be restarted because it was impossible to avoid everyone's getting hit off. Again, and this has become an issue to the point where now it's impacting four million dollar tournament. This tournament has more than four million dollar prize by far the biggest payout in the history of call of duty. So for me, those frustrated tweets are seeing while they kind of make sense at minimum from twitter reports alone at least five players had this problem literal Diaz attacks in the middle of the playoffs. Now, luckily, for optic, the example I showed above didn't cost them the match but many players have speculated if they were playing against any team other than the lonely L. A. Guerrillas. It could have been a different story, fig it close it out here saucer PGA. Thanks saint flasks man he's been spotted broth and TJ. Trading there is big telezapper optic they're gonNA, get this series win. So you're activision blizzard you're putting the situation in the middle of the biggest tournament of all time in your brand new league in the middle of a global pandemic. What are you doing? Well, they're quick fix actually ended up being to start the matches off walk that way these attackers couldn't get to the players live many players also started to scramble their Ip addresses to make it even more difficult. So they made that change and everything was fine. Until it was on. August twenty first, the third day of playoff competition fans started to notice that scores were updating on the coal duty League playoff website before the matches had actually started on St keep in mind, I? Didn't tell anybody they were making this change. So as far as fans were concerned, these matches were being played lot. So when the Chicago Huntsman were playing the New York subway liners and fans could see the results of the first two maps before the game even started onstream people were a little confused and it's obviously awkward. If you're a fan right, you don't just want to. See The score you WanNa see the game and it gets even more awkward when you gambling to the mix this change was made pretty quickly. They didn't exactly have time to let Vegas now. So for a short while you could bet on a game while already knowing the results of the first babs, what's more is that some of the players being targeted by the DOS attacks. In the first place suggested that those might also be related to betty. You see the League was hosting a special perfect bracket challenge that awarded a hundred thousand dollars to anybody that had a perfect bracket all the way through the play offs similar to what you know. They do with March madness in college basketball, the bracket challenge coupled with the fact that all these attacks were. Happening on hard point, a type of match where in the rules, it's very difficult to replay them make this all very sketchy fear a hacker playing this bracket challenge and you want to make your hundred thousand dollars you go and you target your Diaz attacks towards hard point. So you can actually influence the results of those matches, its one, hundred, Fifty, seven points they passed that threshold. To basically this is to you know Kinda kind of. Levy in issues of it happens like the start of the game is really early in a game and you know somebody's played without unfortunately in this particular circumstance, it happens. Happens a bit deeper but yeah, Joe it sucks there's no way around that. No Way to hide from that few. Guys right now like I said off the top booting and Diaz attacks have been a problem multiple times in the history of cod online pro. So. It's baffling to me that this is even allowed to happen in the first place now, betting controversies and Diaz attacks. Aside, this weekend of coal beauty was miraculously able to survive the controversies time Sunday rolled around and teams were competing for their slot in next weekend's talk for matches. Fans were fucking pumped for some call of duty action and a lot of that has to do with Sunday's match that pitted the new off the gaming against the Chicago hunts, which aside from being a highly anticipated series with to good teams have the added drama of pitting obviously the old face of objects gump against an organization that is in many ways shell of its former self and what ensued was a five match bloodbath that peaked at more than a hundred and fifty thousand viewers on Youtube that some people are calling one of the best matches in call of duty history?

Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time

"In year forty four million dollar extension that was a decade ago and that was a notorious contract that for years after was either celebrated or maligned as an extremely team friendly deal and i think players have become more aware of the fact that teams have generally gotten more than their money's worth on those early career extensions for young players and i think they might hold out for more than that and because kunia has just owned every level he's played at as we just talked about and because he's been extremely young at every level while he's done that he is owning major league spring training right now is the number one prospect baseball stats and scouts all agree that he's as close to a can't miss prospect as there is in baseball i just think it would take a ton to sign in longoria had gotten a three million dollar signing bonus in the draft which maybe made him more willing to settle whereas kunia i think signed for only one hundred thousand so this would still be life changing money for him but there's just no way that he would sign away his entire career for less than longoria got for shorter span of time especially now where i think players are really hyper aware of how much they essentially get screwed over by the current economic system in baseball yeah okay so let's see looking at ronald kunia he was given a sixty five future value rating in the fan graphs top one hundred prospect list about a month ago and last summer that converted into an estimated surplus value i know this is making sense listener of about seventy million dollars i think that's undershooting i would suspect that kunis probably more like a seventy arguably even seventy five i don't know he does have some swing and missing his game but if you put them in a seventy than the estimated surplus value for his cost control years is one hundred seven million dollars so if you are curious camp.
