Things like farther afield than anyone knows yet because they just haven't detected e. Yeah so what do we know about this mutation will. It's not a single mutation. It's a variant the calling it variant because rather than just a mutant which is one genetic change. This one's actually got a constellation of genetic changes there are seventeen independent genetic differences in this new variant that seems to confer opponent the ability to spread a bit better and they're peppered throughout the genetic code of the virus they affect v aspects of how the virus works but there's a big cluster of these changes all centered on what's called the essel spike protein. Which is the key part of the virus. That's all of these out coats that it uses to infect ourselves and so this is why researchers think that it may be more transmissible. Something has changed in the way the virus behaves in terms of its its ability to engage with our cells its ability to penetrate and jack cells and then cause disease and then spread to another person We don't know exactly how it's doing that yet. And we don't know for sure that it really is more transmissible but based on the numbers that we're seeing the the epidemiology the pattern of spread. It seems like a likely reasonable supposition. Is it possible that this variation is a response to the measures that we have undertaken to defeat it is is the virus adapting to survive ovar adapt to survive. And that's really what charles darwin point out. And that was his big breakthrough his grand unified theory of biology. If you like that everything responds in a dynamic way. All the time to pressure applied from its environment and where we think. This may have arisen. This new variant is actually in the blood of an individual or individuals with poorly functioning immune systems because individuals. Who don't have a good immune response to the virus. Tend to hang onto the virus fa- longer. They have a chronic infection with the virus. And this means that as their immune system limps along trying to control it the virus is getting a chance to see inner workings of the immune response and it can see where the chinks in our alma and therefore it can adapt and shift in that direction a bid to take advantage of those changes to cling onto survival in that person. Now if that person then transmits a virus which has adapted in this way it's basically passing on a more weaponized or more tooled up version of the virus. The reason that such as a putting forward this hypothesis is because when we have treated patients and documented what happens in them when they have an impaired immune system for various reasons. Were genetic reasons. There are also acquired reasons why people's immune systems might not work very. Well they've seen very similar changes happening in the viruses in those people to this variant that circulating suggesting that it may will be homegrown as it were and borne out of the fact that some people can't can't fight it off as well as efficiently giving the varsity insight into how our immune system works and enabling it to adapt accordingly. I mean we have talked before about the fact that it's not in the interests of viruses whose only interest eads the perpetuation replication. It's not necessarily in the interest of any virus. To kill its hosts. Is it possible that viruses variation to become more transmissible but perhaps less deadly. Well we don't know at the moment and That's one of the key questions that people are going to want to be asking. It's a relatively new discovery first appeared as a blip on the radar of kochi uk. The consortium that founded back in september and the cases them were just a few and far between become a lot more common sense obviously rising to one in four cases in november perhaps as many as sixty percent of cases in december in some parts of the country that means that we've now got the chance to see firsthand in greater detail in greater numbers. What is impact on people is and so people will be asking this very question this thing if it does transmit more efficiently which it appears it does does it as we believe not cause such severe disease or cause any more severe disease than the standard parent from which its rose the moment it doesn't look like it translates into getting more severe disease. It doesn't look like it's currently beyond the reach of the protection conferred by the immune response In response to the vaccine but we don't know that crucial question has it surrendered some of its violence. In order to optimize. In this way time will tell you partially answered what. I'm sure is now the key question because the the glimmer of optimism in which we have all been basking these last few weeks is the approval and roll out of the vaccine. Several hundred thousand people here in the uk have already received at least the first injection. Is it possible that nineteen could mutate or very this quickly Out of the reach of the vaccine. Matt hancock rishaad everybody when he made the announcement last week about the discovery of this new variant. That it didn't look like it would be able to sidestep the immune response conferred by the vaccine the experiments to prove that that is the case. Though are still ongoing. Thankfully they're very easy experiments to do. And that's what porton down will currently be investigating. And i would hope that they will provide that reassurance. Quite soon the way you go about this is you. Grow the virus in the lab and that's actually very easy to do and you add to it samples of the antibodies that a person makes when they're vaccinated and if the antibodies still work against the variant. And you do this with samples across the country. Then you can say these neutralize this virus even though it's the variant and therefore these people will be protected if they have the vaccine. So that's that's kind of what we're waiting for now to to see that data. It's very easy the experiments to go to do them properly though. That will give us reassurance to answer that question what the future holds. Though we don't know and that's why some researches saying this could be a stepping stone on the part of the virus towards a more comprehensive ability to sidestep our immune response including the response to the vaccine and for that. It's a sort of shot across out immunological bowels. We have to keep it onto surveillance. Keep searchlight trained upon it so that we can see where it's moving anticipate is next. Move and try to head off

With rick steves barbara schakowsky and carolina marburger. A listener named barbara in arlington virginia. Emails us at radio. At rick steves dot com on what she recommends about. Frankford and barbara rights. Frankford is perfect city. To visit one can easily walk around or catch the on. That would be local subway historic sites and frankfurt. Paul's church decided. The first german representative government purchase house the cathedral where the holy roman emperor was crowned and the old bridge. The side of the fairytale billy goat gruff. An old town was recently reconstructed to show what frankfurt looks like. Before the bombings of world war two one can sit along the main river and watch the boats go by the city is a vast array of international foods to try as frankfurt has a very diverse population. While barbara summed. It up quite well. They didn't she. She did so relieved. When when we think about frankfurt we think about a diverse population and lots of trade through the centuries. It's been a trade center. My experience with frankfurt is going to trade shows. Yes it has been since the middle ages part of it. Of course being on the rhine and so the biggest global book fair is in frankfurt and alter the sort of the local color is of a bigger city so bigger being probably in english like citizens city so a lot of foundations which americans is more common right charity by citizens and public figures and that is something that makes pot of the pattern of frankford so that the citizens city is burger. Does that mean a businessman or a merchant to merchant bar and someone that is wealthy to certain amount and very involved in city affairs. This is travel with. Rick steves talking about frankfurt and when we were going to frankfurt we've gotta remember. It was a very strategic city in world war. Two and in germany fewer a strategic city. You were targeted by the bombings and there was just horrible bombing in frankfurt. I think frankfurt's done a very good job of rebuilding now. All of the leading german cities in the late nineteen forties had to rebuild and had to decide. Are you gonna rebuild in your medieval higley piggly street plan or you're going to say okay enough of this medieval nonesense. We're going to be like new york. And we're gonna have a grid plan of streets and a big skyscraper. Downtown frankfort decided to go with that was called the manhattan plan whereas munich went with the medieval plan but frankfurt did keep its old medieval corner. The what is it called the rumor. Berg they is the luma back and just newly finished the old newtown the old newtown. When is that our new town.

"I so you might think of this as Trying to figure out whether somebody acted according to their own free will, which is the way people talk? Did they do this their own free will and according to Frankfurt if it was? The will that they wanted to have than the answer is yes, if it wasn't than the answer is no I mean. This is where I say that I think this gets to a good way to analyze how we make. For other people's actions, so when we see an unwilling addict, we have some sympathy for them because we see that they're having tension between a second order, and I order desire. They actually don't want to do drugs, but they're compelled to. They're not free, and so we have some measure of sympathy. And, that's actually what my dissertation was about. We simply described people who acted upon an impulse and. Punch somebody in the face in a bar fight. Sure enough people like think that's bad. They blame you, but if you calmly coolly planned to punch somebody in the face, people think that you're more of an asshole and they blame you more. But what the Frankfurt part came in was showing that the reason that people discounted blamed for the impulsive puncher is that they assumed that that person had a second order desire not to punch right. They lost control in the moment, whereas so they assumed an inconsistent higher hierarchical will. The first order and second order was in conflict in the case of the person who deliberated punch. People assumed that they were consistent right? They had a second order desire to punch that I. Desire to punch the turned into the punch, and that's why people are more likely to judge them badly, and this it seemed to us could explain why, in cases of Praiseworthy, Action You had an asymmetry. So if Tamla you saw somebody you were motivated so much by your empathic compassion. You emptied your wallet to give it to the homeless person..

"Free will meaning that you could be free according to Frankfurt's account that you could have free will in a determined world, so even if everything is determined. The. You can still have free will if what? Frankfurt says, his free will really is free. Will now in the past? We've said that. The the debate over whether something is free will rather than some other kind of freedom or capacity is not that interesting, and I still believe that however what this paper does I think really effectively is. Point, out. A lot of different ways, in which you can be free, and distinguish between them in meaningful ways and that way I think the this paper influence which is massive is is is pretty well deserved. It really did in a fairly clear way outline, different conceptions of freedom and the difference of in significance to them whether in the end you're comfortable calling that free will or not is less interesting to me, but I think the other stuff is what's really important. And you also right like you have some history with this paper because your dissertation was. Yeah I love it. You know yeah. I. Haven't read this in a while. And I remembered why I really liked it, it's. Sort of like with Strossen. which we bonded over I think early on in our in our. Intellectual relationship. Is that what you call it. Whatever euphemism. There's something that he gets right about the psychology. Of how we judge others so when I was doing my dissertation. I relied heavily on this sort of hierarchical view of the will because it captures. I think a way in which we actually judge other people right not by, and we'll get into this, not always by their what we might call their first order desires our impulses. Or wants but rather by what they want to want. Their second order desires now whether or not, this is a good way to be a compatible list about determinism and free will..

That's becoming increasingly rare in a country. That's becoming more and more polarized something that for a lot of frankfurters is unthinkable all. Heidi changed her mind. Uh Okay it is Wednesday July third. I'm standing in front of the chancellery. Chancellory Chancellor Angela Merkel's offices in Berlin about an hour train ride from Frankfurt and today there's a group of about twenty people bowl leaving at least six German flags. Many of them have driven here from Frankfurt surrounding villages to bring their frustrations to the capital.

Franco's kitchen I asked Thomas About Shaffer and about why he thinks at some Germans are so resistant to the idea of diverse society and he named some of the usual culprits that we hear about in the US to like a lack of jobs and resources is and the fear that refugees will take those away.

Has You speak German okay but the culture is different to traditions are different and a longtime. They haven't had perspective in in her own Rowland. It was an immigrant without leaving her house. Just saying because it's like Germany's expecting affecting East Germans to be open to integrating refugees but they themselves haven't been integrated or they've they themselves. This is trying to integrate nor experience. An integration by himself so in other words he says East Germans integrating refugees is a bit like take the blind leading. The blind experts spoke to said that there are real structural differences between the East and West to even thirty years after Unification Germans in the former east on average receive less pay for the same work. They lack representation. The government and in university and company leadership positions one. Recent study showed that ninety. Three percent of Germany's five hundred largest firms are all still based in the West given the scarcity of opportunity many is German see refugees and migrants as has competition rather than a chance for revival.

How do we expand ban the pie instead of fighting about who gets last crumbs because only thinking if he comes I have to leave if she comes? There's no place for me. This is actually how we're driving our societies into a non-democratic struggle. That makes us all very very nervous at the moment and the AFDC campaign on this idea that refugees are taking those crumbs away that they're a threat to the German way of life in the last regional elections.

It's been passed down through the stories. My family tells about that time yeah. Capitalism Broughton you promises but it brought route new unknowns to an after reunification many east Germans felt like they were on the losing side of history they had lived under communism for forty thirty years but suddenly their entire political system and its ideas were a radical. Did and many people struggled to survive in this new capitalist world so my colleague Griffin I decided to head to Frankfurt Oder because we wanted to know how newcomers comers have changed an eastern city that still struggling with the long term effects of reunification and how the newcomers and turn have been changed by a Frankfurt for Tomas and Franca change started at this kitchen table before shave.

And that's how they met Schaefer Schaefer if shares the sense of curiosity and openness that Tomas Infanta have and that brought them to her.

She struggled with recurring nightmares bears with insomnia depression. Eventually she stopped eating and it got so bad. That doctors at one of the shelters sent her to the hospital.

The city is change change. She says but not for the better when she's not cracking jokes. Sir Lighting another cigarette. She's airing her frustrations about what was lost. Asked when East Germany reunified with West Germany the dancing halls where she used to waltz and Fox trodden tango have all been closed and the buyers was owner. She's to know may have been replaced by Burger joins. She says she can't afford of course She knows the east was far from perfect. Like it wasn't always easy to buy things like cars and fruit and there was constant surveillance. Dissidents dissidents were arrested somewhere even killed but people forget what East Germans accomplished like that they were. Among the world's top producers served with their semiconductor plans their steelworks and matchstick factories desire for employed publique in visa. But after re-unification those factories were closed down and outsource across the border to Poland where labour and production costs are cheaper with always. Its loses kite.

And in some parts of the East there were even neo-nazi rallies and violent attacks. Heidi would have never been one of those people marching at a Neo Nazi rally but to her mind.

She came into our office yesterday and we were talking about this us and telling journalists love a nobody buys yes everyone. Everyone and he's one of those things. Were you know I think Tim sells like this is the one chance people you know if they're bringing this in give it a given an opportunity if nobody buys it. I don't think that's happening again.

It's basically it's one Canaan air filter away from six hundred and super high performance midst wagon. Are you in or are you out. I mean absolutely you're in the skincare okay. I won't use it for skiing but there's there's no question that I'm in that Magnum back in the day. The dog came out as as Nici as that char was. It was pretty cool man. We're going to I think so. I think it's an interesting sector. Let's agree to disagree on that on the touch. All you want the only problem with the hour. Drive Your Fox Body for anything in the world man. That's why I bought a lightning buddy. I'm just settled all right so you. The the Audi the Audi like the sensational any problem is one hundred fifteen grand yeah and there's GonNa be a few options yeah by all right but there's not going to be many on the road and it is going to be kind of a NICI thing and especially in this town. Do you want something that's special that's kind of unique and it's not the Super Bright Lime Green g wagon on the giant forty inch tires like you know Yeah Kalfa me right yeah family anyway uh-huh what else false we're going to have their little. Id Three which is in the ground they had the Gulf but this is the first ground up electric car. That's not coming to the US but we are getting SUV version probably next year call the probably GonNa be called the ID four put on base on their platform the electric platform so they basically from the ground up said we're going to build a range of vehicles on these kind of underpinnings and it's been designed. spoke spoke to be electric making a big push around that so it was it was interesting to be really important for vw in you you know in Europe and here the version here. This is a somewhat. Let's let's call it affordable. Electric Vehicle coming from Volkswagen looks like they were trying to make it big play that you know we did the the people's car in the beetle and this is the next people's car. I think I might be overstating it but you know they've even redesigned the Volkswagen box that trying move on from diesel gate. This is a new company inverted commas and they got on the shameless plug coming on Friday. We have a video coming out which is a big roundup. Oh Frankfurt so check that out in the on Edmunds dot com slash road noise okay and all right. So what else did you like at Frankfurt. There was the Lamborghini Syon. She's these hybrid with super capacitors. We talked a little bit about this last week. We were talking about out the capacitors in in sort of replacing the conventional battery although what's your vehicles for so new gets the conventional battery now we're done with the battery. Let's go to capacitors. They're fast charging. They expelled their energy very quickly but it still oh has lamborghini basically door type car stupid money so it's going to have to have a giant engine in it and it's it's an interesting solution for Super Guy a few years ago I drove the nine eleven. Gt three rice call by the hybrid gt three all hybrid a hybrid system in it enables that he was the flywheel which will yeah formula developed that this race call with these flywheel literally where the passenger seat it'd be a nine hundred eleven seems incredibly dangerous either like they're like no. It's going to be fine. This is never going to come apart and they race in the twenty four hour Newburgh. This was all about US collectively electing the energy keeping this thing spinning and then deploying it and in some ways the lamborghinis not not dissimilar so you not charging it up and it sitting in a battery days. This is all about short shot hips doc celebration and improving efficiency it also look I mean the problem with McCain is and they do now. They make all the money from the special editions and this one. I actually Kinda liked it. It was pretty cool pretty good color choice like in the photos had sort of a more of an army greenish kind of but not matt. I don't think it was mad. I think it was a shiny as a sort of Kalki killer and yeah I liked it. I mean it's I get a bit bored of it. After a while you know you just like another Lamborghini specialization but I know that sounds silly but it's kind of an RND. This is a play for them. This trickle down like does Audi and Volkswagen eventually use capacitors for something instead of all all batteries or some combination of it. It's gotTA BE Super. Expensive says the only way to do it is a three million dollar Lamborghini that they're gonNa make twenty over ten knows what Lamborghinis Lamborghini is less than a hundred definitely but yeah I can see this coming. Everybody has to adjust to the kind of new world and this is an an interesting way of doing it. You know you could see coming onto something like a Audi r eight or something like that in the future yeah trickle dominates. No you're not gonNA find on. We still haven't already yeah we do okay. My neighbor has one. Actually you wake up every morning yeah. I'm sure the baby loves I love it. It's kind of like subliminal subliminal. You're like Oh. I like that. Maybe it's like I don't know feed me okay. What else is going on at at Frankfurt or now that we're getting after Frankfort happened? We're going to start rolling. You know we got sema show coming up but then. La Auto show is La auto show is going to be you know I mean fewer and fewer I guess debuts are happening at these do things especially in the higher end brands. Were starting to see I mean you you mentioned Lamborghini of course we're we're seeing the BMW eight fifty goto quail for the first first time and we're starting to see you know Bentley's Gt end up at at a media preview or pebble beach instead of L. A. Auto show you know stuff. I like that I think is actually getting pretty. If you are going to be there but I'm I'm kind of There's a there's a handful of things that I kind of know about which we about to get close to. La is going to be pretty big this year. I mean this is a huge busy time. I was looking at like wear all guys all this this. We we have people in Australia. We have two people in Europe drives you down on the AMEX staff half. We have somebody on the on the Moab the garage two why AM I. Why am I saying you're sitting here so we have? We have people all over the place. That is a huge time Alana. This show was driving another film. That's out right now. He's the escape film before the scape she came but yeah pretty impressed with the design is influenced by the Ford. Gt and then I winter and I was like what what part this little silver bit on the phone. I was like Oh yeah it really screams for gt when you guys think of the of the escape vehicle for them. It's a it's replacing the small sedan right hugely important vehicle when you think a raffle sells four hundred thousand a year see Avi. He's not too far behind and Ford's traditionally struggled in that market last escape. We didn't think much oliver neither the conceive not too. Many people bought it. It's an interesting because it's not it's almost like a kind of a true crossover in that. It's Kinda Half Half Sadan half SUV. It's not too overtly SUV so yeah I mean I think it's come back pretty pretty impressed by okay. We'll bring it in for a group test and put it against the vs and stuff but it's a big vehicle for Ford and you know when you look at the market now what afford I she didn't this. This has to work for them because the CO sport is is is about nothing so this becomes absolutely critical they can't just keep selling trucks for forever and a day and you look at somebody like Toyota and the breadth of their range and just how many vehicle they covering all the bases and forty is making a pretty big bet that you build truck she billed as she vs and like when you his commitment to stop doing cars in the small cars you you've got a head. You've gotta hit it out of the park with your small all us. Uv You do and I think the problem is from a communication point of view saying you stop people don't in the consciousness think about our research shows people don't think about calls. SUV's and every thing by those teams SUV's a call so when you came out and said we're not doing cars ause if he's like what what what what do you that much different. We're making the same thing but it late Soleil yeah. That's really about it and that's kind of what the escape is right yeah yeah that's really a focus with a little bit of a lift gate on it but it but look our roads. Just keep getting worse and worse. Nobody's he's fixing those things so why not get a little bit more clearance and a little more suspension travel makes us hearing something the other day that calls a now design full China First America second and then Europe after that yeah which is fine if you live in China and or the American because he's just getting bigger and bigger and particularly wider and wider but you know the scale of cars. There's no you know if you if you got a Europe now with roads and narrow. It's a nightmare over here. We're just GONNA have to accept city planning and everything how's that causes getting smaller yeah all right anything else. Go down there always so much going on ticon tycoon.

What is Wanda's Porsche Ninety two turbo ninety two turbo right nine six four ninety six Bill Hicks for you is it to do yeah? That's a nice car. It's lovely co Yeah Yeah. That's terrible. Though you know yeah I a purist by any stretch imagination as much as I'd like to be in the Porsche area but it seems to me that this is one of the last ones that the purists are docking over Why I I don't know but that was for you can tell me that's probably air cool versus liquid cool yeah? It's kind of kind of the end of the air cooled nine nine three which is the one after bill's car. That's yeah that was the last of the cooled and that's why you buy it because he was at the end of an era and the end of the essence of nine eleven but we should dance your friends question. We've forgotten all about about it. Okay yes so the question was the new nine eleven. I haven't driven it yet. We've seen that the auto show you've you've had some time with it now and your staff has as well so the question is off all of your people all of your Oliver People Right. Haven't they driven it yeah. You're you're people yeah yeah your staff yeah. I don't know why it was so funny. Like you have a staff way anyway. We have thirty four people in the same Edmund it. We got Chris. We've got Chris you've got thirty. Four people okay all right so new nine eleven they don't make an a target but they make a coupe and a convertible. Okay does Tyson go for the Targa or is the new which is last year's I guess or is the new nine eleven good enough that he should just get the new nine eleven whether it be coupe or convertible or whatever so I'm GonNa Answer some roundabout way if you if I was buying one like a new nine eleven now yeah I would buy what they call a nine nine one point one which is the first generation nine which is the last generation last body shape of the nine eleven to two on the one that's effectively still on sale as a target but but before they went to the turbo engine so nine one point one which is a last naturally aspirated okay if you can get a GTS stick nine nine one point one fabulous Populus but let's say there's not on the lots and you're GONNA go out and lease a car. That's right okay safe leasing new. I think he's personal preference nine to the new. One is a much nicer interior. That's the big change yeah. the interior is is is terrific an an a step forward and they will do talk about a year away right I would say look at the deal because they might find that nine to literally hitting showrooms about now so those there'll be no deals on the nine to maybe the dealers go to bunched Utah Nine. I won't talk as and stuff lying around. Maybe maybe there's a deal to be done so I I would look at what the economics comics look like but you not going to buy the Dogar and feel like it's you're you're. You're driving a car. It's still fabulous thing new on great interior terrier run but again he's also the price hike as well. I mean we the call we drove the nine to choose a Carreira s coupe with options that you would want nothing really on it that you would say. That's a bit superfluous. If one hundred and forty GRANDPA said it's got to be a hundred and forty eight hundred fifty 'cause we were talking earlier but there's a lot of stuff with Porsche that you want so radio radio staring. That's terribly again. Just from general maneuverability you know the the whole Sport Tronoh the righted suspension with just a dime for something else all these things actually. I think that you would want the big thing you know. A lot of the press caused the test of all the time have they Stefani because police you want to show the car off such a quite hard to get hold of a kind of bog standard hundred Jordan fifteen thousand nine eleven exists caress yeah first of all portion sell those. They want you to load up like you said it's all it's all so. Is there any real L. discernible difference between the new one nine nine two in the previous when he said the interior nicer is is there any real comfort driveability ability is is it. It's it's I mean. It's like a little nine eleven's. It's a it's an evolution obviously the stylings different particularly the rear That's a bit of a there's nothing that stands out. There's nothing you said Oh listen the previous one the one thing that bugged us every day. Was this or this or this and it just never really we had that I mean it's not really common with Porsche nine. Seven there was issues with the engine you sake by the engine but if but not really I mean it's an evolution the engines to the engine was kind of like carryover and things like that so and particularly if using things like apple carplay one of the things that dates pretty quickly now as a whole infotainment and bushes right it all of this but but if you get it plug in your iphone and use Copley something that doesn't bother you either yeah all right so you either you either are in love with the new interior or you're not or you go for the best deal and those are pretty much only to deciding factor is the one that you want if you fall in love with a dog and I agree. I mean the talker odds white while you don't want it but everything's everything's fine but it's funny and it looks good and it's kind of like to talk yeah. It's it's a cool car was just driving. What I was not driving is driving next one on the way here and I was just like title Ix Sharp Yeah Yeah and I love the rear glass it just it's so much more visibility and that's a lot of curve?

I've got no problem with that sure no. They're going to get him at a press fleet out here. We're going to ask to drive on him. I'm going to ask them to send me the one with all the stuff on it because I okay and how about the GT Claire Come on Oh we it's a big fan of the DT right right. I was having some twitter chat with a hundred guys guys in europe-africa drive it drive it in down in France and it's actually getting being pretty not getting great price because it's a sort of it's a bit of a nothing car in that. He's not a real. Gt in that it's not a Bentley or even like a nine eleven to buy some outcome on the nine eleven gt's but it's it's it's still essentially a mid engined supercar with a slightly bigger trunk and I think you're going to clarify exactly what and I thought any but if McLaren had just come out in my in my view McLaren had just come out and said what we're going to build a supercar with a big trunk that you can actually use for like a week way yeah then I think people said Okay I get that the fact that they've come out and said this is a you know a mdjt or wrap Bentley continental rival just sort of muddies the muddies the waters a bit and it's just not that car okay so what what's the problem the naming convention mentioned you're you're expecting a grand touring car Allah Continental. Gt Bentley or or are you expecting more are from the car like let's let's say it wasn't called the McLaren. Gt doesn't sound as if it's classified as true gt so so it's false advertising. It's Ki- it's kind of like another McLaren. I mean the problem mccaren Harvey's though wedded to this idea that you have a carbon monocoque mid engined and supercar so anything around that is a nuance you know they're not GonNa do an SUV affront Njit so what they've done is. How can we squeezed another car out of there so let's make a bit bigger? Let's have a cellphone. Let's have a big trunk. Make it a bit more usable and you know it's it's still gotta get really down into the car. It's still pretty compromised in some ways. It is a supercar with a big trunk. It's in order. Tour mcclair loves lightweight and they didn't want to call this a McLaren five seventy heavy exactly I live I live the league t gt either that's just got a slightly different different trump so yeah. It's the first they've done in a while while they are actually getting you you know some some negative kickback on it and this is based off of what like six fifty five seventy were. What does this sort of? This is based off the five uh it's five seven. Do you know what I can't remember because it's different between the five seventy in the seven twenty and I can't remember exactly seven twenty because the seven twenty years he's twice the cost of and so I think they have to base it all on the seven twenty. Has You know whatever the dynamic the sway bar system like. It doesn't have sway bars. It has like hydraulics or something to talk BITs universal between the two resigned wide and also the only though no this has a different carbon tub to the to the function of bit more expensive but the other thing about these. Gt Is it's only a two seater now. We all know that you can't really well you. Might you might get mad in the back of nine eleven but you're going to get better you call them. You constantly the one thing about what happens in nine eleven if you go away for we throw the bags in the back. McLaren hasn't got that so you know it's not that's another thing that could possibly be like a true. Gt without even have like the little tiny jump seats in the back like nine eleven or or a handful of the sports sports cars that are out there doing that okay so let's take gt away from it and then where does this fall in the McLaren lineup is this. Is this the car you want if you want maybe but more leather or better stereo or more trunk space says it is it. Is it more luxurious does it does it have an audience or or do you just skip the GT and get the five seventy six fifty year. I I have a lot to do with them decision. Yeah I mean I think you look at these car and again it sitting sitting them between five seventy seven twenties as and stuff. I think you look at this because this car starts at like to some too long. It's on the lower end of seven seven twenty twenty. You're going to spend four hundred thousand dollars exactly so it's between the two it's it's a bit more usable than a than a five seventy but a lot not a lot more I mean and this is a problem who is who is going to buy you buy it because you think maybe if you're gonNA use the everyday then but who does that. You know maybe saying Gee. I ain't gonNA try and use this every day. It makes it makes sense but it's a bit neither Fisher file. It doesn't really doesn't really deliver on its promise yeah okay. Let's stay along the lines of anticipation. How about the new Porsche the tight on?

I mean obviously you got the difference between the media attendance and then the public attendance I mean I mean if you look at the world now. Frankfurt is right up there Frankfurt Geneva Detroit Waning Detroit's candidate. Mary can show now global show. LA's arguably on the rise because that's where the money is and whether the whether Mulcahy's particular you look brand New York does okay but they are then Shanghai in China Tokyo is not really happening in the the same way anymore so but I thought maybe has downsized a little but maybe not in the public way but as far as as far as manufacturers like Ferrari doesn't go there anymore like all the exotics like Aston Martin and stuff. They're all like represented by ALPA like Galvin silver a room appear GALP and motors. We have Calvin Ford they have asked Martin they have a bunch of dealers. They kinda like take over and represent for all of the. I don't think Ferrari's been there in years. It's the bit it depends on. What also people have got you know launching and it's kind of interesting is look Jaguar Landrover that moment doesn't you know is having a tough time? Globally sales down prophets are non existent at the moment and they always said we're not gonNA launch your car at an auto show ever again. You WanNa create our own buzzer annoys when they hit our times that he lost the defender at Frankford apologized got everybody that you know global media flies in as I did. I must let you on the ground in in your thirty six hours which was kind of crazy but also you go to bake alleged public going going through and there was the defender finally finally revealed after years of I mean it's the first all new defenses what nine forty eight eighty two we've been talking about this for years okay so the the defender is interesting because like you said it's it's wildly popular. It's a fan Dan favorite. You're starting to see them. Show up at at car auctions all around the world are starting to pull some good money. Never changed changed whereas I don't know the g wagon has changed a little bit and I hate that God damn thing by the way I kind of like watch your language allister's. Sorry sorry buddy. I hate that fricking thing the bloody thing probably expert okay. I don't know I don't know I guess what bloodies okay okay. Blood is okay for a guy who's been in the ring so many act guys handcuff me over here but I okay what are your impressions of the defender. What what do we know we know there was a four door to probably a handful of different variations of it is it? Is it good to we want it. We like it. Does the Land Rover need it desperately need. That's for sure it was interesting. They said we get shots footage of these things under embargo well ahead of the the unveil so that we can start to prepare the content and stuff and these pitches arrived in the office and we all gathered around look today and he looked really soft and toilet and we really appointed and yet when we went to Frankford she had a look at it in the metal and you start to see the scale of it it it achieved so much better so and part of the problem was you see this with a lot of brands now you be in this world of Photoshop and everything else the photographs get so retouched with Sosa Kinda they look like CGI yeah and this thing just ended up looking really soft soft but when you see images of out in the desert covered into doing what a defender shirt it looks so much better and she when you see it in real life the you know the proportions windscale of the vehicle and interesting I had a I look at about five years ago in a new back in the UK and then there was would he be sort of on the Range Rover sport or range of platform and I was kind of expecting it to be eighty thousand dollars plus an actually because they build a new factory in Slovakia. They've been able to develop a whole new platform this vehicle and he's going to be sort of fifty to eighty thousand dollars now. What do you think that we bought on the on the Edmonds Fleet was just over sixty for a rubicon because it's going to be a little bit more than a than a wrangler but a g wagon these water one hundred thirty one hundred and fifty so it's an interesting place in the market and and I like it I am the the the two door is the one that looks the coolest but like the wrong? It looks coolest. Everybody's GonNa talk about that but I think people will buy the full door and the some really recall details as well that you can get in the front line defenders. You actually get three people and there's a little patchy seat in the middle which is kind of Nice on the on the three so you can have the three door sorta to door to door where we can see six all you can have a folder which can seat seven so there's a lot of flexibility likes ability. There's probably a truck somewhere down the line I think it's going to be on sale. We're GONNA drive it next year. It'll be at the Elliott Osho this November. What's the you know? The power plant over here will be will be gas. There will probably be in time plug in plug in hybrid so the three liter sakes that they have in yeah having the rest of the rest of their range but they've actually I think bringing it. This price point and I sit on the ground is kind of surprised that it was the more and I kind of got a few so that worried glances novus it'd be unloaded until debate how you pitch this seeing the pictures of this yet the new the the defender to know what's interesting because it the timing of this might be good with a Bronco coming out and that's so highly highly anticipated that maybe landrover sort of beating them to the punch by having by having the defender out there I I was gonna say the defender could probably be the luxury version of the Bronco coming out but I don't know in that price range that you're talking about I don't I don't. I don't know that it's that much more broncos product you what you asked me. That's a fantastic idea because if it wasn't near that try range that market would not have even considered it before. Braga is a competitor that's right now. They're going to have a range of options to trick etc cannot snorkels and everything else and so they'll be ways of scaling up but when he thing won't pay me as soon as you got a few more power base to jeep or something you easily get there and this is you. It's new it's different. There's probably GonNa be let's say a ten thousand dollar difference between the defender and the Bronco. Let's say look at years back when the when the defender came out you know only the only the rich and famous were driving them much yeah and I think it'd be interesting over here yeah because oversee particularly in the UK or in Europe defenders beat on sale up until a couple of years ago I owned image for for showtime and how many it's it's always been a bit of a car over here here. Of course it's either wealthy people in Venice Beach California joking around in the money. It's it's a different crowd. It'd be interesting to see how much Kapila they can. They can generate because they doesn't have the awareness that it does in Europe right like they're starting to show up at at our M gooding auctions. They're not they're not showing up on US his car lots defenders are starting to get up there and maybe the clientele the more affluent ownership out here in the US might have to do with the the cost of ownership. I can't imagine it's inexpensive to keep that thing running in top condition all the time it might be a little fidgety for lack of better word. I think by them changing the price point they opened up a completely different sector. I think it's going to change the change the taking the identity of them. I think I mean for the better he asked me. Yeah interesting talking to you guys because you guys says a fashion accessory over here in Europe well we do and we don't my brothers had one for fifteen years. We drive the dog crap out making so as far as you know for him. It's not a fashion accessory but for the most was part yes you're you're correct but you know for the purists that take it out and do what it's it's. It's it's built to do you know they they love that vehicle go on now it's GonNa Oakland that up that vehicle up to a whole different sector you know what that price and in the UK even up until the final days it was although it became a bit trendy it was still the choice of the former you know it was a utilitarian tool used on farms particularly in the UK but also across Europe so they need to try and keep ah I mean that audience he's not particularly Welzer by this vehicle. Yes you can have things like hose out interiors and the but it's not so much here. WE'RE NOT GONNA get a super stripped-down models. It just doesn't seem like that's that's the audience out here. Plus Land Rover is trying to be still more of a luxury brand in the US than it is to be sort of the all encompassing brand. Maybe it is in other parts of the world. I think what they're after is is is bill describing so somebody with the county can have like a rubber verizon interior that you can wash out and things like that and so it's it's people who they want to use the vehicle but it's people who also want to be comfortable when they drive it on the road and everything else 'cause I've done thousands of miles in the defender and trust me. It's not comfortable and there's no place that has been but it's worthy but it's but you put yourself through it because it's such a cool and capable vehicle yeah. It's the sort of thing that you buy because you think this is going to be so cool then then you after about a thousand miles of driving audrey realizes the really bad right like bill like you say about the g wagon birthright the defender you're looking on it. It's supposed to have of the the.

"frankfurt" Discussed on Freakonomics
"Berlin while still easily the biggest city in germany has only the fourth and seventh busiest airports which combined have only about half the traffic of frankfurt germany's the only european country were the country's main air hub is not on the largest city so you can sort of see the unusualness of the german situation so if division had happened it would be very difficult to belief the germany's main air hub today wouldn't be in berlin the air traffic stories compelling because the data are so definitive in other cases it's hard for an economist like sturm to make such a clean comparison between cities but he argues the anecdotal evidence at least suggests that the air traffic data are part of a larger economic pattern if you look at for example at munich both 'alliance of germany's biggest insurance company and siemens its biggest manufacturing conglomerate moved to munich in response to division similarly the banking sector you know left berlin and migrated to frankfurt with prior to the war was sort of a secondary banking center similarly publishing when to hamburg and we can continue in this way in other words one indirect consequence of the war and the resultant political division was it the german economy became more decentralised germany has a very unusual economic geography or he is very unusual distribution of economic activity in space too much more decentralised country then some other european countries such as uk or france or or even spain were economic activity seems to be highly agglomerated in one or two leading centers in contrast in germany you have a number of sort of midsize towns that have very vibrant economic structures such as munich frankfurt.
