Justice department sues Google
"So, there's. A huge fight. That is underway in the United States. Towards technology companies and Google is the newest one in the dock. Justice Department has filed a massive antitrust lawsuit against Google, it's to be alive state involvement in this as well. And the reason that the feds are going after. Google. and May, in fact, go after facebook. Apple Amazon and they'll be various actions against these four companies. Around the world because these are all firms that do business around the world that are all under a microscope because in various phases of the digital economy. They have become either dominant or to the point that they're sucking all the oxygen. Out of the possibility of competition. So Google. Has Been Sued because of their power and search. Their power in advertising. Their power with the ANDROID operating system that even though apple is powerful in the United States. With iphones around the World Google's ANDROID system controls I think is eighty eight percent of the market. And so the idea is that Google having so much power I mean even Google Chrome. Chrome is gigantic. One estimate I saw recently is a bay control, three recorders of the browsers in the world and. You've got youtube that dominates video online think about Google maps how nothing really has challenged the only thing that really did was ways. So Google went and bought that. So. The courts are going to. Deal with this here in the United States in Europe and around the world. With. Google's issues we've talked about apple lots of legal action against apple around the world about how they control their store However, apple uses I message to create a network effect. Amazon Conspiring against its own marketplace sellers, figuring out what cells and then copying their products allegedly putting them. Up in competition with people who were under their own roof as part of the Amazon marketplace and then facebook. the big mistake if you think of it in terms of antitrust terms was facebook being able to acquire instagram and what's WHATSAPP and be able to use those for what is referred to as network effect as well, and that is an issue with all four these. If you go way back though. And this is why it's not clear the role of government antitrust here or overseas with any of these behemoths. I remember way back. WAY BACK MACHINE WHEN IBM was considered to be. By many people be most evil enterprise in the world. And had a monopoly on so much of computing power in the world. And the government filed this it was landmark legendary antitrust action against IBM. The. Basically fizzled into nothingness because marketplace. Eventually, took care of. Then later, government actions against Microsoft for market dominance again. And the reality is. You don't know with technology firms win out of nowhere somebody comes up with a better way to do things that takes what looks like an impenetrable fortress. What's known as network effect? And blows it to Smithereens or reduces its power in the marketplace. So I don't know. How all this will work out with all the various governmental and legal actions around the world. But it is true that at this moment, these four companies have too much power in the sectors that they're in. The question is does the marketplace take care of it and a reasonable period of time or is there really a role for government? I'm not smart enough to tell you and I know when I railed against the Apple. The whole. APP store thing with Apple. With. Apple extracting this mandatory toll bridge from other APPS including those it directly competes with taking thirty percent of the action. There's no negotiation. Apple imposes the terms that I was very upset about that and that I thought it was an antitrust violation and then there were so many posts to Clark stinks at Clark Dot Com Slash Clark stinks wait. Where's Free Market Clark here And the truth is. I don't really know I mean if you're looking for me for. Yes. Google is doing evil stuff and must be punished or any of these technology behemoths. I don't know if it's best to let the marketplace discipline them or if there is a role for antitrust law and ultimately the courts will argue about this for a long long time.
Has Scott Morrison spent too much?
"Me. If you've already heard me mention this but one of my favorite quotes during the covid crosses a pdf the guardian. This is the British lift wing newspaper. Now, this was the heart of the coronavirus crisis. It would have been light much quote just as there are no atheists on a sinking ship, there are no free marketeers during a pandemic. Now, the author of that apt quote Jonathan Freedland, he was referring to the audio logical revolution within the British conservative. Party. Now, according to Freedland Boris Johnson's his have defied four decades of thatcherism small-state free-market, thinking I to spend staggering amounts of money and then subsidizing the wages of workers. Could the same thing be said about Australia's Liberal Party they're the party of Howard and Costello now embraces big-spending high deficit government interventionism. And is a permanent state of affairs poor kilis editor at large of the Australian US pipe and Judas Brit is emeritus professor of politics at Latrobe University poll judy welcome back to the show. Hristo Paul, you've written to calms about this subject in the past week, summarize your faces. Will Martha is that all parties and all governments have to respond to the times in which they find themselves on display in Australia. Now we face an extraordinary economic crisis and the response reveals the nature of Scott Morrison, his prime minister and the Mars and government. So Morrison, not responding as Liberal Party progressive or is it Liberal Party conservative? He doesn't see himself in those terms his responses pragmatic selects able and practical. He's not inhibited by former policy and audio logical icons of the Liberal Party. Say What we say is the government has abandoned the long-term syllabus aspirations. It's A. Big Spending government it's a government government intervention focused on Keynesian demand management. It does however on the Liberal Party tradition of tax cuts will see next week. So it's prepared to regulate or deregulate according to the situation according to what's required. So to sum up say that Morrison wants to be defined by results and outcomes not philosophical principle. Okay. You mentioned the tax cuts leaving that aside traditional liberal governments are about balancing the books Paul, how much an as do you think aries in the Liberal Party about in the parliament and outside about these handouts to preserve jobs and livelihoods? Are. I. Don't think there's much on these at all OPTIMA and Tom. and. A couple of reasons for this if there is to be on, he's He's will come through the down the track, but essentially what's happening here is to govern is following the Orthodoxy or what you might call the new Orthodoxy in terms of meeting the financial and economic crisis. So roller response is sort of radical. It's also conventional. The official family is working together very closely. The Treasury the Reserve Bank, what the government is doing is essentially supported by private-sector economists. It's in law and with Patrick amended by the VCD and the IMF not the cabinet is very nodded, the Prime Minister and the treasurer are working very closely together so far the results look good. I think the Overwhelming sentiment on the back benches. Support, the government strategy in the hope that this gives individual employees, the chance of actually being reelected and my will give the government the chance of being reelected. So the reinvention of Australian liberalism is on full display with this budget judith break you agree with Paul Kelly about the the audio logical significance of these changes but actually think the government had much choice in that sense I do think we can see something audio logical preferences in a couple of the policies poor mentioned the tax cuts they've chosen tax cuts over for example, committing to a permanent increase in new act now co Job Seca. They've also, for example, if we look at the way, they wanted to stimulate the housing market. They've gone for giving money to individual owners rather than, for example, embarking on a social housing project. So I think in some of the means, we can still see some of the ideological preferences of the Patty. One of the things I've wondered when I've been watching the events unfold. If Labor had won the last election was in government with the Liberals have supported the same levels of spending or would they have if you like stayed in the sort of ideological bunker bean and attacked the blow out of the deficit? I mean, it's a hypothetical. In some ways I think we've been very lucky that it's been the liberals and the coalition in government because they can sense being able to Ghana much more support. I, think than I have been able to do for the same levels of spending but isn't cameras response to the COVID crosses more consistent with other Western governments during the pandemic Judy. Yes that's what I think. I had much option but the question is if the coalition of being opposition, would they have supported a Labor government going? You've written a lot about this have many many decades about when orthodoxies or overturned. It's usually bipartisan is that you'll since if the coalition cypher argument's sake wherein opposition I would have gone along with this big spending interventionism. Look are essentially agree with what Judy's said about this I think in a sense we're. Fortunate, if you liked that the coalition's in government because it's taken all the big spending decisions. and. Lay has been prepared to go along with back. In fact, it's argued that there should be even more spending. So in that sense, we've had a broad degree of thought-out ship within the economic framework. It is hot the typical of course to tron speculate about what would have happened if alive had been in office doing this but I do think that the coalition in opposition would have been tempted to make caught a lot of criticisms and to suggest that the spending had gone too far. There's a big difference for party thing in government managing across and being an opposition. Cape with this theme of a political realignment among center right parties around the Western world. If you think about Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen, he tapped into widespread anxieties. America's rust belt. What can class constituencies? Boris Johnson showed last December, he resonated with traditional British Library voters in the Midlands and northern England. Judy. Do you think that Morrison in a wise doing the same thing here in Australia? Now, I think they're very different sorts of crises. I mean the pandemic is an external. Crisis, it's not being caused by politics in any way it's not back nationalism versus globalism or any of those things, and so I don't agree with that. I agree with what Paul was saying earlier that Morrison's shown himself to be pragmatic and quick footed in this and I think we're lucky for that. But I I don't think that this lines up with bricks and with trump's appeal to the rest spilled poor Kelly. Well I think conservatism is changing if you look at. America Britain Australia and there's not a dopey getting very significant changes into servitude. Thought. Different changes argued very strongly that there are very substantial differences between Donald Trump and Scott Morrison. I think people who argue that. Morrison is a pilot version of DONALD TRUMP MAUREEN DOWD in the New York Times by the way, but go on. I think. I think turned him mentally misunderstand the situation I. Think the change in conservatism is very dramatic in the United States. If you'd like because we've got the transition from Ronald, Reagan who a generation ago was the great conservative champion, and now we have Donald Trump, who if you lock is a populist conservative? And that transformation is simply enormous install ending content I mean trump violates all the virtues of conservatism in terms of restraint prudence disciplined respect. Regard for the political system, he thrives on division. So he likes all the traditional conservative norms, and then when looks at his policies. Well he's sabotage the global trading system. He's an arch protectionist. He's engaged in this trade war with China he's appraised dictators and suspicious about. So I guess one of the Fundamental Christians here is the extent to which trump is an aberration. And the extent to which post trump American concert is we'll have to try and create a new position cognisant of the damage that trump has done to the traditional Republican Party
Egg Prices Skyrocket During The Pandemic
"It egg gree GIs or just good egg economics. The price of eggs skyrocketed during the pandemic, and now some states are suing AEG companies for price gouging Stacy Vanik, Smith and Cardiff Garcia from our daily economics podcast, the indicator from Planet money, tell us exactly what's going on with egg prices. We eat a lot of eggs in this country. The average American eats almost an egg a day and during the pandemic, we really got excited about eggs. Grocery stores were ordering six times more eggs than normal and a lot of store shelves were still empty. Yes, so demand for eggs went crazy and the supply could not increase right away because there are only so many egg laying hens in the US and you know that in prison, a man will lead to a rise in prices. That is David Ortega. He is a food economist at Michigan State University, and David says it's all about supply and demand. A spike in demand, plus a fixed supply pushes up the price. And the price went way up nearly 200% in March, and now a bunch of states have responded by suing AEG companies for price gouging. Thes states included Texas, West Virginia in Minnesota, and they also included New York, where the attorney general accused egg company Hillandale Farms of taking in $4 million in revenues from overcharging people for eggs and with egg prices. Here is where things get tricky. I mean, Did eight companies commit a crime by charging more for eggs. Were they just being good free market citizens? Also challenging really happens when you purposefully set the price of a commodity, you know, significantly above the traditional price level that incorporates costs and other forces, David says. Part of the issue here is that costs went up for eight companies to labor transports. Supplies were all hard to get and often expensive in the early days of the pandemic, But did those costs go up? By three or 400%, like their prices did that is the question being hashed out in courts now, and it's kind of complicated and part of the issue. Here, of course, is the egg itself, right? I mean, if I scream prices or caviar prices or wine prices or something like that went up by 200%. It probably wouldn't be a legal issue a price gouging accusation. But the idea here is that eggs are a staple in a stable that really vulnerable people count on, especially in a crisis, and this idea that companies were profiting off of vulnerable people in time of crisis makes it seem kind of wrong, David says. It's especially tricky here because there was a time when pretty much all food prices were going up. In fact, between March and April, food prices saw their biggest jump in 46 years. But you know it's really difficult to draw the line as to what is a appropriate price response due to the shock versus what isthe sort of This type of illicit behavior that's trying to take advantage of the situation, David says. We will have to see what the courts decide about egg prices and whether it was price gouging or just, you know, faire economics or maybe unfair but legal economics. Stacy Vanek, Smith.

Opportunity Through Persistence with Cordia Harrington
"Hey, guys you know what I love about America and the free, market? Enterprise. What I love about business leadership is what I love about Andre Leadership and that is that we believe that great success can come from humble beginnings. You guys know this. You know in our country, it doesn't matter what your skin color is. It doesn't matter if you're male or female. All. It takes passion drive and a desire to make a difference. You may say why don't have enough money to get started? I don't have enough education I. Don't know the right people guys. I'm telling you those are all just excuses. From the Ramsey network this is the entreleadership podcast where we help business leaders, themselves, their teams and their prophets. I'm your host Daniels Hardy and my guest today is Accordia Harrington she's the founder and CEO of the Bakery Coast today they've got multiple plants and customers around the world including. McDonald's Oh Charlie's pretty big deal. But. It didn't start out that way and like a lot of great success stories that start with really humble beginnings accordions is really not that much different. And all began for her and a small town in Arkansas. I started my first business in Russellville. Arkansas. Do you know where that is i? Know Arkansas. Russell. Okay. Well. Down a beautiful town on a lake about halfway between Little Rock and Fort Smith and my first business was a real estate company concept one realtors and foretelling we use tweet emblem on a real estate vine. Yeah. Little. Did I know? And that began. With the good fortune of having bartered for office space from a doctor that had a big empty building and least my chairs and my desk three dollars a month for the deaths and a dollar fifty a month for the chairs and I was in the real estate business us all five hundred, eighty, seven dollars to buy plywood signs to put in front yards and it grew and it was so much fun. The ladies that I hired. We were the first off you mill business in Arkansas, and the men bankers would literally come by to see what we're doing. And we would stage houses. That's before we knew what staging was and we would try to rearrange the furniture in houses so that they showed the best and it took off so you're showcasing the houses to make them look great. That's very common these days. What was it uncommon? Totally people thought we were so weird to come into their house and stake some pictures down in rearrange the furniture Abed we were trying to give them the best opportunity to get their house sold. You know back then houses there eighteen hundred square foot house two car garage on an acre of land with a lakeview guess how much it was I can't even guess forty thousand, you're really cloak. Thousand. and. So you know and there were lots of properties available and not very many buyers. So it was it was an interesting business in the only reason. I. Got Out of it. I. Loved it. I loved working with the families helping a find a home bettering their life but the people that moved to town the For your family bought the local McDonalds. Daniel. But when I grew up, I didn't know you could own a McDonald's and when I found out, they owned it. I was like all. That is cool. They lived on a Beautiful Lake House they drove a Mercedes than they had every weekend with their family. So for me I thought Gosh this would be so great. They didn't like living in Russellville they wanted to move I love Libyan Russellville K- I can imagine a real estate you weren't necessarily your weekends with wasn't a thing and you're just grinding all the time. So was it was the opportunity for flexibility? What was what like when you kind of had the dream I mean Mercedes is nice but was like drawing you to them exactly. Well, unfortunately, I went through a divorce and my children were one three and five when I did that in having a job that I could be off on the nights and weekends was very motivating. I was driven to spend more time with my kids and yeah I, mean the perks looked nice to but are really wanted quality time with my. Kids an and in as much as I love real estate, it was just impossible. So many business owners I talk to really the family is the reason that they get into owning their own business. You know maybe they work at a corporation at its ninety hours a week than ever see their family, even the money can be nice but I mean, you look up and your kids are. Little and they start growing and you go I'm missing out on their lives. Curious to hear from you how you continue to keep that value as the business grows and scales because there's a little bit of the grass is greener on the other side. If I have my own business, I'll have the flexibility and the autonomy, and it can also be that same dragon that takes you away. From your family if you're not careful yet you're totally right and I haven't the greatest respect for restaurant owners because when I did buy my first McDonald's we were unable to stay in. Russellville that just wasn't the way McDonalds did things and that was offered the chance to buy the EFFINGHAM. Illinois McDonald's where that is I know effingham driven through there once okay. Most people have driven by. Again, a big town of ten thousand people and we had an interstate McDonald's that I purchased. At the time I paid a very high price for it. This was nineteen, eighty, nine paid a million, six, fifty, four it and I had to figure out how to grow sales in order to make that Walker, twenty, seven, thousand, dollar a month payment. And the only way to do it was to drive more sales as you know, that's the way it. But if you'RE GONNA ten thousand, how do you find more people? Yeah. I can imagine I mean the supply and demand kicks in a real way. What was it? An existing store was this new store? It was an existing store in the man was retiring and it was a good store because it was in the middle point if you're driving from St Louis Chicago. Great Place to stop get a bite to eat go to the restroom. Great Location. But again, how do you grow the sales and so? Back and that day an eighty nine we didn't have cell phones, but we did have CB radios. So we began to have some fun get on the radio and go hey, good buddy. If you're driving a bus stop by, we'll give you a free meal if you bring your bus

Young conservative speaks up about the climate
"Twenty four year old tyler. Gillett. Of Ohio has cared about environmental issues since he was young and growing up, he says that sometimes made him feel like an outcast among his conservative peers everyone would call me a liberal or tree hugger or a Hippie I. Thought I was the only one out there that hey, conservative values cared about the environment. But Gillette was not deterred in college. He studied environmental science and he began advocating for free market solutions to climate change for example, by writing an op-ed for a student publication. That op. Ed. Caught the attention of national climate organizers. Soon, the leaders of Republicans in a group that advocates for market-driven climate solutions invited Gillette to join their group. And the citizens climate lobby asked him to come to a lobbying event in DC Gillette says meeting with legislators for the first time was empowering. I felt like I was participating in democracy united playing an actual roll. Through these experiences Gillette says, he's found other like-minded conservatives. Now I know that I'm not the only one that sees things the way that I do. So he encourages others to speak up to.
Kurt Andersen on Evil Geniuses
"Kurt Anderson joins us. Now he has a new book out. It's called evil geniuses the unmaking of America a recent history. Kurt thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. All right. So your previous spoke to this was fantasy land and I feel like there's a connection where did you leave off in that book and pick up in your new book? There's definitely a connection and they really amount to kind of a two volume history of the screwing up of America the last half century. Fantasyland was about how this chronic condition in America of the weakness for the irrational and magical thinking in entertaining lies. Turned into this acute illness after having been a centuries long chronic illness, the last fifty years, and thus the President United States as the poster boy for that. This is a different story. This is not a spontaneous organic. Problem that I'm talking about here. About the Paradigm. Shift and hijacking of our political economy that happened starting fifty years ago by who what the people I call. Evil Jesus, it's this very rational, very specific, very strategic, long war that had the effect in a hundred different ways of making the majority of Americans worse off. So if fantasy land talked about America has propensity to believe in nonsensical illogical things. It sounds like evil genius is this kind of why the efforts that were made on the part of institutions and individuals that have led to that kind of thinking. No actually not that led to that kind of thinking that. It's a wholly different thing. What would i. have having a Neo Liberal Clinton Centrist Democrat all of my adult life partners may culpa for simply being. Oblivious to what the economic right was doing. So these. Are People of the economic rights. The coax are the most obvious buzzword way of saying that and how they manipulated and used and changed through all of these different means the way we thought society. The economy should be since the new deal they used the fantasies and delusions and. All that of their political allies on the right to enable their real project, which is to make Americans think the government has no role in anything involving the free market when you are working on fantasy land, did you know that you were going to be writing the second kind of companion book? I really didn't know that it was late in the game working were. I realized wait I am kind of telling half the story here. There is this other story that isn't about look at Wacky America. We've always been wacky for four hundred years and believed all kinds of nonsense but I realized that there was this other story about how the economy changed in how politics changed and what technology is doing. That is the other half and it. Really came when I was out talking about fantasy land with people readers, whatever I remember early on a woman rating stood up and said, well, what about climate change? Yes. It's a matter of nonsensical disregarding science in the facts, but it's it's all about people like the Koch Brothers shifting the way people thought in denying science and I said yeah but it wouldn't have happened. To the extent has the United States without this underlying iffy grip on empirical reality. But I realized that it was both of those things you know people all over the world had if he grips on honeybear curiosity but they don't have this massive politicized denial of climate change. For instance, it's the to in concert in so many ways that has led us where we are. Okay I have to time related questions the first about the writing of the book and the second about the time that you cover in the book, and I'm getting very specific about the timing of the writing the book because as you know, things are moving so fast that the second you think that something is the big story. Something else becomes the big story and these are both kind of Sixteen Post Twenty Sixteen Bucks where did you do pick up in writing this book and also when did you stop because you know it probably I'm assuming this was a pre black lives matter but maybe post covid book or am I getting that First of all fantasyland I wrote and finished before Donald Trump was even nominated. So it wasn't like Oh look Donald Trump I'll reverse engineer how that happened over several Hundred Years This I delivered it early February, but then bless random house had the next several months to incorporate, which is a significant INC because it reflects. So much of what I'm talking about the pandemic and the. Horrific. US government trump administration response to the pandemic, which illustrates most of my major themes in this book. So I the whole last chapter is about that and indeed the the black lives matter protest also is in here as well to the degree that relates to what I'm talking about this. This is a book less about race than it is about economics and technology, but it certainly all of the peace and I dress both the pandemic thoroughly,
Free Market Arguments against Medicare for All
"Today we have a really special guest professor Gerald, Freedman here known as Jerry. Last night Jerry debated sally pipes the CEO of Pacific Research, Institute. A known well known. And well-sited single payer opponent. At the Soho Forum on the question of whether the in nineteen pandemic makes it all the more urgent for the US to install a system of Medicare for all and I would say he killed it Jerry didn't you kill it? Thank you. As the conversation turned out Kobe was mostly used as a hook to return to the sort of long debate that we're having over Medicare for all I think. Other. Libertarian think tanks have also done for the same question. And also invited sally pipe she's sort of like a recurring figure so it was really interesting to me because. As a Medicare for all has has really picked up steam since Bernie Sanders run in two, thousand, sixteen or two thousand fifteen. We've. Really focused on dissecting and debunking the centre-left arguments against Medicare for all that have really sort of cropped up with the new enthusiasm for Medicare for all the past couple of years. And we've actually really stopped addressing right wing arguments for the time being as as we focus on organizing Democrats. And so Jerry was interesting for me to see. An argument or a conversation with a true sort of free market opponent of single payer healthcare and so I just want to kick things off by asking which of these like conservative or more free market arguments against single payer healthcare. Do you find to be the most compelling? Well the most compelling as long as we leave the most and because none of them are very compelling. I mean if you come down to it that arguments really based on a fantasy theory where a free market could happen in healthcare, which is wrong. But, free market competition in healthcare would promote. Efficient delivery of services and only the services that people want it. These arguments make no allowance. People can't afford it people who lack information for the public benefit that we all get when other people get healthcare. So. Yeah. Yeah. I mean as an economist I love studying free market economics. It's fun when I was young I used to play chess since analogous and it has about as much to do with the real economy as chess has to do with Martin Luther Nothing. So yeah. I mean I I don't find that arguments compelling but the most compelling I guess would be that. Well maybe you get some more efficiency. You know if. Hospitals had more pressure to find ways to deliver healthcare better but I don't I don't think they're really would really that way. So. It's not a sometimes I think that. They keep bringing sally pipes because they can't find anyone else to make this argument. But Jerry I mean she's making ultimately an economics argument against for all and for a pure kind of market based system and healthcare. Is there any chunk of the economics profession that actually believes a free market works in healthcare or is she really just a total fringe element here? I think she's pretty much on the French. That is. feeling among economists, most of whom brought up in this free market. fantasy. but there is a strong feeling that Oh God. If we made healthcare free at the point of service doing words, copays, deductibles, that would be some gigantic increase in demand for healthcare. As if healthcare's is like skiing, if I could ski for free as if we don't have this and all the other countries, right? Yeah Yeah I mean it's completely. I mean Americans love to not pay attention to the experience of other. Solly pipes is Canadian and clearly does not like the Canadian healthcare system for whatever reason Y- she restricts itself to the United States Canada and occasionally the UK. She's almost nothing to say about the rest of the world I thought that was kind of curious. In how books and in in debate yesterday she's acting like an American except. She recognized the candidates separate country. Yeah. But you know even if there was some huge upsurge demand. That might be an issue for financing and costing out of a program. But. Maybe. There'd be some benefit if more people could get
Evan Kuo: AMPL - the Controversial Digital Currency With an Elastic Supply
"I began our journey there. But just to set the context like to introduce to your audience. Audience. What ampoules are? So the foundation is called ampleforth foundation and we have a protocol called ampleforth protocol, but the ample amp pl is actually a token. It is a non collateralized cryptocurrency like bitcoin with an important twist, its supply elastic, and what this means is on a daily basis. The token in protocol will automatically increase or decrease the quantity of tokens held in user wallets based on twenty four hour weighted volume price. Let's the mission of influence. So what was the thing that drove you to start this? What needs? Did you see it flipping? So the mission of ampleforth this to become an essential building block of an alternative financial ecosystem, and really I think what's interesting is how we came to this realization that we've been needed a building block or how we even decided that that would be an interesting thing to produce and just kind of going back to the beginning of the journey with me and brandon like I said were thinking very deeply about why bitcoin was designed the way it was because it was so obviously difficult to scale and. Two things, kind of emerged from that thought process number one, it was designed to counteract a sovereign monopoly and that was very different than our minds from say a free market monopoly. So say, for example, you're not happy with how Google or facebook function you, and I are free to go and create a search engine to our liking or a social network to our liking and compete on the open market. Now, they have a lot of advantages being incumbent, but nobody would tell us You cannot compete with Google, you cannot innovate upon facebook we're free to try. But. In the case of money, it's not the case, right? So historically, people have tried to create their own currencies like even liberty dollar meeting their own coins started used them in circulation in been stopped by the government, and that's the difference between a sovereign monopoly, and if market monopoly and one thing that struck us is that the bitcoin protocol great lengths to counteract the sovereign monopoly in being censorship persistent. Made huge concessions along the way. For this reason we think that if if the service that you're producing doesn't really require that level of censorship resistance, you might be handicapping yourself a great deal in attempting to say create a better search engine on a smart contract programming platform because of scale and usability limitations, and so on and so forth. How would you say the bitcoin protocol has restricted itself and basically you said earlier that you think it's not scalable. What's behind? That can go a little bit into technical detail. What exact you thing is not scalable. I think as a layer one blockchain. It has a limited in TPS right and as the ledger gets bigger and bigger, you run into all sorts of congestion issues and you let's say comparing to something like visa, it can't hear handle nearly as many transactions per second, and again, this is thinking back to our interpretation of the original paper title, appeared appeared digital cash, and of course, our naive understanding of money at the time was that caches that which I use. Use to purchase coffee. There's something different about how bitcoin is designed rate, but I also want to just move forward to the next point of realization that we came to, which is really important and the bitcoin protocol succeeded in articulating scarcity in a purely digital context, right. So unlike golden natural commodities, which naturally scarce by the physical limitations of the world, the bitcoin protocol was able to define scarcely using just an algorithm and that's very unique in the digital world like. Many things are scarce, digital world somebody takes a photo, it gets replicated. You can't really undo that you can't say that this is the only instance of that digital photo. So that was a really big idea and the takeaway for me. Brandon was that the the most salient opportunity to apply this sort of technology is money, and then what happened was we began to wonder about what was wrong with money rates. We saw that bitcoin has succeeded in creating a censorship resistant fix apply acid that's analogous to a digital gold. But what was even wrong with gold? Is there anything wrong? Wrong with gold and you know we really recruited a very helpful and we're super grateful for this team of investors. In advisors. You pentire capital true ventures, founder collective, even Brian Armstrong and folks from the Hoover Institute at Stamford, which is,

HBO Max removes 'Gone With the Wind,' will add context
"Hbo Max there is a move hbo just launched, and it has a pretty impressive movie library, but one of its biggest movies has been removed from the library very quickly after its launch. Brat. Tell us about that. Yes, the Classic Gone With the wind has been taken out of the HBO Max Library for the time, being. Being after a plea from twelve years, slave writer John Ridley in the Los. Angeles Times I asked them to remove it and that's largely because even the gone with the wind is a Hollywood classic It's been you know in the Zeitgeist for the longest time you know, but it's always been criticized for its depiction of slavery It makes it seem like. Slaves were content in loyal to their owners. And it also had plenty of racial stereotypes, and because of that John Really thought that right now is releasing the best time for movie like that to Hbo Max in that. It should be taken off temporarily, but then brought back. With a discussion on it to provide some historical context, so that people understand that this is not an accurate picture of. The antebellum south before the civil war, and that this is not you know slavery as it is in the history books. In really himself says he doesn't believe in censorship, but he wanted this movie to be. Portrayed responsibly. For their part HBO Max, did take it down and they provided a statement. About the racist depictions, and how they were wrong van in the wrong now they actually borrowed some of the verbiage from a disclaimer that they put in front of some looney tunes that they released a home video because there are some classic animated shorts that have. Stereotypical depictions of people of other races, but they had. I think it was will be. Goldberg did like an Intro to explain it and say were presented them uncut because to. Not present them or present them edited would be to deny they ever existed, and so that's basically what needs to be done with gone with the wind, so I think he's a smart move. Obviously, some people are saying comparing this to like burning books are racing history, but obviously since they're going to bring it back at some point with historical context, that's not the case and people need to grow up. You can ask me anyways. To add that is not censorship. If it's a private company taking it out of their circulation, it's only censorship if it's the government, and this is only the free market doing its work as it's supposed to be so i. just think it's really funny when people pull out the. Censorship, when it's not in fact, falls under that umbrella of
Honoring George Floyd with Real Change, a Statement from Marriott
"CEO Arne Sorenson, and addressing the recent events surrounding race in this country, and in his company in a recent linked posts, saying for many years I've tried to use my purchased Marriott to advocate for opportunity for all regardless of race, gender, nationality, or any other point of human difference, each person deserves to be recognized for who we are and respected for common humanity, and the distinct qualities that make us unique joining us right now. Is Arne Sorenson? He is the CEO of Marriott international and Arnie. It's great to see you. Thanks for being with us today. Becky you to. Want to set this against the proper backdrop, obviously, the last several months have been incredibly difficult for everybody in the Travel and leisure industry. You are a global company. You've got more than seven thousand properties, one hundred and thirty one different countries, so you've been watching the arc of this as it all takes place, you've had to close properties. You've had to furlough employees. Where are we right now? How many of your properties are actually still shuttered? How many? Employees. Have you had to furlough? How many have you been able to bring back? Less aggression there, of course, the impact of Covid nineteen has been profound on our business. We've seen. By Revenue Sales, at army tells by ninety percent globally starting of course I in China then moving around the world as we got into March. And are low point. We had about two thousand, nine, hundred seventy five hundred hotels that were closed around the world. We've probably reopened three to four hundred of those I. Think when we look at even in the United States. We see the early signs of recovery, although we've gone from something like minus ninety percent revenue, something like minus eighty percent revenue so well in percentage terms. If you think about it from the bottom is up one hundred percent. is still a long long. Before and we suspect it's going to be. A slow climb beck. Levels we nineteen. So that sets the backdrop for what a difficult several months it's been already and how much you have on your plate. Employees are kind of watching this and not knowing what's happening on, either then you have the civil unrest and the riots that have taken place, and that adds to it so as A. What did this mean? Warning label to do. What are you hearing from your employees? This is obviously a just blew latest reminder, a frustratingly long Sharon criminal justice, particularly for for blacks and urban cities in the United States. where! There is unfairness that is profound, a and I suppose the only thing that are is what positive about this is the availability of cell. And the fact that we can see the outrageous behavior that obviously. Killed George Floyd in Minneapolis. Allows US I think to some sometimes. Put aside your search for him big. Unity Instead, say this is a profoundly unacceptable. And start to turn the corner in eight now. What is it that we can do about it? When I blog about this weekend, of course was was quite personal. I woke up Saturday morning and had this on my mind as everybody did. and. This is something we should communicate about. I'm obviously not black leader in a business community him United States. We have a very diverse work group and wanted to communicate with them like the more I think about it. It is not just a question about what we Mary Do, which is really the focus of blog, but recognize that what any individual company can do is simply not enough. We've gotTA. Find a way to. Make a dramatic more progress can. Is Space than any single company? Can You well what does that translate into in real terms? Arnie we, all the conversations are underway in a number of different organizations, so the VRT for Jampel is is talking about fitness a real time as we speak. I think many of us are are using our networks, folks both inside and outside our companies to. Talk about places we can make a difference I think I. Think and must each of us do what we can with our workforce and with our partnerships, unity's where we do business, but I think that we can band together also through outfits like the Bart recognized that we've got to work on criminal justice issues which. Company can't do probably ending together and advocating. Criminal Justice around educational opportunity around access to healthcare around access to financial resources. These are for big areas that. Collectively. We can push for not just. What can we do as companies, but what can we? Help implement in the policy space. To to put this outrageous behavior bindis. SAY THAT! These are real time conversations that are happening with you and your peers at the Business Roundtable How quickly do you think that this is something that can, it can translate into action. We had Randal Stevenson a former head of the business roundtable on earlier this week, and he said that look when any of these big companies kind of put their mind to it, they they can have a significant amount of say in policy in Washington and that we've seen it happen time and time again. For issues that are near, and dear to any of these individual companies, hearts or that make a real difference for business business doesn't work free markets don't work in an environment where a large class of our people are perceiving and experiencing injustice, so we have an imperative to begin to use our muscle and are influenced to begin to affect policy change to address this. That this is something where? This is a moment that all of these companies are going to stick with us and say that this A. An agenda that has to carry down I do I do it again. By suggesting for a second, Bart ought to band together and use its force together. I'm not crying. Excuse the conduct that any individual company will be we will continue to be very active in this space as myriad, but I think collectively would be that much louder and I think the Bart and other organizations will move very quickly and will not let up on this. I think our employees basis demand. I think society demands it. I think fundamental aspects of fairness and the importance of opportunity. demands it and I think as a consequence. Is this event I? Don't know whether you had a chance to see prisoner after noon. But one of the things that I found some
Kingpins Daily: Eliot Ness
"Times but in his nineteen fifty. Seven book the untouchables. Ness reveals a more vulnerable side of himself. One that suggests that even the most by the book offices questioned the very rules they enforce. He wrote doubts race through my mind as I consider the feasibility of enforcing which the majority of honest citizens didn't seem to want the law of at Ness was referring to was the eighteenth amendment to the United States Constitution. I ratified in January. Nineteen nineteen it banned the manufacture sale and transportation of intoxicating liquors and incited the prohibition era for those unfamiliar. It's important to note that Americans didn't just wake up with a hangover and empty liquor cabinets. They had the opportunity to prepare for prohibition and prepare they did many acted like Frat boys before a big snowstorm. They hoarded alcohol. And why shouldn't they? There was absolutely no promise that the storm of prohibition was going to pass any time soon. In fact they were politicians. Like Senator Morris Sheppard of Texas essentially telling people the pigs would fly before it ended. Needless to say there were stockpiles of liquor everywhere and by everywhere we mean in the cellars of those who could afford it. How were they able to purchase these now? Illicit goods simple the eighteenth amendment was poorly written as we said it banned quote the manufacture sale and transportation of intoxicating liquors. It failed to mention whether alcohol was illegal to consume and it didn't define what in the good hell intoxicating meant so without parameters to enforce any law. Authorities like Eliot Ness. We're left twiddling their thumbs. Enter the VOL- Stead Act in nineteen twenty it defined intoxicating liquors any substance containing point five percent alcohol or more for perspective. That's one tenth. The average can of beer of course higher proof substances could still be manufactured and sold for practical applications like medicine cleaning and religious sacraments e there were loopholes and whether loopholes there are people abusing said loopholes for profit. Which is exactly what happened. The reason prohibition caused mind speakeasy as Pianos flappers and booze is because alcohol didn't go anywhere. In fact during prohibition consumption increased by an estimated sixty to seventy percent it just moved from the free market to the black market from being a stable of the American home to being. Contraband as it did. The line between crime and leisure became incredibly blurred which led to some very lucrative and suddenly criminal enterprises. Elliott's ness the man in charge of enforcing prohibition laws in all this mess in Chicago. No less the home of notorious mob. Boston bootlegger Al Capone Aka scarface. Ness worked for the Prohibition Bureau from Nineteen Twenty Six all the way to the end of prohibition in Nineteen Thirty Three. In that time he was surrounded. By other prohibition who were accepting bribes in exchange for turning a blind eye to these illegal operations. Everyone was getting rich and they use this new ethical gray scale to justify their actions. It was after all just alcohol. Who is it hurting? Really like said the majority of honest citizens didn't even want the law ness wasn't the delusion that any person who chose to imbibe where criminals but at the same time there were men like Al Capone men who were undoubtedly criminals and from between those two extremes sprung doubt and the fact. That ness had doubts is important. It's a shame that history frequently ignores that chapter of his story too often. He's relegated to a trope. The unflinching leader of the untouchables. A team of agents that upheld the law at all costs but the truth is much more complicated than that. What misunderstood was the good and bad can exist on both sides of the law. Yes Eliot Ness would one day help take down. Al Capone a man responsible for the deaths of many innocent lives. But prohibition had more victims than those men victims whose stories are often forgotten the poor the ones that we're most held accountable by the laws of prohibition simply because

"It's all the time you're gonNA know where we're at so if you're investing in US then you're gonna see that a every day. We're going to be posting in there. You're GonNa know exactly where we are so. It's not like a blog post that I've kind of been preparing for the last month that slight right right. You'll see US arguing about what's competing game and what's not so. I hope that's a pretty cool interesting perspective that people haven't had a chance to get before on a game yeah <hes> and and then what do what is the <hes> <hes> estimated price for the game. It's free. It's free the game really okay so we are. We're not gonNA smash you over the head with ads. I am really trying to avoid putting ads in the game at all. If we're really looking to do some very very very accessible pricing on you know some things that would enhance your progress speed you know like that and then like anything in the game seventy five dollars right. I can make with on the air sir or we might even do like a dollar a month membership or something that gives you continuous boosts and access to special things hangs so we're we're really trying to keep the cost. Just Oltra low and none of us are taking a paycheck until the game is live on the market and were actually making money from it so it's going to be one hundred percents you know up front work on our part and again I just I've you that as a goodwill gesture towards the ogre trying to support us. It's not we're not taking the money and running. We're already making the game and all of this is going back akin to making that happen yeah yeah. That's that's crazy. I mean that's a huge <hes> risk for everybody everybody on the team totally right boral invested. D I think I think it's GonNa be better for the fans in the long term yeah yeah that's interesting <hes> well yeah this. This has been awesome. Luke where <hes> basically the last question is basically where can people find you more <hes> and shameless plug everything the Azure so you can find my podcast culture of peace which is a libertarian interview show or I'm having various people on to talk about what they're doing always trying to be a positive spin on things than others so much to complain about as an anarchist or libertarian. We always try to have something cool and unique going on that you you can take part in or read or something like that so it's not just like being depressed every day.

"free market" Discussed on AnarchoInc - The Free Market Business Podcast
"Don't inc the game but there's a there's a message there right to be said Ed and it's like beyond Libertarian and you know anarchist community sure yeah it's it's not an I try to make this really clear when I'm talking to people about the game but it's not a libertarian game quote unquote you know it's not like you play for five minutes and then Murray rothbart quote start popping up or something so because who would play that right instantly really alienate. Almost everyone exacto the focus from you know from day. One has been to make fun game. That's interesting that people want want to play and I really see us. As solving like two problems that exist within the Games number one is that they're free except that they have massive back in price tags like you know you install this and then you're making some progress and it's kind of fun and you're enjoying what you're doing and then and it's like okay well. If you WANNA go to the arena again you need to pay seventy six dollars and it's like what you know. Why couldn't I just go by. I like a full AAA title for that and that only gets you so much progress anyway so it's just absolutely absurd the price tags that these games have and then also there's not really much of a narrative at all. and I don't think that every single game the world has this huge multi alty path narrative structure. You know every game is not the witcher to rate but I think that there's an opportunity for us to say okay. Here's a game you can spend five minutes playing at a time you can kick it on in the morning before you go to work and in the evening before you go to asleep or whatever which is usually what I do with mobile games and then but at the same time you're actually making progress towards something that you want to know what's going to happen open and so we have this kind of narrative that we keep tweaking the details you know of course the game is not even an Alpha at this point but we're we're having this this kind of thought where this the CIA guy is you know kind of welcoming you in he he gets you set up and he's like okay. This is what we need you to do. You need you to sell fast food and that's and a fund our projects and then every project that you get to start you get a little bit of a glimpse more into the storyline so that's the main thing where like the tone will shift over time and it kind of gets darker as the game aim goes on you know. I it's very peppy and commercial and who rob Erica and Robin. You know as you get into it. It's like you have this news. Ticker that runs across across the top of the screen and the news is always going to be showing right so do things the news starts to evolve and you get to see the disconnect between what's actually happening. Thank you know very well because you're doing it and how it's being reported and you'll go you know that's Kinda. Wow we sort of caused that problem you know and and so we're not sure exactly how it's all going to pan out but I want to have some dynamic character in there and I wanNa have some you know questioning of this whole thing and it's not just to say oh. I hate the CIA and the FBI and places like that I mean I think they're doing terrible stuff but this is a story that set within the CIA world and it happens to show these things. It's not you know it's not a moral bludgeon. Were China everyone over the head with so yes yeah no sounds. It sounds great concept. Are I mean I love the isometric asymmetric view. I'm old school Gamer. I've played the old like Baldur's Gate Dhanjal Yemen. Yeah those are those. Are I love that Kinda. I mean like even some of the old school fallout. People don't realize that like original fallout was a symmetric you know it's like turn based combat and really you know. I enjoy those type of games so that's cool so what so oh how what sort of I WANNA say like tactful like obviously IOS. It's ex code for people that don't I don't know that but not that sorta tech but like how do you keep the day to day kind of operations like you know or how do you guys. Are you guys project project management story boarding you know you know. What sort of tech are you finding helping you manage. This project share share a good the question so we're really I mean what I did before I even started to bring that team members on with started to create a Google drive which is it's just so convenient. Everyone has g mail address right so I just got a big branching nest of folders in there that you know it's like yours art folder. Here's here's the crowdfunding folder. Here's you know all of these spreadsheets. 'cause that's kind of what I do. At my day job to is just make spreadsheets all the time you know analyze his data rates so is trying to make it make sense and so google slides is a great thing you know and and I can make a little flow chart to kind of show this. This is how the concepts and the game tied together. You know your customers pay the money. The money goes underground. Underground gets expanded that issue more prestige so you can do more missions. You know that kind of stuff so that's been really helpful but we've also used a product called air table a little bit that we don't have like a ultra premium subscription to or anything. We would probably get that pretty quick. Once the game takes off even the free stuff is great you can. It's like data basing a little bit. It's a lot more sophisticated than your standard excel spreadsheet or something you can it really intuitively kind of reorganize your data and attach folders and files and things to your cell. You're in your in your database and and it's a great way for people to be able to take ownership of certain things so our kind of using the scrum system fear familiar with that and so this allows me to create a product backlog list of everything that needs to be in the game and then individual people after I've kind of assigned priority staff staff. They can jump in and say okay. I'm doing this and we're gonNA come back and beat two weeks you know Roseanne we all have day dobbs and the programmer grammer the lead programmers in the UK rate so that's a trick with time zones and this is just a non timezone non conference call dependent way of kind of updating progress. We also strangely enough for using a facebook group and that's one of the the crowd funding. Things is if you if you actually do fifteen dollars or more when the crowdfunding then you get into our development group on facebook spoke so you can see all of the discussion we're having an all of the stuff and if you think we're getting off on the wrong track and that's a dumb idea then you'll be able to say that drank lead us so it's. Kinda like a forum like a PHP or something would be a little bit just to old old school. You know a little so I thought this'll be fun and everybody seemed to like that idea so I mean even right now. There's a lot in there. We've been talking about like what should the crowdfunding tears be. And what should we be giving people for those and what we have a character sketch for kind of the main. CIA Guy that gets you started started in the game and so you can see what we've said about it and so there's a lot there already that you could get access to immediately whenever you choose to help us take this thing get finished yeah and so you had mentioned crowdfunding so sounds like you've started as some sort of kickstarter or or something where people can help with the project. Yes so it's Indie Gogo. I chose them because they kind of let you have a prelaunch launch page so right now. You know we're recording. This fairly early compared to when it's going to go live so right now. It's a prelaunch page but by the time dots audience is hearing this. It's GonNa be live and so it's right now. I have a short link made its just Luke tatum dot com slash dummy okay and so you know you can you can check that out and we have some pretty cool stuff that are limited in number so if if you like me to expound on that a bit I can kind of break down the two years yeah you gotta go for it. Yeah for our listeners. Yeah 'cause the crowdfunding is sounds like the biggest way making making support you yeah yeah definitely so the entry level is going to be the five dollars tier and anybody who does five dollars for above at any of the tears is gonNA. They get their name in the credits of the game because it's a big big big deal for us to have your support but if you go any higher than that fifteen dollars others are more you're. GonNa get a lot of cool bonuses so you'll get a permanent multiplier on how much money you're making in the game. You'll get access to that development group on facebook and you'll also get a digital copy of the soundtrack which right now we've got two major songs planned but there could be more depending on how much funding we achieve and all that we'd like to make this as big and awesome of a game as possible right so who knows sky's the limit on that but at least two ooh songs and then after that you can get a concept art book. That'd be thirty dollars at the fifty dollar level. You'll actually get to be on one of our conference calls also when we're kinda checking with each other and really getting into it verbally no talking about what's going on. We have these limited number things so one hundred and fifty dollars there's only two of these you can name one of the fast food items in the restaurant so like he could be like. Dr Roberts Fried Chicken special recipe whatever something like that so two of those if you want to name MM and kind of help design one of the businesses like so the restaurants in front of like a strip mall and they'll be like a car auto body body shop and there and all this but we have some businesses that don't have names or identities right now so if you want to name one of those and kind of determine what it is like linkage in aquarium shop for or whatever you know you can do that and so that Sam three of those available and the very very top tier you can actually be in the game. We have character plan that does not have a face yet so we will take photos of you or you'll send us photos and will actually do just like the agent guy that you've already seen It'll be that kind of art. You know if your face and you'll be in the game everybody who plays it. We'll see you so. I think that's a pretty cool thing and really really excited to see ends up getting that. That's that at those some lakes of really good tiers I might even have the sign up for one of them so when do you when in the estimated launch for the game so we're aiming for Q. Two of next year and it's kind of far off but we have a really a small core team right depending on how much money we raised with this crowdfunding. We may be able to bring on some additional. artists like up her a contract basis right so just hey we need you to knockout these ten three asset since go for it right and then pay hourly on something like that that would help us really accelerate how fast the game comes out. So you know my hope is that we totally smashed. The refunding refunded thing we're only trying to raise six thousand dollars which compared to some of these kickstarter and Indie Gogo things for games. That's dropping the bucket right so if if we were to to make the six I think that would give us plenty of wiggle room to make this stuff happened faster but then you know who knows us right if we raise twelve thousand dollars than we could probably get it. Get it out early next year so will always want to be upfront and honest and that Adam is the biggest thing of that facebook group allows us to do right..

"Did. I'm the one that called the damn cop so i i really struggle with that so i'm not trying to be a hypocrite here i i. I'm not that said if if somebody's a teacher and they're advocating they're not advocating for their own raises their voting no on all the levees and they're teaching children free market principles without it <hes> causing them any red flags teaching accountability and responsibility and what the free market principles are a free self-determination in cellphone if they're doing those things it's still a net positive so i kind of have a little empathy there. I think it's baby steps. <hes> for people relate tanner. Let's say somebody is can't afford their house payment and they they work for the state and as long as they're trying trying very hard and not just saying they're trying they know in their heart. Everyone knows in their heart the truth we're not really trying and we say we are. Everyone's one's been with a boyfriend or girlfriend and like trying to make this work but really you're just waiting until it's you know what i mean. As long as you're doing that and you are trying to take take the steps to liberate yourself from the system great. If i personally believe that we need to do a good the job helping take care of our own. <hes> the mormon church has some amazing organization great anarchist need to be. I don't think that we want a little more privacy then they have because they but but they do a very good job at owning themselves and trying in to take care of their own outside of the state. I happen to think that is the way to do it for anarchist. We need to fight each other and the internet thing that ever happened to us. Oh absolutely one hundred percent so i a great podcast did while back with on liberty weekly it was a father's day special <hes> with patrick and <hes> dan from last night hers and nik cohn from sounds like liberty guys around the launchpad yeah all launch pad right of of course <hes> <hes> and so we did a father's day special in a patrick. This is something i've taken with me is that sometimes you always don't have the luxury jury of principle liberty or something like that pretty much. You don't have the luxury always to be an anarchist when the state has their on our neck can every corner right in a classic example is that is in the pre show we were talking about how i went to a farmer's market and and i had to get a business license to go to this farmer's market and i was like this is insane in and yeah even the the the the private person who's running the farmers market agreed to she's like i know i understand we lose a lot of vendors because of this so now you have to go and get a business license and then i go get a business license and then the business insurance is like you really should l._l._c. annals like i don't wanna l._l._c. That's asking the permission permission due to for me to do business but but they're like well you know then of course. There's always this fear tactic right will if you don't l._l._c. they'll come and take everything away from you or whatever right and it's just it's. It's very it's very difficult right <hes> an l._l._c. You can write off a lot of your taxes in <unk>. I take care of your own household on that insert paying the government less again.

You stick with it. You'll do. Well, how are you getting? How are you going about marketing your show? How are you finding people to listen to the show? What sort of feedback are you finding? Man, that's still something on trying to work out. I mean, Twitter social media. Join rating. You sharing yourself those cribs having a certain guests on and having their following helpfully dick, what you're doing when they appear right? I really should. I'm that's a great question. I, I'm gonna make as orgasmic as I can, you know, when you start putting money until I faced mechanic, whatever at some points pointless, but I feel like. Being in the liberty movement. Everyone is really working together in front supportive. And yeah. As I hear people are going to have their disputes within bell. Always may not get them for a string of anarchism that you'd. Right. Right. L the little animals, and right. Honestly, I don't really see a whole lot of that. And honestly, I think being all agreed like vying by non-aggression will end just kind of like some stance. But our main goal Reno, I think, everyone would agree that the end goal is to have the state society. But, you know, if you wanna go more pragmatic, approach may be tried to change government. But, you know, lightly over time trying to get as monarchic as you can once you like coal back more, like whatever method you think it is, frankly, I think the best method like, if you're Janet about changing the political system is. Right. Is really about, you know, if you want, if you're anarchists like the methods and tools he uses a as a gore race. But I think that we can all like, no matter what faction deliver de movement can all agree that really kind of all have the same goal. So really helping you know, I mean as many people as possible in the movements, but, you know, rather than Stick's kind of echo chamber, like, right? Each other often, what redo? It's exciting. It is to start changing minds to roll. Yeah. I mean that's that's why. As much hate mail as got. But my last podcast was the libertarian antifascist committee, where I spoke to a one of the co founders of that. And I did that one. Yeah. In, in a lot of people were, you know, upset about it, and it is what it is. I'm trying to expand my mind and trying to understand the other side of the story. Right. And I think it, you know, it's as I said in the beginning podcast, I say it all the time. You know, the left wing right wing. It's the same fucking bird and we all know birds or fake. Right. So. Right. Right. Well, well, there's a joke to this whole, like, I think the left put it out. It was like this bird conspiracy that government makes birds and pigeons are robots. And I forget, if you Google like state for our. Well, we do live in a surveillance state like there's cameras on their brains and their brain. Yeah. There was a whole joke. I mean it was like, yeah, but I, I mean it's, it's just the thing. Like I tried I'll try to listen you know, to your idea of socialism, or this, there's other word, I need to understand utilize them, which to me, it's just. I don't get it. It doesn't the ideas, don't click with me. They can't process it through my mind. You know, maybe a problem is at the end of the day, you know, like you can be well-meaning bragging in day, if you buy the rules than it all comes up to, you know, coercion and force, exactly for you in jail or kill ya. And I just think you join the club where else could die. And I don't get it in into me. My favorite quote is a cost, my favorite author, Iran. Right. Atlas shrug. And all that such a, you know, conservative Booker status book, whatever. But I think it's a great story talks about the nurse. Yeah. She's reading, but yeah.

One of them was like freshly, you know, the, the subscription, you know, and in we see these things grow in either, get acquired by other private sectors. And so if we have those types of individuals, you know, I think it'll happen now I've heard people argue just more recently on a podcast. You know you know what you're talking about. Yeah. Not everybody can be an entrepreneur. What's that? You're talking about online liberty when they had Antony debates the so-called communist at and listen to that one. Yeah. Well, he was saying that of the central capitalists, you know, they're just the fat casts up. They're making decisions. They're not doing any work at all. I act that when you're talking about what you do not saying that you do that. But it's right you heal west like really like. Where do you think these people actually started, like nothing s capital in this is about taking risk? Yep. Some entre BS saying, you know, high risk high reward is true for investing your time engine capital into something that really matters other than just sitting there as tenured professor, and just spewing this stuff. That doesn't make any sense. Right. Right. Exactly. I mean, hope it doesn't care that you probably doesn't wish these probably will not. I'm not that I'm not that famous infant, even if he does be anarchist a fuck it. Yeah. Yeah. Are you kidding me? The communist haven better like you can't use the word anarchy this, not what it means or whatever it's just like I can do whatever the fuck, I want because. Who are you gonna stop me, you know, and frankly, if you anarchy would it because the force violence state as right? Yeah, they're going to get the state. Yeah. They probably will stop me.

Well, I don't see I'm not gonna deal in hypotheticals I'm gonna deal with the right now and I'm doing the right now. And I'm building my businesses, and I'm trying to be an entrepreneur, and using the free market at, you know, as good libertarian to, to make change and promote liberty as it can be. That's actual one of the reasons I loved you fail is. Yeah, that thing that you say at the beginning, like at the beginning of my shoe this kinda tongue-in-cheek joke saying you can get this podcast on Spotify to sit your anywhere. You can get podcast in this on me as quasi fascist quasi-socialist dressed up as capitalists, but super close to the free market, which we all wish that we lived in. But we don't right? Which is what we're doing. United. Making do what we can exactly much later on that connection, such shows like. Yeah. Thanks. And this is real capitalism. Unfortunately, right, showing Richmond, his partner at the libertarian institute, he identifies as the market anarchist, which is really kind of like what we should all call ourselves. I actually on my Twitter. Bio says men are like Mark, anarchists man, Arcus. Yeah, I love it. Yeah. Yeah. Of the catches on 'cause. Yeah. No. I I love it. Yeah. I mean, like yeah.

Simple totems of liberty 'cause if you just get into the scene, and you hear that Tom woods is like, the, you know, the megaliths of this whole thing. Right. It's kind of hard to start at the beginning in this kind of, like you're a same to just kinda have this pre knowledge in dry like a great job. And just, you know, cutting out the fat, and right, here's what it is. But for someone to just starting out giving into it. Kind of a, a just learning hoops, yet hop through. So I try to make my show the opposite of that in a way but just you know, sorry, it's basic as possible, but some of these, I'm kinda like learning as a Gill, but it's just great as what kind of keeps me.

So you've been doing the sued electoral podcast for some time now. I mean talk about like we're talking about in the pre show. You know there are some bumps in the road that you might have experienced some trouble shooting. You know, you had to do figuring out of record the podcast watch teller was, you know, story about that, and how you kind of overcome it. And really, that's really what we're trying to benefit within ARCO ink is getting motivating people to start your own podcast or start their own business, and it's not all, you know, rainbows and roses when you're doing this right out. No. Absolutely not. So this is really my second podcast. I have before. Like, what I call a bad conversion of job Rogin, I would actually go out to see bands play in interview them, locally, nothing was putting nickel behind it like the first week's episode. And then, like, end the week of the stoop like of logging, sort of thing were talk about life, and you start doing that's kinda hard to not avoid were is kinda hard to avoid Baltics are just things you care about right?

Right. I think I don't know brother. You know, I can I feel your passion. I think you'll find it and I think something like the practical libertarian in, in frankly, even the noisemaker podcast.

If you're into web development, great podcasts whatever skip it, but they. They had this guy on who started something similar to you. It took him ten years to get there. But I just wanna tell the story to you to kinda give you some hope it's called any hackers. I think dot com and this guy started any hackers because he was in, in. You mentioned the, the crap happened on Facebook and this is where Facebook's gonna lose in. We're going to kind of go back to the old forums and stuff like that. And create a are these niche websites, maybe like the noisemaker all the practical libertarian, he started any hackers because there were bunch of these guys, starting all these side projects in development and couldn't really find an outlet for all for all them to, you know, collect share ideas. So he started the website with a forum, and I think, chat room may be. And he also started podcast to associate indie hackers while I think like somewhere between five and ten years later. Who was it came and offered him? Oh stripe. The payment processing companies stripe or okay? Effort. Yup. Came and essentially wrote in an e talks about the podcast. I'll put in the show loans.

"They operate on a communal level. Why, you know. And they don't really have, you know, same type of property, right? That in our co capless will be earlier with. They didn't really have that before the state came in. So why would they adult that after? Right. You know they, they had their own, you know. They have their own agreement on how they use their property. And they just wanted to be left allow. And what it's funny 'cause as, as a society, Some some. socialist, or at least with how is stain themselves as like pay have a ton of like random worker co ops that they've started a as a as a to be an interesting. I it's all voluntary like, you know, join whatever work with you ever. But their biggest export is coffee. You know, not the compete with anarchy coffee but. Vafa tea coffee is like Dave been selling that and not as how they find their Thomas and Arcus community mainly through coffee sales. But also, they make leather products and other crafts things like that. I've seen. So when I came out with ARCO coffee, somebody posted about that coffee in this, like whatever that, you know. But then I like, then I post again in just then they were saying some pretty nasty shit. And I was just like all right. I'm not going to deal with this. I'm going to block it. You know, now, if they had posted and said something like, oh, cool, you've got a narcos coffee. We've got this coffee but it was something pretty nasty. It was something like, you know, I, I forgot what they said like something like fuck your neck Baird Schill coffee, in by our shit sort of thing slow like okay, well, the like that's not a way to approach this, like any should be at should be thing where, you know, you're looking at, you know, buys apetit s- coffee to support an actually existing anarchist community and by anarchy coffee to support, you know, spreading that earth. Oh, yeah. And our community, you know, or. Yeah. By our coffee to support us, or, you know, by Mike coffee to support the, you know, the me in, in the donations I make to the liberty movements. I choose. Right. Exactly. So, yeah, I made it could built here and bear sustaining that bear you're working towards similar goal. It's a free. I get why from people who come from a libertarian perspective. I do get why there has a chance of anything called and ARCO capitalism, the highs of that hierarchy that I was talking about that comes in and traditionally anarchists are against all forms of higher not to say about, you know, that, like we quit and tolerate that, you know, or that, you know, that couldn't be tolerated on a limited level, in that way, like, I don't think that is, you know, big of a deal as people think, as far as you know, the, the differences, I think there's so much skepticism because let's face a lot of free marketers before RAF are considered themselves anti topless because they were using capitalism to talk about our current rate market system. Fard redefine, capitalism with them and. Arcus context to mean a free market system ruin not like most anarchists of all frites are not against free markets, even the socialists. Yeah. Yes. Over what over what a free market hit. Yes, she chain started using a from liberty under attack publications. He started using the idea of free market anarchist, which I kind of like and again, you know, I try not to get too much into the weeds. I think for me, your you or you know, this group down in Mexico. The idea is freedom and what freedom means to you and personal freedom. Right. So for me. Yeah, it semantics like I you know, I don't have these, you know, I will have these type of debate or are these type of discussions, I should say when they come up, but, like archly I'm not worried about the semantics I'm worried about what you're actually doing. Yeah. And that's why like I at the end of the day I consider myself in a gory. First and foremost, an anarchist, went on after that now by historical definition, I tend to, you know, see a lot more in common with, you know, the anti capitalist movements various stripes, within libertarian context. But I also see that within a traditional libertarian context, Energo capitalism is not what libertarians traditionally saw Coppola's, so even anti topless. Libertarians? Shouldn't be nearly as hard line and ARCO capitalist. They're the confusion over the term was redefined. And a lot of that came from a post Cold War, America where the term socialism was so closely aligned with status regimes that Rafar thought it easier to try to redefine capitalism's, try to remind people what socialism meant. Interesting. Yeah. I mean, you're you your. I'm trying to find the words I mean, you're leaving me speechless, really because you're, you're questioning. You know, the things I relate to right? And it's sometimes a hard pill to swallow, you know, but, you know, the, the only thing I can say is, you know, I just, you know, go from I think we all, you know, walk this life from our own personal experiences. You don't know until you walk in that person's shoes. Right. And, and I think at the end of the day for me, it's just, you know, I've said it in numerous podcasts in, in the biot- all that. It's it's freedom and freedom for me is not being chained to a desk, nine to five. The idea to be home, my family and the idea of traveling and gardening and sustainability, right. Kind of all is ideas. I really enjoy. I don't think you know, it it's sad to see man woman, whatever spend forty fifty there, fifty years of their lives working, and then to only enjoy ten of them. And if you're lucky to live that long right or whatever, you know. A lot of a lot of early American anarchist latched onto the labor movement and where, you know, we're talking about like before it got have a before it got like heavily Bor bureaucratized in the way that it is now. Zoe's bureaucrats. Right. And it's actually funny like a lot of what? A lot of what people think if fro labor legislation that our government has in place, and even the National Labor Relations board, which seems very pro union actually have to a while the union movement into status, and it was largely successful to some. To some degree maybe fell CIO movements like that. But you still have the industrial workers of the world. You still have coalition Moccoli workers, you still have Bruce, like our WalMart, and he groups that are tackling it from grassroots, level smut, don't even unions, Addis, as that would restrict them too much. And you know, because with government recognition of unions, came the outlawing of the tactics that actually worked. And, you know, and but you still have like the industrial because the world was the union that Samuel confidante, and he saw anarchist syndicalism. And you know, radical labor unions, as being a necessary part of a gory as part of a free market. And for similar reasons to what you just talked about. You want to be, you know, chain to death bossed around, and, you know, work for, you know, somebody else's pocket the day, and there is an exploitation system and the way that our current market is set up with the hierarchy in the way and not to say that enter co- Coppola's, the NRP cop was in the hierarchy that they would have with the a lot more voluntary in our in our rigged market system. It is a worker starve scenario where the market is heavily subsidized favor of, of, of, you know, corporatists and, and as science, the union move bet kinda sprung up at originally as a way to combat a lot of that cronyism. Before being, you know, before being co opted, by the states as the state tend to deal with a lot of. You know, a goriness have always banned still to this day tend to be pretty damn pro Hyun Yeon when it comes to the unions who are trying to go through the state. Right. I think but I think that I think that makes the clear that libertarians are not against all we unions of bridge, that gap and get a lot of the semantics out of the way because I think a lot of. A lot of people when they, you know, and libertarian socialist circles, when they see referring Coppola's when they see, you know, anarchy Pappas and they think the bath has all the conferral thinking three markets. They're thinking the, you know, they're thinking the ones that the capital rule. Yeah. No. Yeah. I think to me, that's one of the ideas behind, you know, in our going in our coffee. It's, it's me. It's just an individual trying to create something, and I'm not looking to be anybody's boss. It's just seeking freedom. Really? It's, it's using the market to make capital, I guess, or make money to sustain a life, right? And can it be done? It really all of this is an experiment. For me. You know, it's I mean, life's one giant experiment. I think. But. You know, that's that's the idea behind it in. And I never you know, so just, you know, you've opened my eyes to something, which is, you know, people who are socialist, see or, or whatever, whatever spectrum Yourann or whatever flavor you, you. They see capitalism as the person with the capital, the actually guys that some some conspiracy airy stotka by outright, the Roth bards the guys with the big money, the multimillionaires, right, the people, you know, I hate sometimes. Right. Because they're super-rich. It's like and that actually how cons define capitalism, if you write a Gore's, writing Konkan define capitalism, and he actually even though he considered himself, Roth party. Anti capitalist. Yeah. I haven't dug into too many a gorse I liked the idea of Gore's when I discovered it, I think the first time I heard it would was from the Corbett report. And I was like. Right. And I'm trying to practice it and, and I've got a book from liberty under attack publications but I've got too many books read in so much to do. Actually, I'm in the middle of a renegade history of United States that is Russell right now. And so just trying to expand my mind and just again looking for freedom. So the last thing on touch on as just doing research about the libertarian antifascist committee, there was this article in off. You know, you probably as you said, there are many founders co founders of the libertarian anti fascist committee. But there's this article on the libertarian vindicator, and there was this one post, I guess that deliver -tarian antifascist committee made on possibly Twitter might have been taken down, or whatever it's an interesting cartoon, it's Ron Paul. I don't know if you've. Seen it. With it looks, it just says, hashtag anti Fash, F, A, S, H. And then it says what it what it's just my old lab coat. I haven't practicing years, so it's Ron Paul Allen owning the clam RAB, and he's that climbs. It's looks like doctors clan clan row when he takes he is taking off a hat. So like for somebody particularly the, the hard core libertarians. They some of them worship. Ron paul. You know, in even for me, you know, when I, I sort, I was like, what the fuck, you know, kinda like you get this angry. You get triggered right pitcher, which is insanity. It's just pixels. No reason to get triggered. But I.

"Entrepreneurship. Awesome. So yeah, what brought you to the liberty movement. I was always working in free market on endeavors in Florida and. You know, I was looking to change my life and added an activist events. Basically, my head kept seeing this one particular guy at a few events in. Eventually he came up to me in asked me, he says. So you must be moving to New Hampshire to and I was like what's in New Hampshire, and he was like the Free State project. And I was like why there's people in New Hampshire and. And I looked up real quick. And I was here for months later. Awesome. Yeah. They are people here in New Hampshire, and there are some pretty awesome people here in New Hampshire. So you are. You moved here purposely for the Free State movement. Correct. That is correct. And what attracted you to the Free State project. At the time that I it was the heyday of 'Damul Freeman in Peter Peter era, and they were on doing some interesting work on voluntary living in spreading the message on they were getting ready to go on liberty on tour where they have a RV, and they took all around the country. Right. A pencil or fast. And that seemed like lots of fun was fascinating to me. I had kind of been watching a lucrative ski. And we are changed. So, you know, I was interested in this kind of like, independent media activism, and you know, disobeying bad law and just kind of. Creating a way to get the message out. In interesting ways. And so there was a lot of action going on in Keene at that time that I was watching them. It definitely shifted to Manchester right around the time that I moved and since then, but yeah, that was all really fascinating to me. I am, you know, being in the free market and stuff like goes, always interested in innovating ways out of basically nothing. So watching people just kind of get together figure out how es projects word was really fascinating to me. Yeah. There is something very entrepreneurial about the the entire movement. Is there? Yeah. Absolutely. I love all of the projects have been started here. So you have a project of your own love Java. What is love Java? Love Java is basically a combination of two really powerful products. And to really exciting emerging markets coming together in one product, and that would be the butter coffee product. And the CDs butter coffee is already a thing. It's a niche market like a life hack is especially attractive to people that are into paleo living or Tito, diet or any other type of file low parv type lifestyle, whole foods even. Gives you lots of physical and mental power, and you can balance your hormone Dowell, reduce painting nation exerting sorry and the weight loss market, though is absolutely huge and having coffee for breakfast. He can melt up to a pound of out of date that is just the butter coffee loan then two years ago, which started like seven years ago, and then two years ago, I discovered CD's and my gave some samples to some see me business owners in they immediately came back to me and said you have to put CDs in the sputtered copy stuff then. So then that was born, and I already thought butter coffee was magical enough. And now, I just wonder what can this stuff not he'll on so many different people with so many different health concerns, and is like gold. Love it. I'm so happy. To be able to do this work and a people experience benefits and upgrade their lives. So what brought you to? Start love Java. Well, just one. My started drinking butter coffee, and I started feeling better mmediately, and I just told the couple of friends that I had tried it today had similar experiences in the nice started selling it. Community of vents and at festivals such as forecast in the summer. It was just. Consistently amazing. So for everyone involved, and so just you know, got into some other festivals and explored other community events and Canada's festivals and health food festivals. And I realized that I am still way ahead of the market. CD's are still emerging butter coffee, still enlarging and even seeming the edible type products are pretty much. Just Medicated junk food right now still there is hardly any siemian few superfoods, and once we get to that level. My head explodes thinking about how many people are going to be able to heal so many things and offer their dependencies to junk food, and pharmaceuticals and alcohol and all kinds of stuff, right? So I I recently discovered CBD. And I the discovery for me was to cope with. Stress in his -iety. And of course, I was given the mainstream or, you know, the per year Prozac from the doctor like oh here take this. And that's stuff is very hard to get off of and. And so the CB seeing help to kind of get off of that stuff. But recently, I had a friend who tried to sample pack of CD, and he said it was no different to him than taking IB. Pro fin. What? Do you think there is this placebo effect with CBD? I mean from what I read there seems to be a science to it. And I guess what I'm getting at is.
