"george shultz" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"FM and AM a 20. NPR News and the New York conversation W N Y. C is supported, but Cowan Liebowitz in them. This is all things Considered from NPR News. I'm Michelle Martin. Former Secretary of State George Shultz died yesterday at the age of 100. Over the course of his remarkable career, He held four Cabinet level positions in Republican administrations, Labor Secretary Treasury secretary and budget director under President Nixon. Then, for six years, he served Ronald Reagan as secretary of state. Where he earned a reputation as both a statesman and a pragmatist. I think if you talk to his peers in terms of fellow secretaries of state, and I've talked to all of them You would find a great deal of respect and admiration for the way he managed to stick it out through these stormy times in the Reagan administration and end up prevailing, that's Philip Taubman. He covered Schultz as a reporter for The New York Times and is now writing his biography his opponents in the Reagan administration. They would have described him as obstinate, stubborn, bullheaded and wrongheaded. Most of them saw him as a peacenik. Much of that divide was about the Soviet Union, a subject that would later unite Reagan and Schultz and lead to an easing of diplomatic tensions between two nuclear powers. He was a consummate problem solver. And that's what he did. And all of those Cabinet jobs and in the at the end of the day, I think it's fair to say that he helped solve the biggest problem that the world faced in the second half of the 20th Century, which was the Cold War that problem solving began with relationships. First, he had to guide Reagan, who had surrounded himself with anti Communist hardliners. Board more moderate policies. One turning point came in February of 1983 with a snowstorm. Canceling a trip to camp David. Nancy Reagan invited the Schultz is to dinner. So the shelter's managed to get to the White House through the snow, and they had dinner in the family quarters upstairs, And it was really the first time that he and Reagan had a chance to talk about. The Soviet Union and a kind of calm, quiet way. And he realized at that point That Reagan and he were on the same wavelength about wanting to moderate the Cold War. Schultz used his relationships to influence big policies. But Talman says Schultz enjoyed the personal aspects of diplomacy and he would talk about the people. That he helped during that period of secretary of state and he always would start with Eden knew Del, who was a Soviet citizen at the time, a Jew who could not emigrate from the Soviet Union and George worked hard to try to get even knew Del free to emigrate to Israel. And she was allowed to emigrate. And this was how George saw the world. Yes, there were these big geopolitical issues and strategies that he dealt with. But at the end of the day what he thought was really important was his ability. To spread freedom to places where it had never existed before and tell, Min says that outlook and shelters personal approach to diplomacy are enduring parts of his legacy. One was an important moment when Edward Shevardnadze had just become the Soviet foreign minister. And Schultz realized there might be a change in personality. So when the two men met for the first time at a conference in Helsinki, Finland, And the first thing that George Schultz did when he entered the hall was not to go and sit in his seat in the front row, but to go and put down his papers and climb up the auditorium. The top row where the Soviet delegation was seated. And to greet Shevardnadze. And that was a personal gesture. That really meant a lot to Shevardnadze. And I can tell you how much Their relationship meant because long after The demise of the Soviet Union. I went to interview him about Schultz, and he told his aide to get some papers. And they were Christmas cards that George and Charlotte Shultz had sent him over the past decade. And he had kept them and he said, You know, George and I were like soul mates. That's Talman. He is currently working on a biography of former secretary of State Treasury and Labor George Shultz, who died yesterday at the age of 100. In the early days of the Corona virus pandemic.

Challenges Await Next Treasury Head
"Former federal reserve chair janet yellen has been at the forefront of us economic policy for decades. If she's confirmed as treasury secretary she'll be taking on a new role during a time of deep political division and significant economic challenges. Joining me now to talk more about yellen's career and the roadblocks she could face going forward his wall street journal senior writer john hills and wrath. Hi john thanks for being here her. They're great to be here. So john janet yellen if confirmed would make history here as the first woman to lead the treasury after also being the first woman to lead the federal reserve. Tell us more about her extensive resume and what's led up to this moment. I don't think that's the big history being made here. The big history is that she's the first human regardless of gender to be treasury secretary chairman of the council of economic advisers and federal reserve chairwoman. So she's had a tri factor. If you add in the fact that she's also a tenured professor from berkeley then. She's hit a grand slam. This is an achievement that no person regardless of gender has achieved and the realm of economic policy. Making you know. I compare her to george shultz the republican. Who served as secretary of state for ronald reagan and also treasury secretary secretary of labor and director of management budget under richard nixon. This is just a person with about as complete resumes. You can get so. Let's talk a little bit about her previous roles as opposed to what treasury secretary rigby much less political role than treasury secretary. What about her past experiences in washington have prepared her for that. And where might we see some challenges if for her taking on a more political role. The fed is a very close in academic place. They kind of pride themselves on not getting into the mix of political debates and being. I wouldn't even say bipartisan. But eighty partisan nonpartisan. Janet yellen did serve as the chair of the council of economic advisers in the clinton administration in the late nineteen ninety s so. She has had exposure to political debates with big personalities. It's interesting though. She's married to george echo off. Who is a nobel prize winning economist in his own right and when he won the nobel prize back in two thousand and one he wrote in his autobiography about the challenges that she faced kind of managing the point ical heat waves of washington the role. He played in supporting her so she's walking in to an environment right now. That is going to be very heated in very point ical. There's gonna be a lot of fights over how much spending the government should do to get the economy out of recession and how much debt it should take on in the process. And she's going to be right in the middle of it. She's a very highly credentialed individual. And i think our challenge is going to be managing the human part of it the political part of it with republicans on capitol hill and the inevitable divisions that are gonna show up inside the biden administration itself. How do you think she will work with congress. She has support among democrats and republicans. Well you know. She knows her way around washington. That's clear and as fed chair. She did have to deal with congress. She had to go up there and testify on a regular basis to give reports on the economy and monetary policy and regulatory policy. So she knows her way around capitol hill one of the reasons that i think that president elect biden chose her is a because it does seem like she's going to have buy in from the progressive wing of the democratic party. She's actually very close to elizabeth warren and also moderates among democrats and then i would say she has a chance with some moderate republicans to try to win them over republicans in the senate in particular to try to win them over on some big debates. And that's where. I think she's going to end up focusing a lot of her attention. You know if she can hold the democratic party if i should say biden can and then win a couple of middle of the road republicans than they might be able to get their way on really big questions about fiscal policy and stimulus and driving this economy out of recession. That was really devastating and twenty twenty and that brings us to some of the key challenges. What do you think some of her first actions will be treasury secretary. And what are those big challenges. She'll be facing from the start. There's so much and this is one of the issues where the job. The treasury is much different than the job at the fed. The job at the fed comes down to two or three things. They gotta make a decision. Every eight weeks about whether interest rates should stay the same or go up a little or go down a little. And then they've got to be they're very involved in the regulation and oversight of banks and then they've got to be ready to deal with crises financial crises at the treasure. You have the tax portfolio you have sanctioned portfolio with international sanctions against countries like north korea and iran. You have the debt portfolio. You have some say in the budget. Portfolio is just a very wide and expansive portfolio. I think the first thing that she's going to confront is a decision that her predecessor will have made. Steven mnuchin called on the fed just a few days ago to end some rescue programs that were aimed at small and medium-sized businesses related to corona virus. The treasury had been designated some money to contribute to the fed program and secretary mnuchin said. The program had expired in the feds gutter return. What's left of the money but you know the new treasury secretary is going to have to decide whether the end that program as mnuchin has set out to do or renew it when that gets to the bigger issue. which is the economy itself. Is it a major crossroads right now. We had a devastating downturn the economy effectively shut in march and april it reopened. We had a very large bounce back in the summer. But it shows signs of slowing. And it's incomplete this recovery at a time when the corona virus is spreading again. Some states are putting in new restrictions on economic activity and there is a race for a vaccine to control the virus. So there's just so much happening right now and it's gonna be yelling role to guide. President elect biden on how hard the government should push to help the economy through a period where it can go one of two directions. It could go back into recession. Or if we get to vaccine quickly enough we could be into. You know a really strong extension of the recovery that we had earlier this summer. So there's just a lot of uncertainty and a lot hard choices to
Pompeo Attempts To Cement Trump's Legacy In Israel Ahead Of A Biden Presidency
"Workers at the Capitol are dressing up the West Front for Joe Biden's inauguration, members of the current administration are rushing to cement Donald Trump's policies in place. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo was in the Middle East. This past week, he unveiled new pro Israel policies that could be hard for an incoming Biden administration to undo NPR's Daniel Estrin reports from Jerusalem. Compelled, became the first secretary of state to visit an Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. He had lunch at a winery that named one of its wines, Pompeo. The U. S used to take a dim view of settlements, seeing their growth as an obstacle to peace because they take up land Palestinians claim for an independent state. But Pompeo says Israel has a right to settle the land featured in the Bible for a long time State Department. Took the wrong view of settlements. It took of you that didn't recognize the history of this special place. Pompeo announced a new policy favoring the winery He visited products made in West Bank settlements must be labeled made in Israel when shipped to the U. S. A ghetto front with peace now and Israeli group against Settlements says this could make it hard for consumers who don't want to support settlements if people want to boycott Or not to participate in the occupation. They can do it by not buying products from settlements. This is going to be labors that his friends and they cannot know if it's from occupied territories. Then. Boyce is being revealed all of Israel. Pompeo announced another new policy last week. Today. I want to make one announcement with respect to a decision by the State Department that we will regard The global any Israel BDS campaign as anti Semetic BDS has boycott divestment and sanctions, a movement that calls to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians. Some Israel supporters see it as a threat because some boycotters oppose Israel itself as a Jewish state, But boycott activists say it's a non violent form of protest. So why unveil these new policies right before Biden takes over. Dead. Ravi V. And Israeli settler leader close to the Trump administration says Pompeo is playing chess with Biden one step before Checkmate. It's putting buy them some sort of check. If you really reversed his decision that were done by the constant ministrations. You might have to confront criticism. As to why doing it. Other administrations have taken steps on Israeli Palestinian policy right before leaving office, like when President Obama allowed the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel's settlements. Scott Lisinski was an adviser for the Obama administration. President Clinton himself using his presidential transition, trying to move Middle East peace forward George Shultz at the end of the Reagan presidency. Negotiating a very careful formal diplomatic dialogue, the first ever between American and Palestinian leaders. These are examples of diplomatic opportunism. Palestinian leaders see this as their opportunity to make nice with Biden. They've agreed to resume security and economic ties with Israel after a six month stand still, and they say they might change a practice, Democrats criticized paying stipends to Palestinians convicted of attacking Israelis. Many Palestinians criticized the gestures like former Minister Nabil Armor in this video he posted. He had the infertile into Paloma that America, he says. Why give more ground before Biden enters office, while Israel is taking advantage of this time to announce more settlement construction. Israel got another boost yesterday with news that the U. S. Justice Department decided not to renew restrictions on the parole of former U. S intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard. He was convicted of espionage for giving classified U. S documents to Israel and is now expected to move to Israel where he has popular support.

Dean Phillips' case for a carbon fee to tackle climate change
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy, initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation in and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs. Bank of America NA member FDIC, Representative Phillips, let's start with the nuts and bolts of the proposed carbon dividend act. What would it accomplish will Pol it's going to accomplish what I think we need most which is to provide incentives and disincentives, and then let the market move us to where we want to go which is to reduce CO two emissions and migrate to a clean energy economy. There seems to be universal agreement on that. And the notion that I'm co-sponsoring is the energy innovation and carbon dividend act. And it would put a price on carbon which is actually a bipartisan notion, I want people to know that the Genesis is as much Republican as it is democratic and in this case, we're proposing a fifteen dollar per ton fee on. Carbon and that would be entirely returned that the proceeds which could be about eighty billion dollars in the first year. I would be returned holy to taxpayers to the tune of about a thousand dollars per year for each family, and it and and the cost of fossil fuel products would rise as a result. For example, a gallon of gasoline may go up about thirteen cents based on the fee in the first year again that money's returned in the form of a dividend to all taxpayers, and it's a way to start putting a disincentive on further fossil fuel use and migrate to clean energy. I it's a simple notion. It's a market base notion. It does not grow government, and it reduces our carbon emissions, and that is exactly the type of policy thoughtful bipartisan policy that I think we need. So here's a clip from your press release quote carbon dividend trust fund for the American people to encourage market-driven innovation clean, energy technologies and market. Efficiencies. So we create this fund is your proposal. And then the money goes into that fund. What are some examples than of how that fun would be used to drive more technology that could help lower greenhouse gas emissions? So so pollen in this case all the money in this proposal that I'm co-sponsoring all the dollars would go back to American citizens. And and that's what's unique about it. It does not grow government. And it does not provide more dollars to federal programs, for example, and and those dollar what people do with those dollars of courses up to them. I of course, I think it will spur investment, and it will create a number of millions of perhaps over two million green energy jobs, but it's not a trust fund to benefit any thing or anybody other than tax payers right now. Now, I will say I'm also giving some thought to whether or not we should modestly increase that that fee and direct some of the proceeds to an infrastructure Bill as you might know. Speaker Pelosi and mature minority leader Schumer met with President Trump in the White House this week, they agreed on a two trillion dollar infrastructure plan that right now has no funding. And I think this could be an interesting way to accomplish both because we surely need both you mentioned by partisan support. Do you think you'll get the necessary votes to get this through and perhaps make it law? We'll tell you Paul nothing as you. Well know, nothing is easy and congress, but that's a challenge that I'm taking seriously, and and very optimistic about and this is a unique Bill in that it has a number of cosponsors everyone from Barbara Lee who is one of the more progressive members of the democratic caucus to Francis Rooney the Republican from Florida, it's a notion that the American Enterprise Institute, the conservative think tank supports and even supported by George Shultz and Howard Baker former secretaries of state who devised a very similar plan with their group called the climate leadership council and it. Is it is remarkably bipartisan, and it's one that I think I think it is the most likely to generate support on both sides of the aisle. But like anything else it has to be sold. It has to be promoted, and we not just those in congress. But we in our communities have to start promoting the solution to one another. We're going to build a consensus to get it done. We've seen tremendous progress Representative Phillips in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the electric power sector. We see Minnesota producing twenty five percent of our electric power from renewable 's it seems like the biggest opportunity now for further reductions is in transportation, how does America achieve similar reductions in the transportation sector over the next decade? Why favor first of all I favor. Notions li-. I think we should have a prominent very innovative high speed rail network in the United States our competitors around the world have surpassed us broadly. So doing would significantly reduce emissions and also. Provide a very high speed very connected America too many who right now don't have access to transportation. And then this this notion of pricing carbon begins it provides disincentive to consume fossil fuel. So it will in theory, reduce force both businesses and individuals to look for more efficient, modes of transportation. And this is this is a way to begin the migration. It is not a mandate. It is not an iron fist at a simply putting a price on something that has a significant cost to us now in an extraordinary cost down the road. And that's because it's market based the market should figure it out. And I'm a believer in that. And it will so ill do the same in transportation. I'm curious about the political winds in the Republican party in Washington DC, some of your colleagues in the congress, we hear some people voicing more support and more understanding that these extreme weather events. On the rise. And that that's turning costly for us. Do you sense that even behind the scenes, what will your colleagues say to you in terms of how they are viewing the current climate change situation and how we might be impacted by that going forward. We'll pollen it's becoming undeniable. And if people wish to argue the reasons why they can do so, but it is time that we acknowledged truth. We'd take some bold stands, and I can tell you in my private conversations with of course, democratic colleagues in an increasing number of my thoughtful Republican colleagues, you know, we acknowledge what's going on. And it is affecting deeply effecting American communities throughout the country from the heartland to the coasts, and it's real I'm sure that in no small part Francis, Rooney from Florida, the Republican from Florida is supporting this notion because he sees what's happening in his state with that said it takes leadership, and it takes consensus to get this done. I in and my hope is that our Republican colleagues. Start lining up to support something that again has some has Republican Genesis, and that means pricing carbon and letting the market take charge. That is actually the way we build bridges and congress and throughout this country. So I'm hopeful we're not there yet. But it's these conversations both on the airwaves in neighborhoods and called the sank. So we have to start having. Let's talk about opportunity a change even climate change can sometimes bring opportunity one example, this jobs, boom that we've seen with renewable energy could climate change solutions. Be our next economic moonshot. I think there's no question. Some studies indicate that if we pass this Bill the energy innovation and carbon dividend act that that could spur over two million new jobs. I think that will be happening anyway because we are migrating. The good news is we have thoughtful enterprises around the country. Excel energy is taking a bold stand to invest in renewables in no small part because we provided in. Enters over the last number of years for them to do the same thing. So I do I think I think we're on path. And I think there's an opportunity here that every state whether it's a red state or blue state can recognize that not only will these green energy jobs be more prevalent, but they will be high paying jobs, and if we can create a thoughtful strategy as Americans to provide the right training to young people to enter this enter these new jobs that are created everybody wins, and there is a way to do. So and I can tell you also as a new member of congress I've been very pleased with the clergy -ality between members of both sides of the aisle, especially in our freshman class. And I think there's a new ethos a new spirit, and I think over time we are going to join hands and build a better economy and most importantly, reduce our emissions and preserve our planet for children, grandchildren. We're seeing shifts in climate change opinion. Now, Yale and George Mason study says now that six in ten Americans are either concerned or alarmed. About climate change. What do you hear from Minnesotans about the desire for climate change action? I hear every day from people throughout our state. Not just in my district that this is important to them. And I'll tell you who's making the most difference in congress right now. It's young people. We see young people from middle schoolers through high school and college students in the halls of congress all the time coming to our offices and making very impassioned pleas that we do something. And that makes me optimistic you know, Minnesotans have taken have taken conservation seriously for many years, we we love our environment. It is not political. And I think Minnesota can be a real bellwether state for the rest of the country in in leading that change. But as Americans we are very good at often pointing out at least from a policy perspective where we're quite adept at pointing out problems now is the time for solutions. And I'm one who wants to listen to any solutions. I don't care what the Genesis is Minnesotans are the same way. We listened to the. Ideas, we tend to implement them. And I think we I hope the country will look to us and I wanted to be a leader. And that's my intention. We have a lot of successful fortune five hundred companies based in Minnesota, and I've interviewed several executives from those companies take a company like general mills it's been around for one hundred and fifty years and they used to produce their grain by milling with power from the Mississippi River and they're moving forward on climate solutions. We see this with a lot of companies, in fact, that momentum seems to be much stronger than the momentum in Washington. Is there a disconnect there, and do you think your colleagues that have been reluctant are seeing these corporations move forward and his that possibly an example for them. They there's a disconnect pollen and I recognize it as well. And I've spoken with a number of CEO's of our state's largest enterprises and reminded them of of not just their responsibility. But the opportunity that exists for them to influence policy makers, and that's happening. And I could the list of. American corporations and multinational corporations that support the notion of pricing carbon would surprise a lot of people, including some of the biggest energy companies. So that is a massive opportunity. And by by the way, that's part of a bigger conversation about business being the sources a source of solutions for this country and not the source of problems. And you know, I wanna see this country move to compassionate capitalism, and what a wonderful and beautiful way to start with affecting climate change policy. And I do see the day coming and I'm speaking with a number though, CEO's both here and around the country, and I'm hoping we can mobilise finally the house passed a Bill I believe this week that would keep the US in the Paris agreement. What are the chances of that given the landscape of the Senate and the White House these days while given the landscape of the Senate and the White House? Unfortunately, the answer is unlikely and it's appalling, the the United States of America should be not just at the table, Paul. We should be leading that is the America in which I grew up. It is what I aspire to. And I will say though that the the power to proceed if you will really lies in in the hands of of every American to remind the representatives, not just in Washington, but in their own state houses that this is important, and that's the that's the type of American leadership. I want to reconstitute realestate. And I I do think we're going to get there. I don't think in this congress because of the circumstances in the Senate and the White House, but over time we shall this is a statement of principles. That's the statement of the democratic party's principles that this is important, and I also see foresee that climate change and addressing it with thoughtful policy is going to be one of the big drivers of the twenty twenty election. I hope it is deserves to be because I think it's an existential threat and not just to this nation, but surely to the entire world US house district. Three Representative dean Phillips. Thank you for your perspective on climate cast today. Thank you very much.
$1 Billion Downfall: Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos
"By the way, I was doing my. Elizabeth Holmes voice because I watched that documentary last night. I don't know if you've done that. Have you watched that HBO documentary called the inventor out for blood and Silicon Valley, it's about the woman who was behind? She really was theranos that company that said with prick on your finger. You'll get a drop of blood and be able to test for all sorts of diseases and ailments who's going to revolutionize the world. She was the Stephen judge was the Bill gate. She was the Archimedes. I mean, she was like one of these great transformative human figures, she was a fraud. She was a sham the book about that by John Kerry, you which is referenced considerably in. The doc is really the go to source for me. There was an article in the New Yorker, the book followed that now the documentary, then a feature film, when we interview John from the Wall Street Journal about this his I think reporting telling of it was really really good. And you know, how the books are always better than the movie. This really is a classic case. And point the documentaries. Good, and she's she's bizarre. And it's it's fine. But it to me it leaves more questions unanswered than it does answer. And the big one is what was her motive was. She scam artists from the beginning. Or was she just faking it until she could make it were her intention sincere producer Griffin doesn't think that that's as critical a question at the end of the day that technology would not did not in does not work. It doesn't exist in the real world. And it was a scam. Whether she intended it to be or not, I think that's a distinction worth pursuing. But one of the really interesting parts about the documentary is that the old white men lover here. She is this twenty year old blonde with really red lipstick on and she's thin, and she wears dark turtlenecks the way Steven Jobs did and Oliver closer that way. You know, why she dresses that way? Not because she wants to emulate her hero that would be almost juvenile. But no because she's so focused on the corporation.

"York. Former secretary of state, George Shultz and. Actor singer and dancer, Dick Van Dyke. I'm Mitch Davis. And that's your on this date update. Welcome back to the LARs Larson show. It's a pleasure to be with you on a Thursday night. Don't forget every first amendment Friday. We open up the phone lines and every subject is fair game. And the rest of the week naysayers go to the head of the line now. Megan Barth is not a naysayer she's the founder and proprietor of Reagan, baby dot com. We probably agree on many more things than we ever disagree on. She's the founder of red wave America pack, and the co chair of the media equality project media quality project. Megan, I'm not sure we got one sort of conservative outlet in FOX and everything else is liberal. I don't think you're media quality. I if that's what it was intended effects is is working too. Well, sorry to say, but we're we're turning it into a C four, and we actually do consulting projects PR projects, and that's kind of what four red wave America's. Well. And then we have an activist network about one hundred thousand people on the ground and on our Facebook page and so. You know, when we make a call to action, we can get it on the ground when we need it. Now. It's a good thing. I mean, you could just get Don lemon, and maybe meek aversion ski in a couple of those fired. Maybe we could get more conservative quality going on. But it's a pleasure to have you on. I wanted to get your comments on the Michael Cohen story right now, the president's former lawyer now going off to prison for a few years. I guess he thought he was going to get a lot more leniency than he got. He gets thirty six months in jail for a series of crimes most of which the most serious ones had absolutely nothing to do with Donald Trump. They had to do with the fact that Konno's attacks cheat. And apparently, they leaned on him hard gel all the dirt he had on Donald Trump, which appears to be not so much. But what's your take? Well, they not only leaned on him hard. But they also rated his law office, and then a judge Kimba Wood who was presiding over. What I would say as an illegal raid said, okay? No. The the Mueller team in the southern district of New York lawyers. You know, Lanny Davis who's the fixer for Michael Cohen and his lawyer. They can go through and say, what's important. What's not give us a break? Right. So I go and Google Michael Cohen, sentencing pretty analogous bias there. I to see what comes up first thing that comes up. Michael Cohen sentenced to three years after implicating Trump in hush money candle. Geez. That headline even come close to the truth. Nope, not even close. And that's one of the reasons why I started my own blog called Reagan baby dot com because I was not truth in the headline. And I knew that had lines were being created in order to create a perception a narrative, the people if you will that the New York Times speed garbage too. And of course, this was the headline of the New York Times. Michael Cohen sentenced to three years after implicating Trump in hush money scandal. They still want you to believe that this was some sort of campaign finance by elation that he's getting three years for now. It was for tax evasion. Like, you mentioned it has absolutely nothing to do with the Russian collusion investigation of fewer. But Michael Cohen took it a step further showing you the filthy rap that he has what he did is he probably on the encouragement of Lanny Davis again..
