"Against monkeypox and 9200 appointments for doses were snapped up in minutes last night. New York City has by far the largest number of cases in the state, the CDC has ordered two and a half million doses of the vaccine. That's on top of two and a half million that were ordered on July 1st, nearly 33,000 of those doses will arrive in New York next week, according to governor hochul. Mayor Eric Adams says the city needs more. New Jersey has launched its new suicide hotline, those experiencing a mental health crisis will be able to call 9 8 8 four immediate help. 9 8 8 allows us to do is to begin to develop a mobile healthcare unit mental healthcare unit throughout the state, which will help individuals in your communities, keep people out of hospitals and the criminal justice system. Assembly speaker Craig Coughlin says the network will give residents universal access to dozens of local independent crisis centers that provide on the spot guidance and direct callers to further care. New Jersey is investing nearly $29 million into the phone line that provides service in English and Spanish while the state works to expand language options. Prospects receded for a full percentage point rate hike by the Federal Reserve this month is as to officials declined to endorse such a move more from Bloomberg's Charlie poet. Speaking separately, Atlanta fed president Rafael bostic voiced wearing a super sized increase and St. Louis's Jim bullard said he will defer judgment to the Central Bank's policy meeting later this month. He was quoted last week of saying he favored sticking with a 75 basis point rate increase despite a hot waiting for June consumer prices. Bloomberg's Charlie pellet. Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. I'm Susanna Palmer. This is Bloomberg. You're listening to masters in business with Barry rid holds on Bloomberg radio. I'm Barry holtz, you're listening to masters in business on Bloomberg radio, my extra special guest this week is anti Oman. He is the co head of portfolio solutions at AQR. He is also the author of a new book, investing amid low expected returns, so let's talk a little bit about low expected returns. We already talked about the impacts on fed rates, what else goes into driving valuation factors that can lower future expected returns. So it really depends on what horizon we talk about. So monetary policy macro conditions are very important for short term, but I think I'd like to focus on real focus in the book mainly on long-term expected returns. And then long-term being three 5 ten years, something like that. And yeah, it's interesting. If you go even further than valuations even don't matter, so everything is gets diluted. And then you have to think about what some theoretical number. So for ten years ahead, then starting its evaluations are essential. And again, so I think those are very helpful anchor for thinking about those returns, even though you can get this very ugly forecast there are what happened in the last decade. But when such something happens, then it pretty much stores problem for the future. So last decade, as it's rich and it has meant that you are going to have even more problems in those future returns. And I think the only way you can sort of solve the low expected return problem here is at least for risky assets is that there would be this much faster growth. This techno optimism that you will get in some quarters and the rest could be, but we've had we've had wonderful technological advances last hundred years. And 2% real growth is pretty much as good as it gets. And that's the interesting thing because you talk in the book about very often mom and pop investors, individual investors tend to confuse GDP growth with expected returns, academically, we know there's almost no correlation between the two is that. It's surprising that whether you look at over time in one country or you look at across countries, the relation is very modest and my favorite poster boy on that one is China which had this 30 years of very fast growth. And for equity investors, it was a really sorry story. Yeah, no, it was a lost opportunity. If you piled into China in 1990, you missed a lot of opportunity elsewhere in the world. It's quite amazing. And there are some stories why that's why that's the case, like basically one logic is a GDP growth, doesn't capture how the pie is shared between corporates and so on. And that's a different sector composition. Public versus unlisted sectors. All kinds of questions like this that can then mechanically explain why this happens, but it is a weird result. And it's understandable. And I think it commonly motivates people to look for those fast growing countries and taking it for granted that that's a good deal. So when we're thinking about various asset classes, how does cash work into that allocation strategy is that a legitimate asset class or is it just a drag on future returns? Except for years like 2022. Well, even in 2022, again, in relative sense caches, of course, doing fine, but real returning cash is whatever -5% is established to be better than even more price various results. And so I think one interesting thing is that you need to have some market timing ability, I think, to make cash useful and use it almost as an option. And then it matters whether you have got some interesting yeast levels, 20 years ago, you had that three, 4% real return cash, not around in this situation. So I do think that the main story with cash sees, like you said, there's something about the dragon it dilutes, it's not a very great diversifier it dilutes the performance. It would be good if you have got some great market timing skills, but let's be humble about it. Often I even say that cash may be best used as a basically on the other side, like you want to use it for leverage for some long shot strategies. And so that may be helpful answer what you do with that. In the book, I like the way you describe certain investor types based on their future liabilities. So pensions and endowments to find benefit plans, you point out that they're particularly sensitive to low expected returns. Tell us what makes them so susceptible is it the future liabilities they have, why is merely the concept of lower expected returns so problematic for them? Yeah, well I think it is for any investor, but if you have made some commitments for the future, then it is maybe more legally binding and that makes it tougher than for somebody who can who can basically adjust expectations or try to just live through these things without sort of recognizing the low expected return until somewhere far into the future. So let's talk about foreign to the future. How long should we expect lower returns for? Is this a question of quarters or years and decades? I do think that we are now in this fast pain situation where we will probably get more we will surely get more monetary policy tightening and I suspect that the latest latest market positivity is maybe way too optimistic. I think you will

"Julie Ryan. And I'm Susanna Palmer in the Bloomberg newsroom. With 461 cases of monkeypox reported in New York City officials are struggling to meet the band for the vaccine. After 9200 appointments released on Friday evening, we're all filled up in just 7 minutes. Mayor Eric Adams says he hopes Washington can do more to get the city the vaccines it needs. We hoping that they are going to hear us and bring in the numbers that we need. Governor Kathy hochul says there are tens of thousands of additional doses of monkeypox vaccine on the way in the coming days. A Rikers Island detainee died Friday, bringing the total deaths among people being held by New York City's troubled jail system to 11 so far this year. We get more about it from Bloomberg's Charlie pellet. The death has spurred another round of calls from criminal justice reform advocates for more accountability and oversight of the city's jails, which face a threat of federal oversight. The city has embarked on a 5 month turnaround plan to try to stem violence and unsafe conditions at its facilities. Bloomberg's truly pellet. Well, if you're going to the beach this weekend, make sure to be on the lookout for sharks, at least 5 people have been bitten by sharks on Long Island in just the last two weeks. Thursday alone, there were 6 shark sightings at tobe beach in Nassau county. People are urged to only swim when there's a lifeguard on duty. Governor hochul signed a wide ranging no smoking bill yesterday. It prohibits smoking in all state owned beaches, boardwalks, marinas, playgrounds, and recreation centers and group camps.

"Trying to do the right thing for people trying to do the right thing for those in our state who usually get the short end of the stick who don't have a lot of money behind them, but don't have a lot of power. That's the job of an elected official. In my view, is give the power to those people who don't otherwise have it. The rich people, they can handle themselves. They know how to influence elections and influence decision makers. With their money and I don't think that's a good thing, but they certainly don't need extra help. But people who have trouble paying their rent and an increasingly unaffordable city. Or people who are being abused in the workplace and are not allowed to organize properly, which we're dealing with, that one of our local Starbucks right now, in fact, those are the people that I try and stand up for and use the power I have to advance their interests. That's always been a case no matter what my district is looked like. And so now I still have about half of the district I currently represent and then the new parts I will work hard to let them know what I'm doing to try and improve their lives. As you're speaking with people, I imagine in some parts of this new district, especially that, well, imagine in various parts of this district, bail reform must come up. And in some parts of the district, people want to know why the legislature agreed to certain rollbacks changes to the law two different times. Now the second time this year under governor hochul, and then some parts of the district, you'll probably hear people saying, you know, what are you doing with this bail reform? And you need to repeal the whole reforms you did. And give judges more discretion and lock more people up. How are you navigating the changes that have been made? And that issue being one of the leaders on the bail reform issue and compromises that have been reached and they haven't necessarily as you've explained even to me on this show in the past. You've reached compromises that were not necessarily your full loaf that you wanted. But how are you, how are you talking specifically about that issue to voters, either in this district or anywhere else? Well, you're right, the legislative process is not unilateral. It wasn't designed to be that way before a number of people of different viewpoints have to agree to get to a conclusion and so we do the best we can. But there's been no issue I've ever dealt with that has been so misrepresented that the bail issue. And when you sit across the table from someone and you explain to them what it's really about, the fact that people who have means and have wealth are on the streets regardless, no matter what they're charged with, and those who are poor do not get that opportunity, the unfairness of that is evident to people once you get into that kind of a conversation. Now that being said, there's situations like the changes we just made because we're always trying to learn and improve where someone who is repeat offending over and over and over again while they're out. Obviously should be treated differently and we now have taken steps to deal with that circumstance. But the overall issue of whether we should require people to pay for their freedom before they're convicted of a crime is once you scratch the service and actually learn about it. Pretty clear where justice lies, these are people who have not been convicted of crimes. We're taught since we're children in this country.

Naomi Wolf: We’re Now in the Last Stage of a Tyrannical Takeover

"Doctor wolf, you wrote recently about how we're at the final tenth stage. Can you tell our audience about that? Sure. So in 2008, I wrote a book called the end of America. It was during the Bush era. And I had studied history times and places in which a totalitarian ruler, whether on the left or the right, sought to crush a democracy or to collapse a weak democracy. And I found that all would be tyrants do the same ten things. They cheat the same ten steps. It's like a map. And so step ten, so it starts with, I won't go through them all, but it starts with invoke a terrifying internal and external threat. It can be a real one like terrorism are now until the week before last, the COVID virus. Then it goes on to step ten, which is martial law. And the end of the rule of law. And that's where we're at. Most people don't know the biggest story of our time, which is that President Biden extended emergency powers for the 8th time in April of this year, but for the first time he extended them with an open ended date. There's no terminus point. And here in New York State, governor hochul restarts emergency law every 30 days. So about 28 states are still under emergency law in the state level and on the national level to have emergency powers means that the president can do things to us that have nothing to do with how our founders set up our system has nothing to do with the consent of the people or even the consent of

"As you mentioned, you know, Democrats have full control of the legislature and the governor's office, but there's elections that we just had that showed some Republican gains in New York. They're obviously making this gubernatorial race a huge focus what's your quick sort of lay of the land of the Republican primary for governor right now? Look, Republicans are energized. And they think they've got the best chance at really holding a good competitive race against a Democrat. And a competitive race they haven't seen since pataky, right? Which over a decade ago. So you've got Lee zeldin, Long Island Republican who has been aligned with Trump, right? But he's also a veteran, he's got some he's got very pro Trump alignments, which will be a negative for him in a general election considering New York is just so blue. But I don't know. I mean, the crime issue is just such a problem in the suburbs and rural rural New York that that could be that could be in his favor. Well, listen, we also saw we even saw some Republican gains in the city, right? Because of issues around public safety and education and others so, you know, I'm definitely among those who think, you know, especially when you don't have an Andrew Cuomo sort of powerhouse on the battle, although Cathy oka with this fundraising, I think, you know, is really showing some strength here. But I'm one who definitely thinks if there's going to be a year where Republicans can kind of feel like they have a shot in a general election for governor. This might be this might be absolutely in a New York City voter is very different from someone on Long Island versus someone in Westchester or in the Hudson valley even, right? Also we shouldn't discount Andrew Giuliani here, by the way. Well, no, so I was just going to get to that too. Andrew Giuliani, and I don't remember what his campaign finance report posted. But not strong. He's got he's got his father's name, right? He's got Rudy Giuliani, who, you know, Rudy Giuliani was someone that was The Shining knight after 9 11, which is just still very near and dear to so many New Yorkers and across the nation. And you know, you talk to people and they really like him he's gregarious. He's somebody that's been out and about. And the name recognition alone could be a huge plus for him. And then you also have rob astorino who ran against Cuomo in 2014. He lost. He also lost reelection bid as Westchester county executive and state Senate. He had a little over a $1 million, I believe in his campaign filings. But he's still in the race. He plans on petitioning his way onto the ballot. And then Liz zeldin reported 5.6 million cash on hand, which rivals swazi actually. So, you know, again, you shouldn't count out the Republicans because again, there was a blood bath on Long Island. You're going to see some trouble for Democrats in suburbia and rural New York and also Kathy hoku. Again, despite her fundraising prowess, you had somebody a New Yorker on what was it jeopardy? Who didn't even know the name. So like her name, you know, we're in this political circle where of course we are following the ins and outs and everything, but like to the average New Yorker, are people watching it as closely, right? Like you had a massive scandal..

"So you have this sort of $2 billion not to be too cynical, but slush fund of sorts, right? That, you know, could absolutely be used to help favor a certain constituency, whether it's outside of government or the legislators that are close to that advocacy area or whoever it might be or just legislators who want a significant priority funded. The rental or landlord relief angle and then the third is what Burnham had mentioned with the excluded workers fund, which governor hok did not is not recommending at this point at least replenishing, but when I had state senator Jessica Ramos on the show last week, she said, she's, you know, she's very focused on trying to get some money in the next budget to replenish that excluded workers fund that is mostly state aid for undocumented New Yorkers who were not eligible for federal relief. So those are a few things that cross my mind. Bernie, you were going to jump in with something I hope I didn't take your thought. No, you didn't know you didn't, but I just wanted to piggyback off of Anna on that 2 billion. That's going to be something to watch the 2 billion dollars in pandemic relief funding, whatever that means. Because I was just on the phone with one of the budget watchdogs that has been looking at this because I was talking about it yesterday and I said, well, I don't understand. Is this new spending that where is this included in the budget? And at that point yesterday, we had not seen the tables. If you look at this year's projections and then on the out ears, there's not really a spot that this $2 billion is and maybe that's again because it hasn't been allocated. We don't know what they're spending it on. But it's not included in the plan. So it's going to be interesting to see if the total overall spending is increased when we see the final budget minted at the end of March early April. But that's just that kind of blank check for the legislature. Technically is showing your cards. She's saying, hey, I have $2 billion, whereas Cuomo used to present a budget. And the legislature, both the Senate and the assembly, they would come back with their tables and say, well, you know, we want spending increased by by $5 billion by $3 billion and then they usually come to an agreement meet halfway or closer to the governor's budget, but hope is saying, hey, I have 2 billion to play with, which, again, could be a good thing, but it could also be, well, you know, if you have this much money and you're giving it around to everybody, well, what about my project? So Anna's point. Curious. Yeah. To Anna's point of it, it is absolutely it's sort of in this theme of a new style, a more collaborative style, but it also, you know, as we were both saying, you know, could have some unintended consequences or stir up some controversy or be seen, you know, cynically and I do want to underscore your point too about this property tax relief, which is basically.

"Anything else you want to highlight right now. I mean there's so much we could get into here but in our last couple minutes anything else. You wanna touch on in terms of sort of whether it's the new governor or other decision makers in state government. You know things you want to stress. That are better important. Will that this is the last gubernatorial election coming up under the old system With no campaign match and so work is going on on slowly but steadily to create that other campaign finances for new york state. Not a huge deal. the right now. It's lying below the radar and really help us do anything to not interfere with what's already going on and keep funding for that going The redistricting process. Probably you know. There's pollock stakeholder groups like ours that support independent redistricting all the good government groups and and it's not very popular frankly with the democratic super majorities in both houses. So we would we would ask them to allow an independent process happened but this is incredibly you know era because of trump in because of the bitterness with the republicans nationally and which is now also investing new york politics to upstate So you know that's gonna be. We expect the democrats to gerrymander the heck a and not very supportive beat inventive process. But you know all that. That's not the case but expected to be but as you say you know these are key issues. The last couple years have seen under cuomo. Not so odd. Because it's really the democrats senate push. Them is a huge explosion in voting rights which has been very bright spot in an otherwise really Discouraging government reform landscape and. Let me ask you finally. I want to return to something because this has been something interesting. That i've sort of noted. I tried to push state senator michael generis recently in a conversation about this and it's it's an important theme i think which is that even though super majority of democrats in both houses and they have advanced a lot of election reform voting reform as you said and some other things there does seem to be a pretty big gap between the assembly and the state senate in terms of sort of transparency Reform minded work. Can you say a little bit more about your assessment of that. Obviously some of it does go back as you mentioned the assembly speaker carl. Hasty you know used to be the the head of the bronx democratic county Apparatus you know in is as you said more of a behind closed doors operator when it comes to politics but any other thoughts unser that imbalance and how to how that law might be That logjam shorts might be broken where the senate has has passing things like some jayco performs but the assembly has yeah. I mean they're not way of looking at to is just change versus status quo and change energy in the senate is is you know vastly vastly greater than envy assembly where you have longer serving members Who are there who have worked away out through a supermajority over many many years and are used to that hierarchy whereas the democrats in state senate. Psychologically they've come in from all right. They were direct victims of almost gration. Abc and and the basic of that was probably leader industry as it's so. They had gaven chip on their shoulders about change. They want change their sincerity appetite for that. It doesn't exist in the assembly. And it's by far the biggest issue in for groups at want government reform or really want. Albany change interesting all right. We'll we'll we'll be watching that and much more john. Kenny executive director reimbur- albany. Really appreciate the time. And thanks for joining me. Thanks for having me.

"There's a new governor who wants to wants to be elected in her own right to a term as governor as you said through the june primary followed by the general election next so those dynamics will be quite interesting. Executive budget you mentioned is due in january. So were a few months away from from kathy local really having that one enormous shot at at instituting her imprint on things before she faces voters and the next day budget due by april first of next year. Of course a couple of months before that june primary of next year. Let's let's were in our last few minutes. You're john let's talk about the mta because it has been such an issue that reinvent albany has been focusing on doing such great work on We've been happy got music to publish op. Eds by you and your your team including rachel foul shoes. Who's focused a lot on this. What's what's the sort of essence of what a a new governor could do at the mta to improve how the mta functions and therefore serves the public. Well there's there's this short-term governor and then there's any governor with full-term on a separate those the best thing ho oh could do right now is nothing because the mta has been in Because of leadership changes and they have a a chair and ceo which is a unified position. Who's a business professional national real estate manager with Understand capital project management and how to manage the systems. We don't always see i but the is basically a competent person who is not motivated by grace schemes and wants to keep the trains and buses running time and so that you know that that works for us and Wanted labor of course had labor one of the things that she could do is to freeze the transformation plan or to have it reviewed And have general. Lebron is management team. Look at that. That was almost big effort to shake up the mta. Which in our view turned out to be a complete boggle almond let big brain drain from the senior experienced managers. Who just don't want to be there because of the chaos so just some stability in calm which are thinks that says. She wants to transmit transmitters as cultural governmental. Values would help. Mta a lot. Because they've been just rollock te by cuomo's radicalism and Rennick behavior and obsession with bizarre things like bridge lights and stripe tunnel tiles and all kinds of minus and in terms of one of the essential for the mta which is advancing capital program. Re signalling things like that to make subway service more dependable going into the future. She knows just like the mta. Leadership run run that and obviously You know try to advance congestion pricing program that would is supposed to bring in revenue that can be bonded to support that program. Nothing else really that. You're you're asking of her at this time. I mean she's look you know in in her scarce amount of time in office That the lease disruption is the best for the mta right now and if she gets reelected we can. Have you know we have a big discussion about. We'll talk about for years can do okay laughable things. There are things on the sort of government reform. Good government agenda that include potential changes to how boards of elections work be implementation of the new state public campaign finance program there's a redistricting process underway..

Twenty one day assesses open data so that scientists journalists and stakeholder alex stakeholders can can see. What's actually acid. And that would be a big break from cuomo and consistent with whole adopting the the cdc standards or reporting deaths so again cleaning up the mess momo's enormous because i donahue who is lying about numbers nursing residents who were kill to the tune of twelve thousand people or fifteen thousand depending on how you one slice it and that's incredible so so restoring some basic trust that the government is is being transparent tied. The truth about basic things is mental. Now there's nothing she can do is. This is a little walkie but is to get the july financial plan for the state. How which is one of the most basic transparency documents that state as because it's an update on the state's spending money going out where it's snowing which really matters right now because of the huge hus- hundred helmet and this that july lantis historically slate right now so there is very meyer.

"In terms of the sort of just the the bigger picture matching nations of how that's gone and governor huckle making a few immediate changes and then giving herself a forty five day period to evaluate other Cabinet members and other things in her administration. What's your General assessment of how the transition process has gone so far in the announcements that governor hokkaido's made about it first couple hours and her inauguration speech were a plus plus in i think that what struck groups in many journalists I spoke to were thrilled because she implied that she was going to clean house and bringing new blood and established new a new atmosphere and A normal person normal governor instead of one renting by terror. Say that she's gone downhill since then because the the forty five day. I'm giving myself forty. Five day thing has really been kind of about. She hasn't at all shown through action. What her priorities are or who she's gonna keep and who's gonna go and there's some kiki People that are top. Cuomo people who are still there and i would point in particular to rob monica. Who's the state budget. Director end was was the head of had by director and policy negotiator for the senate. Gop republicans for about a decade. So he's not just any republican who happens to be a good numbers guy. He was the main antagonists to the senate. Democrats representative of the republicans in three men in a room during the first six years of the administration ourselves. So if she keeps him around. That's like having the ghost of hanging around the second floor and we're we're watching that very carefully. Now we don't have we're not artisan. Great that she has some knowledgeable republicans administration. We don't have a problem with that. It's more who he was both to cuomo and to the senate. Gop and the fact that he epitomizes in our view along the sleight of hand and the bad old albany of complete cynicism non-transparency to boot. He also sits on more than thirty already. Boards which is important because public authorities are a branch of government and that we look at and we think are extremely important because they really have limited oversight by the state legislature. They exist off budget and their boards. One of the cuomo. Legacies are totally have been subordinated by the governor. This public authorities were created in the late Pardon me in the nineteen thirties. In new york state it is an innovation for government in the entire world. Actually to issue that and to be run by technocrats directly insulated from the day to day politics in yet cuomo completely subverted them into a tool of the governor's office and it's really a gigantic sandbox. Were that spends tens of billions of dollars if the legislature is not allowed to play. It's the governor's own on preserve in the biggest of those is the mta..

"The state relies the joint commission on abbott ethics j. cope which is also nicknamed j joe because of its toothlessness and Right now there's a constitutional amendment to change. How the appointments to that work. So it's not dominated by the governor and that's one of the pin at changes that has to happen but really it has to be. It's going to have to come from interest groups from nonprofit groups that get state social service contracts that are gonna have to start voicing concerns about degree of corruption in pay to play on. It's gonna have to come from some labor unions who have been largely acquiescent even contributed to the culture of corruption in albany. And it's gonna take a lot of different players wanting to change things and then some specific institutional actions like a new j. l. To to make that happen. And it's probably gonna take more prosecutions by federal government like the ones we saw under pre pahara some years ago to really smack these guys around and people can sometimes obviously have their eyes glaze over here when we talk about Process issues. But there's a few key process issues that are not so much about from from where i sit in. Correct me if anything wrong. That are not so much about jacob or federal prosecutors adding onto. You're saying not disagreeing with you but that are sort of basics of better government that the new governor and a sort of fresh start here for the legislature working with a new governor. Have the opportunity to change one thing. I'm thinking of is the idea of not using messages of necessity to pass bills without public review. When it's really not necessary. Are there things like that. That are on your agenda. That would be sort of not that exciting. Not that sexy but just key pieces of good solid government. That could be changed. Your you know. If there's a new dawn that some would like to see here in new york government yes absolutely. The governor said that she wanted a new era in albany and that gives us help. But what the kind of change you're talking about not using messages of necessity which allows the governor to Allow the legislature to pass bills without three days of aging in public so the applicant scrutinized and raised concerns. I mean that's a really good basic one. A lot of this is just how they get addict our nets and unfortunately today the legislature is in special session. As you noticed as we speak and Last week the governor said that she was going to call a special session but it would be limited only to issues of extending a addiction moratorium. And now we see that the agenda includes a weed. Czar changes to the open meeting law and possibly other things which kind of ronald ones confidence in it. In a clean break from the past but even more so the irony is that the legislature went straight into private session into caucus for the actual substantive debate so the gavelled in on video. And now you get a screensaver. That says you know they're they're not there right now. So the actual public debate on all these issues is occurring in secret and the kind of thing that the governor has to work on changing and the leaders is not doing this kind of saying and having just a value in transparency in public debate even though it can be harder less expedient and sometimes uglier because the public ecstasy actual disagreement and that that's the bare bones of democracy..

"Deaths which is now been reported on and exhaustively revealed by the new york times wall street journal and others and our attorney general's report and His top lieutenant and closest ally joep rococo is now in federal prison for a bribery scandal. That involved over a billion dollars in public funds in gigantic bid-rigging scandal in upstate new york That also took down. Almos- technologies are in implicated the sunni research foundation and suny. So this is a governor who's touched in tarnish just about every major governmental institution in new york and We completely reject by the way that what we call the the bastard narrative which is he was a bastard but he was our bastard note he was his own bastard that did things for his own political aggrandizement in his own power and in the process we think did a tremendous amount of damage to new york institutions. That are going to take a while to recover from. So how do you think about that process. You know they're obviously have been sort of increasing voices in the legislature opposing him even before the sexual harassment and misconduct scandal really broke. Because there were the The democratic legislatures who defeated the members of the independent democratic conference in you saw you know some changes in the legislature at least among democrats. They're obviously republican voices. That have opposed him all along. But when you have this culture in government that of course is also includes the state legislature will seen a number of legislative leaders wind up in prison. How do you think about sort of a transition. From a government. With a culture of misdeeds corruption pay a play lack of transparency and so on to a government. that's a great question and it is the question because it takes a village to make a corrupt state government and that includes a lot of what we call the big dogs the power players and You know big labor unions businesses bay industries on an all name a few including the hospital association. New york rodney. The real estate board of new york big big players who seem to have bought into the idea that the ends justified means and part of changing albany is changing and getting them to reduce their cynicism and that is a heck of challenge. And as you point to the state senate in particular has started changing because of pressure from younger reformist who tend to be oppressive from the left of the political spectrum and the state senate is really been the the place where progress is most likely to happen in and the state assembly. Last though. because it's it's leader are all hasty is way to call more traditionally albanese more of a transactional politician. He prefers to do things behind closed doors. He's not a big fan of transparency. He's not a big fan of government accountability measures and so Any governor is gonna have to to use bully pulpit and enlist allies in journalism and advocacy to really really put pressure and move some specific things Which segues into you know. How do we do this. And one of the key Key points is having independent ethics watchdog in albany in this case..
