"So you're you're working a staff job and you're thinking okay. Is this just me slowly dying. And i'm getting paid and there's a comfort and security in knowing that there's a regular paycheck distress over finding work all the time but then there's no real fast way to get ahead right. Yeah i mean there's there's always move out to up that's kind of what we do In our industry but then you just end up at another job. Kind of just biding your time. Until you think you're ready for a promotion or a pay raise or something and then you just move somewhere else at. It's it's just like a slow predictable path and it's not very appealing when i think ahead like ten twenty years. Yeah and how long have you had this job. I've been at this job a belt three and a half years which is about the the average stint that. I'll i'll be at any one place i see. So you're coming up on that and you're getting the aging yen. Okay let me ask you a couple of questions. Are there a lot of job opportunities. In nebraska there are I live In the capital. Which is lincoln. And i work in the biggest city which is omaha That's where berkshire-hathaway is based at of. There's there's a lot of industry here. There's a lot more design in advertising. Things like that than i would have ever imagined when i first moved here. I'm i'm originally from southern california and you have this. Perception of the mid west is just farms and cows and All that kind of stuff. And i've been shocked. At how much designed there is here. Okay so there's plant it's a healthy job market for a person with creative services or craig's skills right. Oh absolutely okay all right. Do you feel that. You have to stay for certain reason that i need to stay in my position I don't feel any compulsion to stay. I can't say in all honesty that this has been the best job company culture that experienced in. Gosh like but twenty years. I've been now all the stuff i mean. It's it's it's rare you know so it's the idea of of leaving it for really anything else especially another company. That's kind of not appealing. Because i know what the alternative could be like and that this is rare. So there's that part of it that's that's teetering me there and i mean they pay me well.

"I can respect that whether you agree with it or not. That's a different story entirely. But these guys are running the show and they have a pretty good idea of what the business is doing. And i think they are very disciplined investors to me. I think the interesting question for berkshire hathaway really is what this company looks like in the future. I mean at some point or another. It boils down to greg able as the ceo. And todd and ted leading the way with those investment portfolios so you have to feel like there is going to be a pivot maybe towards tech or towards more forward-looking ideas whether that happens or not i guess remains to be seen. I feel like it. It has to at some point which which you know. What does this business look like. Then because if you have these cash cow insurance businesses in you have some folks who feel more comfortable. Investing in tech i mean. Munger buffett really. That's that's not really been their forte. I mean they've been very clear about that. This could be. This could be a little bit of a different looking investment portfolio here over the coming decade berkshire hathaway two point. Oh so to speak. Which could be exciting for investors. I think it could you know. I don't want to knock the underlying business. I mean you look at sort of the the profits generated from operations quarter. We'd look good. That's what's fueling. That's what's funding the share buyback. So the you know they've done such a good job finding an acquiring all these businesses that generate cash. It's just that for about a year. Now this has been the dominant story with you. Know with this stock. And i'm i'm sure if i were shareholder i'd be perfectly fine with this but just as someone who is not a shareholder. I'm like really you don't want to spend any. You don't wanna take twenty eight billion and go by mccormack and get some spice in that. That's gotta be some right. I mean seaver like it just. That's just like you'd find underneath the couch cushions right. Yeah i don't know it's really. You wonder what goes on behind closed doors. I mean allocating capital is difficult in the bigger. You get the more difficult. It gets particularly if you have such a long track record of success because expectations are even higher right. I mean people expect you to do something genius. Because you're warren buffett charlie munger investing is is easier as difficult as you want to make it and it feels like right now..

"It would amount to a bolt on acquisition for a lot of bigger players out there in the tech space. I mean it wouldn't take anything just a just a by this company up and in added to your to your portfolio so i didn't didn't make the recommendation based on that but when i was doing the research for this business that was one thing that kept on coming back to my mind was like i just it really feels like given the technology that they own given the numbers that they continue to report an in given how many devices this company is in giving companies. Technology is in it. it's difficult for me to imagine. In ten years that it wouldn't be snapped up but stranger things have happened. Certainly speaking of deep pockets berkshire-hathaway second quarter profits were seven percent higher than a year ago. And we can talk about the reopening boosting berkshires railroad and energy businesses. But this really seems increasingly like share. Buyback story this. I mean they are buffett and munger are sticking to their guns in terms of not overpaying for acquisitions their cash pile is only getting larger even with the share buybacks. I think it's one hundred forty billion dollars now and look. I'm not if you're a shareholder. I mean the stocks up twenty three percent this year. you know. it's not exciting. But but a stock going north is true. Yep stock going up is is an interesting and noteworthy stock right. That's one that makes you smile. And i think that with berkshire hathaway. We're kind of getting what we more or less expect. I think with the business like this. At this point it's life not lighting the world on fire. but but still doing. Well i mean you look at the last three and five years i believe it's underperformed the market a little bit but you stretch that timeline further out and it starts to look better and that's that's kind of the idea behind this business. I mean you you look at the business like this and you sort of own it for a long long time and you never really worry about it and and this quarter. I think really explain why. I mean you saw nice bounce back from what was a difficult year last year. Operating earnings up twenty one percent from a year ago because of what you noted their performance and energy railroads obviously insurance is going to be a little bit more reliable but yeah it does feel like this is a does feel like this is a story where the conversations could become more and more about how do we return value to shareholders in. I know there are a lot of folks out there who would love to see berkshire start paying a dividend. I kind of feel like that would make sense at this point for them. I'm not a shareholder of berkshire hathaway. But it feels like they. Could they could do that. And and and it would. It would probably make a lot of investors feel. You'll pretty good. Because they are repurchasing a ton of stock to your point there they repurchase six billion dollars in stock during the quarter. I think that brings the six month total better than twelve billion basically on track for what they did last year. So yeah they're not going to go out there and overpay for anything and and it's it's a market where valuations are stretched really in a lot of ways and it feels like they just believe that berkshire hathaway today represents a better value than most of what's out there. And i mean..

"I mean that that is a space that we have commanded Since our inception and i feel like we need to make a stoller play in the luxury market. And we've already started taking some steps to do that But i think it's really important and critical as we continue to grow that we have a real focus on luxury while not forgetting the other price points that make up the bulk of our business. So that's that's the second thing and then the third thing. And i think this is really key because it's something that i've focused on real heavily in my former company and it's also something that berkshire hathaway who services focused on and to me.

David Vlez on Building the Branchless Bank
"So david i think an interesting entry point here is fun and interesting once since the news was just announced that berkshire hathaway made a very large investment into your company. And you just told me that they're the largest bank investor ever so that's quite an interesting dynamic. Can you walk us through this story. Why do you think berkshire was so interested in your business out of this down. To be completely honest we never really considered him as potentially investor as we've seen him very actively investing in traditional banks. Intriguing convents where one of the biggest investors and goldman sachs surprises. Today they to be best for bank of america and they tend to look more traditional recumbents in more mature industries but we had a conversation with them a few months ago and they started digging in and they were very very curious can really really good questions about the market size of the unit economics of the business about cohorts very thoughtful understanding financial services. In what we're doing here in the mark because howard getting with some of the traditional banks in latin america and in a few weeks they were very excited and very willing to lead around in. No bank can so for us has been we see days and i think the market has proceedings a bit of the big validation of the business model validation of or ability to show bags eventually your ability to surpass traditional banks in the future financial services. What do you think are the most important differentiator between what will call the incumbent banks that maybe berkshire invested in more traditionally versus new bank. What are the largest important differences for those out there listening to understand the thing. The first one is the consumer obsession and a culture that is based on consumer obsession. Nah i don't think this is shirley specific to financial services. I think what common denominator of incumbent industries either financial services. You look at insurance or even media or transportation is that after. Let's say six. Seven decades of traditional capitalism you ended up with a number of players oligopolies where four five companies effectively owned the markets.

I mean it probably came. Just because i- listeners will know i just finished the sopranos and that was my previous carve out and wanted more and the cast has like twenty five overlapping people. It's the same freaking people. It's amazing but it's it's a frigging work of art for anyone who has who hasn't seen it. I mean it's like scorsese. As bast it's amazing direction. It's amazing cinematography that dialogue is exceptional. It's just a just a tremendous person's life. I've never been like a gangster movie person. Harare thought i was but this is so good then the the og. I have not seen it. I have to watch it. It's great and it's not like you know like obviously there's the godfather and i've got a long rabbit hole to go down like truly. Oh gee just watch one to don't do that. That's what i hear. And then my second one is the goodfellas soundtrack. It is like hit after hit after. Hit a george harrison eric clapton and aretha franklin and the the film sort of finishes with layla by derek and domino's and that is just like wrap up any epic epic story. I think we had the rights which layla the electrical trinity cousteau electric. Although the acoustic is also great is great. I'm an electric fan. They're both the electric creates more of a the sort of like epic conclusion mood that is appropriate for that will right air clapton and see if we can get the rights to use that on the fate out of this episode. Great great actually. We probably won't. I'm sure for sure whether or not you're a fan of of the movie of seen. Go listen to the soundtrack on spotify. So great when dino when goodfellas came out early nineties.

"For thirty seven billion dollars in berkshires largest deal ever bigger even oh skipped over the railroad in two thousand nine the but they finally ns about the railroad good for that. That was a good deal. That was yep that has done well for berkshire warren buffett from two thousand and eight to twenty eleven. He was good. He was good in those years but precision cast parts man of for thirty seven billion dollars last year. They took a ten billion dollar right down on that deal. So that's a dog. Then the worst though we elitist do. Oh my god tony sixteen. He starts investing in airlines. This is the who said that he was going to shoot down. Orville and wilbur. What was he thinking. Well the interesting thing is so. He sold the airlines in a panic sale. Right when the pandemic dip started and we all know of course there was about five days where you can actually buy the dip. Before it came skyrocketing back and we didn't endure a real market crash in this global pandemic 'cause monetary policy. Anyway jerome powell yeah. Buffet basically sells at the bottom with these airlines. And it's interesting. Because i don't fault him for the sale. It is a very reasonable thing to sell the airlines. Then because if the government didn't bail them out they could have all gone to zero. I mean the government was paying some airlines payroll to sort of make it through that period. So i don't even though he sold it. I think right around the worst. The bottom i blame the by your knew that he even had a comment years before that he had sort of like a is it like a romantic fascination or like a dirty habit about the about owning your lines or something like that like he knew and he still did it like the newspapers anymore so he wants airlines now to be fair to worry and again the scuttle but it here is and there's some comments to this effect that it actually was. I think ted who i got interested in the airlines. And they talked about it. You know and then warren so okay. It's kind of funny..

"On jeep so he did not invest in those financial firms in september. Two thousand eight. However he did get two other calls that he was slightly more receptive to specifically goldman sachs and g e. You wouldn't think of ge as financial firm but they had t. capital which large very active financial player. And they were in trouble. Did you know that. Ge's consumer facing savings bank was sold to goldman sachs. This is like maybe seven eight years ago and goldman sachs rebranded at in a sloppy ranch. Kind of a quick one gs bank and it. Satis- gs bank for like two or three years and then that became the underpinnings of mark. Oh no way. I did not know that as originally a g. financial product no way and they're both warren buffett bailouts. Two thousand eight swoop ups move ups the very next week after the lehman bankruptcy goldman must called probably during that weekend too or or shortly thereafter berkshire invest five billion dollars for preferred equity and goldman with a ten percent annual dividend. So essentially this is. It's it's like it's not preferred equity like preferred equity that you'd get investing in a startup. It's a more debt like instrument so ten percent keep on the solomon coupon i think was only nine percent so matt. This is golden with a call option for goldman to call the preferred equity back for five and a half billion dollars plus berkshire got another billion dollars of common stock warrants at a strike price of one hundred fifteen dollars a share those warrants end up becoming they got renegotiated. I think once with goldman but become quite value in its golden all told on that deal berkshire up about three billion dollars so they get about eight billion dollars back on the five billion dollars. They invested goldman pretty good for fixed income. That happens within like two years. And how long did that last did they end up completely out of goldman shortly thereafter. I think they held the equity that they exercised from the warrants for a while. But they don't end up making too much more than a billion dollars so good deal Ge when slightly less well the week after goldman on october first berkshire invest three billion dollars in ge for basically the same deal ten percent coupon warrants to buy three billion dollars of common stock at twenty two dollars a share unfortunately unlike goldman whose stock has of today is trading at three hundred and sixty four dollars a share versus the one fifteen straight price that berkshire got ge..

"From january again. We can't move on fast enough warranty so before. The tech bubble pops. He does one more surprising to outside. Watchers move which is in nineteen ninety nine. He buys a utility company berkshire bang utility company. This is what warren has come to like the leg. Company that provides electricity. He buys mid american energy holdings and people wanna know why why why aren't buying a utility rates in. The snowball wire was already being ridiculed for his refusal to buy technology stocks. Now he had bought the light company. How dull the energy business gets up. Did a fine for berkshire like. It's another fine of those at least money. they're fine. It does come though with two managers that warren seems to greatly admire by the way we talked about this in the pre show. But we haven't yet talked about it on the said you know how you see berkshire-hathaway real estate agents all over the place. Oh yeah that came. With mid american energy holdings they also had a real estate brokerage so weird. How does that work like. My understanding of the electric company is that it's like a public utility it's market by market. Then that were some of that must be private companies. Yeah i don't know exactly. I mean there are lots obviously lots of utilities separate utilities different geographies all across the country. Yes somehow they had a real estate brokerage in there as well so there is. Ceo of the company. One david socal and the number to remember that name ever remember that name. His number two guy named greg able the just announced to remember that name. Ceo of berkshire hathaway. Yeah that's how they come into the company where you hear much more about that later. So okay finally. All this tech stuff comes to a head in the two thousand annual meeting where warren and charlier just getting pummeled by questions from shareholders onstage in the arena asking what on earth they are doing. Why do they not own technology. Stocks everyone else's getting these five x.'s. In a year what are you doing here. Trying to make me fifteen percent. You're making me poor. Warren says quote. I don't want to speculate about high tech. And then of course he goes on to speculate. And he compares the whole thing to a ponzi scheme. And then charlie jumps in. This is my favorite. This might be my favorite charlie moment of all time. Egypt said eddie says the reason we use the phrase wretched excess is because it produces wretched consequences. It's irrational if you mix raisins with turds they're still turds all time great quote. I don't know if there is a video of this if there is i haven't seen it but i can just imagine like the entire just being like shocks like charlie munger. Just say turds like what. I think alice actually says that lighted the the snowball. But if you think about what each of them is saying it's telling it's actually quite different. Warren is saying. I don't understand this stuff. I refuse to engage not unannounced ponzi scheme. Charlie saying some different here he gets that there are raisins in the text. Acts like microsoft. And like and you know they're they're real companies in there but there are also terrance and microsoft may be doing great but if in win this whole tech bubble pops and it will splatter from the turds is gonna get all over your reasons to and dragged down and when moran says i don't understand this thing it's upon scheme he's referring.

"What thirty-five acts on their initial investment of the stuff that they own that are public markets. Before they wade into apple. Which we'll talk about later. Coca cola is their biggest single holding of stock that they don't wholly own business. Yeah it of course no longer is but yeah i mean. This is huge evan. This is one of the key legs of the berkshire stool is coke and also speaks to how different the company is now. You can barely see the coke equity value in there. Okay so back to the meeting of these two businesses here so in nineteen ninety seven. There is this amazingly perfect moment. I think this moment kevin marks A major transition point in business and industry in the world and it starts at the rise of tech and the rise of the internet and how much the world is going to change at. it reminds me of. There's the famous quote in history. I think it's about germany. Like eighteen fifties where the quotas the german history reached. Its turning point and germany failed to turn. This applies to worrying here. Investing in corporate history reached. Its turning point and warren. Fales too tired. So summer nineteen ninety-seven. We are at of course the allen and company sun valley conference and there is a panel discussion hosted by don keough with the participants three participants being one warren to roberto goizueta at the ceo of coke and three bill gates so here it is old school like the consumer brand coat and bill gates and microsoft and warren on the same stage. Everybody thinks this is going to be like a back affair. You know maybe sort of a genteel changing of the guard or something like that. But bill goes off script here so bill would later say that he meant this as a compliment but he trots out warren's him sandwich freeze when talking about roberto and done onstage. The the moderator of the panel is the president of coke and you've got the ceo of coke as one of the participants and then the other participant is like the largest shareholder and coke right and gates. His friend gates says it like you guys got it easy. Ham sandwich could run your business. And he is that to microsoft. He contrast that with microsoft where he says running microsoft is such a high wire. Act that he suspects. He's going to have to retire before he gets too old like indeed well before he gets age sixty because you need a young person. Incharge who can adapt and navigate the constant change in the technology. Business is the other panelists. Roberto is sixty five and tragically later. That year would die unexpectedly very quickly of lung cancer. Don is seventy one and warren is sixty seven so gates's literally to slapping them all in the face here and roberto sort of has the sort of stereotypical fiery cuban temporary here. He is hugely offended by this. I don't think he walks off stated he never talks to gates again for the rest of his life after this episode. I don't know how don reacted to it. Warren kinda shrug it off like he does like bills my friend. He's built. He's kind of like he's like a wild animal. You can't like brigham in public too much but the thing is like this is a major social faux pas and gates's part but like he's totally free and right all he's right and it is clearly. This seminal moment for warren where he sort of like looking laughed and he seeing the past he seeing the things he already owns these seeing these cash flowing..

If we think we know very little about him we know even less about his wife. The woman weeping told to call anne hathaway and his children. We only hamlet himself. The boy is lucky if he gets possibly to mentions in these big biographies of shakespeare them night and he was born and they mentioned that he died in fifteen ninety six.

Either one of these ones, you're like, all right? Well, that's what it is, right. Is it thing though? Like, so I feel like the looming thing with capitals is that, you know, any team is going to play them is going to give the shit kicked out of them. But yes, you know, they're finishing their big team. They've got Tom Wilson, they've got Hathaway, they've got Dylan Char, all these, all these big guys, but I think you look at how you best exploit a team like that. It's easier than 14. Like the Bruins, what their strengths to land punches against a team like the capitals on the ice in terms of you know, the X's and O's and it is the Penguins.

Or is that one we go with Lazar with Frederick and Wagner so that, that can change a little bit in terms of the max but you look at the, the, the defense of the capitals have. I mean, the Bruins average close to three, three point six goals per game, against the capitals. The only team that scored more goals against against Atlantic division. Foes our East Division, foes was the same Choice which makes sense, not surprising, but the fact that, yeah, the fact that, you know, Washington who has a slow defense who do not really have to lead goalies in that, which, I mean, I think the biggest equalizer for how much the cap wasn't given the Bruins trouble of these has been because of brain. Hopefully now you've got vanicek and samsonov two guys who don't really ski all that money. Trade. I just look at the matchups and what the Bruins are going to go up against. Yeah, you're going to get knocked around quite a bit but it's

The Importance Of Diversifying Alzheimer's Research
"John. Let's talk about what alzheimer's disease as an how it's related to other forms of dementia right so dementia is an overarching term. That refers to thinking and memory problems from lots of causes including stroke or head injury. Alzheimer's is far and away. The most common cause of dementia at least in later life and it refers to the specific process where these toxic plaques and tangles build up in the brain and eventually start killing neurons. Those are the brain cells. We used to think and remember an for black americans. How much greater is their risk of developing alzheimer's or some other form of dementia. Some studies show that the risk is twice as high as it is for a white american though the exact amount still kind of in question and by the way there's also some evidence that lat next people also have a higher risk and asian americans appear to have a low risk than white americans. Okay and do. Scientists know why they're such huge disparities not fully. Some of the difference probably has to do with known risk factors for alzheimer's so health problems like heart disease. High blood pressure diabetes obesity. All of these increase a person's risk for alzheimer's and these factors are more common in black americans and they are in white americans. There's also at least one. Genetic risk factor. Okay people who have one or two copies of a gene called abeille. Four are more likely to develop alzheimer's and the four gene appears to be more common in people of african ancestry but scientists really don't understand alzheimer's very well in anyone. They've been testing all of these alzheimer's drugs for decades and really nothing has worked so research is still. Don't know whether all of these factors put together can fully explain why alzheimer's is so much more common in black americans. John that's really tough to hear. I mean you mentioned healthcare earlier. The you know that black americans have less access to care for loved ones with alzheimer's. What do we know about that. Just a couple of weeks ago. Alzheimer's association released a report on race ethnicity and alzheimer's and i talked with brain scientists. Maria correo who is now the chief science officer there. here's part of what. She told me about what they learned from a survey of people who were caring for a friend or family member with alzheimer's among nonwhite caregivers half say they've faced discrimination when navigating through the healthcare system with a top concern being the providers. Don't even listen to what they're saying. Perhaps because of their race color or ethnicity that's really frustrating and not surprisingly black americans. Were the most likely to report discrimination. Okay so we've talked about risk we've talked about care. Let's talk about research so as scientists are trying to find treatments. What can be done to make. Sure that black americans are included in that research. Several things they can change. The racial and ethnic composition of the people who do research black researchers are more likely to have ties within black communities and are more likely to make sure that studies are inclusive. Researchers can also change the racial and ethnic composition of the people who participate in research studies and they can focus on questions about why. Alzheimer's appears to act differently in people of different races. Yeah i mean. These are really good goals to have of course but our researchers getting any closer to achieving them. I've seen some encouraging signs especially when it comes to diversifying scientific studies so for example a couple of years ago researchers formed a group called the african ancestry neuro science research initiative. I spoke to one of the brain scientists involved. Dr cuff weeds rossa. He's a psychiatrist and a professor at duke university. He told me he joined the effort when he realized that his own ancestors who came from west africa had been excluded from genetic studies of brain disorders. It was clearly an immediately evident to me how much of a problem this was right because for me as one who does what we call basic research. In other words. I take the genes that are found in human gene studies and then i studied them in model organisms in other words things like mice or rats and understand how it changes other brain works. It meant that. I was studying genes. That were specifically related to onus in folks of european ancestry which would mean that cough fleet. Derosa was only studying the genes of a narrow segment of people. Which sounds pretty. messed up. If you're trying to figure out the genetic story of how. Alzheimer's affects all people like what is the scientific justification for this approach. Years ago the logic was that it would be easier to find genes responsible for brain disorders in people of european descent. The reason is that they tend to be very similar genetically to one another. The genes of people of african ancestry vary a lot more now. Technology has made genetic sequencing so widely available that you can easily study all kinds of people and scientifically you should because people with different ancestries can have genetic differences that affect their risk for diseases like alzheimer's absolutely and have scientists learned anything new about alzheimer's disease from studying it in black americans. Maybe you know that. Jean april four. That increases a person's risk of developing alzheimer's. Especially if you inherit two copies one from each of your parents so the gene is more common among black americans but it may be less risky for them. Some other genetic factors seems to protect people of african ancestry from the bad effects of a four. I spoke with dr daniel weinberger. He's a scientist at the lieber institute in baltimore. And he's also part of the african ancestry neuroscience research initiative. Here's what he told me about april four. If you inherit the risk form of that gene from both of your parents and your european ancestry that increases your likelihood of manifesting outside disease later in life about twenty fold if have african ancestry the risk from inheriting that gene from both your parents is about a fourth of what it is if you were of european ancestry so if scientists could figure out what the protective mechanism is they might be able to develop a drug. That would help protect all people who have at least one copy of the four gene and that is by the way tens of millions of people in the us alone now. That sounds really promising. But it's gonna take a lot more research right that also broadens who's being included in that research it will truly diversifying the groups of people in research studies is really challenging and scientists know. They can't do it on their own. So the african ancestry project for example has involved. People like reverend alvin hathaway. He's the pastor of union baptist church in baltimore. He told me one challenge facing scientists. Is that a lot of black. Americans are pretty skeptical about this kind of research. You know clearly when you begin to talk about The brain you begin to talk about the genome data set immediately within the community. That triggers all kinds of suspicions It triggers a lot of suspicions because There has been arguments that The caucasian brain is different from the brain of people of african descent and one of the amazing revelations that i found. Was that when you actually look at brain tissue. You can't discern difference right. Scientists propped up thinking for a long time. And you're saying the legacy of that lives on. Yes it does so john. How'd you researchers with the african ancestry project and other groups navigate that the alzheimer's association did a survey a few months ago. That found that one in five black americans would actually feel insulted. If a doctor even suggested a cognitive assessment to detect alzheimer's so of medicine has a lot of work to do to build trust with black americans and other minority groups. I talked about what that might take with. A scientist named lisa barnes. She's a professor and also a cognitive neuropsychologist at the old timers disease center in chicago. She told me she often. Here's the same comment. When she approaches groups that have been marginalized about doing a research study especially when that may take years to complete these researchers come in and they collect all these data than we never hear from you again so we we also give back so we who make sure that we go back to the community and update them on what we're finding we give their vice about how we're interpreting data. So we try to really make it a partnership between us and the community. And i think that that goes a long way and building trust and and and having them stay with us for the long haul.
I Cant Afford One Bitcoin! What Can I Do?
"Bitcoin is hot. Stop amidst this current bull market. We've seen a rush of new users who like most new users have no what's going on and one question of particular comes up a whole lot that i wanted to talk about today. What do i do if i can't afford one bitcoin. I'm adam levine and this is speaking of bit point. Today's always i'm joined by the other host of the show. Andreas 'em and operas. Hello stephanie murphy. I am jonathan mahan. Hey thanks to all the hosts into you listener for sitting on today's session. So i was talking to some people new to the cryptocurrency space last week and they were talking about what they were looking at making the first coins and they said that bitcoin just cost too much that it was too expensive that even if they agreed with all of the fundamental values the changes that will happen in the world. How bitcoin is a hedge for that and that bitcoin was going to. Let's say three x or five x in the next ten years and they saw that is real that they just didn't feel like transferring their wealth into something that they would never have one that they would never have one bitcoin that even if they spent a decade doing everything they could they would only ever have less than one bitcoin as a failure state as something that like emotionally. They couldn't get past. And i started thinking about myself when i was in college. I learning about bitcoin. And honestly i don't know if bitcoin had hit thirty or forty thousand dollars instead of dollar if i could have seen it as something that i wanted to get into just because of that mountain cliff of believing in something but then feeling like a failure. Because you don't even have quote unquote one of it. What do you guys think about that. What do you think people should be thinking about when it comes to that. I think that's an important psychological marker that people check in with when they're thinking about do i wanna buy this. How much does it cost to buy. One of this thing and i mean the real solution to that is to reframe. You're thinking there's other units to measure bitcoin in lots of wallets denominate their balances in mila. Bits now which is one thousandth of a bitcoin and you can change that in the settings and so you know if you could afford one million. Bitcoin would you by that. What about wants to toshi. The units are actually quite arbitrary. And it doesn't help that. The news and everything reports the price in terms of one bitcoin but that is also kind of helpful for a very long term perspective to see that it went from being worth nothing up to you know nearly fifty thousand dollars. There's other things that exhibit similar behavior for example. Some stocks have extremely high unit prices. And of course you can buy fractions of them berkshire. Hathaway is a famous example of that other things that have this kind of tendency. Are things like precious metals. You know you don't say well. I'm not gonna invest in gold because i can't afford a whole kilogram bar. Well yeah i mean. You can't but that doesn't mean that you can't get an airing. It's still gold is just a different value. And the unifies works both ways so for example instead of saying why can't afford a bitcoin but i can't afford a bit which is millions of a bitcoin. You can't afford a bit and that has a nice name. It's not merely bitcoin. Which kind of makes it sounds like a bitcoin with too many feet. That's a bad greek joke. It's not a unit that has no relationship you could also just measuring soto. She's because we all know of course are the standard as i keep getting reminded and you could choose any arbitrary unit but you can also go the other way right. You could redefined for example. Ten bitcoin as a chad hike. Very few people can really afford to buy a whole chad. But could i buy one tenth of a chat of bitcoin or desi chavez. I prefer to call it it. Oh all of these things are completely arbitrary and you can torment yourself on way or rejoice the out there in a completely arbitrary way and this is the key here arbitrary. It's not rational to focus. On any specific unit and we have a word for things that humans do the deviate from rationality or norm and those are called cognitive by and this particular thing is called unit bias. It's of well known cognitive bias and is studied in psychology from a number of different perspectives. It's not just the. I want to own one bitcoin. It's also the if you give me a twenty four ounce cup of soda. I'm going to drink the whole thing. Just because it comes in that size even though i may be only wanted half of it or if you create a heaping plate of french fries or if you give me a giant bag of doritos i'm gonna finish everything. Unit biases be studied a lot in terms of portions for eating. Because it actually one of the things that drives a number of eating disorders because it's a cognitive bias. It's a bug in your ability to think rationally about certain situations and that bug can lead to behavior that is against your own self interest and so this is a normal thing to have unit bias and sometimes says expresses itself in hilarious ways like for example to jonathan's example of people saying well. I can't buy a whole bitcoin. you get the opposite. Which is people who bought into dosage and are looking at it at six cents going. Yeah we can get it to a dollar dollar while allowing me to answer that watson dollar. What you don't understand dear sir is that there are one hundred twenty nine does and they are produced at a rate of what is it. One point four million a day and so to get does to a dollar. It's total market capitalization would have to reach a hundred and thirty five billion dollars or basically where a theorem walls last week. Now i don't know how you measure the utility of does and even if you think cerium is shit. Coin will not that bad

Anne Hathaway is the grand high witch and the witches what attracted her to the witches and also working with director. Robert Zemeckis sh- drew me to the project was getting the call Robert Zemeckis wants to work with you and I said great and then. You know the details I said, Oh yes. That too, and then it just got better because it was this beloved a book in this incredible part and. So. I've just felt so lucky that he was my director on this because it's it's a scary thing to kind of swing. Big is as I did on this one But because I knew it was Bob and I just looked at his track record with his films but also his track record with Charac with actors stepping outside of their comfort zones in playing characters in this really free way I just felt I just felt very excited and I wanted to show every day and be worthy of his film. How much input did you have in creating this magical character? Every department on this movie was they were working at the absolute top of their game and I'm. You know. It was such a collaboration. We really inspired each other I'm just I was just so happy I mean it just it just worked at the guys say that you know it's it's I'm not going to based on my own reaction because of course, I'm always GonNa Lake I'm not going to have the fun reaction. The Fun reaction is your reaction. The Fun reaction is watching other people react to her and just just like seeing people go with this absolute Weirdo is has been a real real for me. Elaborate set it was so beautiful to Really feel yourself and your performance in the space you know to know that the ballroom, for example, going to be so massive that it felt like I could make my performance big enough to match it. But then I gotta say it was unreal lesson from even after however many years have been doing this. You know Joanna Johnson did the costumes and in person they were absolutely beautiful. But then I happened to see shot of of all of the witches and I saw the way the fabrics came alive on camera and I realized there's just a whole `nother level of filmmaking that I haven't figured out yet her paid attention to, which is not how things look. In person, but then how the film finds them, How the light finds them, how they translate, and it was the most gorgeous Lee woven tapestry visual tapestry that she had created with Bob and I was truly truly floored by it. Same thing with sets. So I mean it was just a high was just it was such a rich project. I loved every minute working with Octavia Spencer and reuniting with her devil wears product co-star, Stanley Tucci Love Stanley. So Octavia. one of those axes for me. You're like, oh please just let her be as good as in person as I as I think she is and he was even better. She was such a joy and we had a laugh. She's just so inspiring like just the way she just gets things done. She was telling me about other projects she had kind of on the back burner and and it just all senate's tastic and just an and I love her performance I love how how grounded it is and I think that that kind of. made the film play well off of each other both realms and then Stanley Stanley did gave me such a gift on this one because coming in knowing I the way the performance had of come together for me and knowing that was going to be taking his big swing right off the bat. I did my first at rehearsal and I stepped on my mark and I said my first line in in the accident as the character with the voice and Stanley just broke into giggles and that the end you knowing Stanley from Devil's Prada I knew that was a really good sign because he only lasts. Something's really funny. The, which is now on HBO. Max For bite this is Tony Talada..

I'm reading straight off of Twitter from Forbes Warren buffet is offering his nearly four hundred thousand employees at Berkshire Hathaway companies a chance to win one million dollars a year for life. The catch you need to pick the correct Sweet Sixteen in the men's NCW basketball tournament Bill. So if I were to do this, I'm employee and I win right? Do I need to stay in -ployed by them.

I I would assume that you have an option to retire there. Right. I would assume that if you get the Sweet Sixteen right? You have the option to retire? I bet he could make your life, and like I can make you disappear. Someone actually did it. This is probably reckless but feel.

No. But I know, but if someone wins he doesn't want the up and comer twenty two year old just out of college. So when you think right?
