Warren Rustand on Leading a Life of Design
"So excited that you hear him dose of leadership. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. Richard lied to be with. You should have some fun today. Yeah it's a true honor really your your expertise in your your the leadership junkie of all junkies. I think i love your book. The leader within uh. It's really good and it speaks resonates with me deeply. You're the first person that use these three terms. And i've been saying this a lot for the past few years about i thought the keys to unlocking transformational leadership. The compassionate side for sure is authenticity. Transparency vulnerability. I saw those three words a coin together. Your book a handful of times. And it just. I just love that so. You're the first person that i've seen. That's coin those three together. So i appreciate very nice you to say. Thank you very much really interesting experience. When i was working at the white house as appointments secretary to president ford and it was one of these times when i'd been appointed. And maybe you've had this experience to richard where you know right away that maybe you're not quite up to the job. You got a lot to learn. And wondering as fast as i could at the people i was hanging out with you know and i don't do this to namedrop to suggest you sort of how i was feeling at the time you know. I was there with don rumsfeld. Dick cheney colin powell. Bob gates brent scowcroft henry kissinger. That was the senior team. Now i was a part of that team. And so i and i was new to the white house. Twenty nine years old new politics and that's didn't feel like i was quite up to it quite good now. So we had a meeting of that group in the oval office one day with the president as they drifted out. I hung behind. Speak to present. I said mr president. I speak with these. Yes sit down. I said mr president not experienced enough. I'm not smart enough. I'm gonna make a mistake. It's going to embarrass you. And and here's my letter of resignation. And i put on his desk and he looked at it for a moment and he swivelled his chair to look out across the south lawn of the white house rose garden and he came back to me and he said you know warned. The very fact that you've said this to new to me makes you qualified to be here. The fact that i was vulnerable transparent and honest with him he knew he could trust me from that point in time as a result of that he trusted this whole farm kid with a lot of stuff that he showed it ever trusted to do but it worked out to be a really nice relationship. I learned early on that. Those three words are key to really deep relationships. I agree a hundred percent. And i love that story. I remember reading that book. You're right. That's where the first time i saw this phrase those three words together based on that story. What a great baptism by fire for for being around the greatness in being the witness as you open up the book to a standing there once nixon official he was going to resign. And you're able to witness ford kind of sit. There process. what was happening the gravity of what was happening and then go into action. I love that kind of inside baseball aspect of that. Of course. I remember that moment when it happened to but just to be there to witness that. It's just amazing when you're in your twenties late twenties but still you know just honored to be there to to witness the transfer of power and the ability of someone to grasp the significance of what was happening. You and then act upon that significant at that moment in time was really a profound leadership lessons for me. It is stayed with me my whole life to to gather in the data and the information the facts and then to have a plan to act on that and In the precise moment when you need to act yeah right is some of us could have said well. Let me step back from this for six months and figure this out that day he said i. I'd like to have the following six people here at seven. Am tomorrow morning for a transition team. Me and we walked into that room the next morning. He pulled from his jacket. Five pages of notes. He had a vision for what that transition was going to be. And that was a significant leadership.

Ethiopia: a Nobel Peace laureate goes to war

Why China’s Move to Rein In Hong Kong Is Just the Start
"China's move to exert greater control over the semi independent city of Hong Kong caused more turmoil over the weekend does protesters to fide social distancing rules and clashed with police who fired tear gas and a water cannon arresting at least one hundred eighty people critics of. Beijing's move to impose a national security law on Hong Kong. Say that it is an attempt to stifle descent putting an end. The city's independence. The White House said yesterday that China will likely face sanctions for its actions in Hong Kong. So admiral the China is becoming more aggressive by day. Fairly remarkable if you look at it just in recent history that they are responsible for the unleashing of a pandemic that has wrecked the world. Economy killed So many people. We don't know where that death count is going to end up and instead of being back on their heels or working aggressively for a vaccine or are reaching out to the world community. They are actually Acting more aggressive whether it's toward Hong Kong toward Vietnam or even in the concentration camps inside their country what what is going on what. How is the United States failed in its response to Shave Power? And why in the world can we do moving forward? Let's start with the premise. Here let's go back to twenty one thousand nine hundred twenty nineteen teams like a long time ago. We already had a rich basket of disagreement. China South China Sea huge body of water. China claims it in its entirety. Five G. The network controversy as you mentioned the territorial disputes around the edges of the South China Sea with Vietnam the Philippines Taiwan additional pressure on them trade and tear disputes. So we have this very rich. Unfortunately basket of disagreement. Now you drop a nuclear bomb in the middle of that which is called Kobe. Nineteen irresponsibility of the regime in allowing that to get into the wild so to speak. And so you really have this witches brew of relationships and Newsflash. It's occurring during an election year in the United States in which the trump administration predictably is going to maximize the ability to use China. Like opinion OUGHTA and beat it for electoral advantage. So terrible fact pattern. At the moment I think the real question you nailed it show is. What do we do about it? And I'll tell you three things very quickly. I we need a strategy that means not just episodic responses but thinking about diplomacy economics military deterrence bringing that Inter Agency sensibility to the challenges of China. Secondly even more important. We need international coalition. That's all of our allies. In the Pacific and many Japan South Korea Australia New Zealand Malaysia Singapore Thailand be at Phnom Increasingly. We need to internationalize the response to China and that includes the response to co did in third and finally we need to recognize. We've got a bend this relationship with China. We've got to change the terms of it. But we don't want to break it. I E get ourselves stumbling into a Cold War. It's going to be complicated and from now to November is going to be a very difficult stretch water. Well as you talk about. Strategy the United States needs to develop a long-term strategy. We just need to start by having a coherent message to send to the Chinese. We've been so erotic if you look at the president's fawning praise of President Shea and of course we always talk about what he said on January twenty four th when he thanked president she for his transparency and all the great work China was doing. That was a bizarre tweet to send out at the time. This is also the same president. Who who saluted she for consolidating power in the past has more power than anybody since Chairman Mao in that country? But you have that fawning praise one moment Max moment you have a continuation of these erratic trade skirmishes where the president doesn't have an overall strategy and then follow that up with occasional master tweets and insults toward the people of China just because seems to be checking that off his list for the campaign. It's really hard to figure out where Donald Trump stands when it comes to China because any any attack of China any critique of China is usually followed up by the president talking about what a wonderful leader Person President Xi is exactly and reference our earlier conversation. What do you want leaders to do? You want them to bring order. Out of the chaos. He want them to have a plan. You want them to communicate in steady waves and what we don't want to do with China is treated like an on and off switch on the wall that we turn on. Oh we love China. Then we turn it off ups. We're going to get into a war with China. We've got a dial it in. It's like estate like the dimmer on the wall. In your dining room we have got to be able to have a coherent strategy. That is steady and finds balance not this jagged on and off. Switch all the time and again. I'll close on this Henry Kissinger said late last year that we were in the foothills of a Cold War I think we are continuing to ascend that mountain. It is a mistake for both nations. We need to confront where we must when the behavior warrants but we ought to try and find ways to cooperate where we can confront where we must cooperate where we can build a strategy Admiral Stavridis. Thank you very much for coming on this morning
White House or Fight House? Tevi Troy’s new book looks at tiffs and turf wars among White House staffers
"With us and we're gonna talk about that you know the fussing and fighting vet says going on in the White House and don't think for a second that that's exclusive to Donald trump's administration you know it's kind of interesting anytime it's its whatever you're closest to write in history and other things they have to be the worst you know and so Donald Trump his administration's wise it just has to be the worst all the fussing and fighting in in fighting that's going on like no other president before well before you really jump that shark and think that that is the case then you start believing you're hyperbole I once you get your hands on this new book called White House from doctor Tevye Troy bestselling author and former White House adviser okay he's been on the inside he's known as and researched and studied this and he's right about now with his book White House rivalries in the White House from Truman J. trump Dr Troy welcome to the show good to have you with us thanks bill Bradley on talk about played out hello this is this is it this is exciting you know that you know to put this out because you know this conversation has come up from time to time and you always hear from you know the hyperbolic that downhole trump is the worst ever and then you you start bringing back some of the the stories and histories and now here it is you've documented it I imagine if you wanted to go back even before Truman we we have to do episodes inch you know volumes of all the fussing happening in the White House right no absolutely and and we know that they were fighting before experiment where we are perfect I mean you look at the administration of Washington and Hamilton and Jefferson murder each other's throats but the difference is they were cabinet members and when I try to get that in my house how the dynamic change once we had the creation of a White House staff there was no real White House staff before Roosevelt and Truman the first person to enter the White House staff and make change the dynamic in that certainly you have the people who are close to the president meaning in the same building advising him on foreign policy and economic policy and then you might have a treasury secretary or spectators biggest ticked off that somebody else is inviting in his area that was one thing that changed in that that meant that I wasn't quite interesting to note that that the dynamic in the entrance of more humanity just because the more issues right yeah look and government was growing mistake became higher and then also you have this right the best celebrity White House aide the whole idea of a White House staff was supposed to be people with a passion for anonymity but that went away pretty quickly especially in the Kennedy administration when he hired people who are already famous like orcas lessons or to work in the White House is suddenly how celebrity White House they had its own reputation has long ties to the craft and they they could get their word out there if the policies were not going their way and to suddenly you have this idea of leaks and counter leaks you can make you look good in the press and that also at the White House right now make that I talk about the book in the course that is continued and become almost like a to the degree of a tender green black belt when you talk about all this and leaking and stuff going on you know but bad enough that it happens in DC but now of course with the most recent refill we understand that even ambassadors in our state department is running rampant with it as well yeah well you talk about ten degree black belt and that that was Henry Kissinger I'll tell you one great story that's been quite how's that Kissinger was dating Jill St John a very attractive bond girl actress Mandy comes out in the papers that Kissinger's dating this woman and Kissinger ghost and extending complains that his rival Christy William Rogers leaked the information about your retaining but the truth is that your lease it because a he wanted everyone to know he was dating that the truck the bond girl would be he wanted to hurt Rogers any internal wars and bribery deposit so what happened what was it what was the conclusion that well well written exam would rail about all the leaking that happened at the state department and constant complained about it but just not your fat it but at least some of the time we know the kiss your will the guy doing the leaking and then blaming the state department and of course everybody knows because your date of birth second longer up there with a win win corrective measure like you would can degrade black belt in Plato's exactly so he gets the he gets the reward and the award let's talk about president Truman we touched a little bit on that I mean he he he was I guess the modern era of the expanding the staff and and really kind of bringing this into play and of course it's just been kind of kind of a a monolith that like the blob is just been growing unto itself right yes Sir but instrument you have the right there were just unbelievable I don't I'm a presidential historian I've been putting this stuff for decades and the story behind in spite house were were things I'd never even heard of and one breaks during the ministration is that the secretary of state George Marshall as opposed to the recognition of the state of Israel which is flabbergasting to update the business interest on July especially right there at that critical time because it was true and that led the battle for inferred knowledge meant of Israel that would that would be very fight with marshals on the wrong side of it Clark Clifford a junior White House beat it on the right side of it make an argument in front of Clifford Clifford and Truman and Marshall are all arguing out in the White House Clifford wins the argument Truman recognized Israel Marshall is still mad that he never again the clippers or mentions his name for the rest of life right yeah right because so it's pretty petty but yeah such as such as you can't be the government the illusion of the Kennedy Camelot regime you said was not devoid of conflict as well of course in Kennedy do you have this notion of Camelot music wonderful people sitting around a table can you never even heard the term Camelot elections administration that comes from our interview that took place after the administration after he was dead yes but even in the administration there was fighting taking place especially between Lyndon Johnson and Robert F. Kennedy canteen was the product any would be turned general and the president brother Lynn Johnson vice president that you hated each other going back to their time in the Senate together when we can't even the lowly staffer and Johnson with the Senate Majority Leader and they had these nasty nicknames for him brought Robert if they reported Johnson is ruthless corded phone and get a canny referred to by Johnson as bunny boy really didn't like each other and they're always trying well anyway and we've known that that that tension what is it was pretty extreme there between them what else within the Kennedy at Camelot compound anything else that you discovered yeah there was a a a a rivalry between artists less intervention before they collect their prize winning historian who came to the White House when the first intellectual ever worked in the White House and then there was Ted Sorensen it was not as well known but he was closer to Kennedy and there was tension between them that continued even after the administration because the two of them we're kind of bracing to get their books out first hand stories then asked her to stop and stop writing his books but it's different in different book out first plus you're obviously would not agree and there were and the race was on and it it colored their relationship there's tension between them that went on for a long time and I got to imagine especially after the assassination these rivalries it would increase all the more would they not yeah and if there is one great story that dean Rusk with the sector state did not like that Slazenger called him brutalized in silence in meetings during the Kennedy administration implying that he wouldn't say anything that's a rough put it out there the only reason he was silent in meetings this lessons are within the facilities are respected leaker and we would talk about everything that he heard needing three wins Mr this is this is great fun Dr Chevy try I'd say it's good fun because you know the politics is just right for comedy it's it's when we take it too seriously like at times we're doing right now in this current environment then we deprive ourselves of of the little bit of humor in thank you Dr drive for presenting
Why is Aung San Suu Kyi at the International Court of Justice
"Awarding someone the Nobel Prize for peace is always tempting. Fate saw cha the vagaries of human affairs. Yesterday's warmonger is tomorrow's peacemaker and vice versa. That it's not really the Norwegian Nobel Committees Fault when Pulse Charity Makes Mockery of some of their judgements. When you give a piece Gong to someone like Henry Kissinger oh Yasser Arafat? It's just a risk you run. And it is nevertheless startling to see an actual Nobel peace laureate appearing at the International Court of Justice in The Hague to defend the government they lead against allegations of genocide. It's pretty much the one thing that isn't supposed to happen. History had given us the opportunity to give up our best just for a cause in which we believed when the Nobel Committee chose to honor me. The road had chosen of my own free will aw became less lonely path to follow sang suci daughter of the founder of modern Myanmar Aung San and a formidable politician diplomat and and activist in her own. Right won the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen ninety-one at the time she was rivaled only by Nelson Mandela as a universally admired Royat. Avatar of all. That was good displaying exemplary courage in resisting. All that was bad. She led the National League for Democracy as it faced down only terrifying and ruthless military GIONTA which had turned Myanma into North Korea with Palm. Trees saying SUCI spent most of the period between Nineteen nineteen ninety nine and two thousand and ten under house arrest. She was a hero aside from the Nobel Peace Prize. She was awarded the Sakharov Prize. US Congressional Channel Gold Medal and Presidential Medal of freedom an honorary order of Australia. Honorary Citizenship of Canada and Amnesty International's ambassador of conscience since award. Luke pestle made a film about her. U2 wrote a song about and in time she triumphed the NLD won a landslide election victory in two thousand and fifteen though denied the presidency on a technicality. She became state councillor effectively. Myanmar's prime minister it. It was hailed worldwide as a victory for decency determination and patience and now she's denying that she is some kind of an accessory to crimes against humanity he sang Succi has been fair to say on a journey. These ban mind this complex situation and the challenge to sovereignty and security already in our country when you're assessing the intent of those who attempted to deal with the rebellion. Surely under the circumstances genocidal decider intent cannot be only hypothesis loan and it is important to be clear that while Aung Sang. SUCCI is in The Hague. She is not in the dark. She is appearing voluntarily and has not been charged with any crime the allegation before the ICJ EJ is against her country. Not Her the case has been brought by the Gambia. Backed by the fifty-seven members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Asian a coterie which includes several nations who might want to pause before mounting their high horses where human rights are concerned. The allegation is essentially essentially that Myanmar's recent persecution of the Hindu people Myanmar's Muslim minority. Who lived mostly in the country's raccoon state amounts to genocide this? This is a term with specific legal meanings and it will be for the court to determine if events in Myanmar meet the threshold. What is known is bad enough? Enough since two thousand and sixteen perhaps a million ranger have fled Myanmar mostly to neighboring Bangladesh journalists NGOs and the UN win have reported a consistent pattern of atrocious violence much of it directed at civilians not excluding children Myanmar's military known as has the top Madore have consistently claimed that they are waging a counter insurgency against Islamist terrorists though Sang Suci does not directly command the Tatmadaw. Aw this is also the line that she has held. The most sympathetic imaginable interpretation of aren't sang Suu Cheese behavior. And it's a reach is that that she is still in some respects the prisoner of the same military which once held her under house arrest. She may have calculated. This is a compromise. She has to to make to maintain such democracy as me unmanned now has that if she takes hold in the military the military will once again take charge of the country. This is a question unlikely to interest the hundreds of thousands over hinge in now wondering if they'll ever be able to go home again and they of course are the ones who have have survived the Tatmadaw's pogroms justice for the victims. If it is coming at all maybe years away

"Politicians this is where this is where something called the American Servicemembers Protection Act of two thousand two comes into play it essentially it's a law that might be hilarious or terrifying to some of US listening outside of the U._S.. It's a law in the United States the authorizes the use of military force to liberate any American or citizen of U._S. Allied country being held in the International Criminal Court. That's located but in the Hague this has been called The Hague invasion clause people in Europe particularly in the Netherlands. Obviously hate this idea. The Law Aw provides for the withdrawal of U._S. military assistance from countries that agree with the I._C._C. Treaty. It Restricts U._S. participation in U._N.. Peacekeeping unless the U._S. is immune from prosecution so and and there's a provision that says the president can change his or her mind on this whenever due to the national interest wow wow so if for instance Paul's dodgy international past catches up with him and he is he is arrested and taken to the International Criminal Court the U._S. has law on the books that says this country can send an invasion force to you physically rescue him in extricate him from Europe while well Paul whatever you did <hes> you know I'm sure it's <hes> <hes> a much more three dimensional thing that occurred there reasons behind the reasons you did it but you know in the end. We're going to get you back buddy and that also is terrible. Example because Paul is a hero he is and he is a known as a gem <hes> <hes> domestically and abroad but one thing is for sure Henry Kissinger did conspire to do numerous things that were at the very very least unethical dirty pool he actively PRU ably created and participated in a number of conspiracies to advance. That's what he saw as the greater good for the U._S.. On a global stage that is true. It's not a theory that's not a person's opinion and that is a fact. The big question is was it all worth well. We we're going to figure that out in in the next hundred years just really looking back at it. I think in generally when someone passes I think the the harsh realities of a person's life can be viewed. I guess more fully at least by society by history and we can actually talk about in a way that we couldn't when they were still living <hes> so I have a feeling you know unfortunately for Henry Kissinger probably pretty soon he he won't be with US and maybe we'll get a little more light. Shed on exactly what happened. Perhaps perhaps perhaps or it'll go to the grave of them. Maybe oil it will go to the grave. We want to know what you think. Is it true that these sorts of things occur and do you serve a greater good or is that an over simplification. You know what I mean..

"That's a history history professor at New York University saying that you should probably tribute three or four million deaths to this man and this doesn't even touch on the conspiracy theories. Oh No my God again when you are a part of all of these different organizations when and you're essentially the power behind government or at least <hes> you know if if it's a Disney movie he's <hes> who I forget all the main like Jaffar Afar type characters but the the counselor that sits next to the king that whispers dark things into the king or Queen's ear. I mean that's essentially that's that's really whittling down but that's a lot of what he ends up doing whispering to two other people in power who make the decisions and I think when you're when you have that position you are going to be at least targeted by people who see conspiracies if not actually actually taking part in conspiracies absolutely well well said well put so as as you mentioned this is due to his membership in these enormously enormously influential bodies is a member of the Bohemian Grove a member of the Council for relations a member of the Bilderberg Group A member of the Aspen institute a participant in the trilateral commission. We have episodes on pretty much all of those except they believe the Aspen Institute we also need to mention that the the recent antisemitic conspiracy theories come into play here to the harp on Kissinger due to his Jewish background and you'll you'll read you know the these sorts of things saying that he is a key player in some sort of secretive Jewish cabal this gets tied into those allegations of international banking cartels and so on but while the Jewish conspiracy claptrap has been thoroughly and thankfully debunked there is bad news here. The bad news is that banking cartel conspiracies spiracy do have said some of them are very very very true and it is highly likely that Henry Kissinger ran into something like banking gain lead conspiracies during his career. I mean he did want to be an accountant. Oh Wow I didn't even think about that. I didn't think we would have one that goes into one hinges on his accounting. I mean that's a very good point man so he is he's been both oth participants in genuine conspiracies and subject to <hes> speculation on other conspiracy theories series right and for a lot of people the big question is at what point do these policies become war crimes the conspiracies that he created good and enacted at what point do they go beyond <hes> being secretive for the purpose of national security and becomes something that you should prosecute someone for four and what really is the difference between those two things right. Where's the line? Where is the And author of the Eccentric Realist Henry Kissinger in the shaping of American Foreign Policy he he reacts in in a different way throws. Whoa a little cold water on this he says I am afraid that by the standards some of his critics have applied to Kissinger numerous post nineteen forty-five U._S. statesman could be accused accused of crimes against humanity and that applies perhaps to the vast majority of the leaders modern great powers very good point right <hes> Lake at some point if you're in charge of the country? Are you responsible for every bad thing that country does oh gosh it's true. That's kind of a tough truth proof. I guess we have to face a little bit here right absolutely left to face it head on. Let's also let's also continue just a little bit because Del del Perro doesn't believe that Henry Kissinger was very good at his job to be honest. He says he's not some sort of arch manipulator. He says Kissinger was simplistic. Binary even uninformed during his tenure he was dogmatic. He adhered to the zero sum game of international politics and then they'll Pero says in short he wasn't a war criminal. He wasn't a very deep or sophisticated thinker. He rarely challenged the intellectual votes or fads of the time time and once in government he displayed a certain intellectual laziness. Wow that's interesting. It's an interesting take right right. That's saying that saying look the argument. Here is almost like if he's a war criminal everyone else's and also the hypes not real. He wasn't that good at what he did yeah..

"Might say as some imperfections imperfections including massacring millions of people but it's also not communist and it's good to have that chess piece in play hey to to prevent the spread of communism now remember he's working closely with Richard Nixon during a lot of this stuff and he he ends up being one of the primary reasons that Nixon begins wiretapping everybody in recording everybody and he ends up being a part of Watergate or he's involved evolved at least but we can leave that for perhaps another episode <hes> it. You should just know that he was involved in Watergate N.. Wiretapping yes yeah that definitely happened happened. He also aided <hes> Indonesia under the brutal dictatorship of Soeharto in terms of financial aid and military refunding in seventy three he overthrew the democratically elected Salvador Allende in Chile installing the dictator Augusto Gusto Pinochet Yeah and remember he didn't do it with his bare hands like that but man that guy made it happen through <hes> you know I guess engineering thing is a good way to put it then he made it occur with his voice right he puppeteer yes so the also supported Operation Condor Operation Condor was a campaign designed to get these secret police of fascist dictators in South America to work together supporting coups on non-fascist countries and facilitating drug dealing in the region as a way to provide funds for these kinds of activities.

Dissent is just a real pill isn't a guys if you need to crack down on those commies those pinkos hippies you know we don't really have a problem with that. We just want you to know we don't have have a problem with it and that became implicit support of what is called the dirty war. The dirty war resulted in the deaths of more than thirty thousand thousand people in one of the craziest things about those documents that you mentioned Ben that were released in two thousand fourteen is there are counts from several people one of whom room was Robert Hill who was the ambassador to Argentina and it's this conversation that Kissinger had with a foreign minister there named Cassidy and okay so apparently this foreign minister was was really afraid that if they were doing this thirty war they were going to carry this stuff out and they're going to continue doing it. They were afraid that the United States would end up cracking down on their activities in their government in general as a way of fighting against these human rights violations that were occurring right right and then Kissenger says to him. I mean this is paraphrasing but you you don't you don't need to worry about that. That's not gonNA happen right so it is maybe a little bit hyperbolic but it was a breakfast purpose that resulted in the death of thirty thousand people but it wasn't really they were going to they were probably going to make the dirty war happened anyway. Kissinger in this case knew about out and did not stop it and gave them sort of an Atta boy yeah and let's go to one more example in December of nineteen seventy five. He approved the Indonesian nation invasion of eastern more resulting in one hundred thousand to one hundred eighty deaths conflict related deaths US and conflict related.

Perspectives on China and global power
"How will the struggle for power between China and the US play out. And how will it determine the future world order, Fred Stedman, put this question to China expert, Ron meter he was reviewed a series of books looking at the issue from different perspectives. Ron, thanks for coming in. You looked at a number of books for us in a book Sesay about China and the west. And what struck me right? From the get-go was that you talked about this interaction between these great powers, China and the west, the US is being almost unique in its complexity, and I thought, why is that? Why is this more complicated than other great power interactions, that we've witnessed over the centuries? I think it is different. And the reason fundamentally is that we've never seen an engagement between two different types of regime that are so closely intertwined so different in terms of their values. So if you think back to the Cold War, we had at that time, basically, to political and economic systems, which were fiercely opposed to each other, but they didn't actually connect all that much. Of course, we were all terrified at the threat of nuclear war, but the Soviet Union's economy was not a major factor for the west and vice versa that AKU. It's not remotely true for the People's Republic of China. It is the second biggest economy in the world. It is now a primary economic actor in pretty much every single continent of the world and the United States. Of course, in China have been entwined in terms of finance for more than twenty years, more like thirty. Really? So the fact that we now have a rising China, which from the point of view of many liberals in the west but elsewhere has variety values particularly, of course and authoritarian type of government that is very different from what a liberal government would put forward, but it's not a place that we can simply close off or ignore that provides dilemma that was still right in the middle of solving on both sides, and one of the aspects of that. I think I'm right and say you say there's a choice there. Do we engage more with China and we're seeing this stuff that's happening in the world of technology while way, and whether it should be allowed to be part of the five G project or do we push back and one comes with a security risk? And the other one comes up tension financial economic risk that. That's lemon. But let me give you a specific example. Let's take away, which, of course, it's become this company that in the UK where we're sitting. Now, nobody had heard of probably not nobody very few people a year ago. Now, of course, is a headline every single morning on the news usually pronounced in a variety of other creative ways Hawaii audit wrong is not an upset. Right. I've heard is one prominent politician refers to it as Hawaii, which is not quite the same thing. I think that's not so much of an issue. So ten twenty years ago, we might have said that the biggest threat from the Chinese technology sector was that they were basically borrowing without commissioners, the polite way to put it intellectual property from the western world from the US from Britain from Europe Chinese would basically, taking technology that they hadn't paid for an putting into their machines had to be stopped. That is no longer the main problem does exist. But the wider problem is that actually China is now producing its indigenous technology to a very very high standard. So the reason that the United Kingdom, for instance is having a debate about whether or not, they put while way equipment in the five G network is nothing. With intellectual property theft. It's the fact that the cheapest highest quality most effective broadband network. You can have is made by hallway, and if you don't have that, then you're basically saying that you have to give an alternative company, the rights to put in the network that may actually not be at the moment, overs, higher quality. So there's a genuine balance between quality. And as you say, the question, whether there's a security risk or not, that's a new dilemma, not just for the UK but for the entire liberal world fascinating, I wanna come onto the books now because we get a perspective from China. So it's a bit more about a few from Beijing in terms of how these relationships are going to develop, what China sees its role and the other they have different conceptions of types of political systems, one of the books. I've reviewed in this particular China books essay is book leadership in the great powers by yen Shu at home. Professor yen is a very senior scholar in China. He's at Ching-ho university, one of the top institutions in that country. And he's become known. I'd say of the last. Twenty years or more in that particular field as probably one of the three or four best known most respected analysts of China's international relations. Now international relations terms without getting too technical. He's what's known as a realist is the accusation that sometimes put Henry Kissinger, Henry Kissinger, his pushes back and says, he's an idealist in realists, clothing, or was that effect. In other words, what professor yen believes is that power is the thing that actually makes a difference. So that's the position he's always had. That's why this book is so interesting, not just about him, but about China, because it makes actually in some ways rather, different case, a case that, if China is going to take fullest vantage of its rise in the world. The fact that it is now the second biggest economy in the world, and may by GDP be the biggest one within ten years. The fact that it is this huge international actor than it has to change the way, that looks the world, not just talk about power relationships, but also about what you might call the human relations, the narrative, that surround saddened, professor Yannis jesting that it will be time, maybe not yet but. Quite soon for what he calls, a more humane, the what he used the humane view of how China should relate to the rest of the world. Now that is in a sense, part of a process that we've also seen earlier with the most recent hegemony in world politics, the United States, which of course, became a power that had more battleships and more fighter planes, than anyone else particular during World War Two, but really seduce the world through what's become known as soft power. In other words, having a story to tell the world, I read professor Jens Booker saying that China has got the military. It's got the realist power. Now, it has to find the story and does he believe the Chinese leadership is current inclination to they buy that will this is one of the things that you have to read quite carefully in the book. It's not I would say a book to necessarily put next to a thriller at an airport. You know, it does take a bit of time. But I'd say get a glass of wine, give it a good going over, because it's well worth it prevents. The end doesn't at any point in the book talk about the current leadership, so Xi Jinping. The current president of China is not mentioned for Donald Trump is Donald Trump is along. With a few other names. So the United States certainly comes into the line of fire, you might say, but the wider question that he also is one that is very relevant China, which is, is the current system that China's operating, which, as we know is one that has been economically, very, very effective in terms of growth rates in terms of creating a kind of middle class, that's now, see very, very powerful in China and creating a sorta prosperous lifestyle that many consumers in China very much enjoy, but also really closing down political discourse. Is that going to be the way in which trying to get to the next stage in the implication? It's an implication of a statement but it isn't implication, is that maybe China's going to have to go beyond that if one looks at conclusions that he comes through. And again, this is very interesting because it is so much view from Beijing from thinker who is well respected both in the western China in that field, is that there's not going to be a war. This is not a story about a confrontation between China and America on the military front. But the is going to be a sort of battle for ideas and the dominance. Spouts largely economic in the Asia Pacific region. He does say very firmly the Asia Pacific region is where you're going to have to look, if you want to see what comes next for world politics. It's moving away from Europe moving away from North America. The Pacific for yen is where it's at right. Which is also the subject of one of the other books, that you looked up as referrals, China and Japan which comes to some interesting conclusions. I think it's fair to say it makes some interesting observations. It absolutely does Ezra Vogel is a scholar, but also a diplomatic figure who has actually sort of seen the rise and change in America's relationship with Asia, over the decades, he served in the Clinton administration, as secretary of state, and he became very famous in the seventies earliest that with the book who Japan as number one, which was on every business leaders bookshelf, as well as the cost many scholars, but he's always been a speaker both Chinese and Japanese and this book is about China and Japan, their shed history, which he points out, actually is not always as confrontational as it sometimes appears. We tend to think, of course of. The second World War when the two countries did have a massive conflict, of course. But he also points out that, for instance, if you look at statistics in the last few years, a few years ago, when tensions were pretty high between the two countries something like a million million a half Chinese visited Japan pass, not that many that number last year two thousand eighteen is more like eight million. So if you look below some of these surface rhetoric is saying, actually, there is a more cooperative story about economics about tourism about cultural values that are shared the maybe means the countries aren't as far apart as they might be. And this is I think, part of the white of Vogel, viewpoint because he comes from that generation of Americans who sought as part of their duty. I think in the post World War Two era to try and create a sort of agreed shed set of values in a stable community in East Asia America course, encouraged that in Europe, very successfully European Union NATO and so forth. It's never quite worked out in the same way in Asia. But that hasn't stopped a lot of those people actually, I think trying over and over again to create that similar sorts. Of stability for go. Yours decided mentioned former administration official, but other American voices take sort of more by guessing old money once say hawkish view new picked up on one someone. I believe you're actually at one point taught Jonathan ward who's written a book China's vision of victory which sounds alarmist oil is very concerned, and feels the American needs to be much more assertive in its response. That's right. Yes. New Jonathan ward. I taught history when he was an Oxford where I teach. But this book is very much about current affairs, and it's very much about policy not about history as such. And yes, I think it's fair to say that the argument he puts forward in the book is one that says that China is used the phrase hawkish, I'll say, clear and present danger, that's probably the phrase that comes to my mind. When reading it now, should say the book is one that has a great deal of information in it. It's got a lot about military power, and how China's building up its navy in particular. It's got a lot about economic power, and also of course a lot about values and the argument there, essentially is that. The United States, whether it wants to or not is going to have to deal with the fact that China is there to challenge the United States. So in a sense, that's a different story from the end should tone story where he's basically saying look the Americans and the Chinese are both going to be in the Pacific, where they're going to have to engage with each other. What story will, maybe it's time for America to actually set down the red lines if you can set down the red line in the Pacific Ocean. And actually say thus far and no further so between them those books actually point out in some ways, where the difference of view comes in terms of what's going to happen in the next decade in that Asia Pacific region. You mentioned around all the books that sort of sense that there are tensions, there is a competition of ideas, but the, the authors dancing, we're heading towards some military confrontation. And that things will be settled through dialogue to share that. I think you can see a generational difference in these books, which was as I say, in the essay, it's was reading them in tandem, because they all say something slightly different than they make up out of the picture for. Yang Tong speaking from Beijing. But, you know, with I think quite measured frame of mind. The argument is about to powers that have to live with each other, which have the potential to be confrontational, but not necessarily military sense. Maybe more on the economic sense. I think it's fair to say that as revivals book is talking about the areas where you can find agreement rather than disagreement between the actors and that in a sense, reflects his long decades of experience in the region. Jonathan ward is of a different generation. He's in his thirties. He's living, right there in the policy world of Washington DC right now, and the world, he sees is a much more confrontational. One, one in which America and China have different goals, different values different viewpoints. And that maybe just maybe those can't be contained together. Now, we're going to have to see what happens to work out in say the trade war between China and the US whether that actually could reach something more like a confrontation, but reading three books makes you realize that actually all of these viewpoints exist simultaneously. In part of the existential struggle almost is about what? Which one of them is going to prevail. Ron amid. Thank you very much. Thank you for it.

$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. She still living and breathing turnovers that it be easier for her to go into her closet and just grabbed the black turtleneck and put it on. That's why she does it that way. She can focus more. She's not worried about a close. She's worried about changing the world. So there's George Shultz former secretary of state, George Shultz going y'all have some and there's Mike Mattis, and there's Henry Kissinger, and there's venture capital guys. And they're all going. Well, she doesn't really know any science, and we don't know any science. But I think I'll give her one hundred million dollars and that happened Walgreens did that for crying out loud. I'm interested to see the feature film on this. If you watch the dock at least, we'll get a chance to look at her and to see the wacky -ness of it. See how thin it is. But if you want to a sort of a thicker dive on it, then read the book, which is called bad blood, bad blood is the book that you want to read if you really
White House Summit With Big Tech Tackles AI, Job Losses
"Late last week tech leaders discussed at the White House hopes for closer collaboration with the government on artificial intelligence and support for US workers likely to be impacted by its rise Ivanka Trump helped convened the roundtable with the CEO's, including Microsoft's Saatchi, Adela, Google, Sundar Pichai and other notable attendees, including former secretary of state Henry Kissinger here to talk about what we know happened. And what we don't is the Wall Street Journal's Douglas MacMillan joining us via Skype Douglas, either it appears as though there's been a heightened level of concern, it almost appears as though, you know, all the adults are getting into the big room and about to discuss something serious. So what is the state of concern as it pertains to a is impact on the US workforce and our central future as a whole? Yeah. There's a number of topics that they covered at this meeting. The main one probably was a I. I and this concern that as more and more of our world gets automated and more and more industries become automated that a lot of jobs will be replaced by robots and that millions of American workers truck drivers and retail cashiers inmate probably many others that we're not thinking of yet will potentially be out of work that those people will be searching for new jobs. So the the White House has been thinking about this and has been von Trump in particular has been leading some efforts to try to think about how we can prepare those kinds of American workers for jobs of the future. Try to get them new skills. Try to arm them with some data about the job market. But really what what is crucial about this push. And and really the only way that is going to work is if they have the support of industry, and if they have leading company is like, Google and Microsoft involve at the very beginning and coming up with solutions for. For this potential crisis and the American workforce in the American economy, and I know it was very closed door meeting. But you know, there is such such question about where that relationship stands where big tech stands with big government. It's it's certainly had a rocky relationship and going into it. There were a lot of questions about where that dynamic stands actually, surprisingly very little from inside. The meeting has leaked out we run able to get much information about actual content of the discussion, we do know that President Trump himself made it a brief appearance towards the end of the meeting. But we don't know exactly what what happened. We don't know. Exactly. What people said, I think to some extent this is not a formality. But this is a way to kind of help the relations between White House until validly. Those relationships had become a little icy in the first few months of President Trump's tenure in office. You know, he enacted the travel ban that the CEO's tech companies protested against. They have been vocal outspoken critics of other policies, including his immigration policies. It's climate change policies. So there has been kind of this this tense relationship between tech and the White House. I think what we saw was evidence that CEOs such as do not CHAI at Google while they may have their disagreements with Trump's policies. They see a needed to work with this administration and a see an opportunity to build some initiatives together to work together on key areas. Such as a I where more and more tech companies are calling on the government to help regulate that right? And you know, what's really sort of interesting. You look at this. Impressive list was almost more impressive is who's not on it the top three tech companies were missing. So what do we know about any of those relationships? Yes. So three of the largest tech companies in the world. Amazon Facebook and apple were not invited to this meeting. According to senior administration official it's unclear how much to read into that their signs that the White House is engaging with some of those companies of oncology, Trump personally had breakfast in a in a meeting with Tim cook the CEO of apple on during an event see weeks ago in Idaho, where they were talking about the need for stem education, science technology, engineering mass skills for young people in America. I'm so so at least in that case, it doesn't seem like apple was snubbed, you know, Facebook a lot of its own issues going on right now with Washington. So perhaps there, you know, not is not the best relationship there. But you know, I think we should keep an eye on that. And see these are the companies that are involved in these discussions going forward. Certainly if you're having a discussion about the future of a. I you wanna have the key leaders in that at the table Amazon Facebook, Microsoft, Google, apple these are the US titans of artificial intelligence and from from a competition standpoint from an American competition standpoint, the US government needs these companies in order to compete with China, which is quickly becoming a world leader in artificial intelligence and its own companies are going head to head with these American companies in this field of AI for talent for new products that they put in the market, and for, you know, radical new uses of AI that we haven't even thought of yet. So the US government needs to have a close foster close relationship with relationships with all of these companies in order to make sure it's it's an you into compete on a global stage. Good. Yeah. Like, you said, it's, you know, we don't know much. But we know that there's an important conversation. That's been. Started. So it'll be interesting to see how this all pans out. Douglas as usual, thank you so much. Thank you for having me
