There Were 30 Hurricanes And Tropical Storms That Hit The Atlantic In 2020

"Twenty hurricane season goes off the charts. I'm npr chief. Meteorologist paul here. with climate. the two thousand twenty atlantic hurricane season broke several records. And it's not just the record. Thirty named storms or twelve. Us landfalls the way storms behaved. That's got climate change experts talking a record. Ten storms rapidly intensified this season hurricane ada flared from tropical depression two major category four hurricane in just thirty six hours hurricane expert jeff. Master's tracks hurricane transfer yale climate connections. Hi jeff welcome to climate cast. Hi paul what stands out to you. The most from this record atlantic hurricane season you know it was the late season activity. We had two major hurricanes november. Ada and i oughta both reached category four hurricane status. In fact i was a five. The latest category five we've ever seen in the atlantic the fact that we're able to have in november a time when the hurricane seasons normally over catastrophic hurricanes that really speaks to the unusual level of activity that the twenty twenty atlantic hurricane season had put the overall season into context for us. How does this layout compared to previous atlantic hurricane seasons. This was more than double regular season so it was like. We're seeing twenty twenty and twenty twenty one altogether in one year jeff as we watch these hurricanes rapidly intensify so quickly. Now i'm wondering what are the measurable links to climate change there. In his ernie way to quantify the climate change component to this rapid intensification. There was a paper published last year that looked at rapid intensification during the period One thousand nine hundred eighty two two thousand nine and they used a climate model to study that and they found that using the climate model could not account for the rapid intensification without using human caused climate change and that makes a lot of sense because he does energy and when you've got a lot more heat energy available to a hurricane you're gonna see more rapid intensification. You mentioned the november storms. We saw those back to back. Category four and five hurricanes hit. How can that level of human and economic destruction be a driver of climate migration the main gdp driver for the hunters economy which is the patriots hula valley with about two million people that generates sixty percent of their gdp and they basically had their economic activity destroyed their so without any economy. And with a lot of your crops by the hurricane people don't have anywhere to go. Nothing they can do to generate an income and defeat themselves so we saw the back in nineteen ninety eight. When mitch hit we had hundreds of thousands of hondurans leave and seek future elsewhere. We seem like we're in this era of climate change enhanced super hurricanes and seasons. How do these impact those of us. Who don't live on the coast. I made way all pay higher insurance rates to fund the people who do live on the coast who are subject to these flooding events. In fact the national flood insurance program is more than twenty billion dollars in debt. Thanks to all the storms. We've seen in recent years and you know here in michigan where i live.

Georgia's Reopening Has Been 'A Disaster' For Some Retailers Desperate For Revenue

Georgia's Reopening Has Been 'A Disaster' For Some Retailers Desperate For Revenue

"Republican Georgia governor. Brian Campbell is one of the first to declare a state ready to really open for business and less than two weeks later. The results are not good. Ceo of an axe throwing lar- told the local business journal a few days ago that the reopening weekend was a disaster. We had to customers all weekend. And although malls are open they are mostly deserted. People are not rushing back into economic activity. The reason that's obvious it's because of the virus is still. They're still very present threat and there are already signs that in some parts of Georgia things are actually accelerating getting worse. In fact governor kept himself came out yesterday and warned about a growing outbreak in northeast Georgia in an area synonymous with Georgia's large poultry industry quickly. Becoming one of the States. Most affected areas joining me. Now the woman who ran against Brian Cap for Georgia of the governor of Georgia's Stacey Abrams. She also heads up. The southern economic advancement project was helping to alleviate the financial stress that so many are facing amid the pandemic. And let me start on on that question. Stacey it's great to have you tonight in terms of thinking about the sort of economic pain here. I mean when people talk about wanting to reopen. I think that what they're saying is this is terrible. That people unemployed. They don't have money they can make rent. We've seen food insecurity. Go up like how do you think about cushioning that blow or dealing with that problem as we fight the virus? I? It's a legitimate concern. But it has to be prioritized with actually having an economy and having consumers to participate south has the highest poverty rate one of the highest unemployment rates one of the lowest insurance rates and we also see some of the highest death rates and the highest infection rates. We do not have the public health infrastructure to reopen Georgia or any of the southern states. But we're also seeing the most vulnerable populations being forced back into production. Those poultry workers are not workers who are making lots of money. These are folks who have no choice but to go back to work particularly because the president trump's actions left week and those who are being infected not necessarily have access to Medicaid or to any health. If they need to be treated what do you think about the economic effects of this decision by Governor Camp? Right so I mean the idea. Is that you open up and then you can get the economy going but the early signs in your state which is really kind of sort of a pilot here is that people. Don't rush out to go do stuff they were doing before. Just because the governor said you're open for business. Georgia's a cautionary tale to every other state. That's thinking about reopening first of all. We've SEEN OUR RATE SKYROCKET BY FORTY PERCENT. Since the announced reopening the soft relaunched moving into now the near full reopening we seen our rates of infection jump to thirty thousand or death rate is around thirteen hundred. We remain one of the top states for the infection. And we're still very low on the rate of testing. There is no correlation between reopening the state and actually restarting the economy because there are no people who can take advantage of this reopening except for the workers who are being forced to risk their lives. And as you said earlier we're watching concrete issue with food insecurity rising because the south tends to have the lowest public benefits and so people who are already vulnerable already on the edge being shoved over. And there's no real relief coming from the State. There's this this false notion that if we reopen the economy everything will work out and that's just not true.

You're happy with but just know that behind the scenes homeowners insurers are facing significant financial pressures.

"You want to wait a while to see if Sixteen or seventeen year old. You got some time. I'm this picture could change it could so you don't want to react too strongly as far as transferring the plan so the tax would then be his lower tax rate than yours and giving him ownership of the account. You need to let the clock run till he is. I'm trying to remember the definition of when you're no longer dependent now for financial purposes. I don't want to give you a wrong answer but my memory memory. Is it somewhere around age. Twenty five where you could potentially transfer the ownership. Although that is the rules on that are very particular in the five twenty nine plan your end but then if he were to take the money at that ATP points never used for education then there is a ten percent federal penalty and then Tax as well so it's an ugly amount of taxation. So it's Best I was right. It's age twenty five. Okay so thank you Joel for finding that so you give the clock time to run and also I mean between now and then his feelings feelings about education may change the other possibility. Is You be a very generous relative to niece or nephew or some other family member who would then have money to pay for their education. Okay yeah that's a good option so we'll We'll hang tight and see how things developing consider that it's closer to twenty five in the rules again about how you can change ownership and all that those so much has changed with five twenty nine over the years. There's who knows nine years from now. What the rule book will be then? Today's car courageous moment is special heads up for you. In those is beautiful investigative reporting by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and there are people that are specifically trying to salute your retirement accounts for one ks. That sort of thing because federal law has not caught up with protections from hacking four. You as the owner of a 401k. Plan so criminals are hacking into your account and and then sending instructions to the company that handles the 401k pretending to be you and having the money sent Out Now no federal law protects your account from hacking. But what you should know is that many of the companies unease that handle 401k's do provide protection for you in the event your account is hacked. But you can't count on that since it's not law which you should do is make sure that you regularly monitor your 401k. At least by checking the statements oftener mailed only four times a year but at least when it comes in make sure no funny stuff has happened the other thing is set up two factor authentication authentication virtually every 401k provider in the country offers an additional security step. They will give you a list of choices. Usually I usually that if somebody tries to hack into your account they need a one time use code that may have gone to your cell phone or somewhere else they they will not have access to and will not be privy to being able to use as a way to take over your account. Remember these two things so you don't suddenly have a 401k. Get sliced to nothing. It's my pleasure to welcome you here to the Clark Howard show where it's about..

"Ripoffs a special heads up for you coming coming in. Just a second and coming up yet later in today's Clark Regis moment a need to talk about things you can do to protect your retirement. Accounts counts from Crooks. But right now I have the great pleasure to be joined by the Great Dave Lazarus of the Los this Angeles Times. And actually you're in. How many newspapers around the country? Actually I've asked that question. Seems so so. The answer's doesn't But I can't get a full tallying but it's an exciting prospect. The idea that the work appears all over the place and you become a multimedia star doing TV radio newspaper You podcast to terminally knowledge regular thing. right now a lot of that goes into the newsletter letter. We'll see about the podcast but for people who don't know who you are you are consumer finance writer extraordinaire or whatever you call yourself. So I think of myself as Jason stay some but with more hair you know you just gave a popular culture reference. I I don't even know what that is. Oh dude come on fast and furious keep up. Yeah I'm I'm kind of out of it popular culture. I know nothing you know. They just did the nominees for the Academy Awards. I know anything anybody was nothing. I'm just out of it but at least you're on top of the consumer stuff and that's counts and you are too and you're cool with popular culture all right so you have people that call you in great distress as I do too. And there's one that just seems to get worse and worse and it involves loves the grandparents scam. What's going on? Yeah and listeners. To your show are obviously going to be familiar with the grandparents scam. The long and the short of it is a senior gets a call from someone purporting to be a loved one typically eight grandchild who comes across and says. Oh Grandma GRANDPA. You have to help me. I've been arrested did. I'm being detained. I need bail money. Wire me the money and of course it's all a rack. It's all a fraud but it preys on seniors willingness leanness and and really desire to do right by loved ones and it results in millions of dollars in losses to seniors every single year. Because they they just get caught up in the moment and don't take that extra beat to be able to say yeah. I didn't think my grandchild was in England or Ford or wherever and before for you know what they wired the money never to be seen again and in my call them. Not only did I tell the story of a southern California man who twenty seven thousand dollars to this racket but I asked the question should banks and other financial firms being doing more to protect seniors from this sort of thing. And I'll tell Okay Clark. It's fucked to really lively debate online as to where that line should be the difference. Basically between corporate responsibility versus Individual Responsibility Audie interesting conversation and the place. I come down on this as even though some seniors may not need a little helping hand in this regard many do and the fact that millions of dollars get swept up in this scam every single year tells you that not enough is being done. The problem is banks are required by law OUGHTA put through a lawful transaction. So if a senior comes in and says I want to wire my entire savings account to somebody by law. The bank needs to do it but what I suggested. Take that extra moment and have the bank teller just simply say hey. Are you familiar with something called the grandparents scam and see if that one brief the intervention might be able to save people a lot of heartache. Well you know the the banks in some states are under a requirement. Weyermann that they are to be there too and they're protected. Tower holds up transaction. Ask questions and tellers. Being trained and people bank officers being trained to spot where an elderly customer may be getting scammed in many different ways not just a grandparent. Scam seems to me that that is a reasonable responsibility to expect of a bank and a banker. I agree completely completely. The American Bankers Association tells me that most banks offer this training to tellers and most banks strive to do right by their customers. But the fact that I'm writing about a guy who was twenty seven thousand bucks that tells you maybe not enough is happening. And his case the teller did step up. The teller did say hey. Why are you wiring this money? The guidance says well it's personal and like most victims of the grandparents game. He had been explicitly told by the scammers. Don't penalty buddy because I could have consequences for your loved. One the thing is is should have gone the next step and and when I was asked by others what do you expect that person to do. The answer is simple. You discreetly say. Have you ever heard of the grandparents camp. Have you called your loved one prior to this would. Would you like a private office from what you could make the call right now. Those are very simple things it any bank could do and certainly they have the resources to do it. God knows most. It's banks have a lot of empty offices and empty teller stations these days and that could make a big difference but many banks don't do it in fact I heard from a lot of seniors who said Yeah I was surprised when I got victimized by this that nobody stepped up to stop it. So let's talk prevention. When is the Best Cure? If you're hearing US talk right now. Make sure that if you have aging relatives that they are aware about how this thing plays and always call you text you whatever to verify that there is an actual problem and ninety nine point nine percent of the time you'll find out it's just a scam. Yeah that's very important advice also. AARP advises look. Don't even pick up the phone if you don't recognize the number let it go to the answering machine and that'll give you the chance to take that extra beat to see if this is something you genuinely need to worry about. But I'm with you Clark. Ninety nine point nine percent of the time there is no danger to your loved one and if this is Jim it problem they're we're not going to hesitate when you say. Hey can I take a couple of minutes just to make a quick phone call. Let me get back to you. If it's legit they're going to say of course do that if they tell you know no no calls. Don't tell anybody big red flag. David Lazarus thank you so much for joining us and you continue to be there for our fellow consumer. Thank you like I'd say Jayson statium look it up.

Accounts counts from Crooks. But right now I have the great pleasure to be joined by the Great Dave Lazarus of the Los this Angeles Times. And actually you're in. How many newspapers around the country? Actually I've asked that question. Seems so so. The answer's doesn't But I can't get a full tallying but it's an exciting prospect. The idea that the work appears all over the place and you become a multimedia star doing TV radio newspaper You podcast to terminally knowledge regular thing. right now a lot of that goes into the newsletter letter. We'll see about the podcast but for people who don't know who you are you are consumer finance writer extraordinaire or whatever you call yourself. So I think of myself as Jason stay some but with more hair you know you just gave a popular culture reference. I I don't even know what that is. Oh dude come on fast and furious keep up. Yeah I'm I'm kind of out of it popular culture. I know nothing you know. They just did the nominees for the Academy Awards. I know anything anybody was nothing. I'm just out of it but at least you're on top of the consumer stuff and that's counts and you are too and you're cool with popular culture all right so you have people that call you in great distress as I do too. And there's one that just seems to get worse and worse and it involves loves the grandparents scam. What's going on? Yeah and listeners. To your show are obviously going to be familiar with the grandparents scam. The long and the short of it is a senior gets a call from someone purporting to be a loved one typically eight grandchild who comes across and says. Oh Grandma GRANDPA. You have to help me. I've been arrested did. I'm being detained. I need bail money. Wire me the money and of course it's all a rack. It's all a fraud but it preys on seniors willingness leanness and and really desire to do right by loved ones and it results in millions of dollars in losses to seniors every single year. Because they they just get caught up in the moment and don't take that extra beat to be able to say yeah. I didn't think my grandchild was in England or Ford or wherever and before for you know what they wired the money never to be seen again and in my call them. Not only did I tell the story of a southern California man who twenty seven thousand dollars to this racket but I asked the question should banks and other financial firms being doing more to protect seniors from this sort of thing. And I'll tell Okay Clark. It's fucked to really lively debate online as to where that line should be the difference. Basically between corporate responsibility versus Individual Responsibility Audie interesting conversation and the place.

Teslas Auto Insurance Gets Off to a Rocky Start

"Business Wars daily is sponsored by audible audible has the world's largest selection of audio books and Audio Entertainment Start Listening with a thirty day audible trial by visiting audible dot com slash B w daily or by texting. Bw Daily to five hundred five hundred from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business worse daily on this Thursday September nineteenth can self driving car or one with driver assist technology drive more safely than you can. That question is at the heart of how much car insurance may cost in the future and if you're a tesla owner the very near future future late last month. Tesla debuted its latest new product. Auto Insurance Tesla's are famously among the most expensive cars in the country you to ensure one reason why Tesla owners were so interested when Elon Musk tweeted his plans to offer insurance must promise that the company could offer premiums that would be twenty to thirty percent less than those from traditional insurance companies. Tesla has several advantages that should make for lower premiums must claimed claimed those advantages include Tesla's knowledge of its own cars and driving safety system called autopilot. That's intended to help drivers avoid accidents and of course the precise driving data collected by cameras and GPS systems installed in the vehicles themselves. Tesla is in the only company using data to determine are driving risk and how much to charge for coverage shop for any insurance policy and you're likely to be offered the opportunity to install a tracking device in your car. You know the the kind of transmits your driving habits for better or for worse directly to your insurer in return. They promised discounts to good drivers well. Whether you you take the offer depends on how you feel about privacy how much money you're likely to save and how confident you are and you're driving and possibly whether you like the idea of keeping electronic tabs on your teenager who was newly behind the wheel. What's new here is that the data tesla collects on its owners isn't really optional? It's how how the vehicles work and that Tesla says allows it to get more accurate pictures of your habits from how often to how far and how fast you drive it still tesla says it's not using individual information to price insurance at least not yet instead like regular insurance companies. Tesla is grouping groupings. An- anonymous data of course insurance rates are affected by other things as well including your location the model value of your car and your age obviously obviously Tesla can't control any of those things still it's offering perked the interest of current Tesla owners and could help Tesla's sell more cars by reducing the insurance coverage sticker shock if that coverage is in fact twenty to thirty percent less well that turned out to be a big if on Launch Day August twenty eight the first excited customers went online for quotes but that excitement rapidly turned to scorn in many cases those quotes were far higher than the price is owners were paying at companies like USA and gyco according to scores of comments in Tesla owner forums and other online sites so what happened was musk overly optimistic. Well know many of those. sky-high quotes seem to have been mistakes stemming from bugs in the algorithms that determine prices. Tesla took it sight down for a few hours the same day to fix the problem problem. Since then at least some customers have been seeing promise savings on twitter. One customer boasted that his insurance for 2017 Model X. Through allstate was more than four hundred dollars a month his Tesla insurance quote about seventy bucks. The company's insurance offering isn't designed solely for the prophets. It's it can bring to Tesla. It's also intended to help drive badly lagging car sales one factor in those slowing sales may well be the high cost of ensuring the vehicles witness another other twitter user a woman named Katie who tweeted on September third insurance prices have been the biggest thing holding me back from getting my Tesla. Please get this to Illinois Asap while Tesla is the number one selling electric car in the US electric vehicles still make up a tiny percentage of all car sales so tesla insurance insurance is hardly likely to shake up the huge auto insurance business right away but down the road well it could very well disrupt the insurance industry as we we buy more electric cars or when other automakers decide like musk to compete with the allstate's in Geico's of this and I'm wondering this business for his day.

Aid effort picks up momentum as some Bahamians seek way out

"Wanna turn now. The former fema administrator craig fugate craig the situation. The bahamas looks extremely dire particularly nabucco. What what do you see as the most important priorities right now and do you think the government there has the capacity to make sure that real genuine humanitarian disaster doesn't set in now well the bahamian national former spanish agencies coordinating a lot of things i party is going to be searching rescue <hes> recovery of the of those that we lost and still reaching those areas and start getting supplies in there and i think thing we've got to remember. This is the bahamian lead response. The united states has already set the u._s. Agency for international national developments office of foreign disaster assistance disaster response team to work with the bahamian government as resources teams are starting to flow in the area <hes> but as you just heard into you can get into the knowledge. You really can't get much. Is this going so that's going to be the first party. It'd be able to get back onto the islands. Let's search and rescue recovery and the immediate supplies that are gonna be needed. Start stabilizing those islands. What's the most important thing for folks to have. I imagine it's just it's clean water is the first thing and and shelter and then getting power backup yeah but i think the other thing is is the most important thing his neighbors helping neighbors all across these islands. Most of the initial help in response is just bahamians helping each other so you're going to go from that to once you get everybody. Buddy rescued is the basic things of safe drinking water shelter start looking at what is going to take to get infrastructure back online. I won't be surprised that there maybe decisions made for some people to relocate to family on other islands <hes> just given to the devastation. That's there you know we we're in the living through the front edge of an narrow of of increasingly extreme weather and climate disaster and climate crisis. Are we getting better as a as a sort of civilization at at at dealing with disaster preparedness and rescue and rebuilding no we're not no we send the bill back the way it was. We we tend to plan for what we're capable of and then we soap. It's not that bad. You know climate change. You can talk about all you want to. I think we need to be talking about how we're adapting getting our communities our systems in our infrastructure for what has already happened in his happening now. What what would that adaptation look like. What do you mean by that well in the states. The big thing here is making sure our building codes reflect the increasing impacts that we look at our flood problem not software defined by insurance rate maps but what could flood. We're seeing rainfall events in the u._s. Post tropical non-tropical that a lot of this flooding isn't even in in the areas that are designated as high risk flood zones by fema so we need to get out of our heads to looking at the last hundred years in historical events is preparing as for what's happening because seemed like every couple of weeks every couple of months every couple of years robbing record-setting events that means we have no recorded history of looking backwards is not preparing us. That's a really really really important point craig fugate. Thank you so much for being here.

"Your wi health insurance rates over it part of me thinks you know what that's exactly what they should do emotional realize this is exactly what they're going to do because if you get your health care through the government right this is the type of thing you're going to be facing her and then you know what people will probably choose the private market a lot more often because the private market will have to compete in the will do those things and make your life your life unlike with the government's going to do with it there I mean I think there's a good argument to say you know what maybe if you're taking money from the government maybe they should control most of your life you know what we had that impossible burger yeah has anybody had the impossible Whopper yet yes many times other here in Texas area could you could you get one going to take another test I do I do if it does I said when I saw the commercial for the impossible Whopper I look at my son and I said that's the future because if if it is as good as the impossible burger that I've had before yeah if it is if it just taste like meat I don't care I'd like the taste of meat okay I like the texture of meat I like a good steak and they can't make a good steak yet but if they can make a steak that is just as good and it's not meet I don't care yeah most people are on it like they want what they want they would prefer not to have all of the side effects of you know if you're on the left global warming if you're on the right it might be animal stuff or whatever it is like you to up for further right if you can get it for the same cost and get the same protein and tastes like why would you want to be great at it again that's how the free market works you know I I finally how long I've been working on solar energy at my house all my god okay that's been it's been an adventure spend an adventure and I've spent off fortune an absolute fortune trying to do it it's not. it wasn't ready for prime time okay now it is now it is I finally have a system in the last year or so that can provide all of my energy needs great and it's it's unbelievably inexpensive for where it was still out of price range but it's coming there's no reason to to mandate everything it's calming yeah X. server would love that yes I mean conservatives will buy a new idea the greeter tire off the great it's cheaper I know if the you know the global warming concerns of it addresses those fantastic right but the idea that in the end we're gonna have an independent energy source that could be cheaper and clean that's just a fantastic development for everybody in well conservatives cheered on no it's not good for everybody they have promise that they are not going to build another nuclear.

"Give the data at the beginning of the hour of each each hour of the program. Here is <hes> Tuesday Ju. I'm sorry yeah Tuesday July the thirtieth two thousand and nineteen and I believe Tom Scutari is on the line with us from Talk Media News. I'm told he is actually not with US quite yet but <hes> expect Tom to be <hes> joining us very shortly. <hes> Typically Talk Media News folks call in just after the C._B._S.. News at ten o'clock and the <hes> the <hes> conversation today will be <hes>. I'm sure always as always very insightful. Tom Tom's a very thoughtful guy in his as an expert on on military and international relations military policy he <hes> he is a <hes> a veteran veteran journalists in in Washington and really knows these issues of up down and sideways and one of the reasons. I love talking with Thomas. He has that that perspective that you get when you've been doing something for quite a while and coming covering this <hes> this beat <hes> the I think the top story will probably be talking talking about with. Tom Is GonNa relate to the resignation of Dan Coats as the director of National Intelligence for the United States and the picked by president trump trump of representative John Ratcliffe Republican of Texas. He's a member of the U._S.. House and it was actually gained a fair amount of prominence last week is Robert Mueller. The special counsel testified in front of the House judiciary and intelligence committees. <hes> representative Congressman ratliff was actually very outspoken on on this idea that the <hes> it was an improper prosecution because the president <hes> never could be charged under the under this interpretation by the Justice Department of the Constitution so <hes> he clearly is a big defender of president trump and that some some critics have said similar to William Bar. Who's he's going to have <hes> president trump's interests more higher up in his mind than perhaps the interest interest of the of the country <hes> Thomas Criteria joins us now and good morning Tom Good morning happy Tuesday? Happy Tuesday to you as well. I was just <hes> talking about representative ratliff Radcliffe the <hes> congressman from Texas Yeah. He's a he's a fan of the White House us now from his the blistering attacks on Robert Muller Muller appeared before the House committees last week that got his cue rating up high hi in the White House and <hes> whether hit that serves as a qualification to be the top person in intelligence world here <hes> <hes> here in D._C.. And it remains to be seen he didn't generate a lot of enthusiasm among senators including Republican senators so that remains I do <hes> that paths remains to be trod. Yeah I mean. Do you think that there's a chance that he his nomination will be rejected by the Republican controlled Senate. I think I would look more to what's happened in the past with a couple of other names at the president's voted for different positions like her con Security Exchange Commission these names get floated and then there's not a lot of enthusiasm for these individuals and the nominations never get sent to the Senate okay. There's not the chance for the normally they have a rough hearing or a actually a negative vote which would be a first because none of no nominee sensitive Senate has been rejected yet despite the Senate and any any variation from the Supreme Court to you know defense sector recently. I'll that's worth bearing in mind. Yeah I just wanted UH rolling the tape back to last week and reckless questions <hes> to <hes> special counsel Robert Muller. I actually thought he had a legitimate point or at least one that that brought to mind <hes> which was that basically <hes> there really isn't a path that is <hes> sort of normal in American law for a special for a special prosecutor to any kind of prosecutor <hes> to get to a place where well you know I have all this evidence but I can't bring a charge because there's a Justice Department apartment policy against bringing a charge <hes> and you know and and his point was unfair to the president <hes> also <hes> also unfair to the president's critics I mean the there's gray area where there's really no satisfactory resolution for either side and and <hes> <hes> and <hes> you know I I mean I really wait raise the question in my mind about whether we should have some kind of a law that says that Justice Justice Department policy is null and void well. I think that <hes> you know your observation is is on point in the sense that he raised an an interesting point for discussion point flop that exist <hes> if you I I think the interpretation is whether he did that from a pure legal perspective to opine about something that needs enhanced or correct it as as you point out or whether to shoot down the whole mullet probe the what impressed the White House apparently is is the emphasis and Histrionics and he put into the question yeah the potential legal <hes> <hes> you know the bait point. I guess the president likes that history onyx right. That's his thank you for correcting my pronunciation what I meant yeah this. His wife used to be a print reporter and not radio okay. You made the transition well well. You know I don't know I I've heard enough history. onyx in my life that I long ago learned how to get that one anyway. <hes> yeah I I mean I think there's there's really a big question about whether this Justice Department policy <hes> is is the right is the right thing I mean and and and actually I was I was urging that somebody tonight one of the moderators tonight and tomorrow night democratic debates ask these candidates dates you would you would you urge Congress to pass legislation basically canceling out this Justice Department policy. Would you sign it when it comes to your desk if they do pass it <hes> but that's says I bet that'd be a Lotta yeses on that. All these decisions about the future you think about the current that is true Yeah Yeah <hes> more on Baltimore. President Donald Trump courted controversy this weekend with a flurry tweets describing Baltimore is a quote discussing rat and rodent infested invested mess and what are we. What's the latest on ironic that you know how running that the his son a larger Kushner's family owns off apartment buildings involving more than have been cited repeatedly for code violations? <hes> isn't that the irony of life so often it turns around <hes> my my feeling on a president is clear on what he or she says carries law weight and one who was president should be careful about what they say. Twitter is wonderful communication tool among those in available at least little room for nuance nuance and clarity however and in the president in these kind of bombastic tweets <hes> gives his supporters the red meat that they wished to the to non and it gives his opponents the vitriol that they wished to tout the show how a sunset and it doesn't leave any really room for thoughtful discussion listen. There are parts of Baltimore where you know people have shown over the weekend reporters flooded down there and shown photographs and video of of garbage on the street Saddam has been picked up and dilapidated housing images that you might be able to find most likely in a lot of major cities doesn't make it right. It's a problem of urban urban areas that needs to be addressed <hes> that's that's the challenge of picking up garbage last. I remembered as local city. That's one of the things talking with Bob Ney about this yesterday and I said does the president really understand sort of the different levels of government that we have federal state local governments and if you're talking about picking up garbage in Baltimore that's not usually the the executive job of Congress member of Congress like Elijah Cummings and so you know this is this is more just theater. I mean I yeah yeah now a member of Congress. I'm not thinking Carcelen Cummings at this point. I'm generally speaking a member of Congress who's been in Congress for a while and has a strong strong following in a local area he or she could go to the mayor of a city. Say listen what's going on in our in city in our in our community. You know we need to get this and this. We're getting new federal federal money. How's it being you know? There's a role to play a monster and the governor could do the same thing. It's not like there's no lull but you're right the actual picking up the garbage paving leaving the streets etc etc.. That's the city function a bigger small and and <hes> that you know that's that's the you can't. It's like when candidates always say they're gonNa do this this this about education in this country. That's kind of a it's kind of a fake issue because the federal government doesn't have a lot of direct roles in education they do have food stamps and other things like that. I'm not saying there's not a role but you know we know that state and local issue for the most part it's a good point and and one which many the <hes> politicians SORTA gloss over at at their convenience well. There's a surprise dog biting a man Dan Yeah right here and by the way the Sun will come up tomorrow. I think <hes> so the the some stuff is hey. We yeah the question from a caller. Let's go to Fred of newry. Hi Good Morning Good Morning <hes> hey if the chain I mean if the North Koreans I have nuclear weapons that forced them to abide by the N._A._S._D.. Theory if they don't they'll commit national suicide right mutually assured destruction referring to right fred if the Chinese if the North Koreans have nuclear weapons does that force them to <hes> subscribe to the theory is right puts it. What do you think Tom I would take generally speaking the North Koreans? Don't those sort of Korngold rules of the game. The rules of the road don't apply to North Korea because they follow their own drummer. How's that for Missing Document Nash? They'll commit national suicide suicide if they decided to use a nuclear weapon well. I think that any nation that uses a nuclear weapon against another nation risks that type ooh retaliation in the series works because Pakistan and India haven't done it yet well the issue with North Korea and tell me what you think about this time but but my recollection election is an awful lot of the South Korean population that live very close to population centers in the north so you you worry you would worry in a big way about vowed harming significant parts of South Korea with any kind of nuclear regulatory talk on the North Right. Yeah harming is a fast understatement. You're absolutely correct back now. I mean almost all south. Korea's is is within range of North Korean missiles okay now North Korea has not yet demonstrated. They have a nuclear weapon and the second able to put that nuclear weapon on a you know like a missile is is the next step <hes> but nevertheless your point is this is why we forget about it. We're we're we're miles. You know President Short Reign Michels they can't face yeah but they could hit Japan South Korea and so those populations particularly South Korea easy easy targets targets for for North Korea if an huge population soul is just miles from the border of course that's the majors the largest population center in the country and that would be under severe duress to say the least yeah so I I mean I think North Korea and South Korea present a special case here. Hey Fred I gotta get but and and Tom. Thank you very much <hes> for the of your insights today. I'm sure we'll be talking again in the near future my guests in this upcoming segment our Don George The C._e._o.. Of of <hes> Vermont Bluecross Blueshield out out to post here and Don George. Thanks very much for coming in this morning. Thanks for having me also having a studio with this Mike Fisher he is with Vermont Legal Aid in the healthcare advocate with remind legal aid Mike was long. I was a chair of the House House. Healthcare Committee it in the legislature for awhile and now is in the advocacy role. Mike thanks very much for coming in this morning as well. It's good to be here Dave and so I wanted to check in with you gentlemen because because <hes> we are looking at a a request for increases from the to health insurance companies to prominent health insurance companies Vermont who <HES> which <hes> sell health insurance policies.

"That <hes> Senator Sanders <hes> you know there <hes> Democrats <hes> running for President or having <hes> debates and in Detroit <hes> today and tomorrow tenement yesterday he took a group of <hes> I think about a dozen <hes> individuals across the border from Detroit to Windsor Canada rate where where they bought <hes> we're able to buy <hes> <hes> I th I think it was insulin at <hes> ten percent of what they were have to pay in Detroit they just to just to make the point and that there are there are ways to lower prescription drug costs here allowing the import importation. <hes> <hes> is is is one way of doing that and I think <hes> I'm glad the Senator <hes> highlighted that with his trip and by the way when they're when they're selling that those drugs in Canada they're still making money. Oh yeah you know so. They're not giving them away. They're still making money but just not as much money as they make here in the U._S.. Yup Hey we have a caller on the line. <hes> can we go to Mary Randolph. Hi Good Morning Gentlemen Good Morning. Obviously it'd be voting booth is is where we can where we can speak but what do we do today. What do we do this morning that can take action and speak to those to set the need to change these laws <hes>? It's just not fair to the American people well you you know as is <hes> as Dave mentioned the delegation i. I don't know if you're calling from Vermont. <hes> let's see who you are but the delegation Vermont is <hes> AH is unified in <hes> addressing the high cost of prescription drugs <hes> so they're on board obviously <hes> but you know you what you can do. Is You have friends and other <hes> other states and other congressional districts <hes> perhaps there <hes> a member of Congress. They're they're two senators aren't as supportive of some of these costs control measures the prescription drugs they need to call them. They need to go to town hall all meetings <hes>. I'm hoping <hes> that <hes> during these debates we'll we'll get <hes> maybe today tonight in Detroit. We'll get some questions about about prescription drugs and <hes> I'd like to see <hes> the moderators ask all of the Democrats would you support negotiating <hes> for the best price for drugs research with the pharmaceutical companies by the federal government like to see everybody. Take a stand on that <hes> and and you know we we have a president who campaigned on <hes> protecting social security and Medicare and improving them. He hasn't done a whole lot in that regard but he's for Korea. He's up for reelection two so he should be reminded. <hes> there's campaign promises have to turn into more than promises if he's GonNa be expecting we get the votes from <hes> the American citizens and Mary sometimes I feel like our delegation is so strong on a a lot of issues that many liberal-leaning Vermont irs which make up the majority of Vermont as we we see in election results and polls and so on and so forth <hes> it almost gets a little frustrating sometimes I I would think there's not really much point calling the delegation for Vermont because they're already there so they're already there but I I think I think it's worth if if <hes> congressman Welsh or the Su- senators <hes> <hes> have town meetings <hes> they need to be thanked need to be encouraged <hes> to <hes> <hes> push these ideas <hes> and among their colleagues so don't don't wouldn't take him for granted. They are solid all three of them. <hes> it's a small delegation but it's a very <hes> supportive delegation on when it comes to senior your issues Medicare social security and all the rest and you know one of these I was GonNa Suggest Mary to is that if you have out of state friends and relatives so fun when you're talking to them get them to call members of Congress and Senators <hes> because you know that's that'll be that'll have a big impact out there so one would open thank anyway. <hes> that a reasonable strategy maximum richmond absolutely absolutely you know as more the more people that are aware there are some <hes> measures that would help them with their drug costs. <hes> the the more likely it is that we'll see some real real progress legislatively. Yeah these are these are difficult issues for a lot of people when you see the way the price physically if something something like insulin has gone up in the last couple years I it just it it really is <hes> presents great difficulty for people who absolutely need that drug and and <hes> don't have an option of saying well. It's too expensive. I'M NOT GONNA buy it. That's just not where they are so you know that's that's a classic case of market break down a lot of people I love the free market but you don't have a free market. When there's a drug out there is keeping you alive and you know stopped taking it and you either get very sick or even die so that's tough Marietta? Thank you very much for the call. I appreciate you checking in with us and Mexican. I did want to get a few minutes on this to an this other topic here <hes> and the <hes> his his the leader of a Boston Globe story a couple of Sundays ago sometime next year as the ranks of retirees swell the the social security system in the United States will pass an ominous tipping point and start the slide into insolvency for the first time in nearly four decades the government program that that provides retirement checks to older Americans will pay out more in benefits in twenty twenty then it takes in that will force the program to dip into a rainy day fund they will be depleted in about fifteen years. <hes> is that right well you know I it's correct but I think the let's. Let's put it in perspective. <hes> it's true that more money will be paid out in benefits than is collected in Feick attacks but there is he referred for do it as a rainy day fund. There is a trust fund. It's got nearly three trillion dollars in it by design. <hes> this was built up after in the early. Eighties is knowing that there would be <hes> surge in in beneficiaries when the baby boomers retired their ten thousand people becoming eligible for social security every day more ten thousand more so <hes> the system was designed to get us <hes> through that <hes> that <hes> a surge in in beneficiaries and and <hes> even though enough <hes> there won't be not enough collected in Feick attacks <hes> there's interest on the bonds what's that are purchased with that excess and out of the trust fund and there's the trust fund itself but if nothing is done at all and when we get to the twenty thirty five the program won't be broke but it won't be able to pay full benefits we'll be able to pay about <hes> nearly eighty percent of benefits. That's not acceptable so we're looking for solutions to get US beyond that and the bill that we support that has I think two hundred ten or eleven cosponsors in the house and there's a companion in the Senate is <hes> <hes> call the Social Security Twenty one hundred act and it's called that because it contains provisions Asians that would extend the solvency for the rest of the century until the year twenty one hundred in addition it improves the <hes> minimum benefit shit by a little bit <hes> and which is important if you're living mainly or entirely on social security it it includes a cost of Living Adjustment Cola that is more accurately <hes> <hes> calculated and slightly larger and <hes> it it <hes> had that bill had a hearing. I've testified several times before the ways and means <hes> social security subcommittee <hes> <hes> the I believe that bill will be reported out to the full House <hes> after Labor Day and and get a vote and then it's going to be <hes> <hes> our job <hes> and others as well to get the Senate to take it up and pass it <hes> and the way this is accomplished all these improvements. It's the extension of of a solvency is by adjusting the CAP on on wages subject to payroll tax right now <hes> it's one hundred and thirty two thousand nine hundred dollars after that no more payroll tax <hes> <hes> it changes a little bit every year but what this bill does is it keeps the cap at what it <hes> current level <hes> and the adjustments made annually but it reinstitute the the payroll tax at four hundred thousand dollars <hes> in wages and and that is the main <hes> vehicle for bringing more revenue into it and I as you know we talked about town hall meetings. I've been at hundreds of town hall meetings and <hes> I you want to relate to talk about the payroll tax cap first of all a lot of people don't even know there's a cap because they've never made enough money <hes> to stop paying payroll payroll tax and the assumption is you pay on your on your wages and <hes> <hes> and if you ask people at town hall meetings and they're they're the ones that care about this. They're going to vote <hes> how many of you <hes> made four hundred thousand dollars or more year nobody you those people are are are not going to town hall meetings. They're playing golf majorite majority of <hes> of citizens and all the polls I've Seen Democrats Republicans Independents <hes> support <hes> <hes> continuing social security reinforcing it improving it extending the solvency even if it means <hes> some <hes> increases and the payroll tax. I wanted to bring in one more caller Jim and berries in waiting. Jimmy got to be quick. We're we're just about out of time here but go ahead Jim. Maybe Jim is giving up on us. <hes> ah Max richman again this is <hes> this this conversation about about especially about <hes> raising the cap on social security. This is the kind of thing what are its chances. I mean folks in the Senate. Particularly Republicans do not like the idea higher taxes as it's going to be a big issue in the Twenty twenty do you think well I hope I've I've written to <hes> the <hes> anchors who are going to be questioning the the candidates today <hes> in Detroit and tomorrow <hes> and I've written to <hes> <hes> all of the candidates Democrats running for the in the primaries <hes> urging them to come out and support this and I think if that happens we'll get we'll get a little bit more <hes> visibility ability on the issue <hes>.

"Where did you Lago my word the summers fast ticking away here he better enjoy it while it's here but <hes> we have a good show lined up for you today? We're GONNA be talking with Richard Sake's the chair of the Board of the Marlboro College in Southern Vermont. We've had a lot of sad news recently from Vermont Small Private Colleges <hes> where three of the closed in recent months and and <hes> others are struggling in Marvez got a plan they're going to merge with the University of Bridgeport will be hearing all about that from the chair of the Board Richard Saudek in in <hes> just a few minutes <hes> we wanted to do also describe a little bit of what's going to be happening later in the program and <hes> Max Richmond one of our returning champions is going to be back on the Dave grab show this morning he is the Executive Director of the National Association to Preserve Social Security and Medicare in again be talking to us about a couple of different issues some prescription drug legislation moving through the Congress that I think Mr Richmond likes says does the A._A._R._p.. And <hes> the gene we're also going to be talking about <hes> some efforts to shore up the long-term Sustainability of Social Security Trust Fund which you you frequently see warnings things in the national media about its go belly up in twenty thirty five or something like that and there are various plans out there to try to ensure. It's a longer term survival so we <HES> WE'RE GONNA be talking with Mr Richmond about that as well and then in the later part of the program while we had there was some reporting last week in the Vermont media about some big rate increase requests for Blue Cross Blue Shield and <hes> m._v._p.. Healthcare they they sell health insurance through the Vermont on Exchange Vermont health connect and they are both looking for large rate increases. <hes> not the first time in recent years they have done that they go in front of the Green Mountain Care Board a <hes> something that sort of model a little bit on the public the public service for now call the Public Utility Commission <hes> which comes to mind of course because my first guest <hes> Richard Sonic is <hes> former chair of the public service board here in Vermont Richard Sonic. You're now wearing a different hat Marlboro college and I WanNa thank you very much for joining joining us this morning and filling us in what the small colleges doing to try to keep itself <hes> Goeman <hes> and tell us <hes> what what is decided to do thanks for having me Dave we watched while all these small colleges got into stressful times with with lower enrollment and a few of them went out of business and it was really tragic we watched as they kind of slowly slowly headed over the cliff and <hes> it was understandable. They'd had about four years five years of of decreasing enrollment tried kept trying to beef it up and they couldn't do it and we were doing the same so what we decided to do instead was to go out in the market in effect send around prospectuses we picked more than fifty actually more than seventy colleges and we <hes> looked for a partner <hes> several colleges were interested and ultimately we decided side on the University of Bridgeport Universe bridgeport is a an urban school but is right on the edge Lakesha implant not lake champlain the sound salary and and <hes> so it's really nice spot now it serves a very diverse population. Their population of students is considered about the most list averse in the northeast including many <hes> early arrivals to the United States and <hes> it's about five thousand students school. They teach mainly professional preparation for all all kinds of professions from healthcare engineering and Sawn Marlboro College is excellent tiny liberal liberal arts college in Marlboro Vermont up the hill from Brattleboro and it delivers very close knit in <hes> intimate <hes> teacher advisor teaches students <hes> relationships and the kids learn a lot <hes> in liberal arts however and they take responsibility for their own <hes> classes so what has happened is that the new president of the University of Bridgeport it came to us and said that she was a big fan of the liberal arts but that they needed more strengthen the liberal arts and she said I would liked to send my students down there in bridgeport up tomorrow so that they can really experience the kind of rarified profile dare and the excellent liberal arts education that Marlboro offers that's really interesting and it it it sounds like it to schools that came out of very different traditions of <hes> you know the practical arts and bridgeport and the and the language in philosophy and and literature and so on in Marlborough <hes> and <hes> obviously any college that is even peaching engineers wants to to have them exposed to some good English courses in history courses and things like that and so is the what's envisioned here that bridgeport students would actually just come up to Marlboro Mara for perhaps a semester or two and take care of their you know their their liberal arts core requirements there yeah yes <hes> possibly possibly to possibly three four semesters at any rate the point is that they get some grounding in Liberal Arts and conversely adversely our students if they want certain training and certain professions can go down to <hes> Uris bridgeport but this is all going to be the under the umbrella of what is called the Marlborough College of Arts and Sciences at bridgeport university city and that's the way the degrees would read and that's the way we're planning to designate it and and <hes> how long was this merger in the works and sort of where are we in the formal process of you know legally merging the two `institutions. It's been in the works works for what we started. The started our search about a year ago and this merger has been in the works for several months. <hes> we've been kind of walking around in Oh trying to define its parameters <unk> whose representation on the board is. How can we assure that our faculty are tenured? Faculty is protected. How can we assure that what we call the Marlboro D._N._A.? Continues <hes> into the future and <hes> so we we we've been discussing this and we have entered a letter of intent which is not a binding contract yet but it sets out some of the parameters that we're going to be looking at. Will there be any kind of <hes> I duNno exchange of cash or does food or is it just <hes> <hes> what are some of the nuts and bolts of merger here well Marlboro has a pretty healthy endowment for a tiny college and we would expect that that endowment <hes> and our resources generally would go to supporting supporting the Marlboro part of this deal and we have specified that and they've accepted that so we will also have a special committee to oversee what goes on in the Marlborough campus and to make sure <unk> entered to represent the Marlboro campus <hes> in the hierarchy of the University of Bridgeport so that we will have a chance is to make sure that these funds are appropriately spent. It's a Amaro is a unique place. I remember during my years as a reporter for the Associated Press here here in Vermont going down there on occasion seemed like every couple of years over something going on our that was newsworthy and and <hes> and got us down there and <hes> AH unique place <hes> very very rural. I mean it was as you said up the hill from Brattleboro along route nine. There is where Marlboro is and <hes> <hes> ah very very. I thought the student body the the young people I spoke to when I was there a lot of them exceptionally bright and sort of self motivated it was it was a very interesting collection of folks there. They have a <hes> a new England town meeting tradition when they wanted to side what should be happening on on the campus in setting policy and so on they actually have a town meeting where faculty staff students each gets a vote of equal weight if I I recall correctly and <hes> and <hes> two things I remember about the Marlboro campus one was peacocks. They had peacocks roaming around down there and then of course in the summertime Marlboro that campus is the is the scene of of a world class music festival classical music. <hes> many performers of anybody follows classic music. You'll you'll have heard of some of the names <hes> who've who've been down in to the Marlboro Music Festival you know in Vermont a lot of folks know about Jaime Laredo radio and <hes> of course I think Rudolph Sirkin was there for a long time and we don't really in it and Yoyo Ma was there for quite a while so very heavy duty assault yeah these are these are world. You know world known will famous classical musicians has come to Vermont in the summertime and hang out at Marlborough and put on brilliant performances down there <hes> so <hes> lots going on at Marlborough College would be among the smaller schools in Vermont. I would say it has <hes> really made markets. It was founded what in the late forties after after World War Two nine hundred forty six okay and the original incoming class was mainly veterans and <hes> if you look at an early picture you will see them lined up in formation unlike current students tend to be kind of climbing around the tree yeah that that's a different flavor than lining up formation is so but I got when I went down to <hes> <hes> down to Marlborough to watch watch. Some of the students are roaming around there and very individualistic play so it it. It's it's terrific. I mean I I I came away in some degree of admiration. I went to big State University Umass amherst and completely different flavor even from that institution and talk talk to me about that that sort of cultural <hes> match up here <hes> everything about it seems like these two Schools University of bridgeport course five thousand students tomorrow's at about a couple of hundred now I think or something like that so <hes> less than a couple of hundred yeah so we're talking about one of these two places being twenty five times larger larger than the others <hes> of course there hundred fifty miles apart roughly <hes> and they <hes> <hes> and of course bridgeport Connecticut one hundred and fifty thousand or so the Population Marlboro Vermont night. I look it up last night. It was a two thousand nine hundred seventy eight <hes> wow. I don't know it's sort of like <hes> what's the old green acres thing back in the day that T._v..

I think you've stated pretty well. I mean they are very very different and in the case of Marlboro. It's the faculty really that's the heart of the school and we have a about a four and a half to one student faculty ratio which I believe is the lowest in the country that people keep track of it and it is known on through for instance the Princeton Review as particularly high-powered school when it comes to student faculty relationships Great Professors Great Teaching and finally a tremendous project at the end of called the plan of concentration in which students really have to get it amounts almost to <hes> between a master's in a p._H._d...

Fed, Fifty Percent And Four Percent discussed on Bloomberg Daybreak: Europe

"And of course the big day for the federal reserve it's gonna be one of the busiest weeks of the year for monetary policy the fed is the only course to announce its decision on interest rates on Wednesday the bank of Japan and then the bank of England have also got decision days joining us in all of this you guys Chris widely chief investment officer at Qana brutally good morning Chris thanks for joining us a blue bag radio is that a surprise factor left for the fed you think they're likely to consider a half point move ways people have got twenty five basis points based in does the zero bound support something more aggressive or not this is interesting at the moment let's define what would be a disappointment if you look at market consensus full cost then twenty five basis points a quarter percent should be what's expected but you can't help but feel that if we call call four percent it would feel like a disappointment and I think that's the route would be interesting to see how the market does respond this week it does seem likely will get a quarter point cuts because of the risks around Hoffa pointing cuts I'm actually kind of just set yourself a new problem if you go with half a point now because then people say is it one and done little that sort of thing as well as about national forget this is a reversal of fed policy in a six month period there is only last December they lost race right said the cut by fifty percent it's implies even of the outlook has changed radically all they did make a mistake before so I think all of that kinda corrals you in the direction of the quarter point cuts and I think there's a bit of a rest that when we get said market site after the rally we've hats mica heh heh well if that says you know let's go back to what was saying and then things and nothing will that's not great either and we've hit some critical technical levels maybe the rally has kind of you know done it stuff for now okay circles point might distract us from the ending season for too long then Chris what about the explanation that the feds gimmick if this week for the right what kind of dominant narrative again we gonna end up with you think after we hear from the fed made weak because the essence is if they can say that the days you know we dated dependent on a live dates was been dreadful because not all what has been dreadful I guess I think it's still the narrative of and of an insurance rate cops and again that's why I think Hoff said point is less likely because it's difficult to maintain that if you're making such a radical change in policy so then I still going to be the narrative I think the reality of the situation is this the political environment is frankly feeding through into the management of monetary policy I think it has to be this react to it the no matter what expression they give us the fat do you think this is actually because of pressure from trump I think it's definitely fed into this and I actually attended the conference last September what Janet Yellen was a keynote speaker and the the single biggest rishi identified was political interference now it's not hi I was gonna say is not explicit is pretty explicit but it is not listed in terms of changing the mandate of the even that's been to things with its implicit but I've seen this many times before the fed does respond to changes in the political environments and that this has happened here so I think it's just ought to fruition a little bit more that long running debates about should we pride talks in price levels that full can we tolerate and over Shusef inflation off the role of under siege I think it's really crystallizes arguments and that's one of the reasons why we protect you like gold now because I think that does well in this sort of environment where negative real rates up back on the agenda will you talk about politicization of central banks which is really fascinating if the price of many around the world including the bank of England we've got now this new kind of crisis cabinet that the prime minister has formed the new prime minister Boris Johnson Hey I'm we have a an interest rate decision and a press conference at four month Kanye expected this week I'm actually by giving it is been the most reluctant it seems a one of the more reluctant to try to ease at on the brakes it risky still choose how much you think that mark Connie's going to discuss that and we have what you think of the UK market right now well you know sacred cows of being let out stores left right and center in this world on the inside one of them is a bank bank independence let's not forget the bank of England was a relatively renewed new recruits yes central bank independence of any happened in the nineties so and of course when you've got a government which is deliberately using the rhetoric of war you know obviously and by all means necessary the wall cabinets systems yes a sister and top in times of war you do extorted things you do what is necessary in the interests of the country and that for that just opens the door bit more since the questioning some of these convention I look I'm not saying that the governments of overnight in the suddenly with Joel central bank independence in the U. K. in fact differentiate paired instability either one of them more instability and uncertainty on that but I think we will probably see the bank of England continue to be pressured I think mark Connie is confined to yesterday's man now not sure we have huge credibility of markets before which is tomorrow is man is that city and what about U. K. assets than in amongst all of this because we haven't come station on that TV a little bit earlier on about how far down the sort of market cap spectrum you have to get you to get domestic exposure not that you've been seeking domestic especially busy reveille domestic exposure so I suppose is you know do you just by foot see one hundred yeah happy without giving the international may couple could you even be tempted into fifty to fifty yeah we yeah we all happy with that see one hundred as you'll I made bats in the UK at the moment of course is the whole point is it's not really a bass on the U. K. it's a pretty global index as was saying this morning you get a whole heap of foreign exchange exposure when the pound goes down it tends to go up as a consequence to get real domestic expect a real small companies exposures really hot if you buy lots of U. K. smaller companies funds as that badge and you look at how the indexes that they track a constructive actually you get a whole heap of mid cap so there of relatively few funds that pretty give you small U. K. specialist for us right now isn't a problem but because they don't particularly seeking about us but we have been thinking about how we would get that in a further down the road if we were able to sort of take a pops a broader approach you just buying the river but mean vestry potential the bounce back attention and in the U. K. Chris thanks very much thanks for joining us this morning Chris Weinke chief investment officer at Qana

"Federal reserve bank of saint louis president james bullard says an insurance cut of twenty five basis points to interest rates would be enough to protect against a sharper than expected slowdown in economic growth bullard spoke exclusively to bloomberg's kathleen hayes and explained why he dissented from the fed's decision to keep interest rates level at the last meeting of the policy-setting federal open market committee for the first time was twenty thirteen descended on fed policy decision it was the first ascent in the era of fed chair jay powell i think a lot of people are wondering why now speech on june thirty said a rate cut might be warranted inflation expectations continue to fall if you know if it looked like the weakness could be even bigger from the trade center than thought but why did you say what you really have to draw a line in the sand and say we can't wait gotta cut twenty five basis points today well inflation's running below target which is surprising given that the economy has surprised the upside over the last two years really growth has been higher than most people had expected labor markets have been very strong unemployment at a fifty year low and still we're looking at inflation running below target by preferred measure inflation expectations deteriorating growth still okay looking backward but looking forward looks like a slowdown with some downside risk you've got an inverted yield curve seemed to me like this is a good chance to make us insurance rate cut and try to recenter inflation and inflation expectations back at the two percent

U.S. lays blame squarely on Iran for oil tanker attacks

"Martin. The US says, Iran is responsible for an attack on to commercial oil tankers in the Middle East here. Secretary of state state. Mike Pompeo speaking yesterday this assessment is based on intelligence. The weapons used the level of expertise needed to execute the operation recent similar rating attacks on shipping and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication US central command released video last night that they say shows Iranian Revolutionary Guard patrol boat removing an unexploded limpet mine from one of the two tankers. They say the Iranians were trying to remove evidence. Let's bring in Admiral William j fell, and now he is a former commander of US Centcom in which he oversaw all US military operations in the Middle East, Admiral, thank you so much for being with us. My pleasure. Good morning, Rachel. Do you believe this video provides absolute evidence that Iran was behind these attacks? It's very convincing to me as secretary Pumpido said, there's a quite a bit of circumstantial evidence, but this video pretty much nails it. How do we know this is in an Islamic revolutionary guard patrol boat? I believe. There's little doubt. That's, that's what it is the US vessel in vicinity. One of our stories saw numerous IRA juicy votes around each of the tankers that was attacked. I think the only question of seeing some speculation that this may be some kind of an independent action. I doubt that sincerely ethic. This was something that was premeditated. And it's a an escalatory step in a in a road too much aware, but certainly not hit at anywhere in the right direction. I mean we've seen this happen before, now four tankers were attacked last month in the same place in the Gulf of Oman, which is just off the coast of, of Iran and the US also blamed those attacks on the Iranian regime. Why is this happening? I believe it's probably Iran, trying to trying to strike back there in a lot of pressure right now. The sanctions that the US is imposed the longstanding robbery, and it's been fought actively with proxies, in Yemen, that involves both Iran and Saudi Arabia. So when this first incident occurred over in jar last month, very interesting. The use of these women minds as they're called that are attached to the whole ship. That's not something that's going to be an everyday item for. Some kind of a startup organizations to somebody that actually is fairly sophisticated. They know what they're doing. And then this event yesterday. Significant esscalation and an arise and sophistication these ships were both underway. I would expect I haven't seen definitively, but expect it came from different ports, and, and they were hit pretty much at the same time. And it appears obviously with this one case, it was a mind there's a report from one of the ships that they're actually some kind of projectiles fired at them, whether these are small missiles, or or guns to be determined, but that oughta be we'll figure this out when they get a look at the ships and see what the damages and see what the wholesale like this is, you know, why are they doing this probably to try to do something to push back in, in the best case one would hope that maybe this will spur some kind of negotiation sometimes discussion. But then rate the immediate effect is probably going to be as we saw yesterday, jumping oil prices and probably insurance rates and anxiety levels because of the volume of petroleum products. That come out of the Gulf, right? Third of the world's supply. So I want to ask you about the public messaging around this, the standoff Iran denies all of it. Iran's u n mission released a statement saying, and I'm quoting here at the US and its regional allies must stop warmongering statement, also calls, the US accusations part of quote, another Arana phobic campaign. Do you think secretary Pompeii peyot by going out holding a press conference publicly accusing Iran, is that the right? Is that the right response? Or should this be happening in more back ten away? It's been so blatantly obvious both on the actions that were that were perpetrated. And the fact that the, the evidence is, is pretty overwhelming that I don't think there's much to be gained in this case by just trying to keep it under the table. And the other reality today is there's so much near instantaneous coverage by the media. In this case, you had video I think it is very interesting, though, that both incidents the one last month, and then this one, one of the very first pieces of information that came out video came from sources so you another question let me have this happen. So I think that directly into question, I don't think there's much to be gained by keeping this quiet. But maybe this'll spur some, some serious discussion I do and ask you. Lastly in just a couple of seconds. The UN secretary general said he's concerned, over a military escalation now. The EU is urging maximum restraint international allies. Clearly, feel this could be a tipping point. Do you know I'm not I don't think it's a tipping point. But it's a it's dangerous because when you start using things that explode and and blow up there's always the danger of miscalculation, some kind of steak and and again when things start flying through the air, it's not good. So this is this is not a good trend and need be very, very careful and take some serious action to try to reverse Admiral William Fallon. Former head of you Centcom. Thank you for

A Different Kind of Derby

A Different Kind of Derby

"A different kind of derby to tell you about it's the Mongolian derby. Yes, we said Mongolian derby, it takes place in you. Guessed it Mongolia between Russia and China. So you might be asking where is there? Racetrack in Mongolia. Well, you're not approaching this right? This Turbie is not run at a track. The track is the wild landscape of the country. The Mongolian derby is a six hundred twenty mile endurance race a thousand kilometers. It's designed to recreate the pony express mail system set up by the Mongolian ruler Genghis Khan in the thirteenth century this derby takes anywhere between six and ten days to finish this coming. August will be the tenth anniversary of the Mongolian derby. It was started in two thousand nine by a British based company, but we want to talk about the two thousand thirteen edition of the race the fifth annual event just a few weeks before a nineteen year old girl named Lara. Prior. Palmer was cruising the internet from her home in the United Kingdom and came across the Mongolian derby with zero training and some but not enough money to pay even the entry Faye? Miss. Prior Palmer hit the apply button and wallah entered the race most competitors trained for years in order to endure the fatigue and hunger and horsemanship necessary to get through the race. What happened after that internet? Search is a testament to the human spirit a true tale miss. Prior Palmer, spins in the new book rough magic which comes out right about now. And we're very pleased to have Lara. Prior Palmer with us to discuss her story here on in the gate. You didn't even have the money for the entry fee? So what happened when you told your parents that you were doing this? Definitely it didn't tell them together. I think my mom is li- enticed by horse's name Massa where they are in the world and was taken with the rebound to Susan ally. Was I think my my phone is difficult gauge, he's not doesn't angle himself into reality in the same race that he said it was very dangerous and said it was too opportunistic to do it at the last minute as I was going to and sort Instead of. of just didn't imagine that was the way I should be spending my summer, I think he had ideas probably more related to have imagined his children should be funding. Nessim I'm not even going to go there. What was your goal going in to win to have a spiritual experience to find yourself? Definitely doesn't have go. I was there wins co teenager who was really excited raise money for charities. I thought it was great is in the UK. Lots of people do rap marathon running. And I thought the mobile w was quite unusual. And it would be good thing to raise the greenhouse sports who do fantastic through sports in London with kids from dysfunction communities say that was definitely a goal. And then the other goal is just to finish the race. I guess the pot for doing it and guessing the experience at least for one day before jokes out if I did because no on my age or under the twenty three I think could yet finish the race. You will get to the human suffering in a second. But before we go any further, I think we need to clarify a couple of things first of all it's not one horse that takes you through this race. It's around twenty five horses. How do the horses that you're not writing travel with you through the race? Great question. Yes. It's an insurance rates to humans. Not voices say in Mongolia. There is not a lot of forces than many families on the set have varying amounts of numbers of forces their status symbol, as they are in many, many roads. And so in the summer, the organizes travel mongo Leah us king families if they'd like to act as a horse station for the race and the families will then get together thirty five before she forces. And there's a stations a place that sort of twenty five mile into intervals say, he writes, it three or four hours between station, and he stopped and you given your tied horse and wait for its heart rate to come level. And then you look at the line of twenty horses on it depending on how many runaway in the storm the night before maybe three and then he decided you're an expert. Cindy right on. So you don't even know these horses until you literally hop aboard. And. Get going exactly because even in polo, for example, where a number of horses are on a team with a competitor their property of the competitor. He knows all those horses or she knows all those horses. This is not that. Oh my gosh. How different are Mongolian horses from horses. We're used to seeing here in the west and not just thoroughbreds. I mean. Hard to say casino, lots of British horses a vaguely similar to mongering recipients by EastWest vied, really. But for example, I've ridden some some small Arab pennies in a friend in the states like she had some Icelandic ponies, which not dissimilar from Mongolian pennies, and that they have a large head size, and they've quite stocky and actually genetically qualifies forces, even though they sort of with a height that pony. Tony's it'd be under fourteen two and the way they differed the rave going into the Ray rarely Rijn the ones that I raised. You can't get together one thousand five hundred horses for grace and make sure they will probably train lots of the Masami wild. And they'll have been backed often didn't quite understand steering, which is lucky. He's quite often describe a straight line and a buck Christ law. When he got on them co box and open the ones that bucks that hard. The best bolt is and they would get Alex for good. I'll steam so yet to take that risk. So you're traveling like six hundred miles with horses that are bucking on you. They thought behold way back in the beginning. Maybe. More failing cheeky some of them. I mean within Mongolia, the horses a difference. Some families had Jerry very nice donkeys should expect type horses out of brilliant racing champions who were like woman is no horses. They relied lions do you? Try to talk to them chirp to them. Calm them down. Yeah, you can too. That's another thing saying among Golian language said different Brad for world. In different words, instead of giddy up is more like sound, and Yeah. you You can can talk talk to to them. them as much like I signed on credit lot. I told them, but my frustration Kreidler your any if you writing Elaine, some people some people do their your any companion. You've got to make friends of no matter what the athletic ability is speaking of the other people. I mean, I imagine that most of the other competitors kind of know who each other is somewhat. Then you show up for a fischel testing out of practically nowhere. What was that? Like, it was very global many of the right is not that. And lots of people that it was there was a sense of people trying to make partnerships because we were afraid to write a load, and I never really got round to doing this electrical doing enough of a serious bond with anyone they would welcome any on the testing days with two days or something. It was tens by slightly ignored that I was let high on the excitement of this new group of people fresh out of school with less. Not a sheltered life cried say, particularly and I was just biggest take cited by the whole gyn to natures how terrified I was. Did you get any vibe that they were saying away tea with teenage girl? What is she doing here? It wasn't quite like that. Because I was some other young competitors Severo friendly with each other. There was a sense of surprise that. I wasn't so prepared for the race and as desire from some older people to help me out of the show how many competitors are there in this race varies some years. This about fifty and other years my either eight thirty two so we're talking about thirteen fourteen hours of riding day. Right. I mean, what were the conditions line conditions is in the weather. The weather was very entertaining. We had storms, but it by seat raves followed by floods where you can't cross the land 'cause it's a trap. So you weren't comfortable, and you probably had a change of claves. If you went very good at packing like me. And you're probably sue because there's no way of training for this race. There is nice setup. Like in the any. Russia. How much you've written red semi truck or train polo. Tony's no one's really done this before teen hours a day. And is title is suck on the body. And you get off

Now on the other hand, we're also going to spend money because of it because insurance rates will go up. Auto insurance rates will go up like they have in the states where it's been legalized, you know, the idea that if we're not going to benefit from it. And we're going to have be spending more money than what's the point. And if it's going to be legalized, and you are someone who would like to partake.

Xactly Corporation - Sales Performance Management

"Guests. I'm excited to get on today called Chris Cabrera, and he's the CEO of exactly and also the author of game the plan and exactly make south performance management software on a used by some of the biggest brands in the world, so Salesforce Hyatt hotels and Louis Vuitton. And that's just a couple of the top of my head. But hey, and a company have a vision to help companies unleash human potential. So they can maximize company performance with hint attack. Maybe his well so book elope and hold on tight. So I can be MIO as all the way to California. So we can speak with Chris Cabrera the CEO. Of exactly who's going to tell us all about that vision. And how they're using technology. A massive warm. Welcome to the show. Can you tell the listeners a little bit who you are? And what you do. So happy to be here. My name is Chris Cabrera, and I'm the founder and CEO of a company called exactly corporation and exactly is in the sales performance management space in our roots really came from the compensation management, you know, paying paying sales people their commissions exactly is famous for making south performance management SPN to pay out. She used by some Lassie Mesic brands such as Salesforce, high hotels and Louis Vitton just to name, but a few. But can you just help? Everyone listening on that same page and tell them a little bit more about exactly what exactly is also what makes you guys unique. Yeah. Know, the nice thing about exactly is. There's probably not a company in the world there on the planet that doesn't need our stuff because every company sells something it could be a service could be a widget. Somewhere in the organization are people who are motivated to do things. And those things could be make more phone calls. So more things, you know, provide better services show up to work on time. And all those motivational things companies are finding you know that the human nature is if you dangle a carrot and give some some incentives to do those things you can drive better performance from your employee base. And so what we do is. We just go into every type of company across you know, you mentioned some of them, but we've got companies that are in just about every vertical in the world. And we and we help them identify people in the organization that they want to incentivize to do things better or differently or quicker, or you know, there's a plethora of ways that people want to incent people and our software allows for that to happen until our customers, you know, drive higher productivity out of their sales teams. We've got numbers that show, you know, four. Eighty percent more productive than than people that don't use these types of systems higher profit margins things and things like that that organizations have to decently use variable compensation and incentives to help drive growth across their sales teams book on new wave of businesses recognizing the value of rolling out incentive compensation beyond sales and intern. They see a powerful role that incentive compensation compla- to actually increase productivity revenue and also the coach of engagement, but can you share the you'll unique point if you and where the industry is heading in your opinion. How you genuinely believe there's been a huge missed opportunity for incentives now only the value that they provide to employees, but also how that can be applied to shape behaviors and motivations and how that can actually impact a company's bottom line. I think everyone knows the classic, you know, pay commissions to sales people and their coin operated, and you know, and so And you. so you find almost every company is paying thirty percent of the population. You know, roughly, you know, there's people that are on quotas and sell stuff, and they're paying them some type of compensation, but I think more and more as you said is companies are realizing how competitive the market is. And how how much incentives can help drive better performance across every type of employees. We're seeing companies that are paying instead of thirty percent of their population. They're paying one hundred percent of their population. Now, those other seventy percent might be getting some type of an MBA or bonus am, I it's not a straight commission. It's not necessarily sell this widget. And you get two percent or five percent. But the the beautiful thing about our software like ours is that you can incentivize any type of behavior as I said, you know, you could be incentivizing the receptionist at the front desk to show up on time and dress appropriately and smile when they greet the people coming in and those could be you know, NBA does the. Each quarter. The manager sits down and says. Yeah, we think you did this about eighty percents. You're gonna get eighty percent of this of this bonus. We see companies like trucking companies that are delivering perishable goods. They're literally incentivizing truck drivers to deliver the load within a certain window. If they arrived too early that likely means they were speeding, and they get tickets and insurance rates go up if they're too late. Well, obviously, the perishables Paris. And and that's a bad thing. We work with governments that are paying, you know, postal service workers that are not even employees of their of the government. They're just hanging shingle somewhere. You know, in remote locations and saying we accept, you know, we sell stamps, and we accept mail well to the government that that looks like a sales person. Right. But it's not at all what you typically think of. I think you mentioned, you know, high earlier, you know, every wedding planner thousands of wedding planners throughout the world that high if you walk into one of them and talk. Talk to them about setting up your wedding, every choice that you make from the wedding cake to the venue to the orders. Those people are being incentivized to to provide. You the best options and options that will make sure you have a great event. So so you're absolutely right compensation is changing dramatically in the in the world today in companies that are figuring it out or bracing it beyond just sales people. So they're automating sales people, and then they're spreading throughout the rest of their company. And what we see is that companies that do that perform much higher rates and have higher profitability

So the moment I said on Facebook that I got engaged all of a sudden my ads were full of things for like honeymoon locations and wedding venues, and then we. We got married and I keep getting stuff about babies. Facebook wants us to have a baby. And I. Cannot help. But wonder what kind of information this could lead to you know, right? If you get flags being a suicide risk by Facebook. How are they going to use that information going forward? It could lead to higher insurance rates or something like that. Which is another reason why it's important that Facebook is able to you know, problem that Facebook has a monopoly on all your private data. It's still less problematic than had a lot of smaller companies known that data like that. You are decided it'll be. At least now because otherwise everybody there'd be lots of companies be able to save tell that dated that you're Seuss house here insurance companies. They're charging higher rates, whereas Facebook won't necessarily it. Just one outlive with it, which is less bad. Yeah. I don't know. It worries me because I mean Facebook worries me in general and all the companies like Facebook whose business model basically depends on collecting much info about you as possible and packaging it up and selling it to whoever wants it for whatever reason. And although although there's a whole there's the whole what's it called the medical regulation? Hip. Yes. Thank you where where where medical issues and medical records are considered very private and very non sharable despite all the time. They get inadvertently shared. Yeah. What what what will it lead to when that information? Also, maybe includes whether or not you've had or express these sorts of dark thoughts or have been recognized as such from from Facebook. So this this this I think is worth I think this is worth keeping an eye on. And of course, this is not saying that we take the subject of suicide or depression or dark thoughts, very lightly. It's something I know folks in this room of dealt with and. Just to just to mention it here if you are having such thoughts, the US national suicide prevention hotline does incredible work, and you can reach them anytime day or night at eight hundred two seven three eight five five that's.

The $24 trillion case for a strong, global carbon tax

"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. So how much is climate change costing you? I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul Hefner. This is climate cast. We hear about the cost of climate change solutions. But what about the cost and risk of doing nothing every year the cost of climate inertia rises, but it's not a steady curve. It's more like the trajectory of a rocket. Another five years of delay, a university of Minnesota policy brief says that's a striking twenty four trillion dollar loss in consumption. That's the equivalent of a worldwide recession. Bob litter men helped write that brief he's the chairman of the risk committee an advisory panel at kep owes capital. I asked him how we are already paying for climate change, lots of different kinds of impacts. And it certainly true. That in many cases insurance rates are going to be going up. There's going to be cost many of which are born by the government, which then is passed onto tax payers. So in recent years, you've seen sometimes hundreds of billions of dollars in damages that. Can be attributed to climate change. Bob, you write about inaction, but what sort of action can slow atmospheric warming to that one point five or two degrees celsius goal where it makes the most difference if we were to put on a strong carbon tax globally today. We could probably keep warming well below two degrees. But if we wait until twenty thirty then we're above two degrees c and that may not seem like a lot. But given where we are today in what we're already seeing for the people who are living say forty fifty years in the future when we will hit those peak temperatures, another three tenths of a degree c could mean a major difference in their world, you mentioned a carbon tax. Let's let's boil it down to the simplest aspects for those who haven't heard of it. What is it? And why do you think it would work to fight climate change, the basic ideas to create the appropriate incentives to reduce emissions right now. There are plenty of taxes. That actually incentivize both the consumption and production of fossil fuels. We've gotta change that we've got to create an appropriate incentive to reduce emissions. The simplest ways just to create a tax at the source of the fossil fuel proportional to the amount of emissions that would be created. But once you impose it there. The users of that fossil fuel will end up paying appropriately for the amount of pollution that they're creating Bob what's the most important things, you think people who are connected to and concerned about climate change should think about when it comes to the cost of inaction what they should think about is what it means for, you know, their grandchildren. I think about that all the time. Sadly, we've already gone so far down this road that the world that they will live in will not be the same world that we live in. There will be massive changes to ecosystems to human well-being to health. So that's what they should be thinking about Bob litter men, chairman of the risk committee and founding partner of kept host capital. Thanks for sharing your economic insight today. Go my pleasure. Thank you. My name's Elizabeth Arnold. And I'm a second year science technology and environmental policy master's student at the Humphrey school of public affairs. And I'm studying energy policy. And I'm part of a group from the university of Minnesota that's going to Puerto Rico for an interdisciplinary trip doing research and collaborating with two professors from Puerto Rico and Puerto Rican communities. We're focused on the energy transition. I'm from the Humphrey school of public affairs. So I'm really really interested in the policy piece, how can federal policy territorial policy and local policies impact. These changes that need to happen to really provide the energy that Puerto Rico needs to be sustainable going forward. People got power back after eleven months of being in the dark, which is the longest blackout in US history. So we want to make sure that doesn't happen. Not just in Puerto Rico, Puerto Rico is really going to benefit the rest of the world. In terms of being an example of how things can be done in a more resilient sustainable way. They really have an opportunity to get to one hundred percent renewable by twenty fifty. This is the work that communities all over the world needs to be doing. And so there's a lot that we can learn from Puerto Rico. That's climate cast. I'm MPR chief meteorologist, Paul Hutton her.
