"So I think the impact on financial markets will be less than it will be in other parts of the economy. And I think one thing to keep in mind with generative AI is it does produce written words, it produces images, it produces things that we as humans can immediately relate to. In fact, it's almost like magic, right? Write a speech on X, and you'll write back a pretty good speech. Write a paper on Y. I mean, it's remarkable how it's able to create freeform text that seems logical and coherent. Accurate is another question sometimes, but it's really transformational as compared to predecessor forms of machine learning, which produced zeros and ones, much more inscrutable. Now, machine learning has been used by the market maker community for years. It's part of how we've been able to bring down bid -ask spreads and increase liquidity is through machine learning. We can better understand how to price risk and how to manage risk, and those techniques are widely used across Wall Street today. From my perspective, the big impact of generative AI is going to be call centers, translation work, producing content for Hollywood. I mean, the ability to render, I've told this story before, a friend of mine showed me an image of a future Star Trek clip or movie, which has yet to be created, and there's James Kirk, and there is Dr. Spock, and they look perfect, except they don't exist. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you very much. We're trying to get into businesses where the market to perceive the value or impact. That's where we want to put our capital. We want to put our capital on what's going to be important in the future. Now, there are dimensions of the AI craze that we think are really interesting. For example, how Microsoft is using AI to empower its suite of software, and how Microsoft is driving its users towards the cloud is a really interesting study in corporate strategy. I mean, I got to tell you, they're just crushing it. And by creating a product suite that pushes you towards their cloud environment, they really marry you to Microsoft holistically in a very different way than you've been married to Microsoft in the last 10 or 15 years. So we think about these second -order effects that these technologies have. We think about a first -order effect over something because people lose a bunch of weight. Second -order effect is they drink less alcohol. So you want to make sure you don't own as much of the alcohol oriented companies around the world. It's the second -order effects we spend a lot of time at thinking in our investment management. We all know what's happening first -order. What's going to happen second -order? How do we capitalize on that? Another question quickly on the future of Citadel Securities. You about a year and a half ago, took an investment from Paradigm and Sequoia. What does that mean in terms of the direction of travel? What have you learned from them in terms of technology? Does this signal an IPO anytime soon? Well, so I think we need to ask you again, sir, do we want public companies in America? That's a bit of a question mark these days. In fact, there's roughly 1 ,200 plus unicorns Companies valued at over a billion dollars that are not public. What is it that we have done to destroy the value proposition of being public in America? And by the way, that's 1 ,200 companies that would have written tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or millions of retirement stories. Right? Think about all the people that we've met in our lives that have a story of, do you know, my grandmother bought IBM when it first went public and she owned it till the day she died. A value of $10 million. Right? We all know these stories of people who have been able to take advantage of the enormous wealth creation of American entrepreneurs. And these companies staying private for longer is depriving American retail investors of that opportunity. So that's number one. Number two, Sequoia has been a fantastic partner in the business. They are, they are absolutely great in the boardroom. They keep my management team focused on the right issues, the right metrics. They really help to be a voice of both passion around growth and passion already in business. And of course they They do have the expertise as to what it takes to run a successful public company and they bring that to the table each and every day. So they've been a great partner to work with. I really value the relationship that we have with Sequoia. Does this all signal and intent for you, particularly at the hedge fund firm, to be investing more in the private markets? So there's no doubt that market forces today are pushing one to think more and more about investing in private markets. There's no doubt. As the SEC continues to pursue strategies that shrink the relative size of the public markets, you need to think about what's your growth equity strategy? What's your private credit strategy? What's your private equity strategy? This is where the SEC is ironically pushing the business, is away from public markets. And unfortunately that pushes more and more capital appreciation opportunities outside of the hands of American retail investors. So before I let you go, we have about 10 minutes left here. We talked about the future of Citadel. We've talked about the future of the economy.
"james kirk" Discussed on Overthrowing Education
"We could go on. But right now, I think it's time to play the 5 minute game show. It's time for the 5 minute game show. Oh, okay. You ready? Yeah, I'm ready. Okay, so you, I know, love gymnastics. And clearly connect with Star Trek. Yes. And our very passionate about education. So this game show is called balance beam me up, Scotty. Okay. Okay, so this particular kind of game is like this that or the other. So I'm going to read you a quote. Okay. And you have to tell me if it came from Star Trek. If it came from a gymnast, or if it came from an educational genius, I don't know how to say it. And after that, you can get an extra 5 or ten completely meaningless points if you can tell me who actually said it. Okay? It's all meaningless. But you are playing for an overthrowing education mug. Oh, okay. All right, stakes are high. Okay, here's the first one. Things are only impossible until they are not. Star Trek gymnast education. I know it's starting to look. You're right. It is Star Trek. You remember he said it, which one? It's either Spock or oh, it could be Picard. It's because it was, okay. So don't say Spock. It was a good job. Okay. We can push ourselves further. We always have more to give. I don't think it's from star trek. Gosh, I'll just tell you. Okay, go. It was Simone Biles. Oh, was it? Okay. For anybody who hasn't been around the last few years. Yes. Well, I've seen her, but I have not read her if she's written a book. I have not read it. Well, no, these are just quotes. Okay. Okay. The next one. The only person you're truly competing against is yourself. I think it's Star Trek. It is Star Trek. You're right. I'm trying to think who it is. Yeah, I'm going to say James Kirk. No, that was actually Picard as well. It was oh, okay. I did like next generation. I must have met, yep. Okay. All right. To find out what one is fitted to do and to secure an opportunity to do it is the key to happiness. It's not a gymnastic. So don't hear of a lot about happiness from gymnasts, unfortunately. That's Spock. No, it's actually John Dewey. My favorite early educators. Okay, yeah, there's a lot of John Dewey coats. I must have been, yep. Yeah. One of my favorites, yeah. So by the way, just a similar quote was from Mary Lou Retton. She says, each of us have fire in our hearts for something, it's our goal in life to find it and keep it lit. That's like version of it, which is nice. Good for her. Do you like that? Okay. I'm not sure I'm getting the mug, but that's okay. Oh, everybody gets a mug. Everybody's a winner on. We're drawing education as long as we're continuing to overthrow education. Okay, here's the next one.
"james kirk" Discussed on John Mark Comer Teachings
"Welcome to the John Mark Homer teachings podcast by practicing the way. This teaching was originally given at Bridgetown church in Portland, Oregon. As a part of the preaching the gospel series. There is a book on racial justice that you are not likely to find on any New York Times Best Seller list, but it is hands down one of my all time favorites. It's called hubie come home by Jay Raqqa from New Zealand, who is both a follower of Jesus and a Maori writer. In it, he tells the tragic complex and at the same time beautiful story of the interplay between the indigenous people of ataro, or as we would say, New Zealand, the missionary movement of the 19th and 20th centuries, and the multi generational trauma of colonialism. He opens with a story from a few years before the infamous James Kirk, who was most definitely not a follower of Jesus. Did I say Kirk cook? See, Star Trek right in there. Rusty, goodness, but you see that the nod there in Star Trek, right? Before he discovered New Zealand in 1769, there was a famous Maori tribal prophet or oracle who had a vision of a strange people with white skin coming on large ships. It was so vivid that he went around from tribe to tribe in the north and the south islands and to act out the coming Europeans. He made a basket and he put it on his head to mimic a hat. He cut apart a cloak and he put it around his legs to mimic Pence. He fastened a rock to the end of a stick and put it in his mouth to mimic a pipe and he brought this prophecy to the tribes, quote the name of their God will be Tom Roker to forgive me if you're a kiwi. Son who was killed. A good God, however, the people will still be oppressed. James cook made landfall and then left, but 48 years later, the first missionary arrived in New Zealand. But people had been waiting for decades to hear the message about this new good God who was the son who was killed. And the tribal chiefs, therefore, gathered a large crowd on the beach to hear it in person and on Christmas Day, 1814, the first missionary stood up on that soil to preach the gospel of Jesus, the son who was killed. The gospel alone set off a cascade effect in Maori culture. They renamed that beach, the gateway for the good news in the indigenous language. The missionaries first translated the gospel of Luke and then later the New Testament as a whole into the Maori language, the first indigenous translation in the southern hemisphere, and the gospel of Luke spread like wildfire throughout the tribes. Prior to the gospel, they were a warring culture built around this idea of blood vengeance you kill one of us, we kill one of you, tit for tat back and forth century after century with no idea when the next rating party would

"In middle renite. 'cause gina carano comparing your appeal conservatives being oppressed like comparison to the holocaust. It's really not. It's it's kind of a false equivalency a little bit insisted madly exterminated or or you. Are you be burdened ovens and were not aware of this jerk that nobody wants to talk to you anymore right. That's the thing. yeah like. I said i'm not jewish. Far be it for me to judge the the jewish experience. But i'm pretty sure being a jewish communist in nineteen fifty five was worse. Your say so. I'm pretty sure it was harder. But whatever's worst. We could always bring jewish consultant. Dj dick to gesture for our jewish consultant. Earth-orbiting i was i was. I was a young upstart of a kid. And i was like please do not. I mean i'm not gonna sit here and try and tell you that anti-semitism does not exist. Because does try and tell cellular. There's not anti jewish sentiment because there is but It's a heck of a lot harder to arrest somebody for simply being jewish nineteen ninety-seven to rest buddy for being on this nineteen fifty five a little bit loop. It just seems a little oblivious. I probably should have let that go. I probably shouldn't have brought it up argument with her and she did at the end of it. Say i was probably right. Her grandparents probably fought harder site but being communist in being called a communism's accurate. Because this this happened all over. Like especially in hollywood where you had Actors being accused of being communists that would get them blacklisted and blackballed for the industry. Ain't never worked again right. Like people like james kirk who were blacklisted and died of the thirty nine all right just for being called communist the truth all you need was the accusation. All you need enough to destroy your career again. Being communist is perfectly legal right. It approved a legal thing to be. You can't conspire to overthrow governments. But you are allowed to be a communist the same way. I don't care how many anti-semites there are out there. Screw you guys. Being jewish is perfectly legal skill. Screw you guys. i'm going home. You are allowed to live in this country and be jewish. You're allowed to live in this country and be muslim. You're allowed to believe this country into hindu. I don't care what the biggest you're allowed to do it. Which is why. Joe mccarthy is a piece of shit so to say that the fifties were not all leave it to beaver. Dick van dyke show. They were not they were not and i thought that was a big part of it too. I think a lot of people wanted the hope that maybe. If i do everything that i'm supposed to do study hard and be smart. Even i can win sixty thousand dollars right four thousand dollars in like nineteen fifty five. It's like a hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Now it's serious about buddy back then even the seriously large amount of money so i think they wanted that hope and i think everybody just got outraged about it and it. Just it's just another instance in my opinion of congress wasting its time in the nineteen fifties. Because you know you talk about the red stereo. You wants you know. God god forbid normal citizens get the same get the same healthcare that the people who work for the government gets right. What a wacky idea. What a wacky idea. Yeah i always thought it was weird for women. Go go figure. Can you imagine you cut through peres. Equal pay for doing this about a work. Same cut a word no crazy right crazy this mansion these upstarts how dare they made it works but yeah for me it was like why is congress wasting their time on friggin game shows. You know they're wasting their time on actors who might possibly be communists and now they're wasting their time on game shows. Well like i said you know we also got the whole of the edison with dr frederick. Were them in that whole business so they were wasting their time with that too back in the day exactly exactly so that they had to create the comics code authority. Bless you really be gains which duterte so many come stories that god bless you william gains right see comics that is why tales from the crypt creepy and mad magazine. Were magazines not thomas. And that's how he got around that he was a genius and you know we had like one hundred years old. This year is he. Yeah those sergio's getting up. There i wouldn't say jackie's like ninety nine or something that i just saw something on and i was like. Oh my god. I destroyed with. Sergio goes because of a huge sergio fan. Don't even don't even start saying talking about. Yeah we'll be seriously upset that happens. Yeah al jaffee just turned one hundred. Wow nice march. Al japanese one hundred years old congrats jaffe so seriously think of snapping answer to a stupid question or baby. A folded to attack against the mad fold is where the. Yeah the man folding going to ruin your copy of mad magazine. The only reason the only reason to ruin it. Yeah and even even then. I wouldn't do it. I was like kind of folding so you so you would just you full just enough to figure out what it was trying to do right. I would like i remember. They take a ruler and put it along the lines and then write down the words and see what it was and i kinda folded so it was like it like squad s and then sort of looked interesting. There is no which put it back not like. I didn't read my magazines. So much covers fell off of right. Exactly i did. I was the same way with it. Especially with the star. Wars issue came out.

There have been waiting for this. I'm sure okay. Great lois mcmaster. Usual has written a very successful series of novels about our main protagonist miles poor cokes again. I got it right and close. I was close on that one starting in nineteen eighty three with shards of honor. Which run be compton crook award for. First time novel. She has gone on to win three hugos for her series. In addition to winning the nebula and locus awards. Welcome to our ms buccio. Thank you nice to have you high low as it's ernest you remember ernest high. You know this character is very interesting. he's probably the Probably as far as science fiction the most fragile action hero in scifi novel Where did he. where did you come from. Miles has a whole bunch of sources He has a physical template in a hospital pharmacist. I used to work with back in my pharmacy technician days. That's where i got miles as high four feet nine inches. This fellow's head was level with the top of my shoulder and measured that to the volume discovered that before nine and he had The leg braces in the when he walked in certain physical characteristics he was also one of the most brilliant guys work in in the hospital to work with But miles has more of a An emotional template out of my own relationship with my father one of his besetting characteristics is a really bad case of great men son syndrome. Which i sort of think i share. My dad was a very hard act to follow He was an old caltech man and professor of engineering at ohio state university. And in fact where. I got my taste for science fiction. Miles thinks he should be six foot one But you didn't ever consider making a larger than life action hero. That's been done. You know the the thing is when when you're playing with with the john that's already been worked over is is to try to seek seek the angles. Think the points of view that not everyone has done before you Laws to stay in the wiser mile something else just for a second and just maybe a little unfair but but did you ever consider writing miles. A woman in the beginning No although in the very first version of the warriors apprentice he did have a sister who got written out I've always sort of missed her but there goes my sister question before you know before. The book really really got pissed about chapter five. So for people aren't tremendously familiar with the stories. Her miles becomes an admiral. Could you just do a real brief thing on what miles became before memory. Okay oh jeez. We're asking me to sum up ten bucks here. Basically miles develops dual identity. He he has his identity at home as a as a barrier for which is sort of Military aristocrat home world. Which is tough sledding. When you're four foot nine have brittle bones and don't fit in at all and he develops a second identity as a sort of Cobra agent out in the galaxy at large as admiral naismith sending mercenaries for miles a far more satisfying identity allows him to To us sort of the full range of his abilities and talents and over about a ten year period By the way he gets he gets his home. World sub security organization to fund his mercenary fleet. And they m second cy million out for them. Yeah for them in the back beyond or integrate beyond So she's kind of having his cake and eating it too throughout throughout his twenties As he has this one one identity is the the very active. Admiral naismith and the other is the the rather dull. There's also a little bit of I'm sorry there's also a little bit of a detective inhumane. Some of the stories too I know that you had read homes. And and also lord peter whimsey i believe I want to ask you. What do you think his favorite home story would be. Oh heaven that's an interesting off. The wall question that miles read. I remember seeing with there was one scene where he fell asleep reading a novel and ended up stuck in a fog. So i'm not sure how you asli res but But yes he does read. I was talking about miles at tony. I have been for several days now. As a matter of fact and he said you know that sounds like a lot of james kirk and a lot of james bond in miles absolutely. Yeah creek was never my favorite character. So i draw the line there. Okay.

What do the European election results tell us abou politics?
"We begin at this hour. However, with the results from the EU elections. I know you're saying what do I care about the elections? The EU man. What do I care over there? We're over here. Well, it does have some pretty significant ramifications, not only for foreign policy in the United States, but also it goes to sort of mentality of a lot of folks in the west right now, so called populist, nationalist movement, that has been burgeoning across Europe, and the United States is on the move these elections show, it again, according to the Associated Press Francis president and the leader of Italy's eurosceptic far-right movement jock. For the role of chief powerbroker on the continent on Monday after elections to the European parliament hollowed out the traditional polling middle after four days of balloting that drew to a close Sunday across the European Union's twenty eight countries ended the domination of the main center, right? And center left parties in parliament and established the anti forces on the right and the environmentalists on left as forces to be reckoned with the center, right? And center left had basically agreed on open, immigration and free trade. Those were sort of the basic premises of the centre-right, and central now I think most people still agree on free-trade, although there are folks on the environmentalists left who do not. But I think what's happened here is that people basically on the on the far-right, meaning the nonsense righty, just regular. Right. And the have decided that they are tired of taking orders from people in Brussels people. They did not vote for bureaucrats that are elected. We'll get to decide how they do their business, and they've also decided that they are tired of not being in control of their own borders. When it comes to immigration. One of the things about being a member of the EU. Is that if somebody enters Germany, as an immigrant, they can then move anywhere inside the EU and a lot of folks are getting uptight with this. And I think for some pretty good reasons, voters delivered the highest turnout in twenty years, rejecting mainstream politics in France, Germany, Britain, and Italy, the results could make the business of governing Europe, even trickier, leaving the parliament deadlock issues to come including immigration, a major trade agreement with the United States, global warming regulation of the tech industry. And of course, Brexit, there's been a lot of talk about the EU regulating, top-down environmentalism the far left is picked up points there. But so has the far right. Which, basically says no, we're done with this. We're not going to cram down on ourselves, all sorts of environmental regulations that make our lives worse, while the chief polluters on planet earth are outside of Europe. The outcome of the election is already setting off power struggles in France. President Emmanuel Macron's party narrowly lost the French far-right led by marine Le Pen, Macron's party was poised to secure twenty one seats to twenty two for men's national rally. Spent Monday busily amassing allies ahead of a summit Tuesday in Brussels, hoping to build a durable coalition. Now it's worthwhile. Noting here. What was originally designed to do? The EU was originally designed for a couple of purposes. The European Commonwealth, it was designed number one to have an integrated market, which most people still agree with. But number two, it was designed effectively to keep Germany down to integrate Europe for future security threats end to integrate Europe against the threat to the east, namely, the Soviet Union. Well, Soviet Union no longer exists. And a lot of countries are saying no, the chief threat right now is not coming from any external power, the chief threat right now is coming from those bureaucrats in Brussels, who wants to run our lives in Italy. That is how beanies right-wing party won a third of the country's vote. They're poised to become the biggest parties in European parliament with twenty eight seats in the seven hundred fifty one legislature by midday Salvini had already spoken to lapenne Hungary's, hardline, anti-immigrant, Prime Minister, Viktor, Orban, and Brexit leader. Nigel Farraj and was promising to singlehandedly bring together, an international group of nationalists. The centre-right European People's Party, the central of socialists and Democrats dominated parliament, but they are getting creamed. They're getting creamed in these polls writing what they called Europe's. Green wave environmentalist parties taking action on climate change, did make strong gains, particularly in Germany, where you would figure a lot of Angela Merkel's voters have been moving to the left, basically everything is becoming polarized has gone can fin is one of the leading candidates from parties in the future majority of European parliament goes thrust without question there isn't one without us in Germany, Anglo, Merckel, centre-right movement, also lost ground. A subdued EP candidate emend for Weber said, we're facing shrinking center from now on those who want to have a strong European Union. Have to join forces. Real power. In Europe remains in the hands of the twenty eight Member States parliaments influences grown they've helped improve air flight safety, and you're up they've cut down on plastics use. They've basically regulated enormous number of different industries inside of Europe. And a lot of nations are saying, I don't want Anglo-American deciding for Britain. What exactly are immigration policy ought to be Anglo Merckel is very upset about all of this, obviously, she says dark forces at play here. But the reality is that she helped break apart that centre-right centre-left coalition that has been governing European politics for very long time. Germany has been hesitant to report the rise in crime levels. Thanks to increased migration in Germany, but those increased tram levels have been taking place. The same has been true of anti-semitism in Europe, folks on the left wished to pretend that anti-semitism in Europe is purely in effect of the far right? Neo Nazi parties, which are indubitably and have always been disgusting and horrify, but it is important to note that when it comes to anti-semitism across Europe is from attic rise is in large part due to the increase in the number of Muslim refugees being taken from the Middle East. Now they're the only country that has refused to join your reporting on this, basically, as Germany. So Germany keeps saying that all of the violence in Germany directed against Jews is being directed by the far right? However, it is important to note that a lot of the statistics that they cite do not include a huge majority of the incidents as politically motivated. So, for example, there's a research and information center for anti-semitism report that came out last year, and it's that there is an increase in anti semitic offenses in two thousand eighteen over a thousand in Berlin alone. They according to the study, most incidents had no apparent political motive forty nine percents of cases had no traceable motive in politically motivated cases right wing extremism was identified as the main motive followed by activists hostile toward the state of Israel, which would be nine percent. So eighteen percents for white wing extremism nine percent for activists hostile toward the state of Israel Islamic motive was only identified in two percents of the cases. But again, that is leaving more than half of all these incidents off the board. So we just don't really know in those particular cases, and if Germany were to follow the broader patterns in Europe, it would suggest that it is anti semitism, that has led to this massive uptick. There's a report from the European Union agency for fundamental rights back last year. James, Kirk reported for tablet magazine, it found that much of the upswing is predominantly, Muslim and origin. According to the findings are dispiriting it confirmed. What many? No, but he will say that European anti-semitism is predominantly Muslim origin, followed in close, second by the left wing variety. According to respondents who experience some form events Medicare aspens in the past five years. Thirty percents of the perpetrators are Muslim twenty one percent where people espousing left wing view, that would be a majority only thirteen percents, expressed a right wing view. A third of respondents in Europe, where Jewish say that they no longer feel safe there as using are considering emigrating left-wingers responsible for a full quarter of anti semitic harassment in the United Kingdom kingdom, that is more than twice that of right-wingers and exceeded only by those views, or religious background, the victims could not describe in Germany, where the absorption of over one million mostly Muslim immigrants has propelled, the nationalist alternative for Deutsche lend into becoming the country's third largest political party, sparking fears of a right-wing revival forty one percent of the perpetrators were reported to be Muslim just twenty percent right wing. So something is getting hidden here something is getting hit in here really. The German government is reporting as they did today that eighty nine percents of all anti semitic incidents were traceable to the far-right. But this survey from the EU is finding that forty one percents of perpetrators of anti-semitic harassment were reported to be Muslim in Germany and just twenty percent right wing. That's a massive massive discrepancy suggest that perhaps the government of Germany is not being honest about its districts. The reason all this is important is because if you want to acknowledge, what exactly is happening. In europe. You have to acknowledge that taking invest swabs of people without any move toward assimilating, those people or figuring out, whether those folks agree with western values, that's going to be a problem. Any place you do. This is going to be a problem. It doesn't matter any prevailing culture, or a bunch of folks from the non-privileged culture who oppose the values the prevailing culture, enter that will create cultural conflict, and it doesn't matter. Which cultures you're talking about. And this is not to suggest that Muslims can't be great citizens of Europe or the United States at all. They can be. But if you were taking invest, unvetted, Muslim migration from areas of the world that have no history of western values are really shocked when vast one of those people are not simulating in that has some problems with it. This is I think what is driving people nuts in Europe. And in the United States this notion. The can't be protective of your country's culture by asking that folks assimilate. And then if you do that, you are some sort of racist that you are some sort of bigot. It's really despicable. And that's what the left is the center has done to the center has been doing this in Europe. And that's why more people are moving away from the centre. They're saying if we cannot say that we want immigrants who come into our countries to be vetted, so that they believe in our system, or willing to change to believe in our system. Then why exactly would listen to you or bringing in a lot of these folks without regard for that, again, multi-culturalism is such a fail in Europe that even angle miracle, and David Cameron have suggested multi-culturalism was a fail. The same England who brought a million Muslim refugees from the Middle East is suggested that multi-culturalism is a giant fail because it is. And yet, the political class, in Europe refuses to acknowledge the multi-culturalism is a fail because the alternative would be to call for assimilation or too slow immigration. It'd be more picky about immigration. And a lot of folks in European Europe, chattering classes, don't want to do that, not really sympathy reasons but because many of the countries of Europe rely on new immigrants. In order to provide the labor base for what's happening in Europe Europe has an incredibly slow growth rate. Thanks to lower birth rates. It's not a wonder that people in Europe are polarizing on these
