I gotta say we've been blessed with having the best of the best when it comes to the world's great chefs visiting and talking with us and our teams at Bloomberg. That includes someone who is one of the original iconic chefs. Emeril lagasse is a world renowned chef and restaurateur. He's the host of emerald cooks and emerald tailgates. It's on Roku. He stopped by our studio here at Bloomberg headquarters to talk about the state of the restaurant business. The big easy and his four decade long career in the kitchen. It's been a few years and a lot of content in the continuous. You know, it's just like it doesn't stop because the restaurant business doesn't stop. Once you stop then the customer stops, the excitement stops, you know, the creativity has to keep going on. And you have to keep driving every single day. So that's the message of the staff every day. Let's get up today and let's try to do a little bit better than we did yesterday. And let's make it exciting so that the guests are excited to come back. What's interesting? I mean, I want to get back to the program in the show and in just a minute. But before we do that, I want to get an update from you about what's been happening over the last couple of years. Because when we do speak and speaking of sometimes things do stop and we saw the world shut down during the pandemic and I know that the fact that the restaurant industry so much. You had to close some restaurants during the pandemic. Talk about what the last two and a half years were like for you. Well, you know, I was closed for a little over two years. Do you ever think about that? No, it's amazing. But you know, there's good and bad, right? So the good thing is is that it gave me a chance to really be at home, which I never really had a lot of time to be at home with the family. It gave me a chance to really sort of dig in my inner soul to say, okay, where are we here? And where do we want to go and how are we going to get there? Because some things are great. And some things aren't so great. And so what happens to close 7 restaurants? We have 5 open now. Not counting the amazing bistro at sea at carnival cruise line soon to be two. We're going to do our second emerald bistro on a new ship called celebration, where first restaurant is on Mardi Gras, go figure. But getting back to the restaurant business it was, it was a difficult time because his no revenue coming in. But I kept my staff for the 5 restaurants. Wow. So that's expensive. Very expensive. And obviously a very big commitment to the community that we're in. Two in Las Vegas. How many people is that? Well, I went from a little less than 1800 staff members right now we have just a little under 800. So but I don't know where they went. That's the other thing you talk to the restaurateurs and chefs. It's like, you know, the labor pool out there talk to Danielle, talk to Eric repair. Where do they go? It's like, you know, I talked to my doctor friend. He's having trouble getting a nurse, you know? It's crazy. We've talked about it with economists at market watchers. It's just like, how is it persistently that so many people have just kind of left the workforce and stayed out of it. And some of it I get of retirees and so on and so forth. But that's not necessarily the case. But you know what? Here's the thing, is that the majority of those people went retirees or even close to being retirees. They were young people 2030, 40, right? Still had a lot in them and a lot more to go, but I just don't. It's so difficult these days. Staffing supplies. I mean, you still today. I mean, we are working on a renovation project right now. And I have to order stoves like a year in advance in ten months in advance because it used to be like you could pick up the 401k 6 months 6 weeks. Boom, now it's not like that at all. It's all the way around. So it's still as persistent problems. Yeah, it's difficult operating out there. But you know what, what you have to do is you're going to pull back the range and you got to go back and say, okay, and then you got to go to the team and say, all right, how are we going to do this better? And how we've already passed survival. So we're already past that stage. Gate one is gone. So how are we going to get there? I have to say,

Susanna, Bloomberg's Denise Pellegrini. U.S. retailers discounted heavily on Black Friday to clear out bloated inventories, but customers responded with only modest traffic, and that leaves profitability in doubt from any chains. There were also trying to stand out by dangling the deepest discounts since before the pandemic. Punam goyal is a senior retail analyst with Bloomberg intelligence. There's too much inventory in the marketplace and retailers can use the 5 day period to really clear some of that inventory, but also they need to have targeted promotions. Even though inventory isn't high in certain areas, whether that's video games or elsewhere, they still need to offer these discounts because that's what the consumer is trained to shop or over the 5 day period. You as consumers are still spending, but inflation is making them more cautious. Online sales will have risen to between 9,000,000,009.2 $1 billion on Black Friday.

How Can the GOP Be Reformed? Monica Crowley Weighs In

"Can the GOP be reformed? And then what tools do we have for the two years whilst they still have The White House to try and just rein in the economic insanity yeah, so because we're going to have all of these fresh GOP faces in Congress. Number one, the first thing that they are going to do is stop all of this crazy spending that's delivered this wild inflationary environment that's hurting everybody. I don't care if you're Jeff Bezos or your dog walker for a living. I don't care where you are on the income scale. You're being crushed by inflation. So the first thing that the Republicans need to do is stop buying legislative agenda, okay? Stop it dead in his tracks. They can not be afraid to be called obstructionists or any other name. They literally have to say no to everything that comes out of The White House and just stop it. Now, Joe Biden can still do a lot of damage by executive order. But if you can at the very least just say no to everything that comes from the administration on Capitol Hill, then you can begin to rein in some of this. There are still trillions of dollars in the pipeline that need to be spent that have already been committed by the Democrats. So inflation will continue because this money is still going to go out there. But the number one thing is just block everything in Congress,

"You look at the GDP number that we had, and I realized the administration is going hog wild for that, right? They think that this was just fantastic news. It's not enough. I'm going to tell you that it's not enough. And when you look at all the warnings signs out there, including just some data that we're seeing on home construction that just came out, all the signs point to major troubles ahead. You look at all the CEOs that have come out. Jeff Bezos being one of the most recent ones saying this is going to get rather ugly. And I think you need to recognize and prepare for that. The problem is we have an administration that doesn't want to admit it. I mean, heck, they get James Taylor out there on the front line on The White House playing tunes to celebrate how they're stimulus package, their inflation reduction act, give me break the title of all titles. Talking about a misnomer and miss leading that, my dear is fake news. Anyway, the James Taylor out there playing to celebrate how unemployment's going down when it's not or inflation is going down when it's not. It's not adjusted for inflation wages actually are in a far worse place, inflation is still sky high no matter what Joe Biden is trying to say no matter the spin that's out there. And it's just getting to the point where I think Americans are saying, okay, enough.

The Latest Attacks on Elon Musk

"There's been a spate of recent attacks on Elon Musk. The most recent of which, here's the outline in the telegraph. Whether it's with one of his executives or an eccentric pop star, the Tesla founder has been busy creating a cadre of progeny. So apparently they've counted that he apparently has some ten children from several mothers. And they're going to talk about who all these mothers are. Now, what's interesting is that this kind of article you don't see on George Soros. You never see on Warren Buffett. You never see on Jeff Bezos. And now you might say, well, Warren Buffett is too straight laced. Well, maybe. But there are plenty of plenty of billionaires who would fall into this category, and yet they get lionizing treatment from the left. Until a singular event which puts them on the target screen and then the relentless attacks begin. Talk about what this singular event is. This singular event has becoming a Republican. Yes. For sure. Well, in a way, the person who sort of demonstrates the genre better than anyone else is, of course, Trump is from Trump Lion eyes, Trump was a cultural celebrity. He was cool. Rappers loved him. Everybody wanted to take photos with Trump. Oh, yes. He was at the boxing match. He was at the world of yes. Trump was cool. He was very cool and nobody and nobody talked about his ex-wives or anything like that about his personal life. Until he decided. In fact, not only do they not do that, but they glamorized it. If you look at Vanity Fair profiles of Trump and I'm sure Elon Musk won the left, this article. Would have made it used to think he was. And that's why he was kind of cool. The Tesla founder was kind of cool. The electric car. Oh yeah. Technology. The Silicon Valley connection, the self made, these from South Africa. I used the richest man in the world. Yeah. And it was a big deal. He was a really big deal. And again, I mean, what is the common denominator? They became, well, they not only did they become Republicans, but they denounced the Democratic

You know, when I have Briggs and I want to bring him right up to me, there's a German command called foos, which means get beside me and cut it out. You know, any dog owner Victor marks, you see with a dog. Get over here. Cut it out. It's actually another German word phooey. He's knock it off. It's very direct. That's how the left treats their own. And they've been saying to Elon Musk the last couple of weeks, foos, foos, get beside me, come to heal, and Elon's like, no. I'm not going to. Now the latest tabulations of where his net worth is, they kind of re tabulated every single day. It's about $221 billion today. He certainly has the net worth still to be able to purchase Twitter. We don't even know how valuable SpaceX is. SpaceX is probably way more valuable than anything they publicly disclose. Elon's going to be just fine. For those of you that are like, wow, Tesla stock is really down. I don't think he's going to have to take out a second mortgage anytime soon. However, it does dampen his potential purchasing power. But the left hates Elon because he will not be totally and completely blindly obedient to everything they tell him to do. You see, the way it's supposed to work. And by the way, Jeff Bezos is getting a little Elon Musk energy recently. I'm not a fan of Bezos, but Bezos is like angrily tweeting towards Biden too.

"You think about Jeff Bezos being much more sort of in step with the liberal left given that he owns and runs up well he owns Washington Post. Anyway, he's out there. He's stepping up his criticism of the Biden administration on Twitter. This is pretty good. He's going to new one out. I'm going to share with you, but what I loved was what he put out on Friday as we went into the weekend. This thing was epic. Epic. On Friday. Jeff Bezos called President Biden over a tweet in which Biden said that taxing wealthy corporations could actually help lower inflation. Okay, that's just wrong, right? It's just wrong because think about it for two seconds. If you tax corporations more, they still need to deliver to their shareholders, therefore they're just going to raise prices even more. So that actually really doesn't make any sense. He said, and I quote, you want to bring down inflation, let's make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share. This was on May 13th. And Bezos then retweeted it with some info of his own urging, well, sort of urging the disinformation board to review that one, right? He said quote, raising corporate taxes is fine to discuss. Taming inflation is critical discuss. Mushing them together is just misdirection. In other words, where's the government disinformation board that ministry of truth as we like to call it? Where are they when you need it? Oh, wait a second. They can't actually help in this case because you see the government itself. Is the source of the misinformation?

"Let me turn to Jeff Bezos because I would just say that this is once again emblematic emblematic of the hypocrisy that you so often see on the left. Jeff Bezos might, in fact, even be kind of more of a hypocrite than anyone thought. I mean, this is pretty wild. He's out there super liberal, runs in The Washington Post, or owns it, I should say. And he is in hot water now because he's not okay with unions. His company, Amazon, has just been caught firing employees that were responsible for creating a union in one of his biggest shops. Think about that. I mean, it's kind of amazing, right? Amazon gets rid of these guys because, well, one would have to assume they're saying it's job performance, but one would have to question why they got rid of them in a time like this when these were the guys that were responsible. Of course, for the creation of a union in their shop. Company doesn't want a union, and while look, I get it, and I can understand why management maybe doesn't want one, the reality is this. You know what? You can't do that. Jeff Bezos. She can't do that, Amazon. You can't fire people for trying to start a union at your company. And yet, well, we don't know. I suppose this will go to a much higher level, but it doesn't seem good. The employees themselves say they were fired for organizing the shop that resulted in the company's first unionized warehouse in the United States.

"How should we think about the Elon thing as American conservatives, right? So, I mean, I have a nuanced view of him as a person. I don't really appreciate his China production or his Neuralink stuff. But I certainly love the fact that he's willing to use resources. A lot of them to do something what seems to be admirable. How should we think about this? Yeah. No, that's exactly right. I think it's important that we don't just become Musk cheerleaders and pretend that he's now based in right wing. I honestly know very little about his political views. I think he's an interesting person, but here's what we know for sure, right? The reaction from the incumbent elites, the people who own most of the media, and most social media platforms already was almost entirely negative. Toward the idea of Elon Musk resting control of a key institution. And Twitter is, I mean, the people that work yesterday is saying, Twitter is a private company. Therefore, if Twitter wants to ban the president of the United States, they can do that. And now that Musk is taken over, it's like, well, hold on, it's not a private company. You know, suddenly it's actually correct when they say that. Twitter is because of the sheer size, it has, because of the sheer size and the control that it has of information, it is actually correct to say Twitter is not just a company. It is in its own way, a kind of public institution at this point, just because of the size of it, right? And I think that the fact that Musk taking control of Twitter seemed to enrage all of these other elites, you know, you've got the former CEO of Reddit, writing an article in The Washington Post, which is owned by a billionaire Jeff Bezos, saying, you know, we need more regulations to prevent rich people from owning the means of communication. That should tell you that these people are afraid of losing control over a tool that allows them to control information the way Twitter

Elon Musk: A Good Sign of Free Speech Is Allowing Someone to Disagree

"Why is it that a Saudi prince Vanguard and all of the really angry unhappy people on television are going from not caring at all about Elon to a straight ten out of ten to try to prevent him from buying Twitter and turning it into a free speech platform. Well, this is why. Cut 89 Elon Musk explains this. Listen to it yourself. And a good sign as to whether there is free speech is someone you don't like allowed to say something you don't like. And if that is the case, then we have free speech. And it's damn annoying when someone you don't like says something you don't like. That is a sign of a healthy functioning free speech situation. And we don't have that right now. Donald Trump is not on Twitter. I'm not on Twitter. People have tried for years to get me off Twitter. And we've been suspended. Donald Trump has been banned. So here's how it works. Jeff Bezos can buy The Washington Post, Elaine pal jobs is able to run the Atlantic, Bill Gates can dictate global health policy, but Elon can't buy Twitter. It's because Twitter really has become a place where the most consequential ideas and mostly journalists get their stories and it's the top of the tributary. It's the beginning of the downstream effect. Is that if you are able to have a free and open Twitter, it will then open and liberate the conversations in op eds, it'll open and liberate the conversation in newspapers, Tucker Carlson, beautifully put it. It's where elite opinion is

How Should Elites Treat Their Country?

"Treat their country? How should the people in charge of their country and the economic elites or in cultural institutions or in the movies or in any form of power? How should they treat their country? Well, a hundred years ago, Carnegie Mellon and chase, they were some of the wealthiest people ever in the history of the planet. Now there is no doubt that they were powerful and that they had wealth, but they used that wealth largely to try and preserve America, build hospitals, libraries, build YMCAs, build things that actually helped the well-being of the nation. They wanted a strong America. Now, over the last couple of years, a common lament from this program has been the fact that the people who are in charge of our country, the wealthiest people, are involved in this pattern of self hatred. They're engaged in this relentless pattern of not doing what's best for the country of engaging in ideas for the World Economic Forum, the suppression of free speech, woke ideology, the suffocation of the individual, we have talked about how people like Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos and George Soros and the Google people and the Louis Vuitton guy. They seem to be so fixated on using their unlimited wealth to do things that actually hurt the cause of liberty. Not help the cause of liberty. That hurt the strength of America and weaken America. This has seemed to be almost overwhelming, especially the last couple of years. We've been complaining about how AstraZeneca Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna.

"Experience and the way Steve and other phone companies had done it. And they just wasted a bunch of money. And Jeff just said, oh, no worries. Let's just move on. And he didn't fire anybody. He just said, what can we learn from this experience? And I thought that was such a fascinating piece to the culture because Jeff knows really well as an entrepreneur. If he's trying to juggle a hundred balls, a lot of those balls are going to break. But if one of them works really well, it's going to make up for every other loss project for him that one ball was AWS. You got to take the at bats, you got to swing if you don't swing, you're not going to have any opportunities to have the home runs occur. So one final question here, Brendan, when you break down this guy, here's a guy that was a Wall Street executive and the company and the success speaks for itself, but why do you think he himself is such a great entrepreneur? Did he learn it? Is he a great student? Did he watch other people? Is he naturally gifted? Is he just brilliant and smart? What is it about him, the DNA of an entrepreneur is what I really want to get to the core of? You know what's fascinating, Billy? I wish I had a perfect answer for you. But that's probably the greatest mystery behind Jeff. Because pretty much all we know based on my knowledge, he went to Princeton, he was super passionate about space. He always wanted to go to space. And then becomes a Wall Street executive and then starts an Internet company. And now he's going to space. So it's a weird plethora of experience, because remember, he started emphasis at the age of 29 30. He didn't say I want to be an entrepreneur since the beginning. No, he went to go work on Wall Street. So what does this tell us? Here is what this tells me. There's a couple of qualities that I think stand out..

"Was ten times cheaper, ten times faster and ten times better. And that's why Jeff was a scary entrepreneur. If you ask me another example, Billy of another company that has done this, I actually have a heart I would actually have a very hard time figuring out I can name your founders in each category. But a founder who has done all three in a single company, that is absolutely scary. And that's what Jeff has done in spades. But going back to you who's listening, you only need one of this three. You could either be ten times cheaper, you could either pay ten times faster or ten times better. It's just the reason why Jeff is revered as one is the best entrepreneurs of all time. He did all three and he executed all three exceptionally. Well, how did he do it? If you could boil it down, what do you think are the reasons how he was able to do all three when most struggle to do just one? Yeah, I would say the first piece is long-term vision. This is what Jeff has that a lot of entrepreneurs don't have is yet a 20, 30 year vision for Amazon. It wasn't a quick buck, where it's like, oh yeah, we're just going to sell a bunch of books, make a lot of money and then sell the company. No, that's actually to use Jeff his own product. His first prize analogy, that was chapter one of his 50 chapter game, or 500 chapter game. And I think chapter 500 is landing on Mars, which is super fascinating. It's start with selling books, then go into toys. They had like a negotiation Toys "R" Us and then kind of crush them, which is another thing. And then after that, they went to other verticals. They started dominating all the verticals that after they went down is on pride that all that stuff and other doing TV and media will also say is Jeff has been exceptionally good at having a multi decade vision. Most of us don't really get the following, including.

"Any inventory costs. Amazon just has to ship what book to what house to another or if they did have inventory costs. They're nowhere near the cost of Barnes and noble or in other bookstore. So they had all those three key advantages. So anyone who wanted to buy books pretty much had to do it on Amazon. And the same way that if you wanted to rent CDs in an easy way, DVD specifically, Netflix was the time was the winner. So same thing with Amazon. So it's the way that he approached the market that was just as smart as his execution. Right. And I think keyword there execution. I think it's a really important point because there's a lot of people who could have done the same thing in terms of sell books, but how you do it matters. And in a minute, we're going to talk about this idea of providing the best service, but also the greatest value at the best cost. We're also going to talk about culture. But before we get into those, just as a point of reference, you talk about 1994, while you may not have been born, I was a junior in high school. I didn't get my first email address, tell college, two years later, in 1995, 96, I literally my first email address was in college. And so here he is starting an Internet company before is what we know today. And to your point, dial up modem, those who lived during that era, that sound very well. And they also know just how slow the Internet was. So timing is really important and approach is very important. Notice, he didn't try to do everything. So why is before we get into the culture piece and before we get into the value and providing the best service, why is it better if we look at businesses? Why is it better to start small and expand out than try to do everything all at once? Absolutely. So the reason and we've seen this in many different instances and been different companies, air-b-n-b did the same thing..

"Glad to have you on this journey and hope you enjoy this episode of inside out. We're going to talk about the one the only Jeff Bezos or you would say Bezos. I don't know what the proper pronunciation is, but whatever we call him, one thing's for sure is one of the greatest entrepreneurs ever. Of all time. And I think anybody would have a tough argument to combat that statement. Just look at his track record. He's taking a company from being online bookstore to being the juggernaut that it is today. And that's not an accident. It happens because the person who created the company is a genius and has done so many things well. And so today, we're going to talk about his success formula. And so I know we have a few different topics that we want to explore. And we will get into the story going back in time, getting the full version of what happened why he started it as an online bookstore and how it evolved over time and what the reasons are that have helped Amazon be the success that it is, but let's start with something called the regret minimization framework. What is that? And why are we going to start there? Absolutely, you know, if I'm Jeff such a fascinating character and he's honestly someone, even if I know a lot about him, I still feel I need to sharpen up my knowledge. I need to learn more about the incredible mind that is Jeff Bezos or Bezos, whatever it may be. That's one of the things I need to master. But going to the regret manifestation framework. The most powerful thing Jeff has taught me personally is the decision on whether or not he should even do Amazon. So essentially what happened is when he was 29 or 30 years old, Billy, he was working at a company called DE Shaw. It's an investment training firm in New York City. And he was asking himself, should I start? And he was realized that the Internet from his math is math was actually wrong, but he thought the Internet was going by 2300% annually. The answer was actually 230,000% annually. It's pretty nuts. I was just reading that on a Wikipedia page. So what made them actually quit that job in pursuit Amazon? Because there's a lot of risk obviously. And the decision that was solely based pretty much on what he calls the regret minimization framework. So it goes something like this. He pictured himself 80 years old. At that age, on a rocking chair, thinking back at his life. And what he says is that life is not about experience saying as much as you can, but rather regretting the least amount of things as possible. And I thought that idea was super fascinating. So you just asked himself if I was 80 years old that I didn't pursue Amazon or try something. Would I regret it? And he said the answer was absolutely yes. Even if you failed, if you were to sat on that chair and said, you know what I tried? But if you never tried, you would have regretted it until his deathbed. So that's probably the most important lesson I learned from Jeff that I applied in my own life. Yeah, no, it makes perfect sense. And I think if we really boil it down when most people reflect on their life at the end, and you ask them what regrets do you have? They usually regret what they didn't.

"Peaking inside. Jeff bazars his brain. What's up everyone. This is alex. Lieberman co founder and executive chairman of morning breath. Welcome back to founders journal my personal audio diary where i give you the business builder the tools you need to better in order to build better whether that's building a business a team or product. Today i'm talking about timeless lessons. Learned from the letters of jeff bezos. Let's hop into it. Jeff bezos is one of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time. He's been building amazon for the last twenty six years and one of the most amazing things about jeff. Bezos is we as builders have the ability to study his brain from twenty six years of writing letters to shareholders of the company. Walk you through. Four of the most impressive lessons we can all glean from the nineteen ninety seven letter the first public letter that bazo throat to amazon shareholders lesson. One the words that you use matter this first letter written in nineteen ninety-seven has one thousand six hundred and seventeen words and the most use word that isn't a preposition or conjunction is customer. It occurs twenty five times in the letter just about one percent of all words. What you say as a leader matters a ton it focuses you and it focuses the people who look to you for guidance people may argue whether jeff bezos is primary goal in building amazon was serving customers or building the company into a trillion dollar empire but regardless of the answer to that question he knew what mattered most the costumer bezos knew. That amazon's plan was simple and that at the center of this plan sat the customer execution would be highly difficult which meant that he his customers and his employees had to be focused obsessively on the same exact thing and repetition of the word customer made clear to bazo and to his stakeholders that the only thing that truly mattered was the costumer that amazon served. That's lesson number. One lesson to conviction is key. Every great entrepreneur has one thing in common and that is conviction conviction is having a deep rooted and potentially contrarian belief that an opportunity you see is untapped undervalued and underappreciated the conviction that jeff bezos has amazon's opportunity is so crystal clear throughout this shareholder. Letter with the second sentence in this entire letter. Bazo makes his conviction in the internet and amazon opportunity. So simple yet so profound. The wine goes quote but this is day one for the internet and if we execute well for amazon dot com and quote and what. Jeff bezos saw was this tidal wave called the internet and he felt so much conviction that if he could be in the best position to surf that wave he could create something. Massive this conviction in his vision is what kept him. Relentlessly focused on serving the customer atop the internet for the last twenty. Six years so lesson to conviction is key lesson three. You can't be a clear thinker without acknowledging trade-offs while amazon's nine hundred ninety seven letter. Oozes of confidence it's not without appreciation of the risks. The sentence that stands out to me is where jeff says. This strategy is not without risk. It requires serious investment and crisp execution against established franchise leaders. What jeff basically saying here is this massive tidal wave in the internet. That jeff sees. He's not the only one to see it. There are other large companies with a shit ton of resources that see the wave as well and they're going to try to surf it to and the thing about this market from jeff's point of view and i agree with it is that it's winner-takes-all defined by network effects. Were every new. Customer makes the platform better for the customer that came before them which means from his perspective underinvesting and under executing to establish market leadership is the worst case scenario. That's less number. Three acknowledged trade offs and risks whenever you communicate an idea or decision the fourth and final lesson in the one thousand nine hundred seven shareholder letter. Jeff bezos is in incredible expectation center. What i have found from my work on morning brew and entrepreneurship in general. Is that the number. One failure of managers and leaders is an inability to set expectations with peers. Whether it's out of fear or due to unclear communication leaders will tend to under promise or miss articulate to their employees or shareholders all the time and what. Jeff bezos has done so masterfully is make his vision and priorities for amazon crystal to his shareholders. It is mistake -able. He does this in the letter by saying quote because of our emphasis on the long term we may make decisions and way trade offs differently than some companies. Accordingly we want to share with you our fundamental management and decision-making approach so that you our shareholders may confirm that it is consistent with your investment philosophy and quote. Now why are these two sentences so incredibly important. Because it's about expectation setting at the highest level and aligning every stakeholder of amazon towards the same northstar. Typically one of the difficult parts of running a public company is building for the long term. While managing short-term expectations do having to report quarterly earnings. Basically this line is bazo saying screw the difficulty that companies have always had with managing quarterly. I'm going to make investing in amazon ogden. I'm going to tell you we're building for the long term and you shouldn't evaluate us quarterly. And if you don't agree with that philosophy great you don't have to invest in the company and so those are the four timeless lessons from a twenty four year old document by one of the greatest entrepeneurship our time lesson. One the words you use matter customers repeated twenty five times in one thousand six hundred seventeen ward letter. Lesson to conviction is key. Having a deep rooted belief in something that you believe is under valued. Untapped under appreciated is consistent in every great entrepreneur lesson. Three you cannot be a clear thinker without acknowledging trade-offs and risks in every decision. You make and lesson four. Setting expectations is the number one failure of managers. And one of the most important things you can do as a leader as always thank you so much for listening to founders journal.

"Now it's not surprising that supreme court punted on this thing because congress is actively considering the issue and as a sort of war and and brett cavanaugh and one of the other justices wrote today in an unusual explanation of why they voted to deny sharara they said look. We got to let congress figure this out because congress has burden of national events and national security. So it's up to them. And i just wanna make sure everybody's because i think it's a it's an interesting and significant political and social moment movement. I suspect that many people don't realize i sort of know this because i have a son but only vaguely and then this reminded me like. Oh yeah we have this draft registeration boys and men which is a highly Outdated situation so we say don't we and so when when your son turns eighteen. He's got a march on down on the post office and fill out that form. Actually you can do it online now but but yeah. They add something interesting. I on that okay. All right good number two. I just thought this was really interesting. In our continuing conversations about crypto and bitcoin and my particular obsession with if it's so volatile all the damn time has it ever gonna become a useful currency. So here's the interesting part you. Seeing the department of justice today said look we recovered Sixty three point seven of the bitcoin. That colonial pipeline paid On the seventh of may to resolve the ransomware attack and that bitcoin is worth two point three million dollars which is great except for this on the day that colonial paid sixty three point seven bitcoin plus a little bit because they only got back part of it It was worth four point. Seven billion sorry. Three point seven billion dollars in other million in other words where the other one point four million dollars go. It went to volatility. It went because on the day they paid. Bitcoin cost you fifty six thousand dollars and today bitcoin cost you thirty five thousand dollars and i just i just why. Why do people i mean. Look as i said. My thinking has been changed on bitcoin and a lot of ways but one of them is not that ov- attila these. Okay and it's gonna work itself out and eventually we will be buying pizza with it because that's just crazy crazy crazy. I really liked it. That's the part of the story that you're a little hung up on like like bananas about this. Is that there. Bitcoin totally dropped in value is true and and all of that is true but also i just think it's amazing that they were able to claw back some of this ransom at all. I'm very curious as to how that worked out with respect to that virtual wallet. I don't totally understand the mechanism of how you cash out your bitcoin. They're like atm's and conversions but maybe it takes a long time to launder that much. Bitcoin and that's why they weren't able to cash out in the volatility bid them but i think it's pretty well fascinating and also that law enforcement is saying like maybe we need to go after cryptocurrency as a way to stop ransomware attacks which we will talk about some more tomorrow but that is fascinating to me too so i thought of the same thing for two reasons number one. I thought of course of your three hundred. Bitcoin that vaporize and how by god let's get the department of justice on that number twos something else you just said which is laundering bitcoin. I didn't think you had the laundry. Bitcoin because bitcoin like anonymous. And it's right. So why are they still hanging onto it. I guess waiting for it to go back for something for you. Right launder except that. If you don't wanna paul victim fall victim to the volatility presumably you would want to carry out in some way you want to but right away turn around and sell it unless that is to i. Yeah these are all the parts of the blockchain met. I don't totally get for sure But also i think if anything is going to lead to regulation. I was having this conversation with a friend of mine in finance the other day. About just like what. Is everyone waiting for when it comes to regulating. What he refers to as klepto crypto. Yeah i said well. It's i think it's because it's trillion dollar asset classes until it actually starts to become a threat to the financial System they're happy to profit off of it in the short term and habit as part of their portfolios but if anything is going to kickstart that regulation it could be this kind of like ransom payment situation. I don't know for sure for sure that no. I'm going on willow here. That's no gun tennis ball so might as well go yes. Yeah one is. Just kind of a Bummer to report. Which is that. Despite the pandemic and brief dip in emissions not not so much turns out in fact The levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere reached the highest level since accurate measurements began. Sixty three years ago. Scientists said monday which is essentially. Like what's happening every year since they started measuring sixty three years ago. They said fossil fuel burning is really at the heart of this. And if we don't tackle that it's not going to go away by an just just a gentle reminder that we you know by most accounts have about ten years to start heading quickly in the other direction with respect to carbon emission. So so that's fine. That's a fun one. I also super interested in this situation with the fda alzheimer drugs. Drug the one drug that. The fda has approved The first new medication for alzheimer's disease and almost twenty years. And there's all this controversy around this approval because not to put too fine a point on it in clinical trials. That didn't seem to work that well. It did not reach the goals even of the that. Set up the trials There is there were the fda advisory panel recommended unanimously like ten to zero that. The fda not approved this drug. They said it's it's unclear whether it is effective at all and then on top of that it has these side effects that are you know. One to one point. Three percent And are serious and so it's possible that taking it could even be riskier than not taking patients and it's just a. It's a really interesting and complicated question. There were some some groups that advocated for it but didn't that they had taken money from the pharmaceutical companies that make the drug It two separate groups. In fact and and including i think the alzheimer's association was one of them. I'm gonna find this. Because i'm still in the bitcoin story And so it it. You know there's public citizen watchdog group that has is essentially saying like this is regulatory capture on the part of the fda. There is also the argument that for twenty years research into alzheimer's drugs has stalled because none of them ever work or get approved and so no one can make any money and so if there is a sense that someone would make money in that. There is a path to approval. That maybe that could actually kick start. Research into this. Just horrifies just hor horrific disease you know yeah and yet in this case it is really. It is really complicated. Because it's a very expensive drug that's gonna make these companies a lot of money. And the fda has required it basically gave them an expedited review required them to can continue to conduct trials. And could although it almost never has done this. Potentially clawback speaking of flying back it smooth addition So i don't know so. Yeah so yeah. It's like we really want to have hosted. This thing can be tackled entreated and eventually cared and doesn't this isn't that confidence inspiring and somebody's. I wonder if the last year has changed the fda at all just given the spotlight the pressure. You know. i mean. I i say this with zero reporting binded i just. It's but it's because they've been in the crosshairs all it's actually. One of the criticism has been leveled over and over in the course of the pandemic is that they were too slow and bureaucratic and how progress in approving treatments and other things so it is the that's possible also money talk. Yeah okay. should we. She was canal to read more about that website. Make me smart dot org at marketplace dot. Org let's do make me smile. Zoe all right if i was the world's richest man and i'd been bankrolling a freaking rocket plan for ten twelve years. Whatever it was you bet your sweet baby. I'm going on the i ride. I am jeff bezos said. Today i'm going on blue origin when it goes. I don't know but it was like. Oh my god jeff. Jesus is going to space. Of course he is. Of course he is. It's hip. I will say a pretty smart. Pr stunt right like put your butt where your is wait. No i would like to that. I'm so sorry anyway. Take if you leave your it works. You should write go home monday. June oh okay okay. I'm changing the subject. Because what i find so interesting. The thing i like about this story is that. I did not know that mark that that jeff bezos has a brother and his name is mark and he is. Jeff bezos has d'appel ganger. Looks just like except with the mustache. So i'm assuming he stands in his body double all the time but they're both going and if i were their mother i would be like. Oh no come on that both going come on. Yes they get to go. Yeah i know parents who what even fly together. yeah well i'm just saying sometimes rockets art successful. that's true that is fair. But also i would. I made that observation this morning and tech producer. Michael lipkin alerted me to the fact that usa today had in fact already written the story that was like who the heck is marked as those. Why are they both going on the same rocket get. Oh that's funny so there you go. I wasn't the personally. He's kind of a double ganger. Kinda steadier looking though gotta tell you. He's looking yeah he's winning. This one thing and that thing is muscles. Sorry jeff us. Not the explains that picture of bezos about three or four years ago coming around the corner and that vest the guns you know what i mean not constantly mark. That's right i'm richard. I'm going to work out because he's not running amazon. Come on. that's my goodness. All right all right but in truth. I have waited this long to talk about the only thing that i care about today. Literal only thing that i care about which is that there is a new prince album coming for the first time since princess utterly devastating death in twenty sixteen. His estate will release a completed but never before heard album. That was finished in two thousand ten but sounds from the description in terms of its politics. Essentially it's very politically focused on for example misinformation the superficial nature of social media reality celebrity culture Racial inequity the estate said that the album ultimately concludes that america's the land of the free home of the slave includes a quote that he wrote at the time in two thousand ten saying the world is fraught with misinformation. Like for all. I would completely freaky. I mean prince saw at all saw dude was a genius very very freaky and i just can't wait. I can't wait. i'm with nicole. I actually just as i was about to pop onto the microphone. Side tweet from nicole. Childers the micro morning report senior producers saying or executive what are their titles these days the boss of the marketplace morning report. And she just said all prints all day long. And i was like yes me too. It'll be called. Welcome to america those five years coming out to lie which craziness all right and that's it. See easy peasy like nine different topics. We are nothing if not efficient that for today tomorrow. We're just gonna do one topic somewhere between one and nine topics We'll be actually doing a deep dive on this ransomware cyberattack situation which you know obviously there are more and more of them now they're going to be categorized in the same bucket as terrorist attacks also why they are happening and how we can prepare better if you have questions if there are things you want to hear during plsy melles also If we if you don't answer them tomorrow you might hear them on.

"It's a good. It's a good point. It's a good point. I mean how do you. How do you attack like amazon. In terms of taxes without immediately immediately taxing every small business. That's under their umbrella. Yeah there no you know the fucking if you become big enough on amazon with any product the immediately come out with their own version of that product and then fuck up you're listening and make their listing the recommended one and then put you at business. Yeah yeah that happened like company. Really because yeah. I've heard of other other products that they did that for off the top of my head like i said it's been a while since looked into this but there are other companies that they did that for like there was someone who is selling really well on amazon and then they just made the same product.

And it was the number one of that one product. And we're selling tons of thousand units today bobo a lot of money coming in and then i noticed boom like there's ten other people listen to that product.

"jeff bezos" Discussed on The Cave of Time

"Uncle jeff. Dj jazzy bazo. Time spanish his name is jeff kisses. Did i did notice. I did see that. Yeah zoom videos all screwed up and just fixing that up right now now might so. Jeff bezos is the richest man in the world. Do you have any disagreement that yeah. He's not he's not the richest man in the world. I thought you were going to have a disagreement with that. Yeah so why. Did you think. I would have a disagreement with that because we were talking earlier and you said something about like. Oh he's got a lot of liquid liquid assets or rather non liquid assets and people. Overestimate how richie is and you seem to have some contrary opinions in other regards. Well i mean okay. So he's he's the person with the highest net wealth according to what is it forbes and many others forbes forbes and that so like first of all what about someone like pooja or the saudis where we have no idea what their net worth is. You know yes. Yes i I work with some people who tell me that there are many people in saudi arabia. Her a richer than what we typically believed to be the richest man in the world or people in the world because their their books are closed right. So there's no way of knowing how much to have oil like the royal family. Like how do you know how much money they have you with us. No way of knowing right yeah. This is wealth that has been collected for thousand years. How could you possibly. There's no records. There's no there's no idea there's no shares. There's no market cap. There's no way to measure their wealth right so first of all. There's that second of all everyone talks about. Jeff bezos the numbers. Out right now but people are throwing numbers out like two hundred and thirty billion two hundred and fifty billion three hundred billion dollars. He doesn't have three hundred billion dollars sitting his bank account. So amazon's worth one point five or one point eight trillion dollars and he owns just over ten percent of it. Plus everything is liquidated plus all the business assets..
