"And John Brooks kind of been excluded. So people have that position's been open. It mapped me asca has not even come close to being an option for that left center back spot. So in my opinion, if you are not in the national team kind of roster, you should not be a DP for a defending. Would love to see him. Sign for Cincinnati though. That's it. Can I just the last thing I was gonna say is, I guess I sort of agree with you, but I would never say that. If I was FC Cincinnati, I would let the contracts you had laps and figure out your defenders. In the off season. I would not rush to make a move this window to be better or make the playoffs. If the right guy lands for you fine, but it feels like they did it with Noah boda, right? They didn't rush him in before the season. They had their guy, they waited until he was available, and they made the right move. That's what I hope they do because I would not try and double down on what's happening. If Miyazaki is their guy, I would disagree just a little bit. If they think Miyazaki is their guy, go get them because as Charlie said well, if he's their guy they have to go in because otherwise I'll be on a different team. But like three straight years of being the worst team in MLS, you gotta, you're right there on the cusp of being a playoff team. Why? They already won. They already won. They already won this year. They are relevant. They are better. They're in a playoff race. They are good. People like coming to their games. They already won. Why would you take a long-term risk? But if that's what I'm saying, if he's their guy, go get them, make the playoffs, man. I think the bigger question is probably brinner. They're in the playoffs. Apparently, they're hanging on. They're not in the playoffs until the end of the season, then you're in the playoffs. Right now you could say that, but you know, it could be one injury away from tanking. It's that simple. The game can change like that. When you have an opportunity to go out and get a player that will really put you over the top, to give you a good chance. Not only making the playoffs, but making a good run because once again, the playoffs, anything can happen. They could end up being into MLS Cup final. But I'm telling you right now, if you can go and get a player who's going to drastically improve your side, especially defensively, because Cincinnati are poor. They are poor defensively. That's what's holding them back. If they can get a real strong center back, they will improve drastically. And you go about Brendan now. If you can get him. I guess you could say Joe. And there's the had to bring it back. How to bring it back. Is there any sort of inkling of doubt in the mind of Chris all right now about selling him or do you just have to make that move? If the offers are on the table. But this is where I don't know..

"What are all the ways monkeypox can spread between people? Most of the spread happens from contact with the source, the open-source, a pretty high number of viruses in them, and so they're pretty infectious. It can also be spread through respiratory droplets and possibly aerosols, but John Brooks during the CDC press conference said that usually happens because there are undetected sores in the mouth and throat. And so when somebody before they have an open sore on their visible skin may have a sore in their mouth or throat may cough or breathe heavily around another person and transmit it that way. So really the sores are where the transmission comes from in monkeypox. Okay, so it's not like COVID style transmission where 15 minutes in a closed quarter, you're definitely gonna get it or something like that. Right, no, it's a very different type of transmission and you do not, you're so unlikely to catch this during just casual contact with somebody. So it makes it a lot easier to protect yourself if you are out and about in the world. The CDC this morning wants to calm the public fears over how the monkeypox virus is transmitted, transmitted. The agency emphasizing that it does not spread easily through the air like COVID-19. Monkeypox is primarily spread through sustained physical contact, such as skin to skin touch or someone with an active rash. The kind of contact that you need to have to transmit this really needs to be skin to skin or contact with an item that a person soar has had contact with. So what's unique about this virus compared with many others, including COVID is that it lives for a long time on surfaces. So there have been cases of transmission, for example, to the person cleaning the bedding of an infected person because they have contact with fluid that leaked from the sores onto that bedding. So you do need to have contact precautions around somebody that you know to be sick with this in order to prevent transmission. But that's a very different kind of practice than not sharing airspace as you can imagine. It could spread through aerosols just to be clear, but not nearly as likely as something like COVID. That's right. And it's just not nearly as likely for this particular pathogen to spread through aerosol as it is to spread through skin contact. How long is this disease been around and not, you know, been studied that closely? Well, good question. Monkeypox was first identified in the late 1950s when it was found to be infecting research animals, which were monkeys, which is why it has its name, but it usually lives in small rodents, usually in western Central Africa, and is kind of burd up in small outbreaks. Usually, chains of maybe one to three people usually household members in that part of the world since then. And only recently, maybe since 2017, have we started to see a whole lot of human to human transmission, and that has been in Nigeria primarily. An 11 year old boy living in abura was infected by the monkeypox disease, he and his family have been quarantined at the ninja Delta university teaching hospital. It kind of started with a big rainfall event that caused both people and animals to flee to higher ground. And so there's just a lot more contact between humans and the animals where this disease more naturally circulates. And there have been more and more transmission events and clusters in Nigeria such that there have been now 450 human cases.

"That's what it is. And miles Robinson who was a de facto starter on your U.S. spends national team is quite possibly out for the World Cup. We don't know when he will come back. Chris Richards is often injured. Mark McKenzie doesn't play. Walker Zimmerman may be your only player there. Cameron Carter Vickers has no experience with this used men's national team. Eric Palmer Brown, very little as well. There happens to be a player that has a wealth of experience. European pedigree experience in the Bundesliga who at one point was the highest transfer for any American in the world. Who happened to score a goal in a World Cup has World Cup experience. Aaron long is coming back from a torn Achilles tendon. It hasn't played much this season and you're still talking about other players. Just don't make an excuse as to why John Brooks isn't part of this. Let's just stop making the excuses. Give John Brooks an opportunity. Let people see him fell or let people see him succeed or say what it really is. Yeah, it is a snob. I don't know that it's much of a surprise anymore, right? And I get it. We're always when we talk about Brooks we're always talking about the reasons that berhalter's giving. One thing I would love for somebody to ever use in a defensive John Brooks is how he's actually playing. Some of you could be, hey, he played very, very well for Wolfsburg. If you're watching the Bundesliga every week and that's your take, fine. Or point to how he's played for the U.S. nationally. I never hear anybody talking about the first half against Canada or his performance against El Salvador. Nobody's ever talked about nobody has ever talked about the performances. One of the things, one of the reasons I believe there is that rift between Greg Berger and John Brooks, because in that first half he played poorly in that first half, he was also visibly seen questioning Greg berhalter and his tactics. That to me is the rift between them too. I don't have any proof of that, but based off of everything I've seen, that would lead me to believe. So berhalter talked specifically about John Brooks. He was obviously asked about it by the media in that press conference. He also hurt name checked three other guys who weren't injured, but were left off this roster to give him a chance to recover from their time in Europe. Ricardo peppy John Luca busio and James sands. Now, if I'm not injured and it's a World Cup year, I don't know that I really want time to recover. Certainly not if I'm Ricardo Pepe. So if we're going to talk snubs, I think we got to talk a little bit peppy. He's left off here berhalter had kind of warned us that this might come, but man, those World Cup odds for peppy right now are not looking good. I mean, Seth, would you have guessed this no talking about Ricardo Pepe on fire for FC Dallas? I mean, it was during Klinsmann on this show was said be careful what you wish for. Be careful where you go. Maybe the timing isn't at its best. And now we're talking about Ricardo peppy. Think about this. May not be a possibility to even make the roster in the World Cup. Think about this for a second. If you regard the Pepe, you want to be on this roster. You may not need to be on this roster. You may actually need a break. You may need to be mentally refreshed, but you want to be here. You want to prove yourself. And I think that's damning to Ricardo Pepe. All right, so we will see what happens with Ricardo peppy, not just in terms of the national team, but also his club future. Will it be another season of Augsburg for the young American? All right, so we got some new names relatively new on this roster as well. Guys who weren't really huge.

"Care if it's on both sides. I don't care if it's on one side. Put that aside. All that BS and it's John Brooks right now. You need to facilitate something for John Brooks to come back into the organization into this program and you get fast track them because he could be your starter or he could be a very important cog or a very important piece come World Cup time. You no longer have the luxury of just saying talented players are out the window. Couple quick questions here for you, herc. Who is in the driver's seat to pair with Zimmerman from the list that I'm looking at? Is it Chris Richards? Yes, this is Chris Richards. It's Chris Richards and you can slice up Mark McKenzie and Aaron long there four and 5 however you want Kramer Carter Vickers in. You can put Eric Palmer Brown. You can put in a map miyazu, whatever you want, I don't care. Okay? It's one, two, three right now that I am worried about. All that other stuff is subjective and people love to break them down and love to do the power rankings of whatever. I don't care. Concentrate on one, two, three, because those are gonna be the ones who are gonna be your main cogs or most important players come World Cup time. You already have a situation where you don't know who you're 9 is. Or they have a situation where you don't probably know who your goalkeeper is. Now it's the center back tandem. U.S. mustache fans can't catch a break. Another quick question here, because the reality is that John Brooks, whether you want him in or not, may not be under consideration. It might not be in this list. So if you had to take Brooks out and I'll give you some I'll give you some options here for who you can replace them with other guys that have been in or around the pool. Who's getting that 5th and last spot in your top 5. You got names like Eric Palmer Brown. You got Cameron Carter Vickers, who I think you mentioned. Somebody like Tim ream, who like it or not, will be a Premier League player next year. He just got re upped at Fulham. Probably a Cameron Carter Vickers or Matt miazga would be my two guys, but why are you trying to take John Brooks outside? Why don't you like about John Brooks Seb? No, it's nothing that I don't like about John Brooks. I'm just looking at the reality of what the national team manager has not just done. Let's look at the reality of those things. With his call ups, but what he said, he just told us a week ago. Dropping like flies. That is the reality. The only context we need here. He just told us a week ago, he would rather take a look at Cameron Carter Vickers than John Brooks. Look, we will leave the center back discussion for now. Let's talk about the surface herc on which miles on which miles Robinson was injured on Saturday. That artificial turf at Mercedes Benz stadium in Atlanta. And as I mentioned, it's not the first time that we've seen it, either on turf in MLS, this past week we saw it in Seattle with Joe Paolo or specifically in Atlanta. We saw it not in Achilles, but a knee injury with Brad guzan earlier this year. It was Achilles. Okay, how big of a problem hurt? How big of a problem is turf for Major League Soccer? It's a, it's a huge problem because perception is something that Major League.

"Canada or sorry in Nashville against Canada when he's arguing, I don't want to say arguing he's glancing over at the bench and displeasure in a what are we doing type of face because there's still zero zero versus Canada because things aren't going the U.S. mustache team. Wait, that's about the most negative thing I could say about John Brooks. This right here sounds like a club. To me, because I've seen this movie unfold plenty of times, player negotiations. They've offered him a new contract. The player says, wait a second. I'm free summer of 2022. There's a World Cup, November, okay? Why do I resign right now? Why don't I sign on a free? Why don't I leave on it free? Why don't I see what happens in the World Cup and then that transfer fee is money in my pocket and what can the club not do? We can not allow the player to leave on a free sudden things come out. That explains the Wolfsburg perspective. What about the comments or what's attributed to burr halter in this report from Bill? That's what would worry me if I was John Brooks. What's the connection there? I mean, Greg halter played in bonus Liga. Okay, can you know people with the build? Sure. Marcel Shay for the sporting director was his teammate at 1860 Munich. So you're saying you're saying that both the national team and his club team have turned on Brooks? No, what I'm telling you is it doesn't make sense. You said hit piece and I think that's a great way of putting it because Gregor halter has never said John Brooks is a problem. Has an attitude problem. John Brooks doesn't get called in. What's the first thing we see? It's John Brooks, put it out a press oppressor. And it's, hey, I didn't get called in. I need to do better, took the high road. And Greg berhalter never once said this man is a problem. His attitude with the group is a problem. So until somebody says that. Until we have an official report whether it's Wolfsburg or whether it's U.S. soccer federation or whether it's Greg Warhol to himself or John Brooks's mother, what is this? John Brooks, of course, one of the many champions are one of the many Americans involved in the group phase of Champions League. Did you see the draw for the knockout phase herc of championship? Which things? Yeah, exactly. Which one? Things.

"Goals on the road. Plan is an away team. And that's in two games, okay? This is a team that struggles to score goals to begin with. And now you're going to play against massat land who only lost one game at home. So as the home team, they only last one game all season, and that came in the hands of degas, who in minute 21, one of their players was red carded. So a conditioned the rest of the game. Besides that they were perfect at home. Oh, and by the way, high flying team, led by camillo's and beso, whose one behind the golden boots right now in the lead, who needs goals to win and guess what chivas doesn't do a good job of scoring goals. I just don't see a scenario where they back door their way in to the playoffs to el rappa Chaka. I think this is the end of the road for him. And can you imagine the reaction in Mexico if they don't make the playoffs? Oh yeah. Not that people maybe won't be so surprised, but I'm thinking again, why make this announcement about leono before you know if you're in the postseason? Because if you misrepresent, and you've now signed on family or for another season? Oh my gosh, it's gonna be it's gonna be fracasso times two when chivas lose or don't get the points that they need. Just wait till San Jose and Matthias almeda part ways. Then it's gonna blow up in everybody's face. There you go. It'll all perfectly work out. I'm sure to bring all interested parties back together. Let's go to the top 5 goals from the mid week. We got some good ones here. Not a full top ten. But we'll start in the college game. Brett Jones..

"Jonathan, no Santos, just to name a few. Her, let's go over this list of 26 players for Tata montina, who is your biggest surprise. Okay, so no antuna, that's a surprise, right? No Alexis Vega. Maybe another surprise, but you could say a lot of that is with form and injury. But then I think to myself, they're playing against the United States men's national team and who was by far the biggest winner the last time they face each other. And I'm talking about 18 versus 18. I'm talking to Nations League final. 18 versus 18 is Diego Linus and how he terrorized Tim ream. Have we changed the complexion of that game? And it's pretty much the same day go line as we've been seen throughout his career. It's a Diego Linus has been inconsistent now. Diggins was medically cleared in September. The 30th, medically cleared and he made the bench for Betty since then, I know he's only played a few games as a cameo appearance in Arab League 45 minutes, I think 20 minute appearance in La Liga, but he's been on the bench every single game since, so he's medically cleared. Nothing that's changed from Mexico. Same thing, same boat he was on when he played against the United States men's national team. It strikes me as odd that Tata martino for a two game window. You would offer three 9s Roja phones Maori Rao Jimenez, no arguments there. But then go with Henri Martin as a third 9 as if you would go through three 9s and two games and not have a change of pace guy like jager Lion is a guy who's proven who's proven he can hurt this enemy, the U.S. men's national team..

"9s. Well, what do you do? Instead of going back to the well in Major League Soccer for a Darryl DK who's been on a bit of a tear lately, ever since coming back from that shoulder injury, he's been playing a lot better. Instead of going for a player like that, you go for a player like his two straight data. So now you're putting all your eggs in that Ricardo Pepe basket. They've got the pep is gonna play both games. But what if he doesn't? He can't play both games. What if there's an injury? What if whatever happens in illness or he can't play is a Timothy way at that 9? No, it's gonna probably be. He suspected that who's played at that false 9. There's no Matthew copy. There's no Darryl DK. There's no even Josie Aldo. It's come back to form and I know that sounds crazy, but going back and Tapping into that and be like, you know, always come back from his foot surgery scored a couple goals. He's got three goals in the last four games, et cetera, et cetera. Maybe I can go there in a pitch, so I don't have to go into formation with a false name. But you go with whose federa, who's a playmaker. That was interesting to me. If Josie altidore had been included her key probably would have been the biggest surprise. Who would you have been more surprised to see? Are you more surprised that feder made it? Or would you have been more surprised to see Josie in there? Honestly, beretta because the lack of night. Really? Yeah, I think in a pinch, Josie makes sense. He's only 31 years old. I know a lot. I want to move on from them, but he's still one of the most honestly on his day with U.S. men's national team's toppy goal score. I think you could do far worse. But Daryl digg to me is the one that I would have gone with. Daryl dick is the guy that I would have gone with Seb. Since that shoulder injury, by the way, that he had with the U.S. men's national bank gold cup. He's come back and he's been a regular player for Orlando, a very good player. 6 goals in the last 9 games, I think this is a player that just made sense. And you can go down that I want dynamic players road like you doing with this roster and still have Daryl DK and he gives you that physical presence that physical element about his game, but just thought it was an opportunity missed. Yeah, the other guys, like the other options, I'm not surprised to see them left out for a fedena. Who's relatively hot right now? 8 goals and 8 assists for FC Dallas. But sergeant, he hasn't scored this season. Matthew Hopkins scored a Premier League sorry. Sorry, he hasn't scored in the Premier League yet for nords this season. You got Matthew hobby, hasn't even played 90 minutes yet. He fought who remember got off to that great start for young boys. He's cooled off significantly. So if we're going on form, there's a lot of guys there who are out of form DK is the one exception, hurt. I wonder what it tells us about the overall depth quality of the U.S. number 9 pool, which if I remember correctly on this very show, not that long ago, you were telling me he was better than Mexico's. No, no, no, no. Yes. Yes. No, no, no, you got to relax. You asked about food is more. Let's not go back to this. When it's morning, it got a little pep in who would you rather? Okay. Okay. But clearly here we're seeing that the U.S. number 9 position is not as deep as you would have liked. No, but it's not been as deep as anybody would like. And that's a reality, but Darryl deakins played half the minutes of Major League Soccer 17 games has 9 goals and he's a center forward and half the minutes. Hey, Swede is a very good player in Major League Soccer, but he's a playmaker with less goals. I'm not saying he's at fault here, but he's not the answer to that number 9 situation. And I think Gregor Holter looks at him in a pinch I could play this guy in that false 9 because he did it against Trinidad and had a breakout game lesser quality opponent in Trinidad, a 7 zero win. Greg barrel to roll the dice with Ricardo peppy, it worked. It could work again here is only 20 years old and there is a significant lack of experience here. He's got two call ups in the last two years. And both of his games have been January friendly. So the jump from that and MLS to Concacaf World Cup qualifiers. You got to think that that's a huge leap. A huge leap forward for the United States, no doubt about it, hurt. He's getting Christian Pulisic back into the team and of course we saw him back on the field. He returned to action Tuesday for Chelsea in that one nothing win away against malmo, in Sweden,.

"A not so good time with the U.S. men's national team. To not being taken aside and say, you know what, John, you're a leader of this team. You're the most experienced player I have. What I need for you to do right now is take a step back, sit on the bench, refresh and gather your thoughts. And be there for my team, if and when we need you. No. He goes from not being in the starting lineup to not even being on the call sheet, which blows my mind. If you want to say it's for him with the national team, okay, then why are other players like Mark McKenzie there? Mark McKesson you, by the way, is not played in Belgium, who's got little club experience to a player like John Brooks who has a wealth of experience World Cup experience a World Cup goal who's a supposed leader on this national team. Champions League experience Bundesliga experience at one point the highest transfer fee for an American player in its history. And now you're telling me he can't be part of this roster? It blows my mind. It's form. Well, let's say it's form and hold the same standard to everybody, not just your most experienced players like John Brooks. To your point about form, right? Like he started the last 5 games from Wolfsburg, he's just coming off a full 90 minutes in the champions. A winning 90 minutes in the champion a regular in the Champions League. Yes. There you go. Were they beat Red Bull Salzburg and Brandon arrants and so he's playing well for Wolfsburg, but I do think there has to be something said about those national team performances, right? Because he starts and he plays the full 90 against Canada. Right. And he only plays the first 45 against El Salvador. And then with the injury, he misses the next international window. And if you go over the entirety of the U.S. qualifying run her, wouldn't you say that the 90 minutes against Canada and the first 45 against El Salvador were some of the worst that not necessarily John Brooks played, but that the whole U.S. team has played in this process. So you take him off to complete lists, sebby? I do see this as somewhat consistent from Greg berhalter, because we've seen it at the other positions. We saw Josh sergeant start games. We saw Jordan P fock get big minutes, and then what happened? When they didn't perform, they didn't just get moved to the bench. They got pulled entirely off the team. So I'm asking you as a player. Players with little experience. And I understand where you go. Let me ask you, is there not something to be said for competition? He's creating real competition. Show me the competition. You're gone. Is Mark McKenzie? Mark McKenzie, you didn't have a great game last outing versus Mexico. Who didn't have a great game versus Panama? He actually played 90 minutes for his Panama. Do you remember that? You talk about he talks about, not me. Gregg halter talks about the form. And that's one of the things we saw against Pam Panama. Well, Mark McKenzie was one. Another one was Shaq more. That's why he's no longer here. If we're going to talk about form, you can't just have it to apply. Only and specifically to one of your biggest players. To one of your leaders to one of the players that you can lean on, even when he's not playing to be there for your team to be an asset. This is, no, there's no rhyme or reason. There are other players and we can name legit Reggie cannon who's been injured and he's now on this list. Ariola who's been injured and he's now on this list. You know, even a guy like Christian rodan who's not been having the greatest moments with the Seattle sounders and maybe now the U.S. men's nationally when he's coming to work with qualifying. So you can go down the list and you can find inform or not on a lot of these different players, but he singled out John Brooks, and that to me is crazy. So John Brooks gave a statement about being left off this roster,.

"Like for this roster, you emphasize guys who are playing regularly and playing well with their clubs. How much was that important to you picking this S.W.A.T.? Thank you. Well, I think that was looking back on the Panama game and thinking, okay, maybe we maybe we made some wrong lineup choices based on the form of guys. So part of it was important. I think part of it is also. So Christian, you know, obviously hasn't played. So he's a guy that doesn't meet that criteria, but he's a valuable enough to the team that we want him taking part. You know, I can't say that every player is exactly that same. It's always a combination. And I think it's always a combination of what they've done in the past for us and what they're doing with their teams. All right, her 25 players probably 25 different ways for us to break down this roster. But let's start big picture if you can. And let's keep this quick because we do have a lot to get into on the choices made by Greg berhalter. But from 30,000 feet, is there any big takeaway about the decisions made here? Yeah, how dynamic he wants to be with this group. I look at the roster selection that are players that have a lot of mobility. And that leads me to believe he watched like we all did Canada versus L three and elastic. John Herman's blueprint of how to play against Mexico and beat them physically. In transition, beat them with speed. So he'll be looking for a lot more of that. That's probably why you don't see players like Jordan to his Gregg halter's own words as a player that's probably not that type of player, much more of a 9 type of player. So that's why we're seeing this type of roster. That said, still a lot of surprises here. Real quick, you think that's the right call? Very quickly. You have Alfonso Davies, you got Jonathan David, and Tasha up you can and that's their friend three. You're not gonna have the same friend three, and that midfield is probably a little bit more stability. What you will do against Mexico is probably defend a lot. And you will play in transitions. It's not the worst idea. It's a lot better than trying to out possess the Mexican national team. All right, so I've paddled off a bunch of names. You know, potential snubs. And each of those guys probably has a case to be named the biggest snub, but if you can only pick one or who's your biggest snub out of these 25. John Brooks. Easily. It's without a doubt John Brooks. John Brooks goes from having.

"Can you believe it? It is episode 71 in the short but tense history of this show. Tense history? What do you mean tens history? Spend a lot of fun. 71, I didn't think he would make it past the first week. Wow, fun. Speak for yourself. We do have a lot to get to in this show primarily because we got playoff fever, right all over the place. We got the last week of the regular season in Major League Soccer. We got the last week of the regular season down in Liga. Mackie's. Plus we got the first week of the playoffs in the national women's soccer league. We're gonna be across all of that not just in this edition of football America's, but as always, on the podcast as well. You can download. You can listen, and you can find it in the ESPN FC feed wherever you download your podcast. But there is no other place to start this show than launching the official. Football America's countdown to USA against Mexico, November 12th, in Cincinnati. Now, just 8 days away. Just rivalry that comes up to my mind, just rivalry, a war. Things are flying from the stands. You're ducking for cover, constantly, but it's a great great atmosphere. History. Man, this robbery has been going on for years, even before I was born. I grew up in two of us, which is, you know, about three to 5 miles away from the border town Tijuana in school. It was always the Latinos playing against the non Latinos in soccer. And even then it was a rivalry. And my household, you know, it's all Mexican Mexican culture, and then I step forward on my house and saw American culture so I kind of just have to embrace both of those cultures. You know, you must have a pretty unique perspective on the U.S. Mexico rivalry. When you hear U.S. Mexico and soccer, what goes through your mind? Oh, you know, it's great. Obviously now I play for the U.S. and I always want to be Mexico now. So, you know, but before I'm being honest with you, you know, I always used to work for Mexico just because you know my parents used to go to their use server for Mexico. But then when I started turning like ten, 11 years old and I started going to before the U.S. is because I just mess around with my parents when I was a reality that, you know, I feel like the ones I put on that Jersey, I felt it, you know, I felt that I was going to protect and defend it and played for the Chris. It's a great experience. You never forget there's experiences really. I'm curious as somebody who hasn't been in the U.S. as much. What do you guys tell you about it? Yeah, to tell me, you know, this game is gonna be a dog fight. It's gonna be a test. You're gonna see a lot of fights. You're gonna see a lot of, you know, tough challenges. I only realized after the nation final, that's when I realized, okay, this is exciting. You know, it's something to be proud of, which is why I think as players, it's the greatest honor for us to play in a game like that to play against your rival. Yeah, it's just a hard fought game where it can.

The senate two thousand dollar check must not healed and you say well preacher grandma's not he listen you this money and the preacher says well. It's because he didn't believe hard enough so now you've got to send five thousand dollars right right and so ultimately like you're stuck in this psychology of what if what if what if just because you don't want to feel bad about yourself right. Yeah and that's why like things like buddhism right because a listen. There's there's a lot of dog in that as well right. Yeah for yeah for sure.

"Is they have the sense that everything that we do at christmas existed in saturnalia and even alien and you know the the the the the festival of solan victims in texas. And you'll and all that sort of thing. It's like well not exactly right like all that. The midwinter festival existed christianity. Was like we should do that too. Let's let's add our own thing. We'll play a holiday there. We'll we'll have our own rituals and it's part of a of a great melting pot. That is this sort of fantastic cultural invention right that being christmas but no i completely agree with you and i think that that's the idea. The narrative that every christian holiday is just like some stampeding herd that is destroying a pre existing pagan holiday and replacing. It with jesus is wrong. It's wrong but it but let's have that conversation because there's a lot more to it than just oh. We decided that december twenty fifth was going to be a day that we celebrate. And it's like did you know seems like a lot of people have been celebrating staff giving each other presents and eating tons of food and getting wasted over this time for a long time. That's the thing is belief systems evolve so quickly in all the time and in human lifespan. Right so even something one hundred years ago. You'd have no idea and i remember you guys. I think have been on your first episode. Actually were kind of briefly talking about fundamentalism and the This idea of taking the bible literally as you everything being one hundred percent true to the word is is so recent right and then hundred and fifty years and then like really cemented after the What was the the evolution. The monkey scopes trial right That's when it really became cemented because you had a lot of The revivalist movement going around and they became very fundamentalist and through that push kind of got what became of angeles for example but but this very literal interpretation of things. So yeah yeah. It's funny sort of getting back to again where we where we started here. Is that a lot of that. The the the fundamentalist drive whether it's an islam or judaism christianity or wherever it is is still also kinda part of that drive. It's that idea of. I just want someone to tell me. It's going to be okay. And if if i just believe that every word of this is true and every piece of counterfactual evidence is is not. I feel better. Because like i don't ever have to worry about anything coming in and destroying this little bubble. I've created a lot of ways. Fundamentalism is turning the bible into the messiah right. And it's that same instinct. It's that same impulse. Except you're just doing it for this book. Right and wrapping yourself up in it and clinging to it and never letting go. Yeah i did. I did this series on epistemology kind of concurrent with the episode that nazism and you know one thing that's kind of the the really interesting psychology of this This this looking to a savior we're gonna coined the word okay. We're gonna call it the cycle complex. I've already the senate trademark john. I twenty twenty okay. So but but the psychology behind it right because people don't want to feel responsible for their crappy lot in life right and so if you find a savior and it doesn't go right right like the jesus never comes or the the aliens never come and take you or you know you send them a five thousand dollar check and you know you don't win the lottery the next day if that goes wrong. It's not your fault..

"But during this time i mean he was basically a schizophrenic and through his experiences he he realized. Okay well god somewhere around here so you know. But he's not totally dead but it feels like even though the states is is a really odd example of the way this kind of thing develops because the country's founded on this very puritan belief system and and we kind of get away from that for a while and out of all the developed countries. The united states is still the most religious right and not necessarily spiritual just the most religious. And if you look at europe. I mean europe is mostly secular right. Of course there's still churches and things like that but the the way that the society is run is mostly secular whereas here in the us. You still see a lot of kind of crossover between spirituality and politics and culture society cetera. And that's kind of a weird place to be for a hyper industrial society. And you're right. I think that's something that we don't take into account because you know the as we industrialized and we get to a place where we're kind of like post industrialization. Right and now there's talk of this fourth industrial revolution all the stuff and what that entails and terms of technology. But how does this can of jive with people's minds because oftentimes society sort of evolves much faster than our psychology does and in many regards. Our psychology is still. You know two thousand and three thousand years ago and here we are you know with with helicopters spaceships going to mars. And i think that's definitely something that needs to be explored a little bit more because then you get things like trumpism you have. You have folks that arise all the time and heaven's gate was kind of one of the first ones but there's all sorts of colds. Nowadays that few people talk about unless you're like in ufo twitter and and that's something to think about just how how we have to find this messiah figure in in the context that we live in regardless of whether we are religious or not well..

The Biggest Bubble in World History?

The Biggest Bubble in World History?

"The rant. This week is continuation of last week. Okay what i've done here is. I've added kind of another chapter to the story story so last week. I talked to you about the way that wall street turns conservative investment vehicles into pure toxic waste is what i'm calling colleague and i mentioned two examples right. The investment trusts starting in the late nineteenth century ending in the nineteen twenty nine crash and the u._s. thirty year mortgage around the time of the financial crisis. You know maybe from around two thousand two through just say two thousand nine this week. I wanna talk a little bit about mutual funds in that same light okay and the story begins with something called the prudent prudent man ruling of eighteen thirty. We're getting in the weeds here folks. There's a lot of material here all right so the prudent man fiduciary the tradition in american well in american law and in american finance goes back couple of hundred years before the nineteen sixties when when and mutual funds kind of blew up in the way that i'm about to describe but there was this one particular decision in eighteen thirty in a case called harvard college versus amory sorry you can google that and and learn the details of that amac and talk about just mention the a quote from the decision that was made at that time so so here's the quote from a decision which outlined the prudent man rule okay so these are the words of judge samuel putnam in eighteen eighteen thirty quote all that can be required of a trustee is that he shall conduct himself faithfully and exercise a sound discretion and he is to observe how men of prudence discretion and intelligence manage their own affairs not in regard to speculation but in regard to the permanent ah position of their funds considering the probable income as well as the probable safety of the capital to be invested and quote. That's a lot of that's a lot of stuff there but the salient points are prudence discretion intelligence probable income probable safety of the capital title so this is what's known as the prudent man rule it still alive today though you'd probably be hard pressed to find very many true practitioners. The decision was made in a boston court. Okay it became the ruling principle of among others a whole class of money managers that will called the yankee trustees they were the living essence of the prudent man rule and they viewed the avoidance of losses as more important than achieving leaving gains right very conservative so in boston almost one hundred years after the prudent man ruling the first open ended mutual fund was created in nineteen twenty four and it was very much a product of the trustee culture right people who took care of trusts and were these the yankee trustees who used the man ruin invested very conservatively it was called the massachusetts investors trust and it was different because it didn't have a fixed the number of shares like all the funds before it it's sold shares to the public based on demand and investors could sell them right back to the company at whatever the current price was right. That's an open and mutual fund as we know today so as a product of the boston prudent man culture it was so conservatively run it came out in nineteen twenty four right just when the twenties were kinda getting getting cooking and it was seen as being out of step with the times sort of like warren buffett in nineteen ninety nine fine and you know it it did all kinds of things issued detailed quarterly reports listing all of its holdings and transactions and costs that was the exact opposite visit policy of at that time the the new investment trusts of the era which refused tell investors what was in them in turn out as we said last week to be toxic waste okay now you fast forward a little bit you go nineteen forty-three edward crosby johnson. The second is a lawyer who takes over the fidelity fund and fidelity right. The company knows fidelity. It's got like two and a half trillion of assets under management today well. He took over this boston. Mutual fund operation called fidelity fidelity at the time. They managed three million bucks. It was hardly anything that was even a small amount of that time in nineteen forty three now in his book the gogo years author author john brooks noted of that event quote the man who turned the fidelity organization over to him refuse to take nickel for it in keeping with the traditional boston austin concept of a trusteeship as a sacred charge rather than a vested interest to be bought and sold and quote brooks looks continued the notion of a mutual fund as a trust was deeply ingrained in state street sort of like wall street and boston deeply ingrained in stay street st st st at that time and would remain so until about nineteen fifty five in quote so the laws governing mutual funds and trust were different but until the the mid fifties according to brooks mutual funds felt like trusts right it wasn't seen as an opportunity to get rich speculating with other people's money far from it. It was a sacred charge so but johnson you know eventually. He left those old conservative ways behind. It's a necessary step in solving the toxic waste. He was a fan of jesse. Livermore johnson love jesse livermore. That's what got him interested in. The stock market to begin with of course livermore was the famous trader who made lost i i if i'm not mistaken for fortune speculating on stocks you know including in the twenties and eventually shot himself in the head nineteen forty in the cloakroom grooming sherry netherlands hotel in new york so with his one transaction of taking over the fidelity fund the old conservative way of the yankee trustee was kinda taken out back and shot in the head johnson grew the business by trading stocks okay now the dow rose about one hundred and fifty percent between nineteen forty-three the year he took over and nineteen fifty two the year johnson met a man named gerald cy who's a chinese fellow his last name aside t._s._a. Sign was born in shanghai china in nineteen. Twenty eight came to the u._s. In nineteen forty seven to go to college got a bachelor master's degree from boston in university and stuck around so these guys met nineteen fifty two and they were both inclined more towards market timing and rapid-fire trading in large positions positions you know no diversification long-term view neither had a trace of the prudent man in him johnson. Let size start his own fund in nineteen fifty seven the fidelity capital fund. I'm sorry i left outside went to work for johnson when they met okay and he started his own fund in nineteen fifty seven the fidelity eddie capital fund from nineteen fifty eight to nineteen sixty five the fund return two hundred ninety six percent according to john moguls forward to a book called super money by adam smith breath aka george goodman good book. You should read those those adam smith books along the way si- had to deal with the crash nineteen sixty two that year the dow jones average fell twenty seven percent and most of the downward move which was really from kind of january first until june twenty six of that year most of that downward and move happened in two months between april twenty fourth june twenty six with a drop of twenty two and a half percent so is short and sharp and kind of brutal john brooks. It's not how well the mutual fund industry weathered the storm quote the great rising giant of american finance the mutual fund industry had come out with honors cash chevy still conservatively managed in the prudent fiduciary tradition the funds had bought unbalancing the falling market of monday and had sold on balance and the rising market of thursday day thus besides protecting their shareholders from excessive risk. They had perhaps actually done something to stabilize the market and quote. Apparently there's one particularly if you look at the chart of that time there's one particular week those pretty brutal right around the time it bottomed out and i think that's what he's talking about. Their size fidelity capital fund was down by may of that year but he recovered and the fun rose sixty eight percent in the last three months of the year okay so a few years later nineteen sixty five big year for gerald outside that year has fun was up almost fifty percent of course the turnover one hundred twenty percent right so turnover of one hundred percent means. You held everything for a year. Basically like you sold every share you bought that year so he sold one hundred twenty percent implies and even shorter period right so one hundred percent turnover would be if you bought on january first sold on december thirty first every share and this one hundred twenty percent is like i don't i don't know maybe he sold it all by by november. Let's just say but really what what happened was. He's just constantly turning over daily by then by nineteen nineteen sixty-five gerald saone twenty percent of fidelity instead of picking is his successor to run fidelity et johnson picked his son ned johnson then who actually was a pretty good stock quicker to write in a bull market. Everybody looks good. Silence fidelity immediately started his own fund called the manhattan fund. It started with around two hundred forty seven million in assets the quote the biggest offering an investment company history end quote according to the new york times by mid sixty st eight. It had five hundred sixty million bucks in it. The fun didn't do so well that year though and si- sold his company to c._n._a. Financial corporation regime for thirty million. He got out of the top pretty smart a year later. It fell ninety percent that was closed <hes> so by december thirty thirty one thousand nine hundred seventy four near the bottom of brutal bear market. The manhattan fund had these single worst eight year track record of any existing fund at the time accumulative would've loss of seventy percent of all the capital that had gone into it while manhattan fund wasn't the only one there were other kind of gogo funds of the year. I remember one called. The enterprise fund was up like six hundred percent at the top and down by more than half or so at the bottom but cy was the most famous money manager of time he was really the first kind of celebrity financial major financial guy he would later lie to an institutional investor magazine interviewer when he said quote we had one bad year in nineteen sixty eight night been killed in the press ever since. I don't think it's fair dr and quote one bad year. How about the worst eight years ever at that time size gruden end there. He later worked for an insurance company that bought american can a tin can manufacturer and he turned that business into a financial services company called primerica. You may have heard of it primerica which he sold to a guy named sanford weill in nineteen eighty eight. It's the company that became came city group okay short short story there from primerica to citi group so you know size fingerprints are still on american finance today so that's the short version of how ed johnson and even more so gerald cy turn mutual funds you know this thing born out of the conservative a bit of boston yankee trustee culture into they turned it into toxic wastes into these rapid fire trading vehicles in in in the nineteen fifties and sixties so mutual funds began life in america as a conservatively managed sacred dacre charge of the prudent man the yankee trustee and they ended up as the new gogo mutual funds of gerald site irritating huge positions in highly speculative stocks trading in and out quickly and size manhattan fund was just the most famous and most disastrous example but there there were others said and you know they took these huge positions they weren't diversified and the brokers hated it but they couldn't not do it. Because <hes> you know cy was a big deal. He was the biggest thing in finance at that time that two hundred and forty seven million deal right that was the biggest deal is like fifteen percent of all the offerings that year in mutual fund so you know it was the brokers had to deal with them. They had to play along with these huge positions that he was taking even though they didn't like it because it looked dangerous to them <hes> and trade in out very quickly. It's just like the investment trust of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and it's just like what they did into the thirty year mortgage with mortgage-backed securities and c._d._o.'s in the housing bubbles it housing bubble singular really have one of those wall street takes these conservative vehicles and turns them into toxic waste. Every year is a little bit different. Every bubble has its own characteristics characteristics and course today. What are we seeing today the very biggest bubble in the history of the world the global bond bubble label featuring at last count according to data compiled on bloomberg. They keep track of it. If you have bloomberg you can you can log in and get the latest chart art of the world's negative yielding debt. It's over sixteen trillion about sixteen point four trillion according to bloomberg it's insane. It can't end well. These things things never ever ever do the thing that worries me about this and of course i have to give credit where it's due wall street had less to do with this than central bank central banks did this when this on them of course they're clearly taking a page. I don't know did wall street. Take a page from them. Wall street was around before central banks right so <hes> at least before the federal reserve's early so i think we we have to say that <hes> the central banks take a page from wall street and turned you know the conservative -servative thing most of the negative yielding data sovereign debt and they've turned it into toxic waste guaranteed to lose you money if you hold it to maturity pretty insane insane. That's the rant for this week if you liked it or didn't like it or have a question or a comment right into feedback back at investor our dot com.
