Get the money out now

"We didn't get any relief. Bill from the congress and i i want i want to tell me why i wish i knew. I mean honestly. There's been this ongoing stalemate for months and months and months and the need the scale of the need for a bill is just demonstrable at this point right if you look at the numbers for various measures of economic hardship things like hunger or housing insecurity on employment They're huge so it's not as if congress doesn't know that there's a huge amount of need urgent need for them to act particularly given the fact that something like two dozen additional programs that have been holding families together are about to expire around christmas. But there seems to be this logjam over what should actually go into the bill and you know what what tools would be acceptable to help these families and businesses for that matter sue journalists. Take that a little bit farther right. We've got a piece coming up from kimberly adams here in a minute on liability protections which mitch mcconnell wants the state the democrats want state and city Funding to help them through the squeeze Is it possible. Catherine says they can't not know. And i'm going to throw you the same question D- do they really not know. I don't know the answer to that is impossible. It's impossible to now. I mean. I think i think what's really interesting in what is going to continue to be. The core issue is that lawmakers on both sides recognize that there is a massive new. Do something you know. There's there's fairly broad consensus that. They need to come to an agreement that they need to do before christmas. That we can't just you know sort of any year in not not come up with a solution in. I think that's why it's so surprising. And so interesting that it's taken so long to get there and it does seem like it's really boiling under these two issues at this point that's the whole distance between them But you know these two issues could be enough to scupper it. do you think katherine that. It's possible that they go home for christmas. And nothing is done and they say know what biden's coming in in january and let the new congress in the new administration figure it out. Unfortunately i think it is. I think it's a terrible failure of leadership. If that happens. I mean it's been an unforgivable failure of leadership that they haven't come to some sort of deal by now But the idea that in the days after christmas you'll have tons of people who get evicted. Who lose their Their unemployment benefits who suddenly have to start paying their student loan bills again have to pay their their mortgage payments again. Things that were in forbearance I think that would be a terrible terrible outcome. But i would not. I would not put it beyond congress for that to happen. Unfortunately because again it's been months at this point and they don't seem to have Endured any sort of political retribution. For not acting and so. What's to keep them from doing that soon. I hope that they act. But i'm very concerned that they won't do. You know a quick turn to the federal reserve here as we talked about perhaps in this segment last time you were on but definitely on the program at some point in the last couple of weeks. treasury six year mnuchin As we all know has decided that the for some of the federal reserve beginning programs under the care act ought to end it. It's worth pointing out that. While they were undersubscribed they did add some stability here. And i think it's also worth pointing out that they were undersubscribed. bydesign right. They were they were created on terms. That were meant to be extra. And some of them were created to work in exactly the kind of environment that we're about to go into a situation in which things are getting worse credit availability. Use may be getting a little bit worse as a result and you know companies and municipalities need. Need that backup auction in our sort of taking away right right as it may be needed. So i'm gonna. I'm gonna go sooner than i anticipated to. The old standby On a friday on this program. What is jay. Powell thinking genus. Malik you get to go first. The fed meets next week. The chairman will a conference and there will be all kinds of questions but in in five words or less. What do we think is going through his mind right now. Going to get worse before it gets better. He told me that's like nine. But okay all right. i'll buy that catherine. What do you think. Get the money out. Now about it Well look it's the mantra. I think of a lot of economists at this point. Other economic policymakers powell among other federal reserve officials have said as much not in those exact not in that five word phrasing but that they want more fiscal relief. That the ball is really in congress's court at this point to get something done that. The fed will continue to use whatever tools it has available. Whatever their usual You know boilerplate his on that but really they need help from congress

It's a lot harder to get out the vote during a pandemic

"They say meet the voters where they are especially if they're your friends on the Internet from American public media, this is marketplace tech I'm molly would. It's a lot harder to get out the vote. During a pandemic political strategist and organizers are trying to buy new ways to reach voters and potential voters, research shows that usually in person interactions are the most effective technique, but now organizers are turning to an old idea. A turnout captain, a local volunteer who whips up voting interest, but combined with targeted data and sometimes APPs, and they're finding that that combination can really work marketplace's Kimberly Adams covers money and politics and did some reporting on this for us. Things like knocking on the doors of strangers to be in their face about a candidate does not work in a pandemic, and there seems to be a shift among sort of the political strategists and the get out the vote folks to really look at something that's called relational organizing, and I spoke with her thick Balasubramaniam. He's at Howard. University works a lot with data and with campaigns on this idea of relational organizing and. And here's how he explains it. Essentially you make a list of your family members, friends and neighbors, and because of research we know that the Messenger really really matters way more effective than TV digital or radio is when you hear a pitch straight from someone that you'd know and trust, and that makes these things a lot more effective according to the research. We've seen so far right. Do apps like this exist now? Sort of this APP called turnout nation. The founder Mark Mullen was telling me that with this APP. Basically, it doesn't necessarily push people to you, but you just say hey I want to get more people out to vote. Here are ten of my friends and family that I am committing to help them get registered and help them turn out to vote, and whereas a traditional campaign method of saying, knocking on the doors of strangers can boost turn out by like two percent. Their method boosted turn out by about thirteen percent. And why is that because it's more personal? Not just because it's more personal, but with turn out nation for example and a lot of the ways that this sort of get out the vote tech is being deployed for relational organizing much of it is not associated with a particular campaign. Most up vote efforts are run by candidate campaign specifically they tend to sort of be focused on a huge amount of stranger to stranger contact, and the last maybe month or three weeks before the election, but there are a lot of people. People who want to increase turnout and do other things to support American democracy year round and A. They don't necessarily want to do it in the service of this or that candidate and they only want to do it just before before Elections Right so folks like Mullen who work on this say that not only are volunteers more likely to get involved when you strip out the politics, but they also say that people respond better as well when you're just saying. Hey, you should vote. To Hey, you should vote for this particular candidate so obviously like this is a unique moment because of the pandemic, but it sounds like if it's that effective, and if you know, events may become less popular or good old fashioned door. Knocking becomes less popular at. The groundwork for a different type of digital campaigning in the future I think there's going to have to be a different type of digital campaigning. Now you can imagine some hesitancy by campaigns to us. Sort of this turnout captain model that that Molin is highlighting because they don't necessarily want everyone to turn out to vote. They want the people who were going to vote for their candidate to turn out to vote and the individual campaigns are scrambling because our entire campaign infrastructure is built on sort of these face to face interaction. A lot of that is just out the window.

"Conversation that we're having in this country right now about systemic economic racism. Turns today on three words, De Fund, the police. In Minneapolis where George Floyd was killed by police. A Super Majority of the city council there says it wants to dismantle its police force, and in part because that defined the police has become kind of a catch phrase for a really complicated problem, so marketplace's Kimberly.

Chant Christy Lopez is co director of the innovative policing program at Georgetown Law and used to work at the Department of Justice Investigating police departments. She says when people talk about defunding police. It doesn't mean that you route budgets for public safety. It may mean that you decrease. Get rid of the police department per se, but you might still have something like an office of public safety. So, what would it do? Ron Surpass spent thirty years in law.

Powell warns of lasting damage without more aid

"A brief sampling. If I might of some of the choices phrases from Fed chair j Powell's well what was it a Webinar an online Q. and A. I guess after a quick set of remarks today sponsored by the Peterson Institute. Anyway here are some of the relevant things. The Chairman of the Federal Reserve had to say about this economy this morning. He said there's a possibility that there could be lasting damage. That things are both highly uncertain and they pose significant downside risks and that fiscal policy makers congress. That is although they've done a lot need to do. More additional fiscal support could be costly but worth it if it helps avoid long-term damage and leaves us with a stronger recovery. This trade off is one for our elected. Representatives who wield powers of taxation spending now to be fair fed chairs for years. Have been saying the same thing. Ben by Kimberly. Can I interject here for a minute? Kimberly Adams you are more than welcome to interject. Welcome to the program by the way thank you thank you so I mean you know I cover Washington and to be fair. Congress has done a lot of things in response to the Cova nineteen pandemic. We've had multiple rounds of stimulus and as we saw from house. Democrats just yesterday. They're working on another round. Well Yeah but two. Things Number One The the House Democrats bill probably going nowhere. Because Mitch McConnell the leader in the Senate has as much said so number two this economy as you know is defending strating in real time and yet here we have Congress con uh going back and forth although that is a great deployment of that. Sat word all pieces of legislation are originally when they come out of such a bitterly divided Congress going to be a wishlist to some extent but we should put this in a bit of context because the first couple of rounds of stimulus really were. Oh my good Lord. What are we going to do? Throw everything at this. Let's just try to again. Stop the economy from off a cliff but we also don't know how well what we've done already is working and house speaker. Nancy Pelosi basically said that this morning on MSNBC look. We're still waiting on data to see how this works and Mitch. Mcconnell has also said look we need to wait and see how the opening goes. How what we've already put out. There works before we can spend any more money on this now at the same time. The longer we wait the more the economy suffers. But there is sort of a wait-and-see moment we seem to be in right now. Okay Fair enough. Do you think before we get back to our regularly. Scheduled programing here DEA. Think there's going to be another bill I mean. Is there any doubt about that? Oh yeah there has to be more and I think what we heard from. Fed Chair Powell. Today is even more evidence of that and everybody knows there has to be more which means there is quite the lobbying scramble happening here in Washington because everybody wants a piece of it Kimberly Adams our Washington correspondent more from her in the program.

Political advertising during COVID-19 is the calm before the storm

"The Kobe. Nineteen pandemic has decimated digital advertising. But that may actually be good. I political campaigns online is way cheaper right now and that makes it easier for candidates to get in front of voters many of whom are a captive audience. While working from home that could give a boost to independent candidates but it could also mean that online ads are way more accessible to bad actors looking to spread misinformation for right. Now though according to marketplace's Kimberly Adams our political reporter in Washington. No one's really running any ads at all. It is usual at this time in a campaign for political ads to kind of drop off but almost no one has been running any ads. Everyone's worried that because all anyone wants to consume online is either things that make you happy or things related to Co vid. There's not really much return on investment. Even if you do take advantage of these cheaper ad prices to run a political ad. Who does that end up benefiting if anybody in the short term? I mean it sounds like that could be a big boost to incumbents absolutely because fundraising is so hard in this environment. Anybody who's trying to sort of get into a race or maybe relatively unknown or is God. Help them trying to get in media attention environment. This makes it really really challenging so their campaigns and even advocacy groups that maybe wanted to do a ballot initiative are having to balance out whether or not they want to take advantage of these cheap digital ad prices or if they want to just wait and hope that things open back up again and then maybe try to run ads later. That said I was speaking with Tim. Lamb of limb consulting services. He's a works with a lot of Democratic candidates in groups here in DC and he was saying well if there ends up being a second wave of infections as many are predicting in the fall. That's sort of at the peak of when you would have those ads. So what do we do then But even though candidates might not be buying a lot of digital advertising right now for the moment is in digital kind of the only game in town right and in many ways. The lockdown is freeing up more resources for these campaigns to spend on digital and so instead they're investing that money in digital outreach whether that be online phone banking or doing polls because people are stuck at home and they're going to answer the phone or developing new digital ads and working on their targeting strategies. So that money is going to be spent. It just won't be spent in the ways that it usually is right and so we may find that what we end up with is a supernatural campaign right if you got tired of seeing political ads during the primary if this really gets going and there is an opening for political advertising. It's GonNa be a lot and then there is also this question of digital advertising and its effect on misinformation and so. I wonder if it's cheaper. A lot of people are online consuming information. Does that make us more susceptible to messaging meant to polarize us? Does it make disinformation that much more accessible to parties? Who would want to do harm in any case if you make it cheaper for bad actors to get their message in front of people of course it increases the risk that that misinformation is going to spread further and faster and I think that's why you're seeing sort of an increase crackdown by these social media sites and People who are really active in this area about consumer awareness of this issue and so as we get further along into the campaign you can absolutely imagine that people are going to exploit the strain that all of these systems are under to get messages out there that are either untrue or at least stretching the truth quite a bit. That's marketplace's Kimberly Adams in Washington. Dc Forbes has a piece this week noting that this had already been kind of strange year for political advertising since the winter saw huge amounts of spending especially by Michael Bloomberg so between the pandemic and expected spring drop spending overall not just online peaked at twenty one point five million dollars a week just before Super Tuesday and then dropped to around five million dollars a week by the end of April.

What weighs down GDP?

"Not for the first time I am on this program. We take our lead from our early rising colleagues on the marketplace morning report. The News News there. The News context here and this morning early with the markets bouncing back. After the agenda of yesterday it went like this well the problem is the market's been doing an awful lot better than the fundamentals. That's David David Kelly a morning report regular also the chief global strategist at J.P. Morgan funds talking to David Brancaccio. This morning say more. Though would you Mitch Kelly about those fundamentals. It's going to get a GDP number tomorrow over two percent. And why is that. Just two percent you know between the federal government of the Federal Reserve. Got All the stimulus being poured into the economy. And it's not actually helping economy grow that's tossed so we got tears in Clare on the phone. She's a professor of economics at George Washington University to break things down a little before us one of the big things that we were watching was the role of the tax cuts and jobs act. Also the Fed of course keeping interest rates low. So that means that we're looking at savers. Trying to find a place to put their money to earn some income and that pushes more more money towards the stock market which gets us to it does look like a stock market and the real economy are potentially out of line. Aw but there is more to the fundamentals than just GDP at the same time if we look at other figures such as what's been going on in the labor market there is that fifty year low unemployment. Of course things are still remarkably good particularly when we think about how long this expansion has lasted. Don't zone on eleven years now which helps explain why people are getting jittery. When unforeseen stuff happens that corona virus really being the the driver of of that tumble and that people are worried that that might affect the Chinese economy that was yesterday? The Corona virus in the markets today traders apparently decided the corona virus. Isn't that big a deal but look fundamentally this whole thing is all about confidence right. How much consumers? which as we've been telling you for years now are the single biggest driver of this economy? How much they think things are going to be okay so to that end a little compare and contrast now we learned today from the Commerce Department that orders for durable goods big expensive things postal last couple of years? We learned those orders were up in December so far so good but there is a certain line-item in that report that we pay attention to capital capital goods equipment that businesses by to produce more stuff orders for those dropped which is not a good look for business investment consumer confidence though how we all feel about the economy. We learned that today improved more than expected so the essay question goes like this. Why do you businesses seem to be skeptical about the economy while consumers think things are maybe not so bad? Marketplace's Kimberly Adams got the assignment. Consumers are feeling better about the economy because after a long recovery since the recession Josh Gibbons at the Economic Policy Institute says most people they have really beaten beaten down expectations in. So if you look over the past year unemployment's pretty low. Wages are doing not great but okay. Maybe they're like this is as good as it's been for a while but business investment has been slowing for months now and economists like to pay close attention to those numbers because weak business investment. Eventually the ripples through the rest of the economy in so if you're trying to predict whether or not say a recession is coming. Durable goods will sometimes sort of go down more quickly than other parts and be a better forecasting instrument because business investments in durable goods are a reflection of companies own forecasts. Alison Schrager is a senior. A fellow at the Manhattan institute she says businesses are looking at the economy. Five ten twenty years from now as opposed to consumers are really experiencing Very strong economy and their outlook is appreciably shorter also when businesses invest are also often now more more thinking about global markets not just domestic markets markets and with the trade war far from over and risks from climate change. The outlook for the global economy is a bit uncertain just now in in Washington. I'm Kimberly Adams for Marketplace

What we talk about when we talk about jobs

"We introduced you earlier. This week to a group called the Institute for Supply Management Management IFM for short literally people who do all things supply chain for a living we were talking about their manufacturing index how busy American manufacturing and factories these are not all that busy and getting less so it turns out was the macro economically troubling upshot today. It's their service sector survey. We want to talk about the non-manufacturing manufacturing side of this economy still growing but at a much slower pace than anybody had thought so to get us going on this Thursday marketplace's Marielle Sagarra has the service service sector primer accountants lawyers Baristas Uber Drivers math tutors. What are they all have in common their part of the services sector and radio reporters quarters? I'm a creator. I'm out here toiling away cranking out radio pieces but apparently I'm in the services sector to produce a good or a structure. You're right you produce service so that's the difference that's Gad Lebanon Chief Economist for North America at the Conference Board also a service sector the job if you make car parts you're in manufacturing. If you're a farmer you're in agriculture but as a rule of thumb if you don't produce a physical thing you're part of the services sector of the economy about eighty percent of American workers fall into this category it wasn't always this way one hundred years ago the majority of Workers Hello Greek culture or manufacturing and now those with Sharon significantly and that's how it usually goes Danny Bachman the US second omic forecaster at Deloitte says as a country's economy develops it tends to shift towards services one reason that manufacturing become more more productive. There's better technology and that makes a lot of manufacturing jobs obsolete. We just need fewer people to produce the same amount of manufactured goods up by the way the exact same thing happened with agriculture. Meanwhile as people who live in this developing economy get wealthier they start to demand more services like banking king in healthcare. Now the services sector is not an island when there's a downturn in manufacturing say workers an auto factory get laid off. They may be less likely to spend money on services like restaurants and travel. I'm Maryelle Sagarra for marketplace so continuing with the theme here that is in its manufacturing services services indexes Kimberly Adams story for us yesterday about what seemed like as of yesterday the possibility that we're just in for a long slow period of economic economic met that a recession might just never come. It'll just be slow but perhaps we were too hasty because maybe what's happening. Is that the slow hello is speeding up. Marketplace's Sabrina sure explains the Institute for Supply Management in their survey. They ask companies questions including just basic stuff a flight. How's business best at the moment. Eric Harrison is CEO of the Jay Renee Group an importer and wholesaler of shoes which puts him in one of the sectors actors covered by ISM's non-manufacturing index. He is worried his business is going to get hammered by the next round of tariffs so he's not investing in new technology not hiring new people as much as he normally would just trying to play closer to the best which on Portuguese were a lot of our customers are doing as well so it has kind of ripple effect. That's the story behind the numbers I assume survey of non-manufacturers was the weakest in two years a common theme and the comments businesses are worried about trade and that's been true for manufacturers for a while the big takeaway here is that it is not just them anymore. Sam Coffin is a senior economist at UBS looks as if from today's Today's data that the manufacturing weaknesses spreading into the rest of the economy take for example accommodation and food services hotels big importers of furniture furniture. That's tariff. This is Anthony Nevis. He helps run. ISM's non-manufacturing survey and there's food products that they're starting to see increases on stuff coming in from MM. China higher priced imports could seep into more of the economy. Ian Shepherdson is chief economist at Pantheon macroeconomics will probably have good to go up which retailers but it also hurts everybody else who's selling things you can see him is because people are less cash to spend on discretionary services like entertainment and leisure activity so so it seems to be scaring everyone for now. It's possible that the US economy might just be slowing down to a creep but these numbers are assigned that maybe it is worse than that in New York. I'm sure for

New Budget Deal Is A Disaster

"To those trying to rain in in government spending this budget deal is kind of a disaster relatively little of the new money is offset by cuts in other areas and it cancels out budget caps that were supposed to hold federal spending and check the fiscal hawks have flown away and there's not even any semblance of fiscal responsibility left in Washington remain Abacha's with the Heritage Foundation. She says the budget caps put in place during the Obama years put pressure on lawmakers to keep spending down by offsetting getting some increases with cuts elsewhere but since president trump came into office there has been very little attempt made at actually paying for these budget deals now. It's a given Congress will keep raising the debt limit to accommodate higher spending bill gail at the Brookings Institution says this deal was never going to fix the debt but it seems to me this is just not the right venue to be going after the longterm fiscal problem gail points out the budget only covers a small portion of government spending which doesn't include big ticket items like social security or interest on the debt Seth Hamlin at the Center for American progress argues budget cuts are only one side of the equation I would argue that the biggest cause of the deficits that we have now and the biggest driver of the deficits over the long term is just the inadequate amounts of revenue that we raise Hanlin points to the revenue loss from the G._O._p.. Tax cuts with seemingly few consequences sequences for unlimited spending and election coming up. It's pretty easy for Congress to just keep writing checks in Washington.

Mnuchin: Negotiators Agree on Core Elements of Budget Deal

"We begin today with an eye on the calendar the soon to be fiscal year end calendar of the government of the United States of America. It's always an uncertain time as regular listeners to this program will know Congress and the White House having a history as they do regardless of which party is in power aware of not always seeing things the same way when it comes to the budget but we are told by somebody who should know Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin by name that he has basically come to terms on a budget deal with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi but the term budget deal is doing more work than usual this year for more on that. We've got marketplace's Kimberly. Adams live on the phone from Washington. Hey Kimberly. Hey all right. There is a lot packed into budget deal this year. Help me out okay two things in particular number one is raising the debt limit. If you'll remember the debt ceiling expired in March and the Treasury Department has been using extraordinary measures as they call it to keep paying the bills since then so they we need a deal to raise it either in the short term or long term or maybe even just halt the debt limit altogether tied in with that is a deal to raise the budget caps those limits on spending bills that need to pass later this year if they don't lift those budget caps we're looking at ten percent across the board cuts on defense and nondefense spending. Nobody wants that. There are those who will remember the phrase sequester. That's what you're talking about right. Yes again. Nobody nobody wants that got it okay so <hes> <hes> back to the to the topic at hand here. We've got a two issues both dealing with government spending <hes> why are they being bundled as opposed to dealt with separately so this will help both of them get done ahead of some crucial official deadlines. We're probably going to lose the ability to use those extraordinary measures to keep paying the bills sometime in September maybe October and we need an agreement on those budget caps now so that Congress can pass those spending bills when the fiscal a year ends on September thirtieth and it's also worth noting that Congress has never failed to raise the debt limit even with all of the hubbub that we hear all the time around it but we have had several government shutdowns because they didn't pass <unk> spending bills so we're kind of pairing a must must must pass bill with a really need to pass bill the theory being you can shut down the government for a month and it's terrible terrible terrible for a lot of people but <hes> blow in the debt limit would be terrible globally is that that's the deal yeah because basically the no entrust the U._S. government loan the money ever again <hes> forecast for me spit ball if you will <hes> where we're going with this thing is going to happen. What's the what well this morning like you mentioned treasury? Secretary Mnuchin said they'd agreed agreed on some top line numbers. He's been the point person negotiating this with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Pelosi said she wants a deal before Congress leaves for the August recess so that only leaves a few days to hammer out all these deals and there are still some sticking points. It's like whether or not some of this new spending will be offset by cuts elsewhere plus of course president trump has to sign off on all this and has the White House said where the president stands by the way not really. They're pretty much leaving it to the Treasury Department right right now but we'll see kimberly. Adams in what I understand is a sweltering Washington D._C.. Thanks Kimberly.

"This is marketplace. I'm Kimberly Adams jobs at distribution centers. Those mega go warehouses used by e commerce companies have a certain reputation that the hours are long and the jobs are demanding but lately there are some warehouse designers that want to change that reputation by making the warehouse look look a little different adding amenities like coffee shops gyms and so on and there's a reason why Keiko Morris wrote about it for the Wall Street Journal Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me so let's start out by describing what today's mega distribution centers look like. Can you paint a picture for me. Today's distribution center is a pretty sophisticated production floor but it's housed in sort of a more <hes> I would call it utilitarian structure right right for walls roof. Maybe the front office has windows. That's what we've got today. So it's not exactly the kind of place where you might find a gym more Ping Pong tables in the REC room. No so what I did in this story I always talking to developers and started to notice that there is a small but growing number of developers who were adding amenities cities that I wish I would have had my office in in your story you described plans to make one Atlanta warehouse. That would have an employee soccer field and other things. Do you WanNa tell me about that. One in particular yes that was kind of the property that had the most amenities and was kind of the most surprising. It's a property where ace owes <hes> a U._k.. Online retailer has created a one million square foot warehouse the house and they have everything from soccer pitch. They had a temporary pop up space where they brought in a nail salon barbershop. They've got a I guess it would be sort of a canteen eighteen where they've got all sorts of food stations. You really don't see that <hes> oftentimes the place where workers eat you might have a couple of vending machines. One is probably broken and you've got like a card table and aluminum chairs. This was like a warehouse with amenities on steroids. So why would companies add these things what's the strategy here. Basically you've got these folks competing for Labor and you've also got online shopping continuing to expand and you've got a pretty competitive tight labor market are these the kinds of changes that workers in these distribution centers actually want I mean what were you hearing from them. When I called and talked to <hes> worker <unk> advocates and talked to a few workers themselves they were actually surprised to hear of these warehouses and they said sure we we'd like these amenities but really the vast majority of warehouses? They don't look like the warehouses that I highlighted in my story. I spoke to one worker who basically said. I don't know that I really need a coffee bar or Jim in the warehouse where I work. I'd rather have health insurance. Why are some companies making the decision to invest in these kind of amenities rather than things like better benefits so I mean some companies are actually <hes> raising wages but there's only so much they can invest or they say they want to invest and so they think that the other way that they can attract workers good workers is to say here's an environment? That's got not really nice lunch services which to workers money so that's kind of where they're coming at it from Keiko. Morris covers commercial real estate for the Wall Street.

So a collapse of basic services. Understood what about food and nutrition. I mean, can you go down to the store and buy what you need to eat or no. Kim. It goes I hard currency. But in most people can't I mean, the inflation rate is over at three hundred percent monthly and right now that the minimum wage is less than four dollars. So it's not a lot.

But as marketplace's Kimberly Adams, reports fashioned is not the only thing that goes out of fashion. Zara is well known for keeping pace with the latest in fashion.

That were at one point a little quirky or or a little bit more stylized, and they've really now kind of become much more streamlined and simplified Marlene Morris towns teaches advertising Georgetown, she says changing a logo can help accompany create a different impression recognize a merger or a policy change.

"To have your long everybody for the very first time on this broadcast. I do believe, ladies and gentlemen, superstar rapper Cardi B. Is now ordering as in some is safe better will government workers to go back to work without getting paid fat. Check on that one. It's true. It's from our Instagram last night. And it comes as parts of the federal government have been shut down for almost a month. Tomorrow Cardi B, hundreds of thousands of federal workers have been furloughed, meaning not working and not getting paid hundreds of thousands of others are working and getting paid as Cardi was saying, and that group is getting bigger because President Trump has started recalling thousands of furloughed workers telling them to show up for work for free. Marketplace's Kimberly Adams gets us going with the changing definition of being an essential, federal employees. There are guidelines for who has to show up for work during a shutdown. They can only call people back if they're in positions that if not performed pose a threat to life and to property, Gregory, oh Dudin is a lawyer for the national treasury employees union. The union is suing the Trump administration over how it's. Interpreting the law that exception really doesn't apply to the types of employees that they're calling back. I R S employees are being brought back to process refunds is missing tax refund. A threat to life or property determining who is essential is a kind of art not a science Linda Bill mrS with Harvard's Kennedy School of government. She says agencies and the administration decide exactly who is essential and how essential a particular individual is changes. If a shutdown is one day or two days compared with the month. You might be able to skip say water inspections for a day, but a month. Plus, there's politics Gordon, gray is with the American action forum, the president more or less said sure say it's my shut down. So it's in their political interest to try to minimize the impact on the public grey says the executive branch is legally required to pay out. Tax refunds. So it makes sense. It would bring the IRS workers back. The fact it will probably keep angry tax payers at Bain a bonus in Washington. I'm Kimberly Adams for marketplace. Now, I don't care because you gotta work for the government will. Yeah. Pilot even have a job, but this is really serious, bro. I mean, she's not wrong. Right. It's eight hundred thousand people it's businesses as we were telling you yesterday looking for regulations that aren't coming. It's government data about the economy that is getting spotty. You're by the day about which this by the way, we got our weekly report on first-time claims for unemployment benefits this morning because the department of labor is funded for what it's worth it wasn't pretty good number. First time claims were down last week. The catch is that report doesn't include federal government workers filing for jobless benefits in Colorado, which has a lot of federal workers twenty percent of claims last week came from furloughed federal workers, and as marketplace's Amy Scott reports that might just. Be the beginning. Paul is not that long. Albert Romero filed for unemployment just after Christmas about five days into the shutdown. He does administrative work for the US department of commerce in boulder, but I need him at Starbucks because his office is. Yeah closed. I just want to get my name in the queue to ensure that I could meet my locations, whatever little income that I could get through unemployment would help definitely pay for the mortgage carpet. It's been nearly a month and still no check the waiting period in Colorado is up to six weeks. Fortunately, Romero's wife just got a job as an accountant after being unemployed for months he figures they can last till March without missing bills. I'm hoping that we're back.

"Kimberly Adams in for David Brancaccio. Oil prices are sharply up this morning after spending most of the morning down. But yesterday, President Trump was tweeting about those oil prices being down and that he's responsible saying that low gas prices are just like another tax cut oil prices have indeed been falling over the past twelve months US. Crude dropped twenty seven percent. The international benchmark Brent crude it was down twenty two percent year over year. But there are other forces at work in the oil markets. Marketplace's Marielle Zegarra has been following this and Marielle what's been going on in the world economy that's been affecting oil prices. So as you said, we are seeing a bump in oil prices this morning, but over the past year, the story has really been about supply and demand analysts expected demand for oil to be really high in two thousand eighteen the global economy was strong. And that drives oil demand because remember companies use oil when they make stuff sometimes in a product like there's oil in plastics other times as fuel they use it to ship those products. So a strong global economy and more manufacturing means more demand for oil. Also, the thinking was that oil supply was about to tighten because the US had put sanctions on Iran, which is one of the world's big oil producers so other oil producing countries like the US Saudi Arabia. Russia made a lot of oil. And then things changed the global economy. Started to slow down so demand for oil dropped and the Trump administration gave waivers to some of Iran's biggest oil customers like China. So supply was even higher than expected and all of this means oil prices dropped a lot at the end of last year. And Marielle are those falling oil prices. A good thing for the US economy. I mean, they're good in some obvious ways. Right consumers, pay less at the pump. Which means they might spend more on other stuff companies save money on fuel too. But there's a flip side the US is now the world's biggest oil producer. And so as Sarah lattice law with the center for strategic and international. Studies told me when oil prices decline good for consumers, but it is really not good for the regions of the country where there's a huge amount of oil and and associated natural gas production places like New Mexico, North Dakota Alaska higher oil prices. Take a toll on companies and communities their marketplace's Marielle Zegarra. Thanks, and let's do the.

"But Kimberly Adams, part of the discussion that we had basically had to do with whether or not this is just politics as usual in two thousand eighteen whether this is the way that it's going to go it's kind of like, you know, selling somebody your house and then when they arrive they find the chew left the lawnmower running in the living room and said enjoy your new home, or whether this is actually unlawful immoral. This is not the kind of thing that should be tolerated. Feel like that's kind of where the debates. Right now. I think well, this isn't the first time this has happened. Yes. We've seen this elsewhere in previous elections, but this is a bit more visible perhaps in light of some of the other things that have been going on in these real questions about what it means. And what should happen when control of it? Whether it be a state house or congress changes from one party to the other end, so immoral or legal. That's going to be probably hashed out in the courts because as I understand it. They're going to be fighting some of these decisions, but elections have consequences, and we say this all the time, but previous elections have consequences for the current ones your previous elections in you know, Alabama or Georgia. Have you know impact has had an impact on how an election goes, you know, in terms of voter access, the previous election here in this case that we're talking about has an impact on what happens for the next incoming governor? And so we saw record jumps in voter turn out in the mid-term. Election, especially among young voters. But this is one of these things that really indicates the importance of voting over time in terms of how transitions happen as well. As who actually comes into power. And of course, early voting is one of the things it's affected by these rules. Thanks, also to those of you in Michigan, and Wisconsin and North Carolina, and Ohio and states that have been affected by this. Matt in Wisconsin writes, this power, grab in Wisconsin is a violation of the spoken voice of the people, by the way, less. We think the midterm elections are over don't be silly. They're not quite over including not in North Carolina's ninth congressional district. Multiple investigations are currently underway into whether a Republican campaign worker used absentee ballots to alter the vote in blatant counting the head of the North Carolina. Republican party says if the fraud allegations are true, they plan to call for a new election at the moment last check the Republican candidate. Mark Harris leads his democratic rival by about nine hundred votes. One more thing just can Taylor. So we move on from politics the eternal bedding natch.
