"Somehow escaped your notice, Korean culture is the new new thing in this country. The Netflix drama squid game crazy popular. It's creator, by the way, says there is going to be a season two. Last year, parasite became the first non English language film to take home the Oscar for best picture. There's KPop, of course, also kimchi also crazy popular. Korean culture has made such an impression that 26 Korean words have been added to the Oxford English dictionary. One of which is how you, which translates roughly high and told to Korean wave used to describe global interest in that country. Marketplace is Kristin Schwab, looks at South Korea's growing cultural power and the economic engine behind it. At a tiny storefront in downtown Manhattan, lives a skin care lovers Paradise, called OO 35 millimeter. The shop is the size of a hallway, stalked floor to ceiling with Korean lotions and potions. Manager Winnie's ong shows off her favorites. I really like on the circle, vegan kombucha tea essence. With real kombucha tea, you know, snail mucin, actual snails lime. So this is actually something we created. The angel shark. So it's completely shark free. No sharks harmed in the process. No sharks. Song says when the store opened a decade ago, most customers were of Asian descent. Now shoppers of all backgrounds stop in. Kate arena is looking for a cleanser and sheet masks. She got into Korean skin care after watching K dramas. That kind of like sparked interest right to once you have like a peek, I think into the culture. You can expand and so many ways. This is what South Korea is betting on that a little bit of western curiosity will snowball into a cultural obsession. And this bet is decades in the making. Is the author of transnational how you? Starting in the middle 99 days the Korean government made the effort to bring the cultural industries education in the national economy. South Korea's economy at the time relied mostly on conglomerates like Samsung and Hyundai. Brands, the government helped create. So the government goes to these corporations and says, hey, we funded you. Now we want you to help fund the entertainment industry. And part of the pitch is that Samsung and Hyundai will benefit to. Everything. Because of popular culture, they like a Korean tail like a Korean product like a smartphone, like at the end of the semiconductors during the influence that it's big. And that cultural influence can help Korea sell makeup fashion and food, the way the U.S. sells Coca-Cola and Levi's jeans. So Samsung and Hyundai start their own film and TV companies. At first, the goal is to get East Asia hooked, and it works, leading to more investment in entertainment, especially KPop. Music labels open boarding schools to groom teen superstars, the government creates a ministry of culture and ends censorship laws that forbid Korean artists from singing in English. KPop grows right as social media explodes. And in 2012, Gangnam style becomes the first video to.

"It is a big week for watchers of the U.S. economy. There's the fed meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday when we should learn more about when the Central Bank will start scaling back its bond buying, effectively Tapping the brakes on the economy and rising inflation. Then Friday, we'll get the latest jobs numbers for the month of October. Recent surveys show Americans are feeling pretty good about the job market these days as the unemployment rate has fallen below 5%. But about the overall economy, sentiment is moving in the other direction. Marketplaces Kristen Schwab looked into what's behind this unusual split. People's feelings about the labor market and the greater economy usually run in tandem. Two parallel lines on a graph. Laura valve camp is a Professor of finance at Columbia business school. Business cycles tend to affect many parts of the economy in synchronization. This business cycle has been different. Jobs outlook is about people's sense of what's happening right now. If I'm laid off today, can I get a job tomorrow? But when it comes to confidence in the economy, it's a little bit more of an abstract question. And I think for many of us, it creates associations with what might be happening in the longer run. If we've learned anything since March 2020, it's that it's hard to predict the future when it depends on a deadly virus. Islet fishback research is consumer behavior at the University of Chicago. This health crisis for the last couple of years suddenly, there are other reasons to feel uncertain. Will there be another variant? Will there be more lockdowns at a much newer piece of uncertainty on everyone's minds? The question is how much I can buy with the money that I make. The I word inflation. Maybe workers are getting a couple extra bucks an hour, but they're unsure of how far those extra bucks might go. Or if wages will continue to match rising prices of goods and services. But people's feelings about their jobs and the outlook for the economy haven't broken up, they're just on a break. Adam hirsch at the economic policy institute says those two sentiments are intertwined. A lot of people are souring on the economy. They stop spending. They stop buying houses. And starting businesses. And stop fueling jobs. I'm Kristin Schwab for marketplace. Speaking of sentiment, it was pretty good on Wall Street today. We'll.

"In Los Angeles. I'm kind raised all it is Wednesday. Today. The 16th there June Good as always to have you along, everybody, You know that thing. Or you're waiting and waiting and waiting for something to happen. And then it happens and you're like That's it. That's kind of the way fits your J Palace press conference went today. I mean, there was never going to be an interest rate increase out of this meeting, and it's not like he was going to say Who boy that inflation. Did You see that? That's really bad. But somehow I expected more. This is extraordinarily unusual time, and we really don't have a template or, or, uh, any experience of of a situation like this. I mean that much. We kind of knew right? Powell did say inflation is going to be a bit higher than the Fed had been thinking for a bit longer, Maybe as well. Also their big bond buying program. They are no longer to quote pal from a couple of months ago, not even talking about talking about cutting back here he is today. But you can think of this meeting that we had as the talking about talking about meeting if you like. And I now suggest that we retire that term, which is which has served its purpose. Well, I think I kind of liked it. I don't know why he's bugs him a little bit. I don't know. Hell was, though going on bullish on the American labor market. There's every reason to think that will be in a labor market with very attractive numbers with low unemployment, high participation and rising wages across the spectrum. So that's the upshot of the Fed meeting today, but it is handy actually the chair Powell. Said that about the labor market because we have spent every single month since the start of this pandemic, picking apart jobs, numbers and unemployment claims, But there's a lot happening in the labor force that doesn't get captured in that data right, like the toll that long term unemployment. During a once in a lifetime pandemic can take and how that long term unemployment is creating a less predictable back to work. Economy marketplaces. Kristin Schwab has that one. Lieberman's daughter has an auto immune disease. So in the Virginia High School, where she teaches computers encoding mandated that teachers come back to work last August, she quit. I really thought I could find something, even if it was part time employment. She applied to software companies that work with schools. But she has no sales experience. She applied to teach Spanish, which she's taught before no bites. She applied to jobs that have nothing to do with computers or teaching like an hourly position at the D. M B. He really lost hope. You just have so much time with just your thoughts, and it eats you up. Losing a job is already isolating, says Art Goldsmith, an economist at Washington and Lee University. And now there's the isolation of the pandemic itself. That has created a lot. Of poor mental health more so in this recession And in previous recessions, long term unemployment changes how people feel about their worth as workers. Sarah Damaske is a sociologist at Penn State before the pandemic. She followed people who lost their jobs by the 12 month mark. They were describing themselves as having fewer and fewer johns that they felt that they were qualified for. This can create a pattern. Someone gets a job below their skill level or one that has nothing to do with their skills, their unhappy and leave or are let go because they were never a good fit. And then they're back out there searching. It's devastating for their career in the long run each time they scramble and find something and fail, they fall further and further behind. That's not the case for B Liederman. Next month, she'll start teaching computer classes again. But the new job comes with a compromise the commute Is 50 miles each way. I'm Kristin Schwab for Marketplace. That's a long way. Sorry. One more quick thing on Pell and the Fed. Remember Yesterday we told you about the dot plot kind of a Graph showing where individual members of the federal Open Market Committee and presidents of the regional Fed banks think interest rates are going to be in the near term future. Here is Powell on the dots. Today? The dots are not a great forecaster of future rate moves, And that's not because it's just because it's so highly uncertain. There is no great forecaster of Future does so so dots to be taken with it with a big big grain of salt, noted Ms Chairman Budweiser. Do they do them then? On Wall Street. Today, Equities were kind of lukewarm on the Fed. The yield on the 10 year spiked. We'll have the details when we do the numbers.

"Hi wisdom. It's Monday. The 31st of May good to have you with us. We will get to those heavier topics in just a bit. But let's start off with a look at the labor market last week, first time unemployment claims dropped to their lowest level since the pandemic began. 406,000 people filed claims.
