"lithuania" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Some of our top stories from around the world. Thanks Anna, UK inflation rising to a fresh four decade high in May after broad increases in the cost of everything from fuel and electricity to food and beverages. The CPI rate accelerated to 9.1% up from 9% a month earlier last week the Bank of England forecast that price rises would peak at more than 11% this year. British consumers will mean we'll have to foot a 2.7 billion pound Bill for a wave of failures among energy suppliers over the past year. That's according to the national audit office, the extra cost will be spread across all energy bills and come on top of this surging gas and power prices that will hit households this winter, not some will help to cover the costs incurred by supplies which took on more than 2.4 million customers from the 25 energy companies that have collapsed. And a top Russian official is threatening to retaliate in a growing standoff with the European Union. That's after Lithuania blocked the transit of sanctioned goods to the Baltic territory of Kaliningrad. The secretary of Russia's Security Council says his country will respond to hostile actions and warns Lithuania of serious negative impact. Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts and more than a 120 countries. This is Bloomberg Anna. Steven, let's get more on those latest UK inflation figures. I know that our chart guru Eddie van der Walt has a special treat for us today with inflation in mind, Eddie, what have you got? Good morning, yes, absolutely. I'm looking at the ecam function on the Bloomberg terminal today, which breaks down the inflation reading in the UK, the UK CPI for us by component. And what we can see when we look at that at that chart is that over the period from 2017 to about early 2021, we saw inflation trending lower. And of course, we all know that sort of by the middle of 2021. Inflation was becoming a real problem. And that was being driven by goods and services in particular core goods and services will rising faster than expected and now we're sitting here at multiyear highs for the headline inflation print. But what we're seeing interestingly, this time around is a core goods. It's fading as a component of the overall picture. And what's starting to drive prices now is food prices. And I think most you could consumers can tell that when they go to do their weekly shop. Yeah, it's really interesting to see it laid out in kind of visual form like that where you can see that proportion of food getting bigger and bigger on that chart that goes over time as well as course is core goods in general. What does this inflation report mean then for broader markets? Yeah, absolutely. So you know what? I think the market saw this number coming broadly in line with expectations. And we saw we saw the boundary act a little bit lower. And I think that's part of the reason for that is that the Bank of England is starting to look a little bit dovish overall and it's starting to look a little bit unresponsive to these inflation numbers. And that therefore they're going to lag somewhat compared to other central banks. And then overall, I mean, the market today just being driven by that risk off theme that I mentioned a minute ago with a dollar up the power now sharply lower down as your spot 9% and I'm looking for UK yields. They're also somewhat lower on the day. You started off talking about these food prices then Eddie, why are food prices starting to increase? Right, so that's a really interesting question. I think food prices are being hit with a double whammy, particularly on fresh produce because on the one hand, natural gas price is really high. So producers of food are paying more to keep their greenhouses hot, right? All those fresh products that we want to see. At the same time, the commodity inflation and supply chain disruption last year created that shortage of the chemicals that we need to create more fertilizers, right? So the product food productions really been hampered during the last winter and the sort of products that should be hitting the shelves right now. And I think that's why food prices in particular is seeing a bit of a bump at the moment. Okay, Eddie, thank you very much for that talking us through that chart. How can we find just if we're looking for it in the terminal? E can is all you need to do? Very simple. Easy. Excellent. Thanks, Eddie. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for the talking us through the chart. It's components and where to find it. Eddie, van der belt with the latest on the UK inflation story, which is a really interesting one, and I mean, there's something for everybody in this report, isn't there because if you're worried about inflation, you're no doubt still worried about inflation. But if you are looking for those signs that, well, we won't have topped out because of the way the price cap, the energy price cap works, but at least it's not way above expectations, which had been our experience earlier in the summer. Yeah, and we're watching it straws there. I mean, there's another aspect to this story as well, which is covered by today's Bloomberg big take, which is to do with housing prices and how that's being affected by rising interest rates, another big topic if you're looking at your household bills, that's something

The Case Against a No Fly Zone in Ukraine
"Well, article 5 of NATO basically says an attack on one member is an attack on all. For instance, if Putin rolled into Estonia Lithuania or Latvia, that would be an article 5 violation United States would be at war pursuant to treaty. We don't have Ukraine as famously not a NATO nation. We don't have an article 5 issue there. But if we ran a no fly zone, there is a very real chance we would be engaged in combat against Russian forces. That is the conventional war that you and I early in our careers grew up to fight. That's very frightening to me. Is there a lot of pressure we've heard some people talk about? And I think loosely about a no fly zone. We only have about 15, 20 seconds left. Is there a push such that we're likely to see a no fly zone? Depending on circumstances right now, no, but you have to be ready.

A Wise, Contrarian Take on War in Ukraine With Col. Douglas Macgregor
"So with this right now, is colonel McGregor himself? And I want to explore this with him colonel. Thank you so much for joining the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks, Charlie. Thank you for inviting me. So colonel, we kind of went through some of your commentary that you had on Fox News that was, let's say, made headlines. Walk us through your position on the Russian Ukrainian conflict and why you believe America should not intervene. Pretty well, first of all, I think it's very important that the president make it clear and repeatedly. That we will not intervene. He said that early on, but some of his comments indicated that he was waffling. And it got a little sticky yesterday because the polls thought that they could turn over several MiG 29 jets to the Ukrainians and finally the secretary general flew in to stop it. First of all, you don't ever, ever want to challenge a major military power on that power store ship. In the worst possible place to take on Russian forces, it's on Russia's border. It's just stupid. You have no way to be successful. Secondly, we are very dependent upon your power. And we are way behind in the air Defense Department. We have not spent intelligently and we have not created effective air defenses against missiles and aircraft for our forces on the ground. So if we went into this, we risk being naked effectively in the face of air power and then our own air power would likely be shot to pieces by Russian air defenses, even though they won't admit it truthfully they know whether you're stealthy or not. They have extraordinarily effective air defenses and radars that will track and shoot us down. So from the standpoint of the capability, the best thing we can do is stay behind NATO's borders and effectively watch if the Russians were to advance towards the eastern border of NATO, then we could repel them in all probability, but it's even questionable as to whether or not we could have managed that particularly on the border with Poland Lithuania led to Estonia.

Better. And so I think what you're going to see is that Russia will be held accountable. If it invades, and it depends on what it does. It's one thing if it's a minor incursion and then we end up having to fight about what to do and not do it. The president of the Ukraine has been making public statements. He says there is no such thing as a minor incursion. Is he overreacting how much of a blander could this be? Well, it is on par for this president. It's on par for 50 years of being wrong about every major national security issue facing us. And I thought about just how wrong it was this morning when this administration refuses to supply the Ukrainians with weapons that can make colonel Putin's decision a little more difficult.

Let's start with the financial times on the front page. There which reports on biden's infrastructure bill which has been passed by the us senate in a very red display of bipartisanship. Tell us more. That's right so the bill Entitled infrastructure and jobs act which is some two thousand seven hundred pages long was indeed passed the By the us senate sixty nine hundred thirty in favor of the bills. Indeed a rare display of bipartisanship with nineteen republicans voting in favor of the bill including the minority leader. Mitch mcconnell so this bill is worth around one. Trillion dollar is and will provide much-needed funding to upgrade the us crumbling infrastructure. So for instance over the next five years some five hundred fifty billion. us dollars will be invested in roads. bridges tunnels airports rail networks The power grid broadband access and even clean drinking water across the country. And sorry carry on in on just to note that The bill will need to go through the house of representatives in order to be fully past And the speaker of the house. Nancy pelosi has noted that they will only consider this bill within the house Once it comes to the house together with an even larger three point five trillion budget will build a will include other areas including social programs and climate measures. So did biden get what he wanted. In the end i mean. How close is this package to the original white house proposal so one can consider this major achievement of any was one of his electoral promises but at the same time he does fall short of of his initial proposal and a couple of fronts so one is the sheer size. The white house proposed had proposed two point three trillion Instead of what's now agreed around one trillion and the white house houses initial proposal did include measures combating climate change on clean energy tax credits. Even expanding medicare Investments in what they call quote unquote human infrastructure and this is not included In this bill Bill focuses on. Let's say the harder Investments in terms of physical infrastructure and is indeed in the second bill that The speaker of the house. Nancy pelosi is expecting to be discussed that the Within the house of representatives that would include these other more human infrastructure investments and and this is likely to be passed are only by the democrats and not in a bipartisan fashion. Now in this time of covert. It's all about bubbles.

So we've seen her air house. Prices go up in the. Us new zealand. Canada and sweden as well particularly in switzerland. Then what can the government do So this is a tough question. Of course afra- governments to tackle. There's a bit of a dilemma When it comes to stimulus now during the pandemics withdrawing stimulus too slowly would risk in flooding. The real estate prices even further but at the same time pulling back to heart can really unsettle the markets and lower property prices too quickly and also threaten economic recovery.

And now the new york times reports that there were clashes last weekend within The party of riak machar's so this is the splm ruling party And riak machar lead as faction of the splm called splm opposition so vice prison rick. Michelle was deposed leader of this. Splm faction and Clashes took place between forces loyal to him and those opposing him and this left left More than several dozens dead in the country and concerns have been raced including by again the regional bloc that this might unsettle the rather shaky peace agreement that's in place on this infighting and of course these rather crucial in a context such as south sudan where according to the united nations some eight point three million people are in need of humanitarian assistance on currently and of course humanitarian assistance also needed in ethiopia.

That's right so the guardian reports on This quarrel between china and lithuania. So china recalled its ambassador from lithuania as lithuania has made plans to open reciprocal. Diplomatic offices with china taiwan. So spokesperson for the chinese. Foreign ministry has said that this decision By lithuania to open diplomatic ties with taiwan severely undermines china's sovereignty and territorial integrity and the so-called one china principle currently only fifteen counties recognize taiwan as a sovereign nation and lithuania is not among those countries or lithuanian. Representatives have Made the point that they just want to establish respective representation offices to enhance economic and trade exchanges as well as cultural cooperation allowing this is something we see all over the world anytime anybody recognizes taiwan. China just cuts them off. That's right an a key piece of the puzzle here seems to be really the symbolism when it comes to names and The word taiwan. So they are around seventy countries around the world that have some variations of Embassies with taiwan or diplomatic representation. But they do this under that name of economic and cultural office of taipei But in this lithuanian case they used the word. Taiwan and this is of course a major red flag for the chinese government.

"It was in Lithuania at the US Embassy in business, and, uh, it was a great experience. I would never traded as I learned so much as a brand new officer assigned to an embassy overseas. Understanding how the embassy works, how the embassy interacts with our military. And then, of course, how to interact with our host nation counterparts and to ensure that we have we have good ties there. Did you do a bulk of these two things? I know. You said you were airborne as well while you were active duty or was that in the Reserve National Guard component it was in the active duty was the 82nd airborne. I was in the reserves when I went to special forces training and that Tour in embassy was as a United States Army reservist. Okay, so you know you bring up a good point about, um, some of the some of the, uh, obviously, you've had joy serving in the military. You serve for 39. Plus years. Uh, but You know, there are people out there who are transitioning out of the military off of active duty right now. Maybe they're transitioning out of reserve. What made you want to continue service after Active duty and reserve. Well, there's I. I never lost the desire to serve when I came off active duty as as a little, uh, maybe looking forward to civilian life, and it was not what I fully expected. So I was able to maintain my ties with the United States Army and then rejoin in one of the reserve components. In this case, it was the Army Reserve and So that desire to continue to serve and that camaraderie that sense of belonging that sense of identity that sense of purpose and then finally, the sense of mission. You know that every morning you wake up and you have something to do something that really truly matters. Yeah, that's important, you know, Looking at the desire to serve many people, they may be transitioning now have the active component or reserve component. And, you know, thinking you know what I'm done with this, But then you miss you miss that. That routine that discipline as well. And so it's great that you're able to have the best of both worlds you can still get that is still be part of the civilian life as well through.

Money For the Rest of Us
What are Frontier Markets?
"As i was doing the research. I was fascinated by the sheer size of frontier markets in terms of population. Two point two billion people. A third of the world's population yet the economic impact at this point is still small only about three and a half percent of the world's gross domestic product the monetary value of goods and services produced a third of the world's population produces less than five percent of economic output. This size of the stock market's even smaller frontier markets. Make up less than one percent of global stock market capitalization that's the size of the equity market as determined by the price of a particular company times the shares outstanding less than one percent. And there aren't even that many stocks there are three thousand stocks that comprise the msi all country world index which is both developed and emerging markets. There are fourteen hundred emerging market stocks yet in the mci frontiers market and xers only eighty one stocks the countries that comprise that in. And i'll just go through the list. Because i think it's helpful and instructive to know what's there is croatia estonia iceland lithuania kazakhstan romania serbia's slovenia other countries include kenya morocco. Area bahrain jordan oman bangladesh lanka vietnam the largest country within the index as measured by market capitalization or sizes vietnam. It comprises thirty percent of the frontier market index. Morocco is twelve percent. Iceland's eight percent. Kenya seven percent. Kazakhstan is seven percent in looking at ways to invest the primary. Etf i found for us based investors is the i shares mci frontier and select emerging market. Etf i'm not sure exactly when i shares renamed it but the largest wait in that. Etf is kuwait at nineteen percent. And as i mentioned kuwait was upgraded from my frontier market to an emerging market.

Then that's a really strong application. I think i know who you talk about this. But i don't band marchand is the person that said it. I don't know it's it's also feels it's very much application to the kind of residency where it's like basically saying like i have to be there because this cool it does feel like a bit of like an in crowd out crowd thing because i've applied for a few residencies have never received any of them and i always feel like the the the last kid picked at for sport the crowd but be sure you're not the last kids standing.

So you're not too low which makes a great which is perfectly fine but the thing is yeah they will look who you are and what you're doing for them it's as important to who they are getting in because they are funded by government as much as it's important for you to go to that residency because they're getting funds and because of the people that were there before it's this is weird that american model of the capita you can say like is important but it's leveling it's each other out.

Unfortunately steel closed meetings interesting while hopefully things head towards the positive direction here for all of us that we can be back as insane snow physically later but as we do these how i lead interviews i typically ask you to put together a list of leadership principles do you serve By and so this leads to grade two anecdotes stories that That we can learn from so the first one he put. Here's care more about the lord with the lord will think versus what people will think. How's that been made manifest in your service branch prison. Wanna serve people of course in you wanna do. What's the best for them. But i learned that you cannot be. It's not my goal to be favorite. You know it's not my goal to be a but people would say all she been so good to president to me or anything else. I learned that the the most important Laura things of me rather than what people think of me and interestingly enough i would say that you know the heart thing and the back side of the moon or dark of the calling. Is that when you have to have a disciplinary. Councils are the things which are not pleasant than some things you have to go through and the but those things those meetings i always come out with a headache and totally exhausted. But i think this is also shows that this always been a good experiences for me and then those meetings When we gather together as leaders we sometimes really need to wrestle with the lord to find out the decisions because you know we come a screen. Digital's we come with a certain opinion. We come with certain possible outcome of the meeting to this though when we win winter and when we learn from each other we see that have three different approaches. And that's the time when we have to totally put aside what we say and tried to find out what the lord thinks and how he wants to proceed and I i learned this principle very well. Once i remember very clearly was so overwhelmed. There were so many emails annual reports so many things to do that. I just basically switched off the phone. I demand for any single email. And i was just like solar weld. I just i just let it flow. I learned that the church didn't fall apart. Nothing nothing happened. You know i learned. This is his church. And i'm just. I'm blessed to surf him. I'm blessed to lead the people. He trusted me. But it doesn't mean that i do it. He does it all the time. So if i can follow his will if i can at the end of the day what the day was if it can go knowing that i have done the best i knew how to do than the best. According to what i felt. This is where. I found my comfort in the tough decision. The moments of being a branch president. I appreciate that just real sense of the overwhelming and it can just pile on some days where you think you can. You can barely breathe. You know there's so much coming at you and so just to step back. They cut off a correspondence for a time. Just to catch your breath right. The assess the knicks principally is never complain commodity. Gotta complain a little bit right off. This is this is. this is my first time. I've been called to the branch Been complaining a lot but this is a really a new principal for me and something learned very recently in also which helped me. When i was studying the book of mormon i found this principle. And i learned this principle to honestly absolutely honest with you from Great mission of great leader. We had from ukraine president bush's goal imagine mission president. I think this is the even harder calling the brench prison because he has to deal with a mysterious and we know how missionaries are hall. I was missionary. But you're but he also acting as a stake president so after three years serving as mission president due to the covid to continue serving that cali and he had another calling topo there a presidency. And i call him analysis sympathizing with immense saying. I truly understand how hard it is. And he showed an example in the scriptures. Were were speak about three fights or john. The beloved only others had a very good Desire they wanted to serve and then come to the law but those were different because when their time was ended they continued to serve so for me. This was you know. I will never complain about that. I have to serve for another year or two or three because previously after certain amount of time you start to meet with district presence like hey do you have anybody you know you a replacement way authority have any ideas and you start to put that seed into his thought. But i thought of this time. I will not. I will not become complaint and i looked Learn to Of deadpool unity to grow for me. Of course. I complain if us my wife and she will issue. That's the person you can complain. It's the lord than the new life and then when you but the people. I mean the people should feel the end should know how to rejoice in the gospel.

And when you sign joy in service when you find joy no being tired at the end of the day and when you wanna complain anymore you just again you understand that this is the this is the biggest mistake when you start the thing. I have done something right now. I've never done anything. This is the lord and this is his work we just merely held seeing what he's doing with us and through us to other people that's great. I love that refocusing on on the true purpose in the glory at truly resides in this work. And also recognizing that you know like you never ever complain but complaining in the rights. People in the right context rather than is openly. So that's awesome. Knicks put is training youth or training your replacement. I would imagine in a place like your our the churches maybe much younger compared to other places in the world and from your year history in leadership. I'm sure a great leader in and do these things but there's not many people to go around the pass these calling soon. So how have you found effective in in training upcoming leaders or even the youth so the in the future in lithuania. They have some some great leaders. Ready and willing. I think this is golden kimball who says inspiration relation relations. You know in there is sometimes you you notice that the small churches said like this. You have certain families who can allow always they're always changing changing callings. But for me. I've been given an opportunity to serve at the very young age. I don. I was sixteen when i was called to the district presidency as a counselor to the district president and he was a very wise Senior couple missionaries who was serving and He trusted me. She trusted me. So that i remember very clearly led to one day Prison hiring was visiting lithuania. And he says you cannot translate for hiring and looking back. I know that he could beat up any other person or so. Many people who are speaking english so much better than i am who could have done the same things will do better but he wanted this experience from especially for me and this was one of my great spiritual experiences because i was able to translate for presidenial and i remember sending.

"And here with denise gravel juice. Did i say right close enough very deals and actually do have much practice it just but the green juice denise screen avid use. Now you are in lithuania and you'll have to new to abolish. I'm such an ignorant america. And there's probably things. I should know about lithuania. You know the culture the language. Whatever it is and i'm going to be the real and say i don't know much but that's why you're here to help us out. So just maybe give us a rundown of of you and your experience in the church from the callings. You've held Maybe gives a summary of what the church is like in lithuania cliff. area and the it's used to be a part of russia longtime ago someone's the ussr countries but it became independent in nineteen ninety three. And that's when the iron curtain fell down that's when religion starts to fall to the country and people were starting to get interested. And that's exactly the time when i got interested in the church. Was that time bali. Fourteen years of age. I was very young but our skin sale was interested in religion. But i was interested to meet americans real americans and to practice my english. And you to understand with. Didn't see any americans really the anybody else except people from you know. Use our country's yes although israeli exotic for us to conceive missionaries for the first time. Yeah but like. I said it was more for me interesting to see how well they taught me in my school because before i met missionaries. I'm sure was russian accent that was speaking with and the when meeting with a missionaries love. People saying i'm getting this little bit of american accent now. Is there anything more you dad like being you said you were fourteen in the iron curtain fell. I mean was there that feeling of liberation the world. Your world has totally changed. What how would you describe. Some of those feelings felt from from that young age. The funny part when the when though as this revolution going on that night i fell asleep on. I didn't hear anything. By the next morning i wake up. It's a free country but talking from the perspective of kit. I must tell other amiss. Maybe which exists will very happy. It was a happy place to live. It was amazing. Place safe interesting in well for the kids and we had everything with yeats. Everything was available for us but we didn't have a religious freedom of religion was not there and when the time came a lot of missionaries from different churches. Were coming to the country and preaching the gospel night desolate The hand of god that he led me even straight to the church of jesus. Christ latter-day saints at that. From the first time i met i was in. I was all in the church mostly over the my friends missionaries. But when i was baptized even i i couldn't say the testimony but with time bednarz Must more like a rising of the sun for me. When i look back. I see that. I had a lot of good spiritual experiences which led to the point where i am now. Have a strong testimony of jesus christ on the church. Speaking of the church the first few years were very good. The that's where we saw a lot of growth of the church so if we stay today we have how. It's very still small very small. We have evolved eight hundred people total in the church in. Lithuania would have five branches to in the city of illness. Among the city of columnist cliveden showed is the biggest cities where we have a small branches of the church at the moment Answering a question about the Would be to say the coincided not serve so i have never been to a young woman and relief society everything else absolutely. They're nice and so. I think it is mentioned. We've got to give a shout out to landed who originally connected us. But is it You've served as a district. President narrow which is similar to a stake president to is still a district. Are there any stakes. in lithuania. There is no stakes. Unfortunately lithuania but yes i served as district president By even had chance to serve as a concert to domitian president that because in lithuania when we speak about mission president. He's not only presiding over the michigan's but he's more like acting like a stake president for us but now we have a local district presidency in the branches. Run by the members and in that district princi- reports to the state or the mission. President of right. Yes yes yes. Ucsf admission president again. Another interesting thing. might be for people to learn about our mission. Our mission has four countries. And we speak five languages so lithuanian baltic mission has lithuania latvia. Estonia and belorussia saas part of their mission. And as you know belorussia still kind of close to the missionary efforts in serving their but we speak. there's lithuanian speaking mission is latvian. Speaking missionaries estonian belorussian and russian speaking missionaries in the mission. Bios start imagine. Is lithuanian languages. russia yes. There is a lithuanian language. Even though there is about three million of us we have our own language. Honus yes you speak. Lithuanian and russian ending lithuanian. Russian english and focus on thrill that one in for good measure. Imagine you see a lot of the same missionaries since they're not rotating through the entire mission. There they're all staying within lithuania Yes this is the interesting part. If you call those russian speaking you might serve in any of the four countries but if you sir if you call to speak a certain language which is Lithuanian for example than you are probably will be serving lithuania. This for four different cities mentioned before nice and in what temple district argument another hard question to answer because in villainous branches illness. I build a second. I don't like to divide us by the language but villains second dominant language is russian. And because of that. We chose to belong to kiev ukraine temple when the muscles the district's go to finland Temple interesting so the word in its branch that you're part of the bride's she has so the ranch that you're part of they speak russian in their services in mostly with speak russian. We have some american english speaking people and our branches who have a lot of people from ukraine which due to the situation ukraine have decided to be great. Listen to way and are very strong members. And i don't know what i would do without my hence members of the churches be very hard for us. Wow that's great. that's awesome so you've been assume you've been the branch president to may be sister. It's it's the second time in prison. That did something wrong. That i use all things. I did wrong when i was first time. Serving the lord gave me a second chance. That's great in It's been two years now. great awesome. Is everything tells me. Just the the coronavirus situation. There is still doing any in person meetings at this time of allah. Very hard topic for us because we haven't been together for a year now march sixteen two thousand twenty. That's when the church stopped and we haven't been the we never been released to go to the church meeting all our meetings held via zoom so it's only zoom meetings at the moment catching and how is just in general in lithuania. The dacoven cases in things seem to be on a positive.
