"Is our guest Manhattan institute fellow. I'm going to put you on the spot. You're in talk radio world. So here in talk radio world, there's a whole lot of people who believe that this is being done intentionally that the destruction of our cities and let's face it. I mean, I fled New York this week for Florida. So many people have hundreds of thousands of people are moving out of California. They're moving out of New York. Democrats don't want to see another point of view. I mean, that's my belief. But Charles is the damage the destruction, the consequences of these progressive policies, intentional in your view or inadvertent. Do I think it's intentional? No, I think that so let's take a look at down south of New York City in Philadelphia, Larry krasner, who's the progressive DA, the ultimate progressive DA, who was just reelected to a second term. And that was seen as sort of a major coup for krasner that he had this. He had this less progressive challenge in the democratic primary who he beat. And you know, I think what happened there, and this is a good example. The turnout in that primary race was 18% of all four voters. Elvin Democrats in the city Philadelphia's most democratic city. Krasner got a 10%. The other guy I got about 8%. And krasno won. But that's not representing the will of the people of Philadelphia. What's happening is that in these low turnout elections, mostly activists, and people that activists organize to go vote are making these massively consequential decisions. These are the cold off cycle elections. They happen, not in November of a major election year. And so people pay attention to them. And I think that those people do I think that they want to see cities destroyed. No, I think that they genuinely believe that incarceration is the greatest evil and the police are the greatest evil in our society. I think the wrong about that. I think that's a crazy thing to believe. But I don't think that they want the damage that they're reaching. I think Aldi believes, genuinely, that less incarceration will lead to less crime. I just think he's wrong about it, and I wish that he'd see reality. But that's different than saying that he intentionally wants to make our cities worse. I think he's wrong, not I think he's crazy, not evil. I got it. And I say this with respect. I don't think we need a Manhattan Manhattan institute fellow to acknowledge that less incarceration would lead to less crime and think that's kind of crazy. And I appreciate your work. I appreciate your columns and Charles fan layman. I appreciate you joining us here on the Mike Gallagher show. Keep finding the good fight. Absolutely. Thanks..

"On here. Yeah, absolutely, and thanks for helping me on Mike. You know, I think that the key takeaway there were lots of little details in the brag memo and we can talk through them. But the key takeaway is that the imperative that he has offered to his line DAs is that they should view incarceration as a last resort that basically all circumstances they will not seek to incarcerate somebody pre trial in jail and they will try to as much as possible confines of New York State law, not incarcerated people post trial and present. That's accepting the cases of murder, assault with a firearm or deadly weapon. Certain sex offenses, certain white collar crimes, racketeering a handful of others, if you don't commit one of those small number of crimes, you're not going to go to you're not going to go to jail and you can try it's hard not to do prison as possible. Where does that come from? So I think there's a lot of smart research out there that says on certain margins for certain populations going to prison is what we call criminogenic. Induces them commit crimes more in the future in some ways. So for example, there's some really interesting research in Massachusetts. If you take first time misdemeanors, people have committed minor crimes and you divert them from jail. They are less likely to commit crimes future the reason is if you go to jail, it's hard to keep your job in order to stay in the labor force and work as good for keeping people out of crime. That's for sort of a narrow population. Many of whom have already been supported by the de Blasio and the outgoing de Blasio administration, New York City, are the progressive leaders who have been doing this work for years. When Bragg is doing is taking the lessons from that literature that, you know, you could move the incarceration needle 10% for some people, especially if you locked up another 10% of people who aren't in prison enough. You move your conversational 10% is saying all prison is bad all the time forever you want a safer community, you should have as few people locked up as possible. And that's just not true. We know that's not true. New York State's exterior with powerful other jurisdictions as far as the barrel form. We know that's not true for other jurisdictions experiences progressive prosecution. And I think it's going to be disastrous for the island of Manhattan because I said a message to criminals all across the city that if they get caught, if they get apprehended, they can expect not to go to jail and they will fight like hell to make sure that they don't have to go to prison. You know, I'm saying this all over the country. It's not just New York. It isn't just a New York problem. I read yesterday that there are a hundred murder suspects free they're in home confinement in Chicago. We've seen the smash and grabs all over the country. A friend of mine saw it two weeks ago in New York, back to New York, Union Square, beautiful men's clothing store, a Roth, I think rothman rothman's clothing store, 7 guys, burst into the store, clear the shelves of merchandise. I mean, you know it, you know it is looking at what New York looks like. Every CVS, every Dwayne Reed, most of the products are bolded down with under lock and key because thieves keep the terrorizing the stores, clearing the shelves and they're defying any prosecution. You know, Charles I'm as intrigued by Alvin Bragg's pushback as I am his policy because this week he said, I'm surprised that there's any criticism for this. We know that letting people the fewer prisoners we have, the safer we are. It's so convoluted to a crime victim. Can you imagine being mugged by some career criminal, which is I saw a video yesterday. A good Samaritan back in New York, giving his coat to a guy lying on the sidewalk as he draped the guy with a coat. The guy walk jumps up beach the heck out of the guy and steals his wallet and runs away. And it turns out this guy has done this repeatedly. The last time he did it to a woman on the upper east side, he didn't get jailed. They don't put him in jail for something like that. I mean, Charles, this is insanity. How does this incoming mayor Eric Adams a former cop? A guy who campaigned on Law & Order, a guy who promised to reject this kind of lunacy. How does he get along with the district attorney? Yeah, you know, it's not clear as of yet. Obviously, they're both Democrats, but there's a lot of diversity in the New York City Democratic Party of state Democratic Party. It's not clear what other guidance is going to say. There's been some back and forth between Bragg and the new police commissioner and the hope she was Eric Adams pick and the hope is that that reflects an opinion of the atom's administration. And look. And by the way, by the way, and by the way, she didn't like it either. She actually stood up and condemned Eric Bragg's policies. Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, and I think Adam test to understand that this is not what he was elected that he defeated so many other primary candidates because he ran on this platform of being the sensible tough on crime. Candidate in a year where homicide rose 40% were shooting through his 90% 2020 versus 2019 or nationwide homicides were up 25%. What we saw this wave of unprecedented violence and precedented since the 1980s and 70s, that he ran on saying, yeah, you know, people don't want to defund the police. People want to put serious career criminals behind bars. And it's possible to sort of not punish those sort of minor first time offenders and to put those guys behind bars. The problem is when you make these blanket statements when you say per se, jail is bad. Per se prison is bad. Serious offenders will not be punished because we're trying to not because punishment is bad. That's the harm. You know, in criminal justice, every case is different. And when you prosecute tab discretion because of that fact, when they shackled themselves with this waving of preemptive waving of discretion, not when you get into trouble. I got to ask, Charles feign layman.

"One of the most stunning developments of 2021 and really the last few years has been seen prosecutors get elected district attorneys all over the country, who are insanely soft on crime, so we've already had the problem of judges soft on crime, but when you add district attorneys who don't want to prosecute criminals, you got a real problem.

"The news has not been great. According to some new data from the federal reserve millennials. That is people from ages. Roughly twenty five to forty are struggling in spite of having more education than their parents and grandparents millennials are worse off financially than their parents and grandparents were at their age home. Ownership rates are a lot lower for millennials than they were for their parents and grandparents. And apparently this awesome. How ties back into avocado toast. But allison schrager economist. And senior fellow at the manhattan institute you actually think that millennials are wealthier and more successful than they think they are. Well think how you define wealth can be a little tricky. I mean there's relative wealth and there's absolute wealth right so economists like me tend to count as well what your earnings are worth when boomers were young. You kind of had this option of nocco to college and you earn a decent living. So millennials living world. We're going to college is a lot more important. So a lot of a made an investment. in themselves. they went to college. They went to trade school. They took out some debt to invest in their future and for a lot of them it is paying off in higher wages and not only that they have much more stable wages partially because when you have a college degree or a lot less likely to have a long period of unemployment here wages tend to be a lot more stable in that way. Their wages are also worth more because any asset. That's more stable. Tends to be worth more than something. That's more volatile okay. So more millennials than boomers went to college so they're earning higher salaries I guess on average than the boomers did is that. Is that correct. Yes i have some statistics here. Yes and if you look at twenty six to thirty nine year olds using a survey from the fed the average wage for boomers in one thousand nine hundred nine when they were twenty six to thirty nine with seventy two thousand dollars and today in zone. Two thousand twenty dollars for twenty nine hundred thirty nine year olds in a twenty nineteen..

"January six dr day history of the united states cap president trump is spoken many times since we left office. And i don't know if we'll ever see. But i will always be proud of what we accomplish for the american people over the last four years in new hampshire this week downplaying his differences with president trump Over the course of their partnership president trump of course returned to the stage last night as well with that speech in north carolina. Talk about it on our roundtable. We've got rahm emanuel donna. Brazile wall street journal columnist jason ryan riley a senior fellow at the manhattan institute and author of new book. Maverick a biography of thomas sowell and former libertarian member of congress justin amash and carson let me begin with you. The new york times is an interesting analysis of president trump this where they call them diminished but dominating at the same time of course. He had to give up basically his blog this week. He's still has a hold on the republican party. You serve with a lot of republican members of congress. How do you explain it. What republicans do about it well over the last couple years. I've really seen it. Take off. When i first got to congress. I could see this nationalist sort of starting to swell and by about two thousand fifteen. It took hold of the republican party in in a pretty big way at first members of congress when donald trump took office were doubtful about him. They would make fun of them in private. They'd criticize him They'd insult him. Even i thought they going too far and i was a big critic of donald trump and i couldn't believe some of the things that were said about him and then around two or three years ago around the beginning of twenty nine or so. I saw people really start to shift and the party really became donald trump's party completely and that's going to be the way it is over the next few years. I don't think. I don't think we're going back to a different kind of republican party.

I covered this on my show on Monday by parents who do the outlets like the Federalist and you and others. Who sounded the alarm. Christopher Roof. Oh Manhattan Institute's done some great work on this have sounded the alarm on critical racism theory. You're now seeing parents saying, you know what? Not today. Not tomorrow. Not next week, either. Not on my watch. You think this is might be the turning point in the culture war for US critical race theory. It could be and I'm like you. It's easy to get down. It's easy to be pessimistic. The news exists to make you anxious and angry and depressed. We still live in the greatest country in the history of our We are surrounded by amazing material luxuries.

"Justice and drew here on Twin cities news talking 11 31 of 35, and we have 5 90 0 to share an eight o'clock. It's not anything you haven't heard before. But I've finally reached the conclusion that this is actually a really big problem keeps Saying this over and over early, everything twice. What's her twice a week? Eddie like anybody in a position of power. Any position of power, then said that You need to be like, um Chloe would raise some curiosity will take a bit little tight. Even our White House Press corps is the most uncurious group of people you could ever imagine. Disney quietly removes their a critical race theory. Anti racism training from website after insider leaks, documents to a reporter. This same reporter uncovered this 97 item print Woods checklist that will run through a few of the items on From the yw 97 for the white. Okay. Okay, Well, I don't want to be here. I got a 92nd bike ride plan later today because the weather is going to be so nice. So we may have to just go through a few probably didn't let's go to the phones and talk with stand in Wyoming. Welcome to justice and drew in Twin cities. News Talk. What's on your mind? Yeah, just so white. People know there's a lot of teachers that will not teach critical race theory. Good. Um, there's there's people want to make it sound like it's something that everybody is gonna just jump on board with. There's a lot of decent teachers out there that are young, because I know him. Our young under 30 years old that get it and will not teach it believing went over something like that. That's unfortunately we're gonna have to stand open. Unfortunately for in a lot of those instances, they're gonna have to quit. And And that's where that's where the rubber is really going to meet the road is because these are you know these these courses these sessions that teachers go through in a lot of instances in a lot of district. It is mandatory. They don't You don't have a choice. If you want to be there. You want to have a job there. You want to teach these kids you have to go through this critical race theory training. You may have to go prove the training, but you do not have to teach it in your classroom. They're pretty much and defendant in that five. And the fact is, is that you just have to get the teachers on board with The parents in the school and you will have any problem full board. That's why we're trying to keep everything from becoming federalized. And if you federalized education and you federalized, believe sport, that's where they're trying to go on. If you just recognize the big picture, focusing on all the other little things much I understand what the big picture and the big goal is on their part. You just pushed back on it and keep him down. And don't be afraid to speak up. Our friend of a friend of the show. Josh from the from the Vaping Studio called in last week and was talking about this and mentioned that he was going to be running for the school board, and I hope that that's something that a lot of people consider doing is well, because that's an area that you really can impact change. You get some organization. You get some people behind you get together. Start taking some of these school board seats away from these these weak willed, you know, no spy and having The liberals that that want to just jump on whatever. Whatever this social justice mob is upset about on any given day. You got to push back against these things and seats on school boards can make a big big difference. And those are areas where, like I said, You know these air small elections. You can win those elections and you can make those kind of changes and you gotta ask questions. And you gotta and when, when? When somebody just wants to like that, like that school board member in Oklahoma was well, that's just They're just trying to cover for their white fragility. It's like, OK, you could make that you could love that accusation. That's cool. Whatever. Because you know that's what you want to do. But tell us, please. How is this indoctrination? Okay. How how is teaching these things? And how is telling these students that they are oppressors? Just because of their skin color? Explain that to me because again once you begin to have a conversation? About what? Actually critical race theory teaches beyond sort of the labels of what you just you don't want to cause you're white or you don't want to cause you're racist. Okay, Look, you can think that all you want, but tell me what it is about this and why this is okay. I guarantee you they're arguments are going to fall apart because they do not have any They don't like it. You want to. You want to not be taken seriously use the phrase white fragility. Just just say those two words back to back, and that's a That's A. That's a big giant red flag that I no longer have to consider you a serious person, nor listen to anything you have to say. So real quick from here, this Disney insider leaks, training documents to a journalist, Christopher Roof, reviewing the corporate the corporation and what it expects of their employees taking ownership of educating themselves about structural, anti black racism. Program was titled Reimagine Tomorrow. It expressly expressly discouraged by the program are the use of phrases like all lives matter, and I don't see color. You can't it again. Isn't it interesting that like two phrases? That do push back against the idea. What critical race theory teaches right And they are very good arguments of to vory all lives matter. And I don't see color on if you can't say those because those are arguments against what is we're teaching, and it actually makes kind of sense. So you can't you can't go and say those Um, Disney, Whitney responded, this cracks me up. Acceptance and tolerance and celebration of people's differences. This is something that they write that they they promote, as we have consistently demonstrated in such popular films as marijuana. Coco Black Panther, Soul and riot and the last Dragon. E s So happy. Yeah, look at the movies we made. The guys had a bunch of movies. People like him. That's the equivalent of being like I'm friends with lots of black people. It's really the Disney version of that. Apparently Disney did end up going. And shortly after that ridiculous defense, they did go and take down, apparently at least made it made it no longer viewable to the public. The anti racism trading. Yeah, it's probably still happening, though things same reporter this Christopher Roof. Oh, he discovered this a checklist. This is again Manhattan Institute's Chris Roof.

"I'm David Weston leading up to election markets has seemed to be getting ready for Ah Democratic victory across the board that would bring more spending, more borrowing and mohr inflation. By election night, they were having some second thoughts. Now it looks like we may have a divided government. How much change in direction? Are they likely tohave for their perspectives? Welcome now Charmian. Most of our money, she's chief investment officer for Wealth management of Goldman Sachs and Beth Acres, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute. So welcome to both great to have you back with us. So start with that question. How did the market because honestly, election except there were violent reactions, including in the 30 year for the Treasuries and equities Futures and they settled on. Actually the equities kind of liked it over all over the course of the week. We think that they're two drivers that have driven the market this week, one election related. The mere fact that we don't have uncertainty anymore that the election actually occurred in the process was generally smooth. Was important Second, I think in terms of the fact that you have mentioned this is well that it was 50 50 split very close everywhere, so there's a strong signal that policymakers should not go too far to the left or to far to the right. That the markets won't like That, and the electorate with such incredible participation confirms that they don't want extreme policies and most importantly, divided government if we go back to 1928, or we just look at the post World War two period Returns, both for equities and bonds during periods of divided government are close to double that of single party government. So the markets of financial markets do not also like extreme policies. So that's a perspective in terms of looking at the election results, and then from a fundamental perspective, we've had 83% of you as stocks at the S and P 500 reporting earnings. Exceeding expectations, both on revenues and on earnings so very solid fundamentals. We had the third quarter GDP number at 33 Prosper sent so very strong momentum going into the fourth quarter, helping offset some of the risk that we're going to have with the surgeon infections, so that's very important. And then, In addition, we just had the nonfarm payroll numbers and claims yesterday so very good support there and incredible decline in the unemployment rate with an increase in participation. So very good general. So Beth, you follow labor economics in particular, In addition to the election this week and the Federal Reserve, we also had some jobs numbers were that were pretty encouraging, actually. Better than had been expected. How much help does the labour market really need from either the Congress or the administration at this point? I'd say as much as it can get. I saw a lot of people starting to celebrate the good report that we had today and were quickly mobbed by economists who wanted to remind them that while this was good news today, we are not in a good labor market. So, as professor Hubbard pointed out in the earlier segment, we lost 20 million jobs at the onset of the pandemic, and then we have begun to crawl out of that hole. You've got about halfway out 10 million warrior jobs is a long way to go. It's especially a long way to go when you realize that a lot of the people who have come back into employment at the early stages of I guess what we could call a recovery are people who returned to the same job that they were temple. It temporarily laid off from a lot of the people that we're seeing who remain unemployed. Today, We're completely separated from a job. And so as you can imagine, it's going to be harder to get this population. Back to work, So I think a lot of support is needed not advocating for legislation myself, so they need a lot of support in the labor market. But Charmaine do we need a lot of support for the other markets? Because, as a practical matter, it looks like if we don't have to evade taxes is not too disruptive. It sort of Goldilocks sort of just right in the middle, particularly of low interest rates. It makes equities worth a lot. I think there's no doubt that we need some support as we get through the continued acute phase of the pandemic, and we know what the surge that we've seen. The number is not just in the US, but in other parts of the world, we're going to have a very difficult November and December In terms of infections and what that means for the economy. If you look at the high frequency data, whether you're looking at Google Mobility data, apple mobility data say travel open table data. You are seeing a flattening of that improvement, so the next several months will be tough. But the assumption is that if we get a vaccine and these therapeutic sometime in the first quarter of the year that have some level of efficacy, no doubt that none of these are going to be magic bullets. But if you have something that's going to help Then you need some support. But gradually, the unemployment rate will improve. If you think of our forecast for 7% By the end of the year, we already got it. The glasses more than half full, then it is empty. So briefly, he'll give you the last word is there could be even rougher in the labor market because we didn't bring all those 10 million people back and effect. We have to shut down some or it's gonna be worse. Well, The good news is that we had a good bunch this night with such which its census at a higher level for any potential deterioration in the coming months as the pandemic potentially gets worse. Yeah, I would say we're in for a long winter, both with the pandemic and the labor market. Quite. Unfortunately, exactly, so we have a lot to look forward to. We hope it's better than we expect. Many thanks Nata Sharmeen most of our money of Goldman Sachs and Beth Acres of the Manhattan Institute for giving us a rundown on the job market as well as what's going with equities and debt and in general, what is confronting the next president of states was expected to be Joe Biden, although at this point it's not absolutely certain particular with the president of states. Saying he's going to take it all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States on eventful four years ahead of us without a doubt. Coming up for vice President Biden may think he's the next president of states. News organizations may agree, But President Trump isn't so sure. One of the possible legal.

"To Lars Larson show. It's a pleasure to be with you. And it's a real pleasure that Mark Mills with me from Northwestern University from the Manhattan Institute. He's a venture partner of venture capital Guy who actually takes the science he knows and then applies it to actually turn into things we need. He cofounded Digital Power Capital, which was a venture capital firm and was chairman of CTO. Nala. Jeez, we've been talking about the sort of the impracticality ease of the green new deal, and we started out with vehicles before we leave vehicles altogether. Can you speak to this? I love following a Twitter account called Babylon B, which is a Christian base, but but they do parodies and they and they have Gavin Newsom in one recently where is his governor of state with no electricity suggests everybody drive an electric car and and, of course, an awful lot of their parody. They don't even have to work. Hard to get to there because all of us have been saying if you want us to be driving electric cars and Americans are buying 16 million gas and diesel cars and a quarter of a million electric cars and you want that jumped upto five or 10 or 25 or 10 million cars a year where we're going to get the juice and I get the answer bag from a lot of liberals. I hate to say it, but it's very simplistic. It's like a child's understanding of something. If Daddy needs more money, you just go to the ATM and it hands you money. If you need electricity, just plug it into the wall. And the electricity is there have they figured out? Have they have we confronted the notion that if almost a third of Americans Electric power of our grid nationwide comes from coal and a certain percentage from that gas, which the greenies also aid and then a certain percentage from nuclear, which they won't even consider as one of the replacements, sources And that we're tearing out dams. To some extent, we're reducing hydro and certainly not advancing any new hydro. Where the heck is the juice going to come from to make these cars run? What kind of, uh, circular argument. The serious greens claim that will be a lot more windmills, Solar rays and.

well are you maybe so I I think that many of our official organs are not necessarily skeptics as we are but but there certainly I think on the bottom line the public that is the case and you never the

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
