But because I had the skill of planning, that were able to navigate a lot better through. So you never know what's going to happen.

"An extraordinary crisis and all all crises are extraordinary but one of the things which was most extraordinary about mosh twenty twenty was that it. Markets fell very quickly. We've seen that before. But then they reverted remarkably quickly and really the most similar crisis In terms of market action that you can put your finger on since the second world war Was the october eighty-seven crisis so That that very rapid full you had followed by an almost equally rapid recovery. So so that might say well. You know if you fitted if you've sort of tested you crisis protection on all these slow crises. Then maybe you do to uh in this foster crisis. Nice actually not what we found so we found that We hadn't quite good strength of strategies during the march april period so for example futures trend following something. We talk about quite a lot Did you really rather well in march and april of of last year But we also talk about for example rebound saying and and and trying to stop rebound thing Which can can have the nasty effective Of buying the losers. And then if the lease carry on fooling than you dammit you just bought a whole bunch of loses time for another month full and we found that if you if you have strategies which try and control your rebound thing but they have to have a relatively row they have to be quite fun strategies and that would be my real point so most of our protection strategies are quite fos the signals that quite quick they use data That goes back typically a few weeks And they can meet positions around quite rapidly and that worked pretty well in march april last year. If you do much slower strategies you would not have had the protection characteristics right and and to put some numbers on on the speed of march. Twenty twenty we s and five hundred fell thirty four percent That was the fastest thirty percent drop in history. And i believe it was just a day under a month maybe a few days under a month and then the recovery from the end of march beginning of april was back to break even by august. That that's a pretty astounding turnaround a arguably faster than the recovery of from nine eighty seven Which was itself. Pretty quick wasn't absolutely so it was just totally extraordinary and from that perspective. You know the past and give you a particularly good guide as to how how that crisis would would unfold. Maybe that's sort of retrace my point a little bit that you come you come bill protection strategies to really trying to put your finger on exactly what's going to happen you have to. You have to be aware that you focusing ability is poor And you really go to have a strategic response. and that's why we call the book strategic management. It's really a set of strategies that the plan and you can't make the plan on fly. You know when you really the worst thing you could have been doing. Last year is making protection strategy. Deer in march of twenty twenty was too late by that point yet to make his view protection strategy in the months and years before then and then you had to be implementing it during march twenty twenty so there was a quote of yours i really liked and i wanna ask you about this quote. We are in a risk your environment than we have been in the past twenty years for the foreseeable future unquote the past twenty years really. There were a lot of risky events that took place from nine eleven to the great financial crisis to the pandemic. What makes this a riskier environment. And why do you see this as Being a persistent risk for the for the next foreseeable future so the reason that i think we're in this highly much riskier. Investment being is because markets much less diversified than at any point in my career. And so you know. I started trading markets. When i was a high school in the late nineteen eighties and at that time. People got very worried that the japanese market was found fifty percent of the. Mci will vote today. The us market is two thirds of the world. So it's spend that's the highest. It's ever been highest rate that any one country has ever been in the global equity index. And then if you not digging within the us market and this is a little tougher to do But if you dig into. The proportion of the market made up by tech and the reason is difficult to stay change the classification system a couple years ago. Then you'll see. The tech is a bigger portion of the us equity market than it has ever been including and the late nineteen ninety s in the tech bubble. So you have an incredibly concentrated equity market both globally into the us and also by sector Within the us and for me that means that you know this is not sort of looking at the vix today tomorrow yesterday. Whatever more strategically The market feels much more likely to be able to produce Unpleasant outcomes Because the only free lunch you haven't financed the diversification you. You have the least diversification i've ever seen that's kind of interesting. So we have concentrated non diversified portfolios. And one of the things we've seen is domestically the us seems to be a higher poor proportion of global equity markets and then within the us. The text actor continues to increase. Its waiting when the s&p five hundred what does that mean for the future of of risk and managing it..

I'd love that I think i think you're right. david needed. it's we focus on what we do in every business and listen. Interestingly enough i do this for other companies is tough for me to do it for myself. You know i think there was a mathematician in the nineteen thirties. Mathematically proved you cannot see system when you're within assist up right so it actually takes the value of a coach to devalue hiring the experts you know because they see it from a different perspective and that's really a gift because we're so in our businesses were so in delivery which is so easy to get caught up in what we're doing rather the impact were causing. But i would say you know my first thing in enact. I actually found that. I went right back to the basics last year. know twenty twenty when the Pandemic kitten lockdown started I talked business. Owners that were essential services. And i talked to business owners that were completely shut down. They were invent staffing for example photography. They were completely shut down. Multi million dollar companies down to zero overnight and and and then in between and what was interesting. Is every single. One of them needed to go back and look at who. Now our target audience who create value for who wants what we have to offer and then what's important to them now like what do they want. What do they need. What are their challenges whether opportunities because it doesn't matter who your customers are it's changed and So you get right back to identify your target audience. What's important getting communication. Pick up the phone. You know subdue surveys find out not what you think. But what's really going on with them.

And so now you can start figuring out based on what value i create when i have to offer to be positioned.

I was doing a workshop about a week or two ago and in the middle of the workshop. I solve three different communication problems for three different companies and the person that chair. Running the workshops said how. I can't believe you did that in five minutes and i said no. That's a lifetime of work that got me to that point.

I am talking with the managing director of sports. Betting for nascar. Joe solanki one of the great things about the advent of sports. Betting in this country is that it's creating a brand new workforce i. I mean i know colleges and universities are now offering curriculum because young people are so interested in getting into the field of sports betting. What led you to be the head of sports betting for nas car. Which i'm sure isn't a position that didn't even exist a couple of years ago. Now that's a great question. I appreciate you asking i. I always tell people that. I really kinda fell backwards into the world of sports betting my background prior to being in this industry was military and law enforcement. So it's about as far as you could get from From sports betting or the the world of sport But i had the opportunity to live overseas in germany. And while i was living over there this is about twenty fifteen. Two thousand sixteen and i saw how mature and culturally normal. It was the bet on sports in europe and even the places. I traveled outside of europe as well and that was around the same time when sports betting the conversation looked like it was accelerating in terms legalisation in the us. And i thought well overseas in germany. It's probably a good idea for me to get involved with this industry So that when we moved. When i do we've back over to the us Maybe it's something that that is a good fit for me. So i worked on the data side Overseas for two and a half years. And that's exactly what happened in two thousand eighteen when i moved back to the us Legalization happened right around the same time and i stayed On the data side in the us selling data to operators as the market was legalizing and being in that position With sport radar the data supplier That i worked for for five. And a half years. I saw how much not only leagues but financial institutions consulting firms accounting firms. Were looking and and not even looking but realized that they needed to build some sort of vertical for sports but because it was bleeding so much into their organizations and i i really wanted to kind of be the person who was in charge of that at a league or organization that was involved in sports betting using my overseas and domestic expertise. So this opportunity at nascar Came about Late at the end of twenty twenty. And i jumped all over it. I mean there's only so many so many major leagues in the us. And there's only one of these positions of each of those leaks So i jumped in full speed on that and luckily nascar selected me to to take this role. And it's been an amazing three and a half months that i haven't i haven't looked back I really enjoy the culture here. And i i love the family You know the the family structure of nascar kind of how at trickles down to all levels of the organization. You came from sport radar which is an amazing place to watch the balloon of sports betting. I mean generally speaking. What has sports betting done for all sports. I mean people who listen to this show. no that i'm fascinated by the fact that people in colorado bet large amounts money on table tennis. I don't get it but if people win betting and table tennis good for them. How have sports betting been good for the popularity of sports across the board. Yeah that's a great question. I think it. I think it has and there's a time and place for for each of these sports. I mean if you look at the popularity of of table tennis and the betting on it really was a result of of cova you know with with. Us major sports shutting down and march april last year. You saw that spike. There was articles in the new york times about betting on ukrainian table tennis and that that really is a function of not only it was the only live content available but it also is a very segmented segmented sport where matches very short You could place a bet and got a pretty quick return if you do win And you can kind of go onto the next thing and you could also live stream. It which is also a huge a hugely helpful tool in terms of engagement and getting people to watch sports when they're really deprived of it and age of covid. But even as we're talking kind of outside of outside of the age of covid for sure. I mean you know what i was when i was living in in europe There were people at third division german or check soccer games and a huge part of that. You know you looked at the sponsors there. People were sponsoring or betting companies sponsoring You know these kind of third division teams which would be akin to a betting sponsor in the us sponsoring a single a team or something like that. Which would probably probably won't see for a few different reasons but it really did allow for Engagement in the lower leagues Because there was so much volume of sports and like i said there was a time in season for so even when Soccer ended at the end of june. July and august was an opportunity for some of the other sports Even east sports to really pick up in terms in terms of betting volume. So i think it has been a boon for for all sports involved. And that's how we look at it for nascar as well would attract did you to the position add ask what did you see in nascar that made it a perfect fit for sports betting for me for sure it was kind of the i would say aggressive nature which nascar has has approached sports betting relative to relative some of the other leagues. I think I have an opportunity at nascar to you. Know to have a platform like like on the show with you dave. I can talk about what we're doing the sport And really not the ba- coded about it at all I'm happy to talk about kind of how we're embracing sports betting as a vehicle to to grow the sport promoting our partnerships in terms of. You know what we've done in the sport to to help you know. Use it as a tool. Not that for a revenue tool But more so. Like i said in the beginning of this this call was is for fan engagement tool in efforts giving me the the latitude to kind of go out there and be aggressive about how we approach partnerships how we approach how we talk about it how we educate fans on what is betting on nascar understanding how important that part is and being aggressive about Just the whole. Us landscape getting involved in the conversation of how nascar gets involved in state by state legislation Even in the states that have tracks That we don't own now you mentioned fan engagement. And that's one of the reasons. Why all this sport leagues are really jumping on sports. Betting what are the indications that sports betting is increasing fan. Engagement for nascar. So we've seen we've seen it from the top of the funnel down in terms of engagement so You know we look at this Kind of funnel of of betting and how it's permitted all sand engagements At the top of the funnel i would say is kind of the free to play side and we have a free to play game on on nascar dot com in partnership with national jackpot races and the the engagement on that Free to play game week over week has been quite strong and since sports betting has been legalized. We've made so many improvements and as our partnership with pen has grown We've really been allowed and allowed ourselves to make some more improvements on that kind of connecting it to to bedding down the funnel But but kind of inbetween betting and the free to play side is fantasy as well which i know that With the topic we were going to get to here but nascar had a strong fantasy product. And it's something that we actually revamped. Because of sports betting in two thousand eighteen or fantasy live product is a season long season-long product but we We introduced a new feature where we have a driver in the garage. So if you're watching a race And driver driver crashes or as is removed from the race or not in consideration. You can put that driver from your garage in the race. So kind of allows fans to be engaged. Even if one of the drivers that they picked no longer In in contention let's say and then in the batting side just year over year in terms of growth and We look at the metrics of handle or turnover We have seen especially since the daytona five hundred this year. A significant amount of growth in terms of In terms of the handle and turnover that's bet on nascar compared to even the daytona five hundred twenty twenty And i think that is in large part because of the offering that we put out there and our learnings from last year and the in race product. That's our.

Paul Karin, Thanks so much greatly appreciated a good conversations, warning, always a good conversation. With one Jacob Liu. He's a former treasure secretary of the United States. Check. Lou especially fired up this morning. We had a wonderful ranging conversation, including his time of duty with Mr Moakley in Mr O'Neill of Boston. That was a bit ago. Conversation with Jack Lew. Common ground has been clear for a very long time. And finally in the last We've seen a conversation, beginning looking to find it since the expiration of extended and supplemental unemployment benefits since the expiration of protections on conviction. We've seen a train coming right at us on. It's been far too long since Congress has had a serious kind of conversation has passed legislation in May and we've seen virtually nothing since then. Let's just remember what the facts are. Chairman Powell described it so well those opening comments but nearly 10, million people unemployed and a large fraction of them 5 to 10. Million people facing eviction. Degree of crisis here is not a small It's very large is large and macro terms and it's just enormous in terms of personal terms if people lose their homes. If people are homeless at the end of this crisis, their recovery period will not be months. It will be very long and it will be very hard that is going to be a social problem in an economic problem. So Congress passed the deal now before the inauguration with multiple challenges of keeping people in their homes with eviction protection, giving them support to pay mortgages and red Hoping keep food on the table through a combination of unemployment benefits and food assistance and dealing with the problem that's taken local government which are going to meet a cutback and services in the loss of employment at the worst time. We went through the last high point of the coded crisis, the low point of the economy with enormous government support. That's over. So if we go through the long, hard winter that we see ahead without additional support is a long time before January, February Mr Secretary. How do we spend the great distrust of the rural urban divide in this nation? You have tackled that for years again going back to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts ages. Go. There's just a immense distrust of those cities and those Democrats. It's right out of the 19th century. How do we break that distrust and come to meaningful compromise? It's a good question time and you know it used to be that food assistance was one of the areas that brought people together. You know, the original food stand program. Compromise between the agricultural community and people advocating on behalf of sport. People wait could see something like that again. The truth of the matter is working People, regardless of whether they live in cities are in rural areas face common challenges. You look at the team and vice President President elect Biden has put together its a group of people who focus on what does it take to make work produce a decent standard of living for people regardless of where they live? Starting with Janet Yellen and her deputy, while the idea Moe the chairs the Castle of Economic Advisors, silly Arouse the head of the Office of Management Budget, Neera Tanden. These are all people understand the problems that working people face whether they're in cities or in rural areas. I hope we can begin that conversation that their life experiences. Help them to connect with people both in the communities where people like you and I live and in rural areas where the problems are not as different as they seem. But Jack going back to the stimulus and good morning to you. Are you worried that Republicans are rediscovering their traditional concerns over debt and thus won't do enough on stateless? So, Francine, you know, I've spent most of my career trying to strike the right balance between government having the resource is to do it it needs and fiscally responsible way to make this a better country. On and in times of crisis, saying We need to do what it takes to get through the crisis. This is a moment of crisis. This is a time when we should not be worrying about $100 billion here, 100 there JetBlue and extraordinary conversation today, whatever your politics, just always interesting to hear the discussion there in the immediacy and stimulus and Paul, I can't gauge how much of this lift His belief in lame duck stimulus. I just honestly don't even answer that important question. No, I don't And you know, I think the expectation Tom is that we will get some stimulus. Whether it's the one billion into the three billion that seems to be the biggest spread. But it's kind of a question of timing here, Tom because there's a a Jack Lew just mentioned, you know, we're going into a three month period here. Let's call it December, January February where the numbers are going to be extraordinarily grim on the pandemic. Side and presumably, that's not supportive of the economy, either. Which would suggest boy if you think about now versus March April last year, it seems like you know, fiscal stimulus is as needed, Perhaps even more than it was back then it will necessarily have the political will that we did back then. So that's kind of the conundrum. This is a real observation, and I'll admit to all of you across this nation and particularly in You know, the more climactic warmth of south of this country. It's starting to get cold up here. Yeah, and Paul, the whole restaurant experience outside. I I think that Bill had to go out and get the holiday puppy cut last night, which was like the like The GDP of you know, I can't remember what state but I was after I unloaded the checkbook on Ah. Kyle on the team over there clipping hair. I noticed the restaurant next door and you know they got the tent thing out of the street. I didn't see any heaters and there's two people eaten. Yeah. How long can that go on? Yeah. You're exactly right time. I think that you know the restaurant folks did a wonderful job adapting here, you know, over the spring and summer in the fall here, but Again. It's again is present like Biden suggested. You know, very difficult Winter ahead and a lot of these businesses that have been kind of hanging on. They might certainly be at risk here..

Good evening over a relation puts an extreme burden on small and family owned farms and is contributing factor to many farms going out of business. Policies during the Obama administration, such as the rules under the waters of the US Act, threatened to increase that regulation as his policies proposed through the green new deal. Which your climate plan embraces. It doesn't hold me if I could finish. I'm sorry. Thank you. How do you plan to decrease The regulatory burden for farmers and businesses as a whole to number one. Last farmers by dealing with you being able to put land and land banks and you get paid to do that to provide form or open space and provide for the ability Of you to be able to be in a position that we are going to pay you for planting certain crops and, in fact absorb carbon from the air. That's part of what the plan remains, too, in terms of agriculture and and the environment. But as relates to if you're talking about regulation relates to fertilizer and water tables. That's a different thing in the United States in my state of Delaware. We have a $4 billion industry, chickens, chicken and chicken, poultry and all. What is all the all the manure? Quite Frankly, that is a consequence of Chickens and so is polluting the chest.
