Coins and Cash: Shortages, Hoardings, and Threats

"Walking money for the rest of us. This is a personal finance show on money how it works how to invest it, and how to live without worrying about it. I'm your host David Stein today's episode three, Zero Eight. It's titled Cash Coins. shortages. Forty and threats. Weeks ago, my daughter and I were at a bakery buying a couple of loaves of bread. We didn't have the exact change and they didn't have the coins to make chain. So they rounded down, we got a small discount. This week I was going through the McDonald's drive through, and there was a sign that said due to treasury shortage of coins, use credit or debit cards. Round up to the nearest dollar, donate the different to Ronald McDonald house charities or use exact change on cash transactions. There is a coin shortage in the US right now. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell told Congress last month. What happened is that with the partial closure of the economy, the flow of coins through the economy, it has gotten all. It's kind of stopped. We've been aware of it. We're working with the meant to increase supply while working with the reserve banks to get this apply to where it needs to be. The Agency of the US Treasury responsible for minting coins is the US. Meant it was established in seventeen ninety two by Congress when it passed the coinage Jack and it chose Philadelphia as the site of the I meant. Now, the US mint operates production facilities in Philadelphia, San, Francisco Denver, and West Point. Every two years, Congress requires US Treasury to give a report on the US mint its budget and its cost to produce its coins. In twenty twenty, the US meant projected that it would produce fourteen billion circulating coins. Including eight and a half billion pennies. One point, three, billion Nichols two point, four, billion times. One Point, eight, billion quarters. Now. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the US mint cut back production of circulating coins in March and April. Year to date through July, they had produced eight point, two, billion coins. They said, they were back up to full capacity by mid. June anticipate producing one point six, five, billion coins per month. That would equate eighteen point, one, billion coins. But here's the thing about circulating coins in the US and other countries. The meant only contributes a relatively small percentage of the new circulating coins each year twenty, nineteen, it was seventeen percent. New. Coins. Going into the supply chain? The remainder came from third party coin processors are recyclers as individuals by things they get back and there are machines where you can put your spare change and it will sort it and this recirculating process. Make sure there is a sufficient supply of coins that has broken down. A couple of weeks ago, meant issued a bulletin, which said, we ask that the American. Public start spending their coins, depositing them or exchanging them for currency at financial institutions or taking them to a coin reduction kiosk. The coin supply problem can be solved with each of us doing our part. This isn't the first time that there has been a coin shortage. There was one in the early nineteen sixties in the US.

Black Entrepreneurs Urged to Seize the Moment Despite Difficulties

"Business becomes part of the conversation, and it becomes part of the community. You write about how These black own franchises of McDonald's shape the community around them. They goes beyond providing jobs. They play a leading cultural roll. Talk a little bit about that. Right, so African American franchise owners take on the role that black business owners have historically taken on, and that means that they're providing other resource is in communities because of the color line in government services and opportunities. So they're underwriting youth programs in schools there, making sure that first jobs are actually being created. In the communities. They're sponsoring things like the early Martin Luther King Jr holiday, So you start to see their influence not just in the business sector, but for historically black colleges and universities for the creation of the all American basketball team. And so these black franchise owners become incredibly visible and incredibly popular in these communities, because, as I say in my book, these communities are cut off from federal resource is and other types of opportunities in order to have their needs met. So, Dr Chaplin. How far does it extend beyond McDonald's? Because we do know that today in 2020 the gap in wealth between black Americans and white Americans. His massive. Why didn't this catch on Mohr beyond McDonald's? Well, we think that the reality is that you can't solve robust and complex and deep social problems simply by having business leave the way that we have. Public fear we have public policy with public resource is like taxes in order to do that. But what it does reveal is that this moment that McDonalds is in right now, saying that they stand for black lives donating to the end of the CP. It's not knew we have a 50 year plus history of McDonald's inserting itself into the civil rights struggle. So that they can appear that there on the right side of history. But in this early period when MacDonald was extending the opportunity for Franchising, people did not have the full understanding of the consequences of fast food on the American diet. As well as the concerns about wages in the industry today supporting black live visa be McDonald's has more to do with the quality of work. And benefits and providing for its people than some of these other solutions from the past.

McDonald's customers changed their behavior during pandemic, but some trends could endure

"Of McDonald's down a little bit today. Despite the fact, same store sales in the second quarter only down two point three percent. That's better than what we have been seeing from a lot of big restaurant companies out there. And Jason similar to the comments that we got from Coca Cola's CEO. Chris Kempinski saying he thinks this quarter represents bottom for McDonald's. Do you think he's right? Yeah. That's a it's an interesting perspective to hear from him, and actually think in McDonald's case could be right. I mean I think. When you look at this quarter when you look at. These? Numbers look pretty darn good. All things considered I. Mean I think that what we're going to see. As as discerning season rolls out, it's it's going to be the expenses that really separate the kids from the grownups here eventually, they're going to be companies that can deal with the with the ramp up in costs due to the pandemic. Way better than others. The McDonald's is one that is going to be able to deal that I think pretty pretty pretty good fashion, I mean it's obviously a huge concept. I mean being franchise means. You've got a lot of partners out there with a lot of expertise in their particular geographies. I don't think you can dismiss that I don't think you can discount that interviews remember not all that long ago. starbucks actually pivoted in their strategy. Going away from company owned stores in foreign markets to back to licensed stores. Because they wanted to rely on that expertise that boots on the ground. Expertise that locals have in McDonald's has that, too, so I mean I think that. This is a company that's going to always benefit from this move towards. Contactless drive-thrus. Always a part of the concept for the most part, and then they've certainly noted that. I think it's very. Interesting to note how dependent they are in some markets, though on their dining room segment, and if you look at their international operated market segment, which is a a large piece of the business pre Kovic, nearly seventy percent of customer orders were in restaurant across those larger markets when they close those dining rooms. Even for a limited time. It makes a big deal. It makes a big. Big Impact on on their financials even though they have the drive through to fall back on, so it's not all sunshine and lollipops, but given the situation. This is a restaurant company that's going to be able to deal a lot better than most well. You talked about the expenses, and that was one of the things Kim Ski was talking about on the call just sort of. In particularly their marketing how they have pulled back on the marketing, spend rightly so, but he was talking about it almost in the same way that Warren Buffet talks about his elephant gun. Like Hey, we've. We've cut back on marketing over the past four months or so. We think as our operations rebound in the second half of this year. We're going to be able to ramp up our marketing to a degree that we have in for a while. I'm assuming at least part of that would be aimed at first because. That was one of the things I was reminded of with. This report is. McDonald's, needs breakfast to be successful. They do you're right and I'm glad you mentioned breakfast because that's that's where I was going to go with this as well. They make Donald's. They don't need to mark it as much as others. Maybe I mean. It's obviously very well known brand already. With large presence at their, in despite the fact that they have recovered a lot of lost sales, like in other words, the the the the fall off in June, for example they've recovered essentially ninety percent of their two thousand nineteen tales from junior. The things are looking a lot better than they were just a few months ago, but that is the one sore point. I think for them. His breakfast in. It's not just. People aren't eating breakfast for dinner or lunch as much anymore. It's this idea that a lot of just aren't commuting anymore and so they're not selling breakfast for breakfast. And that that is a bit of a problem because McDonald's. You know I'm not the biggest. McDonald's in the world, but if if I had to go for for one meal I think it would probably be breakfast, they do it pretty well. And they're just that. That's fallen off a cliff, and that's not gonNA. Come back as quickly even though they had that lever to pull in serving breakfast brilliant essentially as long as they want. But, you know what that's. It I mean I it'll be. It'll be a slow recovery. It's it's. I don't want to say it's going to be a lost year, but it's GonNa, be, there's there's going to be a lot of growth that is lost this year, but but again I think McDonald's a company, and in a very admirable position they will be able to play offense while a lot of other companies were playing defense in that ultimately I think a workout well in their favor.

"At first, no one expected the building to last. The Tennessee Centennial Exposition, which was something like a world's fair or Walt Disney world's epcot was held in Nashville in eighteen, ninety seven. It featured a full scale replica of the famous Parthenon from Greece the Plaster Parthenon. This plaster Parthenon which fit in with Nashville's ambition to be the Athens of the South housed an art exhibition over six months one point eight million people visited the exposition small when compared with the twenty, seven million, who turned out for the Chicago world's fair of Eighteen, ninety three, but huge for Nashville which, at the time had a population of one hundred thousand as a nineteen twenty one newspaper put it the general effect of the cream, colored staff structure with the brilliant colors, and the freeze and Gables, so overshadowed all the other buildings that when the exposition was over, the people demanded its preservation, and it became shrine to the residents and visitors of Nashville. But this shrine was not built for the long term by nineteen eighteen. The building had disintegrated so badly that it had to be closed for safety reasons, however, thanks to popular demand. The city decided to rebuild it. Isn't concrete structure in nineteen twenty. The Nashville Parthenon reopened to the public in nineteen thirty one. As with the Greek Parthenon, the columns on the Nashville structure are not completely straight, but have a slight convex curvature called emphasis. The corrects for an optical illusion that makes straight lines appear concave at a distance. The structure is also full friezes carvings, and includes a replica of the famous elgin marbles now known as the Parthenon Marbles. These marble structures were part of the original Parthenon, but were removed by the British earl of. And sold to the British Museum in Eighteen Sixteen, the entire transaction remains a point of dispute between Britain and Greece. And while the original Parthenon is in a ruin, the national version features the complete structure. A builders made educated guesses to fill in the parts. At the time of its reopening in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one, the only thing missing from this replica Parthenon was a statue of the Greek Goddess Fina. But after twenty years of small contributions from the public via a donation box at the site plus some private funding, there was enough money to commission a forty two foot. That's thirteen meter statue, the same size as the original. Tennessee sculptor Alan require to eight years to finish the mass of work, which was unveiled in nineteen ninety, and features a spear that was crafted with McDonald's flagpole is the sturdy core for twelve years. The statue stood in plain white gypsum cement, but in two thousand and two it was gilded in real gold, although some people have complained that the gilding makes Gaudy, it's actually more historically accurate. Nashville Parthenon still serves as the city's art. Museum and it's permanent.

"In McDonald's history. McDonald's executive sat across the table from the members of operation. Black Unity Near. Stoke stood by to facilitate. Facilitate people were armed. People brought guns to this meeting in case got to explosives, but this point Cleveland's white franchise owners wanted out their businesses were being crushed by the boycott, and they were done with being pulled into contentious civil rights disputes for McDonald's. However, it wasn't so easy. The company knew how it would look to give in to threats and intimidation and someone like a hill in particular, plus he was making demands that could set a precedent for McDonald's to. To have a role in local communities that it just didn't one operation black unity demands. We'd get to pick the FRANCHISEES. We get a fee for our I. Guess Search Firm Capacities. We get a pool. We get a card. We get money invested in a community trust for us a McDonald's. No, no, no on every point there stokes was caught in the middle, his white Democratic primary opponent was using the protest as a scare tactic asking what local business would be. Be Next to fall victim to the threats of black activism, if stokes wanted to live up to his promise of unity and get reelected. He had to get this settled. Meanwhile, members of Operation Black Unity turned on Hill, accusing him of extortion he'll lost control of the movement he had started now. All of this posturing and back, and forth is happening in the press as well as the national newspapers pick up the strange story of McDonald's boycott and Carl Stokes McDonald's. McDonald's was keeping an option warm. This entire time turns out behind the scenes. McDonald's and mayor stokes had been in talks with another community group one that would take over the restaurants that white franchise owners were giving up and that this group would be responsible for any community development projects like swimming pools parks that meant McDonald's was off the hook. Oh and it never have to negotiate with David Hill ever again. The day before mayor stokes primary election. He arranged in. In. Agreement with McDonald's and operation black unity to end the boycott stokes was reelected, and while hill did not get control of the restaurants. They were being run by members of the black community. I guess the question is. How do we measure success? In this situation? The boycott did expose black economic power in Cleveland in a time where African Americans were for the majority living in poverty. It did show that there was a difference having a black mayor, even though it. It did not solve all the problems. The Cleveland Boycott was covered in papers across the country, and the eventual agreement demonstrated to activate that local black communities could have a voice in negotiating with an international corporation about how it operates in their neighborhoods. Even for that brief moment. They really did impact. McDonald's and so I think the takeaway from those experiences were then deployed in different cities as they were challenging. What did it mean for McDonald's to be such a presence? In the years after Cleveland more and more black entrepreneurs around the country took over existing McDonald's and open new ones for fifty years. They've tested. If black capitalism can improve the lives of black, Americans in their communities wasn't enough. That's when we come back. We're back. In nineteen, sixty nine Cleveland's black entrepreneurs got what they wanted. Ownership of local McDonald's franchises and marked a change in how the company would operate in black communities for years to come. Black capitalist hoped that McDonald's restaurants could help franchisees in several ways i. they'd let them become business owners next with the support of McDonald's businesses would become profitable, and then with that money, black franchisees could invest in their communities and thereby help other black people. It hasn't been that simple from your reporting and talking to people. How are black franchisees feeling about McDonald's corporate? I spoke with a lot of former franchisees. Who? Especially have very mixed and more negative feelings where they feel like they've been forced out. Basically that McDonald's put them in a situation where they could not win, they could not continue to save the company. K Taylor is a senior correspondent covering restaurants and retail for business insider. At the end of last year, she reported that many black franchisees were making significantly less than their white counterparts. She also found that in the last few years, the number of black-owned McDonald's has been falling out of the seventeen hundred people who own McDonald's restaurants fewer than two, hundred or black. That's down from over three hundred in two thousand seven people have been aware of. Of these issues for decades, and from Dr it kind of goes, through ebbs and flows where they feel that McDonald's is listening to them making some changes and then periods where they feel like McDonald's is ignoring the concerns. This goes all the way back to the nineteen seventies and in response, lack franchisees created a group to advocate on their behalf. The National Black McDonald's operators association over the years. Some of them have accused McDonald's of discrimination. More recently black franchisees have told Kate that they've faced obstacles on several fronts. I mean restaurants were not as financially accessible as they'd hoped for more than a million dollars to just open one location, so you have to be a millionaire several times over basically you are going to thrive in the McDonald's system at this point. Add to that in recent years. McDonald's corporate has demanded expensive tech upgrades and move towards a model where fewer franchisees own more restaurants. That's made it even harder for black. Americans to buy into the McDonald's system. Because African Americans in this country are less likely to have the generational wealth. They just aren't in the same position to. Invest millions of dollars as frequently as some white Franchisees have been in two thousand seventeen, the Federal Reserve released a report showing that on average black families net worth is fifteen percents that families. So getting a franchise has become more challenging, and that brings us to the second point that these restaurants would make black business owners money. Kate found that it's been difficult for them to make a prophet. Right McDonald's several told her that the company LTD which ones they're allowed to run and where they could open new restaurants. If you're in an area that is lower income, it can cost a lot more for security cost. So. That's something where you're paying more for security. You're paying more for insurance because of concerns related to that, and that just cuts into the bottom line. Current and former black franchisees told Kate Dave attempted to run restaurants in more affluent areas. One told her that working a corporate liaison he tried to help. A fellow Black Franchisee opened another store nearby. McDonald's basically told both franchisees that their new stories available. It just wasn't a possibility at that point. And then literally the same week McDonald's announced that there was going to be a white franchisee opening a store on the same street that the black Franchisee e had been trying to open the location on. CATES said that McDonald's declined to comment on this specific example being excluded from owning restaurants in higher income neighborhoods has financially hurt black franchisees to sum it up in the most basic way, black franchisees we're making about sixty eight thousand dollars less per store a month than the overall total or average franchisees overall that gap is more than double from what it was and twenty twelve win. Black Franchisees have spoken out about their concerns. Some told Kate. They've noticed strange corporate behavior like McDonald's employees showing up for unplanned inspections late on a Friday night once even Christmas Eve or getting written up for minor infractions like a torn piece of wallpaper and that could. Could lead to franchisees being penalized financially, or it could lead to them getting their stories takeaway mixed in with all of this fears that if black franchise owners are struggling financially, maybe even selling their restaurants, they won't invest in their local communities. Remember.

Since two thousand eastern lightning had been connected to a number of crimes and suspicious activity most recently two years before in two thousand twelve members staged massive demonstrations across the country to spread false predictions of the end of the world years before that the group was linked to a series of violent incidents arson battery kidnapping and extortion. But the savage unprovoked killing of a stranger seemed unheard of even for eastern lightning. China was outraged by whoosh `alliance murder soon shaky cell phone recordings of the attack taken by other McDonald's patrons circulated across the Internet though the violence itself isn't visible the sound of Wu's screams and the image of her attackers dipping. In and out of frame as they delivered each blow was disturbing and the people of China were determined to punish those responsible. Not long after patriarch. John Lee Dong who dealt the killing blows and his eldest daughter. Jong Fawn who started the attack were interviewed on national television. When asked why he murdered Wu John Lee. Dong simply replied. I beat her with all my might and stamped on her. To she was a demon. We had to destroy her. John Fong was equally callous as they stood before judges at their subsequent trial. She often smiled. Father and daughter were each sentenced to death and executed. They maintain their belief that the killing was righteous to the end John. Lee Don claimed we are not afraid of the law. We have faith in God but while the Jong sacrifice their lives to carry out violence they believed was for the sake of their Jesus. They'd ultimately persecute their fellow believers even further the McDonalds murder pulled. The Church of Almighty God back under media scrutiny and as a result government crackdowns intensified after. Wu's murder Chinese authorities arrested more than one thousand members of eastern lightning and considering China's notoriously aggressive approach to religious dissidents. Their punishment was most likely brutal. After the fact even eastern lightning denied the event entirely refusing to associate self with the Jong's crimes in an official statement about the McDonalds murder. They said this case itself is full of lies and layered with dubious facts. The lies used to frame and entrapped. The Church of Almighty God are collapsing in on themselves today.

"We've got McDonald's we've got starbucks. We have a longtime CEO emphasis on longtime reportedly leaving the company that he he founded and we will get to all of those but we have to start with apple. Because Apple's first quarter which is the holiday quarter was everything you would want to be if you're an apple. Shareholder profits and revenue came in higher than expected iphone sales fifty-six billion dollars worth of IPHONE. Sales else yeah. This is the quintessential beat and raise kind of quarter which apple probably needed in terms the stock Devaluation was trading At all time highs in now is a new all-time high a little bit more so it fulfilled A very high expectations and the question. That you know probably will be bandied around will not spend too much time on this house is evaluation justified at this point. Yeah I mean. We'll we'll get to the stock in a second but the iphone sales rightfully so getting the headlined find the. What is the other products category? That's the official named apple gives it the other products Apple Watch Air Pods beats headphones. Ten billion dollars worth of sales. Yeah you can split up the various segments of apple and get a number of extremely large companies and I should just spin off the other products and you'd have a maybe not a maybe not a top top one hundred company in terms of market cap but certainly top two hundred certainly if you were a fortune five hundred s and p five hundred companies. How many could you get out of Apple? There that that must've work has been done a few times the pile of cash is one of them At at over two hundred billion right now is one of the more dominant companies In history is apple's pile of trades under the ticker P. L. C. S. But in terms of the actual business yeah they've got the the various moving parts wearables. I I guess and and home and That being the the fastest growing part today and and so- expectations for for that or are the highest of various things I think that the IPAD and Mac Sales were a little below expectations and there. It would have been a time where that would have been a big problem But today is not that time iphone is still the dominant part the business and and really got the job done Especially in China. So what about the stock well actually before we wrap up on the stock worth mentioning and this is something will return to a couple of times. Today Tim. Tim Cook did talk about China. And I think in most notably showed up in the guidance that they gave cue to the range of guidance was wider than and they normally give and that was tim cook in his team's nod towards the uncertainty in China and rightfully so yeah a bit of uncertainty. Both as is to what the purchasing patterns will be there especially over quarter in our relief. You're looking at apple over one quarter of timeframe you're probably missing a lot of story there but Possibly benefiting a little bit from move to do some of the manufacturing outside of China and really. Yeah this like many other companies is talking has to talk about what the China fact is going to be in his largely answering entering with the you know over the short term. We really don't know over the long term. Probably not much of a problem apple stock has more than doubled over the past year. As you said it's at an all time high as strong as this company is. This really doesn't seem like the data by shares if you don't own shares so going into the day it had moved up from Over the last six months from about seventeen times earnings of over the next twelve months to twenty four times earnings over the next twelve months The next twelve months earnings. Are you know. Always a little harder to Way Than than the actual trailing twelve months so it they're looking at good earnings in the next twelve months and things like China might be more of a headwind than than we know today And giving a much higher multiple on that positive future. The than was being done six months ago. So yeah the the risk here is that the the stock trades a little bit more like the stock usually trades and at some point in the future. It probably will shares of McDonald's up a little bit this. It's morning after a good fourth quarter report. McDonald's prophets were a little higher than expected global. Same store sales were nearly six percent Another company dealing with uncertainty in China in the future in the present. McDonald's closed a few hundred locations agency. But that's a tiny fraction of the number of locations. McDonald's has around the world. Yeah there is certainly a time when McDonald's was looked tat Negatively for not having done as much expansion into China Essay Yum brands which got bigger there faster and earlier than McDonald's. What's but Today that doesn't look like As much of a problem They have to sort of give the same answer today that Others are giving. We'd we don't not really no. We're taking care of our employees and and you know we don't know I I think that for McDonald's it's more temporary sorry a more where permanent hit to actual cash in the bank in that. If you don't eat Adam McDonalds you're not gonna eat more there later hopefully Whereas if you don't go out and buy your iphone today and you really want to you're gonNA buy it And you know in a month or two or something like that so I think that you you know the phones will eventually be built and manufactured and sold and McDonald's. This is a you know when when they're closed for business they don't they don't make that up later. So that said is another good quarter. I think they have highlighted that US sales are an traffic is what they're you're most focused on and I think that is going well the US guest count getting US guests counter. Positive is our number one priority priority new CEO said In in the call. And you know they're they're getting people in they are. Although I get why it's a priority already. You know even though we see the positive comps and they're able to boost that ticket for two thousand nine thousand nine they did. They did see a slight decline in traffic. You mentioned mentioned the new CEO. I think that's also worth highlighting. McDonald's I mean this is a quarter we're referring to him as the new CEO. St I'm sorry because his name is harder to pronounce than Smith I'm GonNa let you take a crack at it. You'll probably get it right but I'm not one hundred percent sure that I'll pronounce it perfectly because because it is not Smith which is I think the only name I can confidently get right all the time Chris. Kempinski is the new CEO. And I think you're right. Yeah I wrote it down phonetically phonetically but worth pointing out that you know they put up. These numbers is a huge company. And they put up these numbers when in the middle of the quarter Steve easterbrook who had been from a business standpoint a successful CEO and certainly from a stock standpoint and he left suddenly and immediately and Credit to Kempinski and his lieutenants for having no time to ramp up as CEO l.. And pulling off this type of horror and we'll see if he can handle it just doesn't smoothly for the next couple of quarters. Yeah they're so so and there is a tendency to give probably my estimation too much credit to CEO Both positively the and negatively at times And we'll see whether McDonalds a an operation owes as much to Easterbrook as would have been thought the case you know this time last year he certainly did a great job and they're in a good position Right now what they're looking at is more for competition from places on breakfast which McCall's got too early while giving more competition to the the chicken sandwich phenomenon That Popeye's got to earlier than The McDonald's so they're rolling out a couple of new chicken sandwiches and they are. I think expecting more competition from Wendy's in the breakfast category so you know a little bit the getting To some competitions You you know. Both sides could and Brad from a headline standpoint starbucks first quarter report KINDA similar to McDonald's in the sense that profits came came in higher than expected they put up global same store sales growth of five percent. That was I think about a half percent higher than was expected and yet shares of starbucks down a couple percentage points and Maybe they're being more aggressive with their guidance. Since with respect to China but if they are it's probably because they need to be. Yeah I think this is where three three now on getting to China being a big part of of today's stories and It is the their fastest growing and I think second largest market and is a major major major contributor to the top and bottom line again when they're shutting down stores which they're doing closing They are losing that money that cash flow and they're not gonNA make it back despite our recommendation that if you have missed some coffee go ahead and drink more the next day right and make sure you're you're you're getting all the health benefits you can. I mean this is this is not make light of the situation but One thing that lives in listening to the Conference Call I. I felt like a little bit. The I thought the did a very good job of just going on again and again again about the partners Being what other places call employees starbucks calls partners and that the starbucks is success was all attributable to the partners and the a special relationships. And all that and and I'm going through as you have and will again the college experience and my feeling going to every single college and hearing their Spiel is what makes that place. Special is the people right and left and I got a little bit of that vibe was through the conference call which you don't typically quickly get There are many. CEO's that Talk about their third grade employees but starbucks is definitely a leader in that category. Oy I agree with that but I referenced. This the other day that I think that how companies doing business in China provide guidance in their earnings report. This quarter is something that bears watching more closely than usual and as a starbucks shareholder. I was happy with the guidance that they gave the clarity. You mentioned Kevin Johnson CEO. I'll also mention Pat Greece Murphy's the CFO just being very clear with analysts analysts about China about closings. Basically saying to the point that Kaminsky made with McDonald's look we're going to update our guidance for for the current quarter and the fiscal year as soon as we possibly can and they're also dealing in an environment where the the state government of China may not necessarily be giving them all the information they want. That is a very real possibility..

"mcdonalds" Discussed on Gastropod

"This was a big issue of debate. And there are a number of anti fast food folks in the nineteen seventies the knees that were suggesting that very few dollars actually stayed within the community. If you think about the way that franchising works you have to pay a lot of administrative fee to the parent company. You are purchasing from predetermined suppliers that are often not local. Your insurance company wasn't necessarily local and so other than payroll and philanthropy. The question of how much actually stayed in the community thirty was a really good question in the Nineteen Seventy S. Some researchers worked out that only about seventeen percent of what an individual McDonald's restaurant spent actually really stayed in the community where it's based the rest went outside back to headquarters and big national vendors so some people said it was time for genuinely black. Owned businesses is businesses born in the communities where they're going to operate time for them to take on McDonald's and the other national fast food chains. Oh they were blown right out of the water in the latter part the book I look at a business called chicken Georgia's that was created by a Baltimore. Man named Ted Holmes who was a believer in black capitalism and had thought about different types of businesses and investments and. He starts this fast food. Chicken restaurant that is quite popular locally chicken. Compassion Joy But he cannot maintain the business and keep up with the competition from KFC and Popeye's big big brands that are able to do things like provide coupons and discounts. And you know. Chicken Georgia's is now one for the archives. Some McDonalds and the other national national chains were usually the only option and of that seventeen percent of their money that stayed in the community. Roughly fifteen percent went to labor costs. One of the great promises of bringing these franchises into the inner city was that they provided jobs. The unemployment rate for African Americans was several times over Unemployment rates for whites entry level. Jobs for teenagers was incredibly hard to find. And so the promise that you could get a pretty good wage job through fast food really resonated in the late sixties. Well for a long time you know before Job became this pejorative term. Working at McDonalds was seen. Culturally is truly honorable thing when you were. You're learning responsibility. You're learning how to operate in a professional setting often as a teenager and atom says. These teen jobs weren't considered great just for the African American community. Oh my God. Everyone is flipping burgers in Nineteen ninety-six. McDonald's estimated that one in every eight Americans had some point worked at McDonalds. One of those was Jeff Bezos. Who is now the richest person in the world? He still brags about cracking eggs on the Saturday shift. At McDonald's Paul Ryan the former former vice presidential candidate and House majority leader talked about washing dishes at McDonald's back when he was a teenager working for pocket get money. And then you have cultural figures Lin. Manuel Miranda Jay Leno. Pink Seal Shania Twain working at McDonalds used to be seen as formative give a stepping stone on the path to somewhere better but at some point that changed job entered the actual formal dictionary in in the late nineteen. Eighteen nineties is a term for sort of dead end job by the nine thousand nine hundred people working in fast food restaurants. Were no longer teenagers. I think it's anywhere between Twenty Six and twenty nine line depending on who you ask. That's the average age of a fast food worker today and that means it's not a teenager learning responsibility for the first time but somebody WHO's trying and to make ends meet and doing so under very difficult conditions and so what previously seen is a ladder opportunity became more of a hamster wheel a hamster wheel without health insurance and without a living wage and without many real opportunities for advancement but it is true that these franchises sizes made some people rich. Ray KROC told reporters that McDonald's had made more African American millionaires than any other company. Certainly those black inner-city franchise owners often got rich But if they wanted to expand and operate restaurants in white neighborhoods that was the no the white franchise owners could operate anywhere. They wanted even in the inner cities. The black owners were segregated into only owning franchises in the inner city. So unlike white owners they had a limit on how much money they could make and Marsha told us that this is kind of reflective of one of the major limitations of the whole black capitalism movement and so it's easy to say. Oh well that's a simple idea. Giving people more opportunities to operate businesses and create jobs. Bob's what's wrong with that. I think the fundamental tension in that idea is that that kind of silence the voices that said well what about integration and instead the move towards black capitalism and black businesses always presupposed and always imagined that these businesses says would operate in hyper segregated environments again limiting opportunity and taking pressure away from governments and society to make any real changes. Still Marsha and Adam agree that within those hyper segregated environments. McDonald's often served as a gathering place. Almost a community center is third places where people would go outside at home and outside of work to hang out to meet up to just be somewhere that wasn't palmer work and socialize. There aren't many places where that happens in modern America. It's a really unique feature fast food because the barrier to access is a cup of coffee and you can hang out for as long as you want. You're not sectioned off by your age. You don't have to travel long distance necessarily and that's how it's come to sort of inhabit this new role in American life whether it's a sort out of a lack of resources libraries and parks and other institutions normally would be attractive has shifted to become fast food food restaurants when it it is sad that that is kind of one of the few places where that happens but if you're looking for the bright spot it's that it's still exists is there are places where people kind of congregate and it's nice. It's nice in a way that if you squint a little bit. It doesn't seem terrible. If you have to. squint that hard. It is actually kind of terrible. It's not just the physical restaurant that ends up playing a central role in the community especially an African American inner city. Neighborhoods where where there weren't a whole lot of resources. Marsha says that McDonald's made everything possible so the first time I ever competed in a quiz bowl competition about African American history they were one of the sponsors and they ensured that we got prizes at this big ceremony at the do Sabato African American History Museum with with the Mayor There is sponsored the American Double Dutch League and the American High School Band and the McDonald's all American Basketball Game Magic Johnson played that game in high school. seculow Neil Michael Jordan Lebron James. If you were a McDonald's all American athlete you're one of the best high school basketball players in the country. This investment in African American high school students is great and and it's also terrible. You don't even have to. squint like Adam says to see that. There's something really wrong with. Having one single Fastfood Company the Fund almost all the sport and culture in a community and function as the community gathering place and provide almost all the jobs too and I'm concerned about that because I think no business should have that kind of impact or that kind of influence or authority in the lives of people who are in struggle and so. I think it's really fascinating the way that fast food has in many ways represented a a lot of the racial economic inequalities intentions in our country. But there's something else at the same time as McDonald's was solidifying their hold over African. The American communities there was a new concern rising about their role in the American Diet and as fast food became more commonplace and became a regular fixture in the diets of Americans broadly but especially of the Hor- the surgeon general and other authorities on health started started to commission studies and they started to realize that America was in the midst of an obesity crisis and the fast food consumption played a big role in that. A lot of those critiques racialist and they were often used as a way to demean or critique the ways that people of color lived and the choices that they made for their children but one of the elements of the conversation that always gets under. My skin is that a lot of these inquiries he's into health disparities often presuppose that certain communities or certain people have an affinity for fast food that there's something natural and and Burgers are delicious and ice cream is good and fries are amazing. I think a lot of people can say that but I think that the way that health researchers I don't consider the larger world in which fast food operates in certain communities that goes beyond on the food. They're missing the long history of racism and lack of opportunities that lead to taxpayers helping fund all those inner-city franchises and to civil rights organizations stations supporting that investment because it was so desperately needed and it was basically the only kind of investment on offer anyway and so that conversation as is it emerged in the eighties and the nineties. I think was very much ignorant of this history and did not want to acknowledge that racism constrains choices and that people make the best choices they can under the various circumstances in which they live of course it. It wasn't only the black community that was being told that fast food was unhealthy for all the reasons marsh mentioned the health community did kind of target that message at the black community but really the whole country was hearing airing that message and so where the fast food companies themselves. My favorite anecdote from this time is that Kentucky Fried Chicken actually shortened its name to KFC in Nineteen Ninety one because fried was such a an F. Word in response to this new health consciousness fast-food chain started offering quote healthy options. Take Donald's famously. Had this Burger that was ninety one percent fat free beef and had seaweed derivative in it..

"For ME GROWING UP IN CHICAGO. McDonald's was always around. We had birthday parties at McDonald's because her apartment was on on the small size I went to McDonald's after work in high school and after school. It was the go-to meal when my mom Um and I were driving far distances and we needed something to eat and so I have probably spent most of my life inside of McDonald's so the fact that I wrote a book about McDonald's. McDonald's is actually not that surprising. This is Marsha chatwin. She's a professor of history and African American studies at Georgetown University and her new book. The book about McDonalds. It's called franchise the Golden Arches in Black America and speaking of the Golden Arches. There's another new book out called drive through dreams. James A Journey through the heart of America's fast-food kingdom it's by journalist. Adam Chandler the Golden Arches are thought to be according to independent survey more recognizable as a symbol. Both then the Christian crosses around the world recognizable or no. I didn't imagine we'd ever focus an entire episode on McDonald's but here we are Dr Together. Adema Marsha Taylor story about McDonald's that is about much more than McDonald's making it perfect for gastropod and we of course our guest repod the podcast. That looks at food through the Lens of science in history. I'm Cynthia Graber and I'm Nikola twilly and this episode. We're getting to the bottom of how McDonald's took over America. The story starts with WHO invented the hamburger burkart. And how did it become so ubiquitous that it gets bigger from there this episode. We're asking his McDonald's basically America's national cuisine and if it is is what can it tell us about who we are as a country less. How did the tax payer ended up funding the spread of McDonald's in the inner cities and why we're civil rights groups on board? Well whatever idea you have of of. How huge fast food is you should double or triple in your mind because the statistics are bonkers? They're completely bananas us. Eighty percent of Americans eat fast food every month. Ninety six percent of them eat fast food every year which is more than the number of Americans that participate participate on the Internet atom. Says there's not a single place in America that eighty percent of Americans go to at least monthly not a library or Jim or any house of worship according according to the Centers for Disease Control which is not happy about this stat. More than a third of American children eat food every day and for the population as the whole. It's roughly the same thirty six percent of us. Eat it every single day.

It isn't unusual but because we're thinking of our historic responsive remember that this isn't isn't the seventies we're a net export of energy products now and so the fact that we're in a very different position when it comes to oil and gas supply allows us take a much more relaxed response to this.

US Right now. Yes I do think that the look we. We are bottoms up. Investors we focus on businesses and companies. But with this industry.

McDonald's is testing crispy chicken sandwich into markets. I'm sorry to report that. Neither of those markets as close to me Houston Texas and Knoxville Tennessee today through the end of January. McDonald's is testing this out. I think if you're a McDonald's shareholder you've gotta it'd be popping the champagne because this is I mean. This is the story of well arguably the story for McDonald's twenty nine thousand nine is the sudden departure of the CEO but but right after that is earlier this year where the independent board of Franchisees send the letter to management saying priority number one is a southern style. crispy chicken sandwich so we can compete with chick-fil-a and now Popeye's and well done franchisees because they appear beginning their wish. Well done if it's well done because chick-fil-a sets a pretty high bar. I have not tried the Popeye's chicken sandwich because I'm not going to wait in line for the chicken sandwich any any more than the normal amount of time. You wait in line for chicken sandwich but McDonald's has to get this right and the reality is they've struck out with premium. Chicken sandwiches sandwiches. They also have not done a particularly good job in the past decade since I was a kid with event launches remember when it used to. I'd be like it's the Olympics and like McDonalds have they were the sort of original pioneer in that seasonal exciting special offering. And it really petered out. I mean they did that. The whole international menu earlier this year and few weren't driving by McDonald's you didn't ever really good sense of what was going on so I do think this is good but the sandwich you better be good and that's not always easy to pull off. Yeah I'm I'm trying to remember who it was but Someone maybe it was Burger King someone in the last year or two a rolled out a new product that had been field tested. And it hasn't really worked. I think a great example would be Caso Kepala other ego where where they did a lot of tests and that's what it was. It was just because now it works but the first time they're like. Hey we tested it in these markets and we're ready for the roll rollout and nationally. It was a loss in my opinion. They asked some of the wrong questions. Because people like the taste but there was an expectation for appearance. Appearance with K so that it it still doesn't deliver on so they were kind of missing the mark and I don't think McDonald's will do that but tastes or subjective. Do you really. You believe the Popeye's chicken sandwich is better than like a chicken sandwich at a nice restaurant that does chicken sandwiches probably not but people have gone mad for it so it becomes a viral thing and and more a status symbol than necessarily the quality of the chicken sandwich. I absolutely agree with you that they need to get this right but I also think that they don't need for the sandwich to be the best they don't need it to be better than Chick-fil-a they just needed to be good enough. So that that particularly on Sundays when every chick-fil-a is close people. Say All right. I'll go to McDonald's for that. I feel like if you're a McDonald's you should really just google. How do I make tick Philip Chicken Sandwich because you can do that? You could find all the fast food and different ways to make it at home and that really should be your flavor profile and what you're going for. I'm not saying copy. Get a hundred percent. Exactly maybe ninety eight percent exactly. But there's clearly a standard for this and Chick-fil-a has created reputation that it's a premium product which people will pay a premium price for. McDonald's has struggled with premium price. So they may have to deliver premium product at a pretty good but not premium price. So it's a bit of a tight rope but yeah if they can make this work. I think it'll be a driving. Hit for them before we wrap up. It's been a tradition on this show starting back in two thousand fifteen started by our producer extraordinaire. Dan Boyd that the holiday music that appears on the radio increasingly earlier in the year. We don't begrudge the radio stations for doing that because that makes them money. That's one and it was early. I think it was early November a station here in DC had flipped to the holiday format and one of my kids is. Why do they do that? And I said because it makes money. That's quite simply. Why don't begrudge them doing that? What we judge them is the fact that it's the same fifty the songs and there's so much great holiday music out there so we took it upon ourselves on this humble little podcast to replace our standard in closing music with a different song for the month of December each day? A different song to you. Know to sort of broaden the horizons of us and the dozens of listeners because again there's so much great holiday music out there so many artists that you wouldn't necessarily here on the radio so it's a little it's a little public service campaign and it starts today looking for Christmas segregation from the Jewish guy sitting across the table. What we do want to go with Christmas in Hollis? Could we walk me break out a little run DMC what Christmas. That's one of the. That's one of the fifty. They get played on the radio. Although I will say. That's actually a good. He's a good song. But you know I suggested before maybe something from the new letters to Cleo EP. which is a Christmas album? We'll check the Austin band where Botha fans of but we But we also so Mix It up when it's Hanukkah we play Hanukkah tunes so so we'll see that's going to be happening all month long but unfortunately Klein is not going to be here all next week. You can find him somewhere in the Carolinas. Doing a little boots on the ground research and casino. Thanks for being here. It's always good talking to you as always people on the program may have interest in stocks.
