"Stephanie Hughes was talking a minute ago about corporate brands and how important they can be forget just for business, but for bigger picture stuff too. Geopolitics, once again, is what I'm thinking about here. You don't find too many brands too much more wrapped up in geopolitics than McDonald's. The burger chain has temporarily closed its 850 stores in Russia, but back in the day, it was one of the first American brands to set up shop in Moscow. Marketplace is Kristen Schwab takes us back. It's the winter of 1990 in the Soviet Union. It's cold, it's dark, food supply is unreliable. And in the middle of Moscow's pushkin square, the golden arches are glowing. And it was this oasis. Brightly lit, colorful, at the time, Eileen Kane was an American studying at Moscow state university. Now she teaches modern Russian history at Connecticut college. She says she ate McDonald's a few times a week because there wasn't always enough food at her dorm. Her American dollars made McDonald's accessible, but for the average Russian, buying a Big Mac was a stretch. You would see people standing in line, you know, wearing fur coats, you know, beautifully made up on a date. It was an outing. At the time, eating out in Russia was such a luxury that McDonald's was among some people's first experiences at a restaurant. Konstantin sonin grew up in Russia and was 18 at the time. He teaches political economics at the University of Chicago. During his first visit to McDonald's, he got French fries. He says the fast food chain was unlike anything the Soviet Union had experienced before. It was clean, the service was friendly, and the packaging was all styrofoam, paper, and plastic. Plastic bags were a kind of a very rare thing, so everything disposable was an unusual thing, and unusual concept. He says, even though Russians had an anti American attitude, they looked at McDonald's with so much hope. They've been looking at this as a window to just a different world. It was certainly beginning of a happier rusher. True, McDonald's wasn't affordable, but it felt democratic. For instance, it only accepted rubles while many other restaurants prioritized more valuable forms of currency, and it helped Russians feel like change was coming. The Soviet Union dissolved just two years later. Miguel centeno is a Professor of sociology at Princeton and has studied globalization by mapping McDonald's. We forget 30 years ago, McDonald's was a symbol of modernity. And that you have enough of an economy enough of a society to be able to sustain it. And sustain it they did, growing to 850 locations. Konstantin sonin says McDonald's decision to temporarily close them earlier this month is a big blow. I think a lot of people consider this explicitly as the country moving backwards. Sonin says those who weren't alive back then are getting a peek at what living in Russia was like during the.

"Jacob charcot and Noah Robertson. At a time when the world seemed on the brink of nuclear war, our SAS diplomat found hope in an unlikely place. Peter bridges arrived the United States embassy in Moscow in 1962. Weeks before the Cuban missile crisis. He was a political officer, tasked with reporting on the secretive Soviet scene. Tensions were high, but a U.S. USSR cultural exchange led to an invitation to a party at Moscow state university. The room at MGU was surely bugged, Peter wrote, but it was so noisy that hidden microphones were useless. Two men, students at the faculty of law approached Peter. Where will you work, Peter asked them? We will join the procured Torah they replied. Peter said he was sorry to hear that. The prosecutor general's office had played a key role in Stalin's purges. It's then leader had commanded a notorious prison camp. The men said they would make the procurator better, more humane. Peter was skeptical. That's dangerous, he said. No, they replied. We will work carefully and slowly. And there are others like us. Peter wished them well. Peter doesn't know what happened to those men. He learned years later that they'd had a predecessor in the faculty of law. Mikhail Gorbachev, who changed Russia so profoundly. I could not have predicted Gorbachev, Peter wrote, but I never forgot those students. They gave me hope. You can find Peter's full first person essay in today's issue. Now, commentary from the monitor's editorial board on the Taliban. 5 months after the Taliban took over Afghanistan, the country has become the world's worst humanitarian crisis about half of its 40 million people are hungry with dire forecasts for the winter. In response, both the United States and United Nations announced major relief efforts on Tuesday. The U.S. will give 308 million in new humanitarian aid, while the UN made a global appeal for $4.4 billion in assistance. Yet the big news may be this after taking stock of the Taliban's harsh style of rule, both the U.S. and UN vowed to bypass the new government and work directly with independent humanitarian groups. The aid will be distributed based on listening to the priorities of local Afghans. This bottom up pro women approach may help prevent the U.S. and UN from working directly with the morally suspect regime and prevent aid money from being diverted to the Taliban's purposes. It could also allow Afghans to follow local norms of self governance challenging the Taliban's top down authoritarian rule. That's a wrap for the news. You can find the full length versions of these stories in today's issue or at CS monitor dot com slash daily. Thanks for joining us today. Come back tomorrow. Our Fred weir has put a lot of effort into exploring the moods, views, and preferences of young Russians who've grown up knowing only Vladimir Putin as leader. From Moscow, Fred reports on what's so different about the Putin generation..

"Few moments. But first, I want to take a little time to talk to you as much as I would to any group of university students in the United States. I want to talk not just to the realities of today, but of the possibilities of tomorrow. Standing here before a mural of your revolution, I want to talk about a very different revolution that is taking place right now. Quietly sweeping the globe without bloodshed or conflict. Its effects are peaceful. But they will fundamentally alter our world, shatter old assumptions and reshape our lives. It's easy to underestimate, because it's not accompanied by banners or fanfare. It's been called the technological or information revolution. And as its emblem, one might take the tiny silicon chip. No bigger than a fingerprint. One of these chips has more computing power than a room full of old style computers. As part of an exchange program, we now have an exhibition touring your country that shows how information technology is transforming our lives. Replacing manual labor with robots, forecasting weather for farmers or mapping the genetic code of DNA for medical researchers. These micro computers today aid the design of everything from houses to cars to spacecraft. They even designed better and faster computers. They can translate English into Russian or enable the blind to read or help Michael Jackson produce on one synthesizer, the sounds of a whole orchestra. Linked by a network of satellites and fiber optic cables, one individual, with a desktop computer and a telephone, commands resources unavailable to the largest governments just a few years ago. Like a chrysalis, we're emerging from the economy of the industrial revolution. An economy confined to unlimited by the earth's physical resources into as one economist titled his book the economy in mind. In which there are no bounds on human imagination. And the freedom to create is the most precious, natural resource. Think of that little computer chip. It's value isn't in the sand from which it is made. But in the microscopic architecture, designed into it by a genius human minds. Or take the example of the satellite, relaying this broadcast around the world. Which replaces thousands of tons of copper mined from the earth and molded into wire. In the new economy, human invention increasingly makes physical resources obsolete. We are breaking through the material conditions of existence to a world where man creates his own destiny. Even as we explore the most advanced reaches of science, we're returning to the age old wisdom of our culture. A wisdom contained in the book of the genesis in the Bible. In the beginning, was the spirit. And it was from this spirit that the material abundance of creation issued forth. But progress is not for ordained. The key is freedom, freedom of thought, freedom of information, freedom of communication. The renowned scientist, scholar and founding father of this university. Mikhail lomonosov knew that. It is common knowledge, he said that the achievements of science are considerable and rapid, particularly once the yoke of slavery is cast off and replaced by the freedom of philosophy. You know, one of the first contacts between your country and mine took place between Russia and American explorers. The Americans were members of cook's last voyage on an expedition searching for an Arctic passage. On the island of unalaska, they came upon the Russians who took them in and together with the native inhabitants held a prayer service on the ice. The explorers of the modern era are the entrepreneurs, men with vision, with the courage to take risks and faith enough to brave the unknown. These entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States. They are the prime movers of the technological revolution. In fact, one of the largest personal computer firms in the United States was started by two college students, no older than you, in the garage behind their home. Some people, even in my own country, look at the riot of experiment that is the free market and see only waste. What of all the entrepreneurs that fail? Well, many do, particularly, the successful ones often several times. And if you ask in the secret of their success, they'll tell you it's all that they learned in their struggles along the way. Yes, it's what they learned from failing. Like an athlete in competition, or a scholar in pursuit of the truth. Experience is the greatest teacher. And that's why it's so hard for government planners, no matter how sophisticated to ever substitute for millions of individuals working night and day to make their dreams come true. The fact is, bureaucracies are a problem around the world. There's an old story about a town it could be anywhere with a bureaucrat who was known to be a good for nothing, but he somehow had always hung on to power. So one day, in a town meeting, an old woman got up and said to him, there is a folk legend here where I come from. But when a baby is born, an angel comes down from heaven and kisses it on one part of its body. If the angel kisses him on his hand, he becomes a handyman. If he kisses him on his forehead, he becomes bright and clever. And I have been trying to figure out where the angel kissed you so that you should sit there for so long and do nothing. We are seeing the power of economic freedom spreading around the world. Places such as the republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, have vaulted into the technological era, barely pausing in the industrial age along the way. Low tax agricultural policies in the subcontinent mean that in some years India is now a next a net exporter of food. Perhaps most exciting are the winds of chains that are blowing over the People's Republic of China. Where one quarter of the world's population is now getting its first taste of economic freedom. At the same time, the growth of democracy has become one of the most powerful political movements of our age. In Latin America, in the 1970s, only a third of the population lived under democratic government. Today, over 90% does. In the Philippines, in the republic of Korea, free contested democratic elections are the order of the day. Throughout the world, free markets are the model for growth, democracy is the standard by which governments are mission. We Americans make no secret of our belief in freedom. In fact, it's something of a national pastime. Every four years, the American people choose a new president in 1988 is one of those years. At one point, there were 13 major candidates running in the two major parties, not to mention all the others, including the socialist and libertarian candidates, all trying to get my job. About a thousand local television stations, 8500 radio stations, and 1700 daily newspapers, each won an independent private enterprise, fiercely independent of the government, report on the candidates, grill them interviews and bring them together for debates. In the end, the people vote, they decide who will be the next president. But freedom doesn't begin her end with elections. Go to any American town to take just an example. And you'll see dozens of churches representing many different beliefs in many places, synagogues and mosques, and you will see families of every conceivable nationality worshiping together. Go into any schoolroom, and there you will see children being taught the Declaration of Independence that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. Among them life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that no government can justly deny. A guarantees in their constitution for freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of religion go into any courtroom and there will provide preside and independent judge beholden to no government power. There, every defendant has the right to a trial by a jury of his peers, usually 12 men and women, common citizens. They are the ones the only ones who weigh the evidence and decide on guilt or innocence. In that court, the accused is innocent until proven guilty. And the word of a policeman or any official has no greater legal standing than the word of the accused. Go to any university campus, and there you'll find an open sometimes heated discussion of the problems in American society and what can be done to correct them. Turn on the television, and you will see the legislature conducting the business of government right there before the camera debating and voting on the legislation that will become the law of the land. Marching any demonstration and there are many of them. The people's right of assembly is guaranteed in the constitution and protected by the police. Go into any union hall where the members know their right to strike is protected by law. As a matter of fact, one of the many jobs I had before this one was being president of a union, the screen actors guild. I led my union out on strike and I'm proud to say we won. But freedom is more even than this. Freedom is the right to question and change the established way of doing things. It is a continuing revolution of the marketplace. It is the understanding that allows us to recognize shortcomings and seek solutions. It is the right to put forth an idea. Scoffed at by the experts. And watch it catch fire among the people. It is the right to stick to dream to follow your dream or stick to your conscience, even if you're the only one in a sea of doubters. Freedom is the recognition that no single person, no single authority or government has a monopoly on the truth. But that every individual life is infinitely precious that every one of us put on this world has been put there for a reason and has something to offer. America is a nation made up of hundreds of nationalities. Our ties to you are more than ones of good feelings. Their ties of kinship in America you'll find Russians, Armenians, Ukrainians, peoples from Eastern Europe and Central Asia. They come from every part of this vast continent. From every continent to live in harmony, seeking a place where each cultural heritage is respected, each is valued for its diverse strengths and beauties and the richness it brings to our lives. Recently, a few individuals and families have been allowed to visit relatives in the west. We can only hope that it won't be long. Before all are allowed to do so, and Ukrainian Americans, Baltic Americans, Armenian Americans can freely visit their homelands, just as this Irish American visits his. Freedom, it has been said, makes people selfish and materialistic. But Americans are one of the most religious peoples on earth. Because they know that liberty, just as life itself is not earned, but a gift from God. They seek to share that gift with the world. Reason and experience said George Washington in his farewell address both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. And it is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. Democracy is less a system of government than it is a system to keep government limited, unintrusive, a system of constraints and power to keep politics and government secondary to the important things in life, the true sources of value found only in family and faith. But I hope you know, I go on about these things, not simply to extol the virtues of my own country. But to speak to the true greatness of the heart and soul of your land, who, after all, needs to tell the land of about the quest for truth. The home of Kandinsky and scriabin about imagination, the rich and noble culture of the Uzbek man of letters, Ali share. About beauty and heart. The great culture of your diverse land speaks with a glowing passion to all humanity. Let me cite one of the most eloquent contemporary passages on human freedom. It comes not from the literature of America. But from this country, from one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, Boris Pasteur, in the novel, doctor zhivago. He writes, I think that if the beast who sleeps in man could be held down by threats, any kind of threat, whether of jail or of retribution after death, then the highest emblem of humanity would be the lion tamer in the circus with his whip. Not the prophet, who sacrificed himself, but this is just the point. What has for centuries raised men above the meat beast is not the cudgel. But an inward music, the irresistible power of unarmed truth. The irresistible power of unarmed truth today, the world looks expectantly to signs of change. Steps toward greater freedom in the Soviet Union, we watch as and we hope as we see positive changes taking place. There are some I know in your society who fear that change will bring only disruption and discontinuity who fear to embrace the hope of the future. Sometimes it takes faith. It's like that scene in the cowboy movie, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid, which some here in Moscow recently had a chance to see. The posse is closing in and the two outlaws. Butch and Sundance, who find themselves trapped on the edge of a cliff with a sheer drop of hundreds of feet to the raging rapids below. Butch turns to Sundance and says they're only hope is to jump into the river below. But Sundance refuses. He says he'd rather fight it out with the posse. Even though they're hopelessly outnumbered, Bush says that suicide, an urges him to jump, but Sundance still refuses, and finally admits, I can't swim. But which breaks up laughing and says you're crazy, fool. The fall will probably kill you. By the way, both Butch and Sundance made it. In case you didn't see the movie. I think what I've just been talking about is para Stryker and what is goals are. The change would not mean rejection of the past, like a tree growing strong through the seasons, rooted in the earth and drawing life from the sun, so too positive change must be rooted in traditional values. In the land in culture and family and community, and it must take its life from the eternal things from the source of all life, which is faith. Such change will lead to new understandings, new opportunities, to a broader future in which the tradition is not supplanted. It finds its full flowering. That is the future beckoning to your generation. At the same time, we should remember that reform that is not institutionalized will always be insecure. Such freedom will always be looking over its shoulder, a bird on a tether. No matter how long the rope can always be pulled back, and that is why in my conversation with general secretary Gorbachev, I have spoken of how important it is to institutionalize change to put guarantees on reform. And we've been talking together about one sad reminder of a divided world. The Berlin Wall. It's time to remove the barriers that keep people apart. I'm proposing an increased exchange program of high school students between our countries. General secretary Gorbachev mentioned on Sunday, a wonderful phrase you have in Russian for this better to see something once than to hear about it a hundred times. Mister Gorbachev and I first began working on this in 1985. In our discussion today, we agreed on working up to several thousand exchanges a year from each country in the near future. But not everyone can travel across the continents and oceans. Words travel lighter, and that's why we'd like to make available to this country more of our 11,000 magazines and periodicals. And our television and radio shows that can be beamed off a satellite in seconds. Nothing would please us more than for the Soviet people to get to know us better and to understand our way of life. Just a few years ago, few would have imagined the progress our two nations have made together. The INF treaty, which general secretary, Gorbachev, and I signed last December in Washington, and whose instruments of ratification we would exchange tomorrow. The first true nuclear arms reduction treaty in history, calling for the elimination of an entire class of U.S. and Soviet nuclear missiles. And just 16 days ago, we saw the beginning of your withdrawal from Afghanistan, which gives us hope that soon the fighting may end and the healing may begin. And that that suffering country may find self determination unity and peace at long last. It's my fervent hope that our constructive cooperation on these issues will be carried on to address the continuing destruction of conflicts in many regions of the globe. And that the serious discussions that led to the Geneva accords on Afghanistan will help lead the solutions in Southern Africa, Ethiopia, Cambodia, the Persian Gulf and Central America. I have often said nations do not distrust each other because they are armed. They are armed because they distrust each other. If this globe is to live in peace and prosper, if it is to embrace all the possibilities of the technological revolution, then nations must renounce once and for all, the right to an expansionist foreign policy. Peace between nations must be an enduring goal, not a tactical stage in a continuing conflict. I've been told that there's a popular song in your country, perhaps you know it. Who's evocative refrain asks the question do the Russians want a war? In answer, it says, go ask that silence, lingering in the air above the birch and popular there. Beneath those trees, the soldiers lie. Go ask my mother, ask my wife. Then you will have to ask no more. Do the Russians want a war. But what have your one time allies? What of those inbred who embraced you on the elbe? What if we to ask the watery graves of the Pacific or the European battlefields where America's fallen were buried far from home? What if we were to ask their mothers, sisters and sons? Do Americans want war? Ask us to and you will find the same answer. The same longing and every heart. People do not make wars, governments do. And no mother would ever ever willingly sacrifice her sons for territorial gain for economic advantage for ideology. A people free to choose will always choose peace. Americans seek always to make Friends of old antagonists. After a colonial revolution with Britain, we have cemented for all ages the ties of kinship between our nations. After a terrible Civil War between north and south, we healed our wounds and found true unity as a nation. We fought two world wars in my lifetime against Germany and one with Japan. But now the federal republic of Germany and Japan are two of our closest allies and friends. Some people point to the trade disputes between us as a sign of strain. But they're the frictions of all families and the family of free nations is a big and vital and sometimes boisterous one. I can tell you that nothing would please my heart more than in my lifetime to see American and Soviet diplomats grappling with the problem of trade disputes between America and a growing exuberant exporting Soviet Union that had opened up to economic freedom and growth. And as important as these official people to people exchanges are nothing would please me more than for them to become unnecessary. To see travel between east and west become so routine that university students in the Soviet Union could take a month off in the summer and just like students in the west do now put packs on their backs and travel from country to country in Europe and with barely a passport check in between. Nothing would please me more than to see the day that a concert promoter in say England could call up a Soviet rock group without going through any government agency and have them playing in Liverpool, the next night. Is this just a dream, perhaps, but it is a dream that is our responsibility to have come true, your generation is living in one of the most exciting, hopeful times in Soviet history. It is a time when the first breath of freedom stirs the air. And the heart beats to the accelerated rhythm of hope. When the accumulated spiritual energies of a long silence, yearn to break free, I am reminded of the famous passage near the end of Google's dead soil souls. Comparing his nation to a speeding tracker, Google asks what will be its destination. But he writes, there was no answer, save the bell pouring forth marvelous sound. We do not know what the conclusion of this will be of this journey. But we're hopeful that the promise of reform will be fulfilled. In this Moscow spring, this May 1988, we may be allowed that hope. That freedom like the fresh green sampling planted over Tolstoy's grave will blossom forth at last in the rich fertile soil of your people and culture. We may be allowed to hope that the marvel of sound of a new openness will keep rising through, ringing through, leading to a new world of reconciliation, friendship, and peace. Thank you all very much and blago slap it..

It is the right to stick to dream to follow your dream or stick to your conscience, even if you're the only one in a sea of doubters. Freedom is the recognition that no single person, no single authority or government has a monopoly on the truth. But that every individual life is infinitely precious that every one of us put on this world has been put there for a reason and has something to offer. America is a nation made up of hundreds of nationalities. Our ties to you are more than ones of good feelings. Their ties of kinship in America you'll find Russians, Armenians, Ukrainians, peoples from Eastern Europe and Central Asia. They come from every part of this vast continent. From every continent to live in harmony, seeking a place where each cultural heritage is respected, each is valued for its diverse strengths and beauties and the richness it brings to our lives. Recently, a few individuals and families have been allowed to visit relatives in the west. We can only hope that it won't be long. Before all are allowed to do so, and Ukrainian Americans, Baltic Americans, Armenian Americans can freely visit their homelands, just as this Irish American visits his. Freedom, it has been said, makes people selfish and materialistic. But Americans are one of the most religious peoples on earth. Because they know that liberty, just as life itself is not earned, but a gift from God. They seek to share that gift with the world. Reason and experience said George Washington in his farewell address both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. And it is substantially true that virtue or.

"Reagan rose to the presidency as America's foremost anti communist. In 1964, he referred to communism as, quote, the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind in his long climb from the swamp to the stars. In his first term as president, he called the Soviet Union, the evil empire, and his buildup and hardline policy led people around the world to fear that he would provoke a third World War. And yet on March 31st, 1988, the world was greeted with an unlikely image. Ronald Reagan, giving a speech in Moscow state university, directly underneath a bust of communist icon Vladimir Lenin. Several months earlier, Reagan had signed the INF treaty with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, eliminating an entire class of nuclear weapons. And now here he was at the heart of the Soviet Union. Speaking directly to those from whom he described as the evil empire. For Reagan, the Soviet Union was changing, and it was no longer evil, but a country shedding its authoritarian past and embracing the possibilities of the future. The possibilities of freedom. In this speech, Reagan was less than a year away from the end of his presidency, and leaving with a sense of accomplishment. A sense that his partnership with Gorbachev was ending the Cold War. And this was a precious opportunity. It was a chance to speak with students. At one of the Soviet Union's major universities, a chance to influence future generations of Russian leaders. As he listened to the speech, note how Reagan spoke of the incredible opportunities, technology presented. It's easy to forget that Reagan had lived through incredible change. During his lifetime, he saw scientists and engineers split the atom and land men on the moon. Notice how he discusses technological progress, and.

"This is morning edition from NPR news I'm Debbie Elliott in orange beach Alabama And I'm Stevens keep in Washington D.C. President Biden's choice to be a top banking regulator withdrew her nomination Sally Amaro faced opposition from Republicans and skepticism from some Democrats Some lawmakers had sincere disagreements with their academic research and a few went right on to suggest that she's a communist because this U.S. citizen was born in the former Soviet Union And pierce David gera is here David good morning Morning Steve why was Saleh amarok and nominated in the first place Well she's a Cornell University law professor and expert on financial regulation and she's also been a pretty prolific academic researcher President Biden picked a to be the next comptroller of the currency which is an important job the office of the comptroller of the currency overseas about a thousand banks nationwide including some of the big ones but also many smaller community banks Roof has had the support of progressives because in her research Steve she's proposed some pretty bold ideas to remake the U.S. financial system and she's always been an advocate for a tougher approach to regulating banks but many other lawmakers saw those views as quote too radical The weeks wore on Amarillo's path to confirmation seemed to get more and more difficult especially some Democrats expressed hesitation So she decided to call it quits She wrote a letter of The White House that was released on Tuesday in which she wrote quote it is no longer tenable for me to continue as a presidential nominee What exactly did she write about that seemed too radical for some senators Yeah let's dig into that academic research Some of what Sally Amaro has proposed is pretty provocative She's characterized one controversial paper of hers as quote a blueprint for a comprehensive restructuring of the core architecture of modern finance She suggests the Federal Reserve could get into the business of retail banking The Americans could open bank accounts with the Federal Reserve partly to reduce the number of people who don't have bank accounts Now Republican lawmakers along with several banking groups suggested that by advancing that argument I'm arova is someone who wants to nationalize the U.S. banking sector She denied that during a contentious confirmation hearing a few weeks ago if it tried to make a distinction between arguments she's made as an academic and what she would do if she were making policy by emphasizing she would always follow the letter of the law Here's what omarosa said to senator Patrick to me the ranking member of the banking committee I just want to clarify my job as an academic was to expand the boundaries of the academic debate and outline potential options for Congress to consider This is entirely up to Congress whether or not to go that Sure of course ultimately That's several lawmakers Steve including senator toomey didn't seem to think that distinction that omarova was making made much of a difference Well some of these are classic debates does a public servant follow the law and do their job or follow their personal beliefs for example and what kind of banking sector do you really want That seems like a legitimate subject of debate but it seems to me the confirmation battle went beyond that Yeah it got pretty ugly at times Steve salama is a U.S. citizen as you mentioned she was born in the former Soviet Union and what's now Kazakhstan she got her undergraduate degree from Moscow state university And in a dramatic exchange during that confirmation hearing Republican senator John Kennedy asked omarova about her upbringing and her beliefs I don't mean any disrespect I don't know whether to call you professor or comrade Oh my goodness Senator I'm not a communist I do not subscribe to that ideology I could not choose where I was born President Biden and his statement said Amarillo was quote subjected to inappropriate personal attacks that were far beyond the pale the chairman of the banking committee echoed that democratic senator sherrod Brown of Ohio Saddam arova was the subject of a relentless smear campaign reminiscent of red scare mccarthyism Steve and powerful interests as he put it shamefully attacked her family her heritage and her commitment to American ideals I'm just dwelling on the first words by senator Kennedy there I don't mean any disrespect he said and then went on to say what he said So what happens now We'll press and bind to continue to work to find a nominee for this position Look the administration's ideal candidate is someone who could help advance its regulatory agenda who could try to rein in banks who could reduce the number of Americans who are unbanked who don't have bank accounts basically Steve they're looking for someone who has these progressive bona fides but can also get confirmed by the Congress David thanks for the update Really appreciate it Thank you Steve The NPR's David giraffe For many families in Vermont it wouldn't be the holidays without a trip to white's Christmas tree farm in the town of Essex It's the classic cut your own tree place But this year Vermont Christmas tree farmers are struggling to keep up with demand here's Michaela of frack with member station here at white's visitors browse the fields of fir trees and pick the perfect one to chop down Then they fold it back on orange sleds and hoist them onto their cars But this year owner bob white is closing his business earlier than usual Last year demand for trees spiked with more people staying home during the pandemic So farmers cut down more trees than they usually do That means fewer mature trees in the fields this year White tried to buy pre cut trees from big farms to supplement his cut your own crop I would have loved to have a couple thousand I bought zero Zero They were all sold out Jane Murray is with Murray hill farm another of the 70 or so Christmas tree farms in Vermont Nutty right now I mean I have a friend in Texas They just bought the same one that we would solve for $45 They just spent a $180 on it The Pacific Northwest is the biggest producer of Christmas trees in the country This summer's heat and drought ruined much of the crop there That's part of the reason why trees from small farms like the ones in Vermont are selling for such high prices Jane Murray knows a wholesaler who sold all his trees.

"Omarova Born in the Soviet Union she had to be a member of the youth Leninist communist group She had no choice she reaches a certain age and then she's no longer a member She's no longer obviously a citizen of the Soviet Union And she testifies under oath I am not a communist In charade Brown a punk at puke putrid in every respect An American Marxist if there ever was one out of Ohio comes to her defense Now the other day I play two clips for you of Soleil Amaro And this is from March 2021 long after she left the Soviet Union Long after she was in the Lenin communist youth group March 2021 the woman who would be excuse me the birthing person who would be the head the comptroller of the currency for God's sakes And by the way the Biden administration couldn't find anyone better in the entire country for this slot Nobody better Cut 22 ago Traveled industries and firms that are in transitioning And here I'm thinking about this primarily call industry and oil and gas industry A lot of the smaller players in that industry are going to probably go bankrupt in short order at least We want them to go bankrupt if we want to tackle climate change Cut 23 go To imagine what would it be like if instead of being just the public option for deposit banking this would be actually the full transition In other words there will be no more private bank deposit accounts and all of the deposit accounts will be held directly at the fed So there'd be no more private banking Everybody would do their banking with the federal government via the fed That sounds like the communist manifesto to me Go ahead Interesting implications from that thought experiment For example with the much more direct and proactive tools of monetary policy like helicopter money which is considered radical primarily because economists really do not know how to manage the issue of what will happen in the inflationary environment when the Central Bank needs to contract the supply of money Now stop I want you to listen very very carefully to the following Go Politically feasible for the central Bert to effectively take money away from people's accounts Do you understand what she's saying there What would happen in an inflationary environment When the Central Bank needs to contract the supply of money that is the fed How is it politically feasible for the Central Bank the fed to effectively take money away from people's accounts You see because your accounts are in private banks right now ladies and gentlemen The fed it's not feasible for taking money away from your private accounts without there being a record But what if your private accounts were no longer private and all of the deposit accounts would be held directly at the fed I'm quoting all of the deposit accounts would be held directly at the fed She sang if all of the accounts are held directly by the fed the fed can reduce the amount of money you have in your own accounts Because the fed would control your accounts In other words she wants to federalize your accounts It's the only way That's March 2021 That's less than a year ago She makes this statement it's on Twitter for all the goons and the leftists in the marxists the hacks in the Biden administration to hear They well know this is her view The question is or how many of these so called moderate Democrat senators Are going to vote for this Like Warner from Virginia I came from Virginia They poses moderates And a host of many many more What are they going to do They can evoke for her Because they agree with her This must be mccarthyism More senator John Kennedy

"To the weekend edition of Bloomberg businessweek It was to say the least another busy week of earnings as we come down the stretch of 2021 No I had on the program We're going to talk to a pair of executives who enjoyed strong quarters speaking of earnings and even more success on the horizon That's what they're saying It's chipotle's CEO Brian nickel also enon cries Mattel's CEO Talking tacos and toys toys and tacos Say that 5 times fast Both of those companies impacted in different ways by rising prices and supply chain constraints will also speak with the CEO of AT&T business about the fight to acquire and retain top talent and why 5G is ready to change the game in every corner of the economy I have 5G already I don't Sorry Yeah I got that old iPhone X Got to work on that Maybe under the tree this year right If the supply chain can figure it out Well a record year for mergers and acquisitions to the tune of a cool $5 trillion also a group of ESG nay sayers You spoke to them Carol They're making their voices heard And the most critical moment for the American worker since the 1940s we are talking the labor movement it's our domestic cover story It is indeed all that straight ahead we begin now with a look at this week's issue of Bloomberg businessweek and specifically our international cover story which is a look at the struggles of working women in 15 of the world's top business cities It was also a Bloomberg big take this week And it's a story in the solutions section of the magazine Ruth David and Adam blunt Ford wrote it It ranks the performance of these hubs in 5 areas that relate to structural and social challenges facing women including safety mobility maternity equality and health Yeah exactly Looking at what is going on in a lot of top business cities And specifically they really talk about the abduction of Sarah everard from a London street in March by a police officer raped and murdered the 30 year old marketing executive spread of furious ephor encapsulated by one refrain on social media She was just walking home and so talking about women we so often talk on a right to him about women moving up the corporate ladder and having access in terms of those senior positions trying to make inroads And yet when it comes just to basic safety of women walking around in our major cities it's lacking big time That's what's particularly surprising I think to many people who saw this story were data company Bloomberg and we love numbers And this takes a data and analytics approach to ranking 15 cities Toronto topping a list with the highest overall score Beijing and São Paulo the worst Yeah exactly European capitals such as Berlin Paris and London squad high because of strong maternity and legal rights What was interesting it was a scale of one to 5 on those 5 criteria that you mentioned safety mobility maternity quality and health and yet none of them scored really high on all of it Right not a lot of fours if any in there Meanwhile we mentioned earnings at the top One of the tech giants to report this past week was Facebook a lot of news for the company including a name change Facebook announcing on Thursday that it's rebranding itself as meta as it goes all in on the metaverse Before that though as I mentioned a lot of news on Facebook this week there was a Bloomberg report that the company had kept investors in the dark about falling usage among teens on their platform Kurt Wagner had a hand in breaking that story He also wrote a piece in this week's technology section of the magazine that goes into the social network's next chapter We are talking the metaverse No I believe you have to say the matter I mean I'm still trying to figure out what it is Yeah I know you're shaking your head at me Your eyes are wide and you're like I know A lot of investors are trying to figure out what it is as well I think a lot of people understand the metaverse and the context of gaming Roblox for example is sort of a go to But how does Facebook bring it to sort of productivity and especially monetize it if they're thinking about the next generation for the social network Which by the way is closer to 20 years old than it is to ten years old Monetizing the metabolism That's what it's about There's a must read feature by Priya Anand and Mark Berg and about a company called go guardian The leading developer of education at tech software also known as EdTech in the biz Yeah absolutely You're so cool What it really amounts to though is educational surveillance software and it turns out the pandemic we know this we saw this during COVID-19 the schools being shut down The pandemic revitalizing the EdTech industry's push to get more digital technology into the classroom and much like our smartphones these programs know exactly exactly what students are doing at all times Well for more than a decade Silicon Valley entrepreneurs have been pushing digital technologies in public schools At the same time though they're struggling to explain how exactly they were helping students Yeah exactly COVID forced even the more reluctant schools to finally embrace digital learning tools that have continued to be central to classrooms even as schools have reopened back in person Go guardian allows school administrators to watch everything students are doing on their laptops and tablets Have a little creepy It does Sorry It's this constant battle tug of war that we have with technology Look what it can do for us There's just so much ease so much information but at the same time all that information we're wondering about our privacy what are we giving up as a result Privacy and I also wonder about the relationship between students and administrators when it comes to trust and how much responsibility they're putting on students We're not putting on students They're really really good point And then in the finance section of the magazine this week a story from Robert Schmidt and Jesse Westbrook it's about a government post that we don't often think about It sounds like a snoozer snoozer Can I say that We're talking about the position of the comptroller of the currency It's a very important one It is and President Biden's nominee for the position is turning out to be well a really divisive one Sally Amaro is a Kazakhstan born graduate of Moscow state university The recipient of a VI Lenin scholarship some Republican lawmakers have gone so far as to call her a Marxist Yeah exactly A lot of controversy and this is why it's not a snoozer of a story It's a really important one She'll have a lot of oversight for some different things of course That positioned the comptroller of the currency It's an agency that supervises some 1200 banks and helps set rules for Wall Street but she's also going to be if she got the job overseeing kind of all of the.

Tickles security, and also comic aspects bilateral, and regional accents, what it actually means for regional cooperation, and what have has. So, basically rash relations have gone a long way to the current state and that has been a number freezes for that. And the key rationale that has been driving, Russia and China closer since nineteen nineties is a has been striving for multiple full quote order these has been on the penal alignment between the Crohn's race. So that is that's signs of Sofala, and that, that should be equal that it should negotiate how the world or this would look like.

Also, the took conscious share norms such as respectful mutual tolerance to on CNN noninterference into domestic politics. And actually, they are trying to promote this norms in a number of regional situtions and national institutions uh, Sanchez breaks, for example. Another thing is that their form of global dominance is needed, and it suits deflect better. They're all not only western powers, but also other policies, including Russia and China. Very kissing was fad that took conscious extra to have gone, a long way to the MO tightening border, and whatever. The fullest needs to be have except that China's one of Russia's team. Neighbors with a wedding on board and at stupidity on the board then between the two crucial. Frosh securites have this has been also understanding a full time and basically the key ideas. That's russia. China did not support full essays that ain't at TATA's balance a full. Aw. One contract base, which basically means that they cannot be it's political circle has been one of the key things for the security of the two. And also Russia, China relations have arguably emerged as one of the key factors in international relations. I mean off a system battles facts threatening. Not just the bilateral relations. This here an approach to a number while rather laxed number of security problems. However, I would say that what we have seen what still the rather an alignment than alliance. And what, what optimists that the begin active provide? Is that the two concerts have kind of stategic neutrality position to that east? Here's reach the not fall within the category of the Coordinational interest, satis Ukraine cramming. If China on such a South China Sea, for us, and also well, east Tennessee, of course, also vile. Title fits for shop. Of course. China has been very important himself that development on the far east that east considered to be one of the key things. The key goal was rated wants to Atif incomes, domestic politics, economics development, and also for all of us as well. This is. At least densely populated part of Russia, and on about six minutes, people leave there. And this is that actually makes Russian geographically belong together to East Asia Pacific. So. China, of course, has been the while kind of essential piece of the key elements, relations vis China Russia's people to h. Own decided to be more engaged with ace head to improve it standing in the region to become a pot of origins. Gration comic operation also in menu. Wait to develop the far east.

Autists Russia becoming much more active in developing relations with China and while trying to accelerate its tone to the east, it's to ace and Rasa relations have been the key dimension of this. I mean, other developments that we have seen they mostly. They mostly make us look at trust Italian relations.
