How 9/11 Set Robert Saleh on the Path to Coaching the New York Jets

"And how many years have you been covering this franchise. Pablo f govern the jets for thirty two years. Which is longer than any person in history that's deserves a purple heart or you know a trip to the insane asylum but yes. It's thirty two years. And so how. Many coaches coaches have you seen. Come through the new york jets in that time. Yeah it's funny because the other day w- before they introduced roberts sala. I went back and checked because we need covered. That long. And the jets chains coaches so often you lose track over over time. He ends well. Total man okay. So you're the perfect person to talk to today. Your latest piece rich is about number twelve robert sala and his decidedly unique journey to new york city and the nfl coaching ranks. So before we get into all of the football and there is so much there. Tell me a little bit about robert. Saleh's background where did he grow up in. What was his upbringing like. Robert grew up in dearborn michigan which is just outside of detroit. Most people know it as a home of ford motor company but it's also the largest percentage of arab americans in the country. He is the grandson of lebanese immigrant. Muslim neighborhood a very strong and closely knit neighborhood and football was a big part of it. At robert really has football in his family. His dad played at eastern michigan university. He was. I'm told a very good middle linebacker. In fact he had a tryout with the chicago bears uncles who played cousins. Who played his older brother. David played all at ford's in high school. You mentioned the solid name at forts in high school and there is a strong tradition. Some of the best players in the schools history are members of the family from an early age. When robert was a seven year old waterboy for his older brother's football team. Football has been a huge part of his life. The family's life very much part of his upbringing in dearborn michigan so robert is growing up in this lebanese-american muslim family in dearborn a football family. What kind of player was robert himself. Yeah very good player. A captain in highschool played two ways. He was a linebacker in a tight end and really good. I talked to his high school coach. Jeff sturdiness in. I asked him. I said what kind of player was robert. He said he was like all the other solids he can really hit. You actually wears a bracelet to this day on his on his wrist during games. It says extreme violence. So i guess we could describe him as a very physical player who was good enough to get a scholarship in northern michigan and he went on to become an all conference. Tight end in northern michigan fell was ever a serious option for him. But i would say you know a really good ice school football player who enjoyed a solid career. So if you're a football player with that decidedly unsubtle mission statement rich. What do you do after college. Robert went to the exact opposite spectrum of what that mission statement would be. I mean he goes to work behind a desk working a nine to five job in a very stuffy. Corporate office building in downtown detroit is a credit analyst for america bank putting his finance degree work. His brother david is in the financial world is well you know. He graduated with a finance degree. So this is just following in the footsteps of his family. You know his dad had some done. Some business work. His grandfather was actually owned his own furniture store in dearborn. So he's really robert. Sala is point in his life in the year. Two thousand just anna colleges just following in the footsteps of some of his other relatives.

Guest Teacher Janel Dyan on How to Invest in Womens Leadership in Your Company

"Today. We'll be talking about why in these unprecedented times. Women in leadership are essential to your company. Short-term growth and long term survival gender and racial equality are certainly hot topics of conversation right now but there are some organizations that are ahead of the curve and like me have been focusing on the equality of women and women of color for years and these are my clients women in leadership women on the rise women entrepreneurs and women at the helm of fortune five hundred companies today such so what lincoln and ford motor company and helping them grow as leaders. What i do best over the past seven years. I've worked with females of all colors and varied backgrounds from the bay area to new york. They are not only having a huge impact today but they are paving the way for all future female leaders industries historically dominated by men. And here's what i see. The companies who have made it a part of their core tenants to support an invest in diversity programs for the leadership development of women are the companies who are now today's industry leaders and it's not only for the products and services they provide but more importantly as a brand that people want to work for by from remained loyal to the shifted their measurable for success to include strong corporate culture of innovation employed growth customer loyalty and diverse leadership team who focus on purpose. And not just on the bottom line. They understand that their greatest assets are their employees and they have dedicated their efforts to be a brand that is people focused and purpose driven during our time together. Today we will focus on three lessons. You can walk away with first because women are. Today's largest and fastest growing global consumer companies need to shift their brand strategy to recognize the powerful role that women in leadership play driving economic growth. Next we'll take a look at why the greatest leaders are master storytellers and how powerful story can be and finally will cover some tips for building a culture with equality in its foundation including ways to establish promote an invest in fema leadership. So let's get started less than one. Women are the fastest growing global consumer and it's imperative that companies adjust according to. Brigitte brennan author. Why she buys and winning her business. Women make or heavily influence. Seventy to eighty percent of all purchases across all industries which means women are every company's largest target customer to truly capitalize on this customer trend companies. Must do a better job creating products and services with female buyers in mind. Companies must create a brand that women will buy from advocate foreign remain loyal to the companies who are most equipped to connect with women are led by other women and their leadership results have a positive impact. On company performance. The profits higher margins add more returns for investors leaders such as saffir cats of oracle and mary barra of general motors. it seems like commonsense. But it's actually not common practice. Facts are that only. Eighteen percent of global firms are led by women and according to this year's forbes annual report the number of women. Ceo's running fortune five hundred companies since it just seven point four percent so clearly. There are strong logical ethical and financial reasons to put more women at the helm according to study by mackenzie if we can close the gender gap by twenty twenty five twenty. Eight trillion dollars would be added to the global economy and to put that in perspective that is the size of the economies of the united states in china combined. Right now during covid and racial injustices at the forefront we find ourselves in a global economy with the future unknown. These challenges are now calling for new leadership no longer one of command and control but one of collaboration community one of the biggest actions that any leader can do right now is be transparent and empathetic to their team members and customers because anxiety and uncertainty are heightened during this time of crisis emotional connection on a basic human level between the leader and employee has never been more important than right now a recent study done in two thousand nineteen by mit sought to determine the makeup of the most effective leadership teams and those are the teams with the most women especially women of color as they are leaders who bring a deeper understanding of resilience. Women are also more likely to have empathy for those struggling to deal with change or lack of inclusion become role models for the change that they seek and are willing to share inspirational stories to motivate to embrace change they are in general more inclusive and collaborative making in leadership style which is a combination that continues to prove to be effective in getting companies to move faster in times of change lesson to the power of story. Why greatest leaders are master storytellers. We all love stories. In fact stories are what differentiates us as human beings. It is highly forged connections among each other and they'll trust as a community each stories an emotional journey that reinforces shared beliefs values and vision that we can all relate to from drawings on the walls of cave with stories of heroism folktales. That are full of more lessons to generational family tales. That remind us of our roots. Human beings need to feel that we are part of something greater than ourselves stories. Reminders that through tough times we will come out to the other side stronger wiser and more unified than ever stories. Bring us back to the beginning and remind us of who we are and what we do in stories creek clarity in our purpose and vision to get their. The greatest leaders are master storytellers. Simon sinek author of the power of y in infinite game says beautifully leaders aren't responsible for the results. Leaders are responsible for the people who are responsible for the results. It is during these times of crisis that provide an excellent opportunity for leaders to communicate stories of incredible vision for the future showing empathy advising with humility and providing optimism. For what lies ahead. They also understand marketing at its core is simply about storytelling. and it is the stories. They choose to tell that can differentiate brand as an industry leader communicating the values of the brand with the product and services they sell. I mean who wasn't choked up watching google's tearjerking super bowl ad of a love story that began with a simple question how not to forget. So tying back to what we learn in less than one about women being the largest and fastest growing global consumer with the understanding that stories have power companies must give their products and services a story that women now can relate to and what better way to do that than with women at the helm leading the way finally lesson three building corporate culture with gender equality in its foundation companies with strong female leadership such as new york stock exchange. Pwg and google are continuing to create more equitable inclusive and fulfilling workplaces for all women and the investments are already proving to return tenfold to their bottom line.

Mustang Mach-E First Drive Review - Ford's All-New New Electric Crossover

"The car driving today is unique for four if their ever history fully electric battery electric vehicle designed from the ground up to be electric unlike some other early eighties like the nissan leaf. You know where. They decided to go for efficiency. Make it as a compact car for decided to go for the heart of the market. They what they really did was. They learned from tesla looked at. You know what tesla was doing. And how tesla was succeeding. That was making cars. Were cool looking. At cool technology had good performance And offer great range and ford decided to start with a compact midsize. upper compact. You know mid size crossover market is today. That's what people wanna buy It's getting close to suv's and crossovers are about forty percent of the us car market now and so the originally conceived this vehicle announced early twenty seventeen as a more conventional tross over. It was basically you know it was going to be front wheel drive. More something like Electric version of the escape Which is very popular compact. Crossover for four but late. Two thousand seventeen. They decided to completely change direction. They realized that that was not a car that was going to get people excited to buy an ev from ford. And so what they did instead was. They said okay. What's our what's our icon. What what is the vehicle that really gets people excited and within ford. The mustang is considered the heart and soul of the brand. It's by no means the best selling car but is the car they build that is representative of so many things for fun to drive. You know the racing history. Ford ford's racing. History goes back to before there was a ford motor company. Henry ford won the money that he used to start ford motor company by winning a race winning the vanderbilt cup and so the The they decided to use mustang as the inspiration for this car and and the end You know what they came up with was a crossover that has mustang design cues but they also knew that if they were gonna put the mustang badge on it that they needed to make it something that would fail. Drive a mustang. It's obviously a car. That's much taller than a traditional mustang. But because it's electric. That has the battery in the floor underneath the floor. That's still gives it a relatively low center of gravity. And they put a lot of the people who've worked on mustang over the years on this program and to try to infuse it with as much mustang dna performance dna and And they territory an attitude as they could and so they came up with something that has echoes of mustang but is also very practical car. For the first time ever you know traditionally mustangs the backseat and the mustang is not a place where you where you wanna be if you're an adult. It's fine for kids but know it's always been a two plus two this is a real five-seater got four doors. Got a hatchback big big cargo area in the back. And it's something that can be used as a family car but it also has a lot of that mustang. feel but it's also extremely modern. So you got things like the fifteen and a half inch touchscreen display in the center here with their sink for a system on it. They designed a completely new user interface for this car and this is going to be spreading out to two other vehicles as well. Unlike tesla Four as ford decided that you're not going to have everything in this touchscreen interface here They did retain a an instrument. Cluster display up in the front here directly in of the driver. Which i think is where it belongs. Yes that gives you information like your speed. Your driver systems systems like dab cruise control and lane keeping assist your range information. All that is right in front of you in the in the user interface here it's designed to be basically three areas three zones of this. You have the main zone up top here which is whatever the current application that you're using right now. It's navigation for dr route but You've also got these cards down here in this lower in this middle section here which represent the other applications that you've used most recently so if you go to things like you know right now there's an iphone connected to this which is being used as the phone is a key system and that brought up the the apple carplay interface and you can see that when it carplay interface came up navigation. Went down here into the most recently used slot in the in the cart section. So i can quickly get back to toggle back and forth. I can go to the ford pass out for charging. If i want to go to tap that and you see the Carplay and the navigation ford passer still down here instantly accessible so the system learns based on your behavioral based on what you're doing and so i'm going to go back here was also At the top here have Your your picture. You can have profiles from multiple drivers in here. Each driver can have Is tied to their own kifah program it to the fourth pass app on your phone use. Use the phone as your key with bluetooth belly when you tap on that it shows you all the apps that are available to the nice thing that they've done with his user interfaces. They've kept everything close to the surface close to the top so you're not drilling down through multiple layers of display multiple layers of interface. To get to the things that you want to use. It's all up close so right now. there's three three drive modes that are available right now in whisper mode which is the most economical mode the quietest mode the engage mode is the default mode. That's kind of a nice balance between the better better efficiency but also more performance and then unbridled is the the most performance oriented mode and what changes in between each of those modes. Is you get changes in the searing. Feel the amount of steering effort and you know for an suv. This thing has excellent steering response during feel to changing the drive modes also changes the accelerator pedal response so in whisper mode. It gives you a little bit slower response when you tip into the accelerator pedal A little smoother. Calmer more comfortable feel to it But then when you go through engage and finally to unbridled each time it gets a little more aggressive both with the the tip in response so that you know when you when you hit the accelerator pedal. It'll respond quicker jump off line faster in unbridled than it does in either engage or whisper but it also does the same in reverse for regenerative braking so in whisper mode you get more aggressive region or rather than Br bridled mode. You get more aggressive regenerative braking than you do in whisper mode or engage mode and you also have the option here separately for one pedal driving And you can set that and it'll stay remember what your settings were So it always goes back to whatever your last settings were so one pedal driving is great especially if your stop and go traffic in city traffic or On a on a on a highway even in stop and go traffic jam because it will bring the car to a complete stop when you lift off the accelerator. So i have not touched the brakes and the car coming to a complete stop here and then accelerating nice. Quick celebration puts you back seat. It's not as fast right now. As the tesla performance moats. But this also isn't the highest performance version. That's that's gonna be the. Gt the machi. Gt comes out in the summer. Twenty twenty one will be the version that goes up against the likes of tesla model y performance with it's insane mode the gt's going to accelerate zero to sixty in the in the mid three second range. Which will put it comparable to the shelby. Gt five hundred. Which has the giant supercharged v. Eight engine when i drove the machi earlier this afternoon on the auto cross course that one we drove was The rear wheel drive version. And what was interesting about it. Was you know they. They really tuned the suspension field. To give it more of that mustang. Feel so we get some off throttle oversteer. Can you can control the attitude of the car really well with the accelerator pedal the ride quality and this despite the performance capability is actually quite good. It's very comfortable but it's still got really good body control one other aspect does change when you change the drive. Moans is the sound there's the unbridled gives you a little bit more aggressive sound to engage. It's a little bit more toned down and whispered as you would expect. it's very quiet

Jay Beever, Embraer, and Designing Luxury

"Jay. You're an interesting guy because your proof that talent and innovation can cross pollinate different professional fields. But let's start at the beginning talk about cars. Where'd you start such a fun story? I. Think there is something that can benefit a lot of people because sometimes we have a mentality that we can't do something if we're not trained or degreed in a certain skill set in that regard I always had a dream of being a car designer automotive designer it started because of my own Ed Richter and his wife k they own studebaker. Rare student bakers like the Rock, any Newt Rodney the famous Nordic football coach and that particular studebaker in thirty two and thirty three head a version with a rumble seat. The back of the seat would open up and you can sit back there. Well, he owns one original condition. They still drive it to this day and I remember as a child going to their home and peaking in the garage and not only was the rock. Ni there. But hiding around the corner three cars wide a commander in another student bigger from thirty three in disheveled but yet al capone gangster looking. Need to be restored in the Shadows Bee's, and it was inspiring and he has since restored that commanders well, beautiful cars that led to a journey of understanding Raymond lowy and his influence with the star liner and and everything else that he did outside of automotive everything from the coke bottle two steamships, the example of cross industry designed capability, and how they can learn from each other. So those automobiles and being so enthralled with the shapes and forms and the mysterious nature of them. Of course, because they are stuck in a garage was always a thrill being in the big three capital. Detroit suburbs knowing some ankles at work for the car companies and my mother worked for crain communications and she was a key line artists which was related graphic design page layout for making magazines back before digital publishing back when we had use razor blades and wax I've got some razor blades stories she would come home that's the articles in the early days of graphic storytelling, pie charts, and that stuff before the Mac really did it well, for us I got to watch all that and it was all related automotive interesting thing was like billing model airplanes World War Two model airplanes. Give me a B seventeen, b twenty, nine, b twenty, four I would recommend them get another kit and build it again, sometimes melt holes in the side of the single to a bottom of. So aerospace was like the carnal thing inside waiting to come out, but it was going to be cars. So I did I ended up in the car business I used to take my mom's take from those key lining page layout days with exacto blades in Pinstripe, my nine hundred and fifty seven Chevy matchbox car, and that was six years old playing with exacto blades if you can imagine that. Better than matches I guess. But maybe not much. Those, always stayed with me. So from graphics, you can make something look different to designing a car. All of this is really about transportation design being thrilled with things that move. So that was kind of the start of it, but I couldn't afford Zion College I would have loved to have gone to CCS, I spent a couple of summer classes in graphic in other types of designs like pottery, Constanza, pottery as. A kid but it's learning POW powdery Auto Detroit on the why am I being exposed to this? But then there's incredible community college in mccomb county they're outside Detroit and they had a great drafting program. My opportunity to get into the big three was through drafting go. This is great. Fell in love with in high school, and now I can have a career doing this. So went into drafting CAD design hired. At Ford, Motor Company in Nineteen ninety-three as an intern doing cad purity aided design drafting and three D. modelling, and that's when that stuff was really just coming on board it used to be guys had to draw. So you were at the forefront of that new technology in many ways going back to the drawing real quick I think the thing that helps the most even to this day is understanding what A. French curve can do and a large spine. One of my projects at the college was to create an body car, GM car body side, and three different views, projecting the points in three different orthographic views and make the arc continuously perfectly smooth accelerated curves were necessary in all of us so that you could inevitably put that on aluminum plates that was a hard way to go but it was fun. So then. We get into Ford and they had their own homegrown computer system called the PG S and that was done on these lundy tubes that were tube TV's really with light pens and we stroke the light pens on the screen and rotate things around, and there's a little keyboard tracking our time talk about ours disappear quickly when you're building things I couldn't have thought I could of ended in a better career exam. Making something from nothing into three D. and having it show up on the road someday. So I really liked that approach to design design engineering though I hadn't had the opportunity to actual industrial designer transportation design school like you'd find in Pasadena Arts Center or

Sheryl Sandberg On Facebook and Elections

"Last week John spoke with Facebook Coo Sheryl Sandberg Zoom Call, and we've got their conversation for you as an extended show today. John Obviously people know Sandberg as Facebook, Coo. But what else should they know about her? She's very well known in the tech industry, but also in in circles of leadership in advocacy for women in leadership minorities, leadership But yeah, the most visible role she plays as the number two to mark facebook in that has been enrolled. That's been developing over more than a decade and prior to that, she was a in early employee at Google and played role in the Clinton administration as well. Of course, there's been a lot going on facebook and we've reported on it along the way, but they're kind of always as. So. Why talk to San Merck now it's been particularly busy summer and there was a lot to talk about on the call. You know you've had this advertising boycott. You've had a lot more questions about their willingness to police hate speech and and make sure that civil rights are being protected on the platform You've also had this run up to the election and a lot of focus on small business and what they can do during a pandemic both to stop the spread of misinformation and help small business stay afloat. Cheryl's also well known for her foundation Leinen, and at the time that we talked, it was a black women's payday and Kamala Harris had just been tapped as the vice presidential candidate for Joe Biden. Leinen had just done this study that pointed out some things that are fairly obvious. But maybe we didn't realize how cute the problems really are, and that was related to advancement opportunities for minority women in Business both leadership management opportunities just their ability to move forward in their careers. Here's what she told us the data's incredible right now, men are doing a lot to men are doing an average of fifty hours a week of childcare and housework. That's something. We've never ever seen before women doing an average of seventy one. And Black Women and women of color doing even more that GOP is twenty one hours and single mothers, many of whom are of color but single mothers of all backgrounds are doing twice as many hours per week caring for elderly or sick relatives as well and doing a great majority of childcare and we know that all of these numbers hit women who were core hit poor families harder than wealthier families across the board. But even amongst the elite, what you almost always see is the average woman even if she's working full-time is doing a lot more in the home than the average man and that is a big part of what happens to us in the workforce. Until we get to a quality in the home, we're never getting to a quality in the workplace and that has become even more urgent with coronavirus. These are all important issues to the Wall Street Journal, we cover these things all the time we've been covering them aggressively and comprehensively, but we could only manage to get so much in today's episode. So with the issue at hand is clearly. The election and facebook's huge role to play. They're given what happened in two, thousand, sixteen and expectations in the twenty twenty and that's the part of the conversation we wanted to share with listeners today. Thanks John. A couple of things. We should note here this was a video call. So it's got that feel to it and it was recorded last week we've got that conversation after the break.

I want to set the context of you know of the problems and our criticisms aimed at your company, not just Sheryl Sandberg the executive, but the user of facebook is well I I. I have to assume that you're not just running a company that you're using the product. The company faces a Lotta Chris the you know. The the frustration about incentivizing the you know spreading misinformation allegedly incentivizing that extremely provocative in hateful speech that that gets through and get seen sometimes gets pushed up in our news feeds. The suspicion facebook is still a place for unwholesome characters and actors can manipulate the system in use misinformation to get results that they're looking for etc.. Nah Not. Not so much yet about the solutions that you guys have put in place in the learnings but how do you feel today about facebook is a place against the backdrop of those criticisms so we do face a lot of those criticisms and anytime you have a platform as large as ours you know three billion plus people on it many many of them daily. We have huge responsibility. And I think that is a responsibility that we really had to grow into. When I look at this election, we are a different company than we were in twenty sixteen and we are going into this election in a very different place in touches on all of the issues that you you're talking about. So let's go back to answer your question to twenty sixteen if you think about the election in two, thousand sixteen. We obviously had systems in place to defend against attacks from other states. But what those normally or thought of what we thought of them I think everyone of them was. People with hacking steal your data, remember the DNC emails remember Sony. That was basically what state actors did, and we've had very good systems in place in great defenses there what we completely missed in two thousand sixteen was not going in and stealing your stuff. But was going in and writing stuff. Fake host trying to get audiences to believe things in ways that you were representing. That's what happened with Russian interference and we completely missed it. So did the FBI. So did every government of the world? That is just not true when you think about the election in twenty eighteen and you think about being election today. We now understand this threat and are deeply engaged in working on it, but we're also not on our own homeland security has a department on miss the FBI has a task force on this in two thousand sixteen we call these groups coordinated inauthentic behaviour. So coordinated authentic like we saw the Russian fake posts in twenty sixteen, we took down networks we'd never heard of it twenty seventeen we took down one. In. The last year we took down over fifty. We now do these. So often at people used to write stories, we've Allah publicly. No one even does does that mean we're going to catch every single thing I will never claim that we will always have every single thing the services big. But does that mean we're in a very different place going into this election Absolutely. And one retake really seriously. We're also trying to get even more proactive on the good like on facebook there's things they're stopping the bad stopping the hate stopping interference with there's also promoting the good at, and that's something that I care a lot about mark as a lot of Bob. So we want yesterday. So it's perfectly timely to talk to you about it, our new voter information center and what that Information Center is a one stop shop where you can go to get accurate information on this election. That's never been more important registering to vote who's eligible that stuff's always hard. But in this election with corona virus and holes potentially closed getting accurate information is even more important. So We'd put this out. It's modeled on our coronavirus center where we put out very definitive information really helped people get the right answers. Now anytime people post about voting on facebook working a link to this center. We're also trying to be as ambitious as we can. I'm a woman I'm I'm owning the word ambitious, but it's ambition by my company. To Register people. So in the last two elections, we registered two million people to vote. which is very large, but we've put out pretty audacious goal that we're GONNA try to help register four million people for this election cycle, which I think would make it the largest effort of its kind by were invasion and were really. We're really proud of that really excited about it. So we I sit here John Taking, you take the criticism when we deserve it very seriously. We take our responsibility very seriously atop to show work every day trying to stop anything bad we gotTA learn quickly bad will always try to get ahead but also trying to use our platform in our services for the good. What do you do as the user? Something on facebook doesn't along there. Do you just pull the red phone out and make a phone call or are you pensive about that and thinking about emits broader context at it needs the nuance as market said it's very hard. To directly police the content and and just hit the button? Yes. So look it is hard to directly police the content. We know that it's very hard to pull heat down. It's very hard to find it and identified. That's why we've invested so much think our standards are the highest not the lowest I think our enforcements the best, but that doesn't make it perfect. You know as a user I actually don't remember seeing something that violated our policies and most people have not most people hear about it or it gets pulled into press and they see it now. I've certainly seen things I. Disagree with I have some family members whose political views I do not share. You know I have some ice stuff about fuck I disagree with. But in terms of my actual experience of seeing real hate yes I would pull I. Don't have a bat phone, but I would definitely take a screen shot in forwarded. Personally, referred infant I haven't had that experience or know how many people actually do see content that violates the rules is there a way to kind of measure that? Millions of people report content millions of not not all of it is actually violated with our standards but millions of people go through that process. In fact, we released our latest community standards enforcement report, and it gets to exactly what you're asking what that shows. Is All the different kinds of content we take down how much? How much violence? Were Nagasaki and it shows what percentage of it. We took down and found ourselves or someone reported to us. And that's where the progress on hate I think really becomes clear when we first did this report years ago, twenty, four percent of the hate we took down, we found ourselves which meant that seventy, six percent of the time someone had reported it to us. That's not a good experience. Our latest report we put out this week were at ninety, five, ninety, five percent of the hate that we take down we are finding before it's reported. That means five percent of what we take down is still being reported to us, which is still alive on facebook. So we have our work cut out for us, but clearly a significant improvement over twenty four percent just a few years ago and it to really the investments we've made in systems in AI in. Huge teams to monitor that's gotten us. There are your standards tough. Enough I mean that's something that we know is a sticky situation because everybody wants what they find to be offensive police in. As you said, sometimes it borders on my own bias is what I don't WanNa see. But when you look at the standards, where are you guys at particularly because they have in freshly criticized and there's rolling dialogue about whether whether you're going to get tougher? Where are we met? Her students are very tough but they're not as tough as some people would want them to be or they're not as comprehensive as some people would want them to be you know one person's opinion. One person's free expression could be another person's he. We work really hard on these definitions and were very public about the our entire standards are publicly out there including most to the material that the people who use inside their references that were very public about them. You know for the most part, we've always been a very protected society and the criticism has always been on both sides I'll give you an example that was very hot for a while was breastfeeding. We don't do pornography, we don't do breasts. In some parts of the world, a new woman who's naked from the top would be on the front page of every newspaper, and there are people that really believe in breastfeeding. It felt that we were suppressing their free speech because our computer systems were picking up any time. You saw a nipple of any kind even if it was a breastfeeding picture so we've worked more nuance there, but I think over the course of time, people have found us to be very strict on the standards. There are people out there that think are hit standards aren't strong enough. We are continually evaluating them continually making improvements. But I think a lot of people think our standards are too hard and so we try to be as transparent as possible. We try to evolve to meet ongoing things that are things. We'd never heard of no one ever heard of years ago. That are brand new movements that are hateful and there are things that some people find offensive that we do leave up because we think three expression in having that too is critically important in a lot of situations sodden. You're thinking on your role as an information broker during corona virus. How did that? I emerge and how did you deal with that at facebook given? All of the things that the most elite elite medical personnel don't know in yet. Here you are with the responsibility of not disseminating misinformation that may cost people's lives or fan pandemic. So our policy on misinformation is we don't take down we send it to third party fact checkers if it's marked as false or partially false, we dramatically decrease the distribution we market this has been marked false or partially falls and we linked to more information that often can tell the whole side of the story. Even, before Corona virus, we had an exception to that, which is information that was going to cause imminent harm and that policy really came out of other parts of the world. Misinformation was leading to death or imminent harm. The Corona virus we took the stand to things we said we're not going to have information that will lead to imminent harm. And we're going to rely on health experts. We are not decided there was no decision made by your marker anyone on our team. This is true about coronavirus and this is not because we're not experts but we partnered from the beginning with local health authorities the CDC the. H. Show the you know the health ministers in different countries to make sure that we were taking down misinformation. No matter who posted it up would also give very accurate information out and I think sometimes in these discussions, we forget that there are two sides. Of course, we need to take down at least marcus false things that are harmful, but we also have to use our services. To, get out the information people need. So governments like the UK, government local governments when they needed to get messages to their citizens, they've turned on us and we've been I think a very effective way of getting messages out. Interested. In in several high profile advertisers including some that I shot from it said, we're gonNA take a break and it wasn't just facebook it with social media have companies come back and what what are those conversations and like I know. The effect on the bottom line may not be what well understood you do rely. So heavily on smaller and middle sized companies for revenue but but it was a huge moment, a big headline where where are you guys at conversations are they back? So advertisers are starting to come back not but a good number are coming back have come back in process. Look those conversations were really hard John because normally. If someone is boycotting you or is protesting you want you to do a whatever a is in. You don't want to do it. That's not the case at all here the boycotters and the advertisers didn't want hate on facebook and we don't want this book Sosa. I think we had completely aligned goals and we have challenges in enforcing that. So again, we just released our enforcement report. We were at eighty nine percent of finding hate we take down ourselves. Now we're up to ninety five. That's an improvement and we know we have we have further to go. We also do have some notice agreement with people on what hate is we tend to take a broader swath of allowing some information that we think it's free expression to stay on so that people can have dialogue but in terms of hate, I think the real issue is that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of our service out there that we need to do a better job correcting we don't want. Hey. We don't benefit from hey, we don't profit from hey users don't want to see it. Consumers don't WANNA. See it. Advertisers don't want to be next to it. So the the narrative of facebook is leaving pay because they WANNA profit for. That's just just you talked about voters earlier and the initiatives that you're putting your proactively being part of a solution is what I hear you saying. But Marquez said very recently with this electric this unprecedented situation and I'm I'm guessing given your. Your half glass full mentality it's an opportunity but what's at stake here for facebook I? Mean we're all GonNa Blaine facebook if things go wrong and a certain candidate decides to use the platform and you're not taking down information with speed or at all is it a noble no-win situation here or what's at stake for this platforms ability to prove its productive place in this discussion? So we all know that there's a lot at stake for the selection full stop. There's more concern in confusion about how to register to vote what is valid I think there's more concern around misinformation around any kind of coordinated attacks. I think we're going into this election in a totally different place than twenty sixteen and interestingly, I think our track record in twenty eighteen was actually fairly good when people talk about things facebook missed in an election getting upset at us for things that are almost always talking about twenty sixteen you almost never hear about twenty eighteen and there have been hundreds of elections around the world and to look our job is to get people accurate information to be proactive. We are being much more proactive around. Pushing out information in this election and we have or have been before, and that is modeled on what we did with Toronto virus. We are taking that approach doing everything to get rid of the bad. We are doing everything to get in front of people the accurate information as well. And then we want to make sure that people can use the prop. One thing that's worth really thinking about is how many small people small people running for smaller offices. Are Using our platform provisionally when we're in social distancing and can't campaign. That's right. So how do you advertise to? No one's ever heard of me. I'm running for State Senate or I'm running for school board and I want to do it cheaply and efficiently we allow that to happen and we're proud of that role replied. There are you prepared I mean thinking about four more years of questions regarding how quickly you should be policing the president and his tweets given the thus far has a track record that trump is definitely more aggressive with platform Vice President Biden ever has been he trump wins. You're already in a in a in a situation where you guys are have been accused of dragging your feet on or taking a less aggressive stance against him. How do you think about that in a world where we might see four more years of that? It's our. It's our job to have clear and consistent rules. That, we apply in a fair way globally and I know we are very focused that we should be very focused on this election. There are important elections all over the world with people on different sides, and so we have experienced not just in the US cycle, but obviously the hundreds of elections that have happened since since last US cycle and we do we. Get accused from conservatives of being anti-conservative. They look it. Awesome. A see liberal silicon, Valley company I mean, I've been very affiliated Democrat. I remain unaffiliated Democrat other people look at us and they say we're not going far enough and our answer is going to be very clear about what our rules are and working apply them as even handed away as possible we also. Recognize that there should be limits to our power to decide what stays up in. Probably one of the most important things that's going to happen in the upcoming twelve months is the rollout of our content for which we've announced but has not yet come together to play. So for the first time, there's GonNa be a possibility that if you either have something taken down. And you think that's unfair or you take it down or you WanNa leave up in either direction, you can appeal it to the content board in your case much like the court right they'll have more than they can but they'll try to hear the big months. Someone else will decide and that board is independent does not report to mark does not report to me. Were also working with governments around the world. We think government has a very big role to play. Wouldn't it be good if governments to find hate rather than private companies would you be good if governments defined what is a political ad? Not Private companies were working hard to make sure that there are checks and balances and that the government's role is really important not just here around the world. You're not just the Democrat I mean you're you're a friend of the president presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket at an I I don't know the. Friendship, but definitely, it's been noted that the two of you have relationship you've been support I'm wondering if you're kind of jaw drops a little bit about the delicate role that you need to play his business leader given facebook's place in society if you're running Ben and Jerry's, which is much smaller if you're running. Patagonia. If you were running for Motor Company, you probably feel a little bit more free an mistaken to be supportive and to give the porch that you want to feel it all that your your ability to help is checked by your role I mean, my day job is facebook and my nights on Facebook, and then you know I work on my foundation as well, and so it is not my job to be very active in the political process and I've chosen a career that keeps me in business. So I don't wake up in the morning. You know what should I be doing politics 'cause I wake up in the morning with a very big job for facebook I. think that's consistent with business leaders. You know as a woman and as a woman who's long fought for the role of women to have more to celebrate ambition to celebrate what we're reaching for the highest office I'm thrilled to see a woman about to be nominated a woman of color about to be nominated and I spoke out anatomy horse I would do. Of course, I would do that and my foundation has done that as well. Do need to think twice about how supportive I mean it it's not a heavy lifting to be supportive publicly. Meaning you don't have to put in a lot of hours, but like running a news organization, I mean it kind of is a proxy for what facebook has become what we think of as a neutral platform even well, I've said, we're GONNA work with anyone who wins for us. So when I'm asked when you work with trump, if he wins the election, will you work with Biden if he sorry president trump if he wins the election we work with Vice, President Biden. Of course, we don't get to pick. Citizens elect their governments and we work with them, and we work with all over the world and we have to be willing and able to do that. Would you work for President Biden if there was a president Biden, you know I have a long decided I had my time. I worked at the Treasury Department under President Clinton and it was an amazing opportunity. What about the open seat in California right now not interested at all I mean. I really love my job and I really have so much respect for mark and my colleagues. Every day is not easy I don't expect anyone feel sorry for me or any of us we have great opportunities big role to play. We have serious responsibility to get this election right? We have serious responsibility to get hate and you know misogyny off the platform. against, wake up every business, I feel lucky to have this opportunity and I feel lucky to work for someone who is strong and has such conditions as mark. Are you having a guest one final question is the enormity of that task of getting it right. Your back and forth about what that looks like all day. But getting it right as a business challenge. Also, when I say this, I wonder if you are amazed at the trajectory of the importance of this as a public trust, almost as a is an institution and we aren't just considering a business but has a responsibility to society. Is there one? That outweighs the other giving you have shareholders, others, or is there is there a way to balance those two things at the same time? These things that people think are in conflict sometimes, but I really don't think they are we need people to trust our service we need people to trust that we're GONNA make content decisions not for profit on either side. But for the right for the right reasons and to doing the things that need our responsibility to protect elections takedown hit, they don't trade off against the business. They're important to drive the business. Now, there is a resource tradeoff rehiring engineer. We can put them on an ad program to build rags ads we can put them on safety we can put them on security. Of course, we have resource trade-offs, research trips of my time reserves tradeoffs mark if you look at how do our jobs and you compare it to for years ago, Mark Myself All of our senior leaders Chris Cox who just came back. Incredible. Chief Product Officer Mike Shrimp for our incredible. CTO We all spend a lot more of our time on the protection of the community. Then we did five years ago but I think that is super important and for a while we were playing catch up and I think all of these things work together. There's not a trade offs. We have to absolutely meet our responsibility and build our business and without meeting our responsibility, we're not going to build Turkishness. Kyi No your plane to grab people from. What you go Thank you for your time. It's always nice talking to and. Until next up. On.

We took one of the most aggressive approach is in the nation against this virus and because we've taken this so seriously. We're doing much better than other states states like Florida and Texas who are continuing to struggle and closed later and reopened earlier than we did, who are now seeing historic surges in cases? I'm live, reported yesterday. That despite being one of the hardest hit states early on, Our state currently ranks 40th and the seven day average of new Corona virus cases per capita And in the 40th percent testing positive on Corona virus virus diagnostic diagnostic tests. tests. These These are are wonderful wonderful pieces pieces of of information information compared compared to to what's what's happening happening across across the the country country are are average average infects infects infection infection rate for the last month was half that of Ohio and Indiana and Wisconsin. This slide shows Michigan's daily cases per 1,000,000 compared to other Midwest States. I'm live also reported that states across the country that did not take this virus seriously, are now seeing record numbers in terms of daily Corona virus cases. Hospitalizations and deaths. Georgia was the first day in the country to reopen its economy and is now averaging five times the number new cases of Corona virus in a day, five times more than the state of Michigan. And while states like Georgia and Florida and Texas reported hundreds of new deaths last week, Michigan had 43 Percent positivity rate is also far below our Midwestern neighbors. And we have continued to ramp up testing over the past few months. There's a wonderful Twitter thread by Dr Asheesh Zhaan that talks about testing and positivity rates. I think it's worth your time to look, ifyou're happened to be on Twitter. This virus demands to be taken seriously. Youth will not protect you from this virus. Political affiliation will not protect you from this virus. This virus will not go away just because we're tired of dealing with it. The on ly way we can put a stop to this pant. I make an end to this pandemic is there take it seriously, do our part to protect one another and do what we know works. My mask says I wear this for you. And it is true. When we wear masks. We were properly so it covers our nose and Mo. When we practice social distancing and when we go out to get tested when it's necessary When we do these things, we put our whole state in a stronger position. To send our kids back to school safely. Wearing a homemade mask. It's simple. And it shows your commitment to protecting yourself. Your family and your fellow Michiganders from this virus. To make it easier for those who are particularly vulnerable to Cove in 19 and who need help securing masks. Today we're announcing the My Mask Aid project. This project is a partnership, a partnership involving the state of Michigan Bheema and the Ford Motor Company, and it's a result of the hard work of the Michigan Cove in 19 task force on racial disparities. Shared by Lieutenant Governor Garland Gilchrist Way will provide for 1,000,000 free masks to people who need them most really incredible donation that Ford is working with us. To make sure that we're able to do this. One million of the face coverings from FEMA 1.5 million from Ford will go to low income schools, the city of Detroit. Federally qualified health centers, Some Colvin, 19 testing sites and too many organizations, helping to reach vulnerable populations, including minority residents, who have been affected by the public health crisis as a result of historic racism. Anyone interested in receiving a free mask? Can find a distribution location by calling the Cove in 19 hotline at 85356136 We're looking at their local community Action agency online. I want to thank Jim Hackett and Ford for their partnership. In this project. It's partnership is going to save lives wearing a mask has been proven to reduce the chance of spreading covert 19 by about 70%. According to one estimate. If 95% of Americans wore masks between now and December 1st. It would save 66,000 American lives. According to one estimate, if 95% of Americans do this. We can get our make our economy stronger and save one another's lives. That's 66,000 people who are parents or grand parents or Children, siblings, friends. It could be saved by the simple act of wearing a mask when he go to the grocery store pharmacy when you're out and about As a parent. I know the number one thing on everyone's mind is whether and how their kids are going to return to the returned to school this fall. It's a pairs across Michigan are anxiously awaiting their school district's to decide how we're going to safely educate our kids, whether it's by remote learning or implementing the strict safety measures I outlined in the my safe schools reopening In June. After rise and covert cases in July and early August. Our case numbers have begun to plant home. So we're not out of the woods and this crisis is far from over. But we appear to have stopped the incline, but we're now playing told and we want to see that become a decline. To get through this and to ensure the safety of our kids, educators and support staff this fall. Everyone's got to continue to do their part. We also need the Trump Administration and Congress to step up and provide additional support. Two states like Michigan, so we can send more resource is to our classrooms to keep our kids and our educators and all of their families safe. I want to end by thanking the thousands of Michiganders on the front lines of this crisis, while people everywhere have made tremendous sacrifices to protect their families from this virus. Those on the front lines have put their own health at risk to take care of the rest of us. Every day for the past five months. Gruelling, stressful work. You've ever listened. Tio this American life on NPR. They've highlighted some stories of people on the front line in Detroit. You might want to check it out. I was proud, but also it was an eye opener. And I hope maybe you might listen. Nurses and doctors working 18 hour shifts and giving up time with their families to keep them safe. You stood by the side of a bed where someone lost their battle with covert 19 and their family couldn't be there. Grocery store workers, especially in the beginning of this pandemic, worked around the clock to keep ourselves stocked to ensure people could buy groceries safely. Child care workers who've been instrumental in helping our frontline workers save lives every day. These air truly the real heroes of this crisis, truck drivers and mail carriers. People who mask up every day for hours on end to ensure our safety. They deserve our gratitude and respect and the best way we can show it is by masking up. So with that I want to say thank you to all of those who have just described have stayed on the front lines. I want to encourage everyone in our state to keep doing our part to stay smart and to mask up. And with

Ford employees ask the company to stop making police cars

"Motor Company is out with a Ah, process that they're going through about 100 employees have gone public with their request to the automaker to stop selling police vehicles because Police are brutal and they're racist. Ford executives are weighing the request and have not yet made an announcement. But there's a lot of pressure on social media for Ford to tell police departments they will no longer sell. The vehicles to them. So what is Toyota get vehicles them selling, you know, picking up the slack market share because right now serious, San Diego has Toyota four runners the SUVs. So I mean, thie employees air urging the cut that their boss the company do not make and sell. Ah police units. Ah, police cruisers to city so that Some other. There's still gonna be police cars. Why would you not want to get your fair share of that market place? If your employees of Ford apparently, these people don't want their jobs, I mean, I would put them on the top of the list of fire. All right, somebody safe and your name to the layoff list If we lose the contract, you know, with the Tuscaloosa, Alabama Police Department that you're the 1st 1 to relinquish your well, why don't you just quit forward then? I mean, why? Why? Why does four have to stop making the product? That's what they're in the business of doing is making automobiles. Yeah. Bia Social Justice warrior full time. You don't need to work out. Ford, you know, support is not consistent with your values. So be a social justice warrior. Put your money where your mouth is and quit your job, mate. This This is absurd. I've decided. I don't like it. Don't don't want to give Ah police Cruiser to Ah! Ah, car to the police. But does that mean that you also are going to use 901? I'd love to get the name of the 100 people and block their ability from their cell phone to dial 911 is apparently where they don't need no police and there's their community. They don't need cars. They don't need police. So no. 911 for you. I mean, this is where you start pointing out the Um, the bankruptcy of some of these folks in terms of what they're saying, their advocate and and the absolute absolute juvenile nature of these causes. I mean, this is child's play, right? I mean, this's not thoughtful. This isn't academic. This isn't deep. This isn't even You know, argumentative. I mean, this is this is just this is foolishness. This is this is child's play. The head of Ford has sent a letter to employees and it it reads in part, quote as we meet weekly in our global team huddles. Invariably there are questions that don't get answered, given the short time we have together. Or simply would be better addressed off line. On it goes on to talk about. Ah Ah, you know the fact that quote Bill Ford, and I believe deeply that there is no room for systemic repression and racism that have been exhibited by law enforcement encounters gone wrong. Um Your your product had nothing to do with it. Why are you taking ownership of part of the problem? You made the car. You didn't make the police officer or even the police officer's equipment or the rule book and I go back to having a CEO of a company. Come out with a statement like that. That that somehow they've made the judgment that racism was driving. Ah, ah, the inappropriate use of force. Again. I don't think we can say that. I think it's nice to say Well, if the cop is white, and the suspect was black, the victim was black. So therefore it must be racism. That's a pretty lousy assumption to be making. And to have a CEO of one of our largest companies come out and basically validate that and then go on in a what is a nine paragraph letter explaining how they're wrestling with this decision about literally saying we're not gonna sell cars to a pretty significant portion. You know, we had at least I think 600 800 cars. Andi. I know that these are not cheap cars. So let's say that there because they're there outfitted with a bunch of special equipment and stuff. So let's say that these cars are 50 grand each for the city of San Diego. Alone. That's a $40 million hit for Ford. For just a cycle of vehicles $40 million. That's just for San Diego Police department, then multiply that by all the police departments across the country. Your shareholder and Ford. Relatively ticked. Out on the opposite end of the spectrum. I'm not a shareholder in Ford. I'm relatively ticked. I'm just relatively tick that the company is taking this kind of stance. Whether they're toward with their emotions. It's the car. It isn't the attitude of the law enforcement official. It isn't It isn't anybody. It's it's the inanimate object, but yet they feel like that. Somehow they're contributing to systemic racism by manufacturing, a police unit. Now on the other end of the spectrum. A CEO of a food company paid a small compliment to President Trump. A Rose Garden ceremony yesterday. And now he is facing calls for resignation, and even members of Congress have urged people to boycott the food manufacturer.

Ford reveals the redesign of its biggest moneymaker, the F-150 pickup

"For nearly forty years the Ford F. series pickup has been America's best selling vehicle not just trucks all vehicles now the ever popular F. one fifty is about to undergo a major redesign Keith Norton tracking the story for Bloomberg and he's on the KRLD news line from Detroit Keith what are you hearing from Ford Motor Company yes Ford is completely redesigning the F. one fifty which is its top seller and and the the biggest biggest changes changes are are really really in in the the interior interior the the exterior exterior looks looks pretty pretty similar similar to to what what we've we've had had for for the the last last five five years years but but on on the the inside inside things things are are very very different different because because the the big big twelve twelve inch inch touch touch screen screen in in the the middle middle of of the the dashboard dashboard which which is is put put support support on on equal equal footing footing with with the the ram ram that that has has gotten gotten a a lot lot of of sales to having a high tech interior they also put in these seats that fold all the way back like you're on a in a first class airline seats so you can sleep in your house one fifty that when you're driving obviously but apparently owners told them that they like to take power naps and wanted seats to accommodate that they've also put in a workspace in the center console the the shifter actually folds away at this laptop desk essentially in the center of the truck where you complete your laptop to your lunch or whatever and they have added a lot of driver assist features there's even a hands free driving future after debuting the electric Mustang marquis and the F. one fifty that'll be coming in twenty twenty one but you'll be able to go down the road without your hands on the steering wheel as long as you keep your eyes on the road so there are a number of features like this that that really takes the F. one fifty to the next level and into the new century N. Keith Ford has had some financial issues of late certainly the pandemic hasn't helped how crucial is it that they get it right with this redesigned pickup the F. one fifty is the franchise player for Ford so it's absolutely crucial that they keep this money maker willing they are going to lose five billion dollars this quarter because of the coronavirus should shut downs they had all of their factories for two months and they were already struggling financially before that they had a very botched launch last year of a redesigned version of its explorer sport utility vehicle so they're really trying to get back on their footing and there's nothing that can help the more than the F. series pickup they sell almost nine hundred thousand of these things each year it represents forty two billion in annual revenue from Jess that product so this is how Ford makes most of its money they've got to get this

The Ford Motor Company the CEO of the Ford Motor Company the crucible of mass production, and the you know, the product is the essence of the capitalist exchange.

So that one hundred million people are driving. He says and Ford cars and just think of all the data that we can get from those cars, and then we combine it with all the data about you that we already have from Ford credit. And you put that altogether. And we basically know everything about you. And he says how's that for monetize in data and a top analyst in the auto industry says, you know, this is a great future for four. They don't have to build factories. They don't have to employ workers. It's all pure profit. Because what that that's like the full circle coming round to the situation where we are the objects, right? Not the subject is this. Why you call it a parasitic form of capitalism? I do indeed it is parasitic because it's about us. But it's not for us. It's about us. But for the purposes of serving others financial goals and others financial gain. And by the way, it's important to know that this is a sharp divergence from the history of market capitalism, and certainly. From the history of market democracy. You know capitalism and democracy have have found a a kind of equilibrium over the past century in in the fact that there are these organic reciprocity is that capitalism needs people as its customers, and it needs people as its employees surveillance capitalism.

"I might be willing to wait a half an hour to get the drill to draw to drill the hole. I don't know if I'm ever going to remember going to bar somebody else's genes, which clothing another example that you mentioned in the book or just gave seller example, probably going to own my own self or because even though I could rent silverware for win about to eat that the transaction class of that. Even though the app is seamless and fabulous and quick. I really don't even want to walk out to the to the curb because the price savings on the civil usages so small that that time cost is going to actually be large enough to keep me from doing it. So talk about some of the ways those factors interact. Those are both really good questions. So I think that the this sharing. I'm more confident now about calling it the sharing revolution. Because I think that my earlier claims about rental are pretty shortsighted that we'll think of better ways to do it than the sort of formal renting, but sticking with formal renting there are many kinds of and I'm afraid I'm going to make a sort of cozy in point coast ESTES. Really great question in nineteen thirty seven if markets are so great wire their firms in his answer was this'll sound familiar transaction cost. Explain the question. I o. What what kind of questions that? We've talked about it before it was a long time ago. Well, economists brag about the ability of prices to organize decentralized distributed. Activities transactions among people that don't know each other. So feeder kayak in nineteen forty five gives the example of ten if the price of tin goes up. I don't need to know why I just know that I need to accounta- Mi's people who produce ten don't need don't need to know why they'll just try to make more ten entrepreneurs don't need to know why they'll just figure out a way to make substitutes. So the price system direct people to do what they would do if they had perfect information. And that's a great saving. So prices are really wonderful prices organized the economic System cO said, we'll have prices so great. Why are these are these little command economy that we call firms imbedded in them because if I work for Ford Motor Company, I don't put a bolt into the chassis of the Ford car, and then go on EBay an auction it off and find the highest price deliver it to them. And then they put on the Fender. Instead the next guy in the line just puts on the Fender prices not operating year. I'm being ordered to do. Do this an entrepreneur? That's and most people when you ask who tells you what to do. They don't say prices, they say, my boss, so bosses do a lot more ordering around than prices coasts question was where is the margin and firms call this the maker by decision so firms make some things, but they by other things so maybe for a while Ford Motor Company considered going out and making its own steel for cars, but they never grew the wheat for the witches in the employee cafeteria. They always bought something. So that line between maker by coast claimed was based on transactions cost. It was the cost of using the market versus the cost of organizing this transaction within the company. Well, the point of if I say in the book, I think that if coasts were alive today. He might ask a question. Why is it that we own instead of share and the answer is still? Transactions costs the margin between owning and sharing will be determined by transactions costs. The thing is that coast recognized that there was a dynamic component to this that is the size of firms both in terms of the scope of products in the amount of products that they produce will be determined over time by transaction costs. If it's cheaper to buy things in the market, then firms will shrink well the dodge thing about sharing, and I think this is possibly worrisome is that there will be a greater and greater gap between urban in rural people..
