"State officials in Texas are working to pull money away from companies accused of boycotting the oil and gas industry It's part of a trend in some red states to target financial firms that practice

that withhold business from oil and gas one of Texas's biggest industries Here's how Republican state representative Phil king put it in a committee hearing This bill sent a strong message to both Washington and Wall Street that if you boycott Texas energy then Texas will boycott you But to figure out which financial firms two boycott it helps to have a list So after the bill passed the Texas

state representative who used to help oversee the state's pension fund She says one example of how tricky the law is is that not only do financial firms need to be vetted But so do the investment plans they offer Take Wells Fargo for instance If they have any mutual funds or exchange traded funds in their portfolios that prohibit or limit investment in fossil fuels then that is problematic The task of finding who qualified for the boycott proves so complicated that the comptroller's office hired a consulting firm called MSCI to get a list of companies taking aggressive climate action But as state officials negotiated a price they realized that they could be breaking the law by trying to implement it That's because MSCI itself has aggressive climate goals that may put it on the boycott list Emails obtained by the investigative reporting group floodlight show how Texas state lawyers and MSCI had to come up with a workaround to the law to work together I asked Greenberg what that says about the new law It says it's difficult to implement and hard to research The comptroller's office agrees in an email it wrote this process has proven challenging given the scope of firms that we've

advocates for moving away from fossil fuels When you look at the statute itself it's got an exception for for example ordinary business decisions What that means is if a company decides not to invest in oil because it thinks it will make more money elsewhere then it won't be targeted by the law It's obviously intended to scare acid owners and asset managers into not divesting But I think if you were to divest because of financial reasons that's an ordinary business decision for an asset manager or an asset owner But those loopholes don't mean the law won't have an impact Similar rules have

"Brought to you by State Farm, like a good neighbor, State Farm is there. Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi sent it to four years in prison following military coup, by Amy gunia. Myanmar's former leader, Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced to four years in prison on Monday, after she was found guilty of incitement and violating COVID-19 restrictions following a closed door trial. The prison term covers only the first in a series of charges, which could see Aung San Suu Kyi, who was ousted in a February 1st military coup, sentenced to decades in prison by Myanmar's coup leaders. Human rights watchers say the charges against Aung San Suu Kyi whose national league for democracy or NLD won a November 8th, 2020 election in a landslide are a thinly veiled justification for keeping the popular pro democracy leader behind bars. No one is fooled by today's sentencing, Charles Santiago, the chair of the ASEAN parliamentarians for human rights, a group of liberal lawmakers from Southeast Asian nations, said in a statement after the sentencing. Since the day of the coup, it's been clear that the charges against Aung San Suu Kyi in the dozens of other detained members of parliament have been nothing more than an excuse by the junta to justify their illegal power grab. Aung San Suu Kyi's incitement charge as the result of statements posted on the NLD's Facebook page after she was detained by the military and the coronavirus charge related to a campaign appearance before the election. The country's ousted president win meant was also sentenced to four years in prison on Monday. Several other cases against Aung San Suu Kyi are now being tried, including charges over the alleged unregistered import in use of walkie talkies by her security guards, and corruption. Aung San Suu Kyi, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 and other members of her party were swept up in predawn raids in the February 1st coup, and she has been detained ever since. The military's power grab came after Myanmar's generals complained of fraud in the November election, although international observers did not report major voting irregularities. At the time of the military coup, officials said they were assuming control for one year under emergency powers granted to them in the constitution, but experts warned that the coup seemed likely to undo the country's hard won democratic reforms. The country began a series of democratic reforms in 2011, and its fragile push for democracy had centered around Aung San Suu Kyi. It's not the first time Suu Kyi has been imprisoned by the military. She spent 15 years under house arrest before her release in 2010. This time, it's unlikely Suu Kyi who won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 and was once called a Beacon of hope by former president Barack Obama for her nonviolent resistance against a military law receive as much international support. Suu Kyi's defense of the military's 2017 atrocities against the Rohingya, a mostly Muslim ethnic minority that live in western Myanmar, badly tarnished her international reputation. She is no longer this moral person who has suffered, or who is suffering at the hands of the Burmese military anymore, says mongs Arnie, cofounder of foresee dot co, a group of Southeast Asian scholars that focuses on democratic struggles in the region. Still, Suu Kyi remained popular domestically, and the coup was met with nationwide nonviolent demonstrations, which the military has cracked down on with shocking violence. More than 1300 people have been killed by the military, according to the organization, the assistance association for political prisoners. Opposition to military rule remains strong, and some protesters have taken up arms, joining ethnic minority militias, which have long fault the military. On Sunday, at least three people were reportedly killed in Yangon. Myanmar's largest city. When a military vehicle plowed into a march of peaceful protesters. There are a lot of different ways to get into wellness. Did you know that people say laughter is good for your heart and then exercise can actually improve chronic pain and walking is nearly as healthy as running. You know what else people say?.

"Korea reports out a record daily number of critical COVID patients today The COVID crisis in Europe is not slowing the governments are trying to figure out the next step German Chancellor Angela Merkel's pitch to impose a two week lockdown turned down by a new coalition incoming Chancellor Olaf Schultz says he will review vaccination mandates France plans to reinforce measures including masks and social distancing mandates Italy is going to target mainly unvaccinated people in a bid to shield itself from what's going on all around it Watching in Singapore health minister Yi Kong says he hopes that the high vaccination rate will shield it from what Europe is seeing Parallel government floated by supporters of Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi aimed to raise as much as $1 billion from a sale of bonds to fund its efforts to topple the military regime retailers in the U.S. are sounding the alarm on the growing organized retail crimes spree three men found guilty in the Georgia killing of ahmaud Arbery and the racially charged trial in Georgia and the Sydney morning Herald saying Australia is considering outstanding any government officials to the Beijing Winter Olympics in San Francisco I'm at Baxter This is Bloomberg Kathleen Ed thank you so very much We wanted to get right back to our conversation now with Fred Newman co head of Asian economics at HSBC But I just have to come back to the bank of career because I was you know you've been arguing for a while that the normalization the rate hiking from the be okay would be fairly measured You didn't see another rate hike What until the third quarter of next year But now you know they just hike rates They revise their inflation forecasts considerably higher House prices are up but 20% over the past year or so The household keeps rising Do you really think they're going to be so measured Yes we still believe they're going to be measured in one way to look at this is that the bank of Korea has only limited headway for tightening policy The neutral policy rate is perhaps 50 basis points away from where we are now So it's very unusual for central banks to hike above neutral So once you hike one two more times you're already exerting quite a bit of drag on the economy So that's one area The other areas we do think global trade will slow We might even have a trade recession in Asia next year natural Korea matters a lot So you've got to be careful not to overdo it here on the tightening Where do you come down I just want a quick quick follow Do you still wins the first rate hike going to come or the next one Are they really going to wait till the third quarter Do you think they could do it in January No we think they're going to wait a little bit There's also a political timing here because we have presential elections coming up and it's unusual for the bank's free it's kind of moving in front of that And so that's why there's a bit of a pause built in here for political reasons as well I'm wondering about the risk of the oil market right now I mean the focus in the coming week is obviously on the OPEC meeting and the risk of retaliation after we saw in the last week several governments led by the U.S. releasing crude from their respective strategic reserves if OPEC kind of gives them the bird so to speak and it fails to increase output because of a way of just kind of pushing back against this move to add more supply to the market and we get a spike in prices What does that mean Well what's kind of signal that OPEC is has a quite a bit of leverage again We've seen arguably OPEC becoming more cohesive and decision making in its impact on the market And so it was a bit of a revival of OPEC power on the global oil market And so as you rightly say OPEC could kind of do quite a bit of damage in terms of counteracting the policy releasing oil But we also should keep in mind that there is a lot being driven here in the short term by concerns of a colder weather in the northern hemisphere fundamentally though as the economy slows world economy slows in Asia in particular but also elsewhere into 2022 Energy demand growth should start to ease off and hopefully we'll get stabilization from a demand balance coming through the course of next year You mentioned China's consumer price inflation being well behaved Of course our producer pricing inflation is through the roof But more broadly what about China's growth going into 2022 They're a driver for the Asian region They're a driver to a certain extent for the world are they going to slow Are they going to pick up Well probably pick up a touch because near stall speed at the moment So having a further deceleration I think would be very hard to stomach cost because we have political transition next year in China But I think this is crucial We're not going to see this big reflation we've seen in the past On the housing market the government is very determined not to have accelerating prices that are very concerned about debt So stabilization is one way to characterize this a bit of a sequential growth pickup But in annualized terms really 5 5 and a half percent at the far cry where we were pre-pandemic All right Thank you so much Fred Newman head of Asian economics at HSBC Well coming up we are going to have a very interesting follow on Jamie's diamonds inadvertent bad joke He had to apologize.

"All right Douglas COVID crisis in Europe is not slowing The governments are trying to figure out the next step German and Chancellor Angela Merkel's pitch to impose a two week lockdown turned on by a new coalition incoming Chancellor Olaf Schultz says he will review vaccination mandates France plans to reinforce measures including masks and social distancing mandates Italy is going to target mainly unvaccinated people in a bid to shield itself from what's going on around it In Singapore they're watching health administer ong Ye Kung says he hopes a high vaccination rate will shield it for what is going on in Europe A parallel government floated by the supporters of Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi aims to raise as much as $1 billion from the sale of bonds to fund its efforts to topple the military regime there will have a few more details at the bottom of the hour Retailers in the U.S. are sounding the alarm on the growing organized retail crime spree and three men found guilty in the Georgia killing of ahmaud Arbery and the racially charged trial in San Francisco Ahmad Baxter This is Bloomberg Stephen All right thanks a lot Let's get back to our guest this half hour It's pre misread of rate strategy at TD securities global Obviously we talk a lot about inflation I'd like to get your read on the labor market We had those jobless claims falling to the lowest since 1969 but likely seasonal distortions there but we do have non farm payroll for November out next week What is your reading on the labor market right now And how would that impact what the fed is going to do So we're seeing continued momentum in terms of job growth So we're looking for another good number We don't have a forecast for next week yet But I wouldn't be surprised in the 300 to 500,000 range which is close to consensus So expecting to see continued good numbers I think big question is really on the labor market Do we see labor force participation rise to people reenter the labor force that hasn't happened in the last few months And our thought has been it just takes a while that are friction people may have waited for a higher wage or a better job fit But over time we do expect people to come back So that's something beyond the headline numbers that I'll be watching for Those claims numbers we didn't put too much in stock in today's numbers given the seasonal issues But it does reinforce their job losses a few There's the facility recovery speaking up So I think as we're seeing a healthy labor market it's just has COVID impacted labor for participation more structurally And that's going to have big implications for the fed Because I think as much as they want to see a strong labor market they also want to see whether people are returning to the labor force That will allow them to hike in a more patient or they can afford to let the economy run hot If the labor market has structurally changed and there were hints of that in the minutes that the fed is questioning the longer term impact If people are not returning to the labor force then it's tight and then wage inflation can continue to move higher than it can become a wage price spider I think that puts a lot of pressure on the fed to exit sooner So I think it is going to come down to the labor market Even more than inflation Okay Priya the time is a little bit compressed so I want to change subjects a little bit and refer back to this latest exchange between Jamie Dimon and China Do you think it's colossal stupidity by diamond or colossal insecurity by the CCP Oh that's a tough one I just think when there's heightened scrutiny on either side people react and I'm not sure why Jimmy diamond made that comment but I'm hoping that people can look past it and see the commitment that you come from

Korea is going to fall in New Zealand high grades today at the be okay meeting Yes We do expect I mean there were early both central banks were early in terms of hiking and I do think it's going to be about divergence All through next year there will be central banks like we think the fed but certainly the ECB even the RBA that will be later than what's price trend And then there'll be the bank of Canada Bank of England be okay RB and Z that just have to go faster The small open economies much more sensitive to inflation pressures And so they'll have to respond So you like plenty of sovereigns over treasuries New Zealand is one What else We like Canada I think it comes down to which countries have already priced in the hiking cycle And so those rates have already priced in a high terminal rate the endpoint of the hiking cycle is appropriately priced Canada is one New Zealand is one Against I think the U.S. were pricing in the start but as we were talking about earlier the end just seems very pessimistic So if the fed raises rates up to two and a half as they themselves forecast then that tenure U.S. menu can get up to two and a half So I'd say a lot of these countries which.

Why is Aung San Suu Kyi at the International Court of Justice

"Awarding someone the Nobel Prize for peace is always tempting. Fate saw cha the vagaries of human affairs. Yesterday's warmonger is tomorrow's peacemaker and vice versa. That it's not really the Norwegian Nobel Committees Fault when Pulse Charity Makes Mockery of some of their judgements. When you give a piece Gong to someone like Henry Kissinger oh Yasser Arafat? It's just a risk you run. And it is nevertheless startling to see an actual Nobel peace laureate appearing at the International Court of Justice in The Hague to defend the government they lead against allegations of genocide. It's pretty much the one thing that isn't supposed to happen. History had given us the opportunity to give up our best just for a cause in which we believed when the Nobel Committee chose to honor me. The road had chosen of my own free will aw became less lonely path to follow sang suci daughter of the founder of modern Myanmar Aung San and a formidable politician diplomat and and activist in her own. Right won the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen ninety-one at the time she was rivaled only by Nelson Mandela as a universally admired Royat. Avatar of all. That was good displaying exemplary courage in resisting. All that was bad. She led the National League for Democracy as it faced down only terrifying and ruthless military GIONTA which had turned Myanma into North Korea with Palm. Trees saying SUCI spent most of the period between Nineteen nineteen ninety nine and two thousand and ten under house arrest. She was a hero aside from the Nobel Peace Prize. She was awarded the Sakharov Prize. US Congressional Channel Gold Medal and Presidential Medal of freedom an honorary order of Australia. Honorary Citizenship of Canada and Amnesty International's ambassador of conscience since award. Luke pestle made a film about her. U2 wrote a song about and in time she triumphed the NLD won a landslide election victory in two thousand and fifteen though denied the presidency on a technicality. She became state councillor effectively. Myanmar's prime minister it. It was hailed worldwide as a victory for decency determination and patience and now she's denying that she is some kind of an accessory to crimes against humanity he sang Succi has been fair to say on a journey. These ban mind this complex situation and the challenge to sovereignty and security already in our country when you're assessing the intent of those who attempted to deal with the rebellion. Surely under the circumstances genocidal decider intent cannot be only hypothesis loan and it is important to be clear that while Aung Sang. SUCCI is in The Hague. She is not in the dark. She is appearing voluntarily and has not been charged with any crime the allegation before the ICJ EJ is against her country. Not Her the case has been brought by the Gambia. Backed by the fifty-seven members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Asian a coterie which includes several nations who might want to pause before mounting their high horses where human rights are concerned. The allegation is essentially essentially that Myanmar's recent persecution of the Hindu people Myanmar's Muslim minority. Who lived mostly in the country's raccoon state amounts to genocide this? This is a term with specific legal meanings and it will be for the court to determine if events in Myanmar meet the threshold. What is known is bad enough? Enough since two thousand and sixteen perhaps a million ranger have fled Myanmar mostly to neighboring Bangladesh journalists NGOs and the UN win have reported a consistent pattern of atrocious violence much of it directed at civilians not excluding children Myanmar's military known as has the top Madore have consistently claimed that they are waging a counter insurgency against Islamist terrorists though Sang Suci does not directly command the Tatmadaw. Aw this is also the line that she has held. The most sympathetic imaginable interpretation of aren't sang Suu Cheese behavior. And it's a reach is that that she is still in some respects the prisoner of the same military which once held her under house arrest. She may have calculated. This is a compromise. She has to to make to maintain such democracy as me unmanned now has that if she takes hold in the military the military will once again take charge of the country. This is a question unlikely to interest the hundreds of thousands over hinge in now wondering if they'll ever be able to go home again and they of course are the ones who have have survived the Tatmadaw's pogroms justice for the victims.

"Well, after almost four years in Bangkok, southeast Asia correspondent, Liam Cochrane is finishing his posting is heading back to a stranger in his final correspondence report. He takes us back to where it all began. I remember manicured grass in a row of seated Buddha statues looking on serenely was sitting in a temple in the Lao capital Vientiane, it was a moment of quiet in the midst of this sort of shambolic, backpacking adventure, typical of a nineteen year old another sounds cheesy. But as I was sitting there in the temple cloister, I was suddenly overwhelmed by what I can only describe as an epiphany a strong calm feeling that I would return here that my career as a journalist would be in southeast Asia. If he is laid out with a journalism degree under my belt and a burning desire to become a foreign correspondent, I did just that traveling back to Laos to fulfill that destiny witnessed by those Sahlin buddhis- with their half closed is the fact that Laos was a communist country with no real English language media. Somehow hadn't occurred to me, of course, there were no jobs for journalists and my dream of light. He'd is effortlessly tapping out Graham Greene, esque novels, in Vientiane came to a somewhat abrupt halt, but I carried on through Laos by boat and bus ox-cart and bicycle stopping for a memorable few days at the giant stone, jars Nippon's Yvonne, where a kind archaeologist explained the mystery. No one knew who made these jars evidence of their ancient civilization remained elusive in Cambodia, I got my first journalism job. I took myself to Nepal for a few years after that, then back to a strategy where I started with the IB see doing radio learning how to shoes and eventually guide to Papua New Guinea in light twenty fifteen. My dream deed, actually come true, and I was posted. He had a Bangkok as the ABC's southeast Asia correspondent arriving from the tough streets of port-moresby Bangkok was like some kind of wonderland the food the freedom I met the team, a Jim. Office manager ups on and driver Cohen to they were plenty of stories to get stuck into in Myanmar Aung San Suu cheese. Party swept the election. My shouted my piece to camera over the singing cheering crowds of supporters gathered outside party headquarters after all the bloodshed the years of military repression and the stoic suffering of on San Succi under house arrest. It was a sense that myemma was finally on the right path October of two thousand sixteen saw an event that had been coming for a while. But still, brought Thailand to it's knees the death of the widely adored king. Bhumipol Adonia day, it was an emotional day here yesterday as the king's body was transferred from the hospital where he died to the Grand Palace. Thousands of people lined the streets dressed in black many of them holding the king's portrait. There were tears and a somber. Silence. As the procession passed by in August twenty seventeen myemma took a very dark, turn LA. They've been violence before against the Muslim hangers, but nothing like this a coordinated purge with soldiers police, and civilians joining to kill rape and burn the villages of Rina's driving around seven hundred thousand across the border to Bangladesh where they formed the world's largest refugee camp. Some stories went the other way from grim to hopeful to joyous. The rescue of the wild boys football team from a cave in northern Thailand had the world gripped a real life thriller with a fairy tale ending. Yes, Beverly this is the cross that I've been waiting to do for days now to announce officially that all members of the wild boar kademi football club are safely out of the cave. It is just unbelievably good news, the whole world's attention and hopes have been pinned on this and it's just amazing to finally be out of sight, writing a book about that risk has certainly been a career highlight. I guess it's fitting that one of my last stories. Here will be about those mysterious stone jars in Laos with scientists still trying to learn the origin story of these impressive megaliths compared to my early days as a dreamy backpacker, I guess of hardened up a bit. But so who's the region the Mekong countries, I've covered have become increasingly authoritarian Thailand on the military control, a genocide. Myanmar Cambodia is a one party state, Laos remains isolated and Vietnam is making money. But there's still no room to go against the grain. It's still a wonderful region to visit. And to report from a still get a buzz at of trying to understand the complexities. And I've experienced more laughs and generosity than I could ever repay being a foreign correspondent. In south East Asia has been my dream for twenty years, so leaving this post is a turning point. It's definitely not goodbye. I'll be back for sure. But I'm looking forward to some time in Australia carrying on with the and also teaching video journalism at a university. So thank you. Listener for your interest over the years. For the Twitter comments for sharing my stories without you without the perception, that a stray liens do want to know what's happening around the world. These correspondent positions would disappear. Your engagement with the is deeply appreciated. Thanks back to Liam Cochran for his reporting over the region for the past four years, Catherine, this will be taking over that most fascinating region for a reporter in the next few weeks.
