"Where we end up is based on our decisions and so often one decision that we make our life can truly dictate the row in the path that our life in career goes on so though the cliche but is it is emphatically the truth. The one decision can have a huge impact on your life. As watching the documentary on netflix called untold mouse at the palace. And it it documented and it went in depth ensue. The brawl that co occurred between the indiana pacers and the detroit pistons back in two thousand four in november two thousand four the during the two thousand four thousand five season and it went deep into the psyche of yvonne tests. Stephen jackson jimmy. Neil rich miller about what exactly was going on prior to and even during the incident and something stuck out to me that reggie miller said the in that was that he filled that team was primed and determine that was going to win a championship that year. And when you think about it that indiana team had just lost the year before an eastern conference finals to detroit and seven games as detroit. Went on to beat lakers and five games that files And you know three years. Our tears prior from prior from that Indiana lost to the lakers in the nba finals. So this was a team that was primed. Those window was beginning to close. However they had just made a trade for stephen jackson. Stephen jackson recently just wanna shame. Ship with the spurs back in three but they trade. It's for stephen jackson. Stephen jackson provided a scoring punch from the outside That that they were missing. Indiana was missing and so often teams have short windows to win jim shit because they're going up against teams that are quote unquote in their dynasty. Era residence the lakers on the spurs for a little bit on during those early two thousands. You'll find seeing that can squeeze championship in there. Like bike detroit. Did in like miami. Did back in six in five and six teams can squeeze squeeze ashamed of in between the shifting of dynasties in we don't in in reggie miller stated that i said prior today the incident mouth of the powers that indian teams prime to gwen champships thought in. Yes a merit to that. Indiana started out seven and two They had hires points per game scoring average in a in the highest rate defensive deficiency at that time grill ill early in the season. What could have been a clear. Indicator will come later on. I'll run our test was in his prime or certain it reaches prime at that germaine. O'neil was an all star. Reggie miller provided veteran leadership Tomorrow tinsley running the point steady point guard so they had the necessary pieces to make a deep run. But you know one decision that you know ron r. tests made and you can argue the started by him. Filing ben wallace in ashes basketball that was pushing shoving in dallas is all facade in quietest cap lock you. Don't talk about this but a lot of those guys on detroit. Pistons and indiana pacers seems especially during the incident. They're all france. they're all boys. Weren't trying to fight anybody. But one decision that ron made to go up in the stands. We wouldn't ensued after that shifted the entire perspective not just of his career. But also the the organization of indiana in the the mba landscape as a whole. Because now ron gibbs suspended for the rest of the year and he misses out on possibly to in shame ship does end up. Winning with lakers. Indiana never quite reaches that lola prominence even up until today in the shift in power powerhouse an mba is shipped over from From the miami received from indiana over to asensio. so it's how one split-second decision can have such a traffic impact on not just not just on you on the on the people around you. It's well instead. These are things that we have to be. Cognizant of iran are test states himself in documentary. That you know that one decision changes entire career and he like you. That indian team was stuck together in one moult which amy ships. We on occurred after that. He asked for trade from an indiana in key into the game traded and indians. He was never quite the same. Stephen jackson gaza spenders well quite a bit of games janina neil has been for twenty three games a terminal new guy. His suspension Appeal from mistaken still. Just how quickly one decision can change your so. We have to be cartons of these things. We move about in our day to day activities within about the for our actions because every action we have has a positive reaction is what we have to be. Cognizant be aware of that and what once were aware of the of those things we can start to make more healthy. Healthier decisions in more substantial decisions will start to move with purpose a more defined purposes. Well one said light on that one decision can truly just change your life it either extremely positive or detrimental effects to jet be carson of that. But that's all we have for today guys We have covered a lot in his.

China and the U.S. are growing (or not growing) economically apart
"And I WANNA go back a couple of days to this report from the International Monetary Fund saying the global economy was going to shrink this year by three percent and then in that same report. They said you know. We're looking at a rebound in twenty twenty one and I wanna know if you as a trained economist on this radio show today by that. That's a hard one. I I think when we looked at twenty twenty we expected a global rebound from for the year in January. We saw that. The trade agreement remember that last year. That was the biggest crisis. Twenty nineteen trade agreement between the US and China with the Tailwind for global growth more broadly. And so when the World Bank is basically saying is that nineteen just world on pause for a year and it restarts twenty twenty one. I do think the world looks better in twenty twenty one but I think it's going to be hard list to get to three percent. Gdp grouse Lovely in twenty one and been everything. That's going down right now right right. We'll just we'll just note here. The varying sound quality. Here this being live rated but we're all doing From our living rooms and let me ask you to turn to China here for a second. We're doing some China the rest of the program but we have to point out that What had been one of the fastest growing economies in the world shrank last quarter by almost seven percent. It's pretty clear we're not going to get them the Chinese to help drive out of this lockdown right now at the Chinese. Were counting on us to help them to get their economy back on track and since it's still an x force case economy now. The Chinese are worried. Because we'RE NOT GONNA be buying as many of their goods so the whole world is stuck in a funk. Nobody's GonNa be healthy guy that drags everybody through this. We're all going down together and it's very interesting that to me that we're in a in a moment where world leaders can't really see to coalesce around anything but we need each other more than ever need each other to be stable more than ever to be able to get out of it. Well so look Neil on that thought of US meeting each other more than ever. Let's apply that domestically here for a second and the idea that Congress. Now we've exhausted that three hundred fifty billion dollars in the Small Business Administration loan program. The Senate in the House are out on recess and cannot come to terms on what to do next. If you're an American business person what what are you planning for? Because the uncertainty it seems gets worse every day in this crisis but still you have to plan in process rights are. Luckily we have another outlet? Which is the Fed the Federal Reserve? Has I thought they were holding meetings chair Powell's a garage because they were throwing out so many kitchen sinks that this problem they have done everything and probably some things that I haven't thought about to arrest this problem in really make sure that credit flows to households in consumers at around Congress in around Leveraging some of the congressional move says while and enlists remember that banks are actually going to be part of the solution here instead of the problem as they were in two thousand. Eight Bank. Balance Sheets are very strong very solid after ten years of regulation so there is some help stealth flooding even. Congress is on recess for right. Now let me ask you. This is look this is in a way. It's a scary question. It's a little bit cynical but it's something that's been on my mind so yes. The Fed is going great guns and doing what it can part of. What it's able to do is because it has the backing of the Treasury and and some approvals by the Congress. Do you suppose though that it's possible that this crisis accelerate so quickly as Congress can't come to terms that it that it exceeds the capacity of the American government to fix while it depends on how behind Americans themselves get on debt payments and things like that and it depends on the whole that the federal government lied to steepen that dot the base that you're talking to Washington going on right now Is that the Republicans want to send money to the Small Business Administration program. That's been helping small businesses with their payroll and at the same time. Democrats want to send money to the state and to the hospitals that have been dealing with this problem on the front line. Republicans don't WanNa do it there They don't want to send emergency funds stays in hospitals. Which is I just. Don't understand how to be an ideological thing. We'RE GONNA get ideological here. We're all GONNA be in big trouble because this is a problem that is going to require creative thinking outside any problem that That had faced the American people. And it's GonNa require us to think about the economy in two different stages one is. What is the Post Lockdown Pre Vaccine Colona virus economy? Going to look like and it's GonNa be one but we have to shift workers to contract tracing we're going to have to ramp up testing teach people how to be back if they've gotta be a completely different economy and then we have to think of how to transition the economy from that economy into a post vaccine economy which is an attempt to really truly normalized for world. And there's no I know ideology belongs in any of that discussion. Because if you don't increase the size of the federal government or state government or any government you can't get from the please vaccine pays to the Po- sexy is this Neil Miller real quick and I mean like thirty seconds. Neela it is fundamentally a discussion once again of the role of government in this economy. Right government right now. Is the prime the pump right? We know that things are going to get worse before they get that. We just started the social containment in late March or seeing the effects of that head Americans now but eventually it will get better because we're also seeing progress in testing and innovations in vaccines and treatment. It's a hard road road till then but look what already. The American people have gotten shut down an economy voluntarily to attack head on health crisis that was projected a few short weeks ago to be much worse than it is already turning out to be so in that sense. There is hope that we have enough ingenuity among us all to combat this crisis and to get through it together
