"Trouble is the challenges of humanity are more and more complicated. Peace in the Middle East involves everything from agriculture, water policy, military planning, religion. I mean, it's endless. And history, how do you do that if everybody is specialist? Well, the answer is, if you are the new Medici, you can force like the Medici, the real medicine did when they would send a ship to the new world. They didn't just send merchants and sailors. They sent sculptors and they sent architects and they sent musicians and they sent painters and these people would sit next to each other all the way over and all the scientists and botanists and the rest of it. They would sit next to each other three meals a day on the voyage over. And then, on the voyage home, you know, a few months later, and they collaborated in what they were trying to do, which of course, unfortunately, was to exploit the new territories and kill off the indigenous people, but leave that aside. Their knowledge had many trappings of multidisciplinary thought because their sponsored the Medici. So bring it up to the present day. We have a number of billionaires. I was with one last night. He can do whatever he wants. His name's Nicholas Berg. He inherited some money, but he made it much bigger. He's a Swiss French American investor, art collector and so forth. But what is he actually doing with his money? He gives away a $1 million prize a year to someone who has helped to shape thought towards solutions for huge challenges like how do we make democracy work? What is the future of medical research so he does that? And then he's got this institute thing where he brings people who hate each other's guts to sit in a tranquil place and to try to find the middle. So he might bring president Xi and the president of the United States. To sit in tranquility to try to do non belligerent things or I don't know an Iranian leader and, you know, someone from NATO or from the European community. That's what he's going to do. He has so much money. He may well put a dent in some of these intractable multidisciplinary everybody beating their chest. I'm very interested that he seems to have a lot of women working on it with him. I thought for a long time, women tend to not punch each other in the nose. I think we are just in the area of democracy. I think we're in a time of grave danger. I don't remember a time where democracy in the west was so challenged where people were so polarized. Well, what do you do about that? No point in cursing the gathering darkness. I think have to try and find the middle with people of disparate viewpoint and disparate, opposite facing equal and opposite power. And that's what he's going to do, but he's only one. There are, you know, thousands of billionaires can't help us around the world. And I think what will lift them up and also make them hugely admirable in the eyes of their children grandchildren and great grandchildren. If they do something alongside making more money, nothing the matter with making more money, but doing well, while doing good is a very big deal, and it works for foster kids, crown wards, looked after kids. It also works for billionaires. And long May they thrive. They are almost the only place if you have if you're an entrepreneur and you have an outside the box idea. Is this thing on four wheels, but we haven't built one yet. Can you please give me some money to build it? And then we'll pilot it and see if it's any good. Who's going to give you money? Government would laugh at you. Business would laugh at you. Established foundations will laugh at you. What are your outcomes stats? Well, we haven't got any yet is what we call blue sky. So in the venture cap area, we absolutely do have early stage investors, but where are they and who can they possibly be in the make the world a better place department? I think it's the new Medici. You go and you inspire them with a story. You describe that which doesn't exist yet. A skill of pitching which you learn as a film producer, you're constantly explaining things that don't exist yet. Well, it's this story. There's this man who and then and this and what and in the end this, and if you are, if you can inspire emotion in the heart of whoever you're pitching to, they give you the money or their greater direct the film or they agree to star in it and then you make a film. And then you stand there and say, oh my God, what do we tell these people? We were going to be able to do. Now we have to actually do it. Same thing over in the let's save the planet department. So that's the new Medici. I love them very much. So is the new Medici we have to finish we're already at the end of the show, but is it an organization or is it sort of loose right now? And it's just asking people to step into that as a ownership. I tell you what I would love a member of the new Medici to do. I'd love them to email me. And say, okay, I'm a new Medici person. What shall we do? Because I would do the new medicine version of what I did where myosin said, what would you do with X dollars from the foster kids? But I would do it with the new Medici. I would build a breeder reactor to propel the new Medici and their grandchildren as their spotters into finding new solutions for old problems of which we need a lot because the old solutions dove are not working. No, I agree. And that's a great place for us to finish. I want to make sure that people know how to reach you, Peter, and find out more about how all the resources are, et cetera and how they can connect to those resources. So if you could just tell people how they can find out more about you and the resources that would be wonderful. Yeah, so the core website is Peter at Samuelson.

"With us good morning thank you very much yeah so a little background on me I'm actually a small business owner in Oakland so I have been going through every single every other small business owners going through right now I want to talk about the paycheck protection program in particular because I know you know we will fight through that and because it's handled through banks sort of the execution of that is spotty but Hey so I know how the discussion earlier was we have all these programs are designed to help all the different sectors of business but the implementation of them and you know it seems a kind of a falling apart so you know what kind of advice would you have for small business owners that are trying to navigate you know these systems that are breaking down or all kind of looking at a ticking clock big question about implementation here Laura Tyson we go do you have some wisdom to shed for a Chrysler question to Sean would be have you managed to do it so you went to the bank the this is administered through the banks you have to usually have a landing or arrangement with the bank to begin with some kind of relationship I do know some people who've gone and they've gotten it really fast what's what's your what do you think of the implementation barriers for you sorry with this company yeah I'm I'm here okay so you know for us for a small company were or are about we're a little less than five employees and I you yeah we did apply for a bank that we have our lending arrangement with and you know what it looks like is happening at the same thing that any other bank would decide right so it's easier for a bank to make five ten million dollar loan then five thousand islands got it or not yeah you know where the bottom of the list you're at the bottom of the list yeah okay yeah I'm not I hi I recognize the implementation issues what I what I have said is even in my remarks is I just think people have to it the facility exists it's not it is the execution capabilities were not there when the facility was set up I think that it it will it will work it will work with a lag I don't think that that handles you know issues of of of your firm over the time period where there is a lag and you don't have the long is not addressed here so I think it's a well designed program but I think we were not at all set up for execution and by the way because there was a discussion of the German approach because I bite I think the the the combination of unemployment insurance and the small business lending facility which is supposed to be the case if you use that that loan you get it turns into a grant if you're using it to maintain your employees and pay your rent and maintain your operations that's it in a sentence our version if you will of course I've got a little bit so all I would do is say that the banks are struggling to get together in a way to execute more efficiently and effectively and I wish you luck in getting through finally I think you will love to use on thank you for calling us this morning I want to go back if I may do you Peter because I want to talk more with you about what other countries are doing I'm looking at an email here from a listener named Lori who writes rather than giving out cash individuals and businesses as we're doing I thought Norway's approach the corona was better they funded businesses to keep their employees paid while sheltering at home keeping both the businesses and employees solvent so they can come back sooner yeah I mean that that the other approach and I don't know which is necessarily better if you think about it the two balls are to make sure that people can put bread on the table and to keep companies from dissolving and you say you're looking to do that in the most cost effective way to keep both of those goals it I can I understand the argument in favor of keeping people on the payroll but if there's no work for them to do there's not a lot of difference between that and having them they'll sit at home sheltering in place while the company it goes into the induced coma so it's it's going to have one a six one half dozen the other wouldn't say either approach is clearly superior the other thing about the U. U. S. approach so the unemployment insurance one of those I don't remember which of the speakers mentioned this but people sometimes choose they're going to choose the unemployment insurance route because the the way we structure that program the actual pay you will get during this period of time which is adding to the normal unemployment benefits is six hundred dollars additional weekly actually for first for workers who kind of go in and out of jobs who are in the the kind of the it's often times called precarious employment relationships are not long term employees they're going in and out maybe they're working for multiple employers disk unemployment insurance option is gonna work better than trying to maintain all of those are very small businesses by and in the Norway approach I think because I think that workers themselves may say I don't want to do this and the employers may say yeah that's better for you right now go on to you I and you can come back so we don't have to rebuild this notion of breaking we don't we don't have great companies and so we but sometimes what can happen is that there is a flexible in and out of the work force and you're not going to break the company because you're not breaking their talent chain so I I think I would agree the jury's out of the U. S. approach versus say the Norway approach to Norway approach in some ways it's simpler but the U. but the US approach is very consistent with the kinds of institutions we already have in place unemployment insurance and small business loans so we're using that to work we're giving an extra bonus let me give to another caller here let me bring Catherine from Berkeley annex Catherine join us here on the air all right yeah my name's Katherine I'm in Berkeley and I'm also a small business owner like the previous caller but what I've noticed is we've done everything we've applied for PPP at all and we've we've even apply for a forbearance our mortgage we later my number off my husband still on the payroll but what one huge bill and what no one seems to be bringing up is is health insurance we have a company plan and we can't really afford it I always hear about are people losing their health insurance but nothing about any of the health insurance companies already taken their their cut out of our you know April payment the R. eight premium but it's a huge deal and I just don't understand how it is that we can't get a forbearance on our health insurance especially since we're not going to the doctor yeah Catherine I appreciate the question an effective looking at email her from listening to Serra this is I think we should just stop everything no bankruptcies no mortgages no rent no anything just pause everything no one knows anyone anything the government pays for necessities well healthcare is indeed Laura Tyson a subsidy so what about what would happen to bring up her well I did mention that one of the structural weaknesses of the U. S. economy going into this and underscored here and we shouldn't accept this way is that too much of our health insurance system is linked to employment that test should not have been the case we but I believe the state of California so so one of the things that's happened here is that the states have re opened some states not all have re opened their health insurance network so that you people who can apply for health insurance they don't have on on the exchanges so that's one thing you have health insurance the other thing of course is at it may be the case that a number of people who need to health insurance don't have it right now go into fall into Medicaid so there's a major Medicaid expansion going on which which it should I don't see I don't see a way out in the current situation right now for employers who signed up for health insurance to pay health insurance premiums right now that's not part of the any of the packages I've seen hello I appreciate the problem but the the payroll costs so I guess what I would say is in the Texan program the loans that exist to small businesses to maintain your employees I would assume that part of the cost of maintaining your employees is the health insurance premiums you're paying so I would assume that that would be in a sense something that the mall that the small business loans would want to cover just like they want to cover rent I mean so it essentially they're saying for those the card you need to spend to keep going let's say that the small business loans are meant to do that for two months now one of the problems here is it's only two months off the exit strategy is slower than that this is going to be a problem but for two months what these laws are meant to do is help small business covers the cost the cost of maintaining their payrolls and that would include health insurance costs let me Jerry Nichols or go back to you on this and I think what we're talking about really revenue here as usual and I wonder if you could say something to address the effect of all this on state and local governments because there's been a really sharp contraction a dramatic contraction in income and taxable sales and and obviously more demands on healthcare which is across the board sure it affects and the state government in in two ways one here is that consumers are saving more of what they're spending money on here is our groceries and in pharmaceuticals which are not that the sales tax revenue is definitely going down and the state is heavily dependent on high income earners in high income earners have much more volatile income streams to drop dramatically you know during recessions during economic contractions and and so the state is about to experience a you know a fairly sharp production in its revenue stream the sort of good news to the extent that there is some in this is that this is something that California's been talking about for a long time and so we do have a rainy day fund what led axes multiple funds and it adds up to around twenty billion dollars and there are ways to achieve some savings they gets one cut back twenty five billion dollars and some additional borrowing plus the transfers from the federal government still they're going to be cutbacks at the state level at the at the local level a sales tax revenue is dropping so that's going to hurt local governments but one of the unintended consequences of prop thirteen is it is still the case that the vast majority of properties in the state of California are assessed the value that's less than the market value and sell property taxes are unlikely to go down and that's what happened actually did in the in the last recession so state and local governments are going to be heard in the going to be cutting back California is it a little better shape than probably most other states because we've had that dramatic experience of the last two possessions in the middle been doing some planning but but it's certainly not good news for either state or local governments in this regard Nicholas Berg once again is director and senior economist with UCLA Anderson forecast and because economics editor for Bloomberg businessweek quick question from Ronald for you Peter he wants to know what all the new money being printed in the form of the stimulus package lead to massive inflation nobody's talking about this question all I love that question I would say no the quick answer is no let me explain why if if the money's not actually being printed when the fed buys assets it what it does is it creates reserves so it used to own a treasury bond you sell your treasury bond and now instead you have a checking account at the fed it's not new money it's just changing the composition of your balance sheet and the fed's balance sheet trading assets around now money is created when banks make loans and people take.

"John a pleasure to welcome James for ring the author of the new book they will have to die now which is the story of muscle and the fall of the caliphate the Islamic state these advanced are fresh the caliphate ended its reign of terror in most all in the middle of twenty seventeen officially James Texas into the offensive both sides are viewed here and his very careful reporting for distinguished publications including The New York Times and National Geographic James very good evening to you thank you very much for this congratulations we began with the family the family and because our campus I refugee camp two brothers Abu Omar and Abu Fahad how did you meet them and what do we need to know about them initially for your version of vision of the fall of muscle good evening to you good evening to you thank you for having me John I am met Abu Omar just outside of Mosul Abu Omar and his family lived in Mosul in east Mosul had done for generations I met Abu Omar as he and his family were fleeing the fighting and muscle in the initial days of the of the battle within the city itself I met him at was what was essentially a way station between the city and the refugee camps our the the fall of twenty sixteen this was October this would have been early November of twenty of twenty sixteen exactly so the the Kurdish troops had just finished their operations on the side of the city and now the Iraqi special forces in regular troops have penetrated the city and the fighting was bitter as it would be for many months afterwards and many months flowers those who could and those were willing were fleeing the city in order to go to refugee camps the ones coming from certain neighborhoods in east side were congregating at this way station where I met Abu Omar who which was essentially a bombed out house where everyone was waiting to be put on the backs of trucks dump trucks and cargo trucks in order to be transported to refugee camps around the country Abu Omar just started talking to me seeing that I was trying to speak with with the idea with the displaced people and he came up to me and began talking he asked me if I knew what was going on if I knew how he could be compensated of his house was damaged if he knew which camp if I knew which camp he was going to because when a rocky IDPs saw of foreign people in particular white people internally displaced people that's right IGP IGP when they saw people such as me they assumed we had information on that I could help them of course was not true I wanted information from him he soon got on a truck but I took his number before he did before he did and kept in touch and I went and visited him in the house or camp the refugee camp where he was living with his daughters and son which is about an hour's drive east of Mosul in semi autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan yes you're heading east to Kurdistan Diaz was a bastion refuge in the early days of the fighting when most of fell in twenty fourteen to the original Islamic state invaders and then from twenty fourteen and tell James me Thabo aren't twenty sixteen Kurdistan had become the launching pad for what we're going to describe this muscle aba Amar has two children Omar and I his brother who he's permanently alienated from by the time you're he there in the caps because his brother suggests we can't live in this one ten maybe we should get to Tanzania is out of a hot yeah who is who is he what was he doing and muscle before they just quickly I bookmark should three kids I mean and more yet you know there's other you know who you probably forgot to she never really spoke but I as a great source of information in fact Abu Fahad daughter was the best source information but I eventually became as you you you're right she ventured became an excellent source of information in any event Abu for hot in Abu armor brothers as you say brothers within a family I believe of five or six in toto they had fallen out as you point out because Abu Omar did not want to share a tent with his brother in the refugee camp in Mosul they'd live very close to one another Abu Omar was a security guard at a cell phone tower Abu Fahad was better off better educated he was a a military medic and then the head nurse in a hospital and had a little pharmacy on the side there had always been tension be twin them because Abu Omar was always borrowing money from his brother and his other siblings and the other siblings thought of Abdul Mars being slightly de classe and and they were also worried about how he treated his children than most so before the battles there would have been considered middle class lower middle class muscles actually fairly wealthy city in fact yeah as you know rock is a middle income country many people forget that when we talk about Iraq it's a developed a middle income country Abu Omar would have been considered hi and poor Abu Fahad lower middle class probably their children are critical to this telling of this tale we mention Omar who is I believe nineteen years old and above hot has a son how moody he's sixteen when you first meet at that time home when I was sixteen years and both these young men are they you have a translator with you do they have the English are they speaking in Thailand are the families yes they're speaking entirely in and in Arabic and they spoke a little bit of Kurdish mind translator was Kurdish but yes there mainly speaking in Arabic I think they understood some English but they couldn't speak on it their vision of America can be entertaining so I want to mention of one point who is it up with a hotter although Omar says let's trade cities also take Tulsa that there was he will he really wanted to move to Chicago or is it a lot Alaska maybe Abu Fahad said that yeah he said why don't we just traded and his and and how moody was with him when he really wanted to move to Hawaii I like to move his ambition are his love it yeah yeah the those kids are wonderful he wants a tall thin blonde American girl will for him and for his father's specifically other wanted to a new wife as well and his sister is I ma ha ha ha exactly yes and she is content with Iraq I think you said she wants to move to R. B. she loves a rock and she she loves Mosul and she wanted to live move back to muscle if it was a love of all that she would take our bill if she had to put her great desire was to move back to Mosul she was the sort of person young though she was I think fifteen when I wrote the story you could tell that she was a patriot in the best sense of the term meaning she loves the history of her country she loves the Iraqi people and she wanted to stay there to help that they lost their mother in two thousand and six at a check point how James according to Abu Fahad he and his wife and their kids were driving and the Kurdish and or American soldiers at the checkpoint and muscle misinterpreted their intentions and opened fire on the car killing the wife a stunning detail about these children because they remember they remember vividly and they when our before had was telling me the story they began crying and he had to stop and he said please can we change the subject two thousand six is the year of that sock how is killed and Yala province by an American air attack yeah the dark how it was the original Islamic state or what it was called in Iraq the original conception that ISIS will become a subset in a sense he was he was made a bin laden reluctantly made him the head of al Qaida in Mesopotamia or or I'll cut in the land of the two rivers as they like to call the store I was told as he was of Jordanian not an Iraqi firm that he is he was short and yes and he he went to to Iraq after the invasion here actually have a training camp in Kurdistan years before but reenter the country after the invasion in two thousand three and quickly made his name we the west came to learn of him really when he beheaded Nicholas Berg but in fact people tend to forget that Colin Powell had prominently mentions are Carly in his famous speech now famous speech to the U. N. had talked about Zarqawi Powell has later admitted that he actually knew nothing about circling why stark how is critical here he's have one generation back of a monster is the two thousand six is the year that the coalition believes it has been successful and destroy our cutting off the head of the snake with star cow is death I believe they wanted to capture him but he died from his wounds that is the year that the OB of Hans children lose their mother that is a year to a significant year and most still in two thousand and six between two thousand six in two thousand fourteen it was transforming itself under the American occupation but in Americans with you in two thousand eleven so when we come back we're going to go to muscle the history of muscle I mean all sixteen centuries of it back to the Assyrian muscle much longer than that Melanie and Melanie we're going to begin with the Assyrian invasion of none of a sometime around the fourteenth century BC James or any the book is they will have to die now that's a remark by an Iraqi politician before the overwhelming forces thrown at muscle and the Islamic state muscle and the fall of the caliphate on John bachelor this.
