Fresh update on "nobel" discussed on The Christian Science Monitor Daily
"Ashley lizabeth for the monitor. Turning the sci-fi classic doom into a film has proved particularly difficult. The latest attempt shows the difficulty of creating a suitably epic canvas without losing emotional intimacy. You can find the full movie review by Peter raynor in today's issue. Now commentary from the monitor's editorial board on rewards for freedom of thought. If the North Korean regime ever collapses on its own, the Nobel Peace Prize ought to go to this group. Older people in North Korea. They are now banned from parks because they criticize the regime during their daily chats. After decades of stifling dissent, the regime can't seem to banish freedom of thought. The touch of freedom exists widely in North Korea is a testament to the power of truth and individual conscience. And to the liberty that enables each person to see others as free. Those who advocate for such freedoms are often awarded with international prizes. This year's Nobel Peace Prize, for example, went to two journalists for publishing under repressive regimes. Now, the European Parliament has given its annual sakharov prize for freedom of thought to Alexei Navalny. The country's leading pro democracy dissident, despite being poisoned twice, and then thrown in prison earlier this year, mister Navalny remains a moral center for many Russians. The European Union's award is named after a famed distant during the Cold War. Andre sucker of a Soviet nuclear scientist and human rights advocate. He wrote that freedom of thought is the only guarantee against.
Mike and Chad Prather Discuss the Effectiveness of COVID Vaccines and Ivermectin
"Know, I've been fascinated to hear people push back at my admission that I've been taking Ivermectin every week for about ten months. And when people challenge me, one guy, one pinhead pseudo intellectual call, and he said, how dare you? And I said, go to the NIH website. You can find it NIH. On the NIH website, there they actually have posted studies of the effectiveness of Iver Ivermectin. And yet, like you said, CDC, NIH, they say it. Then again, I remember I'm old enough to remember Doctor Fauci saying the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. You only needed one. That's the beauty of it. He said, you only needed one shot, one and done. Now, of course she's saying, we always knew it was a two shot regimen. A real shocker Chad prayer that millions of Americans are skeptical about the wisdom of these scientists. I have a 62nd video saved in my phone and on my files that talk about Fauci and how he has changed his tune. And it talks about the headlines from Fauci how it's 99% effective down to 40% and then finally it goes to the boosters. And you can literally see the numbers count down through the headlines. This is the kind of stuff we're up against right now in the world. And again, it to question that in any way, shape or form. Forget the fact that Ivermectin won a Nobel Prize in 2015 for its use in humans. Don't talk about any of that. They will cancel you in a

That i wouldn't be shocked if he literally like set out loud or like even even wrote an email like let's let people die community economy going herd immunity like. That's there's a party new. It's kind of like trump flirted with it well and there's a part of me that's kind of like you know what people on the left should be trying different shit like like dan. Ilic like taking out billboards with kangaroos or there are some fires one way of doing it and charging bulletin murders another way and maybe the that kangaroo billboards is like a better more sustainable preference strokes different folks. While you're saying yeah. I mean so i i you know the particularities of the case against two and i.

"Mean like these are the most difficult issues because whenever you're dealing with people have been taken prisoner hostage like you. There's so little you control you know like it's usually in a place where you don't have a governmental partner in this case it's not 'cause it's an adversary's 'cause there's not really government And you just have to explore every option and what you used at test as do who do we know who may know someone who knows these gangs like you try to find any line in To someone who might have influence over the people holding those people and to leverage that and that you know that can lead you down roads to people that are like fixers and you know not the most pleasant character real criminals i think and then the brig of stepping back the bigger. She's like that. The gangs control pawprints. There needs to be some wholesale look at like the haitian security and policing circumstance that is not the us military going down there but is is rather like how in the past. We've we've tried to help them build up police capacity and then what it builds up and then it always collapses and you know but i you just need some policy informed by haitian voices to look at. What are the policing needs here. That allow you to tip the balance because what ends up happening is like if you're a policeman in haiti and you're making x. Amount of money and then. The gangs are paying y. Amount of money like it becomes a symbol math equation cases. Yeah it is a really really really difficult situation. So we're hope for everyone's sake that yeah get it back Bent so jeff feldman someone we know well worked with Back in the days. Us envoy for the horn of africa is visiting cartoon this week is heading the sudan because the prime minister called the situation there currently the worst most dangerous crisis The country is seen for its nascent. Fragile transition to democracy axios had a good piece on the broader political situation so listeners might remember that omar bashir who's the war criminal slash former president of sudan. He was deposing a coup in two thousand nineteen. A joint military civilian counsel has been in power percents. They have been given the task of leading a transition to democracy in free elections by the end of two thousand twenty three but that transition has been complicated by more democracy by major protests Some protesters are calling for the return to military rule others. Want the transitional government to just fully hand things over to civilians right. Now there's fear that this civilian-military lions at led to beshir's ouster will kind of crumble and unravel. There was a failed coup attempt in late september so the biden administration Tony blinken specifically spoken out in support of the civilian leadership and the democratic transition. But there's this geopolitical wrestling happening where countries like egypt saudi arabia and you a closer ties with the military and there's a question of whether they're gonna throw their support towards the guy we don't like so i'm positive i oversimplified this But it sounds like an incredibly tense moment for sudan in their in their democratic transition. Yeah look i. I think this was always. It was a long transition plan. We talked about this way back when it was agreed to We've been doing this for. Yeah yeah but the the you gotta stick to the plan like i'm you know. I think they're like once you start deviating from like an agreed upon meticulously negotiated civilian-military transition leading to an election. Once you're off the course like then all bets are off and everybody's dried grabs from power you know and in terms of like what we can do beyond like diplomacy in our voice and the rest of it is the saudis emirati. Egyptians like don't wanna see democratic transition succeed. The same thing happened in egypt right where you at street. Protests removed a dictator. That had been there too long and you going to have a transition elections that time. The transition to the elections happen fast and sit and the saudis emirati is just funded coup including paying for people to protest in the streets by the way And so the idea that they would run. The exact same play in sudan was always looking in the backdrop that they might just tell the military at some point. Wait for the right moment at where you can put yourself forward as representative of bull and take back power. That's what's the name of stability or and so if biden team like that's where i'm focusing some efforts like just get in line here like don't at least don't be a spoiler Try to support the program here that results in an election by the way that you have to accept the results of and look. If we're gonna continue. I mean the amount of love showered on the emirati like I just foreign policy now. Us foreign policy twitter. Like you would think we have no closer partner in the world today than the uae. Jimmy blunt about it. Like i i know some. Because of the evacuations from afghanistan they helped with the like maybe they could not like support military takeover in the country. That doesn't want to have that. You know like we gotta be getting something like the weatherwise. Why are we constantly lauding. these the the autocratic junior partner of the saudi saudis. Like i just don't Yeah i noticed that too. Yeah there's a lot of saying a lot of a lot of fancy dinners and georgetown dinners. Here's a story that broke just before we started recording About another shitty autocrat. So this is the new york times They reported that. A brazilian congressional panel is going to recommend mass homicide charges against president.

The Regime Being Run By Pharmaceutical Companies With Daniel Horowitz
"Daniel, and one of your pieces of my memory serves me well, I'm going to dig it up. You allude to the fact that this really is a regime that is being run by pharmaceutical companies. That this is about the small group of pharmaceutical companies that are calling the shots. Is it that sinister? Is it that diabolical Daniel or is there another explanation to this? I mean, I think it's broader than that, but certainly one of the lead ships in that armada of the system when you talk about the system, the cabal, the globalists, it's the pharmaceuticals. And I love how you call it the Fauci virus. China virus is really off message. The likely knew about it and maybe they had some involvement. This ain't the Chinese. They used Wuhan because it was offshore. This was done by UNC UNC Chapel Hill berwick, Jurassic, Fauci, and all the pharmaceuticals that were in it. By the way, fun fact, UNC Chapel Hill, which is the ground zero for the getting function of research for coronaviruses. You know that they're the ones who had Remdesivir. Gilead, somehow got ahold of it. Look it up. UNC Remdesivir. How is it that the only thing that was ever approved, which as I wrote yesterday have an article on this at the blaze NIH's own website says it causes liver toxicity and renal failure and we're seeing that with Sony patients, which is why a lot of people come in moderate moderate COVID, they should get over just like they go into the hospital with pneumonia every year. COPD, we have this treatable and they die. And it is the Remdesivir. It's one vicious cycle. So they'll look at Ivermectin C we can't use that and they're like, okay, let's say we're wrong and it's a sugar pill. But it is literally safer than Tylenol, won the Nobel Prize. Every piece of literature says is well tolerated. No one's ever had a problem. Why not try
The Paradigm Shift From Science to Religion
"Stephen, you believe, and I also believe that we're at a we can call it a tipping point a paradigm shifting inflection point in western culture where over the decades, the arguments for God have become so strong that with books like yours and others, there's a shift going on. Now, you're really, you're in a world where you talk to actual scientists, do you find that scientists are out there are quietly saying yes, this seems clear, the arguments in your book return of the God hypothesis are compelling. What do you, what do you hear out there in that world? Yeah, I do think there's a shift going on. I was very pleasantly surprised that some of the endorsements that came back from for the book from scientists to whom the publisher had sent it. And very prominent people and Nobel laureate, you mentioned professor Jim tour at rice university. It was one of the top organic chemists in the world and nano and nanotechnology specialist. We've had them. Scientists recently who's come to affiliate with our work at discovery Institutes with top paleontologists in the world who sometime between 2009 and 2016 had a big rethink of the materialistic Darwinian perspective that he had long held and embrace the theory of intelligent design and eventually publicly announced that he had become a theist and indeed even a Christian and be Gunther Beckley a great German paleontologist. Where is he in Germany? He was at the Stuttgart museum of natural history, the largest Natural History Museum of curator there. It was made somewhat unwelcome after he announced that he supported intelligent design. Well, does this get to the idea though that you still have it's just fascinating to me that there are people that say, no, no, no, you can't talk about that. I just find this fascinating because look, we saw this in Galileo's day, right? Galileo says, hey, I've got some evidence here. He was a Christian. Anybody who wants to talk about that in my book, he was a profound Christian. And he says, look, look at the telescope here, the evidence, and they said then, no, no, no, we can't talk about that. That's unseemly, that's preposterous. It's offensive, it's blasphemous. The same thing is happening today. A guy like gunter Beckley tremendous credentials, tremendous credibility in that world. The moment he seems to side with you or people who are theists, suddenly the German scientific world says we don't like you anymore. And also Wikipedia. He was a great paleontologist until he announced this, and then his page was erased. But, you know, I'm really undeterred by that because this thing is catching on worldwide. And it's a bit immodest but for people who wonder, go to my web page, look at the book endorsement. It's amazing the breadth of scientific the breadth of the scientific opinions that have been lodged in favor of this idea that science is pointing

"Is an economist at Princeton University. And he's been there for a long time. There, he supervised, you guessed it, two of the 2021 Nobel Prize winners. David card and Joshua anger. My first question is, is there like a secret to your supervision? Are you doing something special? That's a very good question. Or the secret is, okay, he has no secret, but with his guidance his students did end up winning the Nobel Prize, which comes with some serious perks. I mean, the three winners are splitting over a $1 million. Plus, they also get to call themselves noble laureates, and, you know, milked that for the rest of their careers, but that's just the cake. For David card at UC Berkeley, there's also the icing. Apparently, you see Berkeley gives free parking to normal laureates. Do you know how they do? Yeah. There's the parking sign, say NL on them. I just learned this. But I also heard this and I like to verify with you, whether it's true or not. Apparently, David Carr does not drive to work. He bikes to work. So yeah, I think he does normally. So the pre parking might not actually be much of a better start doing it. The big problem is I think one of the reasons he writes a bike is because it's so damn hard to park. So what did David actually do to deserve that coveted free parking at Berkeley? The Nobel Prize committee said it gave him the award for, quote, his empirical contributions to labor economics end quote. And in making the announcement, the committee members specifically talked about his pioneering work during natural experiments. Natural experiments, one of the most prominent examples of this is a study David co authored with the late economist Alan Krueger. The paper was written in the early 1990s, and it was called minimum wages and employment a case study of the fast food industry in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Up until then, economists thought about the effects of the minimum wage in the same way they thought about a lot of other subjects, which is mostly in theoretical terms, and standard economic theory said a higher minimum wage kills jobs. David and Ellen wanted to move beyond that standard one O one theory and see how the minimum wage affects jobs in the real world. Now, inspired by the way that researchers in the medical field had credibly shown their cause and effect using randomized experiments. You know, I like randomly dividing people into two groups that are statistically identical. Researchers offer one group, the actual treatment, and the other group gets the placebo. They then compare the outcomes of both groups and there we have it. We have credible evidence about the effects of that treatment. David and Alan dreamed of being able to do this kind of research themselves. But the problem for them and all social scientists really is it's a logistical nightmare if not impossible to divide up large groups of people and conduct social experiments on them. At least for many kinds of policy questions. So when the state of New Jersey raised the minimum wage, David and Allen saw the opportunity for a natural experiment. They were going to approach it as if it were a randomized trial. Fast food restaurants in New Jersey were the treatment group and fast food restaurants just across the state border in eastern Pennsylvania where the control group. What happened was they knew that there was going to be an increase the minimum wage in New Jersey. And before the minimum wage took place, they went out in the field to collect data. So they designed a study of what the effect would be without knowing what the effect would be. Like, that's exactly the way science should operate. You shouldn't look at it exposed and then turn rationalize what you saw..

"So durian, we're talking because a little committee in Sweden made a little announcement yesterday. A little announcement, or the most hotly anticipated date on the economics calendar. Welcome to the royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. And today's press conference about the pricing economic sciences in memory of Nobel. The Nobel committee announced three winners of the prize this year. Joshua ingress Guido embeds and David card. Shortly after the announcement, you see Berkeley hosted an online talk with David card and David thanked a special someone. Or Ashton filter, who was my thesis adviser and early was really instrumental in setting up kind of a revolutionary change in the way economists do research and I've really benefited from the inspiration that he provided. So when we were thinking about who to talk to about the 2021 Nobel Prize in economics, we thought who better than the revolutionary change instigator himself all the ashen felter. So from what I understand you were the supervisor of not one but two of today's winners of the Nobel Prize. Is that true? That is true. There are great students, by the way.

"Peace Prize has been awarded to two fighters for a free press, Maria res of the Philippines, and Dmitri merita of Russia. The Norwegian Nobel committee cited their fight for freedom of expression, stressing that it is vital in promoting peace. Free, independent and fact based journalism serves to protect against abuse of power, lies and war propaganda, said Barrett Reese Anderson, chair of the committee. The fact that the Nobel committee honored two journalists, ressa the CEO of Filipino news site rapper, and mirita, the former editor of independent Russian newspaper naval gazetta seems intended to underscore the necessity of freedom of expression to functioning democracies in a year marked by increased weaponization of social media and attacks on journalists pursuing truth. According to Reporters Without Borders 2021 world press freedom index, the situation for press freedom is difficult, or very serious, and 73% of the 180 countries it evaluates, and good or satisfactory in only 27%. Earlier this year, literary and human rights organization pen America warned that repressive governments are ramping up efforts to censor, surveil, and punish dissenters under the guise of digital sovereignty. Examples include the Indian government forcing Twitter and Facebook in April to remove posts critical of its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Nigerian government banning Twitter in June after the platform removed a post from president Muhammadu Buhari, which critics say revived Civil War sentiments. In a phone interview, director of international campaigns for Reporters Without Borders, Rebecca Vincent, said she thought the committee's decision to award journalists fighting for press freedoms was strategic. The global situation for press freedom is more challenging than ever before, she said. The committee recognized what we at Reporters Without Borders believe, which is that safeguarding of free expression is a precondition for democracy and lasting peace. The Philippines ranks 138 out of 180 countries in the RSF's global index, since winning the presidency in 2016, Rodrigo Duterte has moved the country further towards authoritarianism, imposing policies of fear and repression. He immediately made known his intention to stifle free expression in an open threat to journalists. Just because you're a journalist, you are not exempted from assassination if you're a son of a bitch, he said. Freedom of expression can not help you if you have done something wrong. Four journalists were killed in 2020 and reporters critical of Duterte's bloodthirsty war on drugs have been pressured, harassed, and intimidated. At the height of the pandemic and summer 2020, the Philippine Congress refused to renew the franchise of the country's biggest TV network, ABS CBN. Facebook has become the battleground for public disinformation campaigns. In the.

Donald Trump Deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for the Abraham Accords
"Question. I wanna ask you and you can go anywhere you want. But when people talk about the abraham accords. I'm not sure. I understand the significance of that. I haven't heard much about it. Tell us what's your perspective on that. What did trump achieve anything. Well the media did a terrible job covering most important storage game. Changing set of arab-israeli peace agreements in a generation re literally have not had an arab-israeli peace accord in twenty five years We've only had two prior egypt and jordan and president trump who was told by everybody in the peace industry in washington. You'll make the middle east worse you'll never make peace. You don't know what you're doing. You're a moron. And yet he accomplished four arab israeli peace agreements plus an agreement between kozo a muslim majority but non arab country and israel. It's extraordinary what trump pulled out and eric. You know this about me. In sixteen i was a sharp critic of trump. i would've considered myself a never-trumper. But i did would always know whether never-trumper did i said. Okay i have these deep concerns about him but let's let's pray for him every day and let's see how he how how he does. When i sat with them in the oval office a scene described in this book. I told him that. I'd been a never-trumper now eric. You know the man. How often does the term never-trumper get used with mr trump in his presence particularly in the oval office because judging from the looking at his is not that often. But i said to him. Listen i didn't believe your promises. I didn't trust you. But i've been stunned by what you've accomplished and i began rattling these things off. Let's just take a few right. The abraham accord had not yet happened. But we were trending there. It was clear to me that he was going to be able to pull these things off. Four arab-israeli agreements. Okay plus destroying the isis kathy. Liberating five million christians and muslims and yazidi from the reign of terror of isis taking out the isis terror. Commander abu bacher all-body taking out the top iranian terror general qasim sulamani ripping up the iran nuclear deal of imposing a maximum pressure sanctions campaign against iran. Moving the us embassy from talbot to jerusalem recognizing israel sovereign rights over the golan heights. And i could go on. And on as i do in enemies and is i believe. Trump deserves a nobel peace prize for the abraham accords. I doubt that he's going to get it. But if you don't win a nobel peace prize for creating peace with four arab countries and israel.

Ladies and gentlemen, that is a lie. That is total bull and you get the rest of it. That's not true. Now, Lloyd Austin is not a stupid man. So if you have to, I like to make things simple folks.

Walking quickly across non newtonian fluids like cornstarch mixed with water the initial force of step on it causes the viscosity of the fluid to increase very briefly allowing you to walk over it. If you walk quickly if you standstill then you'll just sink the fact that these are called newtonian and non newtonian. Fluids should give you an idea. As to the importance of isaac newton's contribution he probably would not be awarded this prize by himself. There are many other scientific fields at noon influenced but it's hard to grant him a prize because he didn't actually do anything. In those fields for example there are laws intellectuality and magnetism which are very similar to newton's gravitational equation. They were clearly inspired by newton. But newton didn't actually do anything with electricity or magnetism likewise he was the first person to theorize artificial satellite. But it was really just an application of his gravitational theories there is however one more nobel prize that he probably would've earned the final nobel prize however isn't for science. He would be an economics. Newton didn't spend most of his life working on all the scientific discoveries i listed. He spent most of his life working on things like alchemy and trying to decipher biblical prophecies. He also had a very prestigious job for over thirty years as the head of the royal mint at the time. England and other countries had problem with coin clipping. This is where people would shave off the edges of a coin. They would keep the shavings which were made of the same precious metal and then try to pass on the slightly smaller coin. New oversaw a new coinage system in england where the coins had milled edges. These are small on the edge of coin. Many coins still have these today including the us quarter and dime the edges ensured that if anyone tried to clip the coin it would be very obvious because the milled edges would be removed and the coin would become smooth. This may not sound like a big deal right now but for the seventeenth century. It was a huge deal. It was a landmark in stopping coin.

It was a game-changer for Industries like coal mining and it killed people like it was nobody's business both intentionally and through many many Factory explosions. Nobel got richer with each Improvement on the dynamite then his brother Ludovic died a French newspaper ran an obit for Alfred having gotten their lines cross somewhere along the way they were shown the remote As more the paper proclaimed. The merchants of death is dead. Dr. Alfred Nobel who became a rich by finding ways to kill four people faster than ever before died yesterday. That's gotta sting. Nobel had no children and a sudden intense concern about his legacy. So he decided to put some of the money he'd made into the service of repairing his name with a real long-term strategy in his 1895 will drafted the year before he died Nobel instructed that most of his fortune the equivalent of two hundred and fifty million dollars today be set aside to create an award five annual prizes quote to those who during the preceding year shall have conferred the greatest benefit of mankind provided you benefit mankind by way of physics chemistry physiology or medicine literature and problematically vague more on that later long piece. Wait a sec. Say those of you with better recall than me. Where's the Nobel Prize for economics? There wasn't one. There still isn't a part from the one that they're kind of is. The bank of Sweden prize in economic Sciences in memory of Alfred Nobel was created by Sweden's Central Bank in nineteen. Sixty-eight. What about mathematics game popular Apocrypha is that Nobel lost the woman he loved to a mathematician and so did not consider mathematics to be important enough. There's no proof for that story sadly wage and while no one knows for sure the reason it could be as simple as Nobel really wasn't a math guy. I feel you there. Winners are announced in October and November the culmination of a Year's preparation more than six thousand people like Nobel laureates AKA past winners School in various fields and officials from various universities are invited to nominate candidates about a thousand of them for each prize, which usually results in between 150 and 250 nominees. It's not just names in a hat. You have to write a detailed proposal in favor of your nominee and no no matter how much you want to know how cleverly you think you can get away with it. You cannot nominate yourself. Also. You must be alive. Nobel prizes aren't awarded posthumously at least not any more than a few were in the early days, but it was decided in the 1970s that that wasn't their bag anymore, but exceptions make the rule and there is one notable exception in 20 job. 11:00 Canadian immunologist Ralph Steinman received the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine but he passed away between being nominated and the prize being announced akong assignments daughter. Her father had actually joked about getting the Nobel Prize shortly before he died. They don't give it to you if you've passed away. He said according to her I got to hold out for that. He didn't quite make it but they gave them the prize. Anyway, Steinman must have had a real sixth sense when it comes to convoluted award schemes because non-winning nominees are kept secret out for fifty years in part to prevent a sort of Susan Lucci situation. For those of you who don't recognize the name Susan Lucci is an American soap opera actress who was nominated for a long time. Emmy Award nineteen years in a row before she won. I always suspected that she got the Nam as a running gag after a while. The Nobel committee keeps the also-rans under their Collective hat. So people don't include previous nominations as an argument for the prize. If nothing else this secrecy means she could claim that you were nominated for a Nobel prize and no one can prove. Otherwise work it into your next pick up line, you know, when we can go out in public and interact with strangers off.

Once they got up and running. Oh contraire. It wouldn't make much of an episode if there weren't scandals Follies wtf's and a pallet cleanser of amazing science to top it all off. Since 1901 there have been forty nine years where Nobel prizes were not awarded. Some of them were during the world wars stands to reason but most of the skipped years were off because nobody was good enough to get one. The statutes of the Nobel Foundation say if none of the works under consideration is found to be of the importance indicated in the first paragraph the prize money shall be reserved until the following year. If even then the prize cannot be awarded the amount shall be added to the foundation's restricted funds too bad. The individual prices don't keep growing like the lottery when no one wins for a few months. Wait, there's money. Hell, yeah, there's money in addition to the amazing Prestige of the metal itself winners receive a monetary prize of 10 million Swedish.

"To win the Nobel Prize in medicine for their discoveries Mary Montague the woman who face resistance in bringing variolation to England never won a prestigious prize but she also found a way to spread the truth like Barry Marshall she found it had more to do with her sales pitch then with the evidence so in the end she did something really smart which took advantage of the ways that we use our social connections to ground our beliefs and our trust so she ended up convincing princess Caroline of Ansbach at two very late her own two small daughters into doing this kind of public way so she caught one of the most influential people in the entire country to engage in this practice so that did two things a number one it made clear you know because she did this kind of public way and her daughters were fine it gave people evidence that this is in fact a safe practice and it's a good idea they also made clear to people that if they want to conform to the norm if they want to share a practice with this really influential person then they should do the same thing and after princess Caroline did the US relations spread much more quickly especially among people who had a personal connection to either marry Montague or to the princess what what's fascinating here is that this one sentence okay is that a rational way to solve the problem it wasn't saying look there's really convincing evidence here you almost using a technique that's pretty close to propaganda it is a propaganda techniques absolutely so propaganda's tend to be very savvy about the ways that people use their social connections to ground trust and knowledge and choose their beliefs and they take advantage of those in this case it was using those that social trust for good but in many cases people use it for bad and if you look at the history of industrial propaganda in the US or if you look at the way Russia conducted propaganda before the last election people have taken advantage of these kinds of social ties and beliefs to try to convince us of whatever it is they're selling one last idea how you counter are bad information some of ice as we saw it did not succeed in persuading other doctors during his lifetime to wash their hands thoroughly as before they were treating chins but of course now that idea is is widely adopted what what does that tell us Kaelin about how science in some ways might be self correcting it might not be self correcting at the pace that we want but over time it appears that good ideas do beat out the bad ones yes we have thousands and thousands of examples in science of exactly that happening of good ideas beating out the bad ones of course now we can look back and say oh all that good idea one out and not good idea one out we can actually look at right now and know which of the ideas we believe now are correct ones are good ones so they're actually philosophers of science like Larry laden Kyle Stanford who argue for something called the pessimistic meta induction which is something like this because scientific theories in the past have always eventually been overturned we ought to think that our state theories now will probably be overturned as well but there there's actually an optimistic side.

"To see the Nobel Prize speech which is fascinating and I think really draws people and do you remember when he won the Nobel Prize yes I would have been in my early twenties I think the walls on as it should be used on the video he was in Greece all on a holiday with his wife Marty at that stage it was pretty well let's forms on it he was very difficult to reach and I think he was one of the last people to find out that he actually had one of the family with the message has had three to him that he had won the Nobel Prize as he says in the video that you just mentioned he made a concerted effort to contact family members to share that moment with him and I was actually very fortunate that way and he for my voice I happen to be there and I was the first let's take a full two there have been no one else at home my mother was she was the sister my mother not to be there so I was the first person and in my house Jackson talked to him without saying and that was all just a very very special moment for me to be to to try to get to him the excitement that we were all feeling hold on it's one that I have to be almost a still sticks with me and to this day to to say that I was in the show not not phone call with them so so yes I do yes I do remember that vividly and then there was a there was a party needs to say an art and there was a party locally here forum which I was fortunate enough to hands and we all shared or not will move in the video shows out the whole the whole environment sure do not move with him because he's truly laws he truly was sort of someone that the Irish people really really connected with that was a win win for the whole for the whole country is aware which is how the man was right yes it's just as acceptable to walk around here you feel like you know and that's where you get the tears and the motion I yeah a really good thing do you have a favorite homelessness I suppose my favorite call was actually the one that he recites at the end of the the No Way Out video would be the story that starts off with the first line when all the others were away at my house I was all hers to be paid the taters that would be my that's my favorite I think the words in there our schools are schools often offends and I'm sure we've all shared moments like out of their parents it brings you right back to that moment and then the office he talks about that it moves along from not too bad to any shares final moments with his mother on her deathbed it's just it paints pictures stuff that that I think that anybody would would really really connect with those with those words so yeah that would be my favorite lovely the end and wrapped in all of this out so as we bring it back to people listening in coming to Ireland and I keep as an Irish American exit telling people you you really owe it to yourself put it on your bucket list and this is a great father the beautiful areas you said so much is on how we treat was inspired in a six mile radius of five two you can walk around and get that feeling I think that that that he had and I think that would be special but when people come here and they leave when you hope they take away as opposed to the war first of all we want them to take away an experience and I think that's what we provide with people that truly authentic experience they have an opportunity to get a window into the trash life on to you to do that hi she was in he's portrayed as you said a Nobel Prize winning gold but won't not everyone can can relate to it gives people an insight into the importance of community to you to this to the on the on the importance of this area and we're actually developing we hope to have them ready for next year's season the three trails or people who wanted to those keys sparks for Haiti revive such as toners falls within the poem taking charge and then to forge hell hands the fixed rate tenders were working on that presently extend the reach of home please I did not hear the landscape I suppose we find is that people find a real connection to this area when they do our exhibition when the for the whole case so that's one that becomes a very personal experience it's one that I would encourage people to make the effort to come here because I know I am I understand that coming out from a slightly biased position but it's one that the reaction we've had visitors we've been visitors from all over the word of some twenty two countries at this stage in the here's the reason we've been open but won't that people really really close and it comes in very very powerful emotional experience most will not but I certainly can pray to listeners to try to make time to come to those of us here and vote on a six day perfect place to end this private clinic thank you so much shot at in Mexico one hundred drinks at a well worn bar with some shady looking characters in Vegas riding a bike from Dallas to Seattle on a bent scribbling the words dungeon

"Aspects of poets used to actually develop that work another very intesting aspect of the exhibition as in we have we have a replica of his study in Dublin where he did a lot of rating in a Sunday toll on upstairs, we have harvest poll on that show people right from the first draft to the final draft the work the poets undertake to actually get to that final draft. I think any of us. I'm certainly, unfortunately. Not a writer myself on the oppression the people of solely morning and to say that morning.

And I think really draws people in D remember when he won the Nobel prize, really young. Yes. I would have been in my early twenties. I think it was as a true you sold that you he was in Greece. All of a holiday was his wife Mari. At that stage. It was premature forms. He was very difficult to to reach. I think he was one of the last people that they actually had the family when the message. Three to him that he had won the Nobel prize as he says that he a concerted effort to contact founding members to share that moment was and I was actually very fortunate that when he folds my own mice. I happen to be there. Phone to that had been no one else at home. My mother was she was a sister. My mother not to be there. So I the first person in my taxi talk to without on that was obviously very very special for me. To be to try to to him excitement that we were all sitting at home. It's one that I have to be almost still to this day to to say that I share that phone call them. So so yes, I do. I do remember that vividly. A party to say there was a party ear forum which I was fortunate enough to attend. We all share it in the video shows that in fact, the whole. Shared not moment was because he's truly laws. Truly was someone that the Irish people really really connected. That was a woman for the whole country where which is how the man was right? Yes. It's decibel at just as successful walk around here.

"Minds and freshest is in the world of finance taking on the numbers in the hype and getting to the heart of the big issues of the day. If you're a regular listener to this program. Indeed, if you choosing in this time last week, you'll be well aware that UBS interested in addressing the big questions that shape the world to help us to them. They've been seeking out a number of Nobel laureates in the economic sciences to ask them to share insights and discuss their research this week. We're hearing from another such eminent mind fin kid land winner of the twenty four Nobel prize for his work on the time consistency of economic policy and the driving forces behind business cycles. Finn is sitting down with us on the bulletin with UBS today to talk about the hat and to discuss the regulation of monetary policy. His first nation with exploring the application of his theories in interdisciplinary fields. And we trust plenty more. Besides. Fin Kilonzo welcome to the program. I wonder in terms of if we look big questions big policy questions. It seems to me that there's not a tremendous amount of reassurance outlet currently that governments presidents all particularly invested in long-term strategic thinking I wanted you think that's fair observation, and if not what needs to be done, or what could be done to address that short termism in this political classes, I think that's correct. But I think it varies depending on what what part of the world you're talking about. So in the past couple of years quite a bit of uncertainty has been introduced by the United States. I think. Nothing much has changed in Scandinavian countries. My home country, no way, I think is fairly stable politically. Trustworthy. So and probably the same in Sweden. And then Mark it's not too surprising. From theoretical standpoint. That short termism sometimes arises, it's kind of what would predict. After discovered the principle that optimal government policies, timing consistent. It's sort of what you suspect will happen in countries. You suspect it would happen in countries with weak. But institutions it's a bit surprising may be that the United States would be the country embarking on. Issues like trade restrictions at cetera. Because that's a perfect example of short termism. Most economists agree that in the long run trade across nations is is beneficial to all nations. And so I kind of regard this short termism in in in the United States as as sort of naive. Maybe suggesting that whoever came up with it is. Either has not very trustworthy advisors or or he himself as they themselves may be if the if they hold party is in agreement that there. They haven't really thought through. They don't have the ability to think of the long run implications. I guess you've written and spoken extensively before about why given that backdrop the describe their force. It's very important to have central Bank independence, for example. And I guess if you have those kinds of governance structures that do sit without the political ecosystem largely without it that demonstrates the efficacy of that doesn't it? It shows how you can mitigate against some short termism. Is that enough though? I mean, you mentioned how we look to the US in the last couple of years. It does seem to go against so much of the received wisdom if you like about trade or about how to conduct day, stay politics. Do do you think sort of more needs to be done? Is it the job of economists like yourself to say, well, this doesn't seem very sensible? I think we readily point out what the issues are all the problems are. It's not so easy to. Come up with a long term solution. I mean the. The example of independent settle Bank. That has worked very well in the countries that can maintain that institution. It's much harder to think. Of a way, you could commit to good future fiscal policy or to goods, a long run fiscal policy and admittedly fiscal policy for for the long run as to be more important than monetary policy. So I sometimes half jokingly suggests that if some hotshot young economists can come up with a solution to the commitment problem, and now guess to Monte policy,.
