"Bloomberg daybreak Asia. 9 28, Thursday morning in Hong Kong 1228 here in Sydney. I'm Paul Allen. And I'm Brian Curtis looking at market action this morning, which is fairly muted, the hangs hang indexes down about three tenths of 1%. We have a couple markets that are attempting to turn positive. It may be just that valuations are low or that the markets don't really believe Jerome Powell's hawkish commentary. We'll get further details all throughout the next 90 minutes here on the program as we look at markets. For now, some of the top stories. Well, let's start with the fed, raising the benchmark rate by 50 basis points to a four and a quarter to four and a half percent target range. Policymakers projected rates would end next year at 5.1% according to the median forecast and fed chair Jay Powell said the fed has a ways to go before ending its tightening campaign. Here is bowel after today's fed decision. Changing our inflation goal is just something we're not thinking about. It's not something we're not going to think about. We have a 2% inflation goal and we'll use our tools to get inflation back to 2%. I think our policies and getting into a pretty good place now we're restrictive and I think we're getting close to that level of sufficient we think sufficiently restrictive pal said that the size of the next rate hike would depend on incoming data. The next fed meeting, meanwhile, February the first, Brian. We're told that China has asked some of the nation's biggest banks to help stabilize the domestic bond market. Bloomberg's Ivan Mann has more. Sources say regulators are asking lenders to buy bonds via their proprietary trading desks. The goal is to absorb the selling pressure caused by retail withdrawals from some of those same banks as wealth management products. The so called window guidance on bond purchases includes notes from Chinese local government financing bodies, such intervention has had a limited impact so far, traders say local government issue bonds have led to clients in China's onshore credit market Wednesday, an estimate shows that China's onshore bond market may face selling pressure that amounts to $72 billion. In Hong Kong, I'm Yvonne Mann, Bloomberg, daybreak Asia. Fisa clinched an agreement to sell its antiviral medication packs livid in China, it will be through a state owned company China Mexico, the hikers said the agreement is to import and distribute the medication on the Chinese mainland. The agreement is effective immediately, terms though were not disclosed and it's unclear how quickly PEX levitt will be widely available on the Chinese market. China Mexico said its agreement with Pfizer will expire on November 30th of next year. The bank of Japan is said to be considering a policy review next year as after wage growth and a slowdown in the global economy are closely examined. In the past, reviews from the BOJ have resulted in changes to policy, including the introduction of the yield curve control program. However, we also hear that a review before governor Corona ends his term in April is unlikely. Some officials are saying that there is no rush for a review as the bank already had one in March last year. The bank of Japan's policy rate has been standing pat at -0.1% since 2016. All right, it is 32 minutes past the hour. Let's get a check of global news

Hear more about the way your body works, and the newest insights changing the medical world from Ted speakers, find Ted health wherever you listen to podcasts. Hi, and welcome to COVID quickly, a scientific American podcast series. This is your fast track update on the COVID pandemic. We bring you up to speed on the science behind the most urgent questions about the virus and the disease. We demystify the research and help you understand what it really means. I'm Tanya Lewis, one of scientific American senior health editors. Josh is taking the week off. Today I'm going to talk about how the antiviral PEX lovid may protect against long COVID, and what we know about the effectiveness of the new booster shots. We've talked a lot about long COVID on this show, lingering symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, headache, difficulty breathing, et cetera but so far there haven't been many effective ways of preventing it. Vaccination provides some protection, but the only way to totally reduce the risk is avoiding COVID altogether. But there's some promising news. A recent preprint study of COVID patients with at least one risk factor for severe disease found that those who took the antiviral PEX lovin had a 26% lower chance of developing long COVID symptoms three months later, compared with the control group. There were 9000 patients in the PEX lovid group and about 47,000 in the control group. Those in the PEX lovid group had a lower risk of ten out of 12 long COVID symptoms. These include an abnormal heart rhythm, ischemic heart disease, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, fatigue, liver disease, muscle pain, diabetes, and cognitive impairment. And the protective effect was seen in people who were vaccinated, boosted or unvaccinated. But PEX lovid had another positive effect. It reduced the risk of death or hospitalization even beyond the acute phase of COVID. Patients were 48% less likely to die and 30% less likely to be hospitalized. We know from previous studies, including one by the researcher who led this study, ziad alali at the veterans affairs St. Louis healthcare system, the people who've had COVID are at an increased risk of heart problems for up to a year after getting sick. Even after a mild case. Could reduce at risk. Of course, the new study results still need to be replicated in other studies and populations. But if tax lovid is one more tool in our toolbox for fighting long COVID, that's a good thing. There's some more good news on the vaccine front. We've been waiting for data on how well the new bivalent booster shots work against omicron. While we still don't have definitive data, a number of studies have shown that the shots work better than the original vaccine against the newer variants of SARS CoV-2 that are currently circulating. Both Pfizer and Moderna recently announced that their vaccines produced substantial levels of neutralizing antibodies against the BA four and BA 5 omicron sub variants. Moderna says its vaccine provided some protection against a rapidly gaining variant called BQ 1.1, but the numbers were too small to draw a strong conclusions. We still haven't seen the actual data just press releases. And showing that the vaccines generated strong antibodies is not the same as showing that they protected against actual infection or severe disease. But it is a sign that the vaccines are supercharging our immune systems to respond to the virus. The Pfizer and Moderna results are in line with a number of preprint studies. Sous are it all at Emory university found that the bivalent boosters led to a four fold increase in neutralizing antibodies against BA 5 versus to the original vaccine, and a tenfold increase against BQ 1.1. Sure at all, found a three fold increase against BA 5, but not much of a difference against BQ 1.1. A handful of other studies found no difference between the new bivalent booster and the original vaccine. But we know the original vaccine still provides pretty good protection against severe disease and death. All of this suggests that getting the new booster shots is a good idea. Sadly, only a small fraction of Americans have gotten the updated shots. We know that the people dying of COVID now tend to be older folks, especially those who are not up to date on their vaccines. There's still time to get your booster or remind grandpa to get his ahead of the holidays. But don't delay. Now you're up to speed. Thanks for joining us. Our show is produced by Jeff del vizio into lika Bose. Come.

"To Washington D.C. now for world and national news with Nancy Lyon, saint ants. Thanks, Tim. Well, we'll be receiving another update this afternoon on President Biden's condition after he tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday. Bloomberg, Washington correspondent Anne Marie hordern with the latest. We heard from his doctor, Kevin O'Connor, what we've learned is that the president's symptoms have improved. He did have a fever last night. He was treated with Tylenol, and that does seem to have a clear to that up. Bloomberg's Anne Marie horde says the president's symptoms include a runny nose and a dry cough. He's also received the antiviral drug PEX lovi, which his doctor says has helped. Congress will be taking up another military and economic aid bill for Ukraine after the August recess we get details from Bloomberg's Amy Morrison Washington. There is overwhelming support for another aid package, lawmakers already signed off on two totaling more than $53 billion. Democratic senator Chris Coons says the next bill will provide military and economic aid while addressing global food shortages. Republican senator Lindsey Graham says he wants another bill by the end of the year to include economic and military aid, including more air defense capability, so he says Ukraine can get back to school and restart its economy. In Washington, I'm Amy Morris Bloomberg radio. Shipments of Ukrainian wheat and other grains will soon resume through Black Sea ports. That could help avert a global food crisis, officials with Russia and Ukraine signaled parallel agreements with turkey and the United Nations, but not with each other. Ukraine's grain shipments have been largely stalled as its ports have been blocked, since the Russian invasion.

"Announced this week that President Biden has tested positive for COVID-19 and a statement White House press secretary, marine John Pierre, said that mister Biden, who was vaccinated and twice boosted his experiencing very mild symptoms and is an antiviral therapy, and mister Biden himself tweeted out this week that he's doing great. The announcement coming amid an uptick in new cases and hospitalizations driven by even more infections and infectious strain, like VA 5. This morning CBS News chief medical correspondent, Doctor John lapook on how concerned he is about our nation's leader. Well, I'll tell you it would have been a lot more concerning two years ago before they were the vaccines and the antiviral medication. I have had a number of patients many patients who are similar to age and who have underlying medical problems who are fully vaccinated and fully boosted. I want to emphasize how important it needs to be boosted. And they've done very well. Actually, with or without PEX lovid or lova map, which is the monoclonal antibodies. So I mean, you're hearing this more and more, mild symptoms, people being out for a few days, and then the issue is, when can you go back and rejoin everybody? So what about for the broader population? We're talking about the president specifically, but this surge really seems to be gaining momentum. And I think this is a time to point out that people who are 65 and over in America only 70% have gotten that first booster, which is so important. So 30% of them have not had the booster, and it rises as you get even younger than over 65. Of course, the higher you are at risk. So I think this should be hopefully this is another chance for everybody to say, wait a second. Have I gotten a shot? You heard doctor chasse. If you're over 50 and you've not gotten a vaccine, I haven't got a shot in 2022. Go ahead and get one. I would add with President Biden. You know, we are cautiously optimistic, but he does have some underlying issues. He is on anticoagulation, eloquence, for chronic atrial fibrillation, to prevent a stroke, and they made the decision to stop that when he's on the pax lova because there can be in the direction with the drug that raises the level of other drugs. And I'm sure that was a risk benefit discussion that was not taken easily and they're going to be I'm sure following him very, very closely. Now the big string that everybody's monitoring now is BA 5. Talk about that and how it has been different from the other strings we've seen. Well, I think with each one of these strains, they become a little bit more infectious. Sometimes a lot more infectious than the one before, because it's the survival of the fittest. So the more infectious you are, you're going to take hold. So I think something like 80, 85% of the cases in the United States now are the BA 5. It's hard to sort of say, is it a more deadly or less deadly strain? Because we're having more and more population immunity. So you look around now and my patients and again, I'm seeing a ton of people with COVID. It's generally mild symptoms. But again, these are people who have been fully boosted, and then we have an underlying population, which is much more immune than they used to be. Partly because people are getting vaccinated partly because they got infected. So it's hard to say, compare this grain to the one before, but I can tell you that in my practice, the symptoms are a lot better. And I will add this one thing. Think about the difference between now and October of 2020 when

"So this is happening, obviously everybody sees what's happening, which is a trend toward two big football conferences. And my first question is, if it's only too conferences, are these even conferences? I mean, it's the AFC and NFC ain't it. It's more like that, than a conference, right? Yeah. And even beyond that sort of level, right? So I guess part of what's going to have to happen with this is we're going to see the whitling away of all these schools that have been honestly not earning their keep in these major conferences, right? So the big 12 after Texas at Oklahoma left, right? All basically mid major football programs. I mean, one of those schools is one of rose bowl in the last decade, but my bad. I forgot. I hear you on that. I forgot I forgot. Sorry. I hear you on that side by that. But you look at what's left, right? There's nobody left to anchor a conference. Like you think about when they started the big 12, the expectation was that conference would be anchored by Texas, Oklahoma and Nebraska, right? Like that was the guess. Really, it was Texas and Nebraska because Oklahoma had been down at that point. All of them are gone right now. The PAC 12 now no longer, they really only had one what I would call true anchor school, which was USC. Now they don't have one of those. Like you look at the pack 12 now. That's a lot of little bitty stadiums, man. That's a lot of stadiums that people don't go to and you just lost the best recruiting territory for your whole conference. Like, that's my thing when I look at the big 12. Big 12 ain't got players no more. Even if they have schools, there are no players. Right. Well, I mean, the thing that I think about with the PEX 12, there's sort of shocking to me, is that everybody is saying that about USC and UCLA, and obviously it's right. Like you do not want to lose LA that recruiting playground, that media market. It's an irreparable blow. You probably can not recover from it. But man, we really are just saying that Arizona Arizona state. I mean, Phoenix is a top ten top 11, 12 market. Nobody cares? I mean, seriously?

We'd say that person has a physical illness. We say they have diabetes or they have a heart condition they have you know we're very specific but when it came to mental illness it was just like they have a mental illness and that could be up from a mild depression..

"I think i'd do like that. Because it really sets up who the narrator is and what point of view. It's coming from and it only takes a very short amount. Five pages is really nothing. But it's really nice to see that in terms of the actual book itself. I really didn't like the setup of this one. This one was published by oneworld classics. The density of the text is crazy. It just keeps going and going. There's no real breaks it. Has these small line breaks but no space between the paragraphs which i didn't particularly like it also includes the congolese diaries these two diaries written actually by joseph conrad when he was traveling through the congo. These kind of boring. I would not really recommend these. The first one i guess is more interesting. Because the odds of getting sick of what he thinks and of seeing dead people in the side of roads and stuff still very short entries For example today fell into a muddy puddle. Beasley the fault of the man that carried me etcetera etcetera. The second one is more similar to. I guess you would could sort of think of it as the really boring version of life on the mississippi by mark twain. So these are the steamboat entries. Going into it now in that one in that book mark twain talks about all of the exciting things in how steamboat captain has to work and all of the different directions. The sounding paul's and stuff. This one is just straight up pure observations pretty boring. I read those i mean. I don't know twenty pages worth of it. And even then. I skipped the last couple because i just went this. This holden i value for me. It's just some random stuff so in summary it pex punch for such a small book. It has quite a slow pace. So don't expect anything foster quick about it. It just meander. Sort of like the steamboat. That his central part of the story and as it gets and deeper into the story the mounting tension apprehension grows into this fear. Malays of what malo is going to find. I really like that. Kurtz was such a central character. But his non-appearance really added to the charisma to the intensity. The curiosity of what's going on. What's he gonna find. I think joseph conrad is a pretty decent ride from what i've gone here and i'm probably gonna raid more so in total the heart of darkness by joseph. Conrad i'm going to give it a seven and a half out of ten pretty damn good book so we've come to the end of another book review and i really do want to thank you for joining me up until this point.

"I get the flu shot every single year. And i've been doing that for a very long time Once i had children in day care Despite are all being vaccinated we and a number of times. Some of us got the flu. I will tell you. Having had the flu and as a non-vaccinated person and having the flu as vaccinated person. It's so much more mild as a vaccinated person and so you know i'm very thankful to have vaccines to prevent The the very serious illness. That flu can influenza virus can cause But it doesn't mean that. I won't from time to time Get flu infection. That said the mr a and you know covert vaccines that. We have so far seem to perform better than the flu. Vaccines have typically so Beat let's be thankful for that Dr maria you respond to that. You know it's interesting. I was who same thing that professor ms mentioned earlier just in terms of the flu vaccine that i get the flu vaccine every year and my family does as well. And it's because we recognize How seriously ill you can get and that the vaccine does mitigate the how serious you actually how how bad you actually feel you become become sick. Another vaccine personal experience with the chicken pox. Pex the my daughter got the chicken pox vaccine and then she had a. She wants actually infected with chickenpox and became sick but she had one or two shit too little vesicles versus austin tire body being covered with chicken pox lesions and so we know that the vaccines are highly effective. Not one hundred percent effective. But when you do get sick it's often much less severe and much less serious than it is when if you haven't been vaccinated and for my daughter who has no scars from. Chickenpox is thrilled that she got the vaccine. Yeah we'll see you mentioned chickenpox. I have a family member who had both shingles vaccinations and had a slight little patches shot on his shoulder but did not end up in the hospital so very similar case. There that you're talking about. We've got a couple of different listeners. Who have questions. In the same category about doctrine rita you had mentioned the variance specifically the delta. Very which. We'll talk a lot more in about in a second but folks wanna do limited vaccine vaccination rates in some places in the country increased the possibility of variants emerging to professor. Go ahead go ahead. Yeah so certainly the more people. We leave Unprotected from vaccines more opportunities there are for for various to emerge. that said. i want to push back. Because there's this Disinformation out there. That harshly vaccinating people is worse than not vaccinating them in terms of giving rise to the variants. And we don't have any evidence that that's the case it's it's Preferable to vaccinate And to cover as many people as possible so that we don't have genetic mutations that gave rise to these marion's okay so let me just then be be more be more specific as a follow up their doctrine reader. I'll i'll turn to you. Is it possible that in places where we're seeing much lower rates of vaccination weather partial partial or full is sort of leaving that window open not just for covert but since for example delta spreads much more More quickly for future mutations of cova debt could be even worse than what we're seeing now..

"Essentially what the international olympic may is. They forced tokyo. They forced their host cities to spend billions of dollars to build infrastructure. And prepare for these games and then the ioc takes most of the revenue from them. You say forest but the host cities vie for the honor of hosting the games right but when you say that out loud it sounds like there are a bunch of chumps getting more and more unpopular to bid for the olympics. It is been the reason is very much. Intangible it's the international prestige that you get from hosting the olympics. And that's why you see. A lot of countries like china for example and russia wanting to host the games but more and more people are realizing that it is a terrible economic decision. Does the olympics. I mean you've said that. Hold cities hostage. It's this extremely one sided contract. They signed with every host city. Who wins wins the right the quote unquote right. To host. The games it gives most of the revenue. Ioc and heaps all of the risk which we're seeing come to the surface now onto the host city. The was the only one with the right to cancel these games to make any sort of changes to the plan to the host contract whereas if tokyo tried to get out of this they would be on the hook for billions of dollars in damages. They would have to cover the legally if the were to be sued by broadcasters sponsors for not delivering on on their deals yes so let me just see if i understand this correctly so the international olympic committee has all of the deci decision making authority here about whether the games take place but if they cancelled the games or the games went for whatever the only people who have the risk the the monetary exposure is the host country yes the the host country and the organizing committee have to indemnify the basically always and they have to waive all sorts of legal protections when they sign this contract which they signed way back in two thousand thirteen so yes the ifc ifc prophets and host cities barrel the risk. You know the international olympic committee has said the reason. We're doing this for the athletes. do you think that's fair to some extent. But it's it's good pr to say they're doing it for the athletes. It's obviously not good. Pr to say they're doing it for themselves. And for money and for the future of the olympic movement. The answer is that they're probably doing it for both of those things. And i think there are people at the ifc who generally do have the athletes best interests in mind but there are a lot of other cases where the irs has shown that it is ioc first athletes second. When is the time when they've kind of left. The athletes behind the the basic economic structure of the olympics where athletes don't get that much money for competing in the olympics and aren't allowed to promote their own sponsors at the olympics they have to promote ioc sponsors which the ioc gets a lot of money for there are rules that prohibit freedom of speech at the olympics that prohibit protests than peaceful demonstrations. They're all sorts of rules. Where the. I ac- assumes that the olympics are so attractive that ifc forces them to conform to what the ifc wants. I wonder if you've talked to any athletes who may be feeling this kind of internal division. I mean they're not gonna get the broadcast revenue from the olympics. But this is kind of pinnacle achievement. If you are someone who's a competitor you want to go and you want to prove yourself. Are there any stories of athletes that stand out to you who are trying to make this decision about what they do here now the vast majority of them do want to compete for all the reasons you just mentioned and it also that if you think about three years and eleven months in between olympic games if you put that too if you if you if you outright cancel these olympics and make it seven years eleven months in between olympics. That's the span of a lot of olympians entire careers. That's their window to to have this chance to accomplish. A lifelong dream. Never mind money or anything like that. People just their dreams and they put so much time and energy and there is that just that tension within within their minds of the pandemic versus their own dreams. I wonder if you think whatever happens with. This olympics is gonna trickle down to future olympics. And how like i wonder if other potential host cities are watching and wondering whether an olympics investment actually makes sense or whether they need to be thinking about their contract with a little bit differently negotiating. A little bit harder. I think that's absolutely. I think it's a great call. And that's absolutely what's going to happen and it was already getting increasingly unpopular to bid for the picks and that's why for example. Beijing is going to host the winter games in eight months fourteen years after hosting summer games in two thousand eight. The reason for is nobody else wanted to host the twenty twenty two winter olympics. It came down to beijing and a city in kazakhstan The has to some extent acknowledged this and realize that they are starting to make more concessions to host cities and just try to make hosting the olympics more viable. But it's still very one sided. And i think this whole saga is setting off alarm bells in a lot of people's minds who might potentially bid for future olympics. That you know there's a lot more downside here than we realize and maybe there's less upside than we realize as well and maybe this isn't something we should do. Henry's been asking people if they think the tokyo olympics will go on. He says most folks give ninety percent chance. The games are going to happen when i asked how many of those people think the games should happen. I think they should happen. You wanna go the olympics. I would want to go to the pex.

Poly Styrene Documentary

"Today. Polystyrene i m cliche is directed by both her daughter. Celeste bell and documentary maker pulsing charting the rise of marian elliott as she was born. She saw yellow pages ad became polystyrene and formed punk band x ray specs as we know in this foam. Celeste goes through her mother's archive and visits. The places of hutch halted. So let's listen to the trader to get a feel for it. Some people think little go should have. But i think my mother was punk rock icon. People have asked me if she was a good mom. It's hard to know what to say your rebel. Today's society paulie had our own ideas. Student full fully trends. She was a woman of color in. Dc full of white middle class. men was singing. polly was singing about. I fell in love with her. I fell in. The news actually started singing. Because right we will dive right in nora snaps point. He was a big personality but as we see her life was extremely complicated on. This is as much. Her daughter's journey as police starring life story. Was that a good way in. I think definitely I think by this point. We also board like punk defecation. This point know the way. The bbc fool punk document generation. That watches him in the in the same way. That like my dad and grandad generation. What war documentaries old thing again and again and I think it's focus the that it's kind of deified in such a like i wasn't like incredible and radical umbro which it was in some ways but also rian just reinforced the status quo in other ways. Like the thing. I think is really great why i feel like the rohbock of this narrative restarted with like the vowel between book which From a couple of years ago when she you know really gets to the kind of watson order of it in a way that is much more punk than saying like. Oh we great you know like sex pistols type branding and i thought that this documentary was like a really peaceful continuation overseas. Not done by polystyrene by her daughter. And i think it's testament polystyrene like complexity and also to her sensitivity. But then i'll say for her callousness towards adulterer as well. I think it makes were much more well rounded portray of somebody and also no. It doesn't just a pain releasing on her. You know she has her own issues but it looks at how they're exacerbated by the society around like a mixed race woman in london at that time in the punk scene. There's a bit wet don. Let says that she goes and shaves her head while she's a party jordan lydon's house and when winter comes back down they just love her releasing. That seem horrendous. In retrospect i'm sure we're just kind of par for the course in in the seventy s and the other thing i was gonna say i think is important is she wasn't postponed. She was punk like she's really part of the the formative dna not very easily gets forgotten. Like when i was a teenager Bought three for twelve pounds. Buzzcocks clash kind of burundi's wound go from and see a whatever it was but it took a lot longer. It's come across x ray specs and to hear them kind of debt day fight in the way that they deserve She had a rough up. Brixton upbringing. shoes booted at school. Punk rock was a place for outsiders is the cliche but actually you see that. It's inevitable that she is going to get drawn to something that's so creative but also that she can break whatever more that she feels that she has been put into yet absolutely I think one thing that's really striking by the way that she Shared her images. While is the like. Obviously i don't want a undress will. The sex pistols did two like bridge society but fundamentally that kind of just like a boy band put together by iron. Witten really edgy branding. And that whole thing is is about dog individualism. When really it was really nothing the saw. And i think that you know. Even the police die polystyrene style for rewards more individual. She recognized herself as a cliche. And she played with the idea of like branding and identity in a way that i find much more interesting than just like sticking a safety pin on it And i think we have to use it. Today were authenticity. It comes from a very real place whether the sex pistols Taped on summertimes travis. The problems with poly seem to stem from x ray specs residency. Cbgb's in new york when they went over us punks hauled coal. There were a lot more into drugs. And i think that london it seems to say. Was this the breaking point for the band. Is this the kind of crux in the film. I think so. I mean i mean. That's the argument fuel. Makes the About what happened to the u k Members of the dolls came over an introduced heroin to the to the uk seen quite quite a heavy way otten Concur with everything that lord said about film. I think The framing the fact that it has selected celeste stories. Her as she's dealing with navas legacy in some respects her mother had had semi other people's expectations about what she should be being Star as in and being mixed race being hauled somali in britain and she's just so in the clips that they use the archive clips which from most of them from a a great arena documentary from nineteen seventy-nine he was she's just so alive him sparking intelligence on which me a very funny and in most What she's doing. I think you know how easy it is to get coal topping to the move Nexus these achieved up by the film. I descend Points about the breakdown. the failure in a way to work out. How will she is.

There is a Surge Of Coronavirus Deaths in Mexico

"New data reveal a surge of cova deaths in mexico. The country has officially confirmed more than two million cases. An almost one hundred eighty thousand deaths from the corona virus but mortality rates. Tell an even more grim tale over the past year deaths were fifty two percent higher than in previous years. According to the financial times that puts mexico's rate of excess deaths much higher than that of countries such as america and brazil assembled woman to stay lot yet earlier this month. Mexico's president andres manuel. Lopez obrador widely known as anglo said. We are living in a stellar moment. The kovic spike is far from the country's only problem poverty. Corruption and crime are all on the rise but polls indicate that two years into amyloid term. Most mexicans are willing to give him more time. Mexico's president is incredibly popular. Sir burke is our mexico bureau chief he wanted on slide in two thousand eighteen and he still has approval ratings that most other leaders would be extremely jealous off at sixty two percent as it stands and that's all in spite of what looks like a very good handling of most things most obviously at the moment the pandemic. What do you mean by that. Mexico is a terrible record for covert hospitals are full and oxygen tanks in short supply. It's done very few tests for covid. It hasn't provided very much financial support tool for people who are suffering or being asked to stay home not to work the vaccination which is one sort of bright spot potentially insofar as mexico has lined up enough vaccines to cover its population. But it's a very very slow start. That might be picking up now. But otherwise there talks of ten years to get to seventy five percent of the population being vaccinated. I'm currently this has been a problem again from the top. So i'm low has completely downplayed the importance of the pandemic. He has refused to wear a face mask apart from wants when he flew in an airplane to go to the united states and he got covid himself the stars of this year and he reappeared and everyone thought well. Maybe he'll have changed his mind after this. But he reiterated again that he wouldn't be wearing a face mask so in the face of that pandemic response on wires his popularity still so high so he had this amazing vision for mexico in eighteen. Which is why he won with a landslide. He said. I'm going to do a fourth transformation. These big bold plan to make the country fairer and more equitable ending corruption and crime. And making sure there was economic growth where the gains were fairly distributed so that poor people go rich. The reality is slightly different from the vision so far in the two and a bit years. He's been in power. He's been undoing. The reforms of previous presidents and dismantling that system throwing out the baby with the bath water you could say. And then his new initiatives mainly they seem to fail to solve the problems that they put two and then a of third element is that he's really concentrated power in the presidency and some people say that they get things done and other people think they're more evil intentions behind that well. Let's come back to the throwing the baby out with the bathwater part. What's he'd been doing. In terms of reform he abolished prosper. Which was a very sort of lauded conditional cash transfer program for the poor he also reversed education. Reform was much more meritocratic assessment of teachers. A big one at the moment is he's trying to reverse bit by bit and opening of the energy market. That happened in two thousand thirteen so it was open to private and foreign enterprises which make electricity cheaper and greener on current. Neither congress is debating a bill which would favor cfe which is state owned electricity provider. So they're actually go first into the grid. As opposed to the cheaper electric which is often green provided by private companies. This would obviously raise prices and deti energy but it could also breach the. Us mexico canada agreement. Which is the north american free trade pact to replace after another sort of big thing has been getting rid of or proposing get rid of a lot of the autonomous agencies such as the freedom of information agency all these ones keep checks on the government and what it's doing so well he's been tearing all that down. What's he been building up. Will you say his own initiatives. Don't do what they should. He's very dedicated to fiscal discipline. That's a good thing especially in a so-called left leaning president it's also become very counter productive during the pandemic. The imf is telling mexico to spend more so far it's only spent nine point seven percents of gdp on extra efforts during the pandemic and more needs to be done and some people think this is going to need to scarring that there's going to be permanent drop in output caused by loss of jobs and businesses so the recovery is going to be much much slower in mexico than elsewhere. He's also splashed out on bizarre old-economy projects such as pouring money. Pex the world's most indebted oil company. And then he's putting eight billion dollars into a refinery at the time when no other country is building refineries and it's not clear what economic return that will be from that and you mentioned the big transformative plan was in part about ending endemic corruption and crime. How's that been going. Well either jason. That was point. Four percent dip in murders last year and he proclaimed this dip as a very significant success. But that's after a rise the before and frankly during the pandemic you'd expect it to have dropped them. In in other countries across latin america that also suffer high levels of violence that has been the case he also rejected the previous government's tactic of killing and capturing crime kingpins because led to a splintering of gangs. And you might be worth rejecting that. But there's no alternative puts in place. So i think his vision is that you alleviate poverty and crime goes down. That might happen in the long term but it does nothing to sort out the short term problem the problem of the current chapel as opposed to the ones who are still only three years old on corruption. As you could say he's set a good example so has been good political rhetoric. The stiffer penalties on bribe-taking for bureaucrats. But he's unless strengthen the institutions to carry that ford again it's more rhetoric than actual institutional change or heft. The national anticorruption prosecutors overwhelmed with cases and one government agency suggests that the number of acts of corruption actually rose by nineteen percent between two thousand seventeen and two thousand nineteen. It is as you say not a big list of happy news here. I mean when will that's ring down to the electorate. I mean how long we'll mexicans continue to support him for his failures because he really has persuaded a lot of people that he's like them and cares about the he's very popular because of who he is and his message rather than necessarily what he does. The opposition is seen as corrupt on what came before him was horrifically corrupt. And so he's seen the best of a bad bunch by a loss of people. But you know here's a classic populace and a lot of elite azam Against him they see him as a mexican version of hugo chavez. Which i think is a little bit of an exaggeration. But there's this big divides on the mix of policy failure. I'm power grabbing is is worrying.

Is Europe copying Victoria's lockdown strategy?

"Say Norman. Let's talk about a place, which is now imposing a five Columba travel limit You can't go to the body shop anymore he conquered the beauty salons jeans I'm not talking about Victoria I'm talking about I land and it looks like pices in Europe adopting some USTRALIAN stall approaches to curbing coronavirus. Yes. Because despite all the complaints about lockdown in Victorian has unnecessary M- should. Just. Let it go climbing from some sources and how in complaining not letting up quickly enough lockdown is actually all you can do when it's getting out of control I mean as a Stralia being used as an example to the world or is this just best practice? No matter where you are let's talk about Ireland for a moment, which is a country that's got a smaller population than Victoria bending how you define. It is right about five million people in the past month if at seventeen thousand cases past week seven, thousand by yesterday twelve, hundred cases in a single day. So. That's getting pretty worrying from them and they they're locked on looks remarkably similar to victorious yet they're going into heights lockdown of his six weeks well, in Victoria. That wasn't long enough. Do you think they might extend it? Well, it's hard to say and it goes on modelling the Senate got more cases and more virus circulating and as we've said. Before on Corona, Cast University of Sydney modeling showed that for every day you delay lock tone when you're out of control, it's a week at the other end, which is one reason why Victoria has gone on a bit longer they try to ring-fence thirty six suburbs. It didn't work and that delayed things by a couple of weeks and we've probably shortened it by lot. At, the end effect on that but that's engine. Now the sorted out and the hopefully, we'll get done very levels, but it depends on how much virus there is around week or so ago a senior person at the W. H. O., the World Health Organization was saying lockdowns shouldn't be the primary way that countries control Khurana, virus, and that sort of headline went out. And I think a of the new Scott got in it because we are seeing countries using lockdown and it can be effective. So where's the? Where's the nuance here? So that's certainly not what was being said last week courting the World Health, organization and we for Monday's synthetically report I interviewed Dr Dave Navarro. Who's in fact, the same health official he's professor of public. Health. Imperial College London and his Special Envoy to World Health Organization on Covid Nineteen, and he feels that he's been misrepresented his view is that sure down is not the first thing that you do. It's not your primary means of control. Your primary means of control has to be testing and contact tracing and quarantine in isolation of the people you find in that process. However he does say that you can get to a point where locked is the only thing that you can do and you should use that lockdown to improve your contact and testing regime. And in fact, if you look at Victoria, that's really although in the first wave, that's what we did as a nation back in March we got our act together in terms of contact tracing. There are still deficiencies in Victoria and they have used the last few weeks to get much better and so the contact tracing regime now in Victoria is fantastic there. quickly, the locking off mystery cases in super-quick time, and that's what you've gotta get. So then fighting the of used that time well. It's not that they're against lockdown. It's just that it has its place. and. When you when it's out of control, the way it is in Europe you've actually got to be able to do that another problem. And, I don't know what they've done in Ireland here. But the problem is the borders and it was a really interesting study the other day looking counties in the United. States and showing that cross-border flow was a very important factor in both the sustenance and the growth of SARS COV to infections. and. If you don't control your borders and you still got people coming in from outside, it's very hard to get this done and on control it. So so really European. Countries are trying to do this with one hand tied behind their bank. Britain and Ireland could control their borders because they're islands but it's harder for other nations exactly and can we just come back to smoking before about Australia and we are doing the numbers that are coming out now looking really really promising do how close are we to having zero spread here in Australia, we're almost there new south. Wales still has cases popping up Victoria might get there before New South Wales because they're still in lockdown and those extra few days of Lockton make make all the difference I think New South Wales it's going to be really hard but they're. You know they're getting on top of it too. I think we're going to be very, very tiny sprayed, and maybe in Victoria, they'll get done to zero spread. And that will make it much easier to open things

The Weaponization of China's Rare Earths

The Weaponization of China's Rare Earths

"Threatened to restrict exports of rare earths this group of seventeen obscure minerals on which the military and tech industries depend overwhelmingly produced in China. Katie Martin discusses, how the world came to be so dependent on one country for such an essential part of the industrial supply chain with Lucy Hornby and Henry Saunderson. So Henry, first of all, what exactly are these rare earths Serara, sir group of seventeen brother obscure minerals with funny names? They're not actually technically geologically rare, but China's over mass dominant position in the world's production of them, but they are critical than integral part of modern life. And they used in everything from our mobile phones, to satellite surveillance in the oil industry, even emergency rooms, and in scanners so life as we know it couldn't really continue without them. And they all suddenly thrust into the spotlight, right? I mean how have the markets reacted to China's threat? Markets have rather very quickly and both the prices for some railroads have shot up. But also share prices for rare earth companies listed in China have gone up a lot and also some companies outside China, for instance, this two listed in London show pices for those companies have gone up a lot. So the market is reacting, very quickly and hope for the rare earth, producers will see the benefits of higher prices, I guess, majorly so Henry mean give us some examples, you know, I'm wondering around with my mobile phone has back got this stuff in it. You walk through the ways that touch daily lines. Yes. So you're apple iphone does have lots of rare earths, and when it vibrates that's actually a little motor that contains rare earths, and there's rarest in the speaker in the camera and your apple has paid a lot attention to this. And I was looking at the report the other day and they said recycled supply Aurora's is not. Widely available so rare us the critical to Lord technology. But really, what people are focused on is rare earth, magnets. And that's because the growth area because electric cars uses powerful magnets in electric Motors. And also, they used them wind turbines. If you look at industries growing quickly, that's where people paying a lot of focus and also because China has not only dominant share producing rare us. But also producing these magnets over ninety percent share in these magnets. So these future industries of coming very reliant on China. Yes, an interesting point. I mean, how did China manage to make it self so dominant hair, and it's anything other countries can do to step up production in the event that supplies a withheld, there is some production outside China, and there are some emerging projects, but the problem has been capital, getting investment, and also competing with China on cost because China has the scale assuredly being low cost because of late. And environmental reasons, but also the last time a crisis over rarer throughout a lot of people go burned by new projects of investors got burn. So the question this time around is who's willing to put up the money. Can you compete with China and also will consumers pay a premium for non China supply? This is a huge question in the market, which is a consumer's willing to pay more to guarantee their supply chains on dominated by China. And so would it be possible for China to target only the US or will they send to be sweet? Other countries into the mix. China has a huge dominant share on the processing and the production of rare earth products. Most rare earths produced by China are consumed within China. So it'd be hard for China to just target rare earth exports to the US because they're in a lot of different different products, and probably harm Japan and other countries that doesn't want to harm. But China could cutoff, for instance, experts magnets, which would be hugely that. Mental to supply chains industries. So this is just raised the whole specter of China's dominance over these supply chains. How easy would it be for another supplier, just to step into the breach replace China? People are looking at sourcing production, but it's not as simple as just finding a rare earth mine digging it up. You know, it needs to be separated processed and not com. Be environmentally damaging. So you need to get environmental permits. We need to be processed separated, and then put into products. So it is quite a long supply chain, someone like apple would be quite a few steps removed from the actual mind. And I think people are just waking up now to China's dominance on this sort of intermediate section of the supply, chain, which is the processing, which can be energy intensive can use acid in the west just hasn't built these things, partly because as I said environmental permits, and things like that. But as a result, we waken off and China has huge dominance in this area. Area, and we kind of didn't see it coming. I think that's true. I think in the era of globalization in eighties nineties people in America were willing to ship all this stuff to China because they thought, well, we don't want the environmental liabilities and is more efficient for them to do it at a lower cost. And that was the whole theory of how markets work, right? But as a result in this era, where trade and other things that are weapon, these vulnerabilities, so Lee seen is thinking of this Chinese dominance, who's a strategic decision or is there a bit of luck involved? I think it was a bit of luck. Really? I mean back in the eighties China was looking to export anything they could to get hard currency. And so they had a lot of this stuff it's pretty toxic. And it's not that difficult to mind. So that's a combination that really lends itself well to all sorts of wildcat miners who don't have a lot of environmental or necessarily health protection around the people who work for them. So all of a sudden China was. Producing tons of this stuff at a lower price than anybody else. And so it swept into the markets there and pushed the few other minds of there were out of business. The other issue is that China initially was just exporting this as a raw material and you still had a lot of processing going on in Japan Korea, other Asian nations. But there was a face off starting around two thousand six and going through about two thousand ten two thousand eleven where China and Japan were at odds in during that time. China's attempts to cut raw material supplied to Japan ended up, meaning that a whole lot of the processing industry moved here to China. So it's really a case often of unintended consequences, what is it? That's provoked China into making its latest threat to restrict Expos. Is this the threat that we should take seriously was at a post, during I think there's a lot of posturing and a lot of overreacting whenever you get a situation where you have a super specific industry. Every and a lot of defense strategists weaving theories around it. So China is posturing a bit partly because they don't have necessarily as many retaliation nurtures against the US as the US does against China's. So this one then looks very, very tempting. It's very satisfying for nationalists in China to say, hey, you know, we can really hit you where it counts. But you also have Chinese nationalist and environmentalists, and patriots, who are pushing for experts to be stopped so that the environmental damage can be reduced. You know, they're very conscious of the fact that China takes it on the teeth for the sake of these consumers in the rich world, or even in rich cities in China. And so, they some of them feel that if they could only reduce the exports, they could also stop some of the really damaging mining that's going on. Meanwhile guaranteed people in the defense industries in strategic sectors in the US. Will immediately go into hyper drive over it as well. And then in between, of course, you have a lot of speculators. You know, people who wanna with the sup to get extra money from trading in these markets, because they're very small and very illiquid markets. So I think there's a bit of real threat, and there's a whole lot of posturing and hype, how is trying to use this dominance in rarest in disputes before. And you think this might be something that is an increasingly common tool this available to them. Well, I think you've seen ever since Donald Trump took office. You've seen a willingness by the US to use trade as a political and diplomatic weapon with other countries. Now, this is something that China does have a habit of doing, but I think when the US does it so overtly, it allows China to really double down as well. Is this a riskless exercise in the photo of China? What would be the risk to China to self putting this threaten to practice? Well, there's a couple of risks. I mean one. Is the law of unintended consequences, so, you know, you threaten to cut off the raw material. And then you get a lot of other people enthusiastic about starting minds elsewhere. You lose your monopoly another thing that has happened in the past is when China has made these threats or even when China has adopted policies to reduce its exports, what ends up happening is it helps catapult China up the value chain? That's positive if what you care about is China's industry and the value added of that industry. It's negative, if what you care about is trying to limit the extremely toxic mining practices, because it just increases the demand for this stuff. And of course, it's negative internationally because it leads to these very aggressive, very aggravated international disputes. And you know in a climate like this, you just really don't wanna play with that fire.
