"So he's currently the presiding justice of the second department, which is the busiest of the four appellate division departments in the state. He's from Suffolk county, the department he oversees, covers Brooklyn queens Long Island, Westchester, a couple other counties. So it's a lot of the state, a lot of the states people and a lot of the state's litigation, it's a court that everyone familiar with it acknowledges is overworked in some ways that they're ideally should be more judges handling the volume of cases. And so at least parses quickly and you could say not sufficiently. The decisions coming out of the second department, many of them are very short. Many of them don't analyze all of the facts. And sometimes even the legal arguments that the litigants are putting forward in front of the court rather. For example, one of the two cases that got the most attention in the hearing, which one of them was only 333 words long, that is a very short decision. What that means is you have some decisions that the second department. I mean, these are these are cases with really dramatic consequences on New Yorkers rights on the state of law. That animal analysis and minimal explanation. Now, some of justice will sell his defenders have pointed to the certain decisions and the fact that many of them are what are known as memorandum decisions, which are decisions written by court clerks and very often unsigned. So the names of the justice, the names of the justices who participate in the court cases will be listed, but they won't even be fully signed by them. It'll be like the opinion of the court, you're the judges who participated. People are pointing to these facts saying what can you expect from what can you ask for from a judge who's been on such a busy court for so many years? How can he write longer decisions? How can we sign more decisions? And there's some validity to that. But it's critical to note, we're talking about the chief judge of the entire state. We're talking about someone who will sit on the highest court who will shape the shape the law for the whole state for years to come. And the person who will be responsible for overseeing the bureaucratic side of the entire state court system. If that person has not been able to engage deeply with

"We can point to governor hochul's narrow reelection over a conservative Trump supporting Republican to draw some conclusions and we can look at the state Senate results. We can look at U.S. House results. There are all sorts of data points. I mean, this assembly has been in democratic hands for decades and the assembly has been passing passive passing progressive legislation for many years. So I don't have an overall agreement or disagreement. I just mean to note that when I look at the collection of elected officials we have and also it's worth noting the kinds of things that New Yorkers organize for that aren't reflected neatly in election outcomes, what I see is a state whose values are clearly on the progressive side of things and again, you can define that in different ways and it means different things, whether you're talking about criminal law, civil law, other areas of policy, but it's a state that I think is clearly calling for a legal landscape, different from into the left of what the Court of Appeals has been giving us in recent years. And you make an interesting framing of that in terms of a court that seems to err on the side of rule on the side very often of the sort of more powerful in different ways where, again, you get labor unions that are not necessarily these lefty organizations coming into oppose Melissa on certain cases. Was there anything any aspect of this discussion where you felt some sympathy for Hector LaSalle. He was clearly in that hearing sort of almost a bit miffed about the way that his record was being described and how he had been attacked and he was from what I could tell remarkably Frank about some of his broader value statements for a nominee to a very high judicial appointment. I couldn't believe some of the things that he was saying in terms of his personal values. To try to sort of set the record straight, he saw, for example, and we can't get into the details of a lot of these cases, feel free to throw out examples that you'd like, but he saw certain rulings is just very sort of cut and dry factual procedural decisions that were not reflective of his values.

"In part, as a bulwark against the conservative U.S. Supreme Court and in part to take a different approach than the Court of Appeals has been taking under its recent leadership and majority block. Peter F Martin will join me in a minute. Hoku selected Hector LaSalle from a list of 7 options provided by the commission on judicial nomination after it underwent its mandated process. The governor's selection must be approved by the state Senate in order to be seated. The full rationale for hulk's choice of LaSalle has not been explained, but she's appeared to focus on LaSalle's experience and qualifications as well as addressing criticism about the lack of Latino representation at the highest levels of state government and state democratic politics, LaSalle would be the first Latino chief judge of New York. But hulk's pick was opposed as to conservative by many progressive and some moderate legislators several labor unions reproductive rights advocates and others. And that opposition to LaSalle had in many cases been made clear to the governor before she chose him from the list of 7 presented to her. Hulk had tried to pitch LaSalle publicly, but may have made her case too late, and she also appears to have both disregarded many warnings to not nominate him or others deemed too conservative from the list. And not done the political work to try to shore up support for him ahead of the announcement or even very soon thereafter, and that includes relationships with labor unions like the AFL CIO, which quickly criticized the nomination after hulk made it on December 22nd related to some of the rulings that LaSalle had been part of. Again, this is not as simple as a progressive versus moderator progressive versus conservative political battle. In some ways, it surely is, but not entirely. LaSalle made his own case again perhaps after his fate had already been decided by the Senate Judiciary Committee in an hours long hearing on Wednesday, January 18th. He and his defenders in the Senate pushed back pretty hard on the idea that he's conservative, he attested to his pro choice viewpoint, among other statements of values that he presented, and he debated some of his most controversial rulings with skeptical state senators. But he was unable to win over enough of the Democrats on the committee. Now, there are questions about hulk's choice and how she tried to win enough support for him, but there are also questions about and criticism of that list from the commission on judicial nomination and whether it had purposefully excluded certain names because of political and judicial rivalries among other reasons. Perhaps the most glaring emission was judge Jenny Rivera, the longest tenure justice on the Court of Appeals who was passed over for both acting chief judge and on the list of nominees sent to hochul. Perhaps indicative of her many dissents from the majority block led by the now former chief judge Janet D fjord. There's a lot more background here, but I'll leave it there for now and we'll get into the details of much of what's happened and what happens next with my guest Peter F Martin in just a moment. First, very briefly, if you missed any recent episodes of the show, you can find them all at max politics wherever you get podcasts or at the Gotham gazette website, they include a conversation from late last week with state senator Jessica Ramos, who's on the judiciary committee of the state Senate and voted against advancing Los to the full Senate. She's a progressive Democrat, Latina, from queens, who chairs the Senate labor committee. We got into her rationale for voting against advancing LaSalle and larger issues around the nomination in a much more.

participants are saying progress has been made The agreement seems to be a road map moving forward but some say there needs to be a lot more action UK prime minister Boris Johnson says an opportunity has definitely been born So now is the time for everyone to come together and show the determination needed to power on through the blockages To look at the science with dispassionate eyes and think about how we can compromise Johnson says a long road ahead and U.S. climates are John Kerry saying that includes a U.S. and China who of course have differences On climate cooperation is the only way to get this job done Yeah China and the U.S. have signed a joint declaration to work together although China signal it's not joining the global pledge on methane Now one of the most contentious clauses in the draft agreement is a commitment to accelerate the phase out of coal and subsidies for fossil fuels Already India says no way it's going to sign on to that The G Biden virtual summit has now been tentatively set for Monday and Bloomberg's Peter Martin on sound on Bloomberg radio says it looks very much as if it's going to go on You know White House officials seem to be pretty confident that they can pull it off But we'll have to see there's going on at the moment there's been a major meeting of China's leadership So Monday Monday and president Xi today is a warning apac leaders not to relapse to Cold War tensions U.S. president Joe Biden at the port of Baltimore pumping the passage of the infrastructure Bill today says the U.S. now can get back into competition with China through infrastructure and union jobs Not $12 an hour not $15 an hour 45 bucks an hour and up with good benefits So you can raise a family on and build a middle class out And Bloomberg's Anne Marie horndon said she was at the poorest She says the rest is now questionable The rest of his package And I wonder if this is going to start to slow down what is going on in D.C. but of course we'll see what happens next week The president is going to be signing the hard infrastructure Bill into law on Monday And Anne Marie says that this could actually make the rest much harder Well it looks like they're SpaceX now Four minutes exactly into the flight and everything seems to be going just fine In San Francisco I'm at Baxter This is Bloomberg I think the other thing that's complicating the second infrastructure Bill Ed would be the rising rate of inflation We've been talking about I think Joe Manchin was weighing in on that fact today right Yeah yeah They're talking about whether inflation is just transitory Whether it's going to be short lived whether it's going to be long and whether it's past or not is going to actually your right really deal into inflation and the whole argument about where the economy is going Absolutely right Let's pick up that point with our guest for the half hour Ben zimra Frank Benz Zimmer I'm sorry is here He is ahead of Asia equity strategy at socgen Frank thanks for being with us Let's pick up on the point that we were just kind of going back and forth with that on which is the rate of inflation now in the U.S. if you look at the cost of living a gain in the CPI year over year 6.2% the fastest rate that we have seen since about 1990 Yesterday factory gate inflation for China hotter than forecast today's number on PPI for Japan also above estimates I mean are you worried now that we've gathered so much momentum on the inflation front it's going to be hard to get it under control Yes So we are seeing the initiation number around the specialty in the U.S. which has been on the higher end of the expectation for quite some time and we can expect it to see this number and to remain to remain very high And this is one of the top risks that we are seeing at the moment So now having said that the biggest question is how transitory this inflation is and especially in the U.S. and for what I am concerned for Asia what's going to be the policy response from the Central Bank standard whether we are going to see some normalization of interest rate or some of something else Well it depends on the equity market Depends on which Central Bank you're talking to Obviously but do you expect this to be the peak in U.S. inflation Or are we going to go higher before we start training lower Well in our economic forecast we are seeing we are not yet seeing the peak hour you are going to see some basic and a lot of it's going to depend of the energy price What has been interesting as well in this inflationary report is to see the core inflation which was especially high and so at the month and months whether that is 0.6 with some spreading of the headline which was roughly in line to the core which was about the expectation So this spread to the core is also something that we that need to be quite that we really need to monitor Frank in addition to the inflation data today we had the trade data for South Korea in particular And I'm looking at the export number for the month of November actually the first.

around the globe through covax in Japan has placed a $1.2 billion order for Merck's COVID pill contingent on the clearance by domestic regulators In San Francisco I'm Ed Baxter back to you Douglas All right Denny thank you Let's get to Marvin low He is our guest for the half hour Marvin is the senior global macro strategist at state street on the line from Boston Thanks for being with us Marvin Big day I guess if you're a macro person and you're looking at this hot reading on U.S. retail inflation did you talk to the guys at the firm today about maybe changing some of the bets on the timing for the net next fed rate increase today You know what I don't think so I don't think that we got that much more information out of this Yes it certainly was above expectations But it was driven by a lot of the a lot of the same things that we had been talking about for a while Whether it's higher rents higher food and or higher gas prices that's a tax It affects consumer spending going forward And then the other price increases are very much still related to a lot of the COVID supply chain So the fed is still going to wait And they're probably going to wait until the middle of next year to decide what it needs to do And if those prices are hot still and doesn't look like they're about to cool and the jobs market continues to improve I think that they will that they will go a little bit earlier than we expect at this point But the market is pretty much fully pricing in June hike right when the tapering is supposed to end So we're not concerned what we could see what happened in 2013 particularly when you look at the big gap between break evens in real yields Yes You know what it's certainly the whole thinking about how long this is going to take has been turned upside down and it almost gets turned upside down month to month as we kind of learn just how severe some of these shortages are But that difference if we're looking at break-even between ten year break-even the 5 year break evens are the most inverted that we've seen So the market is still saying that it does believe that there's a transitory aspect to this It's important to define transitory versus structural structural is just this constant increase year after year after year versus transitory where prices are higher no doubt but are they going to increase at these levels year after year after year And the market in us still believes that that's not going to happen after we kind of get through a lot of these COVID back Backups Take a step back though Look at the print that we had coming out of China this week on producer prices And now I'm looking at data for Japan producer prices up 8% in October year over year So this is a global phenomenon It is It is and that's why and that's why we get as much volatility in these rates as we've gotten over the last couple of weeks because each one of those stories is taking on a life of their own Demand becomes important as part of this discussion once we get through these supply chains certainly the zero tolerance aspect with a lot of Asian countries has made pricing a far more challenging environment for exporters Commodity prices are still being affected by COVID And we've been waiting for COVID to really wane in terms of impacting these supply chains for much longer than anyone thought But again it's that.

"A true diplomat is someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you look forward to the trip. This doesn't seem to be the modus operandi. Die of chinese diplomat's is that the case. Well i think it's important to to recognize that. Chinese diplomats behavior historically speaking has been incredibly buried so the title of the book of closest china's civilian-army in this alludes to this idea that when china i put together a domestic coal in nineteen forty nine china's fest. For minister joanne. Lie wanted it to be muggles on the people's liberation on me china's military because it would be loyal to the party state it would show incredible discipline and also when challenge. Chinese diplomat's would demonstrate fighting spirit. And you know kind of founding ethos has played out in very different ways over time you know sometimes like in the mid nineteen fifties in the nineties. In the aftermath of the tiananmen massacre chinese diplomats were incredibly charming and effective and able to engage an interlocutors. Despite all of the structures that china's political system places on them they were able to be really really very effective and other times. Typically when china's political system has focused on one top leader like maza don will xi jinping that her. Been internal purges in a great deal of focus of ideology. Those kinds of things. Chinese diplomat's have acted out around the world re become a lot more strident. And so i kind of see. It is this ebb and flow over time rather than any kind of steady state for chinese. Diplomat's accents does this question. Peter is. I read the book part of the sense. I got in the founding of the modern chinese diplomatic corps in nineteen forty. Nine joe in lie was the weight of history in that chinese diplomats during the imperial period. over the last century prior had been seen as being complicit in sort of giving away chinese sovereignty in the sense was that chinese diplomats labored under this sense of having not been patriotic. My misreading what you wrote. No that's exactly right. I mean imperial. China actually in the nineteenth century didn't have a centralized for ministry was dealt with all foreign governments until that was forced on them. I threw a sort of proto for ministry in the wake of the second opium will net after the boxer rebellion when a foreign powers actually fulsome to set up a formal foreign ministry..

"Right. I want to return to the diplomats themselves for a second. A lot of them had some period of education in the west in the united states in the united kingdom. And i'm curious about your experience in reading some of these diplomats memoirs and talking with them. What did they make of their time that they spent in places like the united states in the in the uk. In how does that shape their thinking perception of the us today. I'm about to really interesting question. I guess i guess the proviso the excess on it would be. This is changed massively throughout the party. History and so you know in the very early days. The experiences of joanne lie and other leaders like deng xiaoping in france and other foreign countries had quite a profound effect on them in a joe looked at the conditions of french laborers and thought to himself. You know what there is something wrong with the way that the society treats its workers and really his tent will marxism was was accelerated by the experience. Once the ponzi gain power. The experience of studying foreign countries has always been mediated by the policies desire to exert control over its members whether they're at home or abroad and so when diplomats have have gone to study in in foreign countries especially recently under xi jinping. The the buddy rule. The idea that they'll move around in pez has been enforced quite strictly so so it's quite. It's quite difficult for them to have a kind of pure experiences of living in these nations. Just to just jump in here. There's one really kind of funny anecdote about the the buddy system that you that you tell when one diplomat was was abroad and he wanted to go on a date with someone and he had to bring his buddies at my right and yet he has the bringing in a of trainy chinese diplomat's with him to make sure that he didn't say the wrong thing to this vietnamese woman who had invited him on. A date is pretty disastrous. Todd enough to go on for states a anytime let alone with you. Know eight nine people looking over your shoulder and checking that you'll messaging conforms with the wishes of the policy center. You know that. I mean that's a great example. Actually because it shows the way in which like this guy was having a very organic interaction with this vietnamese women and it was. It was suddenly so tightly controlled by the by the pontiac. Rats it became Meaningful as a source of people to people. Interaction meaningless is a source of people interaction. I would say general. Lesbian kind of this is that china has gone on so when diplomats stunted studying abroad and living abroad in the nineteen eighties in in larger and larger numbers in western countries china was looking to change it. odin economic muddle diplomats in some cases. Were really deeply impressed. By the way that western societies worked in. So you know the best example of this is is actually xi. Jinping's i father in. Law enforcement will coupla with sent to margaret thatcher's britain in the nineteen eighties in his son. Got sick and he was the son was treated at british hospital free and even given food and milken and things and co kind of looked at this thought wait. This is not the oppressive capitalist west. I've been thinking of and cut actually even began thinking about how you know what maybe markets more effectively than we've been told. Maybe revolution is not coming to great britain as we have been predicting for a long time in even began to think about democracy and and how that might work back in china but when you read more recent accounts and talk to people who've lived abroad more recently both the students on his diplomats. I would say the impression of the west tends to become much much more negative. You know people will say you know. I can't believe how how dangerous it is on the streets of the us all in some of the stuff with it took me about like social inequalities hair across europe. All problems of political systems being capable of making decisions will take decisive action. Some of that stuff is talking points right. Some of it's propaganda that they Regurgitating but i think all of us who live here will sign it. That's like the element of analysis which was which hits at the truth sometimes and so. It is quite interesting to to kind of track. Abolition of like diplomats going abroad in thinking. Hey we have something to learn from the society's to while these guys are really messing things up. And i'm i'm proud of the role at the communist party. Plays in determining china's feature. That's that's quite transition. And as i said this is a token point but it's also something that they believe in we kind of have to take seriously right right moving to do just another. Another theme of the chinese foreign ministry in utah at a number of anecdotes that china's diplomats are always look for the smallest detail like smallest potential slight. That might happen and you know a couple days ago. President biden met with with putin in some media commentators sort of joked that oh you know. We're all going to have to analyze. How that handshake looked. And you know it's just. It's just when meeting but for for some members of china's for ministry. You write that stuff really matters. Why is that yes. I mean in some ways. It's if flies in the face of of how some commutations thinking of china being this kind of would thinking strategizing long-term power and when you when you delve into memoirs of Zoll will stop to look at the way they spend. The time is often focused on these incredibly tactical a small details that have very little to do with the grand scheme of things. And i think the reason for that is that china's foreign policy apparatus chinese diplomat's this. There's no such thing as a low stakes engagement. You've been told that you need to uphold china's national pride. You need to stop the republic of china on taiwan from gaining any kind of In international opinion. Noel or advancing is.

"Over with its belton roads initiative in its promises of foreign investment. And it's it's pretty good. At using france as well you know in in the case of coercive economic diplomacy against south korea and australia is really able to to masha. The full weight of the chinese state hinds diplomatic anger. But it's not good at persuading others if you look. At international opinion polling during the course of the trump administration china's image suffered even before the outset of the corona virus and then especially after the virus had spread around the world. And it. you know it's it's it's clear. The china is not particularly good at that cool diplomatic of persuasion right in something that you touched on a little bit earlier would or the domestic politics of china and how that affects the diplomats in one recurring feature of the book is that in. Times of domestic political crackdowns china's diplomats by nature of having the most contact with the outside world are often the first people that are suspected of any subversive virtues of any subversive activities when extreme example this was during the cultural revolution in the nineteen sixties was wondering if you could talk about the the lessons that the chinese foreign ministry took away from that period. Yeah i absolutely right. I think that domestic politics is is king in in chinese diplomacy. And i think that some know something. That's quite hard for us to appreciate as outsiders looking in is that when chinese diplomat's act assertively and aggressively in sprinting conspiracy theories around the world all shouting foreign counterparts. Some of that comes from confidence but a lot of it comes from insecurity and worry about you. Know what's gonna happen to them on a personal level if things go in a bad direction. And so chinese diplomat's watched multiple rounds of political purges. The foreign ministry in the fifties sixties seventies on woods in eighteen sixties is he said in the cultural revolution. They watched diplomats beats up ambassadors. Look saleh's publicly. He ate them now. That's their own ambassadors right. That's the onum buses Is and you know. So i think the when when diplomat see that there is a period of political tension going on in china there is a move toward in cracking down on opposition one leader consolidating control over the party that pretty goods thinking about. So what if these signals meant for us in the past. And what do they mean about how we should behave in the future. And so on the xi jinping she has launched a sweeping anti-corruption campaign that has punished more than one point five million officials. He's abolished presidential term limits. He's experimenting with reeducation camps to sajid the western region of xinjiang. And he's talking about how china needs to play the central role in the world stunt hole in the east at one point. He even wrote a hand written note to the foreign ministry instructing them to display more fighting spirit. and so. if you're a chinese diplomat and you're aware how the stakes can be when you get on the wrong side of china's political system and at the same time you have a leader. Who is telling you to be confident. Assertive actup you're gonna pretty rapidly. Get in line behind that agenda that he sets out so. I really think we've seen that play out in the last few years. One really important date that you talk about in the book is nine hundred eighty nine. The tiananmen square massacre really rocked the the diplomatic corps in the late eighties early nineties. When the eastern bloc was falling class the soviet union happened. What was the reaction inside the inside the foreign ministry and in their in their embassies abroad him in you. You're right about some defections. Even that happened right after the gentleman square massacre. But i was wondering if you could sort of talk about the broader effects. Yeah so full. The student protests broke out. China was coming out of one of its periods of kind of charming the world relative openness so ever since quilty nine there have been these these two tendencies in chinese. Diplomacy one towards these kinds of assertive will fauria type tactics. On one towards china in the world and in building influencing winning friends and china was was in the middle of one of those kind of charm offensive periods it was opening up its markets. It was cooperating with the u. acts in opposition to the soviet union and it was very gradually sending signals. The it wanted maybe not to liberalize its political system but at least to reform it in ways that would make it more institutionalized and more predictable so these rule scene is very good things and chinese diplomat's kind of oftentimes had what a wom- relationship with that for an antelope cases. You know the the embassy in washington. I spoke to to form a us diplomats. Who hosts the chinese diplomat's homes and played mahjong with the man it was. It was a period of warmness period when the student protests broke out the diplomats inside the foreign ministry shed the optimism of of the students in cnn square and maybe some of them agreed with that prescriptions for the country in some of them didn't but but it was quite widely seen as in the early stages at least a positive thing in some people inside. The foreign ministry actually organized donations to send to the students in the square. So that was that was quite a lot of sympathy when the crackdown came. It had this stoltifying effects on on the foreign ministry and on embassies overseas so that older came right from the top and chinese diplomat's including than for minnesota didn't know the details of how a when we come chen. She learned from watching cnn. While on a trip to latin america and the first instinct with this kind of of prickly denial you know so that starts oftentimes the place that changed it go when they feel challenged is to is to kind of say. Nothing bad happens here. You you've read a bunch of lies on your bites against it does not necessarily because they believe it. But that's just the safest thing to say when you worry that you might get in trouble or you're not quite sure what the right course of action is. And and so that was that was repeated across the foreign ministry and as time went on you know diplomats bets with that talking points became more confident in the line. They wanted to push about whether the students were small and troublesome minority and they would dealt with accordingly. You'll lying if that there were a lot of casualties. But at the same time they started issuing again this charm offensive which was aimed at winning over international opinion making shoal that international environment was seasonable for maintaining the kind of growth. China had been enjoying in sort of the culmination of that charm offensive was the two thousand eight olympics. Is that right. Yeah exactly in two thousand eight olympics kind of an international coming out party china. This was a country that had been partly. it's making and partly because of the ideological strictures of the cold war the hitting isolated for decades and.

"Another person who is consistently rewarded with outside would be henry kissinger. Who famously helped the nixon administration in its diplomatic breakthrough with china and has met with every single chinese. Lead the since mao zedong. And you know for vacation. This provides a way for him to maintain high level access in china than ten access china into for policy advice each successive incoming administration in the us. He he he clearly has his is our intake on politics. Amd i wouldn't. I wouldn't want to attribute too much to to kind of see. Cpi methods that but secondly he's someone who china his consistently felt comfortable applying that that label to right. So i wanna. I wanna return for a second to joing lie in his personal relationship with mouth dong you paint to a really a really good job of describing in the book. How his personal relationship with mouths sort of shaped the foreign ministry as an institution. Its position within the chinese government. And i was wondering if you could describe that joe. Was this kind of swamp sophisticated ada. He spoke french german english japanese. He was kind of in many ways. Everything that moses own wasn't maui. With this tough revelation. Ray who rejected all forms of kind of softness in decades famously said the that revelation was not a dinner posse. Mao wouldn't brush his teeth. He didn't like to behave. He was quite dismissive of foreign cultures. And certainly of the need to to study them in at using any kind of Academical intellectual approach but johston off in the communist party in a in a position to actually period two miles and gradually through the mid nineteen fifties. Moustafa rose as the communist. Party's previous approach. To trying to launch a been insurrections failed as mao eclipsed joe politically their relationship changed from being one of equals or even one what joe was was superior to now to one joe became a an almost total subordinate to the chairman and hit. His role was always important. An indispensable in crucial. And i think that's why he maintained a position the very top of china's political system until his death in nineteen seventy six. Because he had the skill set and this acumen the diplomacy the mao struggle with but yet he he settled into this is kind of very subordinate role with now. Which in some ways resembles the Diplomacy plays in the in the chinese. Political system writ lodge right in in that in earlier. When joe is forming the the foreign ministry recruited really the only organiz institution. It seems like outside of the communist party structure was the chinese military in. They recruited a lot of generals to be diplomats. What were some of the effects of initially having general service diplomats. Yeah so the whole for ministry was was founded with signed did that. we'd have to do diplomacy and the communist party thinks of the outside world as eighth threatening place that might undermine it it's politically it's hard one political legitimacy at home but you know we do know how to fight wolves we do know how to launch on insurrections and to train a military four to follow the will of of the communist party in a very strict disciplined way and so that ethos that had helped to launch. The communist. party's multi decade battle against the nationalists in china. Became the ethos the motivated. The way that the foreign ministry worked and so what that meant in practice was that chinese diplomats would be unfailingly loyal to the party just like the people's liberation on me was loyal to the party. They would be a discipline to fill obeying orders whenever instructed and actually often moving around in pez to make sure that there was always someone to check up on them and also that they would display. They cold at the time. A fighting spirit whenever china's interests with challenged and so that fighting spirit which I guess we've seen recently in in these kind of wolf warrior rich displays with something that was really that from the outset in the foreign ministry so from a efficacy standpoint. What are some of the advantages and disadvantages to having such a rigid and inflexible diplomatic core. I think the big advantage is that the world is never in any doubt what china's position is on issues. That really matters to the party. So i didn't think there's a diplomat in the world who is unclear that china believes taiwan is a part of china's territory or the it will respond very abrasive if criticized over its human rights record in tobacco xinjiang. Yes that's that's one advantage just the consistency of messaging another which is related to that is the in the. Us and other western countries sometimes when on agencies disagree with each other that is on display to the whole world bright like during the trump administration. It was pretty clear that treasury secretary mnuchin had a quite different agenda for china. That was a little bit focused on economic cooperation than say pizza navarro dates and so for the chinese. That was an opportunity for china to get close to mnuchin and to try to marginalize navarro from a decision making process in china. Those kind of interagency conflicts are they exist with a much much harder to discern from the outside and so that makes it difficult full interlocutors of china to to play one elements off against another. I'd say those are the kind of important advantages which a real strength in a will At best castle around the end it seems like western countries able to get their own internal house in order but the weaknesses. I would say for the most part outweigh those the strength and the fundamental weakness. I think kind of comes down to the heart of what. Diplomacy is all about which is disability to persuade others that is in their best interests to follow a policy that you favour and china his proved i think over the decades and especially in recent years that it's it's very good at using economic inducements to win others over with its belton roads initiative in its promises of foreign investment. And it's it's pretty good. At using france.

"He also said the impact has been particularly difficult on low earners. People in that bottom quartile. So those issues have got to be addressed. We can't always look at that top line unemployment rate and say, Well, we're at 6% now, 6.3 whatever we are right now, and so we're doing a lot better than expected because you do have this enormous drop in participation and you do have a particularly difficult challenge for people or low earners. Which, of course, is nothing new, even prior to the pandemic, And that is not just an economic problem. It's a societal problem as well. So when we talk about a stimulus package to me, that is what has to be addressed. I agree small businesses, but those people in those bottom segments that has to be addressed. It's a really interesting point. Alright, let's pivot now to geopolitics. Diving into my Bloomberg terminal Great report from my colleagues Peter Martin Sulayem, Ozone and Nick Wadhams Biden and she planned first call as soon as tonight. U. S President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jingping are preparing to speak on Wednesday for the first time since the new administration in Washington took office last month, according to two people familiar with the matter. The conversation between the leaders, the world's two biggest economies will take place as tensions between them remains high. Over issues including Beijing's tightening grip on Hong Kong trade technology and the South China Sea, Among other issues. It comes as Biden visited the Pentagon. The Pentagon earlier the with today and he had directed Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to establish a task force to review the U. S National Security policy. With respect to China. George, What do you want to see? What do you What do you hope to get on the readout between the call with Biden and she tonight? I'm not optimistic. I think China's not a friendly competitors anymore. They're an adversary. And I think that there are real threat to global stability and And freedom around the world and all the the negative things China has done the last several years. Whether it's Imprisoning and, uh profiling their Muslim citizens and the South China Sea war like Effort and the cover up of the pandemic and everything else. I think the president's got his hands full, and I'm I'm sure for him. I think it's very important that we continue to do business with China. But do so in a very wary, harsh, tough way, because that's that's the only language they understand. So what? What specific policies on the business front? Because I've, um we'll continue this conversation really throughout the next couple of weeks and months, because when I talked to folks in the business community, especially who have him or conservative perspective? It's they understand they recognized that we're in a global economy. But it's that balancing act that balancing act of doing business with China that has just continued Tomo Plex.

"I'm guessing you've heard of the Kentucky Derby Abi to this race that's run usually early in May we haven't yet talked about the Kentucky Derby this year but that's about to change as we're finally starting to get into rounds of prep races that will winnow the field down to twenty for the run for the roses on May the second so to help us do that. We bring in voice. We haven't heard on this show for too long and and that's Jonathan Listener who writes for horse racing nation. Welcome back Jonathan. So before we get into a few specific horses. WHO's impressed you the most so far on the triple triple crown trail? I think Dennis moment to start the list. Dentists moment strikes to lead right at the top of the stretch at Delta. Two lanes lead our three lately for the final final furlong. Dennis this moment with five length lead scabbard with clear sailing up the second but Dennis moment kicks off the road at the Kentucky Derby in a big way. He barely moved a muscle. That we we have it. RESTRAINING NATION DOT COM user generated Kentucky Derby contender rankings and despite his trouble that experience career dentist moment has not left that number. One spot. You talking about a grade three winner. Who was going to be the favourite the Breeders Cup Juvenile L. Stumbles out of the gate? You know he could be undefeated if you look back at his debut he lost his jockey was really no fault zone so he has the two losses and between between them. He's sandwich to really really nice. Looking victories including his debut at Ellis Park they won by like nineteen and a quarter lengths. I think it was so there's a lot of potential there and he's one that I feel like every once in a while you hear about a derby prospect before they make their debut and then we kind of latch onto them I wanna say it was probably roadster roadster last year because Baffert said he could be his next justify American Farrow and obviously it didn't work out there but they'll Romans has talked up Dennis's moment since before he he ran a race. And so we're we're kind of going to the same thing here As far as a couple of other runners eight rings also out of the Breeder's cup juvenile. He's a really interesting. One didn't really run his race. You know the last time we saw him but I think the way he's going to be handled this season. You have to keep paying attention trained by Bob Baffert. He's he's GonNa run him in the rebel at Oaklawn. And then the Arkansas Derby potentially there as well and then another one that you know kind of on the fence about that you know. He's got a lot of towns. Is Max `field scratched from the Breeders Cup Juvenile. He had a little bit of an issue. There it turns out we found out a couple of weeks after that that he had had a minor surgery for a bone chip. But he's not even in serious training now. Well he's he's he's apparently galloping No works yet and so I think they'll have to do the to A. Ah kind of schedule where you hope to get race out of them and then you have a more serious race which I would expect to be something like the blue grass stakes if everything works out well and he's undeniable town. I'm and I think he's GonNa win a major race somewhere down the road. I don't know if it's going to be the Kentucky Derby and then the other one I feel like it's gotten all the conversation is independence hall at at Independence Hall now makes his move. Independence Hall is the leader getting away to lead by two prints of Pharaohs has moved up on the outside. It's Bourbon Bay Independence All L. linked and a half as they come for the quarto prints of Pharaohs on the outside Bourbon Bay. It is independence hall with the lead and now a furlong to the finish Jose Ortiz showing them the whip now goes to work on independence hall. WHO has a three likely? Just a sixteen to the finish at. It's the constitution called Independence Hall. Tailwind Jerome by four Knights won the national stakes by open links came back and won the jerome. It was a little more workmanlike. But he's going to go. Oh into the new year here as another one of the favorites and if I could talk about one more that has sort of attracted my attention a little bit. It's this ancient warrior horse. I don't know what his path is going to look like. He's Jerry Hall android or for trainee. And if you follow racing at all the last year or so. You'll know that. He's SORTA become embattled. Dan from the strike. Group's tracks out in California But I of all these horses that have won maiden races and we'll be going to the stakes. I want to watch that one closely. He's moved him over to Oakland Park. We should see him in an allowance. Race coming up at the beginning of February and then from then on he should be on the Derby trail else. That's one that that I definitely want to see more of well. You mentioned Bob Baffert. And it's tough to talk about the Kentucky Derby Trail Without Bob Baffert and he has a lot more than the one you mentioned. There's thousand words who ran a big race in the low sal futurity. I'm a Roger Federer Fan but you have to give it up for an doll who is also ambassador trainee. Who looked really really good? So I mean you know Bob Baffert certainly knows how to get horses to the Derby mean how many of these prospects aspects of pan out. I see a path for all of them. To be honest. You know and we also have mentioned authentic. It's still authentic coming to the three the eight ball. He's been in control throughout leads by a length and a half to uncaptured hero. It's all authentic as they pass the quarter pole and turned for home authentic and complete Khaliq Command turning it on. He's in front by sex with a furlong left to go. Zimba Warrior and Assault Coast as authentic is putting on a show. Here is a little green gene shifting about but long gone authentic strolls home in the sham. He'll win by about eight lakes green. It's Grafton stretch and just kept going there and another extremely impressive Horse Nidal I. I wonder about him a little bit. You know we've only seen him one time on Sunday and that six and a half for a long race he he looks like Dortmund Ortmann if you go back to two thousand fifteen big horse. That wasn't extremely fast out of the gate but once he got into stride he went straight to the pace and never really let up there. Yeah it's not not really the kind of horse you want to win the Derby but I think you could get to the Derby and then thousand words certainly has every reason to move forward his last race. I think they had probably a little bit the too much blinker on him and he ended up going head to head with that no door that ran in the Breeders Cup juvenile second. I think it's SORTA legitimize both of those horses that they ran so closely in the future. But I think thousand words is probably at least a couple of lengths better then a no door. He just probably didn't see him in the stretch until Flavian Kinda guided him out and it's like Oh with the blinker. The horse realized he had something to run against a win on. So I guess when you talk about horses that I'm looking at in the new year. Thousand Words is definitely on that shortlist list to Jonathan Listener of racing. Nation is with us here on the gate. We've talked a little bit about the Breeders Cup juvenile which was a topsy turvy race. You had three big horses that we've mentioned into all had their problems that day. We haven't talked about the horse. Who Wanted Storm the court for trainer Peter Martin and that would be a very popular win in the racing business? As you know what chance do you give storm the court to back up what he did in the juvenile. Oh probably not much not a lot of black type in the family. I'm not sure if there's any black type from Stanley I'd agree wise. And then you know he was obviously the beneficiary of other horses stumbles in that race You Know He. He goes gate to wire was not really pressed a whole lot and at the same time. I think they took the blinker. They put their blinkers on. I'm sorry and I have not a fan of lemon. That put blinkers was on a horse at that point in their career. I feel like you should be taken them off so that they can relax. Prepare to go a little bit longer. I think that race and the circumstances just all all came together for storm the court and allowed him to upset that race. It's forty five to one. Whatever he ended up that day I'm sort of in agreement? I think with everybody else that the the the better Derby Derby prospect was no door and second in that race going forward. I want to mention because these races have just happened. Enforceable label for Mark Cassie. Who is not missed? A beat after a son norm went out on his own. He had been his father's chief assistant and enforceable. Really good winning the Lecomte. But we haven't seen too many Lecompte winners. Go on to run well in the Kentucky Derby. Where do you put me as a tap it colt out of a dixie union in marriage? The breeding is good. I put him a really high on my list. As far as forces will be in the Derby but I would not put him on my list of forces that I think can win the Derby and I say that because of his running style you know if we go back to almost every year that the point system has been effect and obviously gets rid of those pure your sprinters. It's the horses that can put themselves near the front at the beginning of the race and keep that pace up and never be caught by closers that tend to win the Derby enforceable enforceable is one of those closers. It's inevitable that he's GONNA run into traffic problem you know. I almost hope he sneaks into the Derby and everybody overlooks. Because I feel like he's the kind of horse could come into the super factor. That's probably going to be a really common line of thought. Though I mean I'm thinking a few months out but the soup perfect You know in the era of a favorites winning the Derby is as remain because it's pretty high minimum of really profitable wager for people nonetheless so yeah for me. He's a super effective player. I I I think he's GonNa be okay as the distance is longer obviously is a full brother Mohammed and a half years day. There's a lot there in the pedigree just really impressive on paper and it was good to see him run as well as he did you know He. He broke his maiden at nine furlongs last summer at Saratoga and it looks like okay. Here's a real two year old and I you know he ran into you. Go into a little bit shorter and the breeder security at keeneland and Max field because two things came together and got him beat but he's definitely better horse than he showed that day and it was good to see him back it up the trump
