Fed Will Begin Reducing Bond Purchases Before Raising Interest Rates
"The chairman of the Federal Reserve Jerome Powell, today, suggesting that the Fed would follow the same playbook and develop back in 2013 and 2014 once it decides to reverse what it calls its asset purchase program, meaning tapering off those asset purchases would come quote well before any interest rate increase was part of a virtual conversation sponsored by the Economic Club of Washington. Here's some background since last summer, the Fed has been buying about $80 billion in Treasury bonds and about $40 billion In mortgage backed securities each month is a way to boost the economy and to keep the financial market conditions on an even keel. So for now, you can expect interest rates to remain low. He offered this assessment on the U. S. Economy post Cobain 19. E. I think the first thing to realize is that the structure of the economy is always changing. So the economy that we had back in college was one where low unemployment leads a high inflation and inflation state. Hi. It's very different now. And so we have to constantly update our thinking about the way the way the economy actually worked now bringing that to the present. We're coming back to a different economy. It's not going to be the same economy is the one we left and weigh. Don't know. Exact. What that will be, But we have some ideas and we're going to be finding out. I think you're beginning now. One of them is that they'll beam or, of course, they'll beam or remote working remotely. That's one thing another is we've talked to companies and been consulting firms who have pooped surveyed companies and many, many companies have spent the last year thinking about how they can use more effective technology, perhaps at the expense of of the number of people that need it. So do that. Do Their work with fewer people. And that's a lot of the service industry companies that have been traditionally big hirers of relatively low skilled low paid people. So that's a concern because we still have many millions of people from those jobs who were working in public facing service sector jobs. They don't have a lot of other skills or wealth. And so we need to be thinking about what they're going to do and how how they gonna find their way back to the lives and the working lives that they had, and it'll be different. Other ways as well way we'll be learning about that. And we always try to try not to settle on one model of the economy and think that we really understand this because it's ever

"powell" Discussed on How I Built This
"Hey everyone and welcome to how. I built this resilience edition from npr on. These episodes were hearing from entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they've been building resilience into their businesses during this very challenging time today. We're going to hear. From emily powell. She's the owner and president of powell's books powell's is based in portland oregon and it's one of the largest family owned independent booksellers in the world. Emily is the third generation owner of powell's books and she knew early on that she wanted to take over the business. Her grandfather's started in nineteen seventy. My grandfather used to drive really beat up chevy truck and i thought it was the coolest thing to go riding his pickup truck. It was the first company car had the powell's logo on the side. And i would say you know the age of three or five. When i grow up. I wanna drive the bookie truck. That was my grand aspiration to drive his pickup truck. So yeah i had a pretty good sense from an early age. When you grow up in a place it's magical powell's was big early and fast. I don't know anyone who would have turned that down. I think is an opportunity. It's pretty pretty wonderful. I also read something that you said that you don't think that powell's would have survived or thrived anywhere else except for portland. Why what do you think so. Well a couple of reasons. You know <hes>. My father was always really involved in the city community in our politics and the streetcar that runs through downtown portland. He was a port commissioner. So we talked a lot around the dinner table about what makes a city work. What makes the city and vibrant and portland's on a lot of things right since the seventies they've been very deliberate about how they plan the city and how it might look in your two thousand or in this case twenty twenty. There aren't a lot of cities that have the same makeup that allow for that kind of vibrant downtown pedestrian environment. So we say to be successful. We need nine. Am to nine pm and pedestrian traffic. Not a lot of cities have that they have portions of that but we have it in spades and then we have our weird. You know at this point. Everyone knows portland is is a little weird. It's a little different. We have a very vibrant arts and literary culture here which i think we've helped participate and contribute to grow. I think this is a city that believes it has to support itself in order to keep going and that's allowed us to survive. I think other cities may be missed that point casually so again for anyone who's been portland. You probably have gone to powell's because it's also tourist attraction because it's such a huge well known landmark in the city and i imagine that you know. Starting in march february march april when started to become clear that that this covert thing was real. We can't walk me through what what was going on at at the store. And what you you start to notice. Well it's easy to forget at this point. In the year that oregon actually had one of the first cases in the united states we were tracking the virus pretty early. I remember being in february. And maybe we want to stock up on soup or something you know thinking about it. We were watching it. We were talking about it. And our management team and friday. The thirteenth was when things started to serve grow in the portland area. We were hearing from customers. We were hearing from employees but more importantly we were thinking. Oh would this isn't going in a good direction. So on sunday of that weekend we had been talking as it management team on the phone most of the weekend and the county libraries closed and we are so large and as such a safe interior space in march in oregon that a lot of people look for places for shelter and so the folks who might have spent their afternoons in the library came to powell's which is great except that now we had a lot more people in the store would have and sunday eleven. Am we made the decision. Maybe it was even earlier. We have to close right now. This is starting to feel unsafe no matter what. We cannot participate and spreading this virus in our community. The governor hadn't moved yet to close a stay on. I think a lot of folks thought we were responding to a but no we felt really the compulsion that we need to do what we have to to protect portland and so we shut down in the middle of the day moved everyone out of the store and then unfortunately laid off most of our employees within twenty four hours. Because if people aren't buying books we don't have the ability to keep operating so you shut the store down entirely. I mean because this is totally unprecedented. You probably didn't have a plan for what to do. i mean the answer is just. Let's just shut down but it wasn't like let's shut down a move online right. I mean you didn't. We have ecommerce business. Which is successful. But in the moment we fully expected that the governor was going to require all non essential businesses to shut down and for us that meant our warehouse that operates powells dot com so we laid off <unk>. Quite of number of employees in large part. Because we expected we were going to zero. We expected we were turning all the lights off. We would not be shipping anything out. But i was in touch with her team and they said no. We want you to keep you know your internet business going. We want as many people employed as we possibly can have on health insurance during this time. And i said okay. We can do that so we pivoted as quickly as we could to bring some people back not knowing if we'd have any business to pay them but we had a pretty big spike in orders within the first couple weeks of the shutdown in march and that allowed us to kind of plow through the first month or two before we could get

"Steve said that Susan had run away to be with another man named Stephen. Coacher coacher was a thirty year old from Saint George a town in southwest Utah. They claim that he'd gone missing around the same time as Susan. Steve and Josh had Susan's diaries and claim that this wasn't the first time she lusted. After another man. In fact they said that Susan and coacher had been entangled in extramarital affair. Supposedly Susan had left to right after Josh wink camping with the boys she met up with coacher and they flew away together to Brazil coach. I was familiar with the country since he served as mission there the were shocking and completely out of character for Susan. It's nearly impossible to analyze this theory. Josh didn't offer any evidence to suggest that Susan had ever even met Stephen Coacher. In fact phone records showed that there was never any contact between the two of them coach. You're also had gone missing on December thirteenth. Two thousand nine almost a full week after Susan on top of that while he was from Utah. He'd gone missing in Henderson. Nevada local security cameras captured the last time. Coacher was seen the video showed him walking down a cul de sac in Nevada alone too many including Susan's parents. It seemed Josh was using this alleged affair to deflect attention away from himself and he'd only want to create red herrings because he was responsible for Susan's disappearance Susan's family and the local authorities long suspected that he'd murdered his wife. Even Susan herself testified to that possibility after her disappearance. The police located her safety deposit. Box the one. She told her co worker about inside was a videotape and a handwritten letter in the letter. She wrote her marital problems with Josh. And how she feared for her life if anything happened to her. She insisted that it would be Joshua's fault of you of her friends told authorities that before she vanished. Susan had given Josh an ultimatum. If they didn't fix their marriage she'd leave with the boys in the spring. Allegedly Josh couldn't deal with that possibility. Instead he killed Susan and left her body somewhere out in the Utah Desert. The evidence seemed to support this theory. A lab confirmed that the blood found on the homes wall was Susan's police. Also discovered that Josh had cashed out Susan's retirement fund and had placed a one point five million dollar life insurance policy on her where he was the sole beneficiary. However all of this still wasn't enough to charge Josh. Police didn't have a weapon. Or even any conclusive evidence that Susan was dead. The best lead they had was the blood but Susan have lived in her home for years. It wasn't unheard of for a trace amount of blood to have been splattered on the wall after a minor cut and with two small children spills on the carpet and couch were par for the course. Answers were allusive for detective. Maxwell and the West Valley Police Department with Josh. Out of the State. It was even harder to conduct an investigation. As the years passed they were unable to Locate Susan. Alive or dead since they couldn't find her. It was impossible to tie any evidence back to Josh. Coacher or anyone else but the PAO family saga was far from over in September. Two Thousand Eleven Police in Utah uncovered a suspected burial site in the middle of the desert officials in Washington rated Steve Pals home. He had a strong alibi for the night of her disappearance but they hope they'd find some kind of evidence awesomely. Something Josh had brought with him when he moved from Utah Instead. They found countless hard drives full of elicit videos and images many involve minors in some have been recorded by Steve. The police also found old videos of Steve Stocking Susan without her knowledge on September. Twenty Third Two Thousand Eleven Steve Powell was arrested on charges of child pornography and voyeurism. Nothing they found in Steve's home could be used to explain Susan's case and the search in the desert also turned up. Nothing but josh still felt the heat. The media attention in both states was back on the Powell family. Additionally Steve was no longer allowed to live with minors which meant Josh and his two sons needed to move. Josh claimed that he'd found a place to live but the court soon figured out that he was lying he was still residing with his dad. Custody was handed over to Susan's parents. Chuck and Judy. But Josh wasn't going to take the ruling lying down he went to the courts to fight to get his kids back after all. He hadn't been convicted of a crime and the government. Just take his sons away. The judge ordered Josh to go get psychological evaluations to see if he was fit to be the boy's guardian. In the meantime he was given supervised visitation rights. Josh hated that his boys weren't with him full time but he always treasured the hours they spent together. He settled into his new normal as best he could and he continued to resist the police's efforts to find Susan. By the time February. Two thousand twelve game around. She'd been gone for over two years and the case was cold. Authorities had discussed charging Josh for the crime but they couldn't find any substantial evidence to ensure conviction. They were helpless however they didn't let Josh note this publicly. He was still a person of interest and with more searches in the desert planned. They wanted Josh to sweat. He professed his innocence to anyone who asked he told them all he wanted to do was move on with his life so that he could raise his boys right. He was convinced that his sons were being corrupted into thinking he was a monster he couldn't bear to see them turned against him and to dark plan began to form well. Josh never admitted to any wrongdoing and Susan's disappearance his actions on February fifth. Two Thousand Twelve painted a grim picture of what he was capable of that morning. A social worker pulled up to Joshua's newly rented house for a supervised visit Charlie in Brayden. We're looking forward to spending time with their dad. As the car came to a stop they bounded out ahead of the social worker. She ambled up behind. The Ms Josh stood in the entrance. The two boys ran inside but before she could get there. The door slammed shut. It was locked she naught but Josh didn't open up. She immediately called nine. One one minutes later Josh's lawyer received an email with no subject line from Josh. The message was short. I'm sorry goodbye outside of his house. The social worker was frantic. She didn't know what Josh was planning on what he was capable love. No one was there to help and they wouldn't be for several minutes a moment later there was a violent blast and the house was engulfed in flames. It had blown up by the time the authorities arrived. The inferno was raging. Nothing to be done once. The fire was extinguished. Investigators surveyed the home. The bodies of Josh and his boys were found in the rubble. He'd intentionally set the fire and had attacked his two sons with a hatchet before the fumes got to them. The thin veil of presumed innocence could no longer protect him. The young family whose future had once seemed so bright came to an end. Because of Josh Powell given Josh's murderer of his children it seems almost like a foregone conclusion. That Josh had a hand in Susan's disappearance. His accounts of the night in questions seem incredibly suspect in his actions. Two years later proved that he was capable. But there's still no hard evidence to prove Josh Killed Susan or even that she's dead to this day. Susan Powell remains a missing person. No one has ever been charged with her disappearance..
