"Going up to 7 40 here in London that's 8 40 in Zürich and we'll continue now with today's newspapers, joining me in the studio is Terry stest, political journalist and author good morning tutorial. Morning. Now all of the UK front pages indeed all of the international front pages are almost all of them leading on China. And lots of great images of the protests, which is really very, very powerful to see those images as well as the videos that a lot of the websites are carrying. Yes, I mean looking at here the times The Guardian, the Financial Times, and particular both the times and the FT have slightly different pictures, but they're both of protesters, one in Shanghai holding up these blank sheets of paper that have become the symbol of censorship and the symbol of protest in China again, another picture here in the times, again, from Shanghai, a big crowd of people all in their face masks and all holding up the sheets, the sheets of paper, and The Guardian has a slightly different picture, which is protesters in Beijing where it looks rather colder. They're all wrapped up against the cold, holding candles and as well, the blank sheets of paper. But yeah, quite a lot of coverage as you would expect on this. Though The Guardian, of course, is pointing out that if you are reading the press in China, you would not obviously get the same level of coverage and that the Chinese press in particular has been sort of pointing out that it's really important to keep the COVID restrictions as they are and that perhaps they could be slightly slightly adjusted but really saying that this is taking the line the government line that this is essential in China is facing a much tougher battle against the virus. And in terms of analysis, what are the experts saying about this affecting she and his long-term future? Yeah, well, again, looking here in the times saying lockdown frustration and it's got a picture of the police confronting a protester, but they have an interesting analysis here from Carrie Brown, who's a Professor of Chinese studies at King's College in London, and saying that although these protests, this article argues, are serious because they link different social economic ethnic and regional groups around a common grievance. And so there are a lot of people protesting and there's a map here showing you all around the country how far these protests have spread. But also saying that really the reality of the situation in China is that the government may make some pragmatic changes, but we are the article says we are some way from a truly existential threat to Xi and really saying emphasizing, of course, how much control the Chinese Communist Party still has and how difficult it could be for protesters to actually do anything to get the government to acknowledge this protest. On to Italy now and this horrific landslide that's killed people and has been blamed on illegal building. Yes, and this is a really interesting story. So obviously a devastating mudslide in ischia just off the coast near near Naples. But Larry publica and other papers in Italy are really saying how angry people are about this. Because they're saying that this article in Larry Republican suggests that one building in two on the island was built without proper planning permission and that is just going on the figures that people are sort of retrospectively applied to have their building given permission. And they are saying that this kind of overbuilding on this obviously a very popular tourist island has been going on for decades and they're saying that because these buildings have been built unsafely and also they've got rid of the trees and all the kind of support for the nature around it that this has just made the situation far far worse and they're looking at what governments have done in the past to basically allow people to carry on building without this permission and sort of building extensions and building huge buildings on slopes that can't really support them. Now earlier in the show, we were talking to Scott Lucas about the power of celebrity and how that translates into politics and of course last night saw the final of I'm a celebrity get me out of here with the UK's former health minister Matt Hancock coming third. Do you think that this is the end of his political career? I think yes, it's interesting, so we're talking about celebrities going into politics. This is about politicians trying to go into the world of celebrity. And on some of the other papers, we haven't got here the sort of tabloid papers. They're taking different views. You're basically see lots of pictures of Matt Hancock, the former health secretary with a large toad, sitting on his head, and he came third in the competition so he did quite well. Whether this was because people wanted to see him eating sort of horrible pieces of animal, which was possibly it. But his political career is in huge danger, as most of the many of the papers are pointing out because he went off to Australia who's paid a large amount of money to do it. He should have been arguably at home in Westminster, doing the job that he has paid for to do for the voters and the constituents of west Suffolk. He's lost the conservative whip as a result of that. And that could mean that he's deselected. And there's so many of the papers pointing out today that the danger is because he hasn't got the conservative whip back. He will have to say whether he wants to stand again for election by this time next week pretty much. If he hasn't got the whip back as a conservative, his constituency party in west Suffolk are quite likely to say, well, you know, you're not going to be our candidate at the next election. Now, whether that's what he wants, whether he thinks he can make a TV career or a career in the public eye, some other way, which is what many of the papers are suggesting today. We don't know. But again, a lot of people who were victims of the pandemic, people who lost relatives are saying, you know, what he said on the TV he wanted to have forgiveness. But is that really the way to do it? Perhaps you should go and talk to the relatives, the victims go to the inquiry, which is going to happen in a while. And seek it that way rather than by eating, eating bugs in the jungle. Absolutely, which of course, as you say, comes with a huge paycheck. Terry, thank you very much indeed. That was Terry's the and this is the globalist.

"Hey everybody, I'm John Don Bannon. Welcome to intelligence squared and to a debate that is prompted by the end of an era that we have just witnessed and that is the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, whose personal popularity during her lifetime certainly bolstered the standing of the institution that she represented for a record 70 years, and that is the British monarchy itself. She certainly helped to hold it up. It was important to be there. I know that maybe it's a bit daft and old fashioned, but if it isn't, it's 350,000 were feeling the same way. And just want to say, thank you for all the service, really. The opinion I get is how out of touch and out of time this is. Yes, it is tradition, but I think it just highlights that this is like a fairytale. It's like a scene out of a Disney movie, but now that she is gone, one of the institution itself, what purpose does it serve for the British people and how is that purpose defined? And if it does not serve the people, which is the position that America's founding fathers took when they declared independence, how should we imagine a Britain without a monarch and a monarchy? What would that be like? What would the implications be? So long live the British monarchy? Yes or no? That's what we're debating. Our two guests are Graham Smith, who leads the group republic and Philip blond, who is director of the rest publica think tank, and though their organizations have nearly identical names, these two British writers and thinkers will be answering our question from opposite sides. Graham and Philip, thanks so much for joining us on intelligence ward. Thank

"2000 advertiser customers around the world, and when we made the acquisition, we were very mindful of that. And ensuring that our role as leading third party verification company, we maintain that trust that we have built over many years while leveraging the assets that we acquired with publica. And again, listening to customers listening to what they need and leveraging these assets for their benefit, what's interesting about the question that you ask is I never hear concerns. I never. And I think it is because of the trust that IS has built over many years. Accountability is one of our company values. And what we say we're going to do, we do, and then on the public aside, I have to say I've been making the rounds with video publishers. They're cheering wildly that I ask acquired publica publica has an incredible stellar reputation in the marketplace. They also deliver what they say they're going to deliver. And both on the buy side and the sell side, everyone's huddled, talking about, okay, what are some of those big problems that you face and how can we problem solve on your behalf? That's what the conversation is. We don't hear concerns from either side. Got it. Yeah, you're right. I mean, just having that long-standing relationship on both ends, I'm sure helps quite a bit. I'm also wondering how close those teams work together because you have. A large chunk of the funnel covered now with that buying process. Collaborative are the two sides of the business. Or the two sides of these companies in particular IAS and publica. Extremely collaborative. So as I mentioned before, we have partnered with public for 18 months. So a very healthy working relationship, the tech and product teams totally in sync really strong leadership team. Also, the other thing, you know, I grew up in technology, not ad tech tech. So worked at leading global companies like Amazon and Microsoft..

"Content, you'll leverage that data plus leverage public has deep programmatic CTV data on the publisher's side, you bring those datasets together and guess what? We can start solving some of those needs that we hear directly from our customers. So the one thing we're starting to take a look at is providing better transparency for marketers when they purchase programmatic CTV inventory. And again, it's the first inning of a long game, but we're just so excited, both about the acquisition and the team that came over from publica. And what it means for the entire CTV ecosystem. Right. And my co host Tim Peterson, he does a lot of reporting around some of the transparency tools and monitoring ads in the CTV space. He posted a video recently that kind of explains ad ID and things like automatic content recognition and things like that that further dive into monitoring what's being shown to a household and so you avoid those things like people not watching or seeing the same ad for a tire company a thousand times. The jingles get stuck in your head and then you're just in a loop. But I'm curious like how some of those tools, things like add ID or making sure that the repetitive nature of ads, how is that factored into this? Are there things that you still have to invest in from a text stack standpoint that you weren't already doing or is there a big initiative around this year to continue modifying some of those tools? Great question. So we can't disclose too much about our future road map, but we are looking at innovative ways to address the frequency issue that you had just described within CTV. So when we're ready to share more about how we're going to address that, I'm happy to come back on and share that with you..

"So thrilled about the acquisition, heads down, building out and integrated road map and we're already executing against that road back. Going back to your IPO and going public just, I guess for the listeners, when did that officially take place? Sure. So we took the company public at the end of June, June 30th and again, it was a huge milestone for IAS. We actually got that IPO done in about 7 months, which was a compressed, rapid timeline. And again, I'm just so incredibly proud of the team and the fact that we did have a successful IPO. It's a testament to the verification business and the need for third party verification companies, verifying the quality of digital media for the leading Fortune 500 marketers. So you also mentioned three acquisitions happened last year. Was the IPO at all tied to a special purpose acquisition company or anything like that. Was the goal of going public to raise money to do some of these acquisitions or did that just kind of follow in step? No, it was not part of respect, which you're referring to. And our first acquisition was actually a company called amino. And we acquired that company in early 2021. Got it, got it right before. Great. So I guess going back into the focus of CTV ad sales because I think that is like a really to your point, a very popular area right now. There's a lot of money being spent in that space. I'm curious, what the exact role is between the combined company of IAS and publica, when you are working with both advertisers, but then also the publishers that are using public for their CTV ad space. What's the kind of new company role in those relationships? Sure, happy to answer that. So one of our company.

"I during my entire tenure at is isu in the business of trust With our verification technology the really hold a lot of value in the fact that we are switzerland. We're an independent third party verification company and we will do nothing to infringe on that trust and having acquired publica there certain parts of publica Like public a brings video server an ad server unified auction. They're mutually exclusive and they're definitely parts of publicans Business line and assets that will remain separate and we'll keep that business running but again we won't do anything to change course in our critical role as an independent third party. Verification company diversifying on purpose out of beyond measurement. I mean do you see a future for. Is where it's shirts measurement company but it may also having a number of other services and products and platforms that serve different aspects of the digital advertising. Ecosystem would say that one of the biggest reasons that we did acquire. Publica is when you take a look at the c. tv landscape and opportunity ahead. I'd like to say it's first inning of a long game there's so much opportunity in t. Tv as marketers. Shift their linear tv dollars over Into see tv and having access to that amount of see tv inventory having the opportunity to improve both the public sure the user and advertisers experience in c. tv and help publishers maximize their revenue in yield. Those are the primary reasons why we ultimately acquired publica. Okay great so digging into what what safety means these days you know you. You mentioned sort of the chaos in the world and how that's increased the need for advertisers to really handle on whether ads are running It's very hard to generalize for me to ask you a question like what are advertisers prioritizing right now in terms of safety is it about fraud. Misinformation violence war climate change natural disasters epidemiological disaster. It's like every every brand is different right so And they're gonna they're gonna focus on different things when it comes to ensuring safe environments for their advertising that said what what trend lines can you highlight that that would maybe.

"Safety and brand suitability exact. We could spend an hour just talking about the events that occurred over the last eighteen months. Where marketers you know. It is now a strategic imperative to protect their brands and protect their brand reputation. Space has so evolved in such a short amount of time and our customers. They become much more. Sophisticated in terms of what their needs are Especially as digital advertising evolves in shifts further further into the social platforms and connected. Tv right great. Well there's wow so much in your response there. I would like to tease out. Many of those themes but before we get to sort of the product and how you're serving customers want to ask you about the two hundred seventy million dollars you raised with your public offering How you gonna spend that. I mean i think we got. We got part of the answer with your public acquisition this month but develop that a little bit more. Where where are you going to spend your cash great questions. So there's some growth areas that we see in the digital landscape where where investing and with everything that we do. We apply the build partner by lens with everything. And when you take a look at where the growth accelerators are it's programmatic social social platforms connected. Tv an international expansion. As you mentioned we were so excited to announce the acquisition of public just last week. Coming off of our ipo And right before. I earning 's call and public. It's a leading video advertising platform where it has a robust publisher of business deep integrations with The leaning video publishers. And when you take a look at. I ss carb. Business were deep. In the buys died advertiser and public being deep in publisher publisher side. It gives us access to just massive amounts and see tv inventory data. So were just thrilled to have the opportunity to leapfrog see tv and when we take a look at additional opportunities out there i would say it's in the video space the tv space Class video classification. That's another area where we find really exciting and i would also say in outcomes In helping marketers. Connect the dots and drive higher r. Y. and also strengthen our ability to verify high-quality media. Okay great so This deal with publica would appear to bring you much closer to the transactional side of the advertising business whereas historically is measurement company. It doesn't have any of the game in terms of the actual sale or purchase of an important prussia. Correct me if i'm wrong Do you see a conflict and becoming just sort of closer to the the business end of these deals. Great question so with that trust is paramount with our incredibly loyal customer base and so many partners and customers. They have said to.

How We've Been using Community's SMS As Another Marketing Channel

"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric. Su and I'm tall and today we're going to be talking about how we've been using community. That's community DOT COM were you've been using their SMS features as another marketing channel. So Neil, do you WANNA kick it off by explaining what community DOT COM is and I'll talk about what we've been doing. Sure. So if you listen to our podcast for awhile, you'll notice that the end of some episodes or even at the beginning of some episodes will tell you hey, Texas, and we'll give out a number of what's number. Is Three One oh, three, four, nine, three, seven, eight, five. and. I recommend that you Texas at this number. So you can get a feel of how it is but community is application that allows you to have text based communication with people thinking about how you do email messaging. You can do Massimo messaging you can personalize emails think of all those feeds looped in together in a from called community helps you personalize things and helps you automate things as well and that have your own phone number versus people texting like a short coder like that. So it makes it more personal than let's say someone doing a vote for American idol. Yep We've been using community for maybe let's call it a month or month and a half, and it's been great because we have a small group of people about two, hundred, fifty people and the list continues to get bigger. But when we're about to record, let's were recording today it's a it's a Friday what will do is we will text a group saying, Hey, what are your biggest marketing struggles right now or what are your biggest business challenges and a bunch of topics will flow through and I've actually dropped a couple of topics in here and so that actually makes our lives a lot easier. So a great for that plus people are actually seeing their topics live. As well, but the other thing we're doing to is were announcing when we're doing things because if we're trying to create a community telling people that, hey, we're going to be doing this live right now you guys can join us or let's say a meal both in La we say, Hey, you know we're going to be doing the meet up. You know it's going to be on us. There'd be doing the happy hour and everyone can join on. That's in the area that's core because it it fosters that impersonal communication. So there's a lot of different ways to use community but just think. Of It. This way your open rates when it comes to text messaging, I opened probably nine percent of texts that are sent to me. Your open rates are a lot higher and the the click rate has while I'm looking at our stats. You know when we send a link, it's like forty to fifty percent clicks rate. So the engagement is very high right now and usually when a when there's a hot new channel, this engagement rates are really high and I think more and more people are going to use it. I just don't get regulator not because I was talking to a body. It'll probably get regulators is the question of what I've already seen things circling around about regulations happening with SMS Yarka and I believe it because businesses aren't using like crazy right now but that will definitely change within a few years and then you're GonNa see all these rules and regulations of privacy concerns. It's like telemarketing. It's still hard core. Now, they still haven't managed to crack the code on that but for the time being there's a lot of different apps you can use out there community dot com one that that we use I believe they're investors are like Ashton Kutcher diddy in in in these people did tell you about the spam starting to get now on my iphone? No. There's facetime, right? Yeah. And the sad part is my email and phone number out there all over the web right 'cause like on social profile for so many years the amount of calls they get a days ridiculous on average publica. Forty fifty calls on any given day literally forty fifty calls from people I don't know and this is non like telemarketers is like people because it's in your signature everywhere right? Signature as well. That was like a million emails. Email, million people like you're GONNA get messages. But now, I'm starting to get facetime spam and you can see people just trying to face him in and like sometimes you can see like the email address has the name of based have instead of like a phone number, some really dating sites and I'm like I don't even know why just ignore it because I'm like I'm married I, have a wife I'm happy and like I know people are just trying to spam and scammy for money or whatever it may be but there's behavior here. For everyone just wants to make money. Yes. short-term thinking. But anyway guys, we think it's great for right now I think just use it in by the way the what the one thing I'll say about how we use to his were pretty non spammy. We send maybe one message awake and that's it. So we don't to send multiple messages. We just say, Hey, we're doing this and we'll say reply if you actually want the link and then we just check a bunch of. People that want to link, and we'll just send them the link and that's something that can be delegated to. If you happen to have assistance on your team, you could just do that and community has a dashboard that you can be using to. So Neil, I can give ask the Neil and he can give access to other people. So it's it's pretty cool in that respect.

Migrant boy was in distress before death in Border Patrol custody

"Border patrol as you know is in charge of maintaining the border I have a cousin by the way works for border patrol is out in Texas and god bless them in a tell all the time I thank you for your service and making sure you keep a safe because there are people that are terrible and evil that want to come in we want to keep them out I get that and I'm all about that but when border patrol purpose the lies it's very upsetting and then that is there's video that's been released by pro publica and it shows a whole different story than what border patrol told everyone regarding a teen who was apprehended and suffering from the flow and should have been taken to a medical facility but instead cap somewhere in isolation and then died here's a story channel seven is a tell a reportedly answer that footage disturbing the final moments of the sixteen year old's life caught on camera in a border patrol cell Carlos Vasquez reportedly died of the flu a week after he crossed into the U. S. in may a nurse at a Texas processing facility diagnose the teen with influenza he had a temperature of a hundred and three and was be reassessed in two hours in hospitalized it is conditions worsened border patrol officials took him to a quarantine facility where was put into a cell with concrete slabs and foil sheets in the disturbing new video released by pro publica U. C. Vasquez was from Guatemala obviously suffering he rides in pain on the concrete then crashes to the floor where he lays for several minutes before finally mustering the strength the shuffle to the toilet where he collapses I think was negligent homicide it is completely unacceptable for a sixteen year old child to die of the flu there are also serious questions about the investigation the video border patrol gave the local police investigating the case goes black for four hours after Vasquez collapses when it returns the sixteen year old cell mate who also had the flu wakes to find an unresponsive and alerts the guards border patrol officials say the agency was overwhelmed with migrants at the time many of them sick with the flu lawmakers say that's no excuse for teens death they say could have easily been prevented what's so upsetting as well as at that video shows him going into he drops to the ground you have to see this video I mean I don't mean it like that but you know I'm sorry he drops to the ground and he goes into convulsions it's clear that he's having a seizure because of the temperature it's so you know his body is on fire and I I can't imagine he's by himself like that feeling those last minutes and this kid on I mean again only sixteen was it you see him laying there police photos and factual a large pool of blood around his head yeah and you know even border patrol trying to figure out a way to get around saying that if there is a seventy two hour deadline they're supposed to do you know it assist with and they just I am just all of it is just so perplexing to me it's I get that we want to stop the bad people but is this sixteen year old really is he really that person that we're trying to keep out of the country that's so dangerous to our public safety I mean that's why I feel we're losing our way we're losing our our common sense and you know I get that they felt overwhelmed and you know figure it out with the first World act like the first world I mean this goes back to all the family separations and by the way current according to the times they're saying that this is what the eighth no one of at least six children have died since December twenty eighteen after being detained you know by border patrol agents well and there's article saying how can we really be sure considering the fact that in this story the video basically contradicts exactly what happened what the trolls said was happening so we may be seeing more deaths than we're getting reported and we we just don't know for sure and it's when we see stuff like this it makes it so vivid and that my thought immediately was for the kid that found him because that's another level of trauma that that kid has to go through that he shouldn't have been subjected to either he already had the flu is well I'm glad that it be hopefully he's getting some kind of treatment at this point but that's a lovely night yeah but that's another level truck trauma that people go to and there's I mean there's there's something to be said about the level of animosity that we as a country are creating what like we're creating an enemy I do a course we are I mean you know what we did this wasn't an enemy before this is now becoming an enemy absolutely that's a that's an excellent point because you know border patrol practices you know for example this kid asked as was in custody for more than six days in the standard except in emergency situations as for C. B. P. but you know customs border patrol is to hold migrants for no more than seventy two hours before you transfer them to immigrant immigration and customs enforcement or the office of refugee resettlement which is basically responsible for migrant children who come to the US without a parent so I mean there's a lot of you know things that I've been out put into question but remember you also have the eight year old boy from Guatemala Phillippi Alonso who died in New Mexico hospital on December twenty fourth Christmas Eve it is seven year old Guatemalan girl who died in Texas hospital on December seventh I mean it it's it's just it's horrible it's just horrible I I and I know that they're talking about well you know we're well we go through this out yeah we could do better like how do we just look at this and it's like well in American they're darker skinned an account as much that's the attitude I feel their kids that's the thing they are kids want to be to be clear just a separate the political and just the guys that are in gals that work down there right like you saying they're very overwhelmed with however many kids and adults that are being you know picked up in these facilities at some point when you're trying to do your job and you have that many people it gets to be less human and more kind of like cattle not it is not that they're doing that like that's how they think limits just like these are numbers we got a pushing through although this kid has the flu we got separated before everybody has the flu but then this is a kid that dies and it's like well somebody dropped the ball because they're just so overwhelmed so we just got we we you're right it needs to be fixed it needs to be fixed as quick as possible we got to remember remember that these people are overwhelmed and it's I don't I don't know what it into your point I absolutely agree but I think that's the problem is that you work with it but but see you're held to a higher standard because if you're not position you're right I it's just like journalists right we see death and destruction is all the time we have to make sure that we don't just you know put everybody the same category and let's say you got a look at each story you have to look at each person and say oh I hear you I see you I'm here in a moment with you yeah all I'm saying look they have a hard job I agree with you a real I mean love my cousin tells me a really hard job but the fact is in part of the criticism here is that they're saying there was an agent that checked up on him he like they've had gone and said the little you know inmate this cell mate said Hey this guy's not feeling well and he did one of these like look to the window was like that was a welfare check and that's where you know that person absolutely drop the ball and you know what he's got to sleep with himself here she who knows at night yeah I wanna and I've been working with a lot of veterans and one of the stories that I keep coming up within hearing is that they are coming to grips with a lot of the actions that they had to take during war time frame and I get the feeling a lot of these border patrol agents are gonna end up in the you know five ten years down the line having a lot of emotional issues coming to grips with just what they had to do to be able to survive doing this kind of a job from day to day it's a great point I I think that there is that there's a lot of truth to that because you know what your parents too I can imagine if one of these agents has a sixteen year old home and things wow just for a better life and just to catch the flu and die in a cell by themselves what about their

Just how beneficial are 'Opportunity Zones' to residents in low-income areas?

The Takeaway

11:44 min | 3 years ago

Just how beneficial are 'Opportunity Zones' to residents in low-income areas?

"As a government policy the idea of these opportunities owns has been around for decades low income areas get special tax incentives to encourage investment presidential candidate and senator Cory Booker has been a big proponent of opportunities owns as a way to inject capital an ailing cities like Newark New Jersey which is got millions of dollars in private investment under the policy we know that kids growing up in low income areas actually will make less money than their peers growing up in areas that have more economic investment and so when I was a mayor of one of America's poorest census tracts was mayor of Newark New Jersey one of my major goals every day was how can I get capital invested in my communities to create economic opportunity roughly twelve percent of census tracks around the country are being re classified as opportunity tones including almost all of Porter Rico conocer questioning just how beneficial these tax breaks will be to residents of low income areas and new reporting has emerged showing how this program has already been manipulated to further benefits the ultra wealthy for more on this I spoke with Justin Elliott a reporter at pro publica and Samantha Jacoby a senior tax legal analyst with the center on budget and policy priorities and I started by asking Justin to explain just what an opportunity zone is so this is a program that was created by president trump's tax law that was passed back in in twenty seventeen and the basic idea is to give series of tax breaks to people who make investments in poor areas around the country the goal is to incentivize new investment in the areas that need it most and there's an interesting history to these ritual get into in just a moment but let's let's focus on some of the latest news we just saw senator Cory Booker representative Emmanuel cleaver and representative Ron behind sent a letter to the treasury inspector general that would investigate the potential political influence on how these zones are selected what exactly are they talking about basically they're they're talking about the process by which the areas that are eligible for this tax break were selected so my colleague and I ProPublica and also other reporters at The New York Times have written a series of stories about how several very politically connected billionaires have to use their influence to get areas where they owned real estate made into these opportunities owns thereby qualifying them for this very lucrative tax break and doing it in ways that are potentially not really aligned with the original policy goals of the program the idea of using tax breaks to revitalize low income areas has been around for awhile where did it originate and how is the sort of legislation that we're seeing now different from its original intent as he said there there's sort of a long history of what's commonly called a place based tax incentives and and the idea is by encouraging investment in areas that are historically distressed where residents might have faced a systemic discrimination or lack of opportunity by encouraging investment in those places you might create widespread economic benefits new jobs things like that your examples of those going back to early nineties are things called enterprise zones new markets tax credits the difference here I think is that the opportunities on tax break is really centered around capital gains which primarily float to the top one percent of people so by definition these are gonna directly benefit wealthy investors and may or may not have benefits for low income residents of opportunities up before they they were rebranded opportunities owns and before the trump administration has created this new version of an opportunity zone did these ever work in the past did these enterprise improvement areas are business improvement districts or whatever we want to call them have they worked in the past Samantha I think there's Serena and mixed results the there's been criticisms of of these types of policies that they could be easier feeling gentrification and displacement of low income communities in these areas maybe they have some affect on job creation but it's not clear whether those jobs that are created are filled by residents of the is a low income areas or whether the jobs go to people from outside the areas so I talk a little bit about who's benefiting more but Justin we just talked about the news here that there are representatives who are who are concerned about how how these loans are being selected but wasn't Cory Booker a big supporter of the opportunities on program yeah absolutely it is a program that is very much had bipartisan support and actually existed as a standalone bill before it got put into the trump tax law Booker has definitely championed the idea I ELT sometimes refers to these areas as domestic emerging markets because that is the term uses and the idea of a in its current form anyways you can trace this back to Sean Parker whose Silicon Valley billionaire early Facebook investor who actually created a think tank in Washington DC to push this idea which it was ultimately successful so Samantha let's talk a little bit about how it works here is we are we're talking about things like capital gains and probably most folks like myself will not ever come near a capital gains so if I'm a wealthy investor and I'm looking at an opportunity stone what's going to drive me to what either create a business there or build a an apartment building there what what type of investment are these opportunities owns trying to attract and what's the benefit to people who are who have all this money to go there and and invest so just for a little background capital gains come from increases in value of expensive assets like stock or real estate typically only wealthy people have those and you know it's also important to know that capital gains aren't aren't really tax like other types of income like wages are salaries they're not taxed every year investors can actually avoid paying capital gains taxes by just holding on to their assets for over time and that itself is a big benefit and then when they actually are taxed at taxed at a lower rate than ordinary income but what this incentive actually says is Hey you know even if you sell your assets we'll give you extra tax benefits if you put that gain into an opportunity is on so the first thing is you you don't have to pay that tax that you would otherwise until twenty twenty six as long as you hold on to that investment and the opportunities on for a certain number of years and even then when you eventually do pay that tax you get a fifteen percent cut then the really big benefit comes later so all gain on your new opportunities on investment can be completely tax free as long as the investor hold on to it for at least ten years so what that does is that could create a really big benefit but particularly for projects that have the highest value for investors so just as an easy example an investor might get a much more generous tax break for say the high end real estate as opposed to investing in an affordable housing project Justin you have reported on a few places where these so called opportunities owns have really done what Samantha's laying out here which is benefited the extremely wealthy who have invested here one of the people we're talking about is a man named Dan Gilbert in Detroit who is he and how did he benefit from this opportunity zone Dan Gilbert is the billionaire founder of quicken loans the mortgage company he also owns the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team in the last several years he's gone on a buying spree in downtown Detroit as some several billion dollars into buying up actually most of downtown Detroit my colleague and I did a story looking at how all these areas in downtown Detroit where Gilbert owns most of the buildings have been named opportunities out it's a one one of the themes that emerge from this was that Gilbert has a number of already planned developments including you know luxury residential developments skyscraper office towers and those are now in opportunities and so what we're looking at is him getting potentially getting tax breaks for projects that he was going to do anyway when the entire point of the program was to incentivize new investment downtown has actually been gentrifying in part because of Gilbert's previous investments in the last several years and in fact these areas of downtown when you look at the data are are much wealthier than the rest of the city but those are the areas the wealthier areas that got named opportunities on's where Gilbert RD owns a you know again billions of dollars worth of real estate and part of the reason they were named opportunities owns is that Dan Gilbert's lobbyist got involved at both the state and federal levels and so there we go with that brings us full circle back to the question about who is influencing who in choosing these opportunities sounds and whether or not they're being chosen because of political motives is that not right that's right so the way that the law was written that there's an enormous amount of autonomy given to the governor of each state so basically the federal government was in charge of deciding which areas around the country were eligible to be named opportunities owns and then that list went to each governor who got to pick a quarter of those as the opportunities and so we see in the in in multiple cases including Detroit where there were you know influential local businessman who lobbied the state and you know in the end the areas were where they already on property were named opportunities so that that's that's what happened to tried and then there's been other reporting about the lobbying having at the federal level and on the eligibility front Samantha were these opportunities owns necessary how are these created and and essentially inserted into the tax law so as anything just mentioned previously opportunities own legislation was originally introduced in twenty seventeen and and the early part of twenty seventeen with bipartisan support but then nothing really happened was that until the end of the year when policy makers were considering big twenty seventeen year end tax legislation that legislation was passed with an extremely rush process you would typically expect with legislation like this to see you know months long public hearings broad expert input on on all sides of the different issues similar to what happened and in nineteen eighty six when there was a major tax reform effort that took years to it to to pass where is this was kind of rushed through in just a couple of months and opportunities owns were sort of slipped into it without a lot of attention being paid to it and and I think kind of as a result of that there are a lot of holes that the treasury department had tend to fill through implementing regulations which actually gave treasury a lot of power to make important decisions about who can actually benefit what types of investment can qualify and you know what they could have done was add significant public protections to it to make sure that investments have public
