"You know Matt we have a really cool guest with us now Back in 2020 and the heat of the pandemic we had KKR investing billions of dollars in credit strategies as most investors had dipped out Now a person familiar tells me KKR invested more than $5 billion in the last couple of months Joining us now to talk about what KKR is doing is a director at the company tal Rebecca thank you so much for joining us towel What are you buying right now And why are you able to step in when others are stepping out Yeah It's a great question You know one thing that I noted that not to be fearful when others are stepping out and what we're seeing is a lot of great opportunities being created albeit on a volatile backdrop And we're starting to think that high yield is getting more attractive during high quality pockets senior secured loan paper There's a lot of interesting dispersion also being created I would say intra sector And you know from an inflationary perspective we've already known about that for quite some time So we've been really looking at durability of cash flows really using that as our true north and credit and downside protection as we look across the spectrum on what we want to lean into right now What do you expect the fed to do and especially given your affiliation with the fed I mean you've got some really deep knowledge of how they work But they're in a difficult place right now because they're going to have to fight inflation and yet there are worries about slowing growth Absolutely You know I think our base case is that the fed has to continue to tighten Again we think that's something that the market has priced in and it should have been on investors minds for some time But that we don't see a way that they can pivot away from that given all of the moving parts in the market So we do foresee the rate hikes taking place as that continues to unfold making sure that we're as flexibly toggling between fixed and floating rate assets really thinking about our portfolio construction and keeping in mind all of the geopolitical issues in the backdrop When you look around you I know that you are finding opportunities but where do you find big risks and the places that investors might lose a lot of money Well it's a great question You know one thing that we've talked about a lot at KKR sometimes the market grapples with a concept we like to call perception versus reality And in this current chapter of the market we think duration risk is one thing to really highlight given the fed stepping in in 2020 you know conducive monetary backdrop or borrowers or extending their liabilities The longer end of the curve could see a little bit more volatility which we actually saw in January So being really mindful of that duration risk across our asset allocation And you know understanding that what was perceived once upon a time for example something like fixed income and IG that may not be the best risk adjusted return right now So going a little bit sub IG is where we would play What are the effects of the war towel I mean I know geopolitical uncertainty is hard to price in but now we know what Russia is going to do has done is doing And you can see the effects of businesses around the world Yeah absolutely First and foremost our thoughts are with people of Ukraine during this tragic and terrible time And KKR is fortunate enough to have established the kicker global institute over a decade ago led by general Petraeus and we're staying very close to this in over communicating with our clients and portfolio companies But we've incorporated into our investment process geopolitical risk So we're being extremely thoughtful you know intraday as the situation develops And quite honestly in Europe that's closer to the unfortunate conflict We are being selective You know there could be growth slowing there The net effects and second and third derivatives of supply chain issues and commodities So we're being extremely thoughtful and we'll see but we're just staying on our toes like everyone else Yeah interesting That's kind of like what me and mat were talking about earlier or even though the stock market is up that people are worried about those growth concerns I'm wondering you mentioned general Petraeus and his work with KKR How are you answering questions from clients What are the biggest things on their mind as they navigate this market here and abroad Yeah absolutely Firstly we're over communicating and from a business perspective we have very limited indirect exposure to begin with really in large part to our investment process And our platform is so connected and global that we're constantly cross pollinating across our different disciplines So we're just making sure we're ready and available We're taking note of every angle of the market And one thing to say is you know we're in the market day in and day out at very different verticals So we're one team is seeing something or another is not we're exchanging that information and making sure everyone is consistent on the same page By the way finale was and I have been talking about the libor OIS spread for the past few days and I see that you are responsible for the firm's libor transition effort How is that going to go What are we going to really see in a world without libor Yeah no you came to the right person on that So I think it's really interesting to see the widening in OIS right now particularly because most of those quotes are really coming from the panel banks something that we call expert judgment You're not seeing a whole lot of wholesale transactions So there's a gauge on what that bank and credit risk looks like But if you look at the spots where you look how stover has the liquidity so for us really deepens what we're seeing is a true adoption of the life after libor which I think is a net positive and a testament to all the work being done but it is not you know notwithstanding something that highlights a few of the challenges we've seen with libor historically that it can start to get a bit wonky especially in market environments like these where there's black and liquidity Tal great having you on Thank you so much for joining us and thanks to finale for booking our tal reback there director at KKR this is Bloomberg This is a Bloomberg you could save big when you bundle your.

The concern raised in the report. Is that these diagnoses that were tracked for this analysis. We're not found elsewhere in the records of for these patients. Both of these strategies are allowed under medicare rules but the findings raise concerns over the extent to which they have been utilized. Among the twenty companies flagged in the report investigators found that one received about forty percent of the questionable payments even though it only enrolled about twenty two percent of medicare advantage customers. The report didn't name the company but analysts at b. m. o. capital markets report that the enrollment share for these payments closely matched that of united health group during the period covered in the hhs report.

We're going through to italy. probably okay. they've been cleared to lineup on runway. Seven right so lineup. On white runway seven right. The crew however commenced their takeoff roll without clearance and departed creating creating a conflict with another aircraft on final approach to runway to. They aircraft continued team to milan for a landing without further incident. I mean they were ready to go so they decided to do it. Do it on a tax away. So that's that's true. They used a runway lined up apparently with a centerline with runway which is good good checkpoint for single extra points So in the final report on the eighth of september This year the flight crew believed that they were the only aircraft traffic in the vicinity which is really not an excuse. the low workload in traffic monitoring due to the low aerodrome traffic could have resulted in some form of reduced alertness. By the flight group. The flight crew claimed that they heard a takeoff clearance. When there had not been one there was no reback of takeoff clearance by the flight crew like had checked the approach path. Runway seven right the remedy that they were told to lineup and wait and found it to be clear pilot flying mentioned checking the surrounding vicinity for approaching aircraft traffic but did not detect the eighth three twenty. That was approaching room. We two i think it was one of the stealth models probably. Although the tower controller had managed the takeoff situation appropriately. it would have been desirable at the flight. Crew could have been made aware of other aircraft traffic in the vicinity. The tower controller could have assisted by providing additional information when.

"Covered demographics and culture. And i'm carrie. Johnson the national justice correspondent and we have a special episode today. This is the docket our ongoing series where we look at the big legal questions of the day. Today we're talking about something very much in the news we're talking about vaccine mandates as yet another wave of cove in nineteen spreads throughout the us. We've seen businesses cities and parts of the federal government begin to require proof of vaccination and with that comes a debate over not just the ethics of vaccination but also legality whether it's legal to require vaccination to do any number of things like get a job or go to a sporting event or a restaurant and talk about this. We have legal expert. Carrie johnson but also another expert. Who've you brought kerry. Yeah we have law. Professor lindsey widely from american university. Here with us. Today she directs the health law and policy program there. Hi professor wiley. Thanks for inviting you to join you. Oh we're happy to have you. And i guess the best place to start is with kind of a simple question isn't legal to require. Vaccinations for cove in nineteen. I think there may be a very old supreme court case about this from all the way back to nineteen o five. There is an that decision jacobson. Be massachusetts has gotten a lot of attention over the last A year and a half or so. It's actually a decision that was very relevant to the kinds of social distancing measures and business restrictions. That were used a four. we had A a widespread availability for a safe effective vaccine the case itself was about a vaccination mandate this case actually involved a pastor who had immigrated from sweden and i think he had a bad reaction to a vaccine years before right so in the early nineteen hundreds smallpox outbreaks were fairly frequent and many people had been vaccinated earlier. You know as children but needed to be reback stated as their immunity wayne so henning jacobson was one of those people. The the state of massachusetts passed a law that gave authority to local boards of health to make a decision at any given moment in response to an outbreak that smallpox vaccination should be mandatory for all residents of their local area. If in the opinion of the medical experts who were serving on the board it was necessary to protect the public health so the city of cambridge made that determination. They then you know went through the effort of outreach to get get everyone vaccinated. When they came to henning jacobson. he objected. Now he happened to be a pastor but in the litigation he did not raise religious liberty. And that's the cause in nineteen o five. The supreme court had not yet applied the first amendment to state governments. And so it just wasn't an option on the table for him at that time instead he argued that vaccines are ineffective. He argued that they don't prevent transmission and he argued that they were harmful Sound familiar the f. The court described those arguments as not seeking a medical exemption but rather reciting the alternative views. that differ from medical consensus and that those arguments did not warrant an exemption extension from the requirement to be vaccinated so Jacobson was actually The subject of a criminal enforcement action the city initiated proceedings in criminal court to collect the penalty It was five dollars which Just as gorsuch recently pointed out He looked it up So he thought it was important and said it was about one hundred forty dollars By today that's real money. Yeah that's real money In that criminal proceeding by the state back was when jacobson raised his arguments against vaccination. There was some indication i believe. Historians have found that he was being supported by active anti vaccination groups. At the time we tend to think of antibac- saination something recent but it has been a lot around as long as vaccination been around. It seems like the overarching theme from most of the jurisprudence from nineteen o five has been a public safety and public health sometimes will prevail over individual desires in and give way to the common good. Am i getting the overall stream of legal decisions right there. That's exactly right Our individual rights under the constitution are not absolute bay can be counterbalanced by pressing public health or public safety needs and that's true in a pandemic as it is in in routine times as well that old case we just discussed jacobson. V massachusetts talked about the power of state. But it's this analysis different when it comes to the federal government we haven't seen president biden issue a nationwide mandate but is it law or politics. That's causing some reluctance there. I think it's a combination of the two. Actually there are different constraints not based on individual rights but based on federalism and also separation of power. What i do think we were likely to see is some incentives An and conditions on things like participation in medicare for hospitals and maybe skilled nursing facilities nursing homes That's very different from the kinds of mandates that were seeing employers adopts and that we're seeing at least a couple of local jurisdictions consider for patrons at certain businesses and speaking of employers. What you were just talking about private companies have really been in a big way leading the charge here on requiring vaccines and. I'm wondering if you can tell us about some history here. The the covent vaccine isn't the first or only vaccine that businesses have required for their employees. Am i right on that note. That's correct although we typically seen those requirements limited to certain sectors where the risk of transmission is higher or where the employees are working with vulnerable populations and so for example very common for healthcare employers to require flu shots and a whole host of other shots as a measure to protect patients but also to some extent to protect health workers themselves so for example many require on hepatitis. Vaccinations in addition to flu shots. All kind of Childhood vaccines that we tend to get as a condition of attending school the other Kind of common requirement applied to adults who are over. The age of eighteen has been university requirements college Attendance requirements college students in many states are required by law. Not just by the option of the college to get a meningitis vaccine. Because of a higher incidence of of meningitis outbreaks in kind of congregate setting on on campuses. And we've seen these same groups sort of lead the charge on vaccination requirements for cova. Did that makes sense because some of the same concerns. Apply to kobe as apply to flu or meningitis. And also because these are entities employers universities who already have the basic infrastructure in place to impose these kinds of requirements..

"All the progressives in between the. I'm not going to trust as operation. Were vaccine no way until joe biden got elected and then suddenly we all needed. And you're a terrible person. If you don't get it we are a people of contrarians. Republicans are in charge. Democrats believe x. If democrats are in charge it's the republicans who believe x and if republicans believe x. Democrats believe negative x not why negatively the exact opposite of x. It's the way we are a country. What the government is doing the mask mandates the vaccine mandates the vaccine passwords the demands reback scenes the demands for schools to Socially distance and wear masks. All of this. This is not about controlling new because the government cannot control you. The mayor of the district of columbia ignored her. Own mask mandate at an indoor reception after a wedding and then used liberals in the press to attack the reporter who exposed it. The washington post. God bless them had to call bs on the mayor of washington. Dc and say no. No she actually was violating her mask. Mandate who cares if the reporter wasn't invited who took the picture the mayor of atlanta georgia. Kisha crimewave bottoms has decided instead of fighting crime. She's gonna fight. The virus by imposing a mask mandate in the city. Hardly anyone in atlanta is wearing a mask. I know 'cause. I'm there all the time. My own office has amassed mandate now hardly ever see anybody wearing a mask roam the hallways. You can't tell americans what to do you just can't do it. Hardly any of them will comply except in far left progressive enclaves but the democrats have to be in power and the same and far right enclaves with the republicans are in power. They'll comply and attack. The other side is being noncompliant when the democrats all comply with each other right so we'll do government to do. The government should try to control. No the government can't control you. You're not listening to the government and the police aren't listening to police aren't even policing anymore. They've been under attack. Know what's going on here is theater. This is not some government plot to control you. That's just kooky conservative conspiracy theorizing because joe biden is in charge and it sounds good to a bunch of crazy people on social media. Who you're building your fan base off of know what's actually happening is theater. The government of the united states of america has proven itself incapable of fighting virus. A microscopic organism. the government of the united states cannot fight it effectively. And so it's going through a bunch of theater to try to convince you that it is fighting effectively. It's not this is all about keeping you from freaking out about your government. Failing it's very much like the tsa in insecurity theater airport. You know most of the theater that you see at the airport when you go through security is exactly that theater. It's not actually great at deterring terrorists theater to make you feel safe. The government grasping at straws is designed to avoid a nationwide panic. And make you feel safe. The problem is on display. When you watch television every time anthony vouch he goes on television now. He contradicts himself and makes matters worse. He scares people. He inflames the sensibilities of the media. Who then rush out. Pure born francis collins the head the national institutes of health. He's not on television as much as anthony. Voucher collins is a bit weird dude and he went on television the other day and told people that parents needed to start putting masks on in their own houses around their children and then after he was off television to open my bad. I misspoke.

"I think the committee ought to look at security failures. why the capital was better protected. I mean to me. It was a surprise on january. Six that an exterior window at the us capitol that. It's possible the break that i am surprised. Those aren't bulletproof. Glass reinforced super hardened materials But at the same time so here was a at least a found the number three republican at a news conference before the hearing. She said quote. The american people deserve to know the truth that nancy pelosi bears responsibility speaker of the house for the tragedy that occurred on january six on quote and bill. I guess the argument. I'm trying to make here is that I think by refusing to acknowledge trump's it role in spinning these elections conspiracy theories calling rally-goers to the capital It's it's falling into that trap. I think that's gonna be median. Voters will see that as untenable. Yeah i mean. I think to defend the lease vanek. I don't. I don't think that what she said is necessarily wrong. Nancy pelosi bear. Some blame look a lot of this. Effort has been to blame donald trump and to to say that he instigated this. I'm not sure that's technically true. I don't think he helped. I think i think donald trump's fault lies more with after the events you know trying to defend it and so forth or downplay. But look i i would say While that is a risk. I think the far great risk is what is the dominant narrative in american life today and the dominant narrative is that republicans were leading a coup. There that everyone that came was a white supremacist or something. Threatening democracy that our country was a danger. I mean this is the drumbeat. This is what. Mrs pelosi wants to come out of that committee. So i'm equally concerned. It was an awful day and there was a lot of ugliness. There i mean i can't imagine anyone justifying breaking through a window at the capitol any kind of violence or even just going where you're not supposed to go however i think what we're faced with now. Is this deliberate attempt. I mean to tie it to nine. Eleven and these aren't these aren't fringe. People saying this. These are some of our leading politicians. Saying i think that's at least an equal danger and i think that is the specific goal as i say i would. Actually i think the other tragedy is that we're not getting a real commission to look at it like the nine eleven commission which i think you know fairly tried to do its job and assess things because i think we could use answers non-emotional answers not just on how bad was but where the faults were without necessarily looking to assign blame but to try to identify weaknesses and so that they don't happen again and so that our capital is invulnerable. And i think this is. I think this is speaker. Pelosi's great disservice. Everything she touches. See politicises and i think that what's dominating Her moves now is to create a narrative to paint all republicans as as Insurrectionist or white supremacists than i think.

"Pricing down to our daily work practices. Why i don't dispute that at all though before we get there let me let me pick on some a couple other specific things in the order that just show the difficulty of working through the administrative state and also again to me. A lot of this stuff looks like small potatoes and trying to get nice headline. So there's a piece of the order that says the secretary of transportation shell publish for notice and comment it. Proposed rule requiring airlines to refund. Baggage fees passengers luggage is substantially delayed. There's another good example of something that sounds great getting headlines but is this really a competition issue. Everybody's annoyed if you have to pay the bag fee and your bag doesn't get your destination In order and on time with you But again i. It's hard to see for to my i that that's a real competition problem in the airline business There's another one Asking the fcc to consider prohibiting unjust or unreasonable early termination fees for end user communications contracts. So there again bill. A so the biden administration to saying if a cell phone contract or something like that and there's a termination fee we would like the f. fcc to look into maybe perhaps Deciding that unjust examples of that Are a problem. But i other than getting great headlines. It's hard for me to see that that is really going to make a difference in the economy will. That's what the whole exercise is about if you read the executive order in the fact sheet with it It's basically promising generalities like we're going to save money on the internet organ a lower prescription drug prices. These are generalities but then you see the the way they're going to do. This is to expand some administrative agencies. Say in these markets. I mean you just mentioned The baggage fees. It seems to me if this is really a big thing for for customer. Some airlines is going to do that on their own. Do we really need to to feed the beast here. The administrative state by adding people and adding powers to some reggae to some body and adding what they're going to regulate You know that that's why the the real question is. What is the price of these things when they say they're going to lower prescription drug prices. What is the price. We're going to pay for that. It's certainly going to be a bigger government and so forth. The what are perhaps the unintended consequences. And i think this stems from the other thing that that's flowing from the biden administration which is a resumption of the assumption that is inherently bad. And that was not the dominant any trust assumption for for decades Until robert bork came. Around and i think he changed. You know successfully argued a better. A better measure is is this harmful to consumers and to put that in context. I mean some of it is why are they. Big are these companies big. Because they've had unfair advantages from the government or some other unfair advantage or are they big simply because consumers like them and they have a lot of that they're pleasing customers and so the customers sign up for. I think that's all going out the window. Now hang tight. We'll be right back you're listening to potomac watch from the wall street journal. I'm alex you a host of the reback from there.

"We sneak out the back door. Would you have confidence that. The americans are going to be there You know when the taliban is knocking down the doors and combo. I i don't think so. Look from the start. The taliban and al-qaeda their argument to their to the people in these countries has been. America does not have the staying power. They will cut and run and we haven't been serious for years. When when president obama announced his surge fr- afghantistan at west point the very next sentence announced when he was going to end the search. I mean we're not serious. President trump was an eager about winning. They are strengthening things he just wanted to get out and again. I remember the last time we thought that afghanistan wasn't that important to us. Somehow they knocked down two buildings in manhattan and attacked the pentagon. So i Especially at this point where. The alternative like joe biden sort of made a false comparison saying i'm not going to send thousands. You know to put them risk zo. Where committing them to combat and so forth. no what we really need now is just a presence The air and to help the government primarily with air power into support them again. We haven't this year. I believe we have any troops in in combat. And i think that's a cheap price we again. We did it in europe. We did it in asia. We're still doing it in those places and we're doing it for our own benefit in these places. We're losing such a capability in afghanistan. remember in benghazi. One of the problems was that planes were several hours away. We had nothing you know in the vicinity that we could We could send so. I'm very skeptical of all. These claims will be there. We can handle it from the air. If we're doing this this is done for domestic purposes because people are tired of it and so forth rather than explain to people being there is kind of the price being world leader to prevent them from doing what they did in two thousand in one by using it as havens to come and attack us.

I mean name the way i was branding it in all of that so i i just a lot of personal things was happening anyway so i took a break. Here comes two thousand twenty and this is actually before the pandemic I was talking about redoing rebranding podcasts and everything but i just didn't i didn't know where to record.

Intangible was that you know a makes a defend pockets. Yeah it could be one of those things where you know said it'd before we got started doing it. As long as i have over the years you just start accruing and you figure out what works for you so i have like. I am in my opinion. Have maybe three four different setups. I have low tier mobile. I have the home studio. I have a more of a combination between the two. I had had a birthday last week. My girl got beat has really don't mixer and and and it's like the mixer that you can take phone calls and everything and his mobile and i'm like oh this is this is crazy.

Sometimes beauty rest on. His laurels gets a little lazy. But that's not the case with this one. I feel the passion for this project out of junior. So i kind of an odd team up for me to. I would have never like head those two to work together. They're both very egos. So why wonder if they picked the Ramona junior because he had worked on the regular daredevil book within the center for awhile point so they knew he they knew he could draw some level that this the story app pull the absolute best out of him. Oh yeah and again. It's you know when you get a good inker and stuff. But yeah i mean arneses is great again i think is still you know the become. A classic story has to have good story in good art. Yeah it has to like a like the perfect storm stories. La for comment came together. But yeah obviously a lot of them over critics that i agreed. They think of the nineties. Is the low point for comment creativity. I just have to like totally disagree in that. Just kinda shows that their total boomers. They say things like that. Because i was just like a really a rejuvenating. Renaissance like yeah. We had death of superman in nightfall and things like that. But it re- really did rejuvenate the Comic industry love it or hate it. And i think that it's just so busy. You say that it was a creative locally and you see a lot of older Reviewers say things like that. Oh i know. I mean it's not the nostalgia for me because i love golden age and i can call it out through the cheesy point stuff that out. I love But i don't think that new loving ninety stuff isn't a salad. I think it's not even a big. It's very objective mask and all that in some of the best story came onto the nineties. No i mean there was good stopping in. The night is just because some of the some was ultra violent in united skimpy costumes. And all that. I mean the film it and you know you have to update with the time for every generation or get left behind. Look at you comics in twenty twenty and find me any year. I mean you can pick out good and bad in any year in comics brought up when i was doing the research for this. Is that a lot of people. Were so shocked. Know comes out of the drek of the ninety. The early nineties at that you now. He no is is. It's kind of like shocking. To go back on read old reviewers that are like you can tell. They're super bowl. But now the but then this trade off but yeah they said when they went for. The graphic novel mini series. They had to take a couple of pages out. Like there's a page of like matt following mickey's father in the subway and then there's matt hanging onto the kidnappers the roof of his car and stuff. That's the thing that's what he loves to do. And of course we got like a big close up the kingpin. that's great. The great posted his fancy cigarettes. Yeah i didn't want appointed. I didn't want to be that person but yeah smoking. A cigarette holder got to get nicotine on his fingertips say that cigarette holders in the red skull virginia newport. Yeah excellent if you know if you've never read it i think you should read it if you're you never know where to start with daredevil. This is a great one. I think it's highly recommended. Probably like number one almost people's lists i think especially if you're not too familiar with the origin story. I mean yeah. I think this is definitely a mystery and i think honestly like i said i think it was definitely right now. The jumping on point because like it is not to out. If you really want to know more you can either. Reback issues are continue reading from that point forward. Just have the general gist of things exactly. Who's a big plus. But today again this is one of the good frank miller stories before he went off the rails. Yes again waiting on that next city. That's all of them. Saying calling him out your old. Give me city movie. I mean like you call out the stuff and i. I think that works better for even daredevil than even batman absolutely like i said very similar with the you know especially origins with dr gangster gritty underbelly of their city. You know even though you know that means pants are like rich in nine alley you know. Jack stands up for what he believes in. It's kind of you know. Yeah i mean. I don't know if it's because he's more of a known quantity or his. He is the rich kid. But yeah i think i think the frank frank miller works even better on daredevil than does obama. Absolutely because you know. His dad was already in the underbelly so he was already underbelly adjacent. You know you any you know. He grew up poor the streets plant. Stick ball it's so much more authentic and believable. You see all the crime and corruption in your your parents live and that kind of manner on top of the now as it definitely affects you kind of more. You're not sheltered in your big ivory tower in gotham palisades. You know and of course he's gonna stick and stuff like walk for like a father figure or like a purpose soon you know and then you know you have your senses. Your your sites from a young age is just a lot of trauma and that's the thing about matters like they just constantly top gave. You just can't catch a break in his life. Exactly scientific yeah you go a lot more sympathy inches like really root for that character a lot more. Sometimes you just kinda warm. Who civilians like story job in comic book form in the kid a break and matt's like the underdog you know. Bruce has always fancy toys. Matt usually just has like billy clubs. He lucky even have an apartment about especially blown-up so yeah out i'm so excited to be talking daredevil oriented so many great things that bring up about the character so i look forward to it all right so she tall.

I have for movie news though as far as things go. And i agree with you though that that sear s should be a series on netflix series. Hbo max that's should not be It just it shouldn't be a movie. I agree and not only that. But i hope they don't try and do one hundred fifty million dollars budget vs superman and actually move will because hell to make that money back with one hundred and fifty million dollars budget especially whenever you're dealing with a twenty twenty world.
