Fresh update on "reuters" discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing
"The briefing coming to you live from the headquarters here in Zurich I'm todd rely coming up. We'll find out how journalists have been dragged into the tit for tat diplomatic dispute between the United States and China. Also ahead we assess angle miracles response to the pandemic and ask what Germany's future could look like without her at the helm plus Monaco's OGG will be here to explain the significance of this weekend's presidential election in Belarus, and then I'm Mallon Monaco's culture, and I'll be talking about two winners and losers innocent industry why art took to Alfresco in New York and also how newsroom are operating now that work from home may be set to finish. Grad. Sick. Yada. We're looking forward to that already all that right here on the briefing with me toddler birthday. And good afternoon from Somewhat Brightening Zurich I'm todd with I with you for the next thirty minutes or so we're going to head to Hong Kong now to find out how journalists are being used as pawns in a tit for tat diplomatic row between China and the United States. Of course, it follows a warning from Beijing State Run tabloid the Global Times that China will take retaliatory measures if it's journalists in the united, states are forced to leave the country. It's thought that the move could include targeting American journals living and working in Hong Kong. Well, as I said, crossing to Hong Kong now our Asia editor and bureau chief James Chambers is in that position James Evening. Good afternoon. Tyler. Let's Maybe we should start by saying does does this make a a Welsh Kiwi via the UK journalists, James Chambers feel good about the fact that they're potentially targeting American journalists because this is going to be good news for everyone else But how how serious is this rhetoric from the global? Times? Gave Away, my nationality now and obviously the Chinese listening in and taking notes I mean there's no one here. If you're you're British or any European nations, you're going to be happy about this because you know a Spritz will be next on the list. So, this is the latest news has been. Some tough talk from a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry and he's come out. Against a a move that the trump administration brought into place back in May that drastically reduced the length of visas given to Chinese journalists in the. US. So as of May the eleventh this year. Chinese journalists in the US have only been able to get visas that last ninety days and they've been able to in principle. Apply for extensions for the ninety days but the Foreign Ministry spokesperson speaking today to say that none of those journalists who have applied for extensions have been granted them. So I guess when that initial ninety day period lapses next week, we might see a wave of Chinese journalists being expelled from the US. Obviously the US took that move in the first place because. China was doing similar things to its journalists. In, the US. and. The latest threat from China could is that if the US continues down, this path is going to kick out all. American journalists from China and that includes. Hong Kong are there are not that many American journalists left in China in the mainland? Because Beijing, ojected them early this year but if they were to kick out. All American Citizens or American journalists from Hong Kong as well. That would have A. Big drastic effect on the ability of Newspapers Light New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal to cover China. James is two parts to this though on one side, you could say this posturing and of course, there's puffing up of chess on both sides of the Pacific but China really want this because of course, China wants their their story out there. Now maybe you would say, okay, we don't want some a medal journalists from the are times or CNN poking around, but you know the flip side of this though is that China has has really struggled to, of course, develop a global news brand of a record. Okay. Yes. We hear the Global Times of course, popping up in reports like this, but I don't think the world is rushing to read the global times every morning. So if the China story is going to get out there, they may not be thrilled with how it's told. Don't they need foreign journalists in position or not? Well I guess the Chinese wants her control. That narrative they want to control the China story and I guess in the past perhaps they they cared a little bit more. About Projecting A. Positive Image of China broad. But but. That that perhaps it's gone all out of the window and they're no longer interested in kind of hiding their intentions you mentioned the. Media brands there was a big push in the past to To push that see TV brand abroad. That was kind of the equivalent of of the BBC and they rebranded that as CGT n and they've invested in some really Swish headquarters around the world including in London. So they were interested in in in building these brands, but you're right. people don't Choon in to those channels to find out what's going on in in China and it's worth noting that. China blocks most if not ninety, nine percent of all. Western. Media Brands in China. So you even though we're talking about kicking out these journalists, it's not like people in China could read their their reporting. The New York Times is blocked. Bloomberg's bought BBC's blocked. You know basically everything's blocked in China. We're going to be heading to Germany in a moment but what does this do if you want? Yes, China wants to control the narrative but of course China then needs to get their story through they can have hardworking embassies. But at a time when you hearing that they a lot of German companies, a recent survey saying that up to one third of German middle stand companies who are based in China are thinking of giving up on the country how does trying to get that message out if you don't have trusted sources at any longer? China was never the most sophisticated at the whole soft power play abroad it it was trying you know with the the Confucius Institutes and a lot of the the media brands but that's all been. I mean not that Vail has been ripped away this year with all of these Wolf Warrior diplomats. And all of the kind of The belts in Rhode Initiatives. You know they've been. Going around world lending money to all of these countries to build this infrastructure. But you know it's it's become apparent that this kind of. Debt diplomacy as they've been calling it. Is Not A. Good thing that all of these. Emerging nations thought it was. And I think it does seem like. Essentially. Especially this year that. China is falling back on on what it does. Best. Knows best which is. The hard power So I feel like. I'm not saying they've they've given up on a on on the soft power but they, Sydney haven't been able to to Maastricht the same way that the US. James M hold onto your seat. Hopefully, you'll be able to maintain. The bureau and look, let's see how does this blow over or how how much has become a bit of a longer game again for for both sides of that ocean between our James Chambers, our bureau chief in Hong Briefing here on monocle twenty.

Microsoft Said to Be in Talks to Buy TikTok, as Trump Weighs Curtailing App
"President Trump has given Microsoft until September fifteenth to negotiate a deal to buy a piece of Tiktok that's a step back from trump's threat on Friday that he would ban the popular Chinese video APP, which he calls a national security risk. Let's bring in Greg Remai- Otas he's an editor at Reuters and was one of the reporters who broke the story and Greg Microsoft said in a statement that it's committed to acquiring tick tock but there are a few things that they I need to work out what are some of the main concerns over the next few weeks? So, they need to convince US national security officials that TIKTOK will not offer any backdoor to China's government were to be separated from its current owner by dance and be owned by Microsoft. All of TIKTOK data on American users is already stored in the United States, but because talks platform. It's algorithms is code are shared by other by dance APPs US officials need to be convinced that if the word to be a sale to. Microsoft. By then sworn, be left holding the keys and still have access to the APP let's break down just a little bit. So talks parent company, which is a Chinese company has taken steps in the past to try to appease US regulators on this front. But president trump still says it's a national security risk just remind US briefly how we got here. So we wrote a sexually broke news last year the Committee on foreign investment in the United States had opened an investigation into Tiktok. This is a US government panel, the scrutinises deals for potential national security risks. But of course what has happened since then is that relations between the United States and China have deteriorated. The president told reporters less last week that she was sexually looking at banning tiktok. But we reported yesterday that he will now allow this process to run, and if process will basically give forty five days for Microsoft and bind them to see the negotiate a deal that can you know a piece US national security officials So, this Microsoft deal would involve them buying tick. Tock Service here Canada Australia and new. Zealand so does that mean that this parent company would still operate the service in the rest of the world? How exactly what that work? That's the key question show. We understand that as far as those countries are concerned, Microsoft would be taking over but like the the. will be in the detail because this is being don show by will have no access no backdoor TIKTOK and to be fair that's probably why you show the president and some of his in the White House not being able to make up their minds because it's been like a very big question mark can you know that the -nology of Tiktok really be taken away from by them in a way that satisfies US concerns. Microsoft owns linked in, but otherwise, it isn't really well known as a social media space. How big of a deal would this acquisition of Tiktok for Microsoft I mean would then put it in the same space to compete more directly with the facebooks in the snapchat. So the world absolutely would be transformative and you may have noticed at the congressional hearings last week when. Four big technology company CEOS attracted the ire of lawmakers Republican, and Democrat Microsoft wasn't there. Beyond Lincoln Microsoft mainly focuses on. Business Software and and this you know and map that both hammer million. Users in the United States, would you know give Microsoft one of you the social media industries, gems, and? Turn them into. A very big player she'll be. To see how the president navigates the politics of this deal with his own base menu supporters are suspicious of big technology companies. They perceive any inherent bias against conservatives, social media, and at the same time you probably over the weaker many of his you know Republican supporters, Lindsey Graham, particular tweeting, making statements, encouraging the president to clinch the deal with Microsoft show. You be very interested to see how trump navigator this. Yeah, I mean some of the speculation is that trump backed off of earlier threats because it would alienate the party's younger users ahead of the election do you think that this deal will actually happen? The big unknown here is this technology issues we discussed this you sure absolute seperation back of suddenly has the cash to pay for this. The question is, can a deal be put together? That appeases the hawks in DC. That's Greg Room Yoda's editor of corporate finance in Deals at Reuters Greg. Thank you. Thank you.
Panasonic Talks Energy Density
"Are at with that out of. Of the way, let's get sort of the main news here, and this is on Panasonic batteries. This is per a Reuters report, they spoke with Panasonic's of US v Batteries and they report quote Panasonic corporate plans to boost the energy density of twenty. One, seventy battery cells supplies to test link by twenty percent in five years and commercialize a cobalt free version in two to three years. The head of its US battery business said and quote they also report that Panasonic has already cut the content. Content to less than five percent of Nikko Cobalt, Aluminum Cathode, which by the way I have to apologize about because the other day in an episode, I, was saying nickel manganese cobalt. So embarrassing, but anyway, Rogers also says that Panasonic already with the twenty one, seventy cells has improved energy density by more than five percent, and while they declined to link the further twenty percent increase to Tesla's future vehicles, they did say that in September, they will start converting lions at gigafactory Nevada quote as. As a prepares to further boost the energy density of the cells Takemoto set and quote. So overall I think pretty exciting information here though a bit limited in terms of what we actually can learn from it. We don't know if the energy density here for his two volume metric or gravel metric, and we also don't really know if that increase in energy density will coincide with a reduction in cost as well. Though presumably, it would because if you make more energy dense battery cells you need. Need fewer battery cells to actually power the thing that you were trying to power with those batteries. So I think presumably cost beneficial as well, and unlikely that Panasonic would be pushing for something if there was not eventually going to be a cost benefit from it or at least be affordable enough to have a viable use case at scale I think it's also exciting that they have a cobalt free version in the works for two to three years from now, but the twenty percent energy density. Density improvement is a five year goal. So presumably, that twenty percent increase would be after extracting out all the cobalt from the process thinking about that twenty percent increase in energy density though over five years from compound annual growth rate perspective, that's three point, seven percent per year, which I think does sound about right looking at the historical progress. If we look at the Model S. from two, thousand, twelve to two, thousand, twenty, the range on the Model S. increased from two, hundred, sixty, five miles. Miles EPA all the way up to four hundred and two miles. So that's a five point, three percent compound annual growth rate in the available range. But of course, not all of that is attributable to the energy density of the battery cell. There's a lot of efficiencies within the powertrain and even things like wheels and tires that are contributing to that rate. So the improvement in energy density is likely below that though again, really it's improvement in energy density per cost. That is most important. Important looking forward, if that twenty percent improvement was applied to the range on the model three today and the Monterey today that would put the model three range at about three, hundred, eighty, six miles up from three, hundred, twenty, two miles if it were just a straight twenty percent increase and then similarly for the Mata, why it would go from three, hundred, sixty, miles, two, hundred and seventy nine. But again, that's just the increase from the battery cells that assumes no other progress throughout the rest. Rest of the powertrain or the battery pack or innovations that allow for reduction in weight of the vehicle, things like that. That will also, of course, happen over time. The other option that energy density improvements allow for is obviously to put the same amount of energy in less space or with less weight, which would improve the vehicle's efficiency. So even with the same energy, call it seventy, five kilowatt hours, the vehicle would travel farther because of that increased energy density and may be the range. Range go up to three, thirty or three forty with the same energy capacity. The overall point here is that better improvements are going to keep happening. Those improvements are going to open up a lot of different options for electric vehicle makers and Tesla's best positioned to capitalize on the Trent.

Will Coinbase Do a Token Offering When It Goes Public?
"Big News coming out of this week. Coin base is exploring going public. Tell us more about this news. Hell firm, it is and how and when they Mico public. I don't know if this would count as big news 'cause. There's a kind of a Genera in reporting. You say big startup is rumored to go Public Co.. Of course there are that supplant we own point base is going public. Insist like writing things saying Robin Hood is expected to go public maybe this year. You know I mean there's ten companies you could write that headline about and I. Mean You know I. Don't WanNa. Be ungracious by thought that story. It was Kinda thin because I don't think. There's anything to it I mean coin basis is been rumored to go public this year for a long time, and is he? They're going to happen late this year or next year, so I'm not really sure what the news is here. Yeah I guess. You did mention I'd when we talked about your book. The last thing you came on the show so I mean just in terms of. White Reuters reported how firm. was what they were reporting in terms of like any SEC registrations or anything more formal like that. Talk to a couple of sources close to the company, and initially Reuters was going to try to run with the you know saying that like Morgan. Stanley had was going to be the underwriter and that's clearly not true. And them, saying there's a direct listing I mean. I think that could be possible, but I think the most interesting thing is can be what serve IPO. Is it the? because I know it went talked to fritters from recently one of the cofounders Aucoin base. He hinted strongly this some sort of token issue, and so I think it could be America's First Combo ICO AN IPO which would be super cool, so that's what I'm waiting to hear about. You know in terms of whether they're going public. Yeah, of course, they are but I think that part of the story is what's most interesting to me and so for that. Do you have any more details on what that might look like? Would it be kind of? You know I for some reason. I don't get the feeling. It's going to be the kind of issues that we saw in two thousand seventeen bio. There are these will. Does that have been happening the initial exchange offerings any details on what form might take. Now they're playing cards close to the best on that and I know I think as base has got more corporate a you know. I think there's a push Gillette appeal everyone does, but I think a lot of the people at the company including the light coders who work there are real believers in Crypto, and it would be sort of lame if they just did A. A Garden Variety IPO, so but in terms that regulatory part. That's hard I mean. Are they going to do a cell tokens to accredited investors, and then the cell general shares to the public, or can they get the sec to bless some token, and which could happen because we've been watching coin basic, really been spending a lot of energy hiring Washington insiders. You saw just hired. Judge Paul Gruel who's fairly prominent, a former federal judge, and then they have their former child council Brian Brooks went to be the head of the Worcester called the office of the comptroller. The currency control. Pronounced, controller I learned that. We should notice been our I should know by now. But. That's you know they oversee all the banks, so you can obviously see them. Trying to put a political lobbying pushed onto kinda. Get a blessing for this and censor the most mainstream crypto company. You know who knows maybe they will get You know they will get a blessing to do a token offering, but I'm pretty sure whatever's going on. They're gonNA cold. It really tightly 'cause leaking. The stuff is just going to piss off the regulators and could imperil. Enlisting so this is speculation. I mean who knows maybe they'll chicken out. Just raise the cashier ordinary way. I think a lot of Crypto community. Hope to do something more ambitious.
U.S. is 'looking at' banning TikTok and Chinese social media apps, Pompeo says
"Tic tacs, and late last night that it plans to exit Hong Kong. Within days as several tech giants have announced that there are pausing the review of the Hong Kong government request for user data in reaction to the national security law that China imposed on the region. And his current political expression in its future of the United States may also be in question that, according to the Trump administration, this is from Reuters. In the light of the recent events, we've decided to stop operations of the TIC tac app in Hong Kong. That's what a Chinese spokesperson or that's what Tic Tac has said. Meanwhile, there's a lot of conversation here in America about TIC tac, possibly being banned. Well, then people have been talking about it for months being you know what China based organization you know, China owns just about everything. They have access to everything and this tick top app. Is collecting a lot of data on people. A lot of companies routinely receive requests for user data from governments throughout the world, including Hong Kong is part of the criminal investigations. Facebook Twitter Google are among the companies that have said They would suspend operations in that region to look more closely at the law. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is speaking out against TIC Tac, and it's something that more and more politicians are talking about, possibly banning. Here in the United States. You're still on it. I am. Here's what Tic Tac. Here's what Pompeo says. We're certainly looking at it, Pompeo said in response to an interview. Question. We've worked on the issue for a long time, he added, citing the administration's prohibition against embattled China Telcom. Hallway. Now the apples recent become a vehicle for political activism, of course, after President Trump's official Twitter account invited supporters to request tickets, you know that Oklahoma campaign in Tulsa lot of tech talkers were requesting tickets and with no intentions of showing

Who really killed Blockbuster Video?
"I'm Peter Kafka and I'm Ronnie. Mola and this is landed the giants. The net flicks effect a podcast on Netflix's disrupted. Hollywood change the way we watch TV and movies. And how it should have been squashed by giant competitor, but ended up turning the tables and killing the video store. Okay Peter. Let's go back in time long. Before we had netflixing chill, we had blockbuster nights. Remember this tonight. Make a blockbuster. In the nineties and early outs, blockbuster was the world's largest video rental chain. It was a huge part of American culture at its peak, it was bringing in six billion dollars a year in revenue and had more than nine thousand stores around the globe. It was the place to rent movies it was. Social place like teens would meet their. You know people you know because that was one of the few things that you could always do as a high school student. Was You know you could get together with your friends and rent a movie and go to the cool, parents, house, and watch it where there's a copy of the wiz that I would like hide in a corner at blockbuster because I always wanted to be there when I come back for, and we would go in there her car then go into blockbuster and pick out a movie, and then we get a little treat you know I don't know. We pick two to three movies scary WanNa funny one and then in action. Nobody has the movie I want I. Even Video Blockbuster probably hasn't I mean? We have over ten thousand videos? Five six o'clock on a Friday night. Phones are ringing off the hook. It's never what do you have? That's good. It's always what you have. That's new that last voices Jason Bailey nowadays. He writes about movies for places like vulture in the New York Times, but years ago, he used to work at a bunch of video stores, including blockbuster, which he says wasn't as great as we might remember. I have much more nostalgic for the video store. Then I do for blockbuster in particular which really in a lot of ways. Ways killed the video store, flattening it into the sort of McDonald's version of the video store, right? That's what I remember about. Blockbuster killed my local video store replaced with blockbuster, which I did not like blockbusters were everywhere, and everyone rented from there, but that didn't mean it was a great customer experience, one of the big things that you always hear people who who don't remember blockbuster through a Golden Glove nostalgia talk about where the late fees or as they tried to rebrand them additional day fees or additional rental fees. They were outrageous. Boxer made a ton of money on late visas or additional day fees running. At one point late fees made up seventy percent of blockbuster prophet, and along with this highly fees, there are a long list of other problems limited new releases, long lines, shitty customer service all which is lousy for customers, which also made it lousy for employees. I got cursed out a fair amount. Again for you know just doing what I was told to do by corporate, but yes I would, I would be told that you know that. We were monsters that we were bloodsuckers. I had that thing back on time I saw you. You take it out of the box I was like I got called out like that I had people tell me I saw you in here when I dropped it off. You tell me you didn't check it in on time. I'm not paying that if it got heated, but this is all factored into blockbusters business model. The company even had a term for it managed. Dissatisfaction managed to satisfaction is a term that John Antioch. Oh the CEO Blockbuster explained to me, and that is is long as you give a consumer and. And of what they want. They will ignore the fact that they're not always getting what they want. This is unique heating. She's a journalist who covered enough for Reuters she also wrote a book and made a documentary about Netflix's history blockbuster understood that only twenty percent of customers who came in would get the movie that they wanted, and they would have to get something else the other eighty percent of the time.

They didn't really have a better alternative, and then all of a sudden they did. Again you've gotta remember. That netflix emerged in the late nineties when the Internet still felt pretty new. Amazon was just becoming release accessible selling books online. They're doing it cheaper than the competition and they didn't have to operate stores, so Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph to tech guys in the bay area are surveying the landscape and they thought hey, we could be the Amazon of something else.

DVD's kept him as long as you want. Without late fees DVD's had just come out. And suddenly there was this new way to watch movies that didn't involve these bulky VHS tapes. DVD's were smaller, more durable, and you could ship them for price of a postage stamp. So? Hastings Randolph thought. Hey, we could be them on of movies. This may seem obvious now, but at the time this was a big deal. Suddenly instead of having to go to the store and deal the crummy customer experience, he could stay home. You can hit a button and someone somewhere sent you the dvd you wanted instead of the one you had to settle. for which Netflix customers loved by the way they tended to order?

Amid Brexit impasse, Germany urges no-deal preparations
"Germany's chancellor. Angela Merkel has told EU member states to prepare for a no deal. BREXIT documents seen by Reuters indicates that an extension to the transition period were in now is unlikely, so all twenty-seven EU countries need to be ready for the thirty first of December when this period and all to find out more hear from Anna Rosenberg, she's head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy signal global, and she joins me on the line from the black forest in southwestern, Germany welcome, back, monocle twenty four. And what do we know about this document? Well it's it's a leak document that was probably leaked on purpose to highlight that the EU is still very much also counting with no deal and I. think that's the whole point about the document. It shouldn't be a surprise really that the US still at taking a no deal outcome as a real possibility, it's probably more revealing that it was leaked i. think that serves a purpose, and the purpose is there to put pressure onto the UK. Is there a suggestion that for the show. This is an element of public brinkmanship, but does that accurately reflect the mood? What's really going on in the negotiations? I think it does, but quite frankly would have been surprised. I would have been surprised. The EU would not be planning for no deal. Anyway. It is well known that the EU has already implemented all of the preparations necessary for no deal earlier in negotiations, and so we've been talking about brexit familiar for years now, so you has really covered SPEC, when a no deal. Deal happens. Of course it would still be highly disruptive, but it's no surprise that the EU is planning to be prepared so i. do think that really the aim here is to ensure that the UK knows that the EU is prepared, and that it will not agree to everything to avoid an ordeal, and how serious a prospect is a no deal at the moment. We personally don't think it's particularly. Likely, we give it a twenty percent likelihood it's if you look at the negotiations over the last few years. There's one consistent sector and it's that no deal has always been avoided. By either extending the deadline or agreeing to some. Last minute concessions and I think we're going to have to into the same direction, so from our perspective we believe the most likely outcome for the end of the year is going to be a partial deal or recall it sexual mini deals, simply because it's the least disruptive outcome for everyone. However, even though that is going to sound like good news, it's still a disruptive outcome. Right the going to be sacked. Sacked, as it will not be covered by partial deals, and as such. There's going to be an economic hit.

But London newspapers and the regional newspapers known as the provincial press worked out kind of complicated pricing scheme among themselves to make up for these changes in the telegraph system and the process, the provincial papers formed the press to give themselves collective bargaining power with Reuter they also negotiated a whole deal in which Reuter had control of the London news market. But the Press Association had exclusive rights to Reuters news outside of London. The Press Association. Also agreed not to do international reporting leaving that to Reuters agency. And this also contributed to Reuter tried to really diversify the businesses that he was in eighteen eighty and eighteen nineties because the nationalization of the telegraph and all the changes that then trickled down with all of this were eating into his profit margin. These kinds of negotiations. We're also happening internationally by eighteen. Seventy three primary wire services were reporting. The news from three different parts of Europe. Reuter was an England of us was in France and vote who we mentioned earlier was in Germany and rather than compete with each other. These three businesses got together to protect each other's monopolies in different parts of the world on January seventeenth eighteen seventy they agreed. That vote would be in Germany of us would be in France in Reuter would have the entire British empire. And this agreement was in place until nineteen thirty four. Once again this arrangement today would probably run afoul of antitrust laws and a lot of places, but at the time this was not an uncommon way of doing business, and it also had parallels things happening at the same time and the more political arena like the scramble for Africa, where countries are basically dividing Africa up amongst themselves. Also, these three services were intrinsically connected to each other Julius Reuter and Bernhardt full. Had both worked as translators for the agency which was known in French agenda, thus in eighteen seventy one the Duke of Saxe cobourg gotta made Reuter baron in Queen Victoria leader recognize his rank in Britain in eighteen seventy two Reuters expanded into East Asia fame year, Julius Reuter was also temporarily given huge control over multiple industries in Iran, which at the time was often also known as Persia Reuter had become friends with the Persian minister in London. And at the same time, the Shah Nassir eldeen shock collar was making a series of concessions to British interests. He signed what was known as the Reuter concession, which gave Reuter the rights to railways factories mining irrigation and telegraphs in Iran. This went really badly. Reuter got into this without really going through any British diplomatic channels in British politicians all over the political spectrum tried to. Distance themselves from it in editor in the times of London said in part, quote, there has been nothing like it before the king of kings abdicated, the functions if not the splendor of royalty and those still gorgeous and glittering is unable to make a road explorer mine or irrigate the lands under his dominion. So he calls in enterprising financier of the west and offers him many and precious advantages. If he will relieve the Shah in Shah of the real duties of royalty. Meanwhile, Russia which had been expanding into neighboring parts of the world saw this whole thing as a huge threat and suspected that all those British officials who were distancing themselves from what Reuter had done. We're really just trying to cover up their own involvement in a British power grab and the people of Iran were outraged. The Shah was making such huge concessions to British interests the Shara versus the concession after about a year, but Reuter still had interests in Iran. This. Revised agreement with the Shah established an Imperial Bank and his son George became its president the whole thing also set the stage for another concession of tobacco interests from Iran Britain, twenty years later, and that led to a huge uprising in Iran.

"New polling out from Reuters is breaking in the last few minutes, a growing proportion of Americans blamed, President Trump for a partial government shutdown that will cut off paychecks to federal workers this week, though, Republicans mostly support his refusal to approve a budget without tax. Payer dollars for the us Mexico border wall. According to a Reuters poll released on Tuesday, the national opinion poll ran from January one January seven now that is before the president of the United States gave his national address before he went down to the border. It's well the media were basically proclaiming as loud as humanly possible that oh this was Trump's fault. They said that fifty fifty one percents of adults say Trump deserves most of the blame for the shutdown which is four percentage points from December twenty first to December twenty fifth thirty two percent blame congressional Democrats than the shutdown seven percent blame congressional Republicans. According to the poll, obviously, those numbers are not what President Trump is looking for. But that's like he needs to press harder. Apparently only thirty five percents of adults in the United States support. A congressional spending Bill that includes funding for the wall. Twenty five percent support Trump's decision to keep the government closed until congress approves funding for the wall public support for a border wall shifted considerably over the past few years, the poll found that forty one percents of the public supports building additional border fencing that is actually down twelve points from. A similar poll that ran in the first week of twenty fifteen because Democrats have decided they no longer agree with basic common sense. Because President Trump is involved with that basic common sense. Well, that's why it would be great. If the media would ask Democrats to defend their own view of the common sense. It's why President Trump look he doesn't have much of a choice here. He has to double down on his own propositions. This is not one where he can compromise. It is the basis of his election is the basis of his point of view with regard to preserving the legality of the United States. He doesn't have a lot of moves left here.

However with breaking news, the president speaking out about the rush investigation. Whether he's worried about getting impeached last night, we reported that he sees it as a real possibility and has expressed concern to others about it. That was from a source close to the president. But when the president is speaking out on the record, it is a different story. He spoke about that. And the rush investigations hole with Reuters short time ago, joining me now is Reuters White House correspondent, Jeff Mason who conducted the interview if you ask the president about Michael Cohen and his guilty plea overpayments stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal. What did he say? Yeah. And I should say the interview was conducted by me and into my colleague, Steve, Holland and Berta Rampton, and we did ask him about that. And he said first of all about Michael Cohen that he was his lawyer and he relied on him. And that Michael Cohen should have known what to do or what the rules were. And And then then he. he went on to say that the the payments did not violate campaign finance laws. But if they did it would only be civil. But then again, he said, but it wasn't a violation. So he sort of caveat, caveat. He said a there was nothing wrong with it. But if it if there was something wrong with it, then it would be a civil violation. Did he say anything about if there's nothing wrong with that? Why did he lie about it publicly? Oh, no. We didn't talk about that. Specifically, and he did use the word we so he, you know, by saying the words, we he's he's suggesting that it was both. He and Michael Cohen who were involved in those payments on the Mueller investigation and the growing connection between we're growing understanding, and we'll connections. There were between the campaign and Russia that are being revealed in court documents sixteen by CNN's current count. What are the president's say about that? So we reference that and talked about the number of people who had worked for him before the campaign and during the campaign who had connections with Russia who done business dealings with Russia. And he said, I'm just hearing about this. When I mentioned a number. We. We're were talking about thirteen and he said, I'm just hearing about this, and then he pivoted straight to Hillary Clinton and said that she had had connections with Russia. But so he he just basically he pivoted from from that question and went straight to his two thousand sixteen opponent. So just to be clear the president who watches probably more TV than any president recent memory and more cable news than any president probably ever said. He's just hearing about all of these what you were referencing is thirteen and sixteen connections between the campaign or the transition and foes Russia. He says he's just hearing about it. And that's right. And but then he went on to say as we continue to discuss it. He said, well that's peanut stuff. So he was downplaying that. And again, going back to Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton, and their connections are what he believes that their connections to Russia being worse or or something that people should be focusing on instead of his campaign associates, right? And he's talking about connections for the Clinton foundation with with with. The Clintons we reported yesterday. The President Trump was increasingly concerned that that he might be impeached by the incoming house, or at least expressed that to people what did he say about that to you? So we asked him that very directly. I said are you are you concerned about being impeached with the house of representatives being taken over by by Democrats in two thousand nineteen and he said, it would be pretty hard to impeach someone who's done such a great job and who has not done anything wrong.

Sized Carolina spoke about the initial tension that institutions and governments perhaps had towards the internet as a technology that would potentially disrupt them altogether. I feel like we have a new wave of that again. And there's a gung ho extreme that's blockchain and bitcoin that in hotel hotel hotel, which is I think unhealthy, but I think there's some things that we might. Well, we might do well to reflect on and sort of ask ourselves. How do we harness that sentiment and weave it into companies like yours at Thomson Reuters? How do we influence the policy makers listening to us right now to not see this as a takeover or something of that nature? I mean, I personally think it's really exciting to think about a global electronic currency sort of value transfer cross. Border cross continent. I think it's super exciting to think about that. And the possibilities that come with that. Is it bitcoin? Is it something else? You know? I don't know what the currency will be. But just the fact that there is a framework there that can facilitate that is awesome to think about right. And I think that we need to have. You know, as many people as possible thinking about how how experiment with that. How to to make sure that whatever this new framework is is acceptable and inclusive. So that while we're off building this new global network and framework for us to to transfer value. You don't leave half the world behind because they're not connected to it. So I mean, I think the possibilities. There are quite a quite endless. I would actually like to not have to pay my Bank, you know, fifty dollars every tunnel. I want to move dollars from the us into South Africa, for example. Right. And this could potentially help with. Someone is has vested interest here. Exactly. So no, look, what do you make of this Carolina just to piggyback off that? I mean, I think that policymakers need to listen to a vested interest. Right. So in considering what needs to be done what the possibilities are think the voices of individuals the voices of commercial entities. The voices of all stakeholders must be hit. So I I I fear that perhaps what is perceived as the peps negative possibility were so scared we're not we're going to do is because we haven't spoken in after each other or listened enough to each other. And I think that the way to break this Papp's would be to generate a wide spread African discussion about what the possibilities and where we could be going. That's really well put I'm going to close by reading a quote from the us Commissioner for infrastructure and energy, Dr money Abuzaid who is quoted as saying in order.

"And and some of patch the traditional thinking that that speaks to one acknowledging its existence being able to assign ownership paps to it recognizing the catch of value, and perhaps the exchange of that value start where you will. Okay. So the basic suppose idea that I would shave starting to think about assets in intellectual property space would be to say you've got your tangible and intangible assets of assets that you can touch see feel here. Sometimes and assets that nebulous you you can't see touch Bill or anything like that. And so I that would be a starting point. And of course, when you have an intellectual properties and intangible assets. You can't always see touchier feel it right? It's created by law. And so when you talk about defining an asset what it is. And how you attach value to it in internet. Property law offense defined by piece of legislation. That says this is the thing. And this is what it looks like valuation is different normal intellectual property laws. Don't quite engage with valuing assets. So we look for the end beyond for valuing. And I quite liked what I had cited speak about earlier about the bankable pharma. Because I'm thinking this farmers probably have some intellectual property assets. And they're not being banked or loans are not being extended to them because they can't attach a figure of value to those assets. And so they cannot use them as collateral. So when she spoke, I just thought I wrote that down, and I thought that's really cool, and I'd like to go back to it later appeared on the way. And I actually love your distinction between tangible and intangible we mentioned earlier my role and Thomson Reuters as being sort of focused in financial services space. But I think another really good example of what an intangible asset is really is news, for example, Reuters most people if you're not a Bank or you're not a lawyer.
