"The humanitarian and environmental case for bitcoin. By alex glad stein can bitcoin reduce aid corruption. Help end dependency and bootstrap renewable energy for emerging markets. Bitcoin is typically thought of as an investment and a strictly financial innovation. But what if some of its greatest impact over time ends up being in the humanitarian and environmental spaces. This essay will explore some of the major challenges in the realm of international development and will argue that donors should be looking at bitcoin.

Philip gurvich tells the history of aid. The industry he wrote was largely born in nineteen sixty eight from western compassion triggered by the televised starvation of children in nigeria's breakaway biafra province. The impulse to help those less fortunate in the world around us has become a vast two hundred billion dollar foreign aid industry. The twenty two wealthiest governments provide approximately sixty percent of that sum with private ngos companies and foundations funding. The rest around a third of government foreign aid is classified as development assistance. A third as humanitarian relief and a third is military or security support in total over the past six decades more than four trillion. Dollars of aid has been sent. from rich countries.

She pressed JP moving Jamie Diamond and called him quote the start of the overdraft show. So here's the thing. You and your colleagues come in today to talk about how you stepped up and took care of customers during the pandemic, and it's a bunch of baloney. In fact, it's about $4 billion worth of baloney, but you could fix that right now. FBI See, reports said banks thrive through the pandemic. The industry generated a record $76.8 billion in profits during the first quarter. Democrats wonder why more of that money isn't going to middle class and low income families.

They weren't talking about hiv and lesbians. They were talking about hiv engaged. Men so you still feel like you good. No one was talking about it with women only knew what i saw on the evening news. I remember once watching the guys go up to capitol hill and they on stretchers wheelchairs. And i'll walk. I was so scared.

Why Leaders Need to Get Better at Changing Their Minds with Adam Grant

"Guest. Today is adam grant. Adam is an organizational psychologist and a ted speaker who helps people find meaning and motivation at work. He's a bestselling author and he's also the host of worklife a great podcast. You should check out in his new book. Think again adam challenges us to slow down and stop doing an executing all the time and actually spend time thinking thinking about our business where it's going what problems we have to solve. Why is it that we have such a temptation to just stay on that treadmill of producing an executing and we never stop and make the time to think one is that whip rewarded for what we deliver right and it's sometimes hard to connect the dots between cardi. I've got a bunch of new ideas or a fresh perspective and and what that actually means for my small business. I think the the second thing is we get rewarded for doing things. The same way over and over again that gives us excellence of execution. It helps us build productive routines and then we get really comfortable in our best practices. And i think the danger of that of course is that we don't look around ask if there are better practices and i think what a lot of us end up doing. Is we think too. Much like preachers and prosecutors. When we're in the mindset of preachers were convinced. Where right when we're thinking like prosecutors were proving people who are challenging us wrong and that means we stop thinking flexibly and sometimes we fall into the trap of foolish consistency and we see this happen all the time with huge companies right. I don't think that that berry or blockbuster kodak or sears. Had any problem with doing right. They were great at executing. The problem was they were executing the things that made them great in the past and they missed out obviously on a bunch of digital disruption. Some of which was brought from the outside. But if you look at a kodak they actually pioneered digital imaging and then they said no. Our business model is selling film. Obviously that didn't work out very well for them. and i see the same dynamics. In small businesses pretty regularly where people are unwilling to rethink their strategies their products services on some of their practices that have driven their success in the past. And and that means sometimes we get trapped instability where we should be embracing change. I love the kodak example. Because in hindsight we can all see how they actually could have become instagram me. They were the market leader in photography. And had they been thinking this way. They could have shifted that and caused that revolution. Knowing what you know what you studied that goes into this book. Think again if you could go back and be a consultant into the executive team at kodak at that time what do you imagine they would have been saying that was keeping them entrenched in. And what would you tell them about how they were thinking and the opportunity that they would miss if they didn't change the way they fought that such an interesting question. Well i would have. I mean it would have been great to introduce them to the future of the internet. Talk to them about how we were. All going to be posting selfies. One day but i think long before that where i would have started would have been to talk to them a little bit about the fat cat syndrome right where we tend to rest on our laurels and get complacent when things are going really well. And that's the perfect time to shake things up because we have the resources and slack capacity to do it. And then i think the next thing that i probably would've done is i would have encouraged them to stop preaching that they were right. Stop prosecuting me for being wrong and instead think a little bit more like scientists daniel one of my all time favorite experiments was done recently with small business owners in italy. So they're all pre revenue. They're taking a three to four month. Crash course in hottest start and run a business. They all get the exact same training and education. What they don't know is that half of them have been randomly assigned just to think like scientists in the way that they build and run their businesses. They're told your strategies just theory. Go do customer interviews to develop some specific hypotheses and then when you launch her first product or service. That's just an experiment to test your hypotheses and it turns out that group that's just encouraged to think like scientists over the next year they bring in on average more than forty times the revenue of the control group which is a stunning effect. Right and the major reason why they're so successful when they think scientists is that there are more than twice as likely to pivot they. They run their their first product. Launch or service launch and. it doesn't work and instead of doubling down. They say you know what i guess. I learned that my theory was wrong. Or hypotheses. didn't work in this market or a need to rethink my minimum viable product. And i would have encouraged kodak to do the same thing. I would've said okay. You all are great scientists when it comes to figuring out how to process film and build a camera. Why don't you apply that same. Ab testing that you normally do with products to your strategy to the kinds of products that you create to how you run your company and let's just let's try the digital camera. You have the technology what's going to happen if we roll it out instead of waiting for a couple dozen get rolled out first and then saying lips. It's too late. What are the hallmarks of thinking like a scientist that we don't see when you're thinking like prosecutor or a preacher who i don't think you have to own a microscope or telescope writer even a lab coat thinking like a scientist to may just means you favor humility over pride and curiosity over conviction. That means you know what you don't now and you're excited to discover things that might actually teach you a fresh perspective or you know an area of expertise that you don't currently have access to and one of the things that scientists do best at least good scientists right sometimes. Even scientists don't think like scientists but good scientists is is somebody who says i'm knocking to let my ideas become my identity right. I'm not going to start to define myself as as the kind of person who only leads a certain way. Or i won't define us is the kind of business that only does one thing and i think that flexibility is is a huge part of what allows the scientific thinking mindset to allow small business owners to continue adapting and not only responding to change the world but actually creating

Basically everything we said in that first episode about repressed memory and and the panic and all that stuff is still totally valid. But it was worth you know. We like being totally clear as c. Say on this show presenting a full picture of the science and so we delved into sort of the other side of that so super fascinating episode. Oh that sounds awesome. I haven't heard this week's sl yet. Largely because i was prepping late like one. Am your time on the night before. So i feel like it's it's okay buddy.

"Regime. This does he. Does he miss the fun stuff bad at all. 'cause so good at it i. I don't know sir to be completely honest. He doesn't know where he is. He has no idea where his so starting last march joe biden started saying that he had a plan for dealing with corona virus and trump didn't care what one part of his plan first of all. He criticized the president before the calendar turned on the month of january last year. The president shutdown travel from china into the united states biden said that was xenophobic. You how many lives that saved. He said it was a bad bad. Move to stop people from coming into this country and now he is imposing a restriction on south africans which will soon be extended to irish british and some european citizens. Isn't that interesting. How very interesting. Another move of his president trump had an executive order in place that kept the chinese government from having control of the ability to buy into the american power grid because their ability to shut it down. It's the first thing. Joe biden lifted. But here is something. We're going to keep our eye on dr fauci the rockstar. Who had such a great year last year said that he was gonna stay on under joe biden. He was excited to stay on under. Joe biden. well how about when. Joe biden's senior adviser. Cedric richmond tells pamela brown on cnn that there was no plan for the virus rollout when in fact she was in charge of that the reality behind the scenes of getting a vaccine distribution plan into action and building on what the last administration left what. What's actually going on behind the scenes. Airport is the last administration didn't leave anything. They didn't leave a plan and they just want. Okay go ahead. They didn't but if you look at it They vaccinated the easiest populations that is i. responders and people in nursing homes. And so now. We have the task of vaccinating american people which means going to where they are. The president has rolled out that he liked to have More mobile Vaccination vehicles that he would like to use government buildings and more federally supported Sites so that we could give out vaccines and look. It's not going to be easy but we're going to do it but it's also going to take a state partners and part of this is why we're calling on congress and the american people to push for a passing american recovery of plan rescue plan. Because we know we're going to need resources to get these vaccinations out in arms of people. Who need them. Okay we're just really want to circle back to what you said at the top of the didn't leave anything in the foul. She was asked about that yesterday and he said no. We're not starting from scratch. So where is the. Where's the truth. You can stop there. So biden is blaming trump for everything. The problem is if trump's at fault it's vouchers plan so if vouchers plan was faulty. Why did you keep him. we're starting from scratch. There was no plan there was no roll out was nothing biden also says and the media has just oh this is great a hundred million people vaccinated in the first one hundred days. That's a million a day. Guess how many were already being vaccinated before biden. Got into office a million a day. Well gosh if you started from scratch. How'd you start doing a million day on day. One which is exactly what had been done for the last three weeks..

That could not guarantee who the people were who were coming here. I remember South game and was one of those but the list was based on the idea that these are countries that don't have records of their people that are accurate and are hotbeds for terrorism so he picked the six most egregious nations and he implemented a ban until they could provide better information so that the terrorists weren't simply hopping on a plane coming here on a tourist visa and then blow things up.

Epic Games Puts Down Another $20M in Fortnite Prize Pools

"Certainly been an interesting year for epic games the developer of faith and its continued pushing the game into new territories, especially when it comes to interactive media and branding but they're also taking on Apple in an ongoing lawsuit. Apparently that lawsuit has really threaten the company's bottom line too bad though as yesterday epic announced another twenty million dollars would be put down for fortnite tournaments back in 2018 for the 2019 and 2020 Sears epic kok to put down 100 million dollars in total prizes on fortnite Esports events, and they came through they gave out a hundred million dollars over the last two years. The biggest paychecks came out of the former World Cup, which South forty million dollars awarded between the qualifiers and the main event many other events put up a couple of million here a couple of million. They're you know casual things in any other sport these would like a game. Massive Flagship events for epic. They were just a continuation of a huge promise. One of those events was the fortnite Champions series better known as the fmcs is the closest continuous structures. Fortnite Esports has ever had that event last year had a solid 3 million dollar prize pool yesterday. They announced the fortnite Champions series was jumping to twenty million dollars for the 2021 season off epic blog posts. They made it clear where exactly the money's going. First of all it's being more heavily weighted on winners than in the past where qualifiers would paid out pretty nicely this you gotta make the finals if you want any do here's how the twenty million dollars breaks down. The first important split is between the F and C S and yet unnamed mid season and end-of-year events. The fmcs will have twelve million dollars for its thorns. Well eight million is being held for events based off winners and qualifiers in previous f n c s events, so they're like part of the ecosystem but they're not part of the four individual Seasons wage. Brings me to the next split that twelve mil is being split among the 4f NCS Seasons leaving 3 mil per season. The seasons will happen along with the actual Seasons with the first one month beginning in late January early February. I believe don't have the date in front of me and ending in mid-march and so on and so forth through spring summer fall you guys you guys are seasons work. The final split is across seven different regions. And this is where it gets a little bit more confusing. Those seven regions are Europe Brazil Oceania the wage East Asia and then n a but it's split into two regions. Each one is not weighted equally either Europe has one point three million dedicated specifically to it the highest of any prize pool sneeze to Regions combined finish at just under 1. Mil Sil is next with three hundred grand then Asia with a hundred and fifty Grand Middle East with 120 and Oceania with ninety. It's both a bath. Viewership as well as a catering to where the best players are that make up for that

Avon Rebrands Amid a Surge in Reps

"Month brought big changes to a beloved brand avon. I made a name for itself by offering housewives away to earn independent income by selling skin-care perfume and cosmetics from home but the iconic american company is no longer an independent corporation or based in america the household name cosmetics company is now to companies owned by two different international corporations south korean consumer products giant elgin household and health healthcare which bought avon's north american business and brazil's largest cosmetic company nature cosmetic os which bought the majority of the company in a deal that closed this month. Lg is also a significant investor in the net. Sure deal. it's another end of an era story which has been a familiar. Refrain of late for nearly a century and a half. Avon's presence has been a constant in the beauty sector. Now you'll say lights from the beginning. Avon was a trendsetter decades. Before american women had the right to vote avon founder. David h mcconnell gave them a chance to earn an independent living. Mcconnell was a traveling book salesman who offered perfume to his customers. As a perk. The perfume was so popular that he soon created his own product line in the late eighteen hundreds. He recruited women. He met during his book selling days. As the first quote avon ladies in the century that followed the company became a direct selling amazon with more than six million home-based representatives at its peak. But the beauty behemoth suffered an ugly fall in more recent years value plummeted from its peak of twenty billion dollars. The company struggled to keep pace with changing consumer tastes one forbes. Report blames the company's decline on a failure to adapt to the changing role of women in the workplace. An ill conceived plan to crack the retail sector in stores like sears in jc penney after well known ceo andrea junks. Ouster in twenty eleven one citigroup analysts said quote. You guys are so totally screwed up in. So many ways that change has to be radical a report in fortune recount. The company also failed to anticipate new competition. Both from companies like amazon and from upstarts like rodin and fields. That's the skin care. Brand behind the wildly popular. Acne treatment proactiv rodin and fields was purchased by estee lauder three years later and converted into a direct selling company. The brand now grosses more than a billion dollars a year. Largely because tech savvy. Soccer moms sell the lotions and serums to their pows by a social media but avon may win the beauty competition and the end. Direct sailings appeal has faded in the us. But it's still a popular concept in many other countries and the new international focus means avon can better capitalize on hot markets like the uk where pandemic job losses led to a one hundred percent surge in new rep sign ups last year and of course avon will still be doing business in its country of origin. So if you need glimmer sticks or skin so soft well fear not. They're still just a socially distanced. Quarter away

I thought it was extraordinarily clever at the time but then he acknowledges that it did pose some security Risks in hostile zones. If you got these agrarian folks Used TO DRESSING CERTAIN WAY. All of a sudden rockin cowboy boots and denim jackets agreed and add to this the fact that if we think about it from a spycraft angle if all of those guys are wearing the same snazzy red brass buttoned vest than it starts to look very much like a uniform which is not not a good look in this situation absolutely.

Don't tell them about my background in politics as a political operative or anything like that. Just keep going on about. The funding wasn't going to okay. That's guys you can come get caught up on what is happening without feeling the life drain out of your soul at the daily Zeitgeist. You find us on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Or WHEREVER FINE. Podcasts are given away for free we feel wilmore thing to add That might I don't know I. I think it's just something to think about as everybody is still going through the lockdown. Which is that the sears catalog had one other use that was pretty common back in the day but was not officially condoned by sears roebuck. Themselves and it's this Apparently sears catalog makes for great toilet paper. Yeah I think it was. You know not like something to do with the quality of the paper that it was printed on more than the fact There'd be a new one that would come out every month and you have the old one so you could just hear the pages out and put it in a little been in your outhouse or whatever and then they go. You don't have to spend money on. I don't know what was the toilet paper market like back. Then I mean obviously I don't know what's the history of mass produced toilet paper. I wanted a greater you. You hear about things. Like a corn cobs. Which is I don't understand. I guess because it's textured may again. We're getting a little. I don't want to gross here. I guess you know it you know guys. I'm discussing myself even thinking about it again. Let's just picture how you'd function of using a corncob would be An apparently sometimes they were tied to the outhouse with a string implying that they were supposed to be reused. So I would say that the sears catalog page is definitely a good alternative to that. But you remind me and I'll do the same to you Ben. I think we should look into the history of mass produced toilet tissue yet. It's one of the. It's one of those industries that hasn't left the United States. Which is why. We're not actually going to run out of toilet papers nation. Weirdest thing here about the sears roebuck catalog. And it's dare I say commodious use for households across America was that people actually objected to the quality of the catalog improving because back in the day it was black and white paper but when they started printing color pictures they had to use a different kind of paper stock and they got like hate mail about it. Oh yeah that'll chafe your your your you know your area. I mean it wouldn't be super comfortable using this the newsprint but newsprint is a softer paper. And the glossy stuff. You can't even really crinkle that upper anyway. We have a lot of friction. It's still better than a CORNCOB. I guess is is our moral for today that's R. Takeaway better than workup Ben. I don't know if it's just me and where my mind right now but I heard that as Corncob. Yes you grow a little loopy but I will tell you Ben. We're not being sponsored by them but we were in the past really happy. We got our Toshiba days back when we did. Because there was a period I could not find toilet paper and I ran out entirely and with the Tissue Day. You just need one little square. Just a little DAB you know. And then you're clean as a whistle so highly recommend you guys get one. It's a great way to conserve your toilet paper and stay fresh and clean even during quarantine times. Yup Yup you could also get on the mailing list for the Ikea Catalogue if you if you're not if you're not too proud in the restroom but you know this episode is on the shorter side but it's such an interesting story and touches on so many things were going to explore in the future.

Homebrew kind of emulator thing. a book that That I love called around the world in eighty trees or something like that And then I've also I'm thinking of like the weirdest stuff I've ordered magnetic strips for various non sketchy reasons stuff like that You know we should ask folks you listening along at home. What are some of the weird things you've been ordering online and What's the weirdest thing you've ever ordered in the past? Also maybe why are we asking about online ordering there's a reason it's it is in fact a sequitur and it's not a non sequitur Because you know we take for granted how with the click of a mouse. We can literally get everything from magnetic strips too guitar strings to toilet seats But back in the day this was a revolutionary idea and of course there was no such thing as the Internet so it had to use this thing. We used to use Called paper where you read like words that were printed on it accompanied by vibrant illustrations that sort of created this kind of culture of The American dream in this aspirational notion of you. Know keeping up with the Joneses and all that having to have the things that were depicted in the pages of the sears catalog. Yes there we have it the sears catalog now longtime listeners fellow ridiculous stories you may remember earlier when the three of US dove into the strange story of our office building which was once. A itself a sears. A sears played a huge role in American culture. And I like the point you made about the American dream aspect people are kind of yet thereby pants or even in some cases true story houses. But really they're sort of purchasing a share of this ideal. You know and sears. In its catalog changed the world it's the predecessor of online ordering and we can only imagine without ourselves being neurologists that when people ordered stuff from a sears catalog. They also got that same rush of feel good chemicals and it became like this this bedrock of American commerce. You know. It's it's weird because we talked about this in a previous episode. These days a lot of us think of sears. As kind of like a cautionary tale about the woes of brick and mortar stores and retail in general it filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy. And it's often now kind of portrayed as like this capitalist wasteland or something you know you walk into a sears in its abandoned but like you said no at one time this publication the sears catalog was like might as well have been a bestselling book. Yes it's true. New York Times has a fabulous article about the history of sears. Leading up to this chapter eleven bankruptcy. You mentioned And makes a really good point of how many not only brands it was responsible for launching on elevating ones that have far outlasted The sears brand In terms of still being kind of relevant but also authors and artists creating this platform where you know these creatives were able to thrive in a medium where their work was reaching millions and millions of people? Because the sears catalog was a must must have item. Everyone wanted to even. If you couldn't afford the things that were in it. You have the catalog. It was sort of like you know browsing window shopping. You know from your home in Rural America. We talked about that in the sears catalog episode about how popular it was in rural America. Even if folks weren't buying the stuff inside of him but Folks like Edgar Rice burroughs. Who wrote the Tarzan books was a copywriter and Lauren Bacall was a model for the sears. Catalog and the list goes on. I think of some of the images the kind of illustrative Sort of Norman Rockwell esque kind of images of families and stuff. And that's really what sold a lot of Americans on this notion of what the American dream really looked like And I it wasn't limited to just this kind of aspirational window. Shopping turns out. It actually played a pretty interesting part in spike crafts and the activities of the C. I. A. and this story begins with a man by the name of John Wyant. Yes the CIA.

"This is one of the big fights of the populist movement trying to infuse more and more cash into the economy, but this. This is hard to come by bespoke for farmers who really settle their accounts once a year. So offering things on credit is essential to get access to rural Americans who were so dependent on credit, especially in the south where we have many sharecroppers, many tenant farmers who were dependent on one store in their area for all their needs. And that store relied on credit. I wanted you talking about the south, and especially in this time period was the catalog available to any shopper black or white. Well, this is one of the interesting curious things about the Sears catalog, and it's radical almost radical history that for southerners, especially black southerners, the catalog was away to evade the control of the general store, which we think of now is this sort of like folksy romantic place. But actually was a site of a lot of control the store owner there who often was in cahoots with the local landowner he may rent from was a agent of white supremacy, and so black farmers couldn't by the same clothes as white farmers. Black farmers couldn't by the same food as white farmers as they wanted to create a very visible distinction between white and black people in the south. But all of that is undone when you have access to a catalog, right it enables black farmers to just order nicer clothes, even than the white farmers. Could get at the country store. And so this is pretty amazing for black southerners. And of course, there is a massive reaction against it. I was gonna say was Whitey pissed Whitey did not like it. So there were mass burnings of these catalogs in the streets. Low organized by local store owners there were contests who could bring in the most catalogs to be destroyed. And they framed it as we don't want these outsiders coming in and destroying our way of life. But of course, that way of life was not so great if you were a black farmer. It's funny to think of Sears as a radical American retail company because I think when most people think Sears think about like that fuddy-duddy store at the mall, but no one goes to anymore. Exactly. And you know, what's interesting also is that they weren't self-consciously racial radicals. They were just trying to. Make some money and black consumers are part of that money. And you can't tell the race of someone looking at their name on a slip of paper asking for credit. So there's no way they could actually regulate that even if they had wanted to which they didn't. But just to illustrate the extreme lengths that white people were committed to white supremacy. There were all kinds of rumors circulating that Richard Sears was black that alva- Roebuck was black and they had to actually show pictures of themselves to prove that they were not. And this was meant to get white customers to stop buying from Sears and Roebuck. Now, the interesting thing there is that rumor still persists, but it's been flipped on its head..

"Car fixed. You could get your whole damn house there. I mean, a real house maturing about a portable trailer something real house by rooms comes kit for over a century. Sears was a brand that meant something. It was part of America's identity, but all good things must come to an end. And the end of Sears has not been pretty so in Sears filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy protection in October. There was significant uncertainty about what would happen to the company in the future. Whether there would be any future at all. And so there was thousands of tens of thousands of employees whose jobs were at risk. There were hundreds of. Stores still although Sears is much smaller than it used to be an so they're major stakes to be had in deciding the fate of Sears in so many people's livelihood. Still depended on and many people still shop there. Nathan Bomi is a business reporter at USA today. He's been sitting in Sears bankruptcy court on one side. You had the creditors of Sears. We're talking about the major mall owners like Simon property group that don't want Sears around anymore. They want the space in their malls to be able to lease out to other people. And then also the pension creditors, which basically amounts to the United States government, which has to step in cover. The shortfall in the pension funds for Sears those creditors all wanted to yours to go away because they felt like they could make more money if Sears was dead than if they were alive, and then on the other side you have Eddie Lampert. Eddie Lampert is very very deep in the Sears trade at this point. This was a guy who people were putting into the category of Warren Buffett Lampard is positive that just having a lot of money doesn't mean you have any colleges or skill brilliant confident cocky almost of success early on a billionaire. In fact, I would submit he had no intent to run this company in any way other than to pockets. Who's Eddie Lambert's Eddie Lampert is their unique character he is a chairman and longtime investor in Sears actually, also happens to be former CEO and the largest shareholder. And you know, he's comes from all street. He comes from an investment background kind of went out on his own decades ago and started to make a lot of money through investments like autozone. For example, Kim, a billionaire, but he also has very peculiar background unusual circumstance about fifteen years ago when he was kidnapped couple of guys basically jumped him and held him for ransom for a couple of days. And then he talked his way out of it. Because he's a rich hedge fund guy, why not kidnap them. That's exactly right. I'm not exaggerating. That's precisely what happened. And so I think that that contributed to the fact that he's a very secretive sort of quiet kind of reclusive person. He runs Sears primarily from an island in Florida where he doesn't he doesn't really leave much. It said that he doesn't even go to the stores, very. Often doesn't go to the Sears headquarters for often. He does a lot of video conferences from his his mansion basically in Thawra. And so you know, is that the best way to run a retailer. I think a lot of critics would say no at the end of this case, though, the end of this bankruptcy. He was the last person standing who was willing to give Sears another chance. It sounds like it'd be easy to paint Eddie Lampert as a super villain here. He's he's taking overseers from his island mansion in Florida, and then, you know, watching over its bankruptcy..

"No one would give me credit. Even the Bank used in Sears was the first that gave me a credit card. So not surprisingly what I couldn't pay cash. I went to Sears to buy my stuff. They were ahead of that curve, Mark. Thank you so much for your call. Sarah halzack Sears in the credit business, extending credit to people who couldn't get it anywhere else at the time. Yes, years is actually an early pioneer in issuing credit, many decades before he was in college. And so, yeah, that's consistent to me with another one of the innovations that they brought to bear and another key tactic they had an attracting customers. And is it a? Is it an innovation though that got that got a head of Sears? I mean, I'm thinking other companies that weren't necessarily in finance to begin with but expanded into into the finance world, and that became more of a. Of a burden than a profit center. Did that ever happen if Sears? I don't think so. To my knowledge, I don't think there was a point where it having its own. It's retail, credit card. Business was a problem. As we discussed earlier the fact that sort of branched away from its core business by having these other kind of financial service oriented businesses was troublesome. But within the retail empire, I think it's been okay. The Vicky Howard couple of minutes that we have here. I mean, you're looking at the store through historical ones, but I wonder when you look forward, what do you see is what is the story of Sears bankruptcy telling you about what the future of retail might be? Well, I'm hoping that Dave is right in the caller that works for the service technician of firm is right in the firm does go full circle or is able to survive. But I do fear that with these additional closures, you know that you know it's going to have a terrible impact on the on workers at Sears. But also I think that the shopping malls that depend on these anchors, our will also suffer. And so people who are less served by by shopping malls and have to rely on these older older malls that might have a JC Penney which has also had lots of troubles or Sears anchoring them that they that they will pus face the closure of their shopping mall and have difficulty finding a place to go shop and we'll turn more and more online. There's we'll be some sort of rolling affect this. So Sarah halzack isn't that interesting? Because you know here we are talking about online retail in its growth and Sears innovation in the early twenty in mid twentieth century. But you know Amazon, the current major disruptor in retail, they're actually pushing into brick and mortar stores. Now, yes, I think we see this convergence where the old guys are trying to learn new tricks in the new guys are trying to learn old tricks. And so I think the, yes, Amazon, the clearest flashiest example of this was when it spent thirteen point, four billion dollars to acquire whole foods effectively. A major wager on the fact that people are going to be wanting to buy their groceries in physical stores for quite long time. But we see other efforts from Amazon in the physical retail space to one is their Amazon bookstores. Another is this concept called Amazon go, which is basically a cashier less convenient store. So the story relies on a web of.

"Ericans, Vicky Howard. So did you did you see that same radical sensibility in in Sears with its catalogue and African American shoppers? Well, I'm thinking about the era of the the modern civil rights movement in the nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties. When Sears was along with other department stores in the south, and also drugstores were boycotted in part of the sit in movement. I'm so I think that I, I agree with Louis about the potential for that consumers to use the catalog to resist white supremacy. And I think like read that that happened, but I think it's important to distinguish between what the firm itself with trying to do, and they were they were own long on fitting into the corporate structures of the time and in the south Sears discriminated against African Americans in its department stores. So when it went as soon as it had stores. I am lunch counters and things like that. I, it was just discriminate against African American consumers as well as a hiring white workers. And it was a paean of boycotts just as we're other businesses. So I think from the consumer point of view, I think they could make what they wanted out of these catalogs and use them. But the firm itself shouldn't be held up as and I don't think that's what loses doing. But I think the firm itself should be remembered for all of the things that did and didn't do. Right. So very interesting point. Vicki said, reminding us as tears. Absolutely very much company of its time as well. I mean, Louis, did you want to respond to that completely agree? I think that they know I think Vicki and I would agree on this and I think most people would that Sears company of its time and it moves through time and as it did, it's it's a very different situation to have a brick and mortar store in a majority white neighborhood, or you know, trying to appeal to that white shopper than to have a catalog, which you know and you. You can see the shift. It moves into being middle America rather than you know the early eighteen ninety s the in the in the office, the the catalogue, you could write to it in Swedish, or German, or any other language. They were open to come one come all. So I think it's it's important to realize that there is not one Sears, but along story of American retail in America, so fascinating because going back to the catalog and how Sears in that case reached out to African American customers, particularly in the south..

"Well, that's pretty speedy disruption to and. That's why I think Sears occupies such an important place in retailing history and commerce secretary. So we'll talk more about the the effects of online retail a little later in the program, but we got callers who want to join us because I mean, most Americans have interacted with the Sears or shop to the Sears, perhaps at least once in their lives. So lots of thoughts and memories here. Let's go to Deborah who's calling from Watertown, Connecticut, debris, you're on the air. Yes, making great show. I am. I have worked for two great American institutions Sears and prudential and prudential continue to thrive in series of courses not. I started admiring fears when I was a kid during the Vietnam war. My father was a military surgeon stationed in Japan. So we ordered everything that we needed. I would pour over it for hours. I think Sears has been ossified in heading for trouble for a long time. I worked with years in the nineteen seventies when I was in high school and housewares the guy I worked for whose name was John man. I hope his kids here this. He was the top housewares manager in the entire country. He was very innovative, very successful, very aggressive. He he was a bear about knowing the merchandise, send me on spying missions to see what other stores were charging. So he could set prices and sales based on that information. He. Had me cooking chicken and ham inside the store, grilling it so that the smell would attract customers who might not be thinking about. I love this. He sounds like a really creative manager. He was totally like that. And he never ever ever got promoted beyond manager of one department in one store because he didn't have a high. I mean, he had a high school degree, but nothing beyond that and you know, and I especially remember just one story that I'd love to share from those days about an old style manager here. I was sixteen years old and I was on the phone with a customer who wanted to order replacement parts for his Webber grill, which was not hard, but he was really, really difficult and really unhappy and hard to help while it turned out that the reason he was so unhappy was that his wife had left him and she had taken the parts, but not the grill and and I. And I didn't. I couldn't handle him. And I finally said to him, excuse me. So it's not my fault that your wife left you and I hung up on it and he called the store manager and demanded that are before and the store manager who we never saw on the floor who was, you know, young man, college educated were suit, came down to, you know, get my head on a platter and John stuck up for me. He said she shouldn't have done it. She's young. It's her first job. She's a good worker. And then he sat me down and he gave me, you know, the customer's always right lecture, but he stuck up for me. We'll Debra, thank you so much for your call and for your memories there and, and really wonderful example about perhaps how more qualified people at Sears weren't at least in this case work getting promoted. Thank you. Deborah, let's go quickly to Chris who's calling from state college, Pennsylvania, Chris, you're on the air. Hi, great program. One thing not just seriously lot of these big legacy corporations is the role of the Bolter capitalists that come in, you know, the hedge funds by these corporations, and then. Leverage to the hilt pay themselves back for the purchase price and then scrip all the assets Salamov you like Sears has done with craftsmen at Kenmore and all the brand names. And then once they pocket all the cash, but now they're just going through bankruptcy court, unload the empty shell of the corporation and all the debt on somebody else..

She is a business and cultural historian and a professor at the university of Essex author of from main street to mall, the rise and fall of the American department store, and she joins us today from Colchester England, Vicky. Howard welcome to on point. Thank you so step back in time with us a little bit. I mean, some of the ads we've been hearing have been coming from the nineteen eighties, but in its heyday. How important was Sears? How influential was Sears in how Americans shopped. Well, I think in terms of its place in the departments during distri, you know, it was one of the first true department store chains, and it was a, you know, a dominant retailer in the suburban shopping mall explosion after World War Two. So it anchored all of the new retail developments that sprung up across the country in the fifties and sixties. And so in the middle of the twentieth century, it was a a very dominant retailer not just in terms of its catalog, but also in terms of its place in the shopping mall, which became the v. place to shop after after World War Two. And earlier of course it was intro, introduce consumer culture to rural areas in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century before it was a department store on which it took that form in the mid nineteen twenty s so it really belongs. Has a portent place in American consumer culture. Yeah. So when we come back from the break, I wanna talk more about that because at the top of the hour, we talked about Sears sort of being the Amazon of its day being a retail disruptor in terms of how it changed Americans shopping habits in in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth centuries, you just talked about. So let's definitely explore more of that. When we come back, we're talking this hour about Sears declaring bankruptcy did so on Monday. It was once the most, the largest retailer, one of the largest employers in all of the United States. Do you shop at Sears? Did you shop at Sears? What do you see in its declaring bankruptcy?

"For that customer that's not shopping at Sears anymore. So Sears was struggling for a while, seven years of losses and even some of its closest competitors. As you mentioned, Macy's n. j. c. Penney what does the fall of Sears mean for their future? You know, we'll penny is very much up in the air. They are struggling. They just they just brought on a new CEO so we'll see how she does, but you know, they've. Cycled through several leaders who have not been able to turn that business around. They're not as weakest Sears. But you know if things don't improve for them, they could be not far behind in a few years and Macy's has struggled to, but they've made a lot of investments in their business and they, they seem to be turning a corner this year. We'll we'll see how that plays out with them. And in your piece, you also talk about companies that have been able to emerge from bankruptcy, although in different ways or smaller ways like PayLess shoe source. And on the other hand, we have companies like toys r. us that seem to be having a tougher time. What can you tell us about the prospects for a reemergence of Sears? You know, a lot of retailers go into bankruptcy thinking they can restructure only to find out that they, you know, it's a death knell for them, and Sears is obviously hoping it can come out smaller and more nimble, but but it raises questions if they do come out with just three hundred stores will have the scale and the buying power to really compete. I'm not really sure what their place in the. World will be when you have WalMart and target and Home Depot with hundreds and thousands of stores. And then you know a very, very scaled-down Sears what is their proposition? And of course, in addition to all those brick and mortar retailers that you mention, obviously the rise of e commerce and the continued dominance of Amazon CEO CEO Eddie Lampert. I think he really saw early on how ecommerce which change retailing and and his hope was that he could turn Sears fast enough to meet those changes. You know, he clearly was not able to do that, but you know, Amazon is a once in a generation company and they have put everybody else on the defensive trying to compete with them. So that continues to be a big challenge. And you mentioned the holiday season a little bit earlier. The Wall Street Journal has been reporting a lot on how the fall of Toys R Us and other big retailers changes the holiday shopping season. How about retailers like Sears? I mean, by the end of this year, we could potentially just have a couple hundred of them. Left. I mean, Sears still has a pretty dominant share in things like tools and appliances. So people are going to, you know, may not be as willing to buy their appliances at Sears because you know who knows about that warranty and we'll series be around in a year. So I think a lot of that market share is going to be up for grabs in apparel and some other areas. You know, I think Sears just looms much larger in the American magic nation than it does as a business because it's been shrinking now for a long, long time that's Wall Street Journal reporter, Suzanne cap, ner joining us in our studio to talk about Sears.
