I'm Dan Schwartzman, that's your Bloomberg News and World Sports Update, Brian. All right, thanks very much, Dan. The time here is about 17 minutes before the top of the hour. Joining us is Arielle Cohen, Fellow Senior at Atlantic Council to discuss these latest developments in Russia. So Professor, a lot of questions here. Let me be blunt in the first one. To what extent, if any, does this weaken Vladimir Putin? Absolutely, it weakens Putin, it weakens the secret police state that he was careful of building for 23 years and the regime, as a friend of mine in the U .S. government today told me, is stable but brittle. In other words, it can just collapse one day as the Soviet Union collapsed, although it the took Soviet Union much longer to collapse. We saw a challenge that was supported by the force of arms. We did not see anything like for that 30 years when Boris Yeltsin sent tanks to shoot up the rebel supreme Soviet, the rebel parliament that also was shooting at Putin. That is yet to come. the mercenaries and the Russian troops kind of fell by the side and allowed them get to pretty close to Moscow. So what was going on there because I know that the prosecution of the war Ukraine in went on sort of as usual. So this creates a very interesting scenario. Indeed. And what we know is that the Putin chef, who became much more than a chef, he became Frankenstein's monster created that for Putin himself. Remember, Prigozhin was the owner of the Wagner private military company of the St. Petersburg troll farm of gold and uranium mines in Africa, where the Wagner group is very active. So Prigozhin said he had 25 ,000 soldiers. He probably had less and spread they were on one freeway all the way from Rostov in the south to the outskirts of Moscow. 850 kilometers, about 570 kilometers as the crow flies. What does it mean? It means that the van that Prigozhin had available to store Moscow was quite limited. And he understood that Putin will throw everything in the kitchen sink at him near Moscow if he tries to storm. The other thing that was interesting to me is a of lot senior Russian leaders did not come out and denounce Prigozhin, but at the same time did not stand with Prigozhin against Putin. Putin managed this crisis quite well, but the next challenger will appear, mark my words, and then it can get really, really ugly for Vladimir Putin. So, in other words, he was a kind of a stalking horse, to put it that way. But, Ariel, it does leave Vladimir Putin exposed. It leaves him perhaps vulnerable as well. There's only one clear winner and that must surely be in the context of the liberal politic of Vladimir Zelensky. Look, Ukraine is trying now to punch through the Russian fields and very echelon defenses in the south. The Russians flooded the lower end of the Dnieper River to make it more difficult for Ukrainians to breach the Dnieper. So, the Ukrainian offensive so far is, I wouldn't say sputtering, but it's going very, very hard. We will see if the Ukrainians manage to bring a massive force to punch through the Russian lines and possibly cut through that Russian corridor towards Crimea. The Ukrainians are already starting fingers pointing at us, at the west, by saying there's not enough Western ammo, military supplies and support. We will see. This is a very, very touchy and difficult situation for Ukrainians. It puts China in an interesting position. We've been looking through some of the state press and some of the papers like the Global Times to get their take. And they seem to be pushing a lot. I mean, I think you have to say that officially China responded in a quite appropriate and sort of stable way, saying that this is Russia's internal affair and that Russia has the right to maintain national stability. But the papers get a little bit more aggressive in talking about how this actually strengthens Vladimir Putin. So let's back up to how China could and should respond. Your thoughts. If you remember, just before the war, Putin and Xi met in Beijing for the Olympics and said they're going to change the world. They're going to take on the world. And so far, Chairman Xi was very cautious. He gave a lot of verbal support for Putin. He floated a very half -baked Chinese peace plan. However, he did not visit Zelensky, he did not visit Ukraine, and he is not supplying Putin with ammo despite Russian pleas. So China is being very cautious. And as I put it, China wins no matter what. If Russia gets weaker, it's falling into China's gravitational pull, kind of like a planet falls into a massive black hole. But if Russia wins, it creates a huge problem for the United States and Europe. It distracts the U .S. from possible engagement in East Asia in the case balloon goes up over Taiwan issue. Right, so the thing is, you're suggesting also that, mark your words, I think you said that somebody else is going to follow in terms of a challenging Vladimir Putin. And I think what you said earlier about some of the senior people, very quickly here, not coming in to support him, perhaps so speaks volumes. They did not support Gaussian, but they also did not come out and support, they did not express their opposition to precautions. So they were hedging their bets. They did not understand what was going on. Putin ran out of Moscow. So it was, it was looking bad for Putin for a while. We've got to go. Ariel, thank you so much.

"And more. The organization was founded as the Merging Markets Private Equity Association by the IFC of the World Bank over 20 years ago. So it was founded by the first LPs in funds in emerging markets and grew to some prominence at the period of time that there was this idea that emerging markets was going to be an asset class in and of itself, that was going to be younger demographics, faster growth, that would be a rising tide that would lift all boats and grew to some significant size. I joined in 2019 as CEO and to really reposition the organization for the future to reflect what's going on in the world today. The terminology emerging markets is 40 years out of date. It's 40 years old. It's just completely outdated. China is the world's second largest economy. So many of the opportunities and so much capital flows from these places in the world. So we are now the Global Private Capital Association. The regions that we cover are Asia, Latin America, Africa, Central and Eastern Europe and the Middle East. But our board includes, for example, Bill Ford of General Atlantic, one of the world's largest private equity firms, as you mentioned KKR, others are members. We have, for example, Temasek, the Singapore sovereign fund, their chief investment officer. That's fascinating. So essentially it was, the organization was started to kind of shepherd growth through private equity in these markets. Exactly. And the reposition... So non -profit, is that wrong? We are So we are the same structure as a national venture capital association in the US or a private equity council which indeed are lobby groups. The beauty, and this is why we use the word independent, is that because we cover all of these markets, we're not there to lobby on behalf of lower tax rates for or differential regulatory treatment for our members. We're really there to evangelize capital and educate on the opportunities across global markets. And the last thing I'll say is we are not a US lobby group. We are truly a global organization. Again our board includes the leading fund managers from India, Africa, Latin America, both global firms and local firms. So where does your funding come from? Membership dues. So over 300 member firms pay dues to be members of the organization. We have a very dynamic research platform. I can throw some data off the top of my head in terms of fundraising and trends and things like private equity. But what I'm getting is that the World Bank said we We need need to shepherd growth through this mechanism, private equity, and a good way to do that is put together an organization to support to support it. So the IFC is the International Finance Corporation and they were limited partners in funds. So they actually put money into funds. And there's a whole universe of development finance institutions, including the U .S. DFC, which is what the U .S. uses to compete with China, frankly, around the world putting money into funds. So it really it's more commercial than sort of what we're describing. But we are a nonprofit organization, U .S. DFC, the Development Finance Corporation. OK, so so if you had to say your top priority in your organization, number one, just one, what is it? Wow, that's tough. There's kind of twins, so I may cheat. OK. One is to just re -educate the world on opportunities the and the realities and the risks of investing in these markets. And the second would be to influence capital towards greater long -term, inclusive growth and environmental sustainability. Private capital. Yes, private capital. I am obsessed. Matt, we're both obsessed. And I feel like I keep saying this last couple of times. I've been at Milken. We've done broadcasts. Doesn't seem like anybody cares about the public markets. It's all about private the markets, private credit, private equity. But those people, you're hanging around with the wrong people if you want to talk public markets. Well, yes, yes. But I mean, tell us about from your perspective, because I think there's some business in terms of the private capital world, especially as we see rates going up, that there doesn't feel like there's as much transparency and that that could be problematic. Interesting. Well, okay, great. Um, I mean, absolutely. The scale of capital is remarkable. And this is sort of private capital, private capital, exactly. For example, last year alone, 1 .3 trillion, right? You know, it's 1 .2 1 .3. But critically, that's just what's raised by fund managers. You've got to throw in there all the Canadian pension plans. By the way, CPB is also on our board of directors as is Future Fund from Australia. It's trillions and trillions of dollars of liquidity. It's just so that the scale of money that is available, you've got all the Chinese billionaires, you've got family offices, you know, there's so much everybody wants in right now, because the thing is, there's also so much talk of the opportunity in private credit. It's become kind of the darling of really investors from retail up now. Right. Well, I was speaking across all private capital strategies in private equity, venture capital, infrastructure, real assets. So there's a lot in there. What's really hot right now? Well, you're mentioning private credit, which absolutely is a huge driver. So if I had to say a strategy that's going really quickly, I'd say private credit, and there was $14 billion in private credit fundraising last year. KKR had a big Asia private credit fund. Apollo had a big private credit fund. Big manager in India is raising $1 .6 billion for their private credit fund just focused on India. I would highlight two other big drivers, particularly in our markets. Climate and anything sustainability is a huge driver. Seriously, absolutely different from the ESG phenomenon. Absolutely, absolutely huge is a huge driver, and I would make this critical distinction. ESG is kind of like working with terminology like markets. emerging It can mean anything, right? What is ESG? What is impact? I mean, the definitions really are there. a There's lot of regulation. Which is why it's kind of going through a wreck anyway. You make them up yourself, basically. But particularly, it's funny when you say transparency. I believe that there's actually a opportunity greater for transparency and private capital strategies, because you can see what's in portfolios. You can go to the portfolio company level. Not every portfolio. Well, I guess I would say in the markets that we represent, Okay. Going in. But if you're a pension fund, you can look at it, right? Yeah, I mean, I'm speaking specifically to markets the that we're in. Okay. And in the markets that we're in governance and transparency and, going in and cleaning up that type of stuff from the outset. And there's so much leverage. So I don't know when you're thinking from a risk perspective, you're thinking about the amount of leverage that's been put on. Like if KKR Apollo has a fund, don't I necessarily know everything that's in it. You know, here's another driver I would point out. Yeah. Carol Carol I and both have been grappling with trying to value the entire size of the private credit market, for example, and that data is difficult for us. Private credit is going to be a much less transparent than private equity. Correct. Yes. Because in private equity, you're talking about typically investments, but private credit is absolutely less transparent. But private equity, if you're getting into private firms, I guess there's announcements, there has to be. Yeah, the deal portfolio is on the website. I Right. would And make another point, which is one of the things that I find really exciting about what I do in the opportunity, the way the industry is changing just in the space of the last five years, the level of accountability and the shift in thinking in private capital globally is remarkable. You look at the examples of founders being pushed out because of even a hint of impropriety. There is so much more focus on long -term reputation because let's face it, you know, one reputationally bad step is, you know, has a major impact. Look at Crispin O 'Day. Exactly. That was Kate Ambrose, CEO of the Global Private Capital Association with me and Matt Miller.

And thank you for listening. Joining us now. Ted Harvey. He was a former Colorado state senator. Republican there and also, uh, Chairman of the Committee to defeat President Biden. And welcome in Ted, Thanks so much for being with me. Good morning. Thank you for having me, boy. I tell you, we got ourselves a bit of a mess these days, don't we? Where do we start with this foggy Joe Biden? Why don't we start with what's happening right now? With Secretary State Antony Blinken. I'm the hot seat over the withdrawal from Afghanistan appalling to me that he calls it one of the most successful airlifts in the history. And just says This was just a great effort by the United States and we carried it off so well. And the refugees that are being brought to this country are being fully vetted. No worries here. Nothing to look just move along. Your thoughts on what's happening with the secretary of state and this whole mess with Afghanistan. They're literally looking in the eyes of the American people can lying directly in their face and to Congress. Um, they we all everybody in the world realizes that this was the greatest military disaster in American history. Yet the leadership of this administration from the Secretary of defense to the secretary of state to the Joint Chiefs of Staff to the president, the United States is trying to gaslight every one of us. Us What happened actually didn't happen. Um, the president two weeks before the fall of Kamal said that there is no way that Afghanistan will turn into what happened in Saigon when we were lifting Um, but embassy employees off of the roof of the embassy by helicopter yet that's exactly what happened. And this administration said that the ball would not fall for probably two or three weeks yet. It took two days and we have I don't I will never believe this administration when they say there's only 100 citizens there that can't get out. There's thousands of us citizens there that can't get out and this administration abandoned them literally pulled the military out of country before we got our foreign service officers out of the embassy and out of the country and okay, that was my next question. You know, you're not going to see any reports on the television of the Mass liberal media is not going to talk about who is still left there and you All right. I don't believe it either. To me. It sounds like they just walking away. Spinning it into well, those people that want to, you know, stay there, staying there, and some reduced dual citizenships. Nothing to worry about here. We got everybody out. I don't buy that either. Do do we have any idea how many are still there? And are we doing anything as the United States to still help get those people out? The fact that we have retired, Uh um Special forces officers going in there on their own, Whether it is Army or the seals or whoever and going there and getting people out and the State Department is trying to stop them from doing that. That speaks volumes of the where this administration is, They don't want The truth to come out about what context failures they were and in planning this whole process of pulling out of the country. I think the majority of Americans wanted us to get out of Afghanistan. We should have 10 years ago, but the way this administration did it not only brought shame to Our military and our foreign service officers on the crowd, but it brought shame to our entire country that's going to have lasting reverberating impact for decades to come. Um and you'll you'll have to question why anybody would work side by side with us. In any foreign engagement if they think we're just going to abandon them and leave them, and that's not just for the Afghanis. That's for all of our allies that went in there and helped us that are still there on the ground today, right, Get out. Ted, Let's switch gears. You want to talk about foggy Joe Biden seems more and more now it's happening more frequently when he gets out there and goes ad libbing off the prompter. He just is scattered in his thoughts and can't stay on track and is all over the place and that you saw it The other day, the White House abruptly cut the feed to Biden's briefing on the wildfires with the federal and state officials there. If the White House is White House is pulling the plug. On the president's microphone when he's out and about I mean, this is a clear sign. This guy really doesn't need to be leading the United States of America. Well, there's a reason why you didn't see him at any of the major 9 11 ceremony, um, that they went to New York. But, yeah, he didn't speak. They couldn't trust him to go to a microphone and speak on probably one of the most solemn memorials of of our country, and they had to send out George Bush to go around, essentially speak on behalf of the left. Um, it's a attack. Trump supporters, essentially because the this president can't get up there and speak on one of the most solemn days in our nation's history. Um, it is embarrassing and it is dangerous, and that's one of the main reasons why we are failing everywhere, not just Afghanistan that's failing on our Southern borders. It's failing on our economy. It's failing on uniting our country and moving forward. Um, this president doesn't have the ability to do that. And you know, it really makes you wonder who is in charge of the Democratic Party and running the show here. Clearly, Joe Biden is a prop and expendable, Say with Kamala Harris. Clearly not qualified for the position. She's in, let alone taking over for Biden. If, in fact he does leave when you see the White House press secretary Jen Psaki, admitting during an interview that Biden is often advised by her staff, not to take questions. To me. Could you imagine President Trump being told by his staff not to take questions or discuss anything with reporters or any professionals out there that want to have conversations?.
