"Different streaming services don't seem to give as much choice Tara thanks so much for joining us The hook for this if I can put it that way is the proposed merger of discovery with WarnerMedia And some objections from senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts Right So you have senator Elizabeth Warren representative David siciliani and a bunch of other Democrats in Congress calling a tension to this $43 billion deal where AT&T is trying to sell WarnerMedia to discovery and they're saying that they're concerned that this transaction is going to substantially less than competition in the entertainment industry And what they probably mean by that is specifically streaming because I think that's what most people have come to say is like the entertainment industry nowadays We don't really talk about the box office as much or cable TV It's all about these streaming apps that are trying to compete with Netflix But when they say that this deal will substantially less in competition I'm struggling to see how that's the case And that's not to argue in favor of the deal getting done or further consolidation But if you take a step back it's basic economic gospel in this country to believe that having more options greater choice is better for consumers And then what you have with the streaming TV industry are dozens and dozens of apps purporting to do similar things And yet it's costing consumers a great deal of money as this industry starts to kind of resemble the reviled cable industry And it's also costing consumers or patients as far as the subpar user experience and a lot of these apps So I think what that tells you is that at the moment the streaming market doesn't have a healthy degree of consumer choice There's instead an illusion of choice simply because there's so many providers And so allowing this deal or stopping this deal I should say isn't going to fix this bigger problem And I think that's maybe what we should be calling attention to is how do you make this market healthier for the consumer Because right now it's really heading in the direction that the cable industry was in Well I must say just from my personal experience the one thing that all these streaming services have in common is whichever one I'm on is not the one that has the program I want to get which means that I have to go sign up for another one And so I add another service So why is this so different from the way it was with basic cable or even back in the olden days broadcast What you just described is exactly the issue So we have all these different services that are purporting to do similar things except they don't really They don't compete against one another They are not substitutes for one another You can't.

How Decentralized Is DeFi?

"What's going on guys. It is wednesday july twenty eighth and today we are asking. How decentralized is decentralized finance. And why does that matter. So yesterday i did a show on three separate hearings on the hill that related in some way to digital currency that show also covered a letter sent by senator elizabeth warren to treasury secretary janet yellen in the context of her role with the financial stability oversight committee. This is hardly the first time. I've had multiple regulatory topics to cover on the same day. And that i think reflects just how much discussion of these issues is now. Happening at the highest levels of government in some ways this was an inevitable byproduct of the most recent bull run not just in the sense. That higher prices and more attention bring more scrutiny. Although that's part of it it feels inevitable in the particular composition of this bull run. It's one thing. If crypto is a silent off segment of weirdos and malcontents and internet people even if they keep getting richer and raising the value of their magic internet. Money's it's something different when all of a sudden the participants are traditional financial institutions. The concern start to magnify both from consumer protection standpoint as well as from a systemic risk standpoint if banks are allowing people to access bitcoin buying selling and holding from their accounts is there a greater consumer protection challenge if hedge funds which have historically been points of failure for the larger financial system. Suddenly start to opaquely. Load up on crypto. Does that mean a new type of systemic risk are stable coins being adopted actually a threat to the dollar system that government currently controls for regulators. These seem like reasonable questions. And thus we're seeing much much more scrutiny.

Bipartisan infrastructure. bill. I want to ask you. Have you been briefed on the contours of that agreement. And if so are you on board with it we will be having a vote tonight. That will let the senate move forward to debate the bill on the floor We've gotten enough of the contours that i think it makes sense to bring this bill to the floor but i understand bring it to the floor does not mean that all the details are worked out so i'll give you an example Just Yesterday there was still a big fight over whether they'd be enough money in it for transit And you know that something that's really important to us in massachusetts and there was a lot of pushback from republicans that money should go into Highways bought less in transit and You know i just. I can't make sense of that in a world where we are facing a climate crisis ambushed. You'll many of our transit systems are so old show As of this afternoon we are in a good place on transit A lot of money going into it. The right proportion going forward so that's one piece that we think is lock in And high will be working hard to make sure that we stay on top of it over the next couple of days before we come to a final vote but another piece broad-band when we talk about Just a general outlines right now. The whole section just is broadband So there's a lot that has to be filled in under that but it's at least a basis to begin debate on the floor of the senate so you would vote to begin that debate tonight senator. I would vote to begin the debate. Okay and then so so. The debate begins. And i know it's a complicated process. But i'm also aware and and we've talked a lot on the show here before about the linking of this bill with this larger three point five trillion dollar spending package that the president also wants. Do you anticipate that linkage will remain and will the outcome of the debate that hopefully hopefully not right the word that may begin tonight would affect that in any way as i have always described this bill. There is really just one package now. It comes in different parts and may take multiple vote. Part of it is a narrow part narrow relatively speaking that is roads and bridges and I hope Something good on broadband but the rest of it is childcare care and home and community based care it's about.

Student Loan Forgiveness: Democrats Debate How Much To Cancel

"Five million americans have student debt and president biden has promised to do something about that. He's proposed cancelling up to ten thousand dollars per borrwer. Democrats in congress are pushing for more though fifty thousand dollars per person. Here's npr's listen Joe biden has made it clear one point six trillion dollars in federal student. Debt is a problem but the question of how much of it to cancel is still on the table. Let's take a look at the plan. The president supports cancelling ten thousand dollars in debt per borrower or. Who have the lowest suit deaths are the ones who struggle the most adam. Looney is an economist. At the university of utah he says not all debt is the same borrowers who completed. A bachelor's often have higher debt burdens but are able to pay that debt back. The ones really struggling are the ones in default. When you're in default government can take your tax refund part of your paycheck when you get older. You can even lose part of your social security. Roughly eight million borrowers are in default and most of them have less than ten thousand dollars in debt. The amount that you borrow is largely dependent on how many years you will often students who drop out after a semester or a year or two just on accumulate very much dead. If you never got that degree you can't get a job to help pay off that debt. Looney argues that anything higher than ten thousand cancellation runs. The risk of awarding borrowers. Who don't need help. He points to research that shows thirty. Six percent of student debt is owned by the top twenty percent of income holders but income is different than wealth household was student debt. Tend to have the least amount of wealth. That's the value of all your assets minus debt. Now let's take a look at the plans to cancel fifty thousand dollars in student at senators elizabeth warren and chuck schumer among those behind. This idea. they say a more forgiving cancellation policy is also about racial justice. And would target gaps in wealth especially among black families. Black households are more likely to have student debt and more of it than white or latino families. The debt crisis in is dish. Proportionally impacting borrowers of color and communities of color. Black borrowers in particular ashleigh harrington the senior policy counsel at the center for responsible lending. So when we talk about cancelation we have to start their black borrowers. She says can struggle even if they get their degree. Thanks to racism. In the labor market more debt cancellation would give them a up. You have families were the color who have never been able to build wealth. They don't have intergenerational wealth fender having intergenerational deck many black and latino families missed out on ways to build wealth in the past like homeownership and job training programs due to racist policies researchers who study and talk to student. Loan borrowers say now student. Loan debt is thing. That's holding them back in a forthcoming report. The center for responsible lending black borrowers. Who would have all of their debts. Raced at fifty thousand was forgiven. Have median assets worth just seventy six thousand dollars in most cities. That's not even a house and of course there's the pandemic we are in the list of a crisis it and so we're for the place where count out. Inauguration gonna cut it regardless of the dollar figure most advocates. For cancelling say the thing that makes it so appealing is it can be done by the president through executive action without congress. President biden has long said he'd prefer to use legislation but in early february. The white house signaled it was willing to consider doing it with the flick of a pen.

And also you note in an article you wrote consumers would greatly benefited from the reins being pulled in on the consumer financial protection bureau the Cy at PB. What does it do? And what should it be doing? That's a great. That's a great question. It was independent agency under the treasury created after the financial crisis in two thousand eight part of dodd-frank what it was supposed to do is provide an extra layer of consumer protection on financial services. The ones that helped lead to the crash subprime mortgages, subprime loans and the like what it did become as a feifdom of very liberal attorneys. Several hundred attorneys were hired. It was the brainchild of Senator Elizabeth Warren, and was the first thing is that it was very very well funded over two hundred attorneys there had salaries higher than every governor in in the country which was a first red flag. But then what they started doing is employing a political agenda that they couldn't get through in congress and starting regulating industries and enforcing actions against people like who provided auto loans and small loans and other. Or financial industries, which really did not have any consequence whatsoever. Hit a financial crisis, and that's been really bad for consumers. It's been bad for access to credit for the price of credit. And they really just went off the rails. It has a new director now pointed by President Trump, Kathy crane, injure, and she's more of a sober matter of fact, efficient and reasonable administrator. She's not going to employ left wing agenda in attacking the financial services industry. Now, clearly, of course, there were problems that came out of twenty eight foremost among them, of course, the the liberal notion that everybody should own a house. We can't expect everybody to automatically be credit worthy and show the discipline necessary to do that. So we'll just simply change the rules. And and set up a lot of people for a nasty failure on purchasing a house, clearly that sort of activity should have been curbed. But that was that started with people like Barney, Frank. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. There are plenty of people who raised warning signs prior to the crash that the an agenda of giving away loans for people who could not afford them is not really helping people, and it wasn't helping the economy, and certainly when those loans were package as part of investments and derivatives yet all came everyone can think back to ten eleven years ago. Remember, just what is disaster that was and how many people had hurt. So what if we should be doing is monitoring in overseeing banking regulations? I mean, a lot of people questioned whether it actually needs to exist. Given the fact that we do have the FTC, and we have a treasury department, and we have an x t c that is that regulates that regulates banks and commercial practices..

"Wait a second to parties of both corrupt yet both in the tank for big business and here comes Benedict. Donald his third party on a businessman, and I'm here for the working, man. And I'm going to drain the swamp, and I'm gonna break this system. That's right. He hijacked all of that seething sitting there seizing through this thing. He hijacked it all and he sold a whole bunch of lies to all bunch of people and how any union guy and a union person could vote for Benedict Donald thinking, he's going to help a working people. I mean, come on President Obama had figured it out. And he said this guy's a phoney populous, but the reason in my humble opinion, the reason Benedict Donna was able to get away with it was because the Democratic Party abandoned its core. Mission which is to work for the small people the democratic party's work bay ball. We care about the small people, and they abandoned that and Benedict Donald grabbed it and shame on the Democrats. Okay. Well, it seems Democratic Party has learned its lesson by the way, the people are still seething sitting there seething through this thing. It's only been ten years people. Remember, they're really angry still, and and now we have evidence that that it's it's really what is economic populism is really starting to show itself. And it's scaring, it's scaring the Wilbur Ross class. The elitists it's scaring them because congresswoman Alexandria, oh Casio Cortes with her proposal for a seventy percent top tax rate. Right. And that seventy percent only when you get into the upper reaches ten million bucks. And now and now today Senator Elizabeth Warren full disclosure, I endorse her and I think she's the best of the candidates. But if she doesn't win I'll be happy with whoever else it is in. Uneven. Here's one of the reasons why I endorsed Senator Warren, this is straight out of the Washington Post to hear it straight out of the Washington Post Senator Elizabeth Warren democrat of Massachusetts will propose a new annual wealth tax on Americans with more than fifty million with an m in assets, according to an economist advising her on the plan as democratic leaders for increasingly aggressive solutions to the nation soaring wealth inequality, and then it goes on talk about the two economists who work at Berkeley, UC Berkeley, who revising the bottom line is Senator Warren's wealth tax, if a Democratic Congress were to be in place in an active. It would raise two point seven five trillion dollars over a ten year period from about seventy five thousand families or less than zero point one. Percent of US households. Now, that's according to the economist who advising Senator Warren and talking to the Washington Post with congresswoman Alexandria Casio Cortes proposing a top tax rate of seventy percent Senator Warren proposing a wealth tax annual wealth tax an extra assessment of surtax as were on the super rich. Right. The top zero point less than zero point one percent of US households. Well, seems to me that once they take these on the road, right? So wars running for president this one of the centerpieces of her campaign. Let's see how this plays with Iranian people. My suspicion is that it's going to go over very very very well because people are still angry and Benedict Donald Zoe made them angrier because his wealth and income inequality efforts have only made the worse. He said he was going to drain the swamp. He only made it. Swap beer, one eight eight eight three two one. Six thousand and one last word on this is there are two types of populism in America. And if you look through our history, it's the exact same word. This is where it can get confusing. It's the exact same word P O P U L I S M.

We're talking this hour about the fact that already there are four democratic women who have decided to run for president of the United States. There could be more on the horizon, and what that means for women in politics after the two thousand eighteen midterms, and as we look to were forward towards the twenty twenty presidential election.

She's a longtime democratic pollster in an expert on women's votes and female voters as well. They're both with with us from Washington.

Rachel meadow show, which you talked about building on the momentum of female candidates that wondering that twenty eighteen midterm election. Look at all the women who sat never thought I was going to be called on to do this. But they stood up. And they. Said I'm part of this. This is my country. My voice will be heard, and my government will reflect my values. That's what I believe. And I think the best place to fight that is right there from the presidency of the United States of America Senator Elizabeth Warren, they're a little earlier this month Celinda and Lisa you both before the break. We're talking about how the fact that the this large number of women running is beginning to normalize females women seeking the presidency of the United States. And I and I have to say I see what you're saying in that may be true during the primary process, for example. But once, you know, say a woman gets through and becomes the democratic nominee. They're still does that normalization effect still hold in the general election Celinda? Well, I think one of the biggest things that's going to normalize things in the general election, and there will be a star in excitement factor..
