Is Student Loan Forgiveness A Good Idea?
"Right now on the. Us government federal balance sheet there's loan receivables over a trillion dollars of student loan debt sitting there as a receivable for the fiscal year ending nineteen total assets of the federal government worth three point nine trillion of which one point one trillion was direct student loans. But here's the thing. Three point nine. Trillion in assets twenty six point nine trillion in liabilities. The difference the deficit is twenty two point nine trillion dollars. The us government is effectively insolvent. It does more than its assets. And if the us government road off four hundred and forty billion dollars of student loans it would just increase the level of insolvency. It would not sink. The government by any means the education department according to some private consulting work that they contract it out understand what the potential losses are on their student loans found. According to a report by the wall street journal that losses on the one point three seven dollars of student loans outstanding at the time this report was compiled would equal four hundred and thirty five billion dollars. Only nine hundred and thirty five billion would be paid back and that didn't include about one hundred fifty tonnes originated by private lenders that are guaranteed by the government each year. The government lends a hundred billion dollars to students to cover tuition to more than six thousand. Colleges and universities doesn't look at credit scores or the field of study or whether students will make enough after graduating to cover the debt. The wall street journal article reported that between two thousand five in two thousand sixteen four intent student loans. Most of them federal went went to borrowers with credit scores below the subprime threshold. That's assuming they actually had a credit score. Which at the time. That i took out my first student loan which i'll talk about a little later in this episode. I didn't have a credit score. Nor frankly i know what i was doing. But here's the thing. The consultants found out that a major driver of those losses were students. Who went on some type of income driven repayment plan. An income share to wear they only had to pay a percentage of their income and ultimately the loan could be forgiven after a number of years. If a loan isn't paid back in full because the payments are based on income in income isn't growing and ultimately the alone is written off after twenty years or so then that will lead to a loss in addition that study found that there are millions of other borrowers that would default on smaller amounts typically less than ten thousand dollars after the drop out of a community college or a for profit college one of the comments in this wall street journal article on the private consultants conclusion regarding the potential losses. For the us government. Student loan program is that taxpayers would be on the hook for this if the government off four hundred and forty billion dollars of student loans. Us government would receive less interest income and principal payments annually interest if we assume a five percent interest rate on one and a half trillion dollars of student. Loans is is only about eighty five billion dollars. now. I say only because total. Us government revenue is three point four trillion dollars. Interest income from student loans is only about two and a half percent expenditures in fiscal year. Twenty twenty six and a half trillion dollars. The deficit was three point. One trillion fourteen point seven percent of economic output or gdp nominal gdp and fiscal year. Two thousand twenty was twenty one point two trillion dollars. This deficit was fourteen point seven percent of that number the highest since the great financial crisis where the deficit was nine point. Eight percent the highest deficit ever was in nineteen forty three at twenty nine point six percent of gdp. The us ran three point. One trillion deficit in twenty twenty and the federal reserve increased the amount of treasuries on their balance sheet essentially funding that deficit. Two point two trillion dollars is the additional treasury bonds that the federal reserve bought so two point two trillion of the three point one trillion dollar deficit. These student loans are tiny percent of what the government is spending much of which the federal reserve financed indirectly. Veterans are didn't just give the money to the treasury. they went through the county mechanism of buying treasury bonds. But that's what happened. The federal reserve created the money out of thin air to purchase treasury bonds to plug the deficit now when i started hearing about forgiving student. Loans cancelling them. My impression was the student loan. Burden is as high as it's ever been. That students are struggling tremendously compared to when i took out student loans in the late eighties and early nineties. What i found was the average student loan and again this is based on data from marc canter wits. This is just the average student loan balance for graduates with bachelor's degree when they leave school in one thousand nine hundred nineteen ninety-three. It was ninety three hundred dollars. Forty six percent of students had student loan debt. That's about how much i had little over ten thousand dollars in student loans. When i left graduate school today. The average student loan balance is twenty nine thousand nine hundred dollars just for students. With bachelor's degrees sixty nine percent of graduating students have student loan balances. That amount going from ninety three hundred to twenty nine thousand. Nine hundred was a four point. Six percent annual increase. Now that's a burden no doubt and if it growing at four point six percent it's growing faster than inflation yet if i look at what students are making when they graduate in nineteen ninety-three or year after they graduated so in nineteen ninety-four an engineer. Starting salary was thirty thousand. Nine hundred dollars. A humanities graduate was making twenty one thousand three hundred dollars so if we compare that salary to the amount of their debt engineer made three point three times. The amount of student loan debt they had and the humanities major may two point three times the amount of student loan debt they have if we look at what engineers typically make coming out of university. Today it's close to seventy thousand dollars or about two point three times the amount of their student debt back in one thousand nine hundred. They made three point three times the amount that they owed now. It's two point three times so they own more relative to their salary but the interest rates are lower now. So they're able to handle that. But it's not this huge change that i had expected for the humanities graduate. They went from earning two point. Three times Student loan balance to one point eight times now. Part of that is pell. Grants which are grants given to low income students to essentially pay for school. I got a lot of pell grants when i went to school. That program has only grown about three point nine percent per year the maximum payout amount per student so it has not grown as fast as student debt levels. Now we can say well may be. College graduates are able to find jobs. The unemployment rate for recent graduates was five point one percent in nineteen ninety-two it was three point. Nine percent before the pandemic hit in february twenty twenty and so a greater percentage of recent graduates had jobs in early. Twenty twenty then back in nineteen ninety-two now. The unemployment rate at least in september was nine point one percent according to some data from the new york fed which suggests that yeah Graduates are struggling to get jobs. It is harder today than it was in nineteen ninety two but not that much difficult. And i don't recall calls to cancel student. Loan debt back in the early to the mid ninety s

Their Service Entitles Them To Low-Cost Loans. But Veterans Often Pay More.
"John. Four is a retired marine corps. Colonel he served for twenty seven years. Did you see the big fish jumped for is giving me a virtual tour of his harbourside house in a development in punto gorda florida. He's got a dock and a little powerboat and can you see the pool. Oh yeah oh. That's gorgeous yeah all right. Can you see the kayaks and the dock. Actually four is making me kind of jealous of his house at the start of the year interest rates were falling and he wanted to refinance with the. Va loan that has alone backed by the us. Department of veterans affairs vets and service members are supposed to be able to an extra low interest rate and better terms that way so you started calling around and he says the company loaned depot told him we can do. Va loan for you. But it's going to be at three seven five percent interest and they had a lot of fees in there but it was a lower rate than he had at the time so he says he was just about to do the deal with lump depot when he happened to see an ad for. Va loan to a company. Called own up. He went through them and he says he paid lower fees and got more than a full percentage point lower on the rate on his three hundred and thirty thousand dollar loan. That means about twenty five hundred dollars a year in lower payments. He he says when he went back and told loan depot about the better deal. They then offered him a much lower rate to as a veteran. You expect you're getting something from the government. I i was shocked that they didn't just tell me outright. What the best rate. What's a lot of veterans. Assume the same thing according to patrick boy adji. He's the ceo of own up. It's a new company that helps people find a good deal on home loans through a group of different lenders. He says veterans think. They're supposed to get a really good interest rate on a. Va loan so many. Don't shop around but says while these loans are backed by the va they're made by private companies and he says some will head people with much higher costs and basically a worse deal than they qualify for. And they're veterans the. Sit there and think to yourself that this person who served our country is now going to get taken advantage of. And they had no clue they had no idea so in his company did a study. They're releasing it today. They took the top twenty lenders for va loans and looked at the annual percentage rate that the companies charged borrowers on all the loans they made last year and so when we looked at the spread candidly. We were quite surprised that it was as wide as it. Was that the best lenders. And the worst lenders were so far apart from one another. The study found that navy. Federal credit union offered people. The lowest rates at the other higher cost end of the spectrum was a lender called new day. Usa it's a new day for veterans. Who want to refinance at me as a vet. The company is a sponsor of the army navy. Football game it runs. Tv ads with plenty of american flags. We wanna do whatever is best for the individual service person. The study found that of the top twenty. Va lenders new day charged. The highest interest rates more than a full percentage point higher the navy federal which over the life of three hundred thousand dollar thirty year loan is more than seventy thousand dollars. More in interest payments new day in a statement said that the study has a quote serious flaw. It said that's because the study lumps together different types of va loans. That are not the same but michael. Hoon is skeptical of that explanation. He's the president of the non-profit center for responsible lending. The information from this lender does not explain their borrowers are being charged so much more than other lenders are charging. Their va borrowers as far as loan depot. The company that john four. I talked to the study. Found that during two thousand nineteen. It's rates were about average. The company is also a recent financial supporter of npr biology. With own up says the big takeaway from his study for him is that people need to shop around and find the best rate that they can and negotiate for the best rate. Because if you don't it could be one of the most costly mistakes you make in your financial life that's good advice for. Va loans and other types of mortgages to chris arnold npr

Should I Use My Employer's Car Lease Benefit?
"Ethan is in Detroit High Ethan. Welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. Doing great man how can we help? I word for an automotive maker manufacturer and engineer there. Can One of the company perks or benefits I guess. That they offer is a employee leaf option, right? So I I can get a vehicle. It's a one year lease. Yep a London Mile with insurance included YEP and repairs. Repairs Maintenance wrinkly Irish included everything's included. Yep and prior to. Working there I was paying around two hundred insurance. Idea of And I'm debating. So my current payment is around five fifty and actually brought my wife's and on the program recently. I'm debating even worth it to carry that. The Fowler. The lease on your employment on your employees deal. Yeah Okay. You're on and you're driving a nice car. Yeah it is. It's a truck. You you didn't take. You didn't take the cheaper chicken you got the big dog. Well Who is Ford. Our Jeanne outs. I. Chrysler Oh. Okay. All right. Well, I've looked at several of these Nissan is here in our neighborhood I've looked at the Ford one. I've looked at the GM. Went off the top of my head but most of these have nothing to do with a traditional card lease. It's an employee benefit program. You're basically got a car completely furnished miles everything insurance everything's built in at five fifty. You can't touch that truck for that. Truck goes down five, hundred, fifty dollars a month in value if you own it. And you got insurance and maintenance and gas and everything they include gas don't they some of them Goodson doesn't okay but it's got everything is maintenance included. All maintenance. So car breaks, you just take it in. Yeah. So this is not a this is an employee benefit. This not lie to Lee. Not, Your Evil Carly's program right that the other side of your company sales. But this is a great deal for you Ethan driving around. Yeah. It's a round. where? I, thought you were thought. Dadgum usually, it's not five fifty. It's usually like three hundred when I'm running into these things but you got your driving seventy thousand dollars truck. That's the thing. So good for you. You cannot touch that truck for that kind of money it's six grand a year and everything's G. if I worked there I would do that deal. This is not a finance plan. This is not a lease. This is a simple employee benefit and it is a killer employee benefit do it I guess we're kind of debating knows. So my wife is on it too. She has a wrangler. Yeah, and I'm wondering if it's worth to have two vehicles on that, we're trying to get something cheaper off. Let me try this again, you cannot operate a vehicle for three times what you're paying. Car Think. About. It add insurance. Maintenance depreciation. In value right now, put those three numbers in the calculator. Do the truck you're driving it takes fifteen, hundred, fourteen, hundred dollars a month to replace it. Okay because a stupid things going down in value more than you're paying a month, not counting the maintenance in the insurance. And the same for her now. The question is. Can you afford? Are you? Are you biting off too big a bite of the apple here is your household income, support these payments but the bottom line is if you if they support these payments and you were to buy this vehicle, you're going to have three ex in the vehicle what you're paying. Okay so it's a great deal. Do as many as you need to do as long as you can handle the cash flow out of their income, which is unbelievable. So would a situation like this? Dave, if you were to leave the company, you're just turning in the vehicle. Yeah you lost it. You lost your employee benefits. You lost it. Okay. And you and you do need to flip it every year because they're they're flipping these things out that you know it's a small percentage of their total production under the employees right but the Nissan plan is very similar. Right down here, the road from us the the Ford is very similar. I've seen those and BMW's and other one's got. They've got one that's pretty similar to the guys over in south, Carolina that listen to us over there at the beamer plant It's got the same option and driving a stink in beamer for a third a fourth of what it would cost you. Anyone else. To buy it outside of that employees listen everybody out there that's listening real quick. We're talking about an employee benefit program not nataly idolise yeah, I. Don't don't don't blow up men box with this It's an employee benefit plan, which is why people were able to do that. So it's part of their recruiting. It's part of the benefits that they're given to their team members. So just wanted to clarify that. Yeah. In his case on that layer worth hit the employee benefit. The value to him is around a thousand dollars a month because it'd be fifteen hundred to replace what he's doing for five hundred. Oh. Yeah. His truck payment. Yeah Without A. That's another twelve thousand dollars a year in income are effectively his benny package is adding. Another two thousand dollars a year to his value again, assuming you can support that level of truck with your income. We not ask Denka I got sidetracked on that. But as Chris said, it's very, very, very smart to say. out loud. We are not saying it's okay at least a car this is not leasing a carton. This renting from your employee employer has a benefit that's all as they call it a one year lease, but you can turn it anytime. You want I don't even hold you to that on this. Very, very good.

Insider trading issues raised after Kodak's stock gets hot
"Shares of Kodak taking another leg lower today as the drama around the company Continues Swirl. The latest twist. Kodak. Significantly up to its lobbying spending before being awarded seven hundred and sixty five million dollar government loan according to Reuters Kodak Spent Eight hundred seventy thousand dollars in lobbying efforts between April and June. Compare that to less than five thousand dollars it spent in Q. One of twenty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred now as. We've been reporting here on fast money. The rise in Kodak's years before news officially broke of that government loans, concerns of insider trading and an SEC broke the company's earnings call last night Kodak CEO said, he supports the government's decision to put the loan on hold until I'd investigation is complete. Karen you have puts in this stock. What is remarkable is that it's nowhere near the level it was trading at prior to the win the loan was announced. Right. Five hundred percent more than that. It's interesting to me that that's a great return on those lobbying dollars, right? I mean eight, hundred, thousand. Seven hundred sixty, million dollar loan or whatever. It might be I think the CEO had to say that I don't really know what else he can say like does disregard those that all that option noise give us the money anyway I think that this I think it's sort of become an embarrassment of to the trump administration and they probably should just. Speaking now someone who's long puts right that they should just let this one go and not not fun this loan it's too noisy. Ten and Every part of that option is just terrible right Tim. What it gets back to you know even if they get the loan, are they the right company to be producing the pharmaceutical? Talk. Once upon a time, try to be a blockchain company. Now back to photography company trying to be a generic drugmaker ingredient maker is right company. I mean. This is a company that has tried to reinvent itself Multiple Times since twenty twelve bankruptcy. And so I just it's hard for me to understand. We don't have enough of a show to talk about the what lobbying efforts or like and the impact and how the shouldn't happen anyway even with real companies. But I think if you look at the trading volume volume on the stock, it went from trading by appointment to trading two hundred and fifty million shares at its peak two weeks ago It's still trading about nine million shares to about eating a million dollars of turnover which tells you there's just an extraordinary backdrop still I agree with Karen, I think there's more to go here.
General Motors unveiled the Cadillac Lyriq crossover
"Trying to capitalize on the red hide electric vehicle market with an all new ev crossover. Let's get to fill Abo-. He's got all the details hey phil. Hey Melissa. This has been in the works for some time and General Motors has made it clear. Cadillac will be the brand that will lead all of its major technology push into electric vehicles over the next several years. So with that in mind last night, they gave us a first look and here it is the new Cadillac Lyric, which is a mid size crossover utility vehicle. This is pretty close to what it's GonNa look like when it ultimately comes out in a few years when you look at the lyric keep in mind that they're saying that. The range will be at least three, hundred miles and the inside has just phenomenal appearance in terms of what it will do with the heads up, display the panel in the front in front of what they call the cockpit behind the instrument, the instrument panel behind the steering wheel it looks fantastic but keep in mind. This is a vehicle that we will not see until twenty, twenty two. That's because they have to build out charging infrastructure around the country. They're not even saying, Hey, we don't know exactly how much of a charge you're going to get with. A quick charge let's over twenty or thirty minutes but the goal here is to become much more competitive and ultimately beat Tesla. Yes. General Motors believes that it can be Tesla if they're gonNA do that they better win in California that is the number one ev market in this country take a look at sales last year we're just showing brand sales here between Tesla and Cadillac, and when you compare the two no comparison at all that is Tesla's biggest market and they're doing quite well there you go. Seventy, two, thousand last year were sales of tests in. California Cadillac little over eleven thousand, they've got their work cut out for them and certainly have their work cut out in terms of catching up to them when it comes to market cap tesla's market cap more than seven times bigger than General Motors in one other piece of Ev Related News. We've been talking about spanks Melissa. You've got fisker, which is what about three weeks ago there was a SPEC that was announced that fisker will ultimately go public through. Well, today they announced that this car, the ocean ev will be built by Magnus tear at Magnus tears. Facility over in Europe we should be clear here. They did not announce that our sources tell us that we reached out to the company. They say they have no comment at this time, but the bottom line is this Melissa everybody wants to get into this space, but we're not going to see a big flutter flurry of these vehicles for at least a couple of years. Thanks, Philibeaux. Bond when I'm not quite sure what the strategy is for releasing the specs of a cool looking car that won't be on the market at all until two, thousand, twenty, two I don't know if people are going to hold off and say, I'm GonNa wait for that Cadillac lyric and not by my tests because the lyrics going to come out and twenty, twenty two. I. Don't know what do you think? Yeah. Patience is a virtue but not not when you have somewhere to be so listen conceptually I do think it makes sense for for Cadillac they've been trying to shift their demographic for years. Now I think they've had a storied past of being a large boxy car I mean you think of an older generation and they've they've gradually typically captain gradually shifted that demographic but that's just it's a concept we're talking about latter half twenty, twenty, two, I mean, what does the consumer demand look like what is the infrastructure look like and then what other technological developments have been made by Tesla and other competitors by the time they're actually able to bring this thing to market. I also thought it was interesting that they had already pegged price in the seventy thousand dollar range. We don't know if that's really going to be an ethical applicable price point two years out. So again, think it's a great headline tension grab her nights in.

Will a Universal Basic Income finally get a real shot?
"You can say one thing for the current crisis. It's given us a chance to try a lot of things that we might never have had the will to do otherwise I amongst those just giving people money okay not everyone but millions and millions of people in Canada and not forever but at least for a few months and this isn't a new idea. It's been around in some form or another for decades. You probably know it as universal basic income and you might associate it with the most progressive voices come the liberal side of the spectrum and you may also associate the opposition to it with complaints of lazy people want free cash instead of working but despite having a long history as a potential way to ease poverty and improve health. This has never been tried on a large scale or for a long time. So the people arguing on either side of it have never had enough evidence to prove their point. So it's been a political football until like with so many things. These days along came the virus and now getting money to people who need it quickly is absolutely essential governments around the world even the most conservative of them have done that and those who support or oppose that kind of policy have mostly agreed on the need for it. It's what happens next. And what we learned from that will determine if we finally give a universal basic income. A real shot. So we'll explain history of the policy small tests that we've seen on it be political behind it and whether or not it will stick around when we get out of this current mass. And we'll do that as soon as Claire gives the details on this current mess cargill is dealing with the outbreak at one of its meat processing plants. This one isn't Schambori Quebec southeast of Montreal. Sixty four workers have tested positive. There cargill had another outbreak a few weeks ago at a beef packing plant in high river. Alberta in that outbreak more than nine hundred workers tested positive. It reopened last week after a two-week shutdown also in Quebec schools in the western part of the province are set to reopen today but attendance is optional. Desks will be spaced apart. And there can be no more than fifteen kids in a classroom at a time. Ontario reported the lowest number of cases of Cova nineteen for the province on Sunday since March. Two hundred ninety four new cases. And this comes. The province reopens Provincial Parks and Conservation Areas. Although camping is still not allowed and things like beaches playgrounds and public washrooms are still off limits. And lastly schedule and is suspending the sale of alcohol in the Northern Community of La Lush to help control the spread of cove in nineteen. The alcohol store will be closed for two weeks. To prevent people from gathering. There will be support for those at risk of alcohol withdrawal as of Sunday evening. Sixty eight thousand eight hundred and forty eight cases of covert nineteen in Canada with four thousand nine hundred and seventy deaths. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story Max. Faucet is a writer and a reporter for many publications including on this project for the Walrus. Hey Max he joined our. I'm doing as well as can be expected. Which is how everybody should hopefully answer that question. These days you start by defining What is a universal basic income Broad is that term. And what does it mean? Sure so I mean you know this is an idea that's been around for some time now and and there can be competing definitions and I suspect. We'll get into that in a second but the one that I adhere to the one that you know certainly I informed Andrew Yang's campaign in the United States and that has been informing most of the conversation about UBA. Right now is It has three conditions it's automatic. It's unconditional in its non-withdrawal. So basically that means it comes every month doesn't matter who you are you get it. You could be making a lot of money or a little money and you get it. And then it's non withdraw so It's not means tested. So it doesn't get clawed back you know as you as you make more money you know. There's much conversation on you know econ twitter about various amendments and adjustments to that formula. But I think that's a good way to think about it. Can you give me a little history of it? You mentioned it's been around for a long time Has it been tried for real anywhere where to come from that? Depends on your definition of for real right. I think people look at the idea of giving people money from the government. And they think well this must be a left-wing idea but actually the first real experiments with it happened in the nineteen sixties and early nineteen seventies and it was driven by a Richard Nixon and Milton Friedman. Who is the father of supply-side economics? Yeah they saw it as a way to replace the welfare system and so they their idea of a basic income is not quite the way I just defined it. It was something called a negative income tax. And so let me. Just get a tiny bit. Wonka share the way it worked in their conception is basically they would give people a percentage of the difference between their income and defined income cutoff or like the point where they start paying income taxes so if they set the cutoff at let's say forty thousand dollars and the negative income tax percentage was fifty percent. Someone who made twenty thousand dollars a year would get ten thousand dollars from the government. They made thirty five thousand they would get two thousand and from the government so is this sort of sliding scale where topped you up up until a certain point and then it went away right. They cancelled it in one thousand nine hundred and you know the the the Reagan era kind of buried it under under Nixon's legacy in Canada. Did something called the men come experiment? Which was the Manitoba Basic Income Experiment? That was more that was closer to the basic income that that I described earlier in the one that a lot of people are talking about right now so that says that gave thirteen hundred urban and rural families in Winnipeg and don't Fan Manitoba with incomes below. Thirteen thousand dollars a year back then money. But by the time that the data was collected in nineteen seventy eight so they ran up from seventy five to seventy eight. The Canadian government kind of lost interest in and they cancelled the project. So we've had these these aborted attempts to gather a sample and it hasn't really provided any conclusive evidence In the in the American one. There's some evidence that it that it you know Negatively impacted people's willingness to go to work in the Canadian won the data suggested otherwise. But there just wasn't enough data to conclusively determine the impact of giving people money on their both on their willingness to work and on on the outcomes that the government's wanted to test. Which is you know better. Health Outcomes Better Labor outcomes better social outcomes so you know the jury was still out right. Will what kind of a sample size and study length? Would you even need to determine that because again we had one or at least something like one here in Ontario Under Kathleen Wynne. A few years ago and the next government came to power and it was immediately phased out. So you know. I don't think we got more than two or three years out of that either. So what kind of scale are we talking about? Yeah I mean to make it work. You would needs multiple cities multiple tests populations and a long duration of study. This is this is a a bold policy intervention but you need to be able to control for extenuating circumstances and factors the Ontario project. Was it had some really promising results. As it turned out there was a study group at McMaster that basically interviewed the people that participated in the program. Some of the data they had eighty percent of of people reporting better health outcomes. They were using less tobacco drinking. Less eighty-three percent said they had better mental health. They were feeling less stressed. They had a better diet And there was even interesting. Data around better labor market outcomes people were basically using the minimum income the guaranteed income to improve their jobs to look for better job. So it's disappointing that the government scrapped it after basically what amounted to one year and left us in the same spot that we've sort of always been with these things where we just don't have enough data for either side to conclusively prove that their argument is right and you know maybe not maybe now is the opportunity to kind of walk in that that longer sample size but you know the problem here is that. It's always tempting for governments to to start these programs and then abandon them or different governments to come in and cancel them. You'd need some sort of agreement by all parties that they're going to let this run. Its course and we haven't really seen that yet. So you mentioned that it's seen mostly now at least as a left-wing idea might have begun under Nixon. But certainly I think that's how most listeners would frame it as you know Whether or not you support it About the side of the spectrum that it comes from but as we've started to see government's realizing how badly they need to help people as the economy collapses during this pandemic have seen any movement On the other side of the aisle towards this kind of idea I think we've seen much more movement on on the conservative side than we have on the progressive side the beano progressives are are are very wary of guaranteed income proposals because I think you know quite rightly they remember certainly the academics who studied this. They remember that it was originally an idea that was intended to get rid of welfare and other social supports and that is always a concern that if you bring in a guaranteed income. Is it really just an attempt to shrink? The size of the state is an attempt to get rid of targeted support programs that that make people's lives better and I think that's a totally valid concern when I when I posted my article from the wall or something twitter. I got a lot of feedback from economists about that where they basically said you know. Oh here we go again. People people don't realize that this is a an attempt to slip in through the back door reduction in social programs. That's really interesting. Yeah but you know. Over the last few months we've seen a really array of conservatives. Come out and say that this is a good idea. Hugh Seagull. Who is a former senator standing red? Tory I WOULD. I would describe him as a thought leader. He's been he's been banging the drum for for guaranteed income for quite some time now but he was always sort of out there in the wilderness as a conservative suggesting that this was a good idea and he wasn't one of the ones who was saying that it should replace social programs. He was saying it should be an augmentation to them but in the states over a matter of weeks you saw people like Mitt. Romney coup is basically the Avatar of hedge fund capitalism. Coming out and and suggesting that this was a good idea that would support. Americans during the fallout from Cova and ultimately Donald Trump's government. It's not it's not a permanent basic income. But they sent a check to every American and that is sort of one of the hallmarks of a basic income. So it's interesting the degree to which we've seen conservatives rally behind this particular policy flag. I think that it is driven by shorter. Term political objectives American politicians having election. That they're looking at in November and one of the surest ways to get defeated is to be in being government while people are losing their jobs losing their homes losing their livelihood so I think it's more self preservation than a genuine change of heart but in from a policy perspective. You take the support where you can get it and you build on it from there. So you know I think advocates of a U. UB. I should take their support and and leverage it in order to build their movement if you can may be explained to me the thought behind the benefits of this applying to absolutely everyone including people who have job because that's really And we can debate in Canada versus the US for however long. But that's that's like the primary difference between what trump's government has done and what Canada's done with the baby. Yeah that's the tricky part. That's the part that a lot of people struggle with conceptually and intellectually as is the idea of giving people who don't need money more money right. Yeah and Ken Boston cool. Who is is a former adviser to Stephen Harper and Christy Clark? He's been kind of driving the bus in Canada around the need for a UB. I you know he's he is preferred that to the more targeted approach that the government has taken with Serb. You know his idea in the short term is we just need to get money into people's hands right. Now we need we need to stimulate the economy and ultimately will tax it back next year on people's income taxes that's the thing about a guaranteed income in the context of the system. We have here is if you're making sixty seventy thousand dollars a year. This is going to a portion of this. We'll get taxed back right and so it's not. It's not really free money. It's a little bit of free money and I suspect there would be some social programs that would get pulled back a little bit to to make the numbers work but you know at the end of the day. I don't think you can let the weaknesses in the policy that that might impact a few people. Override the benefits that would impact far more people. You know there's there's all sorts of data out there that suggests that a basic income would actually stimulate economic growth. There's all kinds of data that suggested improves. Health outcomes and Lord knows improving. Health outcomes would save taxpayers and the government a lot of money. Because that's where an increasing increasingly large part of our social budget is going and we'll continue to go in the years and months to come so you know it it is It's a tough idea to get past for some people that I find working already. Why should I get more money from the government but that money's going back into the economy and it stimulating economic growth that supporting jobs? It's reducing healthcare costs. You know I think there's a pretty good case for it and and you know it's one that we should be willing to explore. I am I am more than open to criticism about the cost factor that I suppose we can get to that in a second but I think we also need to look at the benefits and look a little a little bigger in terms of where those benefits accrue it. It's not just lifting people out of poverty. Although that's that's an obvious benefit it's improving people's health outcomes improving their labor market outcomes. Let's people who have a
Direct Connections - Chuck & Matt McMurray
"All right introducing my guests for the first edition of direct connections. Chuck mcmurray and his son. Matthew mcmurray guys. Are you doing good good and happy Easter by the way Yeah Happy Easter? Do you guys to before we get into your current mo par endeavors. Let's rewind time a little bit and chocolate start with you. What got you into Mope ours. So it's an interesting thing. There was a A nineteen eighty eight hot rod magazine. Maybe it was car craft and they had the the top ten fastest cars of all time and they were measuring the cars in various road courses in quarter miles and things like that and so you know at the age of thirteen. I was really into like Lamborghini. Coon Tauch Ferraris did not the cars and car that owned the quarter mile for that particular top. Ten that they did was a sixty two Max Wedge Dart Right which is the opposite looking of a Lamborghini coon touch and I was just completely floored that something that was that ugly could be that fast and so that kind of caught my eye and from then on I just started picking up reading magazines and kind of following the Mo par story and of course once you get into the four twenty six Hemi content and you realize how many engines they own in straight line racing. They've been pretty much the dominant force when it comes to top fuel and those types of engines and things and so I stuck with it then Got Into my own cars. When I was fourteen. My Dad let me by a seventy four valiant with three hundred bucks out of a walgreens parking lot in Chicago knew nothing about it. You know toward the slant six out and and learned the hard way and After that got into a sixty six cornet and from then on it was it became pretty natural to me to be able to fix stuff was always kind of good with my hands and just fell in love with the brand which was weird because in the early nineties you know. Mo- par didn't have nearly what they have today. Or what the late sixties so sure it was definitely a hard time to be the underdogs so to speak. Definitely Matthew. What about you? Obviously your dad had to have some sort of influence on you and your love of no go ahead. Go ahead and tell your side of the story. Yes so I mean I've actually got two different peaks Because I'm interested in both old offers annual And the the new generation are and actually both have to drexel cars that he's bought so that goes twelve years old. My Dad Decides to tell me. Hey we're going up to Wisconsin and we're GONNA TALK HUNDRED DOLLAR. Nineteen Sixty six dodge. Coronet THE ROAD. Kill the road kill influence. We actually did have a pretty big influence. And I can't leave that part out because I started watching roadkill with him and that definitely sparked the interest in him to want to go and fight in this car. So it's kind of whole cycle on. We started with them. And so when up to Wisconsin? We bought this car and drove at six hours home and it was incredible. That was we almost did. Maybe almost didn't make it. We ended up. You ended up getting home all right and we spent six months with that car before we decided to try it out for our newest nineteen seventy-three Dodge coronet which we still have today. But then so that's my interest in Olmo parts. That's how it all started and now since day. I'm actually driving a nineteen seventy seven plymouth. Which we bought on Saint Patrick's Day this year green current Saint Patrick's Day in and right around the same time my dad decides to get a two thousand ten dodge challenger Archie. And I'll be honest at first I was not kind of it. I was Kinda weird new car. He's always had cars around and then we decided to take it out to route. Sixty six raceway out here. Julia took it down the track. And I for some reason to seeing the car out on the track comparing its other cars. My Dad was out there I was like this is so awesome just the track experience everything about it and pretty much that moment on just seeing the cargo down the track during during a testing tune into it was awesome. Was that your first time at the drag strip. No I've been since I was like three dragged him out every summer and spring we would go down there and go to the MCA events and took him to the Shows when he was so young. The only thing you wanted to do is by matchbox cars and free ice cream. I think the influence of seeing enough of it you know. He started to kind of pick up the hobby and took to it. Pretty naturally right on right on well now that we have a little bit of your background. Let let me ask you a couple of questions. We get into your businesses journey. What do you guys think about? The current mopey marketplace as far as where pricing is for not only project mopeds that are classics but also fully restored Mo- parse. How do you feel about that? You know it's interesting Because you know we've done worked for retailers in the automotive market we've kind of followed where the investment Moped level cars have gone since you know after the economy crashed in two thousand nine and it really got inflated right. It was almost frightening to think that if you wanted to go out and get a four forty four a barrel automatic body that you're GONNA be spending at least forty thousand dollars for something so that was crazy but I am happy that the market is recognized that these cars important enough to put the money into them and take care of them because so many of them just got left out in the weeds and crushed and everything else. So it's been interesting to see kind of how that's continued to change over time but what? I found what I found really interesting where you know. The price of the aftermarket is gone. It's actually a lot cheaper now than it was so many years ago to be able to build engines and get parts. There's you know we went to. Sima last Fall and you know you go to the Diamond Piston booth. And there's four different piston types just for the four hundred in a low deck engines. There was stuff we dreamt of twenty five years ago so I think that's great and the new stuff has certainly respond generation in the market You know it's challenging that hell cats. Are you know to get into one now? If you're going to get into a used one you're probably looking at forty forty five thousand but the demons you know. They're still at that inflated price is you know even with all the incentives you're still looking at a seventy thousand dollars. Eighty thousand carbajal are also buying a ten second. Turnkey Quebec killer so I guess that does make sense. But it's it's really exciting time and I think It has never been good to be a mope or guys it is at least in the last couple of years and my personal. I definitely agree. What about you matthew? What do you think about? These prices are the crazy. Or what for me definitely barely for anything that any of these cars I see him? I'll go on facebook marketplace a lot. Just dream you know. Look at Ebadi's I'll look at peabody charters and stuff and I'm just thinking to myself like if it weren't for the fact that he was into the stuff I would just continue to dream and but I think that it's words at is pretty good because if you look at the comparison of other domestic vehicles New prices used prices. They're they're pretty expensive and I mean it's when you're in the restoration market alone. You're looking at expensive prices anyways. When you're going to get into a project you know you're GONNA be spending money but I would definitely say that. For where things are you know. Where the economy is. I think that the prices are very reasonable and and for some cars for some. I feel like you know the demon. The inflation should go down. I'm hoping it goes down as I just I mean. It's an incredible carbon. I just one hundred and thirty nine hundred now. Let me ask you both this. Do you think that 'cause I I've been seeing almost a divide between modern moped enthusiasts and the the old school guys for lack of a better term. Do you think it takes a little bit of fun out of the equation when you go out him by say a demon or even a hell cat or a hell cat red eye because they're already fast out of the box so like you know you dump will say fifty thousand or a hundred thousand plus on a car you know unless your pockets are really deep. I mean how much modification are you really going to do? How much fun are you really going to have aside from just turning the key in going? Do you think that those cars take the fun out of it you know? It's it's a twenty to say that because we've we've really Invested in in both old and new and having a two thousand fourteen thirty eight that ran he got an eleven ninety. Three out of it with soft tires out of the box mods and It was neat. Because you know out of the box you can go that fast but at the same time. There really wasn't a lot that you could touch easily. If you'RE GONNA make one modification you need at least a tune and with a tune in a few modifications if you put the Karni Eleven's then you need to start trason Dr Line making improvements and so it's really never just a bolt on. It's a few thousand bucks so you know I'd say that it's reinvigorated the market but I would agree that there seems to be kind of a divide between the folks that did restoration and were part of this for thirty or forty years and what the new market has done but in some ways it has kind of taken the fun out of. I think you know when when you can get in a red eye in run ten teens or high nines to do that in a body would require a lot more. Yeah so it makes it easier if you are not mechanically inclined and you don't have tools but at the same time it has reset the bar for. What is a fast car? So it's a it's interesting right but they're also forty six hundred pounds. So you know the safety equipment. My concern with a lot of those cars. What happens if you do have something happen at the end? I mean forty six hundred pound car versus twenty. Eight hundred pound. Cars is a lot more inertia
An Open Source Economy of Abundance with Marcin Jakubowski
"Hello everybody Vince Horn here for another episode of Buddhist Geeks and today I am very very delighted to be having a conversation with Martian Jukovski. Good to have you on the show Martin and thank you so much for taking the time to chat with the Buddhist geeks. I'm really excited about this conversation. Because so much of what you're doing. Feel a resonance with but it's also different from what we're doing here Buddhist excited Dick's where the intersections excellent. So let's dive right in. Okay I've got my bathing suit on and I'm ready to go seven Fahrenheit and sweet Maysville Missouri. But I'll join metaphorically awesome are you. Are you at the factory farm right now yes. That's the Kansas City area. Okay cool and I and I understand that. You have also google fiber out there. Oh and that's an addition since about a year now and that's why we can have this conversation hopefully seamlessly today. Yeah no mood. That's a big game changer fiber. We spent the money on a week. We got the pipes run here. Trenched bury them and the whole facility with Up to four GIG. Wow that's awesome. See if you're kind of you're living the dream for me. Which is you've got high-speed gig multi gigabit Internet and you're out on a farm building Chit Really Cool. I'm excited to talk about your work so so I saw. I saw your tedtalk a number of years ago. Odds probably about ten years or so ago now Something like that and and just immediately was like okay this person and your partner Katharina. Y'All are doing really interesting work with the open source ecology movement and In that talk you spoke about the global construction kit which you know. Last time I checked this is like a fifty fifty or so different items that you're looking to build open source that the kind of you would be necessary for human civilization to To to this global village construction set fifty industrial machines to create small-scale civilization with modern comforts essentially the critical machines from tractors bread ovens production equipment energy equipment and and Carson everything. You need to create infrastructure. That's the basis of thriving than so we can talk about then getting meditative but you have to provide some basic needs. I yeah you can't you can't just Meditate without without some basic needs Yogis the the people they had their comfortable caves and flame. That's right that's right. Yeah and some nettles to eat right and and and you're going to see the vision that you'll have is is going well beyond that. I mean you're talking about being able to replicate modern comforts without having to rely so much on the sort of centralized modern systems that we've all come kind of dependent on. Yeah exactly the idea is. Let's distribute the economy. So right now we're in a state of centralization but the fund that by fundamental design we have a distributed world and I think that comes from the first principle of energy energy is distributed. Solar Energy is distributed. That's pretty much where all the power for today's economy comes from. It's from the sun right so by nature. We have a distributed system but the way we created we kind of reformulated as humans isn't into a hugely centralized one so to get back to more in touch with those principles of distribution decentralisation that gives power to everybody literally and metaphorically to tell me more about like the journey that you've been on with the global village construction set because I saw you've you've made a tremendous amount of progress on that front. You know it's one thing to hear someone give a Ted talk about about something that's like an inspiring idea prototypes. It's another to see your ten years later. Like have made real progress on the stuff again to hear about that. Yeah definitely maybe you know you can say at the time of Ted Talk. Were a few percent down right now. I would quantify it as like one third done so we've got hundreds of prototypes Twenty or thirty unique prototypes everything from tractors to CNC machines. Three D. PRINTERS HOUSES. Akwa punit greenhouses. In fact we actually added the house as a critical machine since we kinda thought well. That's a living machine. Actually belongs in the global village construction set but the power is yet getting a comprehensive said along a construction setup route. So we're looking at it more as building blocks and to derive from how Lennox Open source. Software has there is one of the keys to success was large modular break down into very small parts can have thousands of people working on at the same time. And that's exactly what we do with hardware breaking down into modules and development steps for each module sewer inching along at the time of the Ted. Talk I kind of felt like I missed my great opportunity because I had so many people contact me. And all of that and we didn't have an organization. We hardly have an organization right now. We really don't yet. Were not at that level of having a business so to say like a real solid organism. But we do have a lot of foundational work. I think we are. I would call ourselves an exponential organizations laying a solid foundation with all the prototyping that we have done now ready to to convert that to economic impact so transitioning from the Playing prototyping to to the to the next step which a lot of open source Projects Forget and that is a product. So what what are the products that we can offer that anymore? Anyone can use okay. That's cool. I mean it's interesting. I'm thinking back to win. I got even more kind of interested in Y'all's work and I think at a certain point I started to really feel this kind of poll to be sort of subtract myself out ourselves out of the sort of capitalist system a bit more to be able to offer meditation teaching more freely. You know to be little less dependent on a pay for service model and you know one of the big questions that comes up is like okay. We'll around like housing costs. And how do you? How do you reduce your cost like housing is like one of the major costs and you all were some of the only people that were talking about being able to build an an ecologically sustainable you know house for like twenty five grand? Yeah and that's unheard of you not to be able to hit those kind of Knows numbers and that's what I think is really interesting about what what you're trying to do is you're really setting a goal of kind of price reduction that really competes with the capitalist markets on their own terms in a way. That's hard for them to be. It'd be hard if you're actually able to pull this off for companies to To to have any response to tenth the Price House or tractor or brick press or all the things that you're building. Yeah that's exactly right so let's dive into. There's actually a very interesting page like when I look at the WIKKI statistics. There's a page on our wicky open source ecology that org slash wicky which has cost of living. And you said it. The number one cost of living is housing on average. I have some stats here in. Its sixty eight hundred dollars a year. Then the second one is your car. Thirty four hundred dollars a year and then food twenty six hundred dollars a year and yet it adds up to about twenty thousand or so. Just let's see the the number actually is twenty thousand per year per person according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics for a household doesn't sound too bad but Ideas let's so let's go for example to the CDC home just to show you like a very tangible example so in a CD go home. You mentioned twenty five thousand dollars okay. But where's the Labor that's materials so the model there is a client? Pays probably like ten thousand dollars service fee. We host a workshop where we swarm on the build with about fifty or so people and build that in five days and I think that the more like a turnkey cost to the client. We more like seventy thousand. That's kind of what if we if you'd actually start full cost accounting like the twenty five thousand dollars as materials. Yes so you'd have to figure out how to do it but we did with a swarm based build the idea there is you are providing an immersion education. So basically you're selling inexperienced. People participate in get a lot of skills have a lot of fun shatter some of the limits in their mind about what's possible in terms of effective building using very collaborative learning rich learning environment. That's very supportive. So that's the product we're trying to develop and probably if you look at economics probably like seventy thousand dollars for a a house builder a basically the House. The person who wants to have the house before fourteen hundred square foot house so still about was Chris in the cost of industry standards. Right we actually roll this out. So there's a whole organization to behind it and sell. That's kind of how it looks right now. Now of course if you're a skilled guy and you've got a family that can build that while you're not gonna be able to do it in five days but over a month he can take our modular construction methods because everything in the system is designed to be handled by people not not example cranes or large machines the way we designed modular construction method lends itself to a swarm belt with normal people and really reducing the skill set by essentially trying to turn this into. Lagos as much as possible That's interesting and and from what I gathered like everything that you're doing the documentation around the processes like everything is part of the open source model like everything is shared shared. Absolutely everything. There's two levels so one is design seconds. Dente price design. And that's that this is where we talk about the concept of distributive enterprise. Yes the idea if we do it. And it's good for the world. Everyone can use it and and people in modern society. People think that you have to be proprietary or you have to have a competitive advantage based on Ip Order to win here are competitive. Advantage or collaborative advantage is the the opposite. Is the fact that we're collaborating? And if you think about it you're in kindergarten you'd understand because at that point we kinda were talked to to Cher but from High School Into College. Johnny were completely taught the opposite and right now. There's a huge cultural barrier that prevents people from comprehending that. Hey we can actually do. More together.

"They said how can I help? So I have a lump sum of money coming in sometime midsummer, I didn't even know about at an accident at work with the a basically sent out a crane that had failed inspection. I used it. And it went down, and I broke my shoulder pads injuries and didn't know the rest of this was something they went through, but I'm going to end up with about seventy thousand dollars. So. Yeah, are you? Okay. Now, I am a medical bills been paid. They took care all that. And there was a, you know, eight or twelve week recovery process. I'm good. So you're so you're back to work and all the bills are paid. So this is found money. It's extra money. Yes. Wow. What's your household income while normally my standard is about one hundred and five my wife, and I? When we were in step two, we wrapped up to about one sixty and I've. Dialed down a gazelle a little bit about one thirty right now what maybe step for you on four or five and six excellent well done. So this. Yeah. Four and six one kid left in that's already, you know, taken care of so, okay? So we are doing fifteen percent. My three scenarios I wanted to to go. So I have a house that's worth about three seventy five we all about two hundred on it. And we're beating up on that pretty bad to rent does one was originally, you know, they they both originally had. But now once paid for one we have about fifty thousand left, they're they're both worth about one hundred thousand and then the last thing. I wanna get a fifty seven Chevy. Oh, cool. So that's kind of where we're at as I have this lump sum coming in, and my wife, and I discussed it and said we've always talked about getting this car. But is a smart thing to you know, we throw seventy at the house now, we're at one thirty with the rental that's paid for and we have twenty left or we get to fifty seven, which if real nice one, we're kind of looking at would be, you know, forty forty five and we'd have another thirty to decide to do something with. But what this phone money? What's the smart thing to do? I okay have about where we're at about. Besides the equity and all the stuff I said just with our for ones in our Ross and stuff is around half a million right now, and we're both forty eight. So. Okay. Eddie towards. Yeah. That's almost billionaires with you know, all that stuff. And your other two cars are worth what? Yeah. Ten or fifteen thousand nothing, you know, I got a two thousand twelve silver out. Oh, she's got to love SUV paid for. If I were you. I would buy it. Perfect. And and I probably the rest of it at the rental and then finished rental often about twelve months. And then you're free except your house, and that that increases cash flow going everywhere. And then let's just knocked the house out probably another three years. Perfect. That's kind of what we're hoping you'd say. But yeah, the car was seven years down the road. And now, I'm not I think you're okay. Because you're not I mean, if it was one hundred thousand we'd have to give pause a little shocked at that high. But it can be it depends on what you what you're buying. But. I've got a sixty corvette nineteen sixty that's a frame up restoration and engine and transmission replacing rebuild. So and I've got more than that in it. But you know, so it just depends. You know, you get into those cars, there's all kinds of levels of of conditioning and redo and what whether you're after original or whether you after hot rod or whatever, but fifty seven's a classic. I mean, that's the American Pokka. Right. I mean, it's just there. It's it's based and you're not old enough to even know what that car is. So you're just looking at the iconic stuff. Yeah.

"I'm not waiting ten years to get out of debt. Well, I think we might end up waiting that long that long why? It just feels like that with the way our income is versus how much we have. Let's all right. Let's do a little math. What did you guys make the year before you graduated? Your students. Well, the year before I graduated my income was about twenty thousand. Yeah. Heard was still voyagers fifty. Okay. So you're income has virtually doubled in one year. Yeah. Okay. That I got I got it. Okay. If you were to keep your lifestyle super low like a fifty thousand dollar lifestyle, and you make one hundred and twenty three that seventy thousand dollars not counting taxes, okay? One twenty three months fifty if you lived on fifty which is doable. For a young couple getting started back the average household income in America's only fifty nine. So I know it's doable. Okay. So let's say you lived on fifty and you put twenty in taxes, and you put fifty thousand dollars a year on this two hundred thousand divided by fifty is what? Four years. I'm trying to write down everything you're telling me. Okay. That's all right. You have one hundred eighty three thousand dollars in student loan debt. Plus all the other crap. Right. So if you throw fifty thousand dollars a year at your dad for four years, that's two hundred thousand dollars, isn't it? Yes. Fifty times four. Okay. You're debt free. Now. Here's what's going to happen. You're going to do it in three years because your income that you're giving me right here is your starter income and as a nurse. You have a wonderful field career field that you are entering you. Have unbelievable income earning opportunities. And your income is gonna go up very quickly. And even if it doesn't go up at the particular job, you're at it can go up just by working the ER. You got all kinds of places you can pick up extra jobs as a nurse and make serious Bank. If our goal is now because I want you to get a house. I just don't want you to get a house while you're broke because it'll kill ya. And so I want you to get this mess cleanup. Because if you move in house with all this debt, you have to buy an extra bedroom just for Sallie Mae. Yeah. I mean, this is this is a lot of weight, and I certainly don't wanna walk around with it for ten years. So my game plan for you guys would be that you get very focused and very intense. You stop all investing temporarily you stop all saving temporarily you get on a beans and rice, rice and beans. No life budget like you were a college student making fifty grand and you throw EV you squeeze every dollar out of each paycheck that you can find and you throw it at your smallest debt. I pay that off your next malls death in pay that off you don't borrow anymore. You get off the credit cards and cut them up you get in attack mode. Like, it was like you were in the ER trying to save somebody's life clear. Right. I mean, you gotta get after it. That's what you gotta do here. Because otherwise, you're gonna you're gonna waste your life away for a decade, you won't give a decade to this stuff. No way. Thinking about how much would be forgiven. So I thought that was a good idea. Now. That would be because what you're going to lose seven years of your life. That's what you're going to lose. And you just don't want. It's not worth it. The beautiful thing about your particular career track. Is you have the ability make a lot of money as a nurse as an RN. I mean, you you re there's you're always going to find employment and you get extra employment out there. So did you say you guys just got married to? Yeah. Cool. Well, congratulations. Have you heard me talk about you sound like you're kind of new to all this? Have you heard me talk about our class financial peace university? We've actually been to the class, and we're kind of redoing it right now. Yeah. You need to because you didn't get it. Because you just call me up and asked me to buy a house with hundred eighty three thousand dollars in debt. So that means you didn't get the class. Because the student loan repayment forgiveness wasn't addressed in the class so annoying, but we didn't know about this forgiven. Should we be making minimum payments and allow it to be forgiven? Believe that income if it if it wasn't a decade of your life that you are a slave. Three years. We talk about it. But it's a decade. And if you had almost no income upside potential, and you got tremendous income upside potential, so yeah, go back through the class. Then get a reset get refocused. Get re-energized reset your goals jump on every dollars budget going you need to get over. And stop your 4._0._1._K. You need to do that already. And you didn't.

"Of dollars a game we're talking about a twenty five grand for one one ticket for season people divide that up sometimes several people among them i depart at two different ticket plans for baseball once for football and it just happens but that's how normal people live and yes i'm sorry but the justice not super wealthy and it's almost like they hold that against it he's not one of us he's not balik no he's not and frankly when i first heard the report and i didn't have the additional details that it was part of a group ticket purchase i thought dan if you wanted to sell a candidate not that he has to be sold to the american public the way that a politician who seeking elective office does but it would be nice if the american public look at a person is about to go on the supreme court and say yeah he's got all the technical skills in the experiences a federal judge plots seems to be a guy like me they say his net worth may be as little as sixty or seventy thousand dollars you know he's deliberately taken lower paying jobs you and i both know that federal judge is an awfully impressive title but the paycheck that goes with it pales by comparison with the same person could get as a lawyer at an ordinary law firm in one of the big cities in america and most of these people in fact i think john roberts when he went from being a partner in a law firm to being a federal judge before he became supreme court chief justice he took a cut from a couple of million bucks a year to i think two hundred thousand is a federal judge and when he became chief justice his salary actually dropped so you you kind of have to admire a guy who says i want to be a judge and i'm willing to sacrifice big time financially to do it oh by the way i like baseball too and willing to occasionally pay some substantial money to be able to go see the baseball games i want to see that pretty well describes a lot of americans who i'm sure dan there at least you know a few thousand people listening right now who have occasionally gone out and put a sporting event ticket or a concert on the credit card when they honestly knew they couldn't really afford to buy but said i really want to see this game or i really want to see this band play and i'll i'll pay for it over the next few months that sounds like average americans to me so here's a guy with all the qualifications to be a supreme court justice who's not a multimillionaire and he's not a guy who's got you know money falling out of his pocket so he's he's kind of like us i think that's a plus isn't it absolutely the plus and remember the city though the wants people to be elite but they also want to have a shared opinion and after after the media managed to successfully book would be justice many years ago the new york times editorial pretty much rationalizing that they knew his candidacy because of his opinions this is all about they really don't want to have a conservative justice the last looked ahead saw hillary clinton winning they figured they would get somebody lou radical left in merrick garland they get that seat they would have this seat they would they saw potential stocking.
