Health Experts Warn Protests Could Set Off Second Wave Of Police Brutality
"Massive protests across the country have health officials concerned today airway, many of the nation's top medical experts are worried. These demonstrations could lead to a large second wave outbreak up police brutality from the onion and onion public radio. I'm Leslie Price. This is the topical. We've got the latest on each one of the many things you should currently be panicking about so stay with it. Well, it seems that worse could still be ahead of says health officials offered a grim outlook for the future today with a warning that protests currently roiling the nation could set off a second wave of police brutality for more I'm joined by OPR correspondent Marcy Hammond Marcy. Is this something we should be concerned about well? Leslie experts say there is cause for alarm here's deputy director and she'll get. We've seen massive person demonstrations across the country in the last several days, which is of course, a fertile breeding ground for excessive force, and what's worse, we believe that this second spike in police brutality. Deadlier than what we've already seen that those sound concerning no, can you give us a little more context? How did we find ourselves in this situation? Where did this police brutality come from? Well? Of course, some form of police brutality has been with US basically forever, but over centuries of exposure. The American public has largely become immune to it. However, this novel strain that we're seeing this year began with seemingly isolated appearances throughout the country over the last several months, and now boiled over into a full-blown epidemic. So what should we be on the lookout for if we think we may have been afflicted by excessive force well the most important thing. Thing to note is that. If you're feeling symptoms, it may already be too late. Here's deputy director shook it on what exactly watch out for? There are a variety of symptoms. Some of which include puffy swollen is cracked ribs, an inability to breathe, and in many cases death. We're seeing a huge uptick in these symptoms in hospitals and ICU's across the country, which have already been stretched to their breaking point by our militarized police force Oh well fortunately, I don't have any of those symptoms. Am I in the clear, not necessarily. Leslie shook. It also cautioned that there are large number of asymptomatic carriers who can actually be among the most dangerous. Dangerous as they continue to spread systemic violence and oppression, while not even being conscious of it walls, a healthy white man I'm not too concerned, but Marcie. Are there any populations that are particularly vulnerable to this epidemic? Interestingly enough? The CDC has found that the African American community has been affected disproportionately, but really it can affect anyone pets, the elderly even children, and what are officials recommending in the event that you do become exposed. Here's shook it from the CDC once more. If you've been afflicted, we urge you to remain physically and emotionally isolated and avoid all large-scale demonstrations against stay sanctioned violence until physical evidence has healed. Unfortunately, this isn't going. Going away anytime soon, so we're going to have to accept police brutality as part of our future, since any potential cure decades away, and would likely be extremely expensive interesting, so is refraining from protests, the key to preventing the second wave. Well, it may lead to a temporary lull and incidents important to remember police brutality is extremely prevalent, and it can strike vulnerable populations while they're walking through their neighborhood, sitting in their backyard or even asleep in their own bedroom so unfortunately there's really no sure way to escape it all right well. Thanks for the reporting Marcy and stay safe out there. That's OPR's Marcy hammonds. We'll be back in a moment. Somebody better call in the National Guard because there's about to be a news riot. Here's what else we need to know today. In Shenzhen China local sweatshop workers lead Chen was reportedly devastated to hear the jacket she worked so hard on had been looted upon learning that the five dollar jackets she'd labored endlessly over for fourteen cents. An hour have been stolen from Zara retail store in the US Chen was found to be inconsolable comfort to learn that insurance covered the stolen item, and Zara would be just fine.

Anti is breaking from the pack with the Popular Pretzel Shop Chain Today calling for all protesters to be shot. Interesting, tank. and. That's it for the topical today. I'm Leslie Price Well folks. It's been quite a week here. In the United States and I just wanted to take a moment to say that in times like these end in the face of unprecedented and longstanding pain. We hear it onion. Public radio are committed to acting as a ball of equality, searching evermore for striped for Justice and equality. And Justice.

eCommerce Logistics in USA & China with Burak Yolga of Forceget
"Ladies and gentlemen welcome to amazing. Fda Post Today on with Barak Yoga of full gets freight-forwarding expertise seventy eight China in Shenzhen. He's established his own insult freight forwarding company from scratch which is not present in China. Usd by many of the country's sake breaks now living in Miami so getting quite an insect perspectives. Today and I thought he was important. Person to speak to one of the biggest challenges. Right now is supply. Sidon district Scifis set-aside really once oric on the show so Bartram welcome. Thank you so much. So how's life in Miami? We're just chatting about the fact that there's people carrying on like life is no more environments right now It's what is it today like end of March. Almost the you know things are in China going back to normal but now unfortunately they're more and more cases in the United States in it. Looks like you know. We have a pretty slow month in April and in May of businesses shut down right now. People are trying to stay in south currency and nothing official really As except near Simon the soft porn in Florida. A little bit luckier. Because we all look nicer wetter like a little warmer but Rest of the contracting is going to be a little bit more struggling with the winter cold weather so we'll see how it will go. Yes indeed. So let's talk about China for this episode. Then obviously he spent a lot of time in China Seven years in Shenzhen sounds like a novel or something East ICU WAYS. About how to do business in. China was potential for farmers and sellers while they super China particularly in the current situations. Let's get started with random questions I mean. First of all Is China reopening for business? Now when do you think that will be yes So eight hundred. Ninety percent of businesses are back to work but at the moment Most of the factories they don't have full capacity for production right now One of the reason is Roma chill suppliers are also having issues with sublime the enough raw material to the factories and another thing is the Roma tre prices like reading. Because they're really high right now for most of the product China and then one of the worst thing actually when this wire is China was doing. Tiny is some people now. China's largest Public Co. Lane China's most important almost eight hundred nine hundred million people traveling in mainland China. And maybe almost a hundred under fifty million people traveling at Bro. So that's where the wires hit so already. Most of the manufacturers were closed so that was what we were. What we were expecting is actually Those factories will come back to work End of January but things have changed like really badly China. They had to stay close until middle of March so during this time. Chinese factories are having serious issues with the cash flows. You know not receiving any orders. Because they're in the public lays but once they started coming back to work now the rest of the world They have the concern about their health. Most of the country's the government shutdown the countries like Italy France Germany all those countries. They're not doing a business right now. Which means China's factories don't get any orders from the rest of the world so so we're looking at the period of almost ninety days Not Having full capacity working so it's it's really massive cries for China's economy And you know this is going to have a big effect for the girls of the country for this year People back to work They everybody's wearing masks in China. My Office is back to work. We worked for bump for sometime in China. But now everybody's back to work It's difficult to find that domestic truck because prices really increased and another problem is You don't we don't have enough availability. Because most of the main ports in China like Seaports in a airport. Actually most of them they. They're closing in eighteen. Ninety nine percent of the Airplanes cancelled So it directly have the impact of freight as well because almost fifty percent of the air freight actually commercial wise were made by the passenger flights in the cargo. So now what we're looking at is the majority of Weiser cancelled so the airports are not working for the function. So everything is really connected. You know when we're talking about on the we talk about on the supply chain because it has also connection on the freight forwarding the custom the shipping times The pricing so everything is really connected to each other so Chinese doing better than a month ago Definitely about right now. They are having problems of receiving orders from overseas. So I think this is going to have a big impact in an economy and the most of the suppliers are going to have some serious problem with the cash flow. Okay so what is so to try and summarize there's a lot of stuff is sort of half working a rule. Materials prices are up and Sounds like a lot of air freight by being constrained as wet sea freight so What's the biggest constraint them would you say is it still labor or do they have most labor back in place now always rule materials or is it logistics or is it just a combination of all of them a combination of all of them right now for the majority of the people come back to work? accepted where on where the wires started who bay province which is one of the largest state in China so they they start actually Now removing the people from printing some people are going back to their daily life. The best stuff so there are almost to the Portland million. People were a crunchy in and been Wuhan. Them include a province which was like almost two months long so those people are also going back to work in the different cities. Like you know. They're going back to their Factories again in Shanghai and Ningbo in Gone Doll and chat always like big CD. So they're going back to our so right now. The the issue is not really a about people who go back to work. Most of the people are back to work. So they're factors are okay to produce. They have enough human source now. Old Employees back to management is back toward but the the issues right now is mostly with the roll roll mattress players. It used to be maybe some of our friends. Our customers are used to produce in twenty to twenty five days now the supply chain Timing increased almost out say like church the fifty percent so now some of the facts are they used to produce thirty days now. It's like almost four to five days and one of the issue made him also. The people wouldn't think of it as the product box. The cartoon mocks so there is a big shortage of the cartoon box in the market. Like you know the shipping supplies And user manuals would like pay per prices increase a lot in China so this is editor problem some of the factories and they finish production but they don't have enough packing material so everything comes together so it. It's a really complex station. Like everything comes together and right now as I get logistics. We are having our shipments shipping on time. We have good relationship with our Contractors we everything in advance but we're asking our customers to not let us their shipment time the same day. The ship is ready. We're asking people to give us some time like heads up like seven to ten days so that we know what discounting because if you let safe you send us the breaking the law stay. It's difficult to find track of the crisis increase because they know that you're Khanna desperate so I think the most important thing for Amazon sellers now to be following up the station. Very closely their freight forwarders. Their factories is very very important to be on top of everything. Every day. I mean China's people are okay with that right now because you know it's difficult time reading for Sellers Abbott also for two suppliers because they don't have enough orders. They don't have good cash flow right now at most importantly they don't know when things go back to normal so they're trying to keep everything but it's very very important for settlers to be on top of everything the production time the pricing at payment terms One of the most important thing is the logistics Right now when FBI? Amazon USA is not allowing people to create shipments. Except the you know. The the baby products are essentials. Like cleaning stuff so most of the people even if they have product ready China they cannot create labels ask the factory put the labels on the carpet so they cannot really do the ship
Trapped In Wuhan During COVID-19 | Jen Knight
"Gen nine says that she won the in laws lottery when it comes to Chinese husband's parents but luck wasn't on our side this past January when a day after she arrived in her husband's hometown just outside of Wuhan for a Spring Festival celebration. The Chinese Government started shutting down all transit lakes into and out of the area effectively trapping her at ground. Zero of what would soon come to be known as the covert Nineteen Corona virus outbreak. She was as she easily admits terrified and filled isolated but what helped her feel less alone was participating in a study. That has china-based ex. Pats how they were feeling during the crisis and through two months of lockdown and plus two weeks of self isolation in an apartment in Shenzhen. Her notions of home have shifted. Or maybe she was just being made aware of a ship. That had already taken place. This is a really great conversation. And I'm thankful we were able to get this glimpse of what life was like for Ex pats in China as the global pandemic first emerged. I hope that you learn as much from her story is ided. Please sit back relax. Enjoy my conversation with JEN night. Gen night welcome to migratory patterns. Thank you so much for having me. Where is home so and I thought about how to answer this question. I came up with three answers. Three different places. One would be the place where I you know grew up and was raised which would be suburbia midwestern suburbia so a suburb of Milwaukee Wisconsin and a second place. That is home. Would Be San Francisco Bay area where I lived for eight years before I moved abroad and where my family is now. Located is in the North Bay and then the third place that I came up with it feels like home would be where I am right now. Which is my apartment in Shenzhen China? Where my husband is and my apartment is and jobs and life. I think in the first person with three answers. Oh really pretty sure. It's always interesting. Everyone's unique and I love how people will somehow work in where they're from originally some people you know there are few who like where I am now and all that stuff but I think the first TRIFECTA. I think if you'd asked me a few years ago it would have been just too but as I've gotten a little bit older I felt more strongly connected to my roots in a way and so I really wanted to add that third one in about where I came from because I think it's so important It's something that I wanted to leave behind when I left there at the age of eighteen nineteen. I was like goodbye. I Never WanNa see you again suburban Midwest. So let's talk about that so so suburban Midwest. Where exactly was that so it was in? It's a suburb of Milwaukee Wisconsin Like on the north side of town and it was it was a nice place to grow up and I've gone back a few times over the years. My family doesn't live there anymore. So the only real pull. I have our friends and people. I know who still live there but I found the last time that I returned which would have been seven years ago I think about. I felt I really felt the sense of home. It was so interesting so when you ask that question. That immediately came to my mind. That's interesting so you said you were looking to get out of there at eighteen. What was that all about? Was that Just sick of suburbia type thing? It's kind of an archetype in in the US. Yeah I was. I was always ready to get out from a pretty young age and my friend and I we just pointed at a map and there was Seattle and we had one friend who lived there who said we could sleep on his floor and we sold all of our stuff and bought backpacks and took the train for three days to Seattle the train. That's awesome. I love the train still was school. You were going to college or you just get out and I was just getting out. Although I ended up studying my undergraduate was in Washington state so I did live there for a number of years but interestingly it never felt like home so that is interesting so After so how did you get from? Let's say Seattle because that's kind of where you can set off on your journey. How did you get from Seattle to where you are now? What was that like? Well I my family had relocated to the San Francisco Bay area and I visited there one time before and felt really like a strong Paul to San Francisco and I went through some personal problems in While I was living in Seattle and I ended up packing up and moving and decided to relocate there and I just loved it I mean I had an amazing eight years living in San Francisco and I remember driving my used Acura over the Golden Gate Bridge like crammed with all of my stuff and I really felt that sense like this is going to be my home for awhile. Kinda cool this kind of cool so then you went to San Francisco. So what motivated jumped from San Francisco to overseas? That'd be fair. I Guess San Francisco can kind of feel like overseas from suburban Milwaukee. Well yeah so I made the first jump to Seattle and then from Seattle to San Francisco and I think San Francisco for me. I feel like I just had done it. I don't know how else to explain it. I just felt like I was John. Like I had done everything that I needed to do. There I had an amazing time. I met amazing people. I had incredible experiences. It's a beautiful place to live. There's so much to do. There was such a buzz. You know the entrepreneurial seen everything there when I was living there but I did feel like my time there was complete and I felt really unsure about what to do next and I ended up going to New York for a while and I went back to the Midwest for a while and I was really torn about my next move and sort of out of nowhere. The opportunity to teach in Shanghai came up and they said we have this job for you. You have two weeks to get here and I just went for it. What was the job? It was teaching in a school there but it was kind of a startup situation where I would be helping them. Start an American program within a Chinese school so it was a lot of curriculum development and teaching As well as some other like Adleman kind of stuff. It's a great way and so did you study to be a teacher when you're teaching in the US before you left. Yeah I had a California teaching credential and I got my master's from San Francisco State University so when I moved to San Francisco that was. That was the reason why was for a job that I got in Oakland Public Schools. So my background is very heavily in education is a teacher and I know what you guys do. So good on you for that work. Is You know you? Kinda got out at San Francisco. Probably right at the right time. It's just San Francisco to me. I've been there several times over the last few years last several years and San Francisco from to me feels like that really cool band. That sounded awesome but then sold out immediately and not quite as cool anymore. I love that analogy. Yes I could not agree more so so you hit China and did you say was shot high. Yeah Shanghai is where I lived I so for four years. Wow you've been bouncing all over the place where you did you. Did you go to Thailand for Awhile? Yes so after we were in Shanghai Shanghai four years we lived poop hat Thailand for two years and then we just moved back to China. Shenzhen last August. Well what great timing I actually right now. I'm pretty happy to be in Shenzhen overall right now I mean you know. Obviously we're this is the time of the time of Corona virus right now and it China. Ironically when the outbreak I happened so many people were streaming out of the country. And now there's tons of people who would love to be able to go back because they got a handle on it I it's Conan and argue at the methods but They've worked yes. Yes and I was at the epicenter of all of that so I I rode the roller coaster.

Stefan Krasowski on Visiting All 193 UN Countries
"Steffan Krzyzewski come from Minnesota in the US. I've I just recently gotten to one ninety three. UN countries which is why we're talking today. You bring me back for follow up. But I'm happy to be here I don't remember that comment but I'm glad to have you back and curious to hear a little bit of your final part of the journey and I just wanted overview a couple of different different things to remind the listener Remind us again. Why the love of travel was the catalyst what spurred your love for expiration in discovery like many many in my boat there? There's a collecting background. Where you you get interested in collecting different things and I did not travel much coach growing up? My parents not not active travelers so it was my high school junior year trip to China. We had started studying Chinese Back in fifth grade grade and went to China and traveled around and it was just eye-popping exciting thrilling and so as soon as I could I went to college and University of Pennsylvania Wharton School Philadelphia but spent semesters in Shanghai and Hong Kong and then moved to China right after graduating college. And the you've been in Hong Kong. I arranged at ride classes three days a week and just every every Wednesday night I would head the Shenzhen. See what buster overnight train rain was leaving in hop somewhere new and got addicted traveling in China going every province in in the country. And then step-by-step expanding out to the region and the wider world pulled out of curiosity. You didn't come from travel family. What's your family? Think of what you've done what you've accomplished in the travel world world totally supportive. Do they think you're a little crazy. What's going on when you get together for Thanksgiving? Oh I've got one wonderful parents sand and Brother who's a doctor and a scientist who's WHO's very different although we both Studied Chinese at the the same starting and he studied in China in highschool so my parents Prince of been extremely big about education that they work worked to put put us into the best schools that that we could get ourselves into an and get that environment and Mother reading to me every night Even when I developed an interest in books like James Bond or Tarzan in bucks as a as a first or second grader that would have pretty racy stuff she wouldn't our through and and Be Happy to expose me to to new ideas. A Matt so the circumstances weren't for for them to be traveling a huge amount growing up but they're always been very supportive and and As as both my brother and I got older than the I was living in China my parents did start traveling and in quite a quite a lot of times they visited me. TRAVELLED AROUND DOWN SO my father's a adult of million miler now so it's it's certainly not not anti travel in out of curiosity whose commander and his better yours or your brother. I should hope it's me because I still go back several times a year and actively do stuff with China and he hasn't significantly kept up with it since since going into medical school. I mean I know he did say at the time that Learning Anatomy class was pretty easy Z.. For him when when he had been studying Chinese characters for some time but when he was when he was at his best to you. As far beyond me reading classical Chinese the It's it's it's much more different than than say Latin. It was never a spoken language. The written Classical texts are incredibly hard. Pardon any was brilliant that I can. I can get through the first few sentences of the Dow ditching and and that which is which is hard enough but He was he was way beyond me as scholar. Could use to your brother in and Stephan. What was that inflection point? So you explain how you really were taking advantage of semesters abroad in Hong Kong China the region starting to explore like crazy. What was the moment when you decided to chase when ninety three? What was that light bulb moment? It was. It was somewhere around Azerbaijan Georgia Armenia trip that I took from China on one one of the holiday weeks that that China has an at that point I was had been to just about every country in Asia and and was loving it than in seeing the possibility awesome -bility of doing much more in learning learning about frequent flyer programs which was making some of these possible Places like the caucuses were connected to China. Southern routes in Chai from China and Could use my north west and then later when they became Delta Delta Miles on on these is trips so things that I thought were previously unattainable for time or cost reasons were suddenly feasible and and And I never I never had an interest to be a full time traveler even if I had unlimited resources for that I push myself very hard on trips. The I've I've taken several three week trips Only wash twice longer. Once a four week I think in the that was in Central and west Africa and a five week around the Pacific and I was so exhausted after three weeks of pushing myself that that is the the long term travel all thing wouldn't wouldn't fit for me and and professionally isn't isn't where my interest lies and and certainly not as it is where my marriage marriage would be taking me so the I like short intense trips. It but was there a day where you sat around and counted up the country's on the map happen you saw that you're at fifty or a hundred and then you read an article. What was that final? Push where you said okay. I've done this now. I can do that. There was more of a a different back back to that other by John. Looked at within. The cost was to get to Nakhichevan which is a separate part of other by John that on the Traveler Century Club list as a separate territory and it was it now? It's quite easy to visit in affordable all and more flights at that point it was it was looking that expensive and I decided I'm not going to get addicted to a crazy list like that and subsequently I've ended knocked divide and gotten addicted to that list but it was It wasn't it was it was Wasn't necessarily one day except perhaps perhaps when I got got to eat team more. So that was the last country in Asia that I hadn't been to and did say I went to to all this trouble to get east team or deal with Indonesian and flights which wonderful delightful country in many ways except traveling Logistically is Is One where a lot of things. Don't go to plan and and So once I got to East Timor as I'm going for the UN Stephan. You're last on counting countries actually November of twenty sixteen eighteen. And you're at one hundred eighty six countries at that point. But you didn't finish your you analyst until August of Twenty nineteen in for some travelers. That's a lifetime Some travelers as we know have done all one hundred ninety three during that same time period. So you took your time to finish off the last seven countries I want to focus on four of your final five two of them. I found pretty surprising in two. I didn't so your final countries was Italy. How did Italy early of all countries end up being one of your last countries? There were three that I was saving to the end of Italy Greece and Turkey and and Mainly not not so much animus. I'm really WANNA have a big party or something. It wasn't that it's it's I'm history is my favorite subject fascinated with ancient history. And all of those three are are are so special in central to to world history and world world civilizations that I wanted to to save them to really enjoy lavish in terms of time and and Destinations destinations trips to go. So that that was the original thinking and then What will get into why I got stuck on on a couple of others and so then finally I just? I just couldn't wait. These are wonderful places that I'll visit multiple times in my life but That that that roughly was the idea As well as the flip side is after seeing so many ancient Roman ruins in North Africa. That have this kind of thinking. Why should I go to Italy and see the crowds? But you know that's just that's just one of the ten thousand different things that are fantastic by deadly to to go see show as a history buff. You mentioned Italy Turkey Greece. What's a highlight for you? Visiting those countries by all of all of the above. I mean it's it's just incredible. How you You could pretty pick pick any point on the map and see multiple layers of of incredible history I mean what I. I walked off the plane Lina in Milan.

Ugly parks hopped on the subway and guide in and saw that and and So Italy I've really I've really just started. I've been a bit in the North's I've I've seen the Vatican again but I haven't properly visited row. I've been around Sicily different territories in. It's it's just pick your pick your time in history Greece more specifically the ancient In the ancient era I mean I just gets it gets incredible to. You're just driving down the road and you see the road sign Its Tab obeys in the ancient Also known as thieves. And now it's just a a scruffy scruffy town but just pull off the road and spend the night there because these names out of history are incredible and and the answer Turkey Turkey. I took a A road trip from von the famous Lake van in the Armenian Indian churches in the East and drove all the way across the country The the more or less southern route through the Kurdish areas than around the Jian coast and So many eras of history from the first Essentially I city of multi-level housing and that goes back back. Thousands of years all the way up to the modern times. I mean it's just I just couldn't i. I had take UNESCO sites off the list because there's only so many you you can see in a day it's It's incredible and Turkey actually. has this fantastic museum pass system where you can get the countrywide one or you can get one.

National Security Concerns Threaten Undersea Cable Project
"Our reporters found that national security concerns could jeopardize a massive undersea z. cable project that would link los angeles and hong kong google facebook and a chinese partner have already sunk hundreds of millions of dollars into it for more for details. Our charlie turner spoke with reporter kate o. keith in washington kate. This project is called the pacific light cable network. What company is building it. There's a hong kong company. That similarly named called pacific late data communication company. That's building this cable and the project is majority owned by a beijing aging based telecom operator which is called dr poem telecom and media group and google and facebook are major investors in the project who is raising concerns about the project you describe it as an opaquely run group of american agencies that provides national security recommendations to the f._c._c. rate <hes>. That's a definition shen for team telekom so the concerns about this. This project are coming from that team. Which is an ad hoc inter agency group that advises the f._c._c. The federal communications commission unlicensed applications involving telecommunications matters for background. The f._c._c. has always deferred to this team telekom in group so when they make a recommendation it's a really extremely important part of the process and in this case the department of justice which is actually the lead agency for team. Telekom is the agency that's raised the staunchest objections to this particular cable project so far and some other key players on the team include the the pentagon and also the department of homeland security but we're a little bit less clear on what their views are of this project at this time. What exactly are they worried about. Is it the cables else chinese investor well. That's part of it. I mean there's basically two main concerns that we're aware of one is the chinese government links that this company called dr peng has and the other is just the fact that this cable would provide a direct link to hong kong which is a chinese territory so in terms of dr peng the the majority owner of this cable project not a household name here but it's actually china's fourth biggest telecom operator and although it's a private telecommunications company it does have many many links to china's government which is the case with many chinese companies frankly so dr punks chairman is a former shenzhen government official and its subsidiaries have worked worked on a bunch of projects with chinese government entities. One of them was building a fiber optics surveillance network for beijing's police. The other aspect of the concern here you're from team. Telekom is decreasing autonomy of the chinese territory of hong kong. Which is where the cable land so hong kong is a special administrative have region of china which has always enjoyed many more freedoms than the rest of china and pro democracy protesters there have been having huge rallies for months protesting beijing's effort to efforts to integrate hong kong more closely with the mainland so in the past linked to hong kong would have actually been viewed as more secure potentially than a link to mainland china but that distinction is actually becoming less relevant by the day in the view of these u._s. Security regulators and i would think that the backdrop for this is the trade battles that are going on between the u._s. and china including all the tariffs that have been going back and forth. I mean yeah. There's there's just such an array of interlinked conflicts going on between the u._s. And china. I mean trade and economics is one part of it. I mean there's also interlinked concerns with economics and national security where you see you know arguments over i._p.

At this time because greenland is situated near the north pole and there's a possible north pole ship route that is going to beauty near future so you can see that greenland is near that and it does have certain potential in the future and so back to another another interesting economic benefits for trump that is because of his expertise because trump made a fortune in new york real estate market in oral sir lessons properties around the world so it appears to be casting the idea from perspective a developer. He said that it is our our large real estate deal and a lot of things can be done so he's considering about economic benefits in a so. He offered another argument.

The government of a semi autonomous danish territory insisted that the greenland was not for sale of course in he asked that greenland is not danish nash in greenland belongs to greenland and thought about the response from greenland side because you can see that both parties are arguing about it and and then it has responded that one local citizen said you can't just buy an island or people that sounds like something from euro of slavery colonial power so you can see that people are against it and at the same time the danish government also mentioned that they're interested in purchasing purchasing the u._s. in this entirety with exception of the government so when the u._s. going to buy greenland and denmark is going to buy you us so that's changed hawaiian or oscar yeah thank you.

If you leave the european union without a deal michael gov the minister in charge of coordinating no deal preparations said a such such a hypothesis was a just a worse case scenario. I think some of the concerns about i know deal brexit have been exaggerated. It's certainly the case that the will be bumps in the road some some element of disruption in the event of new but the document that has appeared in the sunday times was an attempt in the past to work what the very very worst situation would be so that we could take steps to mitigate that and we have taken steps not just to deal with some of the risks but also to make sure that our economy and our country are better place than ever to to leave the european union on october the thirty first the documents code-named appreciate yellowhammer came to light on sunday coincidentally so d- the government's armaments author to end all european laws applying ti brayton from august thirty first meanwhile prime minister boris johnson is going into trouble to friends this week doc on his first trip abroad other countries new leader for more on this joining us on the line is the phil perry editor of the an investigative news website in the u._k.

The "inverted yield curve" sparks recession fears
"But first we got to talk about the economy so we started to see the beginnings of the signs for recession now inverted yield curve that everybody is talking about which suggests that short term rates on the bonds are no higher than longer term yields a Denver yield curve proceeds recessions generally but those recessions can still be up to a couple of years off SO trying to suggest that the recession is right around the corner is probably incorrect with that said there's still a lot of fear about the future of the economy when the shorter term rates are higher than longer term bond yields then that generally expressed as a lot of uncertainty about the near term future people in other words are more sanguine about the possibility of long term growth than they are about the possibility of short term growth and that is why it's scaring people now president trump is sounding off about it he is suggesting that this is simply because the fed hasn't inflated currency enough there has been of quantitative quantitative easing he tweeted out we are winning big time against China companies and jobs are fleeing prices to us of not going up and in some cases have come down China is not our problem the Hong Kong is not helping our problem is with the fed raise it to much into fast is in terms of interest rates now too slow to cut spread is way too much as other countries say thank you to clueless J. pal and the federal reserve Germany and many others are playing the game crazy inverted yield curve all capitalized with an exclamation point we can easily be reaping the rewards and gains but the fed is holding us back we will win well it is it's sort of hard to suggest that the entirety of the global economy is resting on federal reserve policy when as we are seeing that they're a bunch of countries that are sliding into recessions and slower economic growth according to The Washington Post nine major economies around the world are in recession or on the verge of one raising fears that a global economic slowdown could help tip the United States into an economic contraction as well the ugly stock market drop on Wednesday began after bad news from two of the world's largest economies China reported the worst manufacturing output in seventeen years Germany said that its economy actually shrank in the spring well that would be the reason for a lot of the global recession talk now because the US economy is slowing down dramatically consumption is still high in the United States but there are a lot of other countries that are experiencing negative growth including Germany which really is the economic driver over in Europe many of the country slowing down or a recession and a common problem they're heavily dependent on selling goods overseas this is not a great time to have an export driven economy China slump and from trade war are both under cutting the global exchange of goods that help power the global economy for decades some of these countries are seeing sharp declines in exports also their problems that in in countries that have systemic problem so for example Argentina and Russia are both having serious currency issues and that is exacerbating trouble people are fleeing to gold and government bonds of course and that is why you are seeing that inverted yield curve people are fleeing to get involved in the bond market and that stealing all the outcomes well what exactly could stop all of this presumably if the trade war were to come to an end well the problem is right now is actually kind of a good time for a trade war because the fact is that the Chinese government has become more more aggressive trump isn't wrong to want some sort of competition with China or to see them as competitors in a zero sum game economics is not a zero sum game a global power is a zero sum game and economics as an aspect of global power is obviously crucial and Kate is one of the reasons why president trump has invoked a national security when you talk about terrace on China and you should be talking about that right now but he's sort of sending mixed signals about the linkage between trade for example and terrorists it's it's the link between trade and and the situation in Hong Kong it's become kind of bizarre so for example trump just said that president she's in pain should meet with the protesters is that a president she would meet directly and personally with the protesters there be a happy and latent ending to the Hong Kong problem I have no doubt which is very upbeat tweet from trump that post came one day after trump tweeted yet zero doubt that she could quickly and humanely solve the Hong Kong problem there are multiple reports that trump had actually reached out to sea and promised him that he would not interfere in the ongoing dispute between the people of Hong Kong and the Chinese government the Chinese government is preparing some sort of action they began massing a paramilitary force in the nearby southern city of Shenzhen prompting US lawmakers of both parties warned Beijing against violently cracking down on the protests senator Cory Gardner of of Colorado Republicans as the administration must make clear to Beijing any crackdown in Hong Kong will have profound consequences for China including imposition of US sanctions which was included in my amendment that passed the Senate as part of the national defense authorization act up is a really dicey period and China is not looking like they're going to back down here they continue to propagandize to their own youth The Washington Post reporting that the youth of China very angry at Hong Kong because of all the propaganda being put out by the Chinese media at this point Washington post as are they angry units are the useless use that's the debate on China's answer to Twitter this week as young Chinese pile score on their peers in Hong Kong we've been protesting for eleven straight weeks to avoid the kinds of restrictions of the control mainlanders did the motherland give you too much freedom one woman using the name very bad band wrote mockingly and a popular web post away though I hope these angry youths in Hong Kong realized their father is always your father well the fact is that the the sorts of policies pushed by the Chinese were explicitly barred by the deal done with the British when the British abandon Hong Kong in the late nineties when the way was a mistake the fact is the western presence in South Korea is what prevented from becoming at North Korea the fact is it was western presence in Hong Kong that prevented Hong Kong from simply come in China for all the talk about colonialism imperialism which were unjustified in their original origins the fact is that western presence in non western countries very often has meant more freedom for those countries than American abandonment of those countries just ask the people of Vietnam as the people of North Korea there's a there's a reason the Hong Kong protestors are waiting at the American flag he deeply negative view that is often pervade about American our role in the world that America imposes its belief that America is nasty and cruel that America is responsible for all the deprivations in the world a B. why is the fact that we're America's footprint shrinks freedom also shrinks where America's footprint grows historically freedom also grows whether you're talking about the American footprint in Iraq and the abandonment of rock in two thousand eleven leading to the right of ice rise of ISIS or whether you're talking about the American abandonment of Vietnam or whether you're talking about the British abandonment of Hong Kong the fact is that it was in the attempt to grab up gobble up territory and use it for your own devices was initiated horribly wrongly never should have been done but the abandonment of those countries has not exactly been a boon for a huge number of those countries as it turns out a lot of the countries that were victims of imperialism I still more free than surrounding countries that were never victims of imperialism histories complex that way just because something was evil and unjustified its origins doesn't mean that the complete and final effects of that activity end up being worse for the people who live now again it doesn't justify the original action but the fact is that Hong Kong would be better off right now under British auspices in Chinese auspices it was a mistake for the British to abandon Hong Kong to the Chinese the fact that so many people in the west are focused on the flaws of the west rather than acknowledging that the world is a complex and dangerous place is actually quite dangerous

"Smartphone maker and the world's largest manufacturer of telecommunications gear? And while way is the face of the Trump administration's trade war and economic tensions with China. The US has mostly banned American companies from doing business with walkway and pressured other countries to stop using always networking gear saying, it could be as to spy for the Chinese government, not surprisingly while way is on a PR offensive, the company invited several journalists including marketplace, senior correspondent, Scott Tong for a factory tour and meetings at it Shenzhen headquarters. I asked him how executives are feeling about the situation. They feel angry. I spent several years in China. I'm ethnic Chinese a chain is a pretty good at hiding their emotions. It's clear. A lot of people are angry about this. They feel that they have been picked, on for political reasons by the US. Government that they're upon in this broader fight. They also are kind of scratching their heads because this isn't a part of China, that is the, the private sector, Silicon Valley of China, as it were, you know, they feel like this is a private sector company that ahead to compete with the state owned companies it has had to compete with the foreign companies to gain access and win in China and to win in the world. So as they see it, you know, it's totally not, what this company is about the counter to that. Of course, is that in China, if the intelligence services really said, you know, we need to tap, you on shoulder, and we did a tap your wires. A lot of people think it'd be pretty hard for this company to say. No. And as we know it was also pretty hard for US telecommunications companies to say no to the US government. Right. Right. Well, the other question, I guess, is did you get a sense about concern for the future of the business because of? Of this, you know, pretty sustained assault from the US administration, this kind of blackballing. They hope will be adopted worldwide. Absolutely. And they, they said as much this company as big questions about whether it can still buy important electric components from the United States, whether it's hardware, whether it software. So they're trying to check the supply chain. They're trying to see what they can bring back in a Chinese soil, or certainly, just out of Merican soil. There are some level of scrambling here. They also say that in the long run, they think they can get through this, and that is part of the, of the company history. The company made an explicit decision to say, you know, we're going to kind of DIY we're going to learn how to make semi conductors by ourselves. They optimistically, think they've been through this before, but certainly in the short term, it's going to be problematic. Well, you just as a quick follow up. Can you give us more details about the automated assembly line? I know it sounds like there's. I'm pretty charming details about the robots on the floor there. Yeah. So there are maybe eight or nine humans on this pretty long assembly line. So I it's mostly robots making the thing in the first place. So after the phone is out and boxed, a robot comes by to take each phone or each set of phones to wherever they need to go, and first of all, when they see a human being, they know how to slow down and can awake for the human beings to cross. And then when a robot season another robot. In a very polite Asian way. So as not to create some kind of a collision one of them says I in excess excuse me in Chinese before passing. So. Nice little touch for to show the westerners. I mean, I am I have to say that I am not aware of any other factories that have robots that takes skis me that all by itself is a technical achievement. No. I've been in a lot of factors I for me.

"I think it's about it's in both parties interests to to come to Sunday agreement. But again this similar as your colleagues had previously. It's about execution than really proving that something is done that. I don't think there's an easy solution to all this. I don't think there is going to be an easy solution. Michael very good morning to you. What I do wanna get sense of is there is progress. Okay. Do you want to be more structuring long Japan equities are Chinese equities? We were doing a number of the day today on the Shanghai Shenzhen CSI three hundred is the lowest valuation since twenty fourteen where do you want to be positioned for success in the equity trade in Asia? Hello. Question. But I think our Chinese friends have taught us to have a little bit more of a sense of history. And then also potentially longer-term thinking, you mentioned two thousand fourteen I think it's important to remember that the Chinese stimulus after the subprime crisis actually led to the researchers of global growth now, we are ten years into the cycle, and we are late stage cycle and potentially going into this year. We potentially see slowdown in the global economy and also increasingly looks like weaker earnings coming coming in apple Samsung, and also the Chinese car maker. Guidances disappointing. So I think that to you also your question I would still cautious. I would use this euphoric sentiment rallies. That hopes that there's an outcome to the trade war. I would actually reduce risk exposure. Because I think that this year potentially could be no down here. I mean, if you think about the Wall Street community was very constructive. On on equities. Last year was eight percent upside we ended the six percent down. And I think many people are still too optimistic even today, especially in two thousand nine hundred ninety. Doesn't sound to me like you're cautious. Sounds to me like you're right defensive in your latest research you say load up on goal. The gold is again one of these. I mean since we spoke about China. I think the Chinese central Bank is the first year two years that they increased gold gold holdings. And I think the other question is what is increasingly save money. The euro has challenges the dollar is the United States dollar in the county pay their own people in the government shutdown, of course, many people locally think it's not a big issue. But it ultimately damages confidence in the win the world's reserve currency and more people seem to realize that goal to save money and gold is also very much out of favour with investors, technically, it's increasingly looks looks technically bullish to the upset in my view.

"It was an investor in flip cart, and I think it was reportedly position to make like three billion dollars went flip carte, sold a majority of it's a business to WalMart. Earlier this year. It was an investor in glass door which sold to Japanese HR company recruit holdings earlier this year for one point, two billion. I don't know if that was a great return for them, but it was returned better than nothing. It was also an investor in Spotify which right now is worth thirty billion dollars. So we see some of the same names winning big in two thousand eighteen. It's it's interesting to me. Also another China based company just went public. This is four year old Shenzhen China China-based ex-financial which is a company that I don't think we've been necessarily tracking here in the us, but it's kind of like a lending club and it's it's, it's it's, you know, much younger company and actually, you know, peer to peer lending minder standing is much newer in China, although it kind of took off in such a way that I had read in Reuters back in June that something like. Two hundred and something companies had actually like folded. So hundreds of companies like sprung up around the idea of peer to peer lending. Some of them folded, I guess, you know, there was concern that the companies aren't being regulated tightly enough. So maybe it's no surprise that this company went public in the US, but it's interesting that it's kind of got these headwinds, and it seems to be doing pretty well. Do you do anything about exponential Jimmy? Whoa. We've China as an insider's game, I mean, and and for us to service there and look at it, you you figure out that they're probably had some regulators wanting them to succeed and wanted to have some feel for who they're lending to and what the the amounts are. And I, it looks like a pretty solid company. And you know, again, it's it's a big trend of Chinese IPO's back NASDAQ last Thursday. And over a third of the IPO's this year are from China over half are. Well, I didn't realize quite it was quite that high. Well, there was another company that we talked about last week that I, I'm so confused by a Jamie, maybe maybe you can make sense of it, but Neo Neo is this electric car company that has sort of positioned itself as a rival to tesla, but it is really like very much a startup. I mean, this company made something like seven million dollars in the first half of this year. It lost five hundred million dollars yet it went public. And so guys, we were talking about this last week, and I think like as we were on the podcasts, we were laughing saying, oh, IPO terribly. And then we took a notebook on it was the second day of trading and all of a sudden it was shooting up and I'm not sure where it's trading today, but I think it's sort of held up. Why is this company suddenly interesting to investors. While there's a couple reasons one and I'm not saying there good reasons, but explain what's going on. I think first of all, it's got of a cult following along the high end electric vehicles like tesla does, and one of the things that we don't fully comprehend as if you're living in Shanghai and you want to own a car, you'll pay over ten thousand dollars a year for licensed on the car. So the likelihood is you'll buy a high end car. You're not going to buy..
